But we can’t quite believe it’s been nine years, and the quirky town has never looked better.Netflix’s A Year in the Life four-part revival is a treasure trove for all die-hard Gilmore Girls fans who have missed the fast-paced dialogue and pop culture references of the titular mother-and-daughter duo. “Haven’t done that in a while,” says Lorelai after a particularly huge sentence. “Felt good,” replies Rory. You bet it does.Pretty much every character you loved (or hated) is back in some way or another. The script is as fresh and slick as ever, and it is somehow both nostalgic yet fits right into the TV landscape of 2016.Here is the official trailer:All four 90-minute episodes will be available on Netflix at 12:01 AM on Friday, November 26th.Use this link to read the complete, spoiler-free review.

In response to increasing population densities in the suburbs, the Australian government over 10 years ago introduced strict town planning guidelines specific to residential projects. Dual occupancy developments are new dwellings inserted into backyards of existing houses with a min. ‘leftover’ area of 300m2. In addition to planning constraints defined by setbacks from the title boundary, the proposal had to be single storey, provide facility for 2 car parking spaces, outdoor amenity areas and steer clear of existing unbuildable sewer and water supply infrastructure. In summary, the remaining buildable area translated to no more than 140m2. Due to the high labour cost of building in Australia and in the interest of reasonable return in capital; the maximum and efficient use of the site is inevitable and mandatory. Save this picture!© Nils KoenningDespite the challenge posed by the pragmatics of the site, the architectural intent had to remain and drive the project. The site is flanked on all sides of conventional brick veneer dwellings typical to most Australian suburbs. The challenges of the site extrapolated a transparent building, the intent being that a clear line of sight would artificially enlarge the building. By dissolving the walls, the building feels more expansive than it actually is. It is awash with light, the transparency allows for constant glimpses and unexpected visual connections thereby encouraging physical engagement. The widths of the room or spaces are kept to a minimum to keep the structure simple and save on costs. Save this picture!© Nils KoenningThere is not a single steel beam or column. The study to the laundry flare out dimensionally and in sequence as deemed necessary by the pragmatics of functionality specific to the use of those rooms. Money saved were consequently spent on better finishes and environmentally sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting for toilet flushing, garden taps and higher quality insulation materials. The external cladding selected does not require an applied finish. The vertical slot window to the study is a leftover timber structural member found and fabricated onsite. The building’s overshadowing pattern is used as shade rather than constructing a separate roof covering. Often in dual occupancy developments, physical title boundaries are blurred, where private, public and common property begins and terminates.Save this picture!© Nils KoenningThe proverbial Australian timber paling fence is celebrated, a material used in practically every building typology throughout Australia and consistent with the Australian vernacular. It is abstractly applied to the entry door to explicitly delineate where ‘private’ begins and a reminder of what was previously there.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessKickstarter Campaign Aims to Transform Denver Parking Lot into Outdoor ClassroomArchitecture NewsThe City of Fort Lauderdale Votes in Favor of BIG’s Marina LoftsArticles Share 2013 photographs: Nils KoenningPhotographs: Nils Koenning+ 15 Share Paling Fence House / NASA Houses 2013 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/372439/paling-fence-house-nasa Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeNASAOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on May 17, 2013Cite: “Paling Fence House / NASA” 17 May 2013.

Located in San Francisco’s Mission District, a neighborhood known for its history and diversity, the Harrison St House adds a modern counterpoint to the urban context while creating a secluded sanctuary for a young family. Drawing on the courtyard-house typology, the project centers around an interior garden, which is the first space one experiences when entering from the street.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Joe FletcherConceived as a home in two parts, the more private functions of the house take place in the newly built 2-story structure at the rear of the lot, while opposite the courtyard, a remodeled front building is used for more social functions and gatherings. Designed to celebrate the owners’ love for gardening and spending time outdoors, the ground floor living space opens onto the courtyard with a set of lift and slide doors. Materially, the exposed concrete flooring at the interior extends into the garden, dissolving into a series of linear pavers, interspersed with lines of a drought-tolerant sedum.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherWhile maintaining a compact footprint, the new house has an open kitchen/living room, half bath and garage on the ground floor, and 2 bedrooms and 1 bath upstairs. A flush wall of cabinetry offers storage and a display area without encroaching upon the space. The primary bedrooms and bathroom are on the upstairs level of the house, where an exposed rafter ceiling and bleached Douglas Fir floors give warmth and rhythm to the spaces. A lightwell brings fresh air into the hallway and nursery while also providing an outdoor space for the kids to play.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherAcross the courtyard stands the existing structure on the lot, an early Italianate-style commercial building with a butterfly roof. Originally built in 1888 to be a saloon and home for the bar’s proprietor, the building had seen many uses over the years, but had fallen into disrepair by the time the property was purchased by the current owners.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherSave this picture!PlansWanting to preserve the historic character of the space, the existing wood structure and ceiling rafters were refinished and left exposed, while the old windows, floors and finishes were replaced, creating a greater sense of continuity with the new house. Keeping with a subtle palate of natural wood tones and white surfaces, the front house was designed to be a relaxed social space, where kids’ playtime and afternoon lounging can easily evolve into an evening dinner party.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherSave this picture!© Joe FletcherAn onsen-inspired bathroom complete with a cedar-lined sauna and outdoor tub/shower, encourage relaxation and the spirit of communal bathing while a custom, hand-painted mural by a local painter enlivens the space. Drawing on contextual cues, the primary façade of the new structure echoes the traditional, horizontal siding seen on the front house and throughout the neighborhood, while offering a playful interpretation of scale and materiality.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherWhile the house enjoys its inner garden and cloister-like character, a major aim of the project was to give back to the neighborhood through the creation of a public green space along the street edge. To do so, large sections of the sidewalk surrounding the house were removed to create large planter beds, which the owners tend.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherProject gallerySee allShow lessVodka Palace House / Marcus Browne architectSelected ProjectsBunsen Restaurant / MESURASelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeRyan Leidner ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRestorationSan FranciscoUnited StatesPublished on June 11, 2019Cite: “Harrison St. House / Ryan Leidner Architecture” 11 Jun 2019.

in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Increasing pool losses and riding shares of delinquent loans muted the positive credit effects of recent settlements, according to a release sent by Moody’s analysts on Tuesday.The influx of $7.35 billion of settlement proceeds to deals involving outstanding Countrywide residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) was not large enough to significantly affect the transactions’ credit profile going forward, according to the statement.“The $7.35 billion of settlement proceeds distributed thus far to the “settling trusts” we rate accounted for only 9.6% of our current projection of those trusts’ lifetime losses, and the majority of the transactions have delinquency pipelines greater than 10% of current balance,” Moody’s said.Distributions were credit positive for only a limited number of bonds, with 7 percent of bonds recording more than a 10 percent increase in credit enhancement with 19 percent of bonds upgraded.Bond from deals with low settlement shares still benefited because of waterfall features, while the credit profile of bonds from deals with large settlement shares but weak pool performance remain unchanged.“Ultimately, the underlying pool performance, in conjunction with transaction specific waterfall features, and not just the settlement amount factored into the impact of the recoveries,” Moody’s said.On average, the distribution of $7.35 billion from $8.5 billion of the Countrywide settlement funds to Countrywide RMBS bonds Moody’s rates covered 9.5% of the lifetime net loss they project on Alt-A, 9.9% of subprime, 9.9% of prime jumbo and only 9.5% of option ARM product lines.“In addition, the majority of transactions have delinquency pipelines greater than 10 percent,” Moody’s said.The distributions were credit positive for a small number of bonds, as it resulted in partial recoveries of bond losses and minimal to-no write-ups of subordinated bonds that had sustained losses. Of bonds in the major asset classes, 68 percent displayed no positive growth in credit enhancement and 7 percent of bonds displayed an increase in credit enhancement of more than 10 percent. As nearly 61 percent of Countrywide deals had no subordinate bonds prior to the settlement and only 14 deals had subordinate tranches written up from zero, the recoveries, even those as large as 30 percent of the May pool balance, did not offset the depletion of credit enhancement and or losses already incurred on these bonds.

The cost and benefits of territorial tenure, and factors affecting mating success in male Antarctic fur seals
The timing, location and duration of territorial tenure, and the mating success and return rates of male Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella) were measured over four consecutive breeding seasons (1984–87) on Bird Island (54°00’S, 38°02’W), South Georgia. Tenure duration (days) followed a heavily skewed, Poisson-like distribution (median 13.08 days, maximum 75 days) and was positively related to the number of years of tenure (rs= 0.52, P < 0.0001). Mating success was also biased to a few individuals and was positively correlated to both duration of tenure (days) and the previous number of years in which tenure was achieved (P 0.05 in both cases). The probability of a male returning to hold a territory in the next year was not related to the number of years tenure that had been achieved (P > 0.7) or to the level of mating success in the current year (P > 0.15). It was, however, positively related to the duration of tenure in the current year (P < 0.0001). The overall annual return rate was 43% which is not significantly different from the survival rate for the general male population and suggests that territorial tenure does not contribute to increased mortality in male Antarctic fur seals.
Recent environmental change and trace metal pollution in World Heritage Bathurst Harbour, southwest Tasmania, Australia
Bathurst Harbour in World Heritage southwest Tasmania, Australia, is one of the world’s most pristine estuarine systems. At present there is a lack of data on pollution impacts or long-term natural variability in the harbor. A ca. 350-year-old 210Pb-dated sediment core was analysed for trace metals to track pollution impacts from local and long-range sources. Lead and antimony increased from AD 1870 onwards, which likely reflects remote (i.e. mainland Australian and global) atmospheric pollution sources. Variability in the concentrations of copper and zinc closely followed the history of mining activities in western Tasmania, which began in the AD 1880s. Tin was generally low throughout the core, except for a large peak in AD 1989 ± 0.5 years, which may be a consequence of input from a local small-scale alluvial tin mine. Changes in diatom assemblages were also investigated. The diatom flora was composed mostly of planktonic freshwater and benthic brackish-marine species, consistent with stratified estuarine conditions. Since mining began, however, an overall decrease in the proportion of planktonic to benthic taxa occurred, with the exception of two distinct peaks in the twentieth century that coincided with periods of high rainfall. Despite the region’s remoteness, trace metal analyses revealed evidence of atmospheric pollution from Tasmanian and possibly longer-range mining activities. This, together with recent low rainfall, appears to have contributed to altering the diatom assemblages in one of the most pristine temperate estuaries in the world.
