The project is a 600m2 house in Curitiba, the capital of the state of Paraná in southern Brazil. The project was conceived on the first visit to the site: “Two perpendicular prismatic volumes in concrete, glass and steel, in the middle of city’s Atlantic Forest reserve”, Guilherme Torres.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioOne of the main points of the project was to create wide open spaces, surrounded by the native lush green and at the same time create an intimate atmosphere. To achieve this effect, the house has several “skins” that undress as the architecture unfolds. Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioOn the ground floor, a large wall of “cobogos” – prefabricated concrete partition elements, typical of contemporary Brazilian architecture – create a first texture that, mixed with the landscape composed only of Texas Grass, signed by Alex Hanazaki landscape architect, reveals the depth of the Project, without showing exactly what has behind it. A sensual play of light and shadows. Likewise, the upper block hides all the windows under the protection of a wooden brise.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioThe program, developed for a couple with their children, was created establishing two living areas, one wing serves as a formal lounge and the other dedicated to the family, which has access to the garage. This first architecture element emerges from the structure designed by the architect in order to evidence marks of the wood used in the forms that shaped the concrete walls of the house. A detail that is transforms it effect according to the incidence of light on the purposely heterogeneous and rough surfaces of the concrete, as if this wood had turned into stone.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioThis almost wabi sabi effect (the beauty of imperfection, according to Japanese philosophy) was explored in the choice of all materials: in the marbles of the floors and in the woods of the walls and linings. The most important thing was to bring all the natural elements to a brutalistic essence, creating a welcoming feeling that perfectly matches the climate of the city, particularly cold in relation to the Brazilian tropical climate.Save this picture!© Denilson Machado – MCA EstúdioProject gallerySee allShow lessCedar House / JPE Design StudioSelected ProjectsFamily Lar Apartment / Paulo Moreira ArchitecturesSelected Projects Share Guilherme Torres “COPY” Lead Architect: Year: ArchDaily Area: 1200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio Guilherme TorresOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsLandscapeCuritibaResidential ArchitectureBrazilPublished on December 25, 2020Cite: “PA House / Studio Guilherme Torres” [Casa PA / Studio Guilherme Torres] 25 Dec 2020.

The complaint has been filed by the law school students, urging that they be granted some relief in the upcoming semester fee, in view of the “enormous economic stress”. On June 27, the University administration notified a requisition of full fees for the upcoming semester (INR 1,13,500/-), payable latest by 10th July, post which date the late fee will be charged starting from INR5,000/- and increasing in progression thereafter. Over 600 students from the University have opposed this requisition and have made an application to the NHRC stating: “There has been enormous economic stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and extended lockdowns on our families. Further, due to the premature closure of campus and the subsequent declaration of Summer Vacations, a major portion of fees already paid for the semester remains unutilized. Thereafter, the requisition of such a hefty amount at such a short notice period has made us economically vulnerable adding to our woes. For the reasons as aforesaid, and detailed in the main application, we are not willing to pay any fees apart from tuition fees. We request you to understand our plight and intervene to grant us appropriate relief(s) as detailed in the Main Application attached herewith.” In related news, a PIL has been filed in the Andhra Pradesh High Court seeking waiver of fees and cancellation of semester examinations for the students of the Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University (DSNLU), Vizag. A petition has also been filed in the Supreme Court against payment of full school fees, and seeking waiver of private school fees for a period of three months starting April 1 till July 1 2020 during lockdown. The issue has also been a subject of challenge before various High Courts, whose stance may be Read Here. Click Here To Download Complaint Read Complaint Next Story
ABC News(NEW YORK) — The latest winter storm tracked from the Midwest to the Northeast overnight, delivering snow from the Plains into New England.Des Moines, Iowa, saw 8 to 10 inches of snow on Sunday, as Wisconsin, northern Illinois and parts of Michigan each saw a few inches, creating low visibility and hazardous traveling conditions.Mixed precipitation was reported early Monday morning north of New York City. South of there, major cities including Philadelphia and Washington saw mostly rain. Locally, some areas in Rhode Island and Massachusetts could see 4 inches of snow Monday morning as winter weather advisories remained in effect throughout much of the region.Southern Colorado and northern Arizona saw about 6 inches of snow overnight, with colder air tracking in behind the system as it headed east. Parts of Interstate 5 in California saw delays because of snowfall.A new major storm is expected to develop on Tuesday. Snow likely will be confined west of the Great Plains through the early morning, with evening snow forecast in parts of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.More dangerous than these snowfalls, however, will be heavy and persistent rainfalls in the Mississippi River Valley.From Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday, the new storm will push into the Northeast, which again should expect another round of snow and then a winter mix.More than 6 inches of snow is possible for parts of Iowa as well as northern Virginia and West Virginia, with a swath of the Mississippi River Valley potentially seeing 4 inches of rain, causing a moderate risk of flash flooding.This weather pattern should persist into the weekend and more storms will follow a similar track, meaning several rounds of heavy rain are expected in the Southeast. Some parts of the South may see 6 to 10 inches, raising the risk of flooding throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Tennessee and Kentucky.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Managing fisheries in an ecologically sensitive manner demands that catches do not depress stocks within the foraging areas used by predators to levels that reduce their reproductive success or survival. Spatially–explicit bioenergetics models that estimate the amount of prey consumed by predators are required to inform such policy. These models require information on the number of predators in a population, their nutritional demands, their diet composition and their seasonal distribution in the marine environment. This paper reviews all published information on the diet and at-sea distribution of the six penguin species that breed in the CAMLR Convention Area, the methods used to collect these data and the uncertainties inherent in them. The review will be of utility to modellers as a source of parameters, and to penguin biologists by providing comparative information for their own findings and by highlighting significant gaps in existing knowledge and methods that could be used to fill these.
New observations at South Georgia (an extremely intense source of gravity waves) are used to evaluate model simulations of gravity waves and wakes, paving the way for improved understanding of these important phenomena. Gravity waves (GWs) play an important role in many atmospheric processes. However, the observations-based understanding of GWs is limited, and representing them in numerical models is difficult. Recent studies show that small islands can be intense sources of GWs, with climatologically significant effects on the atmospheric circulation. South Georgia, in the South Atlantic, is a notable source of such “small island” waves. GWs are usually too small scale to be resolved by current models, so their effects are represented approximately using resolved model fields (“parametrization”). However, the “small island” waves are not well represented by such parametrizations and the explicit representation of GWs in very high resolution models is still in its infancy. Steep islands such as South Georgia are also known to generate low-level wakes, affecting the flow hundreds of kilometers downwind. These wakes are also poorly represented in models. We present results from the South Georgia Wave Experiment (SG-WEX) for 05 July 2015. Analysis of GWs from satellite observations are augmented by radiosonde observations made from South Georgia. Simulations were also made using high-resolution configurations of the Met Office Unified Model (UM). Comparison with observations indicates that the UM performs well for this case, with realistic representation of GW patterns and low-level wakes. Examination of a longer period simulation suggests that the wakes generally are well represented by the model. The realism of these simulations suggests they can be used to develop parametrizations for use at coarser model resolutions.
Attorney Reprimanded For Handling Of Adoption CaseOlivia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comThe Indiana Supreme Court has publicly reprimanded a Hamilton County adoption attorney who failed to inform his clients that a birth mother they planned to adopt a baby from had chosen someone else to adopt her child.In the disciplinary case against Steven Kirsh, In the Matter of Steven M. Kirsh, Respondent, 29S00-1703-DI-154, Steven Kirsh was hired by clients to represent them in an intended adoption with a birth mother, who had tentatively agreed to allow the clients to adopt her baby after its birth. However, when the birth mother expressed concerns to Kirsh about the clients adopting the child and asked for profiles of other prospective parents, Kirsh provided the additional profiles, prompting the birth mother to select another couple to adopt the child.Kirsh did not discuss any of these facts with his clients until after the birth mother selected a different set of adoptive parents. Further, while the attorney did have other prospective adoptive parents sign conflict-of-interest waivers, he failed to have the clients sign one.Then, when Kirsh and his clients began discussing a partial reimbursement of fees the clients advanced, he presented them with a release form that purported to bar the clients from filing a “claim” with the Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission. The clients refused and instead retained separate counsel while they considered a legal malpractice suit, though the parties were eventually able to reach a settlement.Meanwhile, the disciplinary action against Kirsh was opened in March 2017, and the parties agreed he had violated Indiana Professional Conduct Rules 1.7(a), 1.8(b) and 8.4(d). Those rules relate to prohibitions against representing a client when the representation may be materially limited by responsibilities to another person; using client information to the disadvantage of the client without their consent; and engaging in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice.In an order dated Sept. 8, the Indiana Supreme Court determined the appropriate discipline was a public reprimand against Kirsh. The costs of the proceeding are also assessed against him.The order was signed by Justice Steve David as acting chief justice. All justices concurred except Chief Justice Loretta Rush, who did not participate.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
Hovis has filled its long-vacant position of chief executive today with former Dairy Crest managing director Martyn Wilks. The appointment comes three months after former chief executive Bob Spooner’s departure to become chief supply officer at Treasury Wine Estates.Wilks held the post of executive managing director at Dairy Crest from 2007 to March this year and has been credited with developing its innovation capability and playing a key role in the development of its brands.Nish Kankiwala, Hovis executive chairman, said: “Martyn has extensive experience in a business that is very similar to our own.
