United Therapeutics, a pharmaceutical company in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park, needed a 5136-square-foot field house for an Olympic-sized soccer field built for employees and their families. The structure needed to provide changing areas, showers, and restrooms for two teams of 10 to 12 people, as well as a gathering area with a fireplace. The structure also had to accommodate necessary support spaces—maintenance/storage room, mechanical/electrical rooms—and each changing room needed a janitor’s closet. Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonThe field house creates a dramatic gateway to the soccer field. The teams pass through a stone “wall” via a central breezeway with changing areas on either side of the breezeway. Six-foot-deep roof overhangs provide “porches” on the entry (east) and field (west) sides of the building. The outdoor Gathering Area is located at the southern end of the building. Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonRegionally appropriate construction materials include native building stone, cypress siding, cypress tongue-in-groove ceilings and soffits, and ground-concrete-and-bluestone floors.

Gazebo was originally a pump house of the state-owned marble factory. As time goes by, the marble factory has been abandoned for a long time, and with the development of the city, the pump house has become a bustling urban area.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangThe pump house is located at the northwest corner of the site, and the tall metasequoia forest densely planted on the northeast side and the climbing vines covered on the broken outer wall cover the sun for the pump house. The indoor temperature in summer is about five to six degrees lower than the outdoor. it is a great place to relax in the office park.Save this picture!Location AnalysisInterior space of the original pump room is relatively closed, and the façade has only two small windows for lights and ventilation. “Gazebo” means people can stop and rest. In order to adapt to the new function as a gazebo.  Under the premise of retaining vertical force transmission members, we opened the facade maximally. We inserted three flat long windows into the facade. it makes the interior space and exterior landscape be combined, then the feeling of gazebo has been created. A door window was inserted into the southern facade.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangThe lowered window hole extends the sight to the depths of the jungle. The upper brick wall has been white painted after the original decoration had been removed, So the original material texture is revealed clearly. At the same time, the towering indoor space and the low level band-shaped opening form. Spatial contrast in vertical and horizontal directions.Save this picture!Dismantled isometricThe warm color wall washers are installed on the four brick columns to light the upper part, so that the texture of the brick wall is fully displayed. At the same time, the lighting fixtures are not directly seen from the outside, and the lighting effect is softer.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangThe low window hole also allows the building to retain a large number of solid walls, thus retaining the sense of volume of the original building. So that after the renovation is completed, the building can still retain the rough and stocky style of the previous pumping station. “Minimumly disturb the original silent atmosphere” is our finalgoals .Save this picture!© Tianyi WangThe original pump house is a one floor brick-concrete mixed structural building. In order to form the “Gazebo” intention, the original vertical force-transmitting member (original brick wall) is greatly weakened after four enlarged window holeswas inserted. In order to continuously transfer the load of the upper wall and the reinforced concrete roof panel to the foundation, the four window holes are designed as a reinforced concrete rigid frame composed of structural columns and cross beams, so that the vertical force transmission system can be continuous.Save this picture!Perspective SectionThe arc-shaped cross beam has an outward overturning moment with respect to the line connecting the two supporting points. In order to make the structure more reasonable, the concrete slab is extended from the bottom of the cross beam toward inner space. This slab can balance the overturning moment, and at the same time, four deep windows hole has been created to shade sunshine and proof rainwater.A 15mm wide  drainage groove is reserved on the concrete windowsill, and a rainwater pipe is hide under the windowsill.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangAfter the long time of disrepair, this time we repainted the original brick wall façade, on the hand, the newly reinforced concrete structure system are made of exposed concrete, so that the retained part and the newly inserted part are visible at a glance. And at the same time, the relation of orginal and new structure system is clearly revealed.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangSummary: In this renovation project, under the premise of satisfying the new function of gazebo, we try to use the most simple and restraint method and the appropriate scale and proportion to retain the characteristics of the original building and the quiet atmosphere of original site.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangDuring the construction process, the vines on the outer wall were destroyed, but now, some new creepers had climbed onto the wall again.  We hope the facade can be recovered by creepers and the traces of the renovation can’t be seen as the summer comes again.Save this picture!© Tianyi WangProject gallerySee allShow lessEscuela Banciaria y Comercial Aguascalientes / Ignacio Urquiza, Bernardo Quinzaños, …Selected ProjectsAurus Sales Pavilion / Abin Design StudioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:188# Longwu Road, Xuhui District, Shanghai, ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Assuming both sides make additional progress, we will be planning a Summit for President Xi and myself, at Mar-a-Lago, to conclude an agreement. A very good weekend for U.S. & China!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 24, 2019On Monday, Trump told a group of governors at the White House, “It looks like they’ll be coming back quickly again and we’re going to have another summit. We’re going to have a signing summit, which is even better. So, hopefully we can get that completed, but we’re getting very, very close.”He did not say when this signing would take place but suggested that it might happen sometime in March should talks continue to progress.In a release from the American Soybean Association, president Davie Stephens, a soybean grower from Clinton, KY, said, “We are glad that talks between these two countries will continue without the tariff hike previously expected at the 90-day deadline later this week, but we need resolution and are discouraged that it’s still hard to see a tangible end in sight.”The release went on to say, “While ASA is pleased that the Administration has announced that negotiations have been positive and will continue past Trump’s imposed 90-day window, soy growers continue to urge the Administration to rescind the tariffs and instead make soybeans a part of reducing our trade deficit with China.”They added that they are pushing for “more than piecemeal purchases and want to see open access to the China market restored through the removal of tariffs.” Home Indiana Agriculture News Trump Says “Signing Summit Very, Very Close” with China as Tariff Deadline…center_img Facebook Twitter Trump Says “Signing Summit Very, Very Close” with China as Tariff Deadline Extended Late last Friday Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue tweeted that China had committed to purchase an additional 10 million metric tons of soybeans in a good faith gesture as trade negotiations continue.

Little progress in various Novaya Gazeta murder investigations

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more July 17, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Little progress in various Novaya Gazeta murder investigations Human rights lawyer Stanislav Markelov and Novaya Gazeta junior reporter Anastasia Baburova were gunned down on a Moscow street on 19 January 2009. Two ultra-nationalist activists, Nikita Tikhonov and Yevgenya Khasis, were convicted of carrying out the murder and were sentenced to life imprisonment and 18 years in prison respectively.In May of this year, investigators announced that two other ultra-nationalist activists have been arrested on suspicion of involvement in the murder. They are Ilya Goryachev and Mikhail Volkov, who were arrested in Serbia and Ukraine respectively. A Belgrade court ordered Goryachev’s extradition a month later but his lawyer has appealed.According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, a total of 30 journalists have been murdered in connection with their work in Russia since 2000. Dozens of other journalists, as well as bloggers and other news and information providers, have been threatened, hounded, prosecuted or spied on. Internet use is closely monitored and new repressive laws restrict online access.Reporters Without Borders recently launched a 2014 Sochi campaign to draw attention to the state of civil liberties in Russia. The Winter Olympics must not be used as a Potemkin façade to conceal the sad reality.© Judith Benyayer / © Mickaël Marchese Organisation News Receive email alerts RussiaEurope – Central Asia “Estemirova’s death had a dramatic impact in the Russian Caucasus,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Most NGOs left the region and the few journalists still daring to talk risk their lives to do so. Dozens had to emigrate. “This region’s population lives in fear of reporting the violence and abuses it has to endure, and those whose job is to report the violence no longer succeed in breaking the silence. The situation in this region is alarming, and journalists and human rights defenders can barely operate there.“The judicial system has handled the cases of murdered journalists with excessive slowness. The only two that have resulted in convictions are those of Baburova and Domnikov. Uncertainty surrounds Shchekochikhin’s death, with the judicial authorities insisting he died as a result of an allergy while his newspaper believes he was poisoned. It now seems impossible to get the case reopened because, after 10 years, the required analyses can not long be carried out.”Deloire added: “The investigation into the murder of Estemirova, a symbol of the struggle against human rights violations, has reached a dead end. The Investigative Committee’s spokesperson claims that they are still working on the case, but there is no sign of any results.”Estemirova impasseAccording to an independent investigation by the NGO Memorial and Novaya Gazeta into Estemirova’s death, the main suspect, Alkhazur Bashayev, had nothing to do with her murder. Estemirova’s former colleagues obtained DNA samples of his brother, who is based in France. They were compared with DNA traces left by the murderers and the results were given to the investigators. It is not yet known what conclusions they have drawn.An Investigative Committee representative said on 15 July that investigations were still under way and that Russia was still awaiting a response from France to a request for judicial cooperation sent in 2010. According to Novaya Gazeta, France rejected this request in 2011. Politkovskaya case relaunch?A Moscow court could give the go-ahead on 23 July for the formation of a new jury to continue the trial of Politkovskaya’s alleged killers. The previous attempt to form a jury, on 29 June, was a failure.The defendants consist of the alleged hitman, Rustam Makhmudov, two of his brothers, his uncle and a former police officer. Three of the five were acquitted in an earlier trial in 2009 but the supreme court quashed their acquittal and ordered a new trial. In December 2012, a retired Moscow police lieutenant-colonel, Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov, was sentenced to 11 years in prison for his role in Politikovskaya’s murder and has been in prison ever since.Perfect scapegoat in Domnikov caseOn 16 July 2013, Novaya Gazeta marked the 13th anniversary of the attack by a well-organized and dangerous criminal gang that killed Igor Domnikov. Sixteen members of this gang have been sentenced to long jail terms including life imprisonment, five of them for Domnikov’s murder.A businessman, Pavel Sopot, was provisionally detained in connection with the case in May of this year. Novaya Gazeta, which says Sopot just served as an intermediary, claims to have identified the person who asked for Domnikov to be murdered, a person in a high position, but the investigators have until now ignored its claims. “Much remains to be done in the judicial investigation,” Novaya Gazeta spokesperson Nadezhda Prusenkova told Reporters Without Borders. “Aside from the criminal context, there is the political context. We hope that the Russian authorities will have the courage and the intelligence to solve this murder and jail the mastermind.”Markelov-Baburova case still stalled Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption May 21, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Russia Newscenter_img Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing News RSF_en News At a gathering on 15 July in Paris, Reporters Without Borders paid tribute to Natalia Estemirova, a journalist and human rights activist who was murdered exactly four years earlier in Russia’s North Caucasus.

Fannie Mae: Americans Optimistic About Housing Market

first_img Consumer Confidence Fannie Mae Home Sales Housing Market 2014-05-07 Scott Morgan Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas. During his 11 years as a newspaper journalist, he wrote more than 4,000 published pieces. He’s been recognized for his work since 2001, and his creative writing continues to win acclaim from readers and fellow writers alike. He is also a creative writing teacher and the author of several books, from short fiction to written works about writing. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News With concerns about employment easing, Americans are increasingly optimistic about the housing market, reports Fannie Mae in its April National Housing Survey. And, according to the mortgage buyer, this climbing optimism may foreshadow an upswing in housing activity through the summer months.The results of the survey, released Wednesday, show that 42 percent Americans believe now is a good time to sell a home. Meanwhile, 69 percent believe it’s a good time to buy one. This is the third straight month that the percentage of respondents saying it’s a good time to sell has increased.Fannie is taking it as a good sign that buying activity will increase in the coming months, as potential buyers may look to shed their homes in order to buy new ones.Half the respondents to Fannie’s survey believe home prices will increase in the next 12 months, while 52 percent said they expect mortgage prices to go up in the same time period. Related, respondents were generally split regarding their ability to get a mortgage. About 45 percent said they would expect no trouble in getting one, while 52 percent expect it would be difficult to do. And barely a third of respondents feel the economy is on the right track, despite their optimism for the housing market lately.The encouraging thing, however, is that fewer people are concerned about losing their jobs, which, according to Fannie, may encourage potential homebuyers to enter the market. Also, nearly 90 percent said their income is either more stable or has improved over the past year. However, income gains were tempered by rising expenses—39 percent of respondents said their household expenses are “significantly higher” than 12 months ago.”Concern about job loss among employed consumers has hit a record survey low,” said Doug Duncan, senior VP and chief economist at Fannie Mae. Duncan also said that consumer attitudes are at the most favorable level Fannie has seen in the survey’s four-year history and that “consumer confidence is moving in a positive direction.”Fannie’s April report largely mirrors the results of an April Gallup Poll, which showed that more than half of Americans surveyed feel confident about the housing market. According to that survey, American attitudes toward buying, selling, and home values are up to their highest levels since 2007.”These more positive views of the housing market may help foster a situation in which home buying activity increases and home values continue to rise over the next year,” the Gallup report stated. Almost exactly what Fannie found.

NAR conducted the 2013-2014 Realtor Technology Survey, which found that realtors continued to invest in technology for their business in 2013 and spent more than they had in previous years.According to NAR’s survey, brokers spent a median of $1,410 on technology for their real estate business, up from $1,122 in 2012. Agents spent less—in 2013 agents spent a median $848, up slightly from $822 in 2012.The survey found that technology that allows work to be done while on the move generated the most interest among realtors. “Smartphones and tablets—iPads, Androids, Surfaces or Kindles—are the tools Realtors are most intent on purchasing; 29 percent of participants said they plan on procuring one of these tools in 2014,” NAR found.”Technology has transformed the way Realtors do business, but in real estate, being high tech can never come at the expense of being highly accessible,” said Mark Lesswing, NAR SVP and CTO. “Advances in Smartphones and social media have made it easier for Realtors to stay in touch with their customers, but maintaining a strong, personal relationship with clients is still at the heart of the business.”NAR’s survey found that 94 percent of realtors use mobile devices to communicate with clients. Realtors spent a median 44 percent of their time corresponding with or doing work for their clients with their mobile devices. Certain mobile devices were used more widely than others—iPhones made up 52 percent of devices respondents use, while 36 percent use Android devices and 3 percent Blackberry devices.”Realtors tend to find the most value in technologies that allow them to conduct business quickly, conveniently and on the go,” Lesswing said. “Embracing new technologies and online resources is a vital part of how Realtors identify, market and sell homes and guarantee that they are meeting their clients’ needs.”Social media also proved to be an important link for realtors to reach their clientele. The survey reported that 91 percent of all realtors use social media, with 70 percent saying they use social media to build relationships and network. Additionally, 64 percent of realtors said they use the platforms for marketing and lead generation.Facebook topped the list as most used social media platform with 77 percent of respondents using the service, while 75 percent said they used LinkedIn.

International Arts Center features work of Mobile artist

first_img Since before mandatory curfews and stay at home orders were in place, Mobil artist Micah Mermilliod has always enjoyed going on long walks throughout his neighborhood. “I would use these walks not just as a form of exercise, but also as a time of reflection,” Mermilliod said “Now, in the time of COVID-19 and quarantines, my daily walks have become a sort of escape to help fill many of the voids which come with living in isolation.”While on his walks, Mermilliod said he has noticed changes in his surrounding community, “both positive and negative.”The changes, he said, are directly related to the impact coronavirus has had on society. In Quarantine Walks, Mermilliod uses art to document these changes.

Carrie Jaxon, IAC curator, said Mermilliod creates work which often incorporate elements of collage. He is most interested in adaptive changes that people make, especially in an environment that is rapidly changing due to catalysts such as technology, socio-economic status and environmental changes, she said. “Micah’s photography series offers a unique, current, and relatable perspective into his personal life through outings during the Covid19 pandemic,” Jaxon said. “He explores the idea of environment and the simple act of walking in his neighborhood, observing the positive and negative impacts that have developed over the past year.”Jaxon said Mermilliod documents discarded gloves and masks, comical marketing schemes in restaurant windows, children’s drawings on fences and beautiful forgotten spaces discovered during his quarantine walks.
