The project was fundamentally conceived by a husband and wife team, both architects, who set out to design a 3-generation dwelling for themselves, a modern tropical house which transcends beyond the confines of a tight intermediate terrace plot. One of the main challenges faced by the couple, who were avid swimmers, was how to accommodate a lap pool of decent size within the confines of an intermediate terrace house while not sacrificing the functional needs of the living spaces. The design solution that arises adopts the unconventional approach of lifting the living spaces of the house from the 2nd storey while freeing up the ground floor for a 21m lap pool and spa facilities.Save this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangSave this picture!Floor Plans 1Save this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangThe vast stretch of the pool and the linear composition of elements on the ground floor refutes the perception of the site as diminutive and narrow and greatly enhances the perception of the spaces which extends beyond its physical boundaries. The enduring concept of the courtyard house was also introduced where a 4-story air well rises above the lap pool at the heart of the house. All living spaces are planned around the central courtyard, with dual frontages – internal courtyard view and the exterior, maximizing both natural lighting and cross ventilation.Save this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangAs such, the stacked effect created from the open courtyard and the provision of an extensive slide and fold window walls on all elevations allowing for maximum cross ventilation, give rise to living spaces which are constantly breezy. Functionally, the courtyard also serves as the volume which spatially connects the various familial spaces, allowing constant visual connectivity and communication between the occupants. The house and its occupants embrace a lifestyle that transits seamlessly between inside and outside, between intimate conditions and expansive prospects, all while in conversation with nature.Save this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangThe main elevations of house are defined by a sleek rectilinear volume which extends the length of the plot while framing the various architectural elements – a series of vertical operable screens and a cantilevered volume which extends out as an open terrace. Use of full-height operable aluminum pivot screens along the front and back facade allows filtered natural light into the interiors while regulating the degree of privacy needed due to the close proximity to neighbors. Lush provision of vernonia elliptica along the perimeter of the courtyard on every floor gives the appearance of a verdant green curtain along common corridors leading to the bedrooms.Save this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangBathrooms are designed as open-concept or open to the sky with flourishing shrubbery as a privacy veil, blurring the lines between the interior and exterior and the spaces appear to extend beyond the confines of the actual interior. The architects employed a controlled palette of materials for the house, with the conscious intention of revealing the true elements of construction as it is. Structural elements were explicitly left as bare screed finishes contrast against textured masonry walls throughout the house. In essence, the architects demonstrated deliberateness in the crafting of the house, creating a home which is optimized not augmented. What the house lacks in square footage it provides in volume and views – an inversion of expectation.Save this picture!© Kwan Yeong KangProject gallerySee allShow lessKSR House / Yapi Studyo ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHouse T / META-ProjectSelected Projects Share Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description “COPY” Houses Year:  Area:  379 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/920403/house-at-joo-hong-road-lim-chai-boon Clipboard Photographs CopyAbout this officeLim Chai BoonOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on July 06, 2019Cite: “House at Joo Hong Road / Lim Chai Boon” 05 Jul 2019.

Darwinians May Be Their Own Worst Enemy, Says Darwinist

first_imgEvolutionists have only themselves to blame for the rise of anti-Darwinian sentiment, says Michael Ruse in a new book, The Evolution-Creation Struggle (Harvard, 2005).  Peter Dizikes reviewed this premise in The Boston Globe.  By portraying evolution in overtly atheist terms with religious fervor, certain individuals like Richard Dawkins are creating a backlash, says Ruse.  “This is not just a fight about dinosaurs or gaps in the fossil record,” he said.  “This is a fight about different worldviews.”  In his book, Ruse traces the anti-religious polemics of various Darwinists since 1859, who claimed evolution has replaced religion and now answers all the great questions.    Ruse said he expects a backlash from his fellow evolutionists over this book.  Some will feel he is giving creationists a platform for claiming evolution is a religion.  Eugenie Scott, whose full-time job is keeping creationism and intelligent design out of the public schools, feels things have to be worded very carefully these days.  She said, “I’m a hell of a lot more careful than Michael.  I personally prefer not to provide ammunition for the opposition.”  When creationists latch onto his statements, he responds, “What am I supposed to do?  I’m an academic.  I believe in freedom.  I believe the most important thing you can do is criticize your own ideas.”If he believes in freedom, he is not a true Darwinist.  Freedom does not derive from material substances; on the contrary, it is an endowment from our Creator: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.    Thank God for a more fair-minded evolutionist like Michael Ruse who is willing to look at the problems on his own side.  Pray for Ruse, and for Scott, too.  They appear desperately trying to defend an indefensible position, an antiquated Victorian dogma that is no longer up to explaining the complexities of biology.  They must realize this in their heart of hearts.  When intelligent design finally dismantles the Darwinian regime, it will be a day to proclaim liberty throughout the land, unto all the inhabitants thereof.(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Federal government passes Canadas first national accessibility legislation

first_imgOTTAWA – Disabled Canadians declared a partial victory Thursday hours after the government voted to enact Canada’s first national accessibility law, calling it a major step forward while cautioning that more work was still needed to ensure it achieves its goal.The Accessible Canada Act, which aims to improve life for those with disabilities, received unanimous support in the House of Commons on Wednesday evening. It awaits only royal assent, expected in the coming weeks, before officially becoming law.Advocates who fought for amendments to strengthen the legislation praised the governing Liberals for delivering on a promise to implement the bill and bring Canada more in line with other countries that have had such laws for years. But they also cautioned against complacency, saying more work lay ahead.“We applaud the government for its willingness to listen to Canadians with disabilities,” Council of Canadians with Disabilities chair Jewelles Smith said in a statement.“CCD reminds the government that there are many serious ongoing barriers that will not be addressed by this act, and encourages the federal government to pursue policy solutions to these well-known concerns.”Accessibility Minister Carla Qualtrough, who spearheadded national consultations on the bill and shepherded it through Parliament, hailed its passage as a significant moment.“This is the most transformative piece of legislation since enacting the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and a true testament to the work, commitment and contributions of the Canadian disability community,” she said in a statement. “This historic act sends a clear signal to Canadians that persons with disabilities will no longer be treated as an afterthought.”The act passed by Parliament bears striking differences from the version initially tabled last June.Its stated purpose — to “identify, remove and prevent” accessibility barriers in areas that fall under federal jurisdiction — was greeted with enthusiasm and remains the same. Those areas include built environments, federally run programs and services, banking, telecommunications and transportation that crosses provincial lines.But disabled advocates almost immediately began raising concerns about the effectiveness of the legislation and lobbied for changes.Last fall, a group of 95 disability groups signed an open letter outlining nine areas of perceived weakness, including the lack of a timeline for the bill’s implementation and failure to recognize various forms of sign language as official languages of the deaf.The Senate’s committee on social affairs, science and technology, citing community concerns, amended the bill to include sign language recognition as well as a timeline for the bill to be fully implemented by 2040.Those amendments were reflected in the bill that garnered parliamentary approval.Activists celebrated the passage of the act as genuine progress, but some continued to voice concerns about areas where they feel it still falls short.The Arch Disability Law Centre indicated Thursday that it was particularly troubled by the language employed throughout the bill, which repeatedly uses “may” rather than “shall” or “must” when describing initiatives.This language gives government … power to make and enforce the new accessibility requirements, but does not actually require them to use these powers,” Arch said in a statement.An amendment before the Senate committee addressed that concern but was defeated.Advocates also criticized the bill for granting the government broad powers to exempt people from the new rules, spreading enforcement over numerous agencies, and opting not to withhold federal funding from organizations that don’t comply with accessibility measures. Conservatives and New Democrats echoed those issues in Parliament.Gabrielle Peters, a Vancouver-based wheelchair user, said the government’s failure to address those areas leaves the law lacking compared to similar legislation in other countries. She said she questions whether the law will prove significant for all its meant to serve.“I and many like me will be at home with my broken wheelchair in my tiny box of an improperly adapted apartment living in poverty in a city with 8,000 corners where I can’t cross the street,” she said.“Nothing in the act will change that. But I am glad Canada finally has an Accessible Canada Act, however lacking I find it, and I want to recognize the work of those who actually worked on and for it.”last_img read more

Cian Dabrowski looking for seniors to leave legacy for Ohio State womens

Credit: Courtesy of Ben SolomanSenior attackman Cian Dabrowski said she believes the leadership and influence of the senior class will lead the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team to reach new heights this season on the heels of a 13-8 campaign.Dabrowski enters her senior season coming off a 2015 season for the books. She is the team’s active leader with 69 goals and 25 assists and she scored a team-high four goals when OSU knocked off No. 1 Maryland in the semifinals of the 2015 Big Ten tournament. This broke the Terrapins’ 27-game winning streak and gave the Buckeyes their first win over a top-ranked team in program history.“That was my favorite moment of my career as a Buckeye,” Dabrowski said. “No one really expected us to beat them, so it made that victory so much sweeter, and we all take a lot of pride in that game.”Going into the 2016 season, Dabrowski said she wants to continue the success the team has had in the past as different people step up and fill new roles.“Our team’s goals this year revolve around trying to build off of a great season last year and continuing to grow,” Dabrowski said. “We proved to be a big threat in our conference, as well as in the country, so continuing with that elite mentality is something we work on everyday.”Dabrowski said her personal role on the squad has evolved drastically since her freshman year.“We had some phenomenal players my first few years, so it was my job to learn from them and find a way to complement them,” Dabrowski said. “Now it’s my opportunity to put everything I’ve learned to work, and I’m looking forward to having more trust and assurance from my teammates when I have the ball.”OSU then-freshman attacker Cian Dabrowski (14) celebrates with teammates after a goal during a game against Maryland on May 1. Credit: Courtesy of Ben SolomanCoach Alexis Venechanos, in her sixth year at the helm for the Buckeyes, said Dabrowski and the rest of the senior class have always had great leaders above them, and she expects them to carry that quality on to their younger teammates.“I think Cian is really taking on the leadership role well,” Venechanos said. “She’s taking some of these newcomers under her wing in the attacking end, and she’s working well with our returners and some players who need a little more game experience.”Dabrowski said having nine teammates in her class brings a sense of variable leadership, which is reflected throughout the entire team.“Looking at nine of us for leadership is a blessing for our team, because it allows for so much diversity, and that unifies us with the younger girls,” Dabrowski said. “Our senior class is the most determined, hardworking and passionate group of girls that I am fortunate enough to call my teammates.”Venechanos said she is excited to see how Dabrowski will influence her team this season.“In the big stage, Cian is clutch,” Venechanos said. “She will be a person we will look up to both on and off the field this year.”Growing up in a lacrosse and hockey family, Dabrowski said she has a different perception of the game, which is something that she said she can use to her advantage as a leader.“I hope to continue to use this to my advantage in the upcoming season by inspiring my teammates to approach things differently,” Dabrowski said. “This is something that the Buckeye lacrosse atmosphere motivates me to do, while continuing with our own traditions, it can be truly humbling.”Venechanos said Dabrowski is a phenomenal player and an even better person, making her the ideal leader for the team. The hype around the Canadian product led to her being one of three OSU players named to the Big Ten’s players to watch list on Monday.“She has this great sense of self-confidence and never gets flustered when she makes a mistake,” Venechanos said. “She has this poise around her, and I’m really impressed with her competitiveness and determination.” Dabrowski and the Buckeyes are set to kick off their 2016 season on Feb. 13 against Detroit at 3:30 p.m. at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. read more

Urban Meyer Buckeyes moving forward after win against Michigan State Dontre Wilson

Fresh off a win that moved Ohio State into solo first in the Big Ten East Division, coach Urban Meyer met with the media to discuss the win against Michigan State and an upcoming matchup with Minnesota.Meyer praised the offensive performance against Michigan state, but added the Buckeyes have room to improve defensively as they prepare for a Minnesota team that gives “relentless effort.” He also addressed the play of a few particular Buckeyes and said one OSU sophomore made a big play on a broken foot during Saturday’s 49-37 win in East Lansing, Mich.He said sophomore H-back Dontre Wilson has a broken foot. “He actually caught a touchdown pass with a broken foot.”Wilson is “out for a few weeks,” Meyer said. Added he might have to have a pin put in his foot.He said the Buckeyes are “fortunate” and “blessed” to have both Barrett and injured senior quarterback Braxton Miller set to return to OSU next season.Meyer said the Buckeyes “played their best game” against Michigan State, but added there’s still a lot of room for improvement.Meyer said the players to grade as champions on defense were sophomore safety Vonn Bell, senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett and senior cornerback Doran Grant. Grant was the defensive player of the game.He said the players who graded out as champions on offense were senior wide receiver Evan Spencer, sophomore H-back Jalin Marshall, redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas, senior tight end Jeff Heuerman, redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman Pat Elflein and redshirt-freshman offensive lineman Billy Price.Meyer on Spencer: “He’s my MVP, as far as just all around what we ask him to do.”He said the offensive players of the game were junior offensive lineman Jacoby Boren, redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett, senior wide receiver Devin Smith and sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott.Meyer said Devin Smith played his best game against Michigan State.Meyer said Spencer and redshirt-junior wide receiver Corey Smith were the top special teams players.

The players will receive their directive tomorrow, and now we’re moving forward.”Meyer on performance against Michigan State: “We didn’t play as well as we could on defense, and we expect to play much better.”He said Barrett has to be in the Heisman Trophy conversation statistically, but conceded he hadn’t watched many other players nationally.Meyer on the offensive performance against the Spartans: “It’s our best performance we’ve had since we’ve been here.”He said he’s “upset” that the Buckeyes haven’t found a strong rotation on the defensive line.Meyer said he’s very comfortable with redshirt-freshman H-back Jalin Marshall running the wildcat. Added the Buckeyes have “a couple passes ready for” Marshall.He said Barrett’s biggest improvement has come from his “understanding of the game.”Meyer: “Early in the season, we were not a great team.”“This is the most improved team I’ve been apart of,” he said.Meyer praised the play of OSU’s wide receivers, said he’s comfortable with that group for the first time in a long time.The Buckeyes are scheduled to play Minnesota on Saturday in Minneapolis. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

2018 resolutionsPollution fitness top priority

first_imgTechnical Consultant at MNC (Vidit Das)2017 was a hectic year for me since I shifted from Delhi to Pune for a new job. But this year, I would like to see myself in a good financial condition. I am also planning to make good and healthy lifestyle changes.Apart from that, I hope that the air quality of Delhi improves this year. I came back to the Capital to see my family after a hiatus of four months and the air was suffocating. Hence, in 2018, I would like to see taxpayers money being used for giving back clean environment, food, good living facilities, and clean rivers. These should be the primary goals of the government instead of using the money for their campaigns and funds. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf Graduate from GGSIPU, Delhi (Kalpana Lohumi)As far as my personal resolutions are concerned, this year, I want to learn guitar, get into poetry, and get physically fit. I have already wasted a lot of time on useless stuff and now I want to focus on my career.But I would very much like a safer environment for women in the Capital. I have been living in a PG in Delhi for three years now, and after reading and listening to all the crimes against women, I feel that it’s high time for the government to make strict laws against teasing and rape cases. The government needs to work on a smaller level first; farmers are the backbone of our country and they need utmost support by the government. Once the farmer’s issues are sorted out, other sectors will also improve drastically. And since, I have just graduated, I hope we, the youth, get good job opportunities in the upcoming years. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive IAS aspirant (Swati Dubey)India has undergone many changes since the Modi government came into existence but still, there are some things that in my opinion shouldn’t have happened and only we are to be blamed for them.Pollution has been on our minds and in our lungs, this year and simply criticising the government is not going to solve this problem. I feel, that we are also responsible for this rampant problem in the Capital and we need to do something about it first, not the government. So, if we want a safer environment, we should come forward and work for it before our city just becomes a masquerade of people with masks. Apart from that, I hope our country becomes less regressive in 2018 and the coming years and we don’t get to see another Padmavati nuisance. On a personal front, this year, I would be focusing more on my health. I plan on joining yoga classes this year and I hope this year turns the tables for me and I get through the government service exams I have been trying for. IT professional (Vijaya Gowrisankar)There were a lot of job cuts in our profession in 2018. In some cases, it is the issue of automation replacing human endeavour, which leads to retrenchment. I feel that we should not shy away from this situation and learn new skills instead, where we may find other employment options.Also, there is a lot of negativity in our generation which we must transcend in 2018. Impatience, pulling someone down, harassing others on social media has become all too common. We don’t realize that this is quicksand and we can only sink into the quagmire.Personally, I would like to be a better person through constant introspection and constant learning. This will enhance me personally and professionally. Senior Citizen (Bandana Guha)I hope that crime against women and children abate in 2018. There were many gruesome incidents in 2017 and I hope they don’t repeat themselves next year. I am a member of a women’s organization and I plan to mobilise them to work in this field. Also, strict punishment must be initiated against those who are guilty of such heinous crimes. Personally, I suffered from a bout of illness in 2017 for which I was hospitalised for quite some time. Presently, I’m taking treatment for my ailment and I am definitely looking forward to a fitter 2018.So, I’m fervently hoping for a fitter 2018. Associate Professor/Serampore Girl’s College, Hooghly (Sayanti Talukdar)People say resolutions are meant to be broken and yet that’s what keeps us motivated throughout the year. Personally speaking, I am not the kind to make resolutions mostly for the reason that I may not be able to live up to them. On a personal note, the only promise I make to myself as the year is coming to an end is that there be light and only light in my mind and soul to see only the positivity around me and may I be a little more patient with myself as well as others who matter to me.To speak on a larger scale, socially, I wish to see my state in a better shape, with ample job opportunities, true education imparted to children, a safe and secured India where women can move around feeling protected. In short, there must be eradication of darkness in the true sense, the year 2018 ushering in love, joy, peace and prosperity. Corporate Manager, MNC (Jayanta Saha)My resolution for 2018 is to achieve better fitness and reduce weight which did not happen in 2017. And since it is very difficult for me to say no to things, I want to be able to say the word personally and professionally.Socially, I’d like to see my state (Kolkata) remain free from communal tension and also that teacher-student relationship be normal. A child should not be afraid of going to school.last_img read more
