The site is located in a place where it is directly connected to the public street. Because of the conditions, our theme was to create a house to open to the outside yet it could keep a private space.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityThere is a front yard at the dwelling. We were considering the garden to connect the outside and inside but also to separate them for keeping the personal environment. To create the courtyard as a semi private zone, a tent structure was used for a partition to separate the two spaces. The tent is covering the garden as if it was a roof, a wall and also a fence. The structure creates the outside environment as a part of interior of the house. Moreover, the sliding doors at the living room can be totally open to the front garden to engage the comfortable green space to the private rooms.

Villa by the Lake / Alexander Diem

Fence, garden, wooden facade, exterior wall, social rooms, private rooms— the farther one gets into the villa by the lake, the more private and gentle the building appears. Privacy is the central theme of this single-family home in close proximity to a lake. In a time which supposedly knows no privacy any more, the built volume celebrates the transition from public to private spaces. The value assigned to, and the resultant hierarchy of, spaces derives directly from how long you stay in them. The stairs, for example, are treated as a subordinate area and are reduced to mere necessity in regard to ceiling height and floor space. By contrast, living rooms are laid out very generously, with ceiling heights up to 5.6 meters. Rounded floor plans define a counter- position to the usual rationalist architecture, generating a sense of homey security.

With panels closed, the cut-out shapes which symbolize food, harvest, and fruit cast shadows on the inside and almost look like exotic wallpapers. The panels are variable and may be kept open or closed as required. The facade is not only for sun protection, but also enables controlling the degree of privacy desired. While offering possibilities for seclusion and intimacy, the house is by no means isolated from its local environs: the lakeside villa responds to its site-specific context, integrating it with the universal needs of the inhabitants.Save this picture!© Andreas BalonArts as an integral part of architectureArt in architecture, which has long been common practice in the public sector was implemented by Alexander Diem here in a private project. A piece by artist Nick Oberthaler is integrated in the terrace floor. And the elaborate main door by artist Plamen Dejanoff quotes the heavy doors of historical country houses. Both artists are represented by Vienna-based gallerist Emanuel Layr whom Alexander Diem called in as an expert already in the planning phase, thus setting up a role model. Normally, art only comes into play after the completion of a building.Save this picture!© Andreas BalonProject gallerySee allShow lessmatterbetter Launches Competition in Honor of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17Architecture NewsInteractive Infographic: How Much do Architecture Graduates Earn?Architecture News Share Villa by the Lake / Alexander DiemSave this projectSaveVilla by the Lake / Alexander Diem ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Villa by the Lake / Alexander Diem “COPY” 2014 Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeAlexander DiemOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesAustraliaPublished on October 01, 2014Cite: “Villa by the Lake / Alexander Diem” 01 Oct 2014.

On grounds once harboring the residence of several Austrian Federal Presidents near the Hohe Warte meteorological station, five residential buildings recently took shape that seem to have landed like brimstone butterflies in a paradise garden. GERNER GERNER PLUS conjured up this feather-light impression.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Matthias RaigerA Central element of the area of approx. one hectare is not the buildings, however, but the wonderful stock of trees, which acted as the planning nucleus right from the start. In between, the architects arranged five buildings in such a way that each living unit was not confronted with an opposite building but instead had a free outlook onto a green landscape. “Close your eyes and think of a beautiful yellow brimstone butterfly that’s just landed in a park, think of its lightness” – this is the architects’ description of the buildings’ aesthetic. Moreover, close cooperation with the authorities ensured that this impression was kept free of cars – they approach via a narrow tunnel in the subterranean garage system; strict attention was paid during construction not to damage the roots of the trees.Save this picture!Building 2 – PlansSave this picture!Building 5 – PlansIn all, 23 flats were built, between 110 and 260 m² in size and with spacious balconies and terraces. What marks them all is their perfect use and generous feeling of space. Because of the few specified points of focus, the ground plans are very flexible so that the individual residents can design them just as they like; a criterion that intelligent architecture must fulfill, according to Gerda Maria Gerner. Providing for extra luxury and convenience are a concierge service, a lounge area and an event facility for hire.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerHigh-Quality SustainabilityFor decades, the plot of land once harbored the residence of Federal Presidents. To do justice to it, much value was placed on the highest quality in building the houses, both in materials and in workmanship. Accordingly, the intermediate walls of the concrete framed construction was not made of plasterboard, for instance, but of brick, like the outer walls. Façade parts between the ground-reaching windows and wooden terrace doors were rendered manually in traditional handicraft, endowing the surface a superlative structure.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerThe façade in a bright clay-grey tone retreats modestly into the background behind the surrounding balconies and terraces, accentuating the horizontal articulation of the façades. Wooden floors lead seamlessly from inside to outside – thanks to the high-quality surface treatment they defy the rigors of the weather. Heat insulation was also subject to exacting standards; this sets a special challenge because of the curvature of the buildings. But for the GERNER GERNER PLUS architects, the theme of sustainability doesn’t end by any means at the choice of material or the U-value.Save this picture!Building 5 – SectionsFifty deep geothermal probes were drilled into the earth, carefully avoiding the stock of trees and distributed across the whole plot of land; this means that the five residential buildings on the Hohe Warte manage without fossil raw materials and are heated and cooled exclusively with geothermal energy. Also, the e-car charging stations at each of the extra-wide parking places in the basement car park is a clear sign of commitment to sustainability.Save this picture!© Matthias RaigerProject gallerySee allShow lessBloomberg’s New European Headquarters Rated World’s Most Sustainable Office BuildingArchitecture NewsCultural Centre for Czech and Slovak Immigrants / Inglis Badrashi LoddoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Hohe Warte, 1190 Vienna, AustriaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Long live a free Puerto Rico!

first_imgBerta Joubert-CeciWW photo: Bert Joubert-CeciExcerpted from a talk by Berta Joubert-Ceci to the Workers World Party national conference in New York City, Nov. 15-16.We are seeing the effects and the consequences of this stage of capitalism — what we have called “capitalism at a dead end.” The intensification of the attacks at all levels on working people, on the oppressed and on the masses in general. The U.S. wars against the peoples abroad.The racist police murders of our Black and Brown youth, carried out with impunity. Attacks on migrant children and workers, layoffs and, in general, a war on the poor. And the pauperization of the population.But how does this manifest in the only “formal” colony of the United States in the Latin America-Caribbean region? In Puerto Rico, my homeland. Why is it important for us to study this?While many Latin American countries are gaining independence from Washington’s domination, Puerto Rico is slipping backwards. It’s losing  population to Florida and Texas, while many people from the U.S. buy low-priced property on the island. It’s like a substitution of the population, similar to Hawaii’s history. Some 3,000 people a month migrate to the USA from Puerto Rico. Many are youths, often graduates of higher education — the future of the island! More Puerto Ricans live in the U.S. now than on the island.Puerto Rico’s experience concentrates all the effects of capitalism at a dead end.There is an economic but also a social crisis.The amount of the country’s external debt gives an idea of the economic crisis: It’s close to $76 billion and unpayable! As a colony, we have no sovereignty — we cannot even file for bankruptcy. The U.S.-imposed constitution establishes that the bondholders must be paid first — before the needs of the population. The government of the island is just a servant of U.S. corporate interests and does not challenge that inhumane law.With few exceptions, the whole island has been privatized. Telephone, health care, roads, the international airport, our precious pineapple plantations.The cost of utilities has risen. Sales taxes have been imposed in a futile effort to pay the debt. Salaries are much lower than in the United States while most products are more expensive. Why? Because U.S.-imposed  shipping laws forbid shipping with non-U.S. vessels. More than 80 percent of the food is imported.The people of Puerto Rico are being squeezed, resulting in an increase of violence at all levels.Solidarity needed nowComrades, it is a profound crisis. And that is why we should discuss it so we can give the solidarity that is needed now.The Boricuas have always been a fighting people. Starting with our Taíno warriors — Urayoán, Guarionex, Agueybaná — who revolted against the Spanish colonizers.U.S. colonization suppressed our real history and our heroes. These included Ramón Emeterio Betances, an internationalist, the father of the homeland and the independence movement. He organized the uprising against Spain and against slavery both in Puerto Rico and Haiti, and he participated in the French revolts. He advocated unity of the Antilles, much like Simón Bolívar did in Latin America. However, most Puerto Ricos don’t know him.The colonization process was meant to belittle the people, to make them feel dependent on Washington. Yet, an independence movement has always existed. With figures like Albizu Campos, Lolita Lebrón, Rafael Cancel Miranda and so many others.The colonizers always penalized those fighting for independence. Local police, FBI and all U.S. repressive forces target independence activists. We will never forget how in 2005 an FBI team was sent to the island to kill Filiberto Ojeda Ríos, the leader of Los Macheteros, an independence group. On a special day for the independence movement, Sept. 23 — known as Grito de Lares — the FBI shot him and let him bleed to death. And we will never forget how all Puerto Rican political prisoners have been charged with the same “seditious conspiracy” to overthrow the U.S. government.Recent movements like “the peoples’ strike” to prevent the privatization of the telephone company, the “U.S. Navy out of Vieques” and the University of Puerto Rico student strike demonstrate the people’s will to come together and fight back. Something similar is happening now with the  demand for freedom for Oscar López, who has been 33 years in a Yankee cell.Along with the independence movement itself, now with the capitalist crisis two of the most militant and active movements on the island are the one headed by the UTIER — the electricity workers who are defending the electric company from privatization — and the teachers fighting against public school closings, both part of the anticolonial struggle. The Boston Consulting Group is demanding the schools close.It is important that we here show full solidarity with these struggles, as we did during the successful struggle to get the U.S. Navy out of Vieques.The people of Puerto Rico will continue fighting, but remember: The majority of Puerto Ricans are part of the working class inside this country. We have to join them in solidarity both here and in Puerto Rico. And demand the freedom of political prisoner Oscar López Rivera and Norberto González Claudio.I summon the forces of Urayoán, Guarionex, Betances, Filiberto and Lolita to help me say ¡Viva Puerto Rico Libre!¡Free Oscar and Norberto!Long live international solidarity! Workers of the world, unite!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Many of the financial problems that we continue to face are due to the large number of indigent patients that we treat. About 38 percent of our patients are self-pay which means no pay and we are not reimbursed. But looking at it another way, it’s humanitarian because, if not us, who would?” The lifeblood of any hospital is its personnel and during the year, the medical community lost several outstanding physicians, McRae said.“Unfortunately, we lost some very good doctors to other places and Dr. John Crosby, who had been with us ‘forever,’ went into fulltime retirement,” McRae said. “But then, some good things happened personnel wise. We made some outstanding additions to the medical community in Dr. Lester Littell, orthopaedic surgeon, and Dr. Craig Cole, general surgeon, and the vacancy at the Brundidge clinic has been filled by Dr. Charles Linguiti, internal medicine.”Hospital interim administrator Teresa Grimes was named chief executive officer in the spring and McRae said she is doing a great job.

Wisconsin brothers accused of running illegal THC vape cartridge ’empire’

first_imgdanchooalex/iStock(PADDOCK LAKE, Wis.) — Authorities in Wisconsin are investigating whether a large-scale operation by two brothers allegedly making illegal THC-infused vape cartridges could be connected to recent vaping-related illnesses and deaths across the country. Tyler Huffhines, 20, and Jacob Huffhines, 23, were arrested on Sept. 5 after authorities conducted various search warrants on their family’s home in Paddock Lake and a rented condominium in Bristol, both villages of Kenosha County. Investigators believe the younger brother was the “ringleader” of what they say was the “sophisticated” drug operation and the condo was its headquarters, according to Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth. At the Paddock Lake residence, where the brothers live, $59,000 in cash, guns, drugs and drug paraphernalia was found, according to authorities. But that was just the “tip of the iceberg” in their alleged “empire of illegal drugs,” Beth said. It was the raid at the condo, which was rented under a fake name, that netted 31,200 vape cartridges in the condo, each filled with 1 gram of liquid THC — the main psychoactive component of cannabis — and ready to be distributed, according to Beth. There were also 98,000 empty vape cartridges and 57 mason jars filled with liquid THC, with the contents of each jar valued at approximately $6,000, as well as three money-counting machines and 18 pounds of marijuana, Beth added. “This is a major, major operation,” the sheriff said at a joint press conference with other law enforcement agencies on Wednesday.Investigators believe Tyler Huffhines, who allegedly started the operation in January 2018, hired several employees to fill the vape cartridges with liquid THC and package them in brightly-colored wrappers, mimicking candy with names like “Sour Patch.” The back of the packaging states the product contains a very small amount of THC, about 5 mg, when in reality it’s 1,000 mg, Beth said. “It looks like candy,” he told reporters. “It’s not candy. It’s highly potent drugs.”The investigation into the alleged operation started this summer after the parents of a high school boy in Waukesha found THC vape cartridges on their their son and brought him to the police station, providing information that was ultimately traced back to the Huffhines brothers, officials said. “These parents were courageous for what they did,” Waukesha County Police Captain Dan Baumann said at Wednesday’s press conference. “They should be commended.”Tyler Huffhines was being held in the Kenosha County Jail on a $500,000 cash bond, according to Milwaukee ABC station WISN-TV. He faces several drug-related felony charges. He was scheduled to appear in court Friday. Jacob Huffhines was being held in the Kenosha County Jail without bond on charges of cocaine possession, possession of a firearm by a felon and violating probation. Formal charges have not yet been filed, according to WISN. It was unclear whether the brothers have obtained attorneys.Investigators are “actively searching” for others involved in the alleged drug ring, and there may be more arrests, according to Beth. Authorities in Kenosha County are also “willing to work with any agency in this country” to determine whether the Huffhines brothers and other members of the community “have any responsibility in hurting the hundreds of people throughout the United States, especially Wisconsin,” the sheriff said.Earlier this week, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment confirmed the first death in the state from a vaping-related lung disease, bringing the nationwide total to six. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had previously confirmed five deaths from a vaping-related lung disease across five states: California, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Oregon. The agency also said it is aware of over 450 possible cases of vaping-related illnesses in 33 states and one U.S. territory. There is no specific vaping device or chemical that have been linked to all the cases, but the CDC reports that a majority of the patients are male, between the ages of 18 and 35, and admit to using nicotine, THC (the main active component in cannabis), or both, about 90 days before experiencing symptoms, which include shortness of breath, gastrointestinal issues, fever and fatigue.Meanwhile, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating at least 127 reports of people suffering seizures or other neurological symptoms after using e-cigarettes. All of the reported cases occurred between 2010 and 2019, and many involved youth and young adults. It remains unclear whether there’s a direct link between vaping and the reported cases of neurological events, according to the federal agency. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
