While working on this project the main question that was raised was how to integrate a contemporary facility into the existing ambient of a small Istrian town, how to incorporate something modern into the existing area, which in itself entails a string of details and functions that considerably vary from the rural image of surrounding households, all the while striving to keep the balance with the community in general.

During the designing process local structures and materials were researched in detail, particularly the way in which the materials (primarily stone) were used, shaped and experienced. The path led from traditional Istrian Casitas to family estates. The Casita as the most primitive structural form, but with a clear and well-defined outline (wall, opening, roof) and fascinating stacked-stone structure alongside the family estate as a group of separate facilities which function as a whole. Save this picture!© Miljenko BernfestIt was attempted to unite these concepts so as to create not only new structures in space, but for the purpose of those new facilities complementing the situation and environment without disturbing tradition or unnecessarily imposing themselves. Save this picture!© Miljenko BernfestThe abovementioned contemplations resulted in a house that follows the clear and simple contours of the neighboring facilities (rectangular ground-plan, angled roof), which with its three-way restrictedness quite clearly defines the completely open fourth side. Furthermore, with its stone-lined facade and roof it directly communicates with the location it is situated in a subtle, but expressively individual manner. Save this picture!© Aleksandar MarkovicThe dialogue between the old and the new is established by the entirety of the two houses and the supporting storeroom as a perfect counterpart to the neighboring family estates that encompass several facilities within their property, and by shaping, structure and texture at the same time clearly separate the private from the public, allowing the creation of an intimate contemporary ambient.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Shohei Shigematsu (OMA NY) at U LavalArticlesSolar Park South / Jaramillo-Azuero ArquitectosArticles Share CopyHouses•Porec, Croatia Projects Two Houses / ArhitektriSave this projectSaveTwo Houses / Arhitektri Architects: Arhitektri Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Miljenko Bernfest+ 22 Share “COPY”last_img read more

Global virtual fundraising relay for UNICEF reaches seventh continent

first_imgGlobal virtual fundraising relay for UNICEF reaches seventh continent Advertisement Tagged with: fundraising events A global virtual relay set up to raise funds for UNICEF UK has seen over 1,000 runners from 31 countries across seven continents take part so far, raising £6,000 to date.Pass the Baton was set up in April by a group of friends in Nottingham to raise money for the charity. It now has 1,200 runners from across the globe participating and has just had runners join from its seventh continent – Antarctica.The first week saw participants run an equal section of a 26.2 miles marathon route and passed the baton after each leg over a dedicated WhatsApp group. One week later the concept matured – 48 runners from across the globe, all completing 5.2km in 30 min slots, over a 24-hour period.Pass the Baton is now 12 weeks old and occurs every Sunday, with three groups of 48 runners completing 250km over 24 hours. During the week an online group of hundreds of runners between the ages of 6 and 55, from 31 countries, choose a 30-minute slot to run, then the relay starts on Saturday evening.One of the founding members of Pass the Baton and finance director at Nottingham-based 200 Degrees Coffee, Stephen Fern, said:“We have created a community of runners of all ages and abilities that encourage each other to do their best whilst sharing pictures, stories and encouragement online. The engagement never ceases to amaze us and every Sunday we watch how Pass the Baton provides a space for people to connect –cultivating happiness, joy and a sense of community and belonging.“When we reached our 1,000th runner and had participants join us from the only continent where we didn’t have any coverage – Antarctica – we were all so excited. As a business we supply coffee to the British Antarctica Survey (BAS) and through that connection, we managed to have runners in all seven continents. It really is a global community that has grown in only a matter of weeks.”  336 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  335 total views,  5 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Melanie May | 26 August 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Extra €1.1 million for student supports

first_imgLimerick Post Show | FOLM Project Advertisement LIMERICK Institute of Technology has allocated funding of €1.1 million to support students who find themselves in financial difficulty.With the cost of third level education on the rise, and the threat of cuts to student grants, college president Dr Maria Hinfelaar said LIT was “very aware of the financial sacrifice associated with going to college”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up She continued: “Financial hardship is often cited as one of the primary reasons for dropping out of college. To counteract this, last year LIT doubled its range of financial supports available to students who find themselves unable to meet their financial demands, allocating funding of €1.1 million to support students who without this financial support would have struggled to remain in college.”LIT students can also access a free health unit and a counselling service staffed by trained counsellors and psychologists.The college says that it also works closely with accommodation providers in the city to source the best accommodation rates for its students.A recent survey by the accommodation office at LIT showed that Limerick offered the best value for money across all types of student accommodation in comparison to Cork, Galway and Dublin at only €65 a week.via Extra €1.1 million for student supports (196) | Limerick Post Newswrite.

Baltimore nearing record number of homicides in a year since 1993

first_imgiStock(BALTIMORE) — With only a few days left in the year, Baltimore is 15 homicides away from having the highest rate of slayings the city has ever witnessed in a single year.Two women were shot and killed Sunday night bringing the murder rate to 338 people dead in Baltimore this year. Their deaths came later the same day seven people, including three teenagers, were shot outside a downtown business, the Baltimore Sun reported. Two others were shot and killed in the city on Saturday.The city’s highest number of homicides was in 1993, when 353 people were killed and the city had more than 100,000 additional residents than it does now.Baltimore’s homicide rate is 10 times larger than the United States’ rate, according to the Mises Institute, a nonprofit center of research, teaching and outreach in Alabama.The Baltimore Sun’s homicides data page indicates that the last time the city had less than 300 homicide victims in one year was in 2014. The numbers have since staggered every year.One year after that milestone, the city saw unrest and rioting in April 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray, who suffered injuries while in police custody. Along with the increase in violence this year, the city is still dealing with a federal consent decree that mandates sweeping police reforms after the 2015 unrest and resulting civil rights investigation by the U.S. Justice Department.

Press release: Report 14/2018: Passenger trapped and dragged at Notting Hill Gate station

first_img This file may not be suitable for users of assistive technology. PDF, 5.36MB, 41 pages Newsdate: 3 September 2018 Request an accessible format. If you use assistive technology (such as a screen reader) and need aversion of this document in a more accessible format, please email [email protected] tell us what format you need. It will help us if you say what assistive technology you use. SummaryAt about 16:00 hrs on Wednesday 31 January 2018, a passenger became trapped in the doors of a London Underground train as she attempted to board a westbound Central line service at Notting Hill Gate station while the doors were closing. The train departed and reached a maximum speed of 35 km/h before the emergency brakes were applied and the train stopped. The passenger was dragged for approximately 75 metres along the platform, and about 15 metres further into the tunnel. She suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital, where she was treated for about a month. She has since been steadily recovering.The accident occurred because the passenger’s bag became trapped in the doors as she attempted to board the train, the train’s door control system did not detect the presence of the bag trapped in the doors, and the train operator was not aware of the trapped passenger before initiating the train’s departure. It is likely that the train operator did not perceive the passenger because of a number of interacting factors associated with the nature of his task which caused him to not consciously process the available information. The view on the in-cab CCTV monitor did not adequately assist him to detect that a passenger was trapped in the doors and he relied on other cues to depart rather than making a thorough check of the in-cab CCTV monitor.The investigation identified a probable underlying factor associated with training programmes for train operators, concerning scanning techniques for in-cab CCTV monitors and awareness of the limitations of door-traction interlocks.RecommendationsThe RAIB has made five recommendations and one learning point, all addressed to London Underground. The recommendations concern the detection of objects by the train’s door systems, how the design of the task, equipment and training can influence train operators’ attention and awareness, and the use of emergency stop facilities on platforms. While there is no evidence that the train operator was impaired by drugs or alcohol, the learning point concerns the importance of following procedures for drug and alcohol testing where relevant.Notes to editors The sole purpose of RAIB investigations is to prevent future accidents and incidents and improve railway safety. RAIB does not establish blame, liability or carry out prosecutions. RAIB operates, as far as possible, in an open and transparent manner. While our investigations are completely independent of the railway industry, we do maintain close liaison with railway companies and if we discover matters that may affect the safety of the railway, we make sure that information about them is circulated to the right people as soon as possible, and certainly long before publication of our final report.

Bakery firms scoop FDF awards

first_imgA number of bakery manufacturers have scooped prizes at the Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF) Community Partnership Awards this year.Announced last week at a celebration lunch at the Shakespeare Globe theatre in London, winners included the Burton Biscuit Company and United Biscuits, which took gold and silver respectively in the Export Success category.United Biscuits, known for manufacturing products under the McVitie’s brand name, also received the top award in the Health and Wellbeing category for its efforts to reduce the percentage of saturated fat in its products.Lanark-based Border Biscuits took home the gold in the Local Community category after judges recognised the efforts of the firm and its employees to strengthen their relationships with the local community through a web-based project.General Mills, which owns the Jus-Rol pastry brand, was awarded bronze in the same category for its Floating Classroom facility, designed to offer local schoolchildren a way to learn more about nature and science.Terry Jones, director of communications at the FDF, said: “Our Community Partnership Awards are an important opportunity to recognise the positive impact food and drink businesses have across the country and to celebrate their economic success.“Whether it’s working with local schools, sourcing ingredients sustainably or showcasing British products on the global stage, the food and drink sector is full of great examples of how businesses can be both successful and responsible. This year’s winners are an inspiration to all businesses, both in and out of the food chain, and show not only what can be achieved when companies are committed to making a positive difference, but also why our sector is a such great place to be.”The FDF’s Community Partnership Awards aim to award UK food and drink firms for their contribution to the economy and the many different communities in which they operate.last_img read more
