The construction field, with 1690 sqm, is located in a area with very positive conditions in order to develop a quality solution, not only paisagistique as architectonic one. The surroundings are mainly occupied by isolated houses, with great wooded areas, predominantly pine trees that protect and apparently increase distance between constructions, offering a less modified environment, with the sea and the beach in a small distance too. The purpose was to design a house that would be used as a vacations destiny, by a family that enjoys a lot the beach and the summer. Save this picture!SituationThe need to create a common area in the house that could serve many different and polyvalent utilizations, and at the same time the need to empower the three bedrooms, giving them a private character, have worked to develop an idea of house that was the result of the soma between distinct parts, which from a central moment, could solve the horizontal and vertical distribution. Save this picture!SectionsIn that way, the proposal is the result of the coupling of a series of volumes, in direct relation with that central distribution area, that in the ground floor allows permeability and union between different zonings (this are public programs like the living rooms, dinner room, kitchen, studio, etc.) but in the first floor, because there are only private areas, they avoid the referred permeability and are designed with absolute autonomy between them. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGAt the same time, the need to adapt the house to a hot clime, influences the search for other concepts, like the will that the house would result in a complex volumetry, with the several volumes in different positions, conferring a less unitary treatment of the building, exploiting the design of shadows, getting smaller the windows to the exterior and using region materials. The developed house, solves a common space opened for the exterior, with a strong connection between them, that by the way that is getting less social, more private, gains protection mechanisms.

Branson would give compensation to charity

In a letter to The Guardian today in response to the newspaper’s report that he was seeking compensation for his failed National Lottery licence bid, Sir Richard Branson says that he would give the money to charity. “I assure you, ” he wrote, “that if the government does insist that the money comes from the Good Cause Fund, then any costs I do retrieve I would either give to charity or… use it to set up a rival lottery with 100% of profits going to good causes.” Read Branson: I’ll give the money to charity at the Guardian.  18 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Branson would give compensation to charity AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Call to make Limerick roads safer for cyclists

first_imgAdvertisement Brian Leddin will run for the Green Party in the 2019 local elections. pic: Conor BuckleyONE OF the founders of the Limerick Cycling Campaign has expressed disappointment over the Government’s decision not to proceed with legislation to make the road safer for cyclists.The proposal, contained in the Road Traffic (Minimum Passing Distance of Cyclists) Bill, would have made it an offence to pass within a metre of a cyclist on roads with a speed limit under 50km/h and within 1.5 metres on roads with a limit of 50km/h or higher.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up But Minister Shane Ross said he was dropping the plan on the basis that it would be impossible to police and enforce.Brian Leddin, who is the Green Party’s local election candidate for City North, told the Limerick Post that the only way that Limerick people will get back on their bikes and reduce traffic congestion is to make the roads safe for them.“Studies show that 70 per cent of all car journeys in Limerick are three kilometres or less. If we could get even one-quarter of those journeys to convert to bike journeys, it would make a huge difference,” he said.Mr Leddin, pointed to the number of school children who travel by car every day.“Parents are rightly concerned about their children’s safety and only a tiny number of children cycle to school. According to the last census, less than four per cent of boys in secondary school cycled to and from school and only 0.4 per cent of girls.“We can greatly improve these figures by putting safe cycling infrastructure in place. School traffic is one of the single biggest factors in traffic congestion. If we could make the roads safe for children to cycle it would massively reduce traffic problems”.Mr Leddin pointed to the Dutch policy of providing segregated bicycle lanes on almost every road, with a small kerb to divide and protect cyclists from motor traffic.“The majority of our roads are wide enough to have segregated lanes. If we had them everybody would feel safe in letting their children cycle to school and lots of people would consider using a bike rather than the car, particularly for short journeys. There’s an excellent cycle lane out to UL and it’s widely used, which proves the point.“Cycling would make a real difference to traffic problems but we also know it’s a great way to get exercise and it’s becoming very popular as a tourism leisure pursuit. The minimum passing legislation being dropped is a disappointment but we need to start planning for cycling as a realistic means of transport.”“There are many aspects to the challenge ahead of us but improving the safety of cyclists is key to increasing cycling numbers and reducing dependency on cars”.

Slain California officer Ronil Singh recognized with procession, honor guard viewing

first_imgMerced Police Department(NEWMAN, Calif.) — Slain California police officer Ronil Singh was recognized with a solemn procession and honor guard visitation on Friday.Cpl. Singh, 33, a native of Fiji who dedicated his life to law enforcement, was shot dead in the line of duty early on Dec. 26.President Donald Trump — who tweeted about the case when authorities said the suspected killer was an undocumented immigrant — spoke with Singh’s family and local California law enforcement officers on Thursday, said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.The suspect, Gustavo Perez Arriaga, fled after shooting Singh at a traffic stop, according to the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department. Following a massive manhunt, Arriaga was arrested two days later in Bakersfield, California, 200 miles south of where the alleged crime took place.Arriaga, an undocumented immigrant, was allegedly trying to flee to Mexico, authorities said.Singh had been with the Newman Police Department since July 2011, the sheriff’s office said. He previously served with the Merced County Sheriff’s Department, according to California Gov. Jerry Brown.Singh is survived by his wife and 5-month-old son.“This is a man that I saw every day he worked,” an emotional Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson said of Singh. “This is a man that I relieved on Christmas Day so he could go home and spend some time with his family and his newborn child.”“He truly loved what he did,” added Richardson. “You’ve never seen a man smile more than him.”Singh’s funeral will take place Saturday.At his arraignment Wednesday, Arriaga told the judge that his real name is Paulo Virgen Mendoza and that Gustavo Arriaga is one of his aliases, ABC San Francisco station KGO reported. At least three aliases were listed on Arriaga’s criminal complaint.Several others have been arrested for allegedly helping Arriaga.Arriaga did not enter a plea during the hearing and his attorney questioned his mental competency, according to KGO. The case has been suspended until he receives a mental health evaluation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Neighbors of alleged Virginia Beach mass shooter shocked by massacre

first_imgChip Somodevilla/Getty Images(VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.) — At 6:45 on Friday morning, a neighbor spotted the man, sitting idly in his car in a residential neighborhood some 11 miles from the Virginia Beach waterfront. She thought about waving hello, but stopped herself, remembering that he tended to keep to himself.Nine hours later, at 4 in the afternoon, that man allegedly entered the Virginia Beach Municipal Center with two .45-caliber handguns, and went floor-to-floor, indiscriminately killing 11 of his co-workers and a contractor before police shot him dead during a fierce gun battle, officials said on Saturday.Virginia Beach police Chief James Cervera identified the suspect as DeWayne Craddock, a 40-year-old city employee with a security pass to enter the building, who had worked at the public utilities department for 15 years. The police chief said it would be the “only time we will announce his name.”Police say they have not yet determined a motive for the rampage, which is the deadliest mass shooting in the United States so far this year.The neighbor who spotted Craddock on Friday morning, Amanda Archer, said she was shocked when she got news of the rampage.“You never think that the person that did [a shooting] is near you, or has any threat to you,” she told ABC News.Another neighbor, Cassidy Howerin, said that Craddock, who lived alone on the upper level of a two-story apartment building, struck her as a “routine-oriented person.”“He would go, do his stuff and then come home,” she said. “Whenever we had a conversation it was quick, straight and to the point.”Police said that Craddock gunned down one victim outside Building 2 of the Municipal Center as he entered the front door, and that no words exchanged between the accused gunman and police during the gunfight.“Once they identified him and he identified them, he immediately opened fire,” Cervera said. “We immediately returned the fire and again, I want everyone to know, this was a long-term, for lack of any other term, long-running gun battle with this individual. This is not what is traditionally a police-involved shooting. This was a long-term, large gunfight.”Both of the weapons allegedly used by Craddock were legally purchased in 2016 and 2018, authorities said. Two other guns were recovered from Craddock’s apartment.As officials add details about how the shooting unfolded, and the community begins to memorialize the victims, few details about Craddock have emerged.Virginia Beach city manager Dave Hansen said that Craddock was an active employee, but declined to say if he had recently been disciplined or was the subject of complaints to human resources.“He had a security pass like all employees have and he was authorized to enter that building,” Hansen said.Court records show that Craddock had no criminal history except for a traffic violation in 2013 in Virginia Beach.He enlisted in the Virginia National Guard in April 1996 and served for 17 years, Cotton Puryear, a spokesman for the Virginia National Guard told ABC News. Craddock had been assigned to the 1st Battalion, 111th Field Artillery Regiment as a cannon crew member, but his records indicate he was never deployed overseas.In 2002, he graduated from Old Dominion University with a degree in civil engineering, a university spokesman said. On Friday night, the university held a vigil in honor of the victims.Eleven of the five women and seven men shot to death at the Municipal Center were city employees, authorities said, and four of the victims wounded in the rampage remained hospitalized on Saturday.The victims were identified as Richard Nettleton, a public utilities engineer for 24 years, Laquita C. Brown of Chesapeake, a public works right-of-way agent for 4 1/2 years; Tara Welch Gallagher of Virginia Beach, a 6-year public works engineer; Mary Louise Gayle of Virginia Beach, a public works engineer for 24 years and a right-of-way agent; Alexander Mikhail Gusev of Virginia Beach, a public works right-of-way employee for 9 years.Also killed were Katherine A. Nixon of Virginia Beach, a public utilities engineer for 10 years; Christopher Kelly Rapp, a public works employee for 11 years; Ryan Keith Cox of Virginia Beach, a public utilities worker for 12 1/2 year; Joshua O. Hardy of Virginia Beach, a 4 1/2-year public utilities engineer technician; Michelle “Missy” Langer of Virginia Beach, a public works administrative assistant for 12 years; and Robert “Bobby” Williams of Chesapeake, a public utilities special projects coordinator for 41 yearsContractor Herbert “Bert” Snelling of Virginia Beach, who was in the Municipal Center to file a permit, was also killed.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
