The terrain extends in a slope. The house emerges in the background and draws the boundaries of the site, at its lowest point. An extensive meadow connects the two heights of the site. Two contiguous volumes are created and are separated by a small courtyard with a tree in the centre. At the edge, the volume is released from the ground and only the roof is maintained to protect an outdoor porch area that is adjacent to the pool with the shape of a traditional irrigation tank.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Elevation – NorthSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGRegarding the functional spaces, we separated the private area with 3 bedrooms and kitchen in the first volume, from the social area with living and dining rooms in the second volume, connected to each other by a corridor that also serves as the main entrance of the house and as a connection to the courtyard.

The Single Bench of Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani noted that if such a distinction is created then the entire exercise of decongesting prisons, undertaken in compliance with the Supreme Court’s directions, would be rendered futile. The order has come in a plea moved by a prisoner seeking extension of his parole which was granted by the jail authorities and not by the court. The Petitioner placed reliance on the multiple orders of the Full Bench of this court in a suo moto matter whereby all the interim bails, parole, and furlough granted to prisoners have been extended till October 31 in light of the ongoing pandemic. Appearing for the Petitioner, Mr Akshay Bhandari argued that the very reason for extension of interim orders by the Full Bench, convicts such as the Petitioner, who were granted parole not by court but by the jail administration, meaning thereby whose cases merited grant of parole without need for approaching court, should not be put to a disadvantage; and the parole so granted should also be extended till 31.10.2020. Mr Bhandari further submitted that any distinction drawn between those who were granted parole by court orders and those who were granted parole by orders of the jail administration would be a facetious distinction and would be untenable in law on considerations of equity, fair-play and justice; apart from the fact that such interpretation would pose a huge health hazard to those returning to prison as also to inmates who are now in jail. Why noting that for availing the benefits of the Full Bench’s order the question of whether the parole was granted by the jail is irrelevant, the court observed that: ‘Furthermore, matters are escalated to this court by filing petitions only if a person is aggrieved by the action or inaction on the part of the jail administration; but, if an inmate gets relief from the jail administration, he should not be put to a disadvantage merely because there was no occasion for him to seek relief from this court or from any court subordinate to it.’ The court further highlighted that it would be anathema to the concept of parity if a person is declined extension of an order of parole, furlough or emergency parole merely because he got that relief from the jail administration and not from the court.

UKOG launches horizontal drilling operations at Horse Hill field

first_imgFollowing the completion of the HH-2 Portland pilot well, UKOG has initiated the HH-2z horizontal drilling operations The Horse Hill field is located in Surrey. Photo: courtesy of skeeze from Pixabay. UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) has launched horizontal drilling operations at the onshore Horse Hill field located in the Weald Basin in Surrey, UK.The company has started drilling of the Horse Hill-2z (HH-2z) well with an objective to deliver a 3,200ft horizontal section completely within the most oil productive zone in the Portland reservoir.The horizontal drilling campaign follows the completion of drilling of the Horse Hill-2 (HH-2) Portland pilot well, said UKOG. According to the company, the pilot well’s coring and electric logging programmes further defined the presence and quality of the productive zone in the reservoir.HH-2/2z is the first horizontal well to be drilled in the Portland oil pool of the Horse Hill field.The horizontal well has been designed to be used as a production well in the future. It will have a capability of producing substantially higher flow rates compared to the previously announced 362 barrels of oil per day from the HH-1 vertical Portland discovery well, said UKOG.The company said that after undertaking a planned extensive HH-2z EWT campaign, the HH-2z Portland and the HH-1 Kimmeridge wells are likely to be brought into long term production by the year-end.UKOG chief executive Stephen Sanderson said: “Our confidence in the HH-2z horizontal’s ability to deliver significant flow rates has been further boosted by the pilot well’s better than expected geological results.“Our subsurface team’s focus is now firmly upon steering the well wholly within the target zone, the Portland sweet spot , demonstrably the most oil productive part of the reservoir. I have every confidence we can deliver the desired positive result.”Stakeholders in the Horse Hill fieldLast month, UKOG increased its stake in the Horse Hill field to 85.635% by completing acquisition of Magellan Petroleum (UK) Investment from Tellurian Investments. The acquisition helped UKOG gain Magellan’s 35% direct interest in the Horse Hill oil field, which is contained in the PEDL137 and PEDL246 licences.To develop the onshore oil field, a special-purpose limited company called Horse Hill Developments (HHDL) was created in which UKOG has a direct interest of 77.9%. The remaining stake in HHDL is held by Alba Mineral Resources and Doriemus with the former holding 65% ownership in the Horse Hill field and the PEDL137 and PEDL246 licences.last_img read more

Exclusive: Rapid rise in ‘whole property’ short-let rentals on Airbnb and other sites

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Exclusive: Rapid rise in ‘whole property’ short-let rentals on Airbnb and other sites previous nextHousing MarketExclusive: Rapid rise in ‘whole property’ short-let rentals on Airbnb and other sitesReport shown to The Negotiator by industry data firm Airdna reveals extraordinary rise in properties being rented out via short-let platforms.Sheila Manchester30th July 20190661 Views A shocking new report shown to The Negotiator reveals a rapid growth in the use of short-let websites such as Airbnb and HomeAway.com over the past 12 months in the UK.Across the UK, 188,407 Airbnb and HomeAway listings had a booking in the month of June 2019, up 44% from the previous June. Over the same period, the number of rentals listed on the two platforms increased by 34% to 230,000, figures from Airdna show.These figures suggest the rapidly accelerating rate at which these platforms may be sucking stock out of the traditional rental market and into the ‘unstaffed’ short-lets one.These are classed as platforms where the landlord is directly responsible for managing the rentals including changeovers, rather than using an agency, although the figures also include properties listed by staffed agencies such as GuestReady and Hostmaker.Whole property bookingsThe Airdna research also reveals that the number of nights booked within a ‘whole property’ via these online platforms has exceeded 10 million over a 12 month period for the first time in the UK.But the data also suggests that growth is being driven by Airbnb stealing traditional long-term rental capacity and also grabbing market share from the hospitality industry, both trends estate agents have long suspected Airbnb is driving.Nevertheless occupancy – which has often been cited as Airbnb’s weak point in the past, is also climbing for ‘whole property’ bookings, rising from 55.2% to 68.3% over the past 12 months.As we reported last week, one of the last acts of now former housing minister Kit Malthouse was to confirm that the government currently has no plans to further regulate short-term rental platforms such as Airbnb.homeaway airbnb AirDNA July 30, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Neil Young Debuts In Telluride With New Songs, Bust Outs & Big Jams [Full Audio/Gallery]

first_imgLoad remaining images Promoters in Telluride, Colorado have been trying to get Neil Young to grace the Town Park stage for decades, and this past weekend, the isolated box canyon was treated to two special and intimate shows as the fall colors peaked with bright gold aspen leaves lining the valley. Die hard fans made the pilgrimage from all over to witness these very special shows on the small field in Telluride. While both shows had similarities in set lists, each night had its own very special bust outs and deep cuts.Each show began with Young performing solo, on a piano that has been through both a fire and a flood, before he did a number of solo acoustic classics as the sunset alpenglow peaked. Once Promise of the Real joined Neil onstage, they began with an acoustic/electric section before a full on electric storm.Neil was and always seems to be in top form, and towards the second half of the each show, began to just slaughter his guitars with overdrive, playing epic solo after solo. Each nigh had one song they really let loose on: night one was a 30+ minute “Love and Only Love”, while night two featured a 20+ minute “Down by the River with plenty of room to jam. Fans were also treated to live debuts of five unreleased songs, “Hang Gliders”, “Peace Trail”, “Show Me”, and “Indian Givers.” Many other classics and deep cuts were chosen from Neil’s deep catalog to make the weekend one to truly remember for the crowd lucky enough to make the journey.You can check out a full audio stream of night one below, courtesy of Jam Buzz.The full setlists and a gallery by Elliot Siff Photography can be seen below.Setlist: Neil Young + Promise of the Real at Telluride Town Park, Telluride, CO – 9/30/16Set: After The Gold Rush, Heart Of Gold,

Trouble in paradise: Hawaii’s affordable housing conundrum

first_img Read Full Story With its picturesque island beaches, festive and colorful luaus, and a summery climate year round, many view Hawaii as the ultimate tropical paradise. “There is no question that Hawaii is a beautiful place,” said Jim Secreto, M.P.P. ’11. “But the experience that tourists have while visiting Hawaii masks the very real, day-to-day struggles of the people that live there.”Secreto explored issues of affordable housing and transit-oriented development for the city of Honolulu this past summer as an Ash Center Summer Fellow in Innovation. His work with a team of dedicated staff resulted in the city securing a $2.3 million joint grant from the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development to further improve transit-oriented development in the region.“This is wonderful news for our community, and it reflects the hard work and cooperation of many people,” said Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle in a recent press release. “We are committed to making sure rail transit and transit-oriented development projects are done right, and this grant will be a big help.”Honolulu has recently broken ground on a high-capacity rail corridor transit project to be completed in 2019 which would build 20 miles of rail lines connecting the western side of the island to the city center. By 2030, the majority of Honolulu’s jobs and population are expected to be along this corridor. With the rail project under way, the city of Honolulu has taken this timely opportunity to evaluate ways to make the city more livable for its residents. As part of this effort, Secreto and his colleagues’ winning grant application requests funding to improve Honolulu’s economic competitiveness by increasing opportunities for affordable housing and public transport.last_img read more

Edward Lear’s natural history

first_img“The Natural History of Edward Lear,” which is on view at the Houghton Library through Aug. 18, can be summed up rather whimsically:There was once a man named LearWho loved the absurd, that’s clear.But his first love — it’s true — was the London Zoo,For its parrots, bears, and badgers too.That patient, penciling, painting, young Lear.Lear (1812-1888) is best remembered as a master of nonsense in verse, prose, and song. He gave the limerick new life, and along the way created the “runcible spoon,” “the Jumblies,” and the “bong tree.” But Lear was also an accomplished landscape painter and travel writer. Few people know he composed clever melodies, by ear, to play and sing for friends. (Look at the exhibit’s ninth case for a sample of the music — a Harvard thesis in the making, perhaps.)Even fewer people know that the young Lear was a meticulous painter and illustrator of natural history. It’s a little-explored gap in his life, one that the Houghton show hopes to repair. “This is a relatively unexplored aspect of his career,” said Hope Mayo, the Houghton’s Hofer Curator of Printing and Graphic Arts.The first-floor exhibit is pegged to the 200th anniversary of Lear’s birth, and was guest-curated by naturalist, writer, and historian Robert McCracken Peck, a senior fellow of the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia. Thanks to two early benefactors, Philip Hofer ’21 and William B. Osgood Field, the Houghton has the world’s largest collection of Lear paintings. Among the more than 4,000 items are about 200 studies, sketches, and finished paintings related to natural history.An impoverished child from a large and scattered family, Lear was 15 when he started selling sketches to shopkeepers and coach passengers “for bread and cheese,” he wrote. He combined that enterprise with what he called “morbid disease drawings” for London doctors.By age 17, Lear was well-known among naturalists at the London Zoo for his precision illustrations. And by 19, he published a gorgeous monograph on parrots, what he said was the first of its kind on a single species. “Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots” (1832) includes 42 lush and large, hand-colored lithographs of the birds he most loved. (Lear didn’t mind dying and going to heaven, he once said, but would be more comfortable if parrots were there too.)The monograph did not make the young Lear rich, but it made him one of the most accomplished natural history artists of his era. He influenced two icons of nature illustration, John Gould and John James Audubon, and worked with both.The Houghton exhibit nicely frames Lear’s golden age of natural history painting (1827-1837). The first of the nine glass cases pays homage to the well-known, portly master of word wit, who often depicted himself as a bird. Look for manuscript examples of his nonsense verse, limericks, illustrated alphabets, and whimsical wildlife. There is also an album of sketches and painting he shared with his sister Ann, 21 years his senior. She not only educated Lear but introduced him to the joy of drawing.The exhibit’s eighth case contains a glimpse of the mature Lear: the man who moved to Rome in 1837 to pursue landscape painting, and the restless soul who wrote three illustrated books of his travels. Look for his “Journals of a Landscape Painter in Albania” (1851), including a tint lithograph, called “Avlona,” that depicts pelicans arrayed on a sere plain. (Lear, severely nearsighted by then, first thought they were rows of white stones.)The adventurous Lear was one of the first foreign visitors to remote regions of Albania, and he made art excursions to exotic locales around the Mediterranean, North Africa, and India. (He lived most of his adulthood abroad, and died at his villa in San Remo, Italy, in 1888.) Much of the Houghton collection is landscape studies, which Lear meticulously recorded and filed for future commissions. Most of his landscapes are watercolors, the medium he used in his nature art. But he aspired to oil painting as well. “That’s what got you ahead,” said Mayo of Victorian-era landscape artists, “these large, grandiose oil paintings.”His transition from nature art to landscapes was, in part, inspired by sketching trips to Ireland and the Lake District in the mid-1830s. But the shift was also practical: Lear’s eyesight was failing fast. In 1837 he told Gould that he had to withdraw from scientific illustration, lamenting that he would soon only be able to draw ostriches.By age 17, Lear was well-known among naturalists at the London Zoo for his precision illustrations. And by 19, he published a gorgeous monograph on parrots; examples of his work are included in the exhibit.Lear at ages 15 to 25 had poor eyesight, asthma, chronic bronchitis, epilepsy, and bouts of depression. But he also had the ambition you might expect of a boy scrambling for an income. (Lear, the 20th of 21 children, was born into a prosperous family. But his father, a stockbroker, suffered a financial reversal. By age 4, Edward was living with Ann, who home-schooled him.)The younger Lear also already had a seed of nonsense and whimsy. The exhibit’s second case, for instance, shows Lear’s fruitful and fundamental connection to the London Zoo. But one of the sketches is a parrot study, which includes one bird studying a rotund zoo visitor.The same case shows Lear as serious and professional. Every detailed hair is in place in his ink, graphite, and watercolor study of a small animal called the rock hyrax.The pinnacle of the young artist’s serious pursuit of scientific illustration was his parrot work, which the exhibit lovingly outlines. Plate 7 in his monograph “Red and Yellow Macaw” is among his most famous images. Nearby is Lear’s study for the same final image, complete with brush-stroked swatches of watercolor as he searched for the right tints.The exhibit’s fifth case, on his dealings with Gould, shows Lear’s fondness for owls, the animals that later appeared so frequently in his nonsense sketches. His “Great Horned or Eagle Owl,” created for Gould’s “The Birds of Europe” (1832-1837), shows the young Lear vividly as he was: a master of the real.No display of early Lear would be complete without a look at the influences of Lord Edward Stanley, the 13th earl of Derby, who met Lear in 1831. Soon after, Derby commissioned Lear to record the animals in the menagerie at his family estate near Liverpool, Knowsley Hall. (The 170-acre collection, maintained by a staff of 30, eventually included 619 species of birds alone.)Lear spent countless hours over four years drawing mammals, birds, and reptiles, making more than 100 life portraits. Lear also enjoyed his first sketching tours — and his first years as a painter abroad — thanks to Derby’s fortune.It was at Knowsley too that Lear wrote and illustrated some of his first nonsense poems. “The earl noticed that all the children and the grandchildren of the house were disappearing after dinner,” said Mayo. “They were going down to the housekeeper’s room to hear Mr. Lear recite limericks and draw pictures for them.”“The Natural History of Edward Lear” continues through Aug. 18 at Houghton Library.last_img read more
