The client had bought seven adjacent plots and wanted to create three houses there, for himself and for both his son and daughter´s families.  Save this picture!© Marcos MorillaSave this picture!Basement Plans + ElevationsSave this picture!© Marcos MorillaThe first design decision after visiting the site was to locate the houses in the northern limit, not just because it is the highest point and offers great views, but also to liberate as much land as possible in the sunniest area at the same level of the multipurpose pavilion. Each building occupies its own plot, but there is not any physical division between them and they are connected underground through the garage, so there is only one communal entrance. The open space is conceived as a whole and treated as a park more than as individual gardens.Save this picture!© Marcos MorillaConcept/ Context and strategyHow to design a residential complex that provides playful and social spaces but preserves the intimacy of each family unity? How to project three houses that reflect the character of their inhabitants keeping a formal unity? And how to convince a client with a high budget to avoid following architectural trends?Save this picture!© Marcos MorillaAn underground level linking the building complex works as a base to the emerging volumes of the houses, quite simples, without stridencies, looking for a timelessness image. Using the same material for the façades of the three of them, natural stone, but in different colors -from black to grey to white- gets the unity of the complex but giving some individuality to each of the buildings. While the interior spaces are spacious, from outside the houses appear to be smaller: only two floors are seen, a ground floor for the daytime activities (including dining-room, kitchen, sitting room, toilet, porch) and an upper floor for the night program (bedrooms and bathrooms); the third one is underground, but profusely lighted through the individual courtyards, treated as private and hidden gardens.Save this picture!© Marcos MorillaSave this picture!Ground and First Floor Plans + ElevationsSave this picture!© Marcos MorillaConstruction/ Materials and structureThe shared and most communal space, the multipurpose pavilion, is sheltered under a single concrete slab creating a green roof, thereby diluting the boundaries between the natural garden and the built, in a game half tectonic, half estereotomic. The green roof in continuity with the land not only integrates the building into the environment and minimizes the height above the ground naturally, but also allows to maximize energy savings. The three volumes of the houses are quite compact, following the same purpose of sustainability, and have glazed facades to the south to gain sun radiance and natural light, while those facing the north are mainly blind; a geothermal system provides energy for the heating.Save this picture!© Marcos MorillaProject gallerySee allShow lessH.Stern New York / Studio Arthur CasasSelected ProjectsDowntown New York’s Tallest Residential Skyscraper Tops OutArchitecture News Share Photographs:  Marcos Morilla Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  Projects “COPY”last_img read more

first_img Google+ WhatsApp Pinterest Homepage BannerNews Pinterest Google+ An action plan has been put in place to address deficits in the Child Welfare and Protection Services in County Donegal identified in a HIQA report.The report identified a number of issues in the services including a delay in children and families in accessing a number of child protection and welfare services.The report focused on Donegal which is one of 17 service areas under the control of the Child and Family Agency.HIQA carried out the announced review of services in Donegal over the course of a week in May of this year.The report states that systems in place to manage the risk posed by alleged and or convicted offenders in the community were not robust enough and that the service plan provided was inadequate and insufficiently detailed.The report found that there were waiting lists for children and families in accessing a number of child protection and welfare services and that systems in place to manage waitlists were not always effective and that not all cases were closed in a timely manner.It also found the service was only moderate in compliance in ensuring child protection or family support plans were sufficiently detailed with clear and adequate actions to be taken.HIQA found the Donegal service did not fully implement the Children First act 2011 on a consistent basis.Having reviewed the report, The Child and Family Agency drew up an action plan to address the failings raised in it – some of those measures have already been introduced with more to follow.The full report is available on the HIQA website.

first_imgIN 1978 Mercer1 discussed the probable effects of climate warming on the Antarctic Ice Sheet, predicting that one sign of a warming trend in this region would be the retreat of ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula. Analyses of 50-year meteorological records have since revealed atmospheric warming on the Antarctic Peninsula2,3, and a number of ice shelves have retreated4–8. Here we present time-series of observations of the areal extent of nine ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula, showing that five northerly ones have retreated dramatically in the past fifty years, while those further south show no clear trend. Comparison with airtemperature data shows that the pattern and magnitude of ice-shelf retreat is consistent with the existence of an abrupt thermal limit on iceshelf viability, the isotherm associated with this limit having been driven south by the atmospheric warming. Ice shelves therefore appear to be sensitive indicators of climate change.last_img read more

first_imgLarge, biomass-dominant Southern Ocean copepod species have been much studied, but small and mesopelagic species also play major rôles in these ecosystems. However, little is known of some basic aspects of their ecology. To address this, the abundances of 23 copepod species and genera were analysed from 72 stations sampled during the Discovery Expeditions in the 1920s to 1950s. Stratified net samples, usually to a depth of 1000 m, provided year-round coverage in the Scotia Sea from the Subantarctic Front to the Weddell-Scotia Confluence. Small copepods (Microcalanus pygmaeus, Ctenocalanus spp., Oncaea spp. and Oithona spp.) formed ∼75% of total copepod abundance in the top 1000 m across all major zones. Oithona spp. composed ∼40% of copepod numbers in the Polar Front area and to its south: further north their importance declined. All mesopelagic taxa except for the warmer-water species Metridia lucens and Pleuromamma robusta, extended throughout the entire study area, with smaller regional differences than for the shallower-living species. The species showed a continuum of temperature ranges, and there was no evidence that the Polar Front was a major biogeographic boundary to their distribution. Indeed, several important species, including Oithona spp. (mainly Oithona similis), Ctenocalanus spp., Metridia lucens and Rhincalanus gigas reached maximum numbers in this area. Total copepod abundance was thus higher in the vicinity of the Polar Front than in any other region. Only two copepod families made pronounced seasonal vertical migrations: Eucalaniidae (Eucalanus longiceps and R. gigas) and Calaniidae (Neocalanus tonsus, Calanoides acutus, Calanus simillimus and Calanus propinquus). Some evidence for a winter descent was found for Ctenocalanus spp. and some deeper-living groups: Euchaeta spp. and the Metridiidae, although their migrations were not so great as for the eucalanids and calanids.last_img read more

first_imgMany factors influence relativistic outer radiation belt electron fluxes, such as waves in the ultra low frequency (ULF) Pc5, very low frequency (VLF), and electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) frequency bands, seed electron flux, Dst disturbance levels, substorm occurrence, and solar wind inputs. In this work we compared relativistic electron flux post storm vs. pre‐storm using three methods of analysis: 1) multiple regression to predict flux values following storms, 2) multiple regression to predict the size and direction of the change in electron flux, and 3) multiple logistic regression to predict only the probability of the flux rising or falling. We determined which is the most predictive model, and which factors are most influential. We found that a linear regression predicting the difference in pre‐storm and post storm flux (Model 2) results in the highest validation correlations. The logistic regression used in Model 3 had slightly weaker predictive abilities than the other two models, but had most value in providing a prediction of the probability of the electron flux increasing after a storm. Of the variables used (ULF Pc5 and VLF waves, seed electrons, substorm activity, and EMIC waves), the most influential in the final model were ULF Pc5 waves and the seed electrons. IMF Bz, Dst, and solar wind number density, velocity, and pressure did not improve any of the models, and were deemed unnecessary for effective predictions.last_img read more

first_imgThe Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists have recently announced this years’ winners, with Oxford University Professors Timothy Behrens and Elanor Stride recognised for their work in Neuroscience, and pioneering cancer treatment. The prize will “elevate these select scientists to an international stage that will enable them to be recognised globally,” says Sir Leonard Blavatnik, and will help the winners become established and recognised at what is a relatively early stage in their scientific career. The prize seeks to award and encourage young scientists who have taken big risks early on in their career, with many recipients going on to win other prizes later in their career.  In its third year, the Blavatnik Awards received 80 nominations from 41 academic and research institutions in the UK, and is part of a wider scheme including the Blavatnik Awards in the United States and the Blavatnik Awards in Israel. Finalist Professor Elanor Stride’s use of microbubble technology has helped develop more effective cancer treatments, recognised by the scientific community in awarding her a finalist prize. Dr Brooke Grindlinger, Chief Scientific Officer for scientific Programmes & Awards at the New York Academy of Sciences speaks not only of Prof Stride’s radical clinical research in the use of microbubbles as targeted drug delivery vessels, but also of her innovative start-up company AtoCap which focuses on the treatment of chronic infections.  The professor of Biomedical Engineering at St Catherine’s College is a “bold, young innovator improving lives and inspiring minds.” Professor Behrens of the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Oxford will receive £75,000 for his development of ground-breaking models for mapping the brain’s electrical signals.  Prof Behrens’ work has had large translational implications for how doctors provide brain surgery, using innovative computer models that also have large application in the field of artificial intelligence, and the diagnosis of mental health conditions. The junior research fellow said he was “completely thrilled and honoured” to be this year’s laureate. The award recognises excellence in life sciences, physical sciences & engineering, and chemistry, with a jury of leading UK scientists selecting three laureates and two finalists to receive the largest unrestricted cash prizes available to scientist under the age of 42. Funded by the Blavatink Family Foundation and the New York Academy of Sciences, the award also involves the winners presenting an interactive lecture on their research at a public symposium in March. Other prizes were awarded for work in fields such as gravitational theory, fossil dating and atomic energy research.last_img read more

first_imgWOULD PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON SPILL AREA 51 SECRETS?Dave Stafford for www.theindianalawyer.comThe Indiana Supreme Court on Friday extended the admission of evidence of reduced health care payments in personal injury suits to include reimbursements from government payers. Meanwhile, two justices who concurred with the result wrote separately that they believed the underlying precedential case was wrongly decided.Justices ruled in a closely watched case that drew amicus briefs from Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana, Indiana Trial Lawyers Association, Indiana Health Care Association, American Tort Reform Association and Indiana Legal Foundation. The ruling extends the effect of Stanley v. Walker, 906 N.E.2d 852 (Ind. 2009), that allowed evidence of discounted payments to health care providers made under private insurance.In this case, Ashley N. Lee was injured in a car wreck caused when Mary Patchett drove negligently into oncoming traffic in 2012, according to the record. Lee suffered injuries and her medical bills totaled $87,706.36. But because Lee was enrolled in Healthy Indiana Plan, the health care provider accepted payment of $12,051, an 86 percent discount, as payment in full.Lee moved to prevent the jury in her personal injury suit from hearing evidence of the reduced payment from HIP, and Hamilton Superior Judge Steven R. Nation granted the motion over Patchett’s objection. The Court of Appeals affirmed on interlocutory appeal, but justices Friday reversed.“Today, we hold the rationale of Stanley v. Walker applies equally to reimbursements by government payers,” Justice Geoffrey Slaughter wrote in the majority opinion joined by Justice Mark Massa and Chief Justice Loretta Rush. “The animating principle in both cases is that the medical provider has agreed to accept the reduced reimbursement as full payment for services rendered. The reduced amount is thus a probative, relevant measure of the reasonable value of the plaintiff’s medical care that the factfinder should consider.“We reverse and remand with instructions to allow Patchett to introduce evidence of the reduced HIP rates accepted by Lee’s medical providers so long as Patchett can do so without referencing their source,” the court ruled in Mary K. Patchett v. Ashley N. Lee, 29S04-1610-CT-549.Slaughter wrote that the trial court misinterpreted Stanley by construing it only to apply to discounts negotiated at arm’s length between a provider and an insurer. The majority also held that the court abused its discretion by excluding the reduced HIP reimbursements under Evidence Rule 403.The main opinion notes Indiana continues to chart a middle ground in this area, and that since Stanley was decided, six states have precluded the admission of discounted reimbursements altogether, while two states have held that only the discounted amount paid for services be admitted. Two other states have followed Indiana’s path of allowing both into evidence.“We continue to believe this middle ground not only represents the ‘fairest approach’ … but also honors our deep, abiding faith in the jury system,” Slaughter wrote.Meanwhile, Justice Robert Rucker wrote a concurrence joined by Justice Steven David that aligned with the rationale of the outcome but expressed his continued disagreement with the ruling in Stanley.“I write separately however because I continue to believe Stanley was wrongly decided,” he wrote, citing a dissent he joined written by retired Justice Brent Dickson. “More to the point, Indiana’s collateral source statute [I.C. § 34-44-1-2(c)] could not be any clearer. It precludes admission into evidence of, among other things, ‘payments made by: i) the state or the United States; or ii) any agency, instrumentality, or subdivision of the state or the United States …’ Payments made by HIP — a federal/state government program — unquestionably fall within this prohibition. A contrary reading endorsed by Stanley and reaffirmed today simply cannot be reconciled with the collateral source statute.”But Rucker noted neither party nor multiple amici aligned with either side in this case asked the court to reconsider Stanley, and that the Legislature has not amended the collateral source statute in a way that disapproves of the court’s interpretation.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
