But brimming storage may not result in high withdrawals, traders and analysts said. “Even if you have a large amount of LNG in storage, you only send out a certain amount to optimise future profits, depending on how many ships you expect in the future,” said Igor Pipkin, a gas market analyst at Norway’s Nena consultancy. “Just because you have plenty in storage, doesn’t mean you have high send-outs.” Thursday 14 October 2010 9:22 pm Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Villa Old Oaks / OFIS arhitekti

first_imgArchDaily Text description provided by the architects. The private client convoked a proper architectural competition for five invited offices, the idea being to choose an architect for his new residence. The residence is situated in a new neighborhood of six larger villas. The unique feature of the site is a splendid view of a stand of oak trees that are over a hundred years old. The terrain slopes down towards these trees. To guarantee that most of the major spaces will have access to this view, the house is organized in stepped levels following the terrain. The outline of the house keeps to the shape of the plot of land, minus four meters all around, the minimum distance Slovenian law calls for vis-à-vis one’s neighbors. Save this picture!The heart of the house is an external covered courtyard. Main spaces such as the entrance lobby and staircase, the children’s playroom, the dining, living, bedroom and work areas overlook this space. These rooms, plus the wellness area with its small pool, also have a view of the park. The staircase roof is glazed. The courtyard roof is part-glass, part-wood and has views of the sky and the treetops, thus creating a strong link between inside and outside. Save this picture!Structurally, we wanted to achieve a column-less ground floor. The ceiling of the dining and living area is slung from a Vierendeel beam hidden in the walls of the floors above. The glass construction and frames are also handled with minimum supports. Other programs inside the house follow the client’s brief, which was very precise. His is an interesting lifestyle, what with working partly at home and having different hobbies. Security and fire escape issues are important, as is the clear division of private areas of the house and those where guests are allowed to wear shoes or where one receives the postman. Save this picture!The house has also to be “intelligent”. Various functions such as air conditioning, security and sun-responsive external shade can be controlled by software, and different ambients can be created using lights and music. Sustainable issues Save this picture!The house is a private residence positioned in the neighborhood of 6 larger villas. The quality of the site is a beautiful view to the existing common park with oaks over 100 years old. Therefore the aim of the building was to open view from all main spaces of the house towards these trees. Save this picture!The building is constructed in half-floors. In the heart of the building there is a stepped courtyard, where all the main spaces open. The building was to provide ideal daylight conditions combined with efficient indoor and outdoor climate concept. In Slovenia there are extreme climate conditions; with hot summer, when temperatures rise up to 35C and cold winter when they drop below -10C or more. In addition there is rain in spring and autumn. Save this picture!The client required an environmentally sustainable concept that would conserve energy and natural resources. Also he required an external space, that would be usable both, in sunny and in rainy days. The spaces of the house are therefore organized around external atrium. The combination of the atrium, the roof of the atrium and the house and existing trees around the house create a sustainable concept such as: Save this picture!The half – transparent and half – non transparent ventilated membrane roof of the external atrium creates and airy rain-proof external space. In combination with dense greenery of surrounding trees atrium is cool in summer and provides rain protection. One can enjoy outdoor intimacy, since atrium is protected also against views of the neighbors both, in sunny and in rainy days. Save this picture!In winter, when trees are leaf-less sun penetrates through transparent roof and atrium accumulates the energy and passes it inside the house. The sun also penetrates through glazed roof of the interior. In addition the facades are combined with pivoting wooden louvers that provide protection against isolation and control ingress of day-light. On hot days the louver elements are computer operated to follow the course of the sun. It is also possible to darken the working rooms and bedrooms completely. The concept of atrium, semi-glazed roof and louvers allows major savings to be made in the amount of electrical energy needed for lightning, cooling and heating. In addition, direct isolation via the facades and roof results in a high passive thermal yield during the heating period. In summer in contrast effective sun shading helps to minimize cooling energy needs.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessZira Island Carbon Neutral Master Plan / BIG ArchitectsArticlesAbalos+Sentkiewicz project for the Taipei Performing Arts CentreArticles Share Houses Save this picture!+ 19 Share “COPY” Year:  CopyHouses•Ljubljana, Slovenia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/12751/villa-old-oaks-ofis-arhitekti Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/12751/villa-old-oaks-ofis-arhitekti Clipboard CopyAbout this officeOFIS ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLjubljanaWoodHousesSloveniaPublished on January 30, 2009Cite: “Villa Old Oaks / OFIS arhitekti” 30 Jan 2009.

Aireys Ramp House / Irons McDuff Architecture

Intent was to create a strong sense of escape to the coastal bushland, for a client looking for spatial reprieve from their small dwelling and a timber dwelling. The challenge was its location in a bushfire prone, suburban sub-division. Simple principles of defence against cold ocean winds and hot westerly sun, maximising north light and tightly planned circulation, led to the idea of an arm of enveloping the private space within, wrapping itself around as protection against the prevailing conditions.Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseAs the house descends into the site, its tight skin of bushfire resistant timber with limited openings, expands inviting the native landscape and sunlight into the spaces. Zoned internal spaces descend into the site in a similar manner: the more enclosed sleeping spaces elevated in the tightly skinned box; the living spaces open and engaged with the native landscape.Save this picture!Floors plansThe base of coloured concrete blocks embeds itself in the ground, contributing to fire defence, while the upper timber level floats on steel structure integrating the carport below. The tight timber skin continues across decks and entries to the west in the form of battened flyscreens, contributing to the defensive approach, while allowing cross ventilation and privacy within.Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseSave this picture!© Nic GranleeseArrival immediately imbues escape. Entering the house, occupants close the street behind, enveloped within. Limed plywood linings, timber floors and bagged blockwork establish a sense of quiet warmth and containment. As one descends into the house, this patina of natural materials opens into the landscape, establishing the final connection with respite.Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseCarefully configured circulation, expansive opening to the deck area and internally expressed roof form provide a spatial generosity that belies the small footprint. Daybeds, sleeping compartments and storage elements, integrated in areas such as steps, contribute further to the efficient footprint, their concealment allowing focus on the external landscape.Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseThe overall form acknowledges its location within a peri-urban bush setting. Its front responds to street; the ramp gesturing entry for public arrival. Its overall form and materiality return to the origin of its landscape place. The simple skillion roof falls with the falls of the site. Elevated to one end, hovering itself to form a carport, it falls down to the site edge, wrapping itself down again as the lower levels embed in the ground. Materials of natural inherent texture and colour are muted within the bush landscape.Save this picture!© Nic GranleeseProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Grundtvig’s Church / Peder Vilhelm Jensen-KlintArchitecture ClassicsCafé Parallel / TEMPSelected Projects Share “COPY” Photographs:  Nic Granleese Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Australia Aireys Ramp House / Irons McDuff Architecture Aireys Ramp House / Irons McDuff ArchitectureSave this projectSaveAireys Ramp House / Irons McDuff Architecture Architects: Irons McDuff Architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903618/aireys-ramp-house-irons-mcduff-architecture Clipboard Houses Photographs “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/903618/aireys-ramp-house-irons-mcduff-architecture Clipboard CopyHouses•Aireys Inlet, Australia 2016 ArchDaily Year:  Projects Save this picture!© Nic Granleese+ 12Curated by Fernanda Castro Share CopyAbout this officeIrons McDuff ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAireys InletAustraliaPublished on October 11, 2018Cite: “Aireys Ramp House / Irons McDuff Architecture” 10 Oct 2018.

If correct, it means that the US public has donated online alone more cash than the US government has pledged in aid at this stage, despite increasing its initial pledge 10-fold.“The phenomenal amount of money donated online is evidence that the Internet is now the accepted way to contribute to a cause,” said Kintera’s CEO, Harry E. Gruber, M.D. “Donating online offers consumers the definitive giving experience, combining immediacy, convenience and confidence. Consumers can give online to help in a tragic event of this nature, and feel like they have made an immediate impact.”Dr. Gruber added that the speed and flexibility of handling donations online was essential in an emergency situation such as this. “Since most nonprofits have not had time to begin direct mail campaigns or other offline activities, funds donated online are critically needed to begin relief efforts.”The Web is still attracting new donors. Nearly 300,000 new donors were added to Kintera’s client databases in the week after the tsunami earthquake disaster.last_img read more

Children enjoyed breakfast, Christmas caroling, a visit from Santa, and opening presents.Christmas came early to Hillsides this year for the children who live in the Residential Treatment Services program as they celebrated the annual Hillsides Christmas celebration the morning of December 22.The 62 children who live on the Hillsides Pasadena campus were dressed in their holiday best, the boys in buttoned-down shirts and Christmas sweaters and the girls in festive dresses. They first enjoyed a special breakfast of their choosing — French toast, eggs and bacon, and cereal prepared by Hillsides Food Service Director Reggie Williams and his staff. They then sang Christmas carols, led by Stacey Roth, Hillsides chief program officer.As the children were finishing breakfast, Hillsides elves, a.k.a. Hillsides group rehab specialists, were busy delivering gifts to the cottages where the children live. The children then went back to their cottages, where they each opened a stocking and gifts personally selected for them.“Are these all for me?” one little girl asked as she dove into a pile of presents. Another boy yelled in delight as he opened a sports beanie he’d asked for. Another little girl was so overwhelmed with her gifts of a Barbie princess set and a dance leotard that she jumped up and down with excitement.“Many of the children at Hillsides have missed out on these holiday traditions. Receiving gifts have an incredible amount of meaning for the children,” said Joseph M. Costa, Hillsides chief executive officer. “They are more than gifts, they demonstrate to the children that people care for them and are taking the time to do something special for them. Hillsides Christmas celebration is a cherished tradition and we are so thankful for all the donors who fulfilled the holiday wishes of the children. With their support, the children are able to have a happy Christmas.”The Hillsides Christmas continues throughout the day. After opening gifts, children received a visit from Santa and his elves (Hillsides volunteers, including students from local Pasadena schools Mayfield Senior School and Westridge School), and had their photos taken with Santa.The children next enjoy an early holiday dinner, and in the evening perform in a special holiday show at the Church of Angels, which is next door to Hillsides. Family and friends are invited to the performance, and Hillsides recognizes Christmas, Hanukah, and Kwanza. A second holiday show is planned for December 23.On Christmas Eve, December 24, children will attend a party at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena, sponsored by a volunteer group at Hillsides, the Hillsides Volunteer Network. The children will also dress up for that event, and receive stockings from Santa.The Christmas Eve party wraps up a holiday season where numerous organizations and companies provided holiday cheer for many of the 8,950 children and families Hillsides serves, including the children who live in the residential treatment program.

The Single Bench of Justice Harsimran Singh Sethi observed, “The lives of the citizens are being destroyed due to the selling of these banned substance. There is an alarming spike in the number of people buying and selling these contraband in the country, which needs to be controlled in an effective manner so as to minimise the said offence, if not to eradicate.” The Bench noted that India has one of the largest youth population which is a significant factor to power economic growth. However, it ventilated thus, “but an overwhelming majority of addicts are amongst these youths, which has resulted in increase of crime and violence. The increasing number of drug addicts day by day has resulted into an upsetting situation.” The Court was hearing the anticipatory bail of a Rewari resident, Parmila, co-accused in a case for possession and sale of impermissible amount of cannabis. As per the facts of the case, recovery of contraband was done from one Rahul, co-accused in the case, who stated that the said contraband was sold to him by the Petitioner. Accordingly, both of them were booked under Section 20 (b) of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985. Denying all allegations, the Petitioner submitted that she had been wrongly implicated in the case, solely on the basis of a statement given by a drug peddler. She claimed to be innocent and submitted that no banned substance was ever sold by her to the co-accused. Findings Stating that the custodial interrogation of the Petitioner is necessary “for effective interrogation”, especially for the violation of NDPS Act, the Court denied her request for pre-arrest bail. The Bench emphasized, “Once, the allegations have been alleged against the petitioner with regard to selling of the banned substance, which was recovered from the co-accused, the police has to unearth the total facts as to how the petitioner got the said substance in her possession and further whether, there were other people as well to whom the petitioner was selling the same or not.” It added, “The role of operators, who are working from behind the scene, also needs to be brought out as they are the actual offenders and for that purpose custodial interrogation of the petitioner is must.” Case Title: Parmila v.
