For more adequate that an architectural project may be, the program that has to be supplied by a construction varies over time, demanding, not a few, functional and constructive alterations.

Throughout the entire ground floor the openings were enlarged with the means of creating bigger spans and providing a better integration between internal and external areas.

Everything very practical and based on the sole purpose of optimizing conditions of circulation and internal lighting. “All that they wanted was to live elegantly and practically.” summarizes the architect.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThat being said, a big attention was held to the lighting chapter. “On the exterior I opted to let the landscape speak for itself. Whereas on the interiors we used a different math,” she explains, that throughout all the spaces the project explored a maximum potential of all the lighting fixtures, such as the pendants, the lampshades and the lamps.  Without forgetting, of course, the use of a soft palette on the finishing’s and the use of natural materials, two of Fernanda’s main trademarks. “Besides being neutral, they are the most lasting”, concludes.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture on Stage: OFFICE KGDVSLectureDavid Chipperfield Architects to Design Elliptical Campus for Padua University in ItalyArchitecture News Share Photographs:  Fernando Guerra | FG+SG Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Fernanda Marques Groenlândia House / Fernanda Marques Arquitetos AssociadosSave this projectSaveGroenlândia House / Fernanda Marques Arquitetos AssociadosSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG+ 29Curated by Matheus Pereira Share Year:  CopyHouses•São Paulo, Brazil Projectslast_img read more

Dutch journalist of Azerbaijani origin still stuck in Ukraine, despite ruling

He now heads the Amsterdam bureau of Turan TV, an Azerbaijani TV channel run by Azerbaijani exiles that is critical of President Ilham Aliyev’s government.Arrested in Kiev on 14 October 2017 as a result of an Interpol red notice issued at Azerbaijan’s request, he was released conditionally two weeks later. On 13 February, a Kiev appeal court rejected the international warrant for his arrest, but the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office has repeatedly tried, without success, to have him detained again.RSF wrote to prosecutor-general Yuriy Lutsenko in mid-March asking him to reject the extradition request and to allow Huseynli to return to the Netherlands, but no action has so far been taken in response to RSF’s letter. Azerbaijan is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.The Aliyev government has done everything possible to crush media pluralism in recent years, throttling all of the most outspoken media outlets financially or closing them by force. At least 12 journalists and two bloggers are currently detained in connection with their reporting.

It encompasses some 16,000 square feet of usable space and three floors along 87 North Raymond Avenue near the Memorial Park Metro Station in Old Pasadena.Cross Campus Old Pasadena could do for Pasadena what Cross Campus’ original office in Santa Monica did for Santa Monica: lure hundreds of techies and other creative persons and entrepreneurs to collaborate and do business in an environment conducive to productivity.The Santa Monica campus is a hub for Los Angeles’ ongoing entrepreneurship boom. The same effect might be expected when the Old Pasadena campus opens.“Pasadena has a pedigree and the people to be a leading entrepreneurial ecosystem. It is already home to world-class institutions such as Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, and Art Center College of Design,” said Ronen Olshansky, Cross Campus founder and CEO.“With great public transit and a density of food, retail and entertainment options, Pasadena has the raw materials to grow and we’re excited to help catalyze this growth. Many of our current Westside members will be excited that we’re adding an Eastside component to our network”.Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard said Cross Campus’ expansion into Old Pasadena will have a positive economic impact and will generate even more business opportunities in this dynamic commercial district.“I appreciate the effort … put into re-envisioning these buildings and I am grateful to Cross Campus for working with our Pasadena team. This is a win-win for everybody.”Cross Campus Old Pasadena will be larger than the Santa Monica location. It will feature enterprise-class connectivity and audio/video capabilities and new elements tailored to the Pasadena market.Members or tenants of Cross Campus Old Pasadena will have access to business support services as well as introductions to, and office hours with, other entrepreneurs, investors and industry experts.The Old Pasadena campus will emphasize community and collaboration through “rich event programming and members-to-member engagement”. It will be set up to host speaking engagements, launch events, hackathons and workshops.Olshansky said while Pasadena is an exciting market, Cross Campus needed to provide state of the art technology infrastructure to create the right business environment for member companies.He said Cross Campus chose the Old Pasadena location because of real estate developer Rising Realty Partners (RRP) and 5×5 Telecom’s technological enhancements and amenities.In November 2013, RRP and internet entrepreneur David Sacks acquired 87 North Raymond at Memorial Park Station, a three-building complex formerly known as “The Old Pasadena Plaza” that is now the site of Cross Campus. Constructed between 1895 and 1914, the site has multiple historical features.RRP and Sacks commissioned communications technologies solutions provider, 5×5 Telecom, to rebrand the building and completely revamp its technological backbone.5×5 Telecom’s technology at Cross Campus Old Pasadena includes a site-wide fiber backbone, fault-tolerant network redundancy, multiple ISP’s for carrier diversity and on-premises rack space.All these elements aid in providing tenants fiber-to-the-suite speeds provisioned in as little as 24 hours. Wi-Fi coverage will allow tenants and the public to utilize Wi-Fi along Raymond and Holly Streets in the vicinity of the campus, including at Memorial Park across the street.Cross Campus (http://www.crosscamp.us/) rents out its office space in packages. These packages include Private Offices (prices vary); Dedicated Workstation ($600/month); Collaborative Workspace ($350/month); Night + Weekend ($150/month) and Pay as You Go ($150/month).

Democrats Accuse Braun Campaign Of Violating Campaign Finance Laws

first_imgAugust 24, 2018, By Janet WilliamsTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—Days after Republicans filed an ethics complaint against U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly for displaying on his Senate website a silent video of him with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have fired back against the incumbent’s GOP challenger, Mike Braun.A complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission Wednesday accuses Braun of failing to report a $250,000 loan that he made to his own Senate campaign before the May primary within the required 48 hours of the receipt of the money.But Josh Kelley, Braun’s campaign spokesman, said Democrats have it wrong and the report was filed on time. The campaign included a copy of Form 6, the document campaigns file when reporting late donations. It shows Braun reporting the $250,000 loan on time.However, that donation is not available on the FEC website. A separate $386,000 loan that Braun made to his campaign on April 23 shows up as being reported on Form 6 within the required 48-hour timeframe.Donnelly, the incumbent Democrat, is locked in a tight, competitive race against Braun, the Republican who upset two sitting members of Congress to win the nomination.On Monday, Indiana Republicans filed a complaint against Donnelly with the Senate Ethics Committee accusing him of misusing his official office to post a campaign video of him with Kavanaugh. Donnelly met with Kavanaugh last week and posted a video on his Senate website of him greeting the nominee at his office. Posting the video to his official Senate website is not an ethics violation, but it would violate ethics rules if it were to be used as part of his campaign.Wednesday, Indiana Democrats filed the complaint with the FEC.“Donnelly and his Democrat party bosses are just trying to distract Hoosiers from the ethical mistake of using his taxpayer-funded staff to provide video to create political commercials surrounding the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” Kelley said after producing the form showing the campaign filed the $250,000 within 48 hours of the April 23 donation.Michael Feldman, a spokesperson for the Indiana Democratic Party, said what matters is the documentation that appears on the FEC website.“No public record shows that Rep. Braun reported this loan as the law required. It remains clear that Congressmen Rokita and Messer, as well as Hoosier voters, weren’t aware that he made this loan in the critical weeks before the primary,” Feldman said.The original document on the FEC website appears to be a fax sent to the secretary of the Senate that might have been mangled in transmission. View that document here.Christian Hilland, a spokesman with the FEC, said legislation pending before Congress could fix issues like the one with Braun’s report by providing for an electronic transmission of campaign documents.FOOTNOTE: Janet Williams is executive editor of TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.Print Friendly, PDF & EmailFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

New vaccine-related information for women undergoing cancer screenings

first_img Pinterest Facebook (Photo supplied/Berrien County Health Department) Doctors are learning more and more with each person that is vaccinated for coronavirus.One thing they have learned when it comes to women getting the vaccine is that you need to be careful in how you schedule your screenings for breast cancer around when you get both of your doses of the vaccine.Dr. Cameual Wright is an OBG/YN and VP market chief medical officer at CareSource. She said there are signs to look out for to let you know that the vaccine is working in your body.“Swollen lymph nodes are very common as a result of vaccination,” she told WISH-TV. “That’s just our body’s way of mounting a response to the vaccine. It’s a sign that our immune system is revving up and that the vaccine is doing what we want it to do.”Lymph nodes are all over our bodies and for women they are also around the breasts. Dr. Wright said when these lymph nodes get swollen, it can make it more difficult for them to screen you for breast cancer with a mammogram.“When a woman has enlarged lymph nodes, there can be a question in why that is occurring,” Wright said. “Sometimes having a vaccination close to the time of a mammogram can make that picture a little murky.”She said having swollen lymph nodes, even without a vaccine, is not immediately concerning but that it still makes it harder to figure out if there is cancer present during a mammogram.To clear up any of the murkiness, she suggests that if you are due for a mammogram, but are also getting a COVID shot soon, that you either get the mammogram before you are vaccinated, or wait four to six weeks after your second dose of the shot to schedule it.

Teachings from the televangelist

first_imgHe’s a man of the cloth, but he knows his best camera angles as well as he does his Scripture.Former Pentecostal televangelist Carlton Pearson visited Harvard recently to announce his donation to the Andover-Harvard Theological Library of his personal archives, which include thousands of hours of raw and produced footage to give researchers insight into the craft of religious broadcasting.“This is like interring my previous person in a mausoleum for it to be preserved and memorialized and archived for perpetuity,” he said of the footage.Because of its historic and cultural value, the gift from Pearson, who lives in Tulsa, Okla., represents a significant contribution to library collections. Pearson, who studied at Oral Roberts University and worked as a bishop in Tulsa, broke with his church in 2005 after preaching what he called the “gospel of inclusion,” which deviated from traditional Pentecostal ideas. He promoted, instead, beliefs that salvation is not dependent on Pentecostal experience, that hell does not necessarily exist, and that Christianity is not the only path to heaven.The impact of his shift in belief was seismic. Fellow bishops labeled him a heretic, and his parish of thousands dwindled to dozens. But Pearson said he has emerged from the past decade a changed man.“When I lost the ministry, I had to actually pack up my stuff,” he said.That’s when he found time to watch and reflect upon just a small part of his 40-year career. The archive spans his fire-and-brimstone years, beginning when he first went on the air in 1977 with a high-octane televangelism. That footage revived complex memories for him.“It was like looking at a corpse in a coffin of who I used to be. When you have your whole life’s work in plastic crates wrapped up in storage, it’s like you died,” he said. “The attachment and detachment were both simultaneously very difficult.”Pearson kept the archive in deep storage, but it came to light when Jonathan Walton, now Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and professor of religion and society at Harvard Divinity School, went to Tulsa to study how narratives are crafted in religious broadcast. Pearson’s material was so comprehensive and detailed — raw footage from each produced broadcast, financial records, advertising, and even White House correspondence — that Walton immediately recognized an invaluable resource.“Nobody can tell a story about religion in America in the second half of the 20th century without talking about religious broadcasters,” said Walton. “They’ve gone from marginal characters to swearing in presidents.”Religious leaders began utilizing the power of television soon after the medium took off in the 1950s, seizing the opportunity to place the pulpit in parishioners’ living rooms. The industry boomed, and compelling figures such as Oral Roberts and Jim Bakker gained wide followings. Pearson regularly hosted prominent religious leaders on his programs and had an active civic life.“If a picture is worth 1,000 words, these preachers understand that a 20-minute sermon block is worth infinite meaning, and they’re very careful about how they seek to construct that,” Walton explained.When students and researchers come to Harvard, they now will be able to compare and contrast, not just from their fieldwork but from Pearson’s unedited masters, figuring out how narratives about gender, race, and religious fervor are shaped in the editing process.“It’s one thing to be in a service with them and actually see what happens, and it’s another to get the hyper-produced version that’s then marketed and sold,” said Marla Frederick, professor of African and African American Studies and of Religion, whose work also focuses on the intersections of religion, race, gender, media, politics, and economics.“You can see how theology has changed over the years, from the ’70s to now, the evolution in American religious broadcasting. We think of this as an often-conservative theology, but there’s movement and dynamism in what takes place in religious broadcasting.”In June, Pearson’s archive will arrive on campus to be cataloged and eventually digitized.The 63-year-old Pearson said the gift reflects his way of still spreading and nurturing feelings of faith.“Connecting to Harvard is an answer to the command of everywhere,” he said, referencing Christianity’s Great Commission, “because people can online access this from Germany, from Switzerland, from Australia. It really is everywhere.”last_img read more
