The project site is located west of the town of Estremoz, which is distant about 2 miles, integrating a rural area which consists of properties punctuated by buildings for housing and agricultural support. In the last stretch of the site access, the path is flanked by low dry stone walls just below the ridge line, setting the quota limit of the high ground. The lot, oblong and without geometric order, extends to the east, down to a small valley where runs a seasonal water line and is populated by olive trees. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe house is implanted on a zone where the topography softens, interrupting the dominant descent movement. The location of this plain area is also the point where the view of the castle of Estremoz is more evident and interesting. The castle watchtower is an irresistible reference. Here the density of trees is smaller, if we disregard the lower part of the water line, therefore, this implantation avoids major cuts on a system intended to be preserved.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGOn the arrival, from the public path, the house appears to be embedded, small-scaled, recognizing the presence of the aforementioned stone walls and the sheer size of the path. This access is done between trees and low building. In the opposite elevation, in the East, the house takes its real size, resting on the base that forms the yard and connects to the tank. This process is concluded at an existing rocky outcrop facing the tank. Save this picture!PlanThe cloister is the drawing generator, with which the establishment of the house stabilizes and is formalized, giving it meaning and intentionality. Through it are formally staged transitions, culminating in the mentioned point of view on the Estremoz castle, by the tank. The volumes that orbit the cloister reveal, in their cut boundaries, the fickle topography in which the house is anchored. South from the house center (cloister), a long wall ends in a volume that touches the lot boundary setting a break and creating a shadow that announces the beginning of the access route.

Quezon City court issues arrest warrant vs Trillanes

first_imgMANILA – A Quezon City court hasordered the arrest of former senator Antonio Trillanes IV and 10 others chargedwith conspiracy to commit sedition over the release of a video linkingPresident Rodrigo Duterte and his family to the illegal drug trade. Aside from Trillanes, arrest warrantswere also issued against Peter Joemel “Bikoy” Advincula, Fr. FlavianoVillanueva, Fr. Albert Alejo, Boom Enriquez, Yoly Ong-Villanueva, JonnellSanggalang, JM Saracho, Eduardo Acierto, Vicente Romano, and a certain“Monique.”But prosecutors said they will consider making Advincula a state witness.The case stemmed from allegations made by Advincula that members of theopposition plotted to discredit the Duterte administration by linking thePresident and his family to the illegal drug trade.In the video, Advincula tagged Duterte’s son Paolo, son-in-law Manases Carpio,and long-time aide and now senator Christopher Go in the drug trade but latertook back all his claims, saying the opposition had put him up to it./PN The controversial “Ang TotoongNarcolist” video was released during the 2019 midterm elections.center_img Quezon City Metropolitan TrialCourt-Branch 138;s Judge Kristine Suarez released the arrest warrant yesterday.last_img read more


first_imgTHERE was heartache for Carndonagh Ladies after they lost the Ulster Ladies Junior Final in the dying minutes to St Dympna’s of Dromore at Celtic Park in Derry this afternoon.The Carn ladies have had a fabulous season and can hold their heads high after going all the way to the final.The Donegal champions led early on thanks to two goals, leading 2-05 to 0-05. And it was a lead they would hold well into the second half.With six minutes to go, they still held a three point lead – 3-07 to 1-10.But the Tyrone junior champions came back and the Carndonagh dream of Ulster glory fell apart.St Dympna’s fired over a point, before hitting a goal and added two more to win 2-13 to 3-07, a three point win. The Carndonagh Ladies however can be proud for a club which only began ladies football a few years ago. HEARTACHE FOR CARN IN ULSTER LADIES JUNIOR FINAL was last modified: November 1st, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Carndonagh LadiesDromoreSt Dympna’sUlster Finallast_img read more

Half-time: Brentford 0 Brighton 0

first_imgAndre Gray’s sliced effort that was cleared off the line was the closest Brentford came to a first-half lead in the FA Cup third round.Gray rounded Brighton keeper David Stockdale and tried to find the net from an acute angle but instead watched his shot trickle along the goal-line before being booted away in the second minute.A Bees side with five changes also threatened through Jota and Alan Judge, while Sam Baldock was inches away from scoring for the Seagulls at the other end.Jack Bonham made his first appearance of the season in the Brentford goal, while Tommy Smith made his first start since August and Arsenal loanee Jon Toral also began the match.Harlee Dean and Toumani Diagouraga also came in while David Button, Jonathan Douglas and on-loan Spurs midfielder Alex Pritchard were not in the matchday squad. Brentford: Bonham, Odubajo, Dean, Tarkowski, Bidwell, Diagouraga, Toral, Judge, Jota, Smith, Gray.Subs: Lee, Craig, Saunders, Tebar, Dallas, Ywnnaris, Proschwitz.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Huddersfield ‘lucky’ to win – Wagner

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesHuddersfield Town boss David Wagner felt his side were lucky to win at QPR.The Terriers boosted their promotion hopes with a 2-1 victory at Loftus Road, where first-half goals from Izzy Brown and Nahki Wells put them in control.Luke Freeman pulled a goal back on the hour mark and Wagner admitted Rangers deserved a least a point.“We have to be honest; we were not at our best and I think we were lucky today,” Wagner said,“QPR were very good. They were very aggressive, created on the wings and our keeper Danny Ward was by miles the best player on the pitch, which I think says everything.“We got three lucky points, but three points are three points and we are so happy to have got them.“We should not forget also that we scored two wonderful goals and created other opportunities as well.“But in my opinion QPR deserved more than they got. It doesn’t change that we have got three three points though.“We scored two great goals and in the second half we were unable keep the pressure off.“But how we defended this, and how Wardy kept us in the game and we fought to keep the ball out of our net, was great to see.”See also:Holloway convinced QPR will be safe   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Life, an Elegantly Simple Mistake

first_imgThe ribosome is a complex molecular machine made up of multiple protein and RNA parts.  Last year, winners of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (see 10/10/2009) were praised for elucidating the structure and activity of ribosomes.  News stories described “the whole complicated process of transcription initiation, an operation that is of crucial importance in all organisms, because it determines which genes are expressed, and when.”  The process from gene to protein “must be carried out with great precision” and involves “the use of complicated assemblies made up of many different proteins, often referred to as molecular machines.”  (See also 09/03/2009 and the 08/24/2009 entry, “DNA Translator More Complicated Than Thought.”)    Researchers at the Salk Institute, however, essentially said this week in a press release, Elementary, my dear Watson-Crick: as for the origin of life, “elegantly simple organizing principles seen in ribosomes.”  The press release explained, “Taking their hints from relics of this evolution left behind in modern cells, researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies concluded that after only two waves of ‘matching’ and some last minute fiddling, all 20 commonly used amino acids were firmly linked with their respective codons, setting the stage for the emergence of proteins with unique, defined sequences and properties.”  Their conclusions are being published by PNAS next week.personified in this short press release was astounding.  Like some goddess, “Evolution” seemed to be working toward personal goals all over the place:…two waves of ‘matching’ and some last minute fiddling…“Although different algorithms, or codes, were likely tested during a long period of chemical evolution, the modern code proved so robust that, once it was established, it gave birth to the entire tree of life,” says the study’s lead author Lei Wang, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Chemical Biology and Proteomics Laboratory.If chemical or physical interactions between amino acids and nucleotide indeed drove the formation of the genetic code, [David B. F.] Johnson reasoned, then he should be able to find relics of this mutual affinity in modern cells.“Also, the ribosome emerged from an early evolutionary stage of life to help with the translation of the genetic code before the last universal common ancestor,” explains [Lei] Wang …“We now believe that the genetic code was established in two different stages,” says Johnson.But once some primitive translational mechanism had been established, new amino acids were added to the mix and started infiltrating the genetic code based on specific amino acid/anticodon interactions.“We found evidence that a few amino acids were reassigned to a different codon but once the code was in place it took over,” says Johnson.  “It might not have been the best possible solution but the only one that was viable at the time.” The authors admitted to only one area where their work did not “shed light” –Their data does not shed much light on the early code, consisting of prebiotically available amino acids—the kind generated in Stanley Miller’s famous “zap”-experiment.“Zap experiment.”  Has kind of a Frankenstein ring to it, does it not?  PhysOrg echoed the whole press release without a double-take.Here’s an entry parents can use to hone their precocious students’ baloney detecting skills.  It’s too easy for high schoolers, though.  Better put this in the file for junior high.  The whole article is like a primer on how not to reason scientifically.  Many of the classic fallacies are present: personification, of course, but also glittering generalities, loaded words (euphemism), card stacking, sidestepping, circular reasoning, non-sequitur, and much more.  Particularly noteworthy are the miracle phrases (emergence; gave birth to the entire tree of life) and personifications hidden in passive-voice verbs and subjunctive mood constructions (amino acids were firmly linked with their respective codons; the modern code proved so robust that, once it was established).  A simple exercise when seeing these phrases is to stop and ask, WHO linked it?  WHO proved it robust?  WHO established it?  It will be a profound educational revelation for a young student to realize there are actually irrational people in our scientific institutions saying dumb things.    Don’t let evolutionists, who are supposed to believe evolution is mindless and directionless, get away with personification.  It is the besetting sin of the Darwin Party.  We need to turn out an army of baloney-detecting young people to arrest the logical drunks, even when they hark from prestigious organizations like the Salk Institute.  If they want to engage in Frankenscience, fine: just make them be consistent.  No guidance, no interference, no assuming what needs to be proved, no baloney.  Do the zap experiment the right way: turn the zapper on the sea water, walk away, and watch it, with hands off, like a good empiricist, for millions of years.  Anybody want to predict how many codes and ribosomes and translation mechanisms will “emerge” from the zap experiment?  Zip.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Danny Glover, President Zuma catch up

first_img30 May 2013American actor and activist Danny Glover paid a visit to South African President Jacob Zuma in Cape Town on Wednesday.Glover is in the country as part of a delegation of the United Automobile Workers Union of America, led by its president, Bob King.Walking down the steps of the President’s Cape Town residence, Tuynhuys on Wednesday, the two men, who referred to one another as “my brother”, chatted before stopping and smiling at the waiting bevy of journalists and television cameras.Turning to Glover, Zuma said: “I’m sure that they want a picture.”After the media took a picture of them shaking hands, the two enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and, enjoying his brief moment away from the highest office in the land, Zuma teased the media, saying they should not be jealous of him.Wednesday’s meeting was not the first between Zuma and Glover.“As you know, it’s always wonderful to meet a good brother,” Zuma said. “He always visits South Africa. It’s always a good thing to be with us, given what he’s achieved and how much he’s loved by South Africans.”For Glover, perhaps best known as the producer and star of the Lethal Weapon movie series, being in South Africa is always a joy, as he inevitably hears the word “welcome”.“It’s great to be back – even if it’s only for a short while. It’s great to see my friend, President Zuma.”The history of South Africa has long been a part of his life, Glover said, “as someone involved in the anti-apartheid movement in the early ’70s to someone who used the platform of the incredible work of the great South African playwright Athol Furguard to manifest and build my career.“So there’s always a good relationship that I have with this extraordinary country.”Source: read more

South African products: names protected under new agreement

first_imgThe names of a selection of South African products are now protected under a new agreement with the European Union (EU). It follows from a bilateral protocol on geographic indicators negotiated between the republic and the EU.South Africa said 102 wine names would be protected under the agreement and three agricultural product names, namely rooibos, Karoo lamb, and honeybush tea.In addition, an economic partnership agreement between the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and EU has been negotiated.#PostCab New agreement with EU will see 102 wine names, Karoo lamb, rooibos and honeybush (teas) names protected GD— EWN Reporter (@ewnreporter) May 26, 2016It allowed a single trade regime with the EU, said Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe, and “would enhance the preferential access of some products to the EU such as sugar, ethanol, wine, fish and fruit”, reported news website Business Day.“[The agreement] further demonstrates that our country is on a path to recovery and continues to be a viable investment destination,” the Cabinet said. “It ensures in line with the National Development Plan’s objectives that South Africa advances industrialisation and promotes South African exports into the EU market.”The agreement also promotes the development of regional value chains in Africa, contributing to regional integration.South reporterlast_img read more

While the Internet is a fantastic tool to conduct business and communicate with friends and colleagues, the constant distractions can and do have an interruptive effect on how we think and learn.The animation team at Epipheo Studios recently interviewed Carr and put together a video on the topics expressed in The Shallows.
