RUST Architects planned an additional floor to an old apartment block in the north of Tel Aviv. The old neighborhood is being renovated and permits architects to add extensions to the apartment buildings that were built with at the time of the establishment of the State of Israel. The residential buildings that received the title “Railway Buildings” are 2 story structures that were built to house young families, university workers and civil servants in the 1950s.The specific housing structure has a number of stairwells for each block leading to the top floor apartments.Save this picture!© Yoav PeledRUST architects planned on the original top an additional floor with a sloping roof which created a large, tall space that turned the small apartment into a family house with an open balcony and a double-height public space. In order to let natural light in, 4 skylight windows were placed on the sloping roof so that all the interior spaces receive air and light.Save this picture!© Yoav PeledSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Yoav PeledIn order to maintain the simple and modernist design of the building, the architects maintained a functional and convenient division and a simple and suitable design. Shany Tal, an architect and partner at RUST Architects, says “that the process was first and foremost to create comfort in order to turn the small apartment into a family home that can be used by the family for many years to come with the changing functions of a growing family.”Save this picture!© Yoav PeledSave this picture!© Yoav Peled”The use of natural wood, concrete, terrazzo floor and light wood carpentry creates a pleasant environment and allows the family to give it a personal touch with personal objects and elements so that the architecture and fixed elements do not catch too much attention. Light was the most important element and entered gently from all facades and the sloping roof.”Save this picture!© Yoav PeledSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Yoav PeledThe architects planned the addition of the building but left the original concrete beams in order to keep the original character of the building, believing that Israeli housing buildings already have smart and good architecture that can be maximized during this period and not demolished or ignored.Save this picture!© Yoav PeledAll the carpentry and framing details in the house were designed by the architects who also created a white library which is the tallest element in the public space.

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Dec 13, 2012 SHARE Home Energy B20 Powering Navy Building Facebook Twitter Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy) Tom Hicks recently experienced a first-hand look at how biodiesel is being used to heat a Navy base. “The Navy uses an annual average of 30 million barrels of fuel per year which equates to about $4 to $5 billion of fuel cost,” Hicks said during the tour. Because of this, it is important to explore additional and alternative sources like we see here today at St. Julien’s Creek.” Hicks continued, “This is a perfect example of what the Navy is trying to do by using B20, a 20 percent biodiesel, 80 percent conventional fuel to run the steam plant from domestic sources that are competitively priced.” The first Navy plant in the Mid-Atlantic region to use B20 is located in St. Julien’s Creek Annex in Portsmouth, Virginia. The biodiesel blend will provide steam to heat 16 office buildings and 13 warehouses. Over the course of the winter, 235,000 gallons of B20 are expected to be used to create the heat. Previously the plant used traditional, petroleum-based fuel oil. According to theNational Biodiesel Board, the B20 blend is priced competitively with the petroleum based diesel, and will not increase the Navy’s costs to heat the base, while helping to meet the Secretary of the Navy’s goals for greater energy security.

Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vaglio Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU Linkedin Twitter Facebook Facebook printLooking to avoid a fourth consecutive loss, TCU Football will have to limit a strong Kansas State running attack.Anchored by Alex Barnes, the Wildcats have averaged 250 yards and totaled 10 touchdowns on the ground in their last three contests. Barnes ranks second in the Big 12 with 102 yards per game with a league-high nine rushing scores.“You can’t play them the same way you play anyone else,” said head coach Gary Patterson. “If you do, they’ll embarrass you.”Patterson called the Wildcats’ game plan similar to a triple option team.“You can’t play base defense and take on double teams, on defense they’re not going to move around,” said Patterson. “You’re going to know where they stand but they’re very well coached and you have to beat them doing what they do. You know what’s coming, it’s just whether you can stop it or not.”Barnes ran for a career-best 250 yards at Baylor, the fifth-most in school history, with three touchdowns on the day. He also recorded 181 rushing yards and four touchdowns against Oklahoma State.Kansas State running back Alex Barnes (34) scores a touchdown during the second half of an NCAA college football game against Oklahoma State in Manhattan, Kan., Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018. (AP Photo/Orlin Wagner)Barnes and the Kansas State rushing attack have been able to succeed this season due to a veteran offensive line, anchored by Midseason All-American right tackle Dalton Risner.“They’re big and physical and do a great job,” Patterson said of the Wildcats’ offensive line. “You can tell they really work at it and what they’re trying to get accomplished. You don’t fool them very often.”Overall, Kansas State runs a well-managed program in Patterson’s eyes and has emulated his game after watching Wildcat head coach Bill Snyder.“Trying to evaluate people knowing what counts is on the field,” said Patterson, “and trying to run a program where you know the people who come out of it are good people.”The team’s weekly huddle before the halftime break was also inspired by Snyder. Patterson said he loves getting to talk to his team before they head into the locker room because of the short time frame and how each position separates into individual huddles during the halftime break.“Kansas State has been his life,” said Patterson. “As an alumni, you have to appreciate his efforts for what he’s done not only for the university and that city, the state, the people he knows and the things he’s trying to be a part of and the game of football period.”Against Kansas last week, the Horned Frogs held the Jayhawks to 58 rushing yards but allowed 249 passing yards in the 27-26 loss.Kansas State quarterback Skylar Thompson has thrown for 988 yards and five touchdowns in seven games this season and has rushed for 359 yards and four touchdowns. The Wildcats’ top receiver Isaiah Zuber heads the team with 41 catches for 496 receiving yards and three touchdowns.“They are going to be coached well and disciplined,” quarterback Michael Collins said. “We’re focused on ourselves and what we can do well to execute as well as we can on offense.”Collins was a bright spot from the loss, as he completed 23 of his 33 passes for 351 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.“Overall, as an offense, we played alright,” said Collins. “We had a bunch of yards, but in the end, we have to win. The quarterback’s job is to take care of the ball and win, and I didn’t do that. I have to do a better job going forward.”Quarterback Michael Collins (10) threw for 351 yards and a touchdown in his first career start. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comCollins was able to achieve his high completion percentage and yardage total without one of TCU’s top receivers KaVontae Turpin who was dismissed from the program last week.“We almost scored enough points to win a ballgame,” said Patterson. “We were able to complete some third and longs, keep his composure and stay in the pocket. He did it without [Turpin] and didn’t have some of those weapons. You have to give him a lot of credit.”On defense, Wildcats defensive back Duke Shelley has three interceptions on the season, with all three coming within the last three games. He also has 12 total passes defended this year, ranking him second in the Big 12 and sixth in the nation.The Wildcats averaged three sacks, 6.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions during their two games against Baylor and Oklahoma State this season. In their five games before the two-game stretch, they averaged one sack, three tackles for loss and 0.8 interceptions.Collins said the offense has to improve on finishing and taking care of the ball going forward.“There was an interception and on the first drive we got a few feet away from scoring and I just have to put it over,” said Collins. “We have to finish in the red zone. We want the seniors to have the best year possible, so we’re focusing on winning the next four games and taking it one game at a time with Kansas State.”Kickoff against Kansas State is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Indra Mohan Hakasam, correspondent for the daily Amar Assam published in Assam province in India’s extreme northeast, was kidnapped in June by the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA).”If the murder of Hakasam is confirmed, the political and military leaders of the ULFA must bear full responsibility,” said Reporters Without Borders. The local press report of his murder comes at a time of heightened violence with more than 50 people killed in the province in the past week. The international press freedom organisation has appealed to ULFA’s chairman Aradinda Rajkhowa and military leader Paresh Barua to explain the circumstances surrounding the death of the journalist. It also condemned the fact that once again a journalist should have fallen victim to Assam’s separatist conflict.Hakasam, correspondent at Goalpara for the Assam-language daily Amar Assam published in the provincial capital Guwahati, was abducted on 24 June by ULFA members. He was snatched at gunpoint from his home by two armed ULFA members Doleng Rava and Sanjib Rava. The journalist’s wife and two children had no news of him for five months, but recently the local press, citing rebel sources, has been reporting that he has been killed in captivity. His wife, Sabriti Hakasam, told Reporters Without Borders that she believed her husband had been kidnapped because of his independent and brave reporting. She would not believe he was dead until the UFLA provided some proof.The Journalists’ Union of Assam (JUA) held a public demonstration on 21 November to demand that the UFLA provide information about the fate of Hakasam.Journalists have often been caught in the crossfire in Assam’s violent conflict between security forces and separatist rebels, particularly the ULFA. At least five journalists have reportedly been killed in the north east of India in the past ten years. center_img to go further News News IndiaAsia – Pacific Organisation June 10, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on India November 24, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist kidnapped five months ago reportedly killed by Assam separatistslast_img read more

CoreLogic’s Tornado Path Maps aim to provide damage exposure data quickly.According to CoreLogic, the data within Tornado Path Maps will be updated every 15 minutes following a tornado, “displaying area probabilities (from 10 percent up to 90 percent) of tornadic damage.” CoreLogic states that this frequency of updates should allow “insurance carriers to quickly calculate claims needs, this parcel-level exposure analysis means emergency responders, utility companies, transportation departments and others will be able to quickly determine resource allocation and deployment to begin offering on-the-ground support to the people and properties affected.”Curtis McDonald, Senior Professional Product Management and Meteorologist for CoreLogic Weather Verification Services, said in a statement, “Until now, understanding exposure from tornadoes has been a daunting challenge for insurers, as typical ground-based observations and reporting are hampered due to infrastructure damage when a tornado moves through an area. These challenges can create frustrating policyholder experiences. Our goal with Tornado Path Map is to enable insurers to efficiently and accurately identify customers under duress immediately following tornadic storms, meaning they’re able to assist with communications and swift response to help their policyholders in need.”Without proper insurance, many homeowners impacted by natural disasters such as tornadoes may be at increased risk of foreclosure. CoreLogic’s 2019 Insurance Coverage Adequacy Report reveals how underinsurance can leave an impact on the lending industry.According to Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic, “The disruption of a family’s regular flow of income and payments, as well as substantial loss in property value, can trigger mortgage default; especially if homeowners are underinsured and cannot afford to rebuild.”Disruption to income from natural disasters including wildfires, tornadoes, and hurricanes can lead to mortgage defaults, and CoreLogic notes that delinquency and foreclosures typically spike in an affected area following a disaster.“The financial impact of underinsurance touches everyone; this is especially true after a catastrophic event where widespread property damage can cost billions of dollars,” said CoreLogic.A CoreLogic whitepaper on “How Tornado Technologies Work” can be read here.The topic of how the industry should prepare for and respond to disasters will be explored thoroughly at the upcoming Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium, to be hosted June 5-6, 2019, at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans. The Symposium is designed to provide an opportunity for mortgage industry leaders and executives to engage in critical conversations on diligence and preparedness, so the next time natural disaster strikes, the industry will be ready to lend the proper support.

first_imgogolne/iStock(DENVER) — Striking Denver public school teachers could be headed back to classrooms Thursday after reaching a “historic” deal with the school district to boost their pay.The Denver Classroom Teachers Association declared its three-day strike over and members are set to vote on whether to ratify the deal reached about 6 a.m. on Thursday with the Denver Public School District.“This agreement is a win, plain and simple: for our students; for our educators; and for our communities,” union president Henry Roman, an elementary school teacher, said in a statement.The tentative deal invests an additional $23 million in teacher pay, boosting the base salaries of Denver’s more than 5,600 educators by an average of 11.7 percent next year and providing cost of living increases in years two and three of the agreement, according to a statement on the Denver Public School District website.The agreement also reforms the overall pay system for teachers to make it less reliable on pay-for-performance bonuses, which the union had called cumbersome and unreliable.The deal creates a “20-step” salary schedule that will award teachers with higher pay for participating in professional development.The agreement also reforms the so-called “ProComp” system for teachers who work in the highest-poverty schools and in hard-to-fill position by providing incentives of $3,000 and $2,000, respectively.Details of the agreement are expected to be posted on the Denver Classroom Teachers Association website later Thursday.“Teachers are expected to return to work in order to receive pay today,” the school district’s statement reads.The agreement must be ratified by the entire union membership and approved by the Denver Board of Education.“We’re very pleased to have reached this agreement that provides our educators with a fair, transparent, and highly competitive salary system,” the school district’s statement reads.The agreement not only ends the first teachers’ strike in Denver in 25 years — it concludes 15 months of sometimes acrimonious negotiations.Both sides of the labor negotiations hope the agreement will be enough to keep teachers from going to neighboring school districts to get a hike in pay. During the strike, union officials said the district had a teacher-turnover rate of more than 20 percent a year due to educators moving to other school districts to get a pay boost.Roman said the deal “provides stability for students who, for the past ten years, have had their education disrupted by a compensation schedule that drove their teachers away from the district.”Amie Baca-Oehlert, president of the Colorado Education Association, praised teachers for “being brave and bold and for standing up for Denver students and our profession” in a statement.“They have led the way for our entire state by bringing to the forefront our students’ need for qualified, committed, and caring educators that can afford to stay in the classroom and live in the communities where they teach,” Baca-Oehlert’s statement reads.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgIleft my job as personnel manager in London to relocate to another part of thecountry, to be nearer my friends and family, and buy a property (I could notafford what I wanted in London). I found it difficult to get a job in the Northwhile working in London, so I resigned, knowing I had a three-month noticeperiod and hoping to find something before I left. It has taken longer than Ithought to get work and I am concerned that a gap on my CV will be a problem.Will the fact I left a job without one to go to and have not been working for acouple of months go against me? I am looking for locum work to fill the gap.PeterLewis, consultant, Chiumento Havinga break is fine, as long as you have a justifiable reason. Relocating to adifferent area having gained London experience is a valid reason reflecting, nodoubt, a carefully thought out career strategy. Whenputting over your case, stress the determination you have brought to fulfillingthis career decision. By implication, you will bring the same qualities –decisiveness and determination – to your new role.Ashort gap should not be hard to explain and it should not count against you, inthe light of your reasons for leaving your old job. Whatwill become important is how you use this time, particularly the thoroughnessof your job search and the opportunity to upgrade your skills. Show that yourjob-hunting has been conducted with professionalism. It sounds as if you areconcentrating on the advertised jobs market, which covers half or less of theopportunities around. Use your connections to find out about employers and sendthem speculative applications.Inthe meantime, getting a locum, consultancy or interim assignment could be agood way of gaining experience and contacts in your area. It will also help tofill any potential gaps in your CV.JoSelby, associate director, EJ Human ResourcesResigningin order to find new employment is not uncommon, and is something prospectiveemployers are familiar with. It is unfortunate that your leaving your previousemployers coincided with the economic slowdown and hence it has taken youlonger than anticipated to secure a new position. Whileit is not ideal to have a gap on your CV, so long as you have a good reason,which you have, the fact you are not working and so immediately available canbe attractive to prospective employers. Havingsaid that, I recommend you continue looking for locum or contract work, and youmight want to widen your net beyond agencies in your search for new employment.MargaretMalpas, joint managing director, Malpas Flexible LearningIthink in London the reality of difficulties in the job market elsewhere areoften not so apparent to us. Think about how you can fill the gap with positivethings to offer a future employer. This could include locum work, charitablework or training and developing new skills.
