With all sides of the house opening onto this reflecting pool, it becomes the focal point of house. The house serves as an example that green architecture doesn’t have to mean living in an insulated box divorced from the environment. On the contrary, the house is an inspiration for those looking for a poetic shade of green. Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio Each pavilion contains a central core made of a steel stud frame, covered in translucent blue or red acrylic panels. To maximize energy efficiency, these colorful cores contain all of the service areas of the house. The volumes are staggered to create a deck in the front of the house, as well as a more private patio to the back. The transparent glass bridge visually unites these exterior living spaces. Additional outdoor rooms are created with accessible roofs; the terraces provide space for plants and alfresco dining. Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio The roof space is covered with a retractable awning made of shading tarp for nurseries and hardware from the nautical industry. The structural system is a modular steel frame infilled with thermasteel panels. The design strategy maximizes prefabricated components, eliminating considerable construction waste. The walls utilized a 4×8 module, topped by 12” clerestory windows. Disciplined use of this module allowed for the installation of full sheets of birch plywood, assuring virtually no waste. Save this picture!© Bercy Chen Studio The thermasteel panels consist of galvanized steel studs with compressed styrofoam, providing a vapor barrier and exceptionally high insulation ratings. No paint was used for walls and concrete floors have been sealed with low VOC sealer. The roof uses a combination of rigid and batt insulation to achieve an insulated R value of 54. The glass walls are double glazed, insulated, tinted and have a low-E coating. Given the hot Texas sun, this high degree of efficiency was critical. The structural frame is exposed, showing the construction process and articulating the house’s facades. Save this picture!1st floor plan The house is oriented around a partial courtyard. With the western wall constructed of insulated SIPS panel the internal walls are free to be open. This allows the majority of the cooling load to be handled with passive natural ventilation. An existing deciduous tree in the center of the ‘court’ provides shade during the summer and allows precious winter light to enter after leaves have fallen. The front yard is xeriscaped with sage, rosemary and oleanders, requiring no water for irrigation. Rainwater from the roof is captured and used for a water garden, which in turn, cools the house both physically and psychologically. Save this picture!2nd floor plan The southern glass façade is covered via a combination of vegetation and a wooden trellis, providing a perfect balance of openness and protection. The design concept was greatly influenced by different regions and cultures. Both the use of the roof as an outdoor living space and the shading devices are derived from Moorish architecture. The body of water and the spatial continuity between inside and outside was inspired by Asian architecture. The structural transparency of the volumes and the minimalist aspect of the interior were derived from Japanese pavilions.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessImagination wins the Troldtekt Award 2012ArticlesHouses + Origins / David Stark WilsonArticles Share “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeBercy Chen StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustinHousesUnited StatesPublished on July 04, 2012Cite: “Annie Residence / Bercy Chen Studio” 04 Jul 2012.

Woman sues the father of her missing toddler: ‘Tell me the truth about what really happened

first_imgDNY59/iStock(NEW YORK) — The mother of Ayla Reynolds, a Maine toddler who vanished in 2011, is filing a wrongful death suit against the little girl’s father in an effort to learn “the truth about what really happened to Ayla.”“Today marks seven years since Ayla was taken from me,” Ayla’s mother, Trista Reynolds, said at a news conference Monday. “Not a day goes by that I am not haunted by what happened to Ayla. For seven years I’ve asked myself who would want to hurt such an innocent little girl.”The new civil suit alleges that Justin DiPietro, the girl’s father, was at fault for her death and aims to determine where, why and how Ayla died, Trista Reynolds’ attorney, William Childs, said Monday.Ayla, who was 20 months old, was last seen in December 2011 while staying with DiPietro.DiPietro reported her missing on Dec. 17, 2011, and told police that he put the toddler to bed and found her missing the next morning.Ayla’s blood was found in the basement, the Maine State Police said.“Investigators have ruled out any possibility that Ayla left the house on her own or that she was abducted,” state police said, adding that the “adults who were in the home are withholding information. Police believe that Ayla is probably dead.”In 2017 a court order declared Ayla died on or around Dec. 17, 2011.“I wonder if this is haunting you, Justin,” Trista Reynolds said at Monday’s news conference. “If you see her blue eyes when you close your eyes at night.”The wrongful death complaint, filed Nov. 30 in Portland, seeks monetary damages.Trista Reynolds “demands judgment and damages against Justin DiPietro,” the complaint says, alleging she “suffered damages as a result of Ayla’s wrongful death, including but not limited to professional fees and expenses that were required to petition the Probate Court for a presumption of death order; emotional distress; loss of comfort society and companionship; and other pecuniary injuries.”But the suit — which claims one count of wrongful death and one count of conscious pain and suffering — is mostly “looking for the truth,” Childs said.“Wherever you are, one day you will have to face me and tell me the truth about what really happened to Ayla,” Trista Reynolds said, holding DiPietro’s photo. “I won’t stop fighting for justice.”Trista Reynolds’ family is looking for anyone who has seen DiPietro in the past year.Childs said an official recently tried to serve DiPietro with a summons but was unable to find him.ABC News was unable to reach DiPietro for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

HFL building becomes ‘cyber centre’

first_imgWilliam Hague has announced that the old History Faculty Library will host the govern-ment’s Ê»Global Centre for Cyber Security Capacity.The “cyber centre” will receive a £1 million grant from the Government. The announcement comes after the 2011 National Security Strategy rated cyber-attacks as a threat as serious as international terrorism.Hague, the UK’s Foreign Secretary, stated that the centre “will coordinate global work on cyber threats and cyber policies which will help protect the UK’s security” and “be a beacon of expertise and put the UK at the forefront of cyber policy development.”The “cyber-centre” will be based in the building of the Indian Institute on Broad Street, which to housed the History Faculty Library until it was moved to the Radcliffe Camera in September 2012. The move was controversial for the lack of consultation with students.Hague was a student at Magdalen in the 1980s, President of the Oxford Union in Michelmas 1981, and President of the Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) in Hilary of the same year.The centre will be part of the Martin School, which works to “address the most pressing global challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.” It was founded in 2005 with a $100 million donation from philanthropist James Martin.According to Sadie Creese, Head of the new cyber centre, the research they will conduct will define global priorities for cyber security. The research conducted will be shared with governments, communities, and organisations,, to inform their own cybersecurity strategies.Yet a third-year Keble historian commented, “This all sounds like a bit of a gimmick by the government, especially as the G8 conference is being hosted in London right now. Hague didn’t even come to Oxford to open the centre.”Nicholas Crossland, a first-year Philosophy and Theology student, commented, “It is looking increasingly as though tomorrow’s warfare will be predominantly fought on computer screens…it makes perfect sense to make investments in technology, brains and innovation in this field a priority.”Walid Haddad, a third year history and politics student at St. Hugh’s, stated that “The move of the HFL to the Radcliffe Camera hasn’t been as apocalyptic as was originally predicted.”Haddad went on to remark that, “If the University has a few square feet of extra space on Broad Street left over from the move, why shouldnÊ»t they seek to fill the vacancy with money from Whitehall?”last_img read more

Panama: Officials seize about eight tons of cocaine

first_imgBy Dialogo September 29, 2010 The government knows who the traffickers are, they just act dumb. In order to change this the legislative as well as the judicial authorities have to change their way of thinking. Brazil: Police confiscate 200 kilograms of marijuana BOGOTÁ, Colombia – The Colombian military arrested three and seized 136 kilograms (299 pounds) of cocaine on a boat in the Caribbean Sea, officials said. The narcotic was hidden underneath benches on the ship “La Gracia de Dios II,” which was intercepted 40 miles offshore from the city of Cartagena during a joint operation by the navy, air force and the counter-narcotics police. The cocaine had a street value of US$3.5 million, officials said, according to the Colombian news website El Colombiano.com. GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – An enterprise that allegedly smuggled narcotics and cash among Guatemala, Nicaragua and Panama through the collaboration of attorneys, police officers and public officials has been dismantled, Guatemalan officials said. “So far we have captured 32 people out of a total of 45 who have been identified as members of this group,” a spokesperson for the Guatemalan Attorney General’s Office said during a media conference, according to EFE. The 13 being sought are prosecutors or police officers, the spokesperson added. The suspects are facing drug trafficking, money laundering, criminal conspiracy, murder and obstruction of justice charges, officials said. José Alejandro Véliz Domínguez, the suspected leader of the syndicate, allegedly paid US$400 to those who smuggled cash to Panama where it would be laundered in the country’s banks, investigators said. The smugglers then allegedly went to Nicaragua, where they would pick up shipments of narcotics bound for Guatemala. The criminal organization was dismantled after an eight-month investigation that included wiretaps, surveillance, scrutiny of bank documents and the searching of 70 residences, according to Guatemala’s Attorney General’s Office. PANAMA CITY, Panama – Authorities seized about eight tons of cocaine during a 24-hour period. The National Aeronaval Service (Senan) found about five tons of the narcotic near the Belén River a day after discovering three tons of cocaine hidden along the Caribbean coast, a Senan spokesman said. “[The] 4,926 packets of cocaine were seized at the mouth of the Belén River [near the port city of] Colón, but there are no detainees,” Vladimir Rodríguez said, according to EFE. The confiscations, which were made based on a tip by the Colombian military that spotted a suspicious vessel, mark the biggest narcotics seizures in the country’s history and raised the amount of narcotics seized nationally this year to 80 tons. “Senan alone has seized 19 tons of drugs with the last quarter of 2010 still to come, and has already exceeded the 17 tons confiscated last year,” Rodríguez said, according to EFE. The cocaine was taken to the Vasco Núñez de Balboa aeronaval base.
