The concrete elements have a rippled surface from the osb panels positioned in the formwork at the time of casting and generate the porches of the house. Inside, the same material was used in the kitchen wall and parapet of the staircase.Save this picture!© Alberto SingagliaSave this picture!© Alberto SingagliaThe living area floor is a gray micro-Terrazzo in continuity with the colours of the house. The wooden staircase is illuminated by a large skylight placed above it.  The windows are positioned to frame the countryside around the house.Save this picture!© Alberto SingagliaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alberto SingagliaThe entrance is located on the east side, and on the ground floor there are the living area, the kitchen, a pantry in the under stairs, a bathroom, and the boiler room. Moving up, on the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms with a bathroom and a master bedroom with a private bathroom. Save this picture!© Alberto SingagliaThe house is entirely characterized by the gray color, from the colour of the walls, echoed by the concrete elements with “osb” finish to the external floor, also in concrete. The aluminum shutters also match these tones. Only the roof is marked by a darker color. Inside, the floor recalls the tone of the external materials, while the furniture blend with the white surfaces of the walls.Save this picture!© Alberto SingagliaProject gallerySee allShow lessIt Takes a Village: Collective Led Projects from Around the WorldArticlesLet There be Light! 12 Projects that Show the Impact Lighting can Make to an Interio…Articles Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeDidonè Comacchio ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBreganzeOn FacebookItalyPublished on May 30, 2021Cite: “House ER / Didonè Comacchio Architects” 30 May 2021.

EU Adds 3 Non-EU Yards to Approved List of Recycling Facilities

first_imgThe European Commission has added six new yards to its list of approved ship recycling facilities.For the first time, three yards located outside the EU have been included in the list, those being Izmir-based Leyal Gemi Söküm Sanayi ve Tícaret Ltd and Leyal Demtaș Gemi Söküm Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ș. and the U.S.-based International Shipbreaking Limited L.L.C. “We are once again proud to have achieved another major milestone in our continuous effort to offer the industry sustainable ship recycling options, both in relation to realizing significant asset values as well as with respect to safe and environmentally sound recycling operations,” Dimitri Ayvatoglu, Head Special Projects & External Affairs at LEYAL, said.Finland-based Turku Repair Yard also made it to the list together with Italy’s San Giorgio del Porto S.p.A. and Denmark’s  Modern American Recycling Services Europe. From December 31 2018, the EU Ship Recycling Regulation requires all large sea-going vessels sailing under an EU Member State flag to use an approved ship recycling facility included in the European List. European ship owners own 35% of the world fleet. A large percentage of these is being dismantled on beaches in South Asia, under conditions harmful to workers’ health and the environment.With the adoption of the updated List, the European Commission aims to ensure that ships are recycled in facilities that are safe for workers and environmentally sound.“The EU is committed to reducing the impact of EU shipping industry on the environment, including through better protection of environment and workers in ship recycling. The inclusion of the first yards located outside the EU is a major milestone and the recognition of very significant efforts and resources dedicated by the concerned yards towards this goal. The updated List will increase the recycling capacity of the European List, and give European ship owners a wider range of recycling options,” EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu Vella said.last_img read more

David Seymour introduces End of Life Choice Bill

first_img3News 14 October 2015A Bill legalising assisted dying will be introduced into the Member’s ballot by ACT leader David Seymour today.Mr Seymour says the End of Life Choice Bill is a response to the growing call for euthanasia which has gained prominence since the high-profile case of lawyer Lecretia Seales who spent her dying moments fighting for the right.It also coincides with a petition with 8975 signatures which will be presented to the Health select committee this morning.But Family First believes the Bill is premature and should wait until the inquiry he supported was completed.“Rather than a flawed euthanasia Bill which will contain the same pitfalls as Maryan Street’s earlier proposed Bill, it makes absolute sense to debate euthanasia within the wider context of the premature ending of one’s life,” national director Bob McCoskrie says.“Voluntary euthanasia has the allure of being an enlightened and compassionate response to the plight of the suffering, but its practical operation is fraught with risks and there are slippery slopes that are indeed very slippery.”A person eligible for assisted dying would:Be aged 18 or over;Suffer from a terminal illness likely to end their life within six months or have a grievous and irremediable medical condition;Be in an advanced state of irreversible decline in capability;Experience intolerable suffering;Be able to understand the nature and consequences of assisted dying.The legal process:Two medical practitioners need to be satisfied that the person meets the criteria;The person will also have to be assessed by a mental health specialist;A Support and Consultation for End of Life New Zealand Group (SCENZ) will be set up – it will maintain a list of doctors, specialists and pharmacists willing to participate in assisted dying;Medical practitioners who conscientiously object to assisted dying must refer people to SCENZ.http://www.3news.co.nz/nznews/david-seymour-introduces-end-of-life-choice-bill-2015101409#axzz3oTzKN7Lglast_img read more

Solskjaer urges Manchester United to keep Aston Villa forward Grealish in check

first_imgMANCHESTER: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer feels his team has to be careful about Jack Grealish when they take on Aston Villa on Thursday in their next English Premier League encounter. Grealish is one of United’s targets in this summer’s transfer window and the Villa captain scored a sumptuous goal in the 2-2 draw at Old Trafford in December.”Well I think in the last game obviously they caused us some problems, both Grealish off the left and El Ghazi off the right. He (Grealish) caused us problems, he scored a fantastic goal, so there’s been lots said and talked about him and we need to be aware of him. “Whoever is close to him, if he’s off the left, or he’s in the middle, on the right, what he does is attract players to him and creates space for others. There’s not just one player in that Villa team, there’s many of them,” Solskjaer said ahead of the match as quoted by Manchester United’s official website, manutd.com. If United don’t lose at Villa Park, it will extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to 17 matches, dating back to January. “If we win every single one of them, we are in the top four. We cannot rely on help from anyone else, we just have to do it ourselves. That’s to grow as a team and know that going into next season we can put a different challenge to other teams in front of us,” the manager said of the club’s top-four ambitions. “The last 16 games unbeaten gives us more confidence, but 16 games is nowhere near where a Manchester United team should strove towards. We can still go many games unbeaten if we concentrate on the right things, if we focus on the next one, the next one, the next one and then suddenly you’re stood there with 16. Hopefully that can continue,” he added. Asked if attacking midfielder Bruno Fernandes is making his team-mates better players since joining the club, Solskjaer said: “I think it’s gone both ways. I think Bruno has come into the club and seen how many good players there are at Man United. We’ve helped him show his attributes as well.

Liberia’s ECOWAS Parliamentarians Highlight Progress, Challenges

first_imgLiberia’s ECOWAS Parliament delegation.In December Country ReportLiberian legislators at the ECOWAS Parliament have presented their Country Report,  on progress and challenges the country faced since its last report in May of this year.Presentation of country reports at the ongoing Second Ordinary Session of the Fourth Legislature by the various lawmakers from the 15 ECOWAS countries  is part of routine legislative activities at the level of the regional parliamentarian body.A release from the Liberian Embassy in Abuja says the December Country Report, presented yesterday covered the political and security situation in Liberia, the status of the implementation of the ECOWAS Community Levy, the ratification of community protocols and conventions, and the implementation of ECOWAS community programs.The Country Report also touched on Liberia’s status on the implementation of ECOWAS infrastructural and transportation policies and programs, the status of the ECOWAS macroeconomic program as it relates to the level of achievement of convergence criteria and sensitization activities carried out by parliamentarians.Montserrado County Representative Edwin M. Snowe, Jr. read the Country Report on behalf of the Liberian delegation. The members of the Liberian ECOWAS Parliamentarian Delegation are Montserrado County Senator George Manneh Weah, who is the head of the delegation and Nimba County Senator Prince Yormie Johnson. Others are Representative Jefferson Karmoh of Sinoe County, who is the Third Deputy Speaker of the ECOWAS Parliament, and Representative Haja Fatta Siryon of Bomi County.On Liberia’s political situation, the Country Report says that the situation is relatively cordial despite the current electoral process: “As we may know, Liberia conducted presidential and representatives elections on 10th October, 2017. Seventy-three members of the House of Representatives were elected.”The Report adds: “…..however, in keeping with the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia, for a candidate to be declared a winner for the presidency, the candidate must obtain not less than 50 percent plus one (50%+1) of the total votes cast. Of the twenty (20) candidates for the presidency, no one candidate reached such constitutional requirement.”The Report then commented on the ongoing legal process surrounding the electoral process, disclosing that the Liberian Supreme Court is expected this week with a ruling on the status of the stay-order it placed on the process last month following a complaint from the Liberty Party, which finished third in the first round of votes.“To this end, Liberians and the world are watching the legal process to see its logical conclusion. There has been a general atmosphere of calm among the parties and citizens,” a release quotes the Country Report.Relative to the draw down of the United Nations Missions in Liberia (UNMIL) a couple of months ago, the Report explains that the Government of Liberia through its relevant institutions that are responsible for dealing with security and combating terrorism, including the National Security Agency (NSA), the Ministry of National Defense and the Liberia National Police (LNP), have been working together to maintain peace and security.On the economy, the release quotes the Report as saying that the outlook of the “Liberian economy appears gloomy premised on the outcome of the presidential election and enhancement of investments in infrastructure developments as well as the implementation of agricultural programs.”The Report then adds that economic activities are expected to improve by the end of the first half of 2018.The Liberian legislators also included in their Country Report Liberia’s continuous implementation of its regional integration commitments within the framework of the ECOWAS Single Currency Program.Other aspects covered in the Report include the Status of Implementation of the Community Texts, Ratification of the Community Protocols and Conventions, Implementation of the Community Programs and Community Levy, and Liberia’s successful hosting of ECOWAS Mid-term Statutory Meetings between May and June of this year.The Country Report concludes that Liberia continues to make considerable progress on the regional front, achieving key deliverables, according to the release.The ongoing Second Ordinary Session of the Fourth Legislature of the ECOWAS Parliament which kicked off on November 21 will end on December 9, 2017.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Mourinho: No new Utd deal, no PSG move

first_imgManchester United Mourinho not signing new Man Utd contract, but not joining PSG either Joe Wright Last updated 2 years ago 23:16 10/17/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) jose mourinho - cropped Getty Images Manchester United José Mourinho PSG Ligue 1 Premier League Benfica v Manchester United The Red Devils boss has responded to rumours suggesting that he could soon quit Old Trafford and inherit the managerial reins at Parc des Princes Jose Mourinho insists he is neither on the verge of signing a new five-year Manchester United contract nor ready to join Paris Saint-Germain.The 54-year-old signed a three-year deal with the option of a fourth when he took over at Old Trafford in May last year.Barca, Madrid & PSG 10/11 all to win Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. There has been speculation that United are ready to offer Mourinho a bumper new deal but he cast doubt on his long-term future when he told Telefoot they will not be his last club.However, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss is adamant that rumours he will sign a lengthy new contract or take over at PSG are baseless.”I think you English media have the answer for that,” he told a news conference ahead of United’s Champions League clash with Benfica. “In one day, it says I am going to sign a five-year contract, £1 billion per season. The next day you say I am leaving and I’m going to Paris Saint-Germain. The answer is exactly that.”Nothing is happening, I am not signing a new five-year contract and I am not leaving for Paris Saint-Germain. I am not leaving Manchester United. I have a contract and that’s it.”Jose Mourinho Manchester UnitedMourinho believes it is “impossible” for any manager to stay at the same club for more than a few years given the pressure in the modern game.”The future is tomorrow. I have my contract, which ends in June 2019. We are in October 2017 so I don’t know what to say,” he continued.”The only thing I said, and it’s a true interpretation of my words, that I am not going to end my career at United. How is it possible in modern football that any manager is going to last 15 or 20 years in the same club? I think [Arsene] Wenger is the last one.”I think it’s impossible for us, with everything that surrounds the job, with all the pressure that surrounds every job. I think it’s impossible to last for so long.”If, in this moment, I want to finish in two, three, four or five years, I would say yes, my ambition would be to end my career at Manchester United. “I think I’m going to be here in football for 15 years, minimum, and I think it is impossible to stay 17 years at the same club, even if you want, even if you try.”Some people try to be clever, try to be malicious, and they say many different things. But the reality is simple: I didn’t sign a new contract but I’m not thinking about leaving.”last_img read more
