Gerês house is located on a steep slope in the Caniçada Valley where there was a small house and a stream. The existing building was located in an upper level of the land eventually liable to small landslides, which determined its demolition and the relocation of the new construction. Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoThe new construction relates with the land in a very spontaneous way, taking advantage of its steep slope, of the small stream and of the privileged view over the landscape. The access to the house is made from the upper level, ensuring a full view over the lot and over the building that fits on the ground like a rock. However, it’s inside the house where the visual range allows us to (re)discover the land below, characterized by the irregular stream’s route that results in a small lake at the lower level.Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoThe building consists of two elements, a large wood volume that rests on a concrete base, which extends over the land and on the water line. The use of these two materials extends inside the house, which does not seek a conventional program, but rather large, functional and multipurpose spaces, where pleasure and work are mixed.Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoThe social space of the house assumes special relevance, materialized in a large central living room which extends to the outside through a large terrace. The kitchen and services are arranged on the same floor of the living room and the most intimate program comes at a second level, relating with the first one in the form of a mezzanine.Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoOriginally published on January 22, 2016. Project gallerySee allShow lessHotel Grand Park Royal Vallarta / Lucio MuniainSelected ProjectsKtima House / Camilo Rebelo + Susana MartinsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Portugal Year:  “COPY” 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Hugo Carvalho Araújo Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs Manufacturers: Lunawood Products translation missing: CopyHouses•Vieira do Minho, Portugal Gerês House / Carvalho AraújoSave this projectSaveGerês House / Carvalho AraújoSave this picture!© Hugo Carvalho Araújo+ 19Curated by Matheus Pereira Sharelast_img read more

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Community News Business News After years of legislative efforts, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) has successfully authored landmark legislation to expand Concurrent Enrollment.The Senate today voted overwhelmingly in favor of this historic measure that will allow thousands of low income, non-traditional high school students across California to be able to attend community college in order to get a head start.“This bill will allow students who may not be college-ready to be ready by the time they graduate,” explained Assemblymember Holden. “The latest statistics from the Department of Education show that the majority of California students are not ready for college.”“In our high-tech economy, a college degree will no longer be an option; it will be a requirement for jobs of the future. Concurrent enrollment opens doors of opportunity for students who might never have thought it possible to go to college, concluded Holden.”AB 288 creates a partnership between community college districts and high schools to allow high school students to take college-level courses at their high schools or on college campuses. The measure calls for increasing the number of college classes students can take from 11 to 15 units. It also offers opportunity for technical career classes that can potentially lead to a job. And, it provides for remedial courses and college level coursework to prepare students for college life.AB 288 has strong, bi-partisan support led by joint author, Assembly Republican Leader Kristin Olsen, of Modesto: “California is a world-wide economic leader, so we must do everything we can to ensure that our students are qualified for the jobs of our state’s ever-changing economy,” said Olsen. “By making community college courses more accessible to high schools students, we can help ignite their sense of purpose and drive that is essential in today’s fast-paced world, while improving their eligibility for a wider range of jobs early on.”AB 288 is supported by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, The California Community League, The California Chamber of Commerce, and numerous community college districts throughout California.The measure now goes back to the Assembly for concurrence on amendments.center_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Your email address will not be published.

Chautauqua County District Attorney Says Caseload Growth Continues Despite Pandemic

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) WNYNewsNow File Image.MAYVILLE – Society is slowly reopening as the COVID-19 pandemic continues and the Chautauqua County Court system, just like everything else here in the United States, is dealing with an unprecedented set of circumstances. “Everything is moving at a snails pace,” Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick Swanson said when discussing the status of the court during an interview Tuesday afternoon with WNYNewsNow. “One, we still have the restrictions that surround the ongoing pandemic, which means we have restrictions on numbers and with social distancing and making sure that people and the environment we are asking these people to come to are safe.”Swanson says that crime didn’t “cease to exist” during the pandemic despite seeing crime numbers “slow somewhat.”“People were still allegedly committing offenses, and our caseload piles continue to grow with nowhere to take those cases,” Swanson said. He says local courts will begin to operate in “some form or fashion” next week, with County Court “moving a little bit” and he expects grand jury hearings to begin in July in an effort to do “something” with alleged felony offenses that have occurred since March 15. “The problem is going to be you can’t just send summons out for 100 people to show up at their local court, or village court, right now,” Swanson said. “I don’t see that happening anytime in the near future. We’re only going to be able to handle a certain number of cases. Unfortunately, it’s frustrating, but that’s just going to have to be how we handle our business for the near future.”Swanson says that various deadlines involving the right to a speedy trial have been suspended during the pandemic. However, the prosecutor says he has instructed his staff to prioritize their caseload based on “severity and time needs” for grand jury presentation.Swanson adds that his staff will be limited in the number of cases they can present to the Grand Jury each day because witnesses will need to be screened for symptoms of sickness. He says he’ll be utilizing the Chautauqua County Legislative Chambers so that he can space out all 23 members of a Grand Jury.“Our priority, first, has got to be the safety of our grand jury, our witnesses, our police officers that are coming in,” Swanson said. “It’s gonna slow everything down, but we have what we feel is a protocol in place to properly manage these cases.”Swanson credits the work of his staff, saying that “it’s times like these (COVID-19 pandemic)” that shows him the strength of his team.Swanson says Chautauqua County was one of the first counties in New York State to conduct a virtual preliminary hearing during the pandemic. He says he believes there will be live, in-person hearings in court starting today, but the matters will only involve defendants outside of custody. Those in custody will appear in court virtually.“Some things are starting to move. We are talking about the difference between a drip and a fire hose,” Swanson said. “We are dripping right now and that’s about it. Hopefully the faucets open a little further and we can start to move things.”WNYNewsNow will continue to cover the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, putting facts over fear. last_img read more

SAILOR 900 VSAT Systems for CCCC Dredging Fleet

first_imgCobham SATCOM maritime antenna systems will be powering the digital connectivity on 16 dredging vessels that support the One Belt One Road Initiative, China’s ambitious port and infrastructure-building project.16 SAILOR 900 VSAT antenna systems, via partner Beijing Highlander Digital Technology Co. Ltd are due to be rolled out on the ships owned and operated by CCCC Dredging Company (CDC) over a period of 24 months with an option for a further six vessels.The new VSAT equipment will replace the vessels’ existing FleetBroadband communications hardware.Cobham SATCOM General Manager China, Cheng-Yu Tang said: “The dredging sector has been cautious in embracing digitalisation, but the enhanced on-board communications delivered to CCCC by the SAILOR 900 VSAT paves the way for real-time monitoring, higher precision modelling and potential for extended remote operations.”China’s dredging industry has undergone a massive overhaul over the past 20 years, resulting in a significantly expanded and more technologically advanced fleet. More than half of this capacity is owned by China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), which today operates around 40 trailing suction hoppers, 60 cutter section dredgers and almost a dozen bucket dredgers.The latest ship to join the CCCC fleet is the Tian Kun Hao, dubbed a ‘magic island-maker’ by its designer, was launched last year and is due to enter service this summer.It is the first fully domestically-built self-propelled dredger of its type in China. The 140m-long cutter section can dredge up to 6,000 cubic meters an hour from depths up to 35m and thanks to an automatic control system can be operated without any crew.last_img read more
