The project seeks to develop a fresh and novel concept for a private single-family residence in the context of a major public beach on the urban edge of San Juan. Altering this neighborhood’s traditional relationship with the ocean – one of virtual negation, the design reverts this tendency by celebrating the views to the sea and making it the focus of the important living spaces.Save this picture!© José Fernando Vázquez PérezRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaBetonCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD20Panels / Prefabricated AssembliesULMA Architectural SolutionsMIS Facade PanelThe initial concern – public vs. private = site vs. program – led to reconsider the typical site relationship by elevating the living spaces on two (2) levels above the ground and establishing a new ‘horizon’ with the clear intention of buffering – yet integrating – the intensely frequented beach. At the same time, this (3m) rise safeguards from a possible hurricane/storm surge – approximately every decade.Save this picture!© José Fernando Vázquez PérezA simple, direct design scheme follows a coherent programmatic allocation of the habitable spaces – living and resting areas focusing on the ocean, service and less hierarchical spaces on the opposite side, with circulation in the center.

Visually, they are integrated by two (2) double height spaces (permit diagonal views to the ocean and pool) and the central core. This core or ‘inner spine’ is unified by the board-formed concrete wall (from basement to roof), articulated with three (3) flights of the wood/glass stair (+ steel beam) and culminated on the East, West and roof with skylights and indirect natural light slits. On the West façade and part of the roof, above the entrance vestibule, this circulation ‘strip’ is further expressed with a sculpted, cast-in-place, terracotta-tinted, concrete wall – textured/rough exterior and smooth interior.Save this picture!© José Fernando Vázquez PérezAddressing sustainability, the house features a linear photovoltaic-paneled pergola generating energy for most domestic consumption (except air conditioning) as well as providing shade and protection for the a/c compressors. Hot water is supplied by a vaccum tube solar heater. Rainwater is retained and stored in a ground-level cistern, supplying water for landscaping and hose bibs, as well as replenishing pool evaporation.Save this picture!© José Fernando Vázquez PérezProject gallerySee allShow less”Building Intelligence Project” Think TankArticlesAbu Dhabi International Airport / KPFArticles Share Casa Mar / Coleman-Davis Pagan Arquitectos “COPY” CopyAbout this officeColeman-Davis Pagán ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan JuanHousesUnited StatesPublished on February 09, 2012Cite: “Casa Mar / Coleman-Davis Pagan Arquitectos” 09 Feb 2012.

USDA: Farm Households Report Working off the Farm to Provide Greater, More Stable Income Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA: Farm Households Report Working off the Farm to Provide Greater, More… SHARE SHARE By USDA Communications – Jun 23, 2020 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Nearly half of all family farm operators and their spouses reported having a job off the farm in 2018.The majority of households, regardless of farm size, report that they work off the farm because it is more lucrative than farm work, provides more reliable income, and may offer health and retirement benefits.Households had the option to report more than one reason for working off the farm.Among small family farms—those with annual gross cash farm income (GCFI) under $350,000—about 88 percent of these households reported working off the farm because it was more reliable and 75 percent because it was more lucrative.By comparison, among large-scale farm households—those with GCFI of $1 million or more—about 72 percent reported working off the farm because it was more reliable and 51 percent because it was more lucrative.In addition, about 40 percent of all principal operators or their spouses who work off the farm listed farm-related financial stress, such as low commodity prices or low farm revenue, as a reason for having a job off the farm.This chart appears in the March 2020 Amber Waves article, “Family Farm Households Reap Benefits in Working Off the Farm.” Previous articleThe Chances of Seeing More Rain This Week and Corn Drops Again on the HAT Tuesday PodcastNext articleFarm Groups Launch Free Stress Management Course USDA Communications

In our opinion, though there is pandemic situation, but ultimately life has to go and the career of the students cannot be put on peril for long and full academic year cannot be wasted”, said a Supreme Court bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai and Krishna Murari on August 17The review petitions filed against the order were also dismissed later.Next Story

Russians given access to e-learning advancesOn 2 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Russian employees and the country’s unemployed are to be given access toonline learning following a deal between learning technology providerClick2learn and the Russian system integration specialists CSS. The two companies will work with global corporations based in Russia,progressive Russian companies and government agencies in the country to providetraining for those out of work. Ruben Agababyan, general manager at CSS, said, “The Russian market fore-learning is huge and virtually untapped. During 70 years of communism,Western business strategies and practices, which are now widely accepted, didnot apply to the Soviet way of doing business. “We have now entered a new era in which we can take advantage ofcutting edge technologies that have evolved in Western Europe and the US. WithClick2learn on board, we have been able to leapfrog previous trainingtechnologies to provide Russian-based companies with a sophisticated andmarket-leading e-learning solution.” While senior management in the multinational companies speak English andhave been able to use e-learning courses developed in the West, the vastproportion of Russian employees do not speak English and have not had access toe-learning. CSS has localised content and translated courses to widen access. Agababyansaid that, in addition, CSS intended to be a full solution provider offeringinstallation, consultancy and development services. Stephen Bennett, Click2learn’s vice-president for Europe, said, “Thereason we have extended to Russia is because, as a nation, it is incrediblyhungry to learn. “Since the fall of communism much of the education and furthereducation infrastructure has crumbled and people are desperate to get theirhands on anything that can improve their capability to find employment. “Russia is such a huge country that technology can play a veryimportant role. Virtual classrooms, e-learning, the whole blended learningexperience is the most cost effective way of providing that education.” www.click2learn.comBy Lisa Bratby Previous Article Next Article

Leicestershire-based The Vegan Cakery has won a prestigious award at the Vegfest UK Festival.It scooped Best Vegan Bakery at the event held on 10 October at London Olympia.The artisan bakery, founded in 2012 by Michelle Orme, previously won Best Vegan Company at the 2013 UK Vegan Awards.Orme produces more than 200 vegan cakes, pastries and other treats, including her trademarked Lemon V’urd and mostly trades online. She also supplies a range of outlets including Café Mbriki, a Greek-Cypriot café in Leicester.She makes all her products by hand and does not take a wage from the business, donating as much as possible to animal causes.Orme said: “When I started the business, there were two aims – to show vegan cake can be every bit as good as, and actually better than, ‘regular’ products with eggs, dairy and other animal-derived ingredients, and to also raise as much as possible for animal charities and sanctuaries. It’s really heart-warming to know so many people share my ethics as well as enjoying my products.”
It’s safe to say that fans of the Grateful Dead are eagerly awaiting the release of Long Strange Trip, the new Grateful Dead documentary directed by Amir Bar-Lev and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. The documentary will be formally released via Amazon Prime on June 2nd, with a number of live screenings ahead of the streaming release at movie theaters across the United States and iconic venues, such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre and The Capitol Theatre, on May 25th. However, even though the formal debut of the movie is just around the corner, fans are still devouring up the little tastes of the film that have been slowly being released over the past few weeks.Watch The Trailer For The New ‘Long Strange Trip’ Grateful Dead DocumentaryToday, a new clip from Long Strange Trip was released, and it’s one of the best yet. The clip, which was premiered on Consequence of Sound, outlines the various subcultures within the vast category that is Deadheads, and it’s an illuminating look at the diverse fanbase that congregated around the Grateful Dead. At just over a minute long, the clip likens the Dead’s fan base to a “mandala,” then describes how the various groups fit together, referencing Phil Zone and Jerry Side folks, spinners, Wharf Rats, tapers, and more—plus how their relationship with the music changed based on which group they fit into. Most interestingly, the clip talks about the “Deaf Zone,” where the hearing impaired would gather holding balloons to feel the music and watch the sign language interpreters convey the lyrics of the music. You can watch the clip for yourself below, and get excited for when Amir Bar-Lev’s Long Strange Trip comes to a theater or venue near you (or, for those not close to one of the upcoming screening, a couch near you).
