In this house in the suburbs of Antwerp, weathering steel lamellae are in command. Inside as well as outside they define the spaces, they mark out the boundaries where needed and open again when suited. They glow in the rusty evening sun and give a twinkling show of shadows. They embrace and protect the environment of the residents of this extraordinary house. You can feel them everywhere.Save this picture!© Luc RoymansThe concept of this house is based on the use of the Corten steel lamellae. It’s not only used to design the building, but it also shapes the landscape and defines the interior.Save this picture!© Luc RoymansA far-reaching detailing was needed to enable the use of the lamellae as cladding (welded on a perforated plate), as the gate of the garage, as the single lamellae around the garden (fixed on a invisible special structure), as the rusty floor around the ginkgo tree (chips from the waste of the perforated plates).Note: This project was originally published on 3 November, 2014Save this picture!© Luc RoymansProject gallerySee allShow lessFunen Blok K – Verdana / NL ArchitectsSelected ProjectsEcheñique 46 Building / Talhouk + Arquitectos AsociadosSelected Projects Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeDMOA ArchitectenOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKontichIcebergHousesBelgiumPublished on April 28, 2019Cite: “The Corten House / DMOA Architecten ” 28 Apr 2019.

A growing family refurbishes and extends their Victorian dwelling and coach house into a modern, light-filled family home. The budget demanded that a principle of practicality be applied to which period features to retain or modernise. One enters the house through the newly reinstated coach house doorway. By blocking the previous main door – now an external wood store – and with new sash windows, a clarity is brought to the previously confused street elevation. From the hallway, views through the existing house reveal the new airy open kitchen-dining space and the freshly landscaped garden beyond. By removing the wall dividing the dwelling and its adjoining coach house, the latter was amalgamated into the building’s main body, allowing for the reconfigured spaces to be as generous as the family requires. Towards the rear, large windows and roof-lights flood the heart of the house with natural light, with sliding-folding doors and a wide slot window in the kitchen further extending the internal spaces into the garden.Save this picture!© Salt productionsWhile being mostly finished to a modern style, existing features were retained where practical. Original floor boards were re-oiled and placed atop new under floor heating; at once efficiently adapting the house to modern standards, while establishing a dialogue with the building’s history. The extensive use of glass is continued into the upper floors with large picture windows bathing the bedrooms in light and framing views to the handsome garden. New roof-lights are designed to give maximum headroom in the loft, and internally, the frosted glass of the first floor ensuite allows daylight to penetrate further; indeed every bathroom benefits from some form of natural light. A new staircase leads to the luxurious master bedroom within a full width, zinc-clad dormer.Save this picture!© Salt productionsPerhaps the most remarkable aspect of this project was to create such attractive, generous, and light-filled spaces within a restricted budget. This was achievable thanks to a strong working relationship between the client and the design team; all working together to develop simple and elegant responses to a clear brief.Save this picture!© Salt productionsProject gallerySee allShow lessFrom Concrete to Paper: Tadao Ando’s Recent Works Displayed in New MonographArticles16 Ephemeral Installations Designed by Mexican ArchitectsArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Photographs CopyAbout this officeStudio 30 ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionUnited KingdomPublished on May 04, 2019Cite: “The Coach House / Studio 30 Architects” 04 May 2019.

first_imgFrederick DouglassThe following excerpts are from the powerful speech entitled “What to the slave is 4th of July,” made by Frederick Douglass, the great African-American abolitionist who escaped from slavery, at an independence day rally in Rochester, N.Y., July 5, 1852. In light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling dismantling Sections 4 and 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, Douglass’s powerful words still ring true today. Note: Douglass uses words like “manhood” and “men” to refer to all enslaved Africans in keeping with terminology used in his day.Fellow citizens, pardon me, allow me to ask, why am I called upon to speak here today? What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us? And am I, therefore, called upon to bring our humble offering to the national altar, and to confess the benefits and express devout gratitude for the blessings resulting from your independence to us?Would to God, both for your sakes and ours, that an affirmative answer could be truthfully returned to these questions, then would my task be light, and my burden easy and delightful. For who is there so cold that a nation’s sympathy could not warm him? Who so obdurate and dead to the claims of gratitude that would not thankfully acknowledge such priceless benefits? Who so stolid and selfish that would not give his voice to swell the hallelujahs of a nation’s jubilee, when the chains of servitude had been torn from his limbs? I am not that man. In a case like that the dumb might eloquently speak and the “lame man leap as an hart.”But such is not the state of the case. I say it with a sad sense of the disparity between us. I am not included within the pale of this glorious anniversary! Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us. The blessings in which you, this day, rejoice are not enjoyed in common. The rich inheritance of justice, liberty, prosperity, and independence bequeathed by your fathers is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought light and healing to you has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn. To drag a man in fetters into the grand illuminated temple of liberty, and call upon him to join you in joyous anthems, were inhuman mockery and sacrilegious irony. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me by asking me to speak today? If so, there is a parallel to your conduct. And let me warn that it is dangerous to copy the example of a nation whose crimes, towering up to heaven, were thrown down by the breath of the Almighty, burying that nation in irrevocable ruin! I can today take up the plaintive lament of a peeled and woe-smitten people.Fellow citizens, above your national, tumultuous joy, I hear the mournful wail of millions! Whose chains, heavy and grievous yesterday, are today rendered more intolerable by the jubilee shouts that reach them. If I do forget, if I do not faithfully remember those bleeding children of sorrow this day, “may my right hand cleave to the roof of my mouth”! To forget them, to pass lightly over their wrongs, and to chime in with the popular theme would be treason most scandalous and shocking, and would make me a reproach before God and the world.My subject, then fellow citizens, is American slavery. I shall see this day and its popular characteristics from the slave’s point of view. Standing there identified with the American bondman, making his wrongs mine. I do not hesitate to declare with all my soul that the character and conduct of this nation never looked blacker to me than on this Fourth of July!Whether we turn to the declarations of the past or to the professions of the present, the conduct of the nation seems equally hideous and revolting. America is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future. Standing with God and the crushed and bleeding slave on this occasion, I will, in the name of humanity which is outraged, in the name of liberty which is fettered, in the name of the Constitution and the Bible which are disregarded and trampled upon, dare to call in question and to denounce, with all the emphasis I can command, everything that serves to perpetuate slavery — the great sin and shame of America! I will not equivocate, I will not excuse; I will use the severest language I can command; and yet not one word shall escape me that any man, whose judgment is not blinded by prejudice, shall not confess to be right and just.For the present, it is enough to affirm the equal manhood of the Negro race. Is it not as astonishing that, while we are plowing, planting, and reaping, using all kinds of mechanical tools, erecting houses, constructing bridges, building ships, working in metals of brass, iron, copper, and secretaries, having among us lawyers, doctors, ministers, poets, authors, editors, orators, and teachers; and that, while we are engaged in all manner of enterprises common to other men, digging gold in California, capturing the whale in the Pacific, feeding sheep and cattle on the hillside, living, moving, acting, thinking, planning, living in families as husbands, wives, and children, and above all, confessing and worshiping the Christian’s God, and looking hopefully for life and immortality beyond the grave, we are called upon to prove that we are men!What, am I to argue that it is wrong to make men brutes, to rob them of their liberty, to work them without wages, to keep them ignorant of their relations to their fellow men, to beat them with sticks, to flay their flesh with the lash, to load their limbs with irons, to hunt them with dogs, to sell them at auction, to sunder their families, to knock out their teeth, to burn their flesh, to starve them into obedience and submission to their masters? Must I argue that a system thus marked with blood, and stained with pollution, is wrong? No! I will not. I have better employment for my time and strength than such arguments would imply.What, to the American slave, is your Fourth of July?I answer: a day that reveals to him, more than all other days in the year, the gross injustice and cruelty to which he is the constant victim. To him, your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty, an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your denunciation of tyrants, brass-fronted impudence; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mockery; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are, to Him, mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy; a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages. There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of the United States at this very hour.Go where you may, search where you will, roam through all the monarchies and despotisms — of the Old World, travel through South America, search out every abuse, and when you have found the last, lay your facts by the side of the everyday practices of this nation, and you will say with me that, for revolting barbarity and shameless hypocrisy, America reigns without a rival.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

This cast all tells a heartbreaking story and they all did it beautifully.Will Win: “Three Billboards”.  I think this movie will continue to grow momentum into the Oscars by winning but look for “Get Out” to maybe pull it out in the recent political times we are in. Should Win: Peter Dinklage. Season after season Peter Dinklage continues to amaze people on his acting ability. This last season is no different as he gave another great performance as Tyrion Lannister.Will Win: Sterling K. Brown. The show “This is Us” has been winning plenty of awards and after winning an Emmy for his role in the show it seems like the clear choice to win the SAG award as well.

She also just won the Golden Globe so look for her to continue her momentum into the Oscars.Will Win: Frances McDorman. Should Win: “Stranger Things”. This show is amazing! It has a fantastic cast and great writing. Season two is just as great as the first and is deserving of this award.Will Win: “The Handmaid’s Tale”.

This show has been climbing high and will continue to do so with anotherwin.The SAG awards will take place at 7 p.m. Sunday on TBS. Should Win: James Franco. His performance in “The Disaster Artist” was hilarious and just down right amazing. But with the recent sexual misconduct allegations he will most likely not be getting the award even after his win and the Golden Globes.Will Win: Gary Oldman. After winning a Golden Globe and all the talk about his performance, Gary Oldman is the clear choice to win this award for his performance of Winston Churchill.

first_img Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists September 3, 2018 – Updated on September 7, 2018 China: RSF denounces the exclusion of a Japanese journalist from diplomatic meeting Help by sharing this information A reporter, sent to Beijing by Japanese conservative daily newspaper Sankei Shimbun on August 29th to cover the meeting between the Foreign Ministries of China and Japan, was suddenly declared persona non grata without given a precise reason at the request expressed by Chinese Minister Wang Yi. The reporter’s name was not disclosed. In response, other Japanese journalists who came to cover the meeting boycotted the event.”This arbitrary decision once again demonstrates how little Beijing is doing about press freedom,” said Cédric Alviani, Director of the RSF East Asia Office. “This sidelining appears even more absurd as the journalist was accredited to follow the delegation and that the Chinese authorities had granted him a visa.”In its annual report published in February, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China (FCCC) described the authorities’ growing relentlessness in preventing the foreign press from doing its job. In 2017, two photojournalists from the South Korean delegation were beaten by plainclothes agents while covering President Moon’s official visit to Beijing.Last week, the head correspondent of Buzzfeed News in China saw her visa renewal refused, as did a Swedish journalist in 2016, a correspondent of French magazine L’Obs in 2015, and a New York Times reporter in 2013.China ranks 176th out of 180 countries in the 2018 RSF World Press Freedom Index and has more than 50 imprisoned journalists.

These involve both qualified therapists and artists running more informal events.One of the more recent initiatives is the weekly art therapy sessions being run by art therapist Sheila Richardson, who has over more than 20 years experience of working with children and adolescents.“Art therapy is a form of therapy that uses art materials to gain insight and awareness to facilitate change and growth. It is perfect for young people as it provides a gentle and safe way for them to explore their feelings verbally and  non-verbally”, she explained.Music is also helping children cope with illness and to recover at the Children’s Ark and the wards have been filled with the sounds of Music Generation Limerick, whose Peter Hannigan and Emma Langford are now regular performers in the Ark.

Stay tuned to the weather forecast.- Remember to think of those who may be more at risk from the effects of heat.- If you’re planning to travel, check the forecast at your destination.- Learn how to keep cool and safe at home HSE guidanceStay out of the heat- Keep out of the sun between 11am and 3pm- If you have to go out in the heat, walk in the shade, apply sunscreen with both UVA and UVB protection- Avoid extreme physical exertion. If you can’t avoid strenuous outdoor activity, like sport, DIY or gardening, keep it for cooler parts of the day, like early morning or evening- Wear light, loose-fitting cotton clothes and a hat to shade face, neck and ears- Wear wrap around sun glasses with UV protection- Wear sun protection factor: factor 30 or over with a 4 or 5 Star UVA rating on any areas that cannot be covered by clothing and a hat- Young children, especially babies, and the elderly are more susceptible to sun damage so be extra careful.Cool yourself down- Drink plenty of cold drinks, and avoid excess alcohol, caffeine and hot drinks- Eat cold foods, particularly salads and fruit with a high water content- Take a cool shower, bath or body wash- Sprinkle water over the skin or clothing, or keep a damp cloth on the back of your neck.Keep your environment cool- Keep your living space cool. This is especially important for infants, the elderly or those with chronic health conditions or those who can’t look after themselves- Keep windows that are exposed to the sun closed during the day, and open windows at night when the temperature has dropped- Close curtains that receive morning or afternoon sun- Turn off non-essential lights and electrical equipment – they generate heat- Keep plants and bowls of water in the house as evaporation helps cool the air- If possible, move into a cooler room, especially for sleeping- Electric fans can help but only if temperature is below 35C.Look out for others- Keep an eye on isolated, elderly, ill or very young people and make sure they are able to keep cool- Ensure that babies, children or elderly people are not left alone in stationary cars- Check on elderly or sick neighbours, family or friends every day during a heat wave- Be alert and call a doctor or social services if someone is unwell or further help is needed.Advice on medicines- Many prescription medicines can reduce your tolerance of heat. You should keep taking your medicines, but take extra care to keep cool.- Danger symptoms to watch out for in hot weather include: feeling faint and dizzy, short of breath, vomiting or increasing confusion. Take immediate action if – danger symptoms of heatstroke are present: Cool down as quickly as possible. However do not take aspirin or paracetamol – this can make you worse. Do however carry on taking all other prescribed medicines. Seek further advice from a doctor, or ring 999 if the person has collapsed.- Keep medicines below 25°C or in the refrigerator (read the storage instructions on the packaging)- Seek medical advice if you are suffering from a chronic medical condition or taking multiple medications.If you or others feel unwell- Try to get help if you feel dizzy, weak, anxious or have intense thirst and headache; move to a cool place as soon as possible and measure your body temperature- Drink some water or fruit juice to rehydrate- Rest immediately in a cool place if you have painful muscular cramps (particularly in the legs, arms or abdomen, in many cases after sustained exercise during very hot weather)- Drink oral rehydration solutions containing electrolytes- Seek medical attention as needed if heat cramps last more than one hour- Consult your doctor if you feel unusual symptoms or if symptoms persist.Seek advice if you have any concerns- Contact your doctor or a pharmacist if you are worried about your health during a heat wave, especially if you are taking medication, if you feel unwell or have any unusual symptoms- Watch for cramp in your arms, legs or stomach, feelings of mild confusion, weakness or problems sleeping- If you have these symptoms, rest for several hours, keep cool and drink water or fruit juice. Seek medical advice if they get worse or don’t go away.If you suspect someone has heatstroke- Remember, heatstroke can kill. It can develop very suddenly, and rapidly lead to unconsciousness. If you suspect someone has heatstroke, call 999 immediately.- While waiting for the ambulance, move the person somewhere cooler if possible, increase ventilation by opening windows or using a fan and cool the affected person as quickly as possibly by loosening their clothes, sprinkling them with cold water or wrapping them in a damp sheet. If they are conscious, give them water or fruit juice to drink.- DO NOT give them aspirin or paracetamol.Dr Patrick Ormond, Consultant Dermatologist at St. James’s Hospital also outlined the following tips on being sun safe:-  Seek Shade: UV rays are the most intense between 11am and 3-4pm, so limit sun exposure during this time.-  Cover up:  Wear loose long-sleeved shirts and long pants.  95% of UV rays are blocked by cotton.  Wear a wide brimmed hat that shades the head, neck, ears and face.-  Wraparound sunglasses:  Wear sunglasses that block as close to 100% UVA and UVB as possible.  Sunglasses are just as important for children as they are for adults and can prevent cataracts in later life.-  Wear sunscreen: Use a ‘broad-spectrum’ sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB; – SPF minimum 30 (protects against UVB) and look for these signs (symbols) for UVA protection.  Apply at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun and reapply every two hours.  The amount of sunscreen that’s needed to cover the body of an average adult is around six full teaspoons of lotion.  It is important to know that sunscreen use alone is not adequate protection against UV rays; you need to be aware of your skin type and how strong the UV index is. Babies should be kept of direct sunlight. People who are at high risk of skin cancer should use SPF 50.-  Know your moles: Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer.  over 1,000 people are diagnosed with malignant melanoma, and over 11,100 people are diagnosed with other forms of skin cancer each year in Ireland.  It is the third most common cancer diagnosed in 15 – 44 year age group.  Dr Ormond stressed that “when caught early, this type of cancer can be treated effectively.  However, if left untreated, melanoma can spread to other parts of the body.  There are many factors that increase the risk of someone developing melanoma.  These include a person with many abnormal moles, or a large number of moles – more than 50; fair complexion (fair skin, blue eyes, red/blonde hair); having had a previous melanoma or other non-melanoma skin cancer; immunosuppression (anyone who for example has had a transplant or is on immunosuppressive medication); anyone who has had a family history of melanoma; anyone with a history of childhood sunburn or anyone who has used a sunbed.” Homepage BannerNewslast_img read more
