The original dwelling, located on one of the edges where the Bilbao urban regular grid begins to blur, is located in an elegant rationalist building designed by Hilario Imaz in the 60s. It presents a particular semi-circular floor plant opened to the outside plaza with generous windows that turn from North to South. What we propose here is an unprejudiced approach to the domestic issue where space moves away from that classic idea of succession of specialized and segregated spaces breaking the obsolete standards of serving-served, day-night and common-private. We seek to reach instead a generous and continuous space, without hierarchy or distribution, connoted with decontextualized techniques and objects, where the main thread is humour. A concept always ready for unpredictable appropriations of the space capable of satisfying the idea of domesticity of its inhabitants.Save this picture!© Luis Diaz DiazSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Luis Diaz DiazTo reach this purpose the construction is limited to the maximum, reducing the architecture to a measured and careful arrangement of objects that, due to their chromatic qualification, their distance from their original attributes or their deregulated character, act as activators of the space around them, allowing a style of open and liberating life. Accordingly, understanding that the essence of the proposal lies in that object appropriation seeking to stay away from functionalist determinations to achieve a generous and indeterminate space, it is proposed: Recycling and DIY as construction techniques through two floors: one recycled Marquina marble (that once occupied the kitchen and it is recovered and used as a carpet that accompanies and emphasizes the directionality of the plant) and another new from Birch plywood boards and technical tiles tied to the fresh and low cost bricoleur materiality, The introduction of the steel reinforcing frame as a central object of the house, placed winding between the existing pillars, yellow lacquered. It is re-aestheticized as the carrier of the objects of the house: library, storage of memories, night lamp and toy. It is everything and it is nothing.Save this picture!© Luis Diaz DiazSave this picture!DrawingSave this picture!© Luis Diaz DiazThe curtain as a continuous element, minimizing the inside-outside that separates closets, pantry and bathrooms introducing theatrical and playful connotations and inviting the inhabitant to perform with it, to change the space and to play with the mysteries, contradictions and paradoxes that privacy offers us beyond morality. The use of colour as the screenplay for the domestic attributes: a yellow table support leg, a small celestial niche that collects the toys of the youngest inhabitant, a pink nose that hides the kitchen air extraction, two green tubes that rescue an old countertop of marble and two blue doors that ripped from their supporting partition show themselves as foreign objects.Save this picture!© Luis Diaz DiazProject gallerySee allShow lessHEYTEA LAB, Shenzhen OCT Harbor Store / TOMO DESIGNSelected Projects8M House / Architects’ CreativeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bilbao, Vizcaya, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Not as Expensive to Install E15 Infrastructure as Opponents Claim

first_img New information from the Petroleum Equipment Institute shows that the cost of upgrading an existing retail gas station to sell E15 is substantially less than recently suggested by ethanol opponents. E15 has been in the marketplace for more than a year now. Stations offering the fuel have seen overall fuel sales and in-store sales increase. But some retailers have been discouraged from exploring E15 by biofuel opponents who have stated adding E15 will cost 200-thousand to 300-thousand dollars. According to the ethanol industry – the stations that offer E15 today have spent just 10-thousand dollars per station on average to add the product – or slightly less than one-penny per gallon of gasoline sold for the average retail gas station. The Petroleum Equipment Institute has underscored the industry’s point. At the request of USDA – PEI examined the potential cost of installing E15 at retail gas stations under 10 different scenarios.The PEI report found that stations that are just required to have compatible equipment can offer E15 with minimal investment. Those that can use existing dispensers can offer E15 for under 12-hundred dollars on average per station. Stations that require a listing by a testing laboratory also have inexpensive options. Stations can choose to retrofit their dispensers to offer E15 for under 42-hundred dollars per dispenser on average or replace dispensers to offer E15 for under $20,500 per dispenser on average. Even new stations being built could add E15 for under 10-thousand dollars per dispenser on average.The BYO Ethanol Campaign reminds retailers that the cost estimates from PEI don’t include any available incentives that help defray installation costs. USDA’s Rural Energy for America Program – for example – has funded hundreds of blender pumps that can offer a range of ethanol blends like E15. Further – the return on investment is quick given today’s markets. Given ethanol’s discount to gasoline and the current value of RINs – retailers offering mid-level ethanol blends like E15 can quickly recoup their investments in infrastructure.

Purdue Student Farm Helping to Stock Local Food Pantries With Fresh…

first_img Facebook Twitter By Purdue University News Service – Apr 9, 2020 Facebook Twitter SHARE Purdue Student Farm Helping to Stock Local Food Pantries With Fresh Produce SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Student Farm Helping to Stock Local Food Pantries With Fresh Produce A student harvests leafy greens at the Purdue Student Farm. (Purdue University photo/Steve Hallett)Amid rising economic insecurity and heightened uncertainty, the Purdue Student Farm is doing all it can to keep its local community healthy and well-fed. The usual outlets the farm sells to, mainly campus dining venues, are closed due to the COVID-19 virus, but the farm is still active and producing. Currently, the farm supplies Food Finders Food Bank and the on-campus ACE Food Pantry with fresh produce.Over the last three weeks, Steve Hallett, horticulture and landscape architecture professor and advisor to the student farm, said they have donated 100 bags of fresh greens to Food Finders every Monday and Thursday.“There is a possibility that there may be some shortages of fresh vegetables as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially in donations to organizations such as Food Finders, and we want to do our part for our community,” Hallett said.Currently, leafy greens are mainly what’s available for harvest but Chris Adair, the student farm manager, said they will continue making donations to pantries as new crops become ready to harvest and this crisis persists.“We’re going to run the farm for as long and as normally as possible,” he continued. “We try to always promote the idea that access to healthy food is essential for every community, not just during times like this.”The farm is taking extra precautions to keep its student employees and beneficiaries safe and healthy. This involves dividing into two small groups that never interact with each other and keeping employees a safe distance apart while harvesting or packaging. Additionally, while handling food and packaging, students wear masks and gloves at all times.It may feel like the world has stopped but people still need access to food, which means workers along the entire supply chain, from farmers to grocery clerks, are essential in keeping the nation fed, Hallett said.“We are planning for the rest of the season,” he continued. “It is sowing and planting time. We hope we will be able to sell to the dining halls by the end of the summer, but if not, we will sell directly to the community and we will continue to donate.” Previous articleCorn, Soybean, Wheat Ending Stocks Increase in USDA’s April Supply and Demand ReportNext articleProtecting Farm Labor During the COVID-19 Pandemic Purdue University News Servicelast_img read more

“Each passing day just adds to the outcry,” one year after Deyda Hydara’s murder

first_imgNews January 27, 2020 Find out more August 6, 2020 Find out more Organisation RSF_en Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders issued a new appeal to President Yahya Jammeh today, on the eve of the first anniversary of journalist Deyda Hydara’s murder on 16 December 2004, urging him to acknowledge the inability of the Gambian investigators to solve the case and asking him to request the help of a neutral foreign police force.In a speech read on behalf of Reporters Without Borders by Gambia Press Union coordinator Demba Ali Jawo today in Banjul, the organisation reiterated its call to the Gambian government “to face the facts and equip itself to solve this terrible mystery by requesting help from the Americans, Europeans, South Africa, the UN or any other neutral country or body.”Léonard Vincent, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk, should have delivered the speech personally at a Gambia Press Union news conference on press freedom but he was prevented from travelling to Banjul because the Gambian authorities did not issue him a visa in time.“Dear friends,What do we know today, one year after Deyda’s murder? That his killers are cowards and that they are still at large. That the person who pulled the trigger has no reason to be concerned about his future, as things stand right now, any more than the person who gave the order to do it. That Deyda’s family has to live with this. That his widow, daughters and sons courageously confront a smear campaign by perverse investigators. And that his fellow journalists are not only threatened by an aggressive president but also by one of the worst sets of laws in Africa. But as each day passes we get stronger, because each day that passes just adds to the outcry. For all these reasons, I am sad to be unable to be with you today. I am also angry at being unable to go with you to the scene of the murder on Sankung Sillah Street and transmit to you there a message from Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard that we have not forgotten you and that we are your allies. Deyda, who had worked for our organisation since 1994, was an energetic man who knew his rights. In The Point, he held up a mirror to the Gambian people. In Agence France-Presse, he was Gambia’s spokesman for the entire world’s press. He knew how to talk to us, at times to shake us. He knew how to share with us his concerns, his anger and his enthusiasm. No one answered his phone on the morning of 17 December 2004. Someone had decided to silence him for ever. Tears were shed in Paris, as in Banjul and elsewhere in the world.No one whatsoever has been accused of being the murderer. We do not know the identity of the gunmen in the Mercedes taxis with no licence plates. We do not know who their boss was. Our anger is on a par with our uncertainty and for this very human reason we demand to know the truth.After this stifling year of tension, mistrust and fear, things must be clear. If Reporters Without Borders cannot be with you today in Banjul, if I cannot myself read my speech to you, it is because President Yahya Jammeh now sees Reporters Without Borders as an enemy or at the very least as a troublemaker. But what do we want? We just want justice to be done. How? By discovering the truth. This goal is simple. There is nothing subversive about it. It should be shared by all those who cannot stand injustice, whether they are presidents, ministers, journalists, ordinary citizens or human rights activists. Indeed, I would like to say something to the Gambian government: “Help us. Deyda’s family and friends need you. Promises given with your hand over your heart are not enough. We now need action.” But we have to be realistic. The investigation is going nowhere. I will not dwell on the “confidential report” which the NIA published in June. Let us just say that the investigators are not doing anything serious. Anyway, those who have something to say refuse to talk to them because they do not trust them. And without doubt, others also would have things to say but they are not being questioned.There is no denying the fact that Gambia has been reeling since Deyda’s death. The country has been badly hurt. The trust between press and government that is essential to keep a democracy alive is broken. As Pap Saine told me one day, Deyda’s murderers have an immense debt to pay Gambia. The authorities cannot go on ignoring the legitimate appeals of one of the country’s most respected families. Deyda’s family and friends are demanding justice, but it is not just for them, it is also for the good of their country.Reporters Without Borders would like to send a special greeting to all those friends of Deyda present here today who are not Gambians. Your help is essential, not just to show our Gambian friends that we share in their suffering. You are here today in Banjul to prove that the three shots that were fired at Deyda’s car on the night of 16 December 2004 in Kanifing have echoed throughout the continent. This horrible murder is not just a matter for Gambians. It has sent a terrifying signal to all African journalists that they could also be gunned down if they do their job too well.Let us continue to loudly proclaim Deyda’s name in Ghana, Mali, Senegal, Democratic Republic of Congo, South Africa, Sierra Leone and elsewhere. Let us continue to say that we will no longer tolerate this kind of threat to leading African journalists such as Norbert Zongo, Carlos Cardoso and Deyda in the past, and others today. Let us continue to demand that the Gambian government should face the facts and equip itself to solve this terrible mystery by requesting help from the Americans, Europeans, South Africa, the UN or any other neutral country or body. The resources of Reporters Without Borders are also at the Gambian government’s full disposal.I would like to end my appeal by addressing President Jammeh directly. “Mr. President, a French philosopher recently wrote something you will have to agree with. He said: ‘It is not because things are the way they are that we have to be resigned. It is because we are resigned that things are they way they are.’ As Deyda might have said, I leave you to think about that. Good thinking, Mr. President.”Thank you.” to go further GambiaAfrica Help by sharing this information Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder News Follow the news on Gambia GambiaAfrica Reporters Without Borders issued a new appeal to President Yahya Jammeh today, on the eve of the first anniversary of journalist Deyda Hydara’s murder on 16 December 2004, urging him to acknowledge the inability of the Gambian investigators to solve the case and asking him to request the help of a neutral foreign police force.

UTPB top architect retires

first_img Facebook UTPB top architect retires Previous articleTxDOT traffic alerts for week of May 6, 2021Next article26th Annual Unity Luncheon in celebration of Cinco de Mayo Federico Martinez Twitter Local NewsEducation By Federico Martinez – May 5, 2021 WhatsApp University of Texas Permian Basin Associate Vice President of Facilities Management David Wayland poses for a photo Wednesday in the weight room of the D. Kirk Edwards Family Human Performance Center. (Jacob Ford | Odessa American His life-long motto has been “build it and they will come.” And for the past 13 years David Wayland has done just that for the University of Texas Permian Basin and the University of Texas System.In recent years, Wayland, who officially retired this past Friday, has overseen, to name a few projects, the construction of UTPB’s Science and Technology Building, Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center, the Engineering Building and most recently, the D. Kirk Edwards Human Performance Center.“I’ve been extremely fortunate to be part of this campus during this time,” said Wayland, who has served as UTPB’s vice president of Facilities Management for the past 3 years. “We’ve had a lot of projects going on.“A big part of the reason I made the jump to UTPB is because of (UTPB President) Dr. Sandra Woodley’s vision. I saw that she was putting together a great team; an exciting team.”Prior to arriving at UTPB, Wayland served as the senior project manager for the University of Texas System Office of Facilities Planning and Construction.That experience is why Woodley wanted Wayland on her team, she said.“This university has benefited from David Wayland’s expertise and commitment since 2008,” Woodley said. “He is an exceptional talent and we will miss him tremendously.“His contributions to UTPB will be paying dividends for our campus and students for many years to come.”Wayland, who was born in Bloomington, Delaware, earned his master’s of architecture and B.S. in architecture from The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.After stints working as an architect in Washington and New Mexico, he arrived in West Texas where he was first hired as the chief building official for the City of Odessa from 1983-88 and then served in the same capacity in Midland until 2008 when he joined the University of Texas System, which consists of 8 campuses including Odessa and Midland.Becoming an architect was a childhood dream that came true for Wayland, who says “there was never any doubt in my mind what I wanted to do.”He loves the challenges of designing and building something, whether it’s a new house or a performing arts center. The most important task is making sure a project is completed within budget.One of his most challenging and enjoyable projects was the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center, he said.“There were so many consultants involved and so much to learn,” Wayland recalls. At the start of the project he quickly realized how intricate the design needed to be in order to provide the best acoustics, lighting and seating.“We ended up bringing in a theater consultant who came in and gave us all a lesson in performing arts 101 to help us understand what we needed to do,” Wayland said. “The $80 million Wagner Noël was a real fun project.”For Wayland, the satisfaction comes from doing a job well done and knowing that he and his staff have created buildings that will serve instructors and students for many decades to come.Although Wayland officially retired on April 30, he still participated in the university’s commencement activities May 1. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday he was back at his office desk, finishing up notes for his eventual successor, and making sure he was on-hand in case school administrators had any questions about current projects.Wayland laughs out loud when he realizes, that he’s in his office working on his birthday (on May 5). Being retired “is going to take some adjusting to,” he confesses.“I just turned 67,” Wayland said. “I’m very fortunate to be able to retire at this age; many people can’t.“It’s going to be a transition. I’m starting a new chapter in my life, so I’m going to try and take it one day at a time. Maybe I’ll get a little more golf in and be able to work out at a little more leisurely pace, instead of always having to hurry to get to the office.”UTPB MBA program WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook Pinterest Twitterlast_img read more
