This project, to be developed in a residential neighborhood in the east area of the city of Lima, belongs to a particular client. The challenge: meet all the requirements of the owner in an irregular piece of land on a hill with steep slopes. The location of the land and the view you have from it towards part of the city, would be decisive for the project.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2.8x ArquitectosRecommended ProductsWindowsC.R.

The project had to fulfill this need and at the same time guarantee the comfort in her everyday life.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2.8x ArquitectosThe architectural idea was to generate a modern, transparent and minimalist volume with plenty of light, and with certain concepts of the modern architectural movement of the 30´s. To solve the problem of the steep slopes, the main entrance and 75% of the whole project, were situated in a medium point of the land. The entrance bridge, the social area, the main bedroom and the service area are located at this point, while the garage and the storage rooms in a lower level. On top, a second floor has a complete bedroom for guests ready to receive members of the family who live abroad.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2.8x ArquitectosThe project is composed by two contrasting volumes. One completely transparent for the social area, where glass and metal are predominant with a clean view over the city. A second hermetic volume for the private area, where stone and concrete are predominant. The hermetic volume rests on the rock in a strong way creating a sense of firmness that makes the transparent volume float freely sticking out from the hard rocky surrounding. Considering that all the houses are placed against the hills, and with the idea of profiting from the excellent view, a garden terrace was planned on the roof on top of the social area, completing in this way the second floor that corresponds to the bedroom for guests.Save this picture!Courtesy of 2.8x ArquitectosIn the same open space of the social area we have an integrated kitchen which responds to the importance the client gives to its use. The vinyl black floor integrates the spaces  creating a chromatic continuity in a range of whites, grays and blacks on which the whole project is developed. The red color in the front door and the kitchen counter, as well as the balcony that projects from the stone front, give personality to the house.Save this picture!PlanThe results are a house with personality,that respects the surroundings and the city. A house that could stand on an irregular piece of land and could accomplish the requirements of comfort of the owner.Project gallerySee allShow lessAudemars Piguet’s Royal Oak 40th Anniversary Exhibition / Situ FabricationArticlesDaegu Gosan Public Library CompetitionArticles Share Area:  800 m² Area:  800 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Projects Peru Year:  Architects: 2.8x arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” 2011last_img read more

Benton County Farmers Give President Trump an Interesting Thank You Message

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter “I just never expected this. And if it helps us in any way focus on what we are out here, doing what we do trying to feed people here as well as the world, then how can it not be a good thing.”The picture was tweeted out by Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue and then retweeted by Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. You can also find it on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Benton County Farmers Give President Trump an Interesting Thank You MessageThe picture has now gone viral. You’ve probably seen it on social media or even on Fox and Friends Sunday morning. It started out as a conversation in the coffee shop and turned into a maze thanking President Trump for his announcement to allow year-round sales of E15.Bruce Buchanan farms with his son, Allen, in Benton County, Indiana. When someone suggested the idea, Buchanan said, “Surely, we’re not going to mow down a 220-bushel corn crop. I mean, I’ve been farming long enough to know that I’m not going to do that.”So, he sought help from someone in the precision planting field to use his combine and harvest the corn. He said he lost a bit of yield by doing it that way, but he still felt it was worth it.“The problem became when you had the curvature of the lettering, you did lay over a few stalks here and there, but nothing to what you might have expected. And we did harvest four semi loads.”Why did Buchanan want to do it? He said he’s heard and read that year-round E15 sales could have an impact of an additional 2 billion bushels of corn demand, and he wanted to thank President Trump for his efforts to help farmers.“Even if it only affects us in 40 percent of what I have been told or read about the usage of corn, certainly it helps us to rid ourselves of the huge carryovers that we’re enduring right now. That’s the problem in our markets is that we are too good at what we do. So, in my mind, a lot of what we have is on us. As much or more so than it is on a tariff situation which we’re only trying to do for the good of the country.The media and social media attention that the picture has received has been surprising to Buchanan.

Limerick diesel thefts

first_imgEmail TWO hundred and fifty litres of diesel were stolen from three trucks in Foynes on one night last weekend. Garda Chief Superintendent David Sheahan also told council members at this Monday’s Joint Policing Committee meeting that a man was stopped at a Garda checkpoint recently carrying three large drums and siphoning equipment. Limerick Fine Gael TD Patrick O’Donovan asked if any illicit wash diesel had made it across the border into the city and county. “I’ve heard cases where engines have been wrecked and cars totally destroyed because of illicit fuel,” he said. Chief Supt Sheahan told him that to date there had only been one case of illicit diesel being sold locally.

Coaching scheme smashes targets at autoglass

first_imgVehicle glass repair specialist Autoglass has achieved measurable businessimprovements as the result of a performance coaching initiative. Seventeen senior managers were put through the scheme in an 18-month periodand are now reporting better financial procedures, faster turnover of repairsand replacements and improved customer perceptions. The scheme was suggested by HR director Carol Madeley after a managementreorganisation highlighted the need for a simpler management structure andincreased the flexibility within the business. “Coaching is the pathway to becoming a successful manager. It gives amanager energy and motivation for the job in hand and cultivates a willingnessto develop personal skills and get the most from a team,” she said. The company sought the help of a range of performance coaches who wouldsupport each manager in their restructured role and help with motivation throughouttheir teams. Such was the success of the scheme that Autoglass is now extending thecoaching offer to more senior managers. “Our aim now is to embed coaching into the business as the dominantmanagement style. In addition to the personal coaching scheme, we are runningcoaching skills workshops for our senior team. We are developing a strongbelief in the value of coaching, and removing some barriers,” saiddevelopment and training manager Simon Fitzgerald. Madeley added, “Autoglass operates in an ever-changing, dynamic serviceenvironment where managers must be able to confront every possible situation.The introduction of a personal coach who would work supportively with managersseemed the ideal solution to ensure high standards of management across theorganisation.” Bernie Newton, a regional manager of 14 Autoglass branches acrossLincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Humberside, was one of the firstto be allocated a coach. As a result his region was the first to receive anoverall green scorecard audit in Autoglass annual audits of financialprocedures, industry standards, health and safety and customer perceptions. Madeley said the coaching scheme has proven a success on two fronts –employee feedback and results. The enthusiasm generated has resulted in highlevels of motivation among all staff and record conversion rates for thecompany. “Our aim now is to pass lessons on so the senior managers, in effect,become coaches to their teams. The resulting benefit for our customers shouldthen be improved standards of services from more focused and motivatedteams,” she said. Related posts:No related photos.

Snow debate about the timing… SpicerHaart send staff on Alpine driving course just before storm Emma

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Snow debate about the timing… SpicerHaart send staff on Alpine driving course just before storm Emma previous nextAgencies & PeopleSnow debate about the timing… SpicerHaart send staff on Alpine driving course just before storm EmmaTwo dozen of the company’s best-performing staff had fewer excuses about getting to appointments last week after being drilled in Austria.Nigel Lewis5th March 201801,008 Views Thursday and Friday last week were quiet days for many agents as viewings, appraisals and tenant check-ins proved difficult to get to as the beast from the east roared in.But one set of 24 SpicerHaart agents will have had fewer excuses than most for cancelling appointments, as they had recently completed a course in the Austrian alps designed to sharped up their snow and ice driving skills.The top-performing agents from several of the company’s agencies including haart, Chewton Rose, Felicity J Lord, Darlows and Haybrook were in Austria three weeks ago on a glacier near the ski resort of Sölden.It’s some 3,000 metres above sea level and the highest driver training camp of its kind in the world.The course, which was provided by BMW, included instruction on how to avoid skidding into walls of ice, breaking and steering on snow, as well as avoiding steep drops down the mountainside.4The trip was part of SpicerHaart’s ongoing programme of taking its brightest stars on foreign jaunts.“It was a brilliant trip, absolutely fantastic [and] we all now know how to drive properly in the snow,” said Mel Mills (pictured, above), Branch Manager of haart in Bury St Edmunds, a multi-award winner who has also been on trips to Miami, Bangkok, New York, Abu Dhabi and Germany.Not all the agents on the course nailed driving in the snow straight away. Andrew Benn, the Managing Director of the company’s lettings division, shredded a cone during a 60mph driving challenge in a BMW M2 saloon during the event (below).“Rewarding the very best is always the greatest part of my job,” says Paul Smith, Chief Executive of Spicerhaart.“Every year we try to find extraordinary experiences to incentivise our teams across the UK to be the best performers in the company.“Racing finely tuned BMW’s across glaciers with our top people on the highest mountain range in Europe takes some beating.“Little did we realise just how quickly we would be putting our new-found skills to the test, back home in the UK!”.haart Haybrook Mel Mills Paul Smith Andrew Benn Chewton Rose spicerhaart Darlows Felicity J Lord March 5, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Crimson edged in NCAA first round

first_imgIn a fight to the finish, the Harvard women’s soccer team fell to Boston College (B.C.) in the opening round of the NCAA tournament, 1-0.Harvard and B.C. finished the first half scoreless, but 33 seconds into the second, B.C. broke the tie with a goal.In such a low-scoring battle, the story of the game was defense. The Eagles only allowed one Crimson shot the entire game, whereas Harvard, which surrendered 20 shots, was led by goalkeeper Lauren Mann ’10, a Second Team Ivy League selection, who recorded 10 saves on the day.The region’s second seed, B.C. (15-3-2) finished the regular season ranked No. 7 in the country. B.C. also defeated the Crimson earlier this season, 4-1, on Sept. 18, and has not lost to Harvard since 2002.Although the loss ends the Crimson’s season (9-7-1; 6-1 Ivy League), the year still had its triumphs since Harvard won its second-consecutive Ivy League Championship (ninth overall) and saw six members of the team receive All-Ivy League honors: (first team) Katherine Sheeleigh ’11; (second team) Melanie Baskind ’12, Mann, Lindsey Kowal ’12, Lizzy Nichols ’10; and (honorable mention) Gina Wideroff ’11.last_img read more

The politics of jurisprudence

first_imgThe median attorney’s politics most closely resemble those of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a center-left Democrat, while the median judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals aligns with a center-right Republican like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. In lower courts judges skew more liberal, but they trend increasingly conservative up the ranks of the judiciary to state supreme courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals.“The higher or more politically important the court, the more conservative it is, especially when compared to the overall population of attorneys,” the paper concludes.New research from faculty at Harvard Kennedy School and Stanford University measures the ideological positions of the nation’s attorneys and judges. The analysis shows that the politics of the median attorney most closely resemble those of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, while the median U.S. Court of Appeals judge is most similar to Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor. Graphic by Georgia Bellas/Harvard Staff (Source: Adam Bonica and Maya Sen)“In a world where politics was not part of the equation at all in the selection of judges, judges would look left of center or more left of center than they do now,” said Sen in a phone interview.This counterintuitive distribution, evident across all federal courts and in about half (24) of all state courts, points to the overarching role that politics plays in the selection process — politicization that largely works to Republican advantage, the paper finds.“We don’t think that there’s this smoky, backroom thing with people cutting deals and saying, ‘Let’s politicize this court and not this one,’” said Sen. “But what we think is that over time and through many actors pursuing their own interests, that what we’re seeing is a pattern where politics clearly plays a pretty important role in the way that the nation’s judges are selected. And when you look at the big macro level, it appears to prioritize higher courts, more politically important courts.”So what explains the predominance of conservatives on the elite courts? One factor, Sen said, is that conservative judicial candidates are often “strategically funneled” toward judgeships in the highest courts by politicians and organizations such as the Federalist Society, the influential conservative legal think tank founded in 1982 by law school students at Harvard, Yale, and the University of Chicago.“The Federalist Society represents a coordinated strategy of retaining and fostering conservative talent at the upper echelons of legal academia — with an eye toward shaping important federal courts — the precise politicization that we consider here,” Sen and Bonica wrote. Their research says that graduates of 14 top law schools who go on to become judges are more conservative than their peers, especially at the levels of federal courts of appeals and state high courts.Just as politicization is not felt equally across the court system, the level of polarization also ranges, the study says, with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals the most polarized and state lower courts the least. Increased politicization of the federal courts, the research says, does lead to increased polarization. Sen said this newly available data to gauge politicization and compare judges across courts has opened new areas for future study around the political patterns of lawyers and law schools, such as who contributes to campaigns and who does not, and why some law schools appear more liberal than others.Nancy Gertner was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts in 1993 by President Bill Clinton. She retired from the bench in 2011 and is now a senior lecturer on law at Harvard Law School (HLS). Gertner said the research “comports” with her view that Republican presidents such George W. Bush selected conservative judges, but Democratic presidents, including Clinton and Barack Obama, J.D. ’91, largely pulled their punches in an effort to sidestep contentious confirmation processes.“[Clinton] was not about to waste his chits on people who would garner any kind of press, and so his appointments skewed moderate. Obama did the same thing, except the past two years, perhaps,” she said. “That skewing you don’t see with the Republicans. If they’re in position to get someone confirmed, they’re going to get someone confirmed.”Charles Fried, the Beneficial Professor of Law at HLS, said the research documents what is already known: that politics has always played a decisive role in judicial appointments.“Presidents regularly nominate judges who are more or less ideologically compatible with them, or in any case, are not ideologically compatible with the people whom they view as their adversaries. That happened with [Franklin] Roosevelt, it happened with Eisenhower except … he miscalculated in the case of [Supreme Court justices] Brennan and Warren … it happened certainly with Kennedy,” he said.“That’s the Constitution. It’s the president’s nomination. There are states and countries where the judiciary is a kind of career path, a sort of civil service. That has never been our system, not from the first day,” said Fried.While ideology certainly colors how some judges rule, other factors, like a judge’s legal experience, also play an influential role, said Gertner, who chairs an advisory panel that identifies and recommends candidates for vacancies in the U.S. District Courts in Boston and Springfield to the state’s U.S. senators, Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey. To help the bench better reflect professional diversity, the panel’s charge from Warren has been to seek out nominees who don’t necessarily come from the usual stable for federal judgeships, like corporate attorneys, federal prosecutors, or lawyers from big downtown firms, said Gertner, a onetime criminal defense attorney.“When you think about the thousands of decisions that a judge makes — they’re not just decisions about the outcome of a case, but decisions about what matters, how much time to give a case, what’s at the top of the pile, and what’s the bottom — then it makes sense to have people who are going to look at the world differently,” she said. While U.S. Supreme Court opinions are routinely examined through the political lens of the court’s nine justices, far less is known about the ideological makeup of the thousands of judges on the nation’s federal and state benches.Unlike with politicians, whose views are easily known through public speeches and position papers, voting records, and party affiliations, studying the politics of judges is much more difficult. State and federal codes of judicial conduct prohibit judges from engaging in most political activities or in public discussions of issues or matters that may appear before the court, as a means of preserving an independent judiciary. That stricture limits the data for broad analysis.Now, research from Maya Sen, an assistant professor of public policy with the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), and Adam Bonica, an assistant professor of political science at Stanford University, sheds some light on the opaque world of politics in the judiciary.Through novel analysis using data from the Martindale-Hubbell (a comprehensive directory of nearly a million lawyers, judges, and law professors) and from Bonica’s Database on Ideology, Money in Politics, and Elections (which scores all individuals and organizations making campaign contributions to state and federal candidates between 1979 and 2012), Sen and Bonica contend in a new working paper that they’re able to measure the politics of judges and attorneys, quantifying what had been known only anecdotally, if at all.Among the findings:Attorneys as a group are “quite liberal” compared with the general U.S. population; judges, on the other hand, are more conservative than lawyers, despite being drawn exclusively from the existing attorney pool.last_img read more
