THE PLACE The physical environment is the typical of a coastal residential development, an isolated place without service during winter time, and a nice place to spend the summer holidays without overcrowded touristic areas, with Biniancolla bay across the road. This is a plot with a long and narrow northwest ramp, with a 20m area of the Maritime Zone disabling half plot, with entrance from the west, from below, with views to the entrance and to the setting sun.Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreTHE PROJECTThe program is a Tourist Holiday Home for 8 people and Excellent category (typology defined by local legislation), without architectural barriers to allow access to disabled guests.Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíThe building is cornered by the upper boundaries of the plot, keeping away from the entrance and leaving between both an area too steep and exposed to be considered and used as a garden. The narrowess of the plot makes it difficult to create an outdoor space facing south, large enough to host the summer life and the pool, so the building is arranged in a “U” form being fitted against the noth and east party walls, and the line of 20 meters from the sea-land boundary, and surrounding a sort of “patio” and well south-facing pool embedded in the ground.Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíThis first condicioning, coupled with the need to remove the architectural barriers, defines a clear and forceful volumetry. The building cornice is deliberately at the same height throughout its development in order to avoid “volume festival”, although the deck slabs are at different heights, depending on the covering space, they enable the emergence of skylights in bathrooms and kitchen, a sun terrace, and try to integrate the solar panels.Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíThe program is organized within the building according to its situation, more or less close to the street (more or less private), and to its orientation. Thus, we find a first strip consisting of the kitchen, dining and living room, forming a single space in north-south direction, ending on a covered terrace and a staircase leading to the sundeck located over it. This first strip opens westward constituting the main facade of the building, through a gallery that filters the setting sun through a lattice formed by wooden slats, and selects grades of privacy and views through large sliding shutters also formed by the same slats. This filter-diaphragm matches the garage doors, made of the same material and with the same design, and configures the image of the building, directly matching also the southern neighbor (which I projected and built a decade ago).Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíThe first strip program also opens to the “patio”, private and sunny, which is the heart of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíThe second strip (the center of the “U”), perpendicular to the first, is located north, occupied by the lobby, the stairs leading down to the garage, two bathrooms and laundry, including a clothesline. The corridor runs through the patio, as in the cloisters, turning ninety degrees in the third strip and giving access to the bedrooms, looking east through a window flush with the ground, which is higher than the house at this point . Thus visually the bedrooms take over the adjacent land and are protected from the prying eyes of the opulent neighbors. Down the corridor, as it should be, the third bathroom, necessary to describe the house as “excellent”.Save this picture!Courtesy of Javier Mantolán SeguíThe pool is located at south. It borns in front of the “patio” and runs to the east due to lack of space, touching the house and embedding into the ground, which deforms it slightly, giving it a certain vibration characteristic of tamed nature.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessHerzog & de Meuron Breaks Ground on Public “Bathing Lake” in RiehenArchitecture NewsUpdate: Facades+ Performance SymposiumEvent Share CopyAbout this officeJavier Mantolán SeguíOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHouseses MarcadalsHousesSpainPublished on April 08, 2013Cite: “Ses Alzines / Javier Mantolán Seguí” 08 Apr 2013.

It began in November 2007 when he and two colleagues set off on foot from Asmara and, after an exhausting six-day walk through the desert, crossed into Sudan. It continued in Wedisherifay, a refugee camp just a few miles from the border, and then in Khartoum. Finally Tedros is free of his fear of being sent back to Eritrea, after being resettled by the UN refugee agency, UNHCR, in Norway, where he is starting a new life.Reporters Without Borders believes it is important to offer a forum to journalists like Abraham who are forced to go into exile. Many of his colleagues have been imprisoned and his compatriots continue to suffer, but Tedros is determined to combat his government’s cruelty through his writing. “My pen is still my weapon,” he says.Tedros was just 18 in 2000, when he began writing for Setit, which was Eritrea’s leading privately-owned newspaper until it was closed in September 2001. He wrote more than 60 articles for the newspaper. While studying journalism at Asmara University, he also worked for the newspaper Hadas Eritrea and other news media. As a result of what he wrote, he received warnings from the authorities and spent several periods in detention.After graduating in June 2006, he was assigned to do his compulsory “university service” with the website of the ruling Popular Front for Democracy and Justice, the country’s only political party. Although relieved that he had not been made to work for the information ministry and its acting minister, Ali Abdu, he was nonetheless dismayed that he was working for an organisation which he regarded as “responsible for the Eritrean people’s misery.” While there, he stood by the “defence of press freedom” and refused to bow to the demands of government propaganda, arousing his boss’s mistrust and hostility.Aware that many of his colleagues had been sent to prison camps and fearing for his own safety, Tedros tried repeatedly to flee Eritrea, succeeding with two other journalists on his sixth attempt. Their survival was due in large part to their good fortune in encountering a “hero,” an old Sudanese nomad, in the border area, where so many other Eritreans have died, including journalist Paulos Kidane in June 2007.Soon after crossing the border, they were put in a prison in the eastern city of Kassala, “where most of the Eritrean asylum-seekers first end up before they get transferred to the nearby refugee camp.” The prison guards made false promises and extorted money from them before they were finally taken to the UNHCR refugee camp at Wedisherifay.The fact that from Wedisherifay “you can see Eritrean hills just a couple of miles away” heightens the fears of the camp’s inmates that they could be abducted at any time by the Eritrean security agents believed to be regular visitors to the camp. Nonetheless, Tedros discovered that he had been lucky to make it to Wedisherifay as the Sudanese government had been sending hundreds of asylum-seekers straight back to Eritrea at the time.Tedros later travelled illegally to Khartoum, a terrible two-day journey with 40 other people who were squeezed into a single truck by a smuggler. He quickly got absorbed into life in the Sudanese capital and created his own newspaper, Shewit. But its popularity exposed him to new threats from the Eritrean authorities and he decided to terminate it. Wanting to move to a country where he could work freely as a journalist, but refusing to migrate clandestinely to Egypt or Libya, like many of his compatriots, he finally decided to apply to the UNHCR for refugee status and resettlement, although the procedure was “complicated (…) frustrating (and) extremely long.” Now in Norway after two years of dangers and ordeals, Tedros is taking advantage of his hard-won freedom, planning to resume work as a journalist and writing a series of articles about his arrival in Norway and his life there.

first_img Share Save About Author: David Wharton The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HUD, FHFA Clarify Timeline for Foreclosure and Eviction Suspensions Hours after President Trump announced a suspension of foreclosures and evictions for mortgages backed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), official statements from FHFA and HUD clarified that the policy will extend at least 60 days. This is contrary to earlier reporting that pegged the window for these suspensions as extending “until the end of April.”During an earlier press conference Wednesday, President Trump had said, “Today I am also announcing that the Department of Housing and Urban Development is providing immediate relief to renters and homeowners by suspending all foreclosures and evictions until the end of April. We are working very closely with Dr. Ben Carson and everybody from HUD.”“Today’s actions will allow households who have an FHA-insured mortgage to meet the challenges of COVID-19 without fear of losing their homes, and help steady market concerns,” said HUD Secretary Dr. Benjamin Carson. “The health and safety of the American people is of the utmost importance to the Department, and the halting of all foreclosure actions and evictions for the next 60 days will provide homeowners with some peace of mind during these trying times.”“This is an uncertain time for many Americans, particularly those who could experience a loss of income. As such, we want to provide FHA borrower households with some immediate relief given the current circumstances,” said Federal Housing Commissioner The Hon. Brian Montgomery. “Our actions today make it clear where the priority needs to be.”“This foreclosure and eviction suspension allows homeowners with an Enterprise-backed mortgage to stay in their homes during this national emergency,” said FHFA Director Mark Calabria. “As a reminder, borrowers affected by the coronavirus who are having difficulty paying their mortgage should reach out to their mortgage servicers as soon as possible. The Enterprises are working with mortgage servicers to ensure that borrowers facing hardship because of the coronavirus can get assistance.”Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Kathy Kraninger also released a statement:The actions taken today by HUD and FHFA are timely and an important step in providing assurance to consumers. I commend my colleagues at HUD and FHFA for being proactive on this issue and providing Americans with much needed peace of mind during this uncertain time.Earlier this month, the Bureau, along with our Federal and State partners, encouraged financial institutions to work with their customers affected by the coronavirus. Consumers’ first stop in the face of hardship is with their creditors and their financial institutions, so our message was important for regulated entities to hear. I will continue to work with our Federal and State partners, and seek feedback from stakeholders, to ensure we are providing appropriate flexibilities to benefit consumers during this time.For consumers, the Bureau continues our work to protect them in the financial marketplace. We have released resources for consumers to understand issues that may arise as a result of COVID-19, including information on how to protect their finances and how to submit complaints. Our team is ready to help consumers resolve issues with their financial services providers who submit a complaint through our consumer complaint system.This development follows upon the FHFA’s announcement earlier this month that the GSEs would provide payment forbearance to borrowers impacted by the coronavirus. This forbearance would permit a mortgage payment to be suspended for up to 12 months due to hardship considerations.. Many cities and states had already announced moratoriums on evictions—including the cities of Seattle, Los Angeles, and Boston and states like New York and Massachusetts.“Imagine if you’re in a situation where you just lost your job because of something out of your control, and you can’t pay your rent,” said San Francisco Mayor London Breed, who on Friday signed an executive order putting a moratorium on evictions for 30 days. “We want to take that stress away from people who might feel that way.”Italy, who’s total number of Coronavirus cases has risen to 31,506, has also put a moratorium on foreclosures for its citizens.“The steps made by FHFA and HUD today are important to address the concerns that many Americans have regarding the far-reaching economic impact that COVID-19 will have,” said Ed Delgado, President and CEO of Five Star Global. “Mortgage servicers are at the ready to work with HUD and homeowners to make sure any homeowner questions on this moratorium are addressed quickly and adequately.”In an interview with American Banker earlier this week, Delgado had also addressed the potential strain mortgage servicers will face during the COVID-19 pandemic, including challenges such as fully staffing call centers.“Can they have every other cubicle occupied, so that you’re at least six feet apart from your co-worker?” Delgado asked.The new FHFA and HUD policy comes on the same day several agencies reported that the Department of the Treasury is looking to send $500 billion in checks to Americans in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the related economic shockwaves. Reports say checks will be sent in two $250 billion phases—first on April 6 and then on May 18. The Associated Press is reporting this plan is the centerpiece of a $1 trillion economic stimulus, and that the amount of the checks may depend on income and family size.The Associated Press states the Treasury’s plan would require approval by Congress and recommends $50 billion to stabilize the airline industry, $150 billion to issue loan guarantees to “other struggling sectors,” and $300 billion for small businesses. Politico reports the Senate is also expected to pass a multi-billion emergency aid package on Wednesday.  Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

first_img Tales of a traveler Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Looking out the window of a tourist bus and down at the people below is not the way Ruth Overstreet prefers to spend her vacations.Of course, she has been a bus tourist and enjoyed it, but if she can have her “druthers,” she would rather be out among the locals where she can absorb the culture.That’s why Overstreet often takes working vacations with volunteer organizations. By Jaine Treadwell Skip Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Sponsored Content She recently returned from Cambodia where she was a member of a volunteer work group with Habitat for Humanity. The trip to Cambodia was the second Habitat for Humanity working vacation that Overstreet has taken this summer. The first was to Paraguay in June.“I like working vacations because of the closeness you have with the people of the country,” she said. “That’s the best way to learn about the country and its people. And, too, I like to think that maybe I’m doing some good along the way.”Over the years, Overstreet has taken several working vacations with Habitat for Humanity and likes “working” with that organization. Latest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Email the author Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “I look on the Internet to find the projects that I want to apply for,” Overstreet said. “You apply directly to the project leader and he or she is the one who makes the decision as to whether you are accepted and you are not always accepted. Those who are accepted pay a fee that includes all expenses and a donation to Habitat for Humanity in that particular country. You also must pay for your transportation. So, actually, you pay to work.”Overstreet volunteers for Habitat for Humanity working vacations because she has a wealth of experience in building houses. She built her home in Springhill with the aid of books and magazines. So, she is one up on most members of the volunteer work group.“Most of them have never mixed mortar or laid bricks,” Overstreet said. “They get a quick lesson and it’s off to work.”The Habitat for Humanity project in Paraguay was completed during the two-week period the group was in Encarnacion. Print Article By The Penny Hoarder “There were eight local brick masons who worked on the project, so our work group was basically responsible for keeping the brick masons supplied with bricks and mortar,” she said. “The worked moved right along. The house was brick with a tile roof. It was relatively small, with two bedrooms and a living and kitchen area but it was nice. It had running water and electricity and would have cost about 2,600 U.S. dollars.”The work experience in Cambodia was vastly different. The two house sites were located on a rice paddy and were extremely wet. There were only three local brick masons assigned to the projects and everything had to be done by hand.“In Paraguay, we had an electric mixer for the concrete but, in Cambodia, we had to mix the concrete by hand,” Overstreet said. “We had to haul everything by hand. We would form a line and pass materials for one person to the next. We even hauled rocks for the floor that way. And, the temperature was high and so was the humidity. It was hard work.”The Habitat houses in Phnom Penh, Cambodia were even smaller than the one in Paraguay, probably not more than 14×20 feet. They were brick houses but had tin roofs.“We piled rocks on the ground to make a firm base for the floor,” Overstreet said. “Then cement was poured over the rocks. The houses are tall so that a sleep loft could be added if the family could afford it. And, the houses were not built to keep the roaches out.”The Habitat houses in Cambodia didn’t have running water or electricity and had squat toilets.“A squat toilet is exactly what it says it is,” Overstreet said, with a smile.The two Habitat houses in Cambodia would have cost about $1,500 each in American money. One of the houses, was for a family of three or four with a total income of $480 a month. The other was for a family of nine with a total income of $540 a month.“The people in the areas where we worked were farmers and they were very poor,” Overstreet said. “The farmers in Paraguay grow soybeans, wheat, corn and barley. In Cambodia, they primarily grow rice and some fruits. In both countries, they are glad to have help in building their houses. Help means that more people can have better places to live.“A lot of people live on platforms on the ground with roofs made out of whatever they could find,” Overstreet said. “They don’t own land so some people had put up shacks on the side of the road. A lot of people live on the streets, even families. So those who can afford a Habitat house are very fortunate.”Overstreet said the requirements for owning a Habitat for Humanity house are the same worldwide.“You have to be able to pay back the loan,” she said. “These houses are not free. If you cannot make the payments then you cannot be approved for a house.”When Overstreet’s group left Cambodia, one house had been completed and the other was going up.“Work was very slow because it was done by hand and, then too, we had inexperienced people laying bricks,” she said. “It was hard, tiring work.”But volunteering for a working vacation is not all work. There are opportunities for cultural experiences and a few side trips are planned.After about 10 days of hard “costly” labor, the volunteers are treated to a day or two of R&R.“When we were in Paraguay, we visited Iguazu Falls in Argentina,” Overstreet said. “These falls should be one of the Seven Wonders of the World. There are hundreds of them and it’s an incredible sight.”Overstreet had visited Iguazu Falls on a previous trip but said there was much more water this trip so the falls were even more spectacular.In Cambodia, Overstreet skipped the side trip to the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat.“Angkor Wat is very impressive,” she said. “For hundreds of years, the ruins were covered by jungle growth. When they were discovered it was a great find. I’ve seen the ruins several times so I decided to stay behind in Phnom Penh and visit the Royal Palace Gardens and the National Museum. I’m glad that I did. What I saw was very impressive. Almost unbelievable.”Of course, Overstreet did a little shopping on the side and picked up mementos for herself and a few things for her children and grandchildren.Back home now, she has begun to contemplate where she will go next. But one thing is for sure, her plans will include another working vacation.“With working vacations, I hope to do some good,” Overstreet said with a smile. “I hope to help a little. Maybe I have.”Overstreet has been taking vacations, both working and pure pleasure, since 1989. She has traveled to countries in Southeast Asia, South America, Africa, Europe and Central Asia. She has toured Australia and New Zealand and every state in the United States except a couple in New England.She has no favorite country but she does single out Colorado as the prettiest state.“The Rocky Mountains in the West really stand out and the Appalachian Mountains are pretty, too, but not as impressive as the Rockies,” she said. “Every country and every place is special. I want to see them all.” You Might Like Four distinctive Troy artists on display at Johnson Center The Grand Opening of the Holman and Ethel Johnson Center for the Arts on Sept. 14 will feature four local… read more Published 10:00 pm Saturday, September 20, 2008 Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

first_imgAspects of the breeding biology of the whitc‐chinned petrel Procellaria aequinoctialis were studied at South Georgia. Laying, hatching and fledging dates, together with egg and adult measurements, rate of weight loss of eggs and incubating adults and data on the duration of incubation shifts were recorded. Chick growth in weight, tarsus length, culmen length and wing length from hatching to fledging was followed in detail and breeding success and causes of mortality documented. Comparisons are made with other populations of the species, other members of the genus Procellaria and other Procellariiformes. Despite being the largest burrow‐nesting petrel in the world, P. aequinoctialis conforms well to the overall relationships between body weight and breeding parameters for Procellariiformes in general.last_img read more
