On a river bank, at the bottom of a valley, open to distant cliffs, this simple house shows us closed as a box to keeping small treasures: the first morning sun, the church tower view at the other side of the river, the precipitous cliffs, the maze of trunks of riparian forest… All possessions jealously guarded by the house without knowing that, in fact, is she who belongs to them.Save this picture!© Marc TorraIn this place, we propose a concrete cube that relates to its environment with minimal gestures. Four bites in four opposite corners of the house resolves relations with the outside. Ground floor corner breaks lead to two porches: the one on the corner south prolongs the living room and the kitchen over the garden and, on the northern corner, it generates space for vehicles and access for the house. On the first floor, the breakings generate two terraces for the bedrooms and two skylights for the ground floor.Save this picture!© Marc TorraRough as peach skin, it is only when we bite this fruit of concrete when we discover all the hidden sweetness inside.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessFried Pavillion / Amunt Architekten Martenson und Nagel TheissenSelected ProjectsGertopan House / Laboratorio de ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Photographs “COPY” 2012 Houses CopyAbout this officearnau estudi d’arquitecturaOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSant Feliu de PallerolsHousesSpainPublished on September 24, 2013Cite: “Bitten House / arnau estudi d’arquitectura” 24 Sep 2013.

The majority of the incidents responded to by the Fire Service, backed by Gardaí, related to fallen trees, structural damage to buildings and road traffic incidents.Staff from the Council’s Roads, Environment, Housing and Parks Departments also helped clear fallen trees and debris from roads,  public amenity areas and parks. Elsewhere, Limerick Civil Defence assisted the HSE in relocating patients from the University of Limerick Hospital to various other locations during the storm, while Water Services staff worked around the clock to restore water supplies to areas affected by power outages.Mayor Kathleen Leddin said the regular participation of Council staff and the Emergency Services in cross-agency response exercises had enhanced their collective ability to respond more efficiently to major incidents.County Council Cathaoirleach John Sheahan also commended Council staff and the Emergency Services for their professionalism and commitment.“Much of the work was undertaken in extremely challenging conditions and I have no doubt that their efforts ensured that the threat posed to property and indeed to life was minimised,” said Cllr Sheahan.“Last week’s severe storm, coupled with the flooding of early February in Limerick City, presented an unprecedented challenge for all emergency services personnel in Limerick.

Red Force narrowly miss out as Hurricanes hold on for a draw

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) – What appeared to be an unavoidable defeat for Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, almost ended in a victory but Leeward Islands Hurricanes held on grimly for a draw in tense moments late on the final day of their sixth-round game here on Sunday.In pursuit of 192 for victory at Warner Park, Hurricanes were seemingly cruising towards an inevitable victory at 166 for four with Test all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall (48) and captain Terrance Warde (27) involved in a 65-run fifth-wicket stand.LEG-SPINNER IMRAN KHANBut left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (4-40) and leg-spinner Imran Khan (3-44) combined to wreck the Hurricanes middle- and lower- order as five wickets fell for 17 runs in the space of 35 balls to leave the innings tottering on 183 for nine.It was then left to Devon Thomas, who had earlier retired hurt at 57 for three, to return and in combination with last-man Sheno Berridge, carried the hosts to safety.Red Force had earlier folded for 155 in their second innings after resuming the morning on 94 for six, with Cornwall finishing with career-best figures of eight for 51 with his aggressive off-spin.Joshua DaSilva, unbeaten overnight on 45, finished on 79 not out to hold the innings together, in a knock lasting 168 balls in just over 3-¼ hours with seven fours and a six.He put on 26 with Akeal Hosein (3) for the seventh wicket and 31 for the ninth wicket with Uthman Muhammad (14).Hurricanes then suffered a double blow in pursuit of their target when openers Kieran Powell and Montcin Hodge both fell for five with 19 runs on the board before Thomas put on 27 with Amir Jangoo (10) for the third wicket to halt the slide.When Thomas limped off 11 runs into a promising fourth-wicket stand with Hamilton, Warde arrived to extend the partnership to 55 and inject further hope into the Hurricanes chase.Fast bowler Anderson Phillip hit Hamilton in front to break the stand but Cornwall resisted, belting three fours and sixes in a 44-ball cameo.Warde’s dismissal, however, signalled another shift in the momentum as Red Force narrowly missed out on key points.last_img read more

Lori Loughlin pleads not guilty in admissions case

first_img“I don’t think it is ever fair to assume that because one defendant pleads guilty, then everyone else will as well,” Levenson said. “Hypothetically and theoretically, if you haven’t … talked to all the witnesses, she may be saying, ‘I did not intend or realize that we would be cheating. We came to understand that this is a procedure that is sometimes used by people and I never had an intent to defraud…’ If that’s convincing, then she would have a defensible crime.” “Fuller House” actress Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli filed a not guilty plea in the U.S. District Court on  Monday, following indictments alleging the parents paid $500,000 to bribe their daughters’ way into USC. Loughlin and Giannulli entered not guilty pleas to charges of mail fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering and waived their rights to appear in court for arraignment. Loughlin: OK. Loughlin: [inaudible] Loughlin and Giannulli are among 13 USC parents indicted in the scheme — the most of any University named in the FBI affidavit. So far, 13 other parents, including “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman, have pled guilty to the charges. Fifteen, however, did not plead guilty. According to court records, The Edge College & Career Network, a for-profit college counseling business founded by William “Rick” Singer, is accused of running the student-athlete recruitment scam. Parents across all eight universities named in the charges — including USC, UCLA and Stanford, Georgetown and Yale — allegedly paid Singer nearly $25 million to unfairly admit students. Singer — who came to serve as a cooperating witness in the FBI investigation in September — pleaded guilty to money laundering, obstruction, racketeering and conspiracy to defraud the United States March 12. Giannulli: Uh, perfect. Levenson said Singer’s guilty plea could be used as leverage to have Singer testify as a witness against parents going to trial. Giannulli: Yeah. Singer: If you ever — ever were to say anything. According to court documents, Singer and Giannulli discussed how the payments would work in a recorded phone call Oct. 25: Singer: Your donation [is] helping the girls get into USC to do — “The people who pled guilty [may end up] testifying against her,” Levenson said. “If everyone testifies against her, it will be her word against many.”center_img Singer: — crew even though they didn’t do crew. So nothing like that has been ever mentioned. Singer: And that your $400,000 was paid to our foundation to help underserved kids. Loughlin: So we — so we just — have to say we made a donation to your foundation and that’s it, end of story. Singer: So I just want to make sure our stories our the same, because — Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to get their daughters into USC. (Photo from Hallmark Channel) During a similarly audited phone call on Nov. 29, Loughlin confirmed her payments to Heinel and Singer: Singer: That is correct. Loughlin: Okay. In addition to Singer and the 13 parents who pleaded guilty, Mark Riddell, a Harvard University graduate at the center of the test-taking aspect of the scam, also pleaded guilty Friday to charges of mail fraud and money laundering. “There are several factors going on here — the evidence may not be as strong against this individual as it was against those who pled guilty,” said Laurie Levenson, a law professor at Loyola Marymount University. “They might think they actually have a defense and certainly wouldn’t want to plead guilty [and] they might feel like they are not getting as much of the benefit by pleading guilty.” Singer: OK? I just wanted to make sure that we’re on the same page in case — An FBI investigation in March revealed the parents paid senior associate athletic director Donna Heinel to create false athletic recruitment profiles for daughters Olivia Jade, a freshman majoring in psychology who maintains a large online following, and Isabella Giannulli, a sophomore majoring in communication. According to court documents, the two were both labeled as rowing recruits, despite having no experience with the sport. Both daughters are still officially enrolled at the University.last_img read more
