Algarve, in the South of Portugal does not only live by the sea. Proof of this is the village of São Bartolomeu de Messines, municipality of Silves – located in the interior of the Algarve, far from the mass tourism that occupies the whole coast, and privileged by the mountains that surround the whole region.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe history of São Bartolomeu de Messines refers to 1180, originally populated by Arabs, when D. Sancho I conquered Silves.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIt is in this remote village that our project is located. Surrounded by valleys, mountains and two reservoirs, the dam of Funcho and the dam of Arade.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe “House of Messines”, is based on an existing building, already in ruins, but with a fantastic orientation East-West, and with a rhythm of openings for light source already very inviting. The fact that there was a built structure was the only reason we were able to emerge such a work in this picturesque place.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGDue to the diverse bureaucratic restrictions of implantation, it was mandatory to “overlay” the project to the existing ruin, extending its body in the longitudinal axis towards South.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGPrivileging the views and natural light, the rhythm of windows were recreated in the East facade, opening completely and leaving a hovering corner when the volume folds to north.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe interior of the house is a large space that prioritizes fluidity and communication in the social area (living room, dining room and kitchen), but closes and limits its access in the private area where the bedrooms are located as well as the service entrance.As a form of respect for the surroundings and not to obstruct more than necessary, we chose to locate the pool on the rooftop, in a volume which doesn’t touch the ground, and is completely suspended in the air. This decision guarantees a total access to the rooftop as a second social area of the house, privileging the magnificent 360º views, even being inside the pool. “COPY” CopyAbout this officeVitor Vilhena ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureConcreteSão Bartolomeu de MessinesPortugalPublished on February 20, 2019Cite: “House in Messines / Vitor Vilhena Architects” [Casa em Messines / Vitor Vilhena Architects] 20 Feb 2019.

The first question: how to design on such a dramatic landscape, with an unusual balance between nature, agriculture and traditional architecture? Our strategy was to interfere as little as possible: one enters the house in the upper part of the plot, through a wall that evokes the region’s traditional slate buildings, and descends onto the house’s core – a social space split in 2 levels. From this space, the house’s volume breaks and extends along the topography in a subtle yet effective separation between social and intimate i.e. every space sits on a different level and has direct access to the outside. We may say that instead of a house in the landscape we thought of a house from the landscape, as though building a walk in the countryside.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoSave this picture!ModelSave this picture!© Nelson GarridoBeyond the romantic notion of a well-grounded house, extensive contact with the ground gives enormous energy benefits: we use the earth’s endless thermal mass to balance air thermal amplitudes throughout the day and seasons. The patio between the living room and the master bedroom is also a passive thermal device: it creates a thermal differential between the swimming pool and the patio, which generates an ascending air flow across the house for cooling in spring and summer, and it allows intensive insulation of the most innermost point in the house in autumn and winter.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoSave this picture!Section 02Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoProject gallerySee allShow lessOpen Call: Conceptual Urban and Architectural Design of Independence Square in Podgo…Built Projects & MasterplansMarco Restaurant / FMJPC Arquitetura e designSelected Projects Share ArchDaily “COPY” Projects Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783612/casa-na-gateira-camarim-arquitectos Clipboard Area: 403 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House in Gateira / Camarim ArquitectosSave this projectSaveHouse in Gateira / Camarim Arquitectos Portugal Houses CopyHouses•Portugal Save this picture!© Nelson Garrido+ 37Curated by Matheus Pereira Share 2014 House in Gateira / Camarim Arquitectos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783612/casa-na-gateira-camarim-arquitectos Clipboard Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeCamarim ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIcebergPortugalPublished on August 08, 2020Cite: “House in Gateira / Camarim Arquitectos” 08 Aug 2020.

Turkey’s already worrying media situation has become critical since then. Ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s latest World Press Freedom Index, it is now the world’s biggest prison for professional journalists, while around 150 media outlets have been closed, reducing pluralism to a handful of embattled newspapers.President Macron promised yesterday that he would “in a few days continue to raise with Turkey the situation of journalists who are imprisoned and prevented from practising their profession.”“President Macron, we are counting on you to keep your promise and to firmly request the restoration of pluralism in Turkey and the release of journalists who are unjustly imprisoned,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“President Erdoğan’s strategy of maintaining tension, which electrifies the political climate and prevents a democratic public debate, is fraught with danger both for Turkey and for Europe. It is liable to increase instability and accentuate the deep fracture lines in a very polarized society. It is in no one’s interest to allow Turkey to become so unpredictable.”Most of Turkey’s imprisoned journalists are being held pending the outcome of their trials. Some have already been held for more than a year. They include Ahmet Şık, an investigative reporter who was cut short after speaking for two minutes during his last court appearance and was expelled from the courtroom; Şahin Alpay, a 73-year-old editorialist who has been held for more than 500 days despite having heart problems; and Ahmet Altan, a well-known commentator who is facing the possibility of three jail terms for supposedly sending “subliminal messages” during a TV appearance.Most of the imprisoned journalists are accused of links to terrorist groups or complicity in the coup attempt – charges that carry possible life sentences. But in practice, criticizing the government, working for a “suspect” media outlet, contacting a sensitive source or using an encrypted messaging app are all regarded by the courts as grounds for imprisoning a journalist without having to prove any individual involvement in criminal activity. to go further News April 28, 2021 Find out more News January 4, 2018 Turkish president, about to visit France, must stop crushing media freedom Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Help by sharing this information News News April 2, 2021 Find out more read more
Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Police arrested a 28-year-old man Thursday afternoon minutes after he allegedly robbed a Pasadena ARTS bus driver at knifepoint and took the victim’s wallet.The incident happened near a bus stop in the 700 block of N. Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena at about 4:55 p.m.Pasadena Police Lt. John Mercado said the suspect was identified later as Manuel Urena, a Pasadena resident. Police reportedly found a three-inch folding knife in the suspect’s possession when he was arrested.The bus driver is a Los Angeles resident in his early 30s.“The driver was stopped at a bus stop on his route, when the suspect entered the bus without a shirt on,” Mercado said. “The driver told the suspect that he needed to have a shirt on to ride the bus. At which point, the suspect pulled out a knife, pointed it at the victim and demanded his wallet.”Out of concern for his own safety, the driver was forced to give his wallet to the suspect.Mercado said officers arrived quickly at the scene and saw the suspect still in the area. They arrested him without incident.“The victim positively identified the suspect as the one who had just robbed him,” Mercado said.Police recovered the stolen wallet from the suspect and gave it back to the bus driver.

As far as dress and gown designs by Texans, it’s something he found hadn’t really been done.“When I went to grad school (at Texas Tech) for museum science, I did art for half of it and I did textiles for the other half,” Zies said. “So it’s really fun when I get to go back and do textiles — especially for us, for this museum. We’ve done a lot of textile exhibitions and they’re always our more popular shows.”Leese, and husband and Hendershot’s father Robert Leese, attended Friday’s opening reception because Hendershot couldn’t make it. “So we took a lot of photos,” he said.The two floors dedicated to the Celebrate Texas exhibit are attached to the museum’s Permian Basin Juried Art Exhibit, which features West Texas artists and explores the theme of ‘metamorphosis’ through June 29.“Usually if you hear West Texas artists, you think cowboys, mountains,” said Olga Nedorub, of Midland, standing in the juried art exhibit but speaking to the creativity in both.“I think it speaks to the fact that it’s celebrating Texas, not in the scenery of Texas, not the culture of Texas, but the people who live in Texas and their talents and what those people want to do,” she added. “I think it’s more about artists themselves vs. a theme.”The Celebrate Texas exhibit — with all its variety and range — is on display through to Sept. 2.“I thought Daniel did a really good job (as curator), because he paired the very serious and also the very historical with the fun and the aspirational,” Perry said.“No matter what you like, and what you think celebrating Texas should be about, there’s going to be something for you.” Facebook Local News ‘Texas spirit and determination’: Ellen Noel Art Museum’s Celebrate Texas exhibit opens Pinterest Celebrate Texas: Art & Fashion exhibit attendees observe dresses Friday at the Ellen Noel Art Museum.

Print This Post Fannie Mae has announced that it has secured commitments for two front-end Credit Insurance Risk Transfer (CIRT) transactions. CIRT FE 2020-1 and CIRT FE 2020-2 together cover up to $39.6 billion in unpaid principal balance of 21-year to 30-year original-term, fixed-rate loans, including loans previously acquired from November 2019 through January 2020 and also loans to-be acquired between February 2020 and January 2021. Combined, these two deals transfer up to $1.3 billion of mortgage credit risk, as part of Fannie Mae’s ongoing effort to reduce taxpayer risk by increasing the role of private capital in the mortgage market. To date, Fannie Mae has committed to acquire approximately $12.9 billion of insurance coverage on $475 billion of single-family loans through the CIRT program, measured at the time of issuance, for both post-acquisition (bulk) and front-end transactions.“CIRT FE 2020-1 and FE 2020-2 secure approximately $729 million and $600 million of coverage, respectively. Both are record-high levels of coverage for a low and high loan-to-value ratio CIRT transaction. These transactions were executed in March, prior to the enormous changes that have since impacted our economy and our daily lives. We appreciate our partnership with the 20 insurers and reinsurers that wrote coverage for these deals, and hope that they, their co-workers, and families all stay safe during this global crisis. These participating insurers and reinsurers have Fannie Mae’s commitment that we will use all of our resources to assist borrowers through temporary hardships related to COVID-19, and that we are adjusting our credit guidelines for lender partners to manage the risk of our new acquisitions while ensuring we meet our mission to provide liquidity to the mortgage market,” said Rob Schaefer, VP for Credit Enhancement Strategy & Management at Fannie Mae.Coverage for these deals is provided based upon actual losses for a term of 13 years. Depending on the paydown of the insured pool and the principal amount of insured loans that become seriously delinquent, the aggregate coverage amount may be reduced at the 18th month following the effective date and each month thereafter. The coverage on each deal may be canceled by Fannie Mae at any time on or after the 5 and a half-year anniversary following the effective date by paying a cancellation fee.

Pacific Marine Mammal Center(LOS ANGELES) — A California sea lion found on a beach with pellet gunshot wounds was euthanized as officials search for who was responsible, officials announced on Tuesday.Employees at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center rescued the female sea lion after it was found in distress on Newport Beach on Dec. 16 after being reported by animal control, the center said in a press release.The 1 1/2 year-old sea lion, named Mandalorian by rescuers, was found to have two gunshots in the chest, most likely from a pellet rifle, the press release stated.Mandalorian was monitored for a week and received treatment, but its health continued to decline. It was “humanely euthanized” on Dec. 22, the center said.A necropsy done on Mandalorian showed one of the bullets was “between the rib and adjacent vertebrae” and the wound “most likely became infected, leading to severe muscle necrosis around the impact site and an accumulation of fluid in the chest cavity,” officials said.The second pellet was lodged in the mammal’s muscles between its ribs.The pellets were recovered and sent to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service Office of Law Enforcement for additional investigation.“Unfortunately, what we saw is taking place up and down the Pacific Coast. These are disgusting and intentional acts, many of which are pre-meditated. We know there are many out there that feel like they are competing with the sea lions for the same resources,” said Peter Chang, CEO of the center. “However, there’s a pathway for us to cohabitate with these precious marine mammals, and shooting them is not the way.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
