In the construction of the Busca Vida House, the constructive and environmental affinities that arose between the owner and architect, started from the earliest stages of the project. Mainly the existing vegetation dictated the deployment of this residence. It was both the owner and the architect interest to preserve as many trees as possible, resulting in the removal of only one small tree. The design of the house, located in Camaçari, northern coast of Bahia, was laid out with contemporary lines, utilizing natural ventilation and sun light through large glass panels.Save this picture!© Tarso Figueira and Luis GomesTo fulfill the desire of the owner to receive friends, and at the same time not to have her privacy jeopardized, the program was distributed in two separate pavilions. The first, designed exclusively for the owner, has a suite, living room and dining room, a small kitchen, a pantry, storage and service area. The second one has three suites to receive friends. The interconnection between the two happens through a covered social area with common usage, which was installed in an inviting gourmet kitchen. Aligned to the first pavilion, are located the deck and pool area allowing the expansion and integration of the internal area, summing up to 445m2 of built area.Save this picture!© Tarso Figueira and Luis GomesBy the characteristics of the site, the foundation of the house were executed in reinforced concrete, detached from the soil, eliminating moisture problems, and improving the natural ventilation system. On this basis of concrete, the material specified to play the role of structure was Cumaru wood, which constitutes the pillars, beams and roof. The ventilation system also received attention. The wooden structure was designed with a system of two beams around the perimeter of the pavilions. In the lower beam were fixed sliding glass panels, while the upper structure supports the roof. Between these wooden beams mosquito screens are placed allowing cross ventilation to occur throughout the house, even when the glass panels are closed.Project gallerySee allShow lessMilitary Base / A-labArticlesRadiance / PROJECTiONEArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/64730/busca-vida-house-andre-luque Clipboard Photographs Busca Vida House / André LuqueSave this projectSaveBusca Vida House / André Luquelast_img read more

Journalist threatened at Bouaké

The international press freedom organisation called on Communications minister Guillaume Soro, secretary general of opposition Ivory Coast Patriotic Movement (MPCI) to issue a strongly condemnation of the threats. Coulibaly told Reporters Without Borders on 20 December that MPCI spokesman, Sidiki Konaté, had threatened him by phone, telling him that he was becoming “a nuisance” and advising him to think carefully about what he said. These threats may well be linked to the publication of an interview by the journalist with rebel chief Bamba Kassoum, in the 20 December edition of L’Inter under the headline “Bamba Kassoum or “Kass” (rebel leader) “The rebellion has not achieved its objectives”. Coulibaly told Reporters Without Borders that he was worried about his safety given the current crisis in the country and that he was based in the rebel-held northern part of the country.

Storms Filled 37 Percent of State’s Snow-Water Deficit, JPL-Assisted Research Shows

Darker colors indicate more water. The inset bar graph in the center figure shows the annual snowpack water storage relative to the pre-drought average as well as the cumulative snow-water deficit. The map on right shows snowpack water storage on Jan. 24 as a percentage of pre-drought average snowpack water storage at its greatest. Areas in green are over 100 percent of average. Credit: CU/NASAResearchers from the University of Colorado Boulder, using computer models developed with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA space imagery and ground-sensor data from the California Department of Water Resources in Sacramento, have come up with an estimate of how much water two recent powerful storms in the state have dumped on the Sierra Nevada range in January.From the estimate, the researchers now say the storms, part of the “atmospheric river” weather patterns that pummeled the state from late December to late January, may have recouped 37 percent of California’s five-year snow-water deficit.Snow-water deficit is the deficit in water stored in snowpack in the mountains now compared with the annual average water stored before the drought began in 2012.On average, the state experienced a snow-water deficit of approximately 10.8-million acre feet per year during the drought years of 2012 through 2016. The total deficit over that five-year period is roughly 54 million acre feet. The recent storms appear to have reduced that total by roughly 37 percent in less than one month, the researchers say.“Early in the January storm cycle, lower mountain elevations received some rain, but the vast majority of the mountain precipitation has come as snow – which is exactly the way we need this precipitation,” Thomas Painter, a snow scientist at JPL, and principal investigator of NASA’s Airborne Snow Observatory, said. “As snow, it releases to reservoirs and ecosystems more gradually and efficiently over the summer months.”Noah Molotch, a JPL research scientist who heads the University of Colorado Boulder’s Center for Water Earth Science and Technology (CWEST) and leader of the study, cautioned that there is still a long way to go before California makes up its snow-water deficit completely.“When the snow stopped falling five years ago, the state had to tap into its groundwater reserves to keep up,” Molotch said. “One snowy winter won’t be able to entirely reverse that, but there is, at least, some cautious optimism.”Molotch also indicated that the recent storms also brought some flood risk although it did bring much-needed snow.“The concern moving forward relates to what happens with the weather for the rest of the winter,” said Molotch. “Reservoirs across the Sierra foothills are now relatively full. If we get another intense atmospheric river with warmer air temperatures, that could lead to melting of the snowpack, and the risk for rain-induced flooding is considerable.”David Rizzardo, chief of Snow Surveys and Water Supply Forecasting for the California Department of Water Resources, said the start of winter has been the best California has seen since 2011.“It gives water managers hope for relief from what has been a historically dry five-year period,” Rizzardo said.The Department will now use the JPL and CWEST data to fine-tune vital seasonal runoff estimates, used by water managers and reservoir operators across the state. Results of the most recent snow survey will be released on February 2, the Department said.

Councillors blasted over Aughinish explosions

Rathkeale fundraiser for vital Cancer services Rusal Aughinish on Aughinish Island, Askeaton.“IF we are electing councillors who are putting the health of communities at risk then something must be done to address it.”That was the message from Cappagh Farmers Support Group spokesman, Pat Geoghegan who claims that councillors in Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District have ignored requests to meet with local people over rock-blasting at Rusal Aughinish in Askeaton.A letter was sent to the six area local representatives — Mayor Stephen Keary (FG), Cllr Adam Teskey (FG), Cllr Kevin Sheahan (FF), Cllr Ciara McMahon (SF), Cllr Emmett O’Brien (IND) and Cllr Richard O’Donoghue (IND) — on September 26 last and, according to Mr Geoghegan, “not one councillor has taken up the offer”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cappagh Farmers Support Group invited the councillors to a meeting, which was also to be attended by Limerick Against Pollution (LAP) and Rescue the River Shannon Group. Both Claire Keating of LAP and Jim Long of the Rescue group also wrote to councillors requesting a meeting to brief them of the dangers of blasting at Aughinish Island.“Not one councillor has taken up the offer especially since they gave everyone the impression that they were mislead about Gortadroma. If they don’t want to know the dangers here then they clearly didn’t want to know the dangers in Gortadroma,” Mr Geoghegan told the Limerick Post.“Its all about to facilitate the Council for €4 million per year. If we are electing councillors who are putting the health of communities at risk, then something must be done to address it,” he declared.The Cappagh Farmers Support Group believe that Rusal’s burrow pit proposal will have a life-long detrimental impact on fauna, wildlife, marine life, birds, and the natural environment.“Our objection clearly outlines the dangers of blasting rock to a depth of 8 metres and 4.5 hectare in size next to Red Mud Ponds, storing approximately 40 million tonnes of toxic waste. We would like to brief councillors and the Mayor himself of the dangers to this proposal,” Mr Geoghegan explained.“We have shown the total failure by Aughinish to carry out a proper public consultation process along with many other alarming issues, that have been ignored in this application by Aughinish Alumina.“If Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, Independents, and Sinn Féin can come together to protect Aughinish and the Council, it leaves no independent voice to represent the community.”Sinn Fein representative for the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District, Cllr Ciara McMahon this week told the Limerick Post that she has spoken with Mr Geoghegan on the issue and has “no problem meeting them”.“I have read the information they have sent me. I see no reason as to why we can’t have a deputation from the group,” she said.There was no further response from any of the other five area representatives at the time of going to print.by Alan [email protected] TAGSAskeatonCappagh Farmers Support GroupCllr Adam TeskeyCllr Ciara McMahonCllr Emmett O’BrienCllr Kevin SheahanCllr Richard O’DonoghueCllr Stephen KearyFine GaelGortadromalimerickLimerick Against Pollution (LAP)Limerick City and Council CouncilMunicipal District of Adare-RathkealeRusal Aughinish Minister Patrick O’ Donovan announces opening of Limerick heritage site to the public for the first time Advertisement Email Twitter Facebook Askeaton/ Ballysteen bring Easter joy to local community NewsBreaking newsCouncillors blasted over Aughinish explosionsBy Alan Jacques – February 1, 2018 2322 Linkedin Pedestrian crossing falls ‘out of the sky’ in Pallaskenry Calls to clean the River Deel in Rathkeale Previous articleSomething for the weekend…Next articleThree arty treats for your Valentine’s date Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR New mayor wants to replace Brown Thomas with a fountain read more
