The previous state of the apartment belonged to a way of living incompatible with the requirements of the new owner. These new requirements, even starting from the domestic conventionality, left enough freedom to treat the new apartment in a less corseted way. Therefore, the new proposal starts from the total demolition of the pre-existing situation, keeping only the structural system (for technical and economic reasons, structural interventions were ruled out).Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Model 01Save this picture!© José HeviaThe proposal introduces two L-shaped elements that encompass those functions that the new owner, a single man, required with a certain independence: a first L-shape partition, oriented towards the access, houses the kitchen area; and a second L-shape partition houses the bedroom spaces with bathroom en suite. The rest of the space is intended to flow freely inside, to maximize the sense of space and abolish the boundaries between rooms: for example, both the bedroom and the guest bathroom are closed with large oversized pivoting doors, from floor to ceiling, with no perimeter frames. This means that the partitions are not only interrupted when arriving at the doors gaps(there are no lintels), but when they open, the communication is total and the space sneaks through, extending the common spaces to these rooms whose use is expected to be occasional , thus avoiding that they remain closed and residual.Save this picture!PlanSimilarly, the study area is an ambiguous space that connects to the common spaces through a new pivoting door, similar to the previous ones, but this time of glass, which in turn connects to the bedroom through two large sliding doors that also do not reach the ceiling, and that in their composition of different types of glass, draw superimposed figures that blur the dominant axes of the rooms.Save this picture!© José HeviaThis spatial treatment of blurring the boundaries is the same as that of the areas of the two L-shaped elements mentioned above: the kitchen is focused towards the entrance, but at the same time it is separated from it with an independent partition, cladded with a large mirror that blurs the narrowest passage to the kitchen; and simultaneously it opens into the living room through an island that exceeds its limits. Likewise, the bedroom has been undone in several rooms; the anteroom of the same is the study area, communicated with the bed area (separated by the sliding glass doors but communicated by the top of them), and the bathroom is accessed from the bed area, this space more secluded and private.Save this picture!© José HeviaThe material treatment accompanies the spatial concept, insinuating the position of each use in rooms that otherwise have no defined boundaries. Although the kitchen is housed in a more or less recognizable room, its color is black, and golden details in brass (the faucet, the sink) contrast the black surfaces; the large pivoting doors of the guest rooms are lacquered in black, and their handles again in brass, highlighting the interruption of the white walls; the bathroom suite is completely black, a mix of ceramic, granite, microcement and black varnish, and with taps, sinks and other accessories all in black.Save this picture!Axonometric explodedOn the contrary, the guest bathroom has the opposite treatment, here the granite, the microcement and the varnish are all white, although the wash basin and faucets are kept in black. The sliding and pivoting doors of iron and glass draw figures that blur the axes, but also mark areas of privacy and more visible areas. The lighting fixtures play alternating blacks and whites; the furniture is made of white lacquered wood and all the handles are black. Even the new flooring of the exterior terrace, whose walls had to preserve the original color, mark a perimeter band of white microcement that inside receives a fragmented black tiling, as an exterior carpet.Save this picture!© José HeviaTwo bands of brass cover the edges of the two L-shaped elements that organize the interior, highlighting its spatial importance, and its independence from the rest of the partitions.Save this picture!© José HeviaProject gallerySee allShow lessSouth Harbor School / JJW ArkitekterSelected ProjectsStamford Hill / StockwoolSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Gràcia, Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

GivenGain adds Teams function to its fundraising platform

first_imgWATCH: raise money for charity this holiday and in 2018[youtube][/youtube] Teams, like individual users, can use GivenGain to fundraise for one charity or for more than one.Marius Maré, GivenGain’s marketing manager, explained the value of Teams, saying: “GivenGain Teams is pitched at event organisers and corporate social investment [CSI] managers around the globe and works by leveraging the personal networks of staff or event participants fundraising together for any charity registered on GivenGain.”Peer-to-peer fundraising functions are not new, and nor are those focused on employee fundraising networks. But they can be effective, maximising the sense of competition, often with gamification techniques.“The average GivenGain fundraiser raises $500, so if a Team gets 1,000 supporters, it can raise $500,000,” added Maré.How to use TeamsA Team fundraising organiser must first register on GivenGain to create a Team fundraising page.Team members are then invited to start individual fundraising projects linked to the account and to share it with their family and friends to ask for donations. Specific charities can be linked as beneficiaries, either by the organiser or Team members.GivenGain allows donors to give in eight currencies. Since 2001, GivenGain has helped more than 2,100 charities to raise more than $34 million from over 145,000 donors in 193 countries. Charity partners include WWF, Unicef, Habitat for Humanity, The Red Cross, Missing Children and MSF.The GivenGain Foundation is nonprofit organisation registered in Switzerland, with offices in the USA, UK, South Africa and Switzerland.  220 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Dadurch entsteht ein neues Maß an Flexibilität und Effizienz bei der Bündelung von Datenströmen im Zugangsbereich der Netze. Am anderen Ende der Skala wandelt der MicroMux™ Quattro 400GbE-Steckplätze in vier einzelne 100GbE-Schnittstellen um und reduziert so Kosten und Komplexität im Kernnetzbereich. Das einzigartige Portfolio an standardkonformen, steckbaren Multiplexern bietet eine Möglichkeit, optische Datenübertragung in Zugangs- und Weitverkehrsnetzen sowie bei der Kopplung von Rechenzentren kostengünstig zu skalieren und gleichzeitig die Anforderungen vorhandener Gerätetechnik zu erfüllen. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: Die MicroMux™-Technologie von ADVA hilft Betreibern, das volle Potenzial ihrer Aggregationsgeräte auszuschöpfen (Photo: Business Wire) „Unser umfassendes Portfolio an steckbaren Multiplexern ermöglicht einen neuen Ansatz zur Erweiterung der Infrastruktur. Es versetzt Betreiber in die Lage, bestehende Gerätetechnik mit neuester Innovation in Einklang zu bringen, frühere Investitionen zu schützen und gleichzeitig zukunftssicheren Netzausbau zu gewährleisten. Mit unserer MicroMux™-Serie müssen keine kompletten Systeme mehr ausgetauscht oder teure und sperrige Geräte hinzugefügt werden. Betreiber können problemlos 10Gbit/s-, 100Gbit/s- oder 400Gbit/s-Schnittstellen neuester Generation in mehrere Schnittstellen mit niedrigeren Datenraten zur Anbindung bestehender Geräte umwandeln, ohne den Platzbedarf zu erhöhen“, sagte Stephan Rettenberger, SVP, Marketing und Investor Relations, ADVA. „Die heutige Markteinführung unterstreicht die Bedeutung unserer offenen optischen Technologie für eine Branche, die mit einer rasant steigenden Datennachfrage und anspruchsvollen Zielen beim Leistungsverbrauch, den Kosten und einer einfachen Bedienung zu kämpfen hat. Jetzt gibt es eine Plug-and-Play-Lösung für alle Aggregationsanforderungen, die eine reibungslose Aufrüstung der bestehenden Infrastruktur ermöglicht, ohne Kompromisse bei Platzbedarf, Leistung oder spektraler Effizienz einzugehen. Mit unserer neuen MicroMux™-Familie können Betreiber eine Kombination unterschiedlicher Datenraten höchst effizient nutzen.“ Der ADVA MicroMux™ Nano ist das erste Gerät seiner Art, das speziell für die Bündelung von Datenströmen im Zugangsbereich entwickelt wurde. Der Layer-2-Ethernet-Multiplexer lässt sich einfach in vorhandenen SFP+-Steckplätzen betreiben, wodurch aus einer 10GbE-Schnittstelle zehn 1GbE-Schnittstellen werden, ohne dass zusätzliche, kostspielige Gerätetechnik installiert werden muss. Das nächstgrößere Modul der Produktfamilie ist der bekannte MicroMux™. Mehr als 10.000 Stück dieses Typs im QSFP-Formfaktor werden bereits in kommerziellen Netzen eingesetzt. Dieses Modul bietet Skalierbarkeit und Flexibilität für globale Cloud- und Internet-Service-Provider, indem es eine 100GbE-Schnittstelle in zehn 10GbE-Schnittstellen umwandelt. Als dritter Modultyp, entwickelt für höchste Datenraten im Kern der Netze, aggregiert der ADVA MicroMux™ Quattro vier Datenströme mit Datenraten von 100Gbit/s zu einem 400GbE-Signal. Mit QSFP-Formfaktor kann dieses Modul in entsprechenden Steckplätzen betrieben werden und benötig somit keinen zusätzlichen Platz. Alle drei MicroMux™-Module sind extrem einfach zu implementieren und bieten eine erhebliche Steigerung der Schnittstellendichte, so dass keine ungenutzte Übertragungsbandbreite und keine Reduktion der Gesamtsystemkapazität entstehen. „Unsere MicroMux™-Reihe ist das Ergebnis einer engen Zusammenarbeit mit führenden Netzbetreibern. Sie wollen mit einer Lösung sowohl bestehende als auch zukünftige Anforderungen erfüllen. Mehr als 10.000 verkaufte MicroMux™-Module der ersten Generation sind bereits im Einsatz. Unsere steckbaren Muxponder helfen Netzbetreibern auf der ganzen Welt, die dringendsten Herausforderungen in Bezug auf Kosten und Skalierung zu meistern und gleichzeitig ein echtes Pay-as-you-grow-Modell für die Erweiterung ihrer Netze zu implementieren“, kommentierte Ross Saunders, GM, Optical Engines, ADVA. „Unsere MicroMux™-Technologie macht es einfach, die Datenraten einzelner Verbindungen zu erhöhen, ohne das gesamte System austauschen zu müssen. Außerdem haben die Module eine hervorragende Energieeffizienz und sind in mehreren Varianten erhältlich, um alle Entfernungen und Fasertypen abdecken zu können. Egal, ob es sich um Single- oder Multimode-Glasfasern über kurze, mittlere oder lange Strecken handelt – mit der erweiterten MicroMux™-Familie stehen Netzbetreibern nun alle Werkzeuge zur Verfügung, um Platzbedarf, Stromverbrauch und Betriebskosten zu optimieren.“ Weitere Informationen zum MicroMux™ Nano finden Sie in diesem Video: In diesem Video erfahren sie mehr über den MicroMux™ Quattro: Weitere Details zur MicroMux™-Familie entnehmen Sie dieser Präsentation: Über ADVA Innovation und der Ansporn, unsere Kunden erfolgreich zu machen, bilden das Fundament von ADVA.

Former Ithaca rail station declared a local landmark

first_img Tagged: common council, Delaware Lackawanna & Western Railroad Station, ilpc, PEDC Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] or 607-391-0328. More by Devon Magliozzi ITHACA, N.Y. – The former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Station at 701 W. Seneca St. is officially a local landmark, following a unanimous vote from Common Council. The building is representative of the Prairie School style of architecture and was built in 1912 by prominent architect Frank J. Nies. The historic designation was recommended by the Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission and the Planning and Economic Development Committee prior to Wednesday’s Common Council meeting. Devon Magliozzi Related: Former Ithaca rail station close to historic designation after PEDC approval By declaring the building a local landmark, council affirmed “it possesses special character or historic or aesthetic interest or value as part of the cultural, political, economic, or social history of the locality, region, state, or nation,” embodies a distinct architectural style, and is the work of an influential designer. As the city weighs future uses for the building, its designation as a local landmark will ensure that changes are compatible with the site’s historic character. The building served as an intercity bus station for many years until September. Council member Seph Murtagh, who chairs PEDC, said a tour of the now vacant site helped highlight the building’s architectural features. Before voting for the designation, he said, “Seeing it in a fresh light – not as a bus station, but seeing its historic details – I’m proud to support it.” Christine O’Malley, preservation services coordinator for Historic Ithaca, voiced the organization’s support for the historic designation during public comment. “The building has great potential for adaptive reuse,” she said.last_img read more

e-vangelist: human factors that are vital to success

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article e-vangelist: human factors that are vital to successOn 10 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today When it comes to e-business and Internet projects, please disregard the hype, hysteria and consultancy-speak. The critical success factors for these projects are exactly the same as for other IT related projects. The scale may be greater, the stakes higher and the speed faster, but the issues are the same. What caused failure before will do so again. In fact, a staggering nine out of 10 IT and e-projects fail to be delivered on time, within budget and meeting the real needs of the organisation.All initiatives – e- and otherwise – have two elements: people and process. Many IT professionals will claim people are more important, as they rush off to install the latest software. But project success comes down to people, people and people, not technology, methodologies, nor lines of code. For this reason, the HR department has a huge influence over e-initiatives.Decide now that on all your projects people will come first and you will be a champion of the new business age. Put a group of unstoppable talent in a room and anything is possible. Drown them with milestones, software and e-terminology, and the chances of failure increase dramatically. So, what can you do as an HR leader? Looking across a range of Internet projects, I have drawn together the following critical success factors – all based around people: Culture HR directors need to help to establish a common language among the project team – free of jargon. Otherwise, you risk alienating people.Informal communication For successful IT-based projects, decisions are never made in monthly project reviews. The real, honest, open discussions and action take place between colleagues, each and every day.TrustEvery member of a team must value their colleagues whether they like each other or not. Any conflicts that emerge have to be resolved, even if this means bringing in a facilitator. Ownership Get commitment from the highest level. But also ensure that everyone involved buys into the project at a deep personal level – in other words, putting their name on it.Focus Never lose sight of the deadline. A project manager I know treats projects as if he was preparing for the first night of a play. A paying audience is expecting results on a set date, so the play has to be ready on that day, and has to be outstanding. Collective responsibility Something often lacking in the project failures I have analysed. The key test of whether HR and IT are working in partnership is when things are not going so well. That is the time to stick together. MotivationIT departments realise their future is as an enabler to bring together people and technology. They have to work with other departments. Harness this asset for the benefit of the business. By David Taylor, president of the association of IT directors, Certus. [email protected] Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for Antarctica

first_imgTo date, Antarctica is the only continent to have escaped the COVID-19 pandemic. This was facilitated by the continent’s isolation and low human presence, combined with the global emergence of the pandemic at the end of the Antarctic summer season and the rapid action of those national governmental operators and other actors still active on and around the continent during the early phases of the outbreak. Here, we consider the implications of the pandemic for Antarctic governance, national operator logistics, science, tourism and the fishing industry, as well as for Antarctic environmental protection. Global disruption will result in a temporary decrease in human activity in Antarctica, in turn leading to a reduction in environmental impacts for a period, but also a reduced capacity to respond to environmental incidents. Given the diversity of transmission routes and vectors, preventing the introduction of the virus will be difficult, even with stringent quarantine procedures in place, and the risks and implications of virus transmission to Antarctic wildlife are largely unknown. With control of the pandemic a major global challenge, international cooperation will be essential if Antarctica is to remain free of coronavirus.last_img read more

Sunak reveals extra £7.1 billion to boost house building…but what about stamp duty?

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Sunak reveals extra £7.1 billion to boost house building…but what about stamp duty? previous nextHousing MarketSunak reveals extra £7.1 billion to boost house building…but what about stamp duty?Chancellor reveals eye-watering debt and extra spending following pandemic, but industry wonders why he ignored industry lobbying.Nigel Lewis25th November 20201 Comment1,295 Views Agents worrying what happens to the housing market and economy when the nation emerges from the shadow of Covid will have been reassured and alarmed in equal measure by Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s speech yesterday.Billed as his 2020 spending review and financial forecast it revealed the perilous position the UK finds itself in, but also set out Sunak’s spending plans, including £7.1 billion extra for house building.The figures are unsettling, nevertheless. The economy is to contract by 11.3% this year, the greatest reduction du ring peacetime for 300 years, recovering by 5.5% next year and 6.6% in 2022. And the economy will not return to ‘normal’ until the final months of 2022, he said.The government is also borrowing eye-watering sums including an estimated £394 billion this year, or 19% of GDP, followed by £164 billion next year. During 2019 it borrowed £44 billion.97% of GDPAlthough Sunak revealed that debt will reach 97% of GDP next year, he said “the cost of inaction would have been much higher” and that unemployment in the UK remains lower than many other large EU countries, peaking at 7.5% next year.The Chancellor is hoping to spend his way out of the recession, including a £7.1 billion national home building fund on top of its existing £12 billion affordable homes programme.“Today I’ve announced a huge investment in jobs, public services and infrastructure but these figures can ring hollow – the true measure of our success is that everyone in this country has the opportunity to reach their potential,” he said.But what about stamp duty, Rishi?Neil Cobbold, CEO of Payprop: “Understandably, today’s Spending Review focused on funding for public services in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, even if the property industry had hoped that the Chancellor would use the address to provide clarity on issues such as the stamp duty holiday and proposed changes to Capital Gains Tax (CGT).“A longer period for property buyers to benefit from significant tax savings would provide the market with a welcome boost as we approach the New Year and the effects of record-breaking sales volume this summer start to wear off.”Rob Houghton, CEO of Really moving: “Thousands of homebuyers up and down the country are facing the prospect of missing out on the stamp duty holiday if their purchase doesn’t complete by 31st March.The housing market has been absolutely critical in keeping the economy moving over the last few months and there’s no doubt further challenges lie ahead, with unemployment rising and economic growth in decline.“When someone moves house it’s not just the estate agent who gets paid – it’s also the solicitor, the financial advisor, the surveyor, the removals firm and often the cleaner, the electrician, the furniture shop and so on. There’s very little else that promotes spending in such a far-reaching way.”Chancellor Rishi Sunak Government Spending Review November 25, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentJames Gibbs, Gibbs Gillespie Gibbs Gillespie 26th November 2020 at 9:09 amLots of people get paid when people move home. The first time buyer might spend £5,000 in IKEA, but on a older house it could be a £100,000. On average around £50,000. Think, electricians, plumbers, window firms, kitchens, carpets, curtains, small builders, and furniture. A healthy housing market is massively important to a vibrant economy. When the housing market stalls, recession is here. But interest rates are low, immigration is high, people working from home need better facilities.
