This 450m2 house is located in a corner lot, in a closed neighborhood of the city of Adrogué, in Buenos Aires. In the form of an “L” the house embraces the central garden from the outside towards the inside. To one side, an almost blind façade of rough concrete, in relation to the main access street of the neighborhood, closes to the traffic and to the exterior views. Towards the other street, a cul-de-sac, almost without traffic or neighbors, the facade becomes more transparent and permeable. The interior-exterior continuity, a subject that we wanted to focus on, was achieved through facades that open, slide or are perforated generating different filters that sift the light, control the visuals and give different depths and movement to this house.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe arrival at a house is always an opportunity to “celebrate the access”. In this case, with two “tropical” courtyards, a hall is caught between these two gaps articulating as well as separating the living area from the sleeping area. Both provide light and vegetation, freshness … melting the interior space with the exterior. The sleeping area required to sit on an almost blind block, in direct contact with the land, at level. A metal “skin” made out of microperforated sheet metal shutters serve as sun protection while closing the entire facade as a security system. In the daily use area – the living quarters area – the house raises half a level to bury the service area, garage, and gain longer visuals towards the garden. In this way, the site slopes down and away from this part of the house towards a pool and terraced gardens.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Alejandro PeralNoble materials, with their own texture and color, their own brightness, transparency, give a neutral palette that accompanies all the custom-designed furnishings created entirely by the firm. An independent reinforced concrete structure combined with metal columns, is the perfect ally to separate the structure from the enclosures and achieve the large overhang that covers the gallery blurring the line that separates the living-dining room from the outside, offering a smooth continuity towards the garden.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Twist Museum / BIGSelected ProjectsWired Mesh Installation Shapes an Open Air Museum in ItalyArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924735/bt-house-estudio-jorgelina-tortorici Clipboard Year:  CopyAbout this officeEstudio Jorgelina Tortorici Arq.OfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAdroguéOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on September 18, 2019Cite: “BT House / Estudio Jorgelina Tortorici Arq.” [Casa BT / Estudio Jorgelina Tortorici Arq.] 18 Sep 2019.

Fears of information leaks at Irish Water

first_img TAGSdata protectionIrish WaterMaurice QuinlivanPPSWater Charges Cllr Maurice Quinlivanby Bernie English WhatsApp Twitter Sinn Fein TD warns of impending “tsunami of addiction” when lockdown ends, as gardai seize €50,000 in drugs and cash in Limerick city estate Facebook Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up FEARS have been raised in Limerick that Irish Water’s demands for PPS numbers, coupled with the possibility that they will also ask for bank details, could lead to serious leaks in sensitive personal information.That’s the view of Limerick Sinn Féin councillor Maurice Quinlivan, who has expressed serious concerns over the water allowance application form to be sent to households by Irish Water in October.“It seems they will look for the PPS numbers of the whole household along with details of ownership of the property. It is unclear why Irish Water feels they need such details and it seems that they are being overly intrusive on people’s privacy. Also, there may be significant data protection issues in all this,” Cllr Quinlivan explained.The City North councillor said it is difficult to understand why Irish Water requires more detailed information from users of their service than other utility providers, stating: “At the very least they should release details of the proposed form and explain to the public why such information is being sought.”There is also some concern that only payment by direct debit will be accepted. “Apart from the obvious difficulties that this will cause for many people, it also means that bank details will be added to the range of information that will have to be submitted.“Given the fact that Irish Water is a subsidiary of Bord Gáis, who were previously in trouble with the Data Protection Commissioner for not properly safeguarding confidential information, and given the size and complexity of Irish Water, there are real fears of a repeat with people’s personal data being stolen or used for purposes for which they were not intended.”In a statement issued on foot of queries from the Limerick Post, Irish Water said: “Following Government direction of May 6, Irish Water is working to ensure that all aspects of the direction are implemented fully. All children under 18 are to receive free water and each household is to have an allocation of 30,000 litres per annum.“This constitutes an allocation of hundreds of millions of euro of resources in the form of free water. Irish Water must ensure that all customers who are eligible for an allocation receive what they are entitled to. As such, Irish Water is working on a means to allow people to confirm their relevant details and apply for their allowances.“To that end, PPS numbers provide a means to achieving these objectives and using PPS numbers is standard practice for all government allocations to individuals,” the statement concluded.

Author donates books to UTPB library

first_img Author donates books to UTPB library Pinterest Facebook By admin – April 18, 2018 Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp WhatsApp Local News Twitter Previous articleHIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL: Permian routs Tascosa 25-6Next articleGUEST VIEW: Protect American ideas through trade admin Books by Enrique Serna on AmazonFrom Enrique Serna’s viewpoint, rascals are more lovable than those who have led exemplary lives.The author of 14 books, Serna has written in a variety of genres — short stories, essays, futuristic fiction and an erotic novel. The only one of his books translated into English is “Fear of Animals,” a thriller and a satire of the Mexican literary world.Serna, who lives in Cuernavaca, Mexico, was in Odessa this week to donate five of his books to the University of Texas of the Permian Basin library and speak to students.Assistant Professor of Spanish Jose Antonio Moreno brought Serna to town.His bestseller in Mexico is “El Seductor de la Patria,” a historic novel about Antonio López de Santa Anna, who was the Mexican general that fought against the Texans and defeated them at the Alamo.Santa Anna was later taken prisoner by Gen. Sam Houston during the Texan War for Independence.“He’s a character demonized by the official Mexican history,” Serna said. “I wrote this novel because I think that the life of our rascals like Santa Anna can show us more about human condition than an exemplary life.”Serna said he was planning to write a television series for Televisa based on Santa Anna’s life. A group of researchers found many documents on the Mexican general’s life, but the producer of the TV series called the project off.He had all this research, so he decided to take advantage and write “El Seductor de la Patria,” published in 1999. Serna added that he wanted to tell the story with respect and a humoristic point of view.The book was a bestseller in Mexico used at high schools, universities and law schools.In researching the book, Serna said many things amazed him and he found that penning it as a novel gave him more freedom to put in historical facts that might have been left out of other books.“The thing that most surprised me was that Mexican society, even if they know that he was corrupt and opportunistic, they asked him many times to come back to the presidency because this society thought it didn’t deserve something better. What I discovered when I was writing this novel was the self deprecation of our society. This is a cancer of our social conscience that hasn’t been (healed),” Serna said.“Nowadays, we have a party like the Institutional Revolutionary Party, PRI, that keeps controlling the masses following the same tactics employed by Santana. This party has been in power almost 100 years, almost a century. Its domination is the main cause of our economic and political problems,” he added.Vincente Fox was elected as a member of the National Action Party (PAN) and the first president of the democratic era, but Serna said he didn’t change the structure of power he inherited from PRI.“… Things remain the same way because he made a big mistake. He gave a lot of power to many governors that were colluding with the organized crime. They own all the police (and) the army. This is the worst problem the new president of Mexico will have to deal with,” he said.Legalizing drugs, big political change and honest politicians are the only things that can undo the current situation, he said.Serna added that the current justice system is “rotten.”“The drug gangs have great power because they can bribe all the authorities. If they were not so rich, maybe we could stop this criminality in Mexico,” he said.Library Director Howard Marks said he’s glad to add Serna’s books to the collection because they add diversity. Marks also got to meet Serna.“He has a refreshing spirit,” Marks said.Author Enrique Serna poses with his bestselling book ‘El Seductor de la Patria’ Monday with UTPB Assistant Professor of Spanish Jose Antonio Moreno.By Ruth [email protected] Twitterlast_img read more

Subhash Reddy and MR Shah, heard the arguments in the plea filed by Saini which challenges the September 7 orderof the Punjab and Haryana High Court wherein his anticipatory bail plea was dismissed, and proceeded to direct for no arrest till a Reply is filed by the State within a period of 3 weeks. Rejoinder is to be filed thereafter within one week. Saini has been directed to cooperate with the police authorities. Today, Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing on behalf of Saini, submitted to the Court that it was a very serious matter and explained the chain of events. “My client rose from the ranks and became the DGP. He was a decorated officer and was present in the thick of the militancy in the State of Punjab. He had even suffered 5 bullet injuries!”, submitted Rohatgi. Rohatgi then posited that Multani’s father had filed a habeas corpus after Multani had escaped from jail. This had been rejected as the State had submitted that he was a proclaimed offender. “The Court had entertained an IA by the father of Multani to find what happened to this son. The district judge started hearing the matter in a plea which had already been disposed of, and the State Government appealed this. It was then held by the Supreme Court that the judge had no fresh material on the basis of which CBI probe had been ordered. Thus, it was quashed”, continued Rohatgi. Rohatgi raised the issue of the plea being entertained on the same subject matter, especially after 10 years of delay from the Supreme Court decision. He further referred to how it had been 29 years since Multani had escaped and the son had filed an FIR, despite being aware of the judgement of the Apex Court. “One district judge has recalled the other of another district judgement. Can that be ndone. It was even noted that the bail had been granted at a nascent stage. Is 30 years a nascent age?”, stated Rohatgi. Rohatgi then went on to aver that the government was after Saini because he had filed two chargesheets against the Captain Amarinder Singh, Chief Minister of Punjab. Senior Advocate Sidharth Luthra then commenced his submissions and stated that it was unfortunate that Rohatgi was attributing a motive to the judge. “I will make submissions on the 2011 verdict. There is a man called Multani who had been picked up from his resident. Statement had been recorded after registration of FIR. There were witnesses in the police station who have for the first time stated that the picture of Multani was not Multani at all. The HC judge also noted that the man used to intimidate and that a person had succumbed to injury after he was inhumanly treated by the Applicant”, submitted Luthra. Luthra concluded by noting that the Applicant had the audacity and power to have files under his control, even after his retirement. Senior Advocate KV Vishwanathan, appearing for Multani’s brother, then submitted to the Court that Multani’s father had approached the High Court as Supreme Court had kept the option open and, as a legal heir, he was present in Court. Vishwanathan referred to the Sushila Aggrawal case and submitted that arrest could be made if anticipatory bail was rejected. The Bench noted the submissions and issued notice in the matter. Saini had moved the Supreme Court to avoid his imminent arrest after the Punjab and Haryana High Court had dismissed his anticipatory bail on September 7. A caveat has had been filed by Punjab Police to pre-empt Saini from getting any ex-parte relief from the Court.

Baby girl dies after being left in family car for hours in possible hot car case: Police

first_imgKNXV-TV(GLENDALE, Ariz.) — An 18-month-old girl died after she was left in her family’s car for several hours, Arizona authorities said.The child’s death is being investigated as a possible hot car case, said police in Glendale, where the temperature reached 88 degrees Monday.When the baby’s father found the girl inside the car at an apartment complex Monday afternoon, officers were sent to the scene.The baby had been there for at least a few hours and “died from being left inside the vehicle,” police said in a statement, adding that the parents were at the scene and spoke with detectives.“Both parents are cooperating with detectives and they are very upset over losing their child,” Glendale police spokeswoman Tiffany Ngalula told ABC News via email Tuesday.“We will not be releasing their names as we are still working with them through this tragedy to determine exactly what occurred,” she continued. “We have not formally submitted any charges at this time as we still have key portions of the investigation to complete.”The little girl’s autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, Ngalula said.As the investigation continues, the police department urged, “Always check twice for loved ones left inside of a vehicle that do not have the ability to get out on their own, because we are ultimately responsible for them.”While it was not immediately clear if the baby’s death was hot car related, public safety group KidsAndCars.org warns that last year was the worst in history for child hot car deaths in the U.S., with a total of 52 fatalities.“Hot car deaths continue to take place because nobody believes this could happen to them,” KidsAndCars.org spokesperson Amber Rollins said in a statement Tuesday.If the Arizona case is confirmed to be hot car related, it will mark the third hot car death of the year, according to KidsAndCars.org.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
