PivotDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20Text description provided by the architects. The Concrete House @ Paniotis is a bespoke single family house located in the fairly dense suburban area of Paniotis in Limassol and stands in stark contrast to its adjoining properties. The linear plot afforded a longitudinal placement of the project; perpendicular to the narrower street façade. Although the plot is surrounded from pre-existing properties in close proximity, the project achieves organic fluidity between inside-outside, spatial permeability and the perception of openness. The arrangement of the house in the plot manipulates visual relationships with the adjoining properties and strategically hides and reveals parts.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouA bold metal screen (steel frame and expanded mesh panels) on the west street façade acts as a privacy barrier and creates a sense of anticipation just before one enters and experiences the spatial porosity and seamless extension to the outside. It also provides shading from the intense west summer sun. The austerity of the west façade is challenged by a seasonal growth of climbing plants. Spatial strategies, materiality, landscaping and vegetation celebrate seasonality and temporality. Interior spaces spill out to a series of interstitial spaces created between the main concrete envelope of the building and a secondary skin of folding timber slat panels and sliding expanded mesh screens.Save this picture!SectionThese spaces act as interfaces to create an intermediate microclimate via shading, controlling heat gains, pockets of vegetation for evaporative cooling and manipulating breezes. All of these spaces belong both to the inside and outside, and some are inhabited (as outdoor rooms). The exterior landscape provides a continuous flow around the building revealing the basement as a lower ground level with access to outdoor spaces. Diverse outdoor spaces enable different inhabitation patterns and climatic comfort: an expansive eastern garden (shaded by the volume of the house in the afternoon, when it is mostly utilized), an outdoor room which functions as a central living space (catching westerly breezes), the swimming pool area, a stepping garden leading to a sunken basement garden, a planted ramp leading to the basement garage and a north facing herb garden.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouThe tectonic approach comprises of a primary structure of reinforced concrete (frame and slab) infilled by exterior concrete walls, resulting in a continuous concrete shell. The project focused on experimenting with exposed timber board marked concrete; aiming towards precision in formwork, concrete mix, curing processes and achieving a variety of imprinted textures. The mass and durability of concrete establishes a dialogue with raw timber and metals. A series of kinetic elements in the project further manifest the appreciation that preferences and needs change and allow the users to appropriate their spaces and modulate the environment.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouAll living spaces are south facing with deep horizontal cantilevers that cast shadows in the summer. Openings towards other orientations encourage cross ventilation. An interior exposed concrete wall demarcates a buffer zone towards the north where all the auxiliary spaces are arranged. The passive cooling/ heating strategies employed in combination with a very well thermally insulated envelope and active systems, contribute to the excellent energy efficiency of the project.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouProject gallerySee allShow lessSquare of Traditional Crafts in Varaždin / KONNTRASelected ProjectsFrans Masereel Centre / LIST + Hideyuki NakayamaSelected Projects Share Cyprus “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMarkella Menikou Chartered ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMies van der Rohe AwardLimassolOn FacebookCyprusPublished on February 10, 2021Cite: “Concrete House / Markella Menikou Chartered Architect” 10 Feb 2021.

This compares to second quarter2003 earnings of $5.1 million, or 40 cents per basic and diluted share of common stock.For the first six months of 2004, CV reported earnings of $13.9 million, or $1.10 per basic and $1.09 per dilutedshare of common stock, a $3.8 million increase from a year ago. Earnings for the first six months of 2003 totaled$10.1 million, or 80 cents per basic and 79 cents per diluted share of common stock.On Jan. 1, 2004, subsidiary Connecticut Valley Electric Company (“CVEC”) completed the sale of substantiallyall of its plant assets and franchise. In the second quarter of 2003, when the sale became probable, CVEC’soperations were required to be presented in the financial statements as discontinued operations.

The volumedecrease resulted from second quarter 2004 scheduled nuclear plant outages at Vermont Yankee andMillstone Unit #3, and a 19-day unscheduled outage at Vermont Yankee beginning June 18, partiallyoffset by additional mWh available for resale due to the termination of the power contract with CVEC.” Retail and firm sales increased $0.5 million due to increased sales volume, and other operating revenuesincreased $0.2 million.Purchased power expense decreased $3.1 million, pre-tax, in the second quarter of 2004 compared to the sameperiod in 2003 as a result of the following factors:” Power purchases primarily under long-term contracts decreased $8.8 million, due to a scheduled outage atVermont Yankee in April 2004 and a 19-day unscheduled outage at Vermont Yankee beginning June 18due to a transformer fire at the plant, and lower deliveries under the Hydro-Quebec contract.last_img read more

Asia stocks set to rise on upbeat data, focus on China PMI

first_imgAsian markets were poised to follow Wall Street’s firm lead on Tuesday as the sentiment boost from upbeat US data outweighed the threat of rising COVID-19 infections in the world’s largest economy.Investors cheered strong US housing data that showed a bounce back in home sales, and are anticipating positive jobs data later this week as the US jobs numbers are expected to tick up as people head back to work.“Overnight moves in markets were not large but one does get the distinct impression that markets have got it both ways – with equities rallying on rebounding data and bonds rallying on dismal COVID-19 news,” said ANZ Research analyst Rahul Khare. Australian S&P/ASX 200 futures rose 1.15 percent while Japan’s Nikkei 225 futures ticked up 0.11 percent. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index futures climbed 0.62 percent.In Asia, investor focus will be on China’s official purchasing managers’ index (PMI), which is expected to show factory activity grew for a fourth straight month in June albeit at a slower pace, raising concerns the recovery in the world’s second-largest economy may be stalling.A recent resurgence in coronavirus infections had caused some investors to doubt the strength of a rebound in global economic activity.However, gains in equities, long-term yields, and oil futures suggest the majority of investors remain optimistic about the long-term prospects for growth. Confirmed COVID-19 cases worldwide rose past 10 million and deaths surpassed 500,000 on over the weekend. The bulk of new cases were reported in the United States and Latin America, stoking fears that the outbreak could stall economic recoveries just as lockdowns begin to ease.MSCI’s gauge of stocks across the globe rose 0.72 percent during Monday trading fueled by gains on Wall Street. On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 2.32 percent, the S&P 500 gained 1.47 percent and the Nasdaq Composite added 1.2 percent.US Treasuries were little changed after Monday trading as the intervention by the Federal Reserve Bank kept yields stable.In currency markets, the dollar held onto gains against the yen and the Swiss franc as the recent increase in coronavirus cases supported safe-haven demand for the greenback.China’s yuan held steady at 7.0752 per dollar in the offshore market as traders braced for China’s PMI.In oil markets, Brent crude contracts were unchanged at US$41.71 per barrel.Topics :last_img read more

Nikias speaks with students about goals

first_imgFulfilling his goals to interact with students, President C.L. Max Nikias shared his plans for the university with students Tuesday at this semester’s final Campus Conversations Series event held in The Forum.Open up · After receiving the idea from USG, President C.L. Nikias said he plans to deliver a speech to an all-student audience on Feb. 1. – Carlos Acenas | Daily Trojan Hosted by the Office of Campus Activities, the event began with Nikias delivering what he said was not a speech but remarks followed by a 30-minute question-and-answer session during which Nikias walked among the crowd and answered questions.“He was remarkably engaging,” said Chris Cheng, president of Undergraduate Student Government. “He was weaving in and out of the crowd. There’s no better way to hear feedback from the university than to hear it from the students.”Nikias, born on the island of Cyprus, said his parents’ passion for education instilled in him a similar drive for learning, which guides many of his goals for the university.“I advise you to develop an appreciation for the arts. They are couriers, messengers of core values of who we are as human beings,” Nikias, who created the arts and humanities initiative Visions and Voices, said. “Through the arts, you can become a much more complete human being.”He also advised students on the importance of constantly reading books despite having busy schedules and promised to post to the president’s Facebook page during the month of April his recommendations of books to read over the summer.Cheng asked Nikias about how he plans to maintain a close relationship with students throughout his tenure“What I can assure you is that as long as I am president of USC, being in close contact with the students is always going to be a priority,” Nikias said. “I would love to hear from you about how I can be closer with the students.”Nikias announced a speech that he will be giving solely to students on Feb. 1 at 4 p.m. —  an idea he said he received from USG earlier in the year during an afternoon tea meeting, which he holds with various campus groups each month.“It’s not just him throwing his message out. It’s a two-way initiative,” Cheng said.Cheng said that it was wonderful to hear that Nikias listened to his suggestion to address students directly.One piece of advice Nikias gave students was to explore classes outside of their majors and find something to be passionate about to study.“Being in a university environment, you’ve got to let your imagination fly,” Nikias said. “It’s OK to experiment and it’s OK to take some risks, and like any other experiment, some experiments succeed and some experiments fail, but it’s OK.”Nikias said he plans to strengthen the relationship with the community surrounding campus and has already visited 10 of the 15 schools in the USC Family of Schools in order to understand and interact better with the students and faculty in the neighborhood.“It’s been a wonderful experience for me to visit those schools on their grounds,” Nikias said. “I had a real hard time going to sleep in the evenings. I was having a lot of ideas of what we can do to make a difference, especially for the kids.”In the spring, Nikias said he will be making two major announcements regarding outreach to the community. First, he will present an initiative that will focus on job training and job creation in the neighborhood, targeting businesses on Vermont Avenue and Figueroa Street.His second announcement will be his plan to offer the same high-speed Internet access that students use on campus to the 100 homes closest to campus, which will be paid for by the university and free to those community members.“He’s concerned not just about the academics, but about the community around him,” said Murtaza Najmuddin, a graduate student studying construction management, who attended the event. “It’s all spreading.”As part of his plan to transform USC into a truly residential university, Nikias said administrators are in the process of finalizing designs involved in the Master Plan to redevelop campus, particularly focusing on the University Village, which  will be remodeled to contain housing specifically for graduate students, retail shops and a gym.In response to a student who raised concerns about redeveloping the University Village as a completely university space that might exclude the community, Nikias said the university has been receiving input and feedback from the neighborhood as it designs plans for that area.“I don’t want to see the chains of Armani and Gucci — that’s not the right image that I want to project for the university or for our community. There will be retail stores that are affordable. I don’t want to be selling things that are very expensive, but they will be of good quality,” Nikias said. “We live in a community and we live for a community.”At the end of the event, the Torch and Tassel chapter of Mortar Board at USC, a senior honor society, presented Nikias with a certificate designating him an honorary member of the USC chapter of the national organization.last_img read more

Shafer: Syracuse will apply for 6th-year waiver for Terrel Hunt

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse has already started the process to apply for a sixth-year waiver for injured quarterback Terrel Hunt, SU head coach Scott Shafer said on his weekly teleconference Tuesday.“It will just be a wait and see with the NCAA,” Shafer said.Hunt tore his right Achilles 7:27 into Syracuse’s 47-0 win over Rhode Island on Friday night, and will be sidelined for the entire 2015 season. The injury comes after Hunt fractured his fibula and missed the last seven games of 2014. He was replaced by true freshman quarterback Eric Dungey, who is presumed to be the starting quarterback moving forward.Shafer also said that Hunt was “getting fixed as we speak” during the teleconference, but it was unclear whether that meant the surgery was happening early Tuesday afternoon.It’s the first time Shafer is going through the application for a sixth season, and said that he’s handing it over to Syracuse’s medical staff. He also couldn’t assess Hunt’s chances because of his unfamiliarity with sixth-year medical waivers, but said he will continue to learn about the process as the Orange moves forward with it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Terrel’s a real strong young man who has overcome a lot in his life,” Shafer said. “When you look at the injury situation, just a horrible situation for a strong young man.” Comments Published on September 8, 2015 at 12:25 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesselast_img read more

Beach Soccer adds flavour to Hogbetsotso festival in Keta

first_imgThe Cal Bank Beach Soccer Championship and the Voltic Division One league resumed in unfamiliar but spectacular territories at the weekend. Week 15 action was embraced by locals, general sports fans and tourists alike from far and near who were in the Anlo state to witness the Hogbetsotso festival. Those in the Keta vicinity were treated to mouth watering displays of soccer artistry especially by the Volta based sides playing in front of their home crowd. Havedzi Mighty Warriors briefly pulled clear at the top of the log beating East Legon Sharks 3-0, albeit playing a game more than their closest rivals Keta Sunset Sports who were later awarded three points and three goals due to the no-show of their opponents. The Warriors scored a goal apiece in each of the three sessions of the game, proving to be no match at all for their opponents who are forth on the log. Wuo Gbee held their nerves to ensure there was no repeat of the comeback for Dansoman in their seven goal first round thriller. Dansoman known for their comeback prowess in the league this year almost achieved the feat once more, scoring very early in the third session of the game to make the score line 4-3. This set up a nail biting finish to the game, but the Osu based side remained resolute to see out the victory and three hard won points. Teshie United piped Layoca 2-1 to move further away from the foot of the log. In the Division one league, Nungua United proved their superb form knew no boundaries as they routed African Angels 6-3, taking another giant step forward in their quest to make it to the top flight of the league Fans and merry makers including MP for Keta Hon. Richard Quashigah and MCE for Keta Hon. Sylvester Tonyeavah who had turned up to celebrate the festival shared their joy at how far the game had come in Ghana. Both distinguished citizens called for beach soccer to be boosted and played more often in their region. The best was left to last as reigning double champions and crowd pullers Keta Sunset, edged Gulf powers 3-2 in a classy exhibition game. Beach soccer in Ghana is expected to shoot up in 2015 with a number of domestic and international competitions proposed by the GBSA to the Ghana Football Association (GFA). With just three weeks left to wrap up the season, the league tables for both divisions makes for interesting reading.last_img read more
