For the refurbishment of a terrace located in a classic house in Buenos Aires.Marantz focused on converting the roof into a new recreational spot by designing an area with green spaces, an orchard with its own irrigation system, and by expanding its living area by adding a grill and deck. A light structure was added, linking the two roof levels with a staircase that connects and saves space. This system adds a canopy where needed, and is left open for the areas that need natural light, like the orchard and part of the deck. One of the most important factors of the project was the budget, therefore the choice of materials was very important.Save this picture!© Fernando SchapoSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!© Fernando SchapoAesthetic and material quality and balance was achieved through the use of tinplate, tongue and wood joints, wood deck floor, and white plaster.The result is a green and environmentally friendly terrace that creates a place for recreation and relaxation for its owners.Save this picture!© Fernando SchapoProject gallerySee allShow lessOur Readers Respond: The Cádiz Castle Renovation is, in Fact, GoodArticlesComic Break: “Crazy Project Budgets”Articles Share Argentina 2015 Mg / Marantz ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveMg / Marantz Arquitectura CopyHouses, Extension•Buenos Aires, Argentina ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783996/mg-marantz-arquitectura Clipboard Houses Area:  35 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Projects Save this picture!© Fernando Schapo+ 22 Share Year:  “COPY” Mg / Marantz Arquitectura Architects: Marantz Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMarantz ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionBuenos AiresArgentinaPublished on March 18, 2016Cite: “Mg / Marantz Arquitectura ” 18 Mar 2016.

Hard-Hitting News: HBO’s The Newsroom Canceled After Third Season Sendoff

first_img “The Newsroom is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” stated HBO programming president Michael Lombardo. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.” We’re super sad The Newsroom is ending, because the slew of Broadway alums featured in the show have blown audiences away, even garnering Jeff Daniels an Emmy. However, silver lining—does this mean we might see Newsroom theater vets like Tony nominees Daniels, Jane Fonda, Hope Davis, Alison Pill and Thomas Sadoski, Tony winners Marcia Gay Harden and John Gallagher Jr. or Broadway newcomers Grace Gummer and Hamish Linklater back on the Main Stem any time soon? Besides Jeff Daniels’ one-man show at 54 Below, NYC hasn’t seen any of these Newsroom stars on Broadway since 2012 and we’re ready for another God of Carnage style production! Hot off the presses! Your Sunday nights will never be the same without the fast-paced, quick wit of Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom. That’s right, don’t cry, but according to Entertainment Weekly, HBO has decided to cancel the journalism drama after the completion of its third and final season airs this fall.

Peach Production

first_imgA drought that has spanned multiple months has University of Georgia peach specialist Dario Chavez concerned that peach trees in Georgia may suffer from lack of water.Even during the fall, mature peach trees need approximately 15 gallons of water per tree every day. Younger trees need about two-thirds of that amount. As fall moves into winter, those water requirements will decrease.Though Georgia has received some rain over the past couple of weeks, 103 counties in the state were declared at Level 1 drought response, according to UGA Agricultural Climatologist Pam Knox.“Although the fruit is far gone from the peach trees right now, trees are still growing. If we don’t have water available, we’re not keeping the trees and their fruiting wood in optimal conditions, and this is what produces the fruit for next year,” said Chavez, who is based on the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences campus in Griffin, Georgia. “Although we focus mostly on the fruit when it’s available on the tree, we have to focus on the tree health overall, too.”Chavez believes it’s easy, once peach season ends in early August, to forget about irrigating peach trees during the off-season. If irrigation in the orchards is not managed properly, it could impact the peach crop the following year.“One of the main factors with tree health is the availability of water for the tree. That’s why I try to remind the growers that, although we don’t have fruit available, we still need to water because those trees have a water requirement,” he said.Chavez says that if the trees don’t have sufficient water, they will quickly show signs of stress that can affect the fruiting wood and fruit development.According to georgiaweather.net, UGA’s automated weather network, the drought was especially impactful on areas of the state where the bulk of peach production occurs. In Fort Valley, Georgia, located in middle Georgia, only 3.9 inches of rain and 11 rainy days were recorded between Aug. 10 and Oct. 10. This is down considerably from the 7.92 inches and 20 rainy days registered during the same time period in 2018. According to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, peach production netted $8.8 million in farm gate value in 2016 in Peach County.In Gainesville, Georgia, located in the north central part of the state, only 1.9 inches of rainfall and eight rainy days were recorded during the same timeframe. Peach production in the area netted $490,000 in farm gate value in 2016.For more information about Georgia’s peach crop, see t.uga.edu/5m7.last_img read more

Vermont, three other NE state announce Secondary School Consortium

first_imgGovernor Announces Bold Multi-state Effort to Prepare Students across New England for Success in the 21st CenturyGroundbreaking four-state collaboration will work to reinvent the high school experienceMONTPELIER (December 15, 2008) – Governor Douglas today announced the formation of the New England Secondary School Consortium, a groundbreaking regional partnership encompassing four states: Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.The Consortium is funded by the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, the largest philanthropy in New England focused exclusively on education. The Nellie Mae Education Foundation has committed $1 million to support the Consortium, which includes a $500,000 partnership grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest philanthropic foundation.”This important collaboration will bring resources and expertise to Vermont in order to provide the best possible education for our high school students,” said Governor Douglas. “By working together, our small states can make a big difference for our future citizens. Recognizing that collaboration and regionalization will be the engines of educational transformation over the coming decades, the Consortium intends to become a multi-state initiative that can serve as a national model.”Coordinated by the Great Schools Partnership at the Mitchell Institute of Portland, Maine, the Consortium will initially include four states-Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont-and bring together their departments of education, districts, and high schools with independent school-support organizations and educational leaders from across New England in a far-reaching regional alliance. The group will share resources, talents, and expertise while exploring cost-saving efficiencies in pursuit of a common mission: ensure that by 2016 every public high school student in the four states will receive an education that will prepare them for college, career, and civic responsibility in the interconnected global community of the 21st century.”All four of the states have made great strides on their own in recent years, but together we can reach every student in every school,” said Bill Talbott, Vermont’s Acting Commissioner of Education. “For more than a year, we have been laying the groundwork for this important partnership. We know that we share the same goals and that we can work together effectively. This important grant will help us advance our transformation work from vision to implementation.”Recognizing that the traditional ways of educating students are no longer aligned with today’s civic and professional expectations, and that the time has come to rethink the traditional American high school experience on a regional scale, the Consortium will support the development of high-performing, internationally competitive schools and new learning experiences that will better mirror the lives and learning needs of today’s students. These transformed schools will no longer be limited by building design, geography, or educational convention, but will be flexible, borderless, multidimensional community learning centers that blend secondary and postsecondary education-students will conduct research in their communities, acquire real-world skills through challenging internships, take online and on-campus college courses, use powerful new technologies to access the world, and engage in other innovative learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.”We’re thrilled to be working with the Consortium and the Gates Foundation to stimulate the transformative change needed in our public schools,” said Nellie Mae Education Foundation President and CEO Nicholas C. Donohue. “We also remain open to extending membership to the rest of the New England community as the work of the Consortium develops. This is a tremendous opportunity to ensure that learners across New England acquire the skills and knowledge necessary today to be economically self-sufficient, lifelong learners.”Building on the success of the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP), the Consortium will leverage forward-thinking policies, model educational programs, positive messaging, and the combined resources and expertise of four states to launch a coordinated regional movement that will bring to scale systemic and sustainable innovations in the design and delivery of secondary education. Collaboration will be the engine of effective and sustainable large-scale educational transformation over the coming decades, and the Consortium intends to become a pioneering multi-state partnership that can serve as a model for the nation.”Far too many young people leave high school without the education they need or deserve,” said Andrew Smiles, Program Officer with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “We are proud to partner with the Nellie Mae Education Foundation and are excited about the prospect this work holds for improving education in New England and beyond.”During the initial eighteen-month phase of this multi-year effort, participating states will conduct a comprehensive review of the rules, regulations, and laws governing education. The resulting policy map will inform development of new state and local policies that will stimulate educational innovation, encourage implementation of new models of teaching and learning, require personalized support for each student, and clarify performance expectations for both educators and students.The Consortium will also undertake a wide-ranging examination of state learning standards, teaching strategies, assessment practices, professional development programs, and student outcomes in relation to the highest-performing international educational systems. New England students are part of a global community that has redefined the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind that students need, and this work will identify the characteristics of effective education in the 21st century and apply these lessons to the creation of new models of teaching, learning, and leading.A steering council consisting of representatives from governors’ offices and key legislative, education, and business leaders will be established to guide and build support for the Consortium’s work.

Civil Legal Assistance Act vetoed

first_imgCivil Legal Assistance Act vetoed Civil Legal Assistance Act vetoed Foundation plans to fight on for funding next year Gary Blankenship Senior Editor The distance from the pinnacle to the nadir was less than three weeks for supporters of Florida’s Access to Civil Legal Assistance Act.On May 6, devotees of the program, which is run through The Florida Bar Foundation and provides legal assistance for poor families with a variety of legal programs, were ecstatic. The pilot program was being expanded from seven circuits to statewide. Lawmakers approved a raise in funding from $1 million to $5 million.Then on May 26, Gov. Jeb Bush vetoed the appropriation. That means not only will the program not go statewide, but there is no funding for the seven circuit pilot programs which have been running for nearly three years and have helped thousands of people. The governor’s veto message did not explain why the appropriation was vetoed, although it was the largest line item to receive the gubernatorial ax. However, Russell Schweiss, a Bush spokesperson, told the Bar News, “The governor thought it was too large an expansion in the funding for the program.”Florida Bar Foundation President Terry Russell said the veto will not end work on the program, which he said has helped thousands of poor Floridians in the past three years.“We live to fight another day,” Russell said. “We do have the legislation [which passed]; we do have strong support from the legislature, and we do believe we will have it next year and in future years.“We’re going to do our best to find out the governor’s objections and do our best to address them,” he added. “All the statistics are highly supportive of continuing the program and his office didn’t challenge that. We don’t know if the objections he has are solvable or not.”The veto also means that the Foundation board will have to decide if it will appropriate approximately two months’ funding so the program can close out cases still pending when the state money ends on June 30, according to Foundation Executive Director Jane Curran.Rep. Dudley Goodlette, R-Naples, who helped shepherd the expansion of the program through the legislature, also expressed disappointment and said he plans to try again next year.“My own view and the view of people with the Bar and Foundation and who are close to the program that was created in 2002. . . is we have seen some real successes and it has served people who would not otherwise have had access to legal advice to solve vexing legal and personal problems,” he said.“I intend to try to meet with the governor and review with him whatever specific concerns he and members of his staff might have and try to address those in a way they find satisfactory, and next year, if we can persuade the governor on the merits of going statewide [with the program], we’ll file it again.”Supporting the expansion of the Civil Legal Assistance Act statewide was a legislative priority of The Florida Bar, and Bar President Kelly Overstreet Johnson said she was unhappy with the veto.“A lot of people within the Bar and Bar Foundation, as well as legislators, worked extremely hard to get this passed,” she said. “And we were optimistic it would jump start the program statewide.“We’ll be back next year, but it looks like we’ll have to start from ground zero, since we don’t even have the $1 million this year.”The Civil Legal Assistance Act had a broader purpose, aimed at helping low-income families with a variety of problems including domestic abuse, family and juvenile law, getting benefits from the federal government, and immigration. Under the law, the program could not provide help in criminal cases, nor could it file class actions or suits against the state or any of its subdivisions.According to Foundation figures, 13,173 individuals and families have been served by the program. Another 20,437 received information about their legal rights, either from presentations, brochures, or one-on-one meetings. In addition, the representations have resulted in the clients’ receiving millions of lump sum and monthly federal benefits — which helps the state economically — and in turn has eased demand on some state resources.Russell said the Foundation will use its resources and work with legal aid agencies to try to compensate for the loss of funds. He also said lawyers may be called on to step up their pro bono work to help out.“This is sort of like a blip in the overall plan to permanently secure from the state support for a significant component what lawyers otherwise do for free,” he said. “The delivery of access to the legal system is not only a professional responsibility of attorneys, it is a social responsibility.”The act was first passed in 2002 with a $2 million appropriation, split among seven circuits. The next year, with a tight state budget, the allocation was reduced to $1.5 million, and in 2004, it was cut further to $1 million.This year, with an easing of state revenues, supporters made a big push and succeeded in getting funding for the program to go statewide.

USG election season kicks off on Friday

first_imgWith the 2010 Undergraduate Student Government election season beginning Friday, USG officials are hoping the race will be a little less controversial than last year.Meeting of the minds · In February, students will have a chance to vote for the next Undergraduate Student Government president and vice president, who will oversee USG’s operations for the next year. – Sunil Murali | Daily Trojan After a tumultuous election season last year, changes have been applied to the Elections Code to ensure that this year’s race runs smoothly.“Last year was a total mess,” Emiko Suzuki, co-director of Elections and Recruitment, said. “USG looked bad, the candidates looked bad, everyone was upset that it was happening … We just really want to prevent that.”During last year’s elections, there were accusations of misconduct among the candidates that lead to the eventual disqualification of one campaign, as well as general confusion among the student body.This year, the Elections and Recruitment team synchronized the Elections Code with all the other official documents on campus, such as USC Housing rules about posting fliers and the USG bylaws, so there would be fewer contradictions and less confusion with election rules.“It was just so hectic last year with the Election Code written the way it was,” USG Vice President Ashlie Chan said. “There’s so many things that were tightened up a little bit … We’re really excited because I think it’s going to cause less conflict.”USG has also removed the volunteer sheets from the process, deciding that they are no longer necessary because they posed possible confusion in usage, Chan said. Last year, anyone who volunteered with a campaign had to turn in a volunteer sheet to the USG office, but the definition of volunteer was unclear and the process was confusing.“We tried to make it a little bit more clear,” Suzuki said. “Just for it to be more coherent; when you’re reading it you’ll know what the rules are. There aren’t weird loopholes that you can use to attack someone else.”USG is hoping the new rules and regulations will lead to a calmer, less controversial election period.“We hope that this year there will be very few complaints and people are just enjoying their time running a campaign,” Suzuki said. “We want everyone to play nice and play fair.”Some students, however, said it wasn’t just the controversy that kept them from voting last year.Cara Chang, a junior majoring in kinesiology and biological sciences, said she didn’t vote last year because she didn’t know how.“I didn’t really care because anything they do doesn’t have much of an effect on me,” she said. “I’m probably not going to vote this year either because it doesn’t seem like it will make much of a difference.”Some students, however, said they think it is important to vote.“I think it’s important who runs the school, and if you don’t vote, you never have a say, and when you do vote, it reflects your own values and goals,” said David Alvarez, a sophomore majoring in communication.last_img read more
