House for a Relaxing life. The Pitanga House was designed for a family who decided to move from one of the busiest neighborhoods in the city of Sao Paulo to live in Santa Isabel, a city about 55km from the capital. The plot is in an environmental reserve, which makes the native vegetation appear abundantly. This oriented the most important visuals of the house to the denser part of the forest but that did not harm any visual of the house because on all sides of the 800 sqm plot you can see large trees.Save this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliThe house is divided between three levels. At the upper floor we find the bedrooms and a small office. The kitchen, barbecue, laundry room, living room and a suite are located at the groundfloor sharing space with the trees. The whole ground floor has large glass sheets that close (or open) the living and dining room and thereby control their integration with the leisure area and pool are on the same level.Save this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliAt the lowest level thre is a volume of concrete embedded in the natural profile of the lot, in this part we have an office for the couple who can now work from home, a garden and a garden, a space for the care of the dogs of the house [two English shepherds and a mutt dog] plus a room for the pool machinery. Access to these areas is by a prefabricated concrete helical staircase, which creates a path and kind of displacement, even within the lot, to register that the couple is leaving for work. Even if this ‘going to office’ only means leaving the main volume behind. The concrete structure makes the house look like a stone in the middle of the trees and aims to make a smooth transition between the natural and the built by the human hand.Save this picture!Cortesia de Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessRavel Residence / OZSelected ProjectsFlora Apartments / Belatchew ArkitekterSelected Projects Share Brazil Rodrigo Maçonilio, André Di Gregório CopyAbout this officeEstúdio BRAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureIcebergBrazilPublished on March 27, 2021Cite: “Pitanga House / Estúdio BRA” [Casa Pitanga / Estúdio BRA] 27 Mar 2021.

Thankfully the need to support rural communities, help them attract and keep jobs and keep American agriculture as a leader in the world is a bipartisan issue.“Through the Rebuild Rural Coalition, we have had warm receptions from Ranking Member Stabenow’s and Carper’s staff. They understand the unique challenges of rural infrastructure, and that is borne out in today’s proposal.“We look forward to working with Congress and the White House on this vitally important opportunity to improve the quality of life for rural Americans and the communities in which they live.” Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Sewers flood Regent’s basement

first_imgThis weekend brought an unpleasant surprise for the students of Regent’s Park College when many lower floor rooms were found flooded with an ankle deep layer of a liquid smelling of urine.Will Yates, a first year student at Regent’s Park, discovered the flood on the morning of Saturday 26 October.He said that both the mens’ toilets and the laundry room, situated in the basement of the main building, were flooded with a liquid he described as a, “combination of urine and leaked washing machine water”.This posed a problem for many students who had left their washing drying in the room and also on the floor.One first year who had left their clothes to dry on the floor of the laundry room was quite irritated, commenting, “They smelled a bit like piss”.The consensus among students is that the problem was caused by the urinals in the toilet getting blocked, which was then exacerbated by a burst pipe.One student was keen to stress that the flood didn’t result from “people peeing so much that they flooded an entire floor”.The problem was apparently due to the main sewers on St Giles Street backing up, which was subsequently dealt with by Thames Water.According to one student, the liquid within the college was not mopped up until Sunday morning.Regent’s Park College declined to comment.last_img read more

first_img[Videos via Sean Roche/YouTube, Setlist via Erin Lippert/FOJC] Phil Lesh resumed his run at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY last night, bringing back one of his most beloved “Friends” lineups to date: The Quintet. Comprised of Jimmy Herring, Warren Haynes, John Molo and Rob Barraco, “The Q” toured semi-regularly from 2000-2003, and have since reunited to play together a handful of times. It’s always a treat to see these five get together, and last night was no exception.The show opened with a potent improvisational section, just showing the group’s ability to feed off of each other for some excellent musicianship. The jam eventually segued into a cover of Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy,” led by Haynes’ vocals. Enjoy that below, courtesy of Sean Roche:Next up was a “China Cat Sunflower” into “Let It Ride,” the latter of which you can watch below:The set rocked on with “Passenger” into “Cosmic Charlie,” with a rockin’ “Cassidy” to follow. “Spots of Time” closed out set one.Set two was as fun as ever, with “Mason’s Children” jamming into a cover of Allman Brothers’ “Mountain Jam” which subsequently went into “Mountains of the Moon.” For those who want more of this show, stream the full audio below, thanks to taper Dave Malloy: The band is set to return to the Cap tonight, so don’t miss out!

Swingin’ Dick’s: Phish Scorches Colorado On Opening Night [Setlist/Review]

first_imgFor the last six Labor Day weekends, Phish fans have flocked to the beloved Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO to catch their favorite band for three nights of musical magic. The longest-standing tradition for fans, there’s no denying that Phish loves Dick’s. It must be something in the Colorado air…Coming off two strong shows at Lockn’ Festival, Phish settled right into their three-night stand with a “Ghost” opener that featured a ripping solo from Trey Anastasio. With the last five years of spelling routines on people’s minds, the next selection “No Men In No Man’s Land” broached the waters of a “Most Shows Spell Something”-esque concept. This was no slouching “No Men” either, as the band stretched out for a really nice long jam that turned a corner from rock to space funk, only building up the energy throughout the ten-plus minutes.Watch the show opening “Ghost” in HD, courtesy of Phish.“Breath and Burning” put an end to the spelling game, as the 2016 original was played out with a nice melodic solo. The group got their funk on in “Undermind,” and it was Page McConnell who tickled the ivories with a great solo in “Heavy Things.” Trey commented that Page was really “swinging,” a comment that drummer Jon Fishman took to heart after a spaced out “Stash.” Fishman kept the “swinging” joke going, bringing it back to the humorous venue name, Dick’s. Naturally, “swinging Dick’s” jokes ensued, before Fish led a fun version of his new song, “Ass Handed.”The remainder of the set was pure funky Phish, as they rocked “The Wedge” and brought out “Alaska” for the first time in 77 shows (7/30/2014). They closed the set with “46 Days,” an improvisational highlight of the set and show. The jam was all patient, as Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman were locked in on the rhythm section. Trey spit fire and brought the set to a close with the song’s triumphant ending.Set two kicked off in fine fashion with a rock and rolling “Run Like Antelope,” but it was the return of “Mercury” that would highlight the early part of the second set. Played for the first time in 2016, the band lagged a bit through the beginning but quickly found their pace and finished off the song with a big jam. The tune segued into “Seven Below,” which got into spacey, dark territory before erupting into “Birds Of A Feather.” This BOAF was all rock and roll with Trey shredding throughout.Watch the second set Antelopener below, courtesy of Phish.After an short and funky “Wombat,” the band got to work on a trio of songs that would end the set. The “Tweezer > Runaway Jim” was the gem of the second set, as the band locked together and fluidly moved through improvisational notions. “Runaway Jim” also featured a fun “Seven Below” tease from Trey early on, as he kept things loose and entertaining. “Suzy Greenberg” brought the house down to end the set, packing in a fun jam with Trey playing the Marimba Lumina. It was Page that really shined in the set closer, working his keyboard magic while Trey and Fishman provided dual percussion.For the encore, Phish took things down with one of their slower selections, “Bug.” The smile-and-sway tune broke into one last rager, as fans tossed their glowsticks for one final show-stopping “Tweezer Reprise.” Though the “Tweezer”/”Reprise” combination were both played in the band’s last show at Lockn’, bringing them out in the first show is a sure signal of the band’s pure excitement for this run at Dick’s.With two more nights to go, anything is possible!

More ways of defining diversity

first_imgRace is a complicated subject in American political life. It is no less so in college admissions.For decades, the U.S. Supreme Court has struggled with the issue of race in higher education. Its historic 1978 decision concerning affirmative action programs in college admissions generated six opinions. The deciding vote, cast by Associate Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., held that the University of California could use affirmative action in admissions to achieve a diverse student body — but that using strict racial preferences to arrive at such diversity was unconstitutional.According to recent research by a student at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), admissions staffs and students at many colleges and universities continue to struggle with the topic. While both groups consider a diverse campus an important quality that enhances the learning environment, the results suggest that neither is sure how to determine such diversity.A mother of four who worked for years as a lawyer specializing in business issues, Theresa Kaiser also has strong ties to education and admits to a “love and curiosity for learning.” Her father is a college professor, and for years she owned a school teaching English as a second language.But it was her work as a volunteer in the guidance counselor’s office of her children’s high school, and her experience helping her daughters apply to college, that piqued her interest in higher education, in particular the college application process.“Seeing how you identify race on a college application immediately seemed inaccurate to me,” said Kaiser, who has an adopted brother from a biracial family. “How can Americans express who they are by checking a few boxes?”As part of her yearlong master’s program in higher education at HGSE, Kaiser decided to explore the subject and try to answer the question: “How do people identify anymore?”The results were revealing, indicating that heritage, behavior, genetics, and physical appearance are all parts of a complicated racial picture.For her project, Kaiser developed an online survey that asked students from three public universities how they would racially classify themselves. She also created a second survey to gauge what criteria college admissions offices consider in their efforts to achieve diversity.According to Kaiser’s research, a majority of students said they considered their biological or genetic heritage the most important factor when classifying themselves. The second-most important factor was physical appearance, and the third was cultural or social behavior.Of the three schools that responded to Kaiser’s survey, two considered an applicant’s diversity based on cultural or social behavior the most valuable.Additionally, 86 percent of respondents felt it was important to have a racially diverse student body, yet only 26 percent thought race should be considered in the admissions process.“I was completely surprised that students identified themselves based on their biological makeup, but almost all of them most valued cultural ethnicity on campus,” said Kaiser.While Kaiser acknowledges the need for further, more comprehensive research, she thinks her preliminary findings suggest that “perhaps students don’t believe that race as identified on college applications is identifying the type of diversity they find most rewarding.”Similarly, she said her work indicates that diversity means different things to different universities, and that schools aren’t necessarily “getting the type of diversity they want from the application form.”During her research, Kaiser also looked at DNA testing, a process that more people are turning to in an effort to determine their genetic heritage. In her paper, she cited the work of a teacher in Florida who had his students test their DNA as part of a class assignment. The majority of the students considered themselves white and of European descent, but the results showed that almost all of the students had mixed backgrounds, which included American Indian, African, and Asian genes.If DNA testing becomes more widely used, it “could blow the whole racial piece away, as more and more could check at least one box on the application form, and likely more than one,” said Kaiser. “It could really render race identification useless over time.”While much more work needs to be done on the topic, Kaiser is hopeful she can continue to study this area and help to shape an important dialogue.“Maybe,” she said, “we can find a better way to define diversity.”last_img read more
