The Project consists on a restoration and addition of an existing house in the old part of the city of Acapulco, México. Acapulco in the 50’s and 60’s was a Hollywood Town, full of glamour and money, where all the rich and famous used to hang out from John Wayne to John F Kennedy and Maria Felix, where good taste and modern architecture, mixed with the beautiful landscape of the bay and cliffs, this condition has changed with the years, the city got old, needs urgent new infrastructure and hast lost some of this classic scent for most part of the city, this except for the old town, that still -in a decay way- the great modern living in the tropics. Save this picture!This is the case of this house, “casa 3”, situated in the original Acapulco Town, very near the yatch Club that held the nautical activities of the 1968 Olympics, a house build by functionalist architect Hector Mestre in the year 1953, in a complex of 5 house, this particular house with a special condition, that is placed right on the bay with no construction obstructing the view of the old port, the ancient fort and the Modern bay.Save this picture!Our clients asked for an addition and a renewal, for us the challenge was to conserve the original architecture with the new expectations of living in the 21’st century, more space of storage, new technology and new dynamics and programs in contemporary families.Save this picture!The addition consists, in redistributing the bathrooms, more open, much more space, and a new living-terrace-bar-dinning space with a new pool facing the bay, as the original pool was placed in a back terrace. The materials are place with the criteria of not competing with the old house but not to be lost with them. Showing what is new and what is old, with out making a competition was a clear strategy for us.Save this picture!The new area is the main heart of the house, articulating all of the other areas, including an old Salt-water pond in the lower part of the site.Project gallerySee allShow lessIlhavo City Library / ARX PortugalSelected ProjectsORDOS 100 #7: MOS ArchitectsArticles Share “COPY”center_img CopyHouses, Restoration•Acapulco, Mexico CopyAbout this officeat103OfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRestorationAcapulcoWoodRefurbishmentHousesMexicoPublished on January 06, 2009Cite: “House 3 / at103” 06 Jan 2009.

Bolivian Counter-Drug Police Seize 294 kg of Peruvian Cocaine

first_img The operation was conducted in the town of Laja located in the Altiplano area, 36 km away from La Paz, where the police discovered that the tanker had a double bottom where the drugs were hidden. On July 22, Bolivian counter drug police seized 294 kilograms of cocaine in a tanker truck coming from Peru, on the road joining Bolivia with Peru, the institution stated. “A tanker truck has been found on Desaguadero road (border with Peru), and 294 kilos of cocaine have been found during the operation. The controlled substance has been seized,” Counter Drug Prosecutor Marco Antonio Villa told the press. Bolivia has become a transit country for drugs headed towards Brazil and Europe, and counter drug authorities state that more than half of the cocaine seized annually comes from Peru. By Dialogo July 24, 2013 The prosecutor added that “two men were detained,” and will be brought to justice, although their nationalities have not been specified. The prosecutor said that “the cocaine came from Ilo (Peru), destined for Santa Cruz.” last_img read more

Apple Event on November 10: New MacBook Air, MacBook Pro Models Based on Apple Silicon Reported to Debut

first_imgApple is planning to launch its new 13-inch MacBook Air as well as 13- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models at the November 10 event, according to a report. The new MacBook models are likely to have the anticipated Apple silicon, which is said to be based on the company’s A14 Bionic SoC that is already powering the iPhone 12 series as well as the latest iPad Air models. The Cupertino company sent the media invite for the event on Monday, without detailing any specifics.The invite mentioned “One more thing” that is expected to be the new Mac machines with the Apple silicon, Bloomberg reports. These new machines are said to include the new 13-inch MacBook Air alongside the 13- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that all three are speculated to come with the new SoC.- Advertisement – Aside from the new silicon, Apple is busy developing macOS Big Sur as its next-generation Mac operating system that would start rolling out following the November 10 event. The new OS includes a list of changes to provide an experience that is in line with iOS and iPadOS.We, of course, need to wait until next week to see what Apple has this time — at its fourth big event of the year. The event, just like the previous ones, will take place virtually from the Apple Park, Cupertino.Are iPhone 12 mini, HomePod mini the Perfect Apple Devices for India? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. – Advertisement – In addition to the new MacBook models, Apple is reported to have a redesigned iMac in the works — alongside a new Mac Pro. Both new desktop offerings are also speculated to be based on the new silicon. Further, the new Mac Pro is said to be about half the size of the existing model, though it would look quite similar to the current design.Reports suggesting Apple’s move on from Intel chips emerged back in 2018. However, the company made it official at WWDC 2020 in June. It stated that the transition to the Apple silicon would begin later this year.Apple kicked off a Universal App Quick Start Programme to help developers switch to its native silicon ahead of the debut of the first new hardware. The transition would complete in about two years, the company said at the WWDC virtual event.- Advertisement – Apple is reportedly ramping up the production of the new MacBook models — with Foxconn manufacturing the new 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models and Quanta Computer building the new 16-inch MacBook Pro.The new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro in 13-inch size are said to be further ahead in production and are likely to receive their announcement at the November 10 event. However, Apple may take some time in bringing the 16-inch MacBook Pro to the market.Apart from moving on from Intel chips, the new MacBook models are said to have no significant design changes. This suggests that there would be the same aesthetics and the presence of a Magic Keyboard that we saw on the MacBook Air 2020 and the 13-inch MacBook Pro refresh earlier this year.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Dr. Yu Encourages Awareness Of World Breastfeeding Week

first_imgFacebook27Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Dr. Diana Yu, Health Officer for Thurston and Mason CountiesThis week is World Breastfeeding Week (WBW), a time when people across the globe come together to celebrate breastfeeding.  Come celebrate WBW in downtown Olympia on August 3.  The South Sound Breastfeeding Network will be sponsoring the World Breastfeeding Week Walk and Resource Fair at the Hands On Children’s Museum from 8:45 AM – 11:00 AM.  All families are welcome!  For more information, check out www.southsoundbreastfeeding.org.Multiple scientific studies show that breastfeeding has numerous benefits for mom and baby. Breastfeeding lowers the mother’s risk of developing type 2 diabetes, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and postpartum depression. Breastfed babies are more protected from serious diseases like asthma, obesity, diabetes, childhood leukemia, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).  In Washington State, over 89% of moms and baby begin breastfeeding and that is great news!   However, only 34% of these babies are still breastfeeding at their first birthday, even though the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends all babies breastfeed that long.One factor that makes a big difference helping women achieve their breastfeeding goals is support.  This year’s theme for WBW is “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers.”  This theme highlights the importance of providing support for breastfeeding families.  Sometimes families are looking for support as they start out breastfeeding, sometimes they have questions about how to manage returning to work and breastfeeding, or sometimes they just want to swap stories about their new little loved one.  Having a reliable, caring source of help and information is vital to success.In Thurston County, we are fortunate to have great resources for breastfeeding families.  One local resource is La Leche League (LLL).  LLL is an international organization that works locally to “help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education…” LLL offers support over the phone, email, via text, and in person at meetings.  Their support is offered to anyone who wants to breastfeed their baby and their support is always free.Locally LLL meets the fourth Monday of each month at WomanCare Offices located at 205 Lilly Rd NE, Olympia at 6 PM.  Fathers are welcome at this meeting as well.  They also have meetings on the second Friday of each month at the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation located at 2300 East End St NW, Olympia at 10:30 AM.  Contact them at 360-975-4826 or 1-800-599-7650, or email at [email protected] Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program also provides support for families receiving services from the local clinics.  The Washington State WIC program offers pregnant women and new moms a variety of resources from educational materials and classes to lactation consultants and breastfeeding peer counselors.  The peer-counseling program is one of the newest components to WIC services.  Breastfeeding peer counselors are local community women who have successfully breastfed, received training in breastfeeding education, and are able to help women reach their goals for breastfeeding.  To learn more about this program contact your local WIC clinic.  To see if you qualify for WIC Services, contact the Family Health Hotline at 1-800-322-2588.Come to the World Breastfeeding Week Walk and Resource Fair on August 3 at 8:45 am and learn what it’s all about!last_img read more

Fair Haven Mulls Property Seizure for New Borough Hall

first_imgBy Natalie B. Anzarouth |FAIR HAVEN – Borough officials have authorized the use of eminent domain to acquire a vacant property at 626 River Road, a parcel the governing body has eyed for the location of its new municipal building.During an Oct. 9 meeting the Borough Council adopted an ordinance enabling the acquisition of the former Sunoco gas station if an agreement cannot be reached with the property owner.Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli disclosed the borough’s plan to construct a new three-story municipal building, which would house a police station, Department of Public Works offices, administrative offices, council chambers and a court room and general meeting area. The construction would also include 42 additional parking spaces.The mayor and council agreed that the level of services the borough offers has greatly increased over time and with it the need for real estate. Due to the deteriorating conditions of both the borough police station and the DPW, the governing body is seeking to acquire and redevelop the Sunoco property.The borough’s current police facility at 35 Fisk St. is a former schoolhouse that was retrofitted in the ’20s and no longer meets the needs of a modern police force, Lucarelli said.“It is infested. It does not meet any of the current building codes,” said Lucarelli, adding that the facility lacks ADA compliance, makes the processing of prisoners “highly problematic” and also lacks the appropriate locker space for the female officers. “This I find to be unacceptable.”Lucarelli described the state of the current DPW facility as being in an “advanced state of disrepair,” with roof leaks and improper heating systems. “It doesn’t meet any OSHA (Operation Safety and Health Administration) standards,” the mayor said.He said the borough investigated fixing the existing facilities but even a budget of $1.5 to $2 million wouldn’t fix many of the underlying infrastructure and plumbing issues.If the borough acquires the Sunoco property, it has tapped Eli Goldstein of Maplewood architectural firm The Goldstein Partnership, to draft detailed concept plans to be presented to the public.Lucarelli said the governing body hopes to purchase the property through negotiation but eminent domain is a viable option if a deal can’t be struck. According to Lucarelli, the borough has made several attempts to contact the property owner, including three certified letters, all of which were returned.Resident Diane Mevorah asked the mayor and council to be more transparent about the development plans and wondered why residents are just receiving notice about a project that is 18 months in the making.“We are being as transparent as practicality and statute allow. It would be impractical for us to start a conversation about doing a development on a piece of land that we didn’t have control of,” said Lucarelli, who noted the property had erroneously appeared on a Registered Open Space Inventory, which previously prohibited the site for government use.The plan is to build a smaller DPW facility and move on-site borough vehicles to a 2,000-square-foot structure at Fair Haven fields, though Mevorah expressed concern over the preservation of that natural setting, if that size structure with park maintenance equipment and vehicles is introduced.“The idea is to get the intensity of the industrial use out of the residential area,” Lucarelli said. “Same thing with the police station. What the state will allow us to do is to put the parks maintenance equipment in a facility there. What we’re looking at right now is just north of where the gardens are situated (just before the Methodist Church).”Lucarelli said the borough hopes to offset the cost of the project by subdividing the current DPW property at 1 Allen St. into 10 lots that could be sold.“After we’ve sold off the property, it would come to a net neutral payment for taxpayers. We feel this is the best course,” Lucarelli added, stating that the 35 Fisk St. site could also be sold and a state grant could be used to replace the on-site community center with a new facility in the town’s library.Though no concept plans have been drafted, Lucarelli said the construction would adhere to borough ordinances and would not exceed 35 feet in height.This article was first published in the Oct. 18 – Oct. 24, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

New figures highlight huge incidence of drug driving on Donegal roads

first_imgRecent figures have highlighted the ongoing spike in drug-driving in the county with the number of drivers arrested for the offence at an all-time high. Locally, 28 drivers have been arrested in the first two quarters of this year alone. A huge spike when compared to the same period in 2018 when 19 people were arrested in the entire year.The news comes following the annual Road Safety Authority academic lecture in Dublin on Monday. Since April 2017, when the Garda deployed new roadside drug-detection equipment nationally, some 68 per cent of drivers who tested positive for drugs had a positive test for cannabis.After cannabis, cocaine was the next most popular drug, showing up in 37 per cent of positive samples.Other drugs which he said were appearing in analyses were benzodiazepines such as diazepam and flurazepam, opioids such as heroin and codeine and stimulants such as flephedrone.Others noted were pregabalin or gabapentin, used in the treatment of epilepsy and generalised anxiety disorder; and zolpidem or zopiclone, used in the treatment of insomnia. Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Mr. Shane Ross said: “Driving under the influence of drugs has been a statutory offence since 1961 but it wasn’t until 2017, with the introduction of Preliminary Drug Testing, that we had a drug testing device capable of testing for the presence of drugs in drivers at the roadside and in the Garda station.“It’s clear that its introduction has resulted in an increase in drug driving detections, but the results presented today show that continued enforcement and education effort is required to tackle this killer behaviour.”However, despite the huge incidence of drug driving, alcohol remained the most frequently detected drug in the county.189 people have been arrested for driving while over the legal alcohol limit in Q1 and Q2 of this year, 23 more when compared to the same period previous.Assistant Commissioner, David Sheahan, Roads Policing, An Garda Síochána, said: “Since 2017, Gardaí have been given powers to conduct Preliminary Drug Testing at the roadside or in Garda stations. “This has allowed the Gardaí to establish roadside checkpoints for testing drivers for drugs. with similar powers to mandatory alcohol testing.As a result, detections for drug driving have risen significantly. Drivers need to realise that the days of avoiding detection for drug driving are over and that we are determined to stamp out this killer behaviour.”The importance of road safety and the dangers that exist on a daily basis on our roads will be highlighted to Donegal students at the Road Safe Show in the Aura Leisure Centre Letterkenny over the next two days.New figures highlight huge incidence of drug driving on Donegal roads was last modified: October 11th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Groves ‘counting the seconds’ to his return

first_imgGeorge Groves says he cannot wait to return to the ring against European super-middleweight champion Christopher Rebrasse this weekend.Saturday’s WBC world title eliminator at Wembley Arena will be Groves’ first outing since his second attempt to take Carl Froch’s WBA and IBF belts ended in defeat in May.The European title and the vacant WBC Silver title will also be on the line when Groves, 26, faces the 28-year-old Frenchman.Hammersmith’s Groves, who has also been British and Commonwealth champion, declared:  ‘’I’m chomping at the bit.“Obviously less is more at this stage but we’ve had a very good camp and we’ve enjoyed ourselves.“Now I can’t wait to get in there and rock ‘n’ roll. I’m counting down the seconds before I can get back in the ring and back to what I do best.’’Rebrasse has won 22, lost two and drawn three of his 27 professional fights.Groves, meanwhile, has a record of 19-2, having been unbeaten before his two losses against Froch.The first of those defeats was hugely controversial as the challenger had floored Froch and was ahead of the judges’ scorecards before the fight was abruptly stopped in the ninth round.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
