House at Pipers End / Níall McLaughlin Architects

Piper’s End is a hamlet supporting a mixed farming and commuting residential community. It is in the Green Belt zone around London. Local farming includes market gardening and bloodstock. The topography is very gently undulating but feels almost flat. This new house was given planning consent despite the zoning and the fact that it replaced a previous building of local historic importance. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThe client for this project is our Quantity Surveyor. He worked with the practice since its inception in 1990, doing all of out first projects until he moved on to greater things. This is the second house we have built for the family. Since the first one, he has travelled the world with his wife and daughter, working in Asia, Australia and the USA. He has collaborated with an impressive range of international architects. The family returned with a collection of travel souvenirs and they wanted a modern house around which to display their gatherings. Save this picture!© Nick KaneWe enjoyed the matter of fact arrangement of farm buildings in the area. Buildings, glasshouses and sheds, devoted to particular purposes, are set out side by side in a laconic, almost offhand fashion.  Things are juxtaposed in an ordered way relating to the demands of particular processes. The brick house is a couple of feet away from the wooden shed, which butts up to the open steel hay barn alongside the concrete byre. Buildings are stacked loosely like books on a shelf. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThis site is a long narrow enclosure with an orchard at one end and an open paddock at the other. You enter it from the side at one fixed point dictated by the old entrance. We chose to position the house so that it divides the site between the paddock and a smaller enclosed garden. New planting will reinforce the separation. Buildings were organised in a row, each doing something different, each made from different materials, each a slightly different length. They are lined up in parallel rows with one hard margin and one stepped edge where different sized blocks are sorted by length. We like to imagine that they might have been bought from a catalogue and set out using the simplest rule possible. The blocks are; Silver Birch, a wooden cabinet, a vitrine, a steel canopy, a concrete water trough. It is our intention that they should stand separately but interrelate in use. Save this picture!The wooden cabinet is on the north side and you enter through it. It is intended that it should screen the open space of the paddock from the person arriving. You go through a modest doorway into the stair hall. The rooms in the wooden box all service the building. They are staircases, bathrooms, utility rooms and so on. As you move through, you come upon the open space of the larger box, the vitrine. Principal rooms open off a double height space, which forms the centre of the house. A substantial glazed screen faces the garden terrace. It frames wide views of the paddock to the south. So you discover the site by passing through the building. The glass wall is shaded by the next element, a steel shed-like canopy with a perforated roof. The canopy covers a terrace that is contained by a concrete pool. The pool reflects light into the house. Ponies and horses in the paddock will use it. They can drink from it and it forms a natural barrier to prevent them from walking into the house.Project gallerySee allShow less’Wolf D.

Media, human rights groups call on Turkmenistan to free Nepeskuliev

first_imgDear President Berdimuhamedov,July 7, 2016 marks one year since Saparmamed Nepeskuliev, a freelance journalist who contributed to RFE/RL’s Turkmen Service and Alternative Turkmenistan News, has been in custody. For much of that time he has been in incommunicado detention. We the undersigned, are writing to call for an end to his wrongful imprisonment and urge his prompt release.Prior to his disappearance, Mr. Nepeskuliev reported on economic development, infrastructure, social services, and education in Turkmenistan’s western regions with the aim of informing citizens about challenges facing their communities and of helping them to improve their lives. He went missing in Avaza on July 7, 2015 and, after three weeks, on July 28, his family learned that he was being detained in a prison in Akdash. On August 31, 2015, in closed proceedings, Mr. Nepeskuliev was convicted on fabricated charges of narcotics possession and sentenced to three years in prison by a Turkmenbashi city court.In light of concerns expressed by the UN Human Rights Committee about conditions in detention in Turkmenistan and the risk of ill-treatment including torture (See the Human Rights Committee, CCPR/C/TKM/CO/1, para. 9), we fear for Mr. Nepeskuliev’s health and safety. We have not been able to obtain any information about Mr. Nepeskuliev’s welfare since September 2015. Our concern for Mr. Nepeskuliev is intensified by our recollection of the fate of Ogulsapar Muradova, an RFE/RL contributor who died in a Turkmen prison under suspicious circumstances in September 2006.Mr. Nepeskuliev’s case has been reviewed by the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, which in December 2015 designated his detention “arbitrary” because he “has been held incommunicado with no access to a legal representative; he was deprived of his right to legal assistance of his own choosing” and he “has been deprived of liberty for having peacefully exercised his right to freedom of expression as guaranteed by article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.” The Working Group called for his release and that he be compensated.Numerous rights groups and NGOs have protested Mr. Nepeskuliev’s detention, and called on EU officials to raise his case during the recent EU-Turkmenistan Human Rights Dialogue in May.As representatives of our respective organizations and leaders of the international NGO community, Mr. President, we are committed to promoting and protecting the same international conventions and standards guaranteeing international law and human rights that Turkmenistan has pledged to uphold. Mr. Nepeskuliev’s conviction on trumped-up charges and his incommunicado detention are violations of his rights as guaranteed by Turkmenistan’s constitution and its commitments under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Turkmenistan is a party. We call for his immediate release.Sincerely, Judy Gearhart, Executive Director, International Labor Rights Forum Thomas Kent, President, RFE/RL, Inc.

Nepeskuliev, who contributed to both RFE/RL’s Turkmen Service and Alternative Turkmenistan News, has been kept in incommunicado detention since July 7, 2015, when he disappeared while visiting the Caspian Sea resort city of Avaza. Convicted in closed proceedings on fabricated charges of narcotics possession on August 31, 2015, nothing has been heard from or about Nepeskuliev since September 2015.

OCHS Adds Career Technical Education to Curriculum

first_imgStudents will have virtual classes Monday. Ocean City High School will be offering a Career Technical Education (CTE) program in the field of marketing/marketing management, according to a school press release.In order to complete the Career Technical Education program, students must successfully complete the three-course requirement.This includes fashion marketing and merchandising, hospitality, tourism, and real estate services, and marketing and sports entertainment.Students in the program must participate in the Career and Technical Student Organization, DECA, and attain a passing score on the A*S*K* Institute Fundamental Marketing Concepts Exam.“Bringing the Career Technical Education Program and the Structured Learning Experiences to Ocean City High School was of great importance to (High School Principal) Dr. Matthew Jamison, the administration, the School Board, and me,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Taylor said in the release.She continued, “Our goal with our students is to always prepare them for the responsibilities that will be expected of them when they move on to their collegiate and post-secondary careers. We strongly believe that the High School CTE program will expand those opportunities for our students to learn general workplace responsibilities, as well as begin to understand the mechanics of their desired career field.”The Career Technical Education programs are designed to bring experiential career interests and coursework together through the use of Structured Learning Experiences.The CTE programs of study requires at least one Structured Learning Experience (SLE) during the program of studies.The SLEs are experiential, educational activities that are designed to provide students with exposure to the requirements and responsibilities of specific job titles or job groups.These supervised activities aim to assist students in gaining employment skills and making career and education decisions.They can include job shadowing, cooperative education experiences, volunteering, apprenticeships, internships, or school-based enterprises.In addition to off-campus opportunities, the school store, Raider Retailers, will provide an on-campus Structured Learning Experience opportunity for students in the program.Once all of the CTE requirements are met, students will be awarded a certificate of completion and will be able to utilize their CTE experience in their college and post-secondary planning.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s club hosts bra drive

first_imgThis week, Saint Mary’s Women in Healthcare hosted its inaugural bra drive as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The group planned to hang the bras across the Lake Marian Bridge in the center of campus to draw attention to women’s health.Co-president of the club, Alayna Frauhiger, said Saint Mary’s Women in Healthcare is a student organization that serves as a resource for women interested in medical graduate programs. Throughout the year, it usually sponsors an alumnae panel for women interested in healthcare and provides academic support.Caitlyn Jordan | The Observer Frauhiger said she first heard of the “Bras Across the Bridge” idea online through the Feel Your Boobies Foundation; she brought the idea to other committee members, and they decided to begin a new tradition.“I thought we could do [the bra chain] on a smaller scale since we are an all women’s campus, and it’s important to know the risk factors for breast cancer,” she said.The main idea behind the slogan “Bras Across the Bridge” is that bras support women each day, and together women can support each other, Frauhiger said.She said each bra will have a pink ribbon pinned to it for breast cancer awareness.“It’s humbling, too, to see [the bras] up there, because it’s something we take for granted, because we wear bras each day, but some people have that taken away,” she said.The bras were hung in the Student Center Atrium on Tuesday night due to rain, but Frauhiger said the importance of hanging the bras from a bridge is really about awareness.After hanging the chain of bras, the club hosted a yoga class charging either $2 or bra donation, Frauhiger said.“We wanted to do something in October for Breast Cancer Awareness, and we didn’t want to ask for money. So [our event] is really about awareness,” she said.Some of the donations have come from people affected by breast cancer. She said that should be important to students, because women of all ages are being diagnosed with breast cancer.Frauhiger said in addition to raising awareness, bras from the event will be donated to the local YWCA.“Students should want to be a part of something bigger,” she said. “It’s really about women supporting other women, whether or not you know someone affected by breast cancer or not.”Tags: bra drive, breast cancer awareness, saint mary’s, SMC Women in Healthcarelast_img read more

WATCH: PSW Demonstrates Its Well Control Response

first_imgPSW Group has taken a strategic step to provide operators with a capping stack as part of Norwegian oil & gas emergency response plans.PSW Group’s capping stack was mobilized and deployed in Fensfjorden on the 22nd of August, as demonstration of the company’s ability to immediately respond to a well control incident.In preparation for their first operated well, Wellesley Petroleum tested the mobilization and deployment procedures of PSW Group’s stack to ensure its well could be capped within a 72 hour target. The exercise not only tested the capping stack and deployment team, but the associated support systems in Wellesley and Well Expertise incident teams.“The capping stack deployment exercise with our Well Incident Team has increased our knowledge and confidence to react in a well control situation. We are very pleased with the collaborative efforts from all concerned,” says Callum Smyth, country manager i Wellesley Petroleum.The capping stack is stored at the PSW Group facilties at Mongstad and has a 24/7 duty team available.“Our capping stack can be ready at Mongstad quayside within 24 hours of notification. We have the facilities, tools and personnel to maintain, test and mobilise the stack, as well as deploy and install on the relevant well,” says Oddbjørn Haukøy, CEO of PSW Group.last_img read more
