The house is located in Coves Noves, on the northeast part of Minorca island, Spain, on a plot of 2600 sqm. The whole urbanization is built on a slope which gives each house a breathtaking sea view. However this specific plot, located on the top, also has a beautiful view towards Monte Toro, the highest mountain on the island. This inland view is moreover protected from further developments since it is classified as a protected green area.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe program from the client included 5 bedrooms, a garage, a pool and a strong wish of being able to enjoy both the sea and the mountain landscapes. In response to this requirement, we created a long platform which was quickly nicknamed “the catwalk” and which would connect both views. This platform was conceived as an outdoor space which would house the most important common areas (living and dining room) and could when necessary be protected from the wind through invisible sliding windows. In effect, the house was planned as a summer house in a local climate where people spend most of their time outdoors.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaAdemás, la pasarela, elemento lineal de hormigón, crea una clara división entre la zona de día y de noche. A ambos lados de la misma, una retícula de 3x3m organiza un conjunto de unidades pixeladas que contienen servicios y dormitorios; algunos de ellos con acceso directo a terrazas, jardín o patio. El romper el programa en unidades permitió evitar una imagen masiva e integrar la volumetría en el paisaje. La fusión entre arquitectura y naturaleza se enfatiza mediante un vacío que cruza la casa por debajo evitando bloquear conexiones visuales. La pasarela es un espacio abierto que se extiende en el paisaje con un porche en voladizo de 5m.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaMoreover, this concrete linear element creates a split between the day and night area. On both sides of it, a 3x3m grid organizes an ensemble of pixelated units that contain services and bedrooms; some of them with balconies, others with direct access to the garden. Breaking down the program into smaller units made the house look less massive and more integrated into the landscape. This merging of architecture and nature is further emphasized with a void that crosses under the house and so avoids blocking visual connections. The catwalk stands in opposition to the intimate night and service areas, thus spreading out into the landscape with a 5m cantilever roof. It is also from here one can reach all the rooms and where much of the everyday life takes place without ever losing the connection between the two main views. On each side of the catwalk, there are large sliding doors that can completely open up the space and create a 28m long catwalk that in our initial project ended with an infinity pool towards the sea. To further enhance the openness of this space, the ceiling was raised so that more daylight would come in. A feeling of lightness was achieved through tangencies between volumes.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!Longitudinal ElevationsSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe feeling of lightness of the column-free roof is achieved through two 1,2m high steel vierendeel beams embedded in concrete which support themselves on hidden steel brackets. The apparent hovering of the roof together with the strict tangencies between all volumes give the impression of a balancing assembly of pixels following the natural terrain slope. Pixels hold each other by compression In order to keep construction costs under control, local simple materials such as concrete blocks and white plaster where used for the facade.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow less5 Winning Ideas to Fill New York City’s Most Challenging SitesArchitecture NewsMilano Arch Week Publishes Program Featuring Talks by Stefano Boeri and Rem KoolhaasArchitecture News Share “COPY” Architects: NOMO STUDIO Area Area of this architecture project Area: 312 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: 2018 Manufacturers: Cortizo, Roca, Balay, Vogue Italia Alicia Casals Photographs: Adrià Goula Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses “COPY” Save this picture!© Adrià Goula+ 26Curated by Clara Ott Share Projects Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officeNOMO STUDIOOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEs MercadalSpainPublished on May 15, 2019Cite: “Villa Catwalk / NOMO STUDIO” [Villa Catwalk / NOMO STUDIO] 15 May 2019.

Facebook Twitter Court Rules Against Farmers’ Personal Privacy Court Rules Against Farmers’ Personal Privacy SHARE SHARE AFBF and the NPPC plan to appeal the ruling. Villwock said this ruling could make farmers less likely to sign up for government programs, “Farmers are asked to participate in a number of federal programs, but, if our information is going to become public, I am not sure I or many other farmers will want to participate in those programs.” AFBF and its co-plaintiff the National Pork Producers Council have 60 days to appeal the decision. Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Court Rules Against Farmers’ Personal Privacy The court concluded that no federally permitted livestock or poultry farmer is injured by such disclosure because the Clean Water Act mandates disclosure of information concerning permit issuance. For livestock and poultry farmers without a Clean Water Act permit, the court concluded that, so long as the farmer’s personal information can be found somewhere on the Internet, EPA’s distribution of that same information does not result in any injury to the farmer. The court noted that a farmer with a public Facebook page used to promote the farm or whose information could be found via search engine or any state regulatory website in any form has no right to sue to stop the federal government from compiling and distributing that information. Villwock told HAT having a Facebook page is not the same as having the confidential personal and business information you share with the EPA released to activist groups. Villwock said farmers have nothing to hide but feel the personal details of their operations should not be a matter of public record, “I would ask the general public: would they like their personal information, their address, and other private information made public so criminals and others could find out exactly where you live?” Bob Stallman, President of AFBF, said in a statement, “Farmers, ranchers, and citizens in general should be concerned about the court’s disregard for individual privacy. This court seems to believe that the Internet age has eliminated the individual’s interest in controlling the distribution of his or her personal information. We strongly disagree.” Previous articleUS Ethanol Production Down Last WeekNext articleIndiana Weather Forecast 1/29/2015 Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Jan 28, 2015 Don VillwockA federal district court in Minnesota dismissed a lawsuit seeking to block EPA from releasing the personal information of farmers. Last year a radical environmental group asked the EPA for the personal information of farmers who had been issued permits to operate livestock facilities. The EPA complied and released names, addresses, phone numbers, and even GPS coordinates of these operations. Outraged, the American Farm Bureau Federation and National Pork Producers Council petitioned to stop any further release of information. Late Tuesday, the court ruled the government could release this information. Don Villwock, President IFB is furious, “Farmers take their privacy and their records very seriously and only want to share with those who have a need to know or those who can help them in their business, but to release this information to a public database is deeply disturbing.” He added that activist groups with an agenda could use this information to harm a farming operation or do damage to its livestock. EPA has already released personal information of farmers and ranchers from 29 states.

Petitioner had argued that Facebook enables him to share knowledge and information on varied subjects, with his daughters, helping him to parent them even when he is posted in remote locations. Citing Facebook as an important tool for staying connected with their families, the Petitioner further submitted that social media portals help personnel in maintaining social relationships with friends and family even from remote locations. ‘With the advent of the internet age, in particular high speed internet, in connectivity over mobile networks, the soldiers have found an effective way to come closer to their friends, family and loved ones, in the virtual world, easing the stress otherwise suffered by the soldiers’, the Petitioner argued. Calling the said policy draconian, it was further contended by the Petitioner that the purported security concerns and risk of data breach, forming the basis of the impugned policy and direction, are not limited to soldiers only. Several members of the civil administration and political class who possess information of a much higher level of sensitivity than a regular soldier but the restrictions as imposed on the soldiers do not extend to them, making the policy arbitrary. The Petitioner said: ‘The ban imposed on the personnel of the Indian Army shows the distrust of the country for its own army officials.’ Centre, on the other hand, argued that Rules 19, 20 and 21 of the Army Rules, 1950 prohibit persons, subject to the Army Act, from taking active part in any society, institution or organization not recognized as part of the armed forces of the Union unless it be of recreational or religious nature. It was further argued by the Central Government that not all social media portals are banned for army personnel – they can take recourse to Skype, YouTube, and LinkedIn. After going through these submissions, the court observed that the impugned policy has not been issued impulsively but is preceded by a prolonged study of different aspects and data collated in this regard with particular instances and deliberations at the highest level thereon and has been issued after considering similar bans imposed by other countries on armed personnel. The court also relied upon the judgment of the Supreme Court in the Rafale Fighter Jets Procurement case wherein it was reiterated that though there is a general presumption against ousting the jurisdiction of the Courts, there are however certain areas of governmental activity, national security being the paradigm, which the Courts regard themselves as incompetent to investigate, beyond an initial decision as to whether the government’s claim is bona fide.The Court also took note of the submission of the Centre that army officers posting pictures and details of their posting locations in social media can easily convey a full picture to an expert espionage eye. Therefore, while dismissing the petition, the court highlighted that: ‘We may also notice that warfare and inter-country rivalries and animosities today are not confined to accession of territory and destruction of installations and infrastructure of enemy countries but also extend to influencing and affecting the economies and political stability of enemy country including by inciting civil unrest and disturbance and influencing the political will of the citizens of the enemy country.’Click here to download OrderRead Order Next Story

Powerofflowers/iStock(NEW YORK) — What would you do if your daughter was abroad in one of the areas most affected by coronavirus?That scenario became a reality for Tami Kinley, whose daughter, Lily, attends Franklin University in Ticino, Switzerland. Ticino shares a border with Lombardy, a region of Italy hit hard by COVID-19. So far, more than 600 cases of the virus have been confirmed in Italy. Kinley told ABC’s Cheri Preston on ABC News Radio’s “Perspective” podcast she wasn’t worried about the virus when news first broke about the virus.“I didn’t pay any attention to it, honestly,” Kinley said. “I just thought, well, this is something over there and it’s sort of coming over here.”But it wouldn’t be that way for long. Switzerland’s Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) confirmed one case of the coronavirus in the canton of Ticino, where Lily’s school was located.Kinley says she spoke to her daughter on the phone shortly after they found out about the case.“I’ll be honest,” Kinley said. “I didn’t go to sleep until 4 a.m. on Monday after I spoke to her.” Franklin University responded to the growing number of cases in and around Ticino by cancelling all school travel outside of Switzerland.“While we recognise how disappointing this decision is for students and their families, the health and well-being of our students and faculty remain paramount,” said Vice President and Dean of Academic Affairs Sara Steinert Borella in a statement.The administration thought the decision would have disappointed students, but Kinley believes spirits remained high.“I think there is some angst and anxiety, but they’re all together,” she told ABC News Radio. “They had a — I don’t know what this means — a ‘corona party’ where they cooked food.”Kinley also says she and Lily received an outpouring of support from friends and family, thanks to a Facebook post she wrote.“The link that I posted was actually a Franklin University disease specialist who has a child at Franklin, ” she says. “He was basically saying everybody put this in perspective. It is what it is. Be smart, be aware, and be logical. I sent the link to calm myself down and to calm others down and it worked.”Even though Kinley is separated from her daughter by thousands of miles and the Atlantic Ocean, she hopes the anxiety doesn’t get the best of her or the rest of their family.“What I’ve told my kids is support, and live life. Don’t let this cripple any of us,” Kinley says. “Do I worry sometimes? Yes, but I’m a mom!”Listen to the Tami Kinley discussing what it’s like to be the parent of a student studying abroad in a coronavirus-hit location on ABC News Radio’s award-winning news magazine program, taking you beyond the headlines of today’s stories and trends.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Beau Lund Written by August 5, 2020 /Sports News – National LeBron James says he misses his family while quarantined inside NBA bubble FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAshley Landis – Pool/Getty ImagesBy ABC News(ORLANDO, Fla.) — It’s been a “challenge” for LeBron James, who is adjusting to his new life inside the NBA bubble.The NBA season, which is officially underway, has rolled out new plans to keep players safe from COVID-19 by sequestering them inside Walt Disney World Resort hotels until the end of the season. USA Today reports that teams that made it to the second half of the season began quarantining roughly a month ago.That means that the players have not been able to physically interact with friends or family members, which James says has been a hard pill to swallow.“I miss the hell out of my family. My wife, my kids, my mother. And so on and so on,” the NBA MVP admitted to reporters after the Lakers triumphed over the Utah Jazz on Monday. “It’s a huge challenge.”The Laker has been married to wife Savannah since 2013 and they share three children together — LeBron Jr., 15, Bryce, 13, and 5-year-old Zhuri. Despite missing his family, James wants to make them proud by carrying the Lakers through another championship. The team stands to secure their 17th win, which would also be his fourth championship title.The 35-year-old also understands that he is in a position to use his platform to make a positive difference and speak out against social justice issues like systemic racism.“It’s given us the opportunity to every single day speak about, feel passionate about, whatever is going on in your personal life, whatever is going on in society and us trying to make a change,” he explained. “It’s being dynamic and being heard.”The Lakers face off against Oklahoma City Thunder Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. ET.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
