The project is the fourth building completed by the practice in the Netherlands, the country in which founding director Tony Fretton has held a professorship since 1999, as Chair of Architectural Design & Interiors at Technical University of Delft.Save this picture!© Peter CookRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEALocated near the Vondelpark, Solid 11 is one of three new-build projects designed by Tony Fretton Architects on inner city sites released by the relocation of hospitals and industry, the others being Andreas Ensemble in Amsterdam West and de Prinsendam Overhoeks.Save this picture!© Peter CookCommissioned by Dutch housing association Stadgenoot, the building is an example of a “solid”, a new highly durable and sustainable typology devised by Stadgenoot which is presented to the market as a constructed shell, offering flexibility to the building’s tenants to decide on the size, configuration and use of space.Save this picture!© Peter CookThe building is one of three in a masterplan devised by the late Belgian architect Jo Crepain. The masterplan organises the buildings in sequence along Constantijn Huygenstraat separated by public spaces. Each building is similar in form and alignment and configured as a pair of parallel blocks with a private open space between them.Save this picture!site planSolid 11 is the third building in the sequence and is sited next to Jacob van Lennep canal. Unlike the other two buildings, the design of which has been tailored to a specific purpose as social housing and a psychiatric hospital, Solid 11 has been designed to provide flexible space for a range of activities including apartments, workspaces, a hotel, shops, cafes and restaurants and public facilities such as a kindergarten. As in the Red House, a private town house in Chelsea completed by the practice in 2001, spaces are architecturally powerful yet non-specific, inviting a variety of uses.Save this picture!© Peter CookThe client Stadgenoot required the main elements of the building to have a 200-year life span. The facade has been designed as self-supporting. The brickwork piers are built off the basement walls and are fixed to the concrete frame with stainless steel ties. The horizontal spandrels are precast concrete, faced with the same brick, and are built into the piers. The bricks used are charcoal-fired Petersen bricks, reddish brown on the outer facades and yellowish white in the courtyard. On the ground floor the brick piers are clad with highly durable, red porphyry natural stone.Save this picture!© Peter CookThe penthouse pavilions on the roof of the building and the recessed star-shaped elements on the 4th and 5th floors of the building’s front façade feature highly reflective structural glass curtain walls.Save this picture!© Peter CookA key element of the design of the building is the central courtyard extending from ConstantijnHuygenstraat, which will contain shops, cafes and public facilities overlooked by access balconies on the upper floors. Given the prominent position of the building next to the canal, it is intended that the courtyard will become a local public place and a neighbourhood in itself. The courtyard is protected from traffic noise on ConstantijnHuygenstraat by a 6-storey high glass acoustic screen. Behind this screen glass bridges supported by abstract steel trees connect the pre-cast concrete access balconies on the opposite sides of the courtyard.Save this picture!ground floor planThe doors are tall bronze powder-coated steel doors on the ground floor and bronze anodized or white powder-coated aluminium doors on the floors above. The stairs of the building are generous porphyry-clad stairs on the ground floor and pre-cast terrazzo on the floors above.Save this picture!© Peter CookIn the architecture there is a play between the abstract building form, the expressiveness of its materials of dark brick and porphyry and metal tree forms, and recognisable elements from other architecture that are freely transformed.Project gallerySee allShow lessOil Silo Home / PinkCloud.DKArticlesRiga International Airport Winning Proposal / Haptic ArchitectsArticlesProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

Chief of staff lashes out at army’s media critics

Basbug of failing to mount an adequate response to the latest PKK offensive and, in particular, sending insufficient reinforcements to the eastern regions where the PKK rebels are operating.During a visit to the mausoleum of the Turkish republic’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, in Ankara on 2 May, Gen. Basbug accused his media critics of treachery. “Not even the newspapers at the time of the armistice were as treacherous,” he said, referring to papers that criticised the Turkish resistance at the time of the Armistice of Moudros in October 1918.The head of the Contemporary Journalists Association, Ahmet Abakay, described the general’s comments as “irresponsible” and “very dangerous.” Reporters Without Borders agrees with him that they constitute incitement to violence, inasmuch as they could encourage acts of reprisals against the media by Turkish nationalists.Reporters Without Borders urges the Turkish authorities to act with caution and refrain from ill-judged statements.Taraf often criticises the army and manages to get hold of classified documents that reflect badly on it. While not a pro-government newspaper, it shares one of the goals of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), which is to weaken the army’s influence in Turkish society.

Henderson hits midseason scoring slump for Orange while battling back spasms

September 17, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ercinbyyl.

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 28, 2015 at 12:10 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Before transferring from Tennessee Tech to Syracuse this offseason, Diamond Henderson had succeeded, particularly at scoring, on every level she played.And after finding a rhythm from Dec. 19 through Jan. 8 — she averaged 17.7 points over the six-game stretch — it looked like that trend would continue. But in the past five games, she’s scored just 8.2 points per contest.“Teams notice that she’s a great player and they don’t let her get easy catches,” Orange head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “They’re game-planning for her.”So far, Henderson’s slump hasn’t cost SU, coinciding with a five-game winning streak. She is still No. 23 Syracuse’s (15-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) third-leading scorer, but if her drop-off continues the Orange could struggle to find points off the bench. At the beginning of the season, Henderson said adjusting to the ACC would be one of her biggest challenges, which has proven to be true.Henderson’s up-and-down season continued against North Carolina State on Sunday when she scored just five points and only played nine minutes due to back spasms. Hillsman saw she wasn’t going after loose balls the way she normally does, which was a sign he should take her out. Though he said it’s not serious and didn’t know if it affected her in prior games, Hillsman chose to keep her out for the majority of Sunday’s game instead of risking that the injury would worsen.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You got to be able to manage your players and know that we have a lot of basketball left,” Hillsman said. “… Back spasms are muscular and they go away and she’ll be back and she’ll be ready to roll.”In three second-half minutes on Sunday, Henderson committed a foul and a turnover. Against Wake Forest on Jan. 15, she shot 3-for-17 from the field.Though her injury might not be serious, her lack of recent point production might be.Entering the season, Henderson was expected to pick up the scoring void early on left by the injured Brittney Sykes, who was still recovering after tearing her right ACL and meniscus in March.Sykes came back in December, but in just her third game tore the same ACL again and won’t return this season. As a result, more responsibility has fallen on Henderson to contribute offensively — which is her strong suit, anyway.“Being able to read the defender,” Henderson said before the season started of her offensive strengths. “If they give me the lane, I’ll take it, and if they give me the jumper, I’ll take it.”But in the past five games, she’s scored more than eight points just once. Hillsman said the reason for this is because opposing teams are locking down on her. Henderson’s been forced to either dribble or pass. While she hasn’t had an assist in the past three games, he said she’s doing a good job making the right pass that leads to a teammate’s assist.And while she’s been contributing with her passing, Hillsman said before the season that her job is to score. With Syracuse’s next three games being against ranked opponents, it would help the Orange if Henderson returned to the way she was playing a month ago.“She’s a great offensive threat,” SU guard Alexis Peterson said. “We all go through those slumps. She’s been a little banged up so we know that come Thursday, Diamond will be back and she’ll be in full force.” Commentslast_img read more

Business briefs

December 25, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: yzhnxslpc.

first_imgCVS talking about acquiring Sav-on BOISE, Idaho – Drugstore chain CVS Corp. said Thursday it has been in discussions with Boise-based Albertson’s Inc. regarding the purchase of the supermarket chain’s Sav-on and Osco drugstores. But CVS, a Rhode Island-based company that operates more than 5,400 retail and specialty pharmacy stores nationwide, said no agreement on any transaction between the company and Albertson’s has been reached. It canceled a planned conference call with analysts Thursday morning after reports that the supermarket chain had ceased negotiating with bidders and was planning alternatives to selling the entire company. The New York Times cited unidentified sources Thursday in saying Albertson’s broke off negotiations Wednesday night with a group of investors that was bidding for the company. The newspaper said the company terminated talks with a group that had been the leading bidder in an auction to buy the supermarket chain for approximately $9.6 billion in cash and stock, or about $26 per share. Agency accepts energy-firm pact WASHINGTON – The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said Thursday it has accepted a $512 million settlement with Reliant Energy Inc., California utilities and commission staff to resolve claims stemming from the 2000-01 Western energy crisis. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Specifically, the settlement resolves claims that the Houston-based merchant generator charged unfairly high prices for electricity during the crisis. “This marks another significant milestone in bringing closure to the 2000-2001 energy crisis,” FERC Chairman Joseph T. Kelliher said. Reliant officials did not immediately return a call for comment. The commission has now accepted or helped secure settlements stemming from the energy crisis that total more than $6.3 billion, he said. Civil charges filed against managers WASHINGTON – The Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday filed civil charges against two former San Francisco hedge-fund managers, accusing them of making thousands of illegal trades that cheated mutual funds out of $49 million between 2000 and 2003. Brent Federighi, 34, and Michael Hoffman, 42, were accused of making the trades on behalf of the $130 million Ilytat hedge fund, which they co-managed. Federighi was also charged with his trading in the $55 million Gage Capital hedge fund, which he managed after Ilytat closed. “We were disappointed that they decided to go ahead with the filing of the lawsuit,” said Bill Goodman, an attorney for Federighi. “It has utterly no merit whatsoever, and we’re convinced that we will prevail in court.” An attorney for Hoffman was out of the country and could not immediately be reached for comment. UPS pilots seek impasse in talks ATLANTA – UPS pilots will ask the National Mediation Board to declare contract talks at an impasse and start a countdown toward what would be their first strike, union officials said Thursday. “Our hand has been forced,” said Tom Nicholson, president of the Independent Pilots Union, which represents 2,400 UPS fliers. “We no longer believe UPS is serious about reaching an agreement.” But UPS spokesman Mark Giuffre said that the two sides were making meaningful progress in talks this week and that the company expects a negotiated settlement. UPS and its pilots have been negotiating for more than three years on a new labor agreement that would replace their current deal, with federal mediators overseeing recent talks. Nicholson said the two sides remain about $40 million apart.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

I think everybody is aware of that. His goal is the right goal, – we have often discussed it.“If he has the opportunity to go to a Champions League team, that’s the crème de la crème of club soccer then you have to do that, with all the respect obviously to Fulham, as he often mentions.“But you want to play in the biggest club competition in the world and that’s the European Champions League and hopefully something will happen over the next couple of weeks.“If it doesn’t happen then he has to keep pounding away and knocking at the door.”Follow West London Sport on Twitter Find us on Facebooklast_img read more

DaVinci Resolve Being Weird? This Is Probably Why

December 12, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: kkcykwsge.

first_imgIf you don’t know how to use them, DaVinci Resolve’s Auto Select controls can trip up your workflow. Here’s everything you need to know about this highly useful (but sometimes tricky) tool.Whenever you jump headfirst into new software, there’s always that one feature that keeps tripping you up, and it usually takes a bit of time to figure out what is going wrong. In DaVinci Resolve that feature is the Auto Select control.It might be one of the most important functions on the timeline because it will directly cause edits on the various tracks on your timeline to perform differently. The Auto Select is a multipurpose control that can increase the efficiency of an edit. What does it do? Its function is to allow editors to specify which tracks will undergo changes during an edit to multiple tracks.For example, in the screenshot below, I want to make an insert edit with the video and audio from the source monitor. I want the media to land in V1 and A1, so I have selected those tracks. I want the current media on those tracks to ripple forward, and I also need the score on A3 to remain as it is, and for the clip in V2 to continue the fade out.However, when I do so, the insert edit has affected all of the tracks with clips that extend through the marked area. It’s separated the video on V2, along with the score on A3, even though I was only inserting it to tracks V1 and A1. This is because the Auto Select is on for all tracks (it’s on by default). Now, let’s deactivate the Auto Select by turning off the Auto Select button on the track tools.Here, I’ve turned Auto Select off on tracks V2 and A3, and now when I insert edit, something a little different happens.Both the video and audio from the two deactivated tracks have been omitted from the process.We can see from this very simple edit that the Auto Select controls can be ideal for editing multiple tracks — or cause headaches if you only want to affect one track.An obvious question is Why not just lock the track? When you lock a track, you completely remove the ability to perform any edit on the track or the individual clips. There may be some circumstances when this is the better tool to use — perhaps locking down a score to remain in place. But this is precisely the point of Auto Select: you are not disabling edits, you’re just removing the track from a multi-track operation — and there are plenty of operations that will respond differently depending on the state of Auto Select:CuttingRipple cuttingCopyingDeleting clipsDeleting gapsSelecting edit pointsSelecting clipsMarking clipsMatch framePasting clipsPaste insertInsert editRipple overwrite editFinding gapsUsing the Selection Follows Playhead function.Further, you can also manually override the Auto Select function by manually clicking on a clip on a track that doesn’t have Auto Select active — an operation that isn’t possible with a locked track.If you’re an editor who loves to keep your hands on the keyboard as much as possible, you’ll be happy to know that you can manage up to eight video and eight audio tracks with shortcuts. You can turn each video track’s Auto Select on and off with keyboard shortcuts F1 through to F8, and audio tracks Ctrl+shift+F1 through to F8 (Option+CMD if you’re using a mac).Last year, when I was undergoing training on Resolve 12.5, the course leader said that Auto Select is one of those edit functions that you have to try and perform to understand how it works, and I want to echo those words. As with the Slip and Slide trim edits, Auto Select controls can be a little confusing when you’re simply reading about them. But once you open Resolve and perform a few multi-track edits with the Auto Select, you’ll see how beneficial the control is. If you’re here solely because your timeline has been playing up and you’re not sure why, well, now you have an answer.Lewis McGregor is a certified BlackMagic Design DaVinci Resolve Trainer.last_img read more

Ind vs WI 3rd Test: Dhoni puts India in command

November 28, 2019 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ixyfmqzbo.

first_imgIndia skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni top-scored with an unbeaten 65 in a strong batting show as India strengthened its position in the third cricket Test against the West Indies by taking a healthy 104-run lead on day three here on Friday. Score | PhotosAs many as four visiting batsmen scored fifties as India, resuming at eight for no loss, ended the day at 308 for six while replying to hosts’ 204 all out.Dhoni shared 103-run sixth wicket stand with Suresh Raina (50) and made sure that the good work of opener Abhinav Mukund (62), VVS Laxman (56) Virat Kohli (30) does not go waste.West Indies, deprived of services of Ravi Rampaul and handicapped by a hobbling Darren Sammy, never quite wilted under a scorching sun and on a flat pitch on a day when 94 overs were bowled at Windsor Park.Nearly 90 overs were lost on the first two days of the match due to poor light and rain but no such problem emerged on Friday.India lost two early wickets of Murali Vijay (1) and Rahul Dravid (5) but thereafter steadily mounted their total without ever dominating a depleted attack.Dhoni, played his first innings of substance of tour, and when on 52 completed 3000 runs in Test cricket in the 86th innings of his 57th Test.The Indian captain has so far batted for 157 minutes and struck three fours from 109 balls. He walked in when India were frittering away the advantage, losing three wickets in the afternoon to nothing balls.Mukund, Kohli and Laxman were all guilty of poor judgment as the visitors lost three wickets in the middle session.advertisementMukund had serenely moved to his top Test score of 62 when he shaped to play a rising leg-spin from Bishoo towards mid-wicket but only edged it on to his pads and the lobbed chance was gratefully accepted by Adrian Barath at forward short leg.Kohli seemed intent on making up for his lost chances of the series and had reached 30 without much ado but poked at a harmless delivery from Sammy down the leg-side and was brilliantly caught low by wicket-keeper Carlton Baugh.Laxman’s dismissal was a freak one when he allowed a leg-spin delivery from Shivnarine Chanderpaul to go to Baugh but his backfoot lost contact with the ground for just a fraction of second, which was enough for the keeper to whip off the bails.Laxman was flabbergasted but there was little doubt that it was his own carelessness which had did him in. He shared a 84-run stand for the third wicket with Mukund and added 52 for the next wicket with Kohli.Mukund batted for 176 minutes and hit five fours from 149 balls while Laxman handled 129 balls in 207 minutes, caressing three boundaries.Dhoni, in the company of Raina, then put his head down and began rebuilding the innings with singles and twos.There was never any temptation to throw their bats at a wilting attack, or at least cart the leg-spin of Chanderpaul around the park, as the two showed intent to build a sizeable lead over West Indies.Their stand occupied the most of final session and raised 100 runs in 113 minutes from 182 balls.Raina showed uncharacteristic restraint and reached his half-century from 131 minutes of batting, hitting three fours from 103 balls.There was no further joy for West Indies but for the emergence of Rampaul from the dressing room as Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh (12) helped India reach their first 300-plus score of the series.Earlier in the day, India lost Vijay (1) and Dravid (5) within the first five overs to be 18 for two before normalcy was restored.Vijay was nearly bowled off a low full toss in Edwards’ first over, squeezing the ball between the slip cordon for a four, but his tendency to push at the ball once again proved his undoing.In Edwards’ next over, a delivery took the edge of his bat on way to wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh?s gloves.The Tamil Nadu opener is in the middle of a wretched run of scores, the sequence of his five innings in the series reading 8,0,11,3 and 1.Dravid then fell to Sammy, making the normally passive West Indian captain roar in triumph as he has not done at any stage in this series.Dravid played for an away movement at the delivery which kept coming straight and went between bat and pad to rattle the stumps.- With inputs from PTIlast_img read more
