The project was the complete revival of small home on death’s door. Other than applying the standard functional and aesthetic requirements of a small family within their financial considerations, urgent architectural CPR was required. Despite the misgivings of others, the clients’ and project team recognised an opportunity to create a unique home, embracing the history of the building and meeting the obvious challenges with excitement.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe council Heritage Overlay meant that the original, severely dilapidated Singapore Cottage prefab, built in the 1850s could not be “bowled over” (the first thought of every person who ventured into the house); instead it was lovingly retained. Part of the enjoyment of the process for everyone involved was learning about its past life, something which I often ignored, not intentionally, by concentrating on the “new part” of a project where an old building is refurbished and extended. The framing was marked with Roman Numerals to enable it be put together after it being shipped and delivered on site and to be taken down and relocated if required. There were layers of building linings both inside and out such as wallpaper from the 1870s and roof shingles under the corrugated iron sheeting as they were peeled away There were many theories on what the building was actually used as many years ago, a general store, a halfway house for farmers and travellers or potentially a brothel due to this profession’s history in the suburb its located in.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe first challenge was  to overcome the limited site size – 238m2 – in order to fit the brief, which called for an open plan living, dining, kitchen, rumpus room, bathroom, walk in pantry, walk in laundry, master bedroom, ensuite, walk in robe, 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and an outdoor area. This was accomplished by building around “the back yard” in a “U” shape facing north. Materials and finishes were selected to be hard-wearing and maintenance-free, to endure the enthusiastic creativity of young children, while remaining sympathetic to adult sensibilities. The group objective was to create a highly contemporary space with enduring and classic features. Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientA neglected and universally overlooked property has been transformed into a clever, modern home. The spaces combine both classic and modern materials and finishes – such as clean white cork flooring, white acrylic bench tops and white fittings – with less ubiquitous, yet equally appealing ones, like the striking orange, studded rubber flooring, original 1870s layered wallpaper , and rustic recycled messmate timber boards. Rather than create dissonance, the contrasts work extremely well together, forming a minimalistic and simple aesthetic with a controlled contrast of colour and texture.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe process delivered an outcome that, after comparing the original decaying building with the completed project, is both impressive and surprising; It is clean yet interesting, preserves its colourful antiquity whilst being progressive, and functions incredibly well, considering the site’s spatial constraints. The home pushes boundaries with purpose; it is a unique home yet is very easy to embrace and is in no danger of dating.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe considerable discussions during the design and documentation process, which included the implementation of specific sustainable choices, ultimately came down to prioritising items based on cost and value for money, as is very often the case with smaller projects. Save this picture!SectionConsiderations included long-lasting and durable sustainable materials. Such as cork and rubber flooring and recycled timber cladding, the use of hydronic heating and the omission of air conditioning. The planning and structural co-ordination endeavoured to minimise the use of steel, favouring timber framing through sensible spans and cantilevers. But ultimately what stood out in terms of sustainability, was the common sense application of standard, good thermally passive design techniques.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientThe project replaces a sad, disintegrating building with a house that the clients love coming home to. The simple aesthetic of the façade concealing something exciting behind, generates a curiosity in passers-by, who are often found marvelling at its blend of history and restoration with interest. It has given another 100+ years to a house that has already done 165.Save this picture!© Andrew Wuttke & Project ClientProject gallerySee allShow lessIs Housing at the Root of Inequality?Architecture NewsOpposition Mounts Against David Chipperfield’s Nobel Center in StockholmArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/614671/st-kilda-house-jost-architects Clipboard St Kilda House / Jost Architects CopyAbout this officeJost ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSaint KildaHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAustraliaPublished on April 01, 2015Cite: “St Kilda House / Jost Architects” 01 Apr 2015.

TV presenter suspended after microblog warning about tainted gelatine

Posted On Jun 12 2021 by

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific ChinaAsia – Pacific When another Internet user requested more information, Zhao replied: “It is like one day you throw away your leather shoes and then they are in your stomach.”After Zhao ceased to be seen hosting CCTV’s evening news programme from 10 April onwards, speculation began to circulate that he had been temporarily suspended for violating the state TV broadcaster’s internal regulations.On 22 April, Zhao posted an entry on Weibo that was a verse from the poet Wang Changling 王昌龄 . It indicated that he had no regrets: “If friends and relatives in Luoyang enquire after my feelings, I would say my heart is like a piece of pure ice in a jade pot.” (“洛阳亲友如相问,一片冰心在玉壶。”)Zhao’s 9 April post referred to the discovery that toxic industrial gelatine has been used in a wide range of foodstuffs. Investigators have arrested a total of 53 people and closed ten factories that were allegedly using toxic products such as old leather to make gelatine for food products.Contradictory statements by CCTV have fuelled concerns about Zhao’s situation after he posted the original warning. Initially the station said he was on a “normal” 10-day vacation. Other statements indicated that he had been punished but not dismissed.On 15 April, the CCTV programme “Weekly Quality Reports” (每周质量报告) contained a report entitled “The secret in the capsules” (胶囊里的秘密) that said industrial gelatine made in part from pieces of old shoes had been used to manufacture the capsules for many common drugs as well as emulsifier used in a wide range of foodstuffs.There have been several major outcries about tainted food products in recent years. Although the Internet and social networks have provided netizens and journalists with new ways of circulating information and expressing their concerns, government censorship continues to be felt whenever such a scandal emerges.In what was a very unusual occurrence in China, a journalist who had been investigating tainted cooking oil was murdered by unidentified individuals in September 2011. Those responsible were never arrested. March 12, 2021 Find out more News News Follow the news on China RSF_en Read in Chinese / 看中文Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the fate of Zhao Pu 赵普, an evening news presenter on state-owned CCTV, who has not been seen on screen since 9 April, after posting a warning message on his Weibo microblog about the dangers of the gelatine being added to certain kinds of yoghurt and other food products.“CCTV’s management must quickly explain why Zhao Pu was suspended and what his current status is,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If he violated an internal regulation, CCTV should clearly say so, in which case, the legitimacy of the station’s internal regulations must be questioned. Zhao just warned his compatriots about a proven public health issue, in connection with which many arrests have already been made.“The censorship of Zhao’s message on the Internet and CCTV’s initial silence followed by incoherent statements just reinforce the hypothesis that Zhao has been sidelined at the behest of the government, which – as in earlier food scandals – presumably wanted to suppress any comments on a subject it regarded as very sensitive.”Zhao, 40, posted the following message on his microblog on 9 April. It was forwarded 130,000 times before it was removed later the same day:“Text message from an investigative reporter: Do not eat yoghurt (the thick kind) or jelly, especially children. Their contents are truly frightening. I won’t speak about it in detail.” (“转发来自调查记者短信:不要吃老酸奶(固体形态)和果冻,尤其是孩子,内幕很可怕,不细说。”) June 2, 2021 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more to go further Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes April 25, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 TV presenter suspended after microblog warning about tainted gelatine Help by sharing this information News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News Organisation China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Receive email alertslast_img read more

A new method to determine the reproductive condition in female tubeworms tested in Seepiophila jonesi (Polychaeta: Siboglinidae: Vestimentifera)

Posted On May 9 2021 by

first_imgVestimentiferan tubeworms are significant members of deep-sea chemosynthetically-driven communities, including hydrothermal vents and cold seeps. The reproductive condition in this taxon is rarely studied because of sampling constraints inherent to these environments, and the lack of a simple methodology to quantify gonad development in vestimentiferans. We demonstrate that the amount of gonad found in the first 10 mm of trunk can be used as representative of the reproductive condition of the individual, and we establish a linear relationship between the amount of gonad and the proportion of wax ester in the trunk of female vestimentiferans. This relationship represents a new method for the determination of the reproductive condition in this group.last_img

Press release: Border Force helps holiday makers avoid summer nightmare

Posted On Apr 20 2021 by

first_imgAnyone who is overseas and has their passport taken should first report it to the police. British nationals should then contact the local British Consulate for help and advice to get a replacement. In Spain the contact details are 0034 933 666 200 or [email protected] Border Force operation is supported by modern slavery charity Unseen, who operate the Modern Slavery Helpline. Anyone feeling vulnerable about their work or finances can contact the Modern Slavery Helpline, in confidence, on 08000 121 700.The operation is just one part of the work Border Force carries out to address modern slavery and trafficking. All front-line Border Force officers are trained to identify signs of modern slavery and make the necessary referrals. Travelling abroad for a summer in the sun can seem like a dream come true, but it can quickly turn into a nightmare for young people subject to exploitation by unscrupulous employers. It’s important to raise awareness of these risks and I hope it will ensure a safe and happy trip for young British holiday makers. insist on a contract setting out terms and conditions. Under Spanish law if you are working without a contract, you are working illegally keep your passport. Don’t accept offers from others to keep it safe ask to see accommodation before accepting it as part of a job package Young British nationals travelling to Majorca will receive tips on how to avoid exploitation as part of an annual Border Force operation designed to safeguard holiday makers.Border Force officers will be distributing leaflets and speaking to passengers at ports across the UK about the risks involved in unofficial public relations (PR) work – those employed to attract people into bars and clubs in the Spanish tourist hotspot.Research commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office found that 80% of British people imprisoned in Majorca in 2018 were former PR reps.Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said: Key advice to young people considering a PR role is to: The operation will run at ports across the UK from 16-30 June. Activity has already concluded at Scottish ports to coincide with different school term dates.The FCO-commissioned research found that unofficial PR workers are often employed without official contracts, forced to work long hours for low wages, and not provided with suitable accommodation.This can lead to them falling into debt and being drawn into illegal activities, such as selling drugs.Lloyd Milen, Consul General Barcelona and Balearic Islands, said: This is the second year of this operation. Last year, the campaign helped to reduce the number of illegal PR workers becoming consular cases. Majorca continues to be a hugely popular destination for young people, not least because of its fabulous beaches and well-known nightlife. But we also want them to be aware of the risks of working illegally and to know what to do if they have problems.last_img read more
