LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. Anders Berensson Architects has designed and partly built an extension to a house in the Stockholm archipelago. To keep a low budget and still being able to elaborate with architecture the office divided the house into two categories.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson Architects“The house box” that is designed like a simple box to be built on site with local materials and building techniques and the “Prefabricated architectural elements” that are designed and prefabricated by the architects and later inserted into the house during the building process.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsSave this picture!Prefabricated Elements DiagramSave this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThe house is designed with a focus on simplicity and function just big enough to host a sleeping area and a small space for working. The office then focused on designing two custom-made windows that could be built and prefabricated by the architects for those two spaces and purposes.Save this picture!SectionOne window to look towards the outside fields while working and one window to look towards the sky when resting or falling asleep. Another goal with the design was to redefine the idea of a window as a flat ready-made glass piece into an architectural element that creates its own space with a clear focus towards the outside.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThis goal led to the design of a sky tower one can crawl into when being in bed totally dedicated to the sky and one corner window with a desk inserted to it that creates a work space on the inside and table for flowers on the outside with a clear focus and direction to the outside field.Save this picture!Cross SectionThe Sky TowerLooking towards a starry sky when falling asleep is a countryside luxury. We wanted to enhance that feeling by making a round tower dedicated to that view where you can lay down in bed and only see and focus on the sky above. At day time the tower takes in a lot of light and is a good place to sit and read. At night time it is the perfect place to study the stars and space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThe outside of the tower is cladded with overlapping boards. There is a local tradition of making jig saw patterns in this type of façade so we decided to design a pattern of big animals, amphibians, birds, flowers and fishes that are living in the archipelago and the Baltic Sea.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThe Desk windowThe Stockholm archipelago is known for its fantastic flora of wild flowers, outside the house lies a meadow with many of the species represented. We designed this window to focus on this local treasury. The spruce board ceiling continues seamlessly above the window and protrudes long enough to cover the sky and direct sun light framing a view towards the meadow. A desk is inserted through the corner window.Save this picture!PlanOn the outside the desk I made out of terracotta red concrete with holes for flowers to grow. The inside of the desk is made of birch plywood with holes cut out for different purposes. The biggest hole is for sitting in the corner looking out. A bench going under the desk in the corner creates divan type of chair where the whole becomes the armrest. The mid-size holes are for ventilation, cables, lamps, and pencils, the tiny holes are pencil sharpeners.Project gallerySee allShow lessHeatherwick Studio Released New Construction Images and Video of the 1000 Trees Proj…Architecture NewsGerman Street Artist 1010 Creates Cave-Like Illusions in Unexpected PlacesArchitecture News Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAnders Berensson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentOtherSmall ScaleExtensionGräsköSwedenPublished on August 10, 2017Cite: “Look Out Lodge / Anders Berensson Architects” 10 Aug 2017.

Two radio journalists held on charges of inciting a riot which they covered

first_img ArgentinaAmericas News November 19, 2020 Find out more ArgentinaAmericas Help by sharing this information On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia July 6, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the arrests of radio journalists Néstor Pasquini and Hugo Francischelli, who were present at a riot on 4 December in Corral de Bustos, a small town in the north-central province of Córdoba, in which a courthouse was destroyed and a judge’s car was torched. Held since 20 December, they are charged with inciting violence, arson and minor injuries and face between three and 15 years in prison.Calling for their immediate release, Reporters Without Borders said there appeared to be a miscarriage of justice. In a case in which the death of a young girl led to serious disturbances, it was regrettable that the authorities preferred to make scapegoats out of journalists who were just covering the events, the press freedom organisation said.The 4 December rioting was prompted by the rape and murder of a small girl, in which the judicial authorities charged the girl’s mother with murder and two men with murder and sexual assault.Prosecutor Carlos Ernesto Viramonte issued warrants for the arrest of 10 people in connection with the riot. The list include Pasquini and Francischelli, who were at the scene covering the disturbances. They were arrested at their homes 16 days after the events. The authorities are still looking for two other people on the list.Pasquini is the owner of local radio FM Show, and the correspondent of radio FM Panorama. Francischelli hosts a programme on radio FM 97.3.“They are making scapegoats out of the journalists, they want to intimidate the media in order to silence them,” Reporters Without Borders was told by Fernando Cabrera, the producer of the programme En Contacto, who is campaigning for Pasquini’s release. “It is no coincidence that the arrests were carried out just a few days before the holiday period,” Cabrera added. “He is still being held incommunicado and will undoubtedly spend New Year’s Eve in prison as well.”To the claim by the judicial authorities that the two journalists incited a violent protest outside the courthouse by nearly 1,000 people, Cabrera responded: “Pasquini was working so it was logical that he would be in the middle of the revolt.”The prosecutor decided to transfer the two journalists and six other detainees to the police station in the nearby town of Marcos Juárez to avoid any possibility of reprisals by local residents.

The Evolution of VDI as a Crucial Technology in Higher Education – What’s next?

first_imgIn Part 1 of this blog series, we talked about desktop virtualization in terms of its ever-changing role in solving new problems for Higher Education: lab systems management, student productivity and flexibility, a bridge between wealthier and poorer students, lab consolidation, and finally looking forward to “21st Century Collaboration Spaces.” Now, let’s discuss the future – what new challenges in Higher Education can VDI as a technology solve? Here are a few ideas I think are interesting.Hyper-converged infrastructure VDI appliances (HCIA) are becoming increasingly attractive for campuses that want to set up distributed compute environments. For example, to give the Law School a separate IT environment from the Business School, etc. A few years ago, the cost per seat of VDI made smaller deployments too expensive, and we saw a lot of schools try – unsuccessfully in most cases – to corral their departments into a centralized solution.Today, the “building block” approach of HCIA opens up the technology to departments that want to virtualize a few labs, then pay as they grow. Plus, the ease of the software GUI’s that run from a single management console on HCIA’s means schools no longer require an IT professional with a “PhD in VDI.”Because an HCIA allows nearly frictionless scaling without the budgetary impact of previous hardware upgrades or expansions typically required for a VDI project, schools can use this technology for distance learning programs. Schools are opening up new avenues of learning (and sometimes new revenue streams), via distance education programs and Massive Online Open Courses (MOOC’s).Hosted by leading institutions such as Stanford, MIT, Yale, Harvard, and at least 563 other universities, the number of massive open online courses has exploded in recent years.  Offering up software for such programs via desktop virtualization environments allows schools to avoid the hassle of shipping and tracking software licenses, and allows students to leverage their own hardware.However, the number of students enrolled in these courses can swing up and down much more rapidly than in a traditional on-campus course. If the number of students signed up online is much greater than anticipated, hyper-converged infrastructure appliances allow for flexible scaling and ease of virtual desktop deployment. This allows schools to offer more distance learning to more students at a lower cost.Looking ahead, I’ve seen a few forward-leaning IT administrators try to provision all of their desktops from the public cloud, saying, “We don’t want to be in the desktop management business. We want to be in the education business.” Unfortunately, most of these valiant efforts have been limited by a handful of issues that I believe will be solved in the next five years.The first is how you protect critical data, like HIPAA data leveraged by a medical school, in a public cloud environment. While there are work-arounds to allow you to do this today, they are not elegant solutions. I suspect a much better answer is going to be the developing technology set around hybrid cloud architectures where sensitive data is stored and protected locally.The second issue is around software application licensing. Five years ago, most ISV’s did not have concurrent licensing, required by most Higher Ed institutions for virtualizing lab computers. This meant that there was a huge software licensing “tax” on going virtual, and my team was involved in an Educause working group related to this issue. Today this issue is already mostly resolved, but there are a few notable stragglers among software developers that are preventing deployments of the full complement of academic software required by students. I suspect this problem will resolve quickly.The third issue is that, because campuses do distributed IT purchasing, cloud solutions that reward scale can be cost prohibitive. Even in schools where the CIO has issued a centralized mandate around cloud adoption, IT professionals have lacked a charge-back system that would effectively administer a fair distribution of costs across multiple departments. Once a solid solution for multi-tenant cloud / departmental charge-back takes hold, this will drive more large campuses to serve up their desktops out of the cloud.And, once Higher Ed does wholeheartedly embrace the cloud for more than just storage or Office 365? I see an interesting opportunity for universities to take advantage of the ability to “burst” up and down rapidly. Higher Ed, in particular, has very seasonal needs. What if a school could provision for a baseline level of activity, then burst-up each semester during midterms and finals?However these trends evolve, it is clear that Higher Education has already derived great benefit from desktop virtualization technologies, with huge impacts to student work-study habits, the use and purpose of computer labs, physical plant allocation, and IT support workloads. I am excited to look back in five more years and see what else in Higher Education has changed as a result of this ongoing transformation in desktop computing.last_img read more

Who won the Heisman Trophy in 2019? Full voting results, stats, list of award winners

first_imgThe 2019 Heisman Trophy presentation was an exclusive, star-studded affair in New York.All the players in attendance at Saturday’s presentation will play in the 2019 College Football Playoff: LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields and Ohio State defensive end Chase Young. Each had transcendent seasons at their respective positions, enough so to earn finalist status for the most famous individual award in sports. MORE: 10 biggest Heisman misses of all timeBurrow completed 342 of 439 passes (77.9 percent) for 4,715 yards and 48 touchdowns to six interceptions, and he added 289 yards and three scores on the ground. Hurts completed 222 of 309 passes (71.8 percent) for 3,634 yards and 32 touchdowns to eight interceptions, to go with 1,255 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns. Fields completed 208 of 308 passes (67.5 percent) for 2,953 yards and 40 touchdowns to just one interception, adding 471 yards and 10 scores on the ground. Young compiled 44 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and a nation-leading 16.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles despite being suspended two games.That said, only one was good enough to bring home the 2019 Heisman Trophy:Who won the Heisman Trophy in 2019?LSU quarterback Joe Burrow won the 2019 Heisman Trophy, becoming only the second LSU player ever to win the prestigious award (after halfback Billy Cannon in 1959).Burrow was the odds-on favorite throughout most of the second half of the season, a status he helped cement with outstanding performances against Alabama and Georgia. He completed 59 of 77 passes for 772 yards and seven touchdowns combined against the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs.He became the first SEC player to throw for at least 40 touchdowns and 4,000 yards in a season; he also eclipsed the single-season passing yards mark and tied the single-season touchdown record at 44 (not including the SEC championship game). During his acceptance speech, Burrow fought back tears as he thanked LSU coach Ed Orgeron, who named the Ohio State graduate transfer the Tigers’ starter in 2018:”I sure hope they give him a lifetime contract. He deserves it.”Joe Burrow’s emotional message to Coach O during his Heisman acceptance speech #LSU pic.twitter.com/bGZsgw8o8T— Kevin Boilard (@247KevinBoilard) December 15, 2019MORE: 13 best players to never win HeismanHeisman voting results 2019FinishPlayerPos.SchoolTotal points1st2nd3rd1.Joe BurrowQBLSU2,6088414132.Jalen HurtsQBOklahoma762122312643.Chase YoungDEOhio State74762711874.Justin FieldsQBOhio State64320205173Heisman Trophy voting consists of 870 media votes, 57 prior Heisman votes and one vote from the fans.College football award winners 2019Heisman Trophy (outstanding player of the year): Joe Burrow, QB, LSUMaxwell Award (player of the year): Joe Burrow, QB, LSUDavey O’Brien Award (best QB): Joe Burrow, LSUDoak Walker Award (best RB): Jonathan Taylor, WisconsinFred Biletnikoff Award (best WR): Ja’Marr Chase, LSUJohn Mackey Award (best TE): Harrison Bryant, FAUChuck Bednarik Award (best defensive player): Chase Young, Ohio StateButkus Award (best linebacker): Isaiah Simmons, ClemsonJim Thorpe Award (best defensive back): Grant Delpit, LSURimington Trophy (best center): Tyler Biadasz, WisconsinOutland Trophy (best interior offensive lineman): Penei Sewell, OregonLou Groza Award (best kicker): Rodrigo Blankenship, GeorgiaRay Guy Award (best punter): Max Duffy, Kentuckylast_img read more
