The aim of the Plane House is to merge internal and external space, maximising the benefits of both and minimising the impact on the surrounding landscape.Save this picture!© Yiorgos KordakisTo avoid block volumes that split and dominate space, horizontal planes are inserted into the slope, immediately providing levels for sunbathing, sleeping and eating, as well as vast, open area of shade. They cool and shade the space beneath whilst allowing the flow of sunlight and maintaining the stunning 270 degree view over the coastline. Space between the planes is defined by various flexible panels and glazed screens. Designated cooking, eating and relaxation zones are offset from each other to provide cosiness without sacrificing openness.Save this picture!© Yiorgos KordakisThe pool is strategically placed to enjoy the view but also to create a cooling breeze over the terrace and into the house as the north wind flows uphill and over its surface. Photovoltaic panels power the pool mechanics and grey-water is recycled and used for irrigation, toilet flushing and fire extinguishing. The landscape is respected and continues over the green roof plane, creeps up along the site boundaries and penetrates vertically through the roof as existing trees stand in the space, undisturbed.Save this picture!© Yiorgos KordakisThe powerful identity of the concrete planes creates a strong narrative on approaching the house from the coastal road that winds below. From a distance the planes are distinctively separated but as you draw nearer and approach the house from the side, the perspective alters closing the gap between them. On arrival and on entering the space they part once more, opening to reveal the breathtaking view and let the fresh air flow through.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Gherkin: How London’s Famous Tower Leveraged Risk and Became an IconArticlesA Walking City for the 21st CenturyArchitecture News Share Houses Greece Projects CopyHouses•Skiathos Island, Greece Plane House / K-StudioSave this projectSavePlane House / K-Studiolast_img read more

Jim Harbaugh Shares What He Likes About Donald Trump

first_imgJim Harbaugh looks content from the sidelines.MADISON, WI – NOVEMBER 18: Head coach Jim Harbaugh of the Michigan Wolverines watches action during a game against the Wisconsin Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium on November 18, 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin. (Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images)Jim Harbaugh isn’t on a campaign trail, but the Michigan head coach manages to put himself in the news almost every day, not unlike a certain Republican presidential candidate. After Harbaugh blasted the NCAA, SEC, ACC, and others over the recent vote to ban satellite camps, SEC Network host Paul Finebaum compared him to Donald Trump, and he didn’t mean it in a flattering way. We don’t know Harbaugh’s political leanings, but he is spinning the comparison into a compliment.Harbaugh on being called Trump of college football: “The thing I like about Donald Trump is he’s not afraid to fight the establishment.”— Mark Snyder (@Mark__Snyder) April 14, 2016You can definitely draw that line from Trump to Harbaugh. We doubt you’d see Trump dancing on stage with Migos, though like Harbaugh and recruits, he may if he thought it’d give him a leg up with voters.last_img read more

Parents Encouraged to Take Advantage of Options in Purchasing Textbooks

first_img Speaking with JIS News, Communications Specialist at the CAC, Dorothy Campbell, outlines some of the options that parents can explore to ensure that their children are equipped with the necessary books for the new school year. The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) is encouraging parents to take advantage of the varied options to minimise expenses for the purchase of textbooks for the 2018/19 academic year. The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) is encouraging parents to take advantage of the varied options to minimise expenses for the purchase of textbooks for the 2018/19 academic year.Speaking with JIS News, Communications Specialist at the CAC, Dorothy Campbell, outlines some of the options that parents can explore to ensure that their children are equipped with the necessary books for the new school year.Among the options are school-book rental schemes and using social media platforms to facilitate book exchanges or buying books advertised on these platforms at a discounted rate.Another option, she recommends, is the purchase of books from independent distributors who have established relationships with schools to supply textbooks at a reasonable cost.Ms. Campbell is advising parents to check that these online books have the current information that is being used by the teacher.“The CAC is all about ensuring that parents are empowered with whatever information or tools are available, so the online access is very important. However, I would caution that students who may choose to use online versions of a textbook to ensure that it is the correct edition, because sometimes there are slight revisions or very significant revisions that will entail an entire chapter being inserted, or the text may be time-sensitive,” she tells JIS News.Ms. Campbell also recommends that parents check whether the books are under revision. This can be done by comparing the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) with that of the most recent edition.The ISBN is a 10- or 13-digit number that identifies a specific registered book, an edition of a book, or a book-like product (such as an audio book).“Check to make sure that they match, because a book may carry the same writer, same title – everything – but that critical line …which says revised edition (with the year) is vital, as it may impact critical material,” she explains.Ms. Campbell notes that an important part of planning are the orientation exercises hosted by schools, and urges parents to attend these sessions as they can give parents valuable information to assist in managing back-to-school expenses.“Ensure that you participate in the orientation sessions and that you take notes. If the opportunity arises, ensure that you meet your child’s homeroom teacher, and network with other school officials and parents to find out what are the critical items that you need to get,” she says.Students are also encouraged to take note of any information from the schools during the first week about books that may no longer be relevant for the course or will not be used in the first term.“The teacher will be able to tell them if they need ‘literature book A’ for the first term, but don’t need the other two until later down in the year, so you only need to purchase one instead of three at once. You can delay buying those until you are in a position to do so. It is important that you talk to your child. We want parents to exhaust these opportunities before they go off and purchase new books in stores,” Ms. Campbell says.She also advises parents to check with community civic groups, including churches and parent-teacher associations (PTAs), for any opportunity to access used books at special prices.Additionally, Ms. Campbell is also encouraging parents to use the Price Inquiry Tool Portal on the CAC’s website in their planning and management of purchases.“What we are asking parents to do is, if they have access to the Internet, they can visit our website at www.cac.gov.jm and use the price enquiry tool to select the store from one of the 90 outlets.They will see the prices, and they can plan for the amount of money they have to spend, what they can purchase now, versus what they can purchase in a couple of weeks,” she says.Parents can also use the CAC Annual Textbook Survey on the website as a shopping guide.This year’s survey indicates that there is an overall two per cent increase in the average price islandwide for all texts out of 90 retailers surveyed.Of the 90 bookstores visited between July 23 and 27, some 26 are located in the Greater Kingston Metropolitan Area (Kingston, St. Andrew, Portmore and Spanish Town) and 64 from other urban and rural towns of all the parishes, including St. Catherine.A total of 133 popular textbooks were surveyed, consisting of 90 secondary-level, 30 primary-level and 13 infant-level textbooks covering 17 subject areas.The results of the survey revealed the following: a five per cent increase in prices for infant-school texts, with an average cost of $1,224.95 in 62 per cent of the stores; a four per cent price increase for primary-school texts, with an average cost of $1,566.73 in 64 per cent of stores; a one per cent decrease in grades seven to nine texts, with an average cost of $1,795.85 in 39 per cent of stores; and a one per cent decrease in CSEC/CAPE texts, with an average cost of $3,578.36 in 23 per cent of stores surveyed. Story Highlights Among the options are school-book rental schemes and using social media platforms to facilitate book exchanges or buying books advertised on these platforms at a discounted rate.last_img read more

BC First Nation angered by federal ministers response to downed tug

first_imgThe Canadian PressBELLA BELLA, B.C. — Members of a Heiltsuk Nation on British Columbia’s central coast say they’re angered and dismayed by a federal minister’s response to a fuel spill in the area.Fisheries and Oceans minister Dominic LeBlanc has issued a statement saying crews have finished pumping oil from a sunken tug boat near Bella Bella, B.C., and are now turning their attention to removing the Nathan E. Stewart from the waters.The statement says environmental monitoring and shoreline cleanup are also underway.But Marilyn Slett, chief of the Heiltsuk Nation, said in a release that there is an extensive amount of work to be done, and it’s still unclear what environmental impact the fuel spill has had on the area.Slett says the minister needs to come to Bella Bella to see the situation first hand.The tug had more than 200,000 litres of diesel on board when it ran aground and sank on Oct. 13, and representatives say about 110,000 litres of an oil-water mixture have been recovered.last_img read more

US proposes higher tax on 200 billion in Chinese imports

first_imgWASHINGTON – The Trump administration is proposing raising planned taxes on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports to 25 per cent from 10 per cent, turning up the pressure on Beijing in a trade war between the world’s two biggest economies.The United States has already imposed 25 per cent tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese imports and is readying 25 per cent tariffs on another $16 billion worth to punish China for allegedly using predatory tactics to obtain U.S. technology. The Chinese have retaliated in kind.Last month, the U.S. proposed 10 per cent tariffs on another $200 billion in Chinese products — from parachutes to sardines — in response to China’s retaliation. But President Donald Trump now wants U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to consider more than doubling those tariffs to 25 per cent. The government will seek public comment on the higher tariffs. A hearing on the levies is scheduled for Aug. 20-23.“The Trump Administration continues to urge China to stop its unfair practices, open its market and engage in true market competition,” Lighthizer said Wednesday, adding that, “Regrettably, instead of changing its harmful behaviour, China has illegally retaliated against U.S. workers, farmers, ranchers and businesses.”Reacting to media reports that the higher tariffs were coming, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang warned that Beijing will “definitely fight back” to defend its “lawful rights and interests.” He gave no details of possible retaliatory measures.Trump has threatened to escalate the conflict even more by taxing virtually all of the $500 billion worth of goods China ships annually to the United States.“The president is going to continue to hold China responsible for their unfair trade practices,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “This has gone on for long enough and he’s going to do something about it.”But Trump’s tariffs have drawn criticism at home in the United States for driving up costs for consumers and companies that rely on Chinese imports.“We said before that this round of tariffs amounted to doubling down on the recklessness of imposing trade policy that will hurt U.S. families and workers more than they will hurt China,” said Matthew Shay, president of the National Retail Federation. “Increasing the size of the tariffs is merely increasing the harm that will be done. “Mickey Kantor, who was U.S. trade representative under President Bill Clinton, warned that a trade war with China will take a toll on a U.S. healthy economy that from April through June registered the fastest growth since 2014.“Our economy is in terrific shape,” said Kantor, now a partner at the Mayer Brown law firm. “Why in the world would you do this? It makes no sense. We don’t need it. It will cost us jobs and investment. It will slow the economy.”___Associated Press Writer Ken Thomas contributed to this report..last_img read more

Beirut summit highlights divisions turmoil in Lebanon

first_imgBEIRUT — An Arab economic summit in Lebanon has been marred by controversy days before delegates arrive for the gathering this weekend.Should regional outcast Syria be invited, as demanded by Lebanon’s powerful Hezbollah militia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad?

But Lebanon’s powerful parliament speaker, Nabih Berri, disagrees, saying a country paralyzed by its own divisions cannot successfully host a meeting of Arab nations.The turmoil is nothing new to Lebanon, a country fragmented along political fault lines.Zeina Karam And Bassem Mroue, The Associated Presslast_img read more
