The project developed a house for a couple, in an urban area of Pichilemu, Chile, with the possibility of being expandable, and with a limited budget.Save this picture!© José Antonio MirandaFor this, it was proposed to work based on a construction system in commercial wood, easy to obtain, and that would facilitate rapid construction. One of the most relevant factors to consider was the labor time and the supply of material to the work. Considering a reduced construction time of the project meant designing based on a structural grid that would consider both commercial dimensions, 3,2m of wood beans, and the structural boards to confine the pieces, and obtain a good structural behavior making the most of the materials without executing so many cuts nor wasted material. Thus, the house was designed based on a 4.88 interior plan square, by 12 meters long, dividing spaces into 3m according to the lengths available to fully occupy the commercial beams and timbers and generate spaces within these dimensions that could be habitable.Save this picture!© José Antonio MirandaSave this picture!Elevations 01Save this picture!© José Antonio MirandaAnother factor that was added to the design was the structure. Based on the same principles mentioned above, a structure was considered that would tie the different parts of the project based on half-timber encounters, and on the axis, so that structural frames were generated and added along to each other, generating a continuous volume that defines the total structure of the house. Also some beams and pillars longer than normal were locally obtained to achieve some larger spans.Save this picture!© José Antonio MirandaSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© José Antonio MirandaThe domestic spaces of the house were thought integrated. The living room and kitchen is defined as the center of the house, and articulates all the circulations. This space is compound by two important pieces of furniture: the staircase and the kitchen table.Save this picture!© José Antonio MirandaThe building placement in the terrain is parallel to the sea, and the slaughterhouse in the other direction, containing the south wind that constantly blows in the place. This is how the house was integrated into its environment generating spaces to the north protected from the south wind and with guaranteed sunlight.Save this picture!© José Antonio MirandaProject gallerySee allShow lessQS Reveals the World’s Top Universities for Architecture in 2021Architecture NewsMoMA Launches Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in AmericaArchitecture News Share Area: 968 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year: ArchDaily Chile Antonio Riquelme, Juan José Mena Photographs: José Antonio Miranda Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Las Gaviotas House / Demo ArquitectosSave this projectSaveLas Gaviotas House / Demo Arquitectos CopyHouses•Pichilemu, Chile Save this picture!© José Antonio Miranda+ 12Curated by Clara Ott Share Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957944/las-gaviotas-house-demo-arquitectos Clipboard Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957944/las-gaviotas-house-demo-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeDemo ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPichilemuOn FacebookChilePublished on March 08, 2021Cite: “Las Gaviotas House / Demo Arquitectos” [Casa Las Gaviotas / Demo Arquitectos] 08 Mar 2021.

He will take on the PR and member services portfolio for the self-regulatory body for face-to-face fundraising (F2F).Ed White, who was operations manager with F2F agency Gift Fundraising, has also been appointed by the PFRA. As the new policy and outreach officer, he will support chief executive Mick Aldridge in negotiations with local authorities and other stakeholders.They join Nick Henry, who started work at the PFRA as the quality and compliance officer last month.

This team will allow us to build effectiveness in our primary role of self-regulation of face-to-face fundraising.”He added that the new team would also help to widen the influence of face-to-face fundraising. “Media relations and the public perception of fundraising are often examined in a street fundraising context”, he said. “When the subject of payment by results or commission comes up, it’s F2F that’s held up as the paradigm case. When the sector comes to tackle attrition, it’s donors recruited through F2F that are focused on first.“It’s my intention that the new PFRA secretariat will shape F2F’s influence on some of these wider issues.”While editor of Professional Fundraising magazine MacQuillin often argued the case for face-to-face fundraising and for a more informed approach to the debate it generates. His research included a day spent as a face-to-face fundraiser in London.White joins PFRA in early May while MacQuillin will start on 22 June.www.pfra.org.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

WW: Why do you think there should be mass releases of prisoners? LS: This is what I was gonna say about these releases . . . So I’m a prime example of how it works. I didn’t have a violent case, but I still did 25 years straight. I was in prison a long time. [Releases] are doable. I know so many people just at the prisons I’ve been at, [who] can be released. Out of almost 6,000 people that could be released, they released, what — 58 people? That’s insane. Right? They need to speed up these [parole] board days. Especially [if] people have gotten COVID, you need to let them go. That’s trauma. That’s PTSD. You let them go. My doctor, Dr. Beatty, he was up on the tier a lot. I asked him [about my retest]. He came back the next day, and he said, “You have COVID.” And I’m like, “Well, I already know that!” You know, because of the symptoms. And this was like some 12 days later that I was told. . . . At this time, you still had staff who weren’t wearing their masks, they didn’t care. But it was mandatory for us. . . . They just didn’t care. So it went, within a matter of eight days, it went from 10 to 588. . . . When they started announcing deaths, people were dying in death row. The global pandemic has disproportionately impacted incarcerated people in the U.S. In California, during the early days of the pandemic, the transfer of prisoners into San Quentin sparked a massive outbreak of COVID that spread to over two-thirds of the prison population there, causing the death of 27 prisoners, including 12 on death row. While incarcerated, Lisa Strawn worked in the prison hospital at San Quentin and contracted COVID there. She was released into the community in July 2020 while still infected. Since then, she has continued her activism for mass releases and for the rights of LGBTQ+ prisoners. This is part 2 of an interview conducted with Strawn on Dec. 30, 2020, by Judy Greenspan, a member of the Prisoners Solidarity Committee of Workers World Party. Read part 1 at www.workers.org/2021/02/54541/.Lisa StrawnWorkers World: Could you talk about contracting COVID and the general pandemic outbreak that you experienced in San Quentin? FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Lisa Strawn: From the beginning, when people were starting to get sick in May, it was really bad. . . . It was the scariest time because you just didn’t know who was going to be next, whose name they were calling out. There were so many alarms, “man down” constantly, all day. The first time I tested, I actually tested with the workers, because I worked in the hospital. I worked up on the floor where a lot of the people from death row were, with medical issues. . . . I tested on June 16, and that test came back negative. Then it was the very next week, June 22, me and my cellie, he was making something to eat. And it was weird. I couldn’t smell anything. And then when I went to eat, I couldn’t taste it. But I didn’t say anything. June 22 is when they started testing North Block. . . . that’s when people really started falling out. It was unbelievable. They started moving people 20, 30, 40 at a time in a day, moving them to other units. Trying to get them out of there. [There were] so many people, they couldn’t move anybody else. There was nowhere to put them. And people were still getting sick. . . . They hadn’t even tested West Block yet. They had so many people they were moving. It was literally 500! The 27th of June was the day that they moved the last group of people out of there because they couldn’t move anybody else. . . .
The Antarctic collembolan, Cryptopygus antarcticus (Willem), can switch its supercooling point (SCP) between ‘winter’ and ‘summer’ modes of cold hardiness over a matter of hours. High resolution temporal scaling of the acquisition and loss of cold hardiness is undertaken by assaying changes in the proportion of animals freezing below −15 °C in response to cooling rate, acclimation temperature, and access to food and moisture. Rapid de-acclimation to the ‘summer’ modal state is readily achieved after 1–6 h in response to warming and access to food; however, rapid acclimation to the ‘winter’ modal state is only evident in response to slow cooling and narrow ranges of temperature (0–5 °C). The rapid loss of cold tolerance at higher temperatures with access to food, in particular, emphasizes this species’ opportunistic responses to resource availability in the short polar summers. Cold hardiness is apparently more readily traded off against nutrient acquisition than vice versa in this maritime Antarctic species.

Casey Moton, DDG 51 class program manager, Program Executive Office (PEO) Ships. “The Navy and industry team worked diligently to ensure the ship operates at peak performance.”DDG 116 is the first Flight IIA Technology Insertion destroyer incorporating the Aegis baseline 9 combat system with an integrated air and missile defense (IAMD) capability, a ballistic missile defense 5.0 capability upgrade (BMD 5.0CU) and naval integrated fire control-counter air (NIFC-CA).Future Thomas Hudner will return to sea to conduct acceptance trials with the Navy’s Board of Inspection and Survey later this spring. During acceptance trials, all systems and gears will undergo inspection and evaluation to ensure quality and operational readiness prior to the Navy accepting delivery.BIW is currently in production on future Arleigh Burke-class destroyers Daniel Inouye (DDG 118), Carl M. Levin (DDG 120) and John Basilone (DDG 122), as well as future Zumwalt-class destroyers Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) and Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002).
