The 2,750 sq ft Lazy Bear Poolhouse by BarlisWedlick is located on a 115-acre estate in the Catskill Mountains. A modern twist on traditional rustic architecture, the pool house – which houses a 54-foot-long pool – is an extension of the property’s main house accessible by a passageway constructed partially underground.Save this picture!© Reto GuntliBuilt with Passive House principles, the larger-than-life pool house features 18-foot-tall triple-glazed windows constructed along the pool’s west side to maximize sunlight. The underground passageway also allows an airtight entry, which creates an 88-degree indoor temperature all year round.Save this picture!© Reto GuntliSave this picture!© Reto GuntliVentilation from the ceiling prevents the glass from fogging up from the warm climate. BarlisWedlick intentionally designed the pool house in a different architectural style than the main house, noting that because of its unique size, a matching style would have compromised its proportions.Save this picture!© Reto GuntliSave this picture!© Reto GuntliSave this picture!© Reto GuntliOver time, the agricultural-style structure with a standing-seam gabled roof and two-toned board-and-batten siding will appear to look ‘older’ than the main house. Four tree-trunk columns run the length of the pool anchoring the structure’s nature-centric look, while white birch logs cover the walls. A leaf-patterned Paul Frankl upholstered sofa and forest-inspired wallpaper further add to the building’s feel of tropical escapism.Save this picture!© Reto GuntliProject gallerySee allShow lessStone Lodges Private Residences / EarthitectsSelected ProjectsChip&Chop House / David Ruiz MolinaSelected Projects Share Peterson Engineering Group Projects Photographs CopyAbout this officeBarlisWedlickOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookOld ChathamUnited StatesPublished on May 05, 2021Cite: “Lazy Bear Pool House / BarlisWedlick” 05 May 2021.

Lima Jr. to see that police and the army recaptured suspect Guillermo Wapille, a former policeman, who escaped from the police camp at Pagadian (Mindanao island) on 1 February and to investigate how he escaped. Since then, two witnesses of the murder, who gave evidence against him, and the journalist’s family have received death threats.It also repeated its call for the arrest of the reported brains behind the killing, former local police chief Asuri Hawani. Local journalists’ organisations have denounced the failure of the authorities to act.Wapille was held at Camp Abelon, in Pagadian, under the responsibility of the local police chief, Pedrito Reyes. Police said he escaped on 1 February and Damalerio’s associates said he was probably still in the area.Since then, two people who gave evidence against him have received death threats, including Edgar Amoro, who was with Damalerio in a car when he was shot. His widow Gemma, who has been in hiding for several months, has also been threatened and fears reprisals against the family. She also fears Wapille will not be recaptured before the expiry on 10 February of the arrest warrant issued on 30 January by Pagadian regional court judge Franklyn Villegas.

African scientists make headway in grasping persistent TB bacteria

first_imgWith more than one million people being diagnosed with drug-resistant tuberculosis each year, it has become difficult to fight the disease. But Africa’s scientists are making progress by targeting bacteria using techniques that have never been applied to TB research. Researchers from Stellenbosch University are getting closer to understanding why some bacteria are drug-resistant. (Image: The Conversation)Jomien Mouton and Samantha Sampson• Rural Southern African doctors go the extra mile• HIV/Aids in South Africa• Local researchers honoured at their ‘Oscars’• Health hero on a mission to fight TB• Global Aids conference in South Africa The arrival of drug-resistant tuberculosis has significantly complicated global efforts to decrease the scourge of the disease.Each year more than nine million people are infected with TB and another 1.5 million die. But the latest figures show that at least 20% of people diagnosed with the disease have “multiple-drug-resistant” TB. And about 9.7% of these also have “extensively-drug-resistant TB”.TB is caused by bacteria that attack the lungs. Most TB treatments target bacteria that actively grow in the body. But a very important subset of bacteria is able to survive treatment. These are known as persistent bacteria.Though these persistent bacteria only represent a very small proportion of the bacteria that causes TB, failing to get rid of them can have devastating consequences. They are responsible for lengthy drug treatment, and could contribute to drug resistance. They therefore should also be the target of TB therapies.The challenge with these persistent bacteria is that they are very difficult to isolate. This makes it difficult to study them and therefore difficult to develop drugs to kill them.As a team of scientists at Stellenbosch University in South Africa, together with colleagues at Imperial College London, we found a new way to identify, isolate and target persistent bacteria. Our technique, which has never before been applied in TB research, will help scientists understand why some bacteria respond to treatment and others become resistant.How this bacteria worksPersistent bacteria plays a particularly important role in latent TB – when bacteria that can cause TB hibernate in the body. Someone with latent TB will not have any clinical symptoms and will therefore not know that he or she has the disease. Latent TB can survive in the body for decades and only flare up when someone’s immune system is compromised.Latent TB can therefore progress to full-blown disease in people who have compromised immune systems. These are often people who have HIV/AIDS, suffer from malnutrition, are ageing or have a substance-abuse problem. About one-third of the world’s population carries latent TB.Conventional thinking has held that persistent bacteria are also present in people who have latent TB. These bacteria are thought to either stop growing or are slowly growing, although they still survive in the body.But emerging research has started to question this assumption on two fronts:     Some research shows that proportions of the bacteria continue to grow while others die.     Other research argues that the bacteria do not grow.Understanding the bacteria present in latent TB is important to choose the best TB treatments. This is especially important because of the difficulties associated with treating persistent bacteria that can survive treatment.For this reason our research is focused on finding ways to study and target persistent bacteria. We used specific bacteria-associated labels and sophisticated laser-based methods to identify and isolate these bacteria.A new method to study persistent bacteriaThe technique, known as fluorescence dilution, uses two fluorescent proteins to label the bacteria. One protein tracks live bacteria and the other measures its growth. It is applied to identify and isolate individual bacteria to study it.The technique can best be described as using “micro-tweezers” to physically pick out the slow-growing bacteria from the rest. This enables us to find the hard-to-identify persistent bacteria.We were able to do this by applying the same approach that’s been used to isolate the bacteria that causes food poisoning, Salmonella. This involves subjecting the bacteria to conditions that come closest to those found in the body as opposed to conditions in the laboratory.Using this technique, we found that when bacteria entered a specific type of white blood cell, a population of non- or slowly-growing persistent bacteria appeared. White blood cells play a critical role in defending the body against invading bacteria. In the laboratory we use them to mimic the environment found in the body.This finding is important because it shows that the numbers of persistent bacteria increase by being inside white blood cells. This means that the host’s own defences can help the bacteria to survive TB treatment.Hope for the futureThese are only the first steps, but this technique offers unique opportunities to deepen scientists’ understanding of why and how the body’s response to TB treatment results in drug resistance.We can now, for example, begin to study what drives bacteria into a latent state. Once we understand this better it will be possible to begin designing drugs that better manage latent TB. Importantly, this could help decrease the amount of time it takes to treat TB as well as minimise drug resistance.Jomien Mouton is a postdoctoral research fellow in the MRC Centre for Tuberculosis Research, Stellenbosch University and Samantha Sampson is associate professor of SARChI Research Chair in Mycobactomics at Stellenbosch University. This article was originally published in The Conversation.

HBO’s Game of Thrones: Your One-Stop Film School

first_imgOne of the best ways to learn anything is to study the masters. Go behind the scenes of Game of Thrones for insight into every aspect of filmmaking.All images via HBO.The current king of fantasy, HBO’s Game of Thrones, has been releasing weekly making-of videos for some of the biggest scenes of this season. The result is one of best resources for film students looking to understand how a film gets made — from concept to the screen.This isn’t new for HBO’s signature show. They have been publishing commentary and behind-the-scenes videos from the get-go, but since the Battle of The Bastards, most episodes have been offering insight into how these scenes actually get made. If you’re new to filmmaking (or even if you’re a seasoned veteran), these BTS videos are invaluable tools for sharpening your craft.Here are some of the best from Season 7. Be warned, spoilers lie ahead.Episode 5: East Watch – Loot Train AttackWho should watch: directors and production designers.Directing a battle is an audacious task. As director Matt Shakman says, “When you have a big battle sequence, especially one where you have multiple points of view, you have to figure out how you balance those and what is the chief point of view that you want to lean on . . . and I chose Jamie.” Without a central point of view, the audience becomes entangled in a cinematic fury of blood and knives with no real vantage.Since the scene is a fiery inferno, this video offers several highlights regarding how the crew made the location look like it had been scorched by a dragon.Episode 2: Stormborn — Naval BattleWho should watch: SFX & VFX crew.In Episode 2, we see Euron Greyjoy attack the Greyjoy’s loyal to Yara and the army of Dawn. This scene is set on a ship, at sea, at night, lit by fire. Quite the task. As show runner David Benioff says, “Fire is one of the hardest things for VFX to replicate, so they’d always rather have real fire on set. Even now with all the advances in VFX technology real fire just looks better.”If you’re looking to make progress in VFX or SFX, the behind the scenes here is a great demonstration of the collaboration between the two departments.While not directly pulled from the episodes, during the buildup to season 7, HBO released three short videos about different creative areas of the show: the music, the costumes, and the special effects.While not as extensive as the featured videos, the three videos explore elements of filmmaking that often get overlooked by cinematography and VFX tasters.A Story in ScoreA Story in Special EffectsA Story in ClothYou can find more videos like this on the Game of Thrones YouTube channel. There are definitely some more gems in there.Looking for more video tutorials? We got one for just about everything in our collection.last_img read more

Manchester United’s next manager must get more from Romelu Lukaku

first_imgBelgium Topics Share on WhatsApp Guardian Sport Network Facebook Infographic:WhoScored Infographic:WhoScored Infographic:WhoScored Share via Email Twitter David Squires on … José Mourinho’s United exit and Southampton’s spirit It’s clear that a number of Manchester United’s big names have been in need of a fresh start for some time now, and their big No 9 is certainly one of them. The club have confirmed that a caretaker will take the reins until the end of the season, with that man tasked with sparking new life into a group of players in desperate need of resuscitation. It’s up to Lukaku and his teammates to prove that Mourinho’s defensive tactics were key to so many players losing their form so dramatically.Premier League team of the week Bundesliga team of the week Share on Pinterest Romelu Lukaku La Liga team of the week After Sunday’s one-sided affair, Manchester United have now conceded more shots (236) than they have attempted (213), while their goal difference is back to nought. For a side of their stature, 17 games into a season, that is quite remarkable. For comparison, their goal difference under David Moyes was +21.United’s defence – the fifth worst in the league – must take a lot of responsibility for their struggles but Lukaku’s input, or lack thereof, at the opposite end is another crucial factor. It’s not that his finishing has been particularly poor. Lukaku has converted more than 20% of his chances in the league, but his movement, or at least the intelligence of it, has been lacking.He isn’t picking up goalscoring positions and is partly to blame for the lack of service he is receiving. Lukaku attempted more shots per 90 minutes at both West Brom and Everton (4.4 and 3.3 respectively) than he has during his spell at United (2.5). There is clearly something very wrong.One need only look at his international record to see that Lukaku is still a strong finisher, but if you don’t shoot you don’t score. Sunday was just the latest example of that. In fact, it was the fifth game since the start of October that he failed to muster a single shot. In fact, in recent months Lukaku has taken fewer shots than the man tasked with keeping him quiet on Sunday. Virgil van Dijk has taken 14 shots in the league since in the start of October; Lukaku has taken just 10. Cardiff defender Sean Morrison has had 10 more touches in the opposition box than Lukaku (34) in the same time.Strikers can sometimes get away with a lack of goal threat if they are linking up well with their teammates but Lukaku is also falling well short of expectations in that regard. For some of the world’s very best finishers, their first touch is often a shot and in many cases a goal. In Lukaku’s case at present it’s quite often a useful pass, but unfortunately the opposition are tending to be the recipient. Premier Leaguecenter_img Share on Twitter Manchester United José Mourinho Read more Infographic:WhoScored • Follow WhoScored on Twitter and Facebook• Follow Martin Laurence on Twitter Mourinho’s men mustered just six shots in the entire game and not one between the start of the second half and Liverpool scoring their third goal. Roberto Firmino had 50% more efforts at goal (nine) than the visitors’ 13 outfielders combined, while United striker Romelu Lukaku failed to have a single shot.It wasn’t the first time Lukaku had been kept quiet in recent months. The Belgian hasn’t made much noise all season. The line-up and tactics deployed by Mourinho at the weekend didn’t help Lukaku, but the case remains that the club’s first-choice forward did very little to relieve any pressure on a panicked defence and a failing manager. Zidane? Pochettino? Who will be Manchester United’s new manager? It’s official. José Mourinho is no longer the manager of Manchester United, with the club giving him the sack after an abject performance at Anfield on Sunday. While Liverpool required two deflected strikes to overcome their rivals at the weekend, Xherdan Shaqiri’s goals were little more than they deserved. A lack of ambition from the visitors has seen Mourinho’s time as United boss end with the club 11 points off the top four and and a whopping 19 back on Liverpool.It took Jürgen Klopp’s side until the 73rd minute to regain the lead they surrendered after Alisson’s blunder, but the eventual scoreline was a fair reflection of the game. For all of their 36 attempts at goal – the most in a single Premier League game all season – Liverpool didn’t create too many clear-cut opportunities, but United were so passive throughout the match that a result of any kind would have been an injustice.

Video: Syracuse’s Tyler Roberson Slams Home Crazy Alley-Oop vs. Duke

first_imgTyler Roberson slams home alley-oop dunk against Duke.Vine/Chris StoneFor whatever reason, Syracuse forward Tyler Roberson plays incredibly well whenever the Orange take the floor against Duke. In 2015, Roberson went for 19 points and 10 rebounds against Duke at home, and 16 points, nine rebounds at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Tonight, he has six points and two rebounds midway through the first half, and two of those points were the loudest of the game thus far. Gbinije to Tyler Roberson. Got up. https://t.co/nJTQHgVBaI— Chris Stone (@cstonehoops) January 19, 2016At first glance, Michael Gbinije’s pass looks off-target, but it doesn’t matter.

West Hams penalty shootout hero Adrian thrilled with win

first_imgWest Ham United defeated Mainz 05 on penalties following a 1-1 draw on Tuesday with goalkeeper Adrian coming to rescue by saving a spot-kick, before scoring one of his own to ensure victory for the HammersManuel Pellegrini’s side managed to break the deadlock after 70 minutes at the Silberstadt Arena in Tuesday’s pre-season friendly due to Snodgrass’ cross finding Toni Martinez, who then headed home the opening goal.But the lead would only last for 10 minutes with Robin Quaison equalising for Mainz.With neither side able to score again, the tie was to be decided in a penalty shoot-out.And Adrian stepped up to save Pablo de Blasis’ effort, before then later coolly slotting home his own penalty-kick with Gaetan Bussmann sealing the victory for West Ham to hand the club the Betway Cup for the first time.“It was a very good result,” Adrian told the club website.Alisson Becker, LiverpoolReport: Injury update on Liverpool’s Becker George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Liverpool has released an update on Alisson Beckers progress as he recovers from injury.According to Liverpoolfc.com, there is still no timeline for the Brazillian…“At the end I saved one, I scored one and we won so I am very happy!“It was a good night for us, I thought we played really well. We played against a really good team in Mainz, they play attacking football and they press really high so it was a really good test for us.“I thought we pressed really well, we kept the ball and created good chances. We had the better chances and fortunately we got the win we deserved on penalties in the end. In pre-season it is important that every game you get better and put into practice the manager’s ideas. We are getting there, and it was another good performance.”The Spanish shot-stopper had asked to be one of West Ham’s first five takers, but was turned down by assistant coach Enzo Maresca.“I wanted to be one of the first five penalty takers! I told Enzo that I wanted to take one but they didn’t give me the chance! I was happy to take one, and to score for the team eventually,” he revealed.West Ham will now conclude their pre-season preparations with a final game against French club Angers SCO in Grodig on Friday.last_img read more
