The housing development in Vallecas is the main urban planning development in Madrid today. It is almost completely organised in a homogenous pattern of closed square blocks of 75 meters a side. The plot for the competition occupies three thirds of such a block. In the report accompanying the project submitted to the competition we stated:Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánNo to the completely closed block (A)Yes to an open and fractured block (B) that allows for: – the search for sunlight through open spaces – different sized spaces with variable heights – interior and exterior perspectives that provide diverse,  crossed and changing views – diagonals that change with the light and allow diverse approaches and quiet spacesSave this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe building has 163 one-bedroom apartments, two commercial spaces and parking space. There are five floors above-ground and two underground floors. The interior part of the plot has been left free of any underground construction in order to plant a great number of trees that will create a pleasant indoor ambiance. ApartmentsAccess pointsCommercial spaceSave this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánThe building is distributed in 4 blocs with a central corridor serving as access to the apartments. Instead of a uniform and monotonous corridor, probably poorly lit and ventilated, we propose, through subtraction and substitution of habitable cells, its widening in some parts as well as the liberating of some habitable modules, in order to achieve greater diversity, the entrance of more natural light and views.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessMayor of London Suggests Three Potential Sites for Major AirportArchitecture NewsDyv-net, Dynamic Vertical Networks Proposal / JAPA ArchitectsUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:Bulevar de la Naturaleza, 10D, 28031 Madrid, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

House M is a residence in Setagaya for a young couple. They are both graphic designers who often work all hours at home, so we designed it centering on an outdoor space called Outside Living Room, which enables them to feel the outside air from every corner of the house.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaOutside Living Room is surrounded by an exterior wall but is roofless, and the wall has a small opening toward the town. In Japanese cities, houses are built so densely that it is difficult to make good use of an open terrace. Here, since the living room is open upwards while closed from its neighbors, it works as a device to offer a relaxed lifestyle to enjoy the environment outside. Save this picture!© Sadao HottaAll of the rooms inside are designed in relations and distances towards the sound and sightlines in Outside Living Room. The whole house senses the air, light, sound and wind coming through the living room, which enables you to perceive the passage of time and the change of seasons without going outdoors.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaStructure of the house is hybrid: the central pillar and the girder supporting the 2nd floor are steel frame, and a wooden “floor” is laid on this iron “XYZ-axis”. The house is a subtle combination of spacious rooms in sequence and intimate spaces to do work, which is hard to expect from a built area of just 40㎡.Save this picture!© Sadao HottaThe house is virtually single space – stretching from the semibasement to the 2nd floor – but reasonable distances are secured between each room as they are layered.  Project gallerySee allShow less11 Social Housing Units / Zoomfactor ArchitectesSelected ProjectsSwimming Pool Prototype in La Coruña / Francisco MangadoSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Setagaya, Japan 2010 Architects: Teppei Fujiwara Architects Labo Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” House M / Teppei Fujiwara Architects LaboSave this projectSaveHouse M / Teppei Fujiwara Architects Labo Japan Houses Photographs “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/480705/house-m-teppei-fujiwara-architects-labo Clipboard Year:  ArchDailylast_img read more

Farmers Still Waiting for Federal Rules on Drones

first_img Farmers Still Waiting for Federal Rules on Drones Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmers Still Waiting for Federal Rules on Drones Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 20, 2015 Previous articleCounter-Offensive to Defend RFS ContinuesNext articleFarm Equipment Sales Continue to Lag, But There is Hope for the Future Gary Truitt Users who fly drones for fun may soon have to register their machines. A new task force announced Monday (Oct. 19) has been charged with recommending a registration process for unmanned aircraft systems used for recreational purposes.But farmers who want to use drones in their operations for activities like crop scouting and checking on livestock will still have to wait until the Federal Aviation Administration issues its final rules that would govern the use of small UAS in agriculture and other enterprises, said Peggy Hall, Ohio State University Extension’s agricultural and resource law field specialist.The proposed regulations, which FAA published last spring, would require commercial operators to comply with a certification process, which includes passing an exam. Operators would also have to register and maintain the aircraft and follow limitations on aircraft operation, said Hall, who is also an assistant professor for OSU Extension.OSU Extension is the outreach arm of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at The Ohio State University.“Those rules for using small UAS in agriculture and other enterprises likely won’t be announced until sometime in 2016,” Hall said. “FAA is working to create a special category that allows for small drone usage, which right now is not permitted unless you have a special exemption from FAA.“The primary concerns for agriculture use are the proposed visual line-of-sight requirement, which requires that operators maintain visual contact with aircraft, a flight ceiling of 500 feet above ground level and no nighttime flights.”The task force that was announced Monday by the U.S. Department of Transportation and FAA is charged with advising federal authorities by Nov. 20 on a process for drone registration for hobby and recreational drones that would include both new and previously purchased drones, according to the U.S. transportation department.Hobby and recreational drone flights are those that are purely for recreational purposes, as opposed to commercial purposes like agriculture, Hall said.Federal authorities said pilot sightings of UAS doubled between 2014 and 2015, with incidents reported at major sporting events, flights near manned aircraft and interference with wildfire operations, the transportation department said in a statement.The task force will be composed of 25 to 30 representatives from the UAS and manned aviation industries, the federal government and other stakeholders, the transportation department said.The group will advise the department on which aircraft should be exempt from registration due to a low safety risk, including toys and certain other small UAS, the statement said. The task force also will explore options for a streamlined system that would make registration less burdensome for commercial UAS operators, it said.​ Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARElast_img read more

Justice RV Ghuge’s direction is significant particularly in the backdrop of what took place in Bandra, Mumbai and Mumbra area of Thane district on April 14 when hundreds of stranded labourers rushed to the streets demanding to be allowed to travel back to their native place leading to chaos as police finally dispersed the crowd using lathi charge. Several migrants were arrested as well for violating the lockdown. Court was informed by the Amicus Curiae Amol Joshi about a similar PIL before the principal seat at Bombay in respect of the districts covered under the jurisdiction of the principal seat. Similarly, he prayed for liberty to add the district collectors of all the districts within the jurisdiction of Aurangabad bench. Reply on the following questions was sought from such District Collectors- (a) The number of migrant labourers in these districts. (b) Whether there are any shelter homes available for taking care of such migrants, who are unable to travel to their native places, in view of the travel ban considering the lock-down now being extended till May 3? (c) Whether any efforts have been taken by the local administration to have the facility of psychological counseling of such migrants in order to ensure that they are not driven to any extreme step or do not suffer psychological trauma? The bench directed all such district collectors to be added as respondents in the case and asked Government Pleader DR Kale to instruct the district collectors, to prepare data in view of the issues as noted above and tender the data before the Court. Two weeks time has been granted to collect such data. Moreover, Court had asked the amicus curiae as well as Government Pleader Kale to take note of certain news reports, which indicate that the Doctors, Medical and Para Medical Staff, who are deeply involved in extending medical facilities in so far as carrying out the tests of the suspected Coronavirus patients and their treatments, are facing threats from residents of their own localities. These residents want such Doctors, Medical and Para Medical Staff to leave their residential localities as they fear that these people would carry the virus and transmit such infection to the other residents. Furthermore, it was also reported that such Doctors, Medical and Para Medical Staff are being threatened, abuses are being hurled at them and threats of physical assault have also been made. Government Pleader Kale assured the Court that not only would the local administration ensure that such Doctors, Medical and Para Medical Staff involved in the battle against Covid-19 pandemic are adequately protected, but the local administration would be instructed to ensure sufficient security, to ensure that they are not subjected to any such threats or demands for vacating their residential premises. This matter will now be heard on the first day Court reopens on or after May 4.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Dramatic bodycam video captures moment man allegedly takes cop’s gun during struggle, fires shots

first_imgSacramento Police Department(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — Sacramento police have released dramatic body camera video from the moment a man allegedly took a cop’s gun during a struggle and fired off shots.The officer, who did not fire any rounds, was not seriously injured, Sacramento police said.The suspect, Juan Heras-Castro, 33, wasn’t hurt, either. He has since been charged with attempted murder, prosecutors said.The Feb. 22 incident began when police received calls about someone walking with a knife. Responding officers found Castro, handcuffed him, and placed in the back of a police vehicle, authorities said.Castro seemed “calm and cooperative” to the officers, police said.“After some initial questioning SPD officers recognized that Mr. Castro may be suffering from a mental health crisis,” so he was taken to a hospital to be evaluated, police said.Because of his “calm demeanor,” he wasn’t detained in handcuffs, police said.But as medical staff started to evaluate him, Castro abruptly ran out of the hospital, in a shocking moment caught on an officer’s body-cam, police said.The officer’s bodycam shows him sprinting after Castro, through the hospital parking and into a neighborhood.When the officer caught up, “Castro stopped running and became physically combative toward the officer,” police said in a statement.“During the struggle, Castro was able to remove the officer’s handgun from the holster,” they said.The struggle between the two was seen on the body-cam, but after that, the camera is pointed toward the sky.Police say Castro had control of the gun and his finger on the trigger. The officer, afraid Castro would kill him, tried to get control but could only trap the gun against the ground, police said.Three shots and screaming are heard on the body-camera. Police said Castro fired three shots.An off-duty firefighter who was driving by stopped to help and together he and the officer were able to get the gun and take Castro into custody, police said.“The danger posed to the officer and our community during this incident was significant and unacceptable. We are grateful that no one was seriously injured,” police said in a statement on Thursday. “We would like to thank all the citizens, particularly the off-duty firefighter, for the assistance they provided to the officer during this violent confrontation. Your quick thinking and action changed the course of this encounter, saving our officer, Mr. Castro and our community from further harm.”The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office has filed a single count of attempted murder with an allegation that the defendant used a firearm. After Castro was arraigned, his counsel requested that doctors to determine his competency to stand trial “and we are in the initial phases of that process,” said Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Shelly Orio.Castro’s next hearing is April 18, Orio said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
