Wolf NotesFrom Caroll Grimando – Principal of Wolf Lake Middle SchoolWe hope your holiday is off to a wonderful start! This is a great opportunity to spend time together and take a break from school and work. It is also a good time to review the 1st semester with your child and prepare for the demands and expectations of the 2nd semester. We have encouraged our students to set academic and behavior goals and this would be a great discussion for you to have with your child over the holiday break.Here are some suggested questions:What grades and/or subjects would you like to improve in the 2nd semester?What is your goal? What would make you feel successful?What could you do to reach that goal? (Be specific and name the behavior)What could you stop doing in order to reach that goal?Free after-school tutoring will also resume in the second semester and this is an opportunity for your child to receive assistance and extra practice in Language Arts and math.Remember that students must come to class with the necessary supplies to eliminate lost instructional time. The supply list for each grade can be found below or on the Wolf Lake Middle School website. Teachers are finding that students do not have the basic supplies such as pencils, paper, and highlighters for class. Please ensure that your child comes to school with these items so that class time can be focused on learning. School supplies also make great stocking stuffers!We continue to be proud of our Wolf Lake students and we look forward to a fantastic second semester! Have a great holiday break!

The site of the Gugidong House is surrounded by buildings on all sides, except where it is flanked by a large stone reinforcement wall along its backside. Because the extant ground floor lacked conditions for natural ventilation or lighting, the focus of the project shifted towards optimizing the top floor, comprised of a large outdoor deck and one small room. Unburdened by perimeter walls the deck allows those who find their way to it to enjoy the full panoramic view towards Bukhan Mountain. At the same time, its clear PVC sheet roofing allows the surrounding forest scenery and sunlight to extend deep indoors. Underneath the PVC sheet, a layer of expanded metal breaks and shatters the incoming sunlight. Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Sergio PirroneThe organization of the house revolves around the specific requests of its clients. There are three bedrooms: one for a couple, and the remaining two for their children. Each is placed side by side on the second floor, allowing for all three rooms to share a common uninhabited view towards the mountain.Also requested by the couple was a private bath, reflecting their future prospects for investing in the residence in the long run.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneCompared to the permanency of these interventions, the rooms for their children were built more informally, divided by a non-bearing wall with the possibility of future expansion. With the incredible panoramic views provided by the site to look out onto the nearby mountains, the third floor terrace serves not only the purpose of an informal family gathering space, but doubles in its ability to host casual business meetings as necessitated by the client’s lifestyle.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneSave this picture!South elevationSave this picture!© Sergio PirroneThe main structure, made in reinforced concrete, is hinted at in the building’s interior finish. Taking advantage of the external insulation system, the exposed concrete is consistently used as an annotation of the home’s interior walls. This serves both an aesthetic ends while minimizing the burden of additional interior finishing costs on the project’s budget. Externally, a screen façade and ample insulation achieve thermal efficiency and sustainability.Save this picture!© Sergio PirroneProject gallerySee allShow lessBarrio Restaurant / DFJ ArchitectsSelected ProjectsCharacter Café & Gallery / OJAN Design StudioSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Sergio Pirrone Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houseslast_img read more

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. Residential complex Vander Park, Moscow. Vander Park is situated in Western Moscow which is characterized by its modernist layout, woodlands, and the river Moskva. It is a typical contemporary Moscow housing project: large-scale, compact and high density. This first realized project of the Architekten Cie. in Moscow, designed for the renowned Russian developer PIK Group, comprises no less than a thousand apartments on a site of approximately 2.4 hectares. Consequently, dense and high-rise construction is required. To maintain a human scale in the project, we approached it as a case of urban planning and designed the complex as a vertical city in the city. Thanks to the many passageways leading from the street to the garden court, the complex is closely connected to the surrounding neighborhood.Save this picture!© Alexey NarodizkiySave this picture!DistributionSave this picture!© Alexey NarodizkiyVander Park is organized around a central garden court defined by a low plinth of up to six levels with eight residential towers on top. These towers, 18 to 26 stories high, are designed as sequences of stacked volumes clad in brickwork of different colours, a playful composition lending a distinct identity to Vander Park on the Moscow skyline. To meet minimum daylight requirements, some towers are rotated 45 degrees and positioned in such a way that they guarantee beautiful views from each of the apartments. In addition, the rotations articulate the most prominent corners of the block and produce constantly alternating vistas of the towers in their urban setting.Save this picture!© Alexey NarodizkiyThe plinth that encloses the garden court is composed of the six-meter high ground floor with five stories of apartments and maisonettes above it. At ground floor level commercial spaces are positioned along the streets while numerous amenities for residents are facing the courtyard, such as sports facilities and children’s daycare. Along the perimeter of the court a pedestrian walkway on top of the high ground floor surrounds the garden and softens the transition between the intimate garden court and the high towers. All homes on this level have an outdoor space directly adjacent to the promenade so that a sense of community can unfold. Contrasting the towers, the plinth is clad with dark brick of a more tactile character, emphasizing the human scale of the street as well as the courtyard. The communal garden, designed by West 8, is equipped with many trees and has a round canopy as its center point, providing shelter in wet or windy conditions.Save this picture!© Alexey NarodizkiySave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Typical Floor Plan TowerSave this picture!© Alexey NarodizkiyBrick is the primary façade material in Vander Park, forming a basic framework for the countless windows and aluminum panels. In today’s Russia brickwork is associated with quality because it contrasts to the grey concrete and stucco that used to dominate residential buildings. We developed five standard façade designs that, thanks to a mix of brick sortings and colors, offers a great deal of variety without compromising the unity of the urban ensemble. Among the five standard façades two versions were made especially for the plinth. One with bay windows which ensure a good visual connection between the private homes and the street below, and one with a more tectonic appearance. This facade has more detail, such as vertical brickwork and protruding stones, creating a more tactile experience at pedestrian level.

On a lazy bend of Tasmania’s Timtumili Minanya, the River Derwent, the site slopes steeply both to the high-watermark that defines the western boundary and to the freshwater lagoon to the north. From the waterfront to the road the site is embedded with a rock. A delicate layer of topsoil supports indigenous grasses, plants, and she-oaks close to the water and larger eucalypts on the higher ground closer to the road.Save this picture!© Paul HermesSave this picture!© Paul HermesWorking in sections throughout the design process enabled careful consideration of site levels and detailed exploration of the building’s relationship with the ground upon which it sits. A courtyard, a colonnade, ledges, and terraces soften the building’s interface with the landscape and encourage connections by creating spaces protected from the summer sun, driving rain, and wind.Save this picture!© Paul HermesThe approach to the home is via a long drive that skirts a timber-clad boat shed. Arriving at an informal forecourt where the entrance forms a deep recess on an otherwise closed façade. A blank wall to the South curves to follow the site contours and direct views to the opposite shore. Similarly, the timber ceiling is a continuous curve for the length of the home. The entry lifts to address Mt Direction, then dips low to compress the space before lifting again to reveal river views and Kunanyi / Mt Wellington on the opposite shore.Save this picture!© Paul HermesSave this picture!Plan – Upper floorSave this picture!© Paul HermesThe living space is perched high, drawing the water close and accentuating the drama of living at the water’s edge. In contrast, the lower floor is embedded in the rock, its outlook sheltered as the ground falls away to the water. This west-facing facade pivots to form a soffit lined with suspended masonry. Deep window reveals create privacy and form places of rest. The façade wraps back into the site to define a sun-drenched terrace that in time will feel like a remnant of a previous structure. This terrace was inspired by the remains of a ruined farmhouse embedded on steep rocky ground, overlooking the Amalfi Coast.Save this picture!© Paul HermesMaterials were selected to endure a harsh environment and to resist bushfire. Locally sourced masonry has been custom-manufactured to complement the tones of the setting. External timber is hardwood terraces are Australian bluestone. Consideration of sun angles determined the colonnade depth to exclude summer sun. Low angled winter sun warms the polished slab, supplemented by under-floor heating and a combustion fire that manages site fuel loads. Thermal mass, insulation, and double glazing maintain stable temperatures throughout the year.Save this picture!© Paul HermesSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Paul HermesProgrammable external Venetians address the conflict of western views and high solar gains, while cross ventilation and active night purge use evening breezes to drop slab temperatures.

Millions of Vietnamese and tens of thousands of U.S. and allied forces died. The U.S. had brought its considerable military might to try to reverse the Vietnamese victories over French and Japanese colonialism. A fight between an economically weak but politically fierce Vietnam ended up defeating the forces arrayed against it.

Police raid silences Chiapas community radio station

first_img April 28, 2021 Find out more October 15, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police raid silences Chiapas community radio station MexicoAmericas Organisation Reports The police and judicial authorities in the southeastern state of Chiapas must explain a 12 October raid on Radio Proletaria, a community radio station in the city of Tuxtla Gutiérrez, in which arrests were made and the station was summarily dismantled.The raid was carried out at night by around 30 armed and masked members of the police and the Chiapas State Attorney-General’s Office (PGJE), who did not identify themselves or show any kind of warrant. Six people were arrested, including a 14-year-old boy who works for the station. He was held for 24 hours.All of Radio Proletaria’s broadcasting equipment was seized, reducing it to silence. Located in the premises of the Emiliano Zapata Popular Organization, the station is affiliated to the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC).AMARC and Reporters Without Borders call on the Chiapas authorities to publicly explain what took place during the raid and why it was carried out. Was Radio Proletaria broadcasting on an illegal frequency? And if so, why couldn’t the authority have ordered it to comply with the regulations, without resorting to repression and censorship?The Chiapas State Attorney-General’s Office has violated the right to impart information and must return the stolen equipment to Radio Proletaria without delay.The arrest of a minor, who was denied the right to contact his family, was also a flagrant violation of the most basic rules of criminal law. While held, the boy was ordered to identify the home of three other Radio Proletaria representatives. The officials responsible for this inadmissible procedure deserve more than administrative sanctions. And in the absence of legitimate charges, those still being held must be released.The criminalisation of community radio stations in Mexico is nothing new. The methods used by the Chiapas authorities to intimidate this community and silence its radio station recall those used by the federal army and police against the indigenous radio station Uékakua in January 2009 in Michoacán. In both of these cases, the American Convention on Human Rights was violated. The Organisation of American States should demand reparation by the Mexican authorities.

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The owner of a controversial company that makes 3D-printed gun blueprints has reportedly been arrested in Taiwan after being accused in Texas of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old and then paying her $500.The U.S. Marshals Service is aware of suspect Cody Wilson’s arrest, the agency said in a statement Friday. “We are fully engaged with our international partners on this matter,” according to the statement.Staffers at the Zhongzheng Second police precinct in Taipei, Taiwan, where the media outlet Taiwan News reported the apprehension, were familiar with the case but could not confirm any arrest because of the late hour there, they told ABC News.Authorities had issued an arrest warrant for Wilson, 30, on Wednesday in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a minor.The Austin man owns Defense Distributed, which sells blueprints for producing plastic firearms using 3D printers.The alleged victim, an unnamed 16-year-old girl from Central Texas, told a counselor she’d had sex with Wilson Aug. 15, 2018, in an Austin hotel before he paid her $500, according to the arrest warrant affidavit filed Wednesday in Travis County District Court.Wilson’s last-known location was Taipei, Taiwan, according to Austin police. He missed a scheduled flight back to the United States after leaving the country before police could interview him, Texas authorities said at a news conference Wednesday.“We don’t know why he went to Taiwan but we do know before he left, he was informed by a friend of the victim that she had spoken to police and police were investigating him,” Austin police Cmdr. Troy Officer said Wednesday, adding that he didn’t know when Wilson left the United States.Austin police Friday directed ABC News to the U.S. Marshals Service, which has assumed the lead in the investigation.In the arrest warrant affidavit, Austin police said they received a call from a counselor Aug. 22 who reported that a client, a girl under the age of 17, had reported having sex with a 30-year-old man a week before.On Aug. 27, police were present when staff from the Center for Child Protection interviewed the alleged victim. The girl said that she’d met the man on SugarDaddyMeet.com and that he’d used the screen name “Sanjuro,” according to police.A search of the girl’s cellphone uncovered messages to SugarDaddyMeet.com as well as links to messages from Sanjuro, according to police. And, in one message, Sanjuro identified himself as Cody Wilson, police said.Wilson’s Texas driver’s license picture also matched the “Sanjuro” profile image on SugarDaddyMeet.com, police said.Wilson and the girl met at a coffee shop Aug. 15 and left together in a black Ford Edge, police said. They said the vehicle was similar to a 2015 black Ford Edge registered with Wilson’s business, Defense Distributed.Police said they reviewed hotel surveillance footage “showing the victim and Wilson exiting an elevator onto the seventh floor. … Hotel records showed that Wilson was the lone registered guest for room 718 on that date.”Wilson sexually assaulted her and then “retrieved five $100.00 bills from a bag on the floor” and gave her the money, the alleged victim told police, according to the affidavit.Video showed the two leaving the hotel, the affidavit alleged. He later dropped her off at a Whataburger restaurant, she told authorities.Detectives have spoken with the victim, Officer said at the news conference, and “in their opinion, if someone mistakes her age, it would be because they think she’s younger, not older, than the 16-year-old that she is.”ABC News’ attempts to reach Wilson have been unsuccessful.Wilson could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, according to ABC Austin affiliate KVUE-TV.Wilson is a self-described “crypto-anarchist” at the center of a fierce legal battle over whether Americans should be able to print guns that would be unregulated and untraceable.In 2013, he successfully fired a bullet from the world’s first 3D-printed handgun and posted its design online. The video got nearly half a million views and the design was downloaded nearly 100,000 times. The link was later terminated by law enforcement officials.Years of litigation followed, leading to a settlement in July allowing Wilson to re-release the gun’s downloadable blueprints.Over the summer, however, a federal judge temporarily stopped him from putting gun blueprints online and in August, a federal judge in Seattle extended the injunction, after a coalition of states and the District of Columbia said making plastic weapons available would create a public safety issue.Later that month, Wilson said he’d started selling the plans for producing plastic firearms using 3-D printers despite an injunction blocking it because of concerns about public safety.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
