Riviera House, or MF vacation home, located at Riviera de São Lourenço, on the São Paulo coast, is a project designed by architecture firm Basiches Arquitetos Associados that was adapted and remodeled extensively. The total constructed area is 600m², on a total land area of 1,000m², where volumes were created to provide new spaces for a large family.Save this picture!© Ricardo BassettiWhat makes the design stand out is the proposed space requalification, to better integrate internal and external spaces, and the challenged posed to the firm was to fit the extensive brief into the house’s limited space. The new areas requested by the owners were strategically placed around the existing construction, in such a way as to create a microclimate.Save this picture!© Ricardo BassettiOn the front part of the Riviera House, one of the roof pitches that used to be above the old garage was demolished. For this space, the proposed design was a closing wall that divides the new garage area and the internal access courtyard. The garage is closer to the street, demarcated by a wood-covered metal pergola with a green roof.Save this picture!© Ricardo BassettiSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Ricardo BassettiThe internal courtyard is configured by the wall that determines the social entrance, through a new gym block and a vertical block that determines the main circulation axle of the house, crossing the entire building. This axle relationship is reinforced by the concrete coating that invades the internal living area all the way to the terrace. This axle becomes the house’s organizing element, as new elements are added to the proposed course.The gym block, built with apparent concrete structures, is enclosed with glass, with a green roof. The entrance is marked by the ceiling plan from the upper level, painted a dark color, contrasting with the area with higher, white ceilings that follow the slope of the roof. The view of the beach now expands, as the wooden portico goes through the entire social living area and works as a frame to the outside.Save this picture!© Ricardo BassettiOn the back, with a beautiful ocean view, the proposal was to expand the existing terrace. The new terrace is demarcated by the wood-covered metal portico. Next to this portico is a concrete-coated block that houses the sauna, opened to face the beach. The large, generous veranda connects the house’s interior and exterior, where the beachfront swimming pool is located. The  new 25-meter lane runs through the entire back length of the land, requalifying the deck area. The pool’s tiles, in a shade of green, match the existing garden, leading to the beach. It is worth noting that the renovation favors comfort especially through the use of natural light and wooden brise-soleils.Save this picture!© Ricardo BassettiProject gallerySee allShow lessChris Sharples of ShoP on Direct-to-Fabrication Design and the Future of ArchitectureInterviewsDeskopolitan Renovation / Franklin AzziSelected Projects Share Architects: Basiches Arquitetos Associados Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Area:  600 m² Photographs CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Brazil ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924221/riviera-house-basiches-arquitetos-associados Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBasiches Arquitetos AssociadosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOn FacebookResidência de lazerBrazilPublished on September 04, 2019Cite: “Riviera House / Basiches Arquitetos Associados” [Casa Riviera / Basiches Arquitetos Associados] 04 Sep 2019.

In the period 2006/07, the total amount of private support for the arts in Scotland grew by 49.7% to £42,438,078 million from the previous survey covering 2005/06. Investment from individuals is up 109.7% to £22.5m, the corporate sector up 9.8% to £11.3m and Trusts and Foundations is up 17.5% to £8.5m.Barclay Price, Director of Arts & Business Scotland, said: “This welcome rise in business sponsorship reflects business recognition of the positive commercial benefits that stem from an engagement with the arts, and a desire to link to the world-class art being produced within Scotland. That contributions from individuals have risen so dramatically is further evidence of the outstanding quality of our cultural offer.”Minister for Culture Linda Fabiani said: “I believe strongly in the mutual benefits that come from corporate sponsorship of the arts – involving businesses small, medium and large – and these figures are very welcome. The Scottish Government’s programme of incentive grants to encourage new business sponsors has clearly been successful. It is also tremendous to see such a large increase in the area of individual giving which shows that Scotland’s proud tradition of philanthropy is alive and well.”In spite of positive figures the Chief Executive of Arts & Business, Colin Tweedy offers a note of caution: “Yes, the marketplace is buoyant, but there are clouds on the horizon. If there is financial turbulence ahead, the arts are amongst the first expenditure businesses looks to cut. Arts & Business needs to make sure that in a downturn companies no longer rein in spending on the arts. We must keep spelling out the returns companies make on their investments: be they improved business performance or transformations of public opinion. We also need to ensure that Arts & Business is able to continue to inspire and drive the private sector to invest in the arts and build on this growth.”William Gray Muir, Director of Sundial Properties, said: “The Scottish Government match funding that we received from Arts and Business for our sponsorship of the “Picasso on Paper” exhibition at the Dean Gallery in Edinburgh was essential to our original decision to invest in the arts. The investment was handsomely repaid by both tangible and intangible benefits from our association with one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. I’d urge any business to consider arts sponsorship as a cost effective means of communicating a wide range of messages to customers and employees. I’d also add that our involvement was above all great fun.”Jade Hewat, Festival Manager of Celtic Connections, said: “The incredible success of Celtic Connections this year, and its growth in previous years, could not have been achieved without investment from the private sector. Having sponsors commit to several years of funding gives us a certain level of security that enables us to expand our artistic provision and showcase up-and-coming artists, ensuring that Celtic Connections remains at the forefront of promoting folk and roots music on an international platform.”The Arts & Business report, which draws on data from over 4,676 arts organisations, has earned a reputation as an indicator of the health of the UK’s arts ecology. It also illustrates swings between art form and the regional picture throughout the UK.Other Key Findings include:1. The average overall private income in the UK is £128,000.2. Only 10% of arts organisations show private investment representing more than 50% of their income.3. 78% of arts organisations received private investment (the same figure as in 2005/06), of those who did not receive any private investment, 73% (up from 65% in 2005/06) did not ask for any.4 1.4% receive over £1m in private investment in 2006/07 (67 organisations of which 40 are in London. Out of the top 50 recipients 29 are in London.)The A&B Private Investment in the Arts report reveals London remains the epicentre of the growth. London now accounts for 64% of all private investment. The regional picture is positive with the West Midlands (61%), Scotland (49.7%) and North West (48.1%) seeing particularly strong growth.By art form, theatre (up to £68 million), museums (up to £86 million) and festivals (up to £25 million) saw the biggest increases, though dance (down to under £8 million), opera (down to £13 million) and libraries (down to £3 million) all fell. Visual arts, music and literature all saw slight decreases.~ ends ~For images and spokespeople please contact Ciara Kenealy at Arts & Business 0131 2202499 or e-mail [email protected] to Editors:· Barclay Price, Director of Arts & Business Scotland is available for interview.· Case studies are available on request.· The Arts & Business Private Investment in the Arts report is the only survey in the world to annually produce these figures and report on both business investment and individual giving together.

The companies targeted residents across the UK, but primarily in the West Midlands, distributing ‘charity bags’ for collection.The companies “made misleading representations” that the proceeds raised from the sale of donated clothing would be donated to local air ambulance charities. No evidence of donations made to any air ambulance charity was found.The companies even used leaflets with images similar to the logos of official air ambulance charities, in an attempt to pass themselves off as authorised collection agents. While they traded they were never authorised to act as fundraisers by any air ambulance service, the Insolvency Service’s Companies Investigation team reports.Some of the bogus bags are still unaccounted for. The Insolvency Service urges people to destroy any bags they have that bear the logos of these two companies.Specifically the companies’ activities were judged to be both misleading and in breach of regulations contained in the House to House Collections Act 1939 concerning door to door leaflet dropping where charitable purposes are included. Tthe Act requires companies conducting collections for charitable purposes to obtain a licence. Neither of the companies had done so.Investigation Supervisor, Alex Deane, commented on the High Court’s decision, saying: “In winding-up these companies, the Court has sent a clear message that it is unacceptable to mislead the public and exploit their goodwill towards emergency services and the Insolvency Service will seek to have such companies closed down”.www.bis.gov.uk/insolvency  32 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

AMP Global Is Re-centering Africa as a Global Hub for Technology and Entertainment

Ashong founded AMP Global Technologies, the company behind the Take Back the Mic (TBTM) app, and The Mic: Africa, the first interactive TV format born on the continent. Season 1 of the original music competition and docu-series recently aired on the TBTM app, online at takebackthemic.com, and via 8 free-to-air and satellite broadcasters across Africa. Fans from 128 countries used the app to choose which rappers, singers, dancers, and graffiti artists from six African countries would advance in the competition and receive mentorship from international celebrities. The back-end of the app allows AMP Global to help brands and advertisers identify and reward key cultural influencers, reaching young audiences where they live online. “The AMP Global team is creating platforms that connect cultures through locally relevant content with global production values, and turning that content into currency, by amplifying and rewarding young audiences,” says Ashong, who was born in Accra, Ghana, and raised in the U.S. and the Middle East. “The pandemic forced us to rethink the purpose of technology. While global internet use went up 70% in the early days of the lockdowns, high-speed internet use in Africa was flat at 7%. Africans pay the highest prices in the world for mobile internet access”, says Ashong, “which is a huge barrier to a relatively untapped market of 1.3 billion people.” Committed to expanding internet access and creative opportunities for communities around the world, AMP Global built a toolset within the TBTM app to enable users to earn mobile data based on their engagement, and to use that data anywhere on the internet. That concept of a “gateway to the internet” inspired a broader moonshot initiative called 70×25 (Seventy by Twenty-Five), to 10x high-speed internet use on the continent by the end of 2025. Derrick Ashong and his team safely and simultaneously shot The Mic: Africa in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, Rwanda, Mauritius and Kenya during the Covid-19 pandemic, producing low-cost, but premium-quality content that shows a technologically innovative and creatively cutting-edge Africa previously unseen by much of the world. “We’re combining the power of content and technology to put users in the driver’s seat of their own experience,” says Ashong, “starting with Africa and then expanding to the rest of the world.” About AMP Global AMP Global is revolutionizing the Telecom and Media industries by empowering fans to earn mobile data for discovering and amplifying great content. Its Take Back the Mic app is the premiere interactive rewards platform for the fastest-growing media segment on earth — youth in emerging markets.

According to the petitioner, the eligible and willing female candidates are being denied the opportunity of entry to the National Defence Academy on the basis of their sex, thereby systematically and categorically excluding eligible female candidates the opportunity to train at the premier joint training institute of the Indian Armed Forces which, at a later point of time, becomes a hurdle in the career advancement opportunities for Female Officers in the Armed Forces The plea has stated that the act of the respondents to categorically exclude eligible and willing female candidates from appearing for the National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Examination over the years, solely on the ground of sex, is a violation of the Fundamental Right of Equality before the Law and Equal Protection of the law. The categorical exclusion of eligible female candidates from entering the National Defence Academy is not constitutionally justifiable and is simply done on the basis of their sex. However, the Supreme Court in the matter of Secretary, Ministry of Defence v. Babita Puniya and Ors., clearly observed that the gender roles or the physiological features of a woman have no significance to her equal entitlements under the Constitution of India. The plea has further stated tha texclusion of women solely on the ground of sex is a violation of the Fundamental Right to Protection from Discrimination by the State on the Ground of Sex. While unmarried male candidates having adequate 10+2 qualification are allowed to take the National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Examination, eligible and willing female candidates are not allowed to take the said Examination on the sole ground of their sex and without any reasonable or justifiable explanations within the four comers of the Constitution.”The eligible female candidates having adequate 10+2 level of education are denied the opportunity to take the National Defence Academy and Naval Academy Examination on the ground of their sex and the consequence of this denial is that at the 10+2 level of education, the eligible female candidates do not have access to any mode of entry to join the Armed Forces as Officers. Whereas, equally and similarly situated male candidates with 10+2 level of education have the opportunity to take the Examination and after qualifying join the National Defence Academy to get trained to be commissioned as Permanent Commissioned Officers in the IndianArmed Forces. This is a clear violation of the Fundamental Right to Equality of Opportunity in Matters of Public Employment and the Fundamental Right to Protection from Discrimination by the State on the Ground of Sex in Respect of any Employment or Office under the State.” the plea states. The petition has also stated that the categorical exclusion of women to train at the National Defence Academy and get commissioned into the Armed Forces of the Country as Permanent Commissioned Officers solely on the basis of their sex is a denial of the Fundamental Right to Practice any Profession and it is not justifiable within the contours of the Indian ConstitutionNext Storylast_img read more

Relationship between variability of the semidiurnal tide in the Northern Hemisphere mesosphere and quasi-stationary planetary waves throughout the global middle atmosphere

To investigate possible couplings between planetary waves and the semidiurnal tide (SDT), this work examines the statistical correlations between the SDT amplitudes observed in the Northern Hemisphere (NH) mesosphere and stationary planetary wave (SPW) with wavenumber S=1 (SPW1) amplitudes throughout the global stratosphere and mesosphere. The latter are derived from the Aura-MLS temperature measurements. During NH summer-fall (July–October), the mesospheric SDT amplitudes observed at Svalbard (78° N) and Eureka (80° N) usually do not show persistent correlations with the SPW1 amplitudes in the opposite hemisphere. Although the SDT amplitudes observed at lower latitudes (~50–70° N), especially at Saskatoon (52° N), are often shown to be highly and positively correlated with the SPW1 amplitudes in high southern latitudes, these correlations cannot be sufficiently explained as evidence for a direct physical link between the Southern Hemisphere (SH) winter-early spring SPW and NH summer-early fall mesospheric SDT. This is because the migrating tide’s contribution is usually dominant in the mid-high latitude (~50–70° N) NH mesosphere during the local late summer-early fall (July–September). The numerical correlation is dominated by similar low-frequency variability or trends between the amplitudes of the NH SDT and SH SPW1 during the respective equinoctial transitions. In contradistinction, during NH winter (November–February), the mesospheric SDT amplitudes at northern mid-high latitudes (~50–80° N) are observed to be significantly and positively correlated with the SPW1 amplitudes in the same hemisphere in most cases. Because both the SPW and migrating SDT are large in the NH during the local winter, a non-linear interaction between SPW and migrating SDT probably occurs, thus providing a global non-migrating SDT. This is consistent with observations of SDT in Antarctica that are large in summer than in winter. It is suggested that climatological hemispheric asymmetry, e.g. the SH and NH winter characteristics are substantially different, lead to differences in the inter-hemispheric SPW-tide physical links. read more
