Treehouse is a new concept developed by Jular, a family-owned company, being in the wooden products market for 35 years and ten years in the market of wooden structures. Treehouse is based on sustainability and modularity. Houses grow according to the needs of families or individuals, in the same way as the new branches of a tree.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGTreehouse Riga is a more recent model adapted to a more flexible, solid and new typology. These new modules try to respond to nowadays demands of smaller houses and touristic enterprises.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFor the interior decoration I thought of a mediterranean house environment, with a joyful and cosy interior design. Although there is a contrast with the nordic environment which is regularly associated to the original Treehouse, the mediterranean environment is also connected to the concept of the house.Save this picture!PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse L / Schneider & LengauerArticlesVelodrome Proposal / BNKR ArquitecturaArticles Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeAppleton & DomingosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesPortugalPublished on September 05, 2012Cite: “Treehouse Riga / Appleton & Domingos” 05 Sep 2012.

Oxford students protest Higher Education Bill

first_imgOUSU have funded lecturers and students to protest in central London against proposed Higher Education Bill.Organised by the NUS, students 15,000 took part in a protest on Saturday in London against the Higher Education Bill proposed by the British government. Protestors held signs saying “You can’t spell HE Bill without hell” and “Value my mind not my bank account.”The Bill, proposed in 2015, plans to increase tuition fees in correspondence to inflation from 2017 onwards. It will create new university league tables based on teaching quality which will allow some universities to raise tuition fees higher than others.This could raise fees from £9,000 to £9,250 per year. Malia Bouattia, NUS President, called this new proposed Bill an “ideologically led market experiment.”OUSU urged Oxford students to attend Saturday’s protest and organised coaches leaving from Wadham College to take students there.OUSU commented, “We believe that Oxford students should have their voices heard on a national platform and we aim to facilitate the engagement of our students’ voices with issues of national policy wherever we can.”Balliol, St John’s and Pembroke JCR have also expressed their opposition to the Bill to increase university fees. The Balliol motion called the university’s decision to participate in the Bill as “detrimental to access.” Pembroke JCR donated also £100 towards coaches to take students to Saturday’s protest.After originally expressing an intention to increase fees for all students, the University of Oxford have decided not to raise tuition fees for students enrolled before 2016. This decision came after OUSU posted a video in September, calling the bill “outrageously unfair” and urged students to sign petitions and pass motions in JCRs.However, the university have not opposed the increase in fees for students enrolling from the year commencing 2016. Financial models have estimated that some intuitions can charge up to £12,000 a year by 2026 should this Bill pass. OUSU expressed that the initial £250 increase is “a small step on a slippery slope.” The Bill passed by a majority in Commons on Monday.Sean O’Neill, PPEist at Hertford, was a protestor, told Cherwell, “We need to defend education however we can, in the face of a government which won’t put our students and academics first.“This is clearly an issue that negatively affects students and the future of our university; OUSU needs to be there to represent us.”last_img read more

UWP formally withdraws election petitions from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court

first_imgGoefrey Letang. Photo credit: Dominica Central Newspaper.The two election petitions which were brought against five candidates of the Dominica Labour Party have been formerly withdrawn from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.Lack of access to the state media and bribery were among matters brought before the court following the 2009 general elections but these matters were struck off.The petitions were appealed and expected to be heard at the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court on Monday.Lawyer representing the United Workers Party Jeffery Letang said the appeal would not have been successful.“When you look at the constitution which provides for appeal, it does not provide for appeal as it relates to election petition matters. The constitution provides that if you have to appeal a decision from the high court, an election petition matter, that decision should be a final one. We are of the view that the applications that were heard before Justice Errol Thomas when he allowed that the dual citizenship to proceed and the others were struck off, it was not a final decision of the court of appeal, and so it does not fall within the ambit of the Constitution which provides for an appeal hence therefore it was necessary to withdraw the appeal,” he said.Click here for audio: Letang dismissed suggestions that there was insufficient evidence to successfully prosecute the appeal, “but because we were barred by the constitution,” he said.Dominica Vibes News 29 Views   no discussions Share Share LocalNews UWP formally withdraws election petitions from the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court by: – April 11, 2011center_img Tweet Share Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Young players are key in Trojans’ battle against Ducks

first_imgTal Volk | Daily TrojanHold down the fort · Sophomore linebacker Cameron Smith leads the team in tackles with 55 this season. He also has six tackles for a loss. Smith missed last year’s game against the Ducks due to a knee injury.After an undoubtedly successful October, the Trojan football team welcomes Oregon to the Coliseum for the first time since 2012, looking for their first victory against the Ducks at home since 2008. Head coach Clay Helton reiterated that the key to success against Oregon’s uptempo offense will be winning the third-down battle, getting the defense off the field and sustaining drives on offense. Though the offense has been racking up points for the Trojans lately, the defense expects to have their hands full as well, as they face the top rushing team in the conference. “Defensively, I think it is imperative to get pressure on this quarterback on third down,” Helton said. “If you don’t hit this kid, you’re going to have a long day.”The Ducks’ freshman quarterback Justin Herbert became the first true freshman to start for Oregon since 1983 and he immediately stepped into the role. Herbert has thrown for 996 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast also has high praise for Herbert and has prepped his defense accordingly.“I think he’s very talented,” Pendergast said. “I think they give him a lot, new wrinkles every week, and I’m sure they have some new stuff for us.”Herbert has been helped by his running backs. Sophomore Tony Brooks-James and junior Royce Freeman have each rushed for over 550 yards and eight touchdowns this year. “When you see Oregon on tape, you just feel the speed,” Helton said. “Without question over the last seven years I’ve been here, they’ve always been the fastest team we play …  It’s always been a trademark [for them].”The Ducks have found success with the two-back system so far this year.“When you look at Royce Freeman and Tony Brooks-James, you’re talking about two different types of backs but two dynamic kids that are putting up 248 yards a game,” Helton said. “With Royce, 5.6 yards a carry, and then they put Tony in and Tony is ultra-dangerous. The kid’s averaging 8.6 a carry, and every time he touches the ball you hold your breath.”An advantage that the Trojan defense has this year that they didn’t have in last year’s lackluster 48-28 loss in Eugene is sophomore linebacker Cameron Smith. Smith missed last year’s contest because of a knee injury but has been playing at full speed this year.“It was rough, but I’m ready to play them,” Smith said. “It should be a fun one.”Smith leads the team with 55 total tackles including 32 solo tackles. He also has six tackles for loss and one sack. Smith has forced one fumble as well as recovered one fumble. Helton described him as the rock of the defense.Similarly, the offense has its own unsung heroes — the offensive line. It has allowed one or fewer sacks on average in the last six games despite allowing multiple sacks in the first two weeks. Giving up only nine sacks this season, USC leads the Pac-12 and is 12th in the nation.The performance of the offensive line has allowed both the run and pass game to flourish. Last week’s 398 rushing yards were the most for the Trojans since 2005, but this week will prove a challenge without all of their top backs. Senior running back Justin Davis participated in practice Wednesday but was limited to straight ahead running, and sophomore Aca’Cedric Ware missed practice due to a sprained ankle. The top back will be sophomore Ronald Jones II, who has started the past two weeks. He has run for 529 yards and three touchdowns this year.Redshirt freshman Sam Darnold, who has continued to dazzle with his play, is expecting a lot of similar schemes and coverages from Oregon as he saw against Cal and is feeling confident heading into the game, and rightfully so. Against Cal, Darnold torched the Bears for 231 yards and five touchdowns.“After watching the Utah game on film, I realized how much time I actually had in the pocket … and I think that’s really helped me,” Darnold said.The game is a special one as it is Homecoming weekend for USC. It is also the last time the Trojans and Ducks will meet until 2019. The game kicks off at 4 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN.last_img read more
