For this house project, we’ve tried to create a new relation between indoor basketball court and living house. The layout arrangement of this house is inspired by typical gymnasium layouts, where we have the indoor basketball court planned in centre core space of the house, with rooms located on opposite sides of the court.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe house is designed with a unique scale, which makes it hard to define whether the interior space is grand or narrow; the basketball court is ¼ the size of a regular basketball court, with a 3050mm high basketball ring, and a 6000mm high ceiling, which is even large enough to play free-throws. The centre court is also designed to be multi-purpose, with a possibility in becoming a home library, and more possibilities to be explored by the client over time.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoProject gallerySee allShow lessBed One Block Hostel / A MILLIMETRESelected ProjectsBardon House / Bureau ProbertsSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Shizuoka, Japan “COPY” 2015 Japan Projects Architects: KOIZUMISEKKEI Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Photographs: Toshiyuki Yano Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/803813/court-house-koizumisekkei Clipboard Year: Court House / KOIZUMISEKKEI Court House / KOIZUMISEKKEISave this projectSaveCourt House / KOIZUMISEKKEI CopyAbout this officeKOIZUMISEKKEIOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesShizuokaJapanPublished on January 27, 2017Cite: “Court House / KOIZUMISEKKEI” 26 Jan 2017.

Sea Front Villa gets its name by being a unique front line luxury property overlooking the sea. It’s located in Quinta da Marinha, a well-known selected resort in the Estoril – Cascais area, considered the Portuguese Riviera for its lovely dune extended beaches, ancient enchanting palaces, and refined lifestyle. Laying in a plot of land of 3.050 m2 and built area of 1.068 m2, this twelve room family house was intended to be a showcase for elegant, contemporary architecture and design.Save this picture!© Ricardo Oliveira AlvesIn order to fulfill this expectation, the project would respect the amazing beauty of the sea view and natural surroundings, by using pure, well-framed lines, big volume of fenestration and glass, as a special feature.Save this picture!© Ricardo Oliveira AlvesSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ricardo Oliveira AlvesTo serve this indoor-outdoor dialectic purpose, we have specifically elaborated extra slim window frames, of almost non-existent expression, to allow huge spans of glass instead of walls but with dilution in the space that usually frames don’t have. Also, materials and finishes were sourced from around the world and selected for their quality as for beauty, rarity, and sustainability. Warm woods cover the floor, ceilings, and wardrobes, unifying and enlarging the rooms while adding a peaceful, natural quality to living spaces.Save this picture!© Ricardo Oliveira AlvesAll sanitary facilities were covered with marble coming from chosen stone blocks (including a Thasssos block) of which all sections were previously defined, then cut and executed to measure, customizing each bathroom. Some other options and extras reinforce the projects differential aspect, like extended ceiling height or floor-to-ceiling door. Another example is the bathroom equipment with high-performance shower and extra-large tubs, a stunning range of chrome and nickel bathroom fittings.Save this picture!© Ricardo Oliveira AlvesFurthermore, the villa contains simple life-enhancing technology for people who are not technically aware, yet want to enjoy the benefits of modern life. For instance, light and temperature are balanced by detectors that help ensure the property is constantly comfortable. Light levels, inside and outside the property, are controlled and all the window blinds are automatically corrected, to prevent sunlight damage to decoration and furniture. Also, certain windows are opened or closed, to maintain ventilation and keep the villa cool with minimal environmental impact.Save this picture!© Ricardo Oliveira AlvesThe ground floor features the dining room, living room, one toilet, three bedrooms, one suite, an office, a fantastic inner garden and a large and modern kitchen with an island.

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail IL for www.theindianalawyer.comA former state employee who claims she was fired for blowing the whistle on questionable payment practices in the Indiana Department of Environment Management will bring her case before the Indiana Supreme Court next week, when she will urge the justices to allow her complaint against the state agency to continue.Oral arguments in Suzanne E. Esserman v. Indiana Department of Environmental Management, 49S02-1704-PL-189, are set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday before the high court. Suzanne Esserman, who was fired from her position with IDEM in January 2014, has rejected the state’s claim she was let go due to poor work performance.Instead, Esserman said IDEM fired her after she began asking questions about submitted invoices and receipts in the agency’s Excess Liability Trust Fund program. The former state worker claims she refused to rubber stamp approvals for payment through the ELTF division, which led to her discharge.The Indiana Court of Appeals overturned the dismissal of Esserman’s whistleblower complaint in December, and on Thursday she will take her case to the Supreme Court in the hopes of receiving a ruling that will one day allow her to return to work for the state.The court will hear two additional oral arguments on Thursday. First, at 9 a.m., the justices will consider whether Pizza Hut can be held liable for the death of a man whose death was caused, in part, by a Pizza Hut delivery driver striking his scooter.The Indiana Court of Appeals ruled in September the negligent hiring claim against Pizza Hut in the case of Dale Sedam, Kim Sedam, and Bryan Norris, as co-personal representatives of the Estate of David C. Hamblin, deceased v. 2JR Pizza Enterprises, LLC doing business as Pizza Hut, 39S05-1703-CT-00171, can continue.Then at 9:45, the court will hear the case of Will Thomas v. State of Indiana, 27S02-1703-CR-000170. In that case, the Indiana Court of Appeals overturned Will Thomas’ conviction for Class A felony dealing in a narcotic drug after holding the drugs found in his mouth should be excluded under the “fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine.”Thursday’s oral arguments will be the first held without Justice Robert Rucker, who retires today after nearly 18 years on the Supreme Court bench. Gov. Eric Holcomb is in the process of selecting Rucker’s replacement from a trio of finalists – Clark Circuit Judge Vicki Carmichael, Wabash Superior Judge Christopher Goff and Boone Superior Judge Matthew Kincaid.Chief Justice Loretta Rush sent a letter to Holcomb detailing the finalists’ qualifications on April 26. Holcomb now has 60 days from that date to select Indiana’s next justice.
Developed by London-based wholesale bakery Bagatelle, Mariner’s Bread contains 0.4g of salt per 100g and is based on the traditional ‘pain brie’ from Normandy. This was enjoyed by cod fisherman in the Normandy port of Honfleur, from the 16th century onwards, during their expeditions to Newfoundland. With a tight white crumb, golden crust and long shelf life, the bread was traditionally made with a ‘brie’ – a large stone on which the dough was crushed, with a long wooden lever to extract the air. Family inheritanceThe recipe uses flour from the Beauce region of France and salted butter from Isigny Sainte-Mère; it was passed onto Bagatelle’s MD Jacky Lesellier by her great grandfather François, who was a baker in Honfleur in the late 1880s. Although the brie itself is no longer used, this old family recipe has helped Jacky develop a low-salt bread which, she says, is delicious served ‘as is’, or lightly toasted. The Mariner’s loaf is currently sold in Bagatelle’s shop in south-west London, as well as being supplied to the company’s wholesale customers within the M25. Jacky Lesellier hopes that the increased call for ‘healthy’ products will mean Mariner’s Bread will find a market in health food shops and supermarkets.Company historyBagatelle was set up in 1989 by a team of French bakers and pâtissiers. It currently supplies over 50 five-star hotels, clients such as Eurostar and British Airways and some of the best restaurants in London with its range of 50 breads, 37 types of morning goods and over 50 different Continental pastries and cakes. Clients can place orders the night before and products are freshly baked 365 days a year for delivery up to three times a day. Bagatelle also offers a ‘traiteur service’, which organises parties in London.
The holiday season brings songs and stories about Santa Clause with his sleigh full of toys which he delivers around the world to good boys and girls. Magic may not be able to make digital transformation happen, but Santa…Santa runs on magic (along with milk and cookies and lots of imagination).Should Santa’s magic run a bit low, he and his team could turn to IoT technologies to support many of the use cases needed to deliver millions of packages in one around-the-planet journey.Predictive Maintenance and Route OptimizationHow Santa and his sleigh move through space and time so quickly is part of the magic IoT cannot replace. However, the flight mechanics on the sleigh likely need multiple servicing stops. Sensors and smart gateways with VMware Pulse IoT Center mounted near moving parts can aggregate data on actual conditions. This data should be analyzed on-sleigh as much as possible as the latency and networking costs to send data continuously to the North Pole would be staggering. However, key alerts of emerging issues can be sent to the Central Elf datacenter environment, where more in-depth analytics can be run and software fixes sent OTA back to the sleigh. Also, the datacenter/cloud environment could deliver insights from the ground that impacts Santa’s route. Weather-related insights can be used to identify risky storms and low visibility areas for re-routing. Not to mention, we know Santa can only deliver presents to houses where children are asleep. The sleep-monitoring system can stream in final, last-mile adaptions to Santa’s route.Energy and Health MonitoringChristmas Eve is a physically demanding shift for the reindeer, and Santa is a strong promoter of a healthy workplace. Health monitoring is a key use case he can implement to ensure the reindeers’ heart rate and lung capacity stay within a healthy range. Also, Santa’s blood sugar can spike too high if not carefully managed during an evening full of cookies. This too can be remotely monitored…with ongoing reports sent down to Santa’s physicians and Mrs. Claus.Asset Management and Delivery VerificationSanta needs to manage millions of presents and ensure each one is delivered to the right house. Santa is being asked for increased regulatory and compliance reporting and has a need for more proof of delivery for any legal challenges that come up in January. One always controversial input into present allocation is the role of the Naughty vs Nice algorithm. Many children improve markedly in late December and earn their way to the Nice list, and Santa wants to be agile and have flex inventory on hand to deliver to everyone.Santa would be a challenging customer, requiring a broad team of Dell Technologies experts as well as specialized technologies from our partner ecosystem. These challenges are a fun and accessible way to think through the art of the possible, which is an important part of how we work with our customers every day. Let’s all enjoy the magic of the holiday season and we look forward to working with customers on their own IoT magic next year. Happy New Year!
A federal judge has dismissed the University’s religious liberty lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a mandate that requires employers to provide contraceptive services in their minimum health insurance packages. The lawsuit, filed last May, states the mandate would go against Church teachings and therefore violates the First Amendment, the Religious Freedom Act and other federal laws. The mandate is part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, passed in 2010. U.S. District Court Judge Robert Miller Jr. ruled Jan. 2 that the lawsuit should be dismissed because the University’s claim is not yet “ripe,” meaning it is not ready to be litigated. Notre Dame argued the University needs to set aside significant funds for the costs it would incur in connection with the regulations, and those budget decisions need to be made now. But in a compromise announced last year, the federal government had granted Notre Dame and other religious employers a year-long “safe harbor” before any regulations would take effect. In Miller’s written opinion on the case, he stated the defendants have announced they are working to refashion the mandate and its exemptions, and he dismissed the case because Notre Dame remains under the safe harbor for the time they believe is needed for those changes to be made. Court documents list the defendants as Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and their respective departments. “Notre Dame lacks standing to attack the present regulatory requirement because it isn’t subject to that requirement, and, taking the defendants at their word, never will be subject to the present regulation,” Miller wrote. University Spokesman Dennis Brown said the administration is still examining the judge’s ruling. “We are reviewing the opinion and considering our options, but it is important to note that this is not a ruling on the merits of our claim that the challenged mandate infringes on religious liberty,” Brown said. Law professor Rick Garnett, an expert on religious liberty cases, explained that the judge’s reasoning was based on the fact that the mandate has not yet begun to directly affect Notre Dame’s operations. “Simply put, the district court concluded that because the mandate has not yet actually been applied to Notre Dame – and because the mandate might be changed or revised before it is applied to Notre Dame – the legal challenges to the rule are premature,” he said in an email interview. “If Notre Dame is not yet being harmed by the mandate, the reasoning goes, it is not yet time for Notre Dame to challenge its legality.” Garnett said he respectfully disagreed with the judge’s ruling, citing the decision of another judge presented with a similar suit. “In my view, and with all due respect, the judge considering another challenge to the HHS mandate – this one brought by the Archdiocese of New York – got it right, noting that, ‘There is no “Trust us, changes are coming” clause in the Constitution,’” Garnett said. “The mandate, in its current form, is the law and Notre Dame is facing substantial financial costs associated with preparing to comply with that law, if and when the mandate goes into effect.” While protecting everyone’s right in such a diverse society is challenging, Garnett reiterated the Constitution commits the government to passing laws placing a burden on religious freedom only when necessary. “In this case, the burden is not necessary and my hope is that this case will both vindicate the religious freedom rights of the various challengers, but also inspire current and future officials to be more mindful of our foundational commitment to religious freedom that the Administration [and the Department of Health and Human Services] was here,” he said. In an interview with The Observer last fall, University President Fr. John Jenkins explained he felt Notre Dame’s case would eventually be successful as it moves through the legal system. “I saw a few headlines after we filed, ‘Catholic bishops, Notre Dame and 62 other institutions file lawsuit,’” Jenkins said. “That Notre Dame is picked out, and I don’t say this with arrogance, but it just shows I think people look to us for leadership on these issues. If I didn’t feel it was a fundamental issue, an issue of the limits of government as against religious organizations, I wouldn’t have done this.” As an outside observer, Garnett said he expected the ruling to be reviewed and reversed, but the University’s lawyers and administrators are responsible for deciding their next step. The ruling does not preclude another lawsuit after the issue has become ripe. Contact Megan Doyle at [email protected]
