A Single-family residence with garden. 150 m2 living area, terrace, office, carport. House with controlled living space ventilation (passive house).Save this picture!Courtesy of Martin MöstbockThe residence was designed for doing-it-yourself. Shape, geometry and internal organisation are inspired by the movement of the inhabitants, the sun and the moon. The body and shape of the house are designed on one hand to open up big and broad windows on two facades to the garden to bring in as much light as possible to the living areas.Save this picture!Courtesy of Martin MöstbockOn the other hand the shape helps to shade the house itself when the sun is rising to the zenith and give as much possible shadow to help control natural temperature in the living spaces. Another goal was to get the surrounding nature and the garden “into” the building to make the user feel the seasons, and give the possibility “nearly” to touch the elements (rain, sun, grass, snow, etc.).Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less’Dove of Peace’ Church / WEAVA ArchitectsArticlesGiveaway Winners: Ten copies of ‘How to Make a Japanese House’Articles Sharelast_img read more

Rest in Power, Robyn

first_imgAlways wear a helmet, no matter how long or short a rideUse your arm signals: left turn, right turn, slowing/stoppingWhen biking in a group, use your voice signals to other group members: Slowing! Stopping! Clear! Car back! Car up! Hiker up! Obey the rules of the road. Stop at stop signs and lights.Wear bright, highly visible clothing: reflector tape/ reflectors are a plus!Never ride in low-light or dark conditions without front and rear bike lights and reflectors. (You can be ticketed and fined for biking without lights!)Ride with the flow of traffic, not against it.Ride in control at all times. Proceed at a safe speed that permits you to react quickly to unexpected circumstances.Yield to pedestrians and other vehicles. Rules of Road Biking “Robyn’s application to our program was the most passionate, in-depth one we’ve received out of hundreds of applications. She wrote about the impact cycling had on her life,” the post read. Here is an excerpt from Hightman’s application: The driver of the truck, witnesses say, appeared to take off but returned a short time later after he was flagged down by another driver. According to PIX11 the driver was unaware they had hit a person. REI Bike Safety List Richmond cyclist Robyn Hightman was killed on Monday, June 24th by a delivery truck in Manhattan, NY. “Today we received devastating insight into a terrible reality of cycling,” the post said. “The roads are not a safe place for us and we all must work harder to change that.” Bike Safety Riding Technique Road Awareness Members of the biking community in RVA are coming together to grieve. Stay alert to changes in your surroundings at all times.Communicate your intentions to drivers and other cyclists as much as possible. Use hand signals whenever you turn or stop, but assume that those signals might not be understood by every driver. Watch our video on using hand signals. The pain is not only felt in NYC or RVA, but throughout all biking communities. It is important to not let tragic incidences like this scare us out of biking. Instead, we must learn from them and educate each other. REI offers these important bike safety rules: Keep a safe distance between yourself and other riders or vehicles. What qualifies as safe? Enough space to allow you to react to something unexpected. In general, aim for 1 bike length (or more) per each 5 miles per hour you’re traveling. Keep at least 4 feet between you and a vehicle.Don’t hug the curb too closely. Maintain a comfortable distance from the pavement edge.Ride in single file. This is required by law in most states. (Note: Some states allow cyclists to travel 2 abreast. Do this only on less-traveled roads that are free of traffic. Riding 3 abreast is usually illegal.)Don’t ride on sidewalks unless no other safe option exists. Motorists at intersections or when leaving or entering driveways often do not see swift-moving cyclists traveling on sidewalks.Likewise, watch for cars coming out of alleys. They may not see you.Don’t pass other cyclists on the right.When needed, make noise—use a horn, a bell, whistle or just yell.In heavy, slow-moving traffic, it’s often safer to ride in the middle of a traffic lane so that everyone can see you and cars won’t try to squeeze around you.On busy streets, don’t swerve back and forth around parked cars or other obstacles. Maintain a straight course and watch out for opening car doors.Be ready to brake. Keep your hands on or near the brake levers so you can stop quickly.Pedal strongly when going through intersections.If 5 or more cars are behind you, pull over and let them pass.Be predictable. Robyn Hightman was working as a bike messenger that day, something she had been doing for years in Richmond, Va. as seen in the photo above by Grant Fanning. Hightman operated a well-known bicycle courier service call Quickness RVA in Richmond, Va. “As a homeless youth deeply entrenched in the trappings of poverty and parental abuse and neglect, my first bicycle offered a way to seek respite from the horrors of my surroundings and human experience, if only for a few glorious minutes. My bicycle established a sense of independence, strengthened my ability to be self sufficient, and provided me with the confidence necessary to advocate for myself, my rights, and my needs in public space. My bicycle enabled me to leave our encampment every day to access education, seek out food, and fulfill my basic needs. Eventually, my bicycle allowed me to provide for myself when I began working a full time job at the age of fourteen. My bicycle provided me with the socioeconomic mobility necessary to escape. My bicycle saved my life.”Robyn Hightman describes their deep love for cycling in their application to Hagens Berman Supermint Pro Cycling Team. According to a post by REI, Hightman was a well-known and beloved member of the Richmond cycling community. In January, Hightman was named an ambassador for the Hagens Berman Supermint Pro Cycling Team, an organization that advocates for women cyclists. The cycling team remembered Hightman as a “strong, beautiful, gutsy rider” in a Facebook post on Monday afternoon. Police determined the cyclist was not in a bike lane and was traveling between vehicles when struck. The truck driver was questioned by police but was only cited for violations pertaining to the vehicle’s rig not being up to code says PIX11. Hightman is one of 12 cyclists to be killed in New York City so far in 2019. The Hagens Berman team says they hope others will join them in remembering Highman’s life and spirit. The Richmond biking community also held a group bike ride through town honoring their lost family member. Hightman was struck on Sixth Avenue near 24th Street just after 10 a.m. Hightman was given CPR at the scene and rushed to Bellevue Hospital where the 20-year-old was pronounced dead.last_img read more

Suarez claims rankle with Rodgers

first_imgLiverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has expressed disappointment over the behaviour of star striker Luis Suarez. Rodgers’ remarks suggested he believes Suarez’s recent comments do not reflect the ‘Liverpool way’, and he vowed to deal with any player who steps out of line. The Uruguayan has threatened to hand in a transfer request if he is not sold, insisting in a newspaper interview he has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave to join a Champions League club for £40million. Arsenal have offered £40million, plus an extra £1, but Liverpool are adamant no such buy-out clause exists in Suarez’s contract and, speaking after the 4-1 friendly win over Valerenga, Rodgers addressed his star player’s handling of the situation. Rodgers said, according to official club website “My conversations with players will always remain private. I’ll never disclose any conversation between a player and I. In terms of the remarks that were made, this is a football club that has always worked a certain way. “The Liverpool way is all about a club with ambition, a club that strives to be the very best, a club that is about commitment – that means that everyone is committed to the cause of fighting for the shirt. “It’s also about dignity and being dignified in how you speak about the club, on and off the field, and it’s about unity. “Those are the four values that run through my mind when I think about Liverpool. Those are the values we will always retain. If anyone steps outside of that standard, I will deal with it. That’s something that we’ll do. “It means that we have a standard at Liverpool that I will fight for my life to retain. There will never be any player or person bigger than the club.” While Suarez believes there is a clause in his contract which allows him to leave, Liverpool have confidence in their position. They have always maintained the £40million mark was the point at which they had to inform the player of an approach and was the basis for the beginning of negotiations should they wish to sell. Suarez has been the centre of much controversy since joining the Reds from Ajax in January 2011, serving a ban for racially abusing Manchester United’s Patrice Evra and, more recently, being banned again for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic. And the club have backed Suarez throughout his trials and tribulations at Anfield, with Rodgers being particularly vociferous in his defence in the past. “Professionally, Luis Suarez has given me everything since I came into the football club, but there is obviously a way in which you have to speak,” Rodgers added on Wednesday night. “This is a club that has offered Luis Suarez the utmost respect since the day he walked through the door. “That’s something that over the course of the coming weeks you need to have when you work for Liverpool Football Club. You’ve got supporters and players that have given Luis Suarez absolutely everything – they backed him to the hilt. “Even at the weekend, when we had Steven Gerrard’s testimonial game, the supporters raised the roof for him. That’s something that I will always fight to retain at the football club, because that is what Liverpool is about – respect, humility and real dignity.” Suarez’s latest outburst came on Tuesday when, in an interview with the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian, he expressed his desire to leave in search of Champions League football. While the contractual ins-and-outs may eventually need a lawyer to unwrangle, it is clear that Suarez believes that, at the very least, he has a gentleman’s agreement with Rodgers. “Last year I had the opportunity to move to a big European club and I stayed on the understanding that if we failed to qualify for the Champions League the following season I’d be allowed to go,” he said. “I spoke with Brendan Rodgers several times and he told me, ‘Stay another season, and you have my word if we don’t make it then I will personally make sure that you can leave’. “I gave absolutely everything last season but it was not enough to give us a top-four finish – now all I want is for Liverpool to honour our agreement. “They gave me their word a year ago and now I want them to honour that. “I have the club’s word and we have the written contract and we are happy to take this to the Premier League for them to decide the case, but I do not want it to come to that. “We have the backing of the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association).” But PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor believes ambiguity in Suarez’s contract means success via legal recourse is far from guaranteed. “If you are going to have a supposed buy-out clause it should be that but it is different as it says if there is no qualification for the Champions League and if there is a minimum offer of £40million then the parties will get around the table to discuss things but it does not say the club has to sell,” he told Press Association Sport. “It quite clearly states £40million is a minimum offer for discussions but it becomes really difficult with such clauses. “There is a ‘good faith’ clause in relation to serious discussions but I can’t say it is cast-iron buy-out clause. “Luis is one of our members and we want to be supportive, however, he may well have thought such an offer would trigger a move. “The interpretation is not that simple by any means and there is no guarantee of getting a (successful) result if it is referred to the Premier League.” Press Associationlast_img read more
