Our NT’s Habitat project is to renovate an old-small warehouse located in the all-year-around hot-dry weather of Phan Thiet city to become a lovely home for a family of four.Save this picture!© Minq BuiFunctionality has always been one of our principles; as a result, within this particular project, we promoted this idea by firstly understanding the client’s needs and then observing the local environment to design a house that not only enhances the living but also harmonizes with the outside factors. To be more specific, the house consists of open areas for connecting and closed areas for privacy. The closed area includes bedrooms and bathrooms while the open area consists of working space, a kitchen, and a playground for kids. All connect to a skylight in the middle of the house. The presence of the skylight serves multiple purposes. Firstly, it enhances the ventilation to decrease the heat due to local weather. Secondly, it provides natural light during the daytime to minimize electricity consumption.Save this picture!© Minq BuiSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Minq BuiWe used the common reinforcement concrete technique to create the construction frame, but the height is higher than usual to hold as much cool air as possible. Interestingly, the façade was made up of locally baked bricks and carefully installed, which enhances the beauty of the whole structure, creates channels for the airflow from outside to inside, and provide visibility for the households. Besides, sandstone sprayed white wall was used in the majority to reduce the absorption of sunlight.Save this picture!© Minq BuiLevel one is the place family gather together the most. Because of the home working of the parents, the working area is designed in the space having an opening view and take care of their children easily. A little library is underneath the staircase where the children read their interesting book or take a nap in the middle of the day. Moreover, the playground area is also a delightful place and designed as a central place of the house by creating a lower layer. It represents as a dining place in daily casual, but it will transfer to a playground where gather all family members in holidays, especially in Tet holiday.Save this picture!© Minq BuiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Minq BuiLevel two designed with the principle is out-bright and in-dark that makes the households feel cozy when taking rest in the bedrooms and have more energy in the morning. The changing shadows on the hallway walls as the day proceeds is one of the appeals on the second floor. By combing the gray tiles and green mosaic in the bathroom, we’ve created a soothing sensation for the users. By elevating the master bedroom, it became distinguished from the surrounding. Using slide doors on both sides of the room, we intend to make it more breathable.Save this picture!© Minq BuiProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Hillside House / UPASelected ProjectsMurteira School Refurbishment / NOZ ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Architects: Flex.atelier Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Vietnam Area:  190 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeFlex.atelierOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookVietnamPublished on December 03, 2020Cite: “NT’s Habitat / Flex.atelier” 02 Dec 2020.

first_img Hernandez’s late return for pre-season training after appearing in the Confederations Cup for Mexico means he has been one of the players who has struggled to make an impact during David Moyes’ first couple of months as United manager. So far he has managed just two starts, plus three more substitute appearances amounting to a grand total of 34 minutes. Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is determined to prove himself worthy of a regular spot with the Old Trafford outfit. Hernandez has still made a positive impact, scoring the only goal in last month’s Capital One Cup win over Liverpool at Old Trafford. But he wants more, even if he acknowledges the competition is pretty stiff. “I am going on four years here at Manchester United and, like I have always said, I am happy to be able to play for one of the best clubs in the world,” he told Mexican TV station Deportes Telemundo. “I am happy, doing my best every single day to earn more minutes on the pitch. “All of us want to be able to contribute our part so this team can win championships.” Yet, with Wayne Rooney remaining at Old Trafford, it is hard to see how Hernandez can make the permanent breakthrough he has been craving since arriving at United from Mexican outfit Chivas in 2010. And that may eventually force the 25-year-old to look elsewhere in a bid to further his career. “I strive for that, I am working towards that; earning a spot as a starter,” said Hernandez, who over the coming days will attempt to revive Mexico’s fortunes and prevent them from missing their first World Cup since 1990. Press Association “I know my performance on the pitch will allow me to achieve that goal some day either here [in Manchester] or elsewhere for any other club. “I just need to be given more opportunities to showcase what I can do.” It is a tricky situation though as Hernandez clearly relishes the battle for a first-team spot with such stellar team-mates. “What better way to compete anywhere in the world than to compete with them (Rooney and Robin van Persie)?” he said. “The competition inside the team has always been really healthy. That helps a lot. Everyone wants to earn a starting spot.” And after such a difficult start to the season, that competition is exactly what United need to push themselves back up the table. “The training and matches coming up will force us to step up and help the team grow both at an individual and collective level,” he added. last_img read more

first_imgFEATURES: Gill & Macmillan Books are extending an open invitaion to attend the launch of Jim McGuinness’ memoir, Until Victory Always, from 7.30pm – 9pm on the 29th of October in The Highlands Hotel, Glenties.Following an appearance on The RTÉ Late Late Show on Friday, 30 October, Jim will also be in Donegal and Letterkenny bookshops on Sunday, 1 November to meet fans and sign copies of the book. He will be at Four Masters Bookshop, The Diamond, Donegal at 12 noon and at Easons, Letterkenny at 3.30pm. For further information visit www.gillmacmillanbooks.ie/JimMcGuinnessA moving and honest meditation on the nature of sportsmanship, dedication and what it means to lead, Until Victory Always is an honest and inspiring account of achievement in the face of incredible adversity.When he took over as manager of the Donegal senior football team in the summer of 2010, McGuinness inherited a wounded thing.When he stepped down just over four years later, the same group of players had won three Ulster championships, the All-Ireland title of 2012 and succeeded in overturning a century-old perception of how Gaelic football should be played. His departure also marked the end of a personal odyssey which had begun almost three decades earlier and weathered the aftermath of two family tragedies.Destined to become a classic, Until Victory Always is the unforgettable and highly personal account of McGuinness’ years at the helm of the Donegal team.Confessional, moving, funny and fiercely honest, it’s at once the epic story of one team’s audacious bid to rewrite its destiny and one man’s moving testament to the power of sport to sustain us in our darkest moments.Until Victory Always is published by Gill & Macmillan on Friday, 30 October 2015, priced at €22.99.For media queries contact Teresa Daly, Marketing and Communications Manager.Gill & Macmillan, 01 500 9521, o86 838 3559, [email protected] DONEGAL FANS INVITED TO ATTEND MCGUINNESS BOOK LAUNCH was last modified: October 22nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:newsSportlast_img read more

(Image: Nicholas Keung, via UWI Gala)Brand South Africa reporterThe University of the West Indies (UWI) has honoured Desmond Mpilo Tutu, the retired Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town, with its Luminary Award.The ceremony took place during the university’s Toronto Benefit Gala at The Ritz-Carlton in Toronto, Canada.The award is given to people with a Caribbean heritage who have achieved outstanding feats internationally, or people who have brought prominence to the Caribbean or to issues that affect the region.Tutu’s daughter, Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu van Furth, travelled to Canada to receive the award on 1 April on behalf of her father.Her father was honoured to continue his strong ties with Canada, she said at the ceremony. “He has this particular fondness for Canada since the 1980s at the height of the apartheid regime. Canada’s support was incredible and the welcome was amazing,” she said.Second time aroundThe university first recognised Tutu for his accomplishments in 1986 when he received an honorary degree.He has been described as having a strong passion for social justices and activism. Tutu became South Africa’s first black archbishop of the Anglican Church and served as the chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.“He has also used his high-profile position to campaign, globally, for poverty, HIV/Aids, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and land rights,” said the university.Tutu has been honoured with other globally respected awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984, the Gandhi Peace Prize, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom from the US.Other recipientsTutu was not the only recipient at the gala.

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… frederic lardinois Related Posts Tags:#web#Web Development#Yahoo center_img Last October, Yahoo announced the Yahoo Query Language, a language similar to the popular database language SQL. Then, this February, Yahoo also announced its first major product that made use of YQL, the Open Data Tables, which allowed developers to create their own table definitions besides the ones already provided by Yahoo. As we reported in March, Yahoo then went ahead and extended YQL with YQL Execute, which gives developers even more flexibility and basically turns the web into a giant database that can be processed and mashed up with YQL. Today, Yahoo announced that it has completed its set of YQL verbs with three more functions (INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE) that now also allow developers to not just read and manipulate data, but also write data back to other services.We talked to Yahoo! Chief Technologist, Sam Pullara, (@spullara on Twitter) and Jonathon Trevor, the product lead for YQL yesterday. They specifically stressed that Yahoo was trying to stay as close to the SQL language as possible, as this would allow the largest number of developers to make use of YQL without having to learn yet another new language. The Read/Write WebWhile the earlier incarnations of YQL were mainly meant to read data, with the addition of these three new SQL verbs, the focus has now shifted towards writing data back to the net as well. Developers can now use YQL to write and modify data on web services and applications. To explain how useful this can be, the Yahoo team used a few different examples. A developer can now easily use YQL to update a Twitter account (even authentication with OAuth is possible), for example, or add a new comment to a blog post, or insert any data into a remote database. Basically, developers can now use YQL to write data back to any web site that uses forms for data entry and to any API, including authenticated APIs. To try this, here is an example from Yahoo (you will have to log in to the YQL console):Try creating a new tweet from the YQL console, follow this link to run this:use ‘http://www.yqlblog.net/samples/twitter.status.xml‘;insert into twitter.status (status,username,password) values (“Playing with INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE in YQL”, “twitterusername”,”twitterpassword”)Pullara and Trevor also stressed that because Yahoo runs YQL on five datacenters spread over three continents (three in the US, one in Europe, and another one in Asia), executing commands through YQL is generally very fast. Yahoo also set some relatively generous rate limits for the service. Developers who use the service and who identify themselves with an access key can make up to 100,000 calls per day, while anonymous users are restricted to 1000 calls per hour, which is still a pretty good number. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

first_imgAs you know, I posted a survey the other day asking for feedback from folks who use Green Building Advisor . At the end of the survey I asked a couple of open-ended questions in order to get some comments. While not nearly enough of you have filled out the survey (if you don’t vote, you can’t complain), a couple of good comments came in. Thanks for filling out the survey and sharing your thoughts with us.One comment, I think, can make a good conversation starter.It criticized us for being unjustifiably critical in terms of payback assessment of some energy-related solutions, and that we don’t have enough good info on solar thermal.The reader says,“Payback scenarios are fleeting and mostly a lot of rubbish to begin with…” and that we “hardly ever address solar thermal (like solar hot water space heating), and even criticize it, again for bad ‘payback.’ ”So what is the cost of building green? Some folks, like Bill Reed , say that if you go far enough you can practically tunnel through the cost barrier — that you can build a superior house for the same cost as a regular house, or even less.Some of the houses in our Green Homes section list sq. ft. prices that are very much in line with what people think is the “right” square foot price—$100/sq. ft. (the same price as when I was framing houses 15 years ago).Some examples from our Green Homes section illustrate that you can spend as much (or as little) as you want to spend. These homes are very high performing homes—the kind with extremely small utility bills.New construction:$94/sq. ft. — The First U.S. Passive House Shows That Energy Efficiency Can Be Affordable$96/sq. ft. — Super Energy-Efficient Home in Vermont$150/sq. ft. — Teenagers Build an Affordable LEED-Platinum Home$196/sq. ft. — Vermont LEED Platinum Home$230/sq. ft. — Sustainable Spec House in Coastal Maine Grabs LEED’s Highest RatingRemodels/retrofits/renovations:<$50/sq. ft. — Deep Energy Makeover$126/sq. ft. — Green Renovation: Same Footprint, Twice the Space$223/sq. ft. — Michigan’s First LEED Platinum Gut-Rehab$250/sq. ft. — Connecticut’s First LEED Gold HomeWe’d love to hear more from our readers on green building costs and payback.What do _you_ think?last_img read more

first_imgAtletico Madrid, within inches of Champions League glory twice in the last four years, are in danger of an embarrassing early exit from the competition unless they can rediscover their scoring touch.Diego Simeone’s side have only netted five times in their last seven games in all competitions, of which they have only won one, and their profligacy continued in a 1-1 home draw with Villarreal on Saturday.The struggle to score has been most pronounced in the Champions League, with Antoine Griezmann’s penalty in the 2-1 defeat by Chelsea the only time they have found the net in Europe’s elite competition this season.Atletico have made their worst start in the tournament since 2009 after taking two points from their three games and must beat Azerbaijani champions Qarabag on Tuesday to have a realistic chance of reaching the last 16.Atletico’s growth has been stunted by a ban on registering new players, barring recent signings Diego Costa and Vitolo from taking part until January, although the team’s biggest problem has not been their ability to create chances, but their struggle to put them away.They were at their most wasteful in the goalless draw at AS Roma, and midfielder Saul Niguez said the game in the Olympic Stadium is still weighing on his mind.”I’m going to be thinking about Rome for the rest of the season because it could really penalise us. If we don’t qualify, I’ll feel more guilty than the rest of the players,” he said in an interview with Marca on Monday.advertisementThe shock goalless draw with Qarabag in Baku two weeks ago was the most disappointing display as they struggled to break down the hosts even with an extra man for the final 15 minutes.BLUNT RECORDPhoto Credit: Reuters Antoine Griezmann squandered their clearest chance that evening and the France international has shouldered most of the blame for the team’s problems.”The chances these superstars keep missing are not normal, and the team should have seven or nine points rather than two,” said former Atletico forward Paulo Futre, writing in newspaper Marca.”Simeone isn’t the one who keeps missing these chances. It’s not his fault a Ballon d’Or finalist wastes a clear opportunity.”Simeone, however, has not been immune to criticism. Former forward Quique Estebaranz said the Argentine coach should promote a more attractive style of play.”I would build a giant statue to Simeone for everything he has given us but I would try and play more attacking football because the club needs to show ambition,” he told Radio Marca.”Atletico needs to give a little more to go even further than we have come.”Atletico will have little choice but to go for broke against Qarabag at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium, otherwise their new 68,000-seater arena will be hosting games in the far less glamorous Europa League.last_img read more
