The Arc House is a private residence designed for a couple and their two big dogs.The site is under a flight path to the local airport and close to a train track. We felt that by using an industrial building technology, an airplane hangar, we would transcend the perceived limitations of such proximities. Further, we were all seduced by the idea of a large column-less self-supporting canopy that enclosed all the public spaces of the house -cost effectively.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWoodParklex International S.L.Wood cladding – FacadeWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodEGGERLaminatesThe challenge was to find a scale for the arch that would transform this building system into an intimate and enclosed space. At a radius of 39’ with a peak ceiling height of 16’, we felt the building would be small enough to feel comfortable and yet have a sense of largeness associated with its uninterrupted ceiling curve.The arch contains the living, dining and kitchen areas in an open plan.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneThe entry canopy to the arch and a few other components within it are at a height of 7’, creating a touchable lower plane within the larger structure. To allow the client flexibility to add future bedrooms, we decided to house them in a flat- roofed section, in the rear, that is made of structural insulated panels (SIPS).Save this picture!first floor planThe lower level houses an office, a sitting room, a garage and work out areas; part of the lower level opens to a courtyard that allows cool air circulation and a distinctly private outdoor space.Save this picture!By splicing the house into the landscape, we were able to transform the flat site into one with multiple horizons and take advantage of natural cooling and passive design.The energy usage of the house is significantly less than a typical house of this size; due to both the arc shape and materials used.SIP panels, high-thermal windows, closed-cell foam insulation and a metal roof were chiefly used while the use of conventional lumber was limited to interior framing and the exterior cedar siding only.Project gallerySee allShow lessEco-Temporary Refuge / CiminiArchitetturaArticlesAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XXXIArticles Sharecenter_img Photographs ArchDaily Arc House / MB ArchitectureSave this projectSaveArc House / MB Architecture Architects: MB Architecture Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•East Hampton, United States Save this picture!© Matthew Carbone+ 14 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMB ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEast HamptonHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 28, 2011Cite: “Arc House / MB Architecture” 28 Jan 2011.

Journalist given 13 months in jail for insulting Mohammed

first_img Organisation News Follow the news on Turkey TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Receive email alerts Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the sentence of 13 and a half months in prison that an Istanbul magistrate’s court passed yesterday on Turkish-Armenian journalist Sevan Nisanyan for posting “insulting” comments about Mohammed in his blog.“Nisanyan’s jail sentence is a grave violation of freedom of information and sends a threatening message to fellow journalists and bloggers that is unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It should be overturned on appeal. Suppression of comments critical of Islam has no place in a secular country such as Turkey.”“We have often hailed the gradual weakening of Turkey’s Kemalist – secularist, nationalist and militarist – taboos but democracy will not benefit if they are replaced by a new religious censorship.” Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge legislators to repeal article 216-3 of the criminal code, a draconian provision that is the basis for a growing number of prosecutions.”Nisanyan was convicted under article 216 of “denigrating the religious beliefs held by a section of the society” in a blog entry posted on 29 September 2012 that prompted 15 different complaints. The court said the sentence could not be suspended because Nisanyan had a previous conviction. If upheld on appeal and by the Court of Cassation, he will have to serve the sentence.Nisanyan’s blog entry said hate crimes must always be combatted whether they target Muslims or other groups but he argued that the controversial anti-Islamic video “Innocence of Muslims” did not constitute a hate crime.“Making fun of an Arab leader who claimed he contacted Allah hundreds of years ago and received political, financial and sexual benefits is not hate speech,” Nisanyan wrote. “It is an almost kindergarten-level test of what is called freedom of expression.”He added further down in the post: “You also have to wonder why these friends who used to be so quick to denounce hate crimes against minorities and other ethnic groups in our country no longer manage to be consistent when it comes to reacting to defend Islam and Muslims.”Article 216-3 of the criminal code, which prohibits “openly denigrating the religious beliefs held by a section of the society,” was included in a legislative reform adopted in 2005. Any violation deemed “sufficient to endanger public peace” is punishable by six months to a year in prison.It was under this article that the pianist Fazil Say was given a suspended 10-month jail sentence last month. It was later canceled.

Diary of an on-line mentor

first_imgTheInternet promises to dominate our future. But what will a typical trainer’s jobreally be like? We asked e-learning mentor John Agate to keep a diary of hisweekMondayThemorning was spent reviewing learning progress reports for the participantsdoing the new project management course. The message seems to be gettingthrough at last. Looks good – 75 per cent had completed the first two modulesand only 5 per cent had not completed the first one.Automatice-mail reminders had been sent to these folk but I followed up with a personalmessage to each myself. I feel it is important that they know I am keeping aneye on them and that they can call me if they are having problems. Theinitial section of the second module was posing a few problems for several people,so I sent out a general e-mail explaining the topic in an alternative way. Hada number of replies saying that my e-mail had helped.Forwardedthe whole lot to our e-learning partner who said they would incorporate mynotes in the module. (I checked on Tuesday morning and they were already up. Ican’t believe how fast we are able to change things these days.)Mondayafternoon was fun. I moderated a virtual workshop on responding to difficultcustomers as part of the customer care program. Participation was optional andnot everyone could spare the hour but 22 people logged on. Iposed some real examples of upset customers from our welcome centre, and theparticipants typed in their suggestions on how to respond to each customer.Isat back after a while as a discussion ensued with everyone critiquing eachother’s replies. Ifinished the exercise by asking a couple of the quieter participants tosummarise, which they did. I sometimes think that “quieter” actually means“slower at typing” and in my job, it is good that I can type with more than twofingers.Afterthat, I had a meeting to prepare for a virtual discussion on using thetelephone to make sales appointments. Most people are happy with this topic buta few seem to need a bit of help. Iwill speak to our e-learning partner about getting a couple of live video callsincluded just to show them how it’s done.TuesdayIgot on-line early as people wanted to discuss some of the issues arising fromone of the sales training modules. There were a number of e-mails waiting forme, all of which had been sent to the training group as well, so I started withthem. Good points were made by many of the participants and I think thediscussion enriched everyone’s understanding of the module on handling objections.Inthe afternoon, I “met” with marketing who want to carry out a product launchusing our e-learning system. A good meeting that drew training and marketingcloser together. I was able to pull out the key points about the new productthat the sales engineers would need to know about and put some potentialqueries to the marketing people. Marketingwill put up a draft page so that a few chosen ones can comment before it goeslive to all sales engineers about the middle of next week. Getting feedback thisway is really fast. (By the way, when I said “met”, it was a virtual meeting. Ididn’t actually go to the office this week.)WednesdayLatestart. I had planned to spend the evening moderating a virtual seminar onsetting objectives in management and so I spent the morning hitting some golfballs up at the range. Inthe afternoon, I was on the telephone to three people who were a bit behind intheir studies. It is vital that you never let anyone get too far behind or theycannot then participate with any success in the discussions. Other people gettoo far ahead of them.Itturns out that one lives only an hour from my home, so I popped over there lateafternoon. We actually moderated the seminar together from his computer whichnot only ensured I did not miss my time but also, I think, motivated him to getgoing again on his learning. A good day.ThursdayAdelightfully “old-fashioned” day. A group of 20 sales people who had completedthe advanced selling skills course (and passed all the final tests) met at theBristol office and we did some role-plays. They knew what to do and thoughtthey would breeze it, but of course, but there is nothing like trying it out“live”’ and getting some feedback.Wehad a lunch together and everyone got to know each other a bit better which isimportant when you are on your own for many weeks at a time. Over lunch, I gottheir views on the programme, some suggestions for improvement and asked themto communicate with our e-learning provider.Inthe evening, I caught up with my own e-mail backlog and “chatted” to my boss.With me in Winchester and her living in Liverpool, we seldom meet, but we keepclose electronically.FridayIam playing golf because tomorrow is Saturday – always the busiest day. I willbe chatting to as many students as I can. First, I will be answering queriesand participating in a discussion on buyer types. Later, I will be moderate anexpert panel on critical path analysis for the development engineers.Finally,I will be reviewing some additional exercises on selling a product with a groupof students from Hong Kong. Since they are eight hours ahead of us, they willbe participating over breakfast while I will be in my dressing gown, ready togo to bed. It has to be done this week as the local consultant we use to runpractice and feedback sessions will be meeting them all in Sha Tin next week.
