Located in the city of Vale de Cambra, the Eira House was a challenge of rehabilitation with about 400m² of construction.Save this picture!ImplantationThe century old house that was badly degraded and needed a deep rehabilitation that would revive the memory of the original trait without forgetting the current needs. The owner wanted a housing where he could have a familiar and traditional enrironment, not forgetting his irreverent, creative side and where friends are always welcome.Save this picture!© Soraia OliveiraThis reabilitation is divided into 2 programming blocks. In the first, next to the entrance courtyard, we find an area, previously used as annexes and stables for the animals, transformed into a convivial zone, with a kitchen and dining room, a sanitary installation, and some compartments that keep the original trait and are of ephemeral use, as convivial.Save this picture!© Soraia OliveiraSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Soraia OliveiraThe second programming block is evident when climbing the ramp and we find the housekeeper home adorned with an old panniers and the green vineyards that reminds us the proximity to the mountains and nature.Save this picture!© Soraia OliveiraThis is the main intervention and most striking building , where we find the most private and intimate spaces. With dining room and kitchen, these are divides by an element that allows the visual permeability. The kitchen cupboard is the guard for the staircase that lead us to the second floor and also the support cupboard for the living room, is a continuous and connecting element between the spaces that gives it continuity and uniformity. The living room contains one of the elements added to the building, that most mark its shape, a reading area, which leaves the building and embraces nature. Then we found a room and a more private toilet.

Bahrain-based Royal Navy minehunters visit Qatar

first_img View post tag: Royal Navy View post tag: HMS Shoreham View post tag: HMS Brocklesby View post tag: Qatari Navy Photo: Photo: Royal Navy HMS Brocklesby and Shoreham, two of the UK’s Persian Gulf-based minehunters, sailed from Bahrain to Doha to give the Qatari Navy an insight into the Royal Navy’s work in the region.Joint training with the Qatari Emiri Naval Forces was conducted both in their base and then out in the gulf.The Qataris do not possess any minehunters in their fleet of more than 80 patrol craft, but they do possess divers.They plunged into the water with Brocklesby’s dive teams to carry out jetty searches. Brocklesby also welcomed 25 Qatari sailors on board for demonstrations of some of their equipment, such as the Seafox remote-controlled submersible device which finds, helps identify and finally destroys mines.After two days in port, the Brits sailed with two Qatari fast patrol boats for combined maneuvers, culminating in practice boarding operations with Qatari sailors bringing their Hurricane RIB rubber boat up to Brocklesby ready to clamber aboard for an inspection.Lieutenant Commander Paul Irving, Brocklesby’s commanding officer, said he and his crew had thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Qatar – and found it very useful.“My divers particularly enjoyed the opportunity to compare procedures for conducting an underwater search of a jetty with their Qatari counterparts during the force protection exercise which was especially practical,” he added.

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare WE NEED A LARGER TENTGavel Gamut by Jim RedwineWhen I was a child religion was clear to me. Other Christian denominations were okay, but mine was right. Jews and Muslims were not to be harmed, but needed to be saved. Pagans were to be treated paternally and atheists were to be pitied.Today I hear some religious leaders postulate their god is different from another’s god. I suppose if one professes a belief in Rah, Apollo, or Neptune this would make some sense. However, some religious pundits claiming Christianity set their god apart from the god of Jews and Muslims, many of whom think the same way.People of The Book, people who trace their faith back to Abraham who was born in what would be Iraq today, include Jews, Christians and Muslims. There are certainly many differences among these major religions and even differences within each religion. However, a belief that there is only one god is common to all.I have no brief for any faith. However, when People of the Book, that is, people who may believe the Torah or the Bible or the Quran, denigrate other Peoples of the Book, history teaches intolerance or even violence may result.During this Advent Season it might be worthwhile for those whose voices are listened to by vast numbers of believers in The Book, to look back to their common roots. This does not require a profession of faith in doctrines differing from one’s own. It only calls for a recognition of the rights of others to worship, or not, as they see fit.Such would be my Christmas wish.last_img read more

Speech: Investment and innovation crucial to modernising railway

first_imgGood afternoon.It’s a pleasure to be here.And a welcome opportunity to speak to you after my recent appointment as Rail Minister.I understand the responsibility that comes along with the job.Responsibility for a service that provides 1.7 billion passenger journeys a year.And for the equally vital rail freight sector that keeps our economy on the move.And I understand the pressures – the pressures that you face too.Of busy commuter trains on an over-stretched infrastructure.Of managing massive maintenance and upgrade projects.Of dealing with industrial action.And through it all, trying to provide a reliable service, day-in, day-out.So I know it’s tough.And I congratulate the industry for keeping things going during the recent spell of cold weather.But I also believe that today, the prospects for the railway are brighter than they have been for generations.However, we face 2 significant challenges.First, we have to deal with the consequences of long-term underinvestment and soaring demand.In the 35 years before privatisation 2 decades ago, passenger numbers fell by a third.But in the 20 years following privatisation, they doubled.Putting a significant burden on some of the most intensively used rail lines in Europe.We’re working hard to reverse decades of rail underinvestment.With the biggest rail programme since the Victorian era.One of the first decisions that the government had to take in 2010 – when the current Chancellor was Transport Secretary – was whether to approve the Civil Service’s recommendation to cancel Crossrail.Because the economy was in crisis, and the new line would require significant funding.We saw it differently.And today, as a result, the first Elizabeth Line test trains are running under the Thames and central London.We’ve rebuilt major stations in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Leeds and Reading.Every Northern and TransPennine Express train in the north of England is being replaced or refurbished.And of course we’re building HS2.Towards the end of last year we published our rail spending commitments for the period from 2019 to 2024.Total spending will be around £48 billion.Billions of pounds from franchise operators is also helping to renew train fleets, upgrade stations and transform services across the country.And that leads me to the second great challenge.Compared with other transport, the pace of innovation in rail is slow.Transport is now the most polluting sector of our economy.And while it is cleaner than other modes, rail cannot rest on its laurels.Rail emissions have increased in absolute terms.So it’s time the rail sector made a stronger commitment to cleaning up its act.Electrification of every last mile is unlikely to be the only or most cost effective way to do this.New bi-modes are a good bridging technology to other low emission futures.And in time, as battery technologies improve we expect to see the diesel engines in bi-modes replaced altogether.That’s why we need to continue developing battery technology for hybrid trains.And work towards the real prize which is to develop and introduce zero-carbon alternative-fuel trains to the network.I look forward with great interest to industry taking forward a hydrogen train trial in the next Control Period.Ushering in a new era in low carbon rail travel.So I have called on the railway to provide a vision for how it will decarbonise.Including the removal of diesel-only trains from the network by 2040.I am pleased that the industry has risen to this challenge by forming a task force to lead its response, and I look forward to my meeting with its Chair next week.Our ambitions must also go beyond the method of traction.I want industry to play its part in addressing the public’s very real concerns about air quality.The research which industry is leading into air quality at and around stations, is a good start.Now I want us to find new and innovative ways to tackle this blight.But innovation is not just about new technologies.We can also innovate by changing the way the railway is managed and run.This is still a fragmented industry.And this fragmentation has been a big factor in preventing the railway from focusing on the passenger.That’s why our Rail Strategy goes further than ever before to get private and public sector working more closely together.To end the operational divide between track and train.And to rebuild the railway around the customer.The railway also needs a much stronger regional focus, with integrated teams in place to sort out problems and manage local services.So the strategy sets out plans to reorganise Network Rail into a series of regional businesses.With greater autonomy and responsibility for local decision making.These are common sense changes.But they represent a radical reorganisation of the way the railway works.Joined up management.Simpler, more accountable structures.Regional teams whose whole focus is on the customer.So, to sum up.Privatisation brought a revolution to our railways, and turned round half a century of decline.Increased funding since 2010 – and well into the future – has turned round decades of underinvestment.Now it’s time for the next transformation.Modernising rail services and delivering HS2.Committing the industry to a carbon-free future.And uniting the railway in a relentless focus on the customer.Thank you.last_img read more

Harvard’s Center for Middle Eastern Studies Opens Field Office in Tunisia

first_imgThe Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES) at Harvard University today opened its first overseas office, in Tunisia, home to a tradition of learning and research that extends from Antiquity to the present. The office and the year-round programs run from the location are made possible by the support of Harvard College alumnus Hazem Ben-Gacem ’92.“The Middle East is a part of the world that you’ll never fully understand unless you get your feet on the ground and experience it first-hand,” said William Granara, CMES Director and Professor of Arabic. “Thanks to Hazem’s generosity, Harvard students and scholars have greater resources to pursue in-depth field research and can more substantively engage in language and cultural immersion experiences.”Center for Middle Eastern Studies Winter Session study excursion to Tunisia, January 2016“From the beginning the hope has been to establish an outpost where Harvard faculty and students would come to discover Tunisia—its history, language, culture, art, and people—and integrate this experience into their scholarship and education,” said Ben-Gacem. “I’m very excited by this first step towards a substantial Harvard presence in Tunisia.”Founded in 1954, CMES, through interdisciplinary teaching and research, has produced hundreds of graduates with Middle East and North Africa expertise who have gone on to directly impact students, scholars, and the public both in the United States and around the world. Its Tunisia office will provide students and scholars with a bridge to renowned Tunisian archival facilities, serve as an incubator for analysis of the evolving social, cultural, legal, and political movements in the region, and offer an intellectual hub for scholars of, and from, Tunisia, the Maghreb, the Mediterranean, and the wider Middle East region.“Broadening the contexts in which teaching and learning happen at Harvard is a crucial element of our engagement with the world. We are always seeking opportunities to make the University more intentionally global, and the field office in Tunisia will bring the world to Harvard and Harvard to the world in exciting new ways that will shape important work across fields and disciplines,” said Harvard president Drew Faust.Programs available at the Tunis location for students and faculty from across the University include Harvard Tunisia Scholarships for Harvard graduate and undergraduate research, funding for Harvard faculty sabbatical research, an Arabic language summer program for Harvard graduate and undergraduate students, and a three-week Winter Session course for Harvard students.last_img read more
