Located on the beach of Xangri-lá, north coast of Rio Grande do Sul, the house Malibu H25 is located in a corner of 414sqm facing a small square with predominantly east sunlight. It is a 226sqm ground floor residence consisting of four suites, guest toilet, laundry area and social area with living and dining areas integrated into the kitchen. The needs program seeks to meet a family in which parents, grandparents, can get together with their children and grandchildren for the summer. Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThus, the project was designed to provide privacy and comfort to the residents while using vacations in which rest and recreation activities can occur simultaneously. For that, the intimate area of the dorms was conceived in a distinct wing from the social area resulting in an architectural party in “V” – also due to the geometry of the lot. At the center of this “V”, the social area opens onto a courtyard in direct confrontation with the street. In this patio, of north insolation, is positioned the garden with configuring the “space for the chimarrão of the afternoon” –typical tea of the gauchos. Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe house have parking space for two cars in open courtyard. It was designed to minimize the automotive emphasis of the space using windows that connect the place to the social area and can be used as a balcony. The apparent brick façade, earth-shingle shingled roof and solid wood pergola seeks to contribute to the space’s accommodation through the use of natural materials combined, drawing in simplicity on the aesthetic of Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie houses and the purity of the sections of Glenn Murcutt. Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe interiors of the house reinforce the intention to promote a cozy but also practical and informal environment, with the use of the apparent wood lining and cement floor that generate little reflective planes and atmosphere of rest / resting. Lighting and natural ventilation are provided by large spans in cross-planes predominantly east and north. The construction work, from the marking of the template to the delivery – equipped and decorated – lasted 9 months.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiProject gallerySee allShow lessSaxum Vineyard Equipment Barn / Clayton KorteSelected ProjectsOPEN CALL: Alshati Strip Mall – Dammam CityBuilt Projects & Masterplans Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932680/malibu-h25-house-integra-studio-arquitetura Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeÍntegra Studio ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBrazilPublished on January 31, 2020Cite: “Malibu H25 House / Íntegra Studio Arquitetura” [Casa Malibu H25 / Íntegra Studio Arquitetura] 30 Jan 2020.

Whereas NLSIU has claimed that its technological and proctoring processes have performed “to scale”, many students complained of login-related issues, verification issues, technical glitches, untimely submission of answers, etc.NLSIU has announced that students who faced technical difficulties during the exam may login to the admission portal and raise a query, latest by 12pm on September 13.There are complaints of rampant cheating during the exam which the AI-based human proctoring failed to detect. Photos of NLAT questions were allegedly circulated all over social media and some candidates claimed to have discussed the entire question paper with their friends, over messages during the exam. Some miscreants even run the entire test live via Zoom screen share. The examination for PG Course commenced at 6 PM. Terming it a “collective failure”, a law student from AMU disclosed that he constantly faced technical glitches during the exam. Further, there were multiple web-cam alert signals, that disturbed the candidates.A student from Campus Law Center, Delhi wrote on Twitter that he could not even see the question paper properly. “My test paper started at 06:46 p.m. and got automatically submitted at 06:50 p.m.” he wrote to the University.So far as the UG exam is concerned, it was held in three sessions. The first session of the exam commenced at 12.30 pm; the second session began at 2.15 pm and the third session started at 4.00 pm. NLSIU claimed that he UG exam recorded 94% overall attendance. Slot 1 A candidate, who was allotted the first slot, told LiveLaw that she was unable to appear for the examination as she could not proceed beyond the “Document Verification” page. She also claimed that the Help Desk set up by the University could not resolve her problem, despite numerous calls. “I had filled up the NLSIU (UG) Admission form to appear for NLAT 2020. I was allotted the 12:30pm time-slot. I’ve been sitting in front of my system since 11:55am and haven’t yet been able to login. For some reason the test process is not moving beyond the “document verification” page. I’ve called the help-desk number at least 15 times. Now, I’ve been instructed to contact the authorities from NLSIU as the person who has been listed as the point of contact is unable to help me,” she told. “NLAT 2020 has been an absolute disaster. I had my time at 12:00 and i waited till 12:30 after I uploaded my photo of me and the ID card. Didn’t get verified till now and I have given up hope. When I called the technical assistance no., they told me to call the University,” another student said. These statements were given three hours after the exam-start time and till then, the students had not received any satisfactory response from the authorities. Another student wrote to LiveLaw, informing that he got only 18 minutes time to write the examination, as he faced login issues. It may be noted that the exam duration stipulated by the University is of 45 minutes. “My slot was 12:30. I logged in by 12 and since then i was only shown the message of ‘waiting for verification’. I also contacted the authorities but nothing happened. My test started around 1:40 and in about 18 minutes the test got submitted automatically. I couldn’t even complete the test,” he told.Some students were unable to login because despite entering the login credentials provided by the University, the exam portal prompted that there were credentials were not verified. “My NLAT exam slot was 12:30-1:15. I couldn’t login into my exam. I had tried many times with the Application No. and Password which I had got on my mail. But still was not able to login. I have mailed the issue but got no response,” a student wrote miserably as she was unable to appear for the exam. Some students also complained that the NLAT server crashed numerous times during the exam, rendering it impossible to attempt any questions. Further, there was no spport forthcoming from the University’s end. Slot 2 For the second slot of UG exam, NLSIU informed that nearly 95% candidates had successfully logged in. However, students faced issues even after logging into the portal. Many complained that the exam was submitted automatically, much before the exam time concluded. Narrating his ‘disturbing experience’ of the NLAT 2020 a student wrote to LiveLaw thus: “The test began at 2:30 p.m. after I used a photo of my Aadhaar shot with my webcam as ID proof. Throughout the test, there were incessant prompts from the system to keep my face in the “camera zone”. It was as though these folks don’t understand that to do calculations on paper for a math question, you need to look at it! However, the disturbing prompts were not the biggest problem. At the 39th minute mark, in a 45 minute test, my paper was automatically submitted!! I had not clicked or hit any key to submit my paper. I was busy working out the questions. I was literally robbed of 6 full minutes of precious test time! I panicked and immediately wrote to the NLSIU email, asking for guidance and help. I don’t think I’ll be getting a response.” He also pointed out that the exam portal accepted his verification ID after numerous attempts, which made him panic even before the exam started. “Sir my exam was submitted due to system error from your side and then I have to restart my PC and my test was automatically submitted without even answering a single question. I had not even read the first question … My exam was in 2nd slot of 2:15,” another student wrote on Twitter. Slot 3 Similar problems were faced by students during the third session. A student reported that due to technical problems, she was able to login for NLAT only at 4:24 pm (whereas the exam commenced at 4pm). Further, her answers got submitted automatically at 4:57 pm, thus giving her only 30 minutes time to write the exam. Another student told that he was stuck on the verification page till 4.45 pm and thus, could not appear for the exam.”Today, I was given the 4-4:45 slot for the NLAT entrance for NLSIU, Bangalore UG admissions. I had uploaded my documents by 3:30. My internet connection worked at 100 mbps and was waiting for the verification to happen in time. I waited till 4 and called the tech support. Half of their contact numbers couldn’t be reached and the one who picked, told me to wait… My paper started at 4:17. Even while writing the exam I was constantly disturbed by their pop- ups and even got multiple calls regarding technical issues which didn’t arise once, during their mock assessment. As I was on my last passage, I was still left with six minutes but my paper got automatically submitted. I called my invigilator who told me that it was submitted by me, which wasn’t the case. He later called me and informed that all papers got submitted at 4:56 itself and blamed the technical support for my problems,” a student who contacted LiveLaw said. NLAT 2020 is a “home-based” online examination that uses a combination of AI-based and human proctoring.The decision of the premier law institute to conduct a separate admission test after backing out of CLAT has been challenged in the Supreme Court. On September 11, the Supreme Court said that it will examine the legality of the decision, and restrained NLSIU from publishing the results of NLAT and conducting admissions on its basis, while allowing it to hold the test on September 12. The matter will be considered again by the Court on September 16.It was on September 3 that the NLSIU issued the revised admission notification stating that it will not accept CLAT scores for admissions to the academic year 2020-21 and that the same will be based on the NLAT.Next Storylast_img read more

Cephalopod prey of the black-browed albatrossDiomedea melanophrys at South Georgia

first_imgRegurgitations were collected from 41 black-browed albatross adults feeding chicks at Bird Island (54°S 38°W), South Georgia in February 1986. The samples were sorted into recognisable food categories and weighed. Cephalopods were identified by means of the lower beak, or in some cases the gladius, and allometric equations were used to calculate mantle length and wet body weight represented by beaks. The samples contained 35.5%Euphausia superba, 30.9% cephalopods and 27.1% fish, by weight. A total of 21 samples contained recognisable cephalopod remains and 20 contained specimens that could be identified. In all, 50 cephalopod specimens, representing an estimated 6,866 g wet weight, were identified. The diet was dominated in terms of numbers, weight and percent occurrence by the ommastrephid squidMartialia hyadesi, and in most cases the entire squid was present with only partial digestion of the skin and arm armature. The cranchiid squidGaliteuthis glacialis was the only other cephalopod of numerical importance but no soft parts were present suggesting that, although significant in the diet of the adults, this species was not being fed to chicks. One specimen each ofGonatus antarcticus, Chiroteuthis sp.,Histioteuthis sp. B. and the octopodidPareledone polymorpha were also present. The cephalopod composition of the diet corresponded closely with a collection made 10 years earlier. The commonest species in the bird’s diet,M. hyadesi, has not been found in net and jig samples at South Georgia although it has been taken from the Antarctic Polar Frontal Zone to the west of the Island. The presence of almost complete, undigested, specimens ofM. hyadesi in the bird’s diet indicates that it occurs relatively close to South Georgia.M. hyadesi preys largely on myctophid fishes, which themselves prey on small zooplankters, so a significant component of the black-browed albatross diet depends on a food chain which largely by-passesE. superba.last_img read more

Gulf-based Royal Navy ships join Omani exercise Khunjar Hadd

first_img Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today Gulf-based Royal Navy ships join Omani exercise Khunjar Hadd View post tag: Oman View post tag: HMS Bangor Gulf-based Royal Navy ships join Omani exercise Khunjar Hadd March 6, 2018 Three of Britain’s five ships permanently based in the Gulf joined the Americans and French as guests of the sultanate for the 23rd iteration of Khunjar Hadd (‘Sharp Dagger’).Minehunters draw their daggers in Omani exercise which tests the ability of the Omani Navy to work with warships from other navies which regularly operate in the region.The RN and US Navy maintain a constant presence in Bahrain to keep the region’s sea lanes open, deter terrorism, clamp down on piracy and foster close relations with the nations and navies of the Gulf region.Cardigan Bay acts as a mother ship to all four Royal Navy minehunters in the Middle East.Two of them – HMS Bangor and Ledbury – joined her for Khunjar Hadd, comprising one-quarter of the international force mustered off the Omani coast.The hosts threw their patrol ships Al Dhafirah, Al Muazzar and Al Bat’nah into the mix, alongside the French destroyer, two US Coast Guard patrol boats and two fast coastal protection ships for the four-day workout.The exercise centered on a fictional scenario, taking place in the Gulf of Oman, in particular, the waters off the capital of Muscat which had been ‘mined’ and needed to be rendered safe to allow shipping to get in and out.Participants also faced threats in the air, threats on the sea, joint maneuvers, helping vessels in distress, communications between navies who speak four different languages.“I would say the biggest take away is learning the capabilities of our coalition forces,” Information Systems Technician 1st Class Lavashti Washington, communications officer on board fast patrol ship USS Hurricane, said.The exercise culminated with a simulated air attack on the entire naval force. The Chevalier Paul, as the task group’s air defense ship, protected the vessels.“It is always fantastic to visit Oman, and even more of a thrill to have had the opportunity to exercise with our close partners, the Royal Navy of Oman,” Lt Cdr David Armstrong, chief-of-staff of the RN mine warfare force in the Gulf, commented.“With the threat neutralized and the minehunter force having provided safe passage in and out of port, the exercise concluded having proven the ease with which the different nations can operate together,” he added.

Donald Trump Is Enjoying A Customary Post-Convention Polling Bounce

first_imgPHILADELPHIA – As we anticipated, Donald Trump is enjoying a customary post-convention polling bounce. So far, the boost appears to be modest but clear. Despite a messy RNC in Cleveland, the GOP ticket has surged across multiple polls in advance of the DNC here in Philly. Democrats, meanwhile, will gavel in their quadrennial confab in a state of chaos and disunity. The soon-to-be-ex party chairwoman was booed off the stage by her own state delegation, and Bernie Sanders delegates are openly discussing mounting a floor challenge against Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential pick. Will Trump’s gains create a deeper schism within the Democratic ranks (see? we never should have nominated this flawed woman!), or will the prospect of a Trump presidency pull the center-Left together (differences aside, he must be stopped)? We shall see. Either way, memo to the party that rigged the system to coronate one of the least liked and least trusted politicians of our time — Donald J. Trump has now seized a very slight national lead:Morning Consult also has Trump +4. It’s worth noting that the USC tracking poll, like Rasmussen, has been uncommonly kind to Trump. On the other hand, Reuters’ tracker has been especially unkind to him, and their latest (mid-RNC) numbers had him within low single digits — a major shift away from her. An additional data point to highlight is how in the CNN survey, Trump’s margin of advantage grows when Libertarian Gary Johnson is included; in CBS News’ findings, Johnson pulls equally from both major parties. The notion that Johnson acts as a disproportionately anti-GOP spoiler has been undermined by the polling over several months:The CBS battleground poll of 11 swing states was virtually unchanged from prior to Trump’s nominating convention. Hillary Clinton’s position remained exactly static, as the billionaire gained two points to take a razor-thin lead, well within the margin of error. It’s now 42/41 for The Donald:And here’s elections guru Nate Silver announcing that his unweighted electoral model has shifted dramatically to give Trump the edge:It’s virtually inevitable that the Clinton/Kaine ticket will garner a convention bump of its own, reshuffling the numbers by next week. But as of July 25, 2016, literally the most disliked presidential nominee in the history of American political polling is beating Hillary Rodham Clinton. Over to you, Associated Press:Hillary Clinton has a problem. Too many voters say they’re supporting her for a reason you’d never want printed on a campaign T-shirt: “I’m voting for the lesser of two evils.” It’s far from inspiring…Democrats and independent voters in the Philadelphia suburbs — a crucial area in a competitive state — expressed mixed feelings about Clinton in the days leading up to this week’s Democratic National Convention in their hometown. Like Trump, Clinton has her faithful followers. And like Trump, negative views of Clinton run deep, even among some supporters. Half of Clinton’s own backers say they consider her only slightly or not at all honest, and more than one-third say she’s only slightly or not at all likable, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll conducted this month. “I’m not excited,” said Matthew Mousley, 36, of Springfield, who nevertheless plans to support Clinton. “I guess, it’s just, I feel like there should be better options.” It’s a worry for Clinton’s top aides, who see maximizing Democratic turnout as a main campaign challenge.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
