The dnA house is located on a left over plot in the centre of Asse, at 400m from the railway station, with a direct connection to Brussels. The house also contains a home office. The cross shaped footprint is oriented towards the sun and following the natural slope on the terrain, which results in a ca 45° rotation towards the street. The ground floor level bypasses the slope in three steps. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertFor this house we were inspired by the numerous renovations we did of houses with a typical structure made of brick walls and wooden beam floors. These structures are very receptive to transformations in the plan, but they are not so smart when it comes to improving the energy performance (adding insulation, improving airtightness, …). Therfore we wanted to design an “intelligent ruin”, a structure that marks the urbanistic outline of the house, a house where you can always go back to the basic space and form and that can be redesigned from the inside. Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe house consists of two structures with a clear hierarchy. The outer structure is a highly durable outline made in brick walls (re-used) with a flat roof; an empty 2 storeys high space. All the structural elements that were needed to make this structure completely autonomous are articulated on the outside of the walls. This results in a graphic composition of the facades that shows the structural logics of the building, as wel as a perfectly flat surface on the inside of the walls in order to avoid complex details when filling in the interior space. The inner structure is a box in the box construction, a light timber frame construction, well insulated and air tight. This structure is removable, adaptable and receptive to transformations in time. The outline of the inner box does not copy that of the outer structure. A patio in one part of the cross creates the visibility of the brick wall from the interior.

Court mulling whether to reinstate 3rd-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin in George Floyd’s death

first_imgCourtesy Ben Crump LawBY: BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC NEWS(MINNEAPOLIS) — The Minnesota Court of Appeals is deciding whether to reinstate a third-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer set to go on trial next week in the death of George Floyd.During a virtual hearing on Monday, a prosecutor from Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison’s office argued that the district court judge presiding over Chauvin’s case “abused his discretion” by dropping the charge.Chauvin, who did not attend Monday’s hearing, is currently facing charges of second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the May 25 death of Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man.“We will … issue an expedited decision as soon as possible, appreciating that the trial in this matter is supposed to start one week from today,” Appellate Judge Michelle A. Larkin said at the close of the hearing.Chauvin, 44, is being tried separately from three other former officers involved in Floyd’s death. J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao are charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and manslaughter and are scheduled to go on trial in August.Cellphone video showed Chauvin digging his knee into the back of Floyd’s neck for a prolonged period as Kueng and Lane held the handcuffed man down in a prone position as he repeatedly cried out, “I can’t breathe.”Thao is accused of standing by and keeping witnesses at bay.Floyd went unconscious during the incident and was later pronounced dead at a hospital.Hennepin County District Court Judge Peter Cahill, who is presiding over Chauvin’s case, dismissed the third-degree murder charge in October last year, ruling that it required evidence that Chauvin’s alleged actions put multiple people at risk and resulted in a death. Cahill ruled that since Chauvin is accused of only targeting Floyd, the count did not apply to his case.During Monday’s hearing, prosecutor Neal Katyal cited a Feb. 1 ruling by the Minnesota Court of Appeals upholding a third-degree murder conviction against former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor in the 2017 fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond after she called 911 to report an assault in progress near her home.Following the Court of Appeals ruling in Noor’s case, prosecutors asked Cahill to reconsider the third-degree charge against Chauvin. Cahill denied the request.Chauvin’s lawyer Eric Nelson argued on Monday that Cahill’s ruling should stand because the Appeals Court decision in Noor’s case should not be considered a legally binding precedent because Noor has 60 to 90 days to appeal to the state Supreme Court.Nelson argued that if Chauvin were convicted of third-degree murder and the Noor case was overturned, he could appeal, “but he would have to do it from the confines of a prison cell.”Larkin responded, “When the Supreme Court does grant review of our cases, it typically does not vacate our decision or issue any order limiting that decision.”“All of these rules and the lack of any statement that a precedential opinion is anything but immediately effective in terms of precedential authority are causing me to question your assertion that the rules support ignoring precedential decisions of this court until such time as to seek review has expired, the Supreme Court denies review or the Supreme Court takes review and issues a different decision,” Larkin told Nelson.Katyal said that it could take the Supreme Court up to a year to review a case. He noted that there are three other former officers charged in the death of Floyd and their trial could occur “very possibly when Noor is over and left intact.”“That would mean third-degree murder charges could be brought against those three officers just because of timing,” Katyal said. “Everything about our legal system rebels against that notion … in Minnesota and any jurisdiction with which we’re familiar.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Characterization of glycoprotein antifreeze biosynthesis in isolated hepatocytes from Pagothenia borchgrevinki

first_imgIncorporation of 14C‐leucine and 3H‐alanine into TCA‐precipitable protein, TCA‐soluble protein, and antifreeze glycoproteins (AFGP) was measured in isolated hepatocytes from Pagothenia borchgrevinki Boulenger following acclimation to −1.5°C and + 4°C. The rate of 3H‐alanine incorporation into AFGP followed Michaelis‐Menten kinetics with a Vmax of 4.8 nM·mg protein−1·h−1 at −1.5°C and 7.5 nM·mg protein−1·h−1 at + 4°C. Km values were 27.8 μM and 41.7 μM at −1.5°C and + 4°C, respectively. Incorporation of 14C‐leucine into TCA‐precipitable protein also showed Michaelis‐Menten kinetics with a Vmax of 20 nM·mg protein −1·hr−1 at −1.5°C and 32.3 nM·mg protein −1·hr−1 at + 4°C. Km values were 83.3 μM at −1.5°C and 125 μM at + 4°C. AFGP synthesis was monitored over a 120‐h period by radioimmunoassay in cultures of hepatocyes from cold acclimated fish (− 1.5°C) incubated at both − 1.5°C and + 4°C. The estimated Q10 for AFGP from these data is 3.23. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of antifreeze glycoproteins produced by isolated hepatocytes showed that all four antifreeze fractions normally present in the serum of P. borchgrevinki are also synthesized by isolated hepatocytes. The two major conclusions from these experiments were that 1) P. borchgrevinki, unlike many northern fishes, does not show thermal acclimation, and 2) environmental factors responsible for modification of peptide antifreeze synthesis in northern fishes do not elicit changes in AFGP synthesis in P. borchgrevinki.last_img read more

Bean scores 18, No. 17 Utah State routs Weber State 89-34

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah (AP) — Justin Bean had 18 points and nine rebounds, and Sam Merrill added 14 points, six rebounds, and six assists as No. 17 Utah State beat rival Weber State 89-34 on Friday night.Abel Porter added 10 points and 10 assists for his first career double-double. Diogo Brito scored 12 points. The Aggies (2-0) beat the Wildcats for the second straight season.Weber State (0-1) scored the fewest points by an opponent in Logan since 2013. Donatas Kupsas scored 10 points to lead the Wildcats.Each team played without its top player. Utah State center Neemia Queta was sidelined for a second straight game while continuing to rehab a knee injury. Weber State guard Jerrick Harding, the team’s leading scorer a season ago, sat out with a foot injury.Things spiraled out control for Weber State a few minutes into the game.After taking a 6-4 lead on a 3-pointer by Israel Barnes, the Wildcats went 11 ½ minutes without making a basket. Weber State missed 10 straight shots and turned the ball over seven times in that stretch.That allowed Utah State to pull away, and the Aggies did it in commanding fashion.The Aggies used a 20-2 run — capped by a second-chance dunk by Kuba Karwowski — to race to a 24-8 lead. After Kupsas hit a 3-pointer to break Weber State’s lengthy shooting drought, Utah State mounted another overwhelming run before halftime.Merrill drained a 3-pointer and Bean converted traditional three-point plays over three straight possessions to spark a 27-2 run by the Aggies. Merrill capped the run with another 3-pointer on Utah State’s first possession of the second half, giving the Aggies a 51-13 lead.BIG PICTUREWeber State: Without their leading scorer, the Wildcats were rudderless on offense. They shot just 10 of 46 from the field and endured a flurry of turnovers that contributed to the blowout.Utah State: Relentless defensive pressure and crashing the boards helped the Aggies run away from the Wildcats before halftime. Utah State ultimately finished with a 44-27 advantage on rebounds and forced 19 turnovers. The Aggies outscored Weber State 48-8 in the paint, 19-4 in second-chance points, and 23-1 in points off turnovers.UP NEXTWeber State: Hosts San Diego on Thursday.Utah State: Hosts Denver on Tuesday.

Letting agent accused in court over deaths of two young boys in house blaze

first_imgThe death of two young brothers in a house fire has been blamed on a letting agent who had repeatedly refused to fit smoke alarms at a rented house in Huddersfield (picture, above) a court heard yesterday.It is alleged that 51-year-old property manager Kamal Bains, who at the time was the sole director of Huddersfield-based letting agency Prime Property Estates Yorkshire Ltd, had been asked by the couple, who had been renting the house since 2015, to fit the alarms but had failed to do so.Pic credit: ITVIt was also found that Bains (pictured, left) had failed to fit smoke alarms at many of the other 140 properties his company managed in and around Huddersfield, the court heard.The deaths took place in February 2016 when parent Emma Taylor put two of her children to bed upstairs in the property for an afternoon nap, putting on a TV in the children’s bedroom to help them get to sleep.An electrical fault in the television then began a fire but before she noticed something was wrong, a significant blaze had broken out and, despite help from neighbours, the smoke and flames beat them back. The two boys, aged two and three years old, died of smoke inhalation.In court Allan Compton, prosecuting, described Bains’s failure to fit smoke alarms within the property – which has been a legal requirement since 2015 – as “inexcusable”. Bains had permission to spend up to £150 on repairs and maintenance without reference to the landlord.‘Fobbed me off’“He didn’t really seem bothered. As long as he got his rent money, he was happy for me to live like that with my kids,” Emma Taylor told the court. “He just fobbed me off.”Bains, who claims he fitted alarms to the property but that the couple removed them, denies two counts of manslaughter by gross negligence and failing to discharge an employer’s duty.Tests carried out on the property showed that if a smoke detector had been fitted, the mother would have had six minutes to save her sons.The business operated by Bains (pictured, right) has since been dissolved and an agent of a different name is now operating at its former premises.

US Navy Aircrew Involves Into Action to Help Rescue 68 People

Minutes after arriving, the crew spotted a drifting raft and contacted a civilian merchant vessel, the M/V Sunfish, to render assistance. M/V Sunfish found the raft was empty, while the U.S. Navy aircrew continued their search.Now, flying in the dark skies over the Mediterranean, the crew found another raft drifting in the open water. The rubber raft had 68 men, women, children of Somali origin, packed aboard the vessel with no shelter from the wind, water, or chilling temperatures.The VP-47 aircrew immediately deployed relief supplies of water, food, and flashlights to the stricken raft, and searched for other vessels in the area that could immediately render assistance. The Panamanian-flagged M/V Verona, over 60 miles away, responded and made its way toward the raft. Meanwhile, the P-3 crew remained in the area above the raft, reassuring its passengers that help was on the way.Finally, just before 1 a.m. today, the M/V Verona rendezvoused with the raft, taking all 68 passengers on board. Once all 68 passengers were safely on board the merchant vessel, and arrangements made to transfer the migrants to dry land, P-3 aircrew returned to their Sigonella air field, after an 11-hour mission.The U.S. Navy has a long history of rendering assistance at sea. The quick response and assistance provided by the Navy aircrew is in keeping with the traditions of our Naval service.U.S. 6th Fleet headquarters is located in Naples, Italy, and conducts a full range or maritime security operations and theater security cooperation missions in concert with coalition, joint, interagency and other parties in order to advance security and stability in Europe and Africa.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 17, 2012; Image: navy Share this article View post tag: europecenter_img View post tag: people View post tag: Navy View post tag: Help View post tag: involves January 17, 2012 View post tag: £68 View post tag: Aircrewlast_img read more

Press release: Eighth month of UK wage growth with disabled employment at record high

first_img Once again, the benefits of a strong jobs market are paying off, with the eighth month of real-terms wage growth for UK workers and the highest regular pay growth in almost a decade. With more people now in work than ever before and unemployment almost halving since 2010, we are delivering an economy that gives people the opportunity of a better future. And it’s worth noting that of the over 3.3 million jobs created in the British economy since 2010, three quarters are permanent, full time and in higher level occupations. Scotland (local media enquiries) 0131 310 1122 As the UK celebrates its first ever ‘Purple Tuesday’ highlighting the huge potential of disabled consumers’ £249bn spending power, new figures show more than half of disabled people are now in work, outnumbering those who are workless.In a further boost to the economy and consumer spending, wage growth outpaced inflation for an eighth month in a row, rising 0.9% in real terms (against CPIH inflation). Regular pay before inflation grew at its fastest in almost a decade, 3.2%.The UK’s unemployment rate has also nearly halved since 2010, now at 4.1%. backing businesses to create good jobs with our modern Industrial Strategy, while ensuring they play by the rules, so we are closing tax loopholes, strengthening workers’ rights, and tightening the rules big businesses must follow investing in the infrastructure, training and apprenticeships we need for our future, with public investment at the highest sustained level in 40 years introducing Universal Credit which is helping people move into work faster and stay in it longer, while recent Budget measures mean 2.4 million families will keep an extra £630 per year of what they earn helping people stay in work longer with our Fuller Working Lives strategy, which supports employers to recruit, re-train and retain older workers tackling inequalities in employment highlighted by the Race Disparity Audit, through targeted support in 20 areas around the country and £90 million announced by the Prime Minister to help young people arranging work experience sessions for students through Jobcentre Plus, in over 1,400 schools The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics also revealed the employment rate remains high, at 75.5%, with a record number of people in employment – and over 3.3 million more people in work since 2010.Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey said: Figures also show three quarters of jobs created since 2010 are full time, permanent roles that are in higher skilled occupations, which typically bring higher earnings – all ambitions of the government’s Industrial Strategy which seeks to create better, well-paying jobs fit for the future.This month also marked the anniversary of the anniversary of the Disability Confident scheme, which helps to transform business attitudes across the country and make our workplaces more inclusive. Over 9,000 businesses have signed up so far.The government is helping even more people benefit from a well-paid job by: Employment Minister Alok Sharma said: The work experience scheme is being rolled out across the country, to ensure young disadvantaged kids aged 12 to18 get opportunities including work experience to learn about the world of work and consider future career options. So far, the partnership between Jobcentre Plus and local schools has resulted in around 12,000 sessions for pupils, parents and teachers helping to prepare pupils for the world of work.
