SzaboConstruction:Holzwerk HaroldCity:WelsCountry:AustriaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Kurt KuballText description provided by the architects. After the birth of their first daughter, the young family were taken by the idea of a single-family house in the countryside. In the wienerwald they found a little house in need of rehabilitation with a large garden. Prospective possibilities of enlargement were already investigated before buying the property. The lean budget required a high portion of own capital in order to take the first steps in renovating the old building and undertake thermal sanitation. Upon completion of sanitation, the second child had already been born, and thoughts regarding an annexe became more concrete. Also, the grandmother’s wish for a granny flat should be taken into consideration. Building regulations left little leeway regarding building density and height. In order to accommodate the entire spatial programme, developing a two-storey structure was mandatory. Save this picture!© Kurt KuballIllumination of the partly subterranean granny unit in the basement is guaranteed by a strip of windows adapted to the site characteristics. A free-standing sanitary core divides the open space into sleeping and living areas. The possibility of later converting the granny unit into a small doctor’s practice was taken into consideration during planning.Save this picture!© Kurt KuballInstead of the former treehouse, a wooden box floats above the ground floor which in the first development phase is intensively used by meanwhile three children as a large, 3.5m high playroom including a climbing wall, swing, and football goal. All installations have already been prepared for later partitionment into up to four separate rooms.Save this picture!© Kurt KuballThe basement including the cantilevered ceiling was done in site-mixed concrete. The wooden box was constructed with solid wood tiles and wainscoted on all sides including roof and soffit with diagonally running larchwood latches. Due to the complex geometry with its double mitre cut the grey-glazed latches were mounted by staff of the architectural practice and the principal themselves. The wooden latches are a dominant design element not only outside, but also as ceiling lining in the granny unit and wall panelling in the glass joint between the existing building and the new construction.Save this picture!© Kurt KuballInstead of the former gas calorific value heating, the whole building is now supplied with warm water and heating by an air heat pump. Apart from the high thermal standard, the long-term flexible and adaptable building makes a distinct contribution to sustainability.Save this picture!DiagramIn times of a rising number of single-person households, high divorce rates and single-parent families, this project is an example of how three generations can live together in one building in contemporary architecture. This is aided by the different room atmospheres on various levels of old and new building parts in order to fulfil the changing requirements of common areas and possibilities of retreat. The last extension for the time being was the realisation of a large treehouse with a rabbit hutch.Save this picture!© Kurt KuballProject gallerySee allShow lessPeter’s House / Craig Steely ArchitectureSelected ProjectsArchitects Rally to Save Moscow’s Historic Shukhov TowerArchitecture News Share Architects: Franz Architekten Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/486917/house-eichgraben-franz-architekten Clipboardlast_img read more

Alverno High School Starts New School Year with Increase in Enrollment

first_img Make a comment Community News The halls of Alverno High School are a little busier this year as Alverno is reporting an increase in enrollment over last year.We are thrilled, and grateful, to report that Alverno’s enrollment is up 7.75 percent from last school year. Alverno has made a number of improvements over the past few years and we are grateful that our local community has taken notice of these changes,” said Julia V. Fanara, Head of School. “As we continue to evolve and grow, we do so while maintaining the values and excellence that have been pivotal to Alverno High School for the past 55 years. The Class of 2015 had a 100 percent college acceptance rate and received more than $1.5 million in scholarships and financial aid; we currently boast 16 AP scholars, and more than half of the Class of 2019 was admitted to Alverno with honors from 25 different feeder schools. It is an exciting time to be a student at Alverno and we invite our community to learn more about the changes we have made.”Ms. Fanara attributes this enrollment increase to several factors. First, building on the school’s reputation for academic rigor and success, Alverno has added new Advanced Placement course offerings to the curriculum including AP Calculus BC, AP Chemistry, and AP U.S. Government and Politics. With these additions, Alverno now offers at least two AP courses in all core subjects. The standard curriculum has also been expanded to include ESL for International Students, Forensic Science, Independent Research in Engineering, and Speech and Debate. A total of four new faculty members, with advanced degrees in their fields, were added to the teaching staff to help bring these classes into the curriculum.In the spring of 2015, Alverno introduced three new merit scholarships: a Head’s Scholarship, a Board of Trustees’ Scholarship, and the Elizabeth Mahoney, IHM Memorial Scholarship, which help make an independent, Catholic, all-girls education more affordable for more families. A Legacy Scholarship has also been added, which will be awarded automatically to the daughters of Alverno High School alumnae, beginning with the Class of 2020, so that the Alverno tradition may continue in their family. Recognizing that private school education is a luxury for most families, particularly in a tough economy, Alverno has committed to offering more scholarship support to families than ever before. At Alverno, the saying is “If you think you can’t afford an all-girls, independent, Catholic education—then think again.”Finally, Alverno has made several updates to the campus including re-landscaping the areas around the property’s historic Villa and a complete renovation of the main terrace. Additionally, plans have been announced for the update of the school’s library to a Learning Technology Center, which will open in the fall of 2016. The updated space will provide students with updated technology and wireless access, a language lab, a soundproof meeting room for collaborative work, open spaces for quiet study, and contemporary, lap-top friendly furniture.For those interested in a progressive Catholic, independent college preparatory high school education for their daughter, enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year is open. For more information on Alverno High School, please contact Sara McCarthy ’05, Director of Admissions and Public Relations, at (626) 355-3463 x. 235 or visit www.alverno-hs.org.About Alverno High SchoolAlverno High School is a Catholic, private, college preparatory school for young women dedicated to preparing them to function in a society as informed, knowledgeable persons, who have the requisite skills to make and implement mature decisions about complex problems.

The said direction is given by the Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad in a PIL seeking more private hospitals in Delhi to treat COVID-19 patients. The Petitioner had also asked for a direction to be issued to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, as well as to the Health Department of the Delhi Government, for allowing more number of pathological laboratories in Delhi for testing suspected COVID-19 persons. The Petitioner had submitted that that as per the recent reports in the press, there are approximately 10,000 patients of COVID-19 in Delhi alone, but there are not enough hospitals for providing medical facilities to the citizens. It was further informed by the Petitioner that while the Delhi Government has allowed certain private hospitals and private labs to treat and test COVID19 patients, the numbers are not enough considering the spike in cases. Appearing for the Union of India, ASG Maninder Acharya informed the court that the Centre has framed norms for all the State Governments that are required to be followed for declaring a hospital as a COVID Hospital and ICMR has also laid down Guidelines for permitting private pathological laboratories to undertake tests for COVID-19 suspected persons. Ms Acharya further submitted that there are 13 Government pathological labs and 15 private labs in Delhi that are permitted to test COVID-19 suspected persons. Appearing for the Delhi Government, Mr Anuj Agarwal submitted that as per the revised Guidelines, very mild/pre-symptomatic patients can go into self-isolation if they have adequate facilities at their residence and only if serious signs or symptoms emerge as specified in the Guidelines, should the patient be taken to a hospital. Mr Agarwal further informed the court that the Delhi Government has designated 9 more private and 3 more government hospitals as facilities for treating COVID19 patients. At this point, the court disposed of the petition by noting that there’s no need to interfere in the present matter.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

The Bench of Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Saurabh Shyam Shamshery observed, “We do not find ourselves legally equipped to give any direction for Legislation of any enactment.” This observation came in a plea preferred by one Sunita Sharma and another seeking direction to the Principal Secretary, Law and Justice, Uttar Pradesh to introduce a Bill “Advocate Protection Act”. Dismissing the plea, the Court remarked, “The petitioners are desiring for a legislative function by this Court which is essentially a work of Legislature.” The writ petition, hence, was dismissed. It may be noted that the Apex Court in the matter of Supreme Court Employees’ Welfare Association v. Union of India and Another AIR 1990 SC 334 had held that no court can direct the legislature to enact a particular law. Similarly, in V.K. Naswa v. Home Secretary, Union of India and Others (2012) 2 SCC 542 , the Supreme Court had observed that it can not issue directions to the legislature directly or indirectly and any such directions if issued would be improper. In related news, the Supreme Court had, in October 2020, dismissed a lawyer’s plea seeking direction to Parliament to enact a law providing a uniform scheme of compensation for persons who are affected by violence and other tragedies. “No mandamus can be issued to Parliament as a legislating body to enact legislation”, said the bench comprising Justices D. Y. Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee. Likewise, in September 2019, the Supreme Court had dismissed a plea of Former Law Minister and Senior Advocate Dr. Ashwani Kumar, seeking a direction to Central Government to enact a stand alone comprehensive legislation against custodial torture.Case title – Sunita Sharma and another v.

Police make multiple arrests after 76 people overdose on K-2 at Connecticut park

first_imgWTNH-TV(NEW HAVEN, N.H.) — Connecticut police have made multiple arrests in connection with 76 overdose cases at a New Haven park.First responders found numerous people who appeared to have overdosed on the New Haven Green on Wednesday, with 25 of those overdoses occurring within a three-hour span in the morning and some four to six at a time, officials said.Seventy-one people suffering from apparent overdoses were transported to local hospitals from the New Haven Green, according Dave Hartman with New Haven Police.Another 5 people refused medical attention and were not in enough distress to be transported for treatment, he said.Three arrests have been made in the case, Hartman said, but officials cannot say for certain if all three arrested or just one of them are directly responsible for the overdoses. Their names have not been released and the investigation is ongoing, police said.Police believe all the overdoses are from K-2, also known as synthetic marijuana.The victims appeared to be suffering from a “multiple of signs and symptoms ranging from vomiting, hallucinating, high blood pressure, shallow breathing, semi-conscious and unconscious states,” Rick Fontana, director of the city’s Office of Emergency Operations, told ABC News. Two people had life-threatening symptoms, he added.“There have been a couple individuals that were certainly more sicker than others,” Fontana told reporters at a press conference Wednesday morning. “We are doing our best to get people to the hospital in the safest, most practical and efficient manner. We have no deaths reported.”New Haven Fire Chief John Alston Jr. said emergency crews were overwhelmed with “multiple” 911 calls about people who were experiencing overdose symptoms or were passed out on the New Haven Green just after 8 a.m. local time. First responders sprinted across the park from victim to victim as more calls came in.“Even while we were trying to return people to service, they were passing victims on the ground,” Alston told reporters.The overdoses were concentrated on the New Haven Green but because it’s now dark the incident is beginning to branch out to different parts of the city, where more people are being found, police said.Victims were given several doses of naloxone, an antidoe for narcotic overdoses, both on the scene and at the hospital.“It’s a nationwide problem,” Alston said of drug overdoses. “This is a problem that’s not going away.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
