The construction site is in the corner of an exclusive residential quarter where has a panoramic view of Hiroshima city. It is a renovation project for a 20 years old house to get remodeled into an RC structure luxury house with 2 above-ground floors and 1 basement. The construction work is implemented in tow stages. This time was the first stage to renovate a half of the total floor area of 495㎡ with the ground floor and the basement floor. In consideration of a structural balance, the building frames had to be remained.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe planning solution of what it could be done on that basis was found to think it to be skeleton. A main subject of this plan was how to work out negative elements such as low beams, a popped out passageway, different height of ceilings and so on. Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoWe titled the problem “Overhead Landscape” and tried it transferring into elements that induce a spatial phenomenon. Various colors, mirrors and lightings are installed so as to put unevenness parts to good use. Low beams gently divide spaces, a wrapped box the connecting passageway on the upper floor hided resonates with light, and a mirror placed in a hollow ceiling creates unlimited depth of space. A former plan separated into small spaces turned to a big connected space. Clear glasses and walls are divided by such as fringe curtains, etc. and it produces space continuity. To make dark space bright, using high reflection materials bring light to the inner of space. With all those measures, a phenomenon caused by “Overhead Landscape” projects on a floor screen. In result, it is uniformity space created as the finishing touch, but also heterogeneous space is thrown on the screen.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThis time’s construction work unifies with other public territory. In day times, time flows slowly with silence. At nightfall, floated night views bellow people’s eyes produce tense sense in interior space. We always aim at creating space, which stimulates sense of residents and guests. A purpose of use changes by a resident and at the same time the space changes. We are now proceeding the second stage plan of the private sections with infusing new breath into architecture and also aspiring to produce architecture beyond time.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessSolar Decathlon 2013: Stevens Institute of Technology Places Second in Architecture,…Selected ProjectsHow Much Do Architects Earn Around the World?Architecture News Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  Japan Architects: Future Studio Area Area of this architecture project Beam House / Future StudioSave this projectSaveBeam House / Future Studio Year:  ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeFuture StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHiroshimaBunzo OgawaHousesJapanPublished on October 18, 2013Cite: “Beam House / Future Studio” 18 Oct 2013.

Panel seeks unbundled rule

first_imgPanel seeks unbundled rule Panel seeks unbundled rule Senior EditorSaying it was beyond their scope to write it, a special committee is recommending to the Supreme Court that it direct the appropriate rules committee to draft a rule allowing unbundled legal services, including representation in court. The Special Committee on Unbundled Legal Services held its last meeting September 6 during the Bar’s General Meeting to hash out what its final recommendation should be to the Bar Board of Governors later this month. Unbundled services have generally been defined as allowing attorneys to perform specific tasks for pro se litigants, such as advising about court procedures, drafting specific documents, or appearing at a specific hearing, without taking on all aspects of a case. Another cited example would have a pro se litigant hiring an attorney on child support and representation issues in a divorce but handling other matters, such as property issues, alone. While committee members generally agreed that attorneys should be able to provide limited and specific help to clients, much of the discussion centered on whether that limited help should include appearing in courts. Committee members decided that it should. “This is a concept that will aid in the access to justice, particularly in the family law area,” said committee member Sally Kest. Committee member Richard West, a member of the Family Law Section executive council, made the motion that the committee recommend that the Supreme Court instruct the Family Law Rules Committee to draft a rule specifically allowing the delivery of limited and specific services. “Conceptually what I’m trying to do is let the Supreme Court put the pressure where the pressure should be,” he said. Members noted that the Family Law Section has endorsed and suggested a family law rule for unbundled services. They also said the court’s Family Law Rules Committee has taken the position a rule isn’t needed for out-of-court appearances, and a rule would be too problematic for court appearances. Committee members and Bar Counsel Tony Boggs, however, said allowing limited appearances in court would require changing the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. The Supreme Court’s Family Law Steering Committee has said it is an important issue that should be explored, but not their role to propose a rule change. West and Jeannie Etter, another Family Law Section member, both attended a recent conference on pro se and access issues in Arizona. They reported that Arizona, which has the only unbundled rule in the country, has found that rule allows improved access with no increase in ethical or malpractice complaints against lawyers. West also said there’s already a model in Florida in the Department of Revenue’s representation of parents in getting child support. He noted that the department attorneys may file a paternity action to get child support and the father will respond that he’ll pay, but only if visitation rights are granted. The department, West said, will say that their only concern is with support and other issues will have to be addressed separately. “I’ve always assumed that such a thing existed,” said committee member Austin Peele. “You could sign on for something other than a court appearance, you could contract with a client to provide a specific amount of legal services.” Committee members said there will be problems in working out a way to provide unbundled services. “Part of the problem in family law is the need to go into court with a client mainly on a custody issue, but if you go in, now you’re on the hook for all the financial issues as well,” Kest noted. West asked, “How do you get the lawyer to take on the responsibility for conducting or taking on a trial when they haven’t been responsible for the pretrial discovery and preparation?” Committee Chair and Bar Board of Governors member Sharon Langer said there are also questions about whether the court should be told if an attorney helps a pro se litigant prepare motions and other papers or helps coach the litigant. The committee unanimously approved the motion to recommend that a rule be drafted allowing unbundled services, including court appearances by lawyers. It will be presented to the Board of Governors at its October 19 meeting in Boca Raton. October 1, 2001 Gary Blankenship Senior Editor Regular Newslast_img read more

Berghuis putting friendship aside

first_img After missing Southampton’s 2-2 draw at Newcastle having ruptured his Achilles, Koeman returned to oversee his injury-stricken team’s 3-0 home defeat by Everton and a disappointing 1-1 Europa League draw with FC Midtjylland. Berghuis, a £4.6million summer signing from AZ Alkmaar, has previously encountered Koeman’s teams in the Eredivisie and admires him as both a player and manager. Frank, his father, who will soon join him as a coach at Watford, played alongside him for the Holland national team. Press Association “My dad played against him, played with him also, and I played a couple of times in Holland against his teams,” said Berghuis. “Everybody in Holland knows Ronald Koeman. Yeah [I liked him growing up] but he was also before my time, I was too young. It will be nice [facing him Sunday], the team he coaches is a good team. A little bit of Dutch influence, play the ball, keep the ball on the ground, have some creative players. “[My dad played for Holland in 1989] against Brazil. Not bad, right? I think the score was 1-0 Brazil. Ronald Koeman played in that game as well. I think [my father] was up against a fast defender who was attacking a lot. He just enjoyed it though.” Similarly to the Koemans – Ronald’s assistant at Southampton is his brother Erwin – Steven Berghuis’ younger brother Tristan is also a professional with Zwolle in Holland. The history between those involved in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League fixture also extends to Watford’s manager. Quique Sanchez Flores, who was succeeded at Valencia by Ronald Koeman, played against him for Real Madrid when the Dutchman was with Barcelona. “My father was a footballer, so I started playing when I was five years old,” Berghuis explained. “I was playing at amateur level until I was 17 and it was then I made the step up to be a professional. “[My father] let me play freely. He always supported me but wasn’t a critical coaching father. We talk about football but not like that, he is helping me, not mentioning Ronald Koeman. “Tristan is more of a midfielder but in the future I think he can play on the wing. He is still developing and hopefully he can make his debut for Zwolle. Watford winger Steven Berghuis takes on Ronald Koeman’s Southampton on Sunday in the knowledge he can extend the miserable start to the season of a family friend. “He was really good. He was one of the biggest talents in Holland. He had a tough time at PSV and Vitesse which is why he decided to join Zwolle, he has taken a step back in order to take a bigger step forward. “[The history between Koeman and Sanchez Flores has] not been mentioned here [at Watford]. “I think I’m ready to start a game [against Southampton, after illness] but I don’t know how long I could play. Now I work hard to get in shape.” last_img read more

Election night ends with surprise Trump victory over Clinton

first_imgRepublican presidential nominee Donald Trump won the 2016 election on Tuesday night, beating out Democrat Hillary Clinton in a narrow and largely unexpected victory.Of the 11 battleground states — Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin — nine went to Trump.There was a tense flip-flop between Trump and Clinton up until the last electoral votes came in. Bob Shrum, a political science professor at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and longtime political consultant, explained his concerns when Donald Trump gripped 244 electoral votes.“At the beginning of the day, they said it would take a miracle for Donald Trump to win,” Shrum said. “At this point it would take a miracle for Hillary Clinton to win. She is losing states Democrats almost always carry.”It was a miracle that never came.Near 11:30 p.m. PST, Trump was able to win the state of Wisconsin and garner 276 total electoral votes, six votes more than the necessary number to be president. Shortly afterward, Clinton called Trump to concede the election.The results garnered mixed feelings in students watching the votes come in.Doctoral student Erica Silva met the results with uneasiness, especially in contrast to the optimism expressed in the 2008 and 2012 elections.“My freshman year, we watched Obama win the election, and the mood on campus was one of joy and hope,” Silva said. “Right now I think that the mood here is one of despair, one of shock, one of disbelief. We’re not really sure what’s going on.”Conservative voices were also present. Diego Hernandez, a sophomore majoring in physics, said that he was overjoyed and relieved by the prospect of a Trump presidency.“I think it [is] a very trying time for Americans, so in a sense I’m a relieved that Hillary didn’t win, mainly because of Supreme Court nominations,” Hernandez said. “We need to keep a conservative majority on the court. I’m hoping [Trump] will be able to get the recipe of success right, but I think no matter what he does he will always be a step above Clinton.”Over the past several weeks, most major polls had predicted a Clinton victory. As of Tuesday morning, The New York Times gave Clinton an 84 percent chance of winning, though the Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak Poll stood out for its prediction of a Trump win.Students largely reflected this divide between the polling predictions and the actual results, expressing surprise and shock.“I did not expect this at all. I thought it would be a very easy win for Hillary,” said Thomas Demoner, a junior majoring in business administration with a concentration in cinematic arts. “I never really took Trump seriously. I’m a little embarrassed, [because] he’s definitely going to decay the country’s image.”Sophie Greensite, a junior majoring in economics, mirrored Demoner’s statements, especially in regard to the numerous swing states that Trump won.“I’m worried for our country,” Greensite said. “Trump just instills such a divisive rhetoric in people, and I don’t stand for anything that he says. I think that he’s only going to serve to further separate our nation.”Ted Steinberg, a junior majoring in policy, planning and development, said that he accepts the results of the election despite being taken aback by them.“I am shocked but also somewhat ashamed that I’m shocked,” Steinberg said. “We always hear that the polls aren’t 100 percent, and here we are trusting the polls a little too much, in part out of a cautious optimism that I guess came around and bit us.”Senate results were announced on Tuesday night as well, with Republicans winning 51 seats and Democrats winning 47, leaving a Republican majority. The House of Representatives also maintained its Republican majority, with 235 seats announced to the Democrats’ 185.Nitika Johri, a senior majoring in cognitive science, said that the advent of a Republican president coupled with a Republican majority in Congress was extremely concerning.“I’m feeling pretty disheartened and a little bit scared,” Johri said. “A Trump presidency is scary enough, but what’s scary to me is also having Republicans hold the House and the Senate and what is going to happen with the Supreme Court justices. I feel scared not only for myself as a colored female, but I feel scared for a lot of the people who have expressed interest in being Democrats or being progressive.”last_img read more
