The irregular-shaped plot of about 10.500 sqm stands on a slope facing southwest, where it is possible to observe the Algarve coast. The vegetation of carob, olive, mastic, and almond trees stands out, bringing us to the traditional Algarve mountains. In the central area of the property, coincident with the most inclined terrain, there is a small residential building with 100sqm. The traditional Algarve architecture, recognizable by the presence of well-defined volumes and some characteristic elements, such as the chimney or the roof terrace with decorated cornice.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe project reformulates the existing construction, placing in it all the social areas of the house (kitchen, living room, and dining room), in direct contact with the new outdoor leisure area. At a lower level, under this outdoor leisure area, a new volume holds the most private spaces of the house and its four bedrooms. By placing this new volume of about 150m2 of construction at a lower level, the goal is to achieve greater privacy in the bedrooms without visually blocking the views of the existing building to the Algarve coast, enhancing its privileged solar orientation. When enjoying social and outdoor spaces, the old house stands out while the new construction is not visible. All rooms are complemented by a small private patio that extends the indoor area to the outside, maintaining privacy.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraSave this picture!© Francisco NogueiraOn the road that runs from Estiramantens and develops towards the North, the main access to the house, it is possible to see the whole building, with the pre-existing house crowning the new and contemporary construction.

Press release: 7 years of conflict in Syria: Statement by International Development Secretary and Foreign Secretary

first_img Today the Syria crisis enters its eighth year. It has become one of the longest and bloodiest wars in recent history. The impact on Syrians, above all civilians, has been devastating with an estimated 400,000 dead and 13 million in need of humanitarian assistance. The Asad regime and those who back it bear overwhelming responsibility for the destruction of the country, its infrastructure and the lives of its people. Despite promises of de-escalation, the violence continues and the civilian death toll continues to rise. Last month the UK supported UN Security Council Resolution 2401 calling for a ceasefire. Yet in Eastern Ghouta – which Russia itself declared to be a de-escalation area – the regime, with Russian support, has continued to bombard and besiege the population, turning it into a hell on earth. Over 1,100 people are estimated to have been killed there since 18 February alone. We find it utterly abhorrent that the regime is using food and medical supplies as a weapon of war. Civilians continue to be deliberately and indiscriminately targeted by military strikes, and despite promises made by Russia to ensure Syria would abandon all of its chemical weapons in 2013, international investigators have confirmed that the regime has since used chemical weapons in four separate attacks – which Russia has gone to great lengths to conceal. The UK is committed to ensuring that all those responsible for chemical weapons use and other violations of international law in this conflict are held to account. The UK has always been at the forefront of the response to the crisis. More than 13 million people in Syria and in neighbouring countries are still in need of assistance. We will continue to help innocent people survive the toughest situations imaginable and, ultimately, help them to rebuild their lives. The suffering will only end when there is a political solution to the conflict. We will continue to use our position on the UN Security Council to pursue this, as well as to unlock humanitarian access and protect civilians. The UN is ready to mediate a settlement. The opposition have declared their readiness for negotiations without preconditions. But the regime continues to obstruct progress. The international community must commit to a ceasefire and a political process that ends this conflict for good. The International Development Secretary, Penny Mordaunt, and Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, have issued a statement to mark seven years of the Syria conflict.They said:last_img read more

A whole-family approach

first_imgFor the past six years, Harvard’s public school partnerships team has offered the Mind Matters: Families Make a Difference program to schools in Cambridge and Boston. The initiative draws from cutting-edge research to give families practical skills and understanding related to early childhood development. With a particular focus on children aged 3 to 9, the program provides families with resources to support kids emotionally, socially, and academically.Fletcher Maynard Academy (FMA) in Cambridge has been offering Mind Matters to its families since the 2016–17 school year. The Gazette sat down with principal Robin Harris to talk about the impact of the program at FMA.Q&ARobin HarrisGAZETTE: How important is family engagement to the success of students?HARRIS: I’m a true believer in family engagement. It’s incredibly important. First and foremost, it’s about the relationships that all of us have with the students we see every day. But it’s also about building and forging relationships with families and parents and guardians and grandparents and the extended families of our students. Because learning is a real partnership. We want to get to know the kids. What makes them tick? What gets them excited? What are the parents’ goals for their kids? Our teachers can see the difference that relationships make in the long run. But it’s also important to understand that family engagement can come in many different shapes. It’s how you define engagement. And it looks different to different people. But ultimately we’re all after the same goal: the success of our students.GAZETTE: How does Mind Matters fit into this model?HARRIS: I wish every single parent had Mind Matters. With Mind Matters we’re able to give parents really specific tools that they’re then able to utilize with their kids. We’re able to equip them with some of the knowledge and some of the research that’s out there about different things — such as brain development. As parents, sometimes you’re just flying by the seat of your pants. But now you’ve got an opportunity to really learn about some of the research, the why and the how behind some of the advice we hear so often. You’re learning the science — the proven research. You no longer have to simply just shoot from the hip. You’re learning best practices. Mind Matters is equipping our families with knowledge that they probably wouldn’t have gotten on their own, and it’s knowledge that can make a real difference in the lives of the students.GAZETTE: What has been some of the feedback that you’ve heard from participants?HARRIS: Families who’ve participated have learned a lot. And an added benefit is that this knowledge — these practices — really crosses socioeconomic lines. There is something in it for everybody, regardless of background. We have parents who have graduate degrees, and we have parents who don’t have high school diplomas — but who are both learning together about how best to help their children — because ultimately we all want our children to be happy and successful. It’s rewarding to see how many different families are taking advantage of the learning.One of the other residual effects of the workshops is that they create bonds and relationships among the parents.GAZETTE: What made you want to help bring Harvard’s Mind Matters program to other schools in the Cambridge Public Schools district?HARRIS: We found that a lot of our parents were talking at their kids, and not necessarily with their kids. Mind Matters gives parents different tools in which to have conversations with their kids. And it makes a difference because now interactions can become more than just directives. Now they’re having actual conversations with their child, engaging kids in some discourse. And that’s just a real mind shift for some folks. It helps parents realize that making time to be present and interact with their children is very, very important.After FMA first started participating in the Mind Matters program, we thought, “Oh my gosh, wouldn’t it be awesome if every parent had this opportunity? Why stop with us? Every school should do this. This is good, rich information.” So we started talking to our colleagues at their respective schools, and it just starting growing from there.Mind Matters is available in elementary schools in Cambridge, as well as in schools in Boston’s Allston-Brighton neighborhood.last_img read more

TRACK : Penney breaks Orange teammate’s mile record at Valentine’s Invitational

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on February 16, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Lauren Penney knew she accomplished something special the moment she crossed the finish line.‘I guess I had an idea at the half mile because it was well under any pace I had run before,’ Penney said. ‘But I didn’t know if I had slowed down until I crossed the line.’Penney didn’t slow down. Instead, she went fast enough to run herself into the record books. She set a new Syracuse track and field record for the fastest time in a mile at the Boston University Valentine’s Invitational last weekend. It took her 4:41.34 to complete the race.Penney started out in the back of the pack, where she usually likes to begin, and as the race went on, she finally found enough space to make her move to the front. Penney earned a third-place finish and a new SU record.The previous record belonged to her Orange teammate Heather Stephens, who set the mile record a year ago at the same meet.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAlthough it was the same meet, Penney doesn’t find it to be too ironic.‘It was just good timing when this meet falls compared to the workouts we do at this point in the season,’ Penney said.For Stephens, she expected her teammate to eventually surpass her. It was just a matter of time.‘She had put herself in a good position, and she’s been working out really, really well, so we were all ready for her to run a fast time,’ Stephens said. ‘The exciting part is that she’s ready to run even faster.’SU head coach Chris Fox, who didn’t realize at first it was a school record, said that was a time expected for Penney coming into the race. They planned on her going that fast, and that’s exactly what she did.Penney continues to meet and exceed expectations. She ranks No. 12 nationally in the 3K so far this season. That ranking is especially important because if Penney remains in that slot for two more weeks, she can qualify for NCAA indoor nationals.Fox said it would be a big deal for Syracuse because runners from SU usually don’t qualify for indoor nationals, as the focus is more on outdoor competition.Although Penney understands the importance of qualifying, she doesn’t try to put any added pressure on herself.‘I think a big part of success is staying relaxed. I try not to put too much pressure on it,’ Penney said. ‘If I stay relaxed, have fun with it and do what I’m supposed to, then I know I’ll accomplish my goal.’Orange preps for Big East meetThe Big East championship this weekend in Akron, Ohio, is one SU has marked off on its calendar. But instead of intensifying the training leading up to the meet, Fox has backed off on how hard he works his runners.Fox said all the runners have worked hard since Christmas, so he felt it was important to relax their training this week. In turn, he hopes they all would have fresh legs going into the weekend’s meet.‘We backed it off a little bit and hopefully they can run a little faster,’ Fox said.Long distance runner Tito Medrano said when the Big East championship comes around, it’s a ‘hiccup’ in the usual hardworking routine the team goes through on a week-by-week basis.Although the training has been lenient this week, Medrano knows this is a race the team has been working toward all season long. For the Orange runners who don’t qualify for Nationals, this is the pinnacle of the indoor season.‘This is the big one we all train for, this is the big one we all have our eyes on,’ Medrano said.Fox said the meet is a low-key one, and it is a checkpoint on where the team is at, especially with the outdoor season approaching in a couple months.Overall, SU hopes to improve on where it placed last year, with Louisville, Connecticut and Notre Dame as its toughest competition.Medrano said SU wants to make a couple more steps to earning as many possible points to triumph over other Big East schools.As for Fox, he keeps it in a simple perspective.‘We’re not the best track team in the Big East, and we’re not the worst,’ Fox said. ‘We’re just going to do as good as we can.’[email protected]last_img read more

Wheelchair golfer Terry is set to make history

first_img Derbyshire’s Terry Kirby is about to make history as the first wheelchair golfer to become a club captain, certainly in England and probably worldwide.Terry will take office at Tapton Park Golf Club, Chesterfield, in February, almost exactly 25 years after a tumour in his spinal cord cost him the use of his legs.“Then, I was thinking that’s it, I’ll never play golf again and it was a total change in my life. But 25 years later I’m captain of a golf club,” said the 63-year-old.He’s taking on the role as a golfer: “I have never been treated any different from anyone else within the club. When I first started some people thought they had to give concessions but I soon put a stop to that! I’m just treated as any other golfer. That’s how I want it.”He added: “I rock up and have a laugh and a joke and get the mickey taken out of me, just like anyone else.”But his story is both inspirational and highlights the work of the charity for wheelchairs golfers, the Handigolf Foundation,  which he chairs.Handigolf, which is supported by England Golf, not only organises competitions but hires buggies to wheelchair users who want to get back on the fairway, or take up golf.Terry came across Handigolf when his physiotherapist spotted a flyer for a taster day. He went along and four weeks later was playing in his first disability competition. He returned the next year and won it!Terry enjoys all aspects of the game, but particularly the competition. He’s held a handful of national disability titles and has been a European title runner-up.“There are other wheelchair sports,” says Terry. “But I always say golf is a sport for life, once you are into it, that’s it.“To be perfectly honest, golf has really kept me going. It’s been the mainstay of my life over the last 25 years.”He plays off a handicap of 26, saying “Not bad for one arm and sitting down!”Jamie Blair, England Golf Disability Manager, commented: “Congratulations to Terry and best wishes for a fantastic year as captain. It has been great to work with Terry over the past five years and see his passion for the game.“His captaincy will raise awareness of disability golf and the opportunities for people who previously played, but might have stopped due to injury or illness. Terry is proof that there is a way to adapt to make the game for all.”You can find out more about why Terry plays and how he plays on the England Golf YouTube channel https://youtu.be/Yjk6koHfbGITo find out about ways to return to golf please email [email protected] find a course near you use England Golf’s Find and Play service Tags: Disability Golf, Handigolf Foundation, Tapton park Golf Club, wheelchair golf 30 Jan 2019 Wheelchair golfer Terry is set to make history last_img read more

Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics August Employee of the…

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Mason General Hospital & Family of ClinicsThe medical equipment in a hospital system needs constant maintenance to ensure there are no disruptions in service.  Harold Kropaczewski, biomed technician for MGH&FC, is responsible for maintaining and troubleshooting any issues that arise with medical equipment that does not require an outside contract.  A vital part of the Hospital and Clinic infrastructure, Harold was named MGH&FC’s Employee of the Month for August by his peers.Harold Kropaczewski, biomed technician for MGH&FC, was chosen as August’s Employee of the Month“Harold is always helpful, knowledgeable and timely with this help,” said his nominator.  “He is a kind and professional go-to guy who has given us over 20 years of loyal service, and for that reason I had to nominate him.”Harold joined the maintenance staff at MGH in 1998, after serving 20 years as a Hospital Corpsman in the U.S. Navy.  He was at first a Fleet Marine Corpsman during sea duty, and then a Biomed Technician during shore duty, where he obtained a degree in Biomedical Technology from Regis University in Denver, CO.“I’ve always wanted to work in a small community where you can make good, close friends,” Harold said. “MGH is a great place that fulfills that for me.”Harold called himself a ‘military brat,’ born on base in Hanau, Germany (just outside of Frankfurt), where his father was stationed. Growing up with a military family background was second nature to Harold. He joined the Navy and following his sea duty was stationed at the Naval Hospital in Bremerton working as a biomed technician. He later moved off-base to the Shelton area, and in 1998 he decided to take his skills to a civilian health care setting and applied for work at Mason General Hospital.Harold is a busy, single guy very much involved with Navy outdoor recreational activities. He spends much of his personal time working as an outdoor recreation guide for the Navy’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department, taking Defense Dept. personnel and their families on river excursions by raft and kayak. His Navy training included an ACA (American Canoe Assoc.) course, Swift Water Rescue, Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Responder training, making him a well-qualified river tour guide.  When not busy maintaining the equipment at the Hospital and Clinics, you may find Harold on a Washington river guiding a boat tour or kayaking on Puget Sound.MGH&FC is approved by the Joint Commission and is a licensed and accredited acute care hospital with a level four emergency trauma designation.  MGH&FC now offers Virtual Care ‒ 24/7.  For more information on Virtual Care or to find a health care provider, go to www.MasonGeneral.com.last_img read more

Nelson Bantams overcome slow start to take two from Castlegar

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Bantam Reps shook off some holiday rust to grab two of three games from rival Castlegar in West Kootenay Minor Hockey League action during the weekend.After falling 5-4 to the Sunflower City squad Friday, the Reps outscored the opposition 17-6 to win the three-game set 2-1.“We had not played in a game since December 19th and seemed that the kids were simply rusty,” Nelson coach Jeff Hunt told The Nelson Daily. “That coupled with a lacklustre effort made us doomed to lose.”Trailing 3-2 after two periods, the Castlegar Reps scored twice in the third to eek out a one-goal victory, with Edward Lindsay netting the winner. “In fairness to Castlegar they competed hard and showed a lot of passion  — something that was missing on our team  — and deserved to win,” Hunt confessed.However, once Nelson shook off the rust, the Heritage City team showed who was boss. Nelson scored seven times in 40 minutes en route to the 9-4 shellacking Saturday. Sunday, Nelson once again jumped out to the early first period lead, scoring three times in the opening frame, to blast Castlegar 8-2.Nolan Percival and Brandon Sookro each scored twice to lead the Reps past Castlegar Sunday.Saturday, Percival had the hat trick while Sookro chipped in with a pair to pace the Nelson Reps.“Saturday and Sunday were quite different,” Hunt explaining the obvious. “We competed hard and we had great performances from key players . . . including most significantly Dylan Whiffen who doesn’t always hit the score sheet a great deal.“And our best offensive players were at their best.” “We also challenged Castlegar’s strong physical presence — emotionally and physically it was a dramatic shift from Friday,” Hunt added.The series win was especially important for the Reps as Castlegar stands in Nelson’s way to gaining a spot in the AA Provincials in Smithers.The playoffs begin February 7.This weekend Nelson entertains Spokane in a pair of games Friday, 6:30 p.m., and Saturday, 1:45 p.m. at the Civic Centre Arena.Sunday the Reps rekindle the rivalry in the Sunflower City, facing Castlegar at 2:30 p.m. in the Pioneer [email protected]last_img read more
