INITIAL SITUATION_Münster – a small town in the Valais canton, surrounded by an impressive mountain panorama and characterized by centuries-old wooden log houses. New buildings stand out with their atypical proportions, huge balconies, attached garages and fake corner joints. They don’t comply with the tradition of the truthfully constructed wooden buildings. Due to this insensitive approach and the missing willingness to apply the traditional craftsmanship, they seem misplaced within the generic historical cluster of the village. Save this picture!SectionPROJECT SITE_The building is located at the edge of the village Münster. The ground floor is made of concrete and works as a base that carries the two-story wooden construction. Featuring split-levels, the building makes use of the sloping terrain while earth movements can be reduced to an absolute minimum. Surrounded by the typical local meadows, a narrow cobblestone path leads from the road to the western entrance, the southwest-facing patio and the southern entrance. During the winter months, one can step straight on the adjacent ski slope from here. Save this picture!© Markus KächMATERIAL_ The character of the log building method is determined by structure and materiality. The log structure itself is made of larch wood. It is more noble and resistant than spruce wood. Larch wood is also used for the windows and most of the built-ins. The log walls penetrating the inside of the building are visible at all times. The internally insulated outer walls are clad and covered with Pushkin green loam rendering. A shadow gap along the upper edge of the plastered surfaces clearly reveals their non-structural character. Save this picture!© Markus KächSPATIAL CONCEPT_ When using the log building method, the inside of a building automatically becomes a cluster of chambers. Scaling them horizontally according to their function generates two main rooms and two ancillary rooms instead of four equally sized rooms. The smaller ancillary rooms absorb both entrance areas, the stairwell, the kitchen and the bathroom. Different ceiling heights create a vertical differentiation of the rooms that can be perceived throughout the entire building and is reminiscent of Loos’ Raumplan. This spatial interplay also clearly shows in the facades of the building. The southern entrance leads into the ground floor which consists of guest room, guest bath and technical room. The western entrance is located at an intermediate landing. A short stair is leading to the spacious dining room featuring a high-ceilinged kitchen. The raised living area can be reached by climbing two more steps. The same difference in level can be found on the third floor between the two bedrooms and the shared bath room. Save this picture!© Markus KächSUSTAINABILITY_Thanks to the extraction of thermal heat from the ground, no fossil energy is used for heat production. The renewable construction material wood reduces the amount of grey energy and thus decisively minimizes the ecological footprint of the building. In addition to that, returning to the log building method preserves, revives and promotes a traditional local craftsmanship.

Lawsuit Hangs over LBDI for ‘Facilitating Illegal Withdrawal’

first_imgLawyers representing aggrieved members of the Liberia Scrap Association (LSA) are gathering documentary evidences to bring charges against the Liberia Bank for Development Investment (LBID) for allegedly facilitating LSA president Aylmer Johnson to withdraw US$7,400 from the entity’s account at the bank without authorization.The alleged withdrawal was based on an order dated October 23, 2014, issued by then Presiding Judge Emery Paye of the Civil Law Court at the Temple of Justice after the judge ruled in favor of Johnson, declaring him as the duly elected president of the association as contained in the court record.In that ruling, Judge Paye mandated LSA former leadership to immediately turn over all assets in their possession for Johnson to become the new signatory to the association’s account at LBDI. The judge’s decision was challenged by the LSA legal team, which also announced an appeal to the Supreme Court by the former officials.The announcement of the appeal restricted the enforcement of Judge Paye’s order pending the outcome of the Supreme Court decision into the matter.But immediately after Judge Paye knew that his decision was already under appeal, he reversed the decision after three days on October 26, 2014, on the basis that the case was before the Supreme Court, according to document.Based on that order, Johnson on October 30, 2014, allegedly proceeded to the bank and was assisted by a staff to fill out the LBDI checking account signature card, ignoring the October 26, 2014 order when Judge Paye placed a stay order on his previous decision.According to the document, Johnson allegedly used the original order to become the signatory to the association’s accounts and subsequently withdrawing US$7,400, thereby leaving a balance of US$200 in a period of three months.His first alleged withdrawal was done on October 31, 2014, in the amount of US$5,000.On November 1, 2014, Johnson made a second withdrawal in the amount of US$2,000. He lastly withdrew the amount of US$400 on November 27, 2014, leaving a balance, after monthly bank service charges, of negative US$183.The case started in 2013 when Johnson was elected president of LSA, but the defunct election commission refused to recognize his victory, which prompted him to file a “Motion for Declaratory Judgment” against the commission to the Civil Law Court.Johnson argued that the former leadership had prevented him from assuming the post of president, although he was certificated and inducted into office.It was based on the complaint that Judge Paye ruled in favor of Johnson, which the former LSA officials rejected and announced an appeal before the Supreme Court, prompting the judge to reverse the previous decision.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Ateneo shoots for UAAP crown

We need to make better decisions (in Game 2),” said La Salle guard Aljun Melecio, who had 24 points in Game 1.The Eagles, though, are already bracing for the mighty comeback from the Archers.“They’re the favorites, they’re the defending champs, and for sure they’re going to come out next game motivated, with adjustments,” said Ateneo assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga. MOST READ It all sets up for another heated and physical battle between collegiate basketball’s fiercest rivals in Game 2 on Wednesday as the series shifts to the Smart Araneta Coliseum, where the Archers have already beaten the Eagles this season.“It’s the second battle of a long war,” said Ateneo coach Tab Baldwin. “We anticipate a physical game. You get that all the time with La Salle. La Salle won’t be any different in Game 2.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBaldwin has already accused the Archers of “pushing the rules to the limit” after the series opener that saw the Eagles prevail, 76-70.“It would be silly to think otherwise because they’re good at it,” said Baldwin, referring to the Archers’ physical play. “They push the rules to the limit, the referees to the limit.” Asian shares slide on weak Japan data; US markets closed 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communities Local aces bare plans on how to tame Luisita On the cusp of punctuating their magical run with a crown, the Ateneo Blue Eagles insist their mission is far from finished, aware of the Herculean task of toppling the reigning champions.With their backs against the wall, the La Salle Green Archers remain defiant, confident they can send the UAAP Season 80 best-of-three championship series to a deciding game.ADVERTISEMENT BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq Ateneo guard Matt Nieto actually sustained a nasty cut over his left eye after getting hit by an inadvertent Ben Mbala elbow in the second period. But the play proved telling as it pumped up the Eagles, particularly Mike Nieto, who sparked the second half surge that propelled Ateneo.The Archers were held scoreless in the last two and a half minutes of Game 1, with reigning Most Valuable Player Ben Mbala typifying their struggles with a career-low eight points on just seven shots.“We have to stick to our game plan,” said Mbala. “If coach has a perfect and splendid game plan for us, we just have to stick to the game plan and play together as a team. And we got outrebounded in Game 1 and that is something that shouldn’t happen, we are one of the best rebounding teams in the league, and we gotta be able to do what we do best and that is rebounding, and run and gun.The Archers aren’t about to surrender their crown just yet.“We’re the defending champions,” said La Salle skipper Kib Montalbo. “I couldn’t consider our team as the underdog.

Justin Langer to head Australia’s selection panel to pick Twenty20 team

first_imgCricket Australia on Friday given an added responsibility to head coach Justin Langer and he will now also lead the selection panel to pick the Twenty20 team.Langer has replaced Mark Waugh, who resigned in May, and will join Trevor Hohns and Greg Chappell in the selection panel. Hohns remains the chairman of selectors for the Test and one-day international teams.Former international batsman Waugh had previously been assisted by former head coach Darren Lehmann in selecting the Twenty20 team.”We believe the changes to the structure of the selection process will deliver the best possible result for the Australian men’s cricket team across all formats,” CA high performance manager Pat Howard said.”Having a selector focus on the T20 format for the past 18 months was viewed as a success, particularly as we now sit third in ICC rankings in this format, and we will look to continue this in a slightly modified way.”This sees Justin take on additional responsibility as both the head coach and lead selector in Twenty20 cricket, as we build towards the ICC World T20 in Australia in 2020.”Howard added that the state associations’ talent managers and Big Bash League coaches would also feed into the selection process.The team’s next Twenty20 series is away against world number one Pakistan in October.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

11 days agoLeicester goalkeeper Schmeichel proud to reach 50 caps with Denmark

first_imgLeicester goalkeeper Schmeichel proud to reach 50 caps with Denmarkby Paul Vegas11 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is proud to have reached 50 caps with Denmark.Schmeichel produced a stunning performance on Saturday night to record a clean sheet on his 50th outing for his country, an appearance that saw him match Andy King as City’s most-capped player.The 32-year-old stopper made four high-class saves to keep Switzerland at bay, Yussuf Poulsen’s goal in the final 10 minutes sealing a 1-0 victory that boosts Denmark’s chances of reaching the Euro 2020 finals. “I don’t know if it was my best international match – but at least it was important,” Schmeichel said after the win.“It was a fantastic and really, really important victory. It wasn’t our best international match, but we fought and fought all the way through, and it’s incredibly important.“It was a big motivating factor that I was not involved in the national team earlier in my career, but I am grateful to be part of it now and it makes me proud to play 50 games for my country. Now I just hope for 50 more.“If I don’t last five years, then I will be disappointed.“You can’t plan for football. Anything can happen. You can get hurt tomorrow and not have the opportunity to come back, so you have to be grateful every time you are teamed up with the national team.“Every match I get to play in front of such a crowd, I am incredibly grateful for, because it happens so rarely. We must be proud of all the matches we can fight on the national team.”Asked if he’s improved over recent years, Schmeichel joked: “I always think I’ve been so good.“I don’t know if I’ve progressed so much. A goalkeeper’s game is very much about routine and about playing lots of matches. I have been doing this for a number of years and it has borne fruit.“I am also surrounded by good teammates and good coaches with the national team and at my club, where my strengths are utilised.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

US government shuts down Dems GOP blame each other

first_imgWASHINGTON – The federal government shut down at the stroke of midnight Friday, halting all but the most essential operations and marring the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration in a striking display of Washington dysfunction.Last-minute negotiations crumbled as Senate Democrats blocked a four-week stopgap extension in a late-night vote, causing the fourth government shutdown in a quarter century. Behind the scenes, however, leading Republicans and Democrats were trying to work out a compromise to avert a lengthy shutdown.Congress scheduled an unusual Saturday session to begin considering a three-week version of the short-term spending measure — and to broadcast that they were at work as the shutdown commences. It seemed likely each side would try forcing votes aimed at making the other party look culpable for shuttering federal agencies.Since the closure began at the start of a weekend, many of the immediate effects will be muted for most Americans. But any damage could build quickly if the closure is prolonged. And it comes with no shortage of embarrassment for the president and political risk for both parties, as they wager that voters will punish the other at the ballot box in November.Social Security and most other safety net programs are unaffected by the lapse in federal spending authority. Critical government functions will continue, with uniformed service members, health inspectors and law enforcement officers set to work without pay. But if no deal is brokered before Monday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be furloughed.After hours of closed-door meetings and phone calls, the Senate scheduled its late-night vote on a House-passed plan. It gained 50 votes to proceed to 49 against, but 60 were needed to break a Democratic filibuster. A handful of red-state Democrats crossed the aisle to support the measure, rather than take a politically risky vote. Four Republicans voted in opposition.In an unusual move, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell allowed the roll call to exceed two hours— instead of the usual 20 or so — and run past midnight, seemingly accommodating the numerous discussions among leaders and other lawmakers. Still as midnight passed and the calendar turned, there was no obvious off-ramp to the political stalemate.Even before the vote, Trump was pessimistic, tweeting that Democrats actually wanted the shutdown “to help diminish the success” of the tax bill he and fellow Republicans pushed through last month. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders later termed the Democrats “obstructionist losers.”Democrats balked on the measure in an effort to pressure on the White House to cut a deal to protect “dreamer” immigrants — who were brought to the country as children and are now here illegally — before their legal protection runs out in March.The president watched the results from the White House residence, dialing up allies and affirming his belief that Democrats would take the blame for the shutdown, said a person familiar with his conversations but not authorized to discuss them publicly.Predictably, both parties moved swiftly to blame one another. Democrats laid fault with Republicans, who control both chambers of Congress and the White House and have struggled with building internal consensus. Republicans declared Democrats responsible, after they declined to provide the votes needed to overcome a filibuster over their desire to force the passage of legislation to protect some 700,000 younger immigrants from deportation.Republicans branded the confrontation a “Schumer shutdown” and argued that Democrats were harming fellow Americans to protect “illegal immigrants.” Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said a “Trump shutdown” was more accurate.Earlier Friday, Trump had brought Schumer to the White House in hopes of cutting a deal on a short-term spending agreement.The two New Yorkers, who pride themselves on their negotiating abilities, started talking over cheeseburgers about a larger agreement that would have included greater military spending and money for a southern border wall.But the talks fell apart almost as abruptly as they started. In a phone call hours later, the president raised new concerns about the deal he and Schumer had discussed, according to a person familiar with the conversation. In a subsequent phone call with Schumer, chief of staff John Kelly said the deal discussed was too liberal. The White House did not immediately comment on that account.Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told CNN that “Not much has changed” over the course of the day, but he predicted a deal would be reached by Monday, when most government offices are to reopen after the weekend.Democrats in the Senate had served notice they would filibuster the government-wide funding bill that cleared the House Thursday evening. They were seeking an even shorter extension that they think would keep the pressure on the White House to cut a deal to protect the “dreamer” immigrants.“We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands,” Sanders said in a statement.Trump first described his discussion with Schumer as an “excellent preliminary meeting,” tweeting that lawmakers were “making progress – four week extension would be best!” But that optimism faded as the evening wore on. McConnell did not attend the meeting because he was not invited, a Senate GOP aide said.Trump had been an unreliable negotiator in the weeks leading up to the showdown. Earlier this week he tweeted opposition to the four-week plan, forcing the White House to later affirm his support. He expressed openness to extending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, only to reject a bipartisan proposal. His disparaging remarks about African and Haitian immigrants last week helped derail further negotiations.Trump had been set to leave Friday afternoon to attend a fundraiser at his Palm Beach, Florida, estate marking the one-year anniversary of his inauguration but delayed his travel.As word of the Schumer meeting spread, the White House hastened to reassure Republican congressional leaders that Trump would not make any major policy concessions, said a person familiar with the conversations but not authorized to be quoted by name.On Capitol Hill, McConnell said Americans at home would be watching to see “which senators make the patriotic decision” and which “vote to shove aside veterans, military families and vulnerable children to hold the entire country hostage… until we pass an immigration bill.”“We can’t keep kicking the can down the road,” said Schumer, insisting on more urgency in talks on immigration. “In another month, we’ll be right back here, at this moment, with the same web of problems at our feet, in no better position to solve them.”The four-week measure would have been the fourth stopgap spending bill since the current budget year started in October. A pile of unfinished Capitol Hill business has been on hold, first as Republicans ironed out last fall’s tax bill and now as Democrats insist on progress on immigration. Talks on a budget deal to ease tight spending limits on both the Pentagon and domestic agencies are on hold, as is progress on a huge $80 billion-plus disaster aid bill.Before Thursday night’s House approval, GOP leaders sweetened the stopgap measure with legislation to extend for six years a popular health care program for children from low-income families and two-year delays in unpopular “Obamacare” taxes on medical devices and generous employer-provided health plans.A shutdown would be the first since 2013, when tea party Republicans — in a strategy not unlike the one Schumer is employing now — sought to use a must-pass funding bill to try to force then-President Barack Obama to delay implementation of his marquee health care law. At the time, Trump told Fox & Friends that the ultimate blame for a shutdown lies at the top. “I really think the pressure is on the president,” he said.Arguing that Trump’s predecessors “weaponized” that shutdown, Mulvaney said Friday the budget office would direct agencies to work to mitigate the impact this time. That position is a striking role-reversal for the conservative former congressman, who was one of the architects of the 2013 shutdown over the Affordable Care Act.___Associated Press writers Jill Colvin and Catherine Lucey contributed to this report from Washington.
