The Soul Home is located in an urban growing suburb of Da Nang, Vietnam. The house is built for a family with 3 generations. The grandfather stayed in northern Vietnam living a simple and hardworking life doing farming. The couple studied and are working in Da Nang i.e Central Vietnam and the kids have always been influenced by modern and western culture while growing up. Visiting their countryside home evokes nostalgic memories of childhood vacations.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ho Khue ArchitectsThe user wanted a modern house while keeping simple and traditional beliefs. A home where the grandfather also feels homely as a village house. It was a challenge to juxtapose the rural and modern believes and lifestyles of members of the family. The private and common spaces of the house are organized differently around a central patio, this design solution was born out of the need to respect each family member’s daily life. The result is an “exploded house”, where the dwelling is composed of isolated volumes.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Sections AThe private spaces like bedrooms and bathrooms are separated from the common spaces like kitchen, dining and family room. The isolated volumes are connected via a bridge which also encourages movement and visual connection. In order to recreate the essence of a countryside home the spaces have exposed brick finishes; earthy and homely. In Da Nang, winds are very strong throughout the year due to which mainstream houses are always a rigid block and with common walls. The isolated volumes in this design make it challenging to reduce the inner heat of spaces and maintain cool micro-climate.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ho Khue ArchitectsThe green courtyard and roof help in creating a green envelope over the spaces which help in filtering hot and sandy winds keeping the interiors cool. The narrow way from blocks opens up into the courtyard with a waterbody energizing the atmosphere. The horizontal and vertical green on the building can be used for urban farming of local vegetation with fruits, vegetables, herbs etc for a healthy family lifestyle.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ho Khue ArchitectsThe farming will help grandfather keep the essence of his lifestyle helping the family live healthily. The site is located in a plotting scheme, the blocks in the design are surrounded by vegetation within the site which acts as a visual barrier. Over time family becomes wider and so should the house, the separate spaces and blocks encourage each individual to have privacy and personal space. The Soul Home is an attempt to create a module for a sustainable long-lasting house in which many members can live separately but with togetherness.Save this picture!Courtesy of Ho Khue ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Shiraiwa / 2id ArchitectsSelected ProjectsAD ARCHITECTURE Office / AD ARCHITECTURESelected Projects Share Houseslast_img read more

Flenory’s grandson picks Stanford

first_imgFollow the New Pittsburgh Courier on Twitter https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierLike our Fan Page us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlDownload our mobile app at http://www.appshopper.com/news/new-pittsburgh-courier Brandon Simmons, Flenory’s grandson, is ranked as the number 12 safety in the country and is one of the top-200 prospects nationally. He is a defensive back at Timberview High School, which is in the Mansfield, Texas, School District. He is only a junior, but has received more than 40 scholarship offers from colleges across the country. Texas, Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCLA, LSU and Harvard are among the schools that have offered scholarships.Simmons, became Stanford University first commitment of the 2014 class and is the Cardinals first signee from Texas since the 2012 class.“A friend of mine from Texas Ty Mongomery plays for Stanford, so they were always high on my list,” said Simmons. “I wanted to major in Forensic or Business and Stanford has a great Business School.”Among numerous qualities about the university, Simmons said the campus and coaching staff put Stanford over the top.“I heard the campus was beautiful but it surpassed all my expectations,” Simmons said. “Coach (David) Shaw is really laid back and doesn’t lose his calm, but when I told him I was committing he jumped up and hollered.”For years Flenory’s proudest memories was his 81 point game in junior high. A performance that led to an appearance in Sports Illustrated’s “Faces in the Crowd.”“I’m more proud of my grandson than anything that I ever done,” said Flenory. “He is just as strong academically as he is athletically. For him to have scholarship offers from schools like Harvard and Stanford. I couldn’t be more proud.”Brandon’s father (Kashann Simmons) is a football coach and he virtually grew up with a football in his hand.Indeed, legend has it that when Brandon was only a few months old, his father placed a football in his crib, thereby setting him on the gridiron path.Brandon is a straight-A student but he is a lot more than Sir Isaac Newton in shoulder pads and helmet.Simmons plays like a combination of his two idols: big hitter Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers and ball hawk Ed Reed from the Baltimore Ravens.As a sophomore he racked up 100 tackles, 2 sacks, 3 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, and 15 passes broken up. He had nearly 100 tackles as a junior.Simmons is truly a leader focused and determined to be the best he can be.“I wanted to commit early so that I can focus on my senior year,” said Simmons. “As a team we didn’t do very well last year. This year we return a lot of leaders. We have been working hard this spring and we are determined to have a successful season.”The U.S. Army High School All-American Bowl has become the “can’t miss” game for football fans across the country and Simmons has already been selected to play in next years’ game. He will be featured in the same defensive backfield as Gateway’s Montae Nicholson.Did Simmons ever consider playing at the University of Pittsburgh?“Pitt was on my wish list, but they didn’t show me any love,” said Simmons. “Pitt is a great school and has a tremendous medical program. I’m 110 percent committed to Stanford, but Pitt would have been very high on my list.”With Steelers safeties Polamalu and Ryan Clark getting long in the tooth, maybe in four years Pittsburgh can show Brandon Simmons “some love” on draft day. BRANDON SIMMONSBaron “B.B.” Flenory remains a legendary figure in high school basketball, in college basketball and to those in western Pennsylvania. Flenory was a Parade All-American as a senior at Valley High School. He was a star player at Duquesne University. He is in the WPIAL Hall of Fame, Pennsylvania Basketball Hall of Fame and is now happy to pass the torch.last_img read more

Bale set for ‘Sh126mn million a week’ China move

first_imgSpanish daily Marca claimed that Bale, who has been at Real since 2013 since signing from Tottenham, will earn 22 million euros per season in China and that the deal is almost finalised.However, later reports by Sky Sports in England suggested the player’s representatives were negotiating a mind-boggling £1 million a week contract before the Chinese transfer window shuts on Wednesday.Real boss Zidane said last weekend he thought it would be “best for everyone” if Bale’s departure could be arranged quickly — comments Bale’s agent branded “disrespectful” of a player who helped the side to a Spanish league title and four Champions Leagues since arriving from Tottenham six years ago.Zidane then insisted Monday he meant no disrespect before Bale came on as a substitute in a midweek 3-2 friendly win over Arsenal in the United States.“He had a good game and I’m happy for him,” Zidane said. “I do not know what’s going to happen, for now he’s with us. It did not change anything.”Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has already insisted that any deal which sees the Welshman leave the Bernabeu would have to be a permanent one and not one that sees him shipped out on loan.“There will be no makeshift deals to get him out of the club,” said Barnett.“Gareth is one of the best players on the planet. I can guarantee you he will not be going on loan to any club.”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000China calling for Gareth Bale? © AFP / Jim WATSONPARIS, France, Jul 27 – Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale was Friday on the verge of signing a “Sh126mn (£1mn) a week” deal with Chinese Super League outfit Jiangsu Suning, reports claimed.The 30-year-old Welshman has already been told by Real coach Zinedine Zidane that he does not form part of his future plans at the Spanish giants.last_img read more

Absa in Barclays Africa franchise deal

first_img26 February 2013South African bank Absa is to step up its African expansion following shareholder approval for an R18.3-billion deal to combine with Barclays Africa, enabling it to start serving 14.4-million customers across 10 countries on the continent.The deal will see Absa Group Limited combine with Barclays Africa and change the name of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange-listed company to Barclays Africa Group Limited in order to illustrate the “enlarged nature of the business”, the firm said in a statement following the shareholders’ vote on Monday.“This is an exciting and transformational deal that will create a high quality franchise in Africa with a leading network of more than 1 300 outlets and 10 400 [automated teller machines] across 10 countries,” said Absa Group chief executive Maria Ramos.“The vote of confidence from Absa’s independent shareholders is an important milestone in our journey towards becoming the ‘go-to’ bank across Africa.”The deal also got the green light from South Africa’s biggest institutional investor, the Public Investment Corporation (PIC).The PIC is owned by the South African government, with Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan as its shareholder representative; it was established in 1911 and has become one of the continent’s largest investment managers, investing funds on behalf of public sector organisations and representing over R1.17-trillion in assets.The PIC said the deal, worth R18.3-billion, afforded the bank the chance to diversify its income outside of the South African market. “We support the deal primarily because this provides Absa with an immediate exposure to a higher growth trajectory market,” it said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

South African granny sets off on an epic road trip across Africa

first_imgSouth African grandmother Julia Albu is putting younger explorers to shame, embarking on a car journey across Africa. Albu set off on her road trip on 13 June 2017 and will be detailing her adventures on social media. Julia Albu celebrates the start of her solo car trip across Africa. Albu started her road trip, in her trusty 1997 Toyota Conquest, nicknamed Tracy, on 13 June 2017. (Image: My African Conquest Facebook page)CD AndersonA Jakkelsfontein, Western Cape resident, 80-year-old Julia Albu, driving her 1997 Toyota Conquest, is making her way across the continent on a solo road trip to raise awareness for literacy.Albu’s idea for the trip started more than a year ago when she pondered why so many South Africans relied on more modern, expensive vehicles just to drive on ordinary roads. She was confident her modest 20-year-old Conquest could just as easily tackle the rougher terrains of Africa.Following the death of her partner of 33 years in 2015, raising four children and being a “gogo” to her nine grandchildren, Albu decided that it was finally time to take charge of her own destiny and embark on the adventure of a lifetime.Albu’s car, nicknamed Tracy, had already clocked almost 400,000km in the 20 years she had been behind the wheel.  Speaking to 702 Radio/Cape Talk on 6 June 2017, Albu said her car always gave her the freedom to go anywhere and do anything she wanted, “with the windows down and the wind in [my] face, always with [my] favourite music” playing at top volume. And what better way to celebrate that freedom to go anywhere than to witness the beauty of Africa and meet its people first hand?Listen to the full interview below Albu’s end-point is London, via the east African coast, then catching a ferry across the Mediterranean Sea and driving through Europe. And she is doing it all for a good cause: literacy and education.“You can’t do this for nothing because it’s a waste of time, no matter how much effort you have. You have to take a charity,” she says.While distributing books and offering reading lessons to children along the way, Albu will be raising awareness of the Shine Literacy organisation in Cape Town. “It is an early learning [charity] for children, but not just learning how to read. It teaches them the meaning of the word. You can read but you don’t know what you are reading and this teaches children the meaning of what they are reading.”As her journey progresses, Albu will be keeping her followers updated via her Facebook page, with photos and videos detailing her adventures.  She and Tracy will also be featured in an insert on the M-Net programme Carte Blanche on 18 June 2017.Julia Albu prepares for the start of her solo car trip across Africa.

Albu started her road trip, in her trusty 1997 Toyota Conquest, nicknamed Tracy, on 13 June 2017. (Image: My African Conquest Facebook page)Rest assured, Albu has not taken the trip lightly: making sure she is fighting fit for the rigours of long distance driving, camping and tackling whatever Africa throws at her, she has had a full medical check-up that found her in good health for the journey.Albu has also accepted sponsorships that ensure she has all the right equipment and support for the long trip. Her local Toyota dealership has also come on board, and made sure Tracy the Conquest was ready for the trip. It has also offered assistance if there are any mechanical hiccups along the way.Writing on her blog in anticipation of her journey, Albu offered a poem she wrote highlighting what the trip meant to her:“When you have acquired a taste for the dust / and the scent of our first rain / you’re hooked for life on Africa… it is time to cut the traces loose / and let your heart go free/ beyond that far horizon/ where your spirit yearns to be.”Godspeed Julia and Tracy, may you both have the time of your lives.Follow Julia Albu’s journey on her Facebook page and her website.Source: 702 Radio /Cape Talk, My African Conquest Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Wage issue hits India’s easternmost tiger reserve

first_imgConservation of the Royal Bengal Tiger has taken a hit in India’s easternmost tiger reserve.The authorities of the Namdapha Tiger Reserve in Arunachal Pradesh have discontinued the services of 53 frontline staff, all casual employees.The 1,895 sq.km. tiger reserve in Changlang district, bordering Myanmar, is now left with 113 casual employees, who were inducted under Project Tiger of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA).In an order on July 14, Namdapha’s Field Director T. Riba said the 53 were shortlisted after an assessment of the performing and non-performing workers. This was in view of non-payment of wages of the casual employees by the NTCA.Officials of the Arunachal Pradesh Forest Department said the NTCA, formed in 2005, roped in 166 people for Namdapha a few years ago. But the NTCA did not provide any fund for wages of these casual employees during the 2018-2019 fiscal.“A huge amount of fund is required to meet the expenses of wages of these employees, and also a huge amount of arrear wages is lying outstanding due to non-receipt of funds from the NTCA,” the order said.“There are a large number of non-performing casual employees adding to the burden of this establishment,” the order said, adding that the non-performing employees were evaluated and told to go.“Almost 80% of Namdapha is inaccessible, and it is difficult for the staff to monitor the remaining area of the tiger reserve. The reduced staff strength will make it harder for us, but one cannot help if there are no funds,” Mr. Riba told The Hindu.Three tigersWildlife officials believe that Namdapha, at an altitude varying from 200 metres to 4,571 metres above mean sea level, is an ideal tiger habitat. But no tiger has ever been caught there in camera traps.“In 2018, we set up 118 camera traps but could not catch any tiger. We confirmed the presence of three individual tigers from pug marks and scats (DNA from tiger poop),” Mr Riba said.Namdapha, named after a river meandering through it, was declared as India’s 15th Tiger Reserve in 1983 with a core area of 1,808 sq km and a buffer zone of 177 sq km. Declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1972, it was elevated to a national park in the same year as it was made a tiger reserve.The tiger is one of 96 species of mammals found in Namdapha, which is divided into the Miao, Namdapha and Gandhigram ranges. The others include the endemic red giant flying squirrel, leopard, clouded leopard, snow leopard, Malayan sun bear, Asiatic black bear, hoolock gibbon, and capped langur.Namdapha has been in the news for the State government’s push for developing a 156 km road through it connecting Miao, the headquarters of the tiger reserve, and Vijaynagar, a settlement of former Assam Rifles personnel close to the Myanmar border.The road is the lifeline of Vijaynagar requiring people to trek for seven to 10 days. The odd sortie by Indian Air Force is the only other way for the people there to communicate with the world beyond.last_img read more
