HUS NILSSON is a summer house situated at the Norrfjärden bay in the archipelago ofnorth Sweden, on a steep slope between the forest and the sea. Despite being on the east coast, the site is facing west. Buildings in the area are mainly summer houses, scatteredalong the coast line and accessed from behind by a net of private roads. The bay is livelywith people fishing and bathing in the summer, and ice skating in the winter.The existing house on the site was a very small cabin from the 1950s, without water in thewinter and mainly built for short visits – somewhere to get warm after fishing and skating.The family wanted a house inhabitable during all seasons, with internal and external spacesturning towards the beautiful view across the bay and towards the forest.Save this picture!Site PlanThey also wanteda house which could both be sociable and allow for privacy for the different members of thefamily, also in the long term.The new house, a singular long and narrow building volume with a steep pitched roof andclosed gables, spans across the site and aims to be the connection between the forest andthe water. By its form and its placement on the site, it allows many of its rooms a view ofthe sea; the placement also affords privacy and prevents the house from feeling overlookedby its neighbours. The building is tied to its site by being sat directly upon an existing stoneretaining wall; the wall creates a natural outdoor terrace overlooking the sea, onto whichthe internal spaces connects. On the forest side, the site is excavated in order to create amore generous space for play and outdoor work.Save this picture!© Peter GuthrieThe visual and physical contact between the house and with its surroundings is achieved bythe general layout of the spaces: a central open and sociable living space with bedrooms oneither ends which can be connected or closed off. This configuration incoorporatescirculation space in order to minimize wasted floor area, and creates different ways ofmoving through the house, which together with enhanced sightlines increases theperception of space and gives a feeling of that the house is bigger than it is. This feeling isfurther emphasized by the central and freestanding fireplace which also provides a focalpoint and divides the large space into dining and living areas.The one commonly featured'outdoor room' in Nordic private houses is here integrated in the main volume; by making itan external passage through the house, it not only creates a visual and physical connectionbetween the forest and the sea, it also lifts it from its normal periferal position to be thenave of the building.Hus Nilsson is by its form and materiality connecting to the local building tradition in thearea.Save this picture!© Peter GuthrieSave this picture!DetailsSave this picture!© Peter GuthrieAlthough being situated by a fairly sheltered bay in the Baltic sea, the impact of theclimate on buildings in this part of the country is significant. The roof has a steep pitch inorder to reduce snow load, and is given a large overhang to better protect against wind andsalty water. The facade is clad with heart of pine treated with a silicon protection andcomplemented with a cement based stone cladding on the forest facing elevations.The roofis of aluminium-zinc coated sheet steel. The structure is entirely made out of timber; loadcarrying timber studs with a gluelam roof structure. The foundation is a concrete slabfoundation.The building was completed in the summer of 2017. The construction took 7 months fromthe demolition of the existing cabin until completion, and was made possible by an efficientand very successful collaboration between the architect, client, and contractor.Save this picture!© Peter GuthrieProject gallerySee allShow lessDelgada 1 / Camarim ArquitectosSelected ProjectsOffice Building in Za bramką Street/ Ultra ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeTina Bergman ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSöderhamnSwedenPublished on January 30, 2018Cite: “Hus Nilsson / Tina Bergman Architect” 30 Jan 2018.

She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. Vicky PhelanPhotographer – Paul Sherwood [email protected] LIMERICK woman who exposed the CervicalCheck scandal says that new laws are needed to enshrine management-level accountability in the public service.Vicky Phelan was speaking at the launch this week of a new support group set up with Lorraine Walsh and Stephen Teap, named 221+ after the number of women who have been affected by false-negative smears and withheld information.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The three were on hand for the launch of the new group at Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park, Dublin.Ms Phelan said she did not want to see a commission of investigation “as it would drag on for years and no-one would be accountable in the end. “We’re living in a country where people can get away with things at a management level and not be held accountable,” said Ms Phelan, who exposed the issue by refusing to sign a confidentiality agreement on getting a court settlement against the US laboratory which read the failed smear tests.“Until we start fighting and jumping up and down to try to get it, we’re not going to get accountability. We can’t sack people in this country.”The mother-of-two said that if the campaign she started helps other victims, that gives her a sense of purpose.She also paid tribute to her fellow campaigners. “There isn’t a chance in hell that I would be standing here without Stephan Teap and the other women and families who have been affected by this”, she said.  221+ will offer an opportunity for those affected by the scandal to support each other as well as advocate for change in the health service. “One of the things I will be looking at is legislation for accountability, not just in the health sector but across the public sector and the civil service because we just don’t have it in this country,” she said.Meanwhile, the proposed establishment of a private tribunal to deal with claims arising from the CervicalCheck scandal received a cautious welcome from the 221+ group although it was disappointed Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s commitment to a “totally non-adversarial” process was not followed through.The tribunal, similar to court proceedings but held behind closed doors, was proposed by Judge Charles Meenan in a Government-commissioned report.Ms Phelan urged Health Minister Simon Harris to provide assurances on how the adversarial nature of such a process can be minimised.”Her solicitor Cian O’Carroll, who is also representing several other of the women affected by the scandal, said it added to the choice of options open to his clients.“The problem is the tribunal is in private and it shields the State and labs from the public knowing about negligent errors. Women must also prove their case in an adversarial system,” he said. Limerick on Covid watch list Advertisement Local backlash over Aer Lingus threatlast_img read more

Panelists discuss refugees, far-right in Germany

first_imgIn the late summer of 2015, Germany opened its borders to a large number of Syrian refugees who were fleeing their country for Europe. That policy choice has had many ramifications in the nearly three years since. In recent weeks, the city of Chemnitz in eastern Germany has seen an acute backlash against foreigners after two refugees allegedly stabbed a German man to death.A panelist of six Notre Dame faculty members explored the forces at work in Chemnitz, Germany, and the West in a Tuesday panel discussion entitled “Lessons from Chemnitz: Right-Wing Radicalism in Europe Today.” Annie Smierciak | The Observer Six Notre Dame professors participated in a panel discussion Tuesday titled “Lessons from Chemnitz: Right-Wing Radicalism in Europe Today.” The panel focused on the issues of refugees and the far-right in Germany.Maurizio Albahari, an associate professor of anthropology, noted the trend of illiberalism sweeping Europe. While he said the European far-right, with the help of former White House advisor Steve Bannon, is increasingly effective at campaigning, there are underlying issues that make Europeans susceptible to these arguments.“Concerns about immigration often illuminate issues that predate immigration — regional hierarchies and inequalities, youth emigration, multiple forms of socioeconomic precariousness and nationalism,” Albahari said.To demonstrate his point, Albahari described the situation in Saxony, the state in which Chemnitz is located. Though he said many residents cite the influx of foreigners as society’s biggest problem, most people have not had major interactions with foreign-born individuals. Most Saxony residents are also relatively satisfied with their lives. These facts, he said, point to the “saliency” of racism. However, Albahari expressed hope for the future, as he noted the many active anti-racist and anti-fascist groups in Chemnitz.“If it is at the local and everyday level that national and supranational racism materializes, it is also at that very level that egalitarian integration and anti-racist engagement emerges with equal force,” he said.Rüdiger Bachmann, an economics professor, explored how migration and related issues have affected the German political scene, particularly regarding the electoral ascendancy of the far-right, anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) Party.In exploring what kind of people vote for the AfD, Bachmann suggested history could play a role.“Who votes for AfD? Who votes right-wing populist in Germany? That’s actually a bit surprising. A famous, current study … they actually find something super interesting, something that’s also slightly deviating from experience in other countries,” he said. “They actually found that the biggest explanatory variable for AfD vote shares is the vote shares of the Nazi Party in the early 1930s. This is controlling for influx of immigrants and unemployment rates, which sort of approximate local economic conditions, which actually didn’t have much explanatory power. So, this, if you believe these numbers, that shows there’s a deep undercurrent cultural streak of racism, anti-Semitism, in the vote shares of the parties.”In discussing the current state of other major German political parties, Bachmann said longtime Chancellor Angela Merkel, who opened the borders in 2015, is in a weak position. He also said Germany’s two largest parties, the center-right Christian Democratic Union and center-left Social Democratic Party, are both in a precarious position. The AfD, he said, has placed second in recent opinion polls.Bill Donahue, the director of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, said overall German attitudes toward immigration have soured in the years since 2015.“When I compare mainstream news reports from a year ago to now, what you see is people who were basically pro-immigration, pro-integration are largely abandoning that stance. They’re abandoning it by taking cover under bureaucratic and logistical arguments,” he said.While at one point many Germans saw the influx of immigrants as an opportunity, that idea has lost much of its popularity, Donahue said.“In 2015-2016 … there was a bit of a honeymoon for German national identity. Contrary to what Fritz Stern argued about unification being Germany’s great second chance, it was really Merkel’s immigration policy that gave Germany its great second chance,” he said. “It revived German popularity, German reputation and essentially erased to some extent the image of Germany of former Nazis. That no longer seems to be paramount in the minds of Merkel’s critics, for all kinds of reasons.”American studies professor Perin Gürel discussed the implications of these current problems for Germany’s Turkish community, which continues to be Germany’s largest ethnic minority. While the Turkish-German community has been vocal in its opposition to the backlash in Chemnitz, Gürel drew parallels between Germany’s experience with refugees and Turkey’s, noting that the latter is home to the largest number of Syrian refugees.“In an online discussion, I was surprised to see — I don’t know why I was surprised — but it was shocking to see Turks express some anti-refugee sentiments that really parallel the German far-right,” Gürel said.Vittorio Hösle, the Paul Kimball Chair of Arts and Letters, expressed a concern that it is becoming more difficult to have a rational conversation about the politics of refugees in Germany, noting there are “objectively” some issues that have been caused by the influx.“What worries me is that it has become very difficult to discuss rationally the pros and cons of different policies,” Hösle said. “On both sides, there are certain stereotypes there. If you are critical of some of the decisions of Merkel, then you are adamantly a neo-Nazi, and on the other hand, if you are for universalist politics you are a traitor to your nation.”Hösle offered some criticisms for how Merkel had handled the refugee situation, noting she did not consult the German parliament before deciding to open the country’s borders. He was also critical of the chancellor’s failure to set an upper limit on how many refugees she was willing to admit at the height of the crisis.Jim McAdams, a political science professor and the director emeritus of the Nanovic Institute, said German political parties need to make changes in how they operate in order to connect with the types of people who vote for the far-right. He cited the example of people living in formerly communist East Germany, whose plight, he argued, is not well understood by those living in former West Germany and has led them to support the far-right.“I think they need to do is begin to redefine themselves,” he said. “The challenge for parties in Germany is how to redefine their relationship with people who no longer trust them.”Tags: far-right, germany, Nanovic Institute, nationalism, Refugeeslast_img read more

‘The man who won an AFCON for Ghana’: 5 things to know about Opoku Afriyie

first_imgGhanaian football has taken a massive hit with the demise of former national team striker Opoku Afriyie.The former Kotoko captain died on Sunday in Kumasi at the age of 64, with a long, exceptional life behind him both on and off the field.While many followers of local football might immediately recognise Afriyie, his importance to the game in the country might still not be apparent to some people.Here are a few things to know about the deadly goal poacher who came to be known simply as ‘Bayie’He won the 1978 AFCON for GhanaWith Ghana seeking a third African Cup of Nations title in 1978, a lot of pressure was on the Black Stars to win the cup for keeps.Having scored in Ghana’s opening win against Zambia, Opoku Afriyie went on to make an even more significant impact in the final.He scored both of the Stars’ goals in the 2-0 win over Uganda as Ghana became Champions of Africa for the third time.1979 goal kingAfriyie was for a number of years, one of the most feared goalscorers in the local league.He was top scorer in 1979 for Asante Kotoko, a season in which the Porcupine Warriors scored 51 goals in total; the second-highest in the league.However, they missed out on the title to Hearts of Oak by one point.Goals and a titleHaving won the previous season’s title, Kotoko started a period of dominance in Ghana from 1981 led by Opoku Afriyie’s goals.Afriyie won the top scorer’s award for the second time in three years as Kotoko edged out rivals Hearts for the league title.Captain, Team manager, legendOpoku Afriyie wasn’t just a top-class striker while at Asante Kotoko, he was a leader as well. He led the side as captain for a number of years before returning as team manager in 2003 after his retirement.He also captained the Black Stars from 1984 to 1986 before eventually becoming team manager of the national team.Opoku Afriyie in his playing daysFrom Kotoko to HeartsNot many players have been successful at Ghana’s two biggest clubs but Opoku Afriyie was certainly one of them. Having played for many years in Kumasi, winning multiple league titles, Afriyie signed for Hearts in 1984. He was league champion again with Hearts before retiring.last_img read more

Parsons: Doc Rivers could leave Clippers if Donald Sterling remains owner

first_imgHe added that numerous sponsors have told him they will stick with the Clippers only if Sterling is no longer the owner.“If Doc would leave, that would be a disaster,” Parsons said.The interim CEO also expressed concern that players could leave the team if Sterling remains the owner, and said he has had conversations with team captain Chris Paul, who also serves as the president of the National Basketball Players Association. Parsons did not disclose specifics of the conversations.Parsons also said that, if the sale drags on, it would be difficult to match the $2 billion price it fetched from former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. He called the winning bid a “knockout price,” comparing the purchase of the team to that of other trophy assets like a Fabergé egg.The $2 billion price can’t be justified on “any financial metric basis,” Parsons said, but its value was pushed up because Ballmer wanted to make a pre-emptive bid to shut out other prospective buyers. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers could leave the team if Donald Sterling remains its owner, interim CEO Dick Parsons testified Tuesday.Taking the stand for the first time in a probate trial that could determine ownership of the Los Angeles basketball franchise, Parsons said he has had three conversations with Rivers since being appointed as interim CEO in May.Each time, Rivers gave the same answer, telling Parsons “he doesn’t think that he wants to continue as coach” if Sterling retains control of the team he has owned since 1981. Sterling was banned from the NBA for life after the publication of racist comments he made to a female friend, but he has vowed not to sell the team.Calling Rivers a “father figure” for the team, Parsons said the departure of the veteran coach could accelerate the Clippers’ “death spiral” — resulting in a potential loss of key players, team sponsors, as well as season ticket holders. Rivers had agreed to a three-year deal with the team in June 2013. “If Steve goes away, I don’t know how you get to this number again,” Parsons said.Bank of America’s Anwar Zakkour, who advised on the sale, said in his own testimony, “I think we were doing back flips when we got the $2 billion bid from Mr. Ballmer.”Zakkour said Bank of America’s preliminary valuation of the franchise was $1 billion to $1.3 billion. A second evaluation based on very “aggressive” assumptions related to local and national television deals bumped the estimate up to $1.5 billion to $1.8 billion.Zakkour called the eventual $2 billion bid “nirvana.”Additionally, an earlier meeting between Donald Sterling and Ballmer on Monday night produced no signs that the longtime Clippers owner’s vow to fight the NBA for the rest of his life was softening. On Tuesday evening, Sterling filed a civil lawsuit against Shelly Sterling, the NBA, and others over Shelly’s actions related to LAC Basketball Club Inc., the Clippers’ corporation.“I don’t think there’s been much change in his position,” said Bobby Samini, an attorney for Donald Sterling.The lawsuit, filed in L.A. Superior Court, alleges that Shelly Sterling didn’t have the right to sell the team, said Matthew M. Hoesly, part of Donald Sterling’s legal team.Sterling had filed a federal lawsuit against the NBA in June seeking $1 billion in antitrust damages. The league can seize the team on Sept. 15 and vote to terminate Sterling’s ownership if the team is not sold, something Sterling said he wanted to happen during his testimony two weeks ago..The trial will resume Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. Donald Sterling’s attorneys plan to call Shelly Sterling back to the stand, as well as Dr. Jeffrey Cummings of the Cleveland Clinic.Staff writer Dakota Smith contributed to this report.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

NBA playoffs wrap 2019: Kevin Durant scores 50 to power Warriors to series win over Clippers

Former Warriors guard Eric “Sleepy” Floyd scored 39 in a 1987 playoff outing. Charles Barkley scored 38 in 1994. Michael Jordan holds the all-time game record with 63 in a 1986 playoff loss to the Celtics.Although the Warriors won going away, there was some cause for concern on the Golden State side. Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry rolled his ankle late in the first quarter, and began hobbling. Uh oh. Steph Curry rolled his right ankle— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) April 27, 2019After heading to the locker room for some “stretching,” Curry returned. But given his history of ankle issues, Warriors faithful were — and may still be — holding their breath.With the Clippers dispatched, the Warriors move on to face the Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals, in a rematch of last season’s seven-game conference finals. Game 1 is Sunday.Stud of the nightKevin Durant’s huge night stole the headlines, but Warriors forward Draymond Green recorded a triple-double with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists. Kevin Durant often looks unstoppable.Friday against the Clippers, the Warriors star somehow took his game to a level beyond that. Durant scored 50 points to lead the Warriors to a 129-110 victory and a 4-2 series win over the Clippers, who put up a good fight in the Western Conference first-round series.But Durant could have likely scored far more points had the game been in doubt. Because after the Clippers jumped out to a 10-point lead in the first quarter, Durant took charge, finishing the first half with 38 points.
