This project is located in a semi-rural community but still quite close to the city. It was conceived, since the beginning, as a monolith inserted in the ground, so we could respond to 2 fundamental needs. First, the building is integrated with the surrounding constructions and at the same time it seems to merge from the ground. Second, its character is reinforced as a space to be used as a scape from urban life.Save this picture!© alberstudioSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© alberstudioA sequence of terraces is unfolded starting from the highest point on the ground and following downwards. Each one occupies different levels with specific spatial qualities and characteristics. There are 3 terraces with 3 different solar incidences. The first is the covered terrace that hosts a services core, a kitchen and a living room with a fireplace. The second is a shaded terrace that has a grill and a place to set a dining table. The third is  the outdoor terrace that hosts the pool.Save this picture!© alberstudioSave this picture!© alberstudioLocal construction techniques and natural and artisanal materials were used during its construction. This made us achieve its vernacular character. Some examples of these are the broken stone walls, the red clay tiles and the carrizo ceiling. The rest of the ground was left untouched to conserve its natural vegetation.Save this picture!© alberstudioSave this picture!© alberstudioProject gallerySee allShow lessMarina Park Pavilion / DRTAN LM ArchitectSelected ProjectsCenter for the Japanese Culture / Álvaro Bohórquez Rivero + Maribel Moreno CantilloSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945642/mc-terrace-ocupastudio Clipboard ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945642/mc-terrace-ocupastudio Clipboard MC Terrace / OCUPAR.estudioSave this projectSaveMC Terrace / OCUPAR.estudiocenter_img Architects: OCUPAR.estudio Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeOCUPAR.estudioOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookMexicoPublished on August 18, 2020Cite: “MC Terrace / OCUPAR.estudio” [Terraza MC / OCUPAR.estudio] 18 Aug 2020.

Brundidge civic leader speaks out against prison proposal

first_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip “A lot of people are really concerned about it and a lot of people here in Brundidge want it,” Mayor Isabell Boyd on September 29. “We’re going to bring it back up at a later time.”Boyd didn’t say when the issue might come back up on their agenda again.Harvey said he believes Brundidge residents would not support the construction of a prison in their town.“The mayor is saying the people of Brundidge want a prison in their town,” Harvey said. “I have talked to people all around town and that’s certainly not what I’m hearing. People aren’t blind. We see what happened in Clio and Clayton. The prisons have done nothing positive for those towns, and a prison wouldn’t do anything positive for Brundidge.

So,… read more “Who wants to move to a town where there’s a prison? What business wants to come to a town where there’s a prison?”City Manager Britt Thomas said a prison could bring jobs and retail development to the area.“What a mega prison would mean to Brundidge is that 750 employees would be needed and many of those would be correctional officers,” Thomas said.In addition to the correctional officers, the prison would employ administrative personnel, mental health workers, nurses and skilled workers in maintenance.Thomas said retail traditionally follows disposable income and, with the additional job opportunities, local and area residents would have opportunities for good-paying jobs that would translate to disposable income.“The prison would basically be a city of 4,000 people who are confined,” Thomas said. “With that many people, there would be the potential for a small hotel or motel for visiting family members who could come from places like Mobile, Florence and even Tennessee, as well as other businesses that would serve their needs.” “Prisons don’t house law-abiding people. They house people that have broken the law – criminals,” Harvey said. “Many of the prisoners are products of their environment and those that come to see them helped create that environment or are a part of it. How do drugs and contraband get into prisons? Visitors. And, that’s what we want for Brundidge?  You cannot convince me that the people of Brundidge want a prison and a motel to house the prisoners ‘visitors.’”Harvey also spoke out about the idea of the prison bringing jobs to the city.“Even if it did, people don’t want to work,” he said. “Ask around. You can’t get people to work around here. If they did apply and could pass the drug test, they won’t hold the job. If the people of Brundidge want their town to just completely die, the prison is the best way I know how to put a nail in the coffin.”Harvey said it’s time for the people of Brundidge to stand up and dedicate themselves to bringing Brundidge back.“If the city has $60,000 to throw away trying to get a prison, let’s take that money and clean up the town, do something for the kids,” he said.  “And, as citizens, we’ve got to do our part. We’ve got to be together and work together and do so in a constructive way.  It’s up to us and we have to stand together.“And we’ve got to be aware of what our city government is doing.  This issue about the prison is not dead. We can’t be caught unaware.”        Email the author By Jaine Treadwell Concerned that efforts to bring a 4,000-inmate prison to Brundidge could resurface, a Brundidge civic leader says residents need to continue to speak out in opposition to the plan.The Rev. Randy Harvey, associate minister of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Troy and a vocal opponent of the proposal, said he believes despite the lack of action on the proposal during a recent council meeting, officials can revisit the issue.“The item was deleted from the agenda but it will come back when the mayor and council think it has been forgotten,” Harvey said. “But the people are aware of that and we’re going to watch very closely. Brundidge needs a lot of things but a prison is not on that list.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Sponsored Content On Sept. 5, council members reviewed a proposal to contract with Butler Snow, LLP to lobby for Brundidge as the site of a new state correctional facility. The proposed fee was $60,000.When Mayor Isabell Boyd received no immediate response from the council, Council Member Betty Baxter District 1 made a motion that the matter be tabled in an effort for the public to be better informed.The item was not placed on the council’s Sept. 19 agenda, and officials have said that it will be revisited at a later time.

Ionospheric troughs in Antarctica

first_imgWe report here the first observations of the dynamics of both the mid-latitude and high-latitude troughs made by the Advanced Ionospheric Sounder (AIS) at Halley Station, Antarctica (76° S, 27° W; invariant lat. 61°). This experiment is part of a major international project1 to study the sub-auroral ionosphere and its associations with the magnetosphere. Our analysis provides an accurate quantitative description of the latitudinal movements of these features and the first results delineating the orientation of the poleward edge of the mid-latitude trough. These results show that the AIS has a much greater potential for monitoring large scale ionospheric structures and for tracking their motions than more conventional radio wave experiments.last_img

Fantasy Football Best Ball Draft Tips, Strategy

first_imgThere is no denying that Best Ball leagues are soaring in popularity across all fantasy sports, especially fantasy football. Given the league format and deep rosters, there is certainly a different strategy when it comes to drafting in Best Ball than in your typical season-long fantasy leagues.For those of you not familiar with Best Ball, however, let take a look at the league type before we dive into tips for when your draft rolls around. Kicker/DefenseI lump these positions into the same category. Take no more than two kickers, and take them last in my opinion.For defense, you can certainly take three, but the position itself is very random. I’ll gladly leave it until my final few picks and fill only when I have my kicker position left. Nobody expected the Patriots defense to do what it did last year, just like you cannot predict the Jaguars defense from a few years back to turn into Sacksonville. Grab a few solid defenses or defenses that have a good schedule and rock it. Drafting one early just means you are missing a chance to take a depth play at receiver or running back, which could end up being far more valuable to your long-term success. MORE FROM FANTASY ALARM: Draft Guide | Ultimate NFL Package What is Best Ball Fantasy Football?Best Ball is a fantasy format in which all you do is draft your roster. There are no in-season moves or trades, and you do not “set a lineup” every week. For scoring, your top players at each position will have their scores count for that week, so you no longer will be kicking yourself for leaving a guy on your bench who had a big week or struggle with start ’em-sit ’em questions. Best Ball leagues are typically PPR scoring format, and depending on the site, you play from can range from 10-to-12-man leagues with 20-plus man rosters.Fantasy Football Best Ball Draft Tips, StrategyQuarterbackGenerally speaking, you want to draft depth at all positions. That gives you the best chance to outscore your opponent at any given position each week. As is the case in standard leagues, you definitely want to draft two quarterbacks that do not share a bye week. However, unlike standard leagues, it is not unwise to consider drafting at least three players at this position to safe guard against potential injuries or, in the rare case, a sudden retirement like we saw with Andrew Luck last preseason.Again, we are looking at deep rosters here with some sites allowing up to 20-to-22 players per team, which leaves upwards of 11-to-13 bench spots. Now, you can certainly go ahead and snag the likes of Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes to give you the edge at QB1, but ultimately waiting on a quarterback is a strong recommendation given the depth at the position later in rounds compared to the depth at the other skill positions. Especially in Best Ball formats with deep benches, running backs and wide receivers will fly off the board, so make sure you are comfortably set before diving into the QB pool.Running BackAh yes, running back — the position that causes the most ire among fantasy football owners and the one with the most varying strategies on how to draft. Should you go running back early? Should you go zero running back? Should you make sure you draft your handcuffs? Or, should you draft a bunch of starting RB depth as a failsafe for potential injury?There are so many ways to approach the position; however, given that Best Ball drafts are certainly a different animal because of the scoring system and deep benches, you will want to make sure you address this position within the first few rounds. You can certainly stack your depth late, but seeing as running backs are typically among the top scorers in fantasy each season, you do not want to be left in the cold with a bunch of running backs in timeshares while the teams you are up against are rocking a roster of bell cows.With Best Ball being a PPR scoring, you should definitely look for those pass-catching backs, such as James White and Tarik Cohen, in the middle rounds who can put up 70-plus catches and average 10-plus PPR points per week. Their relatively safe weekly floors will help in Best Ball formats during bye weeks or when other players have down games.Ultimately, you can never really draft enough depth at the position regardless of strategy because having that depth could give you a big advantage over the field seeing as you can’t make any roster moves during the season.MORE FROM FANTASY ALARM: Draft Guide | Ultimate NFL Package Wide ReceiverMuch like running back, you need to draft depth at wide receiver — and a lot of it. Fortunately, this season the wide receiver pool is incredibly deep. If you are drafting toward the end of the first round you will have your options of DeAndre Hopkins, Julio Jones, Tyreek Hill, and Davante Adams, all of whom could be the top receiver in fantasy. It is likely a wise strategy to even double-up at the position if you find yourself drafting toward the end of the first round.With the majority of the focus typically being on the running back position in Best Ball drafts you can often get top end receivers falling a few slots in ADP, and that should be used to your advantage. Right now, we are seeing receivers such as Keenan Allen, Calvin Ridley, Allen Robinson, and Odell Beckham Jr. going in the middle rounds of drafts. All can offer up top-20 upside at the position. It also helps that Best Ball leagues are PPR format, which brings added value to those receivers who may struggle to find the end zone. Guys such as Jarvis Landry, Julian Edelman, and Deebo Samuel figure to see plenty of targets and can rack up the points on the catches.Again, depth is the name of the game here, so putting yourself in position to grab enough quality players will give you the edge in a Best Ball league.Tight EndYou should approach the tight end position in Best Ball as you do your standard league draft, which is to say you should wait. Sure, you can use an early pick on a Travis Kelce or George Kittle, but at their respective ADPs, you should really be looking to draft running backs and wide receivers. I would even consider waiting until I have taken my QB1 before addressing the tight end position. Often, there is not much difference in value between the second tier of tight ends, those ranked between TE6 and TE10, and for that reason I will typically wait until about the seventh or eighth round to address the position. This way I have three-to-four RBs and WRs and maybe a QB.The position itself is pretty solid in these middle rounds as well as you find the likes of Rob Gronkwoski, Hunter Henry, Darren Waller, and Austin Hooper going somewhere between the sixth and ninth rounds in most drafts. There are also some late-round tight ends with appealing upside, such as Mike Gesicki, Hayden Hurst, Dallas Goedert, Eric Ebron, and T.J. Hockenson, to name a few, that may be poised for solid years at the position.last_img read more
