Milton Ramos design for the project 53 dates back to December 27th, 1972, however the house was finished only in 1974. The Architect Milton Ramos was an important collaborator to Oscar Niemeyer on the design and detailing of some of his most iconic buildings in Brasília, such as the Itamaraty palace and the National Theater.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Joana FrançaFor 40 years, this residence belonged to the same family, although it has not avoided interventions that has altered the author’s initial concept. The reflective pool was covered by soil, a fence was placed in the external vestibule (preventing any direct access to the main door) and the interiors of the house – once in exposed concrete –  were covered by layers of mortar, plaster and white paint. There were other small interventions made in the windows, door openings and wall covering, however the measures mentioned before were the ones which most changed the original design. Save this picture!© Joana FrançaSave this picture!© Joana FrançaBLOCO´s project for the house restoration and retrofit has adapted the house to the new owner’s necessities as well as it has recovered some aspects from the original concept: free flow between spaces, omnipresent exposed concrete usage and water usage. These aspects are well-known in others public designs by the architect Milton Ramos and they were wisely adapted to the residential scale in this project in Brasília.Save this picture!© Joana FrançaIn this intervention, the original Ipê wooden floor was recovered and the exposed concrete on the interiors of the house was exposed and restored. The reflective pool in front of the house was rebuilt (once covered by soil in previous interventions) and the existing fence was removed in order to free the main access, as it was intended in the original project. Existing bathrooms were adapted and divided for the creation of suites, the central restroom was made bigger and the kitchen gained a new access to the dining room. All these measures adapted the house according to the owner’s necessities and they recovered some aspects from the original concept.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe “Four Pillars” of B.V.

$25k competition for campaign to expose failures of high medicine costs

first_img$25k competition for campaign to expose failures of high medicine costs AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement The Public Health programme of the Open Society Foundations is inviting campaigners in Europe to pitch for up to $25,000 to run a public campaign that will challenge the arguments used to justify high drug prices and support the profit-maximising model of pharmaceutical research and development.The Foundations are particularly keen to hear from campaigners in Spain, Greece and the UK.Why a campaign?The Open Society Foundations say that rising prices that threaten equitable access to medicines and treatment are no longer limited to patients in low- and middle-income countries: they are now affecting patients in some of the world’s wealthiest countries, where governments are having to ration treatment.OSF claim that “the current private, profit-driven and patent-based model of pharmaceutical innovation isn’t achieving what it was designed for: innovation to advance public health”. They point to the launch of “unaffordable” new hepatitis C and cancer treatments.The Foundations also question why there is still a lack of drugs to treat Ebola and multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.The Public Health programme is therefore seeking proposals from networks, coalitions and individual organisations who will design and implement a public campaign to challenge this situation and show that  anew approach is possible.It is looking for “creative and courageous ideas that expose the failure of the current profit-based model of pharmaceutical R&D, and highlight the need for an alternative approach”. It is open to a range of suggestions, ranging from public stunts to short-term campaigns.It expects proposals to seek up to $25,000 for a campaign that would last from 6-12 months. The campaign could start as early as December 2015.How to applyThose interested in applying should send a letter of intent of no more than three pages to Azzi Momenghalibaf by 20 July 2015.

‘Angels’ in Our Midst Donate $100,000 to Pasadena Senior Center

first_img Community News Top of the News During the last few days of 2020, Akila Gibbs, executive director of the Pasadena Senior Center, anxiously watched as revenue streams dried up during the pandemic, even as the need for the center’s life-saving services grew exponentially for thousands of older adults.Instead of a bustling place filled with hundreds of people each weekday and a fully booked calendar of weekend rentals for its banquet hall, the center closed its physical doors as it pivoted to delivering many of its services online and through various other methods.Daily lunches were now delivered to older adults’ homes, hundreds of daily phone calls were made by center staff and volunteers to check on people who live alone, and classes and club meetings were transformed into Zoom experiences.As an independent, donor-supported nonprofit, the Pasadena Senior Center endured a decrease in donations at a time when every dollar could make a vital difference in the lives of older adults.That day in 2020, when Gibbs began another of her bi-monthly “Coffee with Akila” virtual events, she was exhausted from long working hours, worried about finances, but excited to engage in this more intimate connection with everyone who signed up for the small group chat.Little did she know an “angel” had joined the conversation, someone who was formerly on the board of directors of a small, little known foundation that would soon send a check for $100,000 to be used for whatever the center needed.“I was moved to tears. It was like a gift dropped from the heavens,” said Gibbs. “Only two percent of foundations in the country fund programs for older adults, despite a growing older population, and this donation was unrestricted. I was beside myself with excitement and couldn’t wait to tell the staff about this generous gift.”The mystery person who dropped in for “Coffee with Akila” was DeWayne McMullin, a former Navigage Foundation board member who now is the board’s business representative and actively searches for entities that make huge differences in the lives of older adults.The foundation was created after the permanent closure of many independent, nonprofit senior centers in the country that serve older adults. Foundation leadership wanted to continue the mission of serving older adults in a different way and decided to provide funds to nonprofits whose missions align with theirs.After the virtual coffee chat with Gibbs, McMullin contacted Navigage Foundation’s board chair, Jim Rock, a real estate professional known for personally supporting the greater Pasadena community.“We were blown away by the vast array of services provided by the Pasadena Senior Center,” Rock said.The gift enables the center to continue its work during the pandemic, including the delivery of 500 special meals during the holidays and daily boxed lunches, offering fitness and other classes online, and managing the 30 percent increase of older adults signed up for the Telephone Reassurance Program that regularly puts volunteers in touch with older adults in isolation to address social and emotional needs.There is another part of the story, this one about how good works never go unappreciated and whose impacts go on and on.“I had an amazing assistant who worked for one of my companies many years ago and took it upon herself to combine all the email lists of all entities that serve older adults in the greater Los Angeles area,” said McMullin. “When she left for another job, the combined list was transferred to me. Because I receive the Pasadena Senior Center newsletter by email, I decided to get to know more about PSC and signed up for a Zoom meeting where I found myself having “Coffee with “Akila.”“DeWayne McMullin and the Navigage Foundation are living examples of what true generosity is,” Gibbs said. “They are angels.”To make a donation to the Pasadena Senior Center, visit and click on the orange Donate button.For more information about online activities and other programs and services of the Pasadena Senior Center, visit the website or call (626) 794-4331.The center, at 85 E. Holly St., is an independent, nonprofit organization that has served adults 50 and older for more than 60 years. Doors are open Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for social services and other critical programs and services for older adults in need. Masks and social distancing are required.

The origin of Jupiter’s outer radiation belt

first_imgThe intense inner radiation belt at Jupiter (>50 MeV at 1.5 RJ) is generally accepted to be created by radial diffusion of electrons from further away from the planet. However, this requires a source with energies that exceed 1 MeV outside the orbit of the moon Io at 5.9 RJ, which has never been explained satisfactorily. Here we test the hypothesis that this source population could be formed from a very soft energy spectrum, by particle injection processes and resonant electron acceleration via whistler mode chorus waves. We use the British Antarctic Survey Radiation Belt Model to calculate the change in the electron flux between 6.5 and 15 RJ; these are the first simulations at Jupiter combining wave particle interactions and radial diffusion. The resulting electron flux at 100 keV and 1 MeV lies very close to the Galileo Interim Radiation Electron model spectrum after 1 and 10 days, respectively. The primary driver for the increase in the flux is cyclotron resonant acceleration by chorus waves. A peak in phase space density forms such that inside L≈9 radial diffusion transports electrons toward Jupiter, but outside L≈9 radial diffusion acts away from the planet. The results are insensitive to the softness of the initial energy spectrum but do depend on the value of the flux at the minimum energy boundary. We conclude by suggesting that the source population for the inner radiation belt at Jupiter could indeed be formed by wave-particle interactions.last_img read more

The pilot was identified at Scot Ames, Jr., 24, from Pekin, Ind., near Louisville.The student was part of the Japanese Air Self Defense Force. His name has not yet been released. But, Col. Seth Graham of the 50th Flying Training Squadron, of Columbus, Miss., said in a Sunday news conference the man was 25 years old.Pekin was stationed in Columbus, Miss.The Air Force is investigating the cause of the crash. That determination could take months.The plane was a T-38 trainer.“Every weekend it’s part of our syllabus for our students to do what is called a cross-country training mission where they fly away from Columbus around the area to get training at other airfields and how to spend the night somewhere and recover their aircraft,” said Graham.He was not familiar with Ames’ flight plan or course, nor was he knowledgeable about the duo’s mission.Graham said everyone on the squadron is family and their loss will be keenly felt.

Prolific baker’s first book

first_imgClive Mellum, a master baker for more than 47 years, has seen his first book published. My life with baking, 50 years on is, in Mellum’s own words, “a guide to the techniques and processes of fermentation, how yeasts of all types work, when to add fats etc. And it’s about my life in baking, the baking industry, the answers and solutions to the questions, problems and issues I have encountered in my baking career.”Mellum, who has taught hundreds of professional and amateur bakers, joined the baking industry at the age of 11. In 1966 he was taken on as an apprentice, and went on to own and run his own bakery – he often made the bread at night and delivered it door-to-door the next morning.Having gone on to represent the flour milling industry, Mellum also ran workshops for up-and-coming bakeries, as well as people who wanted to learn how to make bread “the proper way”. He has taught people ranging in age from four to 85, worked in schools and with young people, and has even taught baking to chefs at Buckingham Palace.Having been taught the art of fermentation only to experience its decline, Mellum worked with the independent milling industry to resurrect this. He now works as an independent bread consultant, and campaigns for real bread.Mellum said: “This book has been 15 years in the making, and I have many people who have attended my workshops to thank for it coming to fruition.”The book costs £12.50, from Else Family Butchers in Stalbridge, Dorset, or Amazon. It will be available in Kindle format on Amazon later this year.last_img read more Ranks the 2014 Tony Contenders For Best Musical!

first_img BROADWAY.COM SHOUTOUT BEST BOOK OF A MUSICAL Left: Robert L. Freedman, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder — For a musical about knocking off an entire family, this Broadway newcomer’s script is wildly fun. Right: Chad Beguelin, Aladdin — Incorporating some classic lines from the original movie (“Do you trust me?”) and some funny new material, a nomination for this book seems like a lock. BEST ORIGINAL SCORE Left to Right: Warren Carlyle, After Midnight — After getting snubbed for A Christmas Story, Chaplin and Edwin Drood in 2013, this could be Carlyle’s year! Steven Hoggett and Kelly Devine, Rocky — The one-two punch of boxing choreography by Hoggett and more traditional choreography by Devine could be a Tony knockout. Casey Nicholaw, Aladdin — Audiences leap to their feet after the showstopping number “Friend Like Me,” and it could be enough to get Nicholaw his fourth nomination for Best Choreography. ALSO POSSIBLE A Night with Janis Joplin, Soul Doctor. Andrew Lippa, Big Fish — From the whimsical tune “Fight the Dragons” to the heartwrenching ballad “I Don’t Need a Roof,” we’re still humming the score from this now-closed Broadway musical. BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL Left to Right: Beautiful: The Carole King Musical  — This heartfelt bio musical based on the life of the singer-songwriter is a strong contender, but a Tony nod isn’t necessarily in the bag. Bullets Over Broadway — Is this romp based on the riotous Woody Allen movie dazzling enough to score a nomination? It could happen, but it’s not a sure bet. If/Then  — A new collaboration by Pulitzer Prize-winning composers Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey could be just the ticket to some Tony love. Rocky — He might be an underdog in the ring, but the sweet and inspiring story of Rocky Balboa is a real contender in this year’s race. IN THE MIX Left: Darko Tresnjak, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder — From an ice-skating scene to an attack of killer bees, this musical’s clever staging is sure to score a nomination for Best Direction. Right: Casey Nicholaw, Aladdin — With magical moments in “Friend Like Me” and “A Whole New World” you have to see to believe, the Tony-winning director of The Book of Mormon has a nom in the bag. FRONTRUNNERS FRONTRUNNERS Left to Right: Chad Beguelin and Alan Menken, Aladdin (not pictured: the late Howard Ashman) — The film won an Oscar for Best Original Score in 1992, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the revamped score has an edge on the competition. Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, If/Then — After winning the hearts of the Pulitzer Prize committee with their last hit Next to Normal, this duo could snag a nomination. Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics), Rocky — It’s starkly different from their Tony-winning Ragtime score, but this composing duo still has a shot at the gold. Left: Steven Lutvak and Robert L. Freedman, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder — This delightfully silly operetta by two Broadway newbies couldn’t be more charming. Right: Jason Robert Brown, The Bridges of Madison County — It’s vibrant, it’s ethereal, it’s haunting, it’s gorgeous. And it’s going to get a Tony nomination. Left to Right: Douglas McGrath, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical — The story behind the music of Carole King is heartwarming and packed with silly one-liners, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the script snagged a nomination. Thomas Meehan and Sylvester Stallone, Rocky — The script has been pared down significantly from the original 1976 movie, but this tender and funny book packs a punch. Brian Yorkey, If/Then — Yorkey brings both humor and heartbreak to two dual stories of a thirty-something woman living in New York in this new musical. Marsha Norman, The Bridges of Madison County — The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright’s understated book lets the songs be the star of this musical, but that doesn’t mean it will be overlooked for a nod. John August, Big Fish — August wrote the heartfelt film adaptation of Big Fish, and his first Broadway book might also score him his first nomination. ALSO POSSIBLE A Night with Janis Joplin, Big Fish, First Date, Soul Doctor. Austin Winsberg, First Date — This fizzy tuner had us rolling in the aisles last fall, and we hope its punchline packed book won’t be forgotten on nomination day. BEST MUSICAL Left to Right: Cabaret, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Les Miserables and Violet Four eligible shows, four slots. Will they all get nominated, or will one get left in the dust? Luckily, they’re all strong contenders in this year’s race. Cabaret is an exact replica of the 1998 Tony-winning revival, which could annoy some nominators. Les Miz, on the other hand, is a fresh take on a classic. Meanwhile, Hedwig and Violet are both off-Broadway hits finally getting a shot on the Main Stem. Our guess is that all four shows will get honored.  IN THE MIX ALSO POSSIBLE Marc Bruni, Beautiful; Michael Greif, If/Then; Susan Stroman, Bullets Over Broadway; Susan Stroman, Big Fish; Leigh Silverman, Violet BEST CHOREOGRAPHY BROADWAY.COM SHOUTOUT The Bridges of Madison County — We’re smitten with this sweeping and new musical, featuring a lush score by Jason Robert Brown and a heartbreaking performance by Kelli O’Hara. Stay tuned for more Tony cheat sheets! ALSO POSSIBLE First Date Laurence Connor and James Powell, Les Miserables — The directing duo’s brand new take on a Broadway favorite, complete with high-tech projections (and no turntable), gets our vote. BEST DIRECTION OF A MUSICAL FRONTRUNNERS FRONTRUNNERS ALSO POSSIBLE Josh Prince, Beautiful; Larry Keigwin, If/Then BROADWAY.COM SHOUTOUT FRONTRUNNERS The spring season on Broadway has officially come to a close, and you know what that means: It’s Tony time! We can’t wait to see who will be nominated on April 29, and after painstakingly analyzing every musical of the season (just kidding, it was so much fun), we’ve created a Tony forecast, including frontrunners, hopefuls and a Shout Out to one show we hope the Tony nominators won’t forget. Check out our Tony cheat sheet for the top musical categories! Susan Stroman for Big Fish or Bullets Over Broadway — A three-time Tony winner for Best Choreography, Stroman might be earning another nod for either her joyous fall musical or current gangster tap extravaganza. Or both! BROADWAY.COM SHOUTOUT BROADWAY.COM SHOUTOUT Left to Right: A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder — A clever book, a catchy Gilbert-and-Sullivan-esque score and a winning premise? Sounds like a guaranteed Tony nomination. Aladdin — Every bit as magical as the 1992 movie, the Disney crowd-pleaser is sure to snag a number of nods on nomination day, including a coveted slot in the Best Musical category. After Midnight  — Using existing music from Duke Ellington and his contemporaries, the jazzy revue scored raves among critics and crowds alike, and it’s got a definite shot to win big this season. IN THE MIX Left to Right: Warren Carlyle, After Midnight — The vibrant world of the Cotton Club comes alive in this new revue, but a nod for Carlyle isn’t necessarily a lock. Michael Mayer, Hedwig and the Angry Inch — The internationally ignored song stylist is ignored no more, thanks to Mayer’s inventive new updates—is it enough to snag a nomination? Alex Timbers, Rocky — The 20-minute fight scene alone should be enough to get Timbers on the ballot, but the competition is rough! Bartlett Sher, The Bridges of Madison County — Beautiful stagescapes make Sher’s direction a contender, but will it stand out from the crowd? Spencer Liff, Hedwig and the Angry Inch — The program calls it “musical staging,” but Neil Patrick Harris’ frenetic and aerobic dance moves definitely deserve a mention.

This Is Our Youth Begins on Broadway

first_img View Comments This Is Our Youth Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 4, 2015 Related Shows The Broadway revival of Kenneth Lonergan’s This Is Our Youth begins performances on August 18. The production stars Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin and Tavi Gevinson in their Broadway debuts. Opening night is set for September 11 at the Cort Theatre.This Is Our Youth chronicles 48 hours in the lives of spoiled, drugged-out, rich kids living in Manhattan in the 1980s. Cera plays Warren, a depressed 19-year-old who has stolen $15,000 from his tycoon father, while Culkin plays his drug-dealer friend Dennis and Gevinson appears as Jessica, a perceptive fashion student.The production, directed by Anna D. Shapiro, premiered earlier this year at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Upstairs Theatre. This Is Our Youth, starring Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hamilton and Missy Yager, originally opened at the INTAR Theatre on October 26, 1996. The show, directed by Mark Brokaw, played 22 performances, drawing rave reviews and garnering attention for its young cast and playwright. The production was revived off-Broadway just two years later by the Second Stage Theatre company on November 3, 1998, this time featuring Mark Rosenthal in place of Josh Hamilton, playing 240 performances before closing on May 2, 1999.last_img read more
