The house is located in the historical center of town, very close to the church and the main street. Following the regulations and heritage protection requirements, the main street façade has been designed with the local materials and construction characteristics: stone façade, balconies in vertical proportion, wooden shutters and Venetian blinds, iron railings and inclined roof with Arabic tiles and ceramic cornice.Save this picture!© Jordi MestrichThe house consists of a ground floor and two floors with sloping roof. At the back, an interior courtyard has been created with large openings that bathe the spaces with natural light and with an enclosure system made up of vertical slats that fold in an accordion shape, generating multiple options in the composition of the rear façade.Save this picture!© Jordi MestrichSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Jordi MestrichThe common areas are organized around this patio: the living-dining room and the kitchen on the ground floor, the hall and stairs on the first floor, and a multi-purpose room on the second floor. The bedrooms are on the street façade.The main structure combines pillars and metal beams with concrete beams and the slabs are made of concrete joist and exposed ceramic vaults.Save this picture!© Jordi MestrichOn the ground floor we find the main access to the house from the street, as well as the garage, a large living room that opens to both the interior courtyard and the street façade, thus allowing cross-ventilation, and the kitchen-office that also opens to the inner courtyard.Save this picture!SectionThrough oak stairs we reach the first floor where we find a bright hall, open to the courtyard, from where we access the bedrooms.Through a metal structure staircase with oak steps we access the second floor where we find the master bedroom, a full bathroom with closet and a large diaphanous room with a small loft above the bathroom.Save this picture!© Jordi MestrichA decision was made to leave the structure exposed, showing how the house is built and giving importance to the construction materials: steel, concrete and ceramic vaults. Equally, natural materials have been chosen for the interior finishes such as the oak of the stairs and the bespoke furniture in the living room, the birch for the paneling of the access areas to the bedrooms, and the furniture in bathrooms and kitchen.Save this picture!© Jordi MestrichOn the ground floor, to give continuity to the polished concrete pavement of the interior courtyard, a microcemento pavement has been chosen which has also been used as the floor in the bathrooms.Save this picture!© Jordi MestrichProject gallerySee allShow lessThe World’s Oldest Piece of Architecture Tells a New Story About How Civilization De…Architecture NewsBlack is Back / 33bY ArchitectureSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeespairoux arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesEls GuiametsSpainPublished on August 28, 2018Cite: “House in El Priorat / espairoux arquitectura” [Casa en el Priorat / espairoux arquitectura] 28 Aug 2018.

General strike keeps French Guiana shut down

first_imgThe French government has said openly that it won’t make any real concessions to the demands of those on general strike in Guiana, a territory on the northern coast of South America, whose quarter-million population is legally French. Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve claimed that the demands of the coalition Pou LaGwiyann Dékolé (Let Guiana Take Off) guiding the struggle are “unrealistic.”The PLGD, together with the trade union movement, wants recognition of special status for French Guiana and 2.5 billion euros in emergency aid delivered immediately, before a new French government takes over in mid-May.It appears that the general strike, which began March 27, will continue indefinitely. While the PLGD relaxed the roadblocks on April 9, it issued an order saying that all traffic — truck, auto, bike, foot — would be restricted starting Monday morning, April 10.Earlier on April 6, the PLGD held a press conference in Cayenne, the capital, where each of the coalition’s various components — health, education, transportation, civil society — expressed their particular demands and pledged to continue the strike until all were satisfied.On April 8, French Guiana’s authorities tried to hold a meeting about resolving the strike without any PLGD representatives being present. Members of 500 Brothers, a people’s militia active in the PLGD, tried to force their way in.A physical confrontation occurred for the first time during the current strike. The cops’ second in command wound up in the hospital. The cops fired tear gas canisters, which were thrown back at them.After the confrontation died down, people brought out hammocks and chairs onto the lawn of the government building and stayed the night, showing everyone that the struggle was far from over.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

County Sheriff’s officials said.Monday’s reward was initiated via a motion by Supervisor Kathryn Barger, whose district includes Altadena.“This was an unprovoked and heinous act perpetrated against a law enforcement member who has dedicated their profession to serving our community,” Barger said. “We continue to ask so much of law enforcement and we must stand by them in their time of need.”The deputy was on patrol in a marked car when she came upon a “crime in progress,” according to Deputy Grace Medrano of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.“As she approached the group in her vehicle, two males, believed to be Hispanic, targeted the deputy,” Medrano said in a written statement. “The first suspect produced a firearm and fired several gunshots in the deputy’s direction. The deputy was not injured. Both suspects fled on foot and are still outstanding.”“It is still unclear what type of crime was being committed at the time of the shooting,” Medrano added.The shooting is being investigated as an attempted murder of a deputy, officials said.“The stray bullets hit a structure and could have seriously injured or killed an innocent bystander,” according to a statement from Barger’s office.Anyone with information was urged to contact Detective C. Gutierrez of the Sheriff’s Operation Safe Streets Bureau at (626) 798-1131. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A.

Under Massachusetts law, the bank or foreclosing party must either be the mortgage holder on record or hold the mortgage through valid assignment prior to publishing the notice of foreclosure sale.As part of the settlement, the four banks agreed to pay a combined $2.7 million to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Of that money, $700,000 was allocated to the AG’s Local Consumer Aid Fund, and the remaining $2 million was paid to the Commonwealth’s General Fund. The banks also agreed to provide non-monetary assistance to help borrowers resolve their title defects that resulted from improper foreclosures conducted after December 1, 2007. The bank will review each complaint and determine if the title defect resulted from a void foreclosure, and if so, the bank will provide the documentation to facilitate the clearing of the title so that the homeowner may either pursue refinancing or sell the property.GMAC Mortgage, which filed for bankruptcy in 2012, was named as one of the defendants in the case; the AG’s office is continuing to negotiate a settlement with them, according to Healey’s announcement.

We, therefore, find it appropriate to constitute a Special Committee comprising of the following Secretaries at national, as well as State, level to look into the prevailing circumstances and immediately determine the necessity of the continuation of the restrictions in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir”. Even after such directions, the internet restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir were extended, without the formation of Special Committee, stated the contempt plea This, according to FMP, amounted to “willful disobedience” of the SC directions. After the SC verdict of May 11, the J&K administration extended the internet curbs thrice – on May 27, June 17 and July 8 – citing the threat of cross-border terrorism. The administration also claimed that 2G internet speed has not caused any impediment to COVID-19 control steps, online education or e-commerce. Along with the contempt plea, FMP has also filed an application for immediate restoration of 4G services in the region, stating that the denial of the same amid the pandemic and lockdown has resulted in disrupting medical services, online education and e-commerce activities. The Central government had imposed a complete communications blackout in the erstwhile state of J&K in August 2019, right after the abrogation of Article 370. Five months later in January 2020, on the basis of a Supreme Court order, the services were partially restored, only at 2G speed for mobile users. Access was provided only to a selected “white-listed” sites, and social media was completely blocked. The Supreme Court had observed that indefinite suspension of the internet is not permissible and restrictions on the internet have to follow the principles of proportionality under Article 19(2). The blockade on social media was lifted on March 4, but the speed was retained as 2G for mobile data.Click here to download the counter affidavit of MHARead the Counter Affidavit o MHA Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
