By commissioning a temporary summer pavilion by a leading architect every year, the Serpentine Galleries in Londons Kensington Gardens is known as an international site for architectural experimentation.

A second, today extinct, Pavilion also designed by William Kent was situated on a nearby man-made mountain constructed from the dredging of the artificial The Long Water.

The little mountain and house disappeared at some point in history.Save this picture!© Iwan BaanWith this in mind (temporality and the absent house) Barkow Leibinger designed a Pavilion in-the-round standing free with all its sides visible. It is conceived as a series of undulating lines constituting bands and forming part of the structure that is reminiscent of a contour drawing (or the act of drawing a form without lifting the pencil up from the paper and only looking at the subject). The logic of generating a structure from loops of ribbon is a self-generating one and comes from a logic of making that is, by coiling material in your hands round and round then stacking the material upon itself.Save this picture!StructureThe new Summer House is organized as four bands of structure beginning with a bench level attached to the ground, a second band of three C-shaped walls crowned by a third and fourth level which forms a roof that cantilevers a tree-like canopy over the smaller footprint de ned by the undulating loops of bench wood. The horizontal banding recalls the layered coursing of Kent’s Summer House albeit its idiosyncratic nature. The Summer House is constructed with plywood skin on a steel tube frame, materials intrinsically in harmony with the looping geometry of the structure.Save this picture!© Ina ReineckeProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitects of Invention’s Coral Holiday Apartments Design Utilizes Biomimicry to Res…Unbuilt ProjectIt’s All in a Cup of Coffee (or, Indeed, Tea): Does Café Culture Embody the Idea of …Articles Share Serpentine Summer House / Barkow Leibinger Serpentine Summer House / Barkow LeibingerSave this projectSaveSerpentine Summer House / Barkow Leibinger Save this picture!© Iwan Baan+ 23 Share Architects: Barkow Leibinger Area Area of this architecture project Houseslast_img read more

Therefore, the bench had adjourned the hearing to tomorrow, May 13.Advertisement On April 30, the bench had raised several pertinent queries regarding the Centre’s vaccination policy, distribution of essential medicines and oxygen allocation to states. The bench had made a prima facie observation that the Centre’s vaccination was detrimental to the right to health of citizens and required a revisit to make it conform to the mandate of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution. The Court had also suggested that the Centre should explore options like compulsory licensing over COVID vaccines and drugs, and that the vaccines should be centrally procured from manufacturers.Advertisement Advertisement In response, the Centre has filed an affidavit, saying that its vaccination policy was formulated on the basis of widespread consultations with experts and stakeholders, and was therefore conforming with Articles 14 and 21.The centre also resisted judicial review of the policy by saying “any overzealous, though well-meaning judicial intervention may lead to unforeseen and unintended consequences”.Rational & Equitable?

Thicket Power

first_imgThe carols have all been sung. The ornaments have long been safely packed away. That dead Christmas tree, though, can provide one last benefit from the holidays, says a University of Georgia scientist. “The big question is what not to do with it,” said Jeff Jackson, an Extension Service wildlife scientist with the UGA Warnell School of Forest Resources. “What you don’t want to do is take it to the curb.” Jackson said this annual spent-tree problem is a golden opportunity to look at your yard philosophy. “What is a Christmas tree anyway that your yard doesn’t have already?” he asked. “If you had a yard full of Christmas trees, putting out this new one wouldn’t make any difference. “If you have some nice areas of dense thicket, you could put the tree in there and let it decompose,” he said. “Then it could do its thing for the environment, as opposed to taking it to the curb.” A decomposing Christmas tree could provide valuable food for insects and worms, as well as a good hiding place for birds and other creatures. If you’re like most people, though, you had only that single dead tree in an otherwise tidy yard. “Most people have yards where they’ve declared war on thicket cover,” Jackson said. “They get a nice, woody lot, keep all the big trees and get rid of all the small stuff.” But the small stuff is what the wildlife likes. “You can’t get wildlife back with one thing – not even a dead Christmas tree,” he said. Some people try to lure wildlife by putting food on the Christmas tree when they discard it. “Food on a dry Christmas tree is no better than food put somewhere else, like a bird feeder or an existing thicket,” Jackson said. “The food and the tree don’t have to go together.” That old Christmas tree can remind you of better ways to take care of wildlife, Jackson said. Here’s how he’d do it. “I would create an area of untidy thicket where little birds, like cardinals and white-throated sparrows, could go and be happy and comfortable rather than just sitting on the grass,” he said. “It’s a way to save time, effort and money in yard work,” he said. “Instead of taking that tree to the curb, put it there with other branches and yard wastes that don’t have to be taken away. It contributes to a wildlife habitat.” It also contributes to the environment. “You’re recycling it,” Jackson said. “This wonderful, decorative ornament that has turned into garbage can be turned into humus.” Another suggestion is to sink that leftover Christmas tree in a pond for fish to hang out in. Anchor it in a large coffee can with concrete. The concrete weights the tree down so it stands upright on the bottom. These natural fish attractors draw bream and bass into the area and offer a safe haven for young fish. For safety, though, put the tree away from swimming areas. You could chip the tree, too, for mulch you can use in your landscape or stuff a bed for a pet.last_img read more

Arsenal make contact over Nabil Fekir move but may need to sell Mesut Ozil to sign the Frenchman

We are open to discussions, we leave the door ajar for Nabil but for the moment, there are no offers.’A move to Liverpool for the Frenchman was very nearly completed a year ago, but concerns over a knee problem brought talks to an end.Fekir appeared to allay those fears by making 39 appearances in all competitions for Lyon last season, scoring 12 goals.MORE: Arsenal enquire about Manchester United target Harry MaguireMORE: Arsenal target Wilfried Zaha not interested in Manchester United return Arsenal make contact over Nabil Fekir move but may need to sell Mesut Ozil to sign the Frenchmanlast_img read more

MDI Sailors Edge GSA to Win Downeast Fleet Regatta

first_imgCASTINE — It wasn’t all that long ago that high school sailors from eastern Maine could be pretty sure that they would finish in the middle of the fleet at major regattas. The top finishers at those events usually came from private schools with nationally recognized sailing programs.Gutsy when its gusty, Mount Desert Island High School sailing team members Tyler Steel, skipper, and Nick MacCulloch, crew, high side before the start of the Downeast Fleet Racing Invitational regatta that would eventually be called because of high winds. The Trojans won the whole enchilada, the state championship and the regatta, a feat never before accomplished by a Maine team.—JEFF WALLSCASTINE — It wasn’t all that long ago that high school sailors from eastern Maine could be pretty sure that they would finish in the middle of the fleet at major regattas. The top finishers at those events usually came from private schools with nationally recognized sailing programs.That was then. This is now.Last weekend, a team of sailors from Mount Desert Island High School finished first overall in the Downeast Fleet Racing Invitational Regatta. The George Stevens Academy team finished second, just two points behind their island rivals.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textSailed on Smith Cove and hosted jointly by GSA and Maine Maritime Academy, the two-day event drew 131 sailors from 16 private and public secondary schools throughout New England. Weather played a major role in this year’s event. A light to moderate breeze on Saturday allowed the race committee to run 12 races. Sunday was a different story. The wind was so strong that the committee boat, MMA’s 47-foot steel research vessel Friendship, had to be moored at the starting line.Members of the Mount Desert Island High School sailing team proudly display the hardware they earned when they won the Downeast Fleet Racing Invitational and the Maine State Sailing Championships on May 10. Left to right are: Sophia Krevans, Will Dickey, Paige Speight, Andre Stevens-Rosa, Micah Welch, Ben Steel, Shawn Murphy, Finn Jordan, Joe Keif, Tyler Steel, Solomon Krevans, Mae Speight, Zach Dewey, Liana Folger, Marina Karnofsky, Lily Madeira, Nic MacCulloch, and Hannah Welch.—JEFF WALLSWhile both MDI and GSA sailed well on Saturday, their one-two finishing positions were a product of the sportsmanship of the sailors and sailing coach from Tabor Academy, in Marion, Mass. The Tabor team was far and away the fastest on the water. An inadvertent rules violation, though, dropped them to 10th.The Eagles finished ninth overall in Division B. That was enough to leave them two points behind MDI in the overall standings.The Downeast Regatta also determines the Maine State High School Sailing Championship. MDI won its second consecutive state sailing championship, with GSA second. This was the first time that two Hancock County high school sailing teams have finished in the top two spots at the regatta. For more maritime news, pick up a copy of The Ellsworth American.

Hawking Hola

first_img9 September, 2004A beverage packaging company has come up with a unique way to market a new cheap soft drink to lower-income earners – and it’s partnering with a street hawkers body to do it.Beverage Packaging South Africa (SA), which packages wines and a range of hip energy and alcoholic drinks, has launched a carbonated soft drink, Hola, together with the African Chamber of Hawkers and Informal Business (Achib).Hola will retail for R2.99 for a 340ml can – some 64c cheaper than the supermarket price of a can of Coke. BPSA says it expects to compete for 3% of the non-alcoholic beverage market in its target market, in and around Soweto and in Johannesburg’s CBD.There are an estimated 15 000 spaza shops and 25 000 hawkers operating in the target area.The company has already signed up 5 000 hawkers to sell the product.BPSA says its partnership with Achib will allow wholesalers to make at least 20% profit from the sale of the drinks to street vendors. Distributors (or “runners’) to the vendors will be able to make R4 on a case and effectively R400 a load – considered better than other deals runners get for distributing soft drinks.Hawkers are expected to make a 20% mark up profit, selling the drink at just under three rand. They should make at least make R1 on every can sold.The company says while costs are usually added for the transit of the products from manufacturing to the wholesaler then to the retailer, Hola will come straight from manufacture to the hawkers.It says it expects to sell about 25 000 cases in the first month.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Aus Open: Nadal hits top gear in Slam quest

first_imgThe “Rafa Slam” is still alive after Rafael Nadal beat Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-4, 6-3 at the Australian Open on Monday to maintain his chance of owning all four Grand Slam trophies at once.Rafael Nadal celebrates his win over Marin Cilic post their fourth round match at the Australian Open in Melbourne on Monday. APThat’s a feat which hasn’t been achieved since Rod Laver won four majors in 1969.Nadal advanced to a quarterfinal against Spain’s David Ferrer as he attempts to add to the Grand Slam titles he won last year at the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.A favourite for the women’s title here, US Open champion Kim Clijsters, also advanced to the quarter-finals on Monday with a 7-6 (3), 6-2 win over Ekaterina Makarova of Russia.Nadal hasn’t dropped a set through four rounds at Melbourne Park, despite carrying the effects of a virus he picked up two weeks ago in Qatar.”I know how aggressive he can play. I think I played my best match this year here at the Australian Open,” Nadal said. The fourth game went to deuce four times, but Nadal finally prevailed on his service with a forehand smash at the net.In the next game, he set up one of four break points with an amazing get of a Cilic drop shot at the net, sending it across the court to the side line for a winner. He converted for 4-1 and, after serving a double fault on his first set point, Nadal took the opening set when Cilic netted a backhand.advertisementNadal went ahead 4-3 on a service break in the second set, then clinched it when Cilic hit a forehand long. He advanced when Cilic double-faulted on match point.Fifth-seeded Andy Murray also advanced to the quarter-finals, setting up a possible semi-final with Nadal.Kim Clijsters celebrates her win over Ekaterina Makarova. APBut before that, he’ll face an unexpected quarter-final rival after 22-year-old Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov had an upset 1-6, 6-3, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2 win over fourth-seeded Robin Soderling.No. 7 David Ferrer set up a quarter-final against fellow Spaniard Nadal with his 4-6, 6-2, 6-3, 6-4 win over 20-year-old Canadian qualifier Milos Raonic, who’d upset No. 10 Mikhail Youzhny.Soderling dominated the opening set but couldn’t keep it up against Dolgopolov, who is making his fourth appearance in a major and was coming off a five-set win over former Australian Open finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.Clijsters held two set points in the 12th game of the opening set on Makarova’s service which the Russian player fended off. When it went to a tie-breaker, Clijsters’ experience came through and the Belgian dominated, winning the set when Makarova hit a forehand wide.No. 2-ranked Vera Zvonareva continued her roll toward a third consecutive Grand Slam final with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Iveta Benesova. She will face No. 25 Petra Kvitova, who rallied to beat No. 22 Flavia Pennetta 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. No. 12 Agnieszka Radwanska beat China’s Peng Shuai 7-5, 3-6, 7-5 and will meet Clijsters in the quarters.last_img read more

Alcohol policies fizzle for Canadian governments as harms overflow reports

first_imgVICTORIA — Two studies say the federal and provincial governments must do more to reduce alcohol consumption after determining it is now more damaging than tobacco use.As part of the Canadian Alcohol Policy Evaluation project, researchers graded the federal, provincial and territorial governments on policy efforts to reduce alcohol-related harms.Tim Stockwell, director with the University of Victoria’s Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research, says the federal government earned a 38 per cent grade while the provinces and territories collectively achieved 44 per cent.He says Ontario scored the highest with a C, while British Columbia following closely behind with a D-plus.But Stockwell says Premier Doug Ford’s move to lower the price of alcohol with his “buck-a-beer” legislation is sending Ontario backwards.Norman Geisbrecht, a senior scientist at the Toronto-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, says while the impact of alcohol is more noticeable in accidents, behaviour and certain chronic diseases, there may also be an indirect impact on people’s mental health.
