The budget, as well as the material and labour resources in the area, are limited. The project is located in the bay of Quinched, Isla Grande de Chiloé, in southern Chile, 1,200 km from Santiago. The wooden churches and the stilt houses covered with wood shingles and corrugated tin of different colours are part of the identity of the territory.Save this picture!© Amelia OrtúzarSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Amelia OrtúzarThe solution is also simple: The house is designed with the construction logic and materials of the area where it is located. In this way, an informal builder in the area took three months to build the project, using materials that were “at hand” and building in the way he has done all his life.Save this picture!© Amelia OrtúzarThe house is modulated on the basis of plywood panels of 1.22m x 2.44m supported by a structure of upright wooden beams in the manner of local construction methods. The structure is separated from the ground by means of stilts forming a prism of 4.88m wide x 14.64m long x 2.44m high. The private program (bedrooms) is separated from the public program (livingroom) by a central terrace that is protected between these two volumes.Save this picture!© Amelia OrtúzarEverything is covered with a large roof, with eaves of one meter to mitigate the heavy and frequent rains that characterize the zone. The walls are covered with the same zinc as the roof to minimize leaks, recognizing the harshness of the environment. The terrace is a “half tempered” space between the harsh outdoor climate and the cosy interior. The shape, materiality and colour give the house a character that is typical to the landscape of the zone, while still unique in its particularities and beauty.Save this picture!© Amelia OrtúzarSave this picture!ScantlingSave this picture!© Amelia OrtúzarProject gallerySee allShow lessAlbia Building / Landa + Martínez ArquitectosSelected ProjectsRed House / Nelson ResendeSelected Projects Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: AutoDesk, CUBIERTAS NACIONALES Quinched House / 2712 / asociados CopyAbout this office2712 / asociadosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesQuinchedChilePublished on August 16, 2019Cite: “Quinched House / 2712 / asociados” [Casa quinched / 2712 / asociados] 16 Aug 2019.

  • Wednesday’s Budget to reveal fate of sector’s SITR & CBILS campaigns

Government should work with social investors, who disproportionately fund organisations in areas of deprivation, to provide accessible and affordable financing solutions. While charities, social enterprises, and community businesses have demonstrated remarkable resilience during this crisis, they generate less surpluses than mainstream SMEs and so will need financial support that is appropriate for their specific business models.” Advertisementcenter_img As well as the letter, other action has included a meeting with Kevin Hollinrake, MP and Chair of the cross-party group on Fair Business Banking, which saw Hollinrake table three questions in parliament last month.The second campaign concerns Social Investment Tax Relief, which enables investors to get 30% off the cost of their investment off their next income tax bill – so if an investor put £100 into an eligible organisation they would get £30 back from government and only £70 of their capital would be at risk. Social enterprises, charities and community businesses have so far raised £15 million using the relief.The SAVE SITR campaign asks for the Government to extend the Social Investment Tax Relief ‘sunset clause’ for a further five years. With 90% of investments taking place outside of the capital, the campaign partners, Big Society Capital, Social Enterprise UK, Resonance and Co-operatives UK, believe extending the tax relief is a simple way for the Government to support its own Levelling Up agenda.With this campaign, Big Society Capital Chair Sir Harvey McGrath met Treasury Minister Jesse Norman to discuss the issues last summer and its team are in touch with the officials working on the relief. Last week they also briefed the special advisors in Treasury via email.Social Enterprise UK estimates that saving and expanding SITR would create 13,500 more jobs and help 4,000 social enterprises over the next five years. In a blog, Big Society Capital Social Sector Engagement Director Mel Mills said that while SITR isn’t perfect, scrapping it in the middle of an economic crisis with no alternative failed to deliver on the Government’s promises to support the UK’s social sector.

They make the effort to spend extended time together each year because doing so fills a longing in their hearts.The sisters grew up Gondreville, a small village in France. For a time in their childhoods, Gonderville was a safe place, a warm and caring place. Then in 1939, things changed. War came, the Germans came, and there was no safe place.“Churches, hospitals and schools were supposed to be safe places but they were not,” said Yvonne, who was just over five years old and three years older than her sister, when war came to their village.  “My mother had seen troubled times coming but nothing like what came to us.” By Jaine Treadwell By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits WAR STORIES: Sisters recount hiding in France during WWII Jacqueline Miller is an admitted prissy “yankee.”Yvonne Jacques is a self-proclaimed country “rebel.”The sisters laugh at the differences between them. Then, the mood quickly changes as they recall their childhood days in France during World War II. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Yvonne said conditions in the prisons were so dire that, as the war stretched into years, the prisoners would eat rats and dogs and human flesh.To close the road to Gondreville, the Germans commanded young French soldiers to cut down huge trees with crosscut saws and pile them on the road.“When the soldiers had cut all the trees, the Germans shot and killed them all,” Yvonne said. “You cannot know what it was like, so horrible. Our father was in the French Resistance and we were always so afraid for him. Once we were playing outside and the Gestapo was coming to all the houses. We ran to tell our father and he told us to go back and play. The Germans would know he was there if we were in the house.”The sisters have haunting memories of a baby being nailed to a church door.“The Germans took the baby and crucified it because the mother could not tell them where her husband was,” Yvonne said. “There were prostitutes who would tell on their own people, give them up. After the war, the prostitutes were rounded up and their heads were shaved and tar was put on their heads so everybody would know about what they had done.”The sisters said walking anywhere in or around the village was treacherous because mines were everywhere.“People would be walking and step on a mine and be blown away,” she said. “Planes would fly over and drop candy in pretty paper and children would run to get the candy bomb. It would explode. So many children were hurt and died.”Because there were no doctors, the women would close wounds with needles and thread. “They would sew people up, like they were pieces of cloth,” Jackie said. “There is nothing that can relate to living through a war. We were in the cellar all the years of our young childhood. Always watching for the Gestapo and listening for airplanes and running at the sound of sirens. Always sitting with the lights off and fearing for ourselves and our father.”The sisters said no child should have the knowledge of a baby being placed in a bakery oven or nailed to a church door. Those are things too horrible to know and too painful to remember.One day, in August 1944, the church bells in Gondreville, France begin to ring. The nightmare was beginning to be over. The townspeople came out of hiding and rejoiced in the streets.    “The Americans came in jeeps and gave us candy,” Jackie said. “We were singing and so happy. We had a ball. And, our soldiers came home.”Yvonne had contracted rheumatic fever and was so weak she could not stand. “When I saw my uncle, my favorite uncle, come walking toward our house, I could not wait to get to him,” she said. “I started crawling to him. Like a baby, I crawled to him.”But among the happiness, there was still sadness for those who did not come home from that war.It was five years after the war ended that one of the sisters’ cousins was to come home in a casket.“The locks on the casket were covered in melted wax. Our aunt want to open the casket to see if it was really her son,” Yvonne said. “She melted the wax and opened the casket. Inside there were three skulls. She melted the wax back over the locks. The casket is buried in the cemetery in Gondreville with three unknown soldiers inside.”The sisters tell their story because it is important not forget that the people of France suffered greatly during WWII. That they had no freedoms for five years and that many lives were lost and others destroyed.“When people see movies about World War II, we want them to know that it’s not a story. It happened and happened so terribly,” they said. “War is horrible. Just as we, in Gondreville, walked arm-in-arm in the streets when the war was over, we must all walk together so war like that never happens in our world again.” For the next five years, Yvonne, Jackie and their family shared their root cellar with neighbors, 26 in all, as the hiding place from the Germans and as a bomb shelter when the sirens sounded.“From the kitchen, there were dark, steep steps that led into the cellar,” Yvonne said. “We could go outside and play for a while but we did not go to school because it was not safe to be there. When we heard the sirens, we knew to run inside and hide. From 1939 until 1944, that is the way we lived, running and hiding.”Because their mother was forward thinking, she had a storehouse of home-canned food in the cellar – vegetables and even rabbit meat. “But we had no milk, no bread and it was two walking hours to the next village where we could possibly get those rationed things,” Jackie said. “We would go at late night, after midnight.  Between the villages there were three concentration camps and the prisoners were hungry – starving. They slept outside and, as we walked along the back roads, we would run and throw carrots over the fence to the prisoners and they would run and push to grab them because they were so hungry.” Messenger photo/jaine treadwellJacqueline Miller and Yvonne Jacques, sisters from the village of Gondreville, France, reminisce on the dark times of World War II. The sisters lived in a cellar for five years with 26 neighbors afraid to step out in the daylight for risk of being tortured or killed by German soldiers.The sisters say it is important to tell their story so that people never forget the horrors that occurred in those years and learn so that those same mistakes are not repeated.

  • Deaths, hospitalizations and at least 68 COVID-19 cases after week-long church event

    first_imgSunnyGraph/iStockBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News (CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — At least two people are dead, four hospitalized and at least 68 positive cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed following a weeklong convocation event at a church in North Carolina.The week of events took place at the United House of Prayer for All People in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the numbers include attendees and close contacts of people who attended the services at the church. Authorities and health officials have said they are still trying to track down 94 more close contacts of the people who tested positive.Health officials in Mecklenburg County have said they have contacted local health departments in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, New Jersey and New York to warn them of possible cases tied to the events.“We are aware that there were convocation activities throughout the week,” the church said in a statement obtained by ABC News. “Following initial case investigations, it was determined that the early cases were most likely connected to the larger events held on Saturday and Sunday. As the case count has grown, we are aware of additional cases likely connected to smaller events that occurred during the week. We are currently attempting to trace contacts for all cases who participated in any of the activities. Out of an abundance of caution, we recommend anyone who participated in any of these events to closely monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and get tested as soon as possible.”One of the people who died was a resident at Madison Saints Paradise Independent Living and at least six of the people who tested positive live at the same assisted living facility in Charlotte, North CarolinaMeanwhile, Dr. Raynard Washington, deputy health director of Mecklenburg County, has warned those who attended the church events to not attend any further gatherings.“I have advised them to not have any gatherings in the coming weeks because we don’t know how far the spread has gone at this point, and it is not a good idea to reconvene those same groups of people,” said Washington.One man, who asked to remain anonymous, told ABC News’ affiliate station WSOC-TV in Charlotte that he didn’t feel comfortable going to the event.“I decided because of health reasons in my family, I wasn’t going there,” he said. “It should have never been held. It was just too many people.”Vilma Leake, who has been on the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners since 2008 and attends the United House of Prayer for All People, called on a leader of the West Charlotte House of Worship to address the board of commissioners.“We are very serious about bending the curve and leveling that out. We are very serious about the health of those who worship with us. We just appreciate all concern and are going to continue to take this matter under the strictest concern,” the church leader said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

  • Molecular detection and isolation from Antarctica of methylotrophic bacteria able to grow with methylated sulfur compounds

    first_imgThis study is the first demonstration that a diverse facultatively methylotrophic microbiota exists in some Antarctic locations. PCR amplification of genes diagnostic for methylotrophs was carried out with bacterial DNA isolated from 14 soil and sediment samples from ten locations on Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, Antarctica. Genes encoding the mxaF of methanol dehydrogenase, the fdxA for Afipia ferredoxin, the msmA of methanesulfonate monooxygenase, and the 16S rRNA gene of Methylobacterium were detected in all samples tested. The mxaF gene sequences corresponded to those of Hyphomicrobium, Methylobacterium, and Methylomonas. Over 30 pure cultures of methylotrophs were isolated on methanesulfonate, dimethylsulfone, or dimethylsulfide from ten Signy Island lakes. Some were identified from 16S rRNA gene sequences (and morphology) as Hyphomicrobium species, strains of Afipia felis, and a methylotrophic Flavobacterium strain. Antarctic environments thus contain diverse methylotrophic bacteria, growing on various C1-substrates, including C1-sulfur compounds.last_img read more
