The proposal to renovate the small and old house at Rua de Ceuta was replaced by the desire to reorganize family life on a less fragmented way, without individualized rooms and conventional arrangement of main body plus a small home.Save this picture!© Nelson KonRecommended ProductsWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoWindowsSky-FrameRetractable Insect Screen – Sky-Frame FlyDoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcThe ancient construction warm atmosphere was largely maintained by the open courtyard inside the central area. Towards it, the totality of the domestic environments now is turned, benefited by luminosity that takes volume and crosses the geometrical skin glass facade. This courtyard, even internal, let the house enjoy the outside life, in a spiral walkway that starts from the social entrance, runs through the void inside and outside and ends on the roof, also a family living area.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Nelson KonThe transversal structure overcomes ten meters by a single span extension. It is supported, therefore, on the two lateral borders in order to release the floorplan arrangement. At the patio, was applied an industrialized and very precise, glass-skin frame system, resulting in a vertical portion and giving the central emptiness a larger appearance.Save this picture!© Nelson KonFrom the entrance it is possible to see the internal patio, integrated with the garage, also fenced with a skin glass. In it, two opaque surfaces covered in red painting – the closing of the service dependency, on one side, and one of the boundaries, on the other – reinforce the perspective directing the point of view towards the centre, from which, in turn, is possible to see to the bottom of the terrain.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe functional scheme is simple: on the ground floor, a strip on the left boundary accommodates pantry, laundry and kitchen services. On the opposite side, the entrance hall extends through a gallery accessing a living room and after that a backyard garden. Parallel to it, the stairway goes to the upper floor. Upstairs the two e bedrooms face the setback and the master bedroom stays midway, opening at the same time to the street and the courtyard. The ten meters window on the northwest face is protected by a movable sunshade in slatted wood. The bedroom gallery leads to the external staircase that access the roof, designed as a living terrace, extension of the intimate area and, eventually, the social site of the house. This terrace, place of expanded dimensions has a full sky area and views over the treetops towards Ibirapuera Park.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe house general expression is intended to be concise – white walls, wooden floors and doors and all the black frames add up to the internal colours of the house – with abundant light and transparency, incident throughout the courtyard, being the protagonists.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Section BSave this picture!© Nelson KonThe few walls and a visual integration home spirit invite coexistence and dynamics of a close-knit family.

SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Too Early to Panic About Delayed Planting Too Early to Panic About Delayed Planting Facebook Twitter Too Early to Panic About Delayed PlantingBrodbeck Seeds Agronomist, Rod KingMore rain and cool temperatures are keeping planters idle this week, but it is not time to panic. Corn that was planted two weeks ago is starting to emerge. However, Rob King of Brodbeck Seeds says corn that was planted last week has not had energy to develop and may be in trouble, “The corn that was planted last Monday and Tuesday may be at risk. I think the lack of daily growing heat units will make it hard to get this crop up.” He added, for the past week, we have only been averaging about 5 units per day. In addition, some of the heavy soil in the eastern part of Indiana tends to crust over when hit with heavy rain such as we have seen in the past few days.For many producers, it will be later this week or into the weekend before soils will dry enough to be planted. King told HAT it is not time to panic yet, “We are still early. If we can get planted by May 10 or 12, we will be okay.” He said most producers can get their farms planted in about 5 to 10 days. So, if we can dry things out and warm things up in the next week, the crop should get planted by the end of the month. He urged growers not to rush back into wet fields but to try and wait until the soil is dry. He added it is too early to consider a switch to shorter maturity seeds or switch to soybeans.He does advise growers, however, to get started with their weed control program if they have not been able to put down a pre-plant application, “It is time to get aggressive on weeds before they get too tall.” He warned that the cool weather does not slow the growth of weeds. King also urges growers to begin to scout for insect infestation, “We have seen large number of army worms showing up in traps around the state.”Listen to the complete interview with Rod King of Brodbeck SeedsThe complete interview with Rod King of Brodbeck Seeds Previous articleWeekly Ethanol Production DownNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt SHARE By Gary Truitt – May 4, 2016 Facebook Twitter

@stevenspowers/Instagram(NEW YORK) — A Brooklyn woman’s decision to post a cardboard sign saying that her bicycle had been stolen has sparked a chain of good deeds from complete strangers.Amanda Needham realized her bike — which she uses daily to get to work — was stolen from the front of her brownstone on March 3, just after a snowstorm.Needham, a writer and filmmaker with her own blog, used yellow paint and cardboard to send a message, writing in part, “To the person who stole my bike, I hope you need it more than me.”“I was despondent and the only thing I could think to do was to just say it, to gently intervene in the public space with my truth, and do it with humor and art,” Needham told ABC News. “I needed to do it for me.”The sign hung on Needham’s front gate for around five days with no response until she heard a knock at her front door that she thought was a delivery.Instead, it was two young men who told her they saw the sign and then handed Needham a used kid’s bike with a flat tire.“I was confused,” she recalled. “It took me by surprise but immediately I realized that is how they were honestly responding to my honesty too.”A few days later, Needham got another knock on her door, this time from an older woman who gave her a hug and told her if she found a bicycle she’d bring it to her.“These people were visibly poor and they were giving from what they had,” Needham said. “What I learned is that each and every one of us can do something. We can all do a little something.”Later that same day, Steven Powers, an antiques dealer who rode his own bicycle past Needham’s house, came by with an offer.Powers, who also lives in Brooklyn, was so taken with Needham’s sign that he offered to buy it from her for $200, the cost of the stolen bike.“Being a cyclist I have sympathy for other cyclists,” Powers said. “I took a picture of it and went back to my studio. I posted it on Instagram and within the community of other antiques and arts dealers, there was a little correspondence on it.”When Powers said he was thinking of buying the sign from Needham, an antiques dealer in the U.K. offered to split the $200 and buy it with him.“That was the little push I needed,” Powers said. “The sign was just graphically interesting. … What I think was interesting about her message was that she wasn’t angry.”Needham, who once biked from London to St. Petersburg, Russia, is using the $200 from Powers to purchase a used bicycle for herself.She took the kids’ bicycle to her neighborhood bicycle repair shop, owned by a female mechanic, JoAnne Nicolosi.Nicolosi offered to repair the bike, while Needham offered to set Nicolosi’s shop up on social media. They are now raffling the bicycle, dubbed #karmacyle, off for free later this month.“I’m not glad that this happened but I’m glad that I’ve gotten to meet people and talk to people,” Needham said. “What I want out of this whole situation is not to care that I lost my bike or got a secondhand bike for someone else, but just to remember that those tiny acts can really go a long way.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Read full article Previous Article Next Article HR: Positive Resignation – How to hand in your noticeShared from missc on 8 Jan 2015 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. A question that all HR/recruitment professionals get asked on at least a semi regular basis is: “How should I resign?”. The real answer is, there is no textbook answer as there are so many variables and moving parts involved relevant to e.g. company, manager, your professional style etc. but there are definitely a whole lot of wrong ways to do it. Here’s my 4 small tips that hopefully will offer some piece of mind during what in most cases is an awkward conversation (at best), and help it flow with a little more ease and hopefully avoid friction or burned bridges.Tip 1: No matter how much you might feel like it, don’t use the flaws of the company/manager as your reason for leaving. This is not the time or the place to have this conversation. My advice would be that if there is a burning desire inside you to offer some constructive criticism, do so at an exit interview in a rational and balanced manner. Instead use the positive points of why you have chosen to accept the new role as the reason for your departure.Tip 2: I’m firmly of the belief that we never stop learning and thus regardless of if you feel it has been the most fulfilling role or not, think of the lessons you’ve learned and thank your manager/company for the opportunity to have learned and grown as a professional.Tip 3: Unless extenuating circumstances dictate otherwise, wherever possible be willing to work your full contractual notice period. Make arrangements as such so as to make your transition out of the company as smooth as possible.Tip 4: If not already part of process, offer your time to have an “exit meeting/interview” with your line manager with the aim of trying to shed light on where in your opinion, the organisation could improve. This is where you can offer your CONSTRUCTIVE feedback and show that you are not harbouring any ill feelings due to some negative experiences but instead are aiming to offer your opinion to ensure other employees don’t feel the same thing.These are by no means complicated steps and is relatively “back to basics” kind of stuff but I hope it will give some piece of mind to anyone who may be looking for a little direction on ways to part ways in a positive light.
