The organizing concept for the Mountain Wood residence began as an exploration of separate buildings arranged to create a variety of complementary indoor and outdoor living experiences. Given the rural context of the town of Woodside, regional agrarian compounds and iconic forms were referenced for inspiration, as well as functionality.

The use of stone evokes rusticity; rooting portions of the structures to past homesteads, while the randomly patterned cedar planking and zinc roofing, recall the rural vernacular of the California hay barn. Save this picture!© Matthew MillmanSave this picture!© Matthew MillmanBy inserting exposed steel and large expanses of glass, the home is given a contrasting, contemporary feel. The barn, positioned at the front of the property, serves as a symbolic entry, reinforcing the rural character of the surrounding context. An open passageway leading through the barn dramatically frames the entry facade of the main residence beyond. Upon entering the courtyard, loosely formed by three structures, the balance of space and material enliven the project as a whole.

Researchers at the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC have discovered that the UV radiation Resistance Associated Gene could help prevent the onset of the skin cancer melanoma in high-risk individuals in a study that was conducted earlier this month. Lead researcher and associate professor Chengyu Liang and her team published their findings in Molecular Cell on May 19 during Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.The study found that UVRAG is heavily involved in a cell’s repair process following exposure to UV radiation. Proteins scan for impaired DNA and tag the gene to repair lesions. The expression of this gene is also directly related to survival rates and the metastasis of the cancer.“The higher the UVRAG, the better the survival rate, and the slower the tumor progression,” Liang said in an email to the Daily Trojan. “The UV-protecting function of UVRAG allows the cells to repair UV-induced DNA damage efficiently, reducing the UV-induced genetic instability, thereby protecting against skin cancer.”The UVRAG gene was discovered almost 20 years ago, but until the study conducted by USC researchers, the biological pathway, expression and function of the gene was unknown.The study found that individuals with mutated versions of the gene will be more susceptible to melanoma, which is the deadliest type of skin cancer, claiming the lives of 10,130 people annually, according to the American Cancer Society.“Without UVRAG or when UVRAG is reduced, the core machinery involved in damage repair cannot assemble efficiently, instead rather idle apart, leaving many damage unfixed,” Liang said. “Accumulation of such unfixed DNA errors increases the genetic instability, highly increasing the risk of melanoma and other skin cancer.”The study compared the repaired damage of the normal UVRAG to mutated versions in melanoma cells and 50 fly eyes. After injecting the cells with UV radiation, they discovered that the normal gene repaired approximately twice as much damage as the mutated gene.USC researchers also collaborated with the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology and the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. The study was funded by The Margaret Early Trustee Foundation, American Cancer Society, National Institutes of Health Grants and GRL Program from the National Research Foundation of Korea.This study provides a starting point for future drugs that could stimulate the repair mechanism of the gene for those who are at a high risk for melanoma. Liang says it can also be a helpful indicator for preventative measures.“In the age of precision medicine, doctors may suggest their patients who have risks of skin cancer (such as skin cancer family history, super sensitive to sunlight, etc.) to screen this sunscreen gene and suggest those who have reduced levels of UVRAG or mutant version to protect more against sun exposure, such as lathering on more sunscreen with higher SPF and cover up more in summer, reducing outdoor activities in straight sunlight for long time, etc.,” Liang said.
It was Madrid, however, who were the beneficiaries of a marginal decision this time as Alvaro Odriozola tumbled out of a tussle with Gerard Gumbau and Ramos made no mistake.Leganes had started brighter and could have been ahead had Martin Braithwaite been more precise with his finishing or quicker to a Gumbau pass across goal.Instead, Madrid doubled their lead in the second half when Karim Benzema latched onto an underhit backpass from Bustinza and teed up Vinicius. He slid in Vazquez to finish.Vinicius then got the goal his performance deserved as Odriozola floated a cross to the back post. Back-pedalling, the teenager adjusted his feet before swivelling into an acrobatic shot, the ball flying into left-hand corner.Earlier, Antoine Griezmann helped Atletico Madrid edge towards the last eight as they took a valuable away goal from a 1-1 draw with Girona.Griezmann’s early shot found its way in off both the crossbar and then goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz but Girona hit back before half-time through Anthony Lozano.Neither side could find a winner at Montilivi but Atletico will be the happier, with the second leg at home still to come next week.Share on: WhatsApp Girona, Spain | AFP | Vinicius Junior starred and Real Madrid steadied the ship as a 3-0 win over Leganes on Wednesday put them on the brink of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals.Vinicius, the 18-year-old Brazilian signed by Madrid last summer, capped an electric display at the Santiago Bernabeu with a stunning volley, his third goal for the club and the team’s third of the night.By then, Sergio Ramos had converted a first-half penalty and Lucas Vazquez doubled the advantage to set Madrid on their way to a much-needed first victory of 2019.It will take a seismic comeback for Leganes to overturn the deficit in next week’s second leg but more important to coach Santiago Solari was the rhythm regained, following two La Liga games without a victory.The home crowd, who had whistled and waved white handkerchiefs on Sunday after the loss to Real Sociedad, were also treated to the sight of Brahim Diaz making his debut, the 19-year-old coming off the bench following his move from Manchester City.Vinicius was the shining light, however. The striker was alive to every ball in the final third and his finish, a sweet shot with his body off balance, was a triumph for technical talent.“He is taking big steps,” Solari said afterwards. “He has always had the ability but to develop it and show it in the Bernabeu, alongside so many great players, speaks of his confidence and his courage.”Vinicius had been at the centre of things last weekend too after being denied a controversial penalty during the second half of Real Sociedad’s shock win.
By Joseph SapiaMIDDLETOWN – The Route 35 Village proposal resumes before the township Planning Board on Wednesday, but only the commercial aspect is expected to be on the agenda.The board will resume hearing the application for the Shoppes at Middletown – 338,455 square feet of retail, restaurant and movie theater space with 1,786 parking spaces. The Shoppes are to be built on 52 acres along Route 35 of the overall 118-acre tract.The land is bounded by Route 35 North, Kings Highway East, Carriage Drive and Kanes Lane. While it has some businesses and homes on it, it is mostly woods and open space – and is probably best known as home of the Calico the Clown/Spirits Unlimited liquor store sign.The applicant for the Shoppes at Middletown is John Orrico/Village 35 of Purchase, New York.On the rear 66 acres, or at the Carriage Drive end of the property, Toll Brothers of Horsham, Pennsylvania, proposes the Oaks at Middletown, a 350-townhouse complex. The 350 townhouses break down to 280 units at open-market price and 70 units of “affordable housing.”In June, the Planning Board consolidated the commercial and residential applications for the 118 acres. Planning Board Chairman John Deus said the consolidation was to bring clarity on hearing the proposals to the board and public – allowing engineering, traffic and other related components of the commercial and residential applications to be heard at the same time.But the township Planning and Community Development Department is not expected to deem the residential application complete in time for the Sept. 7 meeting.Toll Brothers filed the Oaks at Middletown application May 27, said the development’s lawyer, John A. Giunco. But the Planning and Community Development Department requested more information on “various engineering and supporting reports,” Giunco said. “They wanted more detail.” Toll Brothers resubmitted the application Thursday, Aug. 25, Giunco said. He said the Planning and Community Development Department has 45 days to review it – which would expire the week of Oct. 9.“We’re ready to move before the board, but it’s unlikely the board will be able (to hear the Oaks at Middletown application beginning Sept. 7),” Giunco said.The Planning Board meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 7 at the municipal complex at the corner of Route 35 South and Kings Highway.This will be the third appearance for the Shoppes at Middletown. So far, only the engineering aspects of the Shoppes at Middletown have been heard by the board.Orrico says he will not discuss the project outside of the hearings as long as they go on. The site, which has seen various unsuccessful development proposals over the last two decades, has drawn the scrutiny of the public. For example, there is a “Stop Village 35” Facebook page.Cindy Squassoni, who lives in the Heritage Hills development of single-family homes at the Carriage Drive end of the property and is one of the opponent leaders, said there is a “right to build” on the property. But she raised various concerns – the size of the project, its lack of open space being preserved, traffic, drainage, aesthetics and impact on schools.“Traffic is horrifying in my mind,” said Squassoni. “Pretty much our neighborhood is going to be a shortcut between (Routes) 35 and 36.”As for the schools, “they’re filled to capacity, as is,” she said.The 118 acres has not yet been subdivided, Giunco said. The property is owned by Mountain Hill LLC, which is the local Azzolina-Scaduto family.
ARCADIA, Calif. (March 24, 2017)–In his first dance on grass, trainer Mark Glatt’s Law Abidin Citizen relaxed well and responded with a game head victory over favored Rockin Rudy in Friday’s $56,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita. Ridden by Jamie Theriot, Law Abidin Citizen negotiated 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside turf course in 1:12.72.Breaking from post position three in a field of six 3-year-olds, Law Abidin Citizen, who came off a second place finish in the Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente Stakes here on Feb. 12, sat a close third behind dueling leaders Rockin Rudy and Elwood J down the hill, swung three-wide at the dirt crossing turning for home and out-gamed the favorite while hand ridden to the wire.“I thought he’d take to the grass,” said Theriot, who has ridden the Twirling Candy gelding in his last three starts. “The idea today was to keep him relaxed early and keep him within striking distance. He’s the type of horse that when he makes the lead, he’ll shut it down a little, so I kept him engaged. He’s a nice horse.”Overlayed at 5-2, Law Abidin Citizen paid $7.00, $2.80 and $2.40. Owned by Dan Agnew, Gerry Schneider and John Xitco, he improved his overall record to 7-2-2-2. With the winner’s check of $33,600, he increased his earnings to $134,200.When asked if Law Abidin Citizen would remain on turf for the time being, Glatt responded, “Probably so. We’ll probably try to stretch him out now. It seemed like he was pretty relaxed. He got floated out pretty wide, but he finished up good.”Ridden by Mario Gutierrez, Rockin Rudy, who was hammered down to even money off a 2-1 morning line, finished 1 ¼ lengths in front of Elwood J and paid $2.40 and $2.10.California-bred Elwood J, ridden by Rafael Bejarano, finished 4 ¾ lengths in front of Interrogator and paid $2.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 21.78, 43.89 and 1:06.66.

These versatile lenses continue to be high-performing video production assets.Cover image via ZEISS.The Zeiss Otus line of lenses have been on the market for a few years; however, I recently rediscovered them as I was looking for a quality lens option for a project that needed something more affordable than traditional cinema lenses. After reading numerous reviews, watching comparison videos, looking at stills, and seeing multiple charts, I believe these lenses will benefit any project.Image via ZEISS.SharpnessSimply put, these lenses are sharp. Each of the three lenses in the lineup features an F/1.4 aperture, and they are surprisingly sharp, even wide open. Most other lenses I was considering were very soft when wide open. Since I had night scenes coming up, I knew I would want a lens I could run wide open, if needed. After looking through numerous charts, the Otus line simply blew me away. You can view some charts here at The Digital Picture to exactly see just how well these lenses perform at F/1.4 compared to a Canon still lens option.Cinema Lens-Like Qualities and FeaturesA huge advantage these lenses have over other still lens options is a 0.8 gear, 32 pitch, and 300-degree barrel rotation. These lenses will feel and function like a traditional cinema lens, so you or your AC wont have difficulty pulling critical focus. Also featured are hard stops, which makes these lenses feel even more like a true cinema option. You can also attach a Cool-Lux LuxGear focus ring so you can easily attach the lens to any follow focus, making this even better for cinematic applications.ConsistencyMuch like the Arri Master Primes, these lenses feature a consistent aperture across the entire family. This is extremely useful when switching lenses because you do not have to adjust exposure for a lower focal length. Also notable is that these lenses perform extremely well across the entire image. Many lenses will lose their sharpness around the edges. However, the Otus line maintains great sharpness across the entire picture. You can view examples of this in the video below.ConclusionThese still lenses, crafted for video, should be strong contenders for your next shoot. They feature exceptional sharpness and cinema lens-like features, and they capture beautiful images. My only hope is that they’ll make more focal lengths.Have you used the Zeiss Otus line of lenses before? Let us know in the comments.
The Tamil Nadu police has informed the Madras High Court that they cannot book cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar, tennis player Sania Mirza and TV host Mandira Bedi in a national flag insult case filed against them in the state.The state police department could not take action against the personalities without the central government’s permission, police told the Madras High Court Bench here.Police submitted that neither the accused belonged to Tamil Nadu nor were they available on the date of the complaint or on subsequent dates.Police filed the counter affidavit on Tuesday in response to a petition by an advocate, B Stalin, seeking a direction to a police inspector to register criminal cases against them under the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971 and Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper use) Act, 1950.When an offence was committed outside India, no prosecution under the Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper use) Act could be instituted without central government’s sanction, the affidavit said.The lawyer should have approached the central government for proper sanction for prosecution, it said.According to the petitioner, while celebrating his birthday Sachin Tendulkar cut a cake which was in the national flag design at Jamaica On March 10,2010.Similarly on May 19,2010, Sania Mirza was resting her feet on a guitar painted in the tricolour while posing as a model for an International company.In Mandira’s case, she was wearing a sari with the national flag on its border,touching her feet, the petitioner said.- With inputs from PTIadvertisement
