URBAN DESIGNRe-urbanization of the area known as SAPÉ was an initiative of the Municipal Housing Secretariat of São Paulo. The action involved 2,500 families living in precarious dwellings in the district of Rio Pequeno. The design concept for the urbanization of Sapé was to promote the urban stitching of both banks of the watercourse by designing public spaces. Survey of the physical and social characteristics of the surrounding community showed urban discontinuity in various stages of deterioration and precariousness. Thus the project becomes the tool for inclusion to the extent that its actions would offer opportunities for connecting people, allowing social reunions and exchanges within the urbanized social space As infrastructure and housing projects converge in urban design (21), spaces are created to improve urban mobility, environmental quality, housing, recreation and work that will enhance the sense of belonging and cooperate to preserve and improve quality of life in the city.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiThe main goals of urbanization are namely to remove all families under situation of risk (03), to implement urban infrastructure in existing dwellings and to build new houses in the area. Therefore, beginning with the areas spared from mandatory removals, other possible settlement areas adjoining the green promenade alongside the Sapé watercourse were surveyed (04). With re-urbanization 3  areas for new buildings were created while the public space was maximized by creating connecting points  in the community encompassing the neighborhood and schools (14/15).Save this picture!Urban Plan 2Save this picture!Urban Plan 3The project for drainage of the Sapé watercourse adopted as a reference the project previously implemented upstream by the environment secretariat (SVMA). To develop the canal sections geometry we tried to respect the original topography of the riverbed, without substantially modifying the bottom heights and widths, using several hydraulic sections (T, mixed and straight) (09), a strategy that allowed us to visually bring the water surface to the level of the sidewalks. On both banks,  non aedificanda areas were used to plant trees along the promenade and to create parks for people gatherings and recreational activities (05). Owing to the small declivity throughout the path, we proposed to build  a bike lane along the left bank that would be connected to the projected bike lane leading to Avenida Politécnica and the Butantã Public School. This would allow a longitudinal integration along the 1,800 meters of the promenade.(08)Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiTransversally the project established two new roadways¸ improved pedestrian alleys and access to the remaining dwellings. Several bridges were built to allow easier crossing of the watercourse.(13) All inner roads are shared, paved with interlocking concrete blocks and featuring low curbs, much like the English Woonerf where pedestrian traffic is prioritized and car circulation is controlled via urban design and landscaping elements.(11)Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiThe project provides strong permeability among public, collective and private spaces. (12) In places of high declivity and where retention was required a low concrete parapet was built (up to 120cm high), thus introducing a physical element that allowed articulation between said spaces, without causing undue segregation and at the same time solving the problem. The cantilever wall retains the foundations of buildings alongside the riverbed and the green promenade, where gardens, staircases and ramps were inscribed in the urban design and at the same time it set the boundaries for the new condominium buildings. All these urban design strategies and interventions at different levels helped to bring the concept of public spaces mobility and recreation closer to the buildings, to the alleys and to the small squares shaped by the works of infrastructure (07/16/17).  Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiPreliminary social diagnosis had highlighted the precarious economic situation of the population in the area. Urban action was therefore also aimed at tapping vocations and opportunities. To this effect, the urban project took into consideration the multiple uses of spaces and created areas along the green promenade so that uses related to services and the existing stores, as well as to the new recreational spaces and the bike lane would be fully integrated and provide income opportunities and act as urban tools for physical and social integration. Even in the early periods of the works it was possible to detect that merely by widening the sidewalks these opportunities naturally arise (18/19).Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSCALE OF THE BUILDINGThe architectural project for Sapé is grounded on the two following considerations:Unit to building : the project envisages 7 different types of housing units – 2 bedrooms, 3 bedrooms, duplex and universal access units, all between 50 and 46 square meters, besides commercial and services units (06/29). The number of each was determined from the survey of families as the work developed. Constructive system was optimized according to the standard measures defined for windows and doors, hydraulic plumbing on fixed panels, all allowing adequate cross ventilation. (28) Shared collective porches for circulation allowed more conviviality in the alleys at ground level and created a space for social exchanges among families living on the same floor of the buildings.(26/30)Save this picture!© Pedro Vannucchicity to building: structural separation of buildings for horizontal circulation and vertical intervals, as well as definition of building volumes was of the essence to achieve  flexibility in the implantation of buildings. (22)  Articulation between these elements generated an implantation that was adapted to each particular terrain, its relationship vis à vis the environment and the situation of each lot in the landscape. (24/25) By incorporating the landscape into the green promenade between each building all spaces were integrated and helped shaping the transition between public and private areas. There was an ever present concern to allow access to houses either at street level or via the green promenade. In order to accommodate this concept to the actual topography, buildings were “poised” on the terrain, creating underground units directly connected to the green promenade.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiProject gallerySee allShow lessGreek Pavilion at the 2018 Venice Biennale to Explore Utopian Visions of LearningArchitecture News11 Houses with Unique Living RoomsArticlesProject locationAddress:R.

Government to match private donations to universities

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 24 December 2004 | News Tagged with: Individual giving Research / statistics The government is to provide up to £7.5 million over the next three years to match individual and corporate gifts to English universities.The government says that the matched funding scheme has been introduced “to help English institutions build their capacity to raise income”.It is likely that some of the government funding will be used to build up fundraising or development departments at universities, in order to diversify income sources and grow income. Indeed, Professor Eric Thomas, vice-chancellor of Bristol University, told that the new funds should be used to build up professional fundraising offices. Professor Thomas had previously published a report which claimed that, without government matched funding, universities were missing out on around £600m a year. Advertisement Government to match private donations to universitiescenter_img The funding announcement followed the publication of research by educational charity The Sutton Trust which found that in the USA matched-funding schemes for universities gave a return on public funding of 300%. The trusts’s chairman Sir Peter Lampl said: “There is the potential to raise millions of pounds for UK universities if the government provided matched funding.”  27 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Reagor, Snell rise as freshman standouts

first_imgIqbal leads women’s golf to fourth-place finish at Big 12 Tournament Branson Nelson Facebook ReddIt Photo courtesy of printOne thing is clear as TCU nears the end of its second week of fall camp: high school classmates Jalen Reagor and Kennedy Snell are shining for the Horned Frogs’ offense.“Snell and Reagor are two Waxahachie guys that have had an unbelievable two weeks,” Patterson said. “They don’t seem to get tired, which is a tribute to the way they practice at Waxahachie. They are used to this kind of rigor and how we do things.”Reagor, a 5-11, 185 pound receiver, was TCU’s highest rated signee of all time, ranked as the No. 97 player in the 2017 class by 247 Sports composite rankings. As a senior at Waxahachie, Reagor caught 50 passes for 967 yards and 14 touchdowns over 10 games. He finished the season with more than 1400 all-purpose yards for the Indians, and he has lived up to the hype early in fall camp.“We’re only two weeks in, but he’s really competing on one side with Jaelan Austin and Isaiah [Graham],” Patterson said.Reagor’s dad, Montae, played defensive line for Texas Tech in the late 1990s before going on to play nine seasons in the NFL with three different teams. Patterson said that the freshman’s strong showing early in camp and never-back-down attitude come from being raised by a defensive player.“That’s why, I think, Jalen is the way he is,” Patterson said. “He’s an offensive guy that’s been raised with a defensive mentality, so there’s the difference.”Reagor should see significant playing time early, whether he wins a starting job or not. TCU’s air-raid offense requires receivers to rotate in and out often, meaning Reagor could make an immediate impact.Snell, a 5-8, 170 pound running back, was much lower ranked than Reagor coming out of Waxahachie. Snell did not even crack the top 600 players in the 247 Sports composite rankings, but he too has stood out quickly at fall camp. With Kyle Hicks seeing some time off during practices, and with Sewo Olonilua’s leg injury sidelining him for the time being, Darius Anderson is the only returning running back seeing full-time reps. Snell has had to step up to fill a void left in the backfield.“A guy that has saved us is Snell,” Patterson said. “He’s playing running back, he’s doing all of that. He’s a 10.3 100-meter guy, so it makes him a mismatch for linebackers, and he’s not scared to run inside.”The speed Patterson mentioned allowed Snell to rush for 669 yards on 47 carries for a 14.2 yard per carry average as a senior in high school. He caught 19 balls for 339 yards and averaged 42.4 yards per kickoff return. The versatility might remind some of junior wide receiver KaVontae Turpin, but Patterson said the two do not compare because they play different positions. With that said, Turpin and Snell have the ability to be a premier kick return duo, and they will both provide the offense with elite speed.Snell is sure to provide depth in the backfield while also adding versatility on offense, though Patterson would not comment on his exact role to avoid opponents being able to prepare for him.TCU fans will get their first chance to see Reagor and Snell in TCU purple Sept. 2 at 7 p.m. against Jackson State in Fort Worth, and there’s reason to be excited.“You know me, I wouldn’t have said anything positive about them if I didn’t think they had good practices,” Patterson said. “They haven’t backed down from anything so far here.” Facebook Branson Nelson + posts Branson Nelson Equestrian earns last seed in NCEA team bracket TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Twitter Branson is a junior journalism major from Fort Worth, Texas.

Dabholkar Murder Case- Bombay High Court Grants Bail To Accused Vikram Bhave

first_imgNews UpdatesDabholkar Murder Case- Bombay High Court Grants Bail To Accused Vikram Bhave Sharmeen Hakim6 May 2021 8:36 AMShare This – xThe Bombay High Court granted bail to Vikram Bhave accused in the 2013 murder of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar, observing that CBI’s evidence against him is not enough to conclude that the allegations are prima facie true. The bench observed that CBI’s could not have relied solely on the confessional statement by co-accused Sharad Kalaskar given to the Karnataka SIT in journalist-activist Gauri Lankesh’s murder case. Especially since Bhave was not an accused in the Karnataka case. “The emphasis placed by respondent No.2-CBI solely on the said confessional statement of co-accused Sharad Kalaskar under the KCOC(Karnataka Control of Organised Crime) Act, is prima facie misplaced and it is also clear that the Sessions Court could not have placed emphasis on the said confessional statement to conclude that the accusation made against the appellant concerning the incident in question could be said to be prima facie true,” A division bench of Justices SS Shide and Manish Pitale said while allowing his appeals. The CBI arrested Bhave on 25th May 2019 along with advocate Sanjeev Punalekar. under the UAPA. They accused him of helping alleged sharpshooters Sharad Kalaskar and Sachin Andure to conduct a reconnaissance of the spot where Dr. Dabholkar was shot dead on August 20, 2013, about 15 days before the incident. The CBI further claimed that Bhave showed them the escapes after committing the crime, and one of them identified Bhave’s picture. Bhave approached the High Court challenging two rejection orders of the trial court in Pune. The bench granted Bhave bail despite the rigours of section 43-D(5) of the UAPA Act. According to the section, an accused charged under UAPA cannot be released if the court concludes there are reasonable grounds to believe the allegations are true. “We are aware that while considering the material placed on record along with the charge-sheet, the court cannot enter into the realm of appreciation of evidence, but we have proceeded on the basis of the material on which respondent No.2-CBI has placed emphasis and as noted above, we find that the same does not appear to show reasonable grounds to conclude that the accusations levelled against the appellant can be said to be prima facie true,” the bench held. Regarding the admissibility of a confessional statement made by a co-accused, the bench cited the proviso to section 19 of KCOC. According to the Act, a confession shall be admissible against co-accused provided that the co-accused is charged and tried in the same case together with the accused person. The bench cited i.e. section 15 of the TADA, in the case of Sunderlal Kanaiyalal Bhatija v. State of Maharashtra. Apart from the confessional statement, the bench noted that the only other ground used by the Sessions Court to reject bail, was that Bhave was on bail in a terror case when the incident happened. The bench noted that wasn’t true. “But, as a matter of fact, the conviction of the appellant in the other case in which he was released on bail pending appeal before this Court, was not for a terrorist offence.” Another reason to grant bail was the unlikelihood of the trial beginning soon. “It is clear that further investigation is being undertaken for examining the larger conspiracy in the matter. It has been stated in a note in the charge-sheet that further list of witnesses will be submitted as investigation under Section 173(8) of the Cr.P.C. is continuing. Thus, there is hardly any likelihood of charges being framed and the trial commencing in the near future. Consequently, there is very little chance of the trial being completed in the foreseeable future.” Bail conditions While granting bail to Bhave, the court directed him to furnish a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh and two solvent sureties of the like amount. It also directed him to appear before the police station concerned in Pune every day for one month, followed by twice a week for two months and then once a week until the trial’s completion. The HC has directed Bhave to attend the trial and not to tamper with any evidence or witnesses. They also directed him not to indulge in any illegal activities. Bhave was represented by advocate Subhash Jha and Hare Krishna Mishra while Advocate Sandesh Patil represented the State.
