The villa is located in a quiet area of Santa Maria da Feira (north of Portugal) surrounded by trees. This villa is designed with the intention of protecting its owners from the unorganized and uncharacteristic surroundings. The oak forest to the east belongs to the client and creates an idyllic area in front of the surrounding land. The program is practically developed on a single floor, only the mezzanine office facing the social area is on the upper floor.Save this picture!© Miguel CoelhoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Miguel CoelhoThe house is in the form of a “?”, Which allows you to organize your functional program facing an open patio for the oak forest, where almost all the vains of the house are facing, ensuring lighting and views/perspectives while maintaining the privacy of the residents. Only toilets have private patios. The social area of the villa forms an open space, which can be freely divided and closed thanks to sliding walls/panels. The complex shape of the concrete / reinforced concrete cover was adjusted and calibrated on site.

Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics Twitter Previous articleTuition to exceed $50,000 moving forwardNext articleThe Leap 11/12/19 Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas. Along with sports writing, Colin hopes to work in sports announcing after he graduates. printAfter TCU’s 29-23 loss to No. 11 Baylor last Saturday in triple overtime, head coach Gary Patterson’s main takeaway was simple.“Bottom line is you’ve just got to find a way to win,”Patterson said. This sentence has never been more prevalent for TCU heading into their final three games of the season, which begins this Saturday in Lubbock against Texas Tech. Sitting on a 4-5 record, TCU needs to win two of their final three games to reach bowl eligibility. With a trip to Norman to face the No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners next weekend, a win over the Red Raiders seems necessary to make bowl eligibility a reality.“Coach P says that every year the goal is to give the seniors the best season that they could possibly have, and that goal hasn’t changed at all,” right guard David Bolisomi said. “The most important game is the next game.”TCU’s situation is reminiscent to last year when they needed to win three of their final four games to earn bowl eligibility.Back in that position again, the Frogs face a Red Raiders squad with the same sense of urgency. After defeating West Virginia 38-17 last Saturday, Texas Tech enters the game at 4-5 as well.“Texas Tech — kind of in the same situation we are,” Patterson said. “Both of us are fighting to be bowl eligible.”The Red Raiders are led on offense by quarterback Jett Duffey. After sitting behind sophomore Alan Bowman for the first three games, Duffey emerged as the starter once Bowman went down with a shoulder injury. Since then, he has shown signs of brilliance, leading Tech’s offense to 310.7 passing yards per game, third in the Big 12. In a 45-35 win over Oklahoma State in early October, Duffey exploded for 424 passing yards, four passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown.Much of Duffey’s success can be credited to the Red Raiders’ deep receiving core. Led by T.J Vasher (473 yards, six receiving touchdowns), Texas Tech has five receivers with 240-plus receiving yards on the season.“They always have skilled wide receivers,” Patterson said. “They use the same personnel groups to get into every personnel they need to get to. That allows them to go fast because they don’t substitute.”Vasher has caught a touchdown in each of his last fourgames played.As they prepare to slow Duffey and company down, TCU’s secondary will get a boost from the return of safety Vernon Scott. The senior has recorded 27 tackles and six pass breakups this season before missing the Baylor game with an injury.On the other hand, the Frogs will be without linebacker La’Kendrick Van Zandt who recorded his first career interception Saturday against the Bears. Patterson said Van Zandt, who went down midway through Saturday’s game, could be out for the season.Defensively, Texas Tech ranks near the bottom of the Big 12. Nevertheless, linebacker Jordyn Brooks represents a game-changing threat for the Red Raiders.“They have a really good linebacker— No. 1 [Brooks],” Bolisomi said. “He flies sideline-to-sideline.”A Bednarik and Butkus Award Semifinalist, Brooks ranks seventh in the nation with 98 total tackles and second with 2.0 tackles for a loss per game. Like Duffey, Brooks also showed out against Oklahoma State, recording a career-high three sacks.Now fully healthy, first-year quarterback Max Duggan will have a perfect opportunity to rebound from a Baylor game in which he completed just 43.8% of his passes (worst in Big 12 games), as he faces a Red Raider secondary that gives up an average of 470.3 yards per game.Despite coming off of two-straight three-interception performances, Duggan has the confidence of his teammates.“We always knew the kid got heart,” Bolisomi said. “That makes us want to block even hard for him as an o-line. He shows that he doesn’t give up.”Patterson noted that Duggan was one of the last out of the locker room after the loss to Baylor, pointing to his desire to win. Despite his recent passing struggles, the growth that the first-year signal caller has shown this season is undeniable.“You see that he’s [Duggan] much more confident in himself,” Bolisomi said. “He understands his role as a leader.”This mentality may be what TCU needs right about now,as their backs are all but against the wall.Kickoff against the Red Raiders is scheduled 11 a.m. Saturday. in Lubbock.

He is an independent journalist who fights constantly for human rights.”Anouzla was arrested on 17 September for posting an article that contained a link to a video posted by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). He is still facing a possible sentence of 10 to 30 years in prison on charges of providing “material assistance” to a terrorist group, “defending terrorism” and “inciting the execution of terrorist acts.” His next appearance before the judge has been set for 30 October.Anouzla edits the Arabic-language version of the news website Lakome.info. Access to both Arabic and French-language versions have been blocked in Morocco since 17 October.

In Australia, Hamas and the Lebanese-based Hizbollah are seen as terrorist organisations and all support for them is punishable under anti-terror laws.In fact, Jess Moore had gone with around 20 other students to attend a conference as a student activist and journalist, but the meeting had nothing to do with Hamas. It focused on the Australian government’s homophobic political stance.Misled by the message left on the hotline, police in Wollongong alerted the authorities. A police inspector turned up at the campus before realising the mistake. Police in Wollongong however told Jess Moore, who is also an anti-war activist, that the investigation against her was continuing.The Sydney Morning Herald condemned the incident and Moore said she was stunned by the investigation, which she had only been told about on 5 December, two months after the meeting. “I spoke to several lawyers and they told me to take this case seriously,” she told a journalist on ABC Online.“This student who had absolutely nothing to do with terrorist groups was the subject of a secret police investigation,” said Reporters Without Borders. “The government would do better to support student newspapers rather than to act against them”.Parliament on 6 December 2005, adopted the Australian Anti-Terrorism Act 2005 which provided for penalties of up to five years in prison for anyone making contact with a person suspected of terrorism. Journalists investigating terrorist activity could be arrested by police, particularly if they published the names of suspects. Under the new law, reporters have no right to refuse to reveal their sources in terror cases. Security forces can also conduct searches of media premises in pursuit of evidence in such cases.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * 29 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Some local residents said they opposed a 17-unit, four-story multi-family residential development at 139 S. Oak Knoll Ave.The opposition came in correspondence to the city’s Design Commission which met on Tuesday. This is the third project on the street that has prompted letters to the commission.“I am a resident of 147 S. Oak Knoll Ave. and I saw the signs posted for building plans at 139 and 150 S. Oak Knoll Ave parking lot locations,” said Claire Hoffman.“I am strongly opposed to these plans as I believe it will negatively impact the neighborhood. My understanding is there is not a need for more housing at this time as I see an abundance of for rent signs when I drive through Pasadena,” she said. “Right now, there is a need for parking for residents, the employees at the imaging center on the corner, and patrons of nearby shops and restaurants.”Hoffman said she would consider leaving the area if construction continues.A report by the Department of Planning and Community Development showed the project site is a single 8,610 square-foot lot at the southwest corner of South Oak Knoll Avenue and Mira Monte Place, between East Green and Cordova streets. The site is rectangular-shaped and is currently developed with a surface parking lot surrounded by a perimeter concrete block wall that was built in 1959 and is proposed to be demolished.Previously, a two-story single-family residence estimated to be built in the 1890s was on the site but was demolished around 1955 or 1956. There are three non-protected trees within the site and are all proposed to be removed. There are also seven street palm trees in the public right of way, which will be retained.“It’s a bit disappointing that the city of Pasadena is taking the side of developers rather than its habitants and ratepayers,” said Martiza Torres. “The developer has many more areas that he can develop. Why this one, when it’s packed with apartments already? Why is the city of Pasadena allowing this? Why is the city not taking care of its citizens? Moreover, we are in a gray zone. We don’t have much greenery or parking stations for the already saturated area we live in. We’ve started a network and will be blind copying each other to ensure that messages have been sent opposing this construction.”Torres said signs for the project were just placed two weeks ago.The proposed project is for the construction of a four-story multifamily residential development with 17 dwelling units and 20 subterranean parking spaces. The site design consists of a single building mass with a footprint that would occupy the majority of the site, except for the required front and side yard setbacks, a vehicular driveway at the south edge of the property, and an open garden space along the westerly edge.The Design Commission reviewed an application for preliminary consultation for this project on Nov. 13, 2018, and submitted comments, leading to a number of revisions from the design team.“I oppose the construction at Oak Knoll/ Mira Monte Pl. I have an acupuncture clinic at 704 Mira Monte Pl #1, Pasadena, CA 91101,” said Reiko Aoo, who owns Kenko Acupuncture. “During the treatment, patients are resting. The construction noise hurts my practice deadly. We cannot practice if you do the construction at Oak Knoll and Mira Monte Place in Pasadena.” CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Community News Top of the News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff Herbeauty11 Signs Your Perfectionism Has Gotten Out Of ControlHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Lies You Should Stop Telling Yourself Right NowHerbeautyHerbeauty Subscribe Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
