The Viadutos Building, designed and built by the architect Artacho Jurado during the 1950s, is a historic landmark in São Paulo. Its imposing implantation in an island resulting from the Plan of Avenues of Prestes Maia, centrally demarcates the visual axis of who transits by the Viaduct Nove de Julho.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoThe apartment in question, in the 18th floor of that building, provides through its terraced area a privileged view of the city downtown. Demolishing all the internal walls of the trimmed original plan was, therefore, an action for which the landscape and the natural light, framed by the original wooden frames, could penetrate the space.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Rafaela NettoTo increase the feeling of amplitude within the 46 m2 of internal area, the division between environments was made through a furniture that floats suspended, without touching the green floor that floods the whole apartment. The timber volume amid the plan has a double function, opening up both to the living room and to the bedroom: while one side is a closet for books and electronics, the other serves as a wardrobe. The concrete countertop functionality also assisted in the organization and space gain,because in it is embedded the laundry utensils, kitchen and the bathroom, separated from those by a mirror suspended on the countertop.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoAs it was the only closed environment and with little incidence of natural light, the bathroom was enveloped by panels of translucent glass instead of masonry. The acid treatment ensures privacy, but also allows the filtered passage of light, both at the daytime coming from the room, as at night, when the internal artificial light transforms it into a large flashlight.This artificial light is emitted by the technical partition between the toilet and the shower, which also concentrates all the hydraulic pipes, facilitating their maintenance if necessary.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoThe tall cabinet in the kitchen is another important element, as it constitutes a second flashlight facing the living room. The other indirect luminaires are also loose from the ceiling, releasing the slab and stripped concrete beams from other visual interferences.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoAlthough the area still be the same, the spatial feeling has been completely transformed, from the small subdivided apartment into a large space. This has only become possible thanks to the adopted strategies of materials unification of the two continuous planes, the epoxy floor below and the concrete ceiling above, the visual integration between environments and the maximum functional utilization of all the elements that compose it.Save this picture!© Rafaela NettoProject gallerySee allShow lessDavid Chipperfield Architects Selected to Design Tallest Tower in HamburgUnbuilt ProjectIn-between, Hinoki + Sugi Pavilion / x-studioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:São Paulo, São Paulo, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Farmer Optimism Continues to Decline as Planting Begins Farmer Optimism Continues to Decline as Planting BeginsKatie MicikSpring is usually a time for optimism for ag producers as they look forward to another crop, but not this year. Low commodity prices, ongoing high input costs, and low income projections have producers feeling more pessimistic about their industry than ever before, according to the latest DTN/The Progressive Farmer Agriculture Confidence Index (ACI). Overall producer confidence dropped from 92.7 last December to a new record low of 91.5 in March. The value of 100 is considered neutral. Values above 100 indicate optimism, whereas values below signify pessimism. Farmer Optimism Continues to Decline as Planting Begins By Gary Truitt – Mar 29, 2016 SHARE SHARE Other ACI findings include:47 percent of crop and livestock producers rate input prices as bad.18 percent of producers surveyed say input prices will get better the next 12 months.Crop producer confidence dropped to an all-time low or 89.7 with present situation at 88.4 and future expectations at 90.6.Livestock producer confidence fell for fifth time in last six surveys to 95.9 with present situation at 109.5 and future expectations at 86.8.The overall indexes for producers in the Midwest, Southeast and Southwest fell within the pessimistic range at 87.0, 91.3 and 98.5, respectively. The confidence index, which surveyed 500 crop and livestock producers March 1-10, measures the sentiments of crop and livestock producers on their overall agriculture sector impressions. Since 2010, DTN/The Progressive Farmer has conducted the ACI three times a year – before planting, before harvest, and after harvest. Producers also rate current and long-term input prices and net farm income to gauge their attitudes toward the present situation and future expectationsIn the March survey, 45 percent of farmers described their farm income as bad and 40 percent said income was normal. Micik said this is the second consecutive survey in which more producers considered their current farm income as bad than as normal. “Over the next year, 86 percent of producers surveyed expect farm income will stay the same or get worse. It is also the second highest recorded in ACI history behind only the 88 percent in March 2012,” said Micik. Facebook Twitter Producers’ attitudes for the present situation remain pessimistic at 94.5, up slightly from 92.2 but down significantly from 109.1 last March. Producer expectations for the future dropped for the second consecutive survey, down from 98.0 last August to 93.1 in December and then to 89.5 in March. “Farmers continue to struggle with balancing high input costs and low crop prices,” said DTN Markets Editor Katie Micik, director of the confidence index. “With ongoing global row crops surpluses, farmers see little hope to improve incomes this year.” Fueling a good deal of the pessimism that producers have is the uncertainty over several key economic and policy issues. “The value of the U.S. dollar, the outcome of the RFS, and the implementation of the WOTUS rule are all weighing on farmers minds,” said MIcik.

Travel Limerick to Nenagh and back on the bikeTHE value for money of a cycle way between Limerick and Nenagh, costing around €880,000, has been called into question. The cycle lane is to be developed as a joint project by Limerick County Council and North Tipperary Council along the old R445, and is due to be completed by the end of the year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, sustainable travel groups have suggested that the money could be spent on more worthwhile projects.James Nix of Plan Better, a joint initiative promoting sustainable transport, told the Limerick Post that if the cycle lanes are not maintained, the money will have been wasted.“If the bulk of the money went on realignment and taking out hazards, fair enough”, said Mr. Nix, who ran in the local elections in 2009.“But if most of the €880,000 is going on red paint that the councils won’t later machine sweep, the whole exercise will be counterproductive”.The funding has been secured as part of a €4million Department of Transport plan to create cycle lanes on national roads, which has been criticised by cycling lobby group cyclist.ie, whose belief is that the plans are a poor use of public money.But Pat O’Neill, senior engineer at Limerick County Council, told the Limerick Post that if the money was not spent on this project, it would be lost.“This is an opportunity that we would have been foolish to ignore.“There will always be criticism of projects, but it wasn’t a matter of choosing where to spend the money. It was use it or lose it.“We are tying the project in with Limerick’s City of Sport title and have had a lot of favourable submissions during the period of public observation”.Mr. O’Neill said the project is to begin in early October, and is to be finished by the end of the year.Providing a preliminary breakdown on where the money will be spent, Mr. O’Neill explained that removing existing road markings would cost around €440,000, signage would be an estimated €80,000, survey work a further €90,000 and civil work about €220,000.“There are 32km of cycle way on each side of the road, so 64km in total. “The existing hard shoulder will be incorporated and we will accommodate existing traffic on the normal road.“We had a lot of submissions querying safety, but there are many measures being taken to ensure this is paramount, such as ‘vibra lines’, which make cars vibrate when they drive over them, to remind them they are too far over.“A lot of cyclists already use the route because it is a flat surface with beautiful scenery, but we will include cycle counters to assess the increase of its use with the completed cycle lanes in place”. The route will run from the Stereame Roundabout on the R445 via the Carrigatoher Junction in Birdhill, through to the Carrowkeel Junction on the east side of Limerick city and from there to the Annacotty Roundabout, immediately west of the Mulcair River.

ABC News(PITTSBURGH) — The man who allegedly gunned down 11 worshipers at a Pittsburgh synagogue used three handguns and an AR-15 assault rifle in the 20-minute rampage and screamed to SWAT officers who wounded him in a shootout that he wanted “all Jews to die,” authorities said on Sunday.Robert Gregory Bowers, the suspect in the latest mass shooting in America, allegedly acted alone in the Saturday morning massacre at the Tree of Life temple, bursting into Shabbat services with guns blazing and killing three women and eight men, while injuring six others, including four police officers, officials said.During a news conference Sunday morning, the names of the dead were released. They ranged in age from 54 to 97, and included two brothers, a married couple and a family physician. All the victims were from the Pittsburgh area.Dr. Karl Williams, the Allegheny County medical examiner, read the names of the victims: Joyce Feinberg, 75, Richard Gottfried, 65, Rose Mallinger, 97, Jerry Rabinowitz, 66, Daniel Stein, 71, Melvin Wax, 88, and Irving Younger, 69.Also killed were brothers Cecil Rosenthal, 59, and David Rosenthal, 54; and Bernice Simon, 84, and her husband, Sylvan Simon, 86.Bowers, 46, of Pittsburgh, remained in fair condition and under guard on Sunday in a Pittsburgh hospital. He is scheduled to make his first appearance in federal court at 1:30 p.m. on Monday.‘Screw the optics, I’m going in’Investigators said that minutes before carrying out the carnage, Bowers is believed to have posted his intent to commit the massacre on the social media platform Gab, which is popular with white supremacists and the alt-right.“Screw the optics, I’m going in,” reads a post believed to have been made by Bowers moments before the first gunshots were fired inside the temple.Bowers was charged late Saturday night with 29 federal counts, including several hate crimes. He is facing 11 counts of obstruction of exercise of religious beliefs resulting in death, 11 counts of use of a firearm to commit murder, four counts of obstruction of exercise of religious belief resulting in bodily injury to a public safety officer and three counts of use and discharge of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.The four counts of bodily injury to a public safety officer stem from the police officers injured in the shooting.“Each count is punishable by death,” Scott Brady, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, said at Sunday’s news conference.Bob Jones, the special agent in charge of the FBI Pittsburgh office, said Bowers allegedly used three Glock 357 handguns and an AR-15 assault rifle in the massacre.“All the weapons he brought into the facility were used,” Jones said.Brady added that during the course of the deadly assault, “Bowers made statements regarding genocide and his desire to kill Jewish people.”Jones said Bowers roamed the sprawling temple in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood to kill victims.Gun battle with suspectThree services were occurring simultaneously at the temple at the time of the rampage and Jones said bodies were found in three different locations of the synagogue.The first shots were fired about 9:45 a.m. and calls went out to emergency medical services at 9:54 a.m.Rabbi Jeffrey Myers was officiating one of the services when the shooting broke out. He told ABC News on Sunday that for about 20 seconds he wasn’t sure what was happening.Myers immediately called 911 as another rabbi huddled with congregants in a cloakroom. He said he was on the phone with a 911 dispatcher being the “eyes and ears” for the police as they rushed to the scene.He declined further comment, saying, “I have seven funerals to plan for tomorrow.”Officers raced to the synagogue and encountered Bowers as he was exiting the building and a gun battle ensued, authorities said. Bowers retreated back into the temple and went to the third floor, according to the criminal complaint filed against him.“SWAT operators entered the third floor of the building. While searching for any remaining victims SWAT operators encountered Bowers, who opened fire on the officers,” according to the complaint.During the gunfight, two officers were shot multiple times by Bowers. Two other officers were injured by flying glass or bullet fragments in the encounter, authorities said.During the exchange of gunfire, Bowers was shot several times and taken into custody, according to the complaint.As Bowers was being treated at the scene, he blurted out a statement to SWAT Officer David Blahut, saying, “He wanted all Jews to die and also that they (Jews) were committing genocide to his people,” according to the criminal complaint.Bowers was not known to the FBI before Saturday, according to Jones. Investigators suspect he acted alone, Jones said.In addition to the federal charges, Bowers was also charged with 35 state offenses, including 11 counts of criminal homicide, six counts of criminal attempted homicide, six counts of aggravated assault and 13 counts of ethnic intimidation.Some of the congregants were gathering for a baby-naming ceremony in the synagogue which had not yet started when the massacre began to unfold. No children were among those injured, authorities said.“I heard the gunfire”Five victims remained hospitalized Sunday evening, including two in critical condition, said Dr. Donald Yealy, chair of emergency medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He said the two in critical condition were a 40-year-old SWAT team member and a 70-year old man who is the chaplain at UPMC-Presbyterian.Dr. Leonard Weiss, assistant EMS medical director for the city of Pittsburgh, lives next door to the synagogue and told ABC News on Sunday that the gunfire woke him up.“I started hearing yelling. Then I realized it was very close by,” Weiss said. “My first thoughts were to get safe. But I knew that my role with the city and my role in my job is to find out what’s going on and respond.”He said he called the emergency dispatch center to find out where the staging area was, then alerted his colleagues at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center of the alarming situation.“Then I dressed up. I got as much equipment as I could together, and put my boots on and I went outside,” Weiss said. “I immediately was suspicious when I heard the gunfire that there would be several casualties. It took a long time for the scene to get safe and for us to get a specific count on who was injured.”He said police officers escorted him to the staging area, where he helped direct ambulances to the scene and paramedics to the scene. He recalled checking on one victim with a bullet wound who was being rushed to the hospital who was in bad shape.He said that once the gunfire subsided and the wounded had been removed from the synagogue, he went to the threshold of the temple and looked in.“I saw several damaged windows. I could see a lot of upsetting things in the chapel that was beyond that threshold,” he said. “I was able to visualize some of the victims who lost their lives.“I felt very emotional,” he said. “I felt scared for myself and for my family and my neighbors. I felt scared for my city that it could happen here. And, felt especially proud and worried about my colleague paramedics that risked their lives to go right in and pull people out while the action was unfolding.”He said it wasn’t until Sunday morning that he heard one of the victims killed was Rabinowitz, a family physician and colleague at the UPMC Shadyside Hospital.Police snipers used their houseKim and Ken Hardin, who live across the street from the synagogue, said they heard the shots and quickly ushered their children and a friend of theirs into the basement and away from windows.“We heard five repetitive shots. I stepped out on my porch and I heard three additional shots and within minutes police started to arrive,” Ken Hardin told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sunday. “Police started to park in front of our house. They were shielding themselves with their car. So we realized the situation was pretty serious.”He said five officers knocked on his back door and asked to use their second floor to position snipers.“The five police officers went upstairs, asked that I open the windows in our bedroom and obtain a chest-high dresser,” Ken Hardin said. “So I found one in my son’s room. A police officer and I took the drawers out and dragged the dresser right in front of the window and they perched their rifles on top of the dresser toward the synagogue.”Kim Hardin added: “We did see shooting taking place. Our youngest son said that he saw a police officer get shot. I don’t know whether or not that he did. It was certainly traumatic for a 10-year-old to see police with so many weapons and to hear the gunfire.”“Darkest day in Pittsburgh’s history”The Anti-Defamation League said it was “unconscionable for Jews to be targeted during worship on a Sabbath morning.”“This is the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States,” it said in a statement.First responders prevented the shooting from becoming a worse tragedy, Brady said.“They are truly heroes, who without hesitation, without concern for their safety ran toward gunfire to protect innocent victims. By confronting and neutralizing Bowers, they prevented additional loss of life,” Brady said.The shooting rattled nerves across the country and globe and prompting an outpouring of support and condolences.In New York, the Empire State Building went dark except for an orange halo on the mast to honor the victims. In Paris, the Eiffel Tower also went dark in homage to the victims.Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto said the city of Pittsburgh will stand by the victims’ families and help them get through the tragedy.“Pittsburgh is a strong town. We are a resilient city,” Peduto said at Sunday’s news conference. “We’ll get through this darkest day in Pittsburgh’s history by working together.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
