Between the stones and the water. A lot located in the mountain range of Los Altos, treading geographically within the city of San Bernardino, with romantic sunset views over the famous Ypacaraí lake, which has become the historical scene of the summer life of many Paraguayans, is the site where we were summoned to project a weekend house to be enjoyed by families and friends. With a rugged topography and rocky terrain, the picturesque and steep location suggested the idea of implementing the program in such a way to generate a stepped succession of terraces that allow users to enjoy the landscape from different perspectives and times of the day.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezWithin this logic and according to the hierarchical order of the environments of a home, we decided to arrange the spaces in three superimposed and dislocated volumes. The garage and the service areas were located in the lowest sector of the lot, serving as an expansion of the volume of the social area, which perches open to the landscape and integrates themes related to leisure. The dining room and gourmet cuisine are placed in a single ludic gallery on the third level, while the volume of the private spaces is composed by three en-suite bedrooms with a linear balcony that dampens the incidence of the afternoon sun. As the upper enclosure and thermal mattress of the rooms, a final panoramic terrace was raised to further allow the enjoyment of the exuberance of the green and the portrait of the lake under the setting sun.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezRegarding the construction work, the materiality has a key role. Initially intended to be projected in ceramic bricks on a reinforced concrete structure, the Peak House experienced a ‘before and after’ during the excavation process. An internal regulation of the condominium limits the buildable height regarding the front of each lot, in order to guarantee the views to those lots located successively behind. This complex and challenging task was responsible for the discovery of the charm of this hill while removing the quarry. A large number of stones that, far from being considered rubble to be removed, became our allied raw material for any enclosure that was not made of glass and any idea that could be executed with hammers, chisels, levers and a little ingenuity. In this way, we managed to optimize the use of the stone of the site and thus compensate for energy expenses and cost overruns for the purchase and transfer of foreign materials. Finally, the project gained its own identity by being harmoniously merged with the site and the landscape in turn to functionally meet the requirements of an interesting weekend house.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezProject gallerySee allShow lessMachelen Workshop & Office Spaces / WE-S architectenSelected Projects6 Social Housing Units / Atelier 56SSelected Projects Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932507/peak-house-omcm-arquitectos Clipboard Peak House / OMCM arquitectosSave this projectSavePeak House / OMCM arquitectos Save this picture!© Leonardo Méndez+ 29Curated by Clara Ott Share “COPY” Architects: OMCM arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project 2019center_img Year:  Area:  513 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/932507/peak-house-omcm-arquitectos Clipboard ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeOMCM arquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSan BernardinoOn FacebookParaguayPublished on January 29, 2020Cite: “Peak House / OMCM arquitectos” [Casa Peak / OMCM arquitectos] 29 Jan 2020.

Methuselah Seed Now a Tree

first_imgThe world’s oldest viable seed is now a tree 8 feet tall.  The Methuselah palm, discovered in the 1960s as a seed at the Judean fortress of Masada, sprouted in 2005 under controlled conditions.  It is the oldest seed verified by radiocarbon dating to be 2,000 years old – from the time the Romans were besieging the mountain fortress built by Herod the Great. The Jerusalem Post1 reported that the palm tree, now 2.5 meters tall, has been transplanted to a kibbutz in the Arava (Jordan rift) in southern Israel, where botanists will analyze its genetic lineage for clues.  They expect the tree (the first of several that sprouted) will produce edible fruit and perhaps medicinal compounds, which were valued in ancient times.  Modern date palms from the region are genetically different from the ones known to the ancients, which disappeared from the land in the time of the Crusaders.  These trees are depicted on Roman coins from the period.  “The species was known then to have therapeutic qualities and a delicious taste,” the Jerusalem Post said. Wikipedia considers this the oldest viable seed directly dated by radiocarbon.  Other contenders are claimed anecdotally to be 3,000 or 4,000 years old, but proof is lacking. 1. Hat tip to Bible Places Blog for this lead. Could humans create a car that could still drive after 2,000 years?  This is truly amazing.  A seed – a tiny package of life, containing molecular machines and a library of code – still worked, despite millennia of cosmic rays and other mutagens.  This means that DNA repair mechanisms must have still been at work inside this dormant package.   Don’t underestimate the wonder of seeds.  It would be historic to taste a date shake from the Methuselah tree.  Just hope they don’t start a new line of Christmas fruitcakes with it. So that we don’t end on a bad taste, here’s a joke, or shall we say, j-oak.  Q: What does an acorn say when it grows up?  A: Geometry.(Visited 60 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Viva l’Italia!

first_imgJacob DlaminiIt was not until an American friend pointed it out to me that I realised that South Africans are obsessed with Italy and all things Italian. Why is it, asked the friend during a visit to South Africa last year, that everything that is meant to be something in South Africa has either an Italian name or Italian as an adjective? It is true. Think of all the “Tuscan-style villas”, which are in reality ugly townhouse complexes made off the same basic plan, that dot every major city and town in the country. What about the Bella Donnas and the Via-this and Via-that you find everywhere you care to look?Then there are the “Italian” tiles, taps, marble and everything in between, including the kitchen sink, that cost a couple of grands extra because they are, well, Italian. What is up with that? Whence comes this fixation, this obsession with Italy and all its things? There is none of the colonial connection between South Africa and Italy that marks the latter’s history with Ethiopia and Eritrea, for example. I am told by an Ethiopian friend that even with that history, Ethiopians have none of the mania about Italy that South Africans have. Eritreans might play on their Italian history every now and again, my Ethiopian friend says, but even they have none of the complex and passion we South Africans have.The biggest addiction of all is in the area of clothes. Who can forget all the shops that used to line the streets of downtown Johannesburg and other cities and towns, shops with original names like Real Italian Fashion Store and Italian-Style Clothing Store? Then there were and still are places that specialise in “real Italian leather”, “genuine Italian shoes” and “real Italian fashions”. How many of these goods are actually Italian or imports from Italy? How many of them can be said to be the genuine article? You know, real leather from a genuine Italian cow? How many of them have a genuine Italian provenance?I remember a time in the 1980s when Gauteng townships were hit by an Italian craze. Everywhere you went, hip men and women would be dressed in “Matariana-style”, complete with Superga, the Italian tennis shoe that resembles the more popular Converse All-Star in its look. Sometimes, people dressed Matariana-style would wear shirts called Georgettes. I could never tell whether Georgette referred to the fabric or the design of the shirt. The shirts looked like men’s blouses to me. Expensive blouses. But hip people rocked those shirts like they were going out of fashion, which they thankfully did before the 1980s were out.Then there was, of course, the Lacoste polo T-shirt. Everyone wanted one of these T-shirts. The bolder the colour, the better. I remember the colour red being especially popular. Folks would have wardrobes full of those T-shirts.But it did not take long for some to start noticing that the crocodile on the front logo on the Lacoste T-shirts of many of those who favoured Matariana-style was not quite the genuine article. The mouth of this crocodile was opened particularly wide and was, shall we say, more boisterous than the crocodile you see on the genuine article. It was not long before townships sprouted Lacoste “experts”, people who claimed they could tell the real McCoy stuff from a mile away. It was mostly bunkum, of course. Most of these Matariana-style clothes were sourced from the same textile factories somewhere to the west of Johannesburg.South Africans are not unique in obsessing over other nations. Remember the German philosopher who complained about the French making the revolutions the Germans had thought about first? Speaking of the French, how often do we hear people extolling the virtues of the French as if they and only they know how to live. Joie de vivre and all of that je ne sais quoi malarkey! Then there are nations constantly going on about what a better world this would be if we all could keep time like the Germans. Was it not, after all, one of the fascist justifications for Benito Mussolini’s reign in early 20th century Italy that while he might have been a crap ruler, he at least got the trains to run on time? Like the Germans, presumably.The Brits may have, as some historians maintain, founded their empire in a fit of absentmindedness but we cannot ignore the fact that they may also have been driven by their pining for the sunshine enjoyed by others. Methinks the fact that the whole cheap flight business first took off in the UK is precisely because the Brits are still hankering after the sunshine of others. They cannot wait to get out of their own island.With regard to South Africa’s obsession with Italy, one must assume that the existence of so many Bella Vistas and Bella Donnas and “Italian restaurants” is not yet the problem I think it is. After all, one would expect the Post Office and Telkom to have insisted that the owners of these places come up with something more creative and original for names. Don’t get me wrong, I have no beef with South Africa’s obsession with Italy. I just wish someone would explain it to me, though.Jacob Dlamini is a PhD student in History at Yale University, a columnist for The Weekender, and former political editor of Business Day.last_img read more

Etihad’s first Perth flight touches down

first_imgA330-200 Arrives A330-200 Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, today commenced daily, non-stop services between Perth and Abu Dhabi.  Dsepite todays inaugral flightbeing operated by an A340-600 , the Perth route will be serviced with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft with 262 seats – 22 seats in Pearl Business Class and 240 in Coral Economy Class.             Read: Etihad’s Economy and Business Class The inaugural flight – EY486 – touched down at Perth International Airport at 1.10pm where it was greeted by a water cannon salute and a traditional ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony by members of the local Indigenous community.  Perth is the fourth gateway to be served by Etihad in Australia alongside Brisbane, Melbourne and SydneyEtihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer James Hogan said Perth was a strategically important addition to Etihad Airways’ Australian and global network. “Today’s inaugural flight creates the first commercial air link between Perth and Abu Dhabi and marks the beginning of an exciting new era of partnership between the state of Western Australia and the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi and Perth are each popular business travel and holiday destinations – attracting 2.8 million and 7.3 million visitors respectively in 2013 – and we are already seeing a strong commercial response to the new route from travellers in the UAE and Western Australia.”Mr Hogan also pointed to data which shows that Western Australia is the largest contributor to trade between the UAE and Australia, accounting for 57 per cent of the $A6.4 billion total in 2013. “With two-way trade between the UAE and Western Australia growing at an annual rate of between 25 to 30 per cent in recent years we are forecasting strong demand for our cargo business.” The new Perth flights offer an attractive and compelling proposition for travellers to and from the GCC countries, Middle East, Africa, Europe and USA with the convenience of one stop in Abu Dhabi. Cities such as Cairo, Dublin, London, Manchester, Doha, Jeddah, Beirut and New York will now be linked seamlessly with the Western Australian capital.  Mr Hogan noted interest in travel to Western Australia – particularly from the Middle East, UK, Ireland, Europe and east coast USA and pledged to work with the airline’s government and industry partners to develop these visitor markets.               Read: Etihad one of only 11 airlines in the world to be awarded the seven star double ratingBrad Geatches, Chief Executive Officer of Perth Airport said: “We are very excited to welcome Etihad Airways to Perth today. We have been working with the airline for some time now and it is pleasing to celebrate the arrival of the inaugural flight. We believe there is a significant opportunity to contribute to the state’s economic success by offering international tourists convenient connections to Western Australia – in 2013 alone tourism contributed $A7.7 billion to the West Australian economy through visitor spend.”The commencement of Etihad Airways’ Perth operations will add approximately 190,000 annual seats from Perth to the Middle East.Mr Hogan said Etihad Airways’ partnership with Virgin Australia enabled it to offer connectivity to towns and cities outside the Perth metropolitan area and brought new competition to these markets. “When the construction of the Domestic Pier at Perth Airport’s Terminal 1 is complete, Etihad Airways and its codeshare partner Virgin Australia will be co-located in one terminal enabling easy connections to Virgin’s domestic network, as well as regional connections in the nearby Terminal 2. Our partnership with Virgin Australia enables us to offer codeshare flights from Perth to 13 regional airports throughout the state of Western Australia. Guests can now connect seamlessly between Virgin Australia’s regional network and Etihad Airways’ global network with the convenience of through-checked baggage, a single ticket purchase and convenient transfer times.”Travellers can connect to Etihad Airways’ international flights by flying with Virgin Australia from Albany, Broome, Busselton, Derby, Esperance, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Kununurra, Karratha, Paraburdoo, Port Hedland, Ravensthorpe and Newman.Virgin Australia will also place its VA code on Etihad Airways’ Perth-Abu Dhabi flights. New Abu Dhabi-Perth schedule, effective immediately: Destination Abu Dhabi 22:10 Daily Perth                             Note: All departures and arrivals are listed in local timeRead: Etihad’s Nanny Service Frequency Flight No. EY487 Abu Dhabi Perth Daily EY486 13:10+1 23:25 15:55 Aircraft Origin Departslast_img read more

Is more IoT driving more cyber attacks?

first_imgTags:#cyber attack#cyber security#hacking#malware#ransomware#security#WannaCry#x-code ghost How Data Analytics Can Save Lives Follow the Puck AI: How it’s Impacting Surveillance Data Storage Related Posts center_img Fei Zhao The WannaCry ransomware attack from this May made the whole world think about cyber security issues once again. Another unique point for WannaCry versus previous cyber attacks is IoT also got involved with the crisis as well. We learned from the news reports that this worm virus was different from usual. It had not only tried to encrypt computer data, but it had also attacked connected devices such as medical and teaching equipment in hospitals and schools. This is also why this May’s cyber attack has influenced so many industries.IoT has minimized the barrier between the Internet and devices. Once one of these two is attacked, the other one would also be involved inevitably. As for the IoT security, cameras on our smart devices and smart homes are the most associated aspect of every one of us and may have influence on our everyday life.Thanks to the IoT technology, we can remote control those connected cameras. Even if we are not home, we still can access these devices and check our properties. However, just because we are using those connected cameras and devices, if we do not do a good job in terms of security, such as utilizing weak passwords, or even no pin, criminals could easily access and control our devices by large scale scanning. According to Gao Sheng, senior software engineer from China’s national Internet Emergency Center, passcodes like “user”, ”admin”, and pure numbers have been widely used, and are the easiest ones to decrypt and hack.See Also: How tweaks to IoT’s supply chain can close security gapsWorldwide ThreatsAs the concept of a connected world is becoming more and more popular, different types of smart home appliances have become first choice for millions of families. And because of this, the cyber attacks on IoT are changing to multiple modes. Outlaws can access all connected appliances by only hacking one router. According to Helpnetsecurity, U.S. (28%) and China (7%) are the two countries that experience the most cyber attacks. In 2015, the X-code Ghost incident had deeply influenced China’s iOS development environment.  It still reigns as the most famous cyber security accident regarding the Internet and IoT in China.Lots of Chinese developers used an unofficial iOS development kit that had been modified by malware, later dubbed X-code Ghost. The malware injected third party code into apps compiled with it. Since this attack happen on the developer side at compile time, even jail broken devices were affected. The X-code Ghost incident influenced lots of popular apps that have billions of users, such as WeChat, Didi, and so on. Both of these popular apps affect every facet of Chinese user’s normal life because of IoT.IoT security attacks caused because of the Internet will not only impact normal people’s life, but also produce more serious problems to large-scale enterprises. Based on the report titled Toward New Possibilities in Threat Management from Price Waterhouse Coopers in 2017, the number of cyber attacks in the East Asia region has rapidly increased by 969%, and security incidents of industrial IoT have increased over 22x. Due to most enterprises using semi-automatic production models, and the popularity of smart connected systems, countless IoT devices have been utilized into the production process. But, many parts of these devices are still keeping the factory passwords, which are weak pins like “user” and “admin”.They Get You Coming in and Going OutFor general users like us, right now, there are two kinds of cyber attacks: inbound and outbound. Inbound cyber attacks target our smart devices like phones, tablets, or cameras directly. DNS Amplification Attacks are common outbound attacks, with over 80% of family level cyber attacks resulting from router issues. To this point, Helpnetsecurity suggested three tips to actively avoid attacks. First, we need to periodically change the passcode of our smart devices and family Internet. Second, do not connect to unknown Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices. Last but not least, upgrade device software in a timely fashion.Nowadays, both iOS and Android will send out an upgraded version regularly, even every app on our phone will release upgrades frequently. Some users think these upgrades are annoying and choose to shut down this function, but most of the upgrades are related to security issues. As normal users, timely upgrading of our devices and apps is our best way to increase our cyber safety. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more
