The site has a strong rural character, with small plantations, orchards and pathways limited by roughly made stone property walls and, once in a while, houses, scattered in the landscape.

While the upper half of the site is ramped, the lower is built in steps. In the transition between both two clear references became the starting point for the project: a walnut tree and a watering tank. Save this picture!The first site visits immediately suggested a volume lying on the slope, facing the entrance walkway and sheltering the house from the neighbours while opening the interior views to the southern valley. Save this picture!The site’s natural beauty dictated the project. The house develops in an intimate relation with the ground, penetrating it as the slope increases and eventually becoming part of the mountain where one can walk; then it is displaced while descending, reappearing on the slope. A long volume was then drawn, like a line bent over itself and over the water tank and the tree. Save this picture!Between those elements the primary exterior space was created. Along the house courtyards were excavated building spaces of intimacy and peace, generally lacking in an overexposed context: the entrance courtyard, the guestroom courtyard and the one of the corridor. Save this picture!The edges of this tubular form bifurcate interacting in different ways with the exterior: the end of the main room is narrow and high overlooking the eastern valley; the wide and low end of the living room is suspended over the southern valley. The private area of the house is serviced by an austere corridor whose ends represent opposite realities: the northern one opens to an intimate courtyard dug on the ground whilst the southern one opens to vast landscape, with the walnut tree in the foreground and the mountain in the distance.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessGlass bottling Plant Cristalchile / Guillermo HeviaSelected ProjectsThe Eyelid House / Fiona Winzar ArchitectsSelected Projects Share House in Romeirão / ARX PortugalSave this projectSaveHouse in Romeirão / ARX Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/6657/house-in-romeirao-arx Clipboard Area: 340 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: ARX PORTUGAL Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Year: 2002 “COPY” “COPY” Portugal CopyAbout this officeARX PORTUGALOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesEriceiraPortugalPublished on September 24, 2008Cite: “House in Romeirão / ARX Portugal” 24 Sep 2008.

Yet, as a nation we are still woefully short on ventilators. This is a massive fail.Some people just are not getting it: We’re not on adult summer vacation. Hanging out at the Rose Bowl loop without practicing social distancing is not just irresponsible, it’s idiotic. How hard is it to stay the hell home so we can stop the spread of the virus? It doesn’t matter if you want to believe it or not, the pandemic is happening.Now that’s stupid: Gun stores are essential businesses? Yeah, because you have to go out and get a gun during the pandemic.Apparently common sense is non-essential and has been shut down. Seriously, Newsom should have just shut down the gun stores.Some COVID-19 observations:What will the antivaxxers do after a COVID-19 vaccine is developed? If they have any sense, they will roll up their sleeves like everybody else.Remember when I said there will be a baby boom in nine months? That means in 2033, we will see the rise of the Quaran-teens. I’ll be just about 70, and telling them to stay off my boomer lawn. I didn’t come up with that one, but it’s still a cool observation.You don’t like Trump, so why are you taking the money: Because it’s money, and I’m still not voting for him.Shout out to the County: It took the county 24 days to count the ballots from the March 3 election. It took the state of Florida about 34 days to count the ballots in the Bush-Gore presidential debacle, and Florida had less technology and in some places they counted by hand.More on the count: District 5 Councilman Victor Gordo and Mayor Terry Tornek will meet again in November. Felicia Williams will join Tyron Hampton, Gene Masuda, Steve Madison and the winner in the mayor’s race when they are sworn in in December.That crew, along with John Kennedy, Andy Wilson and the District 5 Councilman will continue to lead the city’s economic post-pandemic recovery. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News Opinion & Columnists Political Gumbo: Ventilators, the Loop, Common Sense and the County Count Random thoughts on the COVID-19 pandemic and the March 3 election count By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 | 1:00 am Top of the News CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Subscribe STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Evgen_Prozhyrko/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(ODESSA, Texas) — Cops in western Texas said they arrested a bar owner and a group of armed men Monday after they violated the state’s order.Ector County Sheriff Mike Griffis said during a news conference Tuesday that his officers were alerted that the owner of Big Daddy Zane’s in West Odessa, Texas, opened her bar even though Gov. Wayne Abbott’s reopening plan explicitly mandated that bars remain closed. When officers arrived, they saw six men in body armor and armed rifles standing outside the establishment, according to Griffis.“This was not a protest of their second amendment rights. It was a show of force to ensure this lady could violate the governor’s order,” Griffis told reporters.The officers arrested the owner and charged her for violating the governor’s orders and arrested the armed men for having weapons on a licensed property, Griffis said. The owner will be fined, according to the sheriff.Abbott’s reopening plan, which went into effect Friday, allowed for restaurants and stores to reopen but with only a limited number of patrons. Bars were not included in the first phase of the plan.Attorney information for the owner and the suspects was not immediately available. The bar posted a Facebook event scheduled for May 4 called “Bars and bartenders standing united,” which had a photo of armed men in body armor posing in an undisclosed location.“They will be here to help protect our rights as a small business owner to open and be able to feed our families,” according to the post.Griffis said he didn’t have more details about the armed men, but said they were not from the town and they were there to intimidate people. He acknowledged the hardships that people are facing because of the coronavirus restrictions, but said there are more civilized ways to express their frustration with the governor’s order.“If you don’t like this, go ahead and vote for another governor,” he said.Griffis reiterated that the virus is a very serious health risk and people should take the precautions seriously. As of Monday, 84 people in Ector County contracted the virus, and four died from it, according to data from the state and the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Texas has 32,783 confirmed cases and 901 related deaths as of Monday, the Johns Hopkins data showed. On Thursday, the number of positive cases in the state increased by 1,033, the biggest one-day jump in three weeks, according to health officials.“This is all new to us. It’s all new to the officials,” Griffis said. “My message here is, ‘Let’s work together.’” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
By Dialogo April 13, 2011 “Intelligence Act Seeks to Protect the Population”: Ministry of Defense Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera said on 12 April that the proposed Intelligence Act now making its way through the Congress of the Republic seeks to better protect citizens from criminal and terrorist threats, while also providing guarantees against any abuses that might occur in the course of that activity. “The aim is to protect the population from the bandits, through intelligence that concentrates on discovering and neutralizing them, and also to defend the population from abuses, so that surveillance and intelligence activities are not deployed against targets unrelated to crime or to threats to the country’s security,” Rivera maintained during a session of the First Commission of the House of Representatives held to present and discuss the bill. He added that another objective is to “protect intelligence agents who comply with the law, so that they can carry out their tasks with full immunity from any judicial or disciplinary dispute.” According to the Minister, the bill aims to create a legal framework regulating the intelligence activities of all state institutions carrying out this task in the country, now or in the future. The bill establishes “some specific purposes, an appropriate juridical framework, some limitations, an oversight mechanism, some checks, and a purging of the intelligence data itself” that is gathered by these entities, he stated. And he added, “The law is going to give order to a process of purging all these databases, with checks and guarantees. The Public Prosecutor’s Office is going to head an interinstitutional commission for this purpose, so that there will be transparency, and there is also going to be oversight by the political parties.” The high-ranking official emphasized that the initiative clearly establishes that no one may be included in these databases for reasons other than illegal activity. “One concept that’s very clear is that no one can be in intelligence databases for reasons of race, sex, gender, ideological convictions, or membership in a party or organization of a legal nature, and that the only records that can be there are those that should be there because they refer to criminals or to individuals who really constitute a threat to public safety,” he affirmed. Rivera Salazar underlined the fundamental role intelligence plays in the struggle to protect Colombians. “In recent years, intelligence has been one of the major explanations for the achievements and progress on security that we’ve had in Colombia, and it’s an indispensable element without which a goal as ambitious as the one being proposed by President Santos, defeating violence, could not be achieved,” he declared. The Defense Minister maintained that approval of the bill will make it possible to remedy what he called a “gray area” resulting from the lack of specific regulations on the subject of intelligence. “What this bill seeks is that there be no gray areas, that we be able to put this in black and white: white what we can do, clearly defined, and black what we can’t do, clearly defined, so that once the Intelligence Act has been passed, we’ll be able to have one fundamental guiding verb, which is the verb ‘to protect,’” he specified.
