The first time we visited the site, the spiritual retreat house of a religious community emerged from it. We climbed onto the roof of a four-story building with no protection other than a four-inch overhang on the perimeter and we were struck by the sight. From that eerie elevated, unprotected position, we seemed to dominate the entire valley.

In order to avoid the impact of a 92m long and 6 storeys height, we shaped the project into a sort of three arms star, curving its footprint to smooth the perspectives. The most exposed façade was designed using a cracked pattern allowing us to turn the windows off the flat line, and protecting them with long perforated scales. Their function were to protect the windows from an overly aggressive afternoon sun without giving up the fascinating views. It is presented as a tribute to Mozarabic architecture, so typical from Granada, so rich in its play of light and shadow. The challenge was not to fall into a crude imitation, but to transcend the geometric catalog of Mudejar motifs without losing the force of the light filtered through the small holes. Thus, a set of triangular perforations is intuited that, due to the need to adapt to the technical and structural requirements of the material, is finally defined by a small parametric algorithm of plastic genesis.Save this picture!© Diego OpazoSave this picture!© Diego OpazoThe result is a thousand buildings in one.

first_imgThe Catawba River was recently named the most endangered river in the country. It stretches from the mountains of North Carolina to the Wateree Watershed in South Carolina and then to the Atlantic Ocean. From source to sea, it flows over 400 miles. Along the way, it meets several challenges: coal ash ponds, dams, agricultural draws, nutrient and sewage spills and recreation and drinking water needs for a growing population.One man is working to protect the river. His name is Rick Gaskins, a Harvard educated environmental lawyer and the executive director of the Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation.Just how bad is the Catawba currently?In 2008, American Rivers, an organization that works to protect America’s waterways, rated the Catawba as America’s Most Endangered River (download the PDF report here). Plus, just this year, American Rivers rated the Catawba as the fifth worst river in the United States due to coal ash pollution. In 2010 and 2012, The Southern Environmental Law Center, a nonprofit that uses the law to fight for protection of the Southeastern environment, listed the Catawba River as one of the top ten endangered places in the Southeast.  In 2011, the Union of Concerned Scientists, an organization that uses science to push for policy change, found, due to power plants, that the Catawba was the fourth most stressed river in the United States.Which sections of the Catawba are in the worst shape? That is hard to answer. If the standard is whether the Catawba is fishable, for example, then one hundred percent of the basin fails to meet the unrestricted fishability standard. There are fish advisories throughout the Catawba basin for excessive levels of mercury in some types of fish. Burning coal is the primary source for most mercury found in the water. High levels of mercury affect the neurological development of children and can cause learning disabilities and other lifelong disabilities. High levels of mercury are especially toxic to children and pregnant women.Is the river getting better or worse? There is some improvement. For example, Charlotte has worked hard to restore the natural state of the tributaries to the Catawba, even instituting buffer areas. Also, some sewage plants are doing better treating sewage. However, the overall trend is not good.Do you ever use litigation to help protect the Catawba?At times we use litigation to solve issues, but that is our last resort. Our first step is to talk to the source of the problem.  If the source does not correct the issue, then we contact the appropriate regulatory body, hoping for an enforcement action.We’re currently involved in litigation against the North Carolina Department of Transportation to stop a proposed toll road that would potentially damage water over discharges from coal ash lakes into Mountain Island Lake, part of the Catawba River. This discharge is a direct threat to Charlotte’s drinking water.How about lobbying legislators? We aren’t large enough to have paid lobbyists, but we encourage members to use grassroots lobbying. We get information to our volunteers so they can talk to their legislators. When there is a bill that directly affects the waterway, then the foundation might rent a van and take volunteers to their legislators in Raleigh.Is it true that the Catawba could run out of water?Current projections are that the region’s demand for water will exceed our quantity of water by the year 2048. Industry and agriculture must use less water. Forty-eight percent of the water consumed from the Catawba is used for cooling power plants. This can and should be reduced. Also, a big chunk of the water is consumed by towns outside the basin. In short, these towns want water from the Catawba River, but they don’t return water to the Catawba. This must be regulated.What are the biggest threats to the Catawba? Coal-burning power plants and their coal ash waste storage. On any scale, coal ash ponds surrounding the Catawba are given the highest hazard potential. Other major water quality problems are by-products of poor development practices that result in large amounts of polluted storm water, poor treatment of sewage, and excessive water usage. Sewage spills and inadequate treatment of sewage are also a major problem. Sewage systems fail with regularity. State regulators are underfunded; one inspector might be responsible for thousands of sites. And even when current regulations are enforced, they are not enough to maintain a high level of water quality.How do dams affect the river and its natural environment?  There are 14 dams along the length of the Catawba.  These are primarily used to generate electricity and to create a source of cooling water for thermoelectric power plants. Power plants use the water for cooling, then they dump hot water into the Catawba after using it.There are sections of the Catawba that rest between two power plants, one upstream and one downstream. During peak power usage this particular section will have little to no water flow. In fact, it might have backward flow if the power plant upstream is larger than the plant downstream.last_img read more

first_imgBRO – We are featuring “All Hands” on this month’s Trail Mix. What’s the story behind the song? TB – This is a song about my past and growing up in the west end of St. John’s, a place and a time I’ve thought about more than ever now that I’ve moved away. More than ever, too, I’ve been really into making songs that are personally significant to me. So, slowly, this chorus that I couldn’t stop singing grew into a sort of nostalgic anthem about going back home and back to the past, if not in life then at least in death. I guess it’s a song of homesickness and youthsickness on my part, and perhaps, to a degree, I was thinking of the Newfoundland diaspora at large, or any diaspora really, of which you may encounter many here in Toronto. But it ends up celebratory, sort of reveling in the fact that there is this place that is an inescapable part of me, along with all the people there that I’ve loved and learned from and been shaped by. And it feels like an inescapable part of your past must inevitably be part of your future as well. One of my favourite things is when a reason for despair turns out to be also a reason for celebration, almost simultaneously. It feels good to sing this. And be sure to check out “All Hands,” along with new tracks from The Yawpers, Shovels & Rope, Mekons, and Driftwood on this month’s Trail Mix. Now, founding member and singer Tim Baker is returning with his debut solo record, Forever Overhead, which will be hitting the streets next week. Drawing from a wellspring of 70’s era songwriters whose songs punctuated his childhood, Baker, on his new record, has curated a simply gorgeous set of songs. TB – Oh my. Well, it depends on what you like. If you like mountains and sun and wildlife and walks by the water, then I was say you out to go to Gros Morne National Park. If you like a pint and a tune and a few tall tales, then I’d go roam around downtown St. John’s, namely Bannerman Brewing Company or Mallard Cottage or The Duke, but there’s plenty of places to find. Really, wherever you go, you’ll be alright. You’ll want to find someone older and have a cup of tea with them if you can. And get out in a boat. But, for Godsakes, bring a jacket. Tim Baker will be celebrating the release of his new record with two shows in his hometown of St. John’s – most likely jacket clad – next weekend. Early May will find him in the USA, with shows in New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Vermont, and Massachusetts on the calendar. For more information on Tim Baker, his touring schedule, or how you can grab a copy of Forever Overhead, please surf over to his website. Go ahead. Ask me who my favorite band from Newfoundland is. Well, Hey Rosetta! of course! TB – You know, it is important to me. And I knew that, of course, we all know that, but it hit me really hard when I did move up to Toronto. At home in Newfoundland, I used to be a five minute drive to the ocean or the woods. Now, it takes me an hour to get to any real sort of open space. I suppose an hour, but I don’t really know to be honest. I don’t get out into it much. It’s been a busy year here in the city. But I walk and run in the park by my house, which is a real park with trails and such. And just yesterday I was walking and I had to take out my phone and take a picture because the trees looked so good and I thought how amazing it was that, after all I’d seen that day, as I’d been working on my computer in the seven hours prior to this on the internet, which has anything you could ever want to or not want to see, that I was still so moved by a couple of trees in the dirt that I had to capture it and then digitize it to share it! I believe the Earth is the purest and wisest and most fundamental, important, and beautiful thing we have and I try to live according to that.center_img TB – Well, not to take the question too literally, but I feel good when I look at it, mostly because the design of the record, by Nico Paulo, is so good. As to whether it’s strange to see my name there instead of my band’s name, I hadn’t really thought about it. Just today, actually, I was laying my copy onto my record shelf and had a moment where I couldn’t decide whether to put it next to the Hey Rosetta! records, in their own little section, or whether to put it off on it own with the Ts. I lay it there with the others. How far we should read into that, I don’t know. BRO – If I had to spend one day in Newfoundland, what is my one can’t miss destination? In the run up to the album’s release, Baker also released a tremendous video for the single “Dance,” which was directed by long time friend and fellow Newfoundlander Jordan Canning, known for his work on the delightfully irreverent comedy Schitt’s Creek. TB – Ron Hynes is a legendary songwriter from home that never fails to inspire me to write harder. Amelia Curran is similarly gifted. If you’re ever in St. John’s and The Pathological Liars are playing, you should see that, but they haven’t recorded now in years. And I just saw this new band, Villages, the other day. They’re actually from Nova Scotia, but they are very much worth mentioning because they are doing their Cape Breton Celtic thing in such a cool and refreshing way. I recently caught up with Tim Baker to chat about venturing out as a solo artist, finding time to get outside, and where I should go if I find myself in Newfoundland. BRO – Any other musicians from Newfoundland that our readers should check out? BRO – Nature seems to be pretty important to you. How do you satisfy the itch to get outside while living in Toronto? BRO – How does if feel to have your name on the cover of this record after years of recording with Hey Rosetta!? Now, for full disclosure, I have to admit that Hey Rosetta! was the only band I knew of from Newfoundland before I wrote this, but they were a damned good one prior to taking a hiatus in late 2017, having garnered numerous JUNO and Polaris awards in their native Canada.last_img read more

first_imgCollege fantasy football lives and dies with offense, and Week 11 has several games guaranteed to produce some offensive DFS fireworks. From LSU at Alabama to San Jose State at Hawaii to Iowa State at Oklahoma, there are plenty of great matchups and potential sleepers on this week’s DraftKings slate.Before getting into this week’s picks, just a reminder that if you’re looking for more help setting your season-long or DFS lineups, check out the comprehensive Week 11 college fantasy football rankings at CFBDynasty. Every week, CFBDynasty provides college fantasy football player rankings for each position based on projected fantasy points. Use promo code “sportingnews” to save 25 percent on your membership, which gets you access to all of their exclusive weekly content.WEEK 10 NFL DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPP Week 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: QBsBest Start: Jamie Newman, Wake Forest at Virginia Tech ($8,400). Newman returned in Week 10 from a shoulder injury to put up 317 total yards and five TDs in less than three quarters. This week he gets to face a Virginia Tech defense that is giving up more than 400 yards and four TDs per game. That, coupled with a projected 63.5-point over/under, should give Newman plenty of opportunities for another big performance. Best Value: Brock Purdy, Iowa State at Oklahoma ($7,900). Purdy has been somewhat inconsistent this season from a fantasy perspective, ranging from 16 fantasy points in a game all the way up to 55. This week Iowa State goes on the road to take on Oklahoma in Norman. Purdy should have all the work he can handle as the Cyclones try to keep pace with the powerful Sooner offense. Best Sleeper: Kyle Trask, Florida vs Vanderbilt ($6,400). Trask has been very impressive since taking over for the injured Feleipe Franks, averaging 247 passing yards and at least two TDs over the past six games. This week the Gators host SEC rival Vanderbilt, whose defense currently 99th in passing and 103rd in scoring, should not provide much of a hindrance. Trask should be able to put up some big numbers.MORE: CFBDynasty player rankingsWeek 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: RBsBest Start: Max Borghi, Washington State at California ($7,800). Borghi’s all around game is what makes him so valuable, both to the Cougars and fantasy owners. Last week Oregon held Borghi to only 54 rushing yards and one TD on eight carries, but he made up for the lack of rushing by catching eight passes for another 70 yards. This week Washington State goes on the road to take on California, whose early-season defensive dominance has slipped in recent games. Look for Borghi to be used all over the field as one of the Cougars primary offensive weapons. Best Value: Breece Hall, Iowa State at Oklahoma State ($6,800). Since being unleashed in Week 7, Hall has had three straight games with at least 30 fantasy points. This week’s matchup with Oklahoma will be against a much tougher opponent, but Hall’s big-game potential is definitely worth using. The Cyclones have found their bellcow RB and will continue to ride him.Best Sleeper: David Bailey, Boston College vs. Florida State ($4,700). While he is currently stuck behind superstar RB A.J. Dillon, Bailey has still put up solid numbers, including going over 170 yards and two TDs in two of the past three weeks. Boston College loves to pound the footbal,l and this week’s matchup against Florida State’s mediocre run defense will be a great opportunity for both RBs to do just that. Week 11 College Fantasy Football DFS Picks: WRsBest Start: James Proche, SMU vs. East Carolina ($7,300). Proche has been spectacular in the SMU offense this season, scoring double-digit fantasy points in every game this season, including seven games of over 20 fantasy points. The injury to fellow WR Reggie Roberson has increased his usage, and last week Proche took full advantage, turning 13 receptions into 149 yards and a touchdown. He will continue to the Mustangs’ primary target in Week 11 as SMU hosts East Carolina.Best Value: Devin Duvernay, Texas vs. Kansas State ($6,500). Duvernay has been a fantasy monster this season, averaging almost nine receptions for 100 yards and one TD per game. He should have another big game as QB Sam Ehlinger will continue to look his way this week in a tough matchup against Big 12 rival Kansas State. Best Sleeper: Corey Sutton, Appalachian State at South Carolina ($5,200). Sutton has been solid since returning from a two-game suspension to open the season, catching 28 passes for 345 yards and three TDs. The Mountaineers will need a huge game from his this week as they try to keep pace on the road with SEC opponent South Carolina. Look for Appalachian to throw to Sutton early and often.last_img read more

first_imgAn incredulous Bob Arum labeled Andres Gutierrez a “disgrace” after the fighter was pulled out of his WBC super featherweight world title eliminator against Oscar Valdez for weighing in a stunning 11 pounds over the limit.Valdez’s debut at 130 pounds will now come against late replacement Adam Lopez, who was previously scheduled to appear on the undercard. Veteran promoter Arum told FightHype.com: “I’ve seen a guy two or three pounds overweight, that’s still unprofessional. To come in 11 pounds overweight is a f—ing disgrace. We’re throwing him out of the hotel.”Join DAZN to watch Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 and 100-plus fight nights a yearAsked if there was any chance of Valdez still facing Gutierrez, Arum added: “I am not allowing, and neither would the commission allow, a fight to go ahead at 130 when a guy comes in 11 pounds over that. You’re not allowed. There’s rules.”Gutierrez was duly suspended by the WBC, which lamented his “embarrassing and extraordinary action” in a statement. WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said: “What just happened in Las Vegas is of extreme concern. Gutierrez is officially suspended by the WBC and we will initiate a thorough investigation of the facts.”Before Lopez’s promotion to the main event was confirmed, a dejected Valdez made it clear he was still willing to face Gutierrez.”My immediate reaction was ‘I’ll still fight him,’ because now there’s even more anger. Now I really want to get in there and really kick your ass.” @CrystinaPoncher with @oscarvaldez56 , who has even more motivation now against a new opponent. #ValdezLopez | TOMORROW | ESPN+ pic.twitter.com/L4ZWhOv7Eo— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) November 30, 2019″It’s unbelievable. I had to hear it [Gutierrez’s weight] twice because I wasn’t sure if it was 131 or 141. When I saw it was 141, I couldn’t believe that,” Valdez, the former WBO featherweight champion, said. “It’s very unprofessional. I’m very upset. I’m just very disappointed in him.”last_img read more

first_imgPittsburgh Pirates’ Marlon Byrd smiles as he rounds the bases after hitting a home run in the second inning of the NL wild-card playoff baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)  by Will GravesAP Sports WriterPITTSBURGH (AP) — Andrew McCutchen was in mid-answer when teammate A.J. Burnett stuck a bottle of champagne inside the jersey of the star Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder and turned it upside down.“Feels good,” McCutchen said with a laugh as the bottle emptied, further drenching his already soaked uniform. “I could get used to this.”So could the city he plays in.After an absence of two decades, playoff baseball is back in Pittsburgh. And it’s not going anywhere for a while.The Pirates are heading to St. Louis for the NL division series after drumming the Cincinnati Reds 6-2 in the NL wild-card game on Tuesday night, nine innings of dominance that also served as a coming out party for a franchise eager to escape a generation of misery.“There are mile markers along the road to get to the place you want to get to,” manager Clint Hurdle said. “There’s nobody in there that doesn’t want to win the World Championship for the Pirates organization.”Pittsburgh is one step closer after dispatching the Reds. The NL Central champion Cardinals await. A.J. Burnett will start for the Pirates against St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright in Game 1 on Thursday.Andrew McCutchen (22) walks to the field before the National League wild-card playoff baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)“They know us, we know them,” McCutchen said. “It’s going to be a battle. We want it to be a battle.”At least the Cardinals likely won’t face Liriano until Game 3 at the earliest, though Liriano’s teammates believe his performance set the tone for what they hope is an extended October stay.The veteran left-hander showed up at the park on Tuesday in a suit with his suitcase packed. The message was simple: the season wasn’t over yet.“He had the expectancy to win,” McCutchen said. “When he showed up with his suit on, that got me hyped up.”In front of a black-clad crowd savoring its first postseason game since 1992, Russell Martin hit two home runs, Marlon Byrd also connected and McCutchen reached base four times.“We’re for real,” McCutchen said. “We’re definitely for real.”You won’t hear the Reds arguing after Liriano continued his mid-career renaissance. The left-hander scattered four hits, struck out five and walked one to win his first playoff game and serve notice the Pirates have no intention of going quietly after spending two decades at the bottom of the standings looking up.Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto struggled in his third start since coming off the disabled list last month. Cueto gave up four runs in 3 1-3 innings and appeared rattled by a raucous ballpark that taunted him by chanting his name.“He couldn’t get the ball where he wanted,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Usually he can throw that ball through the eye of a needle. Tonight he was up.”The 36-year-old Byrd, acquired by the Pirates in late August from the New York Mets, celebrated the first postseason at-bat of his 12-year career — 1,250 games — by sending Cueto’s fastball into the seats to give the Pirates the lead in the second inning. The shot sent another jolt through an already electric crowd, which began singing “Cue-to, Cue-to” in unison when Martin stepped in.“This is 20 years of waiting. You’re seeing it all come out in one night,” Martin said. “Hopefully we can keep this atmosphere till late October.”The catcher followed with a drive into the bleachers in left field. The Reds never recovered, ending a 90-win season with a six-game losing streak.  Three of those losses came at home against the Pirates in the final series of the season that determined the site of the win-or-die game.“It’s unfortunately been a bit like déjà vu,” first baseman Joey Votto said. “Really disappointing.”Baker backed Cueto before the game, saying his ace “thrives on this environment.” Maybe, but the right-hander never looked comfortable at a place where he has been nearly unhittable.Cueto, who came in 8-2 at the ballpark by the Allegheny River, even lost his grip on the ball while standing on the mound as the crowd serenaded him.A moment later, he lost his grip on the game.Martin’s 405-foot shot to left-center gave Pittsburgh a 2-0 lead and all the momentum Liriano would require.Signed on the cheap in the offseason after a mediocre 2012 split between the Minnesota Twins and the Chicago White Sox, Liriano has been reborn in Pittsburgh. He went 16-8 with a 3.02 ERA during the regular season, his devastating slider nearly unhittable against left-handers.The Reds proved no match. Votto went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. Jay Bruce produced an RBI single in the fourth but Cincinnati never really threatened on a night playoff baseball officially returned to Pittsburgh.“It’s definitely a good feeling,” Martin said, “but we’ve still got work to do.”Shin-Soo Choo homered in the eighth, a drive to right field that was upheld by video review. It did little more than slightly delay a party 7,660 days in the making.Pittsburgh’s 94-win regular season reignited a relationship sullied by years of mismanagement and miserable play. When the gates opened two hours before the first pitch, fans — most of them dressed in black at the urging of McCutchen, an MVP candidate — sprinted to their seats in anticipation of the club’s first postseason game since Atlanta’s Sid Bream slid into home ahead of Barry Bonds’ throw in the bottom of the ninth in Game 7 of the 1992 National League championship series.The victory sent the Braves to the World Series and the Pirates into an abyss that took an entire generation to escape.The first step came with victory No. 82 on Sept. 9. The next came two weeks later when a win over the Chicago Cubs assured a wild-card spot. The most thrilling yet lifted the team with the 26th-highest payroll in the majors ($73.6 million) into a showdown with baseball royalty.NOTES: Martin is the first catcher to homer for three different teams in the postseason. He previously connected for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2008 and the New York Yankees in 2012 … Liriano is the first Pittsburgh left-hander to win a playoff game since John Candelaria in Game 3 of the 1979 World Series … The Reds have lost four straight playoff games and 11 of their last 13 … Pittsburgh is the first home team to win since the new wild-card format was introduced last season … The Pirates went 10-9 this year against St. Louis. … Byrd is the oldest player to homer in his first postseason at-bat, according to STATS.___Follow Will Graves at www.twitter.com/WillGravesAPlast_img read more
