Three houses situated in a row, replaces an old villa. The houses share a driveway, while parking and entrances are solved separately on the ground floor in each volume. The sloping terrain allow three levels, and provide the houses with a private garden with entrance from the first floor, completely separated from the driveway.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe ground floor services the rest of the house with storage and bathrooms. An open L-shaped first floor encircles the south facing garden ensuring light in the kitchen, dining and living area. On the second floor, a part of the volume is subtracted, and a terrasse is created.Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe subtraction improves the quality of light emitted to the garden, and the overall volume of the project is given a less continuous expression.

More than one million Internet users visited the young blogger’s page in February 2008. Elsewhere, there have been difficulties accessing and, both posting small advertisements. The public company ETECSA, Cuba’s sole access provider, has not provided any explanation.The problems getting access to website pages comes at the end of a month marked by several announced decisions to ease private acquisition of some consumer goods. And on 28 March the government said it was allowing Cubans to buy mobile phones and that the entire population would have access to a mobile phone service. Three days earlier, it legalised the sale of computers, televisions and tape-recorders and authorised the import of DVDs. Moreover, from today, Cubans are allowed to go into hotels, which were previously reserved for foreigners, allowing them access to the international Internet network.These steps are part of a policy of greater economic openness promoted by Raúl Castro, who officially took over as head of state from his brother, Fidel, on 24 February this year, after 20 months of interim power. He promised Cubans that he would put an end to “excessive bans and regulations”.The Internet in Cuba is highly controlled. There is a “national” network which gives users an email address and allows them to send emails abroad but not to surf the net. The “international” network, which costs three times as much, gives access to foreign news websites like the BBC, Le Monde, and Nuevo Herald (Miami-based Spanish-language daily). But if you type in “”, for example, you are redirected to the pages of the official Cuban newspaper Granma or the news agency Prensa Latina. Cuba figures on Reporters Without Borders’ list of “Internet Enemies” , which was released on 12 March 2008.

The platform ( has been inaccessible from public connection points in cybercafés and hotels since 2O March. The few private connections, used for professional reasons or in secret, take at least 20 minutes to download the home page. Editing and moderating posts has become impossible.“It is hard to believe that after ten days is simply having technical problems, even if there is a real problem getting an Internet connection from Cuba. This situation is in contradiction to recent steps taken by the authorities to ease access for Cubans to communications, especially the Internet,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Since you cannot have one without the other, the promise of greater openness given by Raúl Castro must include greater freedom of expression.” to go furtherlast_img read more

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 16, 2021 SMART Medical Systems receives Additional FDA Clearance for its G-EYE® Colonoscope, and Commences Clinical Work in the USA Facebook Twitter Twitter TAGS  center_img Previous articleThe Worldwide Virtualized Evolved Packet Core Industry is Expected to Reach $13.7 Billion by 2026 – ResearchAndMarkets.comNext articleQuantumScape Announces an Amendment to the Warrant Agreement to Advance the Exercise Date of the Public Warrants Digital AIM Web Support RA’ANANA, Israel, Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SMART Medical Systems Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of innovative endoscopy products, announced the initiation of commercial and clinical effort in the USA, following issuance of a second FDA clearance for its flagship G-EYE® Colonoscope, based on Fujifilm’s 510(k) cleared colonoscopes. The G-EYE® Colonoscope is a 510(k) cleared colonoscope, remanufactured by SMART to include a proprietary balloon at its distal bending section. SMART’s FDA cleared G-EYE® Colonoscopes include selected models of the leading endoscope brands – Fujifilm, Olympus, and Pentax. Withdrawal of the G-EYE® Colonoscope with the balloon moderately inflated during colonoscopy, assists in controlling the colonoscope’s field of view and positioning. In published clinical studies, G-EYE® colonoscopy demonstrated substantial increase over standard colonoscopy in the detection of pre-cancerous polyps which are the precursors of colon cancer (GIE 2019; 89: 545-553; and Endoscopy 2015; 47: 238–244). The first G-EYE® installation in the USA took place at NYU Langone Health in collaboration with Fujifilm. Following initial procedures and live case demonstration during the NYSGE Annual Course’s live endoscopy session, hosted by NYU Langone Health in December, the G-EYE® is being used in the NYU Langone endoscopy unit. “I am now using the G-EYE® integrated balloon to gain better stability of the scope during withdrawal and increase colon surface area exposure,” said Dr. Seth Gross, Clinical Chief in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at NYU Langone Health. “The effect of the G-EYE® balloon has been shown in clinical studies to be a valuable and innovative new tool in the prevention and early detection of colorectal cancer.” “We are excited to be the first medical center in the USA performing colonoscopy with the G-EYE® Colonoscope, and providing the newest-available technology to our patients,” said Dr. Mark Pochapin, Director of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at NYU Grossman School of Medicine / NYU Langone Health. Brian Cochrane, CCO of SMART’s US subsidiary, said, “Following the seamless and flawless integration of the G-EYE® into routine use at NYU Langone Health, we are confident it can become a natural and valuable tool for any GI practice, may it be academic, community hospital or an ambulatory endoscopy center.” “We are committed to our mission of making the G-EYE® a standard of care in colonoscopy,” added Gadi Terliuc, SMART’s CEO. “Solid clinical data and close interaction with the clinical community will pave the way for broad acceptance of the G-EYE® technology in daily routine.” Drs. Gross and Pochapin report no conflicts of interest with SMART Medical Systems. About SMART Medical Systems SMART Medical Systems is a pioneer in the development and manufacture of innovative medical devices in the field of gastro-intestinal (GI) endoscopy.

Officers from Vanderburgh, Pike, Tipton, Tippecanoe, Dubois, Gibson, Warrick and Spencer counties completed the Basic Jail Officer’s Course.In 2006, the Indiana Law Enforcement Training Board approved the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office as a regional training site for this forty (40) hour course, which is required of all newly hired jail officers during their first year. The new officers were instructed in subjects such as ethics, tactical communication, report writing, jail operations, physical security, searches, evidence gathering, booking and admissions, bloodborne pathogens, cultural awareness, suicide prevention, mental illness and legal issues.The regional officers will return to their respective agencies next week in order to continue additional facility-specific training. Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office confinement officers will spend the next two weeks attending additional classroom and practical training, which will include topics such as housing unit supervision, gang identification, defensive and physical tactics, record keeping and practical scenarios. Upon completion of the classroom training, the new confinement officers will be assigned to a Field Training Officer (FTO) for an additional ten (10) weeks before being permitted to work alone.At any given time the Sheriff’s Office houses over 675 inmates within the confines of a 146,500 square foot facility.

first_img“I have no idea what made me look to the side,” Bill said, but the 36 year old Marmora resident, who served on the Beach Patrol for several summers in the 1990s knew something wasn’t right.Without saying one word to Becky, he exited a side door and handed his phone and wallet to an unidentified bystander who was standing outside the auditorium along the pier’s railing.“The lady said she would watch my stuff and I just assessed the situation and took off.” Other officers were on the rock jetty attempting to reach the swimmers with flotation cans.Ocean City Police Captain Steve Ang identified “Class II Officer Abraham, as the member of the department who entered the water to play a major role in the rescue.Bill Jenkins vaulted over the side of the pier and rushed into the surf, swimming out to reach the youngster, grabbing the boy and steadying him. Meanwhile Officer Abraham had plucked two other bathers from the surf and headed toward Jenkins and the boy.“I told the officer I had (the boy secured) and to swim back in. I could see surf rescue was on the scene and would be out momentarily.”“There was no verbal communication between us,” Jenkins said.  “He relaxed and became a lot more calm as I held him and rubbed his belly.”Jenkins, who had broken his elbow in an accident less than a month before, managed to hold the boy’s head above the water line while the tide pounded him into the rocks. He suffered several cuts and scrapes to both legs and one of his arms as he shielded the youngster from the rocks.Charlie Bowman, also an OCBP Alum and an OCFD Deputy Chief, followed Bill Jenkins out of the concert and ran down to the beach to assist.He said that the first rescue team arrived less than two minutes following the 9-1-1 call. It was headed by Bowman’s brother Bill, also an OCFD Deputy Chief.  Charlie Bowman said Ryan Clark, a member of the Rescue B unit, was the first to paddle out and reach Jenkins and the would-be victim.  Tim Young, also of Rescue B, entered the surf and paddled a rescue board out to assist.Jenkins handed the boy over to Clark, who transported him to shore. Jenkins swam around the jetty to the south side of the rocks and finally exited the water.“The take away from this incident is to respect the ocean and to only swim on guarded beaches,” Jenkins said. The waves might be nonexistent and the ocean might seem clam he said, but that does not necessarily mean the rip currents and undertow won’t be present.According to the OCFD, the boy’s parents witnessed everything from the beach. Their son was evaluated on-scene by Ocean City Emergency Management Services and taken to Shore Medical Center as a precaution.  “He was shaken, but he was OK,” a Fire Department source said.With the operation carried out successfully, there was nothing more for Jenkins to do but return to the Music Pier and watch the rest of the Hooters concert, he said.“I just did what most people would have done in that situation (with the proper training), Jenkins said.“I knew rescue was on the way but that I could get out there sooner than they could. And I knew that the boy was struggling and the whole situation could have gotten ugly very quickly.  We could’ve had a very different conversation today.”One of the bystanders bought Bill a T-Shirt from a vendor so that he would have a dry garment to put on. However, Bill said his clothes had begun air drying at that point, so he just kept them on for the rest of the show.“I did get a nice Hooter’s T-shirt as a souvenir,” he said. The night started out care-free enough. Just good friends going out to enjoy the Hooters Concert at the Music Pier. By Tim Kelly“That’s why we were here tonight,” Becky Jenkins said from her vantage point on the 9th Street Beach.It’s often said that in life, things happen for a reason.On Tuesday night, the “reason” was to save the life of a young boy.The “thing” was Becky’s attendance with husband Bill at a concert at the Ocean City Music Pier. It continued with Bill’s noticing something wasn’t right on the beach, bolting from the show, vaulting the railing of the pier, dropping to the sand 10 feet below, sprinting into the surf and swimming out to rescue the boy.The would-be victim had been carried out to deep water by the rip current and kept in place by a strong undertow. The boy clung precariously to his boogie board as the current pulled him close to the rock jetty.  Jenkins reached him and held the boy’s head above water until the surf rescue unit arrived.Then, dripping wet, he returned to the concert, featuring Philadelphia 1980s music legends The Hooters.“Honestly I didn’t remember The Hooters,” said Bill. “When I heard some of their songs I remembered them.  They’re good.”The decision to take in the show with Becky and a group of friends including Charlie and Jennifer Bowman, was mostly last minute, Becky said.“Our date nights don’t always work out,” said Becky who tried five different potential babysitters without success until the Bowmans’ daughter Kelsea became available to watch Billy and Mackenzie. Bill made it back to Ocean City from his job as Director of Marine Services at Hudson Engineering in the Cherry Hill area in time and the friends rode to the show on bikes from the Bowman’s house.The concert started around 7:30 p.m. and was in full swing when Bill who was seated near the end of Row P opposite the left side of the stage, saw something out of the corner of his eye. It was a police officer sprinting on the beach toward the water’s edge.Official details of the incident were still sketchy on Wednesday night. Police reports were not immediately available. However, according to the Ocean City Fire Department’s dispatch report, a 9-1-1 call came in at 8:15 p.m. stating that swimmers were in distress on the 9th St. beach.last_img read more

first_imgWarburtons has announced a £25 million investment programme at its Bolton bakery. However the move threatens the jobs of around a quarter of its workforce at the site.The planned investment involves the redevelopment of the bakery, which will result in the closure of two of its existing bread plants. The firm has revealed that 121 jobs, out of the 234 employed on the two bread lines, are at risk. Around 480 staff are employed at the bakery. “As the two existing bread plants require upgrading, we will be creating a new single facility that will ensure we have a sustainable and efficient manufacturing facility to meet future customer requirements,” announced Warburtons.The firm will now enter into a 90-day consultation period, followed by a 30-day consultation period, said Ian Hodson, organising regional secretary, Bakers, Food & Allied Workers Union (BFAWU).He told British Baker that an initial meeting took place at Warburtons on Wednesday 27 January, and staff at the bakery were subsequently informed about the possible job losses following the meeting. He said the initial reaction to the announcement from shop stewards was that they were “pretty devastated by the news”. “It came as a shock. It was totally out of the blue, and had a real sting in the tail,” said Hodson.The new facility will be commissioned from September 2011, enabling Warburtons to “continue to grow and develop”.The firm has said it will be “working closely with its impacted employees and their representatives to explore all possible alternatives, during the consultation period”.The BFAWU will hold a meeting with members on 6 February, followed by a meeting with the company to go through the consultation process on 9 February, said Hodson.last_img read more
