Located in the Edgemoore community of Bethesda, the client for this project was a young, forward thinking entrepreneur with no desire for a nostalgic or revivalist style house. Rather, the client desired a house that was efficient and with a minimal footprint, leaving the majority of the lot unoccupied by building and hardscape.Save this picture!floor plansRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BuildPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles- CoverlamPorcelain StonewareApavisaFloor Tiles – RegenerationRenders / 3D AnimationAUGmentectureAugmented Reality Platform – AUGmentecture™After much deliberation, it was decided to remove an existing, inefficient structure and replace it with a new one. The new house occupies one third less area than the original structure and is sited to maximize green area on the property. Designed as a cube, the new house is approximately 2,200 square feet with no unused or underutilized spaces. The flat roof provides an additional 1,100 square feet of outdoor living space with views of treetops and the downtown Bethesda skyline.Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerFenestration in the ground faced block walls, composed of varying sized rectangular and square openings, is arranged to optimize views to the green spaces while minimizing views of adjacent houses in close proximity. A series of landscape walls orchestrate the relationship between the street, required parking court and house. Interior spaces are open and light filled with crisp detailing. Walnut flooring provides a rich base for white walls and millwork, designed in juxtaposition to the charcoal gray exterior walls.Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerThis house represents a deliberate departure in both the thought process and the realization of current building trends in the neighborhood. Instead of building a large house with pretentious ties to the rural past, this new house is smaller with a stronger relationship to the modern, urban area that Bethesda has become. The house is intended to be more site sensitive, environmentally conscious, and to provide comfortable, efficient living spaces.Save this picture!axonProject gallerySee allShow lessNew Bud Study Hall in Sichuan / ZHU Jingxiang, Nelson TamArticlesA Dramatic Detour / ACTArticles Share Photographs “COPY” United States Hampden Lane House / Robert Gurney Architectcenter_img Year:  CopyAbout this officeRobert Gurney ArchitectOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesBethesdaUnited StatesPublished on January 24, 2011Cite: “Hampden Lane House / Robert Gurney Architect” 24 Jan 2011.

Appeal court recommends a year’s imprisonment for director of El Watan

first_img News In a letter addressed to the Justice Minister, Ahmed Ouyahia, Reporters Sans Frontières (Reporters without Borders – RSF) protested against the sentence recommended by the prosecutor of the Court of Appeal in Algiers for the director of the private daily newspaper El Watan, Omar Belhouchet, for “attacking official bodies”. Reporters Sans Frontières reiterates that in a document dated January 18, 2000, Abid Hussain, UN Special Rapporteur on the Promotion and Protection of the Right to Freedom of Opinion and Expression asked “all governments to ensure that those committing press offences no longer risked prison unless they involved offences such as racist comments or incitement to violence (…) imprisonment to condemn the peaceful expression of opinion constitutes a serious violation of human rights”. “It is obvious that this case has been brought up again in the context of the recent campaign against journalists”, stated Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of the organization. Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Organisation Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa According to information obtained by RSF, on February 17, the prosecutor of the Appeal Court of Algiers demanded a year’s imprisonment for the director of the private daily newspaper El Watan, Omar Belhouchet, charged with “attacking official bodies”. The case has been taken under advisement and judgment will be rendered on March 4. Omar Belhouchet was sentenced at the court of first instance on November 5, 1997. He was charged by the public prosecutor for opinions expressed in September 1995 on the French television channels TF1 and Canal Plus. Questioning the assassination of Algerian journalists, the director of El Watan had not excluded the involvement of the “power elite”. When he was questioned on February 18, Belhouchet stated that his views were “not aimed at any official body or State institution”, but he did not exclude the “political and financial mafia’s involvement in some assassinations of journalists”. According to RSF, fifty-seven journalists were assassinated between 1993 and 1996 along with around forty other people employed in the media. Responsibility for most of these assassinations was claimed by various armed Islamic groups. Nevertheless, as far as RSF is concerned, the circumstances surrounding some of these assassinations remain unclear and raise numerous questions.

NHL expects Canadian teams to play home games this season

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJohnAlexandr/iStockBy LOUIS MILMAN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The NHL expects its Canadian teams to be able to play home games in their arenas this season, deputy commissioner Bill Daly said Thursday.The league’s season is scheduled to start on January 13, after the NHL and the NHL Players’ Assoication reached a deal on a 56-game season. The playoffs would run until July, when the Stanley Cup would be awarded.The format of the season will be unique, with four divisions — North, South, East and West — and all play confined within those divisions through the first two postseason rounds. That, in an effort to minimize travel and the potential for a COVID-19 outbreak to disrupt the season. All seven Canadian teams will play in the North Division, meaning they would not have to cross the U.S.-Canada border, which is currently closed to non-essential travel into late January.If needed, games could be played at neutral sites. Last season, the NHL completed its playoffs in a pair of bubble environments in Toronto and Edmonton. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.

Whicker: Can Brewers star Christian Yelich stay hot for one more month?

first_img How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire “I guess that shows how smart I am,” McDonnell said.Yelich has spent 2018 making his believers look smart and the Marlins look otherwise.He led the league in hitting (.326) and slugging (.598) and was second in home runs (36) and third in RBIs (108).After the All-Star Game, Yelich traded his pedestrian wood bat for a lightsaber. He cranked 25 home runs in 65 games and hit .367, slugged .770 and fashioned a 1.219 OPS. Thus he simplified the debate over who should be NL Most Valuable Player.Milwaukee might well designate Jan. 25 a civic holiday. That’s when General Manager David Stearns got Yelich from Miami for Lewis Brinson and three minor leaguers, and when he signed center fielder Lorenzo Cain, a former Brewer who had helped the Royals win a World Series. The Brewers tied a club record for wins (96) and open the National League Championship Series at home against the Dodgers on Friday night.Miami’s self-defoliation made even less sense when one considers Yelich’s neat contract. This year, he made $7 million for all that damage. His $49 million, seven-year deal expires in 2021, when he will make $14 million.But McDonnell felt a familiar ambivalence.In 2017, the NL MVP was Giancarlo Stanton, also signed by McDonnell out of Notre Dame High in Sherman Oaks, also traded by the Marlins.Miami made Yelich its first-round pick, 23rd overall, in 2010. Catcher J.T. Realmuto, former Dodgers reliever Grant Dayton and Oakland hitter Mark Canha all came in that draft. The Marlins’ personnel shop has always found players, almost as quickly as its management team trades them.“Obviously I’m happy for Giancarlo and Christian,” McDonnell said. “I just wish they were still playing for us.”Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Subscribe here.McDonnell used to sneak into Notre Dame’s ballpark like a safecracker until he realized he was the only scout there. At Westlake, the scouts always gathered. That was a complication.Tom Battista was a scout for the Red Sox. He now works for the Braves. He is McDonnell’s friend, and he was also seeing Alecia Yelich, Christian’s mom, whom he later married. McDonnell tried to blend into whatever crowd Westlake had. He didn’t want anyone, particularly Battista, to know the Marlins were so enamored with Yelich.“I had a lot of people tell me, later, that we picked their pocket,” McDonnell said.“Team Yelich has really done a great job,” said Zach Miller, Westlake’s coach at the time. “Alecia had a plan for Christian and it’s come to life.“I remember a bomb he hit off Tyler Skaggs (Santa Monica) at Westlake,” Miller said. “That one wound up on second base on the JV field. There was one at St. Paul that hit a car in the parking lot beyond center field. But he always wanted what was best for the team. That’s why he played all those positions.”“I’d seen the ability, but I hadn’t seen the fire, the leadership,” McDonnell said. “One day, they played El Dorado and Christian slid into home and the catcher got a little rough, and Christian came up ready to go. He wasn’t having any of it. That answered that question.”Maybe the football genes came out. Alecia’s grandfather was Fred Gehrke, a former L.A. Rams receiver for Bob Waterfield who became the general manager of the Denver Broncos when they won their first AFC championship.But Gehrke’s real legacy is the curling horn on the Rams’ helmet. He designed that, primarily because all the NFL helmets were blank at the time.Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies He was a left fielder when he was a freshman. He was a first baseman as a sophomore.Shortstop beckoned him as a junior. He finished his Westlake High career as a third baseman.“That was the only question anybody had,” said Tim McDonnell, the Miami Marlins’ scout. “Did he have a position?”So Christian Yelich won the National League Gold Glove award for left fielders in 2014, the youngest Marlins player ever to win one.

He was 6 for 6 the second time.“I saw the ball in the air (that became a triple) and thought, no way this has just happened again,” he said.Yelich hit .310 at the 2017 World Baseball Classic, the first one Team USA ever won, and was all-tournament.But now that Yelich spent 2018 daring himself to beat whatever he’d done yesterday, he officially says goodbye to shadows.Instead, he will be followed wherever he goes.

Red Sox Beat Mets Again, 3-1

first_imgNEW YORK — In one month, Joe Kelly has gone from total disappointment to the top of the rotation.Kelly won his sixth straight outing, recovering nicely from a rocky start to outpitch Jacob deGrom and lead the Boston Red Sox over the New York Mets 3-1 on Aug. 29.“It’s been a big point of emphasis that no matter what team we’re facing, I have to throw off-speed. Throwing all fastballs, obviously that hasn’t worked out,” Kelly said.Mookie Betts homered and scored twice as the last-place Red Sox won for the eighth time in 11 games. They have taken the first two this weekend at Citi Field after the NL East-leading Mets returned from an 8-1 road trip.“Our youngsters came in here and they’re growing up before our very eyes,” interim manager Torey Lovullo said.New York has dropped five in a row at home, its worst skid of the season.“We’ve been smashing the ball and today, the last two games, we have not. Today we looked a little tired,” Manager Terry Collins said. “We’ve been dragging a little bit. We’re going to be fine We just had a blip and we’ve got to pick it up.”After giving up a leadoff double and throwing 30 pitches in the first, Kelly (8-6) settled in and shut down the Mets.Sporting his large goggles and a black mustache, he gave up five hits over 7 1-3 innings — matching his career high. “He was outstanding,” teammate David Ortiz said. “He’s going to keep improving.”The right-hander, demoted to the minors in June, became the first Red Sox pitcher to go 6-0 in a month since Pedro Martinez in May 1999. The last to do it in August was Roger Clemens in 1990.“The way he did it wasn’t how you draw it up,” Lovullo said. “He lasted longer in this game than deGrom did. If you were to tell me that was the case after the first inning, I never would have believed it.”The only damage against Kelly came in the seventh on Juan Uribe’s RBI double. Pablo Sandoval made a diving play at third base to prevent another run.The rest of Kelly’s winning streak came with part-time catcher Ryan Hanigan behind the plate — and Kelly credited Hanigan for his stark turnaround. But this time it was rookie Blake Swihart catching after Hanigan was scratched from the lineup an hour before the game with tightness in his right calf.Jean Machi pitched a perfect ninth for his third save, one day after the Red Sox used all seven relievers in a 10-inning victory.Last season’s NL Rookie of the Year, deGrom (12-7) rebounded from a bout of food poisoning that perhaps contributed to the worst start of his two-year career Aug. 24 at Philadelphia. He struck out 10 in six innings, yielding two runs and four hits.“I felt good today, especially early on. I just struggled there a little bit in the sixth inning,” deGrom said. “It was just one of those days where they were battling me pretty good.”Pablo Sandoval snapped a scoreless tie in the sixth with an RBI double after Betts’ leadoff single.Later in the inning, Brock Holt knocked in a run with a ground-out when fill-in Mets first baseman Daniel Murphy tried for a double play instead of throwing to the plate. It appeared Murphy could have had Sandoval hung up between third and home.Betts homered on an 0-2 pitch from Hansel Robles in the seventh.(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
