We decided to test the archetypical features of the suburban house. This exercise was never as explicit as the conciliation required by the formalities of the case: a suburban dwelling in a neighborhood of detached houses. As the rest of the residences, this was a big house in a plot too small for such a size; a house that had to look like one (for the sake of the neighbors mental peace); a house made of “material” (a local expression referring to the unquestioned solidity of concrete constructions) that would never age (for the peace of mind of the owners).Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaSave this picture!axo 03In an almost automatic move we proposed a heavy and clumsy rectangular prism that echoed the cornered site tucked away at the end of the street; we projected an extension of the plot in two elevated dry patios; we planned a piece that unified the silhouette of four pitched roofs, not too different from the naïve outlines of a child’s drawing; we built a secondary pigmented concrete wall that was repaired several times during its crafted fabrication and that was build in layers so that each new one spilled itself over the previous one.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio Palma“It’s the weeping house” a carpenter said while he varnished the boards of the furniture “perhaps the only way to avoid aging is to be born old”. Of the four infantile silhouettes only the one closest to the street does not have a base. It is a transversal block suspended over the little remaining air offered by the neighborhood’s square.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaSave this picture!axo 01When Colomina talks about Graham’s inbuilt project she teaches us that “since each house in the urbanization faces an almost identical one across the street, its window becomes another identification screen, a kind of mirror”. In this case, the mirror occupies a place unreachable to the direct eye. It is a disproportioned showcase that allows intruders to enter only when they look from a distance.Save this picture!© Cristobal Palma / Estudio PalmaSave this picture!floor plansSave this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessCCCWall / Kengo KumaArticlesBALI 2010: Marine Research Center in IndonesiaArticles Share Projects CopyAbout this officePezo von EllrichshausenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesConcepcionChilePublished on May 10, 2010Cite: “Pael House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen” 10 May 2010.

At present, looking at the miseries of the #migrantworkers, we are of the view that some Interim Directions need to be issued”- Supreme Court— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) May 28, 2020The matter has been adjourned till June 5. During the hearing, the bench posed several questions to the Central Government on the issues concerning migrant workers, who have been stranded during the lockdown. ‘Who Pays Migrants’ Rail Fare?How Many Days Needed To Shift Them?Who Gives Them Food?’, SC Asks CentreIt was on May 26 that the Supreme Court took suo moto cognizance of the migrants crisis, which had been on going since the announcement of country-wide lockdown on March 24. The Court said that there were “inadequacies and certain lapses” in the measures taken by the governments for migrants welfare.”We take suo motu cognisance of problems and miseries of migrant labourers who had been stranded in different parts of the country. The newspaper reports and the media reports have been continuously showing the unfortunate and miserable conditions of the migrant labourers walking on-foot and cycles from long distances”, the bench said.  Shortly before that, a group of 20 leading advocates had submitted a representation before the CJI, complaining that the Court’s passivity in the issue resulted in the executive going unchecked amidst a grave humanitarian crisis. They said that the Court was showing “excessive deference” to the executive, by showing unwillingness to question the Central Government’s “patently false” claims.Several former judges, and senior advocates, including Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave, President of the Supreme Court Bar Association, have been vocal in criticizing the top court for its inaction on the migrants issue.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

A cold limit to adaptation in the sea

first_imgTemperature affects biological functions by altering reaction rates. Physiological rates usually double to treble for every 10°C rise, and 1–4 fold encompasses normal biological functions. However, in polar marine species inhabiting temperatures around 0°C many processes are slowed beyond the Arrhenius relationships for warmer water species. Growth, embryonic development, Specific dynamic action (SDA) duration, and time to acclimate to altered temperature, are all 5–12 fold slower in species living near 0°C than at 10°C. This cold marine physiological transition to slower states is absent, however, in oxygen consumption and SDA factorial scope; processes where capacity is related to aerobic scope. My opinion is that processes involving significant protein modification are impacted, and protein synthesis or folding problems cause the slowing of rates beyond expected temperature effects.last_img read more

US bankruptcy court approves Alta Mesa Resources sale to BCE-Mach III

first_img Alta Mesa Resources is an oil and gas producer in the Anadarko Basin. (Credit: skeeze from Pixabay) The US District Court for the Southern District of Texas has given its approval for the sale of Texas-based oil and gas company Alta Mesa Resources and its subsidiaries to BCE-Mach III for $220m.Originally, in January 2020, BCE-Mach III signed a deal to acquire all the upstream assets of Alta Mesa Resources and other subsidiaries in addition to the company’s midstream subsidiary Kingfisher Midstream for a total sum of $320m.However, due to multiple factors, including the coronavirus outbreak and the reduced demand for oil made the company to settle to a lesser consideration.BCE-Mach III is the third partnership between Bayou City Energy Management, an upstream-focused energy private equity firm, and Mach Resources, an Oklahoma-based oil and natural gas producer.Alta Mesa Resources is a pure-play stack operator with a focus on the eastern portion of the Anadarko Basin. Previously known as Silver Run Acquisition II, the company was formed in 2018 by combining the core upstream assets of Alta Mesa with the gas processing assets of Kingfisher Midstream.In September 2019, the company filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code citing the challenging commodity price environment, while claiming that the capital market is highly constrained for energy companies.What BCE-Mach III gains from the acquisition of Alta Mesa ResourcesThrough the acquisition of Alta Mesa Resources, BCE-Mach III gains nearly 30 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (Mboe/d) of production, of which 67% is liquids. The joint venture also adds around 72 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe) of proved reserves, over 900 operated wells, and 130,000 net acres to its upstream portfolio.Besides, the addition of Kingfisher Midstream gives BCE-Mach III a gas processing capacity of 350 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d), 729km of gas gathering pipeline, 173.8km of oil gathering pipeline, and 50 million barrels of oil storage capacity among others.At the time of signing the deal, Mach Resources CEO Tom Ward said: “This was a unique opportunity to acquire a sizeable cash-flowing asset with the supporting midstream infrastructure, through a bankruptcy process, in an area of our team’s expertise and still have an extensive inventory for future development.” Alta Mesa Resources, which is a pure-play stack operator with a focus on the eastern portion of the Anadarko Basin, filed for bankruptcy protection in September 2019 last_img read more
