The Toorak Residence by Architecton is a contemporary residential architecture project located in Melbourne’s affluent inner city suburb of Toorak.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThis four bedroom private residence rigorously pursues a balance of elegance and relaxation. The formal refinement and spatial fluidity propel the living spaces to the height of luxury and repose. An urban oasis in the heart of Melbourne’s most prestigious address.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe client’s brief was for a minimal yet welcoming home with fun, quirky elements. The architectural design needed to ensure to creation of a beautifully striking residential address. Architecton approached this project with a strong belief that the design needed to generate a dwelling with drama and excitement through the use of scale, volume, elegant materials and clever design solutions.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe Toorak Residence maximizes the potential of the site whilst remaining sensitive to the existing streetscape and the socio-economic character of the affluent Melbourne suburb.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe outdoor area was designed to accommodate a large pool that fits beautifully into the marble tiling. The use of outdoor greenery and an all white colour palate gives the outdoor space the impression of an exotic oasis located in inner-city Melbourne.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThis architectural gem is defined by a free-flowing living space. Shades of concrete, wood and metal clash magnificently within this room providing it with an overall sense of grandeur.Save this picture!© Jack LovelWhile Architecton have created a clear differentiation of living space, with several distinct zones, the open plan nature of the design allows these spaces to link and the visual generosity of the entire space is revealed. The controlled monochromatic palette for the interior decoration throughout ensures that there are no jarring visuals and that the eye can move seamlessly across the space.The kitchen / entertaining area is dominated by a stunning fire place that becomes the centerpiece of the impressive room. A large dining table and lounge area allows the clients to comfortably cater for large groups of friends.Save this picture!© Jack LovelGlowing Structures were commissioned to design the bespoke lighting installation that needed to be fully integrated into the interior design to ensure a seamless yet striking installation.Natural timbers and stone culminate in a series of concrete and glass volumes that create free-flowing spaces providing easily interchangeable areas for family living as well as formal celebrations.Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe architecture juxtaposes ideas of solidity and intimacy, with lightness and extroversion. Ultimately the Toorak Residence is an exploration into the use of concrete and how to design within a large residential space. The home uses and enormous degree of architectural transparency the mediate the unpredictable Australian climate.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessITAFE Coffee & Drinking Store / daylab studioSelected ProjectsMicrosoft Envisioning Center / Studio O+ASelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

The “Voice of the Voiceless” for Tibet

first_imgNews In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival IndiaAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF_en Tibetan Media: How do you get information from inside Tibet? Getting information from inside Tibet is very difficult right now. We obtain it indirectly from calls from our connections in different parts of the world. There are many people, especially Tibetan monks in southern India, who come from Tibet and we get news through them as well. All the information we receive is checked and double-checked. Because being the first to send information is not important for us. Sending right information, true information, that is very, very important. So we check and cross-check with different sources throughout the world and all of the Tibetan research centres, such as the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy. IndiaAsia – Pacific News RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 Follow the news on India Receive email alerts India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media News April 27, 2021 Find out more News to go further January 14, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 The “Voice of the Voiceless” for Tibet Help by sharing this information June 10, 2021 Find out more No independent news or information can be reported by the print media, broadcast media or new media in Chinese-controlled Tibet. But outside the country, especially in India, where hundreds of thousands of Tibetans have found refuge, independent news media produce and disseminate alternative news. Despite jamming by China, radio Voice of Tibet functions as a voice for the Tibetans who cannot speak for themselves. Reporters Without Borders met the station’s editor-in-chief, Karma Yeshi, in Dharamsala, in northern India.Can you tell us a little bit about the history of Voice of Tibet?It was founded in Norway by Norwegian Human Rights House, the Norwegian Tibet Committee, and Worldview Rights. Initially, we had only two 15-minute programmes, five days a week and our office was in Oslo. In 1997, we moved our office from Oslo to Dharamsala. Then, in 1999, to reach out to the Chinese people, we started a 15-minute programme in Chinese. Now, we have a 45-minute programme – 30 minutes in Tibetan and 15 minutes in Mandarin Chinese – which we broadcast up to five times a day during the week. We also have a website, so that people in Tibet and throughout the world can listen to the station online.Where do most of your listeners live?Our main target is Tibet, and China. So we beam our programme from different transmitters, targeting Tibet and China. Then we have another transmitter targeting our audience in India, Nepal, and Bhutan. Our signal is fairly good in parts of Tibet and northern India but unfortunately it is very poor in Lhasa and Shigatse because the Chinese jamming is very powerful. So that is our biggest challenge. Our programme is doing well in southern India, where the largest Tibetan community lives, and it can be heard here in Dharamsala too. And then, people in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and some parts of China also log on to our website and listen to our Chinese programme on the online service. So we have an international audience of Tibetans and Chinese living outside China.Can you tell us about Chinese jamming of your short-wave signal in Tibet?When we broadcast our news on our own frequency, which is specifically booked for Voice of Tibet according to international telecommunication law, China is not supposed to use the same frequency as it is one of the law’s signatories. But China, you know, can play any game. So they are violating the international convention they signed. They cannot stop us from broadcasting from exile, just as we cannot stop their jamming. We have to use our tactics to overcome their jamming. So we often change our frequency but that means we lose our audience.The Chinese newspaper Global Times accuses Voice of Tibet of supporting Tibetan independence. How do you respond?Radio Voice of Tibet is a platform for all the Tibetan people and Tibet-loving people. We do stories on all kinds of subjects whether exile government news, Dalai Lama news or Tibetan NGOs. We do stories about India-China relations and Tibet, China-US relations and Tibet. Voice of Tibet does not have any political leaning. Our aim is to provide a platform for everybody. These Chinese accusations are baseless. We don’t have any political position as such, whether we are Middle Way supporters or independence supporters.What feedback do you get from your listeners in Tibet?Getting feedback from inside Tibet is becoming more and more difficult. But we meet people who have recently arrived from Tibet and we ask them, “Do you listen to radio Voice of Tibet?” Sometimes they say yes and sometimes no. There are people who say, “Please broadcast the Dalai Lama’s teachings more often.” Many Tibetans have learned to listen to international radio stations, in part because it is one of the few ways of listening to the Dalai Lama.

Fund will help make Limerick people IT smart

first_imgNewsLocal NewsFund will help make Limerick people IT smartBy admin – October 26, 2011 699 Email FUNDING has been made available to provide free IT training for 800 Limerick people. The €40,000 slice of a national €1.88 million fund has been awarded to help people from all walks of life to get up to speed with emailing, surfing the net, skyping and other tecno skills. Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources – Pat. Rabbitte T.D, announced offers of training grants for 20 training projects run by community and voluntary groups and not for profit organisations under the BenefIT 3 scheme.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick Community Connect were one of the groups who received funding.This means that 800 will gain from free IT training between now and June 2012. In particular older people will benefit, as will the unemployed, as well as other disadvantaged groups.“We ran a project to train people in IT in Limerick last year and 900 were trained. “Everyone filled out a questionnaire at the the end of it and the feedback was just phenomenal – we could have trained another thousand people if the funding was there,” Elaine Doyle of Community Connect, told the Limerick Post.This project will run in centres, libraries and public spaces in Limerick city. It will use a Train the Trainer approach where students from Limerick Institute of Technology and University of Limerick and interested residents, will receive training to deliver these courses.Each participant will receive six hours of training, four hours will focus on the Internet, Email and Online Transactions. Two further hours will be available on Digital Photography/Video or Skype and or e-Government services online or a topic the trainees may choose.A training schedule will be available from November and the group will be taking names of interested participants.

Towards an energy budget for krill: The physiology and biochemistry of Euphausia superba Dana

first_imgPublished data on the oxygen consumption, nitrogen excretion, feeding, growth and moulting physiology of the Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, are reviewed with particular reference to experimental methodology and the value of the data for the construction of an energy budget. It is concluded that the relationship between basal oxygen consumption (QO2, in ml h-1) and wet weight (W, in grams) can be described by the relationship QO2=0.0813 W0.88, that filtration rates in krill are high (but possibly reduced in dense swarms), and growth of adult krill in summer is about 2 mm per week. Using these data a preliminary energy budget has been constructed for adult krill at South Georgia in summer. This budget highlights the lack of data on the energetic costs of swimming and feeding in krill, and also the environmental and behavioural data necessary for the extrapolation of an individual energy budget to a swarm or whole population. This preliminary budget suggests a daily energy intake for male krill in summer of about 5% body weight per day. A minimal estimate of the cost of reproduction in female krill from the energy content of the ovary suggests that in a maturing female energy intake can be in excess of 6% body weight per day.last_img read more
