Santa Teresa is a historical neighborhood that offers some great views of the city of Rio de Janeiro. The house is located in one of the highest points of Santa Teresa’s hill. From the north side of the house it is possible to see the old downtown; from the south side, a more panoramic view of Pão de Açucar and the Guanabara Bay. The site starts at 100 m above sea level at the cable car street and finishes at 125m at a breathtaking viewpoint of Pão de Açucar.Save this picture!The project takes into consideration the two pre-existent levels of the pronounced topography: 120 m and 125 m over sea level. Save this picture!© Nelson KonAt the lower level, there is a linear block that leads to the bedrooms and the office. Their main glass facade opens up to the enjoying garden on the east side. These two prismatic and linear volumes are opened on the east and west sides but are completely closed on the north and south sides, living the ground under them empty. The roof was designed to make a complementary ground on the upper plateau. Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe living room is located over the higher plateau providing a view of downtown on the north side and of the Guanabara Bay and Pão de Açucar on the south. This volume is closed on the east and west sides to avoid sun heat and to emphasize the magnificent views on the other sides. It leaves the level below completely open. Thus, there is a bare level between bedrooms and living room which is filled by the kitchen, where, according to the traditional Brazilian culture, most people will spend their spare time. Save this picture!It is a spread out and blown-up construction that should become part of Rio de Janeiro’s landscape.Project gallerySee allShow lessA New Landmark for Aldgate international competitionArticlesMuseum for African Art / Robert Stern ArchitectsArticles Sharelast_img read more

Music professors tour Asia

first_imgThree Notre Dame music professors will spend the next two weeks on a tour of East Asia, offering performances and information sessions in an effort to recruit prospective students and raise the profile of the department of music.From Oct. 7 to 19, professor of music Peter Smith, assistant professional specialist Tricia Park and associate professor of music John Blacklow will visit high schools and various institutions in Seoul, South Korea, and in Shanghai and Beijing, China, according to a University press release.Smith, who also chairs the department of music and specializes in music theory, said this tour not only aims to recruit musically talented students and bring attention to Notre Dame’s “outstanding” department of music but also to strengthen connections with the University’s alumni network in Asia through a variety of lectures, masterclasses and recitals.The team will focus its recruitment on 10 high schools in the three major Asian cities, Smith said.“We will offer musical performances, masterclasses and information sessions about the music department and Notre Dame in general,” Smith said. “A masterclass is a learning experience in which one student performs for the faculty member … the teacher then offers instruction to the student but frames the advice in such a way that it will be … beneficial to the larger group as well.”In addition to visiting schools, the professors will perform and teach at “significant” cultural and academic institutions, Smith said. Park, a violinist, and Blacklow, a pianist, will feature prominently in the performance events.“The three of us will offer … [a] lecture and recital at the Capital Library in Beijing, in an event jointly hosted by the Library and the U.S. Embassy, designed to foster cultural exchange,” he said. “We will also visit Beijing University — the Harvard of China — where I will teach a seminar on musical romanticism and my colleagues Tricia Park and John Blacklow will … perform a full-length formal recital.”In Shanghai and Beijing, the professors will also participate in “Discover ND” informational sessions, Smith said.“I will offer an introduction, followed by a performance by professors Park and Blacklow, and then we will break into smaller groups to answer questions for prospective students and their families,” he said.Smith said these information sessions reach a wider range of students and family members interested in Notre Dame, not just the “musically inclined.”“But the musical performance is a special attraction, given the interest and value placed on Western classical music in Asia,” he said.In Asia, both American education and musical instruction are held in high esteem, making the continent an ideal place to recruit international students, Smith said.“There is a strong interest … in sending their best and brightest students to study in America,” Smith said. “In addition to the high academic standards … the Asian educational system places great emphasis on the study of music and Western classical music in particular.”Blacklow said there is a more mainstream appreciation of classical music in the continent, and cites his experiences as a performer.“… On some of my own previous concert tours to Korea and Japan, it would not be uncommon to have full audiences in large concert halls, which is much more rare over here,” he said. “I think this results in a population who develop a serious knowledge and love for classical music, which translates into talented performers who are eager to pursue music seriously, whether as a performer or a scholar.”Notre Dame’s department of music has much to offer prospective students, Smith said.“[We have] a first-rate faculty, first of all, with leading experts in both music scholarship and music performance,” he said.Blacklow said Notre Dame’s well-rounded approach is vital to a performer’s musical development and also allows the student to pursue other fields of interest.“Advanced knowledge of theory and history will make a performer play with the needed conviction and understanding — and serious study of an instrument provides a foundation for knowing music ‘from the inside out,’ as it were,” he said. “It is also beneficial that so many students are able to double-major here. Our most serious students go on to graduate school themselves, but we have also taught many wonderful musicians who choose to go on to other fields.”Smith said compared with other schools, Notre Dame’s program is successful in offering instruction in both music theory and practice.“Many liberal arts programs stress music scholarship more heavily, while many schools of music place a greater priority on performance — the music department at Notre Dame strikes a balance.”Tags: Asia, Beijing, China, Department of Music, Music, Seoul, Shanghai, South Korealast_img read more

Bison win 1st game, but Badgers bite back

first_imgView Gallery (2 Photos)It took seven innings for the bats of the Wisconsin softball team to finally heat up, but the Badgers came out swinging in the second game of a doubleheader Tuesday against North Dakota State to come away with a split of the series.NDSU (24-19) got on the board early in the second game of the twin billing. The game’s first batter, Grete Peterson, reached on a base hit to pitcher Letty Olivarez, who then overthrew first baseman Alexis Garcia. Peterson advanced to second on the error. Shortstop Jennifer Morse then moved Peterson to third on a groundout to Olivarez.With Kelly Cantrell up to bat, UW catcher Joey Daniels threw to third after Peterson crept off the base. Daniels’ throw went past third baseman Athena Vasquez and into left field, allowing Peterson to score on the Badgers’ second error of the inning.Wisconsin would answer in the second as they took a 2-1 lead on a two-run round-tripper off the bat of designated hitter Ricci Robben. The homer for Robben, who went was hitless in the first game of the night, was her fifth of the season, which puts her at second on the team behind Katie Hnatyk’s ten. Robben also notched a double in the contest.”It was big,” Robben said of her home run. “It made me step up more to do better than I did in the first game and help my team out. … I was just seeing the ball better in the second game.”The Badgers (20-12) would score four times in the third, with the first run coming off the bat of Hnatyk. After Daniels and centerfielder Sam Polito both singled, Hnatyk drove the pitch from NDSU’s Bekki Rasmussen to left field, scoring Daniels and giving UW a 3-1 lead.Vasquez, the next batter for Wisconsin, followed Hnatyk by sending another pitch into left to score Polito.”I just wanted to see the ball and hit the ball,” Vasquez said. “We needed a hit there, so I just stepped up and got a base hit.”Vasquez finished the day with three hits and two RBIs between the two games.A squeeze bunt by Garcia scored Hnatyk from third and moved Vasquez to second. That would end the day for Rasmussen, who was unable to record an out and gave up three runs in the inning.The Badgers would then go on to score on an error by NDSU’s Morse, as Vasquez came around to score, putting UW up 6-1.North Dakota State refused to give up, however. They would add three in the sixth inning after three consecutive doubles by Morse, Cantrell, and Melissa Chmielewski. Jandie Weber would also drive in a run on a sacrifice fly, bringing the score to 6-4 in favor of the Badgers.It was too little too late for the Bison, however, as Leah Vanevenhoven came in for UW’s Letty Olivarez in the seventh. She struck out the side to pick up her first save of the year, while Olivarez earned her seventh victory.”Leah Vanevenhoven came in today twice, so we’re really happy with that,” UW head coach Chandelle Schulte said. “I think she was on a mission. She came in and probably did the best job she’s done so far.”In the earlier game of the doubleheader, North Dakota State got a strong performance from pitcher Allison Bakke, who notched her 15th victory of the season.After three scoreless innings, Bison first baseman Chmielewski broke open the game and got NDSU on the board with a leadoff home run to left field off Wisconsin’s Eden Brock, who was charged with the loss. The blast curved just around the foul pole for Chmielewski’s third homer of the season.Wisconsin threatened early in the bottom of the first with a two-out rally by getting two runners on base, but UW was unable to convert.The Badgers were completely shut down in the second through five innings, as Bakke mowed them down four consecutive times.The fifth inning would provide the eventual game-winning run for the Bison, as they scored two more. Second baseman Laurel Pipkin walked to open the inning, and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Bakke. Peterson then grounded out to shortstop Lynn Anderson, advancing Pipkin to third. Morse drove in Pipkin with a soft roller back to Brock, who did not have time to make a play.A base hit by Cantrell and a Chmielewski walk loaded the bases, bringing up left fielder Lynnae Foshag, whose base hit past Anderson scored the Bison’s third and final run of the game.Wisconsin finally managed a run in the sixth, after a single to right by Vasquez scored Polito, who had reached based on a base hit earlier in the inning. UW continued to threaten in the inning, as Hnatyk was intentionally walked, but Robben struck out on a 2-2 count.”The first game, we were kind of timid,” Hnatyk said. “It obviously showed. We sat back and let the game play us. The second game, we came out and did a heck of a lot more.”last_img read more

Global acclaim for SA film

first_imgThe Iron Ladies of Liberia takes a behind the scenes look at Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and her Cabinet’s challenging first year in power. (Image: Why democracy?) Tamara O’ReillyA film, which has South African-born Don Edkins as its executive producer, won a host of international awards in June 2008 for its ability to generate debate on the concept of democracy.Iron Ladies of Liberia is one of a series of 10 documentaries commissioned by Cape Town-based non-profit production company Steps International under their Why Democracy? project, which saw a select group of filmmakers from around the world explore the meaning of democracy and how it is viewed in different communities and scenarios.The production takes a behind-the-scenes look at Liberia’s President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who was sworn into power in 2006. Sirleaf is the country’s first freely elected head of state and the first female president in Africa. She faces the onerous task of uniting a country that – prior to her election – was racked by nearly two decades of civil war, addressing its debt and reviving its economy. Since coming to power Sirleaf has appointed several women in her Cabinet and this documentary follows her and her administrative team during their first year in office as they tried to prevent further conflict.On 10 June 2008 the film was named the best political documentary and best documentary at the Banff World Television Awards in Canada, which honours the best television programmes from around the world. At the One World Media Awards in London held two days later, on 12 June, Iron Ladies of Liberia was presented with the prestigious Millennium Development Goals Award (MDG). This honour is for broadcast, print or new media coverage addressing the progress or challenges in meeting the 2015 MDG set out by the United Nations, which covers issues such as health, education and poverty.At the end of June 2008 the Why Democracy? project was awarded the Golden Link European Broadcasting Union (EBU) Documentary Co-production Award in La Rochelle, France by the European Broadcasting Union. The EBU is the largest association of national broadcasters in the world.No lofty idealsThe Why Democracy? project was launched in Amsterdam in 2004 at the International Documentary Festival. The organisers called for proposals from documentary and filmmakers around the world and more than 700 entries were received.In October 2007 the 10 selected hour-long documentaries were televised by 42 broadcasters in 180 countries to more than 300-million people. Along with screening the documentary, each broadcaster agreed to air other programmes, debates and discussions to tie in with democracy theme.The Why Democracy? project has produced some exceptional, challenging and unconventional work. According to the Why Democracy website, “The films are unconventional documentaries in two senses: firstly democracy, an idea, is their primary focus above any specific country or event. Secondly, they are not overtly prescriptive. These are not films by experts, about experts, telling us what ‘the situation is’ in Iraq, or Chile, or South Africa or Iran. These films hope to illuminate for anyone, in any country, a gnarly idea called democracy. Democracy as it exists today, not as we wish it to be.”Further recognitionOther documentaries in the series have also won awards, most notably Taxi to the Dark Side, which won Best Documentary Feature Award at the 2008 Academy Awards and the Best Documentary Film Award at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.Edkins also produced the Southern African series on truth and reconciliation, Landscape of Memory, and the multi-award-winning documentary project, Steps for the Future, a collection of 38 films about Southern Africa in the time of HIV and Aids.Links:Bannf World Television Awards Why Democracy?

O.J. Simpson asks parole board to set him free

first_imgLacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ LATEST STORIES Simpson, 70, said he never pointed a gun at anyone nor made any threats during the crime that put him in prison, and he forcefully insisted that nearly all the memorabilia he saw in two dealers’ hotel room belonged to him.“In no way, shape or form did I wish them any harm,” he added, saying he later made amends with those in the room.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsHe said he has spent his time in prison mentoring fellow inmates, often keeping others out of trouble, and believes he has become a better person during his time behind bars.

He has also said that if Simpson behaved in prison, he should get parole.

The board was expected to make its decision later in the day.An electrifying running back dubbed “The Juice,” Simpson won the Heisman Trophy as the nation’s best college football player in 1968 and went on to become one of the NFL’s all-time greats.The handsome and charismatic athlete was also a “Monday Night Football” commentator, sprinted through airports in Hertz rental-car commercials and built a Hollywood career with roles in the “Naked Gun” comedies and other movies.All of that came crashing down with his arrest in the 1994 slayings and his trial, a gavel-to-gavel live-TV sensation that transfixed viewers with its testimony about the bloody glove that didn’t fit and stirred furious debate over racist police, celebrity justice and cameras in the courtroom.Last year, the case proved to be compelling TV all over again with the ESPN documentary “O.J.: Made in America” and the award-winning FX miniseries “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”In 1997, Simpson was found liable in civil court for the two killings and ordered to pay $33.5 million to survivors, including his children and the Goldman family.

By then, he will have served the minimum of his nine-to-33-year armed-robbery sentence.The Hall of Fame athlete’s chances of winning release were considered good, given similar cases and Simpson’s model behavior behind bars.His defenders have argued, too, that his sentence was out of proportion to the crime and that he was being punished for the two murders he was acquitted of during his 1995 “Trial of the Century” in Los Angeles, the stabbings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.Reflecting America’s enduring fascination with Simpson, several major TV networks and cable channels — including ABC, NBC, CNN, Fox, MSNBC and ESPN — carried the proceedings live, just as some of them did two decades ago during the Ford Bronco chase that ended in Simpson’s arrest, and again when the jury in the murder case came back with its verdict.Simpson said most of the objects taken in the hotel heist were personal property, including letters from celebrities, family photos, certificates of accomplishment and more. Items that were not his, including autographed baseballs, were taken by others in the rush to get out of the room, he said.ADVERTISEMENT Former NFL football star O.J.
