The house is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood in the south of the city of São Paulo, very close to a beautiful square widely used by local residents. Embedded into an urban lot, the residence is composed by a single volume that has been placed in the frontal part of the terrain leaving room for a large rear garden. Apart from the pedestrian entrance, by the street there’s only a parking spot for two cars and, behind a side green wall, the small uncovered service area.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe owners wanted an integrated living area with the rear garden and to be able to enjoy them privately. Therefore, the project left the laundry room and the employees bathroom in the front side of the volume and opened both to the side corridor. Besides that, as an extension of the service area, a storage room was built in the basement.This layout made it possible to completely open the kitchen and living rooms and combine them with the garden through the terrace and large glass sliding doors. Over the terrace there’s a pergola with climbing plants, creating a transition between the internal and external spaces. The upper floor houses four suites arranged around a family room. The rooms facing the garden or the street have large floor-to-ceiling windows that open to the outside area and, in the case of the main suite, to a small balcony.Save this picture!© Nelson KonSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Nelson KonThe construction system consists of in situ concrete structure, clay hollow bricks and concrete slabs. To improve the buildings energetic performance the roof slab was covered with thermoacoustic tiles.Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe house’s materialization is frugal and unpretentious. The project thematised the contrast between a heavy, almost crude, facade and simple and light interiors. Externally there’s the rusticity of brownish bricks opposing to the materials used internally, such as: clean porcelain tiles in the wet areas, smooth wooden floors in the interior areas and white walls and ceilings. Dark doors and windows outline the spaces. The tailor-made PVC frames were developed with the factory and painted accordingly to the project.Save this picture!© Nelson KonIt was the owner’s choice to use simple, but always high-quality materials and finishes.

FSA is also leveraging commercial document storage and e-signature solutions to enable producers to work with local service center staff to complete their applications from home.“We are doing everything we can to serve our customers and make sure agricultural producers impacted by the pandemic can quickly and securely apply for this relief program,” said FSA Administrator Richard Fordyce. “In addition to working with FSA staff through the phone, email and scheduled in-person appointments, we can now also take applications through the farmers.gov portal, which saves producers and our staff time.”Through the portal, producers with secure USDA login credentials—known as eAuthentication—can certify eligible commodities online, digitally sign applications and submit directly to the local USDA Service Center. Producers who do not have an eAuthentication account can learn more and begin the enrollment process at farmers.gov/sign-in. Currently, the digital application is only available to sole proprietors or single-member business entities.USDA Service Centers can also work with producers to complete and securely transmit digitally signed applications through two commercially available tools: Box and OneSpan. Producers who are interested in digitally signing their applications should notify their local service centers when calling to discuss the CFAP application process. You can learn more about these solutions at farmers.gov/mydocs.USDA has several other options for producers to complete and submit their CFAP applications. These include:Downloading the AD-3114 application form from gov/cfap and manually completing the form to submit to the local USDA Service Center by mail, electronically or by hand delivery to an office drop box.

When I felt homesick in college, my mom encouraged me host a dinner party in my dorm room. I was on the phone with my mom the entire time as she talked me through each step of this chicken pasta recipe,” Chan said in her essay.“It turned out beautifully and the dinner parties became an ongoing ritual throughout college. 10 years later, my friends threw me a surprise engagement party and served this delicious Creamette pasta dish as a nod to our first gathering,” she added.Chan said she just had her appendix removed in a hospital when she found out about the contest from a magazine.“I came across this contest and I thought, ‘I have the perfect pasta recipe.’ Itâ€™s so delicious. I better try it,” Chan said.Chan noted that a part of her prize will be donated to her two favorite youth organizations, while the remaining money will be used for her upcoming wedding with her fiancÃ©.Nine other recipes were awarded as first place winners with a prize of $500 each: Twice Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Pan Spaghetti, Mom’s Homestyle Italian Ring Soup, Dilled Ranch Vegetable Pasta Salad, Penne Palooza, Fiesta Mac N’ Cheese Soup, Spicy Ring of Fire Shrimp Pasta, Hungarian Goulash and Creamy Tuna Porcini Noodle Caserole.Creamette was established in 1896 with James T. Williams’ loan of $100. It was sold to Borden in 1979, and since then became a part of the New World Pasta family of brands, the leading dry pasta manufacturer in the United States, with brands including Ronzoni Healthy Harvest, Ronzoni Smart Taste and Ronzoni Garden Delight.For more information on Chan’s winning recipe, visit http://creamette.newworldpasta.com/ Top of the News Neighborhood News Pasadena Woman Wins $10,000 in Creamette’s Essay and Recipe Contest From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, August 5, 2013 | 12:49 pm Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Community News Business News Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS More Cool Stuff Subscribe Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena

Top StoriesPlea In SC Seeks Authorisation For Use Of Remdesivir, Favipiravir and Tocilizumab For Govt. Purposes And/Or Grant Compulsory Licenses For Their Patents Radhika Roy29 April 2021 7:58 AMShare This – xAn Application has been filed in the suo moto matter before the Supreme Court pertaining to the COVID-19 crisis in the country seeking directions to issue authorization for using the patents for government purpose and/or notifying grant of Compulsory Licenses under Patents Act for patent covering drugs Remdesivir, Favipiravir and Tocilizumab.Filed by Jan Swasthya Abhiyan (Mumbai, which is a network of organisations and individuals, “including feminist organisations, academics, activists, service delivery networks, trade unions, whose members are citizens of India, collectively working towards health issues”, it is submitted that the Applicant has been closely monitoring and working with government health officials, NGOs to help ordinary citizens and families gain access to healthcare. The Application seeks for directions by the Supreme Court to issue authorization for using the patents for government purpose under Section 100 of the Patents Act and/or notify grant of Compulsory Licenses under Section 92 of the Patents Act for patents covering the drugs Remdesivir, Favipiravir and Tocilizumab. It submits that, from March 2021 onwards, India has been witnessing a second wave of the Coronavirus. “It has taken 63 days for case to rise from 8,000 on February 2, 2021 to 1,03,558 as of April 5, 2021. As of April 24, 2021, India had reported total of 24,28616 cases with a cumulative of 186920 deaths of COVID-19. In one day alone, April 26 2021 over 3.2 lacs cases of COVID-19 were reported and deaths crossed over 2,000 over seven days running”. Stating that the second wave is more virulent and infectious than the first wave, the Application underlines that a rapid response is needed with the Centre permitting the repurposing of known drugs and issuing guidelines for treatment of COVID-19. Repurposing of old drugs is a strategy wherein known compounds with known biochemical and physiological effects are used to treat a new disease – which in this case is COVID-19. This is known as repurposing of drugs”. The Applications sets out three drugs enlisted for the treatment: Remdesivir, a drug developed in 2009 to treat Hepatitis C, which is a patented drug in India and whose patent is held by Gilead Sciences, Inc. It is submitted that ordinarily, one chemical compound should have only one patent, but in the case of this drug, three patents have been granted, thereby resulting in market monopoly for Gilead till 2035. It is then submitted that while Remdesivir is provided by the licensees between a price range of INR 899 to 3490, the same is being sold in the black market at a price as high as INR 30,000 per vial due to limited stocks and shortages, which has been recognized by the CDSCO which has attempted to put into place a monitoring mechanism to ensure availability of this drug. The second drug is Tocilizumab, which is an immunosuppressive drug which is a known treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. While Remdesivir is given to patients with moderate symptoms, Tocilizumab is essential for persons who are critical and need intensive care. With respect to his drug, patent has been granted to Chugai Seiyaku Kabushiki Kaisha and F. Hoffman La Roche AG in India. It has been contended that the drug is not being manufactured in India and is being imported and marketed by Cipla, the licensee for Roche in India. “Also pegged as a rich man’s drug, the drug costs between Rs. 40,000 and 50,000 per dose in India. Reportedly, the supply for the drug with Cipla has also run out and they are unable to indicate a date when the next stock of the drug would arrive”. Favipiravir, the third drug, is an anti-influenza agent developed in Japan and is covered by multiple patents. There are reports of shortage of this drug in the market as well. The Application then goes on to submit that given the emergency situation in the country, a proposal was made by the Centre at the international level before the TRIPS Council at the World Trade Organisation for temporary suspension of intellectual property rights on all COVID-19 related technologies. “That is, the Respondent No. 1 has not only acknowledged the need to suspend intellectual property rights to support local manufacturing and respond to demand for diagnostics, therapeutics, vaccines and treatment, but is actively promoting it”. The Application contends that the three aforementioned drugs are protected by patents which are valid till at least 2030, and the limited number of manufacturers is a recipe to exacerbate the current national health emergency. Further, several companies are unable to manufacture the drugs, despite having the capacity to do so, in fear of legal action against them by the patentee. However, in order to respond to the demand of the drugs, there exists a need to rapidly upscale production, and the same, as per the Application, is possible only by issuing authorization for Government use or orders for compulsory license for public non-commercial use in respect of the patents covering the drugs. “The Central Government is empowered under Section 100 of the Patents Act to authorize any person to use a patented invention for the purposes of the government. In the case of Remdesivir, Favirpiravir and Tocilizumab, this power may also be exercised to authorize entities to produce these patented drugs. Additionally, Section 92 explicitly empowers the Central Government to notify that compulsory licenses for a patent in circumstances of national emergency, extreme urgency or public non-commercial use”. Submitting that providing access to essential life-saving medicines in a public health crisis of COVID-19 is an obligation of the State and that lack of or limited availability and accessibility of the medicines violates the Constitutional right to Health and Life under Article 21, the Application prays for authorization by the government of any person under Section 100 to use the patents. Further, the Application prays for compulsory licenses under Section 92 to be issued and for directions to the Centre to undertake forecasting of the courses required to treat the virus which has affected people across the country. The Application lastly seeks for the declaration that Para 32(i) of the Drug Price Control Order issued under Essential Commodities Act substituted by the order dated 3rd January 2019 as ultra vires the Essential Commodities Act and violative of Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution.The Application was settled by Senior Advocate Anand Grover, drawn by Advocate Rajeshwari Hariharan,and filed by Advocate Astha Sharma.

slidezero.com/iStock(CHARLOTTE, S.C.) — A body has been found underneath debris left behind by a large house explosion in North Carolina on Tuesday.Firefighters also discovered an injured man who was airlifted to a local hospital after he became trapped in the rubble, officials said. The explosion occurred in the wealthy suburb of Ballantyne, just south of Charlotte, leaving behind fiery rubble and over 80 firefighters scrambling to put out the fire and find any other survivors, the Charlotte Fire Department said on Twitter.People who were nearby when the explosion occurred told ABC Charlotte affiliate WSOC-TV that they felt the ground shake.“I just went out for a walk. I put my Beats on, and I walked right by the house. I walked on, maybe two minutes, and through my Beats, I heard a boom,” neighbor Lorie Porter told WSOC. “Something told me to turn around and walk back, and I started turning around, and all the neighbors started to run out of their homes. And there’s debris right where I had walked, and the house was just leveled.”Multiple people called 911 about the explosion and the ensuing fire, including the man who had been trapped inside, the fire department said, adding that he was able to lead them to his location.By Tuesday evening, firefighters had sawed through piles of wood and were using specialized listening equipment and confined space cameras to search for other possible survivors.It’s unclear what caused the explosion, which tore into the home next door, where two occupants were injured and later treated by medics on the scene. One other survivor had also been freed after they were found to be conscious and alert, the department said on Twitter.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
August 12, 2019 /Sports News – National Simone Biles lands history-making moves, gets sixth national title Written by Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailsimonkr/iStock(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) — Simone Biles made history this weekend, becoming the first female gymnast to land two new moves in competition — and easily earned herself her sixth title at the 2019 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in Kansas City, Missouri. Between preliminaries on Friday and finals Sunday, Biles made history three times over with two new moves and a record-tying all-around win.First, on Friday, she cleanly completed a double-double dismount (a double twist and double somersault) on balance beam.Had to do a double-double take @Simone_Biles is the first person in HISTORY to perform a double-double dismount on beam #USGymChamps pic.twitter.com/c5h7GkC3p2— Team USA (@TeamUSA) August 10, 2019Also on Friday, she attempted a triple-double in floor — but just barely missed a clean finish, which left her “really frustrated because I know how good I am and how well I can do,” she said then. She returned to competition Sunday rearing to get it right, and she did, becoming the first woman to cleanly complete the triple-twist, double-flip move in her first pass on floor.RESPECT THAT, BOW DOWN @Simone_Biles keeps making history! First woman to land a triple double in competition on floor pic.twitter.com/zvDO83RW9U— #TokyoOlympics (@NBCOlympics) August 12, 2019In doing so, Biles sailed to a first-place finish. With that, she tied Clara Schroth Lomady for most national titles; it’s a record that was set in the 1950s. And it wasn’t just the all-around. Biles also got first place in individual events for vault, balance beam and floor. She finished third in uneven bars.“I’m really happy with the beam dismount and how it’s come along, because if you had asked me after [U.S. Classic] if I was going to complete it, I would’ve said no,” Biles told Team USA at the competition of the beam move. “I feel like in those short two weeks we did a lot of work on a couple of the events, so I’m pretty excited with how it turned out.”If she successfully completes the floor and/or beam feat at an international meet, the skill will be named after her. The floor triple-double would be called the Biles II, as she already has one floor trick named after her. Her next chance to do so would be at the world championships in Germany in October.This year’s U.S. Gymnastics Championships has courted controversy in the wake of a massive sexual abuse scandal involving the disgraced, and now imprisoned, former sports doctor Larry Nassar. Biles was among the hundreds of other gymnasts to publicly accuse Nassar of sexual abuse. Since then, USA Gymnastics, the sports’ organizing body, has struggled to regain its athletes’ trust, as Biles made clear Wednesday, saying, “It’s hard coming here for an organization and having had them fail us so many times.”Biles had to adjust from that mood to compete this weekend and complete both her moves. “I feel like the first day I was doing angry gymnastics and I was just really upset,” she said Sunday, per Team USA, “and then today it was it was just like that’s normal and happy.” “[Biles] shouldn’t be saddled with that weight, but she’s handling it with incredible grace,” Rachael Denhollander, a former gymnast and the first to publicly accuse Nassar, told ABC News last week. “Her voice has a lot of power, and I hope she feels that, and she deserves that; she has earned that power.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
