The landscape that the client would like to see from his room was an important piece of information that should be thought. The land is large (almost 3000 sqm) and corner. The position of the room needed to contemplate the incredible landscape (on the left side there is a view of nature, a mix of mountains with the vegetation of the cerrado). At the same time, the customer also wanted an internal view of the lot (garden, pool, etc).Save this picture!© Edgard CesarSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Edgard CesarThe integration between spaces is one of the highlights. It was one of the customer’s requests for a house in which he could receive people very well. Then, the house integrates leisure, balcony and all the social part, when they are with the doors open. And from the bedrooms, once the hallway doors open, also overlook the pool. The house is all white-clad and defined by few traces.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarThe pool was also an important element in which a very interesting resource was used: the pool is winding in the deepest part and has a simpler shape in its outline.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarThe furniture is Brazilian, furniture that the customer can use in their day to day. The house does not have any type of hierarchy, everything is very integrated, to have a more intense use. In this way, the living, the home, the dinner, the porch, everything has a very similar importance within the concept of the house.Save this picture!© Edgard CesarProject gallerySee allShow lessHerzog & de Meuron’s M+ Museum Tops Out in Hong KongArchitecture NewsThe Top Creative Cities and Countries of 2018 According to AirbnbArchitecture News Share 2014 CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Brazil Area:  560 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Edgard Cesar+ 40Curated by Pedro Vada Share Year:  Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Brazil Architects: Leo Romano Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/906161/paes-leme-house-leo-romano Clipboard Paes Leme House / Leo RomanoSave this projectSavePaes Leme House / Leo Romano CopyAbout this officeLeo RomanoOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBrazilPublished on November 30, 2018Cite: “Paes Leme House / Leo Romano” [Casa Paes Leme / Leo Romano] 30 Nov 2018.

Newscenter_img News News Reporters Without Borders said it was outraged after the Tunisian authorities turned back its Secretary General Robert Ménard on his arrival in Tunis to attend the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).Plain clothes Tunisian police officers physically prevented Ménard from leaving an Air France plane after it touched down in Tunis on 17 November 2005. One officer told the head of the worldwide press freedom organisation that he had no right to get off the plane since he did not have accreditation for the WSIS.Reporters Without Borders said, “We are also staggered by the complicity of the organisers of the World Summit on the Information Society and to some extent, France, which did nothing to ensure his attendance at this international summit.“From being a masquerade, the WSIS has turned into a scandal,” the organisation added.As Ménard was prevented from leaving the plane, another police officer filmed the incident without permission from the Air France crew.Ménard told police that it was untrue he did not have accreditation, his UN accreditation number was 10 30 191. He received no further explanation from police officers at the door of the plane and on the tarmac.

Skin pigmentation is far more complex than thought

first_imgMany studies have suggested that the genetics of skin pigmentation are simple. A small number of known genes, it is thought, account for nearly 50 percent of pigment variation. However, these studies rely on data sets that heavily favor northern Eurasian populations — those that reside mostly in higher latitude regions.Reporting in the today’s issue of Cell, researchers from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Stanford University, and Stony Brook University report that while skin pigmentation is nearly 100 percent heritable, it is hardly a straightforward, Mendelian trait. By working closely with the KhoeSan, a group of populations indigenous to southern Africa, the researchers have found that the genetics of skin pigmentation become progressively complex the closer populations reside to the equator, with an increasing number of genes — known and unknown — involved, each making a smaller overall contribution.“Africa has the greatest amount of phenotypic variability in skin color, and yet it’s been underrepresented in large-scale endeavors,” said Alicia Martin, a postdoctoral scientist in the lab of Broad Institute member Mark Daly. “There are some genes that are known to contribute to skin pigmentation, but by and large there are many more new genes that have not been discovered.”“We need to spend more time focusing on these understudied populations in order to gain deeper genetic insights,” said Brenna Henn, assistant professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University and, with Martin, a co-corresponding author.The paper is a culmination of seven years of research that spanned several institutions, starting with a collaboration between Stellenbosch University in South Africa and Carlos Bustamante’s lab at Stanford, where Martin and Henn trained. Martin, Henn, and their colleagues spent a great deal of time with the KhoeSan, interviewing individuals, taking anthropometric measurements (height, age, gender), and using a reflectometer to quantitatively measure skin color. In total, they accumulated data for approximately 400 individuals.The researchers genotyped each sample, looking at hundreds of thousands of sites across the genome to identify genetic markers linked with pigmentation measure, and sequenced particular areas of interest. They took this information and compared it to a data set that comprised nearly 5,000 individuals representing globally diverse populations throughout Africa, Asia, and Europe.What they found offers a counter-narrative to the common view on pigmentation.The prevailing theory is that “directional selection” pushes pigmentation in a single direction, from dark to light in high latitudes and from light to dark in lower latitudes. But Martin and Henn’s data showed that the trajectory is more complex. Directional selection, as a guiding principle, seems to hold in far northern latitudes. But as populations move closer to the equator, a dynamic called “stabilizing selection” takes effect. Here, an increasing number of genes begins to influence variability. Only about 10 percent of this variation can be attributed to genes known to affect pigmentation.In addition, the researchers found some unexpected insights into particular genes associated with pigmentation. A derived mutation in one gene, SLC24A5, is thought to have arisen in Europe roughly 10,000 to 20,000 years ago. However, in the KhoeSan populations it appears at a much higher frequency than recent European admixture alone would suggest, indicating that it has either been positively selected in this population, actually arose in this population, or entered the population through gene flow thousands of years ago. “We’re still teasing this apart,” said Martin.They also found that a gene called SMARCA2/VLDLR, which has not previously been associated with pigmentation in humans, seems to play a role among the KhoeSan. Several different variants are all uniquely associated with pigmentation near these genes, and variants in these genes have been associated with pigmentation in animals.“Southern African KhoeSan ancestry appears to neither lighten nor darken skin,” said Martin. “Rather, it just increases variation. In fact, the KhoeSan are approximately 50 percent lighter than equatorial Africans. Ultimately, in northern latitudes pigmentation is more homogenous, while in lower latitudes, it’s more diverse — both genetically and phenotypically.”“The full picture of the genetic architecture of skin pigmentation will not be complete unless we can represent diverse populations worldwide,” said Henn.Martin is a member of both the Program in Medical and Population Genetics and the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research at the Broad Institute. This work is part of the Stanley Center’s global initiative to ensure that data sets increasingly represent individuals from developing countries.This research was funded by the Stanford Center for Computational, Evolutionary, and Human Genomics.last_img read more

Ronaldo extends scoring streak to keep Juve ahead of Inter, Lazio

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo stretched his scoring streak to nine consecutive league games with a penalty double as Serie A leaders Juventus bounced back from their defeat by Napoli with a 3-0 win over Fiorentina, whose owner said Sunday’s result left him feeling “disgusted”.But title rivals Inter Milan and Lazio also got back to winning ways, with Romelu Lukaku and Ciro Immobile bagging a brace apiece for their respective teams to keep the pressure on the eight-time defending champions.Juventus hold a three-point lead over second-placed Inter Milan, who beat Udinese 2-0. Lazio are a further two points adrift, with a game in hand, after top-scorer Immobile and Felipe Caicedo both scored twice in a 5-1 thrashing of rock-bottom SPAL.Ronaldo slotted in his goals in either half in Turin, with Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt heading in a third in injury time.”Good to get back to victories and happy to score again in our stadium! Proud to reach 50 goals with the bianconeri shirt!,” Ronaldo wrote on Twitter.Juventus had fallen to just their second defeat of the season last weekend at coach Maurizio Sarri’s former club Napoli. Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso was furious at the penalty decisions that condemned his 14th-placed team.”I am disgusted with what I saw today,” blasted the Italian-born US businessman who bought the Tuscany club last year.”Juve are very strong, a team with a wage bill of 350 million doesn’t need help. Referees cannot decide matches.”Today they gave two penalties against us, maybe the first was there but the second certainly wasn’t.”Juventus vice-president Pavel Nedved hit back, declaring he was “a bit fed up of these controversies”.”Juve won with merit. Teams have to stop trying to look for excuses and accept defeat.”Ronaldo, 34, slotted in the opener five minutes before the break after German Pezzella’s handball was confirmed by VAR.His second came 10 minutes from time for a disputed Federico Ceccherini foul on Rodrigo Bentancur, making it 14 goals in nine games to bring his tally to 19 in Serie A this season, including seven penalties.He also becomes the first Juventus player to score in nine straight league games since David Trezeguet in December 2005.The former Real Madrid player has now scored 50 goals in 70 games since moving to Juventus in 2018.- ‘Great fight’ -Ronaldo is second only in the goalscoring charts this season to Immobile who now has 25 goals after Lazio kept alive their push for a first Scudetto since 2000.Immobile volleyed in on just three minutes, with Caicedo scoring a rebound less than quarter of an hour later.Immobile’s second came before the half-hour mark and he then played a role in Caicedo’s second seven minutes before the break.Substitute Bobby Adekanye came on after the break with the former Liverpool youngster tapping in his first Serie A goal.”Caicedo, Immobile and (Joaquin) Correa are untouchable,” said Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi, whose side could move second when they play their postponed match against Hellas Verona next Wednesday.In Udine, Lukaku grabbed a double to bring his tally to 16 league goals and get Antonio Conte’s side back on track after three consecutive 1-1 draws.The former Manchester United striker collected Nicolo Barella’s pass and curled an excellent finish through the legs of Udinese defender Bram Nuytinck in the 64th minute.And he added a second from the penalty spot seven minutes later when Udinese goalkeeper Juan Musso rushed out to fell Alexis Sanchez in the box.”It’s a great fight at the top,” said Lukaku. “It’s important for us to be up there too as we have a huge clash with Milan coming up.”Atalanta moved fourth despite being held 2-2 by struggling Genoa, jumping ahead of Roma on head-to-head record, after the capital side fell 4-2 at Sassuolo on Saturday.Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed Milan’s game with flu, with the eighth-placed northerners held 1-1 by 10-man Verona.Torino plunged further into crisis, following last weekend’s seven-goal thrashing by Atalanta with a 4-0 defeat by lowly Lecce.Topics :last_img read more

I never came across the tutorials from Google, Mozilla or PromoteJS while doing my research for that post. I just checked, and although W3Schools’ JavaScript tutorial still comes up as the top search result for “JavaScript Tutorial” none of the sites W3Fools lists were found in the first 10 pages of results for a search for “JavaScript Tutorial.” This shows the uphill battle other tutorial writers face when competing with W3Schools.W3Fools is calling on W3Schools to wikify its tutorials so that readers can fix mistakes. W3Schools does have an e-mail address for corrections. When asked whether W3Fools had contacted W3Schools, co-author Boaz Sender replied “Yes, and I believe a number of them have been made.” Update: Another of the authors, Paul Irish says the authors did not contact W3Schools ahead of time.There is a thread on the W3Schools forum discussing W3Fools.

Instagram Faces Rising Tide of Spam

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img john paul titlow Tags:#Photo Sharing Services#web Instagram is exploding. The mobile photo-sharing app is set to hit its 100 millionth user before its second birthday, an early growth rate that puts Facebook and Twitter to shame. As the user base grows, though, so too does the black tide of spam. “More Followers,” “More Likes”In recent weeks, many users have noticed an uptick in fake followers, usually with usernames such as “more_followers_here” or “more_likes_here” followed by a series of random numbers.    What’s the point of spamming Instagram? Historically, comment threads on popular photos have been a breeding ground for aggressive “follow me!” requests. While those tactics are certainly spam-like, they’re not as intensely opportunistic as what these new accounts are attempting to do. The spam-proliferating accounts typically post no photos and have very few followers. They offer a link to a site that purports to let users buy new followers and likes. The site, whose domain is registered to one Naree Ka Ebooks in Thailand, offers packages starting at $30 for 2,000 new followers, up to $800 for 100,000. For less than $250, the site promises to land any photo on Instagram’s “most popular” page. That is, when you convert the price for this from pounds to dollars. Why this item is listed in pounds while every other item is priced in dollars is anybody’s guess. In any event, the site’s claim that it can get a photo to the popular page has about as much merit as SEO come-ons to wrangle the #1 search result on Google. The look and feel of this scam is similar to that of an earlier spam campaign that promised free gift cards to Instagram users. Anti-Spam MeasuresThat said, Instagram has done a pretty good job keeping the spam at bay. While the network has experienced an uptick in spammy-looking bot followers, the overall experience of using the service, like any social network, is still dictated by whom you choose to follow. Compared to your email inbox, Instagram is squeaky clean. “We have a  team that works really hard to identify spam through community flags, and we stop it as soon as it starts,”  Instagram’s Community Evangelist Jessica Zollman said in a thread on Quora. One of Instagram’s most frequently-cited shortcomings also turns out to be helpful in curtailing spam. The service’s lack of a Web app, combined with the fact that links left in comment threads don’t work, mean that flooding Instagram with URLs – the heart of every spammy SEO campaign in history – is useless. That doesn’t mean that spammers couldn’t dilute the experience as the service scales. The Instagram team seems to be aware of this and has pushed out new features designed to help the community collectively fight spam. In the version that was released last week, users can flag individual comments as spam, since that might lead to an influx of spammy and low-quality images.   last_img read more

POLICE ARE APPEALING TO THE PUBLIC TO SHARE INFORMATION ON ANY ILLEGAL/SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES, NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR INSIGNIFICANT (THE TIP) MAY SEEM, MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC ARE URGED TO ANONYMOUSLY CONTACT THE POLICE AT 919 OR CRIME STOPPERS AT 328-TIPS (8477) (NEW PROVIDENCE) OR 1-242-300-8477 (FAMILY ISLANDS)CRIME PREVENTION TIP OF THE WEEK – If a crime occurs – report it!Everyone should consider it his/her responsibility to report crime. Many criminals target favorite areas and have predictable methods of operation. When you report all the facts about a crime, it helps the police assign officers in the places where crimes are occurring or where they are most likely to occur. If you don’t report crime, this allows the criminal to continue to operate without interference.In many cases, it is the information provided by victims and witnesses that leads to the arrest of a criminal. So tell the police as much as you can; no fact is too trivial. The police need the eyes and ears of all citizens.Please visit the Royal Bahamas Police Force Website at www.royalbahamaspolice.org or facebook page at www.facebook.com/rbpforce for Latest News, Daily Crime Reports and additional Crime Prevention Tips.Press Release: RBPF MALE AND FEMALE IN CUSTODY FOR ARMED ROBBERYReports are that shortly after 5:00pm, Mobile Division officers took an adult male and an adult female into custody for questioning reference to armed robbery on Sunday 5th November 2017.The two suspects were found in possession of two cell phones taken during an armed robbery sometime in October 2017.
