DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 From the Orange County Sheriff’s OfficeFEMA has created a new webpage addressing myths and scams that have spread across social media and the web as Hurricane Irma approaches Florida.The “Rumor Control” page addresses issues such as a common scam saying that FEMA is hiring employees, as well as myths about diseases such as the plague being spread through flood waters (which is not true).FEMA urges that you share their webpage with friends and family to clear up these rumors and scams.Here are some of the rumors FEMA addresses:Rumor: Pets In Hotels (Transitional Sheltering Assistance)There are reports that hotels and motels participating in the Transitional Sheltering Assistance Program are legally required to accommodate pets. This is FALSE. (September 8)Hotels and motels participating in FEMA’s Transitional Sheltering Assistance Program do not fall under the Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards (PETS) Act (Pub. L. 109-308 (2006)). Please call the hotel before you go and ask if pets are permitted.Hotels must accept service animals and individuals with access and functional needs should check with the hotel to ensure if accessible lodging accommodations are available to meet their needs.Rumor: Disaster Clean-Up And InspectionsThere are reports that disaster survivors should not remove flood-damaged sheetrock, flooring, carpet, etc. until the house is assessed by FEMA or insurance adjusters. This is FALSE. (September 1)Cleaning up and making temporary repairs to your storm-damaged property will not disqualify you from federal disaster assistance.Property owners are encouraged to document storm damage to their properties – either with photographs or video – and to then begin cleaning up and making whatever temporary repairs are necessary to make their homes safe and habitable again. Put your health and safety first, take pictures of your damaged home, make repairs to prevent further damage to your property, and keep your receipts to show the inspector.Rumor: Shelters & ID CheckThere are rumors undocumented immigrants cannot go to a shelter because they will be reported to ICE or CBP. This is False.(August 27)U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have stated that they are not conducting immigration enforcement at relief sites such as shelters or food banks. In the rare instance where local law enforcement informs ICE of a serious criminal alien at a relief site that presents a public safety threat, ICE will make a determination on a case-by-case basis about the appropriate enforcement actions. More information is available at U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) joint statement. The Federal Government strongly encourages all persons to follow the guidance of local officials and seek shelter regardless of their immigration status.Most shelters are managed by local communities, the Red Cross, and other voluntary agencies. American Red Cross’ humanitarian mission is to feed, shelter, and provide other forms of support without regard to race, religion, or citizenship status. The Red Cross will not ask people to show any form of identification in order to stay in their shelters. In order to receive some Red Cross services, such as meeting with a caseworker to facilitate disaster recovery, they will need to verify a person’s pre-disaster address. For people who don’t have government-issued identification, the Red Cross can usually do this through alternative means, such as a copy of a utility bill.For more rumors and falsehoods covered on the FEMA site, go here.

With Dai Kim house (4x14m), as most of the street houses in Vietnam, the solution of natural light and ventilation is a prerequisite for the design task.Save this picture!© Triệu ChiếnWe hope to create a rhythm and flexible space, where people can live in harmony with the sun, natural wind and trees by the closest way in this small plot of land.Save this picture!© Triệu ChiếnDeviated floor solution is designed to blur the boundary between the top and the bottom, which creates a continuous connection and eliminates the sense of multi-floors (5 floors). We take advantage of the stairwell space when the floor landing is designed to be the hall of the room, creating a sense of privacy.Save this picture!© Triệu ChiếnToilet is distributed flexibly and functional spaces are separated to ensure optimum density.Save this picture!SectionWe also consider carefully bringing “nature” to living space. Nearly every location of the house always has at least a corner of the trees that will “soften” the space and make the feeling relaxed and gentle!Save this picture!© Triệu ChiếnAs a house located in the western direction, it is imperative to calculate anti-heat solution in summer. We use a 3-layer solution for anti- heat. The first layer is 220 mm external wall to prevent the direct sunlight, the second layer is a green buffer that blocks dust, generates oxygen and pushes hot air outward; the third layer is glass door to get the light and prevent indirect heat to the house. This solution makes the house always cool, light-filled and has a view of natural trees.Save this picture!© Triệu ChiếnThe whole staircase is made of iron frame and wood surface instead of concrete. Therefore, the light and wind can go freely to all the spaces of the building to create an airy and aesthetic sense for the people living in Dai Kim house.Project gallerySee allShow lessSecretariat of the Atlantic Sailing Club / StudiumSelected ProjectsGwangHwaMunHaeMul / gongsangplanetSelected Projects Share Photographs Save this picture!© Triệu Chiến+ 20Curated by María Francisca González Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/907278/dai-kim-house-aline-architect Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Vietnam Đại Kim house / Aline ArchitectSave this projectSaveĐại Kim house / Aline Architect “COPY” 2018 Area: 56 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Aline Architect Area Area of this architecture project Year: Vietnam ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/907278/dai-kim-house-aline-architect Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officeAline ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn InstagramVietnamPublished on December 09, 2018Cite: “Đại Kim house / Aline Architect” 08 Dec 2018.

This 85 square meters apartment is overlooking a small park near the core center of Tel-Aviv. The previous layout was dark and claustrophobic due to its many dividing walls and a dramatic 1m height concrete beam in the middle of the space. The apartment was renovated for a single man who wanted to embrace the exteriors green surroundings and enable as much natural light to enter the space. The first action was to find a way to shorten the beam. In order to do so, two U-shape steel beams were designed to wrap the existing concrete beam and reduce its height by half. We decided to leave the raw structural gesture in the final design as a reminder of the former layout.Save this picture!© BellerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Beller10 semi-transparent panels were created to define the “private” and “public” sections of the apartment while horizontally dividing the flat in two. One half is the entrance, kitchen and living room and the other half is a bedroom, two bathrooms and a study room. This apartment can turn into a loft in two simple gestures. The panels open easily like a harmonica suspended from the ceiling, without touching the continuous concrete floor, enabling the versatility of the space andits open layout. These panels are made from beehive shaped plastic mesh. This mesh pattern creates a dreamy feeling of endless boundaries by allowing the light to penetrate through in a unique shape that reaches every part of the space. At night, when closed, it becomes like a big light source that lights up the living room.Save this picture!© BellerThough one might think they are completely see-through, the panels, due to their thickness, become quite opaque when viewed from different angles. Taking a shower in this apartment doesn’t mean you have to disconnect from it, you can choose to lower down an electric plastic curtain hidden in the ceiling or you can just take a shower in the middle of the space.Save this picture!© BellerProject gallerySee allShow less“Making Federal Buildings Beautiful Again”: Three Comments on the Executive OrderArticlesModern Andorra: Architecture Between the PyreneesArticlesProject locationAddress:Tel Aviv-Yafo, IsraelLocation to be used only as a reference.

Reporters Without Borders said today it was shocked at the Moroccan government’s ban on distribution of the 2 February issue of the Spanish daily El Mundo because it carried an article by dissident Moroccan journalist Ali Lmrabet. Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Organisation News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders said today it was shocked at the Moroccan government’s ban on distribution of the 2 February issue of the Spanish daily El Mundo because it carried an article by dissident Moroccan journalist Ali Lmrabet. “The government will stop at nothing to shut Lmrabet up,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “After jailing him, harassing him and forbidding him from working as a journalist, it now wants to dissuade the world’s media from giving him a voice.” Without judging the content of the article, Reporters Without Borders called on the Moroccan authorities to stop banning El Mundo or any other Spanish publication and to drop the April 2005 ban on Lmrabet working as a journalist for 10 years.The Moroccan communications ministry forbade distribution of El Mundo, saying it contained an article by Lmrabet “who claims to be the paper’s correspondent in Rabat.” It said he was not accredited with the ministry as a correspondent.El Mundo said it had no obligation to register its correspondents with any ministry, in Morocco or elsewhere.Lmrabet told Reporters Without Borders that the article which caused the ban said King Mohamed VI had restricted the movements of his own mother because she had taken a lover. It quoted a former Moroccan intelligence officer. Lmrabet called the ban on the paper “grotesque” and said that “even the most repressive regimes that forbid local journalists from writing freely don’t extend the ban to their articles published in other countries.” News News Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa to go further NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say June 8, 2021 Find out more February 3, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Spanish paper banned because of article by Ali Lmrabet as harassment of journalist continues April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists News April 15, 2021 Find out more
