Domo Dom is a one person’s house with the full program necessary for comfortable living, however with one restriction – minimization of required surface.The name “one person’s house”, unlike “house for singles”, does not imply owner’s lifestyle. The One Person’s House provides potential inhabitant with comfort of having the house, intimacy with nature, distance from neighbor and quite important feature nowadays, garage – for car, motorcycle or bike with storing space, for example for windsurf board with the sail. Everything depends form the owners character.Save this picture!Section AAWhile thinking of a basic program for the house we say in one breath: living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and of course… garage. The program, after summing up gives us significant number of square meters, however this house opposes generally accepted views. The main idea of the project was to design each room in the way that they do not lose anything from their functionality. In the same time, the house has to meet land development conditions that impose using gable roofs.Save this picture!© Tomasz ZakrzewskiThe concept of the house is simple cube which includes the main function – living room with the kitchenette and the bedroom. In order to fulfill land development conditions, the bedroom was lifted to the loft and the garage was moved under it. The stairs leading to the bedroom are based on the garage wall. The windows along the stairs brighten the staircase. In the same time their shape underlines the dynamism of the building which rises in the same direction. The bedroom is illuminated by three skylight situated on the eastern part of the roof. Living room has glazing windows on western site.Save this picture!© Tomasz ZakrzewskiMaterials used to finish the house were chosen to fit the building into the neighborhood. The house is located in Zakamycze Street in Krakow, on the edge of Wolski forest. The area consists of modern architecture and aged rural houses, as well as, strictures of Fortress Krakow, such as forts and bomb shelters. Garage is coated with thin, bright, grey sandstone without any flaws and stains.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe rest of the house is covered with black, titanium-zinc plates. Those materials were traditional used in surrounding area.

Manchester City to bring forward Balotelli contract talks

first_imgMario Balotelli is set to be rewarded for his growing status by being offered a new contract by Manchester City, according to headline-grabbing striker’s current agreement runs until 2015 but City officials want to bring forward talks on a new deal to early in the New Year.The Premier League champions resisted a €50 million (£40m) offer from big-spending Paris-Saint Germain this summer as well as sustained interest from the Serie A elite.Balotelli’s two-year spell at the Etihad Stadium has been littered with controversy on and off the field, with manager Roberto Mancini having made no attempt to hide his frustration at his countryman’s antics.But City are wary of allowing the Italy international’s contract to run into its final two years, when his sale-on value will begin to considerably understands that the club are preparing to rocket the forward, who turned 22 last week, towards the top end of their pay scale. Balotelli is currently on €140,000-a-week (£110,000) and negotiations are likely to centre on the player joining the likes of David Silva, Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez in the top bracket of City earners on around €255,000-a-week (£200,000).The forward is represented by super-agent Mino Raiola, who stated that the player is now worth €255 million (£200m) following his impressive displays at Euro 2012.He also masterminded Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s €37 million (£29m) switch from AC Milan to PSG this summer, earning the Swede €320,000-a-week (£250,000) after tax.Balotelli insists that he is happy in Manchester but has refused to rule out a move back to his homeland or one of the Spanish giants in the next couple of years.There is also genuine City concern that Balotelli’s cash-strapped admirers will urge the player to sit tight and continue to keep all his options open. But City’s top brass are in no mood to sell and, although the Abu Dhabi owners make it a general rule not to open contract renegotiations during the season, they want to lay down an early marker in January, steeling themselves for what could be protracted talks.last_img read more

Statement from Clippers President Andy Roeser on Donald Sterling’s TMZ recording

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Andy Roeser, president of the L.A. Clippers, today issued the following statement:“We have heard the tape on TMZ. We do not know if it is legitimate or it has been altered. We do know that the woman on the tape — who we believe released it to TMZ — is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would “get even.” Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life. He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them. He is also upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him about Earvin Johnson. He has long considered Magic a friend and has only the utmost respect and admiration for him–both in terms of who he is and what he has achieved. We are investigating this matter.”last_img read more

20 Indicted on Drug, Gun Trafficking

first_imgBy John BurtonFREEHOLD – A Monmouth County grand jury has handed down indictments against 20 individuals who, law enforcement charge, operated an extensive drug and firearms trafficking operation.The defendants, who face a wide array of charges, were among 40 arrested last summer following an investigation that began in fall 2010, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office.Authorities have named Anthony Stevenson, also known as “Nygee,” a 43-year-old Long Branch resident, as the alleged ringleader.The operation was allegedly based in Long Branch, authorities said. The eight-month investigation was initiated after the prosecutor’s Narcotics and Criminal Enterprises unit received information about the ring’s operation.The prosecutor’s office charges that during the investigation Stevenson either sold or directed one of his underlings to sell heroin to customers who turned out to be undercover officers.Authorities alleged the officers bought upward of 38 bricks of heroin from Stevenson or his associates. A brick, law enforcement officials said, contains 50 small glassine bags of the illegal drug.Along with heroin, Stevenson and his associates are also alleged to have sold cocaine to officers, authorities said.The investigation reveal­ed Stevenson relied on different suppliers operating in the Newark area, policesaid. The most significant amount allegedly came from Uwenzen Jenkins, 40, West Orange.Two of Stevenson’s associates from Asbury Park, who were under surveillance by officers, were stopped by the police in Tinton Falls after meeting with Jenkins on July 1, and found to be in possession of 40 bricks of heroin.The following month, Stevenson and another associate were stopped and arrested when they were allegedly in possession of 50 heroin bricks.Along with the narcotics, law enforcement charged that Stevenson brokered the sale of illegal guns. In one case a Stevenson associate sold a handgun in a Long Branch restaurant owned by Stevenson. Another sale allegedly occurred when Stevenson sold two assault rifles to undercover officers in the parking lot of a West Long Branch gas station, police said.Two of Stevenson’s associates, Walter Taylor III, 35, Long Branch, and Latief Forbes, 29 (no residence provided), are alleged to have operated a drug production facility in Freehold, according to the prosecutor’s office.Among the list of charges Stevenson is facing include: first degree leader of narcotics trafficking; second degree racketeering conspiracy; and numerous drug and illegal firearms possession offenses.The alleged co-conspirators are from Long Branch, Asbury Park, Neptune, Red Bank, West Orange, and two from South Carolina, who are former Long Branch residents.Stevenson’s bail was set at $2 million, cash only and no 10 percent option.He is being held at the Monmouth Correctional Institution, Freehold, pending a prosecutor-requested bond source hearing to determine whether the source of the bond is from criminal activity, First Assistant Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni said.last_img read more

Is Your Website Ready For the Coming Tablet Explosion?

first_imgTags:#biz#How To A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts center_img john paul titlow If the vast majority of analysts and pundits are to be believed, 2011 will be the year of the tablet, and the popular adoption of the devices won’t stop there. In a recent report, Forrester predicted that tablet sales could quadruple from 2010 to 2015, leading to a surge in tablet-based e-commerce and chipping away at the amount of Web traffic coming from PC’s.Many site owners are already seeing a huge uptick in users browsing from tablets, and that upward trend will continue. Is your company’s Website ready for these visitors?Test Your Site on a TabletUsing your own site on a tablet computer is the only way to get an accurate idea of what other users experience when they browse your site from such a device. The iPad runs a modified version of Safari, so if your Website works in that browser on desktops, it’s probably fine on the iPad, but there’s no guarantee. Weird issues with the layout may crop up out of nowhere. A JavaScript file could misfire. Don’t own an iPad or another tablet computer yet? Borrow one. Walk down to the Apple Store if you have to. At the very least, check to make sure your site’s design and functionality are intact.If you’re desperate, you could even download Apple’s iOS SDK, which comes with a desktop iPad simulator. There are a few Web-based simulators, but these are not reliable, because they are still using your desktop browser’s engine to render the site.Simplify the LayoutEven if your desktop site’s design renders properly on tablets, that doesn’t mean the battle is won. If simplicity is important in standard Web design, it’s even more critical in designing for the iPad and similar devices. As a rule of thumb, strip out any elements of a page’s layout that are not absolutely essential. Consider dropping that three-column layout for two columns. In many cases, cleaning up your site’s design for the benefit of tablet browsers will have the added advantage of making the desktop browsing experience better. Keep in mind some of the unique features of the tablet form factor. Users swipe and touch rather than scrolling and clicking. They can turn the device on its side and the browser will flip accordingly. You can use CSS media query declarations to adapt your site’s design depending on the device’s orientation. You could develop a different design entirely for tablet users or simply make your site’s user experience one that meets desktops and tablets halfway.Ditch the FlashThis one almost goes without saying, but if you haven’t rethought that Flash-based navigation menu or site introduction, now is the time to scrap it. Apple has made clear its stance on Flash, which will probably never be support by iOS. While Android does support Flash, so far the experience of trying to load Flash content on Android devices has not been impressive.No matter where you stand on the mobile Flash debate, it’s hard to deny that more open standards like HTML5 and JavaScript can accomplish most of what Flash does. And while the Flash experience on Android may improve over time, Apple’s iPad is overwhelmingly dominant in this space for the time being, so we have to play by their rules, to some extent. Check Your Form FieldsOne aspect of a desktop site that’s worth keeping a close eye on is its Web forms. Whether they’re used for a simple contact form, newsletter sign-up or an e-commerce shopping cart, forms are an important part of the user experience, especially for business sites. Broken or poorly formatted form fields can lead to frustration for users, who will abandon that sign-up form or shopping cart without a second thought. To see what the experience is like, try filling out the forms on your site from at least one tablet, preferably an iPad since that’s what most people are using at this point. Do the fields render clearly? Is the process tedious? If there any form fields that are not absolutely necessary, get rid of them. For formatting issues, use CSS to tweak the appearance of form fields. If it becomes necessary, you may want to consider looking at a third party form builder like Wufoo, which also makes customizing the design of Web forms a breeze. Make the User Interface App-LikeOne of the icons I tap most frequently on my iPad’s home screen is not for a native application at all, but rather the mobile Web version of Gmail, which looks and feels a lot like an iOS app. Google has done an especially good job of adapting their existing Web services to the mobile and tablet form factors, and they do so using HTML5 and JavaScript. If your technical resources and budget allow for it, consider building a tablet-specific version of your site that utilizes some of the more app-like interface elements like subtle animations and a navigation that responds to finger-swiping. This kind of Web app can be the most enjoyable to use, and your users will appreciate it. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more

World T20: Chris Gayle has quirky birthday plans

first_imgThink ‘COOL’, and if you are a cricket fan, chances are you’ll think of Christopher Henry Gayle first. That’s the aura of the man – whether he is pulling off an afro hairstyle or lime-green shades, tweeting about himself in the third person or depositing all comers beyond the long-on boundary with giant swings of his blade – he just exudes ‘cool’. Gayle turns 33 on Friday but will hold off the party till the next day, when the West Indies take on Australia in their opening match of the tournament.At an interaction after practice on Thursday, Gayle was asked about his birthday plans, and his reply, to the delight of the gathered reporters was: “I am going to spend it with the West Indian women’s team.” After peals of laughter, Gayle continued with a grin: “Well…(Ill) have a quiet drink and sit around. So, looking forward to it. But I am looking to really celebrate after a win against Australia.”When a reporter ventured to ask whether T20 had become an old man’s game, Gayle mock-chided him, saying: “You mean, I’m old?” Then, on a more serious note, he added: “I think you can play it for a long time, but it’s good to be 33 and I am looking forward to playing with all the youngsters.” Gayle is a master at clearing the boundary and, when asked for the secret behind it, he explained how it just came naturally to him.”A bit of strength work, to be honest, and once the ball is in your slot, you go for it. I am sure everyone can hit a six these days. It doesn’t seem so hard these days and with everybody getting big bats, clearing the boundary is easy. Its instinct.advertisement”I play like this naturally. Even in Test cricket and ODIs, before T20 came around, this is how I used to play. But you learn different skills in T20 and you can take them to Tests and make a lot more runs. It adds to the fun factor as well,” he said.A lot of experts have rated the West Indies as favourites for the title, an unfamiliar position for the team in recent years. But former skipper Gayle wants the team to go step by step. “Look at our team – we can bat right down; bowling-wise, we have spinners and fast bowlers. The key for us is to get to the second round and try and take it step by step.”last_img read more
