By provoking action and reaction between past in present through the application of contemporary architecture, the remodelling of this entire block of buildings – including landmark buildings such as Hooghuys and the former Lorette convent – adheres to this evolutionary principle.Save this picture!© Bart GosselinThe new development, Melano, is located between Hooghuys and Sweert. This apartment building deliberately leans towards Sweert and distances from Hooghuys, with a specific tension created by the cantilever on the first floor. The white brick architecture is a response to the partly lime-washed, partly plastered facade of Hooghuys and the classic uniform gables of Sweert.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanCovered terraces create a dialogue with the two-dimensionality of the historic facades on Drabstraat. In turn, integrated vertical lighting strips not only draw attention to the contemporary facade and, therefore, celebrate modern life, they also light the street and thereby dispense a contemporary idea of interaction with the public space.Save this picture!© Bart GosselinThis building is also key to the restructuring of the site. As water finds its meandering way through the landscape, this project is devoted to the penetrable. The new building provides passage, by means of a raised point of contact with Hooghuys, for an alley that runs into the rear courtyard.Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseThe re-purposed garden is a nod to the formerly sizeable Hooghuys garden, which reached Begijnenstraat and therefore provided access to the market square. Three centuries later, however, this area of greenery was closed off from Begijnenstraat by the L-shaped Lorette convent and girls’ school. The Neo-Gothic building highlights the impact of a closed and withdrawn religious community on a town.Save this picture!© Bart GosselinThis voluminous wall is now broken through on the ground level to allow access to the Fish Market through a semi-public area that succeeds the playground that was once the Hooghuys garden.

Gavin Newsom has cleared the way for barbershops and hair salons to open in counties cleared to move deeper into California’s reopening roadmap, but not Pasadena and the rest of Los Angeles County.LA County — home to roughly half of the state’s coronavirus cases and deaths — has not yet been granted the “regional variance” needed to open more types of businesses. As of Tuesday, 47 of the state’s 58 counties, including Orange County, have been granted those variances, which are based on criteria such as the rate of coronavirus infections and deaths, and availability of testing and contact-tracing.The variances allow counties to move deeper into Stage 2 of the state’s reopening roadmap, most notably allowing the resumption of limited dine-in service at restaurants and in-person retail shopping.“Along those lines, they (counties) will be able to add in barber shops and hair salons to those regional variations starting today,” Newsom said, adding that the businesses will have to operate with substantial safety modifications, such as “appropriate protective gear, particularly face coverings.”Newsom warned again, however, that as more businesses reopen, the danger of COVID-19 spreading will be heightened.“We’re moving forward. We’re not looking back, but we are walking into the unknown, the untested, literally and figuratively,” he said. “And we have to be guided by the data that brought us to this place in the first place, that is, guided by these principles of openness and transparency, principles where all of us are required to do a little bit more and little bit better to make sure we’re (preventing) the spread of this virus as we meaningfully reopen the economy of the state.”The reopening of hair salons and barbershops marks continued movement into Stage 3 of the state’s reopening plan. Other types of businesses in Stage 3, such as nail salons and fitness gyms, have not been cleared to reopen.Newsom acknowledged the demand for hair salons. He noted that his children cut his hair over the weekend, and he Tweeted out a photo of himself getting a cut.The governor said guidance will be released Wednesday for businesses such as summer camps and child care facilities.Guidelines for film and television production had been expected to be released on Monday, but Newsom said the state is still working with industry officials and unions to finalize those plans.

90 lung cancer cases in Limerick each year

first_imgDesigned by / FreepikMORE than 90 people in Limerick are diagnosed with lung cancer every year, with numbers expected to double over the coming decades.The Irish Cancer Society has said that recent research by the National Cancer Registry of Ireland shows that lung cancer incidence could double by 2045, with the possibility of substantial increases (up to 176 per cent) in the numbers of women being diagnosed.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The organisation has launched its annual lung cancer awareness campaign in a bid to increase early detection of the disease.Aoife McNamara, information development manager with the Irish Cancer Society said: “In order to address this increase, we must concentrate now more than ever on detecting lung cancer early. When lung cancer is diagnosed at stage I or II, two-thirds of patients survive at least a year compared with just one-quarter who are diagnosed with a later stage lung cancer.“When lung cancer is diagnosed late, treatment options are limited, and survival rates remain very low.“It’s really important for everyone to know the signs and symptoms of lung cancer and the importance of getting checked out. If someone has difficulty breathing, is wheezing, or has a persistent cough, it’s really important to talk to a doctor immediately.”This January, the Irish Cancer Society is also urging people to take its free online lung health checker quiz available at seeking support from the Irish Cancer Society can contact the Cancer Nurseline on Freephone 1800 200 700, email [email protected] or drop into one of 13 Daffodil Centres in hospitals Kathy [email protected].ie TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Convicted ex-lawyer on the run after allegedly killing mother, cutting off ankle bracelet

first_imgU.S. Marshals Service(ATLANTA) — The U.S. Marshals Service is conducting a nationwide manhunt after an ex-lawyer, who was supposed to turn himself in for a 30-year sentence, allegedly killed his mother, cut off his ankle monitoring bracelet and fled.Richard Merritt, 44, is wanted for the murder of his mother in DeKalb County, Georgia, after she was found “violently killed” on Feb. 2, according to U.S. Marshals.Merritt was scheduled to turn himself in to authorities in Cobb County on Feb. 1 after pleading guilty to stealing money from clients at his law firm, as well as committing elder abuse, according to a release from the Marshals Service. He was to serve 15 years in prison and 15 years probation. Instead, he is accused of stabbing his mother to death and stealing her silver Lexus SUV.The elder abuse charge was unrelated to his mother, according to an indictment.“He probably knows people all over the country, being a lawyer,” Frank Lempka, a member of the U.S. Marshals Service tasked with finding Merritt, told Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB. “He could be anywhere. We think he may be anywhere in the country.”The fugitive was a partner at Merritt & Fletcher LLC Attorneys in Smyrna, Georgia. Merritt became a lawyer in 2000 and was disbarred in January 2018, according to a ruling from the state Supreme Court. Merritt admitted in February 2017 to stealing $75,000 from a client and voluntarily surrendered his license, according to the ruling.In the criminal case for which he pleaded guilty, he was indicted on a total of 34 counts and allegedly stole over $420,000 from 17 clients. The indictment claims Merritt forged the signatures of many of his clients on checks and then cashed them and kept the money for himself.Lempka called him “very unpredictable” and said “he could hurt or kill someone else at this point.”“He may have shaved his head or otherwise changed his appearance, and should be considered armed and dangerous,” the U.S. Marshals Service said in its release. “Do not try to engage him.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
