This house is on the outskirts of Ahmedabad on a 4-acre land having dense flora, a lily pond and an existing outhouse having a vernacular typology. The new house was to be a permanent dwelling away from the city into the natural wilderness. Earlier the Munshaw family owned a colonial style house in a densely populated locality of Ahmedabad and which was build in mid 20th century. The owner’s initial brief for the new house included a preference to avoid a rigid box formation, a mention of lifestyle that was mostly outdoors, and a dwelling that would be a container for the collection of artifacts, paintings, Persian rugs, books and ancestral furniture.Save this picture!© Bharat AggarwalRecommended ProductsWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bharat AggarwalThe proposed design weaves and integrates the above concerns. The fluid curvilinear formation is a reinterpretation of imagery of old ancestral house and also to reiterate the existing natural formation on the site. The house bends to allow views of the lily pond. and simultaneously generates an element of surprise in the experience of interior space.

Health and rights linked for world’s 25 million transgender people

first_imgWhile transgender people have increasingly received public recognition, there has been little concerted effort to support and improve their health, according to a Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researcher and other authors of a special Series published in The Lancet. Compiled with input of members of the transgender community, the Series provides an assessment of the health of transgender people worldwide and offers a framework for improvement.The Series was published on June 17, 2016.The authors estimate that there are around 25 million transgender people worldwide. They say that laws and policies that deny transgender people recognition can damage their mental and physical health and make accessing care more challenging.The Series reports that transgender people suffer high rates of depression—up to 60 percent—and are at greater risk of engaging in risky behavior. Transgender people are at almost 50 times greater risk of HIV than the general population, and are at risk for violence, according to the authors. There were 2,115 documented killings of transgender people worldwide between 2008 and 2016.“There are huge gaps in our understanding of transgender health stemming from a fundamental challenge of defining this diverse group and a failure to recognize gender diversity. Nevertheless, we know enough to act,” co-author Sari Reisner, a research fellow in the Department of Epidemiology at Harvard Chan who also is affiliated with Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital, said in the journal’s press release.

Dylan Floro quietly putting up zeroes for the Dodgers

first_img“For me, I know Corey is really grinding right now, trying to work through his mechanics,” Roberts said of dropping Seager in the batting order. “We have other guys who are swinging the bats really well right now. So for him to kind of sit back and let the game come to him, get guys on base and put him in situations where he could potentially drive in a run without getting a hit, make him feel better about his at-bats, that’s a little bit of my thought behind it.“But I know once he does get going I expect him to get back to the top of the order.”REHAB CONTINUESLeft-hander Tony Cingrani made his third rehab appearance Thursday, his second with Triple-A Oklahoma City. Cingrani pitched a scoreless inning, walking one. So far, he has allowed two hits and walked two while striking out three in three innings.“He said he felt good, said he could pitch again tomorrow,” said Roberts who talked to Cingrani after Thursday’s day game in OKC. “But we’re going to run the play out, have him do the back-to-back, the one-plus.”UP NEXTNationals (RHP Anibal Sanchez, 0-5, 5.15 ERA) at Dodgers (RHP Kenta Maeda, 3-2, 4.66 ERA), Friday, 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only), 570 AM How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — There are some who are protective of Dylan Floro’s unblemished ERA.“Get away from him,” closer Kenley Jansen called from across the locker room when he saw a reporter talking to Floro before Thursday’s game. “Don’t talk to him. You’re going to jinx him.”Jansen was only partially correct. Floro gave up his first runs of the season in the eighth inning against the Washington Nationals. But his ERA remains 0.00 – both runs were unearned.Floro’s 16-1/3 innings before that were the most by any reliever in the majors without giving up a run this season. Right-handed hitters are particularly vexed facing Floro. They are 6 for 47 (.128) with 10 strikeouts. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start That place is the anonymous world of a middle reliever – which is fine with him.“I’m perfectly fine with where I’m at right now. I’m not the most talkative guy anyway,” Floro said with a smile.SEAGER SLUMPShortstop Corey Seager batted fifth in the lineup Wednesday night and went 1 for 4 with an infield single to drive in a run. Batting right in front of him, Cody Bellinger was intentionally walked twice.Thursday, Roberts dropped Seager to sixth in the lineup – the lowest he has batted in a regular-season lineup since his rookie season in 2016 – with David Freese and Max Muncy between Bellinger and Seager.“It can. But I don’t think it’s going to weigh on Corey,” Roberts said when asked if that strategy might bother a player. “If teams keep doing that, they’re going to pay. He’s too good of a hitter and mentally I don’t worry about his psyche.”Seager took a four-game hitting streak into Thursday’s game but was just six for his last 42 (.143) without a home run since April 12.Related Articles “I’m just executing pitches right now,” Floro said. “Getting ahead of guys for the most part. When I have a chance to put guys away, I’m putting them away, going to the fastball up. I think the key thing is the mentality – getting ahead of them, putting it more in my count and then putting them away with the right pitch.“I’m going out there and I’m not thinking about pitches two and three. I’m thinking about that one hitter and that one pitch and that’s all. I’m focusing on that one pitch and that’s all that matters at that time.”Acquired from the Cincinnati Reds last July, Floro has quietly been a valuable part of the Dodgers’ bullpen ever since. He has been charged with five runs in 45 innings as a Dodger (1.00 ERA) and held hitters to a .178 average.“Dylan has a lot of confidence, a lot of conviction,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “If you talk about the mix, he has a sinker that can get a ball on the ground, that can bore in on a right-handed hitter. He has a 94 mph fastball, a four-seamer, that can beat a bat, that he can pitch with at the top of the zone and keep them off his slider. So when you’re talking about the righty, those things make him very effective.“But I think it’s just the confidence he has. And I think we’ve done a good job of using him and not over-using him. Dylan’s in a good place.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more
