Nestled in a heritage protected inner-city suburb of Melbourne this is a home with a sense of discovery. Designing a family home can be a complex venture: a house should be functional, environmentally sensitive, affordable and a good fit into the neighbourhood. A home should provide shelter with a sense of space that is your own; it should be light filled and warm. This determines siting, layout, room proportions and the articulation of the building fabric through openings, materials and details.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThis is an extension at the back of an Edwardian weatherboard house in a residential area with an historic but diverse building stock. The built neighbourhood is dense, fragmented and eclectic, providing starting point and inspiration for our design. We opted to stretch the building over the entire length of the site, rotated it 45 degrees and pulled it apart. A somewhat unexpected move, this generated an interesting sequence of interconnected spaces and an experience of gradual revelation as you move through the house.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanArrival. The house was designed for arriving by bicycle. Entry is now through a new north facing courtyard facing that separates the old house from the new extension at the rear and provides a sense of arrival. It is formed by three walls with three different materials: weatherboard of the old house, recycled brick of the new part and a link clad in a timber screen.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe Unexpected. The timber link organises the home into children’s wing in the old and communal living areas in the new part. Placing the new buildings in a 45-degree angle generates vistas through rooms and outdoor spaces, creating complexity and depth.Save this picture!Open to The Sky. Upstairs areas in inner-city houses can often be neglected due to overlooking, building bulk and overshadowing. In many cases, they have very little relationship with the immediate neighbourhood. This house does the opposite: a first-floor patio accessible from the lounge and study is private but provides views of neighbouring buildings as well as your own. A private terrace on the second floor allows for views over rooftops, the city and the nearby mountains.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathMaterials and Details. An important attribute of a home should be thermal comfort, which is most enjoyed when achieved with passive means. The design of this house applies passive solar design principles: solar control, zoning and compartmentalisation, thermal mass, insulation and cross ventilation. It is highly insulated, features high-performance double-glazed timber doors and windows and is high in thermal mass assisted by recycled bricks for internal walls. Power is generated with a 4.75 kW grid interactive photovoltaic system. The home does not use gas; heating and hot water are generated through a heat pump; the cooktop is induction.Save this picture!© Peter ClarkeOverall, this is a comfortable family home on literally many levels. Rather than being a single object it is conceived as a series of different spaces and textures that let you experience the house like a journey that may never end.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessAjo Idea Space / Dehsar WorksSelected ProjectsBorges 3647 Apartment Building / Cité ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959892/this-house-never-ends-steffen-welsch-architects Clipboard Projects “COPY” Photographs Houses ArchDaily This House Never Ends / Steffen Welsch Architects “COPY” Year: Australia Architects: Steffen Welsch Architects Area Area of this architecture project This House Never Ends / Steffen Welsch ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThis House Never Ends / Steffen Welsch ArchitectsSave this picture!© Peter Clarke+ 36Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyHouses, Extension•Melbourne, Australia 2020 CopyAbout this officeSteffen Welsch ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionMelbourneOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on April 13, 2021Cite: “This House Never Ends / Steffen Welsch Architects” 12 Apr 2021.

When I first heard of the Justice back in law school, I wondered what the fuss was all about – after all, she was just another Judge of the American top court. Curiosity made me read about her and watch her speak on YouTube – only then did I learn that she was a giant and an inspiration, which perhaps was the reason for her Rockstar image. Born in a 1933 in a Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York, Ruth Bader, she was not brought up in great luxury. Two days before her high school graduation, where she finished top of the class, she lost her mother Celia to cancer. She went to the prestigious Cornell for College on scholarship, and that is where she met her partner for life, Marty Ginsburg. Soon after graduation from Cornell, Ruth and Marty got married till death did them apart in 2010. When she joined the prestigious Harvard University, she was one of only nine women students, and the then dean invited the nine to a dinner, where he asked them to justify why they deserved the seat which could have been occupied by a man! Soon, she proved her mettle, and became the first woman on the Harvard Law Review. Amazingly, Ruth not only had a child, but she had to tender to her husband. Marty, who also was studying at Harvard at the time, was diagnosed with cancer. So, Ruth, would not only attend to her classes and her work, but also would type out notes for Marty borrowed from his classmates, who was recuperating, apart from taking care of their child. When Marty moved to New York, she moved with him, to complete her law from Columbia. Though she graduated top of her class, as was her habit, Ruth Bader Ginsburg had no job, for women in the 1959 were not welcome to law firms. In fact, after being selected to clerk with Justice Felix Frankfurter, she was unceremoniously dropped when the Justice got to know that she had a couple of kids and an ailing husband. Her sex and motherhood were the obstacle. “To be a woman, a Jew, and a mother to boot was a bit much” in 1959 she has remarked. She finally briefly worked with a Judge as law clerk, and then as a law professor. She then associated herself with the ACLU and NAACP, and began working on civil rights cases. She was one of the leading voices of feminist jurisprudence, and was a specialist in sex discrimination cases. Her moment came, when Marty, a tax attorney, urged her to take up a case which was a challenge to an Internal Revenue Code was discriminatory, as the tax deduction for the cost of a caregiver to his mother was not available to single working men, as juxtaposed to single working women. This, Ruth argued before the Appeals Court, was solely on the basis of sex. And she succeeded. She wrote several briefs for matters relating to gender discrimination, and she appeared in several cases before the Supreme Court. It is no secret that she has been an advocate against gender discrimination, and has been instrumental in the manner in which the Supreme Court has decided these cases. She said, she had spent ten years of her life litigating cases, “I don’t say women’s rights – I say the constitutional principle of equal citizenship stature of men and women.” A terrible cook by her own confession, she was banished from the kitchen by Marty and her two children, and left to deal with the law. In 1980, President Carter nominated her to the DC Circuit of the US Court of Appeal, informally considered the stepping stone to the Supreme Court. She served there for 14 years, till President Clinton nominated her to fill in the vacancy of Justice Byron White, who retired after a stint of just over three decades. Not surprisingly, Marty played a pivotal role in her appointment to the top Court. Although on his shortlist, President Clinton was not keen on appointing Judge Ginsburg, he agreed to interview with her. And after the interview, President Clinton was sure that he had found his nominee. She appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and in her opening credited Marty thus: “I have had the great fortune to share life with a partner truly extraordinary for his generation, a man who believed at age eighteen when we met, and who believes today, that a woman’s work, whether at home or on the job, is as important as a man’s. I attended law school in days when women were not wanted by most members of the legal profession. I became a lawyer because Marty and his parents supported that choice unreservedly.” Before the Judiciary Committee, Judge Ginsburg did something several nominees have skirted over the years. She openly spoke on abortion, and said it was central to a woman’s life and dignity, and that it was a decision that she must make herself. She was confirmed by the Senate 97:3, and became the second woman to be appointed to the Bench of the Supreme Court of the United States. Unlike our Supreme Court, Justices of the American Supreme Court are appointed for life, and therefore the impact of a Justice’s tenure is much more. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg served for 26 years, from 1994, till she passed away. And a reading of her many judgments, and dissents speak for themselves as a measure of her impact as an unabashed liberal. Her friendship with the conservative giant, Justice Antonin Scalia, is a classic example of how professional and personal views are compartmentalized. For every view she held, Justice Scalia held an exact opposite view. Having served with him on the DC Circuit, it is not secret that Justice Scalia also recommended her name to President Clinton, when asked. She enjoyed the opera, and even participated in them with Justice Scalia. On the Court, she, along with Justice Sandra Day O’Conner carved out a place for women on the Court, which until the appointment of Justice O’Conner in 1981, had been an all men. At an event, when asked how many women Judges would the Supreme Court need to have, for it to be enough, she said “Nine” without batting an eyelid. Justice Ginsburg was also famous for her collars – a different one for each occasion, including one she wore when dissenting. After the death of her beloved husband Marty in 2010, the man behind this very successful woman, she continued to serve the Court with distinction. She followed a very strict workout routine even at a very advanced age. And she had a terrific sense of humour. When she was seen on camera nodding off during the State of the Union Address, she confessed to having had one too many glasses of wine at dinner. When asked of when she would retire, she said she still had it in her to go on and would cite the example of the liberal Justice Stevens who had set a precedent of retiring at 90. She became an icon, and was famously called the “Notorious RBG”. Her fans even said “There is no truth without Ruth”. This despite fighting off cancer thrice over, in 1999, 2009 and 2018, before succumbing to it yesterday. What I have written here is a little part of her phenomenal life. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been a giant in a small frame, and has been an inspiration to many, including someone like me all the way on the other side of the World. I have deliberately not ventured into her opinions and take on the law – for those are reflective of Justice Ginsburg – the Judge. This piece was primarily a tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg – the student, mother, wife, lawyer, Appeals Court Judge and finally Supreme Court Justice. She is not just an icon for women’s rights, but an iconic figure for all those students of law – lawyers, academics and Judges alike. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wanted to be remembered as “someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability. And to help repair tears in her society, to make things a little better through the use of whatever ability she has…” I don’t see any other way of remembering her legacy. RIP RBG.

iStock(DENVER) — In the latest bid to solve the question of mysterious drone sightings vexing authorities in northeastern Colorado, a state surveillance airplane loaded with sophisticated cameras and sensors was launched Monday evening.However, it did not detect any suspicious drone activity Monday despite a five hour-flight over the area besieged by recent reports of drone sightings, officials told ABC News.The plane took off around 5 p.m. Monday, flying a spaghetti-shaped pattern over northeast Colorado before returning to its base at the Centennial Airport south of Denver, according to FlightRadar.The search was part of an effort to get answers to a series of reported drone sightings across parts of Colorado and Nebraska since mid-December.“(Colorado Department of Public Safety) participated in a joint operation last night to investigate the source of the mystery drones; the joint operation found no verification of suspicious drones,” said Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management spokeswoman Nicki Trost in an email. “We are actively monitoring reports of suspicious activity and will take action based on the level of activity and information being gathered by the Colorado Information Analysis Center.”At the same time and in the same area of Monday’s surveillance flight, multiple people were still posting to drone-spotting Facebook groups that they could see one or more of the objects in the air.“This is sort of a modern version of the UFO hysteria in that people think they see something and all of a sudden everybody thinks they see something,” said retired Col. Steve Ganyard, a former Marine fighter pilot and ABC News consultant. “But they’re really seeing nothing or they’re seeing something that’s eventually going to be easily explained scientifically.”Multiple government agencies have denied that any of the reported drones belong to them. Ganyard says it is unlikely that the U.S military is flying drones in the area, or attempting to cover up their existence.“If the military wanted to keep something secret, they have lots of places in the U.S. where they could fly them and no one would ever know,” according to Ganyard.On Monday, officials announced a drone task force that includes local law enforcement agencies, the Federal Aviation Administration and the FBI.The airplane launched Monday, known as the multi-mission aircraft, or MMA, is a Pilatus PC-12 turboprop airplane equipped with three cameras that see in color and infrared modes able to see through smoke, but not clouds.The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control website describes the primary mission of the airplane as wildfire detection, “in addition to providing near real time information to ground forces during initial attack on wildfires.” Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

TRUMP THE FUTURE DEMOCRATMaking Sense by Michael ReaganPresident Trump keeps making me look good.Last week we repeated the sound advice we’ve frequently given him but which he regularly refuses to take – know when to shut up and listen to your staff.This week he sabotaged himself yet again.He totally wasted about 95 percent of the generally favorable media coverage and bipartisan huzzahs he got for his Afghanistan policy speech on Monday night.He could have basked in the Afghan afterglow all week long and hit a few hundred balls on the practice range.But instead by Tuesday night he was in Phoenix and up to his old dumb tricks, bashing Arizona’s Republican senators John McCain and Jeff Flake, rehashing what he said about Charlottesville and throwing old and new spitballs at the fake media.It’s hopeless.He just can’t stop himself.He can’t let anything go.He can’t quit campaigning for the job he’s already won.And he can’t keep from bashing the Republicans in Congress he so desperately needs.It seems he’s doing everything he can to get his base to vote Republicans out of power in 2018.He wants to get rid of Flake. He certainly doesn’t like McCain.He’s rough on Republican Congressional leaders Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan – even though 70 pieces of legislation, some with bipartisan support and some especially pleasing to conservatives, have become law in the last seven months.Like the media he hates, President Trump says virtually nothing about those many legislative accomplishments and almost nothing positive about the Republicans who got them passed.But if he really wants to fix the tax system, get immigration reform or replace Obamacare some day, he’s going to need those Senate Republicans he’s been picking on.The best way to get them to be a part of his team is not to hold a personal pro-Trump rally and use them as punching bags and punch lines.Maybe the president is just trying to be a nice guy and doesn’t want to pick on the leaderless, rudderless, just-say-no-to-Trump Democrats when they’re so hapless, pathetic and confused.Maybe he has a long-term secret plan to blow up the two-party system, or prove that Republicans and Democrats in Washington are so much alike ideologically that it doesn’t matter what party you join.But if he keeps it up much longer,President Trump will have a Democrat-controlled Congress in 2018 and then we Republicans are going to be asking him not to sign legislation to help us, but to help us by vetoing it.Meanwhile, if the president stumbles any farther down this road to Republican Party ruin we might see him change his party affiliation.He has no ideology, no party principles to uphold. What’s it matter to him if he converts to a registered Democrat? It’s what he was most of his life anyway.You never know with Trump. But even if he switched parties in 2020, it probably wouldn’t matter much.The same forgotten Flyover Country people that put Hillary out to pasture and Donald into the White House would storm his huge rallies, cheer their Nascar hats off and later pull the Democrat lever for Trump with delight.He’d easily win the Democrat nomination because they have no one to run against him. The Hate Trump media couldn’t stop him.And he’d easily get reelected president in 2020 as a Democrat because he’d have spent four years destroying the Republican Party.EDITOR’S FOOTNOTE: Any comments posted in this column do not represent the views or opinions of the City County Observer or our advertisers.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
The Harvard Medical School (HMS) Center for Primary Care announced the formation of an Academic Innovations Collaborative that will provide more than $10 million in resources over two years to nine HMS-affiliated hospital-based primary care teaching practices and eight affiliated community health practice partners. The center will award more than $5 million in grants to the selected affiliates who will directly match the funds, totaling more than $10 million.“Harvard Medical School, the Center for Primary Care and Harvard’s affiliated clinical entities share a mutual commitment to transforming care delivery within their networks to benefit patients, clinicians, trainees and society,” said Jeffrey S. Flier, dean of the faculty of medicine at HMS.The goal is to create a platform for training future health care leaders by transforming Harvard-affiliated primary care teaching practices through innovation in four key areas: team-based primary care, management and prevention of chronic illnesses, management of patients with multiple illnesses, and patient empowerment and behavior change.“It is well known, and has been well documented, that primary care in the United States is in crisis,” said David Bates, one of three co-interim directors of the Center for Primary Care. “If the U.S. is to have higher-quality care at lower costs, primary care models will have to change, and this initiative provides the local grantees the chance to innovate solutions.”View the list of grantees.
John “Jack” Gorman Keane, who served as Martin J. Gillen dean emeritus and Korth professor of strategic management in the Mendoza College of Business, died Thursday at the age of 89, the University announced in a Monday press release.Keane served in the former role from 1989 – 1997 and in the latter from 1989 – 2010. According to the release, his key priorities as dean were “strengthening the college’s academic reputation” with an emphasis on “business ethics and international business” and increasing the diversity of the student body and faculty of the business school.University President Emeritus Fr. Edward Malloy said Keane’s work centered on ethics and synthesizing the “theoretical and practical” elements of a business career.“Jack Keane was a devoted Notre Dame dean and a consummate professional who always emphasized the moral dimension of business and the need for creative and effective leadership,” Malloy said in the release. “He sought to integrate the theoretical and practical as manifest in government service and the world of business.”Keane graduated with undergraduate degrees from Notre Dame and Syracuse University, the release said. He earned his MBA from Indiana University and his Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh. He also studied at Sophia University in Tokyo.Before joining the Notre Dame faculty, Keane served as the 18th director of the Census Bureau during the administration of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan from 1984 – 1987. During his time as director, Keane testified before Congress more than 40 times and signed agreements with a number of different nations, including the Soviet Union, China, Mexico and Canada, among others.Keane was also an Air Force veteran who served in the Korean War with private sector experience at J. Walter Thompson, Booz Allen Hamilton and Managing Change Inc., the latter of which he founded. His academic areas of expertise “included corporate strategy, strategic management, family enterprise, business history and international management.”Professor emeritus of finance Frank Reilly praised Keane’s dedication to his family and his efforts to obtain a new building for the College of Business.“In his personal life, Jack was a fabulous family person who was an incredible husband and loving father,” Reilly said in the release. “During his professional career as the dean, he was devoted to the construction of a new building that enhanced the teaching environment for a rapidly growing student body and attracted outstanding faculty from nationally renowned universities. Clearly, this building has contributed to our growth in prestige among major business schools, and for that we will be forever grateful.”Keane is survived by his wife, Rosemarie, as well as his children John W. Keane, Janmarie Keane Schnabel and Sharon Keane.A visitation will occur from 1 – 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday at South Bend’s Kaniewski Funeral Home. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place the same afternoon at 3:30 p.m. in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on campus. Keane will then be buried in Notre Dame’s Cedar Grove cemetery.Tags: Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Fr. Edward Malloy, mendoza college of business
