The increase in population and conversion of villa houses to small apartments caused residential buildings to change to a limited space with certain functions, which often lacks light, view and fresh air. Such conditions can affect not only the morale of the inhabitants, but also the everyday interactions of people with each other.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSave this picture!Volume SchemeSmall house project had an area of 70 square meters, and as a usual case could have been a space as it is said. We tried to break the limits of a small apartment, and any space, instead of having a particular function, becomes a multi-functional space, in addition, all spaces of the complex have light, view and proper ventilation.Considering the limited dimensions of the area, and the limitations of elevation and height, it was tried to separate spaces through designing sub-spaces with different altitudes in each unit instead of using segregated elements such as the wall. This way, through establishing a logical connection between spaces and observing the principle of hierarchy, we witnessed the formation of flexible and multi-functional spaces.  Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSave this picture!Floors plansSave this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiTherefore, a harmonic and warm space with optimum lighting was created. Moving from one space to another is possible through a limited number of stairs; therefore, the sense of motion and dynamism increases. While moving around the space is easy, the sense of tranquility is enhanced.Save this picture!Section AKeeping the unused spaces to a minimum made the inhabitants of the complex experience a variety of spatial qualities. In fact, the whole house space turned into a staircase set in which the difference between the landings is less, and each landing is extended to a usable space, these flights of stairs has a sense of motion and dynamism as well as a sense of tranquility.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiIn addition, growing plants at different levels and unused spaces and creating visual and tactile sense between residents and plants can regain a little sense of a villa house in this small building, which can greatly impact on the morale and cheerfulness of the residents.Save this picture!Section BOur motive to design this building is to create a model for designing high-rise buildings, which not only has a decent quality of life but also has a positive impact on the interactions of individuals in the community.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiProject gallerySee allShow lessDust to Dust: Redesigning Urban Life in Healthy SoilsIdeasBite to Eat / HAO DesignSelected Projects Share Year:  Houses 2016 CopyHouses•Isfahan, Iran ArchDaily Architects: Masih Fazile Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Which headlamp battery is right for you – disposable vs rechargeable

first_imgUtilized for countless activities and jobs, headlamps allow you to clearly and safely perform your task in the dark while keeping your hands available for the real work. To ensure optimal performance from your headlamp, it’s important to use a power source that best suits your objective–disposable or rechargeable. The superiority of one over the other is only relative to the situation at hand. Here are several points to ponder when considering either power source.BrightnessRechargeable batteries, coupled with specialized electronics, can provide CONSTANT LIGHTING and REACTIVE LIGHTING performance. CONSTANT LIGHTING allows the brightness to stay fairly consistent over the entire rated burn time. REACTIVE LIGHTING automatically adjusts the brightness when the headlamp detects the need for more or less light.Disposable batteries, with the lack of specialized electronics, provide STANDARD LIGHTING performance–the brightness gradually decreases as the batteries deplete. Burn TimeDisposable batteries are known to last longer while its energy output gradually decreases over time, making it so that your light will slowly get dimmer over time.Rechargeable batteries tend to have shorter burn times with a more consistent energy output until depletion, providing a stable amount of light until it abruptly goes out.AvailabilityDisposable batteries are quick and easy to replace; available for purchase almost anywhere. Rechargeable batteries aren’t always replaceable, but when they are, they can be hard to find or are only available on the manufacturer’s website. Petzl recommendation:Buy spare rechargeable batteries for each rechargeable headlamp you ownEase of UseDisposable batteries can be swapped out for fresh ones anywhere. Rechargeable batteries need a power source and a few hours to recharge.Maximum PerformanceDisposable batteries have to be replaced often, before they are depleted, in order to frequently operate a headlamp at max power. Rechargeable batteries are easily recharged before each use to frequently operate a headlamp at max power. WasteDisposable batteries are not reusable after a complete discharge and are thrown away, creating waste. Rechargeable batteries are reusable and limit waste.Self-dischargeDisposable batteries work even after a long period of non-use, making them very reliable. Rechargeable batteries slowly lose their charge while not in use and may become fully discharged over time. Petzl recommendation:Do not store rechargeable batteries fully dischargedRecharge stored batteries every 3 monthsCold WeatherDisposable batteries lose a lot of their charge in cold weather. Rechargeable batteries, specifically lithium-ion, are better at holding their charge in cold weather. Petzl recommendation:Store batteries in warm environments before using them in very cold environmentsDuring cold weather activities, keep batteries close to you body for warmthSizeDisposable batteries are normally used in sets of 2-4 to provide more power, resulting in more weight and bulk. Rechargeable batteries can be powerful and compact at the same time, providing a better compromise between power and weight.The VerdictIn conclusion, the deciding factor of choosing one power source over the other is purely based on your needs for performance and use. For frequent and intensive uses, go with a rechargeable battery. For occasional uses, use disposable batteries. For the freedom to switch between both types of batteries, consider a HYBRID CONCEPT headlamp.last_img read more

Changing a few words doesn’t make gay marriage real

first_imgWaikato Times 22 April 2013 – Narelle HensonSame-sex marriage is not, by its very nature, the same as heterosexual marriage. It never will be. No matter how much we fiddle with the law, or censor the use of words like “bride” and “groom”, the fact that homosexual marriage does not tend toward the conception and raising of children will forever set it apart.That is why advocates of real marriage argued against the inclusion of same-sex couples, by law, into the definition of marriage. They understand that marriage plays an astonishingly important role in our society and that role is getting lost in all the mucking around with laws and words.They understand that the great purpose of the institution is to provide a framework in which a family may be created, and the next generation raised.They understand that marriage is not a “right”, just as friendship is not a “right”. Marriage is a responsibility. It is first a responsibility toward the happiness, security and trust of another, and second a responsibility to the happiness, security and trust of a child. In calling marriage a right, the advocates of same-sex marriage have turned it into an individualistic pursuit, because rights make us think about what we deserve. To call it a responsibility reminds us that true marriage is actually about what others deserve from us and, most of all, what our children deserve from us.http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/opinion/8580253/Changing-a-few-words-doesn-t-make-gay-marriage-reallast_img read more
