Among the increasing number of houses planned on small plots of land, this is out of the ordinary in shade and size, A 20-minute train ride from downtown Tokyo, 15-minuite walk from the station. It is a long, narrow trapezoid with a lower base of 3.2m as the frontage, height of 29.3m as the depth, and upper base of 0.7m at the very end of the site. Moreover, there is a local ordinance requiring a 0.5-meter set-back of external walls from the adjacent land. Conditions are extremely tough. From the moment Atelier Tekuto had looked through the site’s situation, Atelier Tekuto organized a collaboration system consisting of the client, design, structure, construction and maker, then started off planning.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemFaucetsDornbrachtBathroom Fittings – TARADuring the initial stage of design, it was agreed on: taking advantage of the site characteristic by ensuring a maximum length of the building; providing a space for fun and structural reinforcement to the building by introducing a slope inside; making the best use of underground space; and turning the entire building into a skin. The over-ground section features skin-like external walls with added transparency letting sunlight permeate the entire building. The floor material is expanded metal letting sunlight fall deeper underground, in the attempt to deviate from the floor’s of determinacy function. Save this picture!© Makoto YoshidaSince the area below ground is beyond the application of the 0.5m rule, major living spaces were buried underground, presenting a need for further permeability. More specifically, the conventional earth retaining work using concrete was simplified into a plain assemblage of 8 mm-thick steel plates with anticorrosive, heat-insulation and waterproof treatments. This method would not only reduces cost but also ensure an extra 0.5 m to the usual working width.

Every effort is being made to materialize this saying to turn this leftover plot of land into a place of living comfort.Save this picture!© Makoto YoshidaProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: iGuzzini Illuminazione Spain Headquarters / MiAS ArquitectesArticlesArchitectural Lighting: Designing with Light and Space / Hervé Descottes with Cecili…Articles Share Houses Lucky Drops / Atelier TekutoSave this projectSaveLucky Drops / Atelier Tekuto CopyHouses•世田谷区, Japan Save this picture!© Makoto Yoshida+ 16 Sharelast_img read more

Secondhand marijuana smoke more dangerous than tobacco – study

first_imgRT America 29 July 2016Family First Comment: The more we learn about marijuana, the more we realise why it’s a public health risk! “There is widespread belief that, unlike tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke is benign,” Springer said. “We in public health have been telling the public to avoid secondhand tobacco smoke for years. But we don’t tell them to avoid secondhand marijuana smoke, because until now we haven’t had evidence that it can be harmful.”With an increasing number of states legalizing medicinal and recreational marijuana, a new study has found that exposure to secondhand marijuana smoke is more damaging to blood vessels than breathing secondhand tobacco smoke.The study revealed that the blood flow in the arteries of rats that had inhaled secondhand marijuana smoke for one minute was less efficient for at least 90 minutes. Under a similar test for secondhand tobacco smoke, blood vessel impairment lasted only 30 minutes.“While the effect is temporary for both cigarette and marijuana smoke, these temporary problems can turn into long-term problems if exposures occur often enough and may increase the chances of developing hardened and clogged arteries,” said Matthew Springer, PhD, the study’s senior author and a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco’s Division of Cardiology, in a released statement.Researchers also found that merely burning the plant material appears to cause impaired blood vessels, unlike chemicals like nicotine and tetrahydrocannabinol.Researchers say the arteries of rats and humans are similar in how they respond to secondhand tobacco smoke.The study on the health consequences of exposure to secondhand smoke from cannabis comes as three more states – California, Maine and Nevada – are due to vote on ballot initiatives on whether to legalize recreational marijuana this November.READ MORE: https://www.rt.com/usa/353818-secondhand-marijuana-smoke-tobacco-study/last_img read more

Their statistics will forever live in our record books, but their play and sacrifice is what our fans will always remember.

McNair was selected by the then-Houston Oilers with the third overall pick of the 1995 draft and amassed the most wins of any quarterback in the team’s history over his 11-year career. He also had a brief stint with the Ravens before retiring in 2008. The All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection was shot to death in Nashville in July 2009 at the age of 36.George, 45, was the 14th overall pick out of Ohio State the following year after winning the Heisman Trophy and went on to become the franchise’s all-time leader in career rushing yards. The All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl selection is also the only running back in NFL history to have 300 or more carries for eight straight seasons. George retired in 2004 after spending the final season of his career with the Cowboys.last_img read more
