This family house in the mountain area of Oppdal is placed on the upper part of a sloped site, offering great views towards the south. An annex is placed on the lower part of the plot with a courtyard formed between the two. Both buildings are timber log structures placed on an elevated base wall of concrete. This foundation wall is elevated in order to handle the height differences in the surrounding terrain. Decks and roof structures are made of massive wood.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe buildings combine traditional vernacular log techniques with a modern architectonic expression. This comes to show by using large glass surfaces mounted between the knots of the log structure. Interplay between open glass-framed parts and the log structure arises – creating varied spaces. The static differences between large sheets of glass, and the moisture relative timber construction, has been a challenge regarding technical detailing, resulting in flexible window fixings and adjustable steel columns.Save this picture!SectionThe cold part of the annex is built in another traditional technique. Remains of the timber material is used as ”bricks” set in mortar, which is possible because of the dry climate at the site. The main shape of the two houses has a clear reference to the formal language of the traditional building style, both in terms of the principal of adding volumes length vice in the sloping terrain, and the angle of the roof.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleLog construction is very favorable in a cradle-to-cradle perspective:Log construction has very low energy consumption in the production phase, it is a large CO2 storage during use, and can very easily be reused, recycled or be used as a heating source after use. For this reason, log structure has exemptions in energy codes in many countries, including Norway.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleThe Log house is constructed of logs which is sustainable due to quick assembly and local “short travelled” materials and builders. The in-door climate is good due to natural ventilation and low emitting treatment of wooden surfaces. Heating is based upon thermal energy, heat pump and wood burning stoves.Save this picture!DetailJVA thinks it is necessary to explore the traditional technique and possibilities of log building in a contemporary way.Save this picture!© Nils Petter DaleProject gallerySee allShow lessSkaterhall / Herrmann + Bosch ArchitektenSelected ProjectsNam Dam Homestay and Community House / 1+1>2 ArchitectsSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeJVAOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOppdalNorwayPublished on December 17, 2015Cite: “Log House / JVA” 17 Dec 2015.

A Bowl Review: With bowl season nearing, Frogs look to add to rich history

first_imgDean Strakahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dean-straka/ Twitter Men’s tennis clinches consecutive Big 12 titles with win over No. 4 Baylor printThis story is from this semester’s second edition of IMAGE Magazine, published this week and available at news stands around campus.With the 2015 college football season winding down, bowl season is already on the horizon. For the Horned Frogs, the postseason is a time of rich history for the program.The Horned Frogs played their first bowl game back in the 1920 season in the now defunct Fort Worth Classic Bowl. The team lost a lopsided 63-7 affair to Centre College, but it was just one of 30 bowl appearances for the Frogs.The frequency of bowl appearances for the Frogs was sporadic in the 20th century. Between 1920 and 1998 TCU appeared in 15 bowl games. It was in 1998 that the Frogs found their groove.That season, the Frogs defeated USC 28-19 in the Sun Bowl. It was a signature win for a non-power five team over one of the most storied programs in the nation, and since then the Frogs have appeared in a bowl game in all but two years, 2004 and 2013.In other words, TCU has made the cut 15 times in the past 17 seasons. Those 15 bowl appearances match the same amount that the Frogs played in the 68-year period prior to 1998.Not only have the Frogs been a mainstay in bowl games in recent history, but TCU can boast that they’ve played in each of the “New Year’s Six” bowl games – the most prestigious bowls that are used in the playoff rotation.The first appearance in any of these six bowl games for the Frogs came back in 1935, when the Frogs defeated LSU in the Sugar Bowl by the low score of 3-2. That was only the second bowl game the Frogs had ever played in.It was the first of two appearances for the Frogs in the Sugar Bowl, as they would return in 1938 to defeat Carnegie Mellon 15-7.After the initial Sugar Bowl appearance, the Frogs built upon their resume in 1936, when they defeated Marquette in the Cotton Bowl.It was the first of six appearances the Frogs made in the Cotton Bowl, the most of a single bowl in program history. However, they haven’t played in the Cotton Bowl since 1958.TCU failed to reach a bowl game in 1939 and 1940, but in 1941 they made it to the Orange Bowl only to lose to Georgia 40-26. By 1944, each of the past five bowl games the Frogs had appeared in was a “New Year’s Six” bowl.Following the Cotton Bowl in the 1958 season, it would be 51 years until the Frogs would play in a “New Year’s Six” bowl. In the 2009 season, the Frogs were invited to play in the Fiesta Bowl after an undefeated regular season in the Mountain West Conference. The Frogs would end up losing a heart-breaker, however, falling to Boise State 17-16.The following season, the 2010 season, would be the year that everything came back together.After posting yet another undefeated regular season in the Mountain West, the Frogs once again got the nod to play in a “New Year’s Six” bowl. With Oregon in the national championship, this time the Frogs were sent to Pasadena, California for the “grand daddy of them all” – the Rose Bowl.In arguably one of the most important victories in the history of TCU Football, the Horned Frogs pulled out a come-from-behind victory, defeating Wisconsin 21-19. It was this win that got TCU back on the national stage, and ultimately helped propel them to the Big 12 Conference.TCU safety Michael Downing holds part of the Peach Bowl trophy after the second half of the Peach Bowl NCAA football game against Mississippi, Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014, in Atlanta. TCU won 42-3. (AP Photo/David Goldman)After falling to Michigan State on a last second field goal in the 2012 Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl and then missing the bowl season in 2013 after a 4-8 record, the Frogs managed to check off that final box in 2014 when they played in the sixth “New Year’s Six” bowl game; the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.After being left out of the inaugural College Football Playoff, TCU crushed Ole Miss 42-3 in a win that served as a statement to the playoff committee and helped the Frogs to a No. 2 ranking this preseason.With the Frogs bowl eligible once again this season, TCU will add another chapter to its postseason history.

The ministry, which has censored eight publications over the past year, banned the printing of the 13 January issue of Sahafa under article 11 of the 1991 press law that allows censorship of material that “harms the reputation of the state.” This can be done without having to give any reason.Editor Mohammed Mahmud Ould Bacar said the report on the opposition abroad included news about the French-based underground Conscience et Résistance group. Bacar, a member of the national committee for observance of journalistic ethics, was arrested by plainclothes police last 19 September at Nouakchott airport and questioned about his alleged links with Conscience et Résistance.

A bench headed by Chairperson, Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel took note of the instances of irreversible damage to the “riverine ecology” caused due to the construction of the College and other permanent constructions and directed the Committee to consider the ill effects as well as to lay down adequate norms in ensuring that the construction takes place in accordance with the law. The Joint Committee will comprise of the representatives from the following: Central Water Commission (CWC)Nominees of Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate ChangeCentral Pollution Control BoardNational Institute of Hydrology, RoorkeeState Pollution Control Board BACKGROUND NGT in an earlier order dated 16.03.2020 sought a report from a Committee comprising of representatives of the State Water Department on the issue of illegal construction activities on Mahanadi river. These activities comprised of construction of Hanuman Temple, graveyard, market complex etc. in view of the same, the Committee filed a joint inspection report on 24.07.2020 wherein it observed that the construction of temple and other establishments in ‘No Development Zone’ and ‘Active Flood Plain Area’ is illegal and its construction should not be allowed by the Administration. The report also suggested that the floodplain area falls under a prohibited activity zone as it comprises of the most important component of river ecosystem and also act as filter improving water quality providing habitat to wildlife. When the matter came up for consideration before the NGT on 20.08.2020, it was found during the hearing that such constructions and illegal encroachments might be taking place at other floodplain locations of Mahanadi river which included the proposed construction of SCB Medial College. A report was then filed by the Committee on 11.12.2020 where it was found that some of the areas were encroached by slum dwellers and other shopkeepers. The applicant in the case had then filed a response to the report indicating the potential damages done to the river ecology of Mahanad and Kathjodi rivers due to the proposed construction projects in their floodplain zones. The applicant in the response has stated that the said Medical College will reclaim 25 acres of land from the Mahanadi River and that the official twitter handles of District Administration show that it had already began the beautification of the Riverfront in the name of ‘BARFI Project’ wherein the sand which is being dredged from the river was filled in the river area close to embankment which in turn led to the elevation in height of the riverbed. The applicant mentioned that the continuous incidents of encroachment in the form of construction of temples, parking areas, markets and other OTDC river infrastructure projects had led to the elevation of river bed due to the dumping of debris and solid waste into the river. The bench while noting the response filed by the applicant said that “The response filed by the applicant shows that new campus of SCB medical college is proposed on 25 acres of land reclaimed from the river. The Mahanadi River Front project involves change of nature of the river land. Encroachment of Kathajodi and Mahanadi rivers and constructions in floodplain area may adversely affect the riverine ecology.” OBSERVATIONS OF THE BENCH The bench observed that due to the lack of any central legislation to regulate the prohibition of construction activities on river floodplains, there is an urgent requirement to take precautionary measures to ensure the safety of river ecology. The bench also took note of the model bill of 1975 circulated by the Ministry of Water Resources which could never be formulated into a law. The Bench however observed the legislations of other Indian States which regulate the construction activities on the floodplains including the states of Maharashtra, Manipur and Uttarakhand. The bench relied on the observations of the Apex Court in the case of Mantri Techzone Pvt. Ltd. vs. Forward Foundation & Ors. (2019) wherein restrictions were imposed in the construction activities of Revised Master Plan of Banglore in catchment areas of the lakes. It also relied on the case of M.C. Mehta vs. Union of India & Ors (2017) wherein the NGT was of the view that “Floodplains play significant role in maintaining the bio-diversity and aquatic life of the river. It’s significance cannot be overlooked, in terms of environment and ecology.” It was observed that even if there is an absence of any proper legislative and administrative measure by the State of Odisha on the subject, the NGT is obligated to give effect to the precautionary principle in environment law under sec. 20 of NGT Act, 2010. The bench also took note of some articles of 2018 wherein the incidents of damage to the floodplains harming the riverine ecosystem due to the lack of legislative measures had been published. The bench had also directed the Committee to identify the extent of floodplain zone from the edge of the Mahanadi river and also ordered the CPCB to be the nodal agency for compliance of the order. “The Committee may complete its exercise within four months. The members of the Committee are free to interact by video conferencing or otherwise. If any grievance with regard to violation of environmental norms survives, the applicant will be free to take any further remedies as per law.” The bench ordered. Case Name: Dilip Kumar Samantaray v.
