The village of Mathon has remained remarkably intact without significant alterations to the built fabric. At its heart sits an old wooden barn which has fallen into disrepair. If it were to be demolished it would never be replaced creating a gap in the centre of the village. To preserve both the structure of the barn and its role in the village ensemble it is converted into an alpine loft, a place for work and reflection. The project draws upon examples from far away, most prominently the Japanese house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office HaratoriSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!Courtesy of Office HaratoriSave this picture!Section BLoving the OrdinaryBuildings are more than singular objects; they are part of the urban environment they shape. Like a street, a district, a community. Buildings accommodate the people who use them intensively. Today, tomorrow, every day and every year. That is why we need buildings that stand the test of time. Buildings that stay relevant thanks to their solidity, usability and durability. In that way, they are embedded in our complex, ever changing urban environment. Trends may come and go, but we love the long lasting power of the ordinary. The everyday is here to stay.Save this picture!Courtesy of Office HaratoriSave this picture!Courtesy of Office HaratoriWe Combine Simplicity with SophisticationOur team strongly believes in the elegance of simple solutions to complex problems, without overseeing the context in which we operate. Our thinking and designs always incorporate the environmental, social and cultural dimensions that are related to architecture and city planning. Our interest in longevity and connectivity of buildings asks for a process of careful observation, adjustment and refinement.

Inside the Cockpit of a Jones Beach Air Show Stunt Pilot

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sean Tucker laughs while piloting his single-engine plane more than 200 mph vertically, then letting it “sit” in the clouds before doing a “wing over” down toward the Fire Island beach below.Such maneuvers would leave some feeling queasy, but it’s all in a day’s work for this stunt pilot as he flies upside-down, through loops, and does what’s called a max deflection roll—spinning his tiny red-and-white aircraft like a drill through the sky. And those are just some of his tamest moves.“It’s a pretty cool job,” Tucker tells the Press after taking this reporter on a relatively subdued—only half of his usual 9.5 positive g-forces—practice run this week. “Making designs in the third dimension…that’s what I get to do every single day.”Tucker, the lead pilot for Team Oracle, will perform his Sky Dance routine at the 12th annual Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach, scheduled for 12-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.READ MORE: Inside the Blue Angels 2014 Bethpage Air Show at Jones Beach Practice It’s a show he’s performed hundreds of times, practices daily and never gets old. While he concedes that “it’s the craziest job in the world if you can make a living at it,” he says that doesn’t mean spectators should mistake him for reckless.“It is very risky, but the perception that people have sometimes that I’m crazy is totally opposite what we are,” he says after landing safely at Republic Airport in East Farmingdale. “When we’re throwing the airplane through the sky and front flipping and back flipping and twirling and tumbling to the ground we appear out of control, but we mitigate every risk by training and making sure in every maneuver we have an escape.”It also helps that this aerobatic pilot flies a state-of-the-art, custom-built plane, the Oracle Challenger III. And that he is one of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s 25 Living Legends of Flight. He speaks of his act as less a feat of daredevilry than a highly choreographed blend of athleticism, art and engineering.“The wings become your arms and you become so connected with it, then it becomes intuitive,” he says of his connection to his plane. “Then it’s like your dancing in the sky. You’re a part of the machine.”He hopes his fans, who can catch his show immediately before this year’s headliners, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, will be inspired to reach for the stars by living life as passionately as he does.“Come out and dream with us,” he says. “It’s all about dreams.”last_img read more

That is, the new Agreement agreed to continue the application of the provisions of the Collective Agreement on Hospitality. In the case of employers who have domestic collective agreements, the amount of basic salaries, ie the amount of the salary base and the amount of salary compensation, are determined on the basis of negotiations between the trade union and the employer.center_img In addition, as pointed out by HUP, the parties mutually determine that during the pandemic of the COVID-19 virus and its consequences on the business of the tourism sector, which jeopardized the business in the hospitality and tourism and partially and / or completely disrupted the employer’s business. consequently, due to the impossibility of securing work for the employee according to the concluded employment contract, the employee, for the period when he is not working, according to the decision of the employer is entitled to salary compensation in the amount of at least 50% of his basic salary. If the stated amount would be lower than the minimum wage prescribed by the Regulation on the minimum wage, the worker is entitled to the amount of the minimum wage. The agreement on the entry into force of the Collective Agreement on Hospitality is additionally important for employers due to the possibility of re-using the institute of redistribution for a maximum of 60 hours per week, which cannot be used without a collective agreement.

The Social Council for Tourism has given its support to the Government for everything that has been done so far, and the decision to continue support for workers’ salaries and the reprogramming of the permanent seasonal measure is especially important, which we have jointly appealed to. The tourism sector must be supported in order to bridge the period until the next tourist year, which can be achieved through stronger use of EU funds and funds to help tourism through wage subsidies. As social partners of the Government of the Republic of Croatia, we will continue talks in order to find the necessary solutions and provide support for workers’ salaries with the aim of preserving jobs by the spring of 2021.”Conclude from HUP Association of Hospitality and Tourism.last_img read more
