Monday 7 February 2011 9:21 pm BRITISH Sky Broadcasting has made “excess profits” on its Sky Movies service, according to the Competition Commission. The company, which is the subject of a takeover bid from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, has an exclusive deal with the six big Hollywood studios and may now be forced to lower its wholesale price to other broadcasters who want to show its ten film channels. The commission found Sky Movies had consistently earned excess profits that were disproportionate to the risks it took early on in the deals.

This home is on a plot of 3,000sqm with a height of 25m, in a Castellón neighborhood that is only 50% constructed. Looking at the plot, we see that it reflectsits seventeenth century history, which is when overpopulation forced the cultivation of all types of terrain, including those that are very steep, through a system of small terraces with walls made of local rock. The later abandonment allowed the growth of trees, mainly pine and carob. Our position towards the plot was that of absolute respect, so the construction method should also respect the land, thus us opting for a prefabricated building system that is deposited on the land practically without touching it, without cutting down trees, and taking advantage of existing terrace/garden areas, which were rebuilt in the damaged areas, with the same stone and same technique. Part of the house – garage and auxiliary areas – is buried, allowing us to re-introduce native vegetation on the natural terrain. This also allows the plot to be accessedon the upper levelby forklift from a ramp that enters the garage located 13ml under the access level that communicates with both of the home’s levels.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatAll of this is hidden from view. For construction, in trying to lessen the impact on the ground, we chose a metal structure fabricated in a workshop and transported to the site in large pieces that could be assembled on 3 metal, V-shaped pillars. An existing stone terrace supports the back part of the structure.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatThis home looks as though suspended or in flight due to the dry construction materials used. The façade, resulting in various layers, is finished on the outside with corrugated sheet metal, specially designed to prevent glare and heat, thanks to the shadows caused by the folds. The great front opening is oriented towards magnificent views, and allows adequate sunlight in during the winter, but also protects from the sun in the summer. The solar energy panels with heat pipe technology on the roof allow the home to guarantee that at almost any moment, there will always be hot water available for both domestic use and for under-floor heating. Air currents cross the patio, taking advantage of the different orientations, which permits reductions in air conditioning consumption, which, in any case, has been installed.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatThe intermediate courtyard allows access under the house, and at the same time, allows all the rooms to face the sun and the views. The whole house revolves around this courtyard. This is a house with a courtyard, but with different connotations since each room in the house can be seen from the courtyard’s central location, as well as the surrounding landscape, and since the courtyard is surrounded on four sides by the house, but is not enclosed by it due to the slope of the plot. In the large front area, which houses the kitchen, living room and master bedroom, the construction system is evident since the pillars and roof structure, formed by metal brackets supporting a corrugated sheet over which the roof is built, can be seen.Save this picture!© Joan GuillamatProject gallerySee allShow lessmodeLab Data LabArticlesAIA California Council’s Residential Design Awards 2012Articles Share Houses CopyHouses•Borriol, Spain BF House / OAB + ADISave this projectSaveBF House / OAB + ADI Spain ArchDaily Photographs Architects: ADI, OAB Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeOABOfficeFollowADIOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasBorriolHouses3D ModelingSpainPublished on September 13, 2012Cite: “BF House / OAB + ADI” 13 Sep 2012.

printFollowing last week’s lockdown, safety was at the front of many people’s minds, but for one man, campus safety is always at the front of his mind.Adrian Andrews, assistant vice chancellor for public safety, came to TCU this semester and said it’s already been an “amazing” seven weeks.“I get a chance to work with outstandingly brilliant people who are passionate about what they do and protecting the young people on this campus,” Andrews said. “I really, really enjoy it.”Andrews formally served in the secret service as a special agent working both in the Oklahoma office and on campaign protection detail for different candidates.“The secret service has prepared me immensely to take on the challenges of the job,” Andrews said. “I tell my friends that I used to travel the world protecting very important people who are famous, now I travel to Fort Worth protect very important people who are not so famous- not yet.”“You have to understand that TCU was doing a great job at safety before Adrian Andrews got here,” Andrews said.Board of Trustees Chairman Mark Johnson said that the board is focused on campus security and in addition to Andrews, TCU recently hired four temporary police officers. TCU is now maintaining a minimum of four officers per shift, previously three officers per shift, and the temporary officers are helping to fill those needs.“We want to make sure we keep students safe and do what we need to do,” Johnson said. “Your chancellor is more concerned about security than anything else.” As for future plans, Andrews said he wants to look at the structure and response protocols for people on campus. “I want to bring some unification,” Andrews said. “I think that it’s very simple that if people know what they are supposed to do in a time of crisis, they will do that and keep themselves safe.”To hear more about Andrews plans for campus safety, as well as his thoughts on the lessons learned from last week’s lockdown, check out the full interview below.

Allergies, colds and the flu are being felt across campus. “I actually have noticed an increase in illnesses among my friends and residents as compared to other semesters,” said Olivia Cartwright, a junior theatre major and a resident assistant in Tom Brown/Pete Wright apartments. “I had a really bad cold, and one of my residents had the flu a few weeks ago.”Texas is in the midstof flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control. 2018-2019 Weekly Influenza Season chart showing Texas at a high ILI (Influenza-Like Illness) Activity Level. Photo courtesy: CDCThe TCU Health Clinic reported 21 confirmed cases of the flu since the beginning of the spring semester, said Dr. Jane Torgerson, medical director of the TCU Health Clinic. Last week was the first time they have seen a major increase in confirmed flu cases, she said. “When students arecoming back in mid-January, it’s when the flu populates, and we’re seeing a lotof flu now,” said Torgerson. Torgerson said there’s a simple way to avoid the flu: Get a flu shot. “I think 100 percent of the students at TCU who have gotten the flu have not had the vaccination,” Torgerson said. “I’m not saying you can’t get the flu if you get the shot, but the shot seems to be a good match this year.”Mark Dennis, an associate professor focused on east Asian religions, offered up a unique way students can use to stay healthy. “Richard Davidson, aneuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin, has started researching whatmeditation, mindfulness, yoga and these kinds of mind body practices do for thebody,” Dennis said. “These practices can help with depression, anxiety, ADHD,and the immune system.” Meditation helps the immune system because it lowers stress levels, and higher stress levels have been shown to negatively impact a person’s immune system, Dennis said. Flu season in Texas spans from now until March, so students need to be careful about spreading germs.“When something likethe flu is going around, even simple things like showing someone your phone andthem taking it can spread germs,” Torgerson said. “You should really avoidthings like that.” There are alsoprecautions that professors and TCU staff can take to avoid spreading cold andflu to their students.

Photo courtesy: Jake Hook Geoff Craig, KTCUco-manager, has had plenty of experience with trying to keep himself and his studentemployees from getting sick.“Surprisingly, wehaven’t seen many illnesses so far at the radio station, but we have done areally good job of disinfecting the station,” Craig said. “We use Lysol a lot.We have boards that everyone is touching on and microphones that everyone isbreathing and coughing on, so we have to disinfect at least once a week.”As the semester continues and different springtime illnesses spread, Torgerson wants to give students few words of advice on how to avoid the springtime illnesses to which many students fall victim. “Sleep is huge. Ifpeople get less than 6 or 7 hours, they get colds much more frequently,”Torgerson said. ““If you know you have allergies, really, really stay on yourmedicine, because if your allergies get really bad it is so much easier to getsick on top of that.” The TCU Health Centeris open Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.To make an appointment,visit the health center or call 817-257-7940.

It is quite an anomaly that it is entirely legal to criticise the food, clothes, and music elements of any culture, and most people would not dream of a law or even of a social convention not to criticise them, but the law and indeed the Constitution of Ireland make criticism of the religious element of a culture a crime.”The group acknowledges that it is “a delicate matter” for teachers to deal with subjects that may be sensitive to pupils, but that schools “certainly should not teach children to have a general respect for any culture or any aspect of culture”.The MWH added that schools and adults should teach children to have respect for others, and to use diplomacy in deciding when to criticise an element of a culture, “but not to set a rule to always avoid criticising any particular part of culture, including religion”.
