Once owned by Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis, this two-story residence built on its rock and roll past to join the most notable modern homes of the Hollywood Hills. A recent renovation transformed it from a mish-mash of architectural styles into a light-filled hillside home that captures enormous views of the nearby Hollywood sign.Save this picture!© Marc Angeles – Unlimited Style PhotographySave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Marc Angeles – Unlimited Style PhotographySave this picture!Second floor planThe home had previously undergone multiple owners and renovations, giving it a mostly Southern California Mediterranean look with a Spanish tile roof and tiny windows. AUX Architecture, led by Brian Wickersham, worked within a budget to produce an impactful and transformative design without structurally changing the home’s rooflines. The main focus was on opening the house up to the Hollywood sign view and emphasizing indoor-outdoor living with lighter and brighter spaces. AUX’s design used a strong contrast between a black exterior and a bright white, museum-quality interior. The home features glass walls (Fleetwood), upgraded cabinets and closets (Poliform), and installed luxury fixtures (Porcelanosa). The result is a completely new look for a home that anchors one of Los Angeles’ most desirable streets.Save this picture!© Marc Angeles – Unlimited Style PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessRem Koolhaas on Identity and Conformity in the Digital CityArchitecture NewsSOM Receives Planning Permission for Angular Skyscraper in City of LondonArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897843/hollyridge-residence-aux-architecture Clipboard Photographs Photographs: Marc Angeles – Unlimited Style Photography Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Structural Engineer: Architects: AUX Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Hollyridge Residence / AUX Architecture JHK Contractors ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/897843/hollyridge-residence-aux-architecture Clipboard Area: 2849 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAUX ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsLos AngelesUnited StatesPublished on July 10, 2018Cite: “Hollyridge Residence / AUX Architecture” 10 Jul 2018.

Its managing editor, Mohamed D. Koroma, was banned from any “editorial function” in any newspaper in the country. In March, the IMC had already ordered the paper to close for two months. Koroma responded that he would challenge the legality of the ban and continue bringing out the paper. He was criticised for having published an article headed “Kabbah stinks in dubious deal again,” in which he pointed to the corruption of President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah’s son, protected by his father.At the end of August, the IMC refused an operating licence to West Africa Democracy Radio (WADR) for reasons of “national security” and “public safety.” The station wanted to broadcast on short-wave nationwide and in other countries of the Mano River Union (Liberia and Guinea). The IMC said Sierra Leone had been destabilised in the past by groups based in these two countries.

Research by the Institute for Employment Studies reveals a significanttake-up rate, with 2,000 employers and 10,000 staff signed up across the UK. The £170m pilots, jointly developed by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC),the Department for Education and Skills and HM Treasury, have been under way insix areas across the country since September 2002, and have recently beenextended to operate in an additional six areas, starting this summer. The study shows that employers believe the pilots are providing employeeswith skills that are important for their businesses (96 per cent), and thatthey are also improving productivity (82 per cent). Chairman of the LSC, Bryan Sanderson said the employers – which have neverpreviously engaged in the development of their workforces – are now trainingtheir low-skilled employees through the ETPs. www.lsc.gov.uk Related posts:No related photos.

September 16, 2018 /Sports News – National Serena Williams denies cheating, points to double standard in 1st interview since US Open defeat Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJulian Finney/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Serena Williams maintained in her first television interview since her stunning upset at the U.S. Open last week that she did not cheat — and further blasted what she sees as the double standard between male and female tennis players.The tennis legend and 23-time Grand Slam champ was accused of receiving coaching tips from the stands — a code violation — during the U.S. Open women’s final last Sunday.While she disputed the ruling, her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, later acknowledged that he was trying to send her a signal.“He said he made a motion,” Williams told the Australian television program, “The Project,” of the incident, according to a preview clip released Sunday.“I don’t understand what he was talking about,” she added. “We’ve never had signals.”On the court, Williams fought back against the chair umpire Carlos Ramos’ call, and in a news conference after the match, blasted his ruling as “sexist.”In her interview with “The Project,” she also doubled down on what she calls the double standard in tennis between male and female players.“I just don’t understand,” Williams said. “If you’re female you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do.”Williams lost the final to Naomi Osaka, though the Japanese tennis star’s historic victory appeared to be overshadowed by the controversy.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

FitFinder founder Rich Martell has pulled the plug on his website, after facing disciplinary action from UCL, who have accused him of “bringing the university into disrepute”.Since its launch on 24 April 2010, FitFinder has received over five million hits from students across 50 different universities. But now Martell, the 21 year old creator of the site, has come under pressure from University authorities to take the site down for good.Martell revealed that UCL had summoned him multiple times for meetings with “very senior members of the University”. Martell was fined £300, the maximum allowed under UCL rules. University bosses told him that “we want you to take the fine now” and that the university would “take disciplinary action” if he did not cooperate with the university discipline.“My degree could be put in doubt if the site remains up” said the worried computer scientist. “This could be taken to a disciplinary hearing – if it is, then my degree is withheld until the result of that hearing. A punishment such has expulsion would not be out of the question”When Cherwell asked Martell which UCL don was threatening him he answered “I really don’t want to wind them up further by them knowing I’ve given their name.”Cherwell has seen a letter sent to Mr Martell by Ruth Siddall, UCL’s Dean for Students.It reads “A potential charge UCL can bring against you is ‘bringing the College into disrepute’ by setting up this website…it could be taken as inciting internet stalking and sexual harrassment…There is very strong feeling from senior colleagues here at UCL and also in the complaint from LSE that we should take action against you… Richard – do you have a lawyer? If not I suggest that you get one!”Martell said that he has been left penniless by the fine and unable to afford legal advice of his own, forcing him to take the site down.UCL’s disciplinary code states “Misconduct which may be the subject of disciplinary procedures under this Code is defined as…behaviour which brings UCL into disrepute.” Martell wrote on theFitfinder.co.uk about the “increasing pressure to take the website offline by Universities”. Speaking to Cherwell, he said “I think the main reason UCL were taking action was because they received complaints from other universities such as LSE.”Last week the London School of Economics told The Times: “We’re against the site and we’ve asked people not to use it. First of all we had some complaints from students who found it insulting and secondly if you’re in the library you’re there to study.”UCL’s Press Office said in a statement that “UCL does not approve of or condone this site” and admitted that the Dean of Students took “disciplinary action against the student for bringing the college into disrepute”. UCL said, “We gave him a fine and that was the end of the matter.”A UCL spokesman said that an academic hearing was discussed internally but it was concluded that this would be “heavy handed” and decided not to take it further. He added that there was “no question” that Mr Martell’s degree would be withheld.Martell assured Cherwell readers that “When I’m sure my degree is safe in my hand, then what we’re going to do is improve the site…we will be coming back with a more developed website as soon as possible. We are also looking to bring FitFinder to people via apps on mobile devices and across music festivals over the summer.”Protest against the loss of Fitfinder has been coordinated online, where one petition gained over 3000 signatures in the first 24 hours.A Facebook group set up by Scott Bryan of York University defended the site, saying that the “great majority of messages are friendly jokes and compliments…if it does look a little bit crude sometimes it because we are young and us young people are sexually frustrated.”Oxford students’ reactions to the loss of the website were mixed. Some were outraged, seeing UCL’s approach as draconian, and condemned what they saw as the university’s vendetta against one of its own students. History student Greg Manuel said that UCL were “unreasonable to ask [Martell] to close the site as it just opens the way for [other companies] to do the same thing.”But not all comments have been so supportive. One poster on Fitfinder’s Facebook page condemned Mr Martell’s decision as cowardly. Oliver Warren said “YOU have caved in to their pressure. Getting people to waste their time filling out surveys is ridiculous and unnecessary…just re-open the site…get some balls – try looking to the pirate bay for inspiration if you really lack a spine.”Oxford Women in Politics president Krisztina Csortea thought the site should stay. She said “I haven’t noticed any increase in misogyny since the appearance of Fitfinder. As far as I am aware, it mentioned both men and women, and I don’t think it had significantly more adverse consequences than gossip columns or ‘fit’ contests.”Other students were concerned about how they would while away long library hours without the site. One Exeter lawyer concluded that “Not only is FitFinder a laugh and a light hearted way to break up revision, practically speaking it’s also effectively a sat-nav for clunge.”FitFinder courted controversy from its opening. One week after launching, the Joint Academic network, the UK’s education and research network, blocked FitFinder from UK university networks over the perceived level of distraction offered by the site. However, the ban was lifted within 24 hours following floods of complaints from students.
people who are on the shielded patient list and members of their household all school year groups up to year 7 people aged over 65, pregnant women, and those with some pre-existing conditions including at-risk under 2s The most comprehensive flu vaccination programme in the UK’s history has been announced by the government today (Friday 24 July).A significant new group will be eligible for the free flu vaccine as people aged 50 to 64 will be invited later in the season for a vaccination.As part of an unprecedented drive, a free flu vaccine will be available to: Once vaccination of the most ‘at-risk’ groups is well underway, the department will work with clinicians to decide when to open the programme to invite people aged 50 to 64, with further details to be announced. The NHS will contact people directly, including information about where to go to get the vaccine.The expanded flu vaccination programme is part of plans to ready the NHS – both for the risk of a second peak of coronavirus cases, and to relieve winter pressures on A&E and emergency care.Increased vaccinations will help to reduce pressure on the NHS this winter by preventing flu-sickness which can cause hospitalisation and even death.This announcement comes alongside the £3 billion for the NHS announced by the Prime Minister earlier this month to relieve winter pressures on A&E and emergency care in case of a second spike in infections.Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: The flu vaccine is the best defence we have against what can be a serious and even deadly illness. This winter, more people than ever will be offered a free flu vaccine. We are urging anyone who is eligible to take up the offer of vaccination. By getting the jab, you can help protect yourself, your family and the NHS – it will help save lives. The flu can be a serious disease, especially for vulnerable people or those with underlying health conditions.Eligible groups are urged to get their free vaccine every year. However with COVID-19 still in circulation, this year’s campaign will be particularly vital to protect the most vulnerable and reduce the number of people needing flu treatment from the NHS.Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Whitty said: Expanded flu vaccination programme to protect vulnerable people and support the NHS Free vaccine to be made available for people aged 50 to 64 later in the year Households of those on the shielded patient list eligible for free flu vaccination and school programme expanded to the first year of secondary schools for the first time It’s mission critical that we pull out all the stops to get ready for winter, and the Prime Minister has already announced £3 billion to protect the NHS. We are now taking another important step to help protect the wider public by giving the flu vaccination to more people than ever before. This will be the biggest flu vaccination programme in history, and will help protect our NHS as we head into winter. If you are eligible for a free vaccine, whether it’s for the first time or because you usually receive one, then I would urge you to get it, not just to protect yourself, but to protect the NHS and your loved ones, from flu. Getting a free NHS flu vaccination is a quick and simple way that people can help to save lives and reduce pressure on our hardworking frontline staff this winter. GPs, nurses, community pharmacists and others will be going to great lengths this year to give this vital protection to millions more people in a safe and convenient way, so when the time comes I would urge everyone invited for a flu vaccination to get it as soon as possible. Seasonal flu is an illness that can be spread by children among themselves and to adults. Last year, the flu programme was expanded to include all primary school aged children for the first time, and this year teams will be visiting secondary schools to vaccinate children in year 7. This will help to contain the spread of this year’s seasonal flu and not only protect children but also vulnerable adults they may be in contact with.Dr Vanessa Saliba, Head of Flu at PHE said: Dr Nikki Kanani, GP and NHS medical director for primary care, said: Flu can have serious consequences and vulnerable people can die of it. Having the vaccine protects you, and helps reduce transmission to others. This winter more than ever, with COVID-19 still circulating, we need to help reduce all avoidable risks. Vaccinating more people will help reduce flu transmission and stop people becoming ill. All frontline health and social care workers will also be urged to get their free vaccine to protect themselves and their patients or residents from the flu.The announcement of the flu vaccination programme expansion is part of the government’s plan to support the NHS and protect the public this winter.The funding, which is available immediately, will allow the NHS to continue using additional private hospital capacity and maintain the Nightingale hospitals until the end of March.This will provide additional capacity for COVID-19 patients should it be needed, and allow the NHS to carry out routine treatments and procedures.Background informationPHE’s annual flu report quotes the total number vaccinated in 2019 to 2020 was 15,344,033. This covers over 65, those in clinical at risk groups, pregnant women, children aged 2 to 3, all primary school aged children, and healthcare workers.
