THE TINY PLACE« So the tiny, a narrow door if ever there was one, opens a world. The particular of a thing can be the sign of a new world, a world which as all the worlds, contains the attributes of the greatness. In La poétique de l’espace, G. BachelardSave this picture!© Benoit BostSave this picture!PlanEverything starts in 2013 with the visit of an empty plot of land in a borough of Reims (France). The future owners wondered about the possible construction of a house on this strange triangular plot of land. It is well orientated, there is enough space to build a 100m2 house with garden and it is little overlooked. Nevertheless, the sharp form of the ground seems difficult to occupy. At the same time, we were looking for a place to build an architecture office, a space to work and study.Save this picture!© Benoit BostWe made the following proposition to the client : using the necessary space to build the house and employing the triangular extremity with the small office building.The program was then established : A house, a small office, an exhibition space open to artists, architects and musicians.We started to work and quickly decided of the external form : A dark and almost blind façade on the street, with concrete base. On the other side very open and ultra luminous living spaces.Save this picture!© Benoit BostHouseThe house is built on the larger part of the site. So a garden can be created on the back side.The northern facade on the street, is almost blind to preserve the intimacy of inhabitants. Living spaces are largely opened to the southern garden. On the ground floor, there is a complete life unit (living room, kitchen, main room with bathroom) and on the first floor a huge mezzanine is connected to a guests room. With large horizontal windows inserted between the 2 slopes of the roof, these spaces have an optimum luminosity.Save this picture!© Benoit BostThe double height of the living room and geometrical lines of the ceiling create a set of intermingling volumes. This space has a small surface but with an impression of greatness.On the mezzanine, a large window offers a picturesque view on the surrounding gardens. Oak parquet floor and stairs bring warm notes to this immaculate decoration. Finally some circular lamps punctuate the different rooms of the house in counterpoint to the ceiling sharp lines. Save this picture!© Ludmilla CervenySmall office buildingThe office building skip into the acute part of the plot of land, abandoned for a long time.With a reduced ground surface it develops on 3 storeys high. Each storey’s got a function : ground floor is the exhibition space, first floor receive the open space office and the second floor is dedicated to meeting room with a small kitchen facilities and terrace. A black metallic stair connect these non divided spaces.Save this picture!© Benoit BostVoluntary bare and raw, working spaces are very luminous and good place for work. Joist floor slabs stay apparent, all ironworks are crude steel. Only walls received a white painting. A dark purple colour is applied on the triple height of the staircase wall. This dusky wall blurs the end of the space, the black steel stairs comes to end in.Finally the terrace ends this architectural promenade leaving pink and yellow shining.Save this picture!SectionLe lieu minusculeLe Lieu Minuscule, which means In french The Tiny Place, is a place dedicated to architecture and contemporary art : an exhibition space and a workspace. It has been inaugurated in September 2015 by Aurore Dudevant and Philippe Zulaica, architects. It takes place on the ground floor of the small building office, conceived to be occupied by an architecture office on the first and second floor.Save this picture!© Benoit BostLe Lieu Minuscule is a project carried and maturated for a long time. Born form fuzzy, crossed and perhaps contradictory desires : to have a working place for professional and personal research; create a place of exposure to present the work of artists and architects sharing commons reflexions; to accommodate musicians and performances in a singular space.Save this picture!© Ludmilla CervenyLe Lieu Minuscule exhibits monographic or thematic exhibitions.

Up-and-coming South African scientist, Brendon Billings, is breathing new life into the field of science and human evolution. (Image: Wilma den Hartigh)MEDIA CONTACTS• Maropeng+27 14 577 9000 Wilma den HartighUp-and-coming South African scientist Brendon Billings is breathing new life into the field of science and human evolution. He is presenting Maropeng’s new Bone Detectives walking tour, which investigates the seven-million-year evolution of Homo sapiens through the many fossils found in the Cradle of Humankind, in Gauteng.Through the tour, the 30-year-old Wits University scientist hopes to provide a new perspective on the field, inspire a love for science, and remind people about South Africa’s rich fossil heritage. And he does this in a fun and accessible way to demystify the subject.“Bones provide clues and make it possible for us to piece together the evolutionary story,” Billings says. “They are the best preserved and we can use them to identify certain structural and behavioural traits, all of which give us a narrative in terms of human evolution.”The tour is suitable for anyone who wants to know more about the science behind palaeoanthropology. Participants have the opportunity to compare different types of hominid bones, helping them to understand the hominoid skeletal anatomy and learn how to identify fossil remains.He says evolution is an ever-changing field, and every fossil that is discovered provides new clues about how evolution took place. “Without the bones we wouldn’t have any evolutionary story to tell.” Hooked on fossilsBillings says he’s fortunate to have been introduced to evolution early on at university – he was set on a career in medicine, but when he didn’t get into the course, he opted for a science degree instead. “I was introduced to the wonderful idea of evolution. I was hooked,” he explains. “Science became my path of using evolutionary principles to understand the world and answer some of these fundamental questions.”His job, he says, is just like putting together a puzzle, which is why he decided to call the Maropeng tour Bone Detectives. It draws on popular television series such as crime drama CSI and US medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. “I noticed that these programmes have generated a lot of interest in medical anthropology and forensics, and decided to build an event around this theme.”Billings has completed his MSc in history of science at Wits, and now he’s working on his thesis on primatology and the evolution of consciousness. He was also recently nominated as a member of the prestigious Council for the Royal Society South Africa, a multi-disciplinary scientific organisation.At the university, Billings assists scientists with their research in disciplines such as palaeoanthropology, forensic anthropology and neuroanatomy. He enjoys telling people about his work and he gives tours of the school to the public.The first thing Billings does when you walk into his office is show you some of Wits University’s extensive fossil collections. He is the curator of all collections at the School of Anatomical Sciences at the Wits Medical School, including the Raymond Dart Collection of Human Skeletons. This collection is one of the largest documented cadaver-derived human skeletal assemblages in the world and the largest in Africa.It was started in the mid-1920s by Dart, an Australian anthropologist known for his involvement in the 1924 discovery of the first fossil found of Australopithecus africanus, an extinct hominid closely related to humans, at Taung in South Africa’s North West Province. His heroThroughout his years as a student, and even now, many top scientists encouraged him to follow his dreams, but Billings says one of his greatest inspirations was renowned South African paleoanthropologist, Prof Phillip Tobias. Billings was a student in his group of young paleoanthropologists.“I had the privilege of working with him and he took me under his wing,” he says. “He was very humble and pleasant.” But he also recalls that Tobias had high expectations of his students – he always wanted students to bring pen and paper to his office and take notes.“I don’t think I would have been in this field if it wasn’t for his influence and him believing in me,” Billings says. “Prof Tobias was patient with my questions, encouraging when I needed it and was my greatest advocate in the scientific community.”Tobias, an internationally renowned palaeoanthropologist and Professor Emeritus at Wits, died on 7 June 2012. He worked with his students up until his death a few months before his 87th birthday. ● The next Bone Detectives walking tour at Maropeng takes place on 18 May. The evening starts at 18h00 with welcome drinks, followed by a dinner at the Maropeng Hotel and a discussion with Brendon Billings. Booking is essential.

The bigger frost potential stays well north into Michigan and southern Ontario. Still, it will be cooler here to start off next week. AT this point we are keeping Tuesday drier too, allowing for just some clouds to develop through the day. We are pushing bigger rains back into next Wednesday.On Wednesday rain can bring totals of .25″-.75″ to 90% of the state. There is a bigger southwest flow part to the equation this morning, and that will boost the rain potential.

Sachin Tendulkar came agonisingly close to a phenomenal 100th international century before a pathetic India slumped to an innings and eight runs defeat in the fourth and final cricket Test to give a ruthless England a resounding 4-0 series win at The Oval cricket ground in London on Monday. Score | PicturesNeeding to bat out the entire fifth day to save the game, Tendulkar (91) led a spirited fightback alongwith Amit Mishra (84) but the complexion of the game changed dramatically after their dismissals as the visitors lost as many as seven wickets for a mere 21 runs to be all out for 283 in the second innings just at the stroke of tea.With this emphatic victory, England officially crowned themselves the number one team in Test rankings with 125 points followed by South Africa with 118 points.The Indians, who started the series as the number one Test team, surrendered the number one tag after losing the third Test in Birmingham and have now slipped to the number three position following the 4-0 whitewash.Spinner Graeme Swann was the wrecker-in-chief for England with with impressive figures of six for 106 while Stuart Broad chipped in with two wickets.Resuming at the overnight total of 129 for three, Tendulkar and Mishra raised hopes of drawing the game as the duo put on 144 runs for the fourth wicket but Mishra’s departure virtually opened up the floodgates as none of the Indian batsmen showed the determination to hang around for long.The visitors suffered a stunning collapse, losing their last seven wickets for 21 runs, a reflection of the caputilation which has been a feature right through the series.advertisementTendulkar and Mishra, who resumed this morning, continued the good work for the first 40 minutes after lunch but then both were gone in quick succession.Mishra started the rot when he played inside the line to a Graeme Swann delivery and his off-stump was pegged back.The gusty knock by the leg-spinner lasted for 184 minutes and 141 balls and his 84 runs included 10 fours.From the other end, India suffered the double blow when Tendulkar was given out leg before wicket which appeared a harsh decision as the Tim Bresnan delivery appeared to be heading down the leg stump.Television replays showed that the ball would have hit the top of the leg stump.Tendulkar made his 91 runs in 239-minutes and 172-ball innings, slamming 11 fours. It was not the best of his knock as he was dropped on scores of 70 and 85 off Swann and there was also a stumping against the off-spinner which went abegging last night.India?s innings unfolded quickly as Suresh Raina took his second duck from the match, out again to Swann but this time leg-before-wicket.England claimed the second new ball as soon as it was due and its? effect was immediately apparent. Mahendra Singh Dhoni (3) slashed at a wide delivery from Stuart Broad and was caught at second slip.RP Singh departed in the same over when he edged an outswinger into the gloves of wicketkeeper Matt Prior.Gautam Gambhir came out to bat at number eight and was hit on his helmet by a rising delivery from James Anderson.After six overs by the medium-pacers, off-spinner Swann was brought into attack and there was a loud claim for a catch in close-in cordon off Ishant Sharma which was upheld by umpire Rod Tucker.But the batsman asked for a review on the decision and the replays showed there was no contact with either the bat or the gloves.Swann also claimed the wicket of Gambhir when the left-hander charged down the wicket and only spliced a catch to Eoin Morgan at gully.-With PTI inputs
TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Newcastle offer Benitez new contractby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveNewcastle United have offered manager Rafa Benitez a new one-year contract offer.The Times says there has been fresh discussion about overcoming the current impasse, and a front runner is the possibility of a 12-month extension on the £6m-a-year deal the former Real Madrid and Liverpool manager signed in May 2016.Owner Mike Ashley, who is keen to sell the club and has called on would-be purchasers, including Peter Kenyon, to meet his asking price of between £280-£300m this month, remains unlikely to strengthen heavily during January without agreement.If Benitez agrees to the new deal then the tight hold on club’s finances is likely to be unlocked, although there remains a fundamental disagreement over how that money should be spent; Ashley wants young players whose value will rise and Benitez wants experience.However, without the confirmation of Benitez staying beyond the end of the season, Newcastle are unlikely to sanction the spending spree their supporters have been calling on for three transfer windows.

They are built to the design focused on energy efficiency, sustainability and new regulations.With a length of 149.8 meters and a width of 22.8 meters, the vessels have a capacity of 21,000 cbm.Expected to start operating during the spring and summer of 2019, the tanker pair will enter the Gothia Tanker Alliance network upon delivery.Thun Tankers is part of Gothia Tanker Alliance, a European tanker network for coastal tanker owners, currently operating 23 intermediate tankers ranging from 10,000 to 20,000 dwt and 17 coastal tankers in the size range from 6,000 to 8,000 dwt.The company will take delivery of three small and six intermediate newbuilds during 2019-2021.
From growing up in Monroeville, Ohio, to wrestling together at Ohio State, brothers Logan and Hunter Stieber have been inseparable. “We’re 18 months apart and we hung out basically every single day for our whole lives,” Hunter Stieber said. “We’re drill partners in practice. We’ve been best friends ever since our childhood and we still are in college.” The Stieber brothers have excelled in their time at OSU, amassing impressive numbers and racking up numerous accolades. Logan Stieber, a redshirt sophomore, is the defending 133-pound NCAA Champion and possesses a career record of 56-5. His younger brother, Hunter Stieber, a true sophomore, wrestles in the 141-pound weight class and holds a career record of 54-7. Both siblings were named All-Americans last year. It’s why OSU coach Tom Ryan dreams of more than two Stiebers. “I wish they were octuplets,” he said.”They’re a pleasure. They’re respectful. They’re disciplined. They win at a very high level and they’re eager to learn and get better. So we are very fortunate to have both of them.” However, without each other’s help, the brothers said they would be nowhere near as successful as they have been up to this point. “I’m able to have a workout partner whenever I want,” Logan Stieber said. “He’s my size. We push each other. I want him to be the best, and if he does really good, I want to match him, you know what I mean? So we both motivate each other in certain ways like that.” Hunter Stieber agreed that always having his brother around greatly benefits his performance on the mats. “It’s great just having him there to push me, help me out,” he said. “He’s an amazing wrestler. He’s an amazing coach and he sees all the little things that I need to work on. So after all my matches and practices, he can give me little hints and tips about what to improve on. He’s just a great asset that I have to help me get better.” It seems as though the Stiebers have been particularly beneficial to one another this season, as they both went undefeated in the regular season. Logan, despite missing most of January with a leg muscle strain, is 18-0 while Hunter has gone 26-0. The two have set their goals high for this season as both aspire to reach the pinnacle of NCAA wrestling. Logan wants to be named a national champion again while Hunter is seeking to win it for the first time. “I want to win a national title,” Hunter Stieber said. “I’m ranked second right now so it’s definitely in my reach. I just have to keep improving, working hard and working out with my brother and coach and I could definitely win a Big Ten and national title. Then we can push for a team title, but everyone has to do their job, including me and Logan. We have to perform to our best.” Both of them still have a few years left in their college careers no matter what happens this year. “Their potential is limitless,” Ryan said. “It’s whatever they want it to be. They understand hard work. They have the foundation that, if you want something in life, you have to work for it. So with that mentality, anything is possible.” The Stieber brothers will be back in action when OSU heads to the NWCA National Duals meet on Friday in Minneapolis, Minn.
