Please enter your email address here The Seminole Tribe is currently in talks with state legislators to draft proposals on regulating mobile sports betting in the Sunshine State. The fallout from COVID-19 has devastated economic activity and led to widespread unemployment across Florida. In an attempt to make up the budget shortfalls, Florida legislators are eyeing out-of-the-box proposals such as regulated online betting activity.This unprecedented move for Florida was made possible by the state of New Jersey which pushed to get PASPA of 1992 overturned by the Supreme Court of the United States. New Jersey is one of a few states in the USA that allows online gambling to legal-aged players. Online-casinos-nj.com lists the state’s legal online casinos which have set the benchmark for other states, including Delaware, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and others.Seminole Tribe will Pay for Exclusive Rights to Sports Betting OnlineThe Seminole Tribe of Florida owns and operates the hugely successful Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. As lawmakers continue to work feverishly on crafting a budget for 2020/2021, unforeseen expenses and the shuttering of non-essential economic activity has ramped up financial pressures on state coffers. According to the New York Times, there are currently over 36,000+ cases of coronavirus in Florida, with 1,378+ deaths, and rising.Heading into May 2020, Florida received an estimated 2 million claims and has processed just a third of them – the slowest in the US. This has spurred calls to fast-track online gaming legislation with the Seminole Tribe. If projections are correct, the legislation could generate returns of $500 million for Florida in inception year, followed by at least $700 million per annum thereafter.Florida Voters Have Final Say on Gambling ExpansionNew Jersey has successfully implemented legal online betting and legal online gaming across the state, with significant year-on-year returns being generated. There have been certain hurdles to legal online gaming in Florida, notably a variety of opposing interests and amendments to the constitution.Nonetheless, it has widely been reported that the Seminole Tribe will be paying the $500 million for the first year and the $700 million every year thereafter to the state of Florida for exclusivity vis-a-vis online sports betting services.Lawmakers hope that legislation permitting mobile sports betting can mitigate the effects of severe budget shortfalls that are currently being experienced. Back in 2018, Florida voters decided by a margin of 71%-29% that they will have the final say on any further gambling expansion a.k.a. Amendment 3. Please enter your comment!

Sonny Bill Williams debut for Toulon defies court order

first_imgSunday Aug 10, 2008 Sonny Bill Williams debut for Toulon defies court order We recently reported on the sensational move of NRL star Sonny Bill Williams to Toulon in France. A whole lot has happened off the field, culminating in a NSW Court order from the NRL to stop him from playing. Despite that, Williams made his debut for the newly promoted Top 14 team yesterday, playing well, but earning a yellow card in the process.Williams displayed the star factor thats been associated with his career since he was a teenager. Thousands turned out to watch him strut his stuff in the pre-season friendly against Carqueiranne-Hyeres.It was a mixed day for the New Zealander, as his team won easily 50-5, but he himself received a yellow card for a shoulder charge that is most definitely not part of the Union code.His victim afterwards described the hit as it being like an electrocution.Williams will adjust to the laws quickly though, and with the glimpses of brilliance he showed while playing on the wing – one handed offloads and basketball like skills – he is sure to be a superstar in France.Off the field though he faces his biggest challenge, as walking out on his contract with the Bulldogs two weeks ago has put him in the spotlight, with the NRL lawyers and top dogs out to make things right, which could actually mean he’ll face jail time if he continues to play in defiance of the NSW Supreme Court injunction.NRL boss David Gallop said they have “no choice” but to continue the legal pursuit of the Bulldog, warning that if he plays again, when Toulon meet Toulouse for a friendly on Friday night, they will be forced to take things further.Williams is not only flirting with a jail term for contempt of court, but he risks losing his Australian assets, including his $1.3 million Caringbah home.“It’s one thing not to comply with an obligation you have in a contract, it’s another thing altogether to defy an order of the court,” NRL lawyer Tony O’Reilly stated.To avoid being personally served with the injunction before kick-off, Williams travelled to the game by car, rather than the team bus. He also didnt warm up with the team, but received a huge ovation from the crowd, despite it being an away match.Speaking to a Sydney newspaper he said he’s prepared to go to jail for what he believes in.“What I’ve done, it’s shown it’s just not about me, it’s about the boys getting a fair go, you know what I mean?” he said. “It’s about them having the balls to stand up for themselves, and get what they should be getting.“I just want to see the game and the players looked after the way they should be because the crowds don’t turn up to watch David Gallop play… they turn up to watch the players play.“Hopefully some good can come out of what I’ve done and it wakes everybody up and they realise that something needs to be done.” :: Related Posts :: Sonny Bill Williams leaves the Bulldogs & League, goes to Toulon Sonny Bill Williams highlights Time: 01:57ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 6

first_imgFriday Mar 26, 2010 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 6 Now things gets interesting. The Super 14 is approaching the halfway stage and the top two teams, the Bulls and the Stormers, are off on tour. Will the Bulls continue to dominate while they’re away from home? Time will tell. For now though, we’ll take a look at the best tries of Round 6.Starting off with the outstanding match between the Blues and the Brumbies at Eden Park, we’ve got a great try that was finished off by centre Benson Stanley after a great break out by Rene Ranger and some neat handling from the backs. The Blues won the match 39-34.Joe Rokocoko scored a couple of tries on the night too, with the one coming from a well placed kick by Stephen Brett. Patrick Phibbs crossed for the Brumbies after a nice burst by Rocky Elsom.The Crusaders thumped the Lions 46-19 in Christchurch, but the final score perhaps didn’t do the tourists justice as they’d been in the match for the most part, spare a few late tries from the hosts. Crusaders Flanker Jonathan Poff got his chance to start and showed what a valuable asset he can be to the side, as well as crossing for a try. Sean Maitland also scored a classy try.One of the games of the weekend was the meeting of the Bulls and the Hurricanes at Loftus. While the Hurricanes hadn’t had such a good tour, the Bulls had been rampant and were probably expected to breeze past.It wasn’t the case though, as the ‘Canes pushed them all the way, including scoring a great try after some excellent handling. The final score was 19-18 to the Bulls, which included a nice finish by fullback Zane Kirchner.In an incredibly physical local derby, the Stormers beat the Cheetahs 21-8 with Jaque Fourie scoring a nice try after some good play by captain Schalk Burger.It was a pretty entertaining weekend of rugby all in all, but Round 7 has begun so it’s now time to focus on that. If you spot anything that you think is worth sharing on RD, please fire in a mail or post a request.Enjoy the tries, and have a good weekend. The Ross Skeate column is coming up.

Quade Cooper back in Australia until 2019 with new Reds deal

first_imgThursday Sep 1, 2016 Quade Cooper back in Australia until 2019 with new Reds deal Quade Cooper has officially put pen to paper, signing with the Queensland Reds until 2019. The former Toulon playmaker heads back to Brisbane, where his career began in 2006, in a quest to add to his 107 Queensland appearances and 59 Wallaby Test caps. Cooper played a season in Toulon with Matt Giteau and Drew Mitchell but has decided that it’s time to come home to where he grew up and has played the majority of his rugby. Cooper said: “It was a tough decision as I believe the Rebels have a great Rugby program with some well respected coaches and a talented list but I feel that coming home to the Reds is the right move for me at this point.“At the time when I decided to leave I felt that I needed a change and to experience something else. When I was away I started to look at my life as a whole. What made Rugby enjoyable to me was I got to do it in front of the people I love the most, which is my family and friends and that I got to play for the club that became such a huge part of my life. “For me, when I think of Rugby and my life I think of the Reds. It’s a massive part of my life. I’ve been through the low times and the good times at the Reds and I want to be part of putting them back on top.“I’m very much looking forward to working with Stilesy. I know he’s a good technical coach and that he’ll play a big part in the culture of the team. The list is one that I think can be successful in the near future and the long term as well.“I’m now 28 and I want to build something that is sustainable for the future but also be apart of something that I believe will be successful in the near future and I believe that the Reds will be the place to achieve that.”Cooper’s three-year deal will take him until after the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, meaning he has every opportunity to become a Test regular again for the Wallabies.  “For me, playing at the highest level for the Wallabies against the best teams in the world, week in, week out is the ultimate, and it will always be the pinnacle of our sport. “Being back in Australia and having the opportunity to play for the Wallabies is something that drives me every day and being around my friends and family in Queensland is equally important for me.“We have a good opportunity in the coming weeks to put some of the hard work we’ve done into action, and I know my teammates and I are looking forward to the challenge that lies ahead.”QUADE COOPER CAREER STATSPosition: FlyhalfHeight: 186cm Weight: 92kg DOB: 05/04/1988POB: Auckland, New ZealandRepresentative honours: Australian Schoolboys (2005-2006), Australian Under 19s (2007), Queensland (2007-2015), Brisbane City NRC (2014), Wallabies (2008-), Brisbane City NRC (2014) Rugby World cup (2011, 2015)Queensland debut: 2006 v Japan, TokyoQueensland caps: 107 (includes two non-Super Rugby games against Japan and British & Irish Lions)Queensland points: 772 (24T, 113C, 135PG, 7DG)Super Rugby debut: 2007 v Crusaders, ChristchurchSuper Rugby caps: 105Super Rugby points: 770 (24T, 112C, 135PG, 7DG)Test debut: 2008 v Italy, PadovaTest caps: 59Test points: 154 (8T, 27C, 18PG, 2DG)ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Transfers , Wallabies Related Articles 242 WEEKS AGO Brumbies sign Jonah Lomu’s hard hitting nephew,… 252 WEEKS AGO Top 5 most exciting Premiership signings… 266 WEEKS AGO Harlequins confirm departing players following… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Floating House / Hyunjoon Yoo Architects

first_imgPhotographs:  Seunghoon YumText description provided by the architects. Site The given land has beautiful scenery facing the Bukhan River in the north. In the meanwhile, lots of restaurants and motels are seen in the south and decadent neon signs are seen from here to here creating visual pollution. Client The clients are a couple in their fifties and sixties who run an elegant Korean restaurant which was built in a traditional Korean style. They wanted to build a house for them in the given land about five minutes away from the restaurant. They wanted to overlook the river from a high level, at the height of the third floor. His close Feng Shui specialist had advised them not to make a door facing east and not to let people live in the southwest. They wanted to have a study room, a barbeque place, and a guest house for their daughter’s family who sometimes visit them. They also wanted to make a big yard to play and jump about and a low-leveled swimming pool for their grandchildren. The wife wanted a design that gives a heavy and magnificent feeling. Save this picture!© Seunghoon YumRecommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalSpace Planning The house was located in the north as far as it can be for a big sunny yard in the south. The guest house was located in the south so that the restaurants and motels are not seen from the yard. The guest house was built as if it were the fence to be located as far as it can be in the south. It looks like it was put inside the thick fence. To view the river from the yard and the guest house, the main building was leveled up to be a piloti. The roof of the main building was made as a plain roof and there is a roof garden in which people can overlook the river from high level. As a result, the river is viewed from every part of the house. Save this picture!© Seunghoon YumTo make the house look as big as possible, a one meter wide balcony made of the same materials as the main building was built at its four sides. The regulation defines that a balcony with one meter width is not included in total floor area. By doing so, the interior looks as if it keeps expanding when it is seen from inside the building. Also, since all the buildings were lifted from the floor for one floor’s height, the pilotis space could be more expanded. Not to make the pilotis look big-headed like most piloti space with small and minimal columns, the columns were made thicker than necessary and a waterspout was installed inside to make the first floor look like a heavy rock. Black concrete was used for a magnificent style, creating the feeling of tiles used in traditional Korean-style houses. As a result, the house created an image which is similar to the Korean-style restaurant of the clients. Save this picture!© Seunghoon YumThe plan can be described as the “space within space.” The service space, such as a bathroom, a dress room, and a kitchen, was concentrated in the middle and compactly distributed, and a bedroom was placed in the east, a living room in the west, and a corridor in the outskirts. To make people in the house feel the space bigger than real, a circular traffic line was adopted instead of one main traffic line. The circular traffic line was made with a minimum width to differentiate the intensity of space, but the space does not look small because the traffic line extends to visually meet the terrace. Since the stairs that lead to the roof were made as if they were inserted to the second floor, the staircase does not protrude on the roof. The staircase itself plays a role as a well of light, transmitting light to the middle level of the house. Save this picture!© Seunghoon YumRelation Network Design Architecture is to design relationship. There are three kinds of relationships: physical relationship, visual relationship, and psychological relationship. “Physical relationship” is the relationship in which a person looks at an object and actually he/she can reach that. The example is space where a person can communicate with a gate, a corridor, a road, or a bridge. “Visual relationship” means the relationship in which a person can look at an object but he/she cannot reach that. When a person looks at the ground across the river that has no bridge, and he/she communicates with that place through a window from a place without door, it is the visual relationship. “Psychological relationship” is the relationship in which a person cannot go over or look at an object, but he/she knows that there is the object. When a person is in a place without a window and he/she knows that there is a room beyond the wall, it is the psychological relationship. Save this picture!© Seunghoon YumIn this house, these kinds of relationships were created through traditional “rooms,” such as living room, bedroom, roof, staircase, kitchen, or bathroom. For example, the study room and the kitchen were divided by a staircase but connected through a small window. The bathroom was connected to the sky through the window at the top and connected to the staircase that leads to the roof at the third floor through the window. Also, a person can look at the river through the study room while he/she is taking a shower or bath. In the living room, there are same-sized windows at the top and bottom to provide a wormhole-like feeling to the parallel structure. Through this mechanism, a visual relationship was formed at each floor. The windows and doors here and there were devised to create more various relationships in the simple mass-shaped house.Save this picture!© Seunghoon YumProject gallerySee allShow lessTaiwan Tower Competition Winner / DSBA, Mihai Carciun and upgrade.studioArticles60th AIA Seattle Honor Awards for Washington ArchitectureArticles Share ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/89701/floating-house-hyunjoon-yoo-architects Clipboard South Korea Floating House / Hyunjoon Yoo Architects Projects “COPY” CopyHouses•South Korea Save this picture!© Seunghoon Yum+ 31 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/89701/floating-house-hyunjoon-yoo-architects Clipboard Architects: Hyunjoon Yoo Architects Area Area of this architecture project 2009 Houses “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHyunjoon Yoo ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSouth KoreaPublished on November 19, 2010Cite: “Floating House / Hyunjoon Yoo Architects” 19 Nov 2010.

Casa dos Cubos / EMBAIXADA arquitectura

first_img Text description provided by the architects. Since the last decade of the xx century, it has been usual, especially in the old Europe, the commission of projects demanding the conservation, renovation and conversion of constructions from a recent and distant past and from the most diverse typologies, and cultural matrices – This Interior architecture often becomes a field of experimentation for architectural ideas and one of the most challenging themes of the contemporary city. Not only because of urban conditions but also because of historical, social and political demands.

PivotThis preservation syndrome, sometimes leads to a overvaluation of the building structures. Age is not a warranty of architectural quality; on the contrary it is a natural process of selection. The adequacy to new and contemporary programs can be extremely liable to error. If in certain cases the possibility of adequacy is enrolled in the spatial identity of the building, in others the change of uses reveals itself inadequate, leading to an inconsistent meaning in the character of the building. Sometimes the preservation of the architecture we possess, can be, the worst manner of Destruction. Save this picture!Courtesy of embaixada arquitecturaThe project is part of a nationwide and governmental program – the Polis programme. The strategy was to revive cities by introducing new equipments such as the Environmental Monitoring and Interpretation Offices (EMIO) buildings. The aim was for this project to energize the rehabilitation of the city. The EMIO are public infrastructure for exhibition and other cultural events, concerning environmental and regional subjects. Save this picture!sectionThe Project is a reconversion of a former rundown infrastructure that plays a relevant role in the social and urban context of the city of Tomar, although without any particular architectural interest. Located at the beginning of the city historical centre, the building has been subjected to several attachments and changes over the years, finding itself threatened by some decadence and inadequate for the intended use. Even though the building it’s protected under historic-preservation ordinances.Save this picture!modelThe new program comprises two distinct areas: a public area for exhibitions, meetings and cafeteria and a private area consisting of Lecture rooms and accommodation for invited artists. Confronted with the regulation plans, the design maintains the entire external perimeter construction, while its rundown interior is totally scooped out. Therefore and due to the functional program, the new construction establishes itself as the anatomy of the existing building. A new architectural body that runs throughout the available space, de-multiplying tectonically the finite interior into a new series of places and programmatic situations. The private areas are volumetrically defined within the structure and optimized for inhabitability. Each with its own access, atmosphere, identity, shape, use and dimension. The Social life, exhibitions and meetings take place in the interstitial space around the new structure, and are characterized and organized by the programmatic events defined by the enclosed spaces. Save this picture!first floor planThe spaces “born” from a visceral symbiosis and from the tension between this architectonic organism and the physical limits that keep him in captivity. The existing building acquires a new interior reading, being reconfigured and transformed in a unitarian and hermetic space with the use of white mate paint and mate epoxy resin coating. For the organism that contaminates the interior it was created and developed a kind of skin. A materiality intended to be abstract and simultaneously expressionistic. Through some kind of alchemy a substance was developed, a recipe, by conjoining some “ingredients”: Dark pigment, Acrylic resin and reflective glass spheres. The entrails of this animal were painted with glossy white paint and with glossy epoxy resin coating. A new interior within an interior interior. A machine capable of producing space, installed in a shell that was progressively deflated and then insufflated with a new and strange form of life.Save this picture!Courtesy of embaixada arquitecturaProject gallerySee allShow less“From Suburb to City” International Summer Academy 2012ArticlesPassive House International Design CompetitionArticles Share Casa dos Cubos / EMBAIXADA arquitecturaSave this projectSaveCasa dos Cubos / EMBAIXADA arquitectura Casa dos Cubos / EMBAIXADA arquitectura Architects: EMBAIXADA arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project Houses Area:  980 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Portugal ArchDaily “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/202783/casa-dos-cubos-embaixada-arquitectura Clipboardcenter_img Projects 2007 Year:  “COPY” Save this picture!Courtesy of embaixada arquitectura+ 23 Share CopyHouses•Tomar, Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/202783/casa-dos-cubos-embaixada-arquitectura Clipboard CopyAbout this officeEMBAIXADA arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCultural CenterTomarCulturalRefurbishmentPortugalPublished on January 27, 2012Cite: “Casa dos Cubos / EMBAIXADA arquitectura” 27 Jan 2012.

Same of them could be passed through, some of them couldn’t. Some of them where people take views from and of them are the images to view. Today, when the city space already changed so much that these kind of gates are no longer suitable, then we still withdraw only the form of this symbol. It is our first try for understand, and expecting.Save this picture!Courtesy of qsjw architectsAdditional, we used the slice tiles (55mm*235mm*12mm) which is the most similar material as the traditional Chinese brick, used to be as thick as 55mm*235mm*120mm. Nowadays, the local people use this tiles as decoration but still with the layout like it used to be. The tile itself reflects the form of circle, going on for the Garden/Countryside image. Then, we tried a totally different layout. As four pieces of tiles lying together with a separation of 5mm, would be a square in 235mm*235mm. That is our basic module for the layout. With this module, we indicated the tiles’ function for decoration only. We also tried to achieve a special random in this simple construction detail.Save this picture!Courtesy of qsjw architectsThe image of “Shan-Shui” is another key element of this design. Different from the traditional Chinese house, we reversed the section of the roof: the “Ridge” is always lower than the “Edge” to win the modernity. Meanwhile, it enriched the volume and arrangement of the roof, which creates different lighting effects.Save this picture!Courtesy of qsjw architectsLater in the interior design, we just kept all the details as simple as possible, just to explore the materials themselves, for a clear environment, a living space.Save this picture!Courtesy of qsjw architectsProject gallerySee allShow lessPlabennec Gymnasium / Bohuon Bertic ArchitectesArticles’CHANGE, Architecture, Education, Practices’ ConferenceArticles Share CopyHouses•China ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/238889/villa-a-qsjw-architects Clipboardlast_img read more

This project has been shortlisted for the housing category for the 2012 world architecture festival and awarded by memar, an iranian magazine of architecture, as one of the best architectural achievements of the year. The “Brick Pattern House “designed by alireza mashhadimirza. Brick pattern house is a residence located in poor area in Tehran. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaIn my country architecture is a luxurious fantasy, but in much country which architecture is a reality. The building is located in one of the poorest districts of Tehran in jeyhoon area, where let alone the architecture, you can hardly find a building that has the minimum standard requirements of a sane building. I always considered the social role of architecture. This project was a challenge for me. I knew I didn’t have any chance to earn money on this project, but I was determined to show that architecture can happen even in such economically and culturally poor area. There you can hardly make something that is not a square box. The only think you have to work on it as architect, is the plain façade of the building. The construction cost for this project (including structure and technical services) was equivalent to 180 us dollars per sqm and the building plot was 130 sqm. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaThe professional fee the owner could pay to me was so low that I could not pay a resident and tight supervision on the building and on the other hand the workers could not be left with complex executive drawings. Therefore I’ve decided to create a method that does not need any phase 2 drawings. The result was paying more attention to details and designing complicated details in a very simple way. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaIn jeyhoon area, no owner can afford the costs of a contractor and the houses are built by the owners themselves. This is the case. During the construction, I had to deal with a few workers that didn’t have any idea about the construction industry and standards. Construction machinery and equipment were primitive. Nevertheless, in this condition, I could not deliver a village cottage to my client, but a city building with an earthquake resistant structure, energy saving walls, acceptable acoustic properties, fire safety and functional technical services. The space requirements were also similar to any small scale modern apartment building. In our country, labor wage is proportionally low and the possibility of creating special designs on smaller scales is more than developed countries. In this project, I tried to be creative on using local labors and show how valuable a brick facade could be. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaConsidering my limitations on one hand and my wish to give a clear architectural message to the people of jeyhoon on the other, I decided first to concentrate my effort on the exterior of the building. Interior design remained nothing more than a functional space aesthetically related to the façade. In order to recall the traditional architecture, I used brick as the main construction material and made a kind of contemporary mashrabiya to cover the whole façade and to mitigate the glaring sun light of Tehran. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaWe designed a tridimensional brick wall which also has a cultural value. In our country people care so much about privacy in their houses and they usually use curtains to block the windows. Therefore, they will miss the outside view .with this semi-transparent brick wall there is no need to put curtains and we can still have outside view. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaIn respect of our low budget, we needed to create a method which does not make us produce lots of executive drawings and does not require a great amount of time for supervision. So we invented a new and extremely easy mean of communication based on a table including all needed information for creating the facade. This is something similar to the instructions traditionally recited in the carpet workshops during the work time to coordinate the activities of several weavers working on the same carpet. We named this instruction “method 23” because everything is associated with the number 23. 23 brick rows, 23 sliced bricks, 23 boxes of bricks, and 23 columns of structural supports. Save this picture!Courtesy of Alireza MashhadmirzaThis method is like putting together pieces of a simple puzzle, each has a code to identify the location and orientation. The complete instruction was included in one a4 page given to the workers. According to this instruction the workers received 23 brick boxes. Each box contained the numbered and sliced bricks. As it is shown in the chart for example there were 23 bricks in the first box numbered from 1 to 23 and in the 23rd box there was only one brick which was the no.23. All the bricks were drilled like it is shown in the picture. In each floor there were 23 boxes. The workman first opened the box no.1 and put the bricks in to the framework starting from number 1and ending to no. 23. Obviously we needed to explain our method to the workers, but once they understood the trick, the work became a child’s play.
