The explosive, news-breaking story of how Putin´s Russia came to control the White House. Much has been written about the ties between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Most reports focus on Russia´s interference in the presidential election, but the true extent of Trump´s collusion with the Russians is only just beginning to be understood. As the world wakes up to one of the biggest political scandals of the modern era, Craig Unger is uniquely placed to expose the truth behind Trump´s long-running relations with the Russian state. In his sweeping investigation, Unger reveals how Trump became a target of Vladimir Putin´s decades-long mission to undermine Western democracy and the geopolitical hegemony of the United States, a mission for which Putin and his hand-selected group of oligarchs and mafia kingpins had ensnared Trump long before he ran for office. Drawing on original research, exclusive sources, anonymous tips, and leaked and never-before-seen documents, Unger is the first reporter to unravel Trump´s long, tangled history with Vladimir Putin and the Russian mafia, and fully grasp the significance of Russia´s ambitions to destabilise the West. House of Trump, House of Putin is both a page-turning thriller and an epic tale of intrigue, drama, and shady dealings, reported from the frontline of a new Cold War.

The town of Schlins in Vorarlberg has long been a Mecca for all those with an interest in clay construction. On the steep southern slope, the clay builder Martin Rauch worked together with Zurich architect Roger Boltshauser to erect his new artist´s residence. From its foundation all the way to its fl at roof, it is made entirely of excavated soil from the site on which it is built: the floors and arched ceilings, the plasterwork on ceiling and walls, the washstands, tiles, and stairs - all are made from the single material clay in its various forms.The house is a show house as well as the document of a unique collaboration. At the sametime, it is a striking example of how, with the structural and design limitations of this ´´soft´´ and massive building technique, a spatially and tectonically adequate design can be achieved - and how an archaic building technique can be used in a contemporary manner. With today´s renewed focus on energetic and ecological consequences, clay construction, with its special ecological, organic, and aesthetic qualities, is again becoming a subject of widespread interest. The structure presented in this book has received national and international awards and represents a milestone in the field.Schlins in Vorarlberg ist schon seit längerem ein Mekka für an experimenteller Lehmbautechnik Interessierte. Am steilen Südhang hat der Lehmbauer Martin Rauch hier in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Architekten Roger Boltshauser aus Zürich sein neues Wohn- und Atelierhaus errichtet. Es ist vom Fundament bis zum flachen Dach geformt aus dem an Ort und Stelle gewonnenen Erdaushub: die Böden, Deckengewölbe, Wand- und Deckenverputze, die Stufen, Fliesen und Waschtische - alles aus dem einen Material Lehm in seinen verschiedenen Verarbeitungsformen. Das Haus ist ebenso ein Musterhaus wie Dokument einer einzigartigen Zusammenarbeit. Gleichzeitig ist es eindrückliches Beispiel dafür, wie mit den statischen und gestalterischen Limits dieser ´´weichen´´, massiven Bauart eine räumlich und tektonisch adäquate Gestaltung erreicht werden kann. Und wie eine archaische Bautechnik zeitgemäß eingesetzt werden kann. Mit seinen ökologischen, baubiologischen und ästhetischen Qualitäten gewinnt der Lehmbau gerade bei der heutigen Wiederbesinnung auf Energie- und Ökobilanzen erneut an Aktualität. Das in diesem Buch vorgestellte Bauwerk erhielt nationale und internationale Auszeichnungen und setzt in diesem Bereich einen Meilenstein.
Precious Ramotswe learns valuable lessons about first impressions and forgiveness in this latest installment of the much-loved, best-selling No. 1 Ladies´ Detective Agency series. At Botswana´s No 1 Ladies´ Detective Agency, Precious Ramotswe and Grace Makutsi are intrigued by the troubling dismissal of an employee at a thriving local business. The ladies proceed with investigations as they are inclined to do - with Mma Makutsi´s customary vigour, and Mma Ramotswe´s rather more subtle caution. Soon enough, interesting discoveries are made... marital subterfuge, undue influence and commercial chicanery! Clearly, there is more to this dismissal than at first imagined. While Mma Makutsi´s focus, as self-appointed Principal Investigating Officer, is firmly on the case, Mma Ramotswe´s attention is diverted by personal matters. Not only has her disgraced ex-husband reappeared in town, but she has stumbled on an unsettling family secret of her own - one that might threaten what she holds closest to her heart. As Precious contemplates this painful possibility, she must draw on her strength and compassion and confront The House of Unexpected Sisters. And for both Mma Makutsi and Mma Ramotswe, the wise words of their mentor Clovis Andersen - ´the needle swings in confusing ways´ - have never been more prescient . . .
Although the concept of mass customization has beenimplemented in the computer, clothing, andautomobile industries, it has not been fullyintegrated in architecture, especially in thehousing industry which is more directly related topersonal life style. One of the arguments in thisbook focuses on the current implementation that isnot fully functional to address the consumer s needsby selecting the product s appearance only. The bookpresents the possibilities of customizing modularhouses by internet and architectural programmingmethods. A prototype advisory system has beendeveloped to facilitate the non-architecturaltrained clients to select the appropriate designschemes and components based on their ownpreference. Besides that, the proposed workflowadopts Building Information Modeling (BIM)applications as the design collaboration platform inthe building delivery process. The findings of thisresearch provide an open-ended framework and usefulreference to professionals in AEC industries andarchitectural research fields, or anyone else whomay be considering utilizing online feedback loopsfor the participatory design approach.
