Located in Palm Springs, Ca, this home seeks to integrate the existing landscape and dramatic mountain scenery with indoor/outdoor living. The existing 1950’s home was tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac and demanded privacy. The mechanical systems were starting to fail and the finished grade at pool and deck were above the home’s finished floor, rendering the home at risk for potential flooding that could occur under heavy rain. Replacing the unserviceable home became more logical than trying to rehabilitate it. Focus then shifted to working around the existing landscape which included a koi pond that was maintained and fenced off during the construction process. Regrettably, a mature Italian Stone Pine tree had to be cut down as its roots were invasive and too close to the new foundation location; it has graciously been repurposed as table bases used throughout the site (observe main table in Lanai and small tables at pavilion).Save this picture!© Lance GerberUpon passing the split-face, concrete block feature wall and entering the home, a forthright composition of clean and durable materials is revealed as a backdrop to the client’s highly refined tactile finishes. Clerestory windows were used throughout the main living area to capture mountain views, while maintaining the desired privacy from the street. Passive design strategies are apparent in the space with generous south-facing glazing, operable windows throughout that allow for cross ventilation, and deep overhangs providing abundant shade during summer months while allowing desired warmth into the home during cooler winter months.Save this picture!© Lance GerberSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Lance GerberThe client requested a great room program, but with a visual separation from the kitchen. The challenge to integrate an enclosed working kitchen within the large open space, was achieved by a lower ceiling volume wrapping the kitchen and separating it from the dining room while keeping it open to the abundant backyard views. In targeting to have a seamless indoor/outdoor living experience, spaces often revolved around outdoor spaces as is the case with the great room, office, and master bedroom hinging off of the lanai. Keeping true to the site topography, the master bedroom takes advantage of existing site conditions by sitting 18 inches higher than lower finished floor. The master bedroom is accessed through the office “bridge”.Save this picture!© Lance GerberA palette of authentic and durable materials give the home a robustness contrasted by graceful finishes. The preserved landscape provided the finished design with an immediate mature feel not often experienced in a newly constructed home.Save this picture!© Lance GerberProject gallerySee allShow lessFootscray Apartment / BoardGrove ArchitectsSelected ProjectsChallenge Your Spatial Perception Skills with This New GameArchitecture News Share Architects: o2 Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Project Manager: JN Structural Engineering “COPY” Structural Engineer: Ridge Vista / o2 ArchitectureSave this projectSaveRidge Vista / o2 Architecture ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard United States Projects ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard General Contractor: CopyAbout this officeo2 ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPalm SpringsUnited StatesPublished on January 04, 2017Cite: “Ridge Vista / o2 Architecture” 04 Jan 2017.

The petition which has been preferred by the Chairman of the think tank Centre for Accountability and Systemic Change, Dr V. Singh, was opposed by the ECI which stated that the elections were not happening in Delhi, and therefore the masks related guidelines were to be enforced by the district level officials of the said five states.Opposing issuance of notice he said that merely because the Election Commission is in Delhi, would not confer jurisdiction on the Delhi High Court for the case.Appearing for the petitioner, Advocate Virag Gupta, however, refuted the objection placing reliance on a recent order of the Delhi High Court wherein Justice Hari Shankar had taken suo motu cognizance on incidents of non-wearing of masks by passengers in a Kolkata-Delhi Air India flight.He said that in light of the recent rise in the number of Covid-19 cases, the technical objection of the Election Commission was at best “frivolous”.He further highlighted a Feb 26 notification of the Election Commission which had made it mandatory for every person involved in election-related activity to wear a mask.Elaborating on the order on in-flight Covid-19 protocol, Gupta also said that the orders in that case too were issued to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) which is based in Delhi, and also to private airlines. He further pressed that the Election Commission should perform its legal and constitutional obligations as laid down under Article 324 of the Constitution.Next Storylast_img read more

Mom honors slain daughter on what would have been her 21st birthday

first_imgPoweshiek County Sheriffs Office(BROOKLYN, Iowa) — As her family celebrates her daughter’s birthday, Laura Calderwood wants people to remember Mollie Tibbetts by donating $21 to Mollie’s Movement, a fundraiser for restoration of the Brooklyn Opera House set up in honor of the late University of Iowa student.Calderwood said she hopes to mobilize the same community that participated in a month-long search for Tibbetts last year when she vanished in July after going out for a jog in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa. She was found stabbed to death in a field about a month later after a nationwide search.“We are asking people to donate $21 in honor of Mollie and we thought that was a reasonable amount that anybody could participate in,” Calderwood told ABC News’ Good Morning America in an interview that aired Wednesday, which would have been her daughter’s 21st birthday.The fundraiser was launched to remember her daughter’s love of theater.“Mollie was very gregarious, welcoming, outgoing — empathetic. She loved running. She loved theater arts. She loved singing in the shower,” Calderwood said. “Mollie was very dedicated to theater arts — she was in plays.”Calderwood said she’s had a difficult time accepting her daughter’s death, but she tries her best not to feel anger toward Christian Rivera, the accused murderer who led police to Tibbetts’ body in August.“It was indescribable and it took a higher power to get me through it, it really did … but we got through it,” she said. “I don’t wanna feel anger. I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it at all.”“I mean, people have asked me, you know, ‘Will you ever forgive him?’ And I said, ‘I haven’t — I’ve gone nowhere near that,’” she added.Calderwood has stayed largely silent in the wake of her daughter’s murder, but she said she chose to come forward in an effort to spread more kindness.“I just hope that we’ve set a good example. And with all the kindness that was given to my family and to the community — keep that in mind and pay that forward,” Calderwood said. “I mean, I received the kindness and now I’m trying to pay that forward.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Antarctic climate change during the last 50 years

first_imgThe Reference Antarctic Data for Environmental Research (READER) project data set of monthly mean Antarctic near-surface temperature, mean sea-level pressure (MSLP) and wind speed has been used to investigate trends in these quantities over the last 50 years for 19 stations with long records. Eleven of these had warming trends and seven had cooling trends in their annual data (one station had too little data to allow an annual trend to be computed), indicating the spatial complexity of change that has occurred across the Antarctic in recent decades. The Antarctic Peninsula has experienced a major warming over the last 50 years, with temperatures at Faraday/Vernadsky station having increased at a rate of 0.56 °C decade-1 over the year and 1.09 °C decade-1 during the winter; both figures are statistically significant at less than the 5% level. Overlapping 30 year trends of annual mean temperatures indicate that, at all but two of the 10 coastal stations for which trends could be computed back to 1961, the warming trend was greater (or the cooling trend less) during the 1961-90 period compared with 1971-2000. All the continental stations for which MSLP data were available show negative trends in the annual mean pressures over the full length of their records, which we attribute to the trend in recent decades towards the Southern Hemisphere annular mode (SAM) being in its high-index state. Except for Halley, where the trends are constant, the MSLP trends for all stations on the Antarctic continent for 1971-2000 were more negative than for 1961-90. All but two of the coastal stations have recorded increasing mean wind speeds over recent decades, which is also consistent with the change in the nature of the SAM.

From Scotia to ‘Operation Tabarin’: developing British policy for Antarctica

first_imgThe roots of a British Antarctic policy can be traced, paradoxically, back to the establishment of a meteorological station by the Scottish Antarctic Expedition in the South Orkneys, in 1903, and the indifference of the British Government to its almost immediate transfer to the Argentine Government. It was from that modest physical presence upon Laurie Island that Argentina came increasingly to challenge British claims to the sovereignty of the Falkland Islands Dependencies (FID), first in the late 1920s and then more extensively in the second world war. This challenge shaped British policy for the next forty years, with further complications caused by overlapping territorial claims made by Chile and the possible territorial ambitions of the USA. Britain’s eventual response, at the height of World War II, was to establish permanent occupation of Antarctica from the southern summer of 1943–1944. This occupation was given the military codename Operation Tabarin. However, it was never a military operation as such, although monitoring the activities of enemy surface raiders and submarines provided a convenient cover story, as did scientific research once the operation became public. Whilst successive parties, rich in professional scientists, considerably expanded the pre-war survey and research of the Discovery Investigations Committee, their physical occupancy of the Antarctic islands and Peninsula was essentially a political statement, whereby the Admiralty and Colonial Office (CO) strove to protect British territorial rights, whilst the Foreign Office (FO) endeavoured to minimise disruption to Britain’s long-standing economic and cultural ties with Argentina, and most critically, the shipment of war-time meat supplies. In meeting that immediate need, Tabarin also provided the basis from which Britain’s subsequent post-war leadership in Antarctic affairs developed.last_img read more

Japan: Submarine Group Seven Holds Change of Command Ceremony at Fleet Activities Yokosuka

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Japan: Submarine Group Seven Holds Change of Command Ceremony at Fleet Activities Yokosuka View post tag: Yokosuka View post tag: Command June 20, 2013 Japan: Submarine Group Seven Holds Change of Command Ceremony at Fleet Activities Yokosuka View post tag: activities View post tag: Defense View post tag: fleet View post tag: submarine Share this article View post tag: Ceremony Submarine Group Seven held a change of command ceremony at Fleet Activities Yokosuka, June 18. During the ceremony, Rear Adm. Stuart B. Munsch relieved Rear Adm. Phillip G. Sawyer as commander of carrier strike group (CSG) 7, also assuming responsibility as commander of Task Forces 54 and 74.Vice Adm. Scott H. Swift, commander, U.S. Seventh Fleet, was the honored guest and key speaker during the ceremony. Swift commended Sawyer for a job well-done in his capacities as CSG 7, commander task forces (CTF) 74 and 54.“No one can match the prowess of U.S. submarine capabilities, and nowhere are those capabilities honed to such a fine edge or executed with such frequency than here at Seventh Fleet by CTF-74 under Admiral Sawyer’s leadership,” said Swift. “Nowhere are submarine operations more complex, more active, more important, and more successful than here at Seventh Fleet. That success is a result of Phil’s insightful leadership, innovative approach to optimizing force posture, and a steady hand guiding day to day tactical operations.”Under Sawyer’s command, CTF 54 and 74 achieved operational success of more than 38 submarine deployments and 70 special submarine missions. As the theater anti-submarine warfare commander for Seventh Fleet, Sawyer brought tactical and operational expertise to bear across multiple warfare areas and greatly advanced war fighting integration with allied submarine forces.In recognition of his achievements, Sawyer received the Legion of Merit Award.“This award really belongs to the men and women, the civilians and Sailors, who make up group seven,” said Sawyer. “Day in and day out you perform Herculean tasks, and they are executed for us across ten time zones, from the international dateline all the way out to the Suez Canal. And you always keep faith with our golden rule, and that is: do whatever is necessary to enable the success of our assigned units. Their success is our success. … I sincerely thank each and every one of you for your dedicated service.”Sawyer expressed his gratitude to his counterparts and friends in the Japan Maritime Self Defense Forces, Republic of Korea Navy, and the Sailors, civilians, and families who are a part of the Forward Deployed Naval Forces in the Seventh Fleet. He felt privileged to have lived and worked in Japan, and will miss the people and the friendships that he developed during his tour as commander, Submarine Group Seven.“It’s very hard to give up something you cherish, but it’s easier giving it up to a friend,” said Sawyer. “And Stewart Munsch is not only a very good submarine officer; he is a good friend who I have known for many years. Submarine Group seven will be in very good hands under his leadership.”Munsch, a 1985 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, recently served as deputy director, undersea warfare division (N97B) in the Pentagon since August 2011.Sawyer will report as commander, Submarine Force U.S. Pacific Fleet.“Admiral Sawyer has been hand picked to lead the entire Pacific submarine force for a reason,” said Swift. “His performance here gives United States Navy leadership the confidence that he – more than any other – has what it takes to shoulder such great responsibility and excel in the execution of those responsibilities.”[mappress]Press Release, June 20, 2013 View post tag: Group View post tag: Naval View post tag: SEVEN View post tag: Navy View post tag: change View post tag: News by topic View post tag: holds View post tag: Defence Authoritieslast_img read more

Preventing bullying in Michigan: “Adults have to do more”

first_img Preventing bullying in Michigan: “Adults have to do more” WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Google+ Facebook Pinterest Facebook dramatic portrait scared and stressed Asian Korean teen girl or young woman with laptop computer and mobile phone suffering cyber bullying stalked LANSING, Mich. – Bullying continues to be a pervasive problem among Michigan youth, and it’s more common among high school students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer-plus.Young people who are bullied or harassed are at greater risk for depression, thoughts of suicide and substance abuse.Jamie Erdheim, coordinator of MY Consent Culture with the Michigan Organization on Adolescent Sexual Health, explained the pandemic and the current political climate are both intensifying bullying based on sexual orientation or gender identify.She said young people often find themselves dealing with the problem alone.“Youth are the ones often fighting for better protections, or having people take harassment or violence seriously,” said Erdheim. “And that’s a travesty. Adults are the ones that set the culture. They’re the ones that set the climate. Adults have the power. It’s on adults. We have to do more.”Erdheim contended addressing bullying is more than a single conversation, but an entire culture shift. And while progress has been made in recent years on equality, she said discrimination against some groups continues – and the harm it causes is too often minimized.Erdheim said ensuring student safety in the virtual learning environment is uncharted territory for Michigan educators. Her organization – MOASH – has been providing training and professional development to help teachers learn ways to keep lines of open communication with their students.“People are trying to skill-build, skill-share and then troubleshoot,” said Erdheim. “What have you tried, what’s worked, what’s not worked? How to be trauma-informed in a virtual space; how to interact with youth; how to connect with youth outside of class. We’re all kind of just building the bike as we’re riding it.”Erdheim said what’s especially tricky is helping a student who’s being harassed at home. She said it’s important to examine how best to support these young people outside the classroom environment.“I can’t make your home life better, per se,” said Erdheim. “But we can work with educators and trusted people in your school to make it affirming. We can’t be everywhere all the time, and we can’t change hearts and minds. We want youth to stay in their homes, and we want those homes to be safe.”Before the pandemic, one-in-five students reported being bullied, with 15% of incidents occurring online or through texting.
