This Los Gatos home was designed to capture the amazing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains as the home sits nestled into the hillside on a south-facing slope. The clients wanted to fill the house with natural light, where the existing house had low overhanging eaves on the south side, limiting the view and natural light.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAThe owners wanted to ensure they had a no maintenance exterior to their home so we chose Swiss Pearl, fiber cement panels utilizing a rain-screen system, which keeps the house cooler in the summer, and allows a breathable barrier between the siding and the waterproofing.

A lesson on Annie Bass

first_img Pioneer Museum Director Kari Barley is quick to share the legacy of Annie Cloud Bass with visitors. Miss Bass, a Brundidge native, was a benefactor of many organizations in PIke County and two displays at the museum are dedicated in her honor. Below right, this portrait of Miss Annie Cloud is on display at the museum. (Messenger Photo / Jaine Treadwell)The Pioneer Museum of Alabama interprets the history of Pike County as well as 18th and 19th century rural life.Kari Barley, museum director, said the 40-acre museum has 21 historic structures and 18,000 artifacts that illustrate its rich, rustic heritage.“Four thematic exhibition halls within our Main Gallery display historic farm equipment, textile arts such as quilting and weaving, material culture of pioneer Alabama, the archaeology of Southeastern Native Americans, the military including Civil War and WWI, and Victorian Era in Pike County,” Barley said. “It also gives us a glimpse into the lives of the people who made significant contributions to Pike County in various ways.” By Jaine Treadwell Published 6:22 pm Friday, July 4, 2014 Latest Stories Email the author Next UpBarley said one exhibit features Gov. Charles Henderson and another features, Pike County Sheriff Ben Reeves.“Most people who know anything about Pike County are familiar with Gov. Henderson and Sheriff Reeves,” Barley said. “But people often ask about the Bass Rooms and we have great story to tell about Anne Cloud Bass and how the museum came in possession of two rooms of furniture from the Bass house in Brundidge.”Barley said sharing stories is a favorite pastime of those who work at the museum and those who volunteer. By The Penny Hoarder Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “It’s important to know about the people who have made contributions to Pike County,” she said. “This is the story that we can share about Annie Cloud Bass and her brother, Walter.”Anne Cloud Bass easily could have been mistaken for a Russian peasant.Neither the way she dressed nor her lifestyle indicated that she was the wealthiest woman in the small town of Brundidge.She and her brother, Walter, were the only two children of Fletcher and Sally Hendrick Bass. Annie Cloud was born into a family of privilege. You Might Like ART CAMP For a while, the kids at Art Camp at studio 116 in Brundidge were afraid to start. Until … “It’s… read morecenter_img Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Augustus C. Bass and his wife Mary Ann Douglas Bass came to Pike County from Monroe County, Georgia in 1895. Bass was a Methodist minister and a highly regarded teacher. His son, Fletcher, became a respected and successful businessman in Brundidge.Fletcher Bass’ wish for his son was that he would show a flair for business. Walter ran the Brundidge Mercantile Company along with a construction company. He also dabbled in penny stocks. He believed that a man could amass a good size fortune by buying stock that sold for less than a dollar.Anne Cloud Bass grew up and lived her life knowing that she was well-heeled. She lived her life without a worry or concern about money. And, she certainly didn’t seem to relish having it.Neither Anne Cloud nor her brother ever married. They were the lone heirs to the Bass fortune left by their father. “Miss Annie Cloud” as she was fondly called, was a teacher. She felt teaching was her calling in life and she followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, Augustus C. Bass, both as a teacher and a leader in the Methodist church.It was through her teaching and the example she set in life that Anne Cloud Bass was most influential.She was one of other most knowledgeable teachers to have passed through the doors of Pike County High School. She never taught for money, only for the love of teaching.She had no family at home and graciously and willingly gave of her time to her students. She often stayed after school to tutor those who were having difficulty.Even after her students went off to college, they would come back on weekends and during vacations to seek her advice.Although there is nothing on record, it is believed that Anne Cloud Bass helped fund the education of a large number of young people in the Brundidge community. In character for her, she would have done so in secret.Because she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Anne Cloud Bass was able to travel extensively. She brought back to Brundidge first-hand knowledge of the people and places she had been. She brought the world to the doorsteps of her small, hometown community.She could have lived a life of luxury and privilege but she didn’t. Money was not needed for the things Anne Cloud Bass cherished most –knowledge and someone with whom to share it. She was able to do that as a schoolteacher and a Sunday school teacher.Anne Cloud Bass was killed in an automobile accident in 1974. The Pike Pioneer Museum (Pioneer Museum of Alabama) was named in her will, along with Pike Liberal Arts School and a Bible college in New York.At her brother’s death, the museum received the furnishings in her home. Two rooms at the museum are designated the Bass rooms.Walter Bass died in 1979. He left the entire portion of an estate estimated at $13 million to the Salvation Army, “where it could do the most good.”The City of Brundidge bought the Bass family home on Main Street and renovated it for use as City Hall.

‘Pop!’ goes the robot

first_img <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VxSs1kGZQqc” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/VxSs1kGZQqc/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUu9lQV0XBE” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/cUu9lQV0XBE/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> The entire product is approximately the size of a U.S. quarter, and dozens of these microrobots could be fabricated in parallel on a single sheet.“This takes what is a craft, an artisanal process, and transforms it for automated mass production,” says Pratheev Sreetharan, who co-developed the technique with J. Peter Whitney. Both are Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences doctoral candidates at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).Sreetharan, Whitney, and their colleagues in the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory at SEAS have been working for years to build bio-inspired, bee-sized robots that can fly and behave autonomously as a colony. Appropriate materials, hardware, control systems, and fabrication techniques did not exist prior to the RoboBees project, so each must be invented, developed, and integrated by a diverse team of researchers.Less than a year ago, the group was using a painstaking and error-prone method to fold, align, and secure each of the minuscule parts and joints.“You’d take a very fine tungsten wire and dip it in a little bit of superglue,” explains Sreetharan. “Then, with that tiny ball of glue, you’d go in under a microscope like an arthroscopic surgeon and try to stick it in the right place.”“Until recently, the manual assembly process was the state of the art in this field,” Sreetharan adds.Folding joints: 22Assembly scaffold folding joints: 115Total device folding joints: 137Brass pads for “glue” points: 52Total number of “glue” points: 24Mass: 90 mgBy mass, one U.S. quarter = 63 Harvard Monolithic BeesThe same result can now be achieved — without human error — through locking mechanisms and dip soldering. The new process also enables the use of cured carbon fiber, which is rigid and easy to align, rather than uncured carbon fiber, which Sreetharan compares to “wet tissue paper.”“Our new techniques allow us to use any material including polymers, metals, ceramics, and composites,” says principal investigator Robert Wood, an associate professor of electrical engineering at SEAS and a core faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard.“The ability to incorporate any type and number of material layers, along with integrated electronics, means that we can generate full systems in any three-dimensional shape,” Wood says. “We’ve also demonstrated that we can create self-assembling devices by including pre-stressed materials.”[sidebar id=”102887″]The implications of this novel fabrication strategy go far beyond these micro-air vehicles. The same mass-production technique could be used for high-power switching, optical systems, and other tightly integrated electromechanical devices that have parts on the scale of micrometers to centimeters.Moreover, the layering process builds on the manufacturing process currently used to make printed circuit boards, which means that the tools for creating large sheets of pop-up devices are common and abundant. It also means that the integration of electrical components is a natural extension of the fabrication process — particularly important for the size- and weight-constrained RoboBees project.“In a larger device, you can take a robot leg, for example, open it up, and just bolt in circuit boards. We’re so small that we don’t get to do that. I can’t put a structural mechanism in here and have it serve no electrical function.”Pointing to the carbon-fiber box truss that constitutes the pop-up bee’s body frame, Sreetharan says, “Now, I can put chips all over that. I can build in sensors and control actuators.”Essentially, tiny robots can now be built by slightly bigger robots. Designing how all the layers will fit together and fold, however, is still a very human task, requiring creativity and expertise. Standard computer-aided design (CAD) tools, typically intended for either flat, layered circuit boards or 3-D objects, do not yet support devices that combine both.Once the design is complete, though, fabrication can be fully automated, with accuracy and precision limited only by the machining tools and materials.“The alignment is now better than we can currently measure,” says Sreetharan. “I’ve verified it to better than 5 microns everywhere, and we’ve gone from a 15 percent yield to — well, I don’t think I’ve ever had a failure.”The full fabrication process is described in the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering. Co-authors, beside Whitney, Sreetharan, and Wood, include Kevin Ma, a graduate student at SEAS; and Marc Strauss, a research assistant in Wood’s lab.The Harvard Office of Technology Development is now developing a strategy to commercialize this technology. As part of this effort, the office has filed patent applications on this work and is engaging with entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and companies to identify disruptive applications in a range of industries.The work was supported by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, the National Science Foundation (through the Expeditions in Computing program), and the Wyss Institute.center_img A new technique inspired by elegant pop-up books and origami will soon allow clones of robotic insects to be mass-produced by the sheet.Devised by engineers at Harvard, the ingenious layering and folding process enables the rapid fabrication of not just microrobots, but a broad range of electromechanical devices.In prototypes, 18 layers of carbon fiber, Kapton (a plastic film), titanium, brass, ceramic, and adhesive sheets have been laminated together in a complex, laser-cut design. The structure incorporates flexible hinges that allow the three-dimensional product — just 2.4 millimeters tall — to assemble in one movement, like a pop-up book.last_img read more

IMB: Pirates Fire at Tanker, Bulker off Nigeria

first_imgArmed pirates attempted to attack two ships in two separate incidents off Nigeria last week, the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre said.On January 24, 2019, a product tanker was fired upon while underway, around 35 nautical miles south of Brass.The general alarm was raised, non-essential crews mustered in citadel and vessel conducted evasive maneuvers. Due to the hardening measures, the pirates moved away.The second incident occurred some 45 nautical miles south of Brass on January 25 when up to seven armed pirates in a skiff chased and fired upon a bulk carrier underway.After raising the alarm, the crew switched on deck lights, increased the vessel’s speed and mustered in citadel.Armed guards onboard the vessel managed to repel the attempted attack, according to the IMB ICC.The Gulf of Guinea saw a significant new spike in violence in the last quarter of 2018. Vessels have been boarded by pirates well outside territorial waters, with crew kidnapped and taken into Nigeria where they are held for ransom. In the last three months of 2018, a total of 41 kidnappings were recorded in Nigerian waters alone.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
