A small home overlooking a picturesque valley in the Hawksbury region just outside of Sydney that has been designed as a retreat from the inner city. The home is configured out of two pavilions that are sited along the contours, with all spaces orienting themselves specifically to the landscape. It responds to the Australian bush, with predominately natural materials used throughout and clad in a locally sourced hardwood. Mute natural tones of the timber and concrete blend the house into the site, nestling it back into the trees. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rory Brooks ArchitectsThe client wanted a quiet escape from the inner city where he lives and also a place to entertain. The entertaining and living pavilion is orientated around the pool and kitchen so days and nights can be spent eating, drinking and swimming. The bedroom pavilion is quieter with more intimate views of the landscape, a place of quiet and escape. There is home study with full bookcase and a large framed view of the trees beyond where the client can spend time working away from the city. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rory Brooks ArchitectsThe dwelling has been designed as a passive solar design that is energy efficient, deep overhangs protect the windows and screens are on the northern and western facades. The house is designed to be fully operable, with good cross ventilation from the valley on hot days as well as having strong solar access in the winter time. Save this picture!Courtesy of Rory Brooks ArchitectsThere is minimal impact on the site and the local environment. An extensive use of locally sourced materials and craftsmen was used throughout and an efficient structural solution was adopted with composite timber beams and double walls to increase the thermal performance. It is set along the contours with the levels of the house determined so that no removal or addition of earth was required during construction. The house is pushed back into the trees so that it is not seen from any of the roads and has minimal visual impact on the valley.

CUNY workers say: ‘Resist austerity!’

first_imgHolding a huge, electrified banner reading “Resist austerity,” while chanting to the rhythm of a brass band, hundreds of members of the Professional Staff Congress marched from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York to a board of trustees’ meeting at Baruch College on Dec. 4. They were making it clear that they do not want to wait six years for a new contract to get significant pay raises.In particular, the PSC wants adjuncts — the part-time instructors who do over 50 percent of the instruction at CUNY — to get a pay increase to a minimum of $7,000 per class. Currently, the best-paid adjuncts get about $4,500 per class.The PSC represents about 30,000 full-time and part-time teachers, as well as professional staff — librarians, registrars and computer programmers — who educate 500,000 students at CUNY. It took six years for the board of trustees to agree to its last contract with the PSC.Contingents from Local One, Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE); the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees DC 37; the Union of Clerical Staff (UCATS) at New York University; and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists joined the march.A noticeable feature of the protest was the significant support given fast food workers who are organizing a union at seven CUNY campuses with the support of the Department Store Union (RWDSU).FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Morar also wants the FSB to be forced to take all necessary steps to remove the obstacles to her return to Russia.The lawyer, Yuri Kostanov, filed the petition on 14 February. A hearing is to be held on 17 March. He told the privately-owned Interfax news agency that the FSB broke the law in several ways. “When you prepare to expel someone, an entire series of decisions, in particular, decisions concerning a permanent employment, have to be taken and the person has to be informed, but Natalia Morar was given no notification of this kind,” he said.Furthermore, no grounds were given for the deportation, Kostanov said. The authorities just cited article 27 of a 1996 law concerning movements in and out of Russia, which says foreigners can be denied entry if they pose a threat to security or public health.Morar was denied entry at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport on 16 December, when she returned with a group of journalists from a press trip to Israel. After being told by FSB officials that she was “undesirable” and was not authorised to reenter Russia, she was put a flight to Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, where she is from.Read previous article about Natalia Morar RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” News BelarusEurope – Central Asia last_img read more

The vEPC market is gaining traction due to the evolution of cellular network technology, which has offered higher data speeds and lower latency. The vEPC market is gaining traction due to its cloud native and virtual machine based architecture that will improve the modularity of products.

As the vEPC market is in its initial phase of NSA deployment of 5G network, most vendors are not capable of providing a NSA solution and its associate services to the customers. This enforces them to manage a few of the services from vendors who are experts in providing those to deliver the required services to the customers. Enterprises segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period Enterprises are undergoing digital transformation across different industries. Businesses are in various stages of implementing new technologies to develop new solutions, improve service delivery, increase operational efficiency, reduce cost, gain competitive advantage, and meet rising customer expectations. 5G will soon make it into the list of technologies enterprise will consider, with NSA 5G solutions that will enable various new industrial applications, such as robotics, big data analytics, IIoT and AR/VR in engineering and design, as well as new ways to provide remote support and training. Asia-Pacific (APAC) region to record the highest growing region in the vEPC market APAC has several growing economies, such as China, Australia and Japan, which are expected to register high growth in the vEPC market. These countries have always supported and promoted industrial and technological growth. In addition, they possess a developed technological infrastructure, which is promoting the adoption of vEPC solutions across all industry verticals. The network market in APAC is driven by the growing acceptance of cloud-based solutions, emerging technologies such as the IoT, and big data analytics and mobility.

The Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport also received a similar threat, county officials said. Like the other bomb threats across the region and country, the threat was deemed not credible.The Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport received a bomb threat at about 1 p.m. Thursday, county public information officer Marcia Lynch said in a statement.The airport followed an emergency plan it had in place and alerted the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office and federal authorities, Airport Director Mike Hall said.“Fortunately it was not a credible threat,” Hall said. He said the safety of their passengers, staff, and others at the airport is their top priority. “We took the threat seriously and acted accordingly while we worked to determine if it was legitimate or not.” Kelsey O’Connor Law enforcement searched the terminal and “confirmed the security of the facility,” Lynch said. Multiple federal and local agencies deemed this a non-credible threat, Lynch said. She also said the county is reviewing the incident and its response.Bomb threats were reported across the region and country Thursday, local and national outlets reported. According to the Washington Post, the FBI issued a statement Thursday that said it was aware of the recent bomb threats “made in cities around the country, and we remain in touch with our law enforcement partners to provide assistance. As always, we encourage the public to remain vigilant and to promptly report suspicious activities which could represent a threat to public safety.”Hall said the threat was emailed to the airport and was similar to other extortion-like emails businesses and organizations received Thursday. CNN included an email sent to a business owner in Oklahoma on Thursday, which was similar to others reported. The email demanded $20,000 via bitcoin and threatened that an explosive device would go off if they did not pay the amount requested.Syracuse and Onondaga County received several bomb threats Thursday, according to Syracuse.com. At least nine were reported in Syracuse.Lt. Daniel Donahue, public information officer for the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office, said they are not aware of any other similar threats within Tompkins County.

Woman reveals she is a perfect match, will donate kidney to her neighbor

first_imgChristine Courtney(SYLVANIA, Ohio) — An Ohio father and grandfather who is in desperate need of a new kidney was surprised with the news that his neighbor and longtime family friend will give him her kidney on “Good Morning America” today.Nancy Seigneur, 52, surprised Dave Courtney, 63, her decades-long neighbor in Sylvania, Ohio, with the news that she is a perfect match and will donate her kidney to him.“I’m speechless,” said Courtney, who has been living with a serious kidney disease since 1990.“I wanted to help,” said Seigneur. “This is the way I can do this, for Dave. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”In April of this year, Courtney’s kidney condition worsened and his doctors forced him to go on dialysis.“Dave and Chris, they’re very private about it,” Seigneur said of Courtney and his wife, Christine, adding that her family and theirs “instantly became friends” when they moved into the neighborhood.“They’re not going to be pity party or poor me or anything,” she added. “They would never ask for help. Never.”Dave Courtney was put on a transplant waiting list three years ago, but so far has had no calls.“He’s definitely worried, and I think you know the uncertainty of not knowing, ‘Am I going to get a kidney?’” Christine Courtney said.His wife added that when he was put on dialysis, “He was definitely scared … I could tell by the look in his eyes.”Seven days a week he is on the dialysis machine, as well as all night while he sleeps.“I have an amazing husband,” Christine Courtney said. “And I certainly would welcome anyone who would be willing to donate a kidney for him … There’s not any better gift than that.”Dave Courtney said the love of his grandchildren helps him to stay strong.“We’re going to be okay,” he said. “I’m pretty sure of that.”“I’m very positive in my belief that there’ll be a positive outcome of this,” he added.Nancy Seigneur said she thinks, “maybe Dave was put in my life for a reason.”A few weeks ago, Nancy Seigneur tested to see if she and her neighbor and friend would be a positive match so she could donate her kidney.“I jumped at the chance to do this, not knowing that I was going to be a match,” she said. “You’re thinking, ‘How could I be a match … and I am! I am a match!’”“I am the donor for Dave and I am so excited for him to find out, and for this to happen and for him to have a great life,” Nancy Seigneur said prior to the surprise.“I’ve never been hesitant at all to do this,” she added. “He’s worth every ounce of it.”For more information about kidney donation or transplantation for a loved one, visit the Alliance for Paired Kidney Donation, the organization that connected “GMA” to Seigneur and Courtney’s story.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Major blast of cold air moves into Northeast after winter storm delivers snow, ice

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — A powerful storm continues to move through the Northeast on Sunday, after it brought up to 15 inches of snow in the Midwest and three reported tornadoes in the South.The winter storm will dump snowfall totals of 10 to 20 inches in parts of the Northeast before moving out of the region later in the day on Sunday. In the wake of the storm, temperatures in the Northeast will drop nearly 40 degrees as an arctic blast settles over the eastern U.S.Select snowfall totals as of Sunday morning:Heron Lake, Minnesota: 15 inchesBluffton, Iowa: 14 inchesMansfield, Ohio: 10.5 inchesMcHenry, Illinois: 10 inchesStormstown, Pennsylvania: 9 inchesStaffordville, Connecticut: 4.2 inchesProvidence, Rhode Island: 4 inchesPresident Donald Trump on Sunday urged Americans “to be careful and try staying in your house.”“Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold,” he tweeted. “Amazing how big this system is.”The president, who has at times denied climate change, added, “Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!”Heavy snow is showing on the radar Sunday morning from Ohio to Maine with the heaviest bands over much of New York state. Snowfall rates there are estimated to be at 1 to 2 inches per hour. A mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow is currently falling across parts of the Lower Hudson Valley into much of Connecticut and southern Massachusetts.Very heavy rain is falling farther south in New York City and Philadelphia. New flood alerts are being issued for parts of the New York and Philadelphia metro areas, due to the possibility of 1 to 2 inches of rain. Additionally, coastal flooding is a concern through the day from New Jersey to Massachusetts.Strong winds are likely from the Tennessee Valley all the way to Florida on Sunday. Behind the storm is the very cold air that is already moving into the Midwest and is on the way to the Northeast, where new wind chill alerts have been issued for many major Northeast cities.Additional snowfall on Sunday is expected to be confined mainly to the interior Northeast, with over 12 more inches of snow still to come in parts of New York, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire. Locally, over a quarter of an inch of ice is also possible across parts of the Lower Hudson Valley, Connecticut and Massachusetts. Snow totals in the interior Northeast should top out at approximately 10 to 20 inches.The storm is pulling in a lot of mild air to Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; and New York, which is keeping the snow and mixed precipitation north and west of these cities. However, the danger is not over yet.As the storm slides east, it will begin to drag the very cold air behind it. The clash of colder and milder air will increase winds significantly as the day goes on. Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia; and New York all are seeing temperatures in the 40s and even 50s on Sunday morning.However, by early afternoon, temperatures will come crashing down.By Sunday night, the actual air temperature will crash into the single digits and teens across the Interstate 95 corridor. In interior parts of the Northeast, temperatures will go below zero with a fresh snow pack. After starting Sunday in the 40s and 50s from Washington to New York, temperatures will have dropped 40 to nearly 50 degrees by Sunday night.Everything that has fallen, from snow to rain, will freeze over. This could make traveling dangerous Sunday night and Monday morning. This situation, called a flash freeze, can make it harder to treat some road surfaces.The Northeast is not alone in dealing with brutal cold. The central U.S. is seeing wind chills in the teens all the way down to the Mississippi Valley on Sunday.Gusty winds and very low temperatures will cause wind chills of minus 10 to minus 20 across the Northeast, including Philadelphia, New York and Boston.Even during the day on Monday, wind chills will not rise above zero for much of the Northeast. It will be downright brutal nearly the entire day. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
