Its topography, the necessity of respecting the neighbour’s site lines, the many beautiful trees and historically soft soil (the site is in a former creek bed) and numerous zoning difficulties made it unworkable using conventional methods. At least three other developers would not attempt to build upon this property for just these reasons.  Rohan’s goal is to evolve habitations on land ultimately classified as ‘throw-away’ into places of dignity combined with the spirit of place. This property is such a challenge. Save this picture!SectionThe Coxwell House and his first house at 1292 College Street (‘Triangle 1292’) are living examples of his work. Consciously building on marginalized land Rohan Walters creates simple dignity of habitation embodying the spirit of home.Save this picture!Courtesy of Rohan WalterThe Coxwell House is a three story, 40 foot tall, 800 square foot, two-bedroom, resin – impregnated plywood house. This multicoloured building will measure approximately 16 feet by 16 feet that will stand on four steel posts. Access to and from the street will be via a 32 foot long bridge. The interior will feature two full bedrooms, a four piece bathroom, combined open space kitchen, dining room and living area, and eventually to have green rooftop . Save this picture!DiagramsPassive cooling and heating will be designed into the structure to minimize utility expenses. Hot water radiant in-floor heating of a concrete floor (the thermo-mass) will further economize on winter expenses. In warm weather the building uses the stack effect drawing air in at the bottom and pulling it through the building and venting it out the top. The air travels over the cooler concrete floors as well as acting as a cool breeze on the resident’s skin drawing the heat out through the rooftop vent. The Coxwell House will be a livable, comfortable and an instantly recognizable home.Project gallerySee allShow lessSilo-top Studio / O-OFFICE ArchitectsSelected ProjectsThe Gravity Stool by Jólan van der Wiel, magnetic innovationArticles Share Houses Architects: Rohan Walter Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Year:  The Coxwell House / Rohan Walter CopyAbout this officeRohan WalterOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoHousesCanadaPublished on March 27, 2014Cite: “The Coxwell House / Rohan Walter” 27 Mar 2014.

The arrest of Arabji, who is due to appear in court on 8 June, has only now been drawn to the organisation’s attention. News Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the detention of Kareem Arbaji, a young business consultant, for the past 12 months because of comments he posted on the online discussion forum Akhawia (http://www.akhawia.net/). The arrest of Arabji, who is due to appear in court on 8 June, has only now been drawn to the organisation’s attention.“Arbaji’s arrest means that a total of three cyber-dissidents are being held in Syria,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His detention for the past year is further evidence of the government’s systematic repression of online freedom. He was arrested on 7 June 2007, but that was not the first time he was summoned for questioning about his online activities. We call on the authorities to stop hounding Internet users.”Aged 31 and a graduate in accountancy from Damascus University, he was managing a business consultancy when he was arrested in the utmost secrecy on 7 June 2007. He is currently being held in a military prison in Saydnaya, north of the capital.During a hearing on 20 March, he was charged with spreading false information under article 286 of the criminal code, which punishes “any person who disseminates information considered false or exaggerated and which is liable to undermine national morale.”Two other cyber-dissidents are currently being held in Syria on the same charge. They are writer and poet Firas Saad, who was arrested in November 2006 for criticising the government on the website Al Hiwar Al Moutamaden, which means “Modern Discussion,” and blogger Tariq Biassi, 22, who was arrested in July 2007 because of an online comment very critical of the government.Participants in the Akhawia (http://www.akhawia.net/) discussion forum often criticise the authorities. The government systematically filters opposition websites and Akhawia is on its blacklist. Another 100 websites were blocked in December 2007. Under regulations that took effect in July 2007, website owners are required to keep the personal data of everyone who posts articles and comments on their sites.

$4 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf – Quotes and Recap – Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Nov. 5, 2016) – Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier and Michael Tabor’s Highland Reel went to the front shortly after the break, opened a huge lead on the run down the backstretch and had more than enough to hold off favored Flintshire by 1 ¾ lengths to win the 33rd running of the $4 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Turf (G1) for 3-year-olds and up on Saturday afternoon at Santa Anita Park. On Found: “Ryan (Moore) said he got the filly in a good position, but the winner obviously got away from us. She finished well.” Fifth-place trainer Peter Eurton (Ashleyluvssugar) – “That horse got away and he didn’t seem to have his punch, but of course this is the Breeders’ Cup, so it could be that he just got outrun to a respectable fifth.” It was the seventh victory for the partnership of owners in the World Championships and third in the Turf with the other wins coming with Found last year and St Nicholas Abbey in 2011.It is Heffernan’s first Breeders’ Cup win and the 11th for O’Brien with six of them coming in the Turf. O’Brien’s other Turf winners are High Chapparal (2002-03), St Nicholas Abbey, Magician (2013) and Found. Second-place trainer Chad Brown (Flintshire, favorite) – “Naturally, I’m disappointed with the outcome, but I was very proud of his race today.  The course is very, very firm and when you have a classy horse (Highland Reel) like that alone on the lead,  it’s dangerous.    We had no excuses.” HIGHLAND REEL POURS IT ON TO WIN LONGINES BREEDERS’ CUP TURF Winning and third-place trainer Aiden O’Brien (Highland Reel, 1st and Found, 3rd) – “Seamus (Heffernan) is a great lad. We were quite happy to make the running here. He’s a very good horse and I’m absolutely delighted.”center_img Fourth-place trainer Sir Michael Stoute (Ulysses) – “I was very pleased with his run and Frankie (Dettori) was delighted with him. The first three are seriously good horses. He’ll be a nice horse for next year.” Trained by Aidan O’Brien and ridden by Seamus Heffernan, Highland Reel covered the mile and a half on a firm turf course in 2:23.00. Defending champion Found finished another 2 ¼ lengths back in third. Second-place jockey Javier Castellano (Flintshire, favorite) – “He tried to steal the race and he stole it. Unfortunately, the way it worked out, it was unfortunate for my horse. Usually you don’t see the European horses run so aggressively, open up and carry their speed. Especially at 1 ½ miles but it worked out great for him.” Winning co-owner Derrick Smith (Highland Reel) – “It was great. The race was set up for us with the ground and everything else.” Fourth-place jockey Frankie Dettori (Ulysses) – “He had a great trip. He’s not as tough as the first three, but we’ll come back next year.” LONGINES BREEDERS’ CUP TURF QUOTESlast_img read more

Martin Guptill plays starring role as New Zealand take 2-0 lead vs Pakistan in ODI series

first_imgMartin Guptill struck an unbeaten 86 to power New Zealand to an eight-wicket victory via Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method over Pakistan in the second one day international at Saxton Oval, Nelson on Tuesday.Chasing 247 for a win, New Zealand were rocked early when Colin Munro was dismissed without opening his account on the thid ball of their innings.Guptill and Kane Williamson the added 46 for the second wicket before the skipper was caught by Shadab Khan at the backward point off Faheem Ashraf.However, Guptill continued to play his attacking game and got good support from Ross Taylor, who struck 43-ball 45 not out in a match which was interrupted by rain.New Zealand were 64/2 in 14 overs when rain arrived. After a long delay, play was resumed with the home team getting a revised target of 151 in 25 overs.The duo continued to punish the the Pakistan bowlers with Guptill reaching his fifty with a six. The pair was also involved in an 104-run unbeaten stand for the third wicket as New Zealand reached the target with 7 balls remaining.Earlier, Mohammad Hafeez and tailenders Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan made half-centuries as Pakistan struggled to 246-9, batting first after winning the toss.In a repeat of the first international, which New Zealand won by 61 runs under the Duckworth-Lewis system, Pakistan were always under pressure after losing early wickets and fell short of a par score at Saxton Oval where teams which bat first in ODIs average 260.Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed chose to bowl in the first match at the Basin Reserve and New Zealand went on to score 315-7 and to cruise to victory in a rain-affected match in which Pakistan lost two wickets in their first over.advertisementOn Tuesday Sarfraz took the opposite tack and chose to bat first but the result was the same. Pakistan lost openers Azhar Ali and Imam-ul-Haq, playing in place of the injured Fakhar Zaman, with only 14 runs on the board, then slipped to 39-3.Hafeez tried to play a steadying role with his 33rd half-century in ODIs but Pakistan weren’t able to build partnerships at the top of the order. The best was his 45-run stand with Shoaib Malik (27) for the fourth wicket and when he was out for 60 Pakistan were in trouble at 127-6.Hasan Ali helped save Pakistan with his highest score in any form of cricket and his 70-run partnership with Shadab Khan for the eighth wicket revived a failing innings. Shadab went on to make 52, to match his highest score in ODIs and to drag Pakistan closer to a competitive total.Tim Southee (2-57) and Trent Boult (1-54) both claimed early wickets to give the bowling side the upper hand. Williamson introduced his spinners early and left-armer Mitchell Santner and leg-spinner Todd Astle prevented Pakistan from rebuilding through the middle of the innings.Santner took 1-34 from his 10 overs and Astle claimed the wickets of Malik and captain Sarfraz Ahmed (3) to finish with 2-50 from seven overs.Speedster Lockie Ferguson was also a major contributor with 3-39 from 10 overs.(With inputs from AP)last_img read more

50 Companies for Export MAX III Implementation

first_imgStory Highlights It is geared towards providing focused capacity, advocacy and market penetration support to exporters and export-ready firms. The three-year engagement, which will run until 2022, is being spearheaded by Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO). “So we look at how export-ready these companies are, the viability of the product to go overseas, capacity and ability of the companies to meet additional demand, potential economic impact and sustainability of the business,” he pointed out.Mr. Durrant said that at least a 50 per cent average growth in export is projected over the three years, adding that 90 per cent of the participating entities not exporting at Export Max III’s outset are expected to establish at least one market on completion of the programme.“We expect to generate 15 trade leads per company over the three-year period, and we are projecting that we could have a five per cent average increase in jobs for the participating companies. So this is serious business for companies. We expect them to sell, sell, sell after that initial development programme,” he emphasised.Mr. Durrant said the programme is a plus for participants as “it reduces the time and effort to enter new markets, leading to savings in the cost of undertaking this initiative if they were to do it on their own”.“They are getting the support of three agencies to develop their export capacity, so we expect financial gain for the companies and economic development for the country, which, when combined, will bring about major success,” he stated.last_img read more
