Located adjacent to Lake Winnipeg in the community of Dunnottar, this 4-season cottage was conceived as a modest home away from home for a family of four. A long, linear volume housing the client’s requested program folds onto itself as a means to open views, define private exterior space, capture sunlight and weave around existing trees.Save this picture!© 5468796 Architecture Inc.Site and Intention Situated on a 50 x 140 foot lot within 150 feet of the shore, the project takes advantage of lakefront views offered by a narrow greenway linking the site to a small portion of public beach. Two ancient white spruce trees frame the northern edge of the site, while a 250 year old great oak occupies the southwest corner. A handful of smaller trees line the public lane and several mature timbers are clustered just west of the lot’s centre. These trees are retained and become key visual and environmental reference points. Save this picture!© 5468796 Architecture Inc.As a means to escape the city, Webster Cottage strives to enhance the qualities that cottage life can offer. Engagement with the site’s landscape in a multitude of ways therefore becomes the single most important design strategy. The cottage gives its residents opportunities to bask in direct sun, remain outside and dry in a rainstorm, get up high into the trees, view the lake, and dine outside protected from mosquitos – through such considerations, the dwelling becomes as varied as the site. Save this picture!© 5468796 Architecture Inc.The diverse program paired with a shoe-string budget called for both an energy saving strategy and a simple structural / construction logic. Expansion and Contraction In order to capture the variety of experiences offered by the site, the cottage reaches out to its four corners. Intended for use in all seasons, the building contracts to conserve energy during the coldest winter months, heating only those rooms that are occupied. This seasonal expansion and contraction gives way to both a main, insulated cottage and a series of uninsulated spaces, including water-tight summer and storage rooms, a covered / screened porch, and open-air covered decks. A raised walkway links these spaces on the ground, while a single blanketing roof unifies the main programmatic elements as one cottage. Save this picture!© 5468796 Architecture Inc.Structural Logic In addition to seasonal shifts as a means to save energy costs, the cottage could only be viable by implementing a simple structural logic. Standard stick-frame construction on a 24-inch grid makes up the linear bar of uninsulated structure, while a 30-inch grid is maintained in the 650 sqft main cottage as the structural lines transition across the architectural fold. Complexity is concentrated at this juncture where the single story bar folds back on itself, becoming two storeys. Save this picture!© 5468796 Architecture Inc.Material variations are kept to a minimum to keep costs in line and to emphasize the contrast between the roof surface and the internal spaces .Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessBiomass Power Station / Hinton Cook ArchitectsArticlesBeton Hala Waterfront Center CompetitionArticles Share CopyAbout this office5468796 ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesDunnottarCanadaPublished on March 03, 2011Cite: “Webster Cottage / 5468796 Architecture” 03 Mar 2011.

Aardvark closes, Christ Chapel relocates

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Would you be more willing to attend church or a non-religious meeting if your commute was less than five minutes? Greek GPA ranking shows many sororities out preforming fraternities McGarity said the bar’s location is convenient, but it’s also a familiar environment for non-believers to come to church.“I’ve heard stories where people who were just there at two in the morning and came right back for church,” he said. “I think it’s super awesome.”Christ Chapel’s College Pastor Josh Storie said he thinks the bar is also a cool place because he’s seen students show up that have never gone to the big churches because it seemed scary to them.3 thoughts on why college students don’t attend churchVenngage Infographics“The bar tears down the preconceived notion of what church is because a church isn’t a building,” Storie said. “It’s gathering of God’s people.”The college service at The Aardvark has a rustic feel, McGarity said.“There are some lights and there are some chairs because you makeshift into a church,” he said. “If you ever come, you hear people say we are just a room full of broken people who need a savior. We don’t need anything fancy.”However, this rustic environment wasn’t always the church’s plan.“The Aardvark service was really designed to be a temporary six-month fix to a space problem at the main church, and now it’s been seven years,” Storie said. “It’s sad to see The Aardvark close.”Christ Chapel’s main campus.Photo Courtesy: Josh StorieOnce Storie and his team learned the bar was closing, they tried to buy the building in December, but the landlord wasn’t interested in selling it to them.“It’s an end of a cool era, ” Storie said.But this era doesn’t have to completely end because just about 50 steps behind The Aardvark is a deserted medical clinic that Christ Chapel is planning to bulldoze and build a new place to call home.CHRIST CHAPEL’S NEW LOCATION Venngage Infographics“Our big hope is to just figure out what does the TCU community need,” Storie said. “What would be a blessing for students, faculty, organizations, fraternities, sororities or anyone who is in this community.”People’s opinions on Christ Chapel College Ministry moving Venngage InfographicsFor now, Christ Chapel doesn’t know how big or what the new building is going to look like or offer, but Storie said he’s excited to see what God has in store.“It’s a little bittersweet definitely because this is where we started and I came as a freshman and really found out about Christ Chapel,” McGarity said. “It’s going to be bittersweet, but it will be awesome to have a brand new facility.” Michelle Rosshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michelle-ross/ YesNoIt depends on other thingsNo preference TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Michelle Ross is a senior Journalism and Communication Studies double major from Austin, Texas.

Mungret development can bring big benefits to Limerick

The key reason is demographics. People are having young families, growing families, and have nowhere local to bring them for a quite, safe walk or to play on a swing,” he explained.However, he insists there is more to the Mungret development than swings and roundabouts.“There is a growing realisation that for Limerick to grow economically, we need to attract the top talent in terms of engineers, science professionals and such. The way to do that is make Limerick an attractive place to live and bring up a family. We are competing for talent on an international stage, so we are not just competing with Cork but also Berlin or London,” the Raheen-based councillor told the Limerick Post.As part of the development on the grounds of Mungret College, there are also plans for two primary schools, Gaelscoil Rathin and Limerick East Educate Together that are due for completion and opening in September 2016.A large playground is also planned and tenders are currently being prepared for this aspect of the development.“If you think of the size of the area and then consider we only have one public swing set in the whole area, it shows you the need of the playground and why there is such an interest in this.”Mungret College itself is a protected structure and Cllr Butler hopes the historic building will serve as a community hub for a scout hall, athletics club and older persons clubs.“It is part of an historic location with settlements that were monastic in nature going back centuries on the site. As a community, we need a central hub, a heart which we lack locally and this is our chance for that and I think people locally feel strongly about that,” he said.

The tweet was a response to a comment made by Sonia Gandhi that the prompt caution given by Rahul led to timely arrangement of health infrastructure in the Bhilwara city of Rajasthan, to battle the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.”Sonia Gandhi claims Bhilwara tested 22 lakh people due to Rahul’s warning! Wherever there is Rahul, can exaggeration and maths blunder be behind?”, this was alleged to be the tweet by Malviya. In the aftermath of the tweet, the local police in the Hanumangarh Town had registered a FIR against Malviya and the party president JP Nadda. The same came to be challenged before the bench of Justice Dr. Pushpendra Singh Bhati who has imposed a stay on the FIR and consequent proceedings, qua Nadda. “Effect and operation of the FIR No.216/2020 registered with Police Station Hanumangarh Town, Hanumangarh alongwith entire proceedings pursuant thereto qua the present petitioner shall remain stayed,” the bench ordered. The order was passed after Nadda’s counsel argued that he was merely in control of Malviya’s office and such, had no connection with his personal views so depicted in the tweet. It was contended that the impugned tweet was posted from Malviya’s personal account and Nadda had no role in the same, whatsoever. “The sole averment in the FIR is regarding tweet made by Shri Amit Malviya whereas the present petitioner has no role and simply he has been alleged to be controlling the office of Shri Amit Malviya. Learned Senior Counsel further submits that the tweet has been made from the private account of Amit Malviya and not from the official handle of the organization being headed by the present petitioner,” the court recorded. In view of this submission, the Court held that it was ‘prima facie’ satisfied with the Petitioner’s case. “This Court prima-facie finds that the tweet has been made by Shri Amit Malviya and the present petitioner has no role in tweeting the information in question. The tweet is apparently from the private tweeting handle of Shri Amit Malviya, and therefore, no role at this stage seems to be made out against the present petitioner,” it observed while passing the stay order.  The bench has now issued notices to the concerned authorities, returnable in six weeks.

New Orleans attorney files lawsuit requesting NFL enforce league rule to reverse NFC Championship result after no-call controversy

first_img Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSeanXu/iStock(NEW ORLEANS) — A New Orleans attorney filed a lawsuit Tuesday morning against the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell, on behalf of New Orleans Saints season ticket holders and its fan base, to compel Goodell to enforce a NFL rule that would allow the result of Sunday’s NFC Championship game to be reversed, replayed in its entirety or from the point of the controversial non-call.The civil suit is the latest fallout since what’s been labelled the “most egregious missed call in the history of football,” by ESPN anchor Max Kellerman.The non-call of pass interference on Los Angeles cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, after he made contact with Saints wide receiver Tommylee Lewis in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s Saints-Rams game, with 1:45 left to play, has been widely criticized.“That call makes it first and ten, we’re on our knee three plays, and it’s a game changing call,” Saints’ head coach Sean Payton said in a post-game press conference. The Rams later went on to win the game in overtime.“This lawsuit is about holding the league and Roger Goodell accountable for the blatant (mis)actions of its employees and maintaining the integrity of the NFL,” lawyer Frank J. D’Amico, Jr. wrote in a statement.The lawsuit is a petition to compel the league and Goodell to “enforce its own rules, specifically Rule 17 Section 2 Article 1 which provides three possible remedies to this egregious situation that occurred in the Superdome on Sunday.”According to Rule 17, Section 2, Article 1 of the NFL handbook: “The Commissioner has the sole authority to investigate and take appropriate disciplinary and/or corrective measures if any club action, non-participant interference, or calamity occurs in an NFL game which the Commissioner deems so extraordinarily unfair or outside the accepted tactics encountered in professional football that such action has a major effect on the result of the game.”Article 3 goes on to list the commissioner’s powers which include “…the reversal of a game’s result or the rescheduling of a game, either from the beginning or from the point at which the extraordinary act occurred.”However the rule also states: “The Commissioner will not apply authority in cases of complaints by clubs concerning judgmental errors or routine errors of omission by game officials. Games involving such complaints will continue to stand as completed.”Criticisms of the non-call have been bolstered by Robey-Coleman’s own admission, in a post-game locker room interview, that he believed he committed the penalty and thanked the referees for the non-call.Payton told reporters he had spoken with the league office moments after the game ended and said they admitted the officials blew the call. “I don’t know if there was ever more obvious pass interference,” he said in the press conference.“That is a hollow apology when they take no power to correct it when the commissioner has power to adjust it,” D’Amico told ABC News in a phone interview. “The commissioner has the power to either reverse the results of the game, reschedule the game in its entirety, or from when the extraordinarily unfair act occurred… turn back time to the spot of the penalty that wasn’t called, put the teams back on the field, put 1:49 back on the clock and let the game proceed with a first down and the Saints having one timeout.”D’Amico told ABC News he believes the game had a grossly unfair result. “It’s unheard of when you have three officials staring it down, and wave it down and say we’re not going to do anything about it,” D’Amico said about the missed call.D’Amico called it a “national embarrassment” and alleged the NFL is perpetrating fraud to the public, leaving fans with “no faith in the NFL for fairness despite the leagues own rules to correct such errors.”The NFL did not return ABC News’ request for comment on the lawsuit.New Orleans Saints owner Gayle Benson told ABC News the team has “…been in touch with NFL and will aggressively pursue changes in NFL policies to ensure no team and fan base is ever put in a similar position again.”One New Jersey sportsbook, PointsBet, announced Monday via Twitter it would “refund all wagers” on the spread and money-line bets on the Saints, in the form of betting credits. The company wrote: “One blown call may change a game’s outcome. That doesn’t mean it should change YOUR outcome.”While D’Amico said he is not looking for any money damages, he is hoping for Goodell to answer “why he’s not following the rules.” A hearing is scheduled for next Monday morning in Orleans Parish Civil Court, according to D’Amico.D’Amico says he hopes that Goodell will not hide and run from this and do the right thing, or else the “stain of illegitimacy” and “black eye will be on the NFL from this point forward.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
