DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 The John Land Apopka Community Trust announced today that Richard Anderson resigned as its President on April 27, 2016.John Ricketson, who has served as Vice President for the Trust, was named interim President.Other Board Actions:The Trust Board appointed three new Board members; Bill Arrowsmith, former Apopka Commissioner; Johnny Land, son of former Mayor John Land; and Robert Manley, former Apopka Chief of Police.The Board also nominated Michelle Hinden. Hinden is an attorney in Apopka and is expected to join the Trust’s Board at the next meeting.The Board approved two $500 contributions. One to the Apopka High School Debate to help cover the cost of traveling to the 2016 National Speech & Debate Tournament in Utah. The other grant went to the Apopka Little league to help defray costs associated with hosting the Little League Regional Championships in July.A committee was established by the Board and charged with drafting a policy with specific criteria to be used to evaluate future funding requests. The committee is expected to present its first draft at the next Board meeting which is scheduled for July 13, 2016.It has been a tumultuous stretch of weeks for Anderson. On April 5th, Anderson was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run incident in Lake County. Later in April the victim of that incident named him in a lawsuit, and it was learned that the Florida Highway Patrol listed him as a person-of-interest in a criminal investigation regarding the same incident. Yesterday a warrant for his arrest was issued, and Anderson turned himself in to authorities. He is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and tampering with evidence.The Board was not aware of the April 5th incident or the resulting lawsuit until word surfaced in the media in May, according to David Rankin, Secretary for the Trust.The John Land Apopka Community Trust Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded on February 8th, 2013 in honor of Mayor John Land to serve the greater Apopka communityAccording to its website, its mission is ‘to serve the greater Apopka community and its citizens through philanthropic funding and encouragement, scholastic achievement through scholarships and sponsorship, city and community betterment and development, and to help give support to worthwhile charitable needs.’Anyone wanting to apply for funding can do so on the Trust’s website.To date, the Trust’s primary fundraising has been on a project-by-project basis. Currently it is “selling” bricks to provide funding for the statues of Mayor Land. More on that project here.The Trust is a Public Charity and is subject to Section 501(c)3 of the IRS code. While it works closely with The City of Apopka and other governmental entities, it operates independently of those entities, and is governed by a Board of Directors.

Dungeness beach is a classic example of ‘Non-Plan’ and the houses that populate the beach have developed through improvisation and bodge. This scheme develops this tradition in a way that responds to the drama and harshness of the landscape.El Ray is part of a group of five beach houses located immediately to the east of the huge Dungeness A power station. The original house consisted of a 19th century railway carriage with flimsy lean tos to the north and south. It was in extremely poor condition and too small to accommodate our clients and their growing family. We were asked by our clients to increase the accommodation area by approximately 50%, and dramatically improve the environmental performance of the house.Save this picture!Section and PlanThe new house incorporates the old railway carriage inside a highly insulated timber structure. The carriage forms the centre point of the main living area and accommodates the kitchen. A fully glazed southern elevation gives views out over the channel and a series of smaller slot windows on the other elevations give focused views of the adjacent lighthouse, coastguard station and nuclear power station.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesThe sloping roof deck acts as an observation platform with extraordinary 360 degree views of the beach and the sea. The plan incorporates two courtyards to provide shelter from the constant wind.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesEnvironmental PerformanceEnvironmental control is achieved through a combination of super insulation, passive solar gain, cross ventilation and a wind turbine.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesThe high levels of insulation in the walls, roof and floor ensure that heat loss from the building is minimal and very little energy is required for heating, lighting and ventilation. External glazing consists of a combination of double-glazed, low ‘E’, argon- filled frameless fixed lights and thermally-broken, aluminium sliding doors. The structural timber frame is constructed from lightweight engineered timber I-Joists, braced inside and out with a sheathing material manufactured entirely from wood waste. The insulation between the I-joists and studs is made from recycled newspaper. The external cladding and decking is made from an FSC certified hardwood called Itauba and the internal wall linings, floors and all joinery are constructed from FSC certified birch plywood.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesA canopy projects out over the south deck to shade the living areas from the high summer sun, but allows the low winter sun to warm the house. When necessary a wood-burning stove, using drift wood from the beach, is used to supplement the passive solar gain in the winter months and in extremely cold conditions electric under floor heating, powered by the wind turbine, will heat the two bedrooms and the bathroom.Save this picture!Courtesy of Simon Conder AssociatesIt is anticipated that the during the year the wind turbine will generate more electricity than the house will consume, meaning that the house can be run at carbon negative. The client intends to sell any surplus electricity generated by the wind turbine back to the National Grid.Save this picture!ElevationsProject gallerySee allShow lessPassion House M1 / Arhitekt 11Selected ProjectsBoulevards in Paris: A Mathematical Success?Architecture News Share Houses CopyHouses•Kent, United Kingdom 2008 CopyAbout this officeSimon Conder AssociatesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKentMies van der Rohe AwardHousesUnited KingdomPublished on August 19, 2013Cite: “El Ray / Simon Conder Associates” 19 Aug 2013.

A 125-year old brick dairy has been carefully integrated into the design, supporting a new first floor whose structural steel extends beyond the building defining an outdoor terrace below. The original facade of the dairy sits in the foreground bringing a unique yet charming character to the building’s architecture.Save this picture!© Dean BradleyThe brick dairy, constructed in 1894 before the residence, has a character rarely encountered that we not only wanted to preserve but introduce into the design. Subsequently, a series of undeniably unique structures, elements, details, and spaces have been created that are directly related to the dairy’s retention. With double brick walls on all sides absorbing sound and its location at the rear of the property, the dairy was the perfect option to locate the music studio. Being a professional musician, one of the owners needed to both practice and teach music from home.Save this picture!© Dean BradleyAs both owners regularly worked from home, there also needed to be alternatives to the dairy that could provide this function. To accommodate this lifestyle, or other family members finding their own place of solace, the concept of separating the everyday living spaces evolved – a departure from the open plan scenario that is often requested in a project brief. The origin of this concept of separation essentially begins in the stair void, this space distributing one to their preferred space of privacy including the living room, study nook, dining booth, music studio (dairy), and the upstairs retreat – all destinations in their own right.Save this picture!© Dean BradleyIt is not every day you find an aging dairy in the kitchen or the dining room. There is a unique ambiance present in these spaces that only a building of this age can bring, though difficult to describe it is one the owners can experience every single day. Ultimately, the dairy provides a permanent glimpse of not only the history of the property but also to the suburb of Footscray. Importantly, this juxtaposition between this historical building and the adjacent spaces is carefully crafted through a material palette that highlights the dairy’s features yet is synthetic to its original facade.Save this picture!© Dean BradleySave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Dean BradleyThe first-floor addition sits upon a large component of the dairy resulting in a rear facade that is not something you will see very often. The dairy sits in the foreground, its original facade and windows bringing a unique character to the built form of the project. The dairy’s original doors and windows have been retained on all facades, emphasising the concept of the old meeting the new. Although this concept is far from unique in itself, the method in which it has been implemented and the resulting building and its spaces are, unquestionably, a one-off.Save this picture!© Dean BradleyProject gallerySee allShow lessBrick House / Douglas & CompanySelected ProjectsArchitects, not Architecture – Virtual Event 01Lecture Share Save this picture!© Dean Bradley+ 35Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941789/dairy-house-dan-gayfer-design Clipboard Landscape: Photographs Year: Dairy House / Dan Gayfer DesignSave this projectSaveDairy House / Dan Gayfer Design Topp Constructs Houses 2019 Dairy House / Dan Gayfer Design Dan Gayfer Design CopyAbout this officeDan Gayfer DesignOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFootscrayOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on June 17, 2020Cite: “Dairy House / Dan Gayfer Design” 17 Jun 2020.

La resistencia está aumentando para luchar contra las atrocidades estadounidenses contra in/migrantes y refugiadxs, con marchas masivas convocadas para el 30 de junio. Participando en esas protestas, incluyendo en la frontera EUA/México en McAllen, Texas, está el nuevo grupo FIRE, que emitió el siguiente llamado:Las noticias recientes de la frontera han sido imposibles de ignorar, incluso para quienes normalmente excusarían la guerra contra lxs inmigrantes. Lxs progenitores lloran cuando sus hijxs son arrancados de sus brazos para llevarlos a campos de concentración y colocarlos en jaulas. Una mujer guatemalteca indígena desarmada recibe un disparo en la cabeza por parte de la Patrulla Fronteriza. Una mujer trans que huye de la violencia patriarcal es dejada morir en una llamada “caja de hielo”.Pero, ¿es esta inhumanidad y destrucción de familias nuevas en este país? ¿Cuántas familias fueron destruidas por el genocidio y el desplazamiento forzado de las naciones indígenas de este país? Durante la esclavitud, lxs africanos fueron subastados después de ser arrancados de sus familias y encadenadxs. En la década de 1940, los EUA forzaron a lxs inmigrantes japoneses y sus descendientes a ingresar en campos de internamiento. En los últimos tiempos, el sistema penitenciario, con fines de lucro o administrado por el gobierno, ha separado millones de sus familias y comunidades.FIRE es un movimiento multinacional y multi-género de base formado por defensorxs de los derechos de lxs inmigrantes, estudiantes, profesores, sindicalistas, socialistas, del Movimiento las Vidas Negras Importan, antiimperialistas y otrxs activistas. Creemos que no solo el Partido Republicano tiene la culpa de esta crisis, sino también el Partido Demócrata. Lxs inmigrantes han sido forzados ingresar a EUA y Europa debido a las políticas tramadas en Washington y Wall Street. Y la única solución es la gente luchando en su propio nombre.El objetivo de FIRE (fuego) es derretir ICE (hielo). No para reformarlo, ni cambiar su gestión, ni ninguna otra medida a medias. Para luchar por lxs in/migrantes, debemos deshacernos por completo de ICE. Significa desmantelar los campos de concentración para inmigrantes y derribar cualquier pared fronteriza racista que Trump intente construir. Luchar por lxs refugiados significa entender que muchxs in/migrantes huyen de las condiciones en sus países creados por EUA. Y debemos entender el carácter global de esta crisis.La raíz de la migración en esta era es el imperialismo, la etapa más alta del desarrollo capitalista. Ya sea a través de guerras y ataques militares en Medio Oriente, golpes de extrema derecha en Honduras en 2009 y Brasil en 2016, o agotando su riqueza para que los países no puedan responder a los desastres naturales, como el terremoto en Haití, el imperialismo crea las condiciones por las cuales lxs in/migrantes y refugiadxs están huyendo.La clase dominante también crea refugiadxs por su completo desprecio por el medio ambiente, mientras inundaciones, tormentas y la expansión de los desiertos desplazan a millones. El cambio climático y la austeridad capitalista se combinaron para devastar a Puerto Rico, dejando alrededor de 5,000 muertes y desplazando decenas de miles más.Este tratamiento criminal no es exclusivo de los Estados Unidos. Al tratar lxs refugiados de pasar a los países vecinos, muchos estados europeos confiscan sus objetos de valor antes de llevarlos a campamentos. Los países imperialistas compiten por mano de obra barata y recursos naturales al mismo tiempo que cooperan para negar la humanidad más básica a sus víctimas.La clase trabajadora de este país no se ha mantenido en silencio. Ha habido manifestaciones en ciudades por todo el país, incluyendo ocupaciones de los centros de ICE, y hay un sinnúmero más de estas planificadas para las próximas semanas.Ante el poder de la clase trabajadora, la administración Trump ha emitido apresuradamente una orden ejecutiva, esperando pacificar la creciente resistencia de la gente. Pero los hechos son obstinados, y esta llamada “retractación” dista mucho de haber terminado con la política de separación familiar.Trump espera resolver la crisis reemplazando los campos de concentración de niñxs con los de la familia, ¡como si el problema no fueran los campos de concentración! Al mismo tiempo, incrementó la pena por el cruce fronterizo “ilegal” de una ofensa civil a una criminal. Una vez que lxs progenitores han sido condenados por una ofensa criminal, ¡el estado nuevamente tiene libertad para llevarse a sus hijxs! La orden ejecutiva también apunta a permitir que lxs inmigrantes sean detenidos indefinidamente, y le pide al Pentágono que abra campamentos en bases militares.El Partido Demócrata y sus leales medios corporativos parecen estar contentos con esta “solución”, siempre que sea seguida con una victoria electoral en noviembre. Los demócratas están desesperados por presentarse a sí mismos como los defensores de las familias de inmigrantes cuando, en realidad, fueron entusiastas partícipes en la creación de este horror. Incluso, más allá del récord de Obama “deportador-en-jefe” sobre el tema, que incluye la construcción de muchos de estos centros de detención en primer lugar, o la ley de la era Clinton que redujo drásticamente el umbral para la deportación, lxs demócratas siempre han sido cómplices del imperialismo estadounidense.Le toca a lxs trabajadores y oprimidxs de este país luchar por la terminación de estos crímenes y por la liberación del sistema que nos trajo aquí. No nos engañan las medidas parciales y una cara más suave de los campos de concentración. Exhortamos a la clase trabajadora multinacional y multi-género de este país a unirse a nosotrxs para desmantelar el ICE y el sistema imperialista racista, sexista, homofóbico y transfóbico que lo creó.Le pedimos que nos ayude a hacer algo simple, aunque no sea fácil: Luchar por In/migrantes y Refugiados por Doquier (FIRE).* Luchemos por In/migrantes y Refugiadxs por DoquierPara contactar a FIRE: sitio web ourfire.net, email [email protected], dirección postal FIRE, c/o Solidarity Center, 147 West 24 Street, New York, NY, 10011, o llame al 212-633-6646.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Planetary wave activity at quasi 16-, 10- and 5-day periods has been compared at various altitudes through the middle and upper atmosphere over Halley (76degreesS, 27degreesW), Antarctica, during the austral winters of 1997-1999. Observational data from the mesosphere, E-region ionosphere and F-region ionosphere have been combined with stratospheric data from the ECMWF assimilative operational analysis. Fourier and wavelet techniques have shown that the relationship between planetary wave activity at different altitudes is complex and during the winter eastward wind regime does not conform to a simple combination of vertical planetary wave propagation and critical filtering. Strong planetary wave activity in the stratosphere can coincide with a complete lack of wave activity at higher altitudes; conversely, there are also times when planetary wave activity in the mesosphere, E-region or F-region has no apparent link to activity in the stratosphere. The latitudinal activity pattern of stratospheric data tentatively suggests that when the stratospheric signatures are intense over a wide range of latitudes, propagation of planetary waves into the mesosphere is less likely than when the stratospheric activity is more latitudinally restricted. It is possible that, on at least one occasion, 16-day planetary wave activity in the mesosphere may have been ducted to high latitudes from the lower latitude stratosphere. The most consistent feature is that planetary wave activity in the mesosphere is almost always anti-correlated to planetary wave activity in the E-region even though the two are in close physical proximity. The oscillatory critical filtering of vertical gravity wave propagation by planetary waves and the re-generation of the planetary wave component at higher altitudes through subsequent critical filtering or breaking of the gravity waves may provide an explanation for some of these characteristics. Alternatively the nonlinear interaction between planetary waves and tides, indicated in the E-region data, may play a role.
