The essential nature of architecture by Greene & Greene begins with intense attention to detail and craftsmanship, as their bungalows mark the height of the American Arts and Crafts style. The brothers were inspired by the concept of total design, or gesamtkunstwerk, which was stressed in the German-designed rooms at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase International Exposition in St. Louis. When they met David and Mary Gamble, they already had developed a list of rich couples who commissioned them to design their houses, with generous budgets and relatively free reign.Save this picture!© Alexander Vertikoff”An architect is a builder employing the process of art,” Charles Greene once wrote. This is proven to be their governing belief, not only in the final product but also throughout the process. The brothers were known to veer from the initial blueprints, showing that they were enthralled with transition and process, the blueprints as a point of departure rather than a set of instructions.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe drawings of the house were completed in February of 1908, the site ground-broken in March, and ten months later the house was completed and the first custom-built piece of furniture delivered. The family moved in immediately, and the house and all of it’s specially-designed furnishings were officially finished in 1910.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe early projects of Greene and Greene reflected the traditional tastes of their clients, but in time they achieved recognition for developing the California bungalow to a high art, as well as for creating houses with the quality of fine furniture. The Gamble House represented an American-style which sat amidst an abundance of imitations and interpretations of classical European buildings, the influence for many mansions at the time. It was designed to be very suitable for the southern California climate, with a sleeping porch and beautiful transition spaces from the inside to outdoor patios, a garden and a pond.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tim Street-PorterThe developed style of Greene and Greene is very distinguishable in the design world, as their Japanese inspirations are incorporated into stain glass windows, details carved and formed with wood, joinery and joint pieces traditional to architecture in Japan. The emphasis on the horizontal line, the use of modular units, a taste for the asymmetrical, the absence of clutter, extensive areas of unpainted wood, a preponderance of natural and subdued colors, a close relationship with the outdoors were all key elements of Japanese architecture that are incorporated into the Craftsman style.Save this picture!Courtesy of Tim Street-PorterThe strong ties to the outdoors are brought to the interior as well, through flowers and trees which are engraved in the windows, doors and lanterns. Indigenous Japanese shapes appear throughout the house, in the contour of the dining room table, the cloud lift in the transom bar of each window, the recessed handles on drawers and the ebony frame of the master bedroom furniture.Save this picture!© Mark FiennesThere are also European inspired aspects to the design; the cantilevered second story over the front terrace, window boxes and shingles on exterior walls, the long roof lines and Swiss-like exterior elevation south of the front door, the living room inglenook, and the Gothic fireplace in the den.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffThe original patrons lived in the house until death, and it was continually passed down through the Gamble family until 1966, when it was almost sold to a family who intended to paint the interior teak and mahogany woodwork white. They immediately realized the artistic and architectural importance of this home and deeded it to the city of Pasadena in a joint agreement with the University of Southern California Department of Architecture. Tours are offered now, as the Gamble House is both a museum and a National Historic Landmark.Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffProject gallerySee allShow lessWestern Red Cedar Architectural Design Awards WinnersArticlesThe Atmosphere of Paris Cafes / Nicolas Dorval-Bory + Raphaël BétillonArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/91370/ad-classics-gamble-house-greene-greene Clipboard Save this picture!© Alexander VertikoffWritten by Megan Sveiven Share AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & GreeneSave this projectSaveAD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene CopyAbout this officeGreene & GreeneOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsArchitecture ClassicsResidential ArchitectureHousesPasadenaHousesUnited StatesPublished on November 24, 2010Cite: Megan Sveiven. “AD Classics: Gamble House / Greene & Greene” 24 Nov 2010.

The court has the final say

first_imgThe court has the final say September 15, 2000 Regular News The court has the final say Since the dawn of the Judicial Qualifications Commission, Florida Supreme Court justices, whose duty it is to have the final say after giving “great weight” to the group’s recommendations, have wrestled with how to carry out discipline of judges consistently and fairly. In the very first case to come before the JQC in 1970, that was apparent. A judge had a falling out with his colleagues about how to run the courts in their circuit, and he took his concerns to the local newspaper. Fellow judges had complained he created chaos in the system and publicly embarrassed them. The JQC wanted the judge in question to submit to a psychological exam, but he refused. The Supreme Court ordered that the recommendation of the JQC be followed: a public reprimand for “failing to follow recognized methods of proposing changes in judicial procedure.” But Justice Richard Ervin disagreed, saying the judge had the free speech right to publicly explain his side of the dispute. “Here, the commission in its very first inquiry essayed to venture into a very nebulous and debatable situation involving the psychological motivation of a judge, and in the process equated his right to speak out on the subject of judicial reform as the prime example of his unbecoming conduct and his bad behavior,” Justice Ervin wrote in his dissent. “so venturing, we have at our threshold for the first review of findings of the commission, issues that set at stake the most fundamental concepts of a free democratic society.” There was no showing that the judge was “corrupt, senile or insane,” but only that he “rocked the boat and annoyed his fellow judges,” Justice Ervin wrote. In a 1996 case, a judge falsified records by backdating pleas in DUI cases. It had the dual effect of not showing up on the clerk’s record as part of the judge’s pending caseload, but also allowed drivers to stay behind the wheel when their licenses were supposed to have been revoked for six months. The JQC and the majority of justices agreed the judge should be removed from office because “knowing and repeated acts of falsifying public records strike at the very heart of judicial integrity.” But Justice Leander Shaw dissented, and Justice Harry Lee Anstead concurred: “Her openness convinces me that she was oblivious to the seriousness of her impropriety.. . . It seems inequitable to remove [this judge] when [another judge] received a public reprimand for lying in open court, falsifying records and convicting DUI defendants without a plea or trial in cases where the defendants failed to appear.” To Justices Shaw and Anstead, the middle ground punishment of six months suspension — a new option that became available in 1996 — seemed the fair way to go. In a 1975 dissent that agreed with the JQC to remove a Supreme Court justice from office [after the court majority ordered a reprimand], retired Florida Supreme Court Justice Alto Adams wove in a little history lesson: “We inherited the impeachment law from the Mother Country. It has proven to be most unworkable and unsatisfactory. “On November 8, 1966, Floridians approved a revision of the Constitution setting up the JQC.. . . It is rather significant to point out that the commission is composed of a rather select group of judges and laymen. Therefore, their recommendation comes to us with perhaps a greater dignity than a verdict of a jury or the findings of a grand jury. We should certainly be very reluctant to repudiate their findings of fact.” And former Justice Adams stressed: “The client can choose his lawyer, but his judge is chosen for him. Therefore, it would seem that a much higher standard would be required of judges than lawyers.” In a 1993 dissent arguing that a reprimand was more fair than the removal from office that was ultimately carried out, Justice Parker Lee McDonald wrote the blueprint for an honorable judiciary: “I would remind [the judge] that judges are servants of the people in a unique way. We have huge power over the property and lives of many people. This power must be responsibly and reflectively utilized. All persons must be treated equally and impartially. A judge must not react in anger to any situation. “At all times, we must serve the public interest by promoting justice and avoiding any impropriety or appearance thereof. Courtesy to all is an essential trait of a respected judge. “We must not be swayed by partisan demands, public clamor or considerations of personal popularity, nor apprehension of unjust criticism. “A judge should be careful to assure that in every particular the judge’s conduct should be above reproach. He should not use his office for political power or retribution against his detractors.”last_img read more

Sammy slams ‘short of brains’ comment

first_img Highly motivated KOLKATA, India (CMC): Captain Darren Sammy has lashed out at cricket broadcaster Mark Nicholas for describing West Indies as “short of brains” in a pre-tournament preview, and says the comment helped served as a catalyst for the side’s success in the ongoing Twenty20 World Cup. Writing before the tournament, Nicholas said West Indies were “short of brains, but have Indian Premier League history in their ranks”, a comment Sammy and the Caribbean side took great exception to. “How could you describe people with ‘no brains’? Animals got brains. We’re not an object,” an emotional Sammy told a media conference on the eve of the Twenty20 World Cup final here yesterday. “To me, that particular comment really set it off for us. You could see me talking about it. It’s kind of emotional, as for somebody who I respect and had good rapport with that particular gentleman. “To describe our team, who were defending champions four years ago, as we guys with no brains is really out of order.” West Indies lost just once in the preliminaries – to Afghanistan in their final game – to top Group 1 ahead of the semi-finals. They then produced a spectacular performance against tournament favourites India, chasing down 193 at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday in Mumbai to book their spot in the final. Sammy said that because of the criticism, West Indies had become closer as a unit and were now highly motivated ahead of today’s final. “Everybody is entitled to his opinion. You guys (media) ask most difficult questions to get a good story. We understand that. The key for us is the belief in our own circle. Whatever they say, it does not really matter,” Sammy pointed out. “God doesn’t love the ugly, and we’re very wonderful and very beautiful men. That’s why we play exciting cricket. For us, all these things have happened before the tournament. That’s the passion, determination that we take on the field. It’s one more step. We believe that we could do it.”last_img read more

HUTTON RESIGNS AS FINN HARPS MANAGER

first_imgFinn Harps boss Peter Hutton tonight resigned as manager of the club.Peter Hutton has resigned as Finn Harps manager.The Derry native has been manager of the Ballybofey outfit for the past two seasons.It had been rumoured all week that Hutton was to pack in the manager’s job at the end of the season. But the former Derry City star left it until after the game against champions Athlone Town to officially announce his departure.Ironically Harps beat champions Athlone 3-2 in their final home game of the season at Finn Park.Hutton issued a statement after the game in which he said he really enjoyed his time at Finn Park.His statement read: “I wish to confirm that I am resigning from my post as first team manager of Finn Harps FC with immediate effect. This is not a decision I have take lightly and have given it great consideration. Due to recent developments I believe that it is no longer possible for me to fulfil this role to the level at which I feel is required.“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Finn Harps FC for affording me my first managerial position; it has been a fantastic learning curve from which I have learned a great deal both on and off the field.“I took great satisfaction from the team’s performances in reaching the FAI Cup quarter-finals, a feat not achieved in ten years and, but for a  decision by the officials, could now be playing in a semi-final this very weekend. Advertisement “I am however disappointed more than anyone with how the season has evolved and if totally honest probably underestimated the task at hand.“I did though thoroughly enjoy my time at Harps and met some great people and hope that some day in the near future they get to enjoy the success their loyalty and passion for the club deserves.“I wish to particularly thank (chairman) Joey O’Leary and (former treasurer) Denise O’Neill, for whom I have great admiration. Their dedication and unwavering commitment to Finn Harps FC was one of the fundamental reasons as to why I decided to take up the post originally.“(Board members) Seamus Gallagher and Sean Quinn I thank also for their continued support throughout my tenure. The aforementioned people, I believe, are the lifeblood of this club and their desire and determination to see this club reach its potential was unfortunately not matched by others. Advertisement “I genuinely hope that whoever follows me will be given the necessary resources both on and off the field to build this club and not just a team.“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Finn Harps and in particular working with the players, to all of them, past and present.“I thank for their dedication and commitment for little, if no reward. Also I’d like to thank the entire backroom team of Sean McGowan, Declan McIntyre, Mickey McGlynn, Daniel Nolan, Paddy Foy and not forgetting Mr Finn Harps, Terence Murray. I’d like to wish Tommy Canning good luck with the rest of the U-19 campaign with some very talented young players.“I can only hope now that the two-year slog of developing the recently launched Finn Harps Youth Development Programme, of which I personally invested considerable time and effort in, and take great pride from, is continued in the manner as set out.“Overall, I have enjoyed my Finn Harps experience and genuinely wish the club well in the future and whilst I would naturally have liked to depart on a more positive note I will leave with my integrity fully intact.”There has been no announcement on Hutton’s successor at this stage.However, it has been suggested that Harps stalwart and Hutton’s deputy, Sean ‘Wizzard’ McGowan may be offered the job. HUTTON RESIGNS AS FINN HARPS MANAGER was last modified: October 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:finn harpsPeter HuttonRESIGNATIONlast_img read more

Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul fined Rs 20 lakh each for Koffee with Karan row

first_imgThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Ombudsman DK Jain on Saturday directed Hardik Pandya and opener KL Rahul to donate a sum of Rs 1 lakh each, to widows of 10 constables in paramilitary forces who have lost their lives on duty. The duo have to pay the fine as a punishment for the sexist comments they made on Karan Johar’s TV show Koffee with Karan.Hardik and Rahul have also been asked to pay Rs 10 lakh each in the fund created by Cricket Association for the blind, for promotion of game for the blind within 4 weeks.The Ombudsman has also said that if both the players fail to do so within four weeks from the date of the receipt of the order, the Board of Control for Cricket in India might deduct the said amount from the match fees payable to the players.BCCI Ombudsman directs KL Rahul & Hardik Pandya to pay Rs1,00,000 each to families of 10 constables in para-military forces who have lost their lives on duty & Rs 10,00,000 in the fund created by Cricket Association for the blind,for promotion of game for the blind,within 4 weeks https://t.co/Ju7ZgvwsitANI (@ANI) April 20, 2019The Ombudsman noted that the players had already missed out on earning of about Rs 30 lakh as they had been sent back from the tour of Australia. But he also noted that cricketers in the country are role models and their act should be befitting the status they have acquired.advertisementBut he also noted that since both the players apologised and did not contest the action initiated against them, it is unnecessary to return a categorical finding as to whether the remarks made during the course of the chat show constitutes as an act of indiscipline or misconduct or violation of any of Rules and Regulations on part of players as contemplated under Rule 41 (1) (c) of the rules.Clearly, the matter ends with this and the two cricketers can now look forward to representing the country with aplomb in the upcoming World Cup in England and Wales as the national selectors have picked the duo in the 15-member squad.The controversial episode was aired in the first week of January, triggering outrage, which prompted the COA to call the duo back from the tour of Australia, handing them provisional suspensions.The two tendered unconditional apologies and their ban was provisionally lifted pending inquiry. Once Jain assumed his role, the COA handed over the matter to Ombudsman for the completion of inquiry.The two players have also spoken publicly on the incident, recalling one of the toughest phases of their respective careers.Also Read | Hardik’s break from cricket helped him become a better cricketer: Krunal PandyaAlso Read | Hardik Pandya wishes birthday boy KL Rahul: Let’s make it our yearAlso Read | Hardik Pandya deposes before BCCI Ombudsman over Koffee with Karan controversyAlso Read | After Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul deposes before BCCI Ombudsman over TV show controversylast_img read more

USA outclass Netherlands 2-0 to clinch fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup title

first_imgThe United States won its record fourth Women’s World Cup title and second in a row, beating the Netherlands 2-0 Sunday night when Megan Rapinoe converted a penalty kick in the second half and Rose Lavelle added a goal.Rapinoe, the pink-haired U.S. captain who grabbed world-wide attention on and off the field, scored in the 61st minute after a video review determined Stefanie van der Gragt had fouled Alex Morgan with a kick to the shoulder in the penalty area.Two days past her 34th birthday, Rapinoe slotted the ball past goalkeeper Sari van Veenendaal for her 50th international goal, her sixth of the tournament to win the Golden Ball as scoring leader. The oldest player to score in a Women’s World Cup final, she struck a familiar victorious pose with arms outstretched.Lavelle, at 24 the team’s up-and-coming star, added a goal on an 18-foot left-footed shot in the 69th after a solo run up the center of the field.Fans, many dressed in red, white and blue, chanted “Equal Pay!” at the final whistle, a reminder players sued the U.S. Soccer Federation in March claiming gender discrimination.Rapinoe drew the ire of U.S. President Donald Trump during the tournament by saying she and teammates would refuse to visit the White House, part of the team’s wider push for gender equity. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio needed just a few seconds after the final whistle to invite the team to a ticker-tape parade up the Canyon on Heroes in Manhattan on Wednesday.advertisementThe Americans never trailed in the tournament and set records with 26 goals and a 12-game World Cup winning streak dating to 2015. U.S. coach Jill Ellis became the first coach to lead a team to two Women’s World Cup titles, and the U.S. joined Germany in 2003 and 2007 as the only repeat champions.With confidence and brashness that some called even arrogant triggering a backlash that the angry response was sexist – this American team established a standard of excellence that will be a goal for other U.S. teams and the rest of the world to match. Former American players joined the current generation on the field for the postgame celebration.last_img read more
