Speaking in Newcastle, NSW today, Australia back Adam Ashley-Cooper said: “When I was growing up on the Central Coast I would have never imagined getting the opportunity to come back and play a Test for Australia in the nearby Hunter region. It will be good to part of the first Wallabies team to play a Test in Newcastle. There is a strong level of support for the game in the Hunter – and a great history of Wallabies to have come from the region – so I’m sure that a big crowd will come out to get behind us against Scotland.”Scotland, who will take a 34-strong playing party, are still finalising their itinerary for the remainder of the tour and are looking to include a fixture against a Super XV side in Australia on Saturday 9 June.Following the Australia leg of the summer tour Scotland will head to the South Pacific and will play Test matches against Fiji and Samoa.  Those dates and venues are still being finalised, as is the kick-off for the Test against Australia.last_img read more

What is the Get Organized Program?Every neighborhood within Orange County is vital to the overall health of our community. The Orange County Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division wants to help you and your neighborhood make our community the best possible place to live. As residents, we must step forward and take responsibility for our community, our neighborhood, and the quality of life therein; if we don’t…who will?This program is an Orange County initiative, designed to address the challenges confronting neighborhoods. Upon residents’ request, Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Staff will provide the necessary resources to create and maintain a self-sufficient voluntary neighborhood organization. The process begins with a few residents distributing and collecting a neighborhood survey. The information collected from this survey will provide a foundation for the organization.After the survey data collection, County Staff will conduct approximately three community meetings guiding residents through a course of action to construct organizational bylaws and elect organization leaders. Residents will learn how to effectively identify and address their neighborhood’s concerns.If this sounds like something your neighborhood could benefit from, contact the Orange Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division today.What exactly is a Voluntary Neighborhood Organization?A voluntary neighborhood organization is a group of neighbors who join efforts to improve their quality of life. This type of organization provides a local forum in which residents meet regularly to consider and resolve issues that are important to them as a neighborhood. These grassroots organizations also provide a recognized vehicle for communicating residents’ views to local government. How is a Voluntary Neighborhood Organization Structured? Each organization is structured through bylaws established and maintained exclusively by the members. Membership is optional and open to all residents in the neighborhood; owners, renters and local businesses. Democratically elected executive officers work together with issue-focused committees, made up of residents, to achieve the organization’s goals. Meetings are held monthly, bimonthly, or quarterly according to bylaws.For more details, go here. You have entered an incorrect email address!

House for Hermes / Andrew Simpson Architects

first_imgSave this picture!© Peter BennettsText description provided by the architects. A House for Hermes is the outcome of a collaboration between the architect and a client working as an artist and landscape architect. Sited on the northwest edge of Philip Island, the project involved the conversion of a heritage-listed chicory kiln into a couple’s residence. The design was conceived as part of an ongoing exploration of what might constitute “home” or “place” in a world where prevailing conditions are of speed, dynamism and change. This conceptual framing extended from an earlier art installation undertaken by the client that was exhibited at Tarrawarra Museum of Art in 2007.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsRecommended ProductsWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20WoodHESS TIMBERTimber – GLT HybridDoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemThe architecture is predicated, not on the rehearsed acts of enclosure or through the predetermined functions that define a house, but on the idea of facilitating and celebrating transformation and movement. Through the use of adaptive and reconfigurable spaces and the manipulation of thresholds and passages, the house is intended to be a place that engages with and is a catalyst for change. A sense of “open-endedness” – of new possibilities of inhabitation – is reinforced by the treatment of an interior landscape defined by contiguous interlocking volumes that encompass the exterior decking and surrounding context. This desire for serendipity is partly a response to Georges Perec’s question: “We should learn to live more on staircases. But how?”Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!PlanDivided into two primary volumes, the nucleus of the house is a reconfigurable kitchen in which the joinery works as the connective threshold between ground and first floor. This area is designed to accommodate a range of activities from group cooking classes to an intimate meal.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe kiln is one of three buildings set within a large coastal property adjacent to protected wetlands. The Coldon home (a guest house and artist studio) and Setters Cottage (sewing studio) provide complementary amenities to the main house and along with an outdoor bathroom precipitate an engagement and traversal of the surrounding gardens and landscape.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe original heritage building is one of the few example of early 20th century chickory kilns on the Island constructed from concrete. Substantial rebuilding and restoration work to the concrete was required due to significant structural cracking and spalling, which was undertaken through the use of insitu reinforced shotcrete. The decking on the north side of the kiln is integrated with a large concrete retaining wall and water trough that was originally built as part of the industrial function of the building and has now been tanked and refilled with water to provide a means of passive cooling.Save this picture!© Peter BennettsThe project was delivered on a tight budget. Including the external deck areas the final building cost came in under $3000/m².Project gallerySee allShow lessPyeongdae Panorama / Z_LabSelected ProjectsAIA Names 10 Best US Houses of 2016Architecture News Share Projects Houses Architects: Andrew Simpson Architects Area Area of this architecture project Photographs CopyAbout this officeAndrew Simpson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAustraliaPublished on April 11, 2016Cite: “House for Hermes / Andrew Simpson Architects” 11 Apr 2016.

Historic protests topple monuments of racism

first_imgPeople poured through U.S. streets the first week of June, as if answering Martin Luther King Jr.’s cry: “Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”Those torrents of people are carrying out a mighty change through the U.S., and a prime example is pulling down the racist statues erected in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as propaganda for the “Lost Cause” of slavery. Outrage over the death of George Floyd has re-ignited determination to end the “honoring” of racism with physical symbols.Protesters surround racist monument of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Richmond, Va., June 6.Around the U.S. — but most importantly in the South — monuments to white supremacy are falling under the weight of protests sparked by anger at George Floyd’s murder.In Richmond, Va., the first capital of the Confederacy, protesters on May 31 surrounded and defaced the statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee, a rallying point for racists. The statue has sat since 1890 on affluent Monument Row where other Confederate leaders are also memorialized.On June 3, as protests against racism accelerated, Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced the state-owned statue would be removed. Two days later the entire Richmond City Council approved it, including several former hard-line racist opponents.Unwilling to wait for Northam, protesters in Richmond used ropes on June 6 to topple the statue of another Confederate general in the heart of the Virginia Commonwealth University campus.Toppled Confederate statue, Birmingham, Ala., June 1.In Birmingham, Ala., on May 31, protesters pulled down the Confederate soldier statue from atop the Soldiers and Sailors Monument erected in 1905. The next morning a city-ordered crane began to haul away the memorial’s last remains.In Montgomery, Ala., the last capital of the Confederacy, while other protesters gathered a few miles away on June 1, four people tore down a Lee statue erected in front of Robert E. Lee High School. On June 5, the city of Mobile, Ala., a port city, suddenly removed the statue of Confederate Admiral Rafael E. Semmes after days of protests about the death of George Floyd.The mayor of Indianapolis, Ind., announced plans to remove a Confederate soldiers monument erected as a grave marker in 1912 and relocated in 1928 because public officials active in the Ku Klux Klan wanted it to be more visible. In the 1920s Indiana’s governor, more than half the state legislature and an estimated 30 percent of all “native-born” white men in Indiana were KKK members.The campaign in the U.S. to bring down the physical emblems of slavery and racism intensified in 2017 after white supremacists and neo-Nazis violently rallied in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 11 and 12, killing one anti-racist protester and injuring scores. The racists’ pretext for invading the city was to protect a Lee statue.A unified left force pushed the far-right back in Charlottesville, and two days later, on Aug. 14, a left coalition in Durham, N.C., with active leadership by Workers World Party, pulled down a Confederate statue outside the old Durham County Courthouse.Honoring George FloydGeorge Floyd was born in Fayetteville, N.C., and one of his sisters still lives in nearby Raeford, N.C., where his body was brought for a memorial. Raeford is a country town with a population of less than 5,000 people — but thousands more came there on June 6 to honor Floyd. When the hearse arrived bearing his coffin, chants began in the crowd, “Black Power!” and “No justice, no peace!”On May 30, in Fayetteville, N.C., protesters encircled the Market House, a historic building at the center of downtown. From 1790 to 1865, enslaved Black people were sold at that site about every two months. Local protesters, well aware of this history, burned a U.S. flag at the building and then set fire to the Market House itself.Pratt, a white, anti-racist activist born and raised in Alabama, organized for many years in Fayetteville, N.C.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The police did not return the laptop they took from him when arresting him on 7 June. He was arrested while trying to obtain new information about Lt.
