The design for this house was inspired by a desire to engage with the landscape, celebrate the native Oak trees and capture views of Mt. Diablo and the surrounding hills. Formerly a hunting and summer guest house dilapidated from years of vacancy, the old growth Douglas Fir framing lumber was salvaged for re-use and the 100 year old rock walls that traverse the property were preserved.Save this picture!© Paul Dyer PhotographyEnvisioned for direct access to the outdoors and visual connection to the landscape, the house creates an L shape as two perpendicular volumes step down the hill integrating with the existing trees and rock walls. The materials selected–board formed concrete walls, painted steel and stained western red cedar–were inspired by the natural setting and rugged nature of the site.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanPermeability between interior and exterior is achieved by providing sliding glass doors throughout the main level of the house, allowing the patio and cantilevered deck to be an extension of the living spaces. The entry also aligns with the outdoor patio connecting the North and South sides of the property. Floor to ceiling windows frame views of the hills and mountain beyond.Save this picture!© Paul Dyer PhotographyAs part of the sustainable design approach, the Upper Level overhangs the Main Level on the South side utilizing passive heating and cooling strategies and Upper Level windows have 6” deep perimeter frames to provide shade during the hottest summer months. Additionally, the inverted hip roof was designed to maximize exposure for solar panels while visually concealing them from the street.Save this picture!© Paul Dyer PhotographySustainability Features:• House was designed for passive heating and cooling. A 4’-0” overhang and 6” deep perimeter frames around the windows were designed to shade the South glazing in the summer while allowing direct sunlight in the winter.

Contributions may also be solicited from Hon’ble Judges, Bar Council Members, Senior Advocates and senior members of the Bar in the State for generating a fund of at least a sum of Rs.5, 00, 00,000 (Rupees Five Crores only). A minimum sum of Rs.7,500/- (Rupees Five Thousand Only) may then be provided in a systematic manner to a targeted group of most deserving Advocates”.They suggested an eligibility criteria for deserving candidates in the following lines :(a) Age shall be below 35 years. (b) Enrolment and practice shall be below 7 years. (c) She/he must be a regular practicing lawyer as per the Bar guidelines.

Schemes may be devised to help this category, including credit and loan facilities with no interest”, they added.”The Bar Council may adopt a proactive role and reach out to banks to discuss loan facilities for advocates who have completed 10 years of practice to support their staff and office”, they suggested.

View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy Training & Education View post tag: Evolution Sailors attached to USS Theodore Roosevelt’s (CVN 71) Aircraft Intermediate Maintenance Department (AIMD) and Weapons Department conducted load testing on aerial equipment, Dec. 11.The testing helps prepare Sailors for operational conditions during the ship’s last year of refueling complex overhaul (RCOH). The testing included the loading of an AOQ-99 jamming pod and an AWW-13 data pod using a hoist. The equipment has not been used since TR first entered RCOH at Newport News Shipbuilding in August 2009.“Today, we demonstrated how to operate the equipment that the shipyard has provided to us,” said Master Chief Aircraft Maintenanceman (AW/SW) Steve Newman. “We have a new configuration in our mezzanine – it’s more user-friendly and safer for our Sailors to use. We sent our Sailors to the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) to gain experience in our rate, but this is the first time we have used this equipment since 2009.”Aviation Electronics Technician 1st Class (AW) Amy Ricker of AIMD, one of the leading Sailors who participated, is one of the few Sailors in the evolution with experience in working the equipment.“We load tested our hoist and made sure our systems were working, which include the rails and storage racks,” said Ricker. “This test was necessary so that, when we become operational, everything is in working order. We did as well as we could with what we currently have, and with many of our Sailors having little to no experience being in the shipyards and not out to sea. We did great.”Because this evolution was the first exercise with AIMD equipment for many of the Sailors aboard, the testing was another big step for TR as the ship gets closer to rejoining the fleet.“This was my first experience working in any aspect of my rate as an Aviation Electronics Technician,” said Aviation Electronics Technician Airman Adrienne Atkinson of AIMD. “It’s great because I’m learning what I will be doing out at sea, and I think I did pretty awesome for my first time. For now, I have to read up on my rate and get qualified, so I can do this when our ship becomes operational, and when my time comes.”It was a good day for Sailors attached to AIMD and Weapons, according to Newman.“Yesterday, we were Sailors rehabbing spaces and doing shipyard work,” said Newman. “Today, we were AIMD Sailors. This evolution shows who we really are and what we can do out to sea, and I’m pretty stoked about that.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 13, 2012; Image: US Navy USS Theodore Roosevelt’s AIMD, Weaopns Department Conduct Equipment Testing Evolution Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Theodore Roosevelt’s AIMD, Weaopns Department Conduct Equipment Testing Evolution View post tag: Department View post tag: AIMD View post tag: Theodore View post tag: Roosevelt’s View post tag: Naval View post tag: testing View post tag: conduct December 13, 2012 View post tag: Weaopns View post tag: USS View post tag: equipment Share this article
By Donald WittkowskiOcean City will reluctantly stick with the construction company overseeing a troubled $6.5 million drainage project instead of fighting it out in court or trying to remove the contractor from the job.City officials said litigation against the lead contractor, A.E. Stone Inc., could prove risky, including the possibility that the company would respond by seeking a court injunction to shut down the project.“Litigation may not work in the city’s favor,” Councilman Keith Hartzell said.While a lawsuit against A.E. Stone doesn’t appear likely, Hartzell added that the city continues to pressure the company to complete the overdue construction as quickly as possible.“I think we’re at the point that A.E. Stone knows we’re serious,” Hartzell said.Hartzell and other city officials strongly criticized the company during a town meeting Saturday attended by about 100 residents of the Fourth Ward, the part of town where the drainage project is being built between 28th and 34th streets.During a town meeting Saturday, Councilmen Bob Barr, left, and Keith Hartzell had harsh words for the contractor overseeing the delayed drainage project.Although most of the meeting Saturday focused on the city’s preliminary plan to develop a comprehensive flood-control strategy for the Fourth Ward between 36th and 59th streets, city officials used part of the forum to express their frustration with A.E. Stone.“They’re behavior is pathetic,” Fourth Ward Councilman Bob Barr said.Responding to complaints from residents about the project’s slow pace and disruptions, Barr has been particularly outspoken in his criticism of the company in the past few months. He believes the city should never hire A.E. Stone again for any other construction project.However, Barr said the “last thing” the city wants to do is become involved in protracted litigation against A.E. Stone that could bring the drainage work in the Fourth Ward to an abrupt halt.Instead, the city is looking at the possibility of invoking lateness penalties incorporated in the construction contract to pressure the company, officials said.In his weekly message posted on the city’s website, Mayor Jay Gillian said his administration continues to meet with A.E. Stone and its subcontractors to get the project finished. Gillian noted that the contractors are supposed to give him a detailed timeline this week for the remainder of the project.Vince Bekier, aide to the mayor, told residents at Saturday’s meeting that Gillian remains as frustrated as anyone else in the city over A.E. Stone’s work performance.“If we could eliminate them as this contractor, believe me, this mayor would,” Bekier said.In an extraordinary public admonishment, Bekier said he simply can no longer believe what A.E. Stone tells him about completing the project.“I’m not confident in relying on anything they tell me right now,” he said.A.E. Stone officials were not available for comment Sunday. The company did not return previous phone messages left by OCNJDaily.com at A.E. Stone’s corporate headquarters in Egg Harbor Township seeking comment.At the intersection of 30th Street and Haven Avenue, construction has begun on one of the pumping stations that will help ease flooding in the neighborhood.As the project has dragged on, months behind schedule, city officials have become less and less certain in saying when it may finally be done.Characterizing it as an encouraging sign, Bekier said a new project manager “who seems more motivated” has just taken charge of the construction for A.E. Stone.The drainage project started promising enough when it got underway last year. The goal was to dramatically reduce the amount of flooding that plagues the surrounding neighborhoods.The construction zone encompasses the blocks from 28th to 34th streets between West Avenue and Bay Avenue. Simpson and Haven avenues serve as the spines of the project.City officials had originally thought construction would be finished by Memorial Day weekend, just in time for the start of the bustling summer tourism season. However, homeowners had to endure ripped-up streets, detours and noisy construction equipment invading their neighborhoods through much of the summer.With a crucial part of the project still not finished, Bekier said the best guess is for construction to wrap up by the end of the year.“We’re hoping by the end of the year, but I can’t make that guarantee,” he said.After being ripped up for months for drainage work, the roads have been repaved between 28th and 34th streets.Construction consists of three major parts, including repaving the streets, installing new drainage pipes to replace some that are 40 to 60 years old and building four pumping stations.The pumping stations will help remove storm water from the flood-prone neighborhoods and channel it to drainage pipes leading to the bay.Contractors recently installed the drainage pipes and repaved the roads, but still must build the pumping stations. Work will continue through the summer on the pumping stations. Two stations located at 30th Street and Haven Avenue and next to the Ocean City Municipal Airport parking lot are in place and the equipment is being installed.Work on a pumping station and pipeline on airport property at the end of 28th Street will be next, followed by construction on the final pumping station adjacent to Clubhouse Lagoon off Bayland Drive, according to a project update on the city’s website. A “Road Closed” sign and barrier at the intersection of 32nd Street and Haven Avenue show that construction is not yet completed.
