They routed seven opponents by margins of over 30 points. They had two fourth quarter come-from-behind victories over Dr. Phillips (15-14) and Wekiva (38-31). The gave head coach Rick Darlington his first undefeated season (9-0) and rolled over their 8A District 4 opponents (3-0) to land a first round home game in the playoffs. They are five wins away from their fourth state title.And they are one loss away from their season being over. Welcome to the playoffs Apopka. Win and advance…lose and go home.Timber Creek a strong first round opponentWhen the Timber Creek Wolves prowl onto Roger Williams Field in Apopka, they will throw a balanced attack at the Blue Darters both on offense and defense.  When the Wolves have the ball, they are led by senior quarterback Brandon Garcia who has thrown for 956 yards and 9 touchdown passes. The catalyst of the offense, however, is sophomore Peter Hayes-Patrick who has rushed for 1,240 rushing yards and 18 touchdowns. Hayes-Patrick has also had seven games this season rushing for over 100 yards, which of late has been an issue for the Apopka defense. Senior wide receiver MJ Jarrell is Garcia’s primary target with 364 receiving yards and three touchdowns on the season.Timber Creek is a big-play defense, forcing 18 turnovers (13 interceptions and 5 fumbles recovered), and sacking opposing quarterbacks 17.5 times. Senior cornerback Trey Grenga and free safety Zak Souza lead a stingy Timber Creek secondary with four interceptions apiece, while senior defensive end Terry White leads the Wolves line with 8 sacks.Timber Creek recovered from a 7-0 loss to Winter Park with wins over Boone, Colonial and University to finish second in 8A District 3 and qualify for the post season. Their head coach is Jim Buckridge, who is in his eighth season and has a 45-34 record.Kickoff is at 7PM this Friday at Roger Williams Field on the campus of Apopka High School. The winner moves on to face the winner of the Wekiva vs. Winter Park game in the second round.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. Three Piece House is a courtyard house, designed for a couple looking to downsize and live more simply. The project places a modest, single-storey house and studio on its site. These buildings are skewed to follow the site’s boundaries, and cluster to create privacy on this exposed corner lot.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThe site was restricted by flood controls, which required the building to be raised. In contrast to a conventional architectural response – which might elevate the house on stilts-Three Piece House sits on a solid brick base. This design approach was inspired by Jørn Utzon’s text, ‘Platforms and Plateaus,’ and the gesture lends the house heft and presence.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThe main house is composed of two pavilions- one for living, and one for sleeping. A reading corridor, which bridges between, faces out to the garden and, in winter, is bathed in northern sun. In response to the client’s brief– and a limited budget- the rooms all maintain a compact proportion that is balanced by generous ceilings and carefully cropped openings.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingAt Three Piece House, courtyards and gardens ramble between the buildings. The two main courtyards have distinctive characters: one is extroverted and public, the other introverted and private. The southern porch, which faces the river, is a space for neighbourly chats and watching street life go by. The northern courtyard, meanwhile, is a sheltered space for retreat and gathering.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThe materiality of Three Piece House is robust and resilient, as befits a windswept, coastal site. The textures are raw and rugged, and have been chosen to become more beautiful as they age. Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!Northern ElevationSave this picture!SectionThe skillion forms are clad in radially-sawn Silvertop Ash, a highly resource-conscious product. The solid masonry base is rendered in earthen-red tones, colour-matched to the recycled brick paving and the rusted reds of passing ships. The bricks used across the project were reclaimed from the existing house- an unremarkable 1940’s bungalow- to form the platform upon which the new home sits. This gesture is both inherently sustainable, and an act of storytelling: the new home rests upon the bones of the building before it.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThroughout the interior, a palette of timber floors, crisp white walls and plywood ceilings provides a warm and welcoming envelope. Corner openings peel back to reveal greenery and views, while high windows exhale air and offer slivers of sun and sky.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingAcross this project, the budget is spent thoughtfully, focusing on details that improve the client’s daily life: a series of pendant lights suspended in corners, touches of brass for tactility, and a tiled bench for washing in old age. This house is defined by a spirit of ‘less but better,’ with every decision a careful negotiation of longevity and value. The project is also an excellent example of the unique solutions that can be pursued using the complying development process.Save this picture!© Benjamin HoskingThree Piece House is a dynamic and distinctive piece of architecture, and has brought beauty and dignity to a suburb not known for its architectural merit.

This design acts as a 21st-century Case Study house, a prototype for exploring the potential for new custom homes within well-established Los Angeles suburbs. The home addresses a complex challenge: providing residents with access to daylight, capturing prevailing breezes, and creating inviting exterior spaces while maintaining a high quality interior spatial experience and a comfortable level of privacy—all on a standard-size suburban lot. Save this picture!Floor Plan Level 1Set on a 50-foot x 120-foot lot, the 3,600-square-foot house has five bedrooms and three baths; the ground floor open plan comprises the kitchen, dining areas, and family/living rooms. The detached garage is 500 square feet.Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe floor plan focuses on the free flow of interior to exterior space while providing the homeowners privacy from the street, alley, and adjacent properties. Construction technologies and materials were selected to support the design. A structural slab-on-grade foundation ensures a seamless indoor/outdoor connection via two oversize, exterior pocket doors on the east-west axis and one large pocket door linking the great room to the courtyard. The entire width and length of the property can be seen from a single point in the kitchen, the heart of the home. Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe building’s considered relationship with the site is particularly evident in its solar orientation. By strategically placing glazed pocket doors, skylights, and windows at circulation corridors, the house does not depend on artificial lighting during the day. A two-story atrium serves as a light well for the family room, rear entry, and the master suite. Glazing was maximized in size, but the number of openings was minimized so that exterior wall insulation would have little interruption. Openings on the east and west elevations are protected with overhangs. Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe home is minimal in massing and modest in material. The second level pulls back from the front yard setback, respecting the scale of the neighborhood. Earth-toned exterior plaster complements the context and is further softened by creeping fig vines. Dimensions were calculated to maximize efficiency and reduce cost and waste. Rooms were sized to eliminate the need for steel columns and beams. Ceiling heights were set at 9’-6” so that a standard 10-foot lumber length could be used with minimal waste. All exterior walls are framed in 2’ x 6’ lumber in order to maximize insulation values.Save this picture!© Francis DreisWhile the modern design formally addresses the challenge of building sensitively in an evolving community that contains many original homes from the tract developments of the 1930s, it also pursues a more humanist concern: Providing sanctuary. Save this picture!© Francis DreisThe home’s living spaces are peaceful, comfortable, and private—qualities that aren’t always associated with modernism. One way the design achieves this is by connecting visually and physically with nature. Every space in the home has an appropriately-scaled, framed view or access to the outdoors. Defined by the family room and master suite, a two-story central atrium showcases a 30-year-old Japanese black pine, a beautiful natural sculpture. The breakfast nook opens onto the front yard, planted with a textured mix of ornamental grasses and olive trees. In contrast, the backyard is a manicured lawn. Save this picture!© Francis DreisAnother way the design achieves a calming effect is by rigorously scaling and sequencing the interior spaces. This results in simultaneous experiences of openness and intimacy; both qualities are essential to creating a sanctuary. Nooks, niches, and small spaces for retreat are carefully carved out of the open floor plan. Even the master shower has a powerful spatial dichotomy: its tall, narrow enclosure is topped by a skylight, opening the closed shaft of space.Save this picture!© Francis DreisProject gallerySee allShow lessWriter’s Shed / Matt Gibson Architecture + DesignSelected ProjectsMerlot Apartment / Clarice Semerene ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Vibia, Allied Maker, Ann Sacks, Badeloft, Bega, Caesarstone, California Faucets, Heath Ceramics, Herman Miller, Lambert & fils, Miele, Paloform, Rich Brilliant Willing, Rimadesio, Room & Board, Vitsœ, Carl Hansen and Son, Christopher Allen, DWR, +10Dal Tile, Harbour Outdoor, Madera Hardwood Flooring, Nelson, Quartzite, Saarinen, The Nogughi Museum, Vintage – Den Mobler Teak Chairs by Erik Buck, Vintage – Morccan area rug, Western/ Windows-10 Save this picture!© Francis Dreis+ 20Curated by María Francisca González Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/942776/culver-city-case-study-house-woods-plus-dangaran Clipboard Architects: Woods + Dangaran Area Area of this architecture project 2018 United States “COPY”last_img read more

CLIC Sargent and authors team up for 2017 Get in Character campaign

first_img  91 total views,  3 views today Tagged with: Celebrity Fundraising ideas CLIC Sargent is running its Get in Character campaign for the fourth consecutive year this March, offering people the chance to be immortalised in the next book from a top author.A seven-day Get in Character eBay auction is running from Sunday 26th February to Sunday 5th March, which gives readers the chance to bid to have a character named after them.Since launching in 2014, the campaign has raised more than £24,000 for CLIC Sargent, and this year over 100 authors are taking part including Graham Norton, David Baddiel, Andy McNab, Michael Morpurgo and Holly Smale.Signed books are also available from Laura Trott, Jason Kenny, Jeffery Archer and Anne Tyler, as well as signed one-off illustrations from Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo), Chris Riddell (the Children’s Laureate), French illustrator Jean Jullien and children’s illustrator Emily Gravett. The campaign also offers any budding writers the chance to have their work critiqued by authors Julie Cohen, Claire Dyer, Karla Brading or Eve Seymour.Graham Norton said:“Get in Character is a fantastic way to help a vital charity to support young lives in their fight against cancer. I’m thrilled to be able to offer the name of a character in my next book to help CLIC Sargent in its mission to stop cancer destroying young lives.”Auctioning character names in books has proved a successful way of raising funds for charity. In 2014, London’s Air Ambulance raised £120,000 at a gala event celebrating its 25th anniversary, including £30,000 from one person for the chance to have their name immortalised as a character in Anthony Horowitz’s next James Bond novel.Ian Rankin also auctioned a character name to raise funds for The Independent’s 2001 Christmas appeal, while last year’s Freedom from Torture Immortality Auction, which launched in 2000, saw authors including Tracy Chevalier, William Boyd, and Louis de Bernières donate a character in a book, raising over £30,000 for the charity.

AT&T hit by coast-to-coast strike

first_imgAt 3 p.m. EDT on May 19, 21,000 workers began streaming out of AT&T retail outlets across the U.S. These AT&T Wireless workers in 36 states and the District of Columbia were joined by almost as many striking wireline, call center, internet service and DirecTV workers in Nevada, California and Connecticut.A strike was on, called by the Communications Workers.The walkout of AT&T retail workers might be the largest retail strike in U.S. labor history. Workers at DirecTV, recently acquired by AT&T, are striking for their first contract ever. The action comes a little more than a year after the victorious Verizon strike by 39,000 members of the CWA and Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.CWA mobilized the strike, closing retail outlets for the entire weekend, over AT&T’s “failure to present serious proposals that invest in good jobs with a future.” (cwa-union.org) CWA has filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board about the company’s refusal to provide job sourcing information the union requested. Data on vacations, sick days, training, job transfers and benefits have also been illegally withheld by the company.Because AT&T workers pay for part of their health care benefits, rising costs are eroding their earnings. They badly need an adequate pay increase to offset this burden. Instead, AT&T wants to increase employee contributions to health benefits. The meager raises offered to workers would be eaten up by inflation. AT&T has also forced retail workers to take what amounts to a pay cut when it unilaterally restructured their sales commission formula, which CWA wants to negotiate in the new contract.CWA revealed that AT&T has subcontracted 12,000 call center jobs since 2011. Workers in the Dominican Republic, employed by third-party contractors, perform the same work as CWA members for a fraction of what U.S. workers make. CWA staff went to the Dominican Republic to investigate and saw the union-busting tactics Dominican workers face for trying to improve their situation. Multi-billion-dollar behemoth vs workersAT&T is number 10 — just after General Motors and Ford — on the Fortune 500 list of the biggest U.S. companies. AT&T makes about a billion dollars in profit every month. The more the company squeezes out of worker pay and benefits, the more AT&T profits. The telecommunication giant is poised to acquire media entertainment giant Time Warner, pending approval by the Department of Justice.CWA alerted union supporters in advance when and where to show up for picket line actions. Many were outside AT&T stores, ready to show solidarity, as workers marched out of stores across the U.S.At a Manhattan store, the line of strikers and family members grew to 150 in the first 10 minutes of the action, and kept growing. A multinational crew of picket captains led the crowd in chants like “We built it up, we take it down!” and “Every job a Union job!” A striker from the Bronx told Workers World proudly, “The Fordham Road store has been shut down completely since Friday. Not a single scab.” A crew from a Washington Heights store said theirs was open but only with managers.These CWA Local 1101 members were joined by the president of the Clerical, Administration and Technical Staff (UCATS) Local 3882 at New York University, along with an editor of CWA 1180’s magazine, and members of the American Federation of Teachers and the Professional Staff Congress of City University of New York.Nobody passing by attempted to enter the store as workers marched to three other midtown stores and back. More coordinated support actions took place during the weekend.The union states that members “have vowed to do what they have to do if AT&T violates their rights or an open-ended strike becomes necessary.” (cwa-union.org)Sara Catalinotto contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fort Worth residents to vote on number of council members on May 7

first_imgNational Night Out increases community safety Twitter Teenage pregnancy rates remain high in Tarrant County Twitter Previous articleLocal school auction fills the gap for improved learning environmentNext articleFrogs stun Raiders 67-62 in first round Tori Knox RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printOn May 7 Fort Worth residents will have the opportunity to vote on city charter revisions, which include increasing the number of council members from eight plus the mayor to 10 plus the mayor.In July 2015, the Fort Worth City Council established The City of Fort Worth Charter Review Task Force to find recommendations for the charter before the May 2016 election.The task force recommended increasing council members to 10 plus the mayor, because of Fort Worth’s population growth, said Cheraya Pena, press secretary for city council.“The real issue has been the steady growth of the city of Fort Worth,” said Pena.According to the U.S. Census Bureau and Fort Worth government’s website Fort Worth’s population has increased by 410,803 people since 1975.The population growth means council members currently represent approximately 101,000 citizens, according to the Charter Review Task Force’s findings.Pena said the increase in council members would not be specific to one area.“[The increase is] just trying to have better representation over all, for all citizens,” said Pena.The city council has included eight council members plus the mayor since 1975, said Mary Kayser, city secretary of Fort Worth.The goal is for the increase to be in effect for the 2023 election upon redistricting after the 2020 census, said Kayser.Kayser said the additional cost for the two council members’ salaries would come from the city’s general fund.Part of increased cost of the two council members depends on how residents vote on Proposition 3, said Kayser. Proposition 3 addresses the task forces’ recommendation to increase council members’ salaries from $25,000 to $45,0000 annually said Kayser.The salary increase is recommended to go into effect Oct. 1, 2016 if residents vote for the proposition on May 7, according to the task force.The outcome of the vote on Proposition 3 will determine if two additional council members would cost taxpayers $50,000 or $90,000; however, additional costs are still unknown, said Kayser.“There’s no way to tell additionally what else [is needed], but it would be minor,” said Kayser.Residents will be able to vote on the task forces’ recommendations for two additional council members and increased council members’ salaries in the charter election on May 7.
