The contribution of glass surfaces characterizes the entire intervention, particularly for the spa and wellness area that, with a large fixed window, is visually connected to the underside of the swimming pool, situated in the external garden.The dialogue is reaffirmed by the choice of a uniform and continuous stone paving for both interior and exterior spaces, as well as the use of wide glazed walls which, playing with light and reflections act as thin diaphragms that never constrains and encloses the inside.Save this picture!© Alessandra BelloContrasted to the molding of ‘breathing’ and open volumes of the living spaces, which are allowed to stretch and encompass the outside landscape, the night area follows requirements of introspection and privacy, almost in antithesis with the ground level and retaining the existing fenestration.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe central room consists of a long open space, featured  by the presence of the false ceiling composed of wood triangle-shaped listels.

Porlier looks to contribute early as a freshman

first_imgOne of the new faces on this year’s Syracuse team is Maria, Quebec native Laurence Porlier.A freshman forward on this year’s squad, Porlier played all four years of her high school career at Brewster Academy, a U.S. preparatory school in Wolfeboro, N.H. She played three of those years for Team Quebec, one of Canada’s premier national women’s under-18 teams. Both experiences gave her a leg up on the competition to help ease her transition into the SU style of play.“The play is a lot faster,” Porlier said. “There are a lot of more players on the team, so there’s a lot of competition. It’s pretty different from high school.”She said she’s adjusted well to the faster pace and the coaching style. Both are much easier than she expected, and she’s been very comfortable working with head coach Paul Flanagan.Porlier said playing just one tournament a year with Team Quebec was both exciting and challenging because it was hard to connect with the girls she was playing with in such a short time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow on Syracuse, Porlier said that she gets along well with her teammates.“I love them,” Porlier said. “They’re all friends of mine and there’re no (cliques). We have a lot of fun and they’re funny.”Despite the tribulations of being a part of a Division I program, fellow forward Margot Scharfe said, the team does its best to remain close and supportive of each other.“We have a big team, so sometimes it’s hard to keep the social cohesion,” Scharfe said. “But we definitely are a really close team this year.”She went on to say that Porlier has adjusted well, as the other freshmen have, to playing for Flanagan’s team.Scharfe, a senior, has been through the ropes and knows that adjustment can be hard. With that, she is particularly impressed with SU’s newest skaters.“It’s awesome to see the freshmen grow because we were all there at one point,” Scharfe said, “so we know it’s a tough transition, but I think they’re all making the transition pretty smoothly.”As far as this season goes, the co-captain sees Porlier making a solid contribution.Scharfe said that Porlier has a big body, so she’ll be able to play physically, be a force around the other team’s net and make her mark on offense and defense.Flanagan agreed. He believes Porlier has a lot of potential coming into the season.“One of the reasons we looked at her during recruiting is she has good size,” Flanagan said. “She’s a good offensive player.”Games are not nearly as rough as in the men’s leagues Porlier played in, but they’re not that far off.“In women’s hockey, there’re not a lot of 5-4 games, there are a lot of 2-1 games,” Flanagan said. “I see her really helping our offensive game and giving us depth.”For Porlier, having the coaches’ and players’ confidences is certainly a great start.Although she’s just a freshman, her experience with Brewster and Team Quebec sets her apart. Playing at a high level isn’t new to her, so her goals for the season are simple.Said Porlier: “Perform as much as I can and every game give 100 percent and play hard all the time.” Comments Published on October 21, 2013 at 10:04 pm Contact Claudia: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Natural Gas Regulator Station Proposal Raises Real Estate Concerns

first_imgBy Vincent Ferrer |HOMDEL – The Zoning Board met Wednesday, Oct. 10 at Holmdel’s Town Hall to hear from experts and residents on a controversial utilities development project.Following a failed application nearly two years ago, New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG) has applied to the Zoning Board for 12 variances to permit a natural gas regulator station at 960 Holmdel Road in the southern part of the township. The station – a 16.51-acre site owned by Holmdel Venture LLC – is currently zoned for office/laboratory use, but more concerning to Holmdel residents is the proximity to residential homes, offices, preserved farmland and the nearby Village School.The greatest point of contention came after a real estate valuation expert for NJNG testified that the station would have no impact on local real estate values. The expert drew this conclusion from a study that observed the impact of similar stations built in Colts Neck, Lincroft, Wall Township, Aberdeen, and Morris County.Residents took issue with the real estate study, which excluded any quantitative effect on more than 400 acres of nearby farmland. The study was limited to “dominant land uses” – specifically residential uses, building lots and office space – and disregarded land encumbered by use restrictions.Anthony Sposaro, Esq., who appeared on behalf of the Casola family and Fox Hollow Vineyards in Holmdel, along with a dozen other residents, voiced their concerns over the study’s accuracy. NJNG was represented by Nancy Skidmore of Connell Foley LLP.Board member Chris Briamonte called attention to the fact the highest valued homes sold in the study were neither in close proximity to a station nor over $1 million. A recently constructed housing development in Holmdel containing several homes valued in excess of $1 million is located near where the station will potentially exist.Briamonte cited a correlation in the study between pricing and proximity to a station. “In most cases, as I get closer to your station, my price gets significantly lower,” he said. Board chairperson Valerie Avrin-Marchiano asked for NJNG to supply the data used in creating the study.Richard Reading, a Princeton-based economic consultant who also appeared on behalf of NJNG, testified that the new station would only cost the town an additional $5 per year.Opponents of the construction say the proposed regulator station is unnecessary given Holmdel’s population and a lack of substantial power outages. Yet NJNG argues the current and future needs of the utilities network, to which Holmdel is just one part, call for an upgraded station.The Holmdel Zoning Board will be voting next month on whether or not to grant the variances.This article was first published in the Oct. 18-24, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Nitros snap long drought by capturing KIJHL Championship

9 months agoSolskjaer’s smash-and-grab: Why this Man Utd manager has more than luck going for him

first_imgSolskjaer’s smash-and-grab: Why this Man Utd manager has more than luck going for himby Chris Beattie9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCOMMENT: A 1-0 win in London. At Tottenham. On paper it reads like a real smash-and-grab. And it was. But the way Manchester United nicked these three points was a complete 180 to the tale such a result would’ve demanded just a month ago…Jammy. Lucky. Yeah, Spurs fans can feel aggrieved today. Mauricio Pochettino, the home manager, had no complaints in the aftermath. They simply came up against an inspired goalkeeper. But David de Gea would also pull off such performances pre- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Spaniard was outstanding. Inspirational. But so was what he saw in front of him. As mentioned, this was a smash-and-grab. But it was done by a United on the front foot. In their best traditions. Spurs weren’t locked down. Their play wasn’t stifled. Strangled. It was the opposite. Pochettino’s greatest concern wasn’t breaking down a packed defence. It was the two forwards Solskjaer insisted stayed on the halfway line. No matter the pressure. No matter the time Spurs had in possession. United’s manager always had two attackers waiting to turn Tottenham’s defenders around.Six wins from six. With a bit of luck to help things along. But what’s wrong with being a lucky manager? Especially when it’s his initiative which is bringing this change of fortune.It’s not luck that Solskjaer has decided to go all in with Marcus Rashford as his prime – central – striker. It’s not luck that the Norwegian has realised the best way to win with this group of players is by backing their attacking strength. And it wasn’t luck that produced the winner – via Rashford – at Wembley on Sunday. The reaction of the manager and his staff a clear indicator that a week’s work in Dubai had just come off. Something which the matchwinner would later confirm.“We’ve done a lot of work in training on switching the play and little things like that,” Rashford revealed in the aftermath. “We’ve had a long week in training (in Dubai) and it’s been tough in training, but that’s the type of thing we’ve been working on. So for it to come out in a game is good for us as players and good for the staff as well.” Claims that Solskjaer is simply the beneficiary of player power – that they’re now performing because Jose Mourinho isn’t around – is insulting to the caretaker boss. When he and his staff review Sunday’s win, they’ll be confronted by the same problems as what Mourinho struggled with. A loose back four. An even looser midfield. By rights, Spurs should have taken the three points. But Solskjaer has made a difference. On the training pitch. In team selection. He’s giving this group of United players a tactical platform to go out and win. And as this column has already stated, it’s a platform over 11 years in the making. From the highs with Molde. To the lows with Cardiff City. And everything inbetween. These United players are the recipient of the decade long apprenticeship served by Solskjaer.They may get torn to shreds at the back. But United will always have a chance with De Gea between the posts and the pace they have up front. In the Mourinho era, we’d say the manager can’t trust his back four. But this is Solskjaer’s time, though the sentiment remains the same. He’s leaning on those players regarded as the best inside his squad. And they all happen to be attackers. It’s a cliche, but it’s working for this United manager: attack is the best form of defence.And suddenly this lot do have the makings of a great United team. And in the very best traditions of Sir Alex Ferguson. A great goalkeeper. Attacking, edge-of-your seat pace in attack. If Ed Woodward, United’s vice-chairman exec, can find his manager a new centre-half, they’ll be a step closer to completing the revival.From Gary Pallister. To Jaap Stam. And Rio Ferdinand. Sir Alex broke transfer record after transfer record to find the right centre-half to buttress the style of football he wanted to employ.Five years since the Scot’s retirement and Solskjaer is bringing back that approach. It might as well have been Fergie himself when the manager declared late Sunday afternoon: “We’ve got the best goalkeeper in the world. We’ve got blistering pace…”And now he just needs that centre-half. If Woodward is still hesitating this smash-and-grab should strengthen the manager’s case. Give him what he needs and Solskjaer is proving he can deliver. TagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorChris BeattieShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Canfor announces more curtailments in Mackenzie and a shift reduction in Prince

first_img“We deeply regret the impacts that these capacity reductions will have on our Mackenzie and Isle Pierre employees, contractors, their families and the local communities,” said Stephen Mackie, Senior Vice President of Canadian Operations, Canfor. “The BC forest industry is continuing to face very significant challenges. None of our temporary or permanent curtailment decisions have been made lightly, nor are they a reflection on the hard work and dedication of our employees.”In combination, these curtailments will reduce Canfor’s annual production output by approximately 400 million board feet, which is in addition to previously announced reductions. MACKENZIE, B.C. – Canfor announced Thursday more capacity reductions in Mackenzie and Prince George.The Mackenzie sawmill will be placed on an indefinite curtailment effective immediately due to the high cost of fibre and poor lumber markets. On top of that, Canfor says challenging operating conditions have made the mill uneconomic under current conditions.The Isle Pierre sawmill in Prince George will be permanently reduced from two shifts to one shift effective September 20, 2019. The capacity reduction, which is due to insufficient timber supply as a result of the mountain pine beetle epidemic and associated decline in the annual allowable cut, will enable the mill to better align its production capacity with the sustainable fibre supply in the region. last_img read more

US women shut out Japan in preWorld Cup friendly at Crew Stadium

The 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup won’t begin until June 26, but the U.S. women’s national team looks ready. Preparations for this summer’s tournament continued for the American women Saturday with a 2-0 international friendly match win against Japan at Crew Stadium. The U.S. took a 1-0 lead in the 29th minute, thanks to veteran forward Abby Wambach’s goal — the 118th of her international career. Just eight minutes later, Wambach assisted on a goal that forward Amy Rodriguez hit off the post to give America a 2-0 lead. The U.S. went on to win by the same score. Japan began the match with offensive pressure and threatened American goalkeeper Hope Solo as the U.S. sat back early. “If you look at the first 25 minutes, I don’t think it’s good soccer,” U.S. coach Pia Sundhage said. “(Japan) played good. They kept possession and so forth.” Momentum swung in America’s favor when defender Ali Krieger provided the free-kick service for Wambach’s goal from about 35 yards away from Japan’s net. Wambach met Krieger’s lofted ball in stride and headed it passed Japanese goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori to give the Americans a 1-0 lead. “We struggled big time until we scored the first goal,” Sundhage said. “Abby was great today. Just look at that goal; it (was) fantastic.” Wambach contributed to the American attack again just moments later. In the 37th minute, Wambach assisted on Rodriguez’s goal with a simple pass into Japan’s penalty area. Rodriguez hit the pass in stride, and the ball eventually trickled over the goal line after hitting off Kaihori’s near post. Despite contributing to both goals, Wambach credited the win to the U.S.’s defenders, saying they had a “strong” performance. “We have such a great defense,” Wambach said. “Our back four (defenders) are so solid. I like our chances when we score one goal.” Solo, who collected the 51st shutout of her international career, agreed. “It’s pretty easy playing with this back line,” Solo said. “My work is half as much as it usually is playing in the (Women’s Professional Soccer league).” The U.S.’s momentum continued immediately after play resumed in the second half, as the team fired three shots in the first seven minutes. By game’s end, the Americans took nine on-target shots at Kaihori, but none found the back of the net. Though her team did not score in the final 53 minutes of the game, Sundhage said the U.S.’s performance improved after the team’s early hiccups. “The second half was so much better than the first half,” Sundhage said. “We can do better.” Discipline in every facet of the U.S.’s game helped limit Japan’s offense in the final minutes — America went 21 minutes without committing a foul, from the 62nd minute until the 83rd minute. The 2-0 lead was all the Americans needed. Sundhage said she was happy with the outcome of the match. “This is a great team, and the team put it together,” Sundhage said. “We stayed composed and we came back. You don’t have to play beautiful soccer for 90 minutes, but you need to be smart enough to find a way. We did it.” The U.S. women’s national team will continue its FIFA World Cup preparation with another game against Japan on Wednesday. The match is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. in Cary, N.C. read more

World Cup will not impact Benitezs transfer plans

We have people going around but now you can see a lot of players and you don’t have to be there.” said Benitez, according to Chronicle Live.“Also I am not a fan of the Euros and World Cup in terms of signing players from there because when they go there, what do they have?

I am not impressed with the World Cup or Euros in terms of signing players because they do well there.”After a difficult start in their return to the Premier League this season, there has been a notable upturn in form for Newcastle since the beginning of the new year and Benitez’s side have climbed to an unexpected 10th place in the standings.Yet the 57 year-old has previously stated that he will not be satisfied until they reach his 40 point target with Newcastle just two points shy.last_img read more

Deputy Commissioner (Headquarters) Amit Javalgi said: “We will publicise the court order through media before Diwali. If any complaint comes, we will definitely intervene. We will strictly enforce the timings.

According to reports, the Board had already put in force a mechanism to stop the supply and sale of firecrackers beyond permissible decibel sound limits (90 decibel) since the past couple of years.last_img read more

first_imgLondon, England – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineWhen Bea Tollman, President and Founder of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, opened her first hotel in London in 1984 she believed outstanding personal service and great value should be the essence of every guest’s stay. Now, with generations of experience in hospitality, and having grown the collection to an impressive thirteen family-run luxury boutique hotels, Red Carnation is regarded as one of the world’s finest. With accolades including kudos from major travel publications to even a “Best Employer in Hospitality and Leisure” award at the 2009 Springboard Awards for Excellence, her secret ingredient for success is continued investment in her most prized asset – her people.Guest reviews often includes phrases such as “flawless service”, “extraordinary staff” and “top notch luxury”. And Red Carnation delivers over fifty different internal training programs, including the specially designed Management Trainee Programs, to ensure talented individuals receive the guidance and business acumen to fulfill their potential within hospitality and continue to deliver unforgettable guest experiences. Many of these programs are linked to internationally recognized qualifications and include extensive leadership and management initiatives.Staff remuneration through rewards is also a key ingredient. Individual and department incentives together with social events throughout the year are just some of the ways in which Red Carnation recognizes and rewards good performance whilst reinforcing strong family values. For example, over 700 staff are set to attend a glamorous Dinner Dance, at The Hilton Park Lane in London, 28th March 2010. Some 100 employees will be flown in from the overseas hotels, some from as far as South Africa, to celebrate the collection and the achievements of the team members. The evening will see over 130 staff recognized for their outstanding contributions as managers and employees over the past twelve months, as trainers, and as individuals who were willing to go way beyond their ordinary duties for the benefit of guests and other members of the team as well as honorary awards for length of service. Generous cash prizes, weekends away, trophies and certificates will mark the occasion for the winners. Above all, and most importantly however, it’s an opportunity for friends and colleagues to get together and have some fun.“When you work closely with people day in and day out you become a family, and that’s how I see our staff. Likewise, we’re creating a ‘home from home’ for our guests, and treat them as we would treasure family friends,” says Bea Tollman. “A true appreciation of people, those that work with us and those that stay with us, is at the heart of everything we do, as evinced by the extremely low staff turn-over. But it all starts with staff training, development, recognition and, ultimately, promotions from within. We’re totally dedicated to helping every individual fulfill his potential, because it’s the only way to deliver the ultimate guest experience. There are no short cuts or half measures.”www.redcarnation.comlast_img read more

Suicide rates have increased in nearly every state

first_imgSuicide rates have increased in nearly every state over the past two decades, and half of the states have seen suicide rates go up more than 30 percent.Suicide is a major public health issue, accounting for nearly 45,000 deaths in 2016 alone. That is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta decided to take a comprehensive look at suicides from 1999 to 2016.”Suicide in this country really is a problem that is impacted by so many factors. It’s not just a mental health concern,” says Deborah Stone, a behavioral scientist at the CDC and the lead author of the new study. “There are many different circumstances and factors that contribute to suicide. And so that’s one of the things that this study really shows us. It points to the need for a comprehensive approach to prevention.”She and her colleagues collected data on suicides from every state. In addition, to better understand the circumstances surrounding suicide, they turned to more detailed information collected by 27 states on suicides that occurred in 2015.The rise in suicide rates was highest in the central, northern region of the U.S., with North Dakota, for example, seeing a 57.6 percent increase since 1999. Nevada was the only state that saw no increase, and Delaware saw the smallest increase which was 5.9 percent.The findings were published in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.Guns were the most common method used for suicide, accounting for almost half of the people who died.Often, the suicide seemed to happen without warning: 54 percent of the people who killed themselves didn’t have a previously known mental health issue. “Instead, these folks were suffering from other issues, such as relationship problems, substance misuse, physical health problems, job or financial problems, and recent crises or things that were coming up in their lives that they were anticipating,” says Stone.Researchers and advocacy groups who work to prevent suicide say the report shows that much more needs to be done to tackle this growing problem.”None of this is surprising information, which is not to trivialize its importance. I think it captures a lot of trends that we’ve been becoming more and more aware of over recent years,” says psychologist Michael Anestis at the University of Southern Mississippi, who researches suicide and is the author of Guns and Suicide: An American Epidemic.He thinks the general public commonly pictures someone who had been getting treatment for a long period before killing themselves, like fashion designer Kate Spade, who died this week, but that’s often not the case.That means any public health effort to reduce suicides can’t solely focus on those who have reached out for help. It has to be paired with measures that would make suicidal people less likely to die even if they never went to see a doctor.The CDC report cites several different approaches, such as working to stabilize housing and teaching coping and problem-solving skills early in life.The report also cites the need to reduce “access to lethal means” but without explicitly discussing firearms or controversial issues such as gun control legislation. Asked whether that was a deliberate omission, because of the political climate surrounding gun control, Stone said that suicide rates have been increasing across all methods.”So it’s not just about firearms, it’s also about other methods of suicide such as hanging, suffocation, poisoning and the like,” she said. “We are concerned with all aspects of suicide prevention, including access to lethal means, and so we do include that in a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention.”But Anestis believes that it’s important to not beat around the bush when it comes to guns and to talk about the importance of things like setting waiting periods for purchase, and storing guns locked and unloaded.”American suicide is predominantly a firearm issue. Anytime we want to resolve something that involves firearms, we’ve need to talk about firearms explicitly,” he says. “The conversation about firearms and suicide doesn’t have to be a debate about the Second Amendment. It could be a debate about where can we find some common ground that doesn’t simply involve only talking about people with mental illnesses, because as this paper shows, that’s not going to get the job done.”Research shows that the decision to attempt suicide is often made quickly, in an impulsive way, says Robert Gebbia, the head of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.”You may be thinking about it over time, but that moment when you actually make an attempt is a very short window,” he explains. “If you could make it harder to make that attempt by not having access to the means, often what happens is the feelings will pass, it gives people time for someone to intervene and get them help, so that is a really important preventative step that can be done. And there’s good research to support that.”Suicide researchers already know a lot of the information in this new report, says Gebbia, “but the public doesn’t. And so a report like this really draws attention to the fact that we need to do a whole lot more to prevent suicide, to save lives.”He points out, for example, that the nation currently has no federally funded suicide prevention program for adults. “There are some for youth, but they’re very, very tiny,” says Gebbia. “We can’t expect a major public health problem like this to be addressed unless we see the investment.”The CDC said that people can learn about warning signs of suicide to help people at risk.
