October 4, 2017 at 12:53 pm LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply There is weather news that we may have yet another hurricane here Sunday morning. Possibly a category 1 that looks like it will swing in on the west coast of Florida, and come in where the panhandle, and the west coast of Florida come together, the arch. This is all we need here, as the winds will be back, and whatever else bad it will bring. It was extremely windy, even yesterday. This one has been named now, as it has strengthened, and I think I heard it is named Nate, I believe. I have worked out in my yard so much lately, and have somehow gotten thorns in the back of my upper arms, and it is painful, and I can’t see back there on my arms anyway, not very good close up vision. Still have tree concerns in our yard, with more potentially strong winds coming. From the Apopka Area Chamber of CommerceOur deepest condolences go out to the victims and their families of this senseless tragedy that occurred in Las Vegas on Sunday night. Our hearts and prayers are with all of Las Vegas, and our nation, as we grieve for the innocent lives that were taken from us and we thank the first responders and the medical community for their heroic acts.Unfortunately, we know all too well the pain and suffering caused by such a horrific tragedy, and we should lead by example by offering our support and prayers as many around the world showed us. Today, we stand United With Las Vegas and pray for incredible strength, unity, and resilience in this difficult time of need.Additionally, we continue to pray for those who were directly affected by the devastation of Hurricane Maria. The Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce will be joining with Victory Church in Apopka to help gather and send relief supplies to the people of Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. Martin.

Observing the sun can be dangerous to the eyes if proper precautions are not taken.Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our students, ALL outdoor activities (physical education classes, recess, athletic practice, band practice, extended day programs, etc.) between the hours of 1:15 PM and 4:15 PM, at ALL schools, will be moved indoors. Outdoor activities can resume after 4:15 PM. The only students who will be allowed outside are those whose teachers have prepared special lessons with the appropriate protective eyewear and use proper safety procedures. Before Monday, we ask that you speak to your child(ren) about the eclipse and the dangers of looking directly at the sun and the potential damage this can cause to their eyes. Please help us remind them that it is never safe to look directly at the sun, especially during an eclipse.We are also asking parents to use an abundance of caution while driving during the time of the eclipse, and to be especially careful in the parent pickup area at school to avoid distracted drivers, students and pedestrians. Schools will dismiss at their regularly scheduled times on Monday. Prior to dismissal students will be reminded of proper safety procedures for their trip home.If you want your child to view the eclipse at home, you can pick up your child after noon, or you may keep your child at home – for an excused absence. A simple note from you must be submitted for the excuse.We will encourage teachers to use their television and computers to view the coverage of the eclipse in their classrooms.For educational and safety information regarding the eclipse you can visit NASA’s website at eclipse2017.nasa.gov.

When a young couple with a growing family wanted to take a step back from the city, they found an old vineyard parcel in Napa Valley that looks out towards the Mayacamas. On that site, Field Architecture designed a house that makes room for both small and large gatherings where the family can spend time connecting with the land and with one another. The property sits on the valley floor, the only vertical moment a line of tall trees in the northeast corner. Field nestled the home — designed as a family of structures — between the trees, leaving a courtyard space in the center and filling it with a luxuriously modern pool. A grand valley oak marks the central axis threading through the building.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Joe FletcherThe gable-ended structures work relationally to each other and the neighboring mountain and reference the agrarian history of the site, each roof supported by dark timber and steel trusses inspired by the property’s existing hay barn. Rich wood punctuates a sleek, airy interior, the deep contrast offering both textural structure and visual rhythm. The material palette oscillates between the modern and the traditional, shifting throughout the project. In the kitchen, the casework is conceived as a single block of wood inlaid into the cement column that bookends the living space, lit by the skylight above. Where wood columns outside punctuate a long, concrete landscape wall, notches blocked out in the concrete let a view of the landscape beyond drift through the space between materials.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherOutside, the roof is finished with a thin slab of metal, gently creased at the ridge and allowed to spill down the edge in a continuous line. The metal meets the ground through gutters entirely integrated into the form, with downspouts set flush to the face of the building and a width that replaces just a single board of vertical siding. It’s a graceful move, but not a showpiece; Field wanted for all the details to come together as a backdrop to a cohesive identity.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Joe FletcherAn exciting intersection between modernism and vernacular design emerges from Field’s continual re-engagement with the spatial repercussions of the vernacular. Field framed the steeply sloped ceiling differently in each room of the house — from the skylight that disappears into the gable’s peak and floods the hearth with light, to the dramatic slice the ceiling takes through the hallway, where the roof reaches its resolution at exterior walls made of glass and steel. Light spills into the house from every side through the windows, which open the interior up to the courtyard and extend the home’s visual boundary out into the vineyard beyond.Save this picture!© Joe FletcherProject gallerySee allShow lessUTS to Build Australia’s First Indigenous Residential CollegeArchitecture NewsArchitecture becomes a STEM Subject in the United StatesArchitecture News Share Interior Design: Zinfandel / Field Architecture Zinfandel / Field ArchitectureSave this projectSaveZinfandel / Field ArchitectureSave this picture!© Joe Fletcher+ 34Curated by María Francisca González Share Grassi Associates Area: 6100 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses 2017 Jess Field, AIA and Stan Field, RIBA, SAIA Landscape Architect: Year: “COPY” “COPY” Manufacturers: Concreteworks, Northstar, Jada, Phoenix Woodworks, TBC, TBC Plaster Shawback Design General Contractor: Lead Architects: Photographs: Joe Fletcher Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyHouses•St. Helena, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/908645/zinfandel-field-architecture Clipboard Projects Photographs Architects: Field Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/908645/zinfandel-field-architecture Clipboard United States CopyAbout this officeField ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSt. HelenaUnited StatesPublished on January 02, 2019Cite: “Zinfandel / Field Architecture” 02 Jan 2019.

Indiana Weather Forecast 1/28/2015 Models continue to bring the moisture from this weekend’s system into the Corn Belt. We see precipitation totals of at least a quarter of an inch up into IA and IL, half to three quarters of an inch into MO and the OH valley. We will follow this weekend’s system with more active precipitation pattern for next week and into the week following. Temps hold on for 1 more mild day, but look for well below normal temps on average to finish the week and through the rest of the forecast period. By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 28, 2015 SHARE SOYBEAN Weather The warmest air is gone today, and we now look for a steady move lower in temperatures. We expect about a 50 degree difference in high temperatures from yesterday to what we see around Sunday. However, as temperature changes go, this one will be manageable. There will be some concern about wheat, but with decent moisture profile already in place, the crop should handle this kind of change. WE will look for some potential rain and snow added to the region as our system lifts out of TX Saturday and Sunday. Precipitation will be limited to mostly areas over OK and TX in the weeks ahead, but the cold air resurgence is just beginning, with temps even colder (in relation to normal) at day 10 than we see this Sunday. Maps below are departure from normal maps for noon this Sunday, and 6 am Friday, February 6th.Much better precipitation continues to work into SRW areas for this weekend and next week. The same precipitation pattern outlined in the Corn Belt section and even for Indiana will play out for all SRW areas. Moisture will be better for southern SRW, especially along and south of the OH River…but the atmospheric set up is much better going forward for SRW than what models were showing a couple of weeks back. Cold air will jerk people back to reality in the SRW belt…but at this point, it does not look like a dramatic enough shift to cause any concern with the crop. BEYOND INDIANA: Colder air comes in behind the front Thursday, and will take temps down a notch or two for Friday and Saturday. The freezing line will slip down to the OH river Saturday, meaning temps will stay under 32 degrees over most of the state thanks to Canadian high pressure. This will be key, as cold air will drive precipitation type as our larger event comes in for Sunday. SHARE Moisture begins to push into the region overnight Saturday night and continues through Sunday. Watch the freezing closely. South winds ahead of the low will likely warm the southern half of the state, but the freezing line likely does not move north of ST Rd 26. So, as precipitation develops, we look for all or mostly snow over the northern 40% of the state rain mixing with or changing to snow farther south. Precipitation totals will be in the .2”-.5” range, which will mean decent snows up north, although we will wait to put out our snow totals until late tomorrow or early Friday. One reason why is that I think we can see this low actually trend even farther north, and pull in some more moisture – that has been the trend so far with the model runs from this past Sunday through today.And this is just the beginning. After a couple of days with cold Canadian high pressure, we see a clipper system hit for the Wednesday the 4th bringing .1-.4” of moisture (snow over the northern half of the state, rain/snow mix south). Then another clipper with minor snows statewide for the 6th-7th. Temps drop to well below normal levels through the week next week, with each front/clipper bringing in air masses that are 5-7 degrees colder than the prior air mass. Brazil rains actually favor corn ground in the short term, with the best moisture for days 1-7 coming across the southern part of Matto Grosso down through Matto Grosso do Sul and into Parana, Santa Catarina and Sao Paulo. Rains in that belt will be half to 1.5” with coverage at 80%. Extended period rains shift a bit farther north, but we still should see scattered rains that produce up to half-1” totals next week into the week following. The only exception may be extreme southern Brazil, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul…where we may go drier next week and beyond. Facebook Twitter Nice, timely rains in Argentina going forward with moisture today through late Friday over all key corn areas in Argentina. We are keeping rain totals of .25”-1” with the bulk of the region in the top half of the range. The action goes more scattered for the first half of next week before we get some net drying in to finish next week. The far extended pattern shows another good front around the 10th of February. Home News Feed Indiana Weather Forecast 1/28/2015 Temperatures should bounce today, helped by west and southwest winds. We are looking for 2 days of normal to above normal temps. Today, sunshine will help, as high pressure moves overhead. Tomorrow, southerly winds will keep temps a bit above normal ahead of a weak boundary that slips through from the northwest. That boundary triggers minor precipitation, mostly rain, and amounts of a few hundredths to a tenth. This will be mostly light rain or even drizzle, but a wet feel nonetheless. Temps should be in the 30s to low 40s over most of the state today and tomorrow, although snowpack over the northern third of the state may keep temps just a bit cooler from US24 northward. Buckle up; the Hoosier weather pattern is going to get a lot more exciting in the next 10 days. Models continue to come around to my thinking about a system coming out of TX this weekend, with the latest European runs taking moisture right up across our great state for the second half of the weekend. But…before we get there, we have to work through some warmer air and a quick moving clipper system. Weather that Impacts CORN: Facebook Twitter We really see no reason to change thoughts in Brazil Soy country at this time. From now through the weekend, precipiation will be scattered and more focused on the western and southern rim of soy country, from western Matto Grosso through Matto Grosso do Sul and into Parana. There we like rains (5 day totals) of up to 1 inch with local amoutns near 2 in extreme southwest Matto Grosso. Eastern MT, Goias and western Minas Gerais will be drier with under a third of an inch. From next week on through day 10, we see bette rcoverage over the entire soy belt with addiaional totals up to 1 inch. From days 11-16, stronger fronts are projected, but we look for those to diminish in intensity as we move into the shorter term period, as the model bias toward better rains in the extended period holds true. WHEAT Weather Argentina soy areas look good with some reports of water standing in some soy fields in norhtenr Argentina. Rains in the 10 days ahead look to favor Entre Rios, norhtern Cordoba and norhtenr Buenos Aires. The extended period shows a plethora of moisture being thrown at the west coast. The GFS model takes a blasé approach to the extended period, keeping us cold, but not as active. We like a more active solution, with that moisture hitting the west coast coming through and brining at least a few clipper systems through the 11-16 day period and some easy snows. No significant change in FSU areas. Strong high pressure keeps eastern locations dry, but we see on again and off again moisture in western areas through midweek next week, predominantly the central and southern regions in Russia along with Ukraine. There we can see 10 day moisture totals up to three quarters of an inch, although it comes in small, short spurts. Temps will be above normal from this weekend through most of next week. The extended period brings that active pattern eastward, and will bring .25-.5” liquid equivalents to the Volga region and the Urals.

RSF_en News Help by sharing this information December 28, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Five suspended sentences cap year of mounting difficulty for press Receive email alerts Yemeni journalist killed, nine wounded in Aden airport explosions Reporters Without Borders today condemned the suspended prison sentences passed on 26 December on five journalists, culminating a year in which at least 24 press freedom violations have been registered in Yemen and the harassment of journalists by means of summonses, prison sentences or physical attacks has become common.”These frequent crackdowns on the press create a climate of intimidation that makes it extremely difficult for journalists to work,” the press freedom organisation said.Firmly condemning the use of imprisonment to sanction press offences, Reporters Without Borders pointed out that the latest suspended sentences were in complete contradiction to President Ali Abdallah Saleh’s promise in June to “work to put an end to prison sentences for press crimes.”Suspended sentencesAbdelwahed Hawache, the editor of the weekly Al Ihiya al Arabi (“The Arab Renaissance”), and his deputy editor, Abdel Jabbar Saad, received six-month suspended sentences for an article criticising the Saudi royal family. Abderrahmane Abdallah, the editor of the weekly Al Tajamaa (“The Gathering”), got a six-month suspended sentence for reporting that a Libyan citizen tried to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdallah, while a one of his journalists, Nabil Sabie, got a four-month suspended sentence for the same article.Hamid Chahra, the editor of the weekly Al Nass (“The Men”), received a three-month suspended sentence and was fined 50,000 riyals (183 euros) for libel because he referred to the corruption prevailing in Yemeni political circles.Physical attackSadiq al Jarrash, the editor of the weekly Al Zajil, was on his way to work on 20 October when his taxi was rammed by a car whose occupants then attacked Al Jarrash, beating him and his bodyguards and stabbing him in the hand. Noting that the victims saw the car’s number plate, Reporters Without Borders called on the authorities to investigate the attack properly, in order to identify and punish those responsible as soon as possible.One-year prison sentenceA Sanaa court sentenced Abdulkarim Al Khaiwani to a year in prison on 5 September in response to a complaint by the Yemeni information ministry accusing his newspaper Al Shoura (“The Advice”) of supporting an anti-government rebellion by Shiite leader Badr Eddin al Hawthi and libelling President Saleh. Al Shoura was also suspended for six months.Reporters Without Borders called on the authorities to free Al Khaiwani at once and allow his newspaper to reappear.Press brought to heelAll of the journalists contacted by Reporters Without Borders described the current situation of the press as very difficult. Hamoud Mounasser, Sanaa bureau chief of the pan-Arab TV news station Al Arabiya, said international television stations have to send all their news dispatches through the national TV station, whose executives vet each item. Mounasser said they had already blocked one of his stories on a sensitive subject.Self-censorship is therefore the rule. Journalists know they should not criticise the president or the government or refer to the corruption in political circles.As a result of these violations, the Yemeni parliament recently named a commission to investigate the closure of several newspapers by the government and the information ministry’s respect for the law. Questioned during the most recent parliamentary session, on 26 December, information minister Hussein Al Awadhi claimed that there have been no press freedom violations and that all decisions have been taken in accordance with the law.In 2004…- 9 journalists received suspended prison sentences- 2 were detained- 4 were physically attacked- 1 was threatened- and 7 were summoned for questioning. to go further February 11, 2021 Find out more There were at least 24 press freedom violations in Yemen in 2004. Summonses for questioning, prison sentencesand physical attacks on journalists have become common. Reporters Without Borders condemns the crackdowns onthe press, which create a climate of intimidation that makes it extremely difficult for journalists to work.
