Located on the Banks of the ‘Grillagh River’ to locals known as Pixies Paradise, young Architect Patrick Bradley has designed his unique bespoke dwelling set within Northern Irelands Rural Countryside adjacent to the historic Picturesque Drumlamph Woodland, which is the only remains of the ‘Great Forest of Killetra’ which once would have covered the whole of Northern Ireland.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanUnlike any other house that has ever been designed and constructed within Northern Ireland, this house takes a completely new approach to rural architecture in the Irish countryside. With the concept an appreciation of agricultural buildings dotted throughout the rural landscape, the house is a refreshing approach to contemporary 21st Century Irish Architecture.Save this picture!© Aidan Monaghan PhotographyThe house is the first modern shipping container construction designed and built in Northern Ireland, with the primary structure made up of four 45ft shipping containers, merged together to form two large daring cantilever forms. The containers are cloaked with a dark grey coloured expanded metal to the top form with a natural corten steel to the lower form, which could only be considered a piece of art or sculptural nestled into its surrounding landscape.  The dwellings layout has been cleverly design to take full advantage of the site outstanding views to the surrounding picturesque landscape, mountains beyond, historic Drumlamph woodland and nearby Grillagh River (salmon river).Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanOn approach to the house you travel on a gravel laneway with dry stone walling to both sides which separates the site boundary and surrounding agricultural fields. At the end of access sits the house, and with the smallest elevation you find only the primary entrance door in bold orange with a minimal cantilevered porch above.Save this picture!© Aidan Monaghan PhotographyThe primary entrance to the house is located at the upper floor on the north side of site, which leads you through a small entrance gallery in to the open planning living area, with a kitchen, dining area and living space. This area has been designed to have a free flowing circulation, which also leads you onto two external balcony areas to the South and West. One of the three bedrooms is behind a hidden door of the entrance gallery. The location and position of the upper floor has been designed to take full advantage of the view and natural sun light, also within this area of the house it provides such emotion of a calm relaxing atmosphere.  In between the galley kitchen and dining area rests the steel sculpture stair case which leads down to the lower ground floor level.Save this picture!© Aidan Monaghan PhotographyWhile descending down the staircase there is a large window framing the view towards the natural rock and once you reach the lower floor level, you are exposed to the a whole bathroom through a large internal screen, which includes an incredible suspended hammock designed sculpture bath and towards the east a sliding pocket glass door which provides access to a bedroom provides view to the surrounding agricultural fields and a water trough for livestock which provides a barrier between the farm animals and the house. Located beside the bathroom is the utility boot room, which also provides access to the outside gardens with the large cantilevered south balcony above. At the end of the small circulation hallway there is a hidden door which leads you into the master quarters. The layout of master quarter’s internal design is very hotel style with open shower area with a large internal screen, providing a beautiful view over the bed to the historic Drumlamph Wood. Hidden Behind a frosted glazed wall is the WC and basin. The bedroom itself is in the most secret area of the house with a large glazed window with incredible views and with the only sound provided is that of wild life from the woodland and flowing water of the Grillagh River. The feeling and emotions of tranquillity and privacy in the lower level provides a completely different emotion to that of the upper level.Save this picture!© Aidan Monaghan PhotographyThe overall aesthetics and forms of the house which is sculptural like marries beautiful into completely rural setting and with this very modest size house of just 1236sqft. provides everything that’s required to have a prefect family home.Save this picture!© Aidan Monaghan PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessRebuilding Sandy Hook: How Svigals + Partners’ Design Offers Safety and SolaceArchitecture NewsINNOCAD Founder Martin Lesjak Named Contract’s Designer of the Year 2015Architecture News Share Architects: Patrick Bradley Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project Ireland CopyAbout this officePatrick Bradley ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodlandHousesIrelandPublished on February 05, 2015Cite: “Grillagh Water House / Patrick Bradley Architects” 05 Feb 2015.

Two private newspapers suspended for three months

first_img On 6 September 2002, the weeklies Misamu and Gabaon were suspended for three months by order of the National Communication Council (Conseil national de la Communication, CNC). The regulatory body has accused the two newspapers of publishing news “that undermines confidence in the state and the dignity of those responsible for the republic’s institutions”.”Once more, the CNC and the Gabonese authorities are attacking the private press. In Gabon, as soon as a newspaper denounces the misappropriation of funds or criticises the state’s highest-level officials, it risks being censured or suspended,” stated Reporters Without Borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard in a letter to Prime Minister Jean-François Ntoutoume Emane. The organisation asked the prime minister to intervene to ensure that the CNC measure is cancelled and do everything possible to expand press freedom in Gabon.The weekly Misamu was suspended for reporting on the “disappearance of 3 billion CFA francs (approx. 4.5 million euros) from the public treasury.” The newspaper also announced the possibility of “non-payment of civil servants’ wages during the month of September 2002.” Meanwhile, the newspaper Gabaon was punished for “violently” criticising Senate President Georges Rawiri in its 9 August edition, according to a CNC communiqué. Finally, two other publications, Le Nganga and La Lowé, were “given notice” for articles undermining the prime minister’s dignity, according to the authority responsible for regulating the media.Reporters Without Borders notes that in 2001, the newspaper La Griffe and its international version Le Gri Gri International were also suspended by the CNC. The regulating authority also prohibited the publication director and editor-in-chief from practising their profession as journalists.

UK: HMS Montrose Successfully Fires Harpoon Missile

first_imgRoyal Navy warship HMS Montrose has flexed her warfighting muscle with the successful firing of a Harpoon missile – capable of destroying a target up to 80 miles away. The anti-ship missile was fired at more than 800 mph into a specially-designed target barge in the Scottish exercise areas, obliterating it within minutes, and demonstrating the type of lethal power the warship wields.The Royal Navy continually tests its personnel on exercises and training serials which are designed to build a world-class Service, and putting the weapons through their paces is part of ensuring their powerful capability. Principal Warfare Officer Lieutenant Ben Evans said:“The intensity and stress of conducting complex warfare training increases tenfold when you know that there is almost a quarter of a tonne of warhead on the end of the live missile you are about to fire – but so is the satisfaction increased when you successfully achieve your goal.” HMS Montrose, which is based at Devonport Naval Base, fired the Harpoon missile during a specialist training week following her participation in Exercise Joint Warrior – a huge multinational exercise off the coast of Scotland.Weapon Engineer Officer Lieutenant Commander Tony Marden said:“Firing our cutting edge missiles is not an everyday event, but ensuring the availability of the equipment required to do so is, and my team of professional engineers take great pride in having proved their mettle.” The missile is around 15ft long, about 1ft diameter and is launched from Type 23 frigates. A booster rocket helps launch the Harpoon before the turbojet then powers it along at Mach .9 – just under the speed of sound.One of the aims of the firing was to put into practice some of HMS Montrose’s pre-deployment training, while the other was to assess the missile’s performance in challenging conditions against a challenging target.Commanding Officer of HMS Montrose, Commander James Parkin, said:“Of all the times I have said ‘command approved’ in my career so far, it was this one that I enjoyed the most.“A successful firing of our Harpoon missiles has proven that my professional team of highly trained sailors are at the top of their game, and that we are ready for any tasking that we are given.” [mappress]Press Release, May 7, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: Montrose Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: HMS Montrose Successfully Fires Harpoon Missile Training & Education View post tag: Missile May 7, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: successfully View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: HMS View post tag: Fires View post tag: Defence View post tag: HARPOON UK: HMS Montrose Successfully Fires Harpoon Missile Share this articlelast_img read more

Paintbrushes and Pineapples

first_imgIn the summer of 2003, a group of five first-year students from Somerville travelled to Ghana in West Africa. They had planned to meet up with the 6,000 books they’d shipped over from England and set up a fully-functioning children’s library. If only life were that simple. To start at the beginning, the impetus and leading driving force behind the plan for the library was cheery oxford socialite Hattie Begg. She had previously spent four months of her Gap year, way back in ’02, volunteering in a Ghanaian hospital in the former British colonial capital, Cape Coast. During this time she developed a great relationship with her jovial Ghanaian host, Molly Yankey, whom the library was eventually named after. In order to try to address Ghana’s chronic literacy problems at the most local level, Molly encouraged Hattie to return with some enthusiastic friends to set up a local reading resource centre for the hundreds of children willing to learn but without any real opportunity to do so. On a cold and wet English April day the draw of scorching hot African sun certainly appealed. And hey, the charity bit sounded well worth a whirl. So as a team we went to work that Summer like very active squirrels desperately collecting acorns for an extremely harsh winter. We organised the bar at the Somerville garden party, put on charity golf tournaments and raffles, and generally sold ourselves to fund raise money for the materials we would need out there. With our travelwash, sun lotion and mozzie nets packed we were ready to set off. We were gonna rock over to Africa and wack up a library in just under a month. If we finished early maybe we could get in a bit of beach time as well. No, actually. The sailing was rarely plain and we faced often very demoralising challenges every step of the way. From the outset, the expedition got off to a disastrous start. Cancelled Ghana Airways flights saw us grimly disillusioned whilst we camped out at a sweltering Heathrow Airport for three whole days amongst sprawling queues of volatile travellers, who were rapidly losing their sense of humour at the situation. Being a group of girls, at this point floods of tears often seemed our best option to appeal to the good nature of the airport staff. Ghana, let alone the library, seemed a very long way away at that point. Upon finally reaching our destination we eagerly anticipated our first glimpse of the building that would house our library in Abura, Cape Coast. On arrival at the location we were met with the stark sight of solitary raw breeze blocks which encased a floor of mountainous sand and rock, over which the odd darting lizard scurried furtively for shelter. A month away from the opening date and the vast amount of work required was sharply brought home to us. We were going to have to get very busy and make a lot of contacts if we were to achieve our objectives in such a short space of time. This became particularly clear when we learned, with horror, that our 6,000 books (donated by the kind British public) intended for the library were trapped in the mindboggling swirl of Ghanaian shipping bureaucracy and top level corruptive forces. Getting our books released from the port would prove to be a longer-term goal; in the mean time we concerned ourselves with the here and now i.e. getting a mere shell of a room into a groovy-looking book haven full of child-sized furniture and horrendous clashes of bright colours. Long, hard days were spent purchasing materials, digging, painting, tiling, eating goat etc and keeping our Ghanaian builders motivated. If only British builders were as receptive to gifts of bread, biscuits and pineapples. As the work progressed, more and more of the local children came and watched us work, often gaining a dubious education from Glamour, Heat and Rugby World magazine, and the assorted hits of Christina Aguilera and Disney’s Aladdin. However, it was difficult to get across the actual purpose of the library given that its essence, the books, were still nowhere to be seen. We were beginning to get a little panicky about this as time slipped away from us. Eventually after numerous trips to the shipping port of Tema, six hours from where we were based, we decided to enlist the help of TPA (Teaching Projects Abroad) which run several charitable projects in the area. Their political muscle as an NGO and registered charity provided our negotiations with new weight and this, combined with a briefcase packed full of unmarked US dollars, eventually saw the books on their way to the newly christened ‘Molly’s Library’. After a month of extensive renovation work, we were ready to open the library to the public, and promoted it on a number of primetime TV and radio shows. Given that the project, in many ways, was very much like BBC’s flagship interior decoration show, Changing Rooms, we felt just like a frantic Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen prior to the big launch, and hoped the children would appreciate our somewhat wild use of colour. However, these worries were put aside. The lavish opening ceremony in front of the local community, the village chiefs and the Ghanaian media went fantastically well and it was very rewarding to see such genuine enthusiasm and excitement for what had been achieved. One year later, the long-term future looks bright for the library. This summer, four more students from Oxford are making the trip to West Africa to continue the project. They are planning to establish the second stage of the library, a much needed, fully stocked reading room for college and university age Ghanaians. We very much hope that this will be another small step towards the provision of education that will one day open doors for Ghana. If you have any books you would like to donate, particularly textbooks and reference works, please get in touch and we’ll happily take them off your hands. E-mail Maeve Gill at Somerville College.

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, April 3, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The state gets a little wet today with light rain overspreading the region. This morning and early afternoon, the northern part of the state will be most likely to be seeing rain. This afternoon and tonight, the central and southern thirds of the state will see better rain chances. Combined, we see rain totals for the entire event at a few hundredths to .4” with coverage at 70% of the state. Precipitation continues through a large part of tomorrow too, adding its best moisture totals early in the day, with action falling off in the afternoon an evening . It can add another tenth or two, but generally, we look for combined event rain totals to be at a half an inch or less over 90% of the state. We continue to forecast a great start to the weekend with sunshine dominating Saturday. Temps should moderate as well. But our next system remains on track to impact the second half of the weekend, with clouds increasing Saturday night. Rain arrives on Sunday and continues through Monday, even lingering into early Tuesday. Rain totals remain at .25”-.1” with coverage at near 90%. A few areas in southern southern Ohio may end up with better thunderstorms chances or perhaps multiple thunderstorms. That would push a few local areas above an inch of rain, but not many. The map at right shows rain totals from today through next Tuesday midday, which is a combined total of 2 weather systems. Later Tuesday and Wednesday will feature a mix of clouds and sun. We do not expect any well-organized shower action there. But we do see a better threat of rain coming later Wednesday night through Thursday and into early Friday. That system has really shown big signs of development over the past 24 hours and will shift in from NW to SE. Rain totals can be from .25”-1”, and we think there is good potential for some thunderstorm action. We turn out partly sunny on Friday and stay dry with sunshine through early the 14th. The extended period gets active rather quickly. We continue to watch several waves of moisture coming through for the 15th through the 18th. We are leaving rain potential at 1-3 inches for now, with coverage at nearly 100% of the state. We go drier for the 19th and 20th. But model agreement is fleeting, so there is plenty of time for data showing less moisture for the extended period to emerge.last_img read more
