The owners of the as-yet-unbuilt Cliff House have teamed up with Modscape of Australia to design their compact dream home, delicately perched above open water, hanging off the cliff’s edge. Cliff House redefines “living dangerously” with its vast floor to ceiling windows and slender steel supports acting as the only separation between watching Jaws and actually being in Jaws.Dive into Cliff House with images, plans and more info after the break.Save this picture!Living Room Interior.

As if in a James Bond film, the car is parked atop the sleek home where the user can enter through a discreet staircase leading to the space below. Once inside, users discover the panoramic views offered in each of the glass-encased spaces. The spaces are stacked to grow more private from top to bottom, with the kitchen stacked above the living room, stacked above the bedrooms, with a private terrace beneath. The modestly proportioned home includes a full kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms including an ensuite, and a spa on the open air terrace. Save this picture!Elevation. Image Courtesy of ModscapeModscape takes its name from its signature modular design style, rooted in sustainability and speed. Modscape was challenged to rethink its typical modular design for Cliff House due to its remote location on the coast of Australia. The home will be constructed of several stacked modular units anchored into the face of the cliff using engineered steel pins. In response to extreme coastal conditions, the oceanside wall of the of the home tapers toward the cliffside creating an angled glass-curtain interior throughout the home.Save this picture!Living Room Interior. Image Courtesy of ModscapeThe home is designed to emulate barnacles as they cling to the hull of a ship, hence its position below the edge of the cliff. The designers at Modscape have described the home as a “natural extension of the cliff face rather than an addition to the landscape, creating an absolute connection with the ocean.” All it needs now is 007 himself and an invisible Aston Martin in the garage. ArchitectsModscape Area285.0 sqmProject Year2014PhotographsCourtesy of ModscapeProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Interviews: Will Bruder / Will Bruder ArchitectsInterviewsMola Structural Kit: A New Way to Learn About StructuresArchitecture News Share Projects “COPY” Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/547904/jump-off-a-cliff-and-land-in-bed-in-this-edgy-australian-home Clipboard Save this picture!Exterior View.

Senate Passes PNTR for Russia

first_img Previous articleIndiana Corn Growers Elect New Leadership TeamNext articleOfficer Team Elected by Indiana Corn Marketing Council Board Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Dec 6, 2012 Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate Passes PNTR for Russia SHARE The Senate on Thursday approved legislation that will normalize trade between the U.S. and Russia and allow the U.S. to take advantage of the trade benefits resulting from Russia’s admission to the World Trade Organization. The American Farm Bureau Federation and American Soybean Association applauded the Senate for approving this critical legislation. Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman says America’s farmers and ranchers will have more certain and predictable market access as a result of Russia’s commitment not to raise tariffs on any products above the negotiated rates and to apply international food safety standards in a uniform and transparent manner. He adds that Russia’s membership in the WTO will provide significant commercial opportunities for U.S. agriculture – including increased sales of poultry, pork and beef. ASA President Steve Wellman called on President Obama to sign the bill into law so U.S. farmers can compete in one of the world’s largest and most promising economies.

Justice Najmi Wazari had further directed thus: “The duly authorized representative of the Insurance company, shall appear before the DCF (South) on 27.12.2019, who shall indicate to the authorized representative the forest lands under his care where the trees shall be planted. The trees shall be of deciduous indigenous variety and they shall have a nursery age of three and a half years and shall have a minimum height of at least six feet.”Before the Apex Court, the Insurance company contended that the said condition imposed is unworkable in its character since the Insurance Company cannot look after the trees and that the panacea should have been addressed by imposition of cost.We are in agreement with the submission of the learned counsel for the appellant to the extent that the latter part of the order possibly become unworkable, said the bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Ajay Rastogi. The bench, while setting aside these directions, further observed that the appropriate course of action for the High Court should have been to dismiss the appeal in this case.Delhi HC’s ‘Plant Trees’ OrdersThere are many such orders of the Delhi High Court in which it has issued such  ‘plant trees’ directions. Recently, as a condition to grant more time to file a reply,  Justice Najmi Wazri directed the Delhi Development Authority to pay costs by way of donation and plantation of 50 trees in the green area being developed by DDA in the lands abutting Abul Fazal Enclave/Jamia area. In March, this year, the Judge allowed Municipal Corporation of Delhi’s application for condonation of delay, subject to it planting 500 trees in the riot affected areas of Delhi within 2 weeks. It appears that such directions are being issued since mid-last year.’Plant Trees’ Bail ConditionsMadhya Pradesh and Orissa High Courts had recently imposed planting Of saplings as a Bail Condition. “This direction is made by this Court as a test case to address the Anatomy of Violence and Evil by process of Creation and a step towards Alignment with Nature. The natural instinct of compassion, service, love and mercy needs to be rekindled for human existence as they are innately engrained attributes of human existence,” Justice Anand Pathak of Madhya Pradesh HC had observed in the order.Last year, while ordering release of a ‘convict’ who was later found to be a juvenile at the time of incident of crime, the Supreme Court had directed him to plant 100 trees within a period of one year.

Family, friends gather at George Floyd’s funeral service in Houston

first_imgBob Levey/Getty ImagesBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(HOUSTON) — A three-state, five-day final journey for George Floyd ended Tuesday in Houston, the city he called home for most of his life.Thousands of mourners, including longtime friends and family members, gathered for the final funeral services at The Fountain of Praise church at 11 a.m. local time. Many wore face black face coverings and remained distant in the pews as pallbearers brought Floyd’s gold-colored casket up the aisle.Floyd, 46, grew up in the city’s Third Ward, where those who knew him said he was loved by friends and family alike. They often referred to the 6-foot, 6-inch man as a “gentle giant.”On Monday the church held a six-hour public viewing of Floyd’s body that was attended by thousands of mourners including former Vice President Joe Biden and Gov. Greg Abbott. Biden is slated to give a video message during Tuesday’s private service.Other dignitaries in attendance included the Rev. Al Sharpton, U.S. Rep. Al Green, Former Houston Mayor Annise Parker, Channing Tatum and Houston Texans player J.J. Watt.Following the funeral, Floyd will be buried in Houston Memorial Gardens in Pearland, next to his mother, according to the family’s representatives.There were also memorial and viewing services in Minneapolis and in North Carolina, where Floyd was born, with thousands of people and dignitaries including the Rev. Al Sharpton in attendance.Floyd played football for Houston’s Yates High School as a tight end and was part of the team that went to the state championship in 1992. He remained active in the community, particularly in his church, and helped organize events including Bible studies and basketball tournaments.In 2007, Floyd was charged with armed robbery and sentenced to five years in prison as part of a plea deal in 2009. After he was released from prison, Floyd moved to Minneapolis for better job opportunities and held several jobs including working as a bouncer at a restaurant.Floyd stayed close to his Houston family and friends and kept in close contact with his daughter Gianna, 6, and her mother Roxie Washington. He was planning on bringing them to Minneapolis full-time, according to friends and family.On May 25, a convenience store clerk called 911 and reported that Floyd had used a phony $20 bill to pay for cigarettes. Four police officers, Derek Chauvin, Thomas Lane, Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao, answered the call and arrested Floyd outside of his car.The arrest was captured on several cameras as Chauvin placed Floyd on the ground and put his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes while Floyd said “I can’t breathe” before going lifeless. The officers were fired from the force and all were subsequently arrested.Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges, while the other three were charged with second-degree aiding and abetting felony murder and second-degree aiding and abetting manslaughter.Floyd’s death sparked protests around the world calling for equal justice and police reform.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

German Navy looks into why so few women join the service

first_img The German Navy currently has only 160 female officers wearing dark blue uniforms as opposed to 4,000 of their male counterparts.Given the fact that women were allowed to enter professional service in 2001, the numbers as they currently stand are not to the liking of the Inspector of the German Navy, Vice Admiral Andreas Krause.It was only in 2014 that the German Navy received its first female submarine officer when 27-year-old (at the time) Janine Asseln joined the Type 212 U31 submarine as the 4th watch officer.Krause has therefore initiated a workshop with the goal of making Navy service more attractive for women. Navy officials will meet in September 2016 to analyze the current situation for women in service with the naval forces.“We (as a service) are obviously not properly aligned for female regulars. We want to see why that is the case in order to improve things,” said Vice Admiral Andreas Krause. “I would like to see more women in leadership positions at the navy in the future.”The attractiveness measures initiated by the German Minister of Defense Ursula von der Leyen have made significant impact on the defense forces’ appeal on soldiers. Many steps aimed at reconciling family and service like flextime and teleworking tasks cannot, however, be adequately implemented on board navy ships.With the announced workshop the Inspector of the Navy now wants to make sure what it is that makes women turn away from the navy.

Chance The Rapper Makes A $1 Million Donation To Chicago Public Schools

first_imgWe’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Chance The Rapper is the man. Today he’s totally outdone himself, announcing in a press conference that he will be donating $1 million to the public school system in his hometown of Chicago, IL.Chance recently met with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner to talk about the issue, and came back disappointed with the outcome. “While I am disappointed in Gov. Rauner, that will not stop me from doing all I can to support Chicago’s most valuable resource: its children,” he said in the conference, before revealing news of the donation. “This isn’t about politics, this isn’t about posturing, this is about taking care of the kids,” he concluded, before adding, “Governor Rauner, do your job!”He ultimately thanked his fans for the opportunity to make such a large donation, for supporting him financially by buying his tickets. Chance has also publicly spoken out against scalpers, ensuring that his real fans get the tickets. That he would spend his hard earned money to make his home city better place speaks volumes about his character. Well done, Chance. Well done.last_img read more
