The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Apopka Fire Stations #2 and #5 to cover its territoryBy Frank Torres, contributing writer for The Apopka VoiceOn Tuesday afternoon, Orange County Commissioners unanimously approved three interlocal agreements with the City of Apopka that includes the closure of County Fire Station 29, an aging station that has seen a shortage of service calls in recent years.The move is expected to improve reaction time in the region as a whole by 15%, and the county will also provide financial support to the city of Apopka for the extra area of coverage. No firefighters are expected to lose their positions, and there are no additional costs projected to residents.There was some public comment before the hearing by residents who believed the station still played a role in the area’s public safety and objected to the public meeting held on August 28th, the same day as Florida primary elections. Opponents suggested waiting until newly elected commissioners took office after the November general elections, or voting down the deal altogether.Commissioners and public officials only had positive feedback after the presentation.“We’re reducing response times with this new interlocal agreement with the backup of the county, as well as the city fire departments being involved in the process,” said Commissioner Rod Love, whose district 2 area covers Apopka.Apopka Fire Chief Chuck Carnesale was also pleased with the vote.“This will not only benefit the residents living in station 29’s area but will also benefit all of Northwest Orange County as we will be assisting them.”Fire Station 29 is expected to close on October 1st.

The Cove House embodies the client’s desire for a contemporary house that is respectful of both the New England vernacular and its immediate neighborhood. The form is an adaptation of the massing and materiality of the classic saltbox typology that meets the standards of the historic district commission while also satisfying the clients’ desire for a distinctive home.Save this picture!© Christian PhillipsSiteThe site is marked by a shallow ravine that was previously home to the historic Webster Rose Garden. While the gardens were lost decades before, the original retaining walls remain, and the garden was replanted with native plantings that provide erosion control, animal habitats, and storm water attenuation. Today, visitors cross this garden on a new footbridge spanning from the parking court to the front entrance of the house.Save this picture!© Christian PhillipsSave this picture!Lower Level PlanSave this picture!© Nikolas KoenigSave this picture!Upper Level PlanMassingThe form was inspired by the sailing ships that once anchored in the neighboring harbor. The house is created from a sequence of volumes that are linked below grade. The existing slope of the site allows for the two primary volumes to nestle into the landscape, presenting a low presence to the street while exposing the full height of the house to the ocean. The massing defines an upper utility court and kitchen garden, and a dynamic interstitial space that frames the ocean view.Save this picture!© Christian PhillipsMaterialityAlaskan yellow cedar shingles typical of the Cape Cod vernacular further integrate the home into the existing streetscape.

Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge News July 29, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of journalist Subramaniam Ramachandran, who went missing north of Jaffna on 15 February. The circumstances of his disappearance prove that the army was involved. July 15, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Sri Lanka March 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Army said to be holding tamil journalist who went missing five weeks ago Help by sharing this information to go further Sri LankaAsia – Pacific News Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Receive email alerts Organisation RSF_en Following the police chief’s recent admission that the security forces have been involved in abductions, Reporters Without Borders today said it was in a position to affirm that the military participated in the arrest of journalist Subramaniam Ramachandran on 15 February north of Jaffna. Colleagues think he is now being held secretly at a military camp.”We appeal to the authorities to take action to locate and Ramachandran and have him released,” the press freedom organisation said. “The fact that the government publicly acknowledges the participation of the security forces in kidnapping and forced disappearance is very worrying, but at the same time gives us hope that Ramachandran is still alive.”Prior to his abduction in the Vadamaradchi area to the north of Jaffna, Ramachandran had written for the Tamil daily Yarl Thinakural about the involvement of a businessman and military officers in sand illegal trafficking. His stories gave such details as the licence numbers of the vehicles involved and the businessman’s connections with certain officers. Following their publication, a judge intervened and ordered the confiscation of a vehicle used in the trafficking. At the same time, Tamil Tigers torched another vehicle used by the traffickers. All this angered the businessman and the soldiers concerned.Ramachandran seems to have been threatened by the Tamil Tigers in the past for having good relations with members of the security forces. The LTTE intelligence services are said to have investigated him in November 2006 after he took photos of a meeting organised in honour of its top leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran. But colleagues said he was no longer under threat from the LTTE at the time of his kidnapping.The circumstances of his disappearance establish beyond any doubt that the army was involved. Accompanied by a friend, he left the school he runs in Karaveddy at around 6 p.m. on 15 February. When they arrived next to the Kalikai Junction military camp, soldiers ordered them to stop for questioning. Ramachandran was taken into the camp while his friend was asked to leave.According to witness, a vehicle containing a military intelligence officer, two members of the EPDP (a pro-government Tamil militia) and an army informer arrived one hour later, and then left a few minutes after that with Ramachandran. His family has had no word of him since then. Several Jaffna-based journalists say he is being held in a military camp in the north of the island.

Home » News » Land & New Homes » Bovis reports ‘difficult’ year as snagging bill hits £7.8m previous nextLand & New HomesBovis reports ‘difficult’ year as snagging bill hits £7.8mMove follows profit warning in January and departure of chief executiveNigel Lewis21st February 20170865 Views Shares in top ten house builder Bovis dropped by over 10% yesterday after it revealed that £7.8 million will have to be spent on fixing poorly-built properties.Bovis also said it would be reducing the number of homes it sold during 2017 by up to 15% following a ‘difficult year for the group following a period of ambitious growth’ and that it would be resetting the business and ‘putting the customer back at the centre of everything we do’.The Kent-based company says this is to include improved customer training for all staff, better quality assurance, more effective customer complaints procedures and the creation of a Homebuyers Panel.This is in reaction to recent criticism of the company for putting sales targets ahead of other considerations. This prompted so many homebuyer complaints that a Facebook page with nearly 1,500 members has been formed, and The Guardian newspaper recently completed a highly critical investigation into its build quality and sales tactics.Bovis Homes, which is the ninth largest house builder in the UK by turnover, completed 4,000 properties last year.The company is currently marketing over 110 developments across approximately 30 counties in England from North Y Yorkshire to Devon of which 72% are houses, 21% social housing and 7% apartments.“We have a clear set of operational priorities for 2017 and are fully committed to improving our levels of customer service and delivering high quality homes this year and in the future,” says Earl Sibley, its interim chief executive (pictured), who replaced David Ritchie last month after the company issued a profit warning.“The fundamentals of the business remain strong with a robust financial position and high quality land bank. With our focus on higher levels of customer service, improved build efficiency, and a refreshed culture, we are confident we will generate enhanced shareholder returns over the medium term.”homes bovis February 21, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

More than two-thirds of office workers have sandwiches for lunch, according to new research.In a survey, carried out by Ipsos Mori for BaxterStorey, researchers found that 92% of office workers eat lunch, 78% are regular snackers, and of these, 20% snack on crisps while 27% snack on biscuits.”Of those who rarely or never eat lunch, 27% also never eat breakfast during the working week,” said the report. Only 17% eat breakfast every day and the same number eat breakfast between just one and three times in the week.Face-to-face research was conducted from 28 September to 2 November 2007. A nationally representative sample of 1,015 office workers aged 15-plus in the UK were interviewed.
David Powell, Deputy Master of the Worshipful Company of Bakers and global director innovation/bakery, Rich ProductsAnd so to Paris in glorious spring sunshine for Europain. It was eye-wateringly cold, so spare a thought for a delegation from the National Baking Industry Association (NBIA) of Australia who had left temperatures of 28C to fly over.In many ways, their attendance at a French exhibition was odd, as yet again my trip highlighted that although the UK and France are separated by only 20 miles of water and getting closer, with the new St Pancras Eurostar link, in baking terms the gulf is very wide and probably increasing.As an example, on my way to catch the train home I made a small detour via Arnaud Delmontel (www.arnaud-delmontel.com). Apart from being Patisserie of the Year in 2006 and winner of the Best Baguette in Paris, it is also the bakery of choice for President Sarkozy and Carla Bruni’s daily baguette. In Britain, do we know or would we care where Gordon and Sarah buy their bread? And if we did, I suspect most would assume it was based on some commercial or sponsorship deal, rather than taste and quality.My discussion with a couple of the Australian group highlighted that although our two countries are separated by over 10,000 miles, in terms of bakery we are very similar and share many of the same issues: recruitment of good young people; a lack of quality accredited training; a reliance on often transient immigrant labour; constant downward price pressures and so on.The NBIA is working very hard to get some formalised training system in place and seems to be achieving some success, although it struggles with a reluctance from employers to release employees or to contribute financially. Sound familiar?They also mentioned a reluctance to work together to the common good and the vast distances between settlements. Yards from where we were talking, a large part of Hall 1 was dedicated to French baking schools and institutions, all busily selling their courses to enthusiastic youngsters, and the end of the Hall was taken over with numerous identical mini bakeries for the students’ live competitions.One other thought that my meeting highlighted was how fortunate we are in the UK with our proximity to bakery shows. They are, or should be, essential visiting for anyone involved in the trade who wants to catch up on current trends, ideas and innovation. It only takes one idea that ends up in your shop or product range to more than justify the cost of the trip.So I hope to see you at one or more of this year’s shows or even at the Mobec exhibition in Tokyo next year? Yes, I know it’s nearer to Australia, but a visit there and to the bakery shops in Tokyo will transform your thinking!
