The Gamble House is the most complete and best-preserved example of American Arts and Crafts style architecture. The house and furnishings were designed by famed architects Charles and Henry Greene in 1908 for David and Mary Gamble of the Procter & Gamble Company. The house, designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1978, is owned by the City of Pasadena and operated by the University of Southern California School of Architecture. The Gamble House is open for public, docent-led tours and for specialty tours and programs.On January 14, 1966, members of the Gamble family, the City of Pasadena, and the University of Southern California signed a formal gift agreement, and in September of that year the doors of the Gamble House were opened to the public. In the half century since then, The Gamble House has become one of the most beloved premier historic sites in America.A series of celebratory anniversary events will take place throughout September 2016 including an invitation only dinner for major donors; a fundraising reception to kick-off a new endowment campaign to raise funds to continue to protect the Gamble family’s generous legacy gift to the public with another decade of conscientious preservation; a reception to recognize the contributions of Gamble House docents through the years; an Alumni Day Open House for former Gamble House Scholars in Residence and the USC School of Architecture; and a 50th Anniversary public celebration on Sunday, September 25, with self-paced tours and family-friendly activities and entertainment.Visitors continue to visit, week in and week out, from around the world to marvel at the beauty imbedded in every square foot of The Gamble House. They come to experience what Charles Greene called “architecture as a fine art.” Hailed by the American Institute of Architects as “formulators of a new and native architecture,” Charles Sumner Greene (1868–1957) and Henry Mather Greene (1870–1954) designed houses and furnishings a century ago that established a new paradigm for the art of architecture in the United States. Drawing on the skills of outstanding craftsmen, as well as their own polytechnic training, formal architectural education, and natural artistic sensibilities, Greene and Greene created legendary living environments that were beautiful, functional and modern.The flowering of the Greenes’ careers together was brief and typically benefited a discriminating and wealthy clientele. They produced their most characteristic work between 1906 and 1914, primarily in and around Pasadena. Of their fully coordinated houses with interior furnishings, only the Gamble House survives intact.For more information on the Gamble House and their 50th Anniversary please visit www.gamblehouse.org.

DSC Dredge Delivers Its First Tier 4 Final Dredger

first_imgDSC Dredge, based in Reserve, Louisiana, delivered earlier this year its first-ever dredge equipped with a Tier 4 Final C32 ACERT Caterpillar engine to a minerals company located in the United States. This Shark Class Dredge features an 18-inch hull-mounted dredge pump and 300 hp cutter drive assembly, and has a dredging depth capability of 56 feet.DSC supplied stainless steel hydraulic fittings and used anti-corrosion building practices, as the dredge will be working in a corrosive environment. The minerals company also purchased an anchor barge fabricated by DSC, which included a Tier 4 Final engine for the hydraulic winch drive system.“The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier 4 Final emissions standards went into effect for dredges last year. Engines ranging from 2,682 to 4,962 hp (2,000-3,700 kW) were first affected by the standards. But by this October (2017), all new engines with a maximum power of 804 hp (600 kW) and greater must meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards,” DSC said.The Tier 4 rules were enacted to further reduce two main pollutants that diesel engines emit when they run – particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). NOx contributes to the formation of ground-level ozone, which is a primary factor in air pollution. Exposure to PM has been shown to adversely affect the respiratory system, according to the EPA.DSC worked closely with Caterpillar for this “green” build.According to David Ezell, OEM Account Manager for Michigan CAT, “DSC and Michigan CAT utilized a strong engineering collaboration to install the first Tier 4 Final engine in a DSC Shark dredge – the C32 Tier 4 Final 1,125 hp. The C32 Tier 4 Final engine is a 32-liter 12-cylinder V-engine with horsepower ranges from 1,000 hp to 1,125 hp. The C32 has industry-leading torque of 4,056 foot-pounds at 1200 rpm.”Ezell explains that Caterpillar was able to achieve the Tier 4 Final regulations in the C32 with the use of the Caterpillar NOx Reduction System and dual maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalysts (DOC).“The robust Caterpillar Tier 4 Final engines were tested and proved with over 4.6 million hours of in-field testing and validation to deliver highest horsepower and torque ratings with lowest cost of ownership in the industry,” he adds.The DSC Shark Class dredge offers standard discharge sizes ranging from 10 inches (250 mm) to 24 inches (600 mm), which are customizable upon request. It has a conventional dredge-operating configuration with a modular design for easy transport, said DSC.last_img read more

‘Excited’ Williams joins Chelsea Ladies

first_imgEngland international Rachel Williams says she cannot wait for the season to start after agreeing a move to Chelsea Ladies. Williams, signed from Birmingham City Ladies, will form part of a mouthwatering attack that includes fellow England international Eniola Aluko and Fifa Women’s Player of the Year nominee Yuki Ogimi.Despite being only 25, Williams has enjoyed a successful career to date, representing England on 10 occasions, as well as forming part of Hope Powell’s Team GB squad at last year’s Olympics.Domestically, Williams was the FA WSL’s top scorer with 14 goals in 14 matches and Players’ Player of the Year in 2011, while she was twice a runner-up in the league with Birmingham.And Williams, who began her career at hometown club Leicester City Women, is targeting a successful campaign in her new surroundings under manager Emma Hayes.She said: “I’m really excited and have been ever since I met up with [assistant manager] Paul Green and Emma and they told me what they are determined to do here.Williams is set to link up with Ogimi“They are determined to be competitive next year and I am really looking forward to it.“I came and met Paul and Emma here and was impressed with what I saw.“The set-up behind the scenes is impressive as are the staff, players and training facilities – it really is top class and all I want to do now is crack on and play football.“It’s definitely an exciting move. I’ve always played with my heart on my sleeve and I will do the same here at Chelsea and hopefully it will bring success.“The groundwork is there and they are strengthening for next year and hopefully I can come in and work alongside Yuki and Eni or maybe just off Yuki up front, which I feel will be really good for me and the club and I look forward to it.“With Yuki being nominated as world player I know there will be a lot to learn but there is also Eni who I know from England and I look forward to working with her and learning from her both at club and international level.“It’s an exciting season for sure and hopefully we can win something.”Williams’ international career is yet to hit the heights many expect it will do in the future, with Powell omitting her from the Euro 2009 squad and the World Cup two years later.Powell has since vacated her position with the national team ,with Brent Hills the current caretaker manager, and Williams is confident her move to Chelsea Ladies will prove the catalyst her England career needs.“My international career has come to a bit of a stop but I know this is the right club to get me back in the window for England,” she added.“I am just going to work hard and ensure whoever the next England manager will be I catch their eye and they think ‘you know what, we need her in the England team’.” See also:Chelsea Ladies sign Brazilian midfield starChelsea Ladies sign Japan World Cup starChelsea Ladies star sees bright future for women’s football in EnglandChelsea Ladies star shortlisted by FifaChelsea Ladies to head to Japan for Women’s Club ChampionshipChelsea Ladies star relishing Japan tripChelsea Ladies sign another England starChelsea Ladies sign duo from 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Fisheries groups opposing Nova Scotia mills proposed effluent treatment plant

first_imgHALIFAX – Opposition is mounting against a plan by a kraft pulp mill in Nova Scotia to pump treated waste into the Northumberland Strait, with a group of Maritime fisheries organizations saying the effluent could harm marine life.The group, which includes the Pictou Landing First Nation in Nova Scotia, said the proposal from Northern Pulp Nova Scotia Corp. could see the release of up to 90 million litres of effluent per day into the strait, posing a threat to fish species and protected areas along the coastline.The other members of the group include the Gulf Nova Scotia Fleet Planning Board, the Maritime Fishermen’s Union, the Prince Edward Island Fishermen’s Association and the New Brunswick Fisheries Association.Under provincial legislation, Northern Pulp has until 2020 to replace its current effluent treatment plant in Boat Harbour near Pictou, N.S. — a deadline the company has said will be tough to meet.The group said other options should be explored, such as a land-based effluent treatment facility. They said rigorous scientific research is needed to assess the impact.“The provincial government is asking us to take 100 per cent of the risk. Our concern is what is in the effluent. What’s going to do to our fishery? What’s the construction of the pipe going to do to our fishery?” said Ron Heighton, president of the Gulf Nova Scotia Fleet Planning Board.Local fishermen, Nova Scotia Mi’kmaq chiefs and Prince Edward Island Premier Wade MacLauchlan are among those who have voiced concerns about Northern Pulp’s plan, saying it could have unintended consequences for fisheries in the area.Kathy Cloutier, spokeswoman for Paper Excellence Canada, which owns Northern Pulp, said in an email statement that effluent has been flowing into the strait for 50 years, and the proposed drainage site is not far from the current one.“The new system will make it so that the treated effluent, in part due to planned in-mill improvements, will be of better quality with a smaller environmental footprint than what is currently in place,” Cloutier said.She said the company investigated its treatment options and determined it needed a drainage point to pump waste.“The bottom line is no pipe equals no mill,” she said.Cloutier added: “Scientific studies are being completed with rigour, and First Nations, community and stakeholder engagement is occurring throughout the study.”The mill in Abercrombie, N.S., announced plans for a new treatment plant in December and is to submit an environmental assessment to Nova Scotia’s Environment Department in July.According to the company’s plan, waste would be treated at a new facility near the mill using a system that would meet all federal environmental standards.The effluent would be carried by polyethylene pipe across Pictou Harbour and then released through six pipes into the strait.Nova Scotia’s deputy environment minister Frances Martin faced questions about the plan at a public accounts committee meeting last month. She said she made the decision to go with a Class 1 environmental assessment last June after Northern Pulp filed a project description with the department at the end of April.She said it was clear to her the project required a Class 1 assessment instead of the more lengthy Class 2 under provincial regulations. Martin said Class 2 assessments are used in cases of larger projects, such as the building of a petro-chemical plant or pulp mill.But Heighton said he would like to see a federal environmental assessment.“We need every bit of science so we can understand what’s going on,” said Heighton. “We cannot accept anything less.”— Follow (at)AlyThomson on Twitter.last_img read more

HC upholds cancellation of LS poll in Vellore

first_imgChennai: The Madras High Court Wednesday upheld the Election Commission’s decision cancelling the election in Tamil Nadu’s Vellore Lok Sabha constituency.A bench of justices S Manikumar and Subramonium Prasad dismissed petitions filed by AIADMK-led alliance candidate in the constituency, A C Shanmugham, and an Independent, K Sugumar, seeking to set aside the order cancelling the election which was slated for Thursday. The EC had on Tuesday cancelled the polls in Vellore — one of the 39 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state — over allegations of excess use of money power. President Ram Nath Kovind had rescinded the notification to hold election to the seat based on an EC recommendation after “black money” worth Rs 11.53 crore, allegedly linked to DMK candidate Kathir Anand, was seized by the Income Tax Department on the intervening night of March 29-30. When the petitions were taken up for urgent hearing, the counsel for the EC submitted a report in a sealed cover to the court. Citing a Supreme Court verdict in its order, the bench said, “Legislatures are no Prophets, but pragmatic. Hence, comprehensive provisions have been made in Art 324 of the Constitution to take care of surprise situations.” The bench also said the EC, which has the power to issue notification for conducting polls, also has the power to recommend cancellation if it has arrived at the view that it is necessary to countermand it. The EC, after going through various reports of the Income Tax Authorities, Special Observers for Expenditure had come to the conclusion that there was enough material to cancel the election, it said. The commission informed the court that the cash was packed in covers with names and slips with details of whom it was to be paid to, the bench noted. Senior counsel Satish Parasaran, appearing for Shanmugham, contended the cancellation of the election due to seizure of cash allegedly linked to the DMK candidate was illegal, arbitrary and disproportionate. Referring to Section 8A of the Representation of the People Act, he argued appropriate remedy in cases of corrupt practices was disqualification of the concerned candidate and not countermanding the election as a whole in the constituency. The legislature in its wisdom had envisaged countermanding or adjournment of elections only in such cases as law and order violations and natural disasters and not in cases of corrupt practices, he added. The Union Law Ministry, which issued the order, and the President, who rescinded the notification, have no such powers after the announcement of the elections, Parasaran contended.last_img read more

The personnel used a personal watercraft to rescue the victim, finding him unconscious and not breathing.The lifeguards performed CPR on the man on the beach prior to the arrival of an ambulance crew, which took him to UCSD Medical Center in unknown condition.The victim’s dog made it back to shore unharmed, Ysea said.A roughly 36-hour period of dangerously high surf began this morning, prompting authorities to issue beach-area safety warnings and temporarily close Ocean Beach Pier as a precaution. center_img KUSI Newsroom Man Dies after Lifeguards rescue him in Ocean Beach Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more
