The lane closures from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. will allow crews to restripe and adjust the lanes on southbound SR 429.The adjustment will result in the Connector Road eastbound, coming from US 441, having one through lane and one right turn lane onto SR 429. Westbound vehicles on the Connector Road turning left onto SR 429 southbound will have a dedicated lane and no longer will have to merge. During the night work to make the adjustments, traffic still will be able to make all of the movements at the interchange.Bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances could delay or prolong work. Motorists are urged to use caution in the construction area for their safety and that of the work crews.This work is part of the Central Florida Expressway Authority’s $56 million project to build the Wekiva Parkway from where the SR 429 currently ends at the Connector Road to just north of Ponkan Road. Once completed, the 25-mile parkway will complete Central Florida’s beltway, while helping to protect the natural resources surrounding the Wekiva River.

This low-maintenance, year-round luxury home, located in Ghent, NY (Upper Hudson Valley) features a variety of green building methodologies. It also addresses the client’s request for a home with connections and views to the outdoors, accommodations for a multi-generational family (four bedrooms), a flexible studio space for the wife’s artwork and a below-grade wine cellar for the husband’s winemaking. The sloping site and limited budget all created unique opportunities in the creation of a custom home that could exist comfortably off the grid.Save this picture!© James ChororosRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAThe first challenge was to maximize the million-dollar views of the Hudson River Valley and Catskill Mountains to the West while controlling the winter winds and summer sun from the same direction. The elongated rectilinear plan, kept simple to minimize cost, is oriented to the West to ensure every room had access to the views. A majority of the house is lifted on concrete columns to maximize the views and also provide a covered ground plane for protected parking and outdoor living. As part of the budget strategy, future additions to the house can be built on this ground level within the existing structure.Save this picture!DiagramThe narrow cross section also means cross breezes can easily cool the house in the summer and the winter sun can reach far into the interior. Mapos conducted extensive solar studies in order to design a custom screen on the West façade that would shade the house from the heat of the summer sun, block western winds, and allow the penetration of winter sun in the colder months. These winter rays can be absorbed by concrete floors throughout the house to augment the heating system. The passive strategies mean that the house was well on its way to better efficiency before the mechanical systems and technologies were even considered in the design process.Save this picture!© James ChororosFor the structure, Mapos devised a hybrid system of concrete, steel, and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), each strategically utilized to create a lightweight, rigid, and highly energy efficient shell. Combining structure, sheathing, and insulation in one product, the SIPs panels were installed throughout the house in only three days. For the building envelope, a long-lasting steel standing-seam roof capped maintenance-free fiber-cement board cladding. The windows and patio doors, all made from super low-E insulated glass, open onto the amazing views and give easy access to expansive decks and a pool terrace.Save this picture!© James ChororosThe interior, totaling 3,500 square feet (325 square meters), emphasizes a careful economy of materials which respond to the client’s preference for exposed materials and highlights of bold color. The interior palette includes buffed concrete countertops and floors with radiant heat, precast concrete tiles, no-and low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) paints and clear-coat finishes, LED lighting systems, Energy Star appliances, water-sense fixtures, and wood treads reclaimed from on-site structural members.Save this picture!© James ChororosThe design also utilizes shaded window systems, deep overhangs, high ceilings, and light colors to maximize natural passive cooling, while geothermal heating and cooling with radiant in-floor heating guarantee year round comfort on even the harshest days. The house also features the next generation of roof integrated PV technology. The long sloping roof culminates in a below-grade rainwater reclamation cistern for irrigating the client’s extensive organic vegetable garden.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessCraigieburn Library / Francis-Jones Morehen ThorpSelected ProjectsWhy Not Hand A Hermit Crab a Shelter?Architecture News Share Architects: Mapos Area Area of this architecture project 2013 2013 Montagnaro House / MaposSave this projectSaveMontagnaro House / Mapos Houses Save this picture!© James Chororos+ 17 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/538715/montagnaro-house-mapos Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/538715/montagnaro-house-mapos Clipboardlast_img read more

Researchers Find Key to Destroying Salmonella’s Effectiveness

first_img Researchers at The Ohio State University believe fructose-asparagine – made of a sugar and amino acid stuck together – could be important in making salmonella less potent and destructive – according to Meatingplace. This nutrient is salmonella’s sole food source in an inflamed intestine – and lead study author Brian Ahmer says blocking activation of one of five genes that transport the nutrient to salmonella cells could help fight infection. SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Researchers Find Key to Destroying Salmonella’s Effectiveness For most bacteria – getting rid of one nutrient acquisition system wouldn’t matter – but for salmonella – getting rid of this nutrient is bad news.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Ashok S Kinagi gave the direction while hearing a petition filed by the Advocate Clerks Association. The bench took into the written submissions filed by the State Government wherein it is contended that out of a sum of Rs.5.00 crores granted to the Bar Council,some portion has to be set apart by the Bar Council for the benefit of the advocates’ clerks. The court issued the direction after the counsel for the State Bar Council submitted that the state government had not clarified the specific amount to be set aside for the clerks. Advocate Murthy D Naik appearing for the clerks association contended that an amount of Rs 25 lakh should be set aside out of the grant and it should be disbursed to the needy clerks at the earliest. As regards the issue raised in the petition filed by Advocates Association of Bengaluru challenging the conditions laid down by the Bar Council for the disbursement of the grant ,the court granted time till October 14 to file their statement of objections. The Association has sought to quash and set aside the scheme framed on August 26, by the State Bar Council stating that discriminatory conditions were imposed for the lawyers seeking financial assistance. Under the said scheme lady advocates, lawyers above 40 years of age and those enrolled after January 1, 2010 are not eligible for seeking financial assistance. The court has in its order dated September 2, said the scheme has to be a fair and transparent scheme, considering the fact that the amount of Rs 5 crore transferred by the government constitutes public money. Additional Advocate General (AAG) is also directed to address the court on the nature of the scheme. On the previous hearing the State Bar Council informed the court that 1163 applications received from advocates were rejected while 7844 applications were sanctioned and an amount of Rs 3,29,20,000 has been disbursed to the needy advocates out of the state grant.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Breonna Taylor case: Breonna’s Law passed to ban no-knock warrants

first_imgBreonna Taylor FamilyBy EMILY SHAPIRO, CHRISTINA CARREGA and MARK OSBORNE, ABC News(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — The Louisville, Kentucky, Metro Council unanimously passed Breonna’s Law — named in honor of police-shooting victim Breonna Taylor — on Thursday evening, outlawing “no-knock” warrants and requiring body cameras be turned on before and after every search.Taylor, a 26-year-old black woman, was shot by Louisville police when they executed a no-knock warrant while she slept in her home on March 13.The shooting took place when the home Taylor, a front-line health care worker, shared with her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, was raided by three plainclothes officers. Police said the no-knock warrant was related to drugs.A standing ovation broke out on the council after the 26-0 vote Thursday. A crowd outside also applauded the decision.“I’m proud to be a Louisvillian. This is probably the proudest moment I have had as a member of this council. So, it’s a good day to be a Louisvillain. The entire world is watching us,” District 1 Councilwoman Jessica Green told Louisville ABC affiliate WHAS-TV after the vote.Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, was elated after the vote.“I know if Breonna was here today, she’d be looking down thinking I’m making history,” Palmer said following the council meeting. “She just really cared about saving lives and so she’ll get to continue to do that with Breonna’s law. I know she’d be blessed. I’m blessed. I’m happy. It’s a start.”The officers involved in the shooting were not wearing body cameras, although others in the department wore them. With the passing of Breonna’s Law, police officers are now subject to punishment if they do not turn on body cameras five minutes before and after searches.The detective who applied for the no-knock warrant that resulted in the police death of Breonna Taylor has now been reassigned, authorities said late Wednesday.Walker, 27, called 911 as shots rang out, and bullets were exchanged between the officers and Walker, a licensed gun owner, according to Sam Aguiar, an attorney for Taylor’s family.“Questions have been raised … about how and why the search warrant was approved,” Louisville Metro acting Police Chief Robert Schroeder said at a news conference Wednesday. “As a result of those questions, I have placed Detective Joshua Jaynes, who applied for the warrant, on administrative reassignment until those questions can be answered.”No charges have been filed in connection with Taylor’s death.The officers who responded that night were previously reassigned.
