Located in the urban outskirts of Munich, the detached single-family house B built in timber frame construction was completed after only six months of construction.
On the small plot the maximal possible cubature and the existing parameters have been used in an optimal way.
The building follows line of the houses in the street and thus continues the urban edge along the link road. The front garden area next to the street is thereby supported and the roof orientation of the surrounding buildings continued.Save this picture!© Cordula De BloemeThe typical picture of a gabled roof house characteristic of the area is taken up, but is enhanced by the perforated facade and interpreted contemporarily. The roof pitches, which were determined mathematically according to the yard and setback regulations, have been implemented innovatively in the form of an asymmetrical roof in order to create maximum living space on the small plot.Save this picture!© Cordula De BloemeThe facade that faces the public space and with it the sound emissions from the road traffic contains only a small number of indented or protruded windows and is therefore more closed.

Declared as a homeless, but originally from Limerick, 26-year-old James Dillion was convicted and is serving life for murder.36-year-old Dundon and 24-year-old Killeen appeared in court last Tuesday to hear their defence argue that material relating to the disclosure of the State’s case was still outstanding.Prosecuting counsel Michael O’Higgins SC and Sean Guerin SC told the three women judges of the non-jury court that they needed additional time to furnish the defence with evidence of further recordings of conversations between Gardaí and potential witnesses who were in prison custody at the time.It will be the first time in the history of the State, a murder trial will be heard at the Special Criminal Court by an all female bench.When they were brought to the dock area of Court 11 on Tuesday, Dundon and Killeen had a brief consultation with their defence teams before proceedings began.Dundon grinned over at Steve Collins after he acknowledged two of his own family members at the other side of the court.Senior counsels Michael O’Higgins and Sean Guerin told the court that there was a manageable list of disclosure material to be furnished to the defence and that significant Garda resources were assigned to deal with the issue.Mr O’Higgins said there was no complacency on the part of the State but he did accept that there were a number of matters still outstanding.Counsel for Nathan Killeen, Giollaíosa Ó Lideadha SC, said that it was not satisfactory that matters were coming so late, adding that they felt there was no “reality in the short term to the case going on”.Ms Justice Iseult O’Malley, together with Judge Margaret Heneghan and Judge Ann Ryan said that the court appreciated the amount of work being done in relation to the trial advancing.The opening of the trial was adjourned and an earlier court order was extended for the Prison Service to disclose recordings made, between a range of agreed dates, from Garda stations to potential witnesses who were in custody at the time.Transcripts of sentencing hearings from 2011 with Gareth Keogh Collins and another man are also to be given to the defence.Mr O’Higgins said that no “controversial evidence” would be heard before the May Bank Holiday weekend.

Brian Crandall reports on housing and development for the Ithaca Voice. He can be reached at [email protected] More by Brian Crandall Brian Crandall Here’s what it’s looking like for time frames. Tuesday morning, the commute will be snowy, and a few inches of snow are likely to fall up through about noon. At that time, sleet is expected to mix into the snow, and that will probably be another inch of a snow/sleet combination. By 3-4 PM, the warm air layer will have thickened enough to turn the precipitation into rain, which with the snow on the ground and temperatures around 30 °F at the surface, meaning it will freeze to untreated roads and other untreated surfaces. Temperatures will slowly climb as we find ourselves wedged between two low pressure systems along the front, but sleet and freezing rain will persist through the evening commute and into Tuesday night, with temperatures warming to above freezing after midnight. It would not be a surprise to have just a cold rain for at least a few others Wednesday morning before sunrise.Wednesday morning will see a shift to snow, as temperatures hover around 32 °F. There will not be a warm layer to melt the inch or so of snow that falls, but the winds will pick up Wednesday afternoon as the second low passes to the northeast and its rear flank cold front passes through, with gusts up to 35 MPH. Wednesday will be cloudy, around freezing, with scattered snow showers and gusty winds. Wednesday night will see the winds calm as the cold front moves away, and temperatures will drop to the lower 20s.Keep in mind, this is a really complicated setup with two moisture-heavy lows and temperatures hovering around freezing for most of the event. It will not take much to make it a more snow-heavy event, or a more ice-heavy event. Keep an eye on the forecast and for any updates as the system evolves.Thursday will be warmer and drier, as a high pressure system over the Southeast draws up milder air. Apart from a few lingering rain or snow showers, it will be mostly cloudy and dry, with highs in the low 40s. Thursday night will be cloudy with lows in the low 30s.Friday is round two for storm systems, as a second low develops in the southern Great Plains and moves northeastward through the Ohio River Valley. Ahead of the low, its counterclockwise circulation with work with the high to funnel warmer air into the region, so highs are likely to make it into the mid 40s Friday with rain building into the region during the morning hours. Some cooler spots may start off with a freezing rains, but all areas should transition to a cold non-freezing rain by afternoon.It will rain into Friday night with lows in the mid 30s, and with a second low developing off the coast and rapidly intensifying, a rain to snow transition is expected Saturday, with early highs around 40 dropping to the teens by Saturday night as precipitation tapers off. Sunday will be quieter, mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 20s.Graphic courtesy of the NOAA Climate Prediction Center.Extended OutlookIt would be nice if the weather turned mild and fairly quiet after a rough week. It would also be wrong. The atmospheric has been locked in what’s known as a negative phase PNA (Pacific North American) pattern. This is an atmospheric teleconnection to ocean temperatures, and a negative pattern tends to be more common with La Niña events, though the current conditions are neutral. This, combined with an abundance of cold cir and lower-latitude jet stream, will allow a colder-than-normal pattern to dominate over much of the continental United States. There’s some wiggle room here in the Northeast for a more modest cold pattern depending on how the jet stream is oriented and the amplitude of ridges of warm air, but overall, the unusually cold air is expected to shift eastward into the eastern third of the country by the second half of the month. ITHACA, N.Y. — After what had been a fairly warm and quiet week for February, winter has reloaded and has Tompkins County in its crosshairs. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for what is likely be a substantial snowmaker, ice glazer, and commute-wrecker Tuesday.Monthly meteorological data at Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport. Graphic courtesy of Weather Underground.Weather RecapAfter subzero temperatures, a change of pace was welcome. And what a change of pace it was. At the airport, temperatures swung from a low of -11 °F on the morning of February 1st to a high of 62 °F on last Monday the 4th. At the Cornell Game Farm Road weather station in Dryden, the temperature swing was even greater, from -14 °F to 61 °F. It’s not something that’s easily tracked in the climatological record, but there are likely few swings more extreme than that in Ithaca’s recorded meteorological history.With the passage of a cold front on Friday, the winds kicked into high gear, with a 43 MPH gust recorded at the airport late Friday night. This weekend was cold, but fairly quiet. However, as winter weather often does, that relative calm is about to change, and you’re going to want to have a shovel and your de-icer of choice handy.Graphic courtesy of NWS Binghamton.Your Weekly WeatherIf there’s any silver lining to the forecast coming up, it’s that there’s no extreme temperatures in the forecast. That said, it will be an active weather pattern, with multiple chances for sleet, freezing rain and ice accretion during the week.At present, a large and strong area of high pressure is moving eastward out into the Atlantic; Sunday’s highs were a few degrees warmer than Saturday because the clockwise flow around the high tapped into warmer air to the southeast and advected some of that milder air into the Southern Tier. Going into tonight, there is a mid-level atmospheric disturbance passing through the region, but the air overhead is very dry. While some cloudiness and a few light snow showers are likely, it won’t be anything substantial due to the lack of moisture. Lows tonight will be in the mid 20s in urban Ithaca, low 20s in the outlying areas.Monday is a rather complex setup. A warm front to the south will serve as a conduit for areas of low pressure to traverse northward and eastward, but will battle it out with a cold, dry Canadian high pressure system to the north. For Monday, Tompkins County will be under the influence of that high, and it will be mostly cloudy with highs in the low 30s. As we head into Monday night, those lows and associated moisture and precipitation will eat away at the high’s southern edge, so they’ll slowly advance into the region going through the overnight hours. It’ll be cloudy, the snow is not likely to show up until after midnight, and it won’t be persistent until around daybreak Tuesday morning. Lows will be in the low 20s.Graphic courtesy of NWS Binghamton.Tuesday’s where things get complicated, and problematic. The weather models are, to varying degrees, forecasting a warm layer in the middle of the atmosphere. Warm air is lighter than cold air, so it tends to ride up and over cold air masses. Now keep in mind, this is coming in while precipitation is already occurring. If you have snow forming up aloft, melting partially into sleet or completely into rain as it passes through that warm middle, and then it hits the ground where temperatures are a couple degrees below freezing, allowing it to fully freeze up again – this could very quickly turn into a major ice event.

Previous Article Next Article Vauxhallemployees in Luton will be given four weeks’ paid leave this Christmas in aninnovative £3m deal to help the company cope with falling demand for motorvehicles in Europe.Employeeswill finish work on 14 December and return on 15 January under Vauxhall’sflexible working agreement. One of the weeks is the usual Christmas break, theother three have been added to cope with falling demand. The scheme will costthe company about £1m a week for its 3,000 staff but the hours will be recoupednext year, if demand rises, with the introduction of an extra shift. Theflexible working deal was struck with the T&G and the AmalgamatedEngineering and Electrical Union four years ago, but has seldom been used. Itis similar to schemes in Germany and in the US, the home of Vauxhall’s parentcompany General Motors.Vauxhall’sdirector of personnel Bruce Warman said, “We are the first company in the UK tohave this system that enables us to bank employees’ hours and draw them downlater. “Theworkforce is more than happy with the deal. It is a good pattern and it works.”In thepast, when demand slumped car workers were laid off. But nowadays manufacturersare keen to retain their workforce, which tends to be much better trained,particularly when, as now, there is almost full employment. “We like to hold onto our good people,” said Warman. The T&Gwelcomed the move by Vauxhall to annualised hours and flexible working, whichthe union’s spokesman said should be viewed within a European context ofovercapacity and greater employee flexibility.By KathyWatson Break allows Vauxhall to ‘bank’ hours for the futureOn 5 Dec 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
This study follows the psychological profile of a group of Antarctic explorers on a remote base in British Antarctica. Each month for 1 year the 60-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) was administered to the 12-man complement and the results compared to those of a control group. Three men resigned and left, 4 months later, at the end of winter. Their scoring showed marked differences from the others, including the highest scores in the severe depression factor scale. The GHQ was accepted by the men despite the intrusive threat it offered in such a small community; there was also a seasonal variation in scoring, with higher scores in the winter, and no evidence of long-term psychological sequelae in those who stayed.
The change highlights the flexibility of Wärtsilä’s lifecycle support and readiness to customise solutions based on customer needs Image: Wärtsilä extends long-term service agreement with EDL in Australia. Photo: Courtesy of Wärtsilä. The technology group Wärtsilä has signed an extended renewal agreement to its service agreement with Energy Developments Ltd (EDL) of Australia. The agreement covers the 53 MW baseload gas engine power plant at the McArthur River zinc mine in Northern Territory, Australia. The original ten-year service agreement was signed in 2013. However, after only six years this has been extended for a further ten years, and the maintenance approach has been changed from pre-planned, scheduled maintenance periods to condition-based and predictive maintenance with advisory contract. The agreement renewal was signed in Q3, 2019.The change in the scope of the agreement, from guaranteeing the plant’s availability based on pre-planned scheduled maintenance, to the condition-based and predictive maintenance approach came in response to the customer’s developing needs. The change highlights the flexibility of Wärtsilä’s lifecycle support and readiness to customise solutions based on customer needs.“Wärtsilä has given us excellent support and we are pleased to extend the agreement for a further ten years. EDL is committed to delivering on our customer’s expectations of reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable energy. Wärtsilä’s condition-based and predictive maintenance approach should help us to achieve this. We expect that the renewed and extended agreement will help us increase efficiencies, which in turn benefits our customer with greater reliability and reduced downtime,” said EDL General Manager, Remote Energy, Geoff Hobley.“We want to bring genuine value to our customers. By working closely with EDL and listening to their needs, we revisited the service agreement and were able to design a Guaranteed Asset Performance agreement which together with Wärtsilä’s condition-based and predictive maintenance approach is the best solution for them,” commented Edwin van Waas, General Manager, Service Agreements and Projects, Wärtsilä Energy Business.Wärtsilä’s capabilities in providing remote monitoring support from Wärtsilä Expertise Centres to power plant installations result in lower operating costs and greater overall plant efficiency, and represent a prime example of how the latest digital technologies are transforming the energy sector into a new era of flexibility and high efficiency.EDL manages a portfolio of power plants in Australia, North America and Europe.

Indianapolis – The investigation that began in late August of 2016 alleging the filing of fraudulent voter application information has expanded from the original involved counties of Hendricks and Marion to also include the counties of Allen, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Lake and Madison.As part of the expanded investigation, state police detectives obtained a search warrant for the business offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project, located at 2425 North Meridian Street, Suite A, in downtown Indianapolis. The search warrant was served mid-morning of Tuesday, October 4th. The affidavit and search warrant are sealed for a period of 30 days from the time the warrant was granted, which was October 3, 2016.An investigation of this nature is complex, time consuming and is expected to continue for several more weeks or months.Important points related to this ongoing investigation include:In accordance with state law, all voter registration applications received by Indiana voter registration offices are processed according to established policiesA representative sample of voter registration applications received by county voter registration offices suspected of being fraudulent have been COPIED and provided to state police detectives. In all cases the ORIGINAL applications are maintained by the appropriate voter registration officeThe expanded number of counties involved leads investigators to believe the total of potentially fraudulent records may be in the hundreds, thus creating a potential to disenfranchise many votersThe possible fraudulent or false information is a combination of made up names and made up addresses, real names with made up or incorrect addresses and false dates of births with real names as well as combinations of all these examples.Victims of the activities by some agents of the Indiana Voter Registration Project may not discover they have been disenfranchised from voting until they go to vote and realize their voting information has been altered. Such action may result in the citizen having to cast a provisional ballot.There are simple steps people can take now, before the election, to protect their right to vote by ensuring they are properly registered. Visit this site and follow the directions to confirm you are properly registered: https://indianavoters.in.govIf after checking this source, a citizen discovers inaccurate information that indicates they could be a victim, they should contact their local voter registration office and the 24 hour Indiana State Police Voter Registration Application Fraud tip line of 888-603-3147.The investigation continues and no further information is available at this time.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
