The house consists of five prefabricated custom modules, each approximately fifty feet long, that are assembled before being delivered to the site. The concept allowed for indoor construction under optimal working conditions. The modular design is unique, created according to precise plans by the architect. The insulation, windows, and flooring were all assembled before shipping. Transporting the giant modules proved to be quite a challenge.Save this picture!© David BoyerSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© David BoyerThe process included preparation, coordination, and navigating through country roads with ninety degree turns in inclement weather. Construction began in late summer before the demolition of the existing house. This ensured a faster construction so that the family would not lose more than one season enjoying the country.Save this picture!© David BoyerSave this picture!Entry level floor planSave this picture!© David BoyerLow environmental footprint. Conceptualized with the vision of creating an extremely low environmental footprint, the house was built using sustainable and local materials. The large windows capture the beauty of nature in all its glory and flood the inside with light. The direct sunshine helps in reducing both heating and lighting costs. The natural colored outdoor facade blends easily into the woodland decor and the opaque black accents add an artistic flair. The wood used indoors is warm and welcoming. The architect is in the process of applying for a LEED Gold certification for his home.Save this picture!© David BoyerA place adapted to all. The house interior was designed so that each member of the family has their own personal space. The ground floor’s open concept has a large kitchen and dining area where everyone enjoys cooking and eating delicious meals together, a beautiful, cozy living room space, and a three-season screened-in porch surrounded by a lake and woods. The ground floor also has an atelier for painting and carpentry. The lowered lakeside deck was designed as to not disturb the view of the magnificent scenery.Save this picture!© David BoyerProject gallerySee allShow lessInfinity Bench / Azócar Catrón ArquitectosSelected ProjectsGran Fierro Argentinian Restaurant / FormafatalSelected Projects Share Projet Paysage Photographs Photographs: David Boyer Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/951603/prefabricated-country-home-figurr-architects-colective Clipboard Year: “COPY” “COPY” Houses Prefabricated Country Home / Figurr Architects Colective CopyAbout this officeFigurr Architects CollectiveOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookIvry-sur-le-LacCanadaPublished on November 19, 2020Cite: “Prefabricated Country Home / Figurr Architects Colective” 19 Nov 2020.

FIFA Appoints Pinnick into Organising Committee for Competitions

first_imgWorld football-governing body, FIFA, has named the President of Nigeria Football Federation, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick, into one of its most important committees – the Organising Committee for Competitions.Hitherto, the world body had different committees for organisation of its several competitions, including the FIFA World Cup, FIFA Confederations Cup, FIFA Women’s World Cup, FIFA U20 World Cup, FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup, FIFA U17 World Cup, FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup. Pinnick was a member of the Organising Committee for the FIFA U20 World Cup.However, at its 66th Congress in Mexico City on 12th – 13th May 2016, and in accordance with the revised FIFA Statutes that came into force on 27th April 2016, the model of the standing committees was reviewed, cutting the number from 26 to 9.The new model has only the following committees: Governance, Finance, Development, Member Associations, Referees, Players’ Status, Football Stakeholders, Medical, Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions. Pinnick’s letter of appointment, dated 18th January 2017 and signed by Fatma Samoura, the Secretary General, read inter alia: “We are very pleased to inform you that you have been appointed member of the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions. We wish you our sincere congratulations on this appointment.“The FIFA administration is at your disposal through the following Administration Officer, who will be in contact with you regarding the upcoming meetings and any further aspects relating to your office as member of this committee: Colin Smith, Chief Competitions Officer.“We wish you great success and enjoyment in this role at FIFA and look forward to welcoming you soon to Zurich.”The Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions is headed by Aleksander Ceferin, President of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). The tenure of members is for 2017-2021.In line with the new FIFA reforms, each proposed member of any of the committees was made to go through a comprehensive integrity check conducted by several organisations of global relevance and stature.Pinnick’s appointment, and in particular the thorough and painstaking checks that he passed with full marks, is a big thumbs –up for Nigerian Football, and puts out the light on the unsavoury innuendoes and deliberate mischief of a few individuals intent on putting the country’s game under a cloud.As a member of the CAF Organising Committee for the Africa Cup of Nations, Pinnick is presently at the 31stAfrica Cup finals ongoing in Gabon, and will be match commissioner for Saturday’s potentially –explosive West African derby between Mali and Ghana.The new member of the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions, who swivelled through the ranks of football administration (from board member to second vice chairman, first vice chairman and chairman of Delta State Football Association, to Executive Chairman of Delta State Sports Commission before his election as President of Nigeria Football Federation in September 2014), is also a candidate for election into the Executive Committee of Confederation of African Football.The CAF elections will take place at the 39th Ordinary General Assembly of the organisation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on 16th March.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Elderly man kills wife then himself due to concerns about medical bills

first_imgAuthorities in Washington are reporting that an elderly man shot his wife and then himself committed over concerns that they could not afford their healthcare bills.The incident was reported in Ferndale on Wednesday around 8:30 am.According to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office, they received a called from the 77-year-old man saying “I am going to shoot myself.” He then told the operator that there will be a note with instructions and that his body and his wife’s body would be “in the front bedroom.”When authorities arrived to the home at 6500 bock of Timmeran Lane they immediately set up a perimeter and had a crisis negotiator attempt to get in touch with someone inside the home. After trying for an hour, the team sent a robotic camera up to the home and found that both the man and his wife were deceased.Investigators found several notes in the home that listed several of the wife’s ailments and the couples concerns about not having enough money to pay for treatment. Another note listed a next-of-kin.Sheriff Bill Elfo of the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office spoke about the incident saying:“It is very tragic that one of our senior citizens would find himself in such desperate circumstances where he felt murder and suicide were the only option.”Two dogs were also found in the home. They have since been turned over to the Humane Society.last_img read more

Rossland’s Cain, Geisheimer add 2011 Cyswogn’Fun long course titles to trophy case Sunday in Nelson

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsIt was a Golden performance by a pair of Golden City athletes at the 2011 Cyswogn’ Fun Triathlon Sunday at Lakeside Park.Dallas Cain of Rossland, looking like a white knight in his white spandex suit, breezed over the Cyswogn’Fun course in a time of two hours, three minutes and four seconds to nip Chad Reid of Lethbridge for the men’s overall title.Cain gained some revenge on the Albertan after Reid defeated the Rosslander in 2010.“It was awesome . . . it’s a really good course,” Cain said minutes after crossing the finish line at the main entrance to Lakeside Park.Brad Kohlsmith of Calgary was third approximately 10 minutes behind Cain.Top Nelsonite was Matt Nuttal finishing fifth at 23:19:16. Former Nelsonite Greg Welwood, now living in Burnaby, was sixth at 2:21.16.Jamie Frederick and Daniel Wordsworth, both from the Heritage City, finished seventh and eighth, respectively.
Another former Nelsonite now living in Kelowna, Don Debienne, tops in the 50-59 category, was tenth.Meanwhile, Geisheimer had a great day on the Nelson course cruising to the women’s title in a time of 2:16.07.The Golden City triathlete finished more than eight minutes in front of Kelowna’s Kari Bailey. “I’m really happy,” Geisheimer told The Nelson Daily after the race.“This is the third year I’ve done this race and this year they changed the course and actually they changed it in my favour because I’m a swimmer and they made the course 1500 meters so that was good for me.”Jeannette Elmore of Kelowna was third behind Geisheimer at 2:28.30 followed in fourth by Megan Molnar of Golden and Robin Watt-Sutherland of Salmon Arm in fifth at 2:35.37.Top Nelsonite female was Angie Ford in seventh at 2:39.16.Cyswogn’Fun organizers actually made two changes to the 2011 race.The first was extending the swim stage to 1500 meters from previous years.It’s obvious this change played right into Geisheimer’s hand.“I was surprised to be second person out of the water,” Geisheimer explained after running up the Lakeside beach from chilly Kootenay Lake just over a minute behind Reid.“Usually there’s three of four men around here that can swim ahead of me but I’ve been doing a lot of open water swimming this year so I think that helped.”The second change made by organizers extended the ride along the North Shore Highway 3A to Kokanee Park. In previous years racers cycled to Six Mile and back twice to get in the race distance.This change, dropping the distance to 39 kilometers was music to Cain’s ears.“It was really fun,” said the 30-ish triathlete. “It was a way better bike this year . . . just flat out and back. No coming back through the loops so that made it a lot better.”Cain, sixth out of the water, burned up the North Shore road to finish first overall in the cycle.The Ironman veteran continued to set the pace on the run finishing with the best time to capture his third Cyswogn’Fun title in five attempts.“(My wife and I) had a baby this year so I’ve put training on the back shelf and train when I can,” said Cain, itching to get back onto the course at the Subaru Ironman Canada in Penticton later this month.“But I’ve feeling really good. I won Sylvain Lake and finished second at Osoyoos.”“Maybe less training is the answer,” he added.The total distance for Nelson Cyswogn’Fun is 1500 meter swim, 39 kilometer cycle and 10 km run across the Big Orange Bridge along Johnstone Road and back.“I really like the bike because we only had to cross traffic once,” said Geisheimer, cooking with the men most of the race. “And organizers did a fantastic job of stopping vehicles. So I was really happy with my ride considering I’ve been training 90 per cent mountain bike and only 10 per cent road.”After jumping off the bike Geisheimer did not look out of place on the grueling run.“The run is always hard but I’ve done this race before so I kind of know what to expect and that’s definitely helpful,” said Geisheimer, who won the women’s long course race in 2007 and 2010.While Cain is off to the Penticton Ironman, Geisheimer is turning her focus to off-road triathlons. Next up for the Rosslander is an off-road race in two weeks in Canmore, Alta.NOTES: Organizers were quick to respond to a pair of swimmers in trouble during the first stage of the long course Sunday morning. A female swimmer was pulled from the 13 C waters of Kootenay Lake complaining of hypothermia and taken to Kootenay Lake Hospital. . . . Organizers said entries were down, some saying by at least 100, from past years. The reason is economics. . . . Mother Nature cooperated with great weather for the race. It was great news for the organizing team after last year’s less than great weather. The only concern heading into the race was the chilly waters of Kootenay Lake which was colder than normal due to the late [email protected]last_img read more

Potrelated policing border enforcement efforts to get 274M from Ottawa

first_imgOTTAWA – The Trudeau government has earmarked just over $274 million to support policing and border efforts associated with the plan to legalize recreational marijuana use.The government said Friday it is committing $161 million of the money to train frontline officers in how to recognize the signs and symptoms of drug-impaired driving, provide access to drug screening devices and educate the public.Some of these funds will help develop policy, bolster research and raise awareness about the dangers of drug-impaired driving.Of the $161 million, provinces and territories would be able to access up to $81 million over the next five years. Public Safety Canada is working with provincial counterparts on gauging policing needs to determine how the federal funding will be distributed.The government is devoting $113.5 million over five years to Public Safety, the RCMP and the Canada Border Services Agency to ensure organized crime does not infiltrate the legalized system and keep pot from crossing borders.“I am confident that together we will make our roads and communities safer,” Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said in a statement.The money will help with needed training and creation of dedicated cannabis enforcement teams, said deputy chief Mike Serr of the Abbotsford, B.C., police.“So this is, for us, very good news,” said Serr, chair of the drug advisory committee of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police.Serr said he still has questions about ongoing funding and whether more money will be needed down the road.The Liberals are moving to legalize recreational marijuana use by next July, saying it will help keep the drug out of the hands of young people while denying profits to criminal organizations.The money announced Friday will not start to flow until legislation to usher in the regime for legal marijuana receives royal assent.“This a welcome and overdue first step from the government,” said Ian Jack, a spokesman for the Canadian Automobile Association.“It’s far too early to tell if this will be enough money, in particular for public education — which to us at the CAA is one of the keys on this file.”Many young people think they are as good or better drivers while high as when not, Jack said.“That’s simply not true, and these are the kinds of myths that we need to disabuse people of before marijuana becomes legally available.”Under proposed legislation, police would be able to demand a saliva sample from a driver if they reasonably suspected the person had drugs in their body.Should the saliva test lead police to believe an offence has been committed, they could order an examination by an evaluating officer or the taking of a blood sample.Portable screening devices can detect the recent presence of several drugs, including THC — the active ingredient in cannabis — cocaine, methamphetamines, opioids, benzodiazepines and amphetamines.Finance Canada will consult shortly on a proposed new taxation regime for marijuana, the government said Friday.The RCMP said as recently as December that it’s too early to know how pot legalization will affect organized criminal involvement in the illicit marijuana market.Government officials are collecting data — everything from the street price of pot to how often people light up — to arm themselves in the fight against organized crime’s presence in the trade.— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitterlast_img read more

Senate backs 854B bill to fund health education military

first_imgWASHINGTON – The Senate approved an $854 billion measure Thursday that funds much of the government, including $675 billion for the Defence Department.The bill combines military spending with disbursements for Health and Human Services, Education, Labor and other agencies.The bill was approved, 85-7, and now heads to the House.With the vote, the Senate has passed nine of the 12 mandatory spending bills for the budget year that begins Oct. 1. That’s a marked departure from recent years, when individual spending measures were routinely ignored in favour of giant spending packages that fund the entire government.The Senate had not passed a labour/health spending bill in more than a decade.The bill boosts military pay by 2.6 per cent and the National Institutes of Health by 5 per cent.Republicans cited defence spending in urging support for the measure, which accounts for about two-thirds of federal spending for the 2019 budget year. The 2.6 per cent military pay raise is the largest in nearly a decade.The 5 per cent boost for NIH is the fourth straight significant increase for the biomedical research agency. The measure would hike spending for Alzheimer’s research to more than $2.3 billion, essentially quadrupling spending levels from four years ago on a disease that requires hundreds of billions of dollars for dementia-related care.Republican Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee on labour and health, said that if the United States does not find a solution to the disease by 2050, “we will be spending about twice today’s defence budget on Alzheimer’s care.”The bill also would provide a $145 million increase for treatment of opioid addiction, bringing spending to $3.7 billion to confront what lawmakers called an epidemic of abuse.It would also boost spending for the Head Start preschool program and increase maximum Pell Grants for college education.Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said the vote “shows what the Senate can do working together. We all know it’s not easy, but it works.”Some conservatives criticized Republicans for going along with Democratic demands for increases in non-defence spending that match the increase in defence spending. The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think-tank , said the bill “continues to fund wasteful and ineffective programs that should be curtailed or eliminated entirely” and omits several policy riders important to conservatives.Senate leaders from both parties have agreed to avoid attaching so-called poison pill proposals to spending legislation to ensure passage.The Senate rejected an amendment sponsored by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul to block taxpayer dollars from going to Planned Parenthood and other groups that perform abortions. Paul said the amendment offered Republicans who “profess pro-life values” a chance “to turn our words into action, stand up for the sanctity of life and speak out for the most innocent among us that have no voice.”Only 45 senators voted in favour of the proposal.Senate leaders also blocked an amendment by Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., that would have allowed the Senate to intervene in a Texas lawsuit that could upend health-care protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions. The Trump administration has said it will no longer defend key parts of the Obama-era Affordable Care Act in court.“What’s happening today in the Senate is disgusting,” Manchin said after the amendment was blocked. He said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “chose to play politics with the health care of millions of Americans,” including about 1.8 million people with pre-existing conditions in McConnell’s home state of Kentucky.“This is not a Democratic or Republican issue, this is life or death to many,” Manchin said.Manchin’s election opponent, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey, has joined states challenging the health care law.The House has approved a $675 billion spending bill for the Defence Department, but has not voted on a spending measure for labour, health and education. Senators from both parties have said they want to keep the two measures attached.__Associated Press writer Kevin Freking contributed to this story.last_img read more
