Orange Audubon plans special event May 1 to celebrate Apopka Wildlife…

first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Over 370 species of birds have been sighted over the years, more than any site in Florida including the EvergladesFrom Orange Audubon SocietyCelebrating six years since the St. Johns River Water Management District opened the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive to the public, Orange Audubon Society will offer visitors on May 1 a chance to learn how to better identify birds seen along the drive and how to safely spot alligators, bobcats, otters and other wildlife.Nearly 150,000 visitors a year enjoy exploring the drive. To commemorate the drive’s sixth anniversary, volunteers will be stationed at the pavilion near the historic pumphouse, two miles from the entrance, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help with bird identification and offer wildlife viewing tips.“We’re proud of the drive’s success and the incredible educational opportunity it offers residents and visitors,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “Still, it’s important to understand that the drive is just one of the many benefits of the numerous restoration projects under way to improve Lake Apopka’s water quality and natural systems.”Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, photo from SJRWMD videoOnce part of Lake Apopka, the 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore was diked off and drained and put into agricultural production in the 1940s. The farms were acquired by the District between 1996 and 2001 with the goal of reducing nutrient-rich discharges to the lake. In addition to protecting water quality, these lands provide water storage and critical wetland functions. The popular 11-mile one-way drive was carefully designed to traverse existing farm levees to provide optimal wildlife viewing opportunities of both the recovering wetlands and lake.The drive is open on days that District staff and contractors are not carrying out Lake Apopka restoration work — Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and most federal holidays. Any day of the week visitors may hike or bicycle the 18-mile Lake Apopka Loop Trail. Details for visitors, including an audio tour, can be found on the District’s website at www.sjrwmd.com/lands/recreation/lake-apopka.Since July 2020, Orange Audubon Ambassadors have been at the welcome shelter near the entrance gate each Saturday and Sunday to provide maps and tips for first-time visitors.Over 370 species of birds have been sighted over the years, more than any site in Florida including the Everglades. The Lake Apopka North Shore has been designated an American Bird Conservancy Globally Important Bird Area, a National Audubon Society State Important Bird Area, an Audubon Florida Special Place, and is on the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. In the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s online program in which birders record their sightings, the Lake Apopka North Shore is now the top eBird hotspot in Florida.Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, photo from SJRWMD videoFacebook pages and groups, the District’s self-guided audio tour, informative brochures developed by the District and Friends of Lake Apopka, and Orange Audubon Society’s educational kiosks with links to web information all help visitors to identify the wildlife and understand the lake restoration process.Like all District properties, the Lake Apopka North Shore, including the wildlife drive, is free to visit. However, the District often receives questions from individuals interested in contributing directly to the drive’s upkeep. The District welcomes online donations to support sanitation, recreational maintenance, security, and visitor brochures and maps.Any weekend throughout the year, you can see many out-of-state plates on the Wildlife Drive, and these people buy gas and supplies, eat in restaurants, and stay locally, which brings in ecotourism dollars.For the May 1 event, Orange Audubon encourages visitors to stop by its station near the pumphouse with questions. For additional information, contact Orange Audubon at 407-637-2525.If you go:The Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive is open on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays. The drive is closed on other days due to ongoing restoration work.The entrance gate opens at 7 a.m. and closes at 3 p.m. to allow visitors time to complete the drive and exit the property by 5 p.m.The one-way drive begins at 2850 Lust Road in Apopka and exits onto Jones Avenue in Zellwood.Due to its popularity, 10 mph speed limit and limited pullover opportunities, visitors are recommended to allow over two hours to travel the 11 miles.There are limited places to park and walk.See www.sjrwmd.com/lands/recreation/lake-apopka for maps and more information and https://www.facebook.com/pg/lakeapopkawildlifedrive for photos.Orange Audubon Society (OAS) is a 55-year old chapter of Florida and National Audubon Societies with 2000+ member households in Central Florida, dedicated to promote public understanding of, and an interest in, wildlife and the environment that supports it. For OAS’ Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive Ambassador Program and other volunteer efforts, the St. Johns River Water Management District recently awarded OAS the Bob Owens Award for Volunteer Service.

CJ van der Linde headbutt on Sam Cordingly

first_imgMonday Aug 25, 2008 CJ van der Linde headbutt on Sam Cordingly Springbok tighthead prop CJ van der Linde has been cited for a head butt following Australia’s 27-15 victory over South Africa in Durban on Saturday. The result of the hearing is due to be announced later today.Flying into a ruck head first, Wallaby scrumhalf Sam Cordingly received a bullet-like head square in the face, and was probably lucky to have not been badly injured.Watching it again, it’s difficult to comprehend exactly what Van der Linde’s intentions were, as his shoulder, arms, and the rest of his body were nowhere near making contact with his target. Clearing out a player aggressively is one thing, leading with your head is another. He should know better.Van der Linde was lucky to escape being sent off so early in the match, as the incident happened right in front of referee Lyndon Bray, who was probably too shocked to fully comprehend what he just saw. Bray did give a penalty though, which resulted in an easy three points for the visitors.Utter stupidity I’m afraid, and Van der Linde now faces a disciplinary hearing and is sure to be on the sidelines for a good few weeks, ruling out the rest of his Tri Nations, compounding the Springbok’s misery after their poor showing on the weekend.Australian loose forward, and Man of the Match, Rocky Elsom was also cited after being penalised four minutes into the second half when he pulled Springbok captain Victor Matfield down in a line-out.It looked fairly innocuous, but Matfield came down awkwardly and in a bizarre repeat of the John Smit/Brad Thorn incident, has twinged his groin, possibly ruling him out of next weekend’s Ellis Park clash.We’ll await the disciplinary hearing rulings, and if Elsom does actually get suspended, which I doubt will happen, then we’ll get the video up for you to see anyway.As for CJ, expect nothing less than a two week suspension for his moment of madness.————— UPDATE: Van der Lindehas received a one month suspension.He denied targeting the head of Cordingly., but did acknowledge that it was an illegal and dangerous attempt to clear out. Rocky Elsomhas been handed a one week banfor his illegal tackling of Matfield in the lineout. After a video review, the offence was viewed as dangerous, resulting in the suspension. PLEASE NOTE: This video has been removed by Mediazone, who own the rights to the footage and no longer allow us to use it.

Bourgoin’s Alex Tulou smashes Stade Francais’ Dimitri Szarzewski

first_imgSunday Aug 15, 2010 Bourgoin’s Alex Tulou smashes Stade Francais’ Dimitri Szarzewski Alex Tulou is a name probably unknown to most, but from what I’ve read and what can be seen in this clip, we’ll no doubt be seeing more of the big Bourgoin loose forward in the not too distant future.This clip is a pretty short one, but it needs to be seen as the impact of the hit on French hooker Dimitri Szarzewski is absolutely massive. Tulou was playing in his first Top 14 game for his new club, having only be signed this year.He’s played for Wellington, Taranaki, and the Hurricanes in New Zealand and has been an impressive junior grade player. He’s still only 23 and weighs well over 110kg’s, while he can get around the park at quite some speed and impact, as you’ll see here in Bourgoin’s game against Stade Francais.Bourgoin lost the game heavily though, going down 43-12 to a far more powerful side. Former Leinster coach Michael Cheika got his reign underway in style with the convincing win. Hooker Szarzewski, despite taking this massive knock, scored a try, as did the newly mohawked centre Mathieu Bastareaud.

Nike unveil England’s new home and and away kits for 2011/2012

first_imgMonday Aug 1, 2011 Nike unveil England’s new home and and away kits for 2011/2012 Earlier today was the launch of Nike’s new England home and away playing kits, including the controversial black jersey that has caused such a stir. Here’s a quick video and more information about both jerseys.When it was announced a few weeks back that England were close to unveiling a new away strip that was to be all black, for the World Cup in New Zealand, there were mixed reactions, with much negativity coming from certain parts of the world.New Zealand’s Prime Minister even commented on the concept, famously saying they’re a bunch of ‘Wannabes’, and that ‘There’s only one team that wears black with pride, and that’s the All Blacks.’The new away jersey is pitch black, with the only colour being that of the red rose, and the white of the sponsors’ logos. The home kit on the other hand is more traditional, but for the first time, is 100% white, offering an amazing contrast between the two.Featuring all sorts of new technology, from the jerseys to the socks, these kits are aimed to help improve England’s performance, as well as give them a bold new look that will resonate well with their fans and players.The alternate kit will be worn for the first time when England play Wales this coming weekend (August 6) at Twickenham, with the white kit worn the following week against Wales again, that time in Cardiff.ADVERTISEMENT What are your thoughts on the way they look and the controversy surrounding the away kit?

Jacques Potgieter fined $20,000 for homophobic comments against the Brumbies

first_imgMonday Mar 23, 2015 Jacques Potgieter fined $20,000 for homophobic comments against the Brumbies NSW Waratahs forward Jacques Potgieter has been fined $20,000 (with $10,000 suspended) after an investigation into alleged homophobic slurs resulted in the former Bulls player being found guilty of the offence against the Brumbies. Brumbies flanker David Pocock first approach referee Craig Joubert to bring attention to it on Sunday, but at the time nothing was done as even Pocock himself didn’t know who said what.Potgieter later admitted to making comments contrary to the Australian Rugby Union’s Inclusion Policy. He expressed remorse over the incident, and apologised for any harm caused by his remarks.“I’m very sorry for any offence caused by what I said on the field during a heated encounter. It was an offhand remark made without thought for the hurt it could cause to those around me,” he said.As well as the fine, he will be required to undergo additional educational and awareness training.  ARU CEO Bill Pulver said: “We take the issue of homophobia in sport seriously and want to provide a positive environment for everyone involved in Rugby. Comments of this nature cannot be tolerated.”The incident follows the endorsement of an ARU Inclusion Policy in August 2014, which is designed to stamp out all forms of discrimination and homophobia in Rugby. Potgieter’s penalty relates to a breach of the ARU Code of Conduct, which prohibits homophobic or racist comments.Waratahs Rugby CEO Greg Harris said the incident was unfortunate, given the efforts of the sport to be an inclusive environment.“Jacques made an error in judgement, despite having completed the ARU’s Integrity Training, which includes the Member Protection Policy around Inclusion and Racism,” Harris said.“Our players have been educated around the importance of respect and integrity on the field, and this incident was directly in conflict to these values.“There is no place for homophobia or any form of discrimination in our game and we have endeavoured as a club to embody these values on and off the field. We pride ourselves on a strong culture, and this incident is by no means definitive of our collective identity as a football club.”credit: foxsports ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Brumbies , See it to Believe it Related Articles 311 WEEKS AGO Henry Speight banned for five weeks for dangerous… 312 WEEKS AGO A fascinating look, and listen, at Christian… 318 WEEKS AGO David Pocock dislocates his finger while… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Traditional but Modern “Traditional but modern!” That was the requirement of the clients, in their thirties, who worked as authors and publishers. For a long time, successful translation of tradition expressed in a modern vocabulary has been a goal of design for Korean architects presently. That has been a very complex puzzle and a difficult problem to solve. However, it’s essential to study the heritage of tradition, since tradition could be the motive of creation.

The circulation of ancient Korea continues infinitely in space, overlaps and penetrates each other asymmetrically, and finally, produces several picturesque frames by surrounding nature and building.

It is necessary to contact with nature which brings the urban house rich changes and variation during its life time(i.e., witnessing the blossoming and decaying of flowers). “Madang”(open court yard) was the very “nature” in ancient Korea. Save this picture!© Yongkwan KimSpatial Korean traits Eight places of “madang” located in different levels were planned to produce attractive and interesting drama of spaces. All the major spaces of this house were designed to have a direct relationship to “madang”. Entrance  court, basement courts Ⅰ&Ⅱ, jungja(pavilion), service court, inner court, and upper court Ⅰ&Ⅱ were all the “madangs” at different levels that linked each other with both horizontal and vertical circulation. There are interesting changes, variety, through the circulation between the “madang”. Save this picture!second floor & roof planIt is a very small site to have exterior spaces of desirable size by common layout of rooms at ground level. To have as wide an area of “madang” as possible, only a living room and a dining room are placed on he ground level; the others are either below ground or above ground. Moreover, the bed-zone-mass of the upper floor was built with a piloti structure; therefore, the space below can be used as “madang”, too. This so called “RU” type program brings the house several merits of architectural condition. First of all, it gives the inner court a comfortable atmosphere because of the surrounding “madangs” which play important roles. Secondly, it creates another “madang”, which was a part of the inner court, covered with a roof. Last, without any fence ( a solid fence cannot be built in this area according to the regional building code), it separates the house from public road, and, at the same time, it solves the problem of relationship between the “privacy” inside and the neighborhood outside. “Madang” is a buffer zone between the house and he public road. It is also the place to contact with the neighborhood.

Algarrobos House / José María Sáez + Daniel Moreno Flores

first_imgArchDaily Architects: José María Sáez, Daniel Moreno Flores Area Area of this architecture project CopyText description provided by the architects. Eight identical steel members, 18 meters long, placed along the x y z axis, confine the space for the house and at the same time open it as they project in different directions. They are abstract beams that are oriented looking for their relationship with the surroundings.Save this picture!© Sebastian CrespoThis structure grants a necessary intermediation between landscape and individual: in its long dimension it generates the large cantilevers towards the ravine or the masts that mark the presence of the house, in its short dimension two beams are equivalent to one usable height.Save this picture!© Raed Gindeya MuñozSupported by the steel structure, a subsystem of wooden members completes the spatial definition, diluting by repetition and consistency its condition of enclosure. Sequences of equal beams allow the floors and roofs to be sustained or suspended.Save this picture!© Raed Gindeya MuñozGlass planes protect the wood and complete the enclosure system. These planes, in many cases movable, reinforce the relationship with the exterior, be it by transparency or by reflection. The use of reflecting pools on the metal roofs insists on the strategy of mirroring the surroundings, diluting in part the presence of the architecture.Save this picture!© Sebastian CrespoThe connection of the user with the place is what generates the project, we seek to intensify the user’s connection with reality (place, material, activity) through a basic formal and construction system that at the same time reveals the origin of our thought process.SystemEnvironment, function, user are the starting points that drive the design. Form and construction work out a concrete solution. When formal and material decisions in the design process become interrelated operations, we obtain a specific solution which is at the same time coherent and viable, abstract and real. More than an object we generate a system that is determined by a limited number of elements and rules of conjunction. By decanting elements through simplification and systematization and simultaneously enhancing their ability to generate relationships, we seek an architecture that is universal, one that intensifies our relationship with a starting point in reality.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jose Maria Saez & Daniel MorenoProject gallerySee allShow lessCañada House / GrupoMMSelected ProjectsEl Pinar / Roldán + BerenguéSelected Projects Share Projects Year:  Ecuador Houses Algarrobos House / José María Sáez + Daniel Moreno FloresSave this projectSaveAlgarrobos House / José María Sáez + Daniel Moreno FloresSave this picture!© Sebastian CrespoHouses•Puembo, Ecuador “COPY” 2011 Algarrobos House / José María Sáez + Daniel Moreno Flores Area:  833 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/287221/algarrobos-house-jose-maria-saez-daniel-moreno-flores Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/287221/algarrobos-house-jose-maria-saez-daniel-moreno-flores Clipboard + 39 Share CopyAbout this officeJose María SaezOfficeFollowDaniel Moreno FloresOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJosé María SáezDaniel Moreno FloresPuemboEcuadorPublished on October 31, 2012Cite: “Algarrobos House / José María Sáez + Daniel Moreno Flores” 31 Oct 2012.

Single-family house in Groharjevo / 3biro

first_img Area:  33 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Slovenia ArchDaily Projects Manufacturers: EsalSave this picture!© Miran KambičRecommended ProductsCeramicsGrespaniaWall Tiles – Wabi SabiEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornCeramicsTerrealTerracotta Baguettes in Vork CenterEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreText description provided by the architects. The clients were a usual young family, a couple with small children. They bought the plot in package with standard house plans with a building permit. They came to our office if we could move some windows for them…however we introduced them our vision of their house and of course they were fascinated since it was tailored to them.Save this picture!Section 01The 3 floors are layers of different use: the top floor is most private with sleeping units, in the middle on the groundfloor is a big open living area and kitchen, and below is the lowest floor where working and living is combined – the client is a engineer and has his office and showroom here. When the kids come from school they occupy this area, over the large overhang they can play outside no matter the weather.Save this picture!© Miran KambičBased on the specifics of the given site – its sloping terrain and the dense settlement surroundings, and the desire for as much outside area as possible our biggest challenge was how to make the building with the smallest footprint and leaving the most of the plot green, open. With two overhangs the result is 180m2 house with a 33m2 footprint.Save this picture!© Miran KambičIt seems that the house only slightly touches the sloping terrain. Two covered outside areas are created. One as an extension of the basement, protected from the street and oriented towards nature. The other on street level, as a covered entrance and parking area. The vertical diversity of the object continues on the inside – the living room rises in double height, with large windows on both sides.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe next challenge was to combine the form with the structural material – this was accomplished by working with top wood engineering experts with contemporary wood high-tech knowledge. The building construction is made of reinforced concrete in the basement and a combination of timber frames and cross-laminated timber above.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe decision to use wood as the structural material was because of the speed and cleanliness of construction as well as sustainable reasons – Slovenia is rich with woods and living in a wooden house is pleasant. The north and south facades have large windows towards beautiful views. They are clad with wood and speak about the structural material of the house. Facades on the east and west are as closed as possible, the material (corrugated fibre-cement sheets) is the same as the roof and it protects from the neighboring houses.Save this picture!© Miran KambičAnd last but not least, such architecturally and structurally outstanding design requires consistant colaboration with the conductor and the building constructor, from beginning to the end.Project gallerySee allShow lessDesigning Invisible Architecture: Bird Hides by BiotopeArticlesTicollage City / Costa Rica Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2014Architecture News Share Save this picture!© Miran Kambič+ 13 Share Single-family house in Groharjevo / 3biro Houses CopyHouses•Škofja Loka, Slovenia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/528117/single-family-house-in-groharjevo-3biro Clipboardcenter_img Year:  Architects: 3biro Area Area of this architecture project Single-family house in Groharjevo / 3biroSave this projectSaveSingle-family house in Groharjevo / 3biro ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/528117/single-family-house-in-groharjevo-3biro Clipboard 2009 “COPY” Photographs CopyAbout this office3biroOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesŠkofja LokaSloveniaPublished on July 23, 2014Cite: “Single-family house in Groharjevo / 3biro” 23 Jul 2014.
