Klouse named Firefighter of the Year

first_img Please enter your name here Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Gala Winner:Firefighter of the Year – Donald KlouseEngineer Donald Klouse of the Apopka Fire Department was named Firefighter of the Year at the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Gala event held at the Highland Manor Friday.AFD Engineer Donald Klouse“This award is reflective of all the characteristics and traits that embody the essence of what a career firefighter and emergency responder possess,” said AFD Chief Chuck Carnesale in a speech at the event. “All fire department members are witness to courageous acts of valor, emotional moments of empathy, the outstanding deliverance of leadership, and generous acts of kindness. This year the member that has encompassed so many of these characteristics is Engineer Donald Klouse.”Klouse started his career of service in 1974 with the US Navy serving for 20 years, and retiring as a Chief Petty Officer after an exceptional career which included his last tour on a US Naval Nuclear Submarine. In wanting to continue his service in a different capacity, he chose to enter into the EMS and Fire Service as a second career as an emergency responder.In 1995, Klouse was hired by the AFD, and he quickly was seen as an asset to the community. Later in 1998, he was promoted to the rank of Engineer surpassing others during an exam which is considered to be the most comprehensive promotional exam in the fire service. Several years later in aspiring to continue his growth and educational desires, he successfully completed the rigorous 12-month long Paramedic Program.But away from the AFD, Klouse has another side.Engineer Donald Klouse (pictured standing in the center) was named Firefighter of the Year.His commitment to local organizations during times of needs has proven to be an example for others to follow. He can oftentimes be seen donating his personal time at local food banks and has made himself available for many years during civic events at a moment’s notice. He even dressed as Santa Clause this past Christmas and delivered gifts to all of the patients at Sunbelt Health and Rehab Center here in Apopka. Each Christmas he will purchase several bicycles for less fortunate children, assuring that in a small way he can help put a smile on their face. These actions have been occurring for many years and are unsolicited, and just something that brings joy to him and his family.“Engineer Klouse has been a valued member of this department and I could spend much more time describing all his other accomplishments, yet it was never his style to brag,” said Carnesale. “Don Klouse has shown his family, members of the community, and his fellow firefighters exactly what determination and strong will can produce.” Mama Mia Please enter your comment!

For those people who have a long experience of living in single-unit houses with a courtyard, it is a great challenge to change their life style and live in apartment houses.Losing many of desirable advantages of single unit houses such as independency, fellowship with nature, existence of hierarchy and, natural ventilation and … is a trouble for the people who want to live apartment units.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiAnd also in this project the client had decided to transform his single unit house into a triple unit apartment for himself and his two children.In fact Mehrabad House is an effort to reduce the negative impacts of this transformation in peoples life style. Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSo in design career the following decisions were made:-According to the emplacement of fatherhood house in highest level, some part of roof area considered as a courtyard for this unit (as an equivalent for old yard in old fatherhood house), and some spaces in old fatherhood yard like flower bed, some roofed spaces for sitting and a barbecue, recreated in the new courtyard.Save this picture!© Farshid Nasrabadi-In the next step for having the maximum visual connection between this unit and its courtyard in roof area, we broke the saloon’s roof in to two parts with different height. So we gained better ventilation and lightening condition and a desirable visual connection.Save this picture!Basement / Ground FloorSave this picture!1st / 2nd Floor-Creating an open space in north side of building as a patio beside the family room and creating a green wall inside it in order to making the sense of freshness and having natural ventilation inside.-As old fatherhood house had a semi-open and very useful space called AIVAN(a Persian word) beside the main hall, we tried to create an equivalent for it in new fatherhood house in north side of building.- Trying to creating suitable spaces as a reply to privacy need of people.Save this picture!© Farshid Nasrabadi-Creating some green spaces with plants in different levels of building, in order to running away from spiritless sense of living in an apartment.- making some places in building’s façade for plants growth and using material like wood and brick (as we believe that they are breathing all the time) to make the building alive.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiProduct Description. Brick is one of the main materials used in this project. And it is because of the historical background of the project’s city that logically leads the architect’s mind toward vernacular materials in order to harmonize the project with its context.Project gallerySee allShow lessBarn Rijswijk / Workshop architectenSelected ProjectsHeduli Paddy Hotel / C&C DESIGNSelected Projects Share Mehrabad House / Sarsayeh Architectural Office Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeSarsayeh Architectural OfficeOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIsfahanIranPublished on December 20, 2016Cite: “Mehrabad House / Sarsayeh Architectural Office” 19 Dec 2016.

Sitting within one of the most prestigious residential areas in Metro Manila, Cuenca House is perched on a 535 sqm site in Ayala Alabang Village. The land, once belonging to a classic ‘White House’ commonly found in the area, was split from an original plot spanning 1600 sqm which the former owner divided into three. The new home occupies the middle plot, where the client envisioned a 2-story bungalow complete with a basement and swimming pool.Save this picture!Courtesy of ONG&ONGSituated slightly off a round-about, the new house is raised about 1.5m above street level. The basement area, or lower first floor in local parlance, was conceptualized to be an entertainment area. This section also houses a study room, which the client requested in order to use as a home office. The upper 1st floor contains the dining room and main living room. Intended as a space for the lady of the house to host and entertain guests, it boasts enchanting views of the swimming pool and outdoor pavilion.Save this picture!Lower First Floor PlanPrivate spaces within Cuenca House have been placed on the 2nd floor, which includes the master bedroom, along with 3 additional bedrooms all designed with ensuite bathrooms. There is also an additional guest bedroom placed within the upper 1st floor, designed to provide an easy option to accommodate relatives and close friends of the family. To fully capitalize on the new property’s wonderful location, architects positioned Cuenca House in a manner that would seclude it from neighboring homes.Save this picture!Courtesy of ONG&ONGThe client desired a house that would be distinctive from the Spanish-styled villas typical to the neighborhood, leading architects to create a new residence that was inspired by an Asian lantern concept. Imagined as a beacon or a lighthouse within the neighborhood, the new home features a top floor structure that acts as a lamp frame, where seamless wall-to-wall glass works to create shade – making the house a true guiding light within its locale. Save this picture!Courtesy of ONG&ONGProject gallerySee allShow lessThis Crowdsourced and Crowdfunded Pavilion in Ukraine Embodies the Collaborative SpiritArchitecture NewsShanghai Hecheng Renovation / Stefano Boeri Architetti ChinaSelected Projects Share Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Cuenca House / ONG&ONG Pte LtdSave this projectSaveCuenca House / ONG&ONG Pte Ltdlast_img read more

‘The people continue to fight’ coup regime’s attack in Ukraine

first_imgBarricades outside the People’s Council building in Donetsk.April 10 — Desperate to stamp out a popular uprising in southeastern Ukraine, the fascist junta in Kiev — which came to power through a violent coup against elected President Viktor Yanukovych — is moving to crush the newly declared People’s Republic of Donetsk and rebellions in other cities.But anti-fascists throughout the region continue to resist in the face of increasing repression by the U.S.-backed regime.Arsen Avakov, the junta’s interior minister, arrived in the southeast of the country on April 9, delivering a 48-hour ultimatum to protesters occupying government buildings in Donetsk and Lugansk to surrender or face military attack. The deadline expires at nightfall on April 11.Avakov, a leader of the far-right Fatherland Party, was tasked with bringing the various neo-Nazi groups under the regime’s discipline. To this end, he created a “National Guard” composed of members of the Right Sector, the Euromaidan Self Defense Forces and other racist gangs from western Ukraine.Arson at Communist Party headquarters in Kiev.Photo: Communist Party of UkraineThe Communist Party of Ukraine’s headquarters in Kiev was set on fire April 9, just hours after a court ordered the Interior Ministry to remove fascists who’ve occupied it since the coup. Euromaidan Self Defense goons, now employed by the Interior Ministry, were photographed tearing up red flags outside the building shortly before it was torched.In the southeast, police and military units unwilling to act against the local populace have been replaced by “special task forces” from western Ukraine.According to Ukrainian and Russian sources, Avakov has also enlisted foreign mercenaries from the U.S.-based Greystone Ltd., which describes itself on its website as “providing protective support services and training.”U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip Breedlove, in charge of NATO forces in Europe, told the Associated Press on April 10 that U.S. troops could soon be deployed in the region. NATO has scheduled an “emergency meeting” on Ukraine for April 14.Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy destroyer U.S.S. Donald Cook was expected to arrive in the Black Sea near Russian waters, where it will join other U.S., Bulgarian and Romanian warships in provocative “war games” aimed at Russia, on April 10.All of these forces are now deployed against the popular resistance in the largely Russian-speaking southeast, where the anti-fascist and working-class traditions of Soviet times still run deep, and where some look to Russia as a last line of defense against the neo-Nazi threat from Kiev.But instead of intimidating the resistance, the fascists have angered those fighting back and the struggle has spread. After losing ground earlier in the week, anti-fascists in Lugansk held onto government buildings. Miners in the Donbas region have downed tools to go to the defense of Donetsk. Hundreds have remained in the streets of Kharkov despite a ban on protests.And even in the western Ukraine city of Lviv, near the Polish border, progressive forces briefly seized the local prosecutor’s office to protest a new appointment by Kiev.Donetsk prepares to fightIn Donetsk, capital of the Donbas mining region, protesters seized the Regional State Administration building on April 6 and declared an independent People’s Republic of Donetsk. The new People’s Council, with the support of thousands of demonstrators in the main square, announced a referendum for May 11 to determine the future of the region.The demand for a referendum has gripped the masses throughout the southeast, who want autonomy or independence from the fascist, pro-NATO regime in Kiev, which is in the process of imposing austerity in return for International Monetary Fund loans.Calling for a general mobilization of the populace, the People’s Council said April 9: “According to information from our activists at civilian roadblocks, Ukrainian armored vehicles are on their way to Donetsk. The Kiev junta has decided to solve the problem posed by our protest by military force.“But their politicians and security forces are afraid of the presence of civilians near the building, where a large number of foreign journalists are also present.“Last night, thanks to the presence of thousands of people around the Lugansk state security headquarters, people formed a human shield around the building to protect it and the presence of militias barricaded inside prevented police from carrying out their orders to kill our comrades.“Let’s be worthy of our comrades from Lugansk! Protect our militia guarding the building of the People’s Council! Let’s defend our independence and freedom!”And the people responded.Activists and volunteers, including many youth and retirees, have built barricades around the RSA building and other protest strongholds, set up checkpoints on roads, gathered food, water and medical supplies, and joined defense trainings against the expected military assault.On the night of April 9-10, teams of activists blocked several military buses and prevented them from deploying troops near the RSA.“We will be on duty here all night, because the assault could begin at any moment,” one activist on night-watch duty told Ria Novosti.Sergey Tsyplakov, deputy director of the People’s Militia of Donbas, said: “In Donetsk airport, about 100 people from the National Guard have been housed. Around 100 Right Sector bandits are also in the city, as well as a hundred employees from a private U.S. military company operating under contract with the Kiev junta.“In total, there are around 300 professionals or well-trained and motivated fanatics,” Tsyplakov said. “This is a major force, but we are ready to fight.”Kharkov: ‘Resistance does not subside’In the city of Kharkov, where the struggle has been led by the People’s Unity coalition and the leftist Union Borotba (Struggle), protesters seized the local RSA building and declared a People’s Republic on April 7.The People’s Council called for regional autonomy, including independence from NATO, renationalization of former Soviet industry and priority to collective forms of ownership.That night, hundreds of fascists and mercenaries wearing Special Forces uniforms attacked the building. They arrested 70 people and dispersed the protesters — but only temporarily.Kiev-allied city officials declared they would ban mass protests in Freedom Square and the city center.But the next day, hundreds again gathered on the square and outside the fascist-occupied RSA building.On April 9, more than 500 people turned out to demand the release of the detained activists, Borotba reported. The fearful authorities had the courthouse surrounded by 1,000 police and refused to admit members of the public.People picketed the courthouse for several hours, chanting “Power to the people! Freedom for the Kharkov defenders!” while parents shouted, “Free our children!”The activists were sentenced to two months imprisonment or a fine of 180,000 hryvnia — about $14,000 each.Simultaneously, hundreds more rallied at Freedom Square ahead of a court hearing on the planned demonstration ban. “The ban is aimed not only at us, but at all Kharkovites,” charged Borotba’s Svetlana Tsiberganova.Borotba and People’s Unity have called for a major demonstration on April 12 in defiance of the ban.“Despite the repression, the resistance does not subside,” declared Borotba coordinator Sergei Kirichuk. “The people are going to continue the fight.”Thanks to Dmitry Kolesnik for invaluable assistance with translation and sources.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

March sadness: Dixon ‘shocked’ by NCAA Tournament exclusion as men’s basketball head to NIT

first_imgFacebook Twitter Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ printTCU forward JD Miller looks down in disbelief after the Horned Frogs don’t hear their name called on Selection Sunday. Photo by Heesoo Yang. The TCU men’s basketball team was “shocked” the NCAA Tournament selection committee didn’t invite them to the Big Dance Sunday.“After the second bracket was revealed, we knew there were only a couple teams left and a couple slots we were available for, so once it got down to the last bracket, it was all or nothing,” point guard Alex Robinson said. “It’s very disappointing, pretty much everyone had us safely projected in. It’s tough.” The #TCU Horned Frogs are stunned as they’re locked out of the NCAA Tournament. Most projections had them in the last four in. TCU is listed as the third-closest team that didn’t get into the field. The Big 12 gets six teams in the field. #MarchMadness2019 pic.twitter.com/hc9yeooYcc— Garrett Podell (@garrettpodell) March 17, 2019The Horned Frogs won 20 games in arguably the toughest conference in the country and finished the season strong with a win in Austin against the Texas Longhorns and a thrilling win over Oklahoma State in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament. “We’re disappointed, obviously because we saw the projections and pretty much everybody we saw had us in, so it looks like we’re the team that’s probably the most surprised in the country, ” head coach Jamie Dixon said. “Certainly not something that you want to be, but that’s where we’re at. We’ve got to now get over our disappointment and get ready for the NIT, and play the best basketball we can going forward here.”TCU head coach Jamie Dixon looks on in stunned disappointment as his team is left out of the NCAA Tournament field. Photo by Heesoo Yang.The Frogs ranked as arguably the biggest “snub” of the Big Dance. TCU was ranked No. 52 in the NCAA’s new NET (NCAA Evaluation Tool) standings, which was higher than Ohio State (55) and St. John’s (73). both of which earned at-large bids.“Again, shocked, but things don’t always go the way that people project or plan,” Dixon said. Instead of the Horned Frogs, the committee opted for other “bubble” teams like Ohio State, Belmont, Arizona State and St. John’s.Only six Big 12 teams earned spots in the field after several bracket experts thought as many as eight could make it.“It seems like we’re being penalized for playing in the toughest league in the country, and that shouldn’t be the case,” Dixon said.TCU guards Desmond Bane (left) and Kenric Davis (center) soak in the reality that the Horned Frogs aren’t going back to March Madness. Photo by Heesoo Yang. Dixon said his team’s losses on Feb. 11 in Fort Worth against Kansas and Feb. 26 in Morgantown against West Virginia played a role in their exclusion from the NCAA Tournament.However, the thought of the TCU community feeling disappointment and shock over being “snubbed” out of an NCAA Tournament bid was unthinkable just three years ago. Until last year, the team hadn’t made the tournament since 1998. “I know this kind of disappointment is new for Fort Worth and TCU, but we talked about being the team that made it to the tournament two years in a row, and everyone had us in there,” Dixon said. “I guess there’s some part of me that will say we’ve made significant progress, but I’m really disappointed to not make the tournament. In the next 24 hours, we have to work on turning that around and getting ready for our next opponent.”The Horned Frogs’ next opponent will be the No. 8 seed Sam Houston State in the first round of the NIT Wednesday. TCU earned a No. 1 seed in the 32-team field, which means every game of the tournament leading up to the last two rounds will be in front of the Horned Frog faithful at Schollmaier Arena.“It’s bittersweet because we wanted to get into the NCAA Tournament, but being able to play at home again as a senior is going to be big for me,” Robinson said. Tip off is set for 8:00 p.m. Wednesday in Fort Worth. TCU athletics director Jeremiah Donati (center) looks down in disbelief after TCU didn’t receive bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Federal police violate confidentiality of reporter’s sources by raiding his home

first_img Reporters Without Borders is very disturbed by this week’s raid on the Canberra home of Philip Dorling, a reporter for the Canberra Times daily, by federal police seeking classified defence documents cited in a story reporting that close allies Japan and South Korea were priority targets for Australia’s spies as well as countries such as China and North Korea.“We firmly condemn this attack on the right to the confidentiality of journalists’ sources, an inviolable principle that is one of the cornerstones of press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This violation is all the more disturbing as the Labour government had announced that it would pass a law strengthening protection for journalists in Australia.”The 23 September raid on Dorling’s home was carried out by seven members of the federal police investigation the leaking of Defence Intelligence Organisation documents for a story published in the Canberra Times on 14 June. It quoted from classified briefing papers prepared for defence minister Joel Fitzgibbon shortly after the November 2007 parliamentary elections and gave a rare insight into the activities of Australia’s intelligence agencies.Accompanied by two computer experts, the police spent for than five hours looking for documents in Dorling’s home. They had a search warrant that accused Dorling of violating the Commonwealth Crimes Act by communicating confidential government information. They finally left with his laptop, the hard drive from a second computer, various documents and a copy of the 14 June issue of the Canberra Times.The newspaper’s editor, Peter Fray, said Dorling “was doing his job – the job of every journalist – to reveal the truth.” Calling the raid “an outrageous action against the freedom of the press,” Dorling said it showed that the current government was using the same police methods against journalists as its predecessor.Australia’s Right to Know, a media coalition, called on the government to pass a law that will protect investigative journalists from being hunted down and prosecuted. “There is no evidence that national security or public safety is at risk or that this information could lead to a serious crime … and therefore there are simply no legitimate grounds for today’s police raid,” the coalition said.
