TAGSSkyway Bridge Previous articleAAA: 1 in 5 U.S. Drivers Want an Electric VehicleNext articleWekiva senior receives scholarship from Apopka City Commissioners Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR May 14, 2018 at 8:42 am May 9th, 1980Freighter crashes into a support column, 35 people dieFrom WikipediaAt 7:33 a.m. on May 9th, 1980, the freighter MV Summit Venture collided with a pier (support column) of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge during a blinding thunderstorm, sending over 1,200 feet (370 m) of the bridge plummeting into Tampa Bay. The collision caused six cars, a truck, and a Greyhound bus to fall 150 feet into the water, killing 35 people.One man, Wesley MacIntire, survived the fall when his pickup truck landed on the deck of the Summit Venture before falling into the bay. He sued the company that owned the ship and settled for $175,000 in 1984. The pilot of the ship, John Lerro, was cleared of wrongdoing by both a state grand jury and a Coast Guard investigation. The south main pier (the one that required reinforcement before completion) withstood the ship strike without significant damage. It was the second pier to the south of it that was destroyed, a secondary pier that was not designed to withstand a large ship strike.After the Summit Venture disaster, the southbound span was used as a temporary fishing pier and the northbound span was converted back to carry one lane in either direction until the current bridge opened. Before the old bridge was demolished and hauled away in barges, MacIntire (the only survivor in the collapse) was the last person to drive over it. He was accompanied by his wife, and when they reached the top of the bridge, they dropped 35 white carnations into the water, one for each person who died in the disaster. Both the main spans of both the intact northbound bridge and the damaged southbound bridge were demolished in 1993 and the approaches for both old spans were made into the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. These approaches sit 1⁄2 mile (800 m) to the south and west of the current bridge. The approaches of the 1950 span were demolished in 2008.Governor Bob Graham’s idea for the design of the current bridge won out over other proposals, including a tunnel (deemed impractical due to Florida’s high water table) and a simple reconstruction of the broken section of the old bridge that would not have improved shipping conditions. The new bridge’s main span is 50% wider than the old bridge. The piers of the main span and the approaches for 1⁄4 mile (400 m) in either direction are surrounded by large concrete barriers, called “dolphins“, that can protect the bridge piers from collisions by ships larger than the Summit Venture like tankers, container ships, and cruise ships.

I don’t even like the newer version of it either. I like the Howard Franklin Bridge just fine, but don’t have your gas tank too low, as you start over it, as it is pretty long, about 3 miles long, not as long as the 7 mile bridge, over the Florida Keys, but still long enough, to not have a low gas tank level when you start over it, or you’ll be sorry…….I guess a person prone to seasickness, could get seasick when going over the bridge, but I never had that problem, even on some extremely rough rides out in the ocean.

It is a historical residential area developing from the beginning of showa era 1960 by scraping off bedrock. The site is surrounded by houses, apartment, and a nearby house which client’s son family is living, so the clients requested living in privacy, but a sunny and breezy house while considering connection with the nearby house. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro TakagiTo take appropriate distances from the surroundings,first I decided to put volume at the middle of the site. Instead of no window at outer walls, I took out four spaces as terraces from the volume: the entrance, a side door connecting to main house, a bright wash room, and a garden space softly divides living room and bedroom. Then setting high or small windows in those spaces allows daylight in with good ventilation while keeping privacy. As for the roof, I cut off the slope at the four corner of central volume to adjust to surrounding houses; besides, there is a skylight to release hot air and prompt natural ventilation. Save this picture!© Yasuhiro TakagiThe flat shape formed by equivalently arranged rooms including exterior terraces gives an impression that the space is unending. On the other hands, the space expression is ever changing since each room has various specifications; exterior to interior; woody color to inorganic white color; and flat ceiling to inclined ceiling. It is like African music which has a unique sound by playing various rhythm at the same time, that is to say, Yagiyama house is created as architecture by combining individual rhythm of each space. This kind of architecture is producing various time and space from moment to moment, so every day each client can find the place where each of them feels comfortable; such as the moment their grand children happily running around, family dinner with feeling a breeze, reading under the sunshine, or bath time under the star-filled sky. I hope this architecture achieved “fluctuation” of space which allows creative and fascinating life.Save this picture!Courtesy of Kazuya Saito ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessVasas Sports Hall Facade Competition Entry / A4 StudioArticles’Solar Loop’ Competition Entry / Paolo Venturella & MenoMenoPiu ArchitectsArticles Share CopyAbout this officeKazuya Saito ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSendai-shiWoodHousesJapanPublished on November 14, 2012Cite: “House Yagiyama / Kazuya Saito Architects” 14 Nov 2012.

Home Commentary Commentary: Focus on the Vision, not the Vindictive SHARE Commentary: Focus on the Vision, not the Vindictive SHARE By Gary TruittWell, here we are in the heart of election season. The conventions are over, the campaign commercials have begun in earnest, and the name calling has declined to the level of a junior high playground. Over the next few months, we in the ag media will be reporting on where different candidates stand on various farm issues. The truth is, however, that their positions, proposals, and promises don’t add up to a bag of beans and should be ignored. What is important is vision — how they see the future.This realization occurred to me as I was sitting in the recent Lt. Governor’s Debate on Agriculture held in Boone County, Indiana. For 50 minutes, the three candidates for the Lt. Governor position in Indiana dutifully answered questions from three other ag journalists and me about a variety of farm issues from broadband to trade to hemp. The GOP incumbent came well-prepared and had polished answers with lots of facts and figures and very little substance. The Democratic challenger was candid and passionate but admitted she knew nothing about agriculture and had only been studying the issues for the past few weeks. The Libertarian never really answered the questions just restated what the issues were and how they were a problem that needed to be solved.By the luck of the draw, I got to ask the final question. Trying to get something a little deeper than I had heard so far, I asked each of them for their vision of the future of agriculture. This took them off their prepared scripts and talking points and gave us a glimpse of what was under the hood. On one hand we saw a well-tuned engine with considerable millage on it but running well and ready to continue to perform at the same level. We also saw a new engine with lots of horsepower but having never been started. The third engine was a hybrid of experimental design and questionable engineering. I will let my fellow Hoosiers figure all that out.On the national scene, in what journalist H.l. Mencken called “A Carnival of Buncombe,” the same approach can be used. Mencken astutely observed that what candidates for the White House really want is “the job.” Thus, they will say anything and promise anything to anybody at any time if it will help them get the job. This may seem cynical, and it is; but it is also reality, and to think otherwise is delusional. Thus, don’t be distracted by what Donald Trump or Joe Biden say or promise on any specific ag issue. Try, as best you can, to discern their vision for the future of agriculture and for our country. Then, decide if that approach is going to help your family and farm grow and prosper in the years ahead.With so much uncertainty in our economy and our world, it is impossible to say with any degree of confidence what is going to work or not work in the years ahead. The vision and approach our leaders take into that future will determine how they react and adapt, not the promises made or the things said in the closing days of the campaign.

GreeceEurope – Central Asia News News Help by sharing this information Organisation Reporters Without Borders wishes to express its disgust at the assault on several journalists by the Greek neo-Nazi Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avgi) party spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris in the course of a live televised debate today during which he also attacked two left-wing deputies. “The behaviour of Ilias Kasidiaris is both unacceptable and indicative of the aggressive attitude of the Gold Dawn party towards its political opponents and the media,” the international press freedom organization said.

It would be unconscionable for Mr. Kasidiaris, who won a seat in parliament in the 6 May legislative elections, to be protected by any form of parliamentary immunity.” During a morning political talk show on the commercial television station Antenna (ANT1), Kasidiaris attacked two other guests on the programme, Rena Douro of the left-wing Syriza party and communist Liana Kanelli. After hurling insults at Douro, who had referred to legal proceedings pending against Kasidiaris, he threw a glass of water in her face then slapped and punched Kanelli. The programme was halted. Members of the editorial team told Reporters Without Borders that the neo-Nazi politician then struck the programme’s presenter Giorgos Papadakis, a cameraman and two journalists who tried to prevent him from fleeing the studio. As he left Kasidiaris damaged a door and threatened the journalists who were taking photographs of him, saying: “You’ll see what happens if you publish them!”Against the backdrop of the severe economic crisis in Greece, it is increasingly difficult for journalists to carry out their job of keeping the pubic informed. Growing militancy by far-left and far-right groups among others is a highly sensitive subject. Immigrants are regularly the targets of attacks by Golden Dawn supporters. Gil Shefler, a journalist with the Jerusalem Post told Reporters Without Borders he was beaten up two days ago in central Athens near the National Archaeological Museum, an area regularly patrolled by police because of its proximity to the ministry of culture and the city’s anarchist district. “I was walking in the street when I witnessed an attack on a group of people by about 15 masked men,” he told Reporters Without Borders by telephone.“Most those being attacked appeared to be immigrants, but I can’t confirm that was the case with all of them. So it was impossible for me to say with any certainty whether it was an attack by neo-Nazis, or by a group from the opposite side. “However, as soon as I took out my camera in a professional reaction, five assailants chased after me. They caught up with me and beat me with their sticks. This happened in broad daylight. The police took 20 minutes to arrive (…) I was hospitalized with injuries to my head and chest, but I am feeling better now. I think I was very lucky. It could have been a lot worse.” February 2, 2021 Find out more

We want this monument to remember all the people who worked in the factories and the role they played in Limerick commerce.“Every year on August 15 we have a mass at St Johns Cathedral for the members, deceased and living, of the Pork Butchers Union. If we were able to erect the monument by August 15 next year, that would be fantastic,” said Joe Hayes of the Limerick Pork Butchers Society.The Limerick Pork Butchers were famed for their generosity towards Dublin workers during the Great Lock Out of 1913.Jim Larkin said that the Limerick Pork Butchers “sent more money every week in proportion to their strength than any other union”.Metropolitan Mayor Jerry O’Dea has already pledged his support to the campaign, and the Society is also hoping to collaborate on an exhibition and book with the help of the Limerick Archives.“It started with the memorial stone idea and it’s just snowballed from there. Jacqui Hayes in the Limerick Archives started digging up information and then she said ‘let’s do a book’,” said Mr Hayes.He added that anyone wishing to contribute photographs or share their stories of the Limerick Pork Butchers could get in touch with Ms Hayes at City Hall.

When the Government brought forward their reopening plan to June 29, staff rallied to assist with getting the sites ready. Despite a major marketing campaign and a slight bounce in domestic visitors it hasn’t made-up for the loss of our international customers.“Our focus now is on protecting our employees’ jobs in the long-term, which requires difficult short-term decision so that we can survive, recover and rebuild. Unless we receive Government support, we will unfortunately be forced to close Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and King John’s Castle on the August 31.“However it is our desire to keep both Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and King John’s Castle open beyond the traditional summer season this year. That is why, given the significant losses that will be made during off-season, we have made a submission to government seeking funding to enable us continue operations at the sites.“We urgently await the outcome of that request and in the meantime are exploring all options around the viability of these facilities beyond 2020.” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Email Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Previous articleHSE maintains silence over Covid outbreak at Limerick direct provision centreNext articleAll you need to know as the Pro 14 returns with the clash of Munster and Leinster Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads WhatsApp BusinessLimerickNewsShannon Group seeking funding for Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and King John’s CastleBy Staff Reporter – August 20, 2020 116
