Located in Muskoka, Ontario, the Bridge House overlooks the south end of Lake Joseph, one of three large lakes in the region. The house is located on a rock outcrop overlooking the lake and the boathouse and breaks the mould of faux-traditional architecture typical of the region.Save this picture!© David WhittakerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© David WhittakerThe building is L-shaped in plan, with the main living space and master bedroom wing separated from the guest bedroom wing by an elevated screened porch. The plan of the main living wing was developed to create circulation along either side of the plan to maximize openness, views, and transparency.Save this picture!© David WhittakerSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© David WhittakerThe L-Shaped floor plan hugs the curved crest of the hill. The building emerges from the rock face defining an edge and creating a gateway, an arrival from the water that emphasizes the boundary between the hectic city environment and the serenity of the lakeside location. The screened porch forms a “Bridge” which spans the space between the two wings, creating a threshold between the driveway and the lake. The building appears to be a part of its site, merging with the rock overlooking the lake.Save this picture!© David WhittakerProject gallerySee allShow lessGHESKIO Tuberculosis Hospital / MASS Design GroupSelected ProjectsIpojuca Apartment / Balaio ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Year:  “COPY”center_img Products translation missing: Projects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  6338 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Landscape: Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: +VG Architects Area Area of this architecture project Peter Berton, Partner-in-Charge Manufacturers: Louis Poulsen, Rieder Group CopyAbout this office+VG ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOn FacebookCanadaPublished on April 20, 2020Cite: “Bridge House / +VG Architects” 20 Apr 2020.

Another five journalists killed in targeted attack on TV station


first_img RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Help by sharing this information News December 28, 2020 Find out more Organisation December 16, 2020 Find out more News Receive email alerts February 15, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Iraq Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” to go further News IraqMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn that five journalists were killed when gunmen staged a suicide attack yesterday on the headquarters of Salaheddin TV in the northern city of Tikrit. Two of the four gunmen detonated their explosive vests while security forces shot the other two before they could detonate theirs. Owned by the local government, Salaheddin is the biggest TV station in Salaheddin province. The five employees killed by the explosions were chief news editor Raad Yassin, producer Jamal Abdel Nasser, cameraman Mohamed Ahmad Al-Khatib, presenter Wissam Al-Azzawi and the archives manager Mohamed Abdel Hamid. Four other employees were injured.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and colleagues of these journalists and we urge the authorities to ensure that this attack is independently investigated and that those behind it are brought to justice,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This appalling act cannot go unpunished.“The horrific scale and targeted nature of this attack is unfortunately indicative of a decline in the security situation for journalists in Iraq. More and more journalists are being targeted because of their work. The authorities have a duty to ensure that they are able to work without fearing for their safety.”Reporters Without Borders wrote to the Iraqi authorities on 18 December about the situation of freedom of information in Iraq and the security climate for media personnel. RWB is now releasing the text of the letter and hopes the authorities will take the necessary measures to end these attacks.Journalists are increasingly the targets of deliberate attacks whose perpetrators and instigators are rarely identified. At least 12 have been killed in the past three months. Others have been threatened. But the authorities still have not taken the necessary measures to protect journalists and still have not ordered proper investigations aimed at bringing these responsible to justice.

CVPS completes Readsboro Electric purchase


first_imgCentral Vermont Public Service (NYSE-CV) has completed the purchase of the Town of Readsboro’s franchise territory and electric department assets.  The $360,000 deal includes about 14 miles of distribution line and associated equipment, and the exclusive franchise Readsboro held to serve its 330 customers.  The purchased assets also include Readsboro’s small ownership interest in Vermont’s high-voltage transmission company, specifically 133 shares of VELCO stock and 9,651 shares of Vermont Transco.‘Readsboro customers will fit perfectly into our southern Vermont territory,’ CVPS President Larry Reilly said.  ‘We have two operations centers within proximity to the town, and we serve most of the surrounding territory.‘CVPS will be able to offer most customers lower rates, new services and rate choices, top-notch customer service, and award-winning operations.  This is a nice addition to our customer base.’Among the service offerings are CVPS Electripay, an automated bill payment program; on-line bill review; CVPS Cow Powerâ ¢; even monthly billing; Speedpay, an on-line payment program; and service guarantees for everything from bill accuracy to on-time appointments.CVPS’s rates have been generally lower than Readsboro’s rates; the typical customer will see a rate decrease of about 0.32 percent in their first CV bills. The Vermont Public Service Board approved the sale on July 8. Town voters approved the sale of the Readsboro Electric Department in March 2010. Selectmen had attempted to sell the utility for several years, but voters twice rejected the idea, the last time by just a handful of votes in 2009.  Under the agreement, CVPS will reimburse Readsboro for half of its reasonable legal fees and expenses related to this transaction.CVPS, founded in 1929 through the consolidation of eight electric companies, now includes territory once served by more than 100 different companies.  CVPS is listed by Forbes magazine as one of the most trustworthy companies in America. CVPS is in the process of being bought by GazMetro and merged into one company with Green Mountain Power. GazMetro, from Quebec, owns GMP and Vermont Gas Systems. The merger is expected to be completed by mid-2012.last_img read more
