The house is sited to engage the undulating hillside and capture the spectacular views of Mount Tamalpais and the San Francisco Bay. A curved retaining wall follows the contours of the hillside and anchors the house to the steep site. The house is tucked under the living roof, which visually merges the house with the land. Growing out of the hillside, the roof is carved away to form a protected courtyard for the pool. Three volumes housing the living room, kitchen-dining area, and master bedroom rise up above the living roof with shed roofs angled to capture the sun for photovoltaic and solar hot water panels. The house incorporates passive and active heating and cooling systems, battery storage, and a cistern for water runoff management.

Cayenne isthe capital of French Guiana.On 16 September 2004, Farine, a correspondent for Radio FranceInternational’s (RFI) online news service, was refused permission toaccompany the Overseas Departments Minister on an 18 September mission -dubbed “Operation Anaconda” – to wipe-out illegal gold-washing sites in thesouth. When the journalist requested permission to board the army helicopterthat had been assigned for the press, he was reportedly told by theprefecture’s administrative director, Daniel Josserand-Jaillet, “You areconstantly writing negative things about the prefectural services. I am notgoing to put you on the press list for Ms. Girardin’s visit.”When contacted by “Le Monde” correspondent Laurent Marot on the afternoon of16 September, Josserand-Jaillet confirmed that Farine had been excluded forhis “presumptuous behaviour” and for his “negative articles” about variousprefectural departments.

Matt Seyler/ABC News(ANNAPOLIS, Md.) — The U.S. Naval Academy freshmen scaled the Herndon Monument in the annual climb Monday.The event was part of a tradition in Annapolis, Maryland, where the freshmen or “plebes” build a human pyramid and climb a 21-foot monument to replace the “dixie cup” hat with an upperclassman’s hat. Finishing in one hour and five minutes, they beat last year’s time of two hours and 21 minutes.Upperclassmen slathered the monument in nearly 50 pounds of vegetable shortening and freshmen were required to remove their shoes before they started.“We call it the culminating event for the end of their freshmen year,” said Jenny Erickson, a U.S. Naval Academy spokesperson.The first recorded climb was in 1950, without grease. The greasy climb is a rite of passage for “plebes,” or freshmen, to mark officially becoming Midshipmen 4th Class. Christian Schwein, 19, from the 27th Company, had the honor of placing the hat atop the monument this year.According to tradition, the midshipman who gets the hat on top will become the first admiral in the class.The Herndon Monument is named for Navy Cmdr. William Lewis Herndon, who “possessed the qualities of discipline, teamwork and courage.”Much like the monument, the climb represents the teamwork, and perseverance freshmen have to endure in the first year at the academy. In addition to their academic responsibilities, they undergo military-style training including six weeks of “Plebe Summer” which is similar to basic training in the military.

My resourcesOn 9 Sep 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Andrew Thompson, International HR director, OxfamPublications When it comes to magazines, I’m a binge-reader. I starve myself ofintelligent reading for up to three weeks, until the stack of magazines in myreading tray has reached crisis proportions, and then I take the lot on thetrain and read them all in one go – skimming through the articles until I findones I want to ‘feed’ on. We also subscribe to an excellent service that Cranfield University offersfor binge-readers – every few months, it circulates the contents pages of awide range of management magazines published recently and you select thearticles you want copies of. With newspapers and Personnel Today, I am much more of a grazer. I read themas they come in or as people leave them on the train – The Metro, The Mirror,whatever happens to be lying around. Of course, I also need to keep up with world events but I vary my intakefrom day-to-day: The Guardian, The Economist, The Times, Radio 4 Todayprogramme, BBC News, BBC World Service, and any newspaper written in Englishoutside the UK, depending on what I’m doing and where in the world I’m doingit. Books It’s been a while since I read anything academic or conceptual longer thanfive pages. Most of the gurus manage to turn a concept that could be summed up in a fewpages into 300 pages by the simple but boring device of giving us lots ofsimilar examples. However, I have just ordered David Urich’s Human ResourceChampions and HR Scorecard, as five pages is not enough sometimes. Normally, I like to lose myself in a good fantasy story such as The Wheel OfTime series by Robert Jordan. I have always tried to stimulate my imaginationby whatever means, as it helps me to think out of the box and tell storiesabout my vision to my team and colleagues. Television Television is something I watch after the kids are in bed and while I’mwaiting for my wife to come off the internet. I rarely watch a whole programme,as I’d rather be sitting with my wife while she is on the computer. Withtravelling, friends, three children and DIY, we don’t get many otheropportunities to be alone. Radio The radio is always on in our house. We really enjoy music in the backgroundand our youngest child now seems to know the words to most songs. Music is another source of inspiration and energy, but it seems thateveryone tells me to turn the music down, even my children. Surely it should bethe other way around? Advertisements Hate them, unless they’ve got decent music or make me laugh. The Linx adwith the Room 5 track is my ideal. Internet Having recently upgraded my PC and signed up to broadband, I am now hooked.But not to the worldwide web. There’s this great online jukebox service thathas the full track history of more than 10,000 artists. You can dial-up anartist and listen to all the tracks at random without paying for each download.Great for dinner parties or just to have constantly playing in the background.I also download music from subscription sites so I can load it onto my laptopfor when I’m travelling. Afghanistan can be a home from home as long as I havemy music with me. Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.
