Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) arrested Jonathan Vitale, 35, of Lake Mary, for attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault during an incident at his residence last night.  According to the SCSO, Vitale fired toward deputies and was struck by return fire, sustaining a non-life threatening injury to his forearm.At approximately 6:40 p.m. last night, deputies responded to a disturbance call at a residence located in the 500 block of Holbrook Circle in unincorporated Lake Mary.  According to family members, Vitale was armed with a knife and making threats to harm himself.When deputies entered the home, they found a knife embedded in a door and heard a gunshot fired from within the home. Deputies retreated to the front of the home to take cover.  Vitale then concealed himself behind a hallway wall and threatened deputies with a laser-equipped firearm.  During the incident, Vitale refused commands to put the weapon down or safely surrender, and instead pointed his firearm at, and fired rounds toward, the deputies.  A deputy returned fire, striking Vitale once on the forearm.   No deputies were injured, and no other family members were inside the residence at the time of the incident.Vitale was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment and then booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility on a no-bond status.  Vitale is scheduled to attend first appearance tomorrow at 9 a.m.The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) is investigating the officer-involved shooting.

Paramount Alma / Plasma Studio

This project was conceived to fulfill a two-part problematic: (1) Residence Alma–a Tyrolean guest house with 6 holiday apartments from the 1960s adorned with a pitched roof–was due for a common circulation and service core, and (2) the project architect, Ulla Hell, was looking for a new home for her young family of five in the mountain community of Sesto, Alto Adige. The result: an under-utilized roof space gave way to an angular crown, connected to a ground floor reception space and architectural office by the host’s renovated spine. Having already made their mark on nearby Residence Königswarte with the addition of the Strata Hotel in 2007, Plasma Studio sought to follow a similar skin organization. A timber strip section in larch wood was borrowed from the neighbouring Strata and extruded along two paths. The first stretches across the site, picking up the topography on either end of the building and climbing to enclose a third storey balcony. Here, the edge skirts around the existing footprint, leaving corners exposed to acknowledge its presence.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles – 20MMCultural / PatrimonialAccoyaAccoya® Wood at a Rescue House in Waddenzee, the Dutch SeaDoorsC.R. LaurenceBlumcraft Panic DevicesA second path draws the timber skin up from behind, folding around the chimney to return to the ground. Interstitial spaces between the exterior walls and wooden bands swell at ground level to offer sheltered outdoor living spaces. The design team employed parametric modelling software to optimize the density of these timber strips and their metal substrustructure, balancing budget, aesthetics, privacy and views. This approach allowed for flexibility throughout the design phase and output shop drawings for pre-fabricated elements at an efficient pace.The Alma addition departs, however, from the Strata in its approach to volume. The practical constraints of a multi- room hotel structure called for a regular distribution of modules along a connecting spine. The perceived volume was achieved through horizontal sections around free-flowing terrace spaces. With the Alma, we took advantage of a more flexible program to create unique spatial conditions. These interior volumes are rendered legible from the exterior by the timber strips–an honest depiction of the playful activity within.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausThe interior of this family home is characterized by 360-degree views. Perhaps the most spectacular of these being a view of the sky through an incision over the central stair. This opening delivers an immediate reading of exterior weather conditions, collecting precipitation and receiving direct sunlight.The main living spaces are split over two floors with first floor bedrooms off a skylit corridor, and an open plan kitchen, dining and family room encircling a fireplace on the second floor. By grouping functional elements in orthogonal cores, the surrounding space is liberated. The exterior walls of the main living spaces collapse inwards to catch light, views and varying degrees of enclosure.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausAll living spaces in the private residence have direct access to the outside through a series terraces or gardens. Its multiple access points include: a main entrance through an internal connection to the neighbouring house, a series of openings that follow the natural topography, and an external stair connecting the third floor terrace to the garden. Each inhabitant has come to find their own favourite route.Limited material and colour palettes give strength to the space, with splashes of colour in the children’s washroom. The otherwise white walls provide a backdrop for an ever-changing display of shadows from the pleated roof above.Save this picture!© Hertha HurnausAs the extension sits within the steep topography, substructural elements were developed in reinforced concrete, while the superstructure was built from prefabricated cross laminated timber (CLT) insulated with wood fiber and sealed with black bitumen. The outer skin in larch wood strips on a galvanized steel structure was determined according to cost and aesthetics by the aforementioned parametric model. A consistently limited colour code was applied to the exterior, allowing the volume to dissolve into the surrounding hillside when viewed from afar.Through its use of form, materials and views, this newly completed addition flirts with its context at three scales. The first, and most immediate, with its host: as an addition to the Alma residence, it shares a newly renovated core, carrying the fractal geometry from the roof down to Plasma’s Italian office through the Alma’s cartesian skeleton. The second, with its neighbour: together the Strata and the Alma define the next generation of the family-owned hotel complex. And finally, with its terrain: the sculptural addition acts, not as a parasite, but as a mediator between the existing house and surrounding topography, extending from the landscape like a lichen.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow less19 Dwellings on Viana Street / García Floquet ArquitectosSelected ProjectsA Peek Into Reiser + Umemoto’s Latest BookPublications Share Year:  Projects Architects: Plasma Studio Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Paramount Alma / Plasma Studio 2012 Area:  420 m² Area:  420 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Save this picture!© Hertha Hurnaus+ 15 Share Paramount Alma / Plasma StudioSave this projectSaveParamount Alma / Plasma Studio “COPY” Photographs Italy ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/412639/paramount-alma-plasma-studio Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/412639/paramount-alma-plasma-studio Clipboard CopyAbout this officePlasma StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSextenHousesItalyPublished on August 08, 2013Cite: “Paramount Alma / Plasma Studio” 08 Aug 2013.

Pogba, United give Sir Alex Ferguson perfect 75th birthday present

first_imgAt Old Trafford, United produced a comeback reminiscent of the glory years of the watching Alex Ferguson to continue their recent upturn.But they had to do it the hard way, with Ibrahimovic initially denied an 18th goal of the season in a contentious incident late in the first half.Leaping to meet Anthony Martial’s left-wing cross, the Swede jabbed the ball past goalkeeper Victor Valdes at the near post, only for referee Lee Mason to rule it out.United’s players, and Jose Mourinho, contested the decision, and there was worse to come when Grant Leadbitter drilled Boro in front from Alvaro Negredo’s knock-down in the 67th minute.But Ibrahimovic did get his goal in the 85th minute, tucking in Martial’s cross, and barely a minute later Pogba headed in the winner from Juan Mata’s cross.It was the perfect ending as Sir Alex Ferguson celebrated his 75th birthday!Champions Leicester City claimed a much-needed win, beating West Ham United 1-0 courtesy of Islam Slimani’s 20th-minute header to climb six points clear of the relegation zone.Swansea City made a demoralising start to life without sacked manager Bob Bradley, slumping to a 3-0 home defeat against Bournemouth that kept them at the foot of the table.Goals from Benik Afobe, Ryan Fraser and Josh King gave Bournemouth victory, with first-team coach Alan Curtis taking temporary charge of Swansea.Andre Gray became the first Burnley player to score a Premier League hat-trick as Sean Dyche’s men beat third-bottom Sunderland 3-1 to climb to 11th place.Gray scored three times in the first 53 minutes at Turf Moor, with Ashley Barnes netting a penalty before Jermain Defoe replied for the visitors.Matt Phillips and Wales’s Euro 2016 star Hal-Robson Kanu scored as West Bromwich Albion came from behind to win 2-1 at Southampton, who had centre-back Virgil van Dijk sent off late on for two bookable offences.Share on: WhatsApp Willian extends Chelsea run, Pogba sinks BoroLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Willian scored twice as Chelsea claimed a record-equalling 13th consecutive Premier League victory by beating Stoke City 4-2 on Saturday to provisionally move nine points clear at the summit.Stoke twice hit back to level after falling behind at Stamford Bridge, but Willian’s second goal and a late Diego Costa strike saw Chelsea match Arsenal’s run of 13 wins within the same season from 2001-02.Antonio Conte’s side pulled nine points clear of second-place Liverpool, who host third-place Manchester City later in the day in an explosive climax to the calendar year.Manchester United came perilously close to seeing their own winning streak end, only for late goals by star signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba to secure a 2-1 home win over Middlesbrough.It was sixth-place United’s fifth straight league win and took them to within a point of fourth-place Arsenal, who host Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace on New Year’s Day.Chelsea welcomed back N’Golo Kante and Costa from suspension for the visit of Stoke and took a 33rd-minute lead when Gary Cahill headed in a corner from Cesc Fabregas.Bruno Martins Indi equalised within seconds of kick-off in the second half, slotting in after Peter Crouch nodded down Charlie Adam’s free-kick.After Willian had restored the hosts’ lead, lashing in from Eden Hazard’s lay-off, Crouch drew Stoke level again in the 64th minute when he tapped in Mame Biram Diouf’s cross.But Willian put Chelsea back in front a minute later and Costa’s late strike sealed victory.– Gray hat-trick –last_img read more

The Thurston Regional Planning Council (TRPC) was also recognized for their role in the Sustainable Thurston project.TRPC lead the planning for the Creating Places, Preserving Spaces community visioning process which took three years and involved thousands of county residents.  In recognizing the effort, Xandre Chateaubriand of the Governor’s Office pointed out that Thurston County did a terrific job of coming up with a vision that will attract high quality jobs and community improvements that will benefit all residents of the county.“Even more impressive is when multiple communities and public partners join to create a shared vision for the future.”  He went on to say the project shows a commitment to preserve, protect and enhance the quality of life we appreciate here in Washington State.Thurston County Commission Chair Karen Valenzuela was the county’s representative to the Sustainable Thurston process.  She points out that all seven cities and towns joined with TRPC and the County to make the program a success.“It was great to see so many people take part in a very public process over the three years.  This vision allows us to make sure that our “ship of state” is headed in the right direction to manage growth while preserving our vanishing natural resources including forests, farmlands and our limited prairie areas.”Lon Wyrick, Director of TRPC, says he is proud of the community-wide effort in the Sustainable Thurston project and the leadership shown by the cities and the County.“It’s important to recognize that the Commissioners were very strong leaders in making the Sustainability Plan happen and along with their support; their ideas and regional direction are key to its ongoing success.”last_img read more

Birkett, Zondi lay down Dusi marker

first_img3 December 2013Andy Birkett and Sbonelo Zondi claimed victory in the 50 Miler Canoe Marathon in KwaZulu-Natal on the weekend to confirm the duo’s status as one of the favourites for 2014 Dusi Canoe Marathon.The 50 Miler covers two-thirds of the Dusi route and focuses on paddling, while portaging comes more to the fore in the Dusi.The Birkett/Zondi combination, first cobbled together for their victory in the Non Stop Dusi earlier this year, is being widely billed as a Dusi Dream Team, but they had not showed all their cards in the current season until their victory over a very strong field of Dusi contenders.They took full advantage of a series of mishaps that befell the fancied crew of Hank McGregor and Jasper Mocke to post a three-minute victory over former K2 marathon world champion Cam Schoeman and his Czech Republic partner Jakub Adam, with 2013 K1 Dusi champ Lance Kime and Thulani Mbanjwa sealing the last spot on the podium.‘Building a partnership’“It was such a great race for us in terms of learning and building the partnership,” Birkett said after the race. “On day one we were not that great in the river, but we got better and better and on the final stage we were really much better in the boat. That really is what building a partnership is all about.“Eric [Sbonelo Zondi] has a great sense of humour and we laugh and chirp each other a lot during the race, which I love,” he added. “Paddling for me is all about fun. If I am not really enjoying myself then I can’t perform,” the recently crowned under- 23 world champion added.The pair started the final day with a short lead over the chasing boats of McGregor and Mocke and Kime and Mbanjwa, and managed to hold onto that lead on the technically demanding section of the uMngeni river below Inanda Dam, which was running at an exciting but unforgiving 22 cumecs level.With the race rules forcing all the crews to paddle around the notorious Burma Road Portage, Birkett and Zondi were first into the nasty Island rapids on the outskirts of Durban and managed to emerge with their lead and boat intact.Wrapped their boatFor chasers McGregor and Mocke, their race ended in Island One Rapid where they wrapped their boat after a nightmarish turn of events.“My splashcover popped from the pressure of the water,” McGregor said, describing their downfall. “The nose didn’t come up and it started filling with water fast. We tried to roll it over, but the boat got sucked under and wrapped around a big brick of a rock.“Thank goodness neither myself nor Jasper got hurt. It took 25 minutes for us to get the boat off the rock, but it was wrecked.“Only our egos are bruised,” he added. “Until that happened, we had been going really well. We caught the leaders before Side Chute Rapid and there was plenty of laughing and joking. It was just a great day on the river.“Maybe I jinxed us because I was teasing Andy and Sbonelo saying they didn’t know the river because they always run over Burma Road. I deliberately let them go into Island Rapid first, thinking they might make a mistake, but it turns out it was us who didn’t come out of it.”The incident that ruled them out followed a frustrating first day, which they completed with a badly broken nose of their boat after a collision with Len Jenkins’s craft in Mission Rapid right at the start of the race.Thrilling women’s raceThe thrilling women’s race was won by Abby Adie and Anna Adamova over the gutsy Hillary Bruss and Alex Adie, with the impressive juniors Jenna Ward and Kerry Segal in third. Adie and Adamova finished an impressive 16th overall.“We had around a-minute-and-a-half in the bank after day one, but we knew that Hillary [Bruss] and Alex [Adie] would shoot everything to try and make up time, so we knew that we had to go really hard. To finish with a seven-minute lead in the end was really encouraging,” said Abby Adie.The result was vital to the crew, which has dreams of winning the Dusi in February, because Adamova now flies back to her home in the Czech Republic where she is committed to top level cross-country skiing races. She will return in mid-January to resume her Dusi preparations.“Day One was a bit hectic,” said Adie. “We got stuck on rocks, and we took a swim at Gauging Weir. Anna also fell on the Second Saddle portage. But at least this was a good taste of what the Dusi will be like, racing at this sort of intensity.“It couldn’t have been any better in terms of final preparations before Anna goes back home,” Adie concluded.The under-23 title went to the Soweto duo of Siseko Ntondini and Thando Ngamlana, who held off Murray Starr and Gavin Shuter, while the juniors’ race was won by the Michaelhouse crew of Patch Dillon and his under-16 partner Alan Houston.RESULTSMENAndy Birkett/Sbonelo Zondi 4:06:34Cam Schoeman/Jakub Adam 4:10:20Lance Kime/Thulani Mbanjwa 4:11:03David Chaplin/Mark Mulder 4:20:15Jacques Theron/Shaun Griffin 4:22:31Siseko Ntondini/Thando Ngamlana 4:22:32Murray Starr/Gavin Shuter 4:26:44Ben Biggs/Karl Folscher 4:26:47Josh Kippen/Andrew Adie 4:30:49Kwanda Mhlope/Zonele Nzuza 4:32:55WomenAbby Adie/Anna Adamova 4:40:12Hillary Bruss/Alex Adie 4:47:35Jenna Ward/Kerry Segal 5:02:38Debbie Germiquet/Carmen Donald 5:03:19Jordan Peek/Brittany Petersen 5:05:45SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
