Save this picture!Floor PlanThe wrap-around balcony encourages the occupants to step outside and enjoy the natural view of the Laurentians. Indoors, they continue to breathe easy in the completely open-concept main floor. The sense of peace comes from a combination of the open floor plan and the 15’ ceilings above the living and lounge space. The floor to ceiling black aluminum windows allow light to completely flood the social spaces of the main floor and highlight the elegantly simple furnishings of the home. The main floor boasts primarily white furnishings, accented with natural wooden and sandy tones that complement the natural forest outside.

TV journalist accused of attacking police in Guatemala

first_imgNews GuatemalaAmericas January 7, 2021 Find out more GuatemalaAmericas News Help by sharing this information to go further News Dadiana Cabrera, a journalist with Guatevisión TV, is being prosecuted on an absurd charge of using violence against the police.The case dates back to 27 February, when police handcuffed Cabrera for no apparent reason during an identity check in Guatemala City. A friend accompanying her was beaten by eight policemen after he tried to summon a police inspection vehicle, while Cabrera was taken to a police station and charged with “attacking authority.”A hearing was due to have been held yesterday at which the prosecutor’s office wanted to use a procedure that was supposed to speed up the case and avoid the usual drawn-out trial.But Cabrera rejected this option, resulting in a postponement until 24 June, when she will be required to demonstrate her innocence and the prosecution will not be required to prove her guilt.“This procedure poses a very disturbing risk of a large fine or even detention for Cabrera, who is accused of carrying out the very attack of which she was the victim,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “The case is all the more worrying because the burden of proof has been reversed and she does not benefit from the presumption of innocence. The policemen involved in this case should be thoroughly investigated without delay, in order to shed light on this apparent abuse of authority.”The attack on Cabrera is symptomatic of the violence that journalists face in Guatemala. The creation of a proper mechanism for protecting journalists is one of the main recommendations of the April 2014 report on Guatemala by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.The authorities have repeatedly pledged to adopt effective security measures for journalists but how can their promises be taken seriously when their hostility towards journalists keeps on growing?El Periódico editor José Ruben Zamora is still facing charges on 13 counts as a result of complaints brought by President Otto Pérez Molina and Vice-President Roxana Baldetti, which – contrary to their declared intention – they have not withdrawn.Guatemala is ranked 125th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Investigation continues into oil spill following overturning of truck at Barnesmore Gap

first_imgHomepage BannerNews WhatsApp Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA An investigation is continuing into a vegetable oil spill into the Lowerymore River.At approximately 3:30pm on Wednesday an articulated truck transporting vegetable oil for reprocessing left the road on the N15 as it left Barnesmore Gap.The vehicle landed on its side and slid into a roadside drain, shedding its load of vegetable oil, which was packaged in plastic buckets, drums and 1 tonne IBC’s. The truck landed on the entrance to a roadside culvert conveying a small mountain stream into the Lowerymore river.Immediately following the accident, an unknown quantity of vegetable oil percolated slowly through the load into the culvert and river.Following the incident, Donegal County Council engaged 2 private contractors to assist with the clean-up operation, which was headed up by a specialist pollution response and remediation company engaged by the insurers of company who owned the material spilt.Staff from Inland Fisheries Ireland were involved in deploying and overseeing the deployment of booms in the river to catch any material released downstream and in monitoring its impact. No fish mortalities were reported.Council staff and the various specialist contractors worked quickly to contain the oil emerging through the culvert from the vehicle’s load and continued through to the early hours of the morning to unload the truck, retrieve and collect any vegetable oil released and ensure that only minute traces of the vegetable oil entered the river.The vehicle was lifted and removed at approximately 3am yesterday morning, with the assistance of An Garda Siochana to manage traffic flow, and the clean-up continued until all materials were removed.The operation was concluded yesterday afternoon, although booms remain in place in the Lowerymore river, at a number of strategic locations, to provide continued protection from residual material which may remain lodged in vegetation along the course of the river.The Council say, inspections of the lower reaches of the river indicated that these and all other measures taken have been very effective. There has been no evidence of any traces of the vegetable oil in Lough Eske and the River Eske as it flows out of the lake.The incident has been reported to the Environmental Protection Agency and ongoing monitoring and investigation continues.

An Upper Jurassic methane-seep limestone from the Fossil Bluff Group forearc basin of Alexander Island, Antarctica

first_imgAn anomalous Upper Jurassic limestone bed, 3 m thick, is present within the volcaniclastic infill of a forearc basin, exposed on Alexander Island, Antarctica. The limestone, formally designated the Gateway Pass Limestone Bed, contains laminated crusts and blocks, including hardgrounds, showing radial-fibrous and botryoidal calcite cements. Carbon isotope values are very negative (delta 13 C of -33.5 per thousand to -44.6 per thousand PDB) indicating a methane-oxidation origin for the carbonate. The limestone bed formed around a submarine cold seep in the Antarctic Peninsula forearc basin adjacent to the accretionary prism. In contrast to adjacent nearly barren sea floor the limestone also yields a “benthic island” assemblage containing abundant gastropods and bivalves. The seep is directly comparable to certain Jurassic seeps at the convergent margin of the northeast Pacific, and both are related to subduction at the eastern proto-Pacific margin.last_img read more

Mesozoic-Cenozoic evolution of the North Patagonian Batholith in Aysen, southern Chile

first_imgA detailed Rb-Sr geochronological and geochemical study has been carried out on granitoids of the North Patagonian batholith in Aysén. The results for 25 plutonic bodies reveal a complex age pattern. The principal zones defined are, from west to east: Late Cretaceous (a single 76 Ma pluton), Early Cretaceous (c. 135 Ma), Eocene (c. 45 Ma), and Early Miocene (25-15 Ma), reverting to mid-Cretaceous (120-90 Ma) in the Main Cordillera. The igneous suite is typically metaluminous and calc-alkaline, with hornblende-biotite granodiorite and tonalite dominant, although small bodies of Late Miocene/Pliocene (c. 10-5 Ma) peraluminous leucogranite occur sporadically. Tertiary plutonism extends to gabbroic compositions and is concentrated in the vicinity of the dextral strike-slip Liquine-Ofqui fault zone. The highest initial 87Sr/86Sr ratios (c. 0.7050) occur in the Early Cretaceous group, with a sharp decrease to 0.7034–0.7045 that persists until a Late Miocene reversal to higher values (0.7040–0.7048). These variations are reflected by Nd isotopes, but trends in the ɛSr, v. ɛNd, diagram show that this is not due to contamination from the accretionary complex into which the batholith was emplaced. An origin by melting of mafic crustal underplate and lower crust is suggested for the main magma suite. The discrete episodes of magmatism correlate with significant changes in subduction kinematics.last_img read more

Bootsy Collins Delivers High Praise For Lettuce

first_imgBootsy Collins is a beacon of funk. His work as the bass player for James Brown in the original version of his band The J.B.‘s, and later as the long-time bass player in foundational outfit Parliament-Funkadelic, has led to some of the most important music across the funk spectrum. When you are getting down to “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine” or “One Nation Under A Groove”, you are rocking along to Boosty’s inimitable funk magic.With that in mind, when Bootsy showers praise on another funk band, his suggestion demands attention. When he shouts out our favorite modern funk band Lettuce, it’s cause for celebration! This weekend, when Lettuce stopped by SiriusXM Jam On for an in-studio performance, a fan posted a video of the session in a Facebook group called “Funk”. Bootsy took notice and took the time out of his day to post the video on his personal Facebook page. You can see his post below, and the video that inspired him: a lights-out performance of “Sounds Like A Party To Me” from their 2015 record Crush. It’s always amazing to receive praise from one of your idols. Coming off a successful new EP release, two hot shows in NYC and a kick-ass tour all-around, one can only imagine that all of the members of Lettuce are riding a wave of excitement and positivity right now! In the immortal words of Boosty himself, “Bootsy Baby!”last_img read more
