The project brief was for a tranquil, sustainable and private home filled with natural light, warmth and texture.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathAs privacy and outlook were limited the concept sought to create a captivating internal focus in the form of a central courtyard, providing a strong link between key spaces. In order to maximise natural light and privacy a simple sectional gable shape was extruded through the east-west axis of the house, resulting in a form that efficiently collects rainwater, incorporates sustainable passive systems and emphasises views to distant gum tree canopies.Save this picture!Floor PlanHover House provides the clients and their friends and family with a warm and functional home all year round, adaptable to varying internal and external circumstances. Lovingly detailed concealed sliding doors and timber screens allow for the flexibility of each bedroom wing to be open or closed independently from the main living space, aiding energy efficiency and privacy and varying the character of the house with different configurations. Bedrooms and kitchen areas also capture discrete connections to exterior gardens around the site periphery, complementing the courtyard focus of the living and entry areas.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathInternal concrete blockwork, timber veneer and a polished concrete floor provide cost effective texture and warmth throughout the internal living spaces. The reverse veneer blockwork, insulated concrete slab and fireplace are also effective as thermal mass and, combined with passive ventilation, result in a low energy house which is cost effective to run.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathHover House is a “replicable prototype for cost effective, high-amenity housing” (Nigel Bertram, AIA Victorian Architecture Awards Jury 2014) suitable for other sites where a hostile outlook invites the creation of a meaningful inward focus.Project gallerySee allShow less”Casa Futebol” Proposes a Different Olympic Legacy For Brazil’s StadiumsMiscModern Masters Of Materiality: An Interview With Australia’s Tonkin Zulaikha GreerArticles Share Beattie Consulting Engineers, Andrew Beattie Manufacturers: Barazza, James Hardie CopyAbout this officeBower ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesMount MarthaAustraliaPublished on July 10, 2014Cite: “Hover House / Bower Architecture” 10 Jul 2014.

News March 25, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Jean Dominique murder: Reporters Without Borders outraged by result of investigation News Receive email alerts Dr. Alix Charles, Benjamin Delano, lawyer Ephesien Joassaint, Sen. Toussaint (photo), his bodyguard Franck Joseph and his “right-hand man” Richard Salomon were not charged because, the judge said, “there is not enough clear evidence of their responsibility or complicity in the murder.” The result of the enquiry into the murder of Radio Haiti Inter chief JeanDominique (see photo), delivered on 21 March, does not say who was behindthe crime. This was “simply an insult to all those fighting for justice inHaiti, especially as it comes only a few days before the third anniversaryof his death,” said Reporters Without Borders. An enquiry hampered by many obstaclesThe outspoken Dominique, Haiti’s best-known journalist and political commentator, was killed in the courtyard of his radio station on 3 April 2000. He had criticised all sides – supporters of the former Duvalier family dictatorship, ex-military figures, members of the country’s wealthy families and those he suspected in President Aristide’s Fanmi Lavalas party of wanting to turn the organisation away from its original principles. The murder investigation was assigned in September 2000 to Judge Gassant after his predecessor, Judge Jean-Sénat Fleury, had resigned after receiving threats. Legal sources said on 28 May 2001 that Toussaint had been charged with the murder. Gassant fled to the United States after his mandate expired on 3 January 2002 and was not immediately renewed by Aristide (see photo). He had been repeatedly harassed after indicting Toussaint. Since July last year, the investigation has been in the hands of Judge Saint-Vil.For the past three years, virtually all state institutions have obstructed the murder enquiry. The justice ministry never gave Judge Gassant adequate protection despite threats to him. Police refused to carry our arrest warrants and were accused of handing over leading suspect Rénélus to the mob that lynched him. The senate refused to lift Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity.Dominique’s widow was the target of an apparent attempt to kill her at her home last December 25, in which one of her bodyguards, Maxime Séide, was shot dead. She took the attack as a warning to all those involved in the murder investigation. On 21 February this year, Michèle Montas (see photo) announced the station was going off the air because of many threats to its staff. “Three of our people have already been killed and we don’t want to lose anyone else,” she said. The radio’s journalists and technical staff wrote to the management on 1 February expressing their great concern about many incidents since the beginning of the year. Montas said the station was only closing temporarily and would resume operations when the situation was more secure. “The investigation report is also bad news for all Haitian media that criticise the government,” said the press freedom organisation. “It sends a message to the enemies of press freedom that they have nothing to fear from the judiciary.” President Aristide is on the Reporters Without Borders worldwide list of 41 “predators of press freedom” for giving government cover to those who physically attack and kill journalists.Dominique’s widow, Michèle Montas, who has run his radio station, Radio Haiti Inter, since he was killed, told Reporters Without Borders that the investigation report was “disgraceful” and that she would appeal against it.A report that clears Sen. Toussaint and his associatesJudge Saint-Vil has indicted six people: Dymsley Millien (“Tilou”) for murder and Jeudi Jean Daniel (“Guimy”), Philippe Markington, Ralph Léger, Ralph Joseph and Freud Junior Desmarrates for being accomplices. All are currently in prison.

Jean-Claude Nord, Toussaint’s lawyer, had recommended Joassaint to Lalanne as a lawyer. Joassaint then asked Charles to do the operation. Charles was known to be a friend of Salomon. Toussaint has always denied knowing Lalanne but a witness said Joseph, his bodyguard, had met him.The report said investigators had concluded the murder was planned in the course of several meetings. In November 2001, a second important suspect, Panel Rénélus, was lynched by a mob after being arrested by police. Judge Gassant, who was at the scene, said police handed him over to the mob. A Reporters Without Borders investigation (“Who killed Jean Dominique?”), published a year after the murder, cited Charles, Delano, Joassaint, Salomon and Toussaint in connection with the mysterious death of Jean Wilner Lalanne, who was suspected of being the link between the organisers of the murder and those who carried it out. Lalanne died in June 2000 during an operation for a buttock wound received during his arrest. He was operated on by Dr Charles, an orthopaedic surgeon, helped by Dr Delano, even though he had asked for another surgeon. Charles said he died of a pulmonary embolism, but this was contradicted by an autopsy. Two months later, by the time a new autopsy had been ordered, Lalanne’s body had unaccountably disappeared from the morgue. Follow the news on Haïti News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders said today it was outraged by the just-announced result of the enquiry into the killing of Haiti’s best known journalist, Jean Dominique (see photo), because it only named those who carried out the murder and not those who ordered it.”The authorities are trying to tell us there was nobody behind this crime, just as they did in the killing of journalist Brignol Lindor,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “After three years of investigation, and only a few days before the third anniversary of Dominique’s death on 3 April, the enquiry report is simply an insult to all those fighting for justice in Haiti.”The investigating judge, Bernard Saint-Vil, reportedly sent his 33-page indictment in the case to the state prosecutor on 21 March. “”How can it be that individuals accused by the previous investigating judge, Claudy Gassant (see photo) – people such as Sen. Dany Toussaint and several of his associates – have disappeared from the list of people to be charged with this crime?” asked Ménard. “Nobody is fooled by this result. Ever since President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was re-elected in 2000, his government has been preparing a whitewash of Toussaint.” Judge Gassant was forced to flee abroad after indicting Toussaint, an ally of Aristide, and the Haitian senate rejected the judge’s request for Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity to be lifted so the case against him could proceed. to go further June 11, 2019 Find out more

Nathan Howard/Getty ImagesBY: JOSH MARGOLIN, OLIVIA RUBIN AND LUKE BARR, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Officials in multiple states are taking aggressive steps to protect voters from efforts by militias or other armed groups seeking to congregate near polling places on Election Day, as simmering online activity indicates that some groups are trying to register as campaign poll watchers for Donald Trump‘s campaign.In Michigan, an open carry state, Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on Friday announced a ban on open carry firearms at and near polls.“Michiganders should know that law enforcement across multiple levels is working together to ensure that anyone who wishes to exercise their right to vote in person on Election Day can do so safely and without the threat of intimidation,” said Col. Joe Gasper, the state’s police director.New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal issued a statement, also on Friday, that reiterated guidance for local law enforcement to help protect voters. Poll watchers “may not harass or intimidate voters, engage in electioneering, cause disturbances at polling places or challenge voters based on their race or ethnicity or how they are expected to vote,” the statement said.Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo said at a Thursday press conference that she’s “putting security provisions in place” to assure voters “there’s no place for violence, there’s no place for threats.”The measures come as online accounts tied to neo-Nazi sympathizers and “alt-right” groups such as the Proud Boys have been generating posts that encourage supporters to join the campaign’s Election Day operations, according to two new reports this week. That includes sending out links to poll-watching registration sites for the Trump campaign’s so-called Army for Trump, an effort working to recruit thousands of supports to sign up as poll watchers for the campaign on Election Day.In one instance, a Proud Boys-affiliated user, in a group that claimed to circulate to 1,800 people affiliated with the Proud Boys, shared the link to sign up, writing that Democrats “don’t want us Republicans to be in their polls,” according to the report from SITE Intelligence Group, a non-governmental agency group that tracks potential security threats online, that was released on Tuesday. A separate SITE report released on Thursday said a link was shared within a neo-Nazi channel that claims to have about 5,000 members.“The call to watch the polls, initially made by President Trump himself in the first presidential debate, has been answered by several far-right groups,” the SITE report said.Samantha Zager, deputy national press secretary for the Trump campaign, said in a statement to ABC News on Friday that the president “has unequivocally denounced hate groups by name on numerous occasions but the media refuses to accurately cover it because that would mean the end of a Democrat Party talking point.”Zager did not reject these groups’ apparent interest in joining the campaign’s poll watching team when specifically asked by ABC News.Poll watchers are legal under strict rules that vary by state. In most states, both parties are permitted to have trained representatives observe the voting process, relay information back to their parties, and watch for irregularities. They are not supposed to interfere with voting aside from reporting issues through official channels.ABC News previously has obtained videos of Trump campaign poll watcher training sessions, held in multiple battleground states, in which attendees explicitly were told to avoid interacting with voters.The SITE report said efforts by the Proud Boys or similar groups to volunteer for Trump “have so far not been followed with direct threats of voter suppression,” but it could be “inferred” that their “presence at election locations as ‘poll watchers’ would potentially serve to intimidate, pressure and harass oppositional voters.”“Some of these groups will be listening to his false claims of fraud, and you put that in combination with his refusal to condemn white supremacists and civil unrest — it really is a very thinly veiled call for his most militant supporters to go to the polls,” Mary McCord, a longtime national security official and Georgetown University Law professor, previously told ABC News.Previously, at a debate, Trump urged his backers to “watch very carefully” at polls on Election Day, heightening already high political tensions. He later backtracked, saying at a Thursday town hall event, “I denounce white supremacy.”Experts have told ABC News they’re concerned over the Trump campaign’s use of the word “Army” in recruiting poll watchers.“An ‘army’ doesn’t sound like people just there to observe,” said Sean Morales-Doyle, deputy director of voting rights and election programs at the Brennan Center for Justice. “An ‘army’ sounds like people there to engage in war with the enemy.”ABC News’ Will Steakin contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

It is operated by Great Eastern Group for the Office of Naval Research.Austal’s Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Bellamy, said the contract was in line with key company strategies to expand its defence and vessel support businesses.“This contract is further recognition from the defence community that our core skills add value in the in-service support phase. It shows we can successfully grow our international support business, and leverage our defence contracting credentials beyond new ship construction, in line with our strategy,” he said.Austal currently provides in-service support to defence vessels in Australia, Oman, Trinidad and Tobago and the United States.“We are very pleased to be teaming with the professionals from Austal. The ability to harness the strengths of both companies in a cooperative effort will be fundamental to securing future opportunities,” said Vic Rhoades, director and general manager of BAE Systems Southeast Shipyards Alabama.Joe Rella, President and Chief Operating Officer of Austal USA said, “We are excited to work with our neighbours at BAE Systems and bring more business to Mobile, Alabama.”Austal’s contract value is approximately US$1.5 million dollars, and work is expected to extend into the first quarter of 2012.Earlier this week Austal’s US operation held a keel-laying ceremony for the second of seven 103 metre Joint High Speed Vessels it is contracted to design and build for the US Navy.

This ship is affiliated to the Borough of Sefton and was commissioned in Liverpool in March 2004.Mersey is taking part in a number of events during the celebrations including a 10th birthday Ball and Charity Auction attended by the ship’s company, to be held at Anfield on Friday night.The ship’s commanding officer, Lieutenant Commander Sarah Oakley – one of just two serving female ship’s ‘captains’ – will host a reception onboard for invited local dignitaries and other guests, as well as providing a number of tours and visits throughout her stay, in particular for local cadet groups from Bollington and Macclesfield, Bebington and Connah’s Quay.Due to the short period she will be alongside and the location of her berth, all of these events will be via private invitation only and unforatunately the ship will not be open for public tours on this occasion.The purpose of this visit is to continue to strengthen the close links the ship shares with the Borough of Sefton, as well as to mark the significant milestone of 10 years’ service.During this time, HMS Mersey has steamed a total of 391,653 nautical miles and spent nearly 50,000 hours at sea.This equates to 268 circumnavigations of the British Isles, her primary operating waters, and over 2066 days at sea. She has also been fortunate to visit her affiliated region 14 times since her first visit.As a member of the Fishery Protection Squadron, the oldest Squadron in the Royal Navy, HMS Mersey spends her time patrolling UK waters guarding our national interests in home waters as well as enforcing EU fishery legislation within UK controlled and adjacent waters.With a total ship’s company of around 45, a three watch system is used to rotate the crew, ensuring that the ship is able to remain at sea for in excess of 300 days in each year, protecting Britain’s interests at home.Lt Cdr Oakley said:“I am very much looking forward to bringing HMS Mersey to Liverpool on the occasion of the ship’s 10th birthday.“It is an ideal opportunity to visit our affiliates in Sefton, and to share the celebration with the ship’s sponsor, Mrs Jennie Reeve, the sea cadet unit TS Ardent and our affiliated Livery Company, the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators.“I hope to meet many local people during our visit, from youth groups, the RNA, churches and local charities, to re-affirm the strength of our affiliation.”[mappress]Press Release, July 26, 2013; Image: Royal Navy
