Queens Domain is located on Melbourne’s Queens Road. Queens Road together with St Kilda Road are Melbourne’s preeminent residential boulevards lined by buildings from various eras and different styles. When Queens Road is viewed from Albert Park, one can see a narrative of Melbourne’s architectural history emerge. Amongst them are some proud contributions by Frederick Romberg a renowned Modernist architect. The Stanhill and Newborn Flats are beautiful functionalist buildings with sweeping open balconies and fine glass detailing. Queens Domain takes up the next thread in this story, re-interpreting existing elements, whilst embracing design and construction techniques of our time.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Tom BlachfordSave this picture!Typical floor planSave this picture!© Tom BlachfordThe setback from Queens Road allows for the creation of a front yard for residents to enjoy. The apartments feature deep balconies and the curved form of the tower provides shading, particularly on the west. The roof deck includes barbeque areas enclosed within a tall glazed balustrade. This provides breathtaking panoramic views while ensuring protection against wind. As a prominent part of the urban fabric of Queens Road, Queens Domain respects the established setbacks and contours of the skyline defining the area. The outline of the building has been softened by using materials with a range of textures and degrees of transparency, as well as curved balcony and façade elements. Queens Domain is a building that balances sculpture and structure. It has a contemporary design, yet it’s respectful of its surrounds and place in history. Its elegant form will add to the Queens Road precinct and stand as an important part of Melbourne’s architectural story.Save this picture!© Tom BlachfordSave this picture!© Tom BlachfordProject gallerySee allShow lessChongqing Vanke Forest Park Sales Gallery / LWK + PARTNERSSelected ProjectsAD Classics: Berlin Philharmonic / Hans ScharounArchitecture ClassicsProject locationAddress:12 Queens Rd, Melbourne VIC 3004, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

U.S., Israel escalate war on Syria

first_imgIsraeli F-16 fighter jet crashes under Syrian anti-aircraft fire.Feb. 11 — In the past week, the U.S. military opened a new bombing attack on forces loyal to the government in Damascus and the Israeli Air Force targeted what it called “Iranian bases” in Syria with a massive attack. These assaults raise the possibility of another chapter to the U.S.-NATO-Israeli aggression against Syria, which has been going on for nearly seven years.The Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad, along with its allies Russia, Hezbollah and Iran, has been gaining the upper hand against the many-sided imperialist intervention that has turned more than half of Syria’s 25 million people into external and internal refugees and killed at least 220,000 of them.An Israeli F-16 flying a raid on alleged drone bases in central Syria was shot down by the Syrian Air Defense Force. According to Reuters of Feb. 10, quoting a former commander of Israel’s air force, this was the first time an Israeli F-16 had been shot down since the 1980s.Israeli planes frequently attack targets in Syria. A spokesperson for the Lebanese-based liberation organization, Hezbollah, said in the same report that the shootdown marked “the start of a new strategic phase” to limit Israel’s ability to enter Syrian airspace. Demonstrators in Damascus handed out sweets because they were so thrilled at this sign of Syria’s ability to punish the Israeli killing machine.Currently, there are about 2,000 U.S. troops inside Syria. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said the U.S. intervention has no end date and the size of the U.S. force will increase.That’s the reason Israel stepped up its air attacks on Feb. 10, focusing on what it called “Iranian bases,” and why the United States has announced it will maintain and increase its troop levels in Syria.Also on Feb. 10, according to the Israeli paper Haaretz, Kurdish fighters backed and armed by the U.S. shot down a Turkish attack helicopter. NATO-member Turkey, whose President Recep Tayyip Erdogan describes the YPG (People’s Protection Units) as terrorists, is carrying out an offensive directed at the Kurdish-majority town of Afrin in Syria.Earlier in the week, a Russian SU-25 was shot down in Idlib province, relatively close to the Turkish border, by a reactionary Islamist group, using U.S. weapons.The same day, the headquarters of a group of so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces,” a joint Arab and Kurdish force backed by the U.S., came under attack. It appears that U.S. advisers were working there.  According to U.S. Army Col. Thomas Veale, a spokesperson for the U.S.-led coalition, about 500 troops, using artillery, mortars and Russian-made tanks, were involved in the attack.The U.S. claimed 100 of the attackers were killed in the strikes, which were countered by U.S. F-22 stealth jets, F-15 fighters and MQ-9 drones, as well as a U.S. High Mobility Artillery Rocket System.The Syrian state news agency, SANA, described the action as “an aggression” by the coalition against “popular forces” that were fighting the Islamic State group and the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces. SANA said that  “an aggression” by the coalition against “popular forces” that were fighting the Islamic State group and the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.Whatever the differences in goals and tactics of the imperialist and reactionary militaries intervening against Syria’s people — which include the U.S., its European NATO imperialist allies, Turkey, Israel and various reactionary sectarian militias — the people of Syria have the right to fight and to make their own alliances to preserve their independence and national sovereignty against any and all of these forces.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In the public reprimand, the Big 12 commissioner said there’s no ban on fans coming on field, but teams are expected to provide adequate safety for athletes, coaches and officials.  “That expectation includes providing safe passage from the playing field to the locker room, and protection of the visiting team bench area.”  Big 12 Conference Commissioner Bob Bowlsby Horned Frog fans weren’t the only ones to celebrate on field Saturday. The Big 12 also hit Kansas State, which beat No. 4 Oklahoma, with a reprimand and $25,000 fine; Kansas, which beat Texas Tech, just got a scolding. The conference said that the schools were fined in accordance with its “principles and standards of sportsmanship,” which include respect, responsibility, fairness, honesty, integrity and good citizenship.

Teen jailed after calling 911 on himself to demand his own arrest for getting drunk at home

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(VAN BUREN, Arkansas) — Police in Van Buren, Arkansas are still scratching their heads over one of the most unusual arrests they said they have made in years.On Thursday night, police received a call from an 18-year-old reporting underage drinking in his home – by him.“Basically he, I guess, was intoxicated and called our office and said he was underage and drinking and he wanted to go to jail,” Van Buren Police Department Sergeant Jonathan Wear told ABC News in a telephone interview.“At first the [responding] officers were a little confused,” he said. “They went to make contact and when they went to the house this guy — he actually came out of the apartment with his hands up. At that time, the officers didn’t know it was him who called – they thought it was a neighbor. The officers asked what was going on and he admitted to calling.”“The officers wanted to give him a chance so they said, you know, ‘Look, just stay in your apartment and don’t drink, and you can go back into your house,’ but I guess he wasn’t good with that,” Wear explained. “They actually gave him a chance to go back inside and sober up. But he refused. He said, ‘I really need to go to jail.’” Wear said the young man told officers he had been drinking after having a bad day.He said that Van Buren police officers still can’t figure out what prompted the young man to self-confess and turn himself in.“There’s a little bit of a buzz around here,” Wear said. “The officers at the police department are talking about it because it’s just so unusual.” “He was not very high,” Wear said.“It wasn’t like he was just wasted or anything. He was not bad at all. The officers told him that ‘in your house [underage drinking is] not an issue. But with him refusing to go back in, the officers couldn’t leave him wandering around outside, so they arrested him and took him in.”The young man was charged with public intoxication, but the mystery behind his self-confession remains.On the ride to the station, “there wasn’t any real conversation,” Wear said.By Arkansas state law, individuals arrested for public intoxication must remain locked up for at least six hours.Wear said the young man was locked up for six hours and then released on a “small” bond.“It was a very strange arrest.”Wear declined to provide the teenager’s name.“We are not releasing his name,” the sergeant said. “We don’t want to cause him too much trouble.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Employee fired after hanging effigy of Kentucky governor at protest

first_imgThis is disgusting and I condemn it wholeheartedly. The words of John Wilkes Booth have no place in the Party of Lincoln. https://t.co/mILfSMVEHy— KY Sec. of State Michael Adams (@KYSecState) May 24, 2020Adams noted that John Wilkes Booth shouted the phrase “Sec Semper Tyrannis” when he assassinated President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. He said those words “have no place in the Party of Lincoln.”The Kentucky House Democrats issued a joint statement deploring the protesters and calling their actions “beyond reprehensible.”“Doing this in front of our Capitol, just a short walk from where the Governor, First Lady, and their two young children live, is an act that reeks of hate and intimidation and does nothing but undermine our leading work to battle this deadly disease and restore our economy safely,” the Kentucky House Democrats’ statement reads. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved RiverNorthPhotography/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(FRANKFORT, Ky.) — Democratic and Republican leaders denounced gun rights supporters for hanging an effigy of Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear from a tree outside the state capitol building during a Memorial Day weekend demonstration.The symbolic lynching occurred on Sunday at a rally by gun rights groups that was initially organized to celebrate Second Amendment freedoms to bear arms. But as the rally in Frankfort went on, it turned into a protest against Beshear’s coronavirus-prompted stay-at-home orders.As country singer Lee Greenwood’s hit song “God Bless the U.S.A.” played in the background, a demonstrator wearing camouflage pants and what appeared to be a holstered handgun strung a rope over a tree limb and with the help of another man hoisted the effigy bearing a picture of Beshear and a handwritten sign tacked to it reading, “Sec Semper Tyrannis,” a Latin phrase meaning “Thus always to tyrants.”Video of the episode, taken by a reporter from the Courier-Journal newspaper of Louisville, showed at least one child standing next to a baby carriage as she watched the adults hang the Beshear effigy.At least one unnamed member of the group was fired from their job at Neil Huffman Auto Group on Tuesday, according to a statement.“The Neil Huffman Auto Group does not condone threats of violence in any form, whether they be a call to action or an implied threat,” Shannon Huffman, the company’s human resources manager said. “Following an internal investigation on this matter, the employee was terminated. There is no place for hate or intolerance at any of our dealerships.”At a press conference Wednesday, Beshear called it “an act intended to create fear and terror.”While the group Take Back Kentucky posted a notice on its Facebook page advising members of protests at the capitol building on Saturday and Sunday, a spokesman for the group denied members were involved in organizing or sponsoring the event.“We notified our members that there was going to be two separate events and to let people take their choice to go to whichever one they wanted to. We were in no way involved with the planning of it, the organization of it and we had no knowledge of what was going to take place,” Richard Treitz, moderator of Take Back Kentucky, told ABC News.“We believe in the Constitution. We believe in the Second Amendment,” Treitz said. “We’re not in favor of these lunatic activities like an effigy and we absolutely condemn things like banging on the windows of the Governor’s Mansion.”On the group’s Facebook page, it informed its members that “we will have guest speakers to talk about the virus, and how this shutdown will not only wreak havoc with the economy over the next several years, but also threaten our fundamental freedoms and the character of America for generations.”The Courier-Journal reported that the effigy hanging took place outside the state capitol building after about 100 demonstrators marched to the Governor’s Mansion yelling for Beshear to come out.“Come out, Andy!” protesters chanted.It was not clear if Beshear was home at the time. The governor, a Democrat, has yet to issue a response to the protest.As images and video of the effigy being strung up went viral, political leaders from both sides of the aisle condemned the act.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, issued statement calling the incident “unacceptable” and saying “there is no place for hate in Kentucky.”Kentucky Secretary of State Michael G. Adams, a Republican, took to Twitter to denounce the incident.“This is disgusting and I condemn it wholeheartedly,” Adams wrote.last_img read more
