Overlooking a broad valley with distant views of rural Canada, this house stretches along the crest of a narrow ridge surrounded by evergreen and hardwood forest. The retreat was conceived as a place for year round recreation as well as quiet solitude.

The stone core, punctuated by two large fireplace masses, organizes the spaces, with primary circulation along the south face of the stone. Gaps in the stone core provide access to each of the living spaces, while the core itself houses bathrooms, closets and other support spaces. Anchored to the south by the stone mass, the living spaces extend north onto a wood deck overlooking the steep slope with tall walls of glass blurring the boundary between inside and out. Save this picture!© Nic LehouxThe master suite opens to the north and west, providing views through the forest to a secluded stone fire square for evening gathering. Three rows of rigorously detailed steel structure provide the framework for the Douglas fir rafters and single slope metal roof. The long south roof overhang provides shading in the summer, while the low winter sun warms the stone bar. The roof over the living spaces projects upwards and outwards, heightening one’s awareness of the sunlit view to the north. Light monitors are clipped to the face of both chimneys, washing the fireplaces with natural light. Additional free standing roof monitors provide light to spaces within a stone core. Both clear and translucent glass enclose the south wall, providing a play of light and space experienced along the circulation spine.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Une nouvelle étude conclut que Xlear élimine et/ou désactive le SRAS-CoV-2 ; Efficacité contre les nouveaux variants WhatsApp Facebookcenter_img Previous articleISACA publica novo relatório sobre tendências, obstáculos e previsões em matéria de privacidade às vésperas do Dia da Privacidade de DadosNext articleCORRECTING and REPLACING Expansion of JM Search Consumer Practice Digital AIM Web Support Pinterest EVANSTON, Illinois–(BUSINESS WIRE)–janv. 26, 2021– Une nouvelle étude in vitro réalisée en collaboration, par l’Université d’État de l’Utah et l’Université Northwestern, révèle que les composants du Xlear (extrait de pépins de pamplemousse et xylitol) éliminent de manière significative le SRAS-CoV-2, virus responsable de la COVID-19. La composante d’imagerie de l’étude de recherche a été réalisée dans les installations de BioCryo au centre NUANCE de l’Université Northwestern. Ce communiqué de presse contient des éléments multimédias. Voir le communiqué complet ici : https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210126005955/fr/ Using electron microscopy, we have visual evidence showing that xylitol and grapefruit seed extract (GSE) counters the virus. The GSE kills the virus, while the xylitol prevents the virus from attaching to the cell walls. The image shows SARS-CoV-2 viruses outside the cell and never attached, thereby preventing infection (Photo: Business Wire) L’étude a testé les titres du virus SRAS-CoV-2 et la Valeur de réduction logarithmique (LRV), en réponse à une seule concentration de spray nasal Xlear. Selon les résultats obtenus, et « Après un temps de contact de 25 minutes, le spray nasal a réduit le virus de 4,2 à 1,7 log10 DICC50 par 0,1 ml, une réduction statistiquement significative (P < 0,001) de 2,5 log10 DICC50 ». L’étude menée par Northwestern et l’État de l’Utah est la plus récente parmi toute une série d’études, et parvient à la conclusion que Xlear est efficace contre le SRAS-CoV-2. Ces travaux apportent par ailleurs de nouveaux éléments sur deux points essentiels : « Premièrement, nous concluons qu’en plus de lutter contre le SRAS-CoV-2, Xlear semble être efficace pour empêcher la propagation des futurs virus H1N1, notamment les variants émergents du SRAS-CoV-2, et d’autres épidémies virales. Cela est d’autant plus essentiel que nous sommes aujourd’hui confrontés à des variants plus transmissibles », a déclaré le professeur Mark Cannon, de la Faculté de médecine de Feinberg à l’Université Northwestern. « D’autre part, l’utilisation de la microscopie électronique nous a permis d’obtenir des preuves visuelles montrant que le xylitol et le GSE neutralisaient le virus. Le GSE tue le virus, tandis que le xylitol empêche le virus de se fixer aux parois cellulaires. L’image (ci-jointe) montre des virus SRAS-CoV-2 à l’extérieur de la cellule et jamais attachés, ce qui empêche l’infection », a ajouté le Dr Cannon. L’étude postule que le xylitol agit comme une cible leurre pour le SRAS-CoV-2, empêchant le virus de se fixer sur la paroi cellulaire. L’étude collaborative conclut : « En raison de l’absence de facteur de risque lié à l’utilisation de la thérapie combinée X/GSE, et de la disponibilité du spray nasal [Xlear] sans ordonnance, ajoutées au fait que [Xlear] permet un port du masque confortable à long terme, l’adoption de cette thérapie antivirale préventive devrait être encouragée. » Étude complète : https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.12.02.408575v3.full Pour en savoir plus sur Xlear (notamment où l’obtenir), rendez-vous sur : https://xlear.com/ Le texte du communiqué issu d’une traduction ne doit d’aucune manière être considéré comme officiel.

USS Helena Returns to Norfolk

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USS Helena Returns to Norfolk Share this article View post tag: USS View post tag: News by topic October 16, 2013 The Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Helena (SSN 725) returned to its homeport at Naval Station Norfolk from a regularly scheduled deployment, Oct. 15.Under the command of Cmdr. Jeffrey E. Lamphear, the submarine is returning from the European Command, Central Command and Pacific Command Areas of Responsibility, where it executed the nation’s maritime strategy in supporting national security interests and maritime security operations.“Congratulations to the fine crew of USS Helena for an exceptional deployment,” said Vice Adm. Michael Connor, commander, Submarine Forces. “I could not be more pleased with Helena’s superb execution of missions vital to national security in the Central Command and other areas of operation. Cmdr. Lamphear’s crew demonstrated outstanding determination, agility and resiliency. Helena’s unflinching ability to respond to all tasking was a true test of a well-prepared high performance warship. Welcome back home to well-deserved reunion with family and friends. A grateful nation is thankful for the sacrifices made by the Helena crew. You set the example for the fleet – well done!”Lamphear expanded on the submarine’s mission accomplishment during the deployment.“Our operations spanned three gulfs, two seas and two oceans while conducting exercises with coalition partners and other U.S. forces,” said Lamphear. “Our operations supported multinational, U.S. national and theater strategic and tactical objectives. The operations demonstrated the U.S submarine force’s ability to maintain an extended presence and execute any of our multiple missions, while remaining undetected in any area accessible from the world’s oceans.”During the deployment Helena steamed more than 50,000 nautical miles, which is equivalent to circumnavigating the Earth twice along the equator. They did get the opportunity to enjoy some down time.“We were able to conduct port visits in Bahrain, Diego Garcia, Greece, Spain, and the United Arab Emirates,” said Lamphear. “We had an opportunity to experience different cultures and enjoy the different cuisines each presented. While in port the crew was outstanding ambassadors for the United States and while at sea their performance was even more outstanding.“The Helena crew demonstrated the high level of moral, professionalism, and technical and tactical excellence that characterizes the U.S. submarine force. Operating in some of the most navigationally-constrained areas with the highest shipping densities in the world, they demonstrated our ability to execute multiple missions in seas and oceans spanning the globe. Also, they demonstrated the force’s flexibility by planning and executing a complex mission we did not specifically plan for and in an area we did not plan to go. We overcame hardships, material failures, and challenging environments to execute our missions, further demonstrating the submarine force’s endurance by operating at sea for long periods without external material support.“There were also some significant personal achievements during the deployment. Sixteen enlisted and three officers earned their submarine warfare qualifications, can wear the coveted and elite dolphins. In addition, we had 25 junior enlisted, six chief petty officers, and seven officers promoted or advanced to their current ranks. I could not be prouder of their accomplishments.”Despite all the professional and personal achievements, they are glad to be returning home.“We are very happy to be back in Norfolk with our friends and loved ones,” said Lamphear. “We will enjoy a very well-deserved break and the quality time we will be able to spend with our families. Afterwards, we will be back to work training new crew members and ensuring Helena is in top material condition to maintain our readiness for deployment worldwide in supporting our country’s defense.”Fast-attack submarines like Helena have multi-faceted missions. They use their stealth, persistence, agility and firepower to deploy and support special force operations, disrupt and destroy an adversary’s military and economic operations at sea, provide early strike from close proximity, and ensure undersea superiority.Helena is the 38th Los Angeles-class attack submarine and fourth ship to bear the name of the capital city, Helena, Mont. The submarine was built by the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics Corporation, Groton, Conn., and commissioned July 11, 1987. The 360-foot ship has a current crew compliment of 15 officers and 129 enlisted Sailors, and displaces more than 7,100 tons of water.[mappress]Press Release, October 16, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: Norfolk View post tag: Helena USS Helena Returns to Norfolk Training & Education View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: Defense View post tag: Returns View post tag: Defencelast_img read more

USS Germantown Takes Part in Keen Sword Ex

first_img View post tag: Naval The amphibious dock landing ship, USS Germantown (LSD 42) and the 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion (AAB), 2nd Marine Division (MARDIV), operated with Japanese Self Defense Forces (JSDF) during exercise Keen Sword, Nov. 11-12.Keen Sword is a bilateral amphibious training exercise conducted with JSDF designed to increase combat readiness and interoperability.This portion of the exercise kicked off with service members from JSDF being flown over on a Japanese Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) CH-47 Chinook, for a tour of Germantown. This allowed Sailors and Marines to engage with members of JSDF and show them a variety of the ship’s systems and capabilities. This included a tour of the well deck, the weapons systems, the bridge, the boat deck and the wardroom.The main goal of Germantown’s participation with JSDF is to practice tactics, techniques and procedures with Japanese forces to strengthen amphibious warfare and to help the JSDF build their developing amphibious forces.The final exercise of the day was a simulated MEDEVAC drill that included a CH-47 Chinook helicopter landing on the flight deck with two patients that had simulated injuries.Keen Sword is the latest in a series of joint exercises since 1986 between the U.S. military and JSDF to help enhance cooperation and unity between the two countries in the 7th Fleet Area of Responsibility.Keen Sword will run until Nov. 19, and will include approximately 11,000 U.S. personnel and will continue to take place in a variety of locations throughout Japan, Okinawa and the waters surrounding Japan.[mappress mapid=”14449″]Press release,.
