Built in earth tones, its windows reflect the sky and river images.

It also links the low horizon of residential structures to the east with the more modern commercial buildings to the west.

Its multiple layers blur the distinction between interior and exterior, both visually and experientially. The resulting texture also provides shade to all units from the eastern sun.

This building, while modern in design, is based on shapes that reflect the history, traditions and landscape of Greater Cincinnati, yet calls to mind the possibilities that lay ahead. The Ascent is less a structure than a living, breathing piece of art that stirs the soul and lifts the spirit. The Ascent will provide a lifestyle unlike any other in Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana. It is a building that will inspire a region. It is a call to greatness.”Save this picture!© CorporexProject gallerySee allShow lessUniversity Center Expansion Tower / Holzman Moss BottinoArticlesLawrence Israel Prize Awarded to David RockwellArticlesProject locationAddress:John A.

Scientists are racing against time to save Scarlet, an ailing, 3-year-old killer whale that has gone missing

first_imgKOMO/ABC News(NEW YORK) — Scientists and researchers are in a race against time, struggling to save an ailing 3-year-old killer whale named Scarlet which has gone missing.The youngest of the group, the southern resident killer whale that’s known to marine scientists as J50 hasn’t been seen for days, and even before she vanished, experts were worried about her deteriorating health.“It is very possible that she has succumbed at this point and that we may never see her again,” Teri Rowles, marine mammal health and stranding coordinator for National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries, told journalists during a press phone briefing Tuesday.Scarlet is the youngest southern resident killer whale among a group of 75 that feed in the waters off of Alaska and northern California, but when scientists were last able to evaluate her condition, she was underweight and had an infection, Rowles said during the press call. NOAA and the Center for Whale Research cite multiple factors threatening the killer whales, including a diminishing Chinook salmon population — which is their preferred fish — as well as increased pollution, water traffic, and increased noise — which stresses out the whales and interferes their ability to reproduce. There are now only 75 southern resident killer whales that live in the waters along the U.S. west coast from Alaska to California, according to Ken Balcomb of the Center for Whale Research. Those numbers have remained stagnant, Balcomb said. Rather than producing their average six to nine offspring per year, the group of 75 has not produced any offspring in the last three years. That changed in late July, when a female member of the group — known as J35, or Tahlequah — gave birth to a calf, but the baby whale only lived for 30 minutes. In a remarkable demonstration of maternal affection viewed around the world, 30-year-old Tahlequah, went into mourning, sometimes carrying the dead baby calf on her back for hundreds of miles over the course of at least 10 days.NOAA has a plan to try and nurse Scarlet back to health, but it’s a complicated one that depends on her condition. NOAA Fisheries and partner organizations are exploring options ranging from no intervention to providing medical treatment, potentially delivered inside a live Chinook salmon — which would then be fed to Scarlet. This tactic has never before been attempted in the wild, NOAA fisheries experts wrote on the agency’s website. Experts might also have to inject Scarlet with either a dart gun or a pole that contains antibiotics and other medications, or feed the whale’s medicine to the live Chinook salmon and then release the salmon near Scarlet in hopes that she would eat the fish.“What they’re working on this morning…to determine which method they’re going to use, [is] based on the dose that they have configured for her,” Rowles told ABC News on Tuesday.Part of the challenge of using the pole would be that marine mammal experts would have to be in very close proximity to the animal.“That requires a closer approach,” Rowles said of the pole option.Rowles said that while the research boats are out in the water searching for Scarlet, they have to keep a distance at least 200 yards to make sure that they don’t further stress the sick, young whale or other whales.If they choose to use medicated fish as part of the treatment plan, the boat containing the Chinook salmon will be placed in front of J50, Rolwes said.“The fish would be distributed into the water in front of her,” she said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

STAKES WINNING PATH OF DAVID & UPSTARTS TIZ A BILLY, TRUE BRILLIANCE, HOT ORE, HE’S A TIGER & IRON ROB ALL PROMINENT IN SUNDAY’S $75,000 BAFFLE STAKES AT 6 ½ FURLONGS DOWN HILLSIDE TURF

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 18, 2016)–Stakes winning Path of David and talented upstarts Tiz a Billy, True Brilliance, Hot Ore, He’s a Tiger and Iron Rob all loom prominently as a half dozen 3-year-olds go    6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in Sunday’s $75,000 Baffle Stakes.Trained by Kristin Mulhall, Path of David rallied from off the pace to win the one mile turf Eddie Logan Stakes here on Dec. 31 and was subsequently well beaten by top Derby hopeful Mor Spirit in the Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Robert B. Lewis Stakes on Feb. 6.The return to turf and massive drop in class should benefit Path of David, a Kentucky-bred gelding by the Gone West stallion, Istan. Owned by Ike and Dawn Thrash and Janet Alley, Path of David broke his maiden three starts back going one mile on turf at Del Mar Nov. 28, and will hope to be flying the final eighth of a mile in his first try down Santa Anita’s unique hillside layout. With both of his lifetime wins coming on turf, he’s made seven overall starts and has earnings of $90,900.Tiz a Billy, who is trained by Brian Koriner, comes off a scintillating 6 ½ length maiden special weight win over the course at 1-2, and need only run back to that race to have a huge chance in the Baffle. Blessed with an abundance of speed, Tiz a Billy rated well in third position after a half mile and finished up like a horse with a future in his maiden tally.Owned by James Cahill, Neil Haymes and Janet Lyons, the Kentucky-bred colt by Tizway was second, beaten a nose, down the hill two starts back on Oct. 12 and will be making his sixth career start on Sunday.A 9 ½ length maiden winner going six furlongs on the main track Jan. 23, trainer Robertino Diodoro’s True Brilliance is also very quick early and will be trying turf and open company for the first time. A chestnut gelding by Unusual Heat, True Brilliance, who is owned by his breeder, Mercedes Stables, LLC, will be making his fourth career start. Favored twice, he has a pair of second place finishes to go along with his maiden win. Ridden in all three of his starts by Tyler Baze, he’ll be handled for the first time by Fernando Perez.Diodoro will also saddle another Mercedes Stables homebred, Hot Ore, who retains the services of Baze and will be making his seventh career start on Sunday. Like his stablemate, he too, is a gelding by Unusual Heat. A close second in the one mile Del Mar Juvenile Turf three starts back on Sept. 5, he comes off an even fifth place finish in the Grade III, one mile turf Cecil B. DeMille Stakes on Nov. 29.An impressive one mile turf maiden special weight winner versus open company here four starts back on June 26, Hot Ore is fresh and would appear to be the mount of choice for Baze leading into the Baffle. With an overall mark of 6-1-2-1, he has earnings of $84,156.Trainer Jeff Bonde’s He’s a Tiger, undefeated in two starts sprinting on Golden Gate Fields’ synthetic Tapeta, ships south and will get the services of Rafael Bejarano. A Kentucky-bred colt by Sky Mesa, he’s out of the Helmsman mare, Red Duchess, which would suggest he could have an affinity for turf. Owned by Aldrich, Daou and Downey, pressed the early pace in his 4 ½ furlong maiden win on May 16, and rallied from off the pace in winning a first condition allowance going six furlongs on Dec. 5.Supplemented at a cost of $1,500, Florida-bred Iron Rob was a handy 3 ¾ length maiden special weight winner going 5 ½ furlongs on dirt at Los Alamitos two starts back on Dec. 4. A bay colt by Twirling Candy, he was well beaten here in a first condition allowance going 6 ½ furlongs on the main track Jan. 3. Trained by George Papaprodromou, Iron Rob showed the way early before being well beaten in his only try on turf, going one mile against maidens on Nov. 8 at Del Mar.Owned by Kretz Racing, LLC, Iron Rob, who is 8-1-2-0 overall, should be attentive to the early pace in the Baffle.The complete field for the $75,000 Baffle Stakes, to be run as the second race on a nine-race card Sunday, with jockeys and weights in post position order: Tiz a Billy, Flavien Prat, 120; Iron Rob, Santiago Gonzalez, 120; Hot Ore, Tyler Baze, 120; He’s a Tiger, Rafael Bejarano, 122; Path of David, Joe Talamo, 124, and True Brilliance, Fernando Perez, 120.                First post time on Sunday is at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more

Pico Rivera mayor gets recall notice in group’s third attempt

first_imgOn April 3, the group served Beilke with a second notice of intent to circulate a recall petition. But in a single-sentence letter sent to the City Clerk’s Office last Friday, C-TIP said it intended to halt the recall attempt. Murga said he uncovered a “technical deficiency” in the recall document that forced his group to drop the effort. He said he had referred to Beilke as mayor pro tem instead of mayor in the petition. Beilke claimed Tuesday that the group could not even gather 500 signatures. “I don’t know of anyone who even saw the petition,” he said. But Murga said his group simply ran out of time. He blasted Beilke’s estimate of the number of signatures C-TIP was able to collect. “We have never stated how many signatures we gathered,” he said. “That goes to show his arrogance.” Beilke, who has been on the council for two years, said he believes C-TIP now has 120 days to collect the needed signatures. As part of the recall process, he said he was allowed to write up a rebuttal. He said he would not do so. “Let’s put it this way, I have seven days to put my response in to be published. I didn’t even bother responding before and I won’t bother responding this time,” he said. “I have city business to attend to.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! C-TIP claims the mayor should be removed for abuse of power and fiscal malfeasance. Murga said his group takes issue with Beilke over his support for newly rehired City Manager Chuck Fuentes and the City Council’s decision last year to close the Pico Rivera Stables. Beilke said he did not know why he was being recalled. “I don’t truly know what their reasons are, but whatever their reasons are are bogus and unfounded,” he said. It was C-TIP’s third recall attempt against the mayor. The first came to an anti-climatic end March 16, when C-TIP announced it had failed to collect the needed 5,109 voter signatures to force a special recall election. PICO RIVERA – A local political group has served Pico Rivera Mayor Ron Beilke for the third time with notice they plan to circulate a recall petition against him. Raul Murga, executive director of Pico Rivera Community for Truth in Politics – also known as C-TIP, said he served Beilke with the papers after Tuesday’s City Council meeting. The mayor showed no signs of worry Tuesday night. “It’s a waste of time like the previous two times were,” he said. “The residents absolutely ignore these people and they are happy with the progress we have been making and are more than willing to give this new council a chance. But these people \ have nothing better to do in life.” last_img read more
