Until today Hölick Sea Resort, located on the Swedish east coast north of the city Hudiksvall, has been a traditional camping-site. The site has magnificent qualities, situated in the archipelago adjacent to wide sandy beaches, rocky shores and endless pine forests. The camping owner has a long-term plan to transform the site into a place for relaxed, simple but qualitative living and leisure. Save this picture!© Johan CnattingiusHölick Sea Resort is a total concept of living, food, services and experiences, including lodges, footpaths, bridges, lighting and signage, yet keeping a feeling of privacy and a direct encounter with nature. The area is planned for 22 houses of two different types of 80 and 90 m2. The first lodge was built in 2010, while lodge No 2 was completed in the fall of 2012. Save this picture!© Johan CnattingiusAs its predecessor, lodge No 2 is inspired by the former tents on the camping. It is as well a wooden construction, connecting to the strong local wooden tradition, however with a so-called faltak roof, traditionally found in the Baltic island of Gotland. The subtle and homogeneous wooden exterior subordinates to the surrounding pine forest. Although small in size, the interior is spacious with a double height and generous living area. The light trickled through the branches of the pines plays over the light wooden surfaces creating a constantly shifting atmosphere. With its two bedrooms and a loft, and open kitchen-living area it is a perfect hideout for friends and families who like to enjoy the sand dunes and dramatic troll-forest of Hölick.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessThe City of Fort Lauderdale Votes in Favor of BIG’s Marina LoftsArticlesWood Summit Smaland ConferenceEvent Share 2012 “COPY” Photographslast_img read more

50 years of giving and volunteering recognised at British Citizen Awards

first_img Tagged with: Awards Volunteering AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The awards are supported property and leisure management company Places for People; freight company Pall-Ex; law firm Irwin Mitchell; and not-for-profit health services provider, Benenden.Pall-Ex founder, chief executive and chairman, Hilary Devey CBE, said:“These awards help elevate the stories of British people who are making a real, and often overlooked, contribution to society. Too often, these individuals do not get the credit that they deserve – and are too modest to seek recognition – and I am proud to play a part in celebrating them.”Nominations are open for the next round of the British Citizen Awards in January 2016. There are eight categories including the arts, education, healthcare and volunteering and charitable giving. Graham Penness, of Little Sutton, Cheshire, has been given a British Citizen Award for a lifetime of volunteering and charitable giving.Seventy-eight-year-old Mr Penness has spent 31 years volunteering for numerous local branches of Save The Children, has served a total of 22 years as an independent, elected local councillor at district and parish level, and has served 23 years on various action groups and residents’ associations.The British Citizen Awards (BCAs) were launched in January this year to honour the remarkable accomplishments of individuals in society who positively impact their communities. BCAs are awarded twice annually, and recognise ‘everyday’ people whose achievements may otherwise be overlooked.During his time with Save the Children, he helped raise more than £100,000. He held various voluntary roles and twice represented volunteers at National Committee level. He stood down in 1999 after he relocated to Cheshire.He is still very active within his local community as chairman and secretary of the Ledsham and Manor Action Group, which was formed in 2011 to fight plans to build 2,000 homes on the same farmland.Winners receive a British Citizens Award medal.30 awards winnersMr Penness is one of 30 people honoured last week at a ceremony at the Palace of Westminster. Each received a Medal of Honour, inscribed with the words ‘For the Good of the Country’. Medalists have also been invited to use the initials BCA after their name.Mr Penness, who was nominated by his step-daughter, said:“It was completely unexpected but I’m very, very pleased about it. I’ve been doing this now for more than 50 years across three different counties. I have no plans to slow down, as long as my health and that of my wife, Joan, stays well. None of what I have done over the past 50 years would have been possible without the support of my whole family, for which I am very grateful.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 17 July 2015 | Newscenter_img 50 years of giving and volunteering recognised at British Citizen Awards  63 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

House unfit for human habitation claims Southill resident

He argues: “Nobody should have to live in the environment that I do”.The housing department at City Hall was not available for comment. WhatsApplast_img read more

No oral hearing on Aughinish rock-blasting

first_imgShannon Airport braced for a devastating blow CAPPAGH Farmers Support Group (CFSG) have criticised An Bord Pleanála for rejecting their application for an oral hearing regarding Rusal Aughinish’s plans to rock-blast close to the red mud ponds on their site at Aughinish Island.CFSG chairman Pat Geoghegan believes it has denied his group the opportunity to air their views publicly to the dangers of the rock blasting. He also says that Rusal’s burrow pit proposal will have a life-long detrimental impact on fauna, wildlife, marine life and the natural environment.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We believe such an application was reckless in the first place to be even lodged by this company. It would entail the setting off of explosives metres from an embankment storing approximately 40 million tonnes of toxic waste.“Should the embankment, which is only made up of crush rock was to be breached, it would allow thousands of tonnes to immediately flow into the Shannon destroying all before it,” Mr Geoghegan warned.This would leave the River Shannon destroyed for decades to come and clean up costs running into millions.“All this to save the company the cost of sourcing rock, which can easily be got from quarries in the area.”“An Bord Pleanála’s decision has also denied our group a forum for Irish and international experts to highlight the very real dangers of this rock blasting operation. We had also secured the services of an environment expert who has studied the dangers such blasting would have to the environment such as in Hungary in 2010 when people died and the local environment was destroyed,” he told the Limerick Post.Most of all, this decision has denied the local community an opportunity to voice their anger and their concerns to this blasting going ahead for approximately ten years and the effect it will also have on their property.“It’s a sad day that shows us and the public the protection that this company is afforded by An Bord Pleanála that they are not answerable to the public as we now await a final decision to be made.”In their response to the group’s claims, An Bord Pleanála stated that it has decided to determine the appeal without an oral hearing.“The Board has concluded that the appeal can be dealt with adequately through written procedures,” a spokesman explained.

Obviously, this order shall not apply to installation of high mast lights, street lights or construction relating to electrification, traffic, toll or for development and beautification of the streets, highways, roads etc. and relating to public utility and facilities”]Arguments put forthIt was argued by the Counsel for the applicant that despite the specific order of the Supreme Court followed by a Government Order dated 11th August, 2013, the respondent authorities passed a resolution for installing the statue of Maharana Pratap on the Tiraha/round about on Shamli Road in front of the Police Chowki.He alleged that the resolution passed by the authorities “is in the teeth of the judgment of the Supreme Court and is a clear contempt of the Supreme Court and the High Court should proceed to punish the opposite party for contempt.”Court’s observationsThe Court, in its order observed,”I am sorry that the argument of the counsel for the applicant cannot be accepted as the intent of the Supreme Court order was not to allow constructions of any statue on the public road, pavements, sideways and other public utility place, a round about public Tiraha does not fall within any of the said and thus the contention of the counsel for the applicant alleging contempt of the Supreme Court order is not worthy of acceptance.”The Court further said that in case applicant is aggrieved, he may take steps challenging the resolution passed by the Nagar Palika in accordance with law, if so advised. The contempt application was, accordingly, dismissed.Case title – Janvikas Society v.

Two suspects under arrest after attack on ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett: Police

first_imgABC News(CHICAGO) — Two suspects in the alleged racial attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett were arrested Friday, Chicago police said.“Police can detain the potential suspects for an additional 24 hours past the 48 hour holding period under special circumstances, but it must go through the prosecutors office and has to be clear process,” police added to ABC News.Police also confirmed “they have a relationship with [Jussie].”This news comes hours after police told ABC News they were classifying them as potential suspects.“Detectives have probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime and we are working to corroborate the allegations and investigative timeline as our investigation continues,” police said.They also shut down any reports that there was evidence to classify the alleged attack as a hoax.“While we haven’t found any video documenting the alleged attack, there is also no evidence to say that this is a hoax,” police added. “The alleged victim is being cooperative at this time and continues to be treated as a victim, not a suspect.”Chicago PD had confirmed Thursday that they identified and were questioning the two “persons of interest” in the alleged racial attack. One of them has previously appeared on Empire, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation.Police say they were tracking the two suspects and were aware of who they were “for a while,” and that investigators learned that the two individuals were returning to Chicago on Wednesday from Nigeria.The two suspects are U.S. citizens of Nigerian descent, they added.Detectives also questioned Smollett Thursday, the official said.Attorney Gloria Schmidt, who is representing the two persons of interest, told Chicago CBS station WBBM that her clients were detained at O’Hare Airport Wednesday evening and were unaware of the attack on Smollett.“When they first learned what happened to him, they were horrified,” Schmidt said. “This is someone that they know, this is someone that they work with, so they don’t want to see somebody go through that … They really don’t understand how [police] even got information that linked them to this horrific crime, but they’re not guilty of it.”Late last month, Smollett, who portrays a gay musician on Fox’s Empire, told police he was brutally attacked in what authorities are calling a suspected hate crime.He said the attackers put a noose around his neck, poured an unknown substance, likely bleach, on him and used their hands, feet and teeth as weapons in the assault, according to police. Smollett said the attackers also yelled “This is MAGA country” during the attack.He was subsequently hospitalized and released, local authorities said.In his first interview since police say he was attacked last month, the singer and actor said on Good Morning America that he was heartbroken when he found out that people questioned the details of his story.“I have to acknowledge the lies, and the hate. And it feels like if I had said it was a Muslim, or a Mexican, or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me much more. A lot more,” Smollett, 36, told ABC News’ Robin Roberts. “And that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now.”Prior to the police identifying and interviewing the two persons of interest, Smollett said he believes the two men in the photo released by police in the days after the attack are the perpetrators.“I don’t have any doubt in my mind that that’s them,” Smollett said. “Never did.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Northeast braces for possible heat wave as temperatures rise throughout US

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — There were more than 60 damaging storm reports from Colorado to Florida on Wednesday, with four reported tornadoes in Illinois.In Colorado, greater than golf ball-sized hail was reported, while in Illinois, damaging winds up to 70 mph were reported.Meanwhile, just west of New Orleans, severe storms produced roof damage and downed utility poles on Wednesday. The National Weather Service said it’s possible a tornado moved through the area.The same cold front that produced the tornadoes Wednesday will move into the eastern Great Lakes Thursday, with a threat for more tornadoes from Ohio to western Pennsylvania and New York. Damaging winds will be the biggest threat with this system, but a tornado cannot be ruled out for places like Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Erie, Pennsylvania and into Buffalo, New York.After those storms, a heat wave is expected to expand over the next several days into the Great Lakes and the Northeast, including New York City.In Washington D.C., the city is approaching its all-time longest stretch of consecutive 90-plus degrees days. If D.C. hits 90 degrees or higher Thursday, it would tie for the longest streak of 21 days in a row. And there is no relief in sight, as more 90s are forecast through the weekend and into next week.Eight states are under heat advisories Thursday, from Texas to Tennessee, where a combination of temperatures in the mid to upper 90s and high humidity will make it feel like it’s 100 to 110 degrees.Over the weekend, the heat will spread into the Great Lakes and the Northeast with temps in the 90s and high humidity it will feel like it’s closer to 100 degrees from Chicago to New York City.The heat is not expected to stop on Sunday and will very likely continue into next week for the Northeast.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
