Cabin (‘kab en’) 1. a small simple dwelling. 2. a shelter made of wood, situated in a wild or remote area.We all carry preconceived ideas of the word “cabin” in our collective memory — a family gathering place, a place of rest after a long day in nature, pegs on the wall to hang your coat. Ultimately, a cabin tells a story of it’s particular place and time in history, and of the people who dwell inside. Big Cabin | Little Cabin strives to embody the character and sensation of a traditional cabin, and tell the story of this particular family, all within a purely modern framework.Save this picture!© David Lauer PhotographySet high on a rocky cliff at 10,000 feet elevation, the pair of cabins command panoramic views over Colorado’s Sangre de Cristo mountains, the Collegiate Peaks, and the South Platte River. A thick forest of bristlecone and ponderosa pines surround the property to the north, giving the cabins a sense of privacy and protection.Save this picture!© David Lauer PhotographyUpon approach, the two cabins frame the sweeping view, and create a wind-protected space in between. The buildings are connected with open grate steel decking, creating a slip resistant platform that allows snow to fall through to below. Great care is taken to allow an existing mature pine to surface through the metal grate deck and stand proudly in the space between. To minimize excavation and maintain the natural topography of the site, the house is built on isolated pier foundations.Save this picture!© David Lauer PhotographyThe cabin’s gabled roof form and rustic materials recall the area’s early vernacular buildings. Exterior cedar siding is stained dark to blend the house with the surrounding forest. Large expanses of glass connect the occupants to the remarkable landscape beyond. Plywood interior walls and ceilings keep the cabin low key and rustic.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanA simple, open plan allows daylight and breezes to naturally filter through all sides of the home. High efficiency electric appliances and LED lighting keep energy consumption to a minimum. Closed and open cell foam insulation, double and triple pane windows with low-e glass, and rolling barn door shutters keep the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Heating is provided with a 96% efficiency boiler, radiant floor tubing set in a concrete slab, and a high efficiency wood burning stove. The cabin is pre-wired for a 3kw array of photovoltaic panels which will supply 100% of the cabin’s electricity.Save this picture!© David Lauer PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessSchmidt Hammer Lassen Selected in Competition for Redevelopment of Riga Historic Qua…Architecture NewsGrimshaw to Lead Design of Newark Liberty International Airport TerminalArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© David Lauer Photography+ 13Curated by María Francisca González Share United States 2017 Big Cabin | Little Cabin / Renée del GaudioSave this projectSaveBig Cabin | Little Cabin / Renée del Gaudio Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/891203/big-cabin-little-cabin-renee-del-gaudio Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeRenée del GaudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFairplayUnited StatesPublished on March 22, 2018Cite: “Big Cabin | Little Cabin / Renée del Gaudio” 22 Mar 2018.

Chevron has announced a 20% reduction in capital spending for the year, and a suspension of its share buyback scheme as it grapples with market volatility Chevron is cutting its 2020 spending plans in response to oil market crisis (Credit: Flickr/Tony Webster) Chevron is the latest oil major to announce deep spending cuts in response to the growing market crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.The California-based energy firm has slashed its capital expenditure budget for the year ahead by 20%, down from $20bn to $16bn.Operations in the Permian Basin – rich oilfields spanning Texas and New Mexico – will be most affected by the spending cuts, with a $2bn reduction planned for upstream activity in the region. Chevron will slash $2bn from Permian spending plansAcross the Chevron portfolio, $2bn will be shaved off its Permian operations, while $700m will be cut from wider upstream projects and exploration, $800m from downstream and chemicals activity, and $500m from “upstream base business spread broadly across US and international assets”.The company added in a statement: “Cash capital and exploratory expenditures are expected to decrease by $3.3bn to $10.5bn in 2020. Total capital and exploratory spending in the second half of 2020 is expected to be about $7bn, an annual run rate 30% lower than the approved budget announced in December 2019.”Production is forecast to remain flat compared to 2019, although operations in the Permian Basin are expected to produce 20% below guidance, at around 125,000 barrels per day.Chevron’s upstream executive vice president Jay Johnson said: “The flexibility of our capital programme allows us to respond to these unexpected market conditions by deferring short-cycle investments and pacing projects not yet under construction.“At the same time, we are focused on completing projects already under construction that will start up in future years. while preserving our capability to increase short-cycle activity in the Permian and other areas when prices recover.” Chevron joins contemporaries in implementing deep spending cutsLike many of its contemporaries, Chevron has also suspended its $5bn share buyback programme as it seeks to leverage cost-saving mechanisms across its business in the face of growing markets pressures and falling oil prices.Chairman and CEO Michael Wirth said Chevron’s balance sheet was “resilient” enough to withstand the “challenging environment”, and that the spending cuts were designed to “preserve cash, support our balance sheet strength, lower short-term production, and preserve long-term value”.The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic has throttled world oil demand since January, while a Saudi-Russian price war and the prospect of increased crude production from next month has added further volatility to commodity markets.Despite rallying slightly today (25 March) in anticipation of a $2tn US stimulus package for coronavirus-hit markets, Brent crude prices have more than halved in just a matter of weeks under the strain of these evolving pressures.Chevron is the latest of a number of oil majors to announce spending cuts and a suspension of share buyback schemes, with Royal Dutch Shell, Total, ConocoPhillips and Equinor all pulling the trigger on similar interventions in recent days.The company confirmed, despite these measures, the situation is expected to deal “material” damage to its future financial and operating results, with a first-quarter update due to be released soon.

Ocean City firefighters and the Somers Point community joined forces to help a retired firefighter get a new roof installed at no cost. By MADDY VITALEOcean City firefighters are helping one of their own with home repairs and even the installation of a new roof.Jimmy Leone, 69, who retired from the Ocean City Fire Department in 2005, lives at 1400 Atkinson Ave. in Somers Point.When fellow firefighters found out he was not doing well physically and couldn’t do repairs on his home, they entered a contest that would give Leone, and his wife, Constance, a new roof to their 1950 home.Four local families, including a firefighter who worked with Leone throughout his career, nominated the Leone home for “Roof on Wings,” a promotion through Surf & Turf Roofing in Egg Harbor Township.The Leone home won, and on Thursday morning work crews were steadily chipping off the old roof. The roof work is expected to be completed this week.(Video courtesy of Just Right TV Productions)Ocean City firefighters Bob Bender, George Karpinski and Wyatt Clevenger watched as their former colleague’s home was rehabbed.“We had some people say Jimmy wasn’t doing well,” Bender said as workers scooped the shingles, old insulation and debris off the home. “So just being a brother in the firehouse, we wanted to see what we could do.”The home repairs began last Friday, July 19, when more than 10 firefighters went to Leone’s home to clean up the yard, clear brush and vines off the property and landscape.The firefighters also plan to be back to do any other sprucing up that is needed as well as repairs when the new roof is installed.“We looked at what we could do, but the roof was beyond our skills,” Bender noted. “We decided to give Roof on Wings a shot. We talked to some neighbors and four families nominated the home for a new roof.”Firefighters work July 19 to clear their fellow firefighter’s property before the roof installation begins. (Photo credit Just Right TV Productions)Guy Salani, whose family owns Surf & Turf Roofing, explained how the promotion works.The contest began in 2017 and is designed for the business to give back to the community, Salani said.Like in the Leones’ case, neighbors could nominate a home or friends and family. The winner has a new roof installed at no cost.Salani said a roof is the first defense for a home against the forces of nature, and any damage could be costly both outside and inside the house.“It is a very important expense that unfortunately some people just cannot afford,” he said.On Thursday, Salani chatted with the firefighters as his crews took down the old roof.“The outpouring of support by the firefighters and families for the Leones has been incredible,” he said.Surf & Turf Roofing owner Guy Salani, left, and Ocean City firefighter Bob Bender discuss the project.Retired Ocean City firefighter Gene Leonetti, of Somers Point, worked with James Leone throughout their careers spanning about 22 years.“When I worked with Jimmy, he was just a great guy and a great firefighter,” Leonetti said. “We were on the same shift for all of the years. He always had your back. He was a hard worker.”Leonetti continued, “We worked together in so many different jobs. We laughed together. We were family.”Over the last few months, Leonetti has driven by Leone’s home and noticed it needed repairs.“When I found out about the contest, Bob Bender put Jimmy’s name in,” Leonetti explained. “The fire department is one big family and we always have each other’s backs.”The roof shingles and debris fall to the ground.

Umphrey’s McGee is currently on tour, with their most recent stop at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta, Georgia last night. Following a crazy two days at Peach Music Festival, the Chicago rockers are two shows deep into their next slew of summer dates–which will bring them to LOCKN’ on Thursday for their highly anticipated UM > String Cheese Incident > UM > String Cheese Incident play.Umphrey’s McGee is known for their rock-heavy performances and complicated compositions, with a catalogue so expansive, you’ll never know what you’ll get. Their rabid fanbase lives for the setlists and the collaborations that result from the progressive rock band’s 20 year career. On Friday night, the six piece opened their set with a rare “Flamethrower,” a song performed only 26 times since its debut in 2012. The old-school rock anthems continued for the first set, with a “JaJunk” and “Miami Virtue” both jamming over the 12-minute mark. “Roulette” also made an unexpected appearance after a 161 show gap from 1/21/16. This led into another surprise visit from “Words,” which hadn’t been played in almost exactly a year, with a 92 show gap. The first set came to a close with a monstrous “Utopian Fir” that lasted over 16 minutes, leading into a “Glory” finale.Members of Umphrey’s McGee & Aqueous To Perform Green Day’s “Dookie” At Brooklyn Comes AliveThe second set opened with a cover of David Bowie‘s “Fame,” another huge bust-out for Umphrey’s McGee, only having performed it 11 times since 2004 and last time played during their Beacon Theatre run in 2016. The “Fame” jam continued into “Much Obliged,” which eventually invited moe. percussionist Jim Loughlin to join the stage for a 15+ minute “Ocean Billy.” With moe. on their indefinite hiatus, it was great to see Loughlin perform with his fellow rock mates. We will see moe. perform with Phil Lesh in place of bassist Rob Derhak, who is currently seeking treatment for oropharyngeal cancer, at LOCKN’ next weekend.From “Ocean Billy,” Umphrey’s kicked into “Den,” a song debuted in 2012, that’s been played only 26 times and never made it onto a studio record–though it earned a place on the Hall of Fame Class of 2014 from a 11/1/14 standout performance. The next big jam of the evening occurred with a “Phil’s Farm” into “Mail Package” deluxe. The set closed with “August,” before the band returned to the stage for “The Triple Wide” encore.Thanks to taper NSL, you can listen to the full show below:Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | Chastain Park Amphitheatre | Atlanta, GA | 8/18/17I: Flamethrower > JaJunk, Roulette > Words > Miami Virtue > Cut Off, Utopian Fir > GloryII: Fame > Much Obliged > Ocean Billy*, Den, Phil’s Farm > Mail Package, AugustE: The Triple Wide*w/ Jim Loughlin (Moe) on percussion[cover photo from 7/23/17 by Phierce Photo by Keith G.

May’s dual life of being an iconic musician and astrophysicist inspired the release of “New Horizons”, and serves as a tribute to the ongoing NASA New Horizons mission—which achieved the most distant spacecraft flyby in history on New Year’s Day. Snippets of spoken-word audio from the late Stephen Hawking are sprinkled into the new song as well. May and his surviving Queen bandmates have returned to the mainstream headlines in recent weeks thanks to the global success of Bohemian Rhapsody. Last week it was even announced that one of the band’s most beloved singles for which the film is titled after has become the most-streamed song of the 20th century. May continues, “I was inspired by the idea that this is the furthest that the Hand of Man has ever reached – it will be by far the most distant object we have ever seen at close quarters, through the images which the space craft will beam back to Earth. To me it epitomizes the human spirit’s unceasing desire to understand the Universe we inhabit.” Brian May – “New Horizons”[Video: Queen Official] May has been teasing brief clips of the song’s audio through his Instagram over the past few week, which features both 80’s-sounding MIDI notation to contrast the bright and natural distortion of May’s guitar. Listen to Brian May’s first solo release in 20 years below: Queen guitarist Brian May has released his first solo single in 20 years with “New Horizons”, which premiered directly from NASA Control Headquarters in Maryland to start 2019 on a good note, literally. The famous classic rock musician teamed up with English lyricist Don Black for his first new entirely single recording since his Another World solo album arrived back in 1998. May shared some thoughts on his newest release, stating, “This project has energized me in a new way. For me it’s been an exciting challenge to bring two sides of my life together – Astronomy and Music. It was Alan Stern, the Project Instigator of this amazing NASA Mission, who threw down the glove last May. He asked if I could come up with a theme for Ultima Thule which could be played as the NH probe reached this new destination.”
