Required fields are marked * Exquisite wood blocks, the work of Sierra Madre resident and artist Marvin (Elmer) Weese, are a special part of the rare book collection and the Sierra Madre Historical Archives, housed at the Sierra Madre Public Library.Weese’s stunning work is featured in Early California with block prints in color, 1952, hand printed in Sierra Madre and signed by the author “For the Sierra Madre Library, Sincerely, Marvin Weese”. He made watercolor sketches, cut out the blocks, and printed the block print illustrations in his book which took him 15 years to complete. According to an LA Times March 6, 1955 article Weese’s book, “Presents the story of California from Cortez to “The Iron Horse” in capsule form… represents a dramatic episode or period of the State’s colorful history.”Weese was a master of wood print art, and beginning in the late 1930’s, he worked on a project that combined his passions: early California history; Southwestern Indian culture; wood block printing; and photography. The detail, beauty, and expertise are seen in each of the 38 wood block prints that completed his handmade masterpiece chronicling the early years of California. For the block prints that illustrate early Sierra Madre and California history, Weese cut out 160 blocks in linoleum on wood and used 200 colors, mixing them fresh for every block. Each illustration required the creation of five wood blocks.An exhibit of 40 etchings, lithography and block prints was on display at “Sierra Madre’s new Public Library” in 1955. Weese lived in Sierra Madre for 38 years, was active in the community, ran the Sierra Madre City Hall art gallery, and had artistic ties to noted local artist Alfred Dewey.Local History and Rare Book CollectionsWeese’s book is a part of Sierra Madre Library’s rare book collection that includes rare editions and signed copies of books with special Sierra Madre, San Gabriel Valley, and California interest.

Related Articles This week, city residents and lawyers at a Philadelphia City Hall news conference, called on the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) to eliminate a policy that often requires homeowners facing foreclosure to first pay off any liens against them before their mortgage can be modified, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. These liens, the lawyers said, can include water and gas debts, real estate back taxes, medical bills, or parking tickets.According to housing advocates, homeowners with Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans administered by PHFA have had a harder time securing permanent loan modification when they have liens and judgments against them. The loans allow homeowners to pay as little as 3.5% of a purchase price for a down payment. “It’s a practice that threatens [homeowners] with the unnecessary loss of their homes, and threatens to put people into a market where housing is not affordable [and] is not available,” said Irwin Trauss, a lawyer with Philadelphia Legal Assistance.Kate Newton, PHFA’s Director of Loan Servicing, told the The Philadelphia Inquirer that the issue boils down to PHFA trying to comply with regulations from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Nearly half of the athe PHFA’s portfolio is FHA loans, and in the past two years, the PHFA has agreed to permanently modify more than 500 loans in Philadelphia.“Unless [these municipal liens] do a subordination agreement or they get paid off … we know our modified mortgage would not be in first position,” Newton said. “… It would be a lot easier for us if we didn’t have to worry about doing all of this, and we don’t want to be in this position, either.”According to ATTOM Data Solutions, 277 Philadelphia homeowners had foreclosure proceedings filed against them in August 2019. Additionally, Philadelphia holds one of the highest foreclosure rates among cities with at least one million people, at one in every 1,422 housing units as of August 2019.last_img read more

A single bench of Justice H P Sandesh will be passing the order. Mukherjee has sought transit bail as she is apprehending arrest in the Fake Television Rating Points (TRP) Scam case registered by the Mumbai police. Senior advocate Devadatt Kamat appearing for the Mumbai police raised preliminary objection on the maintainability of the petition. He said “This is nothing but forum shopping and submitted that petition is not maintainable.” Relying on the petition filed before the Bombay High Court seeking to quash the FIR, Kamat argued that this petition under section 438 of CrPC, filed before this court is a cut and paste of the petition filed before the Bombay High Court, where relief is sought against employees of the company and others. The same has not been produced before this court by the applicant. “It is a case where after having got no relief from the Bombay High Court this is a second attempt to bite at the cherry.” He also submitted that police were never informed on November 19, that she will be available before the investigating agency on November 24, as being said by the applicant. He relied on the communication sent by her to the investigating agency, in which there was no mention of the date. Further he submitted that the police team left Mumbai on November 20, for Bangalore apprehending that she had absconded. Kamat also submitted that the key link between the arrested accused Ghansyam Singh and the present applicant is the phone chats. The urgent need for her interrogation is because she is in a habit of deleting her phone chats as is recorded in her statement. “Therefore the delay in coming before the investigating agency, as evidence is going to be tampered,” he submitted.” The Counsel for Priya Mukherjee refuted the contentions raised by the Mumbai police saying “It was not she who had approached the Bombay HC but it was Arnab Goswami who had approached the court for himself.” He added that when notice was issued to her the applicant has attended before the investigating officer and cooperated in the probe and will do so in future. He prayed for 20 days time to approach the Bombay HC and protection till then. It was also said that “It is quite atrocious on the part of respondent 3 to go behind a lady. They (respondent 3) want to prove a point to somebody else.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Multibeam bathymetry and the depositional environments of Kongsfjorden and Krossfjorden, western Spitsbergen, Svalbard

first_imgKongsfjorden and Krossfjorden are two ice-proximal fjords on the western coast of Spitsbergen which have been surveyed using multibeam bathymetry, sub-bottom profiling and gravity coring. Central and outer Kongsfjorden is dominated by a 30 km2 outcrop of bedrock, with a thin (<10m) sediment cover. The bedrock displays a relict sub-glacial, ice-scoured topography produced during the glacial re-advances of the Weichselian (20 Ky BP) and again during the last major Holocene re-advance of the Little Ice Age (550-200 yrs BP). Drumlins and glacial flutes are common across the floor of Kongsfjorden, with lengths of 1.5-2.5 km and widths of <100 m, rising up to 10 m in water depths of <100 m. This topography is smoothed by bottom currents from the wind-driven forcing of surface waters. The flow is counter-clockwise, matching boundary layer movement under the influence of Coriolis force. Both fjords are characterized by a variable acoustic character, based on sub-bottom profile data. The deepest basins are dominated by parallel, well-laminated reflectors and an irregular-transparent acoustic character indicating the presence of Holocene-age fine-grained sediments up to 30 m thick. A parallel, irregular-transparent acoustic character with waveform morphology in inner Kongsfjorden is interpreted as moraines, originating from the 1948 and 1869 surges of Kronebreen glacier. Mass-flows are common on the flanks of topographic highs as acoustically chaotic-transparent lensoid and wedge-shaped reflectors. The sediments of outer and central Kongsfjorden are characterized by bioturbated, gas-rich homogeneous muds interpreted as being the result of the settling of fine-grained sediment and particulate suspensionslast_img read more

DSME contracts Babcock for Chang Bogo III submarine work

The contract will be delivered by a global supply chain with suppliers in UK, Spain and South Korea.The contract, due to run until 2024, follows on from Babcock’s contract with DSME for the design, production and delivery of the weapon handling and launch equipment for the first and second boat-sets.The Weapon Handling Launch System (WHLS) features an air turbine pump (ATP) and programmable firing valve launch (PFV) system and is based on the principles used in the WHLS being supplied by Babcock for other navies, including the UK Astute class and Spanish S-80 submarines.DSME started construction of the first 3,000-tonne, KSS III submarine in May 2016 with a keel-laying ceremony at its Okpo shipyard on Geoje Island.The keel-laying ceremony came four years after DSME received a contract from South Korea’s Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA) to construct the first two submarines in 2012.The second batch of three KSS III submarines will be built by another South Korean shipbuilder, Hyundai Heavy Industries, who already started construction works on its first – and overall third – KSS III submarine in June this year.Up to nine of the indigenously built KSS III diesel-electric attack submarines are planned to be constructed. Measuring 83.5 meters in length, the boats will feature air-independent propulsion and vertical launch tubes capable of firing the new, domestically-designed Hyunmoo-3C cruise missiles.
