RDHA turns riverfront building into “Canada’s first bookless library” dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

Canadian architecture firm RDHA has added glazed volumes to an old limestone post office in Cambridge, Ontario as part of its transformation into a community centre with makerspaces. RDH Architects Inc (RDHA) renovated and expanded the landmarked masonry structure – completed by Canadian architect Thomas Fuller in 1885 as a government building, and then later turned into post office – as it had fallen into disrepair on Cambridge’s Grand River. Created for the city’s library system, which rebranded as the Idea Exchange in 2015 to offer public library services, programmes and events, the community centre aims to rethink the format of the traditional library. Rather than containing shelves filled with books, the Idea Exchange Old Post Office instead has makerspaces, audio and film studios, a children’s discovery centre, a cafe and lounge. Because of this, it is billed as “Canada’s first bookless library”. The Idea Exchange Queen’s Square branch has an extensive book collection and is located just across the river. The four-storey building spans 18,686 square feet (1,736 square metres) and encompasses the Romanesque and Neo-Gothic style stru...

Review: HAIX Black Eagle tactical and athletic boots

You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for performance with these German-engineered boots – find out for yourself! Law enforcement is an equipment-dependent profession. We spend quite a bit of time researching our firearms, holsters, vehicles, flashlights, et al. We invest this time in the pursuit of equipment which will help us stay safe and injury free. Do we make the same investment of time in researching our duty boots? Probably not. We should probably start paying a little more attention to some of the most health-critical pieces of equipment we use every day. I recall, a few decades ago, a department in which administration required officers to wear a duty boot with slick outsoles (the part that touches the ground). They wanted to ensure that officers weren’t dragging mud into the building at the end of their shift. Not coincidentally, the department was struggling with how to address an epidemic of fall-related injuries to their officers. Thankfully, times have changed. A duty-grade set of boots should not only protect us from falls, but also against long-term injuries to our feet, hips and back. Budget boots do neither of those things. HAIX (pronounced, “hikes”) start...

Tamil Nadu Plastic Ban 2019: List of banned items and eco-friendly alternatives

With less than two weeks to go for the plastic ban to come into effect across Tamil Nadu, the state government has released a descriptive list of items that have been banned. In addition to this, the state has also recommended eco-friendly alternatives that it hopes will replace plastic. On World Environment Day this year, with a view to curb the effects of plastic on the environment, the Tamil Nadu government announced a ban of non-biodegradable and single-use plastic and had recommended the use of natural, environmental-friendly products. Explaining the dangers that the use of plastic has on the environment and on animals, Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami told the Assembly on June 5, “With the vision of gifting a plastic-free Tamil Nadu to our future generation, the government hereby bans the use of plastic goods of all sizes (microns).” The House Select Committee had also recommended the restricted use of plastic for daily-use products like milk, curd, oil and medicines. 2017 Best Seller 1. a.

EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. In local terms, Robert Zakar, who was raised in a family of merchants and has successfully operated gas stations, grocery outlets and convenience stores, decided to take a left turn and delve into — well, for lack of a better term — the body transport business. “When people pass away, we will take the deceased to a hospital or funeral home,” Zakar said. “My brothers would handle the actual transportation, while I would do the marketing and accounting. “At first, I did not want anything to do with removing bodies, it seemed pretty creepy to me; but when I thought about it, I realized that it was about the loved ones left behind,” he said. “I foun...

Wildwood pipe manufacturer sold to Taiwan firm for $25 million euros 

A Wildwood pipe manufacturer plans a major expansion after it was acquired recently by a Taiwan firm. Primus Pipe & Tube is seeking to rezone 30 acres next to its plant on West Clarke Street near U.S. 301 to industrial to facilitate the expansion. Special Magistrate Grant Watson of the Wildwood Planning and Zoning Board this week recommended that the City Commission approve the rezoning. The property currently is zoned Oxford Neighborhood Mixed Use. Watson said the city should require the manufacturer to buffer its plant from homes across Clarke Street with trees or possibly a wall. Ryan Houser of the city’s development services department said one resident complained about noise from the plant that could get worse with the expansion. The property to be developed is closer to homes than the current plant. Primus Pipe, a steel pipe and tube manufacturer, was established in 2001. The company has annual sales of about $39 million and approximately 100 employees. The sale of Primus to Ta Chen International for $25 million euros was announced Aug. 1. The new owner, a pipe distributor in the United States, is part of Ta Chen Stainless Pipe of Taiwan. A spokesman for the former ow...

Keep On Pushing: Student sit-in opposes militarization of Johns Hopkins

Earlier this week, Johns Hopkins University undergraduate and graduate students voicing ongoing opposition to the university’s all-but-fully-approved campus police force and demanding an end to JHU’s contracts with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), walked into administrative building Garland Hall and kicked off a sit-in. Wearing shirts with “NO ICE” and “NO PRIVATE POLICE” on them, the 30 or so hung up a large banner which read “NO PRIVATE POLICE, NO ICE CONTRACTS, JUSTICE FOR TYRONE WEST,” chanted “Ronny D loves the BPD”—a reference to JHU president Ronald Daniels—and then Peter Weck, a member of the Hopkins Coalition Against ICE announced that this was indeed, a sit-in. “We’re not going to be sitting in a circle, we’ll be sitting in clumps,” Mira Wattal, of Students Against Private Police (SAPP) announced and the group quickly fanned out and sat on the floor, up against the walls, and at the few tables and couches in Garland Hall, filling the lobby of the building where President Daniels has his office with energized students ready to wait the university out. “This time around we’re actually going to be sitting in here so that they will have no choice but to continue...
