COMMUNITY FOCUS: CATHEDRAL QUARTER, LETTERKENNY TO HOST ITS FIRST AGM

first_imgLetterkenny’s Cathedral Quarter committee will host its first ever AGM this Tuesday, 24th March in Dillon’s Hotel, Main Street, Letterkenny at 8pm.Letterkenny’s Church LaneThe committee is actively seeking new members to help build on the momentum that has been generated to date. Everyone is welcome and membership costs €5.The Cathedral Quarter originally began as the Save the Church Lane campaign and since its formation last year, the project has gone from strength to strength in its efforts to regenerate the historical Church Lane and surrounding areas. Last week, the committee had a highly successful St Patrick’s Day, hosting the Cathedral Quarter’s first ever Church Lane concert. The Cathedral Quarter committee also took part in the parade alongside Letterkenny Community Heritage Group, marking the first collaboration between the two groups. Thomas Brogan from the Community Heritage Group had some wonderful costumes and the committee is already looking forward to next year’s event.Committee member Donnan Harvey said: ‘Our first ever Church Lane Concert was a huge success and we would like to thank all who took part including the Letterkenny Senior Accordion Band – LSAB, Maria Mc Cormack Singer/Songwriter, Finnian O’Donnell, Sinead Gallagher and Irish dancers Maria McKinney and Kayleigh Barry. We’re already planning more concerts for later in the year’.Adding to this, Donnan said: ‘The Cathedral Quarter is delighted to announce that we have submitted a bid for a grant from The Heritage Council. We are seeking funding so to prepare a conservation plan for the area. Our group would like to thank Duncan McLaren from Dedalus Architects for his help in submitting the bid. We are also grateful to Dessie Larkin, the town centre manager, Toni Forrester from Letterkenny Chamber and Anne McGowan from Letterkenny Tidy Towns for endorsing our bid’.Donnan continued: ‘We are also part of another exciting proposal for a Cross border project based on conservation and architectural projects. Mary Kerrigan from Derry has asked to be part of a ‘Streets Alive’ initiative and we will be teaming up with Chamberlain St and Fountain St in Derry as we examine ways to regenerate our streets. Although we have different backgrounds, we all share something in common, because we want to re-energize our areas – a goal that is very achievable in time. We hope that the Council looks favourably on our proposals as it would really help kick-start our project’. The long term goal for the Cathedral Quarter is to create a hidden treasure in the heart of Letterkenny for locals and tourists to enjoy.

Meet LiquidSpace: The Airbnb of Office Space

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts center_img mike melanson Tags:#mobile#web Over the last year, I’ve worked in countless noisy coffee shops and dropped in to various co-working spaces. And I’m not alone. Analytics firm Forrester reported that there were 375 million mobile workers worldwide in 2010, with many of them working out of noisy, concentration-breaking locations where client meetings and phone calls were nearly impossible feats. LiquidSpace is launching just in time for swarms of mobile workers to descend upon Austin next week for the SXSW conference, and it hopes to do what it does best – help users to “find a great space to work – now.”LiquidSpace is launching initially for the iPhone and iPad and helps to find office space for mobile workers, wherever and whenever they are. The app uses your location to build an initial list of potential workspaces and then asks you for a number of characteristics to find the best fit. It sorts spaces according to whether you want to meet in public or work by yourself, for example. Beyond that, it takes into account the number of people, time requested and distance from your current location to determine the best location for you.“We open the doors to a variety of work spaces — in Austin, the Bay Area, and soon — across the U.S.,” said Co-founder and CEO Mark Gilbreath. “LiquidSpace makes it possible to reserve space that fits the work you’re doing, the people you’re meeting, and collaboration you’re seeking. The result is a more productive and effective mode of work that puts us back in the drivers seat when we’re out and about, doing what we do best.”LiquidSpace also makes sure that everything is handled securely for both the worker and the office space provider. For example, if a door code of wifi passcode is needed, it only becomes available once you’ve checked into that location. Over SXSW, the company has created several special locations for mobile workers looking for a quiet place to work or meet with clients. The app goes live in the App Store today, so head on over to LiquidSpace and give it a download.Take a look at the video below for a full walk-through:last_img read more

Slow Progress on New Blowing Agents for Polyiso

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members R-value tests by the National Roofing Contractors Association and the Building Science Corporation have revealed that the thermal performance of polyisocyanurate is greatly reduced at cold temperatures. While the R-value of polyiso at a mean temperature of 75°F might be about R-5.7 per inch, the effective R-value of the polyiso drops to about R-4.8 per inch at a mean temperature of 25°F.Over the past three years, GBA has published several articles on this problem. (See, for example, In Cold Climates, R-5 Foam Beats R-6 and Cold-Weather Performance of Polyisocyanurate.) As builders have learned that polyiso wasn’t doing as good an insulating job at cold temperatures as they had thought, they’ve started to ask questions, including:In response to such questions, it’s fair to say that polyiso manufacturers have been tight-lipped. John Straube, a professor of Building Envelope Science at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, has had several conversations with representatives of polyiso manufacturers. In a 2015 interview, Straube told me, “Maybe the manufacturers … are not telling us the truth. But in apparently honest conversations with several polyiso manufacturers, they’ve told me that they do not fully understand why this is happening. PIMA [the Polyisocyanurate Insulation Manufacturers Association] doesn’t even believe the phenomenon is real. Some of their members … say, ‘I am not 100% sure it is a real effect.’ Well, it is real. … Here’s the thing about polyiso manufacturers: They do not share their proprietary formulations. Manufacturer A may not know what is in Manufacturer B’s foam. So now, when we discuss cold weather performance, they are kind of going, ‘I’m really surprised.’ But it’s possible that they are jiving me.”… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?
