Part of a trend? 21-year-old Suffolk independent estate agency shuts up shop

first_imgA renowned and award-winning Suffolk estate agency that has been in business since 1998 led by a director with over 29 years’ experience in the industry is to shut up shop.Clive Robinson has closed his Bury-St Edmunds based business Robinson Portfolio which is in its third location since being incorporated.The 52-year-old says his decision was driven by a desire to diversify into other areas of property as a consultant, but also because of the volatility in the market ‘since the 1980s’.Robinson (pictured, left) says the market has picked up since the recession prompted by the 2008 banking crisis, but that: “The best thing for everybody is a stable market,” he told local media.“If you get price spikes and price dips it’s not good – everybody likes to know where they are. That’s how it used to be in the 40s, 50s and 60s. It was the boom in the 80s that set that trend off.”Robinson says his decades of experience in the local property market won’t be lost and that he is to set up a business off the high street offering a service he believes currently doesn’t exist; offering advice on improving, extending, planning and preparing properties for sale.He will also be advising vendors on instructing the best estate agents and guiding them through the sale process.Robinson Portfolio’s two members of staff who between them have been with the company for over 20 years, are hoping to find roles at another independent estate agency in the town. Robinson Portfolio Bury St Edmunds Suffolk April 24, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

HMAS Arunta tests stability after AMCAP upgrade

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today First Australian frigate to complete AMCAP upgrade tests stability First Australian frigate to complete AMCAP upgrade tests stability View post tag: HMAS Arunta The first Royal Australian Navy Anzac-class frigate to undergo the Anzac Midlife Capability Assurance Program (AMCAP) upgrade has completed the inclining experiment at Henderson Shipyard, Western Australia to test stability.HMAS Arunta underwent the test after more than a year out of the water as part of the upgrade.An inclining experiment is a test performed on a ship to determine its stability, lightship weight and the coordinates of its center of gravity. The experiment is applied to newly constructed ships greater than 24m in length, and to ships altered in ways that could affect stability.The weight of a ship can be readily determined by reading draughts and comparing with the known hydrostatic properties. The ‘metacentric height’ (GM), which dominates stability, can be estimated from the design, but an accurate value must be determined by an inclining experiment.The experiment involves positioning the ship in a still body of water and applying weights in varying configurations throughout the ship and measuring the list of the ship for each configuration.The experiment that was performed on HMAS Arunta will be used as a basis for updating the trim and stability handbook for all future AMCAP ships.The upgrade, being implemented by the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA), includes significant improvements to major platform systems such as the communications center, and the replacement of the ship’s long range air search radar.As explained, the replacement mast is taller and wider than the existing mast so that it can accommodate the new CEA L-Band radar system, while retaining the existing anti-ship missile defense radar capability. The new L-Band radar capability will be integrated into the existing combat management systems of the ships by SAAB Australia.Arunta’s Marine Engineer Officer, Lieutenant Commander Leonard Woodman, said the inclining experiment is another important milestone for both Arunta and the Anzac Mid-Life Capability Assurance Program (AMCAP).“The inclining experiment, while being a standard practice after a significant upgrade, has provided good data that will support all the ships that come after us on the AMCAP,” he said.The AMCAP aims to remediate obsolescence issues and upgrades ship systems, positioning the Anzac Class ships for sustainment and maintenance of its warfare systems capabilities.WAMA is an alliance consisting of the Commonwealth, BAE Systems Australia, Saab Australia and Naval Ship Management Australia.Arunta is the first ship to complete the AMCAP upgrade and is scheduled to return to the fleet this year. HMAS Anzac, Arunta’s sister ship has already started upgrade work at the Henderson facility.

All Aboard At The Jingle Rails At The Eiteljorg

first_imgThe Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art is showcasing the 10th year of  Jingle Rails, a G-scale model holiday train exhibit featuring nine model trains. Each train winds around its own track with a different backdrop made entirely of all-natural materials.All the backdrops, buildings and tracks are designed and created by a company called Applied Imagination, based out of Alexandria, Kentucky, which designs botanical architecture exhibits across the country. Each year, the display adds new backdrops displaying a new nationally recognized landscape.New this year to the exhibit is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and historic Spanish Colonial missions of the Southwest, including The Alamo.Eiteljorg staff brainstorms for new backdrop scenes each year and Applied Imagination brings them to life. This year’s depiction of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway track was a request from a longtime donor.“Applied Imagination does tremendous work in creating fanciful botanical miniature reproductions of famous landmarks,” said Bryan Corbin, public relations manager for the Eiteljorg. “We are delighted at how they can take an idea and turn it into a three-dimensional creation made of all-natural woodsy materials for the model trains to ramble through and for visitors to enjoy.” Admission to Jingle Rails is included in museum admission—$15 for adults, $13 for seniors aged 65 and over, $8 for youths between ages 5 and 17 and full-time students with an ID. Children 4 and under, IUPUI students and faculty, and members of the museum are free.The Eiteljorg is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Throughout the month of December, the museum will be open every Monday until 8 p.m. Parking, when available, is free in the White River State Park underground parking garage. The museum will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.Jingle Rails will run until Martin Luther King Day which is Jan. 20 and on that day admission will be free for everyone.FOOTNOTE: Brynna Sentel is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.Print Friendly, PDF & EmailFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Several national parks and landmarks of the American West are depicted throughout the exhibit, including Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Golden Gate bridge and the Grand Canyon. The exhibit also showcases some local landmarks such as Lucas Oil Stadium, Monument Circle, Union Station and the Eiteljorg Museum.“It’s intended to be kind of whimsical,” Corbin said. “It very much has a multi-generational appeal. Children obviously love trains but for adults and grandparents it can remind folks of maybe a favorite family vacation out west they went on several years ago.”It’s not just the backdrops that have meaning. The trains themselves also represent different eras of transportation history.Many of the trains portray actual trains around the world such as the “Train of the Stars” that used to run from Chicago to Hollywood, the Indiana Railroad Engine and the Indiana Southern railroad.The trains are kept up and going by volunteers such as Tom Bromstrup who has been dubbed the “chief engineer.”“When they first started to open this, they put a flyer out for people that were into model railroads if they wanted to come and volunteer and do this, so I volunteered” Bromstrup said. “Day One I was here, and not very often I’m not here. So they have basically become my babies.”center_img All Aboard At The Jingle Rails At The EiteljorgBy Brynna SentelTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS—One might think visiting a train exhibit at the Eiteljorg Museum would be a calm traditional museum experience, but among the realistic sounds of train horns, conversations between families and volunteer model train engineers and the overall excitement from young kids taking in the experience, Jingle Rails is a fun and stimulating experience for all of its visitors.last_img read more

12 Days Of Phishmas: The Famed JEMP Truck Set Celebrating Phish’s 30th

first_imgIn 10 short days, Phish will settle in at Madison Square Garden for their traditional end-of-the-year run. Phish is no stranger to the Garden, having now played the famed venue in the heart of New York City 35 times over the course of their career. From their MSG debut in 1994 to their most recent appearances at the very beginning of 2016, the storied room has played host to some of the most treasured shows in the band’s history. As we inch closer to this year’s New Year’s Run, we will be bringing you our 12 Days Of Phishmas series, highlighting a different milestone MSG Phish show each day until we all head back to the Garden on the 28th. It wasn’t easy narrowing 35 down to 12, but we think you’ll be pleased with these classics from the Phish catalog. Enjoy! 30 years is a long time for anything, especially in the music world. When you consider just how many artists have come and gone in the period between 1983 nd 2013, it’s beyond impressive that Phish has been able to create, build, and nurture such a devoted following. All of those emotions were on full display on the final day of 2013, when Phish treated fans to a one-of-a-kind-performance at Madison Square Garden.So, on the third day of Phishmas, we’re looking closely at the famed “JEMP Truck Set” that Phish played for their fans on New Year’s Eve of 2013. The show was a true celebration of Phish’s 30th birthday, even including a piano-shaped cake that the band presented, and distributed to nearby fans, at the end of the first set.The first set of the show, and really the first three days of the run, were a great warmup for what was to come. In honor of their 30th birthday, and possibly in protest of Billy Joel, the band decided to go all original for their four night stand at MSG. Throughout the first three nights of the run, not a single cover was played, as Phish instead decided to hone in on their true Phishiness. All in all, Phish played 84 of their own songs over four nights, as each show raised the anticipation for what was to come.Indeed, the first set of the 12/31/13 show essentially follows the theme of the previous three shows as a musical self-celebration. There was the rocking “AC/DC Bag” opener, the darkness of “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing”, the call and response of “Wilson”, the beauty of “Divided Sky”, some newer songs in “Ocelot”, “Sugar Shack” and “Halfway to the Moon” and, to close it all out, the pill-induced saga that is “Fluffhead”. It was a set that brought a smile to the fans’ faces to set the stage for what was to come.During the setbreak, a video aired showing drummer Jon Fishman searching through old NYE props and finding a broken truck labeled “JEMP”. As fans would quickly surmise, JEMP was an acronym for the first letters of each band members’ name: Jon Fishman, Ernest (Trey) Anastasio, Mike Gordon and Page McConnell. In the video, Fishman restores the trucks and races it to MSG, when all of a sudden the truck is literally carried into the middle of the floor. Not only that, but the top of the truck was adorned with Phish’s set up from their earliest days, even down to the hockey stick microphones.Watch the JEMP video and a pro-shot highlight compilation released by Phish, below.As Phish set themselves up with their earliest equipment, they also stuck to their earliest material for the entire set. They opened the set with “Glide”, a rarity that was written in 1981 and found its way onto the Picture Of Nectar album. The song hadn’t been played in over 80 shows, and still remains a rarity. Its choice as the set opener only raised expectations for a set filled with oldies, bust outs and more.The great songs kept on coming as the band broke out into a funk fueled “Llama” jam atop their JEMP Truck. The party kept going with a classic pairing from the Gamehendge saga, “Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird.” The “Mockingbird” narration was short, reflecting on the band’s 30 year anniversary.The band then dusted out one of Mike Gordon’s earliest tunes, a little song called “Fuck Your Face.” They then brought out a fan favorite in “Reba,” bringing one of the biggest jams of this celebratory set. Though “Reba” gets more airtime than most of the songs in the setlist, its inclusion was a perfect reminder of just how many great songs Phish actually has. The song’s dichotomy between rigorous composition and free-form jamming is quintessential Phish.Of course, one of the biggest highlights of the JEMP set, as a whole, was their version of “Icculus.” The rarely played Gamehendge song featured a lengthy discussion from Trey about how, after 30 years, fans still aren’t reading the book. He shouts, “Read it! Read it! Read the fucking book!” after a long build up, before finally introducing the titular character “Icculus.” It was a real treat to see the band indulge their true silliness, something that was on display frequently in their earliest days.Afterwards, Trey and Page took a moment to reflect on how lucky they were to perform music as silly as “Icculus” in the middle of Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve, 30 years into their careers as Phish. It was quite the celebration, and the crowd’s cheers were only amplified when Trey played the opening notes of “The Lizards”. The beloved Gamehendge tune sent chills throughout the audience, but the set wasn’t over! The band ended their JEMP Truck display with a “Split Open And Melt” for the ages, finishing up the set with one last jam that dates to their earliest days.Fortunately, full video of the JEMP Truck Set can be seen below.The rest of the show was certainly no slouch either, as the band brought out “Character Zero” before counting down the New Year with “Auld Lang Syne.” They then went into one of their newest songs at the time, “Fuego”, as a signal of bringing new music into 2014. They would ultimately release an album in 2014, titled Fuego.The final set also included some fun jamming in “Light” and “Twenty Years Later,” a fun “Bouncing Around The Run” and the opus of “You Enjoy Myself.” What would a 30 year celebration of Phish be without YEM? Finally, they wrapped up the show with an encore that included the a cappella “Grind” and the reflective ballad, “Show Of Life.”It was simultaneously a perfect celebration of the New Year and Phish’s legacy, all in one glorious night at Madison Square Garden. Check out the Phish.net setlist below, and merry Phishmas!Setlist: Phish | Madison Square Garden | New York, NY | 12/31/13Set 1: AC/DC Bag > A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing > Wilson > Divided Sky, Ocelot, Sugar Shack, Halfway to the Moon > FluffheadSet 2: Glide, Llama, Colonel Forbin’s Ascent > Fly Famous Mockingbird, Fuck Your Face, Reba, Icculus, The Lizards, Split Open and MeltSet 3: Character Zero > Auld Lang Syne > Fuego > Light > Twenty Years Later > Bouncing Around the Room, You Enjoy MyselfEncore: Grind, Show of LifeThis show was webcast via LivePhish. After the conclusion of the first set, Trey and Page carried a keyboard-shaped cake out to the front of the stage (with a giant two-dimensional mountain behind it, this created a tableau of the cover of Phish’s Colorado ’88 release), and proceeded to slice and serve cake in honor of their 30th anniversary to fans near the front of the stage. After the cake was served, a video was played showing Fish collecting various props from the band’s previous New Year’s Eve concerts and driving a replica of the band’s “JEMP” truck down to New York City. The truck from the video appeared in Madison Square Garden and was moved to the center of the floor. All of the songs played during both setbreaks were from the year 1983. The band performed the second set standing on top of the truck, using a stripped-down stage setup including hockey sticks for mic stands. Melt contained a DEG tease from Trey. During Grind, the “days lived” stated by the band referenced how old they would be when they returned for their 60th anniversary. During the encore break, a video montage of photographs and film from throughout Phish’s history and previous New Year’s Eve concerts was shown. After the encore, a video image was shown of a “Save the Date” card for Phish’s 60th anniversary show (on December 31, 2043) with each band member digitally aged.Stay tuned over the next ten days for more Phishmas! ‘Tis the season!On the third day of Phishmas, a Phish phan played for me… Three Phishy Decades (12/31/13)Two Sitting Legends (10/22/96) and The Gamehendge Time Factory (12/31/95)!Don’t miss out on any of the fantastic pre-shows and after-parties around NYC during Phish’s upcoming MSG New Year’s Run!12/28: Aqueous + Mungion @ DROM (Phish After-Party) – tickets12/30: Phan Art w/ Formula 5 @ American Beauty (Phish Pre-Party) – FREE SHOW12/30-31: Spafford & Magic Beans @ American Beauty (Phish After-Party) – ticketslast_img read more
