To help the toddler actors find their spots, the teacher covered the stage with tiny chalk crosses to mark the locations where the children were supposed to stand. But there was one problem: the youngsters never practiced in costume, which meant the teacher didn’t account for the angels.Twenty cherubim and seraphim floated onto the stage, their costumes gossamer and willowy, their wings big — very, very big.As they stood on their crosses, in that charming, angelic way, twenty little shepherds emerged, only they couldn’t find their places, because the angel wings hovered above their crosses and prevented their standing on them.All of this got just a little too infuriating for one small shepherd, who caught the eye of his teacher behind the curtain and yelled — and please excuse my language here—”Because of these damn angels, I can’t find the cross!” (Best Sermons 3, Harper & Row, 1990, 49-50).Ironically, those angels kept that little boy from adopting his new identity — from becoming a shepherd awed by Jesus’ birth. So he lost his temper. But he knew what God meant for him to become, and he spoke up, because he must have known that following God is important, even, one might argue, worth an occasional explicative.As faithful Christians worldwide approach Holy Week, we meet many individuals who encounter obstacles when it comes to adopting a new identity in Christ. Judas, for instance, was offered a chance to become one of the founders of the church, one of Christianity’s most historic disciples, but he ultimately forsook his role as a Jesus-follower because his loyalty lay with 30 silver coins.Peter, unlike Judas, ultimately accepted a new identity in Christ. That new identity might be best symbolized by the new name Jesus gave him—Peter, which comes from the Greek word for rock. Peter, Jesus said, would become the rock on which the church would be built.Yet Peter struggled with his new identity. He made mistakes, including the three times he denied Jesus. Yet he ultimately accepted his calling, and he stayed to watch Jesus’ sufferings until the very end. Then he became the foundation of the church, just as Jesus said he would be.Peter, like the boy at the Christmas pageant, had to stand at the cross to become the person he was meant to be, even if it meant sacrificing joy, even if it meant pushing aside something joyous and beautiful, like an angel.We too are asked to stay throughout the temptations of Lent and the anguish of Holy Week in order to receive a new life in Christ. As it was for Peter and the shepherd, there may be complications; we may want to run and hide. We may, like Judas, even want to betray the one who is ever loyal to us.And yet, we are asked to remain, to sit with Jesus on Maundy Thursday, to hear the story of his death on Good Friday. Why? So that we too may be transformed, resurrected in this life and the mysterious one ahead, to become people of God.Laurie Haller didn’t give any details beyond the moment when that little shepherd uttered a profanity, so I never learned how the story ended. I never found out whether the little boy found his cross, whether he stood on it proudly or left the stage annoyed. But my faith tells me this: that some angels moved and made room for him, and he stood, firm-footed on that cross, and held his staff straight and tall. Then he smiled at his parents because that’s what people of God do. They work hard to grow into the identity God intends for them.And then they rejoice.— The Rev.

Our clients, a couple with 3 children, had purchased a triangular, wooded, corner lot on high ground in Amagansett, NY and contacted us to explore means of building a house for their summer and year-round-weekend use. The site is constricted due to its shape, but, due to its elevation, affords beautiful sunset views and light. Programmatically, we were asked to provide 4 bedrooms, 3 shareable bathrooms, kitchen and living spaces; plus, outdoor eating and recreation areas and a pool; and enough lawn area to play games.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneMore critically, our clients had a limited budget—significantly below prevailing construction costs. They were open to exploring materials, methods of construction, and design strategies that would yield both affordable and exciting solutions.Save this picture!Floor plansBased on prior experience, we knew that conventional ‘stick-build’ construction using local labor would be prohibitively expensive. We suggested prefabricating the building off-site; and the use of shipping containers to lower cost, ease transportation, and provide the kind of design experimentation that they were open to. Our past work proved that by streamlining this process, we could achieve significant cost reductions.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneBut shipping containers are inherently narrow (7’-2” wide, finished inside). So, we opted to stack two 40’ long x 8’ wide containers on top of two and carve out the interior floor/wall/ ceiling of half of this ‘4-pack’ unit to create a voluminous, 17’ tall, living space that would create an exciting and necessary spatial relief. To reach the second floor from this room, we chose to install a wide staircase, taking the whole width of a single container; in this manner, we extend the high living room ceiling and transform the stair itself into a kind of ‘amphitheatrical’ room that faces the backyard, pool, and sunsets—through floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, windows.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneThe simplicity of spatial layout and materials were sought to yield compelling and uncluttered rooms while achieving budget goals. As such, we used the rectilinear geometry of containers, and their inherent structural strengths to guide room layout and structural requirements. In fact, the small 10’ x 10’ 2nd-floor extension is essentially bolted and welded back to the main building and held in tension—it is devoid of beams underneath. The single container housing two bedrooms are placed slightly away from the main building to create courtyard-like outdoor spaces that allow the building to nestle into the sloping landscape while making the small house feel spacious.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneA single tall oak tree was carefully retained during construction and maintains a pivotal point anchoring the two parts of the building together. The transparent bridge connecting these two building parts is surrounded by tall grasses and shrubs creating a pleasant walk-through experience both as one travels through the bridge and as one approaches the front door of the house. Our building was installed in two days; fully completed in two months, and cost significantly and meaningfully less than prevailing building costs.Save this picture!© Matthew CarboneProject gallerySee allShow lessIntroducing an Illustrated Series: Architecture and Cities Post-virusArticlesHouse for an Artist / Castroferro ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Photographs Year: Houses CopyAbout this officeMB ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmagansettOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on April 21, 2020Cite: “Amagansett Modular House / MB Architecture” 21 Apr 2020.

Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today USS O’Kane Starts Biggest Drydocking Period in PHNSY History View post tag: americas View post tag: Naval USS O’Kane Starts Biggest Drydocking Period in PHNSY History May 14, 2015 View post tag: Drydocking View post tag: News by topic The guided-missile destroyer USS O’Kane (DDG 77) completed its move to Dry Dock 4 at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam on March 4 to begin its drydocking selected restricted availability (DSRA), the biggest in Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard (PHNSY) history.O’Kane returned to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, the ship’s homeport, on Dec. 5, 2014 following a nine-month deployment to the Arabian Gulf and Western Pacific Ocean where they conducted operations supporting regional security and counter-terrorism.Cmdr. Gina McCaine, commanding officer of USS O’Kane, said:This is the 2nd docking in O’Kane’s 15-year history. The repairs and modernizations she receives during this DSRA are critical to sustaining her capability to defend our nation.After months of preparation, the availability began on Feb. 23 following the offload of all missiles and ammunition. Shipyard personnel and tugs precisely maneuvered USS O’Kane into the drydock basin, tied her to the pier, and drained the basin. This allowed the ship to rest on preplaced blocks allowing shipyard personnel and contractors access to below the waterline areas for maintenance, repairs, and upgrades to critical systems on USS O’Kane. This maintenance will help ensure O’Kane reaches the expected life span of 40 years.Work scopeThe availability is 37 weeks. Of those 37 weeks, the ship will spend more than 20 in drydock. Twenty-nine ship alterations are scheduled with one of the largest being the installation of an improved SONAR (Sound Navigation And Ranging) suite. It provides surface warships with a seamlessly integrated undersea/anti-submarine warfare detection, localization, classification and targeting capability. The system presents an integrated picture of the acoustic tactical situation by receiving, combining and processing active and passive sonar sensor data from a variety of hull-mounted arrays, towed arrays, and sonobuoys. This upgrade to the anti-submarine warfare suite will reduce weight, space, cooling, and power requirements.Other major alterations include a bow strengthening modification, advanced galley modifications to enhance meal prep times and serving capacity, two berthing complex renovations, mast preservation, antenna overhaul, and shafts/rudders/propeller reconditioning. O’Kane will also be the first in the U.S. Pacific Fleet to receive the key management infrastructure (KMI) installation. KMI replaces the existing crypto system to provide a means for securely ordering, generating, producing, distributing, managing, and auditing cryptographic products.The projected scope of work is in excess of 80,000 man-days. The predicted manpower requirements are more than 500 people per day. The overall cost is estimated to be $52 million.April 29 marked USS O’Kane’s 25 percent completion of DSRA. O’Kane expects to undock on Aug. 26 and complete the availability on Nov. 6.[mappress mapid=”15965″]Image: US Navy View post tag: Navy View post tag: PHNSY Share this article View post tag: USS O’Kane
