DOB ramps up façade enforcement following architect’s death

first_imgErica Tishman, 60, was killed Dec. 17, when she was struck by a chunk of a 17-story office building at 729 Seventh Avenue. Eight months prior to the incident, the city identified damaged terra-cotta above the building’s 15th floor and issued a violation against the building’s owner, Himmel + Meringoff Properties. But the owner didn’t install a sidewalk shed or other protective equipment to protect passersby.The incident raised questions about the city’s enforcement system. An analysis by The Real Deal found that the city is owed nearly $3 million for certain façade-related infractions. Following Tishman’s death, the DOB inspected 1,331 façades that had been flagged for safety issues. The agency announced Monday that 220 of those properties didn’t have adequate protections for pedestrians.“New Yorkers should know that we are out in force holding owners feet to the fire, so they get repair work done as quickly as possible while still protecting the public,” DOB Commissioner Melanie La Rocca said in a statement. “With our enhanced inspection protocols and expanded staff, owners who choose to skirt their obligations will face swift consequences.”In addition to new inspections, the DOB is doubling the number of its façade inspectors (the agency currently has 11). The DOB also plans to conduct random reviews of 25 percent of buildings taller than six stories — in addition to the five-year inspection that’s already required.A hearing is also being held Monday on proposed rule changes that would increase the amount of experience and responsibilities required for exterior wall inspectors and raise certain façade penalties.

If not, city contractors will be sent to perform the work at the owner’s expense. The agency will then perform a follow-up inspection after 90 days to ensure the protection is still in place and that work has commenced to correct the issue.Read moreAfter fatality, analysis shows façade rules widely ignored across cityWoman killed by falling façade at Himmel + Meringoff’s Midtown office buildinglast_img read more

Soulive Welcomes Duane Betts, Trey Anastasio Band Horns & More At LOCKN’ Late-Night [Videos/Photos]

first_img[Video: Anton van Peppen][Video: Anton van Peppen] Late on Saturday night, Soulive took the stage in LOCKN’ Festival’s Garcia’s Forest following Tedeschi Trucks Band, Trey Anastasio, and Doyle Bramhall II‘s full recreation of the classic Derek and the Dominos album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs.Soulive and Peter Shapiro, the co-founder of LOCKN and owner of Brooklyn Bowl (among other venues), have a long history of curating memorable, guest-filled performances by way of their long-running Bowlive residency at the Brooklyn venue. With Soulive’s LOCKN’ late-night positioned in a prime Saturday post-midnight slot on the schedule, expectations were high for similar collaborative fireworks in Garcia’s Forest.The set was billed as Soulive ft. The Infinity Horns, a brass section nobody seemed to know much about ahead of the show. However, this mysterious outfit turned out to be just one of several exciting guests to appear during the set. The core Soulive trio—comprised of guitarist Eric Krasno, keyboardist Neal Evans, and drummer Alan Evans—kicked things off in the Forest with a handful of originals and staple instrumental covers like The Beatles‘ “Eleanor Rigby”.Guitarist Danny Mayer, a frequent Krasno collaborator and current member of Star Kitchen, was the first to join in, helping the band tear through their searing arrangement of Jimi Hendrix‘s “Manic Depression”. Next, guitarist Duane Betts—son of the Allman Brothers Band‘s Dickey Betts—took the stage to link up with Krasno for the classic dual-guitar gymnastics of the Allmans’ “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed”. This rendition of “Liz Reed” had a similarly powerful effect on those in the crowd and those on the stage. As Duane joked when he stepped to the mic to address the crowd after the song, “That was a f*ckin workout.”[Photo: Dave Vann]Finally, Soulive called the Infinity Horns to the stage, and three musicians strode on to join them with their hoods covering their heads and faces. The guest horn section eventually took off their hoods to reveal that they were, in fact, the Trey Anastasio Band Horns: trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick, trombonist Natalie Cressman, and saxophonist James Casey. The horns remained onstage throughout the rest of the performance, which wrapped up just after 3 a.m.[Photo: Dave Vann]Scroll down to watch a selection of clips from the performance:last_img read more

Vermont statewide school assessment results show some improvement

first_imgVermont elementary and middle school students made significant gains in writing compared to the previous year, while Vermont high school students fell back slightly, according to the fall results from the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) released today by the Vermont Agency of Education (AOE). Vermont public school students in grades three through eight and grade eleven were tested in reading and mathematics. In math and reading, it was the Vermont high school students who saw improvement, while the lower grades were essentially flat. Students in grades five, eight and eleven were also administered writing assessments. The tables that follow provide a comparison of this year’ s test scores to the results that were released a year ago.  ReadingMathGrade LevelFall 2012Fall 2011Fall 2012Fall 2011Elementary/Middle School (3-8)73%74%65%65%High School (11)74%73%38%36% WritingGrade LevelFall 2012Fall 2011Elementary School51%46%Middle School 66%59%High School 46%48%The percentage of fifth graders who scored in the proficient range in writing increased five percentage points, from 46% proficient in 2011 to 51% proficient in 2012. Writing at the eighth grade level, proficient scores increased seven points, from 59% last year to 66% this fall. The percentage of high school students who scored in the proficient range dropped two points, from 48% to 46%. Test scores for reading and math have not changed significantly from 2011. The percentage of students in grades three through eight who scored in the proficient range in reading went down one percentage point, from 74% in 2011 to 73% in 2012. Reading results at the high school level were the exact opposite of elementary/middle results, with the percentage of students scoring in the proficient range increasing one point, from 73% in 2011 to 74% this year. Math scores at the elementary/middle level were unchanged at 65% of students scoring in the proficient range. Math results for high school students went up two percentage points, from 36% proficient last year to 38% proficient in the most recent results. ‘ High school mathematics continues to be high on the Agency’ s and Governor’ s list of priorities. While we only saw a slight increase in high school math scores, our educators are serious about improving our students’ understanding and passion for math,’ said Secretary of Education Armando Vilaseca. ‘ If Vermont’ s students are going to be ready to continue their education beyond high school and be successful in the 21st century, they’ re going to need stronger math skills and knowledge. A 2% increase is not enough.’ Vilaseca said. Michael Hock, AOE State Director of Educational Assessment, pointed out that writing is the bright spot in this year’ s results. ‘ The importance of writing skills cuts across all areas of the curriculum,’ Hock said. ‘ For example, we know that our most successful schools have writing programs that focus on all content areas, even math and science. The impact of these programs is consistently evident in those schools’ test scores.’  The NECAP exams are given in collaboration with Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. These exams are designed to specifically assess how well Vermont students have learned the skills and content contained in Vermont’ s Grade Expectations. This is the seventh year of results on the NECAP exams for grades three through eight, and the fifth year for grade 11. As required under the No Child Left Behind Act, a Science assessment is given each May in grades four, eight and eleven. For the complete data of 2012 NECAP scores, visit: http://education.vermont.gov/new/html/pgm_assessment/data.html#necap(link is external).  For school-by-school results, visit: http://education.vermont.gov/new/html/pgm_assessment/performance/necap_p…(link is external). % Proficient % Proficientlast_img read more

Gophers win home opener with offense

first_img“It always feels better to play a game … rather than playing inter-squad or a practice,” head coach John Anderson said. “It was a good day, not because we won but because I think we got some good work in today.” He allowed one hit and walked two while striking out two and induced a double play to end the fourth inning. The Gophers have another road series before returning home again, but McDevitt said the team was thankful to end its long streak of road games. Campbell getting the start. Campbell allowed one hit and issued two walks in three scoreless innings. Minnesota recorded 16 hits from 11 different players in a 10-3 victory over Augsburg at Siebert Field, moving the team to 10-8 on the season. Once Campbell left the mound freshman right-hander Jake Stevenson made his second appearance of the season and held Augsburg scoreless in two innings of work. Minnesota started the game with a three-run first inning, with senior first baseman Connor Schaefbauer driving in two of the runs. Schaefbauer recorded a double in his next at-bat in the third inning to score another run, and redshirt junior outfielder Jordan Smith, senior outfielder Dan Motl and freshman shortstop Terrin Vavra all added RBI singles in the third to put the Gophers up 7-0. “I think we’re all sick of traveling and being on the road,” McDevitt said. “It was a pretty nice day, and it was fun to be around the boys and play here.” The Gophers added two more runs in the fifth inning after freshman catcher Cole McDevitt hit a leadoff double and later scored on the second out of the inning.  The Gophers cycled through five pitchers in the game, with junior right-hander Cody  Gophers win home opener with offenseMinnesota totaled 16 hits and 10 runs against Augsburg in Tuesday’s game. Emily PolglazeMarch 23, 2016Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintIn the Gophers home opener Tuesday, the offense looked refreshed despite kicking off the season with 17 consecutive road games. “For the most part, all of them did a good job executing more than one pitch, not just a fastball,” Anderson said. “I thought we pitched with some tempo on the mound, and I was encouraged.” Freshman left-handed Nick Lackney made his third appearance of the season in the ninth and ended the game with a clean inning that featured two strikeouts. Augsburg answered by scoring a run in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to make the score 10-3.  Redshirt junior Tim Shannon pitched the seventh and eighth for the Gophers and allowed two earned runs off of two hits. “It’s something we’ve stressed all year, trying to set the tone offensively,” Schaefbauer said. “We want to be up as early and as often as we can to give our pitchers some room to work.” Redshirt junior Matt Stemper added an RBI single to put the Gophers up 10-0. Schaefbauer batted another run in during the fourth inning with a sacrifice fly, giving him a career-high four RBIs in the game.last_img read more
