SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Ride services company Uber Technologies Inc’s [UBER.UL] head of operations, Ryan Graves, a long-time ally of former chief executive Travis Kalanick, is stepping down from his full-time job at the company, according to a copy of a letter from Graves seen by Reuters.

Graves will, however, continue to serve on Uber’s board, it said.

The company is looking for a new chief executive after Kalanick was pressured to step down, and Graves said that he preferred to make his own move before the new leader was chosen.

“It’s really important to me that this transition doesn’t take away from the importance of the onboarding process of our new CEO, whoever that might be,” he wrote.

Graves was one of the first employees at Uber and is a significant shareholder.

The memo was reported earlier by CNBC.

Smoke and pollution from construction equipment


Heavy duty construction equipment machines and vehicles guzzle fuel and pump out a large amount of smoke from their exhaust and chimneys, thus polluting the environment. This construction vehicle is belching out thick black smoke into the air, undoubtedly from adulterated diesel, another culprit of pollution in India.

Caterpillar introduced the first phase of its incentive program in early May, a few weeks after identifying Deerfield , Ill.,as the location for its new global headquarters.

📅   Thu July 27, 2017 – National Edition

Caterpillar introduced the first phase of its incentive program in early May, a few weeks after identifying Deerfield as the location for its new global headquarters.

Caterpillar introduced the first phase of its incentive program in early May, a few weeks after identifying Deerfield as the location for its new global headquarters.


An incentive program established to encourage the sale of homes owned by relocated Caterpillar Inc. employees will expand next week to in some instances also cover purchases of property from people moving into the new home.

Beginning Aug. 1, Caterpillar will buy the house of anyone who purchases a home worth $300,000 or more in the company’s relocation program — as long as the transaction represents at least a 25 percent increase in value between the old and new properties.

“We want to further incentivize the sale of Caterpillar relocation homes,” said company spokeswoman Rachel Potts. “We hope by offering this program we take away one more deterrent from buying a new home in the community.”

Caterpillar introduced the first phase of its incentive program in early May, a few weeks after identifying Deerfield , Ill.,as the location for its new global headquarters.

Under that program, which remains in effect, anyone who purchased a house belonging to a relocated Caterpillar employee was eligible to be reimbursed up to 3 percent of the final sale price to cover specific items such as closing costs, home improvements or an interest rate buy down. The incentive is subject to lender approval, and will continue through 2018.

“We wanted to minimize the impact of our headquarters move on the Peoria area real estate market,” Potts said.

About 40 percent of homes in Caterpillar’s relocation program — which includes properties of all relocated employees, not just those moving to work in the new headquarters — have sold since the incentive took effect, Potts said.

Home sales in the region overall, however, tumbled almost 10 percent in the second quarter. The number of homes sold in the three-month period that ended in June declined by 9.8 percent from the same period a year ago, according to the Peoria Area Association of Realtors.

The group has previously reported that homes listed above $300,000 have been slower to sell in the region, with greater demand in the $175,000 to $225,000 price range.

“It was determined ($300,000) was the appropriate starting point for our program,” Potts said.

Caterpillar’s Deerfield office opened in early July but is not yet fully staffed. The company expects about 100 people to work there by the end of the year. Once fully operational in 2018, about 300 people will work in the new headquarters.

Concrete mixer machinery at construction site in India


A concrete mixer (also commonly called a cement mixer) is a device that homogeneously combines cement, aggregate such as sand or gravel, and water to form concrete. A typical concrete mixer uses a revolving drum to mix the components. For smaller volume works portable concrete mixers are often used so that the concrete can be made at the construction site, giving the workers ample time to use the concrete before it hardens. An alternative to a machine is mixing concrete or cement by hand. This is usually done in a wheelbarrow; however, several companies have recently begun to sell modified tarps for this purpose.

The concrete mixer was invented by Columbus industrialist Gebhardt Jaeger.

Antoine Rémy Polonceau.

(JPG)
1778 – 1847
As Chief Engineer at Mont Blanc; Polonceau worked on the Simplon, Lautaret and Mont-Cenis Alpine roads between 1808 and 1812. He then became interested in factories, peat bogs and waterways as director of waterways in the Département of Seine-et-Oise and the Seine navigation department.

But Polonceau distinguished himself by his ingenuity in many other areas too.

He introduced the macadam pavement to France and recommended use of road rollers to improve stone roads.
He is cheifly remembered today for his original and inexpensive innovations for cast-iron bridges, aiming for uniform elasticity and light components in preference to the heavy rigid structures then in vogue. After the small three-arch bridge he designed in 1822 at Maisons near Paris, he applied his patents to the construction of iron and cast iron bridges for a Parisian contractor.

The Pont du Carrousel, built between 1831 and 1834, is the perfect illustration of his thoeries and shows that a bridge can withstand heavy loads while using much less cast iron than Southwark bridge, for example. Hollow cast iron arches mean the structure is light, solid and economical, as Polonceau described in a paper published in 1839.

After 1830, he was engaged in design work for several railway lines, including the Paris-Orléans, Orléans-Bordeaux and Paris-Rouen lines, and as far as Le Havre and Dieppe along the Seine valley, the route which was to be chosen later.

His large number of publications and technical notes also bear witness to his immense curiosity in a large number of topics, including hailstones of unusual shapes and sizes, kashmir goats, the drainage and cultivation of forests, bitumen and its various uses, the harvesting of hay, improving the regimen of the river Yvette and the operation of the Grignon School of Agriculture (which he founded in 1827), the use of water in agriculture, windmills and even Swiss cows!

Later in life he became profoundly deaf and retired to the Franche-Comté region where he spent most of his time working on agricultural improvements.

Heavy Construction News – #Construction #news today

TAIPEI Startup Faraday Future said it would move production of its planned luxury electric SUV to a new site, virtually scrapping a stalled $1 billion Las Vegas factory amid deepening financial woes of key investor Chinese entrepreneur Jia Yueting.

Faraday is part of a network of young electric vehicle (EV) firms in China and the United States backed by Jia, who has said his company LeEco – that grew from a Netflix-like video website to a business empire spanning consumer electronics to cars within 13 years – is facing a severe shortage of cash after expanding too fast and in too many directions.

Struggling to support goals that included beating Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors (TSLA.O) in premium EV making, Jia is now trying to ride out the cash crunch by taking measures such as halting work on the Las Vegas factory and selling a Silicon Valley property less than a year after buying it from Yahoo Inc YHOO.O.

On the latest decision to shift production of Faraday’s luxury electric SUV FF 91 to a new site, the startup said: “This will allow product production to be realized faster, as well as allow our future strategy to be implemented more effectively.”

For LeEco, this marks a second major setback to its ambition to become a major EV manufacturer after it recently pulled out of a joint project with British sports carmaker Aston Martin to develop RapidE electric car.

Faraday had initially planned to open the Las Vegas factory late in 2017, with a product portfolio of seven models – an estimate that was later slashed to two, including the FF 91.

Jia, who posted the Faraday statement on his social media account, did not name the new FF 91 production location. Faraday will continue to own the Nevada factory site.

The FF 91 has been described by its designer as “weird-pretty” and Faraday executives say it will be the most technologically advanced vehicle of its kind on the market when it goes into production in early 2018. But cash shortages have raised questions about the company’s prospects.

According to estimates from mutual fund investors, LeEco could see the market value of its listed unit, Leshi Internet Information & Technology Corp Beijing (300104.SZ), fall around $2.5 billion should its shares resume trading.

The company is set to hold an extraordinary shareholders’ meeting on July 17 in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.

Paul Matt, 85, who died on June 30, had a 65-year career building more than 450 structures, including Southern California icons such as the Skirball Cultural Center, The Broad, the Petersen Automotive Museum, the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Beverly Hills and the Wilshire Boulevard Temple restoration.

“My father loved his work and the people he collaborated with,” said Steve Matt, CEO of MATT Construction, Santa Fe Springs, Calif., in a statement. “During his recent battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, he continued to apply his amazing passion for building.” After working 22 years at C.L. Peck and joining the firm’s board of directors, Paul Matt left to co-found MATT Construction in 1991. Last year, he told ENR that he formed his fledgling company around the idea that, if a project is “difficult to build or even close to impossible to build, there’s not going to be many people competing for it.”

In 2015, Matt won the ENR California Legacy Award. In a nomination letter for the award, architect Moshe Safdie wrote, “Matt brings unique qualities to the collaboration between contractor, architect, engineer and owner.” Further, Matt “invests in an effort to understand the project’s objectives and comes forward with innovations which are both effective and economical,” Safdie added.

To cite one example, Matt employed experimental mock-ups and new forming methods to deliver the Louis Kahn-designed Salk Institute for Biological Studies, in La Jolla.

Nepal - Bhaktapur - Lion At Durbar Square - 32bb

IMPORTANT
All my 2015 pictures of Nepal are taken shortly before the heavy earthquake in April 2015! Most of these buildings are now damaged!

To me this is the real tragedy of this year! I wished the German Government had given money to poor Nepal for repairing this Heritage Sites instead of waisting Billions of Euro for the Millions of Muslim Invaders coming from Middle East and Afrika to Germany! They call them refugees – no, that are invaders!
______________________________________________

Bhaktapur (Nepali: भक्तपुर), literally translates to Place of devotees. Also known as Bhadgaon or Khwopa (Newar: ख्वप Khwopa), it is an ancient Newar city in the east corner of the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal, about 13 km from the capital city, Kathmandu. It is located in Bhaktapur District in the Bagmati Zone.

Bhaktapur was the largest of the three Newar kingdoms of the Kathmandu Valley, and was the capital of Nepal during the great ‘Malla Kingdom’ until the second half of the 15th century. Today it is the third largest city in the Kathmandu Valley, with a population of more than 80,000, of which the vast majority are still Newars. Historically more isolated than the other two kingdoms, Kathmandu and Patan, Bhaktapur has a distinctly different form of Nepal Bhasa language.

Bhaktapur has the best preserved palace courtyards and old city center in Nepal, and is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its rich culture, temples, and wood, metal and stone artworks. This is supported by the restoration and preservation efforts of German-funded Bhaktapur Development Project (BDP).

The city is famous for special type of curd called "Ju Ju(king) dhau(curd). It is experienced by the curd makers that the taste of curd prepared in this location cannot be found elsewhere all over Nepal.

ETYMOLOGY
KHWOPA is the ancient name of Bhaktapur. The term "Bhaktapur" (Sanskrit/Nepali: भक्तपुर) refers to "The City Of Devotees". This Bhaktapur City is also known as "Khwopa" (Nepal Bhasa: ख्वप) or "Bhadgaon" (Nepali:भादगाँउ) or "Ancient Newari Town" throughout the Kathmandu Valley. "Kh0apa" actually refers to the masks which are believed to have been worn by gods and goddesses. Bhaktapur is popular for different forms of mask dances based on lives of different deities and therefore, it was named "Khwapa" which later came to become just "Khwopa," which is also near to meaning masks.

HISTORY
It is the home of traditional art and architecture, historical monuments and craft works, magnificent windows, pottery and weaving industries, excellent temples, beautiful ponds, rich local customs, culture, religion, festivals, musical mystic and so on. Bhaktapur is still an untouched as well as preserved ancient city that is itself a world to explore for tourists.

From time immemorial it lay on the trade route between Tibet and India. This position on the main caravan route made the town rich and prosperous.

DEMOGRAPHICS
At the time of the 2001 Nepal census it had a population of 72,543. The male inhabitants of this city wear a special type of cap called the Bhadgaunle Topi Nyatapola.

LANDMARKS
LAYAKU (DURBAR SQUARE)
Bhaktapur Durbar Square is a conglomeration of pagoda and shikhara-style temples, mostly dedicated to Hindu gods and goddesses grouped around a 55-window palace of brick and wood. The square is one of the most charming architectural showpieces of the valley as it highlights the ancient arts of Nepal. The golden effigies of the kings perched on the top of stone monoliths, the guardian deities looking out from their sanctuaries, the wood carvings in every place — struts, lintels, uprights, tympanums, gateways and windows — all seem to form a well-orchestrated symphony.

The royal palace was originally situated at Dattaraya square and was only later moved to the Durbar square location. The square in Bhaktapur was severely damaged by an earthquake in 1934 and hence appears more spacious than the ones at Kathmandu and Patan.

NYATAPOLA TEMPLE
Nyatapola Temple is a 5-story pagoda located in Bhaktapur, Nepal. The temple was erected by Nepali King Bhupatindra Malla during a 5-month period from late 1701 into 1702. It is the temple of Siddha Laxmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity.

BHAIRAB NATH TEMPLE
This is another pagoda temple of lord Bhairab, the dreadful aspect of Lord Shiva. It stands a short distance away from the temple of Nyatapola and was originally constructed by King Jagat Jyoti Malla on a modest scale. It was later remodelled by King Bhupatindra Malla, a zealous lover of the arts, into what it is now a three-storeyed temple.

DATTATRAYA TEMPLE
The temple of Dattatraya is as old as the Palace of Fifty-five Windows. Consecrated by King Yakshya Malla in 1427 AD, this temple, according to popular belief, was built out of the trunk of a single tree. It was subsequently repaired and renovated by King Vishwa Malla in 1458 AD.

Just beside temple is a monastery (Math) with exquisitely carved peacock windows. These famous windows were carved during the reign of King Vishwa Malla. The monastery is full of artistic facades of latticed windows and engraved columns.

CHANGU NARAYAN TEMPLE
Changu Narayan is an ancient Hindu temple located near the village of Changunarayan in the Kathmandu Valley on top of a hill at the eastern end of the valley. It is 6 kilometres to the north of Bhakathapur and 22 kilometres from Kathmandu. The temple is one of the oldest Hindu temples of the valley, and is believed to have been constructed first in the 4th century. Changu Narayan is the name of Vishnu, and the temple is dedicated to him. A stone slab discovered in the vicinity of the temple dates to the 5th century, and is the oldest such stone inscription discovered in Nepal. It was rebuilt after the old temple was devastated. Many stone sculptures here date to the Licchavi period. Changu Narayan Temple is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.

The temple is a double-roofed structure where the idol of Lord Vishnu in his incarnation as Narayana is deified. The exquisitely built temple has intricate roof struts showing multi-armed Tantric deities. A kneeling image of Garuda (dated to the 5th century), the vahana or vehicle of Vishnu with a snake around its neck, faces the temple. The gilded door depicts stone lions guarding the temple. Gilded windows also flank the door. A conch and a disc, symbols of Vishnu, are carved on the two pillars at the entrance. Non-Hindus are not allowed inside the temple.

TA PUKHA (SIDDHA POKHARI)
Ta Pukhu (Siddha Pokhari) is a big rectangular water pond near the main city gate. It was built during the reign of King Yakshya Malla in the early 15th century and is associated with a number of myths. From this spot a wide range of snowy peaks are visible on clear days.

KAILASHNATH MAHADEV STATUE
Kailashnath Mahadev is the World’s Tallest Lord Shiva statue. The height of this statue is 143 feet high and is situated 20 km from Kathmandu, epal. The statues construction work was started in 2004 and was completed in 2012. The statue’s inauguration took place on the 21st of June ’12. This statue stands on the 32nd position in the list of all statues by height in the whole world. It has been made of copper, cement, zinc, and steel. To make this gigantic structure possible there were many professional workers and statue makers from India.

FESTIVAL
Bhaktapur is also known as city of festivals and celebrations. The city celebrates festivals each month starting from new year festival to the Holi puni at the end of the year.

– Bisket Jatra (New year festival)
This ancient annual festival of bhaktapur takes place at the New Year of the Bikram Sambat calendar. A few days before the New Year, usually at Chaitra 27 or Chaitra 28, if 31 days in month, the goddess ‘bhadrakali’ and the god ‘bhairab’ are enshrined in their raths, or immense chariots & pulled through the narrow streets of Bhaktapur by crowds of young men.

The chariots rest at certain time-honored places in the city and people come out to throw offerings of flower, rice, coins and red sindur powder. On the last day of the old year a towering wooden pole known as ‘ lyesing dha: or lingo’ is erected at the edge of town. Long banners hang from the pole, symbolizing snakes – Nag and nagini. On new year’s day, the erected pole is brought down symbolizing victory over evil! People enjoy New year day along with victory over evils. On baisakh 5, the chariot is again pulled to narrow street of bhaktapur and brought to its origin place, Taumadhi square marking end of Bisket Jatra.

– Kumar Khasti (Sithi Nakha)
Before modern piping system, wells and kuwas were the basis for water supply in bhaktapur. In this auspicious day, people clean wells and worship Naag favoring good fall in monsoon. They celebrate by eating delicious delicacy like bara and chatamari.

– Gathamaga charya
Gathamaga is made up of straw that symbols a devil. Locals make gathamaga in their locality and burn fire to remove devils of their locality. It is also said that mosquitos loses its one leg in this day.

– Sa: Paaru (Gai Jatra)
The celebration of Gai Jatra Bhaktapur is interesting among Kathmandu and Lalitpur. In this day, Tall bamboo poles wrapped in cloth and topped horn of straw and an umbrella is carried around the town in memory of dead. The photo of dead is hung in this pole called Ta macha.

Also a colorful procession known as Ghing tang gishi is main attraction of this festival. People enjoy and dance in beats of music and play with stick in accordance to the beat. People decorate themselves in mask, paints and even in female outfits.

GUNLA
Gunla is the name of 10th month of Nepal Era calendar. It is sacred month dedicated to Lord Buddha celebrated in Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.

But In Bhaktapur, last day of Gunla Panchadan is celebrated differently. The Five Buddhas are brought to Taumadhi square accompanied with Gunla Baja, a special musical instrument played only in Gunla and Buddhas are rounded around bhaktapur town.

– Pulu Kisi (Indra Jatra)
The son of Lord of heaven, is believed to have been kidnapped by a devil named Maisasur who then tied Indra’s son in a pole and killed. Indra was shocked to hear his son’s death and sent an elephant, pulukisi to find and kill Maisasur. But legend says Pulukisi couldn’t find maisur till date. This jatra is a play to that legendary story where pulu kisi is rounded the town to search for Maisasur.

– Sithi Nakha
In Bhaktapur a palanquin with an image of the hindu goddess Bhagawati is carried in colorful procession through Nyatapol square this day.

2015 EARTHQUAKE
The Magnitude 7.8 2015 Nepal earthquake that struck on 25 April 2015 damaged 116 heritages in the historic town of Bhaktapur. Of them, 67 were completely damaged while 49 suffered from partial damages. The quake has badly damaged the Durbar square, a significant heritage site included in the UNESCO world heritage list. The main premises of Taleju Temple here also witnessed damages in the disaster.

The building of the municipality office, temples of Rameshwor, Batsala, Narayan, Siddilaxmi, Biswaroopa, Siddiganesh, Sweetbhairav, Siva Mahadev, Degaina, sattal, pati and pujari mathas were damaged by the quake.

The reconstruction and new construction of the damaged heritages will cost over Rs 293 million, underlining the need of starting the renovation soon.

The Magnitude 8.4 (1934 Nepal–Bihar earthquake) demolished several buildings that were never rebuilt, however they can be seen in the earlier drawings. Chyasilin Mandap has been rebuilt.
