Multistorey car park

A multistorey car park or parking garage is a building designed for car parking and where there are a number of floors or levels on which parking takes place. It is an indoor, stacked car park. Parking structures may be heated. Design of parking structures can add considerable cost for planning new developments, can be mandated by cities or states in new building parking requirements; some cities such as London have abolished enacted minimum parking requirements. The earliest known multi-story car park was opened in May 1901 by City & Suburban Electric Carriage Company at 6 Denman Street, central London; the location had space for 100 vehicles over seven floors. The same company opened a second location in 1902 for 230 vehicles; the company specialized in the sale, valeting and on-demand delivery of electric vehicles that could travel about 40 miles and had a top speed of 20 miles per hour. The earliest known parking garage in the United States was built in 1918 for the Hotel La Salle at 215 West Washington Street in the West Loop area of downtown Chicago, Illinois.

It was designed by Roche. The Hotel La Salle was demolished in 1976, but the parking structure remained because it had been designated as preliminary landmark status and the structure was several blocks from the hotel, it was demolished in 2005 after failing to receive landmark status from the city of Chicago. A 49-storey apartment tower, 215 West, has taken its place featuring a parking garage; the movement of vehicles between floors can take place by means of: interior ramps – the most common type exterior ramps – which may take the form of a circular ramp vehicle lifts – the least common automated robot systems – combination of ramp and elevatorWhere the car park is built on sloping land, it may be split-level or have sloped parking. Many car parks are independent buildings dedicated to that use; the design loads for car parks are less than the office building they serve, leading to long floor spans of 55–60 feet that permit cars to park in rows without supporting columns in between. The most common structural systems in the United States for these structures are either prestressed concrete double-tee floor systems or post-tensioned cast-in-place concrete floor systems.

In recent times, car parks built to serve residential and some business properties have been built as part of a larger building underground as part of the basement, such as the parking lot at the Atlantic Station redevelopment in Atlanta. This saves land for other uses, is cheaper and more practical in most cases than a separate structure, is hidden from view, it protects customers and their cars from weather such as rain, snow, or hot summer sunshine that raises a vehicle's interior temperature to high levels. Underground parking of only two levels was considered an innovative concept in 1964, when developer Louis Lesser developed a two-level underground parking structure under six 10-storey high-rise residential halls at California State University, Los Angeles, which lacked space for horizontal expansion in the 176-acre university; the simple two-level parking structure was considered unusual enough in 1964 that a separate newspaper section entitled "Parking Underground" described the parking lot as an innovative "concept" and as "subterranean spaces".

In Toronto, a 2,400 space parking lot below Nathan Phillips Square is one of the world's largest. Car parks which serve shopping centres can be built adjacent to the centre for easier access at each floor between shops and parking. One example is Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, USA, which has two large parking lots attached to the building, at the eastern and western ends. A common position for car parks within shopping centres in the UK is on the roof, around the various utility systems, enabling customers to take lifts straight down into the centre. Examples of such are Festival Place in Basingstoke; these car parks have low ceiling clearances, which restrict access by full-size vans and other large vehicles. On 15 December 2013, a man was killed during a robbery in the parking garage at The Mall at Short Hills in Millburn, New Jersey; the paramedics responding to the shooting were delayed because their ambulance was too large to enter the structure. In the United States, costs for parking garages are estimated to cost between $25,000 per space, with underground parking costing around $35,000 per space.

Parking structures are subjected to the heavy and shifting loads of moving vehicles, must bear the associated physical stresses. Expansion joints are used between sections not only for thermal expansion but to accommodate the flexing of the structure's sections due to vehicle traffic. Seismic retrofits can be applied; some parking structures have collapsed, either during construction or years later. In July 2009 a fourth-floor section failed at the Centergy building in midtown Atlanta, pancaking down and destroying more than 30 vehicles but injuring no-one. In December 2007, a car crashed into the wall of the deck at the SouthPark Mall in Charlotte, North Carolina, weakening it and causing a small collapse which destroyed two cars below. On the same day, one under construction in Jacksonville, Florida collapsed as concrete was being poured on the sixth floor. In November 2008, the sudden collapse of the middle level of a deck in Montreal was preceded by warning signs some weeks before, including cracks an

Identifiers.org

Identifiers.org is a project providing stable and perennial identifiers for data records used in the Life Sciences. The identifiers are provided in the form of Uniform Resource Identifiers. Identifiers.org is a resolving system, that relies on collections listed in the MIRIAM Registry to provide direct access to different instances of the identified records. The Identifiers.org URIs are perennial identifiers, that specify at once the data collection, using the namespaces of the Registry, the record identifier within the collection in the form of a unique resolvable URI. The Identifiers.org resolving system is built upon the information stored in the MIRIAM Registry, a database that stores namespaces assigned to used data collections for the Life Sciences. It transforms an Identifiers.org URI into the various URLs leading to the various instances of the record identified by the URI. Identifiers.org is part of the ELIXIR Interoperability Platform. An Identifiers.org URI is formed of several parts: Protocol.

Identifiers.org URIs are start with "http: /" Data collection. These are namespaces listed in the MIRIAM Registry. For instance "pubmed" for the publication resource pubmed, "ec-code" for the enzyme nomenclature and "go" for gene ontology Record in the collection. For instance "9606" is "3-fluorotoluene" in the collection PubChem, it is "Homo sapiens" in the collection "taxonomy" and it is a social science publication in the collection "pubmed". Optional: Identifiers.org URIs can be suffixed with parameters, for instance imposing which resource to use for resolving, "profiles" that control the resolver's behaviour etc. The systems allows a uniform annotation of datasets; this is integration. Identifiers.org URIs are used to encode the metadata in the standard formats of the COMBINE initiative, such as SBML. In particular, databases such as BioModels Database and Reactome export their data in SBML with cross-references encoded using Identifiers.org URIs. These URIs are used in various semantic web projects such as Bio2RDF, Open PHACTS and the EBI RDF platform Identifiers.org is part of the Interoperability platform of the European life-sciences Infrastructure for biological Information.

Identifiers.org URIs have been developed since 2011 as a resolvable version of the MIRIAM identifiers, developed since 2005, which were of a URN form, not directly resolvable. Identifiers.org URIs are similar to PURLs, albeit providing alternative resolutions for collections with several instances. They are similar to DOIs, but provide human readable collection names, re-use the record identifier assigned by the data provider.

Woolwell

Woolwell is a suburb on the north-east fringe of the city of Plymouth, located just outside the city’s boundaries in the district of the South Hams. It is situated along the A386, close to the boundary of Dartmoor National Park, with good views of the surrounding landscape.

Woolwell has three playgrounds, the largest of these is located next to the Community Centre. There is another in the south-east, adjacent to Cann Wood View

Special Security Division

The Special Security Division is a new 2-star Pakistan Army-led command, raised in September 2016 as a response to major concerns over how to protect the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and its workforce from serious internal and external threats. China expressed its satisfaction with these security arrangements in the sixth Joint Cooperation Committee meeting. SSD consists of 15,000 personnel organised into nine army infantry battalions and six paramilitary wings, the latter funded by the Interior Ministry; the SSD is the land-based counterpart to CPEC's maritime security command, Task-Force 88, raised in December 2016, led by the Pakistan Navy, including personnel from the Pakistan Marines and the Maritime Security Agency.
