Temple Roofing

Church Katopoliani is one of the key remains in the Cyclades. The name probably derives from the name of the town Katapola (a household name on other islands in the Aegean Sea). The name Ekatontapyliani associated contrast to the legend of the 100 ports (ekaton Pyles), which is probably a ordvariant of the place name. According to tradition linked the rising of Panagia temple to saint Eleni (see above).

This is a cruciform basilica with colonnades that shape the aisles and originally had a ceiling of wood. During the reign of Justinian (527-565) were replaced the roof and installed arches and a dome with skylights. The building is complemented by a narthex, a baptismal font and the chapel of Agios Nikolaos, whose architectural elements almost exclusively from ancient buildings. During the post-Byzantine years built Agia Theodosias Temple (1619) on the north outside of the big church and the chapel of Agios Dimitrios on the eastern side of the southern colonnade, and cells.

Ancient Architectural Elements

It was very common to use the ancient architectural elements in the building of Christian temples.

According to estimates, they used more than 2,500 antique architectural elements during erection of Panagias temples, the baptismal font and the chapel of Agios Nikolaos. Marmorpilastrarna available to the right and left of the entrance of the main temple Panagias comes from a neoclassical altar is decorated with triglyphs dedicated to Zeus Eleftherios as stated in the inscription carved into the triglyferna. ZEUS ELEFTHERIOS

All arches above the line of the square pillars from archaic temples, which was at the castle while the architrave of the great temple derives from a temple dated to the Hellenistic period. Parts of the architraves of the temple (40 pieces) was used as a building material in the construction of the Venetian castle (see above). The columns and their foundations from buildings that were erected during the Hellenistic period, which has undergone various modifications and changes during the Byzantine period to be used for the large Christian church. When they built the temple used to ionic festoons from buildings that primarily had been built during the classical period. On the east wall, to the right of the temple, there is a marble slab inscribed with Lord Hari Serapis that probably comes from the island’s Serapeum. The altar was made of a large part of an archaic festoon and four columns dated to the Hellenistic period.

The Archaic Period

At Agios Nikolaos temples have been built in seven Doric capitals and two architrave taken from the temple of the archaic period.

After studies by Professor Gruben considered that an architectural complex used in the construction of a Byzantine church seems to have originated in ancient times. This consisted of a colonnade of Ionic order which shaped at least two corners and surrounding an interior space. The identification of other architectural elements such as structures, apse and the altar led to the hypothesis that the architectural elements belonging to Hestia and Prytaneions shrine. Two inscriptions which can be related to the temple of Hestia strengthens this view.

The baptistery is nine parts of the old architraves used as beams above the side once DEVICES columns. Other parts are built at the middle entrance of the baptistery, on the patio and in the Agios Nikolaos church. On the floor of the nave of the church of Panagia in front of the iconostasis, at 1, 50 meters are preserved two large Ionic columns with foundations built on top of a mosaic floor in high school from the 200-century AD Part of this mosaic floor where the great deeds of Hercules are depicted on display at the museum’s patio.

World of Warships – Armada: Perth


An Australian hunter quiet of British origin.

A cruiser for adventurous and naval cool head champions.

A ship for those who can make quick decisions while strictly follow the battle strategy.

Born in Albion, he incorporated all the best qualities of his brothers in arms, including a resolute temperament and a nature reserve.

Keep the distance? A true warrior would do that ?! Our hunting is not afraid to scratch.

At the same time, it does not come into frontal attack.

The Perth prefers "diplomatic negotiations" within walking distance, using perforating projectiles and explosives, and torpedoes.

Yes, you heard right: this Australian ship has PE projectiles, unlike other British cruisers it can not just "bake" the enemy citadels, but also "bake" their superstructures.

And the silverware would be his eight 152 mm guns.

For the Level VI, the Perth maintains a great rate of fire.

However, this comes at a price: your range of shots is not high, which proves again that our hero should be on the front line every battle.

The cruiser service is to lead your squad and fight for key areas against the destroyers enemies.

I bet none of them will be happy to see Perth.

Speaking of destroyers, the Australian cruiser has much in common with them.

The first thing that comes to mind is the powerful torpedo armament.

There are four torpedoes on each side, and they have good range.

In addition, Perth has a typical British feature: it can launch torpedoes one by one, leaving the enemy no chance to escape.

It is an exceptional weapon for immediate destruction.

The second feature that makes the Perth to be similar to the destroyers is his smokescreen.

Of course, after Mikhail Kutuzov and the British branch, a smoke generator on board a cruiser is not surprising.

But Perth has its own way of using this consumable.

The smokescreen is active for only 10 seconds, but extends the time of 90 seconds.

No need to get the Perth property in smoke, waiting a salvo of torpedoes.

Being a British ship, he feels at home in the smoke.

As a shadow warrior, Perth can move quietly, sneak up on enemies, and crush them with fiery attacks.

But do not forget that our hero is a lightweight fighter.

He mainly relies on accurate shots and quick maneuvers, not thick armor, which again makes it similar to the destroyers.

You can pay dearly for a mistake.

Even with an on-board repair service, will not compensate for the great loss of HP.

However, the great blind and rudder rotation time makes Perth a difficult target.

It is small and dangerous, like a poisoned dagger, which can also be pointed to the commander of skills and ship upgrades.

On the 1st row of the commander skills, we recommend choosing the Basic Survival capacity.

As the Australian ship is not very effective against aircraft, Shooting Basic training will save the situation.

In the 2nd row, the choice between specialist and Mira Specialty in Torpedoes Armaments depend only the preferences of your playing style.

Last Effort and Fire Prevention may also be useful in different situations.

Remember it if one skill point become disorganized.

In the 3rd row, the Superintendent is the best choice.

The best part of our battle tactics is based on good use of smoke and hydroacoustic, then an additional charge of consumables is invaluable.

In the 4th row – in the absence of AA guns – Survival in Perito is the best.

In the 5th – Specialist Concealment.

The last thing to remember about skills is that, despite its origin, Perth belongs to the Australian Navy.

So it can not be used to train British cruisers commanders.

Speaking of updates, the best strategy is to improve the artillery and maneuverability.

In the first and second wave, the Main Armament and Mira systems are recommended.

In the fourth – the Direction box.

And finally, to strengthen the set, choose the Damage Control System.

As a result, we have a light cruiser of the first line, and one of the best fighters to the main areas among its races, a cunning hunter destroyers, and a real poison for ships of other types.

First, low survival combined with aggressive gameplay may seem like a bad joke.

But be careful when planning and using consumables will Perth a great choice for brave, ambitious and challenging players.

Why Black Roofing Is On The Hit List

Dark roofs may be a popular roofing solution, however do they contribute to increased heating within a suburb?  Interestingly, some Perth developers have now banned dark roof colours in many of their developments sighting the Urban heat island effect.  One angry grandmother has decided to champion the cause by calling upon the State Government to make legislative changes to assist with the problem.

Perth Roof Collapse

perth roof damage

WATERLOGGING of the Perth Children’s Hospital, already plagued by asbestos contamination, has caused part of the building’s ceiling to collapse.

A source involved in the project told PerthNow that two sections of the ceiling collapsed after becoming waterlogged from recent heavy rainfall in the past week.

The material crashed from the top floor, with the source saying that if anyone had been underneath the falling panels that “they would have been killed”.

Photographs received by PerthNow this afternoon show signs of rubble on the ground floor, resulting from the ceiling sections collapsing.

The source said the ceiling sheeting could not cope with the weight of water that had seeped into the panels.

The source also said it was feasible that the structural integrity of the sheeting had been “compromised” due to asbestos remediation work carried out on the atrium panels.

Emergency meetings were apparently being held late this afternoon to try to resolve the latest crisis which has hit the PCH building site.

How Maintenance Equals Prevention

Gutter Maintenance Equals Prevention

Rain gutter maintenance is one of the most important home maintenance jobs to perform on the outside of your property. Neglecting gutter maintenance might result in damage and costly repairs of the soffit, fascia, house wall (exterior and interior), roof decking surfaces, and other structures surrounding your property.

Rain gutters have to be cleaned more regularly if there are trees surrounding your home or in neighboring yards. During the autumn, when those trees begin shedding their leaves, you may need to have the gutters cleaned several times.

Make sure to perform your closing gutter and downspout maintenance / check-up by the end of the autumn, when all tree leaves have evaporated. Assess your downspouts – the most effective way to figure out how your gutters are performing is to always go outside during the rain. Continue reading
