PivotDoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesText description provided by the architects. Our project is a recovery of the attic of a portion of an apartment building.The apartment building is made up of two blocks and a connecting body. The two blocks look differently even though they were both built in the 60s. Our block used to be inhabited by the families working on the ground floor grocer’s.Save this picture!SectionThe existing block has a complex plan, due to the building within a narrow area. Folds, bevels and narrowings are a consequence of the narrow distances, indeed they were not designed for creative or architectural reasons.Save this picture!© Marcello MarianaWhile the main building is a separate one and is standing on a flat terrain, the renovated block is just before the climbing Bernasconi street (via Bernasconi).The building has a compound shape. It broadens up northwards and has a straight side while and westwards it has a series of folds and bevelled edges.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe main point of our project was the restructuring of the pitched roof and its slope.Our solution was the rotation of the hipped roof (north/south). In order to have windows southwards the hipped roof was rotated so that the whole building gains a proportioned and contained shape. Its layout was furtherly refined thanks to the insertion of a chimneySave this picture!© Marcello MarianaWe first proceeded by redefining and regularising the volume, trying to find a balance despite the original irregural shape. Just a tiny intervention and the result is a new balance in shape and volume.Save this picture!© Marcello MarianaThe muddy colours of the wood and of the surrounding context influenced our choice of the materials in order to give the building some compactness. That’s why we chose thin kerlite tiles. The muddy colours and the tile covering strenghten the compactness of the building.Save this picture!© Marcello MarianaProject gallerySee allShow lessMoleskine Livescribe Notebooks: Analog and Digital Together at LastArchitecture NewsPies Descalzos School / Giancarlo MazzantiSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Marcello Mariana+ 26 Share Houses 2013 Photographs Italy Projects “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

Demand for services “outstrips small charities’ income”

However 32 per cent reported an increase in voluntary income.Over the same time 62 per cent reported an increase in demand for the services.“This steady rise in demand will at some point, probably in the not too distant future, see small charities reach breaking point,” the FSI report says. “Given small charities’ crucial role in delivering local services to local people a funding solution needs to be discussed sooner rather than later.”The report says that initiatives such as the Transition Fund  – under which £100m was set aside for distribution through the Big Lottery Fund to assist small organisations adapted to new funding environments – had simply papered over the cracks.“If the Small Charity Index is correct, these initiatives have only served to mask the deep-rooted problem that funding is flat-lining for small charities,” the report goes on.“Results from the Small Charity Index point to the need for government to continue to show their support through funding initiatives and skills development for those small charities delivering front line services through a mixture of grants and contracts.”The survey results have been published to coincide with the launch of Small Charity Week from 16-21 June. Now in its fifth year, the programme for 2014 includes a ‘policy day’ (offering small charities across the UK the chance to meet with and engage with policy makers, commissioners and influencers to discuss the issues affecting them) a fundraising day and a volunteering day.

Mumia Abu-Jamal: Trump and politics of resentment

first_imgWhen New York billionaire and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump launched into his anti-immigrant tirade against Mexicans crossing the border, he was using a long-known political technique of plugging into the live wire of American resentment of “the other.”Today, it’s Latinos, of course; more precisely, those from the southern borders: Mexicans, Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Hondurans and the like.But, since the 19th century, politicians have used these currents of fear to fuel movements against those who came from abroad. In those days, though, the targets of nativists’ ire were the Irish, Russian Jews, Italians and other Europeans.These forces gave birth to the American Party, a fierce anti-immigrant group that became known popularly as the “Know Nothings.” They formed a third party during the 1850s and ran former U.S. President Millard Fillmore as their unsuccessful candidate.U.S. historian Richard Hofstadter (1910-1970), in his classic work, “The Paranoid Style in American Politics,” argued that much of the energy of the ­anti-immigrant forces stemmed from what might be called “status anxiety,” or the intense insecurities of people unsure of their place in U.S. society, but who could point to others — immigrants — who held weaker positions in society.Furthermore, these anxiety-ridden groups often have mixed feelings of fear and admiration of social elites, and who is more elite than the superrich?Witness the spectacle of Donald Trump, who, without question, is perhaps the richest man ever to run for president — and is a billionaire populist, no less!I wouldn’t get too excited about his place in the polls right now. In 2012, the toast of both press and polls was a pizza executive named Herman Cain. We know how that worked out.But most candidates, especially of the GOP, worship at the throne of the wealthy, for they are the ones they serve.The thousands and millions who rage at Latino immigrants also worship the rich.In Donald Trump they have found their voice. And he has found, in the energies of resentment, undeniable fuel for failure.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Cantaloupe Sickens People

first_img Health officials in Indiana are advising people to throw out cantaloupes because of a salmonella outbreak. Any cantaloupe purchased July 7 or after could be affected. As of Friday, 14 Hoosiers had been infected because of bacteria in the melons, and there are 150 reported cases nationwide. Farms, distributors and retailers in southwest Indiana are being investigated as possible sources of the issues. Kentucky is also investigating, as the state has 50 of its own cases of cantaloupe-linked salmonella.

Vilsack to Travel with Obama to Cuba

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 13, 2016 Vilsack to Travel with Obama to Cuba USDA says Secretary Tom Vilsack will travel with President Obama to Cuba later this month. The trip will be the first visit to Cuba by a sitting U.S. President in nearly 90 years. This will be Secretary Vilsack’s second trip to Cuba. In November of last year, Vilsack led a delegation of U.S. Government officials to Havana in the interest of strengthening bilateral agricultural engagement. During that visit, Vilsack met Cuban leadership along with farmers. USDA says Vilsack will use this second trip to Cuba to discuss opportunities for collaboration in agriculture between the United States and Cuba, to better understand how climate change is affecting agricultural production in Cuba, and to continue to help American businesses interested in exporting to Cuba. The Obama administration will announce more easing of trade and travel restriction on March 17. The President will then travel to Cuba on March 21.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Vilsack to Travel with Obama to Cuba Previous articleIndiana Farmers Get Lower Taxes and Better Roads from 2016 SessionNext articleOil Ends the Week Sharply Higher.

This opportunity should not be missed.”While welcoming the release of journalist Hassan Mohammed Abikar of Radio Quran Karim (The Voice of the Holy Koran) after 19 days in detention, Reporters Without Borders points out that Baidoa-based Radio Warsan has been arbitrarily silenced since 7 January. Abikar, his station’s correspondent in the Lower Shabelle region, has been able to go back to work in Afgoye (30 km outside Mogadishu) but no one has explained why he was held incommunicado for so long after being arrested by government militiamen in the southwestern city of Baidoa.The three-day roundtable on “the promotion and protection of freedom of expression” was held in Mogadishu’s Sahafi Hotel from 19 to 22 January by the NUSOJ, which is Reporters Without Borders’ partner organisation in Somalia. Some 50 delegates from all of southern Somalia’s provinces and from the northern breakaway state of Somaliland took part.The participants concluded their work by issuing a statement calling on the authorities to draft and adopt legislation for the media that adheres to democratic principles, and to facilitate professional and ethical training for journalists. The statement also urged the international community to include media development in its assistance programmes for Somalia. The delegates also resolved to launch the Somali Forum for Freedom of Expression (SOFFE).Reporters Without Borders hails Somali information minister Ali Ahmed Jama Jengeli’s determination to cooperate with the media and the constructive participation of the Director-General of his ministry in the roundtable debates. Jengeli told the journalists that the government needed them. News March 2, 2021 Find out more January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF’s 15 recommendations for ending the four-month-old crackdown on press freedom in Belarus

first_img December 9, 2020 – Updated on December 10, 2020 RSF’s 15 recommendations for ending the four-month-old crackdown on press freedom in Belarus BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesInternational bodies Council of EuropeImprisonedImpunityInternetFreedom of expressionUnited NationsJudicial harassmentViolence RSF_en “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Receive email alerts Recommendations for ending the repression In order to end the crackdown and establish new bases for press freedom in Belarus, RSF is addressing 15 recommendations to the Belarusian authorities and international bodies. They include a request to the European Union to freeze all financial assistance to Belarus for as long as it continues to flout human rights.For the authorities in Belarus :1. In accordance with the recommendations on freedom of expression and freedom of the media that the OSCE rapporteur issued on 5 November under the Moscow Mechanism, RSF recommends that the Belarusian authorities should:Provide journalists and media with a safe and hospitable environment;Guarantee the safety of all journalists and refrain from any persecution linked to their work or any form of obstruction, including seizing and damaging their equipment;Prosecute persons accused of press freedom violations in accordance with international standards;Enable an independent body to quickly investigate all allegations of torture, mistreatment, sexual assault or enforced disappearance;Facilitate accreditation for foreign journalists;Refrain from any interference of Internet access, including mobile Internet, and end the censorship and blocking of news websites and any restriction on bloggers;End the information ministry’s prosecution of the TUT.by news website aimed at no longer recognizing its mass media status, and unblock the 70 websites that are currently inaccessible;Allow independent print media to access printing and distribution services;Stop requiring all media to keep records and to reveal to the authorities the names of persons who post comments; Читать на русском / Read in RussianBelarus has confirmed its status as Europe’s most dangerous country for journalists. Around 370 have been arrested since 9 August just for doing their job and eight are still being held. As the data gathered by RSF and its local partner, the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), shows, the police deliberately use violence against reporters covering demonstrations with the clear aim of gagging the media and making the protests “disappear.” 449VIOLATIONSPress freedom violations have been registered since the start of the Belarusian presidential election campaign on 8 May, but the number has soared since the day after the election, held on 9 August. Violations have quadrupled in the past four months. The authorities have imposed an increasingly hostile climate in which they have not only arrested many journalists arbitrarily, but also carried out searches, withdrawn accreditations massively, censored and disconnected the Internet, and hampered the printing and distribution of newspapers.368ARRESTSOf nearly 370 arrests of journalists between 9 August and 30 November, around 80 have resulted in a prison sentence. The authorities deny journalists the right to cover the events that have shaken the country for the past four months. In almost all the prosecutions, the journalists have been accused of “participating in an illegal demonstration” or “disobeying the police” in an unfair trial with often anonymous or absent prosecution “witnesses.” to go further News Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown June 2, 2021 Find out more News May 28, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information 1/2 ARRESTED JOURNALISTS IS CONVICTEDArrests have led with increasing frequency to conviction and imprisonment. More than a third of all cases of journalists being jailed took place in November. In August, fewer than 10% of arrested journalists were jailed, but the proportion has increased to nearly one out of every two journalists arrested in November. RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Organisation BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesInternational bodies Council of EuropeImprisonedImpunityInternetFreedom of expressionUnited NationsJudicial harassmentViolence Follow the news on Belarus 2. Drop criminal prosecutions and administrative proceedings against journalists who have just been doing their job, and review criminal and administrative decisions already taken against journalists who were just doing their job;3. Facilitate visits to Belarus by the OSCE Rapporteur and United Nations independent experts and facilitate the UN Human Rights Council’s special procedures; 4. Engage in the Council of Europe accession process in which Belarus would undertake to comply with obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights and therefore accept the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights. Belarus could thereby benefit from the technical assistance that the Venice Commission provides on democracy and the rule of law.For European institutions and EU Member States : 5. Offer and increase assistance to threatened journalists and media workers, such as a safe passage through their countries, refuge and medical assistance if necessary.        – European Commission and Council:6. Freeze any financial assistance for Belarus under the European Neighbourhood Instrument* for as long as the common values and universal fundamental values of the rule of law and human rights are not respected.* (except assistance for the promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms by civil society organizations and non-state actors)       – Council of the EU:7. Continue efforts to impose economic sanctions and other restrictive measures on persons or entities involved in or supporting violations of international electoral standards and international human rights law, especially violations of freedom of expression and media freedom.8. Suspend all or part of EU funding in the event of a serious or persistent deterioration in democracy, human rights or the rule of law in Belarus. To this end, speed up adoption of the Regulation of the European Parliament and Council offering this possibility to the Commission under its neighbourhood policy.For the Council of Europe:9. Include the promotion and improvement of press freedom, freedom of expression and pluralism, which have so far been completely absent from the 2019-2021 Action Plan for Belarus, making them one of the priority goals and projects of any further action plans and allocating them the necessary resources.For the OSCE:10. Systematically condemn attacks, intimidation and censorship of journalists and media in Belarus and demand independent and impartial investigations when such violations take place;11. Firmly and actively request implementation of the recommendations on freedom of expression and freedom of the media that the OSCE rapporteur addressed to the Belarusian authorities;12. Create a tool for monitoring measures taken by the Belarusian authorities to establish human rights, democracy and the rule of law.For the UN :13. Systematically condemn attacks, intimidation and censorship of journalists and media in Belarus and demand independent and impartial investigations when such violations take place;14. Work with the Belarusian authorities to facilitate the involvement of UN special procedures in the protection and promotion of human rights in Belarus, especially the procedure of the special rapporteur for freedom of expression;15. Work with the Belarusian authorities so that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights can quickly establish a permanent bureau to provide concrete assistance with changing human rights practices, with special attention to improving freedom of expression, pluralism and media freedom.Ruled since 1994 by Alexander Lukashenko, who has managed to be reelected as president in the first round every five years, Belarus is ranked 153rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. News News Even longer sentencesThe length of time that journalists are detained in Belarus has grown steadily since the presidential election. Sentences keep on getting harsher. In August, a journalist was sentenced to an average of five days in prison. Now the average is 13 days. In another sign of a much more draconian policy, at least seven journalists have been subjected to criminal prosecutions (or under investigation and threatened with such prosecutions) involving the possibility of sentences of several years in prison.62CASES OF TORTURE AND MISTREATMENTAt least 62 journalists have been victims of violence, mistreatment or even torture while detained, according to the BAJ. They include Ruslan Kulevich of Hrodna.life, who was violently arrested in the western city of Hrodna on 11 August and was threatened with being killed although he was wearing a “press” vest. When released two days later, he was hospitalized with fractures to both forearms and concussion caused by the blows he received while held, and he was denied food and medical attention. Despite clear evidence of violence, no investigation was carried out and no one was punished. Police and prison guards act with complete impunity in Hrodna, as elsewhere in Belarus.

Photo credit: John LavittDr. Bill Saleebey at the University Club. Photo credit: John LavittAt the Leadership Luncheon at the University Club of Pasadena, Dr. Bill Saleebey illuminated the skills needed to truly be a successful group leader. On March 20th before a sold-out room of Southern California business leaders and entrepreneurs, the Pasadena native demonstrated the key principles of running an effective group. Once again, the University Club of Pasadena proved to be a worthy contributor to the zeitgeist of the Pasadena social and cultural community as a whole.Through an analysis of group process, Dr. Bill Saleebey drew on his extensive experience as an educator, moderator and group leader in discussing the various techniques for optimizing a meeting. Although every group is different, the energy and presence of a group leader can help define the gathering from the get-go. In the insightful presentation, Dr. Saleebey explained how, “Group leaders know how to own the room and build rapport with an audience right off the bat. By leading an audience in the beginning, a group leader helps to ensure the success of the whole meeting.”As a foremost expert on the psychological and practical aspects of business networking, Dr. Bill Saleebey has been speaking, training and teaching the art of business leadership since 1973. A longtime Bruin, Dr. Saleebey received his Ph.D. in Education with a specialization in Counseling from UCLA. As the author of “Connecting: Beyond the Name Tag” and “Study Skills for Success”, Dr. Saleebey helps executives succeed by employing the most important modern business tool beyond the Internet as well as one of the oldest and most reliable: face-to-face networking.Without question, one of the most essential elements when it comes to running a group is time. How do you accomplish your business and networking goals as a group leader without the pressure of a ticking clock in your head like a time bomb? Dr. Bill Saleebey explained, “When you are dealing with time, be aware of the time without rushing the group. Anything you do in a meeting, you should be setting the guidelines in advance. Effectively managing time is a pervasive element of a capable group leader.”From the audience’s active participation, it was clear they were engaged by the event and the topic at hand. After the presentation, the crowd lingered in the large conference hall for some time after the event, speaking with Dr. Bill Saleebey and mining his wisdom. When you combine Dr. Bill Saleebey’s valuable presentation with the lovely lunch served by the University Club staff, you easily can see why the Leadership Luncheons have been such a longstanding resource for the greater Pasadena community.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.
