Revisiting decisions with the clients back and forth made bespoke architecture for its users a nourishing experience of participation. Rather unexpectedly, the result is an interesting correlation of balance between expectations and propositions.Save this picture!Sección+ 25StructureStrictly speaking, an A-frame house, this typology related to mountain building in Chile is scrutinized. Two geometrically independent volumes –rectangle and triangle- are tested and proportioned to preserve plainness. The first in reinforced concrete becomes the base, containing and blending with the terrain whilst providing support to its pristine counterpart. Inside the A-frame, in stark contrast with the context, a proportioned void of timber trusses provides ambient warmth to its occupiers. This graceful craft buttresses on a concrete sleigh, which in both extremes folds upwards hiding the inverted beams and creating a distance against the striking landscape. The result is a platform detached from the ground to deliver lightness -and a log-piling gap- against the ground. A wooden stair in the far end of the floorplan, vertically connects both volumes, which in addition to the strict control over the windows, make this house a continuous experience of tension and dominium of the landscape.Save this picture!© Felipe Camus+ 25EnergyThermally wise it is a highly insulated unitary volume with a controlled perimeter. The Retreat portrays a substantial sun-oriented glazed façade, which captures the abundant winter radiation transforming it in heat and storing it in the thermally massive concrete elements. Openings towards colder orientations are minimised whilst considerable insulation is specified in the fabric.Save this picture!© Felipe CamusProject gallerySee allShow lessFoster + Romero Alliance Wins Competition to Design the Mexico City Airport ExpansionArchitecture NewsUNIQLO Le Marais / WonderwallSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Police violence at Target store denounced

first_imgThe organizations Equality for Flatbush (E4F) and the New York People’s Power Assembly held an Aug. 3 press conference and community speak-out against racial profiling and police violence in the Flatbush and East Flatbush areas of Brooklyn, N.Y.The spark for this action, held in front of the Flatbush Junction Target store, was New York Police Department violence against Alando Brissett in the store on July 25. Brissett family members participated in the press conference and speak-out.On the evening of July 25, Brissett, a 23-year-old Black man, was violently attacked by NYPD officers at the Target. The incident stemmed from Brissett simply asking an employee for a receipt of his transaction after using the bottle redemption services.Imani Henry, executive director of E4F, stated: “Target’s management needs to tell our community what its so-called ‘safety concerns’ were that led to them calling the police on Alando Brissett. Our understanding is that there were no threats of violence or a physical altercation prior to the cops arriving on July 25. Why would Target’s management allow a verbal disagreement over a receipt escalate to the point where a young Black man almost lost his life?“Given the 70th Precinct’s long history of police brutality and murder in Flatbush,” continued Henry, “why would Target be so reckless and jeopardize not only Brissett’s safety, but that of all the shoppers in the store that night? Both the NYPD and Target need to be held accountable.”Flatbush resident Michael Rolland captured the NYPD’s assault on video. It showed two NYPD officers violently beat Brissett on his back and head with their fists, while three other cops pinned his body to the floor, using their knees to hold his head down. Target shoppers were shouting for the cops to stop and were crying out that Brissett had done nothing wrong.Soon more than 20 cops swarmed into the store and formed a barrier around the scene, “protecting” their fellow officers from being videotaped. The incident can be viewed on YouTube at tinyurl.com/pnrto2f.‘Black and Brown youth constantly harassed’“It was five cops against one unarmed person. This could have easily been another Eric Garner or Freddie Grey police murder situation,” said 23-year-old Donnay Edmund, a lifelong Flatbush resident and member of E4F’s Police Accountability Working Group.“Every day in East Flatbush and Flatbush, the police racially profile, brutalize and harass young people of color for no reason,” stated Edmund. “The media have already started painting Alando as a criminal, but what they are not saying is that Black and Brown youth are constantly harassed and falsely arrested for nonviolent ‘broken windows’ violations [ticketing of people for minor offenses in the hope that greater “crimes” will be discovered], especially in gentrifying neighborhoods like Flatbush.”Anick Boyd, who has lived in Flatbush for the last eight years, witnessed the police attack and was so outraged by the cops’ violence that she began reaching out to community groups, such as the PPA and E4F, to help mobilize a community response.“If the mission of the NYPD is to ‘preserve the peace, reduce fear and to provide for a safe environment,’ then I believe that law enforcement officers who fail to fulfill that mission should be held accountable for their actions,” said Boyd.Equality for Flatbush demands: Dropping all criminal charges against Alando Brissett; a full, independent investigation of the police assault; public release of the names of the five officers involved in the attack; that these five officers be immediately put on administrative duty; an end to the NYPD’s racial profiling, constant “broken windows” ticketing, and excessive police presence in Flatbush and East Flatbush, Brooklyn; and that Target immediately issue a public apology for their reckless endangerment of the life of Alando Brissett and its customers on July 25.E4F is also gathering more eyewitness accounts and video of this violent NYPD assault. Community residents who witnessed this brutality and/or can document other incidents of police violence and harassment in Flatbush and East Flatbush, please contact E4F at [email protected] or call/text 646-820-6039.

OHS student in fight still experiencing effects

first_img Facebook Previous articleMan charged with shooting gunNext articleJBS institute gets grant for Texas Supreme Court visit admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Local NewsEducation OHS student in fight still experiencing effects Home Local News Education OHS student in fight still experiencing effects Facebook Pinterest Pinterest Charlize Rice is recovering from injuries from what her mother calls an assault but school district officials call a fight.  WhatsApp Following an incident at Odessa High School, 15-year-old Charlize Rice is still suffering the effects of a concussion and seizure.Her mother, Courtney Rice, said Friday she plans to take her daughter out of OHS and home school her. She also is looking for a lawyer.The incident, which occurred Wednesday at OHS, was investigated by the Ector County Independent School District Police Department and the case is currently closed unless new information comes to light, Public Information Officer Mike Adkins said. No charges were pursued.OHS Principal Mauricio Marquez could not be reached for comment on Thursday or Friday about the matter.The fight was videotaped and shows a student on the floor in distress, but no one helping her.Adkins has said the girl, who appears hurt, may not have been jumped, but threatening messages may have been exchanged between her and another girl. He said the video only showed the end of the fight and doesn’t give any indication of what happened in the hallway.The video circulated on social media with many questioning why the OHS students who witnessed the girl’s seizure continued to film her rather than help her.Adkins said a student did go for help, going to the nurse’s office first who radioed an assistant principal and a police officer.Rice’s mother, Courtney, said Charlize had a concussion and a seizure from a knockout blow from behind. Courtney Rice said her daughter had never had any health problems.An ambulance transported her to the hospital and she had an X-ray. She was classified at the hospital as being assaulted and was checked out that way, as well, Courtney Rice said.Charlize had a doctor’s appointment Friday morning and might have to be sent back to the hospital for an MRI. The final diagnosis, Courtney Rice said, was assault checking in and leaving, a facial contusion, a concussion and bodily injuries.She added that she suspects there were two girls, not one, involved and said this is not the first go-around with the two girls. Courtney Rice said one girl was threatening her daughter and bullied her on social media. She got a picture of Charlize Rice and put it on Snapchat with a message saying she was ready for sex.Adkins said there is a thread on social media where threats went back and forth between the two girls before the fight.However, Courtney Rice said there is no proof that her daughter threatened the other girl.Adkins said when the ECISD police were done talking to Rice’s parents, they closed the case unless they get new information.He said the difference between a fight and assault is a fight is mutual. Officers looked into it and determined it was a fight and Adkins said as far as he knows there were only two girls involved, not three.Courtney Rice said she has been asking her daughter about the threats and her daughter swears she didn’t make any. Courtney Rice said officials are making assumptions based on no foundation and no evidence. She said she is still looking for evidence about what happened.“All I know is what happened physically,” she said.Adkins said if the girl who fought Charlize Rice had fulfilled all her graduation requirements and can’t be kept from graduating, but she could be kept out of the graduation ceremony.He said he doesn’t know if there were surveillance cameras where the fight took place.Asked if the students that videotaped the fight and did nothing could be penalized, Adkins said students are expected to react in a case like this, but there is not an expectation that the entire crowd will leave and run.Courtney Rice said Charlize was bullied in seventh, eighth and ninth grade and this was the first year she made it all the way through without being bullied — until this week.“In order to go to that school, you have to have some UFC martial arts skills to get through,” Courtney Rice said.center_img Slap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash CasseroleTexas Fried ChickenSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay WhatsApp Twitter Noel earns award Registration set for engineering camp Twitter OCA top 2 were ESL students By admin – May 25, 2018 last_img read more

Boothe addresses Pike County Republican Women

first_imgLatest Stories Email the author Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Boothe told the Republican gathering that, on that date in Wheeling, West Va., Joe McCarthy attacked President Harry Truman’s foreign policy agenda by charging that the State Department and Secretary Dean Acheson harbored traitorous Communists, 205 of them.The term McCarthyism was derived from that speech and has come to mean the use of reckless and unfair accusations in the name of suppressing political disloyalty.Boothe, laughingly, said that his words would not have such an impact. However, he did say that the actions take during the recent Legislative session will “forever change” Alabama politics. “We made sweeping changes,” Boothe told the Pike County Republican Women and their guests. “The immigration law needs some tweaking but it is one that we can work with. The cost of illegal immigration is horrendous. I have no problem with people coming into the United State but there is a right way and a wrong way. We have a process whereby people can come into our country legally. That’s the right way.”Boothe said the Legislature passed a new budget process that will take the state into the future.He said that the Legislature approved a Health Care bill that will give small business owners a 200 percent tax break on health insurance for their employees.Ethics reform was a big issue and the Legislature did away with double dipping and that bill will go into effect in 2014. Boothe said that he takes pride in the Ethics reform bill and is hopeful that it will clean up the corruption in Montgomery.“I’m a firm supporter of the late-term abortion bill that was passed that will stop the murdering of late-term babies,” he said. “I’m also pound of the tenure bill that will give local school boards and superintendents authority to fire teachers who are not doing their jobs.”Boothe said this past Legislative session has received high marks by those who evaluate such things.“I think that this was the best Legislative session that we’ve had in a long time,” he said. “We made some sweeping changes but the government can’t be all things to all people all the time. Unlike Washington, we can’t print more money.”Boothe said that, if there’s a sewage problem in a household and the sewage keeps backing up, the solution is not to take the roof off to make room for more sewage. “The solution is to get rid of the sewage.”“We’ve got some real problems in this country but we’re kicking the can down the road,” Boothe said. “But somebody’s got to deal with it.” Boothe addresses Pike County Republican Women By Jaine Treadwell Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Sponsored Content By The Penny Hoarder Skip Print Article You Might Like Commission OKs district lines The Pike County Commission adopted a redistricting map based on the 2010 Census at its Monday meeting.

40% of agents now offer online viewings following Coronavirus crisis

first_imgNearly 40% of all estate agents are now using online viewings to keep their sales pipeline going following the dramatic changes imposed on the housing market during the Covid pandemic, it has been claimed.Rightmove has told The Negotiator that 6,000 of the estate agency branches listing on its portal have used its recently-launched online viewings label when uploading properties.Given that there are approximately 16,000 agency branches listing on its portal, this means that at least 38% of agents now offer video or virtual viewings to potential property buyers browsing online.The need to offer virtual viewings during the recent lockdown has seen a huge increase in the number of agents adopting video and 3D virtual tour technology, and many are keen to begin using in case there is a second wave of the Coronavirus and a subsequent additional lockdown.Online viewingRightmove launched its Automated Online Viewing feature in April after it was deluged with agents want to flag up their online viewings capability to potential buyers.The system enables house hunters to complete the portal’s online enquiry form to request more details about a property and at the same time flag up their desire to see properties that come with virtual viewings.This, Rightmove claims, means agent can then reply to these leads and send customers a link to a property’s video or 3D tour, or an invitation to a ‘live’ digital property viewing.As we reported in April, Rightmove recently added ‘video tour’ buttons to its mobile app but has now gone further, creating separate branded ‘video pages’ on its site and app for each property which can then be emailed to clients.The initiative is part of Rightmove’s ‘Ten Point Plan’ to get the housing market back on its feet.Read more about Rightmove’s viewings tech.online viewings Rightmove virtual viewings June 4, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Real Good Food announces strong bakery sales

first_imgSignificant sales growth at The Real Good Food Company’s bakery division, Hayden’s, has helped the firm achieve estimated profits of around 25% above current market expectations.Hayden’s Bakeries achieved double-digit growth with all its major customers, for the year ended 31 December, including Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Costa Coffee, with overall sales up 15%. In its pre-close trading update, the firm also revealed that a major investment plan is now being overseen by the management team, led by MD Paul Smith, to double the size of the business over the next four years.Among its successes last year, the division grew its foodservice sales, an area the business moved into in 2008, which now accounts for almost 10% of total revenues. Twenty-nine products were either launched or re-launched during the firm’s “key launch window” in October, and mince pie sales hit record levels, with over 1.5 million pies produced – up 64% on 2008.The supplier of sugars, bakery ingredients and manufacturer of bakery products, also announced record retail sales of sugar, within its ingredients business – Renshawnapier, in 2009, which was put down to a combination new contracts and growth in the home-baking market.Sugar sales to small industrial customers increased strongly in the second half of 2009, with new product launches planned to help further drive growth in the division.Bulk sugar sales reduced slightly due to weakness in the market, “following the final phase of the EU Sugar Regime changes in October”. However the firm announced a number of new contracts have already been gained for 2010.“The Group expects to report profits before taxation and exceptional items for the year ended 31 December 2009, which are around 25% above current market expectations,” according to Real Good Food, which also managed to reduce its bank borrowings from £29.1m to £21.3m during the period end.The firm expects to announce its preliminary results in mid-March.  Real Good Food Company is comprised of its ingredients business, Renshawnapier, and its bakery businesses Hayden’s Bakeries and cake manufacturer Seriously Scrumptious.last_img read more

News story: Over £15 million of funding sourced for small business

first_imgOne of the biggest challenges for a growing small business is securing credit. Small businesses are the backbone of Britain, yet many give up on their plans to expand if they can’t get a loan from their bank. Now however, thanks to our match-making scheme, they have another shot. That’s why we’re pleased to provide ongoing support for the government’s Bank Referral Scheme, which is enabling an increasing number of smaller businesses to explore additional options if they are unsuccessful in their original application. The Scheme was launched in November 2016 in response to evidence which suggested that small and medium-sized businesses simply gave up, rather than seek alternative options, if turned down for a loan by their bank.Rejected businesses are now automatically offered the opportunity to be referred to three online credit brokers: Alternative Business Funding, Funding Options and Funding Xchange. Each platform provides access to a range of lenders and products, including business loans, revolving credit, asset finance and invoice finance.Loans resulting from the scheme ranged from £100 to £1.3 million. The average size of a loan secured was £17,285.Alice Hu-Wagner, Managing Director for Strategy, Economics and Business Development at the British Business Bank said, One of our key objectives at the British Business Bank is to encourage and enable smaller UK businesses to seek the finance best suited to their needs. Just over half of smaller businesses consider only one provider when they need funding, however, with over a quarter putting their plans on hold or giving up altogether if they aren’t offered the full amount they were seeking. From breweries to beauticians, more than 900 British businesses have been matched with the funding they need to grow since we introduced our scheme. Small businesses turned down for loans from the UK’s high-street banks have received over £15 million of funding thanks to a government matchmaking scheme.Over the past 12 months, 670 businesses have raised over £12 million of funding through the Bank Referral Scheme, four times what was raised in the previous year. Since it was introduced in November 2016, more than £15 million has been sourced for businesses across the country.The Bank Referral Scheme requires Britain’s biggest banks to pass on the details of small businesses they have turned down for loans to online credit brokers. The brokers then help those businesses to source funding from alternative, and often smaller, lenders.John Glen, Economic Secretary to the Treasury said: Thanks to government scheme over £15 million has been found for businesses who were rejected for finance by their bank. The amount of funding secured through the scheme has quadrupled since last year.last_img read more

Senate resolution aims to increase transparency with Club Coordination Council

first_imgIn its weekly meeting, Notre Dame’s student senate approved a resolution requiring the Club Coordination Council (CCC) to address the Senate once a semester. This resolution detailing an increase in communication between the two branches of student government comes after a resolution earlier this year which increased funding to clubs from 37 percent to 40 percent.Sophomore Patrick Harris, vice president of the CCC, gave a presentation to the Senate detailing a basic outline of the CCC’s role in financial allocation for clubs.“The Club Coordination Council often spends its time working with other clubs as opposed to student government, so in the past we’ve kind of been a distant branch of student government,” Harris said.The CCC handles outreach to clubs and allocation and distribution of the money that Student Government gives them. They divide over 400 student clubs into six divisions based on type of club, such as academic, athletic and social service clubs.“The divisions ensure that clubs of different kinds are able to get the support that they need, not all that support will be the same depending on what division you are in,” Harris said.There are two club funding allocation dates, one in the fall and one in the spring. During those days, the CCC tracks the projected expenses of the club. Combined, all the clubs total just shy of $2.2 million dollars for the entire year, Harris said.However, the funding clubs receive is now around $360,000 per year to allocate to all the clubs, which is only 15 percent of the projected expenses, Harris said.“Over the past couple of years, the number of clubs has greatly expanded and the funding has not expanded as much, so that’s why the resolution increased the funding from 37 percent to 40 percent,” Harris said.The CCC then ranks the funds through a tier system by division, where some expenses are higher tiered, meaning they will be more heavily funded, and some are lower tiered, or less funded. The highest-tiered groups receive 80 percent of the requested funding from the CCC, and the lowest-tiered groups receive 20 percent. The determination process is based on a number of factors, including club members, revenue, fundraising and dues, Harris said.“For academic clubs, conference fees and airfare are typically more expensive than food, so food is tiered lower and gets cut more strictly,” Harris said.“For athletic clubs, the equipment and field rentals are tiered higher than food or travel,” he added.The resolution aims to uphold transparency between the CCC and the senatorial branch of student government to better ensure the needs of the student body population are being upheld fairly in terms of the financial distribution of resources between club divisions.The senate also voted on a resolution to clarify the executive responsibilities of chief of staff to the student body president and vice president.“The chief of shall assist student body president in daily meetings and tasks as president,” freshman parliamentarian Thomas Davis said.“The chief of staff shall assist the student body vice president in coordination and efforts ad hoc of any departments as needed,” Davis added.The responsibilities also include convening and chairing departmental meetings in the absence of that department’s director, attending cabinet meetings and working with the press secretary for press releases, among other tasks.The meeting wrapped up with the group approving the nominations of the SUB 2019-2020 executive board as well as the Student Union treasurer’s two assistants.Tags: 2019-2020 senate, Chief of Staff, Club Coordination Council, Senate, SUBlast_img read more
