This mosque on the suburban periphery of the port of Chittagong in Bangladesh seeks to fulfil the traditional role of a mosque as both a place of spirituality and as a gathering place for the community. The architect began by identifying the essential elements of a mosque to create a new form and articulation for a typology that goes back for a millennium and a half. The result is this monolithic and spare mosque, pared down to two identical cuboid structures.Save this picture!© Aga Khan Award for Architecture / BKS InanRecommended ProductsCeramicsApavisaTiles – JewelsWoodEGGERWood-based materials in EGGER HeadquartersWood Boards / HPL PanelsLamitechLamitech high pressure plastic laminateCeramicsGrespaniaWall Tiles – Wabi SabiThe first is the front court, its heavy masonry walls punctuated with low, wide openings onto the surrounding landscape, with a large eyelike opening above. In the second volume, the naturally lit mihrab wall is balanced by an iconic, cut dome. While the apertures give a sense of openness and draw in light and ventilation by day, by night they allow light to shine out of the mosque like a beacon. With its stark, geometric clarity, the Chandgaon mosque stands apart from many such structures that have reduced architectural features associated with the usual mosque type to the level of kitsch. It makes a definitive architectural statement in a different direction, pointing to the contemporary, to a desire to live in spaces that reflect the universal values of the present day.Save this picture!© Aga Khan Award for Architecture / BKS InanProject gallerySee allShow lessMaple Leaf Square Canopy / United Visual ArtistsArticlesRenaissance Marriot Hotel in Paris / Atelier Christian de PortzamparcArticles Share Save this picture!© Aga Khan Award for Architecture / BKS Inan+ 10 Share Chandgaon Mosque / Kashef Mahboob ChowdhurySave this projectSaveChandgaon Mosque / Kashef Mahboob Chowdhury CopyAbout this officeKashef Chowdhury – URBANAOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasChittagongReligious Architecture3D ModelingBangladeshPublished on October 15, 2010Cite: “Chandgaon Mosque / Kashef Mahboob Chowdhury” 15 Oct 2010.

General strike renews anti-banker struggle in Greece

first_imgThe Greek labor movement held a 24-hour general strike Nov. 12 that basically shut the country down.The strike closed the Athens metro and suburban railway and cut service on bus, trolley and train routes. It stranded the ferries in port linking the Ionian islands, which are currently flooded with refugees traveling from Turkey to Europe. It cancelled domestic air flights.The strike shut museums and archaeological sites, as well as schools and pharmacies. Hospitals handled only emergencies. Many privately owned shops also closed.According to the Nov. 12 British Guardian, this was the first general strike since Syriza took office in January 2015 and the 41st since Greece’s financial crisis began five years ago.In addition to the strike, there were three major rallies in Athens. One was led by the Greek Public Sector Union, ADEDY, and the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE). Another was led by the Alll Workers’ Militant Front (PAME), which is close to the Greek Communist Party. The third was led by a coalition of small leftist parties and anarchists, whom the cops attacked. Police reported 25,000 protesting in Athens, while a coordinated demonstration in Thessaloníki drew 10,000.PAME organized 71 strike demonstrations all over the country, drawing the unemployed, pensioners, self-employed, poor farmers, as well as youth and women from the Federation of Greek Women.The mostly foreign big banks were demanding changes to make it easier for them to foreclose on the tens of thousands of mortgages in arrears. The Syriza government, led by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, gave in to the creditors. Popular anger against the new measures grew so intense that the Syriza party, despite its role in running the government, called on workers to participate in the demonstrations of ADEDY-GSEE against its own anti-people political line.PAME called this a “brazen display of hypocrisy.” Comments on social media made the same point. One, for example, asked: “Do we march with Alexis to overthrow Tsipras, or do we march with Tsipras to overthrow Alexis?” (BFMTV.com)Greece has been in a major capitalist depression for more than six years, and the austerity its creditors demand worsen this depression. Wages have been cut by 30 percent, pensions by even more, and taxes on everything are going up. But the big German and English banks want every last penny of the debt — even if paying it destroys Greece’s economy and leads to a social explosion.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Racism’s impact on maternity

first_imgWomen’s History Month is a federally declared annual event that highlights the contributions of women to historical events and contemporary society. As a Black woman in contemporary society, there are many issues that affect me and my community at large. Racism and the ways in which white supremacy rears its ugly head are woven into our lives on a daily basis — especially when we are most vulnerable.As Black women, during pregnancy and childbirth, we are at the most vulnerable to systemic racism. Black women are disproportionately affected by police brutality, low wages, homelessness and the violence of racism and genocide.Black mothers die of heart failureAccording to a Dec. 7 article in ProPublica, “In recent years, as high rates of maternal mortality in the U.S. have alarmed researchers, one statistic has been especially concerning. According to the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], black mothers in the U.S. die at three to four times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women’s health.  Put another way, a black woman is 243 percent more likely to die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related causes.”That number — 243 percent — is a heavy one to take in.  The way racism shows up in those blessed to be Black women is especially blatant when it comes to health care.  The bias toward Black women and children is the crux of the problem.  Women of most races aren’t heard when they speak up about pain management or just a general feeling of not feeling well.  Imagine being a Black woman and experiencing tremendous pain during and after childbirth, and you are not given the basic care — which is adequate pain management — like your female counterparts who are enduring the same process of trying to bring forth life.Erica GarnerTwo women who have recently experienced childbirth, along with a serious health crisis or death, come to mind.  One is Erica Garner, who died of a broken heart on Dec. 30 after her father, Eric Garner, was murdered in 2014 by the state in Staten Island, N.Y. The other is the number one athlete in the world: Serena Williams.Erica Garner experienced a side effect of living while Black when her father was murdered. This trauma led to a heart attack after the birth of her son last August. This is an all too common occurrence after a Black woman births a baby.The American Heart Association says, “Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM), also known as postpartum cardiomyopathy, is an uncommon form of heart failure that happens during the last month of pregnancy or up to five months after giving birth.” (Dec. 12)However, the AHA also says this is “a rare occurrence” — because it isn’t checking for PPCM among Black women. If the organization was doing that, everyone in the U.S. would or should be outraged.Megan Brooks, in an article titled “Peripartum Cardiomyopathy More Severe for Black Women,” writes: “African American women with PPCM are diagnosed later postpartum, they present with more severe systolic dysfunction, their cardiac function worsens after diagnosis more often and recovers less frequently, and, when cardiac function does recover, it takes much longer to do so.” (posted on Medscape, Oct. 13)Serena WillaimsSerena Williams gave birth to her baby daughter on Sept. 1. She has a history of blood clots. After giving birth via C-section, she had a hard time breathing. In a Jan. 10 article in Vogue titled “Serena Williams on Motherhood, Marriage and Making her Comeback,” she explains that she knew that she needed a “CT scan with contrast and IV heparin (a blood thinner) right away. The nurse thought her pain medicine might be making her confused. But Serena insisted, and soon enough a doctor was performing an ultrasound of her legs. ‘I was like, a Doppler? I told you, I need a CT scan and a heparin drip,’ she remembers telling the team. The ultrasound revealed nothing, so they sent her for the CT, and sure enough, several small blood clots had settled in her lungs. Minutes later she was on the drip. ‘I was like, listen to Dr. Williams!’”Infant mortality among African AmericansWilliams, who has unlimited funds, was not initially heard by the medical staff. Imagine the situation facing a woman living in a poor neighborhood going to a hospital with a biased staff.  It most certainly would have led to a different outcome. This is good information to know. What do we do with this informed knowledge? Who takes up our cause? Also, with the high rate of Black mothers dying, it leads to the topic of infant mortality rates among Black children.When I was pregnant with my son, I heard a statistic that Black boys had the highest infant mortality rate up until the age of five!  I couldn’t stop worrying about my son until he was five. I still worry because he can get shot while at school or while being a Black male anywhere in the U.S.According to the CDC: “Infant mortality is the death of an infant before his or their first birthday. The infant mortality rate is the number of infant deaths for every 1,000 live births. In addition to giving us key information about maternal and infant health, the infant mortality rate is an important marker of the overall health of a society.”The Department of Health and Human Services reports that African Americans have 2.2 times the infant mortality rate as non-Hispanic whites and African-American infants are 3.2 times as likely to die from complications related to low birthweight as compared to non-Hispanic white infants. In 2014, African Americans had over twice the sudden infant death syndrome mortality rate as non-Hispanic whites, and African-American mothers were 2.2 times more likely than non-Hispanic white mothers to receive late or no prenatal care.Dr. Joia Adele Crear-Perry, founder of the National Birth Equity Collaborative, says: “The United States is the only developed country in the world where maternal mortality is on the rise. Black women in the U.S. die at 3 to 4 times the rate of white women. Black babies die at 2 times the rate of their white counterparts. With clear evidence of this inequity, this is an urgent public health and human rights issue.“As a black woman from the Deep South who is an obstetrician and a mother, my strong desire to end this inequity is amplified every time I look into the faces of my daughter and my patients. It was with this understanding that I created the National Birth Equity Collaborative in 2015.” (The Renewal Project, Nov. 30)Black women will continue to do the work so that the least of these can flourish. The statistics brought up in this article should lead to a major uprising because white supremacy is dismantling our homes by way of harming Black women and our children.  This is genocide — the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.Wake up people! The effects of racism are literally and figuratively killing us. Let us continue to pull down monuments to white supremacy. Eventually, that will cause real change when it comes to one day erasing the systemic causes of racism and its impact on the health of Black women and our children.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Delinquency Rates Falling on Fannie Mae-Backed Mortgage Loans

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. The delinquency rate on residential mortgage loans backed by Fannie Mae declined across the board in 2014 due to a number of reasons that include foreclosure alternatives, home retention solutions, completed foreclosures, improved loan payment performance, and acquisitions of loans with stronger credit profiles, according to Fannie Mae’s recently released annual report.About 1.47 percent of mortgage loans backed by Fannie Mae were 30 to 59 days delinquent as of December 31, 2014 – a decrease from 1.64 percent at the end of 2013 and from 1.96 at the end of 2012. For loans that were 60 to 89 days delinquent, the percentage dropped from 0.66 percent at the end of 2012 to 0.49 percent in 2013 and down to 0.43 percent as of December 31, 2014.On loans that were “seriously delinquent,” or 90 days or more past due, the percentage has also been steadily falling – from 3.29 percent in 2012 down to 2.38 percent in 2013 to 1.89 percent as of December 31, 2014. The percentage of seriously delinquent loans that were delinquent for more than 180 days dropped from 73 percent at the end of 2013 to 70 percent at the end of 2014, and the percentage of seriously delinquent loans that were more than two years delinquent dropped from 36 percent at the end of 2013 down to 34 percent at the end of 2014.The single-family serious delinquency rate has declined every quarter since the first quarter of 2010, according to Fannie Mae.Fannie Mae cites one of the reasons for improvement in loan performance as stronger credit profiles of loans the Enterprise has acquired since 2009.  Those loans make up about 81 percent of Fannie Mae’s single-family guaranty book of business.Although the serious delinquency rate for loans backed by Fannie Mae has decreased, it is decreasing at a slower pace, which is a trend that the Enterprise expects will continue.”Our single-family serious delinquency rate and the period of time that loans remain seriously delinquent continue to be negatively impacted by the length of time required to complete a foreclosure in some states,” Fannie Mae wrote in the report. “High levels of foreclosures, changes in state foreclosure laws, new federal and state servicing requirements imposed by regulatory actions and legal settlements, and the need for servicers to adapt to these changes have lengthened the time it takes to foreclose on a mortgage loan in a number of states, particularly in New York, Florida and New Jersey. Longer foreclosure timelines result in these loans remaining in our book of business for a longer time, which has caused our serious delinquency rate to decrease more slowly in the last few years than it would have if the pace of foreclosures had been faster.”In addition to the slow pace of foreclosures in some areas, other factors that influence the serious delinquency rate of loans include loan modifications, home price changes, unemployment levels, and other macroeconomic conditions. Fannie Mae said it expects the number of seriously delinquent single-family loans in the Enterprise’s book of business to “stay above pre-2008 levels for years.” Previous: Auction.com Announces Promotions Next: Real Estate Capital Firm Publishes Online Short Sale Guide in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Delinquency Rates Falling on Fannie Mae-Backed Mortgage Loans Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more

Super Bowl argument at family barbecue leads to man’s shooting death

first_imgkatifcam/iStock(FRESNO, Calif.) — An argument over who would win the Super Bowl has led to the shooting death of a man in the middle of a barbecue with family and friends.The incident occurred over the weekend in Fresno, California, when 24-year old Frank Rojas, who was visiting friends and family, was enjoying a barbecue with them in the front yard of a home in downtown Fresno when a homeless man approached them, according to ABC News’ Fresno station KFSN-TV.“There was a disturbance in the front yard of that house, at the corner house, regarding the Super Bowl,” says Fresno Police Lt. Charlie Chamalbide to KFSN.Rojas allegedly got into an argument with the man over who was going to win Super Bowl LIV between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs.“Preliminary info is that they were rooting for different teams,” Chamalbide said.The fight allegedly escalated quickly and the suspect pulled out a weapon from his backpack and fired at Rojas, striking him, according to investigators.The suspect then took off on foot and tossed the weapon nearby while attempting to make his escape.“It wasn’t a gun, but it was like a makeshift gun, so we are trying to determine what exactly it was,” Chamalbide said.The suspect, allegedly in his 30s or 40s, was apprehended shortly after the shooting a few blocks away from the scene.Rojas was then allegedly rushed to Community Regional Medical Center where he underwent emergency surgery but was pronounced dead a short time later.The Kansas City Chiefs ended up winning Super Bowl LIV over the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.
