Placing moderately closed “Parent`s house”and “Housework and children`s house”in the north and south, extremely open “Everyone`s house” in the center, we make it compatible with keeping privacy and making an open house.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraWe design a house that residents feel as “living in the landscape”because by the series of house-type volumes, it become a series of landscapes ranging from houses to newtown to mountain ranges.Save this picture!Section“Everyone`s house”is a continuous space both inside and outside ,and has floors and steps at various levels with different meaning to each. They are not only as a space but also functions as a chair, table and storage, planning to be able to be used for each heuristically in everyday life by combining with the surrounding environment such as light, wind, sense of distance.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraA large space named “hall”which is the essence of “Everyone`s house”becomes a continuous field from the newtown, becoming a playground of the children around, becoming a study room of the family, and becoming a city living room of newtown by accepting the growth of the family and newtown at that time doing.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraThe inclined ceiling by wood in each “house”is made continuous or torn, so that the human space and the scaled out space coexist. At the boundary of the “house”the ceiling is low and it is the human space, at the center the ceiling is high and it becomes the space scaled out. With the slope of the ceiling, the human scale scales out seamlessly and connects to the outside via the balcony, so that people feel that mountain ranges on the east and newtown in the west are not “cutted out and relativized exterior ”but“exterior felt as extension of body”. It is as if living in “wooden window”where comfort and openness coexist, and it will be a new type of connection to the outside.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraIn newtown “house”s, by rearranging and reconstructing the spaces of the house, we created a new relationship of “people, houses, newtown, landscapes”with how appearance is, how to use the space, how to feel the space. And the overlap aimed to produce a rich life.Also, I hoped that such new relationship would help to realize that houses is more free, even for newtown with uniform town houses.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Mango House / Studio PKASelected ProjectsBeijing Cidi Memo iTown / Atelier Liu Yuyang ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houseslast_img

March 7, 1970 – Historic International Working Women’s Day march to House of Detention

first_imgby Naomi CohenThe following excerpt is from an article originally printed in the March 25, 1970, Workers World newspaper entitled, “A day of struggle in New York City — Militant demonstration marks International Women’s Day” written by Naomi Cohen.  YAWF banner leads march to Women’s House of Detention, 1970.The occasion was March 7, the first International Women’s Day rally in this coun­try in many years. In this city and around the coun­try, women took this day to revive the revolutionary traditions of a day that is truly for women in struggle.1,000 rally in New York CityThe day was marked here by over 1,000 women and male supporters with a rally in Union Square and a militant march to New York’s Bastille — the Women’s House of Detention. The action was or­ganized by the Women’s Caucus of Youth Against War and Fascism and included representatives from many women’s organizations. So that women with children could attend, men from YAWF staffed a childcare center at a nearby church during the rally.When the rally ended, women poured out of Union Square Park and began a spirited march to the infamous Women’s House of Detention. They carried banners demanding equal pay for equal work, free and legal abortions, no job discrimination and free­dom for Geraldine Robinson, a Black mother of five from Buffalo, who was framed up along with Martin Sostre for running a revolutionary book­store in the Black community there.Marching along the crowded streets, the women chanted, “Women, let’s unite and fight,” “Out of the house, out of the jails, out from under, women unite,” and “Free our sisters, free ourselves. Free Joan Bird, free Erica Huggins.”Speaking with jailed sistersThe march grew as it went, so that when it reached the prison, the demonstrators completely circled the building. Women prisoners waved and shouted out of the windows: “Free us,” “Power to the people” and “We want food.” The demonstrators stopped at the back of the prison, where they could hear the women best, and shouted up to their imprisoned sisters. “Hey, hey, ho, ho, The House of D has got to go’’ was picked up by the crowd. “Free Joan Bird” was raised again and again to demand freedom for the Panther woman now imprisoned there for almost a year on $100,000 ransom as a result of the frame-up of the New York Panther 21.The cops were ominously moving in, harassing the demonstrators, but no one was moving. The women stood with fists raised and shouted up to the prisoners. It was finally suggested that the demon­strators demand their right to see prison author­ities with a list of demands. As the women marched on the front of the prison, police moved in to block their way.The women refused to give way and stood at the entrance of the prison chanting, “Free our sisters, free ourselves.” A handful of cops were nervously backed up against the prison wall, confronted by an angry crowd of determined women.Finally, a squad of cops charged the demonstra­tors, pushing them away from the prison. Clubs started swinging, and the people were brutally man­handled. In the process, three women and three male supporters were arrested. The three women are Sharon Eolis, a leader in YAWF, and Rita Freed and Pam Kirkland, long-time activists in Youth Against War and Fascism and well-known to New York’s secret police. Three men, Mike Fried­man, Steve Cagan and Jamie Fryer were also arrested.Framed-up women and supportersIt took the cops two hours to decide to frame-up the demonstrators on very heavy charges. Sharon Eolis, Pam Kirkland and Steve Cagan are being charged with felonious assault on a cop, in addi­tion to first-degree riot, also a felony. The de­fendants are also being charged with resisting ar­rest, harassment, obstruction of government ad­ministration and disorderly conduct.The stiff charges make it clear that the women’s liberation movement can now expect the same kind of repression that the government has brought down on the Black Liberation and antiwar move­ments. Women’s liberation is spoken of as a joke in the capitalist press, but the moment women begin to struggle in militant actions, the repression comes down.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. More Cool Stuff STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Image courtesy Rose Bowl Institute FacebookStadiums, ballparks and amusement parks will be permitted to reopen with limited capacity and social distancing protocols in effect beginning April 1 under new guidelines issued by the state Friday, but it remained unclear whether public health officials in Pasadena would allow the Rose Bowl to reopen in response to the newly revised guidelines.The California Department of Public Health issued a revision to its “Blueprint for a Safer Economy”California Secretary of Health and Human Services Dr. Mark Ghaly said declining infection rates, along with the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines, made the change possible.“With case rates and hospitalizations significantly lower, the arrival of three highly effective vaccines and targeted efforts aimed at vaccinating the most vulnerable communities, California can begin gradually and safely bringing back more activities, especially those that occur outdoors and where consistent masking is possible,” he said. “Even with these changes, California retains some of the most robust public health protocols in the country.”State guidelines now allow for stadiums, ballparks and outdoor performance venues to reopen with no more than 100 attendees while the region is in the state’s most restrictive, or Purple, tier under the state’s COVID-19 response framework. Only visitors from within the same region are allowed.“Advanced reservations will be required, and no concession or concourse sales will be allowed,” according to a CDPH statement.“In the Red tier, capacity will be limited to 20 percent. Concession sales will be primarily in-seat (no concourse sales),” the statement added. “In the Orange tier capacity will be limited to 33 percent and in the Yellow tier capacity will increase to 67 percent. Attendance will be limited to in-state visitors in the Red, Orange and Yellow tiers.Amusement parks will be permitted to open only in regions that have achieved Red Tier status or better.“Capacity will be limited to 15 percent in the Red tier,” according to a CDPH statement. “In the Orange tier, that limitation will increase to 25 percent, and then 35 percent in the Yellow tier. Attendance will be limited to in-state visitors.”Both Pasadena city officials and Rose Bowl representatives said they were looking into the new state guidelines and what the changes might mean locally.City officials learned of the change Friday afternoon, along with the rest of the public, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.“We typically do not get much (notice) when the state makes an announcement like this,” she said.“It’s encouraging,” Derderian said of the policy change. “Our goal is to be able to open, but still in a safe environment, following all the covid protocol.”She added that the city’s primary focus has been on distributing vaccinations and helping shepherd the region into the Red Tier.Rose Bowl General Manager Darryl Dunn said the stadium, too, had just learned of the new guidelines and was examining options.Meanwhile, public health officials in Pasadena reported 15 new COVID-19 infections and one new death on Friday.The death was that of a member of the community at large, as opposed to a resident of a care facility, Derderian said. Information regarding the victim’s age and gender was not available.The new figures raised Pasadena’s totals since the onset of the pandemic to 10,977 known COVID-19 infections and 319 fatalities.Pasadena saw an average of 16.2 daily infections over the prior week, according to city data.At Huntington Hospital, officials reported treating 36 COVID-19 patients on Friday, with eight of them being housed in intensive care units.While recent trends have been encouraging, Derderian urged Pasadenans not to fall into complacency.“If people get too comfortable and travel or gather in groups outside their household there is still the concern we can see another surge,” she said.The growing proportion of the population that has received vaccinations seemed to be driving down new infections, Derderian added.“Hundreds of restaurant and grocery workers were vaccinated this week and that will continue,” according to Derderian. “Teachers and daycare workers are also in this phase to prepare for school reopening.”“We should be receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the next few weeks, so we’re very optimistic that’ll enable us to vaccinate more community and business representatives,” she said.But for far too many families, the pandemic was far from over, Derderian said.“Unfortunately, we are still seeing deaths almost daily from cases that in some cases go back several weeks,” she said.Eligible Pasadenans were urged to fill out an inquiry form on the city’s website to be notified when vaccines are available at cityofpasadena.net/public-health/covid-19-vaccine.

Donegal County Council’s stalled budget meeting resumes this morning

first_img Google+ By News Highland – January 10, 2012 WhatsApp News Facebook Calls for maternity restrictions to be lifted at LUH Twitter Donegal County Council’s stalled budget meeting resumes today, with no signs yet of a resolution. Today is the government’s deadline for a decision, with fears that failure to agree a budget will lead to Environment Minister Phil Hogan by-passing the council, and appointing a commissioner to run the county.Before Christmas, the draft budget was rejected.What happens when members enter the chamber today could determine the immediate future of Donegal County Council.Sinn Fein and a number of independents have indicated they will continue to oppose the budget, leaving the focus on Fianna Fail.If they vote yes or abstain, that should allow the budget go through. If they continue to oppose, then the way forward is unclear. We understand Manager Seamus Neely and senior officials have been burning the midnight oil in a bid to identify more discretionary funds that can be used on local road projects, but it’s difficult to see how they can come close to the million euro Fianna Fail says is necessary.If agreement can’t be reached today, Minister Phil Hogan may be asked for an extension, but that’s by no means guaranteed, with some members suggesting he might use Donegal as an example. The other question is if sufficient money can’t be found to bridge the gap today, where can it be found next week or next month?.An increase in central government funding seems the only guaranteed way to resolve this impasse, but such a move seems highly unlikely to say the least. Unless a resolution can be found today, Donegal County Council may be heading for a period of administration, and could bring the council, and the county, into uncharted waters.

Having a positive impact

first_imgTraining and HR manager of IT services specialist Esteem Systems, SusanClarkson, explains why she believes her input in a relatively new role is provingbeneficialHow long have you been in this job? Since June 2000 when I joined Esteem. What does your role involve? The whole HR remit – training and development, employee relations,remuneration policy and recruitment. What’s the best thing about your job? The variety, the fact that I am able to have an impact on the way peopleperform in their roles and, ultimately, on how business is done. What is your major project or strategic push? We are working to attain the Investors in People accreditation. This involvesdeveloping a more coherent and consistent management training strategy. In softskills, particularly, we are looking to align our training with business needs.This means we have to analyse the training implications of corporate,departmental and personal objectives. Preferred terminology: training, development, education, or learning? Development. Favourite buzzwords? None – I don’t like them. Are you good at self development? Hmmm! I know what I need to do, most of the time and try to learn somethingnew every day but, in the real world, the answer is not as good as I could be! What self development have you done in the past six months? I have been on several HR strategy courses that aim to look at theunderlying reasons for doing what we do. I always make the effort to find outmore about recent developments/trends such as emotional intelligence. Where do you want to be in five years? On a sunny beach with a Pina Colada in my hand. Seriously, I would stilllike to be working for Esteem Systems, but I would like my role to havedeveloped to be more strategic and advisory. This post was new to the companywhen I started, so I spent the first year firefighting and introducingprocedures, but I expect there will soon be opportunities to take it further. What was the most useful course or learning experience? It was not a traditional course – it was the learning experience I wentthrough when I climbed Ben Nevis for charity recently. It taught me that inorder to achieve something worthwhile, you have to push yourself beyond yournormal limits (be these physical or mental) you can always do more than youthink you can. Which is the best management book you have read? Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen – not atraditional management book, but full of guidance and worthwhile advice. What was the worst course you ever went on? I don’t believe I have ever been on a bad course – I try to make sure Ialways get something out of them. What did you want to do for a living when you were at school? I wanted to be in the legal profession. What was your first job? My first job was as an executive officer with the Crown Prosecution Service.What was the best career decision you ever made? To move to London with the CPS. Which of your qualifications do you most value and why? My A-levels, because the exam results made me sit up and realise I couldn’tbe complacent about my abilities, and demonstrated the importance ofpreparation. Up to that point, I didn’t have to work for my exams because I wasbright enough to get by with reasonably hard work during the year. I did not doterribly well in my A-levels, which gave me the jolt I needed. How many minutes is it since someone senior in your organisation said”People are our greatest assets”? No idea, but it is one of the premises we work on. Evaluation: holy grail or impossible dream? Neither – just a good habit. How do you think your job will have changed in five years time? Line management will become more involved and accountable, and I will beexpected to contribute more directly to the business. What advice would you give to someone starting out in training anddevelopment? Find out about the business you work in. Talk to line managers about whatthey want from their department and staff, then look at individual needs. Tryto make a positive contribution as soon as possible. How do you network? I keep in contact with other HR professionals I have dealt with in the past.I make sure if I attend any events, I get to know at least one person and keepin touch with them, because you must have a common issue or cause for you bothto be attending the same event. I also keep in touch with the local CIPDbranch. Describe your management style in three words or less? Involving, democratic, serious. How would you like to be remembered by your colleagues? As someone they could talk to and approach. Comments are closed.

British cities are now more affordable, but income multiples remain crazy

first_imgThe scene is set for a mini property boom once Brexit is out of the way one way or another, latest house price data from Zoopla reveals.Although London remains crazily expensive with an average house price of £483,100 which is thirteen times the capital’s average salary, the portal says the affordability gap is narrowing within the UK’s most unaffordable cities, including the capital.Other more expensive cities where people are now more able to afford a home purchase or get on the property ladder include 12 cities where earnings are rising faster than house prices.These include Oxford, Cambridge, Bournemouth, Southampton and Bristol, Birmingham, Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield and Glasgow where house price inflation has begun to slow significantly.The most notable of these is Birmingham where house prices have increased by 3.5% so far this year, half the growth rate it witnessed last year but still above the UK average of 2% year-on-year growth.“Although the likes of London, Oxford, Cambridge are at their most affordable levels in four years, the price to earnings ratio remains well ahead of the 20-year average,” says Richard Donnell, Research and Insight Director at Zoopla (left).“Some cities in the north of England and Scotland are more affordable now when compared to 2007 but, with more scope for future house price growth, the price to earnings ratio is set to rise slowly in the coming years.“Lower-priced cities in northern England are actually getting less affordable than their southern counterparts when you consider that the annual percentage growth in house prices is outstripping earnings growth.”  Birmingham Zoopla August 23, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
