For an architect, this can be the kind of moment which he dreams of, but when it eventually appears, he realizes that the inexistence of normal architectural impositions can be a deceptive trap. The lack of spatial, morphological, historical or cultural landmarks that characterizes interventions in a completely new neighborhood, at the zero points of its becoming, is sometimes a more important obstacle than it may seem in starting and developing the creative process inherent to architecture. Consequently, the lack of limits generates self-censorship, the conscious development of a personal set of values.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Cosmin DragomirDumbrava Vlăsiei prefigures to become an atypical residential district for the real estate developments in Romania. Less than an hour drive from Bucharest, surrounded by forest, with an interesting urban design, with sinuous streets and green public spaces, with lots of different shapes and size, Dumbrava Vlăsiei is slowly becoming a special place, and this is already evident from what has been built up to the present. A public park of remarkable scale and complexity is set right in the heart of the new neighborhood. The elements that make up the specific equipment, the urban furniture, the roadway, the sidewalks, the street lighting are taken into account during the project phase and are put into operation with the utmost rigor.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe first idea was to develop a house on a single level, with more than just a visual connection with its courtyard, each space having access to the exterior, but with a discreet relationship with the street front. A linear spatial development, perpendicular to the street, a succession of spatial sequences calibrated according to the functional necessities assigned to each of them. To free the inner spaces as much as possible, the rooms are delimited one from the other by functional walls, always of the same thickness, containing furniture and equipment – from wardrobes and shelves to kitchen countertops.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirTwo external courtyards interrupt the linearity of the house, one that announces the access and another, more generous, in relation to the kitchen and the dining room. The house is divided into two areas, the one adjacent to the street, designed for the daily life, characterized by space fluidity, and the retracted, with a view to the opposite side, night area, which ensures privacy. A possible reference was what, sometimes with contempt, is called the “wagon house”, which has a morphology characteristic of the rural area in question, and which, despite its apparent simplicity, has a spatial potential still insufficiently exploited in contemporary local architecture.Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirSave this picture!Elevations and SectionSave this picture!© Cosmin DragomirProject gallerySee allShow less“Everybody Can Share an Opinion, But at The End I’ll Decide”: In Conversation with C…InterviewsWinning Designs for Abu Dhabi Flamingo Observation TowerArchitecture News Share Projects Save this picture!© Cosmin Dragomir+ 37Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” Photographs ArchDaily Photographs:  Cosmin Dragomir Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921479/e-plus-e-house-ene-plus-ene-arhitectura Clipboard Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Louis Poulsen, Ytong, BPB Rigips, Grisco, IR Colors, Schuco, Trimble Navigation, White Design Architects: Ene+Ene Arhitectura Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921479/e-plus-e-house-ene-plus-ene-arhitectura Clipboard Year: center_img Lead Architects: “COPY” Romania CopyHouses•Romania E+E House / Ene+Ene Arhitectura Mihai Ene, Adela Ene E+E House / Ene+Ene ArhitecturaSave this projectSaveE+E House / Ene+Ene Arhitectura 2019 Area:  280 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description CopyAbout this officeEne+Ene ArhitecturaOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRomaniaPublished on July 22, 2019Cite: “E+E House / Ene+Ene Arhitectura” 22 Jul 2019.

The site is in Kariya city, Aichi Prefecture in Japan, and there are many apartments to the concentration of affiliated companies of major automobile manufacturers in the surrounding area. On the other hand, many green spaces and fields like farm left for development by the Green Land Law remain. The owner has lived in this area for many years and has long been a landowner who owns this site and many others.Save this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsWhen we build a new apartment in a rural area, we think about parking space. Around this site, where household income and marriage rates are high, two parking lots are common to each home. In the surrounding apartment, first, a large asphalt parking space was planned along the front road, and a building was planned in the surplus area inevitably. By such a construction method, a big shadow fell in the adjacent green space and the field, and we felt that it was also negative to the ecosystem including the human being who was brought up there. In this project, we propose a construction method to maintain the continuity of the ecosystem and keep the impact on the environment small when building rental housing in a local city where production green areas remain.Save this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsSpecifically, the necessary rooms of the apartment were first broken up into each room. And by rejoining them while floating in the air, we tried to open the ground surface and secure the terrestrial ecosystem from the adjacent production green area. Each room floated in the air cannot stand on its own, but it was structured so that each dwelling unit supported each other around the staircase room. As a result, the number of pillars falling to the ground was reduced as much as possible, and the pillars were made as thin as the planting stems of the exterior garden. We plan based on biological rationality to choose the most suitable pillar diameter depending on the condition so that the trunk becomes thick as the height of the plant becomes taller.Save this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsThe whole is connecting the 4 units of the same plan while rotating or reversing to increase the economy and rationality. In addition, we made a layout plan based on sun conditions and the surrounding environment. By building all the roofs and outer walls with the same material finish, this group of buildings is planned to form a forest with overlapping leaves. The uneven shape mixes the life of the resident with planting and animal ecosystems equally and dissolves in surrounding ecosystems. The operation to ecosystem including human beings leads to improvement of value as rental housing including a solution to noise problem with the neighboring door and securing of covered parking.Save this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!Courtesy of 1-1 ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessWhat Materials Keep Buildings Cool?ArticlesSummer Villa Arcadia Hotel / Kapsimalis ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Kariya, Aichi Prefecture, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.

Reform group calls for fundraising transparency from Irish charities

first_imgMaking information freely available and transparent to the public at all timesAdopting an honest and open approach on all fundraising activitiesProviding a clear assurance to donors that their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were givenEnsuring there is no misleading or ambiguous information in fundraising communications. The Irish Charities Tax Reform Group (ICTR) has called for charities to display full transparency and full accountability in how they fundraise and how fundraising money is allocated.The call comes in the wake of revelations about some leading health charities paying ‘top ups’ from fundraising income to senior staff. These revelations have produced a strong reaction from politicians, commentators and charity supporters and increased the demand for closer scrutiny of charities.“Charities should devote sufficient resources for wages and administration to ensure the highest standards in their operations, but must at all times display full transparency and full public accountability in how they fundraise and in how fundraised money is allocated,”ICTR said.It added that the charity regulatory body proposed under the 2009 Charities Act should proceed and be completed “without delay”. ICTR said the body should be adequately resourced, to ensure its full implementation and to provide both charities and the general public with clear understandings and assurances on issues such as governance, fundraising and financial reporting.The Irish government said it intends to set up the regulatory body in 2014.ICTR believes that all charities should operate according to clear and specific fundraising principles.

Talking to co-author, with Mumia Abu-Jamal of ‘Murder, Incorporated’

first_imgBy Ted KellyStephen Vittoria co-authored “Murder Incorporated — Perfecting Tyranny: Book Three (Empire, Genocide, and Manifest Destiny),” with Mumia Abu-Jamal. He also is the director of the 2012 documentary, “Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary.” Workers World conducted this interview in November 2020 prior to the book’s release.Workers World: When did you first hear about the frame-up of Mumia Abu-Jamal?Mumia Abu-Jamal, left, with Stephen VittoriaStephen Vittoria: In 1981, I was living and working in Los Angeles and was completely unaware of Mumia’s case. In many ways I feel like I was there and actually lived it, because of all the unofficial research I did in the mid-1990s, and then because of all the heavy duty “official” research I did when making the documentary “Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary.” Your mind plays games with you, like “I remember watching the TV reports,” or “I remember reading stories in the paper.” In reality, I was a blank slate.Unsurprisingly, the Philadelphia press and media lived up to — or should I say, stooped down to — levels that would make [the Nazi filmmaker] Leni Riefenstahl blush. When you read the gibberish that was passed off as “reporting” or “journalism,” it’s glaringly inept, blatantly racist and overtly one-sided. Clearly, the press were willing lapdogs for the state and operated as Xerox machines for Ed Rendell, Joseph McGill and the rest of the pathetic and dangerous minions manufacturing Mumia’s guilt, including the hanging judge, Albert Sabo, who must have prayed at the feet of [Chicago 8 judge] Julius Hoffman.When you read the coverage in historic context now, you can only categorize the Philadelphia press, and later the national press, as nothing more than stenographers and an echo chamber for the state. Like Bob Dylan wrote in the song Hurricane, “Couldn’t help but make me feel ashamed to live in a land where justice is a game.” And not just a game, but an utter and complete fabrication of the so-called facts and events that transpired on Dec. 9, 1981.WW: How did you get to know Mumia?SV: My first interaction with Mumia’s work was with the release of his first book, “Live From Death Row.” I remember there was a buzz around the book, because this treatise arrived from the bowels of America’s prison complex and was offering firsthand and personal insight from a prisoner on Death Row.His journalism offered powerful dispatches from inside America’s prison nation — one existing within the confines of a country that espoused liberty and freedom for all but instead delivered oppressive chains, not only to an exploding prison population but also to the massive poor and disenfranchised population throughout America.And all you had to do was read one page, and you instinctively knew that Mumia and the book would not disappoint. I was mesmerized by his ability to take epic themes and historic moments and make them personal, not only for himself and fellow prisoners but more importantly for his reader.And that’s an important point: Mumia rarely focuses on himself and his case in his books and commentaries. He expands the vision and fights for all people oppressed and in need — whether in prison, on the streets or even in this country. Like Thomas Paine, Mumia is a citizen of the planet.With everything stacked against our success writing and launching this book, most of all the practical issues inherent when one author is incarcerated on Death Row and the other is roaming around free, it was our camaraderie and singular vision and voice that drove us to the finish line.WW: “Murder Incorporated Vol. 1” begins with the arrival of colonial forces in North America. What was it like going through U.S. history with Mumia and analyzing how the U.S. became the global imperialist terror that it is today?SV: Analyzing the myth and reality of U.S. history is like dissecting a master’s magic trick. The sleight of hand or lies are so deep and so entrenched — and so embraced by the American public — that we both felt like we needed to go deep beneath the surface of spin and unearth the ugly reality of murder and mayhem, not to mention plunder and savagery that exist in service to predatory capitalism.The books operate as a truth serum or lie detector machine unmasking genocide and land-theft, the enslavement of Africans to build the country, the laughable embrace of Providence as the guiding hand of Manifest Destiny — that shining city on a hill and, of course, American Exceptionalism at any and all costs.It was imperative to both of us to break down the walls of lies and reveal the march of empire for what it really is: grotesque behavior supporting the 1%, to use a more modern characterization. Ultimately, our goal was to offer a diagnosis of a corrupt national pathology.Ultimately, Mumia and I learned a great deal from each other and our combined and individual research. From the outset, “Murder Incorporated” wasn’t only an exercise in historical writing and critique on our part, it was also a massive learning experience for us as well. It was a classroom of two, and it was the best class I ever attended.WW: What were some of the limitations you faced collaborating with Mumia while he is in prison?SV: No doubt the prison walls offered practical obstacles along the way. Two authors collaborating on a major undertaking never having the chance to work in a room together. Never having the opportunity to celebrate a milestone or creative success together. But we knew the limitations on us from the outset; we knew the ridiculous and nonsensical rules put in place by the Department of Corrections.During truncated phone calls, letters and occasional face-to-face visits without paperwork, we were able to generalize. But the key player here is Mumia, because manufactured guilt, concrete walls, barbed wire, loaded guns and the corrupt heavy hand of the Commonwealth can’t stop his spirit from rising, can’t stop his keen intellect from critiquing the mendacity of a murderous and racist government.I don’t have to worry about my cell getting tossed or my writing and research getting stolen or destroyed. I don’t have to worry about the life or health of my family on the outside, not being there when my mother passed away or my daughter or many others, or assisting my legal team in a harder than difficult legal struggle, so that one day I might walk free after being incarcerated for forty goddamn years for a crime I did not commit. I don’t have any of that.For Mumia it’s hard as hell, and yet he does it with grace, passion, poetry and always with great intelligence. Even after all these years, I stand in awe of my partner.WW: What are the most important lessons you’d like your readers to take with them after reading “Murder Incorporated”?SV: Lesson number one: Don’t believe a goddamn thing you read or hear about American history from guild historians, the mainstream press or your uncle at Thanksgiving. It’s all a fairytale wrapped inside a Twinkie — including Thanksgiving. It’s a colossal marketing campaign that doesn’t adhere whatsoever to “truth in advertising.”Lesson number two: The myth is that America’s prized possessions and greatest exports are democracy and the dream of freedom. The reality, we contend, is that the American Dream is illusory, and that America’s greatest export is, in fact, murder — and along the way to the kill, it thieves, suppresses and tyrannizes.Lesson number three: America’s favorite pastime is not baseball but murder — and let’s start calling war what it really is: murder. Not collateral damage or defense or “we got to fight ’em there before we fight ’em here.” War is murder, like the old adage: Kill one person, call it murder. Kill a million, call it foreign policy.Lesson number four: “Don’t follow leaders; watch the parkin’ meters.”WW: Tell us a bit about the next volume, Vol. 3, and what readers can expect from this next installment. Will it be the final section? Do you plan on collaborating again?SV: This volume kicks off with a foreword by Angela Davis, and we’re honored to include her contribution. And in book three, “Perfecting Tyranny,” we continue an epic recounting of the history — and the present reality — of America. Like the purported post-racial America, a myth busted six ways from Sunday, as evidenced by a Dodge Challenger flying a Confederate flag and plowing into a crowd of peaceful protesters.Or America’s fictitious “war on drugs,” which in its ruthless reality fueled the FBI and CIA’s true-life war on the Black freedom movement, a war that produced the Prison Industrial Complex. Or the Empire’s mass surveillance security state, one in which the citizens are now anesthetized to the entire illegal and depraved out-of-control operation. Or the central myth of America’s founding that the villagers are protected by a free press actively questioning authority rather than manufacturing consent.So book three, this final invective by your two authors, begs the question: Where do we go from here? Hopefully as a people and a nation, we don’t go from here to eternity.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Nearly all of the Republican representatives (242 out of 246) voted in favor of the bill. On Monday, the White House threatened to veto the bill if it should pass.A key part of the new bill delays the implementation of part of the “Volcker Rule,” a key piece of the Dodd-Frank Act that limits risky trading by financial institutions. The portion of the Volcker Rule delayed by the new bill had previously been put off by the Federal Reserve until 2017. The new bill gives financial firms another two years (until 2019) to sell off collateralized loan obligations, or bundled debt. Financially industry lobbyists have pushed for the further delay, which will keep them from having to sell off their investments in a fire sale.The new bill will also allow some private equity firms an exemption from registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission, relax derivative regulation, and permit the omission of historical financial data in filings by some small, publicly traded companies, according to reports.Republicans have promised to take aim at the Dodd-Frank Act since they gained a majority in both the House and Senate in November’s elections. The Dodd-Frank Act was passed in response to the financial crisis and it was intended to protect consumers and prevent another similar economic downturn, but Dodd-Frank opponents believe that the legislation embodies overregulation and as a result has had the opposite of its intended effect.Democrats, led by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), one of Dodd-Frank’s fiercest backers and the creator of the controversial Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, have vowed they will fight against any attempts by Republicans to chip away at Dodd-Frank. The new bill moved through the House quickly, but is not likely to gain the support in the Senate needed to override a presidential veto.

It’s hard to overlook them.“I’ve never been so surprised in my life as when I came outside and saw this large, yellow bloom on one of the elephant ears,” Austin said. “I’ve had these plants all these years and they have never bloomed before. I was shocked. I didn’t know they bloomed.” Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Austin said one of the elephant ears has produced seven large, yellow blooms this fall and the other has produced two.“The blooms didn’t come at the same time,” she said. “They came one at time and, when one bloom dies, it leaves a big bulb about the size of a cucumber on the trunk. I’ve never seen anything like it.”Dr. Alvin Diamond, assistant professor, Troy University Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences and director of the Troy University Arboretum, said that the elephant ear that most people grow is commonly known as the Wild Taro or Coco Yam and it’s fairly common in wet areas of the state. By The Penny Hoarder Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “I know they haven’t bloomed before and I don’t know why they are blooming this year,” Austin said. “But the blooms are pretty and, for whatever reason, it’s been very interesting to have elephant ears that bloom.”Because it has taken Austin’s elephant ears 45 years to bloom, she’s not going to spend too much time trying to decide why they are blooming. Right now, she’s just enjoying this special and beautiful surprise from Mother Nature.

Woman with baby in car crashes through front of LA police station, tries to back out

first_imgKABC(LOS ANGELES) — A woman has been arrested after she plowed through the front of a Los Angeles police station with a baby in her car — and then tried to back out as cops clung to the vehicle.The bizarre incident happened at about 4:45 a.m. on Saturday morning at the Harbor Area station in San Pedro, California.Police released surveillance video of the entire incident. The driver can be seen plowing through the glass front doors of the station and right into the lobby of the building. The car sits at the empty front desk for a few seconds before an officer emerges to check out the noise.After slowly coming out from behind the desk and approaching the car’s driver’s side window, the woman opens the front door. The officer hesitantly speaks to the woman for about a minute before two other officers emerge and the woman attempts to back out of the lobby.She knocks a coffee table out of the way and backs through the front doors.According to police, the woman’s car was trapped by a metal barrier and she was then taken into custody.“Officers took the woman into custody and are trying to learn what her intentions were to determine what if any charges need to be filed,” police said in a statement.Police officials told Los Angeles ABC station KABC the woman may have been driving under the influence.The woman and child were taken to the hospital for evaluation, but were not seriously injured.The lobby was closed at the time of the accident, so no officers were in the area. Police said a temporary base of operations for the department has been set up for use while the city determines whether the building is structurally safe.Authorities have not released the name of the driver. It is also unknown whether the woman was the infant’s mother.The woman’s white sedan was taken away on a flatbed truck later in the day on Saturday. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
