The Coop Housing is a jointly developed and administered project building upon experience gained from many previous self-made projects.Save this picture!DiagramIts mission: to harness its location’s unique potential to create a socially just, economically stable, and environmentally responsible urban building block.Save this picture!© Ute Zscharnt Open to the neighborhood and city Differentiation between private, communal, public spaces Options for contemporary forms of living Resource-saving, low-cost building Modular building design and construction Uniform fittings, sparingly used in the apartments Self-help construction Use-neutral building organization for living and working Self-production of renewable energy Economy of space: few elevators; shared and communal spaces Joint ownership for long-term affordable rents. Save this picture!© Eric TschernowThese were the significant objectives in 2008……Now we can summarize the characteristics of the project:Three buildings form a confident and distinct unity in their design and position in the urban space. Open to the river and the neighbors, they do not set themselves off like blocks. The individual and communal terraces have become a distinguishing feature; they offer a much-used compensation for the “loss” of open spaces to the public.Save this picture!© Ute ZscharntThe building design consists of predominantly simple support and construction systems that enable a rich variety of options for the organization of various uses. In this way, no two of the 64 apartment dwellings are alike, although they all follow the same principles.Save this picture!DiagramParticular care was taken to use only environmentally compatible building materials; the use of wood was reasonably maximized (wood panel exterior wall, wood wool insulation, solid wood balconies).Save this picture!© Ute ZscharntThe buildings comply with the Passive-House-Standard and produce their own regenerative energy through a cogeneration-unit, a geo-thermal-system and photovoltaics.Save this picture!DiagramIn addition to conventional units there are six cluster apartments that provide a communal living structure for groups of 4 to 21 people.Save this picture!© Michael MatuschkaThe residential population is quite diverse. It is multigenerational and multicultural, made possible by people both with and without money. Apartments are barrier-free; there is communal use of laundry rooms, fitness rooms, guest rooms, rooftop terraces, and the music and youth room.Save this picture!DiagramThe ground floor is largely open to the public, reflecting its attitude to the urban environment. It includes a carpentry workshop, catering kitchen, studios, daycare center, and a co-working space. Available to non-residents are Option Rooms – unassigned, unfinished spaces for community, social, or cultural projects. Option Rooms maintain the project’s open character at the juncture of living and urban development.Save this picture!© Michael MatuschkaThe ambitious budget helped to focus on the essentials.In exchange for the required equity capital, users could carry out needed construction work within their dwellings on-their-own. In this way, and also in showing solidarity by providing the necessary credit collateral, the project allowed the participation of people with very little capital.Save this picture!© Ute ZscharntRents are staggered and start at a level on par with government subsidized housing, without having received this subsidy. This has helped many of the Spreefeld residents, who could not otherwise afford to live in the city center under today’s conditions. Just as it was defined and administered from the start, participation has focused on collective concerns, uses, and spaces. The social skills that have developed throughout this process both enrich and facilitate a cooperative way of living. The objectives have been implemented for the most part, and the project generates income in the form of value in its use for both residents and the city. It produces new insights and has become part of the debate, allowing more people to have a say than just the “experts”. Save this picture!© Andreas TrogischProject gallerySee allShow lessHousing Extension in Puerto de Santa María / Yunes – TortoleroSelected Projects71 Above Restaurant / Tag Front ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Forty years of summers in Rawhiti had imprinted themselves on the Struthers. To accommodate the next generation of their family, Di and John wanted to replace their much-loved bach with one that would embrace the culture evolved over decades, would cater for anything from an intimate couple to a large celebratory crowd, and importantly become an heirloom for the next generation.Save this picture!© Simon DevittThe main building provides primary gathering spaces, main bedroom, informal ‘loft’ space, and boat store. Together these contain a trace of the spatial arrangements of the previous bach, leading to a form designed as an assemblage of objects, with intended misalignments, slippages and quirks. It climbs out of the ground, projecting out to near and distant views.Save this picture!© Simon DevittSave this picture!Plan 2While the bach was embedded in the family psyche, the additional structure, nicknamed the ‘sleep-out’, had no precedent; instead, it takes its lead from the site’s geographical qualities and, as a counterpoint to the main building, hunkers down into the hillside. Its bedrooms offer a retreat from the communal bustle of the main building. Shutters create a dynamic façade providing occupants with control over privacy and views to the landscape beyond. Together with the light-wells these look to manipulate the movement of light and air.Save this picture!© Simon DevittDispersing the functions into two structures lessened the impact on the sensitive setting, and activated an outdoor space that is left deliberately relaxed and spontaneous.Save this picture!SectionThe buildings have been designed to be long lasting, be grounded in the site, engage with the landscape, reinforce the sense of place, and sculpt light and views. Richness comes from a high level of craft, the quality of the spaces and the expression of materials, texture, colour, and grain. And ultimately, the design looked to reinforce and provide for a multiplicity of ways to come together, and share time and memories.Save this picture!© Simon DevittProject gallerySee allShow lessParc Central / BenoySelected ProjectsPLUKK Designs Town Hall and Community Center On Sloping Site in Czech RepublicUnbuilt Project Share Year:  2013 Projects Manufacturers: Australian Sustainable Hardwoods (ASH) Products translation missing: “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Rawhiti Bach / Studio Pacific Architecture CopyAbout this officeStudio Pacific ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRawhitiNew ZealandPublished on July 21, 2016Cite: “Rawhiti Bach / Studio Pacific Architecture” 21 Jul 2016.

This condition, in which the sense of the views is in a direction contrary to that of the angles of solar exposure, defines the strategy of building two patios, one that clears the gaze towards the sea, and another that projects to the north to capture the natural light that illuminates the most important spaces of the project.

first_imgLow-cost DRTV campaign for Merlin The advert will split test £3 and £5 asks and aims to recruit 400 monthly givers. It will air on a mix of satellite and cable channels, including UK Living, the Performance Channel and Fox News. If successful, it will be rolled out again in 2008, possibly on terrestrial and Freeview channels.Jindy Pal, Individual Giving Manager at Merlin, said that, although falling TV advertising rates had made a test DRTV campaign more attractive, it was using the archived footage that really made the advert cost-effective.“You can spend upwards of £100,000 just sending a film crew out to shoot new material”, he said, “and for a test of this size that was just not justified. In fact, I’d never want to spend that amount of money, not when we have shot such great footage over the years ourselves.” Pal estimated that Merlin has 300 hours of usable footage in its archive, along with other footage shot by volunteer and commissioned film makers.Derek Humphries, creative strategist and director at THINK Consulting Solutions, believes that this low-cost approach to DRTV will see the channel emerge from the preserve of the larger charities.“I feel certain,” he said, “we are about to see a resurgence of fundraising DRTV campaigns as the financial metrics become more attractive. As it is getting harder and more expensive to recruit donors by mail and door drops – and indeed all traditional recruitment media – so DRTV looks an increasingly attractive option. But to keep it a cost-effective option, charities need to bring costs under control, and one of the biggest cost centres is getting the raw material. Yet many charities have programme staff in the field equipped with digital cameras, so with a little training they will be able to shoot their own footage.”Peter Muffet, Director of THINK-DTV added: “By making DRTV so cost effective we are enabling smaller charities to compete with the NSPCC’s of this world.” Tagged with: Digital Individual giving About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgA contingent from the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights on May Day 2017 in Atlanta.Within 24 hours, two immigrants died in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody in Georgia.First came the shocking news of the death of 27-year-old Panamanian national, Jean Carlos Jiménez-Joseph, found in a solitary confinement cell at the Stewart Detention Center early on the morning of May 16, with his bed sheet wrapped around his neck.Described by his family and friends as a talented musician and high school athlete, Jiménez-Joseph had lived most of his life in the U.S.ICE took custody of him on March 2, following a conviction for motor vehicle larceny in Wake County, N.C., and brought him to the Stewart Detention Center, the for-profit prison operated by CoreCivic, formerly known as the Corrections Corporation of America. Stewart is located in rural Lumpkin, Ga., about 100 miles south of Atlanta.It currently is the second largest immigrant detention facility in the U.S., with a capacity of 1,752 detainees. Stewart is often cited for its human rights violations, including poor medical care, unsanitary conditions, inedible food and prolonged solitary confinement practices.When Jiménez-Joseph died, he had been held in solitary for 19 days, following what prison officials described as “an attempt to get attention” by jumping off a second floor walkway to the ground. There is no indication he was receiving any mental health services.ICE policies limit the use of solitary confinement as a punishment to 14 days. Even though international law condemns solitary confinement as a form of torture, it is used regularly in the U.S.Jiménez-Joseph’s mother had traveled from North Carolina to visit him on Saturday, May 13. Alarmed at his mental state, she asked members of El Refugio to visit him on Sunday. El Refugio is an immigrant advocacy group that operates a hospitality house in Lumpkin, where visiting families can stay since there are no motels in the area.However, prison officials refused her visit, saying that since he was in solitary, Jiménez-Joseph was allowed only one visit a month.By early morning, May 15, Jean Carlos Jiménez-Joseph was dead.The very next day, May 16, ICE announced that Atul Bahibhai Patel, a 58- year-old Indian man, had died in Atlanta’s Grady Hospital.Patel had been arrested May 10, upon arriving at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, for having incomplete travel documents. He was transferred to the Atlanta City Detention Center on the next day. The ACDC is a huge city jail that also serves as an immigration detention facility under contract with ICE.A preliminary medical screening indicated that Patel suffered from high blood pressure and diabetes.On May 13, he was taken to Grady Hospital. He died three days later, reportedly from congestive heart failure. Atlanta’s Indian community facilitated a Hindu cremation ceremony and the return of his ashes to his family in India.Increased torture and detention of immigrantsThe torture at the Stewart Detention Center was back in the headlines when it was revealed that, on May 12, federal Judge Leslie Abrams had ordered the force-feeding of Vitaly Novikov, a 61-year-old Ukrainian refugee who first came to the U.S. in 1989 and became a permanent resident in 1992.Following his conviction on a domestic abuse charge in February, he was arrested and held at Stewart. He was ordered to be deported on April 18 and began a hunger strike on April 20. Stewart officials say he has lost at least 35 pounds.According to the May 18 Daily Report, Alejandro Hernández, an ICE supervisory detention and deportation officer, wrote in a court filing requesting the force-feeding order that Novikov’s death “could lead to acts of detainee violence and disruptions,” and threaten the safety of staff. He furthered stated that Novikov’s death “might spur more hunger strikes to gain benefits … including transfer or release from Stewart.”Abrams’ order also gives permission for prison staff to forcibly restrain Novikov to take blood samples and conduct other medical tests. Stewart has released no further information about Novikov other than to confirm that there is a detainee on hunger strike.These stories of incarcerated people highlight the ramped-up enforcement of immigration laws since Trump’s inauguration as U.S. president.Between Jan. 20 and April 29, there has been a 75 percent increase in ICE arrests in Georgia and North and South Carolina compared to the same period in 2016. (­Atlanta Journal Constitution, May 18)Nationwide, the increase in arrests from 2016 is 38 percent. In 2017 so far, over 41,000 people have been picked up at their jobs, taken from their homes, arrested on the street without warning and taken into custody in advance of deportation. (TIME, May 17)Even ICE figures show that, among those arrested immediately after Trump’s inauguration, more than 25 percent of these working people had no criminal records at all, and another 25 percent had been convicted only of traffic offenses. (Washington Post, April 28)“The human rights of tens of thousands of immigrants are in constant peril at the hands of racist police forces, ruling class judges and courts, and for-profit prisons,” stated Kevin Caron of the Georgia Detention Watch, which has ongoing campaigns to shut down the Stewart Detention Center and the Atlanta City Detention Center.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Kamala Harris spent the majority of the debate attacking President Donald Trump’s record while Vice President Mike Pence was on the defense Wednesday night at the University of Utah.Pence and Harris made the coronavirus pandemic a major talking point during the debate.Harris quickly and constantly attacked Trump’s response to COVID-19.“The American people have witnessed the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country,” Harris said.Harris spoke about Trump’s comments earlier this year about COVID-19 being a hoax and made it clear the Trump administration had minimized the impact COVID-19 would have at the start of this pandemic.Pence refuted these claims and said, “I want the American people to know that from the very first day, President Donald Trump has put the health of the American people first.”Read more: Where each presidential candidate stands on health carePence said Democratic nominee Joe Biden had called Trump’s travel ban on China xenophobia. He added that under Biden’s presidency, the 210,000 people dead of the coronavirus would be near 2 million people.The subject of the economy, taxes — and whether or not they would be raised — loomed over the debate.Harris made a point to mention the New York Times story that revealed that Trump paid only $750 in federal income tax in 2016 and 2017.Harris also pressed the issue of Donald Trump and his debt.“It’d really be good to know who the president of the United States, the commander in chief, owes money to because the American people have a right to know what is influencing the president’s decisions,” said Harris.Pence reiterated Trump’s claims that he has paid millions of dollars in taxes over the years. Pence also urged the viewers to read the documents that have been released before and are directly available to them.Pence claimed the Biden administration would repeal Trump’s tax relief bill and raise taxes on everybody, causing more problems during a pandemic. Harris refuted these claims and reiterated Biden’s plan to only raise taxes on those who make over $400,000 per year. The two vice-presidential candidates were separated 12 feet and had plexiglass barriers separating them. This is due to concerns over Trump’s positive COVID-19 test and the many recent cases in the White House. The second of three presidential debates will be held Thursday, Oct. 15.

Pasadena had seen 2,016 infections and 109 fatalities, according to city data.Pasadena city spokesman Lisa Derederian said while the latest data was encouraging, it’s far too early to declare victory over the virus.“We want to be optimistic but not give a false sense of security, because we’re still receiving delayed numbers from Fourth of July weekend and an influx of younger positive cases,” Derderian said.While the pandemic spread most rapidly through older, more vulnerable populations in its earlier stages, in recent weeks people under 40 have come to represent the bulk of new infections.“The fear is they take it home to their parents and grandparents, which is an ongoing concern,” Derderian said. “The median age can reverse again.”Fifty COVID-19 patients were being treated at Huntington Hospital on Monday, hospital data shows. Thirty-one tests were pending.At the county level, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported 1,634 new infections and 12 deaths on Monday, bringing the totals to 193,788 known COVID-19 cases and 4,701 deaths.“The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health expressed cautious optimism today that community spread of COVID-19 in L.A. County has slowed and that other key indicators are stabilizing,” the agency reported in a written statement.“The positive trends can be attributed to a variety of things, including the decreased opportunities for transmission, particularly in high-risk settings,” the statement added. “Several weeks ago, bars were closed, and the indoor operations of a variety of businesses and institutions were moved outdoors.”Over the past seven days, L.A. County saw an average of 2,600 new infections per day, officials said. In the past week, the daily average was more than 3,000.“The seven-day positivity rate has remained mostly flat over the month of July, hovering between 8 and 8.8 percent,” according to the statement. “And finally, hospitalizations, which is a key indicator of health system capacity, is on a positive trend with 2,000 hospitalizations on average. This number had ticked up to 2,200 in the middle of July. Although all of these key indicators are still too high, the plateauing of the trends is encouraging.”The county’s overall positivity rate stood at about 10 percent, with more than 1.8 million tests administered in the county, according to the Department of Public Health.Officials said 1,784 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized in the county on Monday, with 30 percent of them in intensive care units and 18 percent being treated with ventilators.“The key indicators that we closely monitor at Public Health are looking positive, and I want to give credit to a large number of our county residents who heeded our orders and took the personal, basic actions needed to slow this virus,” said L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer.“Folks wore their face coverings, they maintained physical distance from people they don’t live with, avoided gatherings and parties, and washed their hands,” Ferrer said. “But for our long-term success, we need to continue limiting the spread of COVID-19. We can’t simply go back to life as we knew it before March. We unfortunately still have a long way to go; we must remain vigilant.”Gov. Gavin Newsom announced 5,739 new detected infections on Monday, placing the seven-day daily average at 7,764 cases, down about 21.2 percent from the prior week’s daily average of 9,859. “That’s some good news,” Newsom said.Thirty-two new fatalities were also announced by the California Department of Public Health.The state’s positivity rate over the past week declined to 6.1 percent, down from 7.5 percent last week, the governor said. The positivity rate over the previous two weeks dropped to 7 percent on Monday, up from about 8 percent last week.“It’s not where it needs to be. It is still too high,” Newsom said. “But, again, it is good to see this number trending down, not trending up.”The state on Monday had seen 514,901 total known infections and 9,388 deaths since the start of the pandemic, according to state data.As of Monday, L.A. County accounted for 38 percent of California’s known COVID-19 cases and 50 percent of all the state’s deaths. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Your email address will not be published.

Provisional statistics from the Health and Safety Executive show fatalinjuries in 2000/2001 increased to 295 – up 75 on the previous year. And the rate of fatal injury to workers is expected to rise substantiallythis year, bucking the downward trend seen in the 1990s, said the HSE. It isestimated to increase to 1.1 per 1 million workers – up from 0.8 the yearbefore – the highest level seen since the mid-1990s. The fatal injury rate for staff and the self-employed is also expected tohave increased when final figures are published next month. Falls from a height, being struck by a moving vehicle or moving or fallingobjects continue to be the most common causes of fatal injury, accounting for25, 22 and 18 per cent respectively of fatal injuries to workers. The number of falls from a height rose from 68 in 1999/2000 to 73 in2000/01, although this figure is still lower than two years ago. Deaths caused by being struck by a moving vehicle increased from 34 to 64,and are at the highest level since 1991/92. But the rate for non-fatal major injuries is expected to be 110.3 per100,000 – 5 per cent lower than the previous year, continuing the downwardtrend. The most common causes of non-fatal major injuries continue to be slipping,tripping and falling from a height. The over-three-day injury rate is also expected to show a slight fall, down2 per cent on 1999/2000. Injuries sustained while handling, lifting or carrying or due to slippingand tripping remain the most common kind of over-three-day injuries. TUC general secretary John Monks said employers should be compelled toinvestigate all significant workplace accidents, including road trafficaccidents and bullying. “The law must not be a bureaucratic paper chase, or an exercise inshutting the stable door after the horse has bolted,” he said.

first_img Comments are closed. An ongoing training programme at a Welsh sports retailer is helping thecompany through a major expansion programme by ensuring staff turnover is keptto a minimum. Gilesports, the Merthyr Tydfil-based sports chain, has managed to retain themajority of its home-grown talent – essential to store openings planned for thenext few years. A series of NVQ-based courses have proved popular, with more than 180 staffapplying for them, up from just 50 two years ago. Gilesports, which operates 83 shops with around 900 staff, starteddeveloping the training strategy in 2001 and now operates a tailored coursethat leads to recognised NVQ qualifications. Linda Lavender, HR manager at the firm, said the training was attractive tostaff because it enabled them to gain qualifications while in the workplace. “The programme has raised training’s profile and more people areactually asking for training. This is highly motivational and people canunderstand the contribution they can make and the progression available tothem,” she said. “What staff get is training that’s specific to what Gilesports needs,not what a generic NVQ course says they should have.” Related posts:No related photos.
