A crafted volume is carefully connected to the retained and refashioned rear of an original 1960’s yellow brick envelope to enact clear planning, cost and environmental values in an articulated binary composition – a cellular and private front to the street, with an open and public rear that expands to its landscape setting. The owners, a young couple, moved from Melbourne to embrace a beach lifestyle on the southern fringes of Sydney and commissioned a transformation to their home to accommodate their way of living with Ian, their energetic kelpie.Save this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographySave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographyThe original bungalow allows the cultural value of its suburban type to be preserved within its locality, while also supporting environmental and budget outcomes. Its interior carefully configures a program of bedrooms and service spaces, with vaulted skylights carved within the original roof expanding several spaces to light and sky. A sharply folding intermediary form spatially unlocks a compressed front hall while allowing the location of interstitial courtyards for light, ventilation and multiple aspects at the centre of the plan – in turn promoting an interplay of private and public rooms across front and rear zones.The two-storey pavilion provides a volumetrically expansive double-height living area, and serves as a generously proportioned ‘garden room’ with large apertures capturing sky and landscape views. Its stair element extends the established circulation condition from the original front entry, while marking a loose threshold for the arrangement of two smaller rooms at one end of its volume – a ground level kitchen and a flexible upper floor sitting room that is adaptable as a bedroom or future study. It provides additional room for the owners to grow into, achieves improved privacy from neighbours and provides desired transparency for unfettered spatial relationships within its volume and across its two parts for strengthened connections to its place.Save this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographySave this picture!Section CSave this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographyIt employs an approach which enables strong visual connections to the existing brick character from within the new pavilion and creates a dichotomy of two differing material characters at either end within the new volume – while its binary play of considered honey and grey tones strongly reference the exterior yellow brick and grey metal of the two distinct structures. Glazing expanses harness natural light and promote passive cooling and heating, while external retractable blinds temper direct sunlight when required. A northern blade screen and a pinched-in rear profile enable greater solar access onto the generous thermal mass of a concrete wall and ground floor slab – with a cantilevered terrace edge and sculpted step element doubling as seats for enjoyment of the garden.Save this picture!© Brett Boardman PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Thorncrown Chapel / E.

In comparison, it received 176 during the equivalent period in 2017, and 1,210 throughout 2016-17.The reports cover a wide spectrum, with some relating to risks of harm identified by a charity, rather than to incidents of harm, such as internal audits showing that safeguarding procedures were not followed in certain situations.The 440 cases opened relate to safeguarding concerns raised in serious incident reports from charities, or complaints and whistleblowing reports, and are being prioritised according to risk.The new reports include those from 179 charities written to by the Secretary of State for International Development in February to seek reassurances that all appropriate incidents had been reported to the Commission. As at 9 April 2018, of the 179 charities Dfid issued the assurance request letter to, 33 charities had submitted incident reports. Of those 33 charities, 24 submitted reports relating to historic incidents. The 33 charities in total have now reported 219 incidents, 127 of which are historic.In total, 5,501 reports received between 1 April 2014 and 20 February 2018 have been put under review, with 3,300 of these reviewed so far. Of these incidents, just over 2,000 involved allegations of potential criminal behaviour with the Commission’s analysis identifying that only one of these was not reported to the authorities at the time. The Commission has ensured that this incident has now been reported to the police.According to the Commission, so far its analysis has not identified any cases where it has serious and urgent concerns that require immediate action, or where it needs to engage with the authorities about any ongoing risk or criminality.The review of historic reports is still underway, and once completed, the Commission has said it will publish a report setting out the key findings and lessons for charities.The announcement follows Penny Mordaunt MP’s March update on safeguarding progress.

Philadelphia marchers protest Ayotzinapa outrage

first_imgSome six months since 43 students disappeared in southern Mexico, their parents are traveling across the United States calling for justice.On Sept. 26 last year, the students from the Raúl Isidro Burgos Rural Teachers’ College of Ayotzinapa were forcibly disappeared after a police attack, sparking a series of nationwide protests. The violent repression of these protests made international headlines.From April 8 to 11, the Atlantic Region “Caravana 43” delegation spent four days in the Philadelphia area visiting Temple University, Haverford College, the University of Pennsylvania and other community venues. Their goal was to raise awareness here of the direct involvement of the U.S., through its foreign and economic policies, in the violence and repression experienced in Mexico.On April 10 in Love Park, after traditionally dressed performers had danced to drums and guitars, speakers explained that the Ayotzinapa incident has become representative of a much larger surge in violence. Over 100,000 people have died and 25,000 have disappeared over the last eight years in Mexico as a result of government corruption, organized crime and a failed war on drugs.The caravanistas displayed a 25-foot long white banner proclaiming “Ferguson = Ayotzinapa.” Carmen Guerrero had spoken earlier in the week to a Town Hall meeting of activists from the Coalition for REAL Justice fighting police violence. Some of those youth joined the Ayotzinapa event.Marching in the streets from Love Park to the Mexican Consulate, demonstrators carried bright banners and white crosses bearing the names of the 43 disappeared students. They chanted in Spanish and English, interrupted every few blocks by speakers who urged crowds on the sidewalks to get their political officials to oppose Plan Mexico. “Stop sending weapons to Mexico. They are used to murder innocent people,” Guerrero and other leaders said over the sound system.An end rally in front of the Mexican Consulate featured Anayeli Guerrero de la Cruz, sister of disappeared Oshivani Guerrero de la Cruz, and Felipe de la Cruz Sandoval, teacher and father of Ángel Nery, who survived the police attacks.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

El costo de la guerra de clases de COVID

first_imgEl 22 de febrero, las muertes relacionadas con el COVID-19 en Estados Unidos superaron las 500.000. Desde entonces, otras 55.000 personas han muerto a causa del virus, y las cifras tienden a aumentar. Se han perdido más vidas estadounidenses en esta pandemia que en los combates de la Primera y la Segunda Guerra Mundial juntas.El gasto militar combinado de Estados Unidos en esas dos grandes guerras fue un equivalente a más de $5,07 billones en dólares del 2019. Y el gasto militar se ha priorizado desde entonces. El presupuesto militar de 2020 -$721.500 millones – fue la mayor parte del presupuesto federal discrecional de Estados Unidos.En 2019, Estados Unidos gastó $35.400 millones en armas nucleares. En las próximas tres décadas, los planes de modernización de las armas nucleares podrían costar hasta $2 billones. Pidele al Congreso dinero para gastar haciendo la guerra y/o produciendo armas nucleares y probablemente desembolsarán más de lo que pediste. Eso llena las arcas de sus patrocinadores en el complejo militar-industrial. Pero sugiere aumentar el salario mínimo por hora a 15 dólares -lo que beneficiaría a más de 27 millones de trabajadores- y los políticos lucharán en contra con uñas y dientes.Los políticos de ambos partidos burgueses estaban dispuestos a ir a la guerra para bloquear la aprobación de un alivio largamente esperado para los trabajadores de bajos salarios – predominantemente la gente de color, los inmigrantes, las mujeres y los oprimidos de género – porque la nueva legislación del COVID incluía inicialmente el aumento del salario mínimo.Millones de personas que sobrevivieron al COVID-19 siguen enfrentándose a la pérdida de empleo y a los desahucios. Dos millones de personas pueden sufrir inseguridad alimentaria en Estados Unidos este año, pero aparentemente abordar la hambruna no es una prioridad del Congreso. Tampoco lo es la financiación de infraestructuras como las escuelas públicas, la vivienda y el transporte.El Plan de Rescate Americano de Biden, de $1.900 millones , firmado el 11 de marzo, fue descrito por el líder de la minoría de la Cámara de Representantes, Kevin McCarthy (republicano de California), como “demasiado costoso, demasiado corrupto y demasiado liberal”. Lo calificó como “una lista de prioridades de la izquierda que son anteriores a la pandemia y que no satisfacen las necesidades de las familias estadounidenses” durante un discurso en el hemiciclo el 10 de marzo.En parte tiene razón: las necesidades de las familias estadounidenses han sido ignoradas durante décadas, y las disposiciones del proyecto de ley de Biden no van lo suficientemente lejos para abordarlas.Necesidades de los trabajadores frente a codicia capitalistaLos políticos que votaron en contra del proyecto de ley afirmaron que estaban motivados por la preocupación de aumentar la deuda nacional. Retrocede a marzo de 2020, cuando Trump firmó la Ley CARES de $2,2 billones rodeado de los principales líderes del GOP. O viaja a 2017, cuando Trump firmó la Ley de Recorte de Impuestos y Empleos que recortó los impuestos a las empresas en $1,5 billones, lo que provocó que el gasto deficitario alcanzara los $984.000 millones y que el endeudamiento federal se disparara.La Ley CARES y tres medidas más pequeñas aprobadas en 2020, con el apoyo de ambos lados del pasillo, fueron elaboradas para asegurarse de que los mayores beneficiarios fueran las corporaciones y los individuos más ricos del país. Mientras que la Ley CARES dio pagos de estímulo de $1.200 a unos 159 millones de personas, esto fue un cambio pequeño en comparación con los miles de millones en exenciones fiscales adicionales entregadas al 1% durante varios años o con los costos totales de las guerras.El Comité Conjunto de Impuestos del Congreso descubrió que cinco disposiciones fiscales dirigidas específicamente a las familias más ricas, incluidos los Trump, costarían casi tanto como todos los cheques de estímulo juntos. Estas medidas dieron beneficios inmensamente mayores a las corporaciones y a un puñado de ultrarricos.A lo largo de la pandemia de coronavirus, la mayor preocupación de la mayoría de las corporaciones estadounidenses no ha sido el aumento del número de muertos, sino la caída de sus resultados. Los capitalistas pueden apostar en el mercado de valores y se beneficiarán de las exenciones fiscales que les otorgan los políticos lacayos. Pero sin trabajadores en el trabajo, que produzcan más riqueza para los jefes de lo que éstos les pagan en salarios, su sistema de beneficios empieza a desmoronarse.En el capitalismo, el trabajo es la fuente de toda la riqueza. La presión para que los trabajadores vuelvan a trabajar es lo que motivó a los políticos pro-capitalistas a tirar la cautela de COVID al viento y aprobar sólo medidas mínimas de alivio económico.Los trabajadores necesitan que se les garanticen unos ingresos mensuales dignos, que se les proteja contra los desahucios y que tengan un acceso adecuado a la alimentación y a la atención sanitaria, para que no se vean obligados a trabajar en condiciones inseguras durante la pandemia de COVID-19 sólo para sobrevivir. Esto es lo que tienen los trabajadores en los países socialistas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Authorities urged not to send Abdulla “Fahal” Saeed back to prison

first_img The South Asia Press Commission and Reporters Without Borders today appealed to interior minister Ahmed Thasmeen Ali not to send Abdulla “Fahala” Saeed back to prison at the end of a special leave granted to visit his family in Male which began on 30 July.Saeed, a journalist with the opposition newspaper Minivan, who received a life sentence for alleged drug possession and trafficking on 19 April 2006, is physically and psychologically debilitated after nine months of detention in harsh conditions. Aged 42, he is currently hospitalised for a week in Male after he fell down the stairs at home.“In view of his deteriorating health due to prison conditions and the controversial nature of his trial, we formally request that you to allow Abdulla Saeed to remain at home with his family,” the two organisations said in an appeal to the minister. “We think that it is more than necessary that Saeed should be allowed to benefit from house arrest while awaiting a review of his trial.”While at home, Saeed described the terrible conditions he has had to endure in Maafushi prison to the South Asia Press Commission and Reporters Without Borders.After being held for several months in a collective cell known for being used for hardened drug addicts, Saeed was transferred to the U2 high security wing and put in a small cell which he shared with another prisoner where there is little ventilation and he is rarely let out into the yard. It was only three months after the transfer that he got a fan.With no television and, until recently, no pen or paper, Saeed has had to rely on out-of-date pro-government newspapers. He says he is denied the rights accorded to other detainees, such as the right to take exercise. He now has high blood pressure and backbone pain. His family (wife and ten children) visited him in June but due to financial problems they did not go to Maafushi in July.Observers reported many irregularities during his trial. Reporters Without Borders and the South Asia Press Commission suspect that his life sentence was linked to articles critical of the government that he wrote for Minivan. During a mission to the Maldives, the two organisations met Saeed in Maafushi prison, where he insisted on his innocence.A report on press freedom in the Maldives was published in July by the International Press Freedom Mission, an independent group of international organisations that included Reporters Without Borders and the South Asia Press Commission. The report, which condemned the fate reserved for opposition journalists, is available at: http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=18305 August 3, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities urged not to send Abdulla “Fahal” Saeed back to prison to go further MaldivesAsia – Pacific RSF_en July 15, 2020 Find out more MaldivesAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on Maldives Receive email alerts RSF seeks press freedom pledges from Maldives presidential candidatescenter_img Help by sharing this information News Organisation April 23, 2018 Find out more RSF calls for open trial of Maldivian blogger’s accused murderers News News Maldivian president’s comms chief accused of sexually harassing journalist September 12, 2018 Find out morelast_img read more

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg heads to Capitol Hill after bittersweet graduation

first_imgABC News(PARKLAND, Fla.) — While most of his peers will be having fun soaking in their final summer before college, David Hogg will be traveling across the country to call for change, lobbying Washington, D.C. in an effort to protect students from mass shootings like the one he survived this year.After the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman High School in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students and staff teachers were killed, Hogg rose to prominence as one of the first students to speak out survivors in the spotlight.Hogg said he leaped into adulthood in the wake of the Feb. 14 attack, helping to force forcing a national conversation about gun control. But Now, just hours after receiving his high school diploma on Sunday, Hogg said he will continue to focus on common sense gun regulations and encourage young people to vote. but also incorporate broader goals looking to cast his net beyond gun control.“I’m gonna be taking a gap year and not going to college for a year so that I can continue to work on these issues and promote sensible legislation, for example — not just around gun control, but around youth voter turnout,” Hogg said in an interview with ABC News’ Nightline. “I think the fact that I was — that I got my draft card on my 18th birthday here — but the federal government can’t register me to vote is ridiculous.“There’s a reason why the youth of America are affected by so many issues that don’t affect other kids in more developed countries and it’s because we do not vote,” he added.He said he’ll be taking his cause directly to the lawmakers in Washington before setting out on a 60-day road trip called “March for Our Lives: Road to Change” that will take him from on more than 50 stops nationwide, from Florida to Alaska.“Over the summer I’m also gonna be going to D.C. a lot to lobby. And I’m gonna be traveling way more than I ever have in my life — to try to fix this issue,” he said.In the weeks and months after the February 14th shooting, Hogg says he worked to make sure the story didn’t fade from the national spotlight. Hogg was one of the first students to speak out on-camera after a former classmate allegedly stormed into his school and opened fire with an AR-15-style rifle.“I don’t think I really ever saw myself as an advocate before,” said Hogg, whose aspirations had included following his father’s footsteps in the FBI or a career in aerospace research. “I felt a necessity to speak out — as kind of the main architect behind the messaging of #NeverAgain because I was really one of the first people to do that and I was the first person, really, on camera from our school at the time,” he said. “I feel like a lot of the time the only story that came out was, ‘These kids they’re only for gun control,’ but that’s not the case” he said, noting their advocacy for mental health and behavioral intervention programs. . … We’re for a lot of things.”He didn’t know any of the victims personally, but he said their deaths thrust him into activism and forced him to think about complex issues that had never crossed his mind before.Hogg says he wants people to focus less on the politics of gun reform and more on saving young lives.“Think about the families that are out there right now who have never thought about gun control, never thought about mental health care funding, never thought about behavioral intervention programs or the NRA or any of this stuff, but will have to tomorrow,” he said, referring to the likelihood of another deadly school shooting. “Because tomorrow, they don’t know it yet, but their kid’s going to die and they’re gonna have to think about that for the rest of their lives.”Hogg stirred controversy recently with his protests and boycotts against corporations tied to the National Rifle Association (NRA). Hogg led a protest against Publix last month over their donations to Florida governor candidate Adam Putnam, an outspoken supporter of the NRA. Publix also made donations to Stoneman Douglas after the shooting.“That was like a huge kick to the stomach because you [Publix] say that you support us and then you go out and give [money to] a guy that’s literally an NRA sellout,” Hogg said. “I decided to do the ‘die-in’ at Publix because I was tired of the complacency again and again.“We need to hold corporate America responsible just like we hold our politicians responsible,” he added. The grocery company vowed to suspend all political contributions in the wake of the protests, which Hogg called “somewhat of a win,” but he wants more.“I ask Publix to take the money back. If they can’t take it out of Adam Putnam’s campaign, match that amount and donate it to the Stoneman Douglas Victims’ Fund,” he said. “When Publix supports an NRA sellout, they are absolutely complicit in those deaths.”Hogg says he plans to narrow the political divide around gun control through activism.Now, Hogg said he’s looking to focus on the aspects of gun violence that affect everyone.Hogg says he sees gun violence as a bipartisan issue and hopes to work across the aisle to enact change. “So long as we face this divisiveness in Washington and states and even at the local level amongst citizens, we’re never gonna solve this by working against each other. So why not work with each other? We all wanna save children’s lives,” Hogg said. “Bullets don’t discriminate. They don’t care if you’re a Republican or if you’re a Democrat… We have to make sure that the people that are in power that refuse to take action on this are no longer in power.”“The best way to prevent so many bad things is well-educated voting,” he added.“What affects everybody is a lack of voter turnout, resulting in these people getting elected that don’t wanna work to promote any common-sense gun legislation,” Hogg said.He plans to spend his entire summer traveling, boosting voter turnout among young people and focusing on issues he believes all Americans can identify with.“I think we’re going to, like, 75 stops over the summer, just constantly going to districts with youth that are affected by this, visiting people that are affected by this and getting youth out to vote,” he said about the bus trip, “March for Our Lives: Road to Change”.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Lower ionosphere monitoring by the South America VLF Network (SAVNET): C-region occurrence and atmospheric temperature variability

first_imgDaily profiles of phase measurements as observed on fixed VLF-paths generally show a transient phase advance, followed by a phase delay, for about 90 minutes after sunrise hours. This is indicative of a reflecting ionospheric C-region developing along the terminator line at an altitude below the normal D-region. The suggested occurrence of a C-region is consistent with rocket measurements made in the 1960’s, showing a maximum of the electron density between 64 and 68 km, and by radio sounding in the 1980’s. In order to correctly describe the properties of the phase effect associated with the presence of a C-region, it is important to understand the subionospheric propagation characteristics of the VLF-paths. In this paper, we analyze the variations presented by the temporal properties of the VLF narrow-band phase effect, and determined a parameter associated with the appearance of the C-region at sunrise hours observed by receivers from the South America VLF Network (SAVNET). Periodic patterns emerge from the parameter curves. Two distinct temporal behavior regimes can be identified: one exhibiting slow variations between March and October, and another one exhibiting faster variations between October and March. Solar illumination conditions and the geometrical configuration of the VLF paths relative to the sunrise terminator partly explain the slow variation regime. During periods of faster variations, we have observed good association with atmospheric temperature variability found in the measurements of the TIMED-SABER satellite instrument, which we assume to be related to the Winter Anomaly atmospheric phenomenon. However, when comparing the parameter time series with temperature curves, no direct one-to-one correspondence was found for transient events.last_img read more
