This house, located in Owczarnia, a village near Warsaw, to a large degree owes its form to its owners, who, wanting a personalized, unique look, agreed to a spatial composition that departed from that of the archetypal home. The result was a building they came to call “the sarcophagus,” “the battleship” or “the crystal.”Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiIts asymmetrical roof consists of four planes of differing slopes covered in graphite panels that flow down into the northern and eastern walls, creating a seamless shell. The southern and western walls were finished with wooden boards that join with the wooden surface of the terrace, together becoming one compositionally inseparable part in this interlocking form.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiThe home’s ultimate geometry reflects the functional considerations of its design. The ridge of the roof sweeps up from the ground floor to the upper story, making each subsequent room able to take advantage of a higher ceiling. The space thus created above the children’s rooms was used for mezzanines, that above the utility area became a storage space and additional storage room also opened up over the bathroom and closet. Walking the hall, one sees the asymmetrical gable of the roof soaring upward, braced by ever higher girders. The roof hits its peak height above the upstairs rooms. Having mounted its summit, it then rumbles rapidly downward, creating very rich interiors in terms of their structural variety. This descent halts in the far corner of the living room, where an exposed roof truss marks its lowest point. The crescendoing ceiling heights and geometrically-varied girders create interiors that take on a sense of dynamism and lack of repetition.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiA crucial design consideration was to let the maximum amount of light into the living room, which was thus situated in the sunniest part of the plot. Its long horizontal window catches the noonday sun, while its high vertical windows welcome the sunset.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiThe ground floor contains a living room, dining room and kitchen, as well as an office and a sleeping area for the children consisting of two rooms and bathroom. The upper floor holds the master bedroom, which has a bathroom and walk-in closet.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiA freestanding fireplace attached to a long stainless steel pipe was placed in house’s lowest corner, in the living room. The interiors have been left in a very raw state, with their finishings planned to make use of the same materials employed for the core construction, i.e. bricks for the walls and concrete for the floors and ceilings.Save this picture!© Jan Karol GołębiewskiProject gallerySee allShow lessCritical Round-Up: The Louvre Abu Dhabi by Jean NouvelArticlesFirst Images of What is Set to Become the Largest Botanic Garden in the World RevealedArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Jan Karol Gołębiewski+ 20 Share 2017 CopyAbout this officeBeczak / Beczak / ArchitekciOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOwczarniaPolandPublished on November 21, 2017Cite: “CWA House / Beczak / Beczak / Architekci ” 21 Nov 2017.

This luxurious residence, which has just been completed recently, is absolute example of a design that satisfies the owners’ preference more than just to satisfy architect’s taste. The owners who are successful in their business are also highly experienced in life and have a different architectural conception. While the husband loves the unique and creative style, the wife favors something that is practical and convenient. Combined, they inspired Architect Tran Le Quoc Binh for an ingenious design.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Elevation 01Save this picture!© Quang DamFrom outside, the lush greenery-covered fence steers passer-by’s into a realm of awe, only to reveal the radiant masterpiece behind it- the house. Just behind the gate, a distinctive presence immerses visitors in wonder, displaying a gallery of exotic shapes combined with timber slating – the terraced field house style. All of this is what makes the house so unique.Save this picture!© Quang DamIn the living room, a “bird nest” style pendant attached to the ceiling is compatible with the timber wrapped around the elevator, analogous to a bird nest and a tree. The balustrade panels are engraved with intricate flower patterns. The dining and kitchen areas both fit the styles and needs of the owners. Both have an open view to the garden. Materials in the kitchen are easy to clean and maintain. The dining table set matches the use of timber for the ceiling and floor.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe theater room is installed with high tech equipment, with sound insulation and absorptive materials combined with the velvet walls creating a cinematic experience. Besides that, using the effect of water factors such as swimming pool and Koi fish pond, which is divided by a greenery is also an idea to harmonize and adapt to the differences between husband and wife.Save this picture!© Quang DamInterior spaces mainly focus on convenience, which every detail is treated as carefully as possible to maximize the convenience for the users. The owners set a clear goal for their home from the beginning: to make sure every time they come home, it is more comfortable than being in any hotel or resort. This beautiful house already satisfies both husband and wife: the facade and exterior makes the husband happy while the interior satisfies the wife with all functions in her expectation.Save this picture!© Quang DamProject gallerySee allShow lessInternational Department of Beijing Private JunYi Middle School / EDO ARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsThe Workshop / Annabelle Tugby ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: QBi Corp.

Clockwork Pie claims to be UK’s “first digital fundraising agency”

Instead there were “DM agencies who have a couple of developers trying to turn leaflets into websites and digital agencies trying to figure out the nuances between e-commerce and actual fundraising”.Hassan has of course worked with and for agencies over the last 10 years.“I always found mentioning the idea of financial KPIs to which an agency would be held accountable for, was followed by a sharp intake of breath and various caveats being strung out”. He describes this as “truly staggering given that we’ve been encouraging and growing online giving since well before we heralded in the new millennium”.How Clockwork Pie startedHassan explains how the agency was created.

Nueva Central de Trabajadores de México a la ofensiva

first_imgSi el 1ro de enero de 1994 las y los heroicos rebeldes indígenas de Chiapas bajo el EZLN lanzaron el grito de lucha tras la entrada en vigor del TLCAN; hoy en 2017 una considerable parte del pueblo mexicano se encuentra en diversas luchas de resistencia. Muchas de las cuales han sido por el efecto causado por ese nefasto TLC que llevó a México ser una neocolonia del capital internacional, predominantemente estadounidense. Habiendo perdido su soberanía económica, México se encuentra a merced de Wall Street y por consecuencia, a la crisis del gran capital liderado por los EUA.Pero el deterioro económico y social resultante, lo que ha provocado – aparte de la miseria y la consecuente migración hacia el “gigante del norte” – es una indignación y un fuerte deseo de lucha popular. Desde la lucha del magisterio y los mineros, pasando por la de justicia por los 43 de Ayotzinapa, hasta las recientes y multitudinarias protestas extendidas por el país contra la imposición hasta de un 20 por ciento de aumento en el precio de la gasolina – denominado “el gasolinazo”, el pueblo se ha estado manifestando en las calles.Como escribió la compañera Teresa Gutiérrez en su artículo “Advertencia a Trump: Critique a México, se provoca revolución“ en la edición del 1ro de febrero de Workers World-Mundo Obrero, “México está maduro para el cambio revolucionario. El gobierno mexicano podría ser derribado en cualquier momento si no fuera por los miles de millones que los EUA envían bajo el pretexto de combatir las drogas”.Es en este contexto histórico que se celebró el pasado 27-29 de enero, el II Congreso Ordinario Nacional de la Nueva Central de Trabajadores de México. En comunicado de prensa, José Humberto Montes de Oca Luna, Coordinador de la Estructura Ejecutiva y Secretario del Exterior del Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas (SME) dijo: “Con la presencia de una importante delegación de invitados internacionales de Brasil, Argentina, Uruguay, Estados Unidos, Nicaragua, Australia y Suiza, así como de cerca de 300 delegados de más de 50 organizaciones provenientes de 20 estados de la República, culminó exitosamente nuestro Segundo Congreso”.Previo al congreso, se envió ampliamente el documento “Acerca de la situación actual” para el análisis y discusión política. Luego de un análisis de la crisis capitalista, se exponía la situación nacional, terminando con la “Táctica de la NCT en la coyuntura del 2017”.Algunas de las resoluciones incluidas en el comunicado ilustran la esencia de esta nueva central. Entre ellas destacan:Un pronunciamiento “en contra de Donald Trump por su política anti mexicana, racista, anti inmigrante, misógina y retrógrada, a partir de su discurso proteccionista y neonazi.     Rechaza tajantemente el gasolinazo impuesto por el gobierno de Enrique Peña Nieto y se compromete a apoyar las protestas populares… proponiendo que el 5 de febrero se realicen Asambleas Populares en todas las plazas públicas para organizar una gran Jornada Nacional de Lucha, un Día Nacional de Protesta el 16 de febrero próximo…     Se solidariza con las principales luchas y exige la aparición con vida de los 43 normalistas de Ayotzinapa…     Lanzar una Campaña de Afiliación individual y directa de los trabajadores y trabajadoras no organizados …, que estén dispuestos a formar Sindicatos o Comités de Lucha para sumarse a la Nueva Central…     Asimismo realizará una campaña de organización de la juventud trabajadora.     Apoyará las luchas de los migrantes mexicanos en EUA, con quienes buscaremos una coordinación binacional, para luchar conjuntamente contra las deportaciones masivas que pretende realizar Donald Trump.     Convoca a la Jornada Internacional por un paro de mujeres el próximo 8 de marzo, realizando una gran movilización en contra de los feminicidios y por los derechos de la mujer”.Además, incluye solidaridad con las luchas de los pueblos latinoamericanos contra el neoliberalismo y la ofensiva Trump. Termina el comunicado diciendo que “La NCT comienza una nueva etapa en su construcción por la emancipación social, política y económica de la clase trabajadora de México y el Mundo”.¿Cómo surgió la NCT?En el año 2011, durante una Conferencia Nacional Sindical, el SME presentó una ponencia titulada “Por una nueva central de trabajadores del campo y la ciudad”, lo que luego de debates, hizo surgir la propuesta de construcción de una central incluyente, democrática y clasista que aunara los diversos sectores de la clase obrera.La propuesta del programa se ha basado en un análisis profundo de la situación en México, no sólo desde el TCLAN, sino históricamente desde la revolución del 1910-17, dentro del contexto internacional y de los avances del capitalismo hacia formas más depredadoras. El programa completo se puede leer en importante destacar el carácter clasista de esta Central y su compromiso por la unidad de las fuerzas progresistas mexicanas, el esfuerzo por la formación ideológica representado en dos escuelas de formación sindical apoyadas por la Fundación Rosa Luxemburgo, y el trabajo de diseminación política a través de su periódico y la utilización de los medios sociales virtuales.La NCT se describe como una central autónoma, democrática, solidaria, internacionalista, independiente y anticapitalista. La componen 60 organizaciones, entre las cuales se encuentran dos centrales sindicales que agrupan 12 sindicatos. Además de una Confederación de organizaciones cooperativistas, Alianza Cooperativista Nacional, con cerca de 200 cooperativas.Montes de Oca le comentó a WW-MO: “El Congreso fue exitoso en tanto pudo congregar 50 organizaciones sindicales y populares de 22 estados de la República, pero sobre todo por sus definiciones políticas que nos permitirán lanzar una nueva etapa de construcción que incluirá la organización de los trabajadores no organizados, resaltando el papel fundamental de las mujeres y jóvenes en este proceso”.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Trans Day of Action for Social and Economic Justice

The High Powered Committee was set up as per directions of the Supreme Court in the suo moto matter Re: Contagion of COVID-19, to decongest the Delhi prisons in light of novel coronavirus pandemic. So far, on the basis of the criteria set by the committee, a total of 5114 prisoners have been released on interim bail/emergency parole till 27/11/20. In the meeting held on Nov 28, the Director General (Prisons) brought to the notice of the committee that if 3499 UTPs and 1183 convicts who have been granted ‘interim bail/emergency parole’ under different criteria laid down by this Committee are asked to surrender, then the total population of Delhi Prison is likely to reach 20500, which would be unprecedented and may become unmanageable owing to the present situation and circumstances. DG (Prisons) further informed the committee that till date only on one occasion the maximum population of Delhi Prisons has touched 18,000 in this year. While observing that the COVID19 situation in Delhi has taken a 360-degree turn, the committee noted that: ‘This sudden spurt of COVID – 19 cases in Delhi reflects that there is no certainty when the threat of pandemic shall be over. Taking this into account, Members of the Committee are of the view that the interim bail granted to 3499 UTPs and 1183 convicts who are on ‘interim bail/emergency parole’ under the criteria laid down by HPC, if at this stage are not extended, and the UTPs/Convicts are asked to surrender at this time then it, would be a dangerous proposition, as they might bring with them the infection. The Committee is, therefore, of the considered opinion that no such chance/risk can be taken and thus resolved that interim bail granted to 3499 UTPs needs to be further extended for a period of 45 days.’ The committee has further directed the Member Secretary of Delhi State Legal Services Authority (DSLSA) to place this order before the Registrar General of the Delhi High Court for seeking appropriate judicial order on the recommendations of the committee.

Body found amid days-long search for 23-year-old Anitra Gunn: Georgia officials

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(MACON, Ga.) — A body has been recovered amid the desperate search for Anitra Gunn, a 23-year-old woman who mysteriously disappeared days ago in Georgia, authorities said.The Fort Valley Department of Public Safety said a woman’s body was found Tuesday afternoon near the border of Peach County and Crawford County.The identity of the body was not yet known, said Department of Public Safety Chief Lawrence Spurgeon, but officials with the Peach County Sheriff’s Office said the body was Gunn’s. They did not immediately provide additional information.Gunn was last seen on Friday, Feb. 14, at approximately 11:30 a.m., just outside Fort Valley, according to the Department of Public Safety. Fort Valley is about 30 miles outside of Macon.Gunn’s family contacted the police on Saturday when they couldn’t reach her, and later on Saturday, the 23-year-old’s car was found in the city limits of Fort Valley, authorities said.“The longer these things go out, the higher the possibility it could be foul play, but we’re holding onto hope,” Spurgeon told ABC News Tuesday morning.“My mind just racing 100 miles an hour,” Christopher Gunn told Macon ABC affiliate WGXA “As a father, it hurts there’s not a lot I can do.”“If any harm has befell this young lady,” Spurgeon added in a statement Monday, “the arrest and prosecution of the subject or subjects responsible will be of the highest priority for all agencies.”Anyone with any information is asked to call the police department at 478-825-3384.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Arboretum recognized for nationally accredited collections

first_img Read Full Story “The Plant Collections Network (PCN) of the American Public Gardens Association recently bestowed national accreditation status to two genera in the Arnold Arboretum’s collections: Forsythia and Ginkgo. Along with six previously recognized genera — Acer (maple), Carya (hickory), Fagus (beech), Stewartia, Syringa (lilac), and Tsuga (hemlock) — the Arboretum’s eight national collections represent some of the most diverse, well documented, and widely studied collections of their kind.“The Arnold Arboretum is one of the great museums of the world. And while there are no paintings, sculptures, or archaeological objects, the 15,000 accessioned living objects — namely our trees, shrubs, and lianas — constitute an extraordinary set of curated holdings,” said William (Ned) Friedman, Arnold Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology and director of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University. Like every museum, the Arnold Arboretum never stops collecting and aspiring to acquire new objects to make its core holdings even stronger — from both horticultural and botanical perspectives.“As the Arnold Arboretum has emerged as one of the most active botanical gardens in the world collecting in the wild, we have been able to boost some of our key genera,” he continued. “In this case, our Ginkgo and Forsythia collections are now recognized as the preeminent holdings of these plant groups in North America.”Forsythia suspensa Atrocaulisi: A historic cultivar of the species Forsythia suspensa selected for its deep mahogany stems and large, pale yellow flowers.PCN is a longstanding collaboration between the American Public Gardens Association and the USDA-Agricultural Research Service. The program recognizes exemplary collections that serve critical conservation and research needs. Collections are awarded status following the preparation and submission of a lengthy application and peer review process. Genera considered for accreditation must be maintained at the highest horticultural, arboricultural, and curatorial standards, and qualifying institutions must also demonstrate a long-term commitment to their care and management.Pam Allenstein, Plant Collections Network manager, said the Arnold Arboretum is exemplary among public gardens in actively curating well-documented plant collections. “Its commitment to excellence, research, and forward planning has been recognized by our association’s Plant Collections Network and is to be commended on stewarding eight nationally accredited plant collections,” she said.Michael Dosmann, keeper of the Living Collections at the Arboretum, said it’s an honor to see these two collections recognized by the PCN.“There are people in the Americas who are thinking and acting in ways for plant conservation, creating a system to promote collection and improve curatorial practices for the greater good,” he said.Ginkgo biloba: The characteristic cleft leaves give the species the specific epithet “biloba.”last_img read more
