We talked about the garden, about the many trees already there. Would it be possible to keep the palm tree? We talked about the house. It would have to be small. But he would need a corner to listen to music, and lots of light coming from all sides.Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThis is a house in a secret garden, a house in its own world, open to nature, even though surrounded by the dense urban fabric of Athens. Hidden behind the trees, the house accepts the garden, it integrates its colors, its shadows, its changing over time. A linear pool accentuates geometries. The garden enters the house through the windows, connects the front to the back. Nature is dominant. Save this picture!© Yiorgis YerolymbosThe house consists of a concrete base and a white, metal-structure ‘beam’, a linear projecting ‘bridge’ that balances on the base, its folded ends open to the view. In a clear distinction between more public and private areas, the base houses the living areas while the white ‘bridge’ houses the bedrooms. Opening up to both sides the interior allows views of the garden to flood the interior. The program is simple: living room and kitchen on the ground floor, two bedroom-suites on the upper floor that open up to the green roof, and gym, guest room and utilities placed in the basement. A black metal staircase connecting all three levels evolves like a geometric ‘flower’ and becomes a point of reference. The two main floors are visually connected through a glass floor, while a skylight on top brings natural light in.Save this picture!SectionWhite walls for the owners’ collection of paintings, wooden floors, black aluminum window frames, black metal and transparent glass, a revolving mirror door that separates the livingroom from the kitchen. Reflections, unexpected views of the garden through a horizontal slit on the concrete structure, another one for the kitchen, the view of a tree framed by a square window in the livingroom. Untreated reinforced concrete with visible the marks of the formwork for the main structure, thermal plaster on the white ‘beam’ of the upper floor and the almost black cube of the kitchen. A galvanized steel door and fence hides the building from the street. The house can now surrender to the garden.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessLucien Cornil Student Residence / A+ArchitectureSelected ProjectsLubango Centre / PROMONTORIOSelected Projects Share Houses House in a Garden / RS SparchSave this projectSaveHouse in a Garden / RS Sparch Greece CopyAbout this officeRS SparchOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAthensGreecePublished on February 21, 2018Cite: “House in a Garden / RS Sparch” 21 Feb 2018.

Legacy Foresight invites charities to join new research project

first_imgLegacy Foresight invites charities to join new research project Melanie May | 23 July 2020 | News Legacy Foresight is inviting charities to join its next In-memory Insight research project: Adapting to the in-memory landscape after the pandemic. The emphasis will be on the impact on the in-memory giving landscape over the next one to three years, on providing practical ideas about what to do next, and looking at the challenges and opportunities charities will face.The programme will start in autumn 2020, and will:Examine how in-memory supporters and fundraisers have adapted to the new environmentIdentify new trends likely to have lasting impact on remembrance and in-memory givingOutline what a charity’s role can be in providing opportunities to give as part of the grieving process and the implications for resources and supportReflect on what the experience teaches us about new ideas or new ways of connecting with in-memory donors in the futureDevelop ideas on longer-term trends, aiming to identify new forms of remembrance that may become part of the future in-memory landscape and new ways of connecting with tomorrow’s in-memory donorsSince the In-Memory Insight programme started ten years ago, over eighty charities and hospices have taken part.Tish Ley, In-Memory Engagement Manager at Guide Dogs, said:“Since Guide Dogs became a member of In-Memory Insight, our annual in-memory income has almost doubled. This is a direct result of implementing a new strategy and supporter journey, building on the lessons the research provided.”“In-Memory Insight provides a strong foundation for in-memory giving for all charities. It is a catalyst for larger charities to commit time and space to grow giving. Fundraisers at smaller charities can take away simple ideas, implement them and have an immediate impact.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Coal baron gets slap on wrist for death of 29 miners

first_imgCharleston, W.Va., April 8 — Many in West Virginia and eastern Kentucky were dismayed when news came that notorious Massey coal baron Don Blankenship would face only a maximum of one year in prison for his role in the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster. Blankenship was not even charged with the murder of the 29 miners, but rather “conspiracy to willfully violate mine health and safety standards.” (more at “Coal Mine Boss found guilty of conspiracy”)Don BlankenshipCritical observers have expressed doubt that he would see any jail time, due to the long history of a lack of punishment for capitalist coal barons who put profit ahead of human well-being. However, Blankenship’s crimes and cavalier attitude toward the lives of workers were so egregious that he was, in fact, sentenced to a full year in prison and forced to pay a $250,000 fine. The federal prosecutor recommended this sentence, which is the maximum possible for this misdemeanor.The day after the verdict, Blankenship’s million-dollar attorneys filed a notice of appeal on his behalf. They say they are confident that the decision will be overturned. Currently, it is not known when he will be required to report to prison.After the verdict, Blankenship told the Charleston Gazette-Mail: “There was no direct evidence I committed a crime. I am not guilty of a crime.” Instead of owning up to his crime and being eternally grateful that he’s getting off easy, Blankenship continues to mock workers and their families.Capitalism: a law for rich, another for poorIt’s a scathing indictment of the capitalist system, and the state that protects it, that a millionaire who killed 29 people was given a mere slap on the wrist while Black and Brown youth are being locked away for decades over minor drug offenses — and when released, cannot get a job due to their record. Blankenship has no such difficulties ahead of him. He has amassed a fortune robbing the working class of the products of their labor. His net worth is rumored to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. In West Virginia, even in the rare instances where the federal government might consider a criminal coal boss liable, the barons can get away with mass murder if they write a big enough check.Outside the courtroom, the people let Blankenship hear their righteous indignation. “That man has no remorse,” said Tommy Davis, who lost his son, nephew and brother in the explosion.“He’s standing up there, and he’s hugging them people. I don’t hug nothing but a damn tombstone. I hold a picture. I don’t get to hold no grandchildren.”“I miss my family. He hugged his, and all he gets is a year,” local media outlet WSAZ reported Davis as saying. “They need to be stricter, more harsh penalties for people like that who puts greed — money — over human life.”Union member and organizer with the Appalachian Workers Alliance, Ethan Young, commented: “I pray that Blankenship’s cellmate is one of the countless miners who broke his body in those mines and became addicted to pain pills while trying to cope with the painful existence he endured for the profit of the Coal Baron.”That Blankenship is able to walk away from this with his pockets only a little lighter is an indictment of the system, proof that the political establishment and their courts can’t deliver justice for West Virginia’s working class. The only way forward is the seizure of state power and the means of production by the working class. We must build a new system — a democratically planned economy where all property is collectively owned by the working class and all labor is directed at fulfilling people’s needs, instead of making profits for a small minority of millionaires and billionaires.For more on the struggle, follow the Appalachian Workers Alliance blog at, on Facebook at and on Twitter @AWAworkers.Stephen Pearson, an organizer with the Appalachian Workers Alliance, contributed to this article.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

It is not known where they are being held and their lawyers and relatives have been unable to get any word of them.The organisation cautioned the authorities about a campaign orchestrated by judicial officials and revolutionary guards in the mosques and conservative press in which all the detained students and journalists are accused of being “mohareb” (persons who fight against God), which is punishable by death.Reporters Without Borders also reiterated its call for the release of all the journalists imprisoned in Iran, which now totals at least 17. The recent arrests have made Iran the biggest prison for journalists in the Middle East.Akrami worked for the reformist daily Nedat Eslahat, which has been closed by the authorities for some time. His wife said she has not seen him since 16 June, when he went missing while outside Tehran university, and she said she was worried about his fate.State prosecutor Saïd Mortazavi has said the recently detained journalists were being held in Evin prisons. But lawyers of the journalists who have gone to the prison have not been able to locate their clients and found no mention of their names in the prison records.Mohsen Sazgara, the editor of the website Alliran and the (closed) reformist daily Jameh, is meanwhile continuing the hunger strike he began on the day of his arrest on 15 June. He is now very weak, and his condition is all the more worrying because he has a heart ailment. His wife, who is also on hunger strike to protest against his imprisonment, was summoned by judicial officials on 25 June and was hospitalised the same day.last_img read more

Councilmember, Mayoral Candidate Gordo Marches With Activists After They Protest at His Home

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News Protesters showed up at the home of City Councilman and mayoral candidate Victor Gordo in response to Saturday’s officer-involved shooting death in Northwest Pasadena.But instead of creating a tense situation by calling police Gordo got up from his dinner table and addressed the activists, then walked with the group to discuss their concerns.“This is a time when we should be seeking unity in our city,” Gordo said. “I was asked by the people to come outside to engage in ideas. I was asked to walk with them and I listened. It is our role as elected leaders to bring our city together. I have done the same thing with others who have a different vantage point, including our police officers. I am doing everything I can as an elected leader to understand varying points of view and bring people together.”Gordo walked with the group for several blocks before returning home.The group met at 4 p.m. at La Pintoresca Park, near the shooting scene, then caravanned to Gordo’s home after Monday’s City Council meeting.Some activists headed to Mayor Terry Tornek’s house for a vigil at 7 p.m. The event at Gordo’s house was listed as a protest. Less than a dozen people showed up at Tornek’s home.On its Instagram page, the group said Gordo is expected to win the mayor’s race and listed Tornek as a roadblock to police oversight.Both Gordo and Tornek have recently supported separate police oversight models considered by the City Council.Gordo supported a model that would lead to an oversight commission and an independent auditor. That model would have required a vote to change the city charter in order to make the auditor independent of the city manager’s control.That measure was denied by the council by a vote of 6-2.Tornek backed a separate model that would also create a commission and an auditor. Under that model, oversight would remain under the control of City Manager Steve Mermell.No vote has been taken on that model yet.

Canadian Navy frigate deploys to Asia-Pacific after RIMPAC

first_img Share this article Authorities Royal Canadian Navy frigate HMCS Vancouver departed Pearl Harbour August 18 and will now conduct operations in the Asia-Pacific after participating in the Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC), the world’s largest international maritime exercise.According to the Canadian Navy, the frigate’s activities will include participating in Exercise Kakadu, a joint, biennial exercise hosted by the Royal Australian Navy, and Westploy 16, a deployment aimed at building ties between the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) and the navies of Asia-Pacific countries.“HMCS Vancouver made us proud during RIMPAC and as it carries on conducting operations in the Pacific, its crew will foster increased relations and inter-operability among nations including Australia, Indonesia, Vietnam and New Zealand,” said Commodore Jeff Zwick, Commander Canadian Fleet Pacific.“Throughout this deployment, it will serve as an excellent ambassador for Canada by showcasing both the professionalism of Royal Canadian Navy personnel as well as demonstrating the enhanced capabilities of our Post-Halifax-Class-Modernization Warships while conducting realistic and essential training for more than 200 sailors,” Zwick added.A total of 20 nations will participate in Exercise Kakadu, which aims to build and strengthen mutual understanding and interoperability through a series of graduated training activities. The exercise will allow HMCS Vancouver, with an embarked CH-124 Sea King air detachment, to test and evolve the warfighting capabilities of the Halifax-class warships after upgrades to equipment that were made as part of the Halifax-Class Modernization/Frigate Life Extension project.Following Exercise Kakadu, HMCS Vancouver will embark on exercises for Westploy 16, which will further allow the warship to engage in a variety of training opportunities with foreign navies as well as visiting several countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Westploy 16 provides a unique opportunity that allows the RCN to foster and sustain cooperative relationships that are critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security on the world’s oceans.

Australian puds for Xmas

first_imgPosh handmade puddings from Australia are vying for space on British Christmas tables this year.Pudding Lane boasts that it does not use any automated processes, production lines, or electric steam ovens to make its Classic Christmas pudding, Date & Toffee Log or Australian Macadamia Nuts and Barossa Valley Brandy Pudding.The company combines ingredients by hand, puts the mixture into lined boiling cloths and boils in gas-fired coppers before they are hung on a line to age and mature. They are then dressed in plain cotton fabric to sell.Pudding Lane uses only locally sourced ingredients to produce its Christmas puddings, made to an inherited prize-winning family recipe, in order to minimise its impact on the environment. The fruit, sugar, eggs, butter, flour, breadcrumbs and spices used all come from the country, with the brandy, matured in American oak, from the Barossa Valley wine region of South Australia.last_img read more
