The clients already had a built structure; the challenge for the studio was to make a large reform to bring comfort and privacy in a dense urban context. The division of the space we proposed is quite simple: garage, service area and home theater in the basement, kitchen, dining and living room on the ground floor, bedrooms on the first floor. Even though we changed part of the structure, most of the openings were maintained, which brought up the idea of covering the whole surface of the house to bring unity.Save this picture!© FG+SG – Fernando Guerra, Sergio GuerraThe client is a stylist and stimulated us with the task of coming up with different possibilities to “dress” the house, we chose perforated metal panels, with a pattern based in the photograph of a leaf. In this way the proximity of the neighbors became less oppressive and the spaces create an interesting relation with the variations of the sun. Projects On one hand the panels filter the light and the regards; on the other we created a patio to bring light to the basement and a slit above the stairs to illuminate the vertical garden. The master bedroom has a generous opening towards the backyard, where the landscape creates a small oasis within the city. A water basin intensifies the sensation of openness in the garden.

In the living room large glass windows slide to integrate the space with the garden.

Reporters Without Borders condemns attacks on pro-government media

first_img Receive email alerts Organisation Reporters Without Borders has strongly condemned attacks against the pro-government radio stations, Radio Solidarité and Pyramide.”It is particularly worrying that the press which is generally the target of pro-government supporters should now be attacked by members of the opposition, said Robert Ménard, secretary general of the international press freedom organisation.”Even if these acts of violence are far less common that those attributed to pro-government agents, it does not make them any the less disgraceful”. “The use of violence against the media, whoever carries it out, is unjustifiable and unacceptable,” he said.Demonstrators calling for the resignation of President Aristide attacked a team from Radio Solidarité on 17 December, because of its pro-government editorial line. One of those attacked, Alexis Eddy Jackson, was beaten and his tape recorder was destroyed. Demonstrators also stoned one of the radio station’s vehicles.Pro-opposition demonstrators marching near the station on 11 December had previously threatened to destroy it. The station boss, Venel Remarais, said the station management took the decision to suspend broadcasts for six hours on 13 December because of new threats.Elsewhere, opponents of President Aristide ransacked the offices of the commercial station Pyramide, at Saint-Marc, north of Port-au-Prince, on 11 November. Marc Antoine Aldorphe, head of radio Tête à tête, a rival station in Saint-Marc, was reportedly among the attackers.Pyramide is believed to be suspected by its rival of denouncing it to the national telecommunications council (the public body that oversees the allocation and use of radio frequencies). The attack came just a few hours after the town’s legal authorities had seized the transmitter and two microphones from Tête à tête and sealed the station’s offices, on the grounds that it was broadcasting without permission. In his broadcasts, the radio’s boss Marc Antoine Aldorphe, criticised those close to the government. He also criticised Pyramide for its pro-government stance.In a statement on 18 December, Reporters Without Borders condemned the violence and threats against some 15 journalists working for eight media critical of the government. The statement also denounced calls to violence issued by deputies of the ruling Fanmi Lavalas party against members of the opposition and the press.

That early church was built quite literally on faith and charity from remainder brick and an operating budget that turned just about all of its revenue into active ministry. Through 65 years of outreach, LCPC grew to 2,000 active attendees doing ministry throughout Southern California and in 40 countries around the world. In 2010 the church completed a campus expansion which doubled its physical base for ministry and kept its historical sanctuary as the heart of the new grounds.La Cañada Presbyterian Church, 626 Foothill Boulevard, La Cañada, (818) 790-6708 or visit www.lacanadapc.org .last_img read more

PBAF meeting needs in Odessa

Home Local News PBAF meeting needs in Odessa More Information WhatsApp 1 of 9 Pinterest By admin – March 15, 2018 Twitter “These aren’t people that you think are relying on welfare,” he said. “Most of these people are looking for a job, they’re looking for employment, they’re looking for a way to give back to the community. They just need a little bit of temporary assisted living.”Shelter Manager Chris Cooper said he was humbled and gratified by the donations given by PBAF.“It’s easy to feel that people don’t recognize what we’re doing and this points out that we’re a value to the community,” Cooper said.He said things have only picked up in the last year and a half at the shelter. Their shelter is at capacity most of the time, housing about 30 people a night, and serving about 100 meals a night, every night.“We are the only facility in Odessa that people can come and have a hot meal and a bed and a hot shower and help in finding jobs,” Gloria Apolinario, chair of the Salvation Army’s Advisory Board, said.Part of the rise in the number of people is due to the recent oil boom and the amount of people coming to look for work from out of town.“They don’t know what a motel or a house costs, so they get here and are overwhelmed,” Cooper said.Cooper said that the shelter is seeing mostly single people right now at the shelters and the occasional family. He said what they need right now are more employees, as well as donations for hygienic products, washrags and twin bedding sets.There is no target date for when the renovations will begin, as they still need to meet their projected goal of raising $500,000. Cooper said the main renovations that need to be done include updating the bathrooms at the shelter, updating the flooring, and doing some remodeling to create more space for beds at the shelter.Bedell said that, while the economy has continued to strengthen as the price of oil increases, the needs of people struggling have not decreased, but are actually increasing.“As the need grows, we hope the community will step up as well,” Bedell said.Those who wish to donate to the Salvation Army can call their office at 432-332-0738 or mail a donation to P.O.

The Permian Basin Area Foundation presented two $50,000 checks to the Salvation Army Wednesday morning to go toward the planned renovations to their shelter, which is growing in need as Odessa faces another oil uptick.PBAF had awarded the Salvation Army an initial grant of $50,000 last year, and challenged Salvation Army to raise an additional $50,000 themselves, which they did. Because of this, PBAF matched the money they raised by presenting them with an additional $50,000 grant.“With the Salvation Army, our community is a much, much more productive and safe and wonderful place to live,” PBAF COO Aaron Bedell said. “So, when we heard about the need that the army had for the building and for the facilities, which are a long time coming, we couldn’t help but do the right thing and come out and support them in a big way.”Bedell described the Salvation Army as an essential part of the community due to its impact in helping people get back on their feet and helping them find jobs.

With so many students burdened by crippling levels of student debt, housing affordability is definitely on the minds of recent grads, but could that college town they’re used to be a reasonable and affordable long-term home?Realtor.com set out to determine “The Best Affordable College Towns for Recent Grads—and Everyone Else.” Realtor.com’s data team examined the 700 largest markets in the U.S., focusing specifically on those that were home to at least one four-year university populated by at least 10,000 undergraduates. Realtor.com then considered factors such as “percentage of college students, unemployment rates, home appreciation, and median income.” What did they find? Among other things, Iowa is home to not one, but two of the most affordable college towns in the U.S.Ames, Iowa, comes in at number one on the list, according to Realtor.com’s report. Home to nearly 35,000 college students, Ames features a median home list price of $265,200 and a median household income of $56,800. The city’s jobless rate is also low at only 1.7 percent.Iowa is also home to the tenth most-affordable city on the list: Iowa City, Iowa. With nearly 30,000 students living within its borders, Iowa City features a median home list price of $290,000 and a median household income of $61,400.The rest of Realtor.com’s Top 10 are scattered around the country, with State College, Pennsylvania, coming in at number two. With a name that’s about as collegiate as you can get, State College has attracted a population of nearly 50,000 college students. The city’s median home list price sits at $257,600, with a median household income of $61,100.From there, the rest of the top 10 consists of Lawrence, Kansas; Blacksburg, Virginia; Ithaca, New York; Ann Arbor, Michigan; Champaign, Illinois; Lafayette, Indiana; Columbia, Missouri; and the aforementioned Iowa City.The highest median home list price from the top 10 is Ann Arbor’s $334,100; the lowest is Champaign’s $158,100.To read the rest of the details about Realtor.com’s 10 most affordable college towns, click here.

Women take only 5 per cent of board seats in FTSE 100

first_imgWomen take only 5 per cent of board seats in FTSE 100On 14 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. MFI’s deputy chairwoman Denise Kingsmill urged blue-chip companies to promote more women HR managers on to boards of directors, at the launch of the first FTSE Female Index last week.The index, a joint initiative from Harriet Harman MP, the Industrial Society and the Fawcett Society, shows that only 5 per cent of the directors of FTSE 100 companies are women.Pearson topped the league table with two women, Gillian Lewis and Marjorie Scardino, on an eight-strong board. Smithkline Beecham came second with two, Baroness Hooper and Dr Lucy Shapiro, out of 11.Standard Chartered was at the bottom of the list with no women out of a 17-strong board. A total of 49 per cent of the FTSE 100 have all-male boards.While HR is a female-dominated profession, few make it to the board. Lady Elspeth Howe, chairwoman of the Hansard Society, said directors should be recruited from a broader spectrum.Kingsmill said the business case for increased diversity was that board issues in modern companies went beyond traditional business issues such as tight financial control, now encompassing risk management, the environment and recruitment policies.”We need people with a variety of experience and skills, including women. They are the customers and employees of those companies,” said Kingsmill. “HR is always important and recruitment, training and retention of staff is a vital board issue.”The index is based on the PricewaterhouseCoopers Corporate Register for September.Harman said, “The task now is to expose the extent of the problem, to work for change, to set a target that within three years there should be no all-male boards in the FTSE top 100.By Lisa Bratbylast_img read more
