In 2013 the first Onix climbing house was created in the small town of Almelo (the Netherlands). A house, situated at the edge of a new development area in a town like Almelo and designwise unbothered by any municipal inspectorate interference, not only presents the opportunity to live directly adjacent to its garden: it also makes the idea of literally living at a ‘higher’ level seem quite appealing, which indeed was the case for its future owners Tjeerd Willem and Erna.Save this picture!SectionFollowing this concept, Onix has managed to develop a dwelling for them, which indeed offers multi-level living possibilities as the house keeps on spiralling upward through a large number of different floor levels, till it finally ends in a roof terrace.Save this picture!© Peter van der KnoopEach floor level differs a mere 75 cm from the previous one, giving the building an atmosphere of continuous space. In addition, as these differences in height are quite minor, the use of balustrades for safety could luckily be avoided. For now the house incorporates 10 floor levels, allowing the possibility to build even higher in the future though.Save this picture!© Peter van der KnoopThe house is completely made of wood. The exterior consists of vertical planks, the interior and walls of multiplex. Tjeerd Willem has chosen to finish the interior walls himself, as well as build a concrete countertop for the kitchen. The interior is actually furnished in one piece: a continuous and complex totality of connected stairs, floors, walls, ceilings and wardrobes.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe design is reminiscent of Adolf Loos’ ‘Raumplan’. The climbing house with its surface area of 7 x 9m is extended to a gross floor area of 10 x 10m, thus integrating the structure in the space and allowing it to become ornament, structure, furniture as well as stairs, all at the same time.Project gallerySee allShow less20 Scholarships the AA BILBAO Visiting School: COMPUTING TOPOS III 2014 / Bilbao, SpainEventConference: Urban Routines 2013/14Event Share CopyAbout this officeOnixOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlmeloHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on July 01, 2014Cite: “Stair House / Onix” 01 Jul 2014.

Boston bus drivers stand ground against Veolia

first_imgUnion members and supporters celebrate after a jury aquits Kirschbaum of Veolia’s union-busting charges in Dorchester, Mass., March 5.WW photo: Liz GreenThe unique approach of Boston School Bus Drivers, Steelworkers Local 8751, to unionism and solidarity with the oppressed offers a much needed new blueprint for building power within the community. During my travels there, it was quite inspiring to see a local union work hand in hand with neighborhood youth against police brutality. It was quite encouraging to see the rank and file of the Boston school bus drivers work with parents and community members to organize against school closings and badly timed budget cuts to public education.Steve Kirschbaum with journalist Lamont Lilly, right.Photo: Ken YarboroughUSW Local 8751 was founded in 1978 through efforts of the bus driver organizers to desegregate the Boston public schools. It was four years prior, in 1974, that busloads of defenseless children were attacked by racist vigilantes and the Ku Klux Klan in Boston’s Roxbury district. The school bus drivers who worked these desegregation routes were not only physically attacked in the streets; they were harassed on the job by school administrators and parent-teacher organizations. The need for organized camaraderie was a matter of survival.Veolia’s current attack on the Boston School Bus Drivers Union was directed in particular at four members of Local 8751: Recording Secretary and Charleston Chief Steward Andre François; Vice President Steve Gillis; Former President Garry Murchison; and Grievance Chair and union founder Stevan Kirschbaum. In spite of phony felony charges brought against Kirschbaum by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on behalf of Veolia in July of 2014, union members stuck together and remained diligent — workers remained inspired and dedicated to one common goal. Just recently, in early March, a jury returned a not-guilty verdict after 10 minutes of deliberation.Local 8751The degree of unity of Local 8751 is an inspiration to the working class all over the U.S. … actually all over the world. Union organizers and rank-and-file members have stood tall against a corporate parasite for 18 months now. The four leaders who were fired (Francois, Gillis, Kirshbaum and Murchison) have since exhausted their employment benefits and have had to depend on allies and fellow union members. In spite of such obstacles, solidarity and team morale remain strong.Even while fired, the four leaders have continued to organize and build resistance. Weekly rallies and mass meetings have continued to convene at nearby bus yards, union halls and in the community. Solidarity and working-class support have poured in from all over the country. Local organizers have continued to coordinate national call-in days to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. During the trial of Kirschbaum, every court hearing was completely packed with community supporters through “people’s mobilizations.”Their goal is not only to get their four leaders reinstated, but to build a local movement against austerity measures, political repression, racism and resegregation. Not only is Local 8751 fighting to protect local union rights, they’re fighting to ensure that “Black lives matter” and that children of all races, social strata and ethnic backgrounds have equal access to a good education in Boston. Any union that’s fighting side by side with oppressed communities against poor conditions and gentrification is my kind of union. They also have a strong foundation in the anti-war and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer movements. They have openly advocated for an end to the Israeli occupation of historic Palestine for years and constructed one of the first union contracts to protect LGBTQ workers from on-the-job harassment and employment discrimination.Resistance to Veolia’s sordid recordMultinational corporate giant Veolia Inc. is a French-based global conglomerate founded in 1853 under the orders of Napoleon III. Veolia’s first order of privatization was the control and supply of water throughout France. Unfortunately, Veolia has since then privatized water in Africa, India and Latin America. Currently, Veolia has accrued more profit from the distribution and resale of water than any other corporation in the world.Over the years, its trail of corporate greed and worker exploitation has only continued to expand and grow more ruthless. Today, Veolia’s vast business ventures include energy and transportation, waste management and environmental maintenance, television, film and mass media.According to a recent report by local organizers, in the sector of transportation “Veolia has waged anti-union campaigns against bus drivers from San Francisco, Phoenix, Baltimore and Denver. Veolia assumed management of the Boston public school buses in July of 2013. Since then, Veolia has refused to honor the terms of union contracts, completely ignoring pre-established grievance and arbitration procedures. Since the arrival of Veolia in Boston, bus drivers’ wages, benefits and working conditions have only worsened. Veolia’s corporate strategy of divide and conquer includes union busting and worker intimidation.” (bostonschoolbus5.org)Boston’s public school bus drivers aren’t just fighting for a better contract and higher wages. They’re fighting for their livelihood and quality of life. They’re fighting for the collective well-being of the entire community. The struggle to reinstate the four leaders who were fired is a direct reflection of the struggle to preserve the entire working class. As they have stood tall, so should we.Lilly is a leader of the Durham, N.C., branch of Workers World Party. He did support work for Local 8751 in Boston the last week in March.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Publication of Mohamed picture triggers riots, journalist’s arrest

first_img January 16, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Publication of Mohamed picture triggers riots, journalist’s arrest News News Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s arrest of Jitendra Prasad Das, a subeditor with the regional Oriya-language daily Samaj in Cuttack, in the eastern state of Odisha, in connection with the publication of a picture of the Prophet Mohammed on 14 January.The media freedom organization also calls for investigations into attacks on the newspaper’s offices in Cuttack and other cities in Odisha so that those responsible can be brought to justice.“We urge the authorities to release Jitendra Prasad Das without delay,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They must not bow to pressure from the street. This journalist committed no crime and arresting him just to defuse the anger of fundamentalists is not justifiable.“We regret that Samaj did not protect this young journalist by taking responsibility for publishing the picture. This attitude is indicative of the pressure under which it was placed and the self-censorship it feels forced to adopt.”Reporters Without Borders points out that:- The only curbs on freedom of information tolerated under article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights are those that protect the rights or reputations of others, national security, public order, or public health or morals. The criteria for applying any such restrictions on freedom of expression and information must be extremely precise.- Restriction of freedom of expression and information under criminal law is only permitted in cases of spoken or written words manifestly inciting hatred, violence or discrimination against a community or individual, or violating a person’s privacy.- And finally, a strict distinction must be made between offences against beliefs, ideas and dogma, on the one hand, and offences against persons, on the other. Only the second are admissible in law.The offending picture of the Prophet accompanied a short text in a special issue that Samaj published on 14 January, which Muslims celebrate as his birthday. News As Islam forbids any pictorial representation of Mohamed, members of the Muslim community demonstrated outside the newspaper’s offices in Cuttack, Balasore, Rourkela and Kendrapada, demanding a public apology. Although editor Satya Ray published an apology in the newspaper, protesters ransacked its Balasore office and torched its Rourkela office.As the person supposedly responsible for the inclusion of the picture, Das was arrested at the newspaper’s headquarters in Cuttack yesterday on a charge of “hurting religious sentiments.”When the entire editorial staff told the police that they wanted to be arrested, the police said they were arresting Das just to defuse street tension. He was nonetheless taken before a judge.Calling for Das’ release, National Union of Journalists secretary general Prasanna Mohanty criticized the Samaj management for giving Das’ name to the police instead of taking collective responsibility.Last month, Reporters Without Borders published a report on blasphemy entitled “Information sacrificed on altar of religion.” It examines the dangers to freedom of information from censorship in the name of religion and the belief that religion and “traditional values” should be untouchable. Working as journalist is tough in India, which is ranked 140th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and which is one of the world’s deadliest countries for media personnel.

How to Order the Perfect Amount of Food for Your Next Event

first_img2. Beverages – Plan on about 3 beverages per person, with coffee drinkers consuming on average one cup every 1.3 hours. First, consider the length of the event. For example, an evening cocktail party requires considerably less food than an entire afternoon or all-day event. The longer guests remain, the more they’ll consume. When estimating, always round up to be on the safe side. Some will eat more, others less. It will all balance out in the end. Try to anticipate which foods/drinks are most popular and will disappear quickly. Order more of these selections. 3. Breakfast – People usually drink 2 beverages on average – either juice, coffee, tea, etc. Fruit makes an excellent breakfast dessert. Choose from Pancakes, Egg Sandwich, Egg, Ham & Cheese, Hash Browns.

The Court was adjudicating upon a writ petition filed by Dr. Sarita Kishor Parikh and Glenn Paul Fernandez. During the Video Conference, the Additional Public Prosecutor (APP), JP Yagnik, had submitted before the Bench that the record of investigation and enquiry needed to be brought before the Court. He insisted that the same may be presented over a physical hearing as the records run into a number of pages and since the investigation is under way, they should not be sent by email. He also pointed out that the petitioners had, without his knowledge or consent, requested for a virtual hearing of the matters. It was at this juncture that the Petitioner No. 2, Glenn Paul Fernandez, rudely interrupted the proceedings and started using vulgar and abusive language while addressing the Court. He stated that the Bombay High Court had “destroyed them” and that the two petitioners were “not ready to come to the Court for physical hearing.” Moreover, he remarked that if the matter was not heard by the Court through video conferencing, he would “espouse his cause through media”. The Court was requested by the Public Prosecutor to imitate contempt proceedings against Fernandez however, the bench chose to show “show judicial grace and magnanimity” and refrained from issuing the notice. Nevertheless, the Judges observed that it would be “impossible” to proceed with the hearing virtually, for two reasons: “Firstly, in case petitioner No.2 is allowed to argue, he would continue his arguments in vulgar and abusive language and secondly, as rightly submitted by the learned APP, the enquiry / investigation papers which, according to him, are running into a number of pages and since the investigation is in progress, it would not be desirable to send the same by e-mail.” The Court has thus listed this matter for a physical hearing on 29th January, 2021.

Greek gifts bear fruit but honesty withers on vine

first_imgThe gifted footballers of Greece may have demonstrated the power of teamworkand a commitment to their country by becoming European football champions, butthe Greek nation comes bottom of the league for tax honesty. A report by theEuropean Commission shows that more than 20 per cent of work-by-value goesundeclared in Greece. Undeclared work in an Enlarged EU shows the UK is farmore honest, with only 2 per cent of its gross domestic product concealed fromthe tax authorities, second only to Austria (1.5 per cent). Other high-mindedcountries were The Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium and (Greek) Cyprus. The‘informal economy’ – ie, tax dodging – was also a problem in Hungary andLatvia. http://europa.eu.int/comm/employment_social/employment_analysis/work/undecl_work_final_en.pdf Comments are closed.

Influence of anisotropy on velocity and age distribution at Scharffenbergbotnen blue ice area

first_imgWe use a full-Stokes thermo-mechanically coupled ice-flow model to study the dynamics of the glacier inside Scharffenbergbotnen valley, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. The domain encompasses a high accumulation rate region and, downstream a sublimation-dominated bare ice ablation area. The ablation ice area is notable for having old ice at its surface since the vertical velocity is upwards, and horizontal velocities are almost stagnant there. We compare the model simulation with field observations of velocities and the age distribution of the surface ice. A satisfactory match with simulations using an isotropic flow law was not found because of too high horizontal velocities and too slow vertical ones. However, the existence of a pronounced ice fabric may explain the present day surface velocity distribution in the inner Scharffenbergbotnen blue ice area. Near absence of data on the temporal evolution of Scharffenbergbotnen since the Late Glacial Maximum necessitates exploration of the impact of anisotropy using prescribed ice fabrics: isotropic, single maximum, and linear variation with depth, in both two-dimensional and three dimensional flow models. The realistic velocity field simulated with a non-collinear orthotropic flow law, however produced surface ages in significant disagreement with the few reliable age measurements and suggests that the age field is not in a steady state and that the present distribution is a result of a flow reorganization at about 15 000 yr BP. In order to fully understand the surface age distribution a transient simulation starting from the Late Glacial Maximum including the correct initial conditions for geometry, age, fabric and temperature distribution would be needed. It is the first time that the importance of anisotropy has been demonstrated in the ice dynamics of a blue ice area. This is useful to understand ice flow in order to better interpret archives of ancient ice for paleoclimate research.last_img read more
