The Eagle Rock House is the renovation and addition to a 1963 home in east Los Angeles located at the end of a small cul-de-sac. With a steep hillside yard, kidney-bean shaped pool, and views of the San Gabriel mountains, the house embodied the quintessential, non-distinct suburban Los Angeles home.Save this picture!© Naho KubotaThe clients – an art dealer, avid cook, and their two children – purchased the house sight-unseen from a family who had haphazardly expanded and renovated the home over the years, resulting in a series of disconnected interior spaces fitted with a bricolage of materials void of any intention. Save this picture!© Naho KubotaConceptually, we believed there was merit to achieving a meaningful dialog with these problematic existing conditions, ensuring that the design existed as part of the lineage of the house’s history rather than subverting it. Pragmatically, our goal was to spatially reorganize the function of the ground floor with a robust kitchen, add more natural light, and provoke a more thoughtful relationship between interior and exterior spaces. Save this picture!© Naho KubotaSave this picture!Floor plan level 1Save this picture!© Naho KubotaThis exploration started with the central stair; an inconsistent variety of rises, runs, and landings, which we inverted from the most obtrusive element to the most sculptural, celebrating its illogical form an important function connecting all levels of the home. A new skylight at the ground level and window in the upper landing creates shifting natural light throughout the day on the stairs, and a restructuring of the supports and partial removal of adjacent walls create new visual connections between levels.Save this picture!© Naho KubotaThe living room, commercial-style kitchen, and dining space were combined into one large volume adjacent to the pool deck with a small addition and removal of a previous bedroom and en-suite bath. A new sliding door mirrors an existing slider to create symmetry in this space, while a large picture window between new kitchen elements denotes the addition. The existing flat ceilings were vaulted with a ‘structural tree’: a central post supporting various beams that redistribute loads of the new volume and layout. Some structural elements, both existing and new, were left exposed to communicate the extent of the renovation and help define the spaces within.Save this picture!© Naho KubotaA mix of ‘high’ and ‘low’ materials respond to the client’s interests. An Italian stone terrazzo floor gives the spaces a gallery-like feel, while construction-grade plywood offsets this finish by offering warmth to the spaces while being cost-conscious.  Save this picture!© Naho KubotaProject gallerySee allShow lessDiscover a New Generation of Antibacterial ToiletsArticlesThe Hillside House / UPASelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Naho Kubota+ 19Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952434/eagle-rock-house-part-office Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952434/eagle-rock-house-part-office Clipboard Year:  Photographslast_img read more

Colombian autoworker ends hunger strike

first_imgLeft, Jorge Parra of GM hunger strikers in Colombia with Martha Grevatt at Sept. 10 Detroit meeting.WW photo: Abayomi AzikiweDetroit — After 72 heroic days, Jorge Parra, the president of Asotrecol, the Association of Injured Workers and Ex-workers of General Motors Colmotores in Colombia, ended his liquid-only fast on Jan. 31.In a statement announcing the lifting of the hunger strike, Asotrecol said Parra “took this step in anticipation of a close cooperation between Asotrecol and U.S. labor in working for a just resolution with [GM] at the corporate level of the grievances arising from the unjust and illegal firings of autoworkers hurt on the job at GM’s Colombian subsidiary, Colmotores. Asotrecol’s tent occupation across the street from the U.S. Embassy in Bogotá, in its 550th day at the beginning of February, continues, as does the campaign to compel General Motors to agree to redress this injustice.”Asotrecol’s goal has been justice for the hundreds of Colombian GM workers fired after suffering injuries caused by the terrible conditions inside the Bogota plant. The pressure campaign began when 68 injured workers set up an encampment outside the U.S. Embassy in Bogota on Aug. 1, 2011. Showing incredible courage and fortitude, a small group of workers and families has kept the occupation going over 18 months.A year after starting the occupation, these workers went on hunger strike, sewing their lips shut. Later in August, Asotrecol rejected an insulting GM offer of compensation to the workers still in the encampment. The second hunger strike was suspended when it appeared that discussions between GM and the United Auto Workers would lead to a solution.Parra has been in Detroit since Sept. 4 trying to get a meeting with GM corporate executives to present extensive documentation of the working conditions that left workers incapable of working and the corrupt practices that led to their denial of workers’ compensation. Parra’s third hunger strike began Nov. 20 when it was clear there had been no movement on the part of GM toward resolution of the workers’ claims.The international movement in solidarity with Asotrecol — whose primary demand is reintegration into the GM workforce on jobs the workers can perform with their limitations — has engaged in demonstrations, social media protests, solidarity fasts, auto dealer visits, media exposure, fundraising for the encampment families and, most recently, an Occupy Wall Street-style “mic check” inside Detroit’s North American International Auto Show.During his stay in Detroit, Parra has spoken at meetings of unions, churches, housing rights activists, students, peace groups and others, and attended actions supporting Walmart workers, in solidarity with Palestine and Venezuela, to stop foreclosures and other struggles.While there may be new signs that the situation of Asotrecol workers is closer to being resolved, protests will continue until GM agrees to review Parra’s extensive evidence of the injustice perpetrated by GM Colmotores. While GM is celebrating billions of dollars in record profits, Asotrecol’s supporters are crashing the party and exposing the brutal working conditions in one of the corporation’s most profitable plants.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana’s Leadership in Renewable Energy Draws National Attention

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 9, 2014 Previous articlePeople who hate GMOsNext articleSoybean Exports Increase for Fifth Consecutive Week Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE Indiana’s Leadership in Renewable Energy Draws National AttentionDon VillwockA group of national leaders has come to Indiana to see the advances our state has made in renewable energy and the role that agriculture has played in its development. The group toured the Hoosier State on Thursday looking at the progress that has been made in renewable biofuels, solar, and wind energy. Indiana Farm Bureau President Don Villwock said Indiana is a leader in the development new sources of energy, “We have the second largest biodiesel plant in the world at Claypool, IN, and 13 very progressive ethanol plants that have really developed the market in this state.”  Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann spoke to the delegation and said much of this credit for the development of the renewable energy sector in Indiana is agriculture, “We are very proud of agriculture and the leadership role it has played in renewable fuels in our state, and we expect this to continue.”  She added that Indiana also has a wealth of traditional energy sources including a 300 year supply of coal and supply of oil in the Illinois basin.Ellspermann hinted at a new state energy policy that is under development and will beSue Ellspermannrolled out next month.  State Director of Agriculture Ted McKinney said his department has been at the table during the development of this policy and sees agriculture as playing a key role in the development of new sources of renewable energy.General Donald Hoffman,The Hoosier State is also a hotbed of innovation when it comes to new sources of energy, including the wind farm in Benton County, the solar project in Tipton County, and the methane digester at the Fair Oaks Dairy in Jasper County that is turning animal waste into natural gas.   The group toured the Fair Oaks farm along with several other locations in the state. They also got a briefing on new cellulosic research at Purdue University. U.S. Air Force General Donald Hoffman, retired, a member of the delegation, told HAT that Indiana is on the cutting edge of the next generation of renewable energy, “Indiana agriculture has found ways to use the waste from agricultural production to create energy; that is a win/win situation for everyone.”  Hoffman said developing new sources of energy is vital for national security.The tour was sponsored by the 25×25 Initiative, whose goal is to have 25% of our nation’s energy needs come from renewable sources by the year 2025. Currently, the group says 11% of the nation’s energy comes from renewable resources.

RSF displays visual projection marking one-year anniversary of Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination

first_img Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Help by sharing this information NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Receive email alerts In April, an RSF delegation took an unprecedented trip to Riyadh to engage directly with Saudi government officials on the need for urgent press freedom reforms and the release of the 30 journalists and bloggers arbitrarily detained in the country. Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s most oppressive countries for journalists, is ranked 172 out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. The United States ranks 48 after dropping three places in the last year.Watch the full video of RSF’s projection from October 1. RSF_en The projection also points to the dangers journalists now face as a result of the lack of accountability for those involved in Khashoggi’s murder. According to RSF’s data, 49 journalists have been killed around the world in connection with their reporting since October 2018. Washington, D.C. — On October 1, Reporters Without Borders USA partnered with local visual artist Robin Bell to display a large-scale projection on the facades of the Newseum and the Trump Hotel in Washington, DC, marking the one-year anniversary of the state-ordered assassination of Washington Post columnist and Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi.  Organisation News United StatesAmericas June 7, 2021 Find out more News October 2, 2019 RSF displays visual projection marking one-year anniversary of Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination In November 2018, the United States imposed sanctions on 17 Saudis who US Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin said were believed to be involved in Khashoggi’s murder. Saudi Arabia’s response has been to put 11 unnamed suspects on a trial shrouded in secrecy. In a  report outlining the findings from her investigation into Khashoggi’s murder, Agnes Callamard, UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, found sufficient credible evidence of Crown Prince Mohammed’s culpability and urged states to expand sanctions to include him for his role in the killing. center_img to go further Follow the news on United States “President Trump’s indifference toward the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi is not only morally reprehensible, but it has put a target on the backs of journalists around the world,” said Fassihian. “The brazenness of this premeditated murder and the impunity that surrounds it demonstrates that journalists can no longer trust the US government to protect them in the face of peril. This is the ultimate betrayal of American values.”  News Nonetheless, the Trump administration has not taken action against the crown prince. After the Trump administration failed to provide Congress with the determination of responsibility for Khashoggi’s murder required under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, RSF and a coalition of US-based human rights organizations joined forces to pursue other avenues for justice through Congress, which has shown a bipartisan will to hold the Saudi government accountable for its actions.  “The impunity enjoyed by Saudi Arabia one year after the horrific murder of Jamal Khashoggi is almost as shocking as the brutal act itself,” said Dokhi Fassihian, Executive Director of Reporters Without Borders’ North America bureau. “We partnered with projection artist Robin Bell to remind our community that the President has not only allowed for the coverup of this brutal murder, but has even strengthened his alliance with the central actor of this horrific crime: Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.” The projection highlighted the Trump administration’s refusal to hold the Saudi government accountable for ordering the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a Virginia resident, despite determinations by the CIA and a United Nations expert that implicated high-level Saudi officials, including the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in the journalist’s killing on October 2, 2018.

City Buys Caltrans Home

first_img 13 recommendedShareShareTweetSharePin it Make a comment A view of the home bought from Caltrans by the City of Pasadena[Updated] The city has purchased a home from Caltrans that was previously seized to make room for the 710 freeway extension.The three-bedroom home on Waverly Street in District 6 is currently being renovated.The home cost the city $305,000 but would have gone for more than $800,000 if it was sold at market value, according to Councilman Steve Madison.“I think that the lion’s share of the credit goes to our tremendous housing director, Bill Huang, who really is passionate about affordable housing,” Madison said.After the renovations are completed, The rooms will be rented to three women.According to Madison, the tenants will probably move into the house in April.Councilman Steve Madison credited the project to Pasadena Director of Housing Bill Huang, who he said is passionate about affordable housing.Huang received the green light from the City Manager that allowed the duo to negotiate with Caltrans. The state agency was open to the idea because the property was vacant and off the beaten path.According to Huang, it was hard to get information about the house.“It just it took a long time in the beginning,” Huang said. “We couldn’t get into the house, so we had to wait a long time to be able to do that. But finally, when we were able to do that, we were able to come to a good agreement with Caltrans and the transaction went through pretty seamlessly. So it was good. It just took a couple years to get there.”In the early 1960s, Caltrans seized more than 500 properties in Pasadena, South Pasadena and the El Sereno neighborhood of Los Angeles through eminent domain in order to build a surface connector. After that effort died, transit officials attempted to go underground with a two-lane, barrel-shaped 4.5-mile-long tunnel, which also failed.Local politicians, residents and activists have been calling on Caltrans to sell the properties, most of which need renovations, at affordable rates.Caltrans has been renting out homes along the former 710 freeway extension corridor for decades and is now in the process of selling them to the longtime tenants who rented them, including nonprofit organizations.The state agency and the city is also at the beginning of a process that could result in the Caltrans turning over the 50 acre 710 stump between Pasadena and St. Johns avenues.The area housed minority areas before the homes were seized to make way for the freeway extension.The city is attempting to build more affordable housing units to offset skyrocketing housing costs.“It might be that we could acquire those homes and then sell them at market value and then use those monies to provide even more affordable housing,” Madison said. “I think we’ve got to look at these properties, you know, sort of one by one. The city does have staff that’s doing that and is trying to nudge Caltrans along, certainly in terms of the vacant ones to relinquish them as soon as possible.” First Heatwave Expected Next Week Herbeauty7 Things A Man Will Do Only If He Really Loves YouHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyShort On Time? 10-Minute Workouts Are Just What You NeedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Means testing of child benefit too blunt an instrument – O’Dea

first_imgPrint Facebook Previous articleSomething to smile aboutNext articleFive countries to be represented at ‘Beast of Ballyhoura’ admin Email WhatsApp Linkedincenter_img Twitter “It is a myth that only those on low income really ‘need’ the payment,”MEANS testing for child benefit will take the payment from middle income families who are relying on it to maintain a basic quality of life for their children. “Reports that the IMF want the Government to introduce means testing for child benefit and the failure of Government to move quickly to rule it out are worrying,” says Deputy Willie O’Dea, FF spokesperson on Social Protection.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It is a myth that only those on low income really ‘need’ the payment,” he says. “Many average income families that are tied into crippling mortgage repayments need all the help they can get and depriving them of the child benefit is a step too far for these families who have already borne much of the pain in attempts to correct the national finances.The deputy said that cuts to disability payments, children’s allowance, the domiciliary care allowance, the one parent family payment and community employment schemes have all impacted on those most in need of support, while at the same time there was little or no impact on sections of society more able to bear the burden.  “By means testing child benefit the Government would essentially be attacking the lower and middle income families and while there is a case to be made for ending the automatic entitlement to child benefit for those on very high incomes, I would urge Minister Joan Burton to think long and hard before attempting to introduce means testing.“As a senior Labour Party politician, Minister Burton knows well her party made promises not to touch child benefit in any wayy.” NewsLocal NewsMeans testing of child benefit too blunt an instrument – O’DeaBy admin – July 25, 2012 534 Advertisementlast_img read more
