This is ISANA, a multi-layered row house in Musashino City, Tokyo. The owner of the house informed us that it is customary in his home country of India to build some rooms for rent along with the construction of a new house. Following the custom, we planned the owner’s house with the floor area of approximately 70m2 plus rental housing units with floor areas from 25m2 to 30m2.Save this picture!© Masaya YoshimuraIn the beginning, the owner described to us the image of the place as “a little house in the woods” and his words became the key to our design in all aspects. However, we imagined that required spaces for rent would inevitably sum up into a large volume, and therefore set our design strategy to divide and disperse the rental housing units to create the image of “a little house.” The house is designed as a collective body of smaller houses. The large volume is dismantled and gradually blended into the city, standing there as if it is a house for all people, and yet somehow not belonging to anyone at the same time.Save this picture!SectionISANA was built after the occurrence of the Great Tohoku earthquake in 2011. After the completion, new tenants moved into rental housing units and activities of their everyday lives unfold around the courtyard in an atmosphere of a boarding house rather than an apartment building. Some sounds from upper and lower floors are heard because it is comprised of wood construction. But according to the owner, it rather makes him feel alive and secure to hear some sounds and feel neighbors’ presence in the same house. It is also a nice surprise for him to see various people wandering into the courtyard everyday.Save this picture!© Taketo NishikuboTrees in the woods extend their branches fully to shelter, protect and accept us all. Although composed of a simple shape, they accommodate many living creatures in various places. Giving does not mean losing something, but it represents a will to protect and be protected, and to connect with others. This house consists of very small places and features, but its good will extend and be connected to the world.Save this picture!© Masaya YoshimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessColumbus Metropolitan Library / NBBJSelected ProjectsABDM and RAU Win Competition to Design College Campus in KortrijkArchitecture News Sharelast_img read more

Jonathan Brown, Director of The Giving Campaign Wales, said: “It’s staggering to think that Gift Aid is now worth nearly £10 million to charities across Wales, and over 6,000 organisations in the region are already benefiting from the scheme. However, there are too many organisations not yet tapping into this tax break. As an extra source of ongoing, un-restricted funding in an increasingly competitive fundraisingenvironment, this is money that no charity can afford to miss out on.” Advertisementlast_img read more

Southern workers launch alliance to demand human rights

first_imgJuly 14 UE150 union meeting. Photo: UE150On the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, Sept. 3, workers from throughout the South will hold a Southern Workers Assembly. They will gather to speak out about our vision for worker rights as human rights, and begin initial planning toward a rank-and-file-led workers movement in the South to realize those rights.An SWA press release states: “The mainstream U.S. and international media will flood the City of Charlotte to cover the DNC. They will hear politicians hovered over by highly paid lobbyists, who will talk about their visions for the American economy and a democratic society, but none will speak about the issues and denial of rights for workers throughout the South.“The struggle of Charlotte city workers will be a core struggle represented at the assembly. Sanitation workers, water and sewer workers, bus drivers and many others that work for the city have been forced to work longer routes as the city has grown rapidly over the last 10 to 20 years, while the city work force has not grown at nearly the same rate. The Charlotte city workers chapter of UE150, the N.C. Public Service Workers Union, will be starting weekly pickets at City Hall on Monday, Aug. 6, to draw attention to their demands for a Municipal Workers Bill of Rights, which includes a payroll dues deduction. Even with a 9-2 Democratic Party majority, the dues deduction has continually been denied by the Charlotte City Council.Angaza Laughinghouse, president of statewide UE local 150, said: “In an economy that demands that the majority of the people work in order to provide the basic necessities for themselves and families, worker rights are human rights. Yet, despite a ruling by the International Labor Organization, an agency of the United Nations, that the U.S. and North Carolina are out of compliance with international laws and conventions, neither the Bush nor Obama administrations have taken action to bring the U.S. and North Carolina into compliance. The U.S. is obligated, by treaty, to enforce this international law.”The SWA will be held on Sept. 3 at Wedgewood Baptist Church in Charlotte, starting at 1 p.m. It will include workers speaking from the public and private sectors, and from sectors excluded from protections under the National Labor Relations Act or state laws. The SWA will generate some initial planning for a meeting to form a Southern Labor Alliance to unite local unions, worker organizations, worker centers and supporters in launching a campaign to organize a labor movement.“Since farmworkers are excluded from U.S. labor laws, we will be present at the SWA to build relationships and raise awareness about the abhorrent conditions in which most tobacco farmworkers live and work, as we continue to pressure Reynolds American and other tobacco giants to guarantee labor rights for the Southern workers in their supply chain,” stated Justin Flores, organizer with the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, AFL-CIO.The enslavement of African peoples set the basic philosophy and standard for the relationship between employer and workers in the South. In a nutshell, this meant that Southern workers had no rights that the employer was bound to respect.From the 1970s through the 2000s, the legacy of denying worker rights throughout the South has continued — from brutal corporate anti-union campaigns like those involving J.P. Stevens in North Carolina; the Charleston ILA in South Carolina; and Smithfield Foods in North Carolina, all of which included the beating and jailing of pro-union workers. Twenty-five industrial workers, who had no union, were killed at the Imperial Foods Company in Hamlet, N.C. The SWA is the continuation of a movement to challenge and end this anti-worker legacy.To learn more and see a list of endorsers, visit or contact Saladin Muhammad at 252-314-2363 or [email protected]Share thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Culver’s ‘Thank You Farmers’ Project Donations Hit $3 Million for FFA

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Culver’s ‘Thank You Farmers’ Project Donations Hit $3 Million for FFA Since creating the Thank You Farmers Project in 2013, Culver’s has raised $3 million to support agricultural education.The Thank You Farmers Project is about more than showing appreciation for the hard work of today’s farmers: It’s about ensuring we have enough food to serve our growing population by supporting agricultural education efforts that encourage smart farming. One way that Culver’s does this is by supporting FFA.“Today’s FFA members are tomorrow’s ag leaders,” says Alison Wedig, Culver’s marketing specialist and former Wisconsin FFA president. “Many of these students will go on to dedicate their careers to ensuring a sustainable future food supply, so we want to support them and give them a forum to share their voices and passions.”One of the many ways that Culver’s supports FFA is through the annual FFA Essay Contest – which just launched on Feb. 22, 2021, for its seventh year.Like past years, three winners will be chosen to receive funds for their FFA chapters in the totals of $7,500, $5,000, and $2,500. Because the pandemic has made it very difficult for FFA chapters to host their own fundraisers, the prize money will help the winning chapters pursue educational projects and initiatives that otherwise may have gone unfunded.As always, the contest is a chance for students to demonstrate their passion for agricultural education. New this year, students will also be able to submit videos for the contest. This entry method was introduced to recognize the public speaking and presentation skills students develop in FFA and allow them to showcase those abilities.This year’s prompt is:• What lessons has the agriculture industry learned from the COVID-19 pandemic? How can we use these learnings to improve the industry to ensure a sustainable future?Both written essays (1,000 words or less) and videos (5 minutes or less) will be accepted at until the deadline of April 19, 2021, at 5 p.m. CT.Learn more about how Culver’s supports FFA chapters through Thank You Farmers Project fundraising.Source: Culver’s news release By Hoosier Ag Today – Feb 26, 2021 SHARE SHARE Previous articleThe Hoosier Ag Today Podcast for February 26thNext articleHoosier Ag This Week Podcast for February 27th, 2021 Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Culver’s ‘Thank You Farmers’ Project Donations Hit $3 Million for FFAlast_img read more

Mediaset multata tre volte dall‚ inizio della campagna elettorale

first_img RSF_en April 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Mediaset multata tre volte dall‚ inizio della campagna elettorale November 23, 2020 Find out more RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive A pochi giorni dalle elezioni politiche, la polemica sull‚eccessiva mediatizzazione del Presidente del Consiglio, Silvio Berlusconi, si è riaccesa. Il gruppo Mediaset di proprietà del premier ha ricevuto una nuova multa, il 3 aprile 2006, per non aver applicato correttamente la «Par Condicio».«Il Capo del governo è stato richiamato all‚ordine a più riprese dalla Authority delle Telecomunicazioni per violazione delle norme sulla par Condicio varate dall’organismo di garanzia per la campagna elettorale. Il conflitto di interessi di cui si accusa il Capo del governo è stato ufficialmente sottolineato e marginato. Ce ne rallegriamo», ha dichiarato Reporters sans frontières.Il 9 febbraio, Mediaset era già stata punita dalla Authority e costretta a pagare 150 000 euro di multa per non aver rispettato l‚equilibrio nella distribuzione dei tempi di antenna tra le diverse forze politiche in campo.Il 22 marzo, due canali di Mediaset, sono stati costretti a pagare rispettivamente 200 000 e 100 000 euro di multa, per aver nuovamente violato la par Condicio.Il 3 aprile, il canale Rete4 ha ricevuto un‚altra sanzione, di 250 000 euro questa volta. L‚Authority ha accusato il direttore e presentatore del telegiornale della rete, Emilio Fede, di avere apertamente sostenuto Silvio Berlusconi durante il suo tg e di non aver riequilibrato l‚informazione in favore dei candidati del centro-sinistra tra il 22 e il 28 marzo, come gli era stato chiesto dopo un primo richiamo ufficiale.Il 5 aprile, Silvio Berlusconi è stato costretto a rinunciare a partecipare a una trasmissione serale che sarebbe dovuta andare in onda su Canale5. L‚annuncio di questa ennesima apparizione in televisione del Premier ha suscitato accese polemiche: ancora una volta Berlusconi avrebbe violato le regole imposte dalla Authority per il periodo pre-elettorale. Il capo del governo sarebbe stato l‚unico invitato presente. Romano Prodi ha infatti rinunciato a partecipare alla trasmissione. Il duello televisivo tra Silvio Berlusconi e Romano Prodi, andato in onda il 3 aprile su Rai 1, dovrebbe essere l‚ultima apparizione tv dei due candidati.

Officials prevent indigenous radio station from reopening

News May 8, 2020 Find out more GuatemalaAmericas Organisation RSF_en January 7, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information to go further Follow the news on Guatemala Receive email alerts August 21, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the continuing persecution of community radio stations in Guatemala, where the mayor of Santa Eulalia, in the western department of Huehuetenango, forcibly prevented members of the indigenous Mayan community from reopening their station last week.Indigenous representatives had wanted to organize a ceremony on 20 March to formally reopen Radio Snuq Jolom Konob, closed by the mayor two months ago, but the mayor and his supporters, some of them armed, prevented the ceremony from going ahead.Prensa Comunitaria reporter Lucía Ixchíu said they insulted, threatened and roughed up community representatives and journalists.“We are disturbed by this use of violence against Radio Snuq Jolom Konob by the local authorities and their supporters in Santa Eulalia,” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“This was unfortunately typical of the hostility that the Guatemalan authorities show towards the media, especially community radio stations. Those suspected of being responsible for this act of violence must be brought to justice in order to end impunity.”Among the recent stories covered by Radio Snuq Jolom Konob was local opposition to the company Hidro Santa Cruz’s construction of a hydro-electric dam in an area where members of several Mayan indigenous groups – Akateko, Chuj, Popti’ and Q’anjob’al – are in the majority.Its coverage of the way the indigenous population is defending its ancestral lands upset the local authorities, who support the hydroelectric project.The news coverage provided by community radio stations is particularly important in Guatemala, especially in rural and indigenous areas, where their reporting is accessible to the population and focused on local issues.However, Guatemala’s media legislation favours the established media at the expense of community radio stations, especially since the adoption of a new telecommunications law in 2012, which endorsed the concentration of media ownership in few hands.It allowed media outlets with previously allocated broadcast frequencies to renew them almost automatically for another 20 years but failed to address the irregular situation of community radio stations, which find it almost impossible to obtain legal frequencies.Regarded as “pirates” by the authorities and telecommunication networks, community radio stations are very vulnerable and are permanently exposed to the possibility of closure or seizure of their equipment.Support the reopening of Santa Eulalia’s community radio station by signing this petition. Guatemala is ranked 129th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Guatemala. Don’t put the Guatemalan press in quarantine!

Required fields are marked * The City Council passed eight items on the Consent Calendar on Monday, including a $118,000 contract with Housing Rights Center to aid households at risk of falling into homelessness after the city’s rent moratorium expires.“The [Housing] Department believes it is of the utmost importance that adequate resources are in place to serve and support residents at risk of falling into homelessness, especially after eviction moratoria are lifted and anticipated waves of evictions follow suit,” according to a city staff report.“Extensive research indicates that tenants with legal representation are much more likely to avoid an eviction judgment compared to unrepresented tenants. Attorneys may be able to keep eviction filings off tenants’ records, arrange for alternative housing, negotiate reasonable amounts of time for tenants to move out, reduce or eliminate money owed to the landlord, or help tenants apply for rental assistance. The city will allocate the remaining $118,098 of CESH funding to the Housing Rights Center in order to fund an additional legal support position specifically for Pasadena residents,” according to the report.The city’s rent moratorium is scheduled to end six months after the pandemic emergency ends.Other items included:• A $194,413 purchase order with SSP Innovations for the upgrade of a mobile geographical information system and a software license agreement with the Pasadena Water and Power Department.• A $400,000 service contract with ATI Restoration for asbestos, lead and mold abatement services at various and water facilities. The contract includes the option of two one-year extension periods not-to-exceed $80,000 each period, subject to the approval of the city manager. If both options are exercised, the total contract amount would be $560,000.• The city manager can enter into a $269,570 contract with ACCO Engineered Systems for the labor and materials to replace the GT-3 Chiller Compressor #2. The contract also includes a base contract amount of $245,070 and a 10% contingency of $24,500 to provide for any unforeseen change orders.• A $2 million contract with Paveco Construction Inc. to furnish labor and materials for utility and miscellaneous street repairs. The contract has an option for two additional one-year terms at $2 million per year subject to the approval of the city Manager. If the two additional one-year terms are exercised, the total contract amount will be $6 million.• A contract with Linkedin learning for online employee training services not-to-exceed $79,443.• An item from last week’s Municipal Services Committee was also contained in the consent calendar. Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) will only pay for the energy actually received, at the rate of $69 per megawatt hour from COSO Power Holdings. During the first five years, PWP will not be taking any energy and hence will not be liable for any payments for the first five years.
