From the street, little is seen beyond the high walls, due to its location in the lower levels. Beyond the gate, it is a long way to the house, outlined by the topography. This scenario was the first conditioning.Save this picture!Floor Plan 01The second would be the desire to hide in this environment (and not mimic). This evidence of architecture in relation to the landscape was justified by the references that the residents brought to the beginning of the process of materials, colors and patterns.

Low-wage and oppressed workers in the struggle

first_imgMond JonesThis presentation was given on Nov. 18 at the 2017 Workers World Party national conference in Newark, N.J.We all know what a worker is, right? When most people hear the word “worker,” they imagine probably a scruffy-looking white dude in denim overalls with a wrench in his back pocket or some shit like that. Sure, lots of workers look like that. However, that is not an accurate representation of the working class. In fact, the majority of workers don’t fit that description at all.What’s a worker? A worker, in the Marxist sense, is someone who sells their labor power for a wage, and does not own the means of production.That’s most of us in this room.But when we talk about workers, and the “working class,” we aren’t just talking about people with union jobs.Often times, a large portion of the working class goes unrecognized.Who’s a worker?We believe that the revolution will be led by the most oppressed elements of society, because they have the least to lose and the most to gain.The antagonisms are much more severe for the lower strata of the working class: Black and migrant workers, queer workers, disabled workers, sex workers, etc., and therefore these elements of the working class have the most revolutionary potential, historically.When Brother Bobby and Brother Huey were organizing and recruiting for the Black Panther Party, one of the most advanced Black liberation movements in the U.S. to this very day, where did they go?They didn’t sweep the university halls for philosophers. They weren’t looking around in coffee shops or in the suburbs for revolutionaries. They didn’t join leftist book discussion groups and form petty bourgeois academic cliques.They went straight to the oppressed communities with the science of Marxism-Leninism, because they knew that poor Black folks were feeling the sharpest end of the blade of capitalism.The Chinese revolution could not have happened without the peasantry, a disenfranchised section of the global working class.Even the Russian Revolution required an alliance with the rural farmers, who would not be considered proletarian, to be successful.There will be no revolution here, without two things.The first thing is an understanding of the concept of the global working class that holds there are two camps: the oppressed and the oppressors, the imperialists and the anti-imperialists, the capitalists and the communists. That understands that any win against imperialism is a win for our class camp.And the second thing is understanding that the “lumpenproletariat” — part- time, non-union workers, non-legal workers, low-wage workers — are part of the global working class and necessary for the building of a revolutionary force against capitalism, imperialism and white supremacy.Who has revolutionary potential?I just learned that Barack Obama used to be a “Marxist-Leninist” in college. Plenty of liberals go through a “socialist” phase until they can afford to assimilate into the white supremacist capitalist machine. Look at how easy it is for these people to fall into neoliberalism and bourgeois reformism!Mao said it best: “These people have their Marxism, but they have their liberalism as well — they talk Marxism but practice liberalism.”Historically, the people with the most revolutionary potential are the people who, under no conditions, could gain anything from playing into the capitalist game of destruction.I couldn’t imagine my broke, Black ass doing anything other than being in the struggle.Everywhere I turn there’s a handful of oppression ready to smack me upside the head, to remind me of my place in this society. What the hell I look like acting like “It ain’t so bad”?As if I haven’t seen, first hand, the results of capitalist exploitation of oppressed and nonconventional workers. I come from a family of fighters, a race of fighters, a class of fighters.Imagine the revolutionary potential of a low-wage worker. Working three jobs under horrible conditions and abusive management, just barely making enough to support their family, and to feed themselves the next day.Watching their water be shut off for petty delinquencies, while corporations rack up thousands of dollars in unpaid water bills, but go unpunished. They know what this system does.Imagine the revolutionary potential of these hustlers and drug dealers and gang members, disenfranchised from society and the job market by the strategic dismemberment of their neighborhoods and families, and the police war on Black and Brown people. They know what this system does.Imagine the revolutionary potential of every prisoner, unjustly imprisoned, tortured and exploited by the “justice system.” Denied health care, privacy, basic human rights. Humans, forced to live like pets under our oppressive state. They know what this system does.If anyone knows the effects of capitalism, it’s these people. If anyone wants to see this system crumble, it’s these people.Meet folks where they are, and have an understanding of the global working class. Understand that, no matter what, we have a responsibility to topple this rotten system.We have to show solidarity with Black Lives Matter, BYP100 and any other organization of oppressed people fighting against this racist system. As a multinational, working-class, socialist and anti-imperialist organisation in the imperialist center, that’s one of the ways we operate.We have a responsibility to our class and to the struggle to be in solidarity with any force fighting against capitalism and racist oppression.But we must push our line on the global working class, because we know socialism is the answer, we know communism is the goal, and we know that the racist Republicans, the Democrackers and social chauvinists are out here, leading the people astray.And through building class consciousness among the most oppressed, moving through the people like a fish through water, we will see the end of the oppressive, Western regime and the hyper exploitation of the people at home and abroad.U.S. imperialism? Down with it!Racist Cops? Down with them!White supremacists? Down with them!Capitalism? Down with it!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

According to SEBI, this amount reflects the undue profits made by Biyanis, FCRL and other notices through their trade of shares on the basis of Unpublished Price Sensitive Information(UPSI).FCRL and FCRL Employee Welfare Trust has been additionally directed to disgorge an amount of Rs. 2,75,68,650/- along with an interest at the rate of 12% per annum from April 20, 2020 till the date of actual payment.The market regulator has imposed an additional penalty of Rupees One Crore each under Section 15G of the SEBI Act, 1992 on FCRL and Biyanis.The order relates to the trade of shares of Future Retail Ltd (FRL) between March 10, 2017 to April 20, 2017 on the basis of unpublished price sensitive information  in contravention of the provisions of the Securities and Exchange Board of India Act, 1992 read with the SEBI (Prohibition of Insider Trading ) Regulations, 2015 (“PIT Regulations, 2015”).On April 20, 2017, FRL made an announcement of demerger of some of its businesses. This announcement had a positive impact on its shares.The SEBI found that Future Corporate Resources and FCRL Employee Welfare Trust purchased Future Retail’s shares prior to the public announcement of the scheme of arrangement.Corporate veil liftedThe SEBI found that trades were authorised by Kishore Biyani and Anil Biyani. They hold beneficial interest in 32% and 15% shares of FCRL, respectively. “Noticee no. 2(Kishore Biyani) was in possession of UPSI. Noticee no. 2 and 3(Anil Biyani) opened the trading account of Noticee no. 1 just prior to the impugned trades which were in violation of the provisions of PIT Regulations, 2015. Noticee no. 3 placed order on behalf of Noticeeno. 1. Noticee no. 2 and 3 authorised transfer of funds to Indiabulls for purchase of shares of FRL in the name of Noticee no. 1. Thus, observations made by Hon’ble SAT in Amalendu Mukherjee case (supra), where the Hon’ble SAT has observed that the corporate veil can be lifted to find out the decision maker behind a juristic person, is one of the guiding factors in the present case”, the 77-page order passed by SEBI Whole Time Member Ananta Barua stated.The SEBI rejected the submissions of the noticees that they were not in possession of the UPSI.Regulation 4(1) of the PIT Regulations, 2015 prohibits insiders from trading in securities when in possession of UPSI.”The fact that the trades by Noticee no. 1(FCRL) was carried out to benefit the promoter group of FRL of which Noticee no. 1, 2 and 3 were part and Noticee no. 2 and 3 were privy to UPSI shows that the impugned trades were undertaken in the account of Noticee no. 1 because of possession of UPSI by Noticee no. 2 and 3.This fact and the totality of facts of circumstances of the present case particularly, but not limited to, the fact that trading account of Noticee no. 1 was opened during the UPSI period just prior to the impugned trading and the trading was done at the fag end of the financial year 2016-17, show that impugned trades were undertaken in the account of Noticee no. 1 because of possession of UPSI by Noticee no. 2 and 3, the real decision takers for the trades of Noticee no. 1. Additionally, having regard to the facts and circumstances of the case I do not find that the purchase of shares by Noticee no. 1 was in the ordinary course of business as Noticee no. 1 has not contended that it was in the business of buying and selling of shares”, the order stated.FRL-Reliance deal unlikely to be impactedThe SEBI has however clarified that the restraint on dealing with share will not apply to those existing holding of securities in respect of which any scheme of arrangement under Section 230-232 of Companies Act 2013 is approved by NCLT.”During the period of restraint, as directed in para33above, the existing holding of securities including the units of mutual funds, of the concerned Noticees, shall remain under freeze.Debarment/restraint/freeze imposed under this order shall not apply to thos eexisting holding of securities of such debarred entities, in respect of which any scheme of arrangement under Section 230-232 of the Companies Act, 2013, is approved by NCLT, requiring extinguishment of such securities and/or receipt of other securities in lieu of such securities”, the order said. This clarification might save the FRL- Reliance deal, which is embroiled in a litigation initiated by Amazon.Yesterday, the Delhi High Court had ordered status quo on FRL-Reliance deal on a plea by Amazon.Click here to read/download the SEBI orderRead more at: https://www.bloombergquint.com/law-and-policy/sebi-restrains-future-groups-kishore-biyani-from-securities-market-for-a-yearCopyright © BloombergQuintCopyright © BloombergQuintSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

That means if you want to comment on a story, you must use your first name and last name — the real ones. The Daily will post only items that are signed, constructive, relevant and interesting.It’s not without a great deal of sadness and ambivalence that I bid farewell to the likes of the immortal “Sam Samstie,” the morbidly obese mock City Council candidate who favored “perfect and cost-free government” and ran a write-in campaign entirely within the confines of online news story comments — lampooning everything and everybody in the city along the way.We’ll miss the anti-establishment “Duffer” and “Beachy Keen,” and “Wyatt,” the “shoobie” with an unrelenting persecution complex. We’ll miss any number of former Ocean City Beach Patrol members conducting petty catfights under pseudonyms.Some of these commenters were among my first loyal readers when I started what turned out to be a three-year experiment in community journalism as editor of the Ocean City Patch.At its best, the online commentary offered a wonderful snapshot of the community. The comments often contained background, insight and perspective that made stories much richer.The measure of Patch’s rapid success as part of the fabric of the community came during coverage of a campaign to allow “Bring Your Own Bottle” restaurants in the dry town. Literally hundreds of comments accompanied each article — the word count of comments exponentially exceeding the actual news coverage. The policy allowing user names made it easy to post quickly and impulsively.There were some wonderfully crazy comments. But over time, anonymity emboldened many commenters (they grew “anonymuscle”). Reasonable readers began to shy away.The crazier trumped the crazy. Then the craziest drove away even the crazier. Until the cast of commenters became very small — offering a mostly dull mix of repetitive bile and drivel.And so the new Ocean City Daily turns to an innovative model for its online comments policy: newspaper letters to the editor.Newspaper editors do something novel — they read letters before they publish them. They choose which ones are most interesting. They edit them and they confirm the identities of authors.So it’s back to the future for the Daily.  We take pride in our hard-earned credibility as a reliable daily news source for Ocean City, and our new comments policy will reflect that.The policy is designed to encourage and welcome the return of a wide variety of commenters.

History by degrees

first_imgEarly in the afternoon of Sept. 23, 1642 — the first Commencement at Harvard College — all nine graduates lined up in front of President Henry Dunster. He conferred degrees on the group in order of their parents’ prominence, which made Benjamin Woodbridge Harvard’s first graduate. After delivering an address in Latin, Dunster handed each new scholar “a Booke of Arts,” wrote one witness. But after the ceremony, Harvard took each book back.It was not until 1813 that Harvard College graduates received something at Commencement they could keep: a uniformly sized, textually common diploma in Latin. (Medical diplomas were first given out in 1817, and law diplomas in 1827.) Before the era of printed diplomas, any graduate who needed a document attesting to a Harvard degree (usually for travel overseas) hired a local calligrapher to pen an inscription on parchment. Then he — always “he” in those days — paid the Harvard president to sign it. When it came to 17th- and 18th-century diplomas, you “rolled your own,” wrote historian Samuel Eliot Morison.Because of this practice, surviving Harvard diplomas from that time come in all shapes and sizes. They have only one thing in common: Latin text, including names and signatures. The first Harvard graduate to have a diploma made was James Ward, a minister’s son who earned his A.B. degree in 1645, despite an earlier public whipping by Dunster for burgling a local residence. He moved to England, and used his Harvard degree to gain admittance to Oxford. The earliest known diploma in the Harvard collections is that of George Alcock, who received his A.B. in 1673. Dated 1676, it is Puritan-plain and conspicuously small, about 10 inches by 6. Many archived examples, however, are elaborately inscribed, fitted with ribbons and seals, and ostentatiously large. For his 1769 A.B., Thomas Kast ordered up a flashy sheepskin 24 inches wide.None of the 29 Harvard diplomas from those early centuries — despite bursts of fanciful filigree — could be called fine art. Even strictly as documents, they have limited utility for historians since they merely confirm identities and dates of graduation, which were already recorded in the Triennial Catalogs of that era. (The first catalog was printed in 1674 on the press at the Indian College — as a broadside. Not until 1776 was Harvard’s list of graduates large enough to merit a pamphlet.)But there is undeniable magic to the originals, penned on paper or skin and anchored by the ornate signatures of people from Harvard’s resonant far past. Urian Oakes, Harvard’s fourth president, signed Alcock’s diploma. He steered the College through the bloody years of King Philip’s War. Increase Mather, Harvard’s last resolutely Puritan president, signed his son Samuel’s 1701 master of arts diploma. In 1839, legendary law professor Joseph Story, who taught at Harvard while a justice of the Supreme Court, signed the diploma of LL.B. graduate Henry Mason. So did Harvard President Josiah Quincy III, who had a sound head for business and an iron fist for student discipline.Vintage diplomas and other Commencement documents may also reflect dramatic historical realities. The Triennial Catalog for 1682, which lists 1665 College graduate Caleb Cheeshahteaumuck as an “Indus,” also reveals the demographic fragility of 17th-century Harvard. There are no graduates listed for 1644, 1648, and 1672, and only one each in 1652 and 1654. (The 17th century produced only 439 graduates, about one-quarter the number of the Class of 2014; of those 17th-century graduates, 132 — 30 percent — died before the onset of the next century.) Soon came the era of “general degree diplomas,” published in lieu of Commencements cancelled because of war, disease, or economic depression. The earliest general diploma at the Harvard University Archives is for 1752, the year of a smallpox outbreak in Boston.Other diplomas in the Harvard archives signal other kinds of drama, like the one for Gertrude McDonald, whose A.B. was granted in 1894, the first year of the new Radcliffe College. The Schlesinger Library has in its vaults three proofs that women belonged at Harvard all along: the diplomas given to Ruth Lansing — for a bachelor’s degree in 1908, a master’s in 1909, and a Ph.D. in 1914. “It’s not just a piece of paper with a name,” said Schlesinger research librarian Sarah M. Hutcheon of each old diploma. “There’s a story behind it.”— Corydon Ireland 11The remains of the 1849 A.B. diploma of Edward Lorenzo Holmes. Tucked into a safe, it survived the fire of 1871 — although “it is clearly evident,” wrote heir and donor Randolph W. Holmes in 1929, “that the ‘sheep skin’ has turned to a substance analogous to glue.” 3This is an 1840 replica of the honorary LL.D. bestowed by Harvard on George Washington — “Georgium Washington” — on April 18, 1776. 2Puritan minister Increase Mather, Harvard’s sixth president, signed this 1701 Master of Arts diploma for his son Samuel Mather. 14The elaborate and large diploma commissioned by Thomas Kast on the occasion of his 1769 graduation from Harvard College. 5Grace Rebecca Canfield’s subsequent A.B. degree from Radcliffe College in 1894, its first year. 15The Latin-text LL.B. diploma of Clarence Clyde Ferguson Jr., who graduated from Harvard Law School in 1951 and taught there from 1976 until his death in 1983. He was a decorated veteran of World War II, an ambassador, a professor, and an author. 8The 1855 diploma of William Gouverneur Morris, who earned an LL.B. degree from Harvard Law School. It was signed by Harvard President James Walker, under whose regime (1853-1860) Harvard constructed its first sciences building, offered its first music course, and hired its first black staffer, boxing instructor A. Molyneaux Hewlett. 4An 1883 certificate from the Society for the Collegiate Instruction of Women attesting that Grace Rebecca Canfield had completed coursework equivalent to a bachelor of arts degree at the school better known as the “Harvard Annex.” 7Harvard’s 1682 Triennial Catalog, an early example of a traditional list of all graduates, living and dead, printed as a broadside starting in 1674 and posted at every Commencement. By 1776, the list of graduates was long enough to merit a pamphlet. A five-year publication interval was adopted in 1875. The last number of the “Quinquennial Catalog” appeared in 1930. 17A detail from the 1951 LL.B. diploma of Clarence Clyde Ferguson Jr., which shows the bold, clear signature of James Bryant Conant, Class of 1914. His regime (1933-1953) marked the beginning of the University Professor program, need-blind admissions, the predecessor of the Harvard Kennedy School, the Graduate School of Design, the Nieman Foundation for Journalism, women in Harvard classrooms, and general education courses. 9Harvard College’s general degree diploma dated Oct. 3, 1775, signed by President Samuel Locke. At the time, the College was exiled to Concord, Mass., while Harvard was an armed camp housing the Continental Army. 12A phony medical diploma, dated 1865, designed by the Medical Faculty Society (“Med. Fac.”), a covert group founded in 1818 to perpetrate elaborate pranks. For generations Med. Fac. specialized in fractured Latin. The diploma is “signed” by Harvard President H.B. Parker (fictitious) and granted to Joseph Wheeler Reed (an actual member of the Class of 1867). 1This diploma for George Alcock, A.B. 1673, is the earliest known example in the Harvard University Archives. It is dated April 19, 1676. 10The earliest Harvard Law School diploma in the University’s collections, from 1839. It memorializes an LL.B. degree earned by Henry Mason. 16An 1864 honorary Master of Arts degree diploma for Marshall Train Bigelow, signed by Harvard President Thomas Hill. This represents an era — 1860 to 1902 — characterized by extra-large Harvard diplomas. 18The 1827 A.B. diploma for Cornelius Conway Felton, a classics scholar who was president of Harvard from 1860 (when he presided over the first graduating class of more than 100 students) until his death in 1862. 13Radcliffe College graduate Ruth Lansing’s 1914 diploma, memorializing her Ph.D. in Romance philology. 19Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. — Class of 1861 graduate, Union Army officer, and future justice of the U.S. Supreme Court — received his LL.B. from Harvard Law School in 1866. His diploma, pictured, is part of Harvard’s collections. 6The “general degree diploma” of 1752, the earliest of its type preserved in Harvard collections. Such diplomas, listing all graduates, were printed in years when Commencement was interrupted by war, disease, or economic depression. In 1752, Boston suffered an outbreak of smallpox. 20A sample Harvard bachelor’s degree diploma from 1989. It was in 1963 that graduates of Radcliffe College first received diplomas jointly with graduates of Harvard College.last_img read more
