The intervened house is placed in Bairro da Encarnação, a Lisbon’s neighborhood built in 1938, well-known by its twin-houses typology. The new house was totally rebuilt from scratch, maintaining only the main façade and the tile roof design exactly as the original ones.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGRegarding the house volumetry, a new ‘L’ volume was added to the original house image, resulting in the proposed expansion which stands out from the original architecture and volumetry. The house extension was made by advancing the house over the patio, from the rear and side elevations, which were designed in a different architectonic language regarding the original one, distinguishing the “old” from the “new”.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIn this new volume, bigger and wider windows were designed. On the side elevation, a horizontal window was placed all along the dinning-room area. Still in the same side elevation, a big vertical window is designed in order to separate the dining from the living areas on the ground-floor and to lighten-up the walking-closet on the 1st floor. On the other hand, on the rear façade a big sliding window at the ground-floor level was designed, covering the house in all its width in order to extend it and open it to the garden. On the ground-floor, with the set forward of the house over the pateo the kitchen was moved towards the rear façade thus increasing the social area. This configuration enables a better use of the garden as a social area and promotes an interconnection with the house. Also in the ground-floor an office and a bathroom were added.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGWith the volumetric expansion of the house, an inside pateo was designed in order to increase natural ventilation and to allow more sunlight in its whole interior. The new house was organized to revolve around this yard, flooding with natural light even the most interior spaces. The vertical circulation was concentrated in a single stair, resolving easily the access between floors. On the first floor three bedrooms and one master-suite were designed together with one complete sanitary facility.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGA technical zone in the basement was also designed, provided with two ventilated areas, thanks to the creation of two English-wells, placed close to the main elevation. Above the lot, a wall was implemented, with an entrance door and two sliding gates, allowing parking for two cars. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFinally, the garden at the back was divided in two areas, separated by a seat which serves as a retaining wall, being also the flowerbed´s extension. In the garden area, at the upper level, a row of trees and shrubs were planted, drawing by itself a green frame.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessING Tech Offices Poland / mode:lina architekciSelected ProjectsL264 Office / FFWD ArquitectesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930686/encarnacao-ii-house-joao-tiago-aguiar-arquitectos Clipboard Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930686/encarnacao-ii-house-joao-tiago-aguiar-arquitectos Clipboard “COPY” ArchDailylast_img read more

BAYAN USA: Solidarity with Standing Rock

first_imgBAYAN-USA, a progressive anti-imperialist alliance of over 20 Filipino organizations, sent a delegation to Standing Rock, N.D., in solidarity with the Sioux Nation in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline — and all Indigenous people protecting the water and lands, facing state repression and corporate plunder. The alliance issued a press release on Oct. 20 entitled “From the Philippines to Standing Rock: Water Is Life, Land Is Life, Fight for Self-Determination.” Excerpts are printed here; see full statement at tinyurl.com/gp5o83a/.“We are here to carry messages of love, hope, solidarity, and resistance from our homeland, the Philippines, which is comprised of dozens of distinct ethnolinguistic tribes and national minorities. We stand with you — the water and land protectors of North Dakota — as the U.S. government continues to prioritize corporate interests over your autonomy, self-determination and ancestral relationship to the land and water.“We stand with you in resistance against the U.S. military state and its violent dispersal of your people, trumped-up charges, and human rights abuses. … We stand in solidarity, as police deploy military-grade equipment, including armored vehicles, surveillance helicopters, planes, drones, and attack dogs — knowing that this state repression is endemic to U.S. imperialism and the suppression of resistance all over the world. …“Similar to the 280 Indigenous tribes that have united here at Standing Rock, SANDUGO, an alliance of national minority groups in the Philippines held a protest at the U.S. Embassy in Manila [on Oct. 21] … against U.S. imperialist plunder and militarization, and [is] fighting to defend their ancestral lands and right to self-determination. [Protesters] were violently dispersed with water cannons, teargas, and over 50 people were injured when a police van … [ran] over people repeatedly.“The brute force from the Philippine military and police to protect the U.S. embassy is in line with maintaining U.S. imperialism over the rights and welfare of the Filipino people. From our homeland in the Philippines to the militarization of communities by Urban Shield, to the killing of Berta Cáceres in Honduras, and to defending Indigenous rights in Standing Rock, we denounce the criminalization of resistance and stand with the protectors of land, water, and human dignity all over the world.‘Protect our waters and territories; No to Dakota Access Pipeline!’“The International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self Determination and Liberation in the Philippines (IPMSDL) stands in unity with the Standing Rock Sioux Dakota and Lakota Indigenous Peoples in asserting their right to protect the waters of their ancestral lands.“Chairman Dave Archambault II of the Standing Rock Sioux reminds the world that Indigenous Peoples suffer from poverty and environmental sabotage because we are forced to subsidize for-profit corporations through schemes such as [DAPL]. … The U.S. government started the construction of the DAPL without the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) of the Standing Rock Sioux Dakota and Lakota Peoples. …“The IPMSDL strongly urges the U.S. government to respect the rights of Indigenous Peoples within and outside its territories, … immediately halt construction of the destructive [DAPL] and honor the obligations and treaties it has signed and endorsed with respect to Indigenous Peoples and human rights.”IPMSDL calls for “Indigenous Peoples Rights organizations and groups to support the Standing Rock Sioux Dakota and Lakota Indigenous Peoples in their continuing fight for their right to self-determination.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Top USOC executive fired in wake of searing report on Nassar scandal

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailsportpoint/iStock(NEW YORK) — A top official at the United States Olympic Committee was fired on Monday over his delayed response to the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.The USOC fired Alan Ashley, its chief of sport performance, in the wake of a searing report that claimed he failed to protect victims after learning of allegations against Nassar, who molested young athletes under the guise of medical care for decades, the committee said in a statement Monday.An independent report, conducted by law firm Ropes & Gray, said Ashley and former USOC CEO Scott Blackmun learned about the allegations more than a year before they became public, but failed to take action. Blackmun resigned in February.The report detailed how olympic officials and some of those with USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University “ignored red flags” and “dismissed clear calls for help” from young athletes who were being abused by Nassar, according to the 233-page report.“While Nassar bears ultimate responsibility for his decades-long abuse of girls and young women, he did not operate in a vacuum. Instead, he acted within an ecosystem that facilitated his criminal acts,” the report said. “Nassar carefully constructed a comprehensive system of abuse.”Ropes & Gray said it reviewed more than 1.3 million documents and interviewed more than 100 people, including gymnasts and employees and board members of the USOC, USAG and the U.S. Center for SafeSport.Gymnastics coaches Martha and Bela Karolyi, who ran the Texas training center where much of the abuse occurred, declined repeated requests to be interviewed as a part of its investigation, according to the firm.“The U.S. Olympic community failed the victims, survivors and their families, and we apologize again to everyone who has been harmed,” Susanne Lyons, a USOC board member and incoming board chair, said in a statement Monday. “The USOC board commissioned this independent investigation because we knew we had an obligation to find out how this happened and to take important steps to prevent and detect abuse.”Nassar pleaded guilty in federal court and two Michigan state courts last year and is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.In all, Nassar committed thousands of sexual assaults beginning in the early 1990s and through the summer of 2016, according to the report.“He abused some survivors one time, while abusing others hundreds of times over a period of many years,” the report said. “With the cover he crafted, he became, in the words of one survivor, a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing,’ who cloaked himself in the ‘guise of a loving friend and medical professional.’”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Ocean City’s $100 Million Capital Plan Wins Council Approval

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiCity Council on Thursday night approved a $100.1 million, five-year capital plan that includes an array of major drainage, roadway and dredging projects to address Ocean City’s critical infrastructure needs.The plan spreads projects across the entire town and builds on the momentum started in the last few years to help the city catch up on badly needed improvements, Mayor Jay Gillian said.“The plan commits more than $100 million to tackling long-overdue projects in every part of the island. It’s a lot of money, but I’m confident that the plan is responsible,” Gillian said in a statement.The mayor explained that the city’s AA bond rating, low interest rates and a growing ratable base make this “an ideal time” to invest in infrastructure improvements.“Most importantly, the work will contribute to the quality of life we’ve all come to expect in Ocean City,” he said.Mayor Jay Gillian says the capital plan tackles long-overdue projects across the island.On average, the capital plan would cause the local property tax rate to increase by about a penny per year. On a home assessed at $500,000, that would mean about an extra $50 annually in local taxes, said Frank Donato, the city’s chief financial officer.“We feel this plan is manageable and affordable for the taxpayers of Ocean City,” Donato told Council.The plan runs from 2018 to 2022 and represents a nearly $12 million decrease compared to the five-year, $112 million capital program that Gillian proposed in 2017.Altogether, the new capital plan calls for $38.7 million in construction in 2018, including paving projects to improve the road network, drainage work to reduce flooding and dredging along the shallow lagoons in the back bays.For the first round of projects to be funded for 2018, Council also introduced a $5.7 million bond ordinance Thursday.A beach replenishment project in the north end and a series of improvements to public buildings and recreational facilities are among the projects funded by the bond ordinance, Donato said.Other key projects in the funding ordinance include improvements to the Music Pier and the pool inside the Ocean City Community Center. New lighting and landscaping upgrades are also among the capital projects that are funded, Donato said.Overall, proposed spending is down compared to the record-high, five-year capital plan submitted last year because a series of major projects were started or finished in 2017. They included road construction across the city, dredging in three bayfront neighborhoods and the Boardwalk’s facelift between 10th and 12th streets.The capital plan proposes spending $4 million for new dredging projects in 2018. Vince Bekier, aide to the mayor, said the city still must decide which lagoons will be dredged this year. Those areas will be announced later during a town meeting.In 2018, the plan calls for $4 million worth of dredging projects to clear out the shallow lagoons along the back bays. (Courtesy Ocean City Public Information Office)Road and drainage projects to reduce flooding across the island continue to be a major part of the capital plan. In 2018, the plan calls for $7.7 million worth of road and drainage construction.The single-most expensive project is the city’s proposed $17.5 million public safety building. Gillian, though, said the fate of the existing public safety building still must be decided before the city moves ahead with the project.Gillian originally proposed tearing down the building last year and replacing it with an all-new public safety complex to house the police department and municipal court. Later, he proposed renovating and expanding the old building as the most cost-efficient option. But now, he believes the project must be analyzed even further before any decisions are made.During the public comment portion of Thursday’s Council meeting, John Flood, a former councilman, urged the governing body to delay voting on the capital plan to allow for what he called “a reconciliation” of the city’s capital spending. Council gave its approval anyway.Former Councilman John Flood, who is potentially running for mayor in the May 8 municipal election, wants more information on the city’s capital spending.Flood, who potentially is running for mayor against Gillian in the May 8 municipal election, questioned whether the city actually funded all of the projects that were proposed in the capital plan in recent years.In an interview after the Council meeting, Flood said he wasn’t opposed to the city’s capital projects, but believes more information is needed about how much money was actually spent on construction.“There’s never been a reconciliation, not one that I found, for the capital plan in 2015, 2016 and 2017,” Flood said in the interview. “There were supposed to be $120 million in projects, but $72 million is actually what happened. Where was the other $48 million?”Donato, however, assured Council that “at least 95 percent” of the projects in the capital plan were funded in the past five years.Councilman Keith Hartzell, echoing the comments of other Council members, thanked Gillian and Donato for presenting Council with a comprehensive capital plan. Hartzell noted that when he first joined Council in 2006, the city’s capital plans were never as detailed as they are now.The full capital plan is available for the public to review on the Ocean City municipal website at http://www.ocnj.us/projects/ On Tuesday June 5th, Landberg Construction, LLC will begin installing drainage improvements at the intersection of 41st Street and West Avenue. (Pictured is another drainage project previously completed in Ocean City.)last_img read more
