The historic Yale Steam Laundry structure possesses a rich physical history that is written in its vaulted floor structure, its oddly-spaced floor framing and in its pock-marked concrete and brick. This patina of time imparts a character upon the space it encloses that once erased, cannot be recreated. The project design asserts that this character is important and should be preserved, and that new interventions should be minimal, legible and discrete.

The V house of Cha’er Hutong is located in a courtyard house of Beijing Dashilar. The ‘V’ of the V house was taken from the architectural structure in two important V traffic space, and covers the concept of the “micro”. It implies that the small spatial intervention in the space can provide more behavioral possibilities.Save this picture!Courtyard. Image Courtesy of hyperSityLike the general condition in Dashilar, the courtyard house with four-side halls, where the project is located, traditionally was belong to one family. It has been transformed to “Dazayuan”, which means the ownership has been distributed to a total of 7 to 8 households. After four families moved out, a complete hall was formed in the north side.Save this picture!AxonesAs the agglomeration region where businessmen from all over the country in Beijing, the imperial Dashilar has resulted in the integration of “national culture”, “grassroots culture” and “mixed culture”. The architectural transformation of V house tries to expound and convey how to deal with the role of new design in the old city renewal project, where accommodates both local and migrant people.Save this picture!Entrance Mezziline. Image Courtesy of hyperSityThe architect’s desire of the transformation is not to erase the traces of the necessary spatial elements that are constantly superimposed by the ages. In the case of clear property rights, valuable and meaningful constructive space can be preserved, and new design techniques can be used to better integrate into the overall appearance of the area and activate new cultural memories.Save this picture!Courtyard. Image Courtesy of hyperSityThree renovation strategy of the V House was implemented. First of all, the space of the courtyard needs to improve the utilization efficiency. This variable, functional and complex spatial volume is implanted with interior integrations of the kitchen, shower, bathroom, laundry room, the laundry room, the office, the tatami and the rest room, by using the straw board material.Save this picture!SectionThe high space is formed by the east and west bay after removing the ceiling on the first floor which is open and free: it can be used for living, co-working, exhibition and small activities. On the second floor, working space is set, with semi-private space for sit-down discussion. In the triangle of the roof space under two main beams, two “V” type transport space is functioning the effective organization of multiple elevations layers.Save this picture!First Floor Corridor. Image Courtesy of hyperSityThe other big strategy is to replace the self-built part with a more solid and permanent construction. The architects took advantage of the traditional courtyard grey bricks to pile up the brick wall, forming two enclosed courtyard based on the original footprint of the self-built parts. While ensuring internal privacy, it also increases transparency for looking out. After the facade on the east side of the brick wall is fully opened, wooden grille and glass curtain wall are added to provide good lighting.Save this picture!Children Play. Image Courtesy of hyperSityThe third strategy is to readjust the courtyard open space occupied by the self-built architecture and make full use of the roof space to create a three-dimensional public space. The public activities in the indoor space can be extended to a moderate degree, including a relaxation of individual person, a private conversation between two people or a discussion of more than three people.Save this picture!Circulation. Image Courtesy of hyperSityAfter the regeneration of hutong courtyard house, V house has become an incubator providing multi-functional venues to welcome the entrepreneurial teams of neighboring Yangmei Zhuitai Street as well as out comers as new residences. In the V house, people’s activities are flexible: individuals can plan their own living space, and a group people can plan artist residence and multimedia creation.Save this picture!2F PlanNew form of business and life in this courtyard could be made, through the spontaneous selection and combination of different patterns of behavior. In 2017 Beijing Design Week, an activity “ttg × slanting floor: 6 hours with strangers + melancholy newsroom”, hosted many young participants who did not know each other to experience different activities, and live broadcast in the Internet.Save this picture!Aerial View. Image Courtesy of hyperSityHutong life is compact. Every renovation of V house will continue to affect the lives of its neighbors and leave a trail of new life. Neighbors use the small platform to lay out their shoes for drying, and clotheslines are placed over the newly designed hollowed-out brick wall. Instead of an isolated architecture, Hutong life is constantly superimposed on the new renovations.Save this picture!Children Play. Image Courtesy of hyperSityThe future Dashilar, should be distinguished from the gentrification of elite community, but to present the continuation of their particular characteristics of a living and mixed traditional community. The way to get the Dashilar out of the awkward position as the dying heritage of Ming and Qing dynasty or the fast urban commodification is to synchronize with the modern facilities improvement while carrying the sprits of particular local hutong traditions.

Trump gang in crisis: Attacks on people spread

first_imgIn addition to the government campaign against the undocumented, there is mounting murderous racism fomented by Trump and his Islamophobic rants.March 6 — The Trump administration’s crisis deepens as accusations of ties to Russia multiply and surround him and his aides. Meanwhile, this authoritarian, racist, misogynistic bigot is opening up a war on the people and what is left of gains won over the last 50 years. Especially under attack are the millions of undocumented workers.The war within the capitalist state has reached a boiling point, with Trump accusing former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Towers during the 2016 election campaign. It is being assumed that Trump heard this on Mark Levin’s right-wing talk show, promoted by Breitbart News. Steve Bannon, Trump’s special “strategy” advisor, previously ran Breitbart.Trump made the accusations against Obama in a tweet after he flew into a rage when racist Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who now heads the Justice Department, recused himself from all investigations about the campaign. Sessions’ recusal came after he was found to have lied to the Senate Judiciary Committee about having contact with Russians.What Trump did not consider, in his rage, was that electronic eavesdropping would have to be carried out by the FBI. Eavesdropping on the presidential candidate would be a crime, unless there was a warrant. Since there was no such warrant, according to James Clapper, the former director of National Intelligence, Trump’s charges against Obama would implicate the FBI in a crime.The head of the FBI, James Comey, has now demanded that the Justice Department refute these charges because, according to Comey, they are false. So far the Sessions Justice Department has refused to disavow the charges.This public dispute between the White House, the Justice Department and the secret police spy agency has created the biggest political crisis for the capitalist government since the Watergate crisis that forced President Richard Nixon to resign in the summer of 1974.Crisis of repression for undocumented workersMeanwhile, the Trump administration is quietly expanding its arrests and harassment of undocumented workers. There was big coverage in mid-February when 680 undocumented workers were seized in raids in a one-week period.The Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement have now changed their public relations strategy. The government is continuing raids all over the country, just not publicizing the total roundups. Take last week as an example. Three workers were picked up in Detroit and 16 were arrested in Ypsilanti, Mich. (freep.com); four workers were arrested in Trenton, N.J. (nj.com); six youth were arrested in Charlotte, N.C. (Charlotte Observer); a restaurant was shut down for two weeks when four workers were detained in York County, Pa. (phillyvoice.com); nine workers were arrested in Grand Island, N.Y., and 23 in Hamburg, N.Y., both near the border with Canada (wkbw.com).These are random examples of at least 65 workers rounded up in one week at a wide variety of locations. The reports surfaced only on local radio stations and in local newspapers. They show that ICE agents are everywhere and are exercising their newfound authority to arrest any of the 11 million undocumented workers in this country.More widely publicized was the arrest of the Dreamer Daniella Vargas in Jackson, Miss., after she spoke at a press conference denouncing the recent arrests of her relatives. ICE is supposedly not authorized to arrest Dreamers. Alongside this was the deportation of Romulo Avelica-Gonzalez while taking his daughter to school. These arrests were publicized only because cell phone videos were taken and distributed.In addition to the government campaign against the undocumented, there is mounting murderous racism fomented by Trump and his Islamophobic rants. Two Indian men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, were shot in Kansas. Kuchibhotla died as the alleged killer, Adam Purinton, yelled, “Get out of my country.” Purinton also shot and wounded bystander Ian Grillot, who was trying to stop the attack. (New York Times, March 4)A similar racist hate crime took place near Seattle a few days earlier when someone shot a Sikh man, Deep Rai, who was working on his driveway. The shooter also told Rai to “Go back home.”Furthermore, during the past month there have been numerous desecrations of Jewish cemeteries across the country, as well as bomb threats at dozens of Jewish community centers.In another ominous sign, Attorney General Sessions has indicated he will not enforce the Justice Department’s consent decrees, issued under the Obama administration, to rein in local police departments, most notoriously in Chicago. This can only be interpreted as a green light to police forces everywhere to step up already murderous repression.In addition, Trump has rescinded protections for transgender students to use school bathrooms of their choice, and the Supreme Court has returned the case back to the lower court without a ruling.Movement must deal with anti-Russia barrageThe movement is faced with a barrage of anti-Russian propaganda. The problem is that the anti-Trump forces in the capitalist political establishment, the media and especially the Democratic Party leadership are also at the present time the anti-Russia forces — i.e., the military hawks, the party of belligerence and militarism.The tendency to root for the anti-Russia forces as long as they bring down Trump is very strong. It is the line of least resistance and a convenient political tool for Democratic Party leaders as well as many Republican politicians. Unless the movement resists this anti-Russia demagogy, it will align itself with the hawks of the ruling class.The long-term goal of the U.S. ruling class with respect to Russia is to weaken Russia’s independent government and turn it into a vassal state — the way it was under Boris Yeltsin, during the first eight years after the collapse of the USSR. Wall Street and the Pentagon want Moscow to follow Washington’s lead, hand over investment rights and open up access to its vast resources.Trump and especially ultra-right ideologue Bannon have a strategic vision of a rapprochement with Russia in preparation for a conflict with China and a conflict of civilizations with the Islamic world. (See WW, Feb. 23.) Their vision is not a peace plan.In the torrent of accusations about Russian ties, some may be true, some may be false, and some are insignificant. In any case, they are part of a massive attempt to block any move by the White House to relax relations with Russia and make concessions on sanctions, in the Ukraine or anywhere else.On the other hand, no one should be swayed by false nostalgia for the USSR, which was a socialist country. Putin is the agent of Russian nationalism, which means he represents the Russian ruling class, made up of anti-socialist oligarchs. Reactionaries throughout Europe and Russia consider Putin the “great white Christian hope.”Putin is helping the Syrian government for strictly geostrategic reasons; Russia is defending a base in the Mediterranean that dates back to the USSR. He is helping the resistance in Ukraine in order to keep the country, which borders Russia, from being swallowed up by the West. Progressives should support these efforts, without falling under the illusion that because Putin is backing some progressive causes, he and his oligarchic regime are progressive.Trump and Russian moneyIn addition to strategic political goals, one cannot discount the possibility that Trump’s relations with Russia are also based on financial interests. Trump has adamantly refused to release his tax returns. He has claimed that he has nothing to do with Russia. These are dubious claims.One example is the case of his Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and his connections with Russian money. Ross is a billionaire parasite who specializes in buying up companies in financial difficulty, stripping them of their assets and selling them off.According to multiple sources (Miami Herald, New York Times and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC), Ross is the primary owner of the Cyprus Bank. This bank is known as a haven for laundering money for Russian oligarchs. When Cyprus had a banking crisis in 2014 and depositors could not get their money, Ross participated in the rescue, together with the Russian government.Ross then invited the head of Deutsche Bank to head Cyprus Bank. Deutsche Bank recently had to pay a $630 million fine for laundering $10 billion in Russian money. Deutsche Bank has been the only major bank to loan money to Trump.Another partner in Cyprus Bank was Dmitry Bybolovlev, a Russian multibillionaire potash king. Bybolovlev was trying to hide his assets and in 2008 bought a Trump property in Palm Beach for $95 million — a U.S. record at the time. Trump had bought it in 2004 for $41 million. So Trump made a $54 million profit on the sale. P.S.: Bybolovlev never set foot in the mansion, and it has since been torn down.There are numerous other connections between Trump and Russian money, including the admission in 2008 by his son Donald Jr. that “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets.” (deathandtaxes.com) There are also recent reports of Trump dealings in Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. So political and financial interests may merge in the case of Trump. His greed is legendary, and that has been a powerful force all his life.Massive removal of regulatory protection for workers and environmentSteve Bannon, the Trump ideologue, has used the phrase “deconstruction of the administrative state.” Translated into ordinary language, that means the destruction of all regulations that protect workers, oppressed people and the environment.The Trump administration is rushing to destroy all regulatory restrictions on corporate greed. Over 90 major regulations are in the process of being stayed, delayed or removed since Trump took office. (NY Times, March 5)Seventeen automakers have submitted a list of regulatory changes they want, including removal of mileage standards, emission controls, etc. The pharmaceutical industry is asking that restrictions be removed on prescription drugs for unapproved uses. Trump has already lifted regulations on coal mining and oil and gas exploration.Trump has overturned a rule that protected pension investors from fraud and another that protected drinking water from pollution.Banks no longer have to charge fees to their high-income customers to protect against high-risk losses. The Business Roundtable has submitted a list of 16 rules it wants removed.Rules regarding air pollution, unemployment compensation, endangered species, credit card fees, drilling on the Arctic Shelf, data security, internet neutrality and many other issues are under review. In each case the requests for reviews come from corporate pressures. It’s no wonder the stock market is surging.Such regulatory protections embody a century of struggle to protect the environment, consumer safety, workers’ health and safety, wages and working conditions. They have already been eroded in many cases. But Trump and Bannon are making a full-scale assault.This calls for a massive fightback.There has already been a good national turnout, especially in Wisconsin, for the Day Without Immigrants. Women are planning a Day Without Women on International Women’s Day. And May Day demonstrations are being talked about across the country.Waiting for Trump to be toppled from above is conceding to the class enemy the primary role of getting rid of Trump. Trump needs to be toppled from below — by mass resistance. That is the only road to victory.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Michelle Obama Pushes Her School Lunch Food Agneda

first_img Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – May 28, 2014 Even retired military leaders who are part of the Mission: Readiness organization joined Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack in opposition to congressional efforts against these healthier meal standards. These retired leaders say the new standards are needed to reduce obesity – as obesity or being overweight is the Number One medical reason why young adults can’t enlist in the military – which is a major threat to national security. They say about 75-percent of all young Americans between the ages of 17 and 24 are unable to join the military for different reasons – including being physically unfit. SHARE First Lady Michelle Obama hosted school food service directors Tuesday at the White House to discourage Congress from granting waivers from rules under the 2010 Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. As a mother and First Lady – Obama says she finds the efforts in Congress to roll back the rules objectionable – according to The Hagstrom Report – since school meals cost taxpayers 10-billion dollars per year. She says the nation is facing a crisis as parents don’t want their efforts undermined when they send their kids off to school. Many have made statements that students don’t like the foods required under the new rules – and the First Lady responds to those by saying that her own daughters growl at her when fish is served for dinner – but that doesn’t mean she stops serving it. Obama says her Let’s Move campaign has been making progress and she will fight the hard fight to hold Congress and others accountable for what they are proposing.

Austin Lumberjacks.The TCU defense entered this week with several question marks, but with one half down, it has kept Stephen F. Austin (SFA) from getting on the board and held the team to a mere 39 yards.After 16 minutes of play, both teams’ quarterbacks were 8-for-13. That makes the game sound even. Look at the yards, and it’s a different story. Trevone Boykin had 180, and Zach Conque had 3.Boykin totaled 243 yards in the first half, passing the 9,000 career yard mark. That number makes him the nation’s active leader.The Frogs got off to a slow start, going three and out on their first drive.Things turned around on their second possession with 24- and 41-yard receptions by Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee, respectively.The defense had another setback when safety Kenny Iloka was injured in the first quarter. He was helped off the field and has not returned.In 30 minutes of play, the Frog offense averaged 8.6 yards per play, compared to 1.1 for SFA.

€200 million expansion for LIT

first_imgAdvertisement THE first phase of a €200mn redevelopment of Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) will commence within a few weeks. The college will look to connections in Silicon Valley in the US for support in funding. The project, which will see the college expand on the north side and within the city centre, is estimated to be completed by 2030. LIT President,  Dr. Maria Hinfelaar told the Limerick Post that while all of the funding is not in place yet, €20 million has been raised through capital development funding and prudent saving.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Basically we have been saving up for this project for some time, and while some funding is from the Department of Education, most is from our own resources” said Dr. Hinfelaar who confirmed that additional space is badly needed at LIT.“We are currently at 95% occupancy, with the average for a college at 80%”.She said that the new campus will not only be an extension of the existing main building in Moylish and the art college on Clare Street, but will include the addition of new buildings.“We always get excellent reviews from an academic and a staff perspective but we always fall down on the quality of learning space.“The redevelopment will include space for a new library, civic and social space and room for group and project work, that is currently so limited.“With such an increase in the number of children at primary schools and a growing catchment, we need this project to bring us into the 21st century; there are currently 6,027 students here and we expect that to reach 9,000 by 2030”.Dr Hinfelaar, who has been engaging with the city council on the undertaking, said there is agreement that it will be beneficial to extend the campus in the heart of the city.Confirming that the project will create “significant employment,” she said it would be unfair to estimate the number of jobs that will come on stream.“There has been speculation about the number of jobs to be created but it’s unfair to estimate. However there will be many jobs in management, construction, external and internal work and more”.Along with drawing on capital development funding and organising fundraising drives, the college has turned to Silicon Valley, with which it has several links, for support.Continued on page 4.
