For that reason, it is proposed a project that intends to re- characterize the terrain, and that establishes a platform for the house implementation. (elevation 86.50 ) .Save this picture!© Ivo Tavares StudioFor the access to the house, it is proposed two different acesses: one for the cars and another for the pedestrians, these being the link between the entry into the terrain and the entrance to the house. The spatial distribution of the house is resumed to a radical separation by function per floor.Save this picture!Site PlanThe service/social areas, are located at the entrance level, along with the hall, WC, office, kitchen, pantry, dining/living room and the stairs. At this floor it is proposed the creation of crannies areas for shade (at living/dining room) and for rain protection (outdoor lobby) .Save this picture!© Ivo Tavares StudioAt level 1, the most private area, is comprised of bedrooms areas and sanitary facilities. At this floor there are also crannies, but for exterior platforms (terraces) to support the bedrooms. These platforms create a private zone in terms of exposure. The creation of such crannies (on both floors) also aimed to dissimulate the initial rectangular shape of the house.Save this picture!Floor PlanSuch function separation by floors, leads to a tiny relation with the terrain levels, i.e., the level 0 is connected to lower level of the terrain and the level 1 is connected with the higher level of the terrain. It was sought on the project dissimulate the service areas, removing its visual importance. Thus, these areas are located at the back side of the house, being “buried” on the terrain.Save this picture!© Ivo Tavares StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessRogers Partners and PWP’s Constitution Gardens Redesign Approved for National MallArchitecture NewsA House Named Fred / in situ studioSelected Projects Share House in Águeda / nu.ma | unipessoal CopyAbout this officenu.ma | unipessoalOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortugalPublished on October 19, 2014Cite: “House in Águeda / nu.ma | unipessoal” 19 Oct 2014.

Police siege creates trauma for Philadelphia neighborhood

first_imgOne week after the now infamous Aug. 13 Philadelphia police assault and 7.5-hour siege of the African-American Tioga neighborhood, new facts are coming to light. Maurice Hill, whom police targeted and now allege shot six officers, had no outstanding charges, nor was his address on the police warrant. The alleged police search warrant was for a building two houses from 3716 North 15th Street where Hill rented an apartment. Police now claim they did a “safety sweep” and raided both houses at once because they believed “drugs or weapons” were going into Hill’s house “in a duffel bag.” (Inquirer.com,  Aug. 15)Police have offered no evidence that drugs were found in Hill’s apartment.Police occupation in Tioga neighborhood in Philadelphia.Lawyers with the Defender Association of Philadelphia point out that police officers searching a property without a warrant could constitute an illegal search. In the same article, DAP attorney Bradley Bridge said that officers “would need to get a warrant for the second location. That’s what the Fourth Amendment mandates.” He noted that extenuating or emergency circumstances could possibly justify failure to obtain a warrant, but allegedly witnessing someone carry a duffel bag (contents unknown) into a house does not constitute an emergency.  Tioga neighborhood residents call the regular police practice of checking people for warrants “Jump-out Tuesdays.” Less than a week after the shootout, one resident reported seeing 13 police cars and increased random stops of people in the neighborhood. Another resident stated that police share the blame for what happened, noting that they knew about drug dealing on the block but allowed it to become a serious problem. (Inquirer.com, Aug. 22)According to sources cited in the Aug.15 article, officers from the Narcotics Strike Force broke down the front doors at Hill’s address, ran upstairs, into the basement and into his kitchen when Hill allegedly opened fire — after he was clearly under attack.Without a valid warrant police had no justification for attacking Hill, regardless of any previous arrest record he might have had and regardless of the outcome. And they had no justification for carrying out this occupation of a Black neighborhood.They had no justification for preventing parents from picking up their young children for hours from two daycare centers near the shootout site. Nor for preventing parents from returning home to their school-aged children, who had been home alone for hours because of the police blockade. Nor for keeping people from going to work, securing food or engaging in any normal activities prevented by the police blockade.Media’s racist biasWhen the local and eventually national media covered the standoff, police were portrayed as “brave,” “under attack” and “heroes.” Hill became the “gunman.” No one is saying whether the shots that injured the officers, none seriously, were fired by Hill or fellow police. Corporate media portrayed the Tioga section of Philadelphia as a “bad neighborhood.” Yet wealthy, white, suburban neighborhoods — homes to the CEOs of major pharmaceutical companies convicted of profiting off the promotion of OxyContin — are never the targets of police raids or labeled “bad neighborhoods.” And the media have yet to acknowledge the brutal history of Philadelphia police who assaulted the Black Panther Party in 1969, who waged an 18-month siege of the Powelton Village neighborhood leading up to an assault against the MOVE organization in 1978, and who bombed a MOVE house, murdering 11 men, women and children in 1985. Pennsylvania’s ‘Castle Doctrine’ upholds right to self-defenseEven Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner is hedging his bets on whether the police assault is defensible. He would not disclose if Hill’s name was on the warrant and declined to comment about the legality of the police search that led up to the standoff.  Krasner claimed that the alleged gunman “needed to be off the streets,” but essentially admitted that, while Hill had a long record, he had no open cases since January 2018. In other words, police had no justification for targeting Hill and DA Krasner had no grounds for claiming, in the Aug. 15 Inquirer article, that he “needed to be off the streets.” To end the siege, Hill eventually contacted a lawyer and arranged to surrender, hoping that the international media spotlight might prevent his death at the hands of Philadelphia police. Yet under Pennsylvania’s “Castle Doctrine,” Maurice Hill had every right to defend himself, and former progressive attorney Krasner understands this well.  Workers World was in the courtroom in 2013 when attorney Krasner successfully defended Philadelphia community activist Askia Sabur against multiple felony charges leveled by the police after they viciously attacked him in 2010.  Police claimed they had been injured when Sabur defended himself.Krasner’s argument then — picked up by presiding Judge Roger Gordon — was that under Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine, self-defense is justified against police using unreasonable force and putting a defendant’s life at risk. Gordon noted that a defendant cannot be found guilty of resisting arrest for arguing with officers.Krasner is well aware that the state’s case against Hill is questionable and told the media the case would be delayed because the investigation of collected evidence could take months.Community cannot afford ‘months’Krasner’s withholding evidence for “months” shows just how out of touch he is with Philadelphia’s most oppressed communities. Much of the “evidence” includes the impounded possessions of Tioga residents who, like Hill, are victims of the police attack.Their cars, riddled with bullets, were seized as evidence with no indication of when they will be returned. Many residents rely on their vehicles for work. They blame police for creating the siege, then damaging their property and taking no responsibility for repairs. One mother of 10- and 12-year-old children described their terror of being trapped alone for hours until police allowed her into her home at 1 a.m., where she found her children crying. A week later they still don’t want to go out to play. “This block is full of children, always,” the mother told Inquirer.com on Aug. 22. “They play basketball, ride bikes, they eat water ice here, but they won’t come outside no more.” According to the paper, “She keeps thinking about how police treated her during the shooting, saying police didn’t identify themselves or make sure residents were safe. Their whole approach, she said, was wrong.” Other Tioga residents interviewed expressed sympathy with their neighbors, the alleged “drug dealers,” who were picked up as a result of the police siege. Block captain Cynthia Muse credited some of the arrested men for their involvement in the neighborhood, including holding barbeques and block parties and putting up a basketball hoop low enough that even the youngest children could play. Muse labeled the massive police presence in the neighborhood as “martial law.”Freelance journalist Melissa Simpson, who grew up near the Tioga neighborhood, addressed social media support for Hill in the Aug. 22 article: “This is a guy who’s doing something we’ve never seen before: he’s shooting at cops … and he came out alive. That’s unprecedented.” As for the lack of community concern for the injured police, Simpson noted, “It’s really difficult to have empathy for oppressors.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

News media told not to interview “terrorist groups”

first_img News RSF_en Organisation News News PhilippinesAsia – Pacific May 3, 2021 Find out more March 8, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 News media told not to interview “terrorist groups” to go further Receive email alerts Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today at the warning not to carry interviews with “terrorists groups” which President Gloria Arroyo issued to the news media on 5 March, a few days after the army called for a law that would sanction media that do this. A ban on interviewing rebel groups is also included in an anti-terrorism bill currently before congress.These measures will have the effect of imposing “censorship” and “self-censorship” on the Philippine media, the press freedom organization said. “We are aware of the need to combat terrorist organizations, but we condemn the fact that the media could be exposed to sanctions for just doing their job of disseminating the news,” the organization said in a letter to President Arroyo.Agence France-Presse quoted presidential spokesman Ignacio Bunye as saying the measure would be applied “on a case by case basis, depending on the interview’s content.” He did not specify what sanctions would be used, but the media could risk having their licences withdrawn.Bunye also pointed out that a law banning the dissemination of calls for the “government’s overthrow” is already in force in the Philippines.The warning has come at a time when the army is stepping up its offensive against armed bands and terrorists groups, especially Abu Sayyaf – which is accused by the Philippine and US authorities of links with the nebulous Al-Qaeda – and the communist New People’s Army. There are also separatist movements – the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the Moro National Liberation Front – on the southern island of Mindanao. The term “terrorist group” is very vague. Reporters Without Borders believes that it should be up to the news media themselves, and not any other body, to decide who they interview.Abu Solaiman, the spokesman of the Islamist group Abu Sayyaf, last month claimed responsibility on the air for bombings on 14 February that killed 12 people and wounded about 100 others in Manila and two southern towns. The National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) said in a release: “Giving access to Abu Solaiman’s claim of responsibility for the Valentine’s Day blasts was not a crime. Exploding bombs is a crime. Airing a claim of responsibility, on the other hand, served the public’s interest to know of details behind the event.”The NUJP has condemned the new measure, describing it as a “restriction on press freedom” that will result in practice in journalists being kept out of the conflict zones.

AB 533 will incentivize and encourage participation in water agency conservation programs designed to increase water use efficiency and improve storm water management throughout California.“California’s water shortage is a structural issue that we must do more to address,” said Senator Wiener (D- San Francisco) a co-author of AB 533. “As our droughts grow longer and more intense, it is crucial for the state to make it easier and more affordable to participate in water efficiency and storm water runoff programs.”“AB 533 provides clarity and certainty for water agencies that they can provide incentives to local business and residential consumers that make sense for their communities without the burden of issuing 1099s or concerns that their consumers will be discouraged from participating in these important programs by an additional tax burden,” said Cynthia Koehler, Executive Director of WaterNow Alliance which is co-sponsoring the bill.“Rebate programs are a cost-effective way to increase water efficiency and support efforts to adapt to a changing climate. Penalizing people with a tax bill for doing the right thing discourages participation in the very programs we need to meet our conservation objectives,” said Jeff Kightlinger, General Manager of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.“Encouraging residents to reduce water usage by planting sustainable water efficient landscapes, installing “gray water” capture systems, or purchasing new water-efficient appliances can provide significant water savings.” said Mary Ann Dickinson, Executive Director of California Water Efficiency Partnership. “As local water agencies scale up their water conservation programs to meet new statewide water efficiency mandates, AB 533 will support these efforts by removing the barrier of state income taxation.” Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Project Graduation plans in the works, donations needed

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest By admin – May 16, 2018 Twitter Pinterest OHS Broncho, PHS Panther grads.jpg Prizes, games and scholarships will be the featured attractions at Project Graduation celebrations later this month for Odessa and Permian high schools.Both alcohol-free events will be held after graduation at the Odessa College Sports Center. Permian’s will be May 25 and OHS on May 26. The celebrations each end at about 3 a.m. the next morning.Both celebrations are run on donations and more funds are needed. For OHS, contact chairperson Lisa McIntosh at 432-288-0648 or Yolanda Vasquez at 634-6459 and for Permian, contact Heather Hutson, chairperson, at 432 238-5705.Permian chairperson Heather Hutson said she expects between 450 and 550 students.There will be a casino upstairs, basketball and volleyball tournaments downstairs, plus inflatables, air sports and jumpers and free food and water. Hutson noted that the event is a safe alternative for students.Among the prizes is a chance to earn scholarships to Odessa College and the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.“I think it’s great. One of the first years they did it was when I graduated from OHS. It’s an option for them to come and hang out with their friends one last time,” Huston said.She added that it may be the last time students see their classmates for several years.Plans are to purchase items students may need for college such as computers and TVs. An incentive to stay the whole night is that youngsters could win big prizes. Hutson said based on the amount of donations received, they could get a $1,000 gift card.There will be security, so once a student leaves, they won’t be allowed back in, she said. Claire Adams, an 18-year-old PHS senior, said she’s planning to attend and she’s looking forward to it. She has been a guest previously.“I would say it’s a fun opportunity and it’s clean and you know you’ll be safe there. … It’s a good way to win money and prizes that you can use … for college,” Adams said.Adams said she plans to attend Abilene Christian and study business. She attended Permian for three years.“I’ve had different teachers and some teachers have really helped me and some have not, but that’s how it would be anywhere. I think that if you try and you put effort into it, you can get a good education there. If you don’t, that’s your fault,” Adams said.OHS’ Project Graduation will have many of the same activities as Permian’s celebration.“We’re in the midst of raising more funds to get prizes,” Chairperson Lisa McIntosh said.Along with the scholarships from OC and UTPB, one of the alumni classes is offering scholarships, McIntosh said.“We’re trying to really help these kids out because some of these kids it’s hard for them to go to college,” she said.The goal is to get every one of the graduates to attend, which as of the first Project Graduation meeting was 655, McIntosh said.“I can say from my own prior experience, I graduated back when, and it was an all night party and we had an amazing time. We are hoping, crossing our fingers that every kid walks out that door with something,” McIntosh said.Since the first announcement in January, she said the project graduation group has been trying to raise awareness and funds.“… It’s for the kids. It’s for the students. We’re trying to make it as fun as possible so they can go to college, or even if they stay local, to make it easy for them if we can get them scholarships,” she said.Logan McIntosh, an 18-year-old senior, said the party seems like it will be fun and he will get to spend time with his friends.Asked about a bright spot at OHS, Logan said he got to come full circle with his principal. Mauricio Marquez was principal at Blackshear Elementary when Logan went there and is now principal at OHS.“I’m excited, but then if you think about it went so fast,” he said.More Information WhatsApp Project Graduation plans in the works, donations neededcenter_img Odessa High School.Permian High School.
