The apartment building, located in Barajas in the group of blocks under the management of the new extension of Barajas, was generated mainly at first to catch the light, wind and outdoor life.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeBased on the urban zoning for this block, the building is conceived as a game where the apartments act as blocks on top of five floor slabs creating interspersed terraces and open spaces.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe building is organized around open corridors of the old “corralas”. This condition creates interrelation between neighbors and new living spaces. The apartments have a human character which comes from its architectonic qualities and new common spaces: the hallways, terraces and central interior zone.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe facade is defined by the identity and uniqueness of each housing unit. Each was conceived as “a Box Top¨, made ​​with only two precast concrete slabs, providing time saving, fast and easy installation. A hybrid architecture that emerges from the combination of simple pieces which create a complex result: single range of different colors and materials generated various possibilities.Save this picture!Precast DetailsPre-fabricated elements of the facade provide an economy of construction by reducing cost and waste and strengthening the concepts of ecology and sustainability of the building.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThermal comfort and lighting is gained through the naturally favorable orientation of the facade to the south and east, and the openings opposite the main side of the housing (providing cross ventilation). This solution saves the costs of artificial air conditioning throughout much of the year.Save this picture!Public Space, Ground Floor PlanThe public square within the block is derived from the representative elements of culture in Madrid. Derived from conceptual collage, the result is a warm and collected space. The materials remain concrete and cobble, which are softened by green areas, areas of rest and children’s spaces.Project gallerySee allShow lessSix of Britain’s Best Shortlisted for Crystal Palace ProjectArchitecture NewsMiCasa / Stephen Davy Peter Smith ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Barajas, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

House in the Trees / Estudio Aloras

A plot of land, a tree, the Sun, a plan, a desire, and the memory. To think about a house is an opportunity, a vehicle that carries us to interweave someone else’s desire with ours and a context that, at some point, is inevitable. A plot in a small gated community in the city of Funes, next to the city of Rosario, is acquired by a couple that proposes a simple plan, with specific premises in relation to the material and formal cadence of the object in question, as well as the desire of a series of well-defined experiences in the way of connecting with the environment.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!Plan – Upper floorSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThis piece of land is surrounded by lush vegetation in its north and west borders and it is crossed by a huge Tipa tree throughout the whole north-south area. The background towards the east is the most free-from-trees area. The south edge is where the Sun will probably be present for more hours during the summer and, there, the pool will be placed. The house is set up next to the street, trying to establish a definite limit between the public and the private, so as to leave the biggest portion of plot free towards the back. Almost like a game, this piece, in order to be settled in this part of the plot, allows everything that surrounds it, to mold it. The guidelines of the borders, the outlines, and the big tree that fragments it, breaks it, moves it, and pushes it to the limit, leaving an empty space towards the sky, and building, at the same time, a semi-covered space.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!Section – AASave this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThe house intentionally opens and looks at itself; it invites us to go through it to find fragments of the sky, along this path. Just as a tree grows, the house settles in, it adapts itself and it stretches towards the empty space, establishing a dialogue with its immediate forest environment. The resultant is not more than the reading of an opportunity: the one given by the geometry imposed by the land, together with the presence of a big tree. The will of the future inhabitants in using reinforced concrete gives back not only interesting tectonics and formal relationship with the environment, but also it allows to solve extreme structural matters, by contrasting its resistance with the qualities given by the free-flowing nature of the material, which allows as to mold it like a stone on the ground.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessPine Needles Residence / NDDSelected ProjectsEl Nido House / Taller Estilo ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Area:  210 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House in the Trees / Estudio Aloras Martín Aloras ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard 2019 Manufacturers: AutoDesk, McNeel, Trimble CopyHouses•Argentina Architects: Estudio Aloras Area Area of this architecture project Projects Houses Lead Architect: Argentina Photographs:  Federico Cairoli Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House in the Trees / Estudio AlorasSave this projectSaveHouse in the Trees / Estudio Aloras Photographs ArchDaily Year:  CopyAbout this officeEstudio AlorasOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on April 27, 2021Cite: “House in the Trees / Estudio Aloras” [Casa en los árboles / Estudio Aloras] 27 Apr 2021.

Unions, parents support NYC school bus drivers

first_imgCartoon: KwameNew York — More than 8,000 school bus drivers and matrons who transport 152,000 pupils in this city every day, many of them children with special needs, were forced to go on strike Jan. 16 to protect not only their jobs but also the safety of the children they serve.Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the Wall Street mogul who owns Bloomberg News, left the drivers no choice when he and his Board of Education head, Chancellor Dennis Walcott, refused to negotiate further with Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1181 over the issue of seniority and job security.The New York State AFL-CIO, in a statement supporting the bus drivers, says that “the union’s hand has been forced by Mayor Bloomberg, who requested bids for contracts without critical safeguards that help ensure our children’s safety. For the first time in 30 years, the mayor has removed a requirement that keeps the most qualified, experienced, and skilled drivers on the job.”This is a struggle against austerity, as well. The city is trying to save money by no longer requiring that companies bidding for contracts keep the current drivers and matrons who have experience and skill handling small children, including those with disabilities. It’s a disgrace that in the same city where Wall Street funnels trillions of dollars into the pockets of the super-rich, the administration claims it can’t find the money to get children safely to school.Besides setting up 24/7 picket lines at locations around the city, union members are handing out palm cards explaining the issues and asking the public to sign an online petition supporting the workers. Information about where to join the pickets can be found at; the petition can be signed at and picket line solidarity are coming from other New York unions. U.S. Labor Against the War has also supported the strike, as has Local 8751 of the Steel Workers union, which represents school bus drivers in Boston who have struck successfully over similar job security wording in their contracts.City can’t shake solidaritySince this struggle started, the mayor and school board head have tried to turn parents against the bus drivers’ union. But many parents are expressing their support for the drivers and matrons, understanding that the hardships their children face are caused by city officials, not the workers and their union.One organization that has been wrestling with the school board over its complicated bus routes and schedules, which have caused children to spend unnecessary hours en route, is Parents to Improve School Transportation.On the first day of the strike, PIST sent out a release, saying, “‘As the parents and guardians of NYC school children, we support the school bus union members who, to protect their careers, have been forced to strike by the mayor and the DOE,’ said Sara Catalinotto of Parents to Improve School Transportation. …“‘We strongly doubt the city’s claim that it is dropping the Employee Protection Provision to raise money for classrooms. The EPP is a seniority list, ensuring that the most experienced drivers and matrons will be employed first to transport our children — many of whom are students with disabilities. Including the EPP in contracts does not cost the city any extra!’ …“Sharlene Figueroa, mother of three children who ride mini-wagons, concluded, ‘Corner-cutting by the DOE under mayoral control has already lowered busing standards. It’s not an accident that we are PIST.’”PIST sponsored a strategy meeting at the disabled-accessible ATU 1181 hall on Jan. 19.  Attending were parent leaders; unionists who work for city agencies, schools and mass transit; senior school bus drivers; and a member of the group 99 Pickets. Children in the meeting created artwork about the strike, which was delivered the same afternoon to two picket sites, along with food donated by Communications Workers Local 1180.The mayor has tried to minimize the hardships imposed on children and their parents by this struggle. He has trumpeted his plan to provide Metrocards and supposed alternate means of transportation. But a sharp drop in school attendance by children with disabilities — many of whom cannot possibly use public transportation — shows how important it is that the super-rich who run this city abandon their attempt to undercut workers with seniority and experience.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

What do Consumers Really want to Know about Agriculture?

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News What do Consumers Really want to Know about Agriculture? Arnot on ag valuesPrior to the Purdue-Nebraska football game Saturday in West Lafayette, Nebraska grad Charlie Arnot was on campus talking about agriculture with students and faculty as part of the Learning from Leaders program. He is CEO of The Center for Food Integrity, the organization dedicated to building consumer trust and confidence in today’s agriculture and food system.Arnot says that’s the not for profit’s mission and it’s important because there is growing skepticism about whether or not agriculture is trustworthy.“People are increasingly concerned about big,” he told HAT. “They are concerned about the industrialization of food and the concern about whether or not then that makes the food safe for them and it’s being produced in a responsible manner. So it’s a real opportunity for those of us in agriculture to reframe the entire discussion, to spend more time talking about our values and help consumers understand that yes, how we farm has changed, but our commitment to do what’s right on the farm has never been stronger.”Certainly there have been vocal opponents of production agriculture, but CFI research suggests the percentages concerned about the direction of ag are high enough that many not so vocal consumers are latching onto that message. Arnot agrees.“In fact when we ask consumers if the food system is headed in the right direction or the wrong track 42% of women say they believe say they believe it’s headed in the wrong track. That’s a problem for those of us in agriculture and food because women are core consumers and also core influencers on these issues.”Arnot says talking about agriculture’s values, not scientific data, is the way to build trust with consumers.“To engage with consumers what they want to know is can I trust you to do what’s right? What we hear from consumers is I trust farmers but I’m not sure farming. And so we have to help them understand that yes, the practices have changed, but the men and women involved in agriculture are still as trustworthy as they’ve ever been.”He says it’s a tough battle but “a battle we can win and a battle we should win. The ethical high ground, the moral high ground, belongs to farmers. It really does. We need to reclaim that and talk more about our values and talk less about science to reclaim that level of public trust we’ve historically enjoyed.”He says the long road of erosion of public trust started over 50 years ago.  By Andy Eubank – Oct 13, 2013 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleFree Rangers Can’t Have It Both WaysNext articleGrowth Energy’s Buis Responds to RVO Rumors Andy Eubank SHARE SHARE What do Consumers Really want to Know about Agriculture?last_img read more

Woman sentenced to a year’s forced labour over one ironic tweet

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders urges the Chinese authorities to rescind the sentence of one year of “reeducation through work” that has been imposed on a 46-year-old woman, Cheng Jianping, for relaying a comment on Twitter. It is believed to be the first time that someone has been sent to a labour camp in China because of a tweet.“Cheng Jianping just retweeted an ironic comment on a subject that touches the sensitive chord of Chinese nationalism,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This was not organized dissident activity. Unable to control Twitter, it seems the Chinese authorities are trying to set an example in order to get the microblogging platform’s users to censor themselves. They are cracking down harder on netizens everywhere.” 365 days for 140 characters Cheng was arrested on 28 October, the day she was due to get married, for a tweet she had posted on 17 October under the pseudonym of Wang Yi (@wangyi09). It was a retweet of a satirical comment about the tension between China and Japan and the anti-Japanese demonstrations taking place in China, and ironically suggested that protesters should attack the Japanese pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo. Cheng has more than 5,000 followers on Twitter.Cheng Jianping’s tweet Help by sharing this information Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes to go further November 24, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Woman sentenced to a year’s forced labour over one ironic tweet News March 12, 2021 Find out more China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Access to Twitter is blocked in China but Internet users can get round the Electronic Great Wall of China by using proxies. Twitter and Facebook hacked Another blogger, Tibetan writer and intellectual Tsering Woeser, has meanwhile been the victim of hacker attacks again because of her posts about the human rights situation in Tibet. Her blog ( and her Twitter, Gmail and Facebook accounts have all been hacked in recent weeks. She reports that photos and personal information on her Twitter profile were changed. Only her Twitter and Facebook accounts have so far been restored. Using “subversion” as pretext Another netizen to have been singled out recently because of what he posts online is Li Tie (李 铁), a 48-year-old pro-democracy activist based in the central city of Wuhan, who was arrested on 15 September. The initial charge was “inciting subversion,” which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, but it was changed on 22 October to “subverting state authority,” which is punishable under article 105 of the criminal code by life imprisonment or a minimum of 10 years in prison. The police are reportedly now pressuring the family not to hire their own lawyer for Li and instead use a state-appointed lawyer.According to Chinese Human Rights Defenders, Li was threatened by the authorities in the past and was told to stop organizing meetings to commemorate Lin Zhao (林昭), a poetess who spent nearly a decade in prison before being executed. In April, it was “suggested” that he should not meet with his friends or post any article “for an indefinite period.”Li wrote for Democratic China and Boxun and like Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo (刘哓波), who is serving an 11-year sentence, he was a Charter 08 signatory Persecuted for defending public interest The fate of Zhao Lianhai (赵连海), the creator of the “Kidney Stone Babies” website, is unclear. Although he originally said he would appeal against the 30-month jail sentence he received on 10 November, Chinese Human Rights Defenders reports that he did not meet the 22 November deadline. He is also said to have recently refused to meet with his lawyers and the government news agency Xinhua reported yesterday that he had filed a request of an early release on health grounds.Zhao was convicted of “inciting social unrest” for running a website about the milk powder sold by the Chinese company Sanlu that was adulterated with melamine, and for calling for judicial proceedings against the authorities implicated in the scandal (read the article). Hundreds of thousands of Chinese infants, including Zhao’s son, fell ill after consuming the milk powder and six new-born babies died.center_img April 27, 2021 Find out more News She was sentenced on 15 November to a year of forced labour in the Shibali River “reeducation through work” camp in Zhengzhou, in the central province of Henan, on a charge of “disturbing social order.” Her lawyer, Lan Zhixue, has appealed against the sentence, an administrative order that was issued without any form of trial.To our knowledge, Cheng is the first person to be imprisoned just for posting a comment on Twitter.Her fiancé, Hua Chunhui, who was held for five days, says he has not been allowed to visit her. He reported that she began a hunger strike on 15 November in protest against her sentence, although she suffers from tuberculous pleurisy, a chronic lung condition.He said on his Twitter account (@wxhch): “I don’t know how (she) spent her first days in the labour camp, whether she is still on hunger strike, whether she is being subjected to inhumane treatment or what her state of health is.
