The design grew from the client’s desire to ‘re-set’ each time he returned from work. He would arrive by car straight from the airport, without the time to adequately slot back into society. Our client was a single FIFO worker at the start of the project, who wanted a laid-back and robust sanctuary back home. He would arrive by car from the airport after a month off-shore and wanted the house to be instrumental in readjusting his mindset back into an on-shore, city-based existence for the ensuing month. The home needed to allow a gradual adjustment. Nothing too abrupt. Connection with Fremantle, but also plenty of privacy and dimly lit space to enjoy solitude. A place that was gentle on the senses, yet also engaging. Together with the client, we devised an entrance sequence to perform the initial reset.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bo WongFrom the garage, entry is via a back gate, which provides access to a protected porch with lush potted vegetation. From here a solid front door with a high light window. Pass through this into a narrow space with brick floor and walls, dark stained plywood cabinetry and a pond visible through a frameless glass door. A compressive and contemplative space. A right turn leads into a circular space with a low ceiling: the library, which doubles as circulation nexus. From here go straight ahead into the living room; turn right for the spiral stairwell; left for the kitchen; or hook right for the toilet. A place to re-orientate and also to remember. The final stop before passing through deep thresholds to parts of the house where the local living can begin.Save this picture!© Bo WongThe kitchen, still dimly lit and cross-ventilated through louvers from the pond, is a galley and becomes a built-in dining booth at the northern end. The dining room shares a single story volume with the kitchen, which gives way to a double height volume passing East towards the living room. The living room is where the solitude of the ground floor encounters the cheer of a brighter and more outward looking the first floor, via a double height volume. This transition is less gradual in the spiral staircase, where black-stained treads switch to lime-washed ones just below the first-floor landing. Lime-washed timbers and white walls predominate on the first floor, which is brightened by many windows and a double-glazed skylight over the corridor.Save this picture!© Bo WongDoors are frameless and skirting boards integrated. The focus is downwards and outwards. To the North, a full-width operable lattice screen provides sun protection and privacy for both levels of the house. The screen is made of Hardie Lattice, an economical off-the-shelf product appropriated to painted Duragal frames on simple pin hinges and rod stays. They, along with abundant quantities of face brick, painted concrete floors, integrated glazed brick splashbacks and plywood lend the home a rudimentary and relaxed feel. The client wanted to kick off his shoes, walk in off the beach, have his friends over without worrying too much. The surfaces have been designed with this in mind, as robust and hardy finishes.Save this picture!© Bo WongSave this picture!Section 2Save this picture!© Bo WongProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse on the Great Wall / MDDM STUDIOSelected ProjectsHouse of Would / EliiSelected Projects Share “COPY” Manufacturers: James Hardie Australia, Austral Bricks, Bluescope, James Hardie, Nemetschek, Paperock, Austral Plywood Area:  240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Blinco Street House / Philip Stejskal Architecture Photographs:  Bo Wong Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officePhilip Stejskal ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFremantleAustraliaPublished on June 02, 2019Cite: “Blinco Street House / Philip Stejskal Architecture” 02 Jun 2019.

Communities rally around Mumia Abu-Jamal

first_imgPart of the crowd participating in the March 10 Mumia event.Philadelphia’s West and Southwest neighborhoods came together as a community on March 10 at the Kingsessing Free Library in solidarity with Mumia Abu-Jamal and all political prisoners. Dozens of residents took part in an afternoon of hands-on learning and political discussion centered on Abu-Jamal’s latest book, “Have Black Lives Ever Mattered?”Hosted by community activist and radio host Gabe Bryant, the event was organized by a coalition of groups, including the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, Workers World Party, Socialist Action, Friends of Kingsessing Library, Mobilization4Mumia, Sankofa Community Empowerment and Food Not Bombs Solidarity. The multimedia presentation included several video clips and documentary footage related to the Black Lives Matter movement and Abu-Jamal’s own arrest and struggle for freedom.Those in attendance also heard an audio recording of Abu-Jamal reading a section of the introduction to his new book. It ended with his thanking attendees and expressing his love for each and every one engaged in the struggle.Participants in the event formed breakout groups to discuss various subjects covered in the book, including the meaning of the uprising in Ferguson, Mo., the murder of Trayvon Martin and police violence in schools. Each group reported back to the assembly and joined in a spirited discussion on the book’s themes and the future of the movement.Workers World member Deandra Patrice Jefferson discussed the connection between Abu-Jamal’s case and that of Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, who recently returned to prison on false ­pretenses. She noted that many youth in Philadelphia are familiar with the campaign to Free Meek and emphasized bringing this new generation of energy and interest to the movement for Mumia.Anthony Smith, with Philadelphia REAL Justice, also discussed the generational divide and stressed the importance of creating space for younger organizers and activists who are so disproportionately the target of state violence. Smith also encouraged people to be involved in the fight to stop gentrification, including Temple University’s push for a sports stadium in North Philadelphia’s predominantly Black community around the campus.Betsey Piette, with the Mobilization4Mumia, gave updates on the state of Abu-Jamal’s health and his legal battle. Pressure has mounted on District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office to release files related to Abu-Jamal’s case that should expose former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Ronald Castille’s duplicity concerning Abu-Jamal’s appeals. A status hearing is scheduled for March 27, where supporters will continue to voice their basic demand: Free Mumia Now!While a victory was achieved in 2011 when Mumia was taken off death row, the need to free him from prison is as urgent as ever. The state of his health is dire after nearly 40 years in prison with horrendous neglect by prison medical staff.The Friends of Kingsessing Library was formed over a decade ago and won a successful fight to keep open their branch of the Philadelphia Public Library. Food Not Bombs Solidarity provided delicious meals to all those in attendance. With the support of his friends, family and community, both in Philadelphia and internationally, Mumia Abu-Jamal will one day soon walk out of prison a free man.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Trump, China and the stock markets

first_imgThe longer that U.S. stock markets continue to rise, the more nervous become the investors and all the financial analysts. On Friday, Aug. 23, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by over 600 points after proclamations by Donald Trump that his trade war with China would intensify, putting higher tariffs on Chinese imports. What he and the big business media failed to mention is that his tariffs are the equivalent of taxing the people in the U.S. who buy these imported items. In other words, Trump has just raised taxes on the U.S. working class, who make up the bulk of the consumers of lower-cost Chinese goods. He is raising taxes even as the U.S. government budget deficit keeps rising, largely due to enormous expenditures on the war machine, even when no wars have been declared. The last time Congress declared war was in 1942. How many undeclared wars has the Pentagon waged since then, during both Democratic and Republican administrations? The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the annual government deficit will for the first time exceed the astronomical sum of one TRILLION dollars by next year. That’s the deficit for just one year. The total amount owed by the federal government is already up to $22 trillion, which amounts to 70 percent of the entire annual gross domestic product of the United States.The banks and other institutions that lend this money to the government may be growing fatter and fatter on the interest they get, but it is obvious that everything is heading toward a crisis in which the workers will be the ones to really suffer.Trump and ChinaOn Aug. 26, the Monday following the big Dow Jones decline, the markets began to partially recover after Trump claimed that China had since “blinked” and a “deal” was in the making. Regardless of who really blinked, the U.S. stock markets’ reaction showed how important People’s China has become to U.S. capitalists as a market for their products.It also showed how flimsy the investors’ hopes are and how easily they are manipulated by Trump’s demagogy. The markets perked up on Monday because Trump, while in Europe for a meeting of the G-7 imperialist countries, had told the press the night before that “China called last night” and “we’ll be getting back to the table.” Who from China called? No matter. Don’t ask questions. Up go the stock prices. However, Editor-in-Chief Hu Xijin of Global Times replied in a tweet that negotiators from both countries did NOT talk on the phone and that “China won’t cave to U.S. pressure.” (CNBC, Aug. 26)Fear of recessionGyrations of the stock markets may make investors richer or poorer day by day, but the fear of recession remains a constant for a much more basic reason.Overproduction is a cyclical feature built into capitalism. In their constant competition for a larger share of the market, the owners of capital must expand production while trying to reduce the cost of each item. This leads to rapid technological change and an increase in constant capital (equipment, plants, etc.) while reducing variable capital (labor).It also leads to a glut of commodities on the market, and eventually a collapse, with millions losing their jobs. Karl Marx meticulously explained how this boom-and-bust feature of capitalism functions in his monumental work, “Capital.” In such a collapse, workers may not only lose their jobs but also their pension funds, which are invested in the system.The antics of Donald Trump may shake up many owners of capital because of his unpredictability, his exaggerations and outright, easily disputed lies, plus his disinterest in even trying to cover up his ignorance of facts. He is trounced daily by many media outlets loyal to the capitalist system because they’re afraid of the damage he is doing to the stability of their system.But progressives have better reasons to fight the Trump regime. Trump and his followers are openly racist, misogynist and bigoted. They make scapegoats of im/migrants and poor people. They cover up the crimes of the system with poisonous words and deeds meant to divide the multinational and global working class. Capitalism is the enemy, and Trump is but one of its many faces.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

He recently had a surprise visit from Hunter Kennedy, an offensive lineman for UAB and a couple of his teammates.Kennedy, a four-year letterman at Charles Henderson High School, is now a freshman at UAB.center_img By Jaine Treadwell “It’s cancer of the blood,” Cory said. “The doctors said I’ll get to go back to school next year. I feel better now. I feel good.”Cory’s mom, Theresa Porter, said Cory’s has had an uphill battle since Aug. 2, when he “passed out” at Walmart in Dothan.“Cory was with his dad and he just passed out,” she said. “He is border-line diabetic so his dad thought it was that. Some ladies were in the checkout line with them and one of them gave Cory an orange and he got to feeling better.”But, the next morning, Cory began to run a high fever and was taken to Troy Regional Medical Center.“His white blood count was way too high, and they sent him by ambulance to Birmingham,” Porter said. “At Children’s they made the diagnosis real quick. The doctor said he was 90 percent sure it was leukemia but we wouldn’t know for sure until Monday.”On Monday Porter said, “We knew.”“Everything that could go wrong went wrong for Cory,” she said. “There were problems with his heart, his kidneys, his liver and his lungs. He was on a ventilator. They worked with him for 48 hours straight before they got him stabilized. One shift would come on and another would go off but they never left him. They did great work. We’ll never forget how hard they worked to save Cory.”For Cory Porter, the 2014 school year didn’t start as he had planned.Cory had hopes of playing football for the first time. His battles were going to be on the gridiron. Now, he has a much tougher battle but he said he’s up for it.If Cory’s fever is normal tomorrow, he might be able to come home for the Labor Day weekend, but he’ll have to be back at Children’s on Tuesday.“He’s looking forward to coming home and I hope we can get there,” Porter said. “But we’ll do what we have to do.”Cory would appreciate cards from home. His mailing address is Cory Porter, Room 807, QB, Children’s of Alabama, 1600 7th Ave. South, Birmingham, AL 35233. Book Nook to reopen Published 8:19 pm Thursday, August 28, 2014 For Cory, deciding which team to pull for will be a tough decision.His hopes are that both teams will play their best, but he hopes Troy will get the win.“That’s my home team,” he said.Cory will have the continued support of the UAB football team as well as his “home team” and his hometown as he battles acute myeloid leukemia. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Former CHHS football player visits current CHMS student at Children’s Following Kennedy’s leadership, players from the UAB football team have visited Cory on two other occasions.“That made me feel happy,” Cory said. “They were cool. And, to me, they were real big. I had my picture taken with some of the players and all of the players signed a football for me. That made me feel good, too.”Troy University and UAB will kick off the 2014 football season Saturday at Legion Field in Birmingham Saturday.

Men risk health by failing to see GP

first_img Previous Article Next Article Half of UK men admit they would delay going to see a doctor if theydeveloped the warning signs of cancer. A survey commissioned by the charity Cancer Research UK to coincide with thelaunch of a campaign called Man Alive, found a considerable proportion of mencould be compromising their health because of a reluctance to visit GPsurgeries. Only 52 per cent of men questioned for the poll said they would immediatelyseek medical help if they found traces of blood in their stool, despite thisbeing one of the commonest symptoms of bowel cancer. Younger men were most likely to cite embarrassment as a reason to delaygetting their symptoms checked, whereas those in the 45-plus age group wereconcerned about what the doctor might find. Lack of time was a factor acrossall groups. A third of men said their female partners had convinced them to make adoctor’s appointment when they did not really want to. Dr Richard Sullivan, head of clinical programmes at the charity, said:”Usually, symptoms turn out not to be cancer. But an early diagnosisensures all treatment options are available, which can improve the outcome.” Men risk health by failing to see GPOn 1 Jul 2004 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
