Shounan House / Jun Igarashi Architects

first_img Shounan House / Jun Igarashi Architects Area:  161 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Japan “COPY” Year:  Architects: Jun Igarashi Architects Area Area of this architecture project Photographs:  Iwan Baan Text description provided by the architects. About the Site The site is located at an intersection in the Kanagawa prefecture, west of Tokyo. It is a 10-minute walk from the station in an area with many older housing buildings. Across the street on the north side, there is an enormous factory behind a two story wood construction apartment. On the south side there is a three-story housing complex and  on the west side there is an old abandoned house. This project is larger than the surrounding building because there is no gift tax due to the reconstruction of an existing building.

EDITORIAL: Monte Rushmore defensa del genocidio – una indignación monumental

first_imgJusto cuando pensábamos que las cosas no podían empeorar.El discurso del 4 de julio, pronunciado al pie del Monte Rushmore por el fanático en jefe, nos recuerda que, bajo el sistema capitalista, las cosas siempre pueden empeorar. Especialmente cuando el ocupante de la Casa Blanca parece tener cero límites cuando se trata de comentarios, posiciones y acciones extravagante ofensivas y médicamente peligrosas.Pueblos indígenas manifiestan en contra de Trump, 3 de julio, cerca de Monte Rushmore.Como jefe civil en el sector privado, Trump probablemente sería aún más sincero. Uno puede imaginarlo con los carteles, vistos desde su elección, que dicen: “Soy racista y estoy orgulloso de ello”. No es difícil imaginarlo llevando una bandera confederada, luciendo una esvástica o proclamando abiertamente el orgullo fascista una vez que deja el cargo público (¡cuanto antes, mejor!).Como presidente de los Estados Unidos, tiene que ocultar su mensaje en retórica que defiende la “democracia”.Los luchadores por la libertad que se rebelan en las calles están derribando, y empujando al estado a derribar, monumentos a los propietarios de personas esclavizadas y a los asesinos de pueblos indígenas. Para castigarlos por sus acciones heroicas, Trump se jactó de que impondría una pena de prisión de 10 años.Para Trump y sus animadores secuaces, la justa rebelión en las calles representa “la definición misma del totalitarismo”. El presidente llegó incluso a llamarlo “un nuevo fascismo de extrema izquierda que exige lealtad absoluta”. Esto convierte la realidad en su cabeza.Los matones y policías de la supremacía blanca han herido a muchos manifestantes, algunos fatalmente. Sin embargo, son activistas antirracistas arrestados desde el linchamiento de George Floyd quienes han sido acusados de delitos graves, y algunos enfrentan décadas o incluso cadena perpetua.¿Qué es el monte Rushmore?Dakota del Sur fue anexionada por los Estados Unidos en 1803 como parte de la Compra de Luisiana. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos luego permitió asentamientos allí, rompiendo los tratados anteriores hechos con la Nación Indígena Lakota. El teniente coronel estadounidense George Custer invadió las Black Hills en 1874, violando el Tratado de Fort Laramie de 1868 que había dejado a las Black Hills sin terminar con los Lakota, para quienes las colinas son sagradas.Después de que Custer descubriera el oro, los mineros blancos que buscaban fortuna invadieron las Colinas. En 1889, Dakota del Norte y Dakota del Sur se convirtieron en los estados 39 y 40. Como todos los 50 estados, desde Alaska y Hawai hasta Nueva Inglaterra, Dakota del Sur es tierra robada a la población indígena.Tȟuŋkášila Šákpe (“Los seis abuelos”) o Igmútȟaŋka Pahá (“Montaña Cougar”) para los Lakota, la montaña fue renombrada después de Charles Rushmore, un rico hombre de negocios que frecuentaba el área en viajes de caza y prospección en la década de 1890. La profanación masiva comenzó en 1927 con la eliminación de grandes cantidades de granito para crear los bustos familiares de los cuatro presidentes estadounidenses. Este trabajo tomó 17 años y costó casi $1 millón, una considerable suma de dólares de impuestos en 1944.El escultor, Gutzon Borglum, era miembro del KKK, quien anteriormente ayudó a construir el enorme monumento confederado en Stone Mountain, Lincoln, hijo de Borglum, Lincoln, quien completó Rushmore después de la muerte de su padre, imaginó más profanación al poner en piedra la Declaración de Independencia, la Constitución, la compra de Luisiana y el Tratado del Canal de Panamá.¿De quién son las cabezas que profanan las Black Hills?Los presidentes representados, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln y Theodore Roosevelt, representan varias etapas en el desarrollo del imperio imperialista de Estados Unidos. Los dos llamados “padres fundadores” eran ricos miembros de la esclavocracia con vastas extensiones de tierra. Lincoln, retratado como el líder benevolente que terminó con la esclavitud por sí solo, esencialmente liberó a los estados esclavistas para la expansión capitalista.Roosevelt, según la versión de la historia de Trump, “llevó a los famosos Rough Riders a derrotar al enemigo en San Juan Hill”. Esta etapa imperialista del desarrollo capitalista coincide con la toma estadounidense de las colonias controladas por españoles en 1898; Puerto Rico sigue siendo una colonia empobrecida de los EE. UU. Pero San Juan Hill está en territorio liberado, la Cuba socialista, algo que mil Monte Rushmores nunca pueden borrar.La nostalgia de Trump por los monumentos que caen recuerda al gobernador de Alabama, George Wallace, que declaró en 1963: “Segregación ahora, segregación mañana y segregación para siempre”.No sabemos cuánto tiempo la gigantesca y lucrativa trampa turística continuará intacta, con suerte no mucho más. Los valientes defensores de los tratados indígenas pudieron sostener la manifestación de odio fascista de Trump durante varias horas.Esperamos con ansias el día en que todos y cada uno de los monumentos a la esclavocracia y el genocidio sean derribados y destruidos. Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero se compromete a erradicar, no solo estas odiadas banderas y estatuas, sino cada rastro del sistema capitalista que generó los crímenes contra la humanidad que simbolizan estos objetos.La pandilla fascista reunida en el Monte Rushmore es peligrosa, al igual que la retórica que la unió: la amenaza debe tomarse en serio.¡Pero tenemos esperanza! Como el movimiento monumental que aún se desarrolla nos ha recordado, nada está escrito en piedra.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

However, he said his officers are aware of the situation.“We are remaining vigilant,” Rangel wrote. “As always we are encouraging community members to remain vigilant and report illegal or suspicious activity to police immediately.”In an email to TCU 360, Minister to the University Angela Kaufman emphasized that the university accepts students from all backgrounds and faiths.“We want every single member of our community to believe wholeheartedly that this is a campus where they are welcomed and valued for who they are and not in spite of it,” Kaufman wrote.Her sentiments echo some of the internet’s responses to the flyers.

President “insulted” by talk of bribes

first_imgNews December 23, 2015 – Updated on March 8, 2016 President “insulted” by talk of bribes SenegalAfrica The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa RSF asks Senegal to amend its new press law Organisation Follow the news on Senegal Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information November 27, 2020 Find out more News to go further Reports RSF decries exceptional press freedom violations in Senegal Photo: Mamadou Mansour Diop, www.leral.net March 5, 2021 Find out more RSF_en January 8, 2021 Find out more Surprised by the summons of four D-Média group executives and journalists in the past few days in Senegal, which has reputation for respecting media freedom and pluralism, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reminds the authorities that the media must be free to cover all stories, including corruption allegations.Are some subjects off limits in Senegal? The usually relaxed climate for journalists has become much more tense since a recent report in the French daily Le Monde about the alleged use of bribes for illegal political funding. Discussion of these allegations on D-Média outlets did not please the authorities, who are accusing them of “insulting the president.”The first to be arrested was D-Média CEO Massamba Mbaye, whose outlets include the daily newspaper La Tribune, Sen TV and Radio Zik FM. The police interrogated him at length on 19 December and summoned him for further questioning on 21 December.Three of Mbaye’s employees – Sen TV head of programming Ndèye Astou Guèye, presenter Mamadou Mansour Diop and reporter Pape Bess Diba – were also questioned on 21 December and were told to remain available to the judicial authorities.The arrests were prompted by discussions on Sen TV and Zik FM on 18 December of a Le Monde report that Lamine Diack, the Senegalese former president of the International Association of Athletics Federations, confessed to a Senegalese anti corruption body that he solicited bribes from Russians officials and used the money to fund opposition election campaigns in Senegal in 2009 and 2012. The police raided Sen TV on 19 December and asked to seize the recordings of all the programmes broadcast between 2 pm and 5 pm the previous day. They also said they wanted to arrest Diop for “prejudicial comments insulting the president.”“We are not used to such authoritarian measures in Senegal, measures that send a threatening message to all the media and encourage self-censorship,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.“The charges of insulting the president are out of all proportion. The questions posed by the journalists were, it is true, disconcerting but must be regarded as part and parcel of a legitimate public debate. We call for the withdrawal of all the charges against them so that they can continue to cover developments freely.”Media freedom violations directly affecting journalists have been relatively infrequent in recent years in Senegal. But the authorities keep a close rein on independent media and parliament continues to refuse to approve a bill decriminalizing media offences that has sat in drawer for the past five years.Senegal is ranked 71st out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Robin Kelley, an American historian, interviewed black community members and collected photographs and memorabilia for the documentary, which make up the bulk of the collection. Many of these materials date from the early 20th century, and shed light on a less-visible period in African-American life prior to the second Great Migration.The collection tells the stories and struggles of black citizens who either migrated to or grew up in Pasadena.The collection includes more than 3,000 pages of materials and 400 historic photographs that have been re-housed and processed according to professional archival standards.

Coronavirus live updates: Pandemic is ‘accelerating,’ WHO warns

first_imgHere’s the latest on the developing situation Monday. All times Eastern:1:46 p.m.: North Carolina schools closed through May 15All public K-12 schools in North Carolina will be closed until May 15, Gov. Roy Cooper said Monday.The governor said he arrived at this date by looking at guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and public health officials. The order would be adjusted if guidance changes, he said.Businessman donates laptops to single mom whose six kids need homeschooling amid coronavirus pandemicCooper is also mandating the closure of gyms, movie theaters and other similar businesses as soon as possible. He said hair salons, nail salons and barber shops should close by 5 p.m. Wednesday “because of their inability to conduct social distancing.”12:08 p.m.: The pandemic is ‘accelerating’The coronavirus “pandemic is accelerating,” World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned Monday.Almost every country in the world has reported cases, he announced in a Geneva press conference.“It took 67 days from the first reported case to reach the first 100,000 cases. Eleven days for the second 100,000 and just four days for the third 100,000,” he said.11:39 a.m.: Minnesota governor to self-quarantineMinnesota Gov. Tim Walz said Monday morning he will self-quarantine after a member of his security detail tested positive for the coronavirus on Sunday night.“I’m using this as an opportunity to lead by example,” Walz said in a statement. “Though I’m feeling healthy and not showing any symptoms, I’m going to work from home and model the protocol we are asking all Minnesotans to follow.”11:16 a.m.: Diagnosed cases soar to over 20,000 in New YorkIn New York state, where diagnosed coronavirus cases have soared to over 20,000, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said testing is also on the rise, with 16,000 tests now conducted per day.About 25% of testing nationwide is now in New York state, Cuomo said Monday.Cuomo on Monday issued an emergency order to all hospitals requiring them to increase capacity by 50%, with a goal of increasing capacity by 100%. Four facilities in the state are being converted into hospitals.Of those diagnosed in New York, 13% are hospitalized, the governor said. New York state has reported 157 deaths.“We were not ready to deal with this. And other situations will happen,” Cuomo said. “Let’s at least learn from this to be prepared for the next situation, as dramatic as this one has been.”Cuomo once again got personal at Monday’s news conference, saying a silver lining he’s gained during the pandemic is the “beautiful gift” of more time with his daughter.10:50 a.m.: Amy Klobuchar’s husband tests positive for coronavirusFormer Democratic presidential candidate and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar says her husband, John Bessler, received positive coronavirus test results Monday morning.Bessler suffered a bad cough, including coughing up blood, and now has pneumonia and is on oxygen but not a ventilator, Klobuchar said in a statement.“He is exhausted and sick,” she said.“John and I have been in different places for the last two weeks and I am outside the 14-day period for getting sick, my doctor has advised me to not get a test,” Klobuchar said. “As everyone is aware, there are test shortages for people who need them everywhere and I don’t qualify to get one under any standard.”“I love my husband so very much and not being able to be there at the hospital by his side is one of the hardest things about this disease,” she wrote. “I hope he will be home soon. I know so many Americans are going through this and so much worse right now. So I hope and pray for you, just as I hope you will do for my husband. Meanwhile I am working in the Senate to get help to the American people.” 10:30 a.m.: Stay-at-home advisory issued in MassachusettsA stay-at-home advisory has been issued in Massachusetts, urging residents to avoid unnecessary travel from Tuesday until April 7.Also beginning Tuesday, all “non-essential” businesses in Massachusetts will be closed, though Gov. Charlie Baker encouraged restaurants to continue to offer food for take-out and delivery.9:20 a.m. New Jersey testing site reaches capacity before it opensIn northern New Jersey, hit hard by the outbreak, a testing site at Bergen County Community College reached capacity even before it opened Monday morning, reported ABC New York station WABC-TV.8:39 a.m. One doctor’s plea for suppliesA Massachusetts emergency room doctor, who made a sharp-worded appeal on Facebook for the need for protective gear, told ABC News he’s since received a number of donated supplies. “Since that post went out, people have been showing up in our ER, donating whatever they have, people have been making masks,” Dr. Josh Lerner, who works at the Leominster campus of UMass Memorial HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital, said in an interview Monday on Good Morning America.“People are dropping off food, any type of personal protective equipment. Painters, contractors are giving us their supplies. A neighbor of mine dropped off a box of N95 masks this morning, left it on my porch,” Lerner continued. “So we are being heard by the American people.”But Lerner said it’s unclear how long the supplies will last as his emergency room starts to see an influx in acute cases of patients sickened with the novel coronavirus disease. “I think something to keep in mind is that, for any one patient, there are multiple health care workers who are at the bedside,” he said. “We could be talking about many, many supplies being used at any one time at the bedside. And so, at this moment, I don’t know how many more days of supplies we have, but we are sort of using them as judiciously as possible.” Lerner called on the U.S. government as well as leaders at the local, state and federal levels to “work together” rather than “debate with one another.” “We as an entire nation need to come together to fight this,” he said.7:48 a.m. Spain reports 462 deaths in past 24 hoursSpain’s health ministry on Monday reported 462 deaths from the novel coronavirus in the past 24 hours. The country’s death toll from COVID-19 has now topped 2,000. Spain has the third-highest number of recorded deaths in the outbreak, following China and Italy. With nearly 30,000 diagnosed cases, Spain is behind the United States and Italy in the highest national total outside China.5:39 a.m. Wuhan, China, reports no new cases for five straight daysThe Chinese city of Wuhan, the original epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak, has reported no new confirmed cases for the past five days.The city is still considered a high-risk zone but signs of life are reappearing on the streets as authorities begin to relax some of the strict measures that were put in place. Road checkpoints are being removed and some private vehicles have returned to the streets. The city’s subway system remains shut down but has begun trial runs as health workers disinfect the subway cars and stations.City leaders met Monday to discuss scheduling the resumption of work and production. Monday marks two months since Chinese authorities placed Wuhan on lockdown as the virus spread like wildfire throughout the city and the greater Hubei province.“The meeting emphasized the need to make overall plans to restore economic and social order, and actively and steadily promote orderly resumption of work and production,” the Wuhan government said in a statement Monday. “It is necessary to speed up the resumption of production and industrial enterprises, the return of stores and supermarkets as soon as possible, the orderly restoration of public transportation, the safe and orderly movement of personnel, and the guarantee of resumption of production and market.”4:09 a.m. Florida closes all state parksFlorida is closing all of its state parks to the public due to the coronavirus crisis.At the direction of the governor and to successfully uphold social distancing guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection said it will close all state parks to the public, effective Monday. The Sunshine State is home to nearly 200 state parks and trails.A notice on the Florida State Parks website said the Department of Environmental Protection “has taken many measures to continue providing resource recreation at our state parks during this time, such as limiting operating hours and reducing visitor capacity at parks with high visitation.”“Unfortunately,” the notice continued, “this has not resulted in the reductions needed to best protect public health and safety as Florida continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.”There are more than 1,000 diagnosed cases of the novel coronavirus in Florida, and at least 13 of those patients have died, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Systems Science and Engineering.3:42 a.m. U.S. Secret Service employee tests positiveA U.S. Secret Service employee is in quarantine after testing positive for the novel coronavirus, the agency confirmed in a statement late Sunday night.“The Secret Service has conducted a comprehensive contact trace assessment and determined that the employee has not had contact with any Secret Service employee or protectee for nearly three weeks,” the agency said.Further information about the employee’s identity was not provided due to privacy considerations.3:00 a.m. Japan to begin quarantining all visitors from the USJapanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced Monday that his country will require a 14-day quarantine to all visitors from the United States amid an escalating number of coronavirus infections around the globe.The quarantine requirement includes Japanese and American citizens and will go into effect Thursday until the end of April. The move comes after Japan raised its travel advisory for the United States, urging Japanese citizens not to make nonessential trips to the nation.Abe said the new requirement is in line with containment measures taken by other countries, including the United States, which has reported a surge in new COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.Japan appears to have successfully slowed the spread of the virus on its soil, with just 1,101 diagnosed cases as of Monday, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Systems Science and Engineering. Still, Abe said a decision to postpone the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, slated to kick off on July 24, “may become inevitable” if the pandemic makes it impossible to hold the event safety.The International Olympic Committee’s executive board has announced a plan to analyze the situation over the next few weeks and make a decision that could include the option to postpone, although the board emphasized that it has no current plans to outright cancel the games. A number of Olympic athletes have called on organizers to postpone or cancel the games due to the pandemic.“If it is difficult to hold in a complete way, a decision of postponement would be unavoidable,” Japan’s prime minister said at a press conference Monday.  Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Notes on the ringing and the breeding distribution of the giant petrel Macronectes giganteus

first_imgOf approximately 800 Giant Petrel chicks banded at F.I.D.S. bases in 1956, fourteen were recovered later in the year from Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The results compare with similar records from A.N.A.R.E. sources and suggest that the young birds disperse northward and eastward on leaving the nest. The recorded limits of the breeding range are reviewed and the existence of a colony below the Antarctic Circle is reported.last_img
