Initially, Casa Rosario was configured by circulations in the open air that connected the different spaces; the living room, the dining room, the kitchen, the bathroom and the bedrooms. We read those exterior circulations as passages accompanied by vegetation, as well as passages fused with their environment, with a role to connect the interior with the exterior.Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar HernándezThe context of vegetation that surrounds Casa Rosario is kept as a reference with an emphasis on the visual flows leading to the canopies of the trees and the magenta flowers of the bougainvillea. The exterior passages aim to have a constant relationship with each space, to discover by walking, to perceive while passing by, paths leading up to surprises.Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar HernándezThe topography is playing a very interesting role in terms of the configuration of the spaces, creating multiple atmospheres and different experiences of space by placing the viewer on different levels.Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar HernándezCasa Rosario is composed of semi-obsolete cubes that are connected with each other by open-air circulations. The house for the Hernández family is understood as a series of cubes rooted in the topography as if the foundations were to arise and emanate from the earth. Each element generates its own identity due to the difference of height between them, no space has a more central role than the other, all spaces are conceived as a whole. Each body is linked to the others with central openings that expand towards the main courtyard, creating a visual communication between the areas.Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar HernándezWe consider the projection of shadows as protection for the viewer as they walk through the contained passages. We believe that it is not necessary to resort to a cover or a wall from floor to ceiling of a hermetic type in order to contain or embrace, it is enough with a barrier of vegetation or a shadow projection to define the space.Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar HernándezIn each of our projects, light plays a fundamental role. We like to think that we paint with light, having space as a blank canvas on which we draw with light and shadow. Casa Rosario invites to step into the light that enters from the exterior passages through the openings, reflected and projected on each of the walls.Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar HernándezProject gallerySee allShow lessVerona Penthouse / Bricolo FalsarellaSelected ProjectsWinning Designs for Senegal Peace Pavilion, Judged by Kengo KumaArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: DOSA STUDIO, Rojkind Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project Casa Rosario / DOSA STUDIO + Rojkind Arquitectos Save this picture!© Zaickz Moz & Oscar Hernández+ 21Curated by Clara Ott Sharelast_img read more

As Black churches burn, where are the feds?

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Pastor Bobby Jones outside torched church in Warrenville, S.C.The capitalist state in the U.S. coexists cosily with right-wing terrorists. This vile fact has once again been confirmed in the aftermath of the murder spree by racist terrorist Dylann Roof.As of June 29, six Black churches in the South have either been destroyed or suffered severe damage from fires since Charleston. At least three are confirmed to have been caused by arson, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The loss to the people of these communities comes to hundreds of thousands of dollars.Worse, the torchings are a threat of further violence to a people whose painful history at the hands of white exploiters still resonates so strongly.The first burning deemed by fire marshals to be arson destroyed the College Hills Seventh Day Adventist Church in Knoxville, Tenn., on June 22. The Knoxville fire department said the arsonist set multiple fires on the church’s property. The church’s van was also burned.The very next day, a fire in the sanctuary of God’s Power Church of Christ in Macon, Ga., was also blamed on arson.And the day after that, a fire was deliberately set at the Briar Creek Baptist Church in Charlotte, N.C., that destroyed an education wing meant to house a summer program for children. The gymnasium and sanctuary burned, causing an estimated $250,000 in damage.That same week, three other Southern Black churches — in Tennessee, Florida and South Carolina — also suffered fires, although two may have had natural causes. Investigations are continuing.After what happened in Charleston, S.C., there can be little doubt that the arson fires were set by white supremacists, whose outpourings of hate in print and on the Internet call again and again for violence against people of color, using at best flimsily disguised language and at worst the vilest and most degrading terms.One might think that mass murder of the type that happened in Charleston would immediately lead to arrests of those advocating race war against Black people. We have seen many examples in recent years of elaborate sting operations set up by the FBI and local police authorities to ensnare Black militants on charges of plotting terrorist acts — which government agents had encouraged and facilitated.But just as with the murders of the three civil rights workers in 1964 — James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner — by members of the Ku Klux Klan, the authorities have not intervened to stop such attacks, even though it is logical to assume that, in this day and age of wide surveillance, they have knowledge of them.Such action by the state, however, would not fit in with its primary purpose — which is to facilitate the extraction of capitalist profits from the labor of millions of workers by protecting the status quo. And this status quo is becoming increasingly unbearable for millions, as the gap grows between the very rich and the rest of us. So the state becomes increasingly draconian, with mass incarceration, especially of Black and Brown people, and the training and equipping of local police forces for military-style combat — against the oppressed, not the racist terrorists.There is another aftermath of Charleston, however. It is the encouraging sight of Black and white together demanding the Confederate flag and statues be removed. Southern whites are coming into the streets to stand with their Black neighbors, friends and co-workers. Unlike the racists, who mostly remain in the shadows while carrying out their fascistic acts, the Black and white people fighting racism are visible and vocal — and inspiring others with their courage.Courage is something glaringly lacking in the bigots. Who but a coward would choose a Black church to carry out a murderous rampage? Roof knew no one there would be armed. And those who torched other Black churches did so in the dead of night.But it is not just personal courage that these fascist elements lack. Their whole social outlook is based on craven capitulation to the capitalist ruling class. They fulminate against those who are the most oppressed, blaming them for all the ills of society — while doing the dirty work for those who lord it over the vast majority.last_img read more

China Purchases of US Ag Products Help Boost Market Prices

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News China Purchases of US Ag Products Help Boost Market Prices SHARE By NAFB News Service – Jan 31, 2021 SHARE New trade data from the U.S. Census Bureau shows China purchased a potential new record of U.S. agricultural products in 2020, according to American Farm Bureau Federation Chief Economist John Newton.“For calendar year 2020, China bought slightly more than $27 billion worth of U.S. agricultural products, which is likely a new record high in terms of exports to China.”Newton says China has already made large purchases of U.S. corn and soybeans in the 2021 marketing year.“China’s been a very big player in the corn and soybean markets this year. So far, they’ve bought nearly six million metric tons of corn, they’re on the books for more than 11 million metric tons of corn to purchase from the United States, which would be a record. On the soybean side, we’ve seen China buy more than 31 million metric tons of soybeans already, and they still have on the books nearly four million metric tons, so they’ve been a big player in the corn and soybean markets this year.”Newton says the increased trade with China has bolstered market prices for corn and soybeans in the United States.“I think what we’ve seen is since China’s been such a heavy player in the market, it’s helped to reduce our stockpiles this year and as a result we’ve seen prices move sharply higher in the last few months. Corn is now sitting at around $5.30, soybeans sitting around $13.50, and that’s up 50-60 percent from where we were back in early August. And a lot of that is on the back of strong trade and export demand.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleOil Industry Seeking Unusual Alliance in Farm CountryNext articleThe Hoosier Ag Today Podcast for February 1st, 2021 NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter China Purchases of US Ag Products Help Boost Market Priceslast_img read more

OPINION: Why #BeingMinorityatTCU stories should encourage change

first_imgFacebook Twitter Jocelyn Sitton The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Jocelyn Sitton Twitter Jocelyn Sitton Jocelyn Sitton printI came to Texas Christian University from a relatively small town between San Antonio and Austin called Seguin, Texas. The majority of Seguin’s population is Hispanic or Latino, as was the high school that I attended, and most of my friends back home are Hispanic. Now contrast that with our student body at TCU, which is approximately 75 percent Caucasian— it would be an understatement to say that was a bit of a culture shock to me. In fact, I clearly remember touring the campus for the first time and saying to my dad, “Man, this place is really white.”Now, I am by no means implying that there is anything inherently wrong with a student body that is primarily white, just as I had no problem living in a hometown that was mostly Hispanic. But think about it this way: I am white, and I went through a bit of a culture shock when I arrived at TCU. I am not part of any minority, but rather part of the overwhelming majority, and the transition was still strange for me. So if it was difficult for me, then for many of my minority friends here on campus, dealing with this setting must be infinitely more difficult.The recent email sent out by our chancellor and the subsequent articles posted by TCU360, accessible here and here, discuss potential steps the administration is considering to make TCU a better place to live and work for students of color. These steps have garnered criticism from students who think that they’re unnecessary. Here’s my problem with that—the implication in disagreeing with the steps specified by the chancellor is that you think everything is fine, and that we should just leave things the way they are. I’ve heard things such as, “If [students of color at TCU] aren’t happy with the way things are, they should just leave.” Hearing a quote like this should a blatantly obvious warning sign that everything is not, in fact, fine.If you dig into the hashtag #BeingMinorityatTCU, which was trending the night after all this information came out, you will quickly realize that we have deep-rooted problems here on campus that need attention. The fact that students of color are being questioned by others who can’t believe they got accepted here solely on their academics? That’s a problem. The fact that students of color have cried or fallen into depression because they feel like they scare or intimidate those around them? That’s also a problem. The fact that any time students of color complain or protest against these injustices, they’re told to stop acting like victims and appreciate their very presence here? That’s another problem. All of the stories coming out as a result of this hashtag, and more, illustrate the need for action on our campus; yet there is serious pushback from students who either don’t support making life better for students of color or don’t believe doing so is necessary.I think the negative reactions surrounding our chancellor’s attempts to hear the opinions of students of color and to make life better for them goes back to a fundamental misunderstanding that has been illustrated on a broader scale by opponents of the Black Lives Matter movement. This is by no means implying that I am equating Black Lives Matter and their actions to what students of color at TCU are trying to accomplish, but there are some obvious parallels in the negative responses both groups have received. Opponents of BLM argue that all lives matter, and that we should focus on making life better for everyone. However, this argument is based on a fundamental untruth- that the lives of minorities are equally as good as the lives of the majority, or more specifically to Black Lives Matter, that African-Americans are already treated the same as Caucasians. But are they? If Terence Crutcher or Tamir Rice were still alive today, I feel confident that they would disagree. If Michael Brown or Keith Lamont Scott were still with us, I doubt they would think they received fair treatment. And on the TCU campus, I doubt any of the students of color being vocal about the injustices and judgement they’ve suffered feel they’re given an equal footing.And that’s really all the students who met with the chancellor about these issues are trying to accomplish—fair and equal treatment for themselves and any other students of color that live, work or study on campus. I don’t see anything that leads me to believe they want to vault themselves ahead of the majority of the campus, or use their status as a crutch to get what they want. They simply want to be treated the same as I am, and I think that’s something that we should all strive to achieve. I support every effort aimed at promoting equality both at Texas Christian University and worldwide, and I think that is something that we all have a moral and ethical obligation to do.Nicholas P.

Dryden Rail Trail project gets $1.5 million award

first_imgThe funds, which were awarded through the New York State Transportation Enhancement program, will be used primarily to construct a pedestrian bridge over Route 13 near the intersection of Route 366. The bridge is a vital part of the project and was the most challenging aspect of the project, a news release from Dryden Town Supervisor Jason Leifer said. The funding will also be used to finish three miles of trail surface with stone dust to ADA compliance. DRYDEN, N.Y. — The Town of Dryden has been awarded $1.5 million to aid the construction of the Dryden Rail Trail, a non-motorized path in the works that follows the abandoned Lehigh Valley rail corridor. The trail will link Dryden to Ithaca and Tompkins County, and pass through Varna, Etna and Freeville with a connection to the existing East Ithaca Recreation Way at the town line on Game Farm Road by following rail beds that were abandoned in the 1970s. The trail will also include the Jim Schug Trail and the Freeville Trail. Tagged: dryden, dryden rail trail, lehigh valley, rail corridor “This is great news,” Leifer said. Trail celebration The project is being led by the Rail Trail Task Force, made up of volunteers who were appointed in 2016 and is chaired by Bob Beck. Kelsey O’Connor is the managing editor for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @bykelseyoconnor. More by Kelsey O’Connor On May 11, there will be an event to celebrate the official opening of the first roughly three-mile section of the Dryden Rail Trail from Dryden to Freeville. The event is planned for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 11 at the pavilion on George Road and will include a fun run, raffle, activities, music and food. There will be parking in Freeville and Dryden, and people can hike or bike to the celebration and pack up free raffle tickets and stickers for kids along the way. Handicapped parking will be available on Old George Road. A shuttle will run from George Road to all parking areas in the afternoon to return people to their cars. Kelsey O’Connor Todd Bittner, who is a member of the task force and natural areas director at the Cornell Botanic Gardens, said in a news release, “The State grant funding is indicative of the broad community support behind the development of the rail trail, which will help reduce commuter generated carbon emissions, enhance access to nature, and stimulate tourism and the local economy.” Photo courtesy of Friends of Dryden Rail Trail Facebook. CORRECTION (8:30 a.m. April 26) — The registration fee for the fun run is $10, not $30 as the article previously indicated. For more information about the Dryden Rail Trail, visit the town’s website. A fun run starts at 9:30 a.m. at the trail kiosk on George Road. Registration is $10 and proceeds will go to the Dryden PTA. In case of inclement weather, activities will take place May 12 instead.

‘I just feel lucky and blessed’: State trooper delivers baby on side of highway after pulling parents over

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A North Carolina state trooper delivered a baby — instead of a ticket — to a couple he caught speeding on the highway Saturday night.Sgt. Brian Maynard was parked on the shoulder of U.S. Route 64 near Wake County when he saw a light-colored van speeding past him at 85 mph in a 70 mph zone, ABC Raleigh-Durham affiliate WTVD-TV reported.When Maynard approached the van, the father-to-be explained that his wife was in labor and the baby’s head was crowning.“I said, OK. Well, we’re going to do this right here, me and you,” Maynard told the panicked father.The 15-year police veteran contacted EMS before grabbing gloves and a blanket to assist the couple, he told WTVD.“It was interesting,” he said. “It was scary. I just tried to do the best that I could with the things I’ve seen on TV and things I had heard.”A father to an 11-year-old daughter himself, Maynard said he was “relieved” to help deliver a healthy baby girl, adding that the experience brought back memories from when his now-preteen was a newborn.“I just feel lucky and blessed — to have been at the right place at the right time,” he said.The police sergeant said bringing a baby into the world was an antidote for all the “death” he’s witnessed in his years working in law enforcement.“To be a part of the process that actually brings a life into this world is absolutely amazing,” he said.The parents, Jimmy and Laura Baker, are resting with their newborn at the WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, according to WTVD.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
