Save this picture!© Filip DujardinThe home expresses its character through the use of materials. It is an attempt to tell a coherent tale with a minimum of materials. Coherence is obtained by assigning each material its well-determined place. Save this picture!© Filip DujardinEvery material has its place as one piece of a puzzle: tiles, steel, wood outside, wood inside, concrete, natural stone. This coherence is further present in the tactile hierarchy. One will refrain from touching cold materials. The open carpentry is solid wood, framed in steel. Switches are fixed to wooden skirting boards. Feet will always walk on wooden floors or flashed natural stone. Even though one would be reluctant to touch concrete, here the tactility is of a more visual nature. By polishing it, the result will be a soft, velveteen effect, emphasized all the more in the evenings by artificial light. The outside will have the sharp, edgy scale effect obtained by the superposition of the tiles. The shape of the building as a whole will be jagged, unruly. Only by looking at it from closer-up the entrance is revealed as framed in wood.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinProject gallerySee allShow lessWinners of Tenancingo Square Competition Addressing Human Trafficking AnnouncedArchitecture NewsShortlist Revealed for World Architecture Festival Awards 2017Architecture News Share CopyAbout this officeALT ArchitectuurOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGhentBelgiumPublished on July 07, 2017Cite: “House of an Architect L-D / ALT architectuur” 07 Jul 2017.

In 1948 the United Automobile Workers became the first union in the U.S. to win cost-of-living allowance (COLA) language, also known as an escalator clause.General Motors agreed to raise workers’ pay in sync with inflation. UAW contracts with Ford, Chrysler (now FCA) and GM all had COLA until it was taken away during the 2009 GM and Chrysler bankruptcies.Santa Cruz police arrest striking grad students, Feb. 12.A militant, determined group of UAW members have launched a new fight for COLA. Not traditional autoworkers, they are graduate student teaching employees at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). Nevertheless, they are demanding a traditional escalator clause to offset the high cost of living in Santa Cruz.Graduate student workers throughout the University of California system are represented by UAW LOCAL 2865. They are under a master contract ratified by 58 percent of the members statewide last year, but rejected by a majority of members at UCSC. Despite a no-strike clause in their contract, in December UCSC grad students began a “grading strike” to push for COLA.Because of the no-strike language and because the UAW International did not authorize the strike, it’s considered a wildcat.Over 1,400 UCSC undergraduate students signed a statement of support for the graduate student teachers, even though that has meant they haven’t received grades for the last semester. Roughly the same number of UCSC faculty have also signed on in solidarity with the strike. The COLA campaign has spread to several other UC campuses.The grad students escalated the strike into a full teaching strike on Feb. 10. They held demonstrations blocking busy intersections near campus, and did the same on Feb. 12. At least 17 strikers and supporters have been arrested.The university is taking a hard line, even threatening international students taking part in the strike with deportation and suspending students from class. This has only served to further infuriate members of Local 2865 at Santa Cruz and around the state.Mumia Abu-Jamal spoke to the strikers on Feb. 16. He was accepted into the graduate Ph.D. program at UCSC this semester, but just became aware of the strike. His message to the students was: “I read Robin D.G. Kelly’s ‘Hammer and Hoe’ on the history of Black workers in Alabama in the 1930s who were trying to unionize. The landowners unleashed the violence of the state, including help from the KKK, to stop this movement. It was not unlike what is happening with the students in California. State violence is state violence. Class is class. The students’ movement can only grow.”To learn more and to support the strike, visit @payusmoreucsc on Twitter.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Nikki Spellmanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nikki-spellman/ + posts Men’s tennis continues sweep streak with win over SMU printFollowing three straight losses, No. 11 TCU men’s tennis is in desperate need of a win. The Horned Frogs travel to the ITA Indoor National Championships in Madison, Wisconsin, this week after a 6-0 loss to No. 5 UNC.The losses were much closer than the scoreboard indicated, as three of the five completed matches against UNC involved either a third set or a tiebreaker. The competition doesn’t get any easier, though. USC, the top-ranked team in the ITA rankings, is up next for the Frogs. The Horned Frogs are looking to redeem themselves in this year’s tournament after losing in the quarterfinals last year to UNC, 4-3. The Trojans are 5-1 in 2020, boasting a lineup of seven ranked singles players and four ranked doubles teams. USC also has a major singles weapon in Daniel Cukierman, the No. 1 player in the country. USC suffered its first loss of the season on Sunday at No. 2 Ohio State, making the team 2-1 against teams in the tournament this weekend. TCU has a star-studded lineup that has the potential to compete with the Trojans with five ranked singles players: No. 55 Alastair Gray, No. 74 Jacob Fearnley, No. 122 Tadeas Paroulek and No. 125 Luc Fomba. TCU also boasts the No. 34 ranked doubles pairing of Gray and Fearnley. For the first time in program history, this will be the Horned Frogs’ second-consecutive match against a No. 1 ranked opponent. TCU has yet to gain a win over a No. 1 ranked opponent in the David Roditi era. USC leads the all-time series against TCU, 5-4; however, TCU holds a record of 3-0 against the Trojans since Roditi became head coach in the 2010 season. If TCU wins in the first round, they will take on either Stanford or NC State in the quarterfinals.The complete bracket can be viewed below: ITA Indoor Championship Tournament Bracket.

Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan IraqMiddle East – North Africa to go further Organisation Help by sharing this information IraqMiddle East – North Africa – Download the report :Reporters Without Borders called today for the reopening of the enquiry into who was really responsible for the US Army’s “criminal negligence” in shooting at the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad on 8 April 2003 and causing the death of two journalists – Ukrainian cameramen Taras Protsyuk (of Reuters news agency) and Spaniard José Couso (of the Spanish TV station Telecinco).The call came in a report of the press freedom organisation’s own in-depth investigation of the incident, which gathered evidence from journalists in the hotel at the time, from others “embedded” with US Army units and from the US military soldiers and officers directly involved.The report said US officials at first lied about what happened and then, in an official statement four months later, exonerated the US Army from any mistake or error of judgement. The report provides only some of the truth about the incident, which needs to be further investigated to establish exactly who was responsible.Pentagon spokespersons said right from the start that an M1 Abrams tank opened fire on the hotel in legitimate self-defence in response to “enemy fire” coming from the hotel or the area around it. This line was maintained and emphasised at the highest official level in the days that followed.Sgt. Shawn Gibson, the 3rd Infantry Division (3ID) tank gunner who fired the fatal shot, and his immediate superior, Capt. Philip Wolford, who authorised it, denied they had fired because of shooting from the hotel. They said the 4-64 Armor Company of the 3ID’s 2nd Brigade, which was stationed on the Al-Jumhuriya Bridge soon after US troops entered Baghdad, was in fact seeking to neutralise an Iraqi “spotter” monitoring and reporting on US military activity.Some of this data caused the US Army to change its line slightly in its official report released on 12 August 2003. It did not speak of direct shooting but of an “enemy hunter/killer team” which required a response in legitimate self-defence. This too was a lie – by omission.By focusing only on the rules of combat, the US authorities have remained silent about the real cause of the tragedy. The Reporters Without Borders investigation found that the soldiers in the field were never told the hotel was full of journalists.The US shelling of the hotel was not a deliberate attack on journalists and the media. It was the result of criminal negligence.At the bottom level, Capt. Wolford and Sgt. Gibson reacted as soldiers in a battle situation. They directly caused the death of the journalists and wounded three others, but should not really be held responsible because they did not have information that would have made them aware of the consequences of firing at the hotel.Their immediate superiors – battalion commander Lt. Col. Philip DeCamp and brigade commander Col. David Perkins – also appear not to blame. Their reactions and the accounts of embedded journalists indicate they too had not been properly informed by their own superiors.At a higher level, the headquarters of 3ID commander Gen. Buford Blount bears a heavy responsibility. The Division’s command had access to information from the Pentagon, from the US Central Command Doha base (in Qatar) and from the media. It is inconceivable that the massive presence of journalists at the hotel for three weeks prior to the shelling, which was known by any TV viewer and by the Pentagon itself, could have passed unnoticed. Yet this presence was never mentioned to the troops in the field or marked on the maps used by artillery support soldiers. The question is whether this information was withheld deliberately, out of contempt or through negligence. RSF_en News December 28, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Iraq At the top level, the US government must bear some of the responsibility. Not just because it is the government and has supreme authority over its army in the field, but also because its top leaders several times made false statements about the incident. They also talked regularly about the dangers journalists faced in Iraq. White House spokesman Ari Fleischer stressed on 28 February the Pentagon’s advice to the media to pull their journalists out of Baghdad before the war began. Asked whether this was a veiled threat to “non-embedded” reporters, he said: “If the military says something, I strongly urge all journalists to heed it. It is in your own interests, and your family’s interests. And I mean that.” The argument that journalists had been warned of the danger reappeared in the Army’s 12 August report. This amounted to creating two kinds of journalists – those who were “embedded” and so able to report on the fighting while under the protection of US forces and those who were advised to leave the war zone or face being ignored.The Pentagon thereby refused to accept any responsibility for the death of the two journalists.The Reporters Without Borders investigation was carried out by French journalist Jean-Paul Mari, with help from the French weekly magazine Le Nouvel Observateur, which Reporters Without Borders warmly thanks.- Download the report : RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” Related documents Two murders and a liePDF – 3.58 MB Reports Following its investigation of the US Army’s firing at the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad on 8 April 2003, Reporters Without Borders called for the reopening of the enquiry into who was really responsible for the US Army’s “criminal negligence”.

The Division Bench of Justice Manmohan and Justice Sanjeev Narula further issued fresh notices to the Delhi Minorities Commission, the Delhi Government, and Mr Zafarul Islam Khan himself. In today’s proceedings, Delhi Government submitted status report wherein it was stated that the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi has directed the Administrative Department concerned to initiate action as per provision of Section 4 of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act against Zafarul Islam Khan. Citing the seriousness of the matter, the Lieutenant Governor also informed Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that the content of Khan’s post prima facie appear to have the potential of disturbing communal harmony in the city. In the last hearing, the Delhi High Court had noted that any decision to remove Zafarul Islam Khan from the position of the Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission has to be taken by the Delhi Government and the court cannot order any such removal even before any opinion has been formed by the government. The Division Bench of Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal had further observed that the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi has already taken steps in this regard by issuing a show cause notice to Zafarul Islam Khan on May 08. Although, the court did ask the concerned authorities to take the decision expeditiously as Zafarul Islam’s term as a Chairman will come to an end on July 14, post which this petition would become infructuous. The decision has come in a plea seeking immediate removal of Zafarul Islam Khan from the position of the Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission for allegedly making seditious and hateful speeches. The petition seeks removal of Zafarul Islam Khan under section 4(4)(f) of the Delhi Minorities Commission Act. The Petitioner claims that the Zafarul Islam gave a direct threat of inciting a foreign attack on India by the words allegedly quoted by him in his Facebook post. This, as per the Petitioner, has brought about contempt, hatred and disrespect towards the sovereignty of India. The continuance of Zafarul Islam as a Chairman despite registration of the FIR, the Petitioner claims, maligns the image of the Minorities Commission in the eyes of the international community. ‘a bare perusal of the aforesaid public statement made by Zafarul Islam further categorically reveals that he has deliberately and intentionally promoted enmity between different groups on the ground of religion and has done acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony. By using derogatory language against the majority community, Zafarul Islam has further promoted disharmony, feeling of enmity, hatred and ill-will between two groups, which is likely to disturb the public tranquillity and is further likely to cause fear or alarm or a feeling of insecurity amongst members of different religious groups’, the petition states. The Petitioner also submits that the Delhi Police Special Cell has filed an FIR dated 02.05.2020 against Zafarul Islam under Section 124A and 153A IPC for his alleged hateful comment and for allegedly promoting feelings of hatred between different groups on the grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence and language. The Petitioner further argues that: ‘The right of freedom of speech and expression cannot be exercised by jeopardizing public law and order. Zafarul Islam has tried to provoke a particular community to resort to violence against the majority community of India.’ In light of these submissions, the Petitioner has asked the court to issue a direction to the Delhi Government, asking it to immediately remove Zafarul Islam Khan from the position of Chairman of the Delhi Minorities Commission.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
