Drumnacraig Extension was completed in 2011 at a private house on the Fanad peninsula. The design turned a former garage on the North side of the existing cottage into a studio with a mezzanine level and added a new boatshed on the West. It is situated along the coast of Donegal with views to the East overlooking Lough Swilly and Malin Head. The extension’s shape was inspired by its location, set beneath sharp craigs and on land which undulates until it reaches the Lough.Save this picture!SectionThe new roof runs parallel to the existing, following the natural slope of the terrain. This integration into the landscape has been reiterated by cladding the walls and roof in Western Red Cedar. The presence of the all-in-one material identifies the new studio as a new structure, but also as an extension which is sympatheticto its context, in contrast to the existing cottage. The sloped roof meets a chimney which extends upwards similar to the adjacent pine trees and the craigs behind. It is a sculptural feature imitating a funnel on a ship, and the exterior is also clad in Red Western Cedar.Save this picture!© Paul McGuickenThe new mezzanine level in the studio has a roof light to extend the views to the sea and these views are framed again by a new bay window. Natural light pours through the expanse of glass to the east, the facade here has been cut at an angle to allow southern light gain while also providing a sheltered enclosure for the patio. More natural light is captured by the high mezzanine window which steals the last western light before the sun sets behind the craigs.Save this picture!ElevationThe new boatshed is found at the back of the dwelling. Similarly, the roof here also follows the slope of the terrain, the boatshed is then connected by a glass link block, which serves as a new entrance and sunroom to the existing cottage. This creates a sheltered southerlycourtyard.Save this picture!© Paul McGuickenProject gallerySee allShow lessCopenhagen Hospital Draws Competition Entries from Snøhetta, Mecanoo, & MoreArchitecture NewsBarcelona Commemorates 300 Years of Catalan Spirit With 7 Public InstallationsArchitecture News Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMacGabhann ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionHousesRefurbishmentIrelandPublished on June 30, 2014Cite: “Drumnacraig – Extension / MacGabhann Architects” 30 Jun 2014.

En cada parte de Palestina — desde Cisjordania y Jerusalén a la Palestina Ocupada desde 1948 — la fase más reciente de la resistencia a la ocupación y el racismo ha afectado a la población de colonos sionistas con miedo y aprensión.Abnegados jóvenes palestinos armados únicamente con cuchillos y determinación, le han dejado saber a la población de colonos que ya no pueden ocultarse en sus centros comerciales, sus modernos centros de la ciudad cenando al aire libre y con sus 24 horas de televisión por cable.La población de colonos israelíes se encuentra ahora en la misma posición psicológica que los amos de plantación en el Condado Southampton-Virginia en 1831 cuando Nat Turner encabezó allí una rebelión de esclavos.A pesar de más de $137 mil millones en ayuda militar y económica directa de EUA desde 1949, y con al menos $3.74 mil millones pagados en 2015 (Informe Washington sobre la Actualidad Oriente Medio de octubre 2015), el llamado “Estado de Israel” todavía no tiene respuesta para la resistencia y firmeza palestina.El avión de guerra Falcon F-16 de la Lockheed Martin no funciona en los callejones de Jerusalén. El tanque de batalla Merkava Mark IV, con su motor diesel MTU Friedrichshafen alemán no opera dentro de una estación de autobuses en Beersheva. Y los submarinos de clase Delfín que cargan misiles de crucero, construidos en Alemania no ofrecen ninguna protección a los colonos israelíes que nadan y toman el sol en las playas de Tel Aviv.El Monitor Euro Mediterráneo de Derechos Humanos acaba de publicar un informe titulado “Las ejecuciones arbitrarias de Israel y su sistema de violencia estructural”. Se documenta cómo Israel viola sistemáticamente la Convención de Ginebra y es culpable de crímenes de guerra. Por ejemplo: “El 23 de julio, las fuerzas israelíes mataron a Falah Hamdi Zamel Abumaria, de 53 años, de la aldea Beit Amr en Hebrón. Los soldados invadieron su casa para detener a su hijo, Muhammed; cuando dispararon al joven Abumaria se asustó y tiró un jarrón de cerámica a los soldados desde su balcón. Los soldados respondieron disparándole tres balas en el pecho”.Esto es el porqué jóvenes de 16 años atacan a colonos con cuchillos.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Instead, the most common way people are led into human trafficking is through manipulation of relationships, said Melissa Ice, founder of The Net. The Fort Worth-based organization works with people who have sexually exploited, as well as local refugee and homeless communities.“I think the important thing is to understand is how someone ends up there and why they get stuck and so much of it has to do with that hamster wheel of trauma and abuse,” Ice said. “Eventually, maybe you find your way out, but now that you’re out you don’t have any of the skills to cope with everything that has happened to you.”The Net was created to help create a supportive community for those who need it the most. The organization has helped create outreach programs for the local refugee and homeless communities in Fort Worth as well as victims of sexual-exploitation. Ice also said that vulnerable people are often preyed upon by traffickers.“Thirty-three percent of runaways within 48 hours will be approached by a trafficker, and that’s a Dallas Fort Worth statistic,” Ice said. “It’s very crazy because that means that a third of every girl who leaves home has a chance of encountering a trafficker.”In October 2019, the Fort Worth Police Department made an official unit for human-trafficking with a sergeant, two detectives, two officers, and one civilian. There are currently an estimated 313,000 victims of human trafficking in Texas according to a University of Texas at Austin study. The study also estimated that there are around 79,000 minors involved in sex trafficking in the state of Texas. Because of the issue’s prevalence in Texas, TCU students in a documentary class focused on human trafficking because of its relevance in Fort Worth. Students created the documentary, Worthy of More, by working alongside The Net.Human-trafficking is “recruitment, harboring, transporting, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, slavery or forced commercial sex acts.” H.R.3244 – 106th Congress (1999-2000): Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000“I think accessibility to technology, the increase in pornography consumption and its normalization all play a role,” Ice said on the high numbers of human trafficking. “The more you have people who demand these types of things then the more the supply is going to increase. It’s like simple economics.”In addition, Ice said 72% of online sex ads are actually underage girls. “The reality is most of the online sex that people are purchasing are from children, and in Texas, you cannot legally consent to sex until the age of 17,” Ice said.

His family fears he is being held by the pro-Russian separatists of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). RSF calls for his immediate release.

His mother last spoke to him on 2 June. Relatives who went to his apartment said it had been searched and his computer was missing. A formal investigation into his disappearance was opened on 8 June. His family and colleagues fear that he is being held and possibly tortured by members of the DPR’s “ministry of state security.” “Stanislav Aseyev’s situation is extremely worrying,” RSF said. “We hold the DPR’s self-proclaimed authorities responsible for his fate and for his safety. And we urge all of the region’s political actors, including the international organizations that have a presence there, to help obtain his immediate release.” Yehor Firsov, a former parliamentarian who is a friend of Aseyev’s, says he is being held by the pro-Russian separatists who control the Donetsk region. The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has said it knows where he is but has not provided any further information. As well as blogging about daily life in separatist-controlled eastern Ukraine, Aseyev works for several Ukrainian media such as Ukrainski Tijden, Ukrainska Pravda and Dzerkalo Tijnia. He uses a pseudonym because of the sensitive nature of what he covers and the fact that he works for independent media outlets. As well as being lawless, the separatist-controlled, pro-Russian territories in eastern Ukraine are also in the process of becoming news and information “black holes” to which critical journalists and foreign observers are now rarely admitted. Ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, Ukraine continues to be the scene of an “information war” with Russia. September 7, 2020 Find out more
imaginima/iStock(DALLAS) — The search continued on Saturday for a Dallas man who removed his ankle monitor and disappeared after the third day of his own murder trial for fatally shooting another man in a Dallas strip club parking lot, authorities said.Rene Adrian Carrillo attended the first three days of his murder trial last week, before cutting off his electronic ankle monitor and skipping out on court Thursday, a spokesperson for the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office said in a press release on Friday.The trial continued in his absence and he was convicted this week and sentenced in absentia.“A guilty verdict and a 99-year prison sentence was handed down to a 25-year-old man who was a no show on day four of his murder trial,” according to the press release. “The United States Marshals Service immediately issued a warrant and released a wanted poster for Carillo. They have been on the hunt for him ever since.”On Oct. 11, 2017, Dallas authorities charged Carrillo with the murder of Jean Carlo Casiano-Torres, after the victim argued with Carrillo’s friend inside XTC Cabaret Dallas. The argument spilled over into the parking lot of the club, prosecutors said.While on trial, Carrillo was out on bond and fitted with the electric monitor, authorities said.“We got him on a ankle monitor, life was good, until it was time to go to court, ” U.S. Marshall B.K Nelson, who is looking for Carrillo, told ABC News on Saturday.“Court started Monday,” Nelson said. “He showed up every day. I testified, homicide detectives testified. On Wednesday, he went home, thought about it, called some people, asked what he was going to get — didn’t like what he heard.”Nelson said the company that monitored the ankle bracelet got a notification at 11:02 p.m. on Wednesday that someone was tampering with it. By 1 a.m. the monitor was deactivated completely.On Thursday morning, Nelson said — when Carrillo did not show up at court — the trial judge called him and said, “Hey BK, he’s running, I need you to find him.”When asked why authorities did not respond immediately when the alert when off indicating the device was being tampered with, Nelson said he did not know but said that there are many reasons an alert may go off improperly, or why a device would appear to be deactivated.Carrillo’s lawyer did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment. His voicemail box was full on Saturday and unable to accept new messages.If and when Carrillo is apprehended, he faces additional charges for fleeing and bail jumping, beyond his 99-year sentence for the murder, prosecutors said.“Although Carrillo decided to go on the run, it was important that he was held accountable,” Dallas Assistant District Attorney Summer Elmazi said.“The jury did that today with their verdict.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Top-level training helps cola giant rebuild trust and cut staff turnoverOn 27 May 2003 in Personnel Today An 18-month leadership programme at Coca-Cola Enterprises has increasedtrust and commitment among employees and lowered staff turnover. Simon Brocket, vice-president of HR at Coca-Cola, said the programme wasintroduced after a management opinion survey showed that the business’leadership wasn’t trusted. “Despite business results being good, labour turnover was 30 per cent,and people started asking why,” he said. Coca-Cola, with Lane 4 leadership consulting, began by taking itsvice-president level executives on a three-day, off-site exercise in an effortto build cohesion, and to talk about the role of the individual and the team. The company then introduced seven ‘strands’ to build commitment, and driveup trust and loyalty. These included getting the company chief to behavedifferently, using one-to-one coaches with the firm’s top 40 leaders, andbreaking down barriers between the teams by using workshops. Vice-presidents teamed up with directors to investigate areas of thebusiness, and make changes to affect working lives. In Brocket’s presentation, ‘When passion for the brand is just not enough’,he told delegates at the Richmond Events’ HR Forum, aboard the Aurora, that tochange culture you need to build genuine commitment to change. Brocket has been pleased with the results so far. “Qualitative data shows that there is more flexibility, more challengeand more initiative taking,” he said. Since the leadership programme was completed, employee turnover has droppedto 12 per cent. The employee survey also shows that trust in the company is upby 30 per cent, and that organisational commitment has risen by 40 per cent. By Quentin Reade Related posts:No related photos.

Suneil Setiya and the One Hyde Park complex (Photos via Wikipedia Commons/Rob Deutscher and Synergos)Hedge fund billionaire Suneil Setiya is said to be in talks to buy a massive London penthouse for around $153 million.The 14,000-square-foot unit that the Quadrature Capital founder is eyeing is located in the luxury residential complex known as One Hyde Park, according to Bloomberg. The unit has no internal walls and is completely unfinished, making its price tag all the more jaw-dropping. The deal would be one of the priciest residential sales to close in the United Kingdom, and the fourth largest to close above 100 million pounds in the last year or so, according to the report.Billionaire Cheung Chung Kiu spent 210 million pounds on a massive estate in Hyde Park early last year. And in November, an unknown buyer spent 147 million pounds on three units at No. 1 Grosvenor Square, a former U.S. embassy in the city.ADVERTISEMENTThe would-be seller of the One Hyde Park property is Hasan Ismaik, former CEO of Dubai-based construction firm Arabtec Holdings. Arabtec went into liquidation last year.One Hyde Park sits across from its eponymous park in Knightsbridge. It was developed by Christian Candy’s CPC Group and a company controlled by former Qatar Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jasim bin Jaber Al Thani and completed in 2009. There are 86 residential units and three retail stores.Candy’s brother, Nick also owns a penthouse at the complex, which is valued at 160 million pounds.Overall, London home prices keep ticking up. The average price of a home in the city rose nearly 10 percent between November 2019 and November 2020, to about 514,000 pounds, or just over $700,000. Demand has also been high during the pandemic for properties in suburban and rural areas that offer space and privacy.[Bloomberg] — Dennis Lynch Tags Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink LondonLuxury Real Estate

Open Letter from Jim Obergefell to Kim DavisDear Kim Davis:As you may know, when you fall in love with someone, you hand your heart and soul over to them. Anyone who has committed to sharing their life with another human and forming a family unit knows that it is the biggest and most rewarding adventure you will ever take.You know that all of the laughs and all of the tears won’t fall on the echo of an empty room, but will instead be received in the warm embrace of someone who has pledged to see you at your best and love you at your worst. You know that person is there to help pick you up on those days when the odds are stacked against you. You know that you never have to do the dishes alone.When I met John, I had no idea that I would spend the next two decades building a life with the man who would one day inspire me to demand our right to be recognized by our country. I earned the right to lawfully call him my husband, just as you have a right to call your husband such. Love transcends gender.You’re imposing the same indignities on couples in Rowan County that John and I suffered when Ohio would not legally recognize us as a married couple. Thankfully, the law is now changed so that nobody should ever have to experience the injustice that John and I endured. No one is above the law, Kim, not even you.Read the rest of my letter to Kim Davis, and add your name here: https://action.aclu.org/secure/letter-kim-davis.Sincerely,Jim ObergefellACLU ClientPlease take time and vote in today’s “Readers Poll”.
