Loos Architects have finished a residential block with 25 apartments and 20 townhouses in Amsterdam-IJburg. Located at the southeastern end of the archipelago, the building is a fringe phenomenon as well as a landmark.

Haveneiland, the biggest of the four finished islands, is characterized by an orthogonal street grid with perimeter blocks. At the southeastern end of the island – where the reclaimed land slowly fades into the water – lies a trapezium-shaped plot. Due to its fringe location, it’s only half as big as the standard blocks and forms an exception in the urban grid.Save this picture!© Allard van der HoekThis artificial location with scenic qualities was the starting point of the design of Block 64. According to the master plan, it should house a residential block with townhouses and apartments as well as a parking garage. Loos Architects have merged the different typologies into an architectural entity and created twelve different housing types, measuring 120 to 180 square metres. Save this picture!© Allard van der HoekWhat looks like a perimeter block at first sight, turns out to be an angular snake-shape, folding around a courtyard, at closer inspection. A characteristic silhouette is generated due to the jump in height between the five-storey apartment slab, which bends around the southeast corner, and the attached row of three-storey town houses. Playing with the relation between inside and outside and focussing on exterior spaces as a unifying element, the building has no backsides. Save this picture!© Allard van der HoekThree exterior façades have a rhythmic barcode structure consisting of brick- and window strips. On the fourth side, however, the sudden break in the urban grid becomes visible: The east façade looks as if the block has been cut open like a loaf of bread with a big knife, revealing its interior. This diagonal cut through the cross-wall structure results in a saw tooth façade with horizontal parapet ribbons, which fold themselves over the protruding balconies. Save this picture!© Allard van der HoekThe courtyard, lined by the terraces of the townhouses, serves as collective exterior space. In the centre lies a sculptural roof garden, which brings a piece of landscape into the courtyard. In contrast to the verticality of the exterior façades, this space is dominated by horizontal lines, resulting from the gallery access of the apartment slab. An element of surprise is the cladding of the galleries with green and yellow enameled glass plates. In combination with the rather subtle materials and colours used for the rest of the building (sand-coloured brick and dark-brown anodized window frames), they’re reminiscent of the colourful lining inside a designer suit. In Block 64, contradictions like urban density and peripheral location, stacked and terraced housing types, verticality and horizontality, flatness and plasticity come together.Save this picture!© Allard van der HoekProject gallerySee allShow lessSkanska: Bridging Prague International Design CompetitionArticlesChangzhou Culture Center / gmp ArchitektenArticlesProject locationAddress:IJburg, 1087 Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

The creators of the free online calendar is urging national and local charities to upload details of their events. More than 20 charities have already agreed to use the site, including Cancer Research UK, the British Red Cross, NSPCC, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and RNIB.Nick Wayne from Calendar Check said: “The whole idea came from the number of times the Calendar Check team has attended charitable committee meetings which have ground to a halt because no-one could decide on a date. And even once a date has been agreed, there was no effective way of finding out whether it would be in competition with another event which would dilute the potential uptake of tickets and attendance”.Cancer Research UK’s Nic Clarke said: “Cancer Research UK Relay For Life is really looking forward to working with Calendar Check on this exciting new resource that will help our supporters maximise their fundraising efforts.”www.calendarcheck.co.uk Howard Lake | 6 May 2010 | News New online charity calendar to help fundraising efforts Tagged with: Digital Eventslast_img read more

Cuba responds to ‘sonic attack’ allegations

first_imgThe following edited statement was issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba on Oct. 3. The full text is available at workers.org.On Sept. 29, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced the decision to significantly downscale the diplomatic staff of the U.S. Embassy in Havana and withdraw all their relatives, claiming that there had been “attacks” perpetrated against U.S. government officials in Cuba which have harmed their health.On Oct. 3, the U.S. government, in an unwarranted act, decided that 15 officials of the Cuban Embassy in Washington should depart from the United States, claiming that the U.S. had reduced their diplomatic staffing levels in Havana and that the Cuban government had failed to take all appropriate steps to prevent “attacks” against them.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly protests and condemns this unfounded and unacceptable decision as well as the pretext used to justify it, that the Cuban government did not take the appropriate measures to prevent the occurrence of the alleged incidents.In a meeting that, at the proposal of the Cuban side, was held with Secretary of State Tillerson, the minister of foreign affairs of the Republic of Cuba, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, warned him against the adoption of hasty decisions that were not supported by evidence, urged him not to politicize a matter of this nature, and once again required the effective cooperation from the U.S. authorities to clarify facts and conclude the investigation.It is the second time, after May 23, that the State Department has ordered two Cuban diplomats in Washington to abandon the country. The U.S. government reacts in a hasty, inappropriate and unthinking way, without having evidence of the occurrence of the adduced facts, for which Cuba has no responsibility whatsoever, and before the conclusion of the investigation that is still in progress.As was expressed by the Cuban foreign minister to Secretary of State Tillerson on Sept. 26, Cuba — whose diplomatic staff members have been victims in the past of attempts perpetrated against their lives; who have been murdered, disappeared, kidnapped or attacked during the performance of their duty — has seriously and strictly observed its obligations under the Geneva Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961, referring to the protection and integrity of diplomatic agents accredited in the country, of which it has an impeccable record.As was informed by the Ministry on Aug. 9, [after] Feb. 17, when the U.S. Embassy and State Department notified us of the alleged occurrence of incidents since November 2016 against some officials of that diplomatic mission and their relatives, arguing that these had caused them injuries and other disorders, the Cuban authorities have acted with utmost seriousness, professionalism and immediacy to clarify this situation and opened an exhaustive and priority investigation following instructions from the top level of the government. The measures adopted to protect the U.S. diplomatic staff, their relatives and residences, were reinforced; new expeditious communication channels were established between the U.S. Embassy and the Diplomatic Security Department; and a committee of experts was created to make a comprehensive analysis of facts, which was made up of law enforcement officials, physicians and scientists.In the face of the belated, fragmented and insufficient information supplied by the U.S., the Cuban authorities requested further information and clarifications from the U.S. Embassy in order to carry out a serious and profound ­investigation….Only after repeated requests were conveyed to the U.S. government, some representatives of specialized agencies of that country finally traveled to Havana on June last, met with their Cuban counterparts and expressed their intention to cooperate in a more substantive way in the investigation of the alleged incidents. They again visited Cuba in August and September, and for the first time in more than 50 years they were allowed to work on the ground, for which they were granted all facilities, including the possibility of importing equipment, as a gesture of goodwill that evidenced the great interest of the Cuban government in concluding the investigation.The Cuban authorities carefully assessed the three visits made by the U.S. specialized agencies, which have recognized the high professional level of the investigation started by Cuba and its high technical and scientific component, and which, as a preliminary result, concluded that, so far, according to the information available and the data supplied by the United States, there was no evidence of the occurrence of the alleged incidents or the causes and the origin of the health disorders reported by the U.S. diplomats and their relatives.Neither has it been possible to identify potential perpetrators or persons with motivations, intentions or means to perpetrate this type of actions; nor was it possible to establish the presence of suspicious persons or means at the locations where such facts have been reported or in their vicinity. The Cuban authorities are not familiar with the equipment or the technology that could be used for that purpose; nor do they have information indicating their presence in the country.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs categorically rejects any responsibility of the Cuban government in the alleged incidents and reiterates once again that Cuba has never perpetrated, nor will it ever perpetrate attacks of any sort against diplomatic officials or their relatives, without any exception. Neither has it ever allowed nor will it ever allow its territory to be used by third parties for that purpose.The Ministry emphasizes that the U.S. government’s announced decision to reduce Cuba’s diplomatic staff in Washington, without the conclusive results from the investigation and without evidence of the incidents that would be affecting their officials in Cuba, has an eminently political character.The Ministry urges the competent authorities of the U.S. government not to continue politicizing this matter, which can provoke an undesirable escalation and would rarify and reverse even more bilateral relations, which were already affected by the announcement of a new policy made in June by President Donald Trump.The Ministry reiterates Cuba’s disposition to continue fostering a serious and objective cooperation between the authorities of both countries with the purpose of clarifying these facts and conclude the investigation, for which it will be essential to count on the most effective cooperation of the U.S. competent agencies.Havana, October 3, [email protected] thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Oakland residents and San Jose residents placed sixth and eleventh overall, respectively.The rankings are based on “direct work factors” and “indirect work factors.” Direct work factors include average workweek hours, the city’s overall employment rate, the percentage of workers not taking vacation time, the percentage of workers identified as engaged in their jobs, and “idle youth,” the percentage of people between 16 and 24 who are neither working nor in school.Indirect work factors look at average commute time, how many workers have more than one job, annual volunteer hours workers engage in, and how much leisure time residents have in an average day. Each set of factors totaled 100 points. San Francisco and Fremont each had final scores above 78. Jersey City, Washington, D.C., New York, and Oakland also finished with more than 70 points. Boston, Aurora, Newark, and Chicago rounded out the top ten hardest-working cities.On the other end of the scale, residents of Columbia were ranked as the least hard-working. That city in North Carolina compiled a hard-working score of just over 25. Charleston and Cheyenne were placed second and third in this category. And despite that California had three cities in the top 10 (four in the top 11 if you include Los Angeles), it also has two in the bottom 10. Fresno and Bakersfield were the fourth and sixth least-hard-working cities the rankings found. Lubbock, Texas, split the two up and took fifth place. Buffalo, Reno, Fargo, and Toledo rounded out the bottom 10.

The Division Bench of Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw and Justice Asha Menon has also directed the University to render all such assistance as required by the visually impaired students. The order has come in a writ petition filed by the National Federation of the Blind seeking the following reliefs: Direction to be issued to DU to assess the performance of visually impaired and other students with disabilities, of final semester/term/year for academic session 2019-2020, on the basis of their performance in the previous semester as well as internal assessment, on the same basis as has been decided to be done for other intermediate semester students Direction to be issued to DU to permit visually impaired and other students with disabilities of final semester/term/year of both UG and PG programmes, to appear in the entrance test for the course/programmes of their choice and grant them admission provisionally for academic session 2020-2021, if their results are not declared by the time the admission process is commenced.

He says he was never informed of all the allegations against him, including those of the former tánaiste, until after the investigation concluded.Mr Kelly is seeking an order quashing the decision to dismiss him and declarations including that his dismissal was unfair, tainted by bias, in breach of due process and irrational.He also claims the investigation was not conducted with due expediency and involved inordinate and inexcusable delay. He is also seeking damages. The State parties have denied all of Mr Kelly’s claims.John Rogers SC, for Mr Kelly, said materials were concealed from his client, including records of a meeting held between the then minister for agriculture Mary Coughlan and a senior department official in October 2004.Mr Rogers said Ms Coughlan outlined more than 25 complaints against Mr Kelly at that meeting.She alleged he had piloted boats in the harbour for cash, was “a bully-boy” and did not want security at the harbour, Mr Rogers added. There was also a reference to the sinking of a boat and that Mr Kelly had “shot every dog in Donegal town”. Her complaints were then put in an email sent to the official investigating complaints against Mr Kelly. The complaints, Mr Rogers submitted, displayed bias against his client.He said Mr Kelly knew nothing of the Minister’s complaints against him until March 2009 following a request under the Freedom of Information Act.The hearing continues before Mr Justice John Hedigan.
