This Family house is built on a hill planted with pine, oak, and birch trees, at the heart of a wide natural protected area. Densely wooded, on a slope, the field is mainly non-buildable because of its listed vegetal heritage. No tree can be cut down here: the house will be built in the higher part of the glade, facing the panorama. Favoring the relationship with natural elements, the shape of the house will be invented in an inverted panoptic geometry, multiplying the views to the outside. The construction template imposed by the town planning regulations, combined with the location of the project on a steep site, guides the choice of a partially buried ground floor which limits the visual impact of the project on its environment. Having all the rooms lit on the first day defines a longhouse, openings facing the slope.Save this picture!© David FoesselSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© David FoesselThe open-angle ground plan reduces the visual impact of this length and offers interior spaces also lateral views, in particular on wooded spaces. On the forest side, a single level for the shared living spaces. A roof that follows the slope of the land shelters a great height inside space with some low views towards the large landscape in the front, some high views towards the trees at the back. On the street side, a second level for the bedrooms.Save this picture!© David FoesselA sloping roof opposite to the first, but with a common sewer line at the back, minimizes the visual impact of the long but low back facade. Implanted in the open-angle of the house, all in length, on one level with the ground floor but detached from the natural soil, the trapezoidal terrace doubles the shared living spaces when the bay windows are open and in all seasons forms the theater of activities visible from all the rooms of the house. To anchor the pure geometry of the project in nature without weakening its rigor, the use of materials was deliberately limited to two materials with strong naturality.Save this picture!© David FoesselSave this picture!© David FoesselAnthracite sandblasted larch cladding, mat and deep, which follows the geometry of the project through its oriented slats, sometimes placed horizontally, sometimes diagonally parallel to the slope, according to the natural movement of the ground. A light gray concrete that emphasizes the thickness of the elements, marked by random moiré patterns that will acquire a patina over time. The anthracite zinc roofs are just an extension of the wood cladding. The large glass surfaces, pure reflections of nature during the day, disappear at night.Save this picture!© David FoesselThese two highly natural materials, characterized by their assertive monochrome, reveal and magnify the natural profusion of summer greens and autumn ochres. Located in the hollow of the main fold of the house, the staircase is the point of convergence of the multiple geometric figures of the project. It involves a whole winding of plans in its upward movement, like an echo of the complex exterior vegetal architectures.Save this picture!© David FoesselProject gallerySee allShow lessA Productive Floating Habitat – El Refugio del Pescador / Natura Futura Arquitectura…Selected ProjectsRigshospitalet Hospital North Wing / LINK arkitektur + 3XNSelected Projects Share France 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/948547/house-v-novo-architectures Clipboard Area:  170 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Year:  Structural Engineering: Manufacturers: Hansgrohe, Alape, B&B Italia, Bette, Flos, HAY, Luceplan, Revigres ArchDaily Houses CopyAbout this officeNOVO architecturesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookIttevilleFrancePublished on September 29, 2020Cite: “House V / NOVO architectures” 29 Sep 2020.

Después del voto en Amazon: La organización laboral es un derecho

first_imgLos siguientes comentarios editados fueron realizados en un seminario web del 9 de abril titulado “La lucha continúa – Próximos pasos para el sindicato de BAmazon y más allá – Reunión de organizadores” organizado por supportamazonworkers.org. Holmes es el Primer Secretario del partido Workers World Party/ Partido Mundo Obrero y organizador de la Asamblea de Trabajadores contra el Racismo en la ciudad de Nueva York.  Larry Holmes en la manifestación del 20 de febrero para los trabajadores de Amazon Bessemer en la ciudad de Nueva York. WW Photo: G. DunkelMi corazón, mi solidaridad está con los organizadores y los trabajadores de Bessemer que han luchado tanto por este voto. Los trabajadores del comercio minorista, mayorista y de los grandes almacenes se vieron superados por este monstruo de la corporación capitalista global, Amazon.Pero aun así hicieron lo que, francamente, deberían haber hecho los sindicatos más grandes, que tenían más recursos, infinitamente más recursos. El sindicato lo asumió. Pero como dijo el camarada Saladin, esto es una batalla; es el comienzo.La votación en Bessemer no es sólo un problema o una crisis o un revés, o como se quiera caracterizar. No es sólo un problema para los trabajadores de Alabama o para los trabajadores del Sur o para los trabajadores de Amazon; es un problema para toda la clase trabajadora, para todo el movimiento obrero y para la izquierda.La mayoría de nosotros entendió que no deberíamos confiar en 6.000 trabajadores de Alabama para enfrentarse a la mayor corporación del mundo, una corporación que prácticamente define el capitalismo global del siglo XXI. Es nuestra crisis. Ahora hay que desafiar al gremio laboral. Esto tiene que intensificar una crisis muy necesaria dentro del movimiento obrero a todos los niveles, no sólo en el liderazgo, no sólo en el Consejo Ejecutivo de la AFL-CIO, sino sobre todo a nivel de las bases obreras.Por eso estoy de acuerdo con Saladin Muhammad en ir de un lado a otro y celebrar reuniones para hablar con los trabajadores de base sobre este tema. Hay que plantear las preguntas: ¿Qué van a hacer los trabajadores ahora? ¿Cuál va a ser la respuesta? La única respuesta verdadera es ésta: La clase obrera y sus organizaciones -no sólo la más grande e importante en este momento por sus recursos- el movimiento obrero organizado debe idear un plan para responder a esto, para organizar a Amazon -no sólo a Bessemer- que tiene un millón de trabajadores en este país, sin incluir a Whole Foods, que es de su propiedad.¿Cómo van a trabajar juntos los sindicatos? ¿Cuál es su estrategia? ¿Cuál es su plan? ¿Qué sindicatos van a trabajar juntos y no competir entre sí? ¿Cómo van a ganarse a los militantes de grupos como Amazonians United y Whole Foods United, como mi buen amigo Chris Smalls, fundador del Congreso de Trabajadores Esenciales? Tienen una base en estos sitios de Amazon y Whole Foods, y se sienten alienados por los sindicatos.Los sindicatos no son a los que acuden, y tienen buenas razones para ello; en eso estamos de acuerdo la mayoría. Pero el problema es que la realidad de la situación significa que debemos tratar con el movimiento obrero, porque el movimiento obrero tiene los recursos, la infraestructura, el músculo y el poder. Y los trabajadores y los militantes que han estado organizando a Amazon y a Whole Foods son valientes, fuertes; están salpicando a Amazon y a Whole Foods, pero no pueden hacerlo solos.Es importante para los sindicatos – no ignorarlos y no descartarlos – pero hay que trabajar con ellos y ganarlos. Otra realidad crítica es que el mayor porcentaje de la clase trabajadora no está en el movimiento sindical. Pero hay que decirles que aunque sólo hagan pedidos, si se lo pueden permitir, a Amazon, son importantes para la lucha.Por supuesto, son los trabajadores que trabajan para Amazon y Whole Foods los que son fundamentales para organizar a Amazon y Whole Foods. Pero el resto de los que formamos parte de la clase trabajadora, estamos fuera; somos decenas de millones a nivel mundial. Estamos en los cientos de millones, pero tenemos un interés en esto; esta es nuestra lucha.Por eso fueron importantes algunas de las movilizaciones masivas que ayudamos a organizar el 20 de febrero y el 20 de marzo, en solidaridad con la lucha sindical en Alabama. Esas acciones ayudaron a empujar al movimiento obrero, que en muchos niveles ni siquiera estaba involucrado en Alabama, a involucrarse en ella. Lo que decimos ahora es que una parte de nuestra reacción a lo que ocurrió ayer y hoy es la divulgación de esta votación, que hizo nuestros días más difíciles; tenemos que responder a eso.Tenemos que decir que, aunque al final del día, la lucha decisiva se basará en los trabajadores de estos lugares de trabajo. Toda la clase obrera tiene que movilizarse para decir que exigimos que Amazon y Whole Foods, y cualquier otra entidad que tenga trabajadores que compre porque es muy rica, tenemos que exigir que acepten la sindicalización de los trabajadores.La clase obrera tiene que decir que eso es un complemento muy necesario para la organización en el lugar de trabajo. Sólo quiero mencionar algunas estrategias para avanzar, de las que espero que otros se hagan eco, estén en desacuerdo o añadan algo.Estrategias para avanzarMuchos de nosotros nos estamos organizando en torno a la legislación sobre el derecho a organizarse conocida como Ley PRO, que es progresista, buena y útil. Pero no incluye el reconocimiento de la recogida de tarjetas como base para que un empresario tenga que reconocer a un sindicato. Todavía tienen que ir por la ruta de la Junta Nacional de Relaciones Laborales, lo que fue un gran problema en Alabama. Queremos una “comprobación de tarjetas” que organice la recogida de esas tarjetas, y una vez que se tengan suficientes, eso debería ser todo.El jefe tiene que sentarse y negociar contigo, y punto. Eso no está en la Ley PRO. Tenemos que exigir su inclusión en la Ley PRO. Además, ese proyecto de ley está atascado en el Senado, lo que facilita que el presidente Biden y otros digan que están a favor, pero básicamente no hacen nada al respecto. Estamos tratando de entender por qué Biden tiene todos estos poderes y dice que es como FDR, pro-laboral, [pero] esperó hasta la mitad de la campaña para decir algo, no al principio.¿Por qué no emite una orden ejecutiva o una serie de órdenes ejecutivas que esencialmente conviertan en ley el derecho a organizar la Ley PRO de inmediato, incluyendo el control de tarjetas? Queremos escuchar lo que la gente piensa sobre eso y tal vez organizar una campaña alrededor de eso para usar esa orden ejecutiva.Queremos hablar de la formación de asambleas de trabajadores. Con el ejemplo y el espíritu de lo que ha hecho la Asamblea de Trabajadores del Sur, podemos aprender mucho. Allí donde el movimiento obrero es débil en el Sur, la Asamblea ha llenado el vacío.Han organizado a trabajadores en estados donde es ilegal estar en un sindicato, donde no se pueden pagar cuotas, pero lo han hecho. Tienen mucho que enseñarnos. Y tal y como está ahora el movimiento sindical, no es acogedor, excepto en los casos más raros, para los trabajadores migrantes, para los trabajadores indocumentados, para los trabajadores encarcelados, para los trabajadores del sexo que son trabajadores trans, para los trabajadores de gigas, para los conductores de Uber. ¿Quién va a organizar estas asambleas?Estas asambleas de trabajadores, organizadas a nivel local, intentan tanto organizar a los trabajadores como apoyar a los sindicatos y las luchas y solidarizarse con las luchas obreras en curso a nivel local e internacional.Son esenciales en este momento para transformar el movimiento obrero y hacerlo radical, hacerlo inclusivo y no excluyente. Y depende de nosotros. No podemos esperar a que otro lo haga.Se acerca el Primero de Mayo de 2021. ¿Cómo podemos hacer que el Primero de Mayo, dentro de unas semanas, sea significativo para lo que ocurrió en Alabama, para la legislación del derecho a organizarse, para organizar a los no organizados? ¿Deberíamos hacer un llamado nacional para las acciones del Primero de Mayo o con algunas cuestiones clave que recomendamos que los activistas de todo el país asuman?La unidad de la izquierda es crucialQuiero hablar de la necesidad de la unidad de la izquierda. En muchos sentidos, lo que vimos en los últimos dos meses al organizar las jornadas nacionales de solidaridad con los trabajadores de Alabama, fue una especie de unidad de la izquierda. No estaba organizada; no eran grupos que se reunieran y hablaran entre sí. Pero de repente este grupo lo estaba haciendo y ese grupo y estos grupos que no trabajan juntos, a pesar de muchas diferencias en temas grandes y pequeños, sin minimizar eso.Pero está claro que para cualquiera de nosotros que sea serio, no podemos hacer ningún movimiento – no podemos hacer nada a menos que haya una unidad seria de la izquierda. Nuestras organizaciones por sí solas son demasiado pequeñas. Si sólo queremos comentar cosas, si queremos criticar, que es necesario, está bien.Pero si queremos hacer algo, si queremos realmente hacer algo que marque la diferencia para transformar nuestra clase, para organizar a los trabajadores, para transformar el movimiento obrero, para cambiar lo que es ahora a lo que debería ser, tenemos que trabajar juntos.Diferentes organizaciones, socialistas y comunistas trabajaron juntos en los años 30. Lo hicieron desde Minneapolis hasta Flint y en todas partes, lo hicieron. Tenemos que movernos con ese espíritu. Los Socialistas Democráticos de América, que son la mayor agrupación de izquierda y no son un grupo homogéneo políticamente, ni siquiera ellos son lo suficientemente grandes. Y los que estamos en grupos más pequeños, donde no tenemos el tamaño en ciertas áreas, tenemos la experiencia para ser útiles.Así que, a medida que avancemos, tratemos de hacer lo que hicimos en los últimos dos meses. Si podemos hacerlo, y somos realmente serios, no creo que haya fin a lo que podemos hacer. El punto principal -y me estoy repitiendo- es que una cosa es tener una reunión y sentarse a un lado y comentar y criticar. Y eso es importante, sobre todo si educa y no desmoraliza las opiniones, o no es simplemente cínico.Pero también tenemos que preocuparnos por lo que podemos hacer cuando hemos trabajado juntos. Y si tenemos que luchar por el tipo de estructuras que necesitamos para una verdadera unidad de la izquierda, hagámoslo.Pero hagámoslo honestamente. Y hagámoslo con la determinación revolucionaria de tener un impacto en el futuro.Twitter: @monifromhomeFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Man goes to police station, confesses to murder; 1 body found in car, 3 in home: Officials

first_imgFILE photo – VisionsbyAtlee/iStock(MOUNT SHASTA, Calif.) — Four bodies have been recovered after a man allegedly went to a California police station and confessed to murder, authorities said.The man walked into the lobby of the Mt. Shasta Police Department just after noon Monday and reported that he had committed murder at his home in Roseville, adding that one possible victim was in his car at the police department and others were at his Roseville apartment, said police.Roseville is about 18 miles outside of Sacramento and Mt. Shasta is about 200 miles north.Officers found one body in the car outside the police station and detained the man, the Mt. Shasta Police Department said Monday night.Down in Roseville, officers were sent to an apartment complex where they found three more bodies, said police.Authorities have not named the suspect or victims but said it’s believed they were known to each other and this doesn’t appear to be a “random act.”The sole suspect is in custody, police said, adding there’s not believed to be an ongoing threat.Roseville police are expected to provide additional details at a news conference on Tuesday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Russia fines US-funded broadcaster under foreign agent law

first_imgMOSCOW (AP) — A Russian court has fined U.S.-funded broadcaster Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty $14,600 for violating the country’s law on foreign agents. Under the law, an organization receiving foreign funding that engages in loosely defined political work must register and identify itself as a foreign agent. The court, ruling on a complaint by state communications watchdog Roskomnadzor, said Wednesday that two Russian-language websites operated by RFE/RL did not post the required language on stories identifying them as foreign agents. The law is seen as an attempt to discredit foreign reporting and non-governmental organizations because of the pejorative connotation that the term “foreign agent” carries for many Russians.last_img read more

Billy Elliot Sets Closing Date in London’s West End

first_img View Comments After 4,600 performances, this feels like a somewhat seismic shift in London’s Theatreland—Billy Elliot is departing the West End. The musical will play its final performance at the Victoria Palace Theatre on April 9, 2016 as the production celebrates its eleventh birthday; it has been seen to date by over 5.25 million people in London and nearly 11 million people worldwide. We did already know that mega-producer Cameron Mackintosh plans to refurbish the venue next fall, however it had previously been unclear whether Billy would transfer to a new home in the U.K.’s capital or not.Directed by Stephen Daldry and featuring music by Elton John and a book and lyrics by Lee Hall, Billy Elliot is based on the Oscar nominated film and is an inspiring story of one boy’s dream to know his ambitions against the odds. Set in the North East of England alongside the backdrop of the historic 1984-85 miners’ strike, Billy follows his passion for dance in secret to evade disapproval from his struggling family.Ruthie Henshall and Deka Walmsley currently lead the adult cast in the West End as Mrs. Wilkinson and Dad, respectively. They are joined by Matthew Seadon-Young as Tony, Gillian Elisa as Grandma, Howard Crossley as George, Claudia Bradley as Dead Mum, Phil Snowden as Mr Braithwaite and James Butcher as Older Billy. Ensemble members are Craig Armstrong, Richard Ashton, James Ballanger, David Bardsley, Paul Basleigh, Rachel Bingham, Lucinda Collins, Peter Cork, Scott Cripps, Robbie Durham, Ross Finnie, Lee Hoy, Ruri James, Ben Redfern, Charlotte Riby, Mike Scott, Sharon Sexton, Wendy Somerville, Spencer Stafford, David Stoller and Kerry Washington.Brodie Donougher, Euan Garrett, Thomas Hazelby and Nat Sweeney alternate the title role of Billy Elliot. Ben Robinson, Nathan Jones and Bradley Mayfield play the role of Billy’s best friend Michael. Beatrice Bartley, Hollie Jayne Creighton and Connie Fisher alternate the role of Debbie.Billy Elliot officially opened on Broadway on November 13, 2008 at the Imperial Theatre, where it ran for 1312 performances. It won ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical.last_img read more
