House “V” was designed in order to satisfy the needs of a family. Applying communication between the common and individual rooms, the facilities and functions of the space have been connected into a single unit that creates a comfortable living area for a family.Save this picture!The house is situated beneath Zagreb mountain Medvednica, on a relatively mild hill that stretches from south to east. The formed building direction and the quality of the landscape have directly influenced the position of the house.Save this picture!The house is closed on the north side along the street and opens up into a large private garden thus creating a sense of intimacy for family life. The ground floor is intended for the common activities of the inhabitants, with a gradual staircase connecting the serene living area to private rooms on the first floor. Save this picture!Exits to the outdoor landscape are possible from the pool on the southern side, the porch area on the southeastern side, along the glass front of the living room and from the commercial part on northeast side. The open ground floor is directed towards the outside area while the partly enclosed first floor with a terrace only symbolically plays with the relationship of the intimate and transparent.Save this picture!The longitudinal volume that breaks amply is included in the dynamic by vertical openings on both floors on the western façade. With its shape and careful fit into the surrounding landscape, House “V” stands out distinctly from the buildings around it.Project gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: Elephant House / Foster + PartnersSelected ProjectsHouse in Gerês / Correia/Ragazzi ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Projects House V / 3LHD Save this picture!+ 29 Sharelast_img read more

Irán se mantiene firme mientras EE.UU. amenaza con atacar

Irán se mantiene firme mientras EE.UU. amenaza con atacar

first_img18 de junio — ¿Han terminado los días en que Washington sacido su gran garrote y el resto del mundo imperialista se alineaba de inmediato?La pandilla de conspiradores Pompeo-Bolton-Trump en Washington parece estar teniendo dificultades para alinear a sus socios/rivales imperialistas detrás de un ataque contra Irán. Su intento de crear una crisis global por el daño infligido el 13 de junio a dos petroleros en el Estrecho de Ormuz, que no sufrieron pérdidas de vidas y no corrieron peligro de hundirse, recibió gran escepticismo, no solo del público en general. Si no de los jefes de estado de Europa occidental.Incluso estos compañeros imperialistas son muy conscientes de que los preparativos de los Estados Unidos para un asalto a Irán se basan en un paquete de mentiras, y seguirlos pondría en juego sus propios intereses.La llamada “prueba” ofrecida por Washington de que Irán estaba detrás de los ataques ha sido ampliamente rechazada, incluso por el propietario de al menos uno de los petroleros.Ese barco, el Kakura Courageous, es propiedad de una compañía japonesa. Fue atacado mientras el primer ministro de Japón, Shinzo Abe, estaba haciendo una visita de estado a Irán, a pesar de las sanciones de los Estados Unidos.La idea de que Irán elija ese momento para atacar a un barco japonés es ridícula, por decir lo menos.Sin embargo, tan débiles como son los argumentos de Estados Unidos para atacar a Irán, Washington ha estado avanzando, intentando alinear el apoyo de al menos algunas de las potencias imperialistas europeas para un movimiento agresivo contra el país rico en petróleo. Y el 17 de junio, Trump envio a otros 1.000 soldados estadounidenses al Medio Oriente.Las amenazas de guerra no han funcionadoIrán ha desafiado la presión. El mismo día, Irán anunció que tiene la intención de reanudar su producción de combustible nuclear, que acordó suspender en 2015 a cambio de levantar severas sanciones económicas.La movida de Irán no debería ser una sorpresa. La administración Trump ya había anunciado, hace un año, que se retiraba del acuerdo de 2015. Desde entonces, se ha duplicado las sanciones, tratando de hacer que los iraníes se sometan a la sumisión.Entonces, ¿por qué debería Irán continuar honrando el acuerdo cuando los Estados Unidos ya lo habían matado?En el momento en que Washington se retiró del acuerdo, los gobiernos alemán, francés y británico dijeron en una declaración conjunta que la decisión de EE.UU. de volver a imponer sanciones a Irán era “profundamente lamentable”. Era una señal temprana de que la clase dominante de EE.UU. ya no podía simplemente chasquear sus dedos y recoger a sus aliados imperialistas, que también son rivales, y sellar asi cada acto de agresión.Sin embargo, el peligro de la guerra se mantiene. El Pentágono está moviendo más tropas al área, y la administración Trump está incrementando sus amenazas contra Irán.Es deber de las fuerzas antibélicas en nuestro país ver esto seriamente y salir a las calles para resistir esta agresión flagrante.¿Dónde está el Congreso?¿Dónde está el Congreso de los Estados Unidos en todo esto? Esta es la temporada en la que supuestamente todos los ojos están enfocados en las elecciones del próximo año tanto para la presidencia como para el Congreso, como si eso determinara lo que sucederá en el futuro.La Constitución de los Estados Unidos es absolutamente clara: solo el Congreso puede declarar la guerra. Pero la última vez que ocurrió fue en 1942, en medio de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, cuando los Estados Unidos declararon la guerra a Hungría ocupada por los nazis, a Rumanía y Bulgaria. En los 77 años transcurridos desde entonces, los presidentes de los Estados Unidos han enviado a jóvenes a matar, morir o ser mutilados permanentemente en docenas de guerras no declaradas.Todos los que sostienen el sistema político de los Estados Unidos como un modelo de “democracia” deben ser considerados como responsables de esta usurpación de poder por parte del ejecutivo. De todas las ramas de gobierno en este país, la Cámara de Representantes de los Estados Unidos es presumiblemente la más democrática. Pero, de hecho, ambas cámaras del Congreso han por mucho tiempo dado su sello de aceptación a las agresiones militares exigidas por la clase rapaz multimillonaria, que ha molido los cuerpos de tantos, aquí y en el extranjero, en su insaciable busca de super ganancias.Guerra y crisis económica.Esta amenaza de guerra se está desarrollando en un momento en que la mayoría de los gobiernos se están preparando para una desaceleración importante en la economía capitalista global. Esta disminución ya ha comenzado en áreas importantes de producción y en la profundización de las guerras comerciales, pero aún no se ha reflejado en los principales mercados de valores.El precio de los futuros del petróleo crudo Brent, que alcanzó un mínimo de cinco meses de menos de 60 dólares por barril el día anterior a los ataques, tuvo un breve pero brusco aumento el 13 de junio, cuando parecía una guerra de Estados Unidos contra el petróleo. La producción de Irán era inminente. Cuando disminuyeron las perspectivas de ello, cuando otros países imperialistas occidentales se abstuvieron de respaldar las afirmaciones de Washington, el precio del petróleo volvió a hundirse al día siguiente.Nada hace que los especuladores saliven más que una intervención militar jugosa. Por ahora, eso no ha sucedido, y los mercados a partir del 15 de junio lo reflejaron. Pero no hay garantías de que la imprudente camarilla en Washington se retire de sus amenazas contra Irán.A $60 por barril, las empresas estadounidenses que producen petróleo a través del costoso método de extracción de fracking, costoso y ambientalmente horrendo, no pueden competir con el petróleo extraído de pozos. Estas empresas quieren precios más altos, y los quieren ahora.Pero la caida de los precios de las materias primas es una SE~NAL  de sobreproducción capitalista a escala global, y la sobreproducción intensifica la feroz competencia inter-capitalista por los mercados. Una caída en el precio del petróleo también puede reflejar pesimismo sobre la actividad económica futura.Ganancias antes que el medio ambienteIncluso hoy en día, cuando se ha demostrado que la quema de combustibles fósiles está calentando el planeta y causando cada vez más extremos climáticos, la lucha por las ganancias del petróleo sigue siendo un motor importante de la competencia capitalista y antagonismos nacionales.Es impactante pensar que se podría iniciar otra guerra para controlar los beneficios de un recurso que es peligroso para el futuro del mundo entero. Pero, ¿debería alguien esperar que los gobernantes capitalistas sean sensibles y se preocupen por el calentamiento global a largo plazo, cuando su sistema es impulsado por la lucha diaria con fines de lucro perro-come-perro y están dispuestos a crear enormes catástrofes humanas y ambientales con sus guerras?EE.UU. con mira hacia naciones petrolerasNo es una coincidencia de que la gran mayoría de los países sometidos a ataques militares de los Estados Unidos durante las últimas décadas hayan sido naciones productoras de petróleo. Solo piense en lo que han estado haciendo el Pentágono y la CIA: 1991, ataque con bombas e invasión parcial de Irak; 1998, ataque con misiles de crucero en Sudán; 2003, invasión y ocupación de Irak; 2011, el bombardeo de Libia y el asesinato de Muammar Gaddafi; 2012, inicio de la guerra contra Siria; 2014, ataques aéreos en Irak y Siria.Y no hablar de los esfuerzos en curso de Estados Unidos para derribar al gobierno venezolano con sanciones e intentos de golpe de estado.Todos son países productores de petróleo. Pero no solo eso.Son todos los países que habían sido oprimidos y explotados por las potencias coloniales europeas. Habían alcanzado cierta medida de soberanía después de que una ola de luchas de liberación provocara la descolonización.Y precisamente porque son productores de petróleo, tenían los medios para construir con éxito sus economías nacionales.Sin embargo, debido a las intervenciones imperialistas en el Medio Oriente, lideradas por los EE. UU. si no que también participaron por las potencias europeas de la OTAN, muchos de estos países están hoy destrozados, sus economías destruidas por la guerra y su gente traumatizada hasta tal punto que no hay futuro y están huyendo por millones.Esta es la causa de la crisis de inmigración/migración que enfrenta gran parte de Europa hoy, y ese es un factor en la resistencia de estos países imperialistas a ser arrastrados a otra guerra.El pasado torturado de IránLas últimas amenazas contra Irán no son nada nuevo. Los gobiernos imperialistas de los Estados Unidos, tanto republicanos como demócratas, han tenido al país en su punto de mira desde 1951, cuando un movimiento por la soberanía nacional liderado por Mohammad Mossadegh nacionalizó lo que había sido la Compañía de Petróleo Anglo-Persa.Dos años más tarde, un golpe de estado de la CIA dirigido por Kermit Roosevelt Jr. derrocó al gobierno nacionalista e instaló al Shah, que permitió que las compañías estadounidenses y británicas se hicieran cargo del petróleo nuevamente. El mismo Roosevelt pronto se convirtió en un ejecutivo de Gulf Oil. La sangrienta represión bajo el odiado Shah eventualmente llevó a un levantamiento masivo en 1979 que derrocó a este títere de la compañía petrolera. Una lucha entre varias fuerzas de clase en ese levantamiento resultó en el gobierno islámico de hoy.Aunque conservador en algunas áreas, este gobierno re nacionalizó el petróleo y ha utilizado gran parte de los ingresos para elevar el nivel de vida del pueblo iraní. Al mismo tiempo, los Estados Unidos han tratado de frenar el desarrollo de Irán imponiendo sanciones económicas, comerciales, científicas y militares a Irán, de vez en cuando, desde la revolución de 1979.Como una medida importante de su progreso, hoy en día las mujeres constituyen la mayoría de los estudiantes universitarios en Irán y se pueden encontrar en trabajos calificados en todos los niveles. Comparemos eso con las condiciones en Arabia Saudita, que está gobernada por la familias multimillonarias de la casa de Saúd y tiene las leyes anti-mujeres más draconianas del planeta.Los monarcas de Arabia Saudita reciben una bienvenida real en Washington, mientras que uno de los primeros viajes de Donald Trump al extranjero después de convertirse en presidente fue visitar al Rey Salman en la lujosa Corte Real de Arabia Saudita en Riyadh. Arabia Saudita, donde los disidentes son asesinados y los inmigrantes hacen todo el trabajo sucio mientras son tratados como esclavos, está en apuros con el “líder del mundo libre”Más razones para que las fuerzas antibélicas se movilicen aquí y manifiesten claramente ante el mundo: dinero para empleos, educación y atención médica, ¡no guerra! ¡Poner fin a las sanciones sobre Irán! ¡No hay sangre por las ganancias del petróleo!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Breaking barriers: Trailblazing women in sports media

Breaking barriers: Trailblazing women in sports media

It started with two women who are called trailblazers in this industry: Lesley Visser and Melissa Ludtke. As roles in sports media increase for women, many female sports journalists who follow Visser and Ludtke continue to break barriers. In 2015, former softball player Jessica Mendoza became the first female commentator for a MLB game in ESPN’s history. In January 2016, Mendoza formally joined the Sunday Night Baseball coverage full-time. In 2018, sports reporters Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm became the first all-female booth to call any male sports team, not just football, with Amazon Prime Thursday Night Football.But, it all began with these two women: Visser and Ludtke. Both have monumental footprints in the history of women in sports media, and today’s journalists follow these footprints. Today, the paths that are available to aspiring female sports journalists is due in part to these two women and many more. Women in media, and sports media in particular, continue to face a patriarchal environment and criticism for being in a male-dominated industry. Visser and Ludtke have a history that needs to be shared as they also reflect on what sports media looks like for women today and where it is headed.Lesley VisserPictured here with Boomer Esiason, center, and Howard David in the CBS radio booth for a NFL game in 2001. (AP Photo/Donna McWilliam)In 1974, sports media was a men’s club until Lesley Visser came along. Visser joined the sports staff of the Boston Globe after graduating from Boston College. Starting out she covered everything, but within two years she became the first woman NFL beat writer when she was assigned to cover the New England Patriots. During her 14 years with the Globe, Visser covered college basketball, the NBA, tennis, golf, the MLB, horse racing, college football and the NFL. Today, she is the only sportscaster who has worked network broadcasts of seven major sporting events: Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, Triple Crown, Olympic Games, U.S. Open (golf) and the World Figure Skating Championship.

Although she was a beat reporter for Sports Illustrated, Ludtke was expected to wait outside the clubhouse while their male counterparts could go speak to players. When the then-MLB Commissioner Bowie Kuhn barred her from the locker rooms, Ludtke, who was 26 at the time, sued. Ludtke v. Kuhn was heard in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in 1978. Kuhn said in his statement to the federal judge that females were kept out of the clubhouse because he felt Major League Baseball had a high standard to uphold integrity and morality (Ludtke v. Kuhn 1978). Today the point still gets lost in sexist rhetoric about a woman being in a men’s locker room.But Ludtke said her suit was about women having equal access to do their jobs. If interviews were never held in a locker room again after the case, she’d be okay with that, Ludtke said. This case, she said, was about the equal access to sources.

Women in Sports Media TodayDecades later women in sports media still face barriers. Men continue to hold the decision-making power in most (if not all) sports, and society’s attitudes toward women sports reporters are lagging as well. Women often have worked to be taken seriously. They continue to face sexism and sexual harassment. Women are still the minority in the sports media industry. They face public criticism on social media. In some cases their accomplishments and storylines are defined by their femininity.Jessica Mendoza is the worst example of a woman working in sports https://t.co/qIg7fpYFtG— Branden Werner (@bbmmww94) January 16, 2020 PlayPlayPauseSeek0% buffered00:00Current time00:00Toggle MuteVolumeToggle CaptionsToggle FullscreenLudtke on the state of women in sports media todayLudtke on the state of women in sports media todayStill, Visser and Ludtke see signs for hope in the strides that have been made. More women are entering the industry and there are more options when pursuing a career thanks to social media and many online platforms.“The changes have been magnificent from my vantage point,” said Visser. She noted that CBS sports has the first all-women network sports talk show, We Need to Talk. She said she saw a turning point for women reporters in 2017.

From social media platforms to video creation to podcasting, there are many different forms of journalism beyond writing. Yet, they are all just a different way to tell a story. PlayPlayPauseSeek0% buffered00:00Current time00:00Toggle MuteVolumeToggle CaptionsToggle FullscreenLudtke on social media being used todayLudtke on social media being used todayThe Next Generation Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, right, talks with reporter Erin Andrews, left, before an NFL football game in 2019.

Selvaraj, IPS (Retd.), Director General of Prisons, Haryana and Shri Parmod Goyal, District & Sessions Judge-cum-Member Secretary, Haryana State Legal Services Authority. The High Powered Committee (HPC) was constituted at State level under the directions of Supreme Court of India issued on 23.03.2020 in Suo Motu Writ Petition (Civil) No.1/2020-In RE: Contagion of COVID-19 in Prisons for release of convicts/undertrials on parole/interim bail.   Since its constitution, the Committee has been granting/extending the parole/bail to the convicts/undertrials after duly taking into consideration the COVID-19 situation in order to avoid risk of infection inside the jails.   Now, considering the current prevailing situation, the Committee has decided to start re-admission of convicts released on parole under the recommendations of High Powered Committee in 09 phases. Jail authorities have been directed to ensure re-admission as per principles laid by High Powered Committee for readmitting the convicts and strictly ensure that convicts are readmitted on the basis of term of their imprisonment from 23.02.2021 onwards. Jail authorities and Health authorities have been directed to co-ordinate with each other and follow strict testing and quarantine protocol at the time of readmission of 2,580 convicts. In the meeting, it has further been decided that the prisoners who were released on parole/furlough from 01.02.2021 onwards, shall surrender on expiry of period of parole/furlough granted to them by the competent authorities. Due to COVID-19 infection, meeting of prisoners with their family members was suspended. Now, High Powered Committee has permitted re-start of ‘Mulakaat’ of prisoners with their family members from Monday to Friday in a week. Undertrials and convicts have also been allowed to meet their lawyers on every Saturday. Undertrials shall get the meeting with their family members twice in a month whereas convicts would be allowed to meet once in a month. Jail authorities have been directed to take all precautionary safeguards to avoid infection i.e. wearing of mask, sanitization of hands, social distancing etc. for conducting interview. Further, the Committee has allowed the jail authorities to make transfers of prisoners from one jail to another only on security grounds or in view of COVID-19 issues. Release of convicts/undertrials on parole/bail had resulted in decongestion of jails allowing jail authorities to mange COVID pandemic in efficient manner. No major cases of infection were reported in Haryana jails due to health protocol suggested and implemented under the orders of High Powered Committee. Next Storylast_img read more

Holmes writes ‘story songs’ for grownup folks

Holmes writes ‘story songs’ for grownup folks

first_img “I like to write and sing about wacky things,” he said with a smile. “Things like hardware stores and building materials. One of my favorite songs is ‘I’d Rather Watch the Concrete Set.’ I like the visual of a truck pulling into the driveway and the concrete settin’ while the truck is settin’.Holmes also likes to write story songs with a little “meat” to them.“I’ve written several patriotic songs,” he said. “One I wrote after I visited the Punchbowl National Cemetery of the Pacific in Oahu, Hawaii. This older gentleman was sitting there in a wheelchair looking out at the markers. Many of them marked those who were killed during the attack on Pearl Harbor. I knew there must be a story somewhere.”Not knowing the story, Holmes “imagined” a story.Many of his stories are homegrown others are imagined but all of them are stamped with the Brent Holmes’ trademark – homespun humor and hometown heart.Holmes’ hope now is to sing his stories at folk festivals and other venues across the country.He is not deserting his kids’ tunes because they have propelled him to the height of one of the most highly regarded singer/songwriter of children’s song. But, he’s excited about his future as a singer/song writer of wacky songs for grownup folks.

You gotta do something with it.What Brent Holmes does with thoughts like that is turn them into songs – story songs.Holmes has been writing story songs for years. He wrote a few songs for such notables as Jerry Clower and Minnie Pearle but, mainly, he wrote story songs for children. Book Nook to reopen “I got so busy making CDs and DVDs for children that I didn’t do much of anything else for about 12 years,” Holmes said. “But I’ve always enjoyed performing and I’d done some of it. First, at Calico Fort in Fort Deposit and at Old Alabama Town in Montgomery. I knew back then that I wanted, some day, to perform my music.”About a year ago, Holmes decided to get back into the performing arts but realized that he didn’t have enough material for a two-hour performance.“So, I had to get busy writing and for big folks,” he said, laughing. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits For his story songs for grown folks who enjoy the Clower-kind of humor, Holmes only had to look as far back as his childhood and the small town of Brundidge where he did a lot of his growing up.Holmes was back in Brundidge Saturday night for an encore performance at studio 116 and many of his story songs were about the town and its people. And, the townspeople turned out to hear what he had to say about them.“Brent is a great songwriter and singer,” said Les Jackson. “We really enjoyed his songs because we could relate to them. They were all very entertaining, just a lot of fun.”Holmes said that he likes to write story songs about things that people don’t normally sing about – or that “normal” people don’t sing about.

We must accept scale of mental health issue

We must accept scale of mental health issue

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. We must accept scale of mental health issueOn 18 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Ifone in five of us had caught flu last winter, we would have rightly called itan epidemic. With around the same share of the labour force suffering from workrelated stress, according to official figures, it’s time to start acknowledgingthat mental health at work – of which stress is a part – deservesepidemic-scale treatment. It’snot always seen as a credible reason to be off work, the symptoms vary,colleagues aren’t always sympathetic, and GPs don’t give consistent advice –and that’s just flu. Theparallels with mental health problems are uncomfortable, as new research forthe Department of Health, to be published later in the year, shows. On mentalhealth too, it emerges, there can be a damaging mismatch between the employeeand employer view of the situation, along with altogether more serious problemsof discrimination and inconsistency in the way the problem is handled, insideand outside the organisation.  Thescale of the problem is breathtaking. Around 80 million work days are lostannually due to mental health problems, at an annual cost of roughly £3.7bn.Seven out of 10 people with mental health problems have been put off applyingfor jobs for fear of unfair treatment; one in three believe they’ve beendismissed or forced to resign because of discrimination. Yetfew appear to disagree that mental health discrimination wrecks lives, taintsorganisations that permit it, wastes human potential on a colossal scale, andcosts businesses in lost production.Factorslike these have led to the Department of Health’s new “Mind Out for MentalHealth” campaign. With the aid of new research, site visits, a managementtoolkit, a website and other initiatives, the campaign about to target yourworkplace will try to spread the message that mental health discrimination isunlawful and unacceptable, show how to improve opportunities for those withmental health problems, and generally end the fear and stigma at work aboutthis issue. Researchcarried out by the Industrial Society for the campaign shows just how far wehave to go. The findings will be discussed at a conference on 19 June, but theyalready reveal alarming levels of ignorance. Managers and employees freelyadmit to a lack of understanding and awareness, which in turn help to explainthe clear evidence of discrimination – and worse – experienced by those withmental health problems such as depression. Forpolicy makers, there are disturbing signs that the Disability DiscriminationAct is yet to register, let alone bite, in many organisations. And from justabout everyone questioned, there is an urgent plea for easy access to expertinformation and advice. The Mind Out for Mental Health campaign could hardly bemore timely.
