This project is an exploration of the modernist pavilion in an extreme desert context. The site is a west-facing rocky knoll with distant views of a volcanic mountain ridge to the west and the Sea of Cortez to the south. The organization of the architectural program is used to create a passive solar response to the constraints of a challenging site and a modest construction budget.Save this picture!© John SinalThe project utilizes a relatively small building footprint on the steeply sloping site – organizing the public living areas on a series of cascading platforms, shaded and sheltered by a single monolithic rectangular volume that houses the bedrooms above. The circulation corridor on the upper floor features a southwest-facing perforated exterior wall that absorbs the intense solar gain, isolating the inboard bedrooms from the heat while also creating a pressure differential that results in effective passive ventilation.Save this picture!SectionThe upper volume is supported lightly on three points, with the majority of the main floor opening into the landscape through a series of operable glass panels. There is a large internal rectangular opening in the upper box, through which a cantilevered stair rises upward over the plunge pool.

Korea won’t be intimidated

first_imgPyongyang, north Korea, after an air raid by U.S. planes in 1950.The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously on Aug. 5 to impose stiff economic sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea because it refuses to give up its development of a nuclear deterrent.The Security Council is run by five permanent members with veto powers: the U.S., France, Britain, Russia and China. Ten more countries participate in the Security Council, but only for two years and without a veto.The five permanent members of the Security Council are also the world’s most heavily armed nuclear powers.The U.S. started the nuclear arms race, and is the only country to have ever used these fearsome weapons, incinerating more than 200,000 Japanese civilians at the end of World War II. Even though the Cold War is long over, the U.S. military still keeps nearly 7,000 operational warheads.What terrible hypocrisy that these nuclear powers should accuse the DPRK of being “irrational” and “aggressive” for seeking its own nuclear deterrent! And how shameful that China and Russia, both countries that had to defy the U.S. to develop their own nuclear defense, would join in with the imperialists on this vote!From 1950 to 1953 the U.S. tried to annihilate the DPRK. It carried out the most concentrated bombing of any country in the world. And while the bombs were conventional, the threat of using nuclear weapons was made many times during the Korean war, most notably by Gen. Douglas MacArthur.Yet the Korean people fought on with incredible valor. Finally the U.S. was forced to give up its attempt to conquer north Korea and annihilate the country’s leadership. The U.S. signed an armistice agreement in 1953, but has never normalized relations with the DPRK. On the contrary, the Pentagon has maintained a large presence in south Korea and kept nuclear weapons stationed there until mass protests by the people in the south forced their removal.This is what the corporate media in the U.S. conveniently forget to mention when they accuse the leaders of the DPRK of acting irrationally by bolstering their defenses. Did they ever talk that way about MacArthur, President Harry Truman or any of the other imperialist leaders who have employed horrendous military methods? And it wasn’t for defense, but to impose U.S. imperialist domination over much of the world.The Trump administration and the Pentagon generals — who keep appearing in more and more White House jobs — may have thought this U.N. Security Council resolution would intimidate the DPRK.Far from it.Here are some quotes from a statement issued by the government of the DPRK in reaction to the Security Council vote:“The UN ‘sanctions resolution’ … constitutes a flagrant infringement upon [the DPRK’s] sovereignty and an open challenge to it.“The DPRK’s access to the strongest nuclear force is a fair and legitimate measure for self-defense to protect the country’s sovereignty and the nation’s right to existence from the high-handed and arbitrary acts of the U.S. … It is trying to drive the situation of the Korean peninsula to the brink of nuclear war, running amok to conduct missile drill against the DPRK and deploying massive strategic equipment to the peninsula.“It was against this backdrop that the U.S. manipulated UNSC to rig up the ‘sanctions resolution’ more heinous than ever, placing a total ban even on normal trade activities and economic exchange, thereby disclosing before the whole world its evil intentions to obliterate the ideology and system of the DPRK and exterminate its people. …“The DPRK has already gained everything it needed … through an arduous struggle under the harshest sanctions regime … adopted at the instigation of the U.S. during the last several decades. It is only a forlorn hope to consider any chance that the DPRK would be shaken an inch or change its stance by the sanctions of this new kind imposed upon by the hostile forces. …“Terming [the DPRK’s defensive measures] a ‘threat to international peace and security’ is a gangster-like logic indicating that the rest of the world should either become U.S. colonies or fall victim to its aggression. …“As long as the U.S. hostile policy and nuclear threat continue, the DPRK … will never replace its self-defense nuclear deterrence on the negotiation table or flinch an inch from the road chosen by itself, the road of bolstering up the state nuclear force. …“The U.S. once waged a tragic war that plunged this land into a sea of blood and fire, and has been leaving no stone unturned to obliterate the DPRK’s ideology and system century after century. …“If the U.S. fails to act with discretion, persisting in its reckless attempts to stifle the DPRK, we will not waver or hesitate to use any form of ultimate means.“The DPRK will hold fast to the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts, the lasting banner of defending peace, and continue to march straight forward to the end of the road chosen by itself without the slightest deviation.”Stop the war threats!U.S. hands off Korea!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Retention of low VAT rate for hospitality sector welcomed in Limerick

first_imgNewsLocal NewsRetention of low VAT rate for hospitality sector welcomed in LimerickBy Alan Jacques – October 23, 2014 826 Print Linkedin Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WhatsApp FINE Gael councillor for City West, Maria Byrne, has welcomed the Government’s decision to maintain the nine per cent VAT rate for services in the tourism and hospitality sector, saying this will continue to boost trade in this industry.At the last meeting of Limerick City and County Council meeting, Cllr Byrne tabled a notice of motion calling for the support of councillors that a letter would be sent requesting the minister to consider this proposal.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The VAT rate was previously 13.5 per cent and the Government took the decision to reduce it by a third, in a bid to kick-start the tourism and hospitality sector, which had suffered over the past number of years. This lower rate has proven to work, as we’ve see steady increases in the number of tourists visiting Ireland over the past couple of years,” enthused Cllr Byrne.The Fine Gael councillor insists that this reduction has also had a significant impact on job creation in the hospitality industry. She also predicts that the decision to retain this lower VAT rate will benefit consumers, business owners and jobseekers in Limerick.“The reduced lower rate of VAT is worth €2,250 for every €50,000 turnover within the tourism sector, and that is a significant boost in an industry which operates with tight margins. This enables hospitality focused businesses in Limerick to keep their prices low and, in doing so, attract more business which requires them to take on more staff,” she explained.“It’s very important that our businesses are supported. Many of our local businesses are to be commended for staying afloat during one of Ireland’s toughest economic times. Now is the time for them to begin to flourish again and maintaining this low VAT rate will ensure that our local pubs, restaurants and hotels are supported in securing their future, continuing to grow and creating further employment,” Cllr Byrne concluded.

Sackler family to pay $4.2 billion towards opioid lawsuit settlement, documents show

first_imgdomnicky/iStockBy AARON KATERSKY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Sackler family boosted its contribution to the settlement of opioids lawsuits to $4.2 billion under a restructuring plan filed overnight by Purdue Pharma with a federal bankruptcy court in White Plains, New York.Purdue said the plan amounts to $10 billion of value for claimants and communities affected by the opioid crisis that was fueled by the company’s aggressive marketing of OxyContin, according to multiple lawsuits.Under the plan, the Sacklers would admit no wrongdoing and relinquish control of the company. Their contributions would be paid out over a decade through trusts established to disburse the proceeds of the as yet unnamed new company to emerge from bankruptcy.“Purdue has delivered a historic plan that can have a profoundly positive impact on public health by directing critically-needed resources to communities and individuals nationwide who have been affected by the opioid crisis,” said Steve Miller, chairman of Purdue’s board of directors. “The company has worked closely with a broad and diverse group of stakeholders to guarantee that billions of dollars will be used exclusively for abatement purposes and not diverted elsewhere.”The $4.2 billion of personal money offered by members of the Sackler family was a billion dollars more than offered last year but state attorneys general immediately rejected the plan.“I am disappointed in this plan. While it contains improvements over the proposal that Purdue announced and we rejected in September 2019, it falls short of the accountability that families and survivors deserve,” New York Attorney General Tish James said in a statement.In separate plea deals with the Justice Department, in 2007 and in 2020, Purdue Pharma has twice admitted to illegally marketing OxyContin and other opioid medications.The company would pay $500 million up front and the rest of the money would be paid in installments over the next decade.The Sacklers can retain control of their overseas pharmaceutical businesses for the next seven years before they’re prohibited from the sale or manufacture of opioids.The restructuring plan called for Purdue to be dissolved. All of its assets will be transferred to a newly established public benefit corporation that would, in addition to certain opioid medications, manufacture treatments for opioid dependence the antidote naloxone.“Our teams of scientists are committed to developing and delivering medications and solutions to meaningfully address the opioid crisis,” said Dr. Julie Ducharme, the company’s chief scientific officer. “We have the capability and the passion to make a substantial difference right away, and for years to come.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Has the CML changed its tune on longer tenancies?

first_imgThe Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) has backed the government’s recent housing White Paper and says there is an “increased appetite” among lenders to advance mortgages to landlords who accommodate renters on longer tenancies.The White Paper sets out how the government is planning to create more secure, longer tenancies for families that would last up to three years and give people ‘the security they need to plan for the future’, Prime Minister Theresa May says in its introduction.Although the initiative has encountered criticism from some quarters of the property industry including eMoov chief execute Russell Quirk, who described the White Paper as ‘recycled rhetoric’, it has been welcomed by most agents and consumer groups including housing charity Shelter.The CML says it is keen to assist the government as it ‘works towards a market in which those renting can find a tenancy to suit their needs’.“Lenders already contribute to the funding of private and social rented housing, as well as owner-occupation, so we welcome and are comfortable with the cross-tenure approach in today’s white paper,” says Paul Smee, the CML’s director general.“We are now ready to work with the government, and with members and others, on the detailed implementation of these proposals. We want to play our part in developing a coherent, long term plan to deliver more housing and help ensure that it is durable, affordable and in the locations and tenures that people want.”But the CML has come under fire as recently as last month for its members’ resistance to long-term tenancies. Up to half of lenders – research by Shelter revealed – are reluctant to sanction because, should the landlord default on the loan it would be difficult for the lender to then sell the property to recoup their loan by selling the property.The National Landlords Association (NLA) also believes that lenders could ‘do more to help’ and that many landlords remain on inflexible legacy mortgages.longer tenancies Shelter Council of Mortgage Lenders February 10, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
