Double house being planned in the center of Tokyo. In the surrounding area, wooden houses that survived the war are scattered and low rise buildings are densely distributed. On the other hand, a project of constructing a 22m-wide loop street of Route 4 by the adjacent building on the west side of the house is underway. The first floor space consists of small-volume units and the second floor is a unified large-volume space. They are dispersive but centripetal. The integrity of these two factors was planned for the house. This house is a proposal for a building style appropriate for the land which has two aspects, wooden house dense area and road planning.Save this picture!© Shimizu KenThe first floor is for the parents and the second for the child’s family. They live on different floors in different lifestyles while sharing a wash-basin and bathroom. Their living spaces have a totally different quality: The space for the parents is surrounded by the garden which brings a sense of comfort to them and the space for the child’s family is quite open to the town. The hanging walls and waist-high partition walls, which are necessarily created as a result of the intrusion of the first and second floor spaces into each other, have influences on the residents’ lives, creating a complementarity relation between the two floors.Save this picture!© Shimizu KenThe two-story wooden house is constructed using a conventional timber framework method. Each of the four small units of the first floor space has bearing walls on the road side and the adjacent land side and a large opening at the corner of the other two walls. Although the units cannot stand by themselves, the second floor part of the house, being on top of the first floor units, realizes the structure of the mutually-dependent first and second floor spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Mejiro Studio + Kozo KadowakiProject gallerySee allShow lessPara Eco House / Tongji University TeamArticlesMuseum and Educational Center of the Polytechnic Museum and Lomonosov Moscow State U…Articles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Mejiro Studio + Kozo Kadowaki Area Area of this architecture project Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Photographs 2010 2010 Save this picture!© Shimizu Ken+ 60 Share Japan CopyAbout this officeMejiro Studio + Kozo KadowakiOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoHousesJapanPublished on November 12, 2012Cite: “House in Mejirodai / Mejiro Studio + Kozo Kadowaki” 12 Nov 2012.

A message to the Peoples Summit from the U.S. solidarity movement on behalf of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this The following statement was issued by the International Action Center.To our sisters and brothers at the Peoples’ Summit:Mumia Abu-JamalThe progressive and revolutionary movement in the U.S. stands with the Peoples’ Summit in Panama April 9-11.  We stand with the Cuban Revolution, the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela and all those fighting against imperialism in the Americas and throughout the world.We reject Washington’s persistent hostile campaign against Venezuela’s sovereignty and demand the immediate repeal of President Obama’s March 9 decree that calls that nation a “danger” for the USA’s national security. In a country where Black lives are being taken violently every 28 hours by state or repressive forces with complete impunity, the USA has absolutely no moral authority to issue such a declaration. It is in the USA where an ongoing human rights crisis exists with the police killings of so many youth and people of color.We, therefore, expose the sheer hypocrisy of the USA that says that human rights are violated in Venezuela.In Venezuela, Leopoldo López, who is responsible for the violence in the attempted coup against President Nicolás Maduro that left 43 people dead, is being treated very well while imprisoned for the crimes he committed, having access to a gym, computer, visits, etc. In contrast, in the USA, political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has been unjustly framed up for the murder of a cop and has been in prison since 1982 for standing up against racism and police brutality, is being denied a most basic right: adequate health care in a state attempt to assassinate him.As a prisoner of the Empire, he was put on death row and it was only the people’s struggle that forced the state to cancel the death penalty and move him to general population in prison. Now, however, the state of Pennsylvania insists on executing him by denying the needed medical care.On March 30, Mumia Abu-Jamal had a medical emergency and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at a Medical Center in Pottsville, Pa. When his family and friends discovered that his health is seriously declining due to medical neglect, they immediately traveled to the hospital to learn more about his condition. Family members were first denied visitation rights and only a national campaign to demand visitation got them to see him.We would like to request your support to save Mumia’s life.  It was only the support of the people that won Mumia from the clutches of death row.  And now we need your support to make sure that the state of Pennsylvania does not kill him by medical neglect.We request that the Peoples’ Summit pass a resolution in support of Mumia Abu-Jamal, demanding immediate adequate medical attention and that Mumia not be executed by medical neglect.  Only the people and movements together can stay the hand of Washington.Long live international solidarity!  Long live the peoples of the Americas!End the blockade against Cuba!Obama: Repeal the Executive Order against Venezuela and Hands off Venezuela!Free Mumia Abu-Jamal, Oscar López Rivera and all political prisoners in the USA!last_img read more

One-time ‘homeless street drinker’ takes on new dimension to his life

first_img Previous articleIncrease in drugs and vandalism, number of traffic collisions downNext articleMunster make one change for Ospreys clash admin Advertisement Print Email Linkedin WhatsAppcenter_img Facebook NewsLocal NewsOne-time ‘homeless street drinker’ takes on new dimension to his lifeBy admin – December 17, 2010 595 Twitter “IT’S fair to say he used to drink morning noon and night, he was a messy drinker – a roaring alcoholic and could be found in the various parts of the city with a flagon of cider or cans of Dutch Gold”. The words of Brian McInerney, counsel for 58-year-old Noel Lysaght, as he offered the mitigating circumstances surrounding a “homeless street drinker,” in Limerick Circuit Court answering charges of threatening to kill a pharmacist in September 9, 2009.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, Lysaght has now been heralded as one of the “very few success stories” of the Novas Initiative as he has remained sober for five months and has poured his energy into acting as a volunteer in the kitchen of Brother Russell Home on Mulgrave Street, where he is now resident.The revelation came to light after Lysaght was charged with the offence of threatening to kill a pharmacist in Limerick city.Garda Mark Deegan said that he arrived at LC Pharmacy on Lower Gerald Griffin Street, to find two shop assistants shocked and upset after Lysaght produced an imitation gun. He threatened to “shoot him dead”, a reference to pharmacist Mark Cahill.Lysaght had become a nuisance to the shop and was barred in 2003 for his continued “antics”.Garda Deegan said that in statements provided by the two female shop assistants, they said that the accused entered the shop and waved the imitation gun.The women were “horrified” and unaware it was an imitation gun bought in a “2Euro shop”.Judge Carroll Moran heard that the background to the incident had spanned some time and that Lysaght had been aggrieved that he was barred, and had said at various times in the three weeks prior to the September 09 incident that he “was going to fix Mark and sort him out”. Lysaght was arrested 10 days after the incident after gardai identified him from CCTV footage.During questioning, Lysaght made admissions to the threats and to purchasing and producing the imitation gun. The 58-year-old grandfather had 89 previous convictions from 53 separate court appearances.Brian McInerney, counsel, said that his client was a “roaring alcoholic that would drink from noon to night” and was from a family that had been “gripped by this deadly disease,” but that “thankfully, he was in Brother Russell house and doing very well”.In mitigation, the court heard that Lysaght said he had a mock gun, pointed it at the fella that owns the pharmacy and told him he was going to shoot him.In interview, Gardai said Lysaght expressed sorrow and said he “didn’t know it was going to come to this”.Taking the stand to offer evidence of Lysaght’s life changing turnaround, Deborah Ryan, liaison officer with the Novas Initiative, told the court that the State funded body “rarely has a success story” when it comes to helping those with severe drink problems, as they more often than not, “join the viscous circle again”.She added that each resident that enters the Brother Russell home also enters into a contract and breach of that contract will see offenders evicted.“For 15 years, Noel has been with the group on and off, but since February 2010, he has been sober. People can’t fake sobriety like that and I can vouch for Noel. He is one of our very few success stories”.Noting the “massive change” in the life of Noel Lysaght, Ms Ryan added that she “had seen Noel when he was drinking, and he is a messy drunk.”His life was “chaotic” added Mr McInerney.“But now”, added Ms Ryan, “Noel is a gentleman and volunteers his time in the kitchen of Brother Russell Home. He will work from 8am to 4pm five days a week and will often be found there at 6 and 7pm making soup and helping with the outreach programme for those homeless people on the street. He has been so helpful in all aspects”.Ms Ryan added that they would have “no issue keeping Noel long term”.Judge Carroll Moran noted to the court that was it not for the sobriety of Noel Lysaght over the last five months or more, he would have imposed a three year jail sentence immediately.However, giving credit for his new attitude and clearly impressed by his efforts to date, he opted to engage the Probation Services to furnish the court with a report in connection with Noel Lysaght.Lysaght was ordered to stay sober, continue his work and connection with the Brother Russell Home and to stay away from the LC Pharmacy on Lower Gerald Griffin Street.The case was adjourned until January 28 , 2011.last_img read more

Relaxed restrictions next week looking increasingly unlikely

The origin of Arctic terrestrial and freshwater tardigrades

first_imgThe tardigrade faunas of six Arctic sites (Canadian Axel Heiberg I., east and west coasts of Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, Novaya Zemlya and the Russian Taimyr Peninsula) form, with those of northern North America, a coherent “Nearctic-Arctic” biogeographic cluster. This cluster is distinct from that of “Northern and Alpine Europe”. Few, if any, Arctic tardigrades survived Pleistocene glaciation in situ amongst ice-free refugia. Similarly, few/none moved south ahead of the advancing ice-cap into the deglaciated Palaearctic and Nearctic and subsequently returned north during the Holocene deglaciation. It is more probable that most Arctic tardigrades are derived from wind-blown Nearctic propagules that colonized the region during the Holocene.last_img read more
