Firstly, the moving panels that are integrated into the core and run along guide rails. These panels can be used to create different arrangements, such as adding an extra room for a guest, separating the kitchen from the living room area or opening the whole floor for a party. The panels have transparent sections so that the natural lighting coming through the mansard roof can reach this space.Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánSecondly, the secret trap doors that are integrated into the ceiling of the access floor and into the floor of the mezzanine and that house the rest of the domestic functions. The ceiling doors are opened with handles fitted on the walls. These handles actuate pulleys that lower part of the furniture (such as tables and the picnic benches, a swing or the hammock) or some complementary functions and objects (such as the disco ball, the fans to chill out on the hammock or an extra shelf for the guest room). In addition, the floor of the space under the roof has a series of invisible doors that can be opened to alter the functionality of the raised space where the bedroom area is (these spaces house the dressing table, the tea room and the storage spaces for the bathroom).Save this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánAll these elements are integrated within the floor and the ceiling and they appear and disappear at the user’s whim. The secret trap doors and the sliding panels complement the basic configuration, fit the needs of the moment and provide different home layout combinations.Project gallerySee allShow lessHealthcare Centre in Son Servera / PMMTSelected ProjectsTunnel Monitoring Complex Hausmannstaetten / Dietger Wissounig ArchitektenSelected Projects Share “COPY” Year:  Didomestic / elii Photographs:  Miguel de GuzmánCollaborators:María Sole Ferragamo, Miguel Galán, Pablo Martín de la CruzContractor:Dionisio Torralba ConstruccionesArchitect In Charge:Uriel Fogué, Eva Gil, Carlos PalaciosCity:MadridCountry:SpainMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Miguel de GuzmánText description provided by the architects.

Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanThe selected approach removes all obstacles from the floor to provide the greatest possible flexibility. Two basic elements are used: firstly, the central core, comprising the staircase, some shelves and the larder. The core is at the centre of the main space under the mansard roof. It connects the access floor and the space under the roof and allows the natural lighting coming through the roof into the living room. Secondly, there are two side strips for the functional elements (kitchen, bathroom, storage space and domestic appliances). 2013 Architects: elii Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/450565/didomestic-elii Clipboard + 22 Share Photographs CopyHouses•Madrid, Spain Area:  57 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/450565/didomestic-elii Clipboard CopyAbout this officeeliiOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInteriorsResidentialMadridSpainPublished on November 22, 2013Cite: “Didomestic / elii” 22 Nov 2013.

Palestinian prisoners launch massive hunger strike

first_imgWeekly sit-ins for Palestinian political prisoners have been held in the courtyard of the International Committee of the Red Cross’ Gaza office on Monday mornings since 1995.On April 17, the 43rd annual Palestinian Prisoners’ Day, over 1,500 Palestinians imprisoned by Israel on political charges launched a mass hunger strike, their largest in five years.The strike, led by imprisoned Palestinian parliamentarian Marwan Barghouti, demands basic improvements to political prisoners’ conditions. These include adequate health care, regular family visits, access to telephones, and the end of solitary confinement and “administrative detention.”While the strike has drawn most of its participants from imprisoned members of Barghouti’s Fatah movement, smaller groups of prisoners from the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine have also joined, with each organization pledging its support for the strikers and their goals.“We are firmly committed to see each battle of confrontation with the Prison Service and its instruments of repression and intelligence agencies as a collective battle,” the PFLP’s prison branch said on April 16. “Every action initiated by any faction is all of our battle.” (pflp.ps)The higher committee for Hamas detainees said on the same day: “We hail our steadfast prisoners for undertaking this strike, and we confirm that we will be following the updates around the clock, as we will never hesitate to back our prisoners in their just cause.” (hamas.ps, April 16)Barghouti explained the prisoners’ reasons for striking in an op-ed posted online by the New York Times, also on April 16, and then published in the newspaper’s international edition the next day.“This new hunger strike will demonstrate once more that the prisoners’ movement is the compass that guides our struggle, the struggle for Freedom and Dignity, the name we have chosen for this new step in our long walk to freedom,” he wrote from Hadarim prison. (nytimes.com, April 16)Their jailors responded by throwing Barghouti and dozens of other hunger strike participants into isolation, denying strikers family and legal visits, and raiding striking prison blocks with attack dogs.Israeli leaders have refused to negotiate, with war minister Avigdor Lieberman writing, “When it comes to the hunger strike … I take the approach of Margaret Thatcher.” (jpost.com, April 18) British Prime Minister Thatcher presided over the deaths of revolutionary Irish prison hunger strikers in the 1980s.April 27-30 global days of actionPalestinian supporters of the prisoners have called for a general strike across Palestine on April 27, followed by a “day of rage” against Israeli occupation forces on April 28.“The excessive practices of the Israeli occupation, particularly those of the Israel Prison Service” require that “we clash with the occupier everywhere across our homeland,” the Fatah movement said in its announcement of the mobilization on April 22. (maannews.com)Internationally, Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and other organizations are mobilizing for several global days of action starting on Thursday, the day of the general strike, and lasting through Sunday, April 30, as the hunger strike enters its third week.In New York, Samidoun activists will continue a series of weekly protests outside the Best Buy store in Manhattan’s Union Square from 5:30 p.m.. until 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 28.The store sells products made by Hewlett Packard, a major vendor to Israel’s prisons and detention centers, military and security forces, and checkpoints and settlements.Samidoun also urges supporters of the prisoners to join and organize protests elsewhere, and to call the White House (202-456-1111) to demand that the Trump administration end its support for Israel’s political imprisonment and other crimes against Palestinians.For more information and announcements of these and other activities, visit Samidoun’s website at samidoun.net and subscribe to its email newsletter at eepurl.com/XFJr9.Catron is an organizer with Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Despite extensive consultations carried out by the Working Group, during which these issues were continuously raised, we have yet to hear of any proposed action on reception conditions, including issues relating to basic needs such as food and the right to cook,” said Doras Luimní chief executive Karen McHugh.Around 250 people, including some 50 children, are currently living at Knockalisheen direct provision centre while their applications for refugee status are being processed.center_img Advertisement Doras concerns about ongoing safety and wellbeing of residents in Direct Provision during Covid-19 Pandemic WhatsApp TAGSAsylum seekersDirect provisionDoras LuimníKaren McHughKnockalisheenlimerick Free Céilí Afro Dabke workshops and performance Changes to the Student Support Scheme for people living in Direct Provision Twitter There’s still a job to be done on the right to worklast_img read more

The Griffins were longtime and dedicated members of the Cattlewomen’s and Cattlemen’s associations and hosted the “Father of the Year” banquet at their farm in the Orion community each June.“The Cattlewomen planned to break with tradition this year and honor Jewel as the ‘Person of the Year,’” said Tammy Powell, Cattlewomen co-president. “When we asked Jewel if she would mind if we recognized her, she said she would be honored. It was our plan for Jewel to be here with us. But God had other plans for her.”Powell read a scripture from Psalms 30:5. “For his anger lasts only a moment but his favor lasts a lifetime. Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”“When I hear this scripture I think of Jewel,” Powell said. “Jewel was a favored one – one who believed. And, yes, we did weep and cry, but we know that joy came to Jewell.“‘Miss Jewel’ was a servant – not just to God and her faith, but also to Pike County.  To have a servant’s heart is truly something for which to be admired.  We would all be much better people if we followed in Jewell’s footsteps.”Griffin was involved in many county organizations, including the Pike County Cattlewomen’s Association, the Pike County Farm-City Committee, and the Pike County Women’s Committee of the Farmer’s Federation.“Through these she led us in providing service to our community,” Powell said. “She believed in serving others.“As our ‘Person of the Year,’ Jewell is recognized especially by serving the youth of our county. Even though she was not a biological parent, she worked diligently in so many ways to make sure that young people were recognized.“For many years, she took agricultural coloring books to all of the second graders in Pike County.  There’s no telling how many children she introduced to agriculture through this service she provided.”Through her Cattlewomen’s involvement, Griffin helped raise funding for the Cattlewomen’s Winnie Lee Scholarship program.“She knew that education is so very important and believed in our scholarship program to help young people further their education,” said Heather Minton, Cattlewomen co-president. “She also believed in the youth calf shows and in young people learning about the cattle industry – and she showed this by working at every activity that we had for youth.“Miss Jewel was instrumental in the Pike County Homemakers Council providing funding to send youth to the National 4-H Citizenship Washington Focus program. She felt that young people needed to learn about our government and could do so through this forum.” Book Nook to reopen Published 8:50 pm Monday, June 9, 2014 Latest Stories Print Article Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Email the author By Jaine Treadwellcenter_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Skip Jewel Griffin named ‘person of the year’ Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder You Might Like Show and tell: Kiwanis Club holds fourth annual car show (PHOTO GALLERY) The Kiwanis Club’s fourth annual car show was held Saturday morning.MESSENGER PHOTOS | MONA MOORE Troy Kiwanis Club exceeded expectations… read more Sponsored Content Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are…last_img read more

first_imgiStock(PANAMA CITY, Fla.) — One year ago on Thursday, Hurricane Michael became the strongest hurricane to make landfall in the United States since 1992 and the second strongest to ever hit the Gulf Coast.The Category 5 storm killed at least 59 people in the U.S., damaged thousands of homes and structures and left over a million homes without power as it made landfall near Mexico Beach and Panama City, Florida, before moving through Georgia, Alabama and the Carolinas. One year after the devastating storm, communities are still trying to recover.Kimberly Kennedy, a Mexico Beach resident and condo manager, has returned home, but she said that the condo building in which her family took shelter is still being repaired. In fact, many buildings and businesses are only now starting to open up, and many of them aren’t even permanent.“So, you know, it might be a food truck instead of a restaurant. … There’s no homes to live in,” Kennedy said, adding that although she would’ve done some things differently when the hurricane hit, it’s made her stronger.Talia Butcher, of Panama City, survived the storm with her husband by swimming through the storm surge, which reached 14 feet. She credited their survival on a pair of life jackets that kept them above water. Today, she says she still experiences trauma from that day.“I’m still scared of wind because that’s what was taking everything away at that moment in time,” Butcher said.When ABC News first met Butcher, the day after the storm, her house had been destroyed and she was trying to get in touch with her parents to let them know her and her husband were safe. A year later, she’s living in a trailer provided by FEMA.“I’m very blessed to have it by all means,” Butcher said. “[At] least I have something to sleep [in] at night. But I still want my own home again.”For Butcher, the loss of her home has only been compounded by the loss of her husband, who died of cancer in September.“I’m starting from scratch all over again, and I think that’s what’s even harder,” she said. “I don’t have Robbie, my little soulmate, to keep pushing me. My niece tells me every day, ‘Aunt Talia, it’s going to be OK.’”Walking through Panama City, storefronts are still boarded up. Mobile homes and trailers, despite some being heavily damaged, are still occupied. And many people who are looking for new places to live must balance keeping a job with trying to find new places to live, according to Ross Whitley, chief meteorologist for ABC News Panama City affiliate WMBB-TV.Amid the destruction, however, there is hope. Shelly Summers, who lives about an hour away from Panama City in Youngstown, has opened up her backyard to survivors of the storm. She said that after she saw tent cities popping up on the news, she decided to open up her own.The community has lost itself and a lot of people feel [like] they don’t matter,” Summers said. “They do to me. They do to my husband. They do to my daughter and they do to everybody here.”Summer said she has housed over 100 people in her backyard to date. One of those people is Georgia Richter, who said she sought shelter at Summers’ home after bouncing from one hotel to another following the hurricane. Eventually, she said, it became too expensive.“I was stable before the hurricane hit, and now I’m just trying to survive and get through the day,” Richter said. “There needs to be more housing that’s affordable. … It was a pretty poor economy before the storm and now it’s gotten even worse, and I think it’s a struggle for everyone right now.”Whitley said that despite the challenges his community faces, he’s hopeful that eventually the city will recover and people will come back to live there. Kennedy felt the same but also mentioned that they still need help.“We’re still recovering; don’t forget about us,” she said. “Hello, we’re still down here. We might be little, but we are still here and we still matter.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
