It was formed with the idea of ​​a tropical house, in which the space and usage of materials can withstand the harsh climate in Danang city, the central of Vietnam. – The Architects’ conception before designing the house was to create a small house inside a larger house, which means the larger shape would cover and protect smaller cubes inside and they were linked together by stairs and floor spaces. Save this picture!© Quang Dam- The problems of all townhouses in Vietnam consist of the narrow area, adjacent construction, lack of natural light and wind. Among them, the lack of natural light and wind is the most important problem to be solved. Therefore, DT house is arranged with a wide front yard with two staircases linking the two floors in order to create a huge navigable space inside the house as well as create an ideal source of light and natural wind. The air inside the house, as a result, is always circulated like a lung.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Quang Dam- Tree plays an integral part in the house. It is considered a highlight for the floor spaces and helps create a sense of relaxation and clearance in a small-area house. Above all, the trees in the house can be seen as a link between the floors so family members can still see each other and chat in an open and closed space like this.- You will always be comfortable in this house since the natural energy sources in combination with the local, raw and friendly materials are available and such things can provide the house with an ideal temperature and neutral color.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!ModelSave this picture!© Quang Dam- The house is the home of a small family, who talked to us a lot about the project before constructing. They said they wanted to live in a house with a lot of vitality, friendliness and especially an engaged house. Fortunately, after the building was completed, they came to meet us with a smile on their faces then thanked us for bringing them back to the house of their childhood where their souls are raised. We hope that this new home will continue to nurture that happiness.Save this picture!© Quang DamProject gallerySee allShow lessLolly-Laputan Educational Restaurant / Wutopia LabSelected ProjectsTaihu New Town Wujun Kindergarten / Tus-DesignSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/919152/dt-house-iz-architects Clipboard Year:  Save this picture!© Quang Dam+ 28Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyAbout this officeIZ ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVietnamPublished on June 18, 2019Cite: “DT House / IZ Architects” 17 Jun 2019.

Why Debbie Dogskin died

first_imgAs propane prices soar, 25 states have declared an energy emergency, but it came too late for Debbie Dogskin. And it’s not just the extreme cold that puts thousands of poor people at risk.The Fort Yates, North Dakota, mobile home where Debbie Dogskin was found dead of exposure to extreme cold. The temperature inside was 1 degree below zero Fahreneheit and the propane tank was empty.Debbie Dogskin, an Indigenous woman in her fifties, froze to death in a mobile home after the propane tank ran dry. This tragedy has shed a light on the growing propane shortages and price gouging that are impacting impoverished rural communities across the U.S.Dogskin fell asleep and died on Feb. 4 when temperatures inside the house where she was staying dropped to 1 degree below zero. She lived on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, which straddles North and South Dakota.After prices skyrocketed this winter, a state of emergency had recently been declared by tribal leaders because fixed-income residents of about 5,000 homes heated by propane could no longer afford the fuel.By the end of January, the average U.S. residential price for propane was $3.90 per gallon — more than double that of a year ago and the highest since the U.S. Energy Information Administration started tracking prices in 1990. In some areas, prices have skyrocketed from $1.50 to $5. On the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, which depends on propane being trucked in, prices peaked at $4.65 a gallon.Federal budget cuts have also reduced funding for fuel assistance by 40 percent over the past few years. A program to help low-income families on the reservation had shrunk by $1 million since last winter.The Washington-based Propane Education and Research Council estimates that over 14 million families in the U.S. use propane to power furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, grills, fireplaces and appliances. Propane is also used by 865,000 farms to fuel heaters that dry crops and warm animal enclosures, and run irrigation pumps and other farm equipment.Shortages in the midst of plentyPropane is made from processing crude oil and natural gas. The shale gas boom has brought a glut of domestic propane to the Northeast, Southwest and most recently to the Bakken shale region of North Dakota and Montana. Ironically, this is not far from where Dogskin died.Over the last decade, fracking for natural gas was promoted on the basis that it would produce sufficient energy supplies to lessen reliance on imported fuels. Widespread promotion of fracking resulted in overproduction of natural gas, driving prices down while greatly reducing imports from foreign sources that could not compete.However, the inherent capitalist drive for profits also prompted energy companies to ship more U.S.-produced fuel overseas, where they can get a higher price, thus cutting into readily available domestic supplies. Exports of U.S.-produced propane soared to 9.1 million barrels in August 2013 — nearly double the amount shipped abroad the year before.Another significant contributing factor to the propane shortages in the Midwest has been that the transport infrastructure is overrun with oil shipments. Increased production of crude oil from fracking in Canada, Texas and North Dakota has resulted in a 400 percent increase in crude-by-rail shipments since 2005. The North Dakota Mineral Resources Department estimates that in 2014 around 90 percent of the state’s crude oil production — almost 1 million barrels per day — will move by freight rail.Trains entering the region also carry boxcars filled with sand to shale fields in North Dakota. ”It takes 25 railcars of sand, on average, to frack one well,” says Bryan Shinn, U.S. Silica’s chief executive. (Wall Street Journal, Dec. 2, 2013)Crude-by-rail shipments are also a contributing factor to propane shortages in the Northeast. In July 2013, a fiery rail disaster resulted from the derailment of a train carrying crude oil in Lac-Megantic, Quebec. The derailment led to a ban on the movement of hazardous materials through the town, essentially cutting off a major route that transported propane to Maine, where 70 to 90 percent of the propane used had arrived by rail via Quebec.Another factor cited for the propane shortages is repairs to the Cochin propane pipeline that services the Upper Midwest. However, Kinder Morgan Inc., which operates the Cochin, says that shipments of propane to terminals in North Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa more than tripled in November 2013.Crisis used to deregulate transportIn response to the propane shortages, officials in 25 states have declared energy emergencies related to propane shipments. In Michigan and five other states, governors signed executive orders exempting truck drivers from state and federal limits on how many hours and consecutive days they can drive commercial motor vehicles.This is sure to increase the risk of accidents and injuries on the road but will do little to stop the export of domestic propane or decrease overproduction of crude oil and gas that is clogging up rail transport. The executive orders also fail to stem the all-too-obvious price gouging by dealers taking advantage of a colder than usual winter to get as much profit as possible during the shortage.It doesn’t have to be this way. Since 2005, Venezuela has donated more than 235 million gallons of heating oil to more than 1.8 million people in the U.S. On Feb. 5, the CITGO-Venezuela Heating Oil Program announced the launch of its ninth annual shipment of oil to assist families, homeless shelters and Native tribes in 25 states.Were it not for U.S. corporations’ drive for profits, Debbie Dogskin could be alive today.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

COVID-19 Can’t Completely Shut Down National Ag Day

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Mar 23, 2020 SHARE COVID-19 Can’t Completely Shut Down National Ag DayHappy National Ag Day, Indiana! COVID-19 is making Ag Day a bit more difficult to celebrate this year, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try.National Ag Day is a day dedicated to increasing public awareness about agriculture’s vital role in our society. This should be even more apparent now as agriculture has been identified as a critical infrastructure sector by the Department of Homeland Security during the COVID-19 pandemic.National Ag Day events held in Washington, D.C. and around the country have been canceled due to the pandemic, but organizers are still hopeful the message gets out. Isabella Chism is a member of the American Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee and immediate past chair of the National Ag Day committee.“We’re actually pretty excited now that we’ve gotten past the disappointment because we’ve got a lot of extra opportunities for people on AgDay.org. We have a social media posts for them to use, videos, slideshows, static posts as well that will talk about agriculture.”Chism says they’re encouraging farmers to share their story and talk about what they do each day. Another idea she recommends is to, “Read an ag accurate book online. Do a Facebook Live. Do something on YouTube like that…people are starting to respond. I’ve noticed some picking up.”Chism believes this COVID-19 situation has led to more appreciation for farmers from the public.“We continue to do the best that we can to not only feed our families but feed the rest of the nation, and in normal times, the rest of the world. So, what we see now though is a greater appreciation that people are truly appreciating what the farmers are doing. They’re starting to realize more that there is that direct link from the farm to the grocery store to their table.”Chism also serves as Indiana Farm Bureau 2nd Vice President.Information about National Ag Day that can be shared online can be found here.

For asserting this, the government has relied on a judgment of the Supreme Court wherein it was held that when a private vehicle passes through a public road, the public has the opportunity to “approach the private vehicle” and have access to it.In light of the Delhi Government’s submission, a counsel appearing in connected matters also informed the Court that the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare itself has stated that any person sitting in a car need not wear a mask.The Court adjourned the hearing till January 7, when it will also hear other petitions on similar issuesSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The court added that the defence of the accused is not to be considered at this stage, and framed the charge against the accused for the offence under Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act.The Rajasthan High Court, allowing a revision petition, discharged the accused of the alleged offence under Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act. In appeal before the Supreme Court, the state contended that the High Court has committed a grave error in evaluating the transcript/evidence on merits which at the stage of considering the application for discharge is not permissible.The bench noted that while discharging the accused, the High Court has gone into the merits of the case and has considered whether on the basis of the material on record, the accused is likely to be convicted or not. The High Court has considered in detail the transcript of the conversation between the complainant and the accused which exercise at this stage to consider the discharge application and/or framing of the charge is not permissible at all, the bench added.”The High Court was required to consider whether a prima facie case has been made out or not and whether the accused is required to be further tried or not. At the stage of framing of the charge and/or considering the discharge application, the mini trial is not permissible. At this stage, it is to be noted that even as per Section 7 of the PC Act, even an attempt constitutes an offence. Therefore, the High Court has erred and/or exceeded in virtually holding a mini trial at the stage of discharge application..

City holding info session on proposed massive Collegetown project

first_img Your Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: Matt Butler As it is currently proposed, the project would include 440 housing units, 73,424 square feet of commercial office space and 33,212 square feet of retail space, with more space for industrial and community uses. It is slated to cost $145 million in total for local development firm Novarr-Mackesey. Due to Collegetown zoning restrictions, the project will need a planned unit development approval, which normally allow projects to violate zoning if they bring enough community benefit to the local area to outweigh the zoning concerns.The public will be able to hear more about the project at the information session on Monday, Dec. 7, scheduled at 5:30 p.m. The link for more information about the livestream, which will be hosted on the City of Ithaca’s YouTube page, is available here.The full PUD application is available here.

Sergeant involved in Breonna Taylor’s death, her boyfriend recount details

first_imgLouisville Metro Police DepartmentBy ENJOLI FRANCIS, STEVE OSUNSAMI, KELLY MCCARTHY, SABINA GHEBREMEDHIN and STEPHANIE WASH, ABC News(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — New audio has emerged from the investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor, who was shot at home by police during the execution of a no-knock warrant.Newly released interviews with police and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who spoke to authorities hours after he survived the encounter that killed Taylor at their home on March 13, reinforce that the couple had no idea who was attempting to break into the apartment that night.Walker told Public Integrity Unit officials, who investigate officer-involved shootings, why he fired a shot inside their Springfield Drive apartment.“It’s a loud boom at the door. First thing she said was, ‘Who is it?’ No response,” he said.“We both get up, start putting on clothes, another knock at the door. She’s like, ‘Who is it?’ Loud, at the top of her lungs. No response,” Walker, 27, said. “I grab my gun, which is legal, like I’m licensed to carry, everything. I’ve never even fired my gun outside of a range. I’m scared to death.”After another knock at the door, Walker said Taylor yelled “at the top of her lungs,” but there was “no response, no anything.” Walker added that he and Taylor put on clothes to answer the door, which then came “off the hinges.”“I just let off one shot. Like, I still can’t see who it is or anything. So now the door’s, like, flying open,” he continued. “I let off one shot, and then all of a sudden there’s a whole lot of shots and we like we both just dropped to the ground.”Taylor, 26, who worked for Louisville Metro Emergency Medical Services as a licensed EMT, was killed when police returned fire.Officers had executed a no-knock entry “due to the nature of how these drug traffickers operate,” according to the arrest warrant obtained by ABC News.Taylor was accused of accepting USPS packages for an ex-boyfriend whom police were investigating as an alleged drug trafficker who used her address, according to the warrant.Newly released video showed the moment Walker was arrested in the parking lot of their apartment. Initially, authorities charged him with attempting to kill police officers, but those charges were dismissed.On Thursday, ABC News obtained Walker’s audio statement to police from his attorney. His lawyer also released another audio interview, conducted March 25, with the highest-ranking officer who was at the couple’s front door when Taylor was shot to death.In the audio, Walker could be heard expressing concern for the officer he shot. “[Is] the police officer that got hit OK?” he says in the audio.At one point he says that he aimed down when he fired.“Yeah, like, because I wouldn’t, of course … I don’t need to kill anybody. … If I could just get you out of here just by you hearing that,” he said.When investigators asked Sgt. Jon Mattingly, who with officers Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison used a ram to break open the door and were involved in Taylor’s shooting, whether he could remember the name of the target on the search warrant, he said “not offhand.”Mattingly also said during the interview, which happened 12 days after the fatal incident, that the officers did not initially announce who they were when they started banging on the door just after midnight.“The first banging on the door, [we] did not announce,” he said. “I think after that we did. … After that, each one of them said, ‘Police, come to the door. Search warrant. Police, search warrant.’”Walker, however, told police that he didn’t hear police saying this.“All can hear is a knock at the door,” he said. “Even if somebody was saying something on the other side, you probably couldn’t hear them. But as loud as we were screaming to say who it is, I know whoever will be on the other side of the door could hear us.”Once inside Taylor’s home, Mattingly recalled, “I could see enough to see a male on the right. A female on the left. Could identify their faces.”“But I could actually see the handgun in his hand,” he said. “I remember seeing the barrel of that soon as we turned that corner.”The lawsuit, filed in Jefferson District Court on April 27 by attorneys Sam Aguiar and Lonita Baker, seeks damages for battery, wrongful death, excessive force, negligence and gross negligence. Hankison, Cosgrove and Mattingly are named as defendants in the suit filed by Aguiar and Baker on behalf of Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer.“The recorded statements of Kenny Walker and Sergeant Jonathan Mattingly released today clearly reveal that there has been a conspiracy to cover up Breonna’s killing since day one,” Aguiar, Baker and their co-counsel, renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump, said in a statement Thursday. “They substantiate what we’ve maintained all along: that police did not announce themselves when they broke into the residence with a battering ram and released a shower of gunfire into the apartment, killing Breonna, that the warrant and its execution were based on erroneous information and that Louisville police actively worked to cover up Breonna’s brutal murder.”Hankison, who fired the shots that killed Taylor, was terminated from the Louisville Metro Police Department in late June, with Police Chief Robert J. Schroeder writing in a letter that he “displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life” by firing 10 shots upon entering Taylor’s home unannounced.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

NJ state senator/mayor calls Trump a ‘monster’ at immigration event

first_imgUNION CITY – On Wednesday evening, the city of Union City hosted a seminar on immigrants’ rights. The densely populated city is home to a sizeable population from Latin America, particularly Cuba.The city has undertaken various initiatives in the wake of the president’s crackdown on undocumented immigrants, including declaring itself a “sanctuary city” two weeks ago. A “sanctuary city” is one in which officials will not direct police to work with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who are randomly looking for immigrants. (They will still help look for a suspect in a serious crime.) Nearby Jersey City has also voted to give itself that status. × Upon taking the office of president in January, Donald Trump said he’d crack down on undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes. But many are fearful that customs officials will stop anyone they happen to find along the way.Undocumented immigrants aren’t all people who slipped into the country illegally. Some got a work permit for a job and then lost the job. Some are foreign students who stayed longer, and some were visitors who had a child while in this country.Wednesday afternoon, at a well-attended immigrants’ rights event for town residents, Union City Mayor and State Senator Brian Stack said to the attendees, “We’ll overcome the monster that’s doing what he does to you.” On Thursday, Stack confirmed by phone that the “monster” he was referring to is Trump.“I was, and his policies,” he said via phone.Earlier Wednesday, residents attending another city event related to immigration said they are fearful.“You live without knowing what could happen to you,” said a man at City Hall who asked to be anonymous, and who acknowledged being undocumented. “Today, he [the president] says something; tomorrow he says something worse.”Trump has warned that “sanctuary cities” stand to lose certain federal funding.Nearby, the mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who joined following the 9/11 attacks, also declared his city a sanctuary city.For more coverage, see this weekend’s Union City Reporter in print or starting Sunday at hudsonreporter.com.last_img read more
