Folsom Tower / Studio Gang

Inspired by the bay windows of older local buildings such as 450 Sutter Street, Studio Gang have added a twist (literally) to the typology with incremental rotations of the 90-degree bays running vertically up the facade.Read on for more details of the designSave this picture!Courtesy of Studio Gang Architects”What I like about tall buildings (aesthetically) is what you do with the height, the incremental moves along the way,” Jeanne Gang told the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s not just the extrusion of a single form from bottom to top.” The combined effect of these twists is an undulating facade which ripples its way up the structure.The proposed height for the building is 400 foot, however San Francisco zoning regulations currently limit the height of buildings in the area to a mere 300 foot. To gain approval, these zoning restrictions would have to be overturned by the city’s Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors. Fortunately, the Citizen Advisory Commission already seem receptive to the idea, voting 7-1 in favour of continued study for both 300- and 400-foot versions of the design.The exterior skin of the building will be completed in masonry tiles, however Gang added that the precise material is still being researched: “We want something light in color, whether it’s terra-cotta or something else. I’ve been coming through the Bay Area for years, and it’s so light and colorful. That’s the feel I wanted.”If approved, the earliest possible date for the start of construction is pegged at 2016.Story via the San Francisco ChronicleArchitectsStudio GangLocationFolsom Street, San Francisco, CA, United StatesProject Year2014PhotographsCourtesy of Studio Gang ArchitectsBioCasa 82 / Rosario Picciotto + WelldomSelected ProjectsThe Power of Paint: Three Case Studies on Colour in ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!Courtesy of Studio Gang ArchitectsWritten by Rory Stott Share Projects ArchDaily “COPY” Folsom Tower / Studio Gang Folsom Tower / Studio GangSave this projectSaveFolsom Tower / Studio Gang “COPY” CopyAbout this officeStudio GangOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsSan FranciscoResidentialHousingUnited StatesPublished on July 11, 2014Cite: Rory Stott. “Folsom Tower / Studio Gang” 11 Jul 2014.

New build-your-own charity Web shop service launched

first_imgNew build-your-own charity Web shop service launched Tagged with: Digital Trading About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Positive Change have launched a new facility to enable voluntary groups and charities the opportunity to raise money through their own Web shop.The system pulls together a range of affiliate programmes from merchants who are prepared to pay Web site owners a fee for each sale or registration they can generate. Positive Change will create and manage a shop customised to the charity which then promotes it to its members and supporters: by shopping online via the site they will earn income for the charity.Positive Change offers to create the site for free, but makes its money by taking a small percentage of the commission each charity generates from the participating merchants. In other words, Positive Change only earns an income if the charity generates an income. However, it earns a second tier commission, so this does not reduce the amount that the charity receives from the merchant. Advertisement Of course charities could approach these merchants direct, but Positive Change hopes its ready-made shop offer will persuade them not to.Affiliate marketing-based charity Web shops have been around since 1997, with Eyegive (subsequently iGive.com) in the USA being one of the first. Many others followed, and there are still some in the UK, but it is a difficult online fundraising model to make a success with. Positive Change’s approach is to emphasise the ethical nature of its business and of those merchants it partners with. Indeed, if you follow the link from their example Web shop you reach their site called UK Ethical Affiliates. Ultimately the model relies on the charity promoting the Web shop to its supporters both regularly and in a sustained manner.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  28 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 6 January 2004 | Newslast_img read more

It also aims to raise awareness of the links between losing weight and reducing the risk of developing some types of cancer.This year more than 80,000 bags were donated – an 11% rise on 2015 and a 113% rise on 2014. The most successful area in 2016 were the groups in the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire district, who raised £97,759 with 3864 bags.With each bag collected worth around £25, the Clothes Throw campaign has now raised £5.8m since it launched in 2013.Slimming World marketing co-ordinator Johanna Mather, who manages the national fundraising drive, said:“We’re absolutely delighted to have broken the £2million barrier this year. Not only is the Clothes Throw a perfect opportunity for Slimming World members to celebrate their slimming success and the fact they’ll never need their ‘before’ clothes again, it is also vital to spread the message that keeping a healthy weight could reduce the risk of developing ten different types of cancer – raising awareness of this fact is a key aim of the partnership overall.”Slimming World also runs a number of other fundraising campaigns. Slimming World does Race for Life encourages Slimming World groups to hold their own activity-based event. The campaign has run for three years and will be repeated this month.So far, Slimming World does Race for Life events have raised more than £555,000 towards the fundraising total. In January 2014, Slimming World also launched a charity donation box, encouraging members to donate the 5p change from their weekly group fees. This activity has so far raised £109,000.

Venezuela, Mexico and the media

first_imgThe U.S. corporate media demonize Venezuela’s government while it prettifies the Mexican regime. Consider this:People in some Venezuelan cities this spring, complaining of food and other shortages, seized goods from markets. The corporate media reported these with sympathy. They blamed Venezuela’s government for food shortages. They reported that five people died during the “food riots,” without clarifying who killed them.The Venezuelan government said the deaths had nothing to do with the “food riots.”In the city of Nochixtlán in Oaxaca state in Mexico, police opened fire with live ammunition at anti-government protesters and killed 13 people, mostly Indigenous, wounded 100 others and “disappeared” another 20.Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is a U.S. collaborator in the NAFTA trade deal, the “anti-drug war” and the “anti-terror war.” The Mexican army and police of the different states fire on protesters regularly.With these facts in mind, it is revealing to see how the corporate media and U.S. politicians handled the two different scenarios described above.The New York Times, Forbes Magazine, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, National Public Radio, Fox News and most of the networks gave ample publicity to the “food riots” in Venezuela and to 400 arrests. While these media often call people in rebellion a “mob” and paint them as dangerous — remember how they wrote of Baltimore and Ferguson, Mo., where Black youth were involved — they were sympathetic to Venezuela’s “rioters.” The media presented Venezuela as teetering on the brink of chaos and desperately needing a U.S.-imposed regime change.The fewer reports on Mexico in the same media gave the point of view of the authorities, who claimed the demonstrators shot at police first. There was no attempt to fault the Mexican government for its policies toward workers or Indigenous peoples. Donald Trump continues to slander Mexican workers, but no one in the U.S. government or media is calling the Mexican government a “national security threat.”Nor is Secretary General Luis Almagro of the Organization of American States trying to whip up all of Latin America against Peña Nieto the way he did against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.Monica Moorehead, Workers World Party’s 2016 presidential candidate, commented, “Our election campaign’s 10-point program very much applies to the developments in both Venezuela and Mexico. It reads in part: ‘We oppose all U.S. wars, invasions, occupations and drone attacks, regardless of the media lies and justifications.’“The mainstream media systematically lie because they are owned and controlled by big-business interests which pit workers against other workers in order to make profits.“In reporting events in Venezuela, the media, in siding with the U.S.-backed oligarchy who make up the opposition, will attempt to demonize the anti-imperialist Bolivarian government. In Oaxaca, Mexico, the media will downplay the brutal police and army repression of a united, militant struggle of teachers, the Indigenous and public-sector workers demanding an end to overwhelming poverty rooted in capitalist austerity.“What is happening in both countries is an important reminder that the mainstream media are an instrument of the oppressive capitalist state apparatus.“It also reminds us that the working class in the United States should stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers who are fighting for the same human needs against a capitalist system whose ability to exploit labor knows no borders.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Haitians demand: ‘Trump must go!’

first_imgGross insults and threats of deportation have inflamed the Haitian community.Washington, D.C. — Haitians and their supporters rallied in front of the White House on May 19 to protest Trump’s racism and deportations, despite a Secret Service attempt to shut the rally down.The protest in Washington’s Lafayette Park was called by the 1804 Movement for All Immigrants, a coalition of many different organizations and individuals. 1804 refers to the year Haiti declared independence.The Trump administration is stripping temporary protected status (TPS) from hundreds of thousands of immigrants who have fled disasters in Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sudan. Mass deportations are threatened.On Jan. 11, the eve of the eighth anniversary of the devastating Haitian earthquake, Trump, in a burst of disgusting imperialist malice, referred to Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations as “shithole” countries.The 1804 coalition was immediately organized and called a demonstration in New York City on Jan. 19. Despite the freezing weather, more than a thousand people marched across the Brooklyn Bridge to a Trump building on Wall Street.Among the demands of the 1804 coalition are that Trump apologize to the countries he so grossly insulted; permanent residency for all TPS holders; U.S. and U.N. reparations to Haiti; and a stop to police terror against Black and Brown communities. The coalition also denounced the U.S., Israeli and Saudi war and aggression against Iran and Syria.Buses came to the Washington rally from both Brooklyn and New Jersey. Co-chairing the rally were Ray Laforest, a union organizer, and Kerbie Joseph from the Party for Socialism and Liberation.Speaking across from the White House built by enslaved people, Marie Paule Florestal challenged Trump’s racism and bigotry. Florestal, a teacher and union activist, was a key organizer of the event.Other speakers included longtime Haitian activists Florence Jean-Joseph and Georgette Delinois, as well as a representative of the United African Congress and Kim Ives of Haïtí Liberté newspaper.Eugene Puryear of PSL described how Haitians not only fought for their own liberation from slavery, but also aided Simón Bolívar to liberate much of Latin America.Calling Trump “just a human toilet spewing hate,” Lee Patterson from Workers World Party-Baltimore demanded freedom for political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. He pointed out that the rally was being held on “the birthday of the great revolutionary leader Malcolm X — assassinated by COINTELPRO and the CIA.”Patterson also called for freeing the MOVE 9 and Leonard Peltier. WWP members from Baltimore, Washington and New York City attended the event.Even though the 1804 coalition had a permit, Secret Service agents cleared Lafayette Park toward the end of the rally, suppressing the group’s First Amendment rights.The power of the people forced the park to be reopened and the rally resumed. Berthony Dupont, editor of Haïtí Liberté, was the final speaker.Stop the deportations! Reparations for Haiti!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Dylan Thomas back from injury, signs with TCU

first_imgprintEvery year, college football teams across the nation rebuild their rosters during recruiting season and TCU is bringing one athlete from just down the road.Dylan Thomas, a three-star athlete recruit from Paschal High School, signed his national letter of intent Wednesday, locking in his choice to attend TCU in the fall. Early in his senior season however, Thomas tore his MCL, ending his senior campaign.Thomas injured his leg in the fourth game of Paschal’s season, having already scored 14 touchdowns for the Panthers. It took 10 weeks for Thomas to be able to run again.Despite the injury ending his season though, he said he thinks it helps prepare him to join the team at TCU.“It made me a lot stronger as a young adult,” said Thomas. “Trying to push myself through something, not just giving up so easily. You have to go [to rehab] every time you’re supposed to go, do the things they tell you to do at home.”TCU wasn’t always the location where Thomas thought he would end up. The senior athlete recruit also received an offer from SMU and considered going there to move a bit farther from home.Thomas credits TCU Coaches Doug Meacham and Zarnell Fitch for convincing him that TCU was the best place for him.“They really reached out to me and let me know that they were thinking about me,” said Thomas.He said that Meacham would come to a few of his basketball games to show his support for Thomas and his rehabilitation.Thomas’ signing helps bring TCU to one of its top ranked recruiting classes in school history, ending up ranked No. 21 nationally according to rivals.com Facebook Linkedin Facebook Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/ Paschal Baseball sets high hopes for the season, conference play ReddIt Twitter Linkedin + posts Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/ Twitter TCU’s home field advantage: One of the best in the Big 12center_img Kevin Petershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kevin-peters/ Previous articleMen’s golf looks to build off last season’s successNext articleLocal ice cream shop makes a hop, skip and a jump to better serve community Kevin Peters RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Kevin is a senior sports broadcasting major from Rockton, Illinois.
