An extraordinary residential house NEW GROVE was designed by the architectural studio Šebo Lichý in cooperation with acclaimed Slovak architect Drahan Petrovič, who worked for several years in Vancouver. In this project they have applied the principles of the Canadian housing and created a very first project of its kind in Slovakia, which gives clients the opportunity to design and customize their  own apartment. The architectural concept is based on the principle of flexible housing units to produce a virtually unlimited number of variations.Save this picture!© Triaska StefanovicThe result is a fresh, modern and original construction, which revives the locality, improves family living in the largest Slovak housing estate and elevates it to a new level. Clients can choose the number of bathrooms, number of rooms, open and connected living room with kitchen, design a loft or partition the space. Flexible concept also allows to change living space in the future. But what makes this project even more interesting is that clients can design their own interior as well as exterior. By the beginning of the construction it was possible to select either the number or size of windows or balconies. This created a distinctive facade design with various balconies and loggias, which looks very clean and pleasant.Save this picture!SectionNEW GROVE consists of two residential towers connected by a common footstool, which is composed of smaller retail outlets. It is rather a chamber project with 72 apartments, one- to five-room. 83 parking spaces are located on one above ground and one underground floor. There are also storage spaces for each apartment. Entrances from the street and to the garages are barrier-free. Access to the apartments is provided by two core units with stairs and lifts.Save this picture!© Triaska StefanovicThe project is situated in a location with good public facilities, shops, schools, densely covered with public transport and various options for leisure-time and recreational activities. There is a racecourse, Danube embankment and park. Architects decided to elevate this exceptional natural environment and planted the building elegantly in the surrounding greenery. The entire base is lined with facing panels made of natural material, the balconies as well. Architects have managed to not only visually link the housing with the surrounding greenery, but let in sun and light to the whole neighborhood. As a result, there are pleasant sunny, airy and spacious apartments with spectacular views. Architecture of the apartment building NEW GROVE is unique, pioneering and especially based on real needs and wishes of future apartment owners.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow less9 Projects That Feature Eye-Catching WindowsArchitecture NewsTerritory Without Ground: Designing in the Sahara DesertArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Starohájska 10, 851 02 Petržalka, SlovakiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgThe focus of attention was on the way thousands of cops turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio. Their movement is an undemocratic, semi-fascist manifestation of defiance.New York, Jan. 4 — Over the past nine days, two police funerals in New York got massive coverage in the media, showing ruling class support for the cops. Both funerals were also political demonstrations by the police, demanding to continue their policy of unrestrained racist brutality against oppressed people.The first, on Dec. 27, for Officer Rafael Ramos, had the character of a state funeral. The White House sent Vice President Joseph Biden to represent President Obama. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio took the podium, as well as Police Commissioner William Bratton.A week later on Jan. 4, at the funeral for Officer Wenjian Liu, FBI head James Comey represented the Justice Department. Cuomo could not come because his father, Mario Cuomo, had just died. But De Blasio and Bratton both spoke.Both times, CNN reported, more than 1,100 cops from all over the country were flown in for the funerals free of charge by JetBlue. The media reported that 20,000 cops attended the first funeral and 10,000 attended the second. The politicians and the police commissioner vied with each other to manufacture sympathy for the cops slain on Dec. 20 and to heap praise on the police in general.It is worth noting that on Dec. 13, over 40,000 people had demonstrated against the cops in New York City for nine hours in the cold.No pomp and ceremony for the victimsOf course, JetBlue did not offer to fly free of charge those people who marched under the banner #BlackLivesMatter to the funerals of Michael Brown or Eric Garner. Unarmed African Americans who are gunned down, like so many others, by the cops apparently do not merit state funerals. Their families do not merit the glowing, saccharine sympathy poured out by capitalist politicians occupying the highest offices, nor the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for the families of the police to pay for mortgages and children’s education.Representatives of the White House, the governor and the mayor did not show up at the gravesites of the victims of the racist cops. The media did not give massive, sympathetic coverage for days in advance about their funerals. The oppressed have to pay for their own funerals, do their own publicity, and fight just to get a small slice of the limelight, even in the most highly publicized cases of police killing. All this while trying to make ends meet.But there were other aspects about the funerals for the police. First of all, they were meant to undercut the mass resistance that is growing around the #BlackLivesMatter movement, which has mushroomed with unprecedented energy and determination from coast to coast, North to South, in cities large and small.The media falsely painted the random killing of the two cops by a troubled individual as retribution for the killings of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. This was meant to push the movement back and undercut the growing sympathy it has gathered everywhere.Restoring the image of the copsOne of the most important political aims of the funerals, as far as the racist ruling class is concerned, was to refurbish the image of the cops and the grand jury system. After the killing of the two cops, the rulers seized the initiative to make them into martyrs. They gave vivid portrayals of their personal lives. They televised their grieving relatives. They dwelled upon the “danger” that the cops supposedly face and all but turned them into saints.The aim was to blot out the searing image of Eric Garner being choked to death on video by New York Police Department Officer Daniel Pantaleo, backed by a gang of accomplices; to put into the background the image of Michael Brown being shot with his hands up, after which his body lay on the ground for four hours. The ruling class publicists used the funerals for all they were worth to drown out the suffering of the oppressed and hush up the crimes of the cops — mercenaries who occupy the oppressed communities.This country is mired in an economic crisis. The last thing the ruling class wants is for the workers and the oppressed to weaken the cops, who will be called upon in the future to defend the capitalists and put down uprisings of the oppressed.Struggle between de Blasio and the copsThe funerals also became an arena for the struggle of the cops against civilian authority and any attempt to restrain their racism and brutality. The focus of attention was on the way thousands of cops turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio during the Ramos funeral. During Liu’s funeral, the number of cops turning their backs declined to several hundred, according to the media. This came after Bratton issued a memo disapproving of the tactic. But there was no decline in the cops’ antagonism for any civilian restraint on their racist aggression.Their movement is an undemocratic, semi-fascist manifestation of defiance. First of all, whatever one thinks of de Blasio and his compromise tactics of appeasement (approving the “broken windows” policy, for example), nevertheless, he was elected with 65 percent of the general vote and 95 percent of the Black vote.It is widely acknowledged that most of his victory margin came from de Blasio’s stand against stop-and-frisk and for reforming the police department.Toward the end of the administration of billionaire Mayor Michael Bloomberg, mass pressure and a lawsuit brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights brought about a legal victory against stop-and-frisk. The cops have fought this decision relentlessly; negotiations over its implementation are still going on. Much of the police rebellion is over de Blasio trying to curtail — not end — stop-and-frisk as well as other reform measures, such as “retraining,” body cameras for cops, restructuring the Civilian Complaint Review Board with more liberal members, etc.What the cops are doing is undemocratic in two respects. They are an armed, racist force trying to overturn civilian authority over them. And they are trying to overturn the results of an overwhelming popular vote, especially the Black vote, that was meant to rein in the police.The so-called “police strike” or slowdown, in which they have ceased giving out traffic tickets and summonses for minor violations, is directed against de Blasio and the city budget. Ironically, the masses are probably much relieved to be free of this harassment, although it also fills the coffers of City Hall.Decades of fighting to retain racist policiesAs far back as 1965, Mayor John Lindsay, a liberal Republican, was elected mayor largely on the program of police reform. His election came after many cases of police killings and beatings of African Americans and Latino/as. He appointed a commission to investigate the matter and make proposals, which led to one to establish a Civilian Complaint Review Board. At the time, all complaints about the police were handled by the police themselves.The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, the same organization presently headed by Patrick Lynch, who says about de Blasio that “City Hall has blood on its hands,” opposed Lindsay back then and fought the CCRB by supporting a referendum to stop it. They plastered the city with posters of a Black man, with a smoking gun in his hand, standing over a dead cop. This racist appeal successfully defeated the CCRB, in spite of a vigorous grassroots campaign to oppose the racist PBA referendum.In 1968 the racist governor of Alabama, George Wallace, ran for president on an independent ticket against the candidates of the two big capitalist parties, whom he denounced in a fascist manner.Wallace had blocked the entrance doors to the University of Alabama in 1963 to stop two African-American students from entering. He said at the time, “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” Finally the National Guard, under federal control, forced the state to register the students.When this segregationist scheduled a presidential campaign rally at Madison Square Garden in New York, Wallace posters went up in police precincts around the city. During a mass demonstration against Wallace called by Youth Against War & Fascism, 10,000 protesters battled the cops in the streets. The demonstrators could see Wallace buttons behind the lapels of many of the white cops.The white police support of Wallace was a demonstration of raw racism and was directed at both the Lindsay administration and the African-American and Latino/a communities.Struggle against David Dinkins, first Black mayorIn 1989 David Dinkins was elected New York City’s first Black mayor. Although he strengthened the police force considerably, he also campaigned on police reform and introduced a proposal for a Civilian Complaint Review Board. He also ordered the cops to use restraint when putting down a Black rebellion in Brooklyn after a Black child was killed in a traffic accident.Dinkins also refused to give the cops semi-automatic weapons after they started a public campaign about allegedly being “outgunned by the criminals.” Actually, the so-called “criminals” with high-powered weapons could not have remained free for one day except for the fact that corrupt cops were deeply involved in allowing guns and drugs into the community.The PBA, led at the time by Phil Caruso, campaigned against Dinkins in the 1992 mayoral election. The PBA was in league with racist, right-wing mayoral candidate Rudolph Giuliani. On Sept. 16, 1992, during a Giuliani election rally, 10,000 off-duty cops, many of them drunk, leaped over barricades and swarmed the steps of City Hall. They assaulted Black people in the area, including a Black woman member of the City Council. They blocked the Brooklyn Bridge.The cops carried derogatory signs about Dinkins and hurled racial slurs, calling him a “washroom attendant.” Giuliani spoke on the platform with Caruso and riled up the crowd. The cops also assaulted reporters. Ray Kelly was acting police commissioner at the time. There were never any consequences for the police mob.This is the context in which the struggle for and against “police reform” must be understood. Police reform, given the racist police repression and the level of police corruption in this country, always boils down to curtailing the racist violence of the police and/or their corrupt practices.The reforms themselves, however, cannot change the repressive and racist character of the police, no matter if Black police are on the force or who is in charge. Black police themselves have testified over and over about their fear of white police, both in uniform and on the streets.When the movement supports demands for police reform by the Black and Latino/a communities, it should not be because we expect the cops to be transformed. It is to show solidarity with the struggle against racism.The only way to push the police back is to escalate the magnificent #BlackLivesMatter mass mobilization that has been going on for months and has been growing stronger and stronger.Put the killer cops and their prosecutorial allies on the defensive. Make them fear the wrath of the people. That is the best way to get any police reform. But the real reform is to get rid of them altogether, together with the bosses and bankers they serve.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

He succumbed to the virus in mid-March.Since the start of the pandemic, Pasadena has recorded 11,157 total infections and 336 deaths.Over the prior week, the city had seen an average of three new infections daily, according to Pasadena Public Health Department data.Huntington Hospital reported its admitted COVID-19 patients had declined to 10 on Tuesday. The hospital’s intensive care unit remained empty of COVID-19 patients since reaching the milestone on Friday.Meanwhile, officials conducted small vaccine clinics at Robinson Park, Villa Parke and the Pasadena Public Health Department on Tuesday, with the next large-scale clinic planned Thursday at Pasadena City College, Derderian said.The clinics this week are focused on providing scheduled second doses of two-dose vaccine regimens.Pasadena had received only very small amounts of the single-dose Johnson & Johnson formula, and was primarily using the Moderna and Pfizer versions, Derderian said.The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported 406 new infections and 23 deaths on Monday, which brought the county-wide totals to 1,222,778 cases of COVID-19 and 23,292 fatalities.A total of 568 people were being treated for the virus at county hospitals, the agency said in a written statement.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer commended the progress and urged the public to continue their efforts, both by getting vaccinated and adhering to social distancing protocols.“L.A. County continues making progress and we appreciate the efforts of businesses and residents to keep everyone safe,” she said. “When we follow the safety measures and keep vaccinating people efficiently, effectively and equitably, it prevents transmission and a surge in cases. The light at the end of the tunnel gets brighter every day we keep transmission low and more people get vaccinated.”The California Department of Public Health reported 1,367 new infections and seven deaths on Tuesday. It was unclear why the state tally differed from that of L.A. County, reflecting more than three times fewer fatalities statewide than were reported in L.A. County, alone.The CDPH listed 3,583,830 total infections and 58,541 deaths.California’s average positivity rate over the prior week was recorded at 1.6%, officials added.As of Tuesday, L.A. County accounted for 34% of the state’s COVID-19 infections and 40% of California fatalities. Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

first_img Print Article The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Latest Stories Published 9:30 pm Thursday, February 26, 2009 Skip Sponsored Content Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By Jaine Treadwell Renfroe showed calves for four years before he had to choose between playing sports and showing calves. But the lessons he learned in raising and showing calves translated to the sports arena.“Raising and showing calves, you learn a lot about hard work, responsibility and commitment,” Renfroe said. “You learn things that will help you later in life and all through life.”When Renfroe had children of his own, he encouraged his girls to participate in the 4-H program and to raise calves to show.The biggest change was that parents had become more involved in the program and showing calves had actually become a family affair. “I did encourage the girls, but all three of them liked participating in the steer and heifer program and it was something that we all enjoyed, Susan, the girls and me,” Renfroe said. By The Penny Hoarder Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits And Renfroe admitted raising calves for show as “kind of an ego thing.”“It was like playing ball,” he said. “You wanted your kids to do good, to excel and win. But, by the same token, they learned that there are things you have to do when sometimes you’d rather do something else.”Although winning is always the desired end result, Renfroe said those who compete are usually an unselfish bunch.“You know about the commitment and hard work that has gone into getting there so you want all the kids to do well,” Renfroe said. “When you compete on the local level, everybody gets to know everybody and you become a family.”All three of Bill and Betty Hixon’s children showed calves and so did their grandchildren.But now, showing calves has given way to sports. “You can’t play ball these day and show calves and do either one of them good,” Hixon said. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “We were just little ol’ farm boys working with calves from off the farm,” Hixon said. “The first calf show that I entered was at the courthouse on the square in Troy. We tied our calves to mimosa trees.”Renfroe was the next in the family to show calves and, as a farm boy, showing calves was a natural outlet for young Renfroe.“I’d always been around cattle so I wanted to see what I could do raising a calf on my own,” Renfroe said. “Back then when children did a 4-H project, they did it on their own. So, I did the raising and showing on my own.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Acid Reflux (Watch Now)Healthy LifestyleIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

first_imgAn accurate and coherent chronological framework is essential for the interpretation of climatic and environmental records obtained from deep polar ice cores. Until now, one common ice core age scale had been developed based on an inverse dating method (Datice), combining glaciological modelling with absolute and stratigraphic markers between 4 ice cores covering the last 50 ka (thousands of years before present) (Lemieux-Dudon et al., 2010). In this paper, together with the companion paper of Veres et al. (2013), we present an extension of this work back to 800 ka for the NGRIP, TALDICE, EDML, Vostok and EDC ice cores using an improved version of the Datice tool. The AICC2012 (Antarctic Ice Core Chronology 2012) chronology includes numerous new gas and ice stratigraphic links as well as improved evaluation of background and associated variance scenarios. This paper concentrates on the long timescales between 120–800 ka. In this framework, new measurements of δ18Oatm over Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 11–12 on EDC and a complete δ18Oatm record of the TALDICE ice cores permit us to derive additional orbital gas age constraints. The coherency of the different orbitally deduced ages (from δ18Oatm, δO2/N2 and air content) has been verified before implementation in AICC2012. The new chronology is now independent of other archives and shows only small differences, most of the time within the original uncertainty range calculated by Datice, when compared with the previous ice core reference age scale EDC3, the Dome F chronology, or using a comparison between speleothems and methane. For instance, the largest deviation between AICC2012 and EDC3 (5.4 ka) is obtained around MIS 12. Despite significant modifications of the chronological constraints around MIS 5, now independent of speleothem records in AICC2012, the date of Termination II is very close to the EDC3 one.last_img read more

first_imgIshida Europe has developed a new data capture system for checkweighers in order to help production reporting procedures. The Ishida Data Capture System (IDCS) records data from packs weighed by up to 100 checkweighers and stores it on a secure database. It offers a range of reporting options, as well as identifying cost-saving opportunities, minimising product give-away and improving production efficiencies.The system is compatible across all Ishida DACS checkweigher models and allows remote control and set-up of the checkweighers. The data can be analysed by batch, shift, operator, product or machine and reports are fully customised to include information such as production histograms, downtime, the checkweigher’s overall equipment efficiency (OEE) and daily reports. It can be accessed on-site or remotely using ethernet connections, and the only software required is a standard web browser.Paul Griffin, Ishida Europe’s marketing director, commented: “In today’s modern production environment, manufacturers need to reconcile the need for full reporting to meet legal obligations with the pressures of operating to maximum efficiency.”[]last_img read more
