The house along Cove Drive in Sentosa sits on a slightly tapered site that faced a man-made lake. Built for a small family that greatly cherish their privacy, the house turns it back on the street and the sides where the neighbours are in close proximity. Like a monolith resting over the gardens, the single, faceted volume house the main spaces with their primary view to the waterway.The main entrance brings one into the centre of the house with the living and dining space on the sides. The upper floors are split in the middle into two volumes that house the daughter and the parent’s bedrooms. Save this picture!© Albert LimThe basement accommodate the guest room, entertainment, services and garage, lit and ventilated largely by the sunken courtyards. Save this picture!© Albert LimThe massing on grade is kept deliberately small to create more garden spaces within the tight site. The geometry is derived from negotiating with the planning parameters imposed on the neighborhood and the desire to simplify the building form. The front and side facades are pared down with openings strategically position to allow optimal daylighting with minimum compromise in privacy. The sloping walls at the corners allow for a smaller footprint while expanding the spatial volume at upper levels.Save this picture!© Albert LimLike its simple form, few architectural materials were used. The facades are entirely wrapped in iron wood. The interior adopts a lighter palette of oak and travertine. At nightfall, fragments of the internal spaces are seen on the facade. The muted, impenetrable volume gradually gives way to the volumes of internal light, revealing the intricacy within.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessFish market in Bergen / Eder Biesel ArkitekterSelected ProjectsGreen Screen House / Hideo Kumaki Architect OfficeSelected Projects Share “COPY” 2012 Diamond House / Formwerkz ArchitectsSave this projectSaveDiamond House / Formwerkz Architects Architects: Formwerkz Architects Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Save this picture!© Albert Lim+ 21 Sharelast_img read more

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Actor Rik Makarem – who has appeared in Torchwood and is currently playing the role of Nikhil Sharma in Emmerdale – is lending a helping hand to raise money for a local charity next week.Husband and wife team Marcus and Laura Leverton are hosting a black tie event on Friday 5th February at The Red Lion Pub and Bistro in Chesterfield, as a thank you to The Sick Children’s Trust for providing them with accommodation at Treetop House in Sheffield. Rik will be guest of honour.The Levertons stayed at the house in August 2009 when their son, Harry, was in intensive care after contracting three viral infections that caused problems with his breathing. Harry also suffered a bowel perforation whilst in Sheffield Children’s Hospital which resulted in major surgery. During this time, the Levertons stayed in Treetops House for 10 days.Although Harry is currently still on medication due to the removal of part of his bowel, he is very much back to his old self again.Rik said: “I’ve been friends with Marcus for 10 years now as we grew up together in our home town of Chesterfield. When he told me about the great work The Sick Children’s undertakes and how it had helped him and Laura remain close to Harry when he was taken ill, I offered to do anything I could to make the fundraiser as successful as possible.“The team at Emmerdale has also been very supportive of me, signing scripts and memorabilia to auction off and even offering a behind the scenes tour of the set in Leeds to the highest bidder. We are hoping to raise more than £3,000 on the night.”The money raised will go towards The Sick Children’s Trust’s ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, Treetop House, in Sheffield.EndsNotes to Editors:The Sick Children’s Trust runs seven ‘Homes from Home’ at major hospitals around the country where families can stay free of charge, for as long as they need whilst their child is undergoing treatment. There is a growing demand for our ‘Homes from Home’ as children must increasingly travel long distances to get the specialist treatment they need. In essence, The Sick Children’s Trust ensures that the very basic of all medicines has a chance to work; family love and support.To date we have helped more than 30,000 families. To run our ‘Homes from Home’ we rely entirely on voluntary donations; and need to raise nearly £1million this year to keep them open.For further information about The Sick Children’s Trust, please contact Sarah Wallace on 020 7791 2266 or email [email protected] Tagged with: Celebrity England Eventslast_img read more

Problems of Greek crisis as predatory lenders demand austerity

first_imgFeb. 16 — The eyes of both world finance capital and class-conscious workers and revolutionaries have been on Greece in its struggle against austerity.The central focus of that struggle has been in Brussels this past week, with tense negotiations between Greece’s social-democratic Syriza government and representatives of the other 18 eurozone countries, their bankers and finance ministers.Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has been under intense pressure from the Troika — the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Commission — to request an extension of Greece’s bailout program, which carries with it harsh conditions of austerity. This same bailout program has brought about 26 percent unemployment and a 44 percent poverty level, while aggravating a 25 percent drop in Greece’s production over the last five years.The Greek government has said it cannot and will not submit to this kind of extension. “Final” negotiations were supposed to take place on Feb. 16. It was expected that the negotiations would last into the night. Instead, the talks broke up after three and a half hours, when Varoufakis denounced the proposal put forward by the bankers. The two sides could not even agree on some perfunctory statement to paper over differences.Predatory lendersThe bankers of Europe are true predatory lenders. They loaned money to the Greek government because the government owed money to the banks. So the bankers really made the loans primarily to bail themselves out. Furthermore, Greece owes 323 billion euros, equivalent to 175 percent of its gross domestic product. Everyone knows Greece cannot pay this debt. But the bankers want their money — especially the interest payments.The debt was magnified by previous Greek governments whose dealings with Goldman Sachs and other banks were secret, fraudulent schemes to hide government debt by using credit default swaps and other financial sleight of hand. The Greek government was able to keep the borrowing off the books, thereby making its official debt appear within the limits allowed by the eurozone.But when the financial crisis hit in 2008, the scheme fell apart. The Greek government debt turned out to be twice as large as was previously reported. The same types of financial schemes were cooked up by J.P. Morgan in Italy; other banks concocted similar fraudulent lending schemes across Europe.This did not stop the European banks and the IMF from then forcing austerity measures on the Greek government in return for loans Greece desperately needed, partly because of bank fraud.Now the new Greek government is in negotiations with these same financial predators, trying to get them to allow Greece to reverse the devastation wrought by the austerity measures dictated under the terms of the loans. Syriza took early bold steps by defying the Troika, putting forward a program of restoring the minimum wage, hiring 300,000 new workers, and giving food, health care and housing to the homeless and the poor. The Syriza government also announced that it would end the privatization of national assets and other measures that were conditions for receiving the so-called “bailouts.”Syriza declared it would not apply for the last 7 billion euro due the government under the bailout because of the attached austerity conditions.Syriza has backed down from its original demand that the debt be reduced by half and offered other concessions. It has tried to appear reasonable by pledging its loyalty to “Europe,” which means the eurozone run by the bankers. But the German bankers and their allies in the eurozone have been adamant. At best they have offered cosmetic modifications, but have not given an inch in their demands that Greece apply for a continuation of the bailout agreement, which is scheduled to terminate on Feb. 28.Failure to renew would leave Greece in default to the bankers. No one knows how that would ripple through the financial system in Europe and beyond.Mass mobilization needs to be sharply escalatedNo sooner was the breakdown in negotiations announced than a new set of negotiations was scheduled; nevertheless, there may be a compromise.But regardless of the outcome of these negotiations, there are a number of problems that will ultimately have to be resolved if the outcome is to be favorable for the masses in Greece.One problem is that, given the relationship of forces between the Greek government and the other European imperialists, negotiations with the bankers by themselves cannot have a favorable result in the struggle against austerity.The election of Syriza, its legal standing, its popular support and the justice of its claims are hardly sufficient to move the Troika and the bankers of Europe.What is needed is a sharp escalation of the mass struggle in Greece in order to let the powers know that they are not dealing with government officials alone but with an aroused population.In the past week there have been several mass demonstrations in Athens, Thessaloniki and other Greek cities. The demonstrations — 20,000 in Athens and 10,000 in Thessaloniki — have been a good start. But Athens has a population of 665,000 in the city proper and 3.75 million in the metropolitan area.The size of the demonstrations so far, relative to the population and relative to previous demonstrations in 2014 and before, shows insufficient mass mobilization by the revolutionary left and other forces. For example, the trade unions have had many general strikes in the past several years against austerity. If there was ever a time for a general strike to push back the bankers, the time is now. Such a strike would be greeted enthusiastically by the people — it would push the struggle forward and send a sharp message to Brussels and Berlin.Patiently explain limitations of Syriza’s demandsRight now the masses are very much in support of the Syriza government. They must understand  that so long as Syriza accepts the framework established by European finance capital, and is committed to abide by its fundamental regulations, there can be no break with the debt slavery the masses are suffering under. There can, at best, be a loosening of the chains of that slavery.What Syriza is aiming at is a “new deal.” Its struggle to push back austerity must be strongly supported in the streets. But what is needed is to break the chains of debt slavery altogether. Slogans must be raised denouncing the debt, declaring refusal to pay, showing that the debt is illegitimate and is legalized robbery. Demands must be raised for cancellation of the debt or a lengthy moratorium and, of course, for dramatically raising the standard of living of the population as a whole in every way.So long as the masses rely on negotiations to bring an end to austerity, they will be operating under illusions. It is the independent action of the workers, the students, the youth, the communities that can play the decisive role. The revolutionary left, while being alongside the masses in the anti-austerity struggle, must patiently explain the class truth to them about breaking with the European capitalist establishment.Prepare to combat economic sabotageFinally, breaking with European capital, with the euro and the European Union is easier said than done. It cannot be done without a monumental struggle. Preparations for such a struggle must be thought through now.During the run-up to the election on Jan. 25, when Syriza won 36 percent of the vote, the right wing was passing out pictures of food lines in Venezuela and threatening voters with the prospect that if Syriza left the euro it would bring about economic disaster.This brings up the need for the people to be prepared to defend against economic aggression, not only from the European bankers at large, but from their own capitalist class and their own bankers.One of the things the European banks did to both Ireland and Cyprus during their debt crises was threaten to destroy their banking systems. Both countries gave in and signed structural adjustment austerity programs.Under eurozone rules, the ECB can stop loans to private banks and central banks if they cannot ensure repayment. Right now the ECB has extended loans to hard-pressed Greek banks in the present crisis. But the ECB could turn the spigot off overnight.If the Greek government tries to regain sovereignty over its currency and return to the drachma, and if economic aggression is launched by the euro bankers and Greek capitalists, strong defensive measures have to be in place.For example, right now it is estimated that 2 billion euro a week are fleeing from Greek banks. Under these conditions it would be perfectly legitimate, as a defensive measure, to nationalize the banks. In fact, nationalization of the banks is in Syriza’s 40-point program. Instead of letting this demand lie dormant, it should be enforced in order to prevent the financial resources of the country from being drained by the rich.There are many other measures that can be taken as a way of preparing to defend against economic aggression. Syriza has said it will make the notoriously tax-evading Greek corporations and the rich pay up. Untold millions of euros could immediately be reclaimed for the Greek treasury if delegations of workers, accompanied by accountants and financial experts, examined the books of the bankers, the industrialists, the shipbuilders, the tourist industry and so on to collect the taxes owed.Securing the proper production and distribution of food, the delivery of health care and social services, etc., must be prepared if there is going to be a battle with the euro bankers and the Greek capitalists.The most important aspect of any defensive strategy against economic sabotage would be to involve the workers in the process of enforcement. As the struggle intensifies, the organization of the workers will be crucial in dealing with the police and the military — the repressive arms of the capitalist state that will no doubt be called upon to protect capitalist interests against the intervention of the workers.To be sure, Syriza shows no signs of being anywhere near such measures. Nor are the masses prepared for this right now. But this struggle is not going to be concluded just because negotiations end in Brussels. The hard question of austerity still has to be fought from below, no matter what happens at the top. And the question of leadership will be decisive.There is a great deal of potential in the struggle against austerity. It could easily mushroom from being at a stalemate in negotiations to become a struggle in the streets. Should such a struggle break out in Greece, this could be a clarion call to the long-suffering workers and middle classes of Portugal, Spain, Italy and other European countries. By the same token, it would stimulate crucial international solidarity, already begun in Spain — as shown through the protest held by Podemos — and recently seen in Paris, London and Lisbon.This is what has the euro bankers worried, even though they will never admit it. But everything must be done to make their worst nightmares come true.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

INFB Virtual Convention a Success

INFB President Randy Kron hopes that it will be the last all-virtual convention they hold, but he was pleased with how everything turned out.“I am happy with the turnout, what we did and how it worked. The technology all worked which, with our broadband issues, sometimes that’s a challenge, but it was a success. Now, would I have rather been in person? Absolutely! That’s what I heard from most people- they liked it, they thought the event was good, but they just missed the social activity and we missed out on that.”Convention isn’t the only thing that went virtual this year for Farm Bureau. County meetings, their August delegate session, and other meetings have all turned into Zoom calls. Now, Kron says meetings with legislators are happening virtually.“Normally we do pre-legislative meetings with them and those are all happening, but they’re happening virtually. So, if you look back at last year at our health benefit plan, that grassroots effort is what pushed us over the finish line. With broadband being our number one issue this year, that’s what’s going to get some things changed or make some improvements.”It is a budget year at the statehouse, and after a tough 2020 due to COVID-19, Kron says, “This isn’t a year to be asking for more money from the state because you know their budget is running short too, but maybe we can find some alternative financing possibilities.”If you missed it, convention recordings will be available sometime this week at infb.org.

Rain and snow moving from Midwest into the Northeast

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Over the weekend a storm system that moved into the West Coast brought more than 5 inches of rain to northern California around the Bay area. This heavy rain flooded streets and even produced a few mudslides in the state.In the mountains, heavy snow of 12 to 17 inches fell from California to Montana making driving extremely difficult on the roads.Now this storm system is in the Midwest and the Great Lakes, bringing with it heavy snow from the Dakotas to Minnesota and into Michigan. A treacherous Monday morning commute is expected in the Twin Cities.Numerous snow alerts have been issued this morning from the Upper Midwest and into the Great Lakes.Further south, heavy rain is moving through Indianapolis and Detroit.Some of the heavy rain will move into the Northeast later this afternoon into the evening hours, just in time for evening rush hour. Snow will be ending in the Midwest by Monday afternoon.By Tuesday, the cold front will move through the Midwest and the Northeast and, behind it, colder air will mix with precipitation changing it to snow from the Mid-South all the way into the Northeast.By Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the rain will change to snow for most major cities along I-95 and there could be several inches of accumulation.The Wednesday morning rush could be messy from Washington, D.C. to New York City and Boston.Snow could even fall Tuesday evening in the South from northern Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee and into West Virginia.At the moment, it looks like the heaviest snow Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning will be from the southern Appalachians and into southeast New England where 3 to 6 inches of snow could fall in Boston.New York City and Philadelphia could see 1 to 3 inches of snow with Washington, D.C. getting a possible dusting.Behind this storm system, the coldest air of the season is expected for the Midwest and the Great Lakes with winds chills well below zero.Actual temperatures will be below zero across the Upper Midwest. Some of this cold air will move into the Northeast Wednesday, but it is not expected to be as cold as the Midwest.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
