The small-size site is located on a slight western slope, in a suburban area of the capital city. It has a very good public transport access from the city centre. Save this picture!Courtesy of BY ArchitectsGiven the constraints of the lot, the house has been designed as 2-storied. The upper floor, containing the bedrooms, protrudes forward and leans on two steel pillars. The gable of the saddle roof with its archetypal shape levitates towards the road. It roofs the entrance and the parking space and, above all, naturally complements the street front. The rear part of the upper floor rests on the lower receding mass which comprises the living space and a study with a street view. Save this picture!First Floor PlanOn the southern plot boundary, at the entrance to the site, the new house communicates with an old plum tree which shakes hands with it and welcomes it among the motley of longtime-resident houses. A cherry tree stands in the main view-through axis and decorates the main living space and the stairway. Thanks to the play of daylight and artificial light, the house becomes a living organism changing its appearance during the day and during the seasons of the year. Save this picture!Courtesy of BY ArchitectsThe expression of the house is composed of details, rendered in simple materials, down to the fine bevel edges on the wooden stairs. Attention was devoted to selecting each grid, knob and handle, switch, doorbell, or mixer tap both in terms of type and a specific tint.

That way, the scheme of the palette forms a background for life itself whose colourfulness will imprint the final appearance on the house.

Poor People‘s March for jobs, justice

first_img‘Ignite revolution Dr. King called for’The following press statement was released by Witherspoon, president of the Baltimore chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.Next Saturday morning, many of us will mark the 45th anniversary of the Poor People’s Campaign that Martin Luther King inspired, but did not live long enough to lead, by marching from Baltimore to Washington, D.C.C.D. WitherspoonWW photo: Brenda RyanOn May 11, the families of young Black and Brown people who have been killed by police will link arms with poor people, immigrant workers fighting for their rights, students, Walmart workers, union members, unemployed people and Occupy Wall Street activists, and walk 40 miles south down the highway to Washington, D.C.We will occupy Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue, a few blocks away from the White House and down the road from the Capitol. There we will erect a big tent and convene a People’s Power Assembly.We are doing this to bear witness to the truth, and to help spark the social revolution that Dr. King prescribed in the months before his death.Dr. King often said that truth crushed to earth will rise again. The brutal truth is that the powers that be are waging a war against virtually everything that Dr. King fought and died for.Fifty years ago, on the steps of the Lincoln Monument, King shared his dream with the world. Today more and more of us are living in a nightmare.Anyone who thought that having an African-American family or a Democrat in the White House would negate the urgent necessity for a social revolution has long awoken from that dream.Our young people are more likely to be in prison than in a job.Poverty, unemployment and desperation are more widespread today than they were when King was alive. The pauperization of the population is the biggest crisis today.The banks got bailed out after the 2008 global financial crash, and the stock market has soared through the roof. But for the rest of us — the people that Occupy Wall Street calls the 99% — there’s nothing but economic terrorism in the form of unemployment, evictions, foreclosures, low wages and cutbacks.The 1% have never been richer, greedier and more determined to eliminate, privatize or otherwise destroy every program that is helpful to the poor.Wall Street has ordered the politicians and the corporate media to justify the war against the poor.We’ve been told that the cutting of Social Security, health care and unemployment benefits and the closing of hospitals, schools and post offices are being forced upon us by harsh economic realities.We’ve been told that there’s no point in proposing a real jobs program because we can’t afford one.These things are presented to us as though they were inarguable facts. They are not.They are absurd and cruel lies put forward by the 1% in defense of a social and economic order that puts profits and greed before people’s needs. These lies are meant to demoralize us and persuade us that it’s useless to fight for a world based on equality, justice, solidarity and love.These lies, and the 1% whose interest they serve, must be defeated.When King proposed the Poor People’s Campaign in 1967, he said that a revolution of values was needed, one that would transform a profit-centered economy into a people-centered one.We will be marching on Saturday to ignite that revolution.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Frontline Optimistic Despite Lower Income

first_imgJohn Fredriksen-controlled tanker owner and operator Frontline ended the first quarter of 2017 with a net income of USD 27 million, significantly lower from the net income of USD 78.9 million seen a year earlier.The company’s total operating revenues for the quarter reached USD 177.1 million, decreasing from USD 227.1 million reported in the same period of the previous year.“Notwithstanding near-term pressure on crude tanker rates, we believe the market will ultimately return to balance as demand for crude oil continues to increase and vessel scrapping will begin to offset the negative effect of newbuilding deliveries,” Robert Hvide Macleod, Chief Executive Officer of Frontline Management AS, said.“The recent market weakness and other factors have contributed to a historically low asset price environment that has presented us with opportunities to acquire modern tonnage at attractive prices,” he added.Namely, during the quarter the company acquired two VLCC resales delivering September and October 2017 from Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) at USD 77.5 million net per vessel.Additionally, the owner ordered two VLCC newbuildings scheduled to be delivered during December 2018 and April 2019 and obtained options for two additional sister vessels scheduled to be delivered during August and November 2019 from Hyundai Heavy Industries at USD 79.8 million per vessel.“Frontline’s continued ability to access attractively priced capital is indicative of the financial strength of our platform as well as our deep relationships within the lending community,” Inger M. Klemp, Chief Financial Officer of Frontline Management AS, said, adding that the company secured financing for the newly acquired four VLCC resales and newbuilding contracts in an amount of up to USD 221 million.The financing carries an interest rate of LIBOR plus a margin of 190 basis points and has an amortization profile of 18 years, which supports Frontline’s low cash break-even levels.Frontline said it believes that the market will begin to improve in 2018 as the pace of deliveries of newbuilding vessels slows and vessels are retired from the global fleet.“We expect vessel scrapping to begin to pick up as we progress through 2017, particularly in light of the implementation of the ballast water treatment convention later this year and given the amount of older vintage tonnage,” Frontline said.The company added that some vessels may also be dry docked ahead of the implementation date of the convention in order to defer the cost of compliance, which may have the effect of temporarily removing supply from the market.last_img read more

T-Time: Los Angeles Rams not built to last

first_imgThis off-season, the Los Angeles Rams have garnered more headlines and attention than any other team in the NFL.They added defensive tackle Ndamukung Suh and cornerbacks Aquib Talib and Marcus Peters to an already talented defense in blockbuster moves. On the other side of the football, the Rams bolstered the league’s highest scoring offense with yet another weapon for burgeoning quarterback Jared Goff. They traded for explosive wide receiver Brandin Cooks, who is coming off a 1,000 yard season with the Patriots. The Rams will undoubtedly make some noise in 2018. Each of their competitors in the NFC West — consisting of Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona — is going through upheaval of some sort (the 49ers, led by prodigy quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, are still likely one or two years away from the playoffs). In theory, this is the perfect year for the Rams to join the league’s elite and improve upon their surprising 11-5 season in 2017. But the Rams are not necessarily built for the long haul. Cooks is in the final year of his rookie deal (hints why New England had no problem flipping him for a first-rounder). Similarly, Peters will become an unrestricted free agent in 2020, while Suh signed on for just one year. On top of that, the Rams have yet to come to terms with a new deal for defensive tackle Aaron Donald, the team’s most dominant player. Once his rookie deal ends after this season, Donald could become the league’s highest paid defensive player, whether that contract comes in Los Angeles or elsewhere. With myriad young stars at the end of their cheap rookie contracts, the Rams won’t be able to pay everyone for the long haul. Tough decisions over Cooks, Peters, Suh and Donald are on the horizon, and the situation wasn’t improved by the team’s lack of a first or second round pick in this year’s draft. Head coach Sean McVay and Co. likely have a one or two year window to win big, or risk crashing and burning. By the time their new $4 billion, 300 acre stadium opens up in 2020, the Rams may not have the star power to match the impressive venue. In contrast, the Rams’ future roommates and cross town rivals, the Chargers, have not created much buzz this offseason. Coming off an ill-advised and overly combative “Fight for LA” campaign during the 2017 season, the Chargers embarrassingly struggled to sell out the 27,000 seat StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. in 2017. It was never going to be an easy debut season in Los Angeles for the Chargers. They alienated their only real fan base when they left San Diego in 2017, and the team lacks the Rams’ historical ties to the area (even though the Chargers’ first season in franchise history was played at the Coliseum). The Chargers’ move to L.A. was hard to see as anything more than a money grab for the Spanos family, which has owned (and barely operated) the franchise since 1984. Bad PR aside, the Chargers have at least built their roster for the long haul. The team’s core of running back Melvin Gordon and defensive ends Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are still in the hearts of their current deals. Unlike the Rams, who weren’t able to add meaningful young talent in the draft, the Chargers took safety Derwin James at 17th overall, which was widely considered the steal of the first round (James was projected to go in the top ten by numerous outlets). They also added former USC outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu in the second round, who ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. called “the best player on the board” at that point. “This Super Bowl we’re going to win,” Ingram told reporters on Monday, according to ESPN. “We haven’t been to the playoffs in a while. I think it’s going to be crazy, this Super Bowl we’re going to win is going to be crazy.” It’s difficult to see the Chargers reaching those heights in 2018, given their young roster and murderer’s row of a division (the AFC West includes the Broncos, Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs, who all look like playoff contenders). But the next five years look bright for Ingram and his team. The defense has quietly reached elite status with its stiff secondary (they gave up just 197 passing yards per game) and menacing pass rush, which created the fifth-most sacks in the NFL last year. Meanwhile, 36-year-old quarterback Philip Rivers appears to be only getting more prolific with age, throwing for 4,515 yards in 2017 with just 10 interceptions. The Rams have taken over the spotlight for now, but there could be a new leading team in Los Angeles sooner rather than later. One is built to win; the other is built to last.
