Save this picture!© Bertil Hertzberg Tengbom Architects has designed a student unit for students which is affordable, environmental-friendly and smart both in terms of design and choice of materials. The project is a collaboration with wood manufacturer Martinsons and real estate company AF Bostäder. Save this picture!© Bertil Hertzberg To meet the needs of students in a sustainable, smart and affordable way was the key questions when Tengbom in collaboration with students at the University of Lund was designing this student unit of 10 square meters. The unit is now displayed in Virserum Art Museum. In 2014, 22 units will be built and ready for students to move into. Save this picture!© Bertil Hertzberg To successfully build affordable student housing requires innovative thinking and new solutions. The area in each unit is reduced from current requirement, 25 square meters to 10 square meters through legal consent. This truly compact-living flat still offers a comfortable sleeping-loft, kitchen, bathroom and a small garden with a patio. Through an efficient layout and the use of cross laminated wood as a construction material the rent is reduced by 50 % and the ecological impact and carbon footprints is also significantly reduced. Energy efficiency is a key issue when designing new buildings. Choosing right material and manufacturing methods is vital to minimize the carbon emission and therefore wood was chosen for its carbon positive qualities, and as a renewable resource it can be sourced locally to minimize transportation. The manufacturer method was chosen because of is flexible production and for its assembling technique which can be done on site to reduce construction time.

WW forum says ‘U.S. hands off Korea!’

first_imgA forum sponsored by Workers World Party in New York on March 29 took up the serious danger of another war on the Korean peninsula. Guest speaker Juyeon “JC” Rhee, of the Korean-American group Nodutdol, and Deirdre Griswold, Secretariat member of Workers World Party and editor of Workers World newspaper, have both been to north and south Korea. Below are excerpts from their talks.Juyeon Rhee: War exercises, sanctions raise war threatJuyeon RheeThe situation is very, very urgent. We are very worried that this time a war may happen. A lot of media are portraying the increased tension as if north Korea is making belligerent, unprovoked statements. But actually they are in response to the threat that they are receiving. As of this moment, the Key Resolve [U.S.-south Korea military exercises] just ended, and the Foal Eagle joint training begins, which involves 25,000 U.S. soldiers plus 53,000 south Korean soldiers, right around the [demilitarized zone]. So the entire country goes on an alert for two months.On the KCNA website [the news agency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea], the banner used to read, “Word for word, action for action.” That they would not back off from the threat that they were feeling or perceiving. Now the banner reads, “We are ready for a great war of national reunification.” Those kinds of statements have been made before — every time they did a satellite launch, every time they did a nuclear test. However, this time we think the situation has changed a lot. The military tension is higher than in the past.On March 28, the New York Times reported that two U.S. nuclear-armed Stealth bombers went over south Korea and did simulated bombing exercises [against the north]. This is the first time. They never did this in south Korea before.Also, the toughest U.N. sanctions have been imposed. They include especially a financial freeze. No money can be sent into north Korea, and they cannot send any money out — to their diplomats or students, for instance. Everyone is in a frozen state at this point. That creates a serious health crisis, because no medicines are going in. But all [the media] talk about is a freeze on “luxury goods.”In the media the north Korean leaders are always portrayed as the menace, the evil, and the people as very helpless — suffering, starving. You see these images of goose-stepping soldiers only, and not of a people who are determined — as workers, as mothers, as soldiers — to build this strong nation. This portrayal of an evil, powerful leadership and a helpless people, with no self-will, invites what? It invites third-party intervention. The powerful U.S. then comes in as a rescuer. This kind of juxtaposition justifies and invites an intervention.This is really racism, no? The north Korean people for the last 60 years of sanctions have been standing firm. There is a very strong will on the north Korean people’s side — not only the party, not only the leaders.Deirdre Griswold: What makes the DPRK strongDeirdre GriswoldKorea has never invaded the U.S. But the U.S. sent 5.7 million troops to Korea during the war, and for three years the U.S. Air Force destroyed everything it could in the north, dropping more bombs than were dropped in Europe in all of World War II.Ever since, the U.S. has occupied the south and kept the north in the crosshairs of its planes and ships stationed in the Pacific, many of which are armed with nuclear weapons.So it is ludicrous to say, as all the corporate media here do, that the DPRK is irrational when it strengthens its defenses and warns against a U.S. attack. No country in the world is more justified in having a nuclear deterrent and a strong defense than the DPRK.Just think of how many countries have been laid waste by U.S. imperialist intervention in the last 10 years alone. After seeing what has happened to Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yugoslavia, Somalia — haven’t the Koreans drawn the lesson from this that you don’t give up your weapons?Ever since the Korean war ended in 1953, the U.S. has tried to strangle the DPRK economically. Nevertheless, it was able to rebuild very quickly — the standard of living in the north surpassed that in the south by the 1970s. It has only been since the destruction of the USSR and the rightward turn in People’s China that U.S. efforts to cripple the economy through sanctions and military pressures have cut deep.Washington’s strategy is clear: Make life so difficult for the north Korean people that their will to resist will weaken. But that has not happened. On the contrary, they have supported strengthening their armed defense at the same time that they make even greater efforts to modernize their economy.How are they able to do all this?It’s because of the respect and confidence that the Workers’ Party of Korea has won over decades of struggle.It is truly a workers’ party, based in the masses of people. I saw this on a trip to the DPRK in 1988, on the 40th anniversary of the founding of the DPRK. The great leader of the Korean Revolution, Kim Il Sung, spoke at a national meeting of the party cadre. Thousands of workers and war veterans, women and men of all ages, packed a large convention hall. They had the strong hands and weathered faces of people who know what work is. One million people marched the next day.No suburbs or dachas ring Pyongyang. It’s the only city I know of that has no slums and no private mansions. The planned streets, beautiful public buildings and modern apartments are surrounded by fields of collective farms.The wealth of the DPRK is in the public sector — libraries, schools, museums, hospitals. A recent article in the New York Times described how — miraculously! — a dairy farm in Indiana is able to supply all its energy needs from methane gas derived from animal droppings. I saw that more than 20 years ago on a collective farm in the DPRK, where trucks, tractors and cooking stoves were run on methane “cooked” from manure.The DPRK has one of the best educational systems in the world. Every farm has a library and classrooms for continued adult education in science, agronomy, etc.The Cubans have a saying: “Se puede mucho juntos.” We can do a lot — together. That’s the spirit in the DPRK, too, where the solidarity of the people through their party makes it possible to resist the world’s most aggressive imperialist power.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Injustice prevails despite mass prisoner release in Cleveland

first_imgClevelandSince March 14 the Cuyahoga County jail, located in downtown Cleveland, has released hundreds of prisoners to reduce the jail population in light of the coronavirus COVID-19 health emergency.Many people are now asking the obvious question: “Why can’t Cleveland’s example be followed across the country?” Most of the prisoners freed were so-called “nonviolent offenders” not convicted of a crime, yet kept in jail because they lacked the funds to post bail. There are untold numbers of people across the country in a similar situation. They should be released, too.Demonstration outside Cuyahoga County Jail, Oct. 8, 2019.Credit: WW photo: Martha GrevattHowever, there are important facts to consider before holding up Cuyahoga County as a model. The Coalition to Stop the Inhumanity at the Cuyahoga County Jail held a well-attended webinar on March 19 to discuss some of the injustices the released prisoners have been subjected to. Most remain under house arrest, forced to wear an ankle bracelet for which they are being charged $220 a month. By law these former inmates, not yet tried, are “presumed innocent.” Now they are being punished for crimes they have not been convicted of. The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio has a petition to eliminate these exorbitant charges.Other inmates felt coerced into taking plea deals in order to get away from the dangerous health situation in the jail. The courts were “putting people in a compromised state,” according to Melekte Melaku of the Cleveland ACLU.The freed inmates were also not given any resources to survive in an impoverished city, now in the throes of a worldwide economic meltdown.Melaku also called emergency guidelines issued by the Ohio Supreme Court “tepid and inadequate” because they did not call for reducing incarceration — even though “jails are where the virus is going to spread the fastest.”Inhuman conditionsAt one point the county jail, built to hold under 1,800 people, housed 2,400, with prisoners sleeping on mats on the lunchroom floor. The coalition, formed after seven prisoners died in 2018, has held a number of protests. These actions drew attention to physical and mental abuse of inmates; poor quality food, sanitation and medical care; overcrowding and other deplorable conditions. While the overcrowding has finally been alleviated due to the COVID-19 danger, poor treatment of inmates continues.Even operating below capacity, County Executive Armond Budish claims the population is now below 1,400, a figure the coalition disputes. Social distancing is unlikely and the virus can be expected to spread.The March 19 webinar also took up the serious overcrowding at the halfway facility, Oriana House, where state and federal prisoners may be allowed to complete their sentences before release. Resident Brandon Baxter reached out to the news media after being housed with 15 other men in a room with eight beds. After the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on the conditions, hundreds of residents were released.However, Baxter was sent back to prison for violating a rule against speaking to anyone on the outside without permission. One of the “Cleveland Three,” Baxter was jailed in 2012 in a case of FBI entrapment directed against Occupy Cleveland.The webinar, called in lieu of the coalition’s monthly meeting, brought in local immigration activists, who tied the fight for justice in the county jail to the struggle to close migrant detention camps.Cleveland activists are circulating two petitions. One is to “Keep coronavirus out of Ohio’s jails, prisons and courts.” Another is to stop charging for electronic monitoring (tinyurl.com/ury7zxb/).

South Pasadena Police Arrest Driver with Large Amounts of Cash, Marijuana

first_img Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * A routine traffic stop on July 9 resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old Los Angeles man who was carrying $116,000 and nearly three pounds of marijuana in the trunk of his car.On Wednesday, July 9, 2019 at approximately 1 A.M., a South Pasadena Police Officer conducted a traffic enforcement stop in the 1100 block of Huntington Drive.When the officer approached the vehicle, he immediately smelled the odor of burnt marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. The officer asked the driver (who was the sole occupant) about the smell and the driver admitted to smoking marijuana while driving the vehicle.The driver was removed from the vehicle and was interviewed by the officer. He was asked about any additional marijuana in the vehicle and he admitted to possessing “a few pounds,” which were located inside the trunk. Officers gained consent to retrieve the marijuana from the trunk.Officers found almost three pounds of marijuana and $116,000 in U.S. currency. The subject was unable to justify the large amounts of drugs and cash, and was arrested under suspicion of illegally transporting marijuana for sale. He was transported to the South Pasadena Police station jail.Later that day, detectives obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s residence. Large amounts of marijuana and illegal firearms were seized at that location. The suspect is to be charged with multiple felonies.

Required fields are marked * More Cool Stuff CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday As news across the globe pronounced a shortage of protective equipment for critical workers, the Pasadena Educational Foundation turned to its longstanding 3D printing program in Pasadena Unified (PUSD) to focus on solutions.Soon after schools closed and distance learning went into effect, staff collected 18 of the 3D printers from various PUSD schools and brought them all to a new 3D Design Workshop at John Muir High School Early College Magnet, known for its popular Engineering and Environmental Science Academy and innovative 3D printing program.Teams are now using the printers to produce protective equipment for food service workers, volunteers, and healthcare workers.“We are addressing this critical need by producing and distributing useful items like face shields,” shared Monica Lopez, Marketing Director for PEF. The first 3D printed face shields have been distributed to food service workers currently distributing “grab and go” meals for PUSD students and families.Fast action was possible, since the successful 3D printing program is now more than a decade into its inception. “Years ago, a very generous member of our community had the foresight to envision the benefits that 3D printing technology would bring to students and the world.” Since then, PEF has provided 3D printers to nearly every PUSD school.“While students are learning at home, it’s great to see how the same tools they use in our design labs are now serving a critical need during a crisis,” said Shannon Mumolo, PUSD’s Coordinator of Signature Programs. “It’s important for students to see how the solutions they design each day have important applications outside of the classroom.”Students at Washington STEAM Multilingual Academy have been using 3D printers as part of their STEAM curriculum.Teacher Jason Trapp, who runs the Design Lab at Washington, supports students in activities like creating projects and objects for the district’s Innovation Exposition. “One of the categories is environmental innovation,” Trapp explained. “And so students have to invent a product that helps the environment, and the majority of the design is built from scratch,” said Trapp.Students use an online platform called TinkerCAD, a web-based version of a computer-aided design type program.The Washington STEAM Design Lab is currently in its second year. Trapp explained, “When I first started helping out in the design lab, students were working on small odds and ends projects like pencil holders. But as the programs evolved over the last two years, students have started to print more complex projects for their project-based learning units.”Students make models to help them better understand content in all subjects. For example, Trapp’s students made 3D printed models of artifacts while learning about ancient Mesopotamia.“Essentially,” said Trapp, “it’s an open space where teachers bring their classes in, where they can design products for their content areas. That’s everything from building Roman walls and Roman arches in seventh grade history to different engineering concepts from science class.”When schools reopen, the 3D printers will be redistributed to school sites, so that students may continue applying creativity and critical thinking to understand the past and to design solutions that meet the needs of the future. 71 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Business News Herbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty11 Signs Your Perfectionism Has Gotten Out Of ControlHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTop Important Things You Never Knew About MicrobladingHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Most Influential Women In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyTips From A Professional Stylist On How To Look Stunning In 2020HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Celebrity Body Parts Insured For Ridiculous AmountsHerbeautyHerbeauty Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more
