I will make you a sheltered house like the ones I love.” It is through an on going conversation between the architect and client that the realisation of this house was achieved. On an exceptional site, along the edge of the centre of Geneva, this white house, with its pure geometry, is a part in itself. If the square plan is the basis for its composition, it surprises through its malleability and functional complexity. Save this picture!Courtesy of Christian Dupraz ArchitectesThe central staircase sets the tone for the vertical distribution; it is the vital object that dispenses all the various rooms in a compositional game close to the Raumplan by Adolf Loos. Through the offset of the plan and the biased position of the ridge, together with the affirmation of two identical pinions, the house offers amazing form variations on the façade. The multiple window frames of varying dimensions situate the house in a contemporary reinterpretation of a certain tradition.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessEstar House / REC ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsLa Petite Brioche / Binomio EstudioSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House for an Art Collector / Christian Dupraz Architectes ArchDaily Save this picture!Courtesy of Christian Dupraz Architectes+ 16 Share House for an Art Collector / Christian Dupraz ArchitectesSave this projectSaveHouse for an Art Collector / Christian Dupraz Architectes Year:  Projects “COPY” Area:  690 m² Area:  690 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Christian Dupraz Architectes Area Area of this architecture project Switzerland “COPY” 2010 CopyHouses•Cologny, Switzerland 2010 Year:  Photographs CopyAbout this officeChristian Dupraz ArchitectesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesColognyHousesSwitzerlandPublished on November 12, 2013Cite: “House for an Art Collector / Christian Dupraz Architectes” 12 Nov 2013.

Fast food workers doing ‘Whatever it takes’ to win

first_imgThousands of fast food workers fighting for a $15 hourly wage and union protection walked off their jobs on Sept. 4 in more than 150 U.S. cities. Some 465 workers and their supporters were arrested during the one-day strike for engaging in acts of civil disobedience, blocking streets around McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and other fast food chains.This was the 10th day of strikes since the campaign began 21 months earlier in New York City after “Thanksgiving” 2012. It was also the first strike since 1,300 fast food workers held a national convention in July outside of Chicago, where workers vowed to do “whatever it takes” to win their goals.With wages as low as $7.25 an hour, fast food workers’ earnings average $18,880 a year — below the federal poverty level for a family of two. More than 52 percent of these workers are forced to rely on public assistance. Meanwhile, U.S. fast food restaurants expect profits of $7.2 billion this year, according to research company IBISWorld, with fast food CEOs paid 1,200 times more than their workers.Protests from coast to coastFast food workers employed by Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Sonic, Long John Silver’s, Jr. Crickets and other chains took to the busy streets of Atlanta, where they were joined by home health care workers, union members from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the Communication Workers, the Service Employees, UNITE HERE, the Teamsters, the United Auto Workers, the Food and Commercial Workers and several postal workers unions, as well as faith and community groups.The first protest began at 6 a.m. outside a midtown Burger King. At lunchtime more than 150 people gathered in front of Wendy’s at a busy intersection, then marched to a nearby McDonald’s. Occupying a major thoroughfare, chanting “We can’t survive on $7.25!” 10 workers sat down on the street holding a banner reading “Whatever it takes.”The police shut the street down in both directions. No cars entered the McDonald’s drive-thru, nor were pedestrians able to enter the restaurant during the peak noontime hour. As police ordered them to move, young Black workers threw their hands up and chanted “Hands up! Don’t shoot!” — the phrase heard in Ferguson and across the U.S. demanding an end to police abuse.More than 100 fast food protesters and supporters in Philadelphia marched a mile from a McDonald’s at Broad Street and Girard Avenue to a McDonald’s in Center City, chanting and holding signs demanding “$15 and a union.” The rally ended with the arrest of 11 workers who refused police orders to get off the street.Fast food workers and their supporters staged two actions in Oakland, Calif., starting at 6:30 a.m. with a march on a Jack In the Box that had fired three workers a week earlier after they signed union cards. With doors locked, workers pounded on the drive-thru window demanding a response from management on the firings. The next stop was a McDonald’s a block away, where workers marched inside for a half-hour rally, chanting “¡McDonald’s escucha! ¡Estamos en la lucha!” [Listen up, McDonalds! We are in struggle!]Workers and supporters regrouped at 11 a.m. at Oscar Grant Plaza in downtown Oakland, and then took to the street. Blocking the intersection on Broadway and 13th Street in front of a Burger King for an hour, they chanted: “Hold the burgers! Hold the fries! Make our wages supersized!” Several fast food workers and union organizers then sat down in the street and were arrested, cited and released.Even after Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a plan to raise the city’s minimum wage to $13.25 by 2017, hundreds of workers turned out to demand $15 an hour at two locations. At a South Los Angeles McDonald’s, protesters held a loud rally and then marched inside, chanting “L.A. is union territory!” Activists from the L.A. Workers Assembly signed up volunteers to petition to put a citywide minimum wage of $15 on the ballot in 2015. Union organizers and fast food workers signed up to get signatures in the four-month drive, soon to start.A San Diego rally and march for $15 and a union kicked off at 5:30 a.m., when more than 100 people gathered at a McDonald’s in the City Heights neighborhood. These courageous workers left work to raise awareness that people cannot survive on $7.75 or even $9 an hour. The action was hosted by the Coalition for Labor and Community Solidarity, a group of community activists, students, union members, and Walmart retail and fast food workers united to build strength among San Diego workers.Rally chair, the Rev. J. Lee Hill, reminded everyone of the long history of workers engaging in civil disobedience for change, from Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr. to César Chávez. Eleven protesters, who sat at the intersection of University Avenue and the I-15 freeway entrance, were arrested, charged with unlawful assembly and later released. They said they were willing to get arrested to bring attention to the fact that everyday working families are making incredible sacrifices.There were numerous major low-wage worker actions in Wisconsin. In Madison and Milwaukee dozens of workers were arrested after walking off their jobs or not going to work at all, and then sitting in roadways to demand “$15 and a union.” Other actions took place in Wausau. The actions were organized by Raise Up MKE and Wisconsin Jobs Now with support from many labor and community organizations, including the Wisconsin AFL-CIO and Workers World Party.In Rockford, Ill., low-wage workers, including Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) member Tommy Cavanaugh, took arrests for blocking roadways to demand $15 and a union.In Durham, N.C., workers took over a series of busy intersections, blocking traffic in each for an hour or more, and then moving to the next location. Workers chanted and danced around those obstructing traffic, accompanied by supporters pounding on drums, for nearly three hours. When the protest reached one of the busiest intersections at West Main and Great Jones streets in the downtown area, 23 workers sat in the middle of the street for over an hour. Police eventually arrested 26 protesters, including the workers, two campaign organizers and an attorney supporting the movement.In Detroit hundreds of people began their demonstrations at 6:30 a.m., targeting a McDonald’s restaurant on the east side. Protesters blocked Mack Avenue on the city’s east side, prompting the police to move against demonstrators. Due to the 25 arrests, officers ran out of handcuffs.In many cases, police say, the protesters were given the option to be released from custody, if they would just stop blocking the street. Police said that some of the protesters refused to stop and were arrested.From Ferguson to NYCAround 200 fast food workers protested outside a McDonald’s on Detroit’s east side. Police arrested 42 people who were blocking an intersection. Another 23 workers were arrested in Chicago when more than 150 fast food workers protested outside a McDonald’s.In New York actions started before dawn, when fast food workers protesting against McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and KFC blocked traffic in Times Square. Later around 400 protesters filled Times Square during morning rush hour. Some staged a sit-in at a McDonald’s, leading to the arrests of 34 cooks and cashiers. Demonstrators carried signs reading “Low Pay is Not OK” and “On Strike to Lift My Family Up.”Jeanina Jenkins, a McDonald’s worker from Ferguson, Mo., joined the New York fast food action out of respect for the family of Michael Brown. Jenkins said she believed the August protests over Brown’s death would be on the minds of many striking workers. “We’re fighting for the same thing, basically,” she said. (The Daily Rundown, Sept. 4)In addition to fighting for a living wage, the striking workers want McDonald’s and other fast food chains to agree not to block their unionization drives. For the first time, fast food workers’ protests in several cities were joined by home care workers, helping to push the fight for $15 to become a larger low-wage workers’ movement.Terri Kay, Dianne Mathiowetz, Bryan G. Pfiefer, Joe Piette, Scott Scheffer, Abayomi Azikiwe and Gloria Verdieu contributed to this report.

Pasadena Sees 3 New COVID-19 Deaths, 13 New Cases on Friday

first_img Subscribe Community News Pasadena Sees 3 New COVID-19 Deaths, 13 New Cases on Friday State Surpasses 14,000 Fatalities By BRIAN DAY Published on Friday, September 11, 2020 | 3:57 pm Following more than a week without any reported COVID-19 fatalities, three additional deaths were reported in Pasadena on Friday, along with 13 new cases, city officials said,The three new deaths all took place at assisted living facilities, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said. They involved a man in his late-80s, a woman in her late-80s and a man in his 90s.,Derderian added that Pasadena Public Health Department officials had expected case numbers to increase from the single-digits seen in recent days as more people are able to get coronavirus tests following the Labor Day holiday weekend.She pointed to declining hospitalization rates as a positive sign.Huntington Hospital reported treating 22 COVID-19 patients on Friday. Five tests were pending.With smoke and ash from nearby wildfires creating horrendous air quality, Derderian urged everyone to “stay inside as much as possible, even if you are a healthy individual.”Runners exercising at the Rose Bowl loop on Friday told officials they thought their COVID-19 masks would protect them from smoke as well, according to Derderian. That is not the case.The tiny and hazardous particles generated by a wildfire can easily penetrate cloth coverings, Derderian said. Wearing a face mask should not lull people into a “false sense of security” whenIt comes to smoke.Officials at the county level reported 1,115 new detected infections and 43 additional deaths, bringing the county totals to 252,066 COVID-19 cases and cases and 6,171 fatalities.The daily number of hospitalizations throughout the county continued a steady decline, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said in a written statement.Officials reported 889 patients were being treated at county facilities, with 33% of them in intensive care units.“Similar to the numbers seen in early April, daily hospitalizations have dropped back to an average of under 1,000 hospitalizations a day,” according to the county statement.Health officials also noted three new cases of the COVID-19-related illness MIS-C in children in L.A. County, bringing the total to 34. No fatalities have been reported from MIS-C in the county.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer used the occasion of the 19th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks to pay homage to those who have died from the pandemic, as well as those fighting to stop it.“Today, as we remember the lives lost on September 11, 2001 and extend our gratitude to all the first responders for their courage and service, we also take a solemn pause to pay respect to the 6,171 people who lost their lives to COVID-19 in L.A. County and reflect on our heroic healthcare workers that have responded selflessly to the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.“Our Country came together after 9/11 and forged a new path forward; today, we have also been asked to come together and learn how to live through the COVID-19 pandemic. We give thanks to all who helped us get through the devastation brought by 9/11, and to all who are helping us get through COVID-19,” Ferrer said.The county’s overall positivity rate remained at 10%, with more than 2.4 million tests administered, officials said.The California Department of Public Health announced 3,326 new infections and 111 new deaths on Friday. The state had recorded 746,191 total infections and 14,089 deaths in all since the onset of the pandemic.The statewide average positivity rate over the previous week was 3.7%, with the 14-day average at 4%, according to a CDPH statement.As of Friday, Los Angeles County accounted for 34% of California COVID-19 infections and 44% of the state’s total fatalities.

Skier dies after avalanche at New Mexico’s Taos ski resort, officials say

first_imgRoschetzkyIstockPhoto/iStock(TAOS, N.M.) — A skier has died after getting trapped in an avalanche at Taos Ski Valley in New Mexico on Thursday, a ski resort official said Friday morning.A second person was injured in the incident.Both men were trapped for 22 minutes after the avalanche sent snow pummeling down a mountain around 11:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, Chris Stagg, vice president of Taos Ski Valley, Inc., told ABC News.Rescuers dug the skiers out and transported them to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, Stagg said.Their names have not been released.After the avalanche, rescuers searched for other people possibly buried under the snow, ABC Albuquerque affiliate KOAT reported. The snow is so deep in some areas that probes being used to locate people cannot reach the bottom, Stagg said.It is unclear what triggered the avalanche, which occurred on the K3 shoot off Kachina Peak, the ski resort wrote on Twitter.The lift for Kachina Peak just opened on Wednesday, according to The Taos News. The lift rises to about 1,100 feet to take expert skiers and snowboarders to the top of the mountain, the newspaper reported. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
