The reinvention of a badly degraded, but significant 1879 Neo-Grec townhouse on Manhattan’s Upper East Side negotiates and balances the building’s history and context with a desire for a forward-looking, contemporary residence. This is accomplished largely through an exceptional attention to craft, augmented by digital methods for design, coordination, and a broadly collaborative approach.Save this picture!ContextThe machine-produced decoration and crisp, incised ornamental surfaces that are characteristic of the Neo-Grec style were projected forward to a contemporary context, informing current and forward-looking processes of making like computer controlled milling and other contemporary manufacturing methods.Save this picture!© Alan TanseySave this picture!All plansSave this picture!© Alan TanseyConceived as both a family home and a setting for large-scale entertaining and events, the house is organized around multi-directional and multi-level circulation. Opportunities for light, air, and circulation to enliven the interior and exterior on the highly constrained site were developed through generous vertical openings and glazed double height spaces that emphasize the building’s grand proportions and create visual and spatial connections between floors.Save this picture!CirculationNotable collaborations enabled by this design approach include a site-specific installation by artist Sarah Oppenheimer, integrated into the top floor of the building. Comprised of a flush walkable skylight, an aluminum manifold, and a front-silvered mirror, the artwork reflects a perpetually vertical slice of sky into the space of the main stair and library, and introduces a skewed angle into the overall geometry of the mid-block building, as well as a strong linkage between interior and exterior spaces that also informs the design of the rooftop penthouse, exterior spaces, and the rear facade.Save this picture!© Alan TanseyThe facade makes extensive use of sculpted terracotta elements, and incorporates a vertical garden, designed in collaboration with SUNY conservation botanists, that features a host of native woodland flora. Some plantings used are federally endangered species due to the impact of climate change, and are being propagated for the first time as a test case in urban conservation gardening. Intensive environmental analysis informed the geometry of the facade and planter elements which creates passively differentiated nano gradients of temperature, exposure, and moisture for a variety of native plantings.Save this picture!Rear facade sectionSave this picture!© Alan TanseySave this picture!SchemeThroughout the house, works of design by emerging and independent American designers and studios is integrated with significant works of modernist design from Italy, Scandinavia, and the United States.

Grain Elevators Want EU Approval before Accepting Dicamba-Tolerant Soybeans

DTN reports the elevators are saying they cannot accept the soybeans unless the European Union accepts the trait. Dicamba-tolerant soybeans produced from the Roundup Ready 2 Xtend trait are due to commercialize this spring. A Monsanto spokesperson says the company expects EU approvals on the trait “in the immediate future.” An ADM spokesman told DTN “the company has a general policy not to accept grain or oilseeds that contain GE traits that do not have approval from our major export markets.” In the last marketing year, the EU accounted for 9 percent of soybean exports and 10 percent of soybean meal exports. China approved the trait early last month.Also troubling farmers, the Environmental Protection Agency has yet to approve a dicamba herbicide to use with the new trait.Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Two bloggers held by Revolutionary Guards could face death penalty

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa September 23, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two bloggers held by Revolutionary Guards could face death penalty News Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists June 9, 2021 Find out more Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Prison conditions, forced confessions February 25, 2021 Find out more to go further Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about serious human rights violations by the Revolutionary Guards against journalists and netizens held in Iranian prisons. Prosecutors may be about to request the death penalty for two bloggers who have been detained since 2008, Vahid Asghari and Hossein Derakhshan.“The serious charges against Asghari and Derakhshan, which are completely groundless, are punishable by the death penalty under Islamic law,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The international community must intervene and demand explanations from President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is backed by the Revolutionary Guards, and from the judicial authorities, who are abusing the law.”Organised Crime Surveillance CentreEver since its creation by the Revolutionary Guards in March 2009, the Organised Crime Surveillance Centre has played an active role in tracking down and arresting outspoken netizens.Shortly after its creation, the centre announced the dismantling of a “malevolent” online network in March 2009 and the arrests of several website moderators. Their photos and “confessions” were posted on the centre’s website, Gerdab (www.gerdab.ir), a few days later. They reportedly admitted to links with websites that criticised Islam and the government, and to their intention of “misleading” Iranian youth by publicising porn sites. They also confessed to participating in a plot supported by the Americans and Israelis.On 17 June 2009, two days after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection triggered a wave of street protests, the centre issued a communiqué announcing that it had noted “several cases of websites and personal blogs posting articles inciting disturbances of public order and urging the population to rebel.”“These sites, created with the help of American and Canadian companies, receive the support of media that are protected by the American and British security services such as the BBC, Radio Farda (Free Europe) and Radio Zamaneh,” the statement added, urging website managers to suppress “content that incites the population to riot and spreads threats and rumours.”One of the Revolutionary Guard commanders, Ebrahim Jabari, officially confirmed on 20 May of this year that a “cyber army” had been created to crack down on “destructive” online networks. The “cyber army” has reportedly been responsible for the arrests of hundreds of netizens and attacks on such websites as Twitter and the Radio Zamaneh site.

Asghari, a leading target of the “network dismantling” policy, is one of the victims of such abuses. Aged 24 and an ICT student in India, he was arrested on 11 May 2008 at Tehran airport for possessing several credit cards. He is still awaiting trial more than two years later.He was held in solitary confinement for seven month and was mistreated and tortured to make him confess to organising a pornographic network that blasphemed Islam and criticised the government in order to pervert Iranian youth. And what was Asghari’s crime ? Hosting websites, including the sites of government opponents.“I was beaten with a stick for hours and hours while blindfolded and handcuffed,” he wrote in a letter to the president of the 15th chamber of the Revolutionary Court on 17 October 2009. “With a knife against my throat, I was threatened with death and rape. I and my family were insulted. I was forced to make a confession and sign it. They then videoed my confession and broadcast the video with the national television station’s complicity although I was legally presumed to be innocent.”According to article 168 of the constitution, defendants prosecuted on political charges should be given public, jury trials but most of the trials have been held behind closed doors. Their lawyers are often sidelined and denied access to the case files and in some cases defendants were not told they had been tried and condemned. Asghari said in his letter : “I have never seen my lawyer and, even in court, I did not have the right to say hello to him.”Asghari also wrote : “I was alleged to have received money from abroad as a result of Google advertising on the websites I hosted. I was accused of insulting the Shiite Imams and the Prophet because of their content. And I was forced to say that Hossein Derakhshan was an agent of both the Iranian ministry of intelligence and the CIA.”Derakhshan, who has Iranian and Canadian dual nationality, was arrested by Revolutionary Guards on 1 November 2008. He was given a trial without due process and has remained in detention even since awaiting the court’s verdict.A trumped-up charge of “insulting government leaders and Islam’s holy texts” was brought against him although he clearly defended not only the Islamic revolution’s principles but also President Ahmadinejad’s policies in his blog entries. He appears to be a collateral victim of the in-fighting between the Revolutionary Guards and the Iranian intelligence services. Sign the petition calling for his release.Two other bloggers, Kouhyar Goudarzi and Hossien Ronaghi Maleki, are also being held in extremely arduous conditions.“Canada and the rest of the international community must redouble their efforts to get the Iranian authorities to release all of the imprisoned netizens and journalists,” Reporters Without Borders added. Nine netizens and 26 journalists are currently detained in Iran, which is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Enemies of the Internet.” News Organisation Newslast_img read more

Cash flow helps Limerick boat club raise the roof

THANKS to a significant contribution from the JP McManus Benevolent Fund, the Limerick Boat Club can get back in full action with a new boathouse roof.Founded in 1870, the club made headlines when dramatic footage of the clubhouse roof being whipped off during Storm Darwin went viral.The roof was totally destroyed in the 2014 storm, badly damaging the interior and some of the equipment. Since then the club has been continuously fundraising.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Club members got the good news over Christmas and, according to Club Captain Hannah Fitch, they hope to begin work in the spring.“The structural design has to be completed and tenders sought to get the best value for money for our donors and members,” she explained.“It has been very difficult on many fronts. For instance, we have no showers or changing areas. Storage of equipment and boats is inadequate. As the boats are stored in the building without the roof,  they are subject to excessive weathering and are beginning to show signs of this. These factors have made recruiting new members challenging.“However, we have increased membership since 2014 – new members and returning oars-people, through the determination and dedication of our members. We successfully run learn to row camps, have six new coaches with two more undertaking the necessary training to qualify.“There is a planned programme of organised camps and activities for next season and we are well on our three to four year target,” Ms Fitch said.Limerick City fire and rescue personnel secure what remains of the boathouse roof after Storm Darwin.With the cost of reinstating the roof estimated at €100,000, the club will need to continue fundraising in order to complete the project.“We have no plans to change the club house, but there are future plans being discussed to restore some of the original architectural features and details of the 1885 building lost in renovations in 1985. Our current priority however is to reinstate our boat house for security and safety and increase participation in the sport both recreationally and competitively,” she added.The next few months are going to be a busy time for the club as on January 21 they are holding a gate collection outside the club, February there’s a table quiz and an art auction on February 25 which will have 40 pieces of art donated by local artists, a sponsored row in March and rowing camps throughout the year for companies as part of team building exercises.Ms Fitch said that having the boathouse again, “will mean the continuation of our 148 year tradition in rowing, allow us increase our membership and allow new participants of all ages and abilities to enjoy the city’s greatest natural resource from our city centre rowing facility.”Details for the clubs Gofundme can be found here center_img Email Castleconnell gives added depth to Limerick rowing Print TAGSClub CaptainclubhousedamageequipmentHannah FitchJP McManus Benevolent FundlimerickLimerick Boat ClubmembershiproofStorm Darwin Anger at famine statue damage 62 Limerick youth groups benefit from Government funding Van driver one of many incredible escapes during Storm Darwinlast_img read more

Food Hubs

first_imgIn recent years, local food advocates have viewed food hubs — groups of farmers who pool their produce to fill large orders from institutions or larger retailers — as the bridge between local produce from small farms and the mainstream food markets. However, the idea is still new, and many farmers are unsure how to get a new hub started or make a currently working food hub last. Carrie Furman, an anthropologist working in the University of Georgia Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, recently received a $230,000 grant from USDA’s Southern Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education program to develop a best practices guide for developing and maintaining successful food hubs. Julia Gaskin, sustainable agriculture coordinator for the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and Hilda Kurtz, local food systems researcher in the UGA Department of Geography, will join Furman in the study. “We’re looking to tease out what works best for the farmers and managers and how they marry the mission of their particular food hubs with the market realities,” Furman said. “We’re also looking at what all this means for the quality of life for farmers and what this means for local food. We want to find out how we can start meeting the demand for local food in Georgia.” A recent UGA survey of small- to mid-size Georgia farmers found that about 90 percent were interested in forming food hubs to help them market their produce to larger buyers. While there are several working food hubs in Georgia, little research has been done on what makes some work better than others, and little guidance is available to farmers who want to start food hubs. Furman and her colleagues will look at three different food hub models to identify what makes each successful. She will focus on Moore’s Farm and Friend in Roanoke, Alabama, which started as an informal group of farmers who are friends; the Southwest Georgia Project Cooperative, a group of small farmers who started a non-profit food hub; and The Turnip Truck, a for-profit produce consolidation company owned by an outside entrepreneur who is not a farmer. Because of her background in anthropology, Furman has included Faidra Papavasiliou, an anthropologist at Georgia State University, to help establish a field research course for students who want to study how food hubs affect farmers and the economic impact of local food. The students will use traditional anthropological practices, like participant observation, and reflect on their experiences working in farmers’ fields and working to get produce to market. The researchers hope the course, which will be offered through Georgia State but open to students from other universities, will attract students studying geography, anthropology, agricultural economics and other fields. Lurleen Walters, an assistant professor of agricultural economics at Mississippi State University, will provide economic analysis of each food hub and its economic impact. At the end of the three-year study, Furman hopes to produce a set of best practices that will help Georgia farmers take advantage of larger markets by forming food hubs.
