I stand among the people and we will fight and we will kill them if they want.”“Look at the people’s force. This is the people’s force that cannot be defeated.”“Do as you please.

Shots of Patron tequila and top-end versions of the club’s famous Treasure Chest cocktail did the rounds, although the centrepieces of the revelry were magnums and jeroboams of champagne – 13, to be precise, although The Capitalist hears the party gave some to other tables. Throw in a Rehoboam of Grey Goose, containing 4.5 litres of French-distilled vodka, and you have the makings of a record-breaking night. center_img whatsapp Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comConnecticut man dies after crashing Harley into live bearnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedia last_img read more

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Too nervous to invest in UK shares? 3 top stocks I think could make you rich, whatever happens I can understand why many UK share investors are suffering a crisis of confidence after the 2020 stock market crash.On the one hand, Covid-19 cases have spiked and the economic costs of the pandemic remain difficult to pin down. Investors are right to exercise caution in such a landscape. But, on the other hand, the 2020 crash means many UK shares appear much too cheap to miss.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I haven’t stopped buying UK shares. There are plenty of stocks out there that should thrive, even in the event of a painful global economic slowdown. And a great many of these have been grossly oversold by panicked buyers. This means you and I can pick them up at dirt-cheap prices and likely make a killing once market confidence improves and they rise in price.3 top UK shares for worried investorsI’d like to talk you through several defensive UK shares that even the most nervous of investors should think about buying right now:Utilities companies are some of the safest places to park your cash in times like these. Their profits remain broadly stable during economic upturns and downturns. One UK share I think’s a great buy today is FTSE 100 royalty National Grid. It has a rock-solid balance sheet that should allow it to keep raising its generous annual dividends, whatever happens to the global economy. And it remains committed to building its asset base in Britain and the US to bolster future earnings.Buying shares in Sylvania Platinum is a great way to hedge your bets over the timing of the economic recovery. Continued tension over the macroeconomic landscape will keep safe-haven demand for platinum group metals (PGMs) on the boil. And Sylvania can expect profits to rise during the recovery too as industrial demand for the metals improves. On top of this, precious metals prices should receive support from ultra-low interest rates. In this environment, demand for hard currencies should remain strong as inflationary fears erode confidence in paper currencies.Stock Spirits is another great recession-proof UK share for nervous investors to buy today. It’s not just because alcohol sales have a habit of rising, not falling, when economic downturns unfortunately occur. It’s that demand for premium spirits is ripping higher in Europe and now account for around half of the total market. And growth is particularly strong in Czechia and Poland, two of Stock Spirits’ biggest markets.Want to make some serious cash?So what are you waiting for? These UK shares show that there are still plenty of stocks out there that could make you lots of cash, regardless of the state of the global economy. And The Motley Fool, with its epic library of free special reports, can help you discover even more.

Valley House / Guilherme Machado Vaz

first_imgArchDaily CopyHouses•Vieira do Minho, Portugal Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Guilherme Machado Vaz Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Save this picture!+ 17 Share Valley House / Guilherme Machado Vaz Projects Portugal ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Valley House / Guilherme Machado VazSave this projectSaveValley House / Guilherme Machado Vaz “COPY” Text description provided by the architects. All the conception process of the Valley House starts with the Valley without the house, or either, with the confrontation of the architect with natural space. I started defining intentions. The will to respect the local topography and to take the people, through the house, to cover and to usufruct 10.000m2 of available area had been the first ones to appear. I wanted a proportionate volume in relation to the land. The idea of one lost object in the vast space did not please me, so I came up with a long and compact element embedded in the ground.Save this picture!To decide the plant of the house, I recouped a traditional typology of the region. A great veranda occupies the center of the house while the remaining divisions organize themselves around it demanding its place. The simplicity and logic of the traditional typology allowed its adaptation in the time.Save this picture!The house is directed towards the Valley and the Mountain range, the swimming pool stands in the opposite side, in the roof with its vegetal covering. I wanted a strong relation between the interior and the exterior but not a direct one, or either, there should be an ample visual contact but the physical transition from one space to the other could not be immediate for Nature in its entire splendor and the wild fauna imposed respect and even fear. Therefore, the big windows stand higher than the exterior level which transforms them into contemplation platforms. This level difference between the interior space and the exterior is enough to transmit comfort and security in days of absolute isolation.Save this picture!When you enter the site you see the house hidden behind nature without any constructed way to the entrance which makes it look even more as an isolated element in space. The first impression we have, when we arrive at the plain of the Valley, does not show the true form of the house, then, as you walk through the land, you get to discover the rest of the house gradually and that provokes a surprise effect when you finally get to see it all. This ` surprise element ‘ (Montesquieu) contributes to stimulate the observer and its perception of the relation between the space and the house. The architectonic experience is made to the base of sensorial stimulations. This project looked for, the best way that it could, to explore sensations through the perception of space.Save this picture!The entrance is a covered exterior space that gives access to the garage and to the interior of the house. The stairs lead to the entry hall that separates the veranda from the living room. In the living room we come across a great curtain that divides it in two distinct spaces, an introverted one, with the fireplace, and another one that opens to the exterior. This last one takes us by assault as the smashing sight of the mountain appears for the first time. In fact, the entire trip to the interior of the house is made with the mountain on your back, so you never get to see its beauty until then. Each space has a different relation with the surroundings which confers a unique identity to them. The opened veranda, protected by the trees, is a place of libation of nature, where we get lost inside ourselves.Save this picture!The bedroom’s area consists of two identical nucleuses with a hall, two rooms and bathroom. The rooms have access to the back garden that leads to the swimming pool. Finally, to close the corridor and in coherence with the regional tradition, the kitchen and the dinning room are in the same space. It makes sense to appreciate the meal in the place where it is made, where the complexity of the flavors flow freely to create the perfect aura.Save this picture!The house is made of concrete, used as a constructive and finishing element, searching a hard materiality and contrasting aesthetics with the chromatic and textural diversity of nature that encircles it. On the inside, this contrast is emphasized through the neutral color that coat walls and ceiling and by the ‘monotonous’ way that space is designed.Save this picture!Shelter was a question of survival for man, a turning point in its existence, the essential to continue. This house does not intend to be more than a shelter of body and soul. Without shelter, we are rocks in the rain.Project gallerySee allShow lessOcho al Cubo House / Sebastián IrarrazavalSelected ProjectsDolce & Gabbana Headquarters / PiuarchSelected Projects Share “COPY” 2005 CopyAbout this officeGuilherme Machado VazOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesVieira do MinhoPortugalPublished on June 17, 2008Cite: “Valley House / Guilherme Machado Vaz” 17 Jun 2008.

The grey brick house in the Hutong of Dongcheng District, Beijing was renovated into a residence for a young couple. This brick and concrete structured building, with two floors on the ground and one floor under the ground, is left by the previous owner. The house locates at the outermost of a small Hutong, there are another 5 householders inside. Due to the limitation of the privacy of the neighbors in the Hutong, the interior of the old house is closed and dark.Save this picture!© Xia ZhiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Wang NingThe designer’s purpose is to improve the interior structure based on the conditions of the old building, to reshape a bright, transparent and clean atmosphere for the interior space, and to form an interesting contrast with the exterior appearance of the old block. While facing with the complex and trivial situation, the designer uses “white” as the fundamental color, and brings the space back into a pure and abstract initial state through demolishing and extending, and creates the feeling of a flowing space by taking advantage of the changing lights and outdoor views.Save this picture!© Zhang Lin HanPart of the floor slabs of the original building have been cut off, through which the stairs are turned into a light beam that gets through all interior floors. The changeful natural light which reaches direct to the basement through the skylight brings the enclosed interior space to life. The 2cm steel stair treads and 5cm perforated steel handrails make the stairs a smooth and transparent props. While walking on them, people may feel like walking in the sky. The bare brick wall on the rear side of the stairs is kept and sprayed with white paint to create micro-comparison of new and old.Save this picture!© Xia ZhiThe numerous built-in bookcases are to meet the needs of the male host who loves to collect books.

Boston: Fight union busting, racism

first_imgThe Veolia Corporation’s campaign to break the Boston School Bus Drivers Union and rip up their contract is part of a broader austerity attack that targets the unions, public education and Boston’s African-American, Latino/a and immigrant communities.Workers World supports this all-important fight against union busting and austerity cutbacks. The mostly Haitian, Cape Verdean and African-American rank-and-file school bus drivers have shown exemplary fighting spirit in going up against the global union-busting Veolia.As this fight grows to include greater sectors of Boston’s communities, labor movement and progressive groups, the cynical anti-people attack can be turned around — and serve as a victory that can start to turn back the tide against the austerity being imposed from coast to coast on working people.Last October, when Veolia locked out the union and illegally fired four of its leaders, its union-busting intentions were clear.Since then, Boston Public Schools has also announced $107 million in public education cuts. This would not only eliminate hundreds of drivers’ jobs, but also kick 4,500 students off the school buses and onto the city’s already-overcrowded subway system, close schools, and lay off 250 teachers and classroom aides.The dismantling of school busing would effectively return Boston to the racist era of segregated, separate-but-unequal public education.The union’s citywide demonstration, Solidarity Day III, set for June 30, will oppose both the union-busting campaign and the school cutbacks. That date marks the expiration of the contract as well as the deadline for the Boston Public Schools’ austerity budget.The stakes in this struggle are high — as are the benefits of beating back this austerity attack. Local 8751 is a fighting union that shows no sign of backing down. Its membership has impressively and consistently turned out in the hundreds for militant demonstrations, meetings and job actions. Solidarity Day I in November and Solidarity Day II in February were both attended by hundreds of drivers.On numerous occasions masses of rank-and-file drivers — women and men — have gathered at the Veolia headquarters to stand outside a union grievance meeting and make their strength known to the company officials as they entered. This is not unusual for this local, whose workers have yard rallies every few days.The determination of the union to keep fighting and not give in has won it a growing coalition of allies. The local’s decades-long history of standing with the community in the fight to defend equal quality education has won them widespread support. The Black Educators Alliance of Massachusetts, Coalition for Equal Education, and veteran activists Mel King and Chuck Turner are just a few of the broad coalition of community supporters.The Massachusetts AFL-CIO and growing sections of the labor movement support the call for Solidarity Day III. A recent organizing meeting for Solidarity Day III included City Councilperson Charles Yancey; Touch 106 radio’s Charles Clemons; Jewish Voices for Peace, whose members oppose Veolia’s support for apartheid settlements in Palestine; a member of the Boston Teachers Union; the Coalition for Equal Quality Education; and others.Mobilizing these forces and building independent classwide and community solidarity are essential for a successful struggle to drive union-busters out of Boston. The power of Solidarity Day III can strengthen the bargaining position of Local 8751 in the fight to get a decent contract and restore the four fired leaders. Organized labor together with the oppressed community will serve notice to Veolia, the Boston School Department and Mayor Martin J. Walsh that union busting will not be tolerated in Boston. This solidarity in action will live the motto of the labor movement that “An injury to one is an injury to all.”All out for Solidarity Day III on June 30 in Boston!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Authorities shut down TV station and evict two newspapers and news agency in crackdown on independent media

first_img Help by sharing this information Stepping up their harassment of the independent and opposition media, the authorities have suspended the first independent TV station and have evicted two newspapers and a news agency from their premises. The independent press has been staging protests for several weeks against harassment and President Ilham Aliev’s authoritarian methods.

It retransmitted the BBC, Radio Free Europe and Voice of America radio stations on its frequency. We call on President Ilham Aliev to use his authority to allow ANS TV to resume broadcasting and to permit media pluralism.”Around 100 policemen overran the premises of the main opposition party, the leading opposition daily and the news agency Turan in order to carry out the evictions. They were ordered by the State Committee for Property Control, which claimed that an 1992 accord with Azadlig allowing it to use the premises free of charge under article 291 of the civil code was no longer legal.During the removal of equipment to other premises assigned to the media, far from the city centre, which took place on the morning of 25 November, part of Turan’s archives and computer equipment was damaged. Azadlig’s staff found the premises they were assigned were already occupied by people who refused to move out. Deputy editor Ali Rzayev said Azadlig would continue operating from the premises of Yeni Musavat, another opposition newspaper.The independent and opposition media have been staging peaceful protests ever since the threats of eviction and loss of licence were made known. They have also been protesting against arrests, prosecutions, beatings and murders of journalists, as well as economic and administrative harassment of the non-governmental media.Several journalists and editors have been on hunger strike since 9 November, including Azadlig editor Ganimat Zahidov, who had to be rushed to a Baku hospital on 23 November and who is still in a serious condition. Rallies in the city centre have been dispersed by police, who briefly arrested around 70 demonstrators (only 25, according to the police). to go further June 8, 2021 Find out more News April 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Coronavirus: RSF concerned for freedom of the press as Japan declares state of emergency

As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Japanese government declared today a state of emergency for most of the country, putting into effect its special measures law that entitles the government to give “instructions” to a number of designated companies and associations listed on its website, including public broadcaster NHK. Many have raised concerns that the ambiguous formulation of the law could be interpreted as an authorisation to infringe on the media’s editorial independence.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to remove NHK from the designated list and ensure that no other media is added. RSF also asks the Japanese lawmakers to modify the emergency law with due haste to make it fully compatible with the Japanese constitution and the Japanese Broadcasting Act, both of which guarantee press freedom.“When confronted with a public health crisis, independent information concerning measures taken by the authorities and the steps recommended to limit the spread of the epidemic are indispensable to the public,” said Cédric Alviani, RSF East Asia bureau head, who urges the Japanese government “to fully ensure media’s editorial independence and act with transparency.”On March 15th, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare apologised for posting inaccurate content on Twitter. Another false tweet also posted on 5th March aiming at attacking the TV Asahi’s news report on coronavirus.Since the nationalist leader Shinzo Abe took office as prime minister in 2012, many journalists have complained about a climate of mistrust and hostility coming from the government, which has tried on several occasions to interfere with the media’s editorial independence, including NHK.UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression David Kaye has expressed serious concerns about freedom of the press in Japan in 2017 and noted a further erosion of freedom in 2019.Japan ranked 67th out of 180 in the 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
