The ZAC Clichy-Batignolles is perceived as a new landscape of connection, a wide-open urban door along the major territorial arches towards the historic city.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe site becomes an important urban platform, an exchange node inserted into the system of great Parisian relational spaces. It holds a role of transition between different scales, them being territorial, urban, environmental, social, cultural, and infrastructure standpoints. The ZAC thus acts as a device of resonance and multi-district transfer.Save this picture!Site PlanThe ZAC Clichy-Batignolles and the Martin Luther King Park are based in a large relational space, an interface of connection lines and urban relationships: powerlines, flowlines, lines of connection and interaction. Echoing the adjacent buildings, the project inserts itself in a coherent and consistent elegance.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaAn island crossing One of the fundamental characteristics of the project is the creation of an almost complete opening in the block, perpendicular to the Martin Luther King Park. This opening acts as a true extension of the park, prolonging it to the heart of the block and bringing it to the street and beyond, until the E9 lot.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThus, nothing obstructs the view from the park to the lot and vice versa. The school group and other residences also benefit from the relatively clear views over the park. Furthermore, greater transparency has been sought at the ground level of the project, completing the idea of a maximal link from the park to the street.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!ElevationSearch for compactness and views This opening constitutes as well, and more importantly, the integration of an environmental strategy. This provision implicates creating thicker buildings, as opposed to the hypothesis of a U disposition. The buildings thus created will be more dense and compact, significantly reducing energy loss. Moreover, due to this configuration no accommodation will be mono-oriented street side. They will therefore benefit from openings overlooking the park and sunny climate.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!6th Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sergio GraziaMoving masses The two buildings comprising the residences are broken down into volumes of different heights, the tallest building’s height being 50 meters. These new created blocks are superimposed and offset from each other. The objective is to create dynamic movement over static volumetries, more rhythm than fixed objects. These movements and rhythms associated with the already rich architecture of the immediate context allow to create new “sounds of the city”. Furthermore, these offsets allow for more outdoor space and for the optimization of the city-planning rules, particularly the perspectives. The architectural strategy of this project is the result of a thorough reflection to avoid an IGH (high-rise building) classification of the building.

In the coming months we will work closely with business, charities and volunteers to deliver a new scheme to tackle this problem. “The scheme will specifically address surplus food from retail and manufacturing. This is just one part of the problem. Further action to cut food waste from all sources is being considered as part of Defra’s Resources and Waste Strategy, which will be published later this year.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis15 Tagged with: environment Funding The Government has promised an extra £15 million of funding and a new scheme to reduce food waste by diverting surpluses to charities, Environment Secretary Michael Gove has announced.The fund will be used to offset the cost of diverting surplus food within the supply chain to charities, with a scheme to be developed over the coming months in collaboration with businesses and charities, before launching in 2019/20. The scheme will specifically address surplus food from retail and manufacturing.According to figures from FareShare, the food saved could provide almost 250 million meals a year for those in need. Lindsay Boswell, FareShare CEO, said:“£15m can create almost 250 million meals worth of food a year for those in need, preventing in date food from being wasted. That amount of food could provide every single person in Britain with three square meals for one day.“Instead this food will go to frontline charities such as breakfast clubs for children, hospices, domestic violence refuges and homeless hostels. This will deliver almost £800m a year in overall savings, both in cash terms for the charities themselves and the knock on savings to schools, the NHS, within the criminal justice system and in health and social care.”“This £15 million fund will mean FareShare and other charities in this vital area can dramatically scale up their operations – supplying ten times more fresh surplus food to charities, and delivering at least £500 million in social value every year.”The Government estimates that around 43,000 tonnes of surplus food is currently redistributed from retailers and food manufacturers every year. It is estimated a further 100,000 tonnes of food – equating to 250 million meals a year – is edible and readily available but is currently sent away for generating energy from waste, anaerobic digestion, or animal feed. Defra is commissioning work to improve the evidence base around food waste, including understanding why more surplus food is not being redistributed. This work will inform the design of the scheme.Environment Secretary Michael Gove said: Advertisement 110 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis15 Image: FareShare.

NYS farmworkers win right to organizeThe state appellate court in Albany, N.Y., ruled May 23 that excluding farmworkers from a state law protecting workers’ right to organize and collectively bargain without fear of retaliation is unconstitutional.“This is a victory for farmworkers,” said Crispin Hernandez, a member of the Workers’ Center of Central New York in Syracuse, who initiated the suit after he was fired from his job at Marks Dairy in Lowville in 2016 for striving to organize fellow workers after hours. “All workers deserve to have a voice and be heard at their place of work, and farmworkers deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.” The Workers Center of CNY and the Worker Justice Center of New York joined Hernandez in the suit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. As workerscny.org noted in its May 23 statement, “Agriculture is big business in New York, and the work is difficult. Most of the farmworkers are immigrants and, without the same protections as other workers, they are particularly vulnerable to abuse and exploitation.” However, the powerful Farm Bureau, which represents the interests of New York state farm owners, fought against the exclusion and plans to appeal the 4-1 ruling. Workers Center of CNY lead organizer Rebecca Fuentes said, “Farm workers make essential contributions to New York and to all of our lives. Their labor produces the food, nutrition, and money that sustain our economy and our communities.”According to workerscny.org, state lawmakers are also considering legislation to grant farmworkers the same rights as almost all other hourly workers in New York state, including overtime pay and a day of rest. Fuentes observed that the ruling promotes passage of the long-overdue Farmworkers Fair Labor Practices Act, which would codify those protections.Sex workers’ union fights Instagram discriminationInstagram’s taking money from sex workers. What are the sex workers doing? Organizing and fighting back! The Adult Performers Actors Guild is a new union whose mission, like others, is to bargain and fight for better wages. (“All Things Considered,” npr.com, April 30) Their most recent struggle against Instagram is sparking attention; the APAG has publicly called out the Facebook-owned, photo-sharing giant for discrimination.In a statement, the APAG raised that Instagram deletes sex worker, porn star and adult model accounts just for existing, while “celebrities like Kim Kardashian and countless other Instagram Verified celebrities post images with full nudity, exposed nipples, bare backside and more. Each photo, with its millions of LIKES, contributes to those women’s already massive incomes, as well as Instagram’s own bank account.” (APAGunion.com, April 18) Alice Evans, president of APAG, raises that adult performers have also monetized their accounts and used their platforms for promotion. Instagram’s uneven ban on those accounts, while keeping those of celebrities, is grounds for discrimination. The union’s legal counsel wrote to Facebook April 22 and 30, but Facebook ignored them. So the APAG decided to craft a petition. Some 500 performers and models sent letters to Facebook and Instagram asking the companies to stop removing their accounts. APAG is still surveying members of the adult performance community to see how platforms are blocking or banning them. (vice.com, May 6) Their next idea? A June 19 Instagram strike outside the company’s New York and California offices! (@APAGunion, May 25)Airline mechanics win struggle for safety in new contact After a very contentious, nearly 7-year struggle for a new contract involving two lawsuits over safety issues, 2,500 Southwest Airlines mechanics voted overwhelmingly May 21 for a new 5-year contract. Represented by the Aircraft Mechanics union (AMFA), the workers won $160 million in back pay as a bonus to cover the years after the last contract ended in August 2012, a 20 percent increase in wages as of April 1, and 3 percent annual raises in August. The AMFA noted in a statement that its major concession was allowing Southwest to continue outsourcing some work to foreign contractors. The contract is a far cry from Southwest’s suit against the union in March for a so-called “illegal work slowdown” that forced the cancellation of 100 flights a day for weeks. The Federal Aviation Administration warned both sides that the dispute could hurt the safety of the airline, which carries more passengers on domestic flights than any other airline. No wonder Southwest changed its tune at the table!As of May 21, American Airlines sued its mechanics on May 20. Bloomberg noted that Southwest might be seen as a more reliable option in cities where the two airlines compete.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News News to go further Help by sharing this information ItalyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassmentEconomic pressure Beppe Grillo, the leader of Italy’s Five Star Movement (M5S), commented ironically about Reporters Without Borders (RSF) shortly after RSF published the 2017 World Press Freedom Index on 26 April. Grillo wrote: “Today, I learned that I was the cause of the press freedom problem in Italy, that is what RSF’s report says. This was an eye-opener for me.” The M5S leader added: “If media coverage is no good, it’s my fault.” “Beppe Grillo is caricaturing RSF and that is all the more regrettable given the use he made of the Press Freedom Index in the past, when he was excited about Italy’s score,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “RSF clearly doesn’t hold him responsible for the press freedom situation in Italy. The country’s ranking is due to political pressure and to threats by mafia-style criminal groups. Nonetheless, the creation of ‘people’s juries’ to reorient the media that ‘manufacture fake news,’ as proposed by Beppe Grillo, is worrying for freedom of information in Italy.” Italy is ranked 52nd in the 2017 Press Freedom Index, 25 places higher than last year. The rise is due in part to a major campaign by Italy’s press freedom groups in support of two Italian journalists prosecuted in the Vatileaks case, and to the determination with which many journalists continue to fight for their freedom despite all the pressure and threats.

#HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy NewsLocal NewsLimerick councillor expresses concern over funeral costsBy Alan Jacques – April 25, 2014 694 Advertisement TAGSCllr Daniel ButlerDepartment of Social ProtectionFine Gaelfuneral costsMusic Limerick Twitter Email Facebook Cllr Daniel ButlerA LIMERICK county councillor has expressed grave concerns over the rising cost of funerals.According to Cllr Daniel Butler, most people pay somewhere between €3,000 to €5,000 for a funeral, but costs can run as high as €10,000 to bury their loved one.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Fine Gael member for Limerick City West, whose late father Richie, a former Council Cathaoirleach, died last December after battling cancer, is now urging people to have a conversation with their family about their wishes for their burial.“This is a matter I know we all feel uncomfortable talking about but it is a part of life,” said Cllr Butler.He claims that the cost of buying a grave in Limerick is “reasonable enough” in comparison with Dublin. However, he warned of hidden charges that could push the total cost of a funeral towards the heavens.“There is a hidden charge of €150 for planning permission to erect a gravestone. I cannot understand this charge. You are obviously going to erect a gravestone for your loved one, so why do we need to get planning and pay €150 for this?” he asked.“To open a grave for a coffin, you are looking at €250 and for an urn, the cost can come to €200.“Cremtorium costs, with a priest providing prayers. is €875 and that does not include transportation costs which can amount to over €1,000. Coffins are averaging €500 with urns averaging €150 to 200. An average gravestone in Ireland is €1,500 but most will pay over €2,000. This all adds up,” he said.Cllr Butler went on to remind people of the financial support available from the Department of Social Protection who, on a case-by-case basis, can provide support as an exceptional needs payment. Average payment from the Department are in and around €1,300.“I just want to highlight the issue and make people aware of the costs involved. It is a difficult enough time as it is without having to face the stresses of paying such large sums of money.“We often do not question these costs as the last thing on our minds is to assess if its a fair price or if we can afford it. You just want to pay a fitting tribute for your loved one.“I hope this might start a conversation in family homes about how they are going to prepare for this inevitable and painful time,” Cllr Butler concluded.

I sleep on the couch. My daughter has the other room downstairs. We need a bungalow. I can’t manage here anymore and I could drop dead at any moment with this disease,” he said.Noel has been hospitalised five times in the last year with his condition.His problems are compounded by the fact that his landlord has said he needs to sell the home he is renting in Cronan Lawn in Shannon.The former market trader went as far as writing to the Ombudsman when he could get no information about his status on the housing list.“They had to write back to me then and told me I was seventh on the list for Shannon, third for a place in Newmarket-on-Fergus and sixth in Sixmilebridge.“After that, five bungalows were awarded to new tenants in Shannon so I went back to check. I should have been second on the list but they told me I’m still seventh. I can’t understand how that can be?” said Noel.“I just can’t seem to get anywhere with the council.”In a statement to the Limerick Post a spokesman for Clare County Council said; “Mr O’Callaghan’s application is open and he will be considered along with the other eligible approved housing applicants, under the terms of the Social Housing Allocation Scheme, should a suitable property in Shannon arise.“Other than the above, we are not in a position to comment on particulars regarding a social housing applicant for confidentiality reasons.” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick county house prices to rise 5% in 2021 Twitter
