LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. Nestled into a Mercer Island hillside, across Lake Washington from Seattle, this intimate two-story residence emphasizes craft, materiality, and connection to the outdoors. The clients’ desire for privacy from neighbours is achieved through the home’s protective, L-shaped design. A cantilevered wing—containing the master bedroom—aligns with the adjoining property and screens the rest of the house from view to create a private refuge within the L. The cantilevered element captures focused views of Lake Washington. Dark-stained cedar siding wraps the exterior of the private areas of the 4,400-square-foot house, including the master suite. Public spaces are clad with copper panels, which have developed a rich patina. Inside, an open primary living space is wrapped by a band of clerestory windows that bathe the interiors in a balanced light.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderThe design also carves cosier, more intimate areas within the larger space by integrating such features as lowered ceilings and a blackened, steel-faced fireplace that forms an inglenook in the corner of the living room. Wood casework and ceiling plane surface ensure the overall aesthetic is warm and inviting. The master suite—which comprises the bedroom, an adjoining office rendered in walnut, and a spa-like bathroom encased in limestone and eucalyptus cabinetry—provides a soft retreat. Private spaces provide a contrast to the blackened concrete floors and granite of the public spaces. “It’s about thinking where you are during the course of the day and how we can make you feel more calm or comfortable,” notes the architect.Save this picture!Floor PlanCollaborations with local craftspeople can be found throughout the home—from entry and interior doors to the blackened steel staircase, a glass and metal chandelier, interior copper panels, and a dining table made of wood, steel and concrete. The entry door features a set of antique Chinese wood panels inset into the blackened-steel framing. Custom-designed furnishings include a wood-and-steel dining table and a glass-topped coffee table in the living area. The interiors and lawn are accented with the clients’ extensive art collection, a mix of paintings and sculptures by Pacific Northwest artists.Save this picture!© Benjamin BenschneiderProject gallerySee allShow lessWinners of Landmark for Nuclear Waste Isolation AnnouncedArchitecture NewsThe New York Times Takes Us to the New 7 Wonders of the World with 360 VideosArticles Share Brook Bay Residence / SKL Architects CopyHouses•Mercer Island, United Stateslast_img read more

U.S. whips up crisis over Crimea

first_imgMarch 10 — In recent days the U.S. imperialists and their junior EU partners have escalated the confrontation against Russia and the Ukrainian people diplomatically, militarily and economically.Washington is using the upcoming referendum in Crimea and the strengthening of Russian military positions on the peninsula as a pretext to inflame the situation in Ukraine and stoke the fires of confrontation.Another sign of the intransigence of U.S. imperialism is that, on the diplomatic front, an expected visit by Secretary of State John Kerry to Moscow to discuss the crisis was postponed by Washington.  And in a new provocation, President Obama has invited the illegally installed, right-wing puppet prime minister of Ukraine, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, to the White House. In addition, Washington has arranged for Yatsenyuk to go to the United Nations.The U.S. diplomatic and political goal is to give official status to the pro-Western imperialist regime in Kiev. This regime was installed when the legally elected government of President Viktor Yanukovich was overthrown by U.S.-supported fascist shock troops, who drove him from office by means of armed street violence and terror.Pentagon raising military pressureOn the military front, the Pentagon is dispatching 12 F-16 fighter planes and 300 U.S. troops to Poland. All it took was one phone call from U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel to Polish Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak to get Poland to “request” the aid.Likewise, the U.S. is sending 4 F-15 fighter planes to Lithuania. In addition, NATO — primarily the U.S. — is dispatching AWACS planes to the region. AWACS planes are advanced airborne command and control centers, in addition to being spy planes. They will patrol the Ukrainian border and the eastern borders of Russia.The USS Truxton, one of the largest destroyers ever built for the U.S. Navy, sailed through the Bosporus Straits into the Black Sea for joint exercises with the Bulgarian and Romanian navies.Crimea and separationPresident Barack Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and their echoes in the European Union have denounced the Crimean referendum and said in advance that “the international community,” i.e., the community of imperialist states, will not recognize the results.But the people of Crimea have the right to separate in order to prevent coming under the rule of a pro-Western capitalist regime in Kiev. One of the first acts of the regime was to revoke a law that had established Russian as an official language equal in status with Ukrainian. The majority of the people in Crimea speak Russian.There is fear and anger in Crimea that the ministries and the parliament in Kiev are filled with fascists and ultra-right-wing nationalist forces. Members of the anti-Semitic, pro-fascist Svoboda Party and the outright fascist Right Front have assumed high levels of authority. It is surely not forgotten that thousands of Crimeans were killed by the Nazis during their occupation of the area in World War II.In addition, the government in Kiev is committed to bringing in the International Monetary Fund with its program of economic austerity. And another threat is that Western European and U.S. capital will flood into Ukraine as powerful exploiters.Of course, West Ukrainian and Russian oligarchs are also exploiters. And trading one exploiter for another is not a program for the working class. Ethnic divisions can only damage the struggle of the Ukrainian masses.  The best road to pushing back Kiev, Washington and the EU in their schemes to take over Ukraine is internationalist solidarity among all the peoples of Crimea and Ukraine as a whole in a common class struggle against Western imperialism, all oligarchs and capitalism itself.Left internationalists in UkraineThis sentiment was expressed in a recent communiqué by the Borotba (Struggle) union. The group describes itself as representing four or five anti-capitalist and anti-racist groups, including former members of the youth organization of the Communist Party of Ukraine. Some of the members of the CPU split when the party backed the corrupt, bourgeois candidate Yanukovich.The group is engaged in the struggle against Ukrainian fascists and has been under violent attack by the right wing. Their communiqué #4 read in part:“… [I]n the context of mass mobilization the activists of Borotba union and Center of Anti-fascist Resistance put forward the following slogans:“Not to defend the surrendered power [Yanukovich] but rather to build up people’s self-organization.“Not to ignite ethnic and language conflicts but rather to defend values of international and peoples’ friendship.“The only solution to the crisis created by the oligarchs, officials and politicians is creating a socialist society.” (borotba.org)Imperialism labels Russia’s defensive posture ‘aggression’Washington has engineered a fascist insurrection and illegally seized control of the government of this highly strategic country. Ukraine has a population of 45 million, is rich in resources and industry, and has 1,500 miles of border with Russia. After incorporating 12 other countries, all former Soviet socialist allies and republics, into NATO, the U.S. and the EU are now making threats because of Russian measures to counter this clear act of aggression.Washington is demanding nothing less than capitulation from Moscow. Before Yatsenyuk’s visit to the White House was arranged, Secretary of State John Kerry spent two days trying to press Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov into meeting with the puppet foreign minister, but Lavrov refused.Washington then got British Prime Minister David Cameron to put pressure on Moscow, followed by phone calls from German President Angela Merkel. Obama himself spent hours on several phone calls with President Vladimir Putin.All this pressure was to get the Russian government to reconcile itself to the seizure of governmental power in Kiev by the U.S. and the EU. Most important, all the phone calls and all the threats were designed to get the Russian government to accept a pro-NATO, pro-Western imperialist government on its borders.Vulnerability of capitalist RussiaWashington is also threatening economic sanctions. Therein lies Russia’s greatest vulnerability, precisely because it is ruled by capitalist oligarchs, bankers and industrialists who are integrated into the world capitalist economy. The Russian ruling class has many tens of billions of dollars (in rubles) abroad. Either directly or through state companies the capitalists have investments from Ukraine to central Asia, the U.S. and Europe.In sharp contrast, the Soviet Union was a socialist country with a planned economy and strong economic relations with its socialist allies in Eastern and Central Europe. It was not integrated into the world capitalist economy. On the contrary, the USSR was the victim of deliberate economic and technological isolation imposed by world imperialism.During great crises, such as the invasion to crush the Hungarian counterrevolution in 1956, the intervention to stop a Western capitalist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1968, or the Berlin crisis of 1948-49, the imperialists had no significant economic leverage over the USSR.In the present crisis, capitalist Russia is far more vulnerable. It is said that Putin anticipated such a development and has tried to get Russian financiers and investors to bring much of their money back to Russia from abroad. But that has limits. After two decades of integration into the world capitalist system, the U.S. and Europe have leverage.The only saving grace is that this integration cuts both ways. The imperialists also have a lot to lose in an economic war.Washington, the Pentagon and Wall Street have the immediate goal of enslaving the Ukrainian people. But their ultimate goal is to encircle Russia in the geopolitical struggle to dominate the territory of the former Soviet Union in its entirety.The workers and the oppressed of the world will suffer if Washington is able to carry out its aims in the Ukraine and in Russia. The worst outcome in the present situation would be a victory for the U.S. Every effort must be made to stop this dangerous development.Fred Goldstein is the author of “Low-Wage Capitalism” and “Capitalism at a Dead End,” which has been translated into Spanish as “El capitalismo en un callejón sin salida.” Both are available on Amazon.

Options abound in TCU quarterback competition

Collier TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee + posts printDuring the search to find Kenny Hill’s replacement as the next Horned Frog quarterback, TCU head coach Gary Patterson has found the position group to be as deep as its ever been.“Best first two days of spring we’ve had in two years,” Patterson said of his quarterbacks. “All three probably spinning it better the first two days of the spring than we have in two years.”Shawn Robinson, who played in six of TCU’s thirteen games as a true freshman, including a win in his only start in Lubbock against Texas Tech, is the likely starter Patterson said, but Justin Rogers and Penn transfer Michael Collins have also impressed.“Shawn Robinson is probably the leading candidate because he’s started a game and won it,” Patterson said. “He’s been here and learned how to manage and prepare for a ball game during the week. The best part about that was I don’t think he understood what to do. You go into Lubbock to play a ball game as the starting quarterback, that’s hard to do. He threw the ball well, missed a couple routes, but found a way to win the ball game.” The sophomore, a state champion at DeSoto High School, gained what Patterson said is something you can’t teach when he accounted for 169 total yards, 84 of which came on the ground against the Red Raiders, experience. “I think what he learned out of it was that the preparation is a lot of work and you need to get down,” Patterson said. “You can’t run over everybody even if you’re 220. Everybody has big guys so you have to be able to get down.”While Collins doesn’t have the name-recognition of Robinson or Rogers, the highest-rated recruit during Patterson’s time in Fort Worth, he could earn the back-up job and stay in the hunt for the top spot until the very end with Rogers’ on the mend, recovering from a knee injury he suffered in high school.TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie coaches up quarterback Justin Rogers (13). Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoAfter the conclusion of spring practice number five Thursday and the first full pads practice of the semester, the Ivy League transfer still has a ways to go.“I only judge quarterbacks in scrimmages and games, so there are days where you’re killing it and some days you’re not,” Patterson said. “Today we worked first down, third down, zone and man blitz, so for a new guy it’s a lot of work. That’s why we push the issue all the time.”However, whether it’s Robinson, the most likely scenario, Collins, or Rogers, it’ll be a work in progress with the offensive line in front of them losing four of its five starters from a season ago.“Again, Robinson’s deep in alligators because the thing about running back and quarterback here is your confidence level goes with the experience of your offensive line, and right they’re a work in progress,” Patterson said. “We’re on day five or six, we just need to keep getting better. There are three rotating in at left tackle.”However, whoever becomes the TCU signal-caller will be lavished with a talented wide receiver group Patterson said with Jaelan Austin and Jalen Reagor at X and Z positions on the outside, Jarrison Stewart inside at the Y position, and KaVontae Turpin and true freshman Taye Barber at H inside the slot. “We look more explosive at the wide receiver position and at quarterback especially throwing it deep than we have in a couple years.”TCU wide receiver KaVontae Turpin (25) and running back Sewo Olonilua (33) talk in between drills. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoSpecifically, Barber has drawn a rave reviews early this spring.“Our off-season hasn’t bothered him at all, the learning process hasn’t bothered him at all, going to school hasn’t bothered him at all,” Patterson said. “He’s one of those guys where you just smile when you talk to him because he’s been a perfect child. What else can you ask for? If everyone did that it would be a lot easier on us.”Patterson said former TCU receiver and 2017 Alamo Bowl hero Desmond White was fast, but Barber is even faster.Barber, a graduate of Cypress Springs in Houston, runs a 4.53 40-yard dash while White ran a 4.68 40-yard dash coming out of DeSoto in 2014. Barber, at 5-foot-10, 183 pounds, is four inches taller and 40 pounds stronger than White when he as a true freshman.

Residential Real Estate on “Shaky Ground”

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Residential Real Estate on “Shaky Ground” In an interview with Real Vision, real estate analyst Keith Jurow stated that recent housing market recovery has been nothing more than an illusion. According to Jurow, the “illusion” stems from lenders and mortgage services not putting foreclosed properties on the market.“This had nothing to do with any kind of economic recovery,” Jurow said. “The house market turnaround was because of the actions taken by the lenders and servicers.”Jurow notes that there are  four factors putting the U.S. housing market at risk: subprime mortgages, defaulting on modified mortgages, declining home sales in the hottest market. There are currently $800 billion of subprime mortgages still outstanding, many of which have not been paid at all in the last five years.Additionally, millions of owners of modified mortgages started redefaulting almost immediately after they were modified. “Some of them have redefaulted two or three times,” Jurow said. “A second redefault is greater. So this problem is getting worse as we move forward.”“There are very dangerous circumstances today that you have to think about, in terms of making decisions concerning houses,” Jurow concluded. “There is no way I would consider buying a house either to live in or as an investment with all of these circumstances and risks. And if I were a homeowner, I would seriously consider selling before things get much worse.” Subscribe Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

The Railways stated that out of this, about 70 km route length of track is affected by large jhuggie jhopri clusters existing in close vicinity of the tracks. These clusters sum up to a total of about 48000 nos of Jhuggies in the region adjacent to Railway tracks, the Court was told.The Railways further stated that following the directions passed by the National Green Tribunal, Principal Bench, in October 2018, a Special Task Force for removal of encroachments from the Railway Property has already been constituted.The Railways filed the affidavit in response to the report submitted by the Environment Pollution (Protection and Control) Authority stating that the Railways was not in compliance with the Municipal Solid Waste Management Rules 2016.The Court was further told by the Railways that there was “political intervention” which comes in the way of the removal of encroachments.Following the SC order, Ajay Maken – who had earlier filed a PIL in the Delhi HC seeking rehabilitation of slum dwellers – moved the application seeking the recall of the directions to evict the slum dwellers.The 2-time MP has gone on to point out that the Order was passed in a matter (MC Mehta) where the affected slum dwellers were neither party to the case, nor were they represented in any capacity. Therefore, he adds, the Apex Court passed Orders without having considered their grievances or submissions at all. Emphasizing that close to 2.4 lakh people will be rendered homeless when this Order is given effect, by the Railway Ministry’s own admission, the petitioner pleads that doing so without hearing them would be “one of the gravest tragedy and non-observance of principles of Natural Justice.” Asserting that the Top Court heard the Government, which wanted slums to be demolished, and “completely ignored the affected/ vulnerable population” by denying them an opportunity to be heard, the petition urges that there “cannot be a departure from the rule of Audi Altrem Partem, especially when the Jhuggi dwellers have been living in the shanties for 30-40 years.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
