Conceiving a house within a very old and small granite shack, with a slightly distorted plan and a prominent sloped roof, at the edge of a beautiful garden. Each level is a single space with a delicate spiral staircase connecting both floors. The living area occupies the ground floor, relating to the surrounding gardens; the bedroom fits under the sloped roof, facing the views.Save this picture!© Ricardo LoureiroSave this picture!ConceptSave this picture!© Ricardo LoureiroThe only added volume is an exuberant tower bluntly attached to the main volume. The new object is a superimposed element that fits a small bathroom downstairs and a strikingly tall shower above. The interior has its complexities and circumstances. A curved wall on the first floor is introduced to hold both pieces together, hide technical pipes and some storage, as well as to cause a subtle distortion of the bedroom. The inside spaces are defined with a simple palette of materials – white walls, striped wooden floors, fractions of white marble and mint-green carpentries. A nice house to live in. From the outside, the ambiguous pattern of white and pink triangles makes an obvious contrast between the two actors.Save this picture!© Ricardo LoureiroThe outward expression is dominated by this exuberant pattern and the new thin metal roof flying above the granite piece. The texture of the granite walls is kept and all the doors and window frames are refreshed with colour. The tall tower is standing in paradoxical independence, refusing to be serious, making a courageous formal statement. A monumental object for a non-monumental program.Save this picture!© Ricardo LoureiroProject gallerySee allShow lessHinterland From the Metropolis: Deciphering AMO’s “Countryside, The Future”ArticlesDruim House / RX ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Photographs Area:  55 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officefalaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmaranteResidential ArchitectureOn FacebookPortugalPublished on March 03, 2020Cite: “Small House with a Monumental Shower / fala” 03 Mar 2020.

Vigils and demonstrations protest execution of Michael Brown

first_imgA national call was issued to hold vigils and demonstrations to demand justice for Michael Brown, the 18-year-old unarmed African American who was shot multiple times and killed by police officer, Darren Wilson, on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo.  At least 90 U.S. cities held protests on Aug. 14 against this horrific execution — witnessed in broad daylight — in solidarity with Michael Brown’s family and the Ferguson community, which has been under police occupation since Aug. 10.  Workers World will be reporting and providing updates on these protests.  The People’s Power Assembly has issued an online petition demanding the following from Missouri and federal officials:  justice for Michael Brown; end the police occupation; arrest and charge police officer Darren Wilson with Brown’s murder; and unconditional amnesty for those arrested and detained since Aug. 10, 2014.  Go to to sign the petition and help get it circulated widely.  Between 5,000 to 10,000 people rallied in Union Square, New York City, with many then marching to Times Square.  The New York Police Department arrested at least a dozen people, including Black bystanders and Occupy Wall Street activists.  Other protests took place in Harlem and Brooklyn.A crowd of several hundred gathered at the Old Courthouse Square in Decatur, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta, last night, organized largely through Facebook by a young Asian woman and her friends. All the local TV stations were there and had reports on the 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. news. People brought signs reading “Black Lives Matter” and others had the names of Michael Brown and others killed by police.Dozens of people spoke, some recounting their own close calls with police. While it was a predominantly Black and young crowd, it was also multinational and multigenerational with families with young children and older folks, all united in their solidarity with the need to end police violence. Several of the speakers made reference to that demand. At dusk, candles were lit. At the end, a number of people marched through the streets of downtown Decatur.Dozens of community members from across the city of Milwaukee and beyond participated in an August 14 vigil in Dineen Park protesting the police execution of Michael Brown and other similar cases nationwide. Participants at the vigil also spoke out against numerous instances of police brutality and murder in the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Another protest is scheduled for Aug. 17 at 3 p.m. in Red Arrow Park.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Often Cursed USDA Reports Have Been Missed

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Often Cursed USDA Reports Have Been Missed SHARE Happy-to-get-USDA-reports-againThe government shutdown temporarily stopped USDA from issuing the large number of reports it generates on a monthly basis, and commodity markets felt the impact. Lafayette, Indiana broker and analyst Bill Gentry of Risk Management Commodities feels the impact grew as the shutdown lengthened, “because we really had no stakes in the ground to work or reference from,” he said. “So, one of the things that’s going to be very interesting is this Friday we’re going to get a Commitments of Traders report and we haven’t had one for three weeks. As we’ve seen over the last several weeks when they were still publishing those numbers, the trade had mis-estimated those by quite a bit. So, if that’s the case, after three weeks we could really be off and that could shock the market pretty hard. So, volatility is likely to increase through the course of this week in anticipation of next week.”Joe Vaclavik, Founder and CEO of Standard Grain in Chicago, says the markets really miss important data from a variety of reports, domestic and foreign.“USDA is generally considered to be the gold standard when it comes to reports, and you’ve got to remember how much we’re missing here. The obvious things we’re missing, weekly export sales reports, daily flash sale reports, your monthly WASDE reports. And we’re missing reports from overseas, the Foreign Ag Service offices.”Those reports are expected to now flood the market with the government shutdown over, including the February supply and demand report and the final 2018 crop production report coming as scheduled February 8th. Vaclavik says the overseas information is extensive and quite valuable to the markets.“There are a lot of things we’re not privy to during a shutdown and it would be really nice to see as CFTC report. It would be really nice to see some stuff from the FAS, especially out of Brazil and out of Argentina and get their take on it. Yes, it has affected the markets and I think if it’s resulted in anything at this point it may be a slowing in volatility just because we don’t have those reports.”Bill GentryGentry, in addition to looking forward to the new data is still concerned about what happens come the middle of February.“The real problem that I see is are they going to stay open after the 15th, because at this point in time I don’t see the two sides coming together to meet in the middle.Gentry remains somewhat optimistic this can all be resolved, but he doesn’t see it happening just yet.” By Andy Eubank – Jan 28, 2019 Often Cursed USDA Reports Have Been Missed Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous article#ffaweek is Coming February 16-23 Across the CountryNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 29, 2019 Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Man charged with assaulting, choking sister

first_img Facebook Man charged with assaulting, choking sister Pinterest WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Twitter A 31-year-old man was arrested Sunday after he reportedly choked and slammed his sister to the ground. Eric Aguirre was charged with assault to family member with impeding breathing and circulation (family violence), a third-degree felony. The assault reportedly happened at 4:03 p.m. Sunday in the 1600 block of Hemphill Avenue, an Odessa Police Department affidavit stated. Officers were dispatched to the residence and before OPD got out of their patrol units, a woman identified as Aguirre’s sister, approached the officers with several children, the affidavit detailed. She was reportedly bleeding from her mouth, near her right ear, right side of face and her right eye was swollen and bruised, the affidavit detailed. The woman told officers she had gotten into an altercation with her brother, the affidavit stated. She reportedly stated her brother grabbed her by the neck, slammed her down and caused her to stop breathing. The woman had a hoarse voice when speaking to officers. Officers knocked on the front door of the residence and heard a bang from the back of the house. Aguirre had fled out the back window and was headed west, the affidavit stated. Officers found Aguirre hiding behind dumpsters near Stripes, located at 3210 W. 16th St. Aguirre’s initial statement was that his sister had gotten into his face and scratched him, the affidavit detailed. He stated he pulled his sister’s hair and “pinned her to the ground.” Aguirre reportedly didn’t specify anything further. Aguirre had scratch marks from his upper neck area down to his torso, which is reportedly consistent with a person defending themselves from an assault, the affidavit stated. He also had a cut on the side of his right hand, but didn’t state how he got it. Officers spoke with several children at the scene, all of them stated they saw Aguirre and his sister pushing each other, fighting each other and both being hurt, the affidavit detailed. This was the second time in about two months that Aguirre was arrested after he reportedly assaulted a family member, jail records show. He was also charged Feb. 4 with assault family violence restricting airway, a third-degree felony. Aguirre was arrested, charged and transported to the Ector County Law Enforcement Center. He has one bond totaling $7,500 and was still in custody as of Tuesday afternoon, jail records show.

On Wednesday, the FOMC announcement will determine whether interest rates will remain unchanged or fall.There is a lot of anticipation around this meeting with economists predicting a fall in interest rates by September. In fact, Fed Chair Jerome Powell signaled that rate cuts would be in the cards in the coming months during his semi-annual testimony to Congress.”In our June meeting statement, we indicated that, in light of increased uncertainties about the economic outlook and muted inflation pressures, we would closely monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlook and would act as appropriate to sustain the expansion,” Powell told the House Financial Services Committee. “Many FOMC participants saw that the case for a somewhat more accommodative monetary policy had strengthened.”He had also pointed to softening investments in housing needed to be addressed. “In addition, housing investment and manufacturing output declined in the first quarter and appear to have decreased again in the second quarter,” Powell said.Some other economic issues that needed to be addressed, according to Powell, included stagnation of middle and lower incomes, low levels of upward mobility for low-income households, and the long-term effects of rising federal debt.However, according to two Federal Reserve Chiefs, interest rates are unlikely to be cut in July. Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta President Raphael Bostic told Bloomberg that he is “not seeing the storm clouds generating a storm yet,” while Thomas Barkin from the Richmond Fed said that with unemployment low and consumer spending, it’s “hard to make a case for stepping on the gas.’’Here’s what else is happening in the week ahead:S&P CoreLogic Case Shiller HPI, Tuesday, 9 a.m. ESTNAR Pending Home Sales Index, Tuesday, 10 a.m. ESTMBA Mortgage Apps – Wednesday, 7 a.m. ESTFreddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Index, Thursday, 10 a.m. ESTCensus Bureau Construction Spending Report, Thursday, 10 a.m. ESTBureau of Labor Employment Data, Friday, 8:30 a.m. EST About Author: Radhika Ojha July 26, 2019 1,126 Views Home / Daily Dose / The Week Ahead: Will the Fed Reduce Rates?

Investigators release disciplinary records of Rayshard Brooks arresting officers, 911 call

first_imgiStock/ChiccoDodiFC(ATLANTA) — BY: IVAN PEREIRAThe Atlanta Police Department released new information regarding the two officers involved in the arrest that led to Rayshard Brooks’ death last week, along with the 911 call that led them to the Wendy’s parking lot.Officer Garret Rolfe, who fatally shot Brooks, 27, had prior disciplinary investigations some of which stemmed from civilian complaints and use of force.Rolfe has been terminated from the police force. Devin Brosnan, who was the first officer on scene, was placed on administrative duty while the Georgia Bureau of Investigation conducts its probe into the June 12 shooting.Rolfe, who was a six year veteran of the force, had 11 incidents that were reviewed before last week, three of which resulted in disciplinary action, the records show.The records released by police give the form of the complaint and whether there was any discipline or action taken against the officer, but do not give specific details of each case.In his time with the Atlanta Police Department, records show Rolfe received an “oral admonishment” for a vehicle accident in October 2014, a use of force violation involving the use of a firearm in September 2016 that resulted in a written reprimand and a written reprimand for a vehicle accident in August 2018.According to the police records, there was also an incident in August 2015 where Rolfe discharged his weapon, but no action was taken against him.Brosnan, who has been on the force for a year, did not have any disciplinary review on his record before the shooting, according to the records released by the police.The police were called in after a 911 call from an employee at an Atlanta Wendy’s who told the operator a man, who later turned out to be Brooks, was asleep at the wheel and parked in the drive-thru, according to the 911 audio released by the police.“I tried to wake him up, but he’s parked dead in the middle of the drive-thru. So I don’t know what is wrong with him,” the caller said.The caller told the operator that other cars had to drive around Brooks’ car to get out of the Wendy’s parking lot.“He woke up, looked at me and I was like, ‘You gotta move out the drive-thru because people can’t.’ They’re going around him just right there,” the caller said.Brosnan was the first officer who arrived at the scene and the incident was recorded on his body camera and police vehicle dashboard camera.In police body camera footage that has been released, Brooks is seen calmly speaking with Brosnan after the officer woke him up and questioned him.“I can just go home. My daughters are there right now. My daughter’s birthday was yesterday,” Brooks told Brosnan in the video.A short time later, Rolfe arrived on scene after Brosnan suspected Brooks may have been under the influence of alcohol.The officers administered a Breathalyzer to Brooks, according to the body camera footage, and it registered a blood-alcohol level of .108%, which is above the legal limit of .08%.As officers attempted to put Brooks in handcuffs, a struggle ensued and he got a hold of one of the officers’ stun guns, according to the video and investigators. A surveillance video from the scene showed Brooks running away with the stun gun in his hand. Brooks turned and allegedly shot the stun gun at Rolfe, who drew his service weapon from his holster and opened fire, according to the video.Brooks was taken to a local hospital, where he died after emergency surgery, according to investigators.Neither officer has been criminally charged in connection with the incident. The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office is currently investigating the case.Brooks’ shooting came weeks after George Floyd was killed during an arrest in Minneapolis and subsequent protests around the world calling for police reform.Since the incident, Atlanta police chief Erika Shields resigned from her position and multiple protests have taken place in the city.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
