When the clients for the Bouldin House, a young couple in the music industry, approached Alter Studio they didn’t have an image in mind, or a site, but knew that they wanted a very special home that would embrace the many different things that they liked. The design presents an aesthetic that engages serendipity in many guises, where board-formed concrete, rough recycled wood flooring, and vertical cedar siding is posed against abstract detailing allowing sunlight and shadow from every direction.

PivotThe house takes advantage of Austin’s 25’ front yard setback requirement by capturing a private walled courtyard on the busy street to the south, and instead turns to face the side street to the east. Situated between this courtyard and a protected live oak tree, the Bouldin House is a compact, 2-story building that expands both north and south into the lot. Carefully orchestrated windows, skylights and a glass floor further open the house to the sky and sun, and provide a continued sense of openness to this 2300 sq ft home. Rooms are designed to provide both intimacy and expansiveness. A cozy 9’ x 9’ media room sits at the center of the house downstairs, while the upstairs office/studio stretches the full 43’ length of the house and is open on both ends to continue the sense of breadth and engage views of downtown. Butt-glazed corners and windows that rise beyond interior ceilings add a sense of surprise and ambiguity to the whole.Save this picture!©  Paul Bardagjy PhotographyOriented for optimal cross ventilation, the Bouldin House also is outfitted for a rainwater collection system, solar photovoltaic array, solar pool heating tubes, reflective TPO roofing, cellular foam insulation, tankless water heaters, etc. Their desire for a sustainable lifestyle is also reflecting in their decision to live centrally and work from home, all within a modest sized footprint.Save this picture!©  Paul Bardagjy PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessButler House / Andrew Maynard ArchitectsArticlesFreshLatino at Storefront for Art and ArchitectureArticles Share Save this picture!©  Paul Bardagjy Photography+ 9 Share Photographs 2009 Bouldin Residence / Alter Studio ArchDailylast_img read more

‘Charity’ publishing companies closed in the public interest

The companies misled those whom them sold advertising to in terms of the amount being donated to charity.Lancashire-based Hamilton Forbes Limited and Price Chamberlain Limited were set up to continue the business of charity publisher Barrington House Publishing Corporation Limited, which itself was wound up in October 2005.Investigators found that both Hamilton Forbes and Price Chamberlain sold advertising space in wall-planners to small businesses who were contacted by cold-calling, by many of the same staff, from the same premises, using the same methods and for the same charities asBarrington House. Advertisement Initially the companies failed to comply with Section 60 of the Charities Act 1992 and inform advertisers of the proportion of their fees which would be given to charity. Even though they latterly sent out statements, these were inaccurate, according to investigators.Advertisers were told that 15p in every pound would be given by Hamilton Forbes Limited to The Children’s Research Fund and 10p in every pound to the International League for Protection of Horses. In fact, less than 5p in every pound went to these charities.Advertisers with Price Chamberlain Limited were told 25p in every pound would go to the charity Kids in Need and Distress (KIND) but in reality it was 8p.The Insolvency Service found that advertisers were also misled as to the planned distribution of the wall-planners with telesales staff stating figures ranging from 100’s to 100,000 or “all hospitals”. In reality investigators found that the maximum distribution for any one wall planner was just 87 with the average closer to 67.The accounting records of both companies were “at best inaccurate and at worst misleading”, according to the Insolvency Service. Both companies appeared to be insolvent owing VAT and PAYE of over £250,000.The Official Receiver was appointed as provisional liquidator of each company on 29 January 2007 and the winding up orders were made on 13 March 2007.

Bolton’s false claim of ‘new’ U.S. policy for Africa

first_imgThis article was first published in Avante, the weekly newspaper of the Portuguese Communist Party, on Dec. 27. Its author was a former member of the Secretariat of the PAIGC, the party leading the struggle for the liberation of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde. Translation by WW Managing Editor John Catalinotto.The United States has announced a “new” policy for Africa. It was up to National Security Adviser John Bolton — known for his reactionary and aggressive positions — to reveal the basics of Washington’s strategy for the African continent. This policy was approved by President Donald Trump on Dec. 12.U.S. military bases and other operations facilities from 2002-2015Speaking at the right-wing Heritage Foundation on Dec. 13, Bolton defined three priorities.  The first was to strengthen trade ties with African countries through agreements that benefit both parties.  He said, “We ask only for reciprocity, never for subservience.” The second was to contain the “proliferation of radical Islamic terrorism” — namely, “ISIS, Al-Qaida and other terrorists,” which “targeted United States citizens and interests.”  The third priority was to ensure that U.S. “aid” is efficient and effective, in line with U.S. interests — while “unproductive aid” should be ended, including United Nations peace missions. He stated, “Countries that repeatedly vote against the United States and international forums that would take action against U.S. interests should not receive generous American foreign aid.”Bolton stressed that the main aim of U.S. strategy is to oppose and, if possible, to prevent China’s and Russia’s good and cooperative relations with African countries. He said that these “great power [U.S.] competitors are rapidly extending their financial and political influence across Africa” and “are deliberately and aggressively targeting their investments in the region to gain a competitive advantage over the United States.” (CSPAN, Dec. 13)In essence, there is no change of strategy. But Bolton’s speech raises concerns about his threat to reconfigure or end funding for U.N. missions in Africa.  These missions contribute to the search for peaceful resolutions of conflicts and wars in Sudan, South Sudan, Mali, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Western Sahara and Somalia.In fact, many of these conflicts and wars have been caused by interference from Washington and its allies. Under the pretext of the fight against terrorism, the Pentagon maintains several military bases in Africa, from Djibouti to Niger, under the United States Africa Command (Africom).  Africom has about 7,200 staff members in “advisory missions” in many African countries.Bolton has promised that Washington will reduce the number of troops stationed in Africa by 10 percent and has urged the countries on the continent to assume their own defense. The White House adviser also raised the possible transfer to African soil of Africom, which has had its headquarters in Germany since its inception in 2007.Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the African Union Commission, responded to the announcement of the U.S.’s “new African policy” while speaking at the Africa-Europe Forum in Vienna on Dec. 18. He reminded the group that “investors have their interests, we have ours, we know better than anyone else with whom we should trade and cooperate.”Whether under old or new guises, within the framework of its strategy of world domination, U.S. policy toward Africa does not change.  It will continue to be one of meddling, military intervention and exploitation of the continent’s wealth. However, this policy faces increasing resistance and opposition from the African peoples, who continue to fight for their complete emancipation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Black Lives Matter – from Nigeria to the U.S.

first_imgPeople protest against abuses by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Lagos, Nigeria, Oct. 12.As a Nigerian-American, I was very disappointed in myself for my lack of knowledge about #EndSARS protests in Nigeria that have captivated the world recently. (In Nigeria, SARS stands for the so-called “Special Anti-Robbery Squad” police force unit.)The dissonance between my words and my action was painfully obvious. I’ve been saying that all Black lives should matter, no matter what part of the world they inhabit, and I was ignoring an important movement from my mother country. Rectifying that, I spent the past week reading up on #EndSARS protests. As I read, I noticed similarities between violence carried out by SARS in Nigeria and violence doled out by the “men in blue” in the U.S. Both forces rely on profiling in order to identify targets for their attacks. The SARS forces carouse the streets looking for “suspects” based on certain lifestyle traits, such as the car they are driving or the jewelry on their wrists. SARS used this disturbing method on Oct. 3 to rob a yet-to-be-identified young adult of his life in Ughelli, a town in southeastern Nigeria. He was killed for the dangerous crime of driving a Lexus. Two days later, SARS forces shot and killed Daniel Chibuke, a 20-year-old up-and-coming rapper, for daring to sit near a hotel with a friend.  I was reminded of the laws and methods U.S. police use to target Black people, such as “stop and frisk.” Black men and masculine of center people are targeted by police for the most frivolous minutiae, such as wearing a hoodie or driving a car with the radio too loud. Basic things that people of other ethnicities can do without a second thought can endanger the lives of Black masculine people.  In both countries, Black masculine people are harassed, beaten and killed for not buying into classist respectability politics and daring to live as their true selves. The young men’s deaths remind me of a time when I was profiled and patted down by a police officer for having the audacity to go to a grocery store wearing a hoodie on a chilly night. The fear I felt at that moment must have been exactly what those two men – and others – were experiencing as they met their tragic end. In Nigeria the deaths of the two young men became a call to action for that country’s marginalized, just like Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012 provided the impetus for the Black Lives Matter movement in the U.S.Nigerian LGBTQ+ resistance buildsLearning about the origin of the #EndSARS movement piqued my interest. To find out more about this grassroots organizing, I googled SARS and discovered this hashtag: #QueerNigerianLivesMatter. Seeing those four words pleasantly surprised me as it’s not often that LGBTQ+ people in Nigeria are granted such visibility. There, as in the States, queer and trans people live under the specter of police violence. Earlier this year, police raided a Lagos Hotel and arrested 57 men on the mere suspicion of being gay. Similar police raids are conducted all over Nigeria on gay men and lesbian women. Since President Muhammadu Buhari signed the 2014 Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act into law, police violence against queer and trans people has skyrocketed. It is noteworthy that many current oppressive anti-queer laws stem from the colonial era when the British instituted puritanical,Western-style sexual mores into law against Nigeria’s many ethnic groups.For Nigerian LGBTQ+ people, the #EndSARS movement could potentially be their Stonewall movement. That uprising in the U.S. in late June 1969 was the culmination of frustration and anger that the most marginalized LGBTQ+ people felt at being on the receiving end of police brutality. The Stonewall Rebellion sent shockwaves throughout the world and compelled generations to fight for queer liberation. As the current rebellion against police violence is waged in Nigeria, queer and trans activists leading the charge could serve as inspiration to the BLM activists in the U.S., like the Stonewall activists have inspired millions. In Nigeria, people such as non-binary activist Matthew Blaise and queer liberation organizer Ani Kayode Somtochukwu could be the Marsha P. Johnson and the Storme DeLarverie of the modern day. Queer and trans Nigerians’ fight to have the #EndSARS movement recognize their trials and tribulations mirrors the fight for Black LGBTQ+ people to gain visibility within the mainstream Black Lives Matter movement in the States. In the U.S., local grassroots organizations have worked hard to recognize Black queer and trans victims of police brutality, but Tony McDade and Layleen Polanco haven’t been able to garner as much notice as George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and even Breonna Taylor. McDade, a Black trans man, was gunned down by Tallahassee, Fla.,  police, and Polanco, an Afro-Latinx trans woman, died because of medical negligence by Rikers Island prison staff in New York City. They have been rendered invisible relative to the cisgendered, heterosexual Black victims of police brutality. The spirited fight of queer #EndSARS protesters in Nigeria could provide the impetus for Black LGBTQ+ activists in the U.S. to increase their fight for representation within the broader Black Lives Matter movement.Women’s pivotal role in #EndSARS As someone with lifelong sympathies with feminism, I feel proud of the role women have played in the #EndSARS movement. While a large focus on police brutality centers on cishet men, women are also victims of sexual violence at the hands of SARS and the Nigerian police in general. One grassroots organization in particular, the Feminist Coalition, is playing a pivotal role in the ongoing protests, providing food, shelter and medical treatment to protesters fighting for an end to police brutality. Black Lives Matter was founded in the U.S. in 2012 by three Black women, at least one of whom identifies as gender-nonconforming. Black women and femmes have been a major presence at protests against police brutality,It warms my heart to witness the long tradition of Black women and femmes continuing and driving political movements forward. From Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth during the 19th-century abolition movement, to today’s protests spearheaded by Damilola Odufuwa, Odunayo Eweniyi, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and so many more, Black women have contributed immensely to the fight for Black liberation.The week I spent educating myself about #EndSARS has taught me that the global fight for Black lives is alive and well. In an era of increasing fascism, Black people – no matter which part of the world they inhabit – need to band together to rebel against oppression – no matter how it manifests itself.The simultaneous protests in Nigeria and the United States are a positive development in working toward a world where all Black people are truly free.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Why Independent Book Stores Rock

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News More Cool Stuff First Heatwave Expected Next Week Cover Story Why Independent Book Stores Rock Despite the promised convenience of online stores and crazy selection of humongous industrial grade book stores, independent book stores still have redeemable qualities that’s worth your business By FRANZ A.D. MORALES Published on Thursday, August 15, 2013 | 2:28 pm Subscribe Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Make a comment Hemingway once quipped, “There is no friend as loyal as a book.” A good book is there when you need it, and it can provide advice when troubled that’s as sound as anything you might hear from a friend. It can make you laugh when you’re down, and make you cry when you need a good emotional lift.However, the journey you take with a book does not start when you open its pages. It starts when you look for it.Online book stores promise convenience, but is it worth the lack of human contact? Is choosing a book through an electronic device better than physically browsing in a book store? Of course not. You can try to choose books in a multi-level book complex, where the ambience is as cold as a mall, or you can head on to your nearest independent book store where everyone knows your name and the atmosphere is as cozy as a cottage in a dark forest.Here are the reasons why the independent book store is much more worth your time and business than any online or massive book complex.Staying connectedOne reason to visit an independent book store is the added value of staying connected, and not in a digital sense. Shopping for a book online or in a big commercial book store deprives you of the opportunity to connect with fellow book lovers. Whether they are book buyers themselves or the book sellers, independent book stores give you the chance to talk, discuss, and discover literature.Discover and exploreYou can discover and explore in any online store or book store, but to do the same in an independent book store is much more satisfying. When you pull a book from a shelf, leaf through it, and ask questions with a fellow book lover, that experience is rare in a commercial book store, and non-existent in online stores.A book lovers havenIn an online store, to read a book before buying is near impossible. Sure there are sample pages, but you can’t leaf through other pages to check if the whole book offers the same gripping readability, or if the sample pages are the best the book has to offer. In big book stores, most are encased in plastic and to rip it off can earn you disgruntled looks from the staff, or even outright ejection from the premises.In an independent book store? You can read and browse at your leisure. Sometimes while sipping coffee. It’s a place to relax, an oasis from reality, a haven for bibliophiles.Personal servicePerhaps the one thing independent book stores have that online stores and commercial book stores don’t is personal service. With most independent book stores, the moment you walk in, you can strike up a conversation with the owner, with an employee, or with a fellow book lover, and you won’t feel out of place.These helpful individuals can help you find the perfect book for you after just a few minutes of chatting it up. In commercial book stores, you’d have to wait for an employee to go through its catalog of titles, and the most info you can get from them about any book is the same info written on the back cover. With online stores? Forget about it.Online stores and commercial book stores may be fine for those times when you are in a hurry, but if you want to savor the whole journey, from searching for a book, leafing through it, purchasing it, reading it, then discussing it with other book lovers, independent book stores can’t be beat.The service, the people, the ambience, and the general quaintness of it all, are those that no large commercial establishment can ever duplicate.If you want to experience “The Journey,” visit The Book Rack at 204 S. 1st Ave., Arcadia.
