first_imgSave this picture!© AA StudioWritten by Rory Stott Share CopyAA Studio have revealed their plans for the development of Brooklyn’s iconic New York Dock Company building, transforming the 230,000 square foot structure into a mixed-use complex of six commercial spaces on the ground floor, 70 residential loft apartments, and a rooftop deck and gardens above.The design aims to be as faithful to the original structure as possible, retaining the existing poured concrete columns and walls and exposing the high concrete ceilings. As one of the earliest structures to use the technology, the retention and celebration of these features is a key aspect of the building’s conservation.Read on after the break for more on the design+ 7Save this picture!© AA Studio”We recognized in Red Hook the creative spirit that exists, positioning Brooklyn as the new frontier for visionary design,” said Aldo Andreoli, Principal of AA Studio. “We wanted, first of all, to keep as much as possible; the purity of the existing concrete structure, incorporating at the same time the best new technologies available for energy efficiency and design quality.”Save this picture!© AA StudioThe loft-style apartment spaces feature a spacious, minimal design, including full-height doors which blend with the wall when closed and large 3-pane windows which allow for uninterrupted views of both Brooklyn and Manhattan. These views were enabled by introducing five vertical circulation cores, eliminating the need for corridors and allowing each apartment to span the width of the building.Save this picture!© AA StudioAt roof level, the building features gardens accessible to the residents of the apartments. The roof also features the building’s former water tower which will be converted into a penthouse apartment with 360-degree views of the area.The project is scheduled to be completed in 2016.Save this picture!© AA StudioArchitectsAA StudioLocation160 Imlay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, USALandscape DesignFuture Green StudioDeveloperEst4ate FourArea230000.0 ft2Project Year2016PhotographsAA StudioLocation160 Imlay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, USAProject Year2016PhotographsAA StudioArea230000.0 ft2Project gallerySee allShow lessModern Masters Of Materiality: An Interview With Australia’s Tonkin Zulaikha GreerArticlesThe Paris Debate: Must Preservation Inhibit Urban Renewal?ArticlesProject locationAddress:160 Imlay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgEl 9 de mayo — En pocos días se espera que el Congreso de los Estados Unidos finalice lo que equivale a una estocada final a su territorio, Puerto Rico. Si alguien tenía alguna duda sobre la condición colonial de este archipiélago perteneciente – pero no parte de – EUA, esta legislación lo esclarecerá.Llamada la HR 4900 o ‘PROMESA’ por su nombre en inglés “Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act” (Ley de Fiscalización, Manejo y Estabilización Económica), esta propuesta en realidad será la agencia de cobro al servicio de los bonistas de Wall Street. Crearía una Junta llamada de Control Fiscal, JCF, para ese fin.Aunque creada por republicanos, no implica que los demócratas estén totalmente contra este esfuerzo. Su inmovilidad y tímidas declaraciones en su contra los ponen en contubernio con este crimen. Mientras la Casa Blanca mira desde la distancia echándole toda la culpa al Congreso y esperando que éste, el cual responde a Wall Street, resuelva la crisis.Con una deuda pública (e ilegítima) que supera los $72 miles de millones, y sin una economía propia y sustentable, el gobernador Alejandro García Padilla en varias ocasiones ha declarado que la deuda es impagable, y de hecho, el pasado 1 de mayo no se pudieron pagar los $420 millones ‘adeudados’ en esa fecha. Acción que se espera repetir el 1 de julio cuando vence otro pagaré por la cuantiosa suma de $2 mil millones.Este impago que representa el más reciente capítulo del deterioro económico de PR, saca a relucir la preocupación de los bonistas que temen una reestructuración de la deuda que pueda mermar sus multimillonarias ganancias.Criminales disposiciones¿Qué disposiciones encierra esta ‘Promesa’? El 12 de abril, el Comité de Recursos Naturales del Congreso estadounidense emitió su informe de 121 páginas.Con la habitual arrogancia imperialista los representantes Rob Bishop (R-UT), presidente del comité y Sean Duffy (R-WI), patrocinador del proyecto, emitieron una declaración que en parte dice: “Este paquete de reformas restaurará las barreras de protección de la libertad y el autogobierno en Puerto Rico. Responsabilizará a Puerto Rico de su deuda, descubrirá los estados financieros auditados, hará cumplir la responsabilidad fiscal y reducirá la burocracia que mantiene atada la economía de la isla. Proporcionará herramientas para redirigir a Puerto Rico de una vía de miseria hacia un camino de prosperidad, preservando la libertad y las oportunidades para la próxima generación”. (texto in inglés: tinyurl.com/zo5elhx )Claro está que aquí no han contado a los miles de puertorriqueñas/os entre las edades de 20-40 años que han tenido que emigrar debido a la falta de empleos y salarios suficientes para mantener a una familia.Entre sus puntos resaltan los siguiente. La JCF estaría compuesta por siete miembros nombrados por el presidente de los EUA y escogidos por los líderes de la Cámara de Representantes y del Senado más una persona designada por el gobernador de PR la cual no tendría derecho al voto.Sus poderes – que hay que recordar que están dirigidos al pago de los bonistas – serían abarcadores y autónomos, sin tener que rendir cuentas al pueblo puertorriqueño ni regirse por sus leyes. Todas las disposiciones, regulaciones, presupuestos, préstamos, reestructuración, en fin, toda acción del gobierno de PR y cualquiera de sus instrumentos tendrá que ser aprobado y certificado por la JCF. Podrá determinar e imponer el presupuesto, incluso sobre cualquier presupuesto aprobado por el gobierno insular. Puede investigar y/o penalizar a cualquier persona. Puede congelar puestos de empleos y tendrá la potestad de que se requiera su aprobación para cualquier contrato que sea mayor de $100,000.00.Todos los casos relacionados a la duda se verán solo a nivel de la corte federal y cualquier plan de reestructuración de la deuda deberá ser consistente con su Plan Fiscal y que sea para el “mejor beneficio de los acreedores”. (noticiasmicrojuris.files.wordpress.com)Para “mejorar” las oportunidades de la próxima generación,” proponen reducir el salario mínimo de las y los trabajadores menores de 25 años de edad, de $7.25 a $4.25!Otra disposición para de paso “ahorrarle algún dinerito” al gobierno estadounidense tiene que ver con Vieques. Luego de la valiente lucha del pueblo para sacar a la Marina de la isla-municipio de Vieques, el Departamento del Interior de EUA mantenía una parte del territorio donde éste tenía el deber de limpiar la enorme contaminación producto de 60 años de bombardeos. Algo que hasta ahora no ha realizado y que permanece como una demanda del pueblo viequense. ‘Promesa’ propone que se “ceda” esa zona al gobierno de PR pero con la salvedad de que, “el Secretario de la Defensa no podría ser demandado por parte del Gobierno de Puerto Rico, el Municipio de Vieques o de personas de clase alguna; ni se le podría reclamar indemnizaciones como resultado de emisiones de sustancias peligrosas o contaminantes como resultado de las operaciones de la Marina en dichos terrenos, salvo que la reclamación incluya una serie de exigencias dispuestas por la propia Ley en su Sección 1502.“El HR 4900 dispone, además que se dejaría sin efecto el acuerdo de cooperación por parte del Secretario del Interior en tales Zonas de Conservación liberando de responsabilidad en la conservación de los terrenos al Departamento del Interior”. (tinyurl.com/gsnswv5)Líderes comunitarios de Vieques, sin embargo, respondieron a esto con una declaración conjunta. “Queremos que se le devuelva al pueblo viequense los terrenos que ahora están en manos del Departamento del Interior Federal (DIF), pero exigimos la limpieza de todos los terrenos, incluyendo aquellos que están ahora bajo jurisdicción del DIF por parte de la Marina y/o cualquier otro ente responsable, según lo requiere el Comprehensive Enviromental Response, Compensation and Liability Act”. (tinyurl.com/jyu6uve)Esta JCF ha despertado gran indignación en el movimiento progresista puertorriqueño.El pueblo boricua necesita demostraciones de solidaridad del movimiento antiimperialista mundial y sobre todo desde los Estados Unidos para detener esta criminal iniciativa. ¡Digamos NO a la Junta de Control Fiscal! ¡Libertad para Puerto Rico!El ataque frontal del imperialismo contra el movimiento y contra los sindicatos militantes y la lucha actual serán objeto del próximo artículo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

After speaking to all of the women in the first round, Phi Mu withdrew from the process.Instead, Phi Mu began a three-week recruitment on Aug. 29. The sorority has had an informational tent set up near the Founders Statute for much of this week.“We will be at campus tables, holding recruitment events, and having personal interviews with each potential new member going through our process,” Roberts said.In order to be considered a member, each woman must sign up, attend a personal interview with a Phi Mu staff member, and attend at least one recruitment event.“Being a charter member of Phi Mu is a once in a lifetime opportunity to start traditions and leave a legacy at TCU,” Roberts said.The next Phi Mu events will be Sept. 7 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom, and the last recruitment sessions will be held Sept. 13 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the BLUU Auditorium.Phi Mu will celebrate its Bid Day on Sept. 15 in the King Family Commons.TCU selected Phi Mu as the newest chapter on campus in fall of 2011. Phi Mu plans to participate alongside the other sororities for the entire formal recruitment process next fall.Interested women can contact Roberts at [email protected] or receive updates by following Phi Mu on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

TCU began the game by missing their first 10 shots, allowing Baylor to jump out to a 13-0 lead that they would never relinquish.“We had good shots that just didn’t fall to start the game,” TCU head coach Raegan Pebley said.The Horned Frogs shooting woes continued throughout the game, as they had five-minute stretches in both the third and fourth quarter where they failed to score. The team’s 16 made field goal attempts was their lowest this season.“We just didn’t convert,” Pebley said. “Seven assists on only 16 made field goals isn’t going to be quite enough.”The seven assists tied their season low.Baylor’s season scoring margin of +31.1 is the second highest mark in the nation, and they proved it in their 32-point defeat of the Horned Frogs.They had all five starters score in double figures, led by senior guard Kristy Wallace who had 19 points. Kalani Brown finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds.“Baylor’s a team that forces you to have to play with little room for error,” Pebley said.They defeated the Horned Frogs by 20 in their first meeting  Feb. 10.It was senior night for Sydney Coleman and Toree ThompsonPhoto by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe game also marked the final home game for TCU’s two seniors, Toree Thompson and Sydney Coleman.“These two women are a lot of what our culture is about,” Pebley said. “Two women thathave a growth mindset, they have so much grit and determination.”TCU’s chances of making their first NCAA tournament since 2010 are slimmer than ever, as the loss likely slots them for the NIT.The Horned Frogs will look to end their season on a high note when they travel to take on Oklahoma State Monday.

Responses can be filed at my2020census.gov using the 12-digit census identification number provided on mailed materials or by entering a name, address and phone number in order to pull up the survey.The short questionnaire — which does not include a citizenship question — should take about 10 minutes to complete.“Everyone should respond to the 2020 Census as soon as they receive their invitation — and when they’re finished, they can make sure their friends, families and social networks know about the importance of responding,” according to the Census Bureau. “With the flexibility and support of the American people, we will achieve a complete and accurate count which helps guide funding decisions for things like hospitals, roads and emergency services.”Other more detailed census surveys are now being conducted by phone rather than in-person.The bureau is also still actively hiring in Los Angeles and elsewhere. People can apply at www.2020census.gov/jobs.As for students whose colleges and universities have closed in the wake of the coronavirus, the bureau clarified earlier this week that they should be counted by the school, even if they have temporarily moved home.Historically, a robust and accurate census response has relied on community outreach and door-to-door visits by census takers, who were set to begin outreach in late May. The bureau said it would continue to evaluate operations based on the guidance of federal, state and local health authorities.The planned completion date is July 31, but the bureau earlier said that date will be adjusted if needed to achieve a complete and accurate count.

first_imgSkip Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… “I would be afraid to guess how many lemons have been on that tree but it’s loaded,” she said. ��And, we’ve picked a lot of lemons off already.”The only problem that the Smileys have found with the lemon growing process is that a good strong, spring wind will blow the blooms off.Insects don’t seem to be drawn to the bitter fruit.“I remember that when I was a little girl, my grandmother had a lemon tree and the lemons were as hard as knots,” Smiley said. “Like wild lemons would be. But these on our tree have soft skins, just like those in the grocery store.” Email the author James and Mary Sue Hilburn picked 648 lemons off their tree in one picking and there are more than a few green ones “coming on.”“When the weather report said that it was going to freeze, we started picking,” J.W. Hilburn said. “We had a good crop and didn’t want to lose it.”While the Hilburns were picking the lemons on one side of the tree, they seemed to be growing back on the other.“We didn’t realize how many there were but, all in all, we probably had close to a thousand,” Hilburn said. “Lemon trees are easy to maintain and the investment is low.”The Hilburns have more lemons than they have places to store them.“We’ve got them in big boxes in two rooms,” Hilburn said. “That’s a lot of lemons. Most of them are about average size but some are ten or more inches around. That’s a big lemon.”The Hilburns have sacked up lemons for family and friends and they still have more than enough to fill a 50-gallon drum.“I don’t know if the tree will produce like this next year but I want to see what it does,” Hilburn said. “So, I’m going to cover it for the winter. The wind comes straight over the house and will take a bite out of it. Don’t want to lose it.”The wind and the birds are the threats to the Hilburns’ lemon tree.“In the summer, I had to put a net over the tree to keep the birds from eating the tiny lemons,” he said. “And the cold wind could damage it. So, I’ll keep it covered and see what kind of crop we get next year.”Like the Smileys’ lemon tree, the Hilburns’ tree is four years old.Their bumper crops could be a once in a blue moon kind of thing but they are hoping not.Growing bushels of lemons in Pike County is a bit of an odd thing. Neither couple plans to get into the citrus fruit business but they are enjoying the fruits of this year’s harvest. And, as the saying goes, since life gave them lemons, they plan to make lemonade or better still, lemon cheesecake.Whether citrus fruit can be grown on a large scale in Pike County is still in question.Elaine Carmichael in Goshen has a heavy producing Satsuma tree that might indicate that the loose-skinned orange might be a good producer. However, Smiley said she has an orange tree and a lime tree that are nothing to brag about. So, perhaps, it’s the tree with the fruit that’s impossible to eat that is the future of Pike County’s citrus fruit industry, if there is one at all. By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Lemon trees all across Pike County are producing bumper crops this year. Jason Smiley is pictured above with a lemon tree that was a gift to his mother four years ago. Below, Mynetter Smiley’s tree has been tended by her husband, Jimmy Smiley and continues to produce lemons into the winter season. Inset, Elaine Carmichael has a satsuma tree that is producing a lot of sweet fruit at this time of year.The lyrics of a song Peter, Paul and Mary made a poplar back in the 1960s went something like, “Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet, but the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.”If there’s any truth to that, then there will be more than a thousand fruits of the poor lemon that go to waste right here in Pike County.The Hilburns and the Smileys of South Pike County have had bumper crops of lemons this season giving notice that citrus fruits can successfully be grown in Southeast Alabama.

Perhaps bringing sweetness to the lemons much like the way frost brings sweetness to sugar cane.“But our lemons mighty sour,” Smiley said. “I’m giving them to family for whatever they want to do with them. I might make a pie. My grandmother used to make lemon cheesecakes with hers.”Smiley stopped short of saying that she’s, for sure, going to make a lemon cheesecake or even a pie. She probably won’t have company coming around in hopes of getting a lemon or two, but a lemon cheesecake in the cupboard would be mighty inviting.A little south of the Smileys, Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Mynetter Smiley, laughingly, gives 95 percent of the credit for her lemon crop to her husband, Jimmy Smiley. She does take some credit for the crop because the tree was a gift to her.“But Jimmy says the house is mine and the yard is his,” she said. “He’s done all of the watering of the tree and he’s kept the weeds from around it but it’s clean out there anyway. The lemon tree’s his pet.”Smiley received the lemon tree as a give about four years ago. She stuck it out in the fall. The next year and the year after it produced a few lemons, but nothing like this year.
