Siamese Ratchakru is a mixed development project comprising of two towers; an office and a condominium. During the 1997 Asian financial crisis, the real estate market crashed. More than 10 years later, there were still evidence of abandoned construction sites around Bangkok, Siamese Ratchakru was one of them. In 2011, the government released an act to waive impeding regulations to allow these projects to be completed without compromising people safety.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe architect had to work with existing structural foundations and within the approved building footprint and height. With the office tower, existing footing prescribed its position close to the site boundary, thus disallowed opportunities for openings. As a response the architect carved into the block allowing multiple openings for natural light and ventilation. The arrangement afforded the opportunity for planter boxes and balconies leading to more appealing workspaces. In order to compensate for missing area carved from the block, parking is re-planned to be more efficient resulting in a parking floor reduction, thus replaced with a condominium floor.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioFor the condominium tower, the architect proposed cantilevered balconies, as the majority of units are small. The balconies are angled to direct views towards the city and away from the office tower in front. Restrictions of the prescribed column positions made for a relatively narrow configuration, and so careful planning was essential to create the best possible internal environment. This was done by folding the shared wall and aligning the service functions. Planted walls run down both edges of the residential tower, concealing fire escapes and internal planting is integrated as much as possible in common areas; shared facilities deck and lobbies.Save this picture!SectionSiamese Ratchakru is an example of how abandoned structures could be revived to become desirable development and architecture relevant to current times.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessºC (Do-C) Ebisu / Schemata ArchitectsSelected ProjectsMom Restaurant / AML Design studioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bangkok, ThailandLocation to be used only as a reference.

For this, the suite was divided into two volumes, bedroom and bathroom, connected by the closet, in order to soften the relation between the built and the surroundings. The larger room volume turns to the sea and enjoys the panoramic view through a large opening. In the bathroom volume, the opening is a skylight.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!AxonométricaSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThe choice of materials also proved to be sensible by incorporating the rustic aesthetics of the family house’s brick cladding into the new project.

Charity Commission launches co-ordinated charity enquiry service

first_img Following its recent strategic review, the Charity Commission has announced the launch of Charity Commission Direct, a one-stop shop for charity related enquiries.The Commission hopes that by centralising its enquiries function, it will better be able to meet customer needs by providing more accurate, relevant information with improved response times to postal and email requests.All enquiries to the Commission will now be assessed by staff at the service, based in Liverpool, and priority requests identified for action. Other features of the new service include a dedicated helpline for trustee enquiries and a database of frequently asked questions. Later in the year a signposting facility will provide details of specialist organisations for non-Commission enquiries.

Our Lasting Tribute launches new web platform

first_img Our Lasting Tribute (OLT) has launched its new web platform for creating and managing tribute funds.The new platform – which was previewed at UK Fundraising’s Perfect Pitch last month – has taken almost two years to develop and now allows donors to set up tribute funds, write their own copy for pages, post picture into a gallery and write a journal. Visitors to the tribute site can write messages in the visitors book and make donations.It help donors with their memories and also acts as a powerful fundraising tool to help their chosen charity by raising funds in memory of a loved one. Tribute funds can also be supplemented by sub-funds for special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries.Managing director of OLT Kevin Kibble said: “This is a major step forward in tribute giving and puts the donor at the heart of the programme.” He added that the platform has been designed to be accessible to most sizes of organisation. “It is a low-cost, easily-administered method of introducing the enormous potential of tribute fundraising.”The new platform has been running as a live test with Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Director of fundraising Chris Askew said: “The platform is already benefiting our supporters and one Crocus Fund holder who is organising a sponsored event finds it hugely motivating that participants of the event can support the tribute with funds of their own.”http://breakthrough.tributefunds.com Howard Lake | 9 May 2008 | News  31 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Whitewater About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Anti-war protests in Ukraine expose bogus ‘ceasefire’ plan

first_imgMiners in Donetsk rally against Ukraine military assault on the Donbass region, June 18.Photo: Donetsk People’s Republic press officeJune 20 — An anti-war protest by 100 women shut down the Chernivtsi-Zhitomir highway near the town of Mahala in western Ukraine on June 19. The women — mothers of Ukrainian soldiers — demanded that the government in Kiev withdraw their sons from the fratricidal war to suppress the anti-fascist uprising in southeastern Ukraine. (Depo.ua)A day earlier, hundreds of miles to the east, in the capital of the Donetsk People’s Republic, thousands of mineworkers and their families marched to demand an end to the junta’s “anti-terrorist operation.” Workers from 16 regional mines downed tools to join the protest.The miners issued an ultimatum to Kiev: Withdraw your troops within 48 hours or we will take up arms and join the people’s militias defending Donetsk and Lugansk.By the time their deadline passed on June 20, Donetsk Prime Minister Alexander Borodai had announced: “Formation of a division of miners, who have decided to defend their homes and families, has begun. Five hundred people are already enrolled in the ranks,” Borodai told ITAR-TASS news agency.The miners’ determination was given added weight by simultaneous reports that a 4-year-old boy trapped in the besieged city of Slavyansk had just died after being hit by mortar fire. His mother was also killed, RT.com reported.According to a report issued June 18 by the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, at least 356 people have been killed in the latest military operation, 257 of them civilians, including 14 children.Together, the eastern miners and western soldiers’ mothers have given a resounding answer to the fraudulent “ceasefire” plan announced June 18 by Ukrainian President Peter Poroshenko, who represents the U.S.-backed alliance of oligarchs, neoliberal politicians and fascists that illegally seized power in Kiev earlier this year.Poroshenko demands surrenderTo great media fanfare, Poroshenko announced that he would declare a unilateral ceasefire “soon” in the war on the southeast. His announcement came after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.But what was the actual content of Poroshenko’s “offer”?“Poroshenko’s plan would offer insurgents in the eastern provinces that form the nation’s industrial heartland a chance to lay down weapons or leave the country,” the Associated Press reported. If this happens, Poroshenko claims, those who haven’t committed “grave crimes” will be pardoned.“I can say that the period of the ceasefire will be rather short,” Poroshenko said. “We anticipate that immediately after this, the disarming of the illegal military formations will take place.”By “illegal military formations,” Poroshenko means the popular militias of workers, youths and veterans that have defended the Donbass population from Kiev’s military campaign — but not neo-Nazi gangs like Right Sector, Maidan Self-Defense and the Social Nationalists that have carried out acts of terror against the regime’s opponents, including the massacre of 48 people at the Odessa House of Trade Unions.In fact, Poroshenko’s ceasefire proposal is no different than the threats made by the junta all along.The people’s governments in Donetsk and Lugansk — where the population voted overwhelmingly for independence in a democratic referendum May 11 — made it clear that the only basis for negotiations with Kiev is withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from the region.Denis Pushilin, chair of the Supreme Soviet of the Donetsk People’s Republic, called Poroshenko’s offer “senseless.”“They cease fire, we lay down weapons, and then they will capture us weaponless,” he said. (Dozhd TV, June 18)It’s crucial for the U.S. working class and anti-war movement to understand that the crisis in southeastern Ukraine is not a problem of a small number of intransigent militants, much less a conspiracy of “Russian agents.”In fact, the whole population on the Donbass has said “No!” to being ruled by a right-wing regime that seeks to impose austerity, NATO bases and the rule of neo-Nazi gangs on the whole population. Their determination is shared by millions of people in other parts of the southeast, and the unrest is increasingly spreading westward.Even if the population of the southeast wanted to surrender their arms, could Poroshenko’s ceasefire offer be trusted?The real muscles behind his regime are fascist gangs like Svoboda and Right Sector, working in tandem with the oligarchy that has grown wealthy off the stolen, privatized infrastructure built up over decades by the Soviet working class.They in turn are taking cues from the U.S. and NATO as they flex their military and economic prowess against Russia.The massacre of anti-fascists and trade unionists in Odessa; the bombing of downtown Lugansk; the attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev; and the targeting of hospitals, schools and civilian housing in the Donbass — all demonstrate that no confidence can be put in the Poroshenko regime.What’s really at stake?To get a sense of what’s really at stake, it is necessary to look past Poroshenko’s declarations, made for the benefit of U.S. and European corporate media, and see what the junta’s supporters are saying among themselves.At a cabinet meeting on June 11, for example, Ukrainian Defense Minister Mykhailo Koval said a “complete filtering” of the Donbass population was needed — a euphemism for concentration camps, according to anti-fascist activists. (Ukraine Channel 5 News)“It will take a complete filtering of the people,” Koval said. “It requires special filtration activities. It’s said that among the people, including women, some were not associated with separatism, with those who committed crimes in Ukraine related to terrorist activities. While this may be, we have a lot of information. The base is very powerful. And the corresponding structure, which is designed for this, they will carry out. In addition, there is a problem associated with the fact that people will settle in different regions.”In a June 13 letter to Poroshenko, oligarch Igor Kolomoysky, appointed governor of the Dnepropetrovsk region by the junta, proposed erecting a 2,000-kilometer-long electrified fence with barbed wire, minefields and ditches along the border with Russia, at a reported cost of $135 million. Kolomoysky’s assistant told Vesti.ua that business owners were already pledging to help fund the project.Coming at a time when tens of thousands of refugees are fleeing Kiev’s military assault by crossing the border into Russia, the proposal has less to do with keeping Russia out than with keeping people opposed to the junta trapped.“Here you have three illustrations of modern Ukrainian life,” said Victor Shapinov of the leftist Union Borotba (Struggle). “The defense minister promising filtration camps and resettlement for the population of the southeast. Prime Minister [Yatsenyuk] calling his fellow citizens ‘subhumans.’ The battalion of the Ukraine Ministry of Internal Affairs fighting under a banner adorned with SS symbols.“Some inexorable historical logic makes the Kiev authorities copy the ‘Thousand-Year Reich.’ Such copying cannot be accidental — it is a consequence of ideological, political and methodological proximity. No, I do not want to say that in Ukraine there is a Nazi regime and Poroshenko is a modern Hitler. But the movement precisely in this direction is felt ever more clearly.” (“Concentration Camps for Donbass,” Borotba.org)Now more than ever, it is imperative to build a global movement in solidarity with the People’s Republics and the anti-fascist resistance in Ukraine.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

‘No surrender, no retreat’

first_img“We come here to honor them — to commemorate Black resistance both inside and outside the walls!” announced Dequi Kioni-Sadiki to a very large crowd at the Harlem State Office Building. She said this as chairperson of the “21st Annual Dinner Tribute to Political Prisoners and their Families” on March 4.The Malcolm X Commemoration Committee and the Black Panther Party sponsored this event for the many dedicated advocates of men and women incarcerated, as many say, because of their struggles with the BPP and the many liberation movements of the 1960s and 1970s. These political prisoners include Herman Bell, Seth Hayes, Mumia Abu-Jamal, the Move 9, Leonard Peltier, Sundiata Acoli and Verona Bowers.“When we say ‘Black resistance matters: No surrender, no retreat,’ it is because neither our captured freedom fighters, their families or the movement lawyers and doctors we will be honoring have [surrendered or retreated],” said Kioni-Sadiki. She went on to salute the “unsung legal warriors” representing the prisoners. Those who were hailed at the event and who attended were Jill Soffiyah Elijah, Joan Gibbs, Florence Morgan, Bob Boyle, Nkechi Taifa, Susan Tipograph and Eve Rosahn. Also cited were Lynne Stewart, who is gravely ill, and Michael Tarif Warren, who could not attend.This annual tribute was established 21 years ago by Iyaluua Ferguson, spouse of the late co-founder of the Malcolm X Commemoration Committee and former political prisoner Herman Ferguson. This dinner was called to build support for political prisoners and to raise funds for their commissary needs.There were cultural performances by Harlem’s own spoken word and dancing artists and revolutionary Brooklyn hip-hop artist “Spirit Child & The New Black Arts Movement.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Nuggets won 105-99. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)When his number was called, Kenrich Williams answered the bell.An injury-plagued New Orleans Pelicans lineup has allowed the former TCU men’s basketball forward to see quality minutes for the first time in his young career, and he’s made the most of his opportunity.The Pelicans are currently missing four of their five regular starters, allowing Williams to record a team-high 37 minutes in Wednesday, Jan. 30 loss to the Denver Nuggets.Williams has averaged 23 minutes in each of his last four games, 10 more than his career-high in minutes before Jan. 24.TCU fans saw a familiar version of Williams in which he attacked the boards and made his presence felt on the defensive end. Williams grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds in Tuesday’s upset victory over the Rockets in Houston and scored a career-high 21 points on over 50 percent shooting from beyond the arc Wednesday night.“That’s what we’re used to seeing from him,” New Orleans teammate Jahlil Okafor said following Williams’ 16-rebound performance. “It’s actually in practice – he’s the guy that gets us extra possessions, defensive rebounding as well. He just has the knack for finding the ball and he came up big for us tonight.”Kenrich Williams (undrafted rookie out of TCU) had himself a night for the Pelicans with 21 points and 8 boards on 5/9 from behind the arc. At 6’7″, 210, he has awesome size for a wing and an equally sweet stroke. #doitBIG #NBARooks pic.twitter.com/u6q0R1IMsP— Draft Lead (@DraftLead) January 31, 2019Williams transferred to TCU from New Mexico Junior College after not receiving any Division 1 offers out of high school and overcame multiple knee injuries before starting in all but one game during his junior and senior seasons.Kenrich Williams drives to the rim against Kansas State on Senior Night. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.“I thought [Williams] did a great job,” Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. “The one thing that you find out in all this is guys have an opportunity, and some guys really take advantage of it. Last night he had 16 rebounds, and tonight he makes five three-pointers. You give those guys an opportunity, and you’re happy when they take advantage of it.”However, Williams had an unconventional path to the league and a spot on a professional roster was never guaranteed. His coaches thought he was in a good position heading into the NBA Draft until red flags appeared during a pre-draft physical.“So now he’s got to battle himself again and make decisions and make choices and take a two-way contract and stick with believing in himself,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said.Williams now sits alone as the only free agent in the league on a full contract.“It gives us hope,” forward J.D. Miller said. “He’s just making a rep for us to get up there with him.”More @bball_ref fun:Tonight, Kenrich Williams became the first player since Blake Griffin in 2010 to go for 16+ rebounds in one of the first 15 games of their career. pic.twitter.com/wNGIdhs3hq— Will Guillory (@WillGuillory) January 30, 2019Dixon said Williams’ success will only help the program in the future.“You recruit kids and tell them you’re going to make them better, and there’s no better story than an unrecruited high school kid becoming an NBA player and developing him as he’s here,” Dixon said.Williams and the Pelicans will return to the hardwood at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday against the Spurs in San Antonio.

The app — called Vuzag — was developed by two SMU football players, Daniel Gresham and Rob Seals, and a 2018 TCU graduate, Chris Lane.

TCU, SMU and several other universities throughout the country have their own “group chats.”“Whether you’re here or in Miami, the app will learn stuff you like to do, what places you like to go to and on your homepage, it can recommend, based on your location, what type of stuff you would be interested in attending or going to,” Gresham said.The app provides real-time search results, and all the content that pops up is based on the user’s location. “All of the users on the app who are at these locations create the information, so the search engine is crowd-sourced,” Gresham said.Vuzag’s users also have the ability to create public or private events and invite people to join their events. “You create your own introduction video and anyone within a specific mile radius that chooses that category you put it under can attend,” Gresham said.To say thanks to users for using the app and helping to build the platform, they’re rewarded with points and prizes. “At the end of the month, there’s a top-10 leaderboard which shows the top point earners in the app,” Gresham said. Gresham said January’s top point earner won tickets to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. It’s their way to show their users they’re grateful.“The users are building the search engine,” Gresham said. “You understand that we are using your information, but we want to be different and reward you guys for using this platform.”Other past giveaways to top point earners include tickets to the Texas State Fair, Beyonce tickets and several other food and experience deals.Gresham said they are looking to sell the company one day, branding Vuzag as anyone’s “live snapshot of their local community.” Previous articleMen’s tennis finishes 2-1 at ITA Indoor NationalsNext articleBaseball sweeps Kentucky in opening weekend Michael Rogers RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Linkedin Facebook Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Facebook ReddIt ‘Unchartered territory’ as Trump impeachment trial begins in the Senate Former President Jimmy Carter hospitalized Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/ Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/last_img read more
