Log for a productive emerging dwellingArchitecture as a social catalyst for transformation from the basics.There are times when starting a project is a dizzying adventure; seductive and inevitable. Passion is enmeshed in a series of circumstances to solve; technical issues, improvisations, interventions, collaborations, then articulating all initiatives to reach the aim: a house for Velfor, his wife and three children.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaLocated in the province of El Oro, Ecuador, the town of Chacras appears as in an old western movie, full of historical references due to its proximity to neighboring Peru (Manuelita Saenz, partner of Simon Bolivar, the Liberator lived here). Presently Don Velfor lives here with his family. They lost their home in the earthquake from April this year and found refuge in an area of 12 x 10 meters partially occupied by his mother-in-law Mami-Itzi.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaThe project was built in May 2016 during a period of 10 days. Natura Futura Arquitectura along with Cronopios-El Oro (a cultural management collective) carried out the different processes. After proposing an emerging design, we made calls through press, digital media networking and word of mouth. Donated materials and tools are collected, and volunteers gather for the construction; they are trained to perform the various daily tasks that will achieve the construction of the project.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaAfter making the foundations with concrete and bricks, the house is articulated as modules on pallets, built with pine wood, usually used to load goods in large warehouses. Sticks and strips are used as structural support. The windows were built with semi-hard wood and recycled waste strips. In the end, zinc plates are used to make the roof.Save this picture!DiagramationWe propose strategies to shore up the family economy, affected by the work stoppage and change of place. Creating a family garden was a first idea to generate a new spirit of livelihood. We included Don Velfor in a process of learning by doing so he can replicate what he learned in basic construction, in order to establish an economic activity within the region. We propose spaces for events to generate revenue, such as selling snacks or lunches.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaThe access platform is a space for social interaction between family members, and with the families of adjacent houses. It serves both to set a table with chairs and lunch, or to lay a carpet or mat and rest. The opening day a cultural event was made: a puppet show with the group Rompecabezas.Transparency, light and wind.Save this picture!PlanThe house is based on three volumes, two used for sleeping and one for kitchen and living room, with an optional progressive growth towards the platform. The distance from the elevated house to the ground protects the structures from moisture while allowing a constant flow of air under the floor. The height of the roof and open spaces plus the transparency of the windows allow for cross ventilation at all times. The form of the roof and its eaves are like a large hat that protects the house providing shade and protecting it from the rain. It is the choice of passive systems.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaThe constancy of pallet modules is mixed with spaces for windows whose spaces between strips allow for light to leak generating whimsical shadows inside. The low floor level windows function as escape doors for the little ones; recreational possibilities are embraced in a space that encourages fluidity.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaThe wide front door articulates the basic kitchen, with its shelves made of recycled baskets (used for fruit) with the platform expanding the space. The garden made of tires filled with sown ground renews hope in children who embrace it as their own project.Save this picture!© Eduardo Cruz y Natura FuturaWe seek to create a new core within the community thus reactivating the area, inverting its meaning, moving from moments of anxiety and uncertainty to a transformation from the basics, whose social catalyst is architecture.Project gallerySee allShow lessBurgos & Garrido + LLAMA Urban Design Win Competition for Lima Art Museum (MALI) Exp…Architecture NewsZaha Hadid Architects to Design Hotel and Residential Tower in QatarUnbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:Reserva Ecológica Militar Arenillas, E50, EcuadorLocation to be used only as a reference.

RNLI holds official naming ceremony of lifeboat funded by Ferraris

first_img Tagged with: Donated goods Major gift Melanie May | 29 April 2019 | News RNLI holds official naming ceremony of lifeboat funded by Ferraris  “As Richard’s first cousin and sadly the last surviving Colton, I, together with all my family and his friends are immensely proud of this wonderful gesture! It is of even greater significance personally because my husband and I have always been keen offshore sailors and recognise full well what the RNLI means to the sailing community amongst many others.”  306 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis9  Main image: The £6.6m Ferrari, the newly named Hastings Lifeboat and the Hastings RNLI volunteer crew. Credit: RNLI/Kt Bruce  305 total views,  2 views today The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has held the official naming ceremony of a Shannon class lifeboat funded by the legacy of the late Richard Colton who left two classic Ferraris to the charity in his Will.Businessman Richard Colton passed away in March 2015. A collector and restorer of classic cars for 40 years, he left the RNLI two of the world’s rarest Ferraris. Both went to auction, a 1960 red Ferrari 250 GT SWB sold for £6.6m, while a silver 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4 sold for £1.93m – making the vehicles the most valuable items ever left to the RNLI in a single legacy. Part of this has been used to fund the all-weather lifeboat Richard and Caroline Colton and launch and recovery system for the lifeboat, which is stationed at Hastings. Designed in-house by RNLI naval architects, the Shannon class lifeboat was introduced to the RNLI’s fleet in 2013. The Shannon class is the first of the RNLI’s all-weather lifeboats to be powered by water-jets rather than traditional propellers, making it the most agile and manoeuvrable lifeboat in the charity’s fleet.The special ceremony, held at the lifeboat station, was attended by a large crowd who were welcomed by the RNLI’s crew and volunteers, along with the family of Richard Colton and dignitaries.RNLI Hastings Coxswain, Phil Jones, said: “The naming ceremony and service of dedication is a very special day for everyone associated with the lifeboat station, and we are so grateful to the legacy of Richard Colton, for making this happen. His legacy will enable the station to carry out our lifesaving work and serve the community of Hastings.“Six out of ten lifeboat launches are only made possible by legacies, large and small, left to the RNLI in people’s wills. These gifts pay for the training and equipment we as lifeboat crew rely on when we launch into the unknown, in all weathers, day or night to save others.”Mrs Jo Adams, cousin of Richard Colton who performed the naming duties on the day, said: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

All issues are LGBTQ issues!

first_imgThe annual Pride Parade in Buffalo is huge, raucous and wonderfully well-attended, but for many years it has been depoliticized by corporate sponsorship, becoming a party rather than a rallying point for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people. For the parade on June 1 this year, the Buffalo/Western New York International Action Center called activists out to bring a radical political edge back to Pride.Declaring that “All issues are LGBTQ issues!” the group carried a banner and drove a car plastered with placards, and urged activists to march in the contingent to unite against war, racism, sexism and anti-LGBTQ bigotry. Throughout the length of the parade, the contingent was greeted with a huge roar of approval from the crowds.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Protest exposes anti-woman group

first_imgWW photo: Kris HamelEfforts are underway to stop the anti-woman group “A Voice for Men” from holding its first international conference in Detroit the last weekend in June. This “Men’s Rights Advocates” group, based in Houston, promotes male supremacy, sexism and sexual violence against women. It was designated a hate group in 2012 by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate crimes against oppressed people in the U.S.Hundreds opposed to the conference rallied and marched through downtown Detroit on June 7. Organized largely through social media, the diverse and mainly youthful crowd rallied at Grand Circus Park where speakers denounced the misogynist, hate-based terrorism of MRAs and their anti-woman agenda. Some spoke about surviving sexual assault. Several raised the group’s anti-lesbian-gay-bi-trans-queer agenda and racist nature of MRAs. The LGBTQ community was well represented in the crowd, and Motor City Pride weekend started later that day.The case of Marissa Alexander in Florida and the right of women to fight back were raised. Alexander now faces a 60-year sentence for standing her ground and firing a warning shot into the ceiling as her estranged spouse threatened her. The young African-American mother was freed from a 20-year prison sentence and granted a new trial because of an international struggle on her behalf. She is being prosecuted for three felonies to be served consecutively by the same team that failed to convict George Zimmerman in the racist killing of young Trayvon Martin.UNITE HERE Local 24 representatives passed out signs to “Boycott Doubletree” and denounced the hotel for hosting the conference of bigots. The union is waging a struggle for union recognition, decent wages and dignity for hotel industry workers, many of whom are women and people of color.Unafraid and undeterred by male supremacist threats and possible MRA spectators, the protesters marched right up to the Doubletree Hotel and held the street in front of it. They refused to back down as Detroit police first ordered, then begged organizers to “stop the protest.”The crowd chanted “Hey, Doubletree, what do you say, would you host the KKK?!” and “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, MRAs go away!” as hotel management refused to accept more than 3,000 petition signatures demanding Doubletree cancel its reservations for the “men’s rights” conference. After about an hour, a hotel representative finally took the petitions.As of June 8, the “Cancel the men’s rights conference” petition at had more than 3,565 signatures. To add your name, go to demand the company cease catering to bigots who threaten violence against women and cancel the June 27-29 conference, call Atiya Frederick, international public relations manager of Hilton Hotels, at 703-883-6599 and/or email [email protected]Share thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Response of Antarctic fur seals to immobilization with ketamine, a ketamine-diazepam or ketamine-xylazine mixture, and zoletil

first_imgAdult Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella) were immobilized with Zoletil® (n= 172), ketamine (n= 30), ketamine mixed with diazepam (n= 23) and with ketamine mixed with xylazine (n= 45). Response to all drugs was highly variable. There was a relationship between dose rate and level of immobilization in females given Zoletil®. Males were slightly more sensitive to Zoletil® than females but this could have been due to the greater body mass and lower mass‐specific metabolic rate of males. The dose required to achieve a level of immobilization declined with greater body mass for Zoletil® and ketamine but not for ketamine‐diatepam. Ketamine and ketamine‐sedative mixtures commonly caused mild tremoring and occasionally caused convulsions. Neither reaction was seen with Zoletil®. Mean doses were, Zoletil® 1.5 mg/ kg, ketamine 6.9 mg/kg, ketamine‐diazepam 6.3 mg/kg ketamine and 6.3 μg/kg diazepam, and ketamine‐xylazine 7.3 mg/kg ketamine and 0.62 mg/ kg xylazine. Zoletil® performs at least as well on Antarctic fur seals as ketamine but it may cause respiratory depression. The dose of ketamine required for Antarctic fur seals was greater than for most other species of seals.last_img read more
