In the intent of benefitting from the spectacular panorama towards the bay of Jounieh, the house frames the view through a series of platforms below as well as a suspended horizontal box above. The position of the house is therefore optimized to enhance this view at a maximum while respecting the sloped nature of the terrain. It was conceived as an architectural adaptation of the rocks that characterize the surrounding scenery: a massive volume, seemingly floating in the landscape, houses the private living spaces.Save this picture!© Ieva SaudargaitėIt is clad with sliding stone panels that echo, in their surface, the texture of the rocks. It rests on a transparent box which is shaped by a series of platforms that adapt to the topography. These form a transition from a stepped access that links the street level to the house, into a balcony, and finally, into the enclosed reception area. At the roof level, a light steel pergola is finished with terra-cotta louvers and contains a painting studio surrounded by a roof terrace.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe final composition – a prismatic stone volume in a landscape topped by a red roof – can be read as a subversion of the traditional Lebanese village house that preserves the fundamental elements present while radically opening up the house towards the view and reinterpreting the surrounding elements of nature (rocks) as dynamic shading devices that let particular sun rays into the private spaces of the house through their seemingly cracked structure.Project gallerySee allShow less”Casa Futebol” Proposes a Different Olympic Legacy For Brazil’s StadiumsMiscModern Masters Of Materiality: An Interview With Australia’s Tonkin Zulaikha GreerArticles Share Save this picture!© Ieva Saudargaitė+ 38 Share Tahan Villa / BLANKPAGE ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTahan Villa / BLANKPAGE Architects Houses Architects: BLANKPAGE Architects Area Area of this architecture project Tahan Villa / BLANKPAGE Architects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/523132/tahan-villa-blankpage-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeBLANKPAGE ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKfourHousesLebanonPublished on July 10, 2014Cite: “Tahan Villa / BLANKPAGE Architects” 10 Jul 2014.

Philippine activists demand: ‘Stop the killings and arrests!’

first_img“Kill them all!” ordered Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, addressing the Philippine National Police and Armed Forces of the Philippines on March 5. Two days later, state forces following the dictator’s edict carried out a deadly attack on progressive activists in the Southern Tagalog region.Protest against the March 7 massacre in Southern Tagalog, Philippines. (Photo: philstar.com)On the day now known as “Bloody Sunday,” March 7, police and military troops killed nine unarmed activists and arrested seven others. They targeted labor unionists, peasant leaders, mass organizers and human rights advocates, with the goal of eradicating the opposition to Duterte and the ruling class he represents.Among those executed was Manny Asuncion, Cavite chapter secretary-general of BAYAN, an alliance of progressive Filipino organizations, following a raid at the Workers’ Assistance Center. Also slain were Dumagat tribe members and Indigenous activists Randy de la Cruz and Pury de la Cruz, as well as housing rights advocates Michael Dasigao, Mark Lee “Makmak” Bacasno, Abner Esto and Edward Esto.The 10-year-old son of “fisherfolk” organizers Chai Lemita-Evangelista and Ariel Evangelista witnessed the horror of his parents’ murder.Taken into police custody were Steve Mendoza, executive vice president of OLALIA; Elizabeth Camoral of BAYAN, grabbed at a Defend Yulo Farmers headquarters; Nimfa Lanzanas of Kapatid — Families and Friends of Political Prisoners; Tatay Moises and Dodong Bagsik, peasant leaders; Eugene Eugenio of COURAGE; and Lino Baez of BAYAN.Cristina Palaby, secretary-general of KARAPATAN, an alliance of Philippine human rights groups, denounced “the Duterte regime unleashing the unbridled horrors of fascism and the crackdown on dissenters.” (karapatan.org, March 7)‘True power remains in the people’Gabriela, a grassroots alliance of Filipino women’s groups, condemned the surge in state killings and arrests on Facebook on March 7: “The intensified crackdown follows the same old pattern of attacks against unionists, peasant leaders and activists, who are facing trumped-up charges and planting of evidence. Recently, Ramir Corcolon and Arnedo Lagunias, union leaders, were illegally arrested in Cabuyao Laguna. Military and police conduct synchronized illegal arrests and extrajudicial killings of progressive leaders, combing through … Southern Tagalog.”The coalition stressed: “Now, a day before International Working Women’s Day, the combined forces of military and police have conducted a series of bloody crackdowns on the working class.” As they prepared to commemorate IWWD, they “remain vigilant [to] Duterte’s brutal and outright disregard of our rights. It is evident that Duterte is afraid of the growing strength of our resistance. “On [March 8], united as one, women, farmers, trade unionists, youth, health care workers and toiling masses will lead the march to show Duterte that true power remains in the people.”‘We demand justice!’The U.S. chapter of BAYAN and the Malaya Movement Southern California held an online emergency rally March 11, followed by a demonstration outside the Philippines Consulate in downtown Los Angeles on March 13. They demanded justice for those slain and imprisoned and the ouster of fascist Duterte. They vowed to “resolutely continue the fight of our most recent martyrs who offered their lives for a country that is genuinely free!”These organizations ask that supporters call and email Ambassador Jose Manuel Romualdez at the Philippine Embassy in Washington to condemn the massacre, insist on punishment for the killers and press for the release of all political detainees. They demand the Philippine Supreme Court end the “weaponization of search warrants meant to silence activists, political dissenters and government critics.” The draconian Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 must be revoked, they say, as it allows legally sanctioned state violence. (See BAYAN-USA Facebook for contact information.)Philippine organizers ask their allies in the U.S. to pressure Congress to end all security assistance to Manila, which funds police and military operations against people’s organizations and political opponents. And they seek an end to the Visiting Forces Agreement, which provides U.S. “counterinsurgency” training to Philippine repressive forces.The reign of terror is not over!

Crop Insurance Guarantees Drop Ahead of Spring Planting Season

first_img Corn and soybean crop insurance guarantees have dropped, just in time for the spring planting season that’s right around the corner. A DTN report says that means farmers get less protection against low prices in their revenue policies this year.Guarantees are $3.88 a bushel for corn and $9.17 for soybeans. Those are down 12 and 37 cents respectively from last year. Officials come up with the spring guarantee by averaging the daily close of the December 2020 corn and the November 2020 soybean futures contracts through the month of February.It was poor timing as commodity prices dropped during the final week of February as global markets responded negatively to the spread of the coronavirus.“You’ve got a lower benchmark, a lower revenue guarantee, so you’ll have less coverage than you would have otherwise,” says Jim Mintert, director of the Center for Commercial Agriculture at Purdue University. “From a farmer’s perspective, it’s a huge downer that the market collapsed at the end of February rather than early March.”Depending on the volatility of some factors included in the price guarantee calculations, lower guarantees could lead to lower premiums.

Students will have two performance stops: one at Bluebonnet Circle and the other at Foster Park, said Clint Bond, communications director for FWISD.The Arlington Heights Yellow Jacket Band will be starting their journey from Monnig Middle School. They will meet up with the Panthers at the Trinity Commons Shopping Center at Hulen Street and Bellaire Drive around noon, Bond said.Once the two bands meet up at the Trinity Commons Shopping Center, “that’s where they will have their drumline battle,” Bond said.The battle of the bands is meant to be good-spirited and is all “designed to build excitement and generate support for both great music programs,” according to a district press release.The event began seven years ago as a way to raise money for Paschal’s annual band trip as well as other events throughout the year, Bond said.“The school district provides money for a lot of stuff, but the bands want to do additional things so they raise that money on their own,” Bond said.The students have solicited pledges for each kilometer of the march from their friends, family, and local businesses, Bond said.The 10-kilometer distance is a long one, but Bond said the students and parents are passionate about the event and are willing to march in the heat for the sake of the band programs.The event could always use more volunteers, according to the Paschal band website.
