A home inspired by its location, perched on a rising monolithic headland of sandstone and shale, jutting out into the Pacific Ocean just north of Sydney in the beachside suburb of Avalon. Designed to respond to this dramatic environment with a rustic rugged exterior and a raw but highly crafted interior.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonSave this picture!Plan SiteSave this picture!© Michael NicholsonBriefed by a couple of journalist empty nesters to ‘do the site justice’, ‘be part of nature’ and to ‘last 100 years’. A rigorous design process ensued, before a topographical response produced a series of steeped, staggered and linked blocks or pavilions set carefully amongst the boulders and twisted tea trees strewn over the headland.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonConstrained by 3 massive Norfolk pines, flame zone bushland, a precipitous cliff edge and arduous council assessment, the site enjoys dramatic long distance southern ocean and coastline views as well as immediate near vertical views over the cliff edge to surfers and dolphins at Avalon Beach.Save this picture!SectionHighly visible from the popular public beach, the house replaces a rendered pink Tuscan style villa with a modest sized 350m2 house rooted in the hillside on 3 tectonic platforms enclosing a sun drenched and wind sheltered entry courtyard to the North, while overlooking the ocean and beach to the South and WestSave this picture!© Michael NicholsonThe scale, form and material pallet all seek to work with the terrain; cantilever terraces and balconies, exposed hoods and deep recessed openings ensure light and shade enhance the modulated facades. The five attached pavilions are linked by a double cross over axis, directing the entry and vertical movement pattern of the house and aligning with the two principal aspects the house enjoys – the long distance southern coastal view and immediate western beach view.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonSave this picture!© Michael NicholsonVertically, the plan is arranged into three functional areas; the top floor private master suite, the ground floor garden level comprising the kitchen, dining, living and studies, and the lower cave like sheltered guest rooms tucked into and between the rocks.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonAccess is via a battle axe drive through a Corten and copper gatehouse into a sheltered garden court dominated by a giant Norfolk pine tree. A vaulted entry canopy projects into the courtyard, appearing to float inside while supported externally by a natural sandstone column found on the site. The house’s cliff-top aspect is completely concealed until the front door is opened revealing a double height space aligned with the coastal headlands, stepping down into the main living room.   Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonThe tectonic expression of the Ken Murtagh engineered concrete skeleton inside and out provides large openings protected from sun and rain while reflecting the horizontal layering of the cliffs below. The living room has fully retractable doors to two sides allowing a panoramic corner view and access to the terraces, made possible by a slender load defying brass clad post.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonThe buildings materiality is raw as the brief required.  Constructed both inside and outside from 500×40 bricks by S. Anselmo. Smoky burnt grey/black bricks externally blend with the weathered sandstone surrounds. White bricks internally create an ever changing play of patterns and light as the sun moves around the building. Stone floors throughout reinforce the earthy materiality of the spaces while vaulted timber ceilings rise to northern rooflights flooding south facing rooms with light and sun. Fine brass railings mellow in the sea air, and allow views through to the ocean and surrounding heathland. All timber is FSC Certified Mailkaro including the double glazed Praarhammer fabricated Bal 40 windows and doors.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonCentral to the house is a finely crafted floating concrete stair connecting the 3 levels featuring a brass sculptured screen by Caroline Casey who was also responsible for all the highly resolved and detailed joinery and furnishings throughout the house.Save this picture!© Michael NicholsonProject gallerySee allShow lessLookout da Cova / ARROKABE ArquitectosSelected ProjectsParty and Public Service Center of Yuanheguan Village / LUO studioSelected Projects Share “COPY” Houses CopyAbout this officeCasey Brown ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAvalon BeachOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on March 04, 2020Cite: “Bangalley House / Casey Brown Architecture” 04 Mar 2020.

Animal charity boss goes undercover for Channel 4

first_img Howard Lake | 18 July 2011 | News Animal charity boss goes undercover for Channel 4 Tagged with: Management TV The Chief Executive of animal welfare organisation The Blue Cross will appear in tomorrow night’s Channel 4 programme ‘Undercover Boss’, the first time the TV series has featured a charity boss. Now in its third series, Undercover Boss presents six company leaders who leave the comfort of their offices “to get their hands dirty in an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of the organisation they lead”.Kim Hamilton, The Blue Cross CEO, poses as a volunteer at the charity’s adoption centres and hospitals, working incognito alongside kennel workers and vet nurses to care for sick and homeless animals. Over seven days she takes on the roles of animal welfare assistant, vet nurse, hospital receptionist, ambulance driver and educational speaker.Hamilton said: “When I was approached by the producers of Undercover Boss, I was instantly intrigued by the idea of working amongst our staff and volunteers on the ground. I wanted to find the unsung heroes of the organisation, ask what issues are important to them, explore their successes and frustrations, and look at how effective we are at what we do.”Of her experience she commented: “In my time as a city banker and chief executive, I’ve often endured tough working days, long hours and impossible decisions, but I’ve never experienced such physical and emotional exhaustion as those days undercover at The Blue Cross. I’ve always known that our people are hard working and dedicated, but I had no idea how truly passionate they are for their work and to what lengths they will go to do their bit for animals in need.”‘Undercover Boss’ airs on Tuesday 19 July at 21.00 on Channel 4.www.channel4.com/programmes/undercover-boss/episode-guide/series-3/episode-3  30 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

In a week of actions, the ‘Decolonize Puerto Rico Tribunal’ grows

first_imgAs the current resident of the White House stokes anger by continuing to minimize the growing Puerto Rican death toll from Hurricanes Maria and Irma, organizing grows to put the U.S. on trial for 120 years of colonial crimes in Puerto Rico. The International Tribunal for this purpose convenes at Holyrood Church/Iglesia Santa Cruz in New York City on Oct. 27.A national Decolonize Puerto Rico week of actions supports the aims of the Tribunal through organizing solidarity with Puerto Rican events marking the first anniversary of Hurricane Maria on Sept. 20 and the first Puerto Rican uprising for independence, Grito de Lares, on Sept. 23.A day to defend Puerto Rican public education is scheduled on Sept. 21, with a massive call-in to Puerto Rico’s Secretary of Education Julia Keleher (787) 759-2000 or tweet: @educacionPR, @SecEducacionPR.All are encouraged to support the Tribunal throughout the week beginning Sept. 20, and then continue to the Tribunal on Oct. 27. Supporters are urged to sign and share the Decolonize and Pay Reparations to Puerto Rico Now petition at bit.ly/PRSolidarity.The people of Puerto Rico have struggled for independence since the El Grito de Lares uprising on Sept. 23, 1868 — 150 years ago. The U.S. branded the Puerto Rican people with official citizenship that obscures the actual colonial status of the Borinquen peoples. This distances them from solidarity with the struggling peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean, and divides them from the struggles of the im/migrant communities in the U.S. because on the surface Puerto Ricans “have documents.” Hurricanes Maria and Irma one year ago stripped away this falsehood and opens the way to organized solidarity with the people of Puerto Rico.The conveners of the Tribunal include Rafael Cancel Miranda, a Puerto Rican hero who on March 1, 1954, along with Lolita Lebrón, Irving Flores and Andrés Figueroa Cordero, fired on the U.S. Congress to bring attention to the colonial status of Puerto Rico, which had just been made a U.S. commonwealth; Augusto Zamora, professor of International Law and former lawyer for Nicaragua in the International Court of Justice; Alejandro Torres Rivera, Boricua labor lawyer and president of the Puerto Rico Bar Association 2016-2018; Vieques activist Ismael Guadalupe; Puerto Rican peace and human rights educator, organizer and artist Esperanza Martell; Father Luis Barrios; Déborah Berman Santana, Ph.D.; Iris Colón Dipini, Puerto Rican independence activist, New York City; Call to Action on Puerto Rico/Llamado de Acción por Puerto Rico; Comités de la Resistencia Boricua; Colectivo Se Acabaron las Promesas; Comité Boricua Filadelfia-Camden; and the International Action Center.These conveners are supported by a growing list of endorsers and supporters who are listed on the website: PuertoRicoTribunal.org.

Justice minister urged to speed up proceedings that have kept Basque newspaper closed

first_imgNews SpainEurope – Central Asia November 17, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Justice minister urged to speed up proceedings that have kept Basque newspaper closed SpainEurope – Central Asia to go further Organisation RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive lire en espagnolReporters Without Borders today called on Spanish justice minister Juan Fernando López Aguilar to speed up the judicial proceedings that have kept the Basque-language daily newspaper Egunkaria closed since 20 February 2003, so that it can resume publishing as soon as possible.The press freedom organisation issued its call on the eve of hearings in which the national court in Madrid will consider the appeals of seven Egunkaria journalists against their indictment on charges of being linked with the Basque armed separatist group ETA.“After two and a half years of judicial investigation, no trial has yet been held to establish whether or not any members of this newspaper’s staff really are linked to ETA,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Spanish authorities’ efforts to combat terrorism are legitimate but they not be should used as a pretext for accusing journalists who defend the Basque language and culture of belonging to a terrorist organisation.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We point out that Basque journalists are the most frequent victims of ETA’s campaign of terror against the media, which forces them to work with bodyguards or to leave the Basque country altogether.”The national court will tomorrow begin hearing appeals by Martxelo Otamendi, Inaki Uria, Joan Mari Torrealdai, Txema Auzmendi, Xabier Alegria, Pello Zubiria and Xabier Oleaga, who were charged on 3 December 2004 by lower court judge Juan Del Olmo with creating an “illegal association” and, for some of them, with “membership of a terrorist group” as well. The journalists, who are all free on bail, face prison terms ranging from one to 14 years.The proceedings against Egunkaria have been controversial as well as protracted. Arrested on 20 February 2003, four of the seven journalists claimed they were mistreated while held in custody for five days without being able to talk to lawyers.On 21 July 2003, judge Del Olmo ordered a six-month extension of the “preventive measures” adopted against the Egunkaria group on the grounds that it helped reinforce ETA’s terrorist structures by creating dummy companies. Since then the “measures” have been renewed every six months, preventing the newspaper from going back to work.All of the journalists denied all of the charges and lodged an appeal on 29 December 2004 with the national court, which has so far not issued a ruling.On 15 March of this year, Del Olmo gave orders for the Egunkaria group’s accounts to be frozen and for the company to be liquidated. An Egunkaria support group was created three days later, comprising Basque intellectuals, performing artists and politicians.“Despite examining thousands of documents, questioning more than 20 people, searching their homes and workplaces and ordering telephone taps, the judge has found no evidence of a link between Egunkaria and ETA,” one of the newspaper’s lawyers told Reporters Without Borders. “The charges are based solely on the judge’s assumption, which comes down to ‘suspicion plus suspicion equals proof’,” the lawyer added.Egunkaria was created in 1990. “It is an independent and pluralist daily that has never been an ideological newspaper,” Reporters Without Borders was told by Martxelo Otamendi, its former editor, who faces 8-14 years in prison on a charge of belonging to a terrorist organisation.Otamendi now edits another Basque-language daily that was created with the help of contributions from many Basque Country residents in June 2003, four months after Egunkaria’s forced closure. Called Berria, it has a circulation of 20,000.More than 60 members of the Spanish parliament called on the government on 20 October to drop the entire case against Egunkaria.

She said that Aurora police officers were on scene within four minutes “and were fired upon immediately.”SWAT teams entered the 29,000 square foot warehouse to locate Martin, Ziman said. When they found him, they engaged him in gunfire, ultimately killing him.Martin’s motive remains unclear.People who escaped the building when the shooting began described the chaos inside.John Probst, a Henry Pratt employee who escaped, described to ABC Chicago affiliate WLS-TV seeing a man holding a pistol equipped with a laser sight, shooting indiscriminately. Probst told WLS he recognized the shooter as a coworker, though authorities have not confirmed whether Martin was employed there.There would have been approximately 30 people in the building at the time of the shooting, Probst said.Another witness who escaped the building with Probst and later ended up hiding out in a nearby home, described the chaos and confusion inside, and his split-second decision to flee.“We got out of the back door as soon as we heard shots,” Howard Sebby told ABC News. “We saw one guy get shot, he was a co-worker, he was shot in the arm and back, I think they took him to the hospital.”Sebby also said he saw the shooter “running,” though it was unclear where the gunman may have been going.Little information about Martin was immediately available.EMERGENCY UPDATE | 3 p.m. THE SHOOTER HAS BEEN APPREHENDED!
