The strategy aimed to differentiate private to social places, a smaller spatial scale and the presence of the walls capture visuals; and a more permeable social space characterized by large beams that support the roof and the wall of the main façade, hanging over and diluting the limits, large aluminum frames open the space to the family yard. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe proposal optimizes the relationship between the geometry of the lot, its landscape, the programmatic requirements of housing and our spatial intentions.

Mass outpouring for Chávez’s gov’t in Venezuela

first_imgVenezuelans demonstrate for Chávez in Caracas, Jan. 10.Jan. 10 — The people of Venezuela poured into the streets by the hundreds of thousands in the country’s four major cities today to defend recently re-elected President Hugo Chávez and his government.Because Chávez is still under treatment for cancer in Havana, Cuba, he was unable to participate in the scheduled inaugural ceremony. Anti-Chávez forces in Venezuela — mainly from the wealthy oligarchy — have tried to provoke a constitutional crisis using the president’s inability to appear as a pretext. The Supreme Court, however, ruled a day earlier that based on Paragraph 231 of the Constitution the inauguration could be postponed to a later date.Minister for communication and information, Ernesto Villegas, warned the demonstrators in Caracas about these sectors of the population — “a minority who refuse” to accept the decision of the Supreme Court and charged that these are the same forces that led the coup against the government in April 2002. A mass uprising at that time smashed the rightist coup and pushed the Bolivarian revolution forward. (aporrea.org, Jan. 10)Vice President Nicolás Maduro, speaking to the crowd outside the presidential palace, led thousands of people in an oath of absolute loyalty to the president. Before Chávez had left to go to Cuba for his operation in December, he named Maduro as the person to take responsibility for governing in his absence. The swearing in ceremony has been indefinitely postponed.Among those in Caracas to show support for the Bolivarian revolution were heads of state and government from the region, including Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega, Bolivia’s Evo Morales and Uruguay’s José Mujica, all of whom praised Chávez’s contributions. Most governments in the region have expressed support for Chávez and for his government’s continuance. From outside Latin America, head of state Mahmoud Ahmedinejad of Iran was in Caracas today in solidarity.Chávez won more than 54 percent of the popular vote on Oct. 7, with the second-place candidate, rightist Henrique Capriles, getting only 43 percent. In local and regional elections on Dec. 16, Chávez’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) won 20 of the 23 governor positions. Two-thirds of the National Assembly are Chávez supporters, both from the PSUV and from other parties.PCV backs Chávez, attacks ‘coup makers’One of the parties that is not part of the PSUV but still supports Chávez and the revolutionary process is the Communist Party of Venezuela (PCV).  In a Jan. 10 article, Carolus Wimmer of the political bureau of the PCV wrote:“The pro-imperialist rightwing is looking for legalistic subterfuges to twist the sovereign will of the people and attack President Chávez. For the PCV there is no doubt that the new presidential term of President Hugo Chávez, which is to last six years, begins today, Jan. 10. …“President Chávez has been re-elected by a majority of voters, which is the embodiment of popular sovereignty constitutionally established in Article 5, which literally states that ‘sovereignty resides in the people and is not transferable.’ Thus both in fact and in point of law the will of the people is clearly expressed that their president is and will continue to be Hugo Chávez.”Wimmer noted that while speaking softly, U.S. imperialism was provoking the Venezuelan pro-coup elements to aggressively attack the Bolivarian government. He insisted that “revolutionary and anti-imperialist forces must respond forcefully and with organization to defend the popular will expressed on Oct. 7. We also call upon the revolutionary forces of the continent to express their solidarity in various ways with President Chávez and the Bolivarian process.”Demonstrations already took place today in Honduras, among other countries, where people from the Popular Movement gathered in solidarity with Chávez and Bolivarian Venezuela.In the United States, the International Action Center, the Alberto Lovera Bolivarian Circle, the Alliance for Global Justice, HondurasUSAResistencia, Cuba Solidarity New York, the Latin America Solidarity Coalition, the July 26th Coalition, the Nicaragua Network, the May 1st Coalition and others have called on “the progressive, anti-war and solidarity movements to come out in solidarity with the revolutionary process in Venezuela and participate in National Days of Action from Tuesday, Jan. 22, thru Thursday, Jan. 31.” Actions have already been set in New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Detroit, Boston and Tucson, Ariz.

Seattle teachers reach agreement, suspend strike

first_imgSeattle teachers and staff suspended their seven-day strike against the Seattle School District on Sept. 15. The strike, with an amazing amount of activity, greatly increased the bonds of solidarity between the teachers and the community, especially with parents and students.After a tentative agreement was reached between the Seattle Education Association and the Seattle School District on Sept. 15, SEA’s Representative Assembly voted to suspend the strike. Teachers and staff returned to work on Sept. 16, and schools opened the next day. The SEA membership approved a three-year contract, with a big ratification turnout from the union’s 5,000 members on Sept. 20.Parents and supporters sang at a rally outside the hall where the vote took place. They were giving support to the educators whichever way they voted.Given all the cutbacks and attacks on public education that had taken place, the teachers were demanding better conditions for the students, while insisting on fairness for themselves. The teachers were fed up with overwork and being disrespected by administrators, politicians and anti-public-education “philanthropists.”A very inclusive 40-member bargaining team negotiated throughout the summer. The SEA called for a pay increase for educators, since their tiny salary increases had been eaten up by higher medical costs in the last contract. They also wanted more help for support staff. Teachers opposed the short 15-minute recesses for students and a longer school day. They wanted “race and equity teams” in the schools to combat systemic racism.Community, labor support keyPicketing teachers were highly visible throughout the strike, with dozens demonstrating and chanting at each of the city’s 97 public schools. They were supported by parents’ groups, such as Soup for Teachers, which brought food and support to the picket lines. While educators wearing red shirts were all around the city, it appeared that school district and school board representatives were in “bunker mode.”On Sept. 14, hundreds of teachers held a mass picket line at Franklin High School. About 100 teachers marched five-and-a-half miles from Chief Sealth International High School to school district headquarters. There were other convergence actions across the city.Also that day, the Seattle City Council, feeling the pressure, voted unanimously to support the strike. Labor unions from across the country sent support messages to the strikers. It was then that the school district moved to settle with the SEA, making some concessions.Some 800 parents and young students marched on John Stanford District Headquarters on Sept. 15 to support the teachers’ demands. After many parents made “mic check” teacher-support statements, the tentative agreement was announced.While there were many gains in teacher and community solidarity, here are some of the settlement’s concrete results: The SEA won a guaranteed 30-minute recess for students; a 4.8 percent cost-of-living increase in the first two years, a 5 percent pay increase over two years, with a 4.5 percent increase in the third year. The school day will be lengthened by 20 minutes. The SEA website says the teachers will be compensated for additional time and that more staff will be added to help the educators and students.The SEA forced the district to uncouple student test scores from teacher evaluations. “Race and equity” teams will be set up to deal with racial disparities in education in 30 schools; this is a gain, but it is not sufficient.The teachers’ struggle can be built on. Seattle Educators Association President Jonathan Knapp said they followed the lessons of the 2012 Chicago teachers’ strike in unifying with the community. One advance was an alliance with at least three new parent groups. Black Lives Matter and NAACP activists strongly supported the strike.This strike also grew out of a wave of dozens of one-day strikes by teachers across Washington state during the spring. These walkouts opposed the state Legislature, which has refused to allocate necessary funding for basic education for all students. The struggle for a decent education will continue because youth are too precious to be sent to prison or in other ways abused by the capitalist class.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

CoreLogic: Student Loans Not Depressing Home Ownership

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago July 22, 2014 1,036 Views One of the pet reasons for explaining the lack of demand for houses among millennials is the presence of ever-escalating student loan debts. The thinking goes that college graduates are so mired in debt that they either cannot afford to buy or are too afraid to run up more debt, and so they stay living with their parents or find cheap places to rent.However, Mark Fleming, chief economist atCoreLogic, isn’t buying it.Citing a recent panel discussion at the Urban Institute on “Quantifying the Impact of Student Loan Debt on Homeownership,”  and recently published reports by the Brookings Institute and Jeffrey Thompson, economist at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Fleming draws the conclusion that  while student loan debt undoubtedly affects financial decisions for those post-college, there is zero empirical evidence to back up the claim that these debts are keeping young people from buying their first homes.For one thing, Fleming says, the monthly payback amount anyone has to spend on a student loan is based on a percentage of income. This percentage has remained virtually unchanged since the mid-1990s, but then, so have earnings—and members of Generation X didn’t shy away from buying houses just because of these obligations.Student loan debt is at the $1 trillion mark, and there are more outstanding loans than ever. But Fleming says these facts alone do not show that student loan debt is a bigger burden for millennials, much less one that will prevent homeownership.”Going to college still increases one’s earning potential,” Fleming said. “For those who had to finance college with loans, the burden of repayment relative to income remains the same today as in the 1990s.”This, he says, begs the question: If young people in the 1990s found a way to buy a home while coping with student loan debt, then “why wouldn’t young people today, with the same relative burden, be able to do the same?”One answer may be the increasing number of young people who do not finish college or take much longer than four years to get through it.In the past few years, reports by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center show that more students are taking six or more years to get through college these days, though the reasons why are not discussed. What’s important about this factor, Fleming says, is that the likelihood of homeownership drops among those who do not complete their education.”Accumulating the debt, but not earning the degree, results in the burden without any benefit,” he said. “Research still shows that, on average, getting a college degree results in higher earnings.”Beyond the basic message of “stay in school,” Fleming says it’s up to colleges to be more proactive in quelling a loan crisis that could lead to an entire section of Americans being unable to afford a home. “The post-secondary educational system and financing policies for a college education need to carefully consider, and potentially attempt to prevent, the burden of college debt without the benefit of a degree,” he said.  Print This Post CoreLogic: Student Loans Not Depressing Home Ownership The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.

There is no discussion in the press release as to how the Council happened to zero in on these two names.The BCI stated that they would be liable to be face disciplinary action.The press release made a categorical statement that they “indulged in the practice of illegal advertisement”.When LiveLaw reached out to Suhasini Sen, who was completely caught unawares by the BCI Press Release, she said that she had no association with the website in question.  “I have no part whatsoever in creating this website and have absolutely nothing to do with it. I was neither informed nor was my consent taken by whoever made this website. I would never do something like this. The information about me and the photograph placed on the website are available in the public domain in connection with a scholarship for further studies that I had received in 2012. I haven’t yet received a show cause notice from the BCI, but I will reply to it as soon I receive it”, she said.Slamming the BCI for selectively naming her out of several others who happened to be listed in the site, Senior Advocate Gopal Sankaranarayanan  said- “There is no basis that is apparent as to how the Bar Council concluded that Ms. Suhasini Sen had anything to do with the website in question, and why her name was singled out from among the 24 other names mentioned on that page”.Sankaranarayanan also called out the BCI for publicizing highly defamatory remarks against a junior member even before the issuance of a formal show-cause notice and an enquiry process. “A cursory examination would show that the website is registered to a specific mobile number and address, which is in no way linked to Suhasini. It appears that a motivated complaint has been acted upon by the Bar Council without any evidence or basic principles of natural justice and they have taken the unusual step of inserting it in a press release, thereby publicly maligning her. The normal procedure is to issue a private show cause notice and elicit a response.”Rahul Trivedi was not available for comments, though LiveLaw tried to reach him.Soon after these allegations came to the fore, questions have been asked about the BCI’s jurisdiction to initiate such proceedings in the first place, since the Advocates Act 1961, under which it is established, empowers State Bar Councils to look into acts of misconduct as the original authority.Clarifying the same, Advocate Mihira Sood told LiveLaw that the action of BCI appears to be without jurisdiction. She said:- “Sections 6 and 7 of the Advocates Act are clear that cases of alleged misconduct by any advocate are to be adjudged by the concerned State Bar Council. The BCI has jurisdiction only when a case is referred to it by the State Bar Council, or other exceptional circumstances, such as where the advocate is no longer on the rolls of any State Bar. The press release is clear that the matter is being taken up without any such referral or exceptional circumstance, and is therefore, prima facie, without jurisdiction.”She added that the BCI’s action was a clear violation of the principles of natural justice.”Discussing a disciplinary matter in a press release is extremely inappropriate. Further, to name lawyers in this manner, with no evidence and no opportunity of defense given before destroying her reputation is not at all in keeping with due process, and this practice must be condemned”.In the press release, the BCI took serious objection to the fact that names of hundreds of advocates having “roaring practice” are left out from the categories listed in the site.”The sinister game of these two Advocates raises serious doubt on their conduct when they name only five Advocates as “Good Junior Advocates” and only 10 Senior Advocates in their so-called category 2…. All this has been done deliberately and prima facie, it is in clear violation of Rules of Bar Council of India”, the BCI said.It was further stated :”An advocate under the Rules of the BCI cannot mention/display anything except his/her name, address, details of his enrolment, professional and academic qualifications, name of State Bar Council where he/she is enrolled, name of Bar Association of which he/she is a member, and areas of his/her practice. However this website operated by the above noted Advocates has been attempting to highlight a few Advocates of Supreme Court and Delhi High Court naming them as ‘Top Lawyers of Supreme Court of India’ in garb and with the real intention of actually highlighting and promoting themselves i.e. so called ‘Good Junior Advocates’ as maximum of these few Senior Advocates do not require highlighting, or promotion of their work which speaks for itself.”Some of the names published on the website include that of noted and reputed lawyers such as Mr. Fali S. Nariman, Mr. KK Venugopal, Mr. Soli Sorabji, Mr. K Parasaran, Mr. Harish N Salve, Mr. Tulsi, Mr. Mukul Rohatgi, Mr. Sundaram, Mr. Gopal Subramanium etc.”This is just one of such many websites”, added the BCI while authorizing its Chairman, Manan Kumar Mishra, to write to the judges of the Supreme Court on the issue, “since it is tarnishing the image of the judiciary and the judges also.”Click here to read BCI’s press releaseSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
