first_img “COPY” Houses Photographs:  Kirk Gittings PhotographyText description provided by the architects. The Flyway View House, designed by the office of Jon Anderson Architecture, rests on a site bordering the 160 acre Rio Grande Nature Center to the south and the Rio Grande River corridor to the West. The wildfowl habitat is on a major migratory flyway hosting snow geese, sand hill cranes and the occasional endangered whooping crane. Designed to maximize views of the bird habitat and to take advantage of solar exposure and passive ventilation, the design hosts simple sustainable materials and the thoughtful use of glass blends the indoor and outdoor living spaces. The major living areas align the Southern exposure and view windows. Overhangs protect these areas from the high summer sun but exploit the low winter sun for passive heat gain. The house sits below the ancient cottonwoods with distant views of the Sandia mountain range to the East, the Rio Grande Bosque to the West and abundant migratory wildfowl to the South.

first_imgJune 6 — For the seventh year in a row, Israeli-owned ships have not been allowed to unload in the Port of Oakland. On June 4, thousands of supporters of the Palestinian struggle conducted six simultaneous picket lines during two work shifts to “Block the Boat.” Members of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 honored the picket lines, refusing to work the ship. ‘Block the Boat’ action at Port of Oakland, June 6.In a tremendous victory of worker and community solidarity, the Israeli ZIM-operated ship was forced to leave the port at 6 p.m. — with all of its cargo still on board. The day of action began when hundreds of demonstrators assembled at 5:00 a.m. to prevent workers from entering the berth where the Israeli-owned ZIM ship had docked. Picketers fanned out to six entrances used by the dock workers. Members of ILWU Local 10 and other union members stood around in groups, refusing to cross the picket line and talking to protesters. Truckers driving through the Port of Oakland sounded their horns in solidarity with the protest. The Israeli ship actually left the harbor before the official start of the second shift in the evening — a strong measure of the success and strength of the Block the Boat action. The solidarity action was organized by the Arab Resource and Organizing Center and supported by many progressive groups in the Bay Area. According to AROC, the blockade of the boat was in direct response to an international call sent out by Palestinian labor unions asking workers around the world to support Palestine by refusing to handle any Israeli goods or cargo. In a June 6 statement issued by AROC, Elias Al-Jelda of the Executive Committee of the Palestine General Federation of Trade Unions in Gaza, stated: “It warms our hearts in the besieged occupied Gaza Strip and the rest of occupied Palestine that our comrades led by AROC, and with the solidarity of our fellow workers in ILWU Local 10, achieved this great #BlockTheBoat victory against ZIM in Oakland. We call upon all dockworkers worldwide to intensify the boycott campaign against ZIM ships and all business profiting from apartheid.” In the statement, President of ILWU Local 10 Trent Willis emphasized: “Workers’ struggle is worldwide. . . . When the workers of the world figure that out and realize that we have to band together to make change, then it’ll be a better world, including for the Palestinian people. Worker power, economic power, is real power — it’s more powerful than those bombs Israel is dropping.” The Oakland Block the Boat protest was part of an international week of actions to prevent the docking and unloading of any ship carrying Israeli goods or owned by Israel. According to the AROC statement, “Oakland and the broader Bay Area have once again achieved a historic Boycott, Divest and Sanctions Movement (BDS) victory for Palestine.” On the East Coast hundreds of people from the #BlockTheBoat coalition held a first-ever pro-Palestine action June 6 at the Port of New York and New Jersey, against a Zim ship docking in Elizabeth, N.J..FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Farm Bureau Shares Priorities, Concerns with Senate Ahead of Farm Bill Debate SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 4, 2012 Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Shares Priorities, Concerns with Senate Ahead of Farm Bill Debate Facebook Twitter American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman says the Senate Agriculture Committee’s proposed 2012 farm bill could move toward the organization’s core principles for rational, acceptable farm policy with a few improvements. He sent a letter to the Senate Monday to outline Farm Bureau’s priorities in – and concerns about – the farm bill expected to come to the floor this week. According to Stallman – Farm Bureau places a priority on several of the committee’s decisions – including using the 23-billion dollars in savings suggested to the Joint Committee on Deficit Reduction last fall; protecting and strengthening the federal crop insurance program; developing a commodity title that attempts to encourage producers to follow market signals and refraining from basing any program on cost of production. But Farm Bureau believes some areas – including the Agriculture Risk Coverage Eligible Acres provisions and payment limits – could benefit from additional policy work.Farm Bureau would like to address the net effect of the Agriculture Risk Coverage Eligible Acres provisions to ensure a true “planted acres” approach and avoid recreating “base acres” issues that have raised equity and planting distortion concerns. The group would also like current payment limits and Adjusted Gross Income provisions in current law re-instituted.Stallman says Farm Bureau supports a single program option for the commodity title that extends to all crops – and believes the safety net should be comprised of a strong crop insurance program, with continuation of the marketing loan program and a catastrophic revenue loss program based on county level losses for each crop. Farm Bureau says this approach can easily be tailored to provide a safety net that meets regional and commodity differences while meeting the established savings target. After analyzing number from the Congressional Budget Office – Farm Bureau now believes it’s possible to provide support at the 80-percent revenue level of coverage for all program crops and five fruits and vegetables rather than a more limited group of crops at a lower revenue level – which they originally proposed.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleSenate Farm Bill Debate Ready to BeginNext articleIndiana corn Condition Improves Andy Eubanklast_img read more

first_img Receive email alerts RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists News February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Two foreign freelance journalists are about to complete a year in captivity. Canadian reporter Amanda Lindhout and Australian photographer Nigel Brennan were taken hostage by an armed group as they were returning to Mogadishu from Afgoye refugee camp, 20 km west of the Somali capital, on 23 August 2008.“We are very worried about these two hostages, given the length of their ordeal and the extreme dangers prevailing in Somalia,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We reiterate our support for their families and we hope they will be released without delay.”At the time of their abduction, Lindhout and Brennan were being accompanied by Abdifatah Mohammed Elmi, a Somali freelance journalist who was their fixer and interpreter, and two Somali drivers, Mahad Isse and Marwali.Elmi and the two drivers were released on the night of 15 January, after being held for 177 days. Elmi said he was separated from Lindhout and Brennan immediately after their capture.A woman claiming to be Lindhout called CTV headquarters in Toronto on 10 June and appealed to the Canadian government to do everything possible to obtain her release. In tears, she said she was being held in appalling conditions.“I’m being kept in a dark, windowless room in chains without any clean drinking water and very little food or no food,” the caller said. “I’ve been very sick for months without any medicine.” A similar call was made to OMNI Television, another Canadian TV station, at the end of July.The kidnappers have been demanding a ransom, the size of which has changed over the months. Rumours have circulated about the hostages but Reporters Without Borders has been unable to confirm any of them. According to one rumour, Lindhout was pregnant and several Somali sources have said in the past two months that she gave birth to a boy.Here is the statement of both families : “Together, the two families continue to work tirelessly to secure Nigel’s and Amanda’s safe release. With little outside support, the families, who have been united as one throughout this horrendous ordeal, continue to do everything and anything to gain the earliest possible release for their loved ones Amanda and Nigel. Our thoughts and all our love are with Amanda and Nigel, today, just as they have been for the past 365 days, and just as they will be until they are safely home with us.In issuing this brief joint statement the families hope that the media will respect their wishes to be left alone during this particularly emotional time.” SomaliaAfrica News to go further News SomaliaAfrica center_img Organisation March 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Somalia RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region Help by sharing this information News August 21, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Anniversary of abduction of Canadian and Australian journalists Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Fuentes transferred to Pasadena City College and the experienced redshirt sophomore has provided some leadership for the Lancers in 2016.On Thursday, Fuentes put her current college on her back as she led the Lancers to a 5-1 victory over the host Huskies. Starting at third base, Fuentes powered a 2-run home run over the left field fence to give PCC a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning. She then scattered six hits over three innings of scoreless relief to shut down ELAC and earn the save for starter and winning pitcher Alyssa Madrid (5-4).The Lancers upped their record to 11-8 overall and remained tied for third place with El Camino on 5-3 conference marks. ELAC dropped to 6-13 and 2-6.Sophomore catcher Holly Riker-Sloan went 2-for-4 including a line RBI single to right in the fifth and letterman first baseman Karen Najera added a RBI double for more insurance in the sixth. Second-year players Derek Blow, the rightfielder, and second baseman Anais Sustayta each added two hits.“Raeleen and Anais really came through with big at bats today, and they are giving our offense a needed boost” said PCC head coach Monica Tantlnger. “Our pitchers both battled and we stranded 10 ELAC runners on base. Raeleen made some big pitches late in the game.”PCC rebounded from a tough 8-0, 5-inning loss to SCC co-leader Cerritos in a game played at Robinson Park.The Lancers will play a non-conference doubleheader on Saturday, Mar. 12 at Victor Valley College.
