An existing summer house on a steep continues slope was the starting point for this project. The old house sat in the middle of the property leaving only unusable narrow and highly sloping ground around it. A main issue was therefore to regain the property and to create flat areas with good sun conditions for outdoor activities. We placed the building on the northern property boarder leaving most of the property unexploited facing south. The biggest part of the building is dug into the slope, creating a large horizontal platform in ground level. Half of this platform is taken up by the upper floor of the building; the other half remains an open outdoor terrace in direct connection to the kitchen inside. Next to the kitchen is the living area, which, from its elevated position, faces the water view as well as the upper half of two large oak trees. The studio, or rather a place for inspiration and creation of precious art for this Italian painter and his Swedish wife, makes an abrupt change to its traditional Swedish pitched roof neighbours. The building glitters as a golden shrine penetrated with large black windows as it sits in the rocky slope in between sculptural pine trees.Project gallerySee allShow lessAlphabet CityArticlesInventare la Natura Urbana CompetitionArticles Share Photographs Year:  Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/44452/casa-barone-widjedal-racki-bergerhoff Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeWidjedal Racki BergerhoffOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIngaröHousesRefurbishmentSwedenPublished on December 28, 2009Cite: “Casa Barone / Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff” 28 Dec 2009.

50 African states meet in Beijing

first_imgForum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, July 19.A two-day meeting on July 19-20 in Beijing was the focus of international attention as ministers from 50 African states held discussions with officials of the People’s Republic of China. The Forum on China-Africa Cooperation also attracted the heads of state of six of these countries: South Africa, Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Djibouti and Niger. Also attending was United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.FOCAC was formed in 2000. Its existence has fostered growing trade and state-to-state relations between the African continent and China.In the concluding news conference on July 21, Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Yang Jiechi noted, “We are pleased with the results of our cooperation since we launched this forum. African countries have registered tremendous growth in infrastructural development.” (The New Times [Rwanda], July 22)Yang went on to say, “We are committed to open more and more prospective ways of strengthening our mutual cooperation with Africa.” During the meeting a “Beijing Declaration” and “Beijing Action Plan (2013-2015)” were adopted.Also at the concluding press conference, South African Minister of Foreign Affairs Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said that the meeting built on the already strong foundation enhancing sustainable development in Africa. “Let us continue to act in the spirit of mutual trust and sincerity to make our partnership stronger,” said Nkoana-Mashabane.Emphasizing the continental approach to Africa-China relations, Nkoana-Mashabane pointed out that South Africa will not pursue its own separate agenda in regard to relations with Beijing. “It will be based on the aspirations of the African agenda and leadership.”Now co-chair of the FOCAC, South Africa will host the next summit in Johannesburg in 2015. Egypt just ended its co-chairpersonship at the meetingOn July 19, the Chinese government pledged to extend another $20 billion in concessional loans — government-to-government loans at low interest — to various African states over the next three years. These loans will assist in developing infrastructure, agricultural development, manufacturing and the growth of small – and medium-size enterprises.Growth in relations since 2000There has been tremendous involvement in Africa by China over the last several years. In 2011 trade between the continent and China reached $166.3 billion, with exports from Africa to China totaling $93 billion.Zambia’s Daily Mail newspaper, in a guest article by Chen Deming, China’s minister of commerce and honorary co-chair of the Chinese Follow-up Committee of FOCAC, provided a glimpse of some of the joint Africa-China projects begun over the last few years. The article points out that between 2009 and 2011, total trade volume grew by 83 percent.According to Chen, “In Malawi, a landlocked African country, rows of cotton cultivated by local farmers with instruction from Chinese experts are budding; in Ethiopia, a shoe factory, which was built with investment from the China-Africa Development Fund, is teeming with local workers; in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a hydropower station, financed by credit from China, has just been inaugurated.” (July 23)In 2009, when the world capitalist economic crisis was causing retractions throughout North America and Europe, the fourth FOCAC meeting announced eight new measures that advanced concrete cooperation between the two regions. These included development assistance, credit and financial support, technical training and promotion of trade. Products from China are gaining wider distribution in Africa, and goods produced on the continent are being made available to Chinese consumers.In reference to direct investment, China’s involvement stood at $14.7 billion by the end of 2011, a 60 percent increase over a period of just two years. Investment projects are taking place in various sectors of the African economy, including energy, mining, construction and manufacturing, in addition to greater collaboration in the fields of finance, aviation, agriculture and tourism.This escalation in economic investments has involved more than 2,000 Chinese firms. In regard to project contracting, the African continent is now China’s second-largest international market.The inflow of Chinese capital assistance has brought about an improvement in Africa’s infrastructural development. Social improvement projects have created new schools, water and clean energy projects, and the education of more than 20,000 people in numerous occupational fields over a three-year period. The Daily Mail article stressed, “These programs, tailor-made to meet the needs of African countries, focus on enhancing the welfare of the local people.”The same article states that the China-Africa projects “are promptly implemented without any political strings attached, contributing to the realization of the millennium development goals (MDGS) in Africa. They are testimony to the friendship between Chinese and African people. … China and Africa are spotting new and greater opportunities in our economic co-operation.”During the opening ceremony of the FOCAC meeting on July 19, Chinese President Hu Jintao said, “China will staunchly support African countries in upholding peace and stability and seeking strength through unity. China will play a positive and constructive role in African affairs.” (Xinhua, July 19)When referring to the character of cooperation between Beijing and the continent, the Chinese president said, “Both sides should oppose the practices of the big bullying the small, the strong domineering over the weak, and the rich oppressing the poor. We should step up consultation and coordination and accommodate each other’s concerns and work together to meet global challenges on climate change, food security and sustainable development.”Mutual cooperation,not colonialismThe increasing role of China in African development has drawn the ire of U.S. imperialism, which has sought to denigrate these projects as a new form of colonialism. This seems ironic considering the historic and contemporary role of the U.S. and Western Europe in the overall underdevelopment of Africa.The legacy of slavery, colonialism and neocolonialism has rendered Africa and its people to a state of poverty and political instability. In all efforts aimed at African liberation and sovereignty, the imperialist states have always come down on the wrong side of history.The People’s Daily Online refuted the imperialist view on Africa-China relations, pointing out that “Africa’s exports of crude oil, minerals, steel and agricultural products have played an active role in lifting the Chinese people’s livelihood. Meanwhile, the continent also serves as an indispensable market with great potential for Chinese products.” (July 18)The same article goes on to report, “Beijing is focused on helping build the continent’s productive capacity by improving its infrastructure and boosting the manufacturing sector, rather than involving the so-called ‘resource-grabbing practice.’ China also provides Africa with much-needed products and technologies, and a vast market for its commodities.”The article also points to the “loans made by the Export-Import Bank of China as an example. Most of the 500 projects it has financed are designed to support local infrastructure construction, including water treatment plants, schools and irrigation systems.”Even though the capitalist governments are attempting to discourage ever-growing relations between China and Africa, the alternative for the continent’s governments and peoples are clear. The U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) drone attacks in Somalia, the overthrow of the Libyan government in 2011 and the failure to initiate effective assistance programs for the continent have illustrated to the world that imperialism has nothing positive to offer the majority of the world’s working and poor people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Existing home sales fall for the first time in 5 months

first_imgMessage* But there are some economists who question how much longer the housing market’s record year can continue. They argue that lower-income households are being left behind as lenders tighten their criteria for borrowers and job loss related to the pandemic continues.There are also signs that buyer demand is waning. NAR’s index tracking pending homes sales, which is seen as a leading indicator for future sales of existing homes, has declined for the past two months.Yun acknowledged that rising prices as a result of the past year’s surge in demand has pushed homeownership out of reach for some buyers, particularly first-time buyers who can’t rely on the sale of a previous home to finance a down payment.But, citing the $892 billion stimulus package Congress passed Monday, distribution of the vaccine and “very strong demand for homeownership,” Yun maintained that “robust growth is forthcoming for 2021.”Contact Erin Hudson Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsHousing MarketResidential Real Estate Full Name*center_img Email Address* Share via Shortlink There were 6.69 million homes sold in November, seasonally adjusted, a 2.5 percent drop from 6.85 million in October, according to NAR. (iStock)Homebuyers took a step back last month, as the number of homes on the market reached a new low.There were 6.69 million homes sold in November, seasonally adjusted, a 2.5 percent drop from 6.85 million in October, according to the National Association of Realtors’ monthly report.Every region saw a decline or flat sales figures last month compared to October — though the number of sales are still up significantly year over year. Nationwide, November’s sales were up nearly 26 percent from a year ago.Inventory also continued to tighten, hitting a record low for the second consecutive month. Total housing inventory was 1.28 million units, down 9.9 percent from October’s record low of 1.42 million. November’s inventory is down 22 percent from a year ago, when there were 1.64 million units on the market. At the current sales pace, last month’s inventory will be sold in 2.3 months.Despite the low supply, prices slipped with the wane in demand from buyers. The median sales price was $310,800 in November, down from $313,000 in October. But the price was up about 15 percent compared to the median of $271,300 a year earlier.Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said November’s report was “a marginal step back,” and maintained his view that the housing market would continue to perform well into 2021.“Sales for all of 2020 are already on pace to surpass last year’s levels,” he said in a statement.Read moreU.S. home sales rose again as inventory hits all-time lowThe mirage of low interest ratesSingle-family housing starts now at 2007 bubble levellast_img read more

Two Teaching Scholarships Are Now Open For Applications

first_imgStaff ReportTheStatehouseFIle.comINDIANAPOLIS—Two scholarships for teachers are now open for applications, the Indiana Commission for Higher Education announced Wednesday.The scholarships, the Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities and the Student Teaching Stipend for High Need Fields, are open for student teachers to apply for through Jan. 31.The Earline S. Rogers Student Teaching Stipend for Minorities are for minority teachers who will participate in student teaching or a school administration internship as part of their degree requirements. The Student Teaching Stipend for High-Need Fields is available to students planning to teach in special education or math at either the middle or high school level. Eligible students can receive up to $4,000 per stipend, or $8,000 if awarded both.Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers said that these scholarships are being used to help college students gain experience from student teaching opportunities.“Because student teaching is critical to equipping future teachers with the tools needed for success, we hope that these stipends can help alleviate some of the costs of college,” Lubbers said in a news release.Braylen Porter was awarded both scholarships during her tenure as a sixth grade math teacher at Westlane Middle School in Indianapolis. Porter said that she advises current students to “explore their options and make sure they have a plan to be able to afford college.”“There are many financial aid opportunities out there but you have to put in the work to find them,” said Porter.For instructions on how to apply, visit learnmoreindiana.org/futureteacher.TheStatehouseFile.com is a news website powered by Franklin College journalists.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Josh Homme Apologizes Again For Kicking Photographer: “I Was A Total Dick”

first_imgOn Saturday night, Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age made news after he intentionally kicked the camera of Shutterstock photographer, Chelsea Lauren, causing the to hit her in the face—Lauren was hospitalized for injuries. During the performance, Homme also caused a security guard in the pit to go to the medic after kicking him in the back of the head, cut his own face with a knife, yelled “Fuck Muse” to the crowd, and called the audience “retards.”  In the day since, the incident has caused an uproar.QOTSA’s Josh Homme Kicks Female Photographer, Slices Open Own Face At Christmas ConcertOn Sunday, Josh Homme issued a brief written apology via the Queens of the Stone Age Twitter. He justified his behavior because he was “lost in performance,” apologizing to Lauren and noting he would “never cause intentional harm to anyone working at or attending one of our shows.” However, many fans and industry folks found the apology lacking, particularly because of its short and impersonal tone and because man viewed its opening line regarding being “lost in performance” as an excuse.Today, Josh Homme issued yet another apology, this time in the form of a video blog. In the video, Homme admits that he “was a total dick” after noting “I don’t have any excuse or reason to justify what I did.” During the apology, Homme directly apologizes to Lauren as well as to his bandmates, parents, wife, brother, and kids, explaining, “I don’t want them to ever be ashamed or embarrassed about being around me or knowing me.”On Sunday, Lauren told the press that though she initially was not considering pressing charges, she had been convinced to file a police report on Monday. Homme’s tone is reflective, closing the video with, “I’m gonna have to figure out some stuff,” before addressing Lauren for a final time, “I understand you have to do whatever you have to do.” pic.twitter.com/LUdxsTQE6P— QOTSA (@qotsa) December 11, 2017last_img read more
