It is located from east to west and is reached by a public road that runs through the entire site in the lakeshore area. Because of its natural condition, we decided to work on the slope by different levels in order to segment its uses. It was decided to deploy the house in the highest part of the land in order to isolate it from the edge, generate privacy and seek for spectacular views towards the lake among the large trees that surround it.Save this picture!Frontal ElevationIn order to generate living spaces on the slope, it was necessary to perform a large concrete retaining wall. This sets the basis of Maldonado House Project, which is located in a simple place in the shape of a boomerang. This form allows welcoming and integrating spaces. Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva ArquitectosThe support base of the house has all the service areas, warehouses, and parking lots and at the same time is a multipurpose space for various activities. The importance of this level lies in being the support of all the areas of the house and forming part of the access area as well. Therefore, we designed a large central scale, which invites you to come and tour the façade, integrating the different levels.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva ArquitectosThe upper level that settles on the base contains all the common and private areas of the house. The form responds to the development of three sections that join to form a whole.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva ArquitectosThe central place (the access to the house) contains the common areas (living-dining-kitchen-terrace), which allows separating the master bedroom from the other sectors. This space gets all the morning light and projects it onto the bedrooms and corridors that form the central terrace. Thus, the slope is dwelled in a functional and efficient way and respecting its surroundings.Save this picture!Courtesy of Matías Silva ArquitectosProject gallerySee allShow less’TIP-TOP’ Competition Entry / Tomas Ghisellini ArchitettoArticlesNew Crematorium in the Hörnli Cemetary Competition Entry / Josep Ferrando, David Rec…Articles Share “COPY” Projects Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMatías Silva Aldunate ArquitectoOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos LagosMatias Silva ArquitectosChilePublished on December 21, 2012Cite: “Maldonado House / Matías Silva Aldunate Architect” [Casa Maldonado / Matías Silva Arquitectos] 21 Dec 2012.

Politicians: servants of the wealthy

first_imgMumia Abu-JamalSept. 15 — It is impossible to look at the current crop of political presidential aspirants and not be struck by their level of subservience to the wants and needs of the owner class.Like puppies panting in the presence of their masters, the politicians, emboldened by the unconscionable Citizens United decision, are at the feet of the billionaires for scraps to better serve their betters.Now, one billionaire can field a half-dozen pols, and by so doing, can determine not just who runs, but who wins — and what laws will be passed.Why not?  They own them, don’t they?But still, that is not enough. For witness the emergence of New York real estate executive Donald Trump.Trump brags, at every opportunity, of his enormous wealth. By so doing, he intimidates his potential rivals, who are used to bending their knees to such men. But he also represents the distrust of his class, for rather than hiring politicians, he runs himself, to lock in his class dominance.Nor is this solely a Republican affair, for Democrats, who run on emotional appeals to labor unions and working people, once in power lead to the interests of Wall Street — the source of the lion’s share of their donations.Their strategy, of talking labor while pleasing capital, was seen in the destructive NAFTA pact [the North American Free Trade Agreement], which decimated manufacturing jobs in the U.S. by the millions.Bill Clinton hustled NAFTA like a street dealer selling crack, selling dreams that turned to dust.Now, the Clintons return, posing as the saviors of the working class, when their treasured NAFTA ripped away tens of thousands of jobs annually, undermined unions and transferred vast wealth to Wall Street.When Texas businessman and 1992 and 1996 presidential candidate, H. Ross Perot, predicted NAFTA would produce “a giant sucking sound” of lost jobs, the media pundits laughed at him, making him sound like a fool.History proves his words were true.Politicians: servants of capital; promisers of progress; but bringers of disaster.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Brick by brick and wall by wall, we will free Mumia Abu-Jamal

first_imgBy Erica CainesThis lightly edited presentation was given by Erica Caines, with Black Alliance for Peace and Hood Communist editor, at an April 15 press conference to demand the immediate release of Mumia Abu-Jamal.I am a member of the Black Alliance for Peace, and I’m also co-editor of the African revolutionary blog Hood Communists. I’m very honored to speak a bit about Mumia Abu-Jamal and his present influence on this movement era.Mumia once said that prison is a second-by-second assault on the soul, a day-to-day degradation of the self, an oppressive steel-and-brick umbrella that transforms seconds into hours and hours into days. In Mumia’s case, the state of Pennsylvania is deeply invested in ensuring that there will be no more days for him.Instead of adhering to the longtime demands of the people to free Mumia, the state, including Philadelphia’s popular progressive prosecutor [Larry Krasner], has refused to do so.Learning about Mumia’s case, I’ve gotten more opportunities to publicly advocate on behalf of his freedom. This has especially opened my eyes to the delusions of any justice being found within the U.S. justice system. It has been clear since the three-decades fight to remove Mumia from death row was won, that he is being punished for not dying, both then and now. However, despite these realities of the prison system and his unjust trial and sentencing, Mumia’s invaluable voice and clear analysis of our material circumstances as Black people within the U.S. could be heard on Prison Radio or read in one of his many books, like “Have Black Lives Ever Mattered?” Or “Murder, Incorporated” — all produced from behind the prison walls, encouraging, informing and inspiring countless youth who are marching and organizing around a collective demand that our Black lives do, in fact, matter.Mumia does not simply serve as a point of inspiration. Mumia and all political prisoners who are aging away and dying — rest in peace to Chip Fitzgerald — behind prison walls serve as a warning to any of us who refuse to normalize this settler-colonial state that depicts Blackness as innately criminal and Black people as deserving of injustice.So brick by brick and wall by wall, we’re going to free Mumia Abu-Jamal. May we all catch one another in the whirlwind. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Here’s how you can help save bees and other pollinators

first_imgmanfredxy/iStockBY: PHAEDRA SINGELIS, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Bumblebees are some of our most effective pollinators, but more than one-quarter of the species is facing extinction.Bees, butterflies and other pollinators are under threat by habitat loss, pesticides, disease and climate change.Bees sustain our lives in ways we sometimes fail to recognize. They are as an essential part of our food web — from blueberries to pumpkins — and even play a role in growing the cotton used in much of our clothing.European honeybees that farmers bring in to pollinate crops have suffered from colony collapse disorder and parasites. While 15% of the world’s food is pollinated by them, nearly 80% is pollinated by native bees and other wildlife, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Honeybee keepers can rebuild their colonies, but bumblebees and other native species need our help.As our primary pollinators, bees efficiently collect and transport pollen from plant to plant. Butterflies, moths, beetles ants and some birds and bats also help move pollen accidentally but are no match for the efficiency of bees. There are 3,600 species of native bees in the United States and an estimated 20,000 species worldwide, according to the Xerces Society. Currently, only the Rusty Patched bumblebee is listed as endangered. There are simply too many other species to track in order to protect in this way.Here’s how you can help:Avoid pesticidesNeonicotinoids and other systemic pesticides are devastating to bees and butterflies. In Oregon, more than 50,000 bumblebees died after a group of trees were sprayed with the pesticide.These types of systemic chemicals can poison wildlife for years after their use. Avoid using weed killers and other insecticides on your lawn or your garden. Ask your local nursery if they use neonicotinoids and shop at ones that practice organic or integrated pest management. Share plants with like-minded neighbors, or grow plants from untreated seeds. Nature centers, local native plants sales and native nurseries are also good sources of pesticide-free plants.Plant native plantsLike monarchs, which only feed and lay eggs on milkweeds, many bees feed on certain plants that they’ve adapted to over millions of years.Provide food via nectar- and pollen-producing plants with regionally specific species. Aim to have three different plants blooming from early spring through late fall. Different bee species feed at different times, and many can only reach the nectar and pollen from certain types of flowers.Plant diversity supports bee diversity. Many cultivated plants are sterile and produce no pollen or nectar for bees. Like the monarch, many butterfly and moth species lay eggs on specific plants, so include host plants for species native to your area. Even a balcony or small patio with pots of blooming natives will help.To find information about native plants in your area, contact your state native plant society or search by your zip code on the National Wildlife Foundation’s Native plant finder or at the Audobon Society.Provide nesting sitesDon’t be too neat and tidy. Most native bees are solitary — they don’t make hives and rarely ever sting, so you don’t have to worry about inviting them into your yard. About 70% are ground-nesting, so leave some areas of bare soil, especially if you see them emerging from small holes in the ground. Lawns, mulch and pavement reduce the amount of available nesting sites.Cavity nesters make up the other 30%, and they use hollow-stemmed plants and other woody plants to overwinter and lay eggs. Help them by creating brush piles if you have a discreet spot, and don’t clean up your dead perennials and other woody plants until late spring. Insect hotels, which have recently become popular, require careful maintenance to avoid spreading pathogens, so a safer alternative are plant stems that have died and other naturally occurring woody material. Beetles and other insects hide under leaves, so “leaving the leaves” in the fall, is another way to help insects survive winter.Remove InvasivesNon-native plants can become invasive, taking over habitats that support pollinators. Invasives can kill trees and move into forested land, out-competing native species. Non-native plants support very few insects and create food deserts for insects, birds and wildlife. You can find lists of invasive species at the Invasive Plant Atlas of the U.S.Reduce your lawnLawn grass isn’t native and does little to support insects or other wildlife — and it’s frequently the target of harmful chemicals. Gardens with trees, shrubs, native grasses and perennials are a much better for the bees and the environment. Try not to mow early in the spring where seasons change. A recent study in Appleton, Wisconsin, dubbed “No Mow May,” determined that lawns that weren’t mowed that month showed fives times greater bee abundance and three times as many bee species compared with regularly mowed areas.Spread the wordPut up a sign announcing your pollinator habitat. Tell your neighbors and/or ask your homeowners association to participate. Ask your local nursery to stock pesticide-free native plants for pollinators. Stay informed and support local, state and national efforts. Have your town or campus join Bee City USA or take the Pollinator Protection Pledge at the Xerces Society.“Every little bit helps,” said renowned entomologist Doug Tallamy, who has extensively studied relationships among plants and insects.“Our preserves and national parks are not adequate to prevent the predicted loss of species, and we have run out of the space required to make them big enough,” he wrote in his new book, “Nature’s Best Hope.” “If Americans replanted half of their lawns with native plants, shrubs and trees, we would have more wildlife habitat than all the national parks combined.”Plant a square yard of native plants or fill a few pots on your balcony or stoop and you’ll be amazed who shows up.For more information: Xerces SocietyCopyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
