These CMU walls orient the spaces to the undisturbed views of Pinnacle Peak, the McDowell Mountains, Four Peaks, and the Superstition Mountains, while controlled openings within the CMU walls capture characteristics of the immediate site and landscape, specific views of the mountains beyond, and the desert sky. Save this picture!A metal clad roof is situated between the CMU walls and inflects to focus specific views based on program. The configuration of Cor-Ten clad metal stud walls aid in editing out the immediate manmade context of the neighboring uninspired houses and assist in focusing views on the landscape and mountains in the distance. Save this picture!In an effort to domesticate the otherwise “raw” spaces, the introduction of both veneered plywood and Level 5 plaster walls are articulated as veneers at specific surfaces of the exposed CMU walls at the interior spaces. The millwork is comprised of Quartersawn Maple and white stone countertops. Save this picture!The garages and entry court are located on the first level. The majority of the project’s program is located on the main level at one elevation due to the clients’ age. Two other bedrooms are located at different elevations, and by means of the section, allow for privacy and a more distinct focus on the specific qualities of views and the desert landscape.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessNew Yorkers Claim Their WaterfrontArticlesPhyllis Lambert Design Montréal GrantArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/67541/mummy-mountain-residence-chen-suchart-studio-llc Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/67541/mummy-mountain-residence-chen-suchart-studio-llc Clipboard Mummy Mountain Residence / Chen + Suchart Studio LLCSave this projectSaveMummy Mountain Residence / Chen + Suchart Studio LLC CopyAbout this officeChen + Suchart Studio LLCOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited StatesPublished on July 07, 2010Cite: “Mummy Mountain Residence / Chen + Suchart Studio LLC” 07 Jul 2010.

Advertisement Melanie May | 17 February 2020 | News Civil Society Media is offering free access to its products for ten people who may struggle to access opportunities for career development in the sector, through a new bursary scheme.Successful applicants to the scheme will be able to choose any three items from Civil Society Media’s portfolio of events, training, and publications, with an estimated value of £500.The deadline for applications is 16 March, and applicants must be of a protected characteristic under the Equality Act and employed by or volunteers as a trustee for a charity. The nine protected characteristics under the Act are: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation. More information, as well as a link to the application form, is available on the Civil Society site.Announcing the scheme on the site, Chief Executive Matthew Nolan said that Civil Society Media was offering the bursaries to help address the issue of under-representation of people with protected characteristics or those from different backgrounds in the sector, which they believe “is partly due to the fact that these people are not always afforded the same training and development opportunities as their counterparts.” 242 total views, 2 views today
U.S. intelligence agencies and law enforcement departments recently announced that the Black Lives Matter movement was under surveillance for possible “terrorist” activity coinciding with the 14th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.A Sept. 14 BBC article noted, “Conservative American politicians and television pundits have increased their attacks on the Black Lives Matter movement. In the aftermath of the killing of police officers, [it] has been mentioned as a contributing factor.”However, the BLM movement is not a centralized organization. There is an “official website,” but many groups and demonstrators utilize the name. Many white activists have joined BLM demonstrations, although some actions are restricted to African Americans.The state is attempting to criminalize the youth-directed efforts aiming at seeking justice for African-American victims of racist police and vigilante violence. The BLM movement is a legitimate and rational response to seemingly intensifying state terror. The history of African Americans and other oppressed nations in North America and worldwide confirms the strategies aimed at gaining national liberation. These movements uphold the right to self-determination and use tactics including civil disobedience and mass rebellion.Since Trayvon Martin’s 2012 killing by vigilante George Zimmerman, the anti-racist movement has grown. Increasing intolerance of police violence against African Americans has swept throughout the U.S. Right after Zimmerman’s acquittal in July 2013, demonstrations sprang up from New York to California.The BLM movement, beginning as a hashtag and slogan then, gained even more credence when police killed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9, 2014. The people of Ferguson responded swiftly to Brown’s killing by white police officer Darren Wilson. A rebellion erupted, along with continual mass demonstrations demanding Wilson’s arrest and prosecution.In solidarity with Ferguson protesters, actions were held around the U.S. and Canada, supported by solidarity protests in Britain. Brown’s killing and the countrywide mass protests further exposed the U.S. as a racist state.Despite the election of an African- American president, the governmental structures of racist capitalism impeded the realization of justice. Even though the Department of Justice investigated Brown’s killing and the activities of St. Louis County police departments and courts — prompting a scathing attack on their actions — no federal civil rights charges were filed against Wilson or key players in the law enforcement, municipal governance and judicial systems.There is no connection between the burgeoning struggle against racism and police brutality and the targeted groups allegedly responsible for the Sept. 11 attack. This is also true of other domestic and international activities, conveniently labeled “Islamic extremist.”These false allegations occur while some corporate media accuse the BLM of fueling unrest and prompting the killing of police officers. Reactionary Bill O’Reilly of Fox News threatens to put BLM out of business for these reasons.Anti-racist and progressive organizations nationwide reject these allegations. These spurious claims are designed to create an atmosphere where anti-racist activists can be criminalized and politically attacked.Even the Sept. 3 New York Times editorial defended BLM from such egregious accusations: “They are not asserting that black lives are more precious than white lives. They are underlining an indisputable fact — that the lives of black citizens in this country historically have not mattered, and have been discounted and devalued.”History of struggle and repressionThe United States was born in violence — by forcefully removing Indigenous peoples from the land and by the “legalized” enslavement and exploitation of Africans brutally taken from their continent to work in the sugar, tobacco and cotton fields of slave masters from 1619 to 1865.Even after the Civil War and the ostensible abolition of slavery, Reconstruction’s failure portended the future status of African people. Lynching, Jim Crow racism, forced penal labor, disenfranchisement and social segregation were entrenched into the 1960s.It took mass demonstrations, urban rebellions and court challenges to overturn U.S. apartheid, now recurring through increased killings by police and the legal system’s failure to hold police officers and racist vigilantes accountable.During the 1960s, some African- American organizations arose which advocated taking up arms to defend their communities against the capitalist state’s racist violence.The Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Black Panther Party sent shockwaves through the ruling class. The FBI under J. Edgar Hoover spent millions of dollars to disrupt and neutralize African-American liberation organizations and fighters.A similar scenario is developing today, but under somewhat different circumstances. From the 1950s through the 1970s, when Cointelpro carried out operations against the African-American movement, there was a broad mass movement among youth, workers and farmers. It encompassed elements from educational, religious, industrial, agricultural and prison sectors of the population.Inspired by the African-American struggle, other nationally oppressed groups developed their own organizations, including the Young Lords, built by Puerto Rican activists; the Brown Berets, made up of Chicanos/as; and the American Indian Movement. They fought against oppression and for self-determination. Additionally, lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender-queer communities, women, environmentalists, people with disabilities, students and seniors mobilized. These organizations formed alliances to fight for common objectives: ending discrimination and demanding full equality.The Peace and Freedom Party formed an alliance with the Black Panther Party in 1968, running its Minister of Information Eldridge Cleaver for president. In July 1969, a National Conference for a United Front against Fascism was convened in Oakland, Calif., where an anti-repression coalition was advanced.On May Day 1970, militant actions shut down Yale University in New Haven, Conn., protesting murder trials of BPP leaders Bobby Seale and Erika Huggins who faced possible execution. Yale President Kingman Brewster Jr. said a week earlier, “I am skeptical of the ability of black revolutionaries to achieve a fair trial anywhere in the United States.” (New York Times, April 25, 1970)Later that year, the BPP initiated the Revolutionary People’s Constitutional Convention to build a broad front of progressive and anti-capitalist forces to transform the racist system.However, forces of the capitalist state targeted the movement, criminalizing and disrupting it. Some activists were killed, railroaded into prison or driven into exile or underground.It is important today for people involved in anti-racist and anti-war activities and for organizations like labor unions to build strategic and tactical alliances to stop the repressive state from isolating and attacking anti-racist activists. The world capitalist system is more unstable now than it was at any other time in the post-World War II period. Therefore a mass movement seeking fundamental change could shake the system at its foundation.The recent movements for immigrant rights, Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter reflect the developing response to the failure of global capitalism to provide a stable future for the majority of people in the U.S. and internationally. The capitalist class will do whatever it can to retain its capacity to exploit the masses. A united struggle against the system can push that back.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The state of press freedom has deteriorated and journalists are working in a climate of fear following the murder of a cameraman in the east of the country and the killing in the capital, Kinshasa, of prominent human rights activist, Floribert Chebeya, director of La Voix des Sans Voix (Voice of the Voiceless). Concluding its annual report, Journalist in Danger recommends:1. the president of the Republic:- gives concrete form, by sending strong signals, to his expressed desire to protect and ensure the safety of journalists and human rights defenders with the aim of discouraging any act likely to put their lives in danger. – To swiftly enact the fundamental law on the organisation and functioning of the superior broadcast and communications council (CSAC), already adopted by parliament several months ago. 2. the government:- while awaiting the adoption of a law decriminalising press offences, examines the request for a moratorium on imprisonment of journalists facing proceedings for defamation or for injurious accusations. 3. Parliament:- instigates and adopts a law on access to public information to allow journalists access to official sources of information. “We salute the tremendous work of Journalist in Danger, to which Congolese journalists can turn every time they are victims of violence or come under pressure. We share the anxieties of our partner organisation about the difficult landscape in which journalists in the Democratic Republic of Congo have to work. In the run-up to elections in 2011, it is essential that the authorities undertake to protect journalists and to guarantee the free circulation of information”, said Secretary General of Reporters Without Borders, Jean-François Julliard.

Image: Saudi Aramco and Zhejiang officials at the MOU signing. Photo: Courtesy of Saudi Arabian Oil Co. Saudi Aramco today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with China’s Zhejiang Free Trade Zone, in which the Zhoushan Government emphasized its support for incentivizing Saudi Aramco’s greater investment in Zhejiang’s future downstream growth. The MoU was signed in conjunction with a visit to Saudi Aramco’s headquarters in Dhahran by Yuan Jiajun, Governor of the Chinese province of Zhejiang.Together with prior agreements signed during HRH Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman’s visit to China in February this year, this MoU facilitates Saudi Aramco’s planned acquisition of a 9% stake in the Zhejiang integrated refinery and petrochemical complex. It will also include a long-term crude oil supply agreement and the ability to utilize Zhejiang Petrochemical’s large crude oil storage facility to serve its customers in Asia. These activities reflect the Company’s strategy to expand its presence in the Chinese energy sector.The agreement solidifies Saudi Aramco’s participation in the 400,000 barrels per day refinery from Phase III of the Zhoushan Petrochemical Greenfield project, and also allows the parties to evaluate potential opportunities for investment in other parts of the value chain. These may include refining and petrochemical production, storage and trade of crude oil and natural gas, retail, as well as distribution of oil products within the Zhejiang Free Trade Zone.
