A concentric and non-directional structure formed by four rigid frames, with eight continuous columns that allow for open corners in every floor and other eight that step up regularly in the two elevated levels. This is a balanced sequence in which every floor is symmetrically protected by the following one. The foot of each exterior column is slightly misaligned from the perpendicular beams, thus their heads seem to outline decorative triglyphs. The building is a monolithic piece that supports an entirely confined framework within a compact figure, producing a flat landscape from within, dense and almost mechanically stratified. Save this picture!PaintThroughout an eccentric spiral staircase there is a transition from the smallest and shaded storey, compartmented in quadrants with an access in the central crossing point, to another storey diagonally divided by a block of furniture and, in the highest level, to an open and diaphanous plan, although filled with corners, where an informal aerial life can unfold. From the top, the visual relationship with the inferior floor is imperceptible, to the point of cancelling any contact with the natural ground. This veiled logic of an inverted gravitational adjustment (a classical “entasis”) timidly emerges on top of the surroundings foliage.Save this picture!© Pezo von EllrichshausenSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Pezo von EllrichshausenIn between the darkened reinforced concrete grid there is only native wood for platforms, furniture and large glass panels of fixed or sliding window frames. Perhaps, due to its artificial weightlessness, despite natural efforts descending through the very centre, along a thick core, experiences always tend to be suspended against the solid shadows of each perimeter, against silhouettes backlit by the sun, or rather because of the seduction of their immaterial reflections.Save this picture!ModelProject gallerySee allShow lessThe 5 Types of Professors You’ll Have in Architecture School (And Why They’re All Im…ArticlesPhilip Johnson’s Glass House Featuring Yayoi Kusama’s Exhibition Will be your New Ob…Architecture News Share Nida House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen ArchDaily Save this picture!© Pezo von Ellrichshausen+ 16 Share Projects 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/795020/nida-house-pezo-von-ellrichshausen Clipboardcenter_img Year:  CopyAbout this officePezo von EllrichshausenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNavidadOn InstagramChilePublished on September 12, 2016Cite: “Nida House / Pezo von Ellrichshausen” 12 Sep 2016.

NYC public sector workers fight COVID-19

first_imgNew York City transit strike, 2005.By a New York City public sector worker The direct responsibility of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration for dangerously reducing the size of work stations used by city public sector workers was exposed last year in an article by Katie Honan.  (“New York City Shrinks Cubicles as Municipal Workforce Rises,” Wall Street Journal, July 7, 2019)It revealed: “New York City has millions of square feet of office space to accommodate its more than 305,000 municipal employees — and a space-saving initiative aiming to cut the size of cubicles and make even more room for thousands of new workers.“To make room for more workers, the city’s Department of Citywide Administrative Services changed its space standards, cutting workstation sizes from 6 feet by 8 feet or 6 feet by 10 feet to a standard 6 feet by 6 feet, city officials said.This makes it very difficult for workers to maintain the six-foot distance apart at all times.A city employee, who was ordered to work despite the city shutdown, complained to this reporter that it took municipal unions two weeks to successfully force Steven Banks, of the city’s huge Human Resources Administration (HRA), to rescind his order that had banned HRA workers from wearing masks. This worker also said that an African-American female administrative worker, a shop steward in his union and of the Queens community who worked at Elmhurst Hospital, died March 30 of COVID-19.     In addition, city government “is falling far short of the state’s edict that 75 percent of nonessential workers telecommute, prompting fears from union officials that scores of city workers are being needlessly exposed to the coronavirus.” (Daily News, March 19)Henry Garrido, executive director of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees District Council 37, the union representing nearly 150,000 city workers, said: “There appears to be a lot of institutional  resistance to working from home.” Garrido cited as an example a city administrative bulletin that says workers who have “had close contact” (less than 6 feet for more than a few minutes) with someone who’s tested positive for coronavirus “can keep working.”One veteran worker at the Department of Social Services who suffers from high blood pressure and diminished kidney function told the Daily News that when he requested to work from home, citing advanced age and pre-existing conditions that put him at greater risk, his boss denied the request, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Chief newspaper of March 30 featured  an article titled “Layoffs a Possibility in City and  State Due to Virus’s Economic Toll.” New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has ordered agency heads to come up with a combined $1.3 billion in budget cuts. According to The Chief, “One of those victims [of covid- 19], Harry Nespoli, sanitation workers’ union president and chair of the NYC public sector workers coalition in the Municipal Labor Committee, after saying his condition was improving, complained, ‘It’s not right what they’re doing to New York City.’ ”  Sanitation workers at riskSometimes city sanitation workers who finish their routes early but have not been adequately provided with masks and gloves are forced to linger in dilapidated, undersized garages and locker rooms where it’s impossible to accommodate  six-foot social distancing. This is in violation of the Teamster union contract, which stipulates: “The  Employer and the Union shall conduct periodic inspection of all facilities which house Employees in order to ensure that all such facilities are adequately maintained and provide sanitary working conditions. Where deficiencies are found and/or repair necessary, the Employer will take steps to make such repairs immediately. Since there is a large backlog of needed repairs … if the repairs cannot be made or funds  are not available, and the conditions at the location are such that they constitute a hazard to the life, health, or safety of Employees, the Employer will take immediate steps to transfer all Employees to a more suitable location.”The New York City government is also in violation of the 1970 Occupational Health and Safety Act which, like the sanitation workers’ contract, guarantees the right to a workplace that doesn’t make workers injured or ill. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration also requires employers to provide a workplace free of recognized hazards.    Without struggle, there is no progressAfter six transit workers had already died of COVID-19, John Samuelson, president of the Transport Workers Union, told Channel 5 on March 29: “There was a dispute about masks. The MTA [Metropolitan Transportation Authority] said masks were inappropriate for transit workers to wear. It took weeks and threats to the MTA to get masks. Our workers still don’t have gloves. This subway system is the greatest spreader of this disease. Whatever equipment we need better be there. We are not going to be used as cannon fodder.”TWU Local 100 also forced the MTA to allow people to ride the buses for free, using the side exits/entrances to provide safer social distancing and protect both passengers and bus drivers. People with mobility disabilities can still board as usual.The MTA would do well to heed Samuelson’s warning. TWU 100 has hit the bricks with great strikes in 1966, 1980 and 2005 in defiance of New York State’s anti-labor Taylor Law, which deems illegal all strikes by public sector workers. In New York, when sanitation workers were ordered earlier this month to service a quarantined yeshiva where students had tested positive for the coronavirus, they refused, even after being offered masks.Sanitation workers have a rich history of fighting for their safety. Their work is among the most dangerous of occupations. Many become disabled for life, others are killed doing their job of collecting garbage, clearing and plowing snow, and making our communities cleaner and healthier. In 1968, two days after a New York sanitation workers’ strike ended, the predominantly African-American sanitation workers in Memphis, Tenn., also walked out. The union on the ground was AFSCME Local 1733. This was the famous “I Am a Man” strike, which the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was supporting when he was assassinated.Earlier, two African-American sanitation workers, Echol Cole and Robert Walker, had been crushed to death in one of the city’s outdated trucks. Memphis had no facilities for Black workers to wash up, change clothes or get out of the rain. Cole and Walker had been sheltering from the rain inside the truck’s barrel when its compacting mechanism malfunctioned. The truck hadn’t been repaired because the city wouldn’t spend money on safety for these workers. It took almost 50 years for  their families to receive their pension benefits. During the two years after the New York City and Memphis strikes, sanitation workers in Baltimore, Washington, Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami and Corpus Christi all went out on strike.Labor needs to employ Frederick Douglass’ great rallying cry, “If  there is no struggle, there is no progress,” and stop the bosses from using this pandemic to avoid accountability for our safety.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Statement of complaint against Garda whistleblower previously withdrawn by partner

first_img DL Debate – 24/05/21 Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA WhatsApp WhatsApp The Charleton Tribunal has heard how a statement of complaint against Garda whistleblower Keith Harrison was withdrawn by his partner in 2014.Marisa Simms made the statement on January 11, 2014, withdrawing an earlier complaint which detailed allegations of “obsessive” and “irrational” behaviour by her partner.Inspector Goretti Sheridan told the tribunal yesterday that she was contacted on November 27, 2013 by Ms Simms about withdrawing her statement, which she originally made at Letterkenny garda station on October 6, 2013.Earlier the same month, Inspector Sheridan had been informed that the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission would not be following up on the statement after Ms Simms had told them she did not wish to make a complaint.The inspector said Ms Simms made no complaint about how she had been treated when making her statement.In the January 2014 statement, Ms Simms said: “I want to say that everything I told them on October 6, 2013 and that recorded in the statement is true.””These things did happen and I was honest in what I told them at the time,” the statement said.”Today, January 11, I wish to inform you that I no longer want to pursue a complaint about Keith Harrison. I wish to withdraw the statement I made on October 6.”Inspector Sheridan said it was not true that she had a pre-prepared statement for Ms Simms.The Inspector also said it was “totally incorrect” that she told Ms Simms to “think of her children” when told that Ms Simms wanted to withdraw her statement.”Marisa is a lovely girl and I have no doubt she is a good mother so I have no concern of her as a mother,” Inspector Sheridan said.In an email to Chief Supt Terry McGinn and other officers in 2014, Inspector Sheridan said that Ms Simms and Garda Harrison had got back together at Christmas and were “giving it another go”.Inspector Sheridan told the tribunal that a conference in October 2013 had considered what to do in relation to the complaint received from Ms Simms.There was a debate about referring the statement to GSOC, and whether this would be done under Section 85 or Section 102 of the Garda Síochána Act.The tribunal resumes next week.

Andrew McGinley calls for full investigation into childrens’ deaths

first_img Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Andrew McGinley calls for full investigation into childrens’ deaths Pinterest Twitter In a statement this evening, Andrew McGinley says today’s verdict is probably the right one, adding that everyone who knows Deirdre knows how much she loved our children and how devoted she was to them.However, he says. whatever the outcome of this trial, it remains that Conor, Darragh and Carla have died. and he is no closer to understanding why.He’s called for an inclusive investigation into Deirdre’s diagnosis, treatment and medication prior to this tragedy, to be conducted as a matter of urgency.He says such an inclusive investigation can only serve to inform clinicians in their practice and avoid such tragedies happening again.”We do not want any other family to suffer as we have”, he concludes.Statement in full -Thank you to everyone who has supported our families over the past year and more. We will never be able to thank you all enough. Thanks to the Office of the DPP, Anne Marie Lawlor, Grainne Whelan and Edel Gilligan. Also to Jonathan Dunphy and Michael Bowman for the Defence. Thanks to the Gardai and finally to the jury for the task they faced with this trial.Today’s verdict is probably the right verdict. Everyone who knows Deirdre, knows how much she loved our children and how devoted she was to them.Whatever the outcome of this trial, it remains that our beloved children Conor, Darragh and Carla have died. As I write this, I’m no closer to understanding why.As outlined in the medical expert reports, Deirdre’s diagnosis prior to the children’s deaths is different to her diagnosis now. With the cooperation of the HSE Mental Health Services I hope we will be able to understand why as the HSE Mental Health Services were responsible for Deirdre’s diagnosis, treatment and medication and she was in their professional care. If Deirdre’s diagnosis was questionable prior to January 24th 2020 then surely so too was her treatment and medication.We are now also aware of a number of occasions within Deirdre’s professional care when her initial diagnosis should have been queried but none of these seem to have been fully addressed. This trial was never going to explore those issues so we ask the HSE Mental Health Services for an inclusive investigation into Deirdre’s diagnosis, treatment and medication prior to this tragedy. We ask for this to be conducted as a matter of urgency. This will help us understand the insanity that took the lives of our beloved Conor, Darragh and Carla. We as a family need to be included in any  investigation as our exclusion during her treatment has left us with many unanswered questions. We believe that an inclusive investigation can only serve to inform clinicians in their practice and therefore avoid tragedies like ours happening again. We do not want any other family to suffer aswe have.In the past 20 years over 50 children have died at the hands of one of their parents. Over 60% of the those people were known to have had previous contact with psychiatric services. However the Mental Health Act 2001 does not go far enough in ensuring that the family support structures for the patient are fully engaged and included by the mental health professionals treating our loved ones. This was raised by Una Butler back in 2010 following the deaths of her beautiful daughters Ella and Zoe. She campaigned tirelessly to many within the Oireachtas to seek a more inclusive and collaborative approach with families. Alas nothing much changed. The lessons which should have been learned from the sad loss of Ella and Zoe should have led to improvements in the Mental Health Act. This in turn would have prevented the deaths of Conor, Darragh and Carla in our opinion.It is too late for us but I do not want to see another grieving parent speaking in the future about the same exclusion after a similar catastrophic loss. My message here and now to any one who has a loved one in psychiatric care is to get in there as soon as you can to be added as an advocate for their treatment plan.I will continue to celebrate the all too short lives of Conor, Darragh and Carla to ensure that they are never forgotten. Conor had asked me to help him with a YouTube channel and I promised I would. You will find Conor’s Clips on YouTube now and given his interest in the internet this is supported on Twitter and Instagram. I hope to continue to do that with the same great sense of humour which Conor had.I promised to build a snowman for Carla. As we don’t get snow every year I’m planning a colouring competition called Snowman for Carla in her name.For Darragh I promised to get involved with Rathcoole Boys. However Darragh had been involved in everything in the community – Rathcoole Boys, Commercials Hurling, St Marys GAA, The Athletics Club, the Drama Club to name but a few. In Darragh’s name I am starting a charity to encourage everyone to get involved more in their own communities and to participate … As Darragh Did.Personally, I will be taking some of the unique characters that Conor and Darragh created in their own comics, plays and books and I will attempt to do them proud by bringing these characters further along in books which I hope to write in their honour.www.conorsclips.iewww.asdarraghdid.iewww.snowmanforcarla.ie Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows DL Debate – 24/05/21 Previous articleSprint schedule ahead for Donegal Ladies – Maxi CurranNext articleJoe Boyle expects the Donegal Hurlers to respond against Mayo News Highland Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Google+center_img Homepage BannerNews News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Twitter Facebook Google+ WhatsApp Pinterest By News Highland – May 20, 2021 WhatsApp Facebooklast_img read more
