A family of three generations wishes to live together in one large family home. Southeast of the city centre of Amsterdam they find a building plot. In this metropolitan area, the railway and metro run closely past the house. To create a homely idyll, we designed the house with a raised robust wall towards the city noise that folds around the enclosed garden. Since the children and grandchildren live in the upper quarters, all floors have generous outdoor spaces that step up from the groundfloor garden to the upper balconies.Save this picture!Plan 00The different spaces in the large house borrow their specificity from the angled walls, giving directions to the views and motion through the house. Atmosphere and scale of the rooms derive from the use of cross laminated wood and wooden beams both structurally and as materialisation of the interior space.Save this picture!© Max Hart NibbrigSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Max Hart NibbrigThe narrative concentrates on excercises in living closely together. This requires moments of privacy. This is established by positioning the two front doors at diagonally opposite corners. The living spaces of the families are pulled apart on the ground floor and second level to prevent noise disturbance. The first floor, with large overhangs provides privacy of views into the backyard. This allows the two households to find their own place within the larger house.Save this picture!© Max Hart NibbrigProject gallerySee allShow lessSuperior Art School / LCR ArchitectesSelected ProjectsKarel de Grote Hogeschool Campus Zuid / RAU + StramienSelected Projects Share Huis Eén / Lilith Ronner van Hooijdonk Year: last_img read more

Waysact

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Waysact Regular Giving is one of the most important sources of income for many large charities and global NGOs. The majority have invested heavily in and benefit from mature retention programs.With improvements in technology making this valuable channel accessible to charities big andsmall, it now has the potential to become a part of every individual’s social identity.Any marketing graduate will tell you that, “Retention starts with acquisition”. We know that upto 90% of people who sign up to support charities via an automated regular monthly debit aresigned up by face to face fundraisers. The reason is simple – a lifelong commitment of manythousands of dollars, pounds or euros requires a conversation. The problem is the way in whichthe majority of these prized regular givers are acquired is outdated. It’s not secure and it doesnothing for the lifetime potential of the donor. The current process is so complicated, hard toreport on and long winded that a first supporter communication may not be received for up to6 weeks! Why? All these valuable new donors are signed up on paper. It is hard to secure apaper form and the postage and keying and verification add unnecessary time and errors to theprocess. As many as 40% never make it past the third month. This also means that managingface to face fundraisers can take a small army; the quality of individual fundraisers is hard todetermine; and productivity analysis is a retrospective activity. The skills required, cost involvedand risk can be simply too high a barrier.There is now finally a solution that overcomes these issues, meaning that face to face cancontinue to thrive. Thanks to the dedication of the team at Waysact there is a cost effective,global solution that eradicates paper, allows real time reporting on quality and quantity andcommunicates with new donors in rich, real time multimedia..This software as a service solution has been 3 years in development and is set to revolutioniseface to face globally. The cutting edge web app is built on HTML 5 and Ruby on Rails and hasthe look and feel of a professional application. It’s clear from the first look that the applicationhas been developed by professional fundraisers and people who have a deep understanding ofregular giving.How does it work? The SaaS solution at the front end looks relatively simple; a pledge form,traditionally a paper based pad is digitised onto a mobile device. It is a browser based solutionbut looks native on any device and can work compliantly on and off line. Drilling down, everyfield has algorithms and fuzzy logic behind them to maximise the cleanliness of the data.Address check, instant payments, bank verification, email ping, capitalisation the list goes on.What does this mean, it means data clean enough to be imported directly into your databasewithout manual intervention. The paper pitch card is a thing of the past too, with all pitch,training and motivational information accessed via the device, up to date and with the ability toplay video. And this is just the start, as soon as a mobile number is captured at the touch of abutton an SMS is sent to the supporter, thanking them, linking them to a video and welcomingthem. The fundraiser can take a picture of the supporter with a banner wedding them to yourcause, this can be sent via MMS to the supporter and immediately added as their facebookpicture or tweeted to their followers.Once the pledge is complete – which means complete, all information accurate, bank detailschecked, contact information verified and even a payment already taken if required – a thankyou email is sent to the supporter from your cause. It’ll be waiting for them next time they loginto their email. The donor experience is completely transformed, they have full visibility andvalidation of the amazing action they have just taken instantly and they have been thanked andthanked again.Waysact have gone a lot further than just replacing the form though, as soon as a pledge isconfirmed it comes into the back end, it is geo-demographically mapped, time and date stampedand attributed to the fundraiser, team and campaign instantly. Even before we move onto thereporting Waysact allows us to complete, let’s consider where this data can go, it can go straightinto a call queue to be welcome called or straight into your database that day, that hour, thatminute.So now let’s look at the reporting capabilities, every piece of information about that pledgeis captured, GPS of where it was obtained, gender, amount, payment method, by whom itwas obtained, age of supporter and any number of customisable attributes. Who can see thisinformation, well the fundraiser to start with, on their private dashboard which shows themhow they are doing for the day, week, month or year and how much money they have raised.The team leader who can also see the rest of the teams details too, managers who can seetrends and provide real time feedback about quality of a team or an individual fundraiser.Administration staff can see the pledges coming in too. If one cancels or is invalid this is reimportedback into Waysact so that everyone can see why and when to measure quality.The impact moving forward equates to millions of Pounds, Euros or Dollars in revenue whichwould have otherwise been lost. Think also of the man hour savings every organisation canbenefit from, allowing increased spending on the core function of what is trying to be achieved.This is the clean, transparent and accountable future of face to face fundraising and an excitingbeginning to a digital regular giving revolution.

How to donate laptops for home learning amid COVID19 lockdown

first_imgLessons that do not require printing is one way approach to avoid adding printers to study-at-home requirement lists.   <span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span><span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Some schools and their PTA have set up fundraising campaigns specifically to fund technology donations for all their pupils. Greenham Trust has launched a ‘Laptops for Lockdown Learning’ appeal to raise funds so it can ensure every child in its area of operation who needs one, has one. Focusing on the right equipment is essential in order to help students and schools now. For example, adding printers to the list of essential technology for home-based students is perhaps a step too far. Printer ink is very expensive and, unless donated in bulk with a printer (and the right kind of ink), is going to limit the utility of the printer in households that couldn’t afford a laptop in the first place.  Charity Digital Exchange – part of the TechSoup global initiative, they offer software and some hardware to charities, and have helped 32,000 charities in this way since 2001.In Kind Direct – accepts donated goods from companies and delivers them to charities that need them. It covers all kinds of products, and sometimes this can include technology products. The BBC said on its website: “Last summer local BBC radio stations helped members of the public donate thousands of old laptops and tablets for schoolchildren to use across England. For those pupils, who were sharing phones at home while learning in lockdown, it made a huge difference. With schools now closed again we’re once more asking you to help those pupils still in need.”  Other sources include: Other government initiatives to support pupils Local BBC radio stations are asking for laptop donations for students who need them for online learning, the BBC announced last week.  BBC launches laptop donation campaign for home learning The campaign initially serves local children in the Greenham Trust’s area of operation, which is the West Berkshire and North Hampshire region. However, if The Good Exchange also attracts other funders, corporates and the wider community onto the platform, similar programmes could be created in other areas of the UK. There are other charities that accept donated technology to donate to disadvantaged pupils outside the UK.The Edinburgh-based Turing Trust, set up in 2009 in honour of Alan Turing by his family, honours his legacy by providing quality IT resources and training to schools in sub-Saharan Africa.  It works in Malawi, Ghana and the UK.   Find out more about donating a device on the BBC website.   Donate printers? Reduced or free data costs Other giving platforms are also running appeals to fund tech for pupils at home: Fundraising via Amazon wish list The BBC says it is working with charities to collect, wipe and share the laptops with children who need them. One of these is Business To Schools who are working with schools to connect them with donated equipment.  Greenham Trust launches Laptops for Lockdown Learning fund BT is one provider that is helping:  Some schools are fundraising for laptops If you are a technology or data company with schemes that can help with access to the internet, or a charity not listed who would like to share details with the BBC’s Make a Difference Give a Laptop campaign, contact your local BBC radio station or email [email protected] Reboot Schools fundraising for digital equipment Some, like Cotham School, have experienced not only financial donations but donations of new equipment: center_img Are there other resources in the UK for donating laptops and technology for pupils studying from home? If so, add them in the comments below.   One point to make early on: please do not turn up to a school to drop off donated technology. Apart from COVID-19 safety issues, they will not be set up to accept, handle, store, refurbish and distribute technology equipment. You should use some of the services featured here.  Advertisement Tagged with: coronavirus COVID-19 Donated goods Funding The site was set-up rapidly this month by Third Sector Lab. Other appeals The lack of access to digital technology for all pupils is demonstrating existing inequalities in households. Now that the government has agreed that children in England without access to sufficient technology at home may now attend school, school numbers have gone up in many places, and these children and their families face the further disadvantage of being exposed to coronavirus in a way in which more affluent families are not.

Every £1 donated will be matched, with the capability to raise £500,000 to help schools buy laptops and tablets for disadvantaged children to learn from. Howard Lake | 12 January 2021 | News With all schools closed across England, teaching has gone fully online. However, not all students have access to a computer or laptop. The BBC’s campaign aims to reach these children by asking the general public to donate their unwanted laptops, computers, mobile phones or tablets.  How to donate laptops for home learning amid COVID19 lockdown Other schools are fundraising for tech equipment via an Amazon wishlist. In this way they can specify the items they require and in what volume so that donors know what or how much to donate:  Ten months after the first national lockdown, with schools across England once again closed due to the pandemic, it is clear that many students still do not have access to a computer, laptop or data. Here are some of the initiatives that have been launched, or re-launched, to tackle this as a matter of urgency. You can find out more about support for digitally disadvantaged pupils in Wales and in Northern Ireland.  Of course there are plenty of charities and organisations that have accepted donated tech products for years in order to refurbish them and distribute them to other charities or individuals. In general it is far better to use a specialist service like these rather than dropping off donated used technology products to schools which are not qualified to store, process and handle them.  Studying from home also requires an adequate mobile data or a broadband connection and many families struggle to afford these, in addition to the laptops/tablets required. This was highlighted by MPs in June 2020 according to The Guardian’s Give 1m UK children reliable broadband or risk harming their education, MPs say.

United struggle wins justice for Stephanie Nickerson

first_imgActivists & supporters at press conference Jan. 24 on victory for Stephanie Nickerson. WW photo: Dante StrobinoDurham, N.C.  — On Jan. 24. charges were dropped, including resisting arrest and assault on a police officer, against Stephanie Nickerson. This is a huge victory for all forces of activism and resistance in Durham, N.C., who contributed to getting the charges dropped for Nickerson and to forcing Officer Cpl. Brian Schnee to resign from the police force. Schnee had been in the department for 12 years.SpiritHouse NC, NAACP Durham and NC State Conference, along with Workers World Party, BRICKs, Inside-Outside Alliance and many other activists and family members all took part in building community support to make this victory for Nickerson possible. All these groups contributed to organizing public forums against police brutality and rallies on several cold Tuesday afternoons in front of the Durham Police Department.Stephanie Nickerson, second from right, thanks her supporters, Jan. 24.WW photo: Dante StrobinoAs police brutality is on the rise and capitalism approaches a dead end and its own cliff, we have been fighting tooth and nail for our comrades in many places. As Lamont Lilly of the Durham Branch of Workers World Party told this writer, “We’ve been highly engaged in Baltimore and New York, Wisconsin and Detroit. We traveled by car and plane as revolutionary change agents, standing in solidarity with others as they lead their own struggles.”With words from Malcolm X and connecting our national struggles with those that are local, he further explained that before our own eyes “the chickens have come home to roost. The struggle has hit home now.” And that it did last Oct. 28 when Stephanie Nickerson was beaten and bruised by police for having a voice, for standing up for herself as well as others, for asserting her legal right to see a search warrant while in a friend’s home.Winning justice for countless others like Stephanie Nickerson reflects the words that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke in his 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech:  “A check has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’” The check refers to equality and freedom supposedly guaranteed in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, and “insufficient funds” refer to the hypocrisy of these words where African Americans and other people of color are concerned.Durham was home to one of the largest and most active communities during the Civil Rights movement, The Hayti. At one point, North Carolina was the epicenter for resistance during this historic movement and other struggles throughout history, including the Greensboro sit-ins in the 1960s, the right to self-defense taken by the Wilmington 10 on Feb. 6, 1971, and the Warren County PCB protests in 1982. Major victories have been won from these actions, and they all served as a turning point in the history of oppressed people everywhere. Winning justice for Stephanie Nickerson is an outgrowth of these inspiring actions that taught us to fight injustices against our brothers, sisters and comrades.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

INDONESIA 1965: Lecciones de una derrota catastrófica

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this ¿Quién quiere estudiar derrotas? Es mucho más satisfactorio estudiar victorias. Leer acerca de héroes conquistadores en lugar de vencidos.Sin embargo, cualquier soldado puede decir que los guerreros rechazan el estudio de derrotas a su propio riesgo. Las lecciones de las derrotas son esenciales para éxitos futuros.Si no por otra razón, los movimientos sociales progresistas surgiendo en este período de profundización de la decadencia capitalista, necesitan aprender sobre la derrota catastrófica que ocurrió en Indonesia a partir del 1 de octubre 1965 – hace medio siglo.En pocos meses, los ríos a lo largo de esa poblada nación del sudeste asiático quedaron congestionados con cadáveres. El ejército había ido de isla en isla y de pueblo en pueblo pidiendo a sus secuaces locales que reuniera a aquellas/os que tuvieron alguna asociación con el Partido Comunista Indonesio – PKI – o con sus filiales de masa: asociaciones de obreros, campesinos, mujeres y jóvenes que habían estado exigiendo justicia y una mayor igualdad.Una vez identificadas/os, o fueron asesinadas/os en el lugar o enviadas/os a campos de concentración. Los estimados de la prensa occidental sobre el número de muertes en este baño de sangre, se informaron sin emoción, oscilando entre 300.000 y un millón.Usted no oirá nada de esto en las historias que presentan al gobierno y a los militares de EUA como defensores de la libertad y la democracia mundial. Pero EUA estaba profundamente involucrado, incluso mientras al mismo tiempo expandía su guerra neocolonial a Vietnam, Camboya y Laos.En los últimos años, indonesios valientes y algunos investigadores occidentales han desenterrado trozos de esta horrorosa historia. Dos documentales del cineasta Joshua Oppenheimer – “The Act of Killing” (El acto de matar) en 2012 y en este año “The Look of Silence” (La faz del silencio) – se basan en entrevistas con indonesios que llevaron a cabo algunos de los asesinatos y aún alardean de ello, y con miembros de la familia de sus víctimas.Oppenheimer dice que trabajar en las películas fue como ir a la Alemania nazi 40 años después del Holocausto – y encontrar la misma gente todavía en el poder.La periodista Kathy Kadane entrevistó en 1990 a ex funcionarios del Departamento de Estado y la CIA que no sólo admitieron que EUA había dado listas con los nombres de miles de miembros del PKI a los militares indonesios en el momento de los asesinatos, sino que trataron de justificarlo. (Chicago Tribune, 23 de mayo, 1990)La oposición a masacres en EUALo que no se ha mencionado sin embargo, es que existía una oposición activa en EUA en el momento de los asesinatos. Jóvenes contra la Guerra y el Fascismo (Youth Against War & Fascism, YAWF), el brazo juvenil del Partido Workers World-Mundo Obrero, realizaron manifestaciones en contra del papel de Estados Unidos en estas masacres y expusieron lo que estaba sucediendo en Indonesia a través de artículos en este periódico.YAWF también organizó una investigación pública en la Universidad de Columbia, el 2 de junio de 1966, a la que asistieron 1.000 personas. El grupo colocó un anuncio acerca de la investigación en una edición internacional del New York Times para que el mundo pudiera ver que había oposición en EUA a los terribles crímenes perpetrados por Washington, en connivencia con una camarilla de generales indonesios de la extrema derecha.El famoso matemático y filósofo Bertrand Russell envió un mensaje a la investigación en nombre de su Fundación Paz. Dos de sus representantes habían estado asistiendo a una conferencia en Yakarta en el momento del golpe.Russell escribió que “pocos tenían duda sobre lo que estaba sucediendo a su alrededor. La Séptima Flota de los Estados Unidos se encontraba en aguas javanesas. La base más grande de la zona, febrilmente construida por EUA solo unos meses antes en el punto más meridional de la isla más al sur de las Filipinas, fue ordenada en estado de alerta. El general Nasution tenía una misión en Washington. Estados Unidos estaba involucrado directamente en el día a día de los acontecimientos”.Los oradores en la investigación incluían a William Worthy, corresponsal del Baltimore Afro-American, quien había visitado Indonesia tres veces; el profesor Andrew March, del Instituto de Asia Oriental de Columbia; el periodista Eric Norden; y Mark Lane, un ex miembro de la Asamblea del Estado de Nueva York quien más tarde llevó a cabo una investigación independiente sobre el asesinato de John F. Kennedy. La indagatoria fue presidida por esta escritora.Los medios corporativos boicotearon el evento, pero una transcripción de toda la reunión fue publicada por YAWF ese año en forma de libro bajo el título “The Silent Slaughter: The Role of the United States in the Indonesian Massacre” (La masacre silenciosa: El papel de EUA en la masacre de Indonesia). Aún se encuentran copias en librerías en línea.YAWF continuó denunciando y protestando contra el terrible exterminio físico de la izquierda en Indonesia, que antes del golpe llegaba al menos a 20 millones de personas – 3 millones de miembros del PKI y de 15 a 20 millones de activistas en varios grupos aliados.En febrero de 1970 YAWF publicó “Indonesia: The Second Greatest Crime of the Century” (Indonesia: El segundo crimen más grande del siglo), que detalló la lucha del país para superar su legado de pobreza extrema después de derrotar el dominio colonial holandés. Bajo Sukarno, su primer presidente, Indonesia se había convertido en imán para los nuevos países independientes que trataban de sobrevivir en un mundo dominado por el imperialismo.El libro también mostró que los políticos estadounidenses estaban al tanto de los monumentales crímenes realizados por sus aliados en Indonesia a partir de 1965, y consideraban las decenas de millones gastados en ayuda militar a los generales como “dividendos pagados”. (Testimonio del senador por Alabama John Sparkman, en las audiencias sobre el Programa de Asistencia al Exterior de 1967)Un actor importante en las relaciones de la administración de Lyndon Johnson con los generales indonesios fue el vicepresidente Hubert Humphrey, cuya reputación “liberal” proporcionó una buena cobertura para sus contactos secretos con el ministro de Relaciones Exteriores de Indonesia, Adam Malik. Malik dijo a la periodista Marianne Means, de la revista World Journal Tribune, que Humphrey había jugado un secreto, pero importante papel en el fomento de las “fuerzas democráticas” en Indonesia, queriendo decir los generales asesinos. (WJT 28 de septiembre de 1966)Griswold es autora del libro “Indonesia: Segundo Crimen más grande del siglo” Es de libre acceso en línea en workers.org.Fue reimpreso en octubre de 1975. Una tercera edición se publicó cuatro años después.last_img read more

Seedling Pests in Corn and Beans Could be 2013 Problem

first_img Facebook Twitter FMC insect answersWhen drought took center stage last year it effectively put a muzzle on insects that had been creating some problems in Indiana fields. The corn crop got off to a pretty good start last year according to Adam Prestegord, Product Manager at FMC Corporation, but seedling pests are a concern.“In Indiana in corn in the soil there has been a lot of damage from seedling pests like wireworms, grubs, maggots, and some of the seed treatments out there just haven’t been enough protection. Of course the genetics are really only for corn rootworm and that’s not really a major pest in Indiana, so there are other pests that have been a concern. But there was a fair amount of insect pressure before the drought situation came in later in the year.”A year ago many farmers were on the lookout for spider mites in soybeans.“Although corn might have been struggling because it was so hot and dry, spider mites became a major pest threat in soybeans last year. A lot of growers wanted to make sure that they were treating their crops particularly knowing that some of their corn acres may have been a bit at risk, certainly making sure they protected their soybean crop was of utmost importance.”FMC’s Capture LFR in furrow insecticide for application at planting is a solution the company has offered for corn and now soybeans.“We’ve been on corn with Capture LFR for quite a few years providing a zone of protection around those roots to protect the root system from those seedling pests. Also for Capture LFR we just received approval in furrow use for soybeans. So for those farmers who have seen success in their corn we encourage you to also use it in soybeans. That’s been a recent label expansion for us this year.”Prestegord says national data shows a yield increase of 11 bushels in corn. FMC also has a foliar insecticide called Hero for control of soybean aphids, spider mites, Japanese beetles and other foliar pests in corn and soybeans.

Community loses servant

first_img “What struck me about Joel was his humbleness,” Madden said. “He was always humble and he had a strong belief in God and was dedicated to serving his fellow man. He was very serious about his work and worked continually for the betterment of the Troy Housing Authority. His work knew no bounds as far as time was concerned. He would work 24-7 in the need be.” Madden said Witherington had a saying but he couldn’t it quote word for word. “But the essence of it was that if something was for the benefit of the residents of Troy Housing Authority, he would try to do it no matter what the task.” George O’Neal, a longtime friend of Witherington, knew him personally and also worked with him with the City of Troy. “Joel did a tremendous job and was a great influence on a lot of people,” O’Neal said.“He led by the his lifestyle. He had the respect of all those he worked with at the Troy Housing Authority and was well respected in the community. Joel was well known, well respected and well loved. He was a good friend and a good man. I admired him and he will be greatly missed by a lot of people.” The Troy community is mourning the loss of one of its most dedicated and outstanding citizens.Joel Witherington’s death on Sunday threw a cloak of sadness over the entire community that he served so unselfishly for more than 20 years as director of the Troy Housing Authority.
