I agree with Ed Miliband. Let’s delay the tough decisions. Let’s borrow more. Let’s go on adding to our debt,” Osborne is expected to say.“Imagine what would follow. The market turmoil. The flight of investors. The dismay of business. The loss of confidence. The credit downgrade. The sharp rise in market interest rates. The extra debt interest. The lost jobs. The cancelled investment. The businesses destroyed. The recovery halted. The return of crippling economic instability.”Osborne will claim that Miliband and the trade unions, who have also called for a more leisurely pace of spending cuts, are increasingly isolated in the debate over Britain’s £109bn structural deficitHe is expected to reel off a long list of those who have backed his plan for deep cuts, including the IMF, the OECD, credit rating agencies, the European Commission, the CBI, and Bank of England governor Mervyn King.Osborne will also confirm the government’s intention to “rebalance” the economy, so it is less reliant on the financial services sector and the City. Britain cannot create “prosperity for all… by hitching the country’s entire fortunes again to the City of London,” he will say.Osborne’s decision to focus on the need for swingeing public spending cuts is seen as risky by some party strategists, who fear the government is failing to outline an optimistic vision for the economy.Sources close to Ed Miliband last night said his approach to the deficit was “near identical” to David Miliband’s, and accused the chancellor of “resorting to the politics of scaremongering and pessimism”.But an aide to Osborne told City A.M.: “This isn’t about optimism or pessimism, it’s about living in the real work. George is tackling the economic arguments head-on”. Sunday 3 October 2010 11:32 pm Share whatsapplast_img read more

March for Life hears from White House

first_img “Life is winning in America and today is a celebration in that progress,” VP Pence at the 2017 March for Life.History was made on Friday as not one, but two representatives from the White House spoke to the pro-life crowd assembled for the 44th annual March for Life in Washington DC.Vice President Mike PenceVice President Pence became the first Vice President to attend the annual gathering of pro-life supporters. No other sitting president or vice-president has ever attended the event. He told the crowd that President Trump will appoint a Supreme Court Justice to “uphold the God-given liberties enshrined in our Constitution in the tradition of the late and great Justice Antonin Scalia.”“We are, all of us, endowed by our Creator, with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Forty-four years ago our Supreme Court turned away from the first of these timeless ideals. But today, three generations hence, because of all of you and the many thousands who stand with us in marches like this all across the nation, Life is winning again in America.”President Trump “asked me to thank you for your support, for your stand for life and for your compassion for the women and children of America,” Pence said. “From his first day in office he’s been keeping his promises to the American people.”Pence then listed three actions of the new administration:“That’s why on Monday, President Trump reinstated the Mexico City policy to prevent foreign aid from funding organizations that promote or perform abortions worldwide.”“That’s why this Administration will work with the Congress to end taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion providers and we will devote those resources to health care services for women across America.”“That’s why next week, President Donald Trump will announce a Supreme Court nominee who will uphold the God-given liberties enshrined in our Constitution in the tradition of the late and great Justice Antonin Scalia.”“Life is winning through the steady advance of science that illuminates when life begins, more and more every day,” said Pence. “Life is winning through the generosity of millions of adoptive families who open their hearts and homes to children in need.”Pence ended his speech with these words:“Let your gentleness be evident to all. Let this movement be known for love, not anger, let this movement be known for compassion, not confrontation. When it comes to matters of the heart, there is nothing stronger than gentleness. I believe we will continue to win the hearts and minds of the rising generation if our hearts first break for young mothers and their unborn children and if we, each of us do all we can to meet them where they are with generosity, not judgement.“On behalf of the President of the United States and my little family, we thank you for your stand for life. We thank you for your compassion. We thank you for your love for the women and children of America.” The Vice President continued, “Be assured along with you we will not grow weary, we will not rest until we restore a culture of life in America for ourselves and our posterity.”Kellyanne Conway, Counselor to the President, also spoke to the crowd declaring a “new dawn for life.”Kellyanne ConwayIn her speech, Conway said that the “gift of life” will be “promoted” and “protected.”“I am a wife, a mother, a Catholic, Counselor to the president of the United States of America and, yes, I am pro-life,” were the first words she spoke to the crowd. “It is such an honor to stand with the vice president of the United States. And with so many leaders, families and students from places near and far, to defend the unborn. Your courage, your conviction, your resolve and your faith are impressive and consequential. This is a new day, a new dawn for life.”“Why are we here? What does it mean to stand together to be part of this incredible movement? To face criticism, ridicule, laws and lawmakers that diminish and erode our most basic right and the bedrock of our society. It means to protect and to promote the most precious gift in the world, the gift of life.”“It is no coincidence that the first right cited in the Declaration of Independence is the right to life. It is a right. It is not a privilege. It is not a choice. It is God-given. It is unique and it is beautiful. This dismissive notion of out of sight, out of mind is over.”“Science and medicine have joined religion and morality in causing many Americans to rethink just how fragile and how triumphant human life truly is.” You have entered an incorrect email address!

They look so beautiful in photos. Of course, I do understand those who try to make a difference in this world by going to Washington DC and protesting their causes, so I won’t say I never would participate in a DC march.

An ensemble of two houses with a connecting portico is embedded on the edge of a historically agricultural, today heterogeneously cultivated village in the Rhine Valley of Switzerland. The core idea of the project is based on the urban void. Two parallel set apartment buildings, a portico and a former farmhouse create a clearly composed courtyard.Save this picture!© Johanna MutherBoth houses can host up to three different units because of a hierarchically formulated structure which allows a simple and variable floor plan. They allow different ways of living or working. Like a backbone, a solid in-situ concrete core connects the staircase and the main entrance with a solid loggia. This core hosts all serving rooms and functions as a storage-mass in the centre of a timber structure.Save this picture!SketchRaised from the courtyard level, on a concrete plinth, the prefabricated timber facade is constructed and also formally treated, as a multilayered gown. It forms the autonomous surface of the buildings.Save this picture!© Johanna MutherThe outside appearance of the ensemble is characterised by its composite treatment of different materials and surfaces, as well as a contradictory nature in structure and form. Against the expression of the local timber „Veranda“, an almost independent in-situ concrete-structure forms the main facade facing west towards the district road.  Set transversely to the main alignment of the two volumes, the open structure indicates the end of the ensemble but also of the rhythmical perforated, nearly industrial expression of the eave-walls. Based on simple means, like horizontal slabs and pillars, the loggia expresses a pictorial quality through its anti-tectonic indications that mark the border between the private and public space. As a counterpart to this structure, the portico on the east side defines a facade to the courtyard. It connects the two houses physically and provides a sheltered space.Save this picture!Ground FloorTo reinterpret relationships between the various raw and directly used materials of the main construction, paint and pigment are used. Literally thin and economical in means, these treatments implement an architectonical, not merely technical approach, without losing the haptic qualities of the surface below Save this picture!© Johanna MutherProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Residential, Monumental, Gregarious and Bucolic Scales of Lucio Costa’s BrasiliaArticlesMuseum of the Second World War / Studio Architektoniczne KwadratSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:9464 Rüthi, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Farmers Stand Against #NewMacDonald Campaign

first_img By Gary Truitt – Mar 19, 2015 Farmers Stand Against #NewMacDonald Campaign Home News Feed Farmers Stand Against #NewMacDonald Campaign It is time to stand up and fight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The Pork Network reports farmers across the agriculture industry have joined to fight the hashtag New MacDonald (#NewMacDonald) campaign led by Only Organic – a group that represents many of the largest organic companies in the U.S. – that began in March. This new campaign started with a video of school children singing a dark version of Old MacDonald Had a Farm. Once it was released – agriculturalists across the U.S. – including organic farmers – joined the conversation on Twitter and went against the company for its negative attacks, false accusations and unethical propaganda. Unfortunately – Animal Ag Alliance Communications Director Hannah Thompson says the farmer engagement was being blocked, ignored or labeled as hating and trolling by other chat participants. Thompson says the majority of #NewMacDonald dissenters were supportive of organic as a valid production and consumption choice – just not one that should be made based on fear. U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance CEO Randy Krotz says big, small, organic and conventional farmers stood together in the face of blatant mistruths about the food supply and explained transparently what they do and how they do it to help consumers feel better about how food is grown and raised.

Student quit college after ‘life frightened out of him’

first_img Previous articleMotorists warned of dangerous road conditionsNext articleMarathon weekend set to run and run admin Twitter Linkedin Email Facebook 21-year-old accused had 17 previous convictions AN LIT student, stopped on the Old Cratloe Road and who had demands made on him for money, then forcibly brought to a nearby shop to have money taken from him to be used to buy drugs and cigarettes, has abdicated his college place and left the city because he had “the life frightened out of him” during the ordeal.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Put on his election at Limerick District Court for false imprisonment, robbery and other matters, 22-year-old Patrick O’Byrne was before Judge Tom O’Donnell to answer the charges after the DPP consented to have the matters dealt with by summary disposal.Judge O’Donnell questioned the prosecuting inspector to enquire if the DPP had been made fully aware that the LIT student effectively left Limerick and college, “as well as the chance of a new life and new career” as a result of the actions of the accused.Noting that the DPP had, in fact, consented to have the charges answered at the District Court and not proceed on a more serious indictable matter at the Circuit Court, Judge O’Donnell agreed to continue with the matter and accept jurisdiction in the case.The accused pleaded guilty to all matters.Inspector Seamus Ruane gave details of the several charges before the court relating to O’Byrne, of Brother Russell Home, Mulgrave Street.On September 23 last, at 4pm, the accused stopped an LIT student on his way to his apartment in Mayorstone, and demanded he hand over money. Threatening to cause him harm, the accused then forcibly walked the student to a nearby shop to withdraw money as he needed “€25 for a fix”.During the course of the ordeal, it was alleged that the accused threatened to stab the student. In all, €59 was taken from him, and he quickly abdicated his college place and left the city.In a burglary charge before the court, Judge O’Donnell heard details of a break- in at St Mary’s Action Centre, where the accused was found in possession of €150 worth of office goods taken from the centre.He admitted the offence and the items were recovered.  In a theft matter relating to December 21 last, O’Byrne was charged with the unlawful taking of a bicycle from the Post Office the day before. The accused said he was “homeless and needed it to get around”. The property was recovered.On January 21 last, gardai apprehended the accused trying to steal a car radio after he broke in to a parked car in Limerick city.The court was told of a further theft charge on June 20, 2009, where the accused approached a group of students at Arthur’s Quay and took a mobile phone from one of them. A number of the witnesses and students gave chase, but he dropped the phone and fled the scene. He was later identified and arrested at Nicholas Street.Judge O’Donnell heard that the accused had 17 previous convictions, including sentences from Ennis District Court, Limerick District Court and the Circuit Court for thefts, burglaries and the possession of a knife.John Herbert, solicitor, told the court that his client was a heroin addict with a “lot of demons, but since turned a corner on reality”.Addressing the apprehension, theft and false imprisonment charge before the court, John Herbert said that his client had “just been released from prison last September and was in the depths of despair,” adding that he “frightened the life out of that student”.He went on to say that his client “was being treated for his addictions but had a relapse at Christmas”, but since he was taken into custody, O’Byrne was “clean”.John Herbert added his client was abusing drugs from a very young age and came from a broken home.“But he has had an awakening of late”.Judge Tom O’Donnell said that the case before him was one “filled with an appalling set of circumstances – so much so that a young student so traumatised by the events, left college and with it left behind a new life that he was looking forward to and the chance of a bright new career”.Commenting on the burglary charge, Judge O’Donnell noted that “these voluntary organisations have enough to deal with funding without the actions of the accused. They need all the funding they can get,” before adding that he “was surprised at the DPP consenting to have all of these matters finalised here {at Limerick District Court}”.In handing down sentence, Judge O’Donnell said: “This is appalling,” when referring to the entirety of the case of Patrick O’Byrne.For the false imprisonment and robbery of the LIT student, O’Byrne was sentenced to 10 months in prison, backdated to January 22 last.For the burglary at St Mary’s Action Centre, he was given a six-month consecutive prison sentence.  For the theft of the mobile phone, he was hand a six-month consecutive prison sentence.For the theft of the bicycle, he was given a six month concurrent prison sentence and that was backdated to January 22 last, the date the accused was first taken into custody.All other matters before the court were taken into consideration and O’Byrne was returned to Limerick prison to begin his 22 month prison sentencecenter_img NewsLocal NewsStudent quit college after ‘life frightened out of him’By admin – March 1, 2010 696 WhatsApp Print Advertisementlast_img read more

Its lender on the XI, the Children’s Investment Fund, this week filed a complaint alleging HFZ was behind on $160 million in payments. The hedge fund provided the developer with a $1.25 billion loan for the project — a 236-unit condo and 137-key hotel — in 2017.The stress has taken its toll on the firm.
