Ya se ha dado por cierto que los 43 jóvenes fueron asesinados y sus cuerpos incinerados. Muchos padres se niegan a aceptar la verdad oficial y en más de un lugar se han organizado cuadrillas de voluntarios para continuar la búsqueda. Algunos observadores dicen que el secuestro de los 43 jóvenes es uno de los eventos de mayor relevancia en la historia reciente de México. Varias manifestaciones en el Distrito Federal y otras ciudades han portado carteles pidiendo la renuncia del presidente Enrique Peña Nieto que pese a la gravedad de la situación nacional se ha marchado del país para participar de una reunión internacional en China. Como si los problemas fueran pocos, se ha descubierto que el presidente y su esposa han adquirido una casa por valor de siete millones de dólares.En muchas ciudades del mundo libre se ha recordado con especial interés la caída del Muro de Berlín que ahora cumple 25 años. Para muchos que pensaron que el Muro era propaganda de los países occidentales,  han visto en toda su crudeza lo que el muro significó para el pueblo que clamaba por libertad. Muchos perdieron sus vidas para poder cruzar el muro que estaba resguardado por policías armados con perros, alambradas electrificadas, y todo tipo de cámaras y equipos de torturas. En Miami los visitantes podrán ver un pedazo del muro que ha sido donado al Miami Dade College en el mismo centro de la ciudad. El muro fue construido por la Unión Soviética como un intento fallido de aislar a su pueblo del mundo occidental. El muro fue derribado el 9 de noviembre de 1989. En Miami algunos comentaristas han comparado el muro con el Estrecho de la Florida el mar que se interpone entre Cuba y Estados Unidos.El Muro de Berlín fue construido súbitamente tras la división de Alemania después de la II Guerra Mundial. Berlín quedó dividido en cuatro sectores de ocupación (soviético, inglés, francés y norteamericano). En 1949 los tres sectores occidentales pasaron a formar la República Federal Alemana (RFA) y el sector oriental la República Democrática Alemana (RDA). Las relaciones entre ambos sectores tuvieron muchos problemas. La RDA decide levantar un muro “provisional” para evitar la pérdida de población y el 12 de agosto de 1961 éste se hizo realidad. Inmediatamente se colocó una alambrada de 1555 kilómetros.  Se cree que entre 1961 y 1989 más de 5,000 trataron de cruzar, 3,000 fueron detenidas y más de 200 perdieron la vida en el intento. El 9 de noviembre de 1989 la RDA decidió que el paso hacia el occidente estaba permitido. Gran alegría colmó al mundo entero. Por fin las familias podían reunirse y nadie sería perseguido por pasar de un sector a otro. Por eso este día es tan importante.En su viaje por Europa el presidente colombiano Juan Manuel Santos dijo en Madrid que hay que terminar de “una vez por todas” con el conflicto de las FARC y añadió que la paz ayudará al crecimiento económico de Colombia y la región y pondrá fin a males tan terribles como el terrorismo.En la reciente celebración del Día del Veterano en Estados Unidos se reveló que las guerras traen más dolor y angustia de lo que el pueblo conoce. Una cosa es ver una parada militar con música y otra la realidad de un campo de batalla donde fluye la sangre y abunda el dolor. Muchos soldados regresan con el síndrome post-traumático que los afecta emocionalmente y que los lleva a ser enfermos mentales y en último caso a terminar con su existencia. También se mencionó en programas de radio y televisión que el soldado que regresa “es un extraño” para su familia y amigos. Muchos necesitan asistencia médica que el gobierno no les da por la escasez y mala condición de los hospitales para veteranos. Otros soldados se ven abandonados por sus familias y sin trabajo y terminan convirtiéndose en hombres y mujeres “sin techo” viviendo de la caridad pública. “Es una vergüenza que personas que han dado lo mejor de sus vidas por el país, sean ignorados y hasta despreciados por otras personas”, dijo un veterano de Puerto Rico que prefirió no identificarse.RETO: Busca la paz y síguela.

House on Kilrenney Avenue / IKONIKO

Nestled in the heart of Cheviot Hills, this house on Kilrenney Avenue sits deftly on its hillside site. IKONIKO partnered with the builder Becker General Contractors to develop this as a speculative project in this upscale west Los Angeles neighborhood. An existing single story house and disconnected garage, built in 1960, served as the starting point of the design. In order to be environmentally sensitive, the design preserved the existing building’s exterior walls, floor slab and foundations. This also allowed the existing home to take full advantage of the dramatic views from its corners.Save this picture!© David Lena PhotographyBecause the other existing houses in the area sit closer to the street, the current zoning allowed this new design to be built in the front portion of the site. This allowed the architecture to have a dramatic, modern expression while mitigating the sloping front yard and maximizing the private rear yard. A new entrance, placed at an intermediate level, connects the renovated garage to the new living room with a new staircase. This new living room serves as the main viewing platform in the house. Frameless glass walls soar to 12 feet (3.7 m), wrapping the room on three sides, taking in the expansive views of the lush foliage in the neighborhood. A sleek, wood paneled ceiling hovers over the living room and the kitchen, connecting the spaces architecturally, while containing the crucial recessed lighting and ventilation ducts. The centrally located kitchen overlooks the main living room and is able to take advantage of the views to the south while maintaining a degree of privacy with a change in level. Save this picture!© David Lena PhotographyAscending to the main level, one is greeted with an expansive view to the rear yard. Glass doors slide away to seamlessly integrate the living spaces with outdoors. A generous patio space under the master bedroom provides a cool place to relax in the shade while taking in the California sun. The glass walls at both ends of the house are designed to be open to the gentle sea breezes, allowing the house to naturally ventilated most days of the year. Save this picture!© David Lena PhotographyIn order to preserve the views to the rear yard, an open steel staircase drips down from the upper level, inviting visitors to come upstairs. The cantilevered treads are clad in solid walnut, matched to the kitchen cabinets. The stair leads past the double height glass wall, allowing one to take in the view of the minimalist landscape in the rear courtyard. At the top, the master suite moves into the rear yard. This private retreat features a generous open plan with free-standing closets and private balcony. Save this picture!© David Lena PhotographyThe master bath is a minimalist expression in marble and glass. North-facing windows over the two-seater tub allow soothing light to enter, but are placed high enough to maintain privacy. An upper level media room spills out with a large balcony over the living room below. This balcony connects across the front of the house to two of the bedrooms. Deep overhangs shade these southern-facing windows, keeping the house cool.Save this picture!© David Lena PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily on Google ChromeArticlesPlus-Energy House with Electromobility / ILEKArticles Share House on Kilrenney Avenue / IKONIKO Area:  367 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© David Lena Photography+ 20 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/94394/house-on-kilrenney-avenue-ikoniko Clipboard Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeIKONIKOOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos AngelesHousesUnited StatesPublished on December 10, 2010Cite: “House on Kilrenney Avenue / IKONIKO” 10 Dec 2010.

House Farm Bill Defeat Brings Many Issues for Farmers, Ranchers

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News House Farm Bill Defeat Brings Many Issues for Farmers, Ranchers The U.S. House of Representatives’ defeat of a new, five-year farm bill has completely surprised the ag industry. While 2008 law still exists through September 30th – farmers, ranchers and dairy producers say the failure to pass a new farm bill last year left them unable to plan as the planting season approached this year. American Soybean Association President Danny Murphy says the biggest thing it creates is uncertainty – which is the one thing farmers and ranchers can’t have. Murphy says the lack of a farm bill makes it hard for farmers and ranchers to get loans or buy equipment because they don’t know what price support programs they will be operating under – something banks don’t like. Even though most support and subsidy programs for crops run through the end of the year – Murphy says farmers want something done – that Congress can’t keep kicking this can down the road.As for livestock producers – they have almost another year to go without a disaster insurance program that can help after droughts and other weather-related disasters occur – causing them to face an uncertain future. National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Executive Director of Legislative Affairs Cristina Llorens says this is a major defeat for cattle producers because they were counting on Congress doing something to help drought-suffering producers. Llorens says 70-percent of cattle producers were affected by the drought – and cattle herds are the smallest since World War II – so it will take them years to rebuild.National Milk Producers Federation Spokesman Chris Galen says the first program to go – if current law isn’t extended again – will be the Milk Income Loss Contract Program – which compensates dairy producers when domestic milk prices fall below a certain level. Galen says without another extension – farm programs will revert to 1949 law requiring Washington to purchase milk at inflated prices – meaning higher dairy product prices – which would be about twice the current market prices in order to maintain a stable market. Galen says that would be bad for dairy producers and customers.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE House Farm Bill Defeat Brings Many Issues for Farmers, Ranchers Previous articleSeed Consultants 6/24/2013 Market Watch with Gary WilhelmiNext articleIndiana Corn and Bean Condition Continue ahead of National Rating Andy Eubank SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jun 24, 2013 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Keystone XL pipeline gets go-ahead after Alberta government financing intervention

first_imgCriticism over decision timing as coronavirus spreadsThe timing of the decision to push ahead with the pipeline may be questioned, however, given the dire state of global oil markets, the rampant spread of coronavirus and the growing effort to decarbonise world economies by transitioning away from fossil fuels to cleaner energy.The launch of a massive, and expensive, construction effort at a time when communities around the world are implementing lockdowns and social distancing measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 is something critics have been swift to denounce.Hannah McKinnon, energy transitions and futures director at advocacy group Oil Change International, said: “With trillions of dollars at play globally in relief and recovery, we have an unprecedented chance to invest in the future, not the past.“Unfortunately, the Alberta government is still refusing to see the writing on the wall, a failure that comes at a huge cost to Albertans in this crisis moment.”On the issue of pipeline worker safety amid the evolving pandemic, TC Energy’s Girling said: “During construction, we will continue to take guidance from all levels of government and health authorities to determine the most proactive and responsible actions in order to ensure the safety of our crews and community members during the current Covid-19 situation.” Legal battle not necessarily finishedKeystone XL has faced a series of legal challenges in its protracted battle to secure regulatory approval, and, according to Jane Fleming Kleeb, founder of Bold Nebraska, an organisation involved in the effort to halt the pipeline, the judicial hurdles have not yet been overcome.She said: “Legally, TC Energy is facing eminent domain lawsuits from landowners, and county boards have not granted permits in Nebraska, while nationally there are several lawsuits in federal court challenging the project’s permits and seeking a preliminary injunction on construction.“So while it may have a green light to build in Alberta, it does not have all the permits and regulatory approvals necessary to move forward in America.” Completion of Keystone XL pipeline to boost Alberta crude export potential and North American energy securityCanada’s vast oil sands industry – which boasts the third-largest reserves in the world after Saudi Arabia and Venezuela – has long lamented a lack of sufficient export infrastructure for the crude it produces.The Keystone XL pipeline is designed to address this by enabling more than 800,000 bpd to be transported from the region to refineries on the US Gulf Coast.At a time when global dependence on Opec crude oil production is being thrown into stark relief, the acceleration of the will be seen as a boost to the independence of North America’s fuel supply capacity.TC Energy CEO Russ Girling said: “This important energy infrastructure project is poised to put thousands of people to work, generate substantial economic benefits and strengthen the continent’s energy security.” Keystone XL plans in the works for a decade prior to Alberta financing supportPlans to develop Keystone XL were first floated in 2010, but a decade of legal challenges and opposition from environmental groups, politicians and landowners has slowed progress, casting its future into doubt.But the Trump administration has taken steps to help the pipeline clear regulatory hurdles in recent years, rolling back an Obama-era rejection of planning permits, and citing it as a critical asset for reducing US dependence on foreign crude oil.Critics of the project have been quick to denounce Alberta’s decision to direct public funds into the pipeline at a time when communities are struggling to finance relief efforts to tackle the coronavirus health emergency.Government backing will allow construction of the pipeline to begin immediately, creating more than 15,000 jobs across Canada – although the wisdom of mobilising such a workforce at a time of global pandemic has been questioned by critics.A large construction workforce will be mobilised to build the pipeline, drawing criticism over Covid-19 fears (Credit: TC Energy)Premier of Alberta Jason Kenney said: “We cannot wait for the end of the pandemic and the global recession to act. There are steps we must make now to build our future focused on jobs, the economy and pipelines.“We are moving forward with a project that is essential to our future prosperity. This investment in Keystone XL is a bold move to re-take control of our province’s economic destiny and put it firmly back in the hands of the owners of our natural resources, the people of Alberta.”center_img The government of Alberta, Canada will inject $5.3bn in financing to accelerate the Keystone XL Pipeline (Credit: TC Energy) Construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline has been given a long-awaited go-ahead, following a surprise financial intervention by the government of Alberta, Canada.The project – which will carry up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd) from Canada to Nebraska, US – will receive $1.1bn in equity investment from the Albertan state to “substantially cover” the planned construction costs for 2020, followed by a $4.2bn loan guarantee starting next year.TC Energy, the Calgary-based owner of the project, will provide the remaining $2.7bn capital investment to finalise its development, with completion of the near-2,000-kilometre pipeline expected by 2023. After years of regulatory hurdles, the Keystone XL pipeline linking Alberta oil sands in Canada to US Gulf Coast refineries is set to begin constructionlast_img read more

Scoop! Sorbet – the new property management tool for letting agents

first_imgLetting agents and property managers have a new way to co-ordinate maintenance reports and inspections, with a ‘refreshing’ proptech platform called Sorbet.The Cardiff-based innovation is the brainchild of former contractor Brooke Williams, who believed there had to be a better way for agents, landlords, tenants and contractors to communicate, coming up with Sorbet.Sorbet’s software helps with transparency, accuracy and audit trails for the rental market. Letting agents, landlords, tenants and contractors can raise and monitor maintenance requests and jobs through the platform.Brooke teamed up with former Director of Dezrez, Richard Wilson to set up Sorbet, recruiting Kevin Hughes, former Marketing and Finance Director of Gocompare. com, as a non-executive Director.Brooke says, “Co-ordinating maintenance appointments and chasing reports for lots of properties can be a real headache; I know, I’ve been there. Juggling landlords, tenants and contractors, whilst keeping a detailed audit trail is tricky and cumbersome. That’s why we created Sorbet.Proptech“Sorbet is a helpful software assistant for letting agents and property managers that tracks communication between the agent, contractors, landlords and tenants – automatically booking contractors when reports and inspections are due, or deal with tenant maintenance requests without the agent’s input.”Sorbet offers a six-month free trial as part of its beta launch. Agents who take up the programme will be able to offer the Sorbet apps to contractors and tenants completely free for six months. All of Sorbet’s apps communicate with each other, so agents will never be left out of the loop.Register here: https:// www.sorbethq.com/signupRead all the latest proptech newsproptech Maintenance reports and inspections software platform Sorbet software August 22, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
