They moved to Almere for economical of spatial considerations, but still love the specific atmosphere that is associated with Amsterdam architecture. Almere (and Almere-Poort specific) is economicallyconnected to Amsterdam. This connection is broadened by introducing the specific Amsterdam atmosphere in Almere, through using design principles and style elements from ‘De Pijp’ (typical Amsterdam neighbourhood).Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe street façades are divided per parcel, with a classical triple division. There are small differences in detailing, colour and height. Fat horizontal lines make this very visible and emphasizethe graphic effect of staggered houses. The colour- and stone structures are less fine and warmer than common in Amsterdam, to be able to compete with the open space and harsh weather in the area.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe inner side of the block has a completely different nature. It is withdrawn from the street and has an informal character. It’s the place where partners see each other coming home and neighbours meet. Short galleries stand free from the façade. Big terraces which are shifted above each other make the connecties to the apartments. This results in terraces with double height and contact with the upper neighbours is stimulated. The materialization is warm and soft, to create an informal atmosphere and make the terras an extension of the apartment.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe apartments all have (except for the corners) equal measurements. A fixed core is designed, which allows a number of plan variations, suited for different user groups.

More than 600,000 children have been reached through its education and child protection programmes, and over 150,00 children have been moved out of child labour and into classrooms. Advertisementcenter_img [message_box title=”About IKEA Foundation” color=”blue”]The IKEA Foundation aims to improve opportunities for children and youth in the world’s poorest communities by funding holistic, long-term programmes that can create substantial, lasting change. The Foundation works with strong strategic partners applying innovative approaches to achieve large-scale results in four fundamental areas of a child’s life: a place to call home; a healthy start in life; a quality education; and sustainable family income. Currently-funded programmes benefit an estimated 100 million children.[/message_box] Focusing on help for girlsThe new stage of the project will include a focus on protecting girls by establishing community groups that will champion girls’ rights and awareness of gender based discrimination and ensuring girl’s education. The states of Punjab and Haryana have the lowest child sex ratios in the country, with 834 and 846 per 1000 male children (2011). Per Heggenes, CEO of IKEA Foundation, explained why it was making the new grant.“We know there is no quick-fix solution to ending child labour, but long–term approaches can yield impressive results. The IKEA Foundation, with our partners, has been tackling this issue in India for nearly a decade. This new phase reinforces our long-term commitment and our desire to help millions more children out of child labour and back into the classrooms.”  90 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Tagged with: Fundinglast_img read more

Charity Commission NI urges caution over Christmas giving

first_img Tagged with: Charity Commission for Northern Ireland christmas Northern Ireland Howard Lake | 9 December 2016 | News  103 total views,  1 views today  104 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Charity Commission NI urges caution over Christmas giving Safer givingThe Charity Commission for Northern Ireland’s safer Christmas giving tips are:1. Check the register to ensure the Commission knows about the charity and it is prepared to meet its legal duty to apply for registration.2. If the charity has been registered by the Commission then search for it via the public register of charities to find out important information on its charitable purposes and public benefit.3. To donate online to a particular charity, look for that charity’s website. Check that you have the right web address.4. Be careful when responding to emails or clicking links on emails. Always check emails are genuine by looking out for spelling mistakes or other signs that the email is not genuine. If you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to contact the charity directly.5. Check whether a collector has the authority to collect. A permit or license is usually required if raising money in a public place. These permits are obtained through the PSNI at present.6. Ask the collector how much of your donation goes to the charity. There’s no fixed rule about what percentage should be given to charity, but our advice is for people to ask what proportion of gross profit goes to the charity. This allows you to make an informed choice before you give.7. Ask the collector for more information about what donations will be used for. A genuine charity will understand that you may wish to know more and should be happy to answer questions.8. Check that the collection tin is sealed and that it is not damaged.9. If in doubt send your donation directly to the charity.10. It is always good practice for charities to tell you how your money has been used after you have given via emails, newsletters or other communications. The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland has urged people to exercise caution when donating to charity this Christmas because of the danger of fraud.Tom McGrath, Chief Charity Commissioner, explained:“It’s traditional to give at Christmas time and many more people may be tempted to give to charity this month than usual.“Most requests for donations will be genuine but with fraud becoming more sophisticated it’s important that you have full confidence in who you’re giving to.“If you’re in any doubt, the Commission has a range of resources anyone can access including details of registered charities and details of their expenditure, as well as ten tips for safer Christmas giving.”At present, there are 5,300 charities registered and listed on the Commission’s public register of charities, available on its website.The Commission has also highlighted additional checks which can be undertaken when donating to charity this Christmas.

Lenín versus Lenin in Ecuador

first_imgAznárez, based in Buenos Aires, is the director of Resumen Latinoamericano (resumenlatinoamericano.org), which published this article on Oct. 8. Translation by Michael Otto.As the revolutionary Franz Fanon wrote, insurrection has always been a weapon of the humble people — of the “wretched of the earth.”  It is a necessary alternative and a mirror through which one must reflect — when the moment comes, when the possibilities of dialogue with those who rule are exhausted and when those from below move to the left. One fine day, the humiliated and dispossessed do stand up and shout a forceful “¡basta ya!” (Enough is enough!).  From that moment on, everything becomes possible, including the seizure of state power.Class struggle takes priorityIn terms of political practice, it also means that the class struggle takes priority.  No matter how much anyone wants to keep it under wraps, it explodes with all its strength and moves the foundations of the “winter palaces.” That is precisely what is happening in Ecuador today. Lenín Moreno’s government has no more bandaids, excuses and lies with which to “buy time” as it prepared the “paquetazo,” the bundle of measures the International Monetary Fund imposed on the country. This means that a time will come when those who sold their souls to the devil will have to pay up their part of the deal — and thus they will not hesitate to enforce the deal. Bending, submissive and shamefully distant from whatever principles he might have had, Moreno executes what Washington orders him to. If he has to kill, he kills with total impunity. Sometimes this is done with bullets (Haiti is a similar example).  In other countries, such as Argentina and Brazil, it includes the agony caused by unemployment, extreme poverty and loss of sovereignty.However, the Ecuadorian people are tough nuts to crack. In historic situations like the events happening today, they have overthrown several governments just as corrupt and criminal as the aforementioned Moreno’s. The last of them was headed by Lucio Gutiérrez, who lost the possibility of leading a revolution of workers, Indigenous peoples and peasants by submitting to the Empire and its dictates.Like a lackey of the bourgeoisie, Gutiérrez abruptly ended his administration in the middle of a great popular uprising which provoked his flight through the courtyard roofs of the government palace, climbing on a helicopter, to leave Ecuador forever. It’s something that Moreno must surely have had on his mind when he abruptly decided to move the government house from Quito to Guayaquil in the heat of the early demonstrations which began to surround the Carondelet Presidential Palace.Masses demand Moreno’s ousterNow, the die has been cast for this miserable government, since tens of thousands of Indigenous people, workers and students are going to occupy Quito and Guayaquil.  They are demanding not only the repeal of the IMF package, but also the departure of the despised one who ordered the shooting down of the people and who ensured the impunity of police who threw three young demonstrators from the San Roque bridge in Quito’s historic center.  [One of the youth, Marco Oto, died on Oct. 8 while the other two are in critical condition.] That man [Moreno] who came to head the government thanks to the naiveté of Rafael Correa, then betrayed him like a vulgar Judas.On the other hand, the popular uprising and the consequent Indigenous-peasant march has generated a current of sympathy in all the towns through which it passes. So much so that even the most timid or uncompromising people take to the streets to demonstrate that they are willing to be the protagonists in this historic moment. They do so with the joy that comes from joining their peers, chanting the slogans of the moment and demonstrating to each other that “The people united will never be defeated.” But also, they have enough anger to allow themselves to be convinced that now is the time to put an end to those phony politicians who deceive them every four or five years to support bourgeois democracy. ‘Out with all of them!’That’s why it’s not surprising that at least the Indigenous people represented by the CONAIE (Confederation of Indigenous Nationalities of Ecuador) and the United Front of Workers (FUT) chant the well-known slogan:  “Out with all of them!” For this to really happen, there must be alternatives that do not lead an eventual victory into a blind alley — where others who don’t represent the masses’ interests wind up grabbing the spoils of our many struggles and sacrifices, as has already happened so many times. Neither can we put on the table the loss of freedom and the deaths due to repression. That and similar issues will most likely be discussed now — in the midst of this immense community effort. The legacies of the authentic [Russian revolutionary] Lenin, the brilliant sun of so many battles of the universal proletariat, and Comandante Che Guevara can help defeat this caricature of a puppet ruler, who wasn’t merely unfaithful to his name. Because of his greed and submission to the Empire, Moreno aims to condemn his people to misery, causing them the greatest possible pain.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Crop Insurance Will Survive

first_img SHARE Crop Insurance Will Survive Home Indiana Agriculture News Crop Insurance Will Survive SHARE That, concluded, Rutledge, is why farmers see crop insurance as the “number one risk management tool in their arsenals.” Farmers can rest assured that crop insurance is strong and vibrant and was designed to be able to endure the types of losses we’ve seen over the past several years, said the leaders of two key crop insurance organizations today during the joint national convention of the National Crop Insurance Services (NCIS) and the American Association of Crop Insurers (AACI).  “Hopefully, the rains that farmers have been praying for will come this spring.  But if they don’t, then that’s why the federal crop insurance program is here,” said Steve Rutledge, NCIS chairman, during his opening remarks.  Rutledge pointed out that farmers paid $4.1 billion out of their own pockets for the protection of crop insurance in 2012.   “One of the reasons why this public-private partnership works so well is that those who seek protection must first put ‘skin in the game,’” he said. Facebook Twitter Rutledge noted that while farmers were possibly facing three bad years in a row, the federal crop insurance program has been around since 1938 and farmers should know that when they purchase a policy and suffer a loss, their indemnity is something they can count on.  “One of the many reasons why farmers love crop insurance is because when disasters strikes – and that happens all too frequently in farming – help is there quickly,” he said. Deal explained that the recent drought really put the adjusters’ “feet to the fire,” necessitating long work days, often including weekends.  “In 2012, more than 436,000 policies were indemnified, a number that clearly demonstrates the workload bore by our adjusters,” he said.center_img With drought conditions expected to continue in 2013 and farm policy getting added attention in the halls of Congress, this year will likely be as busy for the industry, Deal explained. By Gary Truitt – Feb 11, 2013 “What we’ve heard from almost every commodity group and farm organization is “Do No Harm” to crop insurance.  This program is a three-way partnership between the general public, the farmer and the private sector, and all three benefit from their investment,” said Deal.   “Crop insurance is the risk management tool of preference – and for some the only risk management tool available – to the vast majority of America’s farmers.” Facebook Twitter Sharing the stage with Rutledge was Greg Deal, chairman of AACI.  Deal called the 15,000 crop insurance agents and 5,000 claims adjusters “the unsung heroes” of the industry, because they work directly with farmers to ensure that crop insurance is fast, accurate and efficient.  “The agents, who are often farmers themselves, understand the risks involved in farming and how unnerving a bad crop year can be,” he said. Deal added that the farm safety net, namely crop insurance, underpins the agricultural sector that not only generates a dependable supply of food but is helping drive the U.S. economy – all for less than one-quarter of one percent of the federal budget.

Recent thunderstorms lead to hazards; more storms to come

This could mean increased wildlife activity around area lakes, according to the Tarrant Regional Water District website. High water in creeks feeding into Lake Worth may also cause portions of some low-lying roadways to become submerged. According to the website, residents may encounter detours on Malaga Drive and Marina Drive at Comanche Trail and at Bomber Road and Shore View Drive.According to a press release from the Tarrant Regional Water District, Lake Worth was closed to all boating traffic at 5 p.m. Tuesday because the lake level was projected to exceed the 595.5 elevation that evening.The lake, which is currently at a 595.94 elevation, will remain closed to all boating until the level dips to the 595.0 elevation and continues to demonstrate a decline. Once the water level reaches the 595 elevation, the water will be swept for hazardous debris before it is reopened. There is no projection on when this will occur, according to the release.The lake is not the only place debris from storms can accumulate.The city’s Solid Waste Division issued tips for residents on how they can assist with clean-up activities following severe weather:Excessive storm-based tree limbs and brush collectionsCut and stack tree limbs in organized rows or piles starting at the assigned collection point.For weekly collections, tree limbs should be cut shorter than eight feet in length and less than four inches in diameter.Tree limbs larger than 4 inches in diameter or eight feet in length should be stacked separately from small limbs/brush.If the total volume (combined piles) is larger than 10 cubic yards (size of a VW Beetle), residents should request an exception by contacting the City Call Center at 817-392-1234.Drop-Off StationsThe city offers access to three drop-off stations for residents who are City of Fort Worth active residential sanitation customers. Bring a recent water bill, driver’s license or other official ID to prove you’re a residential Solid Waste customer. Residents may use a single axle trailer. No double axle or commercial trailers are allowed.No commercial landscapers or contractors are allowed to use the drop-off stations.Community/Volunteer organizationsThere are numerous volunteer community organizations that assist neighborhoods following storms with debris collection. The city asks representatives from these organizations to communicate with Solid Waste through the Call Center to advise us what areas they’re working and how debris can be arranged for collections or access to the drop-off stations.Garbage, Recycling, Bulk and Yard Waste CollectionsDepending on storm severity, various collections may get behind or can “slide forward a day” or longer if trucks are delayed due to excess collections.To receive information as soon as possible, download the City of Fort Worth Solid Waste app. If there are collection delays, collection information will be forwarded to residents as quickly as possible.Missing CartsResidents can call the City Call Center to retrieve their cart numbers and report missing carts. Please wait a couple of days to report them missing as carts usually turn up. The contractor replaces carts within two days so residents will have them before their next collection.For more information, call the City Call Center or send an email to [email protected] representatives did not return a request for comment.  Facebook Race for Tarrant County Sheriff to go to runoff Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Fort Worth to host ‘Gatsby’ themed party as fundraiser ReddIt Fort Worth to host ‘Gatsby’ themed party as fundraiser Rubio mocks Trump at Dallas rally Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Linkedin Linkedin + posts Shelby Whitsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-whitson/ Twitter Shelby Whitsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-whitson/ Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Shelby Whitson last_img read more
