Besides the impressive landscape features a centuries-old tradition of wood construction which still exists in extensive parts of the area. Unfortunately, this building style didn’t evolve in a positive manner during the last couple of decades. Many of the newly built structures do not blend in with the character of the villages. Furthermore, no attempts are made to evolve a new style of housing based on the existing traditions. The goal should not be to solely conserve the existing context, but to develop an overall strategy rooted in the qualities and characteristics of the existing context. Save this picture!© Markus KächWooden StructuresThe history and culture of the villages in the Goms valley have always been closely related to the development of wooden structures. Unfortunately, the profound knowledge about the particular construction technique tends to sink into oblivion instead of being applied during the construction of new buildings. Therefore it is important to pass this valuable knowledge on to our descendants while making it more attractive again. This applies for the log construction method in particular. Due to the fact that it is deeply rooted in the region, it can be considered highly ecological and sustainable. Save this picture!© Markus KächProject SiteThe project site is located at the loosely populated northern edge of the village. A generic historical cluster of houses constructed in the log building method is located only a stone’s throw away. The building adapts the constructive logic of this significant historic construction style while reinterpreting it according to the clients needs. The sloping terrain mainly remains unchanged and is hence covered by the typical local meadows. Only a narrow pass way serves as connection between main entrance and adjacent road. To protect the wooden structure from moisture, it is placed on top of a concrete base which at the same time envelops the ground floor. The interior walls of this floor however are part of the wooden structure. They can be understood as an extension of the wooden upper floors reaching into the concrete shell consisting of the enclosing walls of the grond floor and the slab underneath. Like this, the wood can unopposedly spread its natural warmth within the entire volume of the building. Save this picture!© Markus KächMaterialThe character of the log building method is determining the structure and materiality of the project. The log structure itself is made of larch wood, which is more noble and resistant than spruce wood and is also used for the windows and most built-ins. The log walls, which penetrate the inside of the building are visible at all times. By contrast, the internally insulated outer walls are clad with gypsum boards and covered with grey slaked lime plaster. This generates a contrasting interplay between mineral and organic surfaces. The shadow gap along the upper edge of each plastered surface clearly reveals its non-structural character. Save this picture!© Markus KächSpacial ConceptDue to the system of chambers which is known to be typical for log buildings, the ground floor is symmetrically divided into a circulation zone and four equally sized rooms. Those contain bath and sauna, technical installations and two studios. This room layout widens upwardly according to the respective function of the rooms to climax right under the pitching roof as over heigh piano nobile. From here, one can gain access to the spacious balcony occupying the entire width of the building. Two outside benches invites to linger while being well sheltered from the wind. Save this picture!© Markus KächSustainability Thanks to the extraction of thermal heat from the ground, no fossil energy is used for heat production. The renewable construction material wood reduces the amount of grey energy and thus decisively minimizes the ecological footprint of the building. In addition to that, returning to the log building method preserves, revives and promotes a traditional local craftsmanship.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessCincinnati Live/Make Competition ResultsCompetition ResultsFocal Point Community Campus Proposal / HDR ArchitectureUnbuilt Project Share Area:  135 m² Area:  135 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeRoman Hutter ArchitekturOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesReckingen-GluringenHousesSwitzerlandPublished on February 28, 2013Cite: “House in Reckingen / Roman Hutter Architektur” 28 Feb 2013.

Black activists say: ‘Shut Down AFRICOM!’

first_imgThe following press release was issued on Oct. 1, 2018, by the Black Alliance for Peace, a group of Black anti-imperialist activists.The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) has launched U.S. Out of Africa!: Shut Down AFRICOM, a campaign designed to end the U.S. invasion and occupation of Africa.Today marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of AFRICOM, short for U.S. Africa Command. Although U.S. leaders say AFRICOM is “fighting terrorism” on the continent, we believe geopolitical competition with China is the real reason behind AFRICOM’s existence. AFRICOM is a dangerous structure that has only increased militarism.When AFRICOM was established in the months before Barack Obama assumed office as the first Black president of the United States, a majority of African nations — led by the Pan-Africanist government of Libya — rejected AFRICOM, forcing the new command to instead work out of Europe.But with the U.S. and NATO attack on Libya that led to the destruction of that country and the murder of its leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, corrupt African leaders began to allow AFRICOM forces to operate in their countries and establish military-to-military relations with the United States.Today, those efforts have resulted in 46 various forms of U.S. bases as well as military-to-military relations between 53 out of the 54 African countries and the United States.U.S. Special Forces troops now operate in more than a dozen African nations.Vice Adm. Robert Moeller, first and former deputy of AFRICOM, declared in 2008, “Protecting the free flow of natural resources from Africa to the global market is one of AFRICOM’s guiding principles.” (, Nov. 16, 2011)We say AFRICOM is the flip side of the domestic war being waged by the same repressive state structure against Black and poor people in the United States.In the U.S. Out of Africa!: Shut Down AFRICOM campaign, we link police violence and the domestic war waged on Black people to U.S. interventionism and militarism abroad.“Not only does there need to be a mass movement in the U.S. to shut down AFRICOM, this mass movement needs to become inseparably bound with the movement that has swept this country to end murderous police brutality against Black and Brown people,” says Netfa Freeman, of Pan-African Community Action (PACA) and the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS).Freeman represents PACA, a BAP member organization, on BAP’s Coordinating Committee. “The whole world must begin to see AFRICOM and the militarization of police departments as counterparts.”It costs $267 million to fund AFRICOM in 2018, according to Vanessa Beck, BAP research team lead and Coordinating Committee member.“That money is stolen from Africans/Black people in the U.S. to terrorize and steal resources from our sisters and brothers on the African continent,” Beck said. “Instead, that money should be put toward meeting our human needs in the U.S. and toward reparations for people in every African nation affected by U.S. imperialism.”BAP makes the following demands:the complete withdrawal of U.S. forces from Africa,the demilitarization of the African continent,the closure of U.S. bases throughout the world, andthe Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) must oppose AFRICOM and conduct hearings on AFRICOM’s impact on the African continent.We ask the public to join us in demanding an end to the U.S. invasion and occupation of the continent of our ancestors by signing this petition that we will deliver to CBC leaders.This campaign is BAP’s effort to help shut down all U.S. foreign military bases as well as NATO bases. BAP is a founding member of the Coalition Against U.S Foreign Military Bases.Visit for resources.Media Contact: ­­[email protected]oreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TUC: discriminatory pay rates must end

first_imgBlack and Asian workers earn on average £97 per week less than their whitecounterparts, research by the TUC shows. The TUC claims the findings show that the Race Relations (Amendment) Actrequiring public sector employers to promote diversity in their organisationsshould be extended to the private and voluntary sectors. John Monks, TUC general secretary, said: “New laws in the public sectorwill make a difference. These must be extended to end unfairness in pay forblack and Asian workers. “These workers suffer twice the levels of unemployment, lack ofpromotion opportunities and racial harassment.” The report also reveals big differences in pay within black and Asiancommunities. Pakistani and Bangladeshi men earn £150 per week less than whitemen, Caribbean men earn £115 less and Africans £116 less. Black and Asian women earn £7 a week more than white women – they are morelikely to work full time – but Pakistani and Bangladeshi women earn £34 a weekless than white women.

Remotely sensed mesoscale oceanography and the distribution of Illex argentinus in the South Atlantic

first_imgIn this study, we consider the influence of mesoscaleoceanographic processes around the Falkland Islands(Islas Malvinas) in the South-west Atlantic, duringthe period in which the commercial squid fishery forIllex argentinus operates. Spatially referenced fisherydata and satellite-derived advanced very high resolutionradiometry (AVHRR) sea surface temperature(SST) data were examined using geographic informationsystem (GIS) techniques. The distribution andrelative abundance of I. argentinus in the FalklandIslands fishery was examined for the period 1989±96.Three consistent areas of high abundance wereobserved to the north-east (shelf-break region) andnorth-west (shelf region) of the islands, and close tothe northern coast of East Falkland. Areas of high seasurface temperature gradients (thermal gradients)extracted from remotely sensed satellite images wereused as an indicator of mesoscale oceanographicactivity and compared with the location of the fishery.I. argentinus were found to be associated with areas ofthermal gradients, commonly seen at the interface ofFalkland Current and Patagonian shelf waters. Thetechniques used in this analysis allow the overlay andanalysis of physical oceanographic and fishery datawith potential applications in fisheries managementand operational fisheries oceanography.last_img read more

first_imgBy Susan Stamper BrownA wise Alaskan once said, “If you tie a wolf to a sled dog team, there will be lots of activity but no forward progress.”He was right, and his excellent word picture can easily be applied to the state of things in America these days, given all the commotion happening over bathrooms, wedding cakes and other non-issues raised by the proverbial wolves of secular liberalism who prey about, seeking to devour what’s left of the America our Founder’s established.Sure, conservatism struck out this election cycle, but like the Boston Red Sox learned from being 0-3 against the Yankees in the 2004 World Series, persistence pays off. Take it from this blonde columnist who has experienced more disappointing defeats than victories in her life thus far — pushing forward, despite temporary defeat is the stuff winning is made of — especially when what we’re doing is less about us and more about “For love of the game.” Or, in the case of conservatism, for the love of God and country.That kind of devotion is maddening to the wolves of secular liberalism who will not rest until they’ve removed all things rational, moral, traditional and right, like liberal Harvard Professor Mark Tushnet, who says the culture wars are over and his side won, simply because they are on top this inning. The highly educated but not-so-wise professor is already making plans on what should be done to those conservatives, evangelical conservatives specifically, he claims lost the culture wars.Bloviating in on May 6, Tushnet proposed “taking a hard line” approach over playing nice would suffice. “Trying to be nice to the losers didn’t work well after the Civil War… (And taking a hard line seemed to work reasonably well in Germany and Japan after 1945),” he wrote. You really cannot fix stupid. The sheer idiocy of equating evangelical conservatives to the Nazi’s of 1945 Germany highlights why it’s necessary for liberals to hunker down behind fake labels and syrupy words to disguise how they really feel.As Ronald Reagan once said, “The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.”“But the war’s over, and we won,” Tushnet bragged in his blogging rant. Maybe in his mind it’s over, but what he and other secular liberals fail to get is that it’s fundamentally impossible to win a war that’s already been won. (Evangelicals understand that the ultimate “culture war” between right and wrong was waged on a cross two thousand years ago.)The battles we fight today are for the hearts and minds of individuals and for the soul of a nation blessed by God once upon a time and in a land far, far away from this dark place we now stand where wolves seek to devour the very things which allow them the ability to freely roam.President Reagan prophetically understood the dangers we face: “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth…Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the ideals of the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”I hate to break it to liberalism’s wolves, but all of us irritating conservatives will continue getting up, knockdown after knockdown, because, as Braveheart’s William Wallace said, “It’s all for nothing if you don’t have freedom.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
