BoA said that it would request permission for a “modest” dividend hike in the summer.

La Iglesia dominicana apoya a descendientes de haitianos

first_imgLa Iglesia dominicana apoya a descendientes de haitianos Cientos de miles pueden convertirse en apátridas Rector Washington, DC [Episcopal News Service] Dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana pueden convertirse en apátridas luego que el tribunal constitucional de la República Dominicana declaró sin derecho a la ciudadanía a los hijos de inmigrantes haitianos nacidos en la República Dominicana.Debido a la sentencia del tribunal, cientos de miles de descendientes de inmigrantes, la mayoría provenientes de Haití, que nacieron en la República Dominicana, ya no serán reconocidos como ciudadanos, dijo Julio Holguín, obispo [episcopal] de la República Dominicana, en un correo electrónico a ENS el 25 de octubre.“Creo que el Tribunal Constitucional ha cometido un grave error con esa sentencia, ya que vulnera los derechos de por lo menos 4 generaciones de descendientes de inmigrantes, cuya mayoría vino a la República Dominicana, mediante acuerdo entre ambos gobiernos, dominicano y haitiano, para trabajar principalmente en el corte de la caña, para la industria azucarera” dijo el Obispo.La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana sirve a comunidades haitianas en sus parroquias y misiones de todo el país. La edición de Noviembre-Diciembre de Episcopax, el periódico de la diócesis, dedica un espacio importante a defender los derechos de los dominicanos de ascendencia haitiana.La República Dominicana, con una población de 10,2 millones de habitantes, y Haití, con una población de 9,8 millones, comparten la isla de La Española. La República Dominicana es ligeramente más grande, ya que ocupa el 64 por ciento de la mitad oriental de la isla. Durante décadas, los haitianos han trabajado en los campos de caña de la República Dominicana, como empleados domésticos y en otros empleos no especializados.El 23 de septiembre, el tribunal constitucional del país, en una sentencia de 11 a favor y 2 en contra, dictaminó que la cláusula relativa a los ciudadanos en la Constitución dominicana de 1929 no debía aplicarse a los hijos de padres que no eran “residentes legales” en el momento del nacimiento de sus hijos y, además, que a subsecuentes generaciones nacidas en suelo dominicano también debía negárseles la ciudadanía.Se calcula que unas 200.000 personas de padres haitianos viven en la República Dominicana. El 24 de octubre, el tribunal instruyó a las autoridades locales a “auditar todos los registros civiles de la nación hasta junio de 1929 para determinar quiénes ya no tienen derecho a la ciudadanía”, según un artículo publicado en The New York Times.Como Holguín explicó, la sentencia del tribunal invalida no sólo los certificados de nacimiento, sino que también cuestiona la validez de otras formas de identificación, incluidos los pasaportes, y podría inhibir la capacidad de matricular en una escuela o en la universidad, de abrir una cuenta bancaria, de comprar una casa, etc.“En otras palabras, el tribunal constitucional ha decidido establecer un ‘apartheid’ en la República Dominicana” afirmó él.– Lynette Wilson es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

In keeping with the clients desire for a strictly Vastu compliant house, the placement of spaces in the house are in synch with the plan of the Vastu Purusha Mandala (the ancient Indian science of orientation and placement). Thus apart from positioning the main areas of the house according to the elements – Master bedroom in the Earth zone (SW), kitchen in the Fire zone (SE), and the pool and entrance in the Water zone and Air zones (N and NE), – even positions of doors, the direction of the stairs, location of beds, wardrobes and desks and the positions of the wc’s in the bathrooms had to be in accordance with the correct energy flows. In all other respects however, the clients gave us complete aesthetic freedom.

Our approach was to respond to the traditional science, extract its essence yet arrive at a fresh and innovative interpretation of the same. The house, built on gentle split-levels ascends lazily from north east (the lowest point) to the southwest (highest point). Its linear horizontal lines and vast cantilevered roof forms weave around the resident trees, and large expanses of glass blur the spatial boundaries between the garden and the house. One experiences a sense of infinity while walking though the open plan of the living spaces, which are demarcated from one another by sliding, bi-fold doors and in some cases no barrier at all. Save this picture!The house has two entrances. The private one faces a serene residential lane and the other looks on to a noisy main road. The house is located near the quiet lane, and the home – office is located near the main road. The home office acts as a sound barrier and while one is in the house nestled within an almost unbroken canopy of old trees one cannot perceive the cacophony of the main road. Instead of having conventionally demarcated spaces, the house spontaneously responds to its surroundings by choosing to dwell upon lovely views from strategically placed rooms. Save this picture!A linear hand chiseled stonewall and a low water body finished in lime green slate leads to the intimate foyer. A solid wall of Quera granite separate it from the living area. The informal intimate lounge area connected by a small flight of stairs with the living space faces a serene courtyard but also enjoys views of the garden and a vast lily pool. Large bifold doors open the living room into the open court, where gentle steps chiseled out of local quera granite lead you to an open to sky courtyard with a single ornamental tree perched in its centre. Save this picture!The verandah surrounding the internal courtyard has a sloping vernacular Mangalore tiled roof. The column supports for this roof are innovative. Load is transferred via large diagonal steel struts onto the hand chiseled stone columns. An outdoor dining table takes advantage of the temperate climate of Bangalore where living and dining in semi –outdoor spaces can be more pleasurable than sitting indoors. The dining area is separated from the court by a channel of water flowing from south to north. Save this picture!The Vastu house is climate sensitive and takes advantage of Bangalore’s temperate climate all year round. Large overhangs combat the fierce monsoons; the southwestern facades of the house are shielded from the fierce summer sun, with the north side completely transparent to the property’s lush tropical foliage. In every space there is free movement of air and light. A flight of wooden stairs leads you from the courtyard to the Master Suite on the first floor. The Master Suite has a large sit out, an attached gym, walk in closets and a courtyard bathroom filled with natural light. Save this picture!There is an interesting mix of luxe and natural elements in the Vastu house – rough stone steps, pebbled courts, exposed concrete ceilings and polished cement floors contrast well with polished Italian marble, fine teak furniture, velvets and silks. The predominantly white facades of the exterior are broken with select walls in rough hewn stone while some interior accent walls are deliberately punched out in saturated Indian colours – deep magenta, orange and neel blue. The garden with a lap pool on one side has an outdoor dining area with a 15ft rough-cut log as the table. Here one can dine under the giant banyan tree with layers of tropical planting surrounding you.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessZaha Hadid named UNESCO Artist for PeaceArticlesWood Pavilion / Wing Yi Hui + Lap Ming WongArticles Share Area:  2148 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Projects “COPY” CopyHouses•India ArchDailylast_img read more

This agricultural property in Sonoma is owned by two scientists. The husband often works inside, but also prefers alternative work locations where for his laptop computer. The wife is involved with a number of agricultural projects, keeping olive orchards, harvesting olives and making olive oil; bee keeping; extensive gardening and various other endeavors that take advantage of Sonoma’s beautiful climate, soils and siting. Embracing the “locavore” movement, the wife brings her olives and honey to local markets and restaurants. Save this picture!© Elliot Kaufman PhotographyThe 25-acre site of the original house had no real infrastructure and met none of the new code requirements for water conservation and fire safety, and did not provide adequate power for farm use. The client requested a new structure that would take advantage of the site’s hillside views, while reflecting their modest lifestyle so deeply engaged with outdoor life. They also requested that the new structure be “off the grid”, with all utilities buried, and that site improvements be implemented to avoid erosion. Save this picture!PlanProgram and Spatial Development The house, only 850 sqf, is situated towards the top of an olive orchard. The siting takes advantage of the prevailing breezes and shade, while utilizing an existing open area so that no trees were removed. The goal was to create an energy efficient, compact dwelling where the clients could sit in shady areas, entertain, and enjoy views across the local agricultural lands. Save this picture!© Elliot Kaufman PhotographyLayout and materials The house is organized on three levels that descend with the hillside. The entry level contains a full hallway bath as well as a bedroom with a bathroom and balcony. The mezzanine contains the kitchen and an eating counter, with a direct connection to a dining deck at the same level. On the lower level is the living room at grade with an adjacent deck. Floors, steps, and wall tile are a soft grey limestone. The woodwork is oak, stained grey with inserts of clear acrylic resin. The resin catches sunlight as it moves across the cabinetry face. The metal is painted steel and the countertops a grey eco-composite. Save this picture!© Elliot Kaufman PhotographyThe exterior is predominantly light-grey zinc expressed in horizontal panels with 3/8” joints running horizontally and overlapping joints in the vertical direction. There are some minimal areas of redwood, stained grey as a detail on the south and east facades. The window system is custom, with steel mullions painted grey to match the zinc. Slatted, redwood sunscreens for the bedroom and entry deck provide texture, privacy, and shading. Horizontal skylights over the stair bring daylight to the interior while mitigating heat gain with a ceramic frit. Save this picture!© Elliot Kaufman PhotographyFurnishings are mostly custom built-in pieces as the room dimensions are small, and space must be used in a highly efficient manner. A more luxurious, large shower with 10-foot high glass overlooking the hillside, celebrates the view, and brings the outside indoors as a part of the residents’ functional lives. Save this picture!© Elliot Kaufman PhotographyThe house is at once grand and intimate. We concentrated the limited square footage in a few select areas so that each actually seems quite generous. There are openings between levels so that one is able to converse easily and experience the view from a series of places within the house, from a secret window seat with a sliver window to the north to the large expansive view from the living room. Details like hidden closets and storage recesses are meant to delight the user with the confluence of efficiency and aesthetics.Save this picture!© Elliot Kaufman PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessManzana de las Luces and the Environment Proposal / ESTUDIO AISENSON + SMFArticlesFootball Stadium / DATA ArchitectsArticles Share United States Small House in Olive Grove / Wendy Evans Joseph ArchitectureSave this projectSaveSmall House in Olive Grove / Wendy Evans Joseph Architecture “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/170933/small-house-in-olive-grove-wendy-evans-joseph-architecture Clipboardlast_img read more

Strato Castor« There’s a blackberry bush of this type upstream to Stamper house, a very dense thicket, so tangled and bushy, that even bears bypass it : around the bones left by deer and covered with moss, and the mooses that get caught up when they try to clear a pass through, stands a wall of spines that seems to be totally impenetrable.(…)When the spring’s sun used to shine above the blackberry bush, the light would filter through the leaves, enough for Hank to clear path, and he would spend hours on all fours, exploring the feasible ways. »Ken Kesey, Sometimes A Great Notion (Et quelquefois j’ai une grande idée), Monsieur Toussaint Louverture, p.136.Save this picture!© Julien LanooSave this picture!SectionTo Divert a House (like we divert rivers)The residents have prefered to enlarge their home rather than moving elsewhere, as they are in love with their neighborhood. Raised by one floor, the Castor House (Maison Castor ) stands out from a row of brick houses, semi-detached and symetric. As if it has grown overnight, it finds itself covered by a surprising new level wearing a tangle of wooden battens strangely reminding of an animal house. The elevation, with its simple geometry and proportions, is similar to a Monopoly house : four sides, pitched roof. Recognizable at first glance, it expresses the familiar image of the small house in the urban zones. Painted in red-orange metallic color, the covering, as a superposition of anarchic trellises, covers the added building.Save this picture!© Pierre RogeauxSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!ReferencePerched above the roofs and graphically separated from the whole, the volume set gives an impression of lightness. Twigs set down by the wind or brought one by one by an industrious animal, the chaotic hatchings stop short in the roofs alignment of neighboring houses. The adjoining twinning is disrupted, but respected. The harmony is restored by color reminders on the woodworks and the gate.Evident FantasySimple elevation in appearance, the house transformation is a true rehabilitation. Emptied as a shell, the original façade is used as both a base and a case which welcomes the new building within it. The interior structure offers an enhanced insulation for a better energy performance. The protective effect given by the extension’s  envelope is thus affecting the entire housing.Save this picture!© Pierre RogeauxThe elevation has two openings at the front. A clear window captures maximum brightness, while the battens spread over the other window and hide it from inquisitive looks. From the inside, the residents benefit day after day from the infinite variation of the light, as filtered through the branches. Save this picture!© Julien LanooFull of contrasts, the Castor House (Maison Castor) offers a subtle mixture of vegetable and mineral, animal and urban, personal and collective. It appears in total opposition to the urban context: an environment without excess, where the housing is strictly functional. It is also against the current trend, which is to raise by putting in a minimalist parallelepiped on the existing. For both the residents and the architects, the Castor House (Maison Castor) is a gesture of poetry and fantasy, a position statement, a mark of generosity. This is a slightly absurd proposal to enlarge its nest.Save this picture!ScantlingProject gallerySee allShow lessSunset Strip Billboard Competition Finalists Include Zaha Hadid and GenslerArchitecture NewsHome Economics: Inside the British Pavilion at the 2016 Venice BiennaleArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/789337/house-ab-extension-dhoundt-plus-bajart-architects-and-associates Clipboard ArchDaily 2014 Francelast_img read more

Images courtesy LASDThe 45-year-old man shot and killed as he drove along an Altadena street on Feb. 16 has been identified, but his killer, as well as the motive behind the shooting, remain unknown, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department told Pasadena Now on Wednesday.The L.A. County Coroner identified the man as Tracy LeBlue of Altadena. The coroner’s report said he died of gunshot wounds to the chest and neck.According to Pasadena Police Department Public Information Officer Lt. William Grisafe, LeBlue was arrested on felony drug charges in 2018 and 2019.LeBlue also was arrested on a pair of misdemeanor driving matters in Pasadena in 2017, Grisafe said.One other connection LeBlue had to Pasadena was of a more routine nature – he received a $1,325 payout from the city in 2019 to cover damage his vehicle suffered when it hit a pothole, the city’s public information officer, Lisa Derderian, said Wednesday.As best as police can piece together for now, LeBlue was driving along Canyada Avenue near Figueroa Drive around 1 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 16, when multiple shots were fired at his vehicle.Lt. Alex Canchola of the Sheriff’s Department’s Altadena station told Pasadena Now it was still unknown if the shooter was in another vehicle or on foot. The Sheriff’s Department’s homicide division is still investigating, Canchola said.“They have some leads they’re working on,’’ Canchola said.Last week, Canchola advised the Altadena Town Council that the victim appeared to have been targeted, rather the victim of a random act.Canchola also said his station’s gang unit is not classifying LeBlue’s death as gang-related. The area where the shooting took place is not known for gang activity, Canchola said.“It’s still under investigation – it might be that (gang-related), it might be a love triangle, it could be a business dispute, at this point it’s completely unknown,’’ Canchola said. “There’s no clear motive.”Canchola also said that LeBlue’s age – 45 – would lead him to believe this was not a gang-related matter.As Canchola told the Altadena Council last week, “On (Feb. 16), at approximately 1 o’clock, our station received a call of shots fired and a person down in the 500 block of Figueroa. Upon arrival, we found a single male (meaning, alone) suffering from a gunshot wound. The Fire Department responded, transported him immediately to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.’’According to one report, LeBlue drove about a block and a half before stopping in the 500 block of Figueroa, with a resident attempting to treat him while waiting for first responders.As deputies were investigating the scene in the 500 block of Figueroa, evidence led them to a house a few blocks away, in the 2300 block of Canyada, where the incident may have begun, Canchola said.“While the deputies were containing the area, they discovered that there was some possible evidence from where the origin of this shooting occurred, which was about two blocks south of Figueroa, and that would have been the 2300 block of Canyada,’’ Canchola said.Canchola said that “at least two people were questioned’’ at the possible origin site, but that no arrests were made.“There (was) a great deal of physical evidence in and around the area which is being investigated now, and there’s also other information that we’re following up on, on various leads,’’ Canchola said.
