The Scholl Residence expands on the ‘Case Study’ series of the 1950’s. The steep site possessed challenges with drainage, topography, a small footprint, restrictive easements and was required to address very limiting neighborhood design review standards. Contextually, the area was developed in the 1960’s and surrounding residents were quite resistant to the architectural direction. Although the neighborhood is one of transition, this was the greatest challenge in realizing the project.

The interiors consist of darkened oak flooring, cantilevered pickled oak stairs and floors, European engineered cabinetry, Carerra marble, porcelain tile shower enclosures and integral plaster walls and ceilings.

Algunas reflexiones sobre el juicio político de Dilma Rousseff

No Comments

first_imgTarde en la noche del domingo 18 de abril, se dieron a conocer los resultados de la votación para un proceso de destitución contra la presidente de Brasil, Dilma Rousseff. Después de aproximadamente seis horas de votación, la cámara baja del Congreso tuvo 367 votos “Sí” contra 137 “No” y 7 abstenciones, más de los dos tercios necesarios para proceder con el juicio.Esto significa que el proceso continuará en el Senado en unas pocas semanas, donde una mayoría simple debe decidir el resultado final, y por lo tanto, el futuro de la presidencia de Rousseff. Mientras el caso se ve en el Senado, la presidente Rousseff debe ser removida de su posición y el vicepresidente, Michel Temer, asumiría la presidencia.Ella podría apelar a la Corte Suprema, pero teniendo en cuenta que la misma Corte rechazó anteriormente anular la consideración del juicio político, no es seguro que decidiría a su favor.Atmósfera de circoEl largo proceso de votación del domingo evocaba la atmósfera de un circo o un evento deportivo. Cada legislador/a tenía 10 segundos para hacer una declaración después de emitir su voto en voz alta. Había cobertura en vivo y podía ser visto a través de varios sitios web.Como actores ganadoras/es en una noche de los Oscar, la mayoría mencionó sus familiares, sus seres queridos, ciudades, dios o su país como la razón de su voto. Las/os que votaron “Sí” no hicieron mención alguna sobre de la legitimidad del juicio político.Aplausos y gritos se escucharon e incluso confeti fue disparado con una pistola de juguete después de un voto “Sí”, mientras que el silencio seguía a los “No”. Definitivamente semejaba a un circo de gladiadores contra Rousseff.Detrás del espectáculo, una acción más preocupante se llevaba a cabo: la absoluta ilegitimidad del juicio político. Incluso Luis Almagro, el secretario general de la OEA, no precisamente una organización progresista, escribió en una declaración: “Nuestra Organización ha realizado un análisis detallado del proceso de juicio político en contra de Dilma, y ha llegado a la conclusión de que no se ajusta a las normas que rigen este proceso.No hay ninguna acusación penal contra la Presidente; más bien ha sido acusada de mala administración de los recursos públicos en 2014. Esta es una acusación que es de carácter político, y que no merece un proceso de destitución”. (OAS.org)Peor aún, el mismo vicepresidente Temer, del conservador Partido del Movimiento Democrático Brasileño, e instigador del juicio político contra Rousseff junto al presidente del Congreso Eduardo Cunha, ha sido implicado en el escándalo de corrupción conocido como Lava Jato.Y Eduardo Cunha, el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, un político evangélico derechista que abrió el proceso de juicio político, está siendo investigado por el Tribunal Supremo por corrupción y lavado de dinero, acusado de recibir $5 millones en sobornos de una empresa de construcción relacionada con Petrobras, la empresa petrolera brasileña.Muchos otros legisladores también son objeto de investigación. A los ojos de muchas/os brasileños, la credibilidad del Parlamento es cero. Severa crisisEl gobierno y el propio país se encuentran en una crisis política, económica y social grave.El proceso para la destitución se ha seguido de cerca no sólo por las/os residentes del país, sino por el mercado global. Un artículo de Bloomberg del 17 de abril, titulado “Brazil Investor Impeachment Euphoria Fades as Quickly as It Came” (La euforia del impeachment de los inversores en Brasil se desvanece tan rápidamente como vino), declaró que “Los inversores han acumulado activos brasileños este año esperando que la destitución de Rousseff permita a un nuevo gobierno aprobar medidas dirigidas a sacar la mayor economía de América Latina de su peor recesión en un siglo y hacer frente a un explosivo déficit presupuestario. Pero la gravedad de los problemas significa que su probable sucesor – el vicepresidente Michel Temer – tendrá poco margen de error”.Algunas de las políticas del gobierno de Rousseff han afectado negativamente a la población. Estas incluyen medidas neoliberales de privatización y recortes. El Partido de los Trabajadores ha debilitado sus lazos con las masas, incluso desde la administración del ex presidente Lula da Silva. La economía, sin embargo, estaba en mejor salud en ese tiempo y mientras hacía alianzas con la clase capitalista rica de Brasil, su administración fue capaz de poner en práctica programas que mejoraron el nivel de vida de millones de personas que vivían en extrema pobreza.Y aunque aún hay apoyo para el PT, no es suficiente para contrarrestar el ataque de la derecha.En una entrevista de la revista virtual argentina, Página 12, João Pedro Stédile, coordinador del Movimiento de los Sin Tierra, MST, dijo:“Un gobierno de Michel Temer y su partido, el Partido Movimiento Democrático Brasileño, representa el proyecto de las elites. Lo que está en juego el regreso al neoliberalismo. Ellos necesitan voltear a Dilma para esa restauración neoliberal, es ese el elemento central de este momento de la lucha de clases que se intensificó. La votación del impeachment es fundamental porque explicita los intereses de las clases dominantes y su decisión de descargar en las clases trabajadoras los perjuicios de la crisis económica mundial”.Este proceso de destitución podría traer un resurgimiento de la izquierda en un movimiento progresista. Esto incluiría tanto las fuerzas alineadas con Rousseff, Lula y el PT, como a quienes siguen siendo críticos, pero se oponen a la derecha. Su objetivo sería la construcción de una propuesta verdaderamente democrática para el país, que tenga al pueblo en el centro y no a los financieros y las corporaciones.Que tal movimiento podría tener apoyo se muestra en las protestas contra el juicio político llevadas a cabo los días previos a la votación en muchas ciudades y en la plaza frente al Congreso.Y como dijo Stédile en la entrevista anterior, “Se deben rearticular y producir un gigantesco movimiento de masas para formular nuevas alternativas”.

Several journalists beaten up after covering a corruption case

They were covering corruption implicating Bui Tien Dung, managing director of the infrastructure agency PMU18 which comes under the transport ministry.The company head allegedly embezzled more than seven million dollars (nearly six million euros) of foreign aid from Official Development Assistance (ODA) to bet on European football matches.“We note the authorities’ promise to boost security for journalists and we ask them to ensure that police identify those responsible for this violence,” the press freedom organisation said.A journalist on the daily Thanh Nien was beaten up on 23 March 2006 when he was taking photos of the arrest of Nguyen Mau Thon, an officer in the dummy company, Viet Hoa, which was managing the money embezzled by Bui Tien Dung. His attackers – young men suspected of being in the pay of the company head – repeatedly elbowed the journalist in the stomach and smashed his head on the ground. They stopped him from taking pictures of the arrival of the deputy transport minister, Nguyen Viet Tien, also accused of having covered up the fraud.“It is very likely that some shady powerful figure is behind this and is paying these gangs to maltreat journalists and prevent them from doing their job,” said Tien Thanh, the deputy editor of the weekly Doi Song Phap Luat, which also had a journalist attacked. He was struck in the face and had his camera stolen when he tried to take photos of the company’s deputy head, Vu Manh Tien. “This case has put journalists very much at risk,” he said.Police have taken legal action against these “delinquents”, some of whom have been stationed outside the homes of Bui Tien Dung and those of other people involved in the case to dissuade journalists from doing their job. Police have also told Thanh Nien that there will be special security around police stations where those implicated in the case, including the deputy transport minister, are interrogated.

first_img MyanmarAsia – Pacific Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar MyanmarAsia – Pacific Organisation Receive email alerts Sein Win, who suffered from lung cancer, was admitted to Rangoon’s private Shwegondaing Hospital early yesterday where he died just before midnight. Born on 13 August in the central city of Mandalay, Sein Win was educated at Lafon Memorial High School and Mandalay and Rangoon universities. He began his journalism career in 1964 at Ludu Newspaper, which was banned by the military junta in 1967.He was arrested and sentenced to 13 years’ imprisonment, which he served first on Coco Island in the south, before being moved to Insein Prison in Rangoon in 1971. He was released in 1976, then arrested again soon afterwards and jailed for a further four years.He was freed in 1980 after suffering a heart attack, which left him partially paralysed for the rest of his life.Besides writing on politics for several weekly and monthly publications, such as Weekly Eleven Journal to which he contributed from 2005, in his books he turned his attention to topics such as ethics, youth, journalism and love.Frequently critical of the military government, in particular in interviews he gave to Burmese media outlets in exile, he used 15 different pen names and his work was frequently censored by the junta. In 2006, his name was removed from a list of the leading Burmese personalities of 2005 published by Weekly Eleven Journal. In March 2008, his work was banned completely from all publications on the orders of the government censor board, after he made highly critical comments about the government and called for the overthrow of the dictatorship by a popular movement: “Believe in the Burmese people’s heroism. Believe in People Power.

With his death we have lost not only a shining example of Burmese journalism, but also a courageous fighter for democracy and press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Man of letters, committed intellectual and prolific journalist, Sein Win worked tirelessly for the betterment of his fellow citizens.

Release of human rights blogger who was under house arrest

first_img RSF_en August 19, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Release of human rights blogger who was under house arrest 20 August 2009Reporters Without Borders was relieved to learn in a telephone interview with Zhao Hun (who blogs under the name of Mo Zhixu) today that his house arrest has been lifted. However, the press freedom organisation will pay close attention to the treatment Mo Zhixu receives as the authorities prepare to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China on 1 October.—–19 August 2009Reporters Without Borders deplores the fact that writer Zhao Hun (who blogs under the name of Mo Zhixu) was placed under house arrest yesterday in Beijing. Zhao Hun, who writes about human rights and signed the December 2008 appeal for democracy known as “Charter 08″, had just been elected by the Independent Chinese Pen Centre to head its next session. “This decision to place Zhao Hun under house arrest shows that the government wants to silence all dissent as it prepares to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China on 1 October”, Reporters Without Borders said. “Furthermore, the authorities have made no attempt to explain their action.”Aged 20 in 1989, Zhao belongs to the generation that participated in the Beijing Spring and was one of the founders of one of China’s most influential blogs, “Bulldog”, which is currently blocked. His home was raided and searched on 3 March, as he was preparing to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the June 1989 crackdown on the student movement.Along with 19 other Chinese intellectuals, Zhao Hun participated in a seminar in Beijing on 10 May on the subject of “The Democracy Movement since 1989″.It is suspected that the decision to place him under house arrest may have been prompted by his election by members of the Independent Chinese Pen Centre (ICPC), an independent writers organisation, to head its next session. Or it could be in response to his support for other dissidents.An article in Chinese on the “Chinese Human Rights website” points out that he was previously placed under house arrest for 10 days immediately prior to the arrest of fellow ICPC member and fellow Charter 08 signatory Liu Xiaobo on 8 December 2008.Zhao Hun was also summoned for questioned by the Beijing authorities on 28 July, the day prior to the arrest of another human rights activist, Xu Zhiyong, the founder of the NGO Gongmeng.Another CIPC member, Uyghur blogger Ilham Tohti, has been held since the rioting in Xinjiang province in July.
