The cabin, as a space that is intimately related to the natural environment and a warmer scale, a space of isolation and reflection; and on the other hand the “hacienda”, as a space that creates its own atmospheres through the courtyards and gardens, which serve to extend the activity from the inside to the outside.Save this picture!© Jorge SuccarSave this picture!Section L-2Save this picture!© Jorge SuccarThe land is much longer than wide, so the architectural program was scattered across the land to generate promenades inside and outside the house. We take advantage of the elongated layout of the land to juxtapose in the narrowest sense the roofed spaces and create complementary open spaces between them.Save this picture!© Jorge SuccarVolumetrically, 3 bodies are generated that are delimited with a very traditional element of the region, the barrel vault. Each of these vaults works like cabins that are transformed according to their location and use. The first works as a house for visitors, a guest room and the room with its fireplace that invites to rest in the double height of access; the second contains family rooms that allow you to have more contact with the surrounding landscape, and finally the third vault fades to a scale closer to the garden, to simply generate a roof that, like a tree, creates shade so that we can enjoy more external activities such as the campfire or the pool.Save this picture!© Jorge SuccarSave this picture!Section T-1Save this picture!© Jorge SuccarWe wanted to generate not only a facade, but a landscape that between solids and voids adapts to a more rural environment, where the vaults and materials dialogue with the open field.Save this picture!© Jorge SuccarProject gallerySee allShow lessAre World’s Fairs a Thing of the Past?

Pasadena’s “Bad Weather Shelter” Ramps Up Now to Prevent Homeless Deaths in Coming El Nino

first_imglatest #1 Pasadena’s “Bad Weather Shelter” Ramps Up Now to Prevent Homeless Deaths in Coming El Nino By THOMAS DANG, Guest Correspondent Published on Thursday, August 20, 2015 | 4:22 am Business News With California in dire need of rainfall, the upcoming El Nino may promise a much wetter winter than usual. The natural phenomenon typically brings twenty-five inches of rain to Downtown Los Angeles each time it comes around. However, meteorologists predict that this winter’s El Nino could be the strongest in over fifty years.Pasadena’s “Bad Weather Shelter,” operated by the nonprofit organization, “Friends In Deed,” is aiming to increase funding in preparation for the imminent El Nino.The idea of the “Bad Weather Shelter” was spurred by multiple deaths of the homeless caused by hypothermia in Los Angeles County.Tracing its roots back to 1986, “The Bad Weather Shelter opened in response to the emergency needs of homeless persons in Pasadena. [The Bad Weather Shelter serves] individuals who for a variety of reasons lack adequate refuge during the cold and wet winter months.”The goal of the shelter is to prevent homeless persons from dying of hypothermia during the coldest part of the year. As such, the Bad Weather Shelter opens the day after Thanksgiving to mid-March whenever the weather forecasts anticipate rain or temperatures below forty degrees.In 2012, the Bad Weather Shelter lost an annual $60,000 contribution by the City of Pasadena due to budget cuts.Fortunately, the then local high school student Rebecca Huang founded the “Friends of the Bad Weather Shelter,” campaign which gathered the necessary donations from private parties such as local businesses and residents to keep the shelter running. The campaign raised over $50,000 in the last three years to enable the shelter to continue its operations.Rebecca was prompted to help the shelter when she found out that nine homeless people died of hypothermia in Los Angeles County, including one person in Pasadena, during the winter of 1986-1987.“When I found out about the shelter from my father [Housing & Career Services Director for the City of Pasadena William Huang] and about its possible closure, I had to at least try to keep the shelter open. If the shelter were to close, these same tragedies could very well occur again, so to me, it is not an option to let a shelter that plays such a vital role close. We, as a community, need to find the funds to keep the shelter operating,” Rebecca states.The high tolerance shelter is weather-activated, basing its operation upon the likelihood of low temperatures or rain. Guests are welcomed for a hot meal and a warm place to sleep if the temperature drops below forty degrees or if there is a forty percent chance of rain.The shelter’s staff is comprised of volunteers and dedicated members, with some having professional experience with homeless service organizations such as Union Station, Lake Avenue Foundation, and Passageways. The shelter is even able to provide “a nurse from Passageways/Pacific Clinics, who provides flu shots, health evaluations and palliative care.”Although the City of Pasadena, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and Los Angeles County Mayor Michael Mike Antonovich have made contributions in the past, the shelter is currently asking for more funds to best prepare for the powerful El Nino.This past July, heavy rain caused a bridge on the Interstate 10 to collapse, foreboding the problems that could very well be underway.Already, a record rainfall of 0.36 inch for the month of July in Downtown Los Angeles has broken the previous 0.25 inch record way back in July 1886.Rebecca concludes, “With a potential El Nino, the shelter will very likely need to be opened significantly more nights than the previous couple of winters. I hope that enough funds can be raised so that the shelter is able to be open every night that it needs to be. We definitely need the entire community, including businesses, to step up and help prepare for a potentially very harsh winter.”Donations for the Bad Weather Shelter can me made directly to Friends in Deed or online at 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Top of the News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

Of those 165 people, 106 are in the United States. The global population is expected to increase by 2.3 billion by 2050. That means the world’s farmers will have to grow about 70 percent more food than what is now produced.So, tomorrow, thank a farmer.

So, Chairman Deborah Huggins-Davis elected to get the committee off to an early start for year 2019-2020.The committee met this week to look back and plan forward.“Randy Hale had led the committee for so long and we greatly depended on him,” Davis told the committee at its July meeting. “Homer Homann was also a great asset to our committee. We will miss their leadership and commitment. I thought it was important for us to meet and get an early start. Farm-City Week is November 22-28 and that’s not that far away.”Davis said the theme for Farm-City Week 2019 is “Keep Alabama Growing” and the Pike County Farm-City Committee is dedicated to that purpose.

The committee is coming off a very successful year with a string of Farm City Awards that is topped with the Best Farm City Committee in Division II. The committee also received the Division Media Coverage/Proclamation Award and the Target Award for adhering to the 2018 theme of “200 Years of Alabama Agriculture.”Davis said expectations are that the committee will be actively committed to “Keep Alabama Growing” as it embarks on a very ambitious schedule of events and activities throughout the year that includes those that have proven to be successful over the years.Topping the list of tried and true events are the annual Farm-City Banquet that recognizes those who have made outstanding contributions to agriculture during the year, Pike County Farm Day at Cattleman Park, Pioneer Days at the Pioneer Museum of Alabama, Classroom in the Forest at Renfroe Farms and Company Day where committee members tour an agriculture-related business.The Pike County Farm City Committee also hosts and supports a variety of other events and activities including Take a Kid Fishing Day, the Peanut Butter Festival Parade, Junior Ambassador Day, Touch-a-Tractor, farm-related displays at the Pike County Fair and local libraries, Junior Ambassador Day, Job Swap and Peanuts to the Public.

Woman, activist, mother series wraps up with panel dedicated to activism balance

first_imgSaint Mary’s invited Dalila Huerta, Lety Stanton-Verduzco and Ameenah Starks to speak at its final woman, activist, mother panel Tuesday night. Each woman plays a vital role in activism within the South Bend community.Huerta currently works at La Casa de Amistad as the education and community programs coordinator and said her work is dedicated to cultural equity, decolonization and critical multicultural pedagogy. Stanton-Verduzco serves as the recruiter trainer for the Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program of St. Joseph County.Starks is the assistant director of the Bowen Center in LaPorte County and works at the Islamic Society of Michiana, where she implements new programs to help reduce the stigma around Muslims in the Michiana community.Each panelist explained how her professional life has heavily influenced her life as an activist. “I have always been a museum arts educator,” Huerta said. “It was right after the [2016 Presidential] election and I was feeling motivated to do a little more within my job. I really wanted to build a relationship with students and at this time there was a job opening at La Casa de Amistad.” Huerta said she felt this would be an opportunity to build deeper relationships with students. “Another thing I really loved about this job opportunity was its commitment to community work and social justice,” she said. “So, bringing and building communities and advocating not just for South Bend but the greater Latinx population here in the United States.”Huerta said it was a big adjustment to pursue a career that wasn’t what she had studied in graduate school. “I do love that I get to do, through my job, a lot of things that I care about the most,” she said.Starks said it is hard for her to separate her life as an activist from her professional life.“Working in the community I began to see different types of people,” she said. “I would just become connected with rich people, poor people in various phases of their lives that were struggling in some situation. It always amazed me because I had just gone through that thing that they were struggling with.”Starks said she turned to God to guide her through her life. “I never planned this path for myself,” she said. “It’s kind of like I’ve been led to everything that I’ve done.”Stanton-Verduzco said her focus was working with children who she believed to be most vulnerable, especially because they can’t advocate for themselves.“I loved working with kids,” she said, “But I realized I only have them from 2:30 to 6:00. I can’t control anything before 2:30 and I can’t control anything after 6:00.”She realized that no matter how she helped them during that time frame, if situations surrounding the children didn’t change she wasn’t helping them as much as she wanted to.“Everything became ‘How do I incorporate what I’m doing to make it better for the families,’” Stanton-Verduzco said. “We started having things like family nights and encouraging parents to come and participate. I saw these little things impacting something greater than just those three hours I had with those kids.”Stanton-Verduzco realized there was a great need in the community and began to bring other people in the community together to train other people in advocating for children. The panelists closed with advice about balancing life, self care and activism.“I think it’s important to be with someone that supports what you do,” Stanton-Verduzco said. “It’s not that we have the same focus or passion, but we have the same values. If I am doing something in the evening, I know it’s not a burden to my family.”Huerta said being mindful helps her in balancing her life.“Make sure you’re doing something valuable and contributing to something,” she said. “I also realize I can’t do everything and it’s okay to say no.”Starks said keeping herself organized is the biggest contributor in a balanced life.“It usually becomes color-coded to let me know what is my time, what is work time and what other times I need to fill in,” she said. “Every month I go and look at what I have done. I have made a commitment that I will work toward my goal.” Tags: activism, Mother, saint mary’s, work-life balancelast_img read more
