O2 Inside Line – Haskell Cam in QueenstownO2 Inside Line – Haskell Cam in Queenstown

first_imgFriday Sep 16, 2011 O2 Inside Line – Haskell Cam in Queenstown O2 Inside Line is back this week with another brilliant episode of Haskell Cam, as we go behind the scenes and into the England camp as the squad explore the sights and sounds of New Zealand. Expect to see plenty of banter, some bungee jumping, and Dylan Hartley’s new car. There’s been a bit of talk this week about the antics of the England team while on tour in Queenstown. Mike Tindall in particular came under stick for allegedly taking part in a few extra mural activities while in a bar on a night out after the Argentina win. Coach and 2003 World Cup winner Martin Johnson downplayed the incident.“The manager of the bar has said the England players, their behaviour was perfectly acceptable all through the evening,” Johnson said. “The players said ‘we are going to go out for a beer on Sunday night’, I said it was a great idea. You’ve got to relieve the pressure, let off steam at the right time.“We all know when you’ve got a rugby team, part of it is the bonding off the field as well. I don’t want to get to the stage where we are locking ourselves away in hotels. They (the players) understand, no-one likes to be on the front page of papers. They know their responsibilities.“If we get to the point where you can’t go out because someone is going to film you and point the finger at you, it’s a pretty sad place. They’ve gone out for a drink. That’s what they’ve done: rugby player drinks beer, shocker,” Johnson said.The players have certainly been bonding and having a good time, which as another World Cup winner, Will Greenwood, says is essential to their success. “A happy rugby player is a better rugby player,” said Greenwood last night.This episode of Haskell Cam is a classic, with plenty of laughs. Ugliest players, steepest streets, boring groups, and jumping off bridges, it’s all there. Enjoy.

Location Save this picture!© Sergio GomezThis building articulates itself to the ecosystem of a tropical dry forest located in the shoreline of the Caribbean Sea in Córdoba, a department situated in the north of Colombia. Historically, this area has been victim of extensive deforestations, thanks to constant cattle raising activities, and the massive extraction of timber trees. This situation has highly affected the mangroves and their vast biological diversity. Save this picture!© Sergio GomezMaterials With this in mind, this house presents itself as an open and modulated structure that, to avoid the use of the native woods, is built on cultivated, immunized and certified Caribbean Pine timber, treated with sustainable practices. Before thinking about a structure that can resist certain efforts and charges, we thought about a structure that can be pierced and permeated by its surroundings. The structural and modular possibilities of the constructive system we chose would eventually give form to certain technical, tectonic and geometric aspects of the building, such as the tilted braced columns, the heights of the platform and roof, the length of the spans, etc. In accordance to local traditional techniques of construction, the roof was built using the branches of the “Palma Amarga” (Sabal mauritiiformis). The building’s enclosure elements are made of stems of the “palmalata” plant (Bactris guineensis). Both of these plants can be managed with controlled individual extractions. In order to make the timber structure more rigid, we built a reinforced concrete base. With this material we also defined some elements and fixtures on the ground floor, such as a sofa, the stairs, and a secondary table. Save this picture!© Sergio GomezWeather and Bioclimatics Save this picture!© Sergio GomezRio Cedro has warm weather throughout the entire year, and only one strong rain season yearly. Taking this under consideration we proposed an open and permeable design that allows passive cooling, via crossed ventilations. The 30 centimeters width of the roof and its organic material guarantee both, temperature control and impermeability against the rain. In this way, we create precise bioclimatic qualities: We avoid the heat and humidity by directing the flow of the wind, and we define constant shade through the design of the roof and by the building’s orientation towards the sun: (the main facades face the north and the south). Program and Space Save this picture!© Sergio GomezFollowing certain local construction strategies, the house is defined with an elevated and open social ground floor that acts like a covered platform that includes all the areas for the daylight activities. The living room, dining room, and hammock areas can all trade places on the same plane. In the first floor we find a lower profile around the perimeter, this defines a more intimate space designed for the night activities. In this floor you can enjoy the view of the intricate weave of the branches in the inner slopes of the roof. Once again we create a platform in which beds and small furniture can be moved around or even increase its numbers to enhance capacity. The difference between the levels provides a separation from the daylight and nocturnal activities, allowing a house that is pierced by the vegetation and weather on the ground floor, but with more control and restraint on the second level.

Grzywinski + Pons designed the building, the interiors, and much of the furniture. Located on an infill lot in a classically gritty LES tenement block, the property — while very narrow — is block-through and as such has frontage on both Allen and Orchard Streets. In order to accommodate the allowable floor area on such a narrow footprint, we bifurcated the mass on the north-south axis creating a slender ten-storey tower on the Allen Street side (a far wider thoroughfare with arresting skyline views) and a five-story volume on narrow Orchard Street which are contiguous in plan. While the west facing tower isn’t strictly non-contextual (there are a few other far bulkier “finger buildings” on the block) we did see the upper portion of our tower as heterogeneous and decided to design the building accordingly. By treating the top five floors conceptually as a vertical augmentation to the neighborhood’s historical typology we elected to create a different skin for it.Save this picture!SectionWhile we didn’t want to pretend the “base building” wasn’t brand new, we wanted the first five floors to pay homage to the existing masonry and stucco tenement neighbors. We clad the first five floors in handmade coal-fired brick and designed our own take on rusticated masonry details. Deeply framed glazing adds to the facade’s texture while mitigating solar heat gain and the skin reacts to the sun’s path throughout the day in a softly graphic way. We chose bricks that subtly change hue as the building rises until they closely match the cladding of the volume above. The upper part of the tower — the volume beyond the rooftops of the adjacent buildings — is clad in zinc panels which are then surrounded by a veil of louvers. While their primary purpose is — like the window boxes below — to mitigate solar heat gain, the louvers also serve as balustrades to the balconies, create extra depth in the facade, yield kinetic shadow play and obfuscate externalized mechanical components. The colors, proportions and textures of the two envelopes reference one another and are more like siblings than strangers.Save this picture!© Nicholas WorleyOn the interior we decided to celebrate the steel structure by exposing it wherever possible which helpfully yielded more width within the constrained lot. Those girders, columns, bolts and junction plates coupled with block and masonry are balanced with a collection of warm, soft and luxurious finishes, fabrics and furnishings. We were conscious of the depth of the spaces and the special character the light has when it stretches through the interiors; grazing walls, upholstery, bedding and tile. We designed them all in such a way to extol the virtues of that long light. Cozy, comfortable, intimate rooms but with a sense of drama and a real reflection of context. These are rooms in the heart of the Lower East Side and, as pampered as one might be within them, we wouldn’t want you to think you were anywhere else.Save this picture!© Nicholas WorleySave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Nicholas WorleyProject gallerySee allShow lessMumbai Plans for World’s First Slum MuseumArchitecture NewsLeonardo DiCaprio, Eco-Tourism, and Blackadore Caye: Has Green Building Jumped the S…ArticlesProject locationAddress:120 Allen St, New York, NY 10002, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Lavender & Red, Part 66: At the Stonewall Rebellion, crowd rage ignitesLavender & Red, Part 66: At the Stonewall Rebellion, crowd rage ignites

first_imgLeslie Feinberg’s 120-part series on connections between LGBTQ and socialist history, “Lavender & Red,” appeared in Workers World newspaper from 2004 to 2008, and is available for free download at Feinberg speaking for freedom for Mumia Abu-Jamal, Town Hall, New York City, 1999.A number of accounts of the confrontation between cops and the crowd outside the Stonewall Bar mark the prolonged struggle between police and a cross-dressed butch lesbian as a qualitative turning point. According to Village Voice journalist Howard Smith, “It was at that moment that the scene became explosive.” Smith wrote that the crowd roared: “Police brutality! Pigs!” Gino, a Puerto Rican construction worker, joining in the shouts of “Let her go! Leave her alone!” reportedly dislodged a loose cobblestone and heaved it across Christopher Street. Eyewitness Steve Yates remembered, “It landed on the trunk of a police car with a terrible screech, ‘scaring the shit’ out of a policeman who was standing next to the car.” According to Stonewall employee Harry Beard, one or more people in the crowd were able to slash all four tires on the police cruiser with the butch lesbian prisoner inside.Raymond “Ray” Castro, a Puerto Rican baker, recalled how he fought his own arrest. “At that point I started pushing back and wound up with two plainclothes police pushing me. The next thing I know, there’s two plainclothes cops and two uniformed police in the melee. I was knocked to the ground by one of their billy clubs, [which,] put between my legs, tripped me. At that point the handcuffs got put on me, and they had a [police] wagon right in front of the entrance to the Stonewall. When I got shoved up to the door of the [police] wagon, I had two policemen on each side of me. I didn’t quite go willingly into the [police] wagon. I didn’t want to be arrested. Even though I was handcuffed, I jumped up and [put] one foot on the right side of the door and one foot on the left of the door. I sprung up like a jumping jack and pushed backwards, knocking the police down to the ground, almost against the wall of the Stonewall. Well, they finally dragged me into the [police] wagon.”Tom, a participant, remembered Ray battling against arrest. “A couple more were thrown into the van. We joined in with some who wanted to storm the van, free those inside, then turn over the van. But nobody was yet prepared for that kind of action. Then a scuffle at the door. One guy refused to be put into the van. Five or six cops guarding the van tried to subdue him with little success. Several guys tried to help free him. Unguarded, three or four of those in the van appeared then quickly disappeared into the crowd. This was all anyone needed.”As police hurriedly tried to load other prisoners into the police wagon, one 18-year-old participant saw “a leg in nylons and sporting a high heel shoot out of the back of the [police] wagon into the chest of a cop, throwing him backward. Another queen then opened the door on the side of the wagon and jumped out. The cops chased and caught her, but Blond Frankie [who worked the door at the Stonewall] quickly managed to engineer another escape from the car; several queens successfully made their way out with him and were swallowed up in the crowd.” (Duberman,“Stonewall”)Michael Fader reported seeing the cops “leave the van unattended — the doors were open, so they left. That raised the emotional level, the excitement of them getting away.”The multinational crowd of hundreds massed around the police was made up of those brave enough and angry enough at oppression to be drawn to a confrontation with the police. Stonewall combatant Sylvia Rivera stressed a very important point about the rebellion that ensued. Rivera was a Venezuelan and Puerto Rican transgender youth who had lived homeless on the streets of Manhattan since she was 10 years old. Before her death, she stressed the role in the rebellion of the homeless gay/trans street youth — Black, Latinx and white and gender-defiant — who could not afford the Stonewall door admission charge or the overpriced, watered-down drinks. The vest-pocket park across the street from the bar was their home. (Personal interview, 1997)Rivera emphasized that at the moment of ignition of the rebellion, “It was street gay people from the Village out front — homeless people who lived in the park in Sheridan Square outside the bar — and then drag queens behind them and everybody behind us.” (Feinberg, “Trans Liberation: Beyond Pink or Blue”)Danny Garvin described how police tried to push back those gathered around them. This allowed the crowd to make an important discovery: a big stack of new bricks at a Seventh Avenue South construction site. Garvin explained, “They would come at us with nightsticks, and we would have to disperse onto Seventh Avenue, where the people were able to see the bricks.”Deputy Inspector Seymour Pine, who led the raid, ordered police to drive off quickly with prisoners in the police wagon and three cop cruisers and “just drop them off at the Sixth Precinct and hurry back.”People in the crowd around the police wagon began beating on its sides, demanding to know the names of those imprisoned inside. According to Voice reporter Lucian Truscott, “A cry went up to push the [police] wagon over, but it drove away before anything could happen.”The slashed tires of one or more of the vehicles slowed down the police exit. According to accounts compiled by David Carter: “The crowd, however, was beyond being intimidated by mere sirens and the caravan had to push slowly through the furious protesters, who, enraged, pounded on the police vehicles. Danny Garvin recalls the noise as ‘people would run over, grab the [police] wagon, and start shaking — ba-boom! ba-boom!!’”Martin Duberman reported, “One queen mashed an officer with her heel, knocked him down, grabbed his handcuff keys, freed herself, and passed the keys to another queen behind her.” Inspector Pine was left with eight plainclothes detectives and one uniformed cop, all surrounded by an enraged crowd. Those among the hundreds who surrounded police threw their precious pocket change in a hard hail, shouting, “Dirty copper!” and “Here’s your payoff!”They hurled bottles, cans, bricks, a damaged fire hydrant and dog excrement at police. A youth named Timmy reportedly heaved a wire-mesh garbage can, which shattered the Stonewall’s plate-glass window, which was reinforced with plywood.Cries of “Gay power!” and “Let’s get ‘em” articulated the detonation of mass rage.There was nowhere for the police to retreat except back into the Stonewall — the very bar they had raided.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Want to bid for HR-focused jobsWant to bid for HR-focused jobs

first_img Previous Article Next Article With 15 years’ military instructor (pilot) experience, and 10 years’commercial training and development, I find myself redundant at 47. I have aBSc, BEd in adult education and development, and will shortly achieve bothlevel A and intermediate level B psychometric testing qualifications.Throughout my career I have dabbled extensively in HR (the HR manager in mycurrent position reports to me) and have a very good – but not expert –knowledge of this function. I see many jobs advertised as ‘HR and trainingmanager’. What HR-type certificates/ qualifications can I rapidly obtain thatwould allow me to bid for some of these more HR-focused roles? Caroline Battson, consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodes With the commercial experience that you have already gained in your career Iwould highly recommend that you look to develop your skills further within theHR and training field. First level courses you could consider would be the CTP(Certificate Of Training Practice) or CPP (Certificate Of Personnel Practice).These take around 10 months part-time, depending on the institution attended. As you already have a BSc in Adult Educational and Development you may findthese courses a little basic, and might want to consider going straight ontothe advanced level post-graduate course or PDS – Professional Development Scheme.This is a two or three-year course (again dependant on the hours andeducational institution) and will give you graduate membership with the CIPD. Universities will often incorporate the PDS within their MA in HRM courses,which would also be worth considering. If you would like further informationyou can get free advice from the CIPD on 020 8971 9000. Victoria Wall, managing director, Victoria Wall Associates In this current market it is essential that we offer realistic advice.Employers can now afford to select candidates with both relevant experience andthe professional qualifications to fill their HR roles. It is thereforeadvisable, if you have not already done so, for you to join the CIPD as amember, and immediately enrol on the CIPD course. This on your CV, coupled with your A and B training in psychometric testing,should convince potential employers of your suitability and commitment to an HRcareer. Use your degree in adult education and focus on training anddevelopment. Running assessment and development centres would be a good start,along with overseeing graduate training programmes. Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS Consultancy You will have noticed that most ‘HR and training manager’ vacancies ask forCIPD qualifications. They often specify corporate membership, which is memberof the CIPD (MCIPD) or fellow (FCIPD). The CIPD qualification through thecollege or flexible learning route will normally take more than two years. Youcould look at NVQs in personnel or the professional assessment route. Theprofessional assessment route is open to those with more than five years’management level experience, of which at least three must have been in HR. Although an HR qualification will help in your job search, prospective employerswill be more interested in your experience. On your CV, you will need to putacross your HR experience in a more appropriate way. The fact you had an HRmanager reporting to you should be evidence of knowledge.
