The Treasury sold €2.51bn (£2.13bn) in 12- and 18-month bills, in the middle of a €2-3bn target range. The results had little impact on bond markets, but yields at the tender jumped dramatically from last month’s auctions after a renewed sell-off that has driven up borrowing costs for Spain. center_img More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Spain feels the pain as the cost of its debt soars KCS-content Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Report: 459,000 of Florida’s Children Live in Concentrated Poverty

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear By Trimmel Gomes/Florida News ConnectionTALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A new report shows 459,000 Florida children, 11% of children in the state, live in neighborhoods with concentrated poverty. Florida is showing modest improvements, dropping four percentage points from its all-time high of 15% in 2014.It is among 29 states and the District of Columbia that have shown improvements in the number of kids living in extreme poverty, according to the latest Kids Count data snapshot by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. However, Norin Dollard, director of Florida Kids Count, said children of color are disproportionately impacted.“One-in-10 in Florida – we have 4 million kids, it’s a lot of children. And if you’re a child of color the story is even worse,” Dollard said. “There’s more children, particularly African-American children, living in areas of concentrated poverty than their white counterparts.”The report defined concentrated poverty as 30% or more of the population living below the poverty line. Experts say those conditions pose great risks to child development.Dollard said state leaders should focus on policies that help families help themselves, such as expanding affordable housing options and eliminating housing discrimination.Scot Spencer, associate state director of advocacy with the Casey Foundation, said for just one of the 12% of all children in the United States that are currently living in unhealthy conditions is unacceptable. He said families in these areas often don’t have access to healthy food, quality education or medical care.“No children should be living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty,” Spencer said. “The fact that we still have 8.5 million children after multiple years of economic expansion and growth should not be a satisfactory solution for anyone in the United States.”The report showed states in the South and West tend to have higher rates of children living in concentrated poverty. Spencer said there are a number of solutions, including providing relief from higher and escalating property tax rates for low- and fixed-income residents.Dollard said there is also a need to protect SNAP benefits – or food stamps – and any temporary assistance to families in need.

The site is located three miles South of Mallaig, overlooking the White Sands of Morar, with the Small Isles of Rum, Eigg, Muck, and Canna as a scenic backdrop. Two traffic arteries in the middle distance, the West Highland Railway and the Road to the Isles, follow the contours of the coast, leaving the sloped site confined between the two, in both position and datum. The endeavor of making the area accessible has left its traces, as excess excavations have been dumped on adjacent land, now mostly overgrown by dense vegetation and trees which form the foreground of the plot.Save this picture!© Andrew LeeTo address the site conditions, the holiday house consists of two stacked volumes with perpendicular focal points. The cantilevered first floor establishes a distinct connection to the distant scenery, while the ground floor below creates a focused view of the fabric of the immediate site.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanIn order to found the dwelling on the site’s natural soil, the ground floor has been sunk at entrance level. This gives the dwelling the appearance of a single storey volume when approached from the site’s narrow access track. Two long external retaining walls, at either side of the fully glazed eaves, mould the surrounding ground to slope gently towards the building, making the sites luscious vegetation the focus for the bedrooms.Save this picture!© Andrew LeeOn the first floor, that comprises all public spaces, the position of the openings is reversed. The eaves are fully closed, pushing the visitors view towards the far reaching scenery. This creates a contradiction: by eliminating the boundary between private bedrooms and site, the lower floor becomes a public space, while privatising the upper floor with dominant boundaries, the far reaching landscape becomes an inherent part of the public spaces.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe exterior of the building is treated with the same principle. A building with a dual pitched roof is an universally understood rural typology. This building is stripped of it’s stereotypical attributes and the first floor is displayed on the recessed ground floor plinth, allowing the vernacular form itself to become the only focus. As a result, the question of the building’s use remains unanswered to onlookers, with the contrast between artificial and natural further emphasised as the dense vegetation reclaims the site.Save this picture!© Andrew LeeThe building is protected by a timber rain screen. With down pipes and gutters eliminated, rainwater runs controlled as a curtain set back from the bedroom windows. The amount of light entering the building through the glazed walls and roof lights, acts to keep the atmosphere of the building diverse, with the outside becoming more dominant the darker the inside is kept.Save this picture!© Andrew LeeAll walls, both inside and outside, are white washed and continue past the insulated envelope negating the end of the interior space. This absence of materials provides a blank canvas on the interior, giving dominance to natural light as it is projected across all walls, mirrored from the continuous lacquered concrete floor. On the exterior retaining walls, the form of the building is cast as an ever changing shadow throughout the course of the day.Save this picture!© Andrew LeeA holiday house essentially differs from a permanent residence as the period of stay is defined. This building captures that intersection of being part of a place and creating its own environment at the same time.How much building is required to inhabit a place?Daniel BärProject gallerySee allShow lessAD Classics: Viipuri Library / Alvar AaltoArchitecture ClassicsHow Has The Monograph Become A Default In Architectural Publishing?Event Share Year:  2014 Year: center_img “COPY” Environmental Consultant: An Cuilionn Consultancy Photographs:  Andrew Lee   Beach House / Dualchas Architects CopyHouses•Morar, United Kingdom Houses Projects “COPY” Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeDualchas ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMorarHousesUnited KingdomPublished on May 18, 2015Cite: “Beach House / Dualchas Architects” 18 May 2015.

Act V of Tehran judicial travesty

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa IranMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 March 18, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information The prosecution again put the media at the centre of its case during the fifth hearing before a Tehran revolutionary court on 14 September in the mass trial of opponents of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s reelection, this time going so far as to accuse Facebook and YouTube of waging a psychological war against Iran.“This travesty of justice must be brought to an end,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Iranian judicial authorities want to humiliate journalists and bloggers by staging forced confessions and requests for forgiveness. Journalists and ordinary Internet users are being tried just for sending emails and looking at news websites. The regime wants to punish not only professional journalists but also anyone accessing news and information.”Mohammad Reza Niourbakhash, a journalist detained since 4 August, was one of the six defendants who appeared in court in the 14 September hearing. Represented by a court-appointed lawyer since the start of the trial, he was forced to read out a statement confirming his guilt and that of the politicians, in complete agreement with the prosecutor’s indictment. All six defendants confessed to having been manipulated by “false information on the Internet.”The prosecutor directly attacked the social networking website Facebook and the video-sharing website YouTube during the 14 September session. “There are 25 million people in Iran who use the Internet,” he said. “The United States supported websites such as Facebook and YouTube with the aim of influencing the rioters and undermining the government’s position both nationally and internationally. Sites such as Facebook and YouTube were devised by the United States in order to wage a psychological war against Iran.”The relatives of Ahmad Zeydabadi, an imprisoned journalist who was not in court on 14 September, said he is still refusing to read out the statement dictated by his interrogators. The wife of another jailed journalist, Mahdieh Mohammadi, said in an interview for radio Zamaneh that the judge told her Mohammadi had written a letter saying “he does not need a lawyer.” The judge nonetheless refused to show her the letter.Since the start of the trial, the imprisoned journalists have not been allowed access to their own lawyers, who have in turn not been able to see case which the prosecution has prepared against their clients. Lawyers linked to the intelligence services were instead assigned to the journalists by the Tehran prosecutor. Several journalists such as Mehdi Hossinzadeh and Shiva Nazar Ahari, who blogs on the women’s rights site Azadizan, are still being held in various sections of Evin prison, where they are under constant pressure to make confessions.Access to Persianblog, Iran’s oldest blog platform, has meanwhile been blocked by the authorities since 14 September without explanation. The website confirmed that access was blocked and said it was trying to find out the reason from the authorities.Reporters Without Borders has learned that Koroush Javan, a reporter and photographer arrested on 13 July, and Mirhamid Hassanzadeh, the editor of the Ghalamnews website, who was arrested on 4 August, have been freed on bail.
