Central Florida mourns the death of OPD Lieutenant Debra Clayton

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Hundreds attend funeral service at First Baptist Church of OrlandoShe was a daughter, a sister, a mother, a wife, and a friend to all. She was a police officer, a published author and a community activist. When Lieutenant Debra Clayton was gunned down on Monday, Central Florida suffered a tremendous loss.Hundreds packed the First Baptist Church of Orlando this afternoon to pay their respects and mourn the death of Clayton, among them her relatives, friends, fellow police officers from multiple agencies, and her beloved colleagues of the Orlando Police Department.OPD Chief John Mina posthumously promoted Clayton to lieutenant during the service.“You exhibited the best in policing,” Mina said. “She urged the people to not give up on our police department.”Witnesses said Clayton confronted Markeith Loyd early Monday morning at a Wal-mart on Princeton Street in Orlando. Loyd was being sought in the shooting death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon. During the confrontation, Loyd allegedly shot and killed Clayton.“People thought she was my mother,” said her brother Rudy Thomas. “And I never corrected them, because she was more than a mother to me. If anyone tried to tell me the things she told me, it wouldn’t be the same. I feel blessed to know her…even now. Man…I love her. I loved her dearly.”Clayton was born on August 14th, 1974, to Rudolph Thomas Sr. and Yvette Shackelford, and was raised by her late grandparents, Earnest Thomas and Annie Thomas. She grew up in Orlando, and graduated from Dr. Phillips High School in 1993. She obtained an associate’s degree from Valencia College in 1996, and graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor’s degree in public administration in 1998. In 2002, Clayton earned a master’s degree in criminal justice from UCF. Clayton joined the Orlando Police Department in 1999. She was promoted to sergeant in 2007 and earned the rank of master sergeant in October. Gov.

House in Lupsingen / Luca Selva Architects

The village of Lupsingen consists of a small old center and a much larger residential area of single-family homes. The most popular mixture of remoteness and close proximity to the city center of Basel 30 minutes away is justification for this proportion. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcDoorsVitrocsaGlass Technology in Hotel BeaulacThe house is set on a hillside on the outer edge of the residential area, backed by the forest to the northeast and overlooking farmland to the southwest. The building’s volume interprets the local building codes in an unexpected yet relaxed way. The code allows saddleback roofs and hipped roofs only. In order to benefit from the diverse qualities of the site Luca Selva Architects opted for an undirectional volume and thus chose the hipped roof. Save this picture!To avoid a static impression, the whole volume has been geometrically manipulated so that the hipped roof is no longer perceived as such. It breaks away on all sides and blurs its dimensions. Combining this with a low elevation compared to the depth, gives the building a horizontal orientation. The overall impression is one of a calm, earth bonded building, yet the inner spaces are light and clear. The house is crossed by an outdoor space leading from the entrance on the lower level to the inner courtyard on the upper floor by an open sky stairwell. These elements light to the rear of the building. The outdoor space isn’t a typical patio. Its peripheral position, piercing the western façade like a loggia turns it into a hybrid space half covered by the roof, bringing an inner tension to the building. The main rooms are set around it: the entrance, a sound studio and an atelier on the ground floor, living room, dining and cooking areas on the upper floor. At the back, the bed- and office rooms form a second layer facing the forest.Save this picture!On the apartment level, the courtyard turns everything inside out. The three glassed sides allow for cross-views over the interior of the living space and also extend the view out through the windows. The sliding doors also open the living space to an extent that the border between interior and exterior becomes blurred. Yet the spatial structure remains clear, each room extending to the pitched roof area and thus gaining a defined atmosphere. Although this takes place on the inside, the house isn’t introverted. Suiting its situation, generous punch windows open up to the landscape.Save this picture!A deliberate ambivalence can also be found at the structural level: the wooden structure of the first floor is not didactically opposed to the concrete structure of the ground floor. The difference in building materials can only be perceived in the chipboard and expanded copper paneling that form the semitransparent outer skin of the courtyard. These are new building materials that still have to stand the test of time.The building’s appearance itself is also ambivalent. It is a body rather than a house in the traditional way. There is no distinction between roof and walls both are clad in slate. The entire envelope is the roof. There is no canopy and no gutter or rain pipes, the rainwater simply runs down the façade. Following the logic that there is only a roof only skylights have been used. Due to all these details the single-family house looks disturbingly different yet firmly rooted in its surroundings.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe New Moulin Rouge, Paris 2009 CompetitionArticlesAD Round Up: Sports Architecture Part IIArticles Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLuca Selva ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesReigoldswilSwitzerlandPublished on June 06, 2009Cite: “House in Lupsingen / Luca Selva Architects” 06 Jun 2009.

Saudi aggression brings famine to millions of Yemenis

first_imgDisplaced people in Yemen collect water from distribution point.Famine is now killing more people in Yemen than combat in that country’s war of defense against U.S.-backed Saudi Arabia.Some 13 million civilians among Yemen’s 29 million people face death by starvation, said Lise Grande, the United Nations coordinator for Yemen. The U.N. is close to calling the situation a famine. (Independent, Oct. 15) The Save the Children charity now estimates that 50,000 children under the age of five could die from malnutrition this year alone.Located in the southwest corner of the Arabian peninsula, Yemen has a distinctive history of at least 2,800 years. The region was wealthy for centuries, producing frankincense and myrrh, but now Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world. While it has substantial oil reserves, fighting in this country makes it impossible to produce oil profitably.There is a civil war between the Ansar Allah movement, also known as Houthis, and the puppet regime Saudi Arabia reinstalled in power in 2015 after the Houthis drove them out. The United States supports the Saudi rulers, supplying the kingdom with the most advanced weapons, military and logistical supplies, target intelligence and recently some special operations forces.While the puppet government appears to control most of the territory, the Houthis are in control of the major populated parts of the country.The Saudis are conducting an extensive military air campaign against the Houthis, with big attacks on farming fields, fishing vessels, water facilities and transportation. These attacks destroy everything the Yemenis need to feed themselves, as well as targets like hospitals, schools — killing many civilians — and military facilities. The Saudi navy is blockading all the ports Yemenis use to get food.Saudi Arabia’s brutal murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in their embassy in Turkey on Oct. 2 has drawn worldwide media attention and condemnation, especially in the U.S. and Western Europe. Meanwhile, the genocidal Saudi war on Yemen has been relatively ignored.For example, the Trump-hostile ­MSNBC network has devoted just one segment to Yemen. Meanwhile, MSNBC has aired over a dozen negative segments on Russian and Syrian government operations to “reconquer” Syria. (FAIR, March 1)Current reasons for this famine in Yemen are financial. The puppet government controls the central bank. It has used this control over the economy to create runaway inflation. Higher prices have wiped out the people’s savings.The puppet regime also pays no wages to government workers in areas the Houthis control. That includes doctors, nurses and teachers. About one-third of the jobs in Yemen are government funded.That means that even where there is currently enough food in the markets, people can’t afford to buy it.The Saudi royalty rule a feudal state structure sitting atop a capitalist economic system based on the sale of petroleum and dependent on arms suppliers in the U.S. and Western Europe. The stubborn resistance of the Houthis in the face of tremendous pressure make the Yemen puppet regime unstable, while Saudi war crimes make the suffering of the Yemeni masses unbearable.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

While it may be too early to declare a trend, what will it mean if these two central measures of the economy continue on the paths they’ve taken the last two years?According to William Dupor, Assistant VP and Economist for the St. Louis Fed, it will mean that the nation has entered a decline in the number of technology-related jobs available.The GDP grew at an average yearly rate of 3.1 percent from 1987 to 2006, which is the 20-year period prior to the recession, while employment grew at a rate of 1.6 percent during that same period. In 2015, GDP growth is likely to finish the year at a rate of around 1.8 percent (the first estimate for Q4 released last week was 0.7 percent). Employment grew at a rate of 1.9 percent for 2015 compared to the projected 1.8 percent for GDP, with a similar pattern happening in 2014, according to Dupor.Among other things, the GDP includes consumer goods and services as well as the buildings and equipment companies use; therefore, Dupor said, “The overriding reason that real GDP grows faster than employment over longer horizons is technology. As technology improves over time, workers become more productive, generating more GDP per worker.”If the GDP and employment rates continue to grow at their respective anomalous rates from the last two years and do not return to the pre-recession growth pattern, Dupor says, “The most disheartening explanation might be that the economy has downshifted into a period of slow technological growth that could last for many years.”While the recent employment reports have been positive as far as the number of jobs created, wage growth has been stagnant—and wage growth has been cited by many economists as the key to increasing household formation and raising a homeownership rate which fell to a 48-year low in the second quarter of 2015.The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported in its December 2015 Employment Summary that wage growth still fails to dazzle, with average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls in December down by 1 cent at $25.24. This came after a 5 cent increase in November. For the entire year of 2015, average hourly earnings rose by 2.5 percent.Paul Ashworth, Chief US Economist at Capital Economics. says that wage growth was the only disappointment in the BLS report, and “a meaningful pick-up in wage growth is still the missing piece of the puzzle in this recovery, but the survey evidence suggests it will arrive soon.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Stating that as the Applicant, the Union through its President Bhanu Pratap Singh, received no response to the Representation duly served to the Respondents/States, they were constrained to file the instant Application. The Application challenges the three new Farm Laws – The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020, the Farmer’s Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020, and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020. It has been averred that the Acts are “illegal and arbitrary, because, these acts would pave way for cartelization and commercialization of the agricultural produces and if allowed to stand, we are going to completely ruin our country as the corporates can, with one stroke, export our agriculture produce without any regulation, and may even result in famines”. The Application further states that the laws are unconstitutional as the lead to farmers being at the mercy of “corporate greed of multinational companies” and will end up dismantling the Agriculture Produce Market Committee (APMC) system intended to insure fair prices for farm products. Further, the Application submits, the laws were passed hastily without any adequate discussion and their implementation in their current form would spell disaster for the farming community by giving way to a parallel unregulated market. “That without APMC acting as a protective shield around the farmers, the market would ultimately fall to the corporate greed of multinational companies who are more profit oriented and have no care for the condition of the poverty stricken farmers which are many time coming on the stage of starvation due to natural calamity (sic)”. It has also been contended that due to illiteracy of many farmers, there would exist their inability to negotiate the best terms with a private company and may lead to an unequal bargaining position. The Application also states that the Applicant seeks for the formation of a Farmers Commission, in which all the members should be kept as originally farmers, including the President of the Commission. Additionally, it would be only be the prerogative of this Commission to decide the prices of the crops of the farmers. Siva’s petition, in which the IA has been filed, challenges the Farmers Produce Trade and Commerce (Agriculture and Promotion) Act, 2020, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act 2020. The first mentioned Act seeks to enable the farmers to sell the farm products in places outside the market yards regulated by the Agriculture Produce Marketing Committees(APMCS) established by various state laws. The second mentioned Act seeks to provide a legal framework for contract farming agreements. The third mentioned Act seeks to relax the food stock limits and the price control over food items like cereals, pulses, potatoes, onions, edible oilseeds, and oils under the Essential Commodities Act.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Next Storylast_img read more
