The apartment building with 30 rental units for young people is located at the eastern edge of the Carabanchel development. Like other new urban districts in Madrid, this zone is characterized —with its oversized street grid, isolated buildings, unoccupied parcels, empty apartments and vacant shops— by the abrupt change from the booming market of 10 years ago to the present economic crisis. Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe building was designed and built during the transition between these two moments, a small parcel anchored between two larger, contradictory housing operations. Given this difficult context and the limited budget, the form of the building assumes multiple interpretations with respect to its urban character in these times of change. First, it is an introverted volume, a cube distinguished by voids in the facades that undermine the rigid contours of the volume, and engage the space around it. Secondly, its thick skin, dark and wrinkled as that of an elephant, holds large openings that allow the interior broad views of the adjacent landscape. Finally, its design is rigorous and compact, and its floor plan —composed with a series of crossing bands that contain structure, mechanical spaces, kitchens, bathrooms and closets (the service spaces) — possesses a dynamism creating a variety of domestic spaces.Save this picture!© Jesús GranadaThe ground floor is open, providing a shared space protected from the sun and rain. A series of common rooms —a meeting room, collective bicycle storage, play spaces and the laundry terrace— complement the dense living areas and contribute to a sense of community and belonging that ensures the future of the project.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessHow 5 California Colleges Approach Campus DesignArticlesSalón Inés Pose / STGOSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Calle Tremis, 5, 28054 Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Howard Lake | 25 September 2002 | News National mobile phone recycling campaign launched Charities raising funds from donated old mobile phones now face a major new player in the market.Fonebak is a new government-backed campaign to collect and recycle mobile phones. It is the first mobile phone recycling scheme to have the backing of all the network service providers and four major retail chains.It also claims to be the first to comply with current legislation, and the forthcoming Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive, which comes into force in 2003, which sets guidelines and targets for the recycling of potentially harmful electrical waste.

The progamme is commercial so would appear to be a competitor to those mobile phone recycling campaigns set up by charities such as Oxfam’s Bring Bring initiative. However, Fonebak says that its marketing team is willing to work with charities and environmental organisations as well as companies to develop joint take-back or trade-in schemes.Some of the mobile operators have been running charity recycling schemes already. Virgin Mobile donates £5 to the Red Cross for every one of its mobile phones that is recycled, and Vodafone expects to donate £100,000 to Flora and Fauna International by the end of 2002. Having launched its scheme in April 2002 it reports that already 700 phones a week are being recycled.Read “Mobile mountain sparks recycling bid” at the BBC. 15 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis

domoyega/iStockBy JOSH MARGOLIN, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — A top House Democrat, concerned that the FBI has not been candid about extremist efforts to infiltrate law enforcement and the military, is demanding an urgent briefing from the nation’s top law-enforcement agency.Rep. Jamie Raskin, chairman of the House Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Subcommittee, dispatched a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray Tuesday with a deadline for action.“I am deeply concerned that the bureau dismissed this threat last year and instead characterized the threat of white-supremacist infiltration of law enforcement as a hypothetical problem that has not materialized,” wrote Raskin (D-Md.), who led a hearing on the problem last year. “For the above reasons, I am requesting a member briefing on this topic no later than March 26, 2021.”The new urgency comes in the wake of an ABC News report published Monday detailing a confidential FBI intelligence assessment of the problem of white supremacists and other right-wing extremists plotting to infiltrate police agencies and the military.Based on investigations between 2016 and 2020, agents and analysts with the FBI’s division in San Antonio concluded that extremists would “very likely seek affiliation with military and law enforcement entities in furtherance of” their ideologies, according to a confidential intelligence assessment issued late last month.The document, obtained by ABC News, was distributed to law enforcement agencies both in Texas and elsewhere in the country. It focused on extremists inspired by the white-supremacist publication “Siege,” which served as motivation for the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division, among others.The report was titled “Siege-Inspired Actors Very Likely Seek Military and Law Enforcement Affiliation, Increasing Risk of Tradecraft Proliferation and Color of Law Offenses in the FBI San Antonio Area of Responsibility.”The FBI told ABC News Wednesday that they had received Raskin’s letter, but did not offer further comment.Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Wray said that there are currently 2,000 domestic terrorism investigations, up from almost 1,000 when he first started in 2017.“Whenever we’ve had the chance we’ve tried to emphasize that this is a top concern and remained so for the FBI,” Wray said in his testimony. “The FBI will not tolerate agitators and extremists who plan or committed violence. Period. And that goes for violent extremists, of any stripe.”In an interview, Raskin told ABC News he believes that the vast majority of police and members of military do their jobs properly. However, he said he has become increasingly concerned in recent years by episodes that seem to point to a serious problem with extremist activity on the inside.“The bureau failed to level with the American people,” said Raskin, who led the impeachment of former President Donald Trump in response to the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. “This is an emergency.”Since the Jan. 6 attack, lawmakers and officials have increasingly focused on the issue of white supremacy and other types of violent extremism in the military and law enforcement. According to research by news organizations including The New York Times, at least 30 people with law enforcement training have been tied to the events of the insurrection, which left five dead, including a Capitol Hill police officer.“As the world now knows, on Jan. 6, 2021, irrefutable proof of this threat materialized on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, when off-duty law enforcement officers participated in the violent insurrection against Congress,” Raskin wrote in his letter to Wray. “Given the FBI’s refusal just last year to admit that extremist police officers posed a serious threat to our Nation’s security, I am now concerned that the Bureau lacks an adequate strategy to respond to this clear and present danger to public safety.”Conclusions in the FBI’s Feb. 25 assessment were based on information from records and informants, some of whom had “excellent access,” according to the document.“In the long term, FBI San Antonio assesses [racially motivated violent extremists] successfully entering military and law enforcement careers almost certainly will gain access to non-public tradecraft and information, enabling them to enhance operational security and develop new tactics in and beyond the FBI San Antonio region,” the report said.The report’s assessment is “based on evidence [extremists] expressed a desire to join the military and law enforcement primarily to obtain tradecraft to prepare for and initiate a collapse of society, specifically by engaging in violence against the US government and specified racial and ethnic groups,” said the document. “Online peers encouraged them to seek these careers and [extremists] built relationships with associates seeking military employment, focusing on the associates’ current and future martial skills.”In addition, the report says extremists are “likely to seek to exploit familial and social connections when pursuing military and law enforcement employment, reducing obstacles and increasing opportunities … to acquire tradecraft.”The FBI publicly issued a similar warning in 2006, and in 2015 agents were instructed to modify methods and tactics because of the fear of infiltrators in their midst.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

The standards, which are currently being piloted by a group of 24 public andprivate sector organisations (News, 3 April), are designed to help employersmanage stress in the workplace. They are based on the HSE’s seven causes of stress, which are identified inits guide Tackling Work-Related Stress, and cover areas such as workloads,working hours and the support that staff receive at work. The six-month pilot scheme will be followed by the publication of adiscussion document, expected in January next year, and a formal consultationperiod before the first standards are introduced later in 2004. It is likely that companies which continue to breach the stress managementstandards will ultimately face prosecution under the Health and Safety at WorkAct, which places a duty on employers to look after the mental health of theirstaff. Bill Callaghan, chair of the HSE, said: “Stress is on everyone’s lipsand business people are becoming aware of just how costly dealing with thisproblem can be. I think handing them a tool to help them develop good practicemakes sense.” www.hse.gov.uk HSE publishes draft stress codeOn 24 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article

June 6, 2017 View post tag: Royal Thai Navy View post tag: US Navy Authorities The U.S. and Royal Thai Navy concluded eight days of bilateral training events ashore and at sea and wrapped up the 2017 edition of the Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) exercise on June 6.This is the 23rd-annual CARAT exercise and the Royal Thai Navy has been a participant in the series since the exercises began in 1995.“Over the past eight days our sailors and marines worked side-by-side with their Thai counterparts in conducting a variety of training events ashore and operations at sea,” said Capt. Alexis Walker, deputy commodore, Destroyer Squadron 7. “Through 23 years of operating together, CARAT exercises allow us to incorporate new training topics and sea-based operations each year, furthering our interoperability and joint capabilities.”At sea, for the first time during a CARAT exercise, one of Coronado’s embarked MQ-8B Firescout unmanned helicopters conducted a shoreline flight, testing the range and sensitivity of the RTN’s coastal defense radar system. Additionally, a rigid-hull inflatable boat simulated a fast-attack craft, which triggered the RTN ships HTMS Naresuan (FFG 421) and HTMS Sukhothai (FFS 442) to initiate self-defense measures.“Coronado sailors enjoyed a complex and rewarding sea phase during CARAT Thailand,” said Cmdr. Doug Meagher, commanding officer, USS Coronado. “A wide range of maritime events allowed us to improve our interoperability with the talented professionals of the Royal Thai Navy.”This year’s sea phase also included an air defense exercise, division tactics, communications exercises, a gunnery exercise, cross-deck flight operations, anti-submarine warfare operations, a photo exercise, and mine warfare operations.Several new training events were added to this year’s shore phase, including a Basic Maritime Analysis Course. Designed to increase analytic skills that support and strengthen maritime domain awareness, 26 officers representing the six agencies within the Royal Thai Maritime Engagements Coordinating Center (MECC) attended the five-day training, which culminated in a practical scenario-based exercise.Shore phase events in 2017 included engineering and damage control training; legal symposia; visit, board search and seizure training; diving operations and salvage training; mine warfare training; and anti-submarine warfare training. Sailors from Coronado also partnered with 7th Fleet’s rock band, “Orient Express,” for community relations activities at four schools and a child development center in Sattahip.U.S. ships and units participating in CARAT Thailand 2017 include USS Coronado, USNS Millinocket, a P-3C Orion, Marines from 3rd marine division, explosive ordnance divers and the Seventh Fleet Rock Band “Orient Express.” View post tag: CARAT CARAT Thailand concludes Back to overview,Home naval-today CARAT Thailand concludes View post tag: USS Coronado Share this article
The Ocean City Housing Authority and the City of Ocean City are working together to provide new housing for senior citizens in place of the flood-prone Peck’s Beach Village complex along Fourth Street. By Maddy VitaleThe Ocean City Housing Authority and the City have entered into a shared services agreement that will help to finance a 34-unit affordable housing complex for seniors.City Councilman Bob Barr, who serves as chairman of the authority’s board, could not vote on the matter due to being on Council, but he did express his feelings on the agreement during the authority’s meeting Tuesday.“I want to thank the mayor (Jay Gillian) and my fellow councilmates for making this agreement possible,” Barr said. “This is unprecedented in this state and possibly in America. The generosity of the city and the mayor in particular, deserve gratitude for what they are doing for the housing authority and most importantly, the residents.”Senior housing at Peck’s Village will look much different than the low-lying, dated units pictured.The authority went into closed session to discuss details of the resolution for a shared services agreement. After about 20 minutes, the members voted in favor of working with the city on the plan.The city is giving the housing authority $1.8 million to help finance the project, according to the resolution. The original plan called for 20 units with an estimated cost of $4.4 million, funded by a Hurricane Sandy grant. Now, those two sources of funding will be combined to finance the 34-unit complex.The authority concluded that there is a need for more units and it would be more cost effective to construct the additional units now, rather than wait. The only problem was the New Jersey Housing and Mortgage Financing Agency (HMFA) would not approve the expanded project unless additional funding became available.That is where the city came in.The project for 34 units is part of a broader plan for the city to meet its affordable housing obligations. In July, a settlement agreement between the city and the Fair Share Housing Center was entered into, which was approved by City Council by resolution that same month.After the 34-unit project is completed, it is anticipated that the authority and the city will enter into another shared services agreement.The second agreement would be for the construction of 40 units of affordable housing for low-income families at Peck’s Beach Village north and 20 affordable family rental units at Peck’s Beach Village south, according to the resolution.Torrential rains during a September storm show how vulnerable to flooding the units are at Peck’s Beach Village.The authority will have to seek new construction bids for the expanded 34-unit project, which will be named in honor of the late housing authority Commissioner Ed Speitel.In an interview, Barr said he anticipates construction will begin at year’s end and be completed by Christmas of 2019.The Ocean City Housing Authority uses federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide affordable housing for low-income senior citizens, families and the disabled at its Peck’s Beach Village and Bayview Manor facilities.Peck’s Beach Village also includes a 40-unit complex for low-income families. That part of Peck’s Beach will remain open after the new project is built because it sits on slightly higher land than the senior citizens complex and does not flood as much.For more information about the Ocean City Housing Authority visit www.oceancityha.org or call (609) 399-1062.Members of the housing authority took about 20 minutes to go over the shared services agreement before voting.
