Bruny Island sits across the narrow D’entrecasteaux Channel which separates it from the Tasmanian mainland. Accessible only by boat, Bruny is a remote and beautiful landscape. The island is a traditional holiday destination for Hobartions and is increasingly becoming an international destination for more discerning cool climate connoisseurs.  Our clients, a professional couple, approached us after purchasing the land with a view to building a permanent residence. With family members owing adjacent properties, our clients was intently aware of the need for the architecture to reconcile the need to orient for light and view, but also provide protection from offshore winds and glare from the expansive water plane. Replete with devastating panoramas, the site was nonetheless exposed.  Winds buffet the angled terrain and the glorious light is at times too demanding for the eyes.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingIn parallel to this physical need for protection, the remote location brought a psychological need.  The home had to provide a reassuringly solid and contained presence, company for a remote and beautiful existence.  These two factors led to a dialogue about security, permanence and belonging. Tasmania is notable, in geological terms, for its Dolerite, which is around 180 million years old. Our clients are a family including two geologists and therefore stonework fitted well with our architectural inclinations and the families’ professional interests.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe resulting high stone walled outer skin, and a light, taut, timber interior, contain the traditional functions of a home.  These contrasting built elements satisfy both the physical and psychological need that the location demands of the architecture. The modest house employs an inflected non-orthogonal plan where massive stone walls encompass light timber-lined living spaces.  The black stained timber interior provides relief from the blisteringly bright Tasmanian light and projects the occupant into the landscape beyond. Large sliding timber doors open to the northern light and a large deck which overlooks the channel and mountain range beyond. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ben HoskingService functions are wrapped up in shiny black boxes. The kitchen island bench sits as a crisp blunt monolith. Black bathrooms feature generous skylights and full height tiling. Full width mirrors double the perceived space of these carefully designed interior volumes. Bespoke glazing details are used throughout the residence. Double-glazed argon gas units provide thermal performance commiserate with the cool temperate climate. The house harvests rainwater and recycles wastewater onsite. D’Entrecasteaux House has a simple pallet, dark within a pale stone exterior.  The orientation of face-fixed bespoke glazing focuses attention upon specific elements of the landscape, providing an opportunity for repose.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingProject gallerySee allShow lessSlow House / KDDHSelected ProjectsThis Medieval Town is Built Inside a Crater and Composed of Millions of DiamondsArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeRoom11 ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKingborough CouncilAustraliaPublished on February 19, 2018Cite: “D’Entrecasteaux House / Room11 Architects” 18 Feb 2018.

Transgender woman in PA prison speaks out

first_imgIt’s a “witch hunt” against transgender women incarcerated in male institutions. I was denied going to a female facility and told it was “because of what I did at the State Correctional Institution at Chester, located in Chester, Pennsylvania.” At SCI Chester, I spoke up on protecting women and the lack of security at that institution under Superintendent Ms. Lamas. If you do not know Ms. Lamas, she is responsible for the rape of a woman employee at the SCI Rockview by a sexual predator inmate. By NO means was Lamas ever prosecuted or lost her job. As a superintendent (warden) at Rockview, she was told by the woman employee that the male inmate was stalking her. The woman employee ended up being captured in her office, knocked out, then raped. Superintendent Lamas stated to the media: “She knew what she was getting into working in an all-male prison institution.” Instead of being fired, losing her pension or facing criminal charges, the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections gave Lamas the superintendent job at SCI Chester. At SCI Chester, 90% of employees are women. They wear fancy wigs, dress in tight clothing and walk as a woman should. As a trans woman at SCI Chester. I questioned why a psychologist called me into her office, tucked way in the back of the program service building, when no one was in that building but her and I. So I wrote and reminded the PA DOC about the Rockview incident. In retaliation, the PA DOC had me locked up and transferred immediately [to SCI Forest] — only because I questioned a security violation by SCI Chester’s security and placed Lamas as an unprofessional who has no concern for the safety of women under her custody, care and control. When I brought this into the light, I was being who I am [as] “a woman.” I did not feel safe there under Ms. Lamas’ custody, care and control.    When [Corrections Classification Program Manager] C.C.P.M. Mr. Gustafson here at SCI Forest told me, “You were denied to go to a female institution because of what you did at SCI Chester. The PA DOC denied it for those reasons.” I looked at him and said, okay, that’s fine. I know as a woman what I did was right. Women at SCI Chester came to my cell thanking me for bringing that up even though they couldn’t. They feared losing their jobs if they brought it up. Ms. Lamas told me, “They know when they come to work what they’re getting into. They don’t need your opinion.”  I told her no! It makes your jobs much harder to deny if it does happen here. I was transferred to a maximum security all-male institution SCI Forest. I live on a special needs unit (SNU). As a transgender woman, I am still in a male institution, where men can intimidate me, hit me if I say no to them that I won’t date them and be mentally, physically and sexually abused. Transgender people incarcerated face unique extraordinary vulnerabilities in prison: risks of physical, sexual assaults and harm. According to the National center for Transgender Equality — which conducted a survey of nearly 30,000 transgender people in the United States — transgender inmates in the general prison population are ten times as likely to be abused by other inmates and five times likely to be abused by staff.When I speak up or complain about a legitimate situation, this is what happens to me. So am I right, or am I wrong? What is next? SCI Forest has no problem placing transgender on population blocks. I am on a SNU block, but for how long before the unit team gets tired of me? I already told them ahead of time, “If you place me on another block, I will be forced to take self lock-up protected custody.” I am not going to go through the abuse by inmates or staff in this institution. I feel safe being on the SNU at this time until I can be accepted to go to a female/women’s facility. I do hope that this brings light to your understanding of how transgender women are treated. I also hope that you may write the PA DOC and question why I was turned down due to what I did at SCI Chester. Respectfully Sincerely,Miley S. FletcherNote:  To contact the PA DOC about this situation reference Eric Wolfgang / Miley S.

It is a sad environment. It does not discriminate when it comes to transgender women — white, Black, Spanish, Indian, Asian in a male institution. You are hounded by not only the male inmates, but also the guards and staff and abused physically and sexually.last_img read more

Financial struggles could mean admission fee for Fort Worth Botanical Garden

first_img + posts printElectrical issues, sinkholes, deteriorating greenhouses, and a small gardening staff are just a few of the problems that the Fort Worth Botanic Garden is facing.The garden’s 2016 strategic planning report estimates there are up to $15 million in unmet repairs and renovations throughout the 110 acre garden.“This is not a matter of malfeasance or mismanagement,” said Garden Director Bob Byers. “It’s just that the issues in the garden have grown faster than our ability to pay for it.”Fort Worth Botanic Garden Funding SourcesVenngage InfographicsTaddie Hamilton donated over 500 hours of her time in the begonia green house last year. She said she sees the problems that the garden faces each time she volunteers.“You can look around the greenhouses and see how old they are. We had a lot of damage in the spring with the hail,” she said. “There are only ten real gardeners that get their hands in the dirt and that’s not enough.”At almost 80 years old, the garden is the oldest of its kind in Texas.It is also the only public garden in the country that does not charge an admission or parking fee. The garden only charges a fee for admission to its Japanese garden and conservatory.“I love the fact that our garden is free. I would love to keep that,” said Byers. “When I look at the numbers, I just don’t see that we can do it in the long term.”According to the strategic planning report, a general admission fee could generate up to $2.2 million in revenue for the garden.Hamilton said after looking at the financial needs of the garden she has come to accept the idea of a general admission fee.“For years I have been against that and I said I will fight to the death not to have to charge,” she said. “I do realize that I’ve had to change my mind. It saddens me, but we have to look at reality. Data doesn’t lie.”An increase in revenue would not only alleviate the garden’s unmet repairs and renovations, but would also allow the garden to expand its service to the public said Byers.“I see what other gardens are doing, and our programs are not keeping up. We don’t have exhibits, we don’t have education programs that are comparable,” he said.The addition of an admission fee must be approved by the Fort Worth city council.Byers said that even if the council votes to approve the new charge, it would not be immediately implemented.“We’re not rushing into this,” he said. “We want to make sure that we do it right and we have the minimal impact on the people of Fort Worth and our visitors.”Hamilton said maintaining the garden is important so that people can enjoy it for years to come.“This garden is for everybody. We don’t want it to become something that’s not maintained and beautiful. ” she said. “That’s why I think it’s important for me to work to maintain the begonia collection. We don’t want to lose them.”If the city council votes to approve the admission fee, it would not be implemented until the beginning of the 2018 fiscal year.

Former Chicago cop sentenced to 81 months in prison for murder of African-American teen

first_imgAntonio Perez-Pool/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — Former Chicago police officer Jason Van Dyke was sentenced to 81 months in prison on Friday evening for the shooting death of African-American teen Laquan McDonald.Van Dyke, who is white, shot McDonald, who was 17-years-old, 16 times on Oct. 20, 2014. Video released during the investigation showed McDonald was armed with a knife but the teen didn’t appear to be moving toward the police officers who responded.Friday’s sentencing in a Chicago courtroom began early Friday morning and lasted well into the evening before the judge handed down the sentence.Prosecutors had sought a “significant amount of time” — 18-20 years — while Van Dyke’s attorneys had asked for probation.The Chicago Police Department “lost a great officer,” Van Dyke’s wife, Tiffany, said at Friday’s sentencing hearing.“I don’t have my husband, my children don’t have their father,” she said. “My heart is broken.”McDonald’s great uncle, Rev. Marvin Hunter, read a victim impact statement from McDonald’s perspective in court, reported The Chicago Tribune.“I am a victim of murder in the second degree,” the statement read, according to the Tribune. “I am unable to speak with my own voice.”In October, Van Dyke was found guilty of second-degree murder and 16 counts of aggravated battery. He was found not guilty of official misconduct.For second-degree murder, Van Dyke’s sentence could have stretched from probation up to 20 years. For aggravated battery with a firearm, he could have faced six to 30 years per charge.Three Chicago police officers on Thursday were found not guilty of falsifying details to cover up the shooting.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Protests at Exeter over OSFL abortion panel event

first_imgElla Richards commented, “We decided to organise the protest because we were really uncomfortable about the prospect of an antiabortion group holding a meeting at a place which is ultimately a home for a lot of people. One in three women in the UK will have an abortion before they are 45; statistically there will be students, staff , and fellows who have been personally aff ected by abortion in some way.”The event was also attended by many pro-life advocates, including a Sacristan at Pusey House, Guy Jackson, who told Cherwell, “A lot of people seem to assume that being pro-woman means being pro-choice as well. It was refreshing to hear from women who disagree.”On its website, OSFL claims that it is a nonsectarian group dedicated to “promoting a culture of life at the University and in the wider community, advocating the protection of human life and dignity from conception to natural death”.The society holds regular pro-life events which have attracted signifi cant attention in the past. Last term, OSFL had planned a debate between historian and writer Timothy Stanley and journalist Brendan O’Neill at Christ Church entitled ‘This House believes Britain’s Abortion Culture Hurts Us All’. After a large protest was organised by OxRevFems, the debate was deemed a “security issue” and ultimately abandoned. O’Neill described the protestors as “the new enemies of free speech”.After this week’s event, a member of OSFL told Cherwell, “Last night was less about winning arguments than about having a sensitive and responsible discussion of the complex issue of abortion, and we were grateful to the pro-choice audience members who came along and contributed. In their diff erent ways, our five speakers all offered hope that we can build a society which values both women and the unborn.”Emily Watson, a panel member, told Cherwell, “It’s wonderful to see dialogue being enabled around the important issue of abortion. It’s a serious issue that deserves attention, and a university like Oxford is a great place to discuss why more young people are declaring themselves pro-life.” Oxford Students for Life held a controversial panel event at Exeter College on Wednesday, attracting protesters from across Oxford University. Around 20 students turned out on the evening of the event to express their opposition to the event taking place in the College. Exeter College refused to cancel the event, however, citing concerns over freedom of speech.The pro-life event, entitled ‘Pro-life feminism: A panel discussion’ is part of OSFL’s ‘3rd Week focus on pro-life feminism’ and featured a panel of five female speakers discussing why they are both feminist and pro-life. The all-female panel featured a paediatrician, a qualified solicitor, a Rhodes Schola r, a trainee teacher, and a charity fundraiser explaining how they came to support a pro-life stance, and how they find a pro-life ethos to be compatible with their feminism.The panel was organised after a peer supporter at Exeter booked the College room. Despite calls from some, including students who had themselves had abortions, to have the event cancelled, College offi cials decided to proceed.A peaceful protest against the event was organised by Alice Nutting and Ella Richards, both English students at the College. The protest’s Facebook event stated that whilst OSFL were entitled to hold the discussion, Exeter College had a duty of care toward students and staff , which includes not making them feel uncomfortable in their home.Protestors proceeded to gather outside the Saskatchewan Room where the discussion was being held and made paper fl owers with pro-choice statements and expressions of discontent written on them.Before the event, Alice Nutting told Cherwell, “I’ve organised this protest as I want college to be a safe place for all those who’ve had an abortion – we’re here, we’ve made fl owers and we’re out in solidarity for all those who’ve had to have an abortion. We’ll be asking questions and making our views known.”Many of the protestors attended the discussion, using the Q&A session to question the pro-life views of the panel. All bar one of the questions asked came from pro-choice protesters. However, Richards responded, “We would still have preferred that the discussion was not held in a college and we are pleased that the College is now working out a system so that events like this don’t occur in future.”A film night was organised by the JCR for students who wanted to avoid the tense atmosphere around the debate. The JCR Executive and Exeter College declined to comment on their decision to allow the booking of the room and the discussion to proceed.Two anonymous testimonies from Exeter students who have had abortions were submitted to Cherwell. They can be read below:Person AI had an abortion whilst in my first year at Exeter. I couldn’t see how this event was in the academic or welfare interests of students; I couldn’t understand why the event had been advertised at other colleges but not at Exeter. I expressed these concerns to College.The event went ahead. After peacefully protesting outside, I went in to hear their views. The talk began with them stating that the event was not a debate; we were simply to hear the opinions of the pro-life speakers, and there could be questions at the end.Some what the speakers said was surprising. One speaker spoke of how abortion clinics in the USA “target” people, specifically “Black and Hispanic communities”. When, at the end, I asked how a clinic can “target” someone – does it hunt them down, get them pregnant, and force them to have an abortion? – members of the panel expressed the view that abortion in the USA was introduced as a form of “eugenics” aimed at controlling the Black and Hispanic population, and that the preponderance of abortion clinics in Black and Hispanic neighborhoods today is evidence of that campaign of “black genocide”.I defend the rights of women to be able to choose abortion. I defend the rights of Pro-Lifers to disagree with me. Sadly, though, the event did very little for free speech, and even less for the Pro-Life cause.Person BAs someone who had an abortion less than a month ago, I was deeply distressed to find that my own College, who had been made aware of my abortion at the time, decided to allow the event to occur – especially when I, along with others, expressed serious welfare concerns to the College.We held a peaceful, well-attended protest outside, writing positive, pro-choice feminist messages on origami flowers that talk attendees had to walk past. We then decided to go in and hear the panel’s views on ‘pro-life feminism’.Expecting discussion based on the concept that life begins at birth, instead the panel said some productive things about improving help for young single mothers, but balanced out any positivity with anecdotal evidence and claims such as: feminists should consider that abortion deprives men of fatherhood; some abortion clinics offer women no other advice and pressure women into abortion; and, moreover, that the panel wished to give women “more options”, but still wanted to abolish abortion.I found out later that the student from Exeter that booked the room did so believing that it was for a talk on increasing support for single young mothers, which was clearly not what it ended up being. I would have preferred that the talk was not held where I live, sleep and work, and I’m glad that in response a system is now being put in place by College to not allow this to occur again. In the meantime, attending the debate and hearing just how spurious, unfounded and frankly libellous much of what the pro-life speakers said made me have hope that their cause will go no further.last_img read more
