It should protect the value of investors’ income and capital over the medium to long term,” said Jim Leaviss, head of M&G’s retail fixed interest team, which will run the fund with Ben Lord.The fund launch comes at a time of concern that quantitative easing, central banks’ purchase of government bonds to inject cash into global markets after the Lehman Brothers collapse, will trigger a bout of high inflation in the medium term.Inflation in the UK has exceeded the two per cent target consistently in the last four years, Leaviss said, but he still does not expect high inflation in the short term.“We think there is far too much unemployment, too much overcapacity (for inflation to rise),” he said adding the fund launch was a pre-emptive strike to cope with investor demand. “We are building the fire engines in case there is a fire,” he added.Investors have also shown appetite for fixed-income investments this summer. The global bond sector was the best-selling asset class in July, with net retail sales of £361m.

The property is located in Wellington, New Zealand. It sits just below the road facing east, looking over the botanical gardens out to Wellington Harbour. A neighbouring house sits much higher to the north with another lower to the south. The site loses sun directly to the north, but receives both generous morning and afternoon sun and being set down from the road the prevailing northwesterly winds blow over the top. The house is laid out around 2 main outside areas, east and west.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieThe owners have a large family, with both older and younger children. The house is arranged to accommodate these different age groups with bedrooms on different levels and a variety of living spaces in the middle with walls to house art and a swimming pool for the keen swimmers in the family.Save this picture!© Paul McCredieTwo main formal gestures define the house. Simple corrugated iron roofs wrap and frame the house, which help create a relationship with the houses of the area. The green colour of these also helps the house recede into the backdrop of greenery. In contrast to this, and housing the garage and bedrooms, a more organic wooden clad element runs between the corrugated iron roofs. This element is influenced by the landscape and as it glides through the house it creates a darkness and woodiness that is intended to replace some of that lost by the removed vegetation. Sections of it have been folded or cut to house the lighting for the main downstairs living areas. Downstairs there is a pool and simple bedrooms for extended family.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessCincinnati Live/Make Competition ResultsCompetition ResultsFocal Point Community Campus Proposal / HDR ArchitectureUnbuilt Project Share Year: Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/337614/seaview-house-parsonson-architects Clipboard “COPY” Photographs CopyAbout this officeParsonson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWellingtonHousesNew ZealandPublished on February 28, 2013Cite: “Seaview House / Parsonson Architects” 28 Feb 2013.

Lima House is studio mk27’s first project in Lima, Peru. Located on an urban site, measuring 16m width by 30m depth, the main idea was to first create the sensation for the clients of living in a townhouse, taking into consideration all the possibilities that we had relative to the arrangement and size of the plot, and its occupancy coefficient.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Plan – BasementSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe solution was to create 3 overlapping boxes. A similar resource was also used on the interiors which are divided into programmatic boxes, with wooden panels and doors that exercise the function of separation elements. The house is therefore composed of three external boxes, placed one on top of another, and internal boxes that resolve the program. It is a ludic perspective of the space, a “metabox” project.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Planta – Pavimento TérreoSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe external boxes are made of slatted exposed concrete, with the front and back façades clad in different materials and acting as side covers. These materials form uniform skins that hide the openings.

Sims performed hundreds of surgeries on enslaved women without anesthesia, antiseptics or their consent.The struggle is growing for the removal of racist Dr. James Marion Sims’ statue from New York City’s Central Park. Sims, known as the “father of gynecology,” made alleged medical advances through his cruel practice of performing unethical, gynecological surgical techniques on enslaved Black women without anesthesia, antiseptics or their consent. In his quest for fame, he manipulated the institution of slavery to perform his brutal experiments.The national movement to get rid of Confederate monuments following recent white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Va., led local activists to renew their push to take Sims’ statue down.Black Youth Project 100 held a protest Aug. 19 in front of the monument, located at 103rd Street and Fifth Avenue in East Harlem, to demand its removal. Other organizations have demonstrated, too. Boldly, someone spray-painted “racist” on the statue on Aug. 26.NYC City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who has been involved in this campaign since 2011, called for the statue to come down at an Aug. 21 press conference, calling Sims’ “despicable acts … repugnant and reprehensible.” (Daily News, Aug. 21)East Harlem residents have campaigned for years to get this affront to their community taken down. A recent poll of that community showed an overwhelming number support the statue’s removal.Medical experimentation = tortureAlso addressing this issue post-Charlottesville was Steve Benjamin, African- American mayor of Columbia, S.C., who said that Sims’ offensive statute on their Statehouse grounds “should come down. … [He] tortured slave women and children for years as he developed his treatments for gynecology.” (MSNBC, Aug. 15)“Slaveowner” Sims carried out these surgeries in the U.S. South from 1845 to 1849 with no training in gynecology. In Alabama, he performed hundreds of surgeries on enslaved women that he “owned” or “borrowed.” He experimented many times on 12 enslaved women, an astounding 30 times on one of them. Many women died.Plantation owners took enslaved women to Sims for treatment so they could continue working and would produce more children to add to the enslaved population. Enslaved people had no personal rights and were the property of their “owners” who held possession of their lives, bodies and labor. Sims also experimented on enslaved Black men.Sims’ copious notes revealed slaveowner language, sprinkled with racial slurs and vivid depictions of Black women’s bodies. Later, after “successful” experimentation, he used the same surgical procedures on white women in New York, but used anesthesia for them.A common, outrageous racist belief then was that Black people were insensitive to pain — and thus didn’t need anesthesia during surgery. This sheds light on the historically violent oppression of Blacks in the U.S., and was a horrifying testament to the brutality of slavery and its relationship to U.S. medicine. It highlights the intersection of race and medicine.Harriet Washington writes about this extensively and Sims’ crimes, in her groundbreaking book, “Medical Apartheid: The Dark History of Medical Experimentation on Black Americans from Colonial Times to the Present.” (Doubleday, 2007)Neonatal tetanus in newborns, acquired through infection of the unhealed umbilical cord, often cut with a nonsterile instrument, afflicted many enslaved children. It is now known to result from the impoverished conditions of enslaved peoples’ living quarters.But the archracist Sims attributed neonatal tetanus to enslaved Africans’ “inferiority.” So this “medical monster” performed horrific surgeries on enslaved women’s babies without anesthesia. All of these babies died. He blamed the fatalities on “the ignorance” of their mothers and midwives, while his crimes caused these deaths.Even as he was committing these crimes, Sims founded the Woman’s Hospital of New York in 1855, where he performed operations on indigent women who then had lengthy hospital stays and underwent repeated procedures. Despite his record of killing women and children and inflicting pain, he was named president of the American Medical Association in 1875 and then president of the Gynecological Society in 1879.Take down Sims’ statue!The 13-foot statue of Sims was installed at its present location in 1934 — in East Harlem’s historically African-American and Puerto Rican neighborhood. In an insult to oppressed women, the wording below it reads: “Surgeon and Philanthropist, Founder of the Woman’s Hospital State of New York. In recognition of his services in the cause of science and mankind.” Wording on the base adds: “His brilliant achievement carried the fame of American surgery throughout the entire world.”The current struggle is over whether the city should keep, remove or relocate the statue. The East Harlem Preservation organization began its campaign in 2007 in solidarity with efforts by activist Viola Plummer, member of the December 12th Movement, to call attention to Sims’ cruel experiments. That year, NYC Councilmember Charles Barron petitioned the NYC Parks and Recreation Department to remove the statue. Proposals have been raised to instead honor the women Sims tortured.The EHP reports that then-East Harlem Councilmember Mark-Viverito appealed to the Parks Department in 2011 to remove the statute because it is a “constant reminder of the historic cruelty endured by women of color” — and in a community comprised mainly of people of color.The Parks Department refused to honor these requests, claiming “the city does not remove ‘art’ for content.” In 2016, Community Board 11 called for the statue’s removal. That year, at a speakout at Sims’ statue “community members honored their ancestors and condemned the memorial to assaults on Black and Latina female bodies,” said the EHP. In February, EHP addressed this issue in a cable TV panel discussion, which included author Harriet Washington. The organization is working to gain more endorsements to pressure the Parks Department to remove this racist’s monument.EHP declares that “Sims is not our hero” and maintains that the statue’s presence is an insult to the “neighborhood’s majority Black and Puerto Rican residents — two groups that have been subjected to medical experiments without permission or regard for their wellbeing.” Moreover, there are many heroic “Black and Puerto Rican women and men who have made great medical and scientific contributions” to the community. Our children, says the EHP, should learn about them — and know their lives matter.Sims’ statues, like Confederate monuments, memorialize white supremacist slaveowners and murderers. They perpetuate the view that this “medical monster” was the “father of gynecology,” a benevolent man of science, rather than a sadistic racist whose inventions were brutally enabled by slavery.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
The pandemic is teaching able-bodied people what it’s like to be disabled. Not being able to get around like you used to, facing endless unemployment, being stuck in the house, finding ways to get food delivered, and speaking to family and friends only on the phone — not in person.A Black Lives Matter protest was held by disabled activists, June 7, in Milwaukee. Workers World Party’s Disability Rights Caucus will host a webinar, July 30, under the slogan: ‘Smash ableism, racism and all bigotry and oppression?’ (See www.workers.org/videos/) Joanie Marquardt commented at the July 8 Workers World Disability Rights Caucus meeting: “People are getting infected and becoming immediately disabled to some extent. If they survive, they remain somewhat disabled. The world population is getting a feel of what it is like to be restrained by a health care crisis. This is the best time to talk about disability and to raise consciousness on it because we all have just gotten a taste of it in the last few months.” The caucus is presenting a webinar on “The ADA is not enough: Disabled People need socialism to end ableism, racism & all bigotry” on July 30 at 8 p.m. EDT. For more information, contact [email protected] On March 12, 1990, over 1,000 disability rights activists from 30 states descended on the U.S. Capitol demanding passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. After the rally, over 60 activists abandoned their wheelchairs and mobility devices and began crawling the 83 stone steps up to the U.S. Capitol building entrance, as people loudly chanted “What do we want? ADA! When do we want it? Now!” The ADA was passed a few months later on July 26, codifying further than in previous U.S. history our right to access and other civil rights. Before COVID-19, there were many parades to celebrate our ADA victory, and this month there will be virtual celebrations at Disability Unite (disabilityunite.org).But the ADA has not been enough: Some 80 percent of NYC subway stations are inaccessible — still without elevators. Many restaurants and shops have stairs, but no ramps at their entrance. Many voting places lack accessible equipment for blind folks, although they are paying taxes.Half of people killed by police had a disabilityIf you are a disabled person of color, you have to be very careful how you react to the police. Not following their commands in a split second could lead to your murder. Disability rights journalist David M. Perry, whose son has Down syndrome, documented, in research for the Ruderman Family Foundation, that as many as half of all people killed by police had a disability. (tinyurl.com/y7hau3fu) A June 24 New Scientist article warned that U.S. police kill up to 6 times more African Americans than caucasian people. It is no accident that many folks in the Disability Community support the Black Lives Matter movement and the national rebellion following the racist police murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.Cuba and disabilitiesIn addition to marking the passage of the ADA, July 26 is the anniversary of the storming of the Moncada barracks on July 26, 1953 — the spark that led to the Cuban revolution of 1959. Jean Bowdish, a member of the Workers World Disability Rights Caucus, participated in the 3rd (1970), 20th (1989) and 50th (2019) Venceremos Brigades. Bowdish told WW: “I have worn hearing aids for over 15 years. Getting hearing tests and hearing aids is a challenge in the U.S. Insurance and Medicare/Medicaid cover only a small portion of the cost of a pair of hearing aids, which can be $3,000 per hearing aid. “When I was on the 50th anniversary Venceremos Brigade to Cuba in July 2019, I was part of the group that visited the Center for Neurosciences of Cuba (CNEURO). One of the advances being made by CNEURO is in hearing devices. Scans are taken of the ear canal so devices can be created to fit a specific ear. An additional benefit is that hearing aids in Cuba are at a very low cost or free if needed — around $1.50 in 2014.”It’s going to take a radical change in society to make these rights real! The slogan of the Workers World Party Disability Caucus: “From Each According to Our Abilities, To Each According to Our Needs,” was first coined by Karl Marx in his 1875 “Critique of the Gotha Program.”As a great leader of the Cuban revolution and a person with the disability of asthma, Ernesto Che Guevara once said, “If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Sierra Madre Blvd., officers served a search warrant at that location Wednesday and arrested four employees, seized marijuana, marijuana products and cash, authorities said.Police spokesman Lt. William Grisafe said two men and two women were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit sales of marijuana.The dispensary on Sierra Madre Blvd. near East Del Mar Boulevard in District 4 has attracted the city’s attention when it became the first known dispensary to open after the city announced in February it had shut down all unregulated dispensaries operating in the cityThe city has fought to close illegal dispensaries for years. By early 2020, Pasadena’s Marijuana Suppression Detail had shut down 19 illegal shops, along with five others that opened, in 17 months.The unit also closed a grow facility during that time period.According to the City’s Code Commission, which is scheduled to meet to discuss alleged code violations during a May 28 meeting, the dispensary on N. Sierra Madre has violated the city’s municipal code by engaging in commercial cannabis activity without a permit.“To my knowledge, the only cannabis dispensary that has opened since February 2020 is the dispensary at 219 N. Sierra Madre Blvd.,” said Code Compliance Manager Jon Pollard. “I know of no other active cannabis dispensaries within the city.”The commission will also discuss cost recovery associated with abating public nuisance conditions associated with two other closed dispensaries at 775-779 E. Washington Blvd. The city is trying to recoup the $11,686.23 it spent to shut down those operations.“The city of Pasadena seeks to ensure public health and safety by aggressively identifying and pursuing unlawful dispensaries that engage in the sale of contraband cannabis and contraband cannabis derivatives,” Pollard said. “Those efforts are through the combined work of staff from the Planning & Community Development Department, the Police Department and the City Attorney’s office. The city has a continuum of enforcement options up to and including obtaining abatement warrants to board and secure unlawful dispensaries. The city seeks to be remunerated by the responsible party for abatement costs.”In 2018, voters passed Measure CC, the city’s highly regulated process which allows only six pot dispensaries — and potentially only one in each of the city’s seven council districts — to operate legally in Pasadena.The measure also requires dispensaries maintain strict distance limits from schools, libraries, churches and residential neighborhoods. Nearly 200 businesses applied.After Measure CC passed, the City Council banned so-called “nuisance,” or non-permitted dispensaries from applying for business licenses under the city’s cannabis law.“It seems that the best method to discourage illicit dispensary operators from opening in Pasadena is to maintain a robust and timely enforcement process,” Pollard said. “The City will diligently pursue complaints regarding illicit cannabis dispensaries and the public can contact me directly at (626) 744-6831 or [email protected] if they would like to report the suspected or confirmed presence of a dispensary in Pasadena.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes More Cool Stuff STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News
