Jonas Gahr Stor, ministro de Asuntos Exteriores, ha dicho que se rechazarán las donaciones millonarias de Arabia Saudita y varios empresarios musulmanes para financiar la construcción de mezquitas en Noruega. Añadió que “sería ridículo aceptar las fuentes de financiación de un país donde no hay libertad religiosa”.En Argentina han conmemorado el Día de las Mujeres Migrantes en memoria de Marcelina Meneses, una mujer indígena que fue arrojada de un tren en movimiento “por ser boliviana” el 10 de enero de 2001. Hasta el momento sus asesinos viven en la impunidad. Pero hay casos mucho más extremos.Venezuela vivía una crisis de seguridad en la década de los 90s que se ha incrementado desde 1998. El gobierno afirma que sólo hay 39 muertes por cada 100 mil habitantes mientras el Observatorio de Violencia, una entidad privada, dice que son 79 los homicidios. De cualquier modo se habla de 11 mil a 25 mil venezolanos muertos por la violencia cada año. Las recientes muertes de Mónica Spear y su esposo Henry Berry han llenado de luto a la sociedad venezolana. ¿Hasta cuándo, Señor?Tres cosas le han sucedido a la Iglesia Episcopal del Espíritu Santo en Miami que los llena de alegría. Primero su sacerdote encargado, Rafael García, ha sido instalado como rector de la congregación cargo que le otorga más poder y responsabilidades; segundo Salvador Arce, un joven cubano graduado de una escuela de canto coral en La Habana ha fijado residencia en Miami y ha comenzado a ensayar con el coro actual de la iglesia; y tercero la celebración de los primeros 100 años de vida de Ángeles (“Angelita”) Rial que ha dedicado su vida a servir en la iglesia. Nacida en Guantánamo, canta en el coro y está dispuesta a realizar cualquier tarea. No usa bastón, nunca se ha enfermado y cuando se le preguntó si se había casado dijo con una sonrisa: “Tuve mis pretendientes pero ninguno valía la pena”. La fiesta terminó con un espléndido almuerzo a los acordes de música de mariachis.En Moscú se ha revelado que Mijail Kalashnikov, inventor del fusil AK47 y fallecido recientemente, había escrito a Cirilo, patriarca de la Iglesia Ortodoxa Rusa confesándole que “el dolor en mi alma es insoportable por las muertes causadas por mi invención”. Añadió que el fusil fue inventado para defender a la Patria pero se ha usado con fines perversos.“¡Dichosa prensa!” Dijo el presidente de Francia, François Hollande por haber revelado sus amoríos con Valerie Trierweiler, una bella actriz francesa que trabaja en la oficina del presidente. Después de este gran cintillo periodístico la prensa de París no hace otra cosa que hablar del tema. Muchos opinan que Hollande tendrá que rendir cuentas ante las autoridades judiciales.En Chile las críticas han llovido desde que se supo que Ricardo Ezzati, arzobispo de Santiago, es uno de los 19 cardenales recientemente nombrados por el papa Francisco. Víctimas de abusos sexuales por parte de sacerdotes acusan al arzobispo de encubridor. Un caso en cuestión es el de Fernando Karadima, pastor de una importante iglesia en Santiago. Los países latinoamericanos que tienen nuevos cardenales son Chile, Brasil, Haití y Nicaragua.En una sorprendente decisión el gobierno de Cuba ha permitido que 15 jóvenes cubanos activistas o hijos de disidentes puedan gozar de becas otorgadas por Miami Dade College en la ciudad que tiene mayor número de exilados. Los nuevos estudiantes tomarán clases de inglés, computación, administración de negocios y estudios sociales por seis meses antes de regresar a Cuba. La prensa radial y escrita ha dado la bienvenida a los “novatos cubanos”.DUDOSA DEFINICIÓN: Proclamo en voz alta la libertad de pensamiento y muera el que no piense como yo.

This self-build project for the practice director Jake Edgley’s own family home, was initiated, designed and contracted by Edgley Design. Save this picture!© Jack HobhouseThe concept began with a 100 year old pear tree, a remnant of the site’s history as a Victorian fruit orchard. The house has been built around the tree, creating an internal courtyard that brings light and air to the centre of the plan, while turning the house inward to remain private from the surrounding terraced houses. Save this picture!© Jack HobhouseThe site is long and thin, and the layout is arranged around the changing light of the day, with the kitchen looking to the north east for morning light, the living areas looking south west onto the pear tree courtyard for light from midday, and the lowered snug in the centre of the building as a cosy retreat in the evening. Save this picture!© Jack HobhouseSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jack HobhouseIn terms of inclusivity, the house is open plan with circulation designed to flow generously as space rather than corridor. The layout and structure allow varied flexibility to provide for future disabled occupants, either with stairlifts or platform lifts.Save this picture!© Jack HobhouseThe intention is for the house to blend into its wooded backland context as far as possible. To this end the details emphasise the vertical articulation of the building, and views through the building are defined by slender vertical elements which echo the experience of looking through trees.Save this picture!© Jack HobhouseProduct Description. The ground floor walls are cast in concrete with vertical timber formwork, with a natural grain and texture that blends into the surroundings, and a robust finish where the walls meet the ground and are exposed to the weathering of nature and occupants. The internal staircore has a smooth ply finish to give a softer surface where it is touched by the inhabitants. These staircores provide lateral stability and create dramatic, naturally lit spaces from the rooflights above.Project gallerySee allShow lessA Stainless Steel Railing System Offers a Lesson in StrengthMiscThe Cloud / Studio FuksasSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Jack Hobhouse+ 22 Share Projects Area: 425 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project United Kingdom Photographs Pear Tree House / Edgley Design CopyHouses•London, United Kingdom Architects: Edgley Design Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/799295/pear-tree-house-edgley-design Clipboard Pear Tree House / Edgley DesignSave this projectSavePear Tree House / Edgley Design CopyAbout this officeEdgley DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on November 14, 2016Cite: “Pear Tree House / Edgley Design” 14 Nov 2016.

However, this, in my opinion, is not sustainable given the timeframe involved and pressure to house people. It is also unfair to expect tenants to continue to live in these houses if no major maintenance works will be done.”He went on to say that large green areas have replaced hundreds of houses, such as the former Clarina Park estate, with no plans for redevelopment.“Other plans to build houses to the rear of Our Lady of Lourdes community centre are advanced with no consultation.“Void properties continue to blot the community and we must set ambitious targets to eliminate and compulsory purchase houses that are derelict or empty and provide homes for families. The objective of subsuming the Regeneration agency into the council was to ensure that there was joined up thinking on how best to develop and improve Ballinacurra Weston.“We need a complete review of current plans so that we can agree the best course of action to advance the redevelopment and upgrade of the estate for the benefit of the entire community,” Cllr Leddin concluded.Chief Executive of Limerick City and County Council, Conn Murray replied that he would “look at what possibly can be done”.

Covering human interest and social issues as well as creating digital content to accompany news stories. [email protected] Print Email A FIVE million Euros investment programme on the Great Southern Greenway is to begin in June Limerick City and County Council (LCCC) will “showcase” the beauty of County Limerick “in the best possible way”.The multi-million contract has been awarded to Roadbridge for a total upgrade of the surface of the Greenway which will see the entire 40km route from Rathkeale to the Kerry Border near Abbeyfeale extended to a 3-metre wide macadam surface.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The route along the old Great Southern rail line connects the three market towns of Rathkeale, Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale and is one of the hidden tourist gems in the west.Welcoming the investment, Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Sheahan said, “The Greenway passes through some of the most beautiful scenery in County Limerick and this investment will allow us to showcase it in the best possible way.”The Limerick City and County Mayor said the project has the potential to be one of the “best Greenways in the country” with the latest investment “helping to achieve that”.This development will bring the route to the highest standards and on par with many of the most popular Greenways in the country including the award-winning Waterford Greenway.The project is being funded by Limerick City and County Council (€3.4m) and the Rural Regeneration & Development Fund (€1.6m) with work to be completed by June 2021.Mayor Sheahan added, “We also look forward to working with our friends in Kerry once the Greenway extends to Listowel.”An extension to the Greenway from the Limerick/ Kerry border near Abbeyfeale to Listowel is expected to be finished by Kerry County Council in the same time period, while a workplan on an extension eastwards from Rathkeale to Limerick is also being developed.Gordon Daly, Director of Community Development in Limerick City and County Council commented this investment in the greenway is the “largest and most significant” since LCCC took responsibility for the amenity in 2015.“These multi-million-euro upgrade works will have a transformative effect,” Mr Daly said, adding, “making the Greenway a much more accessible and enjoyable experience for both locals and visitors alike. We look forward to its completion in 2021 and we are committed to working with community and business interests to harness its great potential in the years ahead. ”In addition to the €5 million investment, a number of other significant advancements are being made. These include:Railway heritage property acquisitions completedLimerick City and County Council has purchased the old Ardagh and Barnagh Station Houses as part of conservation and promotion plans for the railway heritage associated with the Greenway. Work to stabilise and secure the preservation of these two historic structures will be undertaken this year.Farm Crossings including Coolybrown resolvedWith the agreement of CIE and landowners, the Council will in the interests of health and safety construct an 800m diversion of the Greenway around a working farmyard at Coolybrown, Ardagh. No further route diversions are planned along the Greenway. The Council has commenced design work on the small number of cattle underpasses necessary to facilitate other farm crossings along the route.Extensions to the GreenwayIn tandem with this contract, the Council continues to plan for of an extended Limerick Greenway and cycle routes. Funding has been sought for a feasibility/ options report on extending the Greenway from Rathkeale to Adare, while preliminary designs on identifying a Greenway extension from UL to Montpelier are advancing.Cycle routes off the Greenway to Askeaton, Foynes and Glin will also be developed in the near future.In addition, a contract has been awarded for the supply of signage for the section of the Eurovelo cycle route from Rathkeale to Adare and into the city to connect with Co. Clare. This will be completed Summer 2020.Marketing & Promotion PlanAn ambitious Marketing & Promotion Strategy for the Greenway will be devised and implemented over the next 12 months.Business/ Community EngagementIn order to maximise the benefits arising from an enhanced and extended Greenway, engagement with businesses and communities along the route and surrounding areas will be accelerated. Plans for enhanced town trails in Rathkeale, Newcastle West and Abbeyfeale will also be developed. Advertisement Linkedin WhatsApp Facebook Twitter
