No InstallTaonga: The Island Farm Tags: NULL KCS-content whatsappcenter_img whatsapp Monday 6 September 2010 8:40 pm Show Comments ▼ Share MILLIONS of Londoners faced long delays getting into work today as London Underground (LU) strikers are set to continue their action into the evening.Yesterday at 5pm, LU maintenance and engineering staff left their posts and were followed four hours later by drivers, signallers, station staff and operational managers at trade unions RMT and Transport Salaried Staffs’ Association (TSSA).The disruption is affecting LU’s entire Underground network, with delays expected to continue all this evening.Transport for London (TfL) said passengers can expect a return to relatively normal service by the start of tomorrow’s morning rush hour commute but that some minor disruptions should still be expected.Last night, Londoners scrambled to get home early before the strikes began.Commuters flooded into underground stations before 5pm to catch the Tube, while overland trains leaving London Bridge station were busier than usual and commuters fought for space on London’s buses.TfL said it will “keep London moving” through the course of the 24-hour strike period and yesterday put its plans into action.Roughly 100 extra buses were added to main routes, while Londoners were also encouraged to get on their bikes. But due to overcrowding, it’s likely that most will have to travel to work by foot.Just half an hour after the strike started last night, disruptions were already reported on the Bakerloo, Central and District Lines.At the centre of the bitter dispute are cost-cutting measures LU said it will have to take in order to avoid a raft of draconian cuts in next month’s government spending review. The cuts will affect underground station staff. Unions RMT and TSSA have called the cuts “unsafe”.HOW TO BEAT THE STRIKETUBETfL said disruption is likely to the majority of journeys, but LU has bid to run as many trains and keep as many stations open as possible. According to LU, volunteers will be on hand at key stations throughout London to provide alternative travel options to passengers.BUSESLondon’s buses will continue to operate around 700 routes, with the addition of 100 buses on extra busy routes during the strike. Extra staff will also be added on major hubs to assist passengers.RAIL AND THE DLRThese services will operate on a normal schedule, however London Underground has warned that some disruptions may occur where there are interchanges with Tube stations. Network Rail services will also operate a normal service.CYCLINGTfL said that over 5,000 of its “Boris bikes” will be available to hire for members although demand for the service is expected to be high, especially at peak times. The transport group has encouraged Londoners to cycle into work and has pledged to provide guided rides today. TfL said: “We’ve written to hundreds of businesses across London to ask them to be flexible and make it easy for staff to cycle to work, and to allow staff to wear casual clothes on the day.”RIVER SERVICESTfL is to add 10,000 additional seats on boats travelling on the Thames between Towe Bridge, Westminster and London Eye Piers.TAXISThis morning taxi drivers will be operating a marshalled service for central London at Waterloo, Liverpool St, King’s Cross, Charing Cross and Marylebone train stations, while fixed-fare taxi sharing will be implemented at Euston and Paddington stations. In addition, the fixed-fare taxi sharing schemes at Euston Station and Paddington Station are expected to operate as normalDRIVINGThe Congestion Charge will remain in operation throughout the strike. However, TfL added: “We will be delaying or curtailing road works on major London roads wherever possible and are encouraging all London boroughs to take similar measures on their network.”WALKINGTfL will provide passengers with walking maps at Tube stations within Zone 1 and key outer London stations, with volunteers helping people plan their routes around the city. last_img read more

San Joaquín acoge su próximo capítulo con el ‘obispo misionero’…

Foto: Richard Schori[Episcopal News Service] La Obispa Presidente Katharine Jefferts Schori, más de media docena de otros obispos y unos 400 episcopales dieron, el 23 de febrero, al recién nombrado obispo auxiliar David Rice una alegre, entusiasta bienvenida oficial a la Diócesis de San Joaquín.Rodeado por un desbordante público en el servicio de la tarde festivo en la iglesia San Pablo [St. Paul’s Church] en Modesto, la obispa presidente dirigió la juramentación de conformidad a la doctrina, disciplina y culto de la iglesia episcopal a Rice, quien recientemente se desempeñó como obispo de Waiapu  en la iglesia anglicana en Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia.Rice está a punto de convertirse en el próximo obispo provisional de la diócesis; él va a presentarse a las elecciones en la convención especial del próximo 29 de marzo que se celebrará a las 11:00 am en la iglesia de San Pablo [St. Paul’s Church]en Bakersfield.El obispo David Rice y su esposa Tracy acompañados en frente del altar por los obispos de las diócesis Provincia VIII de la iglesia episcopal.

Foto: Kelvin YeeTalton presidió a Lamb como obispo provisional y su mandato era respecto a “reconstruir, volver a conectarse, sobre la sanación… y animar para ser presencia invitadora y acogedora en la comunidad en general. “Chet y Abril [cónyuge] han empujado continuamente, atraído, y engatusado a la gente de por aquí para probar cosas nuevas, y alcanzarlas en maneras que pueden parecer atemorizantes o nuevas, siempre dirigidas al bien del otro”, dijo la obispa presidente.Este próximo capítulo con Rice “puede ser resumido, ‘mire aquí y vea cómo es Dios, y si no se puede ver claramente, mire lo que hago, y verá lo que Dios está haciendo’. Esta comunidad diocesana se dedica a hacer que esas palabras y obras sean evidentes – para que el mundo pueda ver la sanación, la reconciliación y la buena noticia en la carne “, dijo.Ella también desafió a los episcopales de San Joaquín a – en palabras del antiguo obispo de Nueva York Paul Moore “‘¡levantarse, salir y perderse!” Levanta tu coraje, sal al mundo, y perdeos en servir el mundo de Dios”.Temprano en el día, Rice había compartido un sentimiento similar mientras predicaba en la iglesia San Juan el Bautista [St. John the Baptist Church] en Lodi, a unas 40 millas al norte de Modesto.Describiéndose a sí mismo como un “obispo misionero”, él dijo: “¿Qué es lo que yo perpetuamente hablaría y preguntaría con respecto a esto?, ¿cómo estás involucrado en el mundo más allá de esta hermosa casa de oración?”. Él desafío a la congregación a pensar sobre lo que significa “volver a definirnos para nuestras vidas para lo que significa un vencindario, y la realidad es que si tomamos en serio el evangelio, si tomamos la vida de Cristo en serio, [un vecindario] es mucho más amplio y mucho más incluyente de lo que quizás queremos admitir a veces en nuestras vidas”.Temas fundamentales de su ministerio, basadas en el pueblo indígena de la gente Maori  de los conceptos de Nueva Zelanda de “manakitanga” (como es recibido) y whakapapa (de dónde viene), incluyen extender la hospitalidad no sólo a los que nos visitan la iglesia, pero además amplia el concepto de la iglesia, dijo.

A veces puede ser que tengamos que cambiar. A veces, el patrón de nuestras vidas podría ser alterado. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Submit an Event Listing Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI “Desde mi perspectiva, la iglesia es todo por lo que podemos ver”, dijo Rice. “Es donde está Dios. El mandato del Evangelio nos invita a unirnos con Dios donde quiera que Dios se encuentre y Dios está en todas partes al mismo tiempo en el sentido más ubicuo”.Lo que significa que “nos permitimos ver y experimentar a Cristo vivo en todo el mundo que nos encontramos”, agregó. “Piense en cómo el mundo en que vivimos podría ser dramáticamente, y profundamente diferente si dejamos verdaderamente ver al Cristo vivo en todo el mundo”.Recordó ser testigo de miles de jóvenes que jugaban tenis [netball] una mañana de un domingo cuando se dirigía a celebrar la Eucaristía en una iglesia en la diócesis Waiapu, un acontecimiento semanal, de acuerdo con miembros de la iglesia. Rice les preguntó: “¿Qué pasa si algún domingo en vez de reunirse aquí, nos reunimos allí, y usamos nuestras camisetas y ofrecemos agua embotellada a la gente y que poder estar ahí y hacerles saber lo que somos y así podríamos ampliar nuestro barrio”. Varias personas se sentían incómodas con la idea, dijo, diciendo que preferían estar en el edificio de la iglesia el domingo por la mañana. Otros preguntaron si ofrecer agua a los jugadores de tenis atraería a más gente a la iglesia.

Si hacemos lo que él nos invitó a hacer, ¿sabes lo que pasa? Construimos relaciones, respondemos a las necesidades, vamos una milla extra… y aquellos a quienes respondemos quieren ser parte de la comunidad y, a veces – no siempre – ellos van a venir”.Sin embargo, “esto no es la evangelización”, agregó. “Esto es algo diferente. Esta es la misión. Esto es ser misionero”.En una nota personal, Rice evocó risas y aplausos cuando dijo a los feligreses que él había asistido a un bar nocturno para recaudar fondos en la iglesia Santa Ana [St. Anne’s Church] en Stockton la noche anterior y que su antigua diócesis compartió una tradición con la diócesis de Central California Valley – ambas están situados en las zonas de mayor producción de vino.Nacido y criado en Carolina del Norte, dijo que sus padres tienen ascendencia cherokee, y cree que él puede llevar el registro para la mayoría de las ordenaciones – cinco, incluyendo ordenaciones para diácono y ministro de la iglesia Metodista Unida, después como diácono y sacerdote y luego como obispo en la iglesia anglicana.También fue ministro de la juventud y ha añadido que está “muy interesado ​​en participar en las vidas de los jóvenes de aquí en todo lo que pueda”.Patsy Lithco, 67, un feligrés de la parroquia de San Juan [St. John] dijo que “se enamoró” de Rice inmediatamente. “Me gustó mucho su mensaje acerca de lo que tenemos que hacer fuera de estas paredes. Él me sacó mis calcetines. Él es absolutamente un guardián”.Rice inspiro esperanza en Jim Reeve, miembro de San Juan [St. John] por nueve años. “Era un esperanzado profético. Ese fue probablemente uno de los mejores mensajes que he escuchado, sobre todo la parte de salir fuera de la iglesia. Él hizo una súplica apasionada a nosotros hacer lo que el Señor nos ha pedido hacer”.La Rda. Elaine Breckenridge, sacerdote encargada de San Juan, [St. John]  estuvo de acuerdo en que Rice inspiró esperanza. “Estoy muy emocionada. Fue un sermón tan inspirador. Él es carismático y un pensador profundo al mismo tiempo. Él traerá un nivel de esperanza a la diócesis”.Después de una larga conversación tranquila con Rice, William Bunn, 9, lo pronuncia “agradable. Él es un buen amigo. Llamó a mi camiseta chaleco y dijo que era apuesto”.EL obispo provisional Chet Talton nombró a Rice obispo auxiliar. Rice comenzará a hacer visitas pastorales en esa capacidad. Si es elegido el 29 de marzo Rice ocupará inmediatamente el puesto de obispo provisional de la diócesis, convirtiéndose en el primer obispo activo para servir en esa capacidad después de que las diferencias teológicas dividieron la diócesis en el 2007.–LA Rda.

LaurenceBalanced DoorsResidential ApplicationsULMA Architectural SolutionsAir Facade Panels + Creaktive in Social HousingText description provided by the architects. We were supposed to build a unit defined by the Ardoi partial plan in the town of Zizur mayor. Like in almost all urban developments recently introduced around Pamplona, Ardoi establishes a grid sized enough to create some private “garden-patio”, defined by three blocks in the shape of a “U”, which are able to argue the order of the whole residential unit and become a pleasant meeting point for the neighbourhood. Save this picture!© J.M. CutillasTaking as reference the central space, it seems obliged to order the whole dwelling  so that most of them can enjoy it, dedicating the perimeter walls, which are facing the surrounding vials (with worse views and bigger privacy problems due to proximity to adjacent buildings), to the holes which ventilate and illuminate the bedrooms. Therefore, we propose a double orientation model housing with open spaces opened to the “garden-patio”, and the bedrooms to the adjacent streets. The housing allows a continuous circular transit between both areas and around the baths located as the only indoor spaces. The typology allows to adapt to different structures (two, three and four bedrooms) with little variation. The four bedrooms structure is distributed in two levels taking advantage of the attic floors.Save this picture!© J.M. CutillasThe “garden-patio” is facing to the south and, as a consequence, they are sunny. They need the existence of a special sunscreen as a protection to the houses, so we designed the double skin, which is caused by a continuous balcony equipped with movable panels that make up the facades to this space. This device facilitates the shadow caused by the panels and balconies and enables the creation of big holes for the living-rooms and kitchens without the threat of heat from solar radiation caused by an excessive sun exposure. Save this picture!© J.M. CutillasIt seems appropriate to highlight that modern concepts such as sustainability, energy efficiency and so on, which emerged as a new way to understand the needs that society demands of architecture and born of an ecological concern, are as old as the history of building. Even from the knowledge of the popular architecture the need for protection to external agents has gradually defined the image of architecture, and has also explained why rural either cosmopolitan image of a Nordic population differs from other Mediterranean or Atlantic. The logical design is the most effective and economic method in order to solve these problems, which have been forgotten in the past by formal concerns or a desire for belonging to a certain culture affiliation. The responsibility to answer to these questions must be for the passive measures, the implicit building design. That is what we have tried planning two different kinds of façade so that the margin for confidence in the technological response is as short as possible and it minimizes the energetic consumption with the lowest possible investment.Save this picture!© J.M. CutillasBased on these considerations we have been interested in this project research, because of the expressive possibilities of using a single material to solve all the envelope, seeking maximum abstraction within maximum efficiency. It is a project in which the margins are really narrow because of the excessive predetermined volumes by the urban planning regulations. We wanted to take to the extreme the use of a single material that meets all construction problems to the point of neglecting composition. In fact it is the daily use of the house which defines the changing appearance of buildings by the arbitrary opening shutters as needed.Save this picture!© J.M. CutillasDrawn aluminium trays cover the closed facade, the mobile shutters and the sliders allowing through their perforations a solar and views control and excellent filtered indoor lighting conditions. However the boundaries with public space, closures terraces, gateways, slopes… are done with spruce wood boards, which is a very pleasant material that also helps to reinforce a unified image for the four buildings.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessDALE /Unbuilt ProjectBed, Breakfast & BauhausArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Calle Saguesgaña, 31180 Zizur Mayor, Navarre, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Not a long drive away from Mumbai, a mountainous landscape rises up, called the Western Ghats. From this UNESCO world heritage area, numerous rivers and streams find their way down through an undulating landscape eventually feeding into the Bombay bay. Save this picture!AxonometricThe Riparian House is placed just below the top of a hillock at the foothills of the Ghats. The top of a vegetated roof merges with the top of the hillock, hiding the house from the approach on the east side. Inside the house one can nevertheless enjoy the views to the north of the Irshalgad hill fortress and towards the west the sunset while the river winds its way across the agricultural fields.Save this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT imagesSince the most of the site is steeply sloping with a 1:4 gradient, the vegetated roof gives the house an additional usable area. From the top it seems to be an extension of the natural landscape, enhancing the under-statedness of the house. The green cover serves to keep the house below cool due to its insulative properties. Save this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT imagesAlong the central axis of the house landscaped steps lead you along a coarsed stone wall towards the pool deck. A second set of steps connects to the main level of the house where the axis culminates via the dining room and kitchen into a light filled courtyard. The experience of being inside the earth is enhanced through the stone boulders which were discovered during the excavation process and retain the earth.Save this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT imagesThe kitchen occupies a central position along with the open to sky courtyard and is flanked on either side by two bedrooms at the two far ends. These spaces are embedded in the earth with windows brining in ample light from above and the river side.Save this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT imagesA master bedroom, bathroom, dining and living area sit along the front, a more open face of the house. Both the living room in the western corner of the house and the master bedroom in the northern corner enjoy panoramic views to the river. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanGalvanized steel mullioned windows break down the scale of the front façade of the house. A rhythmic row of bamboo poles is placed at close intervals in front of the house to create a layer of privacy without obstructing the spectacular view of the river and the mountains beyond. The bamboo enclosure creates a dialogue between the interior and the dramatically changing landscape. The natural landscape changes from a dense brightly green coloured jungle-like forest during the monsoon months to a pale brown shrubby wasteland during the dry and hot summer months. The building has to respond to these extreme conditions by allowing enough shade and breeze during the summer and providing a waterproof indoor environment during the stormy monsoons. The screen of columns creates an ever-changing pattern of light and shadow throughout the seasons and times of the day, making the building a ‘sensor’ of light.Save this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT imagesThe walls are build in Indian limestone in a coarsed pattern, which make the house seem to rise out of the ground giving it a solid base. This is contrasted by the lightness of a suspended timber deck verandah which surrounds the house on three sides. The covered verandahs allow for comfortably ventilated and shaded semi-indoor spaces. Internally the timber floor continuous as a border around various patterned natural stone floors. In front of the living room the deck extends to form a large outdoor deck with a panoramic view of the surrounding landscapeSave this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT imagesProject gallerySee allShow lessCasa 2en1 / Gaztelu JerezSelected ProjectsPlate / Studio Takuya HosokaiSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Ariel Huber / EDIT images+ 28 Share CopyHouses•Karjat, India ArchDaily Architects: Architecture BRIO Area Area of this architecture project Houses The Riparian House / Architecture BRIOSave this projectSaveThe Riparian House / Architecture BRIO Photographs The Riparian House / Architecture BRIO Area:  330 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/783402/house-by-a-river-architecture-brio Clipboard “COPY”last_img read more

Principal retiring after more than three decades with ECISD

first_imgHome Local News Education Principal retiring after more than three decades with ECISD Pinterest Twitter Facebook Facebook Twitter Registration set for engineering camp WhatsApp OCA top 2 were ESL students Ector County ISD.San Jacinto Elementary. Local NewsEducation Principal retiring after more than three decades with ECISD Friends and family held a going away party for Principal Pam Walker last month in the San Jacinto Elementary Library. Walker’s best friend Carolyn Gonzalez signs a gift for Walker. “I used to sit my little brother down and play school with him. I always wanted to be a teacher,” Walker said. “… I love watching people grow.”Walker began her education at Odessa College, then earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a minor in psychology from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene and then a master’s in school leadership from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.She also took courses at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.Walker plans to spend more time with her family.One of Walker’s fondest experiences is the approximately two years she was in Ghana. She has unofficially adopted a family from that country.“The couple that I went with had gone over there on a mission trip with their church out of Colorado and felt called to go back and drill water wells. I was at their house in the summer right after they had been on that mission trip and they just started talking about the education need over there. I said, ‘I want to go,’ so I did,” Walker said.“I’m adventurous. I’ve always been that way. I went in ‘95 and I came back in ’97,” she added.It’s hard to put into words what it was like for her and the impact it made on her life.“It was a wonderful experience. I loved every minute that I was there. I loved getting to know a new culture and I really felt like I learned way more than I shared; I grew way more than I helped anybody else grow,” Walker said.The couple she went with was only there four months before they had to come back home and sell a business. They didn’t return for another year, so that last year, Walker was indoctrinated into the culture of Ghana.“I would go back in a heartbeat. I’ve been back twice since I left and I would still go back,” Walker said.The thing that changed for her after going to Ghana was she realized that teachers could instruct with the bare minimum and that education was very important to those students.“… I saw teachers teaching classes of 50 kids with their teacher manuals and chalk. The kids might have one of those little journal things and a pencil. But not all of them even had that. There were no student textbooks. There was no technology whatsoever. There wasn’t even air conditioning. You had the holes in the walls for windows and that was your air. In the village schools, they didn’t even have floors. Sometimes, they didn’t even have a building. They had school out under a tree, so it really was an eye opener. It’s not about the things you have,” Walker said.She added that the students felt privileged just to go to school because everybody pays to attend, whether it’s a public or private school.In the villages, Walker said, students walked to school carrying their chair on their head. If there wasn’t a school in their village, students would ride their bikes or walk to the nearest one.Through her years at San Jacinto, Walker has pulled the campus out of improvement required status under state accountability rules and helped it heal after its reconstitution.“I love watching people grow. … I love empowering people to do their job. Pulling San Jacinto from an IR campus up to where they are now was not me, it was my staff. I love watching them feel that power to turn things around to change things to make it right for kids,” Walker said.She added that San Jacinto has become much more successful in the last few years.“We have the smallest group of summer school kids that we’ve had since I’ve been here and mostly it’s because we believe in kids and we empower them to do what they need to do and we believe that they can do it,” Walker said.The biggest thing, she said, is knowing your data and which students need what.“There’s a saying that says, ‘My teacher believed that I was smarter that I was, so I was.’ That’s kind of our premise here is, too, if kids believe in themselves it makes a huge difference and your teachers have to believe in themselves, too,” Walker added.Walker said she knew relationships were important before she left for Africa, but her experienced reinforced it.“My premise has always been that relationships (are) the key. If the teachers can build that relationship with the kids and the kids know that that teachers love them and care, the kids will jump through hoops for them,” Walker added.San Jacinto teacher Christi Hickman has known Walker for 15 years and worked for her for the same number of years. She worked with Walker at Ireland and then at San Jacinto.“She stands out because she always does what is best for kids. Children and their well-being are her top priority. She gives students multiple chances to improve their attitude and behavior. She truly makes a difference in children’s lives,” Hickman said in an email.“As a person, Pam Walker is a true leader. She helps mentor teachers and tries to help them better themselves. She is kind, respectful and cares about her teachers,” Hickman added.Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Carolyn Gonzalez said she and Walker have been friends for more than 18 years.“We began the journey when I was named the principal of Gale Pond Alamo and she was their assistant principal. I believe the one characteristic Pam exemplifies above all others is empathy. Her compassion and relationship building are characteristics to be admired. She began transforming San Jacinto by first learning the staff and providing training that fit their needs. She accepts you, the person (whether student, teacher, community, friend), for what you are and is not afraid to challenge you to be better. She exemplifies a growth mindset!” Gonzalez wrote in an email.More Information Ector County Independent School District is seeing another of its longtime principals retire this year.Pam Walker, who has been with the district for 31 years and an educator for 37, is stepping down from her post at San Jacinto Elementary School. She has been principal there for four years.
