White pavilionBuilding a house in a rural housing complex means meeting with nature and escaping from an apartment. So the meeting situation with nature becomes a clue to design for this project. In order to make the contact space with nature as a potential space, we created a pavilion space in the connection or extension of the outside and the inside. This space establishes iternal and external relations. You can go inside or outside through this space.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThis house can be perceived as a pavilion made of louvers from any direction, and this pavilion is both a space and a form. The contact points of nature and architecture are made into the pavilion space, which reveals the thin lines of white louver and the depth between them.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThe space of the boundary created by the white louver installed on the sphere of the building and the outside serves to reveal the point of contact with nature and to induce various relations and actions. In this space, the potential created by the fine lines and the depth between them is extended to the space. The devices of the louvers are giving strength to increase the potential of the space. It attempts to mix buildings and nature while creating a space that is not heavy and violent towards nature.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanTwo living spaced are composed inside with the spacing, and the light was filled in between.

Cuba is awaiting the return of Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino and Antonio Guerrero, the three of the Cuban 5 who remain unjustly held in U.S. prisons. Along with René González and Fernando González, who served their full sentences and returned to Cuba, these five men are heroes who risked their own lives to infiltrate Miami-based gangs who were bombing Cuban hotels and restaurants during the 1990s.The June 1 headlines in the U.S. big-business press detail the intricate negotiations, military planning and dangers involved with the return of a U.S. soldier who was sent to fight to make Afghanistan safe for corporate mineral extraction. The soldier was exchanged for five Afghan prisoners held at Guantanamo, the U.S. torture concentration camp occupying Cuban soil.“It should be easier to make a deal” in the case of the Cuban 5, writes Canadian author and journalism professor Stephen Kimber in a recent article. (tinyurl.com/mv67p3k)After all, Hernández is now completing his 16th year of not one but two life terms plus 15 years. He was convicted in a tainted Miami trial on a charge even the prosecutors admitted could not be proven and eventually tried to withdraw: conspiracy to commit murder in the shootdown of two private planes that repeatedly and intentionally violated Cuban airspace. Kimber points out that Hernandez was in Miami and could not have played any part in that decision. The U.S. government has refused to release satellite images that might definitively determine whether or not the planes were still in Cuban airspace.The real issue is that the U.S. ruling class has sought domination over Cuba since 1905. The imperialists must now face the reality of Cuban sovereignty and self-determination, which is building an economy and social system that prioritize developing human potential over profit. That is why Cuba excels in so many quality-of-life indicators like free universal education, health care and social security — even under a costly and damaging economic blockade imposed by the United States.It is time to end the injustice done to the Cuban 5 and begin a new era in U.S.-Cuba relations. That is what is bringing international delegations to Washington, D.C., for the third “5 Days for the Cuban 5.”For the complete schedule, go to 5DaysfortheCuban5.com.

Vallejo Police Department(NEW YORK) — Over four decades after a woman was sexually assaulted and killed, a suspect has finally been identified through the new, but growing, investigative tool of genetic genealogy.Naomi Sanders was found sexually assaulted and strangled to death on Feb. 27, 1973 inside her apartment in Vallejo, California, about 30 miles outside San Francisco.Sanders, 57, lived alone and was the onsite manager for the apartment complex, the Vallejo Police Department said.But the years ticked by without progress in her case.In 2014, forensic testing was completed on the clothes Sanders was wearing when she was killed, and analysts found a semen stain, said police.A DNA profile was developed from the stain and entered into the law enforcement database Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) — but there was no match, police said.Detectives said they continued to run the DNA profile against new people when they were added to CODIS, still without a match.In 2016, detectives tried familial DNA technology, which allowed them to search the California DNA database and wider DNA databases in other states for people related to the unknown suspect, police said. Again, they didn’t get a hit.Police said the break in the case finally came when authorities started to look into genetic genealogy in 2018.Through genetic genealogy, an unknown killer’s DNA left at a crime scene can be identified through his or her family members, who voluntarily submit their DNA to a genealogy database. This allows police to create a much larger family tree than using law enforcement databases like CODIS.Genetic genealogy first came to light as an investigative tool in April 2018 when the suspected “Golden State Killer” was arrested through the technique. Since then, over 100 suspects have been identified through the technology, according to Parabon NanoLabs Chief Genetic Genealogist CeCe Moore, who worked on the Sanders case.After working through the family tree of Sanders’ unknown killer in April 2019, analysts were able to zero-in on two persons of interest, authorities said.Detectives went to Louisiana in 2019 where they collected a discarded item from one of those persons of interest, police said. They tested the DNA from that item, but didn’t get a match, so they eliminated the man as a suspect, police said.That left police with the second person of interest — who was dead and had been cremated, they said.Authorities contacted one of his sons and collected his DNA, which determined that Sanders’ suspected killer was Robert Dale Edwards, the Vallejo police announced Thursday.Edwards was a 22-year-old living in Vallejo at the time of the crime, police said. Detectives learned that Edwards’ father was a co-worker of Sanders, police said.He had a criminal history, including attempted murder, assault and domestic violence, police said.Edwards died in 1993 of a drug overdose, police said.Sanders’ family released a statement through the police department, saying so many relatives over the last 46 years “have also passed, and, unfortunately, they cannot be afforded the truth as to what happened.”“Those of us who do remember the stories of Naomi’s life and untimely death can now feel closure thanks to the determination and teamwork of the Vallejo Police Department and partnering law enforcement agencies,” the family said.“May Naomi now rest in peace,” her family said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Atlantic Development Group built the 143-unit luxury high-rise between East Fourth and East Fifth streets in 2010. Two years later, Wafra Capital Partners purchased the 70-year leasehold for $134 million, then sold it in 2019 to Emerald Equity and Werner for $85 million — a $50 million loss.The investors charged some of the highest rents on the Bowery, with a three-bedroom apartment asking $20,000 per month. The luxury building features amenities such as a rooftop pool and a gym.In 2019, Equity and Werner took out a CMBS loan securitized by the asset with Goldman Sachs, with an underlying occupancy of 96 percent. But occupancy has dipped this year, hovering at just 82 percent for the first three quarters of 2020.Vacancies have plagued rental buildings in Manhattan. In October, the vacancy rate reached 5.75 percent while the total number of listings reached a 14-year high, at 15,923.Elsewhere in its portfolio, Emerald Equity has also fallen behind. Its lender, Ladder Capital, moved to foreclose after the firm defaulted on a $32 million loan for four of its Harlem rental buildings.Read moreCheap NYC apartments sit vacantTRD Talks surging vacancies on WNYC Share via Shortlink
Back to overview,Home naval-today JS Kunisaki Arrives for Pacific Partnership 2014 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Arrives View post tag: Navy View post tag: asia JS Kunisaki Arrives for Pacific Partnership 2014 View post tag: Pacific Partnership 2014 View post tag: Philippines The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force’s JS Kunisaki (LST 4003), carrying a multinational crew of U.S., Australian, Malaysian and Japanese personnel, arrived in Tacloban July 4 as part of Pacific Partnership 2014 (PP14). July 7, 2014 The ship and its roughly 300 embarked personnel arrived nearly eight months after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the region.The 10-day operation consists of professional medical exchanges, including providing basic medical, dental, and optometry clinics; several professional medical knowledge exchange seminars; and veterinary surgical and vaccination services.Seabees from Amphibious Construction Battalion One and Naval Mobile Construction Battalion One have already begun working with members from the Armed Forces Philippines on four construction projects at three separate sites, and the U.S. Pacific Fleet Band will conduct several public performances.Pacific Partnership is the largest annual multinational humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission in the Indo-Asia-Pacific. Although the U.S. Pacific Fleet-led mission provides tangible assistance to the local community, by definition its intention and purpose is to better prepare for emergencies and disaster situations such as was experienced less than a year ago by the city of Tacloban during Typhoon Haiyan.“It’s obvious to see why we were invited to Tacloban given what they’ve been through. There is a lot of work to be done here, but many different organizations and nations are currently doing some great work,” said U.S. Navy Lt. Ron Piramide, PP14 Philippine team officer in charge.Kunisaki has already visited Vietnam and Cambodia, and the Republic of the Philippines is the last stop for this year’s mission. The Southern portion of Pacific Partnership, conducted by Task Force Forager, an expeditionary command element from the Navy’s 30th Naval Construction Regiment and led by Capt. Rod Moore, provided assistance to the host nations of Indonesia and Timor-Leste.Pacific Partnership is in its ninth iteration and is the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the Asia-Pacific region.[mappress]Press Release, July 07, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Naval View post tag: JS Kunisaki Authorities Share this article
