Wave Housing is situated in Otes, the suburban neighbourhood of Sarajevo, with the river and mountains as its close and distant surroundings. In order to extend the interior space of the apartment towards outside and the views, the wave-like structure is added to the regulated building volume from 2nd floor upwards. In this way, each unit is given a lavish and unique outdoor area/terrace, making it a defining architectural element of the project. While the inner facade of the building is clad in warm wooden ribs, outside is kept simple in white plaster with metal screens providing additional visibility protections to the apartment terraces.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Anida KrečoSave this picture!© Anida KrečoSave this picture!Save this picture!© Anida KrečoProduct Description: Local materials Facade: Composite wooden vertical panels 4x4cm made from local spruce and fir tree.

NYC Disability Pride parade targets potential service cuts

first_imgWWP contingent in Disability Pride parade.On a glorious Sunday morning, after a thunderstorm had cleared the air, thousands of disabled New Yorkers with their friends and families walked, rode, rolled and scooted down Broadway from Madison Square Park to Union Square Park in the July 15 Disability Pride Parade.  A festival was scheduled at the end of the parade.Spirits were high.  Concerns about the heat had been raised in social media by many groups, including the NY Peoples Power Assemblies. The PPA had carried out a vigorous “We Want the Shade” campaign to reverse the route so the parade would end at Madison Square Park and the three-hour festival could be held in the shade.  Many disabled people are adversely affected by excessive heat. In 2015, three participants had been hospitalized due to heat exhaustion.As a result of this campaign, the city spent a significant amount on two large tents to provide shade in the paved, treeless part of the park where the festival was held.The theme of the parade was “Express Yourself” and prizes were awarded to the most creative.  The feeling was definitely celebratory. Two men sitting on benches played bongo drums. Wheelchair dancing took place in a designated area in front of the stage. At one point, a wheelchair user threw her hands up in joy as her partner twirled her around several times.  “Move whatever you’ve got — a toe, a head, an arm” encouraged the emcee.Protest serious cutbacksAt 12:15 p.m., disabled people gathered in front of the stage to protest Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s threat to close the Independent Care System, which provides essential services that enable disabled people to live at home.Wheelchair user Sharifa Abu-Hamda, founder of the Civic League for Disability Rights, thrilled the excited crowd with a speech demanding Cuomo end his horrific plan to close ICS.  She emphasized that the Civic League has fought to protect Medicaid, to maintain funding for wheelchairs and equipment, and to make public transit more accessible.She explained that “today we are fighting to save Independent Care Systems also known as ICS.  ICS exists for one reason: to make sure that people like me, people with physical disabilities, are able to live independently.  No other insurance does that.“Governor Cuomo is planning to close ICS.  He says we will be able to get the same services from any other plan we enroll in.  That is not true. The state wants to close ICS to save money, and the only way to do that is to cut our services.  Because of my condition, I need 24-hour home care, which ICS pays for. No other plan has ICS’s disability expertise.  ICS made it possible for me to work and live in my own home [and] undergo complicated surgery and emerge in good health when my own doctors did not have a clue how to make that happen.  My story is multiplied thousands of times. …“We have the right to live independently with dignity instead of being locked up in institutions.  Governor Cuomo: Save ICS.”Some 50 wheelchair users then surrounded the stage.  Holding up a handmade paper sign reading “ICS Is the Best,” they chanted, “Save ICS!” for more than 15 minutes.Disability rights movement more diverse than everThe inspiring list of participating organizations included:Access-VR, Achilles International, Actors’ Equity Association, ADAPT Community Network, Adaptive Climbing Group, Advocates for Disabled Americans, AHRC, Art Beyond Sight, AYC Access LLC, Barrier Free Living,  Brain Injury Association of NYS, Bronx Independent Living Services, Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled, Center for Independence of the Disabled NY, Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Champs for Autism, Civic League for Disability Rights, Co-op City Disabilities and Accommodations Committee, Community Access NYC, CWA Local 1180, Disability Community at Bronx Community Board 9, Disability Rights New York, Disability Pride NYC, Disabled in Action, Diversability, EPIC Players Inclusion Company, GallopNYC, Haiti Autism 509, Harlem Independent Living Center, Hearing Loss Association of America NYC, INCLUDEnyc, Independence Care System (ICS), Innovative Resources for Independence, InTandem, LI Adapt, Museum Access Consortium, National Federation of the Blind NYC Chapter, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Organization on Disability, New York Nurses Association, Northwell Health Rehabilitation Network, NYC Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, NYU Initiative for Women with Disabilities, Parents to Improve School Transportation, Peoples MTA, Peoples Power Assemblies NY, Planned Parenthood NYC, ReelAbilities Film Festival, Rise and Resist/Elevator Action Group, SAG-AFTRA, TCNJ Disability Pride, Theater Breaking Through Barriers, United Spinal Association, Workers World Party and YAI.The grand marshal of the parade was Judy Heumann, a wheelchair user who pioneered the disability rights movement.  As a student at Long Island University, she organized disabled students to fight for ramps. She sued her school district for the right to teach.  In 1970, she founded Disabled in Action, a vanguard group in the disability civil rights movement. In 1977, she took part in a 28-day sit-in for disability rights in San Francisco.  In 1981, she helped found the World Institute on Disability.More than 30 signs prepared by Workers World Party, Peoples Power  Assemblies, Peoples MTA and Parents to Improve School Transportation were handed out through the crowd, some enthusiastically mounted on wheelchairs.  Issues included the police killings of disabled people, lack of elevators and access to the subway system, and defending Medicaid, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and ICS.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Schweitzer, and his wife Maria Schweitzer, spearheaded a fundraiser to benefit Foothill Unity Center’s Pediatric Mobile Dental Clinic.The Circle of Friends event was hosted on Saturday afternoon, June 25, at the Pasadena home of Annette and Sheldon Bull and was able to raise more than $21,000 for non-profit community support organization that distributes food and provides services to very low-income families and individuals in the San Gabriel Valley.The donations came from an intimate Circle of Friends of about 30 guests. Don and Maria Schweitzer first thanked Annette and Sheldon Bull for hosting the annual Circle of Friends Fundraiser for the second year then reported on the encouraging results.“Each year we host this event, we’re on eggshells leading up to the event not knowing if we’ll be able to reach our goal of surpassing the previous year’s donations to benefit Foothill Unity Center’s Pediatric Mobile Dental Clinic,” the Schweitzers said. “This year we were blown away by the outpour of support. Within the first five minutes, we raised $15,000 and went on to raise over $21,000 for this worthy cause. We are so grateful for the continued and new support of friends who attended the event.”The campaign continues through August 3 to raise more money for the Mobile Dental Clinic. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the clinic, Don and Maria Schweitzer said. They hope to present a check for $25,000 to the Foothill Unity Center at their annual Back to School Event in August.Founded in 1980, Foothill Unity Center is the primary provider of food, case management/crisis help, and access to health care resources across eleven San Gabriel Valley cities: Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Monrovia, Bradbury, Duarte, Azusa, Baldwin Park and Irwindale.Seventy-nine percent of the Center’s clients are at or below the National Poverty Level. Over the last five years, the number of people served by the organization has more than tripled.The federally designated California Action Agency for the Foothill Area operates locations in Monrovia and Pasadena.To donate online, visit this link: www.foothillunitycenter.z2systems.com/np/clients/foothillunitycenter/donation.jsp?campaign=5&%20.Past Mobile Dental Clinic events may be viewed through this video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6Rj_pssHrc.For more information about Foothill Unity, please visit their website at www.foothillunitycenter.org. center column 3 Pasadena Fundraiser Raises More than $21,000 for Foothill Unity Center From STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, July 14, 2016 | 2:27 pmcenter_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy HerbeautyKate Beckinsale Was Shamed For Being “Too Old” To Wear A BikiniHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNow She’s 19 – Look At Her Transformation!

It is crucial to raise awareness of the importance of trees and all their uses which ranges from cleaning the air we breathe to providing a habitat for many species of animals and plants.“There is a wonderful Spanish Chestnut tree located in front of Bunratty House which is registered on the Tree Register of Ireland due to its status as an ‘Exceptional Specimen Tree’. Maybe the trees that the children have planted today will one day be just as historic as that one”.

€1.5 million boost for five County Limerick towns from Rural Regeneration…

Resettlement of populations in the core of towns and villages is needed for their sustainable development.Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Sheahan said: “This is a significant day for rural County Limerick. The five towns and villages as part of this project will see derelict properties be brought back into use, primarily as housing.“This will help rejuvenate the centres of these towns and villages, which have been in decline over the past decade or so.” he said.Welcoming the announcement Gordon Daly, Director of Community Development with Limerick City and County Council said: “This funding is a major boost in our battle against dereliction and efforts to harness the potential of our small towns and villages in County Limerick.“The ability to work from home, improving broadband and greater awareness of the social and economic benefits of living in small towns and villages means there is an increasing demand for housing in these settlements.”“This project will aim to match supply to this demand and at affordable prices.” he added.Limerick City and County Council is one of the most pro-active local authorities in the country dealing with dereliction and has a specific unit in place since 2018.In the past 18 months, the Council has commenced the compulsorily purchase of 56 derelict properties using its powers under the Derelict Sites Act 1990, with many of these now acquired by the Council.The Rural Regeneration and Development Fund is a commitment by the government to invest €1 billion in rural Ireland between 2019 and 2027.The purpose of the fund is to support job creation, address de-population of rural communities and support improvements in towns and villages with a population of less than 10,000, and outlying areas.Limerick projects funded previously include: Great Southern Greenway Limerick, Glenbrohane Local Hub, Murroe Community Hub, International Mountain Biking Project in Ballyhoura.
