I started thinking and practicing about the middle area (‘engawa’, sunroom etc.) with the airlock entrance as a trigger. I was born and grew in cold climates and continued design while living there, so I began thinking about the middle area. At the beginning of my design I had a consciousness of “a middle area to protect”. It is a space “between” the human consciousness from the inner space to the outer space. This resembles the process of Alva Aalto architecture, which was built against the Northern European severity of nature.Save this picture!© Satoshi ShigetaPeople put themselves in the inner space, feeling the outer space from there, and touching it. The airlock entrance was made in cold district as a “middle area to protect” architecture that prevents cold air from flowing outside into the room during the winter season.Save this picture!© Satoshi ShigetaConventional airlock entrance is very narrow and cheap, it is installed to stick to the building. It plays an important role to improve the indoor environment, but its appearance and space are very sad. I thought that I wanted to treat it as a more enjoyable existence. In my private house, we ordinarily made the airlock entrance slightly installed at the entrance as big as the children’s room.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThen, vicinity was born there, a good sense of distance was created between the outside and the inside. In the space designed as ” a middle area to protect “, indoor activities will overflow in the summer. It was the “between” space consciousness towards the outside from the inside, it was not “between” from the outside to the inside.Save this picture!© Satoshi ShigetaNow, I am considering the possibility of “a middle area not only to protect”. It is to aim not only the severity of winter but also the middle area where you can enjoy all the conditions by thinking about the way of “between” from both inside and outside. In this plan, we placed a building in the center of the site. This is one option when setting a small footprint architecture in a limited residential section of a rural district, with limited conditions including cost. Although some hierarchy occurs depending on the direction and the neighboring state, “vacant lands” are born equally to the four sides of the building. When designing from the inside towards the vacant land (outside), the feeling of the person in the vacant land seemed important. I attempted to create a “between” from both directions that would not only be a large eaves as a base from the inside but also as a stronghold of humans from the outside. There are “four areas” in “four rectangles”. The first rectangle in the center of the building is the space in the most stable state. The second one is a semi-underground rectangle surrounding it, which is a thought and continuity space from the airlock entrance.Save this picture!© Satoshi ShigetaThe rectangle of the third large eaves beneath space and the rectangle of the fourth vacant land were designed as a multipurpose area, so I decided not to limit the function inside this area. Architecture is an existence born to obtain certain kind of stable state from the fickle state of the outside (earth). The airlock entrance is a response to a certain limited situation. I have made various designs while changing it and enlarging it. It is important that “between” from two-way is more free and does not limit the function. The elegant space under which the arms spread widely becomes a place of various activities of human beings and is full of possibilities to become a large middle area. The middle area dose not only responses to the environment but also response to human pleasures.Save this picture!© Satoshi ShigetaProject gallerySee allShow less2 Houses in Chigny / dieterdietz.orgSelected ProjectsWUJU JAE, JE / 100A associatesSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889112/four-rectangles-jun-igarashi-architects Clipboard Houses Four Rectangles / Jun Igarashi ArchitectsSave this projectSaveFour Rectangles / Jun Igarashi Architects Save this picture!© Satoshi Shigeta+ 18Curated by María Francisca González Share Photographs Projects Area:  120 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Iwaki, Japan Year:  ArchDaily Four Rectangles / Jun Igarashi Architects “COPY” 2017 “COPY” Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889112/four-rectangles-jun-igarashi-architects Clipboard Architects: Jun Igarashi Architects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeJun Igarashi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIwakiJapanPublished on February 16, 2018Cite: “Four Rectangles / Jun Igarashi Architects” 15 Feb 2018.

From the ‘July Days’ to the workers’ revolution in Russia 1917

first_imgAt the end of the abortive workers and sailors’ uprising in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) in July 1917, nearly all the leaders of the Bolshevik Party were in prison or in hiding, slandered as agents of German imperialism. Yet within months the same Bolshevik party was poised to seize power for the working class.These prisoners included the sailors Raskolnikov and his comrade Semyon Roshal from the hotbed of revolutionary fervor on the nearby island of Kronstadt, as well as Leon Trotsky and others from the national Bolshevik headquarters in the city center. Bolshevik leader V.I. Lenin and Grigory Zinoviev fled to Finland, where they stayed in hiding for fear of assassination. The Bolshevik headquarters was seized by the Provisional Government.The Bolsheviks’ real crime, of course, was not that they served the German Kaiser, but that they stood with the revolutionary proletariat in Russia instead of abandoning it. The Bolsheviks did this during the “July Days,” when a large section — but still a minority — of the working class went into the streets against the Provisional Government. This provisional bourgeois regime continued to force the Russian Army to fight in World War I despite the hatred of the masses for that war.Then came another turnaround that not only would lead to freeing the revolutionaries from prison, but also would put the Bolsheviks in a position to lead an insurrection.Czarist general Lavr Kornilov, in a conspiracy with the leaders of the provisional government, that is, Prime Minister Alexander Kerensky and other pro-bourgeois forces, promised to lead troops against Petrograd to carry out a coup against the left forces. It soon became apparent that these counterrevolutionary officers intended not only to arrest and kill Bolsheviks, but also to eliminate the entire provisional government that issued from the revolution that overthrew the monarchy in February and March.The only defense possible was one that depended on the masses, in particular the armed units of workers called the Red Guards. The parties in the government that feared a czarist counterrevolution absolutely needed the Bolsheviks to organize a defense because the revolutionary workers and sailors would follow orders only from the Bolsheviks. In return, the Bolsheviks would organize the defense of Petrograd only if the government freed their leaders and supplied them with arms for the workers.Bolsheviks freed from prisonFaced with the danger from czarist reaction, the government allowed the local soviet, now led by Bolsheviks, to take leadership of the Military Revolutionary Committee to defend Petrograd. There was still a threat of czarist reaction, but the Kornilov uprising itself had already collapsed for the same reason that czarist forces were incapable of suppressing the earlier revolution: The rank-and-file troops would not follow the orders of the czarist officers.Without troops to do the fighting, most of the officers that Kornilov had recruited found excuses to stay away from battle.In his book, “Kronstadt and Petrograd in 1917,” Fyodor Raskolnikov gives an example of how this happened with the “so-called ‘Savage Division,’ a cavalry division of volunteers from the (mainly Muslim) peoples of the Caucasus, who were exempt from conscription. The Bolshevik Party mobilized a delegation of Muslim notables who visited the advancing troops and explained that they had been misled as to the real situation in Petrograd.”As happened so often in those days, all it took was contact with the revolutionary workers of Petrograd to convince the troops to turn the guns around on their officers.By mid-October the Bolsheviks were a majority of the Petrograd Soviet and directed the Military Revolutionary Committee. The revolt of the troops against the Czar during the earlier “February Revolution” had been mostly spontaneous, with the troops changing consciousness as a result of contact with the striking workers of Petrograd, many of them women.Using the freer access to the soldiers they won in this revolution, the Bolsheviks carried on agitation and organization of the troops not only in Petrograd but also at the front. Troops formed their own organization, electing representatives to the Soviet of Workers and Soldiers, effectively breaking the chain of command.Meanwhile the sailors of Kronstadt and the Baltic Fleet were solidly with the revolution. On some ships hundreds of sailors had joined the Bolsheviks and were urging the soviets to take power in the name of the working class.The soldiers too were determined not to keep fighting the war against Germany. In his detailed memoir, “The Russian Revolution of 1917: a Personal Record,” the left-Menshevik N. N. Sukhanov wrote how representatives of regiments came in one by one to tell the Military Revolutionary Committee that they did not trust the Kerensky government and would rise up at the first call to overthrow it.By Oct. 21 (Nov. 3 according to the Western calendar), this included the Petrograd garrison, with its hundreds of thousands of soldiers. Petrograd and Russia were moving inexorably toward a second revolution.Troops change sidesThen a new crisis came up in the Petrograd Soviet. The army commandant of the Peter-Paul Fortress, most likely a pro-czarist officer, refused to recognize the commissar assigned to the fortress from the Military Revolutionary Committee and threatened him with arrest. This strategically important fortress inside Petrograd was essential to the victory of the planned uprising. But to attempt to take it by force was risky, an act of war. Sukhanov wrote:“Trotsky had another proposal, namely, that he, Trotsky, go to the Fortress, hold a meeting there, and capture not the body but the spirit of the garrison. … Trotsky set off at once, together with Lashevich. Their harangues were enthusiastically received. The garrison, almost unanimously, passed a resolution about the Soviet regime and its own readiness to rise up, weapons in hand, against the bourgeois government. … A hundred thousand extra rifles were in the hands of the Bolsheviks.”The national Congress of Soviets had been set for Oct. 25 (Nov. 7) in Petrograd. It would be a perfect time for this body to deliberate about taking state power. But the Provisional Government could still surround the congress with reactionary troops and arrest the Soviet.The Bolshevik leaders considered it more prudent to move first. No street clashes were necessary. All the street fighting had already happened in February (March). And it was no secret coup. The mainly Bolshevik leaders of the Military Revolutionary Committee openly declared their intention to protect the Congress of Soviets.The sailors of the Baltic Fleet, the workers who controlled the bridges, the Petrograd garrison, the soldiers at the Peter-Paul Fortress — all had already joined the revolution.  Under orders of the Soviet’s Military Revolutionary Committee on the night of October 24-25 (November 6-7), armed workers known as Red Guards and revolutionary sailors seized postal and telegraph offices, electric works, railroad stations and the state bank.That night at 9:45 p.m. a blank cannon shot rang out from the Cruiser Aurora, whose sailors were loyal to the Bolsheviks, anchored nearby in the Neva River. At this signal, thousands of sailors and Red Guards stormed the Winter Palace. The Provisional Government collapsed.Exhausted workers, soldiers and Bolshevik leaders crowded the Congress of Soviets that had been scheduled for Oct. 25 (Nov. 7). After word came that the Winter Palace was taken, people rose, filling the hall with shouts and cheers.  Lenin came to the podium and proclaimed, “We shall now proceed to construct the socialist order.”This was just the beginning. To sign a peace with Germany took months. There followed a long struggle and civil war before the Soviet Union could even be established. The Baltic Fleet sailors and armed workers of Petrograd became the shock troops of the Red Army, and many of these heroes, who were the driving force of the Russian Revolution, lost their lives in the costly civil war and invasion by Japan, Czechoslovakia, Britain, France, the United States and other capitalist countries that lasted until 1922.Nevertheless, the experience of 1917 in Russia showed that the interaction between the revolutionary workers and the soldiers of the Petrograd garrison as well as the decisive actions of the sailors of the Baltic Fleet made the success of the revolution possible.Adapted from a chapter of “Turn the Guns Around: Mutinies, Soldier Revolts and Revolutions” by John Catalinotto.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Growers are looking for ways to cut production costs this year, but cutting back on your weed control program is not the right answer. According to Jim Mintert with the Purdue Center for Commercial Ag, “If you reduce yields because you have poor weed control, you will push your cost per bushel much higher, as much as $3.00 per bushel if you had a 20% drop in yields because of poor weed control.”Jim MintertHe says the focus should not be on cutting costs but protecting yield, “Growers should not be thinking about what they can cut but what they need to do to maximize yields by having the best weed control program possible.” He added this includes not only the right product but also good management.Bill JohnsonPurdue Extension Weed Specialist Bill Johnson says, for soybean growers, using a residual herbicide is the best option, “We are recommending the use of residual products because for many of the products we do not have resistance issues. In addition, the patents on some of these products have expired which lowers the cost.” He urges growers who are going to cut some active ingredients out of their weed control program to make sure they are not cutting control of the weeds they know they have.The new Better Farming video is now on-line, you can watch the complete program at HAT.com.The Better Farming Report is made possible by Indiana soybean growers and their checkoff.last_img read more

Brian Arthur/ Press 22.by Kathy [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK will retain the dubious honour of being the only county with two mayors after local representatives defeated a motion calling on the Metropolitan District to replace the title of Metropolitan District Mayor with Cathaoirleach.Labour Party councillor Joe Leddin , who tabled the motion, said he did so “because of the respect I have for the office of Mayor”.“This situation has led to confusion. I have had people coming up to me asking ‘What are you doing having two Mayors?’. We are not doing justice to the people who are elected.“No-one can take our history away from us. But we are in a new era in terms of local government,” Cllr Leddin told a meeting of Metropolitan District councillors on Monday.Limerick City and County Council has had two Mayors since November after the majority of the 40-member full council voted to upgrade the title of Cathaoirleach to Mayor.Cllr Kevin Sheahan (FF) is Mayor of Limerick City and County, while Cllr Michael Sheahan (FG) is Mayor of the Metropolitan District.Cllr John Gilligan (IND) said: “I think it’s a dreadful idea to get rid of the Mayor of Limerick. It’s always been a huge part of civic life in Limerick.”Cllr Cian Prendiville said that the three Anti-Austerity Alliance members would abstain from voting on the motion because: “This is just boys and their toys. It’s all a distraction from the key issues.”“I don’t believe the merger is working in the best interests of the people of this city. We are a laughing stock out there having two Mayors,” remarked Cllr Maurice Quinlivan (SF).However, Cllr Shane Clifford (FF) disagreed saying: “The merger is barely 12 months old, I think it’s very unfair to say it isn’t working.”Mayor Michael Sheahan voted in favour of retaining the title of Metropolitan District Mayor alongside his Fine Gael party colleagues, the Fianna Fáil council members and Cllr Gilligan.Cllr Leddin, his party colleague Cllr Elena Secas and the three Sinn Féin Metropolitan District members all voted in favour of the motion.Speaking on Limerick’s Live 95FM after the meeting, Cllr Leddin pledged to petition Environment Minister Alan Kelly to change the legislation so Limerick will only have one Mayor.

He listed it in April for $8 million.Davis was a free agent when he put the mansion on the market, perhaps unsure whether he would remain in L.A.While a $900,000 loss is still a loss, Davis doesn’t have much reason to worry. Last month, he signed a five-year deal with the Lakers worth $190 million, after he and LeBron James led the team to the title in October.The 27-year-old has reportedly been renting a home in Bel Air for the last year or so.The Westlake Village home is a Mediterranean-style behemoth built in 1996 and later expanded.It has five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a full-length indoor basketball court, a home theater, and a slew of other top-shelf amenities. The basketball court has a scoreboard and a viewing area.The grounds total 2.3 acres. The backyard has a large infinity pool and views of the surrounding mountains. There’s also an outdoor kitchen, spa and a solar panel system.Westlake Village has seen a handful of notable deals in recent months.

Museums to receive funding

first_imgThe Museums of Oxford University are to be given a government grant of £7.874 million as part of the Museum, Libraries and Archives Council’s (MLA) “Renaissance in the Regions” scheme.The University Museum Group, made up of The Ashmolean, The University Museum of Natural History, the Pitt Rivers Museum, the Museum of the History of Scienceand the University of Oxford Botanic Gardens, is part of the South Eastern Hub of the MLA that will receive the funding.The University’s museums are keen to spend the additional government funding on its educational programmes in order to widen their range of visitors. Last year the museums saw 80,000 children visit with school groups.Estelle Morris, Minister for Arts, said, “Audiences have risen, and the number of school children visiting museums is up by 30 per cent, many of them from schools in England’s most deprived wards, thanks to such funding. The MLA have also provided support for the Pitt Rivers’ two-year ‘What’s Upstairs?’ project set for completion in 2006.”Dr Stephen Johnston, Assistant Keeper of the Museum of the History of Science, said, “We are obviously delighted that the money is there,” but added that it was too early to say how the grant will be spent. “Government funding of regional museums is something we are very supportive of,” said Johnson. “The Ashmolean is a welcome receiver of such funding, last year receiving £15m from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the largest single amount granted in 2004.”A spokesperson for the University said that the museums had been “chosen as flagships museums to lead the way, as well as providing leadership in museum modernisation and sharing the best practice for the museums and galleries community in that region.”Professor Nicholas Mayhew, Deputy Director of the Ashmolean Museum said, “Although most of Oxford’s museum funding comes through other channels, the ‘Renaissance in the Regions’ scheme should bring almost three times as much central government support to museums in the South East in 2007-8 compared with 2005-6.”“The extra government cash should enable Oxford University’s museums to continue with their popular education programmes and do more and more for the widest possible range of visitors,” Mayhew added.MLA Chair Mark Wood said, “England has some of the finest regional museums in the world, and with additional funding they have shown they can further increase their appeal to a broad sector of the population.”ARCHIVE: oth week TT 2005last_img read more
