Kuvasz house is set on top of a dune in the forest of Carilo, an area with few neighbors in front of an un-plotted forest reserve.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaThe house was planned for the owner’s use during low season and for rental in high season. Practical requirements were set: amount of bathrooms, bedrooms, services, and other basic items for an unknown user.Save this picture!© Estudio GaleraFrom a conceptual point, Kuvasz was designed as a path that accompanies and rises to the sand-dune, touching the lot in a few spots, respecting and highlighting the current topography. The path ends in the social program, as a lookout resting on the crest of the dune.

The roof slab turns into a pergola and slits open the lateral enclosure allowing sunlight and views of the outside; the wall does not reach the floor, transforming itself into a bench and opens as a mouth, creating a transitional space between the house and the forest.Save this picture!© Diego MedinaMateriality and the use of natural light as a resourceArchitecture is connected to technology, but is also connected to phenomenology, the sensorial elements and the context in which one works with.

Similarly, online publishers can use three banner adverts, available in 468 x 60 (banner), 120 x 90 (button), and 120 x 600 (skyscraper) sizes. Howard Lake | 7 February 2005 | News The email campaign is a cold request, sourced from media disk. This is odd given that Comic Relief should have a list of some of the 60,000 website publishers who helped to “Turn the Web Red” in 2001.Nevertheless, Comic Relief once again demonstrate how it is possible to ask and secure considerable free publicity both online and offline. The easier you make it for publishers by providing ready to use content the more likely it is they will use the material.This lesson could have been learned by the DEC recently in its tsunami appeal. The organisation did not make banner and button adverts available for supporters to place on their site.However, Comic Relief did slip up this year. They made no mention of the web address to which the donated banners should be linked. It might be obvious (www.rednoseday.com) but it makes sense to be absolutely clear. Once again Comic Relief is seeking free advertising space in the run up to Red Nose Day.It is contacting print and online publishers by email with details of three print adverts and three banner adverts that can be used to promote Red Nose Day. The print adverts feature comedian Graham Norton and can be downloaded from the Red Nose Day site. Advertisement

In January 2005 she received a lead gift of £250,000.Robert Vincent, past chairman of Buzzacott, will explain how he is running an appeal on the traditional patrons/chair/committee model. Advertisement Howard Lake | 29 March 2005 | News Ian Kerr, of Midas Appeals said: “Many fundraisers find capital appeals increasingly problematic. Securing the services of an influential chairman and committee representative of the funds to which the appeals will go are often mentioned as special problems. “This seminar will look at case material from all sizes charity, but particular emphasis will be given to less popular causes such as the homeless, the deaf, disabilities, and charities without a clearly defined constituency from which to draw funds.”“Effective Capital Appeals: How to Plan and Manage a Capital Appeal” will be held from 10.00 to 16.30 on 7 April 2005 at Help the Hospices, London WC1.

Howard Lake | 15 November 2006 | News Tagged with: Ireland 18 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Charity workers collecting clothes on doorsteps have been threatened by gangs working for bogus charities, Irish newspapers have reported. In one incident the legitimate collector had his tyres slashed and bags of clothes were taken from him. The Irish Times conducted a random check on eight ‘charities’ collecting clothes and only two could be verified as genuine. It is thought that most of the non charity collectors are actually commercial concerns which can sell the clothes on for profit. Charities in the Irish Republic act in a legal grey area as there is no register of charities. No arrests have been made of commercial company employees posing as charity collectors. This situation will be addressed in new legislation due for implementation next year which will require that all charities register.

It will begin making grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 in 2009 and will be developing its funding criteria and grant application procedure over the next few months. It will initially be based in an office at the Women’s Resource Centre, London.There will also be a public fundraising campaign. Developed by creative agencies Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe Y&R and Burnett Works, the online campaign will ask donors to make a gift to the new organisation in the name of an inspirational woman in their lives.The name Rosa was selected because it is recognisable not just as an English language name but has international recognition as well. Rosa is also the first name of three outstanding historical female activists: Rosa Luxemburg, the German socialist leader; Rosa May Billingshurst, the British suffragette; and Rosa Parks, the African-American civil rights activist.

The exhibition is our way of doing that and we can’t wait for it to get started!”Morph at 40Peter Lord, co-creator of Morph. Photo: Matt CrockettAnimated clay character Morph made his TV debut in 1977 in the children’s BBC programme Take Hart. He was created by Peter Lord and David Sproxton and produced for the BBC by Aardman. He lived in a wooden pencil box on the desk of the artist and show host, Tony Hart, and generally got into mischief. He was later joined by his cream-coloured pal, Chas, who was much more badly behaved.Morph was a regular fixture on children’s television throughout the 70’s and 80’s. Despite a long hiatus from TV screens, he retained a strong following among his original fans, now adults, many of whom called via social media for a comeback. So in 2013, Morph launched a successful campaign on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website which resulted in a brand-new series that premiered on his dedicated YouTube channel.David Sproxton, co-creator of Morph.

More “inside” actions in the National Prison Strike have been reported since the Aug. 28 roundup in Workers World. (tinyurl.com/y9ssw4sa) The strike was originally called by Jailhouse Lawyers Speak for Aug. 21 through Sept. 9. One key strike demand, “End prison slavery!” refers to widespread state and corporate exploitation of prisoners who receive no or little compensation for work. This slavery is still permitted under the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.North Carolina – Despite denying prisoner protest or strikes to the media, the North Carolina Department of Public Services privately admits in its infraction forms that prisoners are being thrown into segregation for strike organizing. There are rumors from prisoners of strike participation at 11 North Carolina facilities, with confirmation of organizers being put in segregation in at least two prisons. (Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee)South Carolina – Prisoners are reportedly on strike in Broad River, Lee, McCormick, Turbeville, Kershaw and Lieber correctional institutions. The actions include widespread workstrikes, with only a few prisoners reporting to their jobs, and commissary boycotts. (Jailhouse Lawyers Speak)Georgia – Prisoners in the main maximum state security facility, Georgia State Prison—Reidsville, have reported a strike. (JLS)Florida – Five Florida facilities are evidently seeing strike activity: Charlotte Correctional reports 40 refusing work and 100 boycotting commissary. Dade Correctional prisoners say 30 to 40 on strike. Franklin Correctional reports 30 to 60. Holmes Correctional reports 70. Appalachee Correctional reports an unknown number. (JLS)Texas – In solidarity with the national strike, two prisoners in a Gulf prison messaged they are on hunger strike in segregation, as is Robert Uvalle in Michael Unit, Anderson County, who has been in solitary for most of his 25 years inside. (IWOC)Indiana – Prisoners in the segregation unit at Wabash Valley Correctional Institution began a hunger strike Aug. 27, demanding adequate food and an end to cold temperatures in the unit. (IWOC)Washington state – Twenty people detained at Northwest Detention Center were sent to segregation on Aug. 30 after they, and eventually at least 30 others, demanded an end to a new requirement that they stand up as the warden enters each pod. NWDC is a private immigration prison located in Tacoma. On Aug. 21, about 200 people at NWDC went on hunger strike in solidarity with the National Prison Strike; about 60 people continue to hunger strike into a second week.
