Cabin on Flathead Lake / Andersson Wise Architects

first_img Houses Photographs:  Art GrayText description provided by the architects. Locals call the granite and shale cliff overlooking Montana’s Flathead Lake “The Matterhorn”. It is a place to observe the natural world: the lake, the surrounding ponderosa pine forest, and especially the eagles and ospreys that nest nearby. Together, the water, cliff, and trees form a classic picture of the expansive American West, and it is clear why Montana is still known as North America’s great destination.

Screened walls enclose a living area, which has an open floor plan and wood slat floors that extend outside. Amenities are sparse but not neglected: a small kitchen, bathroom, and shower allow guests an overnight stay. The cabin has no heating or cooling system and running water is pumped from the lake below.

U.S. actions say ‘Free the Cuban 5’

0 Comments

first_imgGerardo Hernández Nordelo, Antonio Guerrero Rodríguez, Fernando González Llort, Ramón Labañino Salazar, and Rene González Sehewert.Sept. 12 is the 16th anniversary of the day when police snatched five Cuban men from their beds. Three of them — Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino and Gerardo Hernández — remain in U.S. prisons, serving long terms. Vindictively, a U.S. court sentenced Hernández to a term of double-life plus 15 years. In the intensifying campaign to free them, these courageous men are known around the world as the Cuban 5.In the U.S., demonstrations, car caravans and other events are planned to mark the date in Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Minneapolis, New York and Washington, D.C. Because the decision to end the 16 years of injustice is in the hands of President Barack Obama, the Washington, D.C., events will include a picket of the White House at noon on Sept. 12. Also, the first exhibit of new paintings by Antonio Guerrero will be shown on Sept. 13, at 6 p.m., at the Service Employees International Union building, at 1800 Massachusetts Ave. It will be followed by a panel discussion there.Other pro-Cuban 5 events will include lobbying Congress, a reception at ImpactHub DC and an activity by the Takoma Park Committee to Free the Cuban 5. All expand the activities in the U.S. capital city.Heroes against terrorIn the 1990s, paramilitary gangs in south Florida began provocative small plane incursions over Havana and a bombing campaign, which hit key targets in Cuba’s fledgling tourist industry — hotels and restaurants. To protect innocents like Fabio DiCelmo, a young Italian businessman who was killed in a Sept. 4, 1997 bombing of Havana’s Hotel Copacabana, Cuba sent its State Security agents to infiltrate and provide information on the Miami-based perpetrators of this terror campaign. Any objective assessment that is removed from the prism of the U.S. campaign to reconquer socialist Cuba would regard these men as heroes.On this terrible anniversary, voices from around the world and in the U.S. are telling the Obama administration: “Enough is Enough! Free the Cuban 5 now!” and send them home to their families where they belong.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Wisconsin marchers support immigrants

0 Comments

first_imgA 300-person-strong march was held in support of immigrants’ rights in Madison, Wis., on Feb. 11. The march was organized under the auspices of the José Rea campaign. Rea is a candidate for Madison City Council, District 14 — an ethnically diverse, working-class neighborhood. Wisconsin Bail Out The People Movement organizers and Workers World Party friends attended.Starting in Brittingham Park at midday, participants marched a mile north to the Dane County Executive Office where several speeches and performances were given. The Omeyocan Dance Company performed a traditional Aztec dance, and later the Ho-Chunk Nation of Wisconsin gave a dance performance.The event was a powerful testament to the fighting spirit of the multinational working class. Multiple self-identified Latinx women took to the microphone, and most speeches were in both Spanish and English. One college student read “A Litany for Survival,” a poem by the Black feminist-socialist poet Audre Lorde. Many revolutionary groups were present.Groups supporting the immigrants’ rights march included Jewish Voice for Peace, Students for Justice in Palestine and other anti-Zionist organizers. The cause of anti-Zionism has unfortunately been stymied in Madison until fairly recently. Pro-Palestine signs brought an international perspective, further connecting the struggles of oppressed communities at home and abroad.For more information on upcoming peoples’ events in Wisconsin, visit www.wibailoutpeople.org or facebook.com/workersworldpartywisconsin.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

At North Carolina colleges, ‘Safe Jobs Save Lives’

0 Comments

first_imgChapel Hill, N.C.At 2:15 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14 — as the first week of in-person classes at the University of North Carolina wound to a close — the independent student newspaper, the Daily Tarheel, made the announcement: “BREAKING: Carolina Housing reported two COVID-19 clusters today.”UE 150 organized an action at North Carolina State University in Raleigh on Aug. 6. NCSU, the only UNC System school larger than UNC-Chapel Hill, also reopened for in-person classes on Aug. 10. Credit: UE150The UNC-Chapel Hill administration’s communications team finally acknowledged the spread of infection half an hour later and issued a campus alert. The administrators had spent months fighting students, workers, local and state governments, the N.C. Department of Health, virtually every local community group — and the very concept of human dignity — to push forward an in-person reopening.The University of North Carolina, a statewide system of 16 colleges and universities, wields considerable indirect power over the entire higher education sector in the state. This is reflected in the in-person openings underway at nearby private schools Duke University and Elon College. The UNC System is the largest employer in North Carolina — the only state in the South where Walmart is not the largest employer. The system operates five Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the state’s only historically designated  Native university. The system directly employs around 45,000 workers and many more contractors, teaches 240,000 students, and has a much-multiplied total economic impact.The unelected Board of Governors is mainly made up of generationally wealthy white men in financial and real estate industries, all steadfastly loyal to the white nationalist vision of the North Carolina Republican Party. The board exercises complete institutional control over the state’s higher-level public schools. The massive UNC schools similarly exercise significant control and influence over the cities and counties where they are located — many of these predominantly Black, Latinx and/or Indigneous communities. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, the UNC Board decided that the lives and well-being of workers and students were unimportant. Against all recommendations, and with many alternative options, the board ordered in-person instruction would resume in the fall semester.Safe Jobs Save Lives campaignFortunately, before the school reopening, the ambitious Safe Jobs Save Lives Campaign of the Southern Workers Assembly was raised up in the UNC System by the North Carolina Public Service Workers Union, United Electrical Workers Local 150 (UE150),  along with community groups and the N.C. chapter of the American Association of University Professors. AAUP is the professional association that operates as a union at the college level. This is particularly useful for education workers in states with “right-to-work-for-less,” Jim Crow-era laws that ban public sector worker collective bargaining.For months the campaign put out a vision for a safer UNC: safer conditions on the job for essential workers, from hazard pay to personal protective equipment; solidarity with international workers who are under threat from Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as COVID-19; and demands for students, instructors and communities to move instruction online and open campuses only when safely possible.No stranger to the struggle with the UNC System, UE has fought austerity programs that have harmed education workers and their universities for years. To its credit, UE won a $15 minimum wage for state workers in 2017.UE workers predicted both the current spread of COVID-19 on campus and the administration’s complicity in that. On July 17, UE hosted a Town Hall for workers and student organizers throughout the UNC System.UNC groundskeeper David Branagn said: “One thing that struck me is that no one seemed to be paying any attention to the increased vulnerabilities of our housekeepers, our Black workers, especially Black women, our Latinx workers and Asian workers. … That is absolutely immoral.”Said Lakisha Morgan, UE 150 member and housekeeper at North Carolina State University: “There needs to be some sort of initiative taken where we can understand what’s going to work. There should never be a situation where someone wakes up to the news that there is a COVID-19 outbreak in their workplace. That’s unacceptable.”After the Town Hall, UE followed up with direct actions around the state, including during dormitory move-ins, marches on the administration and petition deliveries. Now a class action lawsuit is underway.Jermany Alston, UE150 steward and housekeeper at UNC-CH, is the lead plaintiff: “We bring UNC the concerns, and the administrators say they’re going to fix it, but nothing ever comes of it. It gets swept under the rug. Workers are scared to complain about what’s going to happen to their health. UNC doesn’t care about us; they just want us to be here to work. It’s wrong. UNC doesn’t care about us, but we are here helping them out, and we could put our families in jeopardy. Something needs to be done.”It will be sometime before the suit is resolved, and labor law is stacked against workers in the state. Meanwhile, UE and workers are rising to the challenge to defend themselves and their community.All around North Carolina, workers united are saying, “Safe Jobs Save Lives!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

REBNY, Legal Aid team up to push for more rental assistance

0 Comments

first_imgShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Legal Aid’s Judith Goldiner and REBNY’s James Whelan have teamed up. (Getty, REBNY, Legal Aid) Talk about strange bedfellows. United by a desire to help New Yorkers pay rent — and thus, make landlords’ lives easier — the Real Estate Board of New York and Legal Aid Society have teamed up on a new lobbying push.The two groups have joined forces with an existing effort, dubbed “Project Parachute,” that has pressured lawmakers to provide more rental assistance to tenants who are struggling because of the pandemic, the Wall Street Journal reported. Enterprise Community Partners launched the effort, which now has more than 100 participants.Among its goals are relaxing the requirements for the state’s Family Homelessness Eviction Prevention Supplement program, and expanding the eligibility rules for current rental assistance programs.The alliance may come as a shock to those who have closely followed the tenant-landlord battles of the past few years. REBNY has supported a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the 2019 rent law, which was initially filed by the Rent Stabilization Association and Community Housing Improvement Program. Legal Aid later filed a motion to intervene in the case on behalf of tenants.“I don’t expect this to be like, all of a sudden, we’re going to be besties,” said Judith Goldiner, an attorney in Legal Aid’s civil law reform unit.But getting rental assistance to New Yorkers is in the best interest of both groups. A recent study estimated that New Yorkers are now behind about $2 billion in rent, which leads to problems for landlords who still need to pay their mortgages and other operating expenses.The state’s Division of Homes and Community Renewal has been criticized for the rollout of its rent relief program for those facing financial hardship because of the pandemic. Last year, the state denied rent relief to tens of thousands of applicants, and was at risk of losing millions of dollars in federal funds set aside for tenants. The program recently reopened to those who need assistance.[WSJ] — Amy Plitt  Share via Shortlinkcenter_img TagsCoronavirusEvictionsPoliticsREBNYResidential Real Estatelast_img read more

Jim James Shares Danny Clinch-Directed Live Video Of “Throwback” From Brooklyn Show [Pro-Shot]

0 Comments

first_imgOn May 22nd, Jim James stoked excitement for his upcoming album, Uniform Distortion, by performing the album in its entirety for a group of lucky fans at Brooklyn’s intimate record store/venue Rough Trade NYC. Today, he has released a new pro-shot video of the live debut of the Uniform Distortion single, “Throwback“, from last month’s Rough Trade show. The video is directed by renowned photographer, filmmaker, and musician Danny Clinch.Jim James – Throwback (Live at Rough Trade Records)[Video: jimjamesVEVO]As James explained in a press release when “Throwback” was released late last month:I wrote this song doing pretty much what you are probably doing right at this very second: scrolling thru social media. It struck me as SO wild – how, as you scroll back in time through someone’s account, you watch their face grow younger…but as you do this, REAL TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!!! The clock is ticking…instead of doing good work or creating love or taking a walk in nature, I am here STARING AT MY FUCKING PHONE!!!! ha ha ha. Don’t get me wrong – social media is an amazing tool…but I think we should look at it more like a tool, like a hammer you pick up for a little while to do a job, and then you PUT IT DOWN. You don’t sit there and keep hammering away or else pretty soon your entire world would be destroyed and fall apart! And I feel like that is exactly what is happening right before our very eyes to this precious real beautiful human-filled earth. So lets WAKE EACH OTHER UP PEOPLE! Lets stand up against injustice and use this tool of social media to fight for peace and love and equality! Let’s throwback for a minute, but try and live in the NOW for a better future. Thanks for listening.Read Jim James’ original explanation of the full album here. Uniform Distortion is set for a June 29th release via ATO Records.Jim James is also preparing to hit the road for a tour of historic venues, during which he’ll play songs from throughout his career.
