  • Electrolux beats forecast as it spruces up brand

    first_img ELECTROLUX, the world’s second-biggest home appliances maker, yesterday reported a smaller-than-expected fall in quarterly earnings and said it was confident it could reach its full-year margin goal.But the maker of appliances under brands including Frigidaire, Zanussi and AEG-Electrolux – which has carried out several rounds of cost-cutting and moved to emerging markets – said the market “continues to be volatile”.Electrolux reported third-quarter adjusted operating profit of 1.98bn Swedish Krona (£188m) compared with a forecast of 1.64bn Swedish Krona. “Strong growth in Latin America and Asia/Pacific partly offset lower sales volumes in Europe and North America,” the group said in a statement.The Stockholm-based company is trying to revamp its image and appeal to affluent Indian customers in a bid to boost profit as its more traditional markets slow down. “The market continues to be volatile, and different types of stimulus measures make the forecasting of developments difficult, not least in North America,” the company said.

The Bluff House in Baraboo, Wisconsin is a residential project completed in 2009 by Bruns Architecture. Conceptualized as a quiet woodland retreat in Wisconsin’s untamed wilderness, the Bluff House has collected a variety of design awards including a 2009 ALA Gold Design Award, a 2011 AIA Wisconsin Honor Award, and a 2010 ED+C Honorable Mention.Save this picture!Courtesy of Bruns ArchitectureRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsDoorsLibartVertical Retracting Doors – Panora ViewEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEADoorsAir-LuxPivoting DoorThis residence is sited on a gentle slope within a 30-mile bluff range in Baraboo and is accessed by a remnant logging trail through the dense woodlands. Modest in square footage and plan but spectacular in detailing, spatial quality, and material selection, the Bluff House is a series of intersecting volumes structured from two concrete walls. The first concrete wall separate the private and public entryways, which eventually converge into a communal foyer welcoming visitors and residents to the home.  This foyer opens up into the public volume of the home, containing the main living room, kitchen, and dining room. Save this picture!Courtesy of Bruns ArchitectureIn contrast to the concrete structural walls, the Bluff House employs light wall assemblies of warm, natural materials (primarily cedar paneling and reclaimed wood timbers) to complement the rich natural context of the site.  The bulk of the building in composed of roof and wall SIP panels, which efficiently complete the building envelope and reduce heat loss.   Save this picture!Courtesy of Bruns ArchitectureThis construction material, in conjunction with a hydronic radiant heat system, a heat recovery ventilation system, and low-e glazing contribute to a sustainable, high-efficiency residence.  The house is also oriented to utilize the foliage of the surrounding deciduous trees as a natural shading element in the warm summer months.Project gallerySee allShow lessFentress Global Challenge 2011: Airport of the FutureArticlesRethinking Mies: Positions on Modernity in the 21st Century SymposiumArticles Sharecenter_img “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeBruns ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidentialHousesBarabooUnited StatesPublished on September 05, 2011Cite: “Bluff House / Bruns Architecture” 05 Sep 2011.

  • On his birthday, April 24: All out to Free Mumia!

    first_imgWith a rally and a community organizing meeting planned for the anniversary of his 59th birthday, supporters of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal will kick off a campaign to “Free Mumia Now!” on April 24.Demonstrators will gather from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. outside the offices of Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams near City Hall. Later that day an organizing meeting to broaden the campaign will be held at the Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia. For information on the event, visit www.freemumia.com.Williams and his predecessors Ed Rendell, Ron Castille and Lynne Abraham have worked in concert to keep Abu-Jamal on death row despite strong evidence of his innocence in the murder of police officer Daniel Faulkner in December 1981. Since Abu-Jamal’s arrest, the Philadelphia district attorney’s office has been a key player in a broad conspiracy to kill him and now to keep him in prison for life. There is extensive evidence of police, prosecutorial and judicial misconduct in the case.Rendell and Castille successfully launched political careers based on publicity stemming from the case. Rendell became a Philadelphia mayor, head of the Democratic Party and a Pennsylvania governor. Despite several controversies surrounding his tenure, including his refusal to recuse himself when Abu-Jamal’s case came before his court for review, Castille is still a judge on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.Abu-Jamal, a former Black Panther and now a renowned revolutionary journalist and radio commentator, was an outspoken critic of Philadelphia police brutality and a supporter of the MOVE organization.Abu-Jamal should never have been arrested, much less found guilty and sentenced to death row, where he was kept in solitary confinement for nearly 30 years. International human rights advocates consider holding someone in solitary confinement for more than 15 days to be extreme torture.In December 2011, after decades of massive, worldwide demonstrations, tribunals and other actions in his support, including many in Philadelphia, Abu-Jamal was finally released from death row. He is now in general population in Pennsylvania’s SCI Mahanoy prison in Frackville, Pa., serving a sentence of life without parole.While celebrating this partial victory, his supporters contend that Abu-Jamal’s life is even more in danger than when he faced the threat of a state-sanctioned death sentence.Faulkner’s widow calls for hit on Abu-JamalOn Dec. 7, 2011, District Attorney Williams announced he would halt the state’s effort to execute Abu-Jamal after “discussing his decision with Maureen Faulkner,” widow of the slain police officer. At a press conference that day, Maureen Faulkner effectively called for Abu-Jamal to be murdered while in general population, stating, “I am heartened by the thought that he will finally be taken from the protected cloister he has been living in all these years and begin living among his own kind — the thugs and common criminals that infest our prisons.” (New York Times, Dec. 7)Faulkner went on to say, “The time before Mumia Abu-Jamal stands before his ultimate judge does not seem that far off.” Pam Africa, spokesperson for the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, responded at Temple University on March 30: “Maureen Faulkner was clearly calling for a hit on Mumia. His life is in more danger than ever.”The state’s alternative option for Abu-Jamal was a new sentencing hearing, but obviously they did not want to face the risk that a new jury might well release Abu-Jamal based on evidence that has surfaced since his 1982 trial, including photographs by independent journalist Pedro Polakoff that clearly expose the lies behind prosecutorial “evidence.”Abu-Jamal supporters are now launching a major campaign designed to free him from prison and to bring him home, alive, to his family and friends. The efforts include a soon-to-be-released petition drive and promotion of the new documentary film, “Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary,” which is already enjoying record crowds at theaters in every city where it has been shown.Against all odds, including the long-standing campaign by the Fraternal Order of Police to stop any pro-Mumia event, “Long Distance Revolutionary” will be shown in Philadelphia starting May 3 at the Ritz at the Bourse. Promoters are urging Abu-Jamal supporters to purchase their tickets now by going online to mumia-themovie.com.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • On visit to France, Aliev reminded of violence against journalists at home

    first_img News Organisation RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News A day after he began a three-day visit to France, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliev was today reminded by Reporters Without Borders that there is more violence against journalists in his country than in any other former Soviet state, with more than 50 attacks last year.“There have been repeated acts of violence against journalist in Azerbaijan since your reelection in October 2003,” the press freedom organisation said in a message to Aliev. “The most critical publications are being steadily silenced, while investigations into the murders of journalists grind to a halt, fostering a climate of impunity.”The organisation added: “You have denied independent journalists any guarantees by refusing to let the judicial authorities investigate those responsible for violence against them. Their safety is no longer assured in Azerbaijan.”More than 20 journalists were beaten by the security forces during an opposition demonstration on 9 October, a few weeks before last November’s legislative elections. The police used baseball bats on the demonstrators and two journalists were rushed unconscious to hospital.Two Azerbaijani journalists were killed last year. Elmar Husseynov, the editor of the opposition weekly Monitor, was shot dead on 2 March. He and other members of his staff had been constantly harassed by the authorities for several years. The police assumed the motive was linked to his work as a journalist but, more than a year later, they have still not found those who did it. The independent media say the authorities were behind the murder. The victim’s father also expressed the same opinion.Photojournalist Alim Kazimli of the main opposition daily Yeni Musavat died of a brain haemorrhage on 19 June 2005 as a result of a beating he received in a police station in Baku on 28 December 2004. He had warned police officers that he would write about their corrupt and illegal practices. His newspaper was closed down by the authorities at the start of 2005.Two opposition journalists, Bahaddin Khaziyev of the daily Bizim Yol and Fikret Huseynli of the daily Azadlig, have narrowly escaped murder attempts since the start of this year without an investigation being opened in either case. Abducted, beaten and left for dead, both of these journalists were subjected to extraordinary brutality. The recurrence of this type of attack suggests that criminal gangs are at work, but no one knows who they work for.
