Perched on a steep hill overlooking a quiet country town in South Australia, the Angaston Pavilion is a modest family weekender. Designed to the strict principals of Murcutt-modernism – careful siting, truth to materials, and expressed sustainability – the three-bedroom house sits lightly behind a spectacular gum tree, with the structure’s body facing north, using the large foliage as protection from the western sun. With a minimalist palette tied closely to the former stone quarry at the top of the hill, the building echoes its surroundings while remaining open to the views on all sides.

All rooms include north-facing windows, and high awnings that punctuate the formal grid structure and provide natural ventilation. A garage and wine cellar fit neatly within the suspended volume of the main house, keeping the building footprint to a mere 100m2. The house is supplied with rainwater from three tanks staggered down its southern side, and the solar array and hotwatersystem considerably reduce the impact on the environment.

Extinction Rebellion, a grassroots environmental organization, called for civil disobedience protests around the world starting April 15 to spotlight the global climate crisis and demand immediate action to address it. Activists heeded the call in 33 countries, and millions of people worldwide learned from the militant protests that followed.In England, Extinction Rebellion’s plans for an April action were underway for a year. Thousands of people, worried about global weather disasters, signed up, willing to disrupt and even be arrested. Demands included that Parliament implement concrete measures by declaring a climate emergency, decrease the country’s greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2025 and establish a people’s assembly on climate and ecological justice.Protests began with a bang April 15 in London. On day one, demonstrators occupied four major sites in the city — and they blocked traffic at Marble Arch, Parliament Square, Waterloo Bridge and Oxford Circus. Encampments were set up as thousands of people from different classes occupied the sites — parents with children, young people, seniors, workers, scientists, academics and celebrities—and disobeyed the police and held their ground.Berta Cáceres, heroA bright pink boat, named the Berta Cáceres after the murdered Honduran Indigenous leader and world-renowned environmentalist, was moored April 15 at Oxford Circus in central London. Cáceres is a symbol of resistance in this movement. On April 20, after cops cut through the hull—to which people had glued themselves—hundreds of activists blocked nearby roads, surrounding police. To haul the boat away and clear out protesters, cops roughly dragged away people, including those who had chained themselves to the road.Other actions were held outside the Shell Oil building and at the House of Commons’ public gallery. People blocked the doorway of the London office of the French oil company Total. Twenty youth unfurled a banner near Heathrow Airport asking: “Are we the last generation?”On April 20, police began removing protesters who had blockaded Waterloo Bridge for five days. The next day they forcibly removed remaining protesters, including those who were locked and glued to a truck there. Cops also swept Parliament Square and aggressively grabbed occupiers.In total, 963 environmental activists were arrested in London from April 15 to 21. Criticisms mounted of police who used pepper spray on demonstrators and otherwise mistreated and intimidated them, with detainees held in cells for long periods.Other protests in response to the call by Extinction Rebellion were held across Europe and in India, Pakistan, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, Mexico, Canada and many cities in the U.S. Some were huge. In Australia, protesters climbed onto train tracks and blocked a moving coal train on the way to Brisbane. No one was hurt, but arrests took place. Demanding their governments act immediately to address the environmental crises, thousands participated in sit-ins, die-ins and blockades of banks and corporate and government buildings, among other creative activities. (Read about international actions at tinyurl.com/y28z3h5s/.)Greta Thunberg, 16-year-old climate activist, summed up the emergency at a London rally on April 21: “We are facing an existential crisis, the climate crisis and ecological crisis which have never been treated as crises before. They have been ignored for decades.” (The Guardian, April 21)These protests are a welcome development. But this movement needs to take aim at global capitalism, the main polluter and menace to the planet.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
RSF_en It has been a week since Sylvanie Kiaku, a reporter for the weekly La Percée is held in the Kinshasa prison, on a libel charge. According to the Press Freedom in Africa Observatory (OLPA), she was arrested by police attached to the Kinshasa prosecutor’s office on 10 October, and was charged with defaming a local bank, the Banque Commerciale du Congo. She is still held because she is unable to pay bail of 1,000 dollars.The reporter is charged in connection with two articles about 958 of the bank’s employees who were fired in the course of restructuring carried out from 1999 to 2001. She produced documents for an article in the weekly’s 13 September issue showing that 270 of these former employees have died without receiving any compensation.“No journalists should be imprisoned for defamation,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The authorities must immediately release Sylvanie Kiaku pending trial and must lose no time in overhauling the legislation affecting press freedom in order to guarantee the right of journalists to freely report the facts and expose abuses without fear of reprisals.”Kiaku was previously arrested on a libel charge in 2011 over an article about acts of vandalism by gangs of young sportsmen. After she spent a night in prison, the charge was eventually dropped.Journalists are often detained on defamation charges in the DRC. Tharcisse Zongia, the publisher of the satirical newspaper Le Grognon, has been held for more than a month for an article accusing the secretary-general of the sports ministry of misusing public funds earmarked for the national soccer team. Arrested on 6 September, Zongia has been given the maximum sentence for defamation, a year in prison. Serge Olivier Nkongolo, a journalist with Radio Kilimandjaro in the south-central province of Kasai, was also arrested for criminal defamation in March because of a Facebook post accusing unnamed members of the provincial government of threatening or attacking the media. He has since been released.It is under an old press law adopted during the Mobutu dictatorship in 1996 that journalists can still be jailed for up to a year for defamation. RSF recently urged the DRC to adopt a new law decriminalizing press offences and providing the media and journalists with more protection.The DRC is ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

The share of page views for online REO auctions has continued to trend higher since then, hitting a new high of 65% on March 31. “Historically, in-person foreclosure auction properties accounted for more than half of all property page views on Auction.com, but the recent change indicates buyers are shifting their focus from those in- person auctions to online auctions.,” Blomquist adds.Additionally, online REO auction properties sold so far in Q1 2020 on the Auction.com platform have seen an average of 4.2 unique bidders per property and an average of 15.5 bids per property – with both of those metrics up from the previous quarter and a year ago. In 34 of 81 metro areas analyzed in the Auction.com data, 100% of online REO auction properties sold in Q1 2020 attracted multiple bidders, including Houston, Washington, D.C., Columbus, Ohio, Orlando, and Virginia Beach.Blomquist says that “even in somewhat less competitive markets like Duluth, Kalamazoo, and Scranton, at least 60 percent of all online REO auction properties sold so far in Q1 2020 attracted multiple, competing bidders.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Auction Distressed REO May 11, 2020 2,060 Views Share Save Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago

Some 300,000 property transactions collapse every year costing vendors £2,700 on average or £400m a year, it has been revealed.These costs include conveyancing fees, local search costs and subsequent lower offers on a property.The shocking figures come from research by YouGov which also reveals that 20% of sellers experience a sale collapse, 12% incur costs of more than £5,000 and that six percent of all sales breakdowns are down to agents not being able to find a buyer.But the vast majority – two thirds – of the deals that collapse are down to buyers pulling out because they find a better property or can’t get a mortgage before going to exchange of contracts. And 8% of failed sales were down to gazundering, YouGov says.Seller confidenceAnd while these problems may be regular fayre for agents’ sales progression departments, it is also taking its toll on the selling confidence in the market.YouGov says a third of home owners are put off selling their home because they’re unwilling to face the horrors of a property chain breaking down.Contained within the Annual Homeower Survey that the polling organisation carries out on behalf of the HomeOwners Alliance, the research also reveals that property transactions require six viewings on average to achieve a sale.“The home selling system is so unreliable it’s deterring homeowners from selling – adding to the ongoing housing shortage crisis as a lack of suitable homes is one of the barriers to people moving up the property ladder,” says Paula Higgins, Chief Executive of the HomeOwners Alliance (pictured).“Buyers need to have a little more skin in the game too. An earlier commitment – for example through reservation agreements – would go some way to avoiding these situations.”HomeOwners Alliance gazundering yougov May 14, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Students at St Catherine’s were issued a warning last week after excessive drinking led to multiple emergency taxis being called and one hosptalisation.A number of Catz students were transported back to the College via taxi during Freshers’ Week last week, after becoming too inebriated. One fresher was hospitalised on Thursday night and had to be accompanied by a JCR committee member.Following these events, the Dean of St Catherine’s, Dr Richard Bailey, sent an email to the JCR on Friday afternoon, in which he informed the students that if this “excessive drunken behaviour” were to continue, ‘Entzs’ (the St Catherine’s word for ‘bop’) could be cancelled indefinitely. Bailey said in his email, “I am writing to you following an unusually disappointing beginning to the term. There has been a worrying amount of excessive drunken behaviour, particularly amongst the 1st yrs, and several disruptive staircase parties. I will be following up personally with a number of you.”“As you know, there is an Entz this weekend. The Junior Deans will be present, as at all such events, and will be reporting back to me.“Having Entz in College is contingent on good behaviour so be in no doubt that subsequent Entzs will be cancelled if this poor behaviour continues.”Meanwhile, there was confusion as to the lack of presence of a Catz Junior Dean to accompany the hospitalised individual. Cherwell understands that this responsibility would not usually fall to a committee member, and instead that the first aid-trained Junior Deans are expected to look after excessively drunk undergraduates. The College declined to comment on the presence of Junior Deans.One third-year Catz historian told Cherwell, “To an extent I think the freshers have just got a bit carried away and that the excitement of the week got to a few of them. It’s not exactly unusual to have some people who drink too much. What is unusual is the Dean’s reaction. Catz is a very chilled place and it takes a lot to provoke a reaction like this.“If they did cancel Entz, the freshers definitely wouldn’t be doing themselves any favours with ingratiating themselves with the older years.”Dr Richard Bailey declined to address the specific issues but stated, “As ever, we’re keen to maintain a safe, enjoyable and stimulating environment in College.” St Catherine’s JCR President, Sarah White, also declined to comment.The week’s events follow a decision at Lincoln College to ban spirits from all Entz-run freshers’ events, which could be extended to encompass the rest of the academic year.
