Having always been a controversial issue, generation gap has widened even further today. This gap along with other cultural and social gaps have led to the belief that living in Iran is the coexistence of diverse or even contradictory lifestyles which create a heterogeneous society. This diversity in lifestyles, particularly in such cases as private versus public, conventional versus modern, masculine versus feminine, seems to be bolder, the effects of which, in approaches to architectural design throughout history, can be observed on the relationship between mass and void, hierarchy, and spatial sequencing. These differences can be viewed in the architecture of various regions in Iran – differences that normally originate in various cultural and religious ideologies alongside diverse regions in Iran.Save this picture!Concept DiagramSave this picture!Section AThis issue has manifested itself in the architecture of various geographical areas in Iran due to the fact that these areas had been influenced by their religious viewpoints and regional conditions. In the northern regions where social interactions could develop more freely, life flowed more commonly in public areas, and the semi-public spaces surrounding the rigid hearts of the houses. However, in the central regions of Iran, empty spaces would be situated inside the buildings, and to access them one had to pass through convoluted spaces. In the twofold project of Safadasht, we tried our best to realize these dissimilarities and come up with varying methods of coordination focusing on differences in lifestyles, and link them.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffThe client demanded an edifice on the first lot for his religious family who practised religious rituals in the lunar months of Moharram and Ramadan, and another one on the adjacent lot intended for late-night parties. The construction which has been built in two separate adjoining structures is comprised of two buildings connected by a bridge. The first building, made of bricks, was designed for the parents, while the second building, intended for parties, and predominantly made of glass, was mostly at the disposal of the junior member of the family. The construction was designed in such a way that if the opportunity presented itself could be separated and sold.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffThe diagram of the first building is based on a central yard with the construction surrounding it, and to accept the boundaries, brick walls and numerous windows have been employed. The diagram of the second building features a rigid core surrounded by public and semi-public spaces. Furthermore, in the party building, it has been attempted to create a fluid open space through connecting the rigid core to a suspended ceiling so as to stress the dissimilarity of these two structures. Displaying and reflecting the paradox prevalent in our daily life had been the principal challenge in this project, and the incongruity present in the structure of the project is perfectly in keeping with its contrasting applications in a way that each group with their conflicting characteristics is able to live on without disturbing the other, just as it runs through the everyday life of a single family.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffProject gallerySee allShow lessSelestranda House / bark arkitekterSelected ProjectsVanke Future Town Pavillion in Xuzhou / Continuation StudioSelected Projects Share “COPY” Houses Iran Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/885284/safadasht-dual-nextoffice Clipboard Save this picture!© Deed Studio+ 45 Share Photographs Projects Area:  1025 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Safadasht Dual / Next Office–Alireza Taghaboni Safadasht Dual / Next Office–Alireza TaghaboniSave this projectSaveSafadasht Dual / Next Office–Alireza Taghaboni ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/885284/safadasht-dual-nextoffice Clipboard Architects: NextOffice–Alireza Taghaboni Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily CopyHouses•Tehran, Iran 2016 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeNextOffice–Alireza TaghaboniOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTehranIranPublished on December 13, 2017Cite: “Safadasht Dual / Next Office–Alireza Taghaboni” 13 Dec 2017.

first_imgWorkers World managing editor John Catalinotto interviewed WW correspondent Taryn Fivek, who was in the Workers World Party contingent at the counterprotest of the Nazi/Klan march on Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12. Sent to scout ahead where people were forming up to march, my comrade Nate and I were consulting with a journalist we knew in the street. Suddenly there was a very loud noise, which I first thought was a bomb, followed by a lot of screaming. The noise turned out to be the sound of a car hitting bodies not more than 15 feet from us.After the car hit the bodies, the Klansman put the car in reverse and you could see the car was totaled from hitting the bodies at high speed. He also slammed into two cars parked along the street, waiting to go. It seemed as though the people in those cars were also in shock. I saw someone comforting an elder, a Black woman, in one of the cars, like she might be having a heart attack.I looked at the scene and tried to determine who might need help the most and ran to a woman, who later we found out was Heather Heyer, to try to keep people from moving her. I could see by the way her eyes were moving that she had suffered severe injury to her spine and head, and shouldn’t be moved.Your judgment of time in moments like these is never accurate, but it seemed to me it took a long time for the paramedics to arrive.  I don’t think there were people there who were qualified to deal with that level of trauma. Heather, who was a 32-year-old paralegal worker and a staunch anti-racist from Charlottesville, died. Others were gravely injured.The slow-moving emergency crews were just another example of what we in the anti-racist counterdemonstration were aware of: The state was out in force to protect the Klan and Nazis, not to save the anti-racist demonstrators.Cops and Klan work togetherThe left outnumbered the Klan scum and Nazis in the streets. But we were also facing 1,500 cops and National Guard who were mobilized against us, not there for our protection. And there were heavily armed militia forces, looking like they were just back from Iraq, with automatic weapons, sidearms and hunting knives. They were on the same side as the police and the state.We had to realize we’re not facing just the more extreme and unpopular figures like Jason Kessler or David Duke, and the Nazi-like characters who follow them, but we were facing the imperialist state. We need to overthrow the system. The system that incubates and helps these Klan terrorists flourish.The anti-fascist forces in Charlottesville were diverse. Various Christian groups were involved, some clergy, as well as anarchists and people from a lot of different tendencies. A huge diversity of people were there, including from the African-American community. Local people, even those who were not in the streets with us, were supportive, honking their horns at us and our banners.As far as I saw, we were the only revolutionary Marxist tendency there for the entire day. Other tendencies like the Democratic Socialists of America showed up in the afternoon, and some were in the streets near where the car struck.Given the balance of forces, the crowd of our people, the militant left forces, acted in a defensive way the entire day — at least up until the murder. The Klan and Nazis, on the other hand, knew they could act with impunity. They knew they had the state backing them up.During the day a dozen racists jumped on and beat a Black youth, Deandre Harris, with clubs and kicks, injuring him severely, without intervention from the police.Our side knew we faced the hostility not only of the Klan and Nazis but also of the state. I admire the fact that everyone in the movement acted in a defensive way, confronting the racists where necessary but not recklessly.Attack angers anti-racistsAfter the car attack, however, the idea that the left would tolerate racist speech or behavior disappeared. People were furious, lost all fear and no longer held back.A Klansman walked through the crowd, where people had blood on them, with a “Make America great again” hat on, and someone came out of nowhere and sucker-punched him. I saw Klansmen getting confederate flags torn out of their hands.People didn’t care any more. They spit in the face of the racists and that scared the Klan. They were terrified. So the racists snuck into the parking garage and slipped out of town because they knew how angry the people were.A lot of the Nazi-Klan program was shut down. I saw a video of a press conference, and what looked to be locally based white elders just shut it down. We know that decent people of all types will come out against the Klan and Nazis, but it’s important that these same good people make the connection between the Klan and the Nazis and the state that allows the racists to act with impunity.We’re angry too at the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), which appeared in court to allow these Nazis to come into the street against the wishes of the local people. So it wound up that the cops were there to protect the Klan. They watched as the racists threw rocks, maced us, threw bricks at us and finally killed Heather. It was not just a question of abstract free speech.Workers World Party participationThe WWP contingent from three different branches — New York, Baltimore and Durham, N.C. — with many friends from other areas, including nearby Roanoke, Va., numbered at times 50 or more people, and acted in a coordinated way. Our political approach could be seen in the big, colorful banner, reading, “Make racists afraid again; Smash white supremacy!”  We were vibrant, loud, unashamed.The contingent was courageous and multinational, youth and elders alike. That gave me — and I’m sure others, too — confidence and courage because of how we stuck together, had each other’s backs, made decisions after a democratic discussion and then followed the leadership.That our tactics were coordinated turned out to be a really wise approach, especially when Nate and I were sent ahead. That’s when the car struck the people. There are no guarantees, but WWP does its best to plan its tactics as best as possible and not just do spontaneous actions. The decades of experience in street action is passed between the generations of WWP comrades. We make sure to do things intentionally and consciously.Nate and I were in touch with the comrades responsible for our group. They asked us to come back to the delegation, so we left with them that night. It helped so much to be in the midst of our comrades’ solidarity.Some in the WWP delegation from Durham stayed to make sure any of the anti-racists who might have been arrested were able to make bail. We feel this solidarity with all anti-fascist fighters.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The website’s administrators think it was censored because it posts articles from the Tunisia Watch blog (http://tunisiawatch.rsfblog.org/), which is banned in Tunisia.Dubbed the “Wikipedia of citizen journalism,” Come4news currently has a total of 1,648 French-speaking reporters who contribute news reports of all kinds and are controlled by easy-going moderators. More than 16,000 articles have been posted on the site since its launch in 2006. Internet users in Tunisia represented about 5 per cent of its readership.Reporters Without Borders is also surprised by the problems Tunisian Internet users are having with their email. Messages sent to them by human rights organisations such as the International Association for Supporting Political Prisoners (AISPP), the Tunisnews website or Reporters Without Borders are illegible on arrival.Several sources said the messages can be seen in the inbox and can be opened, but often there is nothing inside and, once opened, they disappear from the inbox. “It looks like badly concealed filtering,” a specialist said.Here is a passage from a discussion between two Tunisians about their email correspondence (their online pseudonyms have been changed for their protection): “XX says (18:51):Your pc acts up from time to timec=12FF/ says (18:52): I opened the message and I found this in English: “Yesterday I ate a lovely cheesecake, but now I have a terrible stomach-ache. Are you a doctor.” It is bizarre.XX says (18:52):You mean, no attachment?c=12FF/ says (18:52): No (…) (18:57): The problem is that the message disappears afterwards. It is not normal.(…)XX says (19:21):I have just sent you a third message … Can you see what you have received?c=12FF/ says (19:21): In English: “We will meet next Sunday. Hoping you will be there. Greetings” (…) What are these messages in English that come with your emails?(19:22): and the weirdest thing of all is that your messages disappear afterwards. Without a trace.”On 22 April, Reporters Without Borders sent a press release about the plight of the Tunisian opposition weekly Al-Maoufik to one of its contacts. The message’s subject line was “TUNISIA (Press release) – double financial threat to weekly Al-Maoufik.” The sender was RSF INTERNET ([email protected]).

We call on the government to give an official explanation for the decision.”Come4news administrators were notified by their Tunisian readers that access to the collaborative site had been blocked in Tunisia. They appealed to President Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali on 17 March to reverse the decision. last_img read more

How these needs are met—or ignored—by current public policies and practices can have long-term consequences for the development and well being of this vulnerable population.With funding provided by the Foundation for Child Development Young Scholars Program, Dr. Lisseth Rojas-Flores of Fuller Theological Seminary’s School of Psychology evaluated the role detention or deportation of a parent has on the mental health of citizen children. Results from her study are in “Trauma and Psychological Distress in Latino Citizen Children Following Parental Detention and Deportation,” a peer-reviewed article recently published in the American Psychological Association’s journal Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy.Citing proposed immigration legislation currently being discussed by the newly elected Trump administration, Dr. Rojas-Flores, associate professor of marital and family therapy at Fuller Seminary, says that highlighting this topic is necessary because of the potential trauma that will be inflicted upon millions of U.S. children if mass deportation takes effect. Trauma has debilitating effects across all aspects of a child’s functioning and is a costly public health issue. President Trump recently signed an executive order calling for an expanded effort to identify and remove immigrants who are in the country illegally. According to the executive order, he intends to revive programs that will allow the federal government to work with local and state law enforcement agencies to arrest and detain unauthorized immigrants and to share information to help track and apprehend them. The Trump administration is expected to restore factory raids, carried out during the George W. Bush administration and partly through the Obama administration, in which Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers raid factories and apprehend unauthorized immigrant workers whose children are often left behind.“Nearly a third of children of immigrants in the United States—that is, about 5.5 million children—have an undocumented parent who is at risk of being detained a deported, and most of these children are U.S.-born citizens,” Dr. Rojas-Flores said. “This generation of young Americans—at constant risk of losing a parent, of having their families torn apart by immigration enforcement—are an important segment of our society and must be considered in the reformulation of immigration policies.” Detention and/or deportation of a parent often creates great challenges for children and families at home, school, and in their communities.Dr. Rojas-Flores conducted the study from 2013 to 2015 in which she researched U.S. citizen children of undocumented and legal permanent resident parents born in Mexico or Central America (e.g., Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala). Specifically, this study investigated mixed-status Latino families with U.S.-born citizen children between ages 6 and 12 living in the Southwest region of the U.S.At the outset of the study, Dr. Rojas-Flores and the co-authors note the extensive body of research that demonstrates how potentially traumatic events (PTEs) in childhood (e.g., losing a parent, experiencing forced parent-child separations, and the incarceration [by extension detention] of a parent) are important social determinants that pose serious risks for lifelong mental and medical illnesses. Increased PTEs experienced by children were related to increased vulnerability to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD has debilitating effects on child development and functioning and is a costly public health issue. Moreover, the study notes that, to the best of the researchers’ knowledge, no studies have systematically assessed PTSD symptoms and overall psychological distress among citizen children of immigrant parents with precarious legal status using extrafamilial informants (e.g., teacher, clinician, etc.) and well-established measures of child functioning (e.g., standardized and normed).The findings of the study indicate that:• Having an unauthorized parent creates a risk to children’s mental health above and beyond socioeconomic risk. Though there is a well-recognized understanding to the challenges of poverty, children whose parent is unauthorized are susceptible to mental health risks even exceeding those of impoverishment.• Citizen children of detained and deported parents experience more psychological distress (e.g., anxiety and depression symptoms) compared to peers whose parents had no involvement with immigration enforcement.• Citizen children of detained and deported parents fare much worse in terms of trauma symptoms (PTSD) compared to peers whose parents had no involvement with immigration enforcement, and peers whose parents were legal permanent residentsThe study concludes that “the current and heightened enforcement of immigration laws poses a serious public health challenge to U.S.-born children of undocumented parents. Not only is PTSD recognized as a high priority public health issue, but child PTEs, such as losing a parent, pose serious risks for lifelong mental and medical illnesses.” The study goes on to note that children experiencing more PTEs were rated by parents and teachers as exhibiting more externalized symptoms and were at greater risk of misdiagnosis (e.g., with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder or conduct issues).The researchers advocate for “a call for action to prevent forced parental separation and constant threat of potential loss of a parent due to immigration enforcement.” Furthermore, the authors recommend affordable and culturally relevant services for children of detained or deported parents and for citizen children of parents living in the shadows. “A reevaluation of immigration policies that have significant effects on access to health services is also extremely relevant to the well-being of Latino citizen children.”One such policy that could provide support for these vulnerable young citizens may come in the form of trauma-informed mental health services; a policy analogous to Assembly Bill 1644 instituted by the State of California and then-California Attorney General Kamala Harris. AB 1644 is a four-year pilot program that assists elementary schools in providing mental health services to students with high levels of childhood trauma and adversity, including abuse, neglect, and community violence. “Childhood trauma can have a devastating and lasting impact not only on our children but also on our families and our communities,” said now-Senator Harris.Dr. Rojas-Flores’s teaching, research, and scholarship are deeply informed by culture and context, and she takes a special interest in addressing the interrelationships between family, mental health, and social justice. Her primary research has focused on trauma, youth violence prevention, and the quality of parent-child relationships and overall well-being of children and parents living in low-income immigrant families in the U.S. In an international context, she is conducting collaborative research looking at the impact of community violence and trauma on adolescents, parents, and teachers living in El Salvador. Most recently, Dr. Rojas-Flores has been researching displaced communities in Colombia and the role that faith leaders play in supporting their reintegration and flourishing. As a bilingual/bicultural clinical psychologist, she also provides clinical assessments to Central American unaccompanied minors. Her work has been published in journals such as Psychological Trauma, International Perspectives of Psychology, and Anxiety, Stress, & Coping: An International Journal.To access the full article, visit here.About Fuller Theological SeminaryFuller Seminary, the largest multidenominational seminary in the world, provides professional, graduate-level education through its schools of theology, psychology, and intercultural studies.

During its 10 years of operation, HLP offered several programs driven by IndiSoft’s technology including Make Home Affordable (MMA), Hardest Hit Funds (HHF), The Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), The Emergency Home Loan Program (EHLP) and the National Mortgage Settlement (NMS).“Right now, COVID-19 forbearances are on a ‘scout’s honor’ basis,” said Sanjeev Dahiwadkar, Founder of IndiSoft. “This means borrowers are calling their servicers saying they need assistance due to the loss of income or job caused by COVID-19. In 90 days, everyone will be scrambling to comply with the requirements for receiving mortgage assistance. The Homeowner Connect is an easy-to-use platform that allows homeowners and counselors to work from home, adhering to the stay-at-home orders.” Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: industry pulse Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: DS5: How Servicers are Adapting Tech to the Crisis Next: Unemployment’s Threat to Mortgages Home / Daily Dose / The Industry Pulse: New Partnerships and Market Updates Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago industry pulse 2020-04-29 Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe The Industry Pulse: New Partnerships and Market Updateslast_img read more
