The skyline of Chicago can be seen as the timeline of skyscraper history, which started in 1885 with the Home Insurance Building.The new Aqua Tower by Studio Gang is a highlight along this timeline, not just because of its height (250m tall) but also because of its sculptural condition. The design was inspired by the striated limestone outcroppings common in the Great Lakes area (see photo below). But this sinuous shape is not just a mere formal gesture, but it is also a strategy to extend the views and maximize solar shading. And by looking at the plans we see a rational structure, true to the Mies legacy in the city.

Google expands methods of online income generation from AdSense

first_imgGoogle expands methods of online income generation from AdSense As with the original AdSense programme you have some degree of customisation available to you to ensure the ads appear where you want them to on your pages and in an appropriate size.We plan to integrate this new option within UK Fundraising. We’ll probably share the results with our clients and at our training programmes, sticking within Google’s quite restrictive terms and conditions of course, which limit what you can say about the results.Many charity Web sites already use the free Google site search facility, so signing up for AdSense is an easy way of making these Web sites’ search facility generate income.In addition, Google say that the new facility “can keep visitors on your site for a longer time, since they can search from right where they are on your site, instead of having to go elsewhere.”Incidentally, don’t try to encourage people to click on the adverts by including a message such as “clicking on an advert will earn income for our charity”. Google forbids it in its terms and conditions, and recent discussions in online forums dedicated to Google AdSense show that Google does find out in many cases and has the right to terminate your participation in the programme.This is what the AdSense search box looks like. You can of course place it anywhere on your site. We have chosen to allow visitors to search UK Fundraising or the whole Web. Try it out and you’ll see we’ve customised the search results page a little already. Note that the adverts appear at the top of the page, above the actual search results. As yet, you can’t customise this page to put the adverts in a column to the right. border=’0′ ALT=’Google’> AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Web sites such as UK Fundraising that earn income from carrying Google’s targeted adverts now have another way of generating income, courtesy of Google’s new WebSearch option.UK Fundraising has been earning a regular monthly income from Google’s AdSense system since it launched in 2003. Every time a visitor clicks on one of the ads, the advertiser pays Google and Google shares a percentage of that payment with the Web site owner.Now Web sites have a further way of earning income from the Google AdSense programme. Web sites can now opt to include Google’s Websearch option to show search results with related Google adverts. Site owners can opt to let users search just their Web site or the whole Web.

Studies call for new approach to grantmaking

The winners receive funding as well as access to a team of senior business leaders through Pilotlight.Philippa Charles, director of Garfield Weston Foundation said:“Supporting the running costs of a charity is crucial if we are to avoid charities experiencing a slow decline. Charities tell us they are too afraid to ask for this sort of funding for fear of being turned down. Having supported thousands of charities over the last 60 years, we know how important it is that charities feel able to apply for this sort of funding so that they can continue to deliver great services.”A US study has also highlighted the need for charities to apply for enough money to cover all costs. The Pay-What-It-Takes Philanthropy study, conducted by The Bridgespan Group and published in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, addresses the issue of funders providing full financial support for programmes and services, but not for overhead costs, and calls for a new grantmaking approach that provides enough money for nonprofits to pay for all their operations, rather than solely programmes and services.The Bridgespan Group examined the financial records of 20 well-known, high-performing US nonprofits to determine their actual indirect costs: those not attributed to a specific programme or service.It discovered that indirect costs make up a much larger percentage of a nonprofit’s total costs than is widely understood, with different segments of the nonprofit sector having different indirect cost structures. Of the nonprofits surveyed, indirect costs made up between 21 per cent and 89 per cent of total costs, with the median indirect cost rate for all 20 nonprofits at 40 percent. This is nearly three times the 15 per cent overhead rate that most foundations provide, according to the study.The study suggests that flat rate reimbursement for indirect costs is conceptually wrong because it fails to take into account the differences by nonprofit segment, with the typical reimbursement rate of 15 per cent failing to represent the actual indirect costs it takes to run any of the nonprofits analysed.It pinpoints the need for grantmakers to realise that different types of nonprofits have different cost structures, and suggests building a framework for a new approach to philanthropic grantmaking that shifts from an emphasis on what it takes to fund a programme to what it takes to achieve impact.Some funders are already rethinking their approach, according to the study, but to make the pay-what-it-takes approach work, nonprofits need to be clear about their operational needs and how those needs relate to desired impact. The study suggests the introduction of benchmarks for indirect costs to help lay the groundwork for identifying best practices, and setting target indirect cost expenditure levels for most nonprofits, which could create a basis for a shared understanding between nonprofits and foundations of a new approach to grantmaking that accounts for nonprofits’ real cost.More can be read here: Advertisement Melanie May | 15 June 2016 | Newslast_img read more

Movement brings Delbert Africa home

first_imgDelbert Orr Africa has survived more attempts on his life than arguably any other living revolutionary. For over 50 years, the United States government has tried to kill him, beat him, break him down and silence him. And now at the dawn of a new decade, he has bested the empire once again — Delbert Africa is free.After being granted parole on Dec. 20, he was finally released from SCI Dallas on Jan. 18. He is the sixth MOVE 9 member to be released in the last year.Delbert and daughter YvonneAs a member of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panthers in the 1960s, Delbert faced dire threats from the state’s war on Black revolutionary groups. The chairperson of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, Fred Hampton, was assassinated on Dec. 4, 1969, in a sordid plot that involved the FBI, the Chicago Police Department and turncoat informants who had been placed close to Hampton’s family. After this murder-execution, the rest of the Chicago leadership — Delbert among them — had false warrants put out on them. He managed to elude the state’s agents sent to capture him and went into exile in Canada.A few years later, back on the U.S. side of the border, he was nearly killed in a car accident that left his cousin and another friend dead, but he managed to once again evade the FBI who came to question him in the hospital. Despite assurances that he could return to Chicago where the phony warrants had been dropped, Delbert did not trust the word of the criminal justice system. He set out for Philadelphia and found a place to live in Powelton Village.It was in that neighborhood where he first encountered MOVE, where he once again saw Black radicals putting revolutionary theory into practice. Before long, Delbert earned his place as one of the most important strategists of that organization alongside Coordinator John Africa.Military, police terror attack on MOVEFollowing a 56-day police blockade on the MOVE house, the police rioted on Aug. 8, 1978 — one in a long Philadelphia tradition of racist white mobs terrorizing Black communities. Under the command of arch-fascist Mayor Frank Rizzo, the militarized police gang attacked MOVE’s home on Powelton Avenue. In their reckless and sadistic fervor — the police fired tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition into a residential neighborhood — the cops shot and killed one of their own, James Ramp.What followed is one of the most cruel cases of police brutality ever caught on film. Delbert Africa assaulted by Philadelphia police, Aug. 8, 1978Cops dragged Delbert out by his dreadlocks and mercilessly assaulted him with kicks, punches and blows from metal combat helmets and rifle butts. They shattered his jaw and fractured his eye socket. In the midst of this attack, Delbert called out to Phil Africa, whom cops had begun to arrest as well, with these words: “It’s gonna be alright! We’re gonna be alright!”Just as a cop was putting his boot on Phil’s neck, he shouted back: “That’s right! Ona MOVE! Long Live John Africa!” ( Police Commissioner Joseph F. O’Neil was present at the scene. Delbert recalls hearing him call off the attack on Phil, saying, “Don’t do that here because the cameras can see us.” The entire episode was broadcast on television.Though the undeniable fact and video evidence of Delbert’s beating did lead to an investigation into police brutality, no cops were ever held responsible. This unanswered crime is one of many racist police attacks captured on video that have followed it, from the beating of Rodney King to the murder of Eric Garner. After nearly half a century, no amount of cell phone videos, surveillance camera footage or police bodycameras have changed the fact that police can publicly torture and kill Black and Brown people without facing any consequences.As police rioted throughout West Philadelphia in 1978, attacking and arresting anyone they could get their hands on, Rizzo held a frenzied press conference at City Hall. He demanded reinstatement of the death penalty so he could round up all remaining MOVE members and “throw the switch” himself. Rizzo threatened reporters with retaliation for negative coverage and said that he hoped to get revenge on them during his tenure. Three years later, President of the Philadephia Association of Black Journalists Mumia Abu-Jamal, who had been most critical of Rizzo, would be shot by police and falsely framed for murder.By Rizzo’s side was District Attorney Ed Rendell, stridently defending the city’s decision to bulldoze the MOVE house on Powelton Avenue, destroying exculpatory evidence and completely erasing the crime scene within hours of the police attack. Rendell would go on to become mayor, then Pennsylvania governor and then chairperson of the Democratic National Committee.The MOVE 9Rendell’s office framed nine MOVE members for Ramp’s death, including Phil and Delbert. Presiding Judge Edward Malmed, who admitted he hadn’t “the faintest idea” who shot Ramp, gave each of them 30- to 100-year prison sentences. Delbert Africa spent six years in “the hole,” or solitary confinement, a practice regarded as torture under the United Nations Charter. It is estimated that as many as 100,000 people may be currently held in solitary confinement across the U.S.As the years wore on, the toxic conditions and white supremacist guards took their toll on MOVE 9 members. Both Phil and Merle Africa were killed by the prison system. A shock went through the community earlier this year when Delbert went missing in a situation that closely resembled the events that culminated in both Phil and Merle’s deaths. Friends and family, even his lawyers, were unable to contact him and prison staff refused to state whether Delbert was alive or dead. Supporters learned that he had been transferred to the hospital after a medical emergency and was being held there without the ability to communicate with the outside world. The movement responded by demonstrating at the hospital and flooding the phone lines with calls demanding Delbert’s release. After two tense days, Delbert was finally able to leave the hospital and put out a statement thanking everyone for the successful effort to save his life.In the last few years, an unprecedented number of former Black Panthers and other radicals have been released. Debbie, Michael, Janet, Janine and Eddie Africa have all been released on parole since 2018, after 40 years of imprisonment.Global campaign brings Delbert homeAs Delbert Africa’s parole hearing approached in September 2019, activists around the world participated in a social media campaign where they posted photos of themselves holding signs that read: “I Support Parole for Delbert Africa.” Among those who shared solidarity selfies on Facebook was 98-year-old Rosemary Neidenberg, one of Workers World Party’s founding members.Delbert has long been regarded as one of the most important figures in the MOVE Organization, both because he served as the group’s Minister of Confrontation and Security and because of his former membership in the Black Panthers. That is to say, the system has been gunning for Delbert since the 1960s. His release is a victory against this white supremacist, capitalist system.But the struggle is far from over. Chuck Africa, the last remaining member of the MOVE 9 still behind bars, has had his hearing and is now awaiting a decision from the parole board. Mumia Abu-Jamal, another former Panther and world-renowned author and journalist, is still fighting for exoneration in the courts and against serious health issues after 38 years in notoriously toxic coal-country prisons.Indeed, the fight will not be over until the shackles are taken off of every prisoner in the U.S. The system of mass incarceration uses criminality only as a pretext to round up and lock up oppressed working-class people, overwhelmingly Black, Brown, Indigenous people in huge disproportionate numbers. Prisons do not “correct” or “rehabilitate,” nor is that their intended purpose. Prisons are concentration camps for the poor. They enable the capitalist ruling class to keep millions of workers in captivity, a labor force on retainer who get paid pennies per hour — if at all. And the bosses have managed to turn this modern-day slavery into a billion dollar industry — through contracts with finance capital, tech firms, arms manufacturers and other corporate profiteers. No person, no matter what their alleged crimes or past history, should be forced to languish in hell for the crude profits of the 1%.This is why when we say “Free Chuck! Free Mumia!” we say, “FREE ‘EM ALL!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Renewable Fuel Standard and Importance of Energy Security

first_img The Renewable Fuel Standard and Importance of Energy Security SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Energy The Renewable Fuel Standard and Importance of Energy Security Previous articleWest Coast Ports Nearing Normal ActivityNext articleUSDA to Gauge Farmland Ownership and Farm Economics Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Monday at the 2015 Energy Independence Summit, Growth Energy CEO Tom Buis participated in the “Strategies for Advancing Alternative Fuels Policies” panel. Among the issues Buis discussed was the critical role the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) plays in achieving energy independence.“The RFS has been the most successful energy policy this nation has enacted in the last forty years,” Buis noted. “It has helped reduce our dependence on foreign oil by nearly 50 percent, it is cleaner and better for our environment, it creates American jobs that cannot be outsourced, supports a robust rural economy and in 2014 it contributed more than $50 billion dollars to our GDP. Furthermore, it provides the American consumer with a choice and savings when they go and fill up at the pump.”Attendees of the Energy Independence Summit are scheduled to meet with members of Congress this week and Buis concluded by encouraging attendees to, “Educate members of Congress on how the RFS plays a critical role in achieving energy security and independence. Explain that is working, and succeeding in reaching the goals it was designed to meet. Now is the time to move forward, not backward on policies that promote renewable energy.”Source: Growth Energy By Andy Eubank – Feb 23, 2015 SHARElast_img read more

TCU won in triple overtime, 47-41. (AP Photo/Austin Gay)Remember the last time TCU was in the Alamo Bowl? Well, two years later, they’re back.The Big 12 runner-up Horned Frogs accepted an invitation Sunday to return to San Antonio to play the Alamo Bowl. Last time the Frogs were in San Antonio they matched the largest comeback ever in a bowl game, coming back from a 31-point deficit to topple Oregon. This time TCU will face the Pac-12’s second-best team, Stanford (9-4), Dec. 28 game with an 8 p.m. kickoff at the Alamodome.“We’re very excited and appreciative to be returning to San Antonio for the Valero Alamo Bowl,” Gary Patterson said in a statement. “[Valero Alamo Bowl President/CEO] Derrick Fox and his staff do a great job with hospitality. Being in San Antonio is also a positive for us in recruiting and our fans being able to make the trip.”TCU, who finished its regular season at 10-3, is coming off a 41-17 loss to Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game Saturday.“We will play an opponent that is very physical and plays the game the right way,” Patterson said. “Stanford is an outstanding football team and will be a great challenge. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to win our 11th game, sending our seniors out on a high note and building momentum for our off-season program and next year.”TCU is 5-0 versus Pac-12 opponents under Patterson. In addition to the past wins over Stanford and the 2016 Valero Alamo Bowl victory over Oregon, the Horned Frogs had a 30-21 victory over No. 24 Oregon State in the 2010 Cowboys Classic in Arlington and a 13-10 overtime win at Arizona in 2003.The Valero Alamo Bowl will mark the 33rd bowl appearance in TCU’s history. The Horned Frogs are 15-16-1 in bowl games. TCU is 11-6 in bowls with Patterson on its coaching staff and 9-6 with him as head coach. He was named head coach prior to the 2000 Mobile Alabama Bowl. Before Patterson’s arrival on campus in 1998, the Horned Frogs had just four bowl wins in their history.Stanford and potential Heisman candidate running back Bryce Love fell in the Pac-12 title game to USC Friday, 31-28.“We are so excited and so grateful to go to the Alamo Bowl,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “Excited to see Gary Patterson and [his wife] Kelsey again. Gary is one of the best coaches in America. Excited for this opportunity to play this game against a great team in a great venue. I can’t wait to get there.”The two schools are set to come to San Antonio Dec. 22,  and they will begin practicing Dec. 23.“Our mindset is to keep grinding,” Patterson said. “We are excited how our season has turned out and excited about the Alamo Bowl and facing a really, really good team in Stanford.”This will be Stanford’s first appearance at the Alamo Bowl.

LASD Homicide Assist Pasadena PD with Death Investigation, 200 Blk East Orange Grove, Pasadena

first_img Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives are continuing to assist Pasadena Police Department with their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a man in the 200 block of East Orange Grove Boulevard, Pasadena.Detectives have learned that Pasadena Police officers responded to the location regarding a 9-1-1 call. Upon their arrival at the location, the officers were confronted by a male Black adult who was carrying a large knife under his left arm, and a fire extinguisher is his right hand.The officers gave verbal commands for the male to drop both items. The male did not comply, at which time a taser was deployed, causing the male to drop the items. The male was still not cooperative with the verbal commands given by the officers, and a second taser was deployed, which seemed to have little effect on the male.Pasadena officers got into a physical struggle with the male, where he still continued to be uncooperative. The officers applied a hobble restraint around the male’s feet, in order to control his legs. The male was then taken into custody.While in custody the suspect went into distress, and stopped breathing. Pasadena officers immediately started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) until Pasadena Fire/Paramedics arrived.
