The residential building was developed to harmonize with its surroundings, so we used curves, balconies, and gardens as a way to insert it into the landscape, softening its contours. Located on the northwest slope between Rua Zodíaco and Avenida Terra, in the Santa Lucia district, the site and its surroundings are strictly residential.

All boundaries are free from any type of construction. The building only touches them below ground. Lateral clearances are approximately 20m on the left side and 26m on the right side. The top of the building is below the Praça do sol, which guarantees that the view of the Serra do Curral is preserved.

first_imgThe writer worked at McDonald’s from 2011-2012 and 2014. Workers at McDonald’s in 15 cities across the country went on a coordinated strike May 19 to demand a livable wage. They struck in Los Angeles, Oakland and Sacramento, Calif.; Miami, Tampa and Orlando, Fla.; Chicago; Detroit and Flint, Mich.; Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo.; Houston; Milwaukee; Raleigh, N.C.; and Charleston, S.C., a day ahead of a McDonald’s shareholders meeting.Thousands of McDonald’s workers in these 15 cities left their job sites, gathered in front of their restaurants and held signs demanding better wages and working conditions. One location had someone dressed up as Ronald McDonald on the picket line with the workers. In California, multiple actions, including a march and caravan through Los Angeles, were led by workers carrying signs in Spanish and English demanding a $15 wage. These workers demand the passage of AB257, a California bill that will create a Fast Food Sector Council to better shape workplace standards of fast-food workers and give them more of a voice. Striking workers led a march down the streets of St. Louis, demanding $15 an hour wages and a union. Joining the 15-city strike announced in advance, Fayetteville, N.C., workers went out and held a march, chanting for $15 wages for all workers, not just the 5% who work in corporate-owned stores. In a public relations stunt, McDonald’s recently raised the pay for only that small percentage of its workers not employed by restaurant franchisees.The strikes were largely led by Black and Brown workers, who face not only low wages, but racism on the job. The Fight for $15 struggle has been waged by McDonald’s workers since 2012, when $15 was more of a livable wage in some areas. Although inflation and the rise of profits since then have made a $15 minimum wage obsolete, it would be a major step-up from the measly $8.65 in Florida, or the abysmal $7.25 in Texas and many other states. There is no point even asking: “Can McDonald’s afford a $15 minimum wage?” Chris Kempczinski, the CEO of McDonald’s, made $10.8 million last year, despite his taking a measly pay cut in salary, from $1.25 million to $963,500, due to declining sales in the wake of COVID-19. (cnb.cx/2T5Ltbv) Over 200,000 workers exploitedMcDonald’s, with its cheap hiring gimmicks promoting a “bright future” and attempted co-optation of the Black Lives Matter movement with its “promise” to fund Black futures, has a long history of exploitation of the 200,000+ workers it employs worldwide. Though it claims to offer excellent career opportunities, McDonald’s workers are overworked, underpaid and neglected while on the job. During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, workers at an Illinois McDonald’s had to go on strike just to get masks. (abcn.ws/3bBXs6V) Shifts are long with few to no breaks; and on top of that, when you do go on break, you have to pay to eat the food that you assemble and serve. Workers suffer injuries on the floor, and sometimes first aid is not available. They are expected to come in sick, and then there is the verbal and sometimes physical abuse hurled at workers by arrogant, angry customers. These conditions take a physical and mental toll on workers at any fast-food restaurant or restaurant of any kind. All this for $7.25 or $8.65 an hour? It is nonsense. Criminal even. It’s time to put the anti-living wage arguments to bed, once and for all. Anti-living wage advocates bellow on and on about how if McDonald’s is forced to pay a living wage, then prices will go up; profits will fall, and eventually the company will just phase out workers for robots or computers. None of these arguments are even remotely accurate. For one thing, ordering kiosks are already present in McDonald’s in states where the minimum wage is nowhere near livable. This writer lives in Florida, where the minimum wage is $8.65, and the computers to order food from are in the lobby of the McDonald’s down the street from where they live. Workers World Party Founder and late Chairperson Sam Marcy accurately wrote 40 years ago in “High Tech, Low Pay”: “In almost all of the service industries . . . there is a growing preponderance of new, low-paid workers,” while at the same time, “the individual capitalists are driven to substitute laborsaving machinery for workers because it gives them a competitive advantage.” This is more true now than when it was written, which can be said of predictions of many Marxist thinkers and revolutionaries. As to the argument that inflation is the result of wages going up, this writer first worked at a McDonald’s in Alabama where the minimum wage was then $7.25. In 2011, the price of a large Big Mac Meal in Alabama was roughly $6.50. In 2021, the price of a large Big Mac Meal in Alabama is $11.00. The minimum wage is still $7.2! So with no minimum wage increase whatsoever, the price of a Big Mac meal has jumped nearly $5. McDonald’s sales increased by almost 5% in the third quarter of 2020, during the height of the pandemic, while McDonald’s earned $5 billion in profit last year. So they would not be hampered from making profits by increasing their starting wage to $15 or even $25, which is becoming more and more a reasonable wage as the cost of living increases everywhere. But capitalists want to maximize profits by keeping wages as low as possible. (on.wsj.com/3wgTNmP)McDonald’s has much to answer for in the mistreatment, neglect and exploitation of their workers. This 15-city strike, mobilized by incredible workers, adds another question the company must answer: “Can you afford to lose us?”  Credit: Fight for $15FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgThe early 1960s were a strange time. With Rock n’ Roll taking the Blues and R&B into new stratospheres, it took a few years for the burgeoning genre to comfortably adapt into pop culture. No one knew how to market the music, and brands certainly didn’t know how to incorporate the new genre into their marketing strategies. All of this brings us to 1963 (or 1964), when The Rolling Stones were tapped to write a jingle for Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal. Thanks to footage unearthed by The Daily Mail, we can see this commercial now in all of it’s awkward glory.Original band member Brian Jones apparently wrote the jingle, with Mick Jagger including the brand’s familiar “Snap, Crackle, Pop” motto into the jingle, while also singing that the cereal is “for you and you and you” in a way that only Mick Jagger could deliver. We’re not sure if this commercial actually sold any boxes of Rice Krispies, but we’d like to think that the cereal owes everything to the Rolling Stones!See the commercial for yourself!last_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Platts:Big Rivers Electric Tuesday notified Kentucky regulators and the Henderson municipal utility that owns a 312 MW coal-fired plant that it was terminating a long-term operating agreement at end-May 2019.Big Rivers, a Henderson-based generation and transmission co-op, has operated the Station Two plant since the facility opened in 1972, Jennifer Keach, the co-op’s spokeswoman, told S&P Global Platts in an interview.“We’ve experienced losses for several years,” said Keach, adding Big Rivers has concluded the plant is “no longer capable of normal, continuous, reliable operation in an economic manner.”In a filing with the Public Service Commission, Big Rivers seeks commission approval to establish a regulatory asset to defer contract-related expenses. The Rural Utilities Service already has told Big Rivers it has no objections to such a request.Although Big Rivers and HMP&L have discussed such a possibility, the official contract termination announcement leaves the city in somewhat of a lurch. HMP&L plans to spend the next couple of months evaluating its options, Chris Heimgartner, HMP&L general manager and CEO, said in an interview. Those options include finding another operator for Station Two, purchasing wholesale power from the market or retiring the plant next spring.More: Big Rivers Says To Stop Operating Henderson, Kentucky, Coal Plant In 2019 Big Rivers Decision Could Lead to Another U.S. Coal Plant Closurelast_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享GeekWire:Starbucks has struck a first-of-its-kind clean energy deal that will generate enough power to run 3,000 of its stores by 2021. To pull it off, the coffee giant worked with green energy marketplace LevelTen Energy to purchase stakes in two solar and one wind project across North Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas.Starbucks has invested in renewable resources since 2005 and reached its goal of using 100 percent renewable electricity to power its stores in 2015. Two years ago, the company took its first step into directly investing in renewables with a 260-acre solar plant in North Carolina that creates enough electricity to power 600 stores.The LevelTen deal represents a new approach to clean energy investments. Rather than signing up as the sole purchaser of electricity, as it did in the North Carolina deal, Starbucks owns a fraction of several projects that together create a portfolio. The new model “opens the door for many new buyers to cost-effectively source smaller amounts of renewable energy,” Patrick Leonard, an energy manager for Starbucks, said in a statement.LevelTen’s platform aims to make it easier for corporate buyers to shop around for clean energy projects. For Starbucks, spreading cash across several projects reduces the overall risk by diversifying a portfolio, much like any other investment. The added peace of mind could attract more companies to directly purchase renewable energy.Earlier this week, LevelTen raised $20.5 million to fuel the growth of its platform and expand its presence in North America and Europe.More: Starbucks taps Seattle startup LevelTen in first-of-its-kind clean energy deal New Starbucks contract should expand smaller companies’ access to green energylast_img read more

first_imgApr 16, 2008 (CIDRAP News) – Seasonal influenza viruses flow out of overlapping epidemics in East and Southeast Asia, then trickle around the globe before dying off, researchers from the World Health Organization (WHO) committee that selects the viral strains for the annual flu vaccine said today.At a press conference, researchers said the findings, released ahead of print today in the Apr 18 issue of Science, could influence how experts pick the flu strains that will be included in each year’s vaccine. Derek Smith of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom told reporters that identifying the source of the viruses allows global health officials to better predict which viruses are most likely to cause the most disease over the next year.”We now know that East and Southeast Asia is where we should be paying the most attention,” he said. The findings will likely pave the way for greater collaboration on flu virus surveillance in those regions, he added.”Flu science and flu public health have to go hand and hand, because it [the influenza virus] is a very complicated pathogen,” he said.The group analyzed 13,000 samples of influenza A/H3N2 virus that were collected across six continents from 2002 to 2007 by the WHO’s Global Influenza Surveillance Network. They said they chose that influenza subtype because it is currently the major cause of flu-related illness and deaths. They compared differences in hemagglutinin (HA), a surface protein, among the different samples.In 10% of the samples, the researchers also compared the sequences of the gene that codes for HA. The two analyses enabled the researchers to identify different strains of H3N2 as they arrived at new sites over the 5-year period.The results revealed that newly emerging strains of H3N2 appeared in East and Southeast Asian countries about 6 to 9 months earlier than anywhere else. The strains generally reached Australia and New Zealand next, followed by North America and Europe. The new variants typically reached South America after an additional 6 to 9 months, the group reported.Though the findings didn’t suggest that any particular Asian country was a frequent source of the new strains, researchers reported that influenza viruses in Thailand, Malaysia, and Japan were antigenically less advanced than those in the rest of the region, implying that those countries were less likely to produce new strains.Once the strains leave East and Southeast Asia, they enter an “evolutionary graveyard,” the authors said in a press release today from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the publisher of Science. Older flu strains that leave North America, for example, aren’t likely to infect people in Asian countries again, because populations would be immune to them, and the viruses would become extinct, Colin Russell, also from the University of Cambridge, told reporters.The new findings on the travel routes of seasonal flu viruses cast doubt on other migration theories, Smith said. Some experts have suspected that the viruses migrate between the northern and southern hemispheres, come from tropical areas, or originate in China.It’s unclear why new variants appear in Asian countries first, but Russell said one contributing factor could be continually overlapping influenza epidemics in Asian countries. “It’s like runners passing a baton, and evolution is occurring in that context,” he said.Though countries East Asia aren’t very far apart, many have different climates and rainy seasons that occur at different times of the year. For example, Smith said Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur are only 700 miles apart, but their flu seasons occur at different times of the year. He also said Asian countries have intensive contact through air travel, which could also contribute to viral movement patterns.The next step is to reach back into the WHO’s surveillance database to analyze H3N2 viruses from the years before 2002 to see how robust the circulation pattern findings are, Smith said.When journalists asked if the findings had any bearing on likely circulation patterns for pandemic influenza strains, Russell said the findings apply only to seasonal flu viruses that were included in the study. “It [seasonal flu] is completely distinct,” he said.Russell CA, Jones TC, Barr IG, et al.
