Share THE CBI today urged the government to tackle employment laws that prevent smaller businesses from creating jobs, highlighting the role they can play in compensating for public sector employment cuts. The business lobbying group said 60 per cent of small businesses cited obstructive employment laws as the biggest barrier to job creation. SME’s in the UK currently employ 13.6m people, employing a larger-than-average proportion of the private sector workforce in areas where the public sector accounts for a larger share of the regional economy. whatsapp KCS-content Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Thursday 17 March 2011 9:15 pm Reforms needed to add SME jobs Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

The house is located on a low traffic street with an ordinary residential use of a four-member family. The topography places the house between two adjoining blind walls, which divides the space into two yards: a limited front yard, which provides street access and connects with the private, landscaped backyard. A third “courtyard” is created indoors, beneath the staircase. This empty space stretches to the width and height of the house, from wall to wall and has an oversized skylight providing ample light.Save this picture!© Vlad PatruThis skylight also provides passive ventilation for the entire space through an electric controlled window.Save this picture!© Vlad PatruWith energy efficiency in mind, the house is insolated by a 15-centimeter stone wool layer (20cm for the upper terrace,) and the west facing facade (towards the backyard) is protected against the sun by a concrete console at second floor level and wooden pergola and sunshades at first level. These passive systems, which reduce energy consumption, are complemented by the solar panels and the floor radiant heat.Save this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Vlad PatruSave this picture!First Floor PlanWood plating can be found on the East facing facade (street side,) as well as indoors (hard wood flooring is raised on the walls or by MDF veneer.) This creates a warm, natural atmosphere. Following the same trend, the yards have been landscaped with various plants types, with varying blooming seasons to provide a beautiful landscape year-round.Save this picture!© Vlad PatruSave this picture!© Vlad PatruUltimately, the core principles of this project are the connection to nature (in an urban setting with limited available lot) and energy efficiency.Save this picture!© Vlad PatruProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Creative Energy of Zaha’s SketchesArticlesAnnouncing First Comprehensive Biography of Bjarke IngelsArchitecture News Share 2016 CopyAbout this officePlus Line DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBucharestRomaniaPublished on April 01, 2017Cite: “JC House / Plus Line Design” 01 Apr 2017.

Young Farmers take up Sewing at the Royal Welsh Show to Support Tŷ Hafan’s Welsh Dragon AppealVolunteers from the Wales Federation of Young Farmers Clubs (Wales YFC) are calling on visitors to the Royal Welsh Show (21-24 July) to join in and help them support Tŷ Hafan, the Children’s Hospice in Wales’ latest fundraising appeal.The Dragon Appeal, supported by the Wales YFC Youth Forum, is calling on people from all parts of Wales to help raise money for the South Wales hospice by crafting their own individual textile squares to be part of an enormous design featuring the Welsh Dragon. The finished work will comprise an impressive total of 108,000 individual fabric or knitted squares, to be sewn into blanket-sized pieces of 48 squares to form one huge blanket.When completed, the giant blanket measuring a staggering 100 metres in length and 80 metres in height, will be unveiled on the pitch of the Millennium Stadium. Filling the entire pitch, the project is expected to raise more than £100,000 for the hospice, which cares for children with life limiting illnesses.Tŷ Hafan is currently only a quarter of the way towards reaching 108,000 squares. Supported by the Wales YFC, Tŷ Hafan is now calling for help from visitors to the Show to visit Ty Hafan or the YFC’s stand to help complete the Dragon.Chairman of the Wales YFC Youth Forum, Hedydd Davies, said: “Ty Hafan is one of the Wales YFC’ nominated charities of the year. The charity provides specialist care to life-limited children and members of the Youth Forum were more that willing to take part in the appeal to raise awareness of the charity and the work that it does. We prove that anyone can join in – not just those good at crafts. Hopefully our backing will encourage visitors to the Show to get behind this truly inspirational campaign.”Volunteers and staff from the hospice will be promoting the project on the Tŷ Hafan stand at the show, and will be encouraging visitors to create the textile squares to become part of the charity’s Dragon Appeal.Project co-ordinator, Gaynor Taylor, thanked the Wales YFC Youth Forum members for their support and, said: “We’re delighted that Wales YFC are backing the Dragon Appeal. Their support shows how anyone can join in and be part of the campaign, which will make a difference to so many families we support.“School children, Wales’ top rugby players and celebrities including Dame Shirley Bassey are among just some of the notables who have already shown their support for the Appeal. The organisation’s involvement in the campaign will hopefully encourage visitors to the Royal Welsh Show to follow suit and help us raise money towards our running costs of over £2.5 million per year.”All money raised will go towards the free and vital service Tŷ Hafan provides each year to over 170 children with life limiting illnesses and their families. The hospice also continues to give bereavement support to a further 110 families whose children have sadly died.Squares can be created using any craft technique possible and people are asked to donate a minimum of £1 per square. To apply to make squares you simply fill in an application form on the Tŷ Hafan website at www.tyhafan.org.uk (or call Gaynor Taylor on 029 2067 2060 to order a hard copy application form) and you will then be sent instructions of the size and colour of your squares. Alternatively, you can visit Tŷ Hafan’s stand at the Royal Welsh Show.Ends.Notes to Editor:· Please note that Tŷ Hafan is a children’s HOSPICE and not a hospital.· Tŷ Hafan – The Children’s Hospice in Wales provides respite, palliative and end-of-life care to children who suffer from conditions which mean they will not reach adulthood.· Please note that we prefer to use the term “life limiting” with regards to the children’s conditions rather than “terminal”.· Many children’s conditions deteriorate slowly which puts an enormous strain on family life. Tŷ Hafan is dedicated to providing love, care and support for the whole family. It offers friendship; a sense of community; a sharing in the care of the very sick child; expert respite care and then support for the family into bereavement for as long as it is wanted. Tŷ Hafan believes in helping its sick children make the most of the precious time they have left.· Tŷ Hafan opened in January 1999 and was built and equipped by public donations at a cost of £3 million. This year it will cost over £2.5 million to maintain this service which is provided free to those families in Wales who need its help and support.MEDIA ENQUIRIESFor further information please contact:Catrin Millar or Helen Newton at Equinox PRTel: 02920 764 100Email: [email protected]ox-pr.co.uk / [email protected] NewtonAccount ExecutiveEquinox Public Relations LtdPRide Gold Award Winners – Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy 2007/8 Young Farmers take up Sewing at the Royal Welsh Show Tagged with: Events Howard Lake | 28 July 2008 | News 13 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Trans and Queer people of color demand a living wage and freedom from criminalization and discrimination, in the workplace and in the bathroom.Tonight, we are calling for a Special Session of the People outside of the Governor’s mansion. For Blake Brockington, for Angel Elisha Walker, for all Black and Brown trans and queer people in North Carolina who have been murdered, disappeared or incarcerated, it is our duty to speak. It is our duty to demand freedom, to demand a living wage, to demand education, to demand comprehensive health care that is accessible and free of charge.Signatories:QPOCC, The Tribe, #BlackLivesMatter North Carolina, Sister Song, Ignite NC, Southern Vision Alliance, Youth Organizing Institute, #BlackLivesMatter Gate City, Workers World Party, SONG NC, Greensboro Mural Project, GenderBenders, Fight for $15, QORDS, Trans Pride in Action, Queer Youth Circus, House daLorde, Movement to End Racism and Islamophobia (MERI-NC), SAFE Coalition NC, LGBTQ Center of Durham, Center for Family and Maternal Wellness. Trans People of Color experience rates up to four times the national unemployment rate. Black transgender people live in extreme poverty with 34 percent reporting a household income of less than $10,000 per year. This is more than twice the rate for transgender people of all races (15 percent), four times the general Black population rate (9 percent), and over eight times the general U.S. population rate (4 percent). Injustice at Every Turn: A Report of the National Discrimination Survey. National Center for Trans Equality and National GLBTQ Task Force (2011). In the 2011, Injustice at Every Turn National Report comprising of 6,450 transgender and gender non-conforming participants: 41 percent of respondence reported attempting suicide, 55 percent lost a job due to bias, 51 percent were harassed/bullied in school, or were the victims of physical assault (61 percent) or sexual assault (64 percent). www.endtransdiscrimination.orgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this This bill rolls back decades of hard-won progress and will harm our whole state. It undermines municipal democratic control, advancements in anti-discrimination policy and further prohibits wage increases. This is a direct assault on working families and particularly working women of color, who are most likely to be paid poverty wages. LGBTQ folks of color are workers, and we are worth more! On the anniversary of the passing of Blake Brockington, a Black trans teen from Charlotte, N.C., Gov. Pat McCrory and the North Carolina General Assembly moved to attack working people and create dangerous conditions for women, LGBTQ people, Black and Brown people, and any workers who experience discrimination or who struggle to make ends meet.The General Assembly and Gov. McCrory chose to criminalize trans and gender nonconforming children and youth, and to scapegoat trans women and other trans people for rape by passing NC HB 2. House Bill 2 bars city and county governments from raising their municipal minimum wage, as well as prohibiting anti-discrimination policies that account for gender identity, expression and sexual orientation.Lawmakers were given only five minutes to review the bill and it passed within a 12-hour period without a single trans person of color being allowed to speak. This bill reinforces the school-to-prison pipeline that trans and gender nonconforming students of color already face, by making their choice of toilet grounds for suspension or arrest. This bill uses trans panic and the scapegoating of trans women to derail real conversations about safety and consent. Trans and queer people are survivors of sexual assault, too. Our safety matters, and we don’t make our community safer by threatening others with the brute force of the murderous police or incarceration. If our state is truly concerned for survivors of sexual assault, it will make comprehensive consent and sex education mandatory. This law does nothing to prevent indecent exposure and sexual assault, which are already illegal, but instead prevents local governments from protecting the safety and livelihoods of queer and trans people. We honor and fight for Blake by affirming that our lives matter. Anti-transgender bias and legislation and persistent structural racism directly impact the devastating rates of suicidality, unemployment, physical and sexual violence, poverty, incarceration and homelessness experienced by transgender people of color.
After Valentia Fresco (aka Jovan Blake) was killed by Metro Enforcement security officers on April 16 in Rockford, Ill., his family has held multiple demonstrations to demand charges be brought against the security guards who shot and killed him.Keeping up the pressure on Metro Enforcement and the Winnebago County State’s Attorney, family and community supporters held another powerful protest to demand justice for Jovan on May 13. The protest, led by Blake’s mother and other family members, marched around the block of Metro Enforcement’s local office to take the message directly to the private security agency that they will not be silent or let murderers patrol their neighborhoods.The size of the protests continue to grow as more people in the community become aware of what took place on April 16 and relate that to their own experiences of mistreatment or loss of loved ones at the hands of the police and Metro Enforcement.Two days later, on May 15, a memorial was held at the site of Jovan’s murder. Family and friends spoke briefly of his life working hard to care for his children. Gathered there were also family members of other young Black and Brown men murdered by police, notably the family of Mark Anthony Barmore, whose murder by police in the daycare of a church in 2009 gained national attention. Barmore’s family stated that they will stand with Blake’s family through their time of struggle with the loss of a loved one and their fight for justice.Justice For Jovan!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
