Every site, every house has its strengths and weaknesses. The architect’s purpose is to see the essence of the home through the distraction of its present state. To help the home reveal its authentic self. In this home, the strength emanated from its original architect, Paul Kirk. Kirk was a founder of NW design: simple forms and details, regionally appropriate materials and a wash of Japanese serenity. Much of this composure was lost in ensuing decades of trendy remodels. There was a period weakness in the original design’s front elevation; the house sat as a blank wall on the street, without windows or architectural features and an entry through the carport.Save this picture!© Alex HaydenThe design team chose to enter the mindset of Paul Kirk, honoring him and the art collectors who owned the potential of this home. The solution for the walled street-side and carport was to relocate the front door and accentuate the strong horizontal in new entry windows and glass garage doors. An entry sequence for the home was then created by elevating and stepping the landscape and dramatizing the hand-crafted steel door.Save this picture!© Alex HaydenSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Lara SwimmerThe strength of the home was its east wall of glass, but this dramatic feature emptied onto a paver patio and the windows had become secondary to added interior walls. Those walls were knocked down and the house gutted to bring in the flow of natural light. The serenity of the interiors was reflected by adding Japanese gardens with their timeless elements of pine, stone and moss; inviting the same contemplation as the art within. The inside/outside connection was strengthened, making the house expansive even with its small footprint. Every element; the materials, the sculpted landscape, the light, became part of the architectural composition, supporting and becoming, art.The effect is composed. The demanding eye of a collector is met by the orchestration of design.Save this picture!© Alex HaydenSituated in the Enatai neighborhood in Bellevue, Washington, this small home was built in 1958 by Paul Kirk.

As a firm practicing sustainable architecture exclusively for a decade, we know about the aspirations of a “modern” client, where his house is a symbol of his status and prominence in society instead of being a statement for the future.Save this picture!© Anand Jaju, Jino and MidhuWhen we first met the client, he mentioned to us about his disapproval towards the traditional Kerala style home system. The traditional houses in Kerala are typically sloped roof structures with heavy overhangs. Although the roof prevented rain and the cooling was phenomenal, he was deterred by the atmosphere of darkness which stayed prevalent or was associated with the ambience inside the house. The second altercation was that many of the architectural systems that were in place promoted gender inequality in the olden days since women were restricted to the courtyard. Thus during the early days of the project, the client had made a point that the house should be a symbol of a new light, or a new outlook to our age old systems and beliefs.Save this picture!© Anand Jaju, Jino and Midhu“Chirath” which denotes a traditional lamp in Malayalam is the name given by Mr. Ramanujan Basha for his house at Pala, Kerala.

Susan AbulhawaAs results of the U.S. presidential election started coming in last week, the reaction across the country, at least on the left, was incredulity. They could not fathom that the race could be so close after four years of Donald Trump, whose administration – they all agreed – had been aberrant and evil.They are right that his overt racism, incitement to violence, and explicit misogyny have been more pronounced than that of previous U.S. presidents, who’ve tended to mask their impulses for all the above with social spit shine. It is also without question that Trump lacks minimal compassion for others.But is he really so different than his predecessors? More brutal? More racist? More egomaniacal? I do not think so.Donald Trump has been the most honest expression of the United States we’ve ever seen in a president. For those of us who’ve watched or felt the sheer barbarity of the U.S. war and surveillance industry around the world, this is clear.Of course, the horror and outrage U.S. citizens feel against the Trump administration have been justified. The separation and caging of families seeking refuge at the border under his watch, his denigration of women, his promotion of white supremacy and emboldening of racist paramilitary militias, his in-your-face nepotism, conflicts of interest, use of public office for self-enrichment, and his mismanagement of the pandemic, shady businesses, and tax avoidance are shocking to people in the U.S. and the world.But the truth is that the only thing that truly separates him from past presidents is that he turned the ethos of supremacy, racism and division inward, whereas his predecessors – in all their polish, at times eloquence, winning smiles and even tempers – unleashed them on the defenseless of the world.Tell me, how is Trump saying “Stand back and stand by” more egregious than President Bill Clinton carpet bombing Iraq’s water infrastructure to distract from his domestic sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky?Or more egregious than U.S. Ambassador to the UN Madeleine Albright declaring that 500,000 dead Iraqi children as a result of U.S. sanctions are “worth it” (presumably worth the destruction of an ancient civilization to get its oil and ensure Israeli hegemony in the region)?Or more egregious than Secretary of State Hillary Clinton quipping, “We came, we saw, he died,” about the gruesome murder of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and the utter decimation of yet another previously high-functioning Arab and African nation?Generational destruction and pain inflicted on Global SouthIt is true that Trump winning almost half of the votes points to the already well-known sentiment that Black America has been talking about for decades – that this country is racist as hell. But what does the sheer shock, incredulity and outrage of many of the “other half” who are anti-Trump say about the U.S.?It says they have never seen – or even bothered trying to see – the ongoing ineffable generational destruction and pain the U.S. has inflicted on the Global South and, in particular, Arab nations who have done nothing to the U.S., but who lie in indescribable tatters and anguish as a result of the U.S. war industry.To this half of the United States, I say: You are wrong, Trump is not an aberration. He is the truest face of this country, all of it, save for the minority who have a sense of history and global human solidarity.To this half of the U.S. now celebrating Biden’s victory, I ask: What will you do when he launches a new war? Because he will. That is the only thing U.S. presidents know to do when they need to increase their popularity.And with a country so divided now, it is almost certain Biden will take that route. He has already hinted that Iran needs to be put in its place, and as the U.S. seems to do Israel’s bidding in most things, it may well become the latest target of U.S. imperialism.This slightly edited article originally appeared in Al Jazeera on Nov. 12 as “Donald Trump is the truest face of the United States.” Susan Abulhawa is a Palestinian writer and the author of the international bestselling novel, “Mornings in Jenin” (Bloomsbury, 2010) and her most recent “Against the Loveless World” (Simon and Schuster, 2020).FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
A lot of that properly prepared work was on display Tuesday evening at the annual Taste of Elegance celebration at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. Some of the top chefs in the state competed for top honors for creatively preparing gourmet pork meals. Pork producers, industry leaders, and members of the General Assembly attended the swanky reception.

At its annual meeting in Indianapolis on Tuesday, it announced it will be using checkoff dollars to promote pork rather than pork production. Despite repeated attacks by activist groups on how pork is produced, Sarah Ford with Indiana Pork said producers have shifted their focus to promoting the product rather than the industry, “The Product Promotion and Industry Image committee decided it would be more important to just promote the product. At the end of the day, we are trying to sell pork.” She added the producers felt that consumers had a good image of the industry and for the most part trusted farmers, “Let’s focus on promoting the cuts and just let people enjoy eating pork.” Ford told HAT the Indiana Pork web site has been changed to a totally consumer-oriented site, “There are recipes there that are totally accessible and plenty of photos of well cooked pork and meal ideas.” A producer-oriented web site will be launched in 2016. SHARE Ford added the checkoff funded promotional activities are all built around showcasing pork, “We worked with the Colts this season to promote pork by a contest that had people submit pork recipes for a chance to win a year’s supply of bacon.” She said, for the next several years. checkoff dollars will be used for Pork Day at the Indiana State Fair. Later this week a group of “mommy bloggers” will gather at the Pork office for a demonstration on cuts of pork. One of the primary messages Indiana Pork wants to deliver to consumers is how to properly prepare pork, “We will be talking a lot about cooking pork to 145 degrees and getting people used to having some pink in their pork.” Indiana Pork Producers Focused on the Product Facebook Twitter

iStock(GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga.) — The northern snakehead fish, an invasive species that can breathe air and survive on land, has been found in Georgia waters, according to wildlife officials.Native to the Yangtze River basin in China, the species likely entered Georgia through unauthorized release, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. It has been reported in 14 other states in the U.S.An angler reported catching two juvenile northern snakeheads earlier this month in a pond on a private property in Gwinnett County, officials said.The long, thin fish is similar in appearance to the bowfin, with a dorsal fin that runs along the entirety of its back and a dark brown, blotchy coloring, according to the department. Snakeheads can grow up to 3 feet in length and survive in low oxygenated systems.Wildlife officials are concerned about the snakeheads impacting native species by competing for food and habitat, describing them as “bad news.”The department advised residents who believe they have caught a northern snakehead to “kill it immediately and freeze it” as well as take photos of it and report where it was caught to the Georgia Department of Natural Resource Wildlife Resources Division.It is against the law to sell, transport transfer or possess any species of snakehead fish without a valid wild animal license, according to the department.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
