A lovely setting on José Ignacio Lagoon overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Based on this privileged location the architectural intent pursues the projection of the interior spaces into the exterior, achieved through a fully glazed façade, which opens the house to this amazing scenery. This is emphasized by a reflection pool across the entire length of this façade, which overflows freely towards the lake, diluting the boundaries between built and nature. Save this picture!Courtesy of evelyn herreraAs a contrast to this openness a large solid concrete wall creates the necessary privacy from the high traffic route which provides access to the site. It is this wall which houses the access and also frames the ocean views through strategically located openings. Save this picture!Courtesy of evelyn herreraOnce crossed the main access a bamboo barrier prevents total display on the inside space to prepare the visitor to what is to come. It is beyond this virtual wall that the visitor is greeted by a large open space which surprises you with a spectacular view of the lagoon and its natural environment. Save this picture!1st floor planThe spatial conception of the house is based on the fluidity and integration of space. The double-height living room is the great protagonist integrating all spaces both visually and physically into the lagoon. This total integration with nature was also taken into account when choosing the finishing materials, which were brought intentionally from Indonesia.

Since the election, the corporate media have focused on the president-elect’s cabinet and senior White House staff appointments, often announced by tweets and leaks.The contention among ruling-class factions over coordinating vast government ministries is still a vicious fight, involving subterfuge, leaks, sudden scandals and personal exposés of past dirty deeds. Enormous profits hang in the balance.The individuals nominated are overwhelmingly reactionaries and billionaires. Their appointments confirm a new stage of all-out war on poor and working people. This overreach may provoke a new phase of militant class struggle from below.Departments overseeing public education, health care, housing and environmental protection are in the hands of administrators committed to their dismantlement and destruction.The appointments confirm that no section of the working class belongs to Donald Trump’s real base. His cronies are overwhelmingly corporate billionaires and hedge-fund operators, all people from his narrow, privileged strata.His cabinet will be the wealthiest in U.S. history. Preservation of their positions and personal profit will drive the administration.Despite his many campaign attacks on Goldman Sachs and on Hillary Clinton’s connections to Wall Street, Trump appointments include three present or former Goldman Sachs bankers and other billionaire investors, plus CEOs of big corporations.Each of Trump’s appointments will be dealing with government services that dispense billions of dollars in tax revenues to private corporations.Trump’s cabinet and capitalismWhat do Trump’s appointments say about the capitalist system itself?For three generations the U.S. ruling class has bought social peace at home in order to fight wars abroad. But the decay of capitalism, deindustrialization, a globalized economy and the flight of capital chasing the lowest possible wages has undermined past gains of the U.S. working class.Even before the Trump election, the United States had fallen behind every other industrialized country on measurable standards of life expectancy, infant mortality and educational levels.The drive to maximize profits is becoming more ruthless. Every social gain won through decades of class struggle in the U.S. is under attack.During the election campaign, Trump repeatedly called out Goldman Sachs for hurting the working class. He nevertheless chose the president of Goldman Sachs, Gary Cohn, to head the powerful White House National Economic Council.He named Steven Mnuchin, who worked at Goldman Sachs for 17 years, as Treasury secretary. Wilbur Ross, CEO of the investment banking company Rothschild Inc. and worth $2.5 billion, was nominated to head the Department of Commerce.A New York Times Dec. 10 headline applauded these cabinet choices as “tough-minded.”Such “tough-minded” choices include multimillionaire Betty DeVos as secretary of the Department of Education. Her goal is to undermine public education and give school vouchers to finance private and religious schools.Tom Price as secretary of Health and Human Services wants to gut the Affordable Care Act. He is co-sponsor of a bill to grant fetuses equal protection under the 14th Amendment and is for banning health coverage and all federal funding for abortion.Jeff Sessions, named as attorney general, is a Republican senator from Alabama whose focus is on ruthless immigration policies. He is a racist advocate of mass incarceration, with the excuse of fighting addictive drugs.Andrew Puzder as secretary of Labor is a fast food CEO who opposes a federal minimum-wage increase.Republican Congress member Mike Pompeo, who urged Congress to re-establish bulk collection of domestic calling records, was named director of the CIA.Trump’s military choices should be a wake-up call for those who had an illusion that Trump would have a less threatening approach than Clinton, who talked of a “no-fly zone” in Syria, expansion of NATO and encirclement of Russia and China.He named Marine Corps Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis as secretary of Defense, retired Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly as secretary of Homeland Security and retired Army Gen. Michael Flynn as his national security adviser. All of these generals are considered extreme militarists, even by Pentagon standards.Disbelief in climate change and a strong alliance with the oil and coal industries are the qualifications of Cathy McMorris Rodgers, to head the Interior Department. She supports drilling on Native American treaty lands and opening untouched federal lands.Scott Pruitt as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency calls for “freedom for American businesses” and an end to regulations.To anyone concerned with the environment, climate change and war, the expected nomination of Rex Tillerson, the CEO of ExxonMobil — “big oil” — as secretary of State is especially ominous. ExxonMobil is the most powerful force in climate change denial and has multibillion dollar investments in the Middle East, Russia, China, Venezuela and beyond.The way forwardThe fierce struggle in the ruling class that is emerging among contending corporate interests will further destabilize the political process and undercut confidence in capitalist order. The Democratic Party will make every effort to steer this into safe, controlled electoral channels.The sheer scale of the assault on the working class projected by these nominations will awaken an unprecedented resistance from the most oppressed.The role of revolutionary leadership is to help arouse a working-class resistance that fights in its own interests.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

iStock(NEW YORK) — A sweet moment between an elderly woman with dementia and a waste management employee caught on a doorbell camera is restoring our faith in humanity.In January, 88-year-old Opal Zucca was wheeling her trashcan up the driveway of her Missouri home when she tripped and fell. Zucca hit her head and had to get eight stitches. Waste management employee Billy Shelby saw it happen and stayed with Zucca in her driveway until the ambulance arrived.“I was alarmed because she’s an elderly woman and I knew she was in bad shape,” Shelby said. “I could see the fear in her eyes. I called an ambulance and I took off my jacket and put it on her because it was cold.”After the incident, Shelby wanted to make sure it would never happen again. Now, every Tuesday when he visits Zucca’s home, he makes it a point to wheel Zucca’s trashcan back up the driveway for her each time after he empties it.Zucca’s family knew that a waste management employee helped her bring her trashcan up after her fall, but her doorbell camera revealed that Shelby’s kindness went much further than just a driveway drop off.The footage showed Shelby walking up the driveway slowly arm-in-arm with Zucca while holding her trashcan. After the can was placed and Shelby went to leave, he gave Zucca a big hug.“Good to see you,” Shelby told Zucca. “And God bless you as always, darling.”Shelby took the time to speak with Zucca further even complimenting her hair. “You’re looking good. I like that hair! You’ve got it down,” Shelby said. “I’ve got to work on mine.”Shelby then gave Zucca an enthusiastic goodbye as he hopped on the truck and drove off.When Zucca’s daughter Colette Kingston discovered the footage, she said it brought tears to her eyes.“I actually got teary-eyed that a stranger would take a couple minutes out of their day to not only help her, but to build a relationship and a friendship,” Kingston said.For Zucca’s family it was unbelievably touching, but for Shelby it was just the right thing to do.“I always try to make her smile. That’s my goal,” Shelby said. “I always tell myself how do you know you’re a good person: Is it when you you’re doing good things when people are watching or when people are not watching? I did it because it’s the right thing to do.”Kingston posted the video to Facebook and had millions of views. For Shelby, the reaction the video has gotten is very humbling.“I’m not on Facebook so I didn’t understand the noise behind it,” Shelby said. “Everybody has a grandmother, so I can see why people are impacted by it.”Shelby hopes the video will help spread kindness.“If you do the right thing when no one is looking, it’s really good for the soul,” Shelby said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The University of Evansville’s Schroeder School of Business has risen from 71 to 52 (#3 among small private schools) in the Poets & Quants for Undergrads Best Undergraduate B-School rankings, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news.The rise is based on feedback from Class of 2017 graduates. The “Academic Experience” as rated by UE alumni accounts for 33% of the final ranking score, and scores in that component ranked UE 28th overall, up from 64 last year. “These high alumni rating scores are indicative of the life-transforming student experience provided by the University of Evansville and the Schroeder School,” said Ben Johnson, UE’s interim Schroeder Family Dean. “It is a testament to our faculty, staff, and administrators across campus.”According to the Poets & Quants website, UE’s scores were “buoyed by solid career outcome results… The school performed well in that category by doing something that might seem simple on the surface but is not always that easy. It got its students jobs.” 95% of the Class of 2018 who were seeking jobs were employed full-time within three months of graduation.The rankings are based on a representative survey of more than 13,000 recent graduates and school-reported data across 88 schools focusing on admissions standards, academic experience, and employment placement. Recent graduates were also asked about the ability of faculty to connect with students. The Schroeder School did well in this area, receiving an A for mentoring students and an A+ for faculty’s availability outside of the classroom.Schroeder School graduates have found employment across the country in companies such as Cisco Systems, Fiat Chrysler, Disney, and many more.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
The Eagles fans in Dallas were outnumbered, but were loud and proud. No kicker? No problem!The Eagles overcame a sloppy first half offensive performance, their failure to capitalize on turnovers and a game-ending injury to kicker Jake Elliot Sunday night to crush the arch-rival Dallas Cowboys, 37-9, in Dallas, before a national TV audience.With the win, the Eagles improved their NFL-best record to 9-1 and took a commanding four-game lead in the NFC East.Barring a total collapse, the Birds will win the division and host a playoff game. However, should they continue winning they could secure home field throughout the playoffs and a possible NFC Championship game in Philly.But earlier in the game, things didn’t look so bright. After spotting Dallas an early field goal and taking the lead on a methodical eight-play drive, the offense stalled for the rest of the half.Ocean City’s Tony Wilson Jr. and friend Parker Gimbel made the trip with Tony Wilson Sr. It was a game that they will remember for a lifetime.But the Eagles stout defense did not give up a touchdown and the teams went into halftime with the Cowboys up 9-7.Just before halftime, it was announced kicker Elliott had been injured making a touchdown-saving tackle on a kickoff return and would miss the rest of the game. Elliot’s immediate future with the team was also in doubt as he was said to have been placed in the NFL’s concussion protocol for a possible head injury.Also in the first half, quarterback Carson Wentz was briefly shaken up and entered the sideline injury tent, causing some Eagles fans despair. But he soon came out and shook off whatever problem he had.Losing Elliot seemed to cause the Eagles offense to play with purpose in the second half. Coach Doug Pederson told a reporter the team would deal with losing Elliot by going for it on fourth down and would run two-point conversions the rest of the way.Wentz and the Eagles came out firing on all cylinders in the second half, outscoring Dallas 30-0 the rest of the way and cruising to a comfortable win.A large contingent of Eagles fans were in “Big D” for the game, including Ocean City’s Tony Wilson, his son Tony and friend Parker Gimbel. Though outnumbered by tens of thousands, they made a lot of noise and delighted in the Eagles improved second half performance.Photo Credit: NBC SportsMeanwhile, the NBC cameras captured a glum Dallas owner Jerry Jones, who is feuding with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell over the six-game suspension for domestic abuse handed down against running back Ezekiel Elliott. Also in the owner’s box was New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a longtime Dallas fan, sporting a long face.In Ocean City, Eagles fans watching the game could be heard cheering through closed doors and windows and overflow crowds at Charlies, Gregory’s and the Anchorage gave a stadium-like performance by the Eagles fans watching the game at those local establishments.Is this the year the Eagles win their first-ever Super Bowl and reward their long-suffering fans? Only time will tell. But regardless of the season’s ultimate outcome, fans will point toward Sunday night’s win as one of the character-building games in their team’s resurgence.
The Impala Suites will bring a new type of lodging to the Ocean City vacation market. By DONALD WITTKOWSKIChristopher Glancey stepped out on the pool deck of what will be the first new hotel built in Ocean City in more than 20 years and admired the panoramic views that his guests will enjoy, too.“There’s the Boardwalk, there’s the roller-coaster and there’s the Ferris wheel,” he said while pointing to some of the popular Boardwalk amusements looming over the city’s skyline.After pausing for a moment, Glancey added one more very big attraction that unfolds all the way to the horizon.“You also have a view of the ocean,” he said.Glancey and his development partner Bob Morris are planning to open the Impala Suites boutique hotel in August, giving Ocean City a new lodging option for families that vacation in the resort town.“It gives them that flexibility that they need to come and enjoy their vacations,” Glancey noted.An architectural rendering gives a sneak peek of what the Impala Suites will look like when completed.After encountering some construction delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the project is back on track and heading for a grand opening next month. Glancey does not yet have a firm date, but believes it will be in mid-August.“COVID shut down the world and interrupted the supply chain. But we’re moving along now,” he said.The project is taking shape on the highly visible corner of 10th Street and Ocean Avenue, just a block from the beach and the Boardwalk’s amusements, eateries and retail shops. Hotel guests will have an easy walk to the Boardwalk attractions.Featuring a beach-themed design, the Impala Suites will position itself as a mid-market property to make the suites affordable to Ocean City’s typical family vacationers. Pricing will be announced at https://www.shorebreakresorts.com.The hotel will offer a combination of one, two or three-bedroom suites, giving families the flexibility to pick and choose the type of lodging they need, depending on the size of their group.“Right now, you either rent a hotel room or a house. Now, you’ll have a third option,” Glancey said of the modern, all-suites accommodation for vacationers.Hotel owner Christopher Glancey stands on the pool deck that will feature views of the Boardwalk and ocean from the second level.Although there will be 15 suites in the hotel, the number of bedrooms will raise the total amount of lodging to 45 rooms.The suites will include a kitchenette, dining room and living room, creating a type of home-away-from-home atmosphere that should be popular with families.Glancey said it has been more than 20 years since a new hotel was built in Ocean City. Although the words “boutique hotel” normally conjure up a certain amount of cachet and exclusively, he stressed that the rates will remain within reach of Ocean City’s family vacationers.Originally, the boutique hotel was supposed to be called the North Island Inn, but Glancey and Morris changed the name to Impala Suites to capitalize on the brand recognition of its sister property, the Impala Island Inn.“Mainly, it’s because the Impala is such an iconic name. It’s been here for so long that everyone is familiar with it,” Glancey said. “It’s got a great name and reputation. Why would I change it?”The 78-room Impala Island Inn is located across the street from the Impala Suites on Ocean Avenue. Glancey and Morris bought the Impala Island Inn motel from the former longtime owners, Anthony J. Frank and his family.When they bought the Impala, they also inherited the Franks’ plans for the all-suites boutique hotel, a project that had languished on the drawing board for years.The Impala Island Inn at the corner of 10th Street and Ocean Avenue is the sister property of the Impala Suites.Glancey said there will be a seamless transition between the Impala Suites and Impala Island Inn. For instance, guests at the Impala Suites will use the same check-in desk at the Impala Island Inn.The Impala also manages the adjacent Ebb Tide Suites and Wild Dunes Inn to offer a variety of lodging for guests within the same block of Ocean Avenue.Unlike the seasonal motels in town, the Impala Island Inn is open year-round. Glancey also plans to operate the Impala Suites year-round. During the off-season months, the plan is to offer specials to attract overnight guests who visit Ocean City for the holidays, conventions, special events and the highly popular fall and spring block parties that draw tens of thousands of people to town.Impala Suites will have three stories of hotel space built over a ground-level parking garage with 45 spaces. Hotel guests will be given one parking space for every room they rent. If they rent a full three-bedroom suite, for example, they’ll get three parking spaces.With Impala Suites opening in time for the latter part of the summer season, Glancey is eager to show off the hotel’s amenities, including a large pool deck on the second level.“The pool deck is something neat. It’s so big,” he said.While standing out on the pool deck during a photo shoot Saturday, Glancey soaked up the views of the ocean, the Boardwalk, the nearby amusements and the historic Flanders Hotel just two blocks down. He predicted that the pool deck will be immensely popular with guests.“This is the view,” he said, smiling. “It’s really something special. If you wanted a postcard of Ocean City, that’s what your view is.”A sign describes some of the amenities that the new hotel will offer.
