It said it had gained market share from rivals and said it had made a strong start to 2011, although it does expect conditions for the next 12 months to remain difficult.The group, which has more than 600 branches, said it expected the merchanting sector to continue its gradual recovery this year.Chief executive Geoff Cooper said: “There is considerable gloom in the wider economy, but we do not subscribe to the double dip theory.“We are seeing a lot of repair and maintenance work being done that was delayed and that is helping to offset some of the more difficult times that we are seeing in other bits of construction.“In public sector (work) in 2011 and 2012 and indeed in 2013 we are going to see further contraction and I think it’s the private sector that’s gradually going to come back and offset that contraction.”He forecast “very low single digit” growth in the overall UK merchanting market in 2011 along with a “mid single digit” contraction in the overall DIY market as worries over job cuts and rising inflation impact. He expects Travis Perkins to outperform both markets.Travis said all 11 businesses in its portfolio outgrew their rivals and increased profits in 2010.It said its acquisition of BSS for £558m had been a success. The move last year was its biggest acquisition since it bought Wickes for £950m in 2005.

EXCLUSIVE COLUMN: James Robson

first_imgAustralian Wallabies flanker George Smith (C) is helped off the pitch after a head clash during the third rugby Test match against the British and Irish Lions in Sydney on July 6, 2013. AFP PHOTO/William West=RESTRICTED TO EDITORIAL USE – STRICTLY NO COMMERCIAL USE= (Photo credit should read WILLIAM WEST/AFP/Getty Images) We have made massive strides and there are still lots of ways we can improve; players always need better care and we will always endeavour to improve on this issue. There are always illness patterns that grab headlines and there will always be an injury that generates public interest in the future, but serious issues like concussion and spinal injury will never go away.My view is that whether there is a link between repeated minor head trauma and CTE and other neurological issues or not, we cannot wait for the current generation of children to show the evidence. More academic people than myself have said, ‘Yes, there is’. I’m like a piggy in the middle saying that we should be cautious with player safety. There is always further to go. Promoting player welfare: James Robson believes that any debate around concussion brings issue into public domainBy Dr James RobsonThere are lots of good things happening at the moment on the issue of concussion and I do believe that rugby is taking the issue seriously.There is still disagreement on the subject, but publicity can only be a good thing and the IRB must be applaudedfor their promotion of the watchwords ‘Recognise and Remove’, used in order to promote awareness of the symptoms of concussion and the need for players showing symptoms to be removed from the pitch. The IRB are pushing the gold standard in this respect.Out of it: Smith stumbles off against the LionsIncidents in world rugby have brought concussion into the public domain, with George Smith being brought back on after being concussed during the Lions game against Australia an example that caused consternation. While there is heated debate over whether there is a direct link between long-term neurological problems and repeated concussion, the fact that there is a debate shows we are getting there.I see the likes of Chris Nowinski (who recently spoke to the RPA about his view on the link between concussion and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), Dr Simon Kemp (who says he has seen no evidence of a link between head trauma and CTE) and Dr Martin Rafferty in their roles with the RFU and IRB, and even Dr Barry O’Driscoll (who resigned from the IRB in 2012 in protest of the introduction of Pitch-Side Concussion Assessment) are all giving their views. I think all people who are talking about this issue need to be applauded. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS All of them will have different stances on concussion management, but their various disagreements bring the debate forward and in the end they all have a common goal. We are all beholden to look after player welfare.I will hold my hand up. We have all missed concussion somewhere along the line and it can be subtle. It is one of the most difficult sports medical conditions to spot and armchair experts will say, ‘Look at him, he’s concussed,’ but it is not so apparent. The biggest thing is publicising ‘Recognise and Remove’.last_img read more

Hate attacks, harassment of Asian Americans surge during COVID-19 pandemic

Photo: Eduardo Munoz/REUTERS[Episcopal News Service] When Sharon Matsushige Crandall coughed in a Los Angeles-area store a few months ago, another customer challenged her, asking “whether I had been out of the country recently. It didn’t even dawn on me, really, until afterward, what she meant by that,” Crandall said.In the racially charged COVID-19 climate, Crandall and other Americans of Asian and Pacific islands’ descent say simply coughing evokes fears of being targeted and scapegoated – and has been used as a weapon of aggression against them.“A good friend of mine who’s Chinese American was walking in his Oakland neighborhood when someone snuck up behind him and coughed on him,” the Rev. Peter Huang, Asian American missioner in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles told Episcopal News Service. “The person was angry and tried to confront him. My friend chose to just run away. He was two houses away from his home in his own neighborhood.”The Gathering was among 34 ministries funded by The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council at its October 2019 meeting. The grants were for new church starts and Mission Enterprise Zones. The Gathering’s $20,000 grant was one of 11 seed grants.Further information is available here.Huang is a team leader for The Gathering, a Diocese of Los Angeles ministry that provides space for Asian Pacific Americans to gather in storytelling and shared experience, with a focus on spirituality and social justice. In late April, The Gathering hosted a webinar to talk about what it means to be of Asian and Pacific islands’ descent in the age of COVID-19 and to raise awareness of the blame and hate directed at Asian Pacific Americans for their perceived spreading of the coronavirus. (Click here to view a recording of the webinar.)In just one month, 1,500 incidents of verbal harassment, workplace and other discrimination, and hate crimes were documented against Asian and Pacific Islander Americans, Russell Jeung told webinar participants.Jeung, chair and professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, a webinar speaker, helped launch a website, Stop Asian American Pacific Islander Hate in March 2020 to document COVID-19 associated attacks. He believes the incidents are just the tip of the iceberg.“We had reports from 45 states, of Asian Americans sharing their own personal experiences,” Jeung said. “Being coughed and spat upon is unique to this pandemic. People see us as being disease-carriers,” he said.“The hatred is virulent, palpable and disturbing, very dehumanizing. It is just a matter of time before an Asian American dies because of it.”The Rev. Fred Vergara, The Episcopal Church’s missioner for Asiamerica Ministries, said the situation is also heartbreaking because Asian Americans are on the front lines fighting the virus.“Asian Americans compose 15% of health care professionals and health care providers … saving lives and risking being exposed to the virus while working in hospitals” yet are also exposed to racial insults and violent threats because of it, Vergara told ENS.The coronavirus, a novel virus that causes the disease COVID-19, was first detected in Wuhan, China, in December. It has since spread worldwide, killing more than 257,000 people and infecting 3.7 million. President Donald Trump has repeatedly referred to the coronavirus as the “Chinese virus” in efforts to deflect blame for his administration’s handling of the outbreak. Trump’s inflammatory political rhetoric and the United States’ history of racism and discrimination against Asian Americans and Asian-born Americans have led to a rise in hate speech and hate crimes against Americans of Asian descent.“Every time a national or local politician says it’s the Chinese virus – knowing full well that there are not many people who are going to distinguish the Chinese government from all Chinese people – then thousands of people across the country have to look over their shoulders when they get out of their cars,” Brant Lee, assistant dean of diversity and social justice initiatives at the University of Akron School of Law in Ohio, told ENS.The issue is further complicated by a long history of racism against Asian Americans. With the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, the U.S. Congress passed the first restrictive immigration law at a time when Americans on the West Coast were concerned about white racial purity and blamed Asians and Asian Americans – who represented about 2% of the population – for a faltering economy and declining wages. That history continues to foster a perception that Asian Americans identify with Asian countries and not the United States, Lee said.“I am a fifth-generation American. My great-great-grandparents on my mom’s side came to the United States in the 1850s. Yet, I still take pains to pronounce my words, knowing there will always be people wondering if they will be able to understand my accent,” said Lee, 58, who is a member of Cleveland’s Trinity Cathedral and the General Convention Task Force on the Theology of Social Justice Advocacy, and serves as an antiracism trainer for the Diocese of Ohio.Racial profiling and ethnic stereotypes are insidious and create both hypervigilance and self-doubt, he said.“I’m trying to do the right thing, so I’m going to wear a mask. An Asian guy wearing a mask in Ohio – I cannot not be self-aware of that,” Lee said. “It’s not like I think about it every second, but I think about it several times. Every trip I make to get out of my car at the supermarket, I wonder, what is that person thinking?“You just can’t calculate it,” he added. “You don’t know if you’re being paranoid. You blame yourself. Then you read about something that did happen. You wonder if it’s just a few crazy people. Then you read that 42% of the people still support the president. It creates a lot of uncertainty.”For the Rev. Peggy Lo, assistant rector of St. Chrysostom’s Episcopal Church in Chicago, Illinois, the coronavirus and resultant stay-at-home orders have engendered a keen sense of vulnerability.“When I’m out, I’m really self-conscious because I know the history of reactions against Asian Americans, especially when things happen in Asian countries,” Lo, 40, told ENS.As an example, she cited a recent social media post that referred to U.S. Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a Taiwanese-born American and U.S. military veteran, as “an agent of China.”“I really feel defensive when I’m out in public and turn more inward, trying not to engage,” Lo said. “I have my hood on, my earphones, I just don’t want to leave myself open to the things I read about.”In a March 10 statement, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry called on Episcopalians to remember, “We are in this together.”“We are all part of a big family. Bigger than our biological families, bigger than our immediate families, bigger than our congregations, bigger than our dioceses, bigger than our cities, our states, our nation,” Curry said. “We are part of the human family of God. Jesus came to show us that his way of love is the way of life. It’s God’s human family.”Similarly, The Episcopal Church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations issued a statement on March 20, both calling on the federal government to aid the vulnerable of all nations and decrying political rhetoric leading to attacks on Asian Americans.“Many of our brothers and sisters of Asian-descent, including immigrants from Asia have been harassed or attacked since COVID-19 broke out. President Trump’s description of the coronavirus as a ‘foreign virus’ during his [March 11] Oval Office address only exacerbates the perception that ‘foreigners’ are responsible for the outbreak. We denounce all displays of racism and stigmatization and encourage everyone to practice welcome and inclusion,” the statement read.The Rev. Erin Betz Shank, 35, vicar of Trinity Episcopal Church, in New Castle, Pennsylvania, in the Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania told ENS that she has felt a responsibility as a church leader to call out the president’s racist remarks as well as his anti-immigration policies.Calling COVID-19 the “‘Chinese virus’ was personally very offensive,” she said. Shank was born in Seoul, South Korea, and adopted by an American family when she was 7 months old. “I’m not Chinese … but as a person of Asian descent, I just don’t think it is necessary to make that distinction.”“Leadership requires you to think carefully about the words you are using and the ramifications that your words as a leader have on other people, negatively or positively,” Shank said. “Unfortunately, we are seeing the ramifications of his words throughout the country.”During the panel, Jeung said the church’s responsibility is to resist the world’s labels and to raise awareness of their resultant hurt and damage – especially to Asian American youth – who are encouraged “to shun their Asian-ness, the way others shun us.”Dr. Joseph Lee, a psychiatrist from Redondo Beach, California, also served as a panelist during the April 24 webinar. Developing empathy, exercising compassion and building alliances are ways to address the challenges, using the core Christian tenet of “making an unjust world more just,” he said. “Theology is not just talking about personal salvation, but also about empowering the principles of a loving, justice-oriented God … in a very grounded way here and now, a kingdom-on-earth kind of way as opposed to an esoteric in heaven kind of way.”Such efforts could begin with collective advocacy to address the higher death rate from COVID-19 among African Americans and unemployment disparities among Latinos, he said.Jeung said education and advocacy are crucial, especially since “China-bashing and the state of U.S.-China relations will continue and be used as a campaign issue” in the upcoming presidential election.“The issue is, how do we distinguish between criticizing the Chinese government yet not attacking Chinese people and Asian Americans in the United States? If the Chinese government becomes the enemy, then Asians in America become the enemy – that’s the threat. As Christians, how do you flip the narrative?”Creating awareness begins by promoting a multiplicity of voices, Lee said.“People of color have an understanding of racism, not on an intellectual level but through a lived experience,” he said. “If it’s something you take seriously, you have to let people of color lead. Racial dynamics are also about power differentials. It’s a big ask, but it’s the right answer.”Jeung added that all Christians must stand up for justice. “A lot of white people hear more racist stuff about Asians than I would. That’s the occasion to stand up.”Other ways, he said, include collectively holding local and federal governments and politicians accountable for investigating hate crimes and guaranteeing the public safety and civil rights of all citizens, and voting for those who embody “the Christian values of justice, dignity and reconciliation.”Ultimately, Jeung said, each Christian must ask, “How is God using this time, and each of us, to respond well?’– The Rev.

The contextual duality of the rural-like suburbia vs. the high speed expressway and city frames the project.Save this picture!As part of the conceptual process three questions generated the initial thought: How can two houses reconcile the contextual duality of the site? How can two houses be equal yet assert their individuality at the same time? How can two houses correspond, talk, communicate and engage each other? The three questions were engaged by implementing spatial, volumetric, visual, material and textural “interlocks.”Save this picture!The houses look at the view of an old 60 feet high bamboo grove lining the creek 50 feet below and turn towards their courtyard. The double height space (living / dining areas) mediate the two.

By chance, a man took a stroll through a winding alley in the old town of Seoul. He saw an old house on a mere 66 square meter land. The Land was filled with the house, leaving a tiny garden. Though it was small, he wanted a garden so he decided to purchase the house and fix it.Save this picture!SectionWe visited the town after we got the commission to design the house. The house was so old that even a flick of a finger could collapse it, and it was the second one in a very narrow alley that no one would notice if they passed in hurry.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkAfter making a decision to fix and renovate the house, we reinforced the partition and made improvements on waterproofing, ventilation and lighting. But unexpected circumstances forced us to cease the work and made us go back to the drawing board. But a new building meant that we had to abide by the current construction law, which limited building’s build area to less than 23 square meters on each floor, and lower than 2nd storey.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkAll in all, the gross floor area was 46 square meters, and it was way too small even he had simple household. We designed a two story building with an attic within the legal limits. The most suitable structure for the condition was light weight wooden structure. Surrounded by houses mounting to a dense condition, we designed a ‘thin house’ for more light and better ventilation.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkWe used the ground floor for living room, second floor for bedroom, and the attic for Numaru (Korean balcony) and library. And we put a bookshelf and storage closet on the wall next to the stairs to put most of the tools inside.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkTo give variety to the high, narrow mass, we borrowed a cross pattern from , which is an old castle in Korea. Also, we put a long steel plate on the wall, under the round window of the attic, so that sunlight can draw its various shadows over time.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkA part of the attic was designed like ‘Numaru’ which acts as a boundary between inside and outside in Korean traditional architecture. A space that is neither inside nor outside, the owner can take a rest and enjoy the view.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkUpon the request of the owner wanting to plant some tree or flower in his small garden, we reused some of the original walls as fences, and let the gap between the wall and house become a service space for wind and become a small garden.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkA small house is built in a small land. The garden is also tiny but it was designed to include various sceneries. First of all, you can see the original wall-the fence- from the living room. And in front of the fence, there is a persimmon tree to feel the seasons and watch the orange color in autumn. Other empty spaces and gaps are the garden: we planted some shade plants like bracken and buckler fern in the shade, and also planted about 50 kinds of wild flowers in the garden in front of the entrance. We drew some paintings representing various symbols on the east side garden, where we piled up some blocks with holes and fix some bamboo in it instead of fences.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkOn the old original wall, we drew a ‘wild flower map’ with names and locations of the wild flowers; which we called weeds before we knew the names. The garden became a family of the owner, changing its color every season. The neighborhood became brighter than before.

Hongeun-dong building owner couple are people who know their lifestyle exactly and enjoy living their lives. In addition, they knew how to ask this clearly to an architect. Because of these aspects, Hongeun-dong house started with an effort contain the way the couple deal with their lives. Save this picture!© Haewook JeongThe land on Hongeun-dong hill has many difficulties for a young couple in their early 30s to establish their newlywed home. It is a place where you have to climb up a steep slope where there is no public transportation for a while. However, there is a beautiful view in front of your eyes that can compensate for the inconvenience. They have chosen the place where they can maximize the value they pursue rather than worrying about minor inconveniences in life. I think it might have been the best place for the couple who always wanted to have a country house with a panoramic view.Save this picture!1F PlanSave this picture!© Haewook JeongSave this picture!2F PlanSave this picture!© Haewook JeongSave this picture!3F PlanThere was also a clear demand in the way to organize space. The husband whose hobby is remodeling motorcycles wanted to have a large garage with various functions where he could enjoy his hobby and spend time with his friends rather than just a space for parking in the basement. They also wanted a large yard instead of things what most of people ask for such as large living room or dress room. Various detailed items were designed for the couple who live with several puppies, including a private entrance for the puppies coming after playing in the yard and a small door on the stairway connecting the first and second floors so that only the couple can use the second floor. In addition, we installed a skylight on top of the staircase room that can be open and close electronically for the couple who think of the view that the place has as one of the most important thing, so that they can utilize the rooftop more actively.Save this picture!© Haewook JeongWe just focused on creating a space that actively reflects the fun lifestyle of the owner couple. That is because the communication with the building owner was the most important reason for this house. Save this picture!SectionWorking on designing the house for this couple in Korea now, which is being called ‘heaven of apartments” was meaningful. A residential space is where we spend the most time, but if we adjust our lives in a space that has been built like a machine and not even realizing this, that would be an unfortunate thing. It was a project that was able to prove that building a luxury house by spending a lot of money is not the only way to build the house your dream, and that you can build a home for your happy life if you understand the life you want for yourself and have the will to realize it Save this picture!© Haewook JeongProject gallerySee allShow lessProject Franklinford / ModscapeSelected ProjectsStudents Build a Suspended Bamboo Pavilion With 3D Printed JointsMisc Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/885452/chico-and-chica-house-cho-and-partners Clipboard CopyAbout this officeCho and PartnersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHongeun-dongSouth KoreaPublished on December 17, 2017Cite: “Chico & Chica House / Cho and Partners” 16 Dec 2017.
