The same panel goes into the space, creating visual unity and serving as a headboard for the bed. The bathroom was given a minimalist tactile atmosphere, dominated by shades of gray and white for the coverings, and enhanced by the black details of the faucets and hardware. The tactile effect is attributed to the flooring, that has a texture that conveys the sensation of walking on smooth pebbles.Save this picture!© Alexandre SuplicyWithin 29m², a smart layout is fundamental to optimizing space. In order to create two rooms, the bed was placed in the corner of the apartment. The joinery alongside serves as a storage chest and, goes past the bed turning into a shelf for the living room area and TV stand. The East Asian culture of the Liberdade neighborhood appears subtly throughout the project. The low height bed hints at the experience of sleeping in cozy Japanese style futons. The wood pattern in the joinery and night lamp resembles bamboo. The living area has a neutral and natural color palette and, by integrating with the balcony, provides a sunny and relaxing atmosphere.

SHARE Indiana Farm Bureau Donates to Gleaners Food Bank in Response to COVID-19 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE By Indiana Farm Bureau – Mar 30, 2020 Hoosiers are already feeling the economic strain caused by COVID-19. In response, Indiana’s largest general farm organization, Indiana Farm Bureau, has donated $5,000 to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana, Inc. to help provide food to those affected by this pandemic.Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana is the largest food bank and hunger relief charity in the state, serving one-third of the one million Hoosiers vulnerable to food insecurity in Indiana. INFB’s funds will go directly to helping Hoosiers in need at a time when food banks are seeing a significant increase in patronage due to unemployment and school closings related to COVID-19.Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana has more than doubled its distribution at its onsite pantry and is adding mobile pantries in communities across its service area. They’ve also partnered with Indianapolis Public Schools to ensure that families, who need help, receive it.“With many businesses being closed, many Hoosiers are left without a steady income to support their families,” said Randy Kron, INFB president. “While almost everyone, including the farming community, is already starting to feel the economic strain caused by this pandemic, it’s heartwarming to see people giving back to their communities. Indiana Farm Bureau is happy to be able to give a small gift to help feed our community during this tough time.”INFB members across the state are also using their time and resources to support their communities, including health care workers in need of the proper supplies to stay safe while caring for patients.“We’re hearing stories of members sewing masks and hospital gowns for health care facilities and nursing homes in their hometowns,” said Kron. “We even have farmers who are donating the protective gear, like spare masks and chemical suits, to local hospitals to provided much-needed safety right now. I’m proud, but not surprised, that Farm Bureau members are stepping up to support their neighbors, even when they’re faced with challenges themselves.”This is the second time within the last year that INFB has supported Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. Last March, INFB and all 92 county Farm Bureau together donated 50 tons of food to Gleaners and other food banks across the state in celebration of its 100th anniversary.

News Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK): Patrick Li, Director of Broadcasting or political commissar? Hong KongAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence In order to bypass journalists, Hong Kong Chief Executive launches her own talk show on public television The attack was swift and violent. On 12th of April, the Hong Kong printing warehouse of US-headquartered daily newspaper The Epoch Times was stormed by four armed and masked individuals who threatened employees and damaged the main printing press and other equipment with sledgehammers. This incident, which was recorded on security footage, is the second attack on the media outlet’s warehouse in two years, after an arson attack in 2019.“By leaving previous attacks on journalists unpunished and creating a climate of suspicion against independent media outlets, the Hong Kong authorities are encouraging such violence”, says Cédric Alviani, head of RSF East Asia bureau, who calls on Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam to “put an end to her government’s attacks, which are threatening media independence, and restore full freedom of the press as enshrined in the Basic Law she is supposed to enforce.”The Epoch Times, a media outlet close to the religious movement Falun Gong, banned and persecuted in Mainland China, is not the only media victim of violent attacks in recent years. On 1st July 2019, a group of masked men vandalized the independent Hong Kong broadcaster Citizens’ Radio. In 2015, Next Digital media group, which publishes the pro-democracy Apple Daily newspaper, was targeted by two arson attacks, one year after former Ming Pao editor Kevin Lau was severely injured during a knife attack.Hong Kong, once a bastion of press freedom, has plummeted from 18th place in 2002 to 80th place in 2020 in the RSF World Press Freedom Index.

Unemployment rates decline in June for adult men (10.2%); adult women (11.2%); teenagers (23.2%); African Americans (15.4%); and Hispanics (14.5%).The number of unemployed Americans who were temporarily laid off fell by 4.8 million in June to 10.6 million. This comes after that sector of the market fell by 2.7 million in May.However, the labor force participation rate rose by just 0.7 percentage points in June to 61.5%—1.9 percentage points below pre-pandemic levels.Odeta Kushi, First American’s Deputy Chief Economist, said the labor market’s improvement will “likely stall out” if COVID-19 is not contained.She noted housing has been one of the few sectors to experience a V-shaped recovery, however, said the course of recovery is dependent on the health of the labor market.“The wages data for the last couple of months has reflected the underlying shifts in hiring for low-wage workers. The case for housing recovery is that, even if wage growth and thereby household income moderates or falls slightly, historically low mortgage rates would continue to boost house-buying power,” she said.Realtor.com’s Chief Economist Danielle Hale said the slow reopening efforts are bringing workers back on the payroll and the market is “clearly moving in the right direction.” This direction will help consumers gain confidence in buying big-ticket items, such as homes“So far, the housing market has been resilient, as homebuyers are looking through what may be a short-term disruption and taking advantage of lower rates to buy homes, but the potential for long-lasting recovery may be needed for housing to hold its momentum into the fall,” Hale said.In May, the Bureau reported the U.S. economy lost 20.5 million jobs in April and the unemployment skyrockets from around 4% to 14.7%.CNN reported that this was the most-sudden decline on monthly job losses since data started being tracked in 1939.CNN adds the last time jobless was this severe was more than 80 years ago during the Great Depression, when the unemployment rate peaked at 24.9% in 1933, according to historical data by the BLS.

Drawn to the University by its community life and spirituality, five new rectors will join Notre Dame this year: Brogan Ryan of Keough Hall, Liz Palmer of Ryan Hall, Angie Hollar of Breen-Phillips Hall, Emily Orsini of Pasquerilla West Hall and Jo Cecilio of Cavanaugh Hall.Ryan, who will profess final vows with the Congregation of the Holy Cross and become a deacon later in August, said he was drawn to becoming a rector because of his experiences in the residence hall as an undergraduate.“When I was at Notre Dame, the residence halls were a pretty central part of my experience,” he said.As an AR in Keough last year, Ryan said he enjoyed getting to know the Keough community.“For me, community in the residence halls is really about the people that live in them and not the buildings or even the traditions” he said. “ … It’s really about the guys.”Palmer, who graduated from Saint Mary’s in 2013, has most recently served as the hall director of Holy Cross and Opus Halls at the College. Palmer said she was drawn to the mission and spirituality of the University.“It has guided my own faith and spiritual life,” she said. “I’ve specifically gotten to encounter the Sisters of the Holy Cross often and to understand my own and life and understand what mission I want to serve. I want to understand more fully the whole story, so coming here, I’m excited to get to know more about the priests and the vision they live.”Palmer is also excited Ryan Hall lives up to ADA standards and that “students who don’t have disabilities can become aware of [students’ disabilities] by living in [Ryan].”A graduate of Saint Mary’s with a background in teaching, Hollar said she was interested in talking to students about how they make decisions and what goes on in their lives.“I noticed when I was teaching that I was much more interested in being with the students on their paths to personal development than really what my curriculum allowed for,” she said.Hollar, a native of Mishawaka, said she was also interested in returning to the South Bend area after spending time away.Orsini comes to Notre Dame after getting her graduate degree from the University of Toledo. While at Toledo, Orsini worked with the Office of Student Advocacy and Support and the Office of New Student Orientation. Given her previous experience working with students, Orsini said she is excited to explore the communities Notre Dame has to offer.“I’m looking most forward to working with the students, just getting to know them and the culture of [Pasquerilla West] … and just becoming part of the [Pasquerilla West] community and the University of Notre Dame community,” she said.Cecilio is joining Cavanaugh after serving as the retreat director and Holy Cross educator at Notre Dame High School in California. She said in an email that the sleep schedule is the part of being rector that she is most nervous for, but she is excited to work with the residents of Cavanaugh.“I decided to make the move from [Los Angeles] because I really feel God is calling me to share life with the women of Cavanaugh,” she said. “ … I cannot wait to share life with these women.”Tags: Breen-Phillips Hall, Cavanaugh Hall, dorm life, dorms, Keough Hall, new rectors, Pasquerilla West, rector, Ryan Hall
Featuring a Tony-winning score by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison, the show within a show tells the story of an agoraphobic Broadway fanatic who listens to the cast album for the 1928 musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. As the recording plays, the characters magically appear in his apartment. The Drowsy Chaperone opened at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre on May 1, 2006, and ran for 674 performances. The production garnered 13 Tony nominations and won four awards, including a Best Featured Actress in a Musical win for Beth Leavel. The Broadway cast also included Sutton Foster, Danny Burstein and Jennifer Smith. Star Files “We’ve got Geoffrey Rush in it, and Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway interested, and possibly Barbra Streisand,” Schepisi told The Boston Globe. “We’ll see.” These latest rumors are just increasing our excitement about the prospect of a movie adaptation of The Drowsy Chaperone. First we heard that Tony and Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush was on board, then that Tony winner Hugh Jackman was “very interested in it,” and now director Fred Schepisi has revealed that both Les Miz Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and EGOT-er Barbra Streisand could be joining the Aussie actors.

JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — After Section IV postponed the indoor track and field season, Johnson City High School is hoping to have some type of season in place. Section IV’s statement listed the Department of Health’s limitations on large gatherings, and a lack of available indoor facilities as reasons for the postponement. “These are kids that haven’t had a sport to do since, you know the end of February beginning of March, and it’s rough on them,” he said. “We’re kind of hoping that some things will go in our favor.” “If we can break our meets down like we have in the past, where we have just five, or six or seven schools per meet, you know and just have a limited number of entries per event then that decreases the number of people in the building,” said Putman. “The initial hope was that we’d start November 30 like we normally would, have our month of preseason preparation for competition, and then once the first of the year rolled around we’d be able to compete and do our normal thing, which would have been ideal for us,” said Putman. Putman said the biggest hurdle is finding places to compete. Putman said there haven’t been discussions among schools or coaches yet, but he anticipates there is a way to make a season work. Johnson City track and field coach Eric Putman said he was planning on the indoor season beginning along with the rest of winter sports in early January. Despite the postponement, Section IV will allow individual school districts to participate on their own. “Hopefully we can come up with some sort of a schedule if possible, maybe where we do a dual meet scenario with another school, we do a limited number of events,” he said. “We do a lot of our competitions at colleges and with schools in the SUNYAC and possibly the ECAC conference canceling their sports, they’ve closed their facilities down,” he said. “Without hearing back from those schools, we’re kind of up in the air as to where we can do our competition.” Now, it’s up to each school district to map out a schedule on their own, if they choose to participate. Putman said he isn’t sure when a plan will be put in place, but the main goal is bringing competition back to athletes.
