In Korea, in the late ’70s and early ’80s, boombox was a familiar sounding device that played radio and cassette tapes. When my school went on a picnic, some students brought a boombox, and we all shared loud music coming out of its speaker with classmates. Boombox reminds me of memories of cassette tapes with loose film in it and stimulates nostalgia at that time. They consumed popular culture in the midst of a rapid economic development in their teenage years, and received the same level of education as their contemporaries from other advanced countries. Now they became the main generation of the society that have family and raise children. Boombox House is a rental house project that targets this specific generation.Save this picture!© Shin KyungsubThe location is a detached residential area of Chungmugong-dong, Jinju City. Chungmugong-dong is an innovative city newly created by the relocation of LH (Korea Land and Housing Corporation). In this area, which is actively equipped with urban infrastructures until now, apartment houses rapidly came in first, and single houses are also coming in one by one. The site is a typical single residence in any planned city, but it is located at the corner of the road, so it has a fan shape, not a rectangular shape. So, we started to use this original differentiation of the land as a design element to emphasize its form.Save this picture!© Shin KyungsubIt is a rental house that presupposes popularity and universality, but it is necessary to have the speciality that is appropriate for the target which shares the sensitivity of a certain generation. Attempts to escape the familiarity of the original without a great deviation were also an interesting task given to the architect. The planned duplex house was an inevitable choice to increase the profitability of the building owner while at the same time being a  safeguard to ease the awkwardness of a detached house to a generation familiar with the apartment. And, A and B houses were designed not in a simple symmetry but in different ways, so that residents could choose a space that suits their individuality and preference.Save this picture!Section”A” house has a courtyard and a living room on the first floor. The interior wall of the living room has a look with exterior brick finish extended to the room. It is different from the general method of stacking bricks by stacking bricks every other layer with twist looking, omitting vertical construction joints. Opening the living room window leads to the courtyard where there is a open area in which indoor is extended to outdoor. This place was occupied by a couple in their mid-30s with a 4-year- old child. House B has a living room with exposed concrete walls on the second floor, and a staircase that goes up to the third floor extends to the rooftop courtyard. In the private roof-top yard, various activities are available to suit the resident’s preferences. This place was also occupied by a late 30s couple with two children  aged 7 and 5 years old. A house has a ground floor facing the ground, and house B has a rooftop garden facing the sky. I imagine, someday, the two neighbors will be sharing their own yards each other. This part of the design was intentionally planned, so it is an ideal figure that can be fully predicted.Save this picture!© Shin KyungsubSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shin KyungsubSave this picture!Second Floor PlanBoombox House is located in a new city that has not been completely filled and waiting to be connected and communicate with neighbors. The main mass of the building with the highlighted front round gives the effect that it looks bigger than the actual scale. To give  lightness to this appearance, we twisted the mass that opens up and down and brought it out. Although bricks are used as exterior materials, there is no monotony in the conventional way, and it is in a hetero typical form, but it is not showy. I hope that the boom box house where comfort and color difference are confronted will be a new but familiar house in the innovative city of Jinju. 2017 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/871672/boombox-house-2m2-architects Clipboard Boombox House / 2m2 architects Photographs Area:  256 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Shin Kyungsub Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Project gallerySee allShow lessUrban SOS: Hour CityStudent Competitions1000 Buildings X 1000 MunicipalitiesIdeas Share Architects: 2m2 architects Area Area of this architecture project Houses CopyHouses•Jinju-si, South Korea CopyAbout this office2m2 architectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJinju-siSouth KoreaPublished on May 22, 2017Cite: “Boombox House / 2m2 architects” 22 May 2017.

Saint Martin’s Faculty Member Travels to Finland, Studies Roots of NW…

first_imgSubmitted by Saint Martin’s UniversitySt, Martin’s assistant professor Aaron Goings traveled on a Fulbright Scholarship to Finland.Aaron Goings, Ph.D., an assistant professor of history at Saint Martin’s and a specialist in labor history, will spend the 2014-15 academic year in Finland as a Fulbright Scholar. He will teach and conduct research while he is based at the department of history and ethnology at the University of Jyvaskyla.The Fulbright Program is the premier international educational exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. It is designed to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and those of other countries.Participants for the program, which operates in more than 155 countries worldwide, are chosen for their academic merit and leadership potential.As part of Goings’ studies, he will continue to research Finnish immigrants who settled in the lumber regions of Southwest Washington, Northwest Oregon and along Puget Sound. He plans to concentrate on immigrants of the 1920s and ’30s who were involved in the Industrial Workers of the World (I.W.W.), commonly known as “Wobblies.”“Finnish Americans were the largest group in several radical movements during the first half of the 20th Century, yet few historians have placed Finns at the center of the history of these movements,” he says.“My year in Finland will allow me to devote considerable time to study the working lives and labor struggles of Finnish American unionists and radicals, particularly those men and women who settled in Western Washington.Goings, who graduated with a degree in political science from Saint Martin’s, earned his master’s degree in history in 2005 from Central Washington University. He completed his doctorate in history in 2011 at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia.His interest in labor unions goes back to his roots in his hometown of Aberdeen, Wash; his scholarly study of unions, dates to his undergraduate years at Saint Martin’s, where he became the first recipient of the University’s Father Jerome Toner, O.S.B., Award for outstanding contributions to the theory and practice of social justice and labor issues.Along with fellow labor historian Gary Kaunonen, Goings is co-author of the book, “Community in Conflict: A Working-Class History of the 1913-14 Michigan Copper Strike and the Italian Hall Tragedy,” published in 2013 by Michigan State University Press. They received a State History Award from the Historical Society of Michigan for their scholarly work on the project.At Saint Martin’s, Goings teaches courses on labor studies, as well as U.S., women’s, world and Latin American history survey courses. This past spring, he team-taught a course entitled “Working Class Literature.”  He also is director of the University’s Pacific Northwest Social Action Speaker Series that works to raise awareness of the area’s rich history, especially that of its social justice movements.

Election 2017: Five Compete for Two Open Highlands Seats

first_imgGreg WellsAge: 42Qualifications: Member of Highlands Open Space and Recreation Committees; former member of Highlands Land Use BoardProfession: Product Leader for Nielsen Holdings PLCCampaign Slogan: New Perspective, Fresh Ideas, Real ActionFor Greg Wells, his platform is influenced by the words of a mentor – crumbs make cake. Every little thing in town matters to the whole big picture.“It doesn’t seem like we’re really executing right now,” Wells said, adding he wants “to see if we can actually get some stuff done down here.”Wells, who lives close to the Seastreak ferry terminal, sees the dearth of parking as a real detriment to the residents in that section. He said investigating a solution is paramount.“There were times when we thought Seastreak was going to go out of business,” said Wells. “Now that they’re so popular, we have a real parking problem. It’s something that affects all of the people who live down there.”Regarding downtown flooding, Wells said executing on previously engineered projects is important. Wells also said he wants to create an “engineering project manager” position in Highlands. That person would report to the borough administrator and would be the point-of-contact for any and all infrastructure improvement projects.“Get a full-time position in town to execute on these large-scale engineering projects,” he said.  “Everybody needs to agree there’s too many cooks in the kitchen.”Wells also had a number of ideas to benefit taxpayers, including executing on shared service agreements with neighboring towns, and improving upon the unique nautical recreation opportunities.Regarding Shadow Lawn, Wells said his view might be more unique. He is for redeveloping the property, but doesn’t “want to write the developer a blank check.”He wants to rely on resident surveys done between 2015 and 2016, where over half of Highlands residents said they were comfortable with the property’s current zoning of mid- to high-rise.“I am for development up there,” Wells said, “but responsibly and with input from the community.”John CobergAge: 65Qualifications: Highlands Department of Public Works employee of 25 years; former captain of Highlands First Aid Squad.Profession: RetiredCampaign Slogan: NoneLife-long resident John Coberg, a U.S. Army Vietnam veteran who worked in Highlands for over two decades, said Highlands has struggled to come back after Sandy hit in October 2012.“I look at what they (Highlands borough council) have done since Sandy ended, and I’ve seen everything concentrated on the main street,” he said. “But if you turn down any one of those side streets, it’s terrible.”Coberg was critical of the post-Sandy rebuild, citing communities like Sea Bright and Union Beach which have rebuilt in a timelier fashion.“We’re only a little town, and all that got done was Bay Avenue?” Coberg questioned.Coberg said, if elected, he would push to get away from the “fighting with one another” he sees happening on the current borough council, and look to open up lines of communication.Among his different platforms, Coberg said he wants to implement parking meters along Shore Drive for Seastreak commuters who park on the street; not redevelop Shadow Lawn Trailer Park into multi-level housing; and focus on finding state and federal grants to help Highlands.He is pushing for major beach replenishment from Sandy Hook Bay Marina down to Miller Beach, so residents can benefit in more than one way.“That’s going to keep the water away and keep the heritage of this town,” he said.This article was first published in the Oct. 19-26, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. By Jay Cook |HIGHLANDS – With the five-year anniversary of Super Storm Sandy around the corner, each candidate running in this year’s election said it’s time for Highlands to step forward in the post-Sandy rebuild. Opening lines of communication between the borough and its residents was also brought up by each candidate. Highlands operates a non-partisan government and has two open seats this year as council members Doug Card and Rebecca Kane-Wells are not seeking re-election. The two open seats on the Borough Council come with a full, three-year term. All five candidates have been invited to attend a debate night on Friday, Oct. 20, at 8 p.m. at the Robert D. Wilson Community Center, 22 Snug Harbor Ave. It will be moderated by former Highlands resident Muriel J. Smith.Frank NolanAge: 47Qualifications: Highlands Councilman from 2006 to 2009; Highlands Mayor from 2010 to 2016; member of Highlands Land Use BoardProfession: Real Estate Agent with Burke & Manna, Sea Bright; Title Agent with Two Rivers Title, Little SilverCampaign Slogan: Leadership, Experience, and Integrity Mean SomethingNolan, the only resident running in this election with elected political office experience, said it’s the clear-cut reason why he should return to the council.“Yes, that means I have a record you can pick at,” Nolan said, “but also I’m not going to need on-the-job training.”The former mayor didn’t seek re-election to respect term limits. He said it gave him the opportunity to step back and refocus on his positions.Nolan said, if elected, he’ll focus on funding the school system, infrastructure, and the police department. Those three entities are the pillars of the Highlands community, he said.One of this election’s hot topics – infrastructure – was discussed heavily this summer when fecal matter was draining into the stormwater sewer system. It was polluting Highlands’ two public beaches.Nolan said during his time on the borough council, pre-Hurricane Irene, the council approved a bond for an infrastructure reconstruction project. It entailed installing a pump station on Snug Harbor Avenue, as well as creating more floodline piping through town. He said it is ready to go, and would advocate for starting that project.Nolan also said he’s a parent to a child currently in the Highlands school system. He said that alone means he has an investment in what the school system is doing, and how much funding it could need.“You also want to make sure you have a good product,” he said. “The kids who we’re sending there are our future leaders.”Talk about having Sea Bright students leave Shore Regional and attend Henry Hudson Regional have resurfaced, Nolan said, and he would be receptive to that plan “if it doesn’t water down the product.”“If we have the capacity, I’m all for it,” he said.Ken Braswell Age: 58Qualifications: Member of Highlands Land Use Board; Former chair, vice chair, member of Highlands/Atlantic Highlands Sewer AuthorityProfession: Owner of ShoreGrafx, HighlandsCampaign Slogan: Levelheaded LeadershipBraswell, running for office the first time with running mate Rosemary Ryan, said improving the underground infrastructure would be his top priority if elected.The Army Corps of Engineers presented a plan to Highlands in April which called for building a flood wall along much of the borough’s bayshore frontage to protect from Sandy-caliber storms. Braswell said he was against the plan because homeowners would still need flood insurance and basic roadway flooding wouldn’t cease.As a small business owner with an office on Bay Avenue, he said the perpetual fear of flooding is a real concern.“It’s been overlooked way too long in Highlands, and it’s going to catch up to us,” Braswell said. “It has already in some respects.”With experience on the expired Highlands/Atlantic Highlands Sewer Authority, Braswell believes he can open talks with neighboring towns and the state to reduce the amount of stormwater draining downhill along Route 36.“We just can’t handle it anymore,” he said, bluntly. “We can’t attract new businesses.”It’s a Catch-22, Braswell continued, as the borough will have to pay to fix flooding issues and, until it happens, tax revenue from new businesses will be dormant. He said finding that balance is key.Fixing the flooding is “just the willpower to go through and find a way to do it without impacting our taxes a great deal,” he said.His wife, Carla Cefalo Braswell, is president of the Highlands Business Partnership. Braswell wants to strengthen the relationship between local businesses and the governing body.Rosemary RyanAge: 49Qualifications: Member of Highlands Land Use Board; member of Highlands Business Partnership; former president of Henry Hudson Regional Board of EducationProfession: Paralegal with Law Office of Toby Grabelle, ShrewsburyCampaign Slogan: Levelheaded LeadershipAlso running in her first political election, Ryan said her presence on the council with Braswell will allow for an efficient government, where more can be done than what is currently happening.“In the past, there seemed to be some friction on the board, which has hindered progress,” she said, adding “I can be aggressive, but I’m very pleasant to deal with.”Branching out from Braswell’s position on downtown flooding, Ryan said she plans to spotlight residential code enforcement. Simple things like property maintenance and ensuring homes are safe and attractive to the eye are important. It goes a long way if everyone is responsible for their properties, she said.“Yes, we want to keep this nice, small town atmosphere,” Ryan said. “But we need improvements.”Ryan and Braswell said they were on a Land Use Board subcommittee which selected a planner to investigate if Shadow Lawn Trailer Park could be deemed an “area in need of redevelopment.” The 14-acre site has nearly 100 residents leasing trailers, and is the last major developable piece of land in Highlands.Ryan said she wouldn’t want to see an equivalent to the neighboring EastPointe high-rise development, but said redevelopment could benefit Highlands sooner if shorter tax abatements are provided.“We would love to see more residents up there,” Ryan said. “I just don’t know how many units.”With experience on the local Board of Education, Ryan said bringing Sea Bright students to Henry Hudson would be a priority of hers. The high school is “a private school setting in a public school environment,” she said.Ryan said conversations over recent years have made the school district change for Sea Bright students a reality. Those students would travel less and be closer to home.“It’s something that I’ve supported from the beginning,” she added.last_img read more

Sanlam takes authors on a journey

first_imgStories told over the ages form an important part of heritage, offering the reader fragments of the past. They also provide a window into the imagination of the author. (Image: Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature)South Africa has many unique and authentic stories to tell, stories that live in the minds of those who have dreamed them, lived them or witnessed them, but who don’t have the opportunity to share them with the rest of the world.In looking to provide the stepping stones they need to get their stories out into the world, through its Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature competition, financial services group Sanlam offers promising young writers the chance to have their books published for others to read.Entries for the competition close on 7 October 2016, so there is still time for writers to enter and stand the chance of being one of the finalists.The competition has six categories: English, Afrikaans, Nguni languages, Sotho languages, Xitsonga and Tshivenda. Each category has two prizes: R12 000 for first place and R6 000 for second place.To be considered for the competition, the author’s book has to be suitable for people between the ages of 12 and 18 and be at least 25 000 words long. The competition is only open to citizens of South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Namibia and Botswana.“As a bookseller I’m constantly on the lookout for more literature that is aimed at the youth that is both published and written locally, and the sad thing is that there just isn’t enough” says Jessica Smith from The Book Lounge in Cape Town.“But with the Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature, they provide a great platform for both established authors and emerging writers and it gives them the opportunity to have their work published.”250 WORDS A DAYThe competition invites writers to join their team of established authors and take advantage of the opportunity to spend some time with programme facilitators and get tips and inspiration from established authors who act as mentors.Smith explains that the 250 words a day challenge “makes the overwhelming task of writing a full-length novel feel that much more achievable.“The guidance that they provide and the tools that you are given are just invaluable.”Listen to 2013 winner Sipho Kekezwa talk about what the win has done for him:GET INVOLVEDIf you are an aspiring writer and you feel you have a story that is worth being told, you still have time to enter this year’s competition. Visit the Sanlam Prize for Youth Literature web page for more information.Entry forms are available on the website, along with details about how to enter and share your African stories for African youth. The competition gives you an opportunity to improve your writing and dive deeper into the world of storytelling.“Even for those whose stories are not published, a spark has been ignited and a love for both reading and writing solidified,” says Smith.“I am so grateful to this competition for allowing emerging voices to be heard and for talent to be nurtured. I absolutely cannot wait to see these works on our shelves.”PLAY YOUR PARTAre you playing your part to help improve the lives of those around you or the environment?

Report says system failed 12yearold girl impregnated by stepfather

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. – She was 12, and seeking an abortion after being sexually assaulted and impregnated by her stepfather.A report released Wednesday found Newfoundland and Labrador’s child protection system responded inadequately to her case, and missed opportunities to intervene.It took two more years, and a second abortion, before the girl told authorities in another province about the abuse, according to the report from the province’s child and youth advocate.“It was really shocking and it was saddening to see that this could happen to this little girl of 12 years old,” said Jacqueline Lake Kavanagh.Kavanagh says questions weren’t asked, risk wasn’t assessed, and consents were not appropriately obtained when the girl sought and ultimately obtained an abortion after saying she had become pregnant through consensual sex with her teenaged boyfriend.“She received inadequate screening and assessments, which potentially enabled the sexual abuse of the child to continue,” Kavanagh wrote.“Had appropriate measures been taken when this child presented to terminate her pregnancy, or when child protection concerns were reported, the abuse may potentially have been detected and stopped.”The report said the family lived in Newfoundland and Labrador for about five months before moving to another province, where the girl told authorities two years later that she had repeatedly been sexually assaulted by her stepfather over a period of 26 months, resulting in two abortions.The stepfather pleaded guilty in the case and to other offences including sexual assault on other individuals, and was sentenced to 16 years in prison.The report says that shortly after arriving in Newfoundland and Labrador, the stepfather took the girl to a Planned Parenthood medical clinic seeking an abortion.The man claimed to be the girl’s biological father even though he wasn’t — the girl’s mother lived outside the province and wasn’t involved.The report says although the girl said she had consensual sex with her boyfriend, questions were’t asked about his age and the stepfather’s guardianship status wasn’t verified.The child was referred to the Eastern Health Authority for an abortion where again, age-appropriate screening and counselling services weren’t offered.“The surgery was performed despite two sections of the consent form being incomplete, one of which included the legal capacity of the stepfather to sign for consent,” the report states.The child was discharged from the hospital with her stepfather with no further followup.The report says officials with the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development (CSSD) became involved a month later, after multiple protection referrals, including one that alleged the stepfather had physically abused the 12-year-old and one of her siblings.Although the CSSD conducted some followup interviews, the child’s grandmother and stepfather eventually became unco-operative, with the stepfather claiming harassment and the grandmother refusing to allow the children to be interviewed.The family moved out of the province after four months of sporadic contact with authorities.“Essentially she was a little girl going through an adult health care system and the responses really hadn’t been set up and tailored to the needs of the child,” Kavanagh said. “There’s a red flag that should go up when a 12-year-old girl comes in pregnant.”The report says the province’s health care system needs better co-ordination of services, while health care professionals need better knowledge of child protection legislation and the CSSD needs “appropriate protective intervention and follow up.”“Work together, find out who your resources are, develop your training programs or whatever methodology that you are going to use and share it,” said Kavanagh.Noni Classen, director of education at the Canadian Centre for Child Protection in Winnipeg, said in light of the report, child protection systems across the country could stand to revisit how they deal with young children in similar circumstances.She said if there aren’t specific protocols in place, there need to be.“Right at 12 there should be an automatic response to engage in an inquiry into what’s going on,” Classen said.– By Keith Doucette in Halifaxlast_img read more
