The new garden pavilion completes the historic renovation of a small villa built in the early 1900’s by the famous Swiss architect Hans Bernoulli (1876-1953). The villa originally contained two small apartments, with few tiny rooms, and was built with simple materials. In order to meet today’s demands of a family of four, the small villa was converted into a residential house and complemented by an extension of a garden and music pavilion.Save this picture!© Maris MezulisThe new structure, slightly sunken into the ground, contains a reduced program of a music room and a large terrace.

COVID-19 affects routine Panhellenic events

(Kaitlyn Freetage/Staff Reporter) ReddIt Kaitlyn Freetage + posts World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Linkedin TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedincenter_img Student organizations and SDS find new ways to offer service hours printIn the wake of COVID-19, Panhellenic sororities have shifted to a virtual format, which has affected events, dues and recruitment.The philanthropic and sisterhood events were canceled to protect the health of members and to abide by CDC guidelines.Vivian Noyd, the president of Alpha Chi Omega, said her executive board worked tirelessly over the summer to transition the majority of their events into a virtual space. “While we had initially hoped to have a wide variety of in-person events, we’ve had to postpone many of these events,” said Noyd.“Until we can ensure safe and socially distanced events, we will exist in an entirely virtual format.” – Vivian NoydThe online format allows for easy accessibility for members who are spread across the country this semester. Some sorority members, however, have expressed concerns regarding virtual events. Adriana Fuhlage, a junior member of Gamma Phi Beta, expressed her fears regarding chapter involvement throughout the semester.“Since I’m living off campus and there are limited in-person events happening, I will rarely be seeing people who are not in my inner circle,” said Fuhlage.Philanthropic and social events make up a large sum of dues for active sorority members, which has led to questions about where member’s dues will now go. “I’m afraid some people may drop if there aren’t enough efforts for socially-distanced sisterhood events because there are questions about where the money we pay is going this year,” Fuhlage said. Noyd acknowledged concerns around dues and said it is important to recognize the financial hardships imposed on families as a result of COVID-19. “This semester, we reduced our dues by 38%,” said Noyd. “By removing expenses for events that were no longer possible due to COVID-19, we were able to reduce the cost of each member significantly.”A new online format will also be implemented for fall recruitment, and the headcount for this year’s potential new members— or PNMs — turned out better than expected. The TCU Panhellenic recruitment team posted a recruitment booklet that walks PNMs through recruitment processes and expectations. (Photo courtesy of TCU Panhellenic.)In the fall 2019 semester, 58.4% of first years joined a sorority, equating to roughly 772 women. This year, recruiters expect a record-breaking 1,000-1,100 PNMs. Liza Bilich, a senior recruiter of Delta Gamma, said her sorority is working hard to accommodate the surplus of PNMs entering this year’s recruitment, despite formatting changes. “We have to learn a completely new way of speaking to girls,” said Bilich. “There are also a lot of tech issues with Zoom that we have to work fast to fix, so it will be a big adjustment.”Bilich added the online format will prevent PNMs from developing the initial personal connections women received in previous years. “Things are different this year because the potential new members don’t get the same face-to-face interactions current members got during their recruitment experience,” said Bilich. “Despite this, we’re happy to have the opportunity to hold recruitment and are excited to meet the girls.”Members have attended workshops via Zoom in preparation for recruitment, which starts Sept. 13.For more details on recruitment and contact information, visit the Panhellenic website.

NGOs call for press freedom to be respected

first_img The undersigned organizations call on the government of Israel to allow the foreign media access to the cities of the West Bank. The prolonged attempt to seal off entire cities, where hundreds of thousands of people live, has been excessive, unjustifiable and utterly counterproductive.We furthermore call on Israeli officials to desist from public attacks on the foreign press in which irresponsible generalizations have been employed to criticize the way we conduct our business. They only undermine the freedom of the press and endanger journalists. We also repeat our fervent call on Israel to accredit Palestinian journalists working for the foreign press out of the Palestinian territories. The current operation in Areas A only shows, yet again, why these professionals need, for their safety, to be able to identify themselves to Israeli soldiers as journalists. The government promised to issue “territories-only” accreditations two months ago, and the promise has not been implemented. We call on the government to make good on this pledge without any further delay. At the same time we call on all the Palestinian factions to cease efforts to confiscate materials or intimidate journalists. Attempts to suppress unflattering visuals are utterly unacceptable. We call on the Palestinian authorities to reject such tactics unequivocally.The foreign press here has a proud and long tradition of excellent and unbiased journalism. Its job is to report this complicated and delicate story — a story that generates tremendous interest abroad. It is important that it be allowed to carry out this mission.9 April 2002Foreign Press Association (Jerusalem) Committee to Protect journalists (New York) International Federation of Journalists (Brussels) International Press Institute (Vienna) Reporters sans frontières (Paris)World Association of Newspapers (Paris) Follow the news on Israel Organisation RSF_en IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Press freedom has sharply deteriorated in the Palestinian towns occupied bythe Israeli army.

Photo courtesy HillsidesThree days after he was born, Howard Shulman contracted an infection that attacked his face, devouring his nose, lips, lower right eyelid, tear ducts, and upper palate. His parents abandoned him at the hospital, and he became a ward of New Jersey under the care of a state-employed experimental surgeon. As a child, he underwent innumerable skin and bone grafts and reconstructive surgeries that left him in constant pain and a bullied outcast.Shulman relates his tortured childhood and ultimately successful adulthood in a haunting memoir, Running from the Mirror, published by Sandra Jonas Publishing House. In the book, Shulman tells of how a chance event led him to meet his birth mother, and how he was finally able to make peace with his parents and create a meaningful, rich life for himself.The book was released on October 5 to coincide with Child Health Day and Global Bullying Prevention Day.Shulman is donating five percent of each book sold to Hillsides. He said he is giving back to Hillsides due to his own experiences in the foster care system and Hillsides efforts to help children find stability and a safe, loving environment. “I know how hard it is,” he said.He especially remembers the shock and pain of emancipating from the foster care system. “When I turned 18, they gave you a birth certificate, shook your hand, and said good luck,” he said. One of Hillsides core programs, Youth Moving On, seeks to remedy the challenges facing emancipated youth by offering them affordable transitional and permanent housing and other services.It took Shulman seven years to write the memoir, which he wrote longhand, filling 15 notepads. He said writing the book was cathartic.Running from the Mirror retails for $14.95 softcover or $7.99 as an ebook and is available through either Amazon or the publisher. The book was recently profiled in the Daily Mail.Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, is a nonprofit organization serving children in foster care and families in crisis. Founded in 1913, the agency serves more than 6,000 children and families throughout Los Angeles County, including Pomona, Baldwin Park, and Echo Park.

Innovations in the Air

first_imgScience and Technology Innovations in the Air By ALEX ROTH Published on Thursday, January 28, 2016 | 11:03 am First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Top of the News (From left to right): Scott Fouse/Lockheed Martin Corporation, John Tracy/The Boeing Company, Erik Antonsson/Northrop Grumman Corporation, and Vandad Espahbodi/Starburst Accelerator. Credit: Vicki Chiu, EAS Communications Office/CaltechSure, Google’s driverless car is pretty cool. But according to key leaders in the aerospace industry, much of the world’s most innovative work is happening not in Silicon Valley but in the laboratories at their companies, where researchers are expanding the boundaries of everything from space travel to deep-sea exploration.At the “Innovation in Aerospace” forum held at Caltech on Friday, January 22—part of the Idea 2 Innovation series cosponsored by Innovate Pasadena and Caltech—three of the aerospace industry’s biggest companies discussed some of their most exciting new ventures. Northrop Grumman’s Starshade project could help find life on other planets. Boeing’s new unmanned Echo Seeker submarine is capable of diving 20,000 feet below sea level. Lockheed Martin’s new imaging technology could radically shrink the size of space telescopes, making it far more efficient to send them deep into space.Executives from each of the three companies, along with a representative from the start-up incubator Starburst Accelerator, were guided by moderator Andrea Belz (PhD ’00), USC Marshall School of Business entrepreneur in residence, in a wide-ranging discussion about aerospace innovation and the quest to invent better models for fostering creative thinking—or, as several panelists put it, “being innovative in how we innovate”—as well as about the challenges of competing for talent with headline-grabbing companies like Google, Facebook, and Uber.In addition, unlike those companies, innovators in aerospace work in a heavily regulated environment. And in the battle to attract attention and talent, the industry also faces this hurdle: it cannot discuss some of its most innovative work in public because it is often government-funded and top-secret.That battle to attract and retain new and young talent, the forum’s participants said, is critical, because the average age of the aerospace industry’s engineers is increasing. Unlike in the days of the Apollo space missions, when much of the industry’s workforce was in its 20s, today an estimated half of the industry’s engineers are eligible for retirement within the next five years, according to panelist John Tracy, Boeing’s chief technology officer.“You’ve got to make sure that the next generation is going to come along that has the vision, that has the passion, that has the drive, and has the desire to create the future of aerospace,” Tracy said.The forum was held at Caltech’s Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics; in addition to Boeing’s Tracy, the panel included Scott Fouse, vice president of the Advance Technology Center at Lockheed Martin; Erik Antonsson, Northrop Grumman’s corporate director of technology; and Starburst Accelerator cofounder Vandad Espahbodi.Much of the discussion centered on ways in which the industry might foster creativity without getting in its way. The panelists acknowledged that large companies like Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, and Boeing face this dilemma not only when nurturing talent internally but also when trying to partner with smaller start-up companies working on cutting-edge technologies.“The trick is, if you touch the start-up at such a young, nascent stage, you will kill it, you will defeat its potential,” Starburst’s Espahbodi warned, adding that the goal thus becomes to find the right level of noninvasive partnership that will “help them succeed at arm’s length.”The panelists disputed the notion that companies like theirs are too monolithic and bureaucratic to allow individual employees to innovate. Northrop Grumman’s Antonsson, a former Caltech professor of mechanical engineering, noted that the company spends more than half a billion dollars annually on research and development.These resources, he said, give the company freedom to experiment. In fact, Antonsson added, it was just this sort of experimentation by one of the company’s small internal research groups that produced the Starshade, a technology that will help researchers look at planets dozens of light-years away—including those possibly hospitable to life—by using a space-traveling shade to block the light from stars near those planets.Mory Gharib, Caltech’s Hans W. Liepmann Professor of Aeronautics and Bioinspired Engineering, director of the Graduate Aerospace Laboratories, and vice provost, says he thought the forum underscored the vital importance of the industry. He notes that while Uber, for instance, is a revolutionary company, its disappearance would not have a particularly dramatic impact on Americans’ lives. “But imagine if Boeing disappeared,” says Gharib, who delivered opening remarks at the forum.Guruswami (Ravi) Ravichandran, Caltech’s John E. Goode, Jr., Professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and the Otis Booth Leadership Chair of the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, says the forum was “another example of the exciting and inspiring developments I have been observing in the Southern California aerospace industry over the past several years.”As Ravichandran, who delivered closing remarks, says, the four panel members not only “have the expertise and the knowledge, but they’re also able to inspire people through stories.” Business News Your email address will not be published.

Most states have only attached circulars. Circulars & paper work is not something that is required. What is required is that how that is being implemented,” said Kumar.In light of this, the bench also directed that those states which had filed an affidavit already may also file an additional better affidavit.Kumar also highlighted 3 press reports stipulating the ground situation. He added that the situation was indeed “pitiable”.At this juncture, Justice Bhushan remarked that individual matters could not be taken under Article 32 and that it was for the state to take care of.On the last date, the court had recognized the obligation of the Government in taking care and protecting the elderly who live alone, by securing the availability of essential goods and services to them.To this end, the Court directed the Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to make sure that old-age pension continues to be paid on a regular and timely basis.Furthermore, all States have been directed to provide prompt responses to requests made by senior citizens, especially those living alone during these times of COVID-19. The Court thus acknowledged the need to assure the elderly of effective assistance, as and when such assistance was called for.Taking further stock of the situation, the Apex Court had also asked the Central Government to ensure that caregivers across old-age homes are provided with necessary precautionary equipment. Justice Bhushan stressed that all caregivers should wear Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) kits and follow the safety norms regarding sanitization and precautions to be taken against COVID-19.The Bench was hearing a petition filed by former Union Law Minister and Senior Advocate Ashwani Kumar, which throws light on the concerns of senior citizens living alone and seeks Rights of the Elderly to be safeguarded.Government policies and legislation intended to secure the rights and dignity of the elderly are not being adequately enforced, Former Union Law Minister and Senior Advocate Dr. Ashwani Kumar submitted before the Supreme Court on Friday.The plea is related to Dr. Kumar’s plea of 2018 seeking a direction to the Centre to increase the monthly pension for senior citizens.Government policies and legislation intended to secure the rights and dignity of the elderly are not being adequately enforced, Former Union Law Minister and Senior Advocate Dr. Ashwani Kumar had told the Supreme Court in December, 2018.The instant case is now being taken up from the lens of care for the elderly during the ongoing pandemic.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

She adds that these statements cannot be deemed hate speech.”That the petitioner has further chosen this petition to ensure that the government which the final authority to determine free-speech policy and also which is also more equipped to carry out detailed investigation is bypassed and not given a chance to take a decision.
