For that work he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the college, the only person ever to have been recognized in this way.In 2008, he also was awarded the Republic of Vanuatu’s highest and most distinguished award, the Badge of Honour of Vanuatu.His funeral will be held in the Anglican Cathedral in Honiara on Thursday, May 16.Pogo is survived by his wife Roslyn and their three adult children.

Blueys Beach House 4 / Bourne Blue Architecture

first_imgArchDaily Engineer:Izzat Consulting EngineersCity:Blueys BeachCountry:AustraliaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Shane BlueText description provided by the architects. Blueys Beach is a popular holiday destination, on the Mid North Coast of NSW. The original houses in this coastal village are simple fibro or weatherboard structures. They are weather beaten and basic, yet they generally offer a relaxing beach holiday experience. Unfortunately, when properties change hands, original buildings are often replaced by large suburban houses, which have little recognition of place and relate poorly to the immediate contextSave this picture!© Shane BlueThis house was designed on an empty but narrow (12m x 42m) block. A large Angophera tree and some Cabbage palms exist at the front of the block, there was also a large Angophera at the rear. The site slopes gently down to the rear, and overlooks grassland and forested hills.Save this picture!© Shane BlueThe client’s brief was for a simple holiday house that retained the Angopheras and made the most of the views to the rear. It must not be ostentatious and must fit in well with the context. There is easy transition from the beach to the house and surfaces are hardy so that durability is not a concern. The living spaces open easily to the deck in the sun, or the shady courtyard and the ‘carport’ is ostensibly a roofed outdoor area for dining or game.Save this picture!PlanThe challenge was to arrange the house for privacy, yet enable strong connections to external spaces. The building is essentially two elements – One for sleeping, one for living. A roof form zig zags over the forms, creating a cohesive whole. The spaces adjacent these elements form courtyards and decks, for outdoor livingSave this picture!© Shane BlueThe structure steps with the land so that when viewed from the street, the bulk is minimized. Much of the living space on the site is actually outside the buildings, in the courtyard or on decks. This works well with the indoor / outdoor nature of visiting here. Materials throughout relate to the context of the village, are economical and corrosion resistant. Timber is used extensively, floors are all polished concrete internally, stone externally. Eaves are fibre cement.Save this picture!© Shane BlueSustainable features – Hi performance glass to all doors and windows. Correctly orientated thermal mass. Heavy insulation to walls and ceilings, Rainwater harvesting for wc, laundry, garden usage, minimal footprint to building, using less materials and resources, sustainable timber use such as reconstituted timber concealed structure, birch plywood linings and joinery internally, sustainably forested cladding, Heat Pump hot water technology.Save this picture!© Shane BlueProject gallerySee allShow lessEmpty Oil Cans May Not Be the Reason for Tainan Building CollapseArchitecture NewsWorkshop by Ken Yeang at Ajman University of Science & Technology, UAEWorkshop Share Blueys Beach House 4 / Bourne Blue ArchitectureSave this projectSaveBlueys Beach House 4 / Bourne Blue Architecture Projects Area:  119 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Architects: Bourne Blue Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Blueys Beach House 4 / Bourne Blue Architecture 2015 Save this picture!© Shane Blue+ 31 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers: James Hardie Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Houses Photographs:  Shane Blue Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Sugar Creek Building Builder: Australia CopyHouses•Blueys Beach, Australia “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBourne Blue ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBlueys BeachAustraliaPublished on February 09, 2016Cite: “Blueys Beach House 4 / Bourne Blue Architecture” 09 Feb 2016.

Previously maximum grants were up to £600,000. Grants can now be for 2 to 5 years.Empowering Young People’s objectives are largely similar to previous grant rounds. We’re looking to fund projects that meet one or more of the objectives below:• More young people have the skills they need for the future• Young people have better relationships with their support networks and communities• Young people have improved health and wellbeingCrucial to applications is that they can show that young people are fully involved in the development, design, running and evaluation of the project.After organisations apply the process will be:• An initial assessment• Initial feedback• A visit from Big Lottery Fund staff• A decisionThe final decision about applications will be made by either staff within the Fund (if your application is under £200,000) or a committee of independent experts and young people (if your application is over £200,000).

Ongoing repercussions from the Central Park Five case

first_imgThe four-part Netflix series “When They See Us,” directed by  African-American director Ava DuVernay, has set off an avalanche of long overdue repercussions for the high-profile prosecutors who in 1989 framed up five African-American and Latinx youth in New York City. Known as the Central Park Five, the teenagers were arrested, prosecuted and sentenced as guilty for the sexual assault of a white woman, Trisha Meili, referred to in the press as the “Central Park jogger.”The Central Park Five, from left to right, Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana Jr., Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam, attend the premiere of “When They See Us” at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, N.Y., on May 20.The case garnered both national and international attention due to the extreme racist demonization of these youth, now in their 40s, by the New York Police Department, the courts and the mainstream media.  Donald Trump, a publicity-seeking New York real estate developer, actually called for the death penalty for these youth, and to this day has refused to publicly apologize to the Five.  The Five spent seven to 13 years of their life in prison until they were exonerated in 2002, when Matias Reyes, already in prison, confessed to the rape, and his DNA matched evidence from the victim.The DuVernay series details how the New York police coerced false confessions from the youths with physical and psychological torture, and then railroaded Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salam, Raymond Santana, and Corey Wise to jail for the attack. The series also dramatizes the emotional toll of the racist media frenzy and frame-up.In the aftermath of the series exposé, Linda Fairstein, who in 1989 was head of the Sex Crimes Prosecution Unit in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, has lost the publisher of her crime novels, Dutton, as well as her agent, ICM Publishing.She has also resigned from the boards of Vassar College and Safe Horizon, a victims’ resource group.Elizabeth Lederer, lead prosecutor in the case, has resigned from her job as a lecturer at Columbia Law School. That action was called for by the school’s Black Students Organization, whose online petition received over 11,000 signatures as of this writing.  That petition also calls for Columbia to revoke Fairstein’s Award of Excellence, made by the university’s School of Medicine.On Twitter there is a popular hashtag called #cancelLindaFairstein.  ‘When They See Us’ shines light on repressionOther demands prompted by DuVernay’s series include reopening all cases handled by Lederer and Fairstein between 1976 and 2002. Called for by New York legal defense groups and the city’s Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, these forces also call for the Manhattan DA to fire Lederer, who still serves as an assistant DA and is called “an attorney in good standing” by Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance.Raymond Santana, one of the five, has also called for the release of unredacted depositions, which would show the extent of the police lying and coercion.It took DuVernay’s powerful dramatization of the NYPD’s racist coercion tactics to accomplish what many voices had been urging for years. After the excellent Sarah Burns’ documentary, “The Central Park Five,” came out in 2012, the Columbia Black Law Students Association circulated a petition calling for Lederer’s removal.However, in a June 11 letter, the association stated that in 2013: “Instead of taking decisive action to address the issue, Columbia Law School simply removed the Central Park jogger case from Lederer’s online bio.”The confession by Reyes in 2002 should have been a career-ending moment for legions of New York power players — not only prosecutors, but also cops and media forces — whose racist tag-team recalled the railroading of the Scottsboro 9 during the 1930s and the lynching of 14-year-old Emmet Till in 1955.But no. After that, Fairstein went on to a lucrative career writing New York Times-bestselling crime novels.The difference this time around is that DuVernay’s series has struck a chord with the masses. It has been seen worldwide by millions of people. “When They See Us” is Netflix’s most-viewed show every day since it premiered on May 31. In Britain, it’s the online channel’s second-most-watched show.While the falsely accused Five received a $41 million settlement, which can never give back their youth, the city of New York has never apologized or acknowledged wrongdoing.For her part, Fairstein is doubling down, using the Wall Street Journal to attack DuVernay’s film. She claims it’s “so full of distortions and falsehoods as to be an outright fabrication.” (Washington Post, June 11)Because the testimony by the Five was coerced, it was so inconsistent it was branded inadmissible by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance when the charges were vacated in 2002. Yet Fairstein not only relies on that coerced testimony; she resurrects the old prosecution theory that there was another assailant, not Reyes — whom none of the framed-up youth ever mentioned in the “testimony” she relies on!Amazingly, Fairstein claims she supports the 2002 vacation of charges, but resurrects the old racist NYPD argument that even if they didn’t commit the crime that Reyes did, they were still up to no good.At this point, the strongest role being played by any apologist for the conviction of the Five is to cover up for the current crimes of the NYPD and all police. Fairstein and others join the ranks of NYPD lawyer Stuart London, who on June 13 claimed Eric Garner died not from Daniel Pantaleo’s chokehold, which the whole world witnessed, but because of his plus size.Both the gangster-style gunning down of Brandon Webber in Memphis, Tenn., on June 12 and the violent racist police assault on May 27 of a young Black family after their 4-year-old left a Family Dollar store in Phoenix with a 99-cent doll — are the kinds of events that NYPD spokespeople are defending. They strengthen the chord that DuVernay’s series has struck.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The $10 million facility located behind the Coliseum was designed specifically for livestock shows and was made necessary by the 2 year renovation of the Coliseum that is currently underway. Andre Lacy, chairman of the State Fair Commission, said the story behind the Youth Arena is an amazing one.

Champion 4-H Meat Goat WhetherMegan Brooks, 18 of Clark County Reserve Champion 4-H Black Faced Crossbred Market LambJordan Stillwell, 17 of Clinton County With the Coliseum closed, there was no place to hold livestock shows during the State Fair and no money in the budget to build one.  Lacy said the State Fair then embarked on its first private fund raising endeavor to raise the $10 million to construct the state of the art Youth Arena.  The facility, which holds two separate livestock rings and provides a modern, intimate setting for 4-H competitions and animal expositions, was build with private donations from companies and individuals.  The Youth Arena’s stylish exterior includes tinted glass and Indiana limestone. Inside, it has an arena floor comparable to the Coliseum’s with easy access for people and livestock.  While the facility has been in use during the State Fair, the official dedication took place on Saturday with Governor Pence and Lt. Governor Ellspermann participating. 2013 Indiana State FairCelebration AwardsPresented By Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance Reserve Grand Champion 4-H BarrowKatelyn O’Farrell, 17 of Carroll County Champion 4-H Chester White BarrowDalaney Vickrey, 12 of Huntington County Champion Cache of 4-H HoneyWyatt Helfin, 15 of Wabash Countycenter_img Previous articleTodd Janzen: Fight Over Tractor Teaches the Lesson of “Mutual Mistake”Next articleHas the Indiana State Fair Abandoned Livestock Agriculture?

Here 25 awards were presented to 4-H exhibitors in recognition of their championship achievements at the 2013 State Fair. State Fair Board President Steve Simmerman explained that the livestock auction had been losing financial support for several years, and it was becoming more difficult for families to raise funds locally.  This new system rewards each winner with funds provide solely by the Indiana State Fair. While some parents attending the program missed the tradition of the auction in the Coliseum, they admitted this system was much easier and less stressful on the families involved.    The financial award given to each exhibitor was determined by a formula that involved their champion status, market value, and Celebration Award.

Genprex Recognizes World Cancer Day

first_img WhatsApp Genprex Recognizes World Cancer Day Local NewsBusiness Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 4, 2021– Genprex, Inc. (“Genprex” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: GNPX ), a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes, announces today that it joins with millions of healthcare advocates around the world in support of World Cancer Day in order to raise awareness, elevate the public understanding of the global cancer burden, promote greater equity and ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda. “At Genprex, our primary focus is on the patients and communities we serve. Toward that end, we are relentless in our pursuit to bring innovative and life-saving oncology treatments to patients suffering with cancers for which there are limited or no treatment options,” said Rodney Varner, Chief Executive Officer of Genprex. “This World Cancer Day, we extend great appreciation to our research colleagues around the world who are working to alleviate the global cancer burden and to the patients who graciously offer their support through participation in clinical trials in the hope of finding new and effective treatments, not only for themselves, but for those who come after them.” Genprex is reprogramming the course of cancer by developing gene therapies that have been designed and optimized to administer cancer-fighting genes. The Company’s lead product candidate, REQORSA™ immunogene therapy, may be administered in combination with approved therapies, such as targeted therapies and immunotherapies. Genprex holds an FDA Fast Track Designation for development of REQORSA™ in combination with EGFR inhibitor, Tagrisso® (marketed by AstraZeneca), in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients whose disease progressed after treatment with Tagrisso. Genprex is advancing plans for its upcoming Acclaim-1 and Acclaim-2 clinical trials that combine REQORSA with Tagrisso® and with Keytruda® (marketed by Merck & Co., Inc.), respectively, for the treatment of NSCLC, both of which are on track to be initiated in the first-half of 2021. About Genprex, Inc. Genprex, Inc. is a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing therapies for patients with cancer and diabetes. Genprex’s technologies are designed to administer disease-fighting genes to provide new therapies for large patient populations with cancer and diabetes who currently have limited treatment options. Genprex works with world-class institutions and collaborators to develop drug candidates to further its pipeline of gene therapies in order to provide novel treatment approaches. The Company’s lead product candidate, REQORSA™ ( quaratusugene ozeplasmid ), is being evaluated as a treatment for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). REQORSA has a multimodal mechanism of action that has been shown to interrupt cell signaling pathways that cause replication and proliferation of cancer cells; re-establish pathways for apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells; and modulate the immune response against cancer cells. REQORSA has also been shown to block mechanisms that create drug resistance. In January 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Fast Track Designation for REQORSA for NSCLC in combination therapy with osimertinib (AstraZeneca’s Tagrisso®) for patients with EFGR mutations whose tumors progressed after treatment with osimertinib alone .
