Located on a grassy, oak tree shaded hillside with a creek traveling through the southeastern portion of the lot, the site is emblematic of the Northern California landscape. A portion of the site is protected for a stream that carries the run-off of much of the neighboring properties and fluctuates dramatically throughout the year. The house is situated near the top of the sloped lot, with its back to the neighbor to the west above. The design takes advantage of the views towards the trees as well as perches above the potential flood plain of the site. The project includes a master plan, site development and the design of two structures: a garage/office/guest suite and a main house. Both structures are less than 3000 sq. ft. making it comfortable for two. The clients wanted to create a minimalist retreat away from San Francisco where they could escape and enjoy privacy within the landscape.Save this picture!© Jasper SanidadThe driveway takes one over a culvert and through the trees towards the house. The natural landscape gives way to a plateau of decomposed granite containing the manicured area surrounding the two buildings. Windows frame views including a courtyard space made by the interstitial space between the two structures. The office, part of the first building, can be easily converted into a guest space with a Murphy bed that is part of a thickened cabinetry wall. The main house is a simple bar structure, open towards the view with the secondary spaces lining the length of the building along the hillside. The living area, dining area, kitchen and small office are all open. Built-in shelving allow the owners to display a curated collection of pottery picked up during frequent trips to Asia.Save this picture!© Daniel BernauerSave this picture!Floor planExterior materials include a gray corrugated metal siding, a smooth cream stucco wrapping the inverted surfaces along the facade, and birch veneer at doors and lining the ceiling at the entry that slides from exterior to interior.Save this picture!© Daniel BernauerProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in a Gaothan / unTAGSelected ProjectsTLP Apartment / Renato Mendonça ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share Atterbury & Associates CopyAbout this officeStudio Sarah WillmerOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHealdsburgOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on January 09, 2020Cite: “Sonoma Retreat / Studio Sarah Willmer” 09 Jan 2020.

They showed him a number of articles posted online which Gouting accepted he had written. After the hearing, Guoting said it was an “unjustified official punishment”. Wei Ru-Jiu told Reporters Without Borders that the ruling was “illegal”.Guoting had contributed an article to the website of the magazine Epoch Times on 16 February, in which he explained why he had defending a member of the Falungong spiritual movement, Qu Yanlai, imprisoned near Shanghai.Guoding, also known as Thomas Guo, is one of very few Chinese lawyers prepared to defend journalists and cyberdissidents.

Pasadena Appeals Court Puts Brief Hold on L.A. Judge’s Skid Row Order

first_imgCommunity News Pasadena Appeals Court Puts Brief Hold on L.A. Judge’s Skid Row Order By FRED SHUSTER, City News Service Published on Thursday, May 13, 2021 | 2:47 pm Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Top of the News Community News More Cool Stuff Make a comment Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * 25 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it A Pasadena federal appeals court today put a brief hold on a judge’s order that the city and county of Los Angeles must offer housing to the homeless population of Skid Row by the middle of October.Attorneys for the county asked the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals two weeks ago for an emergency stay of U.S. District Judge David O. Carter’s April 20 housing order, arguing that the ruling is overly broad and causes more problems than it solves.In its ruling, the appeals panel placed an administrative hold on the judge’s decree until June 15 in order to determine the impact of an evidentiary hearing scheduled later this month in the case.Carter has scheduled proceedings in downtown Los Angeles on May 26 and 27 to discuss possible modifications to his order, financial arrangements to pay for homeless housing and other issues.The appellate court also asked for additional briefs from all parties, with the goal of a 9th Circuit hearing in July.Carter’s order set a timetable for offers of shelter to be made to about 2,000 homeless people living on the streets of Skid Row by October. The sprawling 50-block area just blocks from Staples Center contains one of the largest populations of indigent people in the nation.The ruling is part of a lawsuit brought last year against the city and county by the L.A. Alliance for Human Rights, a group made up of downtown business owners and Skid Row residents who argue that local government had mismanaged the homelessness crisis and wasted public money while the numbers of people living on the streets increases.During more than a dozen federal court hearings, the lawsuit has become bogged down in bureaucratic snarls between the city and county, prompting Carter to deploy the power of the federal court to speed up efforts to get city sidewalks cleared and place homeless people into housing.Earlier this week, Carter rejected the county’s bid to be dismissed from the case altogether, finding that the county’s claims of immunity are “inapplicable.”L.A. Alliance lawyers have written that Skid Row is a “catastrophe created by the city and county” in which the city long ago adopted a policy of “physical containment” where the poor, disabled and mentally ill would be “contained” inside the delineated borders of downtown.In response to the county’s initial request to stay his timetable, the judge reiterated his intention to keep the mandate in place and added new directives with an admonition that without a global settlement, his housing deadlines would remain in place.

United State of Women speakers share their messages to young women everywhere

first_imgRodin Eckenroth/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Inspiration and motivation for change –- those were the resounding themes at this year’s United State of Women summit in Los Angeles. Thousands of women descended upon the Shrine Auditorium to listen to powerhouse women speak on all manner of topics ranging from the gender pay gap to sexual violence against women to women in politics. Michelle Obama, Tracee Ellis Ross, Jane Fonda, Valerie Jarrett, Tina Tchen and many other women spoke at the summit to crowds of viewers hanging on their every word. The atmosphere was one of hope –- hope for change and for a better future for young women everywhere. “Good Morning America” spoke to some of the inspiring women at the summit and asked: “What’s your message to young women everywhere?” Olympian Jordyn Wieber, who has been outspoken about sexual abuse since confronting disgraced sports doctor Larry Nassar in court earlier this year, told “GMA” that women should feel empowered to “have a voice.” “If you feel you were sexually abused or you were sexually abused you can speak out, tell people, tell people until they listen, hold your abusers accountable. And it’s okay. We believe you,” Wieber said. Her words came after a powerful moment when Wieber joined Aly Raisman, Tiffany Lopez and Jeanette Antolin on stage as “sister survivors” of Larry Nassar, each speaking out against sexual abuse. Sophia Bush spoke to “GMA” after introducing the brave athletes to the stage, saying it was “an honor to bear witness to their experience.” She called the summit “invaluable” and said she wanted young women everywhere to know that “they have communities at large of other women — some who know them, some who don’t — who are standing by to listen and support them.” Model Iskra Lawrence was at the summit representing Aerie and their #AerieReal modeling campaign, which promotes photos — not retouched at all — of Lawrence, Yara Shahidi, Aly Raisman and others to inspire body positivity. She said her message to young women is to “believe in themselves.” “Their power is by being themselves and I feel like when we are free from the confines of insecurity, we show our true power and we’re enabled to be exactly who we are meant to be and we shine our brightest … then we can work to give, to be better people, to work together to move forward and I think after the year that we’ve had we just want women to feel empowered and to feel like they are not alone and they have a sisterhood,” Lawrence told “GMA.” Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, spoke to “GMA” after taking the stage at the USOW alongside Jane Fonda. They spoke about disproportionally high incarceration rates in African American communities and racism in America. Fonda told a cheering crowd that she’s “studying” racism in America after having realized “the lens through which I have been looking at race is too shallow.” She advocated ending the war on drugs and the construction of new prisons. Cullors, who praised Fonda on stage and told the crowd “every white woman in the audience please take heed,” told “GMA” she wants young women to “show up for your truth. Be courageous, be effective and strategic and get the job done.” She said she wants women across America “to see our strength, to show up for our lives and to remember that the work that women do saves the rest of the world.” Valerie Jarrett, one of the co-chairs of USOW, said she wanted women to leave the summit “better informed.” She told “GMA” she wanted her message to young women to be to “get involved in your community.” “Your voices matter. We hear them loud and clearly and you need to go back home and change your community,” she said. “Take what you learn here today and make the world better.” Tarana Burke echoed that same sentiment when speaking to “GMA.” She said she wanted women to leave the summit not just with inspiration but with motivation. “You have power now. You don’t have to wait until you’re an adult, you don’t have to wait for someone to give it to you,” she said. “Your voice, your strength means something regardless of your age.” Tina Tchen, fellow USOW co-chair, brought her daughter, a rising college senior, to the summit along with her. She said it’s important to empower women that age and said, “They are not just the future leaders of our country. They are the leaders of our country right now.” She told “GMA” it’s important to make sure that young women “are empowered and that they have the tools they need to succeed.” “Use your voice,” she added. “Get registered and vote.” Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, who was at the summit representing her company Foodstirs, said that as a female business owner she wants young women to believe in themselves. “Believe in yourself and you can make a difference. I think that we’re all striving for the same thing at the end of the day. We want to have inclusion we want to be credited for the work that we do,” she said. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
