Lawrence MacIsaac recalls stories of his great grandfather using the property to teach his sons how to snare rabbits, while his great grandmother commonly used the ‘laundry stone’ at the bottom of a small waterfall to wash clothing. With the extremely steep sides of the gorge it was difficult to do anything with the land, including the harvesting of trees, so it was left to grow wild.Save this picture!© DoublespaceBefore there was a site, there was an idea of a cabin in nature. As the Northeastern seaboard urbanized, the client longed for an escape to a wilder land. Arriving in Cape Breton, they found a culture and remoteness no longer common to the United States.Save this picture!© DoublespaceTo leverage the surrounding landscape, the home would put the outdoor environment on display and encourage the occupants to get out and explore the terrain. On a trip to Nova Scotia, Kevin Briody and Design Base 8 became fascinated with the built typologies of the region.Save this picture!PlanAfter working closely with the client through numerous design iterations, Design Base 8, a design collective based in NYC, reached out to Omar Gandhi Architect of Halifax to collaborate on the final design, detailing, and construction process.Save this picture!© DoublespaceThe cabin at Rabbit Snare Gorge is the result. It is the first of three small creature-like structures hidden in the mysterious landscape.Save this picture!SectionThe cabin is the primary dwelling on a 46 acre parcel of land found on the rugged wooded coastline of rural Cape Breton. The cabin is a gently adapted gabled tower which allows it to reach above the forest canopy with two major viewing platforms, one oriented directly towards the ocean and the other along the length of the convergent brook valley.Save this picture!© DoublespaceThe landscape of Rabbit Snare Gorge is defined by the steep slopes of the Cape Breton Highlands, Acadian forest, deep gorges cut by a babbling brook, and the rocky cliffs of the Northumberland Strait. The elevated position of the site allows for a long, wide view of the entire property including the head of the gorge leading towards the ocean. The procession from this rough landscape into the cabin begins with the entry and bedrooms on the ground floor, a double height kitchen and dining room on the second floor, and lastly the living space on the third floor with the final lookout view of the entire property.Save this picture!© DoublespaceThe structure is linked to the local vernacular by a number of formal elements. The archetypal gable and shed forms of the cabin are combined to open views and follow the path of the sun, emphasize the major interior spaces, and accentuate the verticality of the tower, while efficiently shedding snow and rain. Traditional, local wood board cladding is used on the exterior of the cabin. The cabin’s steel entry hoop takes its shape from the entry windbreaks unique to the Cape Breton and Newfoundland coastal communities.Save this picture!© DoublespaceLight on the land, heavy against the windThe client, an avid outdoorsman and hobby arborist, has a sincere respect for the natural landscape. Therefore, sensitivity to site and ecological preservation was an early and major design parameter. The tower typology of the cabin offers elevated views and ample programming within a minimal footprint. However, the exposure of the sloped site means it endures the full brunt of heavy Atlantic rainstorms, winter Nor’easters, corrosive salt-spray from crashing swell, and strong suetes winds—local south-easterlies which accelerate down the Highland escarpment to reach speeds of over 200km/h.Save this picture!© DoublespaceThe strong, local suetes demand a robust structural system to withstand major lateral and uplift loads. The tall cabin combats these high winds through redundant sheathing—every solid plane, including the interior partition wall, contribute as shear walls, diaphragms and stacked compression rings. The windbreak, constructed out of welded weathering steel, is then hung from the framing.

Teen lovers Mary Chapa, left, and Mollie Olgin.The winds of racism, sexism, bigotry, oppression and right-wing animus blow strong across the United States. Decades of struggles for justice, equality and liberation have occurred, some gains have been won, and consciousness on many social issues has changed for the better among the broad masses of working-class people.Yet Black youth and other youth of color, such as Trayvon Martin, are still gunned down by racists and racist cops; immigrants are increasingly persecuted by vigilantes and police authorities at all levels; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people remain targets of bias and hate; women are still victims of violence and murder at high rates.“The ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of its ruling class,” wrote Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in the “Communist Manifesto” some 164 years ago. In the U.S. in 2012, those words still ring true.The ruling class — or 1%, as the Occupy Wall Street movement aptly calls it — uses the “ideas” of racism and white supremacy, bigotry against LGBTQ people, male supremacy, sexism and misogyny, anti-immigrant bias and other hatreds in nonstop, countless ways in order to sow division and disunity among the 99%. They hope this keeps us at each other’s throats instead of uniting against the 1% to demand jobs, housing, education, health care, equality and respect for all.So it was sad and shocking, but not totally shocking, to learn of the horrific, murderous attack that occurred in Portland, Texas, a suburb of Corpus Christi, on June 22. Mollie Judith Olgin, 19, and Mary Kristene Chapa, 18, were discovered early in the morning of June 23 on the ground in knee-high grass at a busy neighborhood park. Each had been shot in the head, execution-style, about nine hours earlier.Olgin and Chapa were lesbians, teenage lovers and Latinas. Olgin was dead at the scene and Chapa was rushed to a hospital. Although she was in critical condition with serious injuries, Chapa is recovering. According to Chapa, their assailant was a white male in his twenties.LGBTQ activist Wayne Besen, founder of Truth Wins Out, immediately traveled there. He wrote: “While in town I visited the Portland Police Department, where I was handed a generic statement that read, ‘There continues to be no evidence that the attack was motivated by the victims’ sexual orientation.’“Of course, we all know this is absurd. Any time a gay couple [is] murdered without explanation, their sexual orientation has to be considered a top-tier motive. Even as the daily lives of LGBT people improve, the world is still filled with human ticking time bombs primed by preachers and politicians to hate.” (advocate.com, July 5)Vigils fueled by grief & outrageCalls for justice on social media, fueled by grief and outrage, resulted in at least 20 vigils coast to coast in Olgin’s honor and for Chapa’s recovery, including in Portland, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth and Austin, Texas; San Francisco; Seattle; Washington, D.C.; and New York City. “Remember Mollie! Remember Mary! We want justice!” was one of the chants that erupted in New York’s Union Square on July 1. (edgedallas.com, July 6)As of July 15, Olgin’s killer walks free, and the police still refuse to investigate her murder as a hate crime, according to ABC News. Chapa, who is recovering from brain injuries, has provided police sketch artists with details of the white male, who, with a large-caliber firearm, forced her and Olgin to walk to a grassy area to be shot and left for dead.CeCe McDonaldLGBTQ youth face homelessness, bullying, harassment, violence and death at the hands of haters and bigots at astronomical rates. Some are driven to suicide. And when someone dares to fight back — like CeCe McDonald, a young African-American transgender woman in Minneapolis — more often than not it is THEY who suffer the consequences, not their tormentors. McDonald was recently unjustly sentenced to more than three years in prison for defending herself against a violent, racist, anti-trans attack.The ruling class’s ideas of hate and division keep the rich laughing all the way to the bank. They can get away with lowered wages for everybody and put blame for society’s ills on everyone but themselves. Is it any wonder that misguided, hateful individuals feel emboldened to carry out heinous acts?The 1%’s system of capitalism and exploitation might come to an end if these ideas were challenged in a mass way, and the 99% united for a mighty struggle to overturn this rotten system, which is run for profit and not for people.In the meantime, every act of solidarity and compassion by the 99% strengthens our movement and helps lead inexorably to the day when the ideas of the ruling class will be the ideas of the multinational, multigendered, multisexuality majority of working-class humanity.Justice for Mollie Olgin and Mary Chapa! Free CeCe McDonald! An injury to one is an injury to all.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Then his photo with the words “Attention, traitor!” was circulated amid mounting tension a few days later. This is not the first time the 31-year-old journalist has been threatened. The news site he has been running for the past 10 years, Novosti Donbasa, covers regional corruption, power struggles and abuse of authority. Since the summer of 2013, he has been using his Donetskaya Pravda project to go further, investigating local government spending, public bidding and conflicts of public and private interest. Shortly after the project was launched, he and his colleagues began being the targets of close surveillance, threats and strange warnings – incidents not unlike what he experienced him 2011, when his apartment was set on fire by someone who blocked his exit and left a wreath at the door.

The lending giant is reducing staff after new loan production fell short of internal forecasts.In a report by Bloomberg, affected employees were told Wednesday that workers involved in processing home loans would be let go. California locations that will lose workers include an office in Concord; an office in Pasadena will be shutdown entirely.Terminations are effective immediately, and employees will receive salaries for 2 months and be eligible for severance pay, said sources familiar with the proceedings.”These notifications have been ongoing and reflect our previously announced efforts to reduce our size, resolve legacy issues and simplify our company,” said Dan Frahm, a spokesman for Bank of America. The lender is still hiring in non-mortgage areas, and some employees will find jobs in other parts of the firm, he said.This is the fourth time in a year that Bank of America has reduced personnel amid reduced demand for home loans. The firm cut 3,000 employees involved in making home loans in the last quarter of 2013. Other offices closed this year include Las Vegas, Nevada and St. Charles, Missouri.Retail originations sank 49 percent to $11.6 billion in the fourth quarter, said CFO Bruce Thompson on January, 15.Bank of America employed about 242,000 people as of December 31, 2013.

The Public Works Department has more than three dozen workers who are capable of plowing snow for multiple shifts. They are the best Public Works crew in the metropolitan area. When the snow arrives, we can stagger their hours, so that we can assign workers to plowing around the clock. We have some smaller salting trucks available to respond to such emergencies as water main breaks. It is important to respond to water-related emergencies in freezing temperatures before they become major.There are some important things that the public can do to help us in the winter. Please do not double-park, because double-parked cars can prevent emergency vehicles from getting down our streets. Please do not throw shoveled snow onto the streets, because that undoes the work of our plows. If you have elderly or disabled neighbors, please do what you can to help shovel their sidewalks. If there is a fire hydrant in front of your building, we would appreciate your help removing the snow from around it. If you have a corner property, we would welcome your assistance in clearing the walkway of snow at the crosswalk. We urge all property owners to follow the municipal ordinance that requires the removal of snow within 48 hours of the snowfall. If you are unable to remove ice from the sidewalk, you have an obligation to sand it or salt it.The Bayonne Office of Emergency Management (OEM) advises all residents to follow the Fire Chief’s safety tips, including never to use power strips or extension cords with space heaters. We also want to remind residents to enroll in the City of Bayonne SwiftReach911 system. This will enable you to get important information via robocall and text messages (enable SMS message feature for texts). We use Swift911, the City website, Facebook, and Twitter to help keep our residents informed.Thanks in advance for working with the City of Bayonne to help get us all safely through the upcoming winter. × The official start of winter is just a month away. It is a good time to look at what the City of Bayonne has done to get ready for it.We have more than two dozen plows that can work on all kinds of streets. The City of Bayonne already has a full supply of salt on hand for our salt trucks. We will have access to additional salt as needed.
