Located on Christophe-Colomb Street in the Plateau Mont-Royal in Montreal, the existing building was originally a ‘cottage’ (word to describe a single family home) which had been converted into a duplex in the early 1970s. Ironically, because the original building dated back to the 1800s and did not align to the other buildings on the street, the renovation did not have to conform to the traditional morphology of the street.Save this picture!© Denis FarleyRecommended ProductsWoodStructureCraftEngineering – Architectural & FreeformWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsWoodLunawoodThermo Timber and Industrial ThermowoodThe intention was to create a very contemporary, yet contextual project within the historical Plateau district. In efforts to express the history of the original building, the fir structural components of the existing house walls were recycled as interior cladding on the lateral walls on all three floors. These wood elements were initially carefully removed, then scanned with a metal detector in order to locate and remove all nails. They were then sheared and finally reinstalled on the new walls.

The house consists on the ground floor of an open area with a double height living space facing the front garden, a dining space, and the kitchen at the back. The garage located behind the kitchen is accessed by the alley. The second floor, intended for the children, includes two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a play area overlooking the living room below. On the third floor, the master bedroom suite opens to a terrace which faces the Mont Royal as well as the front garden.Save this picture!© Denis FarleyProject gallerySee allShow lessMalaysia Pavilion for Shanghai World Expo 2010ArticlesLycee Jean Moulin / OFF ArchitectureArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/35194/4417-christophe-colomb-henri-cleinge Clipboard 4417 Christophe-Colomb / Henri Cleinge “COPY” Architects: Henri Cleinge Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Socialist methodology and the mass struggle: Lessons from Detroit and beyond

first_imgThe war machine and the financial institutions’ criminal policies are two sides of the same vicious system designed to disempower the masses and further the ruling class’s profit-making capacity. Here, we must interject revolutionary class politics into the mass struggle. Our work in this area has clarified a principled approach to a popular movement, as contrasted with an opportunistic one, as Lenin outlined in “What Is to Be Done?”An essential section of Lenin’s work on imperialism, which we studied in the Detroit branch’s Marxism classes, provides valuable insights into the character of exploitation on a grand scale. Lenin gives examples of the increasing concentration of industrial ownership and the eventual domination of manufacturing, real estate and global trade by banking firms. Today this phenomenon has become more pronounced and evident. Consequently, we must focus on finance capital to fight this exploitative system.‘The State and Revolution’Lenin’s important contribution, “The State and Revolution,” written just before the Bolsheviks’ seizure of power in 1917, discusses the political imperatives of state control by the proletariat. The capitalist state serves the interests of the monopolies and financial institutions. A revolutionary organization and movement must take control of the state apparatus to build a socialist society, paving the way toward communism.Lenin stresses: “[D]uring the transition from capitalism to communism suppression is still necessary, but it is now the suppression of the exploiting minority by the exploited majority. A special apparatus, a special machine for suppression, the ‘state,’ is still necessary, but this is now a transitional state. … [T]he suppression of the minority of exploiters by the majority of the wage slaves of yesterday is comparatively so easy, simple and natural a task that it will entail far less bloodshed than the suppression of the risings of slaves, serfs or wage-laborers, and it will cost mankind far less.“[I]t is compatible with the extension of democracy to such an overwhelming majority of the population that the need for a special machine of suppression will begin to disappear. …  [T]he people can suppress the exploiters even with a very simple ‘machine,’ almost without a ‘machine,’ without a special apparatus, by the simple organization of the armed people (such as the Soviets of Workers’ and Soldiers’ Deputies).”We must build a revolutionary organization of the workers and the oppressed to suppress the capitalists and imperialists. The Marxist-Leninist party, guided by scientific analysis of the conditions facing the exploited and oppressed, tutored in its experience of propagandistic and programmatic work deriving from the needs and aspirations of the proletariat, farmers and youth, is the only hope for the transformation of human society.After the Bolsheviks seized power in October 1917, amid the protracted armed struggle to defeat the counterrevolutionaries — a coalition of imperialist countries, monarchists, “socialist-revolutionaries” and Russian capitalists — Lenin reflected on the need to maintain the revolutionary party’s objectives. Even under the weight of threatening reversals of the socialist revolution’s gains, Lenin maintained his view of what is necessary to eradicate all forms of exploitation and oppression.In Lenin’s lecture on “The State,” delivered on July 11, 1919, at Sverdlov University, he observed: “Whatever guise a republic may assume, however democratic it may be, if it is a bourgeois republic, if it retains private ownership of the land and factories, and if private capital keeps the whole of society in wage-slavery … then this state is a machine for the suppression of some people by others.“And we shall place this machine in the hands of the class that is to overthrow the power of capital. We shall reject [views of] the state meaning universal equality — for that is a fraud: as long as there is exploitation there cannot be equality. The landowner cannot be the equal of the worker, or the hungry [person] the equal of the full [person]. This machine called the state, before which people bowed in superstitious awe, believing the old tales that it means popular rule, tales which the proletariat declares to be a bourgeois lie — this machine the proletariat will smash. So far we have deprived the capitalists of this machine and have taken it over. We shall use this machine, or bludgeon, to destroy all exploitation.“And when the possibility of exploitation no longer exists anywhere in the world, when there are no longer owners of land and owners of factories, and when there is no longer a situation in which some gorge while others starve, only when the possibility of this no longer exists shall we consign this machine to the scrap-heap. Then there will be no state and no exploitation.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Abayomi Azikiwe, Editor, Pan-African News WireThis year represents the centenary of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia — a monumental, cataclysmic, socially transformative occurrence which served as a political model for all peoples seeking to liberate themselves from capitalism and imperialism.As a group principally concerned with building a revolutionary political party of the working class and the nationally oppressed, we need to study V.I. Lenin’s ideological and organizational contributions.It is necessary to adopt a dialectical materialist approach to the struggle against exploitation and oppression and imperative to understand the nature of our enemy.Ultimately, the destruction of the world capitalist system is a prerequisite to the genuine emancipation of humanity. Socialism leading to a communist society provides the only hope for the realization of world peace, security and sustainability.Nonetheless, the freedom of the proletariat and oppressed nations will not be achieved spontaneously. Perhaps the Bolshevik Party’s most profound lesson is its emphasis on scientific organization based upon the principles of democratic centralism.These axioms are as relevant today as they were in 1903 when Lenin published his groundbreaking work, “What Is to Be Done?” In that period,  industrial capitalism was rapidly consolidating its exploitative productive processes. The emergence of the assembly line, mechanized agriculture, the rapacious mining of strategic minerals, oil drilling, international trade and shipping — along with the consolidation of finance and banking as the dominant economic force within global capitalism — shaped the character of the system we struggle against today. During World War I, Lenin defined global capitalism in his pioneering book, “Imperialism: The Highest Stage of Capitalism.”Leninism: A guide to building a revolutionary movementIn “What Is to Be Done?” Lenin told the socialist movement: “We shall never rid ourselves of this narrowness of our organizational activity until we rid ourselves of Economism (the narrow conception of Marxist theory and the role of Social-Democracy).  These attempts manifested themselves in a twofold direction.” Some said that the working masses have not “advanced the broad and militant political tasks which the revolutionaries are attempting to ‘impose’ on them; that they must … struggle for immediate political demands, to conduct ‘the economic struggle’ against the employers and the government. … Others … said that it is possible and necessary to ‘bring about a political revolution,’ but that this does not require building a strong organization of revolutionaries to train the proletariat in steadfast and stubborn struggle … [meaning] that we must organize a general strike, or … stimulate the … working-class movement by means of ‘excitative terror.’ [Of] both these trends, the opportunists and the revolutionists … neither understands our primary and imperative practical task to establish an organization of revolutionaries capable of lending energy, stability, and continuity to the political struggle.”Organizing in DetroitAs revolutionaries we have no other choice than to respond to capitalism’s continuing crises. Detroit was the birthplace of advanced industrial capitalism — so the city provides tremendous insights into the transformation of the exploitative system over the last decade and a half.In the fall of 2002, five months prior to the U.S.-led massive bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq, the Michigan Emergency Committee Against War & Injustice was formed. Just 16 months prior to the second intervention in Iraq, the U.S. targeted Afghanistan for occupation, which continues today, more than 16 years later.MECAWI’s slogan has been “Money for our cities, not for war.” This captures the direct link between the Pentagon budget and the burgeoning impoverishment of U.S. urban areas. MECAWI’s program has always been  clearly anti-imperialist, as distinct from being anti-interventionist. Our struggle against imperialism is informed by our unconditional support for the right of self-determination and national liberation of all oppressed peoples.One of MECAWI’s greatest achievements has been the founding of the annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day march and rally. We set out to reclaim Dr. King’s social justice and anti-war legacy, and rejected the false and distorted history of the Civil Rights Movement. We emphasized that movement’s progressive contributions to the struggles against racism and economic exploitation by emphasizing its merger with the struggle for Black Power, Black Liberation and solidarity with national liberation movements. January 15, 2018 will mark our 15th commemoration of Martin Luther King Day in Detroit.This manifestation resulted in an effective alliance with principled veterans of the Civil Rights and Black Power movements of the 1960s and 1970s. Moreover, subsequent generations of activists from the youth, labor, community and left sectors join together yearly to celebrate the gains of the struggle. They are inspired by the possibilities of future advances.Moratorium Now Coalition  The Moratorium Now Coalition to Stop Foreclosures, Evictions and Utility Shut-offs grew out of MECAWI’s work. It is not enough for revolutionaries to focus only on anti-imperialist work.  Detroit’s population is  82 percent African American.  It has been systematically impacted by the ravages of national oppression and super-exploitation, and constitutes an integral demographic within the oppressed African nation in the U.S. empire.Detroit changed from being a center of African-American working-class politics, social activity and national culture into being a city that illustrates capitalism’s decline. It requires a Leninist party to consistently intervene in the mass struggle.This is why we have organized around the housing crisis for more than a decade. We demanded a moratorium on all foreclosures and evictions, and say housing is a fundamental human right of working people. We reject the notion that only certain people deserve quality housing, education, water and utility services, and environmental sustainability. All oppressed people must be free from the tyranny of the racist capitalist state and police terrorism.Our work on housing led us to defend municipal retirees from the pseudo-legalized theft of pension and health care benefits, privatization of public resources and erosion of bourgeois democratic rights. These rights — gained through decades of civil rights and labor campaigns — are the property of the working class and the oppressed. Bourgeois democratic rights are being reversed as a byproduct of capitalism’s crises.last_img read more

Protest of ICE’s crimes

first_imgThe latest in ongoing demonstrations at the proposed Houston Immigration and Customs Enforcement holding facility for ­unaccompanied minors was held Aug. 11. (It’s ironically located on “Emancipation Avenue” — recently renamed after a community struggle to change it from the name of a Confederate commander.) The highlight of the protest was wrapping the corner property in yellow “crime scene” tape.Speakers explained that since the site was being repurposed for the crime of imprisoning children — that being a crime against humanity — it was appropriate to let the public know what was planned for the place. Regular demonstrations are also being held at the wealthy neighborhood home of the real estate magnate who owns the property.Many demonstrators spoke of their horror in hearing about the purpose of the proposed site when thinking about their own children being snatched from them and herded into such a place. Tania Sediqi, speaking for the FIRE (Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere) coalition, reminded the gathering that the im/migration crisis is global and ongoing. She said that even though she is U.S.-born, she considers herself a “third-generation immigrant” since her grandparents were torn from their ancestral home in India and forced into the newly formed nation of Pakistan, from which her parents migrated to the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Seed Consultants 4/5/2013 Weekly Comments with Gary Wilhelmi

first_img Seed Consultants 4/5/2013 Weekly Comments with Gary Wilhelmi Home Indiana Agriculture News Seed Consultants 4/5/2013 Weekly Comments with Gary Wilhelmi Only 88,000 new jobs generated versus a hoped for 200,000. Dow off 160 points early Friday. NADAQ was off 49 and S&P 19. Labor participation is at a 35 year low. A weak ADP jobs report, 50,000 layoffs in March and rising jobless claims were the precursorsDAX and FTSE off 2% near their 10:30 close Friday. Japan doubled their stimulus efforts, and that knocked the props out, under the Yen. At $ .96 to the dollar and the yen has had a two year low at 80.The Fed is more likely to stick with their bond buying stimulus, although there is a split opinion on strategy within the Fed governors. The ECB will continue its monetary policy, but their results have not added up too much.WTI crude dropped this past week and that erodes bio fuel demand.North Korea has been rattling its nuclear sword, which is not unusual, but more threatening. You have to wonder what is going on domestically. China has barred North Korean immigration, and that is understandable as they do not need more unproductive poor people. China has support of North Korea is a persistent thorn in our side. Limited flair ups are likely, as North Korea must keep their population engaged.The Mid East remains a diplomatic mess with more troubled balls in the air then we can juggle.It has been a tough few weeks in the grain and soybean markets following the bearish stocks report. Corn carry over, which will be reported in next Wednesday’s S/D report is expected at 850-900 million bushels, up from 600 million, and new crop weather allowing, could be 2 billion. Let me remind you, two-thirds of the Corn Belt remains to dry. It would take a few years of above average rain to restore our depleted sub soil moisture. Record corn acres are anticipated, and we get enough top dressing the crop could total 14 billion bushels. Currently, showers are predicted in parts of the northern Corn Belt, so watch how much and where it falls this weekend. December corn has a potential trading range of $4.50-$8.50.South American soybeans supplies of great proportion, are moving out of Brazilian ports and so China will normally turn their attention in that direction. Bird flu in China has caused some human deaths and the culling of birds, and has also reduced bird feed demand.China bought some wheat last week, but it is not likely, the dawning of a new age.Export sales were light in wheat, fair on corn and soybeans to China are normally receding.Volume of commodity trade had been quite light. Watch CME group stock value at $ 59, as it reflects trading volume and the recent low has been $ 50. General risk aversion is occurring in all markets. It is also notable that meats and grains are near their lows and short covering is always possible, especially in grains and oilseeds if the drought persists.Meat demand is lackluster and threatening to get worse if the economy can not expand quicker. I know this is an old tune, but it dominates the juke box. The strong dollar also shaves import buying power. Support under June cattle is at $120 and June hogs at $88. Talk about grilling season is premature, and normally is not that impactful.And in conclusion, the incorrigible bulls fought their back to just a 42 point loss on the Dow and the NASDAQ closed over its 3200 support level.

In addition to contributing to DSNews.com, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news. About Author: Tory Barringer Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Luxembourg-based mortgage servicer Altisource Portfolio Solutions is cutting more than 800 jobs both overseas and at home in the wake of what was a bumpy year for the company.The move was announced in a conference call with investors on Friday that saw Altisource management working to reassure shareholders who have seen their stock drop more than 80 percent in the last year.In the call, CFO Michelle Esterman said the layoffs reflect the company’s need to realign its expenses as Ocwen Financial Corp.—Altisource’s biggest customer since it spun off in 2009—faces roadblocks to its own growth.Much of Altisource’s struggle in 2014 can be traced to its close relationship with Ocwen, which was dealt blow after blow throughout the year by state and federal financial regulators, who cited concerns stemming from consumer complaints.The hits continued earlier this month, when news broke that Ocwen may see its mortgage license suspended in California after it allegedly failed to comply with requests for loan documents from the state’s Department of Business Oversight. (In the call with investors, Altisource CEO William Shepro said the chances of Ocwen losing its license are very low, though he wouldn’t say more on the topic.)A spokesperson for Altisource confirmed the layoffs, and media outlets in Boston and India have reported news of local offices cutting staff.Altisource offered the following statement:”We have been focused on diversifying our revenue sources and expanding our business to appeal to a broader customer set for several quarters, including the launch of new products and multiple strategic acquisitions that position us for the future. After a comprehensive process to evaluate the most effective way to pursue continued expansion in light of changing market conditions, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to realign our employee base with the growth opportunities in front of Altisource.

The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Home / Daily Dose / FHFA: Solving Complications in Mortgage English Proficiency Tagged with: Census Bureau Fannie Mae Federal Housing Finance Agency FHFA Freddie Mac Previous: CBCInnovis Partners with LexisNexis Next: Southern Cities on the Rise About Author: Brianna Gilpin The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a Request for Input (RFI) Thursday for problems qualified Limited English Proficiency (LEP) borrowers face during the mortgage life cycle process. Per FHFA’s 2017 Scorecard for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Common Securitization Solutions, the Enterprises must identify major challenges for LEP borrowers in accessing mortgage credit, analyzing potential solutions, and developing a multiyear plan appropriate for the Enterprises to support improved access.FHFA looks to learn more about the procedures and tools that loan originators, servicers, and other parties in the mortgage lending process currently utilize to assist LEP borrowers through this RFI. They would like to identify the existing requirements, including laws and regulations that guide practices for interacting with LEP borrowers and to better understand the challenges in effectively serving this population.The FHFA reported that the number of LEP individuals in the United States has significantly increased over the past few decades. According to the most recent American Community Survey, 9 percent, or 25 million individuals in the U.S. are considered LEP. Among those, 64 percent speak Spanish, 7 percent speak Chinese, 3 percent speak Vietnamese, 2 percent speak Korean, 2 percent speak Tagalog, 2 percent speak Russian. By 2060, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2014 national projections, the share of the population that is foreign born will grow to 19 percent from approximately 13 percent currently. Along with that, the amount of mortgage borrowers should increase, as well.Though the Enterprises already offer information and translated documents, primarily Spanish, on their prospective websites, the FHFA continues to hear from stakeholders that LEP negatively impacts access to credit. Qualified borrowers may avoid applying for a mortgage due to language barrier concerns. Conversely, they may rely too heavily on others that are not as familiar with the mortgage process increasing their risk of being steered into a predatory loan and in turn, having difficulty navigating possible loss mitigation options if they fail to pay their mortgage.Input should be submitted electronically or via email by July 10, 2017.
