The silence in Apopka is deafening

first_img Dat Poe Reply Please enter your name here “Apopka should take advantage of its active, vocal citizenry and create ways to work together. However, the coming together cannot be done in a vacuum, but rather must occur in an open, inviting manner that allows everyone to have functional input.”-Greg JacksonWith all of that said, the problem is this: Apopkans are not talking to each other. People from the community have no idea that community redevelopment agency funding is available to improve living conditions, as well as promote business opportunities to become sustainable, so they say nothing. Persons with a thorough understanding of the issues and how community redevelopment agency funding may be used to improve underserved communities are not being brought to the table to speak on the issues, so in effect they say nothing. The administration of the City has its own ideas of how community redevelopment agency funding should be used, so it says nothing. Organizations that are well aware of the scrutiny surrounding community redevelopment agency funding being used in ways that do not meet legislative intent say nothing. So, as you can probably tell by now, the problem with Apopka is that when no one says anything, no one is talking. This breakdown or lack of communication by key members of the community, government, and business prevent the formulation of collaborative efforts and ideas to better the City. Apopka is not Orlando, so opportunities to engage the community are much more plausible; at least until 2037 (refer to my previous article, “All that Glitters”).Apopka should take advantage of its active, vocal citizenry and create ways to work together. However, the coming together cannot be done in a vacuum, but rather must occur in an open, inviting manner that allows everyone to have functional input. As an example, I recall that members of the Apopka Task Force on Violence, a community-driven group, was finally asked to present its findings to the City Commission. At the conclusion of the presentation, despite some differences, there appeared to be a door opened by the City to further the discussion on ways to work together to improve the community. However, since that time nothing has happened to facilitate that opportunity to work together. When leaders (political, community, business, etc.) play the game of “I-ain’t-talking-to-that-person” or “I-don’t-like-that person” or “my-idea-is-better-than-yours,” lines of communication are severed and the community fails; or in this case, certain portions of the community continue to be ignored. But, now that I have shared with you what I believe is the problem with Apopka, I must now share my greatest fear . . . no one is listening – in my humble opinion.Greg Jackson is a former Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida, veteran, current Orange County District 2 Representative on the Board of Zoning Adjustments, and General Counsel for the Community Redevelopment Agency. He has been an active member of the Central Florida community for nearly 20 years. In 2016, he was a candidate for the Florida House District 45 seat.

Very Good mr Jackson! Can you hear me now?OpinionBy Greg Jackson, Esq.Greg JacksonThis past Sunday morning, while drinking my weekly dose of coffee, it finally hit; I know what the problem is with Apopka. While I know many of you will find my statement to be presumptuous and possibly arrogant, allow me to explain before you start to disagree.It should come as no surprise to anyone with a pulse that Apopka has an issue with the allocation of resources to various underserved areas within its boundaries. As businesses come to the city and rooftops explode from the ground, not all parts of Apopka benefit from such growth, especially when resources are diverted from the very community that could help the most. The disparity of resources has perpetuated a disturbing trend that is evidenced by the lack of economic development, which leads to poor living conditions and the lack of employment opportunities for those residing within the underserved areas. Oddly enough, through community redevelopment efforts and funding, the resources that could assist with improving the conditions noted herein are available. Even more interesting, the resources I speak of are statutorily required to go towards such conditions and communities to address “slum” and “blight.” But, for some reason, no action is taken to address what everyone knows and sees as an issue.

On a 92 are big estate on the northern rim of the Black Forest two residential houses and a pool came into being within a landscape garden. On the exposed topography located on a slight slope, different topologies are explored. The inhabited and uninhabited buildings, gardens of different sizes provide the ground for the quest of classical and unknown geometric topologies. The calm search for the „quinta essentia“ of an elegant classical form leads from the tetrahedron to the artificial landscape. A classical form which does not deny its revolutionary roots and formulates a poetic science.

By leading a run through its middle, the house was opened to the landscape. Phase Two >> New Construction ‘Hexahedron’ Save this picture!© Brigida Gonzalez„Matter desires form“ Save this picture!© Brigida Gonzalezafter Aristotle Save this picture!© Brigida GonzalezThe new construction is an exact and slightly raised hexahedron. The external leafs, made of exposed concrete, shape with regular form ties the raised cube. The rigorous structure on the outside with radical ramps, batters and graded terraces forms the starting point of the estate. The wild landscape of the Black Forest is artificially enclosed. Along the 250 m long axis of summer solstice the artificial landscape frees itself to a natural and wild habitat. Save this picture!© Brigida GonzalezIn the playful interior of the hexahedron low ceilings alternate with two-story high ceilings. Joiner’s work on a small personal scale creates retreats and dens in the continuous space which spans over five stories. For example, a reading desk within the library stacks, an integrated fireside bench, a recessed seating within the shower up to a meditative dark 8 Tatami mats room. Extensive joiner’s works were realized as an integral part throughout the building. Straight and coiled stairways lead from the basement to the upper observatory terrace in a smooth round choreography. On his path the visitor takes the passage along two-story high minimal windows and apertures as high as the building. Through these openings the spaces are exposed to bright daylight. Wood from a 200 years old oak cut down by a stroke of lightning, local sandstone from Maulbronn and other locally won materials were used for the interior works. Artificial and natural lightings stage interior and exterior spaces. Energy concept: The high energy efficiency is accomplished by an impermeability concept, highly effective thermal insulation, and a geothermal energy source with a recuperator combined with a floor heating system. The windows have highly insulated double panes with warm edge, fiberglass frames and minimal aluminium frames. Passive solar energy is a part of the energy concept.

Water runs through the topography and maintains ponds and basins. The rising sun shines along the 250 m axis through the whole estate on the date of summer solstice. A variety of follies define places in the philosophical landscape: A falsification swing, a romantic relict as a goose shed, a Tetrahedron fireplace, the Octrahedron, a teahouse made from Corten Steel, which defines a numerical microcosm in the wilderness.Project gallerySee allShow lessGraz Architecture Diploma Award 2009 WinnersArticlesAD Photographers: Leonardo FinottiArticles Share Year:  2009 Save this picture!© Brigida Gonzalez+ 24 Share Germany CopyAbout this officeOffice for Architecture StockerOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesGermanyPublished on March 26, 2010Cite: “Topoi Engelsbrand / Office for Architecture Stocker” 26 Mar 2010.

‘Muzzling Mumia’ law struck down

first_imgMumia Abu-JamalPhiladelphia — Efforts to uphold state-sanctioned muzzling of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal and other prisoners seeking to speak out about their cases or any other issue were delivered a significant setback on April 28. Christopher Connor, chief judge for the federal court of the Middle District of Pennsylvania, ruled in favor of the plaintiffs who held that the so-called Revictimization Relief Act was unconstitutional.More commonly referred to as the “Mumia Muzzling Act,” versions of the law were quickly passed by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and the Senate last Oct. 22. Legislators were acting under pressure from the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police, who had failed in their efforts to prevent Abu-Jamal from delivering a commencement address to Goddard College students on Oct. 5.In one of his last actions before Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett was defeated in his bid for a second term, he signed the act in an elaborate ceremony at 13th and Locust streets in Philadelphia, scene of the 1981 shooting death of police officer Daniel Faulkner. While maintaining his innocence, Abu-Jamal was sentenced in 1982 to death row for Faulkner’s murder until a global movement succeeded in releasing him to the general prison population in 2011.Acting to preempt any implementation of the reactionary law that would negatively impact the plaintiffs, their attorneys appealed the law shortly after its passage. Plaintiffs included the Pennsylvania Prison Society, Prison Legal News, Abu-Jamal, other current or former prisoners and several media organizations.The case was argued before Judge Connor on March 30 by attorneys David M. Shapiro, from the Roderick and Solange MacArthur Justice Center of Northwestern University Law School, and Eli Segal, on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union.In delivering his decision Connor stated, “The court concludes that the challenged statute betrays several constitutional requirements; the enactment is unlawfully purposed, vaguely executed, and patently overbroad in scope.” He further held that the law is “manifestly unconstitutional, both facially and as applied to plaintiffs” and in violation of the First and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.The First Amendment prohibits making any law abridging the freedom of speech, while also protecting freedom of the press. Under the act, news outlets could be sued if they aired or quoted commentary from prisoners. The Fifth Amendment outlines constitutional limits on police procedure and due process of law.Over 20 years ago the U.S. Supreme Court also held that restricting free expression of prisoners in order to protect crime victims from mental anguish was unconstitutional. Connor also noted that the law was so indefensible that Pennsylvania’s attorney general had to distort its legislative intent to argue that it conformed to constitutional precedent.Connor concluded his opinion by noting that the way to counter speech one disagrees with is by speech, not repressive laws. Apparently this message was lost on supporters of the defeated law, who are already talking about filing an appeal.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Anna Chambers says “NO” to NYPD rapists

first_imgIn September 2017, 18-year-old Anna Chambers was falsely detained and raped by two members of the New York Police Department in the back of a van in a Chipotle parking lot in South Brooklyn. While she was stumbling home, a friend collected her off the street and took her to the hospital where she underwent the humiliation and trauma of providing evidence for a rape kit. Incontrovertible physical proof of her rape was gathered against the two rapists: Richard Hall and Edward Martins. Despite this, all charges of rape were dropped against these cops March 6 — a fresh outrage against women and girls delivered by the so-called justice system.The cops had pretended to arrest Chambers and had promised her they would let her go if she allowed herself to be raped by them. The only charges left standing against these brutal, dangerous men are taking bribes and official misconduct. As if Anna Chambers had not been a terrified 5-foot-2-inch, 90-pound teenager in handcuffs in the back of a police van, but rather a wily sorceress who seduced these upstanding citizens in an effort to corrupt their morality. This is how the defense painted it in public anyway, planting photos from her social media in the New York Post and other tabloids in an effort to say the clothing she wore, the poses she made, etc., somehow justified her being raped while in handcuffs by two grown men with guns.Cops murder with impunity in New York City. Eric Garner’s killer Daniel Pantaleo still collects more than $100,000 in salary per year while he remains in uniform. Now it seems the courts are sending the message that cops are able to rape with impunity as well. Anna Chambers refused plea deals because she wanted to see the NYPD on trial for rape, but the charges were dropped by the District Attorney’s office before a jury even had the chance to decide. Chambers wanted to come forward in the spirit of the #MeToo movement to give other women and girls the courage to step forward. Instead, the NYPD sent a powerful message to women and girls across New York: We will rape you, torture you, drag your name through the mud and get away with it if you dare to defend yourself publicly.Chambers possesses tremendous courage by speaking up, and her case helped pass a law in New York state that states the obvious — anyone in police custody cannot consent to sex with a police officer. In Anna’s case, she told cops “no,” but it didn’t matter. The armed guards of the state said she said “yes,” and that’s the story the state went with. But consent is not necessarily about whether or not a person says “yes.” It’s about understanding the power dynamics involved in a situation and whether or not the person has the ability to clearly say “no.” With the NYPD’s history of wanton murder, theft, violence and rape, there is no way for anyone, much less a petite teenager in handcuffs, to give a real “yes” to a cop.As Anna Chambers’ case moves into the civil trial phase, and as the cops threaten to bring charges against her, it is important for the public to stay aware and mobilized in defense of Anna and all survivors of rape.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Mortgage Delinquencies Experience Seasonal Rise in April

The 4.77 percent represented a total of 2.41 million single-family residential properties, while the increase of 1.46 percent represented a jump of about 35,000. Year-over-year, there was a decline of about 15 percent (about 406,000 properties) in the number of delinquent properties.Meanwhile, foreclosure inventory – the total number of mortgage loans in some state of foreclosure – continued its decline toward pre-crisis levels in April by falling 25.5 percent year-over-year down to 1.51 percent, about 764,000 properties. It is the lowest level for foreclosure inventory since January 2008 right at the beginning of the recession.Foreclosure starts totaled 73,500 for April, a decline of 22 percent from March and from 7 percent from April 2014. The monthly prepayment rate, which is generally a good indicator of refinance activity, were up by more than 60 percent year-over-year in April up to 1.39 percent despite a month-over-month decline of 14.5 percent.Foreclosure starts have totaled less than 100,000 every month since January 2014 but have largely been up and down from month-to-month in the last three years, according to Black Knight data. In January, they totaled 94,300; in February, the fell down to 79,700; in March, they rose back up to 94,100; and back down to 73,500 for April.Florida had the largest six-month rate of improvement for non-current loans among states in April with a 17.4 percent decline, according to Black Knight. Florida’s non-current loan rate of 8.40 percent for April was nearly two full percentage points ahead of the state with the second-largest six-month improvement (Illinois, which experienced a 15.14 percent decline down to 6.45 percent).
