The project of the rue Godefroy Cavaignac in Paris consisted in the rehabilitation of a building which did not meet hygiene and security standards into new social housing. The agency’s aim was to renew the image of the building in the street while responding to the requirements of the «patrimoine habitat environnement» certification. The project is largely based on the building extension, contemporary reinvention of the bow-window, inserted in the prolongation of the unfinished 19th century façade.

Adjoa AchiaaThis talk was given on Nov. 18 at the 2017 Workers World Party national conference in Newark, N.J.In the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s exposure as Hollywood cisgender scum who has sexually assaulted women for decades, victims have been speaking out about their experiences of sexual harassment and assault, noting the culture of silence and victim-blaming that forces many survivors to live in the shame of their trauma. This social media campaign has been seen as a rallying cry for feminists and the continuous work that must be done to fight toxic masculinity. But the unfortunate reality of the movement is that it has been a space for white women only.The #metoo campaign was started 10 years ago as a nonprofit by Tarana Burke, a Black woman wanting to support young women of color facing sexual trauma and harassment. As Burke noted once in an interview: “Sexual violence doesn’t see race or class, but the response to it does.” (vox.com, Oct. 28)What this current surge of mass disclosure has proven once again is that our society only cares about victims if they are rich and white. White privilege means that they can take a campaign created by a Black woman, whitewash the fuck out of it, and throw the voices of Black women and femmes away without remorse.Because what is continuously and intentionally left out, not only from this campaign, but all conversations around victimization, are the stories of Black and Brown, queer and trans, and the violence from white men, white women and white supremacy, and how all of this is inherently tied to capitalism. It is why these mainstream feminist movements are of no benefit to us. At its core, mainstream feminism is anti-Black, anti-queer and anti-trans because it relies on the same oppressive principles under capitalism in order to remain valid.We know this to be true when we look at the history of the “women’s movement.” The 1890s in the U.S. has been dubbed “the era of woman” and seen as a key time in defining the onset of the women’s movement. It was a time when middle-class white women were increasing their visibility in the public sphere to prove themselves capable of engaging in male-dominated spaces. They stood against social evolutionist theorists who maintained (straight, white, cisgender) manhood as superior.Those who supported the struggles of these white women (such as the women’s suffrage movement) often linked that work to an evolutionary progress that posited the colonial capitalist U.S. as superior to the “primitive” cultures of Asia and Africa. These feminists appealed to the white male ruling class in a way that necessarily rejected Blackness and queerness, through adhering to traditional gender norms as a way to “preserve the white race,” and through emphasizing white women’s differences from women of color in order to align themselves with white men.The placing of Black queer and trans femmes as everything that is “not white” is an ongoing product of slavery and colonialism we see to this day. As Black feminist thinker Patricia Hill Collins has said: “White women’s sexuality could not be constructed as it is without corresponding controlling images applied to U.S. Black women.” (“Black Feminist Thought,” 2002)I would add that this also applies to Black women in Africa and globally. We are, ultimately, not part of the category of “woman/ womanhood” and therefore unable to claim palpable narratives of women’s oppression because “woman” was never meant to include us. And so mainstream conversations and work around gender and sexual oppression are limited to the experiences of cisgender white women.For the past month and a half, Black and dark-skinned New York City strippers have been organizing a strike, speaking out against racism and colorism in the industry. Discrimination means dark-skinned Black women have had consistent difficulty getting or keeping jobs because of the systemic preference to hire white and Latinx dancers. Dark-skinned strippers are either not allowed to dance on high-earning nights, or barred from the VIP sections. Celebrity bartenders (often white or light-skinned and with body types not only unrealistic, but rooted in anti-Blackness) are brought into the clubs, earning their money on the backs of Black femmes and our labor.I just want to re-emphasize that this strike is not just an issue of stripper rights, or the conditions that sex workers face. It is specifically dark-skinned Black women and femmes fighting against the manifestations ofanti-Blackness in sex work. Our voices and our struggles are not part of mainstream feminist “the future is female” bullshit because at the same time that white women are speaking out against cisgender-hetero-patriarchal violence, they are benefitting from the oppression of Black femmes (especially those of us that are dark-skinned, trans and/or fat).What we need is a revolutionary socialist and revolutionary feminist movement that recognizes that the capitalist system encourages and benefits from every oppressive system. We must recognize that any form of work or activism that concedes to capitalist ideals, no matter how well-intentioned, “intersectional” or “radical” its claims, is fundamentally flawed.Liberation will never be allowed to flourish under this system because the survival of the capitalist patriarchy is dependent upon our oppression. Under revolutionary feminism and socialism, the future will be queer, trans and Black.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Two top strategies for your farm business plan Sponsored Content – Farm Credit Mid-America[acm-tag id=”pixel”]Fail to plan or plan to fail—or so the saying goes. Whether you’re just starting out or have a well-established farming operation, creating a business plan is one key to success.While taking the time to sketch out a business plan can seem tedious, there are significant benefits to having a thoughtful path forward for your farm. Preparing a plan helps you look beyond daily farm tasks to focus on your goals. It provides focus and direction, which will help your operation run more smoothly.Get it on paperMany farmers we talk with say they have business plans—but they haven’t found time to commit them to paper. Without a written plan, it’s easy to run off course.A written plan is even more important for businesses with multiple owners. It aids decision making and helps avoid conflicts. As you draft, evaluate and revise your business plan, be sure to include all owners in the process. This may lead to some uncomfortable conversations, but in the end will make the rest of your year—and your operation—much more productive.And, most important, a written plan increases the likelihood you will achieve your goals. The plan helps you envision your operation’s future, lay out sales and operational forecasts, and measure progress. Look at your business plan as a road map for your operation’s success.Keep it currentThe best business plans are continually revisited, revised and updated when changes occur in the operation or marketplace. Keep your goals and business plan in a visible place to remind you of where you’re going and what you’re working toward.Set aside time with your fellow owners to review the plan and make adjustments. This could be done on a quarterly or annual basis—just find a time that works and then stick to it.Getting started on a plan is often the hardest part. Begin with a simple plan that meets your immediate needs and build it from there. The best business plan is a continual work in progress and a plan for success.For additional financial tips, insights and perspectives, visit Farm Credit Mid-America Insights.For additional financial tips, insights and perspectives, visit Farm Credit Mid-America Insights.

The metro that they predict will see the highest home price appreciation is—no surprise—Seattle, Washington, with an estimated 11.1 percent increase. The Denver metro is a close second, with 10.3 percent increase home appreciation. VeroFORECAST lists population growth and low unemployment—Seattle boasts an unemployment rate of 3.7 percent, compared to the national average of 4.3 percent, and Denver’s rate is as low as 2.1 percent—as major contributing factors to the rapid rate home appreciation. However, home appreciation does have its downsid e for would-be homeowners in that inventory is way down. It is estimated that Seattle has about a 1.0 month supply of homes available at the current closing rate, and Denver doesn’t look much better, at a 1.1 month supply. “As job growth continues to drive migration to the top markets, we will continue to see tight home supplies, causing a heightened housing demand which as we know will cause home affordability to suffer in these areas,” said Eric Fox, VP of Statistical and Economic Modeling at Veros. Of the top 25 markets showing signs of increased home appreciation, 18 metros are located in western states, including Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Utah, and Idaho. Only five reside in Florida. Previously hot markets, such as Austin, Texas, are expected to cool. Austin once showed double digit appreciation, but now is only expected to appreciate at a rate of around 6 percent. Conversely, the Northeast shows the largest cluster of depreciating home values—New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia among the worst of the lot. The bottom 15 worst markets all show negative appreciation, while 15 to 25 show less than a 1 percent appreciation rate. VeroFORECAST contributes low and negative appreciation values to consistent population decline.
