A historic Cardiff city center building, currently run as a distinctive youth hostel on bustling St Mary’s Street in Cardiff city center, is going under the hammer with an indicative price of £ 450,000.

The five-story freehold property called Ms Potts is, according to the auction house selling the building, an investment opportunity in development in the heart of the capital, located on St Mary Street.

Before even entering the property to discover the potential, the exterior of this gem of a building is instantly recognizable and engaging.

The building has a distinctive red brick and terracotta facade that includes mullioned and transom windows in each bay on the first and second floors.

Inside, look past the fixtures and fittings that make this building a place to rest on a budget but in a lovely setting, and you’ll see examples of fancy ceiling plaster, decorative wall tiles, cornices, wooden floors, the original staircase and, under the cladding, probably some marble columns.

According to the British Listed Buildings website, the five-story property was built in the late 19th century by renowned architect Alfred Waterhouse as offices for Prudential Assurance Company, a smaller version of its offices for Prudential in London and Liverpool. .

The building was Grade II listed by Cadw in May 1975, updated in April 1999.

The list is attributed primarily because it is “a rare example in Wales of the work of this important architect’s office”.

But it’s also mentioned on the list that the building is part of the group’s value along with the surrounding decorative period properties that provide a unique street scene to this historic downtown road.

Throughout its history, and more recently, the building was the Cardiff County Council Housing Support Center, with volunteer community service offices on the top floor.

Currently the building is occupied by Mrs Potts’ backpackers, but a future new chapter for this address seems likely to be written, with the property up for auction with a guide price of £ 450,000 and up.

Huw Edwards, head of auctions at Seel & Co and auctioneer selling the historic building, said: “Ms. Potts could easily be reopened or potentially re-rented in her current layout and use.

Thiruvananthapuram: The secretariat of the Legislative Assembly has invited builders, individuals and institutions to express their interest in offering 2BHK and 3BHK furnished apartments for 18 deputies, as part of the liberation of the Pamba block from the MLA hostel which will soon be demolished and rebuilt.
The apartment complex is to be located within a five kilometer radius of the Legislative Assembly building, and the accommodation period will be two years.
The Pamba block of the MLA hostel is currently in poor condition and in need of redevelopment.
The secretariat of the legislative assembly has set a set of conditions in the notification of expressions of interest. It states that all rooms must be fully furnished and that visitors must be allowed to enter the apartment complex. Rest rooms for meeting staff and security personnel deployed to serve Members in the apartment complex should be provided. The secretariat of the assembly will take care of the rent, water and electricity charges.
The provision of maintenance fee payment is not mentioned in the EoIs notification. Given the high rents in the areas around the assembly complex, the authorities will have to shell out a significant sum for a period of two years. Officials said PWD’s drawings for the reconstruction of the Pamba block have been completed and a quote is being prepared for the reconstruction work.
As per the EoI notification, each apartment must have two en-suite bathrooms, an office, a dining room, a kitchen and a shared bathroom.

Reviews are a great starting point when thinking about booking a hotel, and sites like TripAdvisor can make it easier for you to decide where to stay.

Cork Port Information

It is one of the largest natural harbors in the world – and those who live near Cork Harbor insist that it is also one of the most interesting.

It was the last stop for the most famous ocean liner in history, the Titanic, but it has been transformed into a center for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.

The port has been a working port and a strategic defensive hub for centuries, and it has been one of Ireland’s main employment hubs since the early 1900s. Traditional heavy industries have declined since the end 20th century, with the closure of Irish Steel at Haulbowline and shipbuilding at Verolme. It still has a major and strategic importance in the production, transport and refining of energy.

Giraffes roam its coastline, where tens of thousands of men and women have left Ireland, most never to return. The harbor is home to the world’s oldest yacht club and the Irish Navy.

This deep waterway has also become a vital cog in the Irish economy.

The “Afloat.ie Cork Harbor Page” is not a page of history, nor a hot topic. It is simply an exploration of this famous waterway, its color and its characters.

Cork Harbor Festival

From Ocean to City – An Rás Mór and the Port of Cork Open Day previously existed as two popular one-day events located at different times in Cork’s annual maritime calendar. The two event committees recognized the synergy between the two events and began to work together and share resources. In 2015, the Cork Harbor Festival was launched. The festival was designed on the principle of the open day, with Ocean to City – An Ras Mór as the flagship event.

Now in its sixth year, the festival has grown steadily. Although the 2020 physical festival has been canceled due to Covid-19, the event normally features nine festival days starting in the first week of June. It is full of events; all of this has been made possible through collaboration with over 50 different event partners in Cork City, as well as 15 towns and villages along Cork Port. The program grows year after year and showcases Ireland’s rich maritime and cultural heritage as well as water and land activities, with Ocean to City – An Rás Mór at the heart of the festival.

Set in the center of Ireland’s maritime paradise and at the gateway to Ireland’s Ancient East and the Wild Atlantic Way, Cork is perfectly positioned to host Ireland’s largest and most captivating harbor festival.

The Cork Harbor Festival Committee includes representatives from Cork City Council, Cork County Council, Cork Harbor, UCC MaREI, RCYC, Cobh & Harbor Chamber and Meitheal Mara.

The police undercover operation that resulted in the death of terrorist Sudesh Amman in broad daylight after engaging in a one-minute knife rampage “could not have been more effective,” said declared a senior officer.

The Strategic Firearms Commander (SFC), a superintendent responsible for firearms strategy on the day Amman, 20, struck, said the tactics used at the time were the right course of action.

It also emerged that the operation’s tactical firearms (TFC) commander was not informed that Amman had left his probation hostel and was spotted with a white JD gym bag slung over his chest. , about half an hour before it hits.

The bag was used to conceal a fake suicide belt, made from items he bought in Poundland two days earlier.

Amman was under armed 24-hour surveillance when he stole a kitchen knife from a store in Streatham High Road, south London, and began stabbing random members of the public shortly before 2 p.m. on Sunday 2 February 2020.

Both victims survived.

The SFC, known only as BX88 to protect its identity, defended police actions during the Amman investigation on Monday.

He said: “In an armed operation one person lost his life and others were injured.

“I have thought about it a lot and I have to say that I have reviewed this in my head from a personal point of view, I do not see how we could have achieved a more effective result with the circumstances presented to us.

“I know it sounds hard because Amman lost his life.

“We were responding to his actions, and his actions were trying to kill people. “

It comes after the senior officer investigating Amman at the time denied suggestions by his family’s lawyer that the undercover operation was a “massive failure.”

It further emerged on Monday that the TFC, known only as DS51, had not been made aware of Poundland’s purchases, nor informed that Amman had left his hostel or demonstrated a anti-surveillance behavior.

Jonathan Hough QC, lawyer for the investigation, said the day’s logs showed that an officer attempted to contact DS51 within minutes of leaving Amman from her hostel, but they were unable to reach her and therefore left a voicemail message.

DS51 said she was probably speaking to officers during a second unrelated operation at the time, adding: “I never had a missed call or voicemail.”

She said she would have liked “a little more context” on the gym bag around Amman’s torso, but said it was “not unusual” to see young people in London carrying the gym bag. this way in London.

DS51 said she would have questioned surveillance officers about Amman’s presentation had she known he walked into a store known to sell knives and was “totally in disbelief” when she found out. that Amman was killed after attacking members of the public.

She said: “I was not aware when he left the approved premises.

“I was shocked that he stabbed members of the public and then was shot by police.”

The investigation had previously learned how Amman was considered “one of the most dangerous people” that police and MI5 teams had investigated, and that police feared an attack would occur “when, not if. »During discussions two weeks before his release.

He was automatically released from Belmarsh prison on January 23, halfway through a 40-month sentence for obtaining and disseminating terrorist material.

This despite police calls for the governor to detain Amman longer after intelligence suggested he maintained an extremist mindset, that he wanted to carry out a knife attack in the future and that he had loaned out allegiance to the head of the so-called Islamic State.

Amman, originally from Coventry and of Sri Lankan descent, but who was previously from Harrow in north-west London, spent his short spell after being released from custody living in a bail house in Streatham, during which undercover police teams were watching him commented on his “disturbing” behavior.

The investigation is continuing.

Ahead of the governor election on November 6, 2021, Social Democratic Party flagship Dr Obinna Chukwudum Uzoh set out a new vision to transform Anambra state from a land of human giants and infrastructure in a modern state, Louis Achi writes

Undoubtedly, Anambra State is a land of icons – fueled by faith as well as fanatic dreamers in various fields of human endeavor. This particular defining characteristic will shape the high-octane battle for the soul of the state in the November 6 gubernatorial election.

Among the mass of candidates for the rental rights of Awka Government House, in November 2021, the leading figure of the lawyer, astute business mogul, notable politician, renowned philanthropist and chairman of the Gocuz group, Dr. Obinna Chukwudum Uzoh , occupies an important place – with good reason.

No less a child of providence who exerts an influence with seductive humility and exemplary focus, Dr. Uzoh has demonstrated with his life trajectory that spirituality, business, philanthropy and politics fundamentally address the transformation of the human condition. for real. To this day, he shamelessly maintains this unique philosophy and foundation.

Apostle of the “policy without bitterness” and the policy of consultation and accommodation, Uzoh’s campaign slogan is: Restoration, reconstruction and rehabilitation of Anambra State.

Uzoh, who ran for the seat of governor of Anambra state in 2003, has since been actively involved in politics. Today, with his eyes riveted on the immediate future of his state, Uzoh offers an alternative vision of governance on how to transform his home state into a model of 21st century development and technology to be cloned at a time. for his region and his country. Unsurprisingly, his vision draws its depth, energy and blueprint from more than three decades of entrepreneurial excellence, political sagacity and impactful interventions in various humanitarian theaters.

In his words: “My parents are widely recognized for their industry, their courage and their ingenuity. These qualities have enabled us to survive as a people in the face of daunting existential challenges. Recall that when it was created on August 27, 1991 by the regime of General Ibrahim Babangida, Ndi-Anambra had a literacy rate of over 75% and had extraordinary human and material resources. These attributes are to be given new direction, new discipline and new energy. God gave me the vision to do this.

According to Uzoh, “I have identified 10 key areas that deserve full attention to transform the state. These include security, infrastructure development which is the foundation of transformational industrialization and will support Nnewi, Onitsha and Awka as critical technology hubs, a true agricultural revolution. By deploying transparent, judicious and efficient management of resources, I will empower our employees to acquire skills, integrate our justice system, intensify sport, provide microfinance to SMEs and pursue a program of integrated development that should fundamentally be a game-changer in Anambra State.

And more… “I do not lightly challenge the 2021 governorate elections in my state. It was the product of deep introspection and broad consultation. I believe that at this time in our national history and the rapid changes affecting both the continental and international arena, Anambra needs a deep but tempered personality and thinker to guide her journey. Let me share this with you and many may not know it. The fate of Anambra State has fundamental links with the fate of Ndigbo and Nigeria in general.

Despite a very difficult personal journey, Uzoh skillfully created and nurtured the Gocuz Group of Companies – a very successful conglomerate comprising Gocuz Oil Services, Gocuz Engineering, Gocuz Chambers, Gocuz Construction, Gocuz Finance & Security and Gocuz Farms Limited.

Uzoh is the only pontifical knight (Knight of Saint Gregory the Great) in the race for governor, in a highly religious community. It should be noted that the dominant churches in Anambra State are the Catholic and Anglican churches. Significantly, of all the aspirants to the post of governor of the state, he has been particularly successful for Catholics and Anglicans, as well as for other religious and non-religious organizations.

A few years ago, he donated to the Catholic Church a state-of-the-art 110-room student hostel located at the Holy Family Youth Village in Awka. This happened barely a year after the construction / single donation of an imposing church complex in Ihiala – the All Saints parish complex, in Umunnamehi, Ihiala, which was consecrated by the pontifical nuncio. in Nigeria.

Because of the high value it places on education, it has awarded scholarships to many students in elementary, secondary, educational colleges, polytechnics and universities across the country. It has also awarded special scholarships to natives of Anambra State in medicine, law, accountancy and engineering.

He constructed and donated a three-story building for Madonna University Law School in Okija, Anambra State; built, donated and renovated schools across the country, built and equipped several computer and science laboratories in secondary and tertiary institutions in Anambra State and distributed textbooks and teaching materials to schools in Anambra State .

He is also involved in the creation of small businesses for indigenous people in Anambra State and in the construction / rehabilitation of rural roads in the State. It has provided boreholes, rural electrification and donated transformers to towns and villages in Anambra State with financial and moral assistance to non-governmental organizations across the country. He also donated drugs for free medical procedures to St. Charles Borromeo Hospital in Onitsha, Anambra State.

He created a special fund to help pregnant women, widows, people with disabilities and people with heart, kidney, lung, vision and spinal cord problems. He has helped young traders, school leavers and graduates to set up their own businesses with a revolving loan and is involved in the development of sport by sponsoring local football competitions, athletic events.

In this context, it is therefore not surprising that Uzoh has received countless honors from a grateful society and that several respected personalities have testified to these unique interventions. According to the Archbishop of Onitsha, Monsignor (Dr.) Val M. Okeke, “I have followed closely the activities of Dr. Obinna Uzoh towards the less privileged and they are uplifting. He has helped many needy students with scholarships.

“He has built houses for the poor, hostels for students, churches for the faithful of different denominations and he identifies with the poor and the humble. He did not exclude the rich; his friendship crosses the poor and the rich. He identified with governments, states and the federal government. He’s a good man in every sense of the word.

For former Governor of Anambra State and former running mate in the 2019 election, Peter Obi, “Also remarkable is your spirit of philanthropy which has continued to earn you goodwill in the State of Anambra and beyond. You have also excelled in missionary work, contributing in many ways to the development of Christian youth, as you recently demonstrated by constructing and donating a multi-million naira hostel building to the Catholic Archdiocese. by Onitsha at the Holy Family Youth Center, Amansea. This gesture on your part is a challenge to other wealthy citizens of Anambra on how best to give back to society. “

It should be noted that any tale of Uzoh’s life story that excludes his extraordinary philanthropy fundamentally defeats the being and essence of the Ihiala-born big-hearted business mogul – and wait – an unusual philanthropist.

Unsurprisingly, Uzoh’s entrepreneurial shrewdness and his broad humanitarian vision, providing employment opportunities for thousands of Nigerians thanks to the diversity of his business conglomerate and his compelling philanthropic spirit that has had an impact. and raised many lives in his community, state, region and country, attracted countless accolades and awards from a grateful community.

Uzoh, born March 17, 1963, in the family of the late Chief and Chief (Mrs.) Obi Uzoh of Umunnamehi, Ihiala, Anambra State, enjoys education very much. This guided him to acquire academic laurels. He obtained a B.Sc (Business Administration), University of Lagos; M.Sc (Marketing), University of Lagos; LLB, University of Lagos; BL, Nigeria Law School and PhD (Economics) from Lagos State University. He is married to the love of his life, Chief Barr. (Mrs.) Henrietta Obinna Uzoh – a blessed union with seven children.

To accompany him in his quest to rule Anambra State, Uzoh has chosen a scientist as his running mate on the SDP platform. He is a doctor of human medicine and consulting family physician Uzochukwu Obiora Chira. Dr Chira hides a steely and severe inner discipline that has allowed him to access his current post behind an affable and courteous exterior.

Public administrator and development strategist, philanthropist and politician, Dr Chira brings to his political partnership with Uzoh a compelling youthful experience, dynamism and intellectual acumen – qualities certainly necessary for higher political responsibility on the horizon. . He is married with a son.

A personality who has envisioned a new direction for his state, Uzoh’s promising electoral choice as the next governor of Anambra state would indeed tacitly recognize the ability of highly focused individuals to change their society for the better.

Social Capacitor: Springvale Community Hub https://center-hostel.com/social-capacitor-springvale-community-hub/ https://center-hostel.com/social-capacitor-springvale-community-hub/#respond Tue, 03 Aug 2021 03:48:56 +0000 https://center-hostel.com/social-capacitor-springvale-community-hub/ Since the 1970s, Australian cities have struggled with their identity, wondering where their center – or heart – is.

Since the 1970s, Australian cities have struggled with their identity, wondering where their center – or heart – is. Is this core better understood in the capital’s concentrated business districts or in the sprawling suburbs that make up the majority of their area? Does it reside in its colonial occupation or in the waves of 20th century migrants who have followed one another since?

As a suburb 22 kilometers southeast of central Melbourne, Springvale represents a highly distributed city form, both in its physical form and in its social makeup. It is one of the most ethnically diverse places in Australia, with a huge percentage of its population coming from various countries in Southeast Asia.1 It is not by chance. The Enterprise Migrant Hostel opened there at the end of 1969, providing accommodation and settlement services to migrants and refugees. Between 1970 and 1992, the hostel welcomed more than 30,000 arrivals, many of them coming from Vietnam and Cambodia to escape the conflicts there. People stayed in the area after passing through the hostel, creating the communities that are evident today. Although the White Australia policy was only recently dismantled into law, the council has welcomed newcomers. Local temples were built and Springvale’s central shopping streets began to emerge.

The suburb saw some highlights during the 1970s. On the night of December 2, 1972, after being elected Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam held a press conference from the living room of his home – a relatively modest suburban home in Sydney’s western suburb designed by an architect from Cronulla. Whitlam’s Labor government represented a time of intense interest in shaping cities through decentralization policies and strategies while at the international level planners proposed satellite towns as a solution to the rapid urban growth of the baby boom. However, the momentum of this policy of expansion was brief; economic crises and the emergence of deregulation triggered the contraction of the manufacturing sector, which had boosted growth in the urban peripheries. Globalization had started to put pressure on factories and the same logic favored cities shaped by the free market over government planning. By 1981, Melbourne’s planning strategies shifted from satellite growth to reconsolidation.

Outside, multi-use fields, play areas and gardens invite the community to get involved.

Since then places like Springvale have been caught in a kind of metropolitan crossfire, with one architect after another mocking their presence, confusing aesthetic preferences with the ethics of how and where to live. These suburbs are dotted with design efforts that place the value of the suburb below that of the center. However, the new Springvale Community Hub in Lyon reverses this value and, rather than blurring the debate, gives it several sides. It is an architecture that both challenges and answers complex questions of identity.

Traditionally, public buildings have facades and facades; modernist objects generally claim their singularity. On the other hand, the Community Hub is an object with four distinct and deliberately articulated faces. A concave side bends and is reflected around beautiful river red gums, inspired by wood. Another side, facing Springvale Road in stacked glazed bricks, is a striped, waving flag, designed for a new, culturally diverse nation yet to be invented.

Without a single face, the building perhaps reflects the complexity of the migrants' experience.

The opposing facade – with its huge red eaves and triple-brick courtyards – reflects the suburban garden environments in a giant version of the adjacent houses behind fences. Facing the entrance car park, this side becomes an infrastructural buffer, learning its language from the asphalt ground marked by lines and cat’s eyes. At times, these faces suddenly meet. Spliced ​​together at the corners, they are theatrically fragmented – less a collision, more precise pressing against each other. It’s a building with more than one face – just like the experience of migrants.

These four faces become all the more evident since it is an object in the round, in the residential space. Without a trace of New Urbanism streetsides, there is an embrace of large setbacks and parking plots. The library almost trades the land of the figure with buildings that it has replaced closer to the street; it is now at the center of a civic garden and the landscape does a lot of urban work. An axis of relaxed seating connects the street around the corner of the building, and large open gardens replacing the buildings have revealed new views of the renovated red-brick Town Hall, the former home of Springvale City Council proclaimed in 1961. space, I spent many games of basketball, two barbecues in action, and schoolchildren singing happy birthday under bright orange umbrellas. Above all, on the giant screen of the wall, COVID-19 health messages were delivered in Vietnamese. A new variety of roses – “Enterprise” – grows in the Spirit of Enterprise garden in the forecourt – a souvenir of the well-cultivated rose garden at Enterprise Migrant Hostel.

The interior of the Community Hub is large and spans two levels. Three vertically cut holes form informal rooms and voids, echoing the trees. This circular geometry goes against the linear geometry above, with its jagged skylights, but both serve to open up the space in each direction and diffuse very even daylight. The concave courtyard around the red river gums is present in much of the interior and filters more light thanks to its double screen. There are so many materials, so many surfaces – pockets of variegated spaces are forming everywhere, for different ages and different languages. But when the architectural language begins to dissolve, it is brought back under the general idea of ​​Lyon: that more is better.2 The pieces in the space are large and sturdy, like the big wooden rail that wraps around the voids. It is a building that takes root, does not touch the earth lightly.

Community centers like this are great social condensers and the Lyon building does whatever it takes to provide a great facility that also demonstrates environmental best practices. Beyond that, the dexterity and agility of the architecture express a city with a complicated identity. Travel restrictions of 2020, when Melburnians were forced within a three-mile radius of their homes during the pandemic-induced lockdown, amplified unequal privilege across the metropolis. Suburbs such as Springvale are still often seen as “suburban”. Thus, the consideration given to Springvale by this architectural work seems even more important. This complicated city remains a little uncertain of its identity – but it continues to search for its own language. Compositionally, the Springvale Community Hub says, “The world is like this. But could it also be like this? Or like something else? ” Since most of us (being non-indigenous) are migrants, these issues are worth considering.
