Congress endorsed a plan to draft a new constitution, and on May 25, 1787, the Constitutional Convention convened at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. On September 17, 1787, after three months of debate moderated by convention president George Washington, the new U.S. constitution, which created a strong federal government with an intricate system of checks and balances, was signed by 38 of the 41 delegates present at the conclusion of the convention. As dictated by Article VII, the document would not become binding until it was ratified by nine of the 13 states.Beginning on December 7, five states–Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut–ratified it in quick succession. However, other states, especially Massachusetts, opposed the document, as it failed to reserve undelegated powers to the states and lacked constitutional protection of basic political rights, such as freedom of speech, religion, and the press. In February 1788, a compromise was reached under which Massachusetts and other states would agree to ratify the document with the assurance that amendments would be immediately proposed. The Constitution was thus narrowly ratified in Massachusetts, followed by Maryland and South Carolina. On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the document, and it was subsequently agreed that government under the U.S. Constitution would begin on March 4, 1789. In June, Virginia ratified the Constitution, followed by New York in July.On September 25, 1789, the first Congress of the United States adopted 12 amendments to the U.S. Constitution–the Bill of Rights–and sent them to the states for ratification. Ten of these amendments were ratified in 1791. In November 1789, North Carolina became the 12th state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Rhode Island, which opposed federal control of currency and was critical of compromise on the issue of slavery, resisted ratifying the Constitution until the U.S. government threatened to sever commercial relations with the state. On May 29, 1790, Rhode Island voted by two votes to ratify the document, and the last of the original 13 colonies joined the United States. Today the U.S. Constitution is the oldest written constitution in operation in the world.For more on this story and to see videos, go here.

[…] Please enter your name here Mama Mia Bright Lights (December 2017) | response: the magazine of women in mission Mama Mia Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Apopka has a lot of events associated with the Christmas season. The Tree Lighting Ceremony at Kit Land Nelson Park, the Festival of Trees at City Hall and the Christmas Parade on Park Avenue come to mind as the most visible.These longstanding traditions set the tone for the season, but where Apopka really shines is in giving. In the month of December, Apopka is 33-square-miles of heart.And nothing embodies that heart more than what happened at 1700 South Orange Blossom Trail.The Super Walmart became the safest spot in Apopka yesterday as dozens of APD officers converged in the Lawn and Garden section. But this was not about security or a call to service, or even a deal on a new grill.The APD, along with other groups, were there to participate in an event that touches the heart of the community and gives kids and their families a chance to “Shop-With-A-Cop”.For nearly twenty years, the APD has hosted this event, where Apopka police officers meet up with area youth and provide a $100 gift card to each child to purchase anything in the store they want. The department sponsored 60 children in 2016 and had hoped to provide for more this year.“What we do every year is raise a lot of money, and we give that money out and allow these kids to go shopping,” said Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer, who joined Commissioners Doug Bankson and Diane Velazquez from the City Council at the event. “I want to thank all the people who helped organize ‘Shop-With-A-Cop’.”Due to the generosity of local sponsors, the APD raised enough money to provide 100 children from the community with a Merry Christmas. The kids and their families were taken shopping by members of the police department, city commission, and the citizen’s police academy alumni association.Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce Chairwoman Deborah Perez and President Robert Agrusa, along with other chamber members and the local business community, provided the funds to help the APD put this year’s fundraising goal over the top. On December 12th, the chamber presented a check for more than $3,800 to the APD, making the total donations collected this year enough to expand the program well over previous years.“We were thankful to all of you who joined us at the Holiday Party on Tuesday evening,” said Agrusa. “It was a fantastic evening and we are happy to report the final amount raised by the Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce for the City of Apopka Police Department’s “Shop with a Cop.”Apopka Police Chief Michael McKinley was grateful for the community’s partnership in this event.“We are humbled by the support given to the department from our community to support our Shop-with-a-Cop program,” said McKinley. “It’s not about the police department, it’s about the children who will have blessings over this holiday season.”McKinley added that many times the children honored at Shop-with-a-Cop don’t just buy for themselves, but for family members, and often they even buy food and other necessities with their $100.“It just reminds us of all the blessings we have. And these donations go directly back into our community to support our citizens.”Children are recommended for participation in the program by police department members, school employees, social agencies and family shelters.Officer Jason Wiggins, who heads the public outreach program for the department and has coordinated the agency’s efforts, noted, “This program is about police and the community working together; it’s a great program, and our goal is, and always has been, to give back to the community.”All of this was made possible by the assistance of local sponsors, some of which are: The Apopka Area Chamber of Commerce, The Apopka Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association, Rock Springs Storage, United Methodist Women, Advanced Door Solutions, Dan Newlin & Partners, GFWC Apopka Women’s Club, Rotary Club of Apopka, Victoria Plaza, Yeager Insurance Agency, Mark Boylan Injury Health & Wellness, and many, many others. The department funds its community programs year-round. Those who wish to donate may do so directly to the Apopka Police Department, 112 East 6th Street, Apopka, Florida 32703.Editor’s Note: The Apopka Police Department Public Information Office contributed to this report.

ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/293132/tepoztlan-lounge-cadaval-sola-morales Clipboard Photographs: Diego BerruecosText description provided by the architects. Tepoztlan, is a small town nestled between rocky cliffs located to the south of Mexico City, 50 kilometers away from the vibrant metropolis. With its well preserved historic center and wild countryside, Tepoztlan is a town of legends and deep cultural roots that has been appreciated by writers, poets, artists and musicians over many decades, turning it into their hometown or weekend retreat. Located in this incredible context and surrounded by an astonishing landscape, the Tepoztlan Lounge is the first building completed of a larger project that also includes a series of bungalows of different sizes and designs, which can be rented by years, months or days. The lounge is set to be a central communal space for leisure in nature, and is located in the perimeter of an incredible lawn; the idiosyncrasy of the project relies on enabling the experience of the carefully manicured lawn while promoting the experience of the wild nature existing in the boundaries of this central space. The project is a negotiation between interior and exterior, a construction of an in-between condition, an inhabitable threshold, which becomes the main space of the project; the limits between the open and the content space merge to produce a single architectural entity. Save this picture!The design establishes three separate living quarters designed in accordance to the 3 activities planned; each of them is a set space defined by its use, but also by a very clear and simple architectural container: the first holds an open bar with a kitchenette, together with a couple of restrooms and dressing rooms; the second is a play area for children that can also be used as a reading room when temperatures drop at night; and finally the largest container is the living area, an enclosed, tempered and comfortable space for conversation, TV, etcetera. But it is the desire to give continuity between these three separate areas where the project is empowered and becomes meaningful; a continuous space, in full contact with the nature but protected from its inclemency is set up not only to expand the enclosed uses, but also to allow new activities to arise.Save this picture!And it is through the definition of this central space, through the definition of its shape, that the contiguous courtyards are defined; those are as essential to the project as it is the built architecture, and allows constructing as a whole, single spatial experience. At the same time that the three built containers give continuity to the central space by mans of their use and space, the adjacent patios qualify it, while providing diversity and idiosyncrasy to open space. The design of the swimming pool is part of this same intervention, and responds to the desire to characterize the spaces; its formalization necessarily resonates the layout of the lounge, while incorporating to its nature the possibility of a multiplicity of ways of using water, and plunging on it. Save this picture!The building is located as a plinth valuing the views of the mountains. The building wants to be respectful to the existing context, and understands that the vegetation and life at open air are the real protagonist. Two impressive trees that are in place are incorporated within the layout of the lounge, as if they were part of the program itself. The Tepoztlan Lounge is constructed in concrete not just for being a inexpensive and labor intensive material in Mexico and to minimize its maintenance, but also to expose its structural simplicity and neutrality towards the astonishing nature.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessHotel Tierra Patagonia / Cazu Zegers ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsMOINOPOLIS Issue #2 Call for Proposals: Ephemerality and ArchitectureArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/293132/tepoztlan-lounge-cadaval-sola-morales Clipboard Projects Tepoztlan Lounge / Cadaval & Solà-Morales Area: 250 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!+ 37 Share Tepoztlan Lounge / Cadaval & Solà-MoralesSave this projectSaveTepoztlan Lounge / Cadaval & Solà-Morales CopyHouses•Tepoztlán, Mexico “COPY” Architects: Cadaval & Solà-Morales Area Area of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeCadaval & Solà-MoralesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTepoztlánHousesLeisureMexicoPublished on November 13, 2012Cite: “Tepoztlan Lounge / Cadaval & Solà-Morales” 13 Nov 2012.

The site is located at the northern edge of Nordmarka, which is a vast wilderness just an hour north of where the family resides in Oslo. Though the landscape is still wild, it is easily reached by car, bike, or ski from the city. The location was chosen because of its proximity to Oslo and its easy access to cross country skiing and fishing, which can be done at Mylla Lake just below. It only takes a few hours to reach via back country trails on bike or skis, which Scott has occasionally indulged in, or just over an hour by car.“Amenities” that the clients requested at the outset were: three bedrooms, including a bunkroom for kids; two bathrooms as efficient and small as possible; a small annex for ski waxing, bike and ski storage, and a two person sauna; connection from inside to out.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteHytte is the Norwegian word for cabin. Hytter (cabins) are a huge part of Norwegian culture, with over a quarter of all Norwegians owning at least one. The traditional Norwegian hytte is small and primitive, serving a simple utilitarian purpose to shelter, often with an outdoor toilet and no running water. The typical interior is cramped, compartmentalized, and disconnected, with rooms loaded off a narrow corridor. The living quarters are usually dark with pine clad walls, small windows and low ceilings.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteThe design challenge was to rework the traditional hytte building type so that it still maintained its utilitarian character — compact, efficient, and driven by function— but to form the building in relation to its landscape and create an interior that felt more expansive and generous — and still included three bedrooms and two full (though tiny) bathrooms in 84 square meters.Save this picture!PlanThough planning regulations required a gable roof, the architects were able to split the gable in half to create four shed roofs. This produced a pinwheel plan with two sheltered outdoor spaces — the Morning porch and the Evening porch — which capture the sun and are protected from wind and snow shedding from the roof.Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte“The pin-wheel plan and sloping roof form is derived from the climate, the desireto separate the bedrooms for privacy and to offer contrasting views from each room. In that sense, the building is a very straightforward response to its context, while at the same time generating a unique experience,” says Casper Mork-Ulnes.Save this picture!Section AInstead of emphasizing the site’s sweeping panorama of pine and deciduous forests, mountains, and lake, Mylla Hytte takes a more deliberate approach to the landscape around it. The wings of the house engage four distinct characters of the site: the great room looks onto Mylla Lake, the guest room looks towards the rolling hillside, the kids’ room looks up at the sky, and the bedroom has a private view of the towering forest.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteRather than compartmentalizing the plan into a series of separate rooms, the interior of the 84 square meter cabin is designed as a free flowing landscape. The 2.4m to 4.3m high vaulted ceilings are continuous throughout to form a uniting canopy. Underneath the canopy are three functional cores — one for the kitchen, coat closet and bathroom, another for bathroom and storage, and another for storage and mechanical equipment — which direct the interior flow and create private zones in the interior.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteIn the end, the small cabin can comfortably accommodate the client’s family of four along with 4-6 guests within its two bedrooms, bunkroom, combined living room and kitchen, two full bathrooms.Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteTo create a warm and light filled interior, the architects used pine plywood treated with lye and white oil to finish the interior of the cabin. Custom plywood furniture, including bed frames, bunk beds, couch, dining table, benches, and shelves are found throughout.Save this picture!© Bruce Damonte“We wanted to create a clean and simple interior so used only two materials for the interiors: lyed pine plywood and concrete,” says Lexie Mork-Ulnes. “The cabin is so small, we wanted to make things as multi-purpose as possible. The kitchen island is also the bench for the dining table. The roof over the bathroom volume is a playroom for the kids, since their bedroom is so small. All of the beds have built-in drawers, and the sofa has large cubbies for books and storage bins for games and legos. The sofa is made of two single mattresses, for easy conversion to extra beds when the house is full. We attempted to make the furniture as material efficient as possible, so for example the dining table is built from exactly two sheets of plywood.”Save this picture!© Bruce DamonteProject gallerySee allShow lessMassachusetts’ LEED Platinum Award Winning Arena Named US’ Most Environmentally Sust…Architecture NewsLondon’s Landmark Brutalist “Space House” Is Captured in a Different Light in this P…Articles Share CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Jevnaker Municipality, Norway ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/894214/mylla-hytte-mork-ulnes-architects Clipboard Year: CopyAbout this officeMork-Ulnes ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsJevnaker MunicipalityNorwayPublished on May 13, 2018Cite: “Mylla Hytte / Mork-Ulnes Architects ” 13 May 2018.

New York City – One hundred fifty people stood outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue on July 7 and shouted: “Donald Trump—KKK! Racist, sexist, anti-gay!” and “¡Sí, se puede!” They were demanding business behemoth Walmart denounce billionaire Trump’s racist, woman-hating and anti-immigrant statements. “Making Change at Walmart,” a campaign of the Food and Commercial Workers, called the rally. Besides its members, other protesters included members of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union, representing Macy’s workers. Showing solidarity were “Make the Road-New York,” a group that builds Latino/a and working-class community, and the Black Institute, which focuses on public policy affecting Black people and people of color “throughout the diaspora.” The protest was part of a national day of action demanding that big business withdraw financial support from the Republican National Convention. Other protests were held in Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. (makingchangeatwalmart.org)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articlePork Producers Keeing Close Watch on House TPA Vote Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter A friend posted this on Facebook this week, and, while it makes an interesting graphic, it is lacking perspective.Certainly food prices have gone up, but far less than most other things. In fact, over the past 20 years, the rate of food price inflation has been below the overall inflation rate in the US. Consider what has happened to the cost of gasoline, your phone bill, your car, your home, and the cost of a college education over the past 20 years.The main drivers of higher food prices are NOT higher prices being received by farmers, but high transportation costs and — oh, yes — higher labor costs. Those who like to advocate for higher minimum wages forget these higher costs are passed on to those who buy the products those workers produce. SHARE
