It also provides retailers with technology, payment processing and customer care services for their e-commerce sites.For EBay, GSI is attractive because of its expertise in taking customer orders, managing them, and sending them out, an area in which online retail rival excels.EBay chief executive John Donahoe said GSI’s services are also a way for EBay to woo large retailers looking to beef up their electronic capabilities. As part of the deal, EBay will sell off GSI’s licensed sports merchandise business and 70 per cent of ShopRunner and Rue La La, which will all become part of a new holding company run by GSI’s founder and chief executive Michael Rubin.EBay will lend Rubin’s new company $467m.

Paisajes con Madera (facades), Schüco-Alucer (alluminium windows), Intemper (green roofs) The term “Ex” refers to a vital process developed by our client through an abandonment of downtown Madrid and its disadvantages leaving behind a world of urban routines. This displacement aims to achieve a feeling of retreat and isolation inherent to the rural setting of the Somosierra mountain range, where the house is located, but taking advantage of its close proximity to the city, with the property at just 1km. distance from the N-1 highway and one-hour drive from Madrid. A way of life in tune with nature but accessible from the city, appropriate for young dwellers. Save this picture!© Jorge Lopez CondeThe house, camouflaged inside a dense forest, manages to face the views of the granite Somosierra and La Pinilla peaks to the south while looking at the same time to the reddish vast sediment plains that extend to the north, sitting in this geological transition and facing both directions. These views are formalized in two large identical 4,50m. openings situated in opposite sides of the central square-plan living area. This living area has a fireplace and is double-heighted to the north, regulating the inside temperature of the house. Save this picture!© Jorge Lopez CondeBuilding systems incorporate high-tech devices in construction methods with a predominant concern for sustainability in the processes and materials employed, offering environmental standards that combine a contemporary level of comfort with the recovery of a secluded lifestyle with all of its charms. Save this picture!© Jorge Lopez CondeThe use of wood and its qualities, not only technical (insulation, easiness in handling, waste reduction) but also cultural and somatic (awareness of a sustainable living, warm textures, comfort connotations), determines the entire working process, providing the house with its characteristics natural and friendly finishes. Save this picture!© Jorge Lopez CondeThe working process was drastically reduced from the usual 13-14 months in buildings of this size (120-140m2) to 3 months, allowing for the house completion in about 8 months from the first drawings, lowering the costs by minimizing transport, reducing displacement of all parts involved and minimizing management phases. The quartering of high-strength cross-laminated wood panels is modulated to fit one single truck which is driven from the Austrian factory. The panel are then assembled on-site by skilled labour (3 people) in a 5 day process. The house is built without earthworks and placed gently in the shade of a group of existing trees, rehearsing an essential lifestyle which mixes contemporary devices with the recovery of basic activities: fireplace, vegetable garden, septic tank and heat generation system through fire-heated water are combined with 18 cm. mineral-wool thermal insulation, triple gas filled anodized aluminium glazing 6 / 6 +12 +4 mm. and green roofs with a multilayer cover. All these devices add up to a drastic reduction in maintenance costs. Facades are done with 16cm. wide toothed wooden planks manufactured from cheap local Valsaín (Segovia) pine, recovering a XVI Century local tradition from the Borbón-era and in disuse nowadays. This closes a circle which starts with the high-tech-prefab “pan-European” structure of the house and ends with the reactivation of a beloved local craft in the house’s enclosures.Project gallerySee allShow lessOil Silo Home / PinkCloud.DKArticlesRiga International Airport Winning Proposal / Haptic ArchitectsArticles Share Ex House / GarcíaGermán ArquitectosSave this projectSaveEx House / GarcíaGermán Arquitectos Houses CopyAbout this officeGarcíaGermán ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesCastillejo de MesleónSpainPublished on February 15, 2012Cite: “Ex House / GarcíaGermán Arquitectos” 15 Feb 2012.

eTapesty launches mobile-accessible donor database

first_img eTapesty has launched a version of its Web-based fundraising database that can be accessed via mobile phone.eTapestry Mobile was launched yesterday in Atlanta at the Association of Fundraising Professionals International Conference on Fundraising. eTapestry, which offers its donor database tools to nonprofits remotely rather than loading them on to their PC networks, claimed that it is the “first mobile-compatible site for donor databases.”Now eTapestry clients can access their donor databases via the Web for their Web-enabled cell phones. They can access and update account information, search accounts and retrieve query results. Advertisement eTapesty launches mobile-accessible donor database While Web-enabled phones can access most Web sites, high-resolution graphics and lower phone bandwidths make it difficult for visitors to navigate, unless the sites are formatted especially for mobile devices.eTapestry Mobile formats information for a small resolution screen. It is compatible across a “wide range of mobile devices”, including PDAs, smart phones and WAP-enabled phone browsers, which support XHTML content. “It’s the next logical step for eTapestry, which has the goal of freeing nonprofits from the office environment and their network,” said eTapestry Chief Operating Officer Steve Rusche. “Fundraisers actively involved in donor relationship-building spend time on the road in face-to-face meetings, but still need that office connectivity.” Howard Lake | 3 April 2006 | News Tagged with: Digital Technologycenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Portland riders fight unfair bus fare

first_imgBus Riders Unite of Portland, Ore., is fighting for Low Income Fare Equity, demanding an equitable bus fare for low-income riders. On Aug. 31, workers gathered in front of TriMet’s administrative office. TriMet is the public agency responsible for mass transit in the Portland area.The demonstrators presented a 32-page report detailing how TriMet can meet the LIFE demand. They delivered the report directly into the hands of the TriMet board of directors with chants of “Bus Riders Unite! Transit is a human right!”Several speakers from BRU — people of color, people with disabilities, women — lined up to convey their mission and relate their struggles. They stressed that the bus fare is too high for low-income Portland households.BRU is “a grassroots initiative that collectively organizes low-income people and people of color for public transit justice in the Portland metropolitan area.” It is a part of OPAL [Organizing People/Activating Leaders] Environmental Justice Oregon, whose mission is “building power for Environmental Justice and Civil Rights in our communities.”The same day as the rally, OPAL echoed the voices of the demonstration in its website post, saying, “People who depend on TriMet are being priced out of the service area by rising housing costs, stagnant wages and record-high eviction rates. We must keep our region economically diverse and inclusive, or we risk making segregation worse.”BRU’s militant, multinational activism has won several victories, including the right to testify at TriMet board meetings and implementation of a community-elected Transit Equity Advisory Committee.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Trump engineers right-wing takeover

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Donald Trump at the White House helicopter pad.Trump has demolished the original loose coalition that included establishment figures in the White House and the Cabinet. This coalition had been put in place by the broader ruling class to balance the ultrarightists around Trump, and Trump himself.March 24 — With the appointment of racist, militarist warmonger John Bolton to the position of national security adviser, Donald Trump has virtually transformed his regime into a bastion of ultrarightists.With this transformation, Trump has demolished the original loose coalition that included establishment figures in the White House and the Cabinet. This coalition had been put in place by the broader ruling class to balance the ultrarightists around Trump and Trump himself.The transformation has sharply increased the dangers of war and economic hardship for the masses. Leaders of the workers and the oppressed should take this development seriously and prepare for resistance now.Trump and his handpicked, ultraright yes-men are basically in charge now. With the appointment of Bolton as national security adviser, virtually all the key positions in the White House and the Cabinet are now headed by extreme right-wingers and Trump lackeys.The single exception is Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis. Known as “Mad Dog” Mattis, this Iraq war criminal and butcher of Fallujah has nevertheless sounded caution about nuclear war or first strikes against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Mattis has also advocated for the U.S. staying in the Iran nuclear pact and has differed with Trump’s pro-torture statements.The key foreign policy positions in any administration are secretary of state, secretary of defense, national security adviser and chief of staff. The head of the National Economic Council and the trade adviser are also key positions.Trump has used his firing and appointment powers to see to it that each of these positions is now occupied by an ultrarightist who is compatible with his belligerent, racist, militaristic program.Hawk replaced by superhawkTrump pushed out Gen. H.R. McMaster as national security adviser even though he was a war hawk. The reasons are partly political, partly personal and partly factional.  But the details are not as important as the fact that he has replaced McMaster with a superhawk, John Bolton.Bolton on Feb. 28 wrote a major piece for the Wall Street Journal falsely arguing that there is a legal basis for making pre-emptive war against the DPRK. He is for regime change and for militarily removing the government of the DPRK, saying the south, which has been occupied by U.S. troops since 1945, should take over the north.Not only does Bolton want to get the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal, but he also wants regime change in Teheran, and would use bombing to try to accomplish that.He was an architect of the war in Iraq and still defends it. He was one of an influential group of neocons in the George W. Bush administration, along with Paul Wolfowitz, who gave policy fuel to Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld to start the Iraq war.Bolton was so right wing that he could not get confirmation from the Senate to be the permanent U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. He was acting ambassador for a year in a so-called recess appointment by Bush. But he had to resign when his recess appointment was up because he could not get confirmed.This ambassador to the U.N. once said, “If they cut the top 10 floors off the U.N. it wouldn’t make any difference.”Purge began with Priebus and ended with McMasterThe “moderate” side of Trump’s initial coalition consisted of such establishment figures as Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, former head of the Republican National Committee; Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former head of ExxonMobil; Gary Cohn, number two at Goldman Sachs, who was head of the National Economic Council; National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster; and Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis. They are all gone now, with the exception of Mattis.Priebus was pushed out early to be replaced by Gen. John Kelly — a racist, pro-Confederate, immigration hawk and former head of Homeland Security and the U.S. Southern Command.More recently, Tillerson was ousted and is to be replaced by Islamophobic, Iran war hawk Mike Pompeo, who was brought over from head of the CIA and is closely connected to the Koch brothers. Trump and Pompeo have talked on a daily basis for months.Next to go was Cohn, who had worked with Trump to push through the gigantic corporate tax-cut giveaways. But Wall Street has opposed Trump’s trade war policies of imposing tariffs, especially on imports from China. However, Trump imposed the tariffs anyway, siding with anti-China tariff hawk Peter Navarro, his trade guru, and billionaire wheeler-dealer Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. Cohn was forced out, replaced as head of the National Economic Council by Reaganite fringe economist Larry Kudlow. This vicious, anti-working-class, right-wing economist advocates for even greater corporate tax cuts as the cure-all for the economy.‘Moderates’ are exploiters and war makers, tooIt would be politically foolish to regard the ousted group of bankers, generals and corporate exploiters as “moderates.” Certainly, with respect to the workers and the oppressed at home and abroad, they were anything but moderate.McMaster and Mattis were commanders in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as war planners and war criminals. Tillerson was head of a global oil empire that plundered the resources of countries on all continents, especially in the MIddle East.Cohn was the number two executive in Goldman Sachs, the firm with a high degree of responsibility for the economic collapse of 2007-09. Among other things, it had bundled and sold bad housing loans and then bet that the loans would fail. Those failed loans resulted in foreclosures and evictions for hundreds of thousands of homeowners and tenants.Priebus, Tillerson, Cohn, McMaster and Mattis had been pushed into the Trump administration early on to ensure that the broad ruling-class establishment would have policy input. The strategists of imperialism did not want Trump to wreck their world political, economic and trade apparatus. They have nurtured this apparatus, which includes the U.N., the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, NATO, the Organization of American States, the World Trade Organization, the North American Free Trade Agreement and various imperialist trade agreements, immigration practices, etc. All this has been carefully constructed and painstakingly maintained for decades in the interests of fostering U.S. imperialist interests.Trump’s campaign rhetoric was directed against all these institutions and policies. The ruling class was especially afraid of Trump’s attacks on China, NAFTA, NATO and immigration policy, among other things. The bosses and bankers felt they needed a group in the administration who would give them a voice. They needed a way to counter Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, Peter Navarro, etc., as well as Trump himself.Trump has now silenced the voices of the establishment inside his administration, except for Mattis. No one knows where the dominant forces in the Pentagon will come down on the question of attacking the DPRK or Iran. But all mass organizations have to prepare themselves to resist an escalation in the war drive.Tariffs, trade wars and the working class The ruling class always carries on its wars at the expense of the working class and the oppressed. This goes for military wars as well as trade wars.This fact is invisible to the labor bureaucracy. AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and Vice President Leo Gerard, head of the Steel Workers Union, have hailed the tariffs on steel and aluminum as a victory for creating jobs. These labor lieutenants of the ruling class are trying to protect their comfortable positions and their oversized salaries.Meanwhile, tariffs will cost jobs. And not just the jobs of U.S. workers, but the jobs of Chinese, Japanese and Korean workers due to the contraction of steel and aluminum production.China has already imposed limited tariffs on U.S. goods. The producers of those goods will engage in layoffs if the bosses are not stopped. Workers World newspaper of March 15 reported that when, for 13 months in 2002, President George Bush imposed tariffs, 200,000 workers lost their jobs.Instead of hailing tariffs as a way to get jobs, true labor leaders would be fighting for all those steelworkers, coal miners and other industrial workers whose jobs have been destroyed by the bosses’ technology and offshoring. They would make the capitalists responsible for layoffs and unemployment and demand a jobs program for displaced workers.The narrow-minded, selfish labor bureaucrats are hailing the tariffs in the same way they fought for the Dakota Access Pipeline, which trampled on the rights of Indigenous people and was a blow to the environment. A true working-class mentality puts the interests of the entire class ahead of the narrow interests of a tiny section of higher-paid workers.It is worth noting that Trumka and company did little to support the teachers of West Virginia, who waged a heroic strike in a “right-to-work” (for less!) state.People below move in opposite direction from TrumpTrump, the ruling class and the do-nothing heads of labor are all moving in the direction of political reaction. But the people are moving in the exact opposite direction.Over a million students came out in hundreds of demonstrations against the National Rifle Association on March 24. Their slogans were moderate, but the spirit of determination to push back the gun lobby and expose the politicians who take their blood money was something new.Over a million women came out for the Women’s March last January to answer Trump’s hateful misogyny.The Black Lives Matter movement laid the basis for the societywide consciousness about racist police murders.The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals solidarity movement has raised consciousness about the inhuman deportations and the destruction of immigrant families.The reactionary current emanating from the upper echelons of ruling-class society is bound to eventually clash with the progressive current coming from the lower echelons — the poorer sections of the workers, the oppressed communities, the immigrants, the women, the LGBTQ community and the students. Reaction cannot hold forever.last_img read more

Late goal ties No. 7 Texas in Austin

first_imgRobbie Vaglio Twitter Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks TCU vs UTSA women’s soccer at at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas on August 20, 2017. (Photo by Gregg Ellman) printJunior midfielder Karitas Tomasdottir saved the Frogs Friday night in Austin, Texas. A bouncing ball in the penalty box found Tomasdottir’s foot and she cleared the ball into the net. The goal was her fourth of the season and earned the Frogs a 1-1 tie against the No. 7 University of Texas Longhorns.“We showed some character, some fight and some resiliency in the second half to come back and do what we did,” head coach Eric Bell said. “I’m very proud of our group and happy coming away with a point on the road, which is important against a very quality opponent in Texas.”The first half was dominated by the Frogs, who outshot the Longhorns 8-7 in the period, but Texas entered the locker room with the lead due to Kayla Dollas’ goal off a corner kick in the 36th minute.The Longhorns came out of halftime with determination to seal the victory, firing off nine shots in the period, but were unable to find a goal to double the lead as sophomore goalkeeper Katie Lund protected the goal for the Horned Frogs. Lund made a total of four saves on the match.Lund’s stout play in net set up Tomasdottir’s late-game heroics. The Longhorns were called for a foul in the final six minutes of the match, setting up a free kick attempt from first-year defender Tijana Djuricek. She sent a pass inside the six-yard box and a rebound allowed by the Longhorn’s goalkeeper was pounced on by Tomasdottir, tying the game in the late stages of regulation.Overtime did not prove to be eventful for either team as the Frogs fired off the only two shots of the extra period, both of which were saved by the Longhorns.With the tie, the Frogs move to 9-4-1 on the season and 3-1-1 in Big 12 action.Over the past two weekends, the Frogs have played two road games, one at Texas Tech and at the University of Texas. Bell believes that the solid road-game experience and performance should prove fruitful for the home portion of their schedule.“You want to make sure you take care of home field and get wins,” he said. “On the road, you have to be smart and come away with at least a point. If you can steal one on the road, that’s big. We want to go into these games trying to win them, but at least coming away with a point. The past two weekends have been good for us on the road and hopefully that continues.”Bell also said that close games, like the one tonight, will continue to grow the team how he desires.The Frogs will return to Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium Friday, Oct. 13 for a matchup against the Oklahoma Sooners.
