A timely play coming to Apopka


first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter TAGSA Walk in the WoodsAHA Players Previous articleCandidates take your markNext articleFriends of Lake Apopka host cycling event Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR  “A Walk in the Woods, a play by Lee Blessing is as timely now as when it was presented on Broadway in 1988.It is directed by Liz Curtis and stars Patrick Joseph Ward and Rick Paulin.The place is a “pleasant woods on the outskirts of Geneva,” where two arms negotiators, a Russian and an American, meet informally after long, frustrating hours at the bargaining table. The Russian, Botvinnik, a seasoned veteran who has mastered the Soviet “hard line,” is urbane and humorous but, at the same time, profoundly cynical about what the current sessions can accomplish. His younger American counterpart, a newcomer to the arms-control talks, is a bit stuffy and pedantic, but also fervently idealistic about what can — and must — be achieved through perseverance and honest bargaining.“A Walk in the Woods” is an important, brilliantly executed and strikingly original play which brings deep perception and unexpected humor to its probing examination of the continuing negotiations on nuclear disarmament. The play was a long-running Broadway success. “It is a marvelous piece of theater as well as a great treatise on the nature of mankind, and should take its place as a classic of dramatic literature.” — Drama-Logue. “…a work of passion and power with the ring of political truth. It is not only the best of the few dramas to reach Broadway this season, it is also the funniest comedy.” — Time Magazine.

The Eagle Warehouse at 28 Old Fulton Street in Brooklyn Heights is a nineteenth century loft building that was converted to residential use in the 1970s, incorporating a mix of duplexes and triplexes each with a unique floor plan. This project encompasses the renovation of a 3,700 sf. residence off of the building’s main lobby, which combines two older, conventional duplexes into one open, minimalistic space for the new single family owner. The demolition of non load-bearing interior walls revealed the structural shell of the duplex, and the design was conceived as an intervention within this existing structure. The formal strategy for this residence was developed around the interplay of solid and void. At the central structural bay, the floor was removed at the main level, creating a void outlined by the columns at the corners and a continuous glass railing. A sculptural spiral staircase occupies this negative space, which brings light to the recreational spaces at the cellar level. A counterpoint to the void is provided by an adjacent solid, which houses the kitchen and bathroom spaces and separates the private bedrooms from the public areas of the apartment.

In addition to the exposed blackened steel, stainless steel, and glass at the central void, rich natural textures are integrated throughout the space, such as deep oak wood floors and limestone flooring and slabs.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Architecture Tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Solomon R.

Situation for women’s rights organisations in Global South worsened during pandemic


first_imgIt shows the solutions women’s rights organisations (WROs) established in order to overcome funding challenges that worsened for organisations representing women and girls in the Global South, yet how the patriarchal humanitarian and government systems they operate within continue to exclude them from decision-making in crisis response and recovery planning. Advertisement The evidence indicates that throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, WROs have continued to play a critical role in ensuring access to vital health and education services for women and children, support services to respond to increased levels of gender-based violence, and financial support for women whose livelihoods have been compromised. In each of the research countries, the findings highlight that one of the greatest strengths of WROs is their close connection and implicit trust with communities, making them, it says, uniquely equipped to run prevention and awareness-raising activities. Naomi Tulay-Solanke, Feminist Humanitarian Network Steering Committee member and Executive Director of Community Healthcare Initiative, Liberia, commented:  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The findings show that WROs also encountered a number of bureaucratic challenges accessing funding from United Nations agencies and International Non-Governmental Organisations. These ranged from excessive due diligence and permit requirements to qualify them for funding, to programmes that excluded them from information about funding opportunities. According to the report, the impact of this hindered the scope and continuity of services WROs could provide during the Covid-19 crisis and also compromised their long-term sustainability.  However, the exclusion of WROs from emergency committees was a recurrent theme in the country reports and the report reveals how the pandemic and the response to it disproportionately impacted women, highlighting long-standing systemic challenges that are also relevant to crises beyond the pandemic. In Lebanon, one organisation reported that violence against women in 2020 had increased by 60% and against children by 30% compared to 2019. WROs in Nepal and Palestine reported an increase in suicide and suicidal tendencies amongst women. In Palestine, self-harm increased drastically for women, with a 466% increase since 2019 (or six times higher than in pre-Covid-19 times). Melanie May | 21 May 2021 | News The report, Women’s Humanitarian Voices: Covid-19 through a feminist lens from the Feminist Humanitarian Network, brings together key learnings from research in eight countries – Liberia, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Lebanon, Palestine, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Women’s rights organisations play a vital role on the Covid frontlines, but are excluded from decision-making, and response and recovery planning – a situation that has intensified during the past year, a report has found. “WROs are on the frontlines of crisis and disasters – they are often the first to respond, they ensure that nobody in the communities they work in is left behind, and that humanitarian action is linked to long term work to advance women’s rights. And yet this work and leadership role goes unrecognised, partly because as WROs we don’t have the same funding as bigger actors, like INGOs, to showcase our achievements and our innovative approaches. This needs to change.” Leadership: National governments must include WROs and the women they represent at all levels of decision-making during emergencies without exception. Funding: Donor governments, UN agencies and other donors should fund WROs that work at local and grassroots levels directly with flexible, long term funding, and should minimise bureaucratic requirements that exclude most WROs. Gender-based violence: All must recognise that the existing, ongoing global pandemic of violence against women and girls has been exacerbated by Covid-19 and take urgent and effective action.Livelihoods and access to critical services: National and local governments must ensure that service provision that protects women’s rights and supports livelihoods and economic opportunities is inclusive.Operations: Donors and the international community more broadly must immediately acknowledge and prioritise equal access to the internet, and digital technology and infrastructure to ensure that WROs are not excluded through online ways of working. Compounding crises: Governments and the international community must acknowledge the critical role WROs play to address the gendered impacts of crisis, and that this role is even more critical when different crises occur simultaneously.
