The eruptions and lava flows have displaced 2,000 residents since they began May 3. Photo: Hawaii County Civil Defense[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians in Hawaii have thrown their support behind volcano relief efforts this month as lava, ash and toxic gas from eruptions of Kilauea continue to destroy homes, prompt evacuations and disrupt life in the Puna District of what is known as the Big Island.The evacuations have displaced about 2,000 people in the island’s southeast corner, including some members of Church of the Holy Apostles in Hilo, which is about a half-hour north of the evacuation zone. Of the six Episcopal congregations on Hawaii’s Big Island, Holy Apostles is closest to the volcano and its line of active fissures.The Diocese of Hawaii, based in Honolulu on Oahu, has been in regular contact with the Rev. Katlin McCallister, the priest-in-charge at Holy Apostles, as her congregation tends to members affected by the volcano and donates money and supplies to the broader disaster response. The church has pinned a list to the top of its Facebook page detailing the many ways Episcopalians can lend a hand.Despite the scale of the disaster and the continued threat it poses, McCallister has been encouraged by how people across the community have banded together, especially the interfaith coalition that includes Holy Apostles.“The way that the faith groups have been able to rise to the occasion and work together is … the kingdom Christ is calling us toward, the unified body,” McCallister told Episcopal News Service. “It’s truly inspiring, and I really think it’s a testament to what we can do. We are stronger together.”Holy Apostles, with an annual Sunday attendance of about 120, draws members from across a large geographic area, and several members have been directly affected by the disaster. One family lost its home and farm to the lava flows. About five other member families have had to flee the evacuation zone. The spokeswoman for the mayor’s office also is a Holy Apostles member and has been working tirelessly since the eruptions started May 3, McCallister said.May 23 evening #HVO #Kilauea update #Kilauea: Lava & ground cracking continue in East Rift Zone.

Relief efforts need to begin even as authorities are still in crisis mode.In the case of Kilauea, eruptions are still being reported in the Lower East Rift Zone and the middle part of its fissure system, which is east of the volcano’s main crater. The residential developments of Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens have been hit hard by lava flows and ground cracking, according to the daily updates from the Big Island’s county government. About 50 structures have been destroyed, including two dozen homes.The lava’s encroachment on a geothermal power plant raised additional concerns this week, and authorities are working with the utility to secure the plant’s wells.The lava flow also has crossed Highway 137 on its path to the ocean, cutting off all but one potential ground evacuation route for about 1,000 residents remaining in the Kalapana area, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. The Hawaii Army National Guard said May 23 that it had two military helicopters available to assist with new evacuations if necessary.Those Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallions “can basically evacuate a whole subdivision of 500 people within two hours,” said Janet Snyder, the Holy Apostles member who works as spokesperson for Hawaii Island Mayor Harry Kim.Fissure 22 jets 160+ ft into the air; three short videos show fissure complex in Kīlauea Volcano’s Lower East Rift Zone, May 22, 2018. https://t.co/cF2LtmpkrT pic.twitter.com/ebkFZcPnL9— USGS Volcanoes (@USGSVolcanoes) May 24, 2018The volcano also is spewing ash, sometimes in plumes as high as 8,000 feet, and wind is carrying some of the ash west, affecting communities in the neighboring Kau District. Air quality in the Puna District has worsened because of sulfur dioxide from the eruption.Authorities have been distributing masks this week to shield from the ash, but the masks don’t protect against gases and vapors. That is why air purifiers are needed in the area, especially in schools, McCallister said, and her congregation is working to raise money to help buy the equipment.The church is partnering with other faith groups, government agencies, social service agencies and nonprofit organizations to coordinate local relief efforts. McCallister also has been talking with Episcopal Relief & Development about ways the agency can assist.Holy Apostles created its own Kilauea Relief Fund to collect donations from across the diocese and beyond to pay for a long list of items, including blankets, pillows, clothing, air purifiers and rental assistance. The church offered its parking lot for displaced residents wishing to camp in their cars rather than stay at emergency shelters, though only one family has regularly taken the church up on that offer. Most people are staying with family members or friends, McCallister said.And McCallister has provided pastoral care for members displaced by the volcano.“It’s an emotional situation for people. We’re talking about homes and lives, cultural heritage. Family heritage is a deep, deep part of life here,” she said, and for families who have lived in the same home for generations, it is hard to suddenly leave that behind.Lava follows the path of steepest descent to the ocean. Here is the May 21 fissure and flow map. https://t.co/vBjYPHG5Wd pic.twitter.com/mj2YLzzc6C— USGS Volcanoes (@USGSVolcanoes) May 22, 2018Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick pledged the support of the Diocese of Hawaii early on, issuing a statement May 4 to say he was coordinating with Holy Apostles to help those most in need.“Though the Puna District of the Big Island is less populated than other areas of the state, the more available affordable housing prices have led to an enormous increase in development in Puna and have made this district the fastest growing area on that island,” Fitzpatrick said. “It is also an area with fewer resources and support systems. Some of those impacted will include the most vulnerable.”McCallister’s congregation and its community partners have been deliberate in reaching out to all who need help in this difficult time.“While the folks of my congregation are well cared for and we’re making sure that they have everything they need long term, there are people out there that don’t have a community like that,” she said. “What the wider community is trying to do is make sure no one is forgotten and no one falls through he cracks.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Located in Puerto Escondido, Mexico, Casa Cova is arranged on a 100 meters long by 35 meters wide lot between the Pacific Ocean and the Oaxacan mountain range, only 70 meters from the coast. The project program was designed as a two-family vacation home, which involved the creation of two different compounds of private rooms that are connected through common recreational areas.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe house consists of two main parts: a large central common area and two parallel arms located on the side of the lot containing the private suites. The large-scale central volume marks the access to the house, which has two main side entrances that pass through a lattice-wall, helping to ventilate the common spaces and creating a dynamic light pattern from dusk to dawn. This central volume is embodied in a high-ceilinged multipurpose public space containing a living room, a dining area and a bar. The volume is crowned by a 30-meter long ‘palapa’, a regional hedging technique made from dried palm leaves, which cools tropical temperatures down to around 23 ° C providing shade and space for heat to escape through the top of the frame.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoA system of parallel concrete walls encloses the two arms with the private rooms of the house. Each of these arms houses three pavilions. Each master suite has its own framed view of the Pacific horizon. The pavilions are connected by a series of interlocking open courtyards that create the main views and entry points of the rooms, in addition to achieving cross ventilation so that the temperatures of the interior can be reduced. All the private rooms and the main central volume share the view and access in the centre to a swimming pool designed as a set of alternating levels, containing shaded recreational areas that look out to the ocean.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe house was designed to work with its natural context, using locally sourced dried palm leaves for walls and ceilings, “parota” wood for joinery, and a green breath from the low-maintenance regional vegetation chosen for landscaping to help to obtain low-cost maintenance and to dignify the ageing process of the building. The reliable use of concrete in the structure and finishes also responds to local needs, the constant intensity of the sun and the salinity of the place require a material that ages well without the need for much maintenance.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!© Rafael GamoThe use of organic materials and concrete is also related to the fact that the house was built using regional craftsmanship and techniques, just as the interior decorations and the local art exhibited in the project.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe building is also strategically raised 5 feet above the ground, to avoid flooding from the well-known ocean swell that generally affects this area of the Puerto Escondido coast.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe main rooms, interlocking floor plans and high ceilings of the “Casa Cova” seek to remind us of the alternating heights of the massive chambers of the archaeological ruins of Mitla, juxtaposed with the smaller private passages commonly found in pre-colonial regional architecture.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoProject gallerySee allShow lessAlfredo Jaar: Sadness as an Uninhabitable SpaceArticlesHouse Between Party Walls / Josep FerrandoSelected Projects Share ArchDaily Mexico Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  Casa Cova / anonimous “COPY” “COPY”center_img CopyHouses•Puerto Escondido, Mexico Projects Houses Architects: anonimous Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 Save this picture!© Rafael Gamo+ 23Curated by Clara Ott Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/949070/casa-cova-anonimous Clipboard CopyAbout this officeanonimousOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPuerto EscondidoOn FacebookMexicoPublished on October 07, 2020Cite: “Casa Cova / anonimous” [Casa Cova / anonimous] 07 Oct 2020.

PYC Therapeutics Highlights Progress in Its Transformation to a U.S. Clinical-Stage Company and 2021…

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness By Digital AIM Web Support – February 22, 2021 TAGS  Twitter Previous articleIn Israel and beyond, virus vaccines bring political powerNext articleJuniper Research: Smart Traffic Management to Significantly Reduce Congestion and Emissions; Saving Cities $277 Billion by 2025 Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApp WhatsApp Twittercenter_img PYC Therapeutics Highlights Progress in Its Transformation to a U.S. Clinical-Stage Company and 2021 Corporate Objectives Pinterest Pinterest Facebook PERTH, Australia and NEW YORK, Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — PYC Therapeutics (ASX: PYC), a biotechnology company developing a new generation of precision RNA therapeutics to change the lives of patients with inherited diseases, today announced updates to its programs and outlined its 2021-2022 corporate objectives. PYC is initially targeting inherited ocular diseases, for which it has three preclinical candidates in development. “This year we are focused on transforming PYC Therapeutics into a U.S.-based, clinical-stage biotechnology company, including making significant advances in moving our three preclinical inherited ocular disease programs toward the clinic and leveraging our RNA platform to create new development candidates in both ocular and neurodegenerative diseases,” said Sahm Nasseri, U.S. Chief Executive Officer of PYC Therapeutics. “We have previously highlighted the importance of building out PYC in the U.S. and I am pleased with our progress and external engagements we have been able to have over the last few months. These engagements with banks, potential future investors as well as potential partners have validated the importance and relevance of PYC’s technology as well as our choice in initial drug development programs. RNA therapeutics and ophthalmology remain top areas of interest in the very active US biotech capital markets. On this foundation, I believe we are very well positioned to deliver on the promise of our science to advance RNA medicines that have the potential to change the lives of patients with inherited diseases.” 2021 Objectives and Program Updates Corporate Initiatives: In late 2020, PYC began its transformation from an Australia-based, discovery-focused organization into a U.S.-based, clinical-stage biotechnology company that is well positioned to deliver on several key milestones during 2021. Expand U.S. Management Team. Last year, PYC appointed Sahm Nasseri as U.S. Chief Executive Officer and world-renowned RNA therapeutics pioneer Sue Fletcher, PhD as Chief Scientific Officer. The Company’s Chief Business Officer, Kaggen Ausma has relocated from Australia to the U.S. to lead PYC’s business and corporate development growth initiatives. In the first half of 2021, PYC expects to name several new leadership team members, including a Chief Development Officer and a Chief Financial Officer, and appointment of U.S. based and industry experienced Directors. The talent, capability and credibility these appointments will bring to PYC will be critical enablers of the Company’s continuing transformation. Expand U.S. Development Capabilities and Access to Capital Markets. PYC plans to maintain its drug discovery and laboratory operations in Australia and will be building its preclinical and clinical development, manufacturing, regulatory and business development functions in the U.S. In parallel, the Company intends to undertake important corporate and business development activities in the U.S in 2021 and has been engaging with U.S biotech institutional investors and potential biotech and pharmaceutical partners to lay the foundation for these initiatives. In the next six months, the Company plans to establish a West Coast location for its U.S. corporate headquarters. Strong Cash Position to Support U.S. Expansion and Growth. PYC ended 2020 with $44 million (USD) in cash and cash equivalents. Based on its current operating plans, and considering the Australian R&D tax rebate, this provides the Company with a multi-year cash runway enabling a very strong foundation for execution of both Corporate and Program objectives. Inherited Ocular Diseases: These programs aim to employ PYC’s proprietary cell penetrating peptides (CPPs) to deliver rationally designed RNA therapeutics into retinal cells to treat diseases caused by a specific gene mutation or a missing or defective protein. VP-001 for the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa type 11 (RP11). RP11 is an inherited retinal degenerative disease that causes progressive loss of vision and often leads to blindness in both adults and children. There are currently no disease-modifying therapies available for RP11. PYC’s lead development candidate VP-001 is designed to deliver its therapeutic RNA cargo directly into the nuclei of retinal cells, with the goal of upregulating PRPF31 gene expression and reversing the progressive retinal degeneration and eventual blindness caused by RP11. PYC’s preclinical research to date has demonstrated VP-001’s ability to upregulate PRPF31, correct key structural deficiencies, and improve phagocytosis and cilia incidence and length in retinal pigmented epithelial cells. These results have all been achieved in patient-derived models and with minimal evidence of toxicity. PYC has advanced VP-001 into Investigational New Drug (IND)-enabling studies and expects to report results from important large animal toxicity studies in the middle of 2021, with the goal of submitting an IND to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during the first half of 2022. VP-002 for the treatment of autosomal dominant optic atrophy (ADOA). ADOA is an inherited optic nerve disorder caused by mutations in the OPA1 gene that cause vision loss in both children and adults and can lead to blindness. There is currently no approved therapy for ADOA. VP-002 is designed to deliver its therapeutic RNA cargo and correct the protein deficiency in retinal cells caused by the OPA1 mutation which results in ADOA. PYC is currently conducting lead optimization work with VP-002 and expects to report results from patient-derived models in the first half of 2021 with additional efficacy and safety data across the balance of 2021. PYC-001 for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy (DR). DR is a complication of diabetes where high blood sugar damages blood vessels in the retinal tissue, resulting in vision loss and potentially blindness for more than 40 million people globally1. The current standard of care is anti-VEGF therapy which is not optimal due to lack of response and/or durability of response, along with emerging evidence that prolonged use leads to retinal damage. PYC-001 delivers a PYC-designed modified anti-VEGF RNA cargo that halts the destruction of the retinal blood vessels. PYC is currently conducting lead optimization work with PYC-001 and expects to report results from patient-derived and in vivo models throughout 2021. Additional undisclosed ocular candidates. PYC is cultivating a rich pipeline of novel development candidates to address additional ocular diseases. The Company expects to unveil additional development candidates for the treatment of high unmet need ocular indications during 2021. Central Nervous System (CNS) Diseases: These programs aim to employ PYC’s proprietary CPPs to deliver rationally designed RNA therapeutics to treat neurodegenerative diseases. Undisclosed CNS candidate. Neurodegenerative diseases represent a significant unmet need, and PYC’s CPP-PMO (phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomer) technology is uniquely placed to intervene meaningfully in the RNA dysregulation which characterizes many of these disease processes. PYC expects to name one CNS development candidate targeting a high unmet need neurodegenerative condition during the first half of 2021. Mr. Nasseri continued: “This is a truly exciting and transformational time for PYC, as we build upon the extensive foundation laid in 2020. Our pioneering research team led by Prof. Fletcher is rapidly validating our unique approach to correcting inherited retinal diseases, while also exploring the area of neurodegenerative diseases. With the capital to support our pipeline goals and recruit top talent in the U.S., along with the strong U.S. market potential of our candidate therapies, we believe we are well positioned to enable significant value inflections in 2021 and 2022.” About PYC Therapeutics PYC Therapeutics (ASX: PYC) is a development-stage biotechnology company pioneering a new generation of RNA therapeutics that utilize Cell Penetrating Peptides (CPPs), a revolutionary delivery technology designed to overcome the major challenges of current gene-based therapies. PYC believes its CPP technology provides safer, more effective access for a wide range of potent and precise drug cargoes to the highest value drug targets that exist inside cells. The Company is leveraging its leading-edge science to develop a pipeline of novel therapies with an initial focus on inherited eye diseases for which it has unveiled three preclinical stage assets. PYC’s discovery and laboratory operations are located in Australia and the Company recently launched and expansion into the U.S. for its preclinical, clinical, regulatory and business development operations.

Cuomo’s crisis: What a weakened or departing governor means for real estate

first_img Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Andrew CuomoPolitics Photo Illustration of Gov. Andrew Cuomo (iStock, Getty/Illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)When the real estate industry wanted an alternative route to comply with a New York City building emissions cap, it looked to Albany. This year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered one in his executive budget proposal.But that change, and other industry priorities, are now in jeopardy. Cuomo is facing calls from Democrats and Republicans to resign after three women accused him of sexual harassment. Even before those reports emerged, Assembly member Ron Kim had begun pushing for impeachment over the revelation that Cuomo’s administration underreported Covid-19 deaths in nursing homes. The legislature this week moved to strip him of the emergency powers granted at the start of the pandemic, preventing him from issuing new directives and limiting his ability to extend existing ones.ADVERTISEMENTThe uncertainty over the governor’s future looms over Albany as state officials work out how to balance the $193 billion budget before April 1. Advocates and elected officials have already taken aim at key proposals, including the emissions workaround, and hope Cuomo’s weakness or absence will give them more leverage.Beyond the budget, some in the real estate industry are concerned about what the loss of a powerful ally would mean for pandemic recovery and other initiatives, including the renewal of Affordable New York, a property tax break treasured by multifamily developers.“The governor has generally been a pro-growth pragmatist. The real estate industry has depended on that to keep attention and focus in a positive way on investment in our built environment,” said Kathryn Wylde, the president of the Partnership for New York City. “The governor’s troubles are a real threat to the pace and strength of our recovery.”Industry championWhen Cuomo, then state attorney general, ran for governor in 2010, he raised hundreds of thousands of dollars from some of the biggest names in the industry. That backing has run into the eight figures during his three terms — and has picked up when issues of particular import cross the governor’s desk.In 2012, the New York Times reported that a committee largely backed by real estate leaders had raised more than $12 million for Cuomo, making it the largest-spending advocacy organization in Albany. Some of those donors were pushing for a cap on local property taxes that the governor had proposed. Ahead of the renewal of Affordable New York’s predecessor 421a that year, Extell Development’s Gary Barnett and his wife donated $100,000 to Cuomo.It was Cuomo who set the terms for the renewal of 421a in 2017, ignoring a deal reached by Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Real Estate Board of New York. Instead, he tasked developers and construction unions with hashing out a compromise that included prevailing wage requirements. Though the resulting impasse led to the temporary expiration of the tax break, the governor could take a victory lap when the two sides agreed on Affordable New York.That tax break is slated to expire in 2022, and some Democrats are calling for its immediate repeal. Cuomo is expected to push for renewal, Wylde noted.“Generally, the governor brings a more practical and objective approach to all the issues that the advocates want decided on a more ideological basis,” the business leader said. “I think the decisions that have been made on facts and data may be lost in the politics if the governor and his staff are not able to manage some of those conversations effectively.”The governor’s Local Law 97 amendment would allow building owners to buy renewable energy credits outside the city to offset their properties’ greenhouse-gas emissions, potentially saving some of them millions of dollars. The proposal is backed by the Real Estate Board of New York.Jonathan Westin, director of the left-wing group New York Communities for Change, said there is now a better chance of removing the governor’s “poison pills” from the budget. Tenant advocates also hope the governor will permit some of their proposals to become law, including the cancellation of rent debt and a good cause eviction bill.“He has literally no legs to stand on anymore,” Westin declared.The pragmatistSome are skeptical that the allegations will end Cuomo’s career, though the situation underscores the danger for real estate of relying almost entirely on him — a strategy that backfired after Democrats captured the state Senate in 2018.“They bought in. They took the Kool-Aid. This guy is really good at his job,” one industry lobbyist said. “They were enamored. But [pinning your hopes on one person] is also shitty planning.”At the end of the day, the governor protects himself first. And when the time came in 2019 to renew the state’s rent stabilization law, Cuomo read the room: There were more tenants than landlords, and no Republicans to blame.Landlords were shocked by the tenant-friendly bill that emerged, and when they made an 11th-hour plea to Cuomo to step in, he instead embraced the reforms, calling them “the most sweeping, aggressive protections in state history.”In 2019 he also considered an annual pied-à-terre tax, although real estate interests ultimately persuaded lawmakers to instead raise transfer taxes on high-end home sales.One real estate source noted that Cuomo was only an ally when his interests aligned with the industry. In that circumstance, he was a powerful friend.“One day he is an ally; one day he’s an enemy. It all depends on his personal calculus,” the source said. “You don’t know if you are going to get the handshake or the knife at any moment with Andrew Cuomo.”The governor’s tenuous position has some worried about the state’s pandemic response. Another industry source also noted that distress at the state level is compounded by uncertainty over who will be elected mayor to lead the city’s recovery.“Stability in government is good for the real estate industry,” the source said. “It’s just not a good time for the government to be falling apart.”Georgia Kromrei contributed reporting.

first_img“Devinderjit Sivia was arrested, interviewed and bailed pending further inquiries. Having received the file from police and considering all the evidence, I have decided he will not face any charges in relation to the death of Steven Rawlings.” Dr Sivia’s father, Gurbaksh Sivia, told the press that his son was leading a normal life again and had returned back to work. He added, however, that the death of his friend would continue to be “on his mind.” Dr Devinder Sivia will not face any charges for the death of his friend and work colleague, fellow academic Professor Steven Rawlings, the Crown Prosecution Service has announced. Upon his arrest, Rawlings’ wife, Linda, stated that she did not believe Dr Sivia was responsible for the death, stating, ‘Steve and Devinder were best friends since college, and I believe this is a tragic accident… I do not believe that Steve’s death is murder and I do not believe Devinder should be tarnished in this way.”  Bajit Ubhey, chief crown prosecutor for Thames and Chiltern Crown Prosecution Service, released an official statement, stating, “Professor Rawlings died at the Oxfordshire home of a friend. A post-mortem examination was conducted, but was inconclusive and further tests were required.center_img She expressed her relief at the outcome of the investigation and said in a statement, “I am satisfied with the decision made by the Crown Prosecution Service that there will be no criminal charges brought.” Dr Sivia, a stipendiary lecturer in mathematics for sciences at Oxford, was subsequently arrested on suspicion of murder. He then spent 24 hours in custody before being released on police bail, pending further inquiries.  Professor Rawlings was found dead in January this year, aged 50, at a bungalow belonging to Dr Sivia.last_img read more
