Dirk Meyer, who has headed the company since 2008, came to a mutual decision with the company to stand down, AMD said last night. The change will accelerate AMD’s ability to “establish market leadership and generate superior financial returns,” by Bruce Claflin, the chairman of AMD’s board of directors, said in a statement.Seifert will maintain his current duties as CFO and has asked not to be considered for the permanent CEO job, according to the company’s statement.AMD shares fell 4.1 per cent in extended trading to $8.81 from a close of $9.19.The departure of the 49-year-old Meyer, who headed the team that developed one of AMD’s most successful chips before becoming CEO in 2008, caught one Wall Street analyst by surprise.“I thought he did a good job getting the company into a different direction rather than trying to compete against Intel on a head to head basis,” said Kevin Cassidy, an analyst at Stifel Nicolaus.AMD is the second-largest maker of PC microprocessors, behind Intel, whose chips are used in more than 80 per cent of the world’s PCs.

Economy + Efficiency + Beauty. The plot and the programme of needs on which this architectural proposal is based establish very defined limits that require an accurate and rigorous response. The proposed project is strict in its development, but offers some unexpected elements that give the building a powerful and attractive identity.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!© Fernando AldaOn a precise geometric support, a housing puzzle has been composed in which each and every one of the pieces is valuable. Each one of them is a good house, composed by pieces of adequate size and surface and a system of strictly organized functional relations. The block, with a hundred dwellings set in only six vertical cores, achieves an optimal ratio between buildable and useful surface avoiding in any case renouncing double orientation and crossed ventilation.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaBut besides these values, which are directly translated into the rationality of the construction and the economy of the work, the project enjoys other elements that multiply the value of the building.  Unlike what is usual in small blocks like this one, the courtyard is a tree-lined place, visually attractive, sufficiently sunny in winter and humid and ventilated in summer. And on the roof, a platform for collective use offers privileged views over the surrounding landscape. Its facades, ordered and expressive, compose a powerful and attractive image. The building’s strategy, focused on rationality and efficiency, has been accredited by BREEAM, the sustainable construction certificate.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!Level 2-6Save this picture!© Fernando AldaProgram Organization + Surfaces. The strictly modulated geometry of the floor plan guarantees adequate surface standards and various furnishing possibilities in all parts of the house. Thus, each and every one of the bedrooms of all the houses allows a doble-bed room, two complete bathrooms, one of them en-suite in the master bedroom, all the kitchens allow in their furnishing a space for a breakfast table, and all the living rooms are well over 20 m2. This exact geometry also allows for a simple and economical structure that guarantees a garage without any footsteps of optimum use.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaBuilding Axonometry. The compact volume of the building incorporates, from bottom to top, a series of decisions that clearly improve the performance of a conventional block of this size.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThe garage floors, organized in half levels, guarantee a sufficient section of land for landscaping and planting trees on the ground floor. The access floor to the portals is depressed with respect to the street level, so that the ground floor homes behave in reality like first floor homes with respect to the patio.  Save this picture!© Fernando AldaThe one hundred homes are organised in a ring and their daytime areas look alternately outwards on their longer sides and, onto the tree-lined courtyard on their shorter sides. In this way, the houses that face the interior are 30 metres apart. The rooftop houses a swimming pool with a solarium and a shaded playground and barbecue area with extraordinary views of the Casa de Campo and the Sierra de Madrid.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessPERI Canteen / Studio ESW + Mühlich, Fink & PartnerSelected ProjectsRenzo Piano.

The 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist fire and garment workers today

first_imgMore than a century ago, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City was a notoriously anti-union company and the focus of several job actions and union organizing. This sweatshop was a death trap. On March 25, 1911, a horrific fire broke out there. Doors were blocked and fire escape exits were locked. The sole fire escape broke as workers fled. Firefighters’ ladders did not reach the top floors. The result of this needless tragedy: 146 workers died, 129 of them women ages 16 to 23.Company greed caused this avoidable disaster. Yet Triangle owners were acquitted in court for responsibility in the deaths of these precious young people. The value of each human life was assessed at only $75, paid to the grieving families who sued the company. This fire and terrible loss of life shocked workers and other progressives. Protests followed. Hundreds of thousands of people joined a funeral procession organized by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union on April 5, 1911. The Women’s Trade Union League demanded fire safety legislation. Due to pressure by labor activists, New York state investigated factory conditions and implemented workplace safety rules.This writer’s grandmother was a garment worker at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. I submitted the story below about her, along with a piece of fabric, for inclusion in historical archives about the Triangle fire. The fabric will be incorporated into a 320-foot-long, 2-foot-wide ribbon, comprised of hundreds of pieces of fabric memorializing the disaster victims. They were contributed and sewn together by participants in a collective ribbon-making session at Manhattan’s Fashion Institute of Technology on March 16-17.Initiated and coordinated by the Remember the Triangle Fire Coalition, the ribbon will then be cast in metal, forming the main element in the permanent memorial to be mounted on the Brown Building facade, site of the fire. The group organized the two-day commemorative event that included poetry, music, panel discussions and family memories.Immigrant, garment worker, activistThe following is the story about my grandmother: “My grandmother, Sophie Stoller Bubrick, and my grandfather, Paul Bubrick, arrived in the United States in 1907, having fled anti-Jewish pogroms in their country, Poland, which was then occupied by imperial Russia. “My grandmother worked at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory for several years after her arrival in New York.  Always an organizer and activist, she was the person to whom the workers came with grievances against sweatshop bosses, as she was not intimidated by anyone. “My grandmother participated in the March 8, 1908, march of 15,000 garment workers, mostly immigrants, through New York’s Lower East Side.  They marched for better working conditions in the sweatshops, an end to child labor, higher wages and the right to vote.“From November 1909, to February 1910, my grandmother participated in the ‘uprising of the 20,000,’ garment workers who struck against three companies, including Triangle, to oppose sweatshop conditions.  The strike was initiated by Clara Lemlich, age 19, a Russian Jewish immigrant, and backed by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. My grandmother had to walk from the Upper West Side to downtown Manhattan to join the picket lines, as she had no money for transportation costs.“Then in 1911 the Triangle fire raged, killing mainly Eastern European Jewish and Italian immigrant women and girls.  My grandmother did not go to work that day due to illness. But she lost many young friends.“My grandmother continued to be a fighter for workers’ rights and social justice for the remainder of her life.  Sophie Stoller Bubrick died in 1983 at the age of 98. It would have pleased her that the fabric used in her commemorative ribbon is red, as my grandmother was a proud communist.”Globalized capitalism: profits before safetyBangladesh garment workers protest on anniversary of horrendous building collapseThe days of on-the-job injuries are far from over. Conditions are hazardous for the 700,000 women agricultural workers in this country, exposed to pesticides, heat stroke, dehydration and sexual abuse. Factories, including poultry and meat-processing plants, are dangerous places to work, especially with speed-ups. Hospital, restaurant, hotel and domestic workers face harm, too.The Trump administration is only too glad to oblige corporate heads by rolling back hard-won worker safety protections in many industries. Peg Seminario, AFL-CIO director of occupational safety and health, says: “When you look at core worker protections and union rights, the administration and the president have been totally anti-worker.” (Politico, Sept. 3, 2018)Capitalist production is aimed at maximizing profits; workers’ well-being is not the bosses’ concern. This is evident in the super-exploitation of workers in the global garment industry where safety and health are disregarded until a horrible disaster unleashes workers’ fury and world outrage, sometimes bringing reforms.Conditions in Bangladesh’s garment industry are not so different from those at the Triangle factory. Windows, doors and exits are blocked. Fires occur with regularity, including one on March 4 in Dhaka, which injured eight people. The company, Anzir Apparel Ltd., has been allowed to operate by  so-called national inspection bodies, having repeatedly failed to address safety concerns, said the Clean Clothes Campaign on March 6.About 80 percent of the 4 million workers in Bangladesh’s 5,000 garment factories are women. They are among the world’s lowest paid workers, exploited by Western brands, who pay little for the products of their labor and care little for their health. The industry annually exports $30 billion worth of clothes to U.S. and European retailers. The deadliest garment industry catastrophe in history occurred in Dhaka on April 24, 2013, when Rana Plaza, an eight-story manufacturing complex, collapsed, killing 1,138 people, mostly women, and injuring 2,500, many permanently. Although some safety measures were implemented afterwards, they are continually endangered by pressure from profit-driven global brands and a pro-corporate government.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
