2ft high retaining walls are made from layers of local schist slabs and the randomly spaced trees are Liriodendron tulipifera (Tulip Tree) and Quercus alba (White Oak).
I love the idea of a ‘turf proscenium floor’ and it looks like a great place to learn. I can imagine this kind of space would conform to the theories of design laid out in ‘A Pattern Language’ by Christopher Alexander…

what better way for America to remember 911 than by launching a new war in the Middle East. 

Should we leave ISIS to continue its rampage across Iraq and Syria?

if you think that American military might will stop them, then you clearly have no idea where that has gotten us in the past or how ISIS even began in the first place. the more the US exerts itself, the more resistance it will encounter. this is exactly why it’s failed in its last wars. ISIS wasn’t an issue until American invasion and then subsequent arming of other rebel factions in Syria. 

all this does is drag America into another conflict, one capable of setting off the entire region. it’s based on bullshit, yet again. 

Whatever the cause of the appearance of ISIS (the US military invasion, or a hodgepodge mix of religious fundamentalism, the Syrian civil war, and the US invasion), they still need to be stopped—even if it’s solely the fault of the United States.

ISIS is killing the Kurdish people, abducting women and children for rape and torture, targeting any other religious minority in the area (christians, muslims they perceive to be the “wrong kind” (see the Yazidi), etc.), and beheading journalists. What reason could you give that would convince me that the best solution to this conflict is to do nothing at all? Please title your response “Why we should allow ISIS to kill anyone it wants.”

now, did i say nothing should be done & that ISIS should continue to do as it does? no, that was something you implied from me saying American military intervention will do no more good than harm? i say that because it is merely a ploy by the US to return to the region more militarily & finally bring forces to bear against Syria. each time the US has done intervention, it leads to more fighting. 

that’s because people don’t want foreign forces there (again) & the US could care less about the wishes of the people. it is only looking for an excuse to bomb. 

it’s a war that needs to be fought by the people against an oppressive reactionary force. that means revolution against ISIS - just as much as it means revolution against the US.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

Penal law was not created by the common people, nor by the peasantry, nor by the proletariat, but entirely by the bourgeoisie as an important tactical weapon in this system of divisions which they wished to introduce.
