While teachers have a big job with their arms, an additional arming might provoke violence in a couple key ways; I’m in opposition to Trump’s call for arming teachers. Schools in California use Architecture to protect children with lock downs and fire lanes for police vehicles to have quick response in hostile situations. In conflict a teacher is often a mediator and a cop a suppressor and that is why the mediator should not have an armed response. Emergency response plans and routes are better investments than making a teacher responsible for a killing machine. The average school needs to have a sense of peace and guns do not provide that.
Some of the finest men in history have been at the desk in the White House as President of the United States of America. I hope that President Donald J Trump will be one of the best by keeping the country conservative and pursuing financial and domestic freedom.
It’s the divergent stream that defines the whisper of the air and the morning fog.
Founderies of sedimentary pull to follow a formal language regulated in a gravitated form.
To lost it is the way down and the source of life or a boundary of wild.
The embankment of a new season to the wild and the life of the urban metropolis.
Music; for this instance I define it as a word that fills a sentence. Musicians like James Blake and Phoria are defining post dub step vocal work with a progressive pop sound. If their music defined form and space their music emerges in a beautiful tradition of skill (does Phoria sample Monarch?). Meantime in the world, a contemporant culture is coming to terms with a business world in crisis due to hyper efficient corporations pulling money away from the populous and systems like Bitcoin creating new avenues for hiding money. Tradition has value, especially in the built world, but how will the future hold that value?
Something of significance like that of a hall filled with photos form a relic of time past or snapshot of the futures being made; a frame holds it in place and adds a unique character and distinction to the framed element. A frame can be lens to understanding a selection and urbanistically a frame is a controlling device that is best as a monolithic static element to define space, forming identity of space which people endear to. An urban frame holds history in its form and this evening I was looking at photos of development in the United Arab Emirates and the advance of beautiful islands beyond Palm Jumeira: The World archipelago. Sand and sea holds definable forms (within the tolerance of a highly fluid sandy soil) to create a desert paradise that holds both opulence and conservative thought within its boundaries. The future will be lonely if we move away from the public space with private augmented land to create a high threshold environment. The United States has many wealthy neighborhoods that very carefully sit within a fenceless realm to create social communities both direct and indirect. Counterpoint is Lindsay Lohan having her own Wilson volleyball and custom designed island will probably do her some good, but lets make communities rather than islands.
Besides my cuneiform Morse code for nothing significant except a place holder for Y’all, Shalom is a pleasant greeting and now there is a delicious new reasonably priced high end cuisine Jewish restaurant called Shalom Y’all in Southeast Portland. While I appreciate the convenience of MexiKosher’s kosher grille, the good classic brick walled eatery in the industrial district does good food. World peace might be one step closer due to a good Hebraic spice cleanse.
As the owner of theDailyTrotter trademark and the sole author of this blog it is often times expositional to my life. Consequence : my life is one of the most unique and consequent due to my observance of saving copulation for marriage and being in a field that bills for work that creates appeal :: advanced social means : respecting the values of people and the depth of character required to balance success. The intent of this blog is a para-Architecture installation that pushes a conservative narrative with progressive thoughts on hierarchy, value, depth of a soul’s discovery and the exploration of life in an unlimited poetic refrain. A perspective on truth that makes the peace in my heart so enviable is often displayed, while admitting that I don’t have it all figured out; but a consequent actions of learning truth hold those perspectives strong and refined. Sincerely, Seth Branham Trotter.
As an intern I had the privilege of working in a small Architecture studio of an Architect that is now a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. Their work focused on Education as a specialty and explored the integration of Small Learning Communities in Education – which integrates advanced classroom flexibility to develop learning styles of students. Today, I had the opportunity to attend a presentation and discussion of work by and inspired by the European Architect Herman Hertzberger as presented by Jerry Waters AIA LEED AP of Yost Grube Hall for his travels with the Van Evera Bailey Fellowship. As a fine quality presentation of some of the top learning environments of the progressive world it showed the value of exploratory learning and social cohesion. There can be many implications when translating the value of European learning institution into useful information for the design of American schools. Pedagogy in America deals with a more stratified brackets of education – in one learning institution Pre-Ivy League students walk next to basic English second language students. A socially cohesive school with diversity needs to provide privacy and spaces that have formality. For example, in my K-12 education through Corona Norco Unified School District there was an abundance of outdoor space that provided students with the opportunity for interim habitation and self expression with nearly indestructible materials like concrete masonry. The Pacific Northwest needs to navigate the habitation of interior space. Contrary to Hertzberger’s work, a formality in Education benefits the respective learning institution; structured space is still the most valuable learning environment because at minimum it dedicates a formal expression to the act of learning; which is something a sofa lounge, art exploration room or an Greek inspired amphitheater in the hall might not provide to a student. The integration of Education into socially advanced space is welcome but the tradition of Education will be the strongest tool to a powerful nation. Europe has the highest integration of cross culture / multi-ethnic education which has allowed for the advancement of social groups that self regulate people’s leadership skill; whereas America needs strong leaders. Formality is a key to value.
Some might look a world map and honestly assess the Western world as having a more pleasant vitruviuan form, but why is the Western world more significant in society than the East? Primarily there is a consequence of thought that is more firmly rooted in truth that has produced societies if influence and renown. The formative stages of history built minds and democratic value paired with well mixed French snobbery at appropriate times. The value of truth has defined a lasting significance in the West that won’t change.
As Pyeongchang snuck up on the center stage, it will be a landmark event for a quiet nation in Asia. The rising sun often gets to Japan first and a few sails might provide a shady coast across the Sea of Japan, but Korea has a presence with Samsung and a new tower in Los Angeles that accomplishes a nice addition to the skyline. It is nice to have smaller nations start to pay the Olympic bill and it will be great to continue on one of the world’s greatest traditions: world class athletes competing for Gold. After looking at a bit of communist history, by definition it is arguable that South Korea is partially Second World, a fact that a developing nation might not want to associate with. The world will see their presentation as host of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
