Torres de Colón: I must have hundreds of photos of this building. Without a shadow of a doubt, one of my favourites in Madrid.

I would love to visit it inside.... before it is converted into another ordinary skyscraper in the city. Pity.

 

Prisionero del Estado español: Jordi Cuixart ("Nunca podrán encarcelar las ideas")

Prisoner of the Spanish Estate: Jordi Cuixart ("Never will be able to imprison the thoughts")

 

ENGLISH

On 16 October 2017, Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sànchez were preventively jailed after the state attorney's accusation of sedition, a felony regulated by the article 544 and subsequents of the Spanish Criminal Code.

This sedition was allegedly committed when they organized massive protests on 20 September 2017 during Operation Anubis police raids to dismantle the framework of the 1 October Catalan independence referendum performed by the Spanish Civil Guard.They were accused of leading the protest of tens of thousands of people that surrounded the Catalan economy department heeding a call made by Òmnium Cultural and ANC. The investigating judge stated that the leaders did not call for "peaceful demonstration but to the protection of Catalan officials through 'massive citizens' mobilisations" and that Sànchez, on top of a vehicle, encouraged the demonstrators with expressions such as "no one goes home, it will be a long and intense night".Footage from that night, however, shows Cuixart and Sànchez calling off the protests at 23.00.A sentence of sedition can carry up to 15 years in prison.

Footage from that day, however, contradicts the version of the judge and shows that Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sànchez climbed on top of the cars to call off the protests.In July 2018, Cuixart was transferred to a prison in Catalonia.

 

CATALÀ

El setembre del 2017 Cuixart va ser acusat de sedició pel Ministeri Fiscal d'Espanya, arran de les concentracions de protesta en el transcurs de l'Operació Anubis. Segons la interlocutòria, la Fiscalia l'acusava a ell i a Jordi Sànchez, com a representants d'Òmnium Cultural i l'Assemblea, respectivament, d'organitzar convocatòries per a "protegir" els seus governants i per a "aturar la Guàrdia Civil", davant de les conselleries d'Economia, d'Exteriors, Governació, i davant de la seu del PSC i la CUP, així com a d'altres operatius a Bigues i Riells, a Sabadell i a les Franqueses del Vallès. La interlocutòria destacà especialment el seu rol durant la concentració davant d'Economia, mencionant destrosses a dos cotxes de la Guàrdia Civil i com els voluntaris d'aquestes organitzacions van impedir la tasca policial.[16]

Per aquests motius, Carmen Lamela Díaz, magistrada del Jutjat Central d'Instrucció número 3, va decretar presó preventiva sense fiança el 16 d'octubre del mateix any. La interlocutòria argumentava la presó preventiva per evitar el risc de fuga, de reiteració delictiva i d'obstrucció de la justícia penal. La interlocutòri fou durament criticada[i diversos mitjans van publicar proves que contradeien parts del text de la decisió judicial. Marcel Mauri, vicepresident d'Òmnium, va assumir les seves funcions a l'organització.

El 24 de novembre de 2017, el jutge Pablo Llarena va dictar un acte pel qual —després de sol·licitar informe a la jutgessa Lamela— mitjançant el qual acumulava la instrucció contra els principals líders independentistes, incloent-hi Jordi Sànchez i Jordi Cuixart.Mesos després, el juliol de 2018, fou traslladat de la Presó de Soto del Real al Centre Penitenciari de Lledoners, on continua a l'espera de judici. A la presó ha començat a practicar ioga i meditació. El 16 de juny de 2018 va ser reelegit president d'Òmnium. Va rebre 28.151 vots dels 28.183 sufragis emesos en l'assemblea de l'entitat.L'agost del mateix any fou nomenat president de la Federació Llull, entitat integrada per Òmnium Cultural, Acció Cultural del País Valencià i Obra Cultural Balear.

El auto , fue duramente criticadoy varios medios de comunicación publicaron pruebas que contradecían partes del texto de la decisión judicial. En más de una ocasión, Amnistía Internacional ha pedido su puesta en libertad inmediata, considerando que el cargo de sedición y el encarcelamiento preventivo de Cuixart y Sánchez son "excesivos", pero ha dejado que no los considera "presos políticos".En julio de 2018 fue trasladado de la Prisión de Soto del Real en el Centro Penitenciario de Lledoners, donde continúa a la espera de juicio. En noviembre de 2018 la Organización Mundial Contra la Tortura ha también pedido su puesta en libertad.

Desde su reclusión, ha hecho diferentes entrevistas en medios de comunicación, en las que reitera su apuesta por el diálogo, el ejercicio de los derechos fundamentales de manifestación y reunión, y reivindicando el derecho a la autodeterminación de los pueblos.

Aeropuerto Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suarez.

Más allá de la precisión funcional, la gran virtud de la nueva T4 es la calidad del ambiente interior. Para combatir la frialdad y el aspecto fabril común a muchos aeropuertos, Rogers y Lamela proponen una terminal increíblemente luminosa, donde la luz cenital es tamizada y se introduce hasta la planta inferior. Incluso las pasarelas que cruzan los “cañones de luz” se construyen en vidrio para no interrumpir el paso de la luz natural.

Los típicos acabados industriales son aquí sustituidos por el bambú en el intradós de cubierta y la piedra natural en los pavimentos. La elección del bambú responde a la flexibilidad del material para adaptarse a superficies de doble curvatura. Todos estos factores y algunos otros, como la variación cromática en las series de pilares, contribuyen a aportar calidez y aproximar el edificio a una escala más humana.

Aunque existen soluciones constructivas novedosas, este edificio no pretende hacer un alarde estructural. Al contrario, el elemento protagonista del espacio debe ser la cubierta, por lo que el objetivo fundamental es aligerar y reducir al mínimo todos los elementos estructurales.

Los pilares inclinados de sección variable se ramifican en forma de V con el fin de reducir a la mitad el número de apoyos y de no focalizar las perspectivas visuales. A su vez los “kipper-truss”, o montantes de fachada, son elementos que, gracias al pretensado, pueden soportar la acción del viento sobre el cerramiento y anclar la cubierta ante presiones y succiones, todo ello con secciones mínimas.

Un manto, o superficie alada, basada en un módulo que se extiende indefinidamente sobre una malla de soportes inclinados, captando y tamizando la luz natural para crear juegos de luces y sombras. Esta podría ser, en resumen, la idea que presidía la propuesta ganadora del concurso convocado en 1997. Cómo pudo materializarse constructivamente, nueve años después

Madrid-Barajas Airport Adolfo Suarez.

Beyond functional precision, the great virtue of the new T4 is the quality of the interior environment. In order to combat the coldness and the industrial aspect common to many airports, Rogers and Lamela propose an incredibly luminous terminal, where the overhead light is sieved and introduced to the lower floor. Even the walkways that cross the "light cannons" are built in glass so as not to interrupt the passage of natural light.

The typical industrial finishes are here replaced by the bamboo in the roofing cover and the natural stone in the pavements. The choice of bamboo responds to the flexibility of the material to accommodate double-curved surfaces. All these factors and some others, like the chromatic variation in the series of pillars, contribute to bring warmth and approach the building to a more human scale.

Although there are new constructive solutions, this building is not intended to make a structural boast. On the contrary, the main element of space must be the cover, so the fundamental objective is to lighten and minimize all structural elements.

The inclined pillars of variable section are branched in a V-shape in order to reduce the number of supports by half and not to focus the visual perspectives. In turn, "kipper-truss", or uprights, are elements that, thanks to the prestressing, can withstand the action of the wind on the enclosure and anchor the cover under pressures and suctions, all with minimal sections.

A mantle, or winged surface, based on a module that extends indefinitely on a mesh of inclined supports, capturing and sifting natural light to create sets of lights and shadows. This could be, in short, the idea that presided over the winning proposal of the competition convened in 1997. How it could materialize constructively, nine years later

Also known as Madrid airport's newest Terminal 4

 

Madrid airport has just opened a new terminal, the 4th.

This place is impressive. Architects (Richard Rogers & Antonio Lamela) have played with curves, shapes and color very nicely. It's a kind of organic.

Hialeah is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. With the population of 239,673 at the 2018 United States Census, Hialeah is the sixth-largest city in Florida. It is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census. It is located west-northwest of Miami, and is the only place in the county, other than Homestead, Florida, to have its own street grid numbered separately from the rest of the county (which is otherwise based on Miami Avenue at Flagler Street in downtown Miami, the county seat).

 

Hialeah has the highest percentage of Cuban and Cuban American residents of any city in the United States, at 73.37% of the population, making them a typical and prominent feature of the city's culture. All Hispanics make up 94.7% of the city's population, the second-highest percentage of a Hispanic population in a U.S. city with over 100,000 citizens.

 

Hialeah also has one of the largest Spanish-speaking communities in the country. In 2016, 96.3% of residents reported speaking Spanish at home, and the language is an important part of daily life in the city.

 

Hialeah is served by the Miami Metrorail at Okeechobee, Hialeah, and Tri-Rail/Metrorail Transfer stations. The Okeechobee and Hialeah stations serve primarily as park-and-ride commuter stations to commuters and residents going into Downtown Miami, and Tri-Rail station to Miami International Airport and north to West Palm Beach.

 

The city's name is most commonly attributed to Muskogee origin, "Haiyakpo" (prairie) and "hili" (pretty) combining in "Hialeah" to mean "pretty prairie". Alternatively, the word is of Seminole origin meaning "Upland Prairie". The city is located upon a large prairie between Biscayne Bay and the Everglades.

 

The Seminole interpretation of its name, "High Prairie", evokes a picture of the grassy plains used by the native Indians coming from the everglades to dock their canoes and display their wares for the newcomers of Miami. This "high prairie" caught the eye of pioneer aviator Glenn Curtiss and Missouri cattleman James H. Bright in 1921. Together, they developed not only the town of Hialeah but also Hialeah Park Race Track.

 

In the early "Roaring '20s", Hialeah produced significant entertainment contributions. Sporting included the Spanish sport of jai alai and greyhound racing, and media included silent movies like D.W. Griffith's The White Rose which was made at the Miami Movie Studios located in Hialeah. However, the 1926 Miami hurricane brought many of these things to an end.

 

In the years since its incorporation in 1925, many historical events and people have been associated with Hialeah. The opening of the horse racing course at Hialeah Park Race Track in 1925 (which was nicknamed the "Grand Dame") received more coverage in the Miami media than any other sporting event in the history of Dade County up to that time and since then there have been countless horse racing histories played out at the world-famous 220-acre (0.89 km2) park.[6] It was considered one of the most grand of thoroughbred horse racing parks with its majestic Mediterranean style architecture and was considered the Jewel of Hialeah at the time.

 

The park's grandeur has attracted millions, included among them are names known around the world such as the Kennedy family, Harry Truman, General Omar Bradley, Winston Churchill, and J.P. Morgan. The Hialeah Park Race Track also holds the dual distinction of being an Audubon Bird Sanctuary due to its famous pink flamingos and being listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The famous aviator Amelia Earhart in 1937 said her final good-byes to the continental U.S. from Hialeah as she left on her ill-fated flight around the world in 1937.

 

While Hialeah was once envisioned as a playground for the elite, Cuban exiles, fleeing Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution as well as World War II veterans and city planners transformed the city into a working-class community. Hialeah historian Patricia Fernández-Kelly explained "It became an affordable Eden." She further describes the city as "a place where different groups have left their imprint while trying to create a sample of what life should be like." Several waves of Cuban exiles, starting after the Cuban Revolution in 1959 and continuing through to the Freedom Flights from 1965 to 1973, the Mariel boatlift in 1980, and the Balseros or boat people of the late 1990s, created what at least one expert has considered the most economically successful immigrant enclave in U.S. history as Hialeah is the only American industrial city that continues to grow.

 

From a population of 1,500 in 1925, Hialeah has grown at a rate faster than most of the 10 larger cities in the state of Florida since the 1960s and holds the rank of Florida's fifth-largest city, with more than 224,000 residents. The city is also one of the largest employers in Dade County.

 

In January 2009, Forbes magazine listed Hialeah as one of the most boring cities in the United States citing the city's large population and anonymity in the national media.

The Hialeah Park Race Track (also known as the Miami Jockey Club or Hialeah Race Track or Hialeah Park) is a historic racetrack in Hialeah, Florida. Its site covers 40 square blocks of central-east side Hialeah from Palm Avenue east to East 4th Avenue, and from East 22nd Street on the south to East 32nd Street on the north. On March 5, 1979, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Another listing for it was added in 1988. The Hialeah Park Race Track is served by the Miami Metrorail at the Hialeah Station at Palm Avenue and East 21st Street.

 

The Hialeah Park Race Track is one of the oldest existing recreational facilities in southern Florida. Originally opened in 1922 by aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss and his partner, Missouri cattleman James H. Bright, as part of their development of the town of Hialeah, Florida, Hialeah Park opened as a greyhound racing track operated by the Miami Kennel Club. The Miami Jockey Club launched Hialeah's Thoroughbred horse racing track on January 25, 1925. The facility was severely damaged by the 1926 hurricane and in 1930 was sold to Philadelphia horseman Joseph E. Widener. With Kentucky horseman Col. Edward R. Bradley as an investor, Widener hired architect Lester W. Geisler to design a complete new grandstand and Renaissance Revival clubhouse facilities along with landscaped gardens of native flora and fauna and a lake in the infield that Widener stocked with flamingos. Hailed as one of the most beautiful racetracks in the world, Hialeah Park officially opened on January 14, 1932. An Australian totalisator for accepting parimutuel betting was the first to be installed in America. The park became so famous for its flamingo flocks that it has been officially designated a sanctuary for the American Flamingo by the Audubon Society.

 

In 1987, the horse-racing movie Let It Ride, with Richard Dreyfuss, Terri Garr, and Jennifer Tilly, had most of its principal film photography shot at Hialeah Park. Hialeah Park also made an appearance in Public Enemies but most scenes were shot in the Midwest. The Champ (1979) with Jon Voight, Faye Dunaway and Ricky Schroder filmed scenes on Flamingo Day, 3/4/78.

 

Hialeah Park Racetrack was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 2, 1979. On January 12, 1988, the property was determined eligible for designation as a National Historic Landmark by the Secretary of the Interior.

 

In 2001, Hialeah Park stopped hosting racing after a change in state law kept it from having exclusive dates in its competition with Gulfstream Park and Calder Race Course. Consequently, owner John Brunetti closed Hialeah Park to the public. The filly Cheeky Miss won the last thoroughbred race run at Hialeah on May 22, 2001. Among the races the track hosted was the appropriately named Flamingo Stakes, an important stepping stone to the Kentucky Derby for 3-year-old horses, and the once prestigious Widener Handicap, a major race for horses four years and older that was the East Coast counterpart to the Santa Anita Handicap in California. Important annual stakes races that were run annually until 2001 were:

 

Flamingo Stakes

Widener Handicap

Bahamas Stakes

Black Helen Handicap

Bougainvillea Handicap

Everglades Stakes

Hialeah Turf Cup Handicap

Hibiscus Stakes

McLennan Handicap

Royal Palm Handicap

Seminole Handicap

 

n 2004, the Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering revoked Hialeah's thoroughbred permit because it did not hold races for the previous two years. As of 2013, its facilities remain intact except for the stables, which were demolished in early 2007.[3] In 2006, the abandoned Hialeah Park site was considered to be a possible location for a new Florida Marlins Ballpark.

 

On March 2009, it was announced that track owner John Brunetti was awarded a racing permit. Design firm EwingCole was selected to develop a master plan for renovation and further development, including a new casino. A $40–$90 million restoration project was begun in mid-2009.

 

On May 7, 2009 the Florida legislature agreed to a deal with the Seminole Tribe of Florida that allowed Hialeah Park to operate slot machines and run Quarter Horse races.[6] The historic racetrack reopened on November 28, 2009 but only for quarter horse races. The park installed slot machines in January 2010 as part of a deal to allow for two calendar seasons of racing. The races ran until February 2, 2010. Only a portion of the park has been restored and an additional $30 million will be needed to complete this first phase of the project. The full transformation was expected to cost $1 billion since the plan included a complete redevelopment of the surrounding area including the construction of an entertainment complex to include a hotel, restaurants, casinos, stores and a theater. On June 2010 concerns were raised over the preservation of Hialeah Park's historical status as the planned development threatened to hurt Hialeah Park's potential as a National Historic Landmark.

 

On August 14, 2013, Brunetti opened a new casino at Hialeah Park and continues to host winter Quarter Horse racing meets (using temporary stables)

In January 2009, Forbes magazine listed Hialeah as one of the most boring cities in the United States citing the city's large population and anonymity in the national media.

Torres de Colón, or Columbus Towers (formerly Jerez Towers), Plaza de Colón, Madrid, as seen from Paseo de Recoletos. This twin-tower highrise (116 meters high) office building was built in 1976 to the design by the architect Antonio Lamela. Due to the structure that binds the two towers at the top, the building has a nickname ‘The Plug’. Located at the geographic center of the Iberian Peninsula, Madrid is the capital and the largest city of Spain, Unlike other prominent Spanish cities, though, Madrid took its time rising to prominence. By far not as ancient as the likes of Cadiz, Seville or Granada, Madrid’s documented history only dates back to the Muslim era when it was a peripheral town of Al-Andalus at its border with kingdoms of León and Castile, a military stronghold with a fortress built by Emir Muhammad I of Córdoba in the late 9th century. Its primary role was to protect Toledo from Christian raids. When both Toledo and Madrid were conquered by Alfonso XI of Castile in 1085, Madrid’s fortunes improved. Not exposed to a military threat any longer, Madrid gradually grew in importance. In 1309, the Courts of Castile were joined in Madrid under Ferdinand IV, making the city the center of the early phases of the Spanish unification process. Nevertheless, the population of Madrid was a tiny 4,000 by 1530. In 1561, Valladolid, the then capital, suffered from a fire prompting King Philip II to relocate the capital. Although Lisbon looked like an obvious choice at the time, Philip II opted for Madrid as a permanent residence for himself, his wife Elisabeth of Valois and their courts. The choice was all the more unlikely because Madrid does not possess mineral deposits or other natural wealth, nor was it ever a destination of pilgrimages, although its patron saint, San Isidro, enjoys the all-but-unique distinction of having been married to another saint. Thanks to this, however, Madrid became the political center of the monarchy and has remained the capital of Spain ever since (with the exception of a short period from 1601 to 1606). The following decades saw the city evolve rapidly, with geniuses like as Miguel de Cervantes, Diego Velázquez, Francisco de Quevedo and Lope de Vega all helping the cause. The city especially thrived under King Charles III who transformed the city’s architecture and infrastructure. In 1706, during the War of the Spanish Succession, Madrid was occupied by a Portuguese army and a century later, in 1808, the city was captured by Napoleon’s troops which led to the popular uprising. Another period of growth started in the middle of the 19th century under Isabella II, who had the city walls demolished to allow for the expansion of the city. Nowadays, Madrid is an influential global metropolis with advanced political and educational institutions, well-developed industry, infrastructure, finance, science, media, fashion, sports (most notable Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid football clubs), culture, arts scene (Prado Museum a standout) and a vibrant night life [May 28, 2017].

Hialeah is a city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. With the population of 239,673 at the 2018 United States Census, Hialeah is the sixth-largest city in Florida. It is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census. It is located west-northwest of Miami, and is the only place in the county, other than Homestead, Florida, to have its own street grid numbered separately from the rest of the county (which is otherwise based on Miami Avenue at Flagler Street in downtown Miami, the county seat).

 

Hialeah has the highest percentage of Cuban and Cuban American residents of any city in the United States, at 73.37% of the population, making them a typical and prominent feature of the city's culture. All Hispanics make up 94.7% of the city's population, the second-highest percentage of a Hispanic population in a U.S. city with over 100,000 citizens.

 

Hialeah also has one of the largest Spanish-speaking communities in the country. In 2016, 96.3% of residents reported speaking Spanish at home, and the language is an important part of daily life in the city.

 

Hialeah is served by the Miami Metrorail at Okeechobee, Hialeah, and Tri-Rail/Metrorail Transfer stations. The Okeechobee and Hialeah stations serve primarily as park-and-ride commuter stations to commuters and residents going into Downtown Miami, and Tri-Rail station to Miami International Airport and north to West Palm Beach.

 

The city's name is most commonly attributed to Muskogee origin, "Haiyakpo" (prairie) and "hili" (pretty) combining in "Hialeah" to mean "pretty prairie". Alternatively, the word is of Seminole origin meaning "Upland Prairie". The city is located upon a large prairie between Biscayne Bay and the Everglades.

 

The Seminole interpretation of its name, "High Prairie", evokes a picture of the grassy plains used by the native Indians coming from the everglades to dock their canoes and display their wares for the newcomers of Miami. This "high prairie" caught the eye of pioneer aviator Glenn Curtiss and Missouri cattleman James H. Bright in 1921. Together, they developed not only the town of Hialeah but also Hialeah Park Race Track.

 

In the early "Roaring '20s", Hialeah produced significant entertainment contributions. Sporting included the Spanish sport of jai alai and greyhound racing, and media included silent movies like D.W. Griffith's The White Rose which was made at the Miami Movie Studios located in Hialeah. However, the 1926 Miami hurricane brought many of these things to an end.

 

In the years since its incorporation in 1925, many historical events and people have been associated with Hialeah. The opening of the horse racing course at Hialeah Park Race Track in 1925 (which was nicknamed the "Grand Dame") received more coverage in the Miami media than any other sporting event in the history of Dade County up to that time and since then there have been countless horse racing histories played out at the world-famous 220-acre (0.89 km2) park.[6] It was considered one of the most grand of thoroughbred horse racing parks with its majestic Mediterranean style architecture and was considered the Jewel of Hialeah at the time.

 

The park's grandeur has attracted millions, included among them are names known around the world such as the Kennedy family, Harry Truman, General Omar Bradley, Winston Churchill, and J.P. Morgan. The Hialeah Park Race Track also holds the dual distinction of being an Audubon Bird Sanctuary due to its famous pink flamingos and being listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The famous aviator Amelia Earhart in 1937 said her final good-byes to the continental U.S. from Hialeah as she left on her ill-fated flight around the world in 1937.

 

While Hialeah was once envisioned as a playground for the elite, Cuban exiles, fleeing Fidel Castro's 1959 revolution as well as World War II veterans and city planners transformed the city into a working-class community. Hialeah historian Patricia Fernández-Kelly explained "It became an affordable Eden." She further describes the city as "a place where different groups have left their imprint while trying to create a sample of what life should be like." Several waves of Cuban exiles, starting after the Cuban Revolution in 1959 and continuing through to the Freedom Flights from 1965 to 1973, the Mariel boatlift in 1980, and the Balseros or boat people of the late 1990s, created what at least one expert has considered the most economically successful immigrant enclave in U.S. history as Hialeah is the only American industrial city that continues to grow.

I'm gonna tell you something you don't want to hear

I'm gonna show you where it's dark, but have no fear
