Birchcliff and AltaGas announce new arrangement at Gordondale processing facility

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. — Birchcliff Energy Ltd. and AltaGas Ltd. made a joint announcement Tuesday, saying they have entered into a long-term natural gas processing arrangement at AltaGas’ deep-cut sour gas processing facility in Gordondale.The new arrangement, which will last for at least 15 years, will go into effect retroactive to January 1st, 2018 and will replace existing processing arrangements at the facility. Under the Processing Arrangement, Birchcliff is being provided with up to 120 million cubic feet per day of processing on a firm-service basis, with a take-or-pay obligation of 100 million cubic feet per day.“This new arrangement with AltaGas provides long-term natural gas processing and will reduce our fees at the Gordondale Facility,” said Birchcliff President and CEO Jeff Tonken. “An added benefit of this arrangement for Birchcliff is that we will not have to incur significant capital to build our own deep-cut facility at Birchcliff’s natural gas processing plant in Pouce Coupe, Alberta. We had previously commenced the planning and initial work to further expand the processing capacity of our Pouce Coupe gas plant by 150 MMcf/d to 490 MMcf/d (Phase VII) and by 100 MMcf/d to 590 MMcf/d (Phase VIII). In light of this new processing arrangement, we currently have no plans to proceed with Phases VII or VIII.” “The new arrangement with Birchcliff is a significant win for both parties,” said David Harris, President and Chief Executive Officer of AltaGas. “The Processing Arrangement allows us to maximize the long-term value and returns from the Gordondale Facility, which is one of our key assets. The agreement fills the existing capacity at the Gordondale Facility and significantly enhances the potential to flow third-party volumes through the facility and to grow those volumes, allowing us to eventually optimize the facility and bring the operating capacity up to 150 MMcf/d, while providing lower fees for Birchcliff. The long-term commitment from Birchcliff, potential for third-party volumes and the strategic proximity of this asset to the liquid-rich Montney fairway further strengthens our plans around the future expansion of the Gordondale Facility. In addition, AltaGas will also benefit from growing propane volumes which will be dedicated to our Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal as part of the commercial arrangements.”last_img read more

Photo: WIPO/Emmanuel Berrod “Let’s get this ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered (and) I’m Yours’,” Mr. Wonder said to the tune of one of his biggest hits in a video statement to delegates at the forum, convened by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). “Do this and I will come to Marrakesh and we will celebrate together,” added the legendary award-winning singer and songwriter, who has been blind since shortly after birth.A signed treaty will improve access for the blind, visually impaired, and print disabled to published works in formats such as Braille, large print text and audio books, according to a news release issued by the Geneva-based WIPO. The beneficiaries will have better access to novels, textbooks and other material that they can use for education and enjoyment.“We stand at the cusp of a momentous time in history,” said Mr. Wonder. “All of you – great minds representing governments around the world – have the opportunity to right a wrong. You are in the final sprint of a marathon that has spanned many years, but time is short and there is still much more work to be done to complete this historic treaty.”WIPO Director General Francis Gurry said the objective of the conference is a relatively simple and straightforward one – “to alleviate the book famine that causes over 300 million visually impaired persons, the majority of them in developing countries, to be excluded from access to over 90 per cent of published works.” ‹ › That objective, he said, would be achieved by establishing an enabling legal framework that will facilitate the production of accessible formats and their exchange across borders.“Negotiators have the task of, on the one hand, designing a workable system that will ensure that accessible formats can be produced and exchanged across borders around the world in a simple and easy manner and, on the other hand, providing assurances to authors and publishers that that system will not expose their assets to misuse in parallel markets that are not intended to serve the visually impaired and the print disabled. Their success in finding the right balance will ensure the success of the treaty.”Negotiators have already made great headway in several negotiating sessions since the first proposals for a draft treaty were originally submitted in May 2009.A WIPO survey in 2006 found that fewer than 60 countries have limitations and exceptions clauses in their copyright laws that make special provision for visually impaired persons, for example, for Braille, large print or digitized audio versions of copyrighted texts.In 2010, Mr. Wonder – a strong supporter of the treaty – appealed to negotiators to speed up their work “to end the information deprivation that continues to keep the visually impaired in the dark,” and urged negotiators to put ideological differences aside.“The time has come. Today. Not tomorrow. Today. The world’s blind and visually impaired are counting on you. I am counting on you. Don’t let me down. But most of all, please don’t let them down. This is our legacy. Your gift to future generations,” he urged. “So, let us at last finalize this new agreement and open the doors to the world’s written treasures, moving toward a future where there are no barriers to the expansion of knowledge and the enjoyment of culture. Even for the visually impaired.” The two-week Diplomatic Conference to Conclude a Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works by Visually Impaired Persons and Persons with Print Disabilities will conclude on 28 June. read more

MineARC CoalSAFE refuge chamber now MSHAapproved

first_imgMineARC Systems has received MSHA Part 7 approval for its CS-24-77120-CB CoalSAFE refuge alternative. The CoalSAFE is rated for occupancies up to 24 persons. Specifically, MSHA approval has been granted on the breathable air (oxygen system) and harmful gas removal (MARCis unit) components. The latter is MineARC’s intrinsically safe scrubbing and air conditioning system that maintains the refuge chamber’s internal environment by continually removing the buildup of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and heat generated by the miners as they sit safely inside waiting for rescue. MSHA’s approval letter to MineARC states, “The design of this harmful gas removal component (the MARCis) meets the applicable requirements of Title 30 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 7.508 (30CFR Section 7.508).” MineARC Systems America General Manager James Rau, “Achieving MSHA approval is a significant step for MineARC.  Customers can purchase from us with the confidence that our refuges meet the highest global safety standards in coal mining, relating to refuge alternatives.”“There is a real sense of achievement at MineARC with the MARCis unit being the first cooling system approved for coal mine refuge alternatives. Testing has shown that the refuge can operate in high temperatures while still maintaining the 95°F internal apparent temperature threshold.” MSHA’s 30CFR Section 7.508, commonly known as MSHA ‘Final Rule’ was first introduced into US mining legislation in 2008 following calls for a more stringent set of requirements to be placed on refuge chamber manufacturers and coal mines. To comply with the new approvals, MineARC implemented a state of the art production process including: a purpose built oxygen clean room, comprehensive component tracking, and detailed standard operating procedures. Existing customer units are currently being returned to MineARC and upgraded to comply with the new approvals.last_img read more

Staff given annual leave to enjoy Game of Thrones premiere

first_imgSomething for the weekend: Are you planning to stay up through Sunday night to watch the US season six premiere of Game of Thrones?The episode airs in the US at 9pm Eastern time on Sunday 24 April, which means UK fans wanting to take a first look will need to remain awake until 2am on Monday 25 April.For employees at creative technology organisation +rehabstudio this won’t pose a problem. Staff in its London and Belfast offices are being given an additional half day of holiday so that they can watch the episode as it airs in the US and still come into work on Monday afternoon refreshed after a solid night’s sleep.The organisation has also spared a thought for those who prefer to wait for the UK premiere of the show on Monday night, at the more reasonable hour of 9pm, by requesting that its US staff refrain from sharing spoilers about the show on the intranet until it has aired in the UK.It seems that +rehabstudio is ahead of the game; almost a third (32%) of those planning to watch the Game of Thrones season six premiere intend to stay up into the early hours of the morning to watch the episode as it airs in America, according to research by Lottoland.Its survey of 2,384 UK office-based employees also found that 9% of respondents plan to take Monday 25 April off work because of the premiere, 53% of which have booked annual leave and 47% of which intend to phone in sick.Jon Snow might know nothing, but at EB HQ we’re pretty sure +rehabstudio knows a thing or two about ensuring its employees get their popular culture fix.last_img read more

Personnel Committee Defers Action on Consolidation Plan for Commissaries Exchanges

first_imgA plan to consolidate the military’s commissary and exchange system is not included in the portion of the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill marked up by the House Armed Services’ Military Personnel Subcommittee on Thursday.Chairman Joe Heck (R-Nev.) said the panel is not yet ready to address the consolidation plan, which the Military Compensation and Retirement Modernization Commission recommended in January. Lawmakers are awaiting results from a contractor study mandated by Congress in last year’s authorization bill, reported Military Times. The study is due in September.The panel also acted to restore funds to the Defense Commissary Agency after the Pentagon proposed to slash funding for commissaries by $322 million in FY 2016. The agency’s budget would be set at $1.3 billion instead of $1.15 billion, under the subcommittee’s draft bill.The department’s budget calls for U.S. commissaries to be operated more like a business, forcing the stores to reduce customer discounts, as well as trim staff, store hours and the days stores are open. The subcommittee, however, rebuffed DOD’s request for legislation allowing commissaries to raise prices in order to pay for some of their operating costs, according to the story.Although the additional funding recommended for the Defense Commissary Agency would allow military groceries to avoid reducing store hours and days of operation, DOD still has the authority to implement such cost-cutting measures without lawmakers’ approval.The subcommittee proposed more far-reaching changes to the military retirement system by incorporating a 401(k)-style plan to benefit personnel who serve fewer than 20 years.

Trump Assails Witch Hunt After Naming Of Special Counsel

first_img Share President Donald Trump lashed out at the appointment of a special counsel to investigate allegations that his campaign collaborated with Russia to sway the 2016 election, tweeting Thursday that it is “the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”The Justice Department on Wednesday appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the investigation. Mueller will have sweeping powers and the authority to prosecute any crimes he uncovers.The surprise announcement to hand the probe over to Mueller, a lawman who garners deep bipartisan respect, was a striking shift for Trump’s Justice Department, which had resisted increasingly loud calls from Democrats for an outside prosecutor. It immediately escalated the legal stakes — and the potential political damage — for a president who has tried to dismiss the matter as partisan witch hunt and a “hoax.”In another Twitter post Thursday, Trump said: “With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel (sic) appointed!” He did not provide examples or evidence of any alleged “illegal acts.” Trump later deleted and retweeted that statement to correct the spelling of “counsel.”The announcement, the latest in the shock-a-day Washington saga, was made by deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The White House counsel’s office was alerted only after the order appointing Mueller was signed, said a senior White House official, who was not authorized to speak publicly by name and commented only on condition of anonymity.In a written statement, Trump insisted anew there were no nefarious ties between his campaign and Russia.“A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know — there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity,” he declared. “I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.”Mueller’s broad mandate gives him not only oversight of the Russia probe, but also “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” That would surely include Trump’s firing last week of FBI Director James Comey.Mueller, a former federal prosecutor at the Justice Department, was confirmed as FBI director days before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that would ultimately shape his tenure. The FBI’s counterterror mission was elevated in those years, as the U.S. intelligence agencies adjusted to better position America to prevent another attack of such magnitude. He was so valued that President Barack Obama asked him to stay on two years longer than his 10-year term.Comey succeeded him, appointed by Obama.Mueller was appointed Wednesday by Rosenstein, who had faced criticism as the author of a memo that preceded Comey’s firing. Rosenstein said the appointment was “necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome.”Republicans have largely stood behind Trump in the first months of his presidency as the FBI and congressional investigations into Russia’s election meddling intensified. But GOP lawmakers have grown increasingly anxious since Trump fired Comey, who had been leading the bureau’s probe — and after Comey associates said he had notes from a meeting in which Trump asked him to shut down the investigation into the Russia ties of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.Reactions from Congress were mainly positive.House Speaker Paul Ryan said the appointment was consistent with his goal of ensuring that “thorough and independent investigations are allowed to follow the facts wherever they may lead.”Republican Jason Chaffetz of Utah, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Mueller was a “great selection. Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted.”And not a moment too soon, Democrats said.“I believe Mueller will be independent, he will be thorough and he will be fair and he’s not going to be easily swayed,” said Elijah Cummings of Maryland, top Democrat on the oversight panel. Cummings has vigorously urged such an appointment, suggesting it could lead to accusations of obstruction of justice.In the 1990s, Democrats complained that independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated President Bill Clinton, overstepped his authority.The latest political storm, coupled with the still-potent fallout from Trump’s recent disclosure of classified information to Russian diplomats at the White House, has overshadowed all else in the capital and beyond. Stocks fell sharply on Wall Street Wednesday as investors worried the latest turmoil in Washington could hinder Trump’s pro-business agendaTrump has repeatedly slammed the FBI and congressional investigations as a “hoax” and blamed disgruntled officials at intelligence agencies for leaking information related to the probes. During a commencement address Wednesday at the Coast Guard Academy, he complained bitterly about criticism he’s faced.“No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly,” he said. “You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams. … I guess that’s why we won. Adversity makes you stronger. Don’t give in, don’t back down. … And the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face.”No less a commentator than Russia’s Vladimir Putin called the dramatic charges swirling around Trump evidence of “political schizophrenia spreading in the U.S.” He offered to furnish a “record” of the Trump-diplomats meeting in the Oval Office if the White House desired it.There was no word on what that record might entail, a question many were likely to raise in light of Trump’s recent warning to Comey that he had “better hope” there were no tapes of a discussion they’d had.The White House has disputed Comey’s account of his February conversation with Trump concerning Flynn but has not offered specifics. Several congressional Republicans said Wednesday that if Trump did suggest that Comey “let this go” regarding Flynn’s Russian contacts, it was probably just a joke, light banter.Both of the explosive revelations — that the president pressed his FBI director to drop a federal investigation before later firing him, and that he disclosed classified information to senior Russian officials — came from anonymous sources, and the White House was quick to denounce the leaks and deny any impropriety. Trump aides said he never tried to squelch the Flynn investigation nor made inappropriate disclosures to the Russians.On Capitol Hill, Comey was clearly the man in demand, with three committees working to seat him at their witness tables soon, two in the Senate and one in the House.The Senate intelligence committee also asked acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe to turn over any notes Comey might have made regarding discussions he had with White House or Justice Department officials about Russia’s efforts to influence the election.McCabe had other matters on his mind, too. He was one of four potential candidates to lead the FBI that Trump was interviewing. The others were former Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating and Richard McFeely, a former top FBI official.Trump is preparing to leave town Friday on his first foreign trip, and aides have been hopeful the journey will be a chance for the administration to get back on track after weeks of chaos and distractions.Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., speculated Trump was probably happy to get out of town — “and a lot of us are glad he’s leaving for a few days.”His advice to the president: “Stay disciplined, stay focused and deliver on the world stage.”Separately, McClatchy News Service reported Wednesday that before Trump took office, Flynn had blocked an Obama administration military plan, opposed by Turkey, against the Islamic State group. Unknown to the Obama administration, Flynn had been paid more than $500,000 to advocate for Turkey’s interests.McClatchy says Flynn declined to OK a request from Obama officials to approve a military operation involving the IS stronghold of Raqqa, effectively delaying the operation. The Trump team had been asked since the operation was likely to be carried out after Trump took office. Turkey has long opposed U.S. forces working with Kurdish forces.The plan was eventually approved by the Trump administration, but not until after Flynn had been fired.last_img read more

For those of you not familiar with that concept, the uncanny valley is a term, first coined by researchers in Japan, that explains the innate human ability to know when a humanoid robot is just not human, a creepy feeling. A new generation of ultra-realistic robots may make these distinctions harder to make. Japan unveils humanoid robot that laughs and smiles (w/ Video) Mechnical test of Geminoid DK Geminoid DK is not the first attempt to make human-like robots, known as androids, that have created successful results. Another robot in the Geminoid family, the Geminoid-F is capable of mimicking human facial expressions and even laughing. Other bots, such as the HRP-4 have learned to mimic human expressions and sound while singing. Explore further More information: geminoid.dk/via IEEE (thanks Erico Guizzo for the tip) First test of the Geminoid DK. The bot will stay in Japan for a while, to finish testing with its human look-a-like, and then it will be shipped to Denmark to live in a special lab designed just for it. Hopefully, the right one gets the seat on the plane. The Geminoid DK will then be used to research “emotional affordances” in human-robot interaction, with a specific focus on looking at the cultural differences in human perception of robots. The latest robot in the family of ultra-realistic androids, called the Geminoid series, is so realistic that it can actually be mistaken for the person it was designed to look like. The new bot, dubbed the Geminoid DK, was was created by robotics firm Kokoro in Tokyo and is now being housed at Japan’s Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International in Nara. The robot was designed to look like Associate Professor Henrik Scharfe of Aalborg University in Denmark. Why he wanted an exact robot duplicate of himself no one exactly knows, but the resemblance is uncanny. © 2010 PhysOrg.com This is from the first test of the Geminoid.

Twitter Now Lets You Direct Message Anyone You Want

first_img The microblogging service has tweaked its private messaging service so that users can be contacted by people and companies they do not follow.Twitter, a service focused on public conversations, is making it easier for users to receive private messages from anyone and everyone.Users who opt into the new program can get direct messages from millions of users, in theory, reversing a policy that limited communication to people who followed each other on Twitter.The change, announced Monday, is intended to make Twitter more of a destination for private chats amid the rapid rise of messaging services such as WhatsApp, which Facebook acquired last year for $19 billion and has 800 million users worldwide. Twitter is under intense investor pressure to ramp up user growth, which has trailed off in recent quarters and was at 288 million at the end of the fourth quarter.With the latest adjustment, Twitter users who change their settings to allow direct messages from everyone will be able to be contacted privately by a far bigger universe of people about, for example, job offers and business ideas. Furthermore, companies, political candidates, charities, and celebrities will be able to contact people with marketing messages and receive direct responses.“We hope these changes help you connect more easily — and directly — on Twitter with the people, causes and businesses you care about most,” the social media site said in a blog post.Comcast, for instance, will now be able to field customer service complaints privately via Twitter. Previously, this sort of communication would have been impractical, as Comcast would have had to be connected to each of its customers in order to receive those messages.The upgrade also helps to eliminate the frequent Twitter annoyance of people posting public tweets asking someone to follow them so they can start a private conversation.To combat the possibility of spam or stalking, Twitter says its users will be able to block anyone they choose.To combat the possibility of spam or stalking, Twitter says its users will be able to block anyone they choose. They can also do the same by deleting a string of messages from someone who is not a mutual connection. Facebook has dealt with the problem by creating a separate inbox for messages from people who are not friends that relatively few of its users ever check.Two years ago, Twitter tested a feature for sending direct messages to everyone, but that test was limited and will only now start rolling out to all of the service’s users.

Cuban capitol building is renovation in marble and symbolism

first_imgHAVANA — Like any revolution, the one that upended this island 56 years ago tried to break with the past by burying symbols of the old political order.None stood larger than the resplendent Cuban capitol building, “El Capitolio,” that towers over the heart of Old Havana and was inspired by the U.S. Capitol in Washington. To Fidel Castro and his rebel followers, the Capitolio’s opulence and grandeur reeked of waste and wannabe Americanism.Castro took power in 1959 and dissolved Congress, emptying the Capitolio’s soaring marble and granite halls. The building, too, was demoted, repurposed as the new headquarters of the humble science ministry. Just 30 years after its completion, Cuba’s grand temple of democracy and patriotism was virtually abandoned to the bats and the dust.Today the building is undergoing a rehabilitation that is not only physical but symbolic too. Its landmark dome — slightly taller than the one in Washington — is draped in safety netting. Hundreds of Cuban laborers are busy preparing the Capitolio for a return this year to its original purpose, as the home of Cuba’s legislative branch.“After the Revolution, co-habitation with a structure of the past was impossible,” said Havana City Historian Eusebio Leal, whose office is in charge of renovating the building, as well as countless other faded architectural wonders throughout the city’s long-neglected historic core.“The time has come for the Capitolio to reclaim the great symbolism that it was built for,” said Leal in an interview.

Though Cuba’s lawmaking body, the National Assembly of People’s Power, is seen as a rubber-stamp legislature, voting unanimously with no debate, its return to the capitol has symbolic significance. Washington Post photo by Sarah L. VoisinSee also: As talks with US begin, Cubans anticipate changes in their livesCuban President Raúl Castro has insisted his country’s one-party system is not up for negotiation, even as the United States and Cuba move to restore diplomatic relations.But in a quieter way, his decision to re-occupy the Capitolio is at least a symbolic step toward a potentially different relationship between Cuba’s government and its citizens.Cuba’s lawmaking body, the National Assembly of People’s Power, has long been a rubber-stamp legislature that typically convenes twice a year, voting unanimously to approve a top-down agenda with no debate or dissent.The 614-member body meets in the Havana Convention Center, the Palco, set in a remote, heavily guarded suburb that is almost entirely removed from ordinary Cuban life.Making the Capitolio the legislature’s headquarters once more places it right back in the throbbing, crowded heart of the city, adjacent to some of Havana’s poorest neighborhoods. The legislative chamber of the Cuban capitol building hasn’t been used for its intended purpose since 1959, when Fidel Castro dissolved Congress, emptying the Capitolio’s soaring marble and granite halls. Washington Post photo by Sarah L. VoisinIt is as Cuba’s forefathers intended. Work on the Capitolio began in 1926, after previous attempts to erect a capitol building failed or were abandoned. President Gerardo Machado ordered the palatial structure built on the swampy site of the city’s old railway station. The Cuban Treasury was flush with sugar money.A U.S. firm with an extensive portfolio on the island, Purdy and Henderson, was hired to execute the project, along with Cuban architects and some of Europe’s most famous designers and craftsman. The building took 5,000 workers, $17 million and just three years to complete, a feat that is still used to chastise today’s notoriously less-efficient Cuban construction crews.No expense was spared. Framing the Capitolio’s grand entrance are 12 massive stone columns, each five feet thick, and two 21-foot bronze figures representing Work and Virtue, by the Italian sculptor Angelo Zanelli. Inside, under the soaring steel-and-stone dome, is Zanelli’s 48-foot bronze Statue of the Republic, an Athena-like female figure plated in gold that weighs 30 tons and remains one of the largest indoor statues in the world.Directly beneath the dome was a giant 24-carat diamond set into the floor to mark the zero-kilometer for Cuba’s national highway system. According to Cuban lore, the gem once sat in the crown of Russian czar Nicholas II.Recommended: Quietly, Cuba, US have been on same team against illegal drug trade The Cuban capitol building in Havana, shown on Jan. 27, 2015, is undergoing a massive restoration. With lawmakers gone from the building since 1959, the building has served as the headquarters for the country’s Science Ministry. Washington Post photo by Sarah L. VoisinThe splendor didn’t end there. The main hall, The Hall of Lost Steps, is so called because its arched ceiling is so high and so ornate that it muffles any echo from footsteps. Sculpted bronze panels depicting Greek classical scenes and key episodes of Cuban history are everywhere. The main library — dedicated to national hero Jose Martí — is paneled from floor to ceiling in three stories of mahogany and cedar, beneath four one-ton Tiffany chandeliers.“Still smells like a cigar box,” said Marilyn Mederos, the chief architect for the rehabilitation project, offering a behind-the-scenes tour of the restoration effort. “Even after all these years.”The Capitolio’s extravagance has made it difficult and costly to renovate, and Leal declined to give a cost estimate. But much of the building remains in good shape. The rehabilitation work is projected to continue until 2017, but the City Historian’s office said it will re-open parts of the structure to guided tours this year to allow visitors to see progress made so far.On the lower floors one recent day, crews winched out corroded 1920s electrical cables as thick as a baseball bat. In workshops along the roof, students in gloves and safety goggles scrubbed grime from bronze door fixtures using acid-dipped brushes. Hard-hat workers on ropes power-washed the exterior granite walls until they glowed white again. Marilyn Mederos, left, chief architect for the restoration of the Cuban capitol building in Havana, discusses one of the stained glass windows with Marisol Marrero, the chief civil engineer of the project, on Jan. 27, 2015. Washington Post photo by Sarah L. VoisinThe building is not a copy of the U.S. Capitol. Though the domes are similar, the two structures are different in shape. The older U.S. Capitol, whose dome was completed in 1866 and is now under repair, is slightly larger and more angular.Cuba’s Capitolio was also designed as a bicameral structure, but it’s more of a monolith, with rounded ends and several interior patios meant to circulate air in the stifling Caribbean heat.The two structures are siblings in spirit, though, built as awe-inspiring shrines to New World democracy that could rival the greatest European cathedrals and palaces.Cuba’s pride in the building was not universal. In 1933, with the country dragged into the Great Depression along with the United States, an angry crowd rioting on the Capitolio steps directed its rage at the bronze bas-relief door panel depicting Machado, who had turned increasingly despotic. They chiseled off his face.“But it should be noted,” Leal said, “they left all the other panels alone.” More than 300 workers are involved in the restoration of the Cuban capitol building in Havana, shown on Jan. 27, 2015. The building’s design is based on the U.S. Capitol. Washington Post photo by Sarah L. VoisinBy the 1950s, many Cubans had come to resent the building, viewing it as a white elephant of corruption and misplaced priorities in a country with just one university and too many living in poverty.As his crews work to restore the building, Leal, too, has tried to rehabilitate the Capitolio’s legacy. He notes that the Cuban Constitution of 1940 – widely considered a high-water mark for Cuban democracy – was signed in the building.Leal is also preparing a ceremony next year that will dedicate the Tomb of the Unknown Mambi, honoring the 19th-century independence fighters who rose up against Spanish colonialism with little more than machetes and old muskets.The original intent of the Capitolio’s designers was for the building to edify Cuban patriotism by glorying its founding fathers, and today those 19th-century figures, especially Jose Marti, remain sacred to both sides of the Castro-era ideological divide.It is not hard to imagine that they could some day play a unifying role again. The Capitolio’s cavernous halls should be large enough even for a reconciliation of that magnitude.“For me, what it represents is the possibility for Cubans to make things that are beautiful, that are great,” said Marisol Marrero, the project’s chief civil engineer. “It shows what the Cuban people have done, and are capable of doing in the future.”Recommended: Rodrigo Carreras, Costa Rica’s envoy to Israel, gets ready for his next challenge: Cuba© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:No opening date for US, Cuba embassies; more talks set Cuba marks Castro uprising anniversary with call for US embargo end US to ease travel, trade with Cuba starting Friday Obama administration to further ease travel and business restrictions with Cubalast_img read more
