Grids, Golden Section, Swiss style — the human eye enjoys simplifying the world, creating order, and finding patterns. The desire to frame, contain, and understand is instinctive. The photographer finds frames within frames.Grids are easily perceived, and boxes are everywhere. Architecture makes regular use of repeating structures and details. Bookshelves and windowpanes — the world has a way of aligning its elements.There is efficiency and elegance to the grid form, but there is also beauty in the chaotic, the random, and in nature’s proportions. Human activity and the whimsy of the natural world collide with the well-tested structure of the grid.Admire a campus that frames, and challenges, borders. 5The Museum of Comparative Zoology and Hoffman Laboratory meld forms and reflections. 7Holden Chapel, built in 1744 and among the oldest buildings in Harvard Yard, is framed in the windowpanes of Harvard Hall. 14Concrete slabs comprise the walls, floors, and stairwells of the Carpenter Center.

  • Youths pivotal to crime reduction

    first_img– Minister Ramjattan at CPG youth conferenceYoung people from across Regions Three, Four, Five, and Six on Sunday benefited from a youth conference organised by the Community Policing Group (CPG), held at the Mahaicony Community Ground. The meeting forms part of the CPG’s 42nd anniversary celebrations.Youths gathered at the conferenceDuring the conference, youths were educated on the role they could play in reducing violence and crime in various communities; anger management and conflict resolution; career guidance and gender-based violence.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, in his feature address, reiterated the critical role youths could play in crime reduction and mentioned that studies have indicated if negative practices and influences were arrested at an early age, there would be a reduction in crime in society.Minister Ramjattan also made reference to the findings of two recent surveys conducted in Guyana – the Household Drug Prevalence Survey and the Secondary School Drug Prevalence Survey which he described as troubling.“It was startling the findings of these two reports. Young people at the age of 11 smoking cigarettes, smoking cannabis and marijuana and even indulging in ecstasy… now that we are getting the results from these surveys and findings, we have to target our young people,” the Minister stated.He advised the participants to ensure they seize every opportunity to be educated, noting that it has more benefits than a life of crime.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan“What lasts and what makes your society a better society is when you pick up your books, when you read, when you become a professional. Whether it is a lawyer, doctor or even a mechanic or a professional in the sense of being a farmer that knows how to do farming or livestock; whatever it is, all of these matter because you will be providing a legitimate service to your society and you will be a unit in the population that is going to ensure that we live the happy life that all of us want,” Minister Ramjattan explained.The Public Security Minister also called on parents to play a more integral role in the lives of their children. He asked that parents reacquaint themselves with the practice of purchasing books for their children to read. Minister Ramjattan reminded that “better readers make better leaders”.He concluded by encouraging the participants to share the knowledge, which they would have gained from the conference with others in their respective communities.The conference is part of the Public Security Ministry’s Citizen Security Strengthening Project (CSSP), a $3 billion five-year programme, which has three components and is funded by the Inter-American Development Bank. The conference falls under component one “Community Crime & Violence Prevention”.This component will see preventative strategies to reduce crime and violence in 20 targeted communities across five administrative regions. The communities include Buxton and Friendship and Vigilance, Vreed-en-Hoop and Westminster, Albouystown, Charlestown, Sophia, South Ruimveldt Park and Gardens and North Ruimveldt, Alberttown and South Cummingsburg, Kingston and Lacytown, La Penitence and West Ruimveldt, Agricola and McDoom, Mocha and Providence, Annandale and Lusignan, Wismar, Angoy’s Avenue, Rosignol, Enmore and Haslington, Friendship and Kildonan, Albion and Fryish, Port Mourant and Rose Hall, and Adelphi Village and Canefield.last_img read more
