Bayonne, United States - September 16, 2020 /PressCable/ —

A new competition called Rethink Bayonne Design has been launched by Rethink Urban Design. The virtual event lasts for two months and aims to bring the community together to inspire a new vision for Bayonne, NJ. Residents have been mainly left out of the urban planning conversation for years as the city is having its biggest boon. The company hopes to bring artists, architects, and sustainable development leaders together to find new housing solutions and make them available for property owners at little to no cost to them.

The newly launched competition is part of the Rethink Urban Design platform, which provides a creative outlet for people to potentially earn revenue by partnering with the organizers to make their designs available for sale. The platform offers this by taking an existing design and applying it to a lot of land so the idea can be realized.

Rethink Urban Design says that aside from the social media platform Pinterest, people are unable to visualize the future home designs they want to see. The company adds that many old homes are not properly taken care of and new designs do not have the visibility required to be implemented.

But the platform seeks to overcome this problem by providing a valid place for designers to gain the visibility they require. Whether people design as a hobby, produce side ideas separate to their work, or have a senior project in mind, there is space for all ideas.

It says sustainable housing solutions should be tools that solve important housing issues including the fact many homes are outdated with the average home being 70 years old, most homes offer limited parking options and lack driveways, which can make transport storage difficult.

In addition, it says many housing options are socially non-inclusive meaning existing structures do not reflect or enable the social habits of people today. Furthermore, housing tends to be energy inefficient.

A spokesperson said: “Our event will feature at least three full days of ceremonies, keynote speakers, and various ways to interact with the participants all streamed to the public using a combination of Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch depending on the viewing experience desired. Viewers will be able to tune in via Facebook, Youtube, Twitch, and other online sources. Gamers with VR enabled devices will be able to tune in in 3D to view the designed spaces in ways not yet imaginable. Ultimately this allows consumers to give feedback as fast as possible.”

“Participants may join with a team or use our Slack channels to find a team to work with,” they added.

Putin engineers shakeup that could keep him in power longer

Sep 21, 2020

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin engineered a surprise shakeup of Russia's leadership Wednesday, proposing changes to the constitution that could keep him in power well past the end of his term in 2024. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev resigned his post after Putin announced the proposed constitutional amendments.

The shakeup sent shock waves through Russia's political elites who were left pondering what Putin's intentions were and speculating about future Cabinet appointments. Putin’s proposed constitutional reforms, announced...

Sultan Qaboos bin Said, who modernized Oman, dies at 79

Sep 21, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Oman’s Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the Mideast's longest-ruling monarch who seized power in a 1970 palace coup and pulled his Arabian sultanate into modernity while carefully balancing diplomatic ties between adversaries Iran and the U.S., has died. He was 79. The British-educated, reclusive sultan reformed a nation that was home to only three schools and harsh laws banning electricity, radios, eyeglasses and even umbrellas when he took the throne. Under his reign, Oman became known as a welcoming tourist destination and a key Mideast interlocutor, helping the U.S. free captives in Iran and Yemen and...

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Sep 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal.

President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Sep 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns. Relatively...
