Four badly counted inputs.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe owners (a couple with two children) wanted a house without maintenance, with a lot of privacy and a good relationship with the garden -more like a courtyard- all year round, a well-placed studio, and a few other usual requirements. And a desire to live in a modern house -without a capital letter-. And a certain interest in contemporary Japanese domestic architecture.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaSave this picture!Floor Plan DiagramSave this picture!© Adrià GoulaWith these determining factors, it was clear to us that history had to be written almost from scratch, or rather from within, with the building itself. A new site had to be created.The plot was flat, slightly below street level. No trees.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe first step was to build an opaque fence as high as possible, about two meters, and place the house off-centered to the east, filling the 120m2 of maximum occupation and filling all the building limits except the west, where the sun comes in all year. There is where the perimeter garden becomes wider (7.6m), the rest has variable widths adapted to the regulations (3m to neighbours and between 5 and 6 to the streets) -the regulations force things that do not always make much sense-.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaTo the north, we planted some evergreen trees that, with time, will deprive the view of the neighbouring tower of houses.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe new house is structured in four concentric layers parallel to the limits of the plot, like an onion. From outside to inside: the building fence, the perimeter courtyard, and a continuous gallery that surrounds the central body, a two-storey concrete block box.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaIn the initial phases of the project, when the house was bigger, the perimeter gallery was an intermediate space, bio climatized, with complementary uses, and all the main pieces were housed in the core of the house. Later, due to budgetary adaptation, the surface was reduced and only the rooms, the bathrooms, and the stairs were left in the central body. The common areas were moved to the gallery.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaAlmost everything happens in the gallery. It is a veranda, with certain resonances to Charles Moore’s Orinda house, which proposes intense and variable relations (seasonally) with the patio; in summer, through the large sliding walls it becomes a porch; in winter, large windows in the corners offer framed views of the garden and capture solar radiation to the west. Contrary to what is usual, in this house, the windows are fixed, and the mobile doors are opaque, a condition that constantly transforms the facade and the gallery, depending on what is open and what is closed.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaAs in the chapel of Santa María dos Anjos by Lina Bo Bardi, the veranda, with its sloping roof, is built with light and dry systems: wooden structure (pillars, beams, and roof) and glass, aluminum, wood and corrugated galvanized sheet enclosures. In contrast to the lightness of the gallery, the central core is massive and compact, with more thermal inertia. The block walls and slabs are left visible in the gallery and painted white in the rooms.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaIn winter, the veranda shelters and heats the entire central body (bathrooms and bedrooms), which does not have its own climate system (on the ground floor); the concrete floor, with a lot of inertia, apart from receiving direct solar radiation on time, is heated via underfloor heating, as are the rooms on the second floor; generation is by an aerothermal heat pump.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaIn summer, when the sliding doors are closed, the windows are protected from the sun by the overhang of the roof and by reflective exterior curtains. At the same time, the inclination of the roof favors, by stratification, a passive ventilation system that evacuates the hot air through four ducts hidden in the facades that work as small solar chimneys, favoring the natural renovation and facilitating the cooling of the veranda.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaTen years after the first meeting with the clients, and with a long and intense history in between, house 905 was completed.

Commission issues advice to help older donors avoid fraud

first_img  237 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Tagged with: charity fraud With HMRC data showing that 374,000 people over the age of 65 made donations in tax year 2017/18, totalling £1,092 million, the Charity Commission has issued advice to help older donors avoid falling victim to fraud.The Charity Commission also cites recent findings from the Crime Survey for England and Wales, which show that almost 1 in 12 of respondents aged 65 and older reported being the victim of fraud in the last year: equivalent to more than 800,000 older people in England and Wales. Its own research from 2017 suggests just under a third of 65-74 year olds usually do checks on a charity before donating.It has issued general giving advice, and specific tips for street fundraising, clothing collections, and online fundraising:Always:Check the charity’s name and registration number www.gov.uk/checkcharity.Most charities with an annual income of £5,000 or more must be registered.Ask the collector for more information if in doubt.Ask the collector for more information if in doubt.Never feel under pressure by a fundraiser into making a donation immediately.Exercise the same caution every time you’re looking to support or donate to a charity.Street fundraising and clothes collectionsCheck whether street collectors are wearing a proper ID badge and that any collection tin is sealed and undamaged.Contact the charity that you’re seeking to donate to or work with to find out more about their spending.Carefully review collection bags for clothing and household goods to ascertain whether they are from a genuine charity.Check whether fundraising materials are genuine. They should feature the charity’s name, registered name and a landline contact number.Online fundraising Advertisement Commission issues advice to help older donors avoid fraud Be careful when responding to emails or clicking on links within them.Make sure the charity is genuine before sharing personal or financial information.If someone thinks a collection or appeal is not legitimate, they are urged to report it to the police, and if they think a collector does not have a licence, to report it to the relevant Local Authority Licensing Team or the Metropolitan Police (if in Greater London), as well as to the charity if possible.Sarah Atkinson, Director of Policy, Planning and Communications at the Charity Commission, said:“Donating to charity is a longstanding and important tradition in this country, and I value the generosity of people who have worked hard all their lives wanting to give back.  It is vital that this generosity does not lead to people becoming victims of crime.“The scams that we sometimes unfortunately see take advantage of people’s charitable spirit, and can seriously dent their trust in charity.“Making simple checks before you hand over your money or your details is an important way to ensure you are giving with your head as well as your heart. I want to encourage everyone to follow our advice, so that they feel empowered and more confident at spotting and avoiding scams.”  236 total views,  2 views today Melanie May | 2 September 2019 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Coalition calls for arrest of Philly police officer who killed Brandon Tate-Brown

first_imgFamily members of Brandon Tate-Brown and a broad coalition of supporting organizations gathered for a news conference on Aug. 5 near the site where he was killed by a Philadelphia police officer on Dec. 15, 2014. They renewed a call that charges be filed against the responsible officer in light of newly released evidence. Police shot Tate-Brown in the back of his head following a routine traffic stop in the city’s Mayfair district.Tanya Brown Dickerson, mother of Brandon Tate-Brown, speaking Aug. 5 in Philadelphia.WW photo: Joseph PietteThe Rev. Mark Tyler from Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild (POWER) opened the conference. He announced that the NAACP, the National Action Network, the Black Clergy of Philadelphia, the Guardian Civic League and others had formed a new coalition to demand justice for Tate-Brown.The coalition will continue the work initiated by the Philadelphia Coalition for Racial, Economic and Legal Justice. Tyler and other speakers repeatedly thanked the REAL Justice Coalition for tirelessly pushing the case when others were unwilling to take it on. REAL had demonstrated in a bitter snowstorm and took arrests when the group challenged Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey and District Attorney Seth Williams. “Thanks to these young people who were there from the beginning we now know the truth of what happened,” Tyler told those present.Tyler outlined new evidence in the case that was found on the Philadelphia Police Department’s own website. As a result of public pressure and an investigation of the department by the federal Department of Justice, this website now records details of every police-related shooting.The original report filed by police in December 2014 alleged that police officers Nicholas Carrelli and Heng Dang stopped the car that Tate-Brown was driving at 2:40 a.m. on Dec. 15, 2014, because he was driving without his lights on. According to their original report, the cops saw a gun in the car and ordered Tate-Brown out.The officers originally claimed that Tate-Brown subsequently returned to the passenger door and was reaching into the car for the gun, so they were forced to shoot him in “self defense.” The PPD website was recently amended to state that one of the officers only “observed the weapon during the course of the stop” and that Brown “ran behind the vehicle and was heading toward the side door” when he was killed.Tate-Brown’s family was able to keep media attention focused on the case as a result of the REAL Justice Coalition’s campaign demanding to know: “Who killed Brandon Tate Brown?” This pressure allowed the family to obtain video coverage of the incident from store cameras in the area. The videos provided evidence that disputed the police account.Videos refute police liesThey showed, for one thing, that Tate-Brown’s headlights were clearly on. Another camera showed him running away from the police who eventually cornered and killed him with a shot to the back of his head behind his car, not at the passenger door as the cops had originally stated. Despite this evidence and mounting public pressure, DA Seth Williams refused to charge the officers.Tyler underscored that the videos and the amendments to the original police report prove that Tate Brown was killed behind the car and was not reaching for anything inside the car when Officer Carrelli shot him in the back of his head. Despite this evidence, said Tyler, “Carrelli is still on duty and receiving a pay check.”Tyler added, “The Department of Justice’s damning report on use of deadly force by Philadelphia police noted that officers involved in deadly shootings in Philadelphia don’t have to give a statement for up to three months following the incident. No other U.S. city has this policy.” He stressed that because Cincinnati police officer Raymond Tensing was forced to give testimony right away, he was caught in his lie and subsequently indicted for shooting Samuel DuBose, who was also stopped for a “routine traffic violation.”Brandon Tate-Brown’s mother, Tanya Brown-Dickerson, called for the Department of Justice to investigate the case. She urged other mothers facing her same pain to “keep fighting until you have no fight left.”Brown-Dickerson noted that without the youth from the REAL Justice Coalition pushing me, “I would not be here now.” She demanded that the police involved in her son’s murder be charged with “falsifying evidence, tampering with evidence, conspiracy, perjury and murder.”Asa Khalif, cousin of Tate-Brown and a member of the REAL Justice Coalition, stated, “There are no good cops when ‘good cops’ stand by and allow injustice to go by and say nothing.” He demanded that Officer Carrelli be arrested and taken off the streets.Other speakers included Rochelle Bilal on behalf of the NAACP and the Guardian Civic League, a group representing Black police officers; Paula Peoples with the National Action Network; and the Rev. Terrence Griffith, senior pastor of the historic 205-year-old First African Baptist Church of Philadelphia and current president of the Black Clergy of Philadelphia, who blamed the media for not pressuring the police commissioner for answers.Rev. Tyler concluded the press conference by noting that while Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter set up a special commission to carry out recommendations made by the DOJ study, nothing has been done since, because “nothing was intended to be done.” Tyler called for an ongoing coalition of community groups, including those represented the conference, to keep pushing their demands for the arrest and indictment of Officer Carrelli and implementation of all 91 recommendations made by the DOJ.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist fabricated claim that his family was massacred

first_img December 16, 2020 Find out more Call for probe into murder of 11 close relatives of online newspaper editorReporters Without Borders is shocked by the murders of 11 close relatives of Dia al-Kawwaz, the Amman-based editor of the online newspaper Shabeqat Akhbar al-Iraq, in an attack on his family home yesterday in Baghdad. Kawwaz recently received telephone threats from Iraqi militia members.“We call on the government to order an investigation to identify those responsible for this carnage and to bring them to justice,” the press freedom organisation said. “The impunity reigning in Baghdad for the past five years encourages attacks on journalists and their families. It is even more disturbing when security forces see what is happening and yet take no action. Police at a security checkpoint near the Kawwaz family home failed to intervene or give chase.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Iraqi journalists are defenceless and powerless in the face of the militias operating in the capital. Like Kawwaz, hundreds of them have sought refuge abroad but the relatives who have remained in Iraq are exposed to reprisals.”According to a report posted on the Shabeqat Akhbar al-Iraq website, around five gunmen entered the Kawwaz family home in the northeast Baghdad neighbourhood of Al-Shaab shortly after 7 a.m. yesterday and shot dead two of Kawwaz’s sisters, their husbands and their seven children, aged 5 to 10. They then blew up the house before leaving in a vehicle with no licence plates. Neighbours said police at a nearby post did not intervene.Kawwaz told Reporters Without Borders he recently received telephone threats from members of the Shiite Badr militia that is the armed wing of the Supreme Islamic Iraqi Council. Aged 46, Kawwaz is known for being very critical of Shiite leaders in the government and of Iranian meddling in Iraqi politics.Created in 2002, Shabeqat Akhbar al-Iraq is an online newspaper specializing in Iraqi politics. Kawwaz edits it from the Jordanian capital of Amman because of the dangers for journalists working inside Iraq.At least 206 journalists and media assistants have been killed in Iraq since the US invasion in March 2003. There are also 14 Iraqi journalists of whom there has been no news since they were kidnapped. Reporters Without Borders is astounded and angry to discover that a journalist’s claim that 11 of his close relatives were murdered last weekend is false. Amman-based Iraqi journalist Dia al-Kawwaz had claimed on 26 November that 11 members of his immediate family were shot by gunmen the previous day in Baghdad.“We are obviously relieved to learn that the Kawwaz family is safe and sound but this journalist’s behaviour is unacceptable,” the press freedom organisation said. “We are appalled by this deceit, which is not only sordid but also dangerous as it obscures the fact that the families of dozens of journalists have been exposed to violence by Iraq’s armed groups.”Reporters Without Borders added: “A great many journalists have had to abandon everything in recent years – their homes and their loved ones – in order to seek refuge abroad. This case must not be allowed to undermine the credibility of the ordeals they describe.”Journalists with Al-Hurra TV met today in Baghdad with members of the Kawwaz family, who denied Dia al-Kawwaz’s claims and said he must have done it “to obtain money from abroad.” Many Jordanian dignitaries attended a wake organised by Kawwaz in Amman on 26 November.When Reporters Without Borders contacted Kawwaz today he was evasive about the alleged incident and could not name the relatives who had supposedly been killed. Questioned several times by Agence France-Presse, he was unable to give the exact address of the family home where the massacre allegedly took place or where the victims were supposedly buried. On the website of the online newspaper he edits, Shabeqat Akhbar al-Iraq, he said his family had been “pressured to deny the facts.”Kawwaz’s claim had been quickly denied by Iraqi interior ministry spokesman Gen. Abdul Karim Khalaf. “It is a lie,” he said. “Nothing of the sort happened. We always investigate murders of this nature.” Another government spokesman said he had contacted Kawwaz’s mother in Baghdad.

Respect for freedom of expression worsening in Egypt

first_img February 6, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News News February 1, 2021 Find out more News January 22, 2021 Find out more Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison Help by sharing this information Organisation Reporters Without Borders deplores yesterday’s decision by a military court in Cairo to postpone the hearing of jailed blogger Maikel Nabil Sanad’s appeal until 11 October. The postponement is way to keep Sanad in detention without hearing his case, the press freedom organization said.Violence was used to disperse yesterday’s demonstrations in support of Sanad. Soldiers attacked activists and arrested three journalists. They also seized cameras and mobile phones from both protesters and journalists. Material was confiscated from Al-Jazeera, Press TV and Christian Science Monitor personnel.Sanad’s father, Nabil Sanad Ibrahim, has written another letter to the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces requesting the release of his son, who was arrested on 28 March for criticizing the armed forces and was sentenced to three years in prison by a military court on 10 April. Reporters Without Borders supports his initiative and urges the authorities to stop cracking down on bloggers and journalists. The organization has registered a series of incidents affecting the media in the past two weeks.Plain-clothes police raided the offices of Al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr (Al-Jazeera Live Egypt), located in the Cairo neighbourhood of Al-Agouza, for the second time in a month on 29 September, detaining the journalist Mohamed Suleiman for several hours and confiscating material without a warrant.The previous raid was carried out on 11 September by culture ministry and public broadcasting agency personnel, who examined the station’s official papers, seized mobile broadcasting equipment and arrested a technician (read article).The General Authority for Investment and Free Trade Zones sent a warning to satellite TV station ON TV on 4 October accusing it of violating the terms of the Investment Guarantees and Incentives Act as regards programme content. A check would be carried out within 48 hours, said the agency, which issued ON TV with a broadcast licence in 2008. ON TV was previously assured in December 2010 that it was complying with programme content rules. The ministry of solidarity and social justice sent a similar warning to Dream TV because it retransmitted the 19 July edition of its talk-show Al-Haqiqa on 16 September, thereby allegedly violated the media Code of Conduct.The state-owned Al-Ahram Press House refused to print the latest issue of the pro-government newspaper Rosa-l-Youssef on 26 September. According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, this was because a previous issue (on 27) had an article accusing ousted President Hosni Mubarak of knowingly allowing an Israeli spy to operate in Egypt.Two days before that, the same state printing press stopped printing the latest issue of the weekly Sawt Al-Umma and scrapped all the copies that had already come off the press. The reason was an article by the journalist Antar Abdel Latif accusing the intelligence services of showing no interest in trying to solve any of the murders of demonstrators during the 18-day revolution.photo: ©qantara center_img EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff to go further EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Egypt News Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution October 5, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Respect for freedom of expression worsening in Egyptlast_img read more

Kiwanis Club honors retiring Ithaca Police Chief Pete Tyler

first_img Tagged: ipd, ithaca police department, kiwanis club, Pete Tyler Your Public Safety news is made possible with support from: ITHACA, N.Y. — Ithaca Police Chief Pete Tyler was recognized Monday by the Kiwanis Club of Ithaca-Cayuga. With his retirement coming up at the end of May after nearly 28 years at the Ithaca Police Department, the club thanked Tyler for his service and presented him the Frank G. Hammer Officer of the Month Award.Tyler has served as police chief for just over two years, taking over after Chief John Barber retired in 2017. He will officially retire May 31. Tyler first joined the department in 1991. In addition to working on the police force, he has also served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT with the Dryden Fire Department — work he plans to continue after retirement.Related: Chief Pete Tyler will retire after 27 years at Ithaca Police DepartmentEvery month, the Kiwanis Club of Ithaca-Cayuga honors a member of local enforcement or emergency responder with the Frank G. Hammer Officer of the Month Award. Sometimes the award goes to officers for a particular event, but with so many retirements in recent months, it has gone to people like Cornell Police Chief Kathy Zoner, New York State Police Sgt. Kelly Daly and former Trumansburg Police Chief Thomas Ferretti — recognizing them for their decades of service in the community.The district attorney’s office always considers the nominations for officer of the month and this month, District Attorney Matthew Van Houten said, giving Tyler the award was an easy choice to make. “I’m grateful to have worked with you,” Van Houten told Tyler Monday at the award luncheon held at Kendal at Ithaca.center_img Kelsey O’Connor Ithaca Police Deputy Chief Dennis Nayor, who nominated Tyler, said 28 years is a long career in law enforcement, but said Tyler has consistently come to the job with energy and has kept the department ahead of the curve during changing times.Nayor highlighted a recent situation Tyler came across while driving one afternoon. In January, Tyler was first on the scene to a head-on crash on Route 13, where he put his medical training to use. New York State Police credited Tyler’s quick action with saving the man’s life.“That was just another part of his day and the next day he came in and it was business as usual. That in and of it itself I think would be worth recognition. Then when you couple that with 28 years of high-level policing at a caliber that’s not often seen, I think that’s why we’re here recognizing Chief Tyler.”Former Chief John Barber was present Monday and congratulated Tyler for his service. There were also officers from New York State Police, the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office, Ithaca College, Cornell University Police and others.Tyler thanked the officers he works with at the IPD and all the members of local law enforcement. “Today is about thanking you for giving me an opportunity as somebody who had no aspirations when I started this job to so much as even be a supervisor, let alone the chief of police. But I’m very proud of it. I’m proud of the people I’ve met along the way,” Tyler said.There has been no official announcement yet about who will replace Tyler. Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick did not respond to an immediate request for comment on the search process Monday afternoon. Kelsey O’Connor is the managing editor for the Ithaca Voice. Questions?

Feeding strategies and diets of breeding grey-headed and wandering albatrosses at South Georgia

first_imgThe foraging areas and diets of the grey-headed albatross Thalassarche chrysostoma and wandering albatross Diomedea exulans were studied in March/April 2000 at Bird Island, South Georgia, during their respective chick-rearing and brood-guard periods. Oceanographically, March/April 2000 was abnormal, with warm conditions close to South Georgia. These conditions affected albatross foraging behaviour, particularly that of grey-headed albatrosses. Both species tended to forage in different areas of the ocean, with significant differences in trip durations. Grey-headed albatrosses (n = 9) foraged mainly in Antarctic waters (predominantly shelf waters of the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula, and also in oceanic waters around South Georgia), feeding mainly on krill (Euphausia superba; 77% by mass). Foraging trips lasted 13.3 days (range: 5-26 days), far longer than the 1-3 days found in previous studies. Only one grey-headed albatross was associated with the APF (Antarctic Polar Front), a reported foraging area in recent studies. Wandering albatrosses (n=9) foraged in Antarctic (South Georgia Shelf) and Antarctic Polar Frontal Zone (APFZ) waters, with trips of 1-4 days trip duration (usual for this species), feeding on fish (46% by mass) and cephalopods (32%). One bird was associated with the APF, and two birds foraged on the shelf/shelf break over the Patagonian shelf. These findings suggest that sea surface temperature anomalies, produced by movement of the APF closer to South Georgia or by eddies, may have had an effect on the foraging strategy of greyheaded albatrosses that year (the main prey of grey-headed albatrosses in previous studies, the omma-strephid Martialia hyadesi, is known to be associated with the APF). Also, when both albatross breeding periods overlap, their foraging areas were complementary, which reflected the prey taken.last_img read more
