In the city of Funes, a vast and low-density urban area, a few kilometers away from the city of Rosario, a summer house needs to be extended and remodeled with the purpose of putting up a family and its new generations more frequently. The project is accomplished through the reinterpretation of the interstitial spaces comprised between the existing construction and the plot borders. Save this picture!Refurbished Floor PlanSave this picture!© Arq. Manuel CucurellThrough simple operations, taking advantage of the hermetic nature and position of the old house, the private rooms, that the new plan of three bedrooms and a bathroom demands are organized. Under a regular series of metallic outlines that settle and reorder those parts of the plot that surround the house, the social use area is laid out. Towards the southwest end of the plot, indefinite and in disuse, a series of reinforced concrete blocks between the outlines make room to the gallery, kitchen, living/dining room, and utility room, incorporating the old grill area.Save this picture!© Arq. Manuel CucurellSave this picture!© Arq. Manuel CucurellWith the covered area already defined, the outlines in the remaining areas are covered by a solid iron frame, turning into arbors and forming interior courtyards protected by panels of fixed bars as well as movable ones. Under the same sequence, combined with wood strips, the vehicles are parked at the east end of the plot. These intermediate spaces provide shadow, security for the expansions and successively fade the idea of back/front and exterior/interior away. The adopted monochromatic material palette emphasizes the sequence of the dematerialization of the construction towards the garden and, at the same time, it establishes a tectonic dialogue with the preexisting house.Save this picture!© Arq.

News media protest against serial killings of journalists

first_img Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Philippines Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa RSF_en June 1, 2021 Find out more In response to calls from the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) and the Publishers Association of the Philippines Inc., the news media staged demonstrations on the eve of International Human Rights Day today in protest against the 13 murders of journalists that have occurred this year in the archipelago.Journalists throughout the country left their offices for 15 minutes at 3 p.m. in a show of respect for their slain colleagues. At the same time, radio stations supporting the protest observed two minutes of silence. A joint editorial was published in newspapers and read out on radio and TV stations throughout the day.”The Philippine press will remember 2004 as a year of infamy”, some 300 journalists and press groups said in a pooled statement. “With every murder of a journalist, or a judge, an environmentalist, an anti-corruption activist, a human rights worker – democracy dies a little”, they said. “There has been no single conviction for a journalist’s murder since 1986”, the statement added._______________________________________________________________03.12.2004A second journalist murdered within one weekReporters Without Borders expressed its deep concern after a second journalist was murdered within one week in the Philippines, the 13th to be killed this year.Reporter Stephen Omais was found dead on 27 November 2004, near the city of Tabuk in Kalinga Province in the north of the country.Appalled at this series of killings, the worldwide press freedom organisation called on the government to “urgently come up with some fresh approaches to halt this wave of violence against the press”.Omais, who worked for the provincial bi-weekly Guru Press and local public radio DZRK, was apparently killed on 26 November 2004. His body was discovered the following day with several head injuries apparently caused by stones found near the corpse. His family identified him a few days later.A colleague at Guru Press, Estefania Kollin, said she had last seen Omais two weeks previously. He had been investigating a government public works project after which staff at the newspaper had received death threats.The provincial governor and the police chief of Kalinga Province offered a reward of 20,000-pesos (about 270 euros) for information leading to the identity of Omais’s killer.Police are questioning a friend of the murder victim and a cycle-rickshaw driver. Director General of the national police Edgar Aglipay said a suspect had been arrested on 3 December. He was Joey Patalig, 32, a professor at Tabuk Central School. No evidence of his guilty has yet been produced.Reporters Without Borders called on the authorities to keep national and international organisations for the protection of journalists informed about any progress in the investigations.

I understand states are under [budget] pressure but government should not use citizens  as a bank teller or an ATM machine.”According to Bridge Magazine, county tax foreclosure is a common practice in Michigan, and counties have foreclosed on over 177,000 properties in the state since 2012. Oakland County, the state’s second largest in population, foreclosed on over 5,500 properties between 2012 and 2017 according to state records, but 65% of county foreclosures took place in Wayne County (Detroit).A study from Quicken Loans revealed that as of 2018, 21% of Michigan homeowners were unaware their property was behind on property taxes, and another 61% of renters in tax-delinquent properties were unaware of the home’s tax status. However, property tax foreclosures in Detroit are at a 14-year low. In 2018, 2,920 properties faced property tax foreclosure auction, down from 6,052 in 2017, and far below the peak of 15,000 in 2015.“As Detroit comes back, we need to do everything we can to make sure those who stayed in our city through good times and bad are able to stay in their homes,” Mayor Mike Duggan told Quicken Loans. “We are seeing real progress in tax foreclosure reductions that impact all of our neighborhoods, and through programs like Neighbor to Neighbor, we will continue this important work in close partnership with the community.”Although outreach programs have helped improve Detroit’s tax foreclosure issues, the city still faces other foreclosure-related challenges. According to GOBankingRates and data from Zillow, 34.4% of homes are currently underwater, and the median home value at the Detroit-Warren-Dearborn metro-area level is $161,300, far below the national median of $226,300. GOBankingRates puts Detroit second on its list of U.S. cities most likely to enter a housing crisis. Subscribelast_img read more

Gov. Holcomb Signs Bill To Create Sexual Harassment Training For Indiana Lawmakers

first_img Holcomb And Rush Unveil Improvements For Executive And Judicial BranchesAt a bill signing for legislation that creates sexual harassment prevention policies for the Indiana General Assembly, Gov. Eric J. Holcomb and Chief Justice Loretta Rush shared changes to sexual harassment training policies for the state’s executive and judicial branches.“In light of the many recent, high-profile sexual and workplace harassment cases, it makes sense for all branches of government to take a look at their own policies. There’s zero room for harassment of any kind in Indiana’s state government workplaces, and I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished to ensure that message is loud and clear in the legislative, executive and judicial branches,” Gov. Holcomb said.The governor signed House Enrolled Act 1309 in his office today with the bill’s author state Rep. Karen Engleman, Senate sponsors Sen. Jim Buck and Sen. Tim Lanane,  and co-author Rep. Cherrish Pryor. The bill requires annual sexual harassment training for all members of the General Assembly.Following the signing, Holcomb outlined changes to the state’s executive branch harassment prevention policies—all of which will be focused on modernization, increasing the culture of professionalism and civility, and empowering bystanders to speak up if they see something inappropriate. Changes includeRecognizing that organizational culture is set at the top, state agency heads will complete annual training workshops focused on workplace harassment, conduct, and civility.Managers and supervisors at all levels will receive additional sexual harassment training as part of a new program under development by the Indiana State Personnel Department to launch this summer.All state employees are currently required to complete computer-based training on an annual basis and during new employee onboarding. This training module has been updated and will be launched in May.Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush outlined a strengthened Judicial Branch policy focused on civility. Chief Justice Rush explained, “Past sexual harassment training often focused on what behavior was illegal. By emphasizing whether the offensive behavior was illegal, employers appeared to condone harassing behavior if it did not expose them to liability. Training for Judicial Branch employees will make clear our expectation is for an environment free of sexual harassment, intimidation, disrespect, and uncivil behavior.”Changes include:A revamped policy distributed by the Chief Justice to all Supreme Court employees.An online complaint form for employees to more easily report problems immediately.An increased emphasis on civility in all curricula dealing with harassment.

Podcast: Sourcing sugar – Listen live to Napier Brown’s Peter Hough

first_imgIn a new series of podcasts to discuss the issues impacting the bakery indusry, British Baker’s Patrick McGuigan speaks to Peter Hough, sugar sourcing director at sugar supplier Napier Brown.They talk about the prospect of the EU abolishing sugar quotas, the affect it will have on the market, prices and supply.Bakers have been hit by soaring sugar prices and supply shortages in the past year caused by poor harvests around the world. Earlier this month, the Committee of European Users of Sugar, whose members include some of the EU’s largest confectionery and bakery manufacturers, said that EU sugar supply was at its most critical level since 2005, “causing extreme volatility, instability and disruption to the EU food and drink industry”.The Committee called on the EU to abolish quotas as soon as possible and release at least 550,000 tonnes of out-of-quota sugar onto the domestic EU market by November. It also called for a suspension of the duty on concessionary imports known as the CXL sugar duty. The recently formed European Sugar Refiners’ Association has also called for the duty to be permanently scrapped on raw cane sugar.To listen to this British Baker podcast – please click the link below.
