The house is located in Miraflores, a gated community on the outskirts of Rosario, Argentina. The urban development results of the repetition of identical lots of 20 x 40 meters. In this occasion, its geometry is modified by the appearance of a roundabout at the end of an internal street. Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoIn order to achieving a desired visual density, the building code of this community demands front and sides setbacks in every lot. As a result, all houses are built apart from each other and in most cases with great ostentatious. Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoThe proposal is a compact two-storey house to accommodate a large family and be able to enjoy a usable garden area. The design strategy is developed from the inside out, in search of desired views that determine holes in the walls and subtractions in the massing of the house. This results in porch spaces, terraces, balconies and garage areas. Each of these subtractions in the overall massing becomes an extension of the interior space. Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoThe ground floor is intended for common use with full view of the back garden. A double height interspace, flooded with natural light from above, reveals the horizon line once upstairs. The upper floor hosts bedrooms, a study room and terraces.Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoThe construction consists of load-bearing walls, concrete beams and steel columns. The exterior is completely plastered. The subtractions surface is light and smooth in order to absorb sunlight as inverted flashlights. The rest of it, the superfluous surface —the negative— is dark and rough. This difference between inside and outside is also found between the residence and its context.

Geo TV, target of Pakistan spy agency

first_img to go further December 24, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Geo TV, target of Pakistan spy agency April 21, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more PakistanAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Organisation PakistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is sounding the alarm over a resurgence of violent attacks on media belonging to the Jang-Geo group – attacks reflecting a slander and harassment campaign stage-managed by the ISI and run by its political allies. News Attacks on press freedom by a party in power and by political factions have been on the increase in 2014, even as violence committed by non-state actors has remained essentially at its previous level.As Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, the opposition party led by former cricket champion Imran Khan, has grown more powerful, the media have been increasingly targeted in confrontations directed a wing of the government or by various political factions. PTI, for its part, has become the third-ranking political force following its showing in the 2013 legislative elections.Since Khan’s party launched a protest movement last 14 August, more than a dozen attacks on journalists, media workers and contributors of Geo News, a television channel, and for the daily newspapers Jang and The News have taken place. The media organizations were deliberately targeted by PTI militants. Most of these incidents have been filmed and photographed.Part of the responsibility lies with media owners, businessmen who prize their political alliances to the detriment of journalistic ethics. Neha Ansari, a former journalist for the Express Tribune, described the process in Foreign Policy magazine. According to her, since opponents of the ruling party began holding the August demonstrations, charging voting fraud in the 2013 elections, “The owners of Pakistani media powerhouses — namely ARY News, the Express Media Group, and Dunya News — received instructions from the military establishment to support the ‘dissenting’ leaders and their sit-ins.”This editorial interference prompted numerous cases of biased press coverage and self-censorship. Above all, these practices led to a revival of animosity against the media, regardless of their political orientation, by political partisans of all persuasions.Whether pro-government, in the opposition or aligned with the military, the media, have frequently paid a high price for their coverage – sometimes directed by their owners – of the country’s political conflicts.Recent attacks against journalists in Islamabad, the capital city, illustrate the trend. On 30 November, journalists and technicians from two television channels were attacked, with their satellite trucks damaged. A cameraman from Dawn News was injured by small explosives thrown by PTI members, while two technicians from Dunya News were wounded by a grenade and rushed to the hospital. On 12 December in Karachi, Mazhar Abbas, a journalist and former secretary-general of the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists, was brutally attacked along with a crew from the Geo News television channel by PTI militants. A Geo News reporter had to hide in a satellite truck to escape the attackers.Geo News at centre of stormMany media have been hit by intimidation and violence from political partisans. But in the case of Geo TV, constant harassment by intelligence agencies has spurred the attacks. The channel’s star journalist and presenter, Hamid Mir, has openly accused ISI of being behind an attempt to kill him last April. Since then, Geo TV has been targeted by the spy service and all its allies.This was the case in a suspension order by the Pakistan Media Regulatory Authority last June. In addition, Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman, the channel’s owner, and entertainment journalist Shaista Lodhi of the “Utho Jago Pakistan” programme, were sentenced on 26 November to 26 years in prison by a court in the autonomous northern region of Gilgit Baltistan, for having broadcast a supposedly “blasphemous” programme. These moves bear the trademark of the ISI: the initial legal complaint, filed last 26 May, came from Himayatullah Khan, leader of the radical religious group Ahl-e-Sunnat Jamaat, known as a recipient of military and intelligence agency support.Likewise, attacks by PTI leader Khan against Geo TV, which might be explained simply by the channel’s critical approach to the party, take on special significance in light of its strengthening ties to ISI. For the past several months, links between PTI and the spy service have been a matter of increasing concern for the ruling party. In addition, some journalists fear a political-military alliance that would make their work conditions, and independent political coverage, even more difficult and dangerous. The PTI leader recently has been trying to add to the military’s power by giving it a seat on the commission in charge of investigating the alleged election fraud of 2013. This growing alliance with an organization that Reporters Without Borders categorized as a “press freedom predator,” amounts to additional pressure on media professionals seen as becoming too interested for their own good in PTI or ISI, or who take a critical tone towards these organizations.Last 26 April, following the attack on Hamid Mir, Khan issued an official communiqué demanding an apology by Geo News for “baseless allegations and media vilification of the Pakistan Army and ISI.” Khan also accused the channel of having “aided and abetted in the general election rigging from prematurely announcing the results” and of “conducting a deliberate campaign to malign the military and demoralize our soldiers.”The two scourges of the press: violence and threatsIn a country beset by all manner of enemies of free and independent information, Pakistan is one of the deadliest countries for media professionals. Now that the media are trying against all odds to fight the physical threat emanating from armed groups, attacks of all sorts from the political opposition, from a government fringe, from religious and military groups may finally muzzle a press that already suffers an unprecedented level of self-censorship.Pakistan is ranked 158th of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders world press freedom index for 2014. From 2009 to 2011, the country was the deadliest one for journalists. Over the past three years, at least 18 journalists have been killed in the country.Murders of media workers Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder News Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire January 28, 2021 Find out more Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists News Follow the news on Pakistan News RSF_en Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Pakistan: Pro-government activists besiege Dawn building in Islamabad

first_img April 21, 2021 Find out more The motive for the protest was an article in Dawn about the London Bridge attack in the United Kingdom on 30 November in which three people were killed including the man who murdered the other two. Quoting the London Daily Telegraph, Dawn identified the killer as “a British citizen born in the UK and of Pakistani origin.” Dawn has been subjected to repeated acts of harassment by members of the ruling Pakistan Movement for Justice (PTI) ever since one of its former journalists, Cyril Almeida, wrote an exclusive article in 2016 about the links between civilians and military at the highest levels of the Pakistani state. Incitement to violence Organisation Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire News This simple, widely verified piece of information was regarded by the protesters as an insult to Pakistan and, to judge by their chants, grounds for demanding that Dawn be banned outright. After more than three hours, and long negotiations, the newspaper’s management managed to get the crowd to disperse, but not without being threatened and warned. The police did not intervene. June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Pakistani authorities to issue a public and unequivocal condemnation of last night’s siege of the Islamabad headquarters of Pakistan’s oldest English-language daily, Dawn, by an angry crowd of demonstrators calling for it to be banned on completely spurious grounds. “This show of force, which was clearly orchestrated, constitutes yet another absolutely unacceptable act of intimidation towards Pakistan’s leading daily,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The information we have obtained indicates that the federal government was, at the very least a passive accomplice if not the actual instigator of behaviour that is unacceptable in a democracy. We call on Prime Minister Imran Khan to publicly condemn these excesses, failing which he will be held personally responsible for this alarming press freedom violation.” PakistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence Violence RSF_en to go further Receive email alerts PakistanAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence Violence Help by sharing this information Fare from being spontaneous, the siege was the result of a series of ambiguous tweets by leading figures close to the ruling party and government. News News The entrance to the building that houses the newspaper and its sister TV channel, Dawn TV, was occupied by the protesters, who prevented anyone from entering or exiting, threatened any employees who tried to enter, and demanded written apologies for Dawn’s purported offence.

‘Polling Officers Infected With Covid-19 During Election Duty Be Treated At Par With Covid Warriors’: Telangana High Court

first_imgTop Stories’Polling Officers Infected With Covid-19 During Election Duty Be Treated At Par With Covid Warriors’: Telangana High Court Akshita Saxena17 May 2021 12:40 AMShare This – xThe Telangana High Court has observed that polling officers who have been infected with Covid-19 during the recent municipality elections in the State must be treated at par with Covid-warriors. A Division Bench of Chief Justice Hima Kohli and Justice B. Vijaysen Reddy said that the State must ensure that such polling officers are given adequate medical treatment and all such benefits that are offered to a Covid-warrior. The direction came in a suo moto matter being heard by the Bench to address all Covid-related issues. During the hearing, Advocate Pujitha Gorantla informed the Bench that around 500 teachers, who were assigned polling duties during the municipal elections have tested Covid-positive and out of them, 15 have already succumbed to the virus. She urged that a direction may be passed for compensating the families of such teachers, as was done by the Allahabad High Court.The Allahabad High Court had observed that no one had volunteered to render services during election and the State authorities, being well aware of the threat of pandemic, forced the polling officers to go on election duty.Thus, the State must grant at least Rs. 1 crore as ex-gratia compensation to the families of polling officers who died due to COVID-19 while after the UP Panchayat polls.Allahabad High Court Says Compensation Must Be At Least ₹ One Crore For Death Of Polling Officers Due To COVID During Election DutyIt observed that the compensation of Rs. 30,00,000/- announced by the UP Government is very less.Taking not of these submissions, the Division Bench ordered, “The State is directed to take immediate steps to ensure that those who have been infected during election duty are given adequate treatment and are treated at par with Covid warriors and are given all benefits to which a Covid warrior is entitled.” Advocate Pujitha also urged the Court to pass directions to the Department of Health, Medical and Family Welfare for protection of children who have been orphaned during the pandemic due to demise of both their parents. She submitted that illegal online adoptions are happening frequently and this may increase cases of human trafficking. The Court has asked the department to file an affidavit as to the manner in which such children are being rehabilitated.Significantly, the Telangana High Court had cautioned the State authorities against conducting elections in the middle of a pandemic. There is a genuine apprehension that the elections going to be conducted on April 30 will turn out to be “super spreaders” with cases exploding within a week or ten days after the elections, it had observed.’Do Lives Matter Or Elections?’: Telangana High Court Asks State Election Commission Over Decision To Conduct Local Elections Amid Covid-19 Pandemic To be Updated with OrderTagsTelangana High Court ELECTIONS AMID COVID #Covid warriors Next Storylast_img read more

Missouri man charged with setting fire to an Islamic center

first_imgCape Girardeau Fire DepartmentBy ALEXANDER MALLIN and CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo.) — A fire that caused structural damage at a mosque in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, hours after the start of Ramadan was allegedly set by man who caused property damage to the same building over 10 years ago, police said.Nicholas Proffitt was arrested on Monday without incident for allegedly setting fire to the Islamic Center of Cape Girardeau.Federal prosecutors announced on Wednesday that Proffitt was charged with maliciously damaging a building by means of a fire. Cape Girardeau police said he is also facing state charges of burglary, arson and property damage as he was “knowingly motivated to do so by reason of a motive related to the religion of the people who worship at the Islamic Center.”Proffitt, 42, was allegedly seen on the center’s surveillance cameras on April 24 entering the building with two containers by breaking a glass window.The alleged break-in occurred hours after the beginning of Ramadan, a time of spiritual reflection for Muslims who pray and fast for the entire holy month.“Attacks against houses of worship are attacks against people of faith and their right to exercise their religion freely and without fear,” said Assistant Attorney General Eric Dreiband of the Civil Rights Division in a statement, adding, “The Justice Department will defend the right of all people in our country to exercise their religion, no matter the creed.”Proffitt allegedly slashed liquid that were in the containers inside the center and ignited the fire with “some type of fire starter,” prosecutors said.No injuries were reported.He’s being held on a no-bond warrant and is expected to face a judge for arraignment on April 30.Proffitt was previously jailed in 2009 on charges of first-degree property damage for throwing rocks at the same mosque.Federal prosecutors said this is an “ongoing investigation,” suggesting Proffitt could potentially face federal hate crime charges moving forward.
