The design of the building was influenced by spatial conditions of the terrain. From the central and at the same time the highest point of a two-hectare plot there is a beautiful view over the Lodz Hills Landscape Park. Therefore it was clear that the house had to be located in this very spot. It is worth highlighting that our clients were very aware investors, who travelled a lot and were sensitive to the beauty of architecture. Save this picture!Courtesy of ZAG ArchitekciThey valued simplicity, functionality and they knew perfectly well what to expect of their future home. They wanted a living space with large windows and a southern exposure and a night zone oriented to the east, so that the sun beams would lighten up the house from early hours of the morning. Taking into account the investor’s suggestions, we came up with a simple form laid out on the plan of a prolonged rectangle, covered with a gable roof, which in one-third of the length of the building changes into a pent roof, creating a small usable garret.

From the northern side they create a canopy over the entrance and from the southern side they provide some shade over the terrace. In summer the loggias give the house the much wanted shadow, while in winter, when the sun is low, they do not prevent the light from entering the house. Save this picture!Courtesy of ZAG ArchitekciThe alcoves of the loggias are covered with graphite elevation slabs, and are contrasting with the remaining white plastered walls of the building. They also impart the body of the house a dynamic form and highlight its horizontal features. Save this picture!Courtesy of ZAG ArchitekciThe elevation is dominated by horizontal set of lines, which nicely corresponds to the surrounding landscape of fields and meadows. The lack of eaves and introduction of submerged roof drains helped to create a minimalistic and even ascetic form of the building. Save this picture!Courtesy of ZAG ArchitekciIn the development of the functional arrangement of the interior the key elements were the views from the windows and a good sun exposure. The whole day zone, including the living room, the dining room and the kitchen, was designed as a single space opening with large picture windows to the south, over a spacious terrace and a beautiful view. Save this picture!Courtesy of ZAG ArchitekciThe night zone, that is the bedroom with a bathroom and the dressing room are located in the eastern part of the building. The rooms in the northern part: the study, the laundry room, a bathroom and two guest rooms upstairs do not need to be so brightly lit. Save this picture!Courtesy of ZAG ArchitekciThe interior of the house does not follow the minimalistic form of the exterior. It is rather cosy and snug thanks to its bright wooden floors, diffused light and colourful elements, such as a red carpet or patterned cushions.

Joint appeal to Afghan government by Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica one month after interpreter’s abduction

first_img Receive email alerts Il Manifesto reporter Giulana Sgrena, a former hostage in Iraq, also spoke at the demonstration, saying there should be no difference in the treatment of Italian hostages and those of other nationalities. On other side of the podium from which she spokes, large photos of Nasqhbandi and Hanefi were displayed. Parliamentarians Giovanni Russo Spena and Furio Colombo, and another former hostage in Iraq, Simona Torretta, also paid tribute to the two captives.Ten Afghan and Italian journalists, including the president of the National Union of Afghan Journalists, Fazel Sancharaki, gave a news conference yesterday in Kabul in which they also appealed to the Taliban to free their fellow journalist, Nasqhbandi.Corriere della Sera reporter Lorenzo Cremonesi said: “We, Afghan and Italian journalists and media assistants, would like to appeal directly to the Taliban and in particular to Commander Mullah Dadullah, who is holding our colleague Adjmal Nasqhbandi hostage, to release him immediately.” Duilio Giammaria of the Italian TV network Rai called on the Afghan authorities to give the so far unknown reasons why Hanefi is being held. RSF_en One month after Adjmal Nasqhbandi’s abduction on 5 march, Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica urged the Afghan government to do everything possible to release the Afghan interpreter Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Reporters Without Borders and the Italian daily La Repubblica today issued a joint appeal to the Afghan government to do everything possible to obtain the release of La Repubblica correspondent Daniele Mastrogiacomo’s Afghan interpreter, Adjmal Nasqhbandi, who will begin his second month in captivity tomorrow.Nasqhbandi and Mastrogiacomo were kidnapped together on 5 March but, unlike the Italian reporter, who was released on 19 March, Nasqhbandi is still being held by Taliban under the command of Mullah Dadullah.Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica also urged the Afghan authorities to immediately release Rahmatullah Hanefi, the personnel chief of a hospital run by the Italian NGO Emergency in the southern town of Lashkar Gah, who has reportedly been held without charge in an Afghan prison since 20 March.“Mullah Dadullah’s death threats against Nasqhbandi are extremely reprehensible,” the press freedom organisation and the newspaper said. “It is clear the Taliban have already obtained a great deal by means of this deplorable blackmail for which there is no justification. We call on the Afghan government and all those with any influence to do everything they can to get Nasqhbandi freed. We also call for Hanefi’s immediate release. His arrest without charge and without any reason being given is unacceptable.”Dadullah addressed President Hamid Karzai in a video broadcast by the TV channel Sky TG24 on 29 March, threatening to kill Nasqhbandi if Karzai did not release two of Dadullah’s men in return. “If Karzai really is Afghanistan’s president, he must negotiate Adjmal’s release” he said. “Karzai has so far negotiated the release of foreigners but never the release of an Afghan citizen. If there is no negotiation, we will kill him.” The Taliban originally promised to release Nasqhbandi at the same time as Mastrogiacomo. Their Afghan driver, Sayed Agha, who was kidnapped with them, was beheaded on 16 March, three days before Mastrogiacomo was freed.Hanefi was reportedly arrested one day after Mastrogiacomo’s release, in which he played a key role. An Italian foreign ministry spokesman announced on 2 April that a Red Cross delegation had been able to visit Hanefi in an undisclosed location.During a demonstration by some 400 people on Navone Square in Rome on 1 April to demand the release of both Nasqhbandi and Hanefi, Mastrogiacomo’s sister read out a message from her brother to the Afghan and Italian governments, to the UN, to NGOs working in Afghanistan and to foreign embassies in Kabul. “Do your utmost to get my friends freed,” he said, adding: “My heart and my thoughts are with them.” AfghanistanAsia – Pacific March 11, 2021 Find out more AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Afghanistan to go further Newscenter_img Organisation News RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan June 2, 2021 Find out more May 3, 2021 Find out more April 4, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Joint appeal to Afghan government by Reporters Without Borders and La Repubblica one month after interpreter’s abduction Help by sharing this information News News Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report sayslast_img read more

Rights groups call for boycott of Beijing 2022 Winter Games

first_img WhatsApp TOKYO (AP) — A coalition of 180 rights groups on Wednesday called for a boycott of next year’s Beijing Winter Olympics tied to reported human rights abuses against ethnic minorities in China. The games are to open in one year, on Feb. 4, 2022, and are set to go forward despite the pandemic. The coalition is composed of groups representing Tibetans, Uighurs, Inner Mongolians, residents of Hong Kong and others. The group has issued an open letter to governments calling for a boycott of the Olympics “to ensure they are not used to embolden the Chinese government’s appalling rights abuses and crackdowns on dissent.” Rights groups have previously asked the IOC to move the games from China. Olympic leaders have largely ignored the demands and say it’s only a sporting body that does not get involved with politics. The groups said because of the IOC’s inaction “it now falls on governments to take a stand and demonstrate that they have the political will to push back against China’s reprehensible human rights abuses.” Pro-Tibet activists held up their flags Wednesday outside the International Olympic Committee headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. Beijing hosted the 2008 Olympics, which it promised would improve human rights in the country. Instead, the groups say the prestige of the Olympics has led to “a gross increase on the assault on communities living under its rule.” The situation of the Uighurs in northwestern China has received most of the attention. Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated on his first day in office that he believed genocide was being committed against Xinjiang’s ethnic minorities. China has brushed off the criticisms as interference in its internal affairs and politicization of sports. It has reacted strongly to charges of genocide. One Chinese official called it the “lie of the century.” Since 2016, China has swept a million or more Uighurs and other predominantly Muslim minorities into prisons and indoctrination camps that the state calls training centers, according to estimates by researchers and rights groups. People have been subjected to torture, sterilization and political indoctrination in addition to forced labor as part of an assimilation campaign, according to former residents and detainees, as well as experts and leaked government documents. China at first denied the existence of the internment areas. It later acknowledged them, but denied any abuses and says the steps it has taken are necessary to combat terrorism and a separatist movement. “The IOC refused to listen in 2008, defending its decision with claims that they would prove to be a catalyst for improved human rights,” the letter says. “As human rights experts predicted, this decision proved to be hugely misplaced; not only did China’s human rights record not improve but violations increased substantially without rebuke. ——— More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP—Sports By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Pinterest Rights groups call for boycott of Beijing 2022 Winter Games TAGS  Twitter WhatsAppcenter_img Local NewsSports Facebook Pinterest Previous articlePlaintiffs Announce Proposed $2 Billion Class Settlement in Monsanto Roundup™ Injury LitigationNext articleUnited States Scleroderma Market and Competitive Landscape Report 2021: Epidemiology, Key Products Marketed, Market Valuations and Forecast, Drugs Sales and Market Shares – ResearchAndMarkets.com Digital AIM Web Support Twitter Facebooklast_img read more

If we get that, I’ll be reasonably confident in inflation returning to 2 percent.”New York Fed President William DudleyIn late September, Dudley projected that the Fed may raise rates this year “if the economy continues on the same trajectory it’s on…and everything else suggests that’s likely to continue…then there is a pretty strong case for lifting off,” he said in a Wall Street Journal interview.However, contradictory to these remarks, in his recent CNBC interview Dudley seemed to back pedal on his previous statement, noting that he still predicts a rate hike this year, “but it’s a forecast and we’re going to get a lot of data between now and December, so it’s not a commitment.”The debate over whether it was time to raise rates as intensified as economic volatility in China has caused turbulence in the U.S. stock market in August. Following this, Dudley said that a rate increase in September seemed “less compelling” following turbulent stock market activity.At the September meeting, the Federal Reserve decided to keep the federal funds target rate at zero to 1/4 percent, where it has been for nine years.”In determining how long to maintain this target range, the Committee will assess progress—both realized and expected—toward its objectives of maximum employment and 2 percent inflation,” the Fed said in a statement. “This assessment will take into account a wide range of information, including measures of labor market conditions, indicators of inflation pressures and inflation expectations, and readings on financial and international developments. The Committee anticipates that it will be appropriate to raise the target range for the federal funds rate when it has seen some further improvement in the labor market and is reasonably confident that inflation will move back to its 2 percent objective over the medium term.The FOMC minutes from the September meeting showed that the Fed’s concern mostly lingers around global economic troubles, but they still intend to raise rates before the end of 2015.”The concerns about global economic growth and turbulence in financial markets led to greater uncertainty among market participants about the likely timing of the start of the normalization of the stance of U.S. monetary policy,” the minutes said. “Based on federal funds futures, the probability of a first increase in the target range for the federal funds rate at the September meeting fell slightly.”Even though most officials indicated that economic conditions will allow the hike to happen later this year, “the committee decided that it was prudent to wait for additional information confirming that the economic outlook had not deteriorated.’’Click here to read/watch the CNBC interview.Click here to read the WSJ interview.

Khulbe today dismissed a PIL filed by BJP leader Dr. Subramaniam Swamy challenging the constitutional validity of  Act. The Court, however, read down Section 22 of the Act. Article 26 of the Constitution confers freedom to manage religious affairs and, thereunder, subject to public order, morality and health. It provides that every religious denomination or any section thereof shall have the right :-(a) to establish and maintain institutions for religious and charitable purposes; (b) to manage its own affairs in matters of religion;(c) to own and acquire movable and immovable property; and (d) to administer such property in accordance with law. The contention of Dr. Swamy in this case was that these temples belonged to a religious denomination of Hindus professing Sanathana Dharma or a section thereof. Dr. Subramanian Swamy referred to the definition clauses in, and to certain Sections of the 2019 Act to contend that the same are an legislative acknowledgement of these temples belonging to a religious denomination of Hindus professing Sanathana Dharma or a section thereof.Uttarakhand HC Upholds Constitutional Validity Of Uttarakhand Char Dham Devasthanam Management Act [Read Judgment]The State contended that Hindus professing Sanatana Dharma cannot be called a religious denomination; the mere fact that the temple is a Hindu temple would not bring it within the ambit of Article 26 of the Constitution. “Hindu Dharma” and “Sanatana Dharma” are synonyms, submitted the State.According to it, to complain of violation of their fundamental right under Article 26, the following conditions must be satisfied: (i) the person claiming the right under Article 26 must be a religious denomination or a section thereof; (ii) the said religious denomination should have established the religious institution of which it claims a right to maintain; (iii) the said denomination must be managing its own affairs with respect to religion; (iv) such management must be by a denomination, and not by an individual; (v) only then would the said denomination have the right to acquire moveable and immovable properties; (vi) the right of the religious denomination to administer its property can be regulated by law; (viii) these facts must be specifically pleaded in the Writ Petition; and in the absence of any such plea, no contention regarding violation of Article 26 can be examined. The court, referring to various Supreme Court judgments in this regard, concluded that, while any sect or sub-sect, professing certain religious cult having a common faith and common spiritual organisation, may be termed a religious denomination, no caste, sub-caste or sect of the Hindu religion, who worship mainly a particular deity or god, can be termed as such. It said: Believers of a particular religion are to be distinguished from denominational worshippers. Thus, Hindu believers, in general, including those of the Shaivite and Vaishnavite form of worship, are not denominational worshippers, but form part of the general Hindu religious form of worship. (Indian Young Lawyers Association[55]). As the believers of the Shaiva form (or the Vaishnavite form) of worship are not a denominational sect or a section thereof, but are Hindus as such, they are entitled to the protection under Articles 25 and 26 of the Constitution, but not to the protection, in particular of Clauses (b) and (d) of Article 26, as a religious denomination in the matter of management, administration and governance of the temples under the Act. (Sri Adi Visheshwara [5]). We find no merit, therefore, in the submission that Hindus, professing and having faith in Sanatana Dharma, constitute a religious denomination, or that the definition clauses in the 2019 Act (where this terms finds place) is a legislative acknowledgement that they constitute a religious denomination. (Para 87) While any sect or sub-sect, professing certain religious cult having a common faith and common spiritual organisation, may be termed a religious denomination, no caste, sub-caste or sect of the Hindu religion, who worship mainly a particular deity or god, can be termed as such. Hindus as such are not a denomination/section/sect; nor as Hindus, professing and having faith in Sanatana Dharma, one such. (Para 89)In this context, the court noted that the pleadings are also silent regarding the religious denomination whose Article 26 rights have, allegedly, been taken away by the 2019 Act. The Court observed that it is no even the case of Dr.Swamy that any of the Chaar Dhaam temples have been established by a religious denomination and consequently no right is available, under clauses (a), (c) and (d) of Article 26, to manage the Char Dham temples as they are not established by a religious denomination. It added:”By the use of the word “such” in Article 26(d), the word “property” referred to therein, is the “property” referred to in clause (c) of Article 26 in terms of which the religious denomination has been conferred the right to own “and” acquire property. The words,” establish and maintain” in Article 26(a) must be read conjunctively, and it is only institutions which a religious denomination establishes which it can claim to maintain. The right, under clause (a) of Article 26, is available only where the institution is established by a religious denomination, and it is in that event only that it can claim to maintain it. ” (Para 91)The Court also explains the concept of ‘Hinduism’ and ‘Sanathana Dharma’ in its judgment. It further observed: Even if this contention, that these Chaar Dhaam Temples are being managed by a religious denomination of Hindus, professing and having faith in Sanatana Dharma, is presumed to have some force, a bare reading of Sections 3(1) and (2) of the Act would show that it is only persons, who follow Hindu Religion, (which is defined in Section 2(l) to mean such sect of Hindus professing Santhana Dharma or having faith in it), who can be nominated as the Chairman and members of the Board, to manage the secular affairs of the Chaar Dhaams and other temples referred to in the 2019 Act. (Para 90)The Court also made the following observations regarding the scope of Article 26.The rights conferred by Article 26 are not unqualified. Where the denominational rights would substantially diminish Article 25(2)(b), the former must yield to the latter. However, when the ambit of Article 25(2)(b) is not substantially affected, the rights of a “denomination”, as distinct from the rights of the “public”, may be given effect to. However, such rights must be “strictly” denominational in nature. Since the right granted under Article 26 is to be harmoniously construed with Article 25(2)(b), the right to manage its own affairs in matters of religion, guaranteed by Article 26(b) in particular, is subject to laws made under Article 25(2)(b) which throw open religious institutions of a public character to all classes and sections of HindusArticle 26 does not create rights in any denomination which it never had. It merely safeguards and guarantees continuance of an existing right which such denomination, or the section, had. If the denomination never had the right to manage the property of a temple, it cannot claim protection under Article 26.If the affair, which is controlled by the statute, is essentially secular in character, Article 26(b) cannot be said to have been contravened. Whenever a claim is made on behalf of the religious denomination, that the fundamental right guaranteed to it to manage its own affairs in matters of religion is contravened, it is necessary to consider whether the practice in question is religious, or the affairs in respect of which the right of management is alleged to have been contravened are affairs in matters of religion. If they are, then, of course, the rights guaranteed by Article 26(b) cannot be contravened.In regard to affairs in matters of religion, the right of management, given to a religious body, is a guaranteed fundamental right which no legislation can take away. On the other hand, as regards the property which a religious denomination is entitled to own and acquire, it has undoubtedly the right to administer such property, but only in accordance with law. This means that the State can regulate the administration of such properties by means of laws validly enacted.The law referred to in Article 26(d) must, therefore, leave the right of administration to the religious denomination itself, subject to such restrictions and regulations as it might choose to impose. A law which takes away the right of administration from the hands of a religious denomination altogether, and vests it in any other authority, would result in violation of the right guaranteed under Clause (d) of Article 26.As long as the law does not totally divest the administration of a religious institution or endowment, by a religious denomination, the State has the general right to regulate the right of administration of a religious or charitable institution or endowment; and such a law may choose to impose such restrictions the need for which is felt the most, and to provide a remedy therefor.

Watch Before It’s… Troy University Chancellor Jack Hawkins, Jr. said, when he came to Troy University in 1989, only 40 international students were enrolled.“Today, we have nearly 1,000 international students representing 80 countries enrolled,” he said. “On any given day, you could hear 100 different languages being spoken on campus. Troy is one of the most diverse cities in Alabama and was recently voted one of the 50 best college towns in America.”Hawkins encouraged the international students to be involved with the student organizations on campus in order to make the best use of their time and investment.“We have 130 student organizations – theater, music, athletics – so we get out of our comfort zones and become involved,” he said.The chancellor said Troy University’s goal is for its graduates to be globally competitive and, therefore, add value to their lives and careers. He also emphasized the importance of building relationships.“In the end, life is all about relationships,” Hawkins said.Shelia Jackson, Troy Public Relations director, said the city looks forward each year to hosting the reception for the international students.“We want to welcome the international students to Troy and make them aware of all Troy has to offer,” she said. “Following the reception and a tour of the Johnson Center, we took the students on a tour our downtown area including city hall and The Square. For a year or more, these students will be a part of our community, and we want them to know we are happy to have them here and are available to assist them with any needs they might have.”Peter Lundbye, director of international recruitment at Troy University, said the number of international students for the fall semester is uncertain until all the students arrive.“We are still picking them up at the airport, but we expect the number to be around 1,000,” he said.Lundbye expressed appreciation to the City of Troy for hosting the reception and downtown tour, which is a good way to introduce the students to the city.He said the university’s Reach Out program is a way for the students from abroad to learn first-hand about the American and Southern cultures.“Some Troy families become host families and invite international students into their homes and also plan activities for them,” he said.Anyone who would like to host an international student may contact Megan Simon, student advisor, at Troy University or via email at [email protected] By Secrets Revealedlast_img read more

first_imgiStock/Nastasic(RIVERSIDE, Calif.) — An anonymous tipster led California police to uncover one of the largest marijuana farms ever found in the city of Riverside, officials said on Friday.Authorities in Riverside, California, were called to a 10-acre property on McAllister Street in the Greenbelt neighborhood on Thursday where they found more than 40,000 marijuana plants growing inside a large greenhouse.Scott Albertsons, a neighbor to the grow operation, told Los Angeles ABC station KABC that the land was sold about six months ago and that the buyers “came in and put up this new fence, which you couldn’t see through.”The neighbor said the farm began to produce a strong odor.“We didn’t call in,” Albertsons told KABC. “We figured a policeman would drive by and smell it because you could smell it, especially in the evening and early morning.”The Riverside Police Department estimated that the street value of the plants to be $20 million. No arrests were made.It took officers 24 hours to remove the cannabis plants along with thousands of pounds of fertilizer and pesticides.Although it’s unclear if the farm was licensed by the state as a cultivation site, marijuana laws in California liimit private residences to growing only six cannabis plants or less.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
