The relationships between each other and the context in which they find themselves are the basis for imagining the experience of a beach address. We proposed a simple house, essentially unpretentious, but with a strong and imposing character.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiTwo volumes mark the corner: a wooden box placed inside another apparent concrete box marks the social area. This simple set of volumes with pure materials added to the charred wood that covers the intimate volume and balanced with the lightness of the glass cloth in the social area, brings a contemporary character to the building. The social area, in fact, opens to the corner, a place of movement, of socialization, allowing the generation of meetings and new relationships.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiInside the house, the wooden lining stands out as one of the strongest elements of its interior, which has a raw, gray and graphite palette. The highlight is the suspended fireplace, which divides the living room from the entrance hall. The panel that lines the kitchen follows the corridor, camouflaging the doors of the intimate area and generating unity to the volume.Project gallerySee allShow lessHow COVID-19 Will Shape Architectural EducationArticlesHerzog & de Meuron’s Design for Chelsea FC Stadium Will Not Move ForwardArchitecture News Share Year: Area: 160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Marcelo Donadussi+ 31Curated by Matheus Pereira Share House R1 / Studio Bloco Arquitetura “COPY” Brazil ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/939286/house-r1-studio-bloco-arquitetura Clipboard “COPY” Projects CopyHouses•XANGRI-LÁ, Brazil Photographs 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/939286/house-r1-studio-bloco-arquitetura Clipboard Houses ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeStudio Bloco ArquiteturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesXangri-láBrazilPublished on May 12, 2020Cite: “House R1 / Studio Bloco Arquitetura” [Casa R1 / Studio Bloco Arquitetura] 12 May 2020.

News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” HondurasAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more HondurasAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Honduras Help by sharing this information to go further Reports RSF_en Five alleged members of a gang suspected of abducting and murdering radio HRN journalist Alfredo Villatoro were arrested in a police raid in Cofradía, in the northern department of Cortés, on 27 May. The arrests bring to 10 the number of people now charged in connection with the murder of Villatoro, whose body was found on 15 May.The latest arrests came two days after major demonstrations by media and journalists’ organizations in five Honduran cities in protest against impunity for acts of violence against media personnel.“We take note of the speed with which the authorities are investigating this murder, which has shaken public opinion,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The significance of such a determined police operation should not however divert attention from the need to carefully establish all the circumstances surrounding Villatoro’s murder and the role of all those involved. “We call on the authorities to deploy the same resources in the 28 other – mostly unsolved –murders of journalists which, according to the National Human Rights Commission (CONADEH) have taken place since 2003 (23 of them since the June 2009 coup), and in all the other cases of people who have paid with their lives for providing information, including human rights activists, lawyers, and representatives of NGOs and community organizations.”Aged 15 to 29, those arrested in the 27 May raid were named as Edgar Francisco and Osman Fernando Osorio (two brothers), Marvin Alonso Gómez, Xiomara Flores Bú and a teenage girl whose identity was not released. They finally surrendered to the police after mediation by Canal 6 journalist Edy Andino. The three men have so far been charged with criminal association and illegal carriage of firearms.Two sisters, Jessica and Katlin Zambrano, and their cousin, Marvin Enrique Oliva, were arrested a few days after the discovery of Villatoro’s body on charges of abduction and complicity. And two prison inmates, Juan Ramón Fonseca and Miguel Ángel Álvarez, have also been linked to the case. Álvarez, a police officer, is alleged to have conducted ransom negotiations with the Villatoro family by mobile phone from his prison cell.According to the Committee for Free Expression (C-Libre), a Reporters Without Borders partner organization, suspects were arrested in two other cases in March. Former police officer David Lanza Valdez was arrested in Cortés department in connection with the August 2010 murder of journalist Israel Zelaya Díaz. And in Colón department, Gabriel Menocal Vargas was arrested for the murder of journalist Fausto Elio Hernández, who was hacked to death with a machete on 11 March of this year.But the investigation into the murder of journalist David Meza Montesinos in March 2010 in La Ceiba has ground to a halt since the main suspect was released at the end of 2011.

RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Saudi ArabiaMiddle East – North Africa Amnesty International (AI) Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) CIVICUS World Alliance for Citizen Participation Front Line Defenders (FLD)Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR)Human Rights Watch (HRW)International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) under the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights Defenders Reporters without Borders (RSF) World Organization Against Torture (OMCT) under the Observatory for the Protection of Human Rights to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more We are gravely concerned about the worsening situation of human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia as they continue to face severe risks for their peaceful activism. Many of them are still in detention on fabricated charges where they are inadequately protected from torture and other ill-treatment, and subjected to inhumane conditions. The right to freedom of expression is violated, as they are banned from freely expressing their opinions on the Internet or through other media, and face threats, intimidation, arbitrary arrests, prosecutions and harassment as a result. Both the cyber-crime and counter-terror laws, adopted in 2007 and 2014 respectively, are arbitrarily applied to target peaceful human rights defenders. We, the undersigned human rights organizations, are writing to ask you during this holy month of Ramadan, that you release all the detained human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience, including Walid Abu Al-Khair, Dr. Mohammed Al-Qahtani, Dr. Abdullah Al-Hamid, Dr. Abdulkarim Al-Khodr, Raif Badawi, Mohammad Al-Bajadi, Fadel Al-Manasef, Fawzan Al-Harbi, Sheikh Sulaiman Al-Rashudi, Issa Al-Nukheifi and all of their colleagues. This move will constitute a positive step and reassure the international community, as all of these activists have not committed any offense whatsoever and they have simply exercised their right to peaceful and legitimate work in the defense and promotion of human rights.We are very concerned about the physical and psychological integrity of these human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience in the wake of the many documented reports of their ill-treatment and lack of access to necessary health care. We consider that the situation of detained human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia is inconsistent with the United Nations provisions set forth in the “Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.”This should also comprise the right for local human rights organizations to work legally in a safe and enabling environment without fear of reprisals and free from any form of intimidation and harassment. This requires the abolition of all laws that unlawfully limit or restrict freedom of expression through the traditional media or social media networks. As noted above, the cybercrime and counter-terrorism laws, in particular, have been applied in an arbitrary manner to silence human rights defenders and to unlawfully restrict freedom of expression. While we recognize the rights and duties of all states to fight terrorism, we believe as human rights organizations that it is essential to confront such threats in a manner which respects human rights and complies with Saudi Arabia’s obligations under international law. That means that human rights defenders must not be prevented or impeded from exercising their rights and responsibilities to defend human rights. We fear that the absence of a safe and enabling environment for the defense and promotion of human rights, and the repression and imprisonment of human rights defenders, has contributed some to resort to violence. We also strongly believe that a real national dialogue with the entire spectrum of peaceful views in the Kingdom is the safest way to accommodate and contain differences.Your majesty, you mentioned in your meeting with Saudi Arabian human rights bodies on 22 May 2015, that you are working to “achieve justice, and to ensure freedom of expression, and to address the causes of division and its reasons, and not to discriminate, as there is no difference between a citizen and another, or between one region and another, for sons of the nation are equal in rights and duties.” Unfortunately, these words have not yet reflected in practice. We urge you today to ensure that the values and principles you have clearly espoused and called for are upheld in reality.Finally, we call on you to guarantee in all circumstances that all human rights defenders in Saudi Arabia are able to carry out their peaceful and legitimate human rights activities without fear of reprisals and free of intimidation, including judicial harassment.

Linkedin Email WhatsApp Facebook University Hospital LimerickA RECORD high for the number of patients waiting on trolleys at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) was set this week, when figures from the INMO showed there were 70 admitted patients waiting for a bed.This is the highest number since the nursing union began counting the numbers of waiting patients. On Tuesday, 46 people were on trolleys in the Emergency Department and a further 24 were waiting for an in-patient bed in overflow wards.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The numbers had decreased to 64 during the week.Limerick Labour TD Jan O’Sullivan said she is “calling for funding to open all available beds in hospitals in the region, for extra step-down beds where they can be provided and for additional Home Care Packages. It needs an urgent interim response from Government.”“No other region has the pressure we have and all other regions are better resourced for the populations they serve”.In a statement, hospital management said “UL Hospitals Group sincerely regrets that any patient has to face long waits in our emergency department.“The emergency department at UHL is one of the busiest in the country and the numbers presenting continue to increase year on year. Attendances to the end of December 2018 were 72,037 – an increase of 6.2 percent on 2017.The statement said the emergency department was exceptionally busy in recent days.“In the week between Monday, February 18 and Sunday, February 24, a total of 1,453 presented to the emergency department. In the 24-hour period to midnight on Monday, February 25, a total of 210 people attended the Emergency Department. We continue to see high volumes of frail elderly with complex medical conditions and regret that anyone faces long wait times while we prioritise the sickest patients. The Department is also seeing high volumes of surgical patients at present.“We are again asking members of the public to please consider all their care options before presenting to the emergency department at UHL.Injury units in Ennis and Nenagh are open from 8am to 8pm, and St John’s is open from 8am to 6pm for the treatment of broken bones, dislocations, sprains strains, wounds, scalds and minor burns.“UHL has just over 450 inpatient beds; this is recognised as not being sufficient for the needs of the Mid West Region. The Group welcomes the commitment to increasing bed capacity at the hospital,” the statement concluded.

While inventory shortages, tight credit access, and lower than average salaries have made for a bleak picture for young adults, the speakers largely agreed that these represent temporary setbacks as the economy makes its way to stable ground.”It’s not that young people don’t want to purchase homes, it’s that they are delaying the purchase,” said Lisa Sturtevant, VP of research for the National Housing Conference. “Many of the reasons millennials are not forming households or making purchases are economic, so as the economy improves, we should see this group become more of a force in the housing market.”Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for Realtor.com, agreed, adding that members of Gen Y accounted for 37 percent of home shoppers over the summer and are expected to make up two-thirds of household formations in the coming years. Smoke also noted that from June through September, more than half of adults between the ages of 21 and 34 visited real estate websites or mobile apps.

The bench comprising of Justices Tarlok Singh Chauhan and Jyotsna Rewal Dua observed thus while dismissing two writ petitions. The petitioners in this case had challenged the notices by the Local authorities requiring them to vacate the houses which was temporarily allotted to them. While considering the petitions, the bench noted that the houses were allotted to them temporarily with clear understanding that the same would be vacated by them on 30.5.2019. Observing that their possession is unauthorized the bench said: The case in hand shows that frivolous litigation is sought to be prolonged by the petitioners and the same is a calculated venture involving no risk situation. After all, one has only to engage professionals to prolong litigation so as to deprive the rights of the parties and enjoy the fruits of illegalities. It is on account of such frivolous litigation that the court dockets are overflowing. The court also referred to various Supreme court judgment denouncing the abuse of process of the court by unscrupulous litigants. It said: It is because of such false and incoherent pleas by the parties due to which the judicial system in the country is chocked and such litigants consuming courts time for a wrong cause. Efforts are made by the parties to steal a march over their rivals by resorting to false and incoherent statements made before the Court. This clearly is the abuse of the process of the Court as the intent of the petitioners is to deceive and mislead the Court that too by taking shelter of falsehood, misrepresentation and suppression facts in the court proceedings. Materialism, opportunism and malicious intent have overshadowed the old ethos of litigative values for small gains. This Court is required to maintain strictness, vigilance over the abuse of the process of the Court and curb such tendencies with iron hands. While dismissing the writ petitions, the bench further observed: “The judicial system has been abused and virtually brought to its knees by unscrupulous litigants like the petitioners in this case. It has to be remembered that Court’s proceedings are sacrosanct and should not be polluted by unscrupulous litigants. The petitioners have abused the process of the Court.”Case no.: CWP Nos. 2451/2020 & 2452/2020Case name: Salma vs. State of H.PCoram: Justices Tarlok Singh Chauhan and Jyotsna Rewal Dua Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Story

sorsillo/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(BOSTON) — The governor of Massachusetts has rescinded a plan to shorten the sentences of inmates in the state’s prison system for getting COVID-19 vaccinations, officials said Thursday.Gov. Charlie Baker canceled the controversial plan less than a week after state Department of Correction Commissioner Carole Mici said in a memo that inmates could receive “earned good time” credit for getting the shot, writing, “I have determined the vaccine is significantly valuable to rehabilitation.”But a spokesperson for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security told ABC News on Thursday that Baker, a Republican, called off the plan as soon as he was briefed on it.“When the Governor’s office became aware of the memo, the decision was made to rescind it because the memo is not consistent with the Administration’s policies regarding reduced prison terms,” the spokesperson said in a statement.In her memo, dated Jan. 28, Mici said that more than 3,500 of the state’s prison inmates had already received the first dose of the two-dose vaccination. Mici referred to the program as the “Vaccine Rehabilitative Program.”Mici had offered 7 1/2 days of earned good time credit for inmates who watched and read educational materials about the virus and received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.“This will be the sole opportunity to earn EGT in this program category for the remainder of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mici wrote.“While we are working to stifle this virus through ‘herd immunity,’ we are not there yet,” Mici wrote. “We must remain vigilant by properly wearing masks, regularly hand washing/sanitizing and social distancing, as these practices continue to be our best defense.”Prisons and jails throughout the country have been the settings of some of the biggest COVID outbreaks that health experts say stem from being in crowded, confined spaces that make social distancing difficult.Data collected by The Associated Press and the Marshall Project shows that one in every five state and federal prisoners in the United States has tested positive for COVID.At least 275,000 prisoners throughout the country have been infected by the virus and more than 1,700 have died as of mid-December 2020, according to data reviewed by the news organizations.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
