Iranian traditional architecture has taught us how to create spaces safe, flexible, and responsive to the needs of residents. And modern architecture has taught us to eliminate unnecessary elements of architecture and not that of lifestyle. It also lets us add something to the form wherever it is necessary for the residents’ lifestyle. Vanoosh villa is an attempt to bring these lessons into reality; It is also vitally critical to look at the perception and reality of employee’s needs: 1. We should not be limited to the villa’s area. 2. Saferoom (Regarding the enormous number of guests) 3. PrivacySave this picture!© Mohammad Hassan EttefaghFirst, in order to achieve this demand, a dispersed and separate structure was used to formulate the overall layout of the villa. So, instead of having a villa in one part of the land, we designed its different spaces separately in several points of the land, relatively far away from each other. Second, these different spaces reduced to three main zones: A place for cooking, a place to sleep and a place to get together. Third, each of these functions has its own independent identity while they are connected to each other by some corridors.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!Ground floor planThese corridors have flexible­ walls which can be removed in moderate seasons and may strengthen the sense of isolation between the con­stituent parts. Furthermore, by using removable walls in the main parts this sense of isolation can be promoted more effectively. These parts are designed in a way to provide better ventilation and let prevailing winds come in from the north­west and cool the whole house in summer. All these are to reach an indoor-outdoor lifestyle that simultaneously new and rooted in our tradition.Save this picture!© Mohammad Hassan EttefaghIn response to the employer’s request for a safe room, it was designed like a small independent villa. This villa has been designed and placed in such a way to be less seen. The separate parts of the villa have been organized in such a manner to create cozy and introversive spaces in order to provide privacy for residents. Moreover, stretching a semi-open roof over project is another attempt to strengthen privacy and also is a good place for climbing plants espe­cially in the mild and humid climate of the North of Iran, where our project is located. This green cover extends the building to the surrounding environment. One may say that what we were looking for is the creation of private spaces open to nature and the surrounding environment. It opens to welcome you and closes to defend.Save this picture!© Mohammad Hassan EttefaghProject gallerySee allShow lessGYA House / Emac ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsTED Talk: Bjarke Ingels Explores Living and Building on MarsArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/927214/vanoosh-villa-residence-35-51-architecture-office Clipboardcenter_img CopyAbout this office35-51 ARCHITECTURE OfficeOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRoyanOn FacebookIranPublished on October 28, 2019Cite: “Vanoosh Villa Residence / 35-51 ARCHITECTURE Office” 28 Oct 2019.

En Alabama, policías, Klan y estado van juntos

first_imgDe acuerdo con un blog activista de Alabama, el Henry County Report, algunos policías y ex policías en Dothan-Alabama, plantaron evidencias falsas de drogas y armas de fuego en jóvenes negros sin antecedentes penales, de 1996 a 2004, lo que resultó en muchas convicciones aparentemente injustas. El artículo del 1 de diciembre del blog también culpa al fiscal de distrito Doug Valeska, del Distrito Judicial 20 de Alabama, de encubrir este hecho delictivo y proceder con el enjuiciamiento de personas inocentes.El blog además señala que los miembros del Departamento de Policía de Dothan pertenecen a una organización neo-confederada racista. Uno de los mencionados, el ex sargento Andy Hughes, es ahora director adjunto de Seguridad Nacional de Alabama. Un blog de fotos muestra a un grupo de hombres blancos posando con una gran bandera de la Confederación y los identifica como policías de Dothan, incluyendo a Hughes. (Al.com)El blogger, Jon Collins, del Proyecto de Justicia de Alabama, dice que sus cargos están corroborados por récords, algunos de los cuales ha publicado, filtrados por miembros del departamento de policía. Él declara que autenticó los documentos filtrados con varios policías, entre ellos un ex sargento de la Oficina de Asuntos Internos Dothan. (alabamajusticeproject.com)Medios sociales y corporativos rápidamente publicaron el informe, y rápidamente minimizaron los documentos aduciendo que no daban ninguna prueba definitiva de los cargos. Un comentario de la revista Slate dijo: “La evidencia que Carroll ha presentado hasta el momento no es suficiente. Eso no significa que el Departamento de Policía de Dothan es inocente de las acusaciones. Sólo significa que no podemos pretender que sabemos que sus policías son culpables de los crímenes que Carroll alega…. En este momento no sabemos lo que pasó en Dothan”. (Tinyurl.com/nho9hzp)Pero sí sabemos lo que pasó en Dothan. Si miramos más allá de los criterios estrechos de lo que constituyen “pruebas” dentro de un sistema de derecho burgués, podemos acusar de racismo a la policía de Dothan, la ciudad y al propio sistema de injusticia de Alabama.Podemos comenzar con el hecho de que el jefe de policía de Dothan Steve Parish nombró a su hijo, Nathan Bedford Parish, por el fundador y Gran Mago del Ku Klux Klan, Nathan Bedford Forrest.Luego podemos observar que en junio de 2015, un juez federal falló a favor de un caso presentado por un policía veterano negro contra la ciudad de Dothan. La orden establece que hubo un patrón de racismo en el departamento, incluyendo el hecho de que Parish y otros policías de Dothan han sido o son miembros de los Hijos de los Veteranos Confederados. Este grupo aboga por un retorno a un sistema de esclavitud y apartheid, y ha estado en la lista de “Vigilancia del Odio” del Southern Poverty Center porque los elementos derechistas más extremos se han apoderado de los capítulos locales. (tinyurl.com/p3fjp3b)El caso federal enumera muchos comentarios viles y artefactos racistas dentro de la estación de policía, incluyendo una representación de un presidente Barack Obama carbonizado y linchado. (tinyurl.com/hkf962w)Existe el racismo en el sistema jurídico local. El procurador general Doug Valeska, del Vigésimo Circuito Judicial, ha tenido casos impugnados en apelación debido a su exclusión sistemática de negros en los jurados, así como veredictos eliminados por “prueba ilícita y comentarios inapropiados a los jurados”. (Washington Post, 3 de diciembre)Hay una profunda historia de racismo entre la policía local en Alabama – desde los “patrulleros de esclavos” que aprehendían y golpeaban para retornarlos a la esclavitud a las/os negros que escapaban, hasta el programa ‘arrendamiento de condenados’ del tiempo de la era de Reconstrucción que re esclavizaba a los trabajadores negros liberados y pagaban sus salarios al Estado, en vez de a los trabajadores. Hoy en día, las “prisiones de deudores” obtienen ganancias cobrándole honorarios exorbitantes por los servicios judiciales a las/os prisioneros, principalmente gente de color.Después de la criminalización del trabajo de personas negras libres en todo el Sur en la década de 1870, además de estar atrapadas en el sistema ‘arrendamiento de condenados’, también los blancos individualmente les hacían trabajar por la fuerza – de hecho, otra esclavitud.Tal fue el caso en 1903, cuando un fiscal federal que estaba exponiendo cientos de casos de servidumbre involuntaria en Alabama recibió una desesperada llamada de un abogado de Dothan. Su cliente, Enoc Patterson, estaba retenido como peón – por el jefe de la policía de Dothan.En 1912, la ciudad de Dothan se convirtió en una ciudad totalmente blanca cometiendo “limpieza racial” cuando expulsó a toda la gente negra del pueblo en un motín de supremacía blanca. (Elliot Jaspin, “Aguas Amargas: la historia oculta de limpieza racial en Estados Unidos”)Este espantoso racismo no es una cosa del pasado en Dothan. En 2011 y 2013, paralelo a una oleada en EUA de reclutamiento racista, volantes del Ku Klux Klan fueron distribuidos en la ciudad, y en el 2009 el KKK había prendido fuego a una cruz en un barrio negro en la ciudad contigua de Ozark. (Dothan Eagle)En el Henry County Report, Jon Collins pide una investigación federal sobre el racismo actual en el sistema legal y en el Departamento de Policía de Dothan. Sin lugar a dudas, el racismo existe, dada la evidencia de la historia, así como los recientes casos de la corte federal – como existe en todo EUA.Quinton Parrish, un hombre afroamericano en la mira de la policía de Dothan, ha solicitado que intervenga el Departamento de Justicia de EUA. Describe las acciones de la policía de Dothan como “una forma de terrorismo doméstico que debe detenerse”. (Henry County Report, 7 de diciembre)Collins dice que las fuentes aún anónimas que filtraron los documentos esperan que “el estado de ánimo del país” es ahora tal que se pueda llamar la atención sobre la injusticia en Dothan.Al entrar EUA en un período de mayor crisis económica y belicismo, aumenta el que la gente de color, especialmente las/os inmigrantes y musulmanes, se conviertan en chivos expiatorios.La policía se creó para proteger los bienes e intereses de la clase propietaria. La función de la policía es mantener a todas/os los trabajadores y todas/os los oprimidos – mujeres, personas de color, personas con discapacidad y personas de géneros y sexualidades no conformistas – de levantarse juntas/os contra las brutales condiciones impuestas a nosotras/os por la explotación capitalista.Una de las fuerzas que cambian “el estado de ánimo del país” ha sido el activismo consistente contra la brutalidad policial y el terror estatal por el movimiento Vidas Negras Importan y sus aliadas/os en todo EUA.Ahora, la resistencia contra la campaña racista de Donald Trump, como el cierre exitoso de su manifestación recientemente en Carolina del Norte, está levantando solidaridad a través de un espectro cada vez más amplio de personas. Una Guardia de Defensa de Trabajadores contra el KKK ha sido puesta en marcha por varios locales de Vermont del sindicato United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America/UE.Una resistencia inquebrantable a la policía y a la injusticia estatal contra las/os trabajadores y todas/os los oprimidos sólo puede lograrse a través de organización militante antirracista.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Student group publicly burns newspapers and magazines

first_img to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today condemned the burning of newspapers and magazines by members of the Madheshi Student Front in Janakpur (southern Nepal) on 21 July and its threat to take further violence if the media did not report on the Madheshi community’s problems.”How can anyone hope to persuade the media to be interested in a cause by physically attacking it?” the worldwide press freedom organisation asked, calling on Madheshi groups to stop such action.Members of the Front, which is affiliated to the Madheshi People’s Rights Forum, attacked a delivery truck in the market-place in Janakpur and burned copies it was carrying of the dailies Kathmandu Post and Kantipur, the weekly Saptahik and other papers and magazines. They smashed the truck’s windows and then attacked a newsagent’s shop. Police were present but did not intervene for fear of being accused of violating human rights.The Front’s chairman told the Kathmandu Post that the attacks were because the press was not reporting on discrimination against Madheshis, a low caste making up about a third of the country’s population. He said the attack was a first warning to the press.

Government uses arrest on “seditious libel” charge to repress journalists

We call on the government to drop all the proceedings against journalists and to end this politically-motivated use of the judicial system to harass them.”Kahn-Sriber added: “It is not right for the CID to get involved in these cases and thereby short-circuit the Independent Media Commission (IMC). In cases of alleged defamation, the IMC, which could use reinforcing, should be left to do its job, so that it can fully play its role as media regulator and guarantor of media ethics.”A total of seven journalists have been arrested since October and two newspapers have been searched by the police.The latest journalist to be detained on a seditious libel charge is Theophilus Gbenda, the producer of a programme on Culture Radio, who was arrested on 11 February in connection with a broadcast in which a guest made comments about a land case that irritated Vice-President Sam Sumana.Gbenda was summoned by the IMC but before he had time to respond to the summons, the police arrested him. He appeared in court yesterday but the judge did not take any decision on the charges and no date has been set for a trial.The CID arrested Premier Media managing director Dr. Julious Spencer and editor Alusine Sesay on 15 January on a complaint by information minister Alpha Kanu accusing them of defaming the government. While they spent the day in police custody, the CID went to Premier Media’s office and confiscated a great deal of multimedia equipment.Jonathan Leigh, the managing editor of the Independent Observer newspaper, and Bai Bai Sesay, its editor, were summoned for questioning by the CID on seditious libel charges on 14 January, also as result of a complaint by the information minister.This was three days after the police raided the Independent Observer, seized computer equipment material, and arrested one of its journalists, N’Fa Allie Turay, releasing him after several hours of interrogation.Leigh and Sesay were already arrested on 18 October over an article about the president. Charged with 26 counts of seditious libel, they were finally freed on 4 November on bail of 500 million Leones (85,000 euros). The trial was to have started on 18 November but has been postponed eight times without any decision being taken on the substance of the case. The next hearing is set for 19 February.Dr. David Tam-Baryoh, a human rights activist and host of the radio programme “Monologue,” was arrested and held for several hours on 2 January in connection with the alleged defamation of transport and aviation minister Balogun Logus Koroma, who is normally regarded as friendly to the media.Sierra Leone is ranked 72nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 press freedom index, which Reporters Without Borders published on 12 February. This is 10 places lower than its ranking in the 2013 index. Newslast_img read more

State’s Withdrawal Of Consent Will Not Impact Power To Investigate In ‘Railway Areas’ : CBI Tells Supreme Court

Further, reliance has been placed on the ratio of the Supreme Court in the case Ram Kishan Fauji v. State of Haryana by the Petitioners which, as per the CBI, will not apply squarely onto the facts and circumstances of the present case. “….it was held in view of the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case, that no appeal under the Letters Patent Appeal shall lie to the Division Bench of the High Court from the order passed by the Single-Judge of the High Court exercising original criminal jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution…” Rejecting the contention that the proceedings before the Division Bench would be deemed infructuous, the Affidavit submits that the Letter Patent of Lahore is completely analogous to the Letters Patent for Calcutta High Court, and the corresponding clause 25 of the Letters Patent of Calcutta High Court has no application in the present case. The Supreme Court bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud had earlier observed that it will examine the issue if the Division Bench had jurisdiction to consider the appeal against the Single Bench decision as per the Letters Patent rules. Additionally, Calcutta High Court is governed procedurally by separate rules for petitions under Article 226 which do not distinguish amongst Civil and Criminal Writs. “It is submitted that as per the said Rules, there exists no distinction in the petitions filed under Article 226 [whether on the civil side or the criminal side] and the rules mandate that all petitions be registered and allocated the roster under the head of “Original Side”.” Secondly, the Affidavit submits that a conjoint reading of Sections 5 and 6 of the DSPE Act provides that no permission of the State Government is required for the registration of case carrying out an investigation in the Railway Area. “It is pertinent that once the notification has been issued under Section 5(1) of the DSPE Act, including the State of West Bengal therein, the Railway Area which is part of the state is automatically included therein. If the same is read along with Section 6 of the DSPE Act, even if the concerned State has withdrawn the consent for investigation of the cases in terms of the DSPE Act, the same cannot be withdrawn with reference to Railway Areas”. The Affidavit then goes on to submit that the CBI did not require prior consent from the State in the instant case. “It is submitted that the said withdrawal [of consent] has no bearing on the power of the CBI to register FIRs in relation to offences in ‘railway areas’ and take consequential steps in pursuance to such ‘investigation’. It is submitted that the Respondent was well within the powers conferred to it, while initiating and continuing to conduct the instant investigation”. Conveying that in respect of offences committed in Railway Areas, the DSPE Act unequivocally grants the power to CBI to investigate whether or not the State Government accords its consent. The Affidavit then refers to Sections 4, 5 and 6 of the DSPE Act, as well as Entries 8, 22 and 80 in List I of Schedule VII of the Constitution, to delineate how exclusive power is conferred. Further, as the individuals being investigated are Central Government employees, it is averred that the Centre does not need prior consent to investigate its own employees, irrespective of the fact whether the concerned employee is within the territorial jurisdiction of the CBI to investigate or not. The Affidavit concludes on the note that being the foremost investigating police agency in India, CBI stands apart from the rest of the investigating agencies across the Country. Therefore, to ensure optimum transparency and efficiency, the CBI should be allowed to investigate in such matters. Background The case pertains to illegal mining and transportation of coal through Railways in connivance with officers of the Eastern Coalfield Limited, Railways, C.I.S.F. and some other private persons including the writ petitioner (Anup Majee). A FIR was registered in the matter by CBI for offences of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust by public servants and criminal misconduct by public servants by dishonestly or fraudulently misappropriating the property entrusted to them or any property under their control as public servants or allowing other persons to do so. The Petitioner had impugned the FIR before a Single Bench of the Calcutta High Court which held that CBI’s power to investigate beyond ‘Railway Areas’ was subject to the consent of the State. In an appeal preferred by CBI, a Division Bench of the High Court stayed the Single Judge’s order and allowed CBI to investigate the case without any hindrance. It observed, “Proper investigation cannot be carried out if the investigation in such cases is divided into parts, drawing lines on territories once the premier central agency is in the process of investigation. In case during the pendency of the present appeals, the investigation being carried out by the CBI is hampered, the process of investigation at this stage will certainly be prejudiced, which will not be in the interest of justice as any delay in the process may be fatal…”Next Storylast_img read more

United Biscuits downsizes Glasgow staff

first_imgUnited Biscuits (UB) plans to cut around 85 jobs at its McVitie’s factory in Tollcross, Glasgow, which manufactures biscuits such as Go Ahead and Hobnobs.The proposed reduction in staff forms part of plans to invest in new products and production capability at the site, which employs around 700 people.“Under these proposals, this investment will safeguard the future of the site and the roles of the vast majority of employees. However, changes to head-count needs on different shifts and some working practices may result in some redundancies.New jobs are also being proposed, so despite 93 roles being affected, the proposed net reduction in roles will be in the region of 85,” said UB in a statement.The company has entered into a consultation on the proposals with union representatives.>>United Biscuits hitting zero waste targetslast_img read more
