The foundations and terraces define the position of the pieces, recognizing this geometry as the imprint of the preexistence that defines the general score of order in the territory.Save this picture!© Bruno GilibertoThe house, like a palimpsest, carries the imprint of the writing that preceded it so as to trace a new order without ignoring it. Its altitude, its perspectives, its bays and walls are consequently the result of a binomial governed by legacy.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldOn this sediment, the house is silent, simple, in the understanding that any contraption discredits the binominal reading of the ground and layout, fusing the new and old in a single body.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldThe basement of the house, which imports foundations and horizontal platforms from the previous dwelling, exposes the ground as a stony body, a podium, a leveraged base that nests a set of bodies of rough wood on its surface, all intersected and pierced by gaps that allow the interior to frame views over the valley, nourishing the spaces with natural light.Save this picture!SectionsThe silence of its forms is used to amplify details, materials and encounters that fill the work with a particular vision on design. Doors, windows, furniture, skies, pavements, tiers, guardrails, they all form a catalog of clearly defined pieces, articulating a contrast between its silent order and the complexity of its parts.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldLike a Siamese body, Zupe house ties preexistence by understanding it as a geographic ally, as a ground with an altitude, and a height with a horizon.

Liberia : RSF calls for probe into Monrovia reporter’s murder

first_img June 12, 2020 Find out more LiberiaAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Violence Reports News Brown’s body was found in the early hours of 16 April on a street in a suburb of Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, where he had been thrown from a car after being stabbed twice, police said. Brown worked for Super FM, a commercial radio and TV station. Charles Coffey, the head of the Press Union of Liberia, told RSF he was “shocked over the vicious killing” and concerned that it had “increased the level of fear” and “self-censorship” among Liberia’s journalists. “We ask the Liberian authorities to conduct a full and thorough investigation into the circumstances of Tyron Brown’s murder and to not rule out the possibility that it was linked to his work as a journalist,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “His murder has come in a climate of growing hostility towards journalists in recent months despite repeated promises by Liberia’s new president, George Weah, to defend press freedom.” The Press Union of Liberia addressed an open letter to the UN secretary-general on 11 April voicing alarm at the “pace at which official intolerance for independent journalism and dissent is escalating in Liberia.” Two days before, the entire staff of the Monrovia-based daily, FrontPage Africa, were arrested and questioned by court officials in connection with a story about ruling party associates. BBC reporter Jonathan Paye-Layleh has fled the country fearing reprisals from President Weah’s supporters after Weah accused him, during a press conference in March, of questioning the sincerity of Weah’s defence of human rights during Liberia’s civil war. Journalists have also been attacked by Monrovia’s mayor, who described himself last month as “careless about the media criticisms of this government.” Liberia is ranked 94th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

University of Limerick host Enterprise Excellence Conference

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The main building at the University of LimerickOn Friday the 27th of April, UL hosted the second in a series of Enterprise Excellence Conferences. Almost 150 business and industry representatives from the region attended the event in the Kemmy Business School, UL to hear a number or organisations present the structures and strategies they use in the development of their CI culture.Some of the organisations presenting were just starting, some had mature CI initiatives but all had the same message. In order to improve you need a strategy and a structure to achieve excellence.Unlike standard conferences of this nature that outline organisation improvement initiatives, the JEEC2 conference outlined applications from on the ground practitioners. By highlighting the strategies and structures for excellence the speakers introduced real life examples of the tools in use, the strengths and weakness and more importantly the results achieved from these applications.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Stryker, SES, Cook Medical, Abbott Diagnostics, Johnson & Johnson Vision were some of theorganisations that shared their applications on the day. A self- assessment A3 was also available to attendees to help organisations prepare for excellence.The conference was facilitated by Dr Sean Moore, Senior Lecturer, Lean & Six Sigma, University of Limerick who commented “Many organisations who engage in continuous improvement (CI) programs think they are about “training our people” in CI methodologies. In fact training people without putting in place the supporting structures is the equivalent of scattering seeds on concrete and expecting a bountiful crop. In order to flourish seeds need time, care and a receptive nourishing soil. Similarly, for organisations to achieve Enterprise Excellence individuals have similar requirements. Once a CI methodology is taught it needs time to embed, it needs space to accomplish its aims and it needs support from the leaders and senior leaders in the organisation. Only when this “culture” or improvement is in existence, will it be possible for individuals to reap the harvest of opportunities for improvement”As part of this Series A Journey to Enterprise Excellence Research Conference is scheduled forSeptember 6th 2018More about education here.

Girl injured in apparent shark attack at Myrtle Beach

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.) — A girl swimming at a popular resort town in South Carolina was injured in what was an apparent shark attack on Monday.Cristy Torres, who was at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, on Monday celebrating her husband’s birthday, filmed video of the girl being treated for a bite wound on her leg. The video, shared on Torres’ Facebook page had been viewed over 1.6 million times early Wednesday.Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue wasn’t able to confirm whether it was a shark attack, but said the girl was transported to the hospital for a “marine-life incident” at around 2:55 p.m. on Monday. Myrtle Beach is a popular tourist destination, but not unfamiliar with shark sightings. A blacktip reef shark was filmed swimming on June 5 in the same location where the girl was apparently bitten on Monday. The video was shared with Durham, North Carolina, ABC affiliate WTVD by Nicki Welch-Hudson.“I’m hoping that tourists seeing the video will respect our oceans a little more,” Welch-Hudson said. “I heard lots of people on the beach attempting to say the shark wasn’t dangerous, one man even said he would jump in and ‘punch the shark,’ that angered me of course.”The water was cleared by lifeguards during that incident.Blacktip sharks, bull sharks and tiger sharks are all common to the South Carolina coast, according to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, and can all pose a threat to humans in coastal areas.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Serial cat killer? Mutilated cat believed to be 13th in string of grisly cat murders in Washington state

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(SEATTLE) — A serial cat killer may be on the loose, Washington state law enforcement officials are saying after discovering a 13th cat Friday in a string of brutal mutilated cat murders.A few days after the number of mutilated cats reached a dozen, officials now say a 13th cat has been found. The 13th killed and mutilated cat was found in Lacey, Washington, in Thurston County, the same location as the previous 12, Lt. Tim Rudolff with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office told Seattle ABC affiliate KOMO.“She would go on walks with me,” owner Paul Braget, who found the kitten as a stray and raised her to adulthood, told KOMO. “She was a good cat.”Braget believes his cat was taken sometime late Thursday or early Wednesday when his neighbor’s dog began barking at something, or someone, outside. The 12th cat was found in a field on Pacific Avenue SE, near the popular Chehalis Western Trail in Olympia, according to KOMO.Investigators believe that all the cases are connected because of how the cats were mutilated, KOMO reported. As ABC News previously reported, the cats were found cut open with their spines removed, according to Erika Johnson, an animal cruelty services investigator for Thurston County Animal Services. They were apparently cut open with a scalpel, she added. “This person is a sick, callous disgusting psychopath,” Paul DeTray, who found the 12th cat, told KOMO. “To say the least, [it’s] a little gut-wrenching to see somebody’s beloved pet torn apart like that.”DeTray said he discovered the cat after a swarm of flies and bees caught his attention, and he went to check out why they were gathered in one place.“When it actually happens and you find it, that’s a completely different story. It really hits home,” DeTray said of finding the cat. Earlier this month, a deaf tabby cat named Harley was found by its owner’s neighbor in West Olympia, not far from where another cat was found just a week earlier.“The cats are usually left in public places after they are killed,” non-profit organization Pasado’s Safe Haven said in a statement in early August. “Investigators believe these cases are linked due to similar mutilations done to the cats’ bodies.”Pasado’s Safe Haven is offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

CASH hits out at salt in free-from bakery

first_imgConsensus on Salt and Health (CASH) has hit out at supermarket free-from products, which it claims contain a much higher salt content than their standard alternatives.Research carried out by CASH analysed the contents of 71 supermarket own-label products in ‘free-from’ ranges (gluten, wheat or dairy-free), and compared them to the retailer’s standard version.However, only just over half (56.3%) of the free-from products contained more salt, and 26.7% contained less.Topping CASH’s saltiest free-from list was Sainsbury’s Free From Jaffa Cakes which contained six times a much salt in the free-from range – 0.67g of salt per 100g, compared to 0.1g of salt per 100g in standard Sainsbury’s Jaffa Cakes.Other products on the list were Morrisons free from Chocolate Chip Cookies, which contained 1.5g of salt per 100g, compared to 0.5g per 100g in the standard version, and Asda Free From Double Chocolate Muffins which contain 1g of salt per 100g, compared to 0.3g per 100g in the standard version.“In general, it has been the supermarket own-label products that have led the way in salt reduction, but it seems that own-label products for people with existing health problems have not been a top priority for the retailers,” commented Graham MacGregor, chairman of CASH and professor of cardiovascular medicine.A spokesperson for Sainsbury’s was quoted in The Daily Telegraph as saying the supermarket was actively working on reducing the salt levels in its free-from range.last_img read more

Trump rejects Dems’ request to testify at impeachment trial

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump is rejecting a request by House Democrats to testify under oath for his Senate impeachment trial. Democrats are challenging the former president to explain why he and his lawyers have disputed key factual allegations related to their charge that he incited a violent mob to storm the Capitol. Trump adviser Jason Miller responded Thursday that “the president will not testify in an unconstitutional proceeding.” Trump’s lawyers dismissed the request as a “public relations stunt.” The request from House impeachment managers doesn’t require Trump to appear, but it does warn that any refusal to testify could be used at trial to support arguments for a conviction.last_img
