Following the earthquakes of September 2017, different architectural offices, designers and collaborators, both national and international, joined ReConstruir México, a project supported by PienZa Sostenible, which emerged with the aim of joining forces to achieve a conscious and sustainable reconstruction. Seventeen months after the tragedy, PienZa Sostenible has managed more than 150 reconstruction projects in 6 states thanks to the support of different donors, agencies and volunteers, with the aim of improving the quality of life of people in communities that not only suffered serious effects on their heritage, but also present serious cases of vulnerability and social deprivation.Save this picture!© Fernanda OlivaresSave this picture!Save this picture!© Pablo AstorgaSince August 2017 until today, a total of 16 homes have been delivered in Ocuilan, State of Mexico. The project promoted by #LoveArmyMéxico, and supported by Fundación Origen, ¡Échale! to your House, Fuerza México Trust and PienZa Sostenible, comprises 50 single-family homes designed by more than 40 architecture offices, as well as a Community Center, by T_O Arquitectura.We designed a house for the Guzmán family in the rural town of Ocuilán de Arteaga–through a request by Fundación PienZa Sostenible and Love Army México. The family land–of 4,305 ft2–where the house used to be is divided into five equal parts: one per sibling. In their 807 ft2 plot, the Guzmans originally had a precarious wood construction of approximately 16 x 13 feet, covered in metal sheets, without any kind of isolation, and with an attached latrine; inside, it had soil floors. The house was inhabited by Karina, her husband Miguel Ángel, and their daughters: Annette and Alix.Save this picture!© Pablo AstorgaWe talked with the family about the layout for their new home; we wanted to know what they needed and what would work for them. They requested two rooms, a small living room, and a wood-burning stove outside, preferably roofed. If we had designed a one-story house–i.e., a 527 ft2 building in a land of 807 ft2–the family would have been left without open areas. Therefore, we decided to build a two-story house, reducing the floor plan to 263 ft2 and leaving an area for planting trees. Furthermore, this allowed us to create a terrace on the third floor–an intimate space for the family, where they can see the town, the neighboring fields, and the surrounding volcanoes.Save this picture!© Fernanda OlivaresTratamos de entender la manera especiífica de vivir de la familia, nos solicitaron dos cuartos, una pequeña estancia y una cocina de leña en el exterior cubierta.Our conversations leaded to the relevance of outdoor areas: Karina cooks with firewood outside, while the girls play in the field. This is the reason why we contemplated the kitchen as the central axis of the house, the place from where you can see everything. This way, while Karina is cooking, she can have a view of the field and see her daughters playing, as well as interact with her family and neighbors.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe toilet, previously attached to the house, was shared by all of the families. We sought to respect this common use, so the toilet was built as an independent facility and is now a full bathroom and a more private space.We used concrete for the foundation and polished cement for the floors. Vertical reinforcements were installed in the walls–reinforced concrete slabs. Compressed earth blocks, created in situ, were used for every wall and pinewood was used for the doors and windows. This is how we were able to entirely adapt the design to the needs and uses of the Guzman family and to build a new and more resistant home for them, providing better space conditions.Save this picture!© Fernanda OlivaresProject gallerySee allShow less”My Journey is Starting Now”: Shohei Shigematsu of OMA New YorkArticlesStefano Boeri Architetti Creates a Vertical Forest for Tirana 2030 Master PlanArchitecture News Share Year: center_img Mexico “COPY” Francisco Pardo Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913308/ocuilan-house-francisco-pardo-arquitecto Clipboard CopyHouses•Ocuilan de Arteaga, Mexico Photographs:  Jaime Navarro, Pablo Astorga, Fernanda Olivares ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913308/ocuilan-house-francisco-pardo-arquitecto Clipboard Karina House / Francisco Pardo ArquitectoSave this projectSaveKarina House / Francisco Pardo Arquitecto CopyAbout this officeFrancisco Pardo ArquitectoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOcuilan de ArteagaOn InstagramMexicoPublished on March 18, 2019Cite: “Karina House / Francisco Pardo Arquitecto” [Casa Karina / Francisco Pardo Arquitecto] 18 Mar 2019.

It provides £1,500 available for each team that a club creates, to cover costs such as FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; and also football kit and equipment through a bespoke voucher.The application window for Grow the Game applications is now open and closes on Thursday 29 March. Clubs seeking more information on the programme should contact their local County FA or visit the Football Foundation website.Brandon Coleman, England Blind footballer, said:“By recognising areas of the game where playing opportunities are really limited, and focusing on developing them by providing funds that could make all the difference, Grow the Game plays a big part in making sure that football in England is open and accessible for all.”In addition, male teams of under-17s and upwards that already exist will soon be able to apply for support from The FA’s new retention-focused scheme, called Retain the Game, which will offer £1m to successful applicants and launches in April.

Back online!

first_imgNews Follow the news on Syria February 3, 2021 Find out more Syria has been back online since December 1st at about 14:30 GMT. Some Internet users have been using VPNs and the TOR network. Psiphon has confirmed it is being used by people inside Syria.However, Internet seems not to be accessible everywhere in the country yet.———————–Friday, November 30Devastating blow to news coverage in SyriaRead in Arabic (بالعربية)Internet, landline phone, mobile phone and 3G connections have all been down since 10:30 GMT yesterday throughout Syria.Reporting news and information was already extremely difficult in Syria and now the Internet’s disconnection has completed the news blackout imposed by the regime.“As thousands of Syrians use the Internet to post their accounts of the ongoing conflict on YouTube and social networks, this generalized Internet disconnection has dealt a devastating blow to the circulation of information in Syria and to coverage of the conflict and the repression,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.Reporters Without Borders calls on the Syrian authorities to do everything possible to restore telecommunications networks and to end the news blackout.Syria’s telecommunications networks have often been subject to cuts since the start of the conflict. Until now, they were limited to individual regions and network types (Internet or telephone). This cut is unprecedented as it has hit the entire country and is affecting fixed-line phones, mobile phones and the Internet.Currently, the only way to communicate in Syria is either using satellite uplinks, which may expose the user to danger, as they are easily located, or using the telecommunications networks of neighbouring countries (Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon) in the border regions.Government officials in Damascus have blamed the problem on a “terrorist attack” and say the telecommunications networks will be restored “very soon.” However, because of the redundancy intrinsic to Internet networks, a technical problem would not suffice to bring down the Internet throughout a country. Only a government that controls the national infrastructure would be in a position to isolate the entire country from the Internet and phone networks at the same time.Whatever the cause, Syria is now cut off from the rest of the world.

No progress in last May’s shooting attack on Montenegrin crime reporter

first_img Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” RSF reminds Montenegro’s government that it undertook to shed all possible light on the attack, in which a gunman shot Lakic in the leg outside her home in Podgorica in May, and that it has a duty to guarantee her safety.Lakic and the daily newspaper she works for, Vijesti, are nowadays often denigrated in pro-government media, which go so far as to question the reality of the attack on Lakic and to suggest that Vijesti and she staged it in order to draw attention.A specialist in covering crime and corruption, Lakic was the target of attack in 2012, shortly after starting to cover tobacco trafficking in Montenegro, which is allegedly controlled by businessmen with government ties.The shooting attack in May caused an outcry at the time and elicited the promise of a “swift and effective” investigation from Prime Minister Dusko Markovic. But the investigation has ground to a halt and no arrests have been made.“The Montenegrin government has a duty to do everything possible to facilitate the thorough investigation promised by the prime minister seven months ago and to guarantee Olivera Lakic’s safety,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s European Union and Balkans desk. “The lack of action by the police fuels the unacceptable insinuations, undermines the reputation of Lakic and her work, and constitutes an additional threat to the life of this courageous journalist, who provides public interest reporting.”RSF’s latest report, entitled “Journalists: the bête noire of organized crime,” shines a light on the threats and reprisals to which journalists are subjected whenever they start taking too much interest in organized crime.All of the attacks on journalists in the past two years have gone unpunished in Montenegro, which is ranked 103rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Russia retaliates after RT made to register as “foreign agent” in US

first_img June 8, 2021 Find out more December 5, 2017 – Updated on December 11, 2017 Russia retaliates after RT made to register as “foreign agent” in US Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia News Organisation News Update: The “foreign agents” media bill was adopted by the upper house of the Russian parliament on 22 November and was signed into law by President Vladimir Putin three days later.On 5 December, Voice of America, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and seven affiliated media outlets – five regional radio stations, Current Time TV and a fact-checking service – were declared by the justice ministry to be “foreign agents.”RSF reiterates its condemnation of this law, which is likely to result in further restriction of the Russian public’s access to information at a time of unprecedented pressure on Russian media outlets.15.11.2017 – Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is alarmed by Russia’s quid-pro-quo response to the US government’s decision to make the Kremlin-funded TV channel RT register as a “foreign agent” in order to continue broadcasting in the United States.Читать по-русски / Read in RussianJust two days after RT had to register as a “foreign agent” in Washington, the Duma (the Russian parliament’s lower house) yesterday hastily passed a law allowing the Russian authorities to declare any foreign media outlet to be a “foreign agent.”The only criteria specified are foreign funding or being registered in another country. This will give the authorities enormous leeway when interpreting the law, which now only needs to be rubber-stamped by the upper house and signed by President Vladimir Putin in order to take effect.“The law’s extremely vague provisions open the way to selective, arbitrary and highly political application and, at a time of unprecedented pressure on the media, are liable to make it even harder for Russian citizens to get access to freely reported news,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“We condemn this eye-for-an-eye response, as media freedom will be its only victim. It is highly regrettable that the US authorities started this. Combatting propaganda is one of our era’s imperatives but it is not the job of governments to define what is legitimate journalism.”Under the law adopted yesterday, the draconian provisions that have applied to foreign-funded NGOs since 2012 will be extended to foreign media, which will have to put the ignominious “foreign agent” label on everything they publish or broadcast, and will have to provide a detailed accounting of their financial situation.NGOs that do not comply with the 2012 legislation are exposed to astronomic fines that have forced dozens to close. Used as a heavy weapon against civil society, its victims have included Russia’s leading media-support NGOs.Nonetheless, the provisions that are about to be applied to foreign media outlets are even vaguer. Unlike those that apply to NGOs, they will not be conditioned on any “political activity” criteria.According to legislators, the justice ministry will decide on a case-by-case basis how the law is applied. At this stage, one can only speculate as to its first targets, which could include such leading public broadcasters as Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the BBC and Deutsche Welle. Russian exile media may also be targeted.In Washington, it was T&R Productions LLC, the company that produces RT’s programming in the United States, that filed an application on 13 November to be added to the US justice department’s register of foreign agents.Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Trusts forced into shifts U-turn

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Trusts forced into shifts U-turnOn 25 Jan 2000 in Personnel Today Use of agency nurses in the NHS has led to lower efficiency after changes toshift patterns.The claims come from personnel directors and Unison as the Governmentannounced pay rises to help recruitment and retention.Trusts are now reverting to traditional shift patterns and morefamily-friendly policies. John Adsett, head of personnel at Basildon and Thurrock General HospitalsTrust, said there had been too much emphasis on the use of nurses supplied byagencies.He said, “At one time we were all being preached at that you have tohave a core workforce and a peripheral workforce.”It was a fashionable theory for a while. It was at a time when we weretold that what was good for industry was good for the NHS.”He added, “Part of the problem was that you had staff to whom theorganisation was not particularly loyal because we only asked them in whenthere was a crisis. Consequently you do not get the loyalty.”There are a lot of trusts that have had a long, hard look at thingslike working patterns and are trying to be as flexible as possible now.”Unison’s head of nursing Karen Jennings said many nurses left for agenciesbecause they were forced to work a full range of shifts under the internalrotation system introduced in 1995-6. They found agencies offered them moreflexibility.”For example many had previously chosen to work night shifts only,because it suited them. But with internal rotation everybody had to work alltypes of shifts.”Last week’s pay rises for nursing staff range from 3.4 per cent for anursing assistant to 7.8 per cent for an experienced staff nurse.In 1995-6, health regions in England spent £163m on agency staff. The figurerose to £191m in 1996-7 and £216m in 1997-8.Jennings added, “Agencies are part of nursing now, so if hospitals wantnurses back, it is all about offering good career development, understandingtheir domestic arrangements and not being dogmatic about internalrotation.”By Helen Rowe Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Labour’s proposed mansion tax under attack again

first_imgEd Balls, the Shadow Chancellor, has been forced to defend Labour’s plans for a mansion tax on homes worth more than £2 million after it was described as “crude” by Lord Mandelson (left) who insisted last week that he did not like the idea of “clobbering people” with the levy.In offering his thoughts on the planned mansion tax, Lord Mandelson told the BBC’s Newsnight that, “I think it’s crude, I think it’s short-termist.”He went on to declare his support for the Liberal Democrat idea of adding new higher council tax bands.The Lib Dems, who originally called for a mansion tax on £1 million-plus homes prior to the 2010 General Election, have since refined their plans and are now calling for a review of the council tax bands in place since the early 1990s, with new bands above £2 million introduced.However, Shadow chancellor Ed Balls (left) has defended Labour’s planned mansion tax and insisted that a levy on properties worth £2 million-plus, which his party insists will be spent on the NHS, would be introduced in a “careful, consulted way.”He told BBC Radio 4’s The World at One: “I promise you that it [a mansion tax] won’t be crude. I do not want to clobber anyone.”“The important thing is that Peter supports a tax on high-value properties,” Balls added. “He wants a banded system. I have said we are going to have a banded system.”Meanwhile, Labour Peer, fertility doctor Professor Robert Winston, has described Labour’s plans for a mansion tax as like something out of Soviet Russia.He said the policy was unfair because it would not affect people in similar-sized properties in other cities in the UK and could result in homeowners being forced to move out – a prospect he compared to the Marxism inflicted on Russia after the revolution.“My terraced house in London is probably just close to that band,” he said in a radio interview. “If I had the same identical house on the outskirts of Birmingham, it would be half that amount and I would never pay this kind of tax. That doesn’t seem right to me.”Knight Frank analysis shows 2.5 per cent of London homes would be affected by a proposed ‘mansion tax’ on properties worth more than £2 million.To assess how this impact on London equates to the rest of the UK, Knight Frank analysed ten other markets to determine the top 2.5 per cent by value and the equivalent ‘mansion tax’ entry point in each.For example, the top 2.5 per cent of the West Midlands property market represents homes worth more than £472,216 (see table below for full results).“The data puts the London housing market and the disproportionate impact of a mansion tax into a national context,” said Tom Bill, head of London residential research at Knight Frank.“House prices have grown more in London than other regions in recent years but this reflects high demand and constrained supply more than wage growth or any greater capacity of London homeowners to pay tax,” he added. “Furthermore, the data underlines the mismatch between the term ‘mansion’ and reality of property markets across the UK.”Knight Frank analysis reveals 38 per cent of all £2 million-plus properties in Greater London are flats while only 14 per cent are detached properties. Terraced houses are the second largest group at 36 per cent while semi-detached properties make up the remaining 12 per cent.London contributed 42 per cent of all stamp duty revenue in England and Wales in the 2013/14 tax year, up from 41 per cent in the previous year.Region: Equivalent ‘mansion tax’ entry pointLondon: £2,000,000South East: £925,440East of England: £723,393South West: £606,622West Midlands: £472,216East Midlands: £425,085North West: £415,065Yorkshire and The Humbar: £406,962Scotland: £406,139Wales: £376,487North East: £343,558 January 27, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
