The proposal of the buildings and the open spaces has been structure from the consideration that the environment where the project is developed has got several point of view and confrontation with the existing city.We can resume in three points this complexity:· The relation with the “high” city which gives a leadership to the roofs and the different treatment of the pavements and the levels of the open spaces make up a “horizontal facade” which maintains the same strength and urban intention as the real facades. Green water-tank roofs are proposed with this objective.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pich-Aguilera ArchitectsRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0Enclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement Panels· The relation with the St. Ignasi street as a principal access in the future city; the projects sets an typological organization and a rhythm in the façade with a constant alignment for generating a set that marks a clear urban boundary.· The relationship with Montserrat street, where the buildings are planned to interpret the existing city with its irregularities and minimum parcel.The proposed arrangement tries to generate open spaces for pedestrians but at the same time it looks for spaces of relation between the different buildings. All the halls to the apartments are facing the Montserrat street becoming a public space of connection between the houses.Save this picture!First Floor PlanENVIRONMENTAL Sustainability AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION parametersWATERIn the matter of water saving we propose constructive systems and facilities that make an efficient use of the consumption and use of water, as well as the use of savings mechanisms proposed:- Ecological green water tank roof: allows the provision of a green roof without irrigation and minimal maintenance. The landscaped area in an urban context , plus a visual and playful effect , is mainly a source of air purification ( transforming CO2 pollution in O2). The study of the rainfall of the place makes us to dispense of other uses of water stored in no more than water-tank roof garden . In the case of very heavy rainfall a reservoir stores the water drained, which is afterwards pumped to the roof when needed.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pich-Aguilera Architects- Reuse of gray water. Studio water flows and storage tanks and maintenance needs.- Device regulator water pressure at the entrance of the building.- Saving systems for toilets.- Systems saving faucets and appliances, opening a rebound , aerators and flow restrictors ( maximum flow of 12 liters per minute)ENERGYMainly focused on building systems project in the bioclimatic building performance as well as the detailed study of the isolates, avoiding thermal bridges.- Thermal insulation is increased in all them stay by 20 % compared to that required by regulation 87 NRE -AT. Insulation thickness is increased from 5 to 8cm (can exceed 6% of global demand of a standard building). Insulation is available in slabs located on unheated places (can exceed an additional 20 % of global demand). Improvement in quality of carpentry, avoiding thermal bridge with an estimated 4% savings. All are double glazed joinery.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pich-Aguilera Architects- A coefficient minor or equal to 3.30 W/m2 thermal transmittance K is studied for at all openings- The roof improves the thermal insulation with respect to a traditional inverted cover. With the added advantage of the thermal inertia of the water surface. Alternatives that incorporate elements of thermal inertia mean an additional saving of 2% and improve the cooling demand which can be reduced by 50 %.- The facades of the project contemplated a cluster of holes and an array of blades, which generate a flow mattress or climate provide perfect cross ventilation of all types and control them from radiation.- The project, the orientations and patios are studied to ensure that all typologies have cross ventilation, solar chimneys are integrated in places were the demanded density does not allow it.Save this picture!Courtesy of Pich-Aguilera Architects- Industrialized concrete panels allow: Higher quality facades and tightness. A great opportunity to colors and textures. Continuous insulation across the front. A high speed assembly and manufacturing, thereby saving resources and energy. Qualitatively improve safety in work.- Active solar systems are placed. Solar collectors on deck for both domestic hot water and to support some indoor heating.- The set of proposed solutions allow them;• Being able to guarantee summer temperatures and moisture sensitive inside terms of comfort without any need for artificial installation of air conditioning equipment.• In winter you can achieve standards of comfort and performance at an estimated savings of 40% in respect to a conventional building (considering all the passive and active installations proposals).Save this picture!Courtesy of Pich-Aguilera ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessTwenty Years Later, What Rural Studio Continues to Teach Us About Good DesignArticlesGarcias House / Warm ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Avinguda de les Bases de Manresa, 1, 08242 Manresa, Barcelona, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Declaración de Partido Mundo Obrero: Solidaridad de Workers World con la marcha de El Paso: ¡ABOLIR LA SUPREMACÍA BLANCA! ¡ABOLIR ICE!

first_imgEl 3 de agosto de 2019, un individuo intentó aplastar el espíritu de millones. Intentó, a través de la malicia y la violencia, hacer retroceder a aquellos que solo buscan refugio y seguridad. Pero su intento ha fallado. El tirador de El Paso, el último de una larga línea de asesinos supremacistas blancos, utilizó las tácticas del terrorismo en un intento inútil por detener la migración de personas latinxs y preservar su visión de un etnoestado blanco.Pero la fuerza impulsora de la migración es fuerte, y la voluntad de sobrevivir es aún más fuerte. El 7 de septiembre, la Red Fronteriza para los Derechos Humanos, RAICES Texas, la Red Nacional Organizadora de Jornaleros y sus aliados se reunirán en El Paso para marchar en la Acción Nacional contra la Supremacía Blanca.El Partido Mundo Obrero orgullosamente marchará hombro con hombro en solidaridad con esta acción y más allá. Sabemos que el único antídoto contra la plaga de la supremacía blanca es un compromiso inquebrantable con el antirracismo.También entendemos que la violencia supremacista blanca va más allá de la pesadilla de El Paso. Sabemos que el dominio de la supremacía blanca se extiende más allá de los tiradores solitarios, con sus tentáculos que alcanzan las filas de las agencias estatales de aplicación de la ley en los Estados Unidos y el mundo. Sabemos que dejar que los/las niños/as mueran en jaulas es un acto de terror tan grande como matarlos a tiros en un centro comercial. Y sabemos que no puede haber justicia en un mundo donde el capital cruza las fronteras libremente, mientras que los seres humanos, especialmente los que pertenecen a la clase trabajadora global, no pueden hacerlo libremente. Así que nos unimos con una sola voz para decir: “¡Abolir ICE, abolir la policía, terminar con encarcelamientos masivos, cerrar los campamentos, abrir las fronteras, El Paso Firme!” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ethiopian leader urged to consolidate press freedom’s progress

first_img News Help by sharing this information May 18, 2021 Find out more News May 21, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditation News RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia Organisation Abiy Ahmed, Ethiopian Prime Minister at the World Press Freedom Prize Awards ceremony in Addis Ababa, May 2, 2019. EDUARDO SOTERAS / AFP EthiopiaAfrica Freedom of expression Follow the news on Ethiopiacenter_img Christophe DeloireSecretary-General Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home to go further Dear Prime Minister,For the first time in more than ten years, your country no longer has a single journalist in prison. Since you became prime minister in April 2018, your government has authorized hundreds of newspapers, news websites and TV stations that were banned under the previous regime. After years of repression in which they constantly risked imprisonment or had to flee abroad, journalists can now freely play their role as a counter-power. This rapid and spectacular progress enabled Ethiopia to jump 40 places in the 2019 World Press Freedom Index, compiled by Reporters Without Borders (RSF). This is the biggest rise by any country in the world since the Index was launched in 2002.This progress was unanimously hailed at the event that UNESCO organized in Addis Ababa on 3 May to mark World Press Freedom Day. As you said in your address on this occasion, Ethiopia is now at a “pivotal” moment and will only be able to realize its true democratic potential if “those who are tasked with the duty to inform are aware of the responsibilities that come with such freedom.” It is indeed essential to help the media to professionalize, so that they can fulfil their independent watchdog role without fuelling the tension and conflicts in which your country is embroiled. The journalists RSF met during its recent visit to Ethiopia are fully aware of these challenges. Their plan to create a representative union and their desire to eventually establish an inclusive and professional self-regulatory body testify to their determination to combine freedom with responsibility.While the freedom to criticize and media pluralism are now realities, much needs to be done so that quality journalism can flourish. Since you became prime minister, abusive prosecutions of journalists, based above all on the 2009 terrorism law, have ceased but the promised and indispensable overhaul of the draconian and repressive media laws has yet to materialize. RSF is also concerned about a bill designed to criminalize fake news and hate speech, which could be diverted from its original goal and could be used to prosecute journalists.Under the old regime, the threats to reporting freedom were easily identifiable. They came mainly from the authorities. The red lines and risks were well known. Nowadays, the dangers are more diffuse. Two Mereja TV journalists were attacked by unidentified persons in the Oromia region on 23 February, just moments after being briefly detained by the local police in Legetafo after questioning newly displaced persons whose homes had been destroyed. Ethnic conflicts are still hard to cover, and many journalists told RSF that their media outlets did not dare send them to report on these stories, above all for security reasons.Finally, the disbanding of the Government Communication Affairs Office (GCAO), which centralized media requests, has unfortunately not been accompanied by any improvement in access to state-held information. The two press conferences you have given have not sufficed to satisfy journalists’ legitimate expectations during this transition period. Government communication is still insufficient and too few ministers make themselves available for answering questions from the media.In order to institutionalize a high-quality public debate and ensure that the freedom to inform becomes a solid and enduring pillar of Ethiopian society, RSF recommends:The rapid adoption of legislation that encourages media freedom, independence and pluralism by abolishing prison sentences and exorbitant fines for press offences, in accordance with the highest international standards.Revision of the bill on inciting hatred, so that it includes guarantees making it impossible to bring abusive prosecutions against journalists in connection with their work.The creation of a national mechanism for the protection of journalists in order to end impunity for abuses and crimes of violence against media personnel, as recommended in the United Nations Plan of Action on the Safety of Journalists.More transparency on the part of government officials and politicians about their activities, so that the public is better informed; in particular, a greater readiness to answer journalists’ questions.A fair, balanced and transparent allocation of state advertising and assistance to the media in order to encourage a pluralistic media landscape, one in which criticism is not punished by the withdrawal of state company advertising.An end to Internet cuts and to the disconnection of social networks, so that the unrestricted flow of online information is guaranteed throughout the country in accordance with international law.We thank you in advance for giving this letter all the required attention.Sincerely, Receive email alerts News May 22, 2019 Ethiopian leader urged to consolidate press freedom’s progress EthiopiaAfrica Freedom of expression Prime Minister Abiy AhmedOffice of the Prime MinisterP.O. Box 1031, Addis AbabaEthiopiaParis, 21 May 2019 Following press freedom’s spectacular progress in Ethiopia since last year’s change of government, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has written to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed recommending measures that will promote quality journalism and help ensure that the freedom to inform takes a lasting hold in his country.

Five media outlets shut down in Myanmar, one raided

first_img Organisation News News May 26, 2021 Find out more “We call on Myanmar’s military authorities to immediately restore the licences of the five banned media outlets,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The raid on Myanmar Now’s premises is a shocking act of intimidation and an intolerable violation of the confidentiality of sources. The UN Security Council must lose no time in reaching an agreement to sanction the ruling junta’s commanders and cut short their escalation towards the complete elimination of press freedom.” Myanmar is ranked 139th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Help by sharing this information The military government’s decision to cancel the licences of 7 Day News, Democratic Voice of Burma, Khit Thit News, Mizzima and Myanmar Now was announced without any warning by state-owned MRTV during its evening news broadcast. These media are no longer allowed to publish or broadcast articles, programmes or reports or transmit messages via social media, the announcement said.

RSF also denounces the shocking violation of the confidentiality of sources allowed by a raid on one of the outlets earlier in the day. MyanmarAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sources Judicial harassment Myanmar Now editor Swe Win confirmed to RSF that he had been expecting a raid of this kind ever since the start of last month’s coup. The level of persecution to which Myanmar’s journalists are being subjected has reached a new level, he said, adding: “We are now at a point where continuing to do our jobs means risking being jailed or killed.” Earlier yesterday, dozens of soldiers and police searched Myanmar Now’s headquarters in Yangon after smashing the padlocks sealing the entrance, and left with a great deal of material and documents but made no arrests. The premises were empty because Myanmar Now’s staff had not been using them even since the possibility of a coup was first rumoured on 28 January.

This growth rate is down slightly from earlier this month when GDPNow predicted growth of 0.6 percent for the quarter. Predicted GDP growth is at its lowest point in three years.Expectations for Q1 consumer spending growth also dropped slightly with this GDPNow forecast, falling from 0.6 percent growth to just 0.3 percent on the heels of a retail sales report from the U.S. Census Bureau and Consumer Price Index from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics—both released on Monday.GDPNow has predicted below-1 percent GDP growth multiple times this year, with the biggest drop earlier this month. On April 7, GDPNow’s growth estimate dipped from 1.2 percent to 0.6 percent. The forecast predicted a 2.3 percent growth rate on January 30.In March, Atlanta Fed economists attributed the decrease to the low volume of vehicle sales and a recently released report on employment from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.“The forecast for first-quarter real GDP growth fell 0.4 percentage points after the light vehicle sales release from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and the ISM Non-Manufacturing Report On Business from the Institute for Supply Management … and 0.2 percentage points after the employment release from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the wholesale trade release from the U.S. Census Bureau,” they said. “Since April 4, the forecasts for first-quarter real consumer spending growth and real nonresidential equipment investment growth have fallen from 1.2 percent and 9.7 percent to 0.6 percent and 5.6 percent, respectively.”According to the Financial Times, if estimates are correct, it will be the slowest quarter for GDP growth since 2014.

Sales slow at retailers

first_imgRetail sales volumes remained flat in April, defying expectations of growth, according to a new survey.The CBI’s latest monthly Distributive Trades Survey saw little sales growth from the Easter trading period, where sales volumes were broadly unchanged in the year to April.Sales volumes were well below average for the time of year, to a much greater extent than expected, said the CBI.Barry Williams, Asda’s chief merchandising officer for food, and chair of the CBI Distributive Trades Survey panel, said: “Retailers were frustrated by the ongoing stagnation in sales growth. This may be explained in part by the unseasonal weather we suffered, but there is no doubt that high street conditions are tricky with consumers lacking the confidence to go out and spend, as they still feel the pinch in their pocket.”The survey, conducted between 26 March and 10 April, found 36% of firms reported that sales volumes were up on a year earlier, while 37% said they were down, giving a balance of -1%. This was the lowest balance since August 2012 (-3%).last_img read more

The event will mark the first time the University has hosted a presidential debate, which Jenkins said should be seen as an opportunity.“As we prepare for the debate, let us also remember that it will shine a spotlight on our campus,” Jenkins said. “ … Let us do our best to embody our characteristic Notre Dame hospitality, and to show ourselves to be engaged, thoughtful and civil.”In the email, Jenkins also announced the “presidential debate and election” will be themes of the 2020 installment of the Notre Dame Forum, an annual occasion meant to promote discussion about issues the University deems important. The forum features an array of keynote events under a given theme.“Through these keynote events [in 2020], we hope to invite the campus community to explore the history of presidential debates, offer insights into what to look for in the debates and provide food for thought about the key issues before us as citizens in the upcoming election,” Jenkins said.Disruptions are expected, Jenkins said, as the University is expecting about 3,000 journalists and support staff from around the world to descend on campus ahead of the debate.Jenkins encouraged the Notre Dame community to use the event as an opportunity to engage in “serious, honest but civil discussion.”“The hosting of this debate and the coming election cycle is an opportunity for the members of this community to model vigorous and honest disagreement that is at the same time respectful and reasoned,” he said.Tags: 2020 general election, 2020 Presidential Debate, University President Fr.
