This extensive renovation of a typical post-war Japanese row house is located in the quiet northern suburbs of Kyoto. Over the years, the house had received a series of minor modifications, but the original structure was still evident.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraConceptually the approach was to strip back the house to its essential structure and remake the dwelling through careful intervention; legibly differentiating old and new. Spaciousness is created within this small home through darkness as well as light. Shadows extend almost infinitely above whilst the ground plane extends into the street, blurring the bounds of the small plot.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Yohei SasakuraInternally the black stained timber skeleton creates a spacious vertical void of shadows within which two pristine cedar boxes are inserted, almost as furniture. A box at the entry provides containment for the bathroom, kitchen and laundry, with an elevated sleeping loft accessed via a ladder. Atop this box, views are revealed to both the private and public realms of home and neighbourhood. At the rear, a new timber box is inserted, bringing lightness, warmth and connection to the street, buffered by a private garden.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraA series of layered screens and doors modify negotiation with the public domain and provide a variety of modes for adapting to Kyoto’s seasons — capturing winter sun and summer breezes as desired. In-floor heating and insulated glazing provide additional thermal comfort, without being evident in the aesthetic of the home.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Yohei SasakuraGiven the age and condition of the original building, much of the structure was augmented or replaced to comply with contemporary requirements for seismic safety and fire resistance. The exterior fabric was further adapted to provide improved thermal efficiency, acoustic separation and overall resilience.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraA simple and refined palette of materials is used throughout and was  selected to best utilize skilled local carpenters and plasterers. A close  working relationship with the builder and local suppliers allowed all timber to be sourced from the same managed forests in the Yoshino region of nearby Nara. This versatile cedar plays all roles; from structure, to joinery, cabinetry, linings and external cladding. Natural finishes of linseed oil and tannin-based stains were selected to complement the natural durability of the timber, allowing the material to age gracefully without maintenance.Save this picture!© Yohei SasakuraNatural grey cement floors and walls, with textured markings celebrating handmade finishing techniques, contrast the warmth of the timber. Brass trims, fixtures and custom lights bring flashes of gold within the shadows.Save this picture!Laneway Façade PlansSave this picture!© Yohei SasakuraIn contrast to the approach internally, the front façade has been carefully remade using traditional techniques, with distinctive elements — such as the mushikomado lattice window — restored through close collaboration with local craftspeople. Within the surrounding context of unsympathetically modified homes, this respect for the past is strangely a radical intervention. The quality of real trades and materials is evident when contrasted with the palette of prefabricated and plasticized finishes that dominate this typical Japanese suburb. The diminutive scale and fine permeability almost present the home as an historical artefact within the street, demonstrating an alternative to the towering and impregnable neighbours.

New York City rally demands: ‘Drop appeal of stop-and-frisk case!’

first_imgNew York City Hall protest, Nov. 6.WW photo: Greg ButterfieldPeople representing groups participating in the Communities United for Police Reform coalition held a rally and news conference on the steps of New York City Hall on Nov. 6. They called on the city of New York to drop its appeal of a court ruling in the Floyd case that struck down parts of the New York Police Department’s infamous stop-and-frisk racial profiling policy.The news conference took place one day after voters elected Democrat Bill de Blasio as mayor. During his campaign, de Blasio said he would end stop-and-frisk if elected. Speakers called on outgoing three-term mayor, Michael Bloomberg, to drop the appeal immediately.On Oct. 30, the Federal Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit granted the city a delay in implementing remedies to the stop-and-frisk policy ordered by Judge Shira Scheindlin pending the appeal. It also stripped the case from Scheindlin after she came under heavy attack from Bloomberg, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and the media.Either Bloomberg or, after Jan. 1, de Blasio could drop the appeal and order the NYPD to comply with the judge’s ruling.The case has national implications, with stop-and-frisk or similar policies being implemented in several other major cities, including Philadelphia and Oakland.The Center for Constitutional Rights, whose attorneys led the Floyd case, has called on people to demand that Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio drop the appeal of the verdict in the stop-and-frisk trial.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

International community urged to protect journalists in CAR

RSF decries arbitrary blocking of two CAR news websites News Related documents car_media_under_pressure.pdfPDF – 323.35 KB April 6, 2021 Find out more “You don’t check your facts. You lie. You say anything. We’ll soon deal with you.”“We read your articles. You are calling for the army’s return. We’re going to come looking for you.”“Be aware that we know who you are and you don’t know who we are. We advise you to say nothing and thank your God. Otherwise you’ll soon know who we are.”“Bangui is small and there’s nowhere to hide.”These telephone threats – some anonymous, some sent by people known to the recipient – were received in recent weeks by journalists in the Central African Republic or by members of the international NGOs that support the media there. Even more disturbingly, two CAR journalists – Désiré Luc Sayenga and René Padou – died of the injuries they received in a brutal attack on 30 April, the circumstances of which, at a time of widespread violent crime, are still unclear. And more recently, French photographer Camille Lepage’s body was found during a road patrol between the western towns of Bouar and Baboua on 13 May.These tragic events reflect the climate of extreme violence and terror that prevails not only for the CAR’s journalists but also for international reporters and the various media organizations carrying out programmes of support for the CAR media.Ever since the Seleka rebels toppled President Bozizé’s government in March 2013, succeeding governments have been unable to restore security either in Bangui or the interior of the country.The CAR’s media are trying to cover the various aspects of this conflict as best they can with almost no technical resources after being repeatedly attacked and ransacked. Some are trying to be professional but others have been guilty of violating journalistic ethics. The organizations that represent the CAR media are often the first to point out misconduct by their colleagues.Nonetheless, unprofessional conduct does not justify the psychological harassment, telephone intimidation and physical violence to which journalists and media support organizations are constantly exposed in connection with their work. These threats pose a real threat to freedom of expression and information.Here is a summary of known cases of persecution of journalists during the three months ending 31 May:- 2 journalists fatally attacked in unclear circumstances- 1 journalist killed in connection with her work- 24 journalists subject to various forms of harassment- 7 journalists threatened by telephone – 3 journalists subjected to physical violence- 4 journalists forced to flee the country because of threats – 5 journalists summoned by judicial authorities- 3 journalists arrestedInformation is a powerful weapon during conflicts. The media are often manipulated but, at the same time, they make a positive contribution by promoting citizenship and good governance, encouraging respect between communities and preparing public opinion for peace. The media’s strategic importance is therefore undeniable.This is why many media support organizations are operating in the CAR. Their work helps to reinforce media professionalism and journalists’ organizations. They are also assisting with the technical reequipping of many media companies and radio stations that were ransacked. All have the same desire to ensure that the CAR’s media are vehicles of peace and not hate.A more professional media community and the constant availability of good quality reporting are now essential if peace is to be restored in the CAR. Journalists, media owners, media representatives and international media support organizations all want to play their role, but they need an acceptable level of safety.They have nonetheless been targeted in recent months by those who want to suppress media diversity and keep the CAR’s media in the moral and economic limbo that characterizes their current existence.We therefore call on the transitional government, the civilian, military, religious and traditional authorities and the international community’s representatives to urgently address the plight of journalists in the CAR, to do everything possible to ensure respect for the right to information and the free flow of news, and to protect journalists in the course of their work.Signed by:CAR journalists’ and media organizations :Union des Journalistes Centrafricains (UJCA), Association des Radios Communautaires de Centrafrique (ARC), Observatoire des Médias Centrafricains (OMCA), Réseau des Médias Africains contre le Sida, la Tuberculose et le Paludisme (REMASTP/CA), Réseau des Journalistes pour les Droits de l’Homme (RJDH), Maison de la Presse et des Journalistes (MPJ) and Association des Femmes Professionnelles de la Communication (AFPC).International organizations supporting CAR media :Panos Institute Europe (IPE), Free Press Unlimited, Radio France Internationale, CFI (the French media cooperation agency), International Media Support, Internews, Search for Common Ground and Fondation Hirondelle.NGOs that defend journalists and the right to information :Reporters Without Borders and International Federation of Journalists RSF_en News Organisation December 13, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

Rights groups call for boycott of Beijing 2022 Winter Games

first_img Pinterest Rights groups call for boycott of Beijing 2022 Winter Games TAGS  Pinterest Twitter Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Twittercenter_img TOKYO (AP) — A coalition of 180 rights groups on Wednesday called for a boycott of next year’s Beijing Winter Olympics tied to reported human rights abuses against ethnic minorities in China. The games are to open in one year, on Feb. 4, 2022, and are set to go forward despite the pandemic. The coalition is composed of groups representing Tibetans, Uighurs, Inner Mongolians, residents of Hong Kong and others. The group has issued an open letter to governments calling for a boycott of the Olympics “to ensure they are not used to embolden the Chinese government’s appalling rights abuses and crackdowns on dissent.” Rights groups have previously asked the IOC to move the games from China. Olympic leaders have largely ignored the demands and say it’s only a sporting body that does not get involved with politics. The groups said because of the IOC’s inaction “it now falls on governments to take a stand and demonstrate that they have the political will to push back against China’s reprehensible human rights abuses.” Pro-Tibet activists held up their flags Wednesday outside the International Olympic Committee headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. Beijing hosted the 2008 Olympics, which it promised would improve human rights in the country. Instead, the groups say the prestige of the Olympics has led to “a gross increase on the assault on communities living under its rule.” The situation of the Uighurs in northwestern China has received most of the attention. Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated on his first day in office that he believed genocide was being committed against Xinjiang’s ethnic minorities. China has brushed off the criticisms as interference in its internal affairs and politicization of sports. It has reacted strongly to charges of genocide. One Chinese official called it the “lie of the century.” Since 2016, China has swept a million or more Uighurs and other predominantly Muslim minorities into prisons and indoctrination camps that the state calls training centers, according to estimates by researchers and rights groups. People have been subjected to torture, sterilization and political indoctrination in addition to forced labor as part of an assimilation campaign, according to former residents and detainees, as well as experts and leaked government documents. China at first denied the existence of the internment areas. It later acknowledged them, but denied any abuses and says the steps it has taken are necessary to combat terrorism and a separatist movement. “The IOC refused to listen in 2008, defending its decision with claims that they would prove to be a catalyst for improved human rights,” the letter says. “As human rights experts predicted, this decision proved to be hugely misplaced; not only did China’s human rights record not improve but violations increased substantially without rebuke. ——— More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP—Sports Facebook WhatsApp Previous articlePlaintiffs Announce Proposed $2 Billion Class Settlement in Monsanto Roundup™ Injury LitigationNext articleUnited States Scleroderma Market and Competitive Landscape Report 2021: Epidemiology, Key Products Marketed, Market Valuations and Forecast, Drugs Sales and Market Shares – ResearchAndMarkets.com Digital AIM Web Support WhatsApp Local NewsSportslast_img read more

Man accused of killing California officer Ronil Singh taken into custody after allegedly trying to flee to Mexico: Officials

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BAKERSFIELD, Calif.) — The man accused of gunning down a Northern California police officer was taken into custody Friday in Bakersfield, California, following a massive manhunt, officials said.The suspect, Gustavo Perez Arriaga, fled after shooting Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh, 33, at a traffic stop just before 1 a.m. Wednesday, according to the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department.An undocumented immigrant with known gang affiliations, the 32-year-old Arriaga tried to flee to Mexico after his alleged crime, authorities said Friday.Arriaga’s brother, Adrian Virgen, and co-worker, Erik Razo Quiroz, were arrested and accused of acting as accomplices, authorities said.Arriaga, who worked as a farm laborer, has two prior DUI arrests, authorities said, and Cpl. Singh pulled him over because he believed he was under the influence of alcohol.Singh’s brother, Reggie Singh, burst into tears as he thanked law enforcement for working so quickly to make an arrest.“I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” he said at a news conference, overcome with emotion.The motive is not clear, authorities said, adding they believe Arriaga was alone when he committed the crime.Ronil Singh, a native of Fiji, had been with the Newman Police Department since July 2011, the sheriff’s office said. He previously served with the Merced County Sheriff’s Department, according to a statement from California Gov. Jerry Brown.Ronil Singh is survived by his wife and 5-month-old son, according to officials.President Donald Trump weighed in on the shooting on Thursday after Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson said the suspect was in the country illegally.“This suspect — unlike Ron, who immigrated to this country lawfully and legally to pursue his lifelong career of public safety, public service and being a police officer — is in our country illegally,” Christianson said Thursday.“There is right now a full scale manhunt going on in California for an illegal immigrant accused of shooting and killing a police officer during a traffic stop,” Trump tweeted Thursday. “Time to get tough on Border Security.

New York City mom plans $10 million lawsuit against police after arrest for improperly wearing face mask

first_imgCourtesy Sanford Rubenstein(NEW YORK) — BY: CHRISTINA CARREGAA New York City mom who believes she was wrongfully arrested for not properly wearing a face mask while on the subway platform, intends to file a $10 million notice of claim against the city for excessive force, her attorney says.Kaleemah Rozier, 22, said she was on her way home with her 5-year-old son inside the Atlantic Avenue–Barclays Center station in Brooklyn on May 13 when she was approached by several unidentified NYPD officers. “I just want justice,” said Rozier to ABC News on Wednesday in a phone interview.Police said Rozier was not properly wearing a face mask over her mouth and nose. When she was asked to comply with the orders or get “ejected from the station,” Rozier allegedly refused and cursed at the officers, a NYPD spokeswoman said.Wearing a face mask while in public is a recommendation given by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, but has been mandatory in New York state, when unable to stay at least six feet from others, since April, including on public transportation.A bystander began recording the incident as the crowd of officers escorted Rozier and her little boy up the stairs of the subway station.Police told ABC New York station WABC after the arrest that Rozier threatened to cough on the officers, but authorities did not mention that element of the case in their statement to ABC News on Wednesday. Rozier reportedly told the New York Daily News that she made the threat, but said it was only after police started following her through the station.While on the upper level of the station, the encounter quickly escalated as Rozier’s son was “pulled away from her” and she was forced to the floor and an officer placed a knee on the back of her neck, according to the notice of claim provided to ABC News and expected to be filed on Thursday morning.“Do not do this in front of your kid mam,” an officer allegedly told Rozier.Rozier, 22, who claims she was not resisting, said she was “pushed in the back of her head and neck to the ground, had her arm pulled and twisted, had a knee pressed in the back of her neck and forcefully placed in handcuffs” by at least six police officers, the notice of claim read.According to the notice of claim, some of Rozier’s injuries are “to the neck, back, left wrist, right wrist, left hip, left knee.”Police said in their statement that Rozier “waived her arms and struck an officer with her hand. As a result of these actions, she was taken into custody and placed under arrest.”The 2-minute video of Rozier’s confrontation with police and subsequent arrest was later posted on social media.Shortly after Rozier’s arrest, Mayor Bill de Blasio condemned the incident as “just not right” during a news conference and announced NYPD officers were no longer allowed to arrest anyone who was not wearing a protective face mask.However, “that doesn’t undue the physical and psychological injuries suffered by this mother and her 5-year-old son as the result of the actions taken by these NYPD officers,” said Sanford Rubenstein, an attorney for Rozier.Rozier said her son has had trouble sleeping since the incident.“No amount of money can substitute the psychological damage a 5-year-old child has suffered by watching his mother get brutalized by the NYPD,” Rev. Kevin McCall, a civil rights activist, said in a statement.Rozier was separated from her son and held in a cell for about four hours before she was given a desk appearance ticket for three misdemeanors — resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and harassment — and released, according to the notice of claim. She currently has no court date scheduled.“We will review the claim once it is received,” said Hazel Crampton-Hays, a spokeswoman with the city’s Comptroller’s Office.The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office “is looking into dismissing the charges,” said Oren Yaniv, a spokesman for the office.The Civilian Complaint Review Board received three complaints stemming from this incident, a spokesman confirmed to ABC News on Wednesday.Prior to Rozier’s arrest, data released by the Brooklyn DA’s office and collected by ABC News from other borough’s DA’s offices showed that between March 16 and May 5, the NYPD arrested and issued summonses to mostly blacks and Latinos, for allegedly violating social distancing and other violations. Of the 374 summonses issued during that time frame, 193 are African American, 111 are Hispanic, 51 are white, 14 are Asian and three are American Indian.The city spent $220.1 million in notice of claims settlements filed against the NYPD during the 2019 fiscal year, according to the comptroller’s annual report released last Friday.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
