On the outskirts of the city of Córdoba, on a lot with a downward slope facing northwest, the house opens towards the Sierras Chicas hills. The fundamental premise of the project is to achieve a horizontal plane intervening as little as possible in the natural topography of the hillside.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteOnly the landscape can be seen from the street while the house remains hidden. Its walls emerge from the ground joined to the soil, with the roof being the protagonist. An exterior staircase acts as the main entrance and descends to a central courtyard that organizes the arrival to the interior. The pool, overflowing towards the horizon, is at the end of the access axis.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe main volume is projected In the perpendicular direction, housing a fundamental part of the program including both housing and working spaces. Another volume that functions as a study and a barbeque area is located on the opposite side of the lot. Both volumes protect the courtyard from the wind, creating a particular microclimate while incorporating the exterior space into family life.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe windows of the facade, with the possibility of being completely opened, allow a connection between the interior and the exterior through the courtyard, generating the concept of a gallery-house.A vehicular level entry, comfortable enough in relation to the slope, blocks the south facade from the most intense rains.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe social floor, consisting of a single environment of 7m x 23m, is located one level below the main street, favouring a more intimate life from all angles. The bedrooms are arranged on the lower floor, which is accessed through a staircase from the social floor, almost as an “access to a cave”, in the words of the authors. The lower level generates a comfortable climate.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteStructurally, there is a succession of inverted overhangs. The wall was treated as a large beam in the south over the gallery of the lower floor and to the north, between the living room and the pool, freeing the area from columns and allowing better visuals.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteIn terms of materiality, bare concrete was used in the walls, porphyry in the floors and ceilings and wood in the living room sector, in order to achieve warmth in the interior and minimum maintenance in the exterior spaces.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessAlley Cat Backyard Home / SHED Architecture & DesignSelected ProjectsCanaux’s Circular Shade House / WAOSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeBender Freiberg ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCordobaOn FacebookArgentinaPublished on March 06, 2020Cite: “A House Hidden in the Landscape / Bender Freiberg Arquitectos” [Casa Escondida en el paisaje / Bender Freiberg Arquitectos] 06 Mar 2020.

Respected journalist gunned down in Balochistan

first_imgNews News News April 21, 2021 Find out more PakistanAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information PakistanAsia – Pacific December 15, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Respected journalist gunned down in Balochistan Follow the news on Pakistan Reporters Without Borders is deeply shocked by journalist Muhammad Khan Sasoli’s murder yesterday in Khuzdar, a town in the southwestern province of Balochistan that sees frequent clashes between government security forces and armed Balochi nationalists. The correspondent of Royal TV and the INP news agency and president of the town’s press club, he was gunned down outside his home.Reporters Without Borders urges the local and federal authorities to carry out an exhaustive investigation into the murders of Sasoli and the three other journalists killed this year in Balochistan. Only by arresting and punishing their murderers will the authorities be able to put a stop to the violence against Pakistani journalists, which has reached an unprecedented level in 2010.It is deplorable that since US reporter Daniel Pearl’s murder in 2002, no one has been brought to trial for the murder of a journalist in Pakistan. A total of 12 journalists have been killed in Pakistan this year alone.Aged 36, Sasoli was a “serious and professional journalist,” colleagues told Reporters Without Borders. He was shot four times in the head and chest by two men on motorcycle waiting outside his house and died instantly.No group has so far claimed the killing. Khuzdar Press Club vice-president Riaz Mengal said Sasoli was not a member of any nationalist party or group. “We are being targeted and the government is not taking any measures to protect journalists in this province,” he said.Balochistan, especially the Khuzdar district, is extremely dangerous for journalists because of the “dirty war” being waged between the security forces and Balochi nationalists.Three other journalists have been killed in the district this year. They are Abdul Hameed Hayatan, who was killed on 18 November, Ejaz Raisini, killed on 3 September, and Faiz Muhammad Sasoli, killed on 27 June. center_img RSF_en Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Organisation January 28, 2021 Find out more News June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalistslast_img read more

North Korea online: the digital “self-reliance” theoryRecently, North Korea officially entered the World Wide Web to wage a propaganda war against South Korea and the United States. The regime equipped itself with an army of hackers instructed to destroy websites and practice espionage. Most were trained at Mirim College, an authentic ultra-secure, and clandestine hacker training center. The regime has simultaneously been keeping the great majority of the population away from the Web, even the very limited and ultra-censored national intranet (see the North Korea chapter of the 2011 “Enemies of the Internet” report).The development of new technologies was one objective of the latest “New Year Editorial,” which set the priorities for the coming months, in keeping with the country’s ”self-reliance” theory, the juche. On the blog NorthKoreaTech.org, Martyn Williams discussed the publication in the official media, of a staged photo of workers inspecting computers in a factory. Mere propaganda? Yet more and more North Korean media are launching their own Internet websites, such as Voice of Korea. The newspaper of the Workers’ Party, Rodong Shinmun, appears to be adapting to new technologies by sending news to its subscribers’ mobile phones. Transmissions are being made via MMS to compensate for the lack of smartphones.The popularity of cell phonesCould economic factors be fueling the current telecommunications boom? In January 2011, Kim Jong-il’s warm reception of Orascom Telecom’s Chairman, Egyptian businessman Naguib Sawiris, who set up the country’s 3G mobile phone network via Koryolink, was interpreted by the elites and general public as a sign that the security services would approve an expanded use of the networks – provided, of course, that doing so would not prove a threat to the regime. North Korea is allegedly planning to allow access to the Internet and mobile phones in the Mount Kumgang Special Tourist District, which had previously been the subject of a development agreement with Hyundai.The explosion in the number of mobile phones – one million 3G subscribers as of early February 2012 out of a population of 24 million inhabitants – may constitute a factor in the opening of this market. However, the network only functions within the country and is still subject to close surveillance. The government, now incapable of monitoring everything, is setting a few examples to keep other users in line. In addition to the official network, North Koreans living within a radius of about 12 miles of the Chinese border have the (illegal) option of connecting to the Chinese mobile network. The authorities have intensified the crackdowns and fines for simply making an international call, which can run as high as 1 million wons (about $1,100) along with one week of detention. In addition to jamming telephone networks, the North Korean regime has established a surveillance system for calls placed from North Korea. Moreover, the high cost of calls for a portion of the population, and geographical constraints, have limited the use of mobile phones among the rest of the population.News smuggling along the Chinese borderNews smuggling along the Chinese border creates a hard-to-eradicate situation, yet several special units, such as “Group 109,”have been set up – some by Kim Jong-un himself before assuming leadership of the country – to thwart these clandestine activities. The government is also monitoring citizens who travel to China. Any person who criticizes the regime or engages in reprehensible activities such as using the Chinese Internet – which is by no means free – can be denounced.Despite harsher crackdowns and the illegal nature of such markets, they are extremely active and their use is spreading. They are the place of transit for Korean and U.S. series DVDs and CDs, as well as USB flash drives. Korean associations also distribute, through other channels, stealth USBs containing news about democracy and human rights, and designed to appeal to the country’s dissidents, students and intellectual elites.Many questions concerning the country’s future and its communications system remain unanswered. Will Kim Jong-un be a more open-minded successor? Or just a front for a regime actually led by a military junta? His past experience as head of a unit responsible for using terror tactics to control the smuggling of “impure” media is raising concern. Yet one thing is certain: the development of an underground economy and the permeability of the Sino-Korean border, combined with an expansion of regime-approved mobile telephony, are key factors for the prospect of a gradual opening up of North Korea. The world’s most closed country’s absolute control over the media became evident during the events surrounding the death of Kim Jong-il and the meticulous staging of his succession. Yet official and unofficial telecom markets have been booming. The new leader Kim Jong-un’s policy regarding basic freedoms appears to be a continuation of his father’s, which understandably worries the international community.

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. Community Reinvestment Act House Financial Services Committee Opportunity Zones 2020-01-16 Mike Albanese Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, sent letters to the Comptroller of the Currency and the Chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, requesting information on the systems and policies for the Community Reinvestment Act rulemaking process. “The Committee is concerned by reports alleging that certain special interest groups have submitted comments in other rulemakings while posing as consumers, small business owners, and other stakeholders,” Water wrote. “These fraudulent comments undermine legitimate debate on proposed rules by creating the false appearance that a position has widespread, grassroot support. …Given the critical importance of CRA to low- and moderate-income communities, the Committee is interested in ensuring any amendments to the CRA are made with full and accurate input from all interested parties.”The House Financial Services Committee said as the OCC and the FDIC have advanced proposals has the Community Reinvestment Act is implemented. The release states Waters and Committee Democrats have worked to ensure that the implementation of the law is not weakened. The Committee is concerned by reports alleging that certain special interest groups have submitted comments in other rulemakings while posing as consumers, small business owners, and other stakeholders,” Waters said in her letter. “These fraudulent comments undermine legitimate debate on proposed rules by creating the false appearance that a position has widespread, grassroots support. Such misrepresentations have been increasing in frequency and complexity in recent years.” Waters said in late 2019 that the Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton quoted comments that were submitted under “suspicious circumstances” in a recent rulemaking. “In 2016, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s efforts to receive comments regarding its payday lending rule were frustrated by an influx of over a million comments, many of which were allegedly created by trade groups to appear as if they came from concerned consumers,” she said. The Financial Services Committee will hold a hearing on January 29 titled, “The Community Reinvestment Act: Is the OCC Undermining the Law’s Purpose and Intent?”On December 19, 2019, the IRS published final regulations on Opportunity Zones. In a commentary on Bloomberg Tax, Forest David Milder partner in the law firm Nixon Peabody, LLP, discusses the highlights of the 544-page regulation publication.Key details Milder notes include the 180-day investing period, the “100% Substantial Improvement Rule,” and tax consequences of sales after 10 years, which Milder notes is the “biggest challenge of all.” Previous: FHFA: PACE Loans a Threat to GSEs?
