This house occupies a plot in a housing development called Caselles d’Avall, located in the municipality of Porqueres, on the way from Banyoles to Besalú. It is a small-sized plot, in a very steeply sloped terrain. It is oriented to North-East, where the best views are, from Martís Plain in the foreground, to Torroella’s castle with the sea in the background (in clear days). In winter, Banyoles’ Pond can be seen. The house enclosure is made of perforated metallic dark yellow sheets to protect it from the street views. Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe building tries to unfold itself in order to cover the entire plot. We began the project drawing lines all over the surface, from the street to the last border of the plot, from one corner to the other, retracing all the contour lines and trying to retain this topography. With the will to know the site, these lines try to reveal its qualities. The first contention walls appear, and between them, the first spaces. We like to recognise in the walls, the foundations and in the future building the lines that began the project and are built now. These lines will define the volume-spaces which will occupy a part of the excavated space, or a part of the air space: facing the back to the street, and closing more private spaces which look to the landscape.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe programme is organised in a traditional way by adding volume-spaces. The main volume, which will be shared by the whole family, is located in a central place. It organises the common spaces such as the kitchen, the dinning and living rooms. Above these spaces, there is the library and the studio, linked to the landscape through big horizontal windows. Complexly, the walls/construction lines organise the adjacent space-volumes. Firstly, the garage with the son’s room over it, the night parents’ spaces and a guest room in an intermediate and isolated space, the space for the daughter (half underground) illuminated by windows aligned with the swimming pool level. We like to think of this disposition as the result of a negotiation between the architect and the customer, the family: parents, son and daughter; where compromise and dialogue play an important part, and there is a will to share decisions and ambitions.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaA daily dialogue: a project that can be interrupted at some points, that has to adapt itself to the opinions that the user would have. To build with the capability to correct, assuming the corrections as embeddable data in the project and that can create a meeting point with the customer. No structural show-off, just according to the customer and builder possibilities. We are interested, especially in domestic architecture, that it should not be an imposed previous formal desire, but a silently and easily accepted habitat. There should be certain complicity, assuming reasonable conditions of comfort and use. It is not about windows or enormous uncleanable surfaces, but cutting parts of the landscape to be framed… And in silence, as if it was years since it was built.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessWhere Automobiles & Architecture MeetArchitecture NewsWinners of the World Habitat Awards AnnouncedArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeJosep MiàsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSant Joan de les AbadessesHousesSpainPublished on November 03, 2013Cite: “CASELLES / Josep Miàs ” 03 Nov 2013.

Fundamentalists target Twitter and Facebook in unprecedented move

first_img Help by sharing this information Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria NigeriaAfrica RSF_en News Nigerian investigative journalist forced to flee after massacre disclosures NigeriaAfrica Nigerian news site deliberately blocked, expert report confirms March 24, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Fundamentalists target Twitter and Facebook in unprecedented move June 10, 2021 Find out more Newscenter_img News Receive email alerts Organisation Reporters Without Borders deplores yesterday’s ruling by an Islamic court in Kaduna, in the northern state of Zamfara, ordering a Nigerian human rights group, the Civil Rights Congress, to close its blog and stop hosting debates on Twitter and Facebook about the use of amputation to punish theft. The debates were prompted by the 10th anniversary of Nigeria’s first amputation under Sharia law.“An Islamic court has banned an online debate about the Sharia and human rights for the first time in Nigeria,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This order may be hard to enforce, but there is a real risk that it could encourage widespread self-censorship.” The press freedom organisation added: “It has set a disturbing precedent in a country that has so far not introduced Internet controls and is indicative of the mistrust that some fundamentalist groups feel towards online interactivity. We support the Civil Rights Congress in its determination to challenge this decision.”Judge Lawal Mohammed of Kaduna’s Magajin Gari court yesterday issued an order “restraining the respondents (the CRC) either by themselves or their agents from opening a chat forum on Facebook, Twitter, or any blog for the purpose of the debate on the amputation of Malam Buba Bello Jangebe.”Jangebe was the first person to be punished by amputation of the hand after the Sharia was introduced in 12 northern states including Zamfara. The sentence set off a wave of condemnation both in Nigeria and abroad.The court issued the injunction in response to a complaint filed on 19 March by the Moslem Brotherhood of Nigeria alleging that the online debates were making “a mockery of the Sharia system.”The head of the CRC, Shehu Sani, said his organisation would appeal against the order. “We opened the blog and the Facebook and Twitter chats to give Nigerians a platform to air their views on Sharia law and on the justification or otherwise of amputation,” he said. to go further February 8, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Nigeria January 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Local Childline appeal for volunteers

first_imgNewsLocal NewsLocal Childline appeal for volunteersBy admin – August 11, 2010 382 Print Advertisement Facebook CHILDLINE in Limerick has sent out an urgent request for more volunteers to deal with the ever increasing number of calls being put through to their helpline.It emerged this week that Childline Ireland experienced an 11% increase in calls relating to abuse and welfare of children in 2009, and want further volunteers to cope, as 40% of calls remain unanswered.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Information evenings on volunteering will be held throughout August at the ISPCC premises on 115 O’Connell Street.The Limerick branch provides the Childline and Teenfocus services which supports children by valuing, respecting and empowering them to make real change in their lives.Approximately 17,000 calls are received by Childline every week, and over 1,000 of these are answered by Limerick volunteers.Last year, the number of referrals to support services doubled.However, the organisation is aiming to build on the 60% of calls which are currently being answered in the remainder of 2010, and are hoping for an increase in volunteers to help achieve this goal.ISPCC volunteers work closely with young people and their families around these and other issues.Local staff and volunteers continue to advocate for the rights of all children nationally and closer to home in conjunction with the services they provide to young people.The Teenfocus service provides a mentoring and counselling service to youths aged 13 to 18 in the city and county who are at risk of the misuse of drugs and alcohol, or are experiencing challenges at home, in school or finding it hard to cope.The ISPCC is calling for a ban on all physical punishment of children, welcoming the research carried out on behalf of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs (Parenting Styles and Discipline: OMCYA June 2010).Also, the society believes that there is huge potential to work with parents to develop their skills further, and to strengthen parental understanding of, and use of, non-aggressive parenting strategies.ISPCC’s services in Limerick would not be possible without the continued commitment from their team of dedicated volunteers.Volunteers need no previous experience as full training and support is provided. However, a genuine commitment to supporting children and young people and the ability to listen with warmth, patience and an open mind are essential.An information evening will be held on Monday August 9 at 6.30pm at 115 O’Connell Street.Contact 061 400077 for more information.

Threats to seabirds: A global assessment

first_imgWe present the first objective quantitative assessment of the threats to all 359 species of seabirds, identify the main challenges facing them, and outline priority actions for their conservation. We applied the standardised Threats Classification Scheme developed for the IUCN Red List to objectively assess threats to each species and analysed the data according to global IUCN threat status, taxonomic group, and primary foraging habitat (coastal or pelagic). The top three threats to seabirds in terms of number of species affected and average impact are: invasive alien species, affecting 165 species across all the most threatened groups; bycatch in fisheries, affecting fewer species (100) but with the greatest average impact; and climate change/severe weather, affecting 96 species. Overfishing, hunting/trapping and disturbance were also identified as major threats to seabirds. Reversing the top three threats alone would benefit two-thirds of all species and c. 380 million individual seabirds (c. 45% of the total global seabird population). Most seabirds (c. 70%), especially globally threatened species, face multiple threats. For albatrosses, petrels and penguins in particular (the three most threatened groups of seabirds), it is essential to tackle both terrestrial and marine threats to reverse declines. As the negative effects of climate change are harder to mitigate, it is vital to compensate by addressing other major threats that often affect the same species, such as invasive alien species, bycatch and overfishing, for which proven solutions exist.last_img read more

HMS Lancaster Arrives in Portsmouth, UK

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today HMS Lancaster Arrives in Portsmouth, UK Training & Education Share this article “Seven months is a long time to be away from friends and family, however the successes we have seen on this deployment make the time away worth it.”During six raids the ship intercepted 1.2 tonnes of cocaine and almost 1.5 tonnes of cannabis. Lancaster also detained 23 drug-runners and disrupted a sizeable amount of drugs which were ditched in the sea.Since leaving the UK in May, Lancaster has clocked up over 30,000 miles and made 20 port visits to 18 countries. She visited all six of the British Overseas Territories in the region, starting with Bermuda and ending with Montserrat, as well as Commonwealth states such as Jamaica, Belize and Barbados.She also stopped off at a number of other islands in the area such as Dutch Curacao, French Martinique, as well as visiting the South American country of Columbia.In the majority of the places Lancaster’s 185 crew put their skilled labour to good use by helping out the local community in a wide range of projects from re-roofing houses and building bridges to painting hospitals and restoring cemeteries.In September Lancaster took part in Exercise Unitas – a week-long multinational exercise involving 16 warships and submarines from nine nations ranging from Canada to Chile.The ship’s Commanding Officer, Commander Peter Laughton, said:“What Lancaster has achieved over the last seven months is nothing short of remarkable.“The variety of roles that the ship has undertaken and the range of successes that have been achieved demonstrate the versatility of a frigate in this region.“We have trained on a small scale with many islands’ coast guards as well as operated as part of a task group alongside other navies in Exercise Unitas, and our counter narcotic operations speak for themselves.“Throughout all of this Lancaster has remained poised to respond to any natural disaster and provide life saving support.“I am extremely proud of my ship’s company who have worked tirelessly over the last seven months on the front line of naval operations and ultimately protecting our nation’s interests.”Lancaster’s weapon engineer officer and press officer Lieutenant Commander Adrian Gubby added:“Seven months is a long time to be away from friends and family, however the successes we have seen on this deployment make the time away worth it”.“The press coverage of the deployment has been fantastic and I am proud that my team have been a part of spreading the good news of Lancaster being in the region during her various visits, ensuring the drug runners knew we were here to get them, and also let people at home know what we have been doing in the Caribbean.”Able Seaman James Duffy, the coxswain of one of Lancaster’s sea boats who hails from the ship’s namesake town, said:“This has been a really successful deployment and I am really proud to have been a part of it.“All the guys have dug out and looked out for each other and it is the team effort by everyone on board Lancaster that has made us so successful.”[mappress]Press Release, December 16, 2013; Image: Royal Navy HMS LANCASTER SAILING INTO PORTSMOUTHPortsmouth-based warship HMS Lancaster returns home to Portsmouth on Wednesday (December 18) from a successful drug-busting deployment to the North Atlantic and Caribbean.

The String Cheese Incident Releases Uncirculated 1999 Show To Promo New Album, ‘Believe’

first_imgThe String Cheese Incident has been on a roll the last few weeks, with their intimate Winter Carnival 2017 Roots Revival tour wrapping up this weekend with a three-night stand at the Crystal Bay Club in Crystal Bay, Nevada. (You can check out some photos from this past weekend in Telluride, including from their ski-to-show performance on the mountain, here.) However, while Cheese has been tapping into their ski-town roots, the band is still looking to the future, with their brand-new album, Believe, dropping next month on April 14th via SCI Fidelity Records. As an extra goodie for fans who pre-order album on Pledge Music, String Cheese Incident just announced that they’re sweetening the pot a little by offering an exclusive download of a previously unreleased and uncirculated soundboard from their fall tour of 1999. This new recording is from their performance at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York, on the day before Halloween and is a special show for sure.Keller Williams, the musical renaissance man, had joined Cheese for the tour, supporting the band not just as an opener but also as an emergency bass player. Bassist Keith Moseley and his wife, Kristin, were expecting their first child any day at the time, and in the event that Keith needed to leave the tour to be with his family, Keller was ready to take over. For this new 10/30/1999 recording, Keller is invited to sit-in on bass during the breezy “Suntan” halfway through the first set. Keller also reemerges during the second set, this time joining in on guitar during “Vacate,” a track off of Breathe, Keller and String Cheese’s collaborative album which was released around the time of the show.Predictably, the band works songs from their older catalog throughout the show. Many of these tunes have more-or-less dropped out of Cheese’s regular song rotation over the past eighteen years, such as “Bigger Isn’t Better,” which is played during the tail end of the second set. As is the String Cheese way, the show is chock full of covers including String Cheese’s takes on jazz classics such as Miles Davis’ “Footprints” and Alfred James Ellis’ “The Chicken.” The band also sprinkles more familiar crowdpleasers throughout the performance including The Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker,” Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie on Reggae Woman,” and a bluegrass-y take on Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” to close out the show.You can check out the full setlist from their 10/30/1999 show below. To hear it for yourself, pre-order Believe here. With your pre-order, in addition to the 10/30/1999 show, you also get a download of a secret acoustic set from 12/30/2016 a few hours before their main show during their 2016 New Years run, six extended demos from the Sedona Sessions, and the entirety of the new album when it comes out on April 14th (along with a handful of its tracks for download immediately), all for only $10, which certainly seems like a lot of bang for your buck for us Cheese enthusiasts.Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Colgate University | Hamilton, NY | 10/30/1999Set 1: Miss Brown’s Teahouse, Chili Dawg > The Hobo Song, Suntan (with Keller on bass), The Joker, Don’t Say > Whiskey Before BreakfastSet 2: The Chicken, Shine > I’ve Just Seen A Face, Sing A New Song, Vacate (with Keller), Bigger Isn’t Better > Boogie On Reggae WomanEncore: Footprints > Walk This Waylast_img read more
