first_imgWednesday Jan 18, 2012 Mike Brown named Aviva Premiership Player of the Month for December Harlequins’ Mike Brown has been voted the Aviva Premiership Player of the Month for December. Brown has been in fantastic form, making the decision easy for the panel of rugby media that included writers, broadcasters, and photographers.“Mike has reinvented himself this year and turned himself into a world class player who we believe will deservedly make his Test debut in this year’s RBS 6 Nations,” said Paul Morgan.“He exemplifies the reasons why Harlequins sit on top of the Aviva Premiership Rugby table and the award is our way or showing how impressed we have been with Mike’s form.”Would you stick with Ben Foden for England, or give Brown a lengthy Six Nations opportunity?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Cabana / Atelier LAVIT

first_img General Contractor:Nid PerchéCity:Es CubellsCountry:SpainMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITRecommended ProductsDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsText description provided by the architects. Cabana is a hidden private room nested in the bush of residential area Es Cubells, along the west coast of Ibiza. The suite is an annex to the main villa and represents a refuge for the owner and his guests looking for a more essential and primordial experience. The architecture is designed according to island’s climate. Facing south and overlooking the valley and the sea, the roof and walls have been oriented so that the inhabited volume and outdoor spaces are always naturally shaded. The different densities of the vertical wooden screens around the hut guarantee the privacy of its occupiers as well as sheltering them from the sun and the wind.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITThe interior space as well as the exterior are therefore protected from the sun thanks to the pergola overlaying the terrace. The entire reflection was brought to the geometry of the roof, the pergola, and the glass surfaces, resulting in a luminous and naturally ventilated environment both day and night.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITThe internal organization of the suite is simple and rational, each corner is designed so no space is lost. The bathroom and the dressing cabin are separated from the bedroom while contributing to its lighting and ventilation. The idea is of a fluid and continuous space, open to the outside and to nature while maintaining the necessary confidentiality and the feeling of protection proper to each shelter.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITThe large glass surfaces allow you to project yourself into the surrounding landscape with a 180° panorama view and once opened, the room and the terrace become a continuous space where you can easily walk barefoot. The wood used for the external coverings of the hut is Douglas pine, excellent for its durability, as well as having a very interesting specific weight to maintain the lightness of the whole structure. The terrace, on the other hand, is made of larch wood, with non-slip striped blades. Inside, the room has walls and a ceiling covered in poplar wood, a light and fragrant essence. The parquet is chestnut wood, chosen for its strong resistance to wear.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITDuring the day, the experience inside the suite is a show of light and shadow with the sun filtering through the screens. After sunset the effect is reversed, immersed in darkness and illuminated only by the moon, the hut evokes a lantern, radiating the internal golden light between the wooden slats. In order to simplify the unforeseen in a remote site, the project was largely prefabricated in a wood workshop in the south of France. The components were numbered, dismantled and rebuilt on site within three weeks. Prefabrication reduced production costs and on-site costs during installation, impacting the landscape as little as possible.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVITProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: A’ Design Awards & Competition 2019-2020Call for SubmissionsKULT Barber Shop / Sivak&PartnersSelected Projects Share Cabana / Atelier LAVIT ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924774/cabana-atelier-lavit Clipboard Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Projects Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier LAVIT+ 23Curated by María Francisca González Share Year:  Houses CopyHouses•Es Cubells, Spain “COPY” Area:  25 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Lead Architect: 2019 Marco Lavit Nicora Cabana / Atelier LAVITSave this projectSaveCabana / Atelier LAVIT CopyAbout this officeAtelier LAVITOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookEs CubellsSpainPublished on September 16, 2019Cite: “Cabana / Atelier LAVIT” 16 Sep 2019.

Government restricts coverage of protests

first_img Discontent with the country’s economic problems and the high rate of violent crime are fueling the protests that erupted earlier this month. Protesters and human rights groups grievances include government control of the media.The political tension has also had an impact on journalists’ safety. Shots were deliberately fired at Karen Mendez, the correspondent of the Peruvian online newspaper El Comercio, while she was covering the protests and demonstrators threw stones at María Iginia Silva while she was editing a report on the protests for Globovisión. Journalists working for state media have not been spared. Jilfredo Alejandro Barradas, a photographer with the State Communication and Information Office, sustained a gunshot injury while covering the demonstrations on motorcycle. A group of protesters assaulted the VTV headquarters with Molotov cocktails and other explosives. Rafael Hernández of the magazine Exceso and the blogger Ángel Matute were arrested while covering the unrest on 12 February and remained in police custody for three days. When a judge released them on 15 February, he ordered them not to cover the demonstrations.The head of the National Telecommunication Commission (CONATEL) reacted to the scale of the protests by announcing on 11 February that “coverage of the violent events” was punishable under the Radio, TV and Electronic Media Social Responsibility Law (RESORTMEC), which bans content condoning violence or hatred.The authorities began carrying out this threat the next day when the protests turned violent, with three reported deaths and many gunshot injuries, both civilian and police. Venezuelan viewers suddenly found themselves deprived of access to NTN24, a Colombian TV news station that had been reporting the opposition’s demands. Even social networks, normally resistant to all forms of censorship, have been affected. Many people who use the national Internet Service Provider CANTV have reported that their access to photos has been blocked on Twitter, as confirmed by Twitter’s official spokesperson, Nu Wexler. He immediately suggested an alternative by SMS: “Users blocked in #Venezuela: Follow + receive notifications via SMS of any Twitter account. Send SEGUIR (usuario) to 89338.”“We condemns these arbitrary acts of censorship, which are being implemented outside of any established administrative or judicial procedures and which are all the more disturbing for coming against a backdrop of government harassment of local and international news providers,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. “We join local free speech organizations in pointing out that control of news coverage will just exacerbate the current situation and fuel the extreme media polarization currently prevailing in Venezuela.”“We are also concerned by the threat economic asphyxiation of newspapers causes for pluralism.”Accused by the government of waging “war propaganda,” the Venezuelan media are also threatened by structural problems – the shortage of raw material, including newsprint. Many newspapers have been forced to print smaller or fewer issues or suspend printing altogether. The list of those affected gets longer by the day. Around 20 newspapers are currently in danger. Ironically, the authorities systematically harass media that mention the shortages.Under the protection policies adopted when Hugo Chávez was president, newspapers have to obtain dollars to import newsprint as Venezuela does not produce any of its own. The procedures for getting the foreign currency and the newsprint they need to operate have become increasingly complex. The requirement to apply to the government for dollars has given the authorities a say in the number of copies the newspapers print and distribute.The government has responded with conspiracy theory to accusations that it is deliberately starving the newspapers of newsprint. Ruling party legislator Julio Chávez has gone so far as to accuse the media of deliberately hoarding newsprint in order to put pressure on the government.According to the authorities, newsprint imports rose by more than 30 per cent in 2013 although Venezuelan newspapers kept on reducing the number of copies they print.Various factors make Venezuela one of the western hemisphere’s most worrying countries as regards freedom of information. They include the requirement for broadcast media to carry government speeches, called cadenas, the creation of a new intelligence agency with powers that threaten access to information, a restrictive legal framework, and the government’s systematic harassment of news media and journalists. As a result, Venezuela is ranked 116th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index.Photos: Mariana Vincenti RSF_en to go further February 18, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government restricts coverage of protests News Help by sharing this information VenezuelaAmericas Follow the news on Venezuela Organisation August 25, 2020 Find out more VenezuelaAmericas center_img June 15, 2020 Find out more News New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets Receive email alerts Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives News News Two journalists murdered just days apart in Venezuela January 13, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Talk of maintaining new rules for foreign journalists after Olympics is greeted with scepticism

first_img Reporters Without Borders said it took note of yesterday’s statement by State Council information office minister Cai Wu that the new rules for the foreign press that were introduced in January as part of the preparations for next August’s Beijing Olympics could remain in force after the games are over.“So far this is just a promise like so many other promises that have been made,” the press freedom organisation said. “The authorities need to start respecting the new regulations first. We have monitored 65 cases of foreign journalists being arrested, beaten, prevented from doing a report or threatened since the new rules were supposed to take effect on 1 January. And the day before the minister’s statement, an Associated Press reporter was detained in southern China.”Speaking at a news conference yesterday, Cai said: “No document says that when this new regulation expires on 17 October next year we are going to return to the previous regulations. If practice shows that it will help the international community know better about China and if it is in the interests of China’s efforts of reform and opening up, it is not at all necessary for us to change a good policy.”Jocelyn Ford heads the press freedom committee of the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China, which wants the new regulations made permanent. She told Reporters Without Borders: “The minister’s statement is encouraging. I would be surprised if China went back to tighter restrictions on foreign correspondents. But we are still waiting to see whether the regulations giving foreign correspondents reporting freedom will be more fully respected by Chinese authorities. In 2007 the FCCC received reports of 180 violations of the rules, ranging from surveillance of journalists to detentions.”This is not the first time that a Chinese official has hinted that the former regulations, under which foreign reporters had to request permission every time they wanted to travel within the country or interview Chinese citizens, would not be restored after the Olympics.Wang Wei, a member of the Beijing games organising committee, promised in 2001 that there would be “total press freedom” before and during the games. But there have been many incidents involving foreign reporters this year and the Chinese media are still under the Propaganda Department’s control.The latest incident was the arrest and expulsion on 26 December of an Associated Press reporter from a village in southern China where there have been protests again the confiscation of land for a power plant.

That starts by acknowledging that we cannot rely on an armed police presence for every issue and we need smarter, more effective solutions.”Potential alternatives would include a transit ambassador program that provides staffed presence at Metro facilities and on Metro vehicles as well as social workers, mediators or mental health professionals.Bonin said jurisdictions around the country are considering similar approaches to public safety. Earlier this week, several of Bonin’s colleagues on the Los Angeles City Council called for a new emergency-response model that would have trained specialists, rather than police officers, respond to many types of calls, including those regarding homelessness, mental health and substance abuse issues.Bonin and council members also proposed creating a Los Angeles Office of Violence Prevention.The motion directs Metro to develop the new policies and approaches in consultation with passengers and community members representative of the agency’s ridership.The councilman said it is “crucial” for Metro to make changes, given a history of complaints of racial bias in policy, particularly from younger Black people and Latinos.“For years, Metro has heard that its system of policing was making huge segments of its passengers feel less safe and feel threatened,” he said. “This is our moment to change that.”Bonin is also submitting motions, co-sponsored by Solis, in response to Metro’s decision to suspend passenger service on May 30, stranding many passengers in the middle of a curfew and a separate decision the same day to allow Metro buses to be used to transport detainees who had been arrested for curfew violations or failure to disperse during the protests.The motions call for new rules to prohibit the use of Metro vehicles for detainee transport and new protocols regarding suspensions of service.All three motions are expected to be considered by the full Metro Board of Directors at the board’s June 25 meeting.

COVID-19 cluster traced to Southern California birthday party: Health department

first_imgBill Oxford/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(PASADENA, Calif.) — The Pasadena Public Health Department is reminding residents to stay home after a cluster of COVID-19 cases were traced to a birthday party in the Southern California city.More than five confirmed cases and “many more ill individuals” were tied to the party, the department announced. The party was held in early April, after the state’s stay-at-home order went into effect.The first patient identified with the disease in connection to the outbreak was coughing and not wearing a face mask at the party, the department said. Guests, which included a “large number” of extended family members and friends, also were not wearing face coverings or practicing social distancing, according to the department.“This is an example of how good contact tracing can identify disease clusters and tell us more about the spread of disease in our community,” Dr. Matthew Feaster, an epidemiologist with the Pasadena Public Health Department, said in a statement on Saturday.California’s stay-at-home order went into effect on March 19. On Friday, the order was modified to allow curbside retail. Dr. Ying-Ying Goh, director of the Pasadena Public Health Department, reminded residents in a statement that “gatherings of people who do not live in the same household are still prohibited.”“The virus remains highly contagious,” Goh said. “Social distancing, frequent hand washing and wearing face coverings remain our best defenses against the further spread of COVID-19 in our community.”California has 66,680 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 2,745 deaths, according to the latest figures from the state.

Premier set to close site in Hampshire

first_imgPremier Foods is to close its Hovis distribution centre in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, due to a reduction in volumes of supermarket own-brand bread.The company has entered into consultation with staff and their representatives at the site, which employs around 60 people. A spokesman for Premier told British Baker that the proposed closure was due to a drop in sales of own-label bread.”As well as making the Hovis brand, we also manufacture a range of retailer-branded bread and other bakery products. During 2010, we continued to grow sales of Hovis. But we saw a decline in these other areas. The impact of this has been a reduction in volume, which has prompted a review of our distribution arrangements.”Value sales of own-label products in Hovis’ bakery division fell 22.1% (year ended 31 December 2010). Branded sales rose 1.7%.>>Hovis profits increase as wheat cost pressure riseslast_img read more
