Save this picture!© Hoachlander-Davis PhotographySaving the bones of the front to back split-level, the architects sought to use this basic organization to an advantage: exploiting the street side / water side split personality of the residence, but acknowledging that the fun is in the modern connection of the two worlds. The landscaped street face of the house, containing the entry, office, garage and guest rooms, recalls the reserve and scale of the original house. The rear of the house, with the living and dining rooms, and master suite, explodes into the woods, opening views to the steep hill that plummets to the water below. The rear terrace, an outdoor room defined by the “L” of the house, leans out into the maples beyond. The master bedroom is the “tree house” of the new rear addition, pushing the expansion of the house vertically. But it’s the visual and organizational connections between the split levels of the house and out to the landscapes beyond – opening up the spaces to one another, crossing the boundaries between front and back, inside and outside, above and below, that makes the whole out of the parts.Project gallerySee allShow lessChangsha Songya Hu Mixed-Use Project / Steinberg ArchitectsArticlesTodd Saunders Lecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in MunichArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/200220/lakefront-residence-moore-architects Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/200220/lakefront-residence-moore-architects Clipboard Houses CopyHouses•United Stateslast_img read more

As regards the earthquake, the government has ordered sites managers to make sure that reports contain no mention of the Dalai Lama and the solidarity campaigns organised by Tibetans. Receive email alerts The Chinese authorities are also preventing the Hong Kong-based newspaper Apple Daily from going to Shanghai to cover the exhibition. In 2008, the authorities initially refused to give the newspaper permission to cover the Beijing Olympic Games before finally relenting. News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison News News These directives have coincided with the arrest of Tibetan writer and scholar Tagyal, who is better known by the pen-name of Shogdung, for signing an open letter about the earthquake. Local police in Xining, in the western province of Qinghai, arrested him during a search of the offices of the Qinghai Nationalities publishing house on 23 April. The police also seized computers from his home that evening. His wife said they later came back to give her a copy of the order for his arrest. RSF_en Signed by Tagyal and other Tibetan intellectuals and released on 17 April, the open letter offered condolences to the families of the victims and criticised certain aspects of the Chinese government’s handling of the relief efforts. The authorities had prevented Tagyal from visiting the quake-hit areas.

Seventy-second birthday of Win Tin

first_img On 12 March 2002, journalist and member of the National League for Democracy, U Win Tin, is celebrating his 72nd birthday in detention. According to information obtained from Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, the UN special rapporteur for Myanmar, and from former Burmese political prisoners, Win Tin is currently being treated at Rangoon General Hospital, where he was operated on for a hernia. He will probably soon be returned to Insein prison. Even though his overall condition is stable, a return to prison could endanger his life. Win Tin has suffered, during the 13 years of his detention, from high blood pressure, diabetes and spondylitis (inflammation of the vertebra).Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières – RSF) and the Burma Media Association (BMA) demand that Win Tin be released for medical reasons. The two organizations fear that a return to prison will worsen Win Tin’s fragile health, and hope that the Burmese authorities will show compassion to a sick, 72-year-old man who has spent the past 13 years of his life in prison. Conditions in Insein prison, the country’s main prison where several political prisoners have died in recent years, are not at all adapted to Win Tin’s poor health.On Win Tin’s 72nd birthday, RSF has sent the Burmese embassy in France a petition in favor of his release, signed by more than 2,500 people. RSF will discuss Win Tin’s situation during an oral presentation to the next session of the UN Human Rights Commission. In addition, dozens of European media have sponsored Win Tin, and will raise this issue on his birthday.Former editor-in-chief of the daily Hanthawathi, vice-president of the Burmese Writers’ Association, and member of the board of directors of the National League for Democracy (NLD; the opposition party), Win Tin has been imprisoned since 4 July 1989. He was sentenced to a total of twenty years for sending to the UN special rapporteur for Burma a document on prison conditions and mistreatment in Insein prison. As far as RSF is aware, at least 17 media professionals are still jailed in Burma. RSF is especially worried about journalist Sein Hla Oo, whose sentence ended in August 2001, but who has still not been released.

Authorities asked to explain journalist’s arrest and closure of his radio station

first_img NigerAfrica Journalist Moussa Tchangari, who heads a civil society group, has been imprisoned in Niamey and his radio station has been closed. On the day of his arrest, he had given an interview to Radio France Internationale (RFI) explaining the reasons for the protests taking place in Niger against the cost of living. NigerAfrica Niger: Two journalists arrested in disturbing setback for press freedom May 11, 2021 Find out more to go further July 16, 2020 Find out more March 31, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities asked to explain journalist’s arrest and closure of his radio station RSF_en News The conviction of Niger newspaper editor Moussa Aksar is an attack on investigative journalism Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today demanded an explanation from Niger’s authorities for the arrest of Moussa Tchangari, the editor of the weekly Alternative, and for the closure of the radio station he runs, Alternative FM. Tchangari, who also heads a civil society and political action group called the Democratic Coordination of Niger Civil Society (CDSCN), is one of five civil society activists who have been detained in the past week and charged with “plotting against state security, causing unarmed gatherings (and) forming an undeclared organization.”Shortly before Tchangari’s arrest on 26 March, he gave an interview to Radio France Internationale (RFI) about the current wave of protests against consumer prices increases. Reporters Without Borders has listened to a recording of this interview and can affirm that in no way was he inciting a riot or revolt.”If Moussa Tchangari was arrested for statements he made during this interview, then the charges against him are totally unjustified,” the press freedom organization said. “If he was detained for another reason, given the extreme tension currently prevailing in Niger, the government must say so clearly.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Either way, it is unacceptable that the police closed down a radio station in violation of the procedures laid down by the Higher Council for Communication (CSC). We urge President Mamadou Tandja not to panic and to act with more transparency in order to reassure the public.”There have been mounting protests against price increases since 15 March. Tchangari’s group, the CDSCN, is a member of the Coalition against the High Cost of Living, of which he and four other leaders were arrested between 25 and 27 March. They are Nouhou Arzika, the coalition’s president; Morou Amadou, the president of Crusade, a human rights group; Moustapha Kadi, the president of SOS Kandadji, a consumer defence group; and Kassoum Issa, another CDSCN activist.The charges against Tchangari and the other four were announced when they were brought before an investigating judge in Niamey on 29 March. It was earlier the same day, at around 5 a.m., that plain-clothes police closed Alternative FM until further notice, on the orders of the Niamey public prosecutor.The day before this wave of arrests began, the coalition had decided to call a general strike beginning on 5 April. The same day, the CDSCN had called a peaceful march and rally for 31 March to demand the repeal of the 2005 budget act that introduced a 19 per cent value added tax (VAT). The coalition blames the budget for a surge in prices, especially in the prices of staples.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Tchangari’s lawyer said his client was charged with violating state security for “calling for collective prayers for God to bless Niger and protect his opposing enemies.” The lawyer denied that Tchangari ever said this and insisted that the charges were completely unsubstantiated.As a journalist, Tchangari is known for criticizing the government and he was already arrested several times between 1997 and 2003 in connection with his work.

From Pasadena to the Holy Land: Students at Pasadena’s Providence Christian College Spend May Term in Israel

first_img Business News 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Students, faculty and staff in Israel on a previous Immersion in 2012. Photo courtesy Providence Christian CollegeThis May, students from Providence Christian College in Pasadena will be traveling for May Term abroad to see with their own eyes what they have been studying in their Biblical and Theological Studies classes since January – the Holy Land.The majority of the 13 students are from Southern California but will make Israel their classroom from May 9 through May 24. Their journey of discovery will take them from the modern cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa to Jerusalem, the ancient Roman city of Caesarea to important biblical villages around the Sea of Galilee, and on a Dead Sea excursion to Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found.The trip is part of Providence’s signature Avodah program. Usually the program focuses on different cultures and cultural expressions in and around Los Angeles or Mexico. Once a year though, students go on an immersion study out of the country. Past trips have included Cambodia, Jamaica, Belize and Italy.As the only Reformed Christian College on the west coast, Biblical and Theological Studies Professor Dr. Scott Swanson believes these hands-on experiences at Providence are vital to fulfilling the college’s mission and equipping students to live and serve effectively in a diverse world.“The Bible cannot be understood without understanding the Land of the Bible. And the more one grasps the historical geography of the Land, the more one can enter into its story and message. Bible places and landscapes come alive and archaeological study recreates and confirms much of what we know of biblical history,” explains Dr. Swanson.“But the Bible also compels us to understand and care about the peoples of the Land and their history, society, and current problems. And so we learn about the modern state of Israel and its inhabitants, both Jewish people and Arab Palestinian people. We listen to dueling perspectives on the conflict, and attempt to think through the issues according to biblical principles of justice and mercy.”According to Max Belz, Director of Experiential Learning at Providence, it’s about more than class credits as students make memories when their curriculum comes alive in churches, holy sites, museums, parks, and archeological digs.“A desired outcome is that the students will also learn to engage the competing perspectives on the modern day conflicts of the region with understanding and compassion,” adds Belz.During the trip, the students are required to keep a daily travel journal as part of their final grade to focus and elaborate on the places and people they meet along with the higher purpose.According to Belz, the students will experience ancient history as they drive through the desert to Megiddo in the Jezreel Valley, visit the Temple Mount and City of David excavations in Jerusalem, and attend a Shabbat service at the Jerusalem Assembly. The students will venture from the Valley of Elah where David defeated Goliath to Mt. Bental, the highest point in the Golan Heights with a view into Syria.Dr. Swanson added that his preferred outcome is for the students to appreciate the diverse culture and peoples of the land and “accept responsibility to pray for the welfare of these peoples and to work for justice, mercy, and peace there even as we pursue our callings here.”Providence Christian College, founded in 2005, is the only Reformed Christian College on the west coast. Located in Pasadena, the mission of Providence is to equip students to be firmly grounded in biblical truth; thoroughly educated in the liberal arts; and fully engaged in their church, their community, and the world for the glory of God and for service to humanity. Through Faith Guided Learning™, Providence Christian College offers a broad liberal arts education with more than a dozen career concentrations all experienced in a close knit, residential community with small class sizes averaging 13 students to each professor.

In this 59-page amended complaint, Ocwen said that Fidelity National benefitted from the additional revenue that FIS procured by fraud through its ownership of FIS.”Since Ocwen’s original filing in May 2017, discovery, in this case, has established that Fidelity Information Services’ (FIS) misconduct was much worse and more pervasive than Ocwen ever imagined.  Our amended complaint adds new fraud claims and names FIS’s parent company, publicly-traded Fidelity National Information Services (Fidelity National), as a defendant,” John Lovallo, Ocwen’s spokesperson told DS News. “Fidelity National not only knew about the fraud, but facilitated it to increase their financial performance. Ocwen will continue to vigorously pursue all remedies stemming from FIS’s fraudulent and abusive billing scheme to hold FIS and Fidelity National fully accountable for their actions.”According to the new complaint that was filed by Ocwen with the California Superior Court recently, though FIS had told the DBO that it would review 50,000 loan files over a two-year engagement, it utilized the $44.8 million charged for the audit in 11 months while reviewing less than 50,000 loan files and then asking for an additional sum to re-work on those files.Giving further proof to its original complaint of inflated billing by citing internal FIS documents, the new complaint alleged that “FIS did not have any of the staff, technology, or state/fed resources as represented to the DBO.” The complaint, citing an FIS executive, states that when FIS made these statements and were awarded the project, the company did not have any of these things in place.Additionally, the FIS executive allegedly said that the company had no checklists. “There were instead a limited number of generic . . . items . . . and no research materials or resources that were state-specific at all for California.”  And, “No technology tool existed for mortgage loan servicing review and examinations,” Ocwen said in its fresh complaint.The original lawsuit had claimed that whenever Ocwen questioned the legitimacy of FIS’ invoices or “confronted the company about their increasing enormity, FIS reiterated its misrepresentations that the hours and expenses reflected on the invoices were legitimately worked and incurred.”However, the new complaint cites that FIS fraudulently billed Ocwen for extensive re-work resulting in “massive work and time charges that had zero value.” The complaint, which cites written admissions by FIS senior managers says that FIS hid both the original faulty work and the subsequent re-work and charged Ocwen for both.The complaint documents admissions from FIS executives that the company lied to the DBO about its “purported Ocwen findings and its billing practices.Click here to read more about this case.  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more
