The situation of the plot at number 16 rue Riquet is exceptional: largely visible from the corner of Avenue de Flandre, it is very close to the Bassin de la Villette and has a length of 36 meters of frontage facing south with a depth varying from 18 to 22 meters. The building at the corner of Avenue de Flandre constructed at right angles as well as the small buildings with adjoining ground floors gives to the western corner of the plot a very valuable “faubourg” touch. On the other side of the same street, the large gable of number 14 allows the new building to be built upon. The whole of these characteristics bear a rich urban potential. Our project aims at making the most of it in the setting up and design of the new building.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe private owner has a vacant land of 700 square meters located rue Riquet in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, near le Bassin de la Villette and Avenue de Flandre. He has decided to build 28 free rental units with a crèche on the ground floor (run by the association “ ABC childcare”). Some options have come out as obvious: – To develop an environmental approach in the first stage of the design, with the integration of engineering consultants specialized in “High Environmental Quality”, RFR Elements, – To make the most of the linear façade – To gradually move west back from the neighbouring building and create views for the new building. – To create a garden at the bottom of the plot and a way to lead to the block of flats from the rear on the north side.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyWhat the operation aims at: The owner together with his project delegate AURIS has set the following targets: – To get a building project both robust and lasting with an architectural signature. – To optimize the building capacity in order to receive the bonus floor area ratio by getting the BBC Label with HQE certification.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyTo create a building matching the values of project management particularly on the following aspects: aesthetics and urban integration, quality and sustainability. To respect the following constraints: – To create business premises on the ground floor to become later a crèche run by an association. – To optimize the design of the building in order to reduce operating costs and thus the costs charged to tenants. – To optimize maintenance costs. – To reduce energy consumption. – To offer a balanced distribution of typologies.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThrough-ventilation in summer, very appropriate to refresh the flats at night and thus lob the peaks of heat. To secure a thermally efficient project, losses should be minimized. The thermal performance of the envelope has been obtained by the systematic elimination of thermal bridges. That has been done by: – The choice of insulation from the outside (material stands before the insulation slab nose). – The use of thermal break on the south side to detach the thermal structure at the front of the inner façade (unheated part) from the inside of the flats. – The choice of a console on the north side meant to carry for a limited period the floor of the corridors.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe south façade is organized on a principle of loggia. The thermal limit is located at the level of the 30 % opaque and double- glazed very efficient inner façade. The exterior sliding window pane is a simple, slightly printed glazing for the bedrooms and transparent for the living-rooms. In winter and at the beginning/ end of the mid- season that is to say during the heating period which usually runs from mid- October to mid – March, these loggias play the role of a buffer space whose function from a thermal point of view can be developed in three ways: – function of protection of the inner glazing against the effects of the wind, which result in increased heat transfer and infiltration of cold air, -function of heat buildup when the weather is sunny and the loggia exposed to direct sunlight, the temperature is then higher than the outside temperature, – function of preheating the fresh air, theair intakes for mechanical ventilation being placed outsidethe rooms and lounges thus the loggia (appropriate as far as energy and thermal comfort are concerned).Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyAs winning project of the call for low consumption building projects (BBC) from ADEME 2010, and having obtained the certification Cerqual H & E profil A,we have offered a philosophy of clean environmental approach. The project is part of a plot of high quality characterized by a significant linear facing south. Before the sketch work was carried out, the design team has focused on environmental issues so in our answer the issue is intimately linked to the architectural offer and rooted in fundamental elements of the quality of life.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyAs far as the ground plan and spatial organization are concerned, the qualities of the project are obvious: all flats are through and the bathrooms get daylight. What’s more, each flat opens widely on to the south side to capture the most of the sun. The inner environmental qualities of our project consist in: – A supply of free sun on the southern façade. – Possibility of a through ventilation in summer, appropriate to refresh the flats at night and thus lob the peaks of heat. – These qualities have a large impact on comfort but also on energy consumption: less heating needed in winter and in summer, no discomfort which would likely lead to the use of side air conditioners, disastrous in terms of energy and environment. We should also mention as highly appropriate from an environmental point of view the fact that the parts in common are mostly on the outside of the buildings: this will reduce heating consumption, artificial lighting and thus the costs.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyMaking the most of the south façade can be achieved through the design of a thermal façade together with private outdoor spaces that increase the comfort and quality of the flats. The loggia is a buffer zone consisting in two sliding glass walls that can open and close according to the variations of temperature. This concept provides several functions: – A function of protection: heat losses are reduced. – A supply of free heating by the sun: that heat is absorbed by the floor and the walls and released at night. – Given the 1.700 hours of sunshine per year, this supply is particularly significant in terms of energy savings. – The function of preheating fresh air, provided by controled mechanical ventilation.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThis « thick » façade consisting in loggias running outside along the living- rooms and the bedrooms provide a nice patio area. The depth of these loggias allows tables and chairs to enjoy the sun. As extensions of the living-rooms some of the loggias have clear glass bays on two levels. This extra space can be opened or closed depending on the sunlight. It is both a balcony and a winter garden. As extensions of the bedrooms loggias have clear glass bays in the foreground and screened glass bays over the street. This treatmentfiltersviews and sunshine for more privacy.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyNeighbouring buildings at number 18 rue Riquet have an identity of their own: they form a complex with a very “faubourg” touch in the type and height of the buildings and the imbrication of the plots. It appeared to us that in many ways there was a strong connection between the project and this complex: – There must be respect in the way the buildings are linked, the project must not crush the existing buildings nor pour too much shade on them – The project must offer flats widely opened on the outside with views to the west (good position, facing multiple directions). – Sunlight should reach the garden at the bottom of the plot.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyFor all these reasons we opted for gradually decreasing terraces on its western side. The terraces would run from west to east but also from south to north which allows light to reach the bottom of the plot. The choice of terraces and vegetal roofs make it even more pleasant for future residents and the neighourhood. Consistent with Parisian architecture and in accordance with the Local Urbanism Plan, the project suggests marking a base to ground floor by the building of a glass façade running all the imposed 3.20 meters of height. The two last levels stand back in conformity with the templates, so that the attic stands out. The yard created at the north east corner of the plot as an extension of the existing adjoining courtyards is there to create crossing flats.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyA large courtyard with a real garden for the crèche on the groundfloor. Keeping in mind the fact that the flat is located in a plant growing area, the two of them form a large open space of pleasant proportions: 150 square meters. This creates a vegetal strip of land which can be enjoyed not only from the ground floor but also from the corridors of distribution and the west terraces. These buildings have an open outlook and leave perspectives free.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyAnd finally this garden is a valuable space for the buildings close to the imbricate plots. As an extension of an already existing adjoining yard, a yard in the corner allows the creation of crossing flats and on a city scale to keep open spaces designed to let the housing block breathe. On the last floor, the roof terrace of the studio R 5 is a common terrace, sheltered from the street and multi-orientated. Each flat except for the studios overlooking the courtyard owns a private outdoor loggia. The western corner flats even have a terrace facing southwest.Save this picture!© Luc BoeglyThe very thin (8 meters inside the flats) building allows the creation of all-through and bright buildings on the following lay-out: – Halls, kitchens and bathrooms facing north. – Living- rooms and bedrooms with loggias facing south. All flats are at least all- through flats. Those located on the western side face south-west and north. There is a flat on the ground floor with a 35 square meter terrace facing west. Except for the two rooms overlooking the courtyard, they all have private outdoor space. The ceilings are 2.50 meter high and on the west side living- rooms have partial double heights( + 1 meter). Typologies follow that pattern: seven studios, eight one-bedroom flats, five three-room flats, eight four-room flats.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessTurkish Court Rules in Favor of Gezi Park ProtestersArchitecture NewsArchitecture Film Festival Rotterdam 2013EventProject locationAddress:15 Rue Riquet, 75019 Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

RSF calls for abolition of press law and release of three jailed journalists

RSF asks prime minister Meles Zenawi to release them and to abolish the press law. to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) called today on the Ethiopian government to immediately release three recently-arrested journalists, abolish the 1992 press law and amend the criminal code to ease its “harsh restrictions” on the media. RSF was glad the last journalist in prison in Ethiopia was freed early last month, but the new arrests showed press freedom was “never to be taken for granted and that great vigilance is required,” RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to prime minister Meles Zenawi, who is on RSF’s worldwide list of 38 “predators of press freedom.” One of the three journalists, Lubaba Said, former editor of the newspaper Tarik, was jailed for a year by the federal high court on 3 April for “inventing news likely to demoralise the army and make people anxious” and was taken to the main prison in the capital. A few years ago, she published two articles reporting that members of the presidential guard had defected. On 20 March, Melese Shine, editor of the newspaper Ethiop, was jailed by the federal high court for publishing an interview with a colonel in the former imperial army now in exile in Sudan and also for writing a profile of the prime minister based on statements by former aides. Shine was accused of “libelling the head of government” and “interviewing a bandit claiming to be leader of an illegal organisation.” He is being held at the Woreda police station in Addis Ababa and is being asked to pay bail of 10,000 birr (€1,350). Gizaw Taye Wordofa, editor of the weekly Lamrot, was arrested on 15 March for publishing “immoral and indecent material” by distributing stories about sex. About a dozen other journalists are currently being prosecuted or are free on bail, according to the Ethiopian Free Press Journalists’ Association (EFJA).

Climate of hostility towards news media

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Finally, the daily newspaper Takvim splashed with a fake interview with well-known CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour on its front-page on 18 June. Headlined “Dirty confession,” the bogus interview had Amanpour confess that CNN had slanted its coverage of Turkey’s protests “for money” and “under pressure from international lobbies.”The Association of Turkish Journalists (TGC) condemned the Takvim story as a “grave violation of professional ethics.” Because many leading Turkish media censored their coverage of the protests during the first few days, Turkish viewers turned to CNN and other international TV stations, as a result of which these stations have repeatedly been attacked by the government.Social networks targeted Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the interior minister’s 17 June announcement of new measures to combat “false or provocative” information on online social networks – which have been massively used by protesters in the past few weeks – and will monitor’s the government’s actions closely.The minister said freedom of expression would not be restricted by any new law, but Reporters Without Borders is worried by the government’s tendency to criminalize protesting. Inciting violence is already punished by existing legislation that applies to online social networks.The protest movement has lost steam since the police used force to clear Gezi Park on the evening of 15 June but new forms of protest are being tried out, including standing still while saying nothing in public places, as a peaceful protest, and the organization of “forums” in public parks throughout the country.Sporadic clashes with the police are still occurring, such as in the western Anatolian city of Eskisehir on the 13th of June. News Organisation Reporters Without Borders is again very worried by the repressive nature of the Erdogan government’s response to Turkey’s three-week-old protest movement. Ever since the police stormed Istanbul’s Gezi Park on 15 June, the government has been making very aggressive statements about the movement’s organizers and supporters, and those who cover it.They are accused of acting at the behest of “external actors” or in collusion with “terrorist organizations” with the aim of destabilizing the country. The police operations currently under way suggest that these implicit threats are being translated into action.“The protest movement’s criminalization is being accompanied by an unacceptable and dangerous climate of hostility towards the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for immediate explanations of the arrests of journalists in recent days. Raids on journalists’ homes and news media violate the principle of the protection of sources, the cornerstone of media freedom. “Inciting violence and hatred must of course be punished but the government’s current rhetoric suggests that this need is being used as a pretext for political revenge against outspoken journalists. The Turkish authorities must stop brandishing conspiracy theories and stop attacking media and social networks.”Raids against far-left journalistsThe Istanbul anti-terrorism police raided dozens of addresses in the early hours of 18 June, including the headquarters of the Etkin News Agency (ETHA), with the official aim of conducting an operation against the outlawed Marxist-Leninist Communist Party (MLKP).The homes of Sedat Senoglu, publication coordinator of the far-left weekly Atilim, and Selvi Cosar, an employee of Istanbul-based Özgür Radyo, were among those searched. These two journalists are still in police custody.The homes of ETHA editor-in-chief Derya Okatan and ETHA editor Arzu Demir were also targeted. According to ETHA, these two women journalists are currently under a form of house arrest but it is not known if they are going to be taken into police custody. ETHA said the police had a list of 90 persons suspected of colluding with terrorist groups.Interior minister Muammer Güler said 62 people were arrested in Istanbul and 23 in Ankara in the course of this police operation. The raids were said to be part of a year-old investigation into MLKP by the Ankara prosecutor responsible for terrorism cases. But those arrested are reportedly also suspected of damaging public property or inciting violence against the police in “Occupy Gezi” protests. More police abuses, manipulation of informationTurkish and foreign journalists continue to be the victims of police violence, especially in Istanbul, where the anti-government protests began on 31 May. Police attacked Kemal Sogukdere and Alper Cakici, two cameramen with Qatar-based Al-Jazeera TV, near Taksim Square on 17 June.Gökhan Biçici, a reporter for pro-Kurdish IMC TV, and Emre Fidan, a cameraman with the nationalist TV station Ulusal Kanal, were released on 18 June, two days after being forcibly arrested near Gezi Park. Today’s Zaman journalist Rumeysa Kiger was held for several hours on 18 June after being arrested as she crossed Taksim Square to got to a meeting.

No cabinet position means Mid West will need special attention

first_imgBusinessLimerickNewsNo cabinet position means Mid West will need special attentionBy Staff Reporter – July 12, 2020 115 Print Facebook WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLIMERICK ChamberLimerick Post Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash THE new Government has been asked to give specific attention to the Mid West region in light of the storm clouds gathering over the local economy.Commenting on the absence of representation from the Mid-West in the second successive cabinet, Limerick Chamber President David Jeffreys said that the government will have no option but to give special attention to the region.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Considering the population of Limerick and the wider Mid-West, we are naturally very disappointed and concerned that we did not get a senior cabinet ministry for the second time in succession. Limerick has been working hard to recover from the impact of the 2008 financial crisis, the departure of large-scale computer manufacturing and the damaging legacy of having two local authorities,” Mr Jeffreys explained.“We will give the newly formed government the benefit of the doubt that the lack of a senior minister will not deny the region in any way. They must recognise that large swathes of the local economy here is at tipping point.“The impact of Covid-19 is yet to be fully realised, with the worst likely to be ahead of us. So far, we have had a complete collapse of international tourism in the region, Shannon Airport has been floored by the impact and, as a result, the lack of corporate travel is having a double impact on our hotels.“Our city centre is already struggling for footfall and major losses have been endured over recent weeks and months with the closure of big brand retailers such as Debenhams in April and now Argos in June, without even mentioning the numerous independent retailers who have already closed their doors.“Most SMEs are severely challenged, being heavily dependent on the current government subsidies and it’s reasonable to assume that foreign direct investment will be severely hampered. Key elements of the agri sector are in crisis and then we have Brexit coming down the line.“Now is a time for Limerick and theMid-West to get specific attention and I cannot see how this government would not recognise that. We look forward to a constructive, positive working relationship with its members here as we seek to ensure that we get the attention we deserve. We cannot accept anything else,” Mr Jeffreys declared.Chief executive Dee Ryan said the Chamber will not be found wanting if the worst fears around the cabinet make-up were to be realised.“There are key red line issues for us that this government has to act on and they include City centre revitalisation, support for Shannon Airport, maximising the enormous opportunity from the natural deep waters of the estuary, developing the M20 as a priority, as well as the link road to Foynes and the Northern Distributor Road.“All of these will deliver an economic dividend to the city, region and state so we see no reason whatsoever why they would not happen,” Ms Ryan added.center_img Previous articleNew Limerick Tourism Taskforce plans for development of sectorNext articleVictory for Gortadroma residents as gasification project abandoned Staff Reporter Twitter Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Email Advertisement Linkedin Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more

Simone Biles carries US women’s gymnastics team to record-tying fifth world championship

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailCristiNistor/iStock(NEW YORK) — If you look up “fierce” in the dictionary, you’re likely to find the U.S. women’s gymnastics team. Same goes for five-peat.For the fifth consecutive time, the team came out on top at the world championships — finishing almost six full points ahead of second-place Russia.Despite some setbacks — like 16-year-old Sunisa Lee’s fall off the balance beam and 16-year-old Grace McCallum’s pirouette error on the uneven bars — Team USA was led to gold by 22-year-old Simone Biles.The four-time Olympic gold medalist proved to still be unstoppable with her athleticism and skill.Over the weekend, Biles stuck not one but two signature jaw-dropping moves: the double-double dismount on the balance beam and triple-double on the floor.Both are performances that people are still buzzing about and that the International Gymnast Federation even found controversial for the added safety risk.Nevertheless, the now most-decorated female gymnast in history will have one of the two moves named after her. She holds an astounding 15 world championship gold medals, and 21 world championship medals total.The fifth consecutive world championship win ties a record set by Romania from 1994 to 2001.Biles will defend her women’s individual all-around title on Thursday.And the Tokyo Olympics are now just 10 months away.

Australian Open tennis player collapses in coughing fit due to thick smoke from wildfires

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBrycia James/iStock(MELBOURNE, Australia) — A professional tennis player competing in an Australian Open qualifying match in Melbourne was forced to retire after she suffered a coughing fit from thick smoke caused by the catastrophic bushfires.Dalila Jakupovic of Slovenia fell to her knees Tuesday when she was about to serve during the Round 1 Open qualifying match.“I was really scared that I would collapse,” Jakupovic told ESPN. “That’s why I went onto the floor, because I couldn’t walk anymore.”Jakupovic, currently ranked 180th in the world, was leading against Switzerland’s Stefanie Voegele when she had to retire. Awful scenes in Melbourne.Dalila Jakupovic has abandoned her #AusOpen qualifying match after suffering a coughing fit while playing in thick smoke caused by the #AustralianFires.— ESPN Australia & NZ (@ESPNAusNZ) January 14, 2020 The logistics of the tournament became a cause of concern as bushfires continue to rage on in Australia, including in the state of Victoria, where Melbourne is located.This season’s fires, which began about four months earlier than normal, have been especially devastating for the country. Over 15 million acres have burned, at least 25 people have died and an ecologist at The University of Sydney estimates that more than one billion animals have perished.Jakupovic has now joined a chorus of players speaking out against playing in the conditions.“It’s not healthy for us,” Jakupovic told ESPN. “I was surprised. I thought we would not be playing today, but we don’t have much choice.”Elina Svitolina, a Ukranian tennis player, tweeted, “Why do we need to wait for something bad to happen to do an action [sic].”Her tweet included a photo of the AQI (air quality index) at 200 Tuesday afternoon local time, well above the 0 to 50 standards for a good AQI and considered very unhealthy. Beau Lund The AQI in Melbourne as of early Wednesday local time was listed as 167 and categorized as unhealthy, according to the World Air Quality Index.Australian Open organizers did not immediately respond to ABC News for comment, but a tweet from its official account read that the qualifying matches on Tuesday were pushed back an hour and practice was temporarily suspended “due to poor air quality.”“As always the health and safety of our players, our staff and our fans is our priority,” the tweet read.Last week, the Australian Open spoke in favor of its stadiums, saying there the tournament has three-roofed stadiums and eight indoor courts.“In the unlikely case of extreme smoke conditions, the roofs will be closed on the 3 stadium courts and play will continue in their air-conditioned, air-filtered environment,” according to a tweet Australian Open’s official Twitter account.“If smoke infiltrates the 3 stadium courts,” the tweet read, “the air conditioning system will filter it out.”The smoke from the fires has not only affected Australia, but New Zealand and South America, according to NASA researchers who have been tracking the smoke’s path.It crossed South America, about halfway around the Earth, turning the skies hazy and causing colorful sunrises and sunsets, according to the space agency.NASA predicted that the smoke would make at least one full circuit around the globe, making its return to Australia skies.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

USA: Dependable Seizes at Sea Half a Ton of Cocaine

first_img View post tag: Mln View post tag: Offloads View post tag: USD Coast Guard Cutter Dependable offloaded 1,210 pounds of cocaine with an estimated wholesale value of more than $14 million to Homeland Security Investigations in Key West, Fla., Tuesday.An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) Jacksonville, Fla., deployed with the Coast Guard Cutter Forward, noticed two suspicious vessels detected in the vicinity of Guanaja, Honduras Dec. 6, 2012.The cutter Forward and Coast Guard Cutter Confidence were diverted and launched their two smallboat crews to stop and board the go-fast vessels.During the pursuit, the aircraft crew observed a go-fast crewmember jettison multiple packages in the water. The HITRON helicopter employed warning shots and disabling fire to compel the vessels to stop. The Forward and Confidence smallboat crews subsequently arrived on scene, boarded the two vessels, and detained eight suspected smugglers.The 22 packages were recovered from the water and later tested positive for cocaine.“Seizures at sea are the most efficient and cost-effective way to keep contraband off the streets of America,” said Cmdr. Timothy Cronin, 7th Coast Guard District assistant chief of enforcement. “The crews of the Forward and Confidence performed admirable during these interdictions. As part of Operation Martillo, they successfully denied drug smugglers from bringing illegal narcotics into the Central American transhipment route and ultimately prevented these drugs from crossing national borders.”Operation Martillo is a joint, interagency, international operation designed to deny transnational criminal organizations air, land and maritime use of Central American transshipment routes for illicit drugs, weapons and cash.Medium endurance cutters like the Confidence, Forward and Dependable are slated for replacement by new Offshore Patrol Cutters. The new OPCs will operate more than 50 miles from land, carrying out the Coast Guard’s maritime security and safety activities in support of national interests. The OPC will be an economical, multi-mission ship, providing pursuit boat and helicopter capabilities and interoperability with other military and federal partners, superior to the cutters they replace. Equipped with modern sensors, the OPCs will provide the enhanced surveillance necessary to detect threats far from U.S. shores and meet the demands of the Coast Guard’s homeland security, search and rescue, law enforcement and other vital missions.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 23, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: usa USA: Dependable Seizes at Sea Half a Ton of Cocaine View post tag: Navy January 23, 2013 View post tag: Defense View post tag: Cocaine View post tag: million View post tag: USCG View post tag: Naval View post tag: about View post tag: worth View post tag: Dependable Share this article View post tag: News by topic View post tag: $14 View post tag: Defence Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Dependable Seizes at Sea Half a Ton of Cocaine last_img read more
