first_imgMonday 16 August 2010 8:43 pm Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Beleaguered energy giant BP?has secured $5bn (£3.2bn) fresh financing by securing debt against its revenues from oil sales for the first time. It is understood the debt will be used to ease BP’s general liquidity position rather than to fund the $20bn escrow account set up to pay for damages caused by its gargantuan oil spill off the coast of Louisiana in the US. BP said the loans created “further flexibility for BP as an alternative form of financing in addition to its more conventional debt financing such as corporate lending”.

The apartment cuts are very nice and allow interesting joints that became a wealth for the project.Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoThe apartment is located on the first floor and develops on two levels around a courtyard. One of the main objectives of this project was to emphasize the presence of the double level by putting in visual communication the two floors with a gallery in the center of the living area that enhances the considerable height of the undivided environment.Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoThe apartment presents on the lower floor, living area, dining room and kitchen with two bedrooms and a bathroom and on the upper floor a gallery which leads to an environment loft with open views on the rest of the house. The living area at the entrance and the gallery and the loft upstairs incorporate an internal courtyard on which many windows of the apartment open. This environment becomes a secondary light source for the apartment and create interesting unexpected visuals. Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoSouthwards the apartment windows overlook the historic center skyline of Siena with some of its most important monuments.Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoThe project is based on the building central wall that crosses the environment from north to south and it’s a lime-colored paste plaster pulled to iron, the wall comes up till the roof with framing in view free from false ceilings that had hidden it for about 200 years. The warping beams and terra cotta tiles in  was  lime treated too.Save this picture!© CentrofotograficoAll the other walls are of white plaster.

The only strong request from client was that all rooms should be oriented to the south. Kai-city, where they have harsh winter, is in Kofu basin, which is located in central part of Japan.Save this picture!© Daici AnoWe realized that people who lives in the area has incomparably more longing than we have in Tokyo. According to site regulations, it is possible to stack all rooms simply vertically and build a 3-story house. But we think it is not a good solution, since it will weaken relations among family who occupies each floor, though the family has two small children. And it must be a coercive volume compared with surrounding two-story houses.Save this picture!PlanThus, we designed the volume as a terraced shape in which all rooms face south though the floors still keep horizontally connections. The volume consists of, from lower level, a living room connecting with front yard, a gallery / refreshing space, and bedrooms. The higher is the more private space. Spaces under the terraced volume are used for back-of-house such as bathroom, toilet and storages.Save this picture!© Daici AnoOur attempt here is not to separate the house into only living room and bedrooms but also to create intermediate spaces where each member of the family enjoy his/her own time and, at the same time, also feel other members’ atmosphere. We think it enables for the young family’s life to be diverse and rich.Save this picture!© Daici AnoSuch space in this house is gallery/refreshing space. We, very consciously, designed the space wider than ordinary corridor to be used for the intermediate space. To emphasize the intent, we designed shelves in zigzag shape to make small dens for children, and steps to be a bench etc.Save this picture!© Daici AnoThe gallery, also connecting with hobby room and terrace, plays a role as a street where all activities in the house/of the family flow in.Save this picture!© Daici AnoStructurally, we stuck to keeping dimension of columns in 100x100mm, though the house has some wide spans. The dimension is almost equal to traditional wooden timber columns which we are very familiar with, in single house. To achieve it, we use solid 100x100mm steel columns where it is required.Save this picture!© Daici AnoProject gallerySee allShow lessAvadh Shilpgram / ArchohmSelected ProjectsSurry Hills Apartment / Josephine Hurley ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Ohno JAPAN House in Kai / MAMM DESIGNlast_img read more

Puerto Rican evacuees face homelessness in Philadelphia

first_imgOver 1,500 evacuees from Hurricane Maria that devastated Puerto Rico last September, most of them housed by relatives in the Fairhill section of Philadelphia, need access to housing resources in Philadelphia. But instead of increased aid, 87 families are losing their Federal Emergency Management Agency housing assistance via Temporary Shelter Assistance programs on Feb. 14 and are in danger of becoming homeless.A rally across from City Hall on Feb. 12 featured a mother and her three sons, as well as other families threatened with homelessness in a few days unless city and state officials extend the TSA programs. Speakers called on Gov. Tom Wolf and Mayor Jim Kenney to provide full funding for long-term housing for every Puerto Rican evacuee. They also demanded a professional case worker/advocate to help evacuees navigate the overly complex and faulty FEMA process and find health care resources.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

More anti-media hostility and violence at France’s “Gilets Jaunes” protests

first_imgNews FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Freedom of expressionPhotoreportageViolence Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Not only did the seventh major Yellow Vest protest of 2018, on 29 December, called “Act VII,” see more of this violence, but several hundred demonstrators also gathered outside the headquarters of France Télévisions and the 24-hour TV news channel BFMTV in Paris, chanting such slogans as “BFM fake news” and “Collaborator journalists!”Several reporters and photographers were the targets of verbal and physical violence while covering the protests in various parts of the country on 29 December. Others had their equipment seized.Simon Louvet, a reporter for the regional news website 76actu, was attacked by police while filming a heavy-handed arrest in Rouen. He reported on Twitter that a policeman “aimed his flashball gun at me” and that a policewoman “struck my left hand with her baton.” Publihebdos, the media group to which 76actu belongs, issued a statement condemning this “unacceptable act of police violence.”Thibaud Moritz, a photographer for the newspaper Libération, reported that a policeman fired a flashball at him while he was covering a protest in Bordeaux. Jérémie Lusseau, a photographer with the Hans Lucas Studio, said he was directly threatened by police while covering a violent arrest. “You’ll be next, I’ll smash your mouth and your camera,” one of the policemen reportedly told him.At a traffic circle in Normandy earlier in the week, two young journalists were prevented from filming by police, who seized their equipment. When they went to a nearby police station to recover the equipment, they witnessed a heavy-handed arrest which they began filming until forced to delete their footage.They then decided to go to a different police station to file a complaint against these police officers. The first police station they went to refused to register the complaint, but the second did.“We condemn these latest verbal and physical attacks against journalists, by both demonstrators and police,” RSF said. “Journalists are caught between the violence of some Yellow Vest protesters and police violence, although they are just doing their job to report the news. If these protests continue, journalists must be able to continue covering them without fearing for their safety.”In some cases, reporters were prevented from continuing to cover a protest by the protesters themselves. This is happened to journalists from CNEWS and France Bleu Gironde, who were forcibly expelled from a Yellow Vest demonstration in Bordeaux by some of the protesters.Unhappy with the way some media outlets have covered the protests, around 20 protesters blocked the entrance to the Sipa Ouest-France media group’s printing press near Nantes on 26 December. By blocking the departure of newspaper delivery trucks, they prevented the distribution of more than 180,000 copies of the Ouest-France, Presse Océan and Courrier de l’Ouest newspapers. The media group deplored “this unprecedented action that poses a serious threat to press freedom and democracy.”Threats on social networks have also grown. Since misreporting the extent of destruction by protesters during a live report from the Champs-Elysées in Paris in November, for which he later apologized, BFMTV reporter Barthélémy Bolo has been the target of an online harassment campaign and has been receiving insults and death threats. He has filed a complaint about the threats.France is ranked 33rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. to go further News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Follow the news on France June 2, 2021 Find out more January 3, 2019 More anti-media hostility and violence at France’s “Gilets Jaunes” protests Newscenter_img May 10, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Organisation © ZAKARIA ABDELKAFI / AFP News RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Freedom of expressionPhotoreportageViolence June 4, 2021 Find out more RSF_en As the members of France’s “Gilets Jaunes” (Yellow Vest) protest movement discuss how or whether they will continue their anti-government protests in 2019, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for an end to the violence against journalists by both demonstrators and police that has accompanied these protests ever since they began in mid-November. last_img read more
