One of the goals in this project was that the residence established a true connection with nature. There was great emphasis on landscaping, large openings that gave the impression that the gardens surrounding the building invade the interior. The unusual slope of the living room window, overlooking canal water on the edge of the house, the glazed openings of the entrance hall and the cutout on the apparent concrete slab of the entrance, invite the contemplation of nature, which grows and breathes. Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiThe cutouts on the upper slab bathe light to each space, optimising the sunlight. Wood breezes were used in the residence, bringing nature to the architecture, with the function of helping in privacy without giving up the visual permeability. The main highlight, the red color, creates a complementary scenario with the green and, in parallel, contributes to the personality of the project. Each wall becomes a backdrop for nature to grow.Save this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Marcelo DonadussiIn the upper floor is located the intimate area.

Dangers of NATO’s intervention in refugee crisis

first_imgThe intensity and dangers of the conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa have caused hundreds of thousands of refugees to flee from their homelands in desperation every month.NATO warship in the Aegean Sea.European television and YouTube show who is fleeing: infants; toddlers; children; pre-teens; women, some in the last stages of pregnancy; people with disabilities who are in wheelchairs or on crutches; and men of all ages, from the young and fit to the elderly and frail. They are coming off the boats on the Greek islands or are piled up in Athens ferry terminals, public parks or are under tents in the rain and mud at Idomeni on the Macedonian-Greek border.  According to figures released by the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), 38 percent of the arrivals since Jan. 1 are children, 21 percent are adult women and 41 percent are adult men. These percentages didn’t change much from 2015.They are not people who would spend a lot of money — sometimes all they have — to take the risk of suffering a serious accident or dying to travel long distances under harsh and nasty conditions, if there were any safe, realistic alternatives.The number of migrants who entered Europe in 2015 through the Aegean Sea’s Greek islands — many of which are extremely close to Turkey — is slightly over 1 million; 92 percent came from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. Nearly 450,000 migrants landed on the Greek island of Lesbos last year.  As of March 23, some 149,208 migrants have entered Greece this year. The European Union’s decision to send all refugees who land in Greece back to Turkey if they came after March 20 has created chaos.Oxfam denounced this development as “an offense” to Europe’s values. Other nongovernmental organizations said that the mass expulsions that they foresee happening violate international law. The NGOs have to get permission from the police to enter the new detention centers that Greece has set up for the migrants.The UNHCR, Doctors Without Borders (Medicins sans Frontieres), Save the Children, Oxfam and other well-known NGOs have withdrawn their operations in Greece and the Aegean Islands, or they plan to do so soon.  Adding to the complexities and confusion around the migrant issue, Turkey’s government indicated it would cancel the deal if its citizens do not get the right to travel to the EU without visas by the end of 2016, an arrangement which was part of its deal with the EU.The Greek Communist Party (KKE) issued a statement on March 8 that pointed to the causes of this crisis: “the wars and interventions unleashed by the USA, NATO and the EU in the wider region of the Middle East, the Eastern Mediterranean, North Africa.” The KKE says “The victims of wars, interventions and reactionary regimes have the right to seek a safer life in other countries.” ( The anti-imperialist statement says that the only permanent solution to these crises is the overthrow of the exploitative system that creates them. The KKE sees NATO’s intervention in the Aegean Sea as “using the refugee issue as a pretext” to prepare for other interventions in the area, in Syria and in other countries, which “will sharpen the problem of the refugee flows.” It could also, says the KKE, open up the possibility of abolishing Greece’s sea borders.As long as the misery and suffering that U.S. and European interventions create throughout the world intensify, the flow of refugees to what they see as “safe havens” will continue. Mass expulsions and the closure of borders will direct human migration into different directions — but besieged people will continue to seek safety, as is their human right.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Prison guards brutally beat jailed Cuban journalist

They also deliberately shut his leg in a door. He told his wife Elsa González Padrón in a telephone call on 7 January that he was still suffering from the after effects of the attack.”It is the second time in a month that a jailed journalist has been attacked,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of Reporters Without Borders. “The Cuban authorities are responsible for the state of health of the 30 journalists imprisoned in Cuba for having exercised their right to freedom of opinion as guaranteed by several international treaties ratified by this country.”The journalist was attacked after complaining about being transferred to Building 4B of the prison where 235 common-law prisoners are locked up in appalling conditions. Common-law prisoners are often made use of by the authorities to harass political prisoners.The journalist’s wife said she was also very concerned about the state of health of her husband who suffers from heart and liver problems and whose blood pressure is unstable. He was put in solitary confinement during the summer of 2003 for protesting against ill treatment meted out to another prisoner.Another independent imprisoned journalist Juan Adolfo Fernández Saínz was physically attacked by a common-law prisoner on 6 December as he tried to dissuade him from beating a fellow prisoner. No action was taken against his assailant.Arroyo Carmona was arrested with 26 other independent journalists and 50 other dissidents in an unprecedented crackdown in March 2003. They were sentenced to terms from six to 28 years in prison.

Journalists still live in fear four years after unpunished murder of Deyda Hydara

first_img December 15, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists still live in fear four years after unpunished murder of Deyda Hydara Gambia: former president must stand trial for journalist’s murder Organisation GambiaAfrica Three journalist arrested, two radio stations closed in Gambia RSF_en Follow the news on Gambia to go further August 6, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Newscenter_img January 27, 2020 Find out more Gambia still needs to address challenges to press freedom July 23, 2019 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today expressed its disgust at the obstruction and bad faith of the Gambian authorities who have allowed continuing impunity to the killers of Deyda Hydara, co-founder of privately-owned daily The Point, four years after his murder on 16 December 2004. Hydara, who was also correspondent in Gambia for Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Reporters Without Borders, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen travelling in a taxi as he was driving his car in an outlying district of the capital Banjul.“The few public promises made by the Gambian authorities in this case are smokescreens that fail to hide the obvious contempt in which President Yahya Jammeh holds journalists”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “In truth, the aim of the killers of Deyda Hydara was to silence Gambians by submitting them to fear of the “president’s men”. Only a campaign by those who do not live with this fear can make this plan fail”, the organisation added. In the weeks after the killing, Reporters Without Borders, which carried out its own investigation, made public its strong suspicion of the Gambian security services and in particular the “Green Boys” a semi-clandestine group of partisans of the Gambian president.There were several reasons for believing that Deyda Hydara was targeted to silence fierce criticism regularly levelled at the government by this journalist, former president of the Gambia Press Union (GPU) and dean of the country’s journalists.The police investigation promised by the Gambian authorities got nowhere. The only official report, sent to the press by the Gambian intelligence services in 2005, was “confidential”, outlining several leads, most of them absurd, which were supposedly intended to shed light on the circumstances of the killings.Since that date, most of the key witnesses to the case have disappeared, including the then director of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Daba Marenah, of whom nothing more has been heard since he was arrested after being implicated in an alleged coup attempt.The Gambian press, reduced to a few privately-owned newspapers under close government scrutiny is trying to survive in a climate in which the least incident is severely punished. Arbitrary arrest, threats and police brutality are now commonplace in a country ruled by a head of state who in several interviews has expressed his contempt and distrust for the media.

Apple Could Owe Caltech $837 Million

Caltech claimed that Broadcom chips, used in Apple devices, including the iPhone, used technology that had not been licensed.Apple and Broadcom denied any wrongdoing, but a Californian court did not agree and has ordered Apple to pay $837.8 million, while Broadcom has a bill of $270.2 million.The iPad and iPhone maker claimed in court that the firm should not be involved in the lawsuit whatsoever as an “indirect downstream party.”Caltech says the institution is “committed to protecting its intellectual property.”“We are pleased the jury found that Apple and Broadcom infringed Caltech patents,” Caltech said in a statement. “As a non-profit institution of higher education, Caltech is committed to protecting its intellectual property in furtherance of its mission to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research integrated with education.”Bloomberg reported that this was the 6th largest patent-related verdict ever. Naturally, both Apple and Broadcom have voiced that they plan to appeal the ruling.This is not the only lawsuit Apple is involved in worldwide. Another case of note is that against Corellium, a company which offers virtualized copies of popular operating systems including iOS and Android.Corellium says that its products can be used by researchers to find and flag security vulnerabilities without damaging their devices, thereby benefiting the cybersecurity industry as a whole. The software is also only available to established researchers and vendors, rather than the general public.However, Apple does not take this view and filed a lawsuit against the company in August 2019, alleging that Corellium is infringing on the tech giant’s intellectual property.Corellium has recently released a tool that allows users to install Android on older iPhone models, a move that may further increase Apple’s ire.

Limerick Youth Crime Figures Drop

first_imgAdvertisement Facebook Print Twitter YOUTH crime in Limerick is down over 20% from last year, according to figures just released by the Irish Youth Justice Service. Sergeant Ollie Kennedy, Henry Street Garda Station, said that Garda Youth Diversion Projects set up across the city have played a huge role in reducing these figures.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The idea is to divert young people who have come to the attention of the Gardaí away from crime”.The number of children referred to Limerick Gardaí in 2009 dropped by over 20%, from 1,680 to 1,314The number of children referred to the city’s Garda Youth Diversion projects dropped by 14% in 2009, from 1,109 to 951.There are five Garda Youth Diversion projects in Limerick City; Irishtown, Moyross, King’s Island, Ballynanty and the Southside Project and one in Newcastle West.When someone is referred, Gardaí approach their parents and discuss the possibility of entering a youth diversion project.Sgt Kennedy has been encouraged by the number of young people who have returned to education and completed their Leaving Cert through these projects.“We get the guys who feel they could be going down the wrong road and we show them there is an alternative”.Activities and programmes include car projects, watersport, bike projects and arts & crafts.“It’s important to break down barriers between the young people at risk and the Gardaí.“Just last week I saw young people kayaking with Gardaí and it’s was very good humoured and gave them a chance to see the Gardai are human,” said the Henry Street Sergeant.He explained that they attempt to make young people more conscious of their role in the community.“If there is a group harmlessly hanging around in an estate shouting and roaring, an elderly person who lives alone might think they are up to something so they should be conscious of how they are perceived”.

GSEs Making Push to Clear NPLs From Portfolios, Help Borrowers With Loss Mitigation

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: avoiding foreclosure Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Loss Mitigation Non-Performing Mortgage Loans With Fannie Mae’s announcement on Thursday that it is going to begin selling pools of non-performing single-family mortgage loans, it is clear that the GSEs are making a strong push to rid themselves of the backlog of deeply delinquent loans on their books five years after the peak of the foreclosure wave.The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), which has been the conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since September 2008, wants the two GSEs to clear out non-performing loans from their portfolios. Freddie Mac has conducted three sales of NPLs totaling $1.97 billion in unpaid principal balance in the last eight months, while Fannie Mae’s next such sale will be its first. It will likely not be the last, though; Fannie Mae’s SVP for Credit Portfolio Management, Joy Cianci, said the GSE is intent on “building these sales into a regular, programmatic offering to the market.”The two GSEs are not merely trying to excise these loans from their books, however – many of the loans are two years or even three years delinquent, meaning the borrowers who occupy the homes in those cases are in some stage of mitigation or are in foreclosure. The FHFA wants to help borrowers in these cases avoid foreclosure at all costs; in early March, FHFA issued enhanced requirements for the buyers and servicers of Agency non-performing loans that call for bidders to identify servicing partners at the time of qualification and complete a questionnaire to demonstrate a record of successful loan resolution through foreclosure alternatives.Also as part of the enhanced requirements, servicers who purchase non-performing Agency loans must apply a “waterfall of resolution tactics” before resorting to foreclosure and report loan resolution results and borrower outcomes to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for four years after the NPL sale.”These transactions are intended to reduce the number of seriously delinquent loans that Fannie Mae owns, to help stabilize neighborhoods, and to offer borrowers access to additional foreclosure prevention options,” Cianci said.According to the FHFA’s most recent foreclosure prevention report issued in late March, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completed 307,200 foreclosure prevention actions combined in 2014 and have completed 3.4 million such actions since the conservatorship began in September 2008. Foreclosure prevention actions include home retention actions such as permanent loan modifications, repayment plans, and forbearance plans as well as home forfeiture actions such as short sales and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure.Freddie Mac’s most recent NPL sale occurred on March 25, when it sold 5,398 deeply delinquent loans in three pools with a combined $985 million in UPB. It was Freddie Mac’s largest NPL sale ever; the previous two sales were in February for $392 million and in August 2014 for $596 million.
