The house as we call “FARM HOUSE” is not really a Farm house in its literal sense. It’s a house for a retired couple who spent most part of their working days in the heart of Bangalore city. They wanted move out of the hustle and bustle into a quieter locality. This plot was in a gated community near Electronic-city which is the hub of all major IT giants. The minimum plot size was 10,000 sq.ft , with a lot of coffee plantation and eucalyptus trees around. The greenery, serenity of this gated community and the quietness made us name this house as the “Farm House”.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil J The residence was conceptualized as an amalgamation of the serenity of the site and the client’s requirement of a simple and a low maintenance house. We did not want to block the view of the surrounding at the same time we had to give some kind of privacy to the inhabitants. Looking out to the house from the street, the front reveals two prominent cubes with two layers, one layer with opening and the other layer comprising of louvers. Where the opening gives the view of the outside from inside, the louvers give the required privacy.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe client’s requirement was quite unique. They wanted a big house when they have their daughters and grandchildren who live abroad coming to stay with them during holidays while a small one when it’s just the two of them. We divided the house in two parts, the active part and passive part. The active part has the absolutely essential areas like the bedrooms, kitchen and utility. We kept the Master Bed Room and a guest room next to each other opening on to a small family room. Right next to it is the dry kitchen and the wet kitchen with the utility. This part of the house is the active part.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe other extension was the bigger dining and a formal double height living which formed passive part. These two parts are separated by a single door. The closure of this door would mean the closure of the passive part of the house. The idea here for the client was to reduce the areas that needed to be cleaned daily. They would close this for most part of the year when it’s just the two of them. They also had a requirement for handicap access to the main entry, which made us give the entry ramp on the Eastern side of the main gate. A large court was created at the East side of the plot. This court was enveloped by the living room on one side and the dining on the other. The larger dining room and the living room open on to this same court which is tactfully tucked in to give privacy from the road in front. The upper floor balcony which is accessible from the family also overlooks this garden. A large hard-scaped deck precedes the luscious green expanse of the lawn.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JSave this picture!Elevation ASave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe Master Bedroom has a mezzanine which doubles up as working place for the man of the house while the lady can enjoy her afternoon nap or even read a book at the lower lever, each without disturbing the other still being together in a single space. This way, the couple have visual connect between each of them, while giving them the required privacy. The master bathroom has an outdoor shower area and also a foot spa along with the regular indoor bathroom. The walls around the outdoor shower area are cladded with yellow sandstone, which is one of the few coloured gems of the entire house, where the palette is mostly muted. Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe cantilevered wooden steps take one to the first floor which has a bigger family room and a bed room. There is one cozy reading corner on the first floor with a window looking on to the front road. The large sliding doors open on to this deck which then leads one to the lawn. Louvered grill and gate gave this space enough privacy from the road. The key feature involves giving large openings which are thoughtfully placed in the double height living and the master bedroom so as to get best view of the view of the green surroundings. This invariably integrates with the elevation treatment. The facade with just white and grey from the concrete texture as the prominent colors with bits of brown from the louvers comes across as elegant and modest, eliminating the sense of intimidation. The key was to get the right kind of concrete finish which set the tone for both the interiors and exterior of the houseSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil JThe interior of the house features a simple palette of black, white, shades of natural wood and concrete finish. The straight and minimal lines of the massing are in line with the simple straightforward interiors. Wooden steps cantilevering from the concrete textured wall, along with the SS cables instead of the handrail in the dining area make the space feel light and spacious.  The long skylight spanning over the entire stretch of the steps, adds to the lighting of the steps creating interesting patterns on the adjacent concrete finish wall. The client’s eclectic collection of old furniture that was used by the them for many years were re-polished to suit the tone of the rest of the house. Looking back, the project’s key hold was in understanding the client’s taste and requirement. The client’s aversion for opulence helped us to set the palette and texture for the entire house. The house is a distant retreat at the edge of the city with a civilized garden within a larger wilderness.  Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil JProject gallerySee allShow lessPinheiro House / Atelier in.vitroSelected ProjectsThe Glennon Residence / Reitsma and AssociatesSelected Projects Share “COPY” Sri Balaji Constructions Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Jaquar, Adobe Systems Incorporated, Air-Conditioning, Fenesta, Fie Tech, Granite Floor, Green Lam, Green ply, Hafele Fittings, Kajaria, Philips Lights, ZWCAD, Zenia Kitchens CopyAbout this officeShuonya Nava DesignsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsBengaluruOn FacebookIndiaPublished on May 17, 2020Cite: “Farm House / Shuonya Nava Designs” 16 May 2020.

Leading journalist finally freed

first_img May 16, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Leading journalist finally freed ————————————————————————————–16.05.11 – Journalist gets two-year suspended jail sentenceReporters Without Borders is outraged by the two-year suspended jail sentence that a Minsk court imposed today on Belarusian journalist Irina Khalip on a charge of “organizing and preparing a public order disruption” in connection with the protests in Minsk following President Alexander Lukashenko’s disputed reelection last December.“Irina Khalip did absolutely nothing wrong,” Reporters Without Borders said. “She just did her work as a journalist. This conviction must be overturned.”The Minsk correspondent of the Moscow-based independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, Khalip was arrested during the protests and was kept in jail for more than a month until released following international pressure. Her movements had nonetheless continued to be restricted until now and she was kept under close surveillance. She was also repeatedly harassed by the authorities.Belarus is ranked 151st out of 178 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index while President Lukashenko has been on the Reporters Without Borders list of Predators of Press Freedom for years because of his blatant harassment of independent media and journalists.——————————————————————————————–31.01.2011-Two journalists released shortly before EU imposes sanctionsThe European Union’s foreign ministers today banned Ukrainian President Alexander Lukashenko and 157 other Belarusian officials from visiting the EU and extended an existing asset freeze in response to the detention of 37 opposition figures and government critics since a disputed presidential election on 19 December.The Belarusian authorities had been expecting the sanctions and, in an apparent attempt to head them off, released four of the 37 detainees, including Natalia Radzina of Charter 97 and Irina Khalip of Novaya Gazeta, at the end of last week. The newly freed journalists are nonetheless still facing a possible 15-year jail sentence of a charge of “participating in riots.” “While welcoming these releases, we are not blind to the fact that the Belarusian authorities are playing for time and are trying to limit the European Union’s sanctions,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The leading opposition figures freed in the past few days should never have been detained. We call for the release of all of the 37 people facing possible 15-year jail sentences on charges of participating or organizing riots and we call for the withdrawal of these charges.”The press freedom organization added: “The European Union has a crucial role to play and by stripping President Lukashenko and other Belarusian officials of their visas, it has taken a first step. We hope it will not be the last one, and that the targeted leaders will understand the message they are being given. Belarus is an important EU partner and close neighbour. Tolerating such a level of repression would have serious consequences for all of Europe.”Radzina was released on 28 January from a Minsk detention centre run by the Committee for State Security (KGB) but her movements are strictly limited. She has been forced to return to the city where she was born in the west of the country and may not leave it without permission from the police.Following her release, she said she was shocked both by the manner of her arrest at the Charter 97 office in the early hours of 20 December and the nature of the charges brought against her. Like the other detainees, she had to give a written undertaking not to reveal any details of the investigation of which she is a target.Radzina said she was determined to go back to work as soon as possible and thanked all the journalists, politicians and members of the public who expressed their support for her and thereby helped to get her release. She added that she was injured when the police dispersed the 19 December demonstrations and then contracted bronchitis while detained. The Minsk correspondent of the Moscow-based newspaper Novaya Gazeta, Khalip was released on the evening of 29 January but was placed under house arrest and was not allowed to have any contact with the media. She is also the wife of Andrei Sannikua, one of the opposition presidential candidates. Sergei Vozniak, the editor of the newspaper Tovarich and a member of presidential candidate Uladzimir Niakliaieu’s campaign staff was also released on 29 January, as was Niakliaieu himself. Vozniak said he and five other detainees spent the first two weeks in a cell meant for two people. The entire detention centre was “overpopulated,” he said.The 37 leading opposition figures and government critics held since the immediate aftermath of the 19 December election included five presidential candidates. Thirty-three of the 37 seven are still held.More than 600 people were arrested when the security forces used violence to disperse anti-government demonstrations in Minsk on the evening of 19 December, following the announcement that President Lukashenko, who has ruled since 1994, had been reelected with about 80 per cent of the vote. International observers said the election were not democratic.The EU already imposed sanctions on Belarus’ leaders after a 2006 election that was regarded a fraudulent. to go further Organisation News May 28, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is pleased to learn that the Belarusian authorities have finally lifted the restrictions on journalist Irina Khalip’s movements that had been in place for more than two and a half years. A court in the Minsk district of Partyzanski ruled on 19 July that Khalip, a correspondent of the Russian independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, had satisfied the conditions of the two-year probation period imposed on when she was given a two-year suspended jail sentence on 16 May 2011.“The regime has made a small concession to freedom of information,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But the court violated judicial procedures by refusing to tell journalists when the hearing would be held in order to prevent them attending. Judge Rita Shagray, who is banned from entering the European Union, also forbad use of audio, photo and video equipment to cover the hearing.“We again urge the authorities to end all forms of persecution, including judicial persecution, of Belarusian journalists such as Andrzej Poczobut, who is still facing the possibility of three years in prison.”Khalip’s movements had been restricted since January 2011, when she was released after being held for more than a month. Arrested in December 2010 because of her coverage of anti-government protests, she was convicted on a charge “organizing and preparing a public order disruption.”Under the terms of her probation, Khalip had to report to a police station once a week, could not leave her apartment after 10 p.m., and could not travel outside Minsk without permission.“They took away almost three years of my life,” Khalip said. “If someone thinks that I am now a free person, it is a mistake. I was under virtual house arrest for two years and now they expect me to say thank you for not jailing me.”Belarus is ranked 157th out of 178 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. President Lukashenko has been on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators” for years because of his shameless persecution of independent media and journalists.

Reporters Without Borders says air strike on rebel radio station is “war crime”

first_imgNews Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Organisation News A Sri Lanka military air strike yesterday on the Voice of Tigers, the radio station of the Tamil Tiger rebels in the north of the country, was a “war crime,” Reporters Without Borders said. Three of the station’s staff, who had not been given any warning, and six other civilians were killed in the bombardment by air force jets.”Voice of Tigers is a propaganda radio operated by the LTTE rebels, but the rules of war are clear – military bombardment and bombing must be limited to strictly military targets,” the press freedom organisation said. “The government in Colombo uses the Geneva Conventions to condemn LTTE crimes but forgets the conventions when it bombs what is a civilian installation and therefore protected by the conventions.”The air strike on Voice of Tigers, located near Kilinochchi, took place in the afternoon and left a total of nine civilians dead (including three of the station’s employees) and around 10 civilians wounded. The Tamilnet website identified the dead employees as Isaivizhi Chempiyan (a former presenter), Suresh Linbiyo (a technician) and T. Tharmalingam.The bombing was carried out as the station was providing coverage of the annual War Heroes’ Day ceremonies, which the LTTE observes in the regions it controls. According to Tamilnet, broadcasts were able to continue with the help of another clandestine transmitter.The Sri Lankan military confirmed that the air force had destroyed the “clandestine Tiger terrorists radio station” in Kilinochchi. Previous air strikes in October 2006 caused serious damage to the station and wounded two employees.The Berne-based International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission (created under Protocol 1 of the Geneva Conventions), told Reporters Without Borders last year: “Deliberate attacks against journalists and infrastructure belonging to or used by the press constitute a serious violation of international law. Journalists have the right to perform their role in territories where fighting is taking place.”News media in other countries have been targeted as “propaganda media,” setting very dangerous precedents for the press. NATO bombed Serbian radio and TV headquarters in Belgrade in April 1999, killing 16 employees. The Israeli military blew up the Voice of Palestine radio and TV building in Ramallah, on the West Bank, in January 2001. And the Kabul bureau of the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera was the target of a US air strike on 12 November 2001.

#ShopLimerick: Public sentiment favours local producers and retailers

first_imgTwitter Advertisement Print Email WhatsApp Facebookcenter_img Linkedin Marian Ryan Taxback.comBUYING locally has come into focus like never before as a result of Covid-19 with more than two thirds of respondents  to a nationwide survey stating that they will ‘absolutely’  or ‘will try to’ buy from Irish producers and retailers during the pandemic.In the latest instalment of their Taxback.com Taxpayer Sentiment Survey Series, the tax specialists asked 2,500 of their customers for their views regarding support for Irish businesses following one of the most challenging years in recent history for certain sectors.The survey also flagged some trepidation amongst the Irish taxpayer over Ireland’s ability to remain competitive with almost two thirds (62%) worried that Ireland might struggle to remain an attractive destination for foreign direct investment.Marian Ryan, Consumer Tax Manager at Taxback.com said that Covid had put Ireland’s economic system under unprecedented strain.“As we approach Christmas, one of the busiest buying seasons of the year, there is a real focus on supporting our local and indigenous businesses where possible, to help the country get back on its feet and to preserve as many jobs as possible in our cities, towns, and villages.“Our survey echoes this sentiment, finding that the vast majority (68%) will ‘absolutely’ support Irish shops, services and products or they ‘will try’ to. However, finances are stretched for many households so, understandably, 20% of people say the price must be “right” or affordable to enable them to shop local.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Taxback.com survey also asked respondents for their views on whether or not they are worried about Ireland’s renowned ability to attract Foreign Direct Investment, which has created so many jobs.Ms Ryan said the survey highlighted a general sense of trepidation in terms of how Ireland will fare in its attractiveness to FDI as a consequence of the COVID pandemic.“The majority (62%) are worried, to varying degrees about Ireland’s ability to attract new investment.“It’s clear from the survey that the overall mood is one of caution and perhaps an understanding that we possibly need to support our own and to work together in order to begin our recovery,” she concluded.Read the Limerick Post Newspaper’s guide to local retailers HERE BusinessNewsLimerick#ShopLimerick: Public sentiment favours local producers and retailersBy Staff Reporter – December 1, 2020 59 Previous article#ShopLimerick: Give shopping local the green lightNext articleLimerick Post Show | New Leaf Urban Farmers Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Efficient flowline simulations of ice-shelf/ocean interactions: Sensitivity studies with a fully coupled model

first_imgThermodynamic flowline and plume models for the ice-shelf/ocean system simplify the ice and ocean dynamics sufficiently to allow extensive exploration of parameters affecting ice-sheet stability while including key physical processes. Comparison between laboratory and geophysically based treatments of ice-ocean interface thermodynamics shows reasonable agreement between calculated melt rates, except where steep basal slopes and relatively high ocean temperatures are present. Results are especially sensitive to the poorly known drag coefficient, highlighting the need for additional field experiments to constrain its value. Our experiments also suggest that if the ice-ocean interface near the grounding line is steeper than some threshold, further steepening the slope may drive higher entrainment that limits buoyancy, slowing the plume and reducing melting; if confirmed, this will provide a stabilizing feedback on ice sheets under some circumstances.last_img read more
