With every realisation of a project the architect fundamentally interferes with the natural or urban ambient. The site is never again the same as it was before the intervention. Because of that, the architects responsibility to the space into which he intervenes is even greater.Save this picture!© Miran KambičIn the case of House on Golo, which is situated on a picturesque location, overlooking the peaks of Julijske Alpe, Karavanke and the Kamniško-Savinjske Alpe, one of the essential characteristics of the area is represented in the colour and the texture of the soil on which the house is built.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe structure of the house follows the tectonic layering of the terrain into which the construction pit was dug. With a careful casting of the concrete, coloured in the same shade as the autochtonous rocks and executed in separated layers, the house with it’s architecture replaces what it has taken from the nature during the construction.Save this picture!Basement Floor PlanSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe house is sited as a set of three volumes of different heights, which follow the terrain configuration. The ground floor, spanning over three slightly different levels, corresponds to the living style of it’s users.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe study room is located on the lowest of the three levels and represents the heart of the house. It is made completely out of wood and serves as an ambiental contrast to the fair-faced concrete walls and terrazzo floors of the rest of the living space. The concrete walls are designed as a background to the owners’ collection of art pieces .Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe window has a double role in architecture: on one hand it allows natural light to enter the interior while at the same time directs the views outside towards the surroundings.Save this picture!© Miran KambičThe same is true for House on Golo, since the rhythm of the window openings is carefully formed to frame the views towards the Alps. It is also the reason for the seamingly random layout of the windows on the facade.Save this picture!© Miran KambičProject gallerySee allShow lessNine Projects to be Highlighted in ‘In Therapy’, the Nordic Contribution to the 2016…Architecture NewsJJ&S.M Houses / Atelier MimaSelected Projects Share Year:  ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeARK Arhitektura KrušecOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGoloSloveniaPublished on February 19, 2016Cite: “House in Golo / ARK Arhitektura Krušec” 19 Feb 2016.

#HoldTheLine Coalition calls for criminal tax charge to be dropped as Maria Ressa returns to court

The #HoldTheLine Coalition urges the state to immediately drop this charge and end the prosecution of the other charges and cases associated with it.If convicted, these three related tax cases could result in up to 44 years of imprisonment for Maria Ressa. They hinge upon the bogus notion that Rappler’s parent company, Rappler Holdings Corporation (RHC), is not a holding company for a news organisation but rather a ‘dealer in securities.’ “Legal acrobatics – that’s what all these cases show. In order to charge me with tax evasion, the government reclassified Rappler as a ‘dealer in securities’ – we’re obviously a news organisation. It’s absurd!” Ressa said. “From inciting hate on social media to weaponising the law to using the full force of the state against journalists trying to hold power to account … it’s a war of attrition, tearing down trust and credibility. This is how democracy dies by a thousand cuts.” It is notable that the arrest warrant in the criminal case associated with the July 22nd arraignment was issued in the immediate aftermath of Ressa being honoured with two prestigious international journalism awards in November 2018 — from the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), which together with Reporters Without Borders (RSF) form the #HoldTheLine Coalition Steering Committee.The tax-related cases and charges are predicated on another suite of charges and cases connected to alleged foreign media ownership breaches designed to shut Rappler down. They cumulatively represent maximum prison sentences of up to 36 years. Together with the criminal libel conviction, which is currently under appeal, and a second pending libel action, convictions in all these cases could theoretically lead to a century in jail for  Ressa.Further, the Coalition calls on the Pasig Regional Trial Court to conduct proceedings remotely on July 22nd to ensure the safety of Ressa, her legal representatives, media and court staff amid the coronavirus pandemic. We note that in addition to this court being associated with what appears to be a deadly COVID-19 outbreak, Ressa was forced into lockdown following her appearance in June before a different court which was also the subject of a COVID-19 scare. This demand from the #HoldTheLine Coalition echoes the call by more than 10 thousand signatories who have signed a petition calling on  the Philippine government to drop all cases against Ressa, her former colleague Reynaldo Santos Jr, and Rappler, and to cease attacks on independent media in the Philippines. Once again, we also note the devastating blow to media freedom and access to information caused by the Duterte administration’s permanent shuttering of the national TV station ABS-CBN.Contact #HoldTheLine Steering Committee Members for further details: Julie Posetti ([email protected]); Rebecca Vincent ([email protected]); Courtney Radsch ([email protected]).Note: The #HoldTheLine Coalition currently comprises 78 organisations.

The Naming Saga In Andhra Pradesh

The Victoria memorial, King George hospitals, Nizam College, Krishna Raja market, Maharaja’s colleges etc. are etched into our memories. At least here, we can console ourselves by saying that it is a practice in a monarchy. But, what if the practice of naming after the incumbent heads of the democratically elected Government is prevalent?The State of Andhra Pradesh is forefront in this naming saga. The State Government has at least 7 welfare schemes in the name of the present Chief Minister Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy. Jagananna Vasathi Deevana (Jaganna’s accommodation blessings), Jagananna Vidya Deevana (educational scheme), Jagananna Gorumuddha (mid-day meal scheme), Jagannaa Chedodu (Jegananna’s assistance), Jagananna Amma Vodi (Jagananna’s scheme for mothers), Jagananna Vidya Kanuka (Jagananna’s education gift), YSR-Jagananna Colonies are the schemes named after the Chief Minister who came to power with a thumping majority in 2019. The list would further increase, if we also include the schemes named after CM’s father and former CM of the State, Dr. Y S Rajashekara Reddy (Dr. YSR). As it has become a custom now, the present Government changed the schemes named after the former CM and founder of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) Mr. N T Rama Rao to Dr. YSR. To be fair to the present Government, even the previous TDP Government has schemes named after the then CM Chandra Babu Naidu (Chandranna Peeli Kanuku, Chandranna Bheema etc.) Even the sister state of Telangana has a scheme named after its CM K Chandrashekara Rao (KCR Kits scheme). How can the schemes be named after the Chief Ministers holding the office, as if it is their personal charity? Is it not an indirect way of gaining political mileage by promoting the political leaders using the public money? This practice of naming the schemes after the serving CMs is against the principles and traditions of democracy and rule of law. This naming saga merits serious consideration in the light of the recent judgement of the AP High Court, where the Court quashed a memo which allowed the panchayath offices to be painted in the colours of the ruling YSRC party’s flag. After coming to the power, the YSRCP Government vide a memo dated 11.08.2019 permitted the panchayath buildings to be painted in the colours resembling the party flag. The Court opined that painting the Government offices in the colours of the flag of the ruling party amounts to gaining unfair political advantage and is violation of rule of law. The judgement was later approved by the Supreme Court in appeal proceedings. In the said case, the High Court has heavily relied on the 2015 judgement of the Supreme Court of India in Common Cause v. Union of India, where the apex court has given the guidelines on the Government advertising. Though our issue at hand (naming of the schemes) is not advertising per se, the expansive interpretation given by the court to ‘advertising’ along with the spirit of the judgement covers this situation too. After all, when the Governments advertise the schemes, the names of the schemes are also promoted. The objectives of the said guidelines are very clear regarding the political neutrality in the Government advertising. The guidelines provide that the Government advertising should not be used to “project particular personalities, parties or governments without any attendant public interest.” It also states that “Government advertising shall maintain political neutrality and avoid glorification of political personalities and projecting a positive impression of the party in power or a negative impression of parties critical of the government”. What is happening with the naming of the schemes after incumbent Chief Ministers is glorification of their political personalities, to gain undue political mileage at the cost of the public resources. The practice of renaming the schemes for the namesake, when new Governments take charge is in complete violation of one of the guidelines which says that “Pre-existing policies, products, services and initiatives should not be presented as new unless there has been a substantial change or modification of such policies, products or services.” There can be no doubt that, this practice of naming is in clear violation of the guidelines given by the Supreme Court of India, not to mention the democratic traditions and the rule of law. More imminent danger to our democracy because of this practice is elevation of these political leaders to the status of demigods. Like one of our founding fathers and chairman of the drafting committee of the Constituent Assembly Dr. Ambedkar warned us on the day of adoption of our Constitution, “Bhakti in religion may be a road to the salvation of the soul. But in politics, Bhakti or hero-worship is a sure road to degradation and to eventual dictatorship.” (26th November 1949- Constituent Assembly Debates).(The author Sri Harsha Kandukuri is LLM student at Azim Premji University in Bengaluru.

Student leaders and activists such as Devangana Kalita, Natasha Narwal, Safoora Zargar, Gulshima Fathima, Umar Khalid, Asif Iqbal Tanha, Khalid Saifi, Tasleem Ahmed, Sharjeel Imam, Ishrat Jahan, Meeran Haider, Tahir Hussain etc are among the 18 accused in the riots conspiracy case. The Special Cell of Delhi Police Crime Branch has registered FIR No.59/2020 against them under UAPA alleging that the anti-CAA protests organized by them were a conspiracy to create communal riots.During the hearing, ex-JNU student leader Umar Khalid appeared in person before the judge to complain that certain media houses were indulging in ‘media trial’ against him and the other accused.Umar Khalid told the judge that certain media houses are repeatedly publishing damaging reports against the accused, despite a court order which asked them to refrain from carrying reports prejudicing the right to fair trial.”It is happening again and again. When the media reports projects you as an accused well before the trial…this is against the rights of accused and violates constitutional mandates.There were newspapers where the pictures of Asif iqbal, Natasha, me, Devangana etc were published with the headline “Dilli dango ke bade gunegaar, ye hain unke chehere”. How can we be condemned without given a chance?”, Umar Khalid submitted.”Without a trial, they are projecting us as dangaayi and rioters”, Khalid added.”After the headlines quoting us as dangaayi was shown, we have been discriminated in jail. I have not been given proper medical treatment”, Asif Iqbal, another accused, told the judge.’Reputation A Facet of Article 21′ : Delhi Court Slams Media For Publishing News Against Umar Khalid Without Verifying All Facts In Riots CaseKhalid Saifi, founder of the group “United Against Hate”, told the judge: “I am unable to understand what are the charges against me. They say I was part of the protest. They are making serious allegations against me as being a terrorist, because of my name. Before coming to court with anything, they go to media. Then things are published and thereafter they come to court. this entire process has to stop”.Tasleem Khan, another accused in the case, told the court that he was slapped in jail and was denied medical check-ups.Advocate Adit S Pujari, appearing for ‘Pinjra Tod’ members Devangana Kalita and Natasha Narwal, submitted that the accused are entitled to get the copies of the chargesheet and the supplementary chargesheet.However, judge Amitabh Rawat asked if the court can order supply of the documents before the stage of taking cognizance.Pujari submitted that TV channels and newspapers were carrying reports against the accused quoting from the charge-sheet.The judge told the Prosecutor that the leakage to media should not have happened.”I do feel that this leakage from media shouldn’t have happened. Why the media is getting into this?”, the judge said.Pujari submitted that the leak is happening from the police end. Mentioning a Times Now report, Pujari submitted that the sections of the supplementary charge sheet were leaked in the media. He added that because of such leakages, the accused in the case have to undergo media trials that is against their rights. “The supplementary chargesheet is with the police officer and then it comes to court. But it gets leaked with media. When the leak happens from police, it is very important here”, he said.The Special Public Prosecutor Amit Prasad denied that police was leaking information. The SPP told the judge that the Delhi High Court is hearing Asif Iqbal Tanha’s petition against leakage to media.The SPP further submitted that the accused were also running ‘narratives’ in some media outlets about the police investigation. In this context, he referred to an article published by ‘Newslaundry’.Pujari responded by saying that articles citing the police or accused versions are different from media reports based on selective quotes from prosecution documents which have not yet been shared with the accused.Advocates Siddharth Satija and Rizwan, appearing for other accused, urged the Court to pass appropriate orders  taking cognizance of the media reports prejudicial to the accused.The Delhi High Court in November last year had stayed the trial of FIR 59. A single judge bench of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait had ordered the stay after the Delhi Police’s challenge to the order passed by the trial court directing it for providing physical copies of charge sheet to the accused persons.Next Storylast_img read more

Troubling video appears to show Oklahoma police zap man dozens of times before death

first_imgLeft, Joshua Taylor, 25, and Brandon Dingman, 34, of the Wilson Police Department in Oklahoma, is charged in connection to the second-degree murder of Jared Lakey. – (Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation)By CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(CARTER COUNTY, Okla.) — Disturbing video of a 28-year-old Oklahoma man, who died shortly after he was shot with a stun gun more than 50 times by two police officers and placed in a chokehold by another, was released on Tuesday by an attorney for the victim’s family.Jared Lakey died two days after he was arrested July 4, 2019, allegedly for running down the street while yelling.An inquiry lead by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation found that when Lakey did not comply with the commands of Wilson police officers Joshua Taylor and Brandon Dingman, they both used police-issued stun guns until a backup officer with the Carter County Sheriff’s Office arrived to assist.A 50-minute video was edited down to 10 minutes before its release due to the sensitivity of the incident, according to attorney Steven Terrill.The footage begins with a 911 call from an unidentified person, who provided a vague description of the suspect.Taylor, whom Terrill said was the acting chief of police at the time of this incident, was the first to arrive on scene, but his body camera was turned off. When Dingman showed up, both body cameras were activated, according to Terrill.Dingman’s dash camera showed Taylor in a steady stance with what appeared to be his stun gun drawn while standing over Lakey, already on the ground.“Put your hands behind your back for me,” Dingman said three times to Lakey.“Non-compliance is gonna get you Tased,” added Taylor.The crackling of the electric shocks from the stun gun are heard piercing Lakey’s body as he grunts in pain.Throughout the video, Lakey, who was nude for unknown reasons, is heard repeatedly screaming for the officers to stop, and for help, as he writhed on the ground.“Jared’s toxicology screen from the medical examiner came back clear of any illicit drugs,” said Terrill, who filed a civil lawsuit against the city of Wilson. An attorney for the city said Tuesday evening it had not yet been served with a suit.According to the video, Lakey appears to be shocked by two stun guns simultaneously.“Axon/Taser warns against simultaneous exposure and cumulative exposure exceeding 15 seconds,” Terrill said. “Jared was Tased for approximately four minutes of cumulative exposure.”Terrill said Lakey was shocked 53 total times by Taylor and Dingman and placed in a chokehold by an unidentified backup officer for 40 seconds.Lakey stopped breathing, became unresponsive, began breathing again and was taken to the hospital, according to the OSBI.“No officers initiated any life-sustaining measures for over 3 1/2 minutes after determining he wasn’t breathing,” Terrill said.The state’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined Lakey’s death was due to complications of a heart attack “and law enforcement use of electrical weapon and restraint,” the Daily Ardmoreite reported.After finishing its investigation, the OSBI turned over a report to the Carter County District Attorney’s Office, which charged Taylor and Dingman with second-degree murder. The unidentified officer was not charged.Both officers reportedly have been placed on administrative leave and posted $250,000 bond.Ryan Hunnicutt, the attorney for Dingman and Taylor, could not be reached for comment by ABC News on Tuesday evening.But in a statement to The New York Times on July 3, he said: “The death of Mr. Lakey saddens us all. We are confident that the legal system will provide an opportunity for all the facts to be known and look forward to our day in court.”The next court date for Dingman and Taylor is Aug. 27.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
