The particular site possesses a very wide view of the sea, so I had difficulty finding the cornerstone. This led me to a solution where I lifted the entire building and located the entrance at most natural approach possible. I used this position as the structural core and starting point for the overall design. The upper part above the pilotis supported by the RC is a hybrid structure constituting a polyhedral roof frame, made of wood and steel-frame truss. The footprint is slim and long, forming an L-shape. The private zone, which includes the master bedroom, is on the approach side and the main room has a 12-meter opening which enables a panoramic view toward the sea, with the entire structure(5m×20m) lifted above ground. Save this picture!© Ken YokogawaThe wooden lattice KANGU (furniture used to design or control a space) leading up from the entrance of the RC core on the first floor is a staircase creating a vertical flow. This also serves as a boundary for the main room space, one that does not require a partition or door. Above, one finds a gallery leading up to the loft. The narrative expressed by the spatial changes from the polyhedral roof frame and the KANGU result in creating a sense of unchanging stability a sense of unhurried joy of living in the villa.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow less“Immersive Bowl-Shaped Structure” Proposed to be High Line’s Final GatewayArchitecture NewsWinners of 2013 Architecture at Zero Competition AnnouncedArchitecture News Share Area:  267 m² Area:  267 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Japan Projects CopyAbout this officeKen Yokogawa Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTateyamaHousesJapanPublished on November 17, 2013Cite: “Sakurai House / Ken Yokogawa Architect & Associates” 17 Nov 2013.

Indeed Ofcom mentions registered charities as one of the likely groups who might operate such a licence.While community radio stations are encouraged not to ‘talk at’ its community, but rather involve it, there would certainly seem to be an opportunity for a charity to promote both its services and fundraising activities. Advertisement There is no fixed number of licences available but Ofcom expects to award up to 50 during 2004/05. Licence applications will be awarded for a maximum of five years.Applications must be received by 23 November 2004.A non-refundable application fee of £600 is payable by each applicant.

Reporters Without Borders backs media code of good conduct

first_imgNews June 25, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders backs media code of good conduct RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan News RSF_en Afghanistan is ranked 128th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.*Tolo TV, Shamshad TV, On TV, Lemar TV, Ayena TV, Metra TV, Aryana TV, Tamadon TV, Khorshid TV, Radio Killid, Radio Amozegar, the Pajhwok news agency, the 8 Sobh, Mandegar and Arman Meli daily newspapers, the Nameh e Kherad weekly, the National Union of Journalists of Afghanistan, the Afghan Independent Journalists Association, NAI (a media freedom group), the Association of Women Journalists and International Media Support. News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Organisation to go further Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Reporters Without Borders supports the “Code of Good Conduct” that Afghan journalists’ associations and media executives have signed with the aim of ensuring that the current post-election crisis in Afghanistan is covered professionally and responsibly.Afghanistan has been rocked by a political crisis since the second round of the presidential election on 14 June, above all as a result of allegations of electoral fraud by one of the candidates, Abdullah Abdullah.The authority of the Independent Election Commission (IEC) has been badly undermined. As the same time, media have been fuelling the crisis with aggressive comments about certain ethnic groups and even hate speech.Journalists’ associations, media freedom groups and leading national media* signed the Code of Good Conduct on 24 June. All have stressed the importance of the role of the media and journalists, and have urged media personnel to “remain impartial as regards ethnic and religious communities and political tendencies in order to provide coverage that is in the public interest.”The Code of Good Conduct has also been signed by the head of the Media Centre (an offshoot of the information and culture ministry), representatives of both candidates, the United Nations mission in Afghanistan and the IEC.The code’s 11 articles call for ethical coverage of events without inciting hatred, especially during news broadcasts. The code urges journalist to be professional while moderating debates and interviews, and recommends not interviewing those who encourage hatred towards religious and ethnic communities. It also urges journalists to do serious investigative reporting, to inform the public about any irregularities or fraud, and to press the authorities and election officials for explanations.“We support this Code of Good Conduct because freedom of information must be exercised in a responsible manner,” said Réza Moïni, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran-Afghanistan desk. “Journalists are not like other citizens, inasmuch as people pay a great deal of attention to what they say. While following a code of conduct, it is important that Afghan journalists are free to investigate the allegations of irregularities during the presidential elections, because its credibility is at stake.”On 28 March, Reporters Without Borders issued a report about media freedom in Afghanistan that is entitled “Presidential election in Afghanistan: local media on the front line.” RWB also launched an information campaign aimed at preparing journalists for the election and protecting them while they were covering it.The Handbook for Journalists during Elections, which RWB produced jointly with the International Organization of the Francophonie, was translated into Persian and Pashto, and copies were distributed to Afghan journalists who attended seminars that RWB organized in Kabul and in Sayad (in the northeastern province of Kapisa) in September 2013.Reporters Without Borders invites Afghan journalists to read the Handbook’s recommendations again.

Artists takes viewers back to Wonderland in new exhibit

first_img Published 7:00 pm Friday, October 9, 2020 Artists takes viewers back to Wonderland in new exhibit You Might Like Roads reopen Hurricane Sally dumped more water on Pike County on September 16, than most roadways could handle and several bridges could… read more Email the author By Jaine Treadwell “Nall is deliberate in taunting the viewer with eye candy,” Noriega said. “Look closer and you begin to see the truth, the reality of the Wonderland we live in and the passages we experience.”Al Head, former longtime executive director of the Alabama State Council on the Arts, said there can be no doubt that “Alice” is the creation of a master artist at his best. “ “Nall’s Alice in Wonderland’ is an extremely sophisticated work of art, a very special body of work,” Head said. “It is an amazing ‘drawing.’ It is Nall.”Troy University Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. likened Nall to a destructive insect that invaded Coffee County around 1917. The pest destroyed the county’s cotton crop and caused economic devastation. Two years later, the City of Enterprise erected a monument to the destructive boll weevil that made the peanut king and brought prosperity to their land.“Nall has been a disrupting force in the arts,” Hawkins said. “Nall has redirected the arts and his relationships with artists have strengthened the partnership between the arts in the East and the West around the globe and at Troy University.”The chancellor, laughingly, said his “bride’ and Troy University First Lady Janice Hawkins is a disruptive force in his life.“When Janice learned that a parking was being planned for this space, she said, ‘Over your dead body.’”The First Lady’s vision, not for just an art center at Troy University, but for an international art center, took time, planning and bringing others on board who shared her vision.Fred “Nall” Hollis, a hometown boy, was on board from the very beginning.“Janice is a dedicated supporter of the arts and her vision for an international arts center at Troy University was right on,” Nall said. “I don’t know of anyone who is more dedicated to the arts or more appreciative of the arts or more supportive of the arts than Janice. I love her and appreciate her. I love Troy University and Troy, Alabama. I am honored to have my work exhibited at the International Arts Center.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… The International Arts Center at Troy University hosted the premier of internationally acclaimed artist Nall’s “Alice in Wonderland” Thursday evening.“The ‘Alice in Wonderland’ series is unique in Nall’s career, and it stands as his most acclaimed work,” said Carrie Jaxon, IAC director. “We are honored to host this exhibit, which illustrates the brilliance of an artist coming into his own. “ Nall’s work was inspired by Lewis Carroll’s 1865 novel, “Alice in Wonderland Book Nook to reopen Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Skip Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Sponsored Content Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits “But it’s not that kind of Alice,” said Kaitlyn Callaway, Nall’s assistant at Fairhope. No, Callaway said, Nall’s “Alice in Wonderland” is an emotional work of art that is an expression of Nall’s love for “Alice” and, also a remarkable pencil work that captures both Nall’s artistic genius and his whimsical, sometimes, goof-off nature. Nall was the center of attention at the gala event, but he continually directed the attention from himself to “Alice.” “This is not about Nall,” he said. “It’s about ‘Alice.’ I lived ‘Alice’ for three years. Once you live ‘Alice,’ you can’t stop living her. I can’t stop living ‘Alice’ and I can’t stop loving her.”For Nall, his desire to express his living and loving of “Alice” was an emotional journey and also a “somewhat spiritual journey.” He realized that his picture story of Alice in Wonderland could best be told in pencil but not just a pencil drawing. It had to be a pencil painting and that dictated his developing and perfecting a pencil painting technique.“How, do you draw a white string on white piece of paper with a pencil?” Nall said, with a questioning, raised eyebrow.” Then he quickly directed his attention to the gallery guests “Do come see ‘Alice.’”“Nall’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ is rite of passage,” said Ed Noriega, Troy University Professor of Art and Design.
