The location is the outer Stockholm archipelago. Tall pines give the forested site an untouched character. The house is placed in a clearing with a high position in the landscape, on a plateau facing the sea in the north. The property has been in the family for a long time with a couple of small complementary buildings, a boathouse and a guesthouse, that has been used for vacation stays. As the family grew with a new generation, the need for a larger house with more space followed.Save this picture!© Ake E:son LindmanThe light conditions, the sea view and the flat and smooth bedrock were some of the qualities that constituted the starting point for the house. A relatively low budget also influenced the design, resulting in the idea to use tectonic rationality to support a specific spatial structure.Save this picture!© Ake E:son LindmanThe house, a pitched roof volume in two levels, is divided into an open social area at ground floor and a more private upper level, with bedrooms and a playroom. Within the square plan, a freestanding box holding kitchen, bathroom and the stair, organizes the ground floor into a sequence of interconnected spaces. Large sliding windows open up to the views in all directions and allow the sunlight to fill the interior. On the upper level a skylight that runs along the ridge of the roof underscores the verticality of space and subtly enhances the experience of seclusion.Save this picture!Section 1Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe exterior is entirely clad with folded black sheet metal of varied widths that integrate the position of the windows. Three glazed sliding doors with frames of hard wood provide entrances and direct access to the outdoor areas on the naturally flat part of the bedrock. All construction and finishes are made out of wood. The open plan is made possible with glulam wooden beams. Between these beams plywood sheets has been bent to form a series of vaults that add direction to the interior spaces.Save this picture!© Ake E:son LindmanProject gallerySee allShow lessAnchorena / Proyecto CSelected ProjectsWinning Proposals Transform Power Plants into Public ArtArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeTham & Videgård ArkitekterOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesStockholmHousesSwedenPublished on October 06, 2014Cite: “House Husarö / Tham & Videgård Arkitekter” 06 Oct 2014.

Remember Odessa, demand justice

first_imgA rally against fascist attacks in Odessa and in the U.S., outside the U.S. Military Recruiting Center in New York’s Times Square, May 2.On May 2, the fourth anniversary of the Odessa massacre in Ukraine, the International Action Center held a protest and memorial outside the U.S. Military Recruiting Center in New York’s Times Square.Those attending took turns reading the names of activists who died in 2014 when Nazi gangs invaded the multinational seaside city of Odessa, torched a protest encampment and then set fire to the nearby House of Trade Unions, where people had fled.Protesters chanted, “U.S.-backed fascists kill! From Odessa to Charlottesville!” and handed out informational leaflets, drawing the attention of many people passing through the busy area during evening rush hour.Kayla Popuchet of the IAC denounced U.S. collaboration with neo-Nazi gangs. “The U.S. government helped overturn the elected government of Ukraine, then murdered 48 anti-fascists in Odessa. Actually, we believe many more died,” she said.Taryn Fivek of Workers World Party recalled: “I cried when I heard about what happened four years ago in Odessa. I didn’t imagine then that a few years later I’d be in Charlottesville, Va., facing a similar situation,” when white supremacists drove a car into anti-fascist counterprotesters, killing Heather Heyer.“We need to stay in the streets and keep fighting the fascists,” Fivek declared.Anna Rebrii, a native of Lugansk representing the United National Antiwar Coalition, explained that families of Odessa massacre victims continue to be persecuted by Ukrainian authorities and right-wing goons. She said May 2 actions throughout the world were honoring the fallen anti-fascists and demanding protection for their families.Popuchet read a statement from Alexey Albu, a survivor of the massacre and coordinator of the banned Marxist organization Borotba: “We declare that we remember every deceased defender of the city and do not intend to forgive those responsible.“Four years have passed of brainwashing, imposing alien ideological values ​​on our children, disfiguring the city with ultranationalist symbols. Despite this, Odessa has survived. Odessa has not broken down. Odessa did not take on nationalistic ideas!”Chanting “New York Times lies! People die! From Odessa to Palestine!” activists then marched down 42nd Street to the headquarters of the U.S. “newspaper of record.”“There is an enormous amount of video, photographic and eyewitness evidence of those responsible for the massacre,” said Greg Butterfield, coordinator of the IAC’s Solidarity with Novorossiya and Antifascists in Ukraine. “The New York Times and other corporate media choose to ignore it. They deliberately aid the cover-up by the U.S. government and its Ukrainian puppets.”Butterfield also denounced the Trump administration’s recent sale of $47 million of Javelin anti-tank weapons to Ukraine. “More than 10,000 people have already been killed in Kiev’s bloody war against the liberated territories of Donetsk and Lugansk. While the Times claims Russia is the aggressor in Ukraine, it is really Washington pouring fuel on the fire.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Innovative Handbook Highlights International Laws Protecting Journalists’ Rights to Freedom of Speech

first_img LONDON (29 June 2015) – An innovative handbook published today aims to become the ultimate tool for journalists and bloggers worldwide seeking guidance on the international legal framework protecting their rights to freedom of expression. RSF_en Organisation News Related documents handbook-rsf.pdfPDF – 3.81 MB center_img Produced by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, Reporters Without Borders, and Paul Hastings, the Defence Handbook for Journalists and Bloggers is unique in its kind as it focuses specifically on the application of international legal principles to the work of journalists. It also includes previous decisions and recommendations made by international and regional bodies and courts in relation to various aspects of freedom of speech.Because journalists operate within an international legal framework, their rights to freedom of expression are protected but also restricted in specific circumstances. The Handbook looks at how freedom of speech is balanced with other rights and issues, such as the right to privacy, the protection of public morality, and the national security of states. It compiles rules and principles professionals can easily consult and apply, and provides critical practical guidance on important issues affecting their work: from the extent to which they can criticise public figures; to the circumstances in which state secrets can be released; to the different rules and principles regulating blasphemy laws.“Journalists around the world are more and more under threat and often become targets,” said Monique Villa, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation. “Terrorist groups, but also powerful lobbies and a number of governments are increasingly trying to censor the media, preventing opinion sharing and the release of vital information to the public. Now more than ever, journalists need to be brave, avoid self-censorship, and be aware that they can seek refuge in international law. This guide is a very powerful weapon.”“Freedom of expression can never be taken for granted. It must, at all times and in all countries, be advocated, promoted, and defended. The world needs independent journalists, who engage in the pursuit of the truth, who respect standards of ethics, and whose mission is to give citizens of this world tools to understand what surrounds them. This Handbook will be extremely useful to all reporters, whether professional or not, wherever they work, whatever the circumstances, and whether they face prosecution or just want to know their rights,” said Christophe Deloire, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders.The Defence Handbook for Journalists and Bloggers is also intended for lawyers who defend journalists but may not have easy access to international legal resources. Human rights activists, civil society organizations and NGOs should also find it a useful working tool and reference on international standards of freedom of expression.“By the very essence of ‎our beliefs and commitments, lawyers identify naturally with journalistic principles relating to freedom of expression. This explains perhaps why so many of our lawyers from offices around the world wanted to participate in this pro bono project”, said Pierre Kirch, a litigation partner in the Paul Hastings Paris and Brussels offices, who led ‎the team of lawyers which researched and drafted the handbook.The Handbook is the result of a unique global partnership between TrustLaw, the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s global pro bono programme; Reporters without Borders; and over 70 lawyers at Paul Hastings, who provided close to 3,000 hours of invaluable pro bono expertise.Formally launched at an event on freedom of speech held in London on June 29, the Handbook is intended as a participatory project for all journalists. In the next few months, reporters, NGOs and lawyers will be invited to add their input and insights to the existing body of research. This online process will ensure the Handbook is constantly updated and relevant.

Exaggerated exodus: Covid didn’t scramble people’s migration patterns

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Email Address* Full Name* “In many ways, the fundamentals in the data show that Austin is the next Austin,” CBRE research director Eric Willett told the paper.Net out-migration, where more people leave than arrive, accelerated most in big cities including New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Boston. The greatest beneficiaries of that were metro areas surrounding big cities, where people can find more affordable real estate but still be within driving distance of downtowns.However, the influx of people coming to New York City is expected to outpace those who jump ship this month, according to a report by real estate consultant Nancy Packes Data Services and Eastdil Secured. The gap between the number of households changing their address to a zip code outside the city versus moving into the city has gradually decreased since May 2020.[NYT] — Orion JonesContact Orion Jones Tags Message* The report of the death of cities was an exaggeration, an analysis of 30 million change-of-address forms shows. (iStock)Cities won’t become post-apocalyptic graveyards and work-from-home urbanites won’t revive rural America.While many people moved away from New York City and San Francisco during the pandemic, migration patterns largely remained the same as before, according to an analysis by the New York Times. The analysis was based on the 30 million change-of-address requests made in 2020 to the U.S. Postal Service.Some smaller regional metros and vacation markets saw more residents come in.

Breakup and conditions for stability of the northern Larsen Ice Shelf, Antarctica

first_imgThe breakup of ice shelves has been widely regarded as an indicator of climate change1, with observations around the Antarctic Peninsula having shown a pattern of gradual retreat, associated with regional atmospheric warming and increased summer melt and fracturing processes2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. The rapid collapse of the northernmost section of the Larsen Ice Shelf (Larsen A), over a few days in January 1995, indicated that, after retreat beyond a critical limit, ice shelves may disintegrate rapidly. Here we use a finite-element numerical model that treats ice as a continuum without fracture10 to examine the breakup history2 between 1986 and 1997 of the two northern sections of Larsen Ice Shelf (Larsen A and Larsen B), from which we establish stability criteria for ice shelves. Analysis of various ice-shelf configurations reveals characteristic patterns in the strain rates near the ice front which we use to describe the stability of the ice shelf. On Larsen A, only the initial and final ice-front configurations show a stable pattern. Larsen B at present exhibits a stable pattern, but if the ice front were to retreat by a further few kilometres, it too is likely to enter an irreversible retreat phase.last_img read more

Using super-high resolution satellite imagery to census threatened albatrosses

first_imgThis study is the first to utilize 30-cm resolution imagery from the WorldView-3 (WV-3) satellite to count wildlife directly. We test the accuracy of the satellite method for directly counting individuals at a well-studied colony of Wandering Albatross Diomedea exulans at South Georgia, and then apply it to the closely related Northern Royal Albatross Diomedea sanfordi, which is near-endemic to the Chatham Islands and of unknown recent population status due to the remoteness and limited accessibility of the colonies. At South Georgia, satellite-based counts were comparable to ground-based counts of Wandering Albatross nests, with a slight over-estimation due to the presence of non-breeding birds. In the Chatham Islands, satellite-based counts of Northern Royal Albatross in the 2015/2016 season were similar to ground-based counts undertaken on the Forty-Fours islands in 2009/2010, but much lower than ground-based counts undertaken on The Sisters islands in 2009/2010, which is of major conservation concern for this endangered albatross species. We conclude that the ground-breaking resolution of the newly available WV-3 satellite will provide a step change in our ability to count albatrosses and other large birds directly from space without disturbance, at potentially lower cost and with minimal logistical effort.last_img read more

Links between bacteria derived from penguin guts and deposited guano and the surrounding soil microbiota

first_imgPenguins are an important indicator of marine ecosystem health and a major contributor of nutrients to terrestrial ecosystems in Antarctica. Their stomach microbiota is influenced by both the prey consumed and their foraging environment in the sea. As penguins feed at sea and breed on land, they might be expected to transfer microbes (e.g. prey-associated and marine bacteria) as well as nutrients from their stomachs while regurgitating food or in their guano to the surrounding terrestrial environment. However, most research attention to date has focused separately on the penguin gut microbiota (via cloacal/guano samples) and the terrestrial soil microbiota, and any relationship between them has yet to be established. Here, we analysed the bacterial communities in stomach regurgitates and cloacal swabs from the same individual birds, freshly deposited guano and rookery soils of two Pygoscelis penguins that breed sympatrically on Signy Island (South Orkney Islands, maritime Antarctic) using a high-throughput DNA sequencing method. Our data do not support the hypothesis that bacteria transferred from penguin guts and/or deposited guano make a significant contribution to the communities of the surrounding terrestrial microbial ecosystem. In both penguin species, composition of bacterial communities differed between the four sample types, with Jaccard similarities ranging between 10 and 36%. Assemblages of the dominant and co-occurring bacterial communities in rookery soils were either significantly negatively correlated or not correlated with the three other sample types. Sample-specific communities were also identified in this study, contributing around 63% of the identified diversity overall.last_img read more

Clegg under fire within and without

first_imgAs thousands of students marched on the streets of Westminster, heated exchanges about hiked tuition fees and education cuts were also taking place within the House of Commons. During Prime Minister’s Questions, Nick Clegg’s U-turn in his policy on tuition fees came under fire from Harriet Harman. The Deputy Leader of the Labour Party was met with applause and laughter when she said, “During the election [Mr Clegg] promised to abolish tuition fees. Can he update the House on how it’s going?”When Mr Clegg told Ms Harman that there was a “consensus” across the parties about the need to reform university funding, Ms Harman hit back, saying, “None of us agree with tuition fees of £9,000 a year.” She suggested Mr Clegg had been “led astray” by the Conservatives, who had plans “to shove the cost of higher education on to students and their families”.But Mr Clegg said the government had come up with a “fair and progressive solution to a very difficult problem”. He said the Lib Dems had to change policy because of the financial situation and compromises made in the coalition agreement.Mr Clegg added, “This is an extraordinarily difficult issue and I have been entirely open about the fact that we have not been able to deliver the policy that we held in opposition.” The Lib Dems had made a pledge before the general election that they would not raise tuition fees and would fight all attempts to increase them. However, since entering government as the coalition partner of the Conservative party, leading members of the Lib Dems now support the proposed fee rises. Much of the student anger at the London demonstration was directed towards Nick Clegg. As well as storming the Conservative headquarters, hundreds of students swarmed outside the Lib Dem offices. Crowds gathered around a large fire, as students sung “Build a bonfire, build a bonfire, put the Tories on the top; Put the Lib Dems in the middle, and we’ll burn the f***ing lot”. Throughout the London protests students chanted, “Nick Clegg shame on you, shame on you for turning blue.”Many protesters expressed their frustration and disillusionment with the democratic process after the Lib Dems’ policy changes regarding higher education. Kate Halls, a fourth year Arabic and Hebrew student at Wadham, said, “We know that politely filing past Parliament to ask for favours will get us nowhere: the only way to achieve change is to make for the locus of power and start taking it apart. Only thus will we convince the hypocrites and thieves running our country that we are a force to be reckoned with.”Patrick Fleming, a second year Oxford PPEist, said, “The claim that yesterday’s protest was spoilt by the scenes at Millbank is premised upon a naive trust in the workings of democracy. There is no channel for genuine debate of ideas, no prospect for government to listen its electorate, and crucially, no accountability between (or even at) elections. “The violence was a rational expression of rage from citizens who have been tricked, ignored and sidelined time and again. There is no other channel which grants us the opportunity to express the extent of our frustration and alienation. We had to fight, and so we fought.”last_img read more
