Save this picture!© Andy GibsonWith difficult overlooking constraints due to the position of the property on the slope we decided to create an intimate home filled with light and space and a strong relationship with the sky by means of three voids organised along the diagonal of the property.Save this picture!Floor PlanWhilst the ground floor has a strong relationship with the earth with views of the garden and contrasting light streaming in from above, the upper level elevates the viewpoint, a celestial level that frames the sky just above the horizon line. Through this subtle relationship between the earth and the sky we intend to create a home where the limits of space and the play on light and shade are enough decoration and come together as one clear expression.

CARE will replace Dyslexia Action’s current multiple administrative systems. Dyslexia Action wanted to move from non-integrated systems to one central database that could be accessed from many different locations. It was looking for an integrated CRM software solution to manage student assessment and teaching, training courses for teachers, member services, marketing and fundraising. The new system needed also to have full financial integration and tracking. CARE was the right product for Dyslexia Action due to its centralised approach and flexible structure. It will also provide the charity with a coordinated fundraising system which it had not had before. Advertisement
The multistory Atlanta City Detention Center was built prior to the 1996 Olympics to house the hundreds of poor and homeless people that the image-conscious corporate elite were determined to banish from the sight of a global audience.At that time the City Council passed a series of “quality of life” laws guaranteed to ensnare poor people, and Black youth and men in particular, into days or even months in the jail. For the next two decades, the 1,700-bed facility was filled with those too poor to pay the cash bond levied for traffic tickets and violations of city ordinances like loitering or public intoxication.Caption: Women on the Rise is one of many prisoner rights and community activists groups who “fought to win” in closing the Atlanta jail.The detention center deserved to be called a “concentration camp for the poor,” with its notorious record of medical neglect, physical brutality and unsafe conditions.On May 28, the hated ACDC was officially closed. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms signed the City Council’s legislation and ordered the establishment of a community task force to repurpose the building for the benefit of city residents.A victory for prisoner activistsThe struggle to achieve the shutting down of the ACDC involved years of effort by multiple groups that built campaigns to steadily reduce the incarcerated population. A pre-arrest diversion program was won with leadership from the Solutions Not Punishment Collaboration and the Racial Justice Center. That success was followed by reforms in cash bail and marijuana policies, which again kept large numbers of people out of jail. Immigrant rights groups such as Georgia Detention Watch and Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights zeroed in on the city’s arrangement with Immigrant and Customs Enforcement to house undocumented im/migrants in advance of deportation at ACDC. In response to outrage at the Trump administration’s family separation policy, the city ended the ICE contract, reducing the jail population by hundreds.Before its closing, the operating costs of the jail amounted to about $33 million a year, with only about 150 or fewer men and women locked up on a daily basis. Popular pressure from Women on the Rise, a organization of formerly incarcerated women, along with scores of other community groups, ultimately achieved the jail closure as a step in changing the racist, anti-poor, working-class-based system of incarceration.When some called for diverting the $33 million jail budget to the police department, activists made clear that their demand was instead to fund services to uplift and repair the communities whose members had been targeted by overpolicing, institutionalized racism and white supremacy. Working with architects and city planners, the “communities not cages” advocates already have design drawings of how the jail could be rehabilitated to a “one-stop shop” for a broad range of services, including health care, job training and community empowerment.The detention center sits on a large piece of valuable land in an area of Atlanta undergoing gentrification. Undoubtedly, profit-minded developers will be pushing their own agenda. But the determined activists, especially those who have personal experience with the crimes of mass incarceration, will be going into the next battle confident that “When We Fight, We Win!”Organizing to stop cop killing continuesThe same day the city announced the ACDC closing, the city also announced that Atlanta police would no longer participate in certain federal task forces. The recent killing of Jimmy Atcheson and, prior to that, the killing of Jamarion Robinson by FBI-led squads, saw family members and Black Lives Matter activists challenge the “official” stories. No body-camera video is allowed on federally organized task forces. Moreover, federal agents involved have not been made available for questioning by the Fulton County District Attorney.Atcheson was unarmed and hiding in a closet when he was killed by an Atlanta cop in an FBI-led squad. Seventy-six bullets fired at Robinson tore his body apart.While the city of Atlanta ordered its police to deploy body cameras during all interactions with the public, that still has not reduced the number of officer-involved shootings in 2019. Videos from bystanders, however, have produced charges against police.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

A tape of an interview with the wife of one of 26 journalists jailed was among the items seized. “After censoring and jailing independent journalists, the government is now trying to censor their families so as to make the world forget about those in jail,” said Reporters Without Border secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Cuban interior minister Gen. Abelardo Colomé Ibarra.He also protested about restrictions on visas for foreign journalists that forced them to work illegally under cover. “This is aimed at controlling the news and the country’s image abroad,” Ménard said. He called on journalists not to be afraid and to contininue going to Cuba to report on human rights violations. Briançon went to Cuba on a tourist visa. On World Press Freedom Day (3 May), Reporters Without Borders is putting a special page on its website called “Cuba, the world’s biggest prison for journalists,” which contains news about the imprisoned journalists, international reaction to their jail sentences and details of the control of news in Cuba generally. The page will be online in English from 7 May.A “confiscation and rectification” measureBriançon, who runs a French privately-owned production company, Mediasens, was detained at Havana airport on 4 May as he was passing through customs on his way out of the country. He was taken to a basement room and his luggage searched. Eight videotapes of interviews with dissidents were seized without explanation. He was simply asked to sign a receipt acknowledging that they had been confiscated as a “rectification” measure.Among the dissidents he interviewed were Beatriz del Carmen Pedroso, wife of Julio César Gálvez Rodríguez, an independent journalist arrested on 19 March and sentenced early last month to 15 years in prison. She gave details of the conditions of detention of her husband, who was transferred to a prison in Santa Clara (Villa Clara province), about 300 km from his Havana home.Twenty-five other journalists were arrested in late March and each sentenced to between 14 and 27 years in prison for allegedly undermining “national independence and territorial integrity.” May 6, 2020 Find out more October 15, 2020 Find out more News
RSF_en US secretary of state Hillary Clinton should stress the need to respect press freedom during her talks with government officials on the seven-nation African tour she has just begun in Kenya, Reporters Without Borders said today.“We welcome the US secretary of state’s decision to accord Africa a tour of this length,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We share her interest in combating corruption and we would like to stress that this requires defending press freedom. A journalist who exposes kickbacks, fraud or embezzlement in Africa is immediately harassed, arrested or even jailed.”The press freedom organisation added: “This tour offers the United States a chance to send a strong signal to African leaders by insisting that they pledge to respect basic freedoms. It also offers a chance to send a message of encouragement to their citizens, who are often punished if they dare to express their views freely. It is regrettable that certain countries are not on the programme, such as Gambia, which has the worst press freedom situation in West Africa.”On the first day of the Nairobi leg of her tour yesterday, Clinton urged African states to combat corruption and crime and to promote “good governance.” Before leaving the Kenyan capital, Reporters Without Borders thinks she should ensure that the authorities are deploying all possible resources to solve the murder of freelance journalist Francis Kainda Nyaruri, whose decapitated body was found in a forest in the southwest of the country on 29 January.Shortly before his death, Nyaruri said he had been threatened by police officers whose behaviour he had criticised. “Only the arrest of both the perpetrators and instigators will serve to reassure Kenya’s journalists, who have been deeply traumatised by this appalling murder,” Reporters Without Borders said.While in Nairobi, Clinton is also due to meet Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, the president of Somalia’s transitional government, which has been weakened by the Islamist militia Al-Shabaab’s offensive. With 14 journalists killed since the start of 2007, Somalia is the deadliest country in Africa for the media and the US government should encourage the authorities to protect journalists.While the arbitrary arrests, kidnappings and murders of journalists in Somalia are already extremely worrying, Clinton should bear mind that an Al-Shabaab victory over the government forces would have a dramatic impact on basic freedoms and especially freedom of the press.After South Africa and Angola, Clinton will have an opportunity in Kinshasa to share her concern with President Joseph Kabila about the impunity enjoyed by those who killed Radio Okapi journalists Serge Maheshe and Didace Namujimbo in Bukavu (the capital of the eastern province of Sud-Kivu). The trial of those who allegedly gunned down Maheshe on 13 June 2007 was a complete fiasco that has been denounced by many local and international human rights groups. The military court in charge of investigating the murder of Namujimbo, who was shot in the head on 21 November 2008, has yet to hold its first hearing.Clinton’s talks in Nigeria with President Musa Yar’Adua will undoubtedly touch on the recent deadly clashes between the security forces and Islamist militants in the north of the country as well as Nigeria’s oil-fuelled powerhouse economy. She should also remind him that journalism is a dangerous profession in Nigeria.Journalists are constantly the victims of street violence, heavy-handed raids and beatings by the police and the State Security Service, and arbitrary arrest by provincial governors, who often abuse their authority. After Gambia, Nigeria is the West African country that shows least respect for press freedom, according to the 2008 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.While on her way from Liberia to Cape Verde, the former First Lady would ideally detour via Banjul in order to tell Gambian President Yahya Jammeh how much his behaviour appals human rights activists and pro-democracy campaigners. Seven journalists who are leading members of the Gambia Press Union are currently being harassed and prosecuted for criticising Jammeh. At the same time, he has been making provocative and threatening comments about journalists on the state-owned broadcaster GRTS and does not hesitate to throw leading figures in prison as if they were common bandits.“Firm condemnation of this situation by Washington would have the merit of ending the deafening silence about Gambia’s human rights violations and would reassure the sizable Gambian diaspora in the United States,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The US intelligence services could also take the opportunity to release the information they have about the circumstances in which Deyda Hydara, the editor of the privately-owned newspaper The Point, was murdered in 2004,” Reporters Without Borders added. In the course of two detailed investigations into Hydara’s murder, the press freedom organisation found evidence indicating that President Jammeh’s security services were involved.

Kuzma/iStock(NEW YORK) — The jury reached a verdict in the New York rape trial of Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced former Hollywood mega-producer.Weinstein, 67, was found guilty of criminal sexual assault and of rape in the third degree. He was found not guilty of the more serious charges of predatory sexual assault and of rape in the first degree.The judge in the case remanded Weinstein into custody without bail, against his attorneys’ request. Attorney Donna Rotunno said in court Monday she was requesting “house arrest,” citing “letters from his doctor,” as he “was found not guilty of the most serious charges he was charged with.” Weinstein had been using a walker throughout the trial.March 11 was suggested by the judge for sentencing.The criminal sexual assault charge came from Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi, who was a production assistant and said that he assaulted her in 2006. That charge came with sentencing guidelines of five to 25 years.The charge of rape in the third degree came from another, unnamed accuser, and came with sentencing guidelines of probation up to four years.Cy Vance, the district attorney of Manhattan, said at a press conference that the case — and the women who testified against Weinstein — “pulled our justice system into the 21st century.”“Rape is rape whether it’s committed by a stranger in a dark alley or a domestic partner in a working relationship,” Vance said, adding they he owes “an immense debt” to the women who “had the courage beyond measure” to testify.Weinstein was charged with raping one woman in a Manhattan hotel room in 2013 and performing a forcible sex act on a different woman, who has since identified herself as Haleyi, in 2006. He pleaded not guilty to all charges and claims any sexual encounters were consensual.In addition to the two women behind those charges, four others testified in support of prosecutors’ efforts to demonstrate a pattern of sexual predation.Prosecutors were attempting to convict him on two predatory sexual assault counts, both of which carried possible sentences of 10 years to life. Ronan Farrow, one of the journalists who reported on the extensive allegations against Weinstein, told “Good Morning America” in January that prosecutors were taking a “big risk” by seeking those charges.“It is difficult this element of proving not only the charges at issue but also a course of conduct, a pattern — sets a very high goal. It’s atypical,” Farrow said, adding that it’s not a “slam-dunk” case. “More often, you’d see something like a prior conviction being the predicate that establishes the pattern. Here, they have to prove brand new additional fact patterns.”Heading into Monday, the jurors had deliberated for 16 hours, including about four hours of testimony being read back.The jury had indicated some trouble in coming to a decision, which included days of deliberation. On Friday, they had asked the judge if they could “be hung on [counts] 1 and or 3” — the predatory charges — “and unanimous on the other charges.”In total, 28 witnesses were called, including seven witnesses called by defense and two experts.“While it is disappointing that today’s outcome does not deliver the true, full justice that so many women deserve, Harvey Weinstein will now forever be known as a convicted serial predator,” the Silence Breakers, a group of people who have accused Weinstein of assaults, said in a statement Monday. “This conviction would not be possible without the testimony of the courageous women and the many women who have spoken out.”Me Too, a movement founded in 2006, said in a statement, “We would do well to ask ourselves how many of these women’s names we can actually remember, beyond the boldface few? Certainly, Harvey’s name will be seared in our collective memories, but many of the survivors will be quietly taking stock of the impact.” This is a developing story.
