Because of unusually long yet broad layout of the living room, our initial idea was based on the distribution of all the required services along the longitudinal wall of the living room thus allowing custom usage of its capacities while leaving most of the remaining space free for other non-functional types of activities.We designed this spatial element as unobtrusive as possible. With the minimal design it visually substitutes the clear white supporting wall, with only seemingly randomly placed niches as indicator of architectural intervention. Save this picture!© Jure GoršičOak is the predominant wood material used in the design, selected because of the nearby location of outstanding oak forests.

Local authorities take over Osh TV after national security raid and director’s dismissal

first_img October 9, 2020 Find out more August 26, 2020 Find out more KyrgyzstanEurope – Central Asia Organisation News News RSF calls for the immediate release of Uzbek journalist Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Kyrgyzstan News Reporters Without Borders is worried about the provisional government’s takeover of nearly all of Kyrgyzstan’s TV stations and the procedures being used to nationalise them. Osh TV, an Uzbek language station based in Osh, the capital of southern Kyrgyzstan, is a case in point. The government has acquired a controlling interest in its shares and has arbitrarily fired its director.All of the country’s major broadcasters have been “temporarily” nationalised since May under a law that was passed on 7 April. Fifth Channel, Pyramida TV, NBT and NTS have all already been nationalised in a similar fashion to Osh TV, which stopped all broadcasting a week ago.Osh TV and Mezon TV provided live coverage (without comment) of a meeting of the Uzbek community in Jalal-Abad (a city near Osh) in May at which the participants discussed their representation in Kyrgyzstan’s governing bodies and the possibility of creating an autonomous Uzbek republic in the south of the country.The meeting enraged the Kyrgyz community, prompting the provisional government’s decision on 20 May to send troops to curb the rioting. After covering the attacks and pogroms in Osh, Osh TV was shut down for two weeks by the city’s mayor, Melisbek Myrzakmatov. Other privately-owned stations such as Mezon TV, Pyramidy and DDD were also suspended, while the national broadcast media were able to continue broadcasting without any problem.Osh TV had just resumed broadcasting when it was raided by armed members of the State Service for National Security (GSNB) on 9 July. After a thorough search, they seized some its computers and archives (disks containing video recordings). They also arrested Khalil Khudoybedyev, who has run the station for the past 20 years, interrogated him for several hours and confiscated his mobile phone.He was released later the same day and no charges (such as “inciting inter-ethnic hatred”) were brought against him. He said the authorities just asked him questions about the size of his family and ages of his children. No explanation was given for his subsequent dismissal and his current location is being kept a secret for security reasons.A new director, Kamil Sydykov, has been appointed but Osh TV has yet to resume broadcasting. The news website said the city authorities, including Mayor Myrzakmatov, would participate in the “transfer” of control from the previous director (an ethnic Uzbek) to its new director (an ethnic Kyrgyz).Reporters Without Borders is shocked by Khudoybedyev’s interrogation, which seems above all to have been designed to intimidate, and condemns the raid by GSNB agents, who cited no charges or investigation that would justify the search and seizures, and who did not have any warrant authorising them to detain and interrogate the station’s director. As no charge was brought against him, his mobile phone and the confiscated equipment must be returned.After meeting with Interim President Roza Otunbayeva, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s media freedom representative, Dunja Mijatovic gave a news conference in Bishkek yesterday in which she mentioned the problems encountered by journalists in the south of the country but refused to give her evaluation of the press freedom situation, saying the country was currently experiencing one of the darkest moments in its history.Reporters Without Borders regrets that Mijatovic did not say whether she had raised the murders of Kyrgyz opposition journalists during her meeting with the president. She did however mention this important issue when she addressed an OSCE commission meeting in Helsinki on the subject of threats to press freedom in OSCE member countries.center_img RSF_en to go further RSF asks authorities, opposition to guarantee reporters’ safety during Kyrgyzstan protests KyrgyzstanEurope – Central Asia August 14, 2020 Find out more July 20, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Local authorities take over Osh TV after national security raid and director’s dismissal RSF is concerned about the fate of an Uzbek journalist extradited by Kyrgyzstan News Receive email alertslast_img read more

Coronavirus live updates: Georgia school district says 100 students, staff test positive

first_imgbeerkoff/iStockBY: WILLIAM MANSELL AND ELLA TORRES, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 721,000 people worldwide.More than 19.3 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.The United States is the worst-affected country around the world, with more than 4.9 million diagnosed cases and at least 161,358 deaths.Here’s how the news is developing today. All times Eastern. Please refresh this page for updates.10:49 a.m.: Hospitalizations and deaths continue to increase in FloridaThe Florida Department of Health reported increases in both hospitalizations and deaths Saturday.Hospitalizations were up by 521 in the last 24 hours, with 6,991 active hospitalizations, while deaths rose by 182, putting the total number at 8,233, according to the department.Cases also increased by 8,502 and 86,175 tests have been conducted. The state has now seen 526,577 confirmed cases of coronavirus.Bay County, of which Panama City is the county seat, has the highest positivity rate in the state at 16.3%.However, Miami-Dade County, the most populous county in the state, has the highest number of new cases at 1,801.8:54 a.m.: Princeton shifts learning plan for fall semesterPrinceton University will not bring freshman and juniors back to campus in the fall, as originally planned, due to coronavirus cases that have “soared” in recent weeks, according to a statement from the president of the university.Courses will now be fully remote for undergraduates in the fall semester, president Christopher L. Eisgruber said. Graduate students will be allowed on campus because of the “different instructional and residential programs.”“This combination of health concerns and restrictions will significantly diminish the educational value of the on‑campus experience. It will also render that experience confining and unpleasant for most students,” Eisgruber said.He also noted that students from 34 states would have to quarantine upon arrival in New Jersey for 14 days and that the phased opening for the state has been paused over fear of rising cases.“New Jersey’s careful approach has helped to keep the pandemic in check, but public health principles and state guidance still limit very substantially what we can do on campus,” Eisgruber said.The president said that the university will accommodate students who aren’t able to return home or study from home, as well as a limited number of students with previously approved exceptions, which recognized their need to be on campus for their senior thesis research or other work essential to their degree programs.Eisgruber said that while he knows the news is “disheartening and disappointing,” the university is doing its best to prepare to welcome students back in the spring.New Jersey was among the states hit hardest in the early stages of the pandemic, but has since seen some of the lowest daily infection rates. Gov. Phil Murphy has warned of late about rising numbers.5:57 a.m.: Georgia school district reports 100 COVID-19 cases among students, staffAs the debate about reopening schools continues across the country, many children are already back in classrooms or are about to start. One state that has grabbed headlines this week is Georgia, where photos of crowded hallways showing students without masks went viral.Now, one of the largest school districts in the Peach State is reporting that 100 of its students and staff are suspected of having tested positive for COVID-19, even before in-person classes have started. Those figures were provided to the district by the Georgia Department of Health.Cobb County Schools Superintendent Chris Ragsdale said the district would remain virtual “until public health data in Cobb County changes and guidance from state and local public health officials recommends it,” according to ABC News Atlanta affiliate WSB. The district, which has about 113,000 students, starts remote learning on Aug. 17.Georgia exceeded 200,000 COVID-19 cases on Aug. 5, according to an internal Federal Emergency Management Agency memo obtained by ABC News. It took four months for the state to reach 100,000 cases and just four weeks to reach 200,000.Cobb County, according to the Georgia Department of Health, has more than 13,000 confirmed coronavirus cases, with 1,363 current hospitalizations. The county has at least 317 COVID-19 deaths, the second most in the state, trailing only Fulton County’s 420 deaths.The state has more than 209,000 confirmed cases, with at least 4,117 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
