Wind and swirling rain, coupled with the humidity made the 80 minute affair error-strewn and very stop-start.Throughout the first 20 minute the Wallabies knocked on the European door consistently and with varying degrees of force but the men in white managed to hold them at bay. Unbelievably after just 23 minutes they had made 111 tackles. Unfortunately for them, probably the smallest player on the pitch, Nic White managed to burrow over the line to get the first try and first points of the match.The Georgians quickly responded with a penalty, and then gave one right back to Matt To’omua who slotted and gave the Australians a 10-3 lead heading into half-time.Coming back out for the second half the Wallabies had to play the first 5 minutes with 14 men as Isa Naisarani was finishing off his sin-binning after a high tackle on the 35th minute. Michael Cheika would have been pleased that they did not conceded any points in that period, but what he will be less pleased with was how disjointed and lacklustre the men in gold were.Marika Koroibete then put clear daylight between the two sides with a fine solo effort that illuminated his threat in broken play, and just how exhausted the Georgians looked. 10 minutes later Sandro Todua scored for Georgia which them the slimmest of hopes but they were dashed in the final five minutes as the Australians sealed the bonus point with tries from Jack Dempsey and Will Genia.Georgia will go home after failing to qualify for the knockouts whereas Australia will face England in the quarter-finals provided Wales beat Uruguay which seems pretty certain.Star man – Marika KoroibeteIn a game as difficult as this it is always problematic to pick a star player but Koroibete’s solo try and ability to create something out of nothing gets the nod for us.

This residence is located slightly apart from the main residential area in Ikoma, Nara prefecture. The residents purchased the property because they liked the feeling of nature close at hand. The lot is longer from east to west than from north to south, with woods on the east side; Mt. Ikoma is visible to the west. In this district, regulations stipulate the colors of exterior walls and roofs on newly built houses, and require that they have sloped gable roofs. The architects therefore sought a design that made optimal use of the required triangular roof.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe residents have a largely indoor lifestyle, and wanted windows from which to view the woods and Mt. Ikoma, as well as walls on which to display the Japanese-style paintings that they enjoy creating as a hobby.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe architects responded by proposing that the living-dining-kitchen area and other areas shared by the whole family serve as a “gallery” running all the way from east to west. Because the gallery meanders back and forth in a zigzag shape, the atmosphere varies from one section to the next, with direct and reflected light from the east and west ends blending in an interesting way.Save this picture!Courtesy of FujiwaraMuro ArchitectsThe entryway and kitchen are located in the central space, with the living-dining room, sunroom, and studio on the east side. The living room and sunroom are designed so that neighbors cannot see in, but the residents inside are able to look out on a view of the woods. On the west side of the entryway is a second living room with a view of Mt.

In our design project, to recover a space or a building always means to find in the preexisting structure the prompts for a new beginning. It is not an easy task. You need to look beyond appearances. You need to inspect and remove layers. Sometimes, you need to do that physically. This was the case for the restoration of the Verona Penthouse in the old town center of Verona.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZWe first demolished all of the plasters. We were looking for something true, something strong. We were looking at the past of the artifact to find some remnants for the future, and there we found them. By removing the plasters, a beautiful rough masonry resurfaced. Just by looking at the stonework, we could tell it was not meant to be left in plain view. It was imperfect, inexact but, for this very reason, authentic, carved by the humble and elegant expressivity of the poor things when they are true (and not the unfortunate result of misaligned narrative expedients). Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZIn the freed space, the brutal force of the stonework pushed us to radicalize the architectonic translation of the functional program. We did not build new walls within the space structured by the masonry. Rather, we compartimentalized the functional program inside new grafts-like devices. Thus, the original walls entered into an intense dialog with the new elements, which were crafted using highly authentic materials capable of engaging with the poetic roughness of the stone.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZA pitch-pine boiserie(minium-colored and burnt) crosses the spaces from the lowered entrance down the living and slides along to constitute a side of the bedroom. Inside it, we find the guest toilet, the laundry room, and the bedroom wardrobes. The surface is uninterrupted and the otherwise indiscernible openings are marked only by some read-lead handles of our own design.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZThe host bedroom toilet is inscribed within a black, uncolored, sheet metal volume treated with shoe polish. The volume presents different ploys: towards the bed, a big opening is ambiguously divided by a mirror and a polarized glass, which can hamper or offer a voyeuristic view of the bathroom. Towards the bedroom, a piston-driven remote control allows a hide-away TV set to come on stage. Finally, the door is concealed by a mirror that renders the movement between the volume and the boiserie all the more enigmatic. The entrance wall of the living is marked by the iconic presence of two slightly overlapping circles. They were made using different metals (brass and aged iron). This device too aims to conceal the invasiveness of the TV. Upon manual operation, in fact, a sliding mechanism brings the TV screen into view. Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZSave this picture!DrawingsSave this picture!DrawingsOther elements are characterized by a similar tendency to narratively break away with ordinary approaches and reinterpretations in architectural design: an iron gate structures the living back wall and contains a metal kitchen with burnished brass finishing touches. The false ceilings of the lowered parts are in black natural iron plates. Custom furnishings (tables, sinks, beds) are developed using industrial metallic profiles with visible joins.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier XYZProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse for a Writer / Iniesta Nowell ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCasa Rosario / DOSA STUDIO + Rojkind ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Verona, ItalyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Iran is world’s biggest prison for journalists again

first_img Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists to go further March 18, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF_en The Islamic Republic of Iran has recovered its status as the world’s biggest prison for the media, with a total of 42 journalists detained following the confirmation of Ahmad Zeydabadi’s six-year sentence on appeal on 4 January and a Tehran revolutionary court’s decision the same day to sentence Bahaman Ahamadi Amoee to 34 lashes and seven years and four months in jail. Also on 4 January, 36 parliamentarians who support President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad presented a bill under which detained government opponents would be regarded as “mohareb” (enemies of God) who should be executed “within a maximum of five days” of their arrest. It would also reduce to five days the period allowed for an appeal in cases of “disturbing public order” and “moharebeh” (war against God), instead of the 25 days currently allowed under article 236 of the criminal code. “We are very disturbed by the calls repeatedly made by the most senior officials for Iran to impose the ‘supreme punishment’ on detainees, including journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The danger is imminent. The regime hardliners are capable of having the crackdown’s witnesses executed. There is an urgent need for international bodies to take action before a tragedy takes place, before political prisoners begin being executed.” An intelligence ministry representative said at a news conference on 4 January: “Several agents from foreign countries have been arrested with cameras and video cameras.” The ministry also released a list of 60 NGOs and news media regarded as having incited and participated in rioting. They included the BBC (especially its Persian service), Voice of America and human rights groups such as Human Rights Watch. It is now strictly forbidden for Iranian citizens or organisations to cooperate or have any contact with the listed organisations. Arrested on 14 June, Zeydabadi is meanwhile still being subjected to considerable pressure from intelligence ministry interrogators to publicly request a pardon from the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, for its articles critical of the government. Previously detained in 2000 and 2003, he is still being held in solitary confinement in Evin prison’s Section 2009. A winner of the World Association of Newspapers’ Golden Pen of Freedom Award in 2009, Zeydabadi received the six-year sentence on 23 November. He was also sentenced to be banished to Gonabad, a remote northeastern town. It was his wife, Mahdieh Mohammadi, who revealed that the sentence has been upheld on appeal. The news of Amoee’s sentence was announced by his lawyer, Fraideh Gheyrat. A contributor to various pro-reform publications, Amoee was arrested at his home on 20 June. His wife, fellow journalist Jila Baniyaghoob, who was arrested at the same time, was released on 19 August after payment of 100 million toman (90,000 euros) in bail. The intelligence ministry and Revolutionary Guards began rounding up government opponents and journalists again after further opposition demonstrations on 27 December. Around 20 people have been arrested in the latest wave, including a dozen or so journalists and cyber-dissidents. The relatives of the detained journalists are still lining up outside Evin prison in an attempt to get news of those believed to be held there.

He told Radio Free Asia they had been arrested and interrogated in connection with”illegal publications” and had not been mistreated._______________________________________________________ Thaw Thaw Myo Han, an electronic communication student at Rangoon’s University of Technology, writer and contributor to the magazines Sa-be-byu, Han-thit and Atwe-amyin, was arrested by the military secret police on 17 August along with two other students. There has been no news of them since their arrest.”The Burmese junta has shown unprecedented signs of opening-up in recent months, with the release of Aun San Suu Kyi and numerous other dissidents. These fresh arrests are the most unfortunate and most blatant refutation of this opening-up. They raise the spectre of a new wave of repression of opposition activists, in particular journalists, who attempt to inform the population about the activities of opposition movements and the situation in the country,” state Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders and U Thaung, President of the Burma Media Association, in their letter to Burmese Interior Minister, Lieutenant-General Tin Hlaing. The two organisations have called for the immediate release of Thaw Thaw Myo Han and his companions, and have called on the regime to halt arbitrary arrests immediately.Thaw Thaw Myo Han was arrested at his Rangoon home during the night of 17 August by the military intelligence service. The authorities, when questioned about the reasons for the arrest, refused to make any comment. The student, who was writing articles in support of democracy and of Aung San Suu Kyi, had previously been taken into police custody in July 2002, after he published the University Literary Journal, under the auspices of the University Students’ Literary Association, without authorisation. The day he was arrested, a final-year law student, Thet Naung Soe, distributed a statement in a Rangoon street calling on the Burmese people to “make a clear choice between living in fear or living in freedom”. According to the Irrawaddy news magazine, Thaw Thaw Myo Han was arrested because the military authorities suspected him of being involved in a plan to organise a pro-democracy demonstration.At least 21 students have been arrested since 17 August, and dozens more have gone underground.

Required fields are marked * Make a comment Alyssa M. Ward, Ph.D., LCP. Photo courtesy Hathaway-SycamoresHuntington Medical Research Institutes (HMRI) – a distinguished biomedical research organization in Pasadena – recently appointed Alyssa M. Ward, Ph.D., LCP, as a Visiting Scientist. A resident of San Marino, Dr. Ward will simultaneously continue in her position as Director of Evidence-Based Practice and Clinical Training at Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services.In her position at Hathaway-Sycamores – which is among California’s leading children’s mental health and welfare agencies – Dr. Ward is charged with overseeing the clinical training of staff members and ensuring that their training reflects scientific, evidence-based practice. In her role as a HMRI Visiting Scientist, Dr. Ward will be looked to for her expertise in clinical research and randomized clinical trials. Specifically, she will be a co-principal investigator on a research network team that’s applying for a National Institutes of Health grant focusing on pediatric traumatic brain injury recovery.In addition to Dr. Ward’s extensive experience dovetailing with HMRI’s research and clinical-trial needs, many of the children that Hathaway-Sycamores serves have suffered traumatic brain injuries or are at high risk for sustaining such injuries. As a result of Dr. Ward’s HMRI Visiting Scientist post, impacted Hathaway-Sycamores’ youth will have access to state-of-the-art, free-of-charge medical testing for traumatic brain injuries. This diagnostic data can then help inform these youngsters’ physical and mental-health treatment plans and, hopefully, improve their treatment outcomes.Commenting on her HMRI appointment, Dr. Ward said, “I’m excited to be part of two organizations – Hathaway-Sycamores and HMRI – both of which are leaders in their respective fields. Working together,” she added, “I’m confident that we not only can expand access to advanced medical technology among a population that otherwise might not have this access, but that we also can expand our knowledge regarding how kids optimally recover from traumatic brain injury.”Earlier this year – prior to being named a Visiting Scientist – HMRI invited Dr. Ward to serve as a guest speaker. The topic of her well-attended presentation was, “Evidence-Based Practices in Community Mental Health for Youth: Traversing the Science-Practice Gap using the Managing and Adapting Practice System.” Prior to joining Hathaway-Sycamores, Dr. Ward held the position of Training Director for Practicewise, LLC, where she was charged with training more than 1,000 therapists nationwide in the Managing and Adapting Practice System for Evidence-Based Practice.Dr. Ward earned her Ph.D. and Master of Science degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and completed a dual residency in Pediatric and Community Child Psychology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Additionally, Dr. Ward completed post-doctoral fellowships at the University of Hawaii-Manoa and the University of California, Los Angeles.
