House Sz is a residence designed for a couple in their thirties. The goal was to provide a living environment with a rich atmosphere that is open, inwards and out, through the implementation of two different courtyards.Save this picture!© Teruo MiyaharaRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)WindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0With four walls set at necessary intervals, the residence is divided into three major zones – private, public, and “plus alpha” zones –and each of these zones is segmented into individual spaces and functions using two courtyards and glass walls. The private zone is divided into the main bedroom, bathroom, courtyard, and hobby room, with the courtyard serving as a buffer to maintainprivacy. The public zone is comprised of the main room, courtyard, and garage, and extends across the front road to the foliage of the park. Here, the courtyard serves as an instrument to open the residence towards the surroundings. Meanwhile, the plus alpha zone through the centre of the residence, besides being the core circulation route that connects all the spaces, serves as a gallery with 30-metre wall space. The floor is laid with concrete slabs and coated with a glossy protective layer, giving the space a special ambience. It is as if it’s a mysterious cave that leads on and on, or a passage in Paris that guides people to new discoveries. Thus, we named this the “passage gallery.”Save this picture!© Teruo MiyaharaFurthermore, the roofs of both the private and public zones slope down towards the inner courtyard, designed so that the rooms can enjoy as much sky as possible. In particular, for the view of the trees in the park to the west of the dining room and living room, the garage roof is careful designed so it is as thin and unobtrusive as possible to provide the best scenery.Save this picture!© Teruo MiyaharaThe maple tree in the courtyard will provide different colours for each season, adding to the residents’ pleasure. So does the residence itself give pleasure? I hope that it is able to provide nearly as much happiness as nature can bring.Save this picture!© Teruo MiyaharaProject gallerySee allShow lessAir Force Village Chapel proposal / R.

An opposition newspaper banned, a managing editor forced into exile

first_img Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists July 8, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 An opposition newspaper banned, a managing editor forced into exile RSF_en News News News BangladeshAsia – Pacific February 26, 2021 Find out more to go further Receive email alerts Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detentioncenter_img Organisation Help by sharing this information February 22, 2021 Find out more May 19, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontiers – RSF) condemns the government’s decision to withdraw the publishing license of the opposition newspaper Dainik Uttarabanga Barta, just as the opposition has made a positive gesture in agreeing to sit in Parliament. “This affair throws new discredit on the commitments of Khaleda Zia’s government in favor of press freedom,” said Robert Ménard, general secretary of Reporters Without Borders. In a letter sent to Tariqul Islam, minister of information, the international press freedom organization called on the government to reverse this decision.Reporters Without Borders also asked for the reasons for the recent search of the offices of the magazine Linkbangla, which have apparently led the managing director to go into exile out of fear of being arrested. “In light of these two cases, one can question the credibility of the government criticism made concerning the last Reporters Without Borders report on the press freedom situation in Bangladesh, which warned about an increase in repression against private media,” said Robert Ménard.According to information obtained by the organisation, the government, on 5 July 2002, withdrew the publishing license of the local newspaper Dainik Uttarabanga Barta published in Natore (north of the country). The authorities criticized the newspaper for publishing an article, on 26 March, the day of the country’s independence, presenting prime minister Khaleda Zia as the opposition leader, and calling opposition leader Sheikh Hasina prime minister.Hanif Ali Sheikh, managing director of the newspaper and a local leader of the Awami League (opposition party), said that it was a mistake caused by incorrect data processing. He apologized, and published an erratum the following day on the front page of the newspaper. In spite of this correction, local officials filed charges against the publication. After Hanif Ali Sheikh made his explanations, the local administration decided not to withdraw the newspaper’s license. Three months later, following an injunction from the government in Dhaka, the local administration withdrew the newspaper’s license, in accordance with article 20(D) of the 1973 press law. The publisher called this a “political decision” and said he would appeal.In another case Monjurul Azim Palash, publisher of the magazine Linkbangla, decided to go into exile in Great Britain after receiving threats. The Dhaka offices of this magazine published for Bangladeshis living in Europe were searched by police. Police seized copies of the May-June 2002 issue, and questioned members of the journalist’s family. The reasons for this harassment are not known, but Palash told Reporters Without Borders that he was planning to hold a press conference in London.

‘Girl Power’ Fuels Running Club

first_imgBy Deirdre Higgins |FAIR HAVEN – “I feel good about myself, because we play a lot of games and I get a lot faster at running,” said Catalina Frank, 11, about the benefits of participating in her local Girls On the Run (GOTR) program.The program, part of a nationwide organization, encourages girls to lead a healthy and confident life, while integrating running as exercise. The national nonprofit focuses primarily on the wellness and happiness of adolescent girls and has spread to over 200 councils in 50 states.Girls on the Run participants at Fair Haven Fields. Photo by Deirdre HigginsMother and fellow runner, Sue Flynn, coaches the third- through eighth-grade girls from Fair Haven, Rumson and Little Silver in more than just running. “The girls learn about bullying, choosing their friends and core values, what you value in your friends and what you should value in yourself,” Flynn said. She empowers them to be the best person they can be and love themselves for who they are.The group spent the fall improving their running skills at Fair Haven Fields in preparation for a 5k race in Somerville on Nov. 19. “The running portion is fun for the girls and provides an outlet they may not have had before,” said Flynn. The race provided a tangible goal for the girls and helped them gain confidence through their accomplishments.“The 5K was really fun, it got me really pumped up,” said Catalina.With each practice, the girls had an opportunity to unite as a team and share words of encouragement and enthusiasm. Small compliments were happily accepted and beaming smiles graced their faces by the end of each practice, accompanied by a rousing group chant: “Girls on the run, girls on the run, girls on the run is so much fun!” Despite the obstacles the girls may have faced throughout the day, GOTR provided a concrete time for the girls to gain confidence and support each other.“We work on confidence and what we should and shouldn’t do in life,” said Catalina.While mainly focusing on lighthearted topics during the non-running portion of the practices, the group will sometimes broach a serious subject. After a recent run, Flynn asked the team how they feel when they see models and women in magazines, if the way they dress or look had an impact on the girls. The group members expressed mixed thoughts and feelings on the subject, ultimately concluding that each person is beautiful in their own way. One team member loudly proclaimed, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”With another successful season behind them, the runners are now equipped with a positive outlook and a personal confidence they may have not carried before. “I just really believe in the Girls On the Run program, how it can impact these girls and the message within it,” said Flynn.This article was first published in the Nov. 30-Dec. 7, 2017 print edition of the Two River Times.last_img read more

She quickly switched on the television while her phone was hopping and she watched the last few minutes of the show, refusing to believe the good news until she saw her name after the end credits of the programme.Kathleen then set about selecting who would play in her place. She is very close to her niece Annette, who lives in Strabane, Co. Tyrone, and both decided that Annette’s husband Christopher Boyce would take on the role. Christopher is more than happy to do this for his wife’s aunt and certainly did her proud, winning her €45,000 in cash.Christopher states that he has now scored himself some serious brownie points with Kathleen by winning her a good haul from the show.

But he’s as good as Ederson and Alisson using his left foot and right foot,” James told Goal.”David de Gea is, of course, the No 1, but I looked at Romero when Manchester United bought him and I was amazed at how good the guy is with his feet – then I saw an improvement in De Gea.”What you tend to find is when you’ve got two keepers or two players training with each other day in, day out, you start picking up positive habits from the other player.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

PRRD holding contest for residents to make a catchy tune against invasive

first_imgDAWSON CREEK, B.C. — When most residents think of daisies, they might think of the tune “(S)he loves me, (s)he loves me not,” but the Peace River Regional District wants residents to come up with a new jingle showing just what a menace daisies really are, and is offering a reward for the catchiest tune.The PRRD says that daisies, specifically Oxeye Daisy and Scentless Chamomile, are a plague since they are an invasive species and not native to the Peace. The BC Weed Control Act says that the plants are considered regionally noxious, out-of-control perennials that are costly to eradicate and decrease the value of agricultural products.PRRD Communications Manager Fran Haughian says that the Regional District has put daisies at the top of its list of most wanted invasive species this year. Because of this, the Regional District has started a contest for residents to come up with the best jingle to use as propaganda against the invasive plants. Any submitted jingle must include the phrases: “Scentless Chamomile,” “Oxeye Daisy,” “Destroy daisies,” and “Hand pull, place in clear bags and toss into the landfill.” Submissions are encouraged to include all pr parts of: “The flowers can be identified by white petals and yellow centres,” “Pull-Bag-Toss the plant,” and “Free to dump PRRD transfer station.”Haughian said that the composer of the winning jingle will be awarded a $250 gift certificate at a local music store in Dawson Creek or Fort St. John.For more details and contest rules, visit the PRRD’s Destroy Daisies contest web page: https://prrd.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/engage/invasive-plant-jingle-contest/2018-1-23_-Daisy_Jingle-_Contest-Rules_FNL.pdflast_img read more

Top ports record marginal upswing in FY19 cargo handling at 699 mt

first_imgNew Delhi: India’s 12 major ports recorded 2.90 per cent growth in cargo handling at 699.04 million tonnes (MT) in the just concluded fiscal, as per ports body IPA. The growth at these ports, that had handled 679.37 MT cargo in 2017-18, was driven mainly by higher handling of coal, fertilisers and containers. These ports, under the command of the Centre, had recorded 4.77 per cent growth in 2017-18 over the previous fiscal. The 12 major ports — Deendayal (erstwhile Kandla), Mumbai, JNPT, Marmugao, New Mangalore, Cochin, Chennai, Kamarajar (earlier Ennore), V O Chidambarnar, Visakhapatnam, Paradip and Kolkata (including Haldia) — handled 699.04 MT of cargo during 2018-19, as per latest data by the Indian Ports Association (IPA). Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalIncreased demand from various sectors including coal, containers, fertilisers and POL (petroleum, oil and lubricant) was the main reason behind the growth in traffic, IPA said. Coking coal volumes handled by the 12 ports surged by 14.25 per cent to 57.50 MT during the last fiscal, while thermal coal volumes rose 9 per cent. Finished fertiliser volumes saw a growth of 9.69 per cent during the fiscal. Containers recorded a growth of 8.84 per cent in terms of tonnage. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostAs per the figures, Kandla port handled the highest traffic volume at 115.40 MT during 2018-19, followed by Paradip (109.27 MT), JNPT (70.70 MT), Visakhapatnam (65.30 MT), Kolkata with Haldia (63.71 MT) and Mumbai (60.58 MT). Chennai port handled 53.01 MT of cargo while New Mangalore handled 42.50 MT. Volume of seaborne cargo is essentially in the nature of derived demand and is mainly shaped by the levels and changes in both global and domestic activity. The major ports handle about 60 per cent of the country’s total cargo traffic. Traffic handled by about 200 minor ports, either in the control of the state governments or private players, has been on the decline since 2014-15. “The share of major ports in traffic handled, which declined continuously up to 2014-15, is increasing since then. The share of major ports in traffic handled was 55 per cent in 2014-15 and increased to 58 per cent in 2017-18,” as per a report of the Ministry of Shipping.last_img read more

Football Signing Day 2017 is one for the record books with five

OSU coach Urban Meyer smiles during his press conference on National Signing Day on Feb. 1, 2017. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Assistant Sports DirectorOhio State coach Urban Meyer has championed recruiting. The Buckeye program has been known for recruiting and receiving commits from the state’s top football talents. Meyer, however, has done that and taken the program to new heights in recruiting across the country. His second-ranked 2017 class is a perfect example with the most out-of-state signees since he joined OSU.Eight of OSU’s nine early-enrollees were available to the media on Wednesday after team workouts. Here are three stories from National Signing Day.Meyer’s best class adds MunfordFive five-star, 14 four-star and two three-star recruits make up what many consider to be Meyer’s greatest recruiting class not just at OSU, but in his entire coaching career. The class had the most five-star signees in Meyer’s time at OSU. Twelve of the 21 new Buckeyes are ranked in the top five of their respective positions. The Buckeyes became richer on Wednesday with the addition of four-star offensive tackle Thayer Munford.The 21 players in the 2017 class are the fewest Meyer has ever had, but there’s reason for celebrating given the talent he brought in from across the nation, including the state of Texas. However, only 33 percent of the class came from the state of Ohio, which is not enough, Meyer said.“50 percent is kind of the mark that I’ve been trying to (meet). I keep it right in front of me and I stare at it and make sure that we’re doing right,” Meyer said. “I’m glad it worked out with Thayer. We had another spot saved if we wanted to go after an Ohio guy and it just didn’t materialize.”There were no surprises for OSU on Signing Day. Munford actually committed to the Buckeyes a couple days before, Meyer said. OSU targets Marvin Wilson and Jay Tufele signed with Florida State and University of Southern California, respectively.Now with 90 players on scholarship, counting sophomore punter Drue Chrisman who paid his own way in 2016, the Buckeyes have to cut down to 85 players by fall camp.Defensive backs readyThe OSU defensive back class is second to none. And that’s a good thing.With the early departures of cornerbacks Gareon Conley, Marshon Lattimore and safety Malik Hooker to the NFL draft, OSU had to replace its three key members in the secondary. However, Meyer is confident that the recruits in the secondary will help immediately.Jeffrey Okudah and Shaun Wade are the top two cornerbacks of the 2017 class and both could see the field immediately. Those two, cornerback Marcus Williamson and safety Isaiah Pryor enrolled early to get a leg up on the open positions.Wade was the Gatorade National Player of the Year. He and Okudah are taller than most cornerbacks in college, both at 6-foot-1, but have a similar size to former OSU cornerbacks Lattimore and Conley, who will all be in the NFL next season.“I know a spot is open,” Okudah said. “It’s all about competition and I know the best two corners will get on that field. It’s just whatever I make of it.”Wade and Okudah are in the running to start alongside junior cornerback Denzel Ward, who will likely have one of the starting positions in 2017. But the No. 1 junior college cornerback signee Kendall Sheffield has already had the college experience at Alabama, which qualifies him for the starting job.Brendon White’s positionOne of the few Ohio players in this class is Brendon White. He doesn’t have a true position right now, but is arguably the most versatile player in the class. His position is designated “athlete,” but he thinks of himself as a receiver.Meyer told White this offseason that the unexpected early departure of wide receiver Noah Brown left a spot for White. He has been playing on both sides of the ball in workouts and said he likes the comparisons of Darron Lee at linebacker and Michael Thomas at receiver.“It definitely helps (being versatile) because it helps coaches know that I can play different positions,” White said. “If I struggle at wide receiver, I can go to linebacker. If I struggle at linebacker, I can go to safety.”On top of that, White has deep ties in his family to OSU and expressed his interest of becoming a captain in his time at OSU. He has started to do that within the freshman class having been with the team during bowl practice.“When they first got here and the first move-in day was Jan. 9, I told them this warm-up they were about to do was going to be hard,” White said. “After the end of the warm-up, they thought that was our workout and so I was like, ‘We got way more than this.’ We’re doing better now.” read more

Ohio State womens volleyball takes home tournament title extends win streak to

Geoff Carlston scheduled tough for a reason. In an effort to prepare his team for Big Ten play, the Ohio State women’s volleyball coach tasked his squad with one of the hardest nonconference schedules in the country.Thus far, it’s safe to say the team has responded well.OSU took home its second straight tournament win over the weekend at the Blackbird Invitational in Brooklyn, New York, beating a pair of teams who came into the competition without a loss.On Friday, the No. 15 Buckeyes (8-1) took care of host Long Island University Brooklyn (0-7), before topping Syracuse (6-2) and No. 13 Arizona (8-1) on Saturday. After losing its season opener to Wyoming, OSU has now won eight straight matches, including three against top-15 opponents.Led by a strong defensive showing, OSU defeated previously unbeaten Arizona in four sets (25-22, 22-25, 25-22, 29-27) in its final match of the weekend.The contest proved to be a tough early-season test for Carlston’s squad, featuring 31 ties and 12 lead changes as neither team won a set by more than three points.Junior libero Valeria León came up big for the defense, helping the Buckeyes hold Arizona to a .173 attack percentage. León set a new career high with 35 digs, breaking her previous best of 32 which was set just a week earlier against Florida State. Her efforts also marked the second-best single-game total in OSU history, and the most in a four-set match.The Buckeyes also had 14 blocks against the Wildcats, tying a season high. Four Buckeyes picked up at least three total blocks, while nine different players had at least one. Senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson led the way with five blocks, while junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe had four.Senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell had her third double-double of the season against the Wildcats, with a team-leading 19 kills to go along with 10 digs. Freshman setter Taylor Hughes also had a double-double — her third in as many games and fourth on the season — via 24 assists and 10 digs.Saturday’s first match was a four-set OSU win over Syracuse (25-12, 23-25, 25-23, 25-18), who had also entered the tournament undefeated before losing twice.Campbell again led the Buckeyes in points with 27, picking up 23 kills, four blocks and two service aces. Sandbothe put up big numbers as well, with 25 points on 18 kills, eight blocks (four solo) and one ace.OSU’s two freshmen — setter Taylor Hughes and outside hitter Audra Appold — continued to establish themselves as key contributors with impressive performances against the Orange. Hughes had her second of three double-doubles on the weekend on 36 assists and 10 digs, and Appold nearly had one of her own with nine kills and 11 digs.León once more led all players in digs with 22, averaging 5.5 per set.The Buckeyes didn’t have much of a problem against winless LIU Brooklyn in their first game of the weekend, rolling to a win in three sets by a combined 31 points (25-17, 25-10, 25-17).OSU never trailed in the first set, but was slow out of the gate in the second as LIU Brooklyn grabbed an early 6-3 lead. The Buckeyes were able to gather themselves, however, closing the set on a 22-4 run.A pair of senior outside hitters led the OSU offense, as Campbell had 12 kills and Katie Mitchell tacked on 11 at a .450 attacking percentage. Sandbothe continued her hot start to the season with 13.5 points on nine kills, six blocks (one solo) and one ace.The freshmen again played a big role in a win as Hughes had her second career double-double with 35 assists and 10 digs, while Appold had eight kills and three blocks.León was named the Blackbird Invitational’s most valuable player after leading all players with 71 digs (6.5 per set). For a second straight weekend, she was joined by Sandbothe (38 kills, 17 blocks) and Campbell (54 kills, 23 digs) on an all-tournament team.OSU is scheduled to wrap up its nonconference schedule in the Golden Grizzlies Invitational next weekend, facing Eastern Illinois and Western Michigan on Sept. 18, and Oakland on Sept. 19. read more
