In a speech in London, Sentance said: “It is the right response to an economy which is growing but experiencing persistent above-target inflation. It would reduce the risk of a future shock to confidence if current above-target inflation does become more deeply embedded and interest rates then need to rise more sharply to combat it,” he said.At a time when many economists and policymakers are debating the need for further quantitative easing, and downplaying the UK’s high inflation, Sentance’s continued hawkish tone sets him even further apart from his fellow Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) members. He also warned that the risk of a loss of both confidence in the inflation target and the MPC’s credibility appeared to be increasing. “We have seen two major spikes in inflation in the last two years. These repeated episodes risk eroding confidence that UK policymakers remain committed to low and stable inflation.” Wednesday 13 October 2010 8:22 pm Share Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndolast_img read more

The plot is located in the historical city centre of Granollers and placed into an urban fabric of dwellings between party walls. The available space is narrow and elongated, only 6.5 m wide; and accessible from two streets. Owing to the dilapidated state of the existing building, only the main façade, reasonably well preserved offering a certain heritage value,could be maintained.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe desire of the owners was to differentiate two zones in the house: the domestic area, where the daily family life had to take place; and a secondary area, quite and isolated from the first, functionally independent to be used indistinctly as a living room or to welcome occasional guests as well as organizing meals and gatherings.According to planning regulation in street alignment the partition in two areas along the plot appears automatically.The domestic area is placed towards the main street, while the west side of the plot, isolated and separated by the central garden, becomes a segregated zone for vehicle access.Save this picture!SectionThe east-west orientation of the plot and the narrowness of the access streets made it difficult to achieve a good solar gain throughout the street façades. This circumstance, added to the difficulties to achieve privacy in the ground floor, led us to move back the building from the front street line, creating access patios both sides of the house.  These patios allow upper solar gain and at the same time create transition spaces, both physically between the street and the house, and between outdoor and indoor climate. Semi covered and practicable spaces with retractable roofs tops allow capturing energy during winter time as well as ventilation through summer. This way both, pedestrian entrance from main central street and vehicles access from the opposite side are solved, avoiding typical secondary and often neglected spaces that are often generated by this kind of uses.  The qualities of privacy, light, space and thermal comfort of these spaces allow the house to be used and perceived from end to end, without any hidden or residual space. These bioclimatic spaces become the first step of a sequence of areas linking one street to the other offering all along a great variety of conditions, characteristics and properties clearly differentiated among themselves. The addition of this sequence of spaces and thermal conditions creates a ground floor 53 m long totaling 345 m² dedicated to the most frequent and collective use of the house. It works at the same time as a long continuous hallway, giving access to the private and service areas of the house located in the upper floor and the basement, respectively.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaEach one of the rooms was individually treated yet carefully connected with the next one, clearly identifying the specific use of each space being all, at the same time, part of a whole. This approach helps exterior spaces to achieve the quality of a living space, therefore becoming one more room of the house. This way, this main ground floor combines different interior rooms, lower or higher roofs, longer, semi-exterior covered and bioclimatic rooms as well as covered and uncovered outdoor rooms.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe sequence of spaces creates some kind of ambiguity about what is an interior or exterior space. At the same time, outdoor spaces are intentionally differentiated, so the presence of greenery and natural ceramic helps creating genuine landscape impressions in a plot without views.   The organization, based on sequenced spaces, is totally related to the structural system of the house, opting consequently for a walling system that materially reinforces the typology of the house. Load bearing walls embrace every space limiting both the size as well as the proportion of the openings between spaces in such a way that the structure drastically conditions the experience and perceptions while in the house. Variety of ceramic materials, different skin textures, walls thickness and the capacity for self regulation of humidity and thermal inertia are experiences identifying every space typology. Space is the structure and the structure configures the space.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaRelationship between different structural units produces discontinuities that need to be solved, becoming as an opportunity to organize brick masonry and creating post-compressed beams where solid brick layers will be reinforced. Load bearing walls are stratified in strips between ledges and lintels creating a gradient of densities from the thinner and more solid pieces in the ground floor, to the thicker and perforated pieces of the upper floors. Diverse structural requirements of the masonry work produce different rhythms and textures achieving new expressivities.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaMaterials and spaces distribution prioritizes optimal passive behavior of the house, starting from bioclimatic patios that not only ensure thermal stability between 15 and 25ºC, an intermediate and improved climate, but also reducing the energy demand of the spaces directly related with those patios. The structural system and the double brick wall facade, filled with a 10cm isolating wood fiber, guarantee a very good relation between the thermal isolation and the indoor thermal inertia.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe solar protection elements hung from the exterior brick wall preventing thermal bridges yet disassociated from the window opening, as a secondary and more dynamic element, a circumstantial addition suitable to be changed or replaced over the years.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaFinally the house is climatized by radiant systems linked to a geothermal system to allow passive exchange with the ground. Additional to the radiant floors, metallic sheet composite-slabs -structures activated by the ground working as large radiators or radiant surfaces- help dissipating the heat during summer. This high internal inertia linked to the ground temperature allows achieving a very stable thermal behavior over the seasons with the lowest energetic consumption.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Submissions: Archonic Magazine #2 “Disassemble”Architecture NewsRT Residence / Jacobsen ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeHARQUITECTESOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGranollersHousesSpainPublished on January 21, 2015Cite: “House 1014 / H Arquitectes” 21 Jan 2015.

Mexican journalist seeking asylum still in detention at US border

first_img WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Americas Help by sharing this information News May 5, 2017 Mexican journalist seeking asylum still in detention at US border Mendez fled Guerrero after receiving death threats following an article he published exposing police misconduct. He hoped to find safety and refuge in the United States. Mendez has been in detention since February 5th, 2017. Yesterday RSF received an update from Mendez’s attorney, Carlos Spector, that ICE has for a second time denied his request to be released under parole on the grounds that Mendez “does not have substantial ties to the community.” On the contrary, Mendez has received an exceptional outpouring of support from the El Paso community, including from a local priest who has put his residence at Martin’s disposal should he be freed, as well as multiple community, journalism and press freedom organizations who have expressed grave concern over Martin’s detention, and have rallied behind his release. A harrowing letter from Mendez details the horrors of the detention center he is being held in. The following is an excerpt: “I have seen discrimination, abuse and humiliation from the very first day I set foot in this place. They transferred me to a detention center called West Texas Detention Facility located in the city of Sierra Blanca, Texas. In this place, I experienced the worst days of my life. It is known by the detainees as “el gallinero” (the henhouse) since the barracks resemble a stable for livestock or chickens, designed for approximately 60 people but currently housing more than 100 individuals, who are exposed to all kinds of diseases and who don’t have access to adequate medical attention. “The henhouse” of Sierra Blanca is small, with metal bunks, worn-out rubber mattresses, wooden floors, bathrooms with the walls covered in green and yellow mold, weeds everywhere and snakes and rats that come in the night. The guards look at the detainees with disgust on their faces and everything you say to them is ignored. There is very little food and all they tell you is that it is enough to survive. It is martyrdom to land in this place. Honestly, it is hell.”RSF calls on ICE to immediately free Mendez, who has been held without charge for almost 90 days.Mexico ranks 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The United States ranks 43rd. Mexico is now the deadliest country for journalists in the Western Hemisphere.

RSF calls for the release of South Korean journalist jailed for defamation

first_img News August 18, 2020 – Updated on August 29, 2020 RSF calls for the release of South Korean journalist jailed for defamation November 11, 2020 Find out more Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world Receive email alerts News News November 19, 2020 Find out more [Editor’s Note] Considering that this statement, originally published on 18th August 2020, contained good faith but erroneous interpretations, we have since modified certain paragraphs. On all continents, Reporters Without Borders is calling for the repeal of legal provisions that make defamation punishable with custodial sentences. Calling for the release of Woo Jong-chang, under this principle, does not therefore amount to endorsing his allegations or of course the lack of fact-checking.South Korean journalist and political commentator Woo Jong-chang was sentenced on 17th July to eight months’ imprisonment for defamation by the Seoul Northern District Criminal Court and imprisoned for failing to prove the accuracy of his allegations. In a video posted on YouTube, he implied that the corruption trial of former President Park Geun-hye in 2016 could have been influenced by a dinner between a presidential official, who was later appointed Minister of Justice, and one of the judges in charge of the trial.“Reporters Without Borders is not opposed to the existence of laws punishing defamation, but the South Korean law which makes it a crime punishable by deprivation of liberty does not comply with international standards”, insists Cédric Alviani, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia bureau head. “This is not to justify the publication of unverified allegations, but to prevent the risk of a prison sentence that could dissuade journalists from publishing accurate facts when they are unable to provide evidence publicly”.South Korea, ranked 42nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index, is a parliamentary democracy that respects freedoms but punishes defamation by up to seven years in prison. Organisations across the world that defend freedom of speech oppose such legal provisions.

Man pleads guilty to intoxication manslaughter

first_img Pinterest Local NewsCourts David Morin, 37, of Andrews An Andrews man pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to running over and killing a 38-year-old man with a Chevrolet Silverado more than four years ago. David Morin, 37, pleaded guilty in the 161st District Court of Judge John Smith to the charges of intoxication manslaughter with a vehicle, manslaughter, and failure to stop and render aid, second degree felonies, and was sentenced to serve 20 years in prison. As part of the plea deal, District Attorney Bobby Bland said the charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon was dropped. Police reported at the time they originally received a call of a car-pedestrian accident on the evening of Nov. 11, 2014, in the 8700 block of the Andrews Highway service road. Officers later ruled the death of the victim, Jonel Olivas, as suspicious based off of witness statements, police previously stated. Witnesses told police there was some sort of disturbance at a 7-Eleven gas station, but it was unclear how it started or what it was about, and it was unknown whether Morin and Olivas knew each other of if they arrived in the same vehicle. After learning both Olivas and Morin were from Andrews, Morin was found and charged by the Andrews Police Department following a traffic stop. Morin will be eligible for parole in 10 years. Court records show Adrian Chavez was his attorney.

UK backs policy words with action

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. UK backs policy words with actionOn 8 Jan 2002 in Personnel Today UK employers are more likely to have written HR strategies than most oftheir European counterparts, research shows. Current UK levels of formal strategy development compare favourably withEuropean counterparts, according to a survey by Cranet. The leaders in developing formal HR strategies include Sweden, theNetherlands, Switzerland, Norway, Turkey, and the UK (see chart). Well below average are Germany and Austria, with only three out of every 10workplaces having written HR strategies. HR strategy development involves a combination of developing a written HRstrategy in line with the corporate strategy, as well as developing specific HRpolicies. Looking back over the last decade, UK organisations have seen the level ofwritten mission statements steadily rise to 83 per cent. However, using these figures as a benchmark, it is evident with only 61 percent of UK organisations having a written HR strategy that they have notembraced this element of formal strategy development to the same extent. A further formalisation of HR strategy is the development of specificpolicy, which in turn acts as formal guidelines for practice. In the UK, the areas most commonly addressed with policy are equalopportunity/diversity at 88 per cent and training and development at 83 percent, followed by recruitment and selection reaching 77 per cent. This should be particularly encouraging to those organisations working tofurther the management of diversity in UK workplaces, which have generallyargued that formalisation is the first step towards progress. In comparison to the UK, organisations in other European countries aregenerally less likely to develop written policies for HR. However, specific leaders in policy writing include the Netherlands, withthe highest proportion of organisations with written HR policies for pay andrecruitment, and Sweden for equal opportunities.
