This is a house for a single family, which consists of a couple and their daughter, in a suburb of Tokyo. This project attempts to allow the family to flexibly change their way of living in one house as the daughter grows older. Generally speaking, the change of the relationship between parents and their children often seems to be caused by the children’s growth as the parents rarely change their way of life once they established it. Save this picture!Courtesy of upsetters architectsTo achieve an easy change of the uses, a mass of space for the daughter was inserted to a simple wooden two-storied house. The inner space of this house can be divided into two parts: one for the whole family to live and one for the daughter to grow up. The interior details were designed in order to attain the sensuous separation between the two parts. Save this picture!Courtesy of upsetters architectsThe part for the daughter has a mezzanine room, which can be accessed from the first floor and used by the couple for working. The daughter, who has just entered the elementary school, can go up to the room by using the desk and bookshelves. As she grows up, she will like to be alone rather than to actively interact with her parents and may finally leave this house to live on her own. This house is intended to permit such flexibility so that she can choose how to interact with her family during her growth. Save this picture!Courtesy of upsetters architectsTo the west of the site, there is just a parking lot and nothing else disturbing the view from the house. The large window frames the fine view through the entrance hall with a double-height so that they can enjoy it even from the inside, which is comfortable both with privacy and spaciousness.Save this picture!Courtesy of upsetters architectsProject gallerySee allShow lessLászló Z.

RSF condemns raids on two independent Belarusian media outlets


first_img Organisation Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News Ever since major anti-government demonstrations in the spring of 2017, the Belarusian authorities have stepped up efforts to control media coverage, blocking leading news websites, adopting an even more draconian media law and subjecting independent journalists to an unprecedented wave of fines. “It’s a shame that the authorities are using BelTA to prevent our independent news agency from doing its work,” BelaPAN editor-in-chief Iryna Lewshyna told RSF. “BelaPAN has legally used BelTA information available in open access and always cited it with references and hyperlinks to the state agency’s original reports.” RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says August 7, 2018 RSF condemns raids on two independent Belarusian media outlets Receive email alerts The Investigative Committee accuses people working with these two media outlets and the scientific publishing house Belarusskaya Nauka of illegally accessing the dispatches of the government news agency BelTA by using a subscriber’s account and password. Access to BelTA’s dispatches are reserved for subscribers for the first 15 minutes after being posted online. Follow the news on Belarus “These raids, which compromise the confidentiality of journalistic sources, are out of all proportion to the charges,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “It is hard to see them as anything other that attempts to intimidate leading independent media outlets at a time of growing harassment of critical journalists.

Two Norwegian journalists turned back on arrival in El Aaiún


first_img RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Help by sharing this information Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa News April 28, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today accused the Moroccan authorities of “administrative manipulation” after two Norwegian journalists were turned back on their arrival on 24 October at El Aaiún airport in Moroccan-controlled Western Sahara because they did not have press visas.Anne Torhild Nilsen and Radmund Steinsvag had requested visas at the Moroccan embassy in Oslo in January without getting a response. Instead of openly refusing to give journalists visas, the Moroccan authorities often sit on applications indefinitely.“These two journalists, who are known for their coverage of Western Sahara, have once again been the victims of the Moroccan government’s bad faith,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Any pretext will do in order to obstruct their work. They were prevented from working more than a year ago when making a documentary about the human right situation in the region.”When contacted by Reporters Without Borders, the Moroccan embassy in Oslo said it sent their visa applications to Rabat and was still waiting for a reply. The embassy said the decision whether to issue a visa to a journalist “depends on many criteria” but did not say what they were.Nilsen and Steinsvag arrived in El Aaiún, the capital of Western Sahara, on a flight from Las Palmas in the Canary Islands but were stopped by immigration officials, who checked with their superiors and then told them to return to Las Palmas on the same plane and submit a visa request there. The plane’s departure was delayed until the two journalists had reboarded.Nilsen said: “The Moroccan ploy of not responding to journalists’ visa requests is very clever. There is little you can do when they do not respond. We cannot denounce them because they have not told us were are banned from entering Morocco. A definitive ‘no’ would clearly show that impartial observers are not welcome and that the regime has things to hide.” to go further October 25, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two Norwegian journalists turned back on arrival in El Aaiún News Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Newscenter_img Receive email alerts Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara RSF_en NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say June 8, 2021 Find out more News Organisation Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists April 15, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The Division Bench comprising Justice Sangeet Lodha and Justice Rameshwar Vyas noted that the Additional Advocate General has already filed a counter affidavit on behalf of the State Government. However, the counsel appearing for the Union of India has sought some more time to file its reply. “Learned counsel appearing for the respondent-Union of India seeks three weeks’ further time to file counter to the additional submissions filed on behalf of Pakistan Minority Migrants. Time prayed for is allowed,” the order stated. The case pertains to a suo moto case registered by the High Court in the year 2017, concerned by the plight and predicaments of persons belonging to minorities in Pakistan as well as Bangladesh, being discriminated for socio-economic and political reasons, who migrated to India seeking shelter in India. The case revolves around issuance of temporary ration cards and extension of NORI (no objection to return to India) visa for such migrants. [NORI visa, migrants are permitted to visit their country for a period of 60 days.] In the case at hand, the issue is that many migrants are not being permitted to return to India as their visas have expired. Related developments It is significant to note that during the pendency of the petition, the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act came into force on January 10, 2020, liberalizing the grant of citizenship for non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan who had entered India before December 31, 2014. Pursuant to this, the Amicus curie argued before the Court that ‘minority refugees’ should either be provided temporary ration cards or they should be allowed free ration until framing of Rules under the CAA. Meanwhile, Government has extended the time period stipulated for framing of the said rules. Case Title: Suo Moto v Union of India & Anr. Click Here To Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more


Exploration of Ellsworth Subglacial Lake: a concept paper on the development, organisation and execution of an experiment to explore, measure and sample the environment of a West Antarctic subglacial lake


first_imgAntarctic subglacial lakes have, over the past few years, been hypothesised to house unique forms of life and hold detailed sedimentary records of past climate change. Testing this hypothesis requires in situ examinations. Thedirect measurement of subglacial lakes has been considered ever since the largest and best-known lake, named Lake Vostok, was identified as having a deep water-column. The Subglacial Antarctic Lake Environments (SALE)programme, set up by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) to oversee subglacial lakes research, state that prior exploration of smaller lakes would be a ‘‘prudent wayforward’’. Over 145 subglacial lakes are known to exist in Antarctica, but one lake in West Antarctica, officially named Ellsworth Subglacial Lake (referred to hereafter as Lake Ellsworth), stands out as a candidate for early exploration. A consortium of over 20 scientists from sevencountries and 14 institutions has been assembled to plan the exploration of Lake Ellsworth. An eight-year programme is envisaged: 3 years for a geophysical survey, 2 years for equipment development and testing, 1 year for field planning and operation, and 2 years for sample analysis anddata interpretation. The science experiment is simple in concept but complex in execution. Lake Ellsworth will be accessed using hot water drilling. Once lake access is achieved, a probe will be lowered down the borehole and into the lake. The probe will contain a series of instruments to measure biological, chemical and physicalcharacteristics of the lake water and sediments, and will utilise a tether to the ice surface through which power, communication anddata will be transmitted. The probe will pass through the water column to the lake floor. Theprobe will then be pulled up and out of the lake, measuring its environment continually as this is done. Once at the ice surface, any water samples collected will be taken from the probe for laboratory analysis (to take place over subsequent years). The duration of the science mission, fromdeployment of the probe to its retrieval, is likely to take between 24 and 36 h. Measurements to be taken by the probe will provide data about the following: depth, pressure, conductivity and temperature; pH levels; biomolecules (using life marker chips); anions (using a chemical analyzer); visualisation of the environment (using camerasand light sources); dissolved gases (using chromatography);and morphology of the lake floor and sediment structures (using sonar). After the probe has been retrieved, a sediment corer may be dropped into the lake to recover material from the lake floor. Finally, if time permits, a thermistor string may be left in the lake water to taketime-dependent measurements of the lake’s water column over subsequent years. Given that the comprehensive geophysical survey of the lake will take place in two seasons during 2007–2009, a two-year instrument and logistic developmentphase from 2008 (after the lake’s bathymetry has been assessed) makes it possible that the exploration of Lake Ellsworth could take place at the beginning of the next decade.last_img read more
