Day Care and Elderly Residential Centre / CVDB arquitectos

first_imgArchDaily Day Care and Elderly Residential Centre / CVDB arquitectos photographs:  Diogo BurnayPhotographs:  Diogo BurnayText description provided by the architects. The project is located between in an urban area with a residential neighbourhood mainly with social housing for low income families uphill and an area with various public buildings at the lower part of the valley. The elderly day centre is in between these rather different social, programmatic and physical realities, thus celebrating both its private and public character. The building presents itself as a counterpoint to the architectural character of the existing housing neighbourhood and therefore it tries to establish s strong sense of architectural identity for the existing communities, through its particular coloured and textured materials. The 60 dwellings are set out in two rows facing east-west on four interconnected floors. The spatial sequences of the circulation and of the voids in the central area are part of a bioclimatic strategy which creates several meeting points for people to talk and allow vertical transparency between floors. Conceptually this space will be sufficiently flexible to allow residents to come to feel at home in the place they live in. the ground floor is constructed by black slate volumes as a counterpoint to the transparent large glazed areas which accommodate the building’s social and most public spaces. On the outside, the private garden, which is a social meeting point of the inhabitants of the Centre, appears as if were a visual extension of the public space as it can be opened to the public as well. The building/garden seeks to fit in between the various urban tensions that are present in the landscape.Project gallerySee allShow lessRAIC 2011 Awards of ExcellenceArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticlesProject locationAddress:Oeiras, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

Calls for solidarity with Lebanon, where freedom was murdered

first_img News February 2, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Calls for solidarity with Lebanon, where freedom was murdered LebanonMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts News Lebanon : Violence against reporters becoming more frequent in Lebanon French TV broadcaster Christine Ockrent yesterday hosted a Reporters Without Borders evening of solidarity with Lebanon, where newspaper journalists Samir Kassir and Gebran Tueni were murdered last year and Lebanese TV presenter May Chidiac was maimed by a bomb. RSF_en Help by sharing this information January 14, 2021 Find out more LebanonMiddle East – North Africa News French TV broadcaster Christine Ockrent yesterday hosted a Reporters Without Borders evening of solidarity with Lebanon, where newspaper journalists Samir Kassir and Gebran Tueni were murdered last year and Lebanese TV presenter May Chidiac was maimed by a bomb.Relatives of the victims and leading French and Lebanese figures took part in the event, held in the Orsay Museum auditorium in Paris, and paid homage to the victims.Tueni’s daughter, Nayla Tueni, Kassir’s widow, Gisèle Khoury, Chidiac’s sister, Micheline Chidiac Baaklini, former French ministers Michel Barnier and Bernard Kouchner, former Lebanese culture minister Ghassan Salamé, writer Amin Maalouf and Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard talked about these politically committed journalists and appealed to the public in France and the rest of the world to show support so that their deaths should not be in vain. Franco-Lebanese pianist Abdel Rahman El Bacha gave a recital in their memory.Ockrent opened the evening by stressing the strength of the ties of friendship and respect between Lebanon and France.Tueni, who is a journalist at her father’s newspaper, An-Nahar, said he was “the man who said out loud what hundreds of thousands of Lebanese were thinking to themselves.” His killers, she said, had wanted to silence someone who was telling his compatriots: “We, Christians and Muslims. . . united until death for the freedom and solidarity of our Lebanon.” This was a much-repeated slogan during the Beirut spring of March 2005.Khoury, a presenter at the TV station Al Arabiya, called her late husband, Kassir, “a martyr of the palace of the word,” saying he spent all his life relating what was happening in Beirut. He was full of praise for a “modern and tolerant Beirut, a city in love with freedom, which wanted to be sovereign and free of any external meddling.” She added that she expected a lot from the French investigation into his death.Baaklini read out a message from her sister, Chidiac, who could not attend herself because yesterday evening she was undergoing her 21st operation since last September’s bomb attack.Former French foreign minister Barnier said he was impressed by these “two journalists who stood up and put their lives at risk in order to participate in the awakening of an entire people, in order to demand legitimate sovereignty and freedom for their country.”Kouchner reiterated his faith in justice, stressing that even if it “is sometimes slow, it is tenacious, and the guilty will be pursued and arrested.”Salamé appealed for action, pointing out that, “the two journalists were not killed by stray bullets, they were clearly identified and their death came about because they were the bearers of a message.” He added that “political assassination must not be a weapon of government.”Maalouf compared Lebanon to a rose bush: “If you get close to the flowers, you can scratch your hands and produce blood. But even if that happens, take the time to caress the flowers.” He also called his country a synthesis of the best and the worst. “Lebanon found its reason for existence in the mosaic of its inhabitants, cultural diversity and free expression, but with the war it entered an era of communal tension, withdrawal and destruction,” Maalouf said, adding, “we must ensure that this era is just the thorn that announces the beauty of the next flowers.” Ménard said: “The injuries inflicted on Lebanon have a particular impact because of its historic friendship with France but also, in these three cases, because of Reporters Without Borders’ very close ties with Gebran Tueni and Samir Kassir.” Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” February 4, 2021 Find out more to go further Lebanese journalist found shot dead in car Follow the news on Lebanon Organisation News November 11, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

If anything should be learned from that contentious experience, it is that the City and the Police Department are better served by prompt release of information on police shootings rather than their suffering a thousand cuts by battling to keep the information bottled up but then ultimately having to yield to public pressure or court orders.Body Cameras are supposed to serve transparency and public trustLater this year, Pasadena police officers will begin wearing body cameras while on duty. The cameras will record the daily activities of officers while they interact with the community they serve. The U.S. Department of Justice contributed to the cost of Pasadena’s body worn cameras for the stated purpose of “building trust and transparency between law enforcement and the communities they serve.” In order for the citizenry to be kept fully informed of the activities of Pasadena police officers and to maintain trust in the Department, they must be given access to the videos of the critical incidents recorded by the body cameras – i.e., any incident involving the use of force and any incident concerning which there is a citizen complaint against a police officer. If the public is denied access to the videos of critical incidents, the body cameras will not be serving their intended trust-building and transparency purposes.The Public Records Act “investigative records” conundrumIn the absence of being designated law enforcement “investigative records,” body camera videos would be a “public record” under the California Public Records Act and could be obtained within 10 days by the press or the public filing a public records act request. If they are designated as “investigative records,” they are exempt from disclosure under the Public Records Act.  Keeping videos confidential prior to the completion of both criminal and administrative investigations is a legitimate law enforcement interest for the same reason that witness statements and other evidence should be kept confidential during investigations – i.e. witnesses, including suspects and victims, should give their pure recollection without it being contaminated by other witnesses or evidence. So how does the public interest in transparency and trust get balanced against that legitimate law enforcement interest?Some cities are deeming camera videos “investigative records” as a way to defeat the purposes of transparency and public trust and to avoid releasing dash and body camera videos forever, even after investigations are over. Some cities take the position that public release of dash and body camera video is subject to the discretion of the Police Chief because, even if a police department deems a body camera video an exempt investigative record, the Police Chief can still waive the exemption and release the video.But even leaving the decision to release body camera videos to the discretion of the Police Chief does not build trust and transparency between law enforcement and the communities they serve. As this community painfully learned in the aftermath of the tragic shooting of Kendrec McDade, withholding information from the public about critical police incidents destroys trust and transparency between law enforcement and the community. The subject of the investigative records exemption in the McDade case was not a video. It was the Report of the OIR Group, the Independent Police Auditors hired by the City to audit the Department’s criminal and administrative investigations of the McDade shooting. The City’s decision to withhold the Report for over two years before it waived the investigative records exemption (and released a redacted version of the Report) simply prolonged the acrimonious and divisive public debate over the incident. When Pasadena released the LeRoy Barnes OIR Group Report shortly after the completion of the investigations, the community quickly addressed it and moved on without the acrimony and divisiveness when the McDade Report was so slow in coming out. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s decision to withhold the video of the Laquan Jackson shooting for 13 months had a similar result to the McDade delay.Balancing the interests by disclosure after sufficient time for the investigations completionThere is a better way. Assemblyman Bill Quirk (D-Hayward) has introduced legislation that would not leave the decision to the discretion of the Police Chief but rather would allow body camera videos of critical incidents to be released within 60 days. 60 days should be sufficient time to complete all investigations. (The McDade administrative investigation was not done until nearly a year after the shooting, but there seems to be no reason that it had to be delayed that long.) The 60 day period could be tweaked if it could be demonstrated that it is not reasonable for all investigations to be completed within 60 days.We urge Pasadena’s decisionmakers to adopt a policy that videos from police cameras of critical incidents are investigative records for a specified period of time sufficient to complete the criminal and administrative investigations – probably for 60 days. After that period, the videos should be deemed to no longer be investigative records but rather be accessible to the press and public pursuant to a Public Records Act Request.If the Pasadena Police Department adopts a progressive and thoughtful policy for body worn cameras, which includes a guarantee of eventual public access to videos of critical incidents, it will be a “win-win” for the Department and the community. The alternative is a road no one should want – i.e., continuous re-runs of battles like the long battle over release of the McDade Report which only increase the public distrust of the City and the Police Department by always putting the City and the police on the side against transparency.Skip Hickambottom and Dale Gronemeier are local civil rights attorneys who have represented McDade’s mother and Pasadena Area police oversight activists in getting release of the OIR Report on the McDade shooting.

Those awards, coupled with the two professional awards and the student award that Brown received from the Dothan Advertising Federation, brought his ADDY total to seven. Skip “That was the beginning. I like to do posters, but I enjoy all aspects of advertising. The purpose of advertising is to communicate an idea and to send a message that will last. It’s a challenge to communicate aesthetically and to create a design that will grab you.”For Brown and the other ADDY winners, the challenges of working in an industry that creates ideas to sell products are many and the opportunities are exciting.But he said the graphics design students at Troy University are well prepared to meet the challenges and take advantages of the opportunities that await them.Rob Drinkard, also of Troy, received two silver ADDY Awards from the Montgomery Advertising Federation.Another Troy native Tyler Percy received a Gold Student Award from Dothan.Turgay Tuncer took Student Best of the Show honors and received a $500 scholarship from Beasley Allen Attorneys and received the Best Concept for an Interactive Piece Award and the Mosaic Award for Poster Campaign.

Howard. “That’s an indication that I can be successful on the next level and it will be good to have ADDY Awards, especially professional ADDY Awards, on my resume when I start applying for a job.”Brown does freelance work on the side. He and a friend, Ben Bloodworth of Auburn, have a small graphic design business, Jump Dog Studio, and two of the professional ADDYs were awarded to Jump Dog Studio, one for a brochure for Music South and the other for the JB Head Construction logo.Brown will graduate in December and his plans are to work for a design firm for a while and, hopefully, one day own a graphic design firm of his own.“I’ve always loved to draw but I didn’t get interested in graphic design until I started looking at concert posters,” he said.

Missing the buzz of corporate lfe

first_imgMissing the buzz of corporate lfeOn 14 May 2002 in Personnel Today I am a careers adviser considering a move into graduate recruitment in theprivate sector. I find the work in careers very interesting and contact withstudents very rewarding. However, I miss the buzz of corporate life (I havethree years previous non-HR commercial experience). What might be a logicalstep into the private sector? How much would blue-chip corporations (especiallylaw, investment banking and professional services) value my background? Whatcan I do to make myself more employable? Doug Knott, senior consultant, Chiumento In your job applications to blue-chip corp-orations, you need to highlightthe benefits of your experience – how your understanding of the values andcareer aspirations of students could assist the organisation to attract andretain highly-talented graduates. To make yourself more employable, improve your knowledge of the selectiontechniques used by large employers to recruit graduates. It may also be worthobtaining a qualification in psychometric profiling which is often used as partof the graduate recruitment process. Also consider researching recent studies into graduate recruitment andretention. Have a look at the main graduate internet recruitment sites andensure you understand the ‘market rate’ in terms of salary and benefitspackages for newly-qualified graduates. This will improve your ability todiscuss with confidence at interview the issues involved in graduaterecruitment. Philip Spencer, consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodes You obviously find your current role interesting and rewarding. Given yourlack of recruitment experience you may find it difficult to move straight intoa graduate recruitment role. Organisations in the sectors you have mentioned tend to have extensiveformalised graduate recruitment programmes. They typically appoint graduaterecruitment managers/officers who have demonstrable recruitment experience andan understanding of the sector. Options open to you would be to gain direct recruitment experience with aspecialist graduate recruitment consultancy. This would develop yourrecruitment experience while providing the vehicle to return to the privatesector. Alternatively, investigate whether there is scope or opportunity to move into a recruitment role with your current employer. With regards to professional qualifications to make yourself moremarketable, maybe you would consider studying for CIPD qualification. Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS consultancy You have to overcome a number of disadvantages if you wish to move intograduate recruitment. The negatives that will be picked up by prospectiveemployers include your lack of HR experience and your lack of recruitmentexperience. Your current role in the public sector may also be seen as anegative by blue-chip organisations. Organisations are always reviewing their graduate recruitment programmes.While the traditional way was the university milkround, this has been seen bymany as costly and ineffective. They are now looking at innovative ways ofattracting graduates – this is where you may find a niche. Your approach needsto combine business experience with your understanding of what people arelooking for in their career. You should also consider a professional qualification to make yourself moremarketable and show your commitment. The CIPD offers a Certificate inRecruitment, which may be a good place to start.

Huntley, Moss Lead No. 11 Utah over Idaho State, 31-0

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Tyler Huntley threw for 282 yards and three touchdowns and Zach Moss ran for 106 yards and another score in No. 11 Utah’s 31-0 victory over Idaho State on Saturday.In the first quarter, Moss passed Tony Lindsay for second place on Utah’s career rushing yards list.His 1-yard scoring plunge later in the quarter moved him into the No. 2 spot by himself in career rushing touchdowns at 27. On just 10 carries, Moss also recorded his 13th 100-yard rushing performance with 10:05 still left in the second quarter.Huntley completed 15 of 19 passes before leaving in the third quarter as Utah moved to 3-0 for the fifth time in the last six seasons.Through the first two games, Utah didn’t throw many long passes, but Huntley aired it out on his third pass — an 82-yard TD strike to Bryan Thompson that traveled 55 yards in the air.On Utah’s next possession, Huntley connected on a 60-yard pass to Brant Kuithe for another score.The lone first-half highlight for the Bengals was stopping the Utes on fourth down at the 1 when Huntley mishandled the snap on a sneak attempt.Utah was the only team in the FBS that had yet to commit a turnover or allow a sack this season until Britain Covey lost a fumble with 9:46 to play.The Utes have won all eight games they’ve played against the Bengals and the closest game was 24-0 in 1944.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Utes scored on their first four possessions and drove to the 1-yard-line on their fifth drive while holding the Bengals to 57 yards in the first half while most starters were still in the game. Considering the FCS competition, the gaudy statistics and lopsided score may not be enough to move the Utes up or even hold steady.THE TAKEAWAYIdaho State: The Bengals looked overmatched from the start and didn’t cross mid-field until the second half. Idaho State played both Matt Struck and Gunnar Amos but neither had much time to throw and often missed their targets.Utah: The Ute offense showed a few new formations and plays and completed a few downfield passes to gain a comfortable lead that allowed them to sit Moss midway through the second quarter. Other than 11 penalties and a fourth-quarter lost fumble, the Utes achieved their goal of playing clean and getting a host of second- and third-team players some experience. The defense bolstered its suffocating reputation.UP NEXTIdaho visits Northern Iowa next Saturday.The Utes open Pac-12 play at No. 24 Southern Cal on Friday.

Leading industry Anti Money Laundering firm wins royal approval
