This project’s design theme was the consolidation and expansion of an existing house. The site for the project is located in Otopeni city, adjacent to Bucharest. It consists of a generous plot on which an old 100 sqm house was located. The house had a basement, ground floor, first floor and attic.Save this picture!SectionThe core of this project is the modern reinterpretation of the traditional pitched roof house, thus creating a dialogue between the two volumes, between past and present.  The first step was to bring out the old house, having it’s character preserved. The extension is reinterpreted in a contemporary shape, like a concrete origami attached to the old house. Seeking for a  visual and spatial dialogue between the two volumes, unity was sought.Save this picture!© Radu MalașincuThe aditional volume was designed as to contain an airy livingroom area, whilst the original house would incorporate the remaning  neccesary spaces for a family home. The two volumes were placed on a large wooden deck, in order to create continuity. An extention of the wooden deck also hosts the pool, the terrace and a large jardiniere. The joining point between the two volumes marks the entrance. One is guided by the protection of the concrete canopy followed by the trail of sunshine from the skylight, towards the insides of the house.Save this picture!© Radu MalașincuThe basement hosts a cellar and the utility room. The ground floor consists of the livingroom with its partially covered terrace in the extention area, togheter with the kitchen, dinning room, lounge, wardrobe and a bathroom, contained by the original house volume. The living room is a dynamic, high ceiling space, with clear, focused views towards the outside. The original building had a loft conversion, where one can find the master bedroom with a dressing area and bathroom, a guest bedroom and the children’s bedroom. From inside the children’s bedroom, through a ladder, a separate area used as a playroom can be accesed. This is positioned on top of the bathroom.Save this picture!© Radu MalașincuFor the exterior design, the following materials were used: grey folded metal sheets for the roof, exposed concrete, wood and recovered tiles from the original roof, used to decorate an external wall. For the interior design, the main used materials were: exposed concrete, protection mortar, wooden beams recovered from the original building, silver travertine plates and oak floors.Save this picture!© Radu MalașincuProject gallerySee allShow lessMoMA Appoints Sean Anderson as Associate Curator of Architecture and DesignArchitecture NewsStarting Your Own Practice: The Challenges and Rewards, According to ArchDaily ReadersArticles Share Year:  Houses Area:  180 m² Area:  180 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Architects: Lama Arhitectura Area Area of this architecture project Projects Romania ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard G3House / LAMA Arhitectura 2015 Photographs “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLama ArhitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOtopeniRomaniaPublished on December 01, 2015Cite: “G3House / LAMA Arhitectura” 01 Dec 2015.

Clearly by having national reach and local impact we hope we can sign up many national corporations to support the charity. Ultimately, as we do with Cash for Kids Radio Clyde, we’d like every pound raised to go directly to the children’s causes we support.”Dee Ford, Managing Director of Bauer Radio said:“It is our ambition to increase the donations to £7 million in 08/09 and ultimately to reach £10million by 2010.“We are absolutely delighted to have the support of Sir Tom Hunter in this venture and we are over the moon at his generous donation. He has long been associated with Cash for Kids through Radio Clyde and has done a great deal for the charity.”As part of this deal, Bauer has committed to continuing to underwrite £200,000 of the overall administration costs, as well as offering a staggering £1.5m of airtime to Cash for Kids per annum; a pledge of some £15m over the ten year period of the agreement.Dee added:“To have Sir Tom’s backing and his support really raises the profile of our charities and what we are trying to do across the UK. His generosity is very much appreciated and will guarantee that even more of the money we raise for the foreseeable future will go directly to the children who need it with even less being spent on administration. Ultimately, it is our goal to have all of our administration costs covered to ensure that all donations made by local radio station listeners will go directly to the children”“This new chapter in the life of the charities is about bringing them together and working in a more joined-up manner across the country. It will allow us to have a real consistency of brand throughout the UK“This is not about taking away local ownership as the way the charities are run will stay the same and the most important thing to remember is that all the money which is raised locally will still stay in the local area and will benefit local communities.”EndsIssued on behalf of Bauer by The BIG PartnershipFor further information please contact:Dawn Gibson at Bauer Radio on 01642 732547Kate McCheyne at The BIG Partnership on 0141 333 9585/07766076469 or [email protected] orGillian Hamilton at The BIG Partnership on 0141 333 9585/ 07734656676 or [email protected] to editorsThe Bauer Publishing Group is a worldwide media empire operating businesses across 14 countries. Bauer Radio Ltd; part of the Bauer Publishing Group 2008, is home to a growing network of no.1 commercial radio stations in all major markets in the UK.The Group takes a strategic approach to corporate, social responsibility and its reputation depends on effective implementation of policies and its responsibility in local, regional, national and international markets.Within the radio division, we are looking to bring greater focus and co-ordination to our activities and to make our CSR commitment more effective.We currently have 19 radio stations within the ‘big city’ portfolio, covering Scotland, Northern England and Ireland, each of which operates local charity initiatives for sick and underprivileged children; collectively we raised in excess of £4.5 million in 2007/08.It is our ambition to increase these donations to £7 million in 08/09 and ultimately to reach £10million by 2010.The Hunter Foundation is committing £ 4m over the next ten years, however as part of this agreement we are extending the term of our already existing agreement with Cash for Kids Radio Clyde for a further four years under this agreement.As part of this agreement a new Board will be created to oversee target delivery. The Hunter Foundation will have two Board seats that rotate between Sir Tom Hunter, Ewan Hunter, Paul Cooney and Sir John Orr.As well as local fundraising conducted by the local stations the above Board will also focus upon a national fundraising campaign.Ailie SempleAccount ExecutiveThe BIG Partnership5 Park Circus Place, Glasgow, G3 6AHTel: 0141 333 9585Mob: 07870916308Fax: 0141 333 BIG Partnership Group Ltd – The UK’s largest PR consultancy outside London (PR Week Annual Top 150 Survey, April 2008) About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Hoosier Delegation Headed for AFBF Meeting

first_img Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Hoosier Delegation Headed for AFBF Meeting Previous articlePork Producers Respond to Tyson Animal Care Standards AnnouncementNext articleFarm Bill Remaining Issues Keep Timeline Up in the Air Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Jan 9, 2014 Hoosier Delegation Headed for AFBF MeetingSeveral hundred Indiana farmers are headed to San Antonio, TX this weekend for the annual meeting for the American Farm Bureau Federation.  After enduring our January winter storms, the warm climate of Texas looks pretty inviting, says Andy Dietrick, Communications Director for the Indiana Farm Bureau, “About 240 Hoosier farmers will be heading to San Antonio to enjoy some warm weather but also to learn from other farmers and participate in policy decisions.” The Farm Bureau delegates will be approving Farm Bureau policy including possible compromises on Farm Bill issues, as well as setting policy for some new issues. Dietrick says farm data is likely to be a hot topic, “Data, how it is used and who owns it, will get a lot of floor time at the delegate session.” He added that drones will also be a topic that is talked about, “There are some great applications that can help agriculture but also questions about who owns the air space and who controls what is flying overhead at any given time.” Facebook Twitter Dietrick says, in addition, several Indiana farmers will be competing in national contests. Alan Duttlinger of Tippecanoe County is the winner of the Indiana Farm Bureau Young Farmer Discussion Meet and will compete in the national discussion meet competition in San Antonio. Duttlinger is originally from Lake County, where he grew up on a grain and livestock farm. He is a graduate of Lowell High School and has a bachelor’s in animal science from Purdue and a master’s in animal nutrition from Kansas State. He is a researcher at Indiana Packers Corp. in Delphi.  Two Indiana couples will be representing Hoosier farmers in other competitions. Nick and Julie Wenning of Decatur County won the Young Farmer Excellence in Agriculture award. The award is given to young farmers who do not derive the majority of their income on the farm but who are actively involved in Indiana Farm Bureau and agriculture.  LaPorte County’s Matt and Kristen Schafer won the Young Farmer Achievement Award for those who do derive the majority of their income from the farm.  SHARE Hoosier Delegation Headed for AFBF Meeting The Indiana Farm Bureau organization will also receive some well deserved recognition. According to Dietrick, IFB will receive recognition in 5 different areas: “leadership development, membership, communications and public relations, public policy and policy implementation.” Coverage of the AFBF convention begins this weekend on and the HAT app for Smartphones and tablets, and continues Monday on HAT radio stations across the state.

Journalist describes how he was arrested for photographing riot police

first_img April 23, 2018 Find out more News Maldivian president’s comms chief accused of sexually harassing journalist Help by sharing this information Organisation Reporters Without Borders, which condemns the many arbitrary arrests of journalists in recent months, got Minivan News website reporter Ahmed Naish to describe how police arrested him during a protest by the opposition Maldivian Democratic Party on 30 August and held him for 24 hours.The media freedom NGO reminds the authorities that arbitrary arrest violates article 46 of the Maldivian constitution, which says: “Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained, arrested or imprisoned except as provided by law by the People’s Majlis (parliament) in accordance with the article 16 of this constitution”.Reporters Without Borders deplores the repeated obstruction of media personnel in the course of their work and urges the government to put a stop to arrests designed to intimidate journalists and encourage self-censorship.The media and netizens played an important role during the Nasheed administration’s ouster in February, photographing and filming aspects of the accompanying crackdown that embarrassed authorities. Some journalists told Reporters Without Borders this was the reason for the current increase in arrests of professional and citizen journalists.Riot police known as Special Operations (SO) stopped Naish at 5:30 p.m. on 30 August in the Malé district of Sosun Magu as he was photographing them arresting a young demonstrator. They asked him for his press pass, which he did not have on him at the time, and, after refusing to accept his business card as identification, handcuffed him and led him away. “My hands were tied behind my back with a clip and the SO officer who did so kept tightening it,” Naish said in his account. “Another officer kept pinching my arms and hitting my ankles with his boot, telling me to walk faster.”More people were arrested, including two who had been taking photographs or videos of the police. They were bundled into a vehicle and taken to police headquarters and then transferred to a detention centre on Dhoonidhoo, an island just to the north of the capital.”They took my personal belongings (…) I was then photographed and taken before an investigating officer (IO) who informed me that I was arrested for obstructing police duty and causing public disorder. I refused to sign the arrest form because, in addition to stating a false reason for the arrest, the place of arrest noted in the form was incorrect.” After being placed in a large cell with other people arrested during the demonstration, Naish asked to see a doctor because his wrists were swollen. The doctor sprayed his wrists and gave him a painkiller. He was then allowed to speak to two lawyers and described to them the circumstances of his arrest.”I talked to seven people who were arrested similarly for taking photographs. However all were accused of obstructing police duty, disobeying orders and causing loss of public order.” At around 2 a.m., he was moved to a large cell where 25 other people were already being held. He was finally released without charge the next afternoon, after being held for about 24 hours.”I found out later than government-aligned private broadcaster Villa Television showed footage of my arrest, which would have confirmed that the police lied about the place of arrest. It would also show that I was not jeopardizing public order.” Naish added that a journalist with Mini Radio 97FM, Ali Nahyk, was arrested on 31 August for similar reasons.Maldives is ranked 73rd out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, which was compiled before February’s turmoil, when President Mohamed Nasheed was forced to resign and Vice-President Mohammed Waheed took over.

Another hearing is due to be held on 2 September.“The court order is invalid as it is only effective in Malaysia and Malaysia Today is hosted on a server in the United States,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This case should be taken up with a US court. We call for the withdrawal of the charges against Kamarudin.”Datuk Muhammad Shafee Abdullah, a well known lawyer, sued Kamarudin on 13 August over three articles claiming that he was responsible for trumped-up sodomy charges that were recently brought against opposition parliamentarian Anwar Ibrahim after Anwar claimed he had enough support to take power. The articles accuse the lawyer of getting Anwar’s aide to make false statements against his employer.Widely known as RPK, Kamarudin, 58, created the Malaysia Today website in 2004 after running the Free Anwar Campaign website (, which began campaigning for the parliamentarian’s release when he was given a nine-year prison sentence in 1998 on corruption and sodomy charges.

Protester who climbed Statue of Liberty charged in federal court

first_imgABC News(WASHINGTON) — The woman who scaled Lady Liberty on the Fourth of July was formally charged in federal court Thursday.Therese Okoumou, 44, of Staten Island, New York, was charged with trespassing, interference with agency functions and disorderly conduct, prosecutors said.Each charge carries a maximum penalty of six months in prison or a fine.“As alleged in the information, the defendant staged a dangerous stunt that alarmed the public and endangered her own life and the lives of the NYPD officers who responded to the scene. While we must and do respect the rights of the people to peaceable protest, that right does not extend to breaking the law in ways that put others at risk,” said U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman.Okoumou appeared in Manhattan federal court Thursday and pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.She was released on her own recognizance and posted bail. About 50 supporters packed the courtroom and cheered when court was adjourned.Okoumou, who emigrated from Congo in 1994, was protesting the Trump administration’s so-called zero tolerance policy and the separation of children at the U.S.-Mexico border.“Trump has ripped this country apart,” Okoumou said, referring to President Trump, at a press conference after the hearing. “It is depressing. It is outrageous.“In a democracy, we do not put children in cages,” she added. “Period.”Okoumou’s climb and subsequent arrest were preceded by the arrests of several protesters who hung a large banner that read “Abolish I.C.E.” on the monument, which is prohibited by the federal code of regulations.Okoumou was protesting with Rise and Resist, a group committed “to opposing, disrupting and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties,” according to the group’s website.She is scheduled to appear in court again Aug. 3.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
