Designed from the flat land and the blank paper, this house is inspired by the contemporaneous Brazilian architecture. Clean and high quality volumetries without losing the comfort and shelter. The entrance tunnel, which gives the name to the house, is the strong point of the pure form architecture that makes the connection between the inside and outside of the house. A brutalist element that frames and directs the look.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Fran ParenteThe clients are a couple with two young children and a large family with intense interaction. Their desire was to have a house without an established hierarchy, which could allow a dialog between the rooms. The house is prepared to receive people without losing the coziness that was very important to the residents. The living room, in this way, is the protagonist and the connecting element among the rooms. João Armentano was in charge of the interior design project and, with a lot of ability, harmonized architecture with the inside of the residence, providing comfort and coziness.Save this picture!© Fran ParenteThe main idea of the project was to have green everywhere. This brings the sense of “diving” in the landscape. From this concept, the idea of inner courtyard arose. Another desire from the residents was to be able to access the gardens with few steps and fluidity. In this way, we designed the garden and the house almost on the same level and without barriers. The spaces are almost continuous, which gives a higher sense of amplitude. Save this picture!© Fran ParenteSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Fran ParenteProject gallerySee allShow lessStamba Hotel / Adjara Arch GroupSelected ProjectsHouse H / Plasma studioSelected Projects Share Year:  “COPY” Photographs Tunnel House / Consuelo Jorge ArquitetosSave this projectSaveTunnel House / Consuelo Jorge Arquitetos Brazil Tunnel House / Consuelo Jorge Arquitetos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928490/tunnel-house-consuelo-jorge-arquitetos Clipboardlast_img read more

Government steps up online censorship, creates toll-free number for Internet users to call to report websites that criticise monarchy

first_img ThailandAsia – Pacific News Fah Diew Kan blocked News ThailandAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Thailand Thailand’s lèse majesté legislation is among the severest in the world. “Defamatory, insulting or intimidating” comments about the king and queen, their relatives or the regent are punishable by three to fifteen years in prison. Asked about bringing legal action against websites over content constituting lèse majesté, the minister replied: “Doing so will become a big scandal. We’d better suppress the news. Someone higher than me is of this opinion (…) I am not sure which proxy servers they are using, probably from India, or Malaysia. We have to keep tracking them down and blocking them.”The Computer Crime Act that took effect on 18 July 2007 authorises the police to seize the computer data of people suspected of disseminating insulting or pornographic content online. The individual records of Internet users must be kept by ISPs for 90 days and can be examined by the authorities without referring to a judge. The police can also confiscate any computer if they suspect it has been used for illegal purposes.More informationMan Pattanotai’s interviewRead the Computer Crime Act August 21, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts News News RSF_en Organisation Reporters Without Borders is alarmed about the comments made by Man Pattanotai, the Thai minister of information and communication technology (ICT), in a radio interview on 14 May.

He said prosecuting websites because of their content would cause a “big scandal” and that it was better to just “suppress the news” by closing them down or blocking access.“By voicing a preference for radical censorship measures, the minister is in complete contradiction with the Computer Crime Act, which has been in force since the summer of 2007 and which requires the authorities to bring a complaint against a website before requesting its closure,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We condemn the reinforcement of online controls, which includes the creation of a toll-free number for people to call to denounce any website criticising the monarchy.”Man Pattanotai was interviewed by the “Khao Den Praden Ron” news programme on radio 96.5 MHz, which on 14 May was about the unexplained blockage of three websites – the news sites Fah Diew Kan (http://www.sameskybooks.org) and Prachatai (http://www.prachatai.com) and the video-sharing site YouTube (http://www.youtube). Prachatai was inaccessible for nearly 24 hours on 14 and 15 May. Access to YouTube is often blocked while videos referring to King Bhumibol Adulyadej are removed. Access to Fah Diew Kan is still blocked. Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years Asked why the sites were blocked, the minister replied: “They have content about the monarchy. Thai people cannot bear this, and no one can. Not just me or my officers. Even the former ICT minister, Sitthichai Pokaiyaudom, once he was informed about this, he asked me to ban them. And he would encourage folk who have the knowledge to hack the websites. Everyone is helping us. Even operators of Internet services who have the knowledge in hacking also help us.”The minister confirmed that a toll-free number, 1111, has been created so that Internet users can call in and report website content which they regard as lèse majesté.Thailand has more than 100 ISPs and not all of them follow the same rules as regard access blocking. As a result, some Internet users will find that certain sites are blocked and others will not. The minister said some foreign companies that hosted websites were cooperating with his government by agreeing to block content.“In most cases, it is difficult since the webhosting service providers are located outside the country,” the minister said. “They are in California, Texas, New Jersey, we know where they are all located. We have received cooperation from Google California and YouTube.” June 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Journalist Micah Garen’s fiancée makes an appeal to his kidnappers

Micah Garen went missing on 13 August 2004, but for Ms. Marie-Hélène Carleton, kidnapping is the most likely explanation.Reporters Without Borders is very concerned as to the fate of the 36-year-old American reporter who disappeared, along with his Iraqi translator-Amir Doshe-in Nassiriyah (in southern Iraq).”We are urging the Iraqi police, as well as any Italian military authorities present in the area, to do everything possible to locate the two men, but avoid doing anything that may put their lives in danger,” the organization declared.Micah Garen is one of the directors of Four Corners Media, a media production company based in New York, which specializes in producing video, photographic and written reports for major media clients. The journalist’s family has had no news of him since August 13th.Members of Amir Doshe’s family have also protested against their family member’s kidnapping. According to several press agencies, the two men may have been kidnapped while visiting a shop in Nassiriyah’s market.So far, no one has come forward to claim credit for the kidnapping. There is no indication as to whether Micah Garen was abducted by an Iraqi faction in order to exert pressure on the opposing faction, as was the case with the British journalist, James Brandon, who was abducted in Basra, on August 12th. Other possibilities are that this may have been a kidnapping for ransom, or that looters of archeological relics may have been disturbed by the journalist’s work.

Foreclosures Hit 10-Year Low, Despite April Uptick

first_img Foreclosures Hit 10-Year Low, Despite April Uptick Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Black Knight Financial Services, a provider of integrated technology, data, and analytics solutions, released its First Look at April’s mortgage performance Wednesday. The total national loan delinquency rate (loans 30 or more days past due, but not in foreclosure), spiked 13 percent from March putting a little over 2 million properties past due, however Black Knight said there is no need for alarm. The rise is primarily due to the calendar.Due to the month ending on a Sunday, servicers were unable to process payments the last two days of the month. Typically, for this reason, all months ending on a Sunday cause a spike in delinquencies. Additionally, March is known to be the calendar year low for mortgage delinquencies, triggering a rise coming into April.Past due mortgage accounts went up by roughly 241,000 from March, however, 227,000 of those were early stage delinquencies meaning they were 30 days past due. Based on previous months that follow a Sunday ending, May should be a near, but likely not complete, reversal in April’s delinquencies.Active foreclosures are continuing to fall, hitting a 10-year low of 433,000. Similarly, at 52,800, monthly foreclosure stops were the fewest since January 2005. Prepay speeds, typically a good indicator of refinance activity, fell by 11 percent from March.Properties 90 days or more past due, but not in foreclosure were down 8,000 at 581,000, properties in foreclosure pre-sale inventory were down 15,000 to 433,000, and properties 30 days past due or in foreclosure were up 227,000 at 2.5 million.Similar to the March report, by state, Mississippi continues to hold the highest number of delinquent loans at 3.16 percent being over 90 days. Mississippi is followed by Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee.A more detailed review of this data will be available June 5, 2017 in Black Knight’s Mortgage Monitor Report. This report will include an analysis of data supplemented by detailed charts and graphs that reflect trends and point-in-time observations.The report will be available here.

Hertford bid bye-bye to bar

first_imgHertford College is to hold a ball at the end of Michaelmas to commemorate their formerly student-run bar. Profits from the award-winning drinkery will be used to celebrate its passing.Former Bar Manager Oliver Stephenson proposed a motion for a “Winter Ball to celebrate and honour the life and memory of the student-run Hertford Bar” at the College EGM on Sunday of 0th week.The ball is to be entitled ‘The Last Pango’, in reference to the infamous Hertford ‘Pango’ cocktail, which has been described as “so strong it’s illegal”.The motion informed the College that the JCR bar bank account had £10,940.36, and suggested that this should be put towards the ball. It added, “The JCR should also contribute to the most fantastic sending-off possible, in line with our affection.”However Christina Head, a third year History student, opposed the expenditure of the full amount and £4,999.99 was instead contributed from the appropriate JCR funds. This means that the amount spent on each guest at the ball will be around £90: almost double the per capita expenditure of Hertford’s last summer ball. In Trinity term of last year a professional was brought in to manage the JCR bar by Hertford College’s authorities. 96% of the JCR voted to oppose the abolition of student management, but the changes still went forward.Anaar Patel, Hertford JCR’s Vice-President, said, “Everybody I’ve spoken to has expressed their regret and sadness that the bar has been privatised. The atmosphere down there is clinical and empty and the drinks are expensive.”However second year Law student Jonny Ward was less downbeat. He said, “The bar went out with a bang last term, but now we want to add a bit of glam to its passing. Bring on the Pangos!”last_img read more
