Located among a tranquil landscape of Roi-Et, a province in the South-Eastern region of Thailand, the context already offers a sense of retreat that becomes the purpose of this residence. Conceived as a group of interrelated dwelling spaces, the owners intend for the place to be many things. Not only a house for two, a doctor and his mother, it also includes spaces that anticipate future extended family. Thus the house need to answer to diverse requirements of the Thanapase family that foresees three generations living in it. Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Spaceshift StudioAs the South-Eastern region is known for its extreme dry weather and heat, the house need to first and foremost address these climatic condition. The first question the architect needed to answer was how to accommodate these requirements while retain the sense of privacy and tranquility that the context offer.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe decision was simple. To sustain both individual and familial needs, as well as embrace the tropical climate, the house is organized as four living quarters joined together by open veranda and layers of protective enclosures. These living quarters though joined by their linear organization, are also separated to let light and air in. Enveloped by “breathable” brick wall at the front and see-through steel mesh façade at the back, the views from within are always framed to give the inhabitants different sets of relationship with the landscape.Save this picture!© Spaceshift Studio Layers of façade act as protective walls make the house at once enclosed and free.  With these breathable envelopes, domestic activities are always framed by the presence of the surrounding landscape, which becomes a background for lives within the house.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe house is organized into four interconnected living quarters. All private spaces are joined by familial and communal areas. Yet some of the rooms are not defined by walls, but instead the perimeter of those rooms are left blur, allowing usages to emerge. This also occurs between the interior and exterior spaces of the house. Apertures are stratified in such a way that the owners’ relationship to the surrounding landscape can be adjusted or chosen, which creates a free play of light and darkness, the fresh air, the breeze as well as the views. Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioThe house is designed with a unique sense of lightness, along with the sensitive stratifications of its enveloping enclosures that made the house welcoming while remain a private sanctuary. This is achieved by employing steel supporting structures that work together with both contrasting material such as brick blocks and harmonious elements such as steel mesh doors and windows. Brick blocks and their steel structure at the front lend the house its sharp simplicity that resonates with steel mesh enclosure at the back, thus turning the otherwise weighty materials into something light and airy.Save this picture!North & South ElevationsAnticipating changes, the house has to be flexible enough to provide a framework for future transformation. Such simple balance is not easy to achieve. Had the design been so particular, the house will remain firmly fixed refusing any functional adjustments. Had the design been loose, each space may become unidentified lacking particularity that lends the sense of the place to it. Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioIt is only through careful anticipation that the design achieves the balance of being both framed and free. Materials and elements are configured and assembled with the language pertinent to current usages, giving an ambient of something contemporary. It is a house conceived from a close connection between inner demands and outer context, creating a unified whole that belongs to both the owner and the place it is situated.Save this picture!© Spaceshift StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessOpen Platform and JAJA Architects Win Competition to Design Denmark’s First Wooden P…Architecture NewsArchitectural Works that Were Declared World Heritage Sites in the Last DecadeArticlesProject locationAddress:Roi Et, ThailandLocation to be used only as a reference.

The TV news agency, which has already had much of its equipment seized, was fined 150,000 Egyptian pounds (21,000 euros). Gohar said he would appeal.“The court’s decision is a death warrant for CNC, an agency that works with foreign news media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Egyptian authorities are not even trying to hide their desire to censor independent media and control the news. The footage of the Mahalla protests that went round the world was evidence of social unrest. Gohar and his agency are paying the price for this bad publicity although none of his crews filmed the controversial reports.”Yesterday’s ruling was the resulted of a complaint brought against Gohar by the governmental broadcasting authority after several international TV stations broadcast footage of demonstrations against price hikes in the Nile Delta on 6 April in which protesters were seen venting their anger on a photo of President Hosni Mubarak.The CNC, which works closely with foreign TV broadcasters such as France 2, Al-Jazeera and Al-Arabiya, was accused of providing them with the offending film, and police raided its offices, seizing broadcast equipment.Gohar told Reporters Without Borders he requested the renewal of his broadcast licence last year, but the authorities suspended the issue of licences pending adoption of a new broadcasting law. Deprived of much of its equipment and hit by an unfair prosecution, the CNC has already cut its activities by around 70 per cent and has been forced to lay off half of its staff.Egypt was ranked 146th out of 173 countries in the 2008 press freedom index with Reporters Without Borders issued last week.

Regime steps up censorship and online disruption to block protests

first_img IranMiddle East – North Africa Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists IranMiddle East – North Africa The authorities have increased censorship in a bid to prevent yesterday’s anti-government protests, blocking independent or pro-opposition websites and other electronic media. Broadband speed has greatly slowed in major cities as in the run-up to previous anti-regime demonstrations or opposition events. Mobile phone and text-message traffic has been badly disrupted and the Persian calendar month “bahman” has been added to blocked keywords in an effort to reduce calls for today’s protests (14 February is 25 Bahman).The stepped-up censorship and cyber-attacks began on 10 February in an effort to prevent organisation and reporting of the demonstrations. Two news sites, and (the latter close to opposition leader Mehdi Karoubi), were blocked.Satellite TV broadcasts to Iran have been jammed and the BBC officially protested on 10 February. The jamming first targeted news about the revolution in Egypt and then was extended on 12 February to all BBC and Voice of America broadcasts, which were either cut off or became hard to pick up.

RSF concerned by proposed reforms to Canada’s National Security legislation

first_img News February 22, 2018 RSF concerned by proposed reforms to Canada’s National Security legislation News Organisation On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and local partner Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE) have today sent the following letter to Canada’s Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Ralph Goodale, detailing both organizations’ numerous concerns with Bill C-59, the proposed overhaul of Canada’s National Security framework. CJFE and RSF filed a joint submission to the Standing Committee reviewing the draft legislation earlier this month, highlighting how the legislation could seriously impact press freedom and the free flow of information. Follow the news on Canada CanadaAmericas Online freedomsProtecting sources WhistleblowersFreedom of expressionInternet to go further News CanadaAmericas Online freedomsProtecting sources WhistleblowersFreedom of expressionInternet Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Help by sharing this information January 15, 2021 Find out more “We must impose democratic obligations on the leading digital players” Receive email alerts November 19, 2020 Find out more Minister for Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph GoodaleFebruary 20, 2018We are writing on behalf of Canadian Journalists for Free Expression (CJFE), a non-profit, non-governmental organization that works to promote and protect press freedom and freedom of expression around the world, and Reporters Without Borders/Reporters sans frontières (RSF) an international non-profit organization that defends freedom of information in all five continents.We are deeply concerned by measures in Bill C-59, the federal government’s overhaul of Canada’s National Security framework, that threaten the integrity of journalism and the free expression rights of Canadians. CJFE filed a joint submission with Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Part 3 of Bill C-59, entitled the “Communication Security Establishment Act,” to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security, detailing our specific legal concerns with the legislation.Chief among these concerns is the establishment of an offensive cyberwarfare mandate for the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), which would allow the CSE to “degrade, disrupt, influence, respond to or interfere with the capabilities” of non-Canadian entities. An aggressive reading of this statute could permit the CSE to, for example, “disrupt” access to the website of a foreign news organization, “influence” a foreign news organization by forging or altering documents relied upon by its journalists, or “interfere with” key technologies such as encryption tools and anonymity software that journalists and others routinely use in their work. All of these scenarios pose unacceptable risks to journalists and the free press.We are also concerned that foreign communications monitoring activities of the CSE could incidentally or intentionally result in the collection, use, and analysis of the communications of Canadian journalists with overseas sources. Permitting a surveillance program which allows for the interception of communications between journalists and their sources could deter whistleblowers and people in sensitive sectors, repressive regimes or warzones from communicating with Canadian journalists, interfering with their work and impoverishing the news on which Canadians rely.The CSE Act also allows the organization to collect “publicly available information” on Canadians. This includes anything anyone posts on the open web or on social media. It may even include data collected by third-party data aggregators, such as Equifax Canada, or even information that has been hacked and made available for sale on the ‘dark web.’ Considering the breadth of information available online, in combination with the CSE’s powers to collect information from foreign allies by entering into Arrangements, and from other branches of government, the CSE could potentially build comprehensive digital dossiers on Canadians without ever running afoul of Bill C-59’s prohibition on directly targeting Canadians. This form of mass surveillance has a demonstrable chilling effect on the free expression rights of Canadians.Bill C-59 outlines an approval process for the use of these powers that vests too much authority in the hands of a few decision-makers without providing concrete substantive standards to guide them. This structure merely serves to reinforce the CSE’s power to collect vast amounts of information in secret. This level of oversight is not sufficiently meaningful or independent given the extent and scope of the proposed powers for CSE. We join our friends in civil society in calling for substantially strengthened oversight and review mechanisms. We are also concerned that Part 4 of Bill C-59 authorizes Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) to engage in ‘threat disruption activities’. These activities include the ability to create and disseminate false documents, as well as the ability to falsify identities for investigative purposes. This raises the spectre of government-backed disruption activities such as CSIS employees posing as members of the press or disseminating ‘fake news’ in Canada or abroad. Permitting such activities could substantially undermine public trust in reporting and the professional relationship reporters have with their subjects.The government of Canada must create a National Security framework free from the potential for abuse, and consistent with the International Principles on the Application of Human Rights to Communications Surveillance (also called the “Necessary and Proportionate Principles”). This can be facilitated by separating the CSE Act from Bill C-59 and reintroducing it as new legislation to be debated and challenged on its own merits. It is important to note that the 2016 public consultation on Bill C-51 and national security reform did not include the CSE Act. We believe that if the proposal to expand the powers of the CSE is truly in the best interests of Canadians it ought first to be subject to the fullest extent of democratic scrutiny available.We thank you for your attention and look forward to your reply.Yours sincerely,Alice Klein, CJFE PresidentMargaux Ewen, RSF North America DirectorCanada ranks 22nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, after falling 14 places in the past two years.

The cease and desist orders were made after several years of examinations and monitoring.Prior to September 28, the September Ocwen release stated that state regulatory agencies in Indiana and Nevada either withdrew or allowed their respective cease and desist orders to expire.Under the agreements, terms include details such as Ocwen not acquiring any new residential mortgage servicing rights until April 30, 2018, developing plans to transition to a new servicing system, and not engaging an auditor to perform an escrow review of between 8,000 and 10,000 loans. However, the release also notes that Ocwen did not admit or deny liability in these settlements and none of the agreements contain any monetary fines or penalties.“Ocwen is pleased to have reached mutually-agreeable resolutions with 12 states to resolve regulatory actions brought against the Company in April 2017,” John Lovallo, Spokesperson for Ocwen, said. “We continue to work cooperatively with the remaining 19 state regulatory agencies and two state attorneys general, and are committed to seeking timely and acceptable resolutions with these states.”Montana Department of Administration, Division of Banking and Financial Institutions Commissioner Melanie Hall also voiced that she was pleased to reach an agreement with Ocwen. It now allows both the Division and the company to move forward with a focus on what concrete steps need to be taken to provide for customers accurately and with improved service.“We look forward to productive relationships with all regulatory bodies, and to continue our mission of helping homeowners, especially those struggling to remain in their homes,” Lovallo said.To see the full SEC 8K filing, click here.

NHS gears up for central HR and payroll IT system

first_img Previous Article Next Article Work is set to start this summer to replace the 70 payroll and HR computer packages used by the NHS with one integrated system.Personnel Today has learned that the new NHS system will mean personnel managers will have a central record of staff skills and training for the first time. Six suppliers have submitted tenders to provide the system being developed by the Department of Health. It will replace more than 30 different payroll packages and 40 HR packages currently used in the NHS. A decision on preferred suppliers is expected by the end of July.Wayne Lloyd, director of personnel at Glenfield Hospital NHS Trust in Leicestershire, who has been seconded to the project, described the benefits as “potentially enormous”.He said, “The integrated nature of the system proposed means that much duplication of record-keeping can be avoided.”The introduction of central training records is expected to vastly reduce administrative work. They will also be web-enabled, allowing staff to view and update their own records, subject to confidentiality.Lloyd said, “The records will move automatically with staff rather than be lost or transferred.“Given that there are more than 200,000 such transfers a year, there will be significant implications for productivity.”Insiders said earlier this year that the DoH had put the cost at about £70m but that they feared the true cost could be as much as £200m. (Personnel Today, 4 April)Lloyd added that a budget for the project is currently being negotiated with the Treasury. Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed.
