MD Apartment, located centrally in Ahmedabad, is the house of a designer, designed to meet his specific requirements. Originally a two bedroom apartment, it has been converted into a Studio.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectStripping the space bare was the first stage of design. This meant removing all the partition walls, existing toilets, the kitchen and even the existing flooring. There was a conscious decision of making a space that was minimal and at the same time, tactile. So a majority of the materials chosen were done so based on how well they age.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectOn entering the apartment, the entire house is visible – the only door in the house is to the toilet. This ensures ample daylight in the north facing apartment. The living space flows into the dining area, with a floor seating dining table and an open kitchen making the house appear larger which further connects to a reading and entertainment den.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectThe interior takes white and grey undertones, both of which create an overarching harmony, which is then accented with highlights of wood and brass. On entering the house one experiences four different spaces demarcated by changes in material. The kitchen and the toilet undertake only grey tones, hence creating ‘niche like’ spaces inside the lighter white and grey general areas. The den is made of wood to give a cozy vibe, and the volume of this space is reduced drastically to give a sense of entering a different realm, which is further exaggerated by the need to climb a couple of steps to enter it. Finally the last space that is the sleeping area, is made much warmer with beige walls and a more playful floor in tones of blue. This gives it a very different aesthetic inside the house, giving it a personal touch.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionThe project is an exploration of materiality and juxtaposition of textures. The entire flooring is polished concrete with different inlays, like wood, stone, cement tiles and brass. The polished concrete is filleted onto the wall up to the sill level, to give a sense of being inside concrete rather than being on it. Different greys explored to go along with the concrete include a grey polished marble and three types of grey fabrics used in the soft furnishings. The only coloured accents used in the project in shades of indigo and turquoise, is in the ceramics, cushions or shear curtains. All the walls have a pigmented lime plaster finish which not only keeps the house cool in the hot weather of Ahmedabad, but also gives a timelessness to the space. The wood used, is reclaimed 60-80 year old Valsad Teak from the ‘Pols’ of Ahmedabad. Not only is it more sustainable, the aged wood has an inherent rich texture.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectLeading away from the generic chic finished urban homes, a conscious choice was made to  keep the ‘end product’ unfinished; to make the house an oasis in the middle of the city, similar to the natural ever-changing sense of space of a vernacular cottage.Save this picture!© Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy ProjectProject gallerySee allShow lessChengdu University Library / China Southwest Architectural Design and Research Insti…Selected ProjectsWatch • Tree&stone / The Design Institute of Landscape and Architecture China Academ…Selected Projects Share ArchDailycenter_img Area:  67 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 Photographs:  Ishita Sitwala | The Fishy Project Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeSaranshOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAhmedabadapartmentConcreteIndiaPublished on June 19, 2019Cite: “MD Apartment / Saransh” 18 Jun 2019.

After journalists, Egypt arrests bloggers

Egyptian law penalizes insulting or disrespecting any of the three monotheistic religions.Mohamed Radwan Mohamed, a blogger better known as “Mohamed Oxygen,” has meanwhile been held ever since his arrest a month ago, on 6 April. His sidewalk interviews with members of the public and his interviews with well-known figures, addressing political and social issues in a relaxed style, have won him hundreds of thousands of followers on Facebook and YouTube. Paying tribute to him on the Deutsche Welle website, the Egyptian novelist Alaa al Aswany wrote: “He knew he could never get a satisfying job in the traditional newspapers or TV channels but, instead of despairing, he decided to become an independent journalist and blogger.”“Blogs, interviews with people in the street, humour and irreverence are not terrorist acts, so how can the Egyptian authorities explain the arrests of these bloggers unless they were driven by a desire to control not only news and information but also opinions?” RSF said.All-out crackdownBy reining in the traditional media and blocking access to independent online media, the Egyptian authorities have reduced the country to almost complete silence. Social networks have not as yet been blocked but the authorities are currently using other means in an attempt to control social network content.If they are not arrested ­– like Alaa Abdel Fattah, a blogger who has been serving a five-year jail term since 2015 – journalists and social network users are subjected to harassment and intimidation. Some are defamed, which makes them fear arrest. Others, such as Wael Abbas, are the targets of online attacks by troll armies, who managed to get his account suspended.At least 35 journalists, citizen-journalists and bloggers are currently detained in Egypt, which is ranked 161st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Most of the detainees are being held pending trial. May 9, 2018 After journalists, Egypt arrests bloggers January 22, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Detained journalists and bloggers appear in court

first_img Follow the news on Bahrain News March 17, 2021 Find out more October 14, 2020 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders reiterates its condemnation of the arbitrary behaviour of the Bahraini judicial system, which has postponed the trials of several detained news and information providers in the past two weeks.The judicial authorities must abandon all the trumped-up charges they have brought against journalists just because they covered anti-government street protests, the media freedom organization said.Reporters Without Borders also calls on the authorities to systematically order independent investigations whenever torture and mistreatment in detention is alleged. Failure to investigate violates article 12 of the UN Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.RWB and nine other human rights groups wrote to Frank La Rue, the UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression, and Juan Méndez, the UN special rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, on 15 December asking them to investigate the arrests, detention and torture of three Bahraini journalists.Arrested for covering recent protests, the three journalists – reporter Mohamed Hassan, freelance photographer Hussain Hubail and freelance cameraman Qassim Zain AlDeen – all say they were tortured. Hassan has been released but Hubail and Deen are still held.In the latest act of judicial foot-dragging, a judge yesterday postponed the well-known photographer Ahmed Humeidan’s trial until 26 March, when a verdict is supposed to be issued. He has been held since December 2012 on a charge of attacking a police station in Sitra in April 2012, although he was not even there at the time.His trial began last February but the prosecution kept on postponing hearings because it had difficulty producing witnesses. His lawyer has repeatedly but unsuccessfully requested an independent investigation into his client’s allegations of torture. His requests to the prison authorities to let his client be examined by a doctor have also been unsuccessful.On 27 January, the trial of the freelance photographer Hussain Hubail and the blogger Jassim Al-Nuaimi were postponed until 16 February for the final defence statements.Winner of the independent newspaper Al-Wasat’s prize in May 2013 for a photo of protesters in a cloud of teargas, Hubail was arrested on 31 July and was charged on 21 August with “managing (electronic) accounts calling for the government’s overthrow,” “promoting and inciting hatred against the government,” “inciting others to disobey the law,” and calling for illegal demonstrations. He was also charged with “contributing to the Twitter account of the 14 February media network.” During the 27 January hearing, he accused a certain Lt. Fawaz Al-Sameem of torturing him and threatening him and the women in his family with rape.Nuaimi, who was a very active blogger during the uprising, was arrested at his home by masked plainclothesmen on 31 July 2013 on charges of using social media to incite anti-government hatred and call for illegal demonstrations.After being held for several days at the General Directorate of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), he was transferred to Dry Dock prison on 3 August, only to be transferred back to the CID and then taken before a prosecutor. He says he was tortured and forced to sign a confession.During the 27 January hearing, Nuaimi testified that he was not in Bahrain when the offending messages were posted and that he had sold his computer before they were posted, so he could not have been responsible. According to information received by Reporters Without Borders, Hubail and Nuaimi reported that Red Cross representatives examined them earlier this month in connection with their claims of mistreatment.Abdullah Salman Al-Jerdabi, a photographer who was arrested on 13 September 2013, was sentenced on 22 January to six months in prison on charges of participating in an illegal demonstration and misuse of social networks.The freelance cameraman Qassim Zain AlDeen, who was arrested at his home on 2 August 2013 in the run-up to the “Tamarod” demonstrations in mid-August, was sentenced in December to three months in prison on a charge of participating in an illegal demonstration. He was sentenced to an additional six months in prison on 15 January on another charge of participating in an illegal demonstration and a charge of “vandalism.” He is due to be tried on 16 February on a charge of “vandalism” inside the prison where he is being held.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Operation Planned for August 7

first_img 15 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Community News The Pasadena Police Department will conduct a bicycle and pedestrian safety enforcement operation Friday, August 7, 2020 aimed at keeping people who need to go out to exercise or run essential errands safe.While the COVID-19 pandemic is requiring residents to stay home as much as possible, the Pasadena Police Department recognizes the need to protect the public by looking for violations made by bicyclists, drivers and pedestrians that make roads unsafe.“I receive many complaints about individuals driving unsafe all around our city.” Lieutenant Max Dahlstein said. “Our focus for this Safety Operation is to keep people safe. Everybody benefits when people follow traffic laws and drive responsibly.”The safety of bicyclists and pedestrians remains a top priority for the Pasadena Police Department. So far this year, the Pasadena Police Department has investigated 44 injury collisions involving bicyclists and pedestrians.These violations include drivers speeding, making illegal turns, failing to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, failing to stop for signs and signals or any other traffic violations. Officers will also look for pedestrians who cross the street illegally or fail to yield to drivers who have the right of way. Bike riders will be stopped when riding on the wrong side of the road, not complying with stop signs and signals, or other violation of the same traffic laws that apply to them as drivers.To keep you and your family safe, the Pasadena Police Department offers the following tips when out biking, driving or walking:• Only cross at marked crosswalks or intersections with a stop sign or signal.• Look for cars backing up. Avoid going between parked cars.• Make eye contact with drivers. Don’t assume they see you.• Wear bright clothing during the day and use a flashlight when walking at night.• Wait for pedestrians to cross the street. Be courteous and patient.• Stay off the phone.• Follow the speed limit.• Look for pedestrians when backing up or turning. BICYCLISTS• Always wear a helmet. Helmets are required by law for anyone under 18.• Bicyclists must travel in the same direction of traffic and have the same requirements as any slow moving vehicle.Everyone who is out is reminded to practice physical distancing measures, when feasible, staying at least six feet away from others.Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

ELAM: Enjoy the mania while it lasts

first_imgIn the PipelineDennis Elam Dennis Elam is an associate professor at Texas A&M San Antonio and a 1966 graduate of Andrews High School and blogs at https://professorelam.typepad.com/markets/ Dogecoin is up 400% this past week. The IPO of Coinbase renders its CEO an instant $17 billion, now that’s some coin! Robinhood brokerage is unable to process all the client crypto trades. Goldman and Morgan handily beat earnings estimates. Crude oil nears $64 on expectations of greater demand as more venture out from the Covid Lockdown. The high-flying NASD 100 doubles in one year. The pullback the last two months resets the index for more gains.The ‘hemline indicator’ posits that fashions are more revealing during stock market manias. Indeed, even mainstream Yahoo.com has featured Elizabeth Hurley and Salma Hayek in their skimpiest bikinis. And positive sentiment, hello Buzz Lightyear, extends to infinity and beyond. Richard Branson is planning consumer space travel. SpaceX boss Elon Musk has said the next major flight test of the Mars bound Starship craft will take place next week. The Pentagon confirms photos of ‘unidentified aerial phenomena’ captured in 2019. This is an echo of American landing on the moon subsequent to the DJIA reaching 1,000 for the first time in 1966. The movie 2001 A Space Odyssey suggested lunar travel, much as is being discussed today.Mathematically speaking, a rally might be arithmetic with a slope of 1.5x. A mania exhibits a geometric scope, the slope is raised to a power, not just a multiplier. Such events are rare. The first in modern times was Tulipmania in Holland in 1636. The South Sea Bubble occurred in England in 1720. The United States has endured numerous ups and downs such as the Panic of 1907 and the Roaring 20s followed by the Crash of 1929.Ralph Elliott postulated that markets move in a three step one-way, two step the other fashion. Both the NASD and the NDX appear to be in their fifth wave up. That suggests a top in the next few months. Parabolic increases usually collapse in a near vertical move down, a mirror of the move up. Last week I suggested several potential worries but all that is over looked as the markets celebrate Coming out of Covid.Add to the list Russia incursion on the Ukraine and China’s continued expansion into the South China Sea. A retired admiral just published a book titled 2034 predicting a war between China and the US.As commodity prices boom, bond prices advanced yesterday the opposite of what one might think. Expect a bond rally for some weeks retracing the first quarter rise in interest rates.Or as Hal Holbrook remarked to Charlie Sheen in Wall Street, enjoy it while it lasts, cause it never does.
