Lateral House is located in a Bangalore and has been built for a young family, which looked to me for something pure. The brief however had a strict adherence to keep costs low and to abide by numerous Vaastu principles.Save this picture!© Tina NandiThe attempt was to create a sculptural space which along with being bright and airy, segregated public and private spaces, played dramatically with scale and proportion and lastly and very importantly allow for a self sufficient unit which absorbs Bangalore’s beautiful climate even if the sites next door were to be built a foot away from it. (A growing trend in Bangalore)Save this picture!© Tina NandiThe parking lot is hidden away below a mezzanine level as a ramp leads to the center of the house where the main door is located. The public spaces of the living, dining and guest bedroom are located at the lower level. As you climb up to the upper levels, the sanctity of privacy and the scale of the house increases.Save this picture!© Tina NandiThe mezzanine becomes the mid level combining with the lower and upper level (more private) superfluously, yet maintaining the strict visual connects of entitled privacy of each, i.e. light and sky for the living and light and view for the upper level. The mid level opens into the north facing courtyard (above the car park), the heart of the house.Save this picture!© Tina NandiThe house gets its light, ventilation from this garden/ courtyard as the bedrooms wrap around it. It is here where every day and night seeps into the house in their difference over the changing seasons. Height has been used as a privacy element and the staircase as an element of dramatic transformation. The brick facades on the elevations and courtyard express the house’s subtle relationship with the outside, as the projecting bricks cast varying shadows each day peculiar to that moment.

  • Updates on media freedom violations during protests in Belarus

    first_img Receive email alerts RSF_en (Photo: RFE/RL) May 28, 2021 Find out more July 21, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Updates on media freedom violations during protests in Belarus BelarusEurope – Central Asia Organisation News News Because of the ongoing crisis in Belarus, Reporters Without Borders has decided to provide regular updates on media freedom violations linked to coverage of the peaceful protests that are taking place.21.07.2011 – Repression continues, but more targetedA number of journalists were again briefly detained during the “silent protests” that were held in several Belarusian cities for the ninth consecutive Wednesday yesterday.But the complaints by journalists about police abuses seem to have had some effect. After receiving complaints last week from 30 members of the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), attorney-general Ryhor Vasilevich warned the security forces that they could be punished for violating media rights. As a result, the police were less aggressive, in Minsk at least, and let some journalists do their work, albeit advising them to not to get too close to the demonstrators.Reporters Without Borders takes note of the relative restraint now being shown by the police, which contrasts with their indiscriminate violence during previous demonstrations. But the repression is continuing, although it is now concentrated on journalists who lack official accreditation (above all the correspondents of exile media and news websites).Two journalists were formally arrested while covering the latest protests. One was Alyaksandra Klimovich of Belsat TV, an independent station. She was sentenced today in Minsk to 11 days in prison. A colleague, Mikhas Yanchuk, told Reporters Without Borders that all the Belsat employees covering the protests were briefly detained and some were beaten or their equipment was broken.The other arrested journalist was Alyaksandr Zyankou, a photojournalist working for the Ex-press.by news website, who was arrested in the Minsk-region town of Barysau. He was sentenced today to 5 days in prison.The following were also briefly detained:-Alisa Pol, Radio Racyja’s correspondent in Brest-Alena Autushka, an Ex-press.by reporter in Barysau-Andrey Lyubenchuk, a Brest-based freelancer, who was detained after interviewing one of the coordinators of the “Revolution through social networks” campaign. The video tape was seized.———15.07.2011 – Arrests and Internet blockingJournalists were again targeted by the security forces during the “silent protests” that took place in several Belarusian cities on 13 July. Access to the online social network Vkontakte was also blocked.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders and the Belarusian Association of Journalists (BAJ), the following 11 media personnel were briefly arrested:-Marya Myalyokhina, Yezhednevnik-Aleh Hruzdzilovich, RFE/RL-Zakhar Shcherbakou, BelaPAN-Pavel Padabed, BelaPAN-Pavel Mitskevich, Komsomolskaya Pravda v Belorussii-Larissa Chirakova, a freelancer-Tatsyana Huseva, Info-Kuryer-Alyaksandr Muzhdabalyau, Ximix.info-Alyaksey Trubkin, Radio Raciya. He was fined 700,000 roubles (100 euros) by a court in the northern city of Navapolatsk yesterday after being held overnight.-Ales Sushcheuski, Babruiski Rehiyanalny Partal-Zmitser Lupach, Prefekt InfoGrazhyna Shalkevich of Radio Raciya has meanwhile been fined 1,050,000 roubles (150 euros) for her coverage of the 6 July demonstration in the western city of Hrodna.The Russian online social network Vkontakte, on which groups such as “Revolution via social networks” have been established, was rendered inaccessible for several hours on 13 July by some Belarusian Internet service providers such as ByFly.Attorney general Ryhor Vasilevich wrote to interior minister Anatol Kulyashou today asking him to prevent the police from interfering in the work of journalists. The letters was the result of a petition that a group of journalists sent to Vasilevich at the beginning of the week.————11.07.2011 – Another journalist convictedRFE/RL Belarusian service reporter Mikhal Karnevich, who was arrested while covering a demonstration in Hrodna on 3 July, was fined 1,050,000 roubles (150 euros) today for “participating in an illegal demonstration.” As in other trials in recent days, two policemen testified that they had arrested him although Karnevich denied that they were the arresting officers.“One of the officers said I was marching with the demonstrators and clapping my hands, while the other said he did not remember if he had arrested me but my face seemed familiar to him,” Karnevich told Reporters Without Borders. “He was unable to say what I was wearing, where exactly I was or how he came to write the arrest report.”Karnevich is afraid that the foreign ministry will now withdraw his accreditation and that it will be hard for him to cover future opposition protests for fear of being arrested.——————–08.07.2011 – Nine journalists sentencedNine journalists were convicted yesterday following their arrests during the “silent protests” held on 3 and 6 July.“We condemn these latest arbitrary convictions and the botched trials that are often based on false testimony by the police,” Reporters Without Borders said.- Yauhen Shapchyts, Belsat (sentenced to 12 days in prison)- Ales Asiptsou, BelaPAN (10 days in prison)- Syarhey Kavalyou, freelance cameraman (10 days in prison)- Vital Zablotski, Talaka photographer (1,050,000 roubles – 145 euros)- Volha Rudnitskaya, Belsat (350,000 roubles – 50 euros)- Viktar Maslovich, Bobruisky Kuryer, Viktar Kashan, Bobruisky Kuryer, Syarhey Latsinski, Babruiski Rehiyanalny Portal and Alyaksandr Sushcheuski, Babruiski Rehiyanalny Portal (175,000 roubles – 25 euros)Mikhal Karnevich’s trial has been postponed again, this time until 11 July.———————–07.07.2011 – Desperate government resorts to unbridled repressionReporters Without Borders roundly condemns the arrest of at least 25 journalists during the “silent protests” that were held yesterday in Minsk and several other Belarusian cities.“The almost daily mass arrests of journalists must stop at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Lukashenko regime is showing its true face as its political isolation and the country’s economic decline accelerate. But the solution is not unbridled repression, which will just exacerbate the tension. The government must heed the international community’s attempts to make it see reason.”The detained journalists, most of whom were released after a few hours, work for a wide range of media including Belgazeta, Vecherny Grodno, Intex-Press, Nasha Niva, Bretskaya Gazeta, RFE/RL’s Belarusian service, Tok FM, Radio Racyja, Evroradio, the Tut.by, Salidarnasts, Yezhednevnik and Ximik.info news websites, the Interfaks news agency and Russia’s NTV.The journalists who continue to be held are mostly freelancers or reporters working for newswebsites that the government does not register as news media.As far as Reporters Without Borders knows, at least five journalists arrested during yesterday’s demonstration are still being held by the police pending trial. They are:- Syarhey Kavalyu, freelance cameraman- Viktar Maslovich, Bobruisky Kuryer- Viktar Kachan, Bobruisky Kuryer- Syarhey Latsinski, Babruiski Rehiyanalny Portal- Alyaksandr Sushcheuski, Babruiski Rehiyanalny PortalPalina Zhuraulyova of Vecherny Grodno was injured at the time of her arrest. She has filed a complaint about the incident.Reporters Without Borders has been unable to establish the whereabouts of BelsatTV reporter Volha Rudnitskaya. It is believed she may also be in police custody.No date has so far been set for the trial of Ales Asiptsou, who has detained since 3 July. The trial of RFE/RL reporter Mikhal Karnevich is scheduled to take place later today.———————-06.07.2011 – Journalists get prison sentences terms for covering peaceful protestsAt least five journalists have been given sentences ranging from three to 12 days in prison for covering the “silent protests” that were staged in many Belarusian cities on 3 July.“The sole purpose of these jail sentences is to obstruct news coverage of the protests and to intimidate journalists who might be tempted to cover the next demonstrations,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Journalists have been systematically targeted since the start of the revolution via online social networks in June.“Previously, detained journalists were released after a few hours. These sentences show that the authorities are now cracking down more severely on the media. We urge the Belarusian government to allow journalists to work without risk of being beaten or thrown in prison.”The following four journalists who had been present at the demonstration in Hrodna were givenjail sentences on 4 July:- Belsat cameraman Alyaksandr Dzyanisau (10 days)- Yury Gumenyuk, the correspondent of Polskie Radio’s Belarusian service (12 days)- Belsat journalists Andrey Fralu and Mikalay Dzychenya (10 days each).Hanna Ilyina of the local news website Gorad (www.gorad.by) was sentenced to six days in prison on 4 July in Mahilyow. Two other Mahilyow-based journalists – Mikhail Karnevich, the correspondent of RFE/RL’s Belarusian service and BelaPAN correspondent Ales Asiptsu – haveyet to be tried and will probably also get jail terms.In Homyel, journalists working for the Silnye Novosti news website (www.odsgomel.org) reported that the local police were pressuring for its closure. A police officer went to its office on 2 July and attacked editor Yauhan Suvorau verbally and physically, accusing him of relaying protest calls.Reporters Without Borders also deplores a Supreme court decision upholding an information ministry warning to the independent newspaper Narodnaya Volya, which paves the way for its closure.—————————-04.07.2011 – Journalists and netizens harassed during peaceful protests At least 15 journalists were briefly detained during peaceful Independence Day protests throughout Belarus yesterday. In all, 300 to 400 people were arrested. A great deal of force was used by members of the security forces, many of them in plain clothes, to disperse protesters, who clapped and sang songs to express their discontent.Tear gas was used in Minsk against journalists who filmed and photographed what was happening. Following the same strategy adopted since the start of the anti-government demonstrations, the authorities staged concerts in several cities in order to occupy the main squares and deny access to the protesters.“Realizing the threat posed by use of the Internet to organize demonstrations, President Lukashenko’s regime is waging an all-out information war. More and more journalists covering protests are being arrested and the authorities are now directly targeting online social networks. The international community should keep reminding the government that journalists must be allowed to work and the Internet must be free for everyone to use.”A police officer snatched reporter Halina Abakunchyk’s camera but Abakunchyk, who works for the Belarusian service of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty, was able to recover it. Journalists arrested in Minsk, Hrodna, Homyel and Mahilyow included the correspondents of Evroradio, BelSat, Belorusy i Rynok, BelaPAN, Nasha Niva, the Polish radio station TOK FM and the local newspaper Motsnyia Naviny. Most of them were released within a few hours but some were due to be tried today, including Yury Gumenyuk and RFE/RL correspondent Mikhail Karnevich in Hrodna, BelaPAN journalist Ales Asiptsou in Mahilyow. Alyaksandr Dzyanisau was sentenced to 10 days in prison in Hrodna today, as was Ihar Bantsar for organizing an illegal protest against the trial of Gazeta Wyborcza correspondent Andrey Pachobut. Belsat cameraman Syarhey Kavalyou was arrested inside a courthouse today while covering the trial of colleagues arrested yesterday. It is not yet known whether he will be released or whether he will be detained and brought to trial.The authorities took care to restrict the number of foreign reporters likely to cover the protests. A BBC TV crew that was supposed to go to Minsk to cover the Independence Day festivities had its visas cancelled at the last moment. The visas had already been issued and the journalists had obtained the necessary accreditation.Reporters Nick Sturdee and Lucy Ash were notified of the withdrawal of their visas when they contacted the president’s office for permission to film the 3 July military parade. “I can only imagine why the decision was taken to prevent us from entering the country,” Sturdee told Reporters Without Borders. “But inasmuch as there was no (…) complaint about our previous reports, the logical explanation is that they want to restrict coverage of the current situation.” “Revolution via the social networks,” relayed on Twitter and the Russian-language equivalent of Facebook, Vkontakte, has been spreading fast in the past few weeks. “Silent protests” without slogans and banners were held in about 30 cities yesterday, following those held on 15, 22 and 29 June.At least nine journalists were arrested during the 22 June demonstrations. Two of them, Minsk based Aleh Hruzdzilovich (RFE/RL) and Lida-based Syarhey Karpenka (BelSat), were beaten. At least 13 journalists were arrested on 29 June, two were beaten and at least two cameramen had equipment smashed.The authorities have gone on the offensive on the Internet. The “Revolution via the social networks” group, which had 216,000 members, was closed by Vkontakte on 3 July, and re-opened today. In the meanwhile, the group re-formed at a new address but it only had 11,000 participants. The website of Radio Free Europe / Radio Liberty’s Belarusian service was yesterday the target of a Distributed Denial of Service attack that rendered in inaccessible for several hours.The hashtag #2206v1900, launched for the 22 June demonstrations, meanwhile continues to be widely used for posting information about the protests.Along the lines of the Chinese government’s invitations to dissidents to “take some tea,” some Belarusian Internet users have been invited to “preventive conversations” with the police in an attempt to persuade them not to take part in the protests. And the online activist Yevgeny Kutsko was fined 700,000 roubles (140 dollars) last week for posting a satirical article about local government politician Andrei Khudyk. Many bloggers and online media such as Euroradio.by have nonetheless covered the protests and a lot of videos of the protests have been posted on YouTube.At the same time as censoring the Internet, the authorities have also tried to use it to intimidate protesters. The interior minister has been using the Twitter account it created in April (@mvd_by) and the Minsk police department account it subsequently created (@GUVD_Minsk) to post warnings along the lines of “Anyone going to (…) Square will be held to account.”People trying to connect to Vkontakte have been reportedly redirected by Belarusian Internet service provider BelTelecom to websites containing malware. From early May to early June, at least seven websites were closed at the behest of the police, which was given new prerogatives under a law adopted on 1 March.

  • Holiday meal looks a bit different

    first_img Holiday meal looks a bit different WhatsApp Twitter TAGS  WhatsApp Pinterest By Digital AIM Web Support – December 23, 2020 Local Newscenter_img Facebook In a year that has included finding new ways to provide services, the Odessa Salvation Army has continued to do just that. This year, one of those ways will be an inaugural Christmas Dinner that will be put on at the shelter. “In the past years, we’ve done cookies with Santa where Santa would come in and have him help us distribute cookies and hot chocolate and games,” Odessa Salvation Army Captain Juan Gomez said. “This year, we’re not able to do that. Like our Thanksgiving meal, we decided to have a nice, home-style meal in our shelter. We’ll have ham cooked for that day and our shelter guests will come in and receive a gift bag and something that they can keep if they choose to.” The event will start at 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Odessa Salvation Army. “We’ve never done this before,” Gomez said. “This year, we’re trying to adapt. On most holidays, we leave the shelter open all day so that those who don’t have somewhere to go, they at least have a place to stay.” Even in a year that’s been filled with uncertainty from the pandemic and the economic losses people have faced, Gomez says, it’s been crucial for them to try and stay connected with people as much as they can, even with social distancing. “In the past our focus has been drawn across the spectrum we’re working with our shelter guests,” Gomez said. “This year, we’re trying to continue to keep them all in mind as we try to adapt our service.” Gomez says it won’t be too different from what the Salvation Army does on a daily basis when feeding people except that on Christmas, it’ll be more of a traditional holiday meal. He’s not sure how many people they’ll have on Friday. “On a daily basis, we expect to feed anywhere from 60-100 people,” Gomez said. “We would expect that on Christmas day. The difference is that on Christmas day, we expect the meal to be more home cooked. It’ll be a nicer meal in that instead of serving pasta. we’ll serve ham and some of the side dishes that you would see as well like we did with Thanksgiving.” Pinterest Twitter Facebook Previous articleHow to gift happiness in 2021Next articleEstudio revela que los inmigrantes estadounidenses ajustarán las celebraciones navideñas este año Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

The GSE priced its fifth offering through the Structured Agency Credit Risk (STACR) program this year and 22nd overall was priced at $795 million, according to an announcement from Freddie Mac on Wednesday.The STACR program began in July 2013 as a way for Freddie Mac to transfer a portion of credit risk on single-family loans to investors in the private capital market, according to Freddie Mac.The latest STACR offering, STACR 2016-DNA3, includes a reference pool of newly acquired single-family mortgages with an aggregate unpaid principal balance (UPB) of approximately $26.4 billion, Freddie Mac reported.With the first 21 offerings, Freddie Mac’s STACR issuances to date covered 29.38 percent of the agency’s total book of business.

The FHFA has been conservator for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac since September 2008.“We created the agency credit securities asset class in 2013 and have since issued more than $15 billion in STACR debt notes,” said Mike Reynolds, vice president of Credit Risk Transfer for Freddie Mac, in early May. “With (STACR 2016-DNA2, priced on May 3), we saw that market conditions have continued to improve from their lows earlier this year.”“It looks like this asset class is here to stay and is helping us access multiple pockets of capital.”Kevin Palmer, Freddie MacFreddie Mac has three more STACR offerings planned for the remainder of the year for a total of eight in 2016 after issuing eight in 2015, seven in 2014, and two in 2013.On May 20, Freddie Mac announced that the STACR debt notes program had received the prestigious “RMBS Deal of the Year” award by GlobalCapital, a leading financial news and data service covering the capital markets.“The agency credit securities market will celebrate its third birthday in June,” said Kevin Palmer, senior vice president of Credit Risk Transfer for Freddie Mac. “It looks like this asset class is here to stay and is helping us access multiple pockets of capital.” Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Freddie Mac Offloads More Risk to Private Investors Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily last_img read more
