The Inverted Warehouse/Townhouse is an addition and renovation of a Tribeca loft building. The existing structure, a traditional New York warehouse covers the entire lot, consuming the exterior space traditional in domestic construction. Inverting the conventional townhouse organization recovers this coveted ground. Dissipating energy into the dark center of this converted warehouse, three double story voids animate the missing “garden” of the townhouse providing light, air, and visual contemplation.

Exterior court, reading court, and playroom are suspended into the void. Conceived as new construction built upside down into an existing building, they dissipate a radiant energy into the host. Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSelf structuring corten steel panels are suspended into the voids, their shingle style layering allowing the frameless burgundy glass to float down through the walls. The suspended corten structure extends into the double height volume of the playroom with two story shelving. Continuing the flow of dissipating energy, the downward trajectory opens the floors of the lower levels, inserting two glass floors. Framed with rolled corten sections, they connect the spaces vertically while opening them to light. Countering the downward hanging of spaces is a courtyard layer of silicone-glazed glass, which lifts delicately to the skyline.

Opening onto the tense juxtaposition of exterior and interior voids, the garden lifts to the rooftop while the stair court descends into the private spaces. Two sequences separate public and private routes through these spaces. The upward route joins the public spaces, ending in a continuous roof deck inhabiting the larger space of the city. The downward route traces the inversion into the bedrooms, playrooms, and study through the stair, culminating in the glass floors and extending a view back up through all the gardens to the sky.

Each year since 1967, students in the Yale School of Architecture’s professional degree program have designed and built a structure in the summer after their second semester. Founded by Charles Moore as the first academic design-build program in the country, the early years of the Yale Building Project resulted in community centers and campgrounds in Appalachia and New England. Since 1989, the Building Project has created homes for over 50 New Haven families.Save this picture!Floor PlanStudents participating in this year’s Jim Vlock First Year Building Project—created in partnership with Columbus House, a New Haven-based homelessness services provider—have designed a two-unit home in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood. This home, clad in shingles, makes extensive use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, an innovative and sustainable wood product, for structural and insulated vertical and horizontal surfaces. The panels were trimmed offsite and then craned in, continuing experiments in prefabrication that began in last year’s project.Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanThe prefabrication and panelized nature of the structural elements allowed the students to spend more time working out details in the house, including a long row of skylights along the ridge of the roof, bringing natural light into the double-height spaces of both living units. A sliding interior window shutter in an upper floor bedroom allows a range of natural lighting and view options for residents. These apertures contrast with the exposed natural wood surface of the CLT panels which bring warmth to the interior spaces; cove lighting along the top of the CLT panels bathes the underside of the pitched roof. Eventually, the roof will host an array of solar panels installed by New Haven Community Solar.Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanSave this picture!Section 1Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanFirst-year students formed into design teams in the spring of 2018, each proposing a different scheme responding to the same material and site demands. The winning proposal was selected by a design jury on May 1, 2018, and then was refined by students into a drawing set. The students then spent the summer trimming CLT panels at Yale’s West Campus and assembling the structure on site in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood. This year’s house is the second built in a five-year collaboration with Columbus House, and the two units will welcome two formerly homeless New Haven families.Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanProject gallerySee allShow lessUmi-Play Children’s Dramatic Arts Center / AntiStatics ArchitectureSelected ProjectsHOOP Dance Gathering Place / Brook McIlroySelected Projects Share United States 2018 Jim Vlock First Year Building Project / Yale School of Architecture “COPY” Manufacturers: VELUX Commercial, Firestone Building Products, Kohler, Pella EFCO, Rich Brilliant Willing, SmartLam, Foxblock, New Haven Community Solar Projects CopyAbout this officeYale School of ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew HavenUnited StatesPublished on December 13, 2018Cite: “2018 Jim Vlock First Year Building Project / Yale School of Architecture” 13 Dec 2018.

Supreme court judge dismisses charges against The News crime reporter

first_imgNews Receive email alerts PakistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders today welcomed the findings of a police investigation submitted to supreme court judge Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry yesterday clearing The News journalist Shakeel Anjum of any involvement in the murder of three arms traffickers. The judge, who had ordered the enquiry, dismissed all charges against Anjum.The case dates back to May 2005 when Anjum, a crime reporter, wrote a story implicating a police officer, Idrees Rathore, in the summary execution of two youths. Rathore, who was never investigated in connection with the double murder, saw a chance for revenge when the three arms traffickers were murdered last month. He pressured a witness into saying that Anjum was corrupt and had intervened to get the forensic report changed.Anjum’s investigative reporting is credited with helping to reduce corruption within the police force.———————————————-19.09.06Police beat up, censor and harass journalistsReporters Without Borders expressed indignation after police beat three TV journalists and then forced technicians to pull the plug on a report of the attack being shown on ARYONE World (ARY TV).The assault on the three journalists – Wadood Mushtaq, Zahid Malik and Nazir Awan – and the subsequent censorship of the TV news occurred in Lahore, Punjab province on 16 September.Elsewhere, a police officer accused a journalist on The News of murder in reprisal for an article he had written implicating him in extra-judicial killings.The 16 September incident began when Wadood Mushtaq of ARY TV saw police attack Nazir Awan of ATV during a religious party rally in Lahore. He told his cameraman, Zahid Malik, to film the scene while he tried to intervene. Police then turned on the two journalists from ARY TV, raining blows on them before taking them to a police station.At the insistence of the local authorities they were taken to hospital. Mushtaq had serious injuries to his face and jaw while Awan was left with a broken arm and swelling all over his body. The cameraman suffered a spinal injury.Later the same evening, police from each district of Punjab ordered technicians of all the cable operators to cut the ARY TV broadcast which was showing footage on a loop of the police assault which it described as “torture”.A few hours later, Punjab’s Chief Minister, Pervaiz Elahi, suspended police officers Mukhtar and Younas Shah, who were implicated in the incidents. The organisation which regulates the electronic media, PEMRA, called the police order “illegal and un-constitutional”.”We were disturbed to hear about these press freedom violations committed by Pakistani police officers,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.”Police assaulting journalists is sadly a common event in Pakistan, but for these same police officers to censor their media is utterly unacceptable. The government’s suspension of the two officers implicated in this case is an encouraging move, but which does nothing to hide the failure to impose more severe penalties in previous cases.”Elsewhere, Shakeel Anjum, who specialises in crime reporting for the daily The News – and whose home was recently targeted – has just been accused by police of involvement in a triple murder. He told Reporters Without Borders, “It’s a continuation of an old case.”He explained that the police officer, Idrees Rathore, was seeking revenge on him – over a May 2005 article about Rathore’s implication in the extra-judicial killing of two young men – by including the journalist’s name on a charge sheet in a murder case. Despite evidence put forward in Anjum’s article, the officer was never questioned.Reporters Without Borders urged the government to take steps to remove the journalist’s name from the file and that Rathore be punished for this abuse of power.”Both these cases reveal the difficult climate in which journalists in this country have to work,” it added.The Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) called on the Pakistani government not to allow the country to drift into becoming a police state.

Judge says publishing freedom pioneer must remain in detention

first_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns an Istanbul judge’s decision on 1 November to keepcolumnist and publisher Ragip Zarakolu in detention until a prosecutor has drawn up anindictment, which in Turkey could take months or even years. Arrested alongwith dozens of other activists under Turkey’s anti-terrorism laws on 28 October (see below),Zarakolu was immediately transferred from police custody to Istanbul’s Metris prison.“It seems the Turkish judicial system has decided to make Zarakolu pay for being a free speechactivist,” Reporters Without Borders said. “A journalist of international renown and respectedhuman rights defender, it is now his turn to be a victim of the two of the judicial system’s failings– misuse of terrorism charges to stifle criticism and misuse of the provisions for pre-trial detention.”The press freedom organization added: “Keeping a media figure of this importance in detention,although he is in very poor health,” sends a very bad signal to the media. We demand hisimmediate release.”Zarakolu runs the Belge publishing house, writes columns for the daily Günlük Evrensel andchairs the freedom to publish committee of the Turkish Publishers Union (TYB). As with manyother journalists who are currently detained, it is absurd think he might “destroy evidence, putpressure on witnesses or take flight” – the grounds for ordering pre-trial detention under Turkishlaw.Zarakolu was one of around 90 people who were picked up last week in a vast operationtargeting presumed “collaborators” of the Union of Kurdistan Communities (KCK), a networkaffiliated to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).At prosecutor Adnan Cimen’s request, 47 of them were transferred to prison when thelegally-permitted period of police custody expired. As well as Zarakolu, they included SongülKaratagna, who writes for Özgür Gündem, a pro-Kurdish newspaper that Zarakolu used to edit.Hundreds of people – among them the widow of the murdered journalist Hrant Dink andrepresentatives of several political parties including the BDP, which is pro-Kurd, and the CHP,which is Kemalist (Turkish nationalist and secularist) – protested against the arrests outsidethe law courts in the Istanbul district of Besiktas on 31 October, waving placards saying “That’senough!”Even the leading conservative journalist Fehmi Koru criticized the latest developments in the KCKinvestigation when he appeared on Kanal 7 TV on the evening of 31 October. Many Turkish andinternational media organizations have voiced support for Zarakolu, who won the internationalPublishers Association’s freedom to publish prize in 2008 and the prize of the Turkish JournalistsAssociation (TGC) in 2007.—-31.10.2011 Columnist and publisher arrested in round-up of pro-Kurdish activistsReporters Without Borders strongly condemns columnist and publisher Ragip Zarakolu’s detention since the evening of 28 October, when he and around 40 other people were arrested in a round-up of pro-Kurdish activists in Istanbul. “Turkey’s anti-terrorist law is yet again being abused in an attempt to silence those who speak out about the sensitive issue of minorities,” Reporters Without Borders said, calling for his immediate release. Zarakolu writes for the left-wing daily Günlük Evrensel and heads the Editions Belge publishing house in Istanbul.The arrests were carried out as part of an investigation into the Union of Kurdistan Communities (KCK), a group affiliated to the banned Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).No official reason has so far been given for Zarakolu’s arrest. His lawyer, Özcan Kiliç, said he was questioned about several articles he wrote for the pro-Kurdish magazine Özgur Gündem, in which he referred to trips abroad since 2001, and about his participation in the inauguration of the Istanbul Political Academy, which was searched on 28 October.He appeared today before a prosecutor in Istanbul.Last March he was convicted of terrorist propaganda for publishing a book by the author Mehmet Güler entitled “The global state and the stateless Kurds”. He appealed against the conviction and the case is currently before Turkey’s highest court of appeal. News April 2, 2021 Find out more Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Organisation —–02.08.2010 – Another trial against Kurdish minority publicationReporters Without Borders condemns the department of public prosecution’s decision to bring a new prosecution against writer Mehmet Güler and publisher Ragip Zarakolu. This time they are to be prosecuted for a book about the political system that the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) would like to introduce.In a trial due to begin on 30 September before an Istanbul assizes court, Güler and Zarakolu are facing at least eight months in prison if convicted on charges of “publishing PKK statements” and “PKK propaganda.” The PKK has been waging an armed struggle for Kurdish independence since 1984 and is on a government list of terrorist organisations.Published by Editions Belges and entitled “The KCK File: Global State and Kurds without a State”, the book was immediately confiscated and banned when it was made available at a book fair in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir in May. “KCK” are the initials of the “democratic confederalism” that the PKK proposes for Turkey.Prosecutor Hakan Karaali is bringing his case under articles 6 and 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Law, which has been used to prosecute many Kurdish journalists and news media, and to impose long jail terms.Zarakolu said he published the book in order to satisfy “the right of readers to information” and to present “an alternative version of the facts.” Güler said he “avoided using language that is to anyone’s benefit or detriment.” The author added: “The Kurdish political parties are banned. Former ministers, intellectuals, human rights activists and lawyers are jailed. Citizens have a right to know what is going on. I wrote this book in an entirely objective manner.”Güler and Zarakolu have just been tried before another Istanbul court of assizes in connection with an earlier book, entitled “Decisions harder to take than death.” The court acquitted Zarakolu but sentenced Güler to 15 months in prison on 10 June on a charge of PKK propaganda.Reporters Without Borders is worried about the situation of press freedom and media in Turkey amid mounting judicial harassment of journalists, especially those working for Kurdish media. It particularly concerned about new resolutions regarding TV news broadcasts that the government adopted on 15 July.Interior minister Besir Atalay announced that the Radio and TV Supreme Council had decided, in agreement with national TV station executives, that “certain principles must be followed in situations of terrorist risk and other extraordinary circumstances.” Under these “principles,” TV stations undertake to limit the length and frequency of news flashes.Another resolution, which has all the hallmarks of a veiled warned to the media, stressed that TV executives had a duty to avoid broadcasting “programmes, interviews or statements that appear to justify terrorist actions or are likely to be interpreted as propaganda on behalf of the people responsible for attacks or as encouraging future attacks.”The interior minister hailed “these very decisive positions regarding terrorism” but the Contemporary Association of Journalists has warned that they are “likely to result in abuses.”Reporters Without Borders fears that the vague working of these resolutions will be open to different interpretations and will encourage TV stations to censor themselves. Combined with the Anti-Terrorism Law, they could provide the authorities with new grounds for arbitrary arrests and prosecutions.

Palmer (born Margaret Ann Niedringhaus in 1915, Pittsburgh, PA) was an invaluable patron and leader of the museum from its origin as the Pacificulture Foundation in 1960. Without her inspired efforts the museum would not be the respected establishment it is today. From her earliest involvement as the founding board President of the Pacificulture Foundation from 1964 – 1971, to her committed service and leadership on the board of the Pacific Asia Museum (founding board president 1971 – 1973), Palmer was a consistent advocate for the intercultural preservation and dissemination of art and culture. She was an important figure in the formative years of the museum, a pillar of strength and determination, and her legacy here will not soon be forgotten.Longtime museum member, volunteer and storyteller Sunny Stevenson says, “The museum was founded because she felt that peace in the world must begin with an understanding and appreciation of people, customs and cultures different from our own. If it were not for her grace, charm, enthusiasm and perseverance, we would not be enjoying an exciting place that is still growing and developing in even greater ways.”Palmer graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology in the School of Fine Arts/Drama Department, Pittsburgh, PA, in 1936. She was a member of the Beta Pi Sorority (currently Kappa Kappa Gamma). She then attended Parson’s School of Design in New York City, where she began her career in fashion design and modeling. After marrying Everett Arthur Palmer, Jr. in 1941, they moved to Pasadena in 1946. Margaret then modeled for I. Magnin & Company and Bullock’s Wilshire.Palmer’s community service was extensive, from the American Red Cross in 1942 to the Assistance League of Pasadena, Pasadena Sister City Committee, Pasadena Art Alliance, Girls Club of Pasadena, and Parent Teacher Associations of San Marino and Pasadena school districts. She was also a member of the Valley Hunt Club, Caltech Associates, Newport Harbor Yacht Club, and the Far Eastern Arts Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.The Palmer family will hold a memorial service for Margaret Palmer on Saturday, May 16, 2015 in the museum’s courtyard from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for the public. No reservations are required, and admission to the museum will be free for non-members attending the memorial.The Palmer family has also generously established the Margaret N. Palmer Memorial Fund for USC Pacific Asia Museum. To donate to this fund in her memory, please contact Sandra Chen Lau at tel. (626) 449-2742 ext. 33 or [email protected]last_img read more

After a few a major setback in 2011, when a windstorm put them out of business for five days, Mother Moo returned to normal production and has been growing ever since. She recently opened Moo on Mission where Buster’s used to be. Klemes has always loved the kitchen arts like gardening and baking but decided to make ice cream after taking a course at Penn State. Klemens likes cold ice cream and uses minimal ingredients to achieve a smooth texture. The vanilla ice cream has only six ingredients and each batch is made in their San Marino store. Mother Moo isn’t just ice cream. They’re also known for their butter crust pies, baked goods, sandwiches, root beer floats and coffee drinks. Klemens plans to add more savory food to the menu so that everyone can find something that strikes their mood. She hopes to create an inclusive family and community space. With special touches like a communal table and outdoor seating, Mother Moo provides a welcoming atmosphere. “Ice cream is a universal food and it makes people happy,” she said. One of her favorite parts of the business is watching her customers grow and keeping up with their lives. Klemens explains that ice cream is a family food and many people bring their children and extended family to Mother Moo. First Heatwave Expected Next Week As part of Mother Moo’s mission statement,  Klemens focuses on sourcing local ingredients from small businesses and farmers. Klemens supports Gravenstein Apple Fair in Sebastopol, a farmer dedicated to preserving the Gravenstein apple. This variety of apple has a short shelf life and is in danger of being replaced by more shelf-stable apples. They are one of the only orchards that still cultivate this apple. [Editor’s Note: This story erroneously stated that Mother Moo’s original location was in San Marino. It was not. It was actually in Sierra Madre. The story as been corrected.] Although Pasadena seems to have perpetual summer, ice cream shop success is still measured by season. Karen Klemens explains that summer is the number one season for ice cream sales but they serve scoops all year long. In fact, she prefers her ice cream in the winter.

Part of the scheme focuses on skills and part is aboutbehavioural skills – making it clear we expect them to turn up on time everyday.”Train companies havebacked the programme by providing half-price tickets for the next two years.The New Deal schemehas been criticised by business for producing low-quality trainees.
