GARDEN After reflecting on the urban parameters of the “Garden City”, we took advantage of the uniqueness of the rules assigned to the site. We designed the building to appear to be floating over a garden that is oriented to the south, invaded by sunlight during the mid-day. The proposal multiplies the space for the garden, releasing the ground floor and letting the sun from the south to filter through the space. DOMESTIC-COMMON AREA Save this picture!© Javier OriveWe proposed a new relationship between domestic space and the multi-family home, capturing the qualities of the first and exporting them to the latter. Each home faces outward with a single window that invites residents to enjoy the great urban landscape. From the outside, each window is a home. Each of the 35 houses have their own identity within the communal space, without losing the sense of unity of the whole building. SPATIAL RELATIONSHIPS Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWith continuous visual crossings within the interior areas, we add value to the spaces of this set of privately developed housing. We also placed special attention to framing the urban landscape outside, using windows to bring the exterior into private spaces.Save this picture!© Javier OriveProject gallerySee allShow lessCultural Center and Sports Facility Proposal / PARKArticlesARTCUBE Exhibition / Brandon ShigetaArticlesProject locationAddress:Paseo de las Delicias, 1, 41001 Sevilla, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

But the spring was short-lived and arbitrary arrests soon resumed under the new regime”, Reporters Without Borders said. March 8, 2021 Find out more Two journalists and eight other pro-democracy activists who signed the Damascus Declaration, an appeal for “radical democratic change,” were brought before a judge in Damascus yesterday, six weeks after the start of a wave of arrests, and were formally charged with attacking the prestige of the state, publishing false information, membership of a secret organisation aimed at destabilising the state and fuelling ethnic and racial tension.“Bashar al-Assad led people to believe that a page had been turned when he became president in June 2000,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He spoke of his desire to modernise the state and actively combat corruption. Several political activists and journalists felt sufficiently confident to call for an end to the state of emergency and a return to the rule of law. But the spring was short-lived and arbitrary arrests soon resumed under the new regime. The Damascus Declaration’s signatories are the latest victims.”Those who appeared in court yesterday were Fida’a Al-Horani, president of the executive bureau of the National Council of the Damascus Declaration, Akram Al-Bunni, its general secretary, Ahmad To’meh, Jaber Al-Shufi, Mohammed Darwish, Marwan Al-Aashi, Walid Bunni, Mohammad Yasser Al-Iti and journalists Fayez Sara and Ali Abdallah.After being formally notified of the charges under articles 285, 286, 306 and 307 of the criminal code, for which they face between three and 15 years in prison, they were questioned for about four hours by the investigating judge. Khalil Maatuk, one of the defence lawyers, said they denied all the charges.“They tried to convince the judge of the peaceful and patriotic nature of their initiative, which aspires to bring about democratic change without any foreign influence,” Maatuk said.The judge ordered pre-trial detention. They were all transferred to Adra prison (in a Damascus suburb), except Horani, who was taken to Duma women’s prison.On the same subject:4.01.2008 – Journalist who signed Damascus Declaration held incommunicado 18.12.07 – Journalist Ali Abdallah back in prison News Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Receive email alertslast_img read more

MOH recipient to receive highest Indiana honor

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Governor Eric J. Holcomb will present Vietnam veteran and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. 1st Class Sammy L. Davis of Freedom, Indiana with the 2018 Sachem Award, the state’s highest honor, at a ceremony Monday, March 12, 2018.“Sammy’s story of service, courage and sacrifice for our nation and freedom is a true inspiration for all Americans,” Gov. Holcomb said. “In sharing his exceptional personal story, Sammy spreads an important and timeless message that grit and perseverance can help all of us overcome even the most challenging circumstances.”The Sachem is given annually to recognize a lifetime of excellence and moral virtue that has brought credit and honor to Indiana. Previous recipients include Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor (2017), Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, former president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame and world statesman (2006), and long-time businessman and civic leader P.E. MacAllister (2014). Sammy Davis will be the second Sachem honoree named by Gov. Holcomb.Davis, 71, received the Congressional Medal of Honor from President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1968 for his “extraordinary heroism at the risk of his life.”In 1967, then Army Pfc. Davis served as a cannoneer with the 4th Artillery Regiment of the 9th Infantry Division in South Vietnam. His unit fell under heavy machine-gun fire and mortar attack by the Vietcong while defending a firebase west of the city of Cai Lay.Davis used a machine gun to provide cover for the members of his unit so they could return fire with artillery. Although wounded, Davis took over a burning howitzer and fired several rounds at the Vietcong. As a result, he sustained further injury—including a broken back. He then crossed a river on an air mattress to rescue his wounded comrades before joining another howitzer site to continue fighting the North Vietnamese until they fled.He continued to serve throughout the Vietnam War, though his severe injuries kept him from the battlefield. Davis served out the remainder of the war as a cook. He retired from the Army in 1984.In addition to his Medal of Honor, Davis has been awarded a Silver Star, Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.Davis is actively engaged in the Boy Scouts of America organization and entered scouting when he was nine. He is involved with many veteran and service organizations, church, the Masonic Lodge and is especially dedicated to speaking to America’s youth. He and his wife, Dixie, live in Freedom, Indiana. They have both authored books about their life experiences and the importance of endurance and courage.Davis’ motto throughout his life is also the title of his book: You Don’t Lose ‘Til You Quit Trying.Sachem (Say-chum) background:In 1970, Gov. Edgar D. Whitcomb introduced the “Confederacy of the Sachem,” a group of business, industry, publishing, banking and legal leaders, who served as state hosts, welcoming visitors to Indiana and promoting the state’s culture and economy. The organization’s name came from the Algonquin term applied to village leaders, implying wisdom, judgment and grace.Bylaws outlined that Sachems were to nominate and recommend Sagamore appointments to the governor. The Sagamore of the Wabash dates to the term of Gov. Ralph Gates in 1945 and has been the state’s highest honor bestowed by the governor.Following Whitcomb’s term, the Sachem project was not pursued, and the organization dissolved in 1989. Whitcomb visited Gov. Daniels in 2005 to acquaint him with the concept and to give him custody of remaining Sachem funds. Gov. Daniels recreated the Sachem to underscore the importance of moral example; achievement alone without exemplary virtue does not qualify a person for this recognition.Twelve Sachem awards have been bestowed since the honor was revived in 2005:2005:John Wooden—Legendary college basketball coach, teacher and mentor.2006:Rev. Theodore Hesburgh—Former president of the University of Notre Dame and world statesman.2007:Jane Blaffer Owen—Philanthropist and preservationist of New Harmony.2008: Bill and Gloria Gaither—Grammy winning singer/songwriter duo from Alexandria, Indiana.2009: Donald C. “Danny” Danielson—New Castle business and civic leader.2010:Carl D. Erskine—Civic leader and legendary baseball player.2011:William A. “Bill” Cook—Philanthropist and cofounder of Cook Inc.2012:Ian M. Rolland—CEO of Lincoln National Corp.2013: Don Wolf—Civic leader and CEO of Do It Best, Corp.2014:P.E. MacAllister—Long-time businessman and civic leader.2015:Amos C. Brown, III—Radio host and civic leader.2016:None.2017:Eva Mozes Kor – Holocaust survivor; forgiveness and civility crusader.Each Sachem honoree receives a specially designed sculpture that captures the Native American heritage of the Sachem. All Sachem recipients are selected by Indiana’s governor.last_img read more

Cricket News BCCI Issues Showcause Notice To Dinesh Karthik For Attending CPL Match

first_imgNew Delhi: The BCCI has issued a showcause notice to out-of-favour India player Dinesh Karthik for attending a promotional event of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) franchise Trinbago Knight Riders, which is owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.The 34-year-old Karthik, who was a controversial pick in India’s World Cup squad, was seen in Trinbago Knight Riders dressing room and attending their opening CPL match against St Kitts & Nevis in Port of Spain.“Yes, Dinesh Karthik has been issued a showcause notice by the BCCI. We have received photographs where Karthik is seen in the dressing room of Trinbago Knight Riders. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri has issued a showcause notice asking him to explain why his central contract shouldn’t be annulled,” a senior BCCI official, privy to the development told PTI on condition of anonymity.The BCCI got a screen grab of Karthik, who played 26 Tests, 94 ODIs and 32 T20Is for India, seen wearing Trinbago Knight Riders jersey and relaxing in the dressing room along side Brendon McCullum.It is learnt that Karthik, who is the captain of Shah Rukh Khan co-owned franchise Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, didn’t seek any permission from the BCCI to attend the event in the West Indies.“As a centrally contracted cricketer, Dinesh Karthik had no business being seen in a franchise league which is not IPL. His central contract prevents him from being associated with any private league as it has been the BCCI clause for all active first-class cricketers,” the senior official said.Karthik wasn’t available for comment but it is expected that he would be tendering unconditional apology as the National One Day Championship for the Vijay Hazare Trophy starts on September 24, where he is expected to turn up for Tamil Nadu.The Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper-batsman’s international career is believed to be all but over after his failure in the World Cup having scored 8 and 6 in two games that he batted. His susceptible technique in bowler-friendly conditions was badly exposed after his selection in the national team without any proper ODI performance created a furore.

Football: Wisconsin’s revamped passing attack making up for struggling running game

first_imgThe Wisconsin football team reached the highest single-season average for passing yards per game in 2011, when now-Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw for 234.3 yards per game and Paul Chryst was in his final season as the team’s offensive coordinator.Wilson then left for the NFL, while Chryst took a head coaching job at Pittsburgh. For the next few seasons, Wisconsin dominated games on the ground behind the likes of Montee Ball, James White and last season’s Heisman trophy finalist Melvin Gordon.As the running game was dominating, the passing game was struggling, and for the most part, Wisconsin’s offensive game plan had a fairly predictable identity each year.Ground and pound.This season, while Wilson isn’t back under center for the Badgers, Chryst is back after his stint with Pittsburgh to serve as the leading man for UW, and his presence is already being felt after the first two games of the season.Fifth-year quarterback Joel Stave — who is coming off a year where he threw for just 135 yards per game — is currently averaging 34.5 passes and 245.5 yards per game through Wisconsin’s first two contests. The Badger passing attack as a whole looks revamped and vastly improved when compared to that of previous years.And whether or not it is Chryst who should take credit, proving the core’s worth was something fifth-year senior receiver Alex Erickson took to heart.“I don’t know if it was [Chryst] coming here, but I think as a group we took it personal that we were going to be a strength of this team,” Erickson said. “I think as a wide receiver core we have really done that and it is starting to show on Saturdays.”It is also a matter of circumstance, as junior running back Corey Clement is still nursing a hamstring injury while the team is working three new offensive linemen into their starting lineup.Both scenarios have hurt the running game’s production and resulted in Stave throwing more times and for more yards than anyone may have expected.But despite Stave’s previous struggles and UW’s history of being a run-dominant team, it has not hurt the team’s efficiency on offense, something that may not be the case under any other coach or any other offensive scheme.“Obviously coach Chryst is going to do what he does, run his system and not worry about what’s happened in the past,” Erickson said. “But, I think guys have really adapted to him and guys have really grown into the offense.”Now, with Clement expected to be out until the Big Ten opener against Iowa, the passing game will continue to be relied upon and Stave’s numbers should continue to surpass those of Wilson’s record-breaking season.After two contests, Wisconsin has thrown for 491 yards and rushed for just 228.For offensive coordinator Joe Rudolph — so long as Stave and his receivers remain productive — that is entirely all right.“I think you play to what your team is doing well,” Rudolph said. “I think Joel’s doing a nice job making decisions with the ball and I think each game is its own entity. You go in with a plan and you kind of play to what’s going well.”Stave has the same kind of mindset, as he trusts Chryst will continue to make the right calls and work to make the offense run as efficient as possible.“I know Coach Chryst calls the games based off of how he’s feeling, how the flow of the game is going,” Stave said. “I think that’s worked well for him for many years.”Only time will tell what direction this Wisconsin offensive is going, as it is very dependent on the health of their lead running back, the effectiveness of the backups and the growing chemistry of the offensive line.But for now, as the Badgers take on this offensive style that may favor going through the air rather than on the ground, Erickson and his fellow receivers will continue to take advantage of their opportunities and continue to have fun while doing so.“It’s fun when you look over and Rob [Wheelright] is catching touchdowns and [Austin] Traylor is catching a touchdown,” Erickson said. “It’s fun to be out there competing and trying to be better every single week.”last_img read more
