A house of 700 m2 where the context is the concept: the interior is the exterior and the exterior becomes architecture. There is no distinction, the house is a terrace that, by means of a few steps and a pool, is shaping what is the garden and the rest area.Save this picture!© César Béjar EstudioSave this picture!Upper floor planSave this picture!© César Béjar EstudioThere is a certain tension between the materials, a certain contrast between granite, steel, wood and the color white; The solid and the light. A granite basement that is embedded in the ground, a stone pedestal that in the front blocks the facade but that in the back makes it disappear and becomes lighter: a beam and a series of supports covered in parota wood. A white curtain appears that moves with the wind, blurs the light and oscillates inside and outside the house creating an almost ethereal atmosphere.Save this picture!© César Béjar EstudioSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© César Béjar EstudioInside, the house is a space for play, collection, recreation; spaces dedicated to music, toys, cinema, a house with personality, designed by an architect and his client, who feels more than just materials and form, live by his objects and furniture. 2019 Cannes House / TAFF Arquitectos Cannes House / TAFF ArquitectosSave this projectSaveCannes House / TAFF ArquitectosSave this picture!© César Béjar Estudio+ 23Curated by Clara Ott Share Save this picture!© César Béjar EstudioProject gallerySee allShow lessSchool Of Thought – School that redefines learningIdeasFoodhallen Den Haag Foodcourt / Studio ModijefskySelected Projects Share Architects: TAFF Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Area:  700 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs “COPY” Projects Houses Blanca Huerta Gutiérrez, Carlos Gaviola Moya, Daniel Berna Gálvez Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Sika, Crestron, Saint-Gobain, Berloni, Comex, Cuprum, Firenze, Grupo Tenerife, Helvex, Hunter Douglas, Llano de la Torre, Perdura Mexico Lead Architects: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930007/cannes-house-taff-arquitectos Clipboard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930007/cannes-house-taff-arquitectos Clipboard Photographs:  César Béjar Estudio Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeTAFF ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCancúnMexicoPublished on December 11, 2019Cite: “Cannes House / TAFF Arquitectos” [Casa Cannes / TAFF Arquitectos] 11 Dec 2019.

Who’s Afraid to See “Kill the Messenger”?

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York [dropcap]B[/dropcap]efore I read the reviews or heard from my peers, I knew I had to see the new political thriller, “Kill the Messenger,” starring Jeremy Renner as the tragic investigative reporter Gary Webb, who uncovered a connection between Nicaragua’s Contras, crack cocaine and the CIA. As an ink-stained wretch myself, I also knew it was my duty to see this quasi-indie film in a movie theatre, an obsolescent venue fated to disappear just like newsprint.Now I want everybody to see this requiem for my profession, this homage to the orneriest heroes of the Fourth Estate who fight for the truth against all odds. And I want Renner, who’s been an Oscar nominee twice—for the lead role in “The Hurt Locker” and for his supporting role in “The Town”—to get the Hollywood statuette he deserves. You gotta love him.As David Denby wrote in The New Yorker, “Renner’s Gary Webb is an ebullient creation… He makes Webb a hot-tempered, explosive, slam-bang guy, bright, impatient, explosive and wounding.”I was deeply affected by his portrayal of a journalist driven to the brink of despair, whose marriage collapses when his wife loses faith in him after his editors and publisher have buckled under and undercut him. I know how disruptive it can be to your home life when a story gets a hold of you and won’t let go. And I’ve seen the arrogance of editors clashing with the ambition of reporters, and the incessant conflict between gatekeepers and gatecrashers. It takes courage to speak truth to power. Usually mediocrity and banality win out. It’s: “How did we let that get in the paper?” Not: “Let’s go with what we’ve got.”In Webb’s case, he went up against the weight of the CIA, the violence of drug smugglers and the collusion of America’s top three dailies. Writing a three-part series for the San Jose Mercury News in 1996 called “Dark Alliance,” he chronicled how the Contras trafficked in cocaine to fund their fight against the Sandinistas in the 1980s while the agency looked the other way, even if the coke ended up in the hands of “Freeway” Ricky Ross, a notorious crack dealer in South Central L.A.The Los Angeles Times had called Ross the “one outlaw capitalist most responsible for flooding Los Angeles’ streets with mass-marketed cocaine.” But when Webb’s series came out in San Jose, California’s top paper assigned 17 reporters and published 20,000 words to rebut it. The Los Angeles Times was joined by The Washington Post in debunking his reporting while The New York Times raked over his entire career to portray him as a reporter reckless with the facts. Getting scooped by a second tier media outlet had really gotten them hot under the collar, and the top brass suspended their skepticism when their sources at the CIA told them what they were only too willing to hear.Screenwriter Peter Landesman based the movie on Webb’s own 1999 book, “Dark Alliance,” which has just been reissued, and Nick Schou’s “Kill the Messenger: How the CIA’s Crack-Cocaine Controversy Destroyed Journalist Gary Webb,” which came out in 2006, two years after Webb’s suicide.It was directed by Michael Cuesta, a Long Island native, whose resumé includes many episodes of Showtimes’ “Homeland,” and it was filmed by Sean Bobbitt, the cinematographer for “12 Years a Slave.” Add those credits to the roster of top-notch actors who did their own star turns in this movie—Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia, Ray Liotta, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosemarie DeWitt, Paz Vega, and Oliver Platt—and it’s not hard to understand why it deserves to be widely seen.I find myself feeling so proprietary about this movie that I can barely tolerate any criticism of it, even though I know that it is far from perfect, because I immediately think the critic is doing the same thing the big three papers did once before: destroy the reputation of a good American journalist by pointing out his character flaws. Fortunately, I have company.Calling it “the best newspaper movie since ‘All the President’s Men,’” the Daily News’ Denis Hamill pulled no punches about “how a few of the elite weasels of my own business conspired with CIA smear merchants to destroy a terrific reporter’s life… They deconstructed and attacked his reporting. They dug into his past sex life. They destroyed his marriage and wrecked his career, and he wound up dead with two bullets in his head, which authorities ruled a suicide.”In his review, Denby concluded with a sentence that one of my former colleagues dubbed the best last line of the year:“Even his skeptics would have to admit that he must have been a very strong-willed man to shoot himself in the head twice.”Schou’s book depicts the downward spiral that Webb, who’d been fighting depression all his adult life, took until he reached his own demise. Schou, who’s been an investigative reporter at OC Weekly in California, doesn’t believe anyone else but Webb fired those two shots. He makes a compelling argument in his epilogue.“There wasn’t any assassin’s bullet, nor was there any need for one,” Schou writes. “It was Gary Webb’s controversial, career-ending story—and the combined resources and dedication of America’s three largest and most powerful newspapers—that killed his career as a reporter and set the stage for his personal self-destruction. Without exception, those who knew Webb well believe he killed himself.”The introduction to Schou’s book was written by Charles Bowden, an author and acclaimed journalist based in New Mexico whose “most notable work,” The New York Times said in his obituary last month when he died at the age of 69, “cut through debates about drug wars and immigration” on the Rio Grande border. Bowden met Webb when he was deep into his book about the drug trade. “He was the best investigative reporter I’ve ever known. But that hardly matters if you mess with our government’s secret world without its consent,” Bowden wrote.And now when our republic is reeling from fear fanned by the irresponsible for political gain, and from the lingering recession prolonged by those who profit from inequality, our citizens could use a lot more courageous reporters like Gary Webb to cut through the bullshit and shine light on the darkness. And it’s a national tragedy that even our greatest newspapers are a shadow of their former selves as they too struggle against austerity to do the toughest job our democracy demands.last_img read more

Hi-Rez allegedly not paying pro Paladins players

first_imgIn a Reddit post created by professional Paladins player Patrick “sleeppyy” Ratzow, former captain of Mousesports’ Paladins team, the player alleges that Hi-Rez studios, creator of Paladins and popular MOBA Smite, has not been paying its players.Ratzow, who won $400 (£295) at the Masters LAN Gauntlet, a LAN qualifying event in April 2017, claims to have asked repeatedly for his tournament winnings but has been ignored by Hi-Rez throughout the ordeal.In an interview with Twin Galaxies, Ratzow summarised the situation, saying: “I got a Google Forms link emailed to me on April 24, 2017 that I had to fill to get my money, two days later, I got tax papers sent that I had to fill which I did. A couple months passed and I had heard nothing from Hi-Rez, emailing them several times with zero response. I ended up having to message a Hi-Rez employee outside his employment times on Discord to finally get a response. I hadn’t filled one of the tax papers, which was totally my fault, so I accepted it and moved on, waiting for my money. More months passed and emails sent, zero response. I ended up having to post about all of this on Paladins’ Subreddit (a few days ago as of this publication) to get a response from Hi-Rez, which happened within hours of my post as it rose to the top of the Subreddit.”Since the post blew up on the Paladins subreddit, multiple pro Paladins players have come out as saying they are also owed money by Hi-Rez, including Ozon3TV who claims to have gone through a similar ordeal following the PGS Phase 3 event.Following this, Hi-Rez COO Todd Harris took part in a short AMA with Paladins subreddit moderators, claiming that they “prioritise the treatment of [our] players very highly, and it’s unacceptable that people aren’t getting paid”. Harris does, however, state that, despite the rumours, all organisations within the Paladins Premier League will have been wired their money and any issues regarding this will have been a result of something being blocked along the way, such as incorrect paperwork.Esports Insider says: This is concerning news for Hi-Rez studios that does not reflect well on them as a developer nor studio. With the Paladins League being sanctioned by WESA, one would hope this issue will be resolved smoothly in the near future.last_img read more
