This project starts from the center and is one of the most multi-purposed buildings the agency has ever undertaken: 56 apartments, a nursery school, a center for social reintegration and offices. It is in Nantes (western France), right in the middle of the historical old town, not far from the Beaux-Art museum. This very urbanized installation surrounds and highlights a wooded garden that has been preciously preserved.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sergio GraziaThe facilities are on the ground floor, and the entirely windowed outer walls are drawn with great precision along the street. They blend into the landscape in the depth of the inner garden and progressively embed into the slope to lodge their garden-roofs in the shade of the cedar trees. The tiered façades of the apartments stretch along the street. The building is split by two wide breaches along its top to provide neighbors with views of the inner landscape and residents triple exposures, extended by the angled loggias that overlook the street or garden. As well as views of the Saint-Clément church steeple and the nearby Jardin des Plantes. The contemporary architectural language is intentional with all of the outer walls decorated in horizontal metallic cladding and bands, between which are inserted shutters, louvers and stainless-steel panels with curtain-like folds. The garden at the building’s center illustrates another conception of town-center density that is both generous and landscaped. Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!© Sergio GraziaProduct Description. The contemporary architectural language is intentional: buildings are insulated by the exterior, all of the outer walls decorated in horizontal metallic cladding, sometimes in lacquered sheet metal, sometimes pleated in mirror stainless-steel, ensuring the facades durability, between which are inserted shutters, louvers and stainless-steel panels with curtain-like folds. Each element is set on a 1m wide and 2.20m high framework, wedged between the horizontal bands that ensure the C + D regulatory. Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaThese panels are complemented by sliding doors for loggias and accordion shutters, also in mirror stainless steel, in line with the glazed chassis of the rooms, and living rooms not protected by balconies.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaSave this picture!© Michel DenancéThese devices ensure the building thermal performance and allow everyone to control light and views, to preserve comfort and privacy.Save this picture!© Sergio GraziaProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic Stadium Begins ConstructionArchitecture NewsSee the Best Architecture of 2016Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Nantes, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Privately-owned TV station being harassed in run-up to parliamentary elections

first_img March 6, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Privately-owned TV station being harassed in run-up to parliamentary elections Help by sharing this information News Organisation Moldovan reporters harassed by Russian soldiers on border with Transnistria Reporters Without Borders condemns a raid on the privately-owned TV station Albasat on 25 February by three interior ministry agents, who roughed up and arrested two employees, journalist Tatiana Pantilei and accountant Mihail Pantelei.“This raid was unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We deplore the use of such methods, which recall those used in the Soviet era, and we reiterate our request to the interior ministry to guarantee the freedom and safety of independent news media, especially as elections are to take place in April.”Although they had no search warrant, the interior ministry agents tried to seize computers, hard disks and documents. They did not succeed because the two employees resisted. The agents hit them and took them to a police station, where they were subjected to a lengthy interrogation.The interior ministry said it carried out the raid because it had been told by a former Albasat employee that he signed a contract with the TV station that violated Moldova’s labour law. Albasat is also accused of not declaring 400,000 lei (30,000 euros) in profits in 2007, and of using unlicensed computer software.Created in 1995, Albasat belongs to the Euronova Media group, which believes that the station is being harassed because of the parliamentary elections in April.Reporters Without Borders appealed to the Moldovan authorities in May 2008 to guarantee the media’s freedom and safety. Moldova was ranked 98th out of 173 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

‘Quack’ gets away with causing the death of Maryland woman with illegal butt injections

first_imgChristina Carrega/ABC News(SUITLAND, Md.) — A heartbroken Suitland, Maryland, family traveled to a New York City courtroom on Thursday to face the woman, who gave lethal butt injections to their loved one and legally “got away with murder.”Kelly Mayhew made an appointment with Donna Francis for May 30, 2015 to have a discounted buttock augmentation procedure done. The 34-year-old and her mother, Latrice Mayhew-Lane, made the five-hour trip to the basement of a home on Dickens Street in Far Rockaway that Francis, “an incompetent quack,” disguised as a “second-rate medical office,” said Acting Queens District Attorney John Ryan in a press release.Francis, 39 of London, England, had a massage table set up and was armed with dimethicone — a silicone-based gel — purchased from Ebay. Mayhew received the first injection of the clear fluid and as the second dosage was inserted, she “began showing signs of distress,” said Ryan.While holding Mayhew-Lane’s hand, Mayhew pleaded for her life as Francis refused to call for help, said Mayhew-Lane’s son, Richard Lane, as he read from a letter his mother wrote. The frantic mother said she called 911, but didn’t know the cross streets and Francis, again, refused to help. Instead, Francis left the mother and daughter in the house, got into a car and flew back to her home country.“Kelly’s last words to me were ‘Mommy, hold my hand,’” said Lane.Mayhew went into cardiac arrest and died at a nearby hospital.“She was a coward … and she had been a coward for the last three years fighting extradition back to this country,” said Assistant District Attorney George DeLuca-Farrugia in court on Thursday.The city’s medical examiner ruled her death a homicide as a result of systemic silicone embolism.Francis fought extradition to face the consequences of her actions for criminally negligent homicide that carries an upstate prison term of up to four years.“I’m not sure what information was given to the British courts or what they knew regarding the backstory. But one wonders, had this crime occurred in London, if they would have been content with a one year sentence for this action,” said Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder to Francis.Stipulations of Francis’ agreed-upon extradition was a limited sentence of a year in jail and to not serve any of the time on Rikers Island.“I’m sorry, it was not my intention to hurt anyone,” cried Francis, who wore a navy-blue pant suit with yellow stiletto heels. “Sorry for all the years that this has been going on. I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”“I have to say that the phrase getting away with murder certainly applies to you and to say that I’m not happy with this plea and sentence is an understatement,” said Holder to Francis who has been housed in Suffolk County.If the judge rejected the extradition conditions, the family may never see Francis brought to justice. The family — which filled one half of the Kew Gardens courtroom — would have to wait until Francis “makes a mistake” and travels to another country “that does not have same interest England has in dictating the terms of your extradition,” said Holder, adding, “… because what she (Mayhew-Lane) is not getting here, in my opinion, is justice.”“She got away with murder,” said Mayhew-Lane outside of the courthouse as she wiped away tears and was consoled by her son, Richard Lane.In 2016, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released a study that showed that between 2000 and 2015 deaths related to butt augmentations were up 252% — 4,767 in 2015, up from 1,356 in 2000. Prosecutors said it should be noted that when silicone is injected into a human body, it must be encapsulated to prevent free silicone from entering the bloodstream and causing an embolism.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Destroyer Missile Launchers Used in the War against Drug Trafficking

first_img General John Kelly, Commander of the U.S. Southern Command, explained that in 2012, just the naval operations that intercepted 200 tons of cocaine cost the U.S. $600 million, a fraction of the money spent during the fiscal year’s exercises in the regional fight against drug trafficking. At almost 20 knots per hour, the guided-missile frigate USS Thach sails through the equatorial Pacific, a calm sea which is almost a cobalt color at dawn. Eight days ago, the Thach left Balboa, Panama, with a 240-member crew and an AFP journalists’ team on a new mission of Operation Martillo, the counter drug multinational maneuver launched in January 2012 by the United States, European, Caribbean and Central American countries. Time may go by slowly for Sailors at sea; long navigation journeys with nothing to do but patrol. To pass the time the crew performs rescue exercises, tests weapons or follows the old military recipe of painting the boat, which is bashed by saltwater, over and over again. “We board these ships and try to determine if they are carrying smuggled cargo. We search every corner and we try to confirm that there are no secret compartments, since drugs are generally hidden there,” Watkins said. The fight against drug trafficking is considered a “crucial element for the 21st century” by Washington’s Joint Staff, while generals advocate for their budgets in Congress. Men under Eric Watkins’ orders, the Coast Guard chief onboard the warship are tense. From the command position, an officer gives brief orders through loudspeakers. The team reviews their radio equipment and their 9-mm pistols on their waists. Then we feel “less anxious about being away from home, because we know we are doing something positive to protect our families,” James Holm, who has just signed his second four-year contract in the (war) Navy, states. Among other military assistance programs in Central America – where 90% of the cocaine consumed in the United States comes from -, Operation Martillo is one of the most ambitious efforts ever put forward by Washington in the fight against cartels. Suddenly the general alarm goes off: gunners take their positions and a Coast Guard special team prepares a rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) to intercept a boat suspected of carrying cocaine. The suspicious vessel was detected a few hours earlier by patrol aircraft. As the Thach approached, the smugglers threw the drugs overboard and escaped into international waters. The Navy had the consolation of intercepting another 70 kilos of cocaine. center_img “It makes sense to have such a strong presence south [of the Pacific]”, states Commander Hans Lynch, officer in charge aboard the Thach. He explains that the goal is to intercept the drugs from its departure before it is lost in regional routes. By Dialogo April 04, 2013 However, when the “phase 1 alert” signal goes off, the ship goes into war alert in less than half an hour. “They use fishing speedboats or ultra fast vessels with one or two engines, capable of transporting up to a ton of cargo. They come from Ecuador or Colombia and make routine stops on the littoral on their way north,” Coast Guard Officer Watkins said. Only the Coast Guard can search intercepted boats: sometimes freighters, sometimes pleasure cruises, fishing boats, or even home-made submersibles made by cartels. Since 2006, Mexican cartels changed their modus operandi: they are now using Central America as a stopover, where the weather and some corrupt authorities, allow them to keep several safe havens. With the budget cuts, “all those drugs will reach U.S. shores,” said Kelly. The Pacific and the Caribbean are under the surveillance of four U.S. ships and six aircraft, as well as units from other countries, especially from Europe (France, Great Britain, and the Netherlands) in Caribbean waters. Mike Vigil, former chief of international operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), thinks that operations like Martillo are a “good tactic: the closer to the sources the drugs are intercepted, the higher the seized amounts,” he concluded.last_img read more
