The site locates on mountainside of Izu-san, where Pacific Ocean can be looked down on the south. The untouched wilderness, covered with deciduous broad-leaved trees such as cherry trees and Japanese oaks, gives little level ground. But we saw faint glimmer of architectural possibility along the ridge. The architecture would be used as villa for weekends.

What sprang to my mind is a blueprint for an architecture which is perfectly autonomous itself, at the same time seems to emerge as an underlying shape that the natural environment has been hiding. It’s abstraction of nature, to say. Save this picture!diagramThe architecture was realized by crossing two rectangular parallelepipeds at very right angles. The lower one contains private rooms and bathroom, and sticks half of the body out to existing narrow level ground. The upper one incorporates salon and kitchen, and lies astride the lower one and the mountain ridge. It almost seems like an off-centered cross pinned carefully on natural terrain. Save this picture!© Ken’ichi SuzukiOne axis of the cross stretches toward the Pacific Ocean on south, and the other, the forest of Japanese oak and some white birch on west. The rooms in the lower structure and terrace on it enjoy broad vista of the sea and blue sky. And gentle shade of natural forest embraces the space in the upper one. Water-polished white marble (cami #120) was chosen as interior finishing material. It glows softly like Greece sculptures to blend blue light from the south and green light from the west gradationally, thus creates delicate continuous landscape of light which suggests the character and usage of the space. Exterior is also finished with white marble. The surface get smoother as it approaches to the southern/western end till it takes mirror gloss (cami #1000) at the ends. The southern end of white cross melts into the blue of sky and sea, and the eastern end to the green of forest. Save this picture!© Ken’ichi SuzukiAbstraction is nothing to conflict with nature here. Carved out of nature, it never stops being a part of nature itself, however highly abstracted. Never relativizes the nature with its foreignness, nor generate contradiction to settle for being “artificial nature” by giving up being abstract and mimicking the nature. Save this picture!first floor planThe abstraction inspired by Mother Nature defines the nature itself, and still, stays natural. That’s what I wanted from this abstraction and architecture.Save this picture!© Ken’ichi SuzukiProject gallerySee allShow lessConcrete Geometries Spatial Form in Social and Aesthetic ProcessesArticlesMuseum of Polish History proposal / kOnykArticles Share Save this picture!© Ken’ichi Suzuki+ 23 Share Plus / Mount Fuji Architects Studio Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/48096/plus-mount-fuji-architects-studio Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/48096/plus-mount-fuji-architects-studio Clipboard CopyAbout this officeMount Fuji Architects StudioOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidentialHousesJapanPublished on January 31, 2010Cite: “Plus / Mount Fuji Architects Studio” 31 Jan 2010.

Portugal general strike rejects austerity

first_imgLisbon, June 27: ‘Enough — no to impoverishment, throw the government out on the street!’ Photo: AvantePortugal is the poorest country in Western Europe. Currently 1.5 million workers are jobless in a population of nearly 11 million. Average wages have sunk about 15 percent in the past year. To satisfy a stringent austerity program, the government has cut social security, health care, education and other benefits, and reduced workers’ job security. The Portuguese working class answered these conditions with a political general strike on June 27 that shut the country down. Below is a statement from the odiario.info site on the strike, translated by WW managing editor John Catalinotto:The magnificent general strike of June 27 stopped the country cold. Called by the General Confederation of Workers of Portugal (CGTP-IN), the general strike mobilized support not only of all the structures claiming to represent the workers but also those of the middle class and other sectors affected by the [center-right] PSD/CDS government’s disastrous policies. The result was a participation and support that expresses the true dimension of the overwhelming popular rejection of this government and its policies, and opened vast space to struggle for another policy.The CGTP-IN focused clearly on the central demand of this strike: the resignation of the government and the reversal of the political direction that it pursues under the orders of the foreign Troika [the European Commission, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank]. The strike raised this demand as an absolute necessity and a national emergency.Workers in industry, fisheries, transport, ports, postal services, the retail trade, the financial sector, national and local public administration, media, performing arts — all areas of activity of both the public and the private sector — joined in this great, massive day of struggle. In many respects, participation in the strike showed aspects that were qualitatively new and more advanced: in sectors and layers of workers who joined; in the combativeness and courage expressed, particularly by workers in insecure jobs; and in adherence to its central objective.In more than 50 demonstrations and assemblies in the entire country, many thousands of workers shared with the population the same unanimous cry: “Throw the government out on the street!”For a long time now the PSD/CDS government has had no political or democratic legitimacy. It is an outlaw government that the entire country condemns and rejects. It is a government under siege, which hates the workers, the people and the country, which hates democratic rights and freedoms and would limit them, if it could, as it has been stating in a more and more open manner.The workers, the people and the country today confirmed that they will not stop their struggle as long as this government is not swept aside. The general strike of June 27 will go down as one of the decisive events marking this battle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Vue de Hargeisa, Credit: Yusuf Dahir The owner of the online newspaper Saylac Today, Dirir was convicted on charges of criminal defamation and publishing false news in connection with an article about harassment of young female students at the Noradin private school in Hargeisa. He has been detained since 16 September. The verdict was handed down very quickly, on the same day as the summing-up for the prosecution, and when Dirir’s lawyer was not in court. Dirir plans to appeal. “We condemn this arbitrary verdict and the way it was issued, which violated the defendant’s right to due process, because his lawyer was not present,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We ask the Hargeisa courts to comply with Somaliland’s constitution, which says press freedom must be respected and we call for this journalist’s immediate release.” February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia Receive email alerts RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region January 8, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF joins global coalition calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to take action on press freedom in Canada

first_img November 19, 2020 Find out more Organisation Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has joined a global coalition of press freedom organizations in a letter to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The letter calls on Trudeau to address the serious press freedom issues faced in the country since its recent four point drop in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. May 10, 2017 RSF joins global coalition calling on Prime Minister Trudeau to take action on press freedom in Canada CanadaAmericas Condemning abusesMedia independenceProtecting sources We, the undersigned, are a coalition of non-governmental organizations that works to promote and protect press freedom and freedom of expression in Canada and around the world.We are grateful for your statement on World Press Freedom Day, May 3, in which you shared strong words of support for freedom of the press and the vital role of journalists in democratic society. You also affirm the importance of taking “a hard look at the current state of press freedom.” This is an essential reminder, especially for strong democracies such as Canada. It can be far too easy to fall victim to misplaced complacency about the state of our own hard-won freedoms and liberties, and to believe that only those outside of our borders face real threats to their rights.As leading defenders of freedom of expression and press freedom, we engage every day with journalists, reporters, and ordinary Canadians trying to exercise their right to press freedom, and who face interference and constraint from agents of their own government. As such we must disagree with your assertion that “journalistic freedom is widely recognized and respected in Canada.”While true in many respects, this assessment ignores the systemic problems facing journalists in Canada, and the many violations of press freedom that have occurred over just the past year and a half. As you know, on April 26 Reporters Without Borders released the 2017 World Press Freedom Index, which ranks 180 countries according to the level of freedom afforded to journalists. This year Canada fell from 18th to 22nd place. Only two years ago, Canada was ranked in the top 10, making it one of the best countries in the world for journalists to operate. A genuine “hard look” at the status quo leads to the conclusion that press freedom in Canada is in serious decline, and that urgent action is required on the part of your government if it is to be restored.Much work needs to be done, by governments, civil society, and individual citizens, to remedy this state of affairs, and to reestablish Canada’s position as a world leader for the protection of press freedom. But one immediate action on the part of your government could swiftly transform the bleak status quo, establish in law concrete improvements for journalists, and set the stage for a broader revitalization of press freedom in Canada.On May 3, 2017, Bill S-231, the Journalistic Sources Protection Act, passed first reading in the House of Commons. Your government must support the passage of this bill. It extends badly needed legal protections to journalists to ensure they are not made criminals for protecting the anonymity of their sources, and makes it harder for police forces to obtain a search warrant, a court order for the collection of information or the authorization to intercept the communications of a journalist, or the collection of documents or information in his or her possession.On May 3, you said in the House of Commons that “of course, journalists should always be able to protect their sources. That is something we believe in strongly as a government, and that is something we will continue to defend and fight for, not just here in Canada but around the world.” Bill S-231 is not a panacea for the problems facing journalists in Canada, but its passage would go some way to bringing Canada into compliance with international standards for the protection of sources, and demonstrate the sincerity of this government’s commitment to press freedom. We urge you to pass it.Yours sincerely,Alice Klein, President, CJFEJohn Hinds, Executive Director, Newsmedia CanadaJohn Fraser, President and CEO, National NewsMedia CouncilHoward Law, Director, Media Sector, UniforTim McSorley, National Coordinator, International Civil Liberties Monitoring GroupBruce D.

HSE seek clarification of creche report following safety breaches

first_imgEmail NewsHSE seek clarification of creche report following safety breachesBy admin – September 25, 2013 798 Advertisement WhatsApp Twitter Linkedincenter_img By Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up CLARIFICATION of a report submitted on behalf of a Limerick creche is being sought by the Health Service Executive (HSE) after the creche owner admitted to breaches of the childcare ‘safe sleep’ regulations earlier this year.Fiona Doheny pleaded guilty last week to four breaches of the regulations when HSE childcare creche inspectors visited her facility last February.Ti na Leanai in Ballysimon is owned and run by Ms Doheny and on the date in question she had three times the allowed quota of children registered at the creche which is in a converted garage at her home.Three children were absent on the date but Ms Doheny had 12 children present in the creche. Ti na Leanai is a registered childcare facility suitable and permitted to care for five children. The inspectors also noted that children were asleep on a bean bag, in a high chair and sleep monitors were not turned on.Prior to sentencing, Judge O’Kelly was given a 30 page report commissioned by Ms Doheny.However when the case was back before the courts this Monday, Muris Gavin, prosecution for the HSE said that there were a number of concerns regarding the contents of the report.Mr Gavin told Judge O’Kelly that he wrote to Ms Doheny’s legal team and asked that they be clarified and addressed at the next sitting.The matter was adjourned until October 7 next for mention and for the defence to indicate whether or not they would be calling into evidence the doctor responsible for carrying out the report.
