This LEED-certified home, located in Long Island, New York, is called Cocoon because its round walls form a Cocoon shape towards the northern and western neighbors. This rounded enclosed half of the house provides shelter and privacy. The other glass side of the house, facing south, takes in ocean breezes and open views. The cedar shingle cladding blends in with the architectural material palette of the historic neighborhood.

Its L-shaped 1730 square foot footprint is shaped by the legal restriction to build at a 150-foot radius from the wetlands and to keep a 35-foot distance from the adjacent properties. Luckily, the view of the greenery towards the ocean faces south and east, so that the southern glass façade provides both views and passive heating gain.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithThe thermal masses of the thick northern/western walls, supported entirely by a timber structure, keep away humidity and retain heat while providing privacy. The large unbroken sliding doors connect inhabitants with the smells, feel and sounds of the garden and ocean in the distance. In a structure that partakes in the natural landscape, a comfortable temperature is primarily achieved through passive strategies. The sliding doors open to catch prevailing southern breezes from the Atlantic Ocean that temper the heat in the warmer months. In the winter the glass facade collects heat from the southern sun, and in the summertime, interior shades cut 50 percent of the solar heat gain.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithThe sensual experience of the sun in a structure that is half opaque and half exposed guides the framework of the design. In the half of the cottage that is crystalline and transparent, sunlight filters through the translucent colored skylights reflect off of the water cistern and enter through the glass facades. The skylights above the hallway of the bedroom wing are based on the color theory of Goethe, used by J.M. William Turner in his 19th c. paintings of sunlight above water. The colors range from vermilion red, which signals sunset and rest, above the master bedroom, to deep yellow, which signals zenith and activity, nearest the living room.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithGeometric patches of colored sunlight from the skylights and glimmering water reflections from the reflecting pool/cistern project onto the interior thick white ovoid back wall, which is punctured by just a few small windows. The changing daylight on the round projection screen connects to solar rhythms throughout the day, directing attention to biorhythms in the passing of seasonal and diurnal cycles, marking hours through slowly moving light patches. It’s meant to serve as a cinematic screen, its round shape abstracting the play of light and shadow, cocooning the interior like an ocean wave with the light hitting its surface.Save this picture!© Caylon HackwithProject gallerySee allShow lessOnline Masterclass: How Online Media can Boost your Company’s Image and Growth?LectureThe Swan Science Museum / Rurban StudioSelected Projects Share “COPY” “COPY” Houses Architects: nea studio Year Completion year of this architecture project Nina Edwards Anker Year:  CopyHouses, Sustainability•New York, United States Structural Engineers: center_img Lead Architect: Save this picture!© Caylon Hackwith+ 39Curated by Paula Pintos Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/926297/cocoon-house-nea-studio Clipboard LaufsED, Will Laufs Manufacturers: Unalam Mechanical Engineers: Electrical Engineers: Avioworks, Michael Edwards United States Cocoon House / nea studioSave this projectSaveCocoon House / nea studio Photographs CopyAbout this officenea studioOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityNew YorkOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on October 11, 2019Cite: “Cocoon House / nea studio” 11 Oct 2019.

Open letter to the European Institutions to end the crackdown on the media in Belarus

first_img News Paris, 9 February 2021 Dear Madam President, Mr. Presidents, We, NGOs defending human rights and the freedom to inform, feel it of vital importance to share with you our deep concern about the unprecedented crackdown on the media in Belarus, which is continuing despite the international community’s condemnations. Since 9 August, we have observed around 400 cases of journalists being arrested just for doing their job covering massive, peaceful protests against President Alexander Lukashenko’s fraudulent reelection. At least 62 cases of physical violence against journalists have been registered since 9 August and 11 journalists are currently jailed. Arrests of journalists are leading to convictions with increasing frequency, the length of provisional detention keeps on growing, and journalists are often mistreated when detained, even if only briefly. The European Union has reacted to the fraudulent nature of this reelection and to the violent crackdown by progressively imposing sanctions on Belarus, in particular, sanctions targeting persons identified as responsible for acts of repression and intimidation against journalists. By adopting these restrictive measures, we believe the European Union has taken a step in the right direction. However, these sanctions will not suffice to end the crackdown. Far from declining, the attempts to silence all critical or objective reporting are continuing in Belarus, and the authorities have now opted to press criminal charges against journalists working for the country’s few remaining independent media outlets. Several of them, including six women, were recently charged with “organizing and preparing events seriously undermining public order” and are facing the possibility of up to seven years in prison. After six months of this unprecedented crackdown, the international community and European Union cannot fail to see that the measures adopted have not prevented the latest disturbing authoritarian escalation by the Belarusian authorities. During an Arria formula meeting of the UN Security Council on 22 January, a score of European Union member states condemned the intensified crackdown on dissent and deplored the lack of cooperation by the Belarusian authorities and their failure to respect their international obligations regarding freedom of expression and opinion, including journalists’ safety. We therefore now urge your European Union institutions and member states to adopt the following recommendations in a spirit similar to those of the October 2020 Benedek report (1) : – Freeze all disbursement of financial assistance to the Government of Belarus under the European Neighbourhood Instrument (2) for as long as the common values and universal fundamental values of the rule of law and human rights are not respected; – Continue imposing economic sanctions and other restrictive measures on individuals and entities implicated in or supporting violations of international electoral norms and international human rights law, especially violations of freedom of expression and freedom of the media; – Suspend all or part of EU funding to the government of Belarus on the grounds of serious or persistent deterioration of democracy, human rights or the rule of law in Belarus. To this end, accelerate European Parliament and Council adoption of the regulation offering the Commission this possibility under its neighbourhood policy; – Offer and increase assistance to threatened journalists and media workers, such as safe passage through their territory, refuge and medical assistance if necessary. – Support independent media outlets working either in or for Belarus, through a dedicated mechanism. On 17 December, the EU said (3) it was “ready to support a peaceful democratic transition with a variety of instruments, including a comprehensive plan of economic support for a democratic Belarus” and to “adopt further sanctions, including on other economic actors, if the situation in Belarus does not improve.” In the manifest absence of improvement in Belarus, we hope that the European Union will keep this promise. We look forward to a clear response from you to these concerns. Sincerely, OSCE Rapporteur’s Report under the Moscow Mechanism on Alleged Human Rights Violations related to the Presidential Elections of 9 August 2020 in Belarus, available here.Except assistance allocated to supporting civil society organizations and non-state actors for actions promoting human rights and fundamental freedoms https://www.consilium.europa.e… of-sanctions-over-ongoing-repression/List of signatories:Christophe Deloire (RSF) Clothilde Redfern (Rory Peck Trust) Jessica Ní Mhainín (Index on Censorship) Laurens Hueting (European Centre for Press and Media Freedom) Leon Willems (Free Press Unlimited) Sarah Clarke (ARTICLE 19) Annie Game (IFEX) Scott Griffen (IPI) Polina Sadovskaya (PEN America) Sara Whyatt (PEN International) Andrew Heslop (WAN-IFRA) BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sourcesInternational bodies Council of EuropeImprisonedImpunityFreedom of expressionExiled mediaJudicial harassmentViolence News RSF_en “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Subject: The European Union response to the unprecedented, six-month-old crackdown on the media in Belarus  News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sourcesInternational bodies Council of EuropeImprisonedImpunityFreedom of expressionExiled mediaJudicial harassmentViolence RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Belarus February 9, 2021 Open letter to the European Institutions to end the crackdown on the media in Belarus to go further News Ursula Von der Leyen, President of the European Commission Charles Michel, President of the European Council David Sassoli, President of the European Parliament Antonio Costa, Portuguese Prime Minister, in charge of the Council of the EU’s rotating presidency  Organisation Receive email alerts Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown May 28, 2021 Find out more June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and other members of a human rights NGO coalition are calling on the European Commission, the European Council, the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament to adopt new sanctions and recommendations for Belarus.

SC Issues Notice On Plea Seeking Absolute Ban On Use Of Sanitization Tunnels

A three-Judges bench comprised of Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice R. Subhash Reddy and Justice MR Shah has issued notice the Union of India on the petition filed and argued by Gursimran Singh Narula, a final year law student. Narula has claimed that the so called disinfectant tunnels are not only “ineffective” in preventing spread of the virus but also have dangerous after effects, as they expose human beings to ultra violet rays, and the same amounts to “non-consensual medical experimentation”. “WHO and other health experts across the world have alarmed that unchecked and mis-informed usage of such disinfection tunnels can have serious physical and psychological consequences on human beings,” the plea states. Apart from WHO, hhe pointed out, even the Directorate General of Health Services (EMR Division), Ministry of Health & Family Welfare issued an advisory in April this year, against spraying of disinfectant on people for COVID-19 management. The advisory stated that spraying of individuals or groups is NOT recommended under any circumstances and it can lead to irritation of eyes, skin and potentially gastrointestinal and psychological problems. It further added that such measures may in fact lead to false sense of disinfection & safety and actually hamper public observance to hand washing and social distancing measures. However, certain Indian medical institutions such as Pune-based Council of Scientific & Industrial Research-National Chemical Laboratory and Mumbai-based Institute of Chemical Technology have casted doubt on scientific value of the Government advisory against spraying of disinfectants on human beings. This, Narula asserts, has resulted in spread of mis-information in public and has promoted unscrupulous use of self-claimed organic disinfectants. Even many IPS officers, he pointed out, have misconstrued the advisory and are promoting the use of disinfectant tunnels in schools and other public places. He has contended that such “faulty notions” that spraying of disinfectants on human beings has no adverse health impact has led to violation of right to healthy life under Article 21 of the Constitution. Accordingly, he has sought forthwith ban on the usage, installation, production, advertisement of disinfection tunnels involving spraying or fumigation of chemical disinfectants for the purposes disinfecting human beings.

Nageswara Rao were presiding over the matter in a Special Bench and, noting that there was a change of situation since April, stated that the High Court’s rules for virtual hearings would extend to trial matters as well as appellate proceedings. Today’s Order, therefore, notes that “there has been a change in situation since April, 2020. In many States, the situation has eased and it has been possible to even commence hearings in congregation. We must say that the system of Video Conferencing has been extremely successful in providing access to justice”. After altering the April 6 order by substituting sub-para (vii) of Paragraph 6, the Apex Court also observed that several High Courts have framed their Rules already and those who have not, “shall do so having regard to the circumstances prevailing in the State. Till such Rules are framed, the High Courts may adopt the model Video Conferencing Rules provided by the E-Committee, Supreme Court of India to all the Chief Justices of the High Court”. In today’s hearing, Attorney-General KK Venugopal apprised the Court of the success of virtual hearings, and also added that there were, however, technical glitches and that Justice Chandrachud could find the best platform for the conduct of video conferencing. Justice Chandrachud, who is also the Chairman of the E-Committee, informed the Counsels present that tenders had been issued for the same. “We have a national tender for High Court and District Court so that we can have a common virtual hearing platform. Now, we either have Zoom, Cisco or Vidyo. A Committee of 4 High Court judges has been appointed and they formulated rules which was circulated to all the High Courts. 11 High Courts have adopted the model rules”, stated Justice Chandrachud. At this juncture, the CJI posited the proposition that High Courts would be allowed to frame the rules for themselves as well as for lower courts as resources and Wi-Fi differed from High Court to High Court. There was further a difference in the degree of e-literacy amongst advocates. A discussion then ensued on the usage of fibre optic networks and satellites. The CJI stated, “Initially we wanted the Centre to give us a satellite, but we were advised that it was not a good idea and that fibre optic network would be better. However, as fibre optic network is not present in North-East, a satellite could be used there. This will help tremendously.” To this, the AG submitted that the National Informatics Centre (NIC) was dealing with the same. The CJI informed the AG that Justice Chandrachud was in touch with the NIC, but the Centre had to make a binding statement before the Court. Justice Chandrachud touched the aspect of how some degree of financial help would be required from the Centre once the project was initiated on a pan-India basis; a Parliamentary Committee had submitted a report on the E-Courts project and the report claimed that the infrastructure of the Courts needed to be upgraded. The AG then informed the Court that smartphones, especially in rural areas, were enough to conduct hearings. He also mentioned that live hearing could be on the Court’s agenda so that hearings could be witnessed across the country. Senior Advocate Harish Salve, appearing on behalf of Reliance Jio, informed the Bench that they had the best optical fibre network and, was accordingly instructed by the Court to get in touch with the e-Committee. Justice Chandrachud then said, “We are also looking to set up an e-Sewa Kendra in High Courts which can help lawyers who don’t have the basic infrastructure for VC hearings. Centre will need to provide financial assistance. 3350 kendras will be needed for 3350 courts”. Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, on the basis of whose letter the Supreme Court had taken suo moto cognizance of the instant matter, then made submissions pertaining to infrastructural changes to the Supreme Court. “There could be a cubicle area in the annexe building where lawyers can attend the virtual hearings. Transfer and bail pleas can only be heard by VC. The Media needs to the given a separate kiosk for covering of proceedings and they will be saved from running around and flood the Court corridors. Another library can also be created where lawyers can wait”, submitted Singh. The Court made a note of this and informed Singh that a Committee would be constituted, comprising of Supreme Court judges, as well as people from NIC and PWD, and Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta, and the suggestions could be given to them. Before concluding, the Court informed the Counsels present that a decision would be taken on the matter soon. The matter will now be listed post the Diwali holidays.

Former White House chief of staff joins unaccompanied migrant children shelter board

first_imgAlex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — Former White House chief of staff John Kelly has joined the board of directors for a company that operates shelters for undocumented migrant children.Kelly was a top aide to President Donald Trump when he enacted his “zero-tolerance” policy at the border which forced the separation of some 2,700 children from their families in a matter of weeks and sent them to privately run shelters across the U.S.The Trump administration has since abandoned forced family separations and reunited many of those families under a court order. But the government says some 12,650 children remain in shelters as of this week – mostly older children and teens who arrived at the border alone and are waiting to be placed with sponsors.Caliburn International, the parent company of Comprehensive Health Services – which oversees one of the largest shelters for migrant children – announced Friday that Kelly would join the board with several other retired military brass. CBS News first reported the appointment.“With four decades of military and humanitarian leadership, in-depth understanding of international affairs and knowledge of current economic drivers around the world, General Kelly is a strong strategic addition to our team,” according to a statement by James Van Duse, CEO of Caliburn International.Comprehensive Health Services operates the Homestead “temporary influx facility” in Florida, which currently cares for 2,200 minors. The company also has three other facilities in Texas.Trump’s critics, including some Democrats in Congress, have called to close down Homestead and other shelters and allow children to be placed with sponsors immediately. The federal government has countered that some time is needed to ensure kids aren’t being placed in dangerous situations.Comprehensive Health Services operates the Homestead “temporary influx facility” in Florida, which currently cares for 2,200 minors.
