HeadlineMothers home is a safe haven. A stepping stone for mothers with dificulties. A chance of respite for their children. And a sense of home for their small fragile families.Architecture follows these statements and is trynig to give form to inteweaving dualities of this social programme.Programme:Mothers home is part of social programme of Ministry of Labour, Family, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities of Slovenia and partially co-founded by Municipality of Ljubljana. Its goal is to lend a helping hand to mothers with young children in social difficulties.Save this picture!© Blaž BudjaThe content is divided between institutional and technical part of the programme on one side and communal and private areas for residents on the other side. Design of the house is based on a co-living concept, where private and social slide closer and thus offer a new learning experience in social skills and personal growth with the emphasis on forming new relations while still maintaining a sense of privacy and shelter.  Save this picture!© Blaž BudjaLocation:The site is situated in suburban area of Ljubljana, caught between Žale, Ljubljana’s central cemetery, Ljubljana bypass and Ljubljana’s biggest commercial area.The spontaneous growth of otherwise planned suburban area, framed by more short-therm commercial development and contrasted by constancy and tranquility of cementery and nearby park acts as a decisive role in design of the building.Save this picture!Courtesy of Jereb in Budja arhitektiMaterials and form follow the directive of clearly stating the uniqueness of the programme while still trying to be incorporated in the suburban tissueSave this picture!© Blaž BudjaConcept – context and strategyContext is formed mainly on the programme and its location. It revolves aroud dualities that present themselves:    •    protecting and connecting,    •    respite and activity,    •    institution and home,    •    society and family    •    communal and private,    •    before and after.Architecture follows these dualities and uses material, form and structure to tell and protect the stories that live inside.Save this picture!Site planFirst set of challenges is in the relation of institutional setup of rules for the programme in contrast to everyday needs of mothers, kids and employees using the building. It is addressed with a co-living concept of the Home. Large communal areas in ground floor offer flexibility and a sense of community. Mote withdrawn areas on the higher floors offer more or complete privacy. The administrative part acts as a protective area between the public courtyard and private garden. Clients usual demands of robust, economical construction were almost in direct contrast to users needs of homely and sustainable feel of spaces.Save this picture!© Blaž BudjaSecond set of challenges was in decomposition of suburban fabric with relations between large scale commercial development and small scale residential short term reality contrasted with strong symbolic statement of eternity in nearby cemetery and commanding views of the Alps.The resulting architecture is defined with delicate interaction of two volumes that differ in materials and with subtle differences generate similar but emotionally quite different ambients.Save this picture!AxonometryConstruction – Materials and StructureThe materials used in construction are  based on the client’s decision on minimal maintenance, relative stability of the program with its specifics and strict fire regulations.But based on specifics of intended use we limited our use on natural materials.Wood is used in most instances (wooden railings, wooden roof construction, flooring, ceiling, doors, windows and most of the furniture). Areas with more frequent use have more robust materials (aluminum roof, teraco flooring, concrete kitchen counters, stainless steel railings, steel clad walls as bulletin boards…).  The construction is mainly in concrete (bearing walls and floors) and partly wooden (roof construction).Save this picture!© Blaž BudjaThe double ventilated facade embraces the house from two sides, with two materials. Strong but delicately formed concrete on the northern and street side and double glass facade on southern and park side.Finishes are based on natural states of materials – wood is oiled, the concrete is sanded or polished.Save this picture!© Blaž BudjaHeating and ventilation are based on energy efficiency. Floor heating and sanitary water is treated with heat pump, supported in colder months with natural gas heater.Ventilation is minimal and treated with recuperation.With use of materials we have achieved a detailed character of architecture but still adapted the design to low cost demands of the client.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse FMB / Fuchs Wacker ArchitektenSelected ProjectsThe Santai / Antony Liu + Architects + Studio TonTonSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Ljubljana, SloveniaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Clear increase in violence against journalists in Germany in 2018

first_img Receive email alerts “Media law and dealing with journalists must be given special emphasis in police training, and it must be ensured that police officers put this into practice, ” Michael Rediske added. This includes the frequently repeated argument that it is illegal to publish images of the faces of individual demonstrators without their consent. Under the German Copyright Act for Works of Art (KUG), images of contemporary events (including images of public demonstrations and their participants) are indeed allowed to be disseminated without the persons who appear in the images having given their consent. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which has been in effect since May 25 has not changed this. In the last few months, right-leaning demonstrators have repeatedly tried to limit media coverage of events, citing the GDPR and arguing that any images of them are personal data and therefore can no longer be used without their consent. In some cases, police officers have supported them when they used this argument. The German Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) also documented 16 cases of acts of violence with a right-wing motivation against journalists in 2016. For 2017 it documented 11 cases and for this year (up to August 17) it has registered 6. May 31, 2021 Find out more March 30, 2021 Find out more GermanyEurope – Central Asia Reports and statisticsProtecting journalists Violence In the following two years, the numbers dropped significantly: in 2016 RSF Germany registered 18 acts of violence against journalists, all except two occuring at demonstrations staged by the Alternative for Germany party or one of the various branches of Pegida or right-wing extremist groups. In 2017 RSF Germany documented a total of 16 attacks against journalists, the  majority of these incidents (11) occurred in connection with the protests before and during the G20 summit in July 2017 in Hamburg, where journalists were either attacked by demonstrators or hit by pepper spray and water cannons used by the police even though they were clearly identifiable as members of the media. RSF Germany will assess all documented reports of attacks at the end of the year, but the high number of eyewitness reports already points to a marked increase in the number of confirmed assaults in 2018. June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further After reaching a peak of 39 cases of attacks against journalists in 2015, this figure dropped to below 20 in 2016 and 2017. RSF Germany is concerned by a new surge and calls on the authorities to guarantee journalists’ safety. News In 2015 RSF Germany registered a surge in violence against journalists for the first time in Germany. In that year, RSF Germany documented at least 39 violent assaults, most of which took place at the demonstrations of the Pegida movement and its regional branches or at far-right rallies or counter-demonstrations. Roughly two-thirds of the incidents documented by RSF Germany occurred in Saxony, with others registered in Berlin, Munich and other cities. The victims of these attacks were for the most part photographers, camera teams or reporters who had been standing outside the mobile units of radio and television broadcasters – in other words journalists who could easily be identified as such and who in the eyes of demonstrators symbolise the collectively denigrated “lying press”. Organisation REPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERS DOCUMENTS VIOLENCE AGAINST JOURNALISTS Several journalists have told RSF Germany in the last two weeks that they had never before been exposed to as much hate and aggressiveness as during the protests in Chemnitz and a dozen of them were physically attacked while covering the events ( MDR, Der Spiegel, Watson online, Buzzfeed Germany, ARD and Funke media have reported attacks against their journalists)  . The German city of Chemnitz has been the epicentre of fierce clashes at the beginning of the month where anti-migrant protests and counter-protests have escalated following the fatal stabbing of Daniel Hillig, a 35-year-old German-Cuban. RSF Germany does not yet have conclusively verified figures for the current year, but the already numerous reports from journalists indicate that the number of attacks against journalists for 2018 will be higher than for the two preceding years. The incidents occurred in several regions of Germany, not just in Saxony. Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU A code of conduct for cooperation between police and media has existed for 25 years in Germany. For this code to be adhered to in practice, in addition to placing special emphasis on media law in police training, it is vital that politicians and authorities show the will to support police officers in putting this knowledge into practice. GermanyEurope – Central Asia Reports and statisticsProtecting journalists Violence Germany ranks 15th out of 180 states on the World Press Freedom Index. “The atmosphere at the protests in Chemnitz was more hostile to the media than we have experienced since the anti-Islam Pegida movement began in 2015. It is unacceptable that journalists in Germany have to fear for their own safety simply because they cover major public events,” said Michael Rediske, executive member of RSF Germany’s board of directors. It’s particularly alarming that in recent times large groups of people are increasingly targeting journalists at right-wing demonstrations, collectively insulting and harassing them. It is therefore all the more vital that police protect journalists and make it possible for them to do their work unimpeded,” Rediske added. Help by sharing this information News News After the riots in Chemnitz, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Germany notes that the number of violent attacks against journalists in Germany will be higher this year than it was in the last two years. RSF Germany is concerned by this new surge and calls on the authorities to guarantee journalists’ safety and encourage police officers to support media representatives in their journalistic activities. POLICE MUST KNOW THE RIGHTS OF JOURNALISTS AND ENFORCE THEM One improvement since 2015 is that there is now a greater awareness in politics of the fact that police officers should support media representatives in their journalistic activities. In its “Nahaufnahme” report on Germany in 2016, RSF Germany criticised that police officers often looked away or failed to intervene when journalists were prevented from doing their work. In some cases, however, the conduct of the police continues to be objectionable, as was the case recently when a team working for German public broadcaster ZDF in Dresden was prevented from doing its work.

Search for New York Fed Replacement Intensifies

first_imgSubscribe Tagged with: background CNBC Diversity Federal Reserve New York Fed president replacement As the announcement of William Dudley, the current New York Fed president’s retirement in 2018 circulates the industry, determining his successor brings to light the necessary characteristics the next president should have—and who might already possess them. The announcement made last week comes considerably before the end of his 10-year term, which is January 2019. The sudden and imminent departure of what some consider the second-most important job in the Federal Reserve system will bring with it a search that experts estimate will take six to nine months, according to a recent report published Monday by CNBC.There are some names being discussed throughout the industry by Fed observers and financial market experts. Some of these names include, Peter Blair Henry, the youngest dean appointed to the New York University’s (NYU) Stern School of Business, Peter Fisher, former Treasury Undersecretary for Domestic Finance during the Bush administration, Sandie O’Connor, JPMorgan Chief of Regulatory Affairs, and Seth Carpenter, Chief Economist for UBS. The President of the New York Fed is first among the 12 regional bank presidents. While he was New York Fed president, Dudley formed a triumvirate with Fed Chair Janet Yellen and former Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer. These three were in charge of Fed policymaking. The NY Fed president also serves as the vice chairman of the Federal Open Market Committee.These duties make prior experience a key factor in the search for Dudley’s replacement. One of the biggest ongoing debates is whether or not the NY Fed president should be an economist. CNBC also said that the NY Fed is a job that requires a Ph.D. in economics. Dudley held the latter and was the former. Finally, many are wary of a candidate with a background in banking due to the fact that Dudley’s retirement comes at a time when the Trump administration is likely to ease up on the Dodd-Frank Act. A candidate with a banking background also has the potential to be seen as beholden to financial institutions.The soon-to-be vacant NY Fed president position also comes at a time when the Fed is under pressure to appoint more diverse presidents. According to a Brookings Institution statistic cited by CNBC, six out of 135 regional bank presidents have been women, and three have been nonwhites. Additionally, 11 of the regional banks have always had white presidents, and eight of those have never been led by a woman.Additional names being mentioned include, Brian Sack, Chief Economist of Shaw, Robert Kaplan, Dallas Fed President, Lael Brainard, current Fed Governor, Simon Potter, current Head of Open Market Operations at the New York Fed, and Krishna Guha, Vice Chairman of Evercore ISI, and former EVP of the New York Fed.

World Refugee Day

first_imgTo the Editor:June 20 of every year is world refugee day and while this letter will be sent out after it, it is still a reminder that people around the world need our love and support. The Refugee crisis has occurred for a number of different reasons: war and conflict, economic hardship, lack of employment opportunities, and abject poverty. The United States has always been one of the leading countries for funding foreign aid. However, many Americans think that twenty percent of the annual federal budget goes to foreign aid when in reality it is, at most, around one percent. The US has the capabilities to help those in need, especially refugees; therefore we, as a country and individually, should help contribute more to those less fortunate than us. Besides just common decency the US has an urgent strategic interest in improving the quality of life for the world’s poor and for refugees. The reduction in global poverty will lead to less global instability, less terrorism, and less of us turning on the news and seeing that an attack has occurred and only saying “again?!” If we as the people of the United States become active participants in our government we can create a huge change around the world. By calling our representatives and asking for their support in protecting the world’s poor and supporting US foreign aid we can create a safer, healthier, more beautifully connected world.EMMA PIZZUTIlast_img read more
