Many thousands more are without home or shelter, with most of those affected in Pakistan. Authorities fear that those figures may increase because many of those affected are in remote difficult-to-reach areas.Tragically, the U.N. reports that among those killed by the quake were 12 school girls who were crushed in a stampede as they fled their collapsing school.“We are extremely concerned for the safety and wellbeing of children, who are already the most at risk in any disaster,” Unicef’s regional director Karin Hulshof said. She warned that children “are now in danger of succumbing to the elements as temperatures plummet.”Geologists say that the epicenter of the magnitude-7.5 earthquake was 51 miles southeast of Feyzabad in Afghanistan’s Hindu Kush mountain range, and 212 miles deep.“It jolted the whole country from one end to other,” a report in a special edition of the Diocese of Peshawar’s Frontier News says. “However, we are thankful to God for His mercy that this earthquake … caused minimum damage compared to the earthquake [in] 2005.”The magnitude-7.6 earthquake of October 2005 resulted in more than 100,000 fatalities.Most of the houses which were destroyed or damaged in last week’s earthquake were mainly mud houses belonging to poor people living in the remote mountainous areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The quake also affected people living in major cities such as Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi , Quetta, Malakand, Kohat and Peshawar, where a number of older buildings were damaged.“It is pertinent to mention that by the Grace of God the Christian community survived through this earthquake unhurt,” the Diocese of Peshawar says, “but there are reports about damaged or partially damaged property and houses, including a few churches, schools and hospitals.”The Diocese of Peshawar has sent teams to assess the damage and to help and rehabilitate those affected by the earthquake and are committed to proving assistance “without discrimination of religion, caste or creed.”They say that “the spadework is in progress and hopefully soon a fully-fledged program to reach the unreached will be materialized by the diocese.”The diocese of Peshawar asks for people to “pray for the Earthquake affectees and the diocesan efforts for their rehabilitation.” Rector Hopkinsville, KY Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Bath, NC Submit an Event Listingcenter_img This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Youth Minister Lorton, VA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Albany, NY Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Anglican Communion, In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Featured Jobs & Calls Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Cathedral Dean Boise, ID The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Smithfield, NC Submit a Press Release Tags Rector Pittsburgh, PA Press Release Service Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Collierville, TN Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY last_img read more

Sky Courts is a 20,000 sqf corporate club house that incorporate short-term housing, office space, and entertainment facilities utilizing the logics of the courtyard and sloped roof. The project packs several courtyards into a defined perimeter and utilizes the sloped roof to accommodate program in the wedge between courtyards, allowing the project to read as 100% courtyard from above. The complex lacks a single center; instead it is a network with multiple centers, and multiple paths, edges and liners. The sequence through these precincts creates a series of layered spaces that line exterior spaces, and views from one courtyard might look through perimeter spaces and into other courtyards.Save this picture!Courtesy of Höweler + Yoon ArchitectureThe layering of interiors and exteriors creates a varied sequence through the complex. The roof geometry consists of a series of inward sloping roofs. The roof profile varies to create the impression of a landscape of peaks and valleys. The alternating inclinations of the major ridge lines produce a varied roofscape and cause the roof planes to twist. By maintaining a constant eave line and varying the perimeter, each plane on the roof is a hyperbolic ruled surface. The use of a ceramic tile uses the gap between units as well as the fine grain of the tile, to absorb the non planar roof condition. The ceramic tile, with a built in capacity to absorb tolerance between units aggregates to produce a twisting roofscape configuration. The project exploits a specific building material to achieve a larger geometrical effect.Save this picture!Courtesy of Höweler + Yoon ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessmodeLab Lattice LabArticles’Made With Bamboo: Architecture, Arts & Crafts’ EventArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/285679/sky-courts-howeler-yoon-architecture Clipboard Projects Sky Courts / Höweler + Yoon Architecturelast_img read more

This collection of 18th Century farm buildings sit central to woodlands outside Ballymahon, Co. Longford. The existing buildings originally formed three sides of a courtyard. An old crumbling stonewall completed this courtyard. A new single storey wing replaces the old wall and provides open plan living kitchen and dining accommodation. To the rear, en-suite master bedroom accommodation has been provided. The existing buildings have been restored to house varying accommodations, notably bedrooms, bathrooms, studio, garage & plantroom.  Save this picture!Courtesy of ODOS architectsThe introduction of this new wing is an attempt to complete the courtyard whilst allowing a visual transparency between the courtyard and the woodlands beyond. This is something, which is lacking in the existing collection of buildings. Large expanses of frameless glazing allow the user to engage with both the courtyard and the surrounding landscape. This is in stark contrast to the experience one feels when in the existing buildings. Their small aperatured interiors provide lowly lit spaces, which suggest secondary accommodation. Externally, the oiled cedar cladding attempts to connect this new wing to its wooded surroundings whilst offering warmth of material to the inner courtyard, something that is lacking in the existing collection of stone, brick and slate buildings. The use of highly aggregated sand blasted concrete tonally links this new wing to the existing collection of buildings.  Save this picture!Courtesy of ODOS architectsThe new wing has been raised off the ground to give it a float-like quality. This contrasts against the routed character of the existing buildings. This wing has been ‘skewered’ through the existing two storey farmhouse allowing the surrounding landscape to flood into the inner courtyard. The protruding section to the rear of the farmhouse, houses the master bedroom accommodation and forms an ‘eye’ to the surrounding woodland. The extended raised terrace off the dining area is an attempt to hold an edge to the courtyard. The mobile quality of this new wing, when viewed from the surrounding woodlands, suggests an ‘inhabited’ sliding door has been opened onto the surround woodlands.

RSF hails Security Council’s historic decision on protecting journalists

first_img “This is an historic day for the protection of journalists and also, we hope, for freedom of information,” Deloire said, addressing the ambassadors of the Security Council’s 15 member states and around 50 other United Nations member states. The UN secretary-general, for his part, paid tribute to RSF’s work.Today’s 2222 (2015) resolution is the first that the Security Council has adopted on this crucial subject since Resolution 1738 in 2006.Deloire was one of three people who were invited by the Security Council’s Lithuanian president to brief the meeting. The others were UN deputy secretary-general Jan Eliasson and Mariane Pearl, the widow of Daniel Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter who was murdered in Pakistan in 2002.For the first time, a Security Council resolution refers to the right to freedom of expression as envisaged in article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.The resolution, for which RSF made recommendations, affirms “that the work of a free, independent and impartial media constitutes one of the essential foundations of a democratic society, and thereby can contribute to the protection of civilians”It calls on states to fulfil their obligations as regards the protection of journalists during armed conflicts and makes it a requirement for UN peacekeeping operations to provide regular reports on the safety of journalists.In his address, Deloire called for the creation of mechanisms for monitoring compliance by member states with their obligations under international law as regards the safety of journalists. “Although the UN Security Council, General Assembly, Human Rights Council and UNESCO are all clearly working on the protection of journalists, more than 700 journalists have been killed in connection with their work in the past ten years,” Deloire told the meeting.“How many more journalists will have to be killed before the UN resolutions are implemented? It is time to take concrete action, in particular, by appointing a special representative of the United Nations secretary-general for the safety of journalists.”On combatting impunity for crimes of violence against journalists, Deloire urged the Security Council to refer the situations in Syria and Iraq, especially crimes against journalists, to the International Criminal Court, as RSF already requested in a letter to the UN secretary-general on 27 April.A total of 45 journalists and around 130 netizens have been killed since the start of the conflict in Syria, while more than 15 journalists have been killed since 2013 in Iraq.Journalists are deliberately targeted by the various parties to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq. They are kidnapped, killed or beheaded. They are the victims of murder, torture or mistreatment. They are taken hostage or detained arbitrarily. All these acts can be regarded as war crimes under the provisions of article 8 of the Rome Statute.“It is vital that the Security Council should continue to treat the protection of journalists as a priority and that it should extend the scope of the protection to non-professional as well as professional journalists and to peacetime as well as wartime,” Deloire said.“Let us not forget that most journalists who are killed in the course of their work or in connection with their work are killed in countries said to be ‘at peace,’ countries where the most appalling abuses are perpetrated by government thugs, men and women in positions of power, mafia godfathers and so on. One day you will have to address this. One day, the Security Council will have to assign obligations to states that are not limited to armed conflict situations.” May 27, 2015 – Updated on January 25, 2016 RSF hails Security Council’s historic decision on protecting journalists Help by sharing this information Organisation Speaking at a meeting of the UN Security Council in New York, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) secretary-general Christophe Deloire hailed the council’s unanimous adoption today of an historic resolution on the protection of journalists in armed conflicts. At the same time, he called for concrete measures to ensure implementation of international law on the safety of journalists.center_img RSF_en You can see the video of the meeting here: http://webtv.un.org/live/ Newslast_img read more
