He was elected by the provincial synod in April. Hundreds of people included guests from around the world packed into St. Luke’s Cathedral in Panama City for a vibrant, colourful service which reflected elements from the five nations which make up the province – Panama, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua. One moment which drew gasps from the congregation was the gospel reading: it was preceded by the appearance of a group of dancers each wearing a hat topped with a flaming candle.Read the entire article here.A photo gallery is here.

This quiet low-rise cul-de-sac of semi detached houses at Jalan Binchang is similar to many in Singapore. Constructed mostly in the 1970’s, the pairs of two storey brick houses are now at the stage in their building lifespan where renovation is eminent. The designers saw the development of the quaint neighborhood and its natural evolution as a main source of inspiration in the design of no. 67 Jalan Binchang. They brainstormed on how to enlarge and rejuvenate the existing semi detached house while maintaining a harmony with the existing built environment, the history of tropical residential buildings and with the natural environment. The designers looked at the existing building as one would study a living organism that needed to adapt to a new environment. Instead of demolishing its embedded history and reinventing it as something completely new, they decided to use its structure, its internal logic of organization and meaning as a starting point to the design, and to build upon this pre-existing pattern and structure to evolve it into a new form and space. Save this picture!© Edward HendricksThe architects find it important to study how space can evolve with time and with the changing conditions of the inhabitants so that the lifespan of construction can be increased. Also as a way of reducing waste, savings cost on the project, and minimizing disruption to the neighbor’s house, the designers decided to retain the entire 2-storey semi detached house on the site. Between this structure and a newly added 2 storey plus attic extension, a gap between the old and new structures was kept to bring light and wind through the house as well as to allow for the settlement of the new structure independently from the old. The internal building’s logic of the front facing public room, rear facing services and private second storey of the existing house was maintained and carried over to the side extension. Save this picture!First Floor PlanIn another effort to minimize material, as well as to link the two structures together, the designers used the 5th elevation of the house, the roof form, as the main façade of the old and new parts of the building. They bent and folded this form around the top and sides of the house. This roof was conceived as an evolution of the traditional sloping gable tropical roof and retains the history of the visual and function importance of the roof in the tropics. The organically wrapping independent roof creates an insulating buffer between the harsh tropical sun and the internal and external living spaces below. An example of resource efficacy in the design is the use of simple, locally available materials to construct a “breathing” wall out of organically organized painted brick on the North-East face of the building. This multi-functional permeable wall helps to cut down noise from the nearby Category 3 road of Bishan Street 22 as well as allows the prevailing winds to flow through the building and to reduce heat in the house so as to lower the building’s dependency on air conditioning. Aesthetically, this breathing wall creates beautiful patterns of light across the inner surfaces of the house, creating a calm and peaceful atmosphere where space is in harmony with its history, its climate and with the natural elements.Save this picture!© Edward HendricksProject gallerySee allShow lessBerlin Wall Memorials Prove Controversial, Fall Behind ScheduleArchitecture NewsHASSELL Wins Competition to Construct Landmark Tower in SydneyArchitecture News Share “COPY” Year: The Re-wrapped House / A D LAB Area: 496 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2013 ArchDaily Photographs Singapore CopyAbout this officeA D LABOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on March 14, 2014Cite: “The Re-wrapped House / A D LAB ” 14 Mar 2014.

DSDHA has completed a family home, known as the Covert House, which lies hidden from view in the heart of a conservation area in Clapham Old Town, London. Set in a pastoral landscape of mature trees and gardens, the house acts a case study for testing several hypotheses. These span from interrogating the idea of the ‘domestic’ at the beginning of the twenty-first century, through to how sustainability might be integrated into high quality design without compromise. In addition, at a strategic urban scale it asks how a global city like London might provide new housing within its fiercely defended low-density backlands, close to the historic centre.Save this picture!© Helene BinetAs a modest family home, the house is designed with a few simple rules; to use the most sustainable design principles possible whilst deploying a limited material palette, yet creating a sense of domesticity within a concrete armature, that does not disturb its sensitive setting and the 23 neighbouring properties adjoining the site. Materials are either concrete – cast on site, left raw and unfinished, or precise and highly articulated – read against ‘whiteness’, be it in the form of natural light, controlled and carefully calibrated to bring animation and delight deep into the plan, or represented though the use of white as a finish for all the remaining surfaces beyond the concrete. The resultant design is precise and sculpted; materially rich yet calm as a place in which to live.Save this picture!© Christoffer RudquistSet partially into the ground to limit its height and provide thermal mass, the house has lower floor lightwells and an elegant white concrete stair that effortlessly mediates the spatial experience between levels within a double height space. The clarity of the architecture echoes the carved forms of the artist Chillida, and is predicated on an engagement with craft and specificity, at a time when standardisation and off-site construction are widely promoted. The project represents an insistence on combining everyday needs with a search for new forms of beauty. The house has been shortlisted for an RIBA London Award 2015.Save this picture!© Helene BinetSave this picture!Sectioned AxonSave this picture!© Christoffer RudquistProject gallerySee allShow lessEstudio Barozzi Veiga’s Philharmonic Hall Szczecin Photographed by Laurian GhinitoiuArchitecture NewsA Guided Tour Of The 2015 Milan ExpoArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/627429/the-covert-house-dsdha Clipboard The Covert House / DSDHASave this projectSaveThe Covert House / DSDHA United Kingdom Projects CopyAbout this officeDSDHAOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLondonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on May 08, 2015Cite: “The Covert House / DSDHA” 08 May 2015.

RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story News News to go further News Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) protested today against the failure by French riot police to protect a photographer working for the daily newspaper Libération from an attack by a Jewish extremist during a demonstration in Paris.RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard called on French interior minister Daniel Vaillant to investigate and find those responsible. He expressed surprise that the police, who were physically holding the photographer when he was attacked, had not defended him and said it was “not right” that extremist groups could attack journalists without any reaction by the police. He noted that RSF had denounced such behaviour in the past and cited its protest in 1999 when journalists of the TV station Télé Bocal were attacked by security guards of the far-right group Action Française and also its protests against some 20 attacks on journalists over the years by security guards of the far-right Front National party.The attack on the photographer took place on 18 March at the Palais des Sports stadium in Paris at the annual gathering of the Association for the Welfare of the Israeli Soldier and held “in honour of the Israeli army.” The press, who were not invited to the event, assembled outside the stadium. The photographer, whose professional name is simply “Meyer”, was standing near a group protesting against the occasion, and was grabbed by CRS riot police when an argument broke out between the protesters and members of the extremist Jewish youth group Betar.Although he said he was a Libération photographer, police took him towards the extremists. When he protested, the police lifted him away, but not before a member of Betar punched him in the face and fled without being pursued by the CRS. Meyer needed three stitches for his wound.

Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says Organisation News March 11, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist under sentence of death in Mazar-i-Sharif is “in constant danger,” says brother at Paris news conference to go further Receive email alerts News March 11, 2021 Find out more News AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Afghan journalist Sayed Yaqub Ibrahimi gave a news conference today at Reporters Without Borders headquarters in Paris about the plight of his brother, Sayed Perwiz Kambakhsh, a fellow journalist who is under sentence of death in Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan. AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Afghanistan RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Afghan journalist Sayed Yaqub Ibrahimi gave a news conference today at Reporters Without Borders headquarters in Paris about the plight of his brother, Sayed Perwiz Kambakhsh, a fellow journalist who is under sentence of death in Mazar-i-Sharif in northern Afghanistan.”I last saw my brother on 7 March in prison,” Ibrahimi said. “Like any prisoner sentenced to death, he was very anxious. And he is in danger all the time because there are around 30 criminals with him in his cell. He should be transferred to a prison where he would be safe. That is why we have asked the government not to put him in a prison with terrorists in Kabul.”Contradicting what has been said in many reports, Ibrahimi insisted that his brother never downloaded, printed or distributed a controversial report about what the Koran has to say about women’s rights.”This was a plot by students close to the fundamentalists who added his name to this report,” Ibrahimi said. “They then alerted the secret services and the clerics. It was all trumped up. Perwiz never distributed this document. This should be clear. I am the target behind all this because of my articles criticising the crimes of the warlord and their allies, the religious fundamentalists.”Ibrahimi added: “After 20 days, the letter requesting the transfer of my brother’s case finally arrived in Mazar-i-Sharif. This allows us to hope that the appeal will be conducted in better circumstances, especially as we have found a lawyer who is ready to defend him.”Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard also spoke at the news conference, urging the Afghan authorities to do everything possible to ensure that Perwiz is freed as soon as possible.”For the moment, the case must be transferred to Kabul, the charges must be reformulated, and both he and his family must be given protection,” Ménard said. “In the long run, the legislation on blasphemy must be amended in order to avoid similar cases in the future.”Ménard added: “We have obtained assurances from the Afghan ambassadors to France and Spain that President Hamid Karzai would never sign a decree authorising Perwiz’s execution. This is an important point.”A young student and journalist who writes for the newspaper Jahan-e-Naw (“New World”), Perwiz was sentenced to death for blasphemy by a Mazar-i-Sharif court on 22 January, at the end of a summary trial held behind closed doors at which he was not represented by a lawyer. He has been detained since 27 October.

Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Farragut forced into maintenance in Norway View post tag: US Navy Authorities US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class USS Farragut (DDG 99) was underway as part of the Harry S. Truman carrier strike group when a cooling fan failure forced the US Navy to carry out underway repairs on the destroyer in Norway.USS Farragut was scheduled to take part in an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) exercise in the Norwegian Sea but it is not clear whether the engineering casualty occurred before or after drill.According to the US Naval Sea Systems Command, a gas turbine generator cooling fan failure required rigging services and a temporary access cut to the generator intake trunk with subsequent re-welding and inspections to replace the broken cooling fan.With the ship docked at Naval Base Haakonsvern in Bergen, Forward Deployed Regional Maintenance Center (FDRMC) Naples, Italy carried out an initial market research on the capabilities of the ship repair contractors in Bergen and determined the region held several companies capable of performing the work. On closer review, however, none of the companies were able to demonstrate they were technically qualified to meet the Navy’s repair standards.“Since the initial plan proved to be unfeasible, FDRMC’s voyage repair team worked to develop an alternate plan,” said FDRMC commanding officer, Capt. Gustavo Vergara, on the command’s first remote voyage repair tasking. “When they reached out to Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC) for assistance, six days before the period of performance was to begin, MARMC responded with feedback and a commitment to begin planning immediately.”The joint FDRMC-MARMC team put together a detailed travel and repair plan, which ensured the ship was able to meet its operational commitments, in spite of the setback from lack of qualified local contractors. Navy personnel met the ship in Norway and executed the repair plan according to schedule.“Through coordination and cooperation on extremely short notice, a critical repair was executed on time, enabling the ship to continue execution of tasking in support of Operation Titanium Citadel,” said Vergara. “Since 6th Fleet is increasingly using Bergen as a convenient port of opportunity, a FDRMC quality assurance specialist was able to visit with potential ship repair companies while on site to educate them on standards to lay the groundwork for better support in the case of future repair requirements in the area.”Farragut departed Haakonsvern Naval Base to return to regular operations on June 9.
