Following the earthquakes of September 2017, different architectural offices, designers and collaborators, both national and international, joined ReConstruir México, a project supported by PienZa Sostenible, which emerged with the aim to join forces to achieve conscious and sustainable reconstruction projects. Seventeen months after the tragedy, PienZa Sostenible has achieved to manage more than 150 reconstruction projects in six states thanks to the support of different donors, agencies and volunteers, with the aim to improve the quality of life of people in the communities that not only suffered serious effects on their heritage, but also faced serious degrees of vulnerability and social deprivation.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoFrom August 2017 to today, a total of 16 homes have been delivered in Ocuilan, State of Mexico. The project promoted by #LoveArmyMéxico, and that has the support of foundations and trusts such as Fundación Origen, ¡Échale! a tu Casa, Fideicomisio Fuerza México and PienZa Sostenible, consists of 50 single-family homes designed by more than 40 architecture offices, as well as a Community Center, by T_O Arquitectura. The house was handed over to Mrs. González on the 11th of July of this year. It was built with Ecoblock, produced by Échale, and it has wooden finishes.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Rafael GamoThe project is set on a space open to the natural landscape. The original idea was to allow a lineal communication with the outside view to the hill and the cliff, creating a backyard that works as the communicator between the outside views and the house. Furthermore, the project was designed to create an interaction among the two main stories of the residence, separating private and communal areas. The first story has two rooms and a full bathroom; the second one has a smoke kitchen, a living room, and an indoor pool.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoEl 11 de julio de este años le entregamos su casa a la señora Martina Gonzáles.

La idea inicial fue permitir una comunicación lineal con la vista exterior hacia el cerro y el acantilado, creando un patio que sirve de comunicación con las vistas exteriores y la casa. De la misma manera, el proyecto se diseñó para crear una relación entre los dos volúmenes principales de la residencia, separando las áreas privadas y comunes. El primer volumen cuenta con dos habitaciones y un baño completo; el segundo alberga la cocina de humo, sala de estar y una pileta techada.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoProject gallerySee allShow lessMichigan Loft / Vladimir Radutny ArchitectsSelected ProjectsHello Wood Team on How to Create a Strong Community in a WeekArticles Share Area: 46 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Martina House / PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos AsociadosSave this projectSaveMartina House / PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados Photographs ArchDaily Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924098/martina-house-ppaa Clipboard Architects: PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos AsociadosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOcuilan de ArteagaMexicoPublished on September 03, 2019Cite: “Martina House / PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados” [Casa Martina / PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados] 03 Sep 2019.

Nobakht was one of many Internet activists arrested by the Revolutionary Guards in 2013. They included Amir Gholestani, Masoud Ghasemkhani, Fariborz Kardarfar, Seyyed Masoud Seyyed Talebi, Amin (Faride) Akramipour, Mehdi Reyshahri and Naghmeh Shahi Savandi Shirazi. After being placed in solitary confinement in Section 2A of Evin prison and subjected to a great deal of pressure, they were given sentences ranging from one to eight years in prison.Damning accountOne of them, Shirazi, managed to flee the country after being released provisionally and has described the terrifying experience of being held in Section 2A and pressured by interrogators. Her account constitutes yet further hard evidence of the systematic mistreatment of detainees in Iran by security and judicial officials.Aged 31, Shahi Savandi Shirazi, was transferred to Evin prison’s Section 2A after her arrest by Revolutionary Guards in January 2013 in the southeastern city of Kerman.“The nightmare began as soon as I arrived,” she told Reporters Without Borders. “Locked up in a very small cell, I could hear the cries of a prisoner being interrogated. I trembled all the time during the first few weeks and couldn’t even hold a pen in my hand (…)“They knew everything about my online chats and my emails. All my online correspondence had been intercepted. Several of my friends had been arrested a few months before me and I now realized I’d been under close surveillance since then. The interrogators asked us to write about each other. They didn’t just want us to confess to the crimes of which were accused. They also wanted to know all about our personal relations and whether we’d had immoral relations. During interrogation, they made sexist jokes to intimidate us. Once they even threatened me with rape and simulated doing it (…)“All these confessions were used to incriminate us when our trial finally got under way before Mohammad Moghiseh, the president of the 28th chamber of the Tehran revolutionary court (…) After my provisional release pending the appeal court’s ruling, my husband, with whom relations were not simple, questioned what had happened in prison and didn’t want us to continue living together.“So I returned to my family’s home in Kerman. But the insulting and contemptuous phone calls continued. The interrogators kept calling me in order to threaten me or to summon me to Tehran for further interrogation (…) Under pressure, I finally decided to leave my country.” Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 IranMiddle East – North Africa Iran is stepping up pressure on journalists, including foreign journalists, in run-up to election June 9, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders reiterates its condemnation of the Iranian regime’s persecution of journalists and bloggers after a wave of arrests of Internet users in recent days as a result of Revolutionary Guard monitoring of online social networks. News On 8 June, judicial system spokesman Golamhossien Mohsseni Ejehi announced the arrests of “several individuals” for social network activity regarded as “actions against national security.”The victims of the latest Revolutionary Guard-orchestrated round-up include Mahmud Moussavifar and Shayan AkbarPour, two Internet activists who ran the Rahian Facebook page and a blog called Rahi, which cannot currently be accessedAfter plainclothes men arrested them at their Tehran home on 31 May, their families reported them missing because they still do not know why they were arrested or where they were taken.Two years of President Hassan RouhaniIn the two years since the moderate conservative Hassan Rouhani was installed as president in June 2013, around 100 Internet activists have been arrested and given long jail terms, in most cases on information provided by the Revolutionary Guards.This persecution of news and information providers is just the continuation of the unprecedented crackdown that began immediately after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection in June 2009, when at least 300 journalists and Internet activists were arrested arbitrarily, tortured and sentenced to long terms of imprisonment.But this persecution is also a weapon in the power struggle being waged among the various government factions, a weapon used to keep constant pressure on President Rouhani, who was elected thanks to the support of progressives and who, during his campaign, promised the “release of all political prisoners” and more “free speech and media freedom.”Several journalists and Internet activists who were convicted in 2009 and 2010 by rigged revolutionary courts have since been released on completing their sentences but many others are still in prison, where they are often subjected to appalling conditions.They include Said Razavi Faghih, Saraj Mirdamadi, Masoud Bastani, Reza Entesari, Said Madani, Said Matinpour and Alireza Rajai. Unfortunately there has been no improvement in the inhuman treatment reserved for prisoners of conscience in Iran, especially in Tehran’s Evin prison and in Raja’i Shahr prison.Furthermore, journalists are no longer able to work after completing their jail terms, regardless of whether their sentences included a post-release “ban on practicing the profession of journalist.” Many newspaper executives and editors are given clear instructions not to hire them. One way or another, the regime prevents most independent journalists from working. Two journalists were recently fired from a media outlet by one of President Rouhani’s associates solely because they had been imprisoned. Iran is ranked 173rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. News IranMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en June 22, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Revolutionary Guards target Internet activists Receive email alerts June 11, 2021 Find out more News May 10, 2021 Find out more Proposed Iranian law would ban US, British journalists and media News Internet activists – easy targetsWith more than 40 million Internet users, according to official figures, Iran is one of the region’s most connected countries. The level of government control of the Internet has been the subject of intense debate at the highest levels since Rouhani took over as president.Compared with the Ahmadinejad era, Internet surveillance and control seem to have eased somewhat. This has not pleased the Revolutionary Guards despite benefitting their business interests as managers of Iran’s leading Internet Service Provider, the Telecommunication Company of Iran (TCI), and the three leading mobile phone operators that are government offshoots. And this displeasure accounts for their current offensive against Internet activists.The staff of the website Narenji (Orange in Persian) were among the first victims of the Revolutionary Guard offensive. After being arrested on 3 December 2013, Ali Asghar Honarmand, Abass Vahedi, Ehsan Paknejad and Hossien Nozari were given sentences ranging from two to eleven years in prison for “collaborating with enemy media.” Six other Narenji activists have been released conditionally. All were subjected to months of solitary confinement to extract confessions, called “acts of self-accusation,” that were used as evidence against them.Several people with dual citizenship have been given long jail terms because of what they were posting on Facebook and other social networks. They include Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, who has dual Iranian and British citizenship. A Tehran revolutionary court sentenced her to 20 years in prison on 27 May 2014. This was reduced to five years in April of this year. Farideh Shahgholi, a woman with dual Iranian and German citizenship, is serving a three-year jail term. to go further Help by sharing this information Organisation Follow the news on Iran

He is now calling on the National Roads Authority (NRA) to provide funding for this work.“I have received numerous calls from local constituents and customers of the Beer Garden public house claiming that gaining access to the N69 from either the City side or from the Foynes direction is lethal and they expect action from the NRA,” Cllr O’Brien told the Limerick Post.“Along with the Kildimo Community Council, I have been working to get funding for a footpath extending from Kildimo to Bolane to allow safe pedestrian access to and from the village,” he said.Cllr O’Brien went on to point out that there has been two recent fatalities near this hazardous bend and he is now fearful that it is only a matter of time before more lives are lost.“While I acknowledge that Limerick City and County Council and the NRA are preparing routes for the N69/Foynes Port Road project, the simple fact remains that people accessing the N69 at Bolane continue to be at risk.“While there are many things councillors can only talk about and highlight, this is one example of where action must be taken. The NRA must provide funding to allow this modest project be completed,” Cllr O’Brien said.

Platforms for MK 59 Decoy Installed aboard USS Ramage Back to overview,Home naval-today Platforms for MK 59 Decoy Installed aboard USS Ramage USS RAMAGEMembers of a fly-away team from Norfolk Naval Shipyard (NNSY) successfully completed a first-time installation of critical decoy system components aboard USS Ramage (DDG 61), in Souda Bay, Greece, Dec. 5.The team installed platforms for the MK 59 decoy system as a part of the chief of naval operations Speed-to-Fleet initiative. The MK 59 decoy is a rapid response system capable of providing highly effective defense for ships against modern anti-ship missiles and other threats.“This was the first time these systems have ever been installed on a ship,” said Project Superintendent Larry Blevins.The Speed-to-Fleet initiative accelerates insertion of maturing technologies to address critical U.S. Navy needs. Meeting this initiative presented a number of challenges including acquiring engineering documents, working in foul weather and an extended logistics train. The NNSY team was able to complete the work in four weeks while moored to a bare pier after initial installation estimates were 8-10 weeks in an industrial activity.Ramage is on a scheduled deployment supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the 6th Fleet area of responsibility.NNSY, a Naval Sea Systems Command field activity, is the oldest industrial facility belonging to the U.S. Navy, and specializes in repairing, overhauling and modernizing ships and submarines.[mappress]Press Release, December 16, 2013; Image: Wikimedia Industry news Share this article December 16, 2013

It has been quite a momentous year. Flour and other commodity prices have seen very steep increases. Big names such as Inter Link have been sold to McCambridge while Lightbodys of Hamilton and Finsbury Foods forged a partnership that took many by surprise.Economy breads and private-label are often hardly worth manufacturing any more but there is a resurgence in demand for good craft breads. The year started with talk of a £1 loaf and now supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s are charging £1.69 for ’crusty artisan breads’ that are flying off the shelves.Everywhere I go, the conversation turns green (at least it’s not blue!) as you all try to pre-empt the coming of the environmental taxman. Joanna Lumley presented our Baking Industry Awards and declared bakers were “so lovely, warm and polite”, while the record audience of over 900 seemed to love her right back.Looking ahead, my fears are for anyone who has not passed on the price rises. Margins are survival, profits make you prosper. They enable you to re-invest in equipment, NPD, shop refits, training and other necessities, and when times are tough, to simply stay afloat.The government set up a committee one year ago to look at how it could reduce red tape for small firms and during 12 months of arduous quango meetings, achieved the grand sum of… er, well, absolutely nothing. I expect the committee is now out to Christmas lunch on your taxes. I am making my own contribution to the baking economy and have already bought and demolished a chocolate log, ordered my Christmas cake and consumed at least one mince pie a day since the start of December. They are simply the best invention known to mankind. I hope all your hard work is resulting in excellent sales and your staff are wearing festive hats and smiles.After Christmas, on 2 January, do watch the BBC’s Hairy Bikers as they descend on The Village Bakery (Melmerby). I followed a few days later and enjoyed a super session of breadmaking with the soon-to-be-famous Anthony Tiffin, its master breadmaker.All that remains is to thank you for reading British Baker for another year and to say, from all of the BB team: Merry Christmas!
The vast majority of shoppers find the abundance of animal welfare logos confusing, according to new research from AB Sustain, a sub-division of Associated British Foods. The research revealed that 83% of consumers found animal welfare labelling confusing, while 93% said they would like to see the labels abolished, with each retailer implementing its own single standard.The research also found that some 65% of consumers are prepared to pay a premium for meat and fish that has been ethically and humanely treated throughout its life-cycle with only 27% saying they would not consider paying extra.Johanna Buitelaar Warden, head of animal welfare at AB Sustain, said: “From RSPCA Freedom Food to Red Tractor, plus the retailers’ own labels, there is a vast array of different logos on the meat and fish on sale in UK supermarkets all of which can be very confusing for shoppers, who by and large just want to do the right thing.”More than 1,000 people were interviewed for the study, with over-55s the most in favour of each retailer implementing their own standard. Some 88% of those polled in that age category found the number of labels confusing, against 81% of 18- to 24-year-olds. Some 98% of over-55s supported the introduction of a single standard per retailer.
