Located within one of the best-kept blocks of Guadalajara’s Centro and Americana neighborhoods, CB is a project that merges a heritage building and a new, mixed-use development, promoting the reactivation and densification of the city’s central areas. The heritage house was in a bad state before the intervention, so the project centered its’ aim on saving the original layout and removing the walls and spaces added throughout the years.Save this picture!© José Juan RodríguezSave this picture!FacadeSave this picture!© José Juan RodríguezThe totality of the original home’s configuration was respected in the redesign; the facade’s ornaments were restored, the central patio was rescued, and the main patio-facing hallway was used to add commercial lots to the street level, placed within the heritage building without damaging any preexisting elements. In the back area — which wasn’t part of the original building and had come to be used as storage space — the annex tops off at five stories, imperceptible from street level. The project includes parking space on the ground floor and 10 residential units, eight of which feature two bedrooms, and two which function as open-plan studios.Save this picture!© José Juan RodríguezSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© José Juan RodríguezAmong the intervention’s characteristic elements are its thick walls, which allow for shelving that maximizes the apartments’ storage space and reference the density of the heritage building’s adobe partitions. The rooftop functions as a shared-use space with plants, a grill, tables, and bathrooms. The new building’s facades feature windows and arches that emulate the ones of the heritage building, establishing a respectful and subtle dialogue between the old and the contemporary.Save this picture!© José Juan RodríguezProject gallerySee allShow lessTata Medical Center / CannonDesign + Carambiah & GeorgeSelected ProjectsBamboo House / BL Studio de ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share House Bleu / Diagrama ArquitectosSave this projectSaveHouse Bleu / Diagrama Arquitectos ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957468/house-bleu-diagrama-arquitectos Clipboard Photographs CopyAbout this officeDiagrama ArquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGuadalajaraOn FacebookMexicoPublished on February 26, 2021Cite: “House Bleu / Diagrama Arquitectos” [Casa Bleu / Diagrama Arquitectos] 26 Feb 2021.

Privately-owned radio and TV station shut down

first_img May 27, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Privately-owned radio and TV station shut down Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia News Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders protested today against the shutting down of the privately-owned Somali Broadcasting Corporation (SBC) by the authorities of the Somali region of Puntland and called for the measure to be reversed at once.”This is a serious blow to media diversity in the region and is not the first time press freedom has been threatened in Puntland, where three journalists were arrested last year,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Puntland President Col. Abdullahi Yusuf. He called on him to see that journalists could work freely and safely in the region.SBC chief Ali Abdi Aware announced on 23 May that the station was going off the air, having received word from the authorities cancelling its broadcasting licence and telling him to close the station. An aide of the president said the station had a commercial licence that did not allow it to broadcast political material.Local observers said SBC had been penalised because it had criticised Col. Yusuf and reported regularly on the activities of the party led by Jama Ali Jama, a former president of Puntland and political opponent of Col. Yusuf.Puntland is in northeastern Somalia and has had an autonomous government since 1998.

Europe no longer so exemplary, Russian tragedy deepens

first_img Receive email alerts For the first time since 2002, the press freedom index’s top 20 is not quite so European. Only 15 of the 20 leading countries are from the Old Continent, compared with 18 in 2008. Eleven of these 15 countries are European Union members. They include the top three, Denmark, Finland and Ireland. Another EU member, Bulgaria, has been falling steadily since it joined in 2007 and is now 68th (against 59th in 2008). This is the lowest ranking of any member of the union.The biggest one-year fall of any EU member was Slovakia’s. It sank 37 places to be 44th. This was mainly the result of government meddling in media activities and the adoption in 2008 of a law imposing an automatic right of response in the press. Two candidates for EU membership also experienced suffered dramatic falls. They were Croatia (78th), which fell 33 places, and Turkey (122nd), which fell 20 places.The impact of organised crime and the targeting of journalists account for the falls suffered by both Bulgaria and Italy (49th), which got the worst ranking of the EU’s six original founders. Il Cavaliere’s harassment of the media, increased meddling, mafia violence against journalists who expose its activity and a bill that that would drastically curb the media’s ability to publish official phone tap transcripts explain why Italy fell for the second year running.France (43rd) did not fare much better, falling eight points because of judicial investigations and arrests of journalists and raids on news media, and also because of meddling in the media by politicians, including President Nicolas Sarkozy.The region’s most repressive countries, Uzbekistan (160th) and Turkmenistan (173rd), have not evolved significantly and their journalists are still subject to censorship, arbitrary treatment and violence. The dialogues they have begun with the European Union and other partners do not seem to have borne fruit in terms of human rights and there is every reason to fear that the international community will sacrifice free expression in the race for energy security. Both Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan are rich in natural resources including hydrocarbons.Russia (153rd) tumbled 12 places, below Belarus for the first time. The reasons for this fall, three years after Anna Politkovskaya’s murder, include continuing murders of journalists and human rights activists who help to inform the population, and physical attacks on local media representatives. They also include the return with increasing force of censorship and reporting taboos and the complete failure to punish those responsible for the murders.Indicators point to a deterioration in the press freedom situation in almost all of the former Soviet Republics except Georgia (81st) and, to a lesser extent, Belarus (151st), whose government has initiated a cautious and so far limited improvement in its relations with the press as part of a renewed dialogue with the EU. It is hard at this stage to predict whether this ripple on the surface will swell or fade away.Georgia was able to leap 39 positions because it did not fight a war during the period covered even if political tension continued to have an impact on the news media. Its South Caucasian neighbour, Armenia (111th), fell sharply because of several cases of physical violence against journalists and political tension that continued to affect the media and society.There was no change in neighbouring Azerbaijan, where the situation continued to be really worrying. This was clear from the Reporters Without Borders monitoring of press coverage during the presidential election campaign in November 2008 and from the National Television and Radio Council’s decision to ban foreign radio stations (BBC, Radio Free Europe and Voice of America) from broadcasting on local frequencies.The decline in press freedom continued in Central Asia, especially in Kyrgyzstan (125th) and its enormous, gas-rich neighbour Kazakhstan (142nd), which both fell more than 15 places. Kazakhstan distinguished itself by the number of libel suits brought against independent and opposition newspapers and its recourse to the time-honoured practice of awarding such colossal sums in damages that the publication is forced to close.Kazakhstan’s worst-ever ranking since the index began in 2002 was also due to intimidation and violence against journalists and the prolongation of a law that subjects websites to the same restrictions as the traditional media. In Kyrgyzstan, concerns were fuelled by an increase in physical attacks and intimidation of journalists that led some to flee the country, one-sided coverage of an election campaign, and pressure on foreign radio stations, which need a prior accord with the authorities to be able to broadcast locally.Turkey’s big fall was due to a surge in cases of censorship, especially censorship of media that represent minorities (above all the Kurds), and efforts by members of government bodies, the armed forces and judicial system to maintain their control over coverage of matters of general interest.In Croatia, which hopes to join the EU very soon, certain aspects of Serbo-Croatian relations are a source of tension and are off-limits for the media. Journalists who violate the taboo are often the targets of violence. Organised crime groups have also been responsible for physical attacks on journalists.

Mounting pressure on Georgia’s media in run-up to elections

first_img GeorgiaEurope – Central Asia Media independence Covid19Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment Organisation At least five journalists attacked while covering Georgia’s election campaign RSF_en GeorgiaEurope – Central Asia Media independence Covid19Freedom of expressionJudicial harassment With less than four months to go to high-stakes parliamentary elections, Georgia’s parliament has passed an amendment restricting the freedom of the broadcast media, while the ruling party is declaring a war on “fake news.” These moves jeopardize media independence and pluralism, says Reporters Without Borders (RSF). October 1, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information The climate is becoming oppressive for Georgia’s media as a result of both judicial harassment that directly threatens their editorial freedom and the tightening of legislation.Proposed by the government and passed by parliament on July 17, the latest amendment to the law on electronic communications evinces a clear desire to control radio stations and TV channels, providing for the appointment of a “special manager” at the head of any broadcast media company that is also registered as an operator.The “special manager” is authorized to take control of media companies that fail to comply with decisions taken by the National Communications Commission, and to remain in charge until the decisions have been implemented. He or she is empowered to hire and fire the company’s executives and to break any contract or partnership concluded during the previous year.The National Communications Commission had a strictly operational mandate when created, but its powers have gradually been extended to surveillance and censorship. The creation of an online platform dedicated to examining and guiding Georgian media content in December 2019 was immediately seen as a threat to the freedom of independent media outlets. Dubbed the “Media Critic,” it has of late concentrated on discrediting two independent news websites, Netgazeti and Batumelebi, accusing them of publishing “fake news.”Media opposed to the current government are often the victims of this kind of attack. They include the opposition TV channel Mtavari Arkhi, which is currently being investigated by the intelligence services on suspicion of “sabotage” for allegedly misinforming the population and discrediting the government.Mtavari Arkhi is accused of deliberately mistranslating interviews with Azerbaijani-speaking residents in the southern town of Marneuli who claimed to have been paid by local officials and medical personnel to identify Covid-19 as the reason family members had died. The intelligence services claim that the interviews in the report, of which they have obtained all the original recordings, encouraged feelings of insecurity and mistrust towards the state, an offense punishable by between two and four years in prison under article 318 of Georgia’s criminal code.“The Georgian government should not interfere in the news media’s work, while the provision of original recordings to the intelligence services sets a disturbing precedent,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “With less than four months to go to parliamentary elections, media independence and pluralism are essential for a democratic debate. We urge the authorities to drop the criminal proceedings against Mtavari Arkhi at once and to promote reliable news reporting instead of censoring content.”After the change of ownership of Rustavi 2, a privately-owned TV channel whose editorial line was transformed, the regional public TV channel Adjara TV has been subject to political interference since September 2019.The government is using the election campaign to step up pressure on opposition media, with the mayor of Tbilisi and general secretary of the ruling Georgian Dream party branding Mtavari Arkhi and two other opposition channels,  TV Pirveli and Formula TV, as “fake news” broadcasters. Georgia is ranked 60th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Griffin prepared himself to be successful on the college level and, then, the professional level.From that time forward, Griffin has not compromised his goals. His dedication and hard work are now translating into success in the business world.“Do things the right way but, if you don’t, then do them over until they are done right,” he said. “Don’t leave school the way you came. Get better at something every day. Always give it your all. Pay the price.”Griffin told the students to always go beyond what is expected of them.“Be willing to pay the price for what you want to achieve but you can’t put it on a credit card and pay it later.

He played 10 years in the NFL with the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins and is now a successful Pike County businessman.
