The commission begins with the request to build a house that was designed in advance that included a single-family home attached to two apartments for rent. As a young office facing their first project, we decided to propose a new sketch instead of building the proposed generic house that did not seem to be part of the site where it was going to be placed, almost like a shot into the air. This proposal raised the idea of rehabilitating the neighbouring house for rent instead of building apartments, also reflecting the essence of this family of three, where all the daily activities were carried out in an abundant space with divisions that didn’t allow the closure of each area to separate the activities. In addition, it emphasized the recovery of the garden that had been covered with hard soil for the entry of the family car.Save this picture!© JAG studioBy recovering the soft ground, an envelope is generated based on a boundary of plants between the existing house and the new proposal. The house is situated in such a way that it separates an intimate garden from a common one, which gives way to the arrangement of the program classified into private and social areas relating to each garden respectively, without losing the possibility of immediate interaction between users. The social area faces the common green space sharing daily activities, cooking, eating, watching movies or working. The private area is separated by a strip of service spaces and a corridor that connects with the bedrooms that are related to the privacy of the back garden.Save this picture!© JAG studioSave this picture!The volume is developed with the relations between the interior and the exterior as a starting point, the vegetal envelope runs along the brick perimeter and the windows from floor to ceiling seek to provoke the escape of the gaze towards the gardens as if the user were in a permanent exterior space despite being doing their daily activities inside.Save this picture!© JAG studioThe masonry fulfils different functions within the project, the double-wall that encloses the kitchen in the social area fulfils a structural role by receiving the structure of steel porticos and supporting the roof, separated only by a strip of glass that allows the entrance of light at a different height than in the rest of the project, like an inclined glass plane that covers the entrance to the house as a prelude when entering the space.Save this picture!© JAG studioSave this picture!Save this picture!Cortesía de Estudio 2850The masonry along the corridor forms an exhibition gallery that houses a family collection of pieces in the shape of cuscungo-owls of different sizes, colours, ages and origins. This collection was previously contained in furniture that did not allow it to be understood as something precious, the decision was made to make it part of the tour of the house to reflect its importance to all users and visitors.The floor changes according to the area, between the social and private spaces there is a change of level and material, as a transition of uses and temperature, the polished cement floor becomes a eucalyptus wood decking causing the feeling of warmth and intimacy, simple decisions that give the user a pleasant habitat.Save this picture!Cortesía de Estudio 2850Save this picture!Save this picture!© JAG studioProject gallerySee allShow less 2019 Share Photographs: JAG studio Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/935674/cuscungo-house-estudio-2850 Clipboard Photographs Ecuador Cuscungo House / Estudio 2850Save this projectSaveCuscungo House / Estudio 2850 Area: 120 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lead Architect: center_img Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Alel Vidrios, Artesanos de Microcemento, Briggs Veneers, Hove, Maderas Guerrero, Mubel Konzept, Sicoin, Trimble “COPY” “COPY” Roberto Vasco Aguilar, Cristian Fernández Yépez Save this picture!© JAG studio+ 25Curated by Clara Ott Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/935674/cuscungo-house-estudio-2850 Clipboard Year: CopyHouses•Quito, Ecuador Cuscungo House / Estudio 2850 CopyAbout this officeEstudio 2850OfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesQuitoOn FacebookEcuadorPublished on March 17, 2020Cite: “Cuscungo House / Estudio 2850” [Casa Cuscungo / Estudio 2850] 17 Mar 2020.

The Importance of Crop Insurance Touted at International Confrence

first_img Key members from the United States Senate and House this week explained the popularity and importance of crop insurance during a gathering of global insurance leaders from more than 30 countries. “Your work across the globe to help producers manage the ever risky job of feeding the world is vitally important,” Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) told the group.Roberts serves as chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee and he called strengthening the public-private partnership of America’s crop insurance system one of his top priorities. Not surprisingly, steps to improve availability and access to crop insurance were key components of the 2014 Farm Bill.“In the last Farm Bill, crop insurance was reaffirmed as the cornerstone of America’s agricultural safety net,” Roberts explained.His counterpart in the House of Representatives agreed, noting that crop insurance will be essential in feeding a growing world population that is expected to hit 9.6 billion by 2050. “To meet these challenges, producers must be able to remain in business over long periods of time,” said Congressman Mike Conaway (R-Tex.), chairman of the House Agriculture Committee. “When it comes to navigating swings in both the market and the weather – all of which are out of the control of producers – crop insurance steps in to fill the void.”Conaway said that private-sector delivery of crop insurance, with its unique cost-sharing structure to minimize taxpayer risk exposure and its ability to be tailored to individual farmer needs, have helped make it such a success.But that success story will stall unless crop insurers continue to beat back political attacks in the annual budget and appropriations process. Luckily, they won’t be alone in the fight.The chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), told the group, “I will continue to defend farmers and ranchers and to work against those who want to dismantle this very valuable program.”Moran, who called crop insurance a “bright spot in our federal policies,” applauded insurers for supporting agriculture, strengthening the economy and securing the food and fiber supply. “Without farmers and ranchers, rural America just doesn’t exist,” he concluded. “Without a viable crop insurance program, family farmers don’t exist.”The conference is hosted by the International Association of Agricultural Production Insurers (AIAG) and is the first time this biennial meeting has been held in America. Roberts, Conaway, and Moran were unable to attend the event, which is being held in Kansas City, due to congressional votes in Washington, D.C., but sent personalized videos to the AIAG conference.

ESPN’s ‘The Undefeated’ writer visits campus, talks media coverage on Nike, Kaepernick ad

first_imgFacebook Linkedin ReddIt Facebook Linkedin Brandon Kitchin Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ + posts printSenior writer Michael Fletcher at The Undefeated, “ESPN’s platform for exploring the intersections of race, sports, and culture,” shared his perspective on the recent 30th anniversary Nike campaign ad featuring former NFL quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.During his visit as a guest to the John V. Roach Honors College, he spoke in the studio with TCU360 about the role of journalists and how viewers should approach media regarding the Nike advertisement and the nature of the protests that started the controversy.Back in 2016, Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem at NFL games as a way to protest the social injustices and police brutality being experienced by people of color. He has since been ostracized from the league and has been participating in activism.Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything. #JustDoIt pic.twitter.com/SRWkMIDdaO— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) September 3, 2018“Our responsibility in the press is to try to go a layer deeper,” Fletcher said. “Often times we use the term ‘social injustice’ and we don’t go further. We don’t really get to ‘what does that mean to you?’”Injustice, Fletcher said, has lasted in the world and in America as long as time, and a topic like the protest presents an opportunity for the media and journalists to interrogate the issue in an attempt to establish a baseline of facts and reflect different and opposing perspectives accurately.“We need to understand the history of civil rights,” Fletcher said. “When I try to write about these issues, I try to reflect the incredible progress that we’ve seen in this country while at the same time, reflect the long way we still have to go.”This is why he thinks it was such a big deal that President Trump got involved, giving his input at a 2017 rally famously saying “get that SOB off the field right now.”“I think the president has misframed it,” he said. “It’s become kind of the dominant narrative in the country that somehow people kneeling during the national anthem is a disrespectful act when the president has said that and a lot of people now believe that – even though it’s not intended that way.”Fletcher considers this moment to be where a lot of people forgot what the protest was all about, leading many people to take an aggressive stance on both sides without a proper understanding of the issue.“The idea isn’t just to kneel because it makes everyone uncomfortable, the idea is to kneel to bring attention to a problem that you feel is not being addressed urgently enough,” Fletcher said. “But now people forget why this all started.”Fletcher said it is this narrative that gives power to individuals on both sides to go against each other so passionately and aggressively, often using very hateful language toward each other.“You have this heightened moment in America because you have a president who rightfully or wrongly stokes racial passions on both sides and people seem free to express negative views about one another,” Fletcher said.Regarding of how the ad is politically received by viewers, Fletcher believes the campaign itself is just another way Nike sought to capitalize on making more sells.“Nike likes that kind of badge, if you will, with a little bit of edginess in their ad campaigns,” he said. “This is what Nike is in the business of – a ploy to sell sneakers and sporting goods.” Memorial to commemorate MLK Jr. to come to downtown Fort Worth Campus organizations to host ‘Black Panther’ screening, discussioncenter_img Twitter Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ ReddIt Twitter Brandon Kitchinhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brandon-kitchin/ Martin Luther King Jr. visited Fort Worth thanks to first African-American female graduate of Brite Divinity School TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Previous articleOffensive miscues prove costly against No. 4 Ohio StateNext articleSoccer suffers first loss of season Brandon Kitchin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Nelson Mandela’s former prison guard visits campus to reflect on their unlikely friendship World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Brandon Kitchin is a junior Journalism major and TCU 360 line editor from Grand Prairie, Texas.

Safety of journalists at risk as radio reporter narrowly survives a murder attempt

first_img News Reporters Without Borders called for a strong and effective reaction to worsening security for journalists in Guatemala after Winder Jordán Madrid, news editor on local Radio Sultana and correspondent for national daily Nuestro Diario, was shot at in Gualán in the eastern department of Zacapa.Jordán Madrid was fired at by two men on a motorbike as he left his home to get into his car on 2 February. At the moment the shots were fired, the journalist turned back to his home to drop off some items. As he headed back he saw the bike go past a second time and riddle his car with bullets. He immediately hid behind a tree and in the dark was unable to identify the gunmen. “Winder Jordán Madrid had an extraordinary escape from this attack,” said the press freedom organisation, expressing its solidarity with him. “Nevertheless this murder attempt marks a serious deterioration in the safety of journalists in Guatemala.”“One journalist was killed and another badly wounded in a shooting in 2006 and these crimes have so far gone unpunished. The run-up to general elections in September could exacerbate the danger, underlining the need for the active involvement of the political and judicial authorities as well as the profession,” it said.The journalist had written an article a few days before the shooting about a traffic accident in which he reported that the driver responsible had not yet passed his driving test. The man’s two sisters had then turned up at Jordán Madrid’s home and made death threats against him.The Guatemalan press freedom organisation, Cerigua, condemned the attack and called for the journalist and his family to be given protection. The case has been referred to the human rights prosecutor and the prosecutor’s office responsible for offences against journalists and trade unionists.

Large photos of three Iraq hostages unveiled in Paris square, new campaign launched

first_img Follow the news on Iraq February 15, 2021 Find out more IraqMiddle East – North Africa Organisation News Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” RSF_en News On the third anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, Reporters Without Borders today paid tribute to the 86 journalists and media assistants who have lost there lives there in the past three years, and it participated in a ceremony in which large photos of the three journalists currently held hostage in Iraq – Jill Carroll, Reem Zeid and Marwan Khazaal – were displayed in a central Paris square. The three photos were unveiled on Place de la Nation by deputy Paris mayor Pierre Schapira, Peter Ford, the head of the European bureau of the Christian Science Monitor (one of the newspapers that Carroll writes for) and Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.Those who spoke include Christian Aronica, a friend of French cameraman Frédéric Nérac, who went missing in Iraq three years ago. Aronica deplored the lack of progress in the investigation into Nérac’s disappearance and the fact that, because of the uncertainty about his fate, his family is unable to mourn properly. A large photo of Nérac, along with one of Guy-André Kieffer, a journalist who disappeared in Côte d’Ivoire on 16 April 2004, have been on display in the centre of Place de la Nation since March 2005.As Kais Alazawi, the editor of the Iraqi newspaper Al Jareda, looked on, Ménard announced the creation of a support fund for the families of journalists killed in Iraq who worked for newspapers with very limited resources. The fund will be financed by Reporters Without Borders and its beneficiaries will be chosen with the help of the Union of Iraqi Journalists.At the same time, Reporters Without Borders today issued a survey about the 86 journalists killed in Irak since March 2003 – who they were, how they died, and who fired the shots that killed them. Reporters Without Borders also launched an international awareness campaign about the risks run by journalists in Iraq. Developed by Saatchi & Saatchi, the campaign has been produced in five languages: French, English, Spanish, German and Italian. The campaign image shows a street devastated by a blast and the wreck of a car in flames. A newspaper kiosk can be made out through the smoke. And the message says: “At the rate they’re killing journalists in Iraq you’ll soon have to go there and get the news yourself. Since the start of the war three years ago, 86 journalists have been killed in Iraq. Don’t wait to be deprived of news to stand up and fight for it.”This campaign will appear in:- ads placed in daily newspapers and magazines- 1,000 50cm x 70cm posters being sent out to the international press- 60 cm x 80 cm posters that will be put up all over Paris- 10,000 post cards being distributed today in New York and Washington-4 x 3 metre format on two trucks driving around the streets of Paris today.

Missing 16-year-old girl may be with man who checked her out of school 10 times: Police

first_imgAllentown Police Department(ALLENTOWN, Pa.) — Pennsylvania police are searching for a missing teenage girl who may be with a 45-year-old man who has signed her out of school at least 10 times, according to authorities.Amy Yu, 16, and Kevin Esterly have both been reported missing, the Allentown Police Department said Wednesday. Allentown, in eastern Pennsylvania, is located about 60 miles north of Philadelphia.The two were last seen on or about Monday, and authorities believe they are together, said Bill Reinik, assistant chief of police for the Allentown Police Department.Reinik said police believe Yu willingly went with Esterly.The two met at church and Yu appears to have been friends with one of Esterly’s daughters, said Gary Hammer of the Colonial Regional Police, which has jurisdiction over Lu’s school, Lehigh Valley Academy.When Yu was asked by members of the Leigh Country Child Advocacy Center whether she was having a relationship with Esterly, she denied it, Hammer said.However, Yu altered her school records and listed Esterly as her stepfather, Hammer added. And at least 10 times between December and Feb. 9, Esterly signed her out of school early.Feb. 9 was the final day because that’s when Yu’s mother came to the school to pick up her daughter, “and the school said her stepfather already signed her out of school,” Hammer told ABC News.“The mom explained she is a single mother,” Hammer said. “There is no stepfather.”The school called the Colonial Regional Police immediately and it started investigating. The department found video of Esterly signing the teen out and leaving with her, Hammer said.Lehigh Valley Academy confirmed that Esterly has been on school grounds before and was last there on Feb. 9.“After that date, due to circumstances we cannot disclose pursuant to student privacy constraints, he was prohibited from entering school grounds, and the police were to be notified if he returned,” the school said in a statement.The school said in its statement, “Due to federal and state privacy constraints, the school is prohibited from releasing any additional information about the student or the facts and circumstances surrounding the situation unless the parent provides express consent for the school to do so.”“We are, however, working closely with the Colonial Regional Police and the Allentown Police and are providing whatever information and assistance we can to assist them and Amy’s family during this difficult time,” the school added.A warrant was issued for Esterly on Wednesday for interference with the custody of a child.Reinik, the assistant chief of police in Allentown, said authorities believe the pair are likely following media reports of the investigation.“They have the ability to read what’s going on and are interested in reading what’s going on and are interested in reading what’s going on,” he said. “We don’t want Mr. Esterly watching the internet and knowing what our next move is.”Yu stands at 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighs about 90 pounds, police said; Esterly, meanwhile, stands at 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 185 pounds.They may be driving in a 1999 red two-door Honda Accord with Pennsylvania license plate KLT 0529.Reinik said the search for Yu and Esterly consists of local, state and federal authorities, with Allentown leading the investigation.Anyone who sees them is urged to call 911, local police or the Allentown Police at 610-437-7751.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
