The rising interest in countryside houses is mostly linked to the attempt to balance the rushed city life and also to a desire for something authentic and traditional. But paradoxically this desired character of vernacular architecture is often removed by an overly precise reconstruction and standardized building solutions. Generally it is a challenge how to provide the current level of comfort and at the same time to preserve the original feel of the building. Furthermore, what if the former house must be almost all replaced due to its bad technical condition – does it make sense to repeat it and in what extent? At the end it’s not so relevant to distinguish the old and new, the essential is the resulting mood of the whole…Save this picture!SketchIn this project we were searching answers by means of respect to the original building logic and traditional construction techniques. Our aim was to attain a natural feel instead of a perfect formal imitation. Natural and handcrafted materials like wood, stone and soil bring in an innate imperfection that becomes the main aspect of the project, considered since the beginning of the design process.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe original homestead consisted of two houses, a log cottage and a stone barn, forming an L-shape an set naturally in a remote meadow. To keep this balanced relation we decided to make minimum interventions on the exteriors, the main changes happen inside. Both houses have a living space open up to the roof to emphasize an original specific feature of each of them – the sculptural volume of the traditional black kitchen in the cottage and view through the gates in the barn. There is also a new addition in both houses resembling a black “chimney” that houses sanitary cores, standing as a dominant in the barn while discreet in the cottage.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe duality of the two houses links the whole project – their different character and original function are reflected in the new use and overall approach to the reconstruction. The log cottage is designed for the stay of the owners family and is conceived more traditionally, although most of it was in such a bad technical condition that it had to be replaced. Like the typical vernacular houses it stays rather dark, closed and intimate, its character is mainly brought by rough handcrafted surfaces.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe barn has been a supplementary house, it serves as a summer living room and spaces for guests. The overall feel is more open and light, the interventions are more daring. The original stone walls are completed with a new concrete wall that hides a staircase and a sauna. Above these walls all inner surfaces are united with white paint in order to emphasize the original wooden roof frame. The main living space extends to the terraces by folding glass doors and also opens up towards old trees by a large fixed glass. The new heart of the space is the open fireplace created of a massive stone from a nearby slope. Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe whole process took up over four years and although the design had been still in progress, the basic concept even crystallized during this time.

Open letter from Reporters Without Borders to the Tunisian authorities

first_img November 11, 2020 Find out more News Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” News RSF_en Receive email alerts Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Organisation On the first anniversary of the Tunisian revolution, Reporters Without Borders has written to the new Tunisian authorities expressing its concerns.President Moncef MarzoukiPrime Minister Hamadi JebaliConstituent Assembly President Mustafa Ben JafarHonourable Members of the Constituent AssemblyJanuary 2012, Tunis,You, the authorities who were elected by popular will in Tunisia’s first democratic election in more than a quarter-century, are the guarantors of what was won in the revolution that led to Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali’s departure on 14 January 2011. We firmly believe that freedom of expression and freedom of information are at the heart of every nation’s democratic future. These principles have become a reality in post-Ben Ali Tunisia and it is everyone’s duty to preserve them.Thanks to its bureau in Tunis, Reporters Without Borders has for months been following media developments in the capital and provinces and the difficulties involved in renewing the media, especially the broadcast media. It should not be forgotten that Tunisia’s first free elections were covered by TV stations that date back to the time of the former president, a predator of press freedom. Recently adopted legislative provisions should open the way to more pluralism in the broadcasting sector.Aware of the importance of creating solid legal frameworks for the media, Reporters Without Borders has also been following the drafting of laws and has provided advice on the press code to the media subcommittee headed by Ridha Jenayah, an offshoot of the High Authority for Reform, Democratic Transition and Preservation of the Revolution’s Gains. The comments made by Reporters Without Borders’ legal committee were incorporated in the bill which Béji Caïd Essebsi’s government adopted on the eve of the elections to the Constituent Assembly.While some progress has been made as regards drafting legislation and creating new media, Reporters Without Borders is concerned to see an increase in pressure on journalists and media in recent months. The slogan that Reporters Without Borders chose in October for the inauguration of his new office – “Free until when?” – seems particularly appropriate now.The police violence against two journalists on 3 January, and the police violence against journalists in May and July of 2011 were extremely worrying. They are reminiscent of the repressive police and security practices of an era than everyone thought was over. The interior ministry should systematically investigate cases of physical violence by police officers against journalists and the findings of these investigations should be made public. In partnership with media freedom organizations in Tunisia, the police and journalists should also be given training in awareness of each other’s work.The recent appointments of persons to head the state-owned media, announced by the Prime Minister on 7 January, are contrary to the provisions of article 19 of Decree Law No. 2011-116 of 2 November and constitute a flagrant violation of media independence. We call on the government to immediately backtrack and to rescind the appointments of editors in chief and news director.While the Prime Minister has the right to handle the administrative appointments, we regret that that he did not give priority to the creation of the High Independent Authority for Broadcasting Communication, as provided for in last November’s decree. The 10 January attempt at the behest of Adnène Khedr, the new CEO of the Tunisian Television Establishment, to prevent the weekly El Oula from publishing an investigative report on the financial benefits he allegedly received in the past only increases our concern.Similarly, while the notorious Tunisian Agency for External Communication (ATCE) has officially suspended its activities, it has nonetheless continued to exist as entity designed to ban the distribution of certain newspapers within Tunisia, as it did in Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali’s time. As a result, the distribution of two French weeklies (L’Express and Le Nouvel Observateur) was recently prevented because they contained representations of the Prophet. The authorities should clarify whether or not a mechanism for prior censorship as been put in place. If it has, it would represent a return to sadly notorious practices.Reporters Without Borders would also like to express its concern about the danger posed to media freedom in Tunisia by the increase in religious extremism. Salafist groups have been using various intimidatory methods, and have not hesitated to harass media, in order to discourage journalists who want to cover stories related to religion. The legal proceedings brought against Nessma TV and its leading shareholder last October after the broadcasting of the film Persepolis and the 11 January attack on Nessma journalist Soufiène Ben Hamida, whose car was previously daubed with the word “non-believer,” shows that Tunisia’s journalists and media need more than ever for the country’s authorities to defend freedom of expression and the right of its journalists to be able to work without being harassed.It is high time that the new authorities assume their responsibility as regards all these problems. They must send a strong signal to all those who flout freedom of expression and the freedom of journalists to be able to report the news in a completely independent manner. Aside from the controversies, the political issues and individual religious convictions, freedom of expression should be the subject of a consensus and should be protected by everyone as one of the revolution’s first gains. Everyone is concerned by it. It is the starting point for freedom. And it could be the point of return to dictatorship.Reporters Without Borders remains at your side, ready to help turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s realities and available to hold detailed talks with you on the points raised in this letter.With our most sincere democratic greetings, TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa News January 12, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter from Reporters Without Borders to the Tunisian authorities Follow the news on Tunisia News Jean-François JulliardReporters Without Borders secretary-general Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists December 26, 2019 Find out more Help by sharing this information November 12, 2019 Find out more to go furtherlast_img read more

Abidjan state media mix propaganda, disinformation and incitement to riot

first_img Receive email alerts News Côte d’IvoireAfrica Organisation The state media in Ivory Coast have become the exclusive mouthpiece of the government and its allies and are being used to promote street demonstrations, Reporters Without Borders said today after monitoring many state radio and TV broadcasts.The organisation said the broadcasting of hate messages and countless unverified news reports has aggravated the on-going violence in the Abidjan area and it urged the state media to act responsibly. After the ransacking of opposition newspapers last week, the state-owned radio and TV stations have become the most important source of news and information for residents of Abidjan, the country’s economic capital.”In times of crisis like this, journalists must take extra care and make a special effort to be professional in their work,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is unfortunately clear that this has not been the case with the Ivorian state media during last weekend’s violence in Abidjan. We must point out, in particular, that the state media are continuing to broadcast biased reports and appeals for riots, despite calls for a return to normality by the authorities.”Reporters Without Borders added: “If President Laurent Gbagbo does not want to be accused of saying one thing and doing another, he must ensure that the official media are no longer used as tools for organising and mobilising the pro-governmental Young Patriots.”Religious imprecations and hate messagesWith few exceptions, the reports carried on Radio Côte d’Ivoire (RCI) and RadioTélévision Ivoirienne (RTI) have strayed completely from journalism into propaganda. Interspersed with nationalistic songs, phone-in contributions and interviews, RCI presenters flatter the “patriotism” of their listeners.Yesterday, shortly after 10 a.m. (local time and GMT), a preacher from the Church of the Living Word went on the air with violent imprecations. “The country must be delivered from the evil ones,” he said, claiming that French President Jacques Chirac is “inhabited by the spirt of Satan.” Ivory Coast was “divided into two blocs, with the Devil’s bloc on one side and God’s bloc on the other” and it was up to the “patriots” to ensure that the second prevailed, he said. His monologue ended with a ringing “Amen, pastor” from the two RCI presenters.Throughout the 90 minutes of Reporters Without Borders’s monitoring of RCI yesterday, the same two presenters regularly punctuated their live comments with such slogans as “Vigilance, patriots” and “Thanks be to the fatherland.”This morning on RTI, Reporters Without Borders noted that President Chirac and the French soldiers of the Force Licorne were systematically referred to as “settlers” and “imperialists.” In general, comments and reports tended to focus on the claim that France is in the process of carrying out a “coup d’etat” against Ivory Coast, despite the denials by both the French and Ivorian military.From political messages to organising in the fieldThe Ivorian state media are also being used to organise street activity in Abidjan. More than 24 hours after President Gbagbo called on demonstrators to “return home,” RCI’s broadcasts yesterday were still referring only to the “mobilisation” call made by the Young Patriots, a pro-Gbagbo civilian militia, Reporters Without Borders found. Although leaders of the Young Patriots swear that a few “rebel infiltrators” are to blame for the violence and appeal for “discipline” and “non-violence” on the part of demonstrators, their messages have a double-edge when they are not openly insurrectionary.Yesterday on RCI, shortly after 9:30 a.m. (local time and GMT), a Young Patriots nurse called on supporters to give medicine to the treatment centre installed near the Hotel Ivoire and then made a “patriotic appeal” to Abidjan residents to “go out, go out.” At the end of the afternoon, activists stationed outside the Hotel Ivoire appealed on RTI for “patriots” to join their “brothers” on the street, Reporters Without Borders noted. The presenter who welcomed them into the studio told them they had her “support.”The RCI presenters meanwhile appealed to Abidjan residents to make donations to the Young Patriots. They thanked a woman who promised to make her car available to them and invited an elderly man who has donated money several times to speak on the air.Today at 11 a.m. (local time and GMT) Reporters Without Borders heard RTI presenter Francis Aka begin by “paying homage” to the “young people who say no to French imperialism,” who “are blocking the conspiracy hatched by France against our country” and to whom Ivorians “owe their survival.” He then gave the microphone to the president of the United Youth for Laurent Gbagbo’s Ideas (JUILG) and the secretary-general of the pro-Gbagbo Union for Democracy and Progress (UDP), who appealed to “young people… to mobilise against France, the unmasked aggressor.” Ivorian youths were urged to “go to the headquarters of RTI, the presidential residence and the radio stations” and to thereby “continue the mobilisation until our country is completely liberated.”Disinformation and incitement to riotThe head of the Young Patriots, Charles Blé Goudé, gave the signal for the anti-French uprising on the evening of 6 November on the air on RTI, urging his supporters “wherever they are” to “take to the streets.”Pascal Affi Nguessan, the head of the Ivorian Popular Front (FPI) – the president’s party – meanwhile went on television the same day to ask the Young Patriots to “massively” take over the streets of Abidjan in order to forestall any action by “foreign forces present on the national territory until total victory.”During the ensuing rioting, the state media carried the false information and rumours that triggered the street violence. On 8 November, for example, the national radio station on several occasion carried “reports” that French soldiers were conveying a “political leader” in one of their armoured vehicles and intended to take him to RTI headquarters so that he could publicly proclaim himself president. RCI presenters subsequently urged Abidjan residents to go out and place gas canisters in the streets to prevent the French troops from circulating.RCI also spread the rumour that the purpose of French troop movements was the removal of President Gbagbo and it urged “patriots” to form a “human shield” around the president’s home.National Assembly president Mamadou Koulibaly went to RTI headquarters the same day to give a long televised speech claiming that the government had “won the war” because it had “proved that France is (the) adversary.””Rumours” that “bring down republics”After delivering inflammatory addresses live on the state media, several Ivorian leaders seem to have realised the dangers of these media excesses. After meeting with the French commander, Gen. Henri Poncet, the chief of staff of the Ivorian Armed Forces, Gen. Mathias Doué, late on 8 November called on everyone to “pay no attention to rumours” that were the source of mistaken “interpretations.” Such interpretations, he said, just “complicate a situation which we (the Ivorian armed forces) can resolve.”Koulibaly, the National Assembly president, then warned that “the most foolish rumours are the ones that bring down republics the fastest.”Despite these comments, UN spokesman Fred Eckhard deplored on the evening of 8 November that the Ivorian media were continuing to disseminate hate messages against at foreigners and he reported that 800 residents of foreign origin had sought refuge and protection at the premises of the UN mission in Ivory Coast.Previous muzzling of opposition and independent pressThe Ivorian Armed Forces offensive against the positions of the ex-rebels in the north of the country was preceded by a crackdown on free expression. A significant part of the press was silenced after the ransacking of several opposition newspapers by pro-government militia, the sabotaging of the FM transmitters that relay the programming of Radio France Internationale (RFI), the BBC World Service and Africa N°1, and the abrupt removal of RTI’s director-general and his replacement by a government supporter, Jean-Paul Dahily.

Utah mayor’s widow: ‘Fitting’ that remains of husband killed in Afghanistan returned to US on Election Day

first_imgFacebook/Brent Taylor(NORTH OGDEN, Utah) — The widow of Maj. Brent Taylor said Tuesday that it was “fitting” that the remains of her slain husband were returned to the United States on Election Day. Taylor, a Utah National Guardsman who was also the mayor of North Ogden, Utah, was slain in an insider attack in Afghanistan this past weekend.In his final Facebook posting a week ago Taylor had encouraged everyone to vote and offered a reminder “that we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us.” Taylor’s remains were returned to Dover Air Force Base early Tuesday morning.An Army honor guard carried the flag-draped transfer case containing his remains from a civilian transport plane into a transfer vehicle. Top Army and National Guard officials were on hand to support Taylor’s widow and the two oldest of their seven children. “I personally cannot find words adequate to tell you all that I feel as I stand here this morning by the dawn’s early light,” Jenny Taylor later told reporters. “And so I echo the words someone recently shared with me, Brent may have died on Afghan soil but he died for the success of freedom and democracy in both of our countries.”“It seems only fitting that Brent who in death now represents so much more than anything, something so much greater than any of our own individual lives, has come home to U.S. soil in a flag-draped casket on our election day,” she said.“It is timeless and cherished honor to serve in our country’s armed services. That honor has been Brent’s has he served in the Utah National Guard for the past 15 years. And it has been mine just as long as I have proudly stood by his side.” She said she shared her husband’s “timeless and cherished honor to serve in our country’s armed services.”“And it has been and will continue to be the great honor of our seven children for the rest of their lives and I pray for many generations to come,” she said.“The price of freedom sure does feel incredibly high to all those of us who know and love our individual soldier,” said Taylor. “But the value of freedom is immeasurable to all who know and love America and all that she represents.”She recalled his final Facebook post from October 28 where he urged friends to vote and offered a reminder that “we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us.”“As the USA gets ready to vote in our own election next week, I hope everyone back home exercises their precious right to vote. And that whether the Republicans or the Democrats win, that we all remember that we have far more as Americans that unites us than divides us. “United we stand, divided we fall.” God Bless America,” he wrote. Taylor was on his fourth deployment overseas, his second to Afghanistan, when he was shot and killed on Sunday in an insider attack carried out by a member of the Afghan security services. The attacker was killed by other Afghan forces.One other American service member who was wounded in the attack is currently undergoing medical treatment but in stable condition, according to a NATO statement.Taylor was elected mayor of North Ogden in 2013 after serving on the City Council since 2009. He held a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Brigham Young University and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Utah, according to the North Ogden city website. He was a current Ph.D. candidate at the University of Utah in International Relations.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
