Winkley Workshop is a new three storey 2-bedroom residence on the site of a former upholsterer’s workshop measuring 12m long by 3.7m. Upon this small plot, a 2-bedroom open plan home with strong interconnectivity between internal and external spaces has been achieved.Save this picture!© David ButlerIn order to accommodate the required internal and external areas the original footprint was increased by digging a new basement and extending the roof, which had to be cranked according to daylight angles to protect neighbouring properties. To the street the building is a modest addition, yet upon entry the open-ness and scale of the property is revealed. To each floor the plan was arranged to prioritise space according to what is used and enjoyed.Save this picture!SectionThe layout was conceived as a vertical sequence from public to private. At basement level an open plan kitchen, dining and living space is designed as an extension of the outdoor area. A brick herringbone floor flows out into the rear private courtyard with a double height void and oversized glazing to blur the delineation between inside, allowing ample daylight and views to this lower level.Save this picture!© David ButlerThe middle mezzanine level is interconnected with the basement level via a library bookcase that faces into the double height void. A curtain partition allows this room to flex its function as a study extension of the living area or a private sleeping area.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerAn open plan master with ensuite to the top level leads onto a private balcony, continuing this pursuit of light filled, outdoor based living that distinguishes the residence.Save this picture!© David ButlerThe experience of the property is open and voluminous, achieved through the strategic interplay of floorplates that enable lines of sight through the house. Services and back-of-house functions are located out-of-sight under stairs or in zones with poor daylight levels so that the living and bedroom areas are unobstructed and light filled. Internal walls were deliberately avoided to enhance the perceived openness, and thus curtains and joinery are used for privacy and delineation where possible.Save this picture!BasementThe minimal presence of internal walls and use of setbacks and cutouts in floorplates, paired with extensive glazing, gives a sense of lightness and openness that belies the scale of the property and its dense urban setting.Save this picture!© Tim CrockerProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma Breaks Ground on Luxury Rolex Tower in DallasArchitecture NewsHow to Render Your Building to Sell it, Not Just Show itArticles Share IMS Building Solutions ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/771668/winkley-workshop-kirkwood-mccarthy Clipboard CopyAbout this officeKirkwood McCarthyOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationLondonUnited KingdomPublished on August 12, 2015Cite: “Winkley Workshop / Kirkwood McCarthy” 12 Aug 2015.

SGA approves funding for self-defense keychains

first_imgReddIt ReddIt Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/ ACT, SAT scores now optional for students applying to TCU in 2021 Officer Pamela Christian demonstrates to student government how to use the Kubaton self defense key chain. (Photo courtesy Michael Rogers) Former President Jimmy Carter hospitalized Michael Rogershttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michael-rogers/ Twitter TCU, SMU students collaborate on app for students, businesses Facebook Michael Rogers printThe Student Government Association wants to equip students with self-defense keychains meant to ward off attackers, but some students are questioning the purchase.SGA has agreed to spend $535 to pay for 100 Kubatons for participants in the university’s Rape Aggression Defense Program (R.A.D.), which focuses on teaching women to protect themselves. TCU also offers Resisting Aggression with Defense (R.A.D.), which teaches men steps to avoid aggressive behavior.The pointed sticks, typically aluminum, are five to six inches long and can be used to fight off potential attackers.TCU Crime Prevention Officer Pam Christian demonstrated that if a person is being held from behind, she could swing an arm forward and with her backswing hit the attacker in the groin area.Some students questioned whether the keychains were a good buy.“Those funds would be better used in advertising for the program and equipping more people with the skills to defend themselves,” said Sarah Nichols, a junior economics and communications double major.Lauren Fisher, a junior communications major, suggested, “the money could go towards more courses. It could also go towards getting more people involved in the program and promoting it more.”But Abbey Widick, SGA vice president of operations, said it’s important to collaborate with TCU police and its effort to empower students and help them feel safe.R.A.D., which has been offered on campus since 1996, teaches martial arts and self-defense tactics with and without the Kubaton to help students defend themselves against assaults.Christian said the program prepares individuals to take safety into their own hands.Students are taught to resist the attacker for as long as they can and to do the unexpected — which includes erratic behavior, uncontrollable laughing, or acting like an animal to deflect the attacker’s advances.R.A.D. classes are offered once a semester through the TCU Police Department and sign up is available online through the department’s website.

Cuba second from last, just ahead of North Korea

first_imgNews RSF_en October 20, 2003 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Cuba second from last, just ahead of North Korea Reporters Without Borders published its second world press freedom ranking on 20 October 2003. As in 2002, the most catastrophic situation is to be found in Asia, especially North Korea, Burma and Laos. Second from last in the ranking, Cuba is today the world’s biggest prison for journalists. The United States and Italy were given relatively low rankings. Organisation Reporters Without Borders today publishes its second world press freedom ranking. Like last year, the most catastrophic situation is to found in Asia, with eight countries in the bottom ten: North Korea, Burma, Laos, China, Iran, Vietnam, Turkmenistan and Bhutan. Independent news media are either non-existent in these countries, or are constantly repressed by the authorities. Journalists there work in extremely difficult conditions, with no freedom and no security. A number of them are imprisoned in Burma, China and Iran.Cuba is in 165th position, second from last. Twenty-six independent journalists were arrested in the spring of 2003 and sentenced to prison terms ranging from 14 to 27 years, making Cuba the world’s biggest prison for journalists. They were accused of writing articles for publication abroad that played into the hands of “imperialist interests.” Eritrea, in 162nd position, has the worst situation in Africa. Privately-owned news media have been banned there for the past two years and 14 journalists are being held in undisclosed locations.To compile this ranking, Reporters Without Borders asked journalists, researchers, jurists and human rights activists to fill out a questionnaire evaluating respect for press freedom in a particular country. A total of 166 countries are included in the ranking (as against 139 last year). The other countries were left out because of a lack of reliable, well-supported data.- Wealth and press freedom don’t always go togetherAs in 2002, the ranking shows that a country’s respect for press freedom is not solely linked to its economic development. The top 50 include countries that are among the poorest in the world, such as Benin (29th position), Timor-Leste (30th) and Madagascar (46th).Conversely, the 50 countries that respect press freedom least include such rich nations as Bahrain (117th) and Singapore (144th).- Special situation of the United States and IsraelThe ranking distinguishes behaviour at home and abroad in the cases of the United States and Israel. They are ranked in 31st and 44th positions respectively as regards respect for freedom of expression on their own territory, but they fall to the 135th and 146th positions as regards behaviour beyond their borders.The Israeli army’s repeated abuses against journalists in the occupied territories and the US army’s responsibility in the death of several reporters during the war in Iraq constitute unacceptable behaviour by two nations that never stop stressing their commitment to freedom of expression.- General deterioration in the Arab worldThe war in Iraq played a major role in an increased crackdown on the press by the Arab regimes. Concerned about maintaining their image and facing public opinion largely opposed to the war, they stepped up control of the press and increased pressure on journalists, who are forced to use self-censorship.Kuwait (102nd) replaced Lebanon (106th) as the Arab world’s leader as regards respect for freedom of expression because of cases of censorship in Lebanon, together with abusive judicial proceedings and an attack on the television station Futur TV. Saudi Arabia (156th), Syria (155th), Libya (153rd) and Oman (152nd) used all the means at their disposal to prevent the emergence of a free and independent press.In Morocco (131st), the hopes pinned on Mohammed VI when he became king in July 1999 have been dashed. Independent newspapers are still subject to constant harassment from the authorities. Ali Lmrabet, the publisher and editor of two satirical weeklies, was sentenced in June 2003 to three years in prison for “insulting the person of the king” because of articles and cartoons touching on taboo subjects.- European Union gets good rankings, except Italy and SpainItaly received a poor ranking (53rd) compared with the other European Union countries for the second year running. Silvio Berlusconi’s conflict of interests as head of government and owner of a media empire is still unresolved. Furthermore, a draft law to reform radio and TV broadcasting, tailored to Berlusconi’s interests, is likely to increase the threats to news diversity in Italy.Spain’s relatively low ranking (42nd) is due to difficulties for journalists in the Basque country. The terrorist organisation ETA has stepped up its threats against the news media, promising to target journalists whose coverage does not match its view of the situation. Furthermore, the necessary fight against terrorism has affected press freedom, with the forced closure as a “preventive measure” of the Basque newspaper Egunkaria, whose senior staff are suspected of collaborating with ETA.France is ranked as low as 26th because of its archaic defamation legislation, the increasingly frequent challenges to the principle of confidentiality of sources and the repeated abusive detention of journalists by police.- Former USSR still lags behindThe situation remains worrying in Russia (148th), Ukraine (132nd) and Belarus (151st). A truly independent press exists in Russia, but Russia’s poor ranking is justified by the censorship of anything to do with the war in Chechnya, several murders and the recent abduction of the Agence France-Presse correspondent in Ingushetia. Russia continues to be one of the world’s deadliest countries for journalists.Press freedom is virtually non-existent in much of central Asia, especially Turkmenistan (158th) and Uzbekistan (154th). No criticism of the authorities is tolerated.- Non-state violenceSeveral countries with a democratically-elected government and a free and independent press have poor rankings. This is most notably the case with Bangladesh (143rd), Colombia (147th) and Philippines (118th). Journalists in these countries are the victims of violence that comes not only from the state but also from political parties, criminal gangs or guerrilla groups. In other cases, such as Nepal (150th), the press is caught in the cross fire between security forces and rebels.Such violence results in considerable self-censorship by the news media, which do not dare to broach such subjects as corruption, collusion between political leaders and organised crime, or sectarian clashes. At the same time, the authorities very often fail to respond to this violence with the appropriate measures, namely protection for journalists and the punishment of those responsible.- News is the victim of war in AfricaWars and serious political crises have inevitably had an impact on press freedom in Africa. The three countries that have fallen most in the ranking in the past 12 months are Côte d’Ivoire (137th), Liberia (132nd) and Guinea-Bissau (118th). Local and foreign journalists were exposed to the violence of the warring parties in Côte d’Ivoire and Liberia, while the military closed down news media in Guinea-Bissau.- – Read the first world press freedom ranking- Download the ranking 😐 | | | | | Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more
