New images by Rasmus Hjortshoj shows ADEPTs contribution to the area – Theodora House – shot in a corona-closed Copenhagen. Save this picture!© Rasmus HjortshojTheodora House, named after the Carlsberg founder’s daughter, is located right beside the famous Elephants Gate and adapted in materials and scale to its historic surroundings. Part of the building complex is new construction and part of it is re-use of a former yeast storage that used to fill the plot.Save this picture!ConceptOnly one wing of the storage was preservable and now occupied by office spaces overlooking one of Carlsberg City’s small plazas. The new part of the building is mainly apartments but where it meet the street and plazas is has spaces for shops and cafés. Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanTheodora House emphasizes the complex character of Carlsberg with facades reflecting local history. Walking around the building it is obvious that it ‘absorbs’ the various brick expressions in the area – making it stand out as both its own and carefully adapted to the neighborhood. The original façade of the Yeast Storage has been preserved. Transition to the new part of the building is carefully handled through the Elephants Gate. The new brick was selected to respect the existing, yet make a modern statement. Save this picture!© Rasmus HjortshojThe curved brick that identifies the facade to the North was designed for the building in close collaboration with the brick manufacturer. The curves gives a varied play of texture that gradient towards the roof. The gates facing the street shows motives from the history of the Yeast Storage. The inner courtyard makes a strong contrast to the brick facades, and here, in time, green walls will embrace a small resident’s garden.Save this picture!© Rasmus HjortshojProject gallerySee allShow lessA Multidisciplinary Landscape Architecture Competition Generates a Biodiversity Corr…Architecture NewsClément Blanchet: “The Source of Knowledge is in the Past”Interviews Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940000/theodora-house-adept Clipboard Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshoj+ 31Curated by María Francisca González Share Architects: ADEPT Area Area of this architecture project Year: CopyAbout this officeADEPTOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousingApartmentsRefurbishmentKobenhavnOn FacebookKøbenhavnDenmarkPublished on May 22, 2020Cite: “Theodora House / ADEPT” 22 May 2020.

The activity would appear to be a case of “spoofing” in which e-mail addresses, and in some cases Web addresses of legitimate users are used without permission in order to avoid security blocks on sexually explicit material. The Daily Mirror today reports that “a mystery American firm” has “hijacked the Internet addresses” of three UK universities to send pornographic material. The universities targeted are reportedly Warwick, Southampton and Swansea. At least one of these is planning legal action against those responsible.

October 11, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reuters journalist freed: Reporters Without Borders demands release of three others RSF_en News June 3, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on Israel Reporters Without Borders today expressed satisfaction at the release of Reuters sound-man Yusri el-Jamal from the Ofer detention centre near Ramallah on 9 October at the end of his second three-month period of administrative detention.”We are delighted at this release of an unjustly imprisoned journalist,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, “but three other Palestinian journalists are still being held by the Israeli army without charges or trial in bad conditions that endanger their health.”The holding of these three – Hussam Abu Alan, Khalid Ali Mohammed Zwawi and Nizar Ramadan – is totally arbitrary since the Israeli authorities have provided not a shred of evidence or accusation against them. Administrative detention must not be used to silence and ill-treat journalists,” he said.Jamal, 23, and Reuters cameraman Mazen Dana were arrested by Israeli soldiers on 30 April while they were filming wounded people in front of Hebron hospital. They were interrogated the next morning and Dana was released with apologies while Jamal was detained.The Israeli authorities told Reuters in a letter in May said Jamal was “directly connected with terrorist activities that had nothing to do with his work as a journalist.” No details or evidence of this was supplied. He was put in administrative detention for three months on 22 May. A military court on 18 June rejected his application for release and on 11 July his detention was extended by another three months.Administrative detention is a special measure that allows a person to be held for renewable periods of six months without charges and therefore without trial. Neither the prisoners nor their lawyers have access to the case files, although they can appeal against the detention order. Between 800 and 900 Palestinians were estimated last month to be in administrative detention.Alan, an Agence France-Presse (AFP) photographer was arrested on 24 April at the Beit Anun checkpoint near Hebron on his way to cover the funeral of two Palestinians in Bani Naim. Soldiers blindfolded and handcuffed him. The Israeli army told AFP in writing on 3 May that he was suspected of “helping the Tanzim terrorist organisation,” which is considered the armed wing of Al Fatah. The army provided no evidence of this. His lawyer, Mohammed Burghal, says Alan has not been interrogated in the whole time since he was arrested.He was put in administrative detention for three months on 22 May and this was renewed on 22 July by a military court. His lawyer has appealed the decision to the Israeli Supreme Court. Alan has been transferred from very bad conditions at Ofer detention centre to Ketzion prison, in the Negev desert. One of his lawyers was able to visit him briefly on 8 October.Zwawi, of the daily El Istiqlal, was arrested in the middle of the night at his home in Nablus on 15 April by Israeli soldiers who searched the house and seized items. He was taken to the Askalan detention centre.Ramadan, correspondent of the newspaper Al-Quds in Hebron, was arrested on 28 June while he and his family were visiting neighbours, and taken to Ofer. The same day, soldiers went to his office and seized and destroyed material there. On 6 July, the Israelis extended his detention by 18 days without explanation. More than 20 Palestinian journalists have been arrested since the Israeli occupation of Palestinian towns and cities began on 29 March and some of them have been ill-treated.

China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Dhondup Wangchen, a Tibetan filmmaker who has been held since March 2008, was sentenced on 28 December 2009 to six years in prison, Reporters Without Borders has learned from his family, which knows little of the charges on which he was convicted or his present state of health.“This self-taught video-maker, who did nothing but film interviews with Tibetans, has been given a long jail term after judicial proceedings in which his defence rights were violated,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This sentence is a disgrace for China.”The press freedom organisation added: “We call on the judicial authorities to allow Dhondup Wangchen to file an appeal and to grant him a new, fair trial in the presence of a lawyer chosen by him and in the presence of international observers.”Dhondup’s cousin, Gyaljong Tsetrin, a refugee in Switzerland, told Reporters Without Borders: “I am dismayed by the fact that the entire judicial proceedings have been so unfair. I am also very worried for Dhondup Wangchen because he is in a critical situation and the authorities have denied him the medical treatment he needs for his hepatitis B.”Dhondup has been sentenced in Xining, the capital of the western province Qinghai (which has areas with a large Tibetan population). A people’s court in Xining last year refused to allow him to be represented by a lawyer chosen by his family. Dhondup has until 7 January to appeal.His wife, who is a refugee in northern India, said Dhondup just wanted “to do something for Tibet.”Tashi Wangchuk, the head of the Association of Tibetan Journalists, told Reporters Without Borders: “We condemn this decision by the government in Beijing, as it is a violation of press freedom. It is deplorable that we do not even know what charges were brought against him, where he is being held and what his current state of health is.”Dhondup was arrested on 26 March 2008 after filming interviews with Tibetans for a documentary called ‘Leaving Fear Behind.” Petition for Dhondup Wangchen’s releaseDhondup is one of a number of “Olympic prisoners” who were arrested before or during the Olympic Games and who are still being held. Reporters Without Borders is pressing for their release.

Limerick on Covid watch list Limerick centre needed to tackle environmental issues Print TAGSClimate changeEnvironmentLimerick City and CountyNewsprotest NewsEnvironmentPolitics400 join Fridays for Futures marchBy Bernie English – March 20, 2019 1048 Email Attending the Fridays for Futures action on climate change campaign were Eleanor Flanagan, Dara Stack, Clareview, Adam Stapleton, Ballyneety, Mayor James Collins and TD Tom Neville.Picture: Gareth WilliamsTHE LIMERICK student who has taken up the Fridays For Future campaign, striking from school and protesting outside council offices, was joined by more than 400 other children and adults at the weekend protest rally in the city.Saoirse Exton (13), a pupil at Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh, has been striking for three weeks and put out an appeal for others to join her on Friday last, a day for nationwide protest for action on climate change.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Last Friday was incredible. There’s no other word that can even come close to describing it. I was absolutely amazed. That very morning, when we started off and it was just my brother and me, I thought there would be at most 20 people.“At 12:50, we set off towards Arthur’s quay park. Our route was to go up towards Penney’s to catch people’s attention and then from there, head towards the middle of the park.“When we reached Arthur’s Quay park, more and more people started pouring in. There were people from Crescent Comp, Laurel Hill, UL, MIC, LIT, Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh, Castletroy, Pallaskenry, Ardscoil Rís and other secondary and primary schools too”.The protest moved on to city hall, where the Mayor came out to welome them.Addressing the crowd, Saoirse said: “This is going to be written in the History books. We have to do this now because time is running out. I strike for Climate for those who can’t. I strike for the Ugandans who weren’t allowed to strike today by the Ugandan authorities. I strike for the Polar bears, who are going to die out in my life time and the rodent in Australia that has already gone extinct. I strike because corporate businesses need to be put in their place by our governments. And that’s below the people”.Deputy Jan O’Sullivan (Lab) has been visiting Saoirse to offer support in her protests outside the council chambers in O’Connell Street over the last two weeks.“These young people are really showing us the necessity for urgent action. It is their future which is at stake. We have to listen to them but we need to do more than listen – we need to act”.Green Party candidate for Limerick City North, Brian Leddin said, “I have the utmost admiration for these children. It appears that they appreciate more than most the scale of the catastrophe – economic, political, social and environmental – that is set to befall our country and our planet in the coming decades.“These children deserve more than platitudes. For their sakes we must act very decisively and work together to mitigate climate change and reduce its worst impacts.“In a Limerick and Mid West context, this means planning our city very differently. We must resist further urban sprawl and develop a city that is easy, safe and inexpensive for everybody to get around by low emissions modes, and we must invest heavily in our towns and villages and provide excellent low emissions transport links between them”.
