This Project involves a single-family townhouse in La Encantada, a suburb on the Lima shoreline. Given its sub-urban nature, the house design is nourished with the purpose of seeking the strongest relationship between the property’s constructed space and its indoor garden.Save this picture!First Floor PlanRecommended ProductsMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsFor that purpose, a compact space design was thought to contain the program (social area, private area, general service area, etc.) which is intersected by a folded plane. This architectural folding is intended to connect the house’s front garden with the indoor spaces through a spatial round-journey of single and double heights. In this way, the simplicity of the major volume space is altered, but at the same time enriched with spaces, which are connecting it with and freeing it from the green area surrounding it. Save this picture!© Elsa RamirezThe project, placed on a corner, is set within a two-storey volume. The bureau, social area (living-dining room), kitchen and services area are found on the first floor, The stairs, placed in a double-height space, can be seen from the main entrance.  Save this picture!© Elsa RamirezThey lead to the second floor where the house’s more private areas are found, including: main bedroom, 3 bedrooms for children and a family room.

Journalists attacked by armed students on university campus, some held hostage

Follow the news on Venezuela August 25, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts January 13, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today condemned the use of violence by students, some armed with hand guns, against journalists with the regional Notitarde newspaper on 28 October when they went to cover the discovery of home-made bombs on the Carabobo university campus in the western city of Valencia. One of the journalists and her driver were briefly taken hostage.“It is astonishing to hear of firearms and explosives on a university campus, and it is even more astonishing that the university authorities took so long to react,” the press freedom organisation said. “We hope a thorough investigation will lead to the punishment of those involved in the attack on the Notitarde team, and will determine whose action or negligence was to blame for this climate of violence.”Five home-made bombs were discovered on the campus on the morning of 28 October after the rector received threatening phone calls the night before. One of these small bombs, hidden near the rector’s office, exploded, releasing leaflets criticising President Hugo Chávez’s “communist” government and his alliance with Cuban leader Fidel Castro, but causing no damage or injuries.A Notitarde team consisting of reporter Alecia Rodríguez del Valle, photographers Dorian González and Fernando Aguirre, and driver Jair Hurtado went to the social science and economy faculty where four of the five bombs had been found. They arrived just after a fight broke out between rival student groups. González began to take photographs but was attacked by several students. Some of them carried hand-guns, Notitarde told Reporters Without Borders. González managed to flee as did Aguirre, at which point some of the armed students took Rodríguez and her driver hostage and threatened to kill them. Rodríguez was finally released after she said she worked for a newspaper from another state. She then used her mobile phone to try to get the driver, Hurtado, freed. A student warned her : “You have five minutes to hand over the photographer or his photos, or you will pay the consequences.” Hurtado was finally release after half an hour of negotiations.

Call for global crackdown on fake medicines

first_img 16 Views   no discussions Share HealthLifestyle Call for global crackdown on fake medicines by: – November 14, 2012 Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img Share Share Counterfeit drugs may contain harmful ingredients or no active ingredient at allA global treaty to crack down on the deadly trade of fake medicines is urgently needed, say experts.Currently, there are more sanctions around the use of illegal tobacco than counterfeit drugs. Writing in the British Medical Journal, experts urge the World Health Organization to set up a framework akin to its one tobacco control to safeguard the public. WHO says more than one in every 10 drug products in poorer nations are fake.A third of malaria drugs are counterfeit, research suggests. In richer countries, medicine safety is better, but substandard and falsified drugs still cause thousands of adverse reactions and some deaths. Recently, in the US, contaminated drug supplies caused an outbreak of meningitis that has so far killed 16 people.Global problemAmir Attaran and colleagues from the World Federation of Public Health Associations, International Pharmaceutical Federation and the International Council of Nurses, say while governments and drug companies alike deplore unsafe medicines, it is difficult to achieve agreement on action because discussions too often trespass into conflict-prone areas such as pharmaceutical pricing or intellectual property rights.Although some countries prohibit fake medicines under national law, there is no global treaty which means organised criminals can continue to trade using haven countries where laws are lax or absent. WHO estimates nearly a third of countries have little or no medicine regulation.In other contexts, global treaties have helped governments strengthen their laws and cooperate internationally to clamp down on havens – for example, on money laundering. Similarly, a new protocol under the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control requires tobacco products to be tracked and criminalises illicit trade globally – “oddly making the law tougher on cigarette falsification than on medicine falsification”, says Amir Attaran. “The protocol will now make it a requirement to track and trace tobacco products. Cigarette packets can carry serial numbers so it is possible to track them from beginning to end.“If this is something you can do for a $5 cigarette packet I do not see why we can’t do it for a $3,000 packet of drugs that could save your life.“In Canada we have seen a fake version of the heart drug Avastin come into the country that contains no active drug, just starch and nail polish remover. “When you are dealing with a medicine like that if there was a serial number on it you would be able to easily see if it was fake.”WHO says it provides direct country and regional support for strengthening medicines regulation.And it is up to its 194 member states to decide if a treaty is the way forward. In 2011, a directive to protect patients from fake medicines was approved by the European Parliament.By Michelle RobertsHealth editor, BBC News onlinelast_img read more
