The project site is characterized by a steep slope with a constant inclination except the central area where there is a flat surface of arrangement.The view is truly amazing, from  anywhere of the lot we can appreciate the green hills sloping down to the sea and blend with the blue horizon.

The rigorous development of the building creates a kind of telescope that allows, from the garden, to frame the panorama to the sea.

Refusal to free two journalists signals end of rule of law in Turkey

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expressionCouncil of Europe News January 15, 2018 Refusal to free two journalists signals end of rule of law in Turkey Turkey: implement Constitutional Court decision to free journalists The journalists Şahin Alpay and Mehmet Altan are still in prison, four days after Turkey’s constitutional court ordered their release. Istanbul courts refused to free them again today, continuing to defy the country’s highest court.In terms of straying from the rule of law, Turkey is now deep into uncharted terrain. Today was the fifth time that lower courts used one pretext or another to defy the ruling that the constitutional court issued on 11 January.“The imprisonment of Şahin Alpay and Mehmet Altan was already shocking and now it is illegal,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “If they are not freed very soon, it will be clear that no vestige of the rule of law remains in Turkey. We call on the European Court of Human Rights to take note. The European Court appears more than ever to be the only recourse available to Turkey’s imprisoned journalists.”Alpay was arrested in July 2016, Altan two month later. In separate cases, both are facing possible life sentences on charges of “trying to overthrow the government” and links with “terrorist organizations.”Many other journalists, including Deniz Yücel, Ahmet Şık, Nazlı Ilıcak and Ahmet Turan Alkan, are also being detained unjustly in Turkey.For more information about this case see:- RSF’s reaction to the constitutional court ruling- The reaction of RSF and seven other NGOs to the initial refusals to execute the ruling RSF_en RSF_EECA to go further Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Turkey Receive email alerts Organisation News Turkey’s constitutional court orders release of two journalists TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expressionCouncil of Europe News January 11, 2018 Find out more January 12, 2018 Find out morelast_img read more

New independent weekly threatened with closure after first issue

RSF_en November 27, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa News Reporters Without Borders today condemned a threat by the Zimbabwean government’s Media and Information Commission (MIC) to suspend or close a new independent newspaper, the Weekly Times, just a few days after its first issue on account of its alleged violation of the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA) and its overly “political” news coverage.”The MIC and information minister Jonathan Moyo continue to crack down on Zimbabwe’s independent media with full impunity in the runup to legislative elections in March,” the press freedom organisation said.”The fact that the Weekly Times was founded with little apparent trouble might have led one to assume the Zimbabwean government was going to change its behaviour toward the independent press, but these closure threats barely a week after the first issue show that it is as determined as ever to repress freedoms,” Reporters Without Borders added.Just days after its first issue appeared on 2 January, the Weekly Times received an official communique from MIC chairman Tafataona Mahoso accusing its management of deceiving the commission as to its “true intentions.”He said the Weekly Times had betrayed a “sectarian” bias, especially in its treatment of President Robert Mugabe, and threatened to either suspend or close the newspaper altogether for failing to respect the terms under which it was allowed to appear. The Weekly Times obtained authorisation to publish last September.Four days before the MIC’s letter arrived, chief executive officer Godfrey Ncube and editor Gibbs Dube were interrogated by police for several hours about the newspaper’s operations.The first issue included an interview with Bulawayo bishop Pius Ncube condemning Mugabe’s failure to repent for the massacres of 20,000 civilians in Gukurahundi in the 1980s. It also referred to a secret meeting organised by Moyo at the end of last year, called the “Tsholotsho Declaration,” that was reportedly aimed at preventing Joyce Mujuru from being appointed vice-president of the ruling Zanu-PF party.In his weekly column in The Herald newspaper on 8 January, Moyo warned that he would like to examine the alleged links between the Weekly Times and the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC).

New Sensis Research Highlights Multicultural Boomer Habits

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Facebook Local NewsBusinesscenter_img TAGS  Previous articleNomad Foods to Present at 2021 CAGNY Virtual ConferenceNext articleTravelers Named a 2021 Military Friendly® Company Digital AIM Web Support Twitter LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– One of the most important generations in American history — baby boomers — is tired. That’s according to the first installment of an extensive research study conducted by the integrated cross-cultural marketing agency Sensis. Baby boomers, those born between 1946 and 1964, have been largely ignored by marketers preoccupied with millennials and Generation Z. But boomers control an estimated $2.6 trillion in spending power. Tapping that well requires a nuanced, multicultural approach. “We have a successful track record of conducting cross-cultural research going back a decade with the Hispanic Persona Project,” President and Chief Strategy Officer José Villa said. “Boomers have never been examined from a multicultural standpoint before now. We are able to capture insights no one else has because we’re not looking at them like a monolith.” In the first of six installments, boomers revealed that the pandemic has been exhausting. Their lives have been upended with adult children forced to move home, sometimes bringing their children. It has put a strain on families. In the July 2020 survey, 44% of boomers said they enjoyed spending time with their kids, down 8% from 52% in November 2019. Whites, Blacks and Asians expressed similar rates of familial fatigue while 48% of Hispanics reported enjoying their kids’ company. Boomers also reported being eager to travel farther from home, the longer they sheltered. Only 23% of boomers said they enjoyed staying close to home while vacationing in 2020, compared to nearly 34% of boomers in 2019. Since so much of their lives have been relocated to screens, boomers are now facing serious social media fatigue. Only 37% of boomers said they were excited about connecting with family and friends over social media in 2020, compared with 50% in 2019. Future installment topics and release dates: Exercise / health — March 2021Home & family — May 2021Buying behavior / planned purchases / vehicles — July 2021Media & technology attitudes — September 2021Retirement planning & career — October 2021 Sensis is hosting a webinar on the Boomer Cultures Report Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. PST.

Manhunt underway for boyfriend accused of killing Connecticut nightclub owner

first_imgiStock(WATERBURY, Conn.) — A manhunt is underway for the boyfriend of a beloved Waterbury, Connecticut, nightclub owner whose body was discovered in a wooded area almost 10 miles away from her business and home, police said.Eight days after Janet Avalo-Alvarez was last seen by her friends, family and co-workers on Nov. 12, investigators from the Waterbury Police Department confirmed the “worst nightmare, fears of the family, friends,” Lt. David Silverio said at a press conference on Wednesday.Authorities were lead to an area near Wolcott Road and Route 69 in Wolcott, Connecticut, on Tuesday. They found a body and turned it over to the city’s medical examiner.An autopsy revealed the body was Avalo-Alvarez’s and that she had been killed by “neck compression,” Silverio said.“We are going through a lot of pain,” Grisela Guirreio, a family friend, said to ABC Hartford, Connecticut, affiliate WTNH-TV at a candlelight vigil Wednesday evening.Police said Avalo-Alvarez, 26, owner of the La Guakara Taina Bar on East Main Street, worried her family with “unusual” behavior on Nov. 13 when she left her car parked behind the club, abruptly stopped communicating with her loved ones and wasn’t posting on social media.During the search for Avalo-Alvarez, her live-in boyfriend and business partner Alfredo Esmerli Peguero-Gomez fled the state, police said. His car was found Nov. 15 in a parking lot at Newark International Airport in New Jersey, police said in a Nov. 18 statement.Peguero-Gomez is a dual citizen of the United States and Dominican Republic.“Mr. Alfredo Peguero-Gomez is a suspect in the homicide of Ms. Janet Avalo-Alvarez. It is an open an active investigation,” Silverio said in an email to ABC News on Thursday.Phone calls made by ABC News to Peguero-Gomez were not successful.The couple had no history of domestic incidents, but their relationship was described by friends and co-workers as “being up and down, and they argued frequently about personal matters and business issues,” Silverio said.“The detectives are working with U.S. Marshals Service to locate Mr. Peguero-Gomez,” Silverio said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Bowling Green State University student in critical condition after alleged fraternity hazing incident

first_imgkali9/iStockBy MARLENE LENTHANG and NICHOLAS CIRONE, ABC News(BOWLING GREEN, Ohio) — A Bowling Green State University student is in critical condition after an alleged hazing incident involving alcohol.The student has been identified as Stone Foltz, family attorney Sean Alto told ABC News.Foltz was hospitalized after “alleged hazing activity involving alcohol consumption” at an off-campus Pi Kappa Alpha event in Bowling Green, Ohio, the university said in a statement.He is currently in critical condition, according to the ProMedica Toledo Hospital. Doctors treating Foltz are going through the organ donation process, Alto said.The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity told ABC News in a statement they were “horrified and outraged” by the incident.The fraternity erroneously said that Foltz had died in its initial statement.“We extend our deepest and sincere sympathy to the student’s family and friends and all of those affected by this tragic loss,” the organization said. That statement was later updated to remove any reference to the student’s death.In response to the initial statement, Alto told ABC News, “It’s insensitive and inappropriate to put out a statement that he has passed away when he hasn’t. The info is still coming out, just wait and gather the facts. It’s horrible to do this in advance of the family. They are solely focused on their son, their brother, their grandson.”The Delta Beta Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha at BGSU has been placed on administrative suspension following the incident, per the international fraternity.“As more details are confirmed, we will also pursue permanent suspension of Delta Beta Chapter as well as expulsion of all chapter members from the International Fraternity,” the organization said.The international fraternity said it will cooperate fully with authorities in the matter.The university said it is aware of the incident and the fraternity would be placed on interim suspension as they work with law enforcement to investigate. “We want to express our care and support of our students and community affected,” university spokesperson Alex Solis said.ABC News’ Jamie Aranoff, Mona Kosar Abdi and Joshua Hoyos contributed to this report.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
