Akin to the process of building a ship in a bottle, the construction of Casa Murray was conditioned to the amount of space in which it is placed. Projected and built by Diseño Espacial, the house is enclosed by irregular constructions, remains of imprecise divisions of lots that gave place to a narrow corridor, an easement that functions as the only access to the house. It is a construction without facade, without parking space, without a gas installation, solar collectors or a single spot where the street can be observed. Save this picture!Diagram PlansThe house, which serves as a studio for his owner, possesses an introspective design that doesn’t antagonize with the materiality of the surrounding buildings. Under the appearance that the house rises exclusively with cinderblocks, a subtle structure embedded to its perimeter allows the use of all of the lot’s compactness, liberating all of its two principal floors. Only a thirteen-inch column next to the garden provides structural support. In its interior, timber surfaces even out the harshness of the exterior’s concrete, using metallic profiles with black paint to articulate the constructive language of the house.Save this picture!© Ana Eunice Ortíz PámanesThese profiles conform the main bodies of stairs, screens and furniture, the latter partially built with residual construction materials. The project offers affordable dignity in a chaotic part of Mexico City, floating almost invisibly in the unkempt lattice of its south.

RSF_en April 27, 2021 Find out more News Organisation News Reporters Without Borders is concerned about a new crackdown on social-networking tools, especially microblogging services. Dozens of microblog accounts went down yesterday including those of blogger Yao Yuan and lawyer Pu Zhiqiang, who was interviewed by the Associated Press. Four of the leading Chinese microblogging services, Netease, Sina, Tencent and Sohu, were yesterday displaying messages saying they were down for maintenance or had inexplicably reverted to an earlier “beta” testing phase.“This latest censorship attempt shows that the Chinese authorities, who are obsessed with maintaining political stability, mistrust microblogging and its potential for spreading information and mobilising the public,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Nonetheless, despite the massive resources that the regime deploys to control the Internet, it is impossible to keep track of all the flow of information on Twitter and its Chinese equivalents,” the press freedom organisation added. “Microblogging is also used by the government itself as well as by millions of Chinese who have nothing to do with dissidents.”A form of short blog with a maximum of 140 characters, microblogs are have become very popular among Chinese Internet users for disseminating social messages and opinions because of their speed and ability to grab people’s attention. Access to Twitter is blocked by the Great Firewall of China but the site is still accessible for people who know how to use proxies and other censorship circumvention tools.China’s microblogging services are nonetheless scrutinised by censorship filters which analyse both the posts and the shortened URLs that appear in them. For example, here is a link to a recent Reporters Without Borders press release: http://fr.rsf.org/chine-les-autorites-en-croisade-contre-l-07-05-2010,37411.html. And here is an example of a shortened version of the link obtained by a link shortener such as Bit.ly that microbloggers would use because of the need to keep the message to within 140 characters: http://bit.ly/a5F8it. These shortened links are also monitored by the censors in order to block access to undesirable sites.Xiao Qiang, the head of the China Internet Project at the University of California, Berkeley, predicts that censorship will be reinforced during the coming months. He reports that the government has deployed major financial, human and technological resources to ensure its control over Web 2.0.A report recently released by Human Rights in China (HRIC) shares these fears and argues that the Chinese government intends to turn the Internet into a tool for consolidating its authority and promoting Chinese “soft power” internationally.The authorities have already embarked on an offensive against online anonymity, as Reporters Without Borders reported in early May (http://en.rsf.org/china-government-crusade-against-online-07-05-2010,37412.html), when Wang Chen, the deputy head of the Propaganda Department, said they were “exploring an identity authentication system” for users of online forums.Internet users are currently required to register before posting comments on these sites but they can use a pseudonym to post. Wang said that, after preventing anonymous posting on major news portals and commercial websites, the aim now was to extend the system to online forums and chat websites.HRIC has obtained the uncensored version of an internal report by Wang in which he explains the government’s strategy for preventing “harmful foreign information” from appearing “on our domestic Internet” and for “guiding” public opinion by “unifying thinking” and resisting the “hegemony of the western media.” The government’s solution is no less than to disconnect the Chinese Internet altogether from the global Internet (http://www.hrichina.org).The Chinese parliament also adopted an amendment to the State Secrets Law on 29 April that forces Internet and telecommunications companies to cooperate closely with the authorities on matters relating to national security (http://en.rsf.org/china-amendment-enlists-ict-companies-in-29-04-2010,37238.html).

Share 2Save Commentary from Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) said the current crisis presents an opportunity to improve the economy. One of the ways to do so is to change how housing is thought of.The piece was authored by Michael Stegman, a Senior Research Fellow at JCHS, a senior housing policy fellow at the Milken Institute Center for Financial Markets, a Senior Fellow in the Center for Household Financial Stability at the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Community Capital at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.Stegman said a house and neighborhoods play a critical role in a household member’s life.“Housing-related issues are responsible for as much as 40% of children’s asthma episodes, and research indicates that moving an asthmatic child from poor-quality housing into a healthier home reduces asthma-related doctor visits by 66%,” he said in the report. He added that COVID-19 has been a spotlight on the homeless as well as eviction and foreclosures. The report says that the U.S. Department of Education reports there are more than 1.3 million public school students are classified as homeless—2.6% of the total public-school population. This segment has also risen 70% over the past decade.Two members of Congress have put forth proposals to help prevent Americans from losing their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-California) introduced the Emergency Housing Protections and Relief Act of 2020 to provide financial assistance to struggling homeowners and renters, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) introduced the Protecting Renters from Evictions and Fees Act of 2020.In a statement to the House of Representatives, Waters said the nation was facing an affordable housing crisis even before the pandemic, and now “With so many families struggling as a result of the pandemic, we are now on the precipice of an eviction and homelessness crisis like we’ve never seen in our lifetimes.”Another way to rethink housing is to end exclusionary zoning.“Exclusionary zoning and land use controls continue to block low-income and minority Americans from moving to opportunity-rich neighborhoods and communities by rising construction costs and restricting new supply,” he said.JCHS states that according to one estimate, it is illegal to build anything other than a single-family home on 75% of residential space in many American cities.

A bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna & Hrishikesh Roy directed the Centre to identify a list of those hospitals where minimum or free of cost treatment can be done for treatment of Coronavirus and listed the matter after a week.”You identify all those hospitals and find out. You try to find out and see whether these hospitals can charge minimum cost or even free of cost” CJI SA Bobde stated.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta appearing for the Centre before the top court pointed that this being a policy issue requires to be decided by the Government. He stated that he will respond to this prayer and sought time to filed reply accordingly.On April 30th, the top court had issued notice in the plea filed by Sachin Jain and had observed that it could not interfere in matters of Private Hospitals, without giving them an opportunity of being heard.On the last date, petitioner-in-person had submitted that there must be a regulation for all entities as government has given them unfettered powers to charge patients. Jain had further argued that this imposition of unfettered and huge charges did not encompass surgical treatment, but only providing hospital beds to patients.The plea averred that the issue of cost regulations across the country to private and corporate entities for treatment of COVID19 patients was a matter of “urgent consideration” as many private hospitals were commercially exploiting patients suffering from the deadly virus “to make a fortune out of their miseries in the hour of national crisis”.It further elucidated its averments by pointing to various reports of surging bills of covid patients and the resultant barrage on insurance companies for reimbursements.”It is submitted that if such inflated billing by the private hospitals can become a cause of concern for the insurance industry, what will be the plight of a common man who neither has a fat wallet nor an insurance cover to reimburse, in case, he requires hospitalization in a private hospital. It is a matter of grave concern that a large section of people in India still do not possess any insurance cover and are also not benefitted under any government health scheme.” – the petition readsNext Story
This week’s guruBanging on about teamworkGuru has never been shy about banging his own drum so he was delighted to beable to take this tendency to an extreme at the recent Business in theCommunity conference. Much to the surprise of embarrassed CEOs and company big-wigs, all delegateswere presented with a small African drum at the end of the conference whichthey were then encouraged to play in an attempt to build unity. A small army offrantic PRs sealed exits and ushered delegates forward as a look of horrorspread across the faces of the assembled corporate high fliers. A group called the Drum Café led the drumming, which it claims breaks downbarriers, encourages teamwork and encourages managers to listen to colleagues.Most at the conference made a speedy exit as soon as possible, but much likeAnimal from the Muppet show, Guru was still there at the end of the nightmanically banging away alone. Coarse culture a tonic for IndiansCall centre workers in India arebeing taught all the latest gossip from Brookside, EastEnders and CoronationStreet to help them get on the same wavelength as their UK customers.Up to 100,000 Indian workers, contracted to the likes of GreatUniversal and British Airways, are being offered college ‘culture courses’ at£200 a head.Besides learning about the latest happenings on The Street andThe Square, they are taught about the British love of football, beer and fishand chips and how to adapt their accents.Guru is depressed – what a sad indictment of UK culture that itis best known for depressing soap operas, football, beer and fish and chips.Criminal tendencies awakened bycodeThis week, Guru is toying with theidea of becoming an arch-criminal. Guru’s domestic balance sheet was starting to look a littleone-sided following his unfortunate consultancy associations with Enron andWorldCom, when along comes the latest draft of the (mis) InformationCommission’s monitoring code. Having read the details, Guru feels confident that he couldpull off a multi-million pound fraud. So for you disillusioned disciples, whonow realise how small their pensions will be and have decided to leak sensitivedata to competitors, here’s how: – Do all dodgy phone calls in the toilet, and send e-mails fromyour boss’s office – both have been designated as areas where staff can expectprivacy and employers would need evidence and police involvement to monitor;– Ensure all e-mails start with ‘Watcha Love Bundle’ or‘Dearest Snooky’, and send them to a ‘personal’ address – employers cannot open‘personal’ e-mails unless they have evidence of wrong-doing.So, while today Guru is harnessing the internet at work to playa game testing his ability to spot the difference between ladies and lady-boys,tomorrow he will use the same medium to RULE THE WORLD. CRE boss slip up is just notcricketGuru has kindly been invited to Lordsthis week to discuss sustainable growth in the energy sector – and watch aglorious England cricket victory over India, of course. Gentlemanly conduct will be top of Guru’s agenda followingGurbux Singh’s recent googly at the one-day international between the twocountries. The head of the Commission for Racial Equality was arrested forthe alleged use of threatening behaviour after stumbling into a policeofficer. Singh was detained, before being released.
