I exposed the linear line at the east side of the house’s facade to reduce the heat in the morning and it designed to be able to open in the evening to gain some natural sunlight.Save this picture!© KIEProject gallerySee allShow lessB Garden / 3andwich Design / He Wei StudioSelected ProjectsTianjin Teda School / schneider+schumacherSelected Projects Share Architects: Rakta Studio Area Area of this architecture project Photographs CopyAbout this officeRakta StudioOfficeFollowProductsConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPadalarangIndonesiaPublished on March 22, 2018Cite: “RN House / Rakta Studio” 21 Mar 2018.

Eurovision – A word about media freedom?

first_img News RSF_en Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Azerbaijan Related documents IPGA 2012 reportPDF – 749.5 KB News AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia May 24, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Eurovision – A word about media freedom? Organisation News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 4, 2021 Find out more News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan to go further Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh June 8, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts The eyes of more than 100 million TV viewers will turn to the Azerbaijani capital of Baku in two days’ time for the Eurovision Song Contest final. The European public will be shown a beautiful country and a hospitable people. “But there is another side to Azerbaijan that the authorities have done everything possible to mask – a repressive and brutal regime that stops at nothing to silence the few journalists who try to investigate sensitive subjects or provide critical news coverage,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We are not trying to spoil the party or, still less, promote any ‘hostile’ political agenda, as the Azerbaijani government likes to claim, but how can song be completely dissociated from freedom of expression? Singers have come from 40 countries to make their voices heard in Baku but other voices will remain unheard. “What about the voices of the blogger and five journalists currently in prison for what they wanted to say, the two journalists who were murdered, the dozens of journalists who have been the victims of physical attacks that go unpunished, and the independent media that have been largely eliminated? Civil society will struggle to make its voice heard. They should all, in their own way, be contributing to the concert.”The Azerbaijani authorities have spent hundreds of millions of petrodollars on giving the capital a facelift for this event, which crowns an international charm offensive. No effort has been spared to project the image of a modern, dynamic and open country, a new Dubai growing at a breakneck pace, with trendy discotheques and welcoming beaches. A paradise for investors if you can turn a blind eye to the corruption.But Azerbaijan is definitely not a paradise for journalists. Nor for human rights in general. Ranked 162nd out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, it also has two of the world’s “predators of freedom of information” that Reporters Without Borders has identified – President Ilham Aliev and his loyal henchman, Vasif Talibov, who tests the most draconian repressive methods in the isolated exclave of NakhchivanThe International Partnership Group for Azerbaijan, a coalition of NGOs that includes Reporters Without Borders, issued a report on 26 March documenting the appalling state of freedom of information in Azerbaijan.A broadcast media regulatory body under the president’s direct control ensures that all radio and TV stations support the government. The few independent publications hardly circulate outside the capital. The media situation deteriorated even more as a result of the violent crackdown on a wave of pro-democracy demonstrations in the spring of 2011, in the wake of the Arab revolts. Bloggers were arrested and beaten, opposition journalists were abducted and foreign journalists were deported.The remaining handful of independent journalists are often the targets of threats and smear campaigns. The murders of two outspoken journalists, Elmar Huseynov in 2005 and Rafik Tagi in 2011, are still unpunished, as are the frequent physical attacks on journalists.“We urge the performers taking part in this event to express their support for Azerbaijan’s civil society and media,” Reporters Without Borders added. “France’s representative, Anggun, is said to be sensitive to human rights issues. Will she point to the parallels between the prison environment shown in her video clip and the fate that Azerbaijani journalists often suffer?“The European Broadcasting Union, which oversees the contest, should start to speak out about the grave situation of Azerbaijan’s media, in accordance with the principles and values it is supposed to promote. Finally, we appeal to each of the 1,600 journalists who are expected, urging them to assign at least a few hours of their visit to conducting interviews and research into this issue.”By turning the international spotlight on Azerbaijan, the authorities have given civil society an unexpected chance to make its voice heard. Azerbaijani civil society now needs the support of the international community. It must also be ready for the reprisals that are liable to follow once all the cameras have left.Get informed, join the campaign! – International Partnership Group for Azerbaijan- Sing for Democracy campaign- Read the report “Running scared.

Medical Infrastructure In UP ‘Delicate, Fragile & Debilitated’: Allahabad High Court Suggests Measures For Improvement

first_imgTop StoriesMedical Infrastructure In UP ‘Delicate, Fragile & Debilitated’: Allahabad High Court Suggests Measures For Improvement Sparsh Upadhyay17 May 2021 9:23 PMShare This – xReuters photo for representationStressing that when Medical Infrastructure which couldn’t meet the medical requirements of our people in normal times then it definitely had to collapse in the face of the present pandemic, the Allahabad High Court in Monday (May 17) suggested several measures for the development of the medical infrastructure in the State. A Division Bench of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar also observed, “So far as the medical infrastructure is concerned, in these few months we have realized that in the manner it stands today, it is very delicate, fragile and debilitated” Further, the Court suggested the following measures and asked the Government to check their viability at the highest level and file a report on the next date: All nursing homes should have an oxygen facility on every bed. Every nursing home/ hospital which has more than 20 beds should have at least 40 percent beds as Intensive Care Units. Of the designated 40 percent; 25 percent should have ventilators, 25 percent should have High Flow Nasal Cannula and 50 percent of the 40 per cent reserved beds should have BiPAP machines. This should be made compulsorily for all the nursing homes/ hospitals in the State of Uttar Pradesh. Every nursing home/ hospital which has more than 30 beds should compulsorily have an oxygen production plant. In the State of Uttar Pradesh, we find that apart from various Institutes like Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute and the Universities like the King George’s Medical University and Banaras Hindu University, we have five more medical colleges in Prayagraj, Agra, Meerut, Kanpur and Gorakhpur. These Colleges should have enhanced facilities as are there with the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute within a period of four months. Emergency laws should be applied for the acquisition of land for them. Funds should be provided to them forthwith so that they graduate from a medical college to an Institute of the standard of the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute. For this there should also be given a certain extent of autonomy. Regarding the medical infrastructure in villages and small urban towns, the Court said that they should be given all kinds of pathology facilities and treatments should be made available in Community Health Centres which are at par to the treatment given by Level-2 hospitals in bigger cities. Importantly, the Court said, “If a patient however becomes serious in the rural areas or in small towns then ambulances with all kinds of Intensive Care Unit facilities should be provided so that the patient can be brought to a hospital which has proper medical facilities in a bigger town.” Other measures suggested by the Court Every B Grade and C Grade town of the State of Uttar Pradesh should be provided with at least 20 ambulances and every village should be provided with at 14 least 2 ambulances having Intensive Care Unit facilities. Ambulances should be made available within a period of one month. With these ambulances’ patients from smaller towns and villages can be brought to bigger hospitals in bigger towns. Importantly, the Court asked the Government to not linger this matter and by the next date come up with a definite report as to how this upgradation of Medical Colleges shall be done in four months’ time. Lastly, the Court directed the appointment of Nodal Officers by the District Judges of districts Bijnor, Bahraich, Barabanki, Shrawasti, Jaunpur, Mainpuri, Mau, Aligarh, Etah, Etawah, Firozabad, and Deoria in terms of its order dated 27.04.2021. The Court has asked them to submit their reports within a week’s time in the light of directions contained in its order dated 27.04.2021. The State respondents have also been directed to give the details relating to the above districts in terms of our order dated 11.05.2021.

Do you want to avoid the fate of the Target CIO?

first_img 12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Robin Remines Robin Remines brings an exciting combination of strategic vision and tactical finis to the OGO Executive team. Prior to joining Ongoing Operations, Ms. Remines served as Vice President, Information Technology … Web: ongoingoperations.com Details Let’s face it – the job of the CIO isn’t getting any easier and to add more pressure onto the plate we are seeing more and more “voluntary resignations” in the aftermath of security breaches like Target.  The retail giant made headlines after announcing that 110 million Americans were effected by a massive breach of it’s systems.The resignation of the CIO followed shortly thereafter.  Fair? Hard to know what their internal dialogue was but loss of corporate data may just have become THE most serious threat to a credit union today!Systems can be replaced and buildings rebuilt but the confidence and trust your members have in you may not be replaceable. Not to mention that cost of the breach, especially if not covered could cost your credit union everything.No plan (system or network) is fail proof but there are lessons learned that can help strengthen your security position:Go beyond compliance – Being compliant does not mean your credit union is secure. Credit unions should go beyond minimum compliance standards and undergo a variety of penetration tests several times a year.Educate your C-level (and Board) – The responsibility of a breach has become personal with jobs being lost and accountability directed at leadership and boards. The C-team and Board need to insist on gaining a deeper knowledge of the threats and mitigation strategies.Know your logs – Knowing how to manage and read your event logs is crucial to IT security. Today’s credit union CIO is deluged with log reports from firewalls, data leak prevention devices, IDS/IPS and ant-virus/spam scans. How are you keeping up with them? Most credit union’s don’t have a dedicated Information Security Office (ISO), which brings me to my next point.Hire A CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) – Establishing an Information Security position – someone whose sole job is to monitor the security position of the credit union – should be high on the priority list for credit unions. Not only does it help to relieve the burden of the CIO but establishes a much needed separation of duties.  It also shows the rest of the credit union that Information Security is serious business.Create an Incident Response Plan – Credit unions are required to have incident response plans and many do. The problem is that they are rarely tested to determine their effectiveness.When a breach occurs – ALL energy goes to fixing the breach and stopping the bleeding.  And while this is definitely important for your technical team ) many times the communications plans are after thoughts.  What you tell your members and when you tell them can be just as important as securing your data.Secure outside help – A huge mistake that many credit unions make is assuming they can handle the event themselves.Not only is this lacking the recognition of how quickly these attacks can spread their resources thin but also doesn’t protect the credit union from the ultimate insider threat – a rogue IT person.Account for Johari’s Window Quadrant 4  – What you Don’t Know You Don’t Know. – I’ve read the Target breach began with an HVAC contractor accessing a wireless network inside the corporate network. Where aren’t you looking or suspecting? Vendor access? Insider threat? Simple loss of a corporate cell phone or laptop.Ultimately as a credit union CIO, your job is secure the infrastructure and lock up the data.  Using the steps above to map out a deliberate security strategy that is prioritized at the highest level. And while no system/network is 100% fault proof, knowledge is power! Without it, we stay behind the vulnerability curve forever.last_img read more

5 things to do when you’re stuck in a rut

first_imgNo matter what it is that’s got you down, when you’re stuck in a rut it can be extremely difficult to be motivated or inspired. If you find yourself in a rut, here are a few ideas for getting yourself going in the right direction again.Hit the gym: A good workout can do as much for your brain as it does for your body. Working up a good sweat and getting your blood pumping may be just what you need to get out of the slump you’re in. Pop in your headphones, put on some feel-good music, get your heart racing, and let your thoughts transform.Get uncomfortable: Every once in a while, you need to mix it up. Breaking your routine can lead to new and creative ideas. Maybe you don’t love going to the gym early in the morning, but changing up your schedule may help get those creative juices flowing again.Avoid being alone: When you’re in a rut, you may have the same unproductive thoughts circling round and round in your head. Spend some time with those friends and family members who support you. It’s never a bad idea to have someone to bounce ideas and thoughts off of.Check out: Sometimes, your brain needs to refocus. The easiest way to do this is to give your mind a break from its current thoughts. Head to the Barnes and Noble or Redbox near you and find a book or movie to transport you to another world. When you come back to reality, you may find your brain is working the way you want it to again.Mix it up: For me, there’s nothing better than changing it up. Get away from your desk. Go work at an outside table or a window seat somewhere. Rearrange all of the furniture in your living room. Let more sunlight flood your space. Changing your view is a great way to be inspired when you’re feeling less than creative. 42SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.
