The two dwellings are connected by a “bridged” living space, providing continuity of the outdoor space.Save this picture!Floor PlanLocated in a quiet space near a local primary school, the concept for this dwelling started with a dual yard layout, the front for guest parking and an aesthetically prioritised garden at the rear. To effectively use the large amount of outdoor space, we divided the land into two areas, a western garden facing the road and a southern garden which has good sun coverage. The bridged living space serves as a suspended partition between both areas, while also functioning as a carport.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoConnecting both gardens allows for optimal utilisation, such as camping in the backyard while using the bridged living space as a roof for a barbeque, or accommodating the cards of guests. Save this picture!Floor PlanWe designed the interior according to the wishes of the occupants, who are both engaged professionally and wanted a design which minimised housework. As a result, the house features a central stair room, in which all rooms are easily accessible and results in the block based façade. The design also facilitates sun access to every room and effective ventilation. Each room also has visual access to the garden, allowing the occupants to feel the changes of each season.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoProject gallerySee allShow lessSnøhetta Chosen to Design Le Monde Headquarters in ParisArchitecture NewsThrough the Lens: The Social Implications of Green Roofs in FilmArticles Share Save this picture!© Kei Sugino+ 11 Share Year:  Bridged Living Space / TT ArchitectsSave this projectSaveBridged Living Space / TT Architects “COPY” Area:  92 m² Area:  92 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Laughter increases altruism, says psychologists’ study

first_imgProfessor van Vugt, a member of Kent’s Centre for the Study of Group Processes and an expert on human altruism and co-operation said: “This study may have important implications for the way charities or organisations could increase the level of received donations.“From the perspective of increasing altruism in society, it is obvious that laughter deserves serious attention from both scientists and policy makers.” You can read the full results of the study – ‘Laughter as Social Lubricant: A Biosocial Hypothesis about the Pro-social Functions of Laughter and Humour’. Howard Lake | 14 March 2007 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A new study from psychologists at the universities of Kent and Liverpool has revealed that laughter increases altruism towards strangers. The findings, released ahead of Friday’s comedy fundraising telethon for Comic Relief, “may have important implications for charities and other fundraising bodies”.For the study, participants watched a funny or serious video clip before playing an altruistic game with strangers. The study revealed that after watching the funny clip subjects who laughed a lot were more likely to give their money to strangers. Further research suggests that this may be due to the effects of laughter on endorphins, naturally produced neurotransmitters that improve people’s mood.The study, conducted by Professor Mark van Vugt, Charlie Hardy, Julie Stow and Professor Robin Dunbar (University of Liverpool), was designed to examine if laughter acts as a social lubricant by enhancing a sense of group identity among strangers.

U.S. terrorism comes from the right

first_imgThe capitalist media would have the people of this country believe that the main terrorist threat in the United States comes from terrorist attacks carried out by Muslims.But a June 16 op-ed piece in the New York Times revealed that “headlines can mislead. The main terrorist threat in the United States is not from violent Muslim extremists, but from right-wing extremists. Just ask the police.”This usually buried fact comes from a 2014 survey conducted by the writers of the opinion piece with 382 law enforcement agencies of the Police Executive Research Forum.The police themselves document that it is not Muslims who are the big threat, but right-wing anti-government extremists, the overwhelming majority of them white men. Over 70 percent of the police surveyed report that anti-government extremism is one of the top three terrorist threats in their jurisdiction. In addition, only 3 percent of the police surveyed identified the threat from Muslim extremists as severe.The study continued: “An officer from a large metropolitan area said that ‘militias, neo-Nazis and sovereign citizens’ are the biggest threat we face in regard to extremism. One officer explained that he ranked the right-wing threat higher because ‘it is an emerging threat that we don’t have as good of a grip on, even with our intelligence unit, as we do with the Al Shabab/Al Qaeda issue, which we have been dealing with for some time.’ An officer on the West Coast explained that the ‘sovereign citizen’ anti-government threat has ‘really taken off,’ whereas terrorism by American Muslims is something ‘we just haven’t experienced yet.’”So there you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth: the real terrorists are not that racist image of Muslims promoted by Hollywood but rather white, racist, right-wing men.This opinion piece is limited, however. It ignores the other blatant terrorists in our midst: the unbridled wrath of police in the oppressed communities, for example, who wage war with impunity against people of color. And then there is the terrorism of the Pentagon that has for decades carried out horrific crimes against the peoples of the world, also mostly with impunity.However, this well-documented exposé about the terrorists in our midst is important to know about in the wake of the heinous racist assassination of nine Black people carried out by Dylann Roof in Charleston, S.C.After Roof was captured, information came out about his worldview. He had posted a 2,000-word manifesto on his website where he identified himself as a “white nationalist.” He stated that he was “truly awakened” to his beliefs after reading material from the Council of Conservative Citizens, an infamous racist so-called hate group.“I have no choice,” he wrote. “Someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.”Roof is one of those extremists that the June op-ed article refers to, one of those white men shaped by racist websites that more and more promote a “white nationalist” agenda.The Southern Poverty Law Center, which for decades has monitored and exposed “hate groups” and other extremists throughout the U.S., reports that “currently, there are 784 known hate groups operating across the country, including neo-Nazis, Klansmen, white nationalists, neo-Confederates, racist skinheads, border vigilantes and others.”The SPLC, however, erroneously throws Black separatist groups into that mix. This is false, as the reaction of the oppressed to their oppressors is never equal to that of racism and white supremacy.Nonetheless, “since 2000,” the SPLC states, “the number of hate groups has increased by 30 percent.”They write that “this surge has been fueled by anger and fear over the nation’s ailing economy, an influx of nonwhite immigrants, and the diminishing white majority, as symbolized by the election of the nation’s first African-American president.”The SPLC has determined that there is actually a “powerful resurgence of the anti-government Patriot movement” that was behind the Oklahoma City bombing. According to their studies, “the number of Patriot groups, including armed militias, skyrocketed following the election of President Obama in 2008 — rising 813 percent, from 149 groups in 2008 to an all-time high of 1,360 in 2012. The number fell to 874 in 2014.”Dylan Roof’s horrible racist crime did not occur in a vacuum. A significant portion of the superrich in this country are very fearful of the rising popular movements against low wages, racism, sexism, anti-LGBTQ bigotry and police brutality. They are throwing huge amounts of money behind right-wing politicians and media whose agenda is divide and conquer. Some of it trickles down to the far-right extremists and also feeds their paranoia and hate.The source of this fear, instability and hatred — capitalism — must be abolished in order to root out the right-wing ilk.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Sentiment Falls as Producers Express Concerns About Ag Exports

first_img 1 of 3 Sentiment Falls as Producers Express Concerns About Ag Exports Previous articleUSDA Reopens Enrollment for Improved Dairy Safety Net ToolNext articleAg Bankers Report Shows Increase in Lending Eric Pfeiffer SHARE Producers’ rating the likelihood of a U.S. withdraw from NAFTA, March 2018. Purdue/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer, October 2015-March 2018. The Purdue/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer slipped to 135 in March, down 5 points compared to February. The decline in the sentiment index, which is based upon a monthly a survey of 400 agricultural producers from across the U.S, can be attributed to the possibility of a trade war erupting.Dr. Jim Mintert, director of Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture, and an ag economist, said, “I think farmers are clearly aware of the importance of trade to agriculture in general, and in particular the impact it could have on livestock producers. I think our results this month suggest that they’re very aware of that, and I think that’s, at least partially, the reason why we saw a bit of a downturn.”With China placing significant tariffs on U.S. pork, ethanol, and other ag products, is it possible that we’re already in a trade war with China? And if not, when will we know that we are in one? Mintert says that’s a good question.“I don’t know if I’d call it a trade war, but it’s definitely a trade tiff at this point. The reason I didn’t go ahead and call it a trade war is because, if you look at the response China made, it was a rather measured response. They were fairly careful in terms of what they targeted. Both in terms of the commodities, and especially the dollar amount. They targeted the dollar amount that was very close to the dollar amount that the US was targeting with the tariffs on our side. So, more of a trade battle, perhaps, than a trade war.”Mintert noted that it’s important to compare these reports over time. Even though producer sentiment dipped in this report, “There’s still more of a positive aspect, or more of a positive perspective, on what’s taking place in US agriculture on our surveys than what we saw prior to the November 2016 election. So, that means people are still retaining some of that optimism. Some of that’s about the future; some of that’s actually about current conditions.”You can read the full report here.

Protection of journalists’ sources threatened

first_img Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en to go further In the past several weeks, Mexican justice officials have questioned seven journalists over their sources. “When journalists are forced to reveal their sources, no one will confide in them. This puts at risk the right of society to be informed,” said RSF Secretary General Robert Ménard in a letter to Mexican President Vicente Fox Quesada. “The principle of the protection of sources is the only guarantee of an independent investigative journalism, which is indispensable for transparency in public life,” he added.RSF also expressed “shock” over comments that President Fox made during a 15 November 2002 meeting in Paris with various human rights organisations, in which RSF participated. Among other things, Fox declared that there was no reason not to prosecute journalists who publish information obtained illegally. RSF called on the president to ensure that his country’s Criminal Procedure Code include an article protecting the secrecy of sources.On 3 December, Daniel Moreno, a journalist and news director for the daily “El Universal”, was summoned to appear in court and reveal his sources for an article published on 16 June. Moreno refused to do so, basing his decision on his right to protect his sources. The article in question concerned a corruption scandal in the public petroleum company Pemex. Following the article’s publication, authorities decided to launch an investigation, stating that some of the information, which was classified, could only have been obtained through unauthorised means. On 3 December, the attorney general explained that the objective of the investigation was not to attack journalists but rather to take measures against officials who give the media classified information.On 18 November, journalists Enrique Méndez, Gustavo Castillo, Rubén Villalpando, Andrea Becerril, Ciro Pérez and Roberto Garduño were summoned in connection with a number of articles published in January on the same corruption case. The six reporters of the daily “La Jornada” refused to disclose their sources even though they were pressured to do so by the attorney general. They subséquent filed a complaint before the National Human Rights Commission (Comisión Nacional de Derechos Humanos, CNDH).In a press release, CNDH President José Luis Soberanes affirmed that, “it is the right and, at the same time, obligation of journalists to maintain professional secrecy and to refuse to reveal their sources, as is done by other professionals, such as doctors and lawyers.” The CNDH emphasised that the continual summons of journalists “has an intimidating and inhibiting effect on those who inform.”RSF called on President Fox to have the following article included in theCriminal Procedure Code:”All journalists have the right to maintain the confidentiality of their sources of information. Any journalist who is questioned about information collected in the course of his work will not reveal its origin and no one will be able to adopt measures to force him to do so.” December 10, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Protection of journalists’ sources threatened MexicoAmericas Organisation center_img Follow the news on Mexico MexicoAmericas News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say May 5, 2021 Find out more News Reports News Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Warning issued after protected Bluefin Tuna targeted in Donegal

first_img Previous articleDonegal Senator blasts Government proposals for grandparent grantNext articleDonegal Tourism to embark on American trade mission News Highland Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens further The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority is reminding recreational and sports fishing operators that it is illegal to target Bluefin Tuna.The warning comes following the catching, towing and landing of the protected Bluefin Tuna in Teelin, Co. Donegal over the weekend.The SFPA say, based on information provided by members of the angling community, a privately owned pleasure boat was met on arrival in Teelin by Sea Fisheries Protection Officers and a file is being prepared for submission to the Director of Public Prosecutions.Statement in Full:The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), is notifying all operators involved in recreational or sports fishing that seek to target Bluefin tuna that these fish are specifically protected under Irish law due to European conservations measures and it is illegal to catch, land or sell this fish. The SFPA is also reminding recreational fishing businesses that it is illegal to advertise fishing/charter trips targeting Bluefin tuna.The warning follows the catching, towing and landing of a Bluefin Tuna in Teelin, Co. Donegal over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Based on information provided by members of the angling community a privately owned pleasure boat was met on arrival in Teelin by SFPA Sea Fisheries Protection Officers and a file is being prepared for submission to the Director of Public Prosecutions. A number of other similar incidents are currently under investigation.The species, which is under-threat globally due to over-fishing, can typically visit Irish waters during the late summer and autumn. While some EU member states issue permit the fishing of Bluefin tuna in their waters, any Bluefin tuna caught must be accounted for from that Member State’s national quota.  Ireland does not have a quota for Bluefin tuna, thus negating any access to these fish via sport fishing or any reactional fishing activity.Susan Steele, Chair of the SPFA said, “This prohibition on the fishing for Bluefin Tuna applies to commercial fishermen as well as to recreational and sporting fishermen. It is illegal to deliberately target Bluefin tuna and any fisher who happens to catch one must release it to the sea and desist from fishing in that area.” By News Highland – August 8, 2018 Homepage BannerNews Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Google+ Google+center_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest Facebook Warning issued after protected Bluefin Tuna targeted in Donegal Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Pinterest WhatsApp Facebooklast_img read more
