On this extension to a 1930s semi-detached house in the suburbs of Dublin, our clients were interested in forming a new room that was a continuation of the gentle formality of the main house; rather than extend with a scaleless, rootless annex. The existing kitchen was positioned, as was typical of the time, in a utilitarian dark north-west corner of the original house, with windows onto a dark side passageway set a metre above the garden.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Fionn McCannOur objective was to reposition the kitchen in a manner that reflected its centrality to family life without forming a rupture between the work we added and the house we had been gifted with. Previously, the entrance hallway was cluttered with provisional storage and coat stands that offered an ad-hoc atmosphere that only served to devalue its centrality to the home.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannWe enhanced its stature by relocating storage and lining the walls with a wainscotting formed with simple inch-wide painted poplar beads, extending the central axis of the house through an oak lined lobby, concealing a mirrored wet bar, with a bright white terrazzo floor. In the view ahead, three terrazzo steps lead down to a generously sized dining room and kitchen. The view to the garden overlooks a circular dining area wrapped with sweeping curved glass.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannThe curved form creates a calm captured space, removed from the foot traffic of people passing through to the garden, and was inspired by the Victorian glass conservatories at Ballyfin and Dunfillan of Richard Turner, the Irish born Iron Founder and creator of the Palm houses in Kew Gardens and Belfast Botanic Gardens. The extension faces east, so to allow sunlight to reach deep into the room long, high clerestory windows bring in sunlight until mid-afternoon, and open to exhaust warm air in summer.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannExternally, forest green slender metalwork supporting gutters and concealing downpipes adds an enrichment and delicacy in a manner similarly deployed to the external joinery on the front façade fascias and bay windows of the 1930s original house. Inside new oak joinery to a bespoke design conceals all the appliances, pantry and utility door in an extension of the oak cabinetry in the lobby, while the same white terrazzo forms work surfaces and protective wall linings. In replanning the home, the kitchen is now at the heart of family life whilst the original house is renewed and given space to breathe and be valued.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Precarious State of the Mom-and-Pop StoreArticlesHarlem Artist Studio / SO-ILSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959386/churchtown-house-extension-scullion-architects Clipboard Architects: Scullion Architects Area Area of this architecture project Churchtown House Extension / Scullion Architects “COPY” Area:  300 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Fionn McCann Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2021 CopyAbout this officeScullion ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionDublinOn FacebookIrelandPublished on April 02, 2021Cite: “Churchtown House Extension / Scullion Architects” 02 Apr 2021.

Fundraising sector now a leading advertiser of VR roles

first_img Tagged with: charity jobs in kent research virtual reality Advertisement  113 total views,  1 views today Fundraising sector now a leading advertiser of VR roles An analysis of the virtual reality job market shows that vacancies are up with the fundraising sector advertising almost 1 in every 10.Job search platform Joblift analysed the UK’s virtual (or augmented) reality job market and recorded an average monthly increase of 6% in vacancies – double the 3% increase seen in the UK’s job market as a whole. According to Joblift, 10,162 virtual reality job vacancies have been posted in the UK in the last 24 months. These positions have increased by 6% on average each month and while web developers and programmers were the most in-demand, with a quarter of all job postings advertising these roles, in second place fundraisers were advertised in 7% of postings, with job listings highlighting the use of virtual reality technology in street and door-to-door campaigning. Researchers followed with 4%, and with 3% of all vacancies, business development managers ranked in fourth. Interns rounded off the top five, accounting for 1% of all vacancies.Greenpeace, Oxfam, Cancer Research UK, MSF, and Alzheimer’s Society were the top five employers in the sector with the industry responsible for advertising 8% of all VR jobs. The research sector ranked in fourth place, with universities, schools and colleges advertising 7% of all VR positions in the last two years. Rounding off the top five, the finance sector advertised 6% of all augmented reality roles. However, according to Jobsite, despite the increase in vacancies, positions in the fundraising sector take longer to fill. The average VR charity job spent 45 days online before being filled, 10 days longer than the average time VR jobs were closed in other sectors.

Freedom of information assessed in embattled Thailand

first_img ThailandAsia – Pacific May 12, 2021 Find out more Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom RSF_en News Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years ThailandAsia – Pacific News December 9, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Freedom of information assessed in embattled Thailand August 21, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Thailand News News Forty years after a student uprising toppled a military dictatorship, the Thai media are able to criticize the government. The leading English-language dailies, The Nation and Bangkok Post, and the Thai-language Daily News, Kom Chad Luek, ThaiRath, Matichon and Khaosod Daily are free to speak their mind on every subject bar one, the king and the royal family.Like the protesters who showed their respect for King Bhumipol by observing a truce on his birthday last week, most journalists display a similar respect for the monarchy.During a 2006 coup, the military seized control of TV stations in order to announce a regime change. Political instability ever since then has been the main cause of the threats to Thai and foreign journalists and Thailand’s fall in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index to its current position of 135th out of 179 countries.The safety of journalists is also threatened in the south of the country by Islamist rebels who carry out bombings.As a result of Thai society’s extreme polarization, most of the leading political events in recent years have had a big impact on the media, which are ensnared in a power struggle between the two main political coalitions.The Bangkok headquarters of ASTV, a satellite TV station owned by one of the leaders of the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD), also known as the Yellow Shirts, was the target of gunshots and grenades in November 2008. At the same time, a pro-government radio station was attacked and, in Chiang Mai, a pro-opposition radio host was gunned down.Clashes between the army and the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD), also known as the Red Shirts, in Bangkok in 2010 led to the shooting deaths of Hiroyuki Muramoto, a Japanese cameraman working for Reuters, on 10 April 2010, and Italian photo-journalist Fabio Polenghi, during an army assault on protesters on 19 May 2010.Two months after the Red Shirt opposition’s victory in the July 2011 elections, Channel 7 TV journalist Somjit Nawakruasunthorn was the victim of a Red Shirt campaign of intimidation.Last month, protests in Bangkok against a proposed amnesty for Thaksin Shinawatra, a former prime minister now living in self-exile, degenerated into violence against news media accused of biased coverage of the protests.Protesters surrounded vehicles owned by Channel 3 and Channel 7 and invaded the offices of several media. On 25 November, German freelance journalist Nick Nostitz only just escaped a mob egged on by a protest leader, who accused Nostitz of being a “Red Shirt” government supporter.The threat of lawsuits and prosecution compounds the physical dangers. Journalists take great care with their political reporting to avoid judicial reprisals from either government officials or opposition representatives. In May 2011, the authorities raided ten community radio stations in the Bangkok region that were linked to the Red Shirts.The threat of a lèse-majesté charge under article 112 of the penal code is used by the authorities to gag the most outspoken media. Any citizen can file a complaint accusing someone of an article 112 violation and the authorities are required to investigate all such complaints. According to this article, “anyone defaming, insulting or threatening the king, the queen, the crown prince or the regent” is guilty of lèse-majesté.A Bangkok court’s recent decision to uphold a suspended prison sentence for Chiranuch Premchaiporn, the editor of the online newspaper Prachatai, for comments critical of the monarchy posted by visitors to her site has set a disturbing precedent. Those who host online content can now be held directly responsible for what is posted by third parties.The 11-year jail sentence that Somyot Prueksakasemsuk, editor of the bi-monthly Voice of Thaksin, received in January 2013 has had a deterrent effect on the entire national press.The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), a body created in December 2010 to regulate the broadcast media and telecommunications sector, is having to deal with many questions raised about it methods and transparency, and has yet to contribute to the debate about article 112.Independent bloggers are also exposed to the threat of lèse-majesté charges. With nearly a third of the population connected to the Internet, the Thai blogosphere is not only very active but also subject to close scrutiny, especially content linked to the monarchy.The justice ministry created a “cyber scout” unit to track down “illicit” online content in late 2010 and between 80,000 and 400,000 URLs had reportedly been blocked by January 2011. Alternative news sites suspected of supporting the Red Shirts were often censored and criticism of the government in a blog often led to lèse-majesté accusations.With a conviction rate in lèse-majesté prosecutions still running at around 95 per cent, everything suggests that the authorities intend to continue using this weapon. In fact, the ministry of information and communication technologies said in October that it wanted to amend the lèse-majesté law so that the authorities could block sites without having to refer to a judge.As the current protests continue to grow in intensity despite Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s announcement of parliament’s dissolution, journalists are increasingly exposed to both angry demonstrators and security forces that could at any moment decide that it is time to end the protests.Reporters Without Borders urges the security forces and protesters not to target journalists and media workers, regardless of the political position of the media employing them. Organisation Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar to go further Amid continuing turmoil and opposition protests that often target news media, Reporters Without Borders has compiled the following assessment of the state of media freedom in Thailand and the threats to its news providers.

It has also ordered that there should be constant surveillance of the police on all roads, from at least 07:00 AM to 10:00 PM. The order has been passed by a Division Bench comprising of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar to curb a second wave of Covid-19 in the State. It said, “we find the only way to succeed is to wear masks, which is required to be worn by one and all. In this context, it would be in the fitness of things that every road should have a constant surveillance of the police from at least 07:00 AM to 10:00 PM.” To this end, the Court has instructed: For roads which are busy and have a length of 2 km or more, a team of police personnel may be deployed and if it is a 2 km road which is not all that crowded then a minimum 2 police personnel must be deployed so that the constant vigil be kept.This much is sure that a surveillance on every road/ lane/ bye-lane and gali has to be maintained. The Task Force should be empowered to stop people and ask them to wear masks.If any individual misbehaves with the Task Force inappropriately then the Task Force would have enough powers to take appropriate action against that individual. For now, these plans shall be implemented in the cities of Prayagraj, Kanpur, Varanasi, Agra and Lucknow and thereafter it may be followed in other districts of UP. Inter alia, the Court issued instructions for: Fogging and sanitizationRemoval of encroachment and re-encroachment in PrayagrajIdentification of vending zones for displaced hawkersParking menace (Previous orders on these aspects may be accessed Here and Here) Notably, an intervention application was filed by one Ramanuj Tiwari, urging that the cantonment roads be not closed for the general public. While perusing the same, the Bench remarked, “Various reasons have been given in support of prohibitory orders for ingress and egress of the common people but they are all such reasons which were there before the lockdown was imposed. Today, the lockdown is over and we have now entered the stage of ‘Unlock-5’. The people at large are as much having the threat of the virus as the Cantonment/Army personnel are having.” However, before passing any order on this aspect, the Court has called for copies of the specific directions/orders issued by the Defence Ministry.
