House Van Colen at Wingene / Compagnie O Architects

This is a house for mister Van Colen, a busy vet and homebuilder at the same time. It is located in Wingene, a typical West-Flemish country town. The building plot adjoins a spit of valuable agricultural land. The street forms the winter bed of this natural landscape and is therefore situated higher than the actual plot.Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreIt is a typical Flemish reflex to elevate ones private parcel. The landscape towards the street is, in that way, reshaped into a chain of little artificial hills, each carrying a private dwelling. Every man for himself, God for us all. Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseThe “Van Colen” house, however, deviates from this over-all principle because it is inserted onto the natural ground level, lower than the street. This attitude disassociates the house immediately from its neighbors and thus, the average way of building/ architectural stereotype in the Flemish countryside. Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseThe preservation of the existing topography is a first and clear design-guideline. It leads directly to a different planning of the program of this dwelling: the living-area is situated on the first floor, the bedrooms are located on the ground floor with immediate access to the garden and fields. If you look at it from the street, most of the living takes place at a “bel-étage”. A (not yet constructed) bridge/walkway connects the street and living area. Thanks to the principle of the “bel étage”, the kitchen and living room have a panoramic view on the surrounding meadows. Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseThe second design-guideline introduces the well-known Flemish stable typology: an industrial ready-made steel structure built in no time. Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseUnder this stack, the homebuilder has organized his own dwelling, building the rooms brick by brick. Save this picture!ground floor planThis way of working stretches the building-period for sure. However, we prefer the commitment of this homebuilder, which is intriguing to watch, rather than a “normal” building-process, regardless of the pure aesthetic consequences. The house is by definition never finished. This is DIY nest building.

European satellite operator Eutelsat suppresses independent Chinese-language TV station NTDTV to satisfy Beijing / 卫星电视公司Eutelsat 献媚中国政府,停播华语电视台NTDTV

ChinaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News News News Receive email alerts June 2, 2021 Find out more July 10, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 European satellite operator Eutelsat suppresses independent Chinese-language TV station NTDTV to satisfy Beijing / 卫星电视公司Eutelsat 献媚中国政府,停播华语电视台NTDTV March 12, 2021 Find out more Related documents Transcript EutelsatPDF – 461.76 KB China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Reporters Without Borders calls on Giuliano Berretta, the CEO of the European satellite company Eutelsat, to quickly reverse its decision to suspend independent Chinese-language broadcaster NTDTV’s use of Eutelsat’s W5 satellite to broadcast to Asia.Eutelsat claims it was forced to suspend NTDTV (New Tang Dynasty Television) on 16 June because of a technical problem but a recorded conversation with an employee of Eutelsat show it was a premeditated, politically-motivated decision violating the free flow of information and the convention under which Eutelsat operates.“The real reason for the decision to suppress NTDTV exposes how Eutelsat operates in China,” the press freedom organisation said. “The company’s credibility is at stake and we urge its shareholders to intervene as quickly as possible so that NTDTV can resume broadcasting on this satellite. If that is not done, none of the TV companies that are Eutelsat clients will ever be sure they could not also be arbitrarily disconnected one day because of their content.”Reporters Without Borders added: “NTDTV’s broadcasts irked the Chinese government because, thanks to this satellite, they could be freely received in tens of millions of Chinese homes. Their suspension just a few weeks ahead of the Olympic Games looks like a favour provided by Eutelsat with the aim of obtaining new deals. Eutelsat tried to drop NTDTV once before, in 2005, but an international campaign forced it to sign a new long term contract.”In a recorded conversation on 23 June with an interlocutor the employee thought was a Chinese Propaganda Department official, a Eutelsat representative in Beijing said:“It was our company’s CEO in France who decided to stop NTDTV’s signal. (…)We could have turned off any of the transponders. (…) It was because we got repeated complaints and reminder from the Chinese government. (…) Two years ago, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television kept saying the same thing over and over: ‘Stop that TV station before we begin to talk.’Reporters Without Borders is posting a transcript of this conversation on its website (www.rsf.org) and it has an audio recording that is available to the media.A New York-based TV station with links to the Falun Gong spiritual movement, NTDTV began broadcasting in Chinese four years ago. Its programmes are very different from the content on China’s state TV stations. There is a great deal of coverage of human rights issues, including the repression in Tibet and of religious groups such as Falungong and the underground Christian churches.The day after it stopped transmitting NTDTV, Eutelsat issued a statement saying the W5 satellite has suffered serious technical problems that had forced the company to reduce the number of transponders and stop broadcasting several TV stations.Eutelsat and Thales, the French company that made the satellite, are doing more and more business in China. It was Thales that manufactured Zhongxing-9, the satellite that was put in orbit last month to guarantee good coverage of the Olympic Games. Eutelsat has signed a contract with China to use its Long March rocket to launch Eutelsat satellites. The Wall Street Journal wrote in April: “Eutelsat for years has been trying to find a way to penetrate the Chinese market, and launch contracts are widely seen as one way to help reach that goal.”As a company headquartered in France, Eutelsat is nonetheless obliged to respect the principles of equality of access, pluralism and non-discrimination enshrined in article 3 of a convention governing the operations of satellite companies.Ever since NTDTV was launched in February 2002, the Chinese government has been trying to get its broadcasts suppressed by pressuring satellite operators and governments. RSF_en to go further Follow the news on China ————-据最新的材料显示,一名Eutelsat负责人承认这是一个政治决策欧洲公司Eutelsat 总裁Giuliano Berretta决定暂时停播卫星W5面向亚洲的华语电视台NTDTV,记者无国界希望Giuliano Berretta撤销该决定。Eutelsat谎称由于技术问题而停播该台,但从与该公司一位负责人谈话录音上可以看出,这一举动是有计划的政治决定。该决定违反了Eutelsat公约第三条,阻碍了新闻的自由流通。记者无国界称,“停播NTDTV电视台的真正原因已经十分明显,不过是为了在中国市场的长远利益。这一决定关系到Eutelsat公司的诚信度,我们希望公司的投资商能够尽快行动,让NTDTV华语电视台重新回到卫星电视中来。否则,依此逻辑,Eutelsat公司的任何电视台客户都有可能因为播放的内容而被强行停播。” 另外,记者无国界对此事评论,“在距奥运会开幕几周的时间里,能够被一千多万中国家庭接收的NTDTV电视台惹恼了中国政府,Eutelsat为了中国市场而停播该电视台。2005年,Eutelsat就曾试图停播NTDTV电视台,但由于遭到国际社会的一致反对而作罢。” 2008年6月23日,一位Eutelsat在北京的负责人和一名冒名在中国宣传部门工作的记者的对话录音揭示了停播真相,“停播是我们法国公司总裁命令,当然,我们也可以继续播放NTDTV的节目。不过,中国政府方面早就表明态度。两年前,中国广播电影电视总局就坚持说,‘在开始一切谈判之前,先停掉这个台(NTDTV)。’” 记者无国界在网站上 HYPERLINK “http://www.rsf.org” www.rsf.org 列出了该对话的全部内容,并欢迎媒体对该对话录音。 2008年6月16日,和法轮功关系密切的NTDTV电视台被Eutelsat停播。四年来,NTDTV播出了大量与中国官方电视台论调截然不同的节目,其中包括许多有关人权的问题,尤其是在西藏的镇压活动,对法轮功、基督教等宗教活动的巨大阻力。在6月17日的一片声明中,Eutelsat称W5卫星遇到很大的技术故障,不得不停止播放某些电视台的节目。” Eutelsat和Thales公司是W5卫星的制造商,在中国有很大的商业利益。Thales制造的“中兴9号”卫星为了奥运会的顺利转播,在六月份进入轨道。Eutelsat与中国政府签订合约,在该公司发射卫星时使用“长征”火箭。正如《华尔街日报》写的那样,“Eutelsat几年来绞尽脑汁打入中国市场,该合约的签订是走向成功的一条途径。” 不过,Eutelsat要遵守各个电视台公平使用卫星的条约,受法国法律约束的Eutelsat公司公约第三条明确标明了这一条款。自从2002年NTDTV电视台正式开播以来,中国政府已为该台向几家卫星电视公司施加压力。 last_img read more

Replace old batteries with fresh, high quality batteries to keep your Smoke Alarms ready to protect you all year-long. Make sure your emergency flashlights work when you need them by using fresh high-quality batteries.Check Your Smoke Alarms! After inserting fresh batteries in your Smoke Alarm, make sure the Alarm is working by activating the safety test button. The Fire Department recommends that you test all of your Smoke Alarms at least once each month. If you have any doubt regarding the working condition of a Smoke Alarm, replace it. Replace your Smoke Alarms with new devices every 10 years.Count Your Smoke Alarms! A properly functioning Smoke Alarm should be placed in every sleeping room -and- in the hallway directly adjacent to those rooms. If sleeping rooms are on an upper level, a Smoke Alarm should be installed in the center of the ceiling directly above the interior stairway.Clean Your Smoke Alarms! Gently use a vacuum cleaner once a month to remove dust and cobwebs. If your Smoke Alarms have been accidentally painted or contaminated, replacement may be necessary.The Fire Department encourages you to practice your escape plans with your children because they are at increased risk of dying in a home fire since they often become scared and confused when a fire erupts. Make sure your children recognize the sound of your home’s Smoke Alarm and teach them to respond instinctively to its signal. Create at least two different escape routes from every room and practice them with the entire family.For further information regarding fire prevention please call (626) 744-4655.last_img read more

Goodlord! Half of agents support letting fees ban, claims proptech firm

No Comments

first_imgNearly half of all agents across the UK are in favour of the government’s letting fees ban announced in the recent Queen’s Speech.The claim is being made by lettings and tenancy management platform Goodlord, which says 49% of the 130 letting agents it quizzed were in favour of a ban on admin fees.Some 48% wanted a cap on the size of deposits, a measure also mentioned during the opening of parliament.And a similar proportion of agents also though it a cap on rent rises would be a good idea while 64% of London agents believe the government should build more social housing, although only 54% of those outside the capital believe this.Goodlord says that agents think the sector needs reforming and that overall it is “inefficient” and “lacks transparency” and is often unfair to tenants, the research revealed, and only 42% of the agents though tenants really understand how renting a home works.Moving costsThe proptech company says the agents were also “broadly supportive” of ending the current system of landlords being able to terminate tenancies after six months without giving a reason, and that landlords should reimburse them for at least part of their moving costs.The research also revealed that London’s white-hot competition means agents working in the capital are least likely to think the rental process is efficient or fair.But there was little support for longer tenancies – only a third thought tenants should have the right to sign tenancies for up to five years.“Tenants across the country pay out vast sums of money each month for accommodation and service levels that are substandard, sometimes even dangerous,” says Goodlord chief executive Richard White (pictured, left)“We know that they urgently want to see reform but it may surprise many that estate agents also want to see reform of the sector they work in.”“Agents think rental reform is not only the right thing to do but also makes good business since it will help good landlords that provide a much-needed product to prosper and force the cowboys out of the sector.“The Government has promised reforms, but now it is time to deliver them. Tenants will not tolerate being treated like second class citizens for any longer.”  July 12, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
