The resort composed of 7 apartments (including a duplex) and leisure areas came into shape after the partial demolition of an old paint factory — of which the warehouse with a healthier and more regular structure was maintained. The surrounding space and the highly restrictive construction rules imposed the maintenance of a simple volumetry that works as a sort of edge separating a seafront high-traffic regional road from a low-traffic one.Save this picture!Cortesia de SalworksThe necessarily reduced implantation forced the displacement of the pool to the last storey where, attached to a sunroom, ended up creating more impact with its view over the ocean and the surrounding beaches. The white-walled and wood-floored apartments are organized around a core space that contains all the main functions — bathroom, pantry and technical area — thus freeing the remaining room in a more generous way. Sliding interior doors that easily hide in the walls help create free spaces with more common boundaries.Save this picture!Cortesia de SalworksSave this picture!Section BB’Save this picture!Cortesia de SalworksOutside, the image of the polished concrete and the black matte plumbs that rule the façades which alternately expose and hide the interior, together with the basalt stone of the walls, imposes a presence that gives the place a sense of completion.

New media legislation needed after president vetoes digital TV law

first_img RSF_en ChileAmericas The Digital Terrestrial Television Act received final approval by the Senate on 15 October but its enactment has been halted by the president. The main broadcasting groups aside, its critics have been harsh. The legislation theoretically allocates 40 percent of the new capacity to regional or local broadcasters. However, observers point out that these have no real autonomy. “Most are appendages of the main national broadcasters,” said Mosciatti. “The market will decide.”In the view of officials of the alternative television station Señal 3 La Victoria: “This law is designed only to extend the existing media establishment. There is no redistribution.” Chile’s media oligopoly, which was the target of social protests in 2011, has yet to be overhauled. This will entail the abolition of Pinochet’s legacy, which still haunts the country and its journalists. November 26, 2019 Find out more News News Lost illusionsOn 13 August this year, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination heard testimony from Mireya Manquepillan, the head of Kimche Mapu, a radio station of the indigenous Mapuche community. She spoke of the plight endured by her people, including in the field of news and information. Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Chile to go further July 6, 2020 Find out more News November 26, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 New media legislation needed after president vetoes digital TV law Chile’s outgoing president has vetoed the Digital Television Act, a law that would have opened the way to modest progress in broadcasting in Chile despite being criticized for not going far enough to redistribute frequencies.Reporters Without Borders regards the arguments deployed by the president’s office in a 19 November paper defending the veto as a misuse of the concept of “pluralism” to defend the economic interests of a few at the expense of real pluralism.New broadcast media legislation must be a priority for Chile’s next president, who will be chosen during the second round of the presidential elections that is scheduled for 15 December.Those most affected by the presidential veto are community media because the proposed law would have reserved a portion of the country’s broadcast frequencies for them and for local and regional media. It would also have prevented religious broadcasters from being treated as community media.“This is a disaster for real community media,” said Maria Pia Matta (photo), head of the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC). “Evangelical groups will be able to use the ‘community broadcaster’ label even if they provide no information. This is a setback both for pluralism and for our status.”The veto also puts paid to a reform under which state-owned Televisión Nacional de Chile (TVN) would have been given a second frequency at the regional level, which it could have used to broadcast not only its own programming but also content produced locally by those who do not have the resources to broadcast it themselves.As a result, TVN will continue to have just one frequency in the name of “pluralism,” meaning “for the sake of the interests of leading commercial media close to the current government that did not want any reinforcement of the already weak state broadcast sector,” one observer commented.Another controversial effect of the veto will be its limitation of cultural programming to four hours instead of “at least four hours” under the proposed law.“For a vote to override the presidential veto and reinstate the original law, the constitution says you need a quorum of two thirds of the deputies and senators at the moment of voting in each house,” Pia Matta said. “In the face of such a obstacle, the only option is a new law.”_________26.11.2013: Next president must grasp the nettle of media democratisationOn the eve of Chile’s presidential election on 17 November, Reporters Without Borders urges the candidates to give a firm commitment to democratising information and communications. We appeal especially to the two main contenders Michelle Bachelet, who served previously as president from 2006 to 2010, and Evelyn Matthei. Unlike neighbouring countries such as Argentina and Uruguay, Chile never repealed the regulation framework established under the 1973-1990 military dictatorship. In the 21 years since the return to democracy, governments run by the Concert of Parties for Democracy, including the one headed by Bachelet, have not reformed the system based on concentrated private ownership, which is anathema to pluralism. The mechanisms that perpetuate such a system must be dismantled urgently. In first place is the government subsidies paid to the print media, of which the duopoly El Mercurio and Copesa – owners of 95 percent of print titles — are the sole beneficiaries. Second is the 1982 general law on communications, passed during the Pinochet era, and its section 36B, which was added later and provides for a custodial sentence for broadcasting on an illegal frequency. This legislation has turned broadcasting into a closed shop, at the expense of small, independent and community-based radio and television stations, which have been waiting for years to be granted official status. The law passed in May 2010, providing for the establishment of community and citizens’ radio broadcasting services, must be applied. The transfer or reallocation of frequencies must also be imposed, since the consortium Iberoamericana Radio Chile, which holds 60 percent of them, refuses to abide by the 2012 agreement between broadcasters and the telecoms regulator Subtel. Reporters Without Borders has submitted these recommendations, as well as the decriminalisation of press offences which is still in abeyance, to the United Nations Human Rights Council, which is due to discuss Chile at its Universal Periodic Review session in January and February next year. Will they be taken into consideration? The circumstances do not necessarily point in that direction. News Immediately after she spoke out, the government announced a plan for indigenous radio stations for 2014-2016. “We were promised 30 new stations, a budget of 10 million pesos (about 15,000 euros) and a pilot project at the end of October which Kimche Mapu was to have undertaken,” Manquepillan told Reporters Without Borders. “Since then, there’s been nothing. It was all talk.” During a recent visit to Chile by Reporters Without Borders, Tomas Mosciatti, the manager and co-owner of the radio station Bío Bío, also expressed his concerns: “The 2010 law opened up community radio only slightly and just for those who put out municipal propaganda or preach the Gospel, who are ‘community’ in name only.“In general terms, the radio audience has declined significantly and there is little hope that digital television, which will generate very few new channels, will be its salvation.” ChileAmericas Journalists face archaic sanction of capital punishment in some parts of the world Organisation Receive email alerts Chile: RSF calls for exemplary investigation into Chilean photographer’s murder November 11, 2020 Find out more Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics”last_img read more

“Delhi Riots Gripped By Communal Frenzy, Reminiscent Of Carnage During Partition Days”: Delhi Court Denies Anticipatory Bail To One

first_imgNews Updates”Delhi Riots Gripped By Communal Frenzy, Reminiscent Of Carnage During Partition Days”: Delhi Court Denies Anticipatory Bail To One Nupur Thapliyal3 May 2021 5:22 AMShare This – xA Delhi Court recently denied anticipatory bail to one Siraj Ahmad Khan, accused for being a part of a riotous mob which attacked a young boy namely Raman, in connection with the Delhi riots that broke out in February last year after opining that such days were “reminiscent of carnage during the days of partition.” Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav rejected the anticipatory bail application after observing thus: “It is common knowledge that the dreary day(s) of 24/25.02.2020 saw parts of North-East Delhi gripped by a communal frenzy, reminiscent of carnage during the days of partition. Soon, the riots spread like wildfire across the smoke-grey skyline of Capital, engulfing new areas and snuffing out more and more innocent lives.” According to the prosecution, it was alleged that a mob consisting of about 15-20 hooligans brutally attacked the complainant Raman with “swords and dandas” on 25th February resulting in him sustaining severe injuries on the head, back and feet. It was therefore the case of the prosecution that the investigation revealed a “deep rooted conspiracy” which triggered the communal riots in North East Delhi region. Special Public Prosecutor Saleem Ahmed submitted before the Court that “a web of conspirators” were indentified and arrested by the police in the matter and that the riots were not impromptu, but were conspired with the intent to create communal strife and to malign the image of the country under the garb of democratically opposing the Citizenship Amendment Act. Moreover, it was argued that the “common object” of the accused persons was to cause maximum damage to the persons and properties of “other community”. Khan was declared as a proclaimed offender by the Court vide order dated 23rd December 2020. According to the prosecution, Khan had deliberately absconded in the case which is why his custodial interrogation was necessary to “unearth the entire conspiracy.” On the other hand, it was argued on behalf of the applicant accused that he was falsely implicated in the case and that no specific role has been assigned to him in the matter for the alleged offences. Therefore, Khan had sought anticipatory bail on the ground of parity submitting that other co accused persons have been granted bail in the matter. Furthermore, it was also submitted on behalf of the accused that the officials of the New Usmanpur Police Station were threatening his family members to arrest him and had visited his house in odd hours. Moreover, it was also argued that no notice under sec. 160 CrPC was issued by the investigating agency either against the applicant or his family members. Regarding his presence at the crime scene, the SPP argued that the CCTV footage clearly showed Khan carrying a spear in his hands. Analyzing the facts of the case, the Court observed that it was “prima facie apparent” that Khan was called several times by the investigating agency to join the investigation in the matter, but was still evading his appearance before the agency. The Court also opined that the fact of other co-accused persons also having been enlarged on bail by this Court “will not water down the conduct of applicant which he has displayed in the matter by absconding right from the day when his name cropped in the matter.” “The allegations against the applicant are grave in nature. The presence/appearance of applicant is very much necessary to unearth the conspiracy involved in planning, instigating and fanning the flames of communal conflagration. Considering the facts and circumstances of the case in totality and the conduct exhibited by applicant during the course of investigation, I do not find it to be a fit case for grant of anticipatory bail to the applicant. The application for anticipatory bail is accordingly dismissed.” The Court observed while rejected the grant of anticipatory bail.

Oxford at number two in world rankings

first_imgThe University of Cambridge was five places below, coming in in seventh, whilst Imperial College London was the only other British university to make the top ten, coming in 10th position.Despite these successes, a number of UK universities were ranked lower than in recent years. Traditionally well-respected universities such as Manchester and Bristol fell from 48th to 58th place, and from 66th to 79th place respectively. University College London has also slipped to 21st from its position in 17th last year.The disproportionate success of Oxbridge and the London universities, however, has led to concerns that funding and research have become too focused on this so-called “golden triangle”, which has reduced the available resources for universities in the rest of the country.Phil Baty, editor of the rankings, commented, “On the whole, the UK has had a very stable year, with little overall change to its position behind the US as the world’s second best higher education nation. This is good news after stark evidence of decline in last year’s rankings.“But there are still concerns for our world-leading ‘brand name’ institutions: Imperial College London, University College London plus the universities of Manchester and Bristol have all slipped to varying degrees.”Dr Wendy Piatt, director general of the Russell Group, which represents 24 top universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, said, “The Government was right to protect research spending and talk up the importance of science and research for the future growth of the UK.”“But investment in the UK still lags far behind the US, China and many other Western European countries. And the global race is hotting up – with many Asian universities continuing to climb up the rankings.”Oxford students Rebecca Fynn and Rosanna Holdsworth told Cherwell, “Although we’re pleased that Oxford has done so well, it shouldn’t be at the cost of other universities’ success.”Another student at Oxford, who wished to remain anonymous, also commented, “I don’t really care about the success of other universities. Oxford does well because they choose bright students who work hard, and spend a lot of time and money on research. We deserve to do well, and we do.”last_img read more
