This construction consists of two compact main buildings, carved on their five faces. Save this picture!© Olivier Dancy The first one, in alignment with Street General Chevert has got 3 levels (R+2). It includes common areas at the basement level, and part of the flats on the above floors. The second block connected to the first building by a volume in REGLIT, only has two levels (R+1) and hosts the rest of the flats. The two blocks are separated by a central glazed volume offering two living room floors allowing residents to welcome their family. Facade materials used for housing are ETERNIT panels on outside insulation, drilled by metal frames including lacquered wood windows. The random pattern layout of the fiber cement panels gives a certain flow on the facades, reflecting the movement of the street. The roofs are carved in 3 dimensions and coated with standing joint zinc.

Purdue Celebrating 10 Years at Farm Science Review

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Purdue Celebrating 10 Years at Farm Science Review Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Purdue Celebrating 10 Years at Farm Science Review By Gary Truitt – Sep 16, 2014 As the   Farm Science Review opened on Tuesday with a  three-day run  in London, Ohio, Purdue and Ohio State universities commemorated a decade of working together to make the event one of the largest agricultural expositions in the Midwest  “We’re proud of our 10-year partnership with OSU at the Farm Science Review,” said Jay Akridge, Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue’s College of Agriculture. “As land-grant institutions, Purdue and Ohio State know the importance of investing in both education and agriculture. Educating farmers about new advances in production agriculture helps increase yields, sustainability and profits, which ultimately benefit our respective states.”The Farm Science Review draws about 130,000 farmers, growers, business people and students each year, nearly half of them from Indiana.The partnership has benefited both universities, the Farm Science Review and the farmers who attend it, said Chuck Gamble, manager of the event. “The Purdue partnership has given us the opportunity to market to a whole new demographic of farmers in Indiana,” Gamble said. “I look forward to seeing what the next decade of partnership will bring.”The importance of the Purdue-OSU partnership was recognized in 2011 when David Petritz, former dean of Purdue Agriculture, was inducted into the Farm Science Review Hall of Fame for his role in bringing the two public universities together.Highlighting this year’s review as be a dinner  for Purdue agricultural alumni in the Tobin Building near Gate J on the review grounds. Jason Henderson, associate dean of Purdue Agriculture and director of Purdue Extension, Twas the featured speaker.  This year’s Farm Science Review again will include education and information sessions covering some the latest trends and issues in the industry.Among Purdue representatives participating and the topics of their presentations are:* Roy Ballard, “A Year in the Life of a Food Hub” and “SARE Grant Funding for Your Farm or Business.”* Larry Caplan, “Maximizing Yield in the Vegetable Garden.”* Rob Chapman, “Grassland and Wildflower ID.”* Emily Eggleston, “Urban Land Leasing for Small Farms and Community Gardens.”* Lenny Farlee, “The Exclusion Solution: Fencing Deer Out” and “Steps to Successful Conservation Tree Planting.”* Mike Gunderson, “Farmers Brand Loyalty” and “Farm Risk Management Strategies that Work.”* Henderson, “Future of the Rural Economy.”* Chad Martin, “Grass: Bioenergy and Nutrient Management.”* Brian MacGowan, “Controlling Wildlife Damage Around the Home and Yard.”* Jim Mintert, “PLC, ARC, ARC-L or ARC-C? Farmer Choices for the 2014 Farm Bill.”* Scott Monroe, “Good Ag Practices for Produce During Harvest, Transport and Packaging.”*Michael O’Donnell, “On-Farm Poultry Processing” and “Organic No-Till Crop Production.”* Maria Restrepo, “Organic Heirloom Tomato Production.”For a complete schedule of presentations and presenters, as well as tickets and other event information, visit the Farm Science Review website.The Farm Science Review is sponsored by The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Participants can peruse more than 4,000 product lines from across the U.S. and Canada and engage in educational opportunities with specialists from Purdue and Ohio State universities.            Previous articleLivestock Producers are Believers in ISDA Certified ProgramNext articleProgress on CARB Corn Ethanol Scores but Still Room for Improvement Gary Truittlast_img read more

TCU and Missouri State reflect similarities

first_imgprintWhile TCU is attempting to become the seventh school to earn four consecutive College World Series berths and Missouri State’s sole appearance came in 2003, the Horned Frogs and Bears have more than a few things in common heading into their Super Regional showdown in Fort Worth.Starting Pitching TBAWhile MSU has yet to release their starting rotation plans because of the status of their ace Doug Still, TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said his team has a starting pitching set up in mind, but he is waiting to release the Horned Frogs’ plan until the Bears reveal their arms arrangement.Still is the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year, transferring from Jefferson College, totaling an 8-2 record to go along with a 2.66 earned run average, 85 strikeouts, and 24 walks in 98 innings of work.However, MSU head coach Keith Guttin has said what he plans to do if Still can pitch in Game 1 Saturday.“We don’t know honestly if Still is going to be able to start tomorrow and won’t know until tonight or tomorrow morning, depending on how he feels,” MSU head coach Keith Guttin said. “It will be Still, [Dylan] Coleman or [Jordan] Knutson Saturday and one of them Sunday and whoever is left on Monday.”Still pitched two games in the Fayetteville Regional last week, throwing 5.2 innings on 72 pitches in the round one game against Oklahoma State and 5.0 innings on 70 pitches with two days’ rest against the regional host, the Arkansas Razorbacks.“Tremendous, gritty performance,” Guitton said. “Going into it, honestly, I was hoping to get two or three innings and he just shut them down. He felt fine. Was in command, and we got five. It was a great effort. A gutty effort on his part in two days.”Guittin said if Still doesn’t start Game 1, right-hander Dylan Coleman or left-hander Jordan Knutson would start, and that Still would still be in the mix for Game 2 or Game 3 start.Knutson also carried a heavy workload last weekend for the Bears, pitching in all four regional games. He won in relief in games one and two, as well as recording his first save of 2017 in Game 7.Schlossnagle was less specific when addressing his starting rotation plan, leaving room for speculation.Maybe Schlossnagle decides to roll with his ace, sophomore right-hander Jared Janczak, who’s started and won a Super Regional game on the road against Texas A&M last season and is 2-1 in five postseason starts, including an eight-inning gem against Virginia in the Fort Worth Regional.He has earned the distinction of ace with a 9-0 record and 1.89 ERA season in 2017.From there, it’s anyone’s guess who could come next. Senior right-hander Brian Howard is undefeated in his last four postseason starts against Arizona State, Texas A&M, Coastal Carolina, and Dallas Baptist, and is TCU’s first back-to-back 10-game winner.Redshirt senior right-hander Mitchell Traver is 4-2 in six postseason starts and has surrendered one run in four home postseason appearances. In his last three starts this season against Cal, Texas, and Central Connecticut State, he has a 1.12 ERA, 21 strikeouts and just four walks.With those three pitchers starting in the Fort Worth regional, TCU won all three of its games. Janzcak, Howard, and Traver have a combined 15 starts, 10 wins and 98 innings pitched in NCAA Tournament action. But, Schlossnagle is hunting to find innings for left-hander Nick Lodolo in the NCAA Tournament, even if it means bringing his freshman All-American out of the bullpen for the first time.

He sets the tone leading off the game. He gives the rest of the lineup a chance to see what’s going on, and he may not get a hit or get on base every time, but you can count on it being at least five, six, or seven pitches in an at-bat, and there’s a lot of selflessness in that.”This season, Wade has gotten on base in nearly every game, reaching in 53 of 56 games he’s played.Wade and his Horned Frog teammates are sixth in the nation with 329 walks drawn. Of those 329, 115 have come all the way to score at a 34.9 percent clip.  Missouri State is fourth in walks drawn with 346.“A lot of our wins correlate with our positive numbers in the free 90 feet battle, so we’re going to take what a pitcher gives us,” Wade said. “If he’s up there throwing strikes, we’re going to try to put good swings on balls, but when guys are competing like crazy and missing a few pitches here and there, you try to take deep counts and deep at bats. If they’re going to give us 90 feet, we’ll take it.”TCU ranks 26th in runs scored with 423. Missouri State ranks 24th with 430.First pitch for Game 1 of the Fort Worth Super Regional is set for 5 p.m. Saturday at Lupton Stadium.

He struck out 69 batters in 73.2 innings.“For the future of our team and our program, I want Nick to have a chance to pitch in this kind of environment,” Schlossnagle said. “That may be a start, that may be out of the bullpen. We got him a good sim game this week, practiced a few situations.”Lodolo pitched the opener of the last four regular-season series for TCU while Janczak missed time with a shoulder strain, and pitched the opener of the Big 12 tournament against Kansas. He finished 2-0 with three no-decisions.However, Schlossnagle said  TCU’s pitching riches may not matter this weekend. “The Super Regional is the one time of year where pitching depth really doesn’t matter,” Schlossnagle said. “It’s about the first four or five or six guys, unless you get an extra-inning game or you’re getting blown out and you want to save some innings on the high-end guys. He’s certainly one of those five or six guys. We’ll see how the games go day to day.”The Horned Frogs utilized just four relievers: Jake Eissler, Cal Coughlin, Sean Wymer, and Durbin Feltman for 5.1 innings in their three-game sweep of the regional. Traver departed with a 3-1 lead in the eighth inning against CCSU. Janczak left with a 4-1 lead against Virginia in the ninth inning. Howard was jogged to the dugout in the seventh with a 14-2 lead. Six relief pitchers plus Lodolo went untouched.MSU has two-headed monster at the back end of its bullpen between junior right-hander Jake Fromson and senior right-hander Bryan Young.Fromson, used primarily in the middle innings, won MVC Pitcher of the Year this season with the second best rate of walks and hits allowed per inning, 0.78, in the nation to go along with an 8-3 record, three saves and 85 strikeouts in 72.2 innings. Young, MSU’s all-time appearance leader, has saved eight games for the Bears this season to go along with a 1-1 record, 1.53 earned run average, 47 strikeouts, 17 walks, and hitters are batting a paltry .118 against him.TCU pitchers are 14th in the country in strikeouts per nine innings at 9.3. Missouri State pitchers are 22nd overall at 9.0.Lineups stocked with power and patience “I think we’re pretty similar to TCU’s lineup with some boppers who put the ball over the fence, and some guys who grind out and win at-bats,” MSU All-American third baseman Jake Burger said.Burger compares similarly to TCU catcher Evan Skoug, an All-American in his own right, winning Co-Big 12 Player of the Year honors after hitting 18 home runs and driving in 62 runs.last_img read more

Murder of two women journalists brings media death toll since 2000 to 80

first_img to go further Federal District prosecutor Miguel Ángel Mancera promised that those responsible would be arrested quickly. The head of the Mexico City government, Marcelo Ebrard, also promised that justice would be done. Reporters Without Borders asks these officials or their aides to keep it informed about developments in the investigation. The motive has yet to be established.An investigative magazine that has been going for more than 10 years, Contralínea has been the target of intimidation and judicial harassment, especially since 2007, when its reporting proved embarrassing for the national oil company PEMEX.This double murder has compounded the widespread feeling of terror resulting from the federal offensive against drug trafficking launched in December 2006, whose death toll now stand at 50,000. Until now, Mexico City had seemed much less exposed to the violence than the rest of the country. NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Organisation September 2, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Murder of two women journalists brings media death toll since 2000 to 80 RSF_en News MexicoAmericas Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Reporters Without Borders is shocked by the murders of reporter Ana María Yarce Viveros, the founder of the weekly magazine Contralínea, and Rocio González Trápaga, a freelance journalist who used to work for Televisa. The bodies of two women were found in a Mexico City park yesterday.“We strongly condemn this escalation of terror against journalists in what is already one of the hemisphere’s most dangerous and deadliest countries for the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Eighty journalists have been killed in Mexico since 2000, six of them women. This double murder comes just a week after Humberto Millán Salazar, a presenter on Radio Formula and editor of the online newspaper A-Discusión, was murdered in the northwestern state of Sinaloa.“More and more journalists are faced with the choice between self-censorship or exile. Can the media survive in Mexico? The authorities have still not implemented an agreement on safety mechanisms for journalists that was signed nearly a year ago. We are waiting for the government to act.”Both aged 48, Yarce and González were kidnapped as they left their office and were strangled during the night of 31 August, Contralínea reported. According to the Federal District prosecutor’s office, their bodies were found yesterday in a park in the eastern district Iztapalapa.

Appeals court reduces editor’s sentence

first_img May 30, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Appeals court reduces editor’s sentence August 4, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information 30/05/03The Djibouti appeals court on 28 May cut Le Renouveau editor Daher AhmedFarah’s six-month suspended jail sentence to four months. The fine of twomillion Djibouti francs (FD) (more than 10,000 euros) was cancelled and hewas ordered to pay damages of 500,000 FD (about 2,500 euros) instead. Thecourt also said the daily paper could be published again. After thehearing however, Farah was taken back to Gabode prison, where he was lockedin an old lavatory measuring only 2.5 metres by 1.5. The second case forwhich he is in jail is still being prepared.————————————-28/05/03Reporters Without Borders urged the authorities to release newspaper editor Daher Ahmed FarahReporters Without Borders today urged the authorities to release newspaper editor Daher Ahmed Farah when his appeal hearing is held on 28 May. Farah has been detained since 20 April for libelling deputy army chief Gen. Zakaria Cheik Ibrahim.The organisation urged state prosecutor Djama Souleiman Ali to show clemency and request Farah’s release at the hearing. Farah is both editor of the newspaper Le Renouveau, and the head of an opposition political party, the Movement for Democratic Renewal and Development (MRD).”To our knowledge, Daher Ahmed Farah just exercised his right to inform the public, a right guaranteed by several international treaties ratified by the Republic of Djibouti,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “Nothing justifies this prolonged detention,” Ménard added, noting that the United Nations condemns “imprisonment as punishment for the peaceful expression of an opinion.” Reporters Without Borders also announced that a member of Lawyers Without Borders would arrive in Djibouti today May to defend Farah. No local lawyer is willing to defend him.The deputy army chief sued Farah for libel because of an article on 6 March accusing the army high command of carrying out politically-motivated dismissals. On 17 March, Farah was sentenced to a suspended sentence of six months in prison and a fine of 2, 000,000 FD (about 10,000 euros). Le Renouveau criticised the army again on 17 April, accusing it of lacking “neutrality” and saying it ” should be apolitical.” Farah was arrested three days later and placed in solitary confinement in Gabode prison. Only his mother has been allowed to visit him. His request for provisional release was turned down on 30 April.A few days after his arrest, the Djibouti special police went to Farah’s home and to the headquarters of the MRD where they confiscated seven typewriters, an amplifier, replacement ink cartridges for the photocopiers, and all of the newspaper’s files, although no search warrant was shown. On the morning of 5 May, police confiscated the latest issue of the newspaper from news stands and newspaper vendors.Farah was previously detained several times in the past few years. In most cases, he was prosecuted for a press crime and sentenced to prison terms for fines. On 15 March, he was detained for a day and fined for “undermining the army’s morale.” DjiboutiAfrica Another Voix de Djibouti reporter arrested in Djibouti City RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on Djibouti News News DjiboutiAfrica La Voix de Djibouti is not run by “opposition illiterates,” RSF says July 17, 2020 Find out more News December 9, 2020 Find out more Djibouti: Detained reporter’s home searched, Facebook account hacked to go further Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders urged the state prosecutor to release opposition editor Daher Ahmed Farah, detained since 20 April, and announced that a lawyer arrived in Djibouti to defend him.

Court imposes heavy fine on three journalists for insulting president

Organisation RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections News The two are summoned to appear before an Abidjan court on 15 September, along with the editor of Le Jour Plus, Frédéric Koffy. In the absence of the managing editor, he headed the editorial team on the day of publication of the offending article – which claimed the president’s wife, Simone Gbagbo, was partly responsible for the dumping of toxic waste in Abidjan.They face a fine of up to 20 millions CFA francs (about 30,500 euros).”The release of these two journalists is certainly good news, but they should never have been arrested and detained in the first place,” the press freedom organisation said.“The Ivorian presidency has a number of other ways to seek redress, including the publication of a right to reply, a denial or to refer the case to the bodies which regulate the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Instead of which it prefers to use an out-dated method which is at the margins of legality”.————-13.09.2006 – Two journalists arrested for linking president’s wife to toxic waste dumped in AbidjanReporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the arrest of Coulibaly Seydou, the managing editor of the privately-owned daily Le Jour Plus, and Edouard Gonto, one of his journalists, because of article claiming the president’s wife, Simone Gbagbo, was partly responsible for the dumping of toxic waste in Abidjan.“This is a scandal that only makes sense if you accept that the laws do not apply when the media criticise the president’s wife,” the press freedom organisation said. “The fact that a newspaper violates a taboo is no excuse for circumventing the law to get two journalists imprisoned. The only option for the authorities now is to release Seydou and Gonto at once.”Press offences ceased to be punishable by imprisonment in Côte d’Ivoire after the law was amended last year.Seydou and Gonto were summoned by the prosecutor general yesterday September after the newspaper ran a special feature on the toxic waste dumped in Abidjan, which has been blamed for a number of deaths. They were held overnight at the gendarmerie’s criminal investigation department and were taken to the prosecutor’s office this morning.It was not know what charges would be brought against them as the hearing was still continuing as this press release was issued.In its 11 September issue, Le Jour Plus published a dossier entitled, “Toxic waste: Mme Gbagbo at the heart of the scandal.” In one of the articles, Gonto claimed that President Laurent Gbagbo’s wife, the director-general of Abidjan’s port and the governor of the district of Abidjan all approved the deal under which the owner of the merchant vessel Probo Kaola was able to offload waste in various places in the city using a specially-created company. The article said the president’s office was nonetheless unaware that the waste was toxic and was misled about the quantity involved.

Bail in the matter was being sought in pursuance to an FIR registered for offences punishable under Sections 147, 148, 149, 120B of the Indian Penal Code. In order to oppose the application, the State had filed a status report on 6th March, 2020. In the aforementioned status report, it was claimed that the Crime Branch had received information which stated that the communal riots of February 2020 in Delhi were “pre-planned and the same were hatched by one Umar Khalid, a student of JNU and his associates and that all linked with different-2 groups”. Delhi HC has granted bail to Faizan Khan, an accused in the #DelhiRiots case who was facing charges under #UAPA.Justice Suresh Kumar Kait states that the status report of Delhi Police does not disclose commission of offences under UAPA, except for bald statements of witnesses. pic.twitter.com/TJNoWQTa3w— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) October 23, 2020 Violence was initiated in the garb of anti-CAA protests which lead to loss of lives and destruction of public property in North-East Delhi area between February 24-24, 2020. On the basis of facts revealed during the investigation, Sections 302/307/124A/153A/186/353/395/427/435/436/452/454/109/114 read with 120B of Indian Penal Code, Sections 3 and 4 of Prevention of Damage of Public Property Act, and Sections 25/27 of Arms Act were added in the present case. On 19.04.2020, Sections 13/16/17/18 of UAPA were added. On 04.06.2020, Section 341 of IPC was added, and on 26.07.2020, Section 201 was added, while on 29.07.2020, Sections 420/468/471 of IPC were added. The status report alleges that the accused Faizan Khan and co-accused Asif Iqbal Tanha were “acting in connivance with each other” and “in furtherance of a pre-conceived criminal conspiracy hatched with the other co-accused knowingly facilitated the commissioning of unlawful and terrorist act”. It is further stated in the report that the mobile phones of the accused persons were sent to CERT-IN for analysis and it was revealed that different WhatsApp groups were formed for coordination and passing of directions regarding mobilization of people at locations of CAA protest sites which lead to riots. Statements of witnesses and evidences collected were utilized for the adding of the aforementioned sections against the Petitioner in the instant matter. ASG SV Raju argued that the evidence collected showed that the Petitioner, in furtherance of criminal conspiracy with the co-accused deliberately issued the SIM card which was used to mobilise Muslims which led to chakka jam and riots at various protest sites in Delhi. Further, it was stated that the Petitioner was well aware of the conspiracy of riots since its inception. It was further submitted by Raju that the chargesheet had been filed against the 15 accused on 16.09.2020, however, none of them had been released on bail except for Safoora Zargar on humanitarian grounds. Investigation against six accused, including the Petitioner was pending and out of the 6, three had been released on bail. Raju also contended that the statements recorded under Section 161 and 164 of CrPC revealed that there was a deep-rooted conspiracy to disrupt the normal activity in Delhi and this was systematically carried out by certain indviduals who were specialized in “camouflaging violent protests as seemingly non-violent protests”. “In view of the evidences gathered by the investigating agency read with the presumption of commissioning of offence as provided under Section 14-E of UAPA, there exist no ground to grant bail to the Petitioner”, submitted Raju. Senior Advocate Salman Khurshid appeared on behalf of the Petitioner and submitted that the investigating agency had “misapplied and wrongly invoked” UAPA and that there was neither any allegation that the Petitioner had indulged in any terrorist act nor was there any material that remotely showed that Petitioner had funded any terror activity. Therefore, invocation of UAPA was a gross abuse to deprive the Petitioner of his personal liberty. It was also submitted that there was no material to show that there was no requisite intention on behalf of the Petitioner and the case of the investigating agency was that the SIM card was provided by the Petitioner on allurement of money, but not for any other objective. “Therefore, the invocation of the UAPA, 1967 is disproportionate and there is no material to satisfy the basic ingredients provided under the UAPA, 1967”. Justice Kait, after hearing the arguments and going through the material available on record, observed that it was not the case of the investigating agency that the Petitioner was a part of the WhatsApp groups which were made to organize protests against CAA and that there was no allegation against the Petitioner that he had engaged in terror funding or any other ancillary activity. The Court also noted that there was no proximate nexus between the incidents alleged by the investigating agency and it had also not been alleged that the Petitioner was privy or party to organizing protests against CAA, 2019. It was observed that the case of the investigation agency was that the SIM Card had been provided on the allurement of extra money. Referring to the 1994 Kartar Singh case, the Judge noted that for invoking UAPA, it was the duty of the agency to demonstrate that the Petitioner had “actual knowledge” that the said SIM would be used for organizing protests. “It was imperative for the investigation agency to demonstrate that the Petitioner had ‘active knowledge’ about the utilization of the said SIM card. It is not alleged that the petitioner was party to any such conspiracy to organize protests”. The Court also noted that the Petitioner had voluntarily appeared before the agency for questioning and did not evade or flee between the periods of registration of the FIR and the date of his arrest, which showed that he had fully cooperated with the probe and made himself available as when directed by the agency. The Court stated that the embargo for bail under Section 43D(5) of UAPA would not be attracted in the instant case as the status report of Delhi Police itself did not disclose the commission of any offences under UAPA, except for bald statements of witnesses. “It is pertinent to mention here that the onerous conditions/embargo under Section 43D(5) of the UAPA, 1967 will not be applicable in the present case qua the Petitioner herein as per the material on record and the investigating agency’s own status report, which does not disclose the commission of the offences under the UAPA, 1967, except bald statements of the witnesses”. It was also recorded that there was no proof such as CCTV footage, video or chats, except for the allegation that he had provided a SIM card on a fake ID in December 2019. Accordingly, without commenting on the merits of the case, the High Court observed that it was of the view that the Petitioner deserved bail. In light of the above, the Delhi High Court directed for Khan to be released on bail after furnishing a personal bond in the sum of Rs. 25,000/- with one surety of the like amount to the satisfaction of the Trial Court. Khan has been directed to not directly or indirectly influence any witnesses or tamper with the evidence. The Trial Court has been directed to not get influenced by the observations made by the High Court. Senior Advocate Salman Khurshid, along with Advocates Azra Rehman, Aadil Singh Boparai and Ragini Nayak appeared on behalf of the Petitioner. ASG SV Raju with SPPs Amit Mahajan, Rajat Nair and Advocates Shantnu Sharma, A. Venkatesh, Guntur Pramod Kumar, Dhruv Pandey, Sairica Raju and Shaurya R. Rai appeared on behalf of the Respondent.
