Other countries and private firms have also been sceptical about dealing with the Chinese, especially in mobile technology markets.But firms such as ZTE and rival Huawei Technologies are now taking on traditional powerhouses Ericsson and Nokia. ZTE has rolled out seven 4G mobile networks, called LTEs, and has trialled a further 50 worldwide.It has had the most success exporting to developing markets in Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe, but has made less inroads with major contracts in developed markets such as the US and Western Europe.Under its latest deal, ZTE will build a complete network for Telenor Hungary, including LTE capabilities, in addition to older 2G and 3G technology.ZTE has previously built similar networks for Telenor, which has major presence in emerging markets, in India and Montenegro.Last week, ZTE’s quarterly earnings missed forecasts as a result of the ban on its equipment sales to India. whatsapp Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndoCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy FanUndoautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

In a rural area in the center of Israel, Auerbach-Halevy has designed a unique house: at first glance it is not recognized as residential, and even at a second one it is difficult to distinguish what isitused for. The design is a concrete block, 9 meters height without visible openings. The north elevation facing the street and both side facades seem completely opaque and yet they are not alienated to their environment. The entire structure is covered with a uniform system of prefabricated exposed concrete panels, which are integrated with heavywoodLatticework – A reminder to the traditional oriental element –the eastern trellis (“mashrabia”). The combination of materials and distribution arrangements add warmth, and ease the rigid system.Save this picture!© Uzi PoratIn HOUSE Kthe pre-cast concrete panels participatein the interior design,dictate the rhythm in the house and affect its scale. The same systemof dimensionswasused by the architect in the exterior dismantleof the cube mass, and for the interior of the house, as a guide for furniture layout and decorative objects.This idea goes all the way tothe fine details up to thedesign of the book’s shelves.Save this picture!© Uzi PoratThe unique appearance of the house, therefore, expresseslocality, although it relies on seemingly contradictory sources. Combining the exposed concrete elements with thetrellis wooden work, creates a unified and coherent language,and produces complexity. This combination of elements transcends beyond the contrasting and complementary nature of the materials, resolves the symbolic collision produced by the components, and therefore creating a unity between traditionArab styleand modernist building.Save this picture!© Auerbach Halevy ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessWiel Arets: Autobiographical References Book EventArticlesGreen Square Library & Plaza Design Competition Entry / Hyunjoon Yoo ArchitectsArticles Share ArchDailycenter_img 2010 Year:  “COPY” Photographs Save this picture!© Uzi Porat+ 14 Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/290858/house-k-auerbach-halevy-architects Clipboard Year:  2010last_img read more

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40Text description provided by the architects. We took on this project in the understanding that there was a need to “manipulate” the building code applicable to “our” lot. This code established the construction of either a townhouse or a row house, with a back yard and a three meter set back from the street in order to create a unitary facade along the block.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe existing homes adapt to these rules, the result being the repetitive planning of the same type of house.Save this picture!AxonometricOur clients, A&N, had other needs: they wanted a home that was well oriented, that offered certain spatial complexity and that had lots of light. They wanted to be able to use the open spaces produced by the set backs that resulted from applying the code, and they also wanted these spaces to have spatial value. They also wanted the advantages of cross ventilating every room.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe proposal is based on a relational, central, vertical axis that generates a foyer—a kind of inner courtyard within the house itself. Following that axis, the house is divided in two, with two bays on either side. These bays create set backs in order to capture the light that comes in from the west. Most of the floor area ratio is used up by grouping the construction against the party wall. This frees up the rest of the lot, generates good access space to the garage and enables a generous amount of light to penetrate into each of the rooms.Save this picture!SectionEach of the rooms is associated with an independent volume or “cube”. These are either set back or pulled outwards depending on their needs regarding natural light, shade or privacy.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasWe came across a surplus of white Macael marble baseboards at a production plant nearby. This led us to consider reinterpreting the traditional use of this material and to apply it as a cladding on the facade. Each of the projecting and inset volumes that make up the main facade are clad following a composition that wraps around their openings. This finishing is framed by a metal angle that serves as a transitional element between the cladding and the rendered surfaces of the facade.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe outside image of the house is one of twinned volumes that jut out and set back with respect to the main facade line, a fragmented arrangement that, nevertheless, is perceived as a unitary ensemble.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasPROPOSAL:The goal of the design is to create a single family townhouse that adapts to the needs of the clients:
The house has a semi-basement, a ground floor, a first floor and a turret. They each have the following program: Semi-basement: Garage; plumbing, heating, cooling and power facilities; den.
Ground floor: Day use
Firs floor: Night use

Melanie May | 1 November 2016 | News CLIC Sargent has launched a new brand identity with a logo and message pledging the charity’s fight for ‘Young Lives Vs Cancer’.  According to the charity, it follows extensive consultation with young cancer patients and their families and represents a new strong voice for young cancer patients aged 0-24.It was created with the help of Warwickshire design agency Chemical Code and moves from a largely single-colour visual language to a wider, more flexible identity. The launch was supported by celebrity photographer Richard Young, who photographed Trent Julicher, 9, and Bradley Gudger, 23 (main image) who have both been supported by the charity, wearing its new brand identity.CLIC Sargent has also announced that it has received a £1.9m donation from players of the People’s Postcode Lottery as the result of three draws.The total was raised in October and will help fund CLIC Sargent’s specialist teams of nurses, social care workers and play specialists.Two draws were held on 8th October and a third on 15th, with another draw still to be held in November, with the charity receiving a minimum of 30% of every £10 subscription to these draws.Rachel Kirby-Rider, director of income and engagement at CLIC Sargent, said:“The vital funds raised by the People’s Postcode Lottery will make a huge difference by providing support to young cancer patients and their families when the doctor says ‘it’s cancer’.”How to apply for People’s Postcode Lottery fundingCharities wishing to apply for funding from the People’s Postcode Lottery can apply directly to four of the charity trusts that distribute funds raised by the Lottery’s players. These are: Postcode Community Trust, which supports marginalised groups in obtaining skills and resources to make changes in their own communities, Postcode Local Trust, which funds charities and good causes that help communities enhance their natural environment in a way that benefits the wider community, Postcode Dream Trust, which helps charitable organisations deliver their dream project, and People’s Postcode Trust.People’s Postcode Trust will be announcing details of its 2017 programme towards the end of the year, and is interested in applications focusing in the current areas of development: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14  121 total views,  1 views today  122 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14 New brand identity for CLIC Sargent & a £1.9m donation from People’s Postcode Lottery About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

first_imgWhile the U.S. Congress votes hundreds of billions of dollars for military expansion, it is squeezing health programs vital to the people. As Congress’s reaction to the threatened Zika epidemic shows, the capitalist health care model kills.In response to Zika, the Obama administration requested in February that Congress allot $1.9 billion for emergency measures to prevent its spreading in the United States. The funds would be used to develop a vaccine, pay for tests and treatment, and discover methods of containing the disease-carrying Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.The Senate voted to allocate $1.1 billion of new funds. Then House reactionaries reduced this to $622 million and insisted that money be diverted from funds earmarked for a possible recurrence of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, which killed over 28,000 people. The White House calls this amount “woefully inadequate” and threatens a veto if the House vote carries. Even some right-wing South­ern politicians want more funding, as their states are vulnerable to Zika.While not rendering most sufferers acutely ill, Zika presents a danger to developing fetuses. The virus can cause microcephaly, characterized by small brains and brain damage, and even fetal death. It is also associated with Guillain-Barre syndrome, a potentially paralyzing, even deadly, neurological disease. The virus can be spread by sexual contact.Outbreaks of Zika have occurred in Latin America and the Caribbean. Puerto Rico reports 1,100 cases, with 129 involving pregnant women. (U.S. News & World Report, May 20) As of May 18, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that 544 U.S. residents, including 157 pregnant women, have been infected.As Congress squabbles over Zika allocations, other health programs are being hit hard. The National Institutes of Health is trimming its malaria, tuberculosis and influenza programs to finance research for a Zika vaccine. The CDC moved $44 million from public health emergency grants for states and cities to Zika funding. This money is part of the $589 million the White House has transferred from other programs (mostly efforts targeting Ebola) to fight Zika while awaiting Congress’s resolution.Needed: medicine for people, not profitThis theft from vital health programs hides that there is enough money to pay for the fight against Zika and other disease outbreaks, as well as an Ebola recurrence. Here are some budget items whose funding does nothing for the workers and oppressed people of this country:First, there’s the Pentagon budget of over $600 billion a year — and that’s only what is publicly reported. Billions more are covertly funneled to military and intelligence agencies. Also, eliminate the $1 trillion allotted to develop “smarter” nuclear weapons over the next 30 years.Second, there’s the $300 billion that the government pays annually to big banks for interest on federal loans.Third, eliminate all tax loopholes and gimmicks. Penalize all corporations that do not pay income tax. Last year, 27 profitable corporations did not pay a cent of this tax. (March 7, USA Today) Only 10.6 percent of federal revenue comes from corporate income taxes, reported the Pew Research Center on April 13.Tax breaks for the super-rich and big business reduce government revenue by billions, even trillions of dollars — money that could be used for health care and other human needs. It could fund research, prevention and treatment programs for Zika and every other disease — and still pay for expanded Medicare and/or Medicaid for all.But here’s the reality: This is a medical crisis in a capitalist country. Reactionary billionaires oppose government spending on public health and their political representatives fight allocations for it.What the masses of people really need is a socialized health care system in a socialist society, where the government’s role is to organize, prioritize and provide everything that is needed to meet disease outbreaks and medical emergencies — and provide free medical care — without political resistance.Cuba provides a stellar example of how the Zika crisis can be handled with a slew of preventive public health measures. We have to fight for a socialist system that puts people’s needs first and relegates the war machine and profit-hungry banks and corporations and their politicians to the dustbin of history.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgWorker-activists, community leaders and organizers unfurled a striking red banner in New York’s Union Square Park on April 24 to announce plans for this year’s demonstration on International Workers’ Day, May 1. They handed out leaflets and spoke to the media and people enjoying the park on a bright spring day.Emblazoned with the slogan of the rally and march: “Fight together, strike to win! Migrants and workers run the world!” the banner set a militant tone at the site where New York workers have historically rallied on May Day and where the mass celebration of this revolutionary holiday was revived by immigrants starting in 2006.“We’re here today with a common call in celebration of the resistance and resilience of the working class and oppressed communities in New York and throughout the world,” declared Nina Macapinlac of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle, a member of the steering committee for this year’s action.“Every year people gather in Union Square on May Day, as they gather around the world, in defense of workers’ rights,” said Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center, one of the convening organizations. “We stand against all attacks on migrants, the raids and roundups. We stand in solidarity with LGBTQ and gender non-conforming people. We stand together against racism, cutbacks and attacks on Muslims. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and all our sisters and brothers around the world.”The diverse group of speakers included Hideko Otake of the Okinawa Peace Appeal, who connected May Day with the fight to remove U.S. military bases in Japan and worldwide, and Marcelo Maia of BRADO-NY [Brazilian Resistance Against Democracy Overthrow], who called on people to rally behind the demand to free imprisoned former union leader and Brazilian president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, aka “Lula.”Johnnie Stevens of Labor Against Racist Terror talked about the importance of solidarity with workers in an over-one-year strike against Spectrum Cable. “Spectrum works with Goldman-Sachs and Bank of America and makes $412 billion a year, but they won’t pay their workers or their pension plans.” Sofia Adams of Workers World Party read a statement from graduate student workers on strike against wealthy gentrifier Columbia University.“From drivers in the Philippines to teachers and laborers here in the U.S., workers are organizing and striking to demand safer working conditions, just working hours and better pay,” concluded Michael Garrovillas of BAYAN USA. “Any and all forms of oppression will breed resistance.”Readers in the New York area are urged to come out on Tuesday, May 1, to Union Square, at 14th Street and Broadway in Manhattan. A rally will begin at 12 noon, followed by 2 p.m. teach-ins and cultural performances, and a second rally at 3 p.m. The May Day march will step off at 5 p.m. For more info, visit Facebook.com/MayDayUnionSquare.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders still believes that the 2012 Proclamation on Telecom Fraud Offences as it is worded currently is disproportionately vague and could be applied to severely restrict the use of VoIP, ensuring the Ethio-Telecom network retains its service monopoly and maintains its revenue levels. The criminal law should be precise and be interpreted, we believe, as unambiguously as possible to protect people’s right to communicate using VoIP services. Because of the way in which Ethiopia’s justice system has handled matters of freedom of expression in recent years, we take an extremely cautious view of this move by the government.The articles in their current form are phrased too broadly and could have serious negative effects on how journalists and dissidents use communications via the Internet, putting them at a greater risk of surveillance and inevitable legal pitfalls. The current definition of telecommunications services and telecommunications equipment could cover blogging platforms and social networks, as pointed out by the OWNI website. The risks for individuals cannot be underestimated. Article 5 of the second section of the bill, covering offences of illegal interception and access, provides for up to 15 years’ imprisonment and a fine for anyone who “without the authorization of the provider or lawful user, or any other competent authority … illegally obtains access to any telecommunications system”.In addition, article 6 of the second section of the bill specifies that anyone who uses the telecommunications network or apparatus to disseminate any “terrorizing” or “obscene” message, or uses the infrastructure for “any other illegal purpose” could be liable for a penalty of up to eight years’ imprisonment. The vagueness of this wording is a cause for concern. Broad interpretation of the 2009 anti-terrorism law has already led to the arrest and sentencing of journalists to long prison terms.Article 10, paragraph four, can be understood to mean the provision and use of VoIP services (it does not specify whether this means paid-for as well as free of charge), whether intentionally or “by negligence”, are offences punishable by up to two years’ imprisonment. (Paragraph 3/”Whosoever provides telephone call or fax services through the internet commits an offence and shall be punishable with rigorous imprisonment from 3 to 8 years and with fine”. Paragraph 4/ “Whosoever intentionally or by negligence obtains the service stipulated under sub-article (3) of this Article commits an offence and shall be punishable with imprisonment from 3 months to 2 years and with fine”.)This article could have serious implications for Internet cafes and their customers. Internet cafes are the main point of Internet access for Ethiopians. The country’s connection coverage is extremely low – around 0.7 percent. Any measures designed to restrict VoIP use in Internet cafes would have an adverse effect on a considerable number of Ethiopian Internet users. EthiopiaAfrica May 18, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Organisation July 6, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Although still at draft stage, new telecoms rules give cause for concern RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia Follow the news on Ethiopia News Reporters Without Borders wishes to correct a report published on its website on 7 June stating that the 2012 Proclamation on Telecom Fraud Offences had been ratified by the Ethiopian authorities. We understand that the document has not yet been approved, despite the fact that the agenda circulated to journalists covering Parliament on May 24 explicitly said: “Examine and Endorse a Proclamation on Telecom Fraud Offences”. More than 99 percent of the assembly’s members belong to the ruling party. Reporters Without Borders understands from media reports that the bill was drawn up by the Information Network Security Agency (INSA), tabled for discussion by the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and has now been referred to the Science, Communication and Technology Affairs Standing Committee for further inspection.The Ethiopian government’s positionAsked about the intent of the law and its potential to clamp down on communication, a government spokesman, Shimeles Kemal, told a Reporters Without Borders representative that ‘‘the compelling reasons behind the promulgation of this law are technological progress and the alarming increase in the incidence of illegal telephone services that bypass the national network, posing loss of revenue and national security risks”. He said his government wished to create no new offences but rather to address telecoms-related fraud that could not have been dealt with under existing laws. It was wrong to assume that this law was intended to regulate media content one way or another, Shimeles said, adding: ‘‘It should be viewed as a legal framework that addresses the serious national security issues highlighted by the increasing merger of telecoms services with the Internet. Content-related matters are dealt with by our media laws.’’‘‘The law was never meant to criminalize VoIP services such as Skype or others’’, he told Reporters Without Borders ‘‘Neither did it aim to restrict any-Internet-based voice service that takes place between PCs, PC to phone and Internet-based phone-to phone services. Had this been the case, the agency could have used existing laws to ban VoIP and charge users in court.”Reporters Without Borders notes that an earlier order, No. 281/2002: “Proclamation to Provide for the Amendment of Telecommunications Proclamation” presents a danger to all users of Internet-based voice communication. Amendment 11 of the current 2002 law, under which no one has been convicted or sentenced yet, makes all communication by fax or voice via the Internet illegal and liable to a fine or a prison sentence of up to five years. Reporters Without Borders still concerned Reporters Without Borders, acting as an international watchdog regarding legislation that could impinge on freedom of information, asks the Ethiopian authorities not to approve the ‘2012 Proclamation on Telecom Fraud Offences’ as it stands. The organization is willing to hold discussions with the government to try to clarify the bill and ensure it protects the basic rights of people to communicate while addressing the government’s concerns about cyber security.On June 29, Shimeles reiterated to Reporters Without Borders his government’s readiness to work with international organizations that could lend technical expertise on guidelines for freedom of information and related legislation to ensure international best practice and standards are upheld. “We have worked in the past with international organizations and we still welcome those who want to engage in consultative discussions with a view to support the frameworks’ ability to promote and protect the right to information and media development,’’ he said ‘’We intend to do that while diligently working to address any loopholes that might undermine our national interests and security.” center_img February 10, 2021 Find out more to go further News Help by sharing this information May 21, 2021 Find out more Equally alarming is what we believe are pervasive surveillance powers granted to the police by this bill. Under article 14, a police officer may request the court in writing for a covert search warrant “where he has reasonable grounds to believe that a telecom fraud offence has been committed or is likely to be committed.” It also allows evidence gathered through such interception or surveillance to be admissible.The ministry would have excessive powers not only over businesses and institutions but also over individuals since the bill requires anyone who uses or holds any telecommunication equipment first to obtain a permit. Cases where this is waived are an exception (paragraph 3.3 of section two: the Ministry shall “prescribe types of telecommunication equipment the manufacturing, assembling, sale or the use of which shall not require permits”).Lastly, it is regrettable that the draft has no safeguard clause designed to protect freedom of expression and excluding the use of VoIP from the bill’s scope.Government ready to hold talks RSF_en News Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditation Journalist attacked, threatened in her Addis Ababa home EthiopiaAfrica last_img read more
