De La Rue declined to comment.If Oberthur were to go ahead with a second offer it could reignite debate about the foreign ownership of British companies, with the production of sterling and biometric passports being a particularly sensitive issue that the government would be likely to take a significant interest in.On Friday, De La Rue shares closed at 647.5p, valuing the group at around £640m.. The deal speculation follows the recent revelation that De La Rue is in the final stages of negotiations with Tim Cobbold, the head of the industrial group Chloride, to take over the vacant position of chief executive. The firm is keen to transform its fortunes after a disastrous admission in the summer that there had been printing irregularities at its factory in Overton, Hampshire. The admission threatened the company’s relationship with its biggest client, thought to be the Bank of India.

The architectural element follows a rigorous metric arrangement and structure that is inserted into the place using simplicity, function, and order.Save this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarThe house is structured in a long and narrow strip of an intentional geometry connected to its context, using local materialities, such as brick, wood, and tile, which together with concrete, metal, and glass are used to constrain the object. The house is hardly spotted, with the brick wall being the first thing that catches the eye, arising from a platform that stands on the filling of recycled tires. This wall also contains furniture, counters, bathrooms, facilities, etc., acting as a boundary between the topological external and the metric internal.Save this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarThe wide threshold in the brick masonry welcomes us and separates us from the exterior, articulating three architectural elements that have an elemental character:Save this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarThe hall, a covered and closed space, making up the residence itself. The patio or enclosure that due to its fragmented nature becomes more of a terrace; an uncovered space that allows one to scan the landscape, and the porch or portal; a covered and open space, that catches the shadow, destined for the contemplation of the horizon. We must note that they are parts of a whole of spatial units that are made up of limits, each in charge of constraining a direction of space. They can be distinguished by the wall as a horizontal limit, the ceiling as a vertical limit, and the floor as a limit given a priori. It is a minimal house that enhances the place, a belvedere house, conceived as a refuge that amplifies the landscape, it is a house whose roof, parallel to the plane that supports it, establishes a horizontal vision, with a transparent facade plane that makes it possible for the interior space to join the infinity of exterior space, towards the distant background.Save this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarOn its front facade towards the access road, the house presents a brick wall whose only opening is the access threshold to the interior of the belvedere box. Above the wall, there is an apparently flat “tile roof”, whose slope is hidden between the metal beams that sit on the wall. The construction of the form is the methodical and rigorous result of the skillful handling of the elements and their relationships, which are not the fruit of the imagination or creativity of the workgroup of the house “Dos Guaduas”, but of the great masters who preceded our work, Coderch, Breuer, Mies, Wright, Kahn and the solid, proven and forceful vernacular architecture.Save this picture!© Marcos Javier Jiménez,Santiago BalcázarProject gallerySee allShow lessLiving Screen House / CplusC Architectural WorkshopSelected ProjectsEcocasa Atelier / Encaixe Soluções AlternativasSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: Lafarge Holcim, Andec, Kubiec ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959864/dos-guaduas-house-grupo-a-plus-i-taller-de-arquitectura Clipboard Houses “COPY” Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959864/dos-guaduas-house-grupo-a-plus-i-taller-de-arquitectura Clipboard ArchDaily Ecuador Architects: Grupo A+i Taller de Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project Area:  50 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 CopyHouses•Vilcabamba, Ecuador Dos Guaduas House / Grupo A+i Taller de arquitectura Dos Guaduas House / Grupo A+i Taller de arquitecturaSave this projectSaveDos Guaduas House / Grupo A+i Taller de arquitectura Photographs Lead Architects: Grupo A+i, Arq.

Reporters Without Borders rebuts President Erdogan’s virulent criticism

first_img Help by sharing this information December 23, 2014 – Updated on May 6, 2019 Reporters Without Borders rebuts President Erdogan’s virulent criticism April 2, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Türkçe / read in TurkishAfter attacking the European Union for criticizing this month’s police raids against supporters of Islamic cleric Fethullah Gülen, President Erdogan delivered a lengthy, frontal attack on Reporters Without Borders (RSF) at a news conference on 20 December, four days after the release of RSF’s annual round-up.Erdogan accused RSF of pillorying Turkey by classifying it as one of the countries where journalists suffered the most threats and physical attacks this year while saying nothing about the abuses committed by the Israeli or Egyptian authorities or by European Union member countries.“We can provide President Erdogan with details of the 117 cases of attacks and threats against journalists registered this year in Turkey,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Do we need to point out that RSF is an independent and impartial NGO whose findings are based on precise methods and facts it can support? The Turkish president’s comments show yet again that he thinks a conspiracy lies behind every criticism. His accusations against us betray the same hostility to pluralism that he shows towards Turkish journalists who are not fortunate enough to please him.”A point-by-point rebuttal of Erdogan’s claims follows:President Erdogan criticized the round-up for reporting that “seven journalists were killed in Palestine” without stressing Israel’s responsibility, which “created the impression that these journalists were killed by Palestine.” Saying “Israel is to blame for the deaths of 16 journalists,” he suggested that RSF tried to spare the Israel military by saying nothing about its role and minimizing the number of its victims. FALSEIn press releases published at the time, RSF clearly pointed out the Israeli military’s responsibility in the deaths of 15 journalists and media workers during its operations in the Gaza Strip in July and August of 2014. These press releases condemned the targeted and indiscriminate air strikes and bombardments affecting the media and demanded proceedings against those responsible. In accordance with its usual procedure, RSF established that, of these 15 victims, seven journalists and two media workers were killed in connection with their work. As clearly stated, it is these nine journalists and media workers who are included in the RSF “press freedom barometer” and annual round-up.Both the barometer and round-up classify journalists killed under the name of the country where they died. This statistical convention assumes nothing about the responsibility of the authorities that control these territories. At no time did RSF imply that the Palestinian authorities were to blame for these deaths. “Why didn’t you make a fuss when dozens of journalists, including Turkish reporters, were detained in Egypt, when the Anatolia news agency’s journalists were attacked or harassed? Erdogan asked. FALSE Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor Organisation Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News Follow the news on Turkey RSF_en center_img The annual round-up that is the target of Erdogan’s anger points out that the second largest number of journalists arrested in 2014 was in Egypt. RSF issued 18 press releases this year about abuses against journalists by Egyptian President Sisi’s government. RSF is taking an active part in the worldwide campaign for the release of Al-Jazeera journalists who have been jailed as part of the Sisi regime’s witchhunt against the Muslim Brotherhood. And RSF often highlights the fate of other detained journalists who have received less media attention.It is also wrong to say that RSF ignored the harassment of the Anatolia news agency’s reporters, who are regarded as Turkish officials by the Egyptian government. RSF has also condemned the physical attacks that Anatolia journalists have suffered at the hands of the Turkish police when protests were being brutally dispersed – attacks that we have not heard Erdogan comment on.RSF “defends members of illegal organizations who are guilty of killing a police officer in Turkey and restricting the freedom of persons, but it turns a blind eye to what happens within the EU.” FALSEWhat is he talking about? If the president, who is supposed to be the constitution’s guarantor, is referring to the arrests of journalists and a media owner during the raids on pro-Gülen media on 14 December, he has a strange view of the presumption of innocence. You just have to visit the RSF website to see that we often draw attention to violations of freedom of information within the European Union. In November and December, we put out press releases about Italy, Greece, France, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, Poland, Iceland, Portugal and Spain.Reporters Without Borders defends freedom of information in Turkey regardless of who is in power. It defended it when there was a military government and it has continued to defend it ever since the Justice and Development Party (AKP) came to power. During Erdogan’s initial terms as prime minister, RSF often hailed his government’s reforming agenda. In recent years, RSF has also taken note of the various judicial reform packages and the conditional release of most imprisoned journalists. But despite these gestures, freedom of information has declined considerably in Turkey, which is now ranked 154th out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.(photo : bianet.org) TurkeyEurope – Central Asia to go further News April 2, 2021 Find out more News Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has lambasted the 2014 Reporters Without Borders round-up of abuses against journalists, accusing the Paris-based NGO of criticizing his country as part of a political “campaign” that it is said to be orchestrating against him.
