This home in a high-density residential district in Tokyo’s suburbs was commissioned by a designer at a large real estate company. The roof and exterior walls are constructed from metallic grey Galvalume which both forms a structural skin and protects the privacy of the residents by shielding the first floor from visibility from the street. A large opening in the roof brings in abundant natural light and makes the compact space feel more expansive.    Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe first-floor entrance offers a view between the staircase and the bathroom clear to the back of the property.

Crude Supply Drop Buoys Oil; Gasoline Futures Fall

first_img Previous articleHouse Delivers Farm Bill to SenateNext articleDiseases from Weather Infecting some Indiana Corn Crops Andy Eubank Home Energy Crude Supply Drop Buoys Oil; Gasoline Futures Fall By Andy Eubank – Jul 17, 2013 Oil futures closed higher Wednesday, buoyed by a drop in U.S. supplies that was nearly three times more than expected, but gasoline futures fell on the back of a surprise rise in the fuel’s stockpiles.Comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke during his first day of Congressional testimony contributed to oil’s up and down price movements, but analysts said the Fed chief said nothing new.Crude oil for August delivery added 48 cents, or 0.5%, to settle at $106.48 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract fell 32 cents on Tuesday.From here, oil may see further gains, “but we feel with the recent strength we have seen, another catalyst would have to develop,” such as one that’s geopolitical or a supply disruption, said Tariq Zahir, a managing member at Tyche Capital Advisors.On Wednesday, the crude-supply drop was a key reason for oil’s rise. The Energy Information Administration reported a 6.9 million-barrel fall in crude stockpiles for the week ended July 12. Analysts polled by Platts were looking for a 2.5 million-barrel decline.The American Petroleum Institute late Tuesday had reported a decline of 2.6 million barrels.The EIA draw “wasn’t as large as the last 2 weeks,” said Zahir. “Couple that along with rather large builds in gasoline and distillates, that more or less offset the draw in crude.”The EIA reports in the previous two weeks had shown a total decline of roughly 20 million barrels in crude inventories.The oil trading market is “probably looking at other themes right now, and some of the low inventory theme has already been priced into WTI oil at this time,” said Richard Hastings, a macro strategist at Global Hunter Securities.On ICE Futures in London, prices for the September Brent crude contract  added 47 cents, or 0.4%, to $108.61 a barrel. The August contract expired on Tuesday.Gasoline prices, meanwhile, fell, marking only their second session decline in seven.The EIA reported that gasoline supplies rose by 3.1 million barrels, while distillate stockpiles, which include heating oil, gained 3.9 million barrels. Gasoline stockpiles were expected to be unchanged for the week, while forecasts called for an increase of 1.8 million barrels for distillates.August gasoline edged down by more than 2 cents, or 0.8%, to close at $3.11 a gallon, while August heating oil closed up over 2 cents, or 0.8%, at $3.07 gallon on Nymex.The market saw a hefty gain in unleaded-gasoline supplies along with weaker demand for gasoline and “we do expect demand to be weak as prices are starting to rise for the public at the pump,” said Zahir.As for Bernanke, Zahir said there wasn’t anything surprising in the Fed chief’s first day of testimony to Congress.In prepared remarks to a congressional committee Wednesday, Bernanke said the Fed’s proposed timetable for tapering its $85 billion-a-month bond-buying program is not set in stone.Ahead of the close of Nymex oil trading Wednesday, crude prices briefly pulled back. The Fed said its so-called Beige Book assessment showed that the U.S. economy is continuing to grow at a “modest to moderate” pace.Elsewhere in the energy complex Wednesday, natural gas for August delivery settled down nearly 5 cents, or 1.3%, at $3.63 per million British thermal units.The EIA will provide an update on weekly natural-gas supplies on Thursday. Analysts polled by Platts are looking for a climb of between 66 billion cubic feet and 70 billion cubic feet.Source: www.marketwatch.com Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Crude Supply Drop Buoys Oil; Gasoline Futures Fall SHARElast_img read more

Grenade attack on newspaper columnist’s home, no one hurt

first_img PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Organisation Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago August 10, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Grenade attack on newspaper columnist’s home, no one hurt Reporters Without Borders is concerned for the safety of Ilocos Times columnist Steve Barriero following a 31 July grenade explosion outside his home near Laoag City in Ilocos Norte province, 400 km north of Manila, in which no one was hurt.Barriero has said he suspects the grenade attack was carried out at the behest of Marynette Gamboa, the mayor of the nearby town of Dingras, who was the subject of a column he wrote on 25 May referring to her as a “fugitive” from US justice.”This murder attempt is evidence of the danger Barriero is still running”, Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must investigate this attack with the aim of identifying and arresting those who ordered it. The possible implication of local officials must not be allowed to obstruct the investigation.”In his 25 May column for the Ilocos Times, a regional weekly, Barriero said Gamboa was wanted by the police in Ventura County, California, for possession of counterfeit US dollars and checks. He quoted reports in the Los Angeles Times to support his claim.Gamboa subsequently denied breaking any US law or being a fugitive in an interview published in the Ilocos Times on 29 June. After the grenade attack, she told the Centre for Media Freedom and Responsibility that she suspected that Barriero had himself staged it in order to be able to accuse her.An Ilocos Times columnist for the past six years, Barriero hired a bodyguard a month ago after a local official warned him he might be targeted.

New UN resolution – RWB calls for a special adviser

first_img Reporters Without Borders hails today’s adoption by consensus of a new resolution on the safety of journalists by the UN General Assembly’s Third Committee. RWB also calls for the appointment of a special adviser to the secretary-general to ensure that it is effectively implemented.Proposed by France, Greece, Austria, Argentina, Costa Rica and Tunisia and co-sponsored by more than 80 countries, the resolution is due to be definitively approved by the General Assembly next month.The resolution contains similar advances to those in last year’s General Assembly resolution on the same subject but goes further on several points, namely in the range of abuses against journalists identified, on combatting impunity for crimes against journalists and on surveillance of their communications.“This new resolution is positive,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “International resolutions are being adopted that are moving in the same direction, at least on paper, namely towards more security for journalists. “But the reality on the ground has not changed. Journalists are still vulnerable and are still being targeted in connection with their reporting. A total of fifty-nine journalists have been killed since the start of the year. Governments must be required to provide an account of their concrete efforts to protect journalists and combat impunity.”Deloire added: “The annual reports by the UN secretary-general and UNESCO on the safety of journalists provide an overview but we need to go much further. We call for the appointment of a special adviser to the secretary-general to monitor whether governments are complying with obligations in this area.”Following in the wake of the resolution adopted on 18 December 2013, the new resolution reaffirms the concept of journalism as an activity that is evolving and now includes not only professional journalists but also “private individuals and a range of organizations that seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, online as well as offline.”It reaffirms the obligation to protect journalists in both wartime and peacetime and stresses the need to “create and maintain, in law and in practice, a safe and enabling environment for journalists” and to conduct “impartial, speedy, thorough, independent and effective investigations” into attacks against journalists and other news providers.The resolution lists all the human rights violations and abuses that constitute a threat to the safety of journalists, not only killing, torture and enforced disappearance but also “arbitrary arrest and arbitrary detention, expulsion, intimidation, harassment, threats and other forms of violence.”Reinforcing governments’ obligations to combat impunity, it mentions the June 2014 UN Human Rights Council panel on the safety of journalists, at which the special rapporteurs criticized a lack of political will on the part of governments, it points out that attacks against journalists are on the rise and it describes the fight against impunity as the “biggest challenge” for journalists’ safety.Paragraph 8 urges governments to cooperate with UNESCO on a “voluntary basis” and to share information about investigations into attacks against journalists, while paragraph 7 refers to the good practices identified in the Human Rights Council resolution of 25 September 2014.Like the Human Rights Council one, today’s resolution stresses “the particular vulnerability of journalists to becoming targets of unlawful or arbitrary surveillance or interception of communications in violation of their rights to privacy and to freedom of expression.”It also calls for the release of all journalists who are being held hostage or who are the victims of enforced disappearance and says that not only journalists but also their families should receive compensation for acts of violence.The creation of the post of special adviser to the UN secretary-general on the safety of journalists was one of the recommendations on the safety of journalists that Reporters Without Borders published on 14 September.On 2 November, International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists, Reporters Without Borders drew attention to ten emblematic cases of impunity with the aim of aim of involving the general public and stepping up pressure on governments to bring those responsible for these crimes to justice.The ten cases are presented on this special website: http://fightimpunity.org News November 21, 2014 – Updated on January 25, 2016 New UN resolution – RWB calls for a special adviser Help by sharing this informationcenter_img Organisation RSF_en last_img read more

Government orders TV station to close and threatens other media

The station then removed the interview from the site. Lessin reportedly forbade the television station NTV to broadcast a similar interview.”The anti-terrorist battle must not restrict press freedom in Russia,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “Russians have long been deprived of credible and independent news about the war in Chechnya. This censorship must not be extended to episodes like the theatre kidnapping,” he said.The Russian parliament last week approved a bill sharply curbing the media’s right to report on anti-terrorist operations and banning them from broadcasting the statements of terrorists.

Moscow protest spreads wide after police block original plan

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – January 31, 2021 WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Facebook Local NewsWorld News Facebook MOSCOW (AP) — The Moscow police plan to stifle an opposition protest by clamping down on the center of the city backfired — not only did the massive demonstration take place, but it was spread throughout a wide swath of the city. Moscow police always come out strong for unauthorized protest gatherings, but the plan for Sunday’s demonstration demanding freedom for jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny was especially anathema symbolically. It was to start on Lubyanka Square, where the Federal Security Service that Navalny accuses of poisoning him is headquartered, then march a half-kilometer to the presidential administration building, about as close to the levers of power that a protester could get without breaching the Kremlin’s walls. Police responded to the provocative plan by closing seven subway stations in the vicinity and restricting pedestrian traffic in a large trapezoid from Red Square to Lubyanka, an area that contains many tourist sights and some of the city’s best shopping. On Sunday, journalists were able to reach Lubyanka, but few people who looked like potential protesters could get there. An hour before the action was to start, Navalny’s team told protesters via a messaging app to head to two still-open subway stations. After police detained some protesters and drove others away from the stations, the Navalny team told people to go to the square fronted by three of the city’s long-distance train stations. More detentions took place on the square and its fringes. Thereafter, the throngs set out for the Matrosskaya Tishina jail, where Navalny is held. Once repelled by police there, many headed back to the stations area. In all, a demonstration that could have been contained in a relatively small area and observed by few who weren’t participating, the demonstrators spread their message across much of central Moscow, attracting considerable attention along the way with their chants of “Putin, resign!” and “Putin, thief!” — a reference to an opulent Black Sea estate reportedly built for the Russian leader that was featured in a widely popular video released by Navalny’s team. On surging main roads and even side streets, passing drivers laid on their horns and flashed victory signs out the window, indicating that support for Navalny and dismay with President Vladimir Putin has spread well beyond the mostly young people who were motivated to navigate the icy sidewalks. Although Putin and other officials have likened the protesters to terrorists, what Muscovites saw from their windows as the throngs passed was a stream of people better-behaved than the average crowd of soccer fans. The only vandalism observed on the trek were slogans traced on snow-dusted car windows: “Putin is a thief” and “PTN PNKh,” the text-speak version of a profane insult of Putin. More than 1,600 people were reportedly arrested in Moscow, including Navalny’s wife, Yulia, but there were few visible attempts to provoke police. Many of those who were grabbed and forced into police vehicles seemingly were picked at random. Across the country, more than 5,000 people were detained. As helmeted riot police chased some marchers into a subway station toward the end of the demonstration, a woman having a cigarette laughed and said: “Is today a Russian holiday?” For the demonstrators it wasn’t a holiday, but they may feel encouraged by how police tactics gave them an inadvertent opportunity to show their determination.center_img Twitter WhatsApp Moscow protest spreads wide after police block original plan Pinterest Previous articleSalah ends goal slump, leads Liverpool to 3-1 win v West HamNext articleFreestyle skier takes time to reflect each May 8 after crash Digital AIM Web Support TAGS  last_img read more
