This is the first project where Fraher Architects worked alongside their in-house construction company, Findlay Fraher. Together they delivered the project from inception to completion as a design-led, design and build service. Fraher Architects revisited every aspect of the existing building to propose the most efficient use of space whilst creating a strong sense of place within each of the floors. The client wished to fully refurbish the building, adding a lower ground floor and loft extension.Save this picture!© Adam ScottSave this picture!Proposed Lower Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Adam ScottThe location of the existing stairs presented challenges with the vertical route up through the building. The resultant lower ground floor level felt disconnected from the other floor levels. The brief gave Fraher the opportunity to look at relocating the stair core to become a feature piece of furniture, that runs through the center of the building. This enabled spaces to be opened within the plan to provide generous and dynamic living areas. The staircase stretches across every level of the building, providing a dedicated circulation space, whilst maintaining views across each living area.Save this picture!© Adam ScottThe existing coal vaults were opened up and the existing floor was lowered to provide a submerged shower room and utility space to service the House. Every opportunity was made to maximize the internal spaces whilst minimizing encroachment onto the garden.

Crowdfunding campaign for Alan Barnes tops £300k in four days

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 A crowdfunding campaign that aimed to raise £500 to help a disabled man who had been attacked outside his house has raised over £300,000 in four days.Alan Barnes from Gateshead was knocked to the ground by his attacker who tried to rob him. He suffered a broken collarbone. He was so shocked by the attack that he did not want to return to living in his home, and hoped to find somewhere else to live.The Alan Barnes Fund raises £300k in four days on GoFundMe.com.Mr Barnes, 67, was born with sight and growth disabilities after his mother contracted German Measles during pregnancy.The attack on a 4 ft 6″ disabled man was featured in national media included The Mirror. Hairdresser Katie Cutler, 21, who did not know Mr Barnes, was so affronted by the attack that she set up a fundraising campaign, the Alan Barnes Fund, to help him relocate, with the aim of raising £500. She used GoFundMe.com.The appeal was shared online, and has been covered in many national and international media outlets.The fund grew rapidly:• after one day it had reached £50,000• after two days it had raised £100,000• on the morning of the third day it passed £200,000• the £300,000 mark was reached just after 2pm today, the fourth day of the appealDonations were received not just from the UK but from people in other countries as far away as New Zealand.Katie Cutler, also from Gateshead, has herself received praise from many of those donating to the fund.What can fundraisers learn from the success of the Alan Barnes Fund campaign?Once again a fundraising campaign has unexpectedly enjoyed rapid and remarkable growth. What can fundraisers surmise from this campaign?1. It is unusual and not the norm. That is why it is attracting publicity, which is feeding the fund’s continued success. There are more and more examples of successful viral campaigns like #nomakeupselfie and #icebucketchallenge, but they are far from the norm.2. The campaign was established by an individual and not a charity. In addition, this individual did not know Mr Barnes personally, but she did live locally. Can a personal appeal sometimes be more powerful than that of a charity?3. Social media savvy or influence is not always a pre-requisite, but it becomes essential at some point in the campaign. Ms Cutler did not have significant social media follower numbers, but the national news sites that picked up the story certainly did.4. The campaign focused on an individual, not a cause, or a group of people. There was a clear beneficiary.5. The story that generated the giving evoked a sense of injustice in many of those who donated, according to many of the comments they posted on the campaign page. That was a powerful call to action, although of course there are current appeals that promise to address far bigger issues, helping many more individuals. So why did this story evoke such generosity?6. The public understands that lots of small donations can have a big impact. Many donors commented that they could only give a small amount but were delighted to see so many others were giving too.

Texas Tech second-half comeback snaps men’s basketball’s four-game winning streak

first_imgTCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Facebook Previous articlePolitiTalk: aluminium tariffs, AG turmoil, West Wing shakeupsNext articleWomen’s basketball tops Oklahoma, advances to first Big 12 semifinal Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Garrett Podell Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Twitter Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks printGuards Desmond Bane and Kenrich Williams led the Horned Frogs to a hot start in Lubbock Saturday but cold shooting down the stretch and Texas Tech guard Keenan Evans’ 23 second-half points halted TCU’s four-game winning streak, 79-75.“Good win for Texas Tech,”  TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “A tough loss obviously with having the lead we had.  Tough to give that up and Keenan Evans just kept getting to the free throw line down the stretch in the second half. That’s what we talked about: we said we didn’t want him to get to the line, but that’s what he did, so give him credit for doing what he did.”TCU shutout Tech’s Evans, the No. 3 scorer in the Big 12 at 17.2 points per game, in the first half, as he missed both of his shots and didn’t shoot any free throws after picking up a couple quick fouls.TCU guard Shawn Olden (2) blocks Texas Tech guard Keenan Evan’s (23) floater. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe second half was a different story. The senior made all 10 of his free attempts and hit six of his nine field goal attempts en route to his game-high 23 points.“Anybody who gets 10 free throws in the half, good things are going to happen and he got to the basket a lot with drives so we had to put different guys on him because of the foul trouble,” Dixon said. “He just kept getting to the line and made 10, and 10 free throws in a half is a high, high number.”However, the Horned Frogs started strong against the Red Raiders, jumping out to a 12-point advantage, 24-12, with 9:57 left in the first half. TCU established early dominance on the glass, out-rebounding Texas Tech by 10, 16-6, and out-shooting them behind the arc by hitting three of their first seven three-pointers while the Red Raiders only made one of their first four throughout the first 10 minutes of action.“We’ve just really been emphasizing that this season because early in Big 12 play we got off to some slow starts so we’re not letting us do that anymore and that mindset allowed us to jump out to a quick start,” Bane said. TCU guard Desmond Bane drives to the rim against a Texas Tech defender. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Red Raiders would respond, scoring 23 of the last 39 points in the half, which closed the Horned Frog advantage to five, 40-35, at the break.Fouls also plagued the Frogs with forward Vladimir Brodziansky and guard Alex Robinson each called for two fouls, and guard Shawn Olden called for three.“We were in foul trouble and I think that’s what hurt us down the end of the first half,” Dixon said. “Our eight-man rotation is a challenge when Alex and Shawn have foul trouble.”Bane lead all players in scoring at the half with 15 points, and Williams closed in on his twelfth double-double, finishing the first half with 11 points and eight rebounds. The Horned Frogs also had a significant boost in rebounding, hauling 10 more boards than the Red Raiders, 22-12.Texas Tech would eventually come all the way back, tying the game up at 49 with 14:38 remaining on an Evans’ three-point play conversion following a tough layup in traffic over TCU forward Ahmed Hamdy. The Red Raiders grabbed their first lead, 53-52, following a layup from guard Zhaire Smith with 13:25 left to play.Throughout the rest of the game, the two teams stayed within six points of each other, but Evans second-half scoring outburst and the Horned Frogs’ cold shooting ultimately doomed TCU.“I thought our offense was good but we didn’t shoot it great,” Dixon said. “I think in a normal game we’re not shooting five of 23 from three.”Even though TCU missed nine of their last 13 field goal attempts and four of their last six to end the game, Dixon said offense wasn’t the issue Saturday.“We’re going to look at our defense as the issue as to why we didn’t get it done because they shot 50 percent overall, 46 percent from three and 79 percent from the line with way too many free throws,” Dixon said.Four Horned Frogs, Bane, Williams, Brodziansky, Robinson, scored in double-digits Saturday. Bane finished with a team-high 21 points, his third game this season over 20. He has had 10 or more points in 12-straight games.Robinson scored 11 and finished with a team-high seven assists, becoming the seventh player in TCU history with over 400 career assists. At 404, Robinson ranks seventh all-time.Williams notched his twelfth double-double this season and the thirty-third of his career with 11 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. He moved past James Cash for fourth in career rebounds at TCU with 859.Brodziansky had 16 points, moving into the No. 11 spot on TCU’s career scoring list past Mike Jones with 1,338 points as well as 10 rebounds for his third double-double of the season and the seventh double-double of his career.Up NextThe loss dropped TCU to fifth in the Big 12 with a 21-10 overall record and a 9-9 conference record.“We were feeling good, but we lost so now we don’t,” Dixon said. “It’s amazing how one game can change everything. I feel good about where we’re at, but we have to find a way to get better defensively these next few days.”Now the Horned Frogs head to Kansas City for the Big 12 Conference Tournament. TCU, the No. 5 seed, will face No. 4 seed, Kansas State, in the second round of the tournament Thursday at 11:30 a.m. Each of the two teams won the matchup when playing at home.

Two European cartoonists threatened over cartoons with religious and political content

first_img Organisation News Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia In the midst of the reactions of other parliamentary supporters of Hungary’s very conservative government, the pro-government media launched a campaign of intimidation and harassment against Gábor Pápai, a radio station going so far as to call for the publication of his home address because “there are many who would pay him a visit”. News June 4, 2021 Find out more to go further A cartoon by Gábor Pápai that the daily Népszava published on 28 April showed the Hungarian National Public Health Centre’s chief doctor looking at Jesus on the cross and suggesting that many people who had deceased from the coronavirus had already been likely to die because they had suffered with pre-existing conditions. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more In Sweden, Mahmoud Abbas has been the target of thousands of hostile messages on social networks after posting a cartoon on Facebook on 20 April about the collapse of the oil prices. It showed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman fleeing oil barrels rolling down a steep slope. In Saudi Arabia, criticism of the King and the Crown Prince or their policies is considered as an attack against the image of the Kingdom, its institutions, or its symbols. The Palestinian origin of Mahmoud Abbas, who cooperates with Al Jazeera TV on a regular basis, has fuelled even more the online criticism and threats from the Saudis. They accused him of being ungrateful because Saudi Arabia had funded numerous assistance programmes in the Palestinian territories. For the cartoonist that represents a lesser evil, though, given the many messages attempting to discredit him and threatening his life. Personal information about him and his family has been also posted online. That has prompted Mahmoud Abbas to file a complaint with the Swedish police. He says he now lives in “constant” fear for himself and his family and no longer dares to open his door or answer all phone calls.

RSF_en “Unfortunately, it has become more common that foreign state institutions and power groups attack journalists in Sweden,” said Erik Halkjaer, the President of RSF Sweden. “This foreign interference, which threatens free speech and the freedom to inform in Sweden, must not be tolerated.

Two cartoonists, a Hungarian and a Swede, are targeted by violent online harassment campaigns, because they ridiculed religious and political authorities. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the unacceptable pressures that undermine the right to inform in the heart of Europe. Its use of the figure of Jesus sparked an outcry from the representatives of the Christian Democrat Party, an ally of the ruling Fidesz, to the point that the Secretary of State for persecuted Christian communities, Tristan Azbej, accused Gábor Pápai of blasphemy and threatened to sue him or Népszava.

Conviction in landmark case over Syrian government torture

first_img Facebook Conviction in landmark case over Syrian government torture Local NewsUS NewsWorld News Twitter Facebook Twitter Pinterest TAGS  center_img WhatsApp BERLIN (AP) — A former member of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s secret police was convicted Wednesday by a German court of facilitating the torture of prisoners in a landmark ruling that human rights activists hope will set a precedent for other cases in the decade-long conflict. Eyad Al-Gharib was convicted of accessory to crimes against humanity and sentenced by the Koblenz state court to 4 1/2 years in prison. It was the first time that a court outside Syria ruled in a case alleging Syrian government officials committed crimes against humanity. German prosecutors invoked the principle of universal jurisdiction for serious crimes to bring the case that involved victims and defendants who were in Germany. German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said the trial was a step against impunity in the conflict. His country has given refuge to hundreds of thousands of Syrians fleeing violence and hardship in their homeland, and backed international efforts to collect prosecutable evidence of crimes in Syria. But Russia and China have used their vetoes to block attempts by the U.N. Security Council to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court. “That’s why the cases outside Syria are big bright spots, but also a clear signal to the victims … that they shall get justice,” Maas told The Associated Press. Al-Gharib could have faced more than a decade behind bars, but judges took into account mitigating factors, including his testimony to German authorities investigating the allegations. The 44-year-old was accused of being part of a unit that arrested people following anti-government protests in the Syrian city of Douma and took them to a detention center known as Al Khatib, or Branch 251, where they were tortured. Al-Gharib went on trial last year with Anwar Raslan, a more senior Syrian ex-official who is accused of overseeing the abuse of detainees at the same jail near Damascus. Raslan is accused of supervising the “systematic and brutal torture” of more than 4,000 prisoners between April 2011 and September 2012, resulting in the deaths of at least 58 people. During his pretrial police interrogation, al-Gharib testified against Raslan, implicating him in more than 10 deaths of prisoners. A verdict in Raslan’s case is expected later this year. The court also considered photographs of thousands of alleged victims of torture by the Syrian government. The images were smuggled out of Syria by a former police officer, who goes by the alias of Caesar. “Today’s verdict is the first time a court has confirmed that the acts of the Syrian government and its collaborators are crimes against humanity,” said Patrick Kroker, a lawyer with the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, which represented multiple survivors at the trial. “Testimony by torture survivors and intelligence officers, as well as the Caesar photos, prove the scale and systemic nature of enforced disappearances, torture and sexual violence in Syria,” he said. “The relevance of this evidence extends far beyond the proceedings in Koblenz.” Delivering the oral verdict, the presiding judge made it clear that al-Gharib’s crimes were part of the Syrian government’s systematic abuses against its own population. Syrian officials did not testify during the 60-day trial. The court concluded that al-Gharib’s unit, which was under Raslan’s command, was involved in chasing down and detaining at least 30 people following a demonstration in Douma, and then bringing them to the detention center where they were tortured. Al-Gharib, who had the rank of sergeant major until he defected, left Syria in 2013 and came to Germany in 2018. Both men were arrested a year later. Some rights groups have raised questions about the trial, noting that government defectors like Al-Gharib may not realize that statements they make during asylum applications may be used against them. Mohammad Al-Abdallah, director of the Washington-based Syria Justice and Accountability Center and a former prisoner in Syria, said Al-Gharib was a low-ranking officer with little value in the case against him. He suggested that putting defectors like Raslan and Al-Gharib in prison would please the Assad government, “because this will deter anyone else from defecting or joining the opposition or supplying information to human rights groups.” But Wassim Mukdad, a Syrian survivor and co-plaintiff in Raslan’s trial, said while al-Gharib was “just one small cog in the vast Syrian torture apparatus” the verdict against him was important. “I hope it can shed light on all of the Assad regime’s crimes,” he said. “Only then will the trial really be a first step on this long road to justice for myself and other survivors.” Al-Gharib’s lawyer, Hannes Linke, said the court’s verdict was “in large parts convincing” and that the sentence imposed on his client would “send a clear signal to war crimes perpetrators worldwide.” Linke said he would nevertheless appeal the verdict and ask Germany’s top court to review the lower tribunal’s decision to dismiss al-Gharib’s defense that he acted to avert harm from himself. The European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, which supports 29 survivors in the case against Raslan, of whom 14 are represented as co-plaintiffs in that case, is working to bring further cases against Syrian officials to trial in Germany, Austria, Sweden and Norway. ——— Sarah El Deeb in Beirut, and David Rising in Berlin, contributed to this report.
