The context is typical of many mid-sized Swedish towns contemporary development. The plot is prepared for fast and cost-effective construction of a catalogue house. Building your own home here normally comes down to the choice of a style. Save this picture!Spatial Concept“House 669” lands in this context, neighbouring the neofunctional look and across the street a modern mansion sitting on a plot of 600 m2. It is a house built in collaboration with a local catalogue house manufacturer, but sustains the pursuit of living in an environment that supports the families everyday life, including work, play, social life and rest. The volume is archetypical, like a quick drawing of a house. 1 1/2 levels and open to the ridge, it provides a variety of spaces. Save this picture!© Mikael OlssonSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Mikael OlssonBy stripping away the standard materials (3-strip parquet, plasterboard ceilings, laminate window sills etc.) often found in catalogue houses, “House 669” achieve a more tactile material palette.

Reporters Without Borders appealed to pro and anti-government supporters to put an end to attacks against the media and individual journalists Newscenter_img Seven journalists have come under attack in a bloody increase in assaults on the media, as an uprising spread in Haiti.One journalist was shot and badly injured and six others have been assaulted covering demonstrations. Three radio stations have been torched.Reporters Without Borders called on government and opposition supporters to take all necessary steps to end these attacks.On 21 february, Pierre Eli Sem, owner and manager of Radio Hispagnola in Trou du Nord (27 kms southeast of Cap-Haïtien) and correspondent for the private radio station Radio Métropole in the northeast, was in his car when thugs forced their way in and shot him several times, seriously injuring him in the neck and legs. He was described as out of danger. Elie Sem said he had been threatened for several days since he had begun broadcasting news from Radio Métropole on Radio Hispagnola. He decided to broadcast Radio Métropole news bulletins after the management of Radio Cap-Haïtien suspended the bulletins following threats from supporters of the ruling Fanmi Lavalas party. The following day the offices of Radio Hispagnola in Trou du Nord were torched by supporters of the former deputy Nahoum Marcellus. The commando was driven off by anti-government rebels, who arrived on the scene having taking the town of Cap-Haïtien. Groups of demonstrators, protected by the rebels, then began ransacking and setting fire to Radio Africa and Radio Télé Kombit (RTK), belonging respectively to Nahoum Marcellus and Jose Ulysse, a member of President Aristide’s inner cabinet.Other journalists were targeted on 20 February, including several foreigners. Claude Bellevue of Radio Ibo, was hit in the back by shell fragments fired from a 12 calibre gun when he was covering a peaceful demonstration by students in Port-au-Prince. He was attacked by armed groups supporting President Aristide. During the same demonstration a Spanish cameraman suffered an ear injury as a result of a machete blow and a photographer with Agence France-Presse (AFP) was also injured, the agency said.Associated Press (AP), reported that Roberto Andrade, of the Mexican television channel Televisa, and another reporter working for the Mexican network TV Azteca, had to flee when they were stoned by militants, who then chased and caught up with them and forced them to hand over their film.

How I Lost Consciousness :Rufai

first_imgEx-Super Eagles goalkeeper Peter Rufai has opened up for the first time on what might have led to losing consciousness last Monday.The 1994 Africa Cup of Nations winner in Tunisia, who conducted this year’s 3rd Nestle Milo Football Clinic in Ibadan, which ended on Saturday, was rushed to Toki Hospital in Surulere, Lagos, after it was reported that he slumped in his office.Speaking with Complete Sports, Rufai said: “Concerning my losing consciousness, I didn’t know what happened. I was in the office in the evening and having a chat with my younger brother and some of my staff. Before I realized what was happening I found myself at the clinic the following day.But now I’m focused on this project and right now the only thing I see are these children. Seeing these children always gives me the opportunity to say thank you to Nigerians.”He described the death of his mother as devastating and hinted that it might have affected his health.“Actually the passing on of my mum was a kind of devastating blow to me because I remember her saying to me ‘my son I want you to come and see me, if you don’t come, I’m going to come to your office, sit down in your office so that you can see me.’ “I told her ‘Okay mummy I’m coming’, but I had a strategy to go and see her. So it remained just one day for me to go and see her before I got the news of her death. It was like a blow to me but never-the-less, I try to move on, to put together this project and the joy of seeing these children today (Saturday) and also say thank you to Nigerians.”However, the younger brother to the former Deportivo La Coruna of Spain goal tender Bruce, who was also part of the Nestle Milo Football Clinic, stated that what led to his elder brother’s slump may not be unconnected with the demise of their mother.“As the eldest son he has a lot of responsibilities. He used to be mummy’s pet because he was so close to my mum, while I was close to my dad. So I believe it affected him a little. Even I try to be on my feet and I hope we will come over it soon,” he said.Speaking also at the event was Paulo Cardozo who was the expatriate coach for the for the clinic.“It’s good that he is back on his feet after what happened to him. I hope he stays fit because he is a fantastic person, very good professional and a model to all and also he is a very good friend of mine. I wish him all the best.”last_img read more
