first_img Topics: Marketing & affiliates Sports betting Marketing & affiliates Flutter Entertainment-owned Paddy Power has issued an apology over the use of “derogatory and offensive” language in a social media video, following criticism from campaign groups.The video in question was Paddy Power’s ‘Fan Denial’, a weekly round-up of some of the comments posted by fans on social media about a specific game each week.This week’s video was focused on the FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Arsenal, but as highlighted by campaign groups, some comments featured in the episode included homophobic language.Paddy Power admitted that it had “messed up” by including the language, and apologised to anyone offended by the post. The video has since been removed.Kick It Out, an organisation committed to promoting equality and inclusion in football, hit out at the video and called on Paddy Power to remove the content from its social media channels.“The phrase is one that ourselves and LGBTQ+ fan groups have long seen as homophobic and unacceptable,” Kick It Out said. “We urge organisations such as Paddy Power to review the insulting language used within its marketing and gain greater understanding of the impact of discrimination.”Gay Gooners, an LGBTQ+ fan group for Arsenal, also criticised the video, and wrote to Flutter chief executive Peter Jackson to outline its concerns.“We know homophobic language fuels the toxic atmosphere that often makes loyal LGBTQ+ fans feel unwelcome at football,” the letter said. “By including that particular tweet, Paddy Power undermines its own work in challenging homophobia within sport as well as that of groups such as ourselves and our colleagues through Pride in Football.“It is necessary for us to call out discriminatory language and behaviour in football whenever we encounter it, in order to make football a safe and enjoyable experience for all fans. This is especially true when such actions come from a platform as large as yours.”In response to this criticism, Paddy Power said it did not condone the use of such terms, and as soon as the comment was brought to its attention, it deleted the video.“We are very sorry for any offence caused before it was removed,” it said. “We are reviewing our approval processes on content produced by third parties to ensure content on our platform is in line with our values as a brand.“We are very proud of the work we have done around LGBTQ+ issues, and intend to continue being Allies to the community.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Flutter Entertainment-owned Paddy Power has issued an apology over the use of “derogatory and offensive” language in a social media video, following criticism from campaign groups.

This is what I do for a living and I have not made a penny having left early. So please stop the abuse and think of the thousands dying in India each day. It’s called empathy.

Two Halves House is Moloney Architects’ latest residential project. A family home that responds to its clients’ sociable living style, as well as its beautiful bushland surrounds. Named for its split monolithic architectural form, Two Halves house is distinguished by two pavilions that appear to stand alone, but in fact live hand-in-hand.Save this picture!Section 02“The clients wanted their internal living spaces to have a strong connection to the bush surrounds, while also providing them with privacy and a sense of seclusion,” said Moloney Architects Principal, Mick Moloney. The resulting Two Halves design addresses these dual requirements by simultaneously dividing and connecting; separating the ‘public’ open-plan living zone from the privacy and quiet seclusion of its neighbouring sleeping and bathing quarters.Save this picture!© Christine Francis“The two pavilions essentially distinguish the functions of the house, splitting the public and private zones to give the main living spaces the best views and natural light access,” said Moloney.Save this picture!PlanForming the centre of the open living zone is the kitchen with connecting ‘conversation space’ – a communal zone designed for milling and conversing while still feeling a part of the kitchen action. “This space is an extension of a friendly catch-up sitting on stools in the kitchen. We wanted to promote that encounter and extend it beyond the island bench” said Moloney.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisHeightening that connection between the kitchen, living and dining spaces is a purpose-built, low-set bench seat that runs around the room. Guests and inhabitants alike have numerous opportunities for intimate chats and casual, comfortable sit-downs.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisLocated in the adjoining pavilion are the bedrooms and bathrooms. A series of cellular spaces that are minimal in nature, yet intimate and cosy. “Where the public zones are open-plan and outward facing, the bedroom and bathing quarters are designed to be compartmentalised and private. It also reveals something of the clients, in that they value time spent together and were looking to create a living environment which was at once sociable and welcoming, while also offering solace and seclusion,” said Moloney.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisIn designing the interiors, Moloney Architects has applied a uniform birch-faced plywood finish throughout. Warm and tactile to touch, the singular use of plywood reinforces the monolithic form of the interior’s angled ceilings. “It’s an important form gesture that expresses the sculptural nature of the interior architecture, and accentuates the warm heart of the space,” said Moloney. The result is a textural interior that exists as a sculptural expression in its own right.Save this picture!© Christine FrancisProject gallerySee allShow lessTeopanzolco Cultural Center / Isaac Broid + PRODUCTORASelected ProjectsFirouzmandan House / HAMAAN StudioSelected Projects Share Two Halves / Moloney ArchitectsSave this projectSaveTwo Halves / Moloney Architects “COPY” Architects: Moloney Architects Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Gumno (threshing floor) is a circular flattened plateau surrounded by a low stone wall, used for threshing the grains in the past. Gumno was a place of labor, endeavor, and care, and a framework for consistent and coherent social interaction. Gumno served as a space for celebrating a high crop yield, as well as a meeting place where the locals made decisions on important issues that affected their community.Save this picture!© Igor CrnkovićRisika is a small village which lies in the northeastern part of the island of Krk in Croatia. In a rather small area surrounding the village, there is a large number of derelict, overgrown, and rather inaccessible gumnos. Near the old village church, at the end of a line of small family houses, surrounded by a dry stone wall, one finds a small estate and a well preserved old gumno, which has not been in use for the past 40 years.Save this picture!© Ivan DorotićA married couple residing in Rijeka, together with their two adult children, decided to build a little summer house in that special location. It was decided that gumno, together with the circular dry stone wall, should be restored, and that the cultivated garden, driveway, orchard, and olive grove should become a kind of a contemporary park, a reanimated place where the family would meet with their guests, friends, and the locals of Risika.Save this picture!© Ivan DorotićSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Ivan DorotićBecause of this setting, the house is withdrawn into the background, to the highest part of the lot, and built on the very rear setback line. This was made contrary to the initial urban plan which had proposed construction of the house within the building line of the local houses, as well as demolition of the old gumno.Save this picture!© Ivan DorotićIn the initial stage of construction, a proposal was put forward to the inhabitants of Risika: an organized reclamation of the macchia shrubland with the purpose of connecting the remaining gumnos into a spatial ring, and creation of a new walking path which would contain a number of rest areas and meeting points.Save this picture!© Ivan DorotićBesides the gumno in the front part of the lot, and a vegetable garden and an orchard located behind the house, the architecture of the house and the park allows for a spontaneous creation of a unique drive-in plateau for the cars of the owners and their guests. This heterogeneous spatial composition, seen within the context of organization of the new house and a plethora of possibilities of its use, creates unexpected places of strong impressions and different experiences. These places have different characters and conditions of use.Save this picture!© Ivan DorotićThe Gumno house accommodates three completely different contents, long wished for by all family members. The first is a massive, rustic cellar containing a konoba, which serves as a wine and oil storage space, as well as a place for gatherings. The second is a spacious glazed living room intended for the family.  Finally, the third is a big pool with an indispensable view of the sea. On top of the house there are four small units with intimate terraces and a quiet sleeping area for each member of the family. Save this picture!© Ivan DorotićSuch a heterogeneous and spatially diverse program resulted in a house which assembles, blends, and compresses three different ambiances. These ambiances differ in their atmosphere, and are contradictory in regard to their space, functionality, and construction. The heavy, massive, buried, roughly hollowed out basement; the light and transparent, open plan, steel framed ground floor with glazed walls; and the small plastered units with large openings, protruding over the edge of the square ground floor, each in search of its own view and orientation.Save this picture!© Sandro LendlerThe element of the large terrace-deck, a platform for gatherings, which is supported by a massive triangular structure, forms a quiet shadowy terrace for the cellar (konoba), but also a covered house entrance, and a curved staircase, the entrance promenade of the Gumnohouse. On the terrace, placed in a massive concrete cone, there is an irregularly shaped pool, a water cauldron of various depths, containing aquatic attractions, with a precise view onto the Crikvenica – Novi Vinodol Riviera.Save this picture!© Sandro LendlerOn the one hand, the Gumnohouse provides tranquility and calm private use of the vacation house, but, on the other hand, it is easily transformed into a rich structure containing a series of gathering spots for a large number of people, numerous friends of this cheerful and social family.Save this picture!© Maja BosnićWhen the Gumnohouse was finished, everybody was surprised to learn that the family decided to move permanently to what had previously been planned as a ‘’summer house’’, and use their family apartment in Rijeka only occasionally, for short work-related stays.Note: This project was originally published in 30 December, 2014 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/581514/gumno-house-turato-architects Clipboard Projects CopyAbout this officeTurato ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRisikaIcebergCroatiaPublished on August 23, 2019Cite: “Gumno House / Turato Architects” 22 Aug 2019.

We want to make sure NSPCC has the funds to be there for every child who does.”  311 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 14 November 2017 | Newscenter_img 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.

The focus is to develop an audience and insight-led approach to fundraising that leverages the brand positioning ‘Every childhood is worth fighting for’ to grow support and income.Catherine Cherry, Head of Fundraising said:“1 in 20 children experience sexual abuse and 1in 3 don’t tell someone about it. So, when a child is ready to break their silence, it’s important that we are there to listen – even on Christmas Day. A child contacts Childline every 25 seconds and right now our counsellors can only respond to 3 out of 4 children who need our help. The NSPCC relies on the public for around 90% of income and Christmas is our biggest appeal of the year”.Good’s Creative Director, Reuben Turner commented: Advertisementlast_img read more

At least six Ethiopian journalists arrested in past six days

admin No Comments

first_imgNews An Ethiopia’s Amhara Region militia man, that combat alongside federal and regional forces against northern region of Tigray, poses in the town of Musebamb, 44 kms northwest from Gondar, on November 7, 2020. EDUARDO SOTERAS / AFP At least six journalists are currently detained without it being known what they are officially charged with, according to Daniel Bekele, the head of the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission.According to the information obtained by RSF, Bekalu Alamrew has been arrested on 4 November. He is a political reporter for the YouTube channel Awlo Media, who is reputedly very critical of Ethiopia’s current government and a supporter of the opposition Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), now in open conflict with the federal government. RSF has been told that he is suspected of links with TPLF leaders and is accused of inciting revolt. The other is Medihane Ekubamichael, editor-in-chief of the Addis Standard, one of the main English-language weeklies, who is also very critical of the current government. Medihane was released after being arrested on 7 November but was re-arrested on 10 November.The Ethiopian Human Rights Commission says the other four journalists were arrested on the night of 10 November. They are Haftu Gebreegziabher, Tsegaye Hadush and Abreha Hagos of the Ethiopian Press Agency (EPA) and Udi Mussa, a journalist with Oromia Media Network (OMN), a TV channel that was banned under the previous government and whose founder has been jailed for the past several months. None of these four journalists had been allowed access to a lawyer when this press release was published.These arrests have come at a time when the federal government is accusing local forces in the Tigray region of attacking federal army bases, and several military officers have been arrested for alleged complicity in these attacks.Covering the conflict is very hard for Ethiopian journalists and media. Telecommunications have been cut and journalists have been telling RSF for several weeks that they have had difficulties going into the field. The broadcast media regulator had even officially called on media not to cover local elections held in the Tigray region, which the federal government did not recognize.The Tigray authorities no longer recognize the legitimacy of Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who decided to postpone the general elections scheduled in 2020 and 2021 because of the coronavirus crisis.“If these journalists have done wrong, they must be able to answer for their actions without being placed in detention in conditions that remain very secret and in violation of their most basic rights,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We call on the Ethiopian authorities to release them and to not resort to the former government’s methods of arresting journalists arbitrarily. Such methods do not in any way help Ethiopia to respond to the problems it is currently facing.”Abiy Ahmed’s installation as prime minister in 2018 brought major improvements in press freedom.
