first_imgArchbishop of Canterbury urges Commonwealth to put words into action Posted Apr 16, 2018 Anglican Communion, [Anglican Communion News Service] The archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has said that the Commonwealth of Nations will last and be a blessing to the world – if it continues to put its word into action. His comments came in a sermon during a special evensong service at Westminster Abbey April 15, in advance of this week’s Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London and Windsor. He told the congregation, which included government leaders, diplomats, officials and an ecumenical group of church leaders, that the Bible, “in the clearest terms,” sets out the way people are to behave: “It is to raise up the poor, to bring freedom to the captives, to lighten the load of the suffering,” he said.Read the entire article here.

The Pond House at Ten Oaks Farm is a 1,250 square foot, net zero energy retreat located on a 15.5 acre site in Southeast Louisiana. The three-story structure sits over the edge of a pond and overlooks a peninsula of ten oak trees that stretch out into the middle of the pond.Save this picture!© Marc LamkinThe Pond House features an outdoor area on the first floor including a fireplace and outdoor kitchen. The second level houses a living room, kitchen, and dining room that are completely open with panoramic views to the surrounding landscape, and a master suite with an outdoor terrace on the third level overlooks the property. A single-sloping roof sheds rainwater into the pond while also allowing maximum sun exposure for solar panels.Save this picture!© Marc LamkinThe form juts out at a 14 degree angle towards the water and the roof sits perpendicular to the structure. This angle is carried through the house to create a striking contrast between elements such as the kitchen millwork and floor to ceiling windows in the living and dining room.Save this picture!Section 2The facade consists of limestone textured stucco, opaque tongue and groove polycarbonate panels, and two transparent volumes that project out of the second floor blending the residence seamlessly into the landscape. Transparent surfaces reveal a heavy timber frame and also allow the building to become an observation tower offering views to much of the site. At night, the three-story volume comes alive as a glowing lantern emerging from the landscape magically illuminating the water.Save this picture!© Marc LamkinThe Pond House achieves net zero energy capability through active systems employing a high efficiency heating and cooling system, solar energy, spray foam insulation for a tight building envelope, energy star equipment, and LED lighting throughout.Save this picture!© Marc LamkinSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Marc LamkinAlong with utilizing active systems, the Pond House also features passive strategies to achieve a sustainable design through operable windows for cross ventilation, north-south building orientation, natural day lighting, shading strategies, reclaiming materials, landscaping designed for solar and wind changes through the seasons, and managing rainwater onsite.Save this picture!© Marc LamkinSince its completion, The Pond House has been generating instead of consuming energy. Within the mission of creating a sustainable design, this residence is an example that proves energy efficient houses can be comfortable, luxurious places to live. The Pond House is a place where family and friends can come together.

The pedestrian access of the building is through this garden, positioned 3 meters above street level.Save this picture!First floor planThe project proposes two towers, each with 6 single story apartments, ranging from 150 to 212 sqm. These building towers are connected by a central courtyard from which you can access the apartments. Save this picture!© Diana ArnauSave this picture!© Diana ArnauWithin the central courtyard, a wooden deck circulation was designed in a circular form, from where 4 units are accessed in each level. The design of the circle creates 4 triangular shaped terraces, which are part of each of the individual apartments. To delimit these terraces, a prefabricated concrete lattice wall was erected, which also separates these spaces from the neighbor buildings and garden, allowing cross ventilation in the courtyard, through the lattice.Save this picture!Section 1At the center of the circle a 9-meter-high Japanese guava tree was placed, allowing the view of all common areas of the departments to be of this tree, thus creating a relaxing atmosphere.

The parking lot and lobby are located at the basement of the building, which are also connected to the vertical circulation core. This basement is situated at street level, so that vehicular access can be direct and without the need for ramps.Save this picture!© Diana ArnauThe apartments were designed in such a way that the common area adjoins the central courtyard, and the private area – which consists of 3 bedrooms – faces the respective façade of one of the 2 streets that adjoin the project. To promote the privacy of these spaces, a facade with inclined walls was designed to help with lighting and privacy. Vegetation was strategically placed in all the bedrooms as well, which generates green views and helps as a sound barrier to the noise generated in the streets.Save this picture!© Diana ArnauSave this picture!Second floor planSave this picture!© Diana ArnauTo be able to provide open spaces in all departments, each of the 12 units has both balconies and terraces.

The sorority houses are scheduled for completion in the summer of 2017, while the fraternity houses are planned to open a year later.The exhibit featured renderings, miniatures and a computer-animated video of the planned fraternity and sorority houses. Also on display were textures, flooring and paint schemes that will be used.“Something that they wanted me to accomplish at TCU was to rebuild the Greek village, and we are ready to do that,” said Kathy Cavins-Tull, the university’s vice chancellor for student affairs. “I love it. It’s a great investment in our Greek community on campus.”The university will work with the Tulsa-based architectural firm KSQ in the development of the village. The two have had a partnership since 2005.The project will replace the current Greek houses on campus, which were built in the 1960s. Below is an interactive aerial map of the Worth Hills area from October 2014, showing which structures will stay and which ones will be knocked down.编辑触摸共享全屏制作你自己的了解更多此交互式图像使用ThingLink创建。在thinglink.com上查看此图像。接触图片分享图像…全屏The aging Greek housing structures last received renovations in the early 2000s, but they were only meant to be temporary improvements.Sophomore Eliza Stevens currently lives in Beckham-Shelburne Hall where the Kappa Alpha Theta chapter is housed.“It needs a good renovation,” Stevens said. “It’s really outdated. The restrooms and rooms could be better. I had no power in my room for three days once.”Sophomore Tristan Saint, who lives in Martin-Moore Hall where the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) chapter is housed, was also critical of his current residence.“I wish the outside bricking was power washed and cleaned off,” Saint said. “As far as the kitchen area goes, it needs an upkeep.”Cavins-Tull said the new houses will be architecturally improved from the current ones, both on the inside and out.“The exterior of chapter houses will have a bit of a porch, and fraternities will have patios on the back,” Cavins-Tull said. “Housing will be combination of doubles, suites and apartment style, and it will be fabulous.”The university’s associate director for facility planning and construction Harold J. Leeman Jr. said the new fraternity and sorority houses will have a distinct appearance from each other.“Even though we may have more than one chapter in a building, each section of that building will look like ‘I’m going to my chapter and nobody else’s,’” Leeman said. “It’s a different kind of brick or cast stone and it will be really cool.”Students expressed excitement for future fraternity and sorority members that will live in the Greek village.“I’m pumped and I’m so jealous of the people who will live there,” sophomore Ben Taylor said. “I wish I had been born in 1999 so I could have my entire four years there.”The first stage, the construction of the sorority homes, is set to begin in May 2016.

It has not yet been put on the National Assembly’s agenda and cannot be examined by any parliamentary committee until it has. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Mistrust of the police has grown in France as a result of their conduct during the “Yellow Vest” protests that began in October 2018 and during protests against pension reform. The police have repeatedly been accused of using excessive force and, last December, RSF joined 13 journalists in filing a complaint against the police violence to which they were subjected while covering protests. RSF_en As it stands, France’s legislation does not allow the police to object to being photographed or filmed on the street, to request the destruction of photos or video, to prevent photos or video from being broadcast or published, or to arrest anyone simply for photographing or filming them. And they enjoy no special protection under French law protecting a person’s “image rights.” Only the use of photos and video of police working in counter-terrorism, counter-espionage or the special intervention forces is restricted. In RSF’s view, the public’s right to information requires journalists to be able to observe and cover the behaviour of the police and other security forces. It would be extremely difficult for them to systematically render individual police officers unidentifiable by means of pixelating or blurring during live coverage, especially if there were many policemen and they were moving.Drafted with the declared aim of protecting the police from threats, attacks and online harassment, the proposed law would make it very hard for the media to provide live coverage of events with a police presence and, in particular, to provide the public with full information about police conduct as the events are taking place. News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges France’s National Assembly neither to put on the agenda, nor to examine a new bill that would require the media to “make security forces unidentifiable” in any photo or video they publish or broadcast. The proposed law would make it very hard for journalists to cover many public events, which often involve a police presence, and would restrict the information about police behaviour available to the public. Follow the news on France Help by sharing this information RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story “Adoption of this proposed law would constitute a serious violation of press freedom in France,” said Paul Coppin, the Head of RSF’s Legal Unit. “The way to end the abuses and mistrust is to overhaul the rules on policing and overhaul police training, not restrict journalists’ freedom.” FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsProtecting sources EnvironmentJudicial harassment France is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

first_imgPrathaan/iStock(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — A former Federal Bureau of Prisons worker and college lecturer was arrested for a series of “horrific” sex attacks in the Sacramento area in the 1990s — thanks to a novel DNA technique, authorities said.Mark Manteuffel, 59, was arrested at his home in Georgia on Friday, Police Chief Daniel Hahn said at a news conference on Monday. His case was the first in California that was originally filed against a John Doe using only a DNA profile and investigators were able to find him using genetic genealogy, which allowed him to be tracked through family members, according to Hahn.He spent several years in Sacramento while attending Sacramento State University and even worked as a part-time lecturer on law enforcement and criminal at the school, the chief said.Manteuffel worked for the Federal Bureau of Prisons for about 20 years, Hahn said. He retired in 2014 as a correctional institution administrator from a Miami facility, Hahn said.‘Horrific crimes’Between May 1992 and March 1994, three women were victimized in “horrific crimes” by the same sex assault “predator” in Sacramento County, the city of Sacramento and the city of Davis, Hahn said.On the night of May 5, 1992, a 52-year old-woman arrived home, deactivated her alarm and “was almost immediately accosted and assaulted by someone who was lying in wait” inside the house, Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said at Monday’s news conference.She was sexually assaulted for hours until the suspect fled, Jones said.In Jan. 1994, a 22-year-old college student was on an evening jog in a neighborhood in Davis when a masked man grabbed her, used a stun gun on her, dragged her away and “committed monstrous crimes,” said Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig.Then in March 1994, a woman was returning to her Sacramento home when a masked man waiting inside attacked her, Hahn said. She was bound and sexually assaulted multiple times before the suspect fled, Hahn said.DNA was recovered from all three scenes linking the attacks to the same suspect, Hahn said. But the DNA did not match anyone in criminal databases, Hahn said.A John Doe arrest warrantA complaint on charges including torture and rape was filed in March 2000 using the suspect’s DNA as his identity, since his name was not known at the time, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert told reporters Monday. This allowed prosecutors to file charges before the statute of limitations was up, she said.This was the first John Doe arrest warrant with DNA as an identity in California, she said.“That John Doe DNA profile is Mark Manteuffel,” Schubert said. “And when he is brought to Sacramento his true name will be added to that complaint.”New technology cracks the caseNearly two decades after the complaint was filed, genetic genealogy helped identify the suspect as Manteuffel, Hahn said.Genetic genealogy — a novel technique that compares unknown DNA evidence to public genetic databases to identify suspects through their family members — has been called a “game-changer” in the effort to crack cold cases.Since the arrest of the suspected “Golden State Killer” in April 2018, dozens of suspects have been identified through the technology, according to genealogist CeCe Moore, who has appeared as an expert in ABC News 20/20 episodes.After genetic genealogy zeroed in on Manteuffel as a possible suspect, he was found in Georgia, officials said. There authorities surveilled him and recovered DNA from him at a restaurant, officials said.Manteuffel had yet to be extradited from Georgia as of Monday. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
