There are two islands where no people live, called Chagui-do and Wa-do near a small village, Yongsu-ri, located in the west coast of Jeju Island. Staring at these two islands at certain point, they look magnificent and mysterious like a humpback whale in a legend that came up on the surface to take a breath. STAY1METER is located at this certain point.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Lee ByunggeunSave this picture!© Lee Byunggeun1 meter in the name not only means that it is built on 1m high from the ground but also means that the distance of mind to enable a light, pleasant day away from one’s daily life. 1m from the ground and daily life. The name literally states the beginning and the complete space of STAY1METER. STAY1METER embraces a variety of scenery toward all directions. To the west, there are Chagui-do and Wa-do where the sun goes down. To the south, Dangsan-mountain boasts its elegant view. To the east, you can see the Halla mountain from far. In autumn, you also can enjoy the garden of silver grasses making a pearly wave with their flower stands and night sky with the shining stars on the rooftop.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunThe design of the building begins with the consideration of how a house should look like, standing in the middle of a huge field and facing the sea. A horizontal roof is devised not to disturb the beautiful scenery surrounding the house. STAY1METER looks like a boat from a distance, floating around silver grass and wheat field. You can see the sunset clearly and the light fills the every corner of the house.Save this picture!Section 01Save this picture!Section detailA Hackberry welcomes you at the entrance as the symbol of this house. There are two bedrooms at the both ends of this long-oval-shaped 1-story house and each of them is connected to a secret space. the northern side bedroom leads to an outdoor bathtub surrounded by an oval-shaped wall and the southern side one is linked to fully opened outside area. The middle space is equipped with the living room and the kitchen. Especially, it enables to have a cozy space and comfortable view toward outside by lowering the floor of the living room. Since one side of the house, toward the sea, is all glass, the scenery and daily life are naturally blended in the flow of the time and the change of the season, while the house reflects the sunlight and it goes into the surroundings.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunThere are a small swimming pool with the same height of the sea level and an outdoor table with the height of the silver grass. The height, color and texture of the material of outdoor facilities, the garden and even the parking space are planned to make harmony with the surroundings. There is a circular staircase which leads to the rooftop where you can enjoy a panoramic view. All the furniture in this house are produced through collaboration with ‘ByBigtable’. Some furniture combines a lighting and a tray which completes a unique design, only in STAY1METER. The small sea in the garden are made by ‘DewSong Place’, fabric design is done by ‘Milmuah’, technical consulting about lighting by ‘LIMAS’ and the stay is managed by ‘Stayfolio’.Save this picture!© Lee ByunggeunProject gallerySee allShow lessResidence C / KC Design StudioSelected ProjectsHouse in Tezukayama / Fujiwaramuro ArchitectsSelected Projects Share STAY1METER Homestay / Z_Lab CopyHouses•Jeju, South Korea ArchDaily Photographs Manufacturers: DADA brick, G.A.U Archi Factory, LOOKS, Terraco Korea, Varon Materials Lighting: Projects G.A.U Archi Factory “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936673/stay1meter-homestay-z-lab Clipboard Architects: Z_Lab Area Area of this architecture project Area:  100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Lee Byunggeun+ 27Curated by Hana Abdel Share South Korea LIMAS 2018 Construction: STAY1METER Homestay / Z_LabSave this projectSaveSTAY1METER Homestay / Z_Lab ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/936673/stay1meter-homestay-z-lab Clipboard Houses CopyAbout this officeZ_LabOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJejuOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on April 02, 2020Cite: “STAY1METER Homestay / Z_Lab” 01 Apr 2020.

Spanish photographer released on same day he was kidnapped

first_img PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders said it was extremely worried by the kidnapping of Emilio Morenatti, a Spanish photographer with the US news agency Associated Press, in the Gaza Strip this morning.“We firmly condemn Morenatti’s abduction and we call on the Palestinian authorities to do everything possible to get him released quickly,” the press freedom organisation said. “He is the eighth journalist to be kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since the start of the year. All were freed safe and sound but no investigation has ever been concluded and none of the kidnappers has been punished.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Journalists have become a favourite target of the armed groups that operate in Gaza with a disturbing degree of impunity.” The organisation wrote to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in August voicing alarm about the climate of violence for journalists in Gaza and demanding effective measures to ensure their safety.Morenatti, 37, was kidnapped by four masked gunmen as he left his home in Arrimal, in the western part of Gaza City. His assistant, Majid Hamdan, said they stuck a gun to his head as he waited for Morenatti in an Associated Press car outside, taking his keys and mobile phone. Then they drove off with Morenatti in a white car. No group has so far claimed the kidnapping. Help by sharing this information News News June 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders voiced relief today after learning that Spanish photographer Emilio Morenatti was freed yesterday evening, after being held for less than a day by the gunmen who kidnapped him outside his Gaza City home yesterday morning. The authorities have not revealed the identity of his kidnappers. The press freedom organisations called for a transparent investigation.“Journalists are not bargaining chips for use in settling scores,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Eight journalists have been kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since the start of the year, so it is vital that the authorities send a clear message by arresting Morenatti’s abductors.”Morenatti, who works for the US news agency Associated Press, was taken to a small room and held there for four hours by his kidnappers, who never removed their masks. He was then transferred to another location, dressed as a woman in a long veil. The Palestinian security services meanwhile contacted his kidnappers and got them to release him shortly before midnight. ————————————————————— 24.10.2006 Spanish photographer kidnapped by gunmen in Gaza WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Spanish photographer Emilio Morenatti was freed late last night in Gaza.

How will Damian Jones fare as the Warriors’ starting center?

first_imgOAKLAND – The Warriors gush about Damian Jones’ qualities as quickly as he moves with his 7-foot, 245-pound frame.“He’s obviously a physical force of nature,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s powerful and explosive.”The Warriors rave about Jones’ attributes with his post presence, his passing, his work ethic and his inviting personality. No wonder the Warriors drafted him at No. 30 in the 2016 NBA Draft.“It’s great to see how aggressive he’s become, especially on the offensive glass …last_img

Tackling Africa’s gender gap

first_img5 June 2008Top female and male leaders from across the continent launched an Africa Gender Parity Group at the World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town on Wednesday.The group of business, government, media, academic and civil society decision-makers are collaborating on ways for companies and countries to eradicate gender inequality and better engage women in the economy.“Women account for a sizeable portion of Africa’s economies and could contribute considerably more if there were greater gender equality,” Saadia Zahidi, head of the World Economic Forum’s Gender Parity and Women Leaders Programme, said in a statement on Wednesday.“The Africa Gender Parity Group believes both women and men need to work together to close the gender gap, and thus better leverage women’s talents to increase productivity and prosperity in all of society.”Africa lags behind most parts of the world in closing its gender gap on education and health, but is well ahead of many emerging regions on closing the gap in political empowerment.In the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, which ranks 128 countries according to the size of their gender gaps, the performance of sub-Saharan African countries varies greatly.South Africa, ranked 20, is a leader in the region, boosted by its scores on the political empowerment of women. However, the region also contains some of the lowest-ranking countries in the world, including Zimbabwe (88) and Nigeria (107), hampered by particularly poor performances in the areas of education and health.The Africa Gender Parity Group, at its first meeting in Cape Town on Wednesday, called for: Greater government commitment and funding for primary, secondary and tertiary education, focusing in particular on increasing the retention rates for girls.  Better legislation to fight discrimination against women, including in the area of property rights, and effective implementation of this legislation.  A comprehensive overview of the policies and programmes that have been effective in narrowing gender gaps in the region’s best performing countries, and a transfer of these best practices to low performing countries. Members of the group include:Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Deputy President of South AfricaLinah K Mohohlo, governor of the Bank of BotswanaJay Naidoo, chairman of the board, Development Bank of Southern AfricaElisabeth Tankeu, trade and industry commissioner for the African UnionReuel Khoza, chairman of Nedbank, South AfricaAmadou Mahtar Ba, president of AllAfrica Global Media, USAMandisi Mpahlwa, South African Minister of Trade and IndustryWilliam Mzimba, CEO of Accenture, South AfricaNku Nyembezi-Heita, CEO of ArcelorMittal South AfricaNdi Okereke-Onyiuke, CEO of the Nigerian Stock ExchangeGisele Yitamben, president, Association pour le Soutien et l’Appui a la Femme Entrepreneur, CameroonNyasha P Zhou, CEO of PG Industries (Zimbabwe)SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

The Chromebook Pixel Is Doomed By A Major Identity Crisis

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts taylor hatmaker When they were introduced, Chromebooks made sense as a Google-branded evolution of the netbook for the tablet shy. But in 2013, consumers still don’t understand why there are so many versions of Android – much less what Google’s Chrome OS is or who it’s for. With the Chromebook Pixel, Google’s cloud-happy notebooks have created a full-on identity crisis. (See also Google Chromebook Pixel: Bold, Beautiful And Very, Very Expensive)Chromebooks Are Already ConfusingFollowing a leaked video and a typically detail-sparse report from The Wall Street Journal, Google has launched the Chromebook Pixel, an HD touchscreen notebook that will run on its Chrome operating system and retail starting at $1,299. The Pixel, with its high price and Google-built bare bones operating system is an odd bird. With a 239-pixels-per-inch display, the aptly-named Pixel one-ups Apple’s 13″ Retina MacBook Pro and its (paltry!) 227 PPI seemingly just for the hell of it. Oh, and it’s a touchscreen, too, meaning you can smear your fingerprints all over that beautiful display.The touchscreen means that beyond “taking on” the Retina MacBooks, Google’s Chromebook Pixel will also compete directly against Microsoft’s over-hyped, overpriced Surface tablets. But for all the buzz around hybrid devices that blur the line between notebooks and tablets (Lenovo Yoga, anyone?), consumers don’t seem to have the same hunger for them that they have for “pure” tablets. The advent of the touchscreen notebook was a weird side effect from 2010-era iPad panic – there’s no evidence that consumers even want a device that combines the power of a laptop with the finger-friendliness of a tablet. And if there was, a pricey notebook with a kajillion pixels running on the hamstrung Chrome OS probably wouldn’t be it.Missing The (Price) Point  Want a powerful notebook with a (pretty) nice screen for around $1,200? Buy the $1,199 13″ MacBook Air. Want to spend a little less for a slightly weirder device, or hung up on Windows 8 for some reason? Buy a Surface Pro. Drunk? Buy an Ultrabook!Google has gained market share in recent times by offering well-built, affordable alternatives. Android tablets like the Nexus 7 and even existing entry-level Chromebooks can chip away at the competition because Google can afford to undercut the its competitors on price – the most important spec of all. The Chromebook Pixel seems to have forgotten that lesson. At $249 and $199, the existing Chromebook line is a smartly priced alternative for users heavily invested in Google’s cloud ecosystem. Starting at $1,299, Google’s touchscreen Chromebook Pixel can only hope to attract inebriated would-be power users who wandered into the wrong aisle of Best Buy.On the Venn Diagram of people who need a serious computer and people willing to put up with the limitations of the Chrome OS, that little center slice is altogether empty.Photo by Mark Hachman.center_img Tags:#Android#Chrome#Chromebooks#Google#tablets What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Sorry Paul Miller, Quitting The Internet Was A Dumb Idea

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Related Posts Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos dan rowinskicenter_img Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#Internet#Pause Paul Miller, a technology writer for The Verge, performed a curious experiment over the last year: He quit the Internet. Miller replaced his smartphone with a feature phone. He got his news through TV and newspapers. He embarked on what he thought would be a liberating journey to find himself and a life not dominated by the immediacy of information and communication.What he ultimately found was himself. Warts and all.Noble But NaïveMiller’s experiment, while noble, reeks of naïveté. People like to think they can change the way they are by changing their circumstances. Oftentimes somebody will move to a new city and say, “I am going to be a whole different person now.” It rarely works that way. Real behavioral, emotional and characteristic change is not something that happens overnight.At first, Miller’s experiment started well. He biked more, got outside and found that his attention span was longer. Life without the Internet, he found, was oddly liberating. For a little while, at least. Miller writes:A year in, I don’t ride my bike so much. My frisbee gathers dust. Most weeks I don’t go out with people even once. My favorite place is the couch. I prop my feet up on the coffee table, play a video game, and listen to an audiobook. I pick a mindless game, like Borderlands 2 or Skate 3, and absently thumb the sticks through the game-world while my mind rests on the audiobook, or maybe just on nothing.The Law Of Unintended RealityIt is undoubtedly true that the Internet is changing the intricacies of human behavior. This effect is especially pronounced among younger individuals who have known only a life with the Internet ever-available just a swipe or keystroke away.Yet, ultimately, Internet or no, Miller’s own behavioral traits asserted themselves. When I first read of Miller’s yearlong trial, my first thought was to applaud. I respected the project for its experimental and journalistic merits. I have seen other young people that have become disillusioned with the Internet and the life they lead on it and attempted to escape. Former ReadWrite author Jon Mitchell might describe himself that way. But as I thought about it a little more, Miller’s decision to leave the Internet struck me as, to be honest, kind of dumb. I wish there was a nicer word for it. But, instead of trying to cope with his perceived personal deficiencies, he fled from them.  It seems Miller had decided that his sense of self and worth was defined by the Web, so he tried to change things overnight. In the end, he just changed his location.Miller admits to going through the modern psycho-sociological phenomenon known as a “quarter-life crisis.” This period of a person’s life, usually occurring between the ages of 24 to 26, is defined by a lack of definition. The behaviors, world concepts and sense of self built up since the teenage years come in doubt. These 20-somethings face the task of figuring out, yet again, who they really are. Sometimes they key on the notion that what had defined them before is the source of their problems and the best way to fix things is to completely disassociate with their previous life. For Miller, that definition of self stemmed from the Internet. He has lived on the Web since he was 12, earning his livelihood on it since he was 14. I totally get what was going on. My own story is not so different from Miller’s. I started cooking professionally when I was 14. By the time I was in my early 20s, I was a trained chef. By 25, I would’ve given anything to get out of the kitchen and be a different person. Though my experience was not tied to the Web, the framework was similar. While I was able to successfully change careers (to the Web, ironically), I did not change the type of human being I was. Only time did that.The Unexamined LifeThere is a reason that our series on stepping back from from the Internet life is called ReadWrite Pause and not ReadWrite Quit or ReadWrite Disconnect. We realize it is healthy to step away, read a book, write something by hand or just Digital Detox for a couple of days. But we also know the difference between taking a break and giving up.The Internet is what we make of it. Luckily, I have never had a problem turning off the computer to read a long book or go on a long bike ride. I have learned to compartmentalize my digital self from my physical self. The Internet does not define me. It is a part of what I do and what makes me… me. But it is not the core of my existence. Miller, in the end, came to a similar conclusion:But then I spoke with Nathan Jurgenson, a ‘net theorist’ who helped organize the conference [on Theorizing the Web]. He pointed out that there’s a lot of “reality” in the virtual, and a lot of “virtual” in our reality. When we use a phone or a computer we’re still flesh-and-blood humans, occupying time and space.Maybe it’s just me, but that seems kind of obvious.Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock.last_img read more
