  • Rugby World Cup city guide to Fukuoka

    first_imgTuesday Sep 17, 2019 Rugby World Cup city guide to Fukuoka The Fukuoka Prefecture on the island of Kyushu is the ninth most populated prefecture in Japan, and one of the nations most outstanding in terms of natural beauty and culture. Fukuoka is seen as a natural gateway prefecture to Kyushu for both commerce and visitors alike.ADVERTISEMENTHakata Station – Fukuoka With access to both the city of Fukuoka and the airport servicing the city, Hakata Station will be the first port of call for many visitors to the area over the span of the Rugby World Cup. The station was first opened in 1889 but was rebuilt in 2011. It is the largest and busiest station in Kyushu and will act as a gateway to other cities in the province for travelling rugby fans.Fukuoka City – FukuokaThe bustling economic hub of Fukuoka is the capital city of Fukuoka Prefecture. It is Japan’s fifth-largest city and the largest city in Kyushu. A city famous for its temples and shrines, it is where you find Hakatanomori Football Stadium, which will host Ireland versus Samoa on the 12th of October, as well as pool games involving France, Italy, Canada, and the USA.ADVERTISEMENTKushida Shrine – FukuokaEven in a city known for its shrines, Kushida Shrine stands out. Right in the heart of the city, the Kushida Shrine is renowned for the central role it plays in the annual Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival.Futamigaura – FukuokaADVERTISEMENTFutumigaura is located in the northern part of Itoshima City, it is also selected as one of Japan’s 100 most Beautiful Beaches and Meotoiwa (Rock Couples) stands approximately 150 meters from the seafront.It has been revered as a sacred place as part of the Sakurai Shrine since ancient times, and it is covered with a 30-meter long, 1-ton heavy lanyard.The sea and the setting sun are beautiful, and the setting sun that sinks between the two rocks on the day of the summer solstice attracts tourists.Sunigoya Brewery – FukuokaThe home of Suginoya Beer, this microbrewery is known for its ales and stouts. A craft beer brewery located in Fukuoka city, the brewery started life out as an off-shoot from a sake distillery that opened for business back in 1870.Mataichi-no-shio – Fukuoka Just outside Fukuoka city, Mataichi-no-shio is home to specialty salt that is made using a mixture of rich minerals found in mountains and the ocean of the Itoshima Peninsula. It is produced in a tranquil factory on the coast that is a must for salt enthusiasts. You can also enjoy a dip in the nearby swimming area nestled beneath Genkai Quasi-National Park.Peace Park – Nagasaki Nagasaki Peace Park is an important park located in Nagasaki, commemorating the harrowing events that saw the atomic bombing of the city on August 9, 1945, by Allied forces.At its north end is the Peace Statue created by sculptor Seibo Kitamura of Nagasaki Prefecture, while visitors can see what remains of the original Urakami Cathedral, which stood just 500 metres from the epicentre from where the nuclear bomb detonated. A sombre reminder of the perils of war and, indeed, violence, it is next to the Atomic Bomb Museum and near the Peace Memorial Hall.Glover Garden – NagasakiIn close proximity to the Peace Park (above) is Glover Garden. The garden was built by Thomas Blake Glover, a Scottish merchant who contributed to the modernization of Japan in shipbuilding and coal mining. The Glover Residence at its centre is the oldest Western-style house surviving in Japan and remains to this day Nagasaki’s foremost tourist attraction.Oura Tenshudo – NagasakiNext to Glover Garden is the Oura Tenshudo – or ‘Oura Church’. Also known as ‘The Basilica of the Twenty-Six Holy Martyrs of Japan’, the church was built in 1864, soon after the end of the Japanese government’s Seclusion Policy in 1853. Two French priests constructed the church in memory of 26 martyrs who were killed in the 16th century.Ouo Shrine AKA Torii in the Sea – SagaThis is an underwater ‘floating’ torii gate which can be found in the Ariake Sea, in the Saga Prefecture. Situated beside the town of Tara-cho, it is a town famed as a place to witness the full power of the moon. A massive 6-metre tide difference has made this one of the prefecture’s most popular tourist destinations.Yutoki Inari Shrine – SagaThe Yutoku Inari Shrine is found in Kashima City, in the southern Saga Prefecture. It is considered one of Japan’s top three shrines dedicated to Inari – the Shinto spirit of sake, rice agriculture and industry. Founded in 1687, the atmospheric Yutoku Inari Shrine is built into the steep hillside of a valley, which will mean a 10 minute uphill climb for visiting rugby fans.Hizen Hamashuku – Saga Hizen Hamashuku is a group of historic buildings standing at the mouth of Hamagawa River. If Sake tasting and restaurants are your main ‘to-dos’ in Japan, than Hizen Hamashuku is the perfect spot for you.Dazaifu Shrine – Fukuoka Among the hundreds of Tenmangu Shrines throughout Japan, Dazaifu is arguably the most important one. Tenmangu Shrines are dedicated to the spirit of Sugawara Michizane, a scholar and politician.  Located just 250 meters from Dazaifu Station, and the entire length of the approach is lined with shops that will cater to rugby fans eager to find the perfect souvenir from this remarkable reliquary.Yanagawa River tour – Fukuoka Known as the ‘Venice of Fukuoka’ – the town of Yanagawa can be found just 50 minutes from Tenjin by train. Here you can relax and unwind with a River tour. The town is surrounded by a network of moats and it is here that small boats weave their way through along the river banks, stopping at points of interest and at local hostelries where rugby fans can enjoy the best local food and drink.Asahi Beer factory FukuokaKirin Beer factory Fukuoka Yuda Onsen Sake FestivalUnder trial ticket (free) application acceptance!TAGAWA COAL MINE FESTIVALUnder the experience course acceptance here!

  • Semi-detached House / Chenchow Little

    first_imgSemi-detached House / Chenchow LittleSave this projectSaveSemi-detached House / Chenchow Little ArchDaily Photographs:  John Gollings, Bart MaioranaText description provided by the architects. The Semi-detached House project involved substantial alterations and additions to an ‘Arts and Crafts’ semi-detached house. Due to the location of the dwelling adjacent to the beach and Sydney’s temperate climate, the starting point for the project was an exploration of ‘interstitial’/ in-between/ veranda space.Save this picture!© John GollingsThrough this process we aimed to depart from the predictable semi-detached house typology characterized by; ‘shotgun’ planning, introverted rooms, small side windows and flat ceilings. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe design involved the addition of a new steel framed superstructure, housing the ‘interstitial’ spaces and the living rooms, above the existing sandstone basement and roughcast rendered bedroom level. The interstitial spaces extend the living areas and incorporate verandas, courtyards, stairways and a circulation path linking the street level to the garden below. Save this picture!© John GollingsA skin of adjustable louvres provides privacy and solar control to the interstitial space. The louvres are applied continuously across the façade. The flanges of the horizontal steel members are reduced to the same visual order as the louvre blades. The viewer experiences the façade as a textural surface without any focal points. Here, we are not interested in breaking down the scale by including discernable features such as window openings or awnings arranged through a formalistic logic of collage or montage. By applying the louvre suite en masse across the whole façade, and carefully detailing its connections, we were able to ‘unload’ the traditional utilitarian interpretation of the device and the material. Save this picture!© John GollingsThe traditional modernist ideal emphasises the separation between ornamentation and function. The separation is not so clear here. The aesthetic role of the louvre is as important as its technical and functional role.Save this picture!© John GollingsProject gallerySee allShow lessOne Bloor / Hariri Pontarini ArchitectsArticlesThe Crimson Collective Launches “Ascension” at the 2010 Coachella Music & Arts FestivalArticles Share Year:  CopyHouses•Sydney, Australia Architects: Chenchow Little Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© John Gollings+ 15 Share “COPY” Houses Projectscenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Australia 2006 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officeChenchow LittleOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSydneyHousesAustraliaPublished on April 16, 2010Cite: “Semi-detached House / Chenchow Little” 16 Apr 2010.

    first_img NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Reporters without borders expressed concern over the assaults on Inving LeftorMagaña, camera operator for Telemundo, a cable television station in HidalgoState (northern Mexico) and Humberto Cásarez, from the daily “Imagen”,published in the city of Fresnillo (Zacatecas State, northern Mexico). In aletter to Interior Minister Santiago Creel Miranda, Reporters without borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard condemned “the increase in the number of assaults and threats against journalists.” He asked Miranda to open an investigation into each case, bearing in mind that state agents may be involved. According to Reporters without borders, there were approximately 15 cases of attacks or threats recorded in 2001.Moreover, Reporters without borders protested the summons by the Acapulco Public Prosecutor’s office served on Maribel Gutiérrez, of the daily “El Sur”, published inAcapulco, in Guerrero State, (southeastern Mexico). Gutiérrez was questionedabout her sources for articles she wrote on the assassination of DignaOchoa, a lawyer and human rights activist. “All journalists questioned aboutinformation gathered while exercising their profession must have their rightto the confidentiality of sources respected,” stated Ménard.”Despite a slow improvement in the press freedom situation, civil servantsand elected officials, who do not accept the press’s role as acounterbalance, continuously subject journalists to acts of intimidation,”Ménard noted.According to information gathered by Reporters without borders, on 24 June 2002, Leftor, a camera operator for Telemundo, was hospitalised after being assaulted by officers from the Pachuca (capital of Hidalgo State) Municipal Police. He fracturedhis left leg. The assault took place while the journalist and 20 otherinformation professionals were covering a demonstration by the AgriculturalWorkers’ Union (Unión de trabajadores agrícolas, UNTA). The protest wasviolently contained by municipal security officers. According to testimonyfrom journalists present at the scene, there was no justification for theassault on Leftor. The journalist has filed a complaint.On 31 May, Cásarez, from the daily “Imagen”, was assaulted by the presidentof the Fresnillo Autonomous University (Universidad Autónoma de Fresnillo,UAF) board of directors, Gustavo Ramos, and Rector Jesús Bonilla Elizondo.The assault occurred after the daily published information on alleged actsof corruption by the UAF directors. The newspaper has filed a complaint withthe Public Prosecutor’s office.Also according to information gathered by Reporters without borders, Gutiérrez, from the daily “El Sur”, was questioned on 12 June by an official from the Acapulco PublicProsecutor’s office, regarding the investigation of lawyer and human rightsactivist Ochoa’s assassination. Gutiérrez was summoned after the 5, 6, 7, 8and 9 June publications of columns in “El Sur”, which reported on Ochoa’salleged murderers. The Public Prosecutor’s Office ignored and did not verifythis information. During her appearance in court, the journalist refused toidentify her sources. A few days before Gutiérrez’s summons, Mexico City andGuerrero State judicial police officers had gone to “El Sur”‘s offices to speak with the newspaper’s director.

The loans totaled around $307 million, and are currently serviced by NewRez LLC, doing business as Shellpoint Mortgage Servicing. The transaction is expected to settle in July 2019.The winning bidders across the three pools include InSolve Global Credit Fund IV, L.P. for the first pool, and Elkhorn Depositor LLC for the second and third pool.Freddie Mac’s NPL sale is part of the FHFA’s three strategic goals as conservator of the Enterprises, including maintaining foreclosure prevention activities and credit availability, reducing taxpayer risk, and building a new single-family securitization infrastructure.As part of the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) effort to build a single security platform, Common Securitization Solutions, LLC along with Fannie and Freddie are to implement the Single Security Initiative on the Common Securitization Platform for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the Q2  2019. As part of this implementation Freddie Mac recently announced that its Investor Reporting Change Initiative (IRCI) will revise Single-Family investor reporting requirements, beginning in May 2019, including moving the investor reporting cycle from mid-month to end-of-month and updating remittance cycles. The FHFA’s 2018 Scorecard Progress Report details these major GSE activities.Freddie Mac states that it is making the changes to promote alignment and industry standards for the Uniform Mortgage Backed Security. In March, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a final rule that requires Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to align programs, policies, and practices that affect the cash flows of “To-Be-Announced” (TBA)-eligible Mortgage-Backed Securities. The agency statement indicated that this is a major step forward. “This rule demonstrates FHFA’s commitment to the success of the UMBS, which will promote liquidity and efficiency in the secondary mortgage market,” said Joseph Otting, FHFA Acting Director.

The note reads that Members of the bar are requested to adhere to a practise consistent with dignity of court which is more important in Indian circumstances like, ‘Sir’. Recently, Justice Arun Kumar Tyagi of the Punjab and Haryana High Court had made a similar request to the bar.Few months back,a Supreme Court bench headed by the Chief Justice of India had taken objection to a law student, who was appearing as a party-in-person, when he addressed the judges ‘Your Honour’. “When you call us Your Honour, you either have the Supreme Court of United States or the Magistrate in mind. We are neither”, CJI SA Bobde told the petitioner. The petitioner was quick to apologize and told the CJI that he will use “My Lords”.Requests By Individual Judges Not To Use ‘My Lord’ And ‘Your Lordship’ Justice K. Chandru of Madras High Court had in 2009 asked the lawyers to refrain from using ‘My Lord’. Last year, Justice S Muralidhar had formally requested the lawyers that they may try and avoid addressing him as ‘your lordship’ or ‘my lord’,”. The Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court, Thottathil B. Nair Radhakrishnan had recently addressed a letter to the officers of district judiciary including members of Registry, expressing his desire to be addressed as “Sir” instead of “My Lord” or “Lordship”. Last year, Rajasthan High Court issued a notice requesting lawyers and those appearing before the judges to desist from addressing the Hon’ble Judges as “My Lord” and “Your Lordship”. ‘Your Lordship’, ‘My Lord’ Colonial Relic; Lawyers may even use ‘Sir’ to address judges – BCI Resolution of 2006 On 6 May 2006, the Bar Council of India published its resolution in the Gazette of India which read as follows: “Consistent with the obligation of the Bar to show a respectful attitude towards the Court and bearing in mind the dignity of Judicial Office, the form of address to be adopted whether in the Supreme Court, High Courts or Subordinate Courts should be as follows: “Your Honour” or “Hon’ble Court” in Supreme Court & High Courts and in the Subordinate Courts and Tribunals it is open to the Lawyers to address the Court as “Sir” or the equivalent word in respective regional languages. Explanation: As the words “My Lord” and “Your Lordship” are relics of Colonial post, it is proposed to incorporate the above rule showing respectful attitude to the Court”. Thus the Rule [Part VI, Chapter IIIA of Bar Council of India Rules] prescribe the use of “Your Honour” or “Hon’ble Court” in Supreme Court & High Courts and “Sir” or equivalent words in the Subordinate Courts and Tribunals. The explanation further states that the words “My Lord” and “Your Lordship” are relics of Colonial post. It is evident from the above Rule that the Bar Council of India has disapproved the use of “My Lord” and “Your Lordship” and has prescribed the use of “Your Honour” or “Hon’ble Court” or “Sir” to address judges. Interestingly, this resolution was taken by Bar Council after considering the observations made by the Supreme Court while hearing a PIL filed by Progressive & Vigilant Lawyers Forum. However, the judgment/order dismissing this PIL on 6 January 2006 could not be accessed. Reportedly, the Court had dismissed the PIL observing that it was a matter to be decided by the BCI as to how the Judges should be addressed. Following this, in 2007, the Kerala High Court Advocates’ Association had unanimously resolved to stop addressing judges as ‘My Lord’ or ‘Your Lordship’.  BCI Rules Don’t Penalise For Addressing Court As ‘My Lord’, ‘Your Lordship’: Punjab & Haryana HC [Read Judgment] Next Storylast_img read more

  • Man arrested after approaching St. Patrick’s Cathedral with gas cans, light fluid

    first_imgTriggerPhoto/iStock(NEW YORK) — A man was arrested in New York City on Wednesday night after he tried to enter a cathedral with gas cans, triggering worries about a possible arson attempt in the wake of a destructive fire at the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.Officers with the New York Police Department said they arrested a 37-year-old man outside of the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral after he entered the building with two gasoline cans, two bottles of lighter fluid and butane lighters. A cathedral security officer stopped the man, who spilled some gasoline on the floor, and alerted counterterrorism officers who were standing nearby. An officer with the NYPD’s Critical Response Command took the man into custody without incident.The suspect is Marc Lamparello, of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey, according to two police sources.There were no injuries reported.“His basic story was that he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue, that his car had run out of gas,” NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller told reporters at a press conference Wednesday night. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.”Sources with knowledge of the investigation told ABC News that the suspect was being treated as an emotionally disturbed person.The man’s intentions were not immediately clear though one police source noted “the timing is odd,” given that we are two days from the fire at Notre Dame. There is no indication the cause of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire was arson.When asked if terrorism was a possible motive, Miller said, “It’s too early to say that. It’s hard to say exactly what his intentions were.”Miller said security had been added in the recent days after the Paris fire.“This is an indicator of something that would be very suspicious,” he said.The famous cathedral, which opened its doors nearly 200 years ago, serves as seat of the New York Archdiocese.The Archdiocese confirmed the incident in a statement to ABC News.“The individual was stopped as he tried to come into the cathedral. Was turned over to the police,” the statement said. “Nothing happened inside the cathedral. Any further info has to come from the NYPD.” The suspect had not been charged with a crime as of late Wednesday night, but he is expected to be held for a psychiatric evaluation, police sources said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
