C-Q Project / JSª

first_imgArchDaily Photographs:  Sandra PereznietoSave this picture!© Sandra PereznietoText description provided by the architects. Located in the district of Miraflores in Lima, Peru, the project is a building with 7 apartments, with one apartment per level. The rectangular site has an area of ​​560 m2 overlooking one of the characteristic Miraflores urban parks. The project is 1.50 m above street level and setback two meters from the street, this results in a much broader sidewalk, more subtle to the city. 6 apartments approximately 340 m2 and an additional penthouse about 540 m2 are designed.Save this picture!Access Floor PlanThe lobby area connects to the vertical circulation and a first ground floor apartment. The first apartment has a terrace linked to the park but subtly separated from the public space, addressing relationships between interior and exterior. The terraces of each apartment on the facade toward the park have a gradual inflection that orients the views to the deepest view of the public park.Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoThe concept aims to articulate public living areas in the apartments connected to the park through a circulation core, kitchen and services for the secondary bedrooms and living room. A series of fixed mullions in one of the interior facades allow to blur and address relationships between apartments, generating visual privacy and framing views.Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoThe living room, kitchen and master bedroom are mostly oriented to the park. Each of the apartments went through a process of direct customization with owners from a base typology. In each of the proposals, the two interior courtyards combine the order of living spaces.Save this picture!© Sandra PereznietoThe courtyards articulate the main spaces of the apartments, and along with a large green wall in one of the courtyards, provide a particular micro environment inside. The vertical garden 8 levels high, in the manner of a domesticated garden, creates a sense of extension of the public park within the apartments, allowing a constant relationship to the natural environment in circulation and interior areas.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessOrandajima House Community Centre / Martin van der Linden + Ayumu Ota + Yuko KawakitaSelected ProjectsBOX 298 Building / Andrade Morettin Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Miraflores, PeruLocation to be used only as a reference.

Consultant questions valuation of charity brands

first_img Howard Lake | 31 January 2007 | News Advertising and marketing consultant Andrew Papworth has cast doubt on the recent publication of ‘The UK’s Most Valuable Brands 2006’ by consultancy Intangible Business. Writing in the latest edition of his occasional free newsletter ‘Harvest’, he argues that the same methodology for evaluating high street brands can not be applied to the diverse organisations that make up the charity sector.Intangible Business evaluated and ranked 100 UK charities and claimed that Cancer Research UK had the most valuable charity brand worth £209.2 million, a rise of 3% on the previous year, ahead of the National Trust and Oxfam.Papworth argues that the same methodology can not be used to evaluate organisations as disparate as the Wellcome Trust, the Arts Council, the British Council, the British Library and the Church Commissioners on the one hand, and Oxfam, the RSPCA, the RNLI and Barnardo’s on the other.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis He also questions whether the concept of brand equity has much validity in the voluntary sector. “It smacks rather of figuring for the sake of figuring”, he argues, “without much appreciation of where brands fit in the charity world.”He believes that branding is much less central to charity marketing. “Very, very few charities have anything like the brand clout that major FMCG brands have,” he said. Perhaps Oxfam and Greenpeace are at that level but not many others.This is due to a focus in charities on investing in direct response campaigns and not brand-building advertising. In addition, he argues convincingly that “people approach giving to charities in a different way from the way to buying baked beans.”He reasons that “if Heinz beans are not available they are likely to choose an alternative to baked beans NOT an alternative brand OF baked beans. In contrast they are much more likely to want to help a cause, say children, than a particular charity and will do so through whichever brand happens to hit them with a persuasive message at the right time.”Andrew Papworth mails his ‘Harvest’ newsletter at no charge on request to charity marketers. For many years he ran the Charity Monitor on behalf of the RNLI and syndicated its findings to several other major charities.last_img read more

GoodFasting platform will help fasters donate money saved to charity

first_img With intermittent fasting the most searched for diet term on Google in 2019, a platform is launching that helps people who want to follow a plan donate the money they save to charity.The GoodFasting platform is being developed to include features that enable people to follow personalised advice on the intermittent fasting diet with the additional functionality of making donations to people in hunger.Expected to launch in the next month, the platform offers a personalised approach with a focus on providing intermittent fasting programmes based on lifestyle, goals, and eating preferences.People will be able choose from a number of fasting plans listed on the site, which include everything from just drinking water instead of buying a coffee, and skipping a meal a day, to doing the 5:2 diet, which involves eating 500-600 calories for two days out of the week. They will then be able to donate the money they save to their choice of charity.Vladislav Buchnev, founder of the project, said:“People fail in their diets – that’s why many of them consider intermittent fasting because of its simplicity and health benefits. We provide a motivational tool to keep users following a fasting diet while helping others who need it most. Users will be able to follow the fasting diet, skip meals, save money while skipping meals, and donate savings to those who need it most.” Advertisement GoodFasting platform will help fasters donate money saved to charity AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3  624 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Melanie May | 3 March 2020 | News  623 total views,  2 views today 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.

World AIDS Day! A day of remembrance and solidarity

first_imgDecember 1 is World AIDS Day, a day when we reflect on those who have died — and are, hopefully, supporting people living with HIV and AIDS. This special day was first declared by James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter in 1988. They chose Dec. 1 as the date so it would avoid the elections and precede Christmas. World AIDS Day is an important day that we, as radical queers or as revolutionary communists, can use to remind ourselves of our duty to remember the lost and the queer possibilities that fell apart. These queer possibilities are the contributions we give to society in art, music and philosophical theory.  There are even more queer possibilities, with friendships, lovers and families. All the things that are personal and public that people could have been or could have accomplished were wiped away by a then-novel retrovirus that was eventually named the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).Queer people have been and still are blamed for the spread of HIV in the U.S. The book “And the Band Played On,” although generally good, but outdated, was used to insult and malign queer people, specifically, a gay man named Gaetan Dugas. The publisher, fearful that the book wouldn’t sell, leaked unverifiable stories plucked from the book’s pages about a man who coldly and calculatedly had sex with men in bathhouses, and then disclosed his HIV status (then called “gay cancer”) to partners afterward. This was all untrue. He wasn’t “patient zero.” People living in the U.S. had developed and died of HIV before Dugas was even sexually active. The true “patient zero” is unknown; that is a good thing as whoever it was would be maligned as he was. Finally, Dugas was involved in getting information — and pushing scientists to get more knowledge — to queer people. He was a hero, not a villain.‘I hate Ronald Reagan’In the pamphlet entitled “Queers Read This,”  anonymous queers wrote about the  condition of queer people in the U.S. A portion of it reads, “I hate Ronald Reagan, too, because he mass murdered my people for eight years.” (tinyurl.com/y6tqwjeq)This is a historical fact. President Reagan’s staff derided people with HIV/AIDS, particularly ill queer people, and he intentionally dragged his feet on acknowledging the disease and pushing for affordable treatments. Even when the actor Rock Hudson, a friend of Ronald Reagan and Nancy Reagan, begged for intervention in his case so he could get experimental treatment in France, they denied it and allowed him to die. Other supposed friends of the Reagans were mistreated for being queer and having AIDS.As the late Larry Kramer said in his legendary article, “March 27, 1983: 1,112 and Counting,”  “Our continued existence depends on just how angry you can get.” (losangelesblade.com, May 27) This was true in the 1980s; it was revolutionary and radical. It’s still true, revolutionary and radical because the HIV/AIDS epidemic is not over. Medical corporations have only pursued the goal of making money.  This was true when azidothymidine (AZT, zidovudine) was first discovered to have anti-retroviral properties.  Companies prioritized their goal of increasing profits above the health and safety of their customers. How did they do that? They allowed tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, a dangerous medication, to be released and sold for years, until the patent ran out. The drugs Viread, Atripla, Complera, Stribild, and Truvada all contained this dangerous medication, which could damage kidneys and bones. The new, improved, and much safer drug, tenofovir alafenamide, wasn’t released until 2015. Medicines containing this medication – Genvoya, Odefsey, Descovy, Biktarvy, and Symtuza – have come out since then. This should anger people, particularly those whose health was harmed over a few dollars.On World AIDS Day, we must recall our history and observe our present in order to best serve people living with HIV/AIDS. We must know about and remember the powerful homophobes who caused our elders to suffer in a virtual inferno or turned heroes into villains. We must remind ourselves of the businesses that knowingly produced and sold drugs that could harm people without caring that a safer, more potent alternative could be used.  We must remember that these things happened.  If we don’t, the lessons our elders left us may be lost.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

RSF backs Serbia’s embattled independent media

first_img In response to an appeal by Serbia’s journalists to the international community to condemn the growing hostility towards dissident journalists and media in Serbia, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Serbian authorities to stop hounding and intimidating independent media outlets September 28, 2017 RSF backs Serbia’s embattled independent media Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage News News SerbiaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsMedia independenceInternational bodies SerbiaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsMedia independenceInternational bodies Help by sharing this information to go further July 2, 2020 Find out more News News Organisation Follow the news on Serbia June 7, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Receive email alerts Serbia and Montenegro: Are judges protecting journalists or their aggressors? The government’s harassment and intimidation of journalists has increased in recent months, to the point that Vukasin Obradovic, the editor of the independent weekly Vranjske Novine, shut himself in his office and began a hunger strike on 19 September. He said he wanted to draw attention to the “meaninglessness of the fight for media freedom that I have been waging for the last 30 years”.President of the Independent Journalists Association of Serbia (NUNS) from 2010 until February of this year, Obradovic is a renowned journalist who has won many awards for his investigative reporting. However, after being denied financial support and advertising revenue, his widely respected newspaper ran out of funds and has just been forced to close by the authorities.Media outlets that are critical of President Aleksandar Vucic depend for the most part on public subsidies to survive, and the authorities have been imposing increasingly drastic conditions on them with the sole aim of reducing them to silence.Journalists associations say that, when the government recently published a list of projects for which Vranjske Novine had received state subsidies, it was implying that any media outlet receiving public funds should refrain from criticizing the government.“It is fundamental that the Serbian authorities should condemn targeted harassment and attacks on media outlets such as Vranjske Novine and that they should ensure that all publications are treated fairly,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s EU-Balkans desk.After posting articles about how defence minister Aleksandar Vulin bought his apartment, the investigative news website KRIK and its editor, Stevan Dojcinovic, have meanwhile been the targets of angry attacks by the Movement of Socialists (one of the parties in the ruling coalition) and by media outlets that support the prime minister.The defence minister called Dojcinovic a “drug addict and great enemy of the state” without refuting the article’s claims or explaining how he obtained the money used to buy his apartment.“RSF condemns the intimidation campaigns against opposition media outlets, including threats, blackmail and tax audits, which are designed to get rid of publications that annoy the government,” Adès-Mével added.Serbia’s independent media are trying to draw the international community’s attention to their plight. Several Serbian journalists associations issued a joint appeal this week “to international organizations to publicly denounce the media freedom violations in Serbia.”“The authorities are using state institutions and pro-government media to harass ‘inadequate’ media and journalists,” the joint statement said, urging international organizations to stop ignoring the grave problems affecting Serbia’s journalists and to help protect the democratic values they defend.Serbia is ranked 66th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
