The bill looks to repeal paragraph 207(4)(b) of the Criminal Code to permit single-event betting.BCLC and theScore have now also thrown their backing behind the effort, with the hope of legalising single-event sports betting in British Columbia and the wider Canadian market.Read the full story on iGB North America.

An elderly couple with a newborn grandchild commissioned us to design their new residence on a section between two recently built houses. Among their main requirements was that the house should have little or no visual contact with the neighboring properties and that daily life should happen on a single level. In addition to the usual requirements they asked for a guest bedroom and a gym on an upper level, which we resolved by means of gentle transition, that is, without long-spanning flights of stairs.Save this picture!PlanAfter a thorough analysis of the clients’ requirements, site orientation and climatic conditions, we proposed an uncomplicated form with double-height interior spaces, a design characterized by clear lines and simple volumes. We proposed the house to be elevated from eye level to achieve privacy from the street.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoEven though the house uses materials, construction methods and a palette of colors already established by the surrounding buildings, this is not a traditional house. In this house those same materials and colors have been applied in a way that challenges the surrounding environment and expresses our architectural ideas by means of a design concept with a focus on geometry.Save this picture!PlanEach room within this house is oriented in such a way as to make the best use of sunlight throughout the day and for family life to take place around the garden, the core around which the house functions. It is worth to mention that magnificent views of the most important volcanos of Mexico can be enjoyed from all angles of this house. The front façade is almost totally disconnected from the street; all living, dining and family rooms as well as the library are directly and easily connected to the garden and the deck. Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThis is a house of flexible, open spaces, where the particular use of each one of them is not absolutely pre-determined – a conception along the lines of a holiday house.Save this picture!SectionOnly local materials have been used: natural stone and timber, travertine marble, recinto (volcanic stone), walnut wood beams, granite and toughened (tempered) glass. Careful landscape design thoughout the house completes the program.Project gallerySee allShow lessCity of Hindmarsh Shire Council’s new Civic Centre / k20 ArchitectureSelected ProjectsLiving Building Challenge Now Fulfills LEED Energy and Water RequirementsArchitecture News Share Projects Photographs LPZ House / Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop Save this picture!© Rafael Gamo+ 16 Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/618605/lpz-house-arquitectura-en-movimiento-workshop Clipboard Houses CopyHouses•Mexico City, Mexico ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/618605/lpz-house-arquitectura-en-movimiento-workshop Clipboard CopyAbout this officeARQMOV WorkshopOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMexico CityMexicoPublished on April 18, 2015Cite: “LPZ House / Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop” [Casa LPZ / Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop] 17 Apr 2015.

Over 1,900 signed up for Women’s March-Fort Worth Saturday afternoon

first_imgLinkedin Facebook Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ printOrganizers of the Women’s March-Fort Worth are expecting about 1,900 people to join Saturday afternoon’s march through downtown.Marchers will meet in front of the Tarrant County Courthouse. The group will start on Main Street, left on 3rd Street to Commerce Street, right on 4th Street to Main Street, turn right on 9th Avenue in front of the Fort Worth Convention Center, and circle back to the courthouse on Houston Street. The march is expected to start at 12:30 p.m. and continue until about 3:00 p.m..According to actionnetwork.org, the march is meant to show solidarity with those demonstrating in Saturday’s march in Washington D.C.  Brienn Richter, an assistant organizer, said the mission of both events is to give women a voice to express their views on issues.Marches are organized in Dallas, Austin, Houston, Denton as well as in cities all over the U.S..A statement on the event page reads in part: “The Women’s March will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world, that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”Richter said, “We’re not marching against something. We’re marching for what we are for.”Erin Blythe, another organizer, said people will be advocating for various issues like planned parenthood, Obamacare, LGBTQ rights and the inauguration.“I voted and didn’t feel heard,” Blythe said. “I called my legislators and didn’t feel heard. Now I’m marching with other women who don’t feel heard. I feel invisible. By marching we will be visible and physically present.”Event organizers publicizing the event on actionnetwork.org and Facebook have stressed that the march is non-partisan and does not condone any acts of physical or verbal aggression.The event page invites anyone to join.

Journalist Atahar Siddik Khasru is found alive

first_imgNews News Follow the news on Bangladesh Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention BangladeshAsia – Pacific News May 21, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist Atahar Siddik Khasru is found alive Atahar Siddik Khasru was found alive on a road near the southeastern town of Sitakund on 21 May, three weeks after he went missing. His family received an anonymous phone call early in the morning saying where he had been left. When police found him, his hands and legs were chained, he had cuts on his back, legs and hands, and he had bruises all over his body. His injuries were not critical, however.Khasru said he was kidnapped on 30 April in Chittagong near Sitakund by a group of armed men who blindfolded him, took him to an unidentified place and shut him in a dark room. He was tied up and watched by two masked men all the time he was detained. He said he was beaten with metal roads and slashed with blades. Although he never saw the faces of any of his abductors, he gave the names of several suspects to the police who interrogated him. The police refused to give these names to the news media. Talking to local journalists, Khasru blamed ruling politician Nurul Islam, general secretary of local branch of BNP, was responsible for his abduction.————————————-05.09.2003 Journalist allegedly kidnapped by ruling party, colleague arrested for protestingReporters Without Borders today voiced its deep concern about the fate of journalist Atahar Siddik Khasru, who was reportedly kidnapped by members of the ruling BNP party in the southeastern town of Sitakunda on 30 April. It also expressed outrage about the arrest of fellow journalist Mahmudul Haq on 6 May after he tried to shed light on Khasru’s abduction and criticised the police for their lack of action in the case.The organisation called on Prime Minister Khaleda Zia to do everything possible to ensure that Khasru is recovered alive, that Haq is released, and that all the BNP activists involved are identified and punished.A journalist with the daily Dainik Ittefaq and president of the Sitakunda press club, Khasru, was abducted on 30 April after protesting about police and BNP harassment of his friend and colleague Haq, editor of the magazine Upanagar and correspondent for the pro-Islamist daily Dainik Sangram. Haq said he was targeted by police after publishing articles accusing them and certain politicians of corruption. On 29 April, Haq’s home was ransacked by BNP activists. A local BNP leader, Nurul Islam, then brought a complaint against him, accusing him of extortion and harassment.Khasru’s family claim that Khasru was kidnapped by the same BNP activists who ransacked Haq’s home, and that their reason was Khasru’s support of Haq. Khasru had received telephone threats shortly before his disappearance. On 6 May, his brother filed a complaint against Islam and three other BNP members accusing them of responsibility for the kidnapping.About 30 journalists marched through the streets of Sitakunda on 6 May to demand Khasru’s immediate release and the arrest of his abductors. The protest was promptly broken up by a group of thugs armed with bamboo sticks.Haq meanwhile went to the capital, Dhaka, with the aim of asking the police authorities there to intervene in Khasru’s abduction. But police intercepted him and arrested him on a Dhaka street on the evening of 6 May, and transferred him to Chittagong where he was placed in custody for three days. He is due to appear before a judge on 10 May.Khasru was previously kidnapped and held for about two weeks in June 2001 because of articles he had written alleging links between organised crime and the naval construction industry in Sitakunda. Police briefly arrested three suspects in this earlier kidnapping but no charges were brought against them.
