STRIP CLUB BOSSES STAKE OUT THEIR TURF

first_imgWednesday 8 September 2010 8:10 pm STRIP CLUB BOSSES STAKE OUT THEIR TURF LOOKS like The Capitalist ruffled a few feathers yesterday with a tale about former Spearmint Rhino managing director Simon Warr setting up a new strip club, Platinum Lace, on his previous employer’s territory in the heart of London.Spearmint Rhino bounded in immediately with a robust defence of its business, which is apparently booming at present despite the break-up of the chain’s out-of-London clubs from its flagship Tottenham Court Road venue last year.“Like a lot of other companies, Spearmint Rhino was affected by the recession but now the bankers have their bonuses back and the Arabs continue to splash the cash, revenue in the flagship London club is up 33 per cent,” a club spokeswoman informs me breezily. (I’ll take her word for it, twenties tucked into G-strings an’ all.)But have we touched a raw nerve? Apparently, the club’s success can be “credited to the change in management”, with new vice president John Specht having been flown in a year ago.Funnily enough, ex-day-to-day boss Warr split from Spearmint founder John Gray on less than friendly terms – and I’m told they’ve now had to get the lawyers involved to iron out their differences. ELECTION FEVERThey’re sticklers for etiquette over at the City of London Corporation. In pops an email from the organisers of a charity abseil today, proudly stating that property bigwigs taking part include Alderman Michael Bear, “the Lord Mayor elect”.Not a few minutes goes by before a correction comes rushing in, admitting that Bear hasn’t actually been elected as yet.Bear – who works as regeneration director at Hammerson – is the “preferred candidate” of the City’s electoral college, though once in a blue moon the liverymen do vote against their superiors. He’s up against David Wootton and Roger Gifford in the election on 29 September.OFF TO THE STICKSComic email of the day: courtesy of private equity group Origo Partners, setting up a corporate finance JV in Mongolia. “This is really quite exciting,” gushes the firm, “as a number of UK bankers have chosen to relocate to Mongolia…” What was that about a mass exodus?ONE MAN’S JUNK…A flick through the catalogue for the upcoming Christies auction of Lehman Brothers’ London art, expected to raise around £2m, reveals a familiar sight.Along with paintings, sculptures and bric-a-brac, the administrators are flogging a few of the bank’s wall plaques and signs – with each expected to fetch up to £3,000. Ebay has been doing a roaring trade in such goods since the collapse, so expect fierce competition among bidders.WELL CONNECTEDIt’s off to pastures new for former Alchemy director Eric Lakin, who left the firm at the end of last year. He’s joined Oakley Capital Corporate Finance as a director tasked with expanding the telecoms and technology practice, after a nine-month break. Not for Lakin the idle life, though: since December he’s been advising in an interim role at venture capital firm DN Capital, as well as training as a certified football coach. Both roles have paid off: as well as his new job, he’s now coaching an under-sevens footy team on which his son plays, as well as the son of Fulham striker Andrew Johnson.

The volume is placed in such a way that the roof becomes an artificial terrain. The form of this surface responds to the negotiation between topographic relations, construction technology constraints, raining water collection, and different spatial needs of parts of the interior. The architecture projects polygonal geometry to the exterior, tensing the landscape, and smooths the interior, naturalizing the domestic. Save this picture!© José HeviaProject gallerySee allShow lessNew York Plans $10 Billion Renovation of JFK AirportArchitecture NewsHKS Designs New Ballpark for MLB’s Texas RangersArchitecture News Share ArchDaily Photographs:  José Hevia Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Area:  193 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

HOUSING COMPLEX NIIGATA III is an apartment building composed of 34 dwellings.  There are a number of traditional Japanese houses still exist on neighbouring plots, and cultural facilities, shopping districts, universities, public offices and a park within 500m.  In order to integrate an apartment block in a location where various programs interact with each other, we considered an aggregate composed of 34 types of dwelling that cater to differing lifestyles. We tried to reconstruct the relationship between inside and outside spaces in collective housing in an urbanized context.  We designed from inside to outside and also outside to inside, considering the separating role of the perimeter wall, the slab and structural frame, and the use of a terrace as a transition zone.Save this picture!© Naomichi SodeSave this picture!© Naomichi SodeDesigning from internal space – Place the outer envelope walls as a buffer zone on the outside of the terrace, and control the feeling of the distance between the inside and the outside. – Arrange openings in the external envelope to prevent a direct line of sight from inside to outside and vice versa, this provides privacy and separation between dwellings and the city. – The relationship between the columns of the structural frame and the slab (in plan) allows the internal space to be divided softly, causing a gradual spatial change from the inside to the outside.Save this picture!© Naomichi SodeDesigning from external space – Through the construction of the building we wanted to express both a human scale and the density of the city, whilst maintaining visual coherence.  To achieve this, dwellings were grouped in 2-3 storey volumes with a similar proportion to the old wooden row houses nearby.  The resulting expression of the thin outer envelope of walls and slabs therefore provides a human scale.  Simultaneously the structural frame adopts an urban scale comprising a 10-storey housing complex. Save this picture!© Naomichi SodeThe two contradictory scales are demonstrated in both the residential space and the cityscape.  The urban scale of columns and beams within rooms give residents an awareness of the neighbouring dwellings, reminding them of their connection to the collective. In recent years, with rebuilding progressing and old buildings in this area being lost, we envisage this structure as archival architecture, inheriting fragments of the historical cityscape and expressing memories in the future.Save this picture!© Naomichi SodeThe structure is a rigid frame with an economic span that is required to establish a 10-storey housing complex. Niigata, a provincial city, is a typical car-oriented society and is subjected to heavy snowfall so we arranged piloti on the ground floor to enable as many parking bays as possible. The grid span is based on the module of a parking bay. The structural frame as proposed enables the slab, outer envelope and the boundary walls to be completely freely designed in plan. The outer envelope and the cantilevered slabs are rigidly joined. By stacking 2 to 3-storey walls, it reduces the deflection effect on the cantilever slab and instead produces a long-term reinforcing effect. For long-term loads, the outer envelope reinforces the slabs, and the slab laterally supports the outer envelope against seismic forces.Save this picture!© Naomichi SodeProject gallerySee allShow lessDa House / Gerira ArchitectsSelected ProjectsRenovation of the 809 Arsenal Relics / 3andwich Design / He Wei StudioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Niigata, JapanLocation to be used only as a reference.

Facebook and four news websites blocked on government’s orders

first_img Receive email alerts March 8, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Facebook and four news websites blocked on government’s orders Help by sharing this information to go further News News May 14, 2021 Find out more TajikistanEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Tajikistan Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the sudden escalation in cyber-censorship by the Tajik government. Since 2 March, a dozen local Internet Service Providers have received orders to block access to the social network Facebook and four independent news websites.“A year and a half after the last episode of this kind, the Tajik authorities have gone back to large-scale cyber-censorship,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This major blocking initiative is as inacceptable as it is absurd.”For the most part, it has been impossible to access Facebook, the Russian geopolitical analysis site Polyarnaya Zvezda (Polar Star), the Tajik exile political news site Tjknews.com, the Uzbek news site Maxala.org and the Central Asian news site Centrasia.ru since the morning of 3 March. State telecommunications chief Beg Zukhurov denied on 5 March that any orders had been given to ISPs and blamed “technical problems.” But the local press obtained a copy of a letter signed by Zukhurov’s deputy which was received by the main ISPs and which told them to “block access” to these five sites “in connection with preventive technical work (LINK).”According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Poliarnaya Zvezda was the first site to be blocked, on the evening of 2 March. This tends to support the theory of several commentators that the cyber-censorship was prompted by an article on this site entitled “Tajikistan on the eve of a revolution” that was very critical of President Emomali Rakhmon’s government. It is thought that the other sites were blocked when they, too, posted the offending article. Central Asia’s leading Russian-language news website, Fergananews, has meanwhile been surprised to learn that it has also been partially blocked in Tajikistan for several days.The blocking of Facebook is especially absurd as it has only 35,000 users, far fewer than the Russian-language social networks Moy Mir and Vkontakte, which have 150,000 and 100,000 respectively. The ruling People’s Democratic Party meanwhile announced yesterday that it plans to launch an alternative social network. The plan is reminiscent of the Uzbek government’s recent creation of Muloqot.uz, a national social network that is monitored and expurgated.Generalized content filtering and attempts to move Internet users to “national” social networks are spreading alarmingly in Central Asia. So is the idea that the Internet should be carved up into national segments that are subject to locally-determined norms in the name of “security” and “local values.”Tajikistan submitted a proposal for an “Internet code of good conduct” to the United Nations on 23 September. Supported by China, Russia, and Uzbekistan, it basically aims to subject the free flow of information to local standards and government imperatives.(Photo: Dieter Nagl / AFP) Organisation center_img Tajikistan imposes total control over independent broadcast media November 6, 2020 Find out more News TajikistanEurope – Central Asia RSF_en News Journalist loses accreditation over report about Tajikistan’s president #CollateralFreedom: RSF unblocks eight sites censored during pandemic August 25, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
