This new home of the Perretta architecture studio is located in the urbanization of Santa Bárbara in the surroundings of Valencia. It is a residential area in the west expansion area of the city. Remember that Valencia is bordered to the north and south by extensive orchards of very low elevation and only west of the elevation rises giving rise to dry land.Save this picture!© Antonio OreroSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Antonio OreroThe plot on which the house is built was extremely complicated for two reasons. The first because it forms the final round tip of the block and the second because the difference between the two streets that converge was more than 4 m.From this complexity the advantage has been extracted that the basement is at a level of the lower street and the entrance to the house is at the other end, almost at the level of the ground floor.Save this picture!© Antonio OreroThe curve is absorbed with the shape of the pool that also serves to mark a ramp road that communicates the two extreme dimensions of the plot on the outside.The distribution is based on a dining room, central space at double height, openly open the kitchen through a fireplace. The bedrooms are located on the east side, one above the other, except for the one that corresponds to the daughter, who is on the top floor, on the kitchen and who arrives through a walkway that crosses the central space.Save this picture!© Antonio OreroSave this picture!1st floor planSave this picture!© Antonio OreroThe basement is transmuted on the ground floor, given the level of the lower street, and that allows you to place not only the garage but a workspace with large windows.The house is built exclusively in white concrete, contrasting with the glazed and iroco wood cloths that fill the gaps left by the white shell, which is what draws the formal lines.The system of lightened slab of hollow bodies “CHE” allows us an arrangement of non-orthogonal pillars and large overhangs, usual expression of the Perretta Arquitectura study.Save this picture!© Antonio OreroProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitect’s Association of Santa Fe / Estudio Bechis ArquitectosSelected ProjectsCuatro Caminos Transit Oriented Development / Manuel Cervantes Estudio + JSaSelected Projects Share Lead Architects: Projects Julio Gómez-Perretta de Mateo CopyHouses, Houses Interiors•Godella, Spain ArchDaily Spain Arquitectos: Perretta Arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePerretta ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsGodellaSpainPublished on January 15, 2020Cite: “Luján House / Perretta Arquitectura” [Casa Luján / Perretta Arquitectura] 15 Jan 2020.

The court explicitly referred to LEN in assessing Wanadoo’s responsibility “in the light of the interpretation contained in the decision of the Constitutional Council on 10 June 2004”.Reporters Without Borders has constantly campaigned against the responsibility of providers established by LEN. Since the law’s adoption, it has urged judges to show extreme vigilance in its interpretation. “The law imposes on technical providers the obligation to decide on the legality of content to which they provide access and effectively to take over the work of the courts. The Constitutional Court that ruled on the law had limited the responsibility of providers by introducing the concept of ‘manifestly illegal’ content. But the CDCA case against Wanadoo demonstrates that the concept is too vague to effectively protect freedom of expression. Deciding on the legality of content turns out to be an arduous business, which cannot be accepted by providers, particularly smaller ones,” said the organisation. The entire case rested on the question: “Does contesting the Armenian genocide constitute a manifestly illegal act? To reach a decision the court had to examine a variety of national and international legal texts produced by the Armenian association. These were: the 1881 press law; the statutes of the international military court annexed to the London agreement of 8 August 1945; the French law of 29 January 2001 recognising the Armenian genocide; the international convention for the prevention and repression of genocide adopted by the UN on 9 December 1948 and an 18 June 1987 resolution of the European Parliament. The judges even went so far as to check the minutes of parliamentary sittings.The court finally decided that nothing in these texts confirmed that contesting the Armenian genocide was manifestly illegal. The decision exonerated the provider from any responsibility in the case. Nevertheless the court had to examine three international texts and two French laws to reach a decision. What would have been the judges’ decision if one of the international conventions stipulated that Armenian genocide was not contestable? Would the court have then decided that providers were responsible. The question is far from rhetorical. The judgement given seems to suggest that the provider should, if faced with this type of content, check its legality in the light of national laws and also international legal texts. Certainly ignorance of the law is no excuse but is it reasonable to believe that providers, particularly the smaller ones would be able to handle such a task?According to Lionel Thoumyre, who works for the French consultative group ‘Internet Rights Forum’, the interpretation of the concept “manifestly illegal” should only be applied in relation to the degree of legal competence that one could expect from a provider. With this kind of interpretation, it would be easier to prove that the provider, who could not be considered an expert in international law, was not responsible in this case. It seems however that this ruling, even if favourable to the provider, demonstrates more fundamentally that the legal responsibility on providers is too heavy, despite the protection of the phrase “manifestly illegal”. In wanting to put companies in the place of judicial authorities, the legislator has opened a Pandora’s Box the consequences of which will gradually make themselves felt. The risk of advance censorship of the Internet by its technical providers remains on the agenda.Responsibilities established by the LENThe Constitutional Council made its ruling on 13 June 2004, on the Law on confidence in the digital economy. It reaffirmed the principle of legal responsibility of providers in cases where the illegal content has been drawn to their attention. Even though this step established a system of private justice on the Internet, the council took the view that it conformed to the European directive on which the French law was based. It however toned down the law as voted by parliament, to the effect that providers could only be held responsible if a judge had ruled the content illegal or if a web page was “manifestly illegal”. This last point picked up a recommendation from the Internet Rights Forum, providing judges with limits to this law of responsibility. This meant that French jurisprudence only recognises as “manifestly illegal” content involving revisionist statements, child pornography, justification of war crimes and so on. It therefore became unlikely that service providers would be convicted for posting defamatory articles, for example. RSF_en Organisation

Photo courtesy The Huntington Memorial HospitalAs breast cancer awareness month shines a spotlight on one of the nationâ€™s leading healthcare concerns, Huntington Memorial Hospital announced today the receipt of a significant endowment from James and Eleanor Randall to support the work and care taking place at the hospitalâ€™s nationally renowned breast center.Currently, Huntington Hospitalâ€™s breast center provides thoughtful, compassionate and innovative care to thousands of women each year. The new Randall Endowment for Breast Care will provide the funds needed to support ongoing excellence in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment within the newly named Jim and Eleanor Randall Breast Center.â€œThis new endowment is vital to the ongoing needs of the hospital and the community,â€ said Ruth Williamson, M.D., medical director for breast cancer services. â€œThanks to the incredible generosity of Jim and Eleanor Randall, each year we will be able to deploy funds wherever there is the greatest need and ensure that Huntington Hospital remains at the forefront of breast cancer care and treatment. By doing so, Huntington will remain a beacon of hope for thousands of women in our region now and for generations to come.â€Dr. Williamson explains that the funds may be used to support advanced diagnostic and therapeutic services or to introduce new and advanced care protocols or new technologies.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kumar said “There are instances in the city where residents of large complexes were tested positive due to functions held inside the complexes. It is stated that directions concerning restaurant and hotels are not being complied with; it is therefore all the more necessary for the state and BBMP to ensure that surprise visits are undertaken in various establishments including apartment complexes to ensure that directions are followed.” The Chief Secretary & Chairperson, State Executive Committee, SDMA, has directed the Commissioner, BBMP, Deputy Commissioners, and all authorities concerned to ensure strict compliance with various instructions. It ordered the implementation of he existing regulations/orders regarding COVID Appropriate Behaviour (CAB) by the Police authorities and local bodies such as the suspension of classes except for classes 10, 11 & 12 and classes due for Board/University examinations and of Health Science; avoid gatherings, functions, rallies, dharnas, congregations during religious festivals and jathras/fairs, etc; close common facilities and limit the number of persons in public bars, clubs, restaurants in the districts of Bengaluru Urban & Rural including BBMP, Mysuru, Kalburgi, Dakshin Kannada, Udupi, Bidar and Dharwad. The bench also directed the State and BBMP to place on record the steps taken to implement orders dated March 23 and April 2, the violation of which would be proceeded against as per the provisions of Sections 51 to 60 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, Section 188 of IPC and Section 4, 5 and 10 of the Karnataka Epidemic Diseases Act, 2020. Advocate N P Amruthesh informed the court that due to representation made by persons of the film industry the order dated April 2, has been relaxed and 100 percent occupancy at theatres is allowed till today. He also submitted that the order regarding gyms has been modified and it is allowed to operate with 50 percent occupancy. He said “If one by one lobby keeps giving such representation and the state government continues to accept it then no restrictions in the order will remain”.Following this, the court directed the State to place on record modified orders. Advocate Venkatesh P Dalwai also informed the court that there is a restriction imposed of allowing certain functions to be held in closed areas where upto 200 persons are allowed and similarly 500 persons are allowed in open spaces. However, the size is not prescribed. He pointed out that a closed area like that of the size of a courtroom can also accommodate 200 persons in that case norms of social distancing will not be followed. To which the court said “Prima facie counsel is right that when he submitted that the state govt has not defined the size of open spaces and closed areas. Unless size is prescribed the said restriction will not work. Even in very small closed areas functions will be held which will be attended by 200 persons.” It added “In our view the state must step in immediately and issue a modified order”. As regards the issue of insurance cover for Advocates, the court directed the State government to convene a meeting on April 15, of officer bearers of Bar Association, State government officials, LIC and four public sector Insurance companies including New Indian Insurance company, to ascertain whether a scheme can be evolved for the benefit of Advocates. The court said “It will be advisable if the state government requests senior officers of IRDA to remain present.” The court will next hear the matter on April 16. Next Story
