Barclays, who have some exposure to Spain and Portugal is also higher,” said Michael Hewson, market analyst at CMC Markets. Defensive stocks such as International Power, down 3.43 per cent to 405p and National Grid, down 2.05 per cent to 548.5p, fell most. National Grid lost ground after as Investec kept its “sell” rating on the utility, saying Ofgem’s seminar yesterday highlighted the regulatory uncertainty facing the industry.Drugmaker AstraZeneca fell 2.77 per cent to 2,947.5p, after going ex-dividend.“Pharmaceuticals have proved to be a drag, with AstraZeneca near the bottom of the index, while Johnson Matthey has also slipped back despite reporting better-than-expected third-quarter profits,” said Hewson.And engineer GKN dropped 4.91 per cent to close at 193.8p after Credit Suisse suggested its profit margin was at risk from rising commodity prices.US stocks weakened after yesterday’s rally in which indices closed at two-and-a-half-year highs. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 7.76 points, or 0.06 per cent, to 12,047.92. The S&P 500 dropped 2.33 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 1,305.26; and the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 2.03 points, or 0.07 per cent, to 2,753.22.

By restoring an 1802 Martello Tower and converting it to a family home, the principles of conservation were pushed beyond preservation, instead aiming to breathe new life into the ‘at risk’ structure. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerStrategically the intention was to clearly differentiate the old and the new, avoiding pastiche, with the contemporary insertions touching the original fabric as lightly as possible; allowing the heavily textured masonry to be the star. Designed to be extremely sensitive to the monument and its setting, the new curving roof extension and re-sculpted interior seek to gain creative momentum from the tension between modern requirements and the need for heritage conservation. Save this picture!Roof PlanConverting a Napoleonic era defence tower built in 1808 into a 21st Century private residence was a demanding brief. As a Scheduled Monument on the At Risk register and located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the planning negotiations were matched in complexity by the on-site logistics. Ultimately however, the conversion won the support of English Heritage who heralded it as an exemplar of how to convert significant historical buildings. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerMaterials and ConstructionThe tower’s fabric comprises 750,000 bricks but the quality of their construction was not immediately evident. As it was revealed, it set the standard for the design. The new roof is a 3D curved lightweight structure, constructed of steel and laminated plywood, tethered by five pairs of Macalloy bars. A detailed 3D model was used to create 2D cutting patterns for off-site manufacture. A skirt of frameless curved glass below the roof expresses the distinction between old and new as well as providing 360 degree views. The roof, set back to minimize visual impact, is clad in a single ply membrane with three roof lights. The system is elemental as it had to be stored and installed from the gun platform. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerIn order to bring light into the basement, six 450mm diameter holes were diamond-core drilled through 4.5m of fully bonded brickwork from just inside the window reveals into the magazine bedroom, utility, bunk room and bathrooms. The two other bedrooms have 60mm holes for ‘Camera Obscura’ views of the countryside to the southwest and northwest. Save this picture!© Edmund Sumner200mm diameter holes were drilled from the top of the parapet to meet the passive ventilation system leading to the ground floor and basement. These brick ducts provide routes for water, electricity, gas for the kitchen and heating to the roof. They also accommodate the supply and exhaust ducts for the heat recovery ventilation system in the basement and ground floors.Save this picture!DetailProject gallerySee allShow lessAviary, Bioparque Temaikén / Hampton+Rivoira+ArquitectosArticlesUNBUILT HELSINKI at the Museum of Finnish ArchitectureArticles Share DHA Designs Houses Structural Engineer: “COPY” Price & Myers, JP Chick and Partners Lighting: CopyAbout this officePiercy&CompanyOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited KingdomPublished on December 04, 2012Cite: “Martello Tower Y / Piercy&Company” 04 Dec 2012.

President Park Geun-hye’s brother, Park Ji-man, accuses them of insinuating that he was involved in the 2011 murder of his cousin.

According to Choo, the police failed to account for many facts and contradictions that cast doubt on the investigation’s hasty conclusions. Claiming he had been defamed, Park Ji-man sued both of them. “This prosecution is a crude manoeuvre designed to dissuade journalists from doing their job in a matter of public interest,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk.“The work done by Choo and Kim could not only shed new light on the murder but also expose an attempt to hush up the case. The courts must recognize the media’s right to cover public interest matters, regardless of their sensitivity. They must also refrain from applying defamation laws that provide for jail sentences and thereby encourage self-censorship and endanger freedom of information.”The Korean Union of Media Workers issued a statement on 7 January accusing the authorities to trying to intimidate the two journalists, who have received international support from various quarters including well-known US philosopher and political commentator Noam Chomsky.Chomsky called their prosecution “a serious attack on freedom of press” and, referring to South Korean democracy, said “some of its achievements are being undermined.”A petition for the journalists’ acquittal can be signed here.South Korea has been falling in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index for the past three years and is now ranked 57th out of 180 countries.(photo: Makiko Segawa) November 11, 2020 Find out more August 18, 2020 Find out more
Reporters Without Borders today voiced its utmost concern about threats to the life of Belgian journalist Els de Temmerman by Ugandan rebels. In particular, the organization is concerned about a letter from rebel chief Joseph Kony, found on a rebel captured by the Ugandan army, in which Kony calls for De Temmerman’s “elimination”.In a letter to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said: “We are extremely concerned about this murder order, and we ask you to ensure that Ms. De Temmerman’s security is guaranteed at all times, including when she is travelling, so that she can continue her work”.This death threat follows the publication of a book by De Temmerman entitled “Daughters of Aboke” in which she describes the mistreatment of adolescents who are forced to joint the rebel movement headed by Kony, a religious fanatic. De Temmerman, a former VRT correspondent, has felt under threat from Kony since January as a result of her work on behalf of the “kadogo”, the children who are forced to take up arms.Nonetheless, she has stressed her intention to remain in the country. “Iwill continue my programme in favor of the child soldiers of Uganda. What I am currently undergoing is nothing compared with what these children and their families have been suffering for years,” she has said.
