Owned by a married couple who are both physicians, the house is situated on a 12 meter wide and 32 meter long plot of land on Ratchadapisek road, which is pretty much the centre between two owners’ workplaces. With the shape of the land and the owners’ requirement for a parking space that has to accommodate 5-6 cars, the architect executes the design inspired by a traditional Thai stilt house where the main functional spaces are located on the second and third floor of the building. The architect also decides to gouge out the building’s mass, consequently creating a negative space that functions as a courtyard (commonly found in Sino-Portuguese architecture) surrounded by the living space, dining room and sleeping quarter.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceIn addition its long and narrow shape, the land is located less than ten meters away from the structure of an overpass situating toward the south and west end of the site. With this being the factors, instead of designing the house to face towards the north to escape the afternoon sun and provide a greater privacy for dwellers, and to follow the owners’ wish for a more animated and exciting living space, the design team of Anonym Studio chooses to scoop out the south-facing space at the semi-outdoor courtyard. Such spatial manipulation turns the dining and living area into the house’s main stage, facilitating an interesting dialogue and visual connection between the house and the surrounding public spaces and structures such as the roadways and overpass. And as a result, a surreal and exciting living space is created.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© W WorkspaceNevertheless, to achieve the right balance for the dwellers’ living experience where visual accessibility is moderately granted while the actual living space is kept from being too exposed, Anonym utllizes architectural elements in the forms of walls, steel window frames, the openings at corners of dense concrete walls and large tree pots by arranging them into a layered sequence of diverse yet hierarchal spaces that offer varying levels of privacy.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceWalking into the house at the ground floor, the ray of sunlight coming through the layers of the solid and glass walls situated towards the west leads one up to the upper floor via a stairway. The living room, which is located the nearest to the road and overpass, has a double-layered wall separating the house’s private space from the outside. The inner wall is a two-story high steel structured glass wall that stretches itself around three sides of the living area. Installed on this wall is a series of sliding doors that open out to the terrace. The two-meter height of these doors is equivalent to the height of the opening on the concrete wall. These architectural details are thoughtfully realized to render a comfortable and relaxing living area where the owners feel completely at home. Save this picture!© W WorkspaceThe architect also decides to create additional rectangular openings on the west and south wall. The openings are located at the level higher than the floor level, which enable the heat from coming into the building to be controlled while allowing the right amount of light to be reflected into the room. Collectively, the presence of these openings ends up making the overall ambience of the interior space more lively.Save this picture!Section BOne of the things that sets Floated tree house. apart from other residential projects is how the connection between the living and public space becoming does not become less discernible when walking further inside of the house, but integrated in a rather interesting manner. The fact that the program puts the living and dining room in between the courtyard results in the two space being accentuated from other parts of the house and opening up to the outside surrounding the most.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceNevertheless, to effectively control the heat coming from the south and the west as well as the excessive presence of public space that can cause dwellers to feel uncomfortable, the architect designs the position of the trees growing in the courtyard to function as an additional green layer that helps filter the sunlight and obstruct the outsiders’ visual access into the living area.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceWith clients’ demand for a house of distinctive appearance, Anonym Studio works out the brief by refusing to define ‘being difference’ merely as a visually striking form but puts the focus more on the meticulously fabricated spatial sequence that corresponds with the current condition of the site and dwellers’ behaviors, ultimately creating a story that is specific and connected to the place from which everything is originated.Save this picture!© W WorkspaceProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Renovation Montcada / Hiha StudioSelected ProjectsChangan Noodle Bar / Atelier BoterSelected Projects Share Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Kohler, Ligthing house, Masterzu, Trimble Navigation CopyHouses•Bangkok, Thailand Photographs: W Workspace Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Mr. Phongphat Ueasangkhomset, Ms. Parnduangjai Roojnawate Houses Thailand 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/928422/floated-tree-house-anonym Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAnonymOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBangkokOn FacebookThailandPublished on November 15, 2019Cite: “Floated Tree House / Anonym” 15 Nov 2019.

RSF_en Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years ThailandAsia – Pacific to go further May 12, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts ThailandAsia – Pacific News Reporters Without Borders voices its support for Chiranuch Premchaiporn, the editor of the Prachatai news website, whose trial before a criminal court in the Bangkok district of Rachada is due to begin on 31 May. She is facing up to 50 years in prison for failing to act with sufficient speed to remove “offensive” comments about the monarchy posted by visitors to the site.“We call for the immediate withdrawal of the charges against Chiranuch,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This trial is an important test for the government. Convicting the editor of an independent quality media would constitute a frontal attack on press freedom. Acquitting her, on the other hand, would sent a positive sign to the entire population, which needs more than ever to be informed about what is going on in Thailand. The crisis will not be resolved if freedom of expression is not respected.”Arrested on 31 March, Chiranuch was released after three hours when her sister stood guarantee for the 300,000 bahts (6,000 euros) in bail demanded by the judicial authorities. She told Reporters Without Borders that she had “concerns about the trial” in the current political climate.“In normal times I would be more confident about this initial hearing,” she said. “I hope the court will make allowances. As the Computer Crimes Act is relatively new, the court’s verdict is bound to set a legal precedent.”Under the Computer Crimes Act, owners and editors of websites can be prosecuted when comments are posted that are deemed to have broken the lèse majesté legislation or other laws. The owners are regarded as being as responsible as the visitors who posted the comments.Chiranuch’s website and its pages in the Facebook and Twitter social networks have been repeatedly blocked by the Centre for Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) since the start of Thailand’s political crisis in mid-March.“We changed the site’s URL several times,” she said. “Our site’s initial URL was www.Prachatai.com, but after it was blocked, we changed it to www.Prachatai.net and then to www.Prachatai.info. The CRES blocked our site again on the morning of 26 May. It can now be accessed at www.prachatai2.info.”The site was founded in 2004 – when the now deposed Thaksin Shinawatra was still prime minister – with the aim of being an alternative source of news. The news pages nowadays received more than 20,000 visitors a day while its forum receives about 30,000 visitors a day.The curfew introduced by the Thai government on 19 May has been extended twice and is now due to remain in effect until 28 May. Since the start of the crisis, the CRES has closed more than 1,150 websites regarded as provocative.

Jasikaran and J.S. Tissanayagam, were to finance the Outreachlk (www.outreachsl.com) website and to help Tamil students. An official with the German foundation FLICT told Reporters Without Borders that Tissanayagam, Outreachlk’s editor, received 12,000 euros in November as part of this initiative.Several other sources told Reporters Without Borders that Jasikaran received money from members of the Tamil exile community in Germany to help students in the east of the island.The owner of the E-Kwality printing works and a writer known for his Tamil nationalist stance, Jasikaran was arrested in Colombo on 6 March. His computer and printing equipment were seized, and his wife, a TV producer, was also detained.Tissanayagam, who writes for the Sunday Times newspaper as well as editing Outreach, was arrested by anti-terrorist police on 7 March. Reporter Kithsiri Wijesinghe, photographer Gayan Lasantha Ranga and video director Udayanan were arrested later the same day.Journalist S. Sivakumar, the spokesman of the Free Media Movement, was detained for a few hours on 8 March in connection with the same case. He has been ordered to present himself to the police again.

Reporters Without Borders has obtained evidence that the money in question came chiefly from a German foundation, without any link with the Tamil rebels of the LTTE.Owner of the printers and Tamil writer, V.

Twitter Humana Launches Humana Care Support Pilot to Help Medicare Advantage Members to Better Manage Their Chronic Conditions By Digital AIM Web Support – February 17, 2021 WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp Local NewsBusiness Pinterest TAGS LOUISVILLLE, Ky.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 17, 2021– Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) recently launched a pilot for its new Humana Care Support, formerly known as the Enterprise Clinical Operating Model (ECOM), to help support a select group of Medicare Advantage members. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210217005133/en/ Humana Care Support is Humana’s next generation of customized, integrated and coordinated care management services that builds on Humana’s previous care management models. It supports the company’s efforts to deliver integrated care for Medicare Advantage members, helping them improve their physical, social and behavioral health while aging in place. Within the Humana Care Support pilot, Humana clinician care teams identify, engage and support a select group of Medicare Advantage members living with multiple chronic conditions and complex congestive heart failure and diabetes in Kentucky, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. These multi-disciplinary care teams, which bring together a diverse set of experiences and clinical knowledge, include a nurse, pharmacist, social worker and a behavioral-health specialist. Helping members impacted by social determinants of health Today, 80 percent of older adults are living with at least one chronic condition, and 77 percent are living with at least two chronic conditions. Research has shown that many of these older adults are more likely to fall behind in managing their health and suffer from social determinants of health, which are the conditions in the environments in which people live, learn, work, play, worship and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning and quality of life outcomes and risks. The Humana Care Support pilot builds upon how Humana leverages the concept of integrated care to address social determinants of health. For the last several years, Humana has been helping its members impacted by social determinants of health via its Bold Goal, which is focused on addressing the needs of the whole person by co-creating solutions to address social determinants and the health-related social needs for our members and communities. In addition, the Humana Care Support pilot is also designed to enhance and support the integrated care members are already receiving from their providers. Many of Humana’s provider partners are in value-based care agreements serving our Medicare Advantage members have their own robust care management capabilities already in place and it’s our goal to ensure members receive the primary and preventive care they need. Delivering a better consumer experience For Humana, this new approach is the next step toward becoming a more customer-centric organization driven by integrated care. The Humana Care Support consumer experience is co-designed and constructed in partnership with members, caregivers, front-line clinicians and non-clinicians. The work is further guided by a series of simulations with members/caregivers, which provided valuable insight on their preferences. In addition, the approach helps care teams working with members and their providers ensure patient adherence to providers’ treatment plans. Within the Humana Care Support pilot, multi-disciplinary care teams support Medicare Advantage members in achieving their best health by not just looking at the information on their health history that is detailed in their claims, but also at the social and environmental needs that can affect their health. By leveraging the concept of data-enabled personalization, the integrated care service powered by Humana Care Support allows Humana to understand and address the unique and complex needs of each member, from diabetes complication to food insecurity. Coordinated care supported by analytics William Fleming, PharmD, Segment President, Clinical and Pharmacy Solutions, Humana, is highly confident the Humana Care Support pilot will help Humana Medicare Advantage members and others live independently in their homes, where they feel confident, safe and secure. “Long before the pandemic, the home has become the place where many older adults living with multiple chronic disease want to receive care and to age in place,” Fleming said. “Our Humana Care Support pilot will be instrumental in using best practices in coordinated home health, care management visits and virtual visits to help our members improve their health.” The Humana Care Support pilot brings to life a modernized technology and analytics infrastructure. The care teams will be supported by Salesforce Health Cloud with a single, comprehensive view of a member’s medical history and integrated clinician workflows. Microsoft’s cloud technologies Azure and Power BI power the analytics, data integration and visualization so teams have real-time, actionable information on each member’s needs. Heather Cox, Chief Digital Health and Analytics Officer, Humana, said Humana Care Support could help Humana deliver a new standard in personalized and holistic care driven by data and analytics. “Humana Care Support will help physicians, clinicians and care teams use predictive and reactive analytics to identify who needs help,” Cox said. “When you have an understanding of what’s most important to the member, you can leverage personalization to deliver comprehensive care that not only addresses medical needs, but also behavioral, social and financial ones. For example, when you see that a member is not adherent to their medication, we can leverage analytics to understand if the right outreach is from a social worker to explore social determinants of health and affordability or from a pharmacist to discuss how to mitigate common side-effects.” Humana will expand Humana Care Support to Medicare Advantage members in other states in 2021. About Humana Humana Inc. is committed to helping our millions of medical and specialty members achieve their best health. Our successful history in care delivery and health plan administration is helping us create a new kind of integrated care with the power to improve health and well-being and lower costs. Our efforts are leading to a better quality of life for people with Medicare, families, individuals, military service personnel, and communities at large. To accomplish that, we support physicians and other health care professionals as they work to deliver the right care in the right place for their patients, our members. Our range of clinical capabilities, resources and tools – such as in-home care, behavioral health, pharmacy services, data analytics and wellness solutions – combine to produce a simplified experience that makes health care easier to navigate and more effective.

News UpdatesSudha Bharadwaj’s 3 Co-Prisoners Tested COVID Positive : Daughter Moves Bombay High Court Seeking Release On Medical Grounds Sharmeen Hakim13 May 2021 9:14 PMShare This – xIt is said that Sudha Bharadwaj is kept in a barrack with 50-60 prisoners, sharing only 3 bathrooms, with no possibility of social distancing and sanitary co-existence.The Bombay High Court on Thursday sought lawyer-activist Sudha Bharadwaj’s latest medical report from the Maharashtra Government on a plea seeking her interim release on medical bail from Byculla women’s prison. The petition filed by her daughter Maaysha Singh, invoking Article 226 of the Constitution, states that the sixty-year-old Bharadwaj, who has diabetes, hypertension, ischemic heart disease and a history of pulmonary tuberculosis, is very unwell. Advertisement On August 28, 2018, Bharadwaj was arrested in the Bhima Koregaon- Elgaar Parishad Case for alleged maoist links. She and 15 other civil rights activists and academics face charges under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) on allegations of a conspiracy to overthrow the government. A division bench of Justices KK Tated and Abhay Ahuja heard advocate Yug Chaudhry’s submissions on behalf of Bharadwaj.Advertisement He argued that Bharadwaj is kept in a barrack with about 50-60 prisoners, sharing only three bathrooms and no possibility of sanitary co-existence or social distancing. He submitted that three of her co-prisoners have recently tested COVID positive and Byculla jail has about 40 active cases, as per news reports. “The ward where she is lodged is a literal death trap,” Chaudhry added. Advertisement Advertisement For the past few weeks Bharadwaj has been suffering from diarrhoea, extreme fatigue and constant exhaustion to the extent that she cannot wash clothes or even bathe, the plea states. The state’s counsel, Jayesh Yagnik, informed the bench that Bharadwaj was already scheduled to be taken to Mumbai’s JJ Hospital for a checkup in the evening. Moreover, Bharadwaj tested negative for COVID-19 on two previous, he said. Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The HC then directed Yagnik to produce Bharadwaj’s report from her checkup at the JJ Hospital before May 17. Chaudhry also made submissions regarding the behaviour of prison officials towards the family. He said that the family had made 18 calls to the Byculla prison in the past few days, but the warden refused to come on the line. Instead, Chaudhry said, the officer spoke to the press and accused Bharadwaj of making up stories about her ill health. He asked the court to direct the state to respond to the allegations in the petition about the poor conditions in prison. However, the court said that prisons were operating with just 15% staff; therefore, such a reply cannot be filed immediately. The NIA opposed the plea and informed the court that there was no urgency. The court will now hear the bail application on May 21. Sudha Bhardwaj was taken into custody on August 28, 2018. Bhima Koregaon Case The Bhima Koregaon battle was fought between 25,000 mighty Peshwa army and 500 British soldiers, including people from the Mahar (Dalit) community. The names of martyrs in the war are inscribed in the memorial by the British Army then. The hundreds of people visiting the war memorial at Bhima Koregaon were attacked on January 1, 2018, after violence erupted. They were mainly from Dalit community, and one person died in the stone-pelting. An FIR was registered regarding the violence the same day. However, there has been no substantial progress since. Another FIR by right-wing activist Tushar Damgude, filed on January 8, 2018 and was pursued. It was alleged that the violence at Bhima Koregaon resulted from inflammatory speeches held at the Elgaar Parishad conference on December 31, 2017. The scope of the investigation was eventually widened, with the Pune police claiming retrieval of incriminating documents in the form of electronic records. This included an email written by a certain ‘R’ to Comrade Prakash on April 18, 2017 talking of a “Rajiv Gandhi-type” operation. The NIA took over the investigation in 2020. However, recently Arsenal Consulting, a digital forensics consulting company in the USA, concluded that most of the electronic evidence the police has relied on was planted on co-accused Rona Wilson’s laptop through Malware.
