The Anglican Church in Japan, the Nippon Sei Ko Kai (NSKK) has apologised for its part in the isolation and inhuman treatment of sufferers. Photo: Wikimedia[Anglican Communion News Service] The Synod of the Nippon Sei Ko kai (NSKK), the Anglican Church in Japan, has issued a public apology for their part in the isolation and inhumane treatment of people with Hansen’s Disease (leprosy).According to the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Hansen’s Disease is “a chronic infectious disease that primarily affects the peripheral nerves, skin, upper respiratory tract, eyes, and nasal mucosa.” It is caused by “a bacillus (rod-shaped) bacterium known as Mycobacterium leprae”. Contrary to popular myth, it is not highly contagious.But for many years it was official government policy in Japan to isolate suffers in closed institutions – even burying the dead within the institutions to prevent the need for outsiders to visit. They even had their own churches and Buddhist temples to negate the need for patients to leave. Marriage was discouraged and those who did marry were forcibly sterilized. Those who became pregnant were made to undergo abortions.A cure for the Hansen’s Disease was discovered in the early 1940s, but Japan maintained its Leprosy Prevention Law until the mid-1990’s. Before its repeal, patients began a campaign to regain their human rights and freedom from the institutions. But this was rejected by the NSKK who saw it as a “political” campaign and decided that it was “not appropriate” for religious organization like the NSKK to be involved in it.“It has been 20 years since the repealing of the Leprosy Prevention Law in 1996,” an NSKK spokesperson said. “During this time NSKK has been active in promotion of understanding and taking care of Hansen’s Disease patients and very much involved with good causes linked to patients in the institutions. However, the NSKK has not apologised to the patients.”The church says that it should not have collaborated with the government policy; and should have learned from the example of two Anglican missionaries who went to Japan with significant knowledge of the disease and a great deal of concern for those with it.In 1895, CMS missionary Hannah Riddell built a hospital for those with the disease in Kumamoto. And in 1916 United Society missionary Mary Helena Cornwall Legh started the St. Barnabas Mission in the Yunosawa area of, Kusatsu.Both women were held in high regard and around 10 per cent of the institutions’ population became baptized members of NSKK.The situation was very different in the government-run institutions. “Some of those who visited patients were very impressed with their faithful life at the institution,” the NSKK Spokesperson said. “On the surface all seemed to be for the patients’ sake, but there was a denial of their human rights [and] they were facing real fear of the disease.“We did not fully understand the difficulty they experienced but only envied their faithfulness.”At its synod in 1996, following the repeal of the Leprosy Prevention Law, the NSKK passed a resolution recognizing the lifting of this law; but it did not identify any specific actions to be taken.“At this same synod another resolution was passed to recognize our wrongful doing against Asian Pacific nations during the Second World War and expressed apologies,” the NSKK spokesperson said. “Yet we did not do likewise for the patients of Hansen’s disease [even though] NSKK was guilty for its action or inaction in supporting the Government’s isolation policy. . .“The NSKK recognizes that it was our fault not to act sooner and wishes to faithfully express our apologies to the patients. It is very regrettable that despite the solid ministry of Ms. Riddell and Ms. Legh in early encounters with patients, we did not learn from them soon enough.”Citing the example of Jesus healing the Leper in Mark 1: 40-45, the Synod said that “the NSKK, as an organization, did not do as Jesus taught us.” Instead, it “continued to put [the sufferers] in difficulty and ignored their rights.“We declare that we are totally responsible for this wrong-doing and apologise that it took so long to realize this.”In addition to the public apology, the NSKK is launching a public awareness and education program.

The client’s brief was simple and flexible, requiring a contemporary design for contemporary family life, creating communal spaces, but recognizing the needs for members of the family to have their own private spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of architecture:mRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAThe shape and the orientation of the site started to generate a unique building, creating a private retreat for the family to enjoy. Through the use of generous sized patio doors, inter connected balconies to all the bedrooms, and the careful use of flooring materials the house and the courtyard link together seamlessly.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanProposalsThe scheme comprises of two wings, the first containing living and communal space and the second, containing the bedrooms and private spaces. A pool house forms the third boundary to a private courtyard. The house feels secluded due to the courtyard and the well-established trees surrounding the site, allowing the family to make the most of the southern aspect. From the street the house appears unassuming with a modest facade that acts as a barrier between public and private, whilst accentuating the relationship of the internal spaces connecting through to the courtyard, which forms the focal point to the home.The design takes an inspired approach to the open plan living and aesthetic of the 1950’s Californian Pacific Modern style, evolving this in a contemporary manor and adapting to the realities of the British climate and clients requirements.Save this picture!Courtesy of architecture:mThe angular and textured landscaping to the hidden courtyard, from which the two wings of the dwelling face is the primary feature of the exterior space. The fractured elements of this landscape design take direct reference from the rhythm and proportion of the house and therefore compliment the building. The finishes are purposefully restricted to a crisp white render, the graphite grey of the window frames and the rough stone of the spine / feature wall. In doing this, both the home and garden become the backdrop to the family and there lifestyle.Save this picture!First Floor PlanAs above, the internal finish is very restricted to crisp white walls, the textured stone of the feature wall and the large format light grey floor tiles allowing the family’s furniture and positions to become more prominent. The internal finish complements the external finish and allows the interaction of the open plan living spaces of the inside and the private courtyard of the outside space to become seamless.Save this picture!Courtesy of architecture:mAs the dwelling was constructed in the northwest of England, the primary challenge was the fluctuating weather conditions, with there being particularly bad weather in the summer of 2008 when the construction began. Fortunately the superstructure was constructed from insulated concrete formwork, which can be poured regardless of the weather. The protective nature of the courtyard now gives the impression that the home has been transported to the Mediterranean rather then the suburban outskirts of an industrial British town.Save this picture!Courtesy of architecture:mAll construction products were specified with sustainability in mind, encompassing expected lifetime of the product, excellent thermal capacity and limited transportation distance. Internally, all finished were limited to a crisp contemporary look allowing the families furniture and positions to become prominent.Save this picture!Courtesy of architecture:mThe third wing of the courtyard established by the two primary wings of communal and private space is formed by a detached poolroom and gymnasium, which interacts with the courtyard in the same manor as the main living wing and essentially forms a seamless juncture between swimming pool, courtyard and living space, which successfully acknowledges the clients original brief of interlinked space.Project gallerySee allShow lessUNESCO Launches Design Competition for Bamiyan Cultural Centre in AfghanistanArchitecture NewsOUALALOU+CHOI Pitches Woven Tent Outside of Jean Novel’s Arab World InstituteArchitecture News Share Year: United Kingdom “COPY” Photographs Save this picture!Courtesy of architecture:m+ 12 Share Projects Regent Road / architecture:mSave this projectSaveRegent Road / architecture:m CopyHouses•Bolton, United Kingdom Architects: architecture:m Year Completion year of this architecture project 2014 Photographs: Courtesy of architecture:m ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/569056/regent-road-architecture-m Clipboard Houses Year: 2014 Regent Road / architecture:m ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/569056/regent-road-architecture-m Clipboard CopyAbout this officearchitecture:mOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBoltonHousesUnited KingdomPublished on December 07, 2014Cite: “Regent Road / architecture:m” 07 Dec 2014.

It seems that creating revenue by building a house becomes a trend. It can be seen that building a house with the maximum floor-area ratio and building coverage ratio within the legal limit is a wise way to build a house. A house irrelevant seemingly was placed at the Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do. Although the house is relatively smaller than other neighboring big multi-household houses, the shape of stably standing shoulder to shoulder with them is impressive. The architect hopes this house born by the desire of the client who wanted not to build a house with maximum values, but to build a house for life to become a fresh message to the gray city.Save this picture!SketchIn the Barbarella house situated in the Yongin-si Gyeonggi-do, two households, who are a family, is living and sharing. The second floor where the parents and younger brother live has no difference with the layout of the first floor and features an impressive feeling of space by a pitched roof. There are full of rest and composure by a space for the father whose hobby is playing go, a small terrace for spending some quality time, and so on. Also, there are an attic space for future grandchildren and a triangle attic for the younger brother who needs an individual space. The house having an identical floor plan on each floor is easy to become a simple space like an apartment.Save this picture!© Kim Yong SoonSave this picture!© Kim Yong SoonThe main objective was to design a satisfying house with an equivalent feeling by considering two different life patterns of households. At the first floor for the daughter and her husband, there are a main room that can be divided by a fake wall for future baby, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom, and others. The kitchen and the living room, which have a level difference, are not only filtering the exposed appearance from an open garden, but also resolving crampedness by a low ceiling and becoming a space for a discussion or meditation with reading by setting a bookshelf at the place where the level difference exists. Considering the possibility that the daughter and her husband is sent to work abroad in 4 ~ 5 years, the exterior moving paths of two households were separated, and there was no shared interior moving path to be rented.Save this picture!Section 03Save this picture!Section 04It is difficult to build a character at the house where two floors were stacked. Because the house was easy to become a multi-household house resembling an apartment, the important objective was to design a satisfying house with an equivalent feeling.Save this picture!© Kim Yong SoonProject gallerySee allShow lessCity Hotel Paris / Hardel Le Bihan ArchitectesSelected ProjectsChengdu ICON Yunduan / PES-ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Kim Yong Soon+ 44Curated by Fernanda Castro Share CopyAbout this officeKDDHOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYongin-siSouth KoreaPublished on January 27, 2018Cite: “Barbarella House / KDDH” 26 Jan 2018.

All three had been held since late 2001.Another journalist arrested in February 2009, whose identity has not been established with certainty, has also reportedly died in detention – in his case, in Abi Abeito military prison near the capital, Asmara.The only good news is that Tesfalidet “Topo” Mebrahtu, a well-known sports journalist who worked for state-owned radio Dimtsi Hafash and state-owned Eri-TV, was “released on bond” (he is still under surveillance, with relatives acting as guarantors) in early 2012 after being held for 10 months.”While all eyes are turned on Syria, another, less visible, tragedy is being played out in Eritrea, a country forgotten by the international community although it is the world’s leading media freedom violator and Africa’s biggest prison for journalists ” Reporters Without Borders said. “In Eritrea, journalists have been thrown in prison just for daring to express their opinions. Some have been held for more than 10 years and are disappearing one by one. Located in the northeast of the country, Eiraeiro is not a prison, it is a death camp.” Reporters Without Borders first revealed details about conditions at Eiraeiro in January 2008 (http://en.rsf.org/eritrea-new-revelations-about-eiraeiro-30-01-2008,3337…), after meeting a former camp guard. Further details were provided in 2010, on the basis of statements made by another former guard, Eyob Bahta, shortly after he fled to Ethiopia. What follows is based on new eyewitness accounts from this death camp.I – Three more of the journalists held since 2001 die in detentionDawit HabtemichaelArrested on 21 September 2001 after hiding for three days in the school where he taught physics, Habtemichael was the deputy editor and co-founder of the biweekly Meqaleh. Aged 30 at the time of his arrest, he was one of the youngest of the Eritrean journalists to be detained. After his mental health began to deteriorate in 2007, he became schizophrenic and finally lost all contact with reality in 2010. The failure to treat his steadily worsening mental condition is thought to have been the cause of his death in the second half of 2010. He was prisoner No. 12 at Eiraeiro.Mattewos HabteabMeqaleh co-founder and editor Mattewos Habteab and another journalist, Temesgen Gebreyesus, were transferred to a prison in the Dahlak Archipelago in late 2008 but were subsequently brought back to the mainland, to Eiraeiro, and it was there that Habteab finally succumbed to the camp’s appalling conditions.Sahle Tsegazab, aka Wedi ItayBetter known by the pen-name of Wedi Itay, Sahle Tsegazab was a freelance journalist and writer who often worked for privately-owned newspapers such as Keste Debena as well as the pro-government daily Hadas Eritrea. Arrested in October 2001, he died at Eiraeiro from an identified illness and from the lack of medical treatment.It was previously established that four of the other journalists arrested around the same time in 2001 – Medhanie Haile, Yusuf Mohamed Ali, Said Abdulkader and Fessehaye “Joshua” Yohannes – died in detention.As a result, only four members of the group of journalists arrested in September/October 2001 – Dawit Isaac, Seyoum Tsehaye, Amanuel Asrat and Temesgen Gebreyesus – are still alive.II – Torture and mistreatment of state media journalists held since 2009Former prison guard Berhane Afro fled the country earlier this year and is seeking asylum in Israel. He was a guard at Adi Abeito military prison, where most of the journalists arrested at Radio Bana and other state media in February 2009 are being held. He said information minister Ali Abdu and one of his employees, identified only as Asmelash, went to Adi Abeito recently to talk to the prison’s governor, Wedi Welela. He also reported that journalists held at Adi Abeito are subjected to various forms of torture and mistreatment including electric shock, beatings and solitary confinement. Food is sometimes withheld and they are denied medical care.A journalist identified only by the given name of Bereket reportedly died as a result of these appalling conditions. It is believed that this journalist is Bereket Misghina, but Reporters Without Borders cannot confirm this with complete certainty.All the journalists arrested in 2009 are accused of collaborating with western NGOs and government and with exile opposition groups. They are allowed no visits. Some, such as the journalist, writer and translator Mulubrahan Habtegebriel and the young journalist and poet Meles Negusse, are still being held at Adi Abeito. Others have been moved to other detention centres. They include Eri-TV journalist Isaac Abraham, who has been transferred to May Srwa. Yirgalem Fisseha Mebrahtu, a woman journalist who was arrested in February 2009, is reportedly still in an Asmara hospital.Photo : Eiraeiro death camp January 13, 2021 Find out more Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home?

Help by sharing this information ————————–Download the report “His untouchable Majesty – Censorship and imprisonment : the abuses in the name of lese majeste” News ————————– Reporters Without Borders is organising a cyber-demonstration on the Internet on 9 February to call for the release of Australian writer Harry Nicolaides, who is serving a three-year prison sentence on a lese majeste charge for referring briefly to the monarchy in a novel set in Thailand. He has been held since 31 August 2008 in Bangkok. “Nicolaides has been treated unfairly and the sentence is disproportionate,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Not only were the comments in his novel restrained but he also received permission to publish it in Thailand. We call for his release and we urge all Internet users to do the same by demonstrating outside a virtual version of Bangkok’s royal palace.” Arrested on 31 August, Nicolaides was sentenced on 19 January to three years in prison for briefly alluding to the love-life of an unnamed “Thai prince” in his 2005 novel “Verisimilitude,” of which only 50 copies were ever printed. Nicolaides is not the only victim of Thailand’s archaic lese majeste legislation. Since the new government took office in December, many punitive measures had been ordered in the king’s name in order to silence criticism. The Internet is heavily censored and anyone commenting on the royal family is liable to threatened with a lese majeste prosecution. At least 2,700 websites were blocked in the space of a month in the king’s name and around 10 people have been threatened after being accused of insulting the monarchy. Reporters Without Borders is issuing a report on 9 February giving its findings as regards the violations of freedom of expression that have been carried out in the king’s name since last autumn. Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard will also address this message to King Rama IX with the aim of informing him about the censorship and arrests being carried out in his name: “Your Majesty, we humbly appeal to you to use your power and authority to obtain the withdrawal of the charges brought against Jonathan Head, Giles Ji Ungpakorn, Sulak Sivaraksa, Jakrapob Penkair, Suwicha Thakor, Chotisak Onsoong and Jitra Korchadej and to grant Harry Nicolaides a royal pardon.” ————————-Join the cyberdemonstration News February 9, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Demonstrate to free Harry Nicolaides and download the report on the abuses of the lese majeste crimes in Thailand ThailandAsia – Pacific Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years News Organisation Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Follow the news on Thailand Receive email alerts ThailandAsia – Pacific 205 days of detention.

Since 31 CDFIs received the first CDFI Program awards ($35.5 million from the CDFI Fund) in 1996, the CDFI Fund has awarded more than $1.5 billion through 20 rounds, building a nationwide network of more than 950 CDFIs covering all states. All CDFIs are focused on empowering the communities they serve.”Today’s awards highlight how much the CDFI Program has contributed in its 20 year history towards building a strong network of CDFIs across the country,” CDFI Fund Director Annie Donovan said. “These important community partners are not only on the frontlines of economically distressed communities providing needed capital and credit, they are building a more inclusive economy which benefits the nation as a whole.”On Friday, 152 organizations received a total of $182.3 million in Financial Assistance and Technical Assistance awards (including 28 first-time recipients) through the Fiscal Year 2015 round of the CDFI program. More than $439 million in funding was requested from a total of 374 organizations.”Today’s awards highlight how much the CDFI Program has contributed in its 20 year history towards building a strong network of CDFIs across the country.”A total of 43 organizations received $19.6 million in Financial Assistance and Technical Assistance from the NACA Program, which is designed to encourage the creation and strengthening of Native CDFIs. This includes seven first-time recipients.
