The house is structured by two large volumes that dialogue and define its layout on the ground. A large horizontal prism sits along its length and contains the social sectors of the house. Next to it, an imposing cube is attached containing the private sectors of it. The morphological contrast of both, marks and hierarchizes the entrance to the house, which acts as a link between the two volumes.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteRegarding its functional distribution, there are no grays in the proposal. Social activities take place in the concrete volume distributed in a gradient of privacy from the kitchen to the barbecue area. The arrangement is not random, since the large lateral extension of said volume allows a perfect integration with the environment, and the permanent use of visuals and lighting. A central internal yard in said volume connects both gardens of the house in perfect harmony with the surrounding environment, thus generating the incorporation of vegetation and environmental quality inside the house. As for private activities, a large study / playroom acts as an anteroom and auditive filter to the bedrooms and master suite. An industrial-style semi-imperial staircase that ends in a mezzanine, hierarchizes and resolves the space by generating a double height in it.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteFollowing the great formal contrast of the volumetric composition, the structure and materiality is resolved in two different ways. The social prism is resolved entirely by beams, partitions and exposed concrete slabs, giving it great character and for its part the private cube is clad in black cementitious brick, giving visual solidity to the extruded volume for the generation of windows.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteProject gallerySee allShow lessPOPL Restaurant / Spacon & XSelected ProjectsRB Pharma Office / Galant I.D.

Actively listening helps to discover donors’ passion and raise more support

first_imgThe difference between successful people and unsuccessful peopleI love what Tony Robbins says in his book, “Awaken The Giant Within.”  Perhaps as a fundraiser we can learn from this.“The main difference between the people who seemed to be successful in any area and those who are not is because, successful people asked better questions, and as a result, they got better answers.  The way to make effective new connections is initiated by quality of questions we ask others.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 “If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.” We need to spend more time in preparing to ask the right questions to our donors and really listen to their answers; thoughtful and genuine questions; relevant and inspiring questions.  When we meet prospective donors for the first time, just become a learning machine:learn about their liveswhat they want to achievewhy they want to get involved with charitywhat are their philanthropic ambitionsAnd the best way to become the learning machines is by initiating questions.  Fundraisers need to be masters of asking questions before they ask for money and support.Andrew Olsen, the author of Rainmaking: The Fundraiser’s Guide to Landing Big Gifts, says:“uncovering someone’s philanthropic passion is simple. You ask key questions, then shut up and listen. I mean really listen.”  197 total views,  5 views today Actively listening helps to discover donors’ passion and raise more support What fundraisers can learn from a good doctors?One of my mentors once said that a good doctor doesn’t solve your health problem by giving you the right medicine. He solves your health problem by asking you the right questions and diagnosing what problem he needs to solve. For example, where is the pain? When did it start? What you been eating? Have you taken any medication?  The more we focus on asking questions and getting to know our donor the better we it make for  ourselves when it comes to making the ‘Ask’ for the gift. Every donation has a story behind itBefore we try to tell our story at length, we need to realise that every potential donation has a story behind it and our job is to ask the right questions to explore that story, about what really motivates the donor – why they want to get involved. I have found that it’s not only the answers we know, but thoughtful questions we ask to our donors that helps to pave the way for donors to get inspired, motivated and persuaded by themselves.  Because, if you don’t know what problem they want to solve, you cannot offer the solutions and all your knowledge about your cause will be useless.   Howard Lake | 3 August 2018 | News Tagged with: active listening donorlove donorscenter_img  198 total views,  6 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Here are the top 6 reasons how asking questions and really listening to our donors can help us:1. Helping them to open up with you2. Building rapport and inspiring your donor3. Gathering information4. Showing the care by listening to them5. Understanding your organisation from your donors perspective6. Helping them to reflect and connect with our cause and find the deep rooted passions why they want to solve the specific problem and how they see it to be solved.Always remember what Eugène Ionesco once said:“It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question.’’ Are you a fundraiser who spends a lot of time preparing for meetings before you go to meet with your potential supporters or partners?  Particularly for the first meeting?  And do you feel that despite doing everything you could, you are not receiving the desired results? If you can invest three to five minutes right now to continue reading this post, it might help you to learn just one key change you need to adopt to gain the desired results. When we are preparing for these important meetings, everyone in the organisation, whether it be fundraising colleagues or programme teams or trustees, everyone is happy to help and provide us with material and stories and facts and reports.However, no-one ever seems to tell us this:“Look, make sure you ask the right questions and really listen to them.”Everyone gives us the answers, but no one trains us to ask questions.Albert Einstein said: Advertisement Donors like to talk but not to interrogateThere is a fine line in making the donor feel like they are being interrogated and demonstrating that we are asking questions because we are interested in what they have to say.Avoid questions after questions. Ask the right question at the right time, and share your own thoughts and experiences where appropriate without an indication that it is about you.

Journalist faces year in prison, 100,000 dollars in damages in libel case

first_img Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica April 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist faces year in prison, 100,000 dollars in damages in libel case February 24, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Reporters Without Borders urges the Congolese judicial authorities to come to their senses in the case of Nicaise Kibel Bel’Oka, the publisher of the bimonthly Les Coulisses in Béni, in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, who is facing a possible jail term and heavy damages for supposedly libelling a local customs official.On 5 April, Béni’s prosecutor requested a one-year jail sentence for Bel’Oka in the lawsuit brought against him by Crispin Youmba Akilimali, the deputy director of the customs department (DGDA) in Béni, over a June 2012 article about alleged customs fraud.“Not only would the one-year jail term be disproportionate if Bel’Oka really had defamed the plaintiff, but it is also absurd because he did not,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the Congolese judicial authorities to see reason and we ask the Nord-Kivu court not to convict Bel’Oka for just doing his duty to inform his fellow citizens.”Akilimali is suing Bel’Oka for 100,000 dollars in damages over the article, which reported that 977 tons of timber were exported on 18 May 2012 without being registered by the Béni DGDA. After Akilimali filed his libel suit, the prosecutor’s office questioned Bel’Oka about the article for two hours on 27 September.After seven hearings since the trial began on 11 January, the court is now considering its verdict. It is just examining the libel complaint against Bel’Oka and is not looking at the alleged fraud by Akilimali and the DGDA.“We fear that Bel’Oka will be convicted of criminal libel because the prosecutor’s office seems to have sided with the plaintiff throughout this case,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Bel’Oka has nonetheless produced documents proving that Akilimali permitted fraud by under-estimating the quantity of wood being exported.”Winner of the 2009 CNN award for press freedom in Africa, Bel’Oka already served a prison term in 2004. He told Reporters Without Borders: “The Congolese defamation law does not protect the media. It protects the strongest, those who have money and power.”More information about media freedom in the DRC.
