Maff Studio is the successor to Maff Apartment, which dates from the year 2007. While Maff Apartment is situated on an attic floor in a town house looking out over the city, Maff Studio is an autonomous building in the smallest building block of the city fabric, the ground-level working-class house. Maff Studio was designed as a hotel suite without a hotel. The city around it, with its numerous different functions and attractions, provides the functions traditionally associated with the hotel service package. The service level and luxury in a hotel are the prime qualities and determinators of price for the suite. For Maff Studio, the prima qualities are the interior space and its close proximity the the city which provides all the additional services for its guests.

Walfadjri media group hounded as President Wade resists pressure to go

first_img November 27, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Senegal The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa SenegalAfrica RSF decries exceptional press freedom violations in Senegal Reporters Without Borders is worried by a sharp decline in relations between the government and the media in Senegal amid a wave of protests against President Abdoulaye Wade, who announced on 14 July in Dakar that he planned to “keep hold of the helm come hell or high water.”Harassment of the Walfadjri media group has intensified in the past month or so. Four journalists with the daily Walfadjri l’Aurore were summoned to the Department of Criminal Investigations (DIC) on 13 July over a long article critical of the president’s aides. One of its correspondents was threatened by a policeman on 26 June over his coverage of anti-government demonstrations. And two journalists with the daily Walf Grand-Place were convicted of libel on 14 June, shortly after the government accused the Walfadjri group of inciting an uprising and civil disobedience.“We are disturbed to see the authorities targeting the Walfadjri group and the media in general just seven months before a presidential election and amid a month-old wave of serious anti-government protests, but we are not surprised,” Reporters Without Borders said. “President Wade and his government have long been showing a lack of good faith towards the media by, for example, pledging to decriminalize media offences and then not making good on their promises. We fear that the authorities will take advantage of the current, potentially destabilizing climate to silence critical journalists, especially as a proposal by the broadcasting regulatory authority could open the way to large-scale censorship.”The four Walfadjri l’Aurore journalists who were summoned to the DIC on 13 July were former publisher Abdourahmane Camara and reporters Charles Gaïky Diène, Yakhya Massaly and Mohamed Mboyo, who had all signed a front-page article the previous day headlined, “Liars, aggressors and embezzlers – the Republic’s hoodlums.”They were interrogated for more than 10 hours about the article, which contained allegations against nine of the president’s aides, including current ministers. They were finally released in the absence of a main author, although Walfadjri group CEO Sidi Lamine Niasse declared himself to be the current publisher and as such responsible for the article.Two weeks before that, on 26 June, the Walfajdri group’s correspondent in Mbacké (190 km east of Dakar), El Modou Guève, was roughed up by Boly Gaye, a police officer critical of his coverage of demonstrations three days earlier against the president’s plan to amend the constitution.Finally, after several postponements, a Dakar court passed a one-month suspended prison sentence on 14 June on Walf Grand-Place editor Jean Meissa Diop and reporter Ndiogou Cissé in a criminal libel action brought by Farba Senghor, the president’s propaganda chief and former agricultural minister, over a front-page article by Cissé in the newspaper on 14 January about alleged embezzlement by Senghor. As the newspaper’s owner, the Walfadjri group was ordered to pay 3 million CFA francs (4,573 euros) in damages.Amid all the unrest, the National Council for Broadcasting Regulation (CNRA) has drafted a bill which, by amending articles 1, 4 and 26 of the January 2006 law creating the CNRA, would enable it to censor radio and TV stations. Although opposed by communication minister and government spokesman Moustapha Guirassy, the CNRA said it wanted additional powers in order to put an immediate stop to “abuses, excesses and violations by certain media.”Under the amended version of article 26, the CNRA would be able to order a radio or TV station to stop broadcasting immediately and would be able to impose sanctions “ranging from suspension of all of part of its programmes to the complete withdrawal of its broadcasting permit, and including financial sanctions ranging from a fine of 2 to 10 million francs or a daily penalty of 100,000 francs for failure to comply with a CNRA decision.” A decision on the proposed bill has been temporarily shelved.Senegal is ranked 93rd out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Photo : President Abdoulaye Wade (Gianluigi Guercia / AFP) Organisation SenegalAfrica March 5, 2021 Find out more July 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Walfadjri media group hounded as President Wade resists pressure to go Newscenter_img Receive email alerts RSF_en to go further News Reports Help by sharing this information RSF asks Senegal to amend its new press law January 8, 2021 Find out more Newslast_img read more

SaaS: On-Demand Platforms Start to Take Shape

first_imgAs On-Demand / Software as a Service (SaaS) technologies and products become more accepted, platforms for hosting and developing these next-generation applications are starting to take shape.Companies are beginning to feel more secure with third party companies managing critical data needed to run their businesses.  While SaaS apps haven’t been perfect in delivering 99.99% uptime, company in-house systems typically don’t have a better performance record. deserves the credit for demonstrating the viability of the SaaS model.  On-demand CRM applications from Salesforce and others have been successful in their ability to provide information often times to employees located in remote locations.  But SaaS is also beginning to successfully move to serve application areas that are typically used primarily by your average office-bound employee.  A good example is the on-demand ERP offering available by Workday, a company founded by Dave Duffield, founder of PeopleSoft.Once the dynamics of a new software technology appear viable, platforms, tools and services to support development are sure to follow.  And that’s what’s happening. is leading that initiative too with thier Java-based Apex development platform.Marc Benioff, CEO of, has plans to introduce Apex as the programming language for building on-demand applications to run within the Salesforce App-Exchange environment.  Applications built with Apex can be exposed via WSDL as Web Services.  Apex can also be used to customize or for building add-ons to existing applications.WebEx is trying to create a Salesforce-like Web Service ecosystem to compete, but Salesforce already has significant critical mass around their offerings that will make competition hard.  Salesforce is once again determined to prove that this next level of the Web Service ecosystem model can work.  And if they get it right, it is likely that they’ll see competition from companies like Amazon, Google and Microsoft.last_img read more

BJP leaders pay homage to Sena founder Bal Thackeray

first_imgLeaders of the BJP, including former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, offered tributes to Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray at his memorial at Shivaji Park on Sunday, his seventh death anniversary, even as the Sena is on the verge of exiting the NDA and may even form a government in Maharashtra with the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP).No Sena leader, except party chief Uddhav Thackeray’s personal secretary Milind Narvekar, was present to receive Mr. Fadnavis, who has been engaged in a war of words with Mr. Thackeray. The former CM, accompanied by former education minister Vinod Tawde, also encountered Sena workers shouting party slogans at him. The BJP leader, meanwhile, posted a 1.46-minute-long video on his Twitter page, comprising lines avout self-respect from Bal Thackeray’s speeches. The video seemed to be aimed at Uddhav Thackeray for aligning with the Congress and NCP, which are opposed to the idea of Hindutva. The video — captioned “Honourable Balasaheb gave us the mantra of having self-respect” — included the Sena founder’s remark saying: “Till the time this self-respect is alive, the country will have golden days. Otherwise nothing will happen. Everything will vanish.” Another line said, “Name and money. Once your name is defamed it will never return. Money will come and go. Preserve your name.” The video ends with a remark on the Hindu religion. “The saffron flag of the Hindu religion should fly higher and higher.” Ever since the Sena decided to dump the BJP and sought help from the other two parties, questions have been raised whether the party’s ideology of Hindutva allies with that of the Congress and NCP. All three parties have repeatedly said the issue will be addressed only when an alliance is sealed.last_img read more

How will Mexico line up vs. Wales?

first_imgMexico How will Mexico line up against Wales? Jon Arnold Click here to see more stories from this author in Los Angeles Last updated 1 year ago 03:35 5/29/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Hirving Lozano Mexico Frederic J. Brown Mexico Wales Mexico v Wales Friendlies El Tri manager Juan Carlos Osorio has to work with a limited group in Monday’s friendly match UPDATE: Chicharito, Tecatito leading the line against WalesLet the preparation continue. Mexico’s match Monday against Wales is the first of three friendly matches to help El Tri get ready for the World Cup in Russia. Really, Mexico has been preparing for the World Cup since September when it clinched qualification, or maybe even before that. The official build-up games, however, start now.Mexico’s defense is a bit thin heading into the contest, creating an opportunity for a player like America’s Edson Alvarez to slot into the starting XI and perhaps make enough of an impact that he ends up in Russia. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Diego Reyes and Hector Moreno are coming off injuries, as is Andres Guardado, and won’t play. Carlos Salcedo and Marco Fabian both were in training Monday, but only recently finished their Eintracht Frankfurt season. Giovani dos Santos and Jonathan dos Santos also trained after playing Friday with the LA Galaxy.Miguel Layun and Alfredo Talavera are yet to join up with the team, while Rafa Marquez could not travel to the match because of visa issues.As Goal does before each Mexico match, we’ve looked at three potential starting XIs for El TrI:Standard 4-3-3gfx mexico wales 433The 4-3-3 has been Osorio’s preferred formation during his tenure, and he has the players to make it work Monday. This would see a back four of Edson Alvarez and Jesus Gallardo getting minutes on the outside with left-footed center-back Oswaldo Alanis on the left and Hugo Ayala on the right.It also sees Monterrey midfielder Jesus Molina in the middle, where he would be tasked with breaking up attacks from Wales’ Aaron Ramsey and Harry Wilson. Mexico didn’t take a true defensive midfielder to the Confederations Cup, but Molina’s inclusion on the preliminary roster hints that Osorio may change that this time around.Up front, I’ve gone with Hirving Lozano on the right and Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona on the left with Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez in the middle. It’s the strongest group Mexico has at the moment, and Chicharito and Corona could use rhythm after seeing only sporadic minutes in the European season. Lozano is on the right with Corona on the left after seeing how they played in Sunday’s training session, but they’ll likely switch during the match and could start on the opposite sides.Trying three at the backgfx mexico wales 343This alignment would get Jurgen Damm into the starting lineup. The Tigres winger seems like a long shot but does have experience playing in a role that requires him to track back defensively and his speed is something Osorio has enjoyed exploiting off the bench.At the back, Gallardo simply moves up to play in a position more similar to the one he plays at Tigres, while Alvarez slots into the right center-back position.Erick Gutierrez was called in as potential injury cover for Andres Guardado, who Mexico is optimistic will be at 100 per cent ahead of the World Cup. Even so, he may get a look Monday night, especially in a role where he’s asked both to get forward and help with defending.Really going for itgfx mexico wales all outIf Osorio wanted to, and I don’t think he does, he could put what essentially is his best possible XI on the field and have them go out to beat Wales. Preparation for the World Cup is more important, and this game should be a chance for some of the fringe players to attempt to win spots 21 or 22 on the plane. Osorio did hope to have his final 23 ready by this point, though, so perhaps he’d inset Eintracht Frankfurt duo Carlos Salcedo and Marco Fabian into the group. That could be motivated by wanting Salcedo to get more time as the right-back in a back four, where he has played for Mexico but rarely plays on the club level.It’s also possible that one of the Dos Santos brothers edges into the starting XI, but after both played Friday for the LA Galaxy and with each coming off of injuries, it seems like an unnecessary risk that Osorio wouldn’t have any desire to take.last_img read more
