The architectural solution stages a play of two cubes stacked on top of each other. Their delicate appearance conjures up lightness that contrasts with the dimension as well as the choice of material, “heavy” exposed concrete. This tension between the image of the house and the provoked experience-based knowledge of its “impossibility” induces fascination. Save this picture!© Bruno KlomfarThe play with the abstract that inspires the sculptural quality of the building is continued in the finishing. Mainly two materials are used: an immaterial white for ceilings and walls and the dark wood of the smoked oak that forms the floors and is also found in window frames and doors. The entrant immediately sees the spatial layout as it emulates the form of the building on the outside. From the entrance at the intersection between ground floor and the upper story placed in an orthogonal direction one floor above, a cross-shaped corridor layout can be distinguished on two levels. The living quarters on the ground floor with a view of the garden are accented by the dining room that projects into the garden in line with the upper story that juts out of the building one floor above. The inserted light shaft opens to the office and a lodger flat. The bedrooms in the upper structure offer a panoramic view of the nearby lake due to the altitude and the orthogonal twist of the building.

Lam backs Hong Kong electoral changes excluding opponents

first_img TAGS  Twitter HONG KONG (AP) — Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam gave her clear support Tuesday to electoral reforms that would likely further exclude opposition voices and cement Beijing’s control over the semi-autonomous Chinese city’s politics. Her comments came a day after a top Beijing official signaled major changes would be coming to ensure Hong Kong is run by “patriots,” a sign that China intends to no longer tolerate dissenting voices, 23 years after the former British colony was handed over to Chinese rule with a promise it could maintain its own rights and freedoms for 50 years. Following China’s imposition of a sweeping national security law on the city last year, authorities have moved to expel members of the city’s Legislative Council deemed insufficiently loyal and rounded up veteran opposition leaders on charges including illegal assembly and colluding with foreign forces. Government critics and Western governments accuse Beijing of going back on its word and effectively ending the “one country, two systems” framework for governing the dynamic Asian financial hub. Lam said political strife and unrest in the city, including anti-government protests in 2019 as well as protests in 2014, showed there were always some people who are “rather hostile” to the central authorities in China. “I can understand that the central authorities are very concerned, they do not want the situation to deteriorate further in such a way that ‘one country, two systems’ cannot be implemented,” Lam said at a regular news briefing. The Hong Kong government on Tuesday also said it plans to require district councilors — many of whom are directly elected by their constituents and tend to be more politically independent — to pledge allegiance to Hong Kong as a special region of China. Currently, only the chief executive, high officials, executive council members, lawmakers and judges are required to take an oath of office. Those who are found to take the oath improperly or who do not uphold the city’s mini-constitution, the Basic Law, will be disqualified and barred from running for office for five years, according to the Secretary for Constitutional and Mainland Affairs, Erick Tsang. Opposition figures swept district council elections following the 2019 protests and the Beijing authorities have since sought to prevent them from exerting influence on other aspects of the political system. The move comes after an oath-taking controversy in 2016 ion which six pro-democracy lawmakers were expelled from the legislature after court rulings that they had not properly pledged allegiance because they mispronounced words, added words or read the oath extremely slowly. Hong Kong’s legislature is expected to deliberate the draft legal amendments on March 17. On Monday, Xia Baolong, director of Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council, said Hong Kong could only be ruled by “patriots,” which exclude those who lobby other countries for foreign sanctions and “troublemakers.” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin added to those assertions Tuesday, saying that “people in important positions, holding important powers and shouldering important administration responsibilities must be staunch patriots. It is a matter of course.” The electoral changes are expected to be discussed and possibly passed at next month’s meeting of the National People’s Congress, China’s rubber-stamp legislature, and its advisory body, the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. They will likely take the form of a redistribution of votes in the 1,200-member electoral commission that selects Hong Kong’s chief executive, subject to Beijing’s veto. The commission is composed of voting blocs intended to represent Hong Kong’s various economic, educational and social sectors, along with its largely Beijing-dominated political institutions. The one exception is the 117 commission members drawn from among the city’s 458 local district councilors. With all other commission members deemed to be firmly under Beijing’s control, speculation has risen that the 117 district council votes will be transferred to another bloc, possibly that of Hong Kong’s representatives to the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, ensuring that they will follow Beijing’s directives. It remains unclear whether Lam, who is deeply unpopular among Hong Kong’s population, will seek a second five-year term in next year’s poll. Another possibility is that China will close what it calls “loopholes” in the election for members of the Legislative Council, now entirely dominated by pro-Beijing legislators since opposition deputies resigned en masse last year after four were expelled for being insufficiently loyal to the government. Lam postponed elections for the council last year, citing concerns over COVID-19, in a move largely seen as designed to prevent an opposition victory. Of the 70 members of the council, half are directly elected from geographic constituencies while the rest are drawn from trade and other special interest groups. Changes could include preventing district counselors from also sitting in the body or simply raising the requirements for loyalty and patriotism above the already stringent levels they are set at now.

Sussing psychometrics

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. With conflicting reviews and an endless range, it is important for companiesto ensure the tests they use on their people are credible and meet theorganisation’s requirements. Keith Rodgers investigatesFaced with thousands of different types of tests, lingering controversy overinternet-based measurement techniques and a host of legislative complications,it is hardly surprising that some HR managers approach psychometric testingwith a degree of trepidation. The occasional horror story about its misuse –from firms that fired individuals because their results were ‘wrong’, toorganisations that adopt it as the basis for redundancy selection – haven’texactly helped. The reality, however, is that psychometric testing is widely used among TheTimes’ 1,000 companies and beyond. Championed in many instances byhighly-qualified professionals from the psychology field, it has a longpedigree and well-established best practices. Not only are online mechanismsmaturing, but the application of testing continues to expand into new fields,complementing its traditional role in the recruitment process. Applications arenow in areas such as employee development, managerial decision-making andimproving workplace relationships (see below). Organisations that use this testing, however, do need to bear certain challengesin mind. Robert McHenry, chairman of OPP, says the first priority is findingthe most suitable instruments to use. He believes there are some 5,000published personality tests available, of which only 20 are top quality. Thereare another few thousand aptitude offerings, so it is important to be confidentthe test is credible and meets your organisation’s specific requirements. In addition, the quality of reporting remains a concern. Many computer-basedtests generate crude results that are little more than a series of pre-written‘observations’ triggered by the associated response. Testing output isultimately only of value when the candidate’s answers are analysed in thecontext of other biographical information, and interpretation is key. E-testingcompany ASE, for example, matches individual psychometric reports against itsclients’ competency frameworks, examining the output against the specificrequirements of each role. Likewise, feedback to respondents – whether job applicants or employees –needs to be carefully handled. OPP asks customers to sign up to a code ofethics that covers a number of sensitive issues, from basics such as keepingresults confidential, to ensuring employers don’t use the output to challengeindividuals about what they think or feel. “Testing can be intrusive,” says McHenry, “so you need tomake sure you protect the integrity of the individual.” This awareness extends to legislative responsibilities, and organisationsneed to ensure that their procedures clearly meet their responsibilities underthe demands of race, sex, disability and data protection legislation. Experts also advise HR practitioners to be inclusive. One large financialservices organisation found that its biggest challenge in adopting onlinerecruitment was gaining acceptance from managers used to handling CVs andmanaging the process themselves. Faced with a mix of practical and emotionalresistance, it had to invest significant amounts of time managing expectationsand demonstrating tangible benefits. Roy Davis, head of communications at SHL,argues that HR should also involve IT from the outset when online testingproviders are being selected, given that there will be security and othertechnical implications. Above all, as Neville Osrin of Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow points out, thereis a danger in putting too much credence on the tests. One company heencountered fired staff on the basis of their responses, regardless of theiractual performances at work. The key is to contextualise, viewing tests as oneelement of a broader exercise. Looking forward, psychometric testing will increasingly be seen in thecontext of a broader human capital management remit, and its effectiveness willultimately be measured in new ways. As companies look for a return on the timeand money they invest in testing, organisations will seek statisticalvalidation that will help them hire the right kind of talented individuals, whostay with the organisation long term. What is psychometric testing and why do organisations use it?While many people think ofpsychometric testing as a recruitment tool, a number of organisations areadopting it to help with employee development, management training andpersonality-based workplace issues.Andrew Hill, managing psychologist at occupationalpsychologists Pearn Kandola, has used testing to help organisations with a widerange of development goals, including improved decision-making and conflictresolution.Rooted in Jungian and Freudian psychology, the tests helpindividuals understand key dimensions of their personality, such as whetherthey are introverts or extroverts, how they gather information, how they makedecisions and whether they tend to seek closure of an issue or hear out all thepossibilities. This process helps establish key differentiators in the waypeople work. Are they detail-focused, or do they like the big picture? Do theystep outside a problem and tackle a high-risk decision logically, or do theyput themselves into the situation and assess risk in terms of whether theywould personally be comfortable with the answer?These factors have come into play in numerous scenarios. At oneclient site with a high focus on worker safety, the tests allowed two feuding middlemanagers to understand what motivated each other and they learned to worktogether more constructively. Managers at the same site were also able toanalyse their own decision-making capabilities.Neville Osrin, of Hewitt Bacon & Woodrow, also uses testingto assist in personal development. In a 360-degree appraisal, for example, amanager may receive feedback explaining that they are inaccessible.Psychometric testing will help them analyse their behaviour towards staff andunderstand which innate traits they need to counter-balance.
