On a sloppy narrow land measuring 6,5 x 25 meter, 3 programs were built within steps and planter boxes arranged naturally as a hardscape stretched from the lowest to the highest point of the land. They are 2 lofts serves as guest houses and a 2 story house for the property owner at the top. The unfriendly 30 degrees contour created more than 10 meter height differences between facades that emerged from the two roads attached at both ends of the stretch, and it was in fact treated as the site power which brought up into the site planning as the major theme of how the building masses should perform and interact within each other.Save this picture!© NilaiasiaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© NilaiasiaBy applying terracing strategy, building masses were arranged in a way that each of the roofs can also function as a balcony for the floor above. Every floor has their own private balcony. The owner wished a vacation cottage that suits not only for private use but also serves as a Bed and Breakfast property in a separate two guest units below using the lower road as their entrance. Serving the requested function was then rather complementary whereas creating differentiation among other earlier rental property in the area felt more mandatory considering the unexplored contour by if not all, most of the property. Here, the contour is the main attraction.Save this picture!© NilaiasiaBuilt inside a residential complex partially surrounded by densely populated settlements where they stand also on sloppy land with its unique character on circulation between alleys, then it may become interesting if the similar quality of space experience adopted into the site plan thus creates a certain sensation when moving inside from one end to another within the landscape. Typically a property on a narrow plot is built by maximizing claim on its programmatic space against the land. Here, though the land width is only 6,5 meter, site planning is, on the contrary, minimizing it and replaces it with an outdoor circulation which connects the 3 dwellings that are inter-dependent with each other in a form of alleyways along with its outdoor properties.Save this picture!© NilaiasiaThis results in a unique interaction throughout the movement into the cottages. The same interaction that happens inside the alleys of the dense settlement at the surrounding area or at any other typical steep habitation in Bandung. However, this one happens in a small 200 m2 plot. Bringing in the outdoor qualities within the masses has in-fact not only enriches the space experience inside, but it also seems to enlarge the narrow width of the plot which is likely because such potential on the availability of alleyways and landscaping should usually happen on a large plot area.Save this picture!© NilaiasiaProject gallerySee allShow lessCanteen and Locker Room of Sarmad Iron and Steel Co. / Makanpaydar Consulting CompanySelected ProjectsAD Classics: Prentice Women’s Hospital / Bertrand GoldbergArchitecture Classics Share Projects Indonesia CopyAbout this officeRDMAOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCidadapIndonesiaPublished on October 07, 2018Cite: “White Cliff House / RDMA” 06 Oct 2018.

Read more in the previous article.Registration opened the morning’s events at 7 a.m. and was followed by a one-mile fun run at 8 a.m. and the 5K Run at 8:30 a.m.Dogs in capes ran alongside their owners.Runners, some with dogs on leashes and some pushing strollers, circuited the 5-kilometer track that started and finished at 100 W. Abram Street.Other activities included a “Puppy Power Pavilion,” Kids Zone with bounce houses, a costume contest and dance performances.Michelle Tolar said she had run in multiple 5Ks hosted by volunteer organizations, but she and her two friends chose CASA’s 5K because of its relevance to their careers in education.“We specifically picked one [5K] that is for a cause we think is important,” said Tolar.CASA volunteer advocates are the only unpaid representatives in the courtroom and act as the “eyes and ears of the court,” said Don Binnicker, chief executive officer of CASA of Tarrant County.Don Binnicker, CEO of CASA of Tarrant County, poses as “Batman.”Binnicker, who dressed in full costume as “Batman” at the event, said CASAs speed up the process of placing children into stable homes.“It helps them get out of the system quicker when we advocate for them,” said Binnicker.Last year, CASA volunteers helped serve 880 children in Tarrant County, said Binnicker. About 20 of those children were helped directly by the $30,000 raised from last year’s Superhero Run, wrote Caitlyn Ussery, volunteer coordinator for CASA.But there are still about 200 children with a history of abuse or neglect in Tarrant County who need CASA volunteers to advocate for them, according to CASA of Tarrant County’s website.One of those volunteers is Carol St. Onge, who took on a new case in July.She said an event like the Superhero Run raises awareness to the fact that about 200 children still need CASA volunteers to advocate for them. That number is only going to increase, said Onge.“We need more people to step up,” said Onge. “It’s only gonna get worse.” City to approve Westcliff rezoning, tackle loopholes that allow “stealth dorms” Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

A Bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, MR Shah and R Subhash Reddy granted adjournment for six weeks after Kapil Sibal suggested that it is better for the court to first consider the pending review against the June 2019 order which dismissed the ex-IPS officer’s plea to examine additional witnesses in the trial. He submitted that this was a case of “mistrial” and “travesty of justice”.”This is case of complete mistrial”, he told the bench.”I am saying that this is a case of complete mistrial because my witnesses have not been called. How 23 witnesses have been examined?. I am not on merits at all. I am telling you the procedure adopted. It is binding on every court”, he said.”Out of 300 witnesses, they called only 37″, the senior lawyer added. He informed the bench that the Supreme Court had dismissed Bhatt’s plea for examination of additional witnesses in June 2019 and that review against that order is pending. He suggested that it is better if the court hears that review first and consider the present plea in open court.”My request is to please postpone this matter. First hear the review first. Please hear it in open court”, Sibal told the bench Sibal submitted that the case was related to the death of an accused, who was taken into custody during communal riots in 1990. The person died several days after he was released from custody.”Five years passed pursuant to the investigation and then a summary report was filed in 1995. I had nothing to do with it then. The Magistrate dismissed it and then the State filed an Appeal. I had no role to play in this. From 1996 to 2011, I was not involved. Then suddenly State decided to withdraw the Application and I opposed it. The Court passed an order saying that there was some political ramification. There was no stay, no delay. Then the State submitted 300 witnesses. From 1990 to now, I have not got a stay from any court, I had no role to play in any of this. Then at the last moment, the State chose to not show some vital witnesses. I filed an Application”, Sibal submitted.He argued that Bhatt was in no way responsible for the delay in trial and the proceedings were stayed at the instance of other accused officers. BACKGROUND Bhatt was directed to undergo life-imprisonment by a Sessions Court in Jamnagar in June 2019 for involvement in custodial death of Jamjodhpur resident Prabhudas Vaishnani in November 1990. The officer, who had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court in 2011 accusing the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the 2002 riots, is currently lodged at Palanpur jail.The instant SLP filed in the Supreme Court challenges the refusal of the Gujarat High Court to suspend his sentence.In October 2019, the Gujarat High Court had refused to suspend his sentence observing he had had scant respect for Courts and had deliberately tried to mislead them. “..it appears that the applicant has scant respect for the Courts and is in the habit of misusing the process of law and scandalizing the Court,” a Division Bench of Justices Bela M. Trivedi and AC Rao of the High Court had observed. Earlier, Justice VB Mayani, who sat on a Division Bench with Justice Harsha Devani, had recused saying “not before me” when the bail application of Bhatt and Pravinsinh Zala, another convict, came up. In the petition filed before the Supreme Court, Bhat has argued that the High Court had failed to appreciate the fact that the State Government started prosecuting him only after 2011 when he came out against Narendra Modi. Till then, the stand of the State had been that there was no case against Bhatt, the plea stated. The incident relates to the death of one Prabhudas Madhavji Vaishnani in November 1990, which was allegedly due to custodial torture. At the time Bhatt was the Assistant Superintendent of Police Jamnagar, who, along with other officers, took into custody about 133 persons, including Vaishnani, for rioting during a Bharat Bandh. Vaishnani, who was kept in custody for nine days, died ten days after release on bail. As per medical records, the cause of death was renal failure. Following his death, an FIR was registered against Bhatt and few other officers for custodial torture. Cognizance of the case was taken by the Magistrate in 1995. However, the trial remained stayed till 2011 due to stay by the Gujarat High Court. Later the stay was vacated and trial commenced. Bhatt has contended that the High Court failed to see that the alleged custodial death happened many days after the release of the prisoner from police custody on November 18, 1990. The IPS officer, who was sacked in 2015, approached the Supreme Court alleging that although nearly 300 witnesses were listed by the prosecution, only 32 were actually examined in trial, leaving out many crucial witnesses. Three police men who were part of the team which investigated the offence, and few other witnesses who denied any incident of custodial violence were not examined by the prosecution, stated Bhatt. He argued that the case against him was a part of “political vendetta”. In April 2011, Bhatt had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court accusing the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the 2002 riots. He claimed to have attended a meeting convened by the then CM, Mr. Modi, on February 27, 2002, the day of the communal riots, when instructions were allegedly given to the State Police to not take any action against the perpetrators of violence. The Court appointed SIT however gave a clean chit to Modi. In 2015, Bhatt was removed from the police service, on the ground of “unauthorised absence”. In October 2015, the Supreme Court dismissed Bhatt’s plea for constituting a special investigation team (SIT) for cases filed against him by Gujarat Government. The Court observed that, “Bhatt was in active touch with leaders of rival political party, was being tutored by NGOs, was involved in politics and activism of creating pressure, even upon 3-judge bench of this court, amicus and many others”.

Reading with memories of Jessica

She was only eight years old.“I miss Jessica so much and I cherish the time we had together,” Pearson said. “And, it’s the time that I spent reading to her that is so special to me, so memorable. Jessica loved for me to read to her and I loved to read to her. She had hundreds of books and we read them all, over and over.”Pearson said the children at the Brundidge Head Start Center are close to her heart. And, there was a strong tugging in her heart to see the wide-eyed wonder of children as a story was read to them.

The children were attentive and so appreciative of having someone take time to come in and read to them.“This has been a wonderful day,” Pearson said on Thursday. “To hear the laughter of little children and to see their bright eyes and sweet smiles is a wonderful thing. I miss Jessica’s laughter and smile. I miss reading to her. This day has done me so much good. I thank them for letting me come.”Pearson gave each child a gift bag and brought one for each of the teachers. She also presented a check to the Head Start Center in the amount of $70 from the mayor, city manager and the council members.When Pearson, who is a member of the Brundidge City Council, visited the Head Start Center in Brundidge during the Week of the Young Child activities, she learned that the Center has wants that can’t be met with the available funding. She decided to do something about that.She asked the mayor and other members of the council if they would like to make a monetary donation to the Center to purchase some of the items on its wish list.“They were all so willing to give so that these children could have some of the extra things that bring smiles and happiness to them,” Pearson said. “The children are the future of our community.

Lincat builds on boilers’ performance

first_imgCommercial catering equipment manufacturer Lincat, has improved the performance of its FilterFlow automatic water boilers, by extending the life of its in-built filter cartridges by 33%.This means the new cartridges will only need to be changed every 4,000 litres, instead of every 3,000, or every six months, whichever is reached first. The new filters will also be offered at the same price as the old, therefore reducing operating costs for the user.Nick McDonald, marketing director at Lincat, said: “As more outlets realise that a good hot drinks offer will drive food sales, we’re pleased to have been able to find a way to improve FilterFlow’s performance at no additional cost to our customers.”The firm said the built-in filter cartridge improves water flavour, and also prevents limescale build-up, which can damage performance over time.last_img read more

Press release: Pilot scheme launched to help build sustainable future for listed places of worship

first_imgA new scheme to help build a sustainable future for listed places of worship will be piloted in urban and rural areas in England, Heritage Minister Michael Ellis announced today.Expert advisors will work with listed buildings used by all faiths and denominations in Manchester and Suffolk to increase community engagement and vital heritage management skills.The projects, expected to begin in early autumn, will receive a total of £1.8 million over the next two years.Eligible listed places of worship in the pilot areas will be able to access a £500,000 minor repairs fund.The Taylor Review: Sustainability of English Churches and Cathedrals, which was published in December 2017, called for greater community use of Church of England buildings to help congregations raise income to pay for their upkeep.This new pilot scheme extends this support to all faiths or denominations in order to help worshippers better care for and protect their listed buildings.Fabric support officers will work within the two areas to provide high quality advice and develop maintenance and repair plans. These will ensure that routine repairs can be addressed immediately and prevent the development of more costly problems.Community support advisors will work with the custodians of listed places of worship to identify and strengthen relationships within their local area and develop greater community partnerships.Heritage Minister Michael Ellis said: “Britain has an incredible array of historic buildings important to all faiths which tell the story of our shared history and our communities. However the costs of caring for and protecting many listed places of worship can be prohibitive and lead many to fall into disrepair.“The innovative pilots I am announcing today will help unlock the community potential of these buildings and provide practical guidance so they can be preserved for future generations.”Deborah Lamb, Deputy Chief Executive of Historic England, said:“We are delighted that the Government is funding a new project to support the volunteers who care for historic places of worship. Buildings that are well looked after help to enrich the lives of people across England. They are special spaces to visit and can be enjoyed by anyone, whether for worship or not.“We know that keeping these buildings in good repair can be a challenge for congregations so we are excited by the potential of this pilot scheme, and look forward to playing our part in its success.”Bishop of Worcester, the Rt Revd Dr John Inge said: “Church buildings have always been a crucial part of the community life of this nation and the majority of them provide one or more form of social outreach or community facilities. In working with the government on reviewing their long-term sustainability, it has been gratifying to hear many stories of churches that understand their Christian mission in terms of service to the community.“These pilots will model a new type of partnership between the Church and the Government, investing in people and buildings side-by-side to ensure churches are able to continue to fulfil this function, whilst growing new opportunities to serve the people of England.”Notes to editors: Funding will be available across different faiths and denominations. The support officers will be based with the Church of England diocese of Manchester and St Edmundsbury and Ipswich.last_img read more
