The major constraints of this project, its steep site, compressed between existing buildings and very limited allowance of development volume have shaped the form of this house.

In order to provide shelter from the views of the passing- by road a layer of wooden sticks was wrapped around the big openings directed to the South – depending on the varying size of the openings they provide different degrees of shelter and intimacy.Save this picture!DiagramProject gallerySee allShow lessCAN MANA / Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & PartnersSelected ProjectsUpdate: Aspen Art Museum / Shigeru Ban ArchitectsArticles Share Year:  Photographs “COPY” Area:  220 m² Area:  220 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2008 CopyHouses•Sexten, Italy ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Projects Architects: Plasma Studio Area Area of this architecture project Italy 2008 CopyAbout this officePlasma StudioOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSextenHousesItalyPublished on August 11, 2013Cite: “Cube House / Plasma Studio” 11 Aug 2013.

Dell money must not be eaten in administration

first_imgTwitter Previous article‘Yes’ to rate drop and ‘no’ to service chargesNext articleDeath of missionary priest, Father Aengus Finucane admin A MEETING to discuss the administration of the recently announced 15 million euro payment for redundant Dell workers, has been arranged by the Labour MEP for Munster, Alan Kelly.The meeting will also include officials from the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He said the purpose is to examine how exactly the fund will be administered and to clarify the benefits it will bring to the former plant workers.“It is hoped that Dell workers can be represented on any committee that is administering the fund and it is important to remember that the money is not yet cleared by the European Parliament and the Council, but I expect it to be and will be lobbying to ensure it is,” he said.Emphasising that the money must be used for the benefit of the workers in areas of retraining and re-education, the MEP cautioned against it being “eaten up in administration”.Commenting on the importance of the fund for the Mid West region, Mr Kelly said the region is currently on its knees and it is vital to make the very most of every single cent from the fund.

They are never tested on animals and are developed using the safest available resources—from the latest scientific advances to botanical extracts used for centuries.

Nageswara Rao, Justice Navin Sinha and Justice Indu Malhotra issued notice on Wednesday on a petition filed by Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind seeking directions to remove the Government control over the appointment of the Chairperson and Members of National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions. The petition also seeks directions from the Apex Court for constitution of a committee by the Chief Justice of India on recommendations of whom the Chairperson and Members of the Commission should be appointed. BACKGROUND OF THE PLEA The petition is filed by Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind, an organization established in 1919, with an objective of protecting Islamic culture, its heritage and tradition along with another petitioner who is a social worker and a General Secretary of Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind. Union of India through Secretary, Ministry of Human Resource Development is the respondent in the matter. The petition seeks to protect the judicial independence by enforcing “judicial dominance” in appointments made to the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions thereby ensuring that the fundamental rights of minorities under Art. 30(1) of the Constitution is protected. The plea however clarifies that “The present petition is not limited to the Muslim community but is concerned with all the minority communities as defined under Sec. 2(f) of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act, 2004.” The primary genesis of the petition lies on the history of tribunalization of judiciary in India. The plea therefore relies on National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act, 2004 which was passed by the Parliament to constitute a National Commission for dealing with matters concerning minorities educational institutions. It also relies on Salaries and Allowances and Conditions of Service of Chairpersons and Other Members Rules of 2006 made in furtherance of the Act. According to Sec. 3 of the Act, the Central Govt. shall constitute a body to exercise the powers and to perform functions assigned to it under the provisions of the Act. The provision also talks about the composition of the commission which includes a Chairperson and 3 members nominated by the Central Govt. The Commission is conferred upon the powers of a Civil Court and also has the power to decide, adjudicate or determine the minority character of any minority educational institution. According to the petition, “Sec. 12(1) of the Act confers powers on the Commission to give decision or definitive judgment which has finality and an authoritativeness which are essential tests of judicial pronouncement.” The petition focuses on the aspect of abysmal rate of disposal of cases by the Commission. “Though the statistics of disposal of cases is not available in public domain, however, as per estimation, on an average 10 to 15 cases annually are disposed of on merits.” The plea states. According to the petitioner, the term of two members of the Commission got expired in December 2020 however, only one member remains in office whose term will expire in 2023. It is also stated that in 2018, Hon’ble Rtd. Justice Narendra Kumar Jain was appointed as the Chairperson and his term will expire in 2023. “Such appointments were made by the Central Govt without issuing any public advertisement and thus, are done without any effort to get the best of the people as members of the commission which omission makes these appointment arbitrary. The arbitrariness in the appointments is also manifest from the fact that out of 3 members, two members are from Sikh community whereas the Christian community which is a flag bearer in the field of education, has no representation in the Commission and the commission is also not represented by any member of Sunni Muslim community.” The plea states. PRAYER OF THE PETITIONERS Issue a writ of mandamus or any other writ, order or direction on the respondent to appoint the members of National Commission of Minority Educational Institutions in place of the outgoing members and all the future appointments/ nominations to fill future vacancies in the commission on recommendation by the Chief justice of India till the constitution of the National Commission.Pass any further orders as deem fit in the interest of justice.

Georgia police Sgt. Kelvin Ansari dies after being shot responding to robbery

first_imgWTOC (SAVANNAH, Ga.) — A veteran police sergeant in Savannah, Georgia, died after he and another officer were shot during a gunfight Saturday night while investigating a robbery, officials said.The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Sunday that the suspect in the fatal shooting of Sgt. Kelvin Ansari had also died from injuries suffered in Saturday night’s gun battle.Authorities later identified the suspect as 49-year-old Edward Fuller III.Ansari, a 10-year member of the Savannah Police Department and a U.S. Army veteran, died at a hospital from wounds suffered when he and another officer approached a car suspected of being involved in the robbery, police officials saidThe second officer shot in the episode, Doug Thomas, was treated at a hospital and released, police said in a statement.Ansari and the other officer responded just after 8 p.m. on Saturday to a report that a car connected to an earlier robbery at a barber shop was spotted on a street near downtown Savannah, Keturah Green, a spokeswoman for the Savannah Police Department, told reporters at the scene shortly after the shooting.Green said that as the officers approached the suspicious vehicle, shots rang out.The officers were not aware that Fuller was in the vehicle, according to the GBI. When they approached, Fuller exited the car and “immediately began firing,” striking Ansari and Thomas.Fuller then fled the scene on foot to the backyard of a nearby home, authorities said. When responding officers found him, he emerged from a shed and pointed a handgun at the officers, prompting one officer to fire his weapon, authorities said.Fuller was struck and later died at a local hospital.In keeping with the protocol for police-involved shootings, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations is leading the probe.“Please keep our officers and their families in your thoughts and prayers at this time,” the Savannah Police Department said in a statement.Ansari had served in the U.S. Army for more than 20 years before joining the police department, officials said.Ansari is the 18th U.S. law enforcement officer shot to death in the line of duty this year, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page. Three officers have been shot to death this month.Ansari’s death comes less than a week after Officer Robert McKeithen was killed in an ambush shooting outside the Biloxi Police Department headquarters in Mississippi. Thousands of law enforcement officers from around the country are expected to attend McKeithen’s funeral on Monday in Biloxi.Darian Atkinson, 19, was arrested in McKeithen’s slaying and charged with capital murder.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
