TairaInitially they were looking in many types of neighborhood, but after several discussions with us, they focused on a new development surrounded by mountains. Deer could still be spotted walking on the streets. They found a site large enough to build a ranch-style house, and where they could imagine looking up and seeing mountains.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaThe design consists of a maze-like set of concrete walls covered with a roof to create the interior space. The purpose of the walls is to block visibility, and their structural requirements were the same both inside and outside, but outside rain falls and wind blows. Inside, rain and wind are blocked by the roof and exterior walls.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Katsuya. TairaTypically when such walls extend inside, they are called partitions, but by creating the visual impression of an exterior wall that has come inside the house, we hoped to blur the boundaries between inside and outside. Inside, we wanted to create the feeling of being within a concrete maze. In terms of circulation routes, a number of small spaces are accessed via a living-dining area facing the garden.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaThese small rooms—including the master bedroom, children’s room, and home office—are partitioned by concrete walls, but the walls only reach head-high, with glass partitions above that, and the exposed roof beams span the various rooms. This prevents an enclosed or confined atmosphere, and makes the small rooms feel as if they are part of a larger whole. Save this picture!© Katsuya.

first_img The Institute of Fundraising has opened its annual search for fundraisers who should be recognised for their contribution to fundraising by being awarded Fellowship of the Institute.Fellows are those who have “a track record of commitment to the Institute and the fundraising profession”. In particular, they are recognised for “their substantial contribution to fundraising above and beyond their day job”. Nominees must be members of the Institute of Fundraising.Duties of a FellowAs individuals, Fellows are expected to offer advice, guidance and support to trustees, staff and Institute of Fundraising members.Valerie Morton, an IoF Fellow explained:“I was so proud, as a lifelong fundraiser, when I heard that I had been appointed a Fellow of the Institute of Fundraising. On a personal level it was very touching to be recognised by my peers for my contribution and commitment to the sector. Being a Fellow is an opportunity to demonstrate to new generations that fundraising is more than just a job or a career. It is about living and breathing values and principles and ultimately making a difference to society.”Shortly after this year’s nominations were opened, Mark Astarita, former Chair of the Institute of Fundraising, noted that women were still under-represented in the Institute’s Fellowship so he was taking action to try to help redress that.https://twitter.com/AstaritaMark/status/848091359370240000 How to nominateYou can download the nomination forms from the Institute of Fundraising.All nominations must be received at the Institute of Fundraising’s offices by midday on Friday 21 April 2017.They are then considered by the Nominations Committee at their meeting in early May, who will then make their recommendations to the Board of Trustees.Successful Fellows will be announced at the Institute’s AGM in London on 3 July 2017.

first_img This Christmas will pose significant challenges for charities with a quarter expecting donation income to be more than 25% lower than last year.According to the latest Covid Charity Tracker Survey, run by Pro Bono Economics in partnership with Charity Finance Group and Chartered Institute of Fundraising, the Christmas period is either very or quite significant to total annual income for 44% of charities.Overall, a quarter said they expected donation income to be more than 25% lower than it was last year, with just over a fifth expecting it to be up to 25% less. However, this is worse among smaller charities, with two-in-five expecting their donation income this Christmas to be more than a quarter lower than in 2019, while 78% of those charities for whom Christmas fundraising forms a significant part of their annual income expect to suffer a drop.Service delivery will also continue to be affected, with around a fifth (19%) of charities believing they will be unable to deliver their services adequately over the Christmas period, and just under 90% expecting Covid-19 to impact their ability to deliver services over next year.More job losses are also on the cards with nearly a quarter (23%) expecting to make staff redundant when the Job Retention Scheme ends at the end of this month. Just 1 in 10 plan to use the government’s replacement Job Support Scheme, which allows employees to work part time, and pay for hours not worked to be split between the employer, the government, and the employee, through a wage reduction.The survey also asked about take up of the government’s temporary loan schemes: the Bounce Back Loan Scheme, the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) and the Future Fund. However, it found that only 7% of charities had used one of these schemes, with 3% planning to apply. Among smaller charities, only 1% have applied. In comparison Bank of England data shows that 19% of businesses are using or planning to use the CBILS or CLBILS.Only 7% of charities said they did not require any additional support to help them deliver their objectives. The majority (68%) expressed a need for additional financial resources, with smaller charities slightly more likely to say this than larger ones.Other barriers to achieving objectives include uncertainty over social distancing, with two fifths saying more certainty over future arrangements would help, and a fifth seeking more clarity over current arrangements. More collaboration between charities could help however, with a quarter (26%) of respondents saying more opportunities here would help them deliver on their objectives.The Covid Charity Tracker Survey was live between 12-18 October and received 291 responses.

first_imgTwo weeks after the grand pomp of President Trump’s visit, Saudi Arabia announced the complete blockade of small neighboring state Qatar on June 5. The blockade is an act of war.Emboldened by Trump’s visit, Saudi Arabia quickly gathered eight other countries to participate in the blockade. The action includes cutting all food shipment and all land, sea and air travel; severing all diplomatic relations; freezing Qatari bank accounts; and expelling all Qatari citizens, within 48 hours, from nine countries in the region.These are devastating acts, as the Doha International Airport in Qatar is a transit point for 37 million people a year. Qatar imports almost all its food and basic supplies, with 600 to 800 trucks a day rolling into Qatar from Saudi Arabia.Source of terror: U.S. warsHardly any political commentator from left to right, or any media from major corporate to alternative, believes Saudi Arabia’s official reason for the blockade of Qatar.The pretext is that Saudi Arabia is carrying out President Trump’s demand to end the funding of terrorists in the region. Trump has projected the notion of a grand Arab-NATO military alliance supposedly to fight the Islamic State group and Iran. Trump immediately took credit, in a tweet, for the Saudi action against Qatar.Of course, U.S. imperialism’s wars in the region are the greatest act of terror there. Millions of people have been dislocated as refugees. Whole countries lie in ruin due to U.S. bombs. Sectarian militias and mercenary armies, along with tens of thousands of U.S. troops, have wreaked havoc.Saudi Arabia assisted these U.S. wars by funding, arming and training fanatical religious groups since the 1980s war in Afghanistan.Qatar is also guilty of funding groups and sending troops to aid in the destruction of Libya and continually funding forces in the war against Syria. At the time of the Saudi decision, Qatar was aiding Saudi Arabia’s war against a popular people’s movement in Yemen, the poorest country in the Gulf region.Both the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the State of Qatar are repressive absolute monarchies. Almost all the vast oil and gas wealth in each country is owned by one family or extended clan,  the House of Saud and the Al Thani family in Qatar. Unions and political parties are banned in both countries.Almost 90 percent of the 2.5 million population in Qatar and over one-third of the Saudi population of 31 million are migrant workers barred from citizenship. They have no rights to education, health care and all social services.These conditions are true for each of the six oil-rich Sunni Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf bound together in the Gulf Coordinating Council.Is the Saudi-Qatar conflict just a falling out among thieves and reactionary forces? Or is there a wider significance?Ordered to cut ties with IranBesides announcing the blockade of Qatar on June 5, Saudi Arabia issued a list of 10 demands that Qatar must immediately meet. These included cutting off all links with Iran; expelling resident members of the Palestinian militant group Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood; closing the Al-Jazeera news channel; and ending “interference” in the affairs of foreign countries.These add up to an attempt to put a brake on Iran’s growing political and economic influence in the region. This is what is motivating both the U.S. and Saudi Arabia to attack Qatar.Since the massive upheaval of the 1979 Iranian revolution broke with financial domination of U.S. banks and oil corporations, Iran’s very existence, despite decades of sanctions, remains a threat to the corrupt Gulf monarchies where all power and privilege is inherited.When suicide bombers attacked the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini’s mausoleum in Tehran on June 7, when at least 13 people died, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards blamed Saudi Arabia. The terror attack was also tied to Trump’s Saudi visit.While threats against Iran seem to be the primary motivation behind the joint U.S.-Saudi attack on Qatar, there are other immediate financial motivations for this move.Gas, oil and currency competitionQatar has become, in 25 years, the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas. The country now has 30 LNG terminals, with six more under construction.Qatar has diplomatic relations with Iran, not because the Qatari monarchy is forward thinking, but because Qatar shares with Iran the gas field that has made the Al Thani family fabulously wealthy. The South Pars/North Dome Field is offshore from Qatar and Iran in the Persian Gulf, so the two countries share exploration rights.It is impossible for Qatar to cut off all relations with Iran and survive. The Saudis understand this all too well.Qatar has attempted with its new wealth to chart a more independent foreign policy. It is often a go-between and negotiator in the region. It is a host to Arab forces connected to Hamas in Palestine and to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.Qatar is also the first country in the region to open a clearinghouse that allows gas and oil to be traded in yuan, the Chinese currency. This financial hub immediately undercuts the position of the dollar and puts banks in Doha, the capital of Qatar, ahead of other Gulf financial centers.Meanwhile, the Saudis are desperately concerned with chronically low oil prices. They are spending billions in a losing war in neighboring Yemen, a war that seeps back into Saudi Arabia.The second largest exporter of LNG gas is the U.S., so U.S. companies would benefit from a blockade of Qatar.So the immediate economic beneficiaries of a shutdown in Qatar are U.S. and Saudi Arabian oil and financial interests.Trump, the big corporations and the absolute monarchs of the oil-rich Gulf States are products of capitalism in its most vicious, competitive, cutthroat form. They are predators, always on the search for hostile takeovers and mergers. Seizures of assets are the order of the day. Glut and overproduction as well as loss of profit are their greatest fears. War is always on the table.Dislocation across region, in NATOThe Trump-Saudi scheme to force Qatar to capitulate to their demands or face an internal coup may not succeed so easily. It is instead fracturing alliances in a highly unstable and volatile region, where no U.S. war has succeeded as yet and U.S. domination is already waning.So far the Saudi action has not only split the six-nation Gulf Coordinating Council. Given German and Turkish opposition to the Saudi move, it also seems to have split NATO, the U.S.-dominated military alliance.From the GCC, Saudi Arabia has pulled in Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates behind its anti-Qatar moves. Other countries dependent on Saudi Arabia dutifully signed on to the blockade, including Mauritius, Mauritania, the Maldives, the Saudi-backed government of Yemen and Libya’s eastern-based government. But Kuwait and Oman have resisted participation.Of NATO members, Germany’s Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel blasted the Trump-Saudi policy as “completely wrong, and it is certainly not Germany’s policy.” He warned it could “lead to war.” (Reuters, June 7) The Turkish Parliament has approved a plan to deploy troops to Qatar and to provide immediate food and water.Iran immediately sent aircraft and ships with hundreds of tons of food to Qatar. Iran, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey opened their airspace to Qatari flights now blocked from flying over Saudi Arabia and Egypt.The U.S. is well situated militarily to enforce demands on Qatar, as the country hosts the biggest concentration of U.S. military personnel in the Middle East at the Al Udeid Air Base. With 11,000 U.S. troops stationed there, the base is the center of U.S. command and control of air power over Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and 17 other countries.But contradictions in this situation were on full display in two June 9 press briefings in Washington. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil, knows better than Trump what’s at stake in the long term. He urged de-escalation and negotiation. Ninety minutes later, Trump took the opposite view, again applauding Saudi Arabia.President Trump’s visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia two weeks before the blockade resulted in a $110 billion sale of weapons to ramp up military threats against Iran, although this monstrous weapons sale is facing fierce congressional opposition.It is when old alliances fracture — and glut and overproduction prevail — that the danger of war moves to red alert.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Commissioner of Police of Mumbai Abhishek Trimukh against Republic TV’s Editor in Chief Arnab Goswami, his wife Samyabrata Ray Goswami and ARG Outlier Media Pvt. Ltd.The complaint was filed under Section 199(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure against some statements made by Arnab in respect of the role of the Mumbai Police in the investigation into the death of one Sushant Singh Rajput. “Section 199(2) of the Cr. P. C. requires that the complaint has to be in writing and has to be made by the public prosecutor. This, in other words, means that no other person, be that even the person against whom the offence is alleged to have been committed, can make such a complaint.”, the judge Uday M. Padwad observed.The court observed that combined reading of Sub ­Section­2 and Sub­ Section 6 of Section 199 of the Cr. P. C. makes it clear that the complainant has essentially to be the public prosecutor only. It noted that the complaint in the end is signed by the public prosecutor for Greater Mumbai.”But mere signing a complaint would not necessarily make its signatory the complainant. As observed earlier, the public prosecutor has to be the complainant. In the present complaint, the complainant is not the public prosecutor. He merely has filed the complaint of Shri. Trimukhe, exactly similar to what the prosecutors do while filing Appeals, Revisions and other proceedings on behalf of the State/Prosecution. The public prosecutor thus is nothing more than a medium to file this complaint. This certainly is not in compliance with what the Section 199(2) of the Cr. P. C. mandates. The sanction to make complaint is also given to the public prosecutor and not to Shri. Trimukhe. Therefore, the present complaint ought to have been made by the public prosecutor alone, which is not the case here. The present complaint, in these circumstances, has but to be treated as the one made by Shri. Trimukhe and not the public prosecutor, although filed by the latter. Consequently, such filing of the complaint by the public prosecutor cannot be equated with making of a  complaint by him.”, the court said.Referring to Section­237 (1) of the Cr. P. C., the court observed that status of the person against whom the offence is alleged to have been committed would be that of a witness only.”This undoubtedly means that status of the person against whom the offence is alleged to have been committed would be that of a witness only. He can never become a complainant. Since he cannot become the complainant, it is made mandatory to examine him as a witness, unless directed otherwise. In the present case, the complainant and the person against whom the offence is alleged to have been committed are one and the same. This again is not in conformity with the mandatory requirement of Section 199(2) of the Cr. P. C. 13. It is not that the aggrieved public servant or the person against whom the said offence is alleged to have been committed has no forum to take his grievances to. He has the remedy to make a complaint before the competent Magistrate. His filing the complaint even through the public prosecutor however, would not confer any jurisdiction on this Court to take cognizance of the alleged offence.”, the judge said while dismissing the complaint.Click here to Read/Download OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgDebris‐covered glaciers are ubiquitous in the Himalaya, and supraglacial debris significantly alters how glaciers respond to climate forcing. Estimating debris thickness at the glacier scale, however, remains a challenge. This study inverts a subdebris melt model to estimate debris thickness for three glaciers in the Everest region from digital elevation model difference‐derived elevation change. Flux divergences are estimated from ice thickness and surface velocity data. Monte Carlo simulations are used to incorporate the uncertainties associated with debris properties, flux divergence, and elevation change. On Ngozumpa Glacier, surface lowering data from 2010 to 2012 and 2012 to 2014 are used to calibrate and validate the method, respectively. The debris thickness estimates are consistent with existing in situ measurements. The method performs well over both actively flowing and stagnant parts of the glacier and is able to accurately estimate thicker debris (>0.5 m). Uncertainties associated with the thermal conductivity and elevation change contribute the most to uncertainties of the debris thickness estimates. The surface lowering associated with ice cliffs and supraglacial ponds was found to significantly reduce debris thickness, especially for thicker debris. The method is also applied to Khumbu and Imja‐Lhotse Shar Glaciers to highlight its potential for regional application.last_img read more

It currently has 151 properties still awaiting a buyer and 70 agents featured on its website.Watch the video: steve carroll Purplebricks Rightmove Purplebricks Australia REA Group September 25, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
