Sulgrave Road apartments 008 & 009 are two new homes, located in Shepherds Bush, London, formed by extending and re-organising two Victorian Houses. The building from second floor to roof level was stripped back to its original brick skeleton to allow the re- configuration and additions to the rear elevation with a new level added at third floor. Apartment 009 creates a new home from the letiover void space in Victorian pitched roofs. Apartment 008 forms a new home by reorganising a lateral space across two Victorian houses.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasApartment 008 is considered as a collection of rooms, with each room being defined by bespoke joinery. Douglas Fir and white washed Ash form free-standing joinery, used as a spatial device to separate programmes and located to create multiple spaces within lateral rooms. Rooms retain traces of their Victorian proportion, this is then contrasted with a new proportion which is formed by overlapping adjoining spaces.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanDouglas Fir ply seamlessly lines the floor and walls of the living room. Forming a material container, allowing furniture to contrast against the texture of the floor and wall. Bedrooms and bathrooms are separated by deep joinery units that have been conceived as small buildings. Organised to include storage, a desk, lighting and a secret door providing access to a bathroom. The joinery is a spatial device, an interface that both connects and separates programmes.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasApartment 009 is formed across two existing roofs, creating a new home from the unused voids of existing Victorian houses. The project is an example of how the city can provide more housing on existing land with limited construction.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasLarge sliding doors between rooms allow spaces to be cellular or open plan, creating a fluid relationship between uses. A south facing external terrace is connected to the internal living spaces by sliding glazed doors. This configuration allows a continuous connection between terrace, living, dining and kitchen. Four spaces that join and overlap – allowing an interaction between interior and exterior. The roof extension is formed in a lightweight timber construction, faced in black oiled cedar, a contrast to the texture and form of adjoining roofs. The black cedar both absorbs the south sun and contrasts against the sprayed white terrace enclosure.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe roof garden is conceived as an external room. A perforated white steel wall lines the boundaries of the space, providing a spatial enclosure while maintaining a visual connection with the surrounding gardens below. The white steel wall folds to form a continuous seat. Under-lit, the perforated seat glows at night creating a siluetee against residents as they move across the space.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasBedrooms are organised on the north side. Wide spaces, top lit and characterised by washed ply joinery. These joinery elements wrap around the bedroom, a single form providing storage, seating and headboard in one material.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe section is articulated to bring top light into each area of the plan, deep reveals direct daylight over the entrance, kitchen and living room seating. Alternating sunlight and daylight is brought in through a range of building openings, the change in scale and location animate internal spaces, creating rooms that are full of shadow and daylight. Apartments 008 & 009 are the latest in a collection of spaces in London that Teatum + Teatum design, produce and make available to rent.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Client:This is the latest project that has been produced by Teatum+Teatum. Under this structure we design and produce spaces and make them available to rent. We act as the client, architect and manage the production of space. This structure allows us to develop a spatial strategy, manage the production process and curate the space while being rented. Each project is developed with a specific spatial concept that responds to the context, existing building and a commitment to developing new narratives for urban living.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Brief:To produce homes that are spatially organised to create social and material experiences. Engage with the lives of people that move through the city for short periods and invest in an architecture that can be made available to a wide audience.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanThe way people live and work in London is changing rapidly. Globally more people move through urban centres for short periods, use the city flexibly, don’t require (or have the capacity for) ownership of property and seek to have varied living experiences as opposed to being fixed in one place. Our spaces are a response to this condition. Released from ownership, the spaces offer the opportunity for a range of living experiences in the city.Save this picture!© Lyndon DouglasThe Future:Teatum+Teatum are interested in the social opportunity of space. Current projects being developed will offer a mix of programmes with an emphasis on communal and shared spaces containing some of the programmes that are normally private. The intention is to create homes that offer spatial interaction between residents through cooking, gardening and making, allowing the opportunity for a layered programme, offering a vibrant set of living experiences.Project gallerySee allShow lessEstúdios Capelinha / Arquitetos AssociadosSelected ProjectsInfographic: ArchDaily Building of the Year Awards 2015InfographicsProject locationAddress:Sulgrave Drive Northwest, Wilson, NC 27896, United StatesLocation to be used only as a reference.

Losing streak comes to a halt with victory over Iowa State

Photo by Heesoo YangTCU football avoided their second three-game losing streak under head coach Gary Patterson with a hard-fought 17-14 victory over Iowa State making TCU’s record 3-2 overall and 1-1 in conference.“We knew these guys are hard to score on, and I told [my team] we had to play a fourth quarter ball game where whoever made less mistakes and made plays was who was going to win,” Patterson said.Both teams were sloppy out of the gates. TCU recorded 26 yards of offense on their first two drives, and the first quarter ended without any points on the board. The scoreless tie after the first quarter was the first the Horned Frogs had been a part of since 2009’s contest against SMU.“The scheme they run on defense is physical, and it surrounds people, which makes it hard to beat them,” said Patterson.The Horned Frogs put together their longest drive of the night early in the second quarter. Starting on their own 10-yard line, TCU was able to string together a few first downs courtesy of a couple Shawn Robinson passes to wide receiver Jalen Reagor and running back Sewo Olonilua, as well as a 12-yard run by running back Darius Anderson. The drive ended with a Robinson fumble on Iowa State’s 22-yard line.Receiver Jalen Reagor was one of the teams most consistent weapons against the Cyclones. Photo by Heesoo YangISU didn’t take long to capitalize on the takeaway, finding the end zone on four plays, concluding their scoring drive on a play-action pass from quarterback Zeb Noland to tight end Charlie Kolar for a three-yard strike.On the next drive, Robinson was a perfect five-for-five with 57 yards passing, including the 10-yard screen pass touchdown to first-year wide receiver Taye Barber, which knotted the game at seven with 7:35 to go before halftime.It took just 49 seconds in the third quarter for the Horned Frogs to double their lead. Safety Innis Gaines came blitzing and jumped on Noland, forcing a fumble, and TCU defensive end Ben Banogu scooped up the football for a 47-yard scoop-and-score.“Innis made one of those Innis Gaines plays,” Banogu said. “We practice the scoop-and-score drill every week in practice, so I saw the ball on the ground, picked it up and got into the end zone. Anything I can do to help the team win or give us an extra boost, I’m all for it.”Ben Banogu scored on a fumble recovery, the Horned Frogs first takeover in three games. Photo by Heesoo YangWhat appeared to be another promising drive for the Frogs ended at the ISU eight-yard line. Following a completion on a Robinson rollout, tight end Artayvious Lynn attempted to hurdle the Cyclone defense but collided with ISU defensive back D’Andre Payne and fumbled for Iowa State’s second takeaway of the night.“We turned the ball over when it should’ve been a two-score game,” Patterson said.Facing a third and 25 on their own 43-yard line, Banogu appeared to have Noland wrapped up for a sack, but the Cyclone QB escaped and tip-toed his way down the left sideline for a 28-yard gain and a first down.“You can make the play nine out of ten times, I missed that one and I feel like that play could’ve changed the whole outcome of the game in a faster pace,” Banogu said.Five plays later, Cyclone running back David Montgomery plunged into the end zone from a yard out on third down to even the game at 14 with 7:51 left to play.The Horned Frogs made quick work following the touchdown, advancing to the ISU 43 in five plays, but facing a third and five, Robinson unloaded toward wide receiver Derius Davis who was in triple coverage just outside of the end zone. The football landed in Cyclone defensive back Braxton Lewis’ hands for an interception, Robinson’s fifth interception and eighth turnover of the season.Shawn Robinson continued his turnover trend Saturday night. Photo by Heesoo YangThe Horned Frogs have turned over the football ten times in the last three games against Ohio State, Texas and Iowa State while forcing just one takeaway: Banogu’s 47-yard scoop-and-score against the Cyclones.With 3:49 left to play, the TCU offense reached the Cyclone 11-yard line following a 19-yard completion to Reagor over the middle, but that would be Robinson’s final pass of the night as he suffered an injury on the following play after taking a hit on a read-option keeper. Three plays later, TCU regained the lead for good on a 28-yard Jonathan Song field goal with 37 seconds to go.Up NextThe Horned Frogs have their bye week upcoming, and it couldn’t come at a better time with Robinson on the mend, dealing a nagging shoulder injury.It could be Michael Collins’ time should Robinson not be ready to go in a couple weeks against Texas Tech. His teammates voiced confidence in the Penn transfer being up to keep the offense moving.“I don’t really think we have a backup quarterback because both of those guys are guys that can start and do well for us,” TCU linebacker Ty Summers said. “Things that impressed me about [Mike] is he’s strong, works really hard in the weight room, and he can move around well on the field. He has a strong arm, one of the strongest I’ve seen outside of Trevone Boykin.” TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee ReddIt Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

Nicholas Street revamp on agenda

first_imgEmail WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Previous articleFound guilty of thefts at fishmongersNext articleNegative portrayal of city condemned admin Advertisement Linkedin Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Moves are also afoot to boost trade by transporting passengers from ships that dock at Foynes Harbour to the city.Shannon Development’s chief executive, Eoghan Prendergast, confirmed that, in co-operation with council, it is driving forward a major revamp of King John’s Castle.“The castle’s performance has slipped, but we have an application in for funding to develop it and bring in tourism – we hope to have 100,000 visitors annually.“The project we are going after will be the linchpin for further development of Nicholas Street, as well as a major development for Castle Lane”.Reminding a meeting this week that in 1985, the council demolished 26 houses inside King John’s Castle, Cllr Kevin Kiely said that people had been told then that the castle and Nicholas Street area would become Limerick’s Temple Bar“With 75% of Nicholas Street derelict, it needs a major investment. When we closed the street to traffic it was to develop tourism, but I believe that the reason it did not succeed was competition between Bunratty Castle and King John’s – we should have a separate management.“Speculators got buildings on the street for half nothing but we must now develop the street and we need to consult with the businesses and let them know of our plans”.Meanwhile, Mr Prendergast revealed they were working with the Shannon Foynes Port Company to get people off the ships that berth there, to visit Limerick city, and also get visitors from Cork Harbour to Limerick – in Belfast, they bring in 100,000 visitors annually from cruisers.“The Irish naval vessel, the LE Eithne, has told us they love coming to Limerick because the port is in the middle of the city – Cllr Jim Long is right in his suggestion that ships could sail into and berth in Limerick Docks”.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna heard a bunch of petitions on Tuesday through video conference. Among them was an email application filed by Dr Zeenath, Professor and HOD of Department of Pathology in Employees’ State Insurance Hospital, Kalaburagi. She stated that the hospital staff is not even provided with masks. In fact, she pointed out that some of the staff members were present in the room in the said ESI hospital where COVID-19 positive patient had visited before he was tested positive Another application was made by staff members such as ASHA, ANM, Health workers working in Bidar District check-post pointing out that they have not been provided masks, hand sanitizers, hand gloves and PPE kits. The bench said “While the State has given figures of available stock of N-95 Masks, Triple Layer Masks, Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Kits and Sanitizer bottles, the State has not disclosed what is the existing requirement of these items in the State. The State must disclose before the court whether it has ascertained as a measure of preparedness, the total requirement of masks of various categories and PPE kits and what is the action plan of the State to procure the equipment. The State will have to clarify whether PPE kits can be made available at cost to private hospitals and private clinics. The State must make a statement whether masks, PPE kits and sanitizers have been made available to all the public hospitals.” The court also called for district-wise breakup of the cases which are tested positive for COVID-19. Details of the location of laboratories which are authorized to test and diagnose people for COVID-19. Efforts made to make available more laboratories. District-wise break up of Isolation beds and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds with 740 ventilators. The State must also disclose whether all the existing ventilators are functioning and whether adequate technical personnel are available to operate the ventilators. The State must also disclose whether any study is made to ascertain how many ventilators are needed in the State and whether any effort is made to procure additional ventilators and to make arrangements for additional isolation beds. The court directed Secretaries of the respective District Legal Services Authorities to visit some of the Public Health Centers (PHCs) on random basis in their respective jurisdictions and submit a report on the functioning of the PHCs. The Karnataka State Legal Aid Services Authority, informed the court about disturbing features of the status of the migrant workers in the city of Bengaluru. It was told that the Secretary, the Chairman of the District Legal Services Authority and Member Secretary, visited some parts of Bengaluru city. They found that more than 2000 persons had assembled in and around Majestic Railway Station and Balepet Circle. They were not maintaining social distancing. They are not being provided with any shelter and the facility of toilets is not made available to them and they are not getting food regularly. To which the court said “The issue of migrant workers on the streets in the city of Bengaluru needs to be addressed immediately. As nearly 1/3rd of the total number of cases which are tested positive in the State are from the Bengaluru Urban District, if proper facilities are not extended to migrants in the city of Bengaluru, the situation will aggravate.” Further, it directed BBMP to take immediate steps to set up shelters for migrant workers and to ensure that all facilities are made available to them. Merely setting up of shelters for the migrants will not suffice. BBMP with the help of Government Officers will have to locate migrants who are on the streets in different parts of the city and ensure that by setting up an adequate number of shelters, all of them are immediately accommodated in the shelters. The bench was also informed about a report appeared in Times of India, where it was reported that the State Government has given permission to hold Bengaluru Karaga Festival on Wednesday night (08th April, 2020) and there will be a large congregation of people to celebrate the festival. The State government said that no such permission has been granted by the State Government or by Police Commissioner of City of Bengaluru and that the report in the newspaper is incorrect. The bench reminded the government about the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, order dated March 24, declaring of the 21-day lockdown, which also imposes a complete ban of all categories of religious congregations and other gatherings, without any exception. The Bench said “It is not out of place to mention here that it is an established fact that mass congregations lead to spread of Coronavirus. It is for these reasons we have taken a serious cognizance of the report published in the Times of India newspaper today. We direct the State Government to scrupulously implement and enforce the guidelines contained in Clauses (9) and (10). The State Government shall show zero tolerance to the breach of the said two guidelines and the law enforcing machinery must come down with heavy hands in cases where there is a violation.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

To this end, it has been prayed that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) be directed to withdraw its instructions to Indian Embassies and High Commissions for demanding a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Government to bring back mortal remains of Indian expatriates who died due to an accident or non-COVID-19 ailment. The plea filed by the NGO Pravasi Legal Cell raises concerns on how this recent, ‘unusual practice’ makes the repatriation process tedious despite the Government having clarified that mortal remains of Indians who died abroad due to non-COVID-19 causes could be brought back. “It is pertinent to mention that the mortal remains of the Indian citizens whose death occurred abroad due to reasons other than COVID19 infection where brought into India without any problem through Cargo planes till 21.04.2020…To repatriate the mortal remains of the Indian expatriates died outside India, a ‘clearance certificate’ from the Indian Embassy/High Commission in the concerned country is required to process the application for the same. But recently, as an unusual practice, the Embassies are insisting on production of a no-objection certificate from the Ministry of Home Affairs, New Delhi even for those who died of accidents or Non-COVID-19 ailments over and above the existing rules to repatriate.” Drawn up by Advocate Jose Abraham, the plea further adds that Airlines have been instructed that immigration clearance for mortal remains has been suspended, and are ‘forced’ to obtain separate permission from the MHA to carry such mortal remains. “This is not only is a cumbersome process but would also lead to hesitation from the Airlines to transport mortal remains in the near future”, urges the petition. This insistence on the production of an NOC is a cumbersome process which has resulted in corpses of Indian expatriates lying abandoned at airports, especially in Gulf countries like Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, UAE and Saudi Arabia, claims the petitioner. “It is also pertinent to mention that even the World Health Organization (WHO) time and again has categorically clarified that a belief that copses pose a major healthcare risk is inaccurate.” Informing that there was no prior notification or direction from MHA based on which Indian Embassies or Consulates are ‘denting permission for repatriation’, the petitioner submits that the sudden move has come as a jolt to the NRI fraternity. In this light, it is prayed that Indian embassies abroad be directed to issue clearances to bring back mortal remains of those who died due to non-COVID-19 causes without seeking individual approvals from the MHA. It has additionally been sought that cargo planes be allowed to carry such mortal remains back to India without requiring individual permission from MHA.

Since 1950, starting from cases like Romesh Thapar (1950 SCR 594), the Supreme Court has held that freedom of speech and expression guaranteed to all citizens by Article 19 (1) (a) of Constitution of India includes freedom of the press. The liberty of the press stands on no higher footing than the freedom of speech and expression of a citizen and that no privilege attaches to the press as such or as distinct from the freedom of the citizens. The Supreme Court while hearing a writ petition concerning grievances of migrant labourers vide order dated 31 March 2020 observed about the spread of the fake news that “We expect the Media (print, electronic or social) to maintain a strong sense of responsibility and ensure that unverified news capable of causing panic is not disseminated. A daily bulletin by the Government of India through all media avenues including social media and forums to clear the doubts of people would be made active within a period of 24 hours ……” Since the spread of Covid-19 and imposition of lockdown; circulation of fake news and misleading messages have increased, it has become unbearable to watch manipulative news and messages, as said ‘we are not just fighting pandemic; we are fighting an infodemic’. The right to freedom of speech comes with responsibilities and self imposed restrictions. Any restriction on the free speech affects the very essence of democracy. Unfortunately, forgetting the representative role and being the voice of the people, the news/posts/statements are manipulated and sensationalized with an element of falsity, to maximize viewership and profit. The wrong, biased and unfair news reporting diverts the attention of the people from important issues. In words of Nani Palkhivala, ‘Journalism is not a business; it is a profession and professional should be ready to accept standards’. History is full of eminent journalists and they are real thread to connect with society and shaping the media. Aino Suhola, Seppo Turunen and Markku Varis in textbook named “Principles of Journalistic Work”, has well described journalist as “You are a reporter, not a star. You are a servant of the people, not a ruler. You are a seeker of knowledge, not its guardian. You know people, but you are not everyone’s friend. You are there, but not seen – you are a shadow. You are present, but you are not the object of the piece of news, nor the one something is happening to. You are not the protagonist of the news article. You do a profession which is mundane work. You are a professional, according to whose information the majority of us construct our world view.” In today’s technologically advanced world, many of us are more active than any well-trained journalist by having easy access to social media at our fingertips. Are we, behaving responsibly while acting as ‘citizen journalists’ ? Social media is a great tool available to all of us to contribute constructively and need to be used with greater responsibility as true voice of people. Citizen must be extra cautious to verify the information received before uploading, posting or forwarding it. The Supreme Court, in Union of India v. Assn. for Democratic Reforms (2002) 5 SCC 294 has observed: (SCC p. 317, para 38) “[O]ne-sided information, disinformation, misinformation and non-information, all equally create an uninformed citizenry which makes democracy a farce. … Freedom of speech and expression includes right to impart and receive information which includes freedom to hold opinions.” In Express Newspapers (Bombay) (P) Ltd. v. Union of India, the court held :”Freedom of press is the heart of social and political intercourse. The press has now assumed the role of the public educator making formal and non-formal education possible in a large scale, particularly in the developing world, where television and other kinds of modern communication are not still available for all sections of society. The purpose of the press is to advance the public interest by publishing facts and opinions without which a democratic electorate cannot make responsible judgments. Newspapers are purveyors of news and views having a bearing on public administration very often carry material which would not be palatable to governments and other authorities.” Apart from constitutional restrictions under Article 19(2) of the Constitution, such as (i) The sovereignty and integrity of India; (ii) The security of the State; (iii) Friendly relations with foreign States; (iv) Public order; (v) Decency or morality; (vi) In relation to contempt of court; (vii) Defamation or/ and; (viii) Incitement to an offence, on freedom of speech and expression, there are other laws which also limit press freedom and citizen’s right to information and freedom of speech and expression including: Several provisions of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 under which offences can be registered.The Press and Registration of Books Act, 1867 (oldest surviving Act) a fundamental law governing the publication of newspapers and printing presses. The Indian telegraph Act, 1985 which empowers the state to intercept, detain, or not to transmit any message, in the interest of public safety, public order, the sovereignty & integrity, and security of the state. Indian Post Office Act, 1898 which gives the state or its representatives the right to intercept, detain or not to send any indecent or obscene publications or representations. The Police incitement to Disaffection Act, 1922, which provides for a penalty for spreading disaffection among the police and for related offences. The Official Secrets Act, 1923, which prohibits obtaining, collecting, recording or publishing of secret government documents or photographs or sketches or models, the Security and Public Safety Acts of the various States which deal with penalties for inciting commission of ‘subversive’ acts. The Drugs and Magic Remedies Objectionable Advertisements Act, 1954, which, in the interests of public health, bans advertisements of magic cures of sexual ailments and the like. The Young Persons Harmful Publications Act, 1956 disallows publication and circulation of any literature likely to encourage anti-social tendencies among children. The Copyright Act, 1957, protects the original works of writers, artists, musicians, dramatist, film and video producers and other creative persons from being pirated. Section 11 of the Customs Act, 1962 which gives Government the power to ban import and export of goods in the interests of security, public order, and decency and morality. The Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 relates to the wilful disobedience of judicial orders and the like, and to any publication which interferes with or undermines the administration of justice. The Press Council of India was established under Press Council Act, 1978 for preserving the freedom of the press and of maintaining and improving the standards of newspapers and news agencies in India. The Cable Television Networks Regulation Act, 1994, aimed to ensure the growing cable TV industry was regulated with a program code and an advertising code that gave the government the power to stop cable transmissions. The Information Technology Act, 2000, Section 67 provides punishment for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form (amended in 2008) and Section 66 A provides punishment for sending offensive messages through communication service etc. (introduced in 2008) In a democratic society, Media to be regulated by ethics and self regulations. Many professional bodies have formulated voluntary codes of conduct for self-regulation. Following self-regulatory bodies are in existence in India: All India Newspaper Editor’s Conference (“AINEC”), the code of ethics are applicable to the members of that body. The Office of the Registrar of Newspapers for India established in 1956 (“RNI”), provides the duties and functions of the RNI both statutory as well as some non-statutory functions. Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) founded in 1948 is a not-for-profit, voluntary organisation consisting of publishers, advertisers and advertising agencies as members. ABC’s primary objective is to arrive at and certify authentic circulation figures representing Net Paid Sales of member publications and disseminate the data for the use of space buyers. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, as well as TRAI, issues policy guidelines from time to time. The Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC), the grievance redressal mechanism created under the Indian Broadcasting Federation (IBF), can take if its guidelines are defied is refer the complaint to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry. The jurisdiction of the News Broadcasting Standards Authority (NBSA) is restricted only to members, which signifies that it is powerless when it comes to violation of content regulation by non-members of NBSA. Sadly the current self-regulation as state regulation mechanisms lack uniformity, predictability and enforceability. Along with free speech, every individual also have right to receive true and correct information and this right is mainly sourced to media. As per the world press freedom Index 2019, India’s freedom of press ranking has further gone down to 140th place this is mainly due to recent increase in censorship, attacks and deaths of the journalists, sudden bans and restrictions on media. In a diverse country like ours, criticism need to be objective and rational and the government should also be open to criticisms in the interest of democracy. In current scenario, there is need for legal and ethical checks and balances for free and constructive media. We also need to understand that there is no freedom to destroy freedom.Views Are Personal Only (Author is Advocate on Record in the Supreme Court of India) Next Storylast_img read more
