For this project of sixteen social housing units, the Atelier Gemaile RECHAK offers intuitive thresholds which address all levels of perception as well as the urban, intimate and landscape levels of the site. Exploration.Save this picture!© Milene ServelleThreshold The first threshold is the confrontation between a violent and noisy main road and a project which fulfils its urban function. The establishment of the construction and the dimensions of the two facades visible from the road maintain the link between a network of small houses and (closer to the town centre) buildings of up to five storeys. The variations of full and empty are thus reminiscent of the universe of a house and garden, all the while connecting the different urban scales of the site, from individual to collective dwelling. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleThe assembly of this construction is part of the transformation of this urban network. As such, in opposition to the current austerity of the street, the wooden façade invites you warmly to come home, the woven effect of the faille material evoking an interior space just for the inhabitants. This is an affirmation of both the urbanity and the contemporaneity of the project, while also suggesting a protected space for the inhabitants, away from the street. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleTransition: 16 housing units, 4 buildings, 1 entrance, 3 stairs The gradual increase in level is expressed by a semi-private AND common area of free movement which continues the route between street and home. It is only when you have stepped through the doorway (the only entrance of the building) that this bright open-air path – neither a passageway nor a corridor –suddenly opens up several possible routes and just as many destinations. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleIn fact, this is not a building of sixteen housing units but rather sixteen units nestled in four small groups, each different, and each with its own identity and amenities. Unlike a regimented and overpowering building, these units look less like a block of flats and more like a project which is in-between social housing and private lodgement. The wide passageways and the common areas invite movement, reinforcing the intimate notion of arriving home. It is also significant that all the passageways have natural light, further emphasizing the aspect of perception on the route between the street and the apartment. Save this picture!PlanInteriority At the centre of the block of buildings there is a further example of how space is handled. The project block plan reveals an urban profile of surprising diversity, ranging from five storeys to ground floor, from the street up to the back of the plot, and conversely. The units are all organized around a garden with a uniform layout while an awning located close to the vine of the adjoining plot opens towards a large landscape horizon. The inhabitants, with the urban hubbub at their back, have a near view of a calm and serene garden and far view of the wide landscape of the Montmorency valley. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleAlthough the density was of course imposed by the programme, the project composition lines allowed for the conception of a great variety of housing units – there are, for example, two duplexes, some apartments with terraces at garden level, etc. Although this was not a regulatory requirement, all the units can be accessed by mobility impaired persons, and the wide passageways provide easy access to these homes. These homes are all south-west facing with a view of the garden and, for most of them, of the wide landscape. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleThis specific interiority helps the inhabitant to feel that the place belongs to him or her. In effect, if the passageways invite one to “go somewhere”, this sense of home offers the feeling of “being somewhere”. This is possibly the best example of the architect’s intention. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleConnections The wood cladding illustrates perfectly both the multiplicity of the diverse elements of the project and its overall uniqueness. In effect, it appears like a continuous crease, its horizontality leading to the horizontality of the garden and of the terrace before elegantly covering the car-park ramp. It then becomes vertical on the façade and finally turns around on the roof and reappears on the street-facing façade. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleThis feature thus becomes the element which constitutes a space which reinforces the intimacy of the unit while also opening it up to the exterior. Its very path from the far landscape, to the garden, to the public space of the street symbolizes the reassuring attention and specialist expertise applied to all the aspects of this site and of this subtle project. Save this picture!© Milene ServelleProject gallerySee allShow lessCehegín Wine School / INMAT ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsWohnhaus Stolberggasse / Josef Weichenberger architects + PartnerSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Avenue Gabriel Péri, 92500 Rueil-Malmaison, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Joe Saxton on benefits to charities of the Internet

Joe Saxton, director of communications at the Royal National Institute for Deaf People, writes about the Internet in the 22 July issue of ThirdSector. “My life has changed dramatically over the last year. I have become a 50 e-mails a day man,” he says. Joe explains why the Internet is significant to charities. “The real benefit to charities is that many of these technologies allow them to compete on a more level playing field than before.”Joe Saxton, director of communications at the Royal National Institute for Deaf People, writes about the Internet in the 22 July issue of ThirdSector. “My life has changed dramatically over the last year. I have become a 50 e-mails a day man,” he says. Joe explains why the Internet is significant to charities. “The real benefit to charities is that many of these technologies allow them to compete on a more level playing field than before.”However, Saxton points out that the biggest hindrance to charities’ effective use of the Internet is the lack of technological staff. “The biggest problem for many charities is not spotting the technological opportunities but being able to attract and retain the staff to bring them to reality.” This is largely true, but it could be argued that it is not the technological skills that are lacking but the very ability to spot the technological opportunities. Using the Internet to fundraise, for example, requires little technical skill: instead it requires fundraising expertise and personal experience of using the Internet. Charities would do well to ensure they provide such access and experience to their staff.

There are certain rules and regulations, but nothing excessive, and member states have a duty under EU law to facilitate patients who apply, she added.“In order that everybody, including those lacking financial resources, can access this EU scheme I will be proposing to the Credit Union movement that they provide where necessary up front funding, with appropriate conditions, to ensure that all who wish can avail of this very welcome opportunity”, Independent MEP Marian Harkin concluded.

The matter was pending before a Special MP/MLA Court. Single Bench of Justice John Michael Cunha allowed the petition filed by KJ George, Former Minister of Urban Planning & Development and IPS officers Pronab Mohanty and Ashit Mohan Prasad, challenging the order of Summons passed by the Special Court on August 28. The Special Court had rejected the ‘B Summary’ report submitted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and had taken cognizance of the alleged offence, punishable under section 306 r/w section 34 of IPC. Justice Cunha, while quashing the order of the special court, observed: “The evidence collected by the investigating agency, even if accepted in its entirety, does not disclose mens rea or instigation or conspiracy by the petitioners making out the ingredients of the offence under section 306 r/w 34 of IPC. In the absence of any material to make out the ingredients of the above offence, there was absolutely no reason or justification for the Special Court to reject the well-founded report filed by CBI and to take cognizance of the alleged offence and issue summons to the petitioners.” Reliance was placed on the Supreme Court’s verdict in M/s. Pepsifoods Ltd. & Another v. Special Judicial Magistrate & Ors, (1998) 5 SCC 749, where it was held that the Magistrate has to carefully scrutinise the evidence brought on record and may even himself put questions to the complainant and his witnesses to elicit answers to find out the truthfulness of the allegations or otherwise and then examine if any offence is prima facie committed by all or any of the accused. In view thereof the Bench held, “Since the material on record does not prima-facie disclose commission of the offence by the petitioners, the action initiated against the petitioners/accused Nos.1 to 3 being wholly illegal, perverse and amounting to abuse of process of court deserves to be quashed.” Ganapathy had spoken about the harassment meted out to him by the then Home minister George and two IPS officers in an interview with a local TV channel at Madikeri, before taking the extreme step. Considering this aspect, the Court said, “Though in the lengthy interview, he has named a large number of cases dealt by him, a reading of the transcript shows that he was mentally disturbed and completely disoriented. He rambled from one incomplete idea to the next, jumping from one topic to another, as a result, final product appear to be incoherent, disjoined, meaningless and absurd and as such, this statement, in my view, could not have been made the basis to incriminate the accused.” The Court further held that in view of the overwhelming evidence, the observation of the Special Judge that there is no prima-facie case to show that the deceased was suffering from any mental depression is nothing but perverse and ignoring the obvious. The deceased was suffering from Neurotic disorder, loss of memory and depression. The Court observed that the CBI had collected 42 documents and had examined 108 witnesses to come to a conclusion that that there was no foul play in Gangapathy’s death and it was a clear case of suicide. As observed in the order, “The CBI recorded its further opinion that the deceased was depressed due to various family problems. He was taking treatment for depression and neuro related problems and there is no evidence to show that accused Nos.1 to 3 instigated, provoked or compelled him to commit suicide and accordingly filed a closure report under section 173 Cr.P.C.” How Case Came To Be Transferred to CBI. The father of the deceased M.K. Kushalappa lodged a report before Madikeri police and a case was registered as UDR No.9/2016. In the said complaint, he alleged that while the deceased was earlier working at Bengaluru, his wife and children were residing in Mangaluru; during that period, he was ignored by his wife; she was ill-treating him even after returning to Mangaluru. He further alleged that deceased was suffering from depression inspite of his promotion and posting at Mangaluru, he was not leading peaceful life and therefore, he committed suicide. Regarding the same incident, the son of the deceased filed a complaint before Kushalnagar police. The same was not registered in view of pendency of UDR No.9/2016. Aggrieved by non-registration of the complaint, the son filed a private complaint before a Magistrate Court. The Magistrate referred the complaint for investigation under section 156(3) Cr.P.C. and accordingly FIR in Cr.No.89/2016 was registered in Madikeri police station. DG and IGP, Karnataka entrusted the investigation to CID. In the mean-while, the father and one of the brothers of the deceased filed a petition before the High Court seeking direction to entrust the investigation to CBI. These petitions were dismissed. The appeals preferred against the order of the Single Judge were also dismissed by the High Court. The father and brother of the deceased carried the matter to Supreme Court contending that they apprehended foul play in the matter and that it could be a case of murder, even though the complainants earlier learnt it to be a suicide. The Supreme Court directed the investigation to be handed over to CBI.Case Details: Cause Title: Pronab Mohanty v. CBICase No: Crl.

Petrogenesis of a phonolite-trachyte succession at Mount Sidley, Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica

first_imgThe 1.5 Ma evolution of the Late Pliocene (5.7 to 4.2 Ma) Mt Sidley volcano, Marie Byrd Land, is examined using major and trace elements, Sr, Nd, O and Pb isotopic data. A large (5 km × 5 km) breached caldera exposes lavas and tephras, deep within Mt Sidley, and allows its magmatic evolution to be elucidated. Two alkaline rock series are distinguished: (a) a strongly silica-under-saturated basanite to phonolite series; (b) a more silica-saturated to -oversaturated alkali basalt to trachyte series. Rock compositions in both series fall within a narrow range of 77Sr/86Sri (0.7028–0.7032), 143Nd/144Ndi (0.51285–0.51290) and δ18O (5.0–6.0‰), and with 206Pb/204Pb (>19.5), suggest an asthenospheric source containing a strong mantle plume component. Partial melting models require ≤2% melting to produce primary basanite and ≤5% melting to produce alkali basalt from the same mantle source. The differentiation of the phonolitic series is modeled by fractionation of diopside, olivine, plagioclase, titaniferous magnetite, nepheline and/or apatite from basanite to derive 35% mugearite, 25% benmoreite and 20% phonolite as residual liquids. Fractional crystallization of a similar mineral assemblage from alkali basalt is modeled for compositions in the trachyte series. However, many trachytes have variable 87Sr/86Sri (0.7033–0.7042), low 143Nd/144Ndi (0.51280–0.51283), high δ18O (6.5–8.4‰) and are silica oversaturated, suggesting they are contaminated by crust. The trachytes evolved by a two-step assimilation–fractional crystallization process (AFC). The first step involved contamination of alkali basalt by calc-alkaline granitoids within the middle crust where high assimilation to crystallization rates (high-r AFC) produced trachytic magmas characterized by depletions in Ta and Nb relative to K and Rb. The second step involved further fractionation of these magmas by low-r AFC within the upper crust to produce another suite of trachytes showing extreme incompatible element enrichment (e.g. Zr>1000 p.p.m/ and Th>100 p.p.m.).last_img read more

OnTheMarket hits 10,000 branches helped by free listings offer

first_imgThe number of agent branches listing via OnTheMarket has reached 10,000, the company has revealed today, claiming that agent demand for its service continues to be popular with agents.This is an increase of 82% on its February total of 4,500 branches and means the portal now counts 54% of UK sales and lettings branches as its customers.It also now lists 570,000 properties or well over half the UK inventory total.Helped by an expanded sales team that has doubled in size since February and now numbers 31 people, OTM says it is achieving these extraordinary figures mainly by offering agents free listings via short-term introductory trial offers which it hopes to later convert to paid-for listings.FreebiesThen the long slog begins. It took Zoopla approximately 18 months to convert all its ‘freebies’ into paying customers when it was the only competitor with Rightmove, although OTM also has a cache of some 30+ million unallocated shares to sweeten subscription deals with, which it recently said it would use to persuade agents to sign up to longer-term deals.Following the removal of its ‘one other portal’ rule, OTM sales people must now often persuade new customers to list with and eventually pay for three portals.But OTM’s recent advertising push, paid for with its £30m war chest raised from the City, is also having an effect. Traffic to OnTheMarket.com since February now totals 56.6 million visits, double that of the same period last year.“We are very excited to have reached the significant milestone of 10,000 contracted agent offices less than six months after [our] admission to AIM alongside our capital raise,” says Ian Springett, OTM’s CEO (pictured, left).“We have seen and felt the momentum build strongly behind our disruptive strategy for sustainable fair pricing from an agent-backed portal.” Ian Springett OnTheMarket OTM July 26, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
