Whitehorse / DesignBuildBLUFF

first_img 2009 “COPY” Houses CopyHouses•United States Projects Text description provided by the architects. DesignBuildBLUFF is a non-profit organization that builds environmentally sustainable homes in the Navajo Nation. Their work introduces first-year graduate students in architecture to the culture and history of Utah’s desert southeast, where they design, and ultimately build a home for a Navajo Family. DesignBuildBLUFF seeks to engage its constituents–students, volunteers, staff, in the realization that architecture can provide unparalleled personal enrichment and quality of life. Our projects incorporate salvaged and found materials, modern technologies, and traditional building methods. Calloused hands, engaged minds, and open hearts align with resourcefulness and ingenuity to create a home for some of the last people to expect it. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoWindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityWindowsAccoyaAccoya® Windows and DoorsOn the Navajo Reservation in southern Utah, Suzie Whitehorse lives with her four children in a Hogan, a traditional American Indian-style home. The 44-year-old woman managed to escape with her children from an alcoholic husband but can’t find a job and does all her cooking and cleaning in the 15-foot wide dome-shaped hut. She is cramped in there with beds, a small stove and refrigerator. However, thanks to the work of 18 graduate students from the University of Utah’s College of Architecture and Planning, Whitehorse will be getting a home for herself and her four children. Save this picture!“Right sized”, a home less than 1,000 square feet. The most sustainable building resource on the Navajo Reservation is earth. Hence, the idea to build a “rocket stove”, which burns kindling size pieces of wood, provides a heating “stove’ atop a 55 gallon barrel in line with the 20 feet of flue which heats a “cob” bench, which in turn thermally heats the home. Moreover, the idea has proven to be the primary heating source for the entire home, nearly rendering unnecessary the in-floor radiant heating, which itself begins with vertically-oriented solar hot water panels that provide the south wall of a shed harboring the hot water reservoirs. Save this picture!So, mere kindling the size of wood shims provide the family of five comfort during the brutally cold high desert winters. Enough “cob” — clay, sand, straw and water — was produced purely by heart and hand (and feet, boot-crushing tenacious clumps of hand-and-shovel harvested clumps of clay) by a three-man team to cover the hand-made compressed earth bricks built up to correctly position all of the hand-made (on-site, student-welded) components — combustion cylinder, clean-out chambers, lids and insulated handles, the aforementioned drum and interior cylinder leading to the horizontally winding flue. Decidedly low-tech, quasi-vernacular and eminently scalable. There is no HVAC system — really no mechanical system whatsoever, just the sun and a little bit of wood, and the breeze. Save this picture!The overriding aesthetic intent was inspired by the vernacular pole barn. Additionally, accidentally, there exists a second iconography to the innately cultural hogan on the Navajo Reservation, namely the single-wide trailer, much more architecturally provoking in it’s simplicity and adaptability to the east/west elongated rectangle which provides a longer south-facing aspect for glazing and low-tech, vernacular passive solar orientation. The raised house allows the ubiquitous ‘blow-sand’ to pass beneath it, rather than quickly pile up alongside. Interestingly, the air that flows in the shade beneath the home cools, and it pleasantly refreshes the back deck, an abstracted version of the traditional “shade structure” to which the indigenous peoples move as the seasons switch from high desert brutally cold to high desert brutally hot. Save this picture!Only four feet off the ground it also encourages an inordinately greater amount of natural ventilation. The southern exposure is calculatedly glazed for optimum passive solar heating, exposing the sun’s reach to the above-mentioned in-floor radiantly heated concrete thermal mass. The exterior of the Whitehorse home is raised by recycled telephone poles, clad by recycled sheets of aluminum accented by recycled, discarded and aesthetically reconstituted shipping pallets. Natural plaster completely covers the interior, altering color by naturally mixing different deposits of back-breaking, hand-shoveled 5 gallon buckets of clay. The large singly shed roof is guttered, which slope toward the center on the north side and downspout into a 2,000 gallon buried cistern.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessMusic-Themed Upscale Hotel CompetitionArticlesNew Taipei City Art Museum Proposal / STUDIO_KICKArticles Share Save this picture!+ 12 Share Year:  United States Whitehorse / DesignBuildBLUFF ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/164337/whitehorse-designbuildbluff-studio Clipboard “COPY” Architects: DesignBuildBLUFF Year Completion year of this architecture project Whitehorse / DesignBuildBLUFFSave this projectSaveWhitehorse / DesignBuildBLUFF ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/164337/whitehorse-designbuildbluff-studio Clipboard CopyAbout this officeDesignBuildBLUFFOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityHousesUnited StatesPublished on August 30, 2011Cite: “Whitehorse / DesignBuildBLUFF” 30 Aug 2011.

Grenada Today to be liquidated as a result of former prime minister’s libel suit

first_img May 13, 2021 Find out more Americas Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en The Grenada Today weekly is apparently about to disappear as a result of a drawn-out libel suit by one of Grenada’s former prime ministers, Keith Mitchell. High court judge Claire Henry ordered its liquidation this week after the owners failed to reach an agreement with Mitchell over payment of an exorbitant damages award.“Grenada Today’s liquidation is bad news for media diversity and, above all, a very bad precedent for the resolution of disputes linked to press offences,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Regardless of the substance of the case, it highlights the disproportionate nature of damages awards that threaten the survival of the publication concerned.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We call for a legislative amendment that limits the amount of damages that a plaintiff can demand. And we hope that, although there are no further possibilities of appeal, that Grenada Today can nonetheless still be saved by a last-minute deal.”One of the Caribbean island’s five weekly newspapers, Grenada Today has to close after to failing to obtain a reduction of the 71,000 US dollars it had been ordered to pay Mitchell, who was prime minister from 1995 to 2008 and who sued the newspaper in 2001 for publishing a reader’s letter which he regarded as defamatory.Originally set at 44,600 US dollars, the damages award was increased to the present level on appeal in 2003. While Grenada Today’s liquidation now seems inevitable, its editor, George Worne, has reportedly been approached with a view to opening a new paper. The Grenada Today case is very similar to the kind of lawsuit specifically designed to intimidate and silence critics that is referred to in English-speaking countries as a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation or SLAPP. It usually takes the form of a defamation action carried out with the aim of forcing the target, a news media or NGO, to either fold or retract because mounting legal costs or the threat of a ruinous damages award.Reporters Without Borders supports the principle of anti-SLAPP legislation. to go further WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists News October 28, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Grenada Today to be liquidated as a result of former prime minister’s libel suit Newscenter_img Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Receive email alerts June 7, 2021 Find out more June 3, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Americas Reports Americas Newslast_img read more

S&P/Case-Shiller Index Shows Improvement in January

The 10-city index ticked up a negligible amount, meanwhile.“The housing recovery may have taken a breather due to the cold weather,” said David M. Blitzer, chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices.Compared to December, 12 cities across the nation reported price declines (unadjusted), with eight performing worse than they did at the end of 2013. Chicago and Seattle declined the most (-1.2 percent and -0.8 percent, respectively), posting their fourth straight month each of depreciation.On an annual basis, the 10- and 20-city composites reported increases of 13.5 percent and 13.2 percent, respectively, representing a step back from the 13.6 percent and 13.4 percent annual growth rates recorded in December.All cities on the 20-market composite saw growth, though S&P reports 12 of them saw their annual rates worsen.Las Vegas and San Francisco remained the only two metros to post annual gains exceeding 20 percent; prices in those cities were up 24.9 percent and 23.1 percent, respectively. San Diego showed the most improvement compared to December’s rate of growth, recording a year-over-year return of 19.4 percent versus 18.0 percent previously.Despite the slowdown, Blitzer says recent data point to continued gains throughout 2014.“Although most analysts do not expect the same rapid increases we saw last year, the consensus is for moderating gains,” he said.The Case-Shiller Indices are the second of three major January price reports scheduled this week; Black Knight Financial Services’ monthly report, released Monday, recorded no change month-over-month and an 8 percent increase year-over-year.Raj Dosaj, VP of behavioral models and HPI for Black Knight Data & Analytics, noted at the time that the company’s index isn’t impacted as strongly by seasonal effects, leading to differences in the data.

Status quo is the worst order to pass! The courts may instead say that protection from arrest is granted for 2 weeks”, commented Justice D. Y. Chandrachud on Thursday.This was in context of a submission that a blanket ban on any coercive steps, granted by High Courts under section 482, CrPC by way of interim relief, operates to restrain the investigating agency from recording any evidence and even proceeding with the investigation, in addition to arresting the accused. The bench of Justices Chandrachud, M. R. Shah and Sanjiv Khanna was considering the contours of the power of quashing under section 482, CrPC and the power to grant interim relief by way of bail/anticipatory bail, stay on coercive steps i.e. a stay on arrest and investigation. “When the High Court says that there shall be no coercive steps, this would also mean that you cannot be interrogated. This hampers investigation!… The right to investigate is with the IO, not with the court. The discretion of arrest lies with the IO and not with the court. The court can exercise this power in anticipatory bail and bail pleas. But let’s not say that the court will decide how the investigation is done or that the court can pre-injunct the rights of the IO… It is in your (the accused) interest also that the investigation is done”, observed Justice Khanna.”Upon the registration of the FIR, the accused is mainly worried about the arrest. So 438 is the remedy. If the FIR is investigated and no case is made out, then the police gives A, B, C summary report, and it will be considered. It is in the interest of the accused also that the investigation is carried out. Nowadays, within one day of the lodging of FIR, the quashing is sought. There is no time given to the IO”, weighed in Justice Shah.”Is the High Court justified in passing an order when there is an alternative remedy under section 438 of the CrPC which has been invoked? That way, you will be in 2 courts!”, remarked Justice Khanna.”If the counsel prays for pre-arrest bail, then he may be asked to specify if he has moved a 438 application before the sessions court. In that case, he must be asked to go there or withdraw the same. One cannot be given multiple chances. Normally, when counsel find that the court is not inclined under 482, they withdraw it and go under 438. The client may also engage another counsel to go under 438 and conceal that fact…As judicial officers, we tend to put sections and jurisdiction in parts. It leads to complications at times”, expressed Justice Khanna.’Courts must inculcate fear of the law, of the consequences, whether it is civil or criminal jurisdiction’Yesterday, the bench had expressed regret that because of the inadequacy of civil justice administration, every matter is increasingly being given a criminal colour.”Just now we were hearing the matter for alienation of property in public trust. We told the petitioner that if he didn’t deposit ‘X’ amount of money, we won’t dismiss the petition but we will impose exemplary cost. It is important that the courts start insisting on this. Otherwise, there is no fear of the law, of the consequences, whether it is civil or criminal jurisdiction”, explained Justice Chandrachud.In the instant case, the petitioner had impugned an order of the Bombay High Court allowing another bidder to complete the formalities and procedure for the sale of the property of the public trust, on the repeated failure of the petitioner to deposit the requisite sum with the registry of the court and finally, on his cheque being dishonoured.”I will tell you my mistake. About a year ago, I deleted an order of cost. The respondent came back and said ‘We are not aggrieved by the SLP dismissal. You can ask the cost to be paid to the Supreme Court Bar Association or anywhere else but please don’t delete it’. We had been led astray in deleting the order of cost…because there is so much work and ultimately, we are also dependent on the lawyers only”, illustrated the judge.The bench had on Wednesday expressed concern regarding the rising trend among High Courts across the country to routinely grant interim relief by way of a stay on any coercive action pending a writ petition or a plea under section 482, CrPC for quashing of criminal proceedings. Accordingly, the bench undertook to lay down guidelines in this behalf.The bench was hearing an SLP arising out of a September, 2020 order of the Bombay High Court on a writ petition. While granting time for the filing of a reply affidavit with additional documents, the High Court had in the interim directed that no coercive measures be adopted against the present respondents (director of a real estate development company and his business partners) in respect of the FIR registered by the present petitioner (Neeharika Infrastructure Pvt Ltd) with the Economic Offences Wing for alleged offences under Sections 406, 420, 465, 468, 471 and 120B of the IPC. On October 12 last year, a bench headed by Justice Chandrachud had issued notice on the SLP, and granted an ad-interim stay on the aforesaid direction of the HC. The bench had recorded that three orders were passed by the Additional Sessions Judge, City Sessions Court, Mumbai on 15 October 2019 under Section 438 of the CrPC granting interim protection from arrest to the respondents. Moreover, the protection which was granted by the Sessions Court was extended from time to time and nearly a year thereafter, a writ petition was moved before the Bombay High Court in which a blanket order has been passed on 28 September 2020.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
