The clients had moved into a rather ordinary brick and tile 1970’s house on the banks of the river Loddon in early 2005 and wished to rebuild using a system-built house from the continent, but had become disillusioned with the cost and inflexibility that this offered and so approached us as they had been impressed by a house some 400 meters along the river that we had completed the previous year (The ‘Attwood house’ which went on to win the Grand Designs Best Remodeled House in Britain Award in 2007). Initially, we offered to come up with a sketch design for a small cost on the basis of no-win, no job! Happily, they loved the concept and after a few months of developing their ambitions, we arrived at the final design. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoMetallicsTECU®Copper Surface – Classic CoatedWoodSculptformTimber Click-on BattensMetallicsKriskadecorMetal Fabric – Outdoor CladdingThe brief segregated the house into three distinct zones; an open living space; a guest room/ gym area; and a bedroom area. We based our concept on these three elements to create wings that adopt a pinwheel form. The whole ensemble is raised up on columns to deal with the fact that the river is subject to seasonal flooding to a depth of just over one meter. The house occupies roughly the same position as the existing, and is set parallel to the river but as the plot twists towards the lane, arrival is angled around an entrance court. Save this picture!A dark zinc-clad wing is pushed forward receive a staircase that slices up into an open hood that is timber lined, with a glazed room to the side containing guest suite that doubles up as a gym. The stair arrives onto a an entrance balcony, with glazed door leading into a central hall space – this is the day room, dedicated to outdoor living and leads out onto a large deck, complete with hot tub beneath a zinc canopy. Following the zig-zag of the pinwheel, a staircase then leads down to a garden deck, with boardwalk that arrives at a landing stage on the river’s edge. Save this picture!To one side of the central element is a long, open living wing, resting on a cantilevered steel table that frames parking space. This is a cedar-clad element, with full height glazed wall onto a balcony to the river façade and a projecting linear oriel onto the north, garden façade. The space is divided into kitchen/ dining areas with a timber storage unit to the far end concealing study. Save this picture!To the other side is a cubic bedroom block stood on spindly columns. Again, cedar-clad this contains bathrooms and two bedrooms to the lower level and a top-floor master bedroom eerie. Save this picture!The house is to be steel framed, with timber stud infill; cedar and zinc-clad with aluminium-framed windows (frameless glazing to gym area); single-ply roofing. The house is run by a computerized building management system that controls not just heating demands, but also lighting, solar control and audio-visual installations. The walls, floors and roofs are highly insulated using sheep’s wool insulation to create a highly efficient home. The house continues our interest in natural materials that weather well, and an architecture that seeks out an embrace and celebration of nature.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessSodra Lanken / Rotstein ArkitekterArticlesYAMoPo 2009: Yet Another Most Popular Architecture Sites RankingArticles Share Area:  242 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Hind House / John Pardey ArchitectsSave this projectSaveHind House / John Pardey Architects “COPY”last_img read more

Leeds alumni pledge £11,000 in one night

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising.

Howard Lake | 28 October 2009 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The University of Leeds is in Tier 3 of the scheme, receiving £1 in matched funding for every £3 donated inclusive of Gift Aid, up to a potential total match of £2.75 million. The formula means that every £3 donated by alumni can be worth up to £5 with Gift Aid and the government match.Adrian Salmon, Annual Fund Manager at the University of Leeds, said: “We’re delighted with the response from alumni to the Big Match. Our telephone fundraising team is made up of current Leeds students and is over 70 strong this year. For two thirds of the team, it’s their first experience of telephone fundraising.“They’re hugely enjoying not just the generosity from our alumni, but the sense they now have of a real connection with former generations of Leeds students, many of whom have led fascinating lives since graduation. Our telephone campaigns really help us build a wider Leeds community, as well as providing invaluable financial support for current Leeds students”.The team is also tweeting live from the calling room each night. Salmon believes that they could be the first charity in the UK to ‘live tweet’ a telephone campaign.“We hear so many fascinating stories over the phone each night and Twitter is a great way of sharing them quickly,” said Salmon.“We’ve heard about legendary student pranks, great fundraising our own alumni have done for other charities, and of course it’s also a way for us to thank our alumni for their generosity in real time. Telephone campaigns like this can be treated as invisible fundraising, but we think they offer a wonderful opportunity for our alumni to be able to share in the energy and enthusiasm of their University and their peers”.www.alumni.leeds.ac.uk/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=995&srcid=183center_img The University of Leeds’ Big Match campaign has generated nearly £25,000 in pledges from alumni in just over a week, with £11,000 of that being raised on one night (26 October).‘The Big Match’ is Leeds’ promotion of HEFCE’s Matched Funding Scheme for Universities, designed to help English universities boost alumni participation in philanthropic giving.A total of £200 million has been allocated for matching until July 2011, which universities receive at a 1:1, 1:2 or 1:3 ratio, depending on their fundraising experience, and up to a preset cap.

GM cuts jobs – Auto workers fight back

first_imgDetroit – General Motors announced Nov. 26 that it plans to slash over 14,000 jobs and close four plants in the U.S., one in Canada and two more in as yet unnamed locations. GM CEO Mary Barra, who earned $22 million last year, chose her words carefully when she revealed the plan. She said that at various times next year the plants would become “unallocated.” That meant the products currently built at the plant will be discontinued, and no new products will be allocated to the plants named in the announcement.Barra avoided saying the words “closed” or “idled.” The current contract between GM and the United Auto Workers states: “[T]he Company will not close, idle, nor partially or wholly sell, spin-off, split-off, consolidate or otherwise dispose of in any form, any plant, asset, or business unit of any type.” The UAW has rejected GM’s doublespeak. Any plant closing or idling — regardless of word choice — violates the current contract, which does not expire until September 2019. UAW International President Gary Jones blasted GM’s “callous decision,” stating: “The UAW and our members will confront this decision by GM through every legal, contractual and collective bargaining avenue open to our membership.” (The Hill, Dec. 6) Members, allies and other unions are being asked to write letters to the company opposing the closings.GM claims the cuts are essential because there are more plants than the company needs for the current vehicle market and many plants are only running one shift of production. UAW President Jones says this is due to the company’s decisions to shift more and more production to Mexico and other low-wage countries. However, Jones is taking a limited, nationalistic position on the fight for decent union jobs by demanding “tax and trade laws that reward U.S. investment.” Jones’ statement does not even acknowledge the attack on Canadian GM workers.The union officialdom is pursuing a narrow, legalistic strategy, combined with a tame tactic of letter writing. What is needed is militant activism. Wealthy companies routinely violate all kinds of laws — anti-discrimination, the right to organize unions, environmental protections. Only a mass struggle will hold them accountable.Grassroots activists plan labor-community fightbackThe rank-and-file autoworker group Autoworker Caravan held a meeting Dec. 8 in Detroit to strategize against the closings. The meeting opened with a video created by Sean Crawford, who works at the GM Detroit-Hamtramck plant, which is on the chopping block. Crawford charged that the Michigan cities of Flint, Pontiac and Saginawhad been “used up and spit out” by GM. He added, “We all know what GM is really after, the only thing they’ve ever been after, more money.” His video ended with a call to “unite across borders to build a movement of working-class people.”This set the tone for hearing a series of speakers and a lively discussion on why the plant closings are unacceptable and what actions a real fightback might take. Addressing the gathering were Detroit City Council President Emeritus JoAnn Watson; State Representative and State Senator-elect Stephanie Chang; Andy Gooderis, a representative of Congresswoman-elect Rashida Tlaib; UAW Local 909 President Ghana Goodwin-Dye, whose plant in Warren is slated to close; and Jerry Goldberg, representing Moratorium Now! Coalition to Stop Foreclosures, Evictions and Utility Shutoffs. The meeting was co-chaired by former Local 909 President and Shop Chair Frank Hammer and UAW Local 869 Trustee Martha Grevatt.The speakers brought out the fact that the plant closings not only violated the contract, but violated terms of state and federal tax breaks that had tied the giveaways to job creation by GM. There are many alternatives to closing the plants, including retooling them to combat the climate change emergency. Instead of building gas-guzzling trucks, auto workers could be building clean electric vehicles, buses and trains for mass transit as well as solar panels and wind turbines. The eminent domain laws, which were used in the 1980s to seize and destroy a whole neighborhood so GM could build the Detroit-Hamtramck plant, could be used instead to seize the plant and run it under union-community control.The group decided to demonstrate outside the annual Detroit auto show in January and to form a contingent in the annual Martin Luther King Day march. The workers also discussed the need to build fightback committees inside the plants. A solidarity collection netted over $125 for fired, injured GM workers in Colombia who have been fighting for justice since 2011. The meeting also celebrated the tenth anniversary of Auto Caravan’s inaugural action. The group was founded when it sent a car caravan to Washington, D.C., in 2009 to demand no contract concessions be attached to the terms of the GM and Chrysler bailouts by the U.S. government.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Yosef Azizi Banitrouf freed on bail after 68 days in prison

first_img News Follow the news on Iran Receive email alerts Organisation News “We strongly deplore the arrest of Banitrouf, who was simply expressing his personal opinion in articles and in interviews given to other newspapers,” it said. “As soon as a journalist speaks out in Iran, the authorities crack down, either by closing the paper concerned or throwing the journalist in prison.”There are now 12 journalists and cyber-dissidents in jail in Iran, which remains the Middle East’s biggest prison for journalists.” Eight plainclothes agents raided Banitrouf’s home and seized all his papers, his computer and telephone address book. The agents said they had a warrant but refused to show it to his wife or say where they were taking him, though he is thought to be in Teheran’s Evin prison along with most of the country’s other jailed journalists. After giving interviews to the national and international media a few hours after he was taken away, his wife received threatening phone calls from one of the agents who told her not to talk to the media.The arrest came after ethnic clashes on 15 April in the southern region of Khuzistan between security forces and the majority Arab community there. Banitrof is a leading Arab intellectual in Iran and had defended the protesters and condemned the violence. He worked for 12 years for the daily Persian-language paper Hamshari bu was sacked when hardliners took it over. He now writes for several other papers. Reporters Without Borders said Alijani’s respiratory problems had worsened because of the harsh conditions of his detention. Officials at Evin prison have refused to give him medical treatment he urgently needs despite pleas from his wife. The worldwide press freedom organisation called for immediate release so he could be cared for by doctorsHe has been in Evin prison since 14 June 2003 and began a hunger-strike a week ago, on 20 April.

Banitrouf had been arrested at his home on 25 April.”His release is very good news but we must not forget that four other journalists are still being held in Evin prison in very harsh conditions, that one of them, Akbar Gangi, has been on hunger strike for the past 19 days, and all of them urgently need appropriate medical treatment,” the organisation said.Iranian journalists are constantly subject to arbitrary measures ranging from newspaper bans to imprisonment, Reporters Without Borders said. “The new government must put a stop to the arrest and illegal detention of intellectuals and journalists,” the organisation urged.Banitrouf worked for the daily Hamshari for 12 years but was recently fired by the ultra-conservatives who took over the newspaper’s management. Since then he has contributed to several other news media.center_img 1 July 2005 Iran Call for release of two imprisoned journalists Reporters Without Borders called today for the immediate release of reformist Iranian Arab journalist Yosef Azizi Banitrouf, who was arrested in a raid on his home on 25 April.

Concern about increase in violence against journalists

first_img Yemenis have generally enjoyed more freedom of expression since Abd Rab Mansour Hadi succeeded Ali Abdullah Saleh as president in February 2012, but this progress has been accompanied by an increase in threats and violence against media personnel by the opposition and various armed groups.“We condemn the escalation in attacks on journalists, who have a right to practice their profession without others putting their lives in danger, and we call on the authorities to respond by conducting independent investigations into all these attacks,” Reporters Without Borders said. In one of the latest incidents, four employees of Dubai-based Al-Arabiya TV – news director Jamal Noman and cameramen Fouad Al-Khadar, Abdallah Asoufi and Fath Al-Jabari ¬– were beaten, insulted and threatened by participants in a march in Sanaa on 18 September calling for the prosecution of those responsible for the 2011 “Kentucky massacre.”Two apparent supporters of independence for southern Yemen attacked Nabeel Ahmad, a cameraman with Suhail TV, a Yemeni station, and tried to grab his camera while he was filming a documentary in Crater, a district in the southern city of Aden, on 9 September.The staff of the newspaper Al-Sharea reported on 9 September that they had received telephone calls warning them to “stop publishing any information about Al-Qaeda and Saudi Arabia” if they did not want the newspaper’s premises burned down with all of its employees inside.The Yemeni government’s failure to guarantee freedom of information includes an inability to stop displays of mistrust of hostility towards journalists from within the ranks of the police and security forces.National Security Agency personnel detained Adel Abdu Al-Mughni, editor in chief of the online news portal Al-Wahdawi.net, for several hours at Sanaa international airport on 14 September as he returned from attending a seminar for journalists in Morocco. Journalist and human rights activist Mohammed Al-Abbsi was threatened by the National Security Agency after he published a letter from the head of the agency to the oil minister on 2 September calling for the dismissal of union members who were pressing for a strike in the oil industry.Abbsi and Al-Neda’a newspaper editor Sami Ghalib were unable to accept invitations to address the Swedish parliament and the University of Copenhagen about human rights violations and threats to journalists in Yemen. As Sweden and Denmark have no consulate in Yemen, the two journalists followed standard procedure and applied to the French embassy for European “Schengen area” visas, but the French embassy refused to issue them.Meanwhile, New York-based Human Rights Watch issued a report on Yemen on 19 September entitled “‘A Life-Threatening Career’: Attacks on Journalists under Yemen’s New Government.”In a press statement announcing the report’s release, HRW said: “A surge of attacks on journalists since a new president took office in Yemen may overwhelm the recent progress toward freedom of expression.” Organisation Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News Fixer for foreign reporters held in Aden for past five months January 6, 2021 Find out more News News February 11, 2021 Find out more to go furthercenter_img News September 24, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern about increase in violence against journalists February 26, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Yemen YemenMiddle East – North Africa United Nations: press freedom situation “deeply worrying” in Yemen, according to RSF RSF_en YemenMiddle East – North Africa Yemeni journalist killed, nine wounded in Aden airport explosionslast_img read more

The Queen’s Breakfast, staged in collaboration with the Tournament of Roses, is one of the longest standing traditions for the city of Pasadena and the premier (ages 21-41) professional leadership organization in the Pasadena and surrounding communities known as Pasadena Jaycees.“People really enjoy learning more about the Royal Court and understanding why these girls have been selected. It makes it that much more special when they seem them on the float during the parade,” said Pasadena Jaycees Chairperson Nicole Wood.The breakfast featured all seven members of the 2017 Tournament of Roses Royal Court accompanied by their mothers in lighthearted discussions with KABC7 Eyewitness News Co-anchor and Master of Ceremonies David Ono.The 2017 Royal Court includes Queen Victoria Castellanos and Princesses Shannon Larsuel, Natalie Petrosian, Maya Khan, Audrey Cameron, Autumn Lundy and Lauren ‘Emi’ Powers.“The Queen’s Breakfast is still a tradition of bringing all the former Rose Court members together, having a reunion and learning more about the girls and their moms and keeping the strong relationship with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses,” said Wood.The Queen’s Breakfast is one of approximately 100 appearances the Royal Court makes leading up to the famed Rose Parade on New Year’s Day.“I hope that throughout my years I never let any of the committees of the Tournament of Roses down.

The petitioner seeks to make the inclusion after being informed that the Himachal Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act, 2019 and the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Ordinance, 2020 have also been passed along the lines of the laws being challenged . The plea was filed originally for challenging the constitutional validity of the Uttarakhand Freedom of Religion Act, 2018 and the passing of the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance, 2020. According to the petitioner, the Indian citizens enjoy the Right to Privacy as a fundamental right but the Acts and the Ordinances are unconstitutional as they attempt to control the life of the residents of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh, and to not allow them to take charge of the significant decisions in their life. The petitioner has therefore requested addition of the State of Himachal Pradesh and the State of Madhya Pradesh as Respondents to challenge the constitutional validity of the Himachal Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act, 2019 and the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Ordinance, 2020. The application states that the Himachal Pradesh Act has re-enacted the struck-down provisions of the 2006 Act, and has done so in a form which is even more obnoxious and unconstitutional than the provisions which were struck down by the Honourable High Court of Himachal Pradesh in Evangelical Fellowship of India v. State of Himachal Pradesh 2013. The petitioner has called it a case of patent Legislative overreach and an attempt to legislatively overrule a binding declaration of law by the competent High Court. In consideration of the fact that the Himachal Pradesh Act was notified one month after the Uttar Pradesh Ordinance was promulgated, the petitioner opines that the decision was not based on any substantial statistics of alleged love jihad instances but just following suit as other States were anticipating enacting similar laws. The application states that the enforcement of the Madhya Pradesh Ordinance comes in the face of harassment of young vulnerable couples who are deprived of their right to marry any individual on their free will and is modelled on the UP ordinance, Uttarakhand Act and the Himachal Pradesh Act that penalises conversion from one religion to another for marriage. According to the petitioner Love Jihad has played over the years to divide the country with no official numbers or evidence of forced conversions and that the fears of rising ‘love jihad’ cases have been “baseless” from the very start. Even though the rhetoric of Love Jihad has been sold off quite often in India, especially starting from Kerala and Karnataka, the Government had admitted that the term ‘Love Jihad’ is not defined under the extant laws and no such case of ‘Love Jihad’ has been reported by any of the central agencies. The application has requested for an amendment in its writ petition and addition of the following two prayers: Issue a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate writ order or direction to declare the impugned Act – Himachal Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act, 2019 ultra vires of the Constitution of India; Issue a writ of mandamus or any other appropriate writ order or direction to declare the impugned Ordinance – Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Ordinance, 2020- ultra vires of the Constitution of India; The petitioner has also requested for an amendment in the application filed seeking stay of the conversion laws and has urged to add the following two prayers: Stay the operation of Himachal Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act, 2019 ultra vires of the Constitution of India; Stay the operation of Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Ordinance, 2020; The application has been filed by Advocate Tanima Kishore on behalf of the petitioner.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
