The project consists in the refurbishment of a forty year old bungalow. Although the owners did not provide a specific program at the beginning of the project, they expressed their wish to have large, well lit spaces and a terrace overlooking the river that runs along the North side of the site. The footprint of the original house was already quite large, so the transformation was based on the addition of a second floor and the reconfiguration of the internal spaces. The scenic nature of the site inspired us to increase the overall window area by consolidating and enlarging the existing ones.Save this picture!SectionWe paid particular attention to the new roof configuration to allow the new volume to integrate with the surrounding amicable neighborhood and create a link with the roofscape of the city where the client was born (Sibiu). The oversized dormers in the living area and the upper floor allow natural light to flow on the ceiling surfaces, creating a dynamic and playful effect. The dormers are oriented such that the house benefits from solar heat gain in winter months and in the summer, the mature trees on the site help to keep the house cool.Save this picture!© Claudiu OlaruThe entire structure is made in wood; studs, joists and beams. The roof and the second floor are clad with metal, standing seam roofing and siding respectively while the ground floor was integrated with the new construction simply by painting the original brick black.Save this picture!© Claudiu OlaruProject gallerySee allShow lessHostal Ritoque / Alejandro Soffia + Gabriel RudolphySelected ProjectsRound Up: Made in ChinaMisc Share CopyHouses, Renovation•Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Canada Photographs Year: last_img read more

The House in Asaka is the first detached house for a family of four who have long been living in a rental apartment. “We would love to have peace and quiet and a cozy feeling in our new home, and yet, we would also like to have a garden which brings an open feeling to the house.” This was the wish list my client shared with me when I received an order for designing their first family house.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe House in Asaka is located in a dense residential area about 10 minutes’ walk from the nearest train station in Asaka city, Saitama prefecture which is adjacent to the northern border of Metropolitan Tokyo. A regular-shaped, 10-meter wide and 10-meter deep lot lies in a Category 1 exclusively low-rise residential zone with a building coverage ratio of 60% and a floor-area ratio of100%. A narrow, 4-meter width cul-de-sac to the north in front of the house with neighboring houses built in very close proximity on all four sides of the plot makes it difficult to set a wide frontage to the house. A two-story, 100 square meter (approx.) house with parking will not fit the kind of garden my client wishes to have. Under the given environmental restrictions, I have set a goal to design a house where my client can enjoy both “closed and open” feelings.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraBy placing the building out of alignment with the street in front of the house and making the house into a parallelogram, the house does not face the exterior walls and windows of neighboring houses directly. The parallelogram shape creates two triangular-shaped vacant areas in the plot, giving more space between the house and the neighbors whilst bringing in natural light and letting fresh air flow in and out. A triangular-shaped area which is adjacent to the neighbor on the back becomes a backyard garden, creating an additional space between the two houses. By extending one side of the triangle along the angled exterior wall, the garden feels more spacious than its actual size.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe inner wall is laid in parallel with the exterior walls in a parallelogram shape that matches the volume of the building. As you enter the front door and move from a closed room that connects to a similar shaped, more spacious room without any corridor or orthogonal wall, the house gradually opens up to the backyard, giving the feel that you are further away from the street.

John Thompson & Kal Balian Antoun Help Pasadena Business Owners Define Their Banner Goals at The University Club

Photo credit: John LavittJohn Thompson, Kal Balian Antoun, James Harwoond. Photo credit: John LavittJohn Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun delivered an interactive presentation on achieving focus and developing banner goals at the latest Business Growth Workshop at the University Club of Pasadena. The gathered business owners from across Southern California probably were not expecting so much interaction so early in the morning from the leaders of the TG Loans mortgage team. By the end of the session, however, after answering pages of probing questions, the consensus in the room was that truly valuable work had been accomplished.Introduced on Tuesday, April 28 at the 7:30 am workshop by James Harwood of Total HR Management, the first idea presented during the presentation was that business plans are a huge waste of time. Rather than have an amorphous business plan with far-off goals, the strategy of John Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun was to provide the attendees with a clear and specific blueprint to implement over the next 60-90 day period. If you can enact your banner goals in the now, then today becomes truly effective as success evolves into an everyday process of actual implementation.Although the session felt at times like a self-realization weekend retreat for personal growth, John Thompson wanted to make it clear it was much more than just new age mumbo-jumbo. Rather, by addressing the concerns of the whole person, the well-wounded holistic approach avoids leaving any minefields behind to cross that could undermine the achievement of one’s banner goals. John Thompson appealed to the success-driven perspective of any business owner by clearly expressing how,“The daily activities in a business are not what drives the outcome. What drives the outcome is why you go to work. By connecting to your passion, you connect to your success.”Kal Balian Antoun supported this idea by illustrating the results of her own experience when she first took a seminar based in the same ideas. The reason John Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun is because they took the same seminar together with their team, then decided to make the jump into teaching what worked so well for them. Kal Balian Antoun explained how after implementing the program of banner goals into her own life, her family could not believe her personal shift in terms of discipline and dedication.In the end, both Kal Balian Antoun and John Thompson made clear that any banner goals developed in the session had to be SMART goals. SMART goals stand for Specific-Measureable-Attainable-Realistic-Time Bound objectives that actually can be accomplished within the 60 to 90 day time period. By avoiding wishful thinking in the form of pie in the sky indulgences, the program actually could lead to recognizable and rewarding success.Although it’s unclear whether or not the participants are going to put their SMART banner goals into action, at the very least, everyone at the latest Business Growth Workshop walked away with a greater sense of personal and business clarity. The interactive presentation by John Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun shows once again the value being delivered to the Pasadena Community by the ongoing series of events at the University Club.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.

The same became the talk of the town to the extent that social media started praising them for showing their Patriotism towards the Country. This obviously meant that any other lawyer accepting the brief for the Chinese App would be considered either less patriotic or as they say ‘ANTI NATIONAL’. Be that as it may, the above refusal of accepting a brief of a Chinese App in the background of the INDIA – CHINA Tension has surely opened up a discussion amongst the lawyers , as the rules of the profession demands that an advocate is bound to accept any brief and the refusal to accept a brief “must be exceedingly rare” and “reserved only for exceptional circumstances,”. Now what is an exceptional circumstance for an advocate to refuse a brief, has not been defined anywhere. But if one wants to know the answer, it could be traced to the customs and traditions followed by the bar since time immemorial. The variety of cases handled by the above mentioned Sr. Advocates and their likes could tell us, the kind of matters, that an advocate can and should accept, irrespective of the fact that the same could be considered as less Patriotic or Anti – National for a common man. Few of them are mentioned below: Appear and represent another Country such as the United Kingdom, of whom India has a dreadful & devastating history, and appearing in India also for the government and private parties. (we have renowned Indian Lawyers Appointed as Queens Counsel in the United Kingdom).Appear and represent on behalf of another country in India. (We have seen renowned lawyers appearing for countries like Italy, in a case where Indian fisherman were Killed by Italian Soldiers.)Appear and represent on behalf of a foreign company having its base in an enemy country, such as we see in international commercial arbitration cases.Appear and represent on behalf politicians accused of economic offences affecting the economy of the country as a whole and thereby posing serious threat to the financial health of the country.Appear and represent on behalf of persons / companies accused of serious financial crimes in India affecting the economy of the country as a whole.Appearing and challenging the policies of the Government of India, claiming it to be arbitrary, unjust and unreasonable.Appear and represent on behalf a Terror accused, Riot Accused, sedition accused, etc.Appear and represent on behalf Rapist, Murderers, Crime Lords, Drug Lords etc.Appear and represent on behalf certain political party or a certain class of people. Looking at the above variety, it becomes impossible to ascertain an exceptional circumstance, under which an advocate could refuse to accept a brief and therefore it becomes important to understand if at all under any circumstance, acceptance of a brief by a lawyer could be considered as less Patriotic or ANTI NATIONAL. Let’s evaluate: Laws and Rules A. The Bar Council of India Rules, 1975 provides that “An Advocate is bound to accept any brief in the Courts or Tribunals or before any other authority in or before which he professes to practise at a fee consistent with his standing at the Bar and the nature of the case. Special circumstances may justify his refusal to accept a particular brief.” B. The Bar Council of India Rules, 1975 also provides that “Every Advocate shall in the practice of the profession of law bear in mind that any one genuinely in need of a lawyer is entitled to legal assistance even though he cannot pay for it fully or adequately and that within the limits of an Advocate’s economic condition, free legal assistance to the indigent and oppressed is one of the highest obligations an Advocate owes to society. C. The Bar Council of India Rules, 1975 also provides that “It shall be the duty of an Advocate fearlessly to uphold the interests of his client by all fair and honourable means without regard to any unpleasant consequences to himself or any other. He shall defend a person accused of a crime regardless of his personal opinion as to the guilt of the accused, bearing in mind that his loyalty is to the law which requires that no man should be convicted without adequate evidence” D. Article 22(1) of the Constitution of India gives the fundamental right to every person not to be denied of the right to be defended by a legal practitioner of his or her choice. E. Article 14 of the Constitution of India provides for equality before the law and equal protection of the laws within the territory of India. F. Article 39A, of the Constitution of India and part of the Directive Principles of state policy, states that equal opportunity to secure justice must not be denied to any citizen by reason of economic or other disabilities, and provides for free legal aid. (A Bare reading of the above would show that an advocate has an important role to play in the administration of Justice. It also shows that the access to justice delivery system is an integral part of the Constitution of India and the state is under an obligation to ensure a legal system which promotes justice on the basis of equal opportunity to all.) 2. The Supreme Court in the case of A.S.Mohammed Rafi vs State Of Tamilnadu has observed: “16. In our opinion, such resolutions are wholly illegal, against all traditions of the bar, and against professional ethics. Every person, however, wicked, depraved, vile, degenerate, perverted, loathsome, execrable, vicious or repulsive he may be regarded by society has a right to be defended in a court of law and correspondingly it is the duty of the lawyer to defend him” 17. We may give some historical examples in this connection. 18. When the great revolutionary writer Thomas Paine was jailed and tried for treason in England in 1792 for writing his famous pamphlet `The Rights of Man’ in defence of the French Revolution, the great advocate Thomas Erskine (1750-1823) was briefed to defend him. Erskine was at that time the Attorney General for the Prince of Wales and he was warned that if he accepts the brief, he would be dismissed from office. Undeterred, Erskine accepted the brief and was dismissed from office. 19. However, his immortal words in this connection stand out as a shining light even today : “From the moment that any advocate can be permitted to say that he will or will not stand between the Crown and the subject arraigned in court where he daily sits to practice, from that moment the liberties of England are at an end.…… 20. Indian lawyers have followed this great tradition. The revolutionaries in Bengal during British rule were defended by our lawyers; the Indian communists were defended in the Meerut conspiracy case; Razakars of Hyderabad were defended by our lawyers; Sheikh Abdulah and his co-accused were defended by them, and so were some of the alleged assassins of Mahatma Gandhi and Indira Gandhi……” 3. The Supreme Court of India Conducts Exams for AOR and there are some very interesting study material uploaded on the website of the Supreme Court for the purposes of learning more about Professional Ethics. One such study material is an interesting Journal named “ARE THERE PUBLIC INTEREST LIMITS ON LAWYERS ADVOCACY”by MONROE H. FREEDMAN. Some of the excerpts from it is as under: a. The classic statement of the role of the zealous advocate was expressed by Lord Brougham in Queen Caroline’s case, a case in which Brougham threatened, literally, to bring down the kingdom. Brougham said: “. . . An advocate, in the discharge of his duty, knows but one person in all the world, and that person is his client. To save that client by all means and expedients, and at all hazards and costs to other persons, and, amongst them, to himself, is his first and only duty; and in performing this duty he must not regard the alarm, the torments, the destruction which he may bring upon others. Separating the duty of a patriot from that of an advocate, he must go on reckless of the consequences, though it should be his unhappy fate to involve his country in confusion. Let justice be done for my client, though heavens may fall. That is the kind of advocacy that I would want to have as a client and that is the kind of representation I feel bound to give as a lawyer. It is fair to note again, however, that that quotation tells only part of the story. There is also an advocate on the other side and an impartial judge and/or jury sitting over both. The heavens do not really have to fall, therefore, unless justice indeed requires that they do”. b. Under our adversary system, the interests of the state are not absolute, or even paramount. The dignity of the individual is respected to the point that even when the citizen is known by the state to have committed a heinous offense, the individual is nevertheless accorded such rights as counsel, trial by jury, due process, and the privilege against self-incrimination. Thus, although the defendant may be confronted by the entire “Commonwealth of Virginia” or all of “The People of the State of New York” (which is the way criminal prosecutions are captioned), the defendant is at least afforded that one advocate, that “champion against a hostile world,” whose zealous allegiance is to him or her alone.” 4. A lawyer as a member of the legal profession is an officer of the legal system and to keep the legal System intact, the “access to court of Law” is of utmost importance and to refuse to appear for a client would only be denial of justice to the person who wants to use the legal system. History is replete with instances of distinguished services by lawyers who have represented unpopular clients and causes. Regardless of his personal feelings, a lawyer should not decline representation because a client or a cause is unpopular or community reaction is adverse.It is the lawyer’s important task to see to it that the constitutional principles are adhered to despite public excitement, and without regard to personal enthusiasm or hate for the particular litigant. In order to more clearly define this responsibility, duty, or obligation, owed to the unpopular client, Charles W. Wolfram, in The Good Lawyer, draws a comparison between the duty of a lawyer and recusal of a lawyer. In determining if there is indeed a duty to recuse, or a duty to represent, a number of considerations exist; (1) Is the lawyer competent to handle the legal service which has been asked of him? (2) Is there an economic risk that the attorney will be taking upon acceptance of the client? And (3) Is there a high likelihood of imminent danger to the client? In other words, are there many other lawyers available and willing to handle this case; if other lawyers, for economic or morally objectionable reasons cannot accept the employment, it would appear to increase the danger to the client. The small unlikelihood that other lawyers would be available and willing to accept a particular unpopular client creates a stronger obligation for the attorney to accept such employment. 5. The lawyers are bound by very strict rules of conduct and an equally strict code of honour, especially designed to allow them to discharge their duties in the administration of justice. The function of the advocate is to present one side of the case with all the skill available, so that the judge can compare counsel’s presentation with that of the advocate on the other side, and then decide, after full investigation, where the truth lies. This pursuit of justice is the essence of the adversarial system.The purpose of this procedure in our law is not that a guilty person shall escape, but to make certain, so far as human fallibility can do so, that no innocent person shall suffer. Ultimately, the effectiveness of the above principles is contingent upon the conduct of the lawyers, and whether they are willing to respect or whether they will neglect those principles. The lawyer’s function is to defend the rights that are guaranteed to every individual under the Constitution. The constitutional rights of every individual are at risk when they are stripped from even one individual, no matter how unpopular the individual may be. If the system allows lawyers to determine the fate of a client by denying the constitutional right of representation by counsel, then the system lies precariously in unworthy and unconstitutional hands. To conclude, just as a doctor has the sacred duty to treat the patient to the best of his abilities and accept every patient irrespective of his caste, creed, Country etc, A Lawyer is duty bound to accept every client to protect the physical, moral, and intellectual integrity of the individual to the best of his capabilities. If there are Chinese Patients in India, our doctors are bound to treat them. If there are Chinese clients with briefs in India, our lawyers are bound to accept the same. AND ANY DEVIATION FROM THE ABOVE IS AGAINST THE TRADITION OF THE BAR.Views are personal only.(Author is an Advocate on Record in the Supreme Court of India and can be reached on [email protected]) Next Storylast_img

Storyteller Elizabeth Ellis transforms audiences

first_img Storyteller Elizabeth Ellis transforms audiences “I grew up thinking all children had grandfathers with hundreds of stories to tell,” she said. “And, my Aunt Ida was a keeper of old fairy tales.”Ellis said she was born talking and has not shut up once.And, she thought up a profession where she could use her God-given talent for talking.Elizabeth Ellis has lived in Dallas for 50 years and she has been a professional storyteller since 1978. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Ellis grew up in the Appalachian mountains of East Tennessee and was “lucky enough” to be born into a family of storytellers.“My grandfather was a circuit-riding preacher and he collected stories everywhere he rode,” Ellis said. “After church, he would spend the night with a family and listen to all their stories. Then, he would ride the next 12 to 14 miles, which was a long way, to the next church and collect stories from the family where he spent the night. He was like a bumblebee, going here and there.”Ellis’s grandfather would come home and tell her many of the stories he had heard while riding the circuit.

Homeless man jailed for three months after paying with $10 bill

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BOSTON) — A homeless man is suing Burger King for $1 million after he was arrested and jailed for trying to pay for a meal with a $10 bill, according to The Washington Post.Emory Ellis was arrested in November 2015, allegedly paying for his meal at Burger King with a counterfeit bill. He was in jail for months before it was determined he was wrongfully accused.Now, he is suing the franchise, saying he was discriminated against because he is black.His attorney Justin Drechsler said: “I know that had I walked into the Burger King with the exact same $10 bill, nobody would have scrutinized it. I never would have been accused of anything. I certainly wouldn’t have had the police called on me, no matter what the series of events.”The Secret Service determined the $10 bill was authentic in February 2016.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Lead possibly to blame for deaths of nearly 60 swans

first_imgdageldog/iStock(CALLAM COUNTY, Wash.) — More than 50 trumpeter swans have died in the past two weeks in northwest Washington, possibly due to lead poising, experts say.When Martha Jordan, the director of the Northwest Swan Conservation Association (NSCA), went on a routine survey at Crescent Lake on March 10, the swan population distribution was relatively normal. When she returned a week later, she noticed multiple carcasses and feather piles — remnants of a bird after they’ve been eaten by a predator.“I knew I needed to go out on my boat with my dog to search for more,” said Jordan.According to Jordan, almost all the swans have classic symptoms of lead poisoning: weight loss, swelling, a paralyzed nervous system that makes walking and flying difficult, and trouble holding their heads up.With 40 years of experience dealing with swans, Jordan said the event “blindsided everybody.”Though this type of die-off is common in other areas, it’s rare for this region, she said.Part of the reason could be due to weather. A rare snow storm hit the Pacific Northwest in February, which pushed a lot the swans and other animals into areas they don’t normally go. Those areas might have sources of lead, according to Daniel Zimmerman from the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.March is when the swans start to migrate to their breeding ground, and those that remain are usually single birds, as swans are known to have strong pair bonds.On one of her recent survey trips, Jordan saw a pair of swans who stayed behind, one swimming back and forth to its partner who was clearly sick and struggling.“The sick one made horrific sounds, sounds I’ve never heard a swan make, I just had to turn away because at that point there’s nothing I can do.”The next day Jordan saw one of them had died and the mate stayed by its side.“It’s hard to watch. You’re witnessing the lives of these birds,” she added.Lead shot has been banned from waterfowl hunting nationwide by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service since 1991, but there are lead shots still in the environment from hunting that took place before the policy and clay target shooting in the area.“That’s one of the things that’s very hard. We don’t exactly know where they’re getting all of it [lead],” Zimmerman told ABC News.It takes three to four weeks for symptoms of lead poisoning in the birds to show up, according to Zimmerman. By the time the birds are dying, it’s not clear where the lead came from.As a supporter for legal hunting, Jordan is urging people to use nontoxic ammunition.“There’s no good excuse to not,” she said. “Often people say nontoxic ammunition is too expensive, even though it costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to deal with the environmental consequences, taxpayer dollars, and they’re saying it’s too expensive for them?” said Jordan.NSCA is working closely with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to discuss next steps, including cleaning up the carcasses so there’s no secondary poisoning, placing poles where there is lead to discourage landing or feeding in the area and possibly track the swans if there is enough funding.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Studies of atmospheric internal gravity waves at Halley station, Antarctica, using radiosondes

first_imgAnalysis of high-resolution data from slow-ascent radiosondes released at Halley station, Antarctica (75°38′S, 26°40′W), shows that internal gravity wave phenomena are frequently present in the lower troposphere. There is a strong tendency for these waves to induce a vertical transport of the SE-NW component of momentum, this being the component perpendicular to the alignment of regular ridges in the ice shelf on which the base is built and is independent of the mean wind direction. A method for estimating the variation of the momentum fluxes with height is described. Results show that momentum flux divergences equivalent to accelerations of about 10 ms−1 per day are common at Halley.last_img
