The Hill House sits in an area of Winchester that has a hidden and secluded feel yet somewhat paradoxically, has some of the greatest views in the city.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerBuilt in the late 70s, the five bed house was recently bought by the current owners from an elderly lady who had not changed the property since its construction. The existing layout was dark, outdated and denied the occupants an appreciation of the stunning views of which the house commands.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe client’s approached AR Design Studio with a simple brief; increase the area of the living spaces, allow as much natural light in to the house as possible and maximise the views out.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerExternally, the now linear nature of the house is highly apparent. At the rear, an elongated insertion frames the new aspect of the house. At the front, one now enters the home via a new double height box which has created a visibly welcoming and clear entrance. Both of these new features are clad in fibre cement, defining the property with a bold and contemporary character.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe house, split across three levels, has the bedrooms and bathrooms located on both the lower and upper floors. One arrives on a split level landing and is met with snippets of the stunning views that make the location so special.Save this picture!Proposed Ground Floor PlanDescending a few steps down, one arrives at the central floor which plays host to the kitchen, dining and living spaces where the insertion of the contemporary box has allowed for the exterior wall to be completely removed and replaced with a single expanse of sliding glazing; one cannot fail to appreciate the uninterrupted panorama yet feel complete privacy due to the clever orientation of the house.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerTo make the most of the wide plot and provide a new outlook, AR Design Studio proposed the idea of increasing the width of the central floor. In this new space the kitchen, a clean and seemingly simple space, encompasses clever touches which hide the pantry and utility rooms with ‘secret’ kitchen unit doors.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerAs keen hosts, the client’s wanted somewhere for entertaining. The dining space, now large enough to contain a dining table of grand proportions, allows the client’s to enjoy parties.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe entire property has been finished with a visibly neutral palette; primarily designed to allow the walls and floors to be decorated by the ever changing play of shadows and dappled light that filters through the trees and dances around the spaces throughout the day.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerProduct Description: The fibre cement cladding was chosen as it provided the clean and contemporary sense that we wanted to achieve, yet still gave a subtle connection to the existing brick pattern and form. Project gallerySee allShow lessRAAAF and Atelier de Lyon Reveal a Monumental Tribute to the Dutch Delta Works in Wa…Architecture NewsConvention Centre Strasbourg / Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten + Rey-Lucquet e…Selected Projects Share Photographs:  Martin Gardner Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Houses Year:  “COPY” “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Manufacturers: Marley Eternit, Stuv, Seimatic United Kingdom ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Save this picture!© Martin Gardner+ 17 Share Architects: AR Design Studio Area Area of this architecture project Blue Fish Construction Ltd 2016last_img read more

Fight budget cuts in cities

first_imgPhiladelphiaDozens of Philadelphia city workers wearing masks, standing on chalked X marks 6 feet apart, chanted, “Kenney’s cuts hurt” and “Trash this budget,” during a “Day of Action for a Just Philly Budget” on May 26. Protesters held signs for an hour in front of City Hall as spokespeople described how severe city layoffs and cuts in services will hurt families throughout the poorest big city in the U.S.                                                                                                  WWPhoto: Joe PietteStanding near a “Our City Won’t Work If We Don’t” banner, Erin Hoopes, a library supervisor, said, “We really want City Council and the mayor to be looking at how we can use progressive revenue reform to pay for the pandemic, not cutting city services for really vulnerable Philadelphians to pay the cost, because that’s what this budget is doing.”An online petition, which has generated about 1,324 signatures, argues, “Such cuts would harm all 1.6 million Philadelphians and undermine our region’s ability to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.” ( workers at the protest included members of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME )in District Council 33 Sanitation Workers, Local 696 (Licenses and Inspection), Local 694 ((Water Department), Local 1510 (Airport Workers); and AFSCME DC 47 (Library workers). Library After School Leaders and Library Foundation Workers, who do not have recognized union affiliation as yet, also participated.First of many protests to comePhiladelphia is required by law to pass a budget by the end of June, but a $650 million budget gap caused by the pandemic is a huge hurdle. In response, Mayor Kenney announced a severe austerity budget of mass layoffs, pay cuts and regressive tax increases.Whole departments, including the Office of Workforce Development and the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy, are slated to be shut down. City pools will not open this summer. A scholarship program that allows Philadelphia students to attend community college tuition-free has been cut in half.Nonunion city employees who make more than $35,000 a year will receive pay cuts between 1 and 7 percent, depending on their income. The first round of layoffs will occur June 1, but officials have not yet announced which departments will be most affected or how many employees will be left jobless.While city workers and residents will be hurt by the austerity policy, Kenney said no police officers would be axed, even though police, prisons and criminal “justice” expenditures of $1.2 billion account for the largest item in the city budget.To make matters worse, at a time when police abolition is being demanded by protesters in Minnesota and across the U.S., the FY20 police budget is being increased by $30 million, and 50 police officers will be added to the notorious Philadelphia Police Department of 6,575 high-paid cops.Increases in the wage tax, property tax, parking tax and license fees are regressive, placing the burden on those who can least afford them. Hitting working and poor communities the most, while nonprofits, corporations and wealthy individuals will continue to pay less than their share is bound to make the current economic crisis drag on for years.Organizers pointed out that the city should increase taxes on wealthy residents and corporations by taxing educational and cultural institutions (PILOTs or Payments in Lieu of Taxes), ending the property tax abatement program, canceling cuts to the Business Income & Receipts Tax, and increasing the realty transfer tax. They also call for increasing taxes on large landlords and real estate investors and using the Rainy Day Fund, which currently has $429 million for emergencies.Cops, prisons get $1.2 billion in Philly, Pentagon gets $1.2 trillion in WashingtonThe National League of Cities estimates that state revenue losses for cities, towns and villages across the United States will average 21.6 percent for 2020 and that nearly 1 million municipal workers could be furloughed or laid off. That would  result in “fewer firefighters to rush to the scene, fewer EMS responders to help those in need, fewer sanitation workers to keep communities clean, and fewer services for youth, seniors, and the most vulnerable people in our communities.” ( Economic Policy Institute reports that “state and local governments are currently forecast to be facing revenue shortfalls as large as $1 trillion over the coming years. If no help is forthcoming from the federal government to close these shortfalls, the result will be an economic disaster — one that is not confined to these governments. (, May 19)“Besides the obvious loss of valuable public services, cuts of this size would quickly ripple out from the public sector and destroy private-sector jobs.” (, May 19)Just as budgets in Philadelphia and other cities spend huge amounts of revenue on police and prisons while allowing wealthy residents to pay less than their fair share of taxes, the same pattern exists on the federal level.Successive Democratic and Republican administrations for decades have decreased taxes on wealth and increased Pentagon spending while gutting programs that communities need.The overall tax rate on the richest 400 households in 2018 was only 23 percent (, Oct. 6, 2019).  That meant their combined tax payments equaled less than one-quarter of their total income. This overall rate was 70 percent in 1950 and 47 percent in 1980.Obviously, the decline in the corporate tax and estate tax does not benefit poor and working families. The wealthy, who could afford to pay more, actually pay less than the average worker!According to a May 7, 2019, article in, as much as 61 percent of discretionary federal spending is used for war, preparations for war and the impact of war, which wastes more than $1.25 trillion.Politicians of both major parties from the local level all the way to the presidency claim there’s no money for health care, food, environment, housing and other community needs. But even during the current economic crisis exacerbated by the coronavirus crisis, they continue to approve increases in police, prison and military budgets without any significant opposition.It’s time for our communities to put a spotlight on the elephant in the room. Cut police and Pentagon budgets! People’s needs must come first!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Once Again Time for Heightened Awareness on Rural Roads

first_img SHARE Once Again Time for Heightened Awareness on Rural Roads Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The Indiana State Department of Agriculture has teamed with Hoosier Ag Today and other state agencies to reach out to motorists once again as the 2021 corn and soybean planting season ramps up. The goal is to remind all who use rural roads, farmers and motorists, to be on the look out for each other.ISDA director Bruce Kettler hosts the YouTube video. He says it’s worth the outreach even if only one minor mishap is avoided.“It’s real easy for all of us in the springtime to get really busy, especially as farmers have a lot of work to do,” Kettler explained. “There’s a lot of pressure on them to make sure they’re getting their crop in. Then for those of us on the road, and because of the seasonality of the business, sometimes we’re not used to seeing machines out on the road, especially after a winter like this when we just typically don’t. So, I think it really is important for us all to take time, slow down, and just pay attention and look ahead when we’re on the roads.”While filming on an Indiana farm, the operator told HAT getting his equipment on the road and safely moved from one field to another, is the hardest part of his job.“I was surprised to hear that,” Kettler said, “but I guess when you think about how they have to move their machinery and the various types of roads and situations that they get into, with maybe sometimes poor visibility it makes sense. Again, that’s why we want to make sure everybody takes their time and is concentrating and looking ahead. And avoid any of the distractions that are easy to have.”According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2018 farm equipment vehicles were involved in 98 crashes across the U.S., with two farm equipment vehicles being involved in fatal crashes in Indiana.“Planting season is a crucial time for our Hoosier farmers, they have a lot of ground to cover in a short amount of time,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Secretary of Agriculture. “I want to encourage all motorists to stay alert and be cautious while driving on rural roads this spring and to make room for large farm equipment so our roads remain safe for everyone.”Kettler added, “Each year, fatal accidents unfortunately occur on Indiana’s roads as large farm equipment moves from field to field. I want to remind all Hoosiers that farm equipment typically travels around 25 miles per hour or less, so please remain alert, slow down and share the road when approaching farm machinery.”While the term “farm equipment” encompasses a wide range of vehicles, the most common types motorists will encounter during planting season include sprayers, tractors pulling planters or tillage equipment, and large trucks hauling agricultural products. These vehicles are wide, sometimes taking up most of the road, and often travel at speeds no greater than 25 mph.The following list includes several safety tips for motorists approaching large farm equipment:Farmers will pull over when they are able to let motorists pass, but it may take time for them to get to a safe place to do so.Be patient. Farm equipment is wide, sometimes taking up most of the road.Be careful when passing. Do not pass in a designated “No Passing Zone” or within 100 feet of any intersection, railroad grade crossing, bridge, elevation structure or tunnel.Do not try to pass slow-moving farm equipment on the left without ensuring that the farmer driving is not planning a left turn. It may appear that the driver is pulling over to allow a pass when the farmer is actually preparing to turn. You will drive right into its path, endangering yourself and the farmer.Avoid tailgating, as some farm equipment might have to make sudden stops along the road.Allow plenty of time to get to a destination, be aware of alternate routes and avoid distractions.“Springtime in Indiana means crisp cool mornings and farm machinery of all sizes operating on and crossing county and state roads as they move from field to field,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter. “For the safety of both motorists and farmers, we ask for everyone to be attentive, patient and cautious when driving in rural Indiana during the active planting season.”Working with ISDA and Hoosier Ag Today to get the message out, are Indiana Department of Homeland Security, Indiana Department of Transportation and Indiana State Police.Source: ISDA By Andy Eubank – Apr 12, 2021 Previous articleHAT Market Analysis for 4/12/21 with John Zanker of Risk Management CommoditiesNext articleCoBank: U.S. Economy Gaining Momentum Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Once Again Time for Heightened Awareness on Rural Roads SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The foreign correspondents had not found interesting issues to coverat the opening of the forum. Several journalists said they had decided towait until the end of the conference and the likely adoption of resolutionsbefore covering the event.”This is a reactionary measure from another era. It has been years since wesaw a government censor the entire foreign press corps. The Togoleseauthorities have once again demonstrated how imaginative they are when itcomes to attacking the press,” said Reporters Without Borders’ Secretary-General Robert Ménard. The organisation has urged the communications minister not to apply this measure and to allow foreign correspondents to work without impediment.According to one correspondent from an international news agency who spoketo Reporters Without Borders, if this new measure is enforced, it could seriously compromise journalists’ ability to do their jobs. For example, they might be prevented access to official meetings or no longer be invited to attend government or other officials’ press conferences.Reporters Without Borders recalls that Togolese President Gnassingbé Eyadéma is included on the organisation’s list of international press freedom predators.

The Law Section 3 of the MTP Act contemplates four situations, wherein a woman can exercise her right to terminate pregnancy not exceeding 20 weeks, provided two registered medical practitioners shall certify the given conditions. -When pregnancy threatens the life of the mother. Even though a woman may normally be safe during pregnancy, certain patients develop symptoms like high blood pressure, cardiac distress etc., which can not only threaten the foetal health, but also the maternal health.-When there is substantial risk of the child being born with serious physical and mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped:-When the pregnancy is a result of rape: rape by itself exposes the woman concerned to great physical and mental trauma. In most cases, woman’s mental health is disturbed by the act of rape and pregnancy that results from it can cause serious mental distress to her.-When pregnancy occurs due to failure of contraception: an unwanted pregnancy can cause mental stress to the mother and in turn, affect her physical and mental well being. The PIL Contentions Cry for Life Society had approached the High Court contending that permitting abortion for the reason that the yet to be born is handicapped or that the pregnancy caused as a result of failure of device or method used by any married women or her husband for the purpose of limiting the number of children, violates the right to life of the unborn child.All pregnancies are not allowed to be terminated The bench comprising the Chief Justice S. Manikumar and Shaji P. Chaly observed that all pregnancies are not allowed to be terminated, but only those which meet the exceptional circumstances that are referred to in Section 3(2) of the MTP Act. It said: The exceptions carved out for termination of pregnancy would show that it is on account of adverse consequences to the life of a women, such a course of action is permitted and, therefore, the parliament in its wisdom, has introduced such provisions under MTP Act, 1971, and amended from time-to-time with good intention. So much so, the wisdom of the parliament on account of such intentions and object sought to be achieved by introducing such a provision cannot be said to be a thoughtless and insignificant one. True the constitutional courts can entrench upon the legislation, but such power should be exercised with utmost circumspection, since the framers of law have brought out the legislation with a real purpose to be achieved after taking into consideration various factual and other circumstances. But, at the same time, if any illegal circumstances like forcible termination etc., comes to the notice of the authorities, they are at liberty to proceed in accordance with law. That apart, the provisions of Section 3 of the MTP Act, 1971 make it clear that it only permits a voluntary action at the Will of a pregnant woman and in the case of pregnancy of a woman who has not attained the age of 18 or who has attained majority is a mentally ill person with the consent in writing of her guardian. Hence, it is clear that it is taking into account the choice of the woman or the guardian in any adverse circumstances that can occur on delivery and on being fully satisfied in accordance with the Rules, 2003 by a qualified medical practitioner, the medical termination of pregnancy is possible to be done. Considering all these aspects, we could safely come to a conclusion that the provisions so made for the medical termination of pregnancy is proportionate to the object sought to be achieved. A laudable object to be achieved by terminating the pregnancy under certain specified circumstancesReferring to various Supreme Court judgments which dealt with the application of Section 3, the bench observed that the provisions are made with a clear objective of protecting the life of a pregnant woman, and to control the birth of a child having severe mental ailments with a remote chance of survival. There is a laudable object to be achieved by terminating the pregnancy under certain specified circumstances, it added. While dismissing the PIL, the bench further said: “it cannot be said that everyone, who is not interested to continue with the pregnancy, is entitled as of right, to seek medical termination of pregnancy on any grounds other than the one mentioned under Section 3 of the Act. Furthermore, it is clear and evident from the provisions of Prohibition of Sex Selection Act, 1994, that any medical termination of pregnancy, which is sought on the basis of sex, selection and determination, is punishable as per the provisions of the said Act. Therefore, sufficient and more safety measures and precautions are undertaken by the parliament, in order to ensure that unnecessary termination of pregnancies are not insisted upon or carried out by a pregnant woman or a medical practitioner respectively. ” Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

EAT to rule on older staff rights

first_imgEAT to rule on older staff rightsOn 18 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today The DTI’s appeal against a landmark tribunal ruling giving employment rightsto older workers is to be heard in May. The tribunal decision, made last year, gives thousands of workers aged over65 the right to claim for unfair dismissal and redundancy payments. John Rutherford and Samuel Bentley won their claims for indirect sexualharassment after they were dismissed from their jobs in the clothing industryon the grounds that they were over 65. Their legal teams argued that there are far more working men over the age of65 compared to women, and therefore the cut-off point at 65 years discriminatesagainst men. Last month the Stratford Employment Tribunal awarded Rutherford £5,490 andSamuel Bentley £1,498.50. The DTI’s appeal is to be heard by the Employment Appeal Tribunal on 22 and23 May.
