Every corner in a house owns its respective functions that makes up a braid of atmosphere, Spouse house, presented in a different way.Save this picture!© Lindung SoemahardiLocated in a residential area of Bintaro, this house looks different from the other houses in the vicinity that have similar facade. This house was built with an area of 200 square meters, which is interesting in this site is due to have two main streets on the front and back side of the site, it will affect the shape and the program of the function in the home.Save this picture!© Lindung SoemahardiThe presence of two entrances on the front and back of the site results in a potential cross circulation problem in the house, for that there should be a ‘breakpoint’, in which an architect uses krowakisme philosophy (krowak = hole); such krowakisme is translated with the presence of inner court, void and bridge on the second floor.Save this picture!DiagramInner court is provided to accommodate the living entities such as fresh air, sunlight and wind can freely enter the house; thus, it enhances the quality of life for residents become better and healthier. Meanwhile, a void is to create the atmosphere between space of each floor more ‘fluid’ and the Bridge is to create a sense of space is more enjoyed.Save this picture!© Lindung SoemahardiThe house is divided into two floors. Taking the middle-aged owner into consideration, the master bedroom and the common room are situated on the first floor, while in the second floor there are two bedrooms for children and supporting room. Each room is adjoining the void and / or inner court, so every room gets lighting and natural atmosphere.Save this picture!DiagramThe facade of the house is separated into two parts, so that from outside the facade looks like to have two integrating houses. It is also based on the consideration of the facade of the house leading to the west side where being frontally exposed by the sunlight. Therefore, the division of the two masses serves to reduce exposure to direct sunlight on the facade of the house and reduce the impression that the house is too closed. On the left side there is a daughter’s room and on the right side there is a boy’s room. Because they have a couple of kids, a Spouse House name is given that means a couple. Then the pattern of those two facades is made consistent with the character of both. The pattern is made of a three-meter iron plate and in white color to match the surrounding houses. Save this picture!© Lindung SoemahardiProject gallerySee allShow lessSoorim Arts Center / IARC ArchitectsSelected ProjectsContainer Stack Pavilion / People’s ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Houses Indonesia Year:  Spouse House / Parametr IndonesiaSave this projectSaveSpouse House / Parametr Indonesia CopyAbout this officeParametr IndonesiaOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPesanggrahanIndonesiaPublished on July 01, 2016Cite: “Spouse House / Parametr Indonesia” 30 Jun 2016.

New York Times’ fund looks outward to support neediest outside the USA

It will support the global work with refugees of the International Rescue Committee.Over 100 years old the Neediest Cases Fund, which raises funds from readers, has traditionally provided assistance for people in need in New York. Now, it is targeting its support on “some of the most forlorn, victimised, scapegoated and voiceless people in the world – refugees”.The change in focus is a conscious plan to look beyond its own geographical base. The newspaper is expanding its global coverage of news ” when so many nations and institutions have chosen to look inwards”. Its charitable fund is following this outward-looking approach.Nicholas Kristof,  a New York Times columnist, announced the expansion of the fund in the newspaper. He wrote:“[I]n 1912, … since our community at that time was New York City, it made sense to focus on our back yard. Today we’re part of a global community and so The New York Times is reaching out to include the I.R.C.”About the Neediest Cases FundThe Neediest Cases Fund was created in 1912, a year after Adolph S. Ochs, the publisher of The New York Times, had given a stranger money for shelter and new clothes on Christmas Day.The first Christmas fundraising campaign in the newspaper raised $86,575 in nine days from 117 contributors.The newspaper pays the fund’s administrative costs, with the result that all donations go directly to the beneficiary organisations.This year’s reader appeal will accept donations until 10 February 2017.

Also in attendance were many members of the Transgenerational Theater Project.On April 25, at 10 p.m., Bostick was walking past a hamburger joint at 29th Street and 7th Avenue, two blocks from the Pennsylvania Station/Madison Square Garden complex, when Bostick was attacked. Bostick sustained severe head injuries and died 10 days later, on May 4. Only then were the community and the media notified.Bostick was the tenth trans person known to have been killed so far this year in the U.S. Eight of the ten were people of color.Among the speakers at the vigil were Cecilia Gentili of the Translatina Network, activist Tanya Asapansa Walker and Michael Adams, CEO of Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE). Slogans on placards stated: “Justice for Mx. Bostick,” “Fight racism” and “Black, Brown, Trans lives matter.”What was demonstrated by the more than 150 people in attendance is that the attacks on the trans and gender nonconforming community will be beaten back on our road to victory.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

BND ends illegal data processing after ruling on RSF Germany lawsuit

first_img News German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Receive email alerts News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Following a longstanding legal dispute with the German branch of Reporters Without Borders (RSF Germany), the German foreign intelligence agency BND has bindingly stated that it is ending its illegal analysis of metadata records of phone calls (call detail records). The German Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig had already ruled in December 2017 that the BND was no longer allowed to process the data of RSF Germany in its so-called “traffic analysis system” (VerAS). GermanyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsOnline freedomsProtecting sources Internet News New headquarters of BND in Berlin \ Berliner Kurier center_img GermanyEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsOnline freedomsProtecting sources Internet May 23, 2018 – Updated on May 24, 2018 BND ends illegal data processing after ruling on RSF Germany lawsuit Follow the news on Germany Organisation RSF Germany developed an online tool, the “BND-Generator”, to make it possible for anyone to have themselves removed from the VerAS database by a simple mouse-click. Within just a few days the BND received over 2000 applications for removal. Faced with this flood of applications the BND capitulated and has now stated that it no longer operates VerAS in its previous form.”With this statement by the BND we have achieved our goal: the illegal analysis of telephone metadata in VerAS has ended – and not just for us, but for everyone,” said RSF Germany’s executive director Christian Mihr. “This success shows that society can exercise control over its secret services through legal instruments and does not have to tolerate illegal activities. Thanks to the information provided by the Snowden leaks, we were able to take the matter to court, we received support from more than 2000 people – and as a result everyone’s rights have been strengthened.” A landmark ruling for better legal protectionThe Federal Administrative Court ruling in December already represented a milestone in the fight for better legal protection against intelligence agency surveillance in Germany. RSF Germany had filed the lawsuit with the help of the Berlin-based law firm HÄRTING back in 2015, in reaction to repeated cases of journalists being targeted for surveillance by intelligence agencies without being notified or able to defend themselves against such measures. This surveillance effectively made these journalists involuntary informants of the state, even though it is they who were supposed to monitor the state’s actions. RSF Germany filed the lawsuit in its own name, but with the ultimate goal of strengthening the rights of all those affected.The judges in Leipzig ruled that the BND lacked a legal basis for operating VerAS – and consequently it had to stop processing RSF Germany’s data in the system. In the VerAS database, the telecommunications traffic data gathered through the BND’s mass communications surveillance is analysed and interconnected. On the basis of this “signals intelligence surveillance” the foreign intelligence agency builds up increasingly extensive networks of surveillance targets even though the law does not allow this. “BND-Generator” forces intelligence agency to capitulateAt the re:publica 2018 digital culture conference at the beginning of May, Christian Mihr and lawyer Christof Elßner presented an online tool which could be used by anyone to invoke the Federal Administrative Court’s ruling. After entering one’s name and postal address in the “Bitte-Nicht-Durchleuchten-Generator” (“Please don’t screen generator”) the BND could proceed to confirming that the user had been removed from the VerAS database. Once this was done, the generator automatically created a letter demanding that the BND stop “storing or using telephone metadata from my telecommunications traffic in the VerAS files”, after which the BND had ten days to confirm that it had complied.On the eleventh day after the first applications were sent – by then there were more than 2000 of them – the BND sent RSF Germany a letter, in which the agency declared that the applications would not be processed individually and that the entire VerAS system had been restructured in order to stop violations of civil rights. With this declaration, the intelligence bindingly stated that it had implemented the demands of the Leipzig court ruling – not just for those who had sent a corresponding application, but for the system as a whole. RSF Germany informed all users of the BND-Generator of this on Thursday (17.05) and took the tool offline. Lawsuits in Karlsruhe and StrasbourgRSF Germany’s fight against the indiscriminate surveillance of journalists by the BND continues in two other legal actions. Part of the original lawsuit filed in 2015, which has since been separated from the original case in the course of the proceedings, has been submitted to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg . At the end of 2017, as part of a joint effort with other organisations, RSF Germany also lodged a constitutional complaint against a new BND law which expressly authorises the surveillance of journalists.Germany currently ranks 15th out of the 180 states in the RSF World Press Freedom Index.

Photo by Brian Ruane, Bridge PR. WhatsApp THE ADDITION, by Shannon Foynes Port Company, of a €2.8m state-of-the-art crane to the port will go towards maximising the potential of the deepwater port and the creation of up to 3,000 jobs along the estuary.Patrick Keating CEO of Shannon Foynes Port Company said that move is aimed at maximising the investment made by the firm and the potential of the unrivalled water depths of the estuary.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The crane, the largest seen in the port to date, can lift the equivalent weight as 120 family cars and is the latest purchase as part of the company’s ongoing €64million investment programme launched in 2015 that is seeking to transform the Shannon Estuary into a major national and international economic hub.This programme is the first phase of a planned long-term investment by SFPC under its Vision 2041 masterplan, which is targeting the creation of 3,000 jobs over the lifespan of the plan.Before installing the 370 tonne crane, a €12.5million investment in infilling 3.45 acres on the port’s East Jetty was carried out. Further reclamation work will also take place in the next stage of the investment programme, where a further two hectares of quayside space will see the berthage space increase to 8.6 acres.“We need efficient jetties but we also need efficient plant and machinery and this crane gives us all of that and more”, CEO Patrick Keating said.“This piece of equipment is future proofing the port. It’s something we need for the here and now but it’s also planning for the future. The greater lift capacity and reach allows us to bring new business; bigger ships, more ships and process them with faster turnaround times. So it’s an investment in our customers. It also has very low emissions and noise levels are lower also so its environmental footprint is minimised.”See more Limerick business news here RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Twitter Print Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

While three agreements stipulated that New Delhi shall be the designated “Venue”, one of them stated Kolkata as the “Place” of Arbitration.Arbitration Rules of the Construction Industry Arbitration Association were to followed and reference was agreed to be made in this regard vis-à-vis intricacies of the proceedings.Due to disputes arising between the parties, Appellant invoked the Arbitration clause and notice to the Appellant, wherein a Sole Arbitrator was apointed and the proceedings were to be conducted in New Delhi.The Respondent, however, disputed the existence of the Arbitaration Agreement between parties and filed a suit in the Court of Civil Judge, seeking declaration of the agreement as “null and void”, thereby obtaining a restraint order which stayed proceedings before the Arbitrator.  Subsequently, the Appellant’s application seeking reference of dispute to arbitration in light of existence of Arbitration agreements between parties was allowed and the Respondent’s plaint was returned.The Respondent was not a party to the Abitration proceedings and an ex-parte award, which was a common award engulfing all agreements between parties was made in favour of the Appellant in March 2015.Following this, a plea was preferred by the respondent before the District Court, Alipore, contending, inter alia, that one of the four agreements designated Kolkata as the venue of arbitration. This plea was eventually dismissed and was challenged in the Calcutta High Court.The Calcutta High Court gave a ruling favourable to the respondent, which led to the  opposite party ( Appellant) to come in appeal before the Supreme Court.What the Supreme Court Held:In terms of an objection raised by the Respondent in so far as passing of a common order in all four agreements, especially since one of the Arbitration Agreement’s stated that Kolkata was the designated Venue of Arbitration in one of the Agreements, the Supreme Court observed that, since  “at no stage, the aforesaid objections were raised by the respondent before the Arbitrator and the respondent let the arbitral proceedings conclude and culminate in an ex-parte award” , whether it would lead to have waived their right to raise any of the aforesaid objections at this stage?The Court observed that the Respondent could not raise such an objection at the present stage and that as it “failed to participate in the proceedings before the Arbitrator and did not raise any submission that the Arbitrator did not have jurisdiction or that he was exceeding the scope of his authority, the respondent must be deemed to have waived all such objections.”In this regard, the Court reproduced Section 4 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 which states:”Waiver of right to object: A party who knows that (a) Any provision of this Part from which the parties may derogate, or (b) Any requirement under the arbitration agreement; has not been complied with and yet proceeds with the arbitration without stating his objection to such non-compliance without undue delay or, if a time limit is provided for stating that objection, within that period of time, shall be deemed to have waived his right to so object.”The Court also noted that the said objection did not have any practical nuances as the “specification of place of arbitration may be significance in an International Commercial Arbitration, where the place of arbitration may determine which curial law would apply” but not in the present domestic arbitration.In light of this the Court allowed the Appellant’s appeal and noted that the Respondent was precluded from raising an objection with regard to the Venue or place of arbitration at this stage.The Court concluded :”It was possible for the respondent to raise submissions that arbitration pertaining to each of the agreements be considered and dealt with separately. It was also possible for him to contend that in respect of the agreement where the venue was agreed to be at Kolkata, the arbitration proceedings be conducted accordingly. Considering the facts that the respondent failed to participate in the proceedings before the Arbitrator and did not raise any submission that the Arbitrator did not have jurisdiction or that he was exceeding the scope of his authority, the respondent must be deemed to have waived all such objections”. Case Details Title : Quippo Construction Equipment Ltd v Janardan Nirman Pvt LtdCase No : Civil Appeal No. 2378/2020Bench     : Justices U U Lalit & Vineet SaranClick here to download judgmentRead JudgmentNext Story read more
