Villa in the Palms is named after the 19 towering coconut palms that thrived for decades on the land, which dictated the villa’s concept and footprint. This four-bedroom house overlooks a field and a seasonal stream. Save this picture!AxonometricEmbedded into the natural landscape, Villa in the Palms appears almost village-like, pockets of small homes nestled between 80-year-old coconut trees, nearly invisible from points further up the approach road. The fact that the trees on site existed for decades gives the overall house a very rooted presence.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerDesign Concept & ProcessThe studio’s design approach is to reconnect architecture with nature. Designing a regular building block would have required the cutting down of several trees to accommodate the programme. To avoid this, the building was carefully designed between the trees, without disrupting the surroundings, and not a single tree was felled during construction.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerConsequently, the structure is fragmented rather than monolithic, reminiscent of an old-time Goan village but at the same time entirely modern. Each bedroom on the ground floor, for example, feels like a separate home, replete with an en-suite bathroom, a rear garden, a front garden and an internal courtyard flanked by laterite walls. These independent volumes are interconnected with decks, passages, and bridges that meander through the trees and over pools and gardens. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThe building design adopts distinct local features and materials of the tropical coastal state of Goa, with exposed local laterite stone walls, sloping roofs, and screens made from 100-year-old recycled teak wood, while the landscape design consists of local tropical species (mostly various types of palms) that maintain their lush greenery through the year. Save this picture!Floor Plan – Level 1Roofs pitched at different angles pay homage to the monsoons and accentuate the staccato nature and fragmented aesthetic of the building. The interstitial roofs which cap each unit individually harvest rainwater, while further visually integrating the building in the lush landscape.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerBoundaries between the inside and outside are blurred and vast open spaces connect each living space.While everything is open and filled with light and air, the house is still very private. The laterite walls thermally and visually shield each room, maintaining privacy while orienting for the best views of the northern field. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThe Northern façade, on the other hand, opens with largely recessed glazing to the fields while not increasing the solar gain.With the thermal mass of the laterite walls, open northern facades & open internal courtyards, the house creates and is designed to be environmentally responsible to its siting, sustainable as far as a private home can be, while respecting the local environment and geography.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThe main entrance features a kind of dramatic crescendo, with a view that widens with each footstep – first some exposed laterite stone, then a glimpse of the pool, then the gardens and finally the wide field beyond.  At one side is a sky-lit living room with internal garden and walls of exposed masonry. At the other side is an open kitchen and dining room featuring a wet bar, all overlooking an expansive deck and pool (three distinct water bodies are separated by teak-wood bridges and tree islands). Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThe infinity swimming pool is fully integrated with the villa, dividing the semi-private areas from the private ones. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerA bedroom abuts the pool, with a slit window along the floor that enables the ripples of water to reflect onto the ceiling. All the lower floor bathrooms have in-built sunken bathtubs to enjoy the adjoining courtyard landscapes. The last bedroom features a serene indoor-outdoor bathroom where light and shadow create ever-changing landscapesSave this picture!Floor Plan – Level 2On the upper floor, there is a family room, powder room, top-floor garden, and an exquisite master suite. The latter consists of a bedroom and an open library, with a windowed “sky bridge” separating the bedroom from a walk-in closet and large master bathroom. The views from upstairs consist not only of the open field to the north but also a “Goan jungle view” to the south, replete with red-tiled rooftops of the adjoining village. Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerProject gallerySee allShow lessBanyan Tree Anji / ZSD + CL3 Architects + Design Department of Banyan Tree GroupSelected ProjectsJiaxing Qixing Joyful Rural Complex Exhibition Center / Antao Group · ZANSelected Projects Share 2018 “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAbraham John ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPenha de FrançaIndiaPublished on November 14, 2018Cite: “Villa in the Palms / Abraham John Architects” 14 Nov 2018.

Productivity challenges an issue for 87% of charity decision makers

The need to embed a culture of improvement and skills, alongside technological solutions, to improve productivity within charities is a welcome focus and one which provides much food for thought for fundraising directors and senior leaders across the sector.”The report makes a number of recommendations for improving productivity including:Ensuring committed leadership and an organisational culture centred around the organisation’s charitable objectives.Measuring productivity levels on an ongoing basis by setting up a process to constantly review every area from admin to fundraising, and how they can be improved.Assessing how well different systems work together, identifying opportunities for better integration, with automation and processes in place to ensure multiple software systems integrate.Developing talent by upskilling staff internally, particularly with digital skills, which are transformative at both an organisational and individual level.

She can be reached via 87% of decision makers in mid-sized charities find productivity a challenge that impacts staff, fundraising, and the quality of service for beneficiaries, according to research by the Access Group, released today. Exploring productivity in the not-for-profit sector reveals that 84% believe improving productivity would have a big impact on their organisation, with 82% saying they believed it would mean better quality of services for their beneficiaries. This is above average found by the Access Group across all business sectors of 71% believing that higher productivity would result in better quality service.Respondents to the survey also said that it would lead to more time to focus on key priorities (73%), increased profits or outputs, and more engaged staff (both 66%).Eight out of ten view improving efficiency in their core job as the key area of importance for boosting productivity, with workplace culture, staff training, communication and technology issues identified as some of the biggest challenges.On average, charity employees are spending almost one fifth (16%) of their time on non-core tasks, such as admin, data requests or venue bookings, in order to get their work done – equating to over 7 working weeks in a year.Lack of integration of software systems and processes was also identified as a significant issue: while almost two-thirds (64%) of charity decision makers need to access information and data from other teams and departments daily (above the UK average of 53%), over half (51%) are unable to access it directly themselves, with charity teams often siloed and using a number of separate systems: 38% say that their organisation uses 5 to 10 different software systems, with a third integrated.Simon Baines, Managing Director of The Access Group’s not-for-profit software and service division, said:“Every charity is under increasing pressure, as well as scrutiny to demonstrate efficiency and transparency while achieving more within a restricted funding environment, which means productivity is as much an issue in the not-for-profit sector as it is for any commercial organisation.“It is hugely encouraging then that there is clear appetite for greater productivity and that the benefits of improving it are well recognised. There is a call to action in the findings of this report, particularly in terms of reviewing and assessing where effective changes can be made across an organisation and the positive impact this can have on its culture, its people and ultimately frontline services and beneficiaries.”Commenting on the findings, Dan Fluskey, Head of Policy and External Affairs at the Institute of Fundraising said: Advertisement Productivity challenges an issue for 87% of charity decision makerscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Melanie May | 21 November 2019 | News Meredith Niles, Executive Director of Fundraising and Engagement at Marie Curie UK also commented on the report. She said:“Because we are investing donors’ money to make a positive social impact, charities have a moral imperative to take productivity seriously. As a sector we are achieving great work, but often we end up cutting corners on core systems and processes in the well-intentioned desire to put as much resource as possible into the front line. This report is important because it highlights the false economy of this thinking and I encourage my peers to read it and share it with their executive teams and boards.” Tagged with: productivity Research / statisticslast_img read more

AFP confirms that three foreign journalists were arrested near Ajdabiya

first_img June 24, 2020 Find out more March 22, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 AFP confirms that three foreign journalists were arrested near Ajdabiya News Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is deeply concerned about two Agence France-Presse journalists and a US photographer who, according to information newly obtained by AFP, were arrested by pro-Gaddafi forces near Ajdabiya on 19 March. AFP had not heard from its two reporters since the evening of 18 March.The two AFP journalists are Dave Clark, 38, who is British, and Roberto Schmidt, 45, who has German and Colombian dual nationality. The US photographer who was travelling with them is Joe Raedle, 45, of Getty Images.In a press release today, AFP said a Libyan driver, Mohamed Hamed, told the news agency that on Saturday morning he took the three journalists from Tobruk on the road to Ajdabiya, where Gaddafi loyalists have been fighting eastern rebels. “ A few dozen kilometres from Ajdabiya, they encountered a convoy of military jeeps and transport vehicles. They turned around, but were intercepted by the soldiers who caught up with them and forcibly arrested them, the driver said.”The press release added: “Four soldiers ordered the journalists out of their vehicle at gunpoint. Clark, an experienced foreign correspondent, identified themselves in Arabic as journalists, the driver said. They were then ordered to kneel on the side of the road with their hands on their heads. Other civilians and ambulances arrived on the scene and were controlled by soldiers who arrived in large number, Hamed said. The soldiers then set fire to several vehicles, including that used by the journalists, who were put into a military vehicle and driven away.”The confirmation of their arrest brings the number of journalists currently detained in Libya to seven. Al-Jazeera reported on 19 March that four of its journalists were being held by pro-Gaddafi forces. The four – Mauritanian reporter Ahmed Vall Ould el-Dine, Tunisian reporter Lotfi Messaoudi, Norwegian photographer Ammar Al-Hamdane and British photographer Kamel Ataloua – were arrested near the western town of Zawiya.Reporters Without Borders is also without any news of six Libyan journalists.The press freedom organization is nonetheless reassured to learned that French freelance photographer Stéphane Lehr has reestablished contact with Polaris Images, the photo agency he is currently working for.

A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Residents in Dayton, Ohio, have been left to pick up the pieces after three tornadoes caused widespread damage on Monday.It was reported by ABC News that more than 80,000 people—more than half of Dayton’s reported population—were left without power early Tuesday morning. The storm has caused one confirmed death. “I don’t know that any community that is fully prepared for this type of devastation,” Dayton Assistant Fire Chief Nicholas Hosford said Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”ABC went on to report that there were 51 tornadoes across eight states on Monday—Idaho, Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio—and severe weather remains a threat through Wednesday.Ohio, and some of its larger metros, are no strangers to these storms.A Redfin report in April outlined the metros at most risk for a natural disaster, and three Ohio metros found their names on the list. Cleveland and Columbus, which is located 71 miles from Dayton, had a natural disaster ranking of 23. Cincinnati was close behind with a natural disaster ranking of 24. Cincinnati is located 54 miles from Dayton.According to the Redfin report, Columbus and Cleveland have experienced a combined 138 tornadoes. Cincinnati has 46 on record and Columbus’ 78 tornadoes were tied for second most on the list with Atlanta, Georgia, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.Those impacted by the storm also face the dangers of foreclosure. CoreLogic released a study in May that stated without proper insurance, many homeowners impacted by natural disasters such as tornadoes may be at increased risk of foreclosure. CoreLogic’s 2019 Insurance Coverage Adequacy Report reveals how underinsurance can leave an impact on the lending industry.“The disruption of a family’s regular flow of income and payments, as well as substantial loss in property value, can trigger mortgage default; especially if homeowners are underinsured and cannot afford to rebuild,” said Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic.Disruption to income from natural disasters including wildfires, tornadoes, and hurricanes can lead to mortgage defaults, and CoreLogic notes that delinquency and foreclosures typically spike in an affected area following a disaster.“The financial impact of underinsurance touches everyone; this is especially true after a catastrophic event where widespread property damage can cost billions of dollars,” CoreLogic stated in the report.The Five Star Institute will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners.The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on response, reaction and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes.  Homes natural disaster Ohio 2019-05-28 Mike Albanese The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago May 28, 2019 1,612 Views About Author: Mike Albanese Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more

That will be a countenance to the legal principle & MCI’s letter of July 22.The plea contended that the despite the High Court’s directions passed on May 9, 2017 in (W.P No. 267 of 2017) Dar-Us- Slam Educational Trust Vs. MCI & Ors and Directions ofHigh Court of Delhi in (W.P (C) 5397/2018 & C.M Nos. 20952-53/2018) Dr. Sneha Prakash Vs. Union of India & Ors., the Medical Counselling Committee, Directorate General of Health Sciences has received many resignation requests from joined candidates after completion of Round 2 of Counselling of NEET-PG 2020 examination, which was completed on 16.06.2020.”It has been found that after the final list that has been published, there is a total of 3373 number of AIQ seats which have been vacated after joining, under the NEET-PG 2020, and which are now being reverted to the respective State quota for counselling by the State Government or the authority designated by the State Government. Thus, because of the lapse of AIQ seats, candidates like the Petitioners herein who were genuinely willing to avail the AIQ seats, are being deprived for the reason that the said vacant or lapsed AIQ Seats are being passed on to the States”In this backdrop, the petitioner has contended that those candidates like himself who have been unable to avail the seat shall not be allowed to do so. In light of the pandemic situation, the schedules of PG exams have been altered and caused the results of NEET-PG have been delayed with AIIMS, JIPMER & PGI declaring their results first, he states. “Therefore, this has led to chaos amongst the candidates, who after realizing that they have secured seats in AIIMS, PGI-Chandigarh, and JIPMERPondicherry, have opted to leave their seats secured under the AIQ of the NEET-PG exams. Therefore, a large number of non-reporting/joining or vacant AIQ seats have been created which are now being sought to transfer to state admission committees” he said.Plea states that when the nation is gripped in a pandemic, the need for trained doctors is the need of the hour. In light of the same, it will adversely affect the healthcare in our country if such vacated seats are allowed to lapse, and therefore and it is important that the seats under the AIQ quota in Government Medical Colleges as well as Deemed Universities are filled on the basis of the rankings obtained in the NEET-PG 2020.The plea had been filed by Advocate Adeel Ahmed.Click here to download orderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Widow of Pulse nightclub shooter acquitted on all counts

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ORLANDO, Fla.) — Noor Salman, the wife of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, was declared not guilty on all counts Friday morning.She faced charges of obstruction and providing material support to a terrorist organization. She faced life in prison if convicted.“The family is elated,” said Susan Clary, a family spokeswoman, outside of court after the verdict. “Noor can go home now to her son … resume her life and try to pick up the pieces from two years in jail.”Prosecutors and defense attorneys painted radically different pictures of Salman over the course of the trial: on the one hand, helping her husband prepare for the attack and on the other, an abused woman who “married a monster.”“The family always thought that Noor was the first victim of Omar Mateen,” Clary said Friday.Al Salman, Noor’s uncle, who Clary said has acted as her father figure, was overjoyed at the news.He said Friday was a “Good Friday for everybody. It’s Holy Friday for Muslims and Good Friday for Christians.”“We [are] looking forward to taking my niece and hire a therapist for her,” he added. “I don’t know how she’s going to make up for the last two years.”The trial started two weeks ago in U.S. District Court in Orlando, Florida.The court is about two miles away from the site of the nightclub where Mateen killed 49 people and injured 58 others in the June 12, 2016, attack. At the time, it was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.On Thursday, the jury opted not to take an additional hour to deliberate, instead choosing to come back on Friday with the verdict.One of Noor Salman’s attorneys, Fritz Schellar, said that immediately after the verdict was read, “she was overwhelmed, we were all overwhelmed.”“There’s rejoicing but there’s sorrow because she’s been in prison for over a year, separated from her son,” Schellar said.John Mina, the chief of the Orlando Police Department, released a statement following the verdict, saying he believes in the criminal justice system and is thankful for the hard work of the jurors, attorneys and the FBI involved in the case.“Nothing can erase the pain we all feel about the senseless and brutal murders of 49 of our neighbors, friends, family members and loved ones,” Mina said in the statement.“Our community is strong, and the men and women of the Orlando Police Department stand ready to put themselves in harm’s way to protect our residents and visitors,” he said.However, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said he was “disappointed.”“I am disappointed in the outcome of the trial and know that the victims and/or their families are more disappointed,” Demings said in a statement.“This has been an emotional event for our community and many may feel that justice has not prevailed; however, the system of justice has spoken and we should look to the continued healing for the families and our entire community so that this event will not define us,” he said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

The three most serious of these are work-related asthma,occupational rhinitis and occupational asthma. These arise from various sourcesincluding skin contamination and the inhalation of airborne dust. In 1999 31 bakers in the UK were reported to have contracted occupationalasthma. The clinical features of the disease are that it often develops afteran initial symptom-free period of exposure; episodic lower respiratory symptomsoccur in association with periods at work and it is usually accompanied byrhinitis. Diagnosis is achieved in a five-step process: a history is taken; lungfunction tests are carried out; skin prick tests reveal reaction to a causalagent; blood testing shows if there is a positive IgE; and lastly inhalationtests can be carried out if necessary. Sainsbury’s has initiated a thorough health surveillance programme to preventthe development of occupational asthma and to identify bakery workers whoexhibit symptoms. It has identified a number of workers who have developed the disease andwill be discussing redeployment opportunities with them as well as implementingpreventative measures in the workplace.
