The project, an detached single-family house, begins with three main ideas. First, the low environmental impact. Both in the construction phase and in the use of the house, maximum energy efficiency and minimum environmental impact are sought. The structure of the house is CLT (contralaminated wood) and a dry construction has been chosen, with the use of the most sustainable materials as possible. The house is equipped with an aerothermal system accompanied by solar panels that cool and heat a floor heating system. The air conditioning set is complemented by a system of air renewal with heat recovery that allows to constantly ventilate the interior air without losing the comfort of the interior.Save this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatThe second place bioclimatic functioning. The site offers the building very good solar capture throughout the day, hence the project tries to make the most of solar collection and demand minimum installed air conditioning systems. The East, West and North facades are very hermetic, while the South facade is the one with a different character. In it the sun is captured with large openings, which in the coldest months allow the entry of solar rays to almost half the house. For the hot months this facade has a system of shutters on the first floor and a large pergola of 3m deep with retractable cover that allows to protect from the solar rays according to the time of year.Save this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatFinally, it is a project that looks after the comfort of users over time. Juan and Assumpta wanted a house that responded to their current situation, where they live with their teenage son and a grandmother, but understand that this situation is temporary in the mid term. So for them, who are the main users, the design allows them to have a comfortable, spacious, adapted, single-storey house and very related to the outside. The ground floor responds to the will of Juan and Assumpta to form a house in itself, a concatenation of very open spaces, which could work without doors where there is a day area turned towards the garden and is gaining privacy as you reach the area of ​​the rooms. On the contrary, the first floor can operate independently. It consists of two rooms with bathroom that allow in the future to be enabled as an independent area by the son, only changing the bathroom for a kitchen.Save this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatEn ella recae la captación de la casa con grandes aberturas, que en los meses más fríos permiten la entrada de rayos solares hasta casi media casa.

Juan y Assumpta quieren una casa que responda a su situación actual, donde conviven con su hijo adolescente y la abuela, pero entienden que esta situación es temporal a medio plazo. Así pues para ellos que son los principales usuarios les permita tener una vivienda cómoda, amplia, adaptada, de una sola planta y muy relacionada con el exterior.Save this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatLa planta baja responde a las voluntad de Juan y Assumpta de formar una vivienda en sí misma, una concatenación de espacios muy abiertos, que podría funcionar sin puertas donde hay una zona de día volcada hacia el jardín y se va ganando con privacidad en medida que se llega a la zona de las habitaciones. Por el contrario la planta primera puede funcionar de forma independiente. Consta de dos habitaciones con baño que permita en un futuro habilitarse como zona independiente por el hijo, sólo cambiando el baño adaptado para una office / cocina.Save this picture!© Lacol / House HabitatProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse Lessans / McGonigle McGrathSelected ProjectsMontes Housing / Héctor SolórzanoSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918632/canovas-cassart-house-laboqueria Clipboard Area:  2798 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Spainlast_img read more

R. Anitha was hearing a criminal miscellaneous case which was filed under Section 482 Cr.P.C. to quash Charge-sheet in C.C.No.1471/2017 of the Judicial First Class Magistrate Court-I, Kasargode against the Petitioner/Accused (Gangandharan Nair).Significantly, the Petitioner was engaged in spraying Endosulfan pesticide mainly used for the control of Tea Mosquitoes (during his term of employment with Plantation Corporation of Kerala Ltd.). The petitioner retired from employment in the year 2014.[BRIEF NOTE: It may be noted that till the year 2011, Endosulfan pesticide was used extensively on crops like paddy, fruits, cashew, cotton, tea, and others in the State of Kerala.However, in 2011, observing that Right to life is a paramount consideration and taking into consideration its harmful effects, the Supreme Court banned the manufacture, sale and use of pesticide endosulfan in the country.The health effects of the chemical include neurotoxicity, late sexual maturity, physical deformities, poisoning, among others. People, especially newborns have suffered deformities, health complications and loss of family members due to exposure to the agrochemical.Later on, in the year 2017, the Supreme Court directed the Kerala government to disburse Rs 500 crore as compensation for over 5,000 persons who suffered from various deformities, health complications and lost family members after using Endosulfan pesticides in the state.]Facts of the CaseOn 30.03.2017, a meeting was convened in the compound of Collectorate, Kasargode to distribute compensation to the Endosulfan affected victims by the Chief Minister.According to the petitioner, to bring the issue of malpractice in the preparation of list and fake claims to the direct notice of the Chief Minister as a common-man he displayed a placard poster.The writings on the Placard (in Malayam Language) stated that:-Endosulfan issue,There are no such health issues in Kasargod districtStop the plundering of the state treasury in the name of endosulfanPublish the report of Kasargod vigilance departmentFind out the truth by conducting an impartial investigationSatyameva JayatheThe Petitioner contended that by erecting the placard with the writings referred above, the petitioner/accused only wanted to show his protest in distributing the compensation to non-deserving persons which would affect the public exchequer and the act of the accused is a right guaranteed under the Constitution of India and hence the accused is entitled to protection under Article 19 of the Constitution of India.According to the Public Prosecutor, the writings in the placard itself confirm that the offence under Section 153 IPC and also Section 2 of the Kerala Prevention of Disturbances of Public Meetings Act, 1961 are attracted.He also contended that at this stage, this Court is to be satisfied only about a prima facie case and whether any offence as alleged has been made out.He contended that on a mere glance through the FIR and the Final Report, this Court can very well be satisfied of the prima facie case in favour of the respondent/State.Court’s AnalysisThe Court noted that as per the Apex Court’s judgment in W.P.(C)No.213/2011, directions were given to the State Government to formulate a scheme for providing compensation to the victims of the use of Endosulfan in the State.In this context, the Court noted,”When the Apex Court had made a finding and directed the State Government to formulate a scheme for providing compensation to the victims of the use of Endosulfan. It goes without saying that it is the law of the land. So, the writings in the placard, that there is no menace related to the use of endosulfan in Kasargode District, appear as prima facie illegal.”The Court noted that the placard with the abovesaid writings had been erected by the Petitioner in a meeting held at the collectorate, Kasargode and the Chief Minister was speaking on the occasion.So the question before the Court was – whether the conduct of the petitioner in such an event would attract the offence under Section 153 IPC prima facie.The Court observed that on close scrutiny of Section 153 IPC, it could be gathered that whoever malignantly or wantonly does any act, which is illegal and give provocation to any person intending or knowing it to be likely that such provocation would cause the offence of rioting to be committed; the offence would be attracted in two ways:(1) If the offence of rioting is committed in consequence of such provocation, and(2) If the offence of the rioting is not committed.While examining the words ‘Malignantly’ and ‘Wantonly’, the Court referred to the Ratanlal & Dhirajlal’s Commentaries on the IPC 33rd Edition and concluded that any unlawful act done intentionally without just cause or excuse would come within the purview of the malignant act.Further, the Court said that the word ‘wantonly’ is far wider and having a more comprehensive application than is implied by the word malignantly. So any reckless or thoughtless act without any regard for right or consequences would amount to a wanton act.The Court further observed that in this case, what has been done by the petitioner is the erection of a placard in a public meeting where Chief Minister of the State was speaking in connection with the distribution of compensation to the victims of Endosulfan.So naturally, the Court said, the participants in the meeting would be the victims of endosulfan who would have come in the list prepared by the authorities. Probably, some persons in the list of beneficiaries may not be deserving persons. But it cannot be forgotten that there would be persons who are eligible also would be participating in the meeting.In this context, the Court said,”So what would be their feeling on seeing such a placard with writing that there is no such menace of Endosulphan in Kasargode district? So the act of the petitioner would prima facie amounts to a reckless or thoughtless act without any regard for the consequence. The possibility of the genuine victims of Endosulphan getting provoked by seeing the placard cannot be ruled out prima facie.”Further, examining Section 2 of the Kerala Prevention of Disturbances of Public Meetings Act, 1961, the Court said that if anybody acts in a disorderly manner at a public meeting for the purpose of preventing the transaction of the business for which the meeting was called, the offence under Section 2 would be attracted.So, the Court opined, when the petitioner displays a placard containing the writings quoted above in a meeting held for distribution of compensation to the victims of endosulfan and that too at the time when the Chief Minister is making a speech in connection with the function, there won’t be any doubt that the act of the petitioner/accused would cause confusion or disturbances of the normal working of mind of the victims who were assembled there prima facie.Lastly, the Court also stated,”Section 153 IPC and Section 2 of Kerala Prevention of Disturbances of Public Meetings Act, 1961 expressly prohibit certain acts in a public meeting by any citizen. So it will come under the reasonable restriction on the exercise of the right guaranteed under Article 19(1)(a).”In the result, Crl.M.C. was found to be devoid of any merit and accordingly, it was dismissed.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Suspect in Odessa mass shooting made ‘rambling’ calls to police, FBI before rampage: Officials

first_imgABC News(ODESSA, Texas) — The alleged gunman who killed seven people and injured more than 20 in Odessa and Midland in western Texas on Saturday called the police and an FBI tip line, making “rambling statements” about being fired by his employer before he went on his drive-by mass shooting rampage, police said on Monday.Seth Aaron Ator, 36, was terminated from his job at the Journey Oilfield Service in Odessa on Saturday morning, just hours before he allegedly went on a killing spree and just minutes before he contacted law enforcement to complain about his employer, Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said at a news conference.“Right after that firing, he called Odessa Police Department’s 911, and so did his employer,” Gerke said. “And basically they were complaining on each other because they had a disagreement over the firing.”During the calls to the 911 center and a subsequent call to the FBI National Tip Line, Ator never made any threats of violence, Gerke said.Christopher Combs, special agent in charge of the FBI field office in San Antonio, described the calls Ator made to law enforcement as the “rambling and incoherent” gibberish of someone in “great mental distress.”“Frankly, the dispatchers, the call takers, couldn’t figure out what he was talking about,” Combs said.Combs said investigators do not believe being dismissed from his job prompted Ator to allegedly commit the massacre.“He showed up to work in a very distressed mental state. So it’s not because he got fired,” Combs said. “This did not happen because he was fired. When he showed up to work he was already enraged.”Combs said the condition of Ator’s Odessa home when investigators searched it on Saturday also indicated the person who lived there was in the throes of mental instability.“I can tell you the conditions reflect what we believe his mental state was going into this,” Combs said. “He was on a long spiral of going down. He didn’t wake up Saturday morning and walk into his company and then it happened. He went into that company in trouble. He’s probably been in trouble for a while.”The shootings unfolded at 3:15 p.m. local time on Saturday, about 15 minutes after Ator called the FBI’s National Tip Line, Combs said.The first victim in the rampage was a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper who pulled the suspect over for failing signal before making a turn, Gerke said. As the trooper approached the car, Ator allegedly opened fire with an AR-type assault rifle, wounding the trooper, he said.Gerke said the trooper had no prior knowledge of the phone calls Ator made to law enforcement before pulling the suspect over.Ator then allegedly drove around in his vehicle randomly firing at victims in 20 different locations, including a car dealership and outside a movie theater, police said.The victims killed ranged in age from 15 to 57.One of the victims was Mary Granado, a 29-year-old U.S. Postal Service worker, who Ator allegedly shot to death during a carjacking, Gerke said.The suspect allegedly ditched his car and stole Granado’s postal service van after killing her, Gerke said. He continued driving around the Odessa area, firing at people at random, the chief said.The alleged killer then sped toward the Cinergy center, a local entertainment complex that includes a cineplex and a laser-tag range.Gerke said the carnage could have been much worse had the police not killed Ator before he got inside a crowded movie theater.A cellphone video taken by a witness showed the suspect speeding toward a police roadblock outside the theater before a police officer in a marked SUV rammed the stolen postal van on the driver’s side, causing it to spin out and stop. Within seconds, police opened fire on the van, killing the driver inside, Gerke said.Gerke said the motive for the shooting may never be known because Ator is no longer alive to answer questions.Investigators are also trying to determine how Ator obtained the AR-type weapon he used in the rampage.Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott posted a message on Twitter on Monday saying Ator not only had a criminal record, but he had also once failed a background check when he tried to purchase a gun.“He didn’t go thru a background check for the gun he used in Odessa,” Abbott tweeted. “We must keep guns out of criminals’ hands.”According to online records in the Texas Department of Public Safety database, Ator did have a minor criminal history, as first reported Monday by the Austin American-Statesman newspaper.The online records show that Ator was arrested on Aug. 1, 2001, for evading arrest and criminal trespass in McLennan County, Texas, when he was 18.Ator pleaded guilty to the two misdemeanor charges and was sentenced to 24 months of court probation, according to the records.Gerke said Odessa police also had several contacts with Ator for minor offenses, but added that wouldn’t have prevented him from obtaining a license for a gun.John Wester, a special agent for the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, confirmed on Monday that Ator did fail a firearms background check.“The background check was run through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The NIC system did work. He applied to get a gun. He was denied a gun,” said Wester, who declined to say why Ator was rejected.He said the investigation into how Ator got the weapon he allegedly used in the massacre remains under investigation.Gerke also said that overnight, police learned about another victim wounded in the rampage, bringing the number of people injured to 23.“It was a 70-year-old female who had been struck by shrapnel while in her car,” Gerke said. “She took herself to the hospital and she was treated and released. So that’s good news.”The mass shooting came exactly four weeks after 22 people were gunned down at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and another nine people killed the next day by another gunman in Dayton, Ohio.The Odessa-Midland rampage was the fifth high-profile mass shooting in Texas since September 2017 that have left a combined 72 people dead and 79 wounded.The shooting also came a day before eight new laws that ease restrictions on guns went into the effect in Texas, including prohibiting landlords from banning tenants from having guns in their apartments and allowing people licensed to carry concealed weapons to have firearms in churches and other places of worship.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Reproductive patterns in the Antarctic brachiopod Liothyrella uva

first_imgThe reproductive cycle of the Antarctic articulate brachiopod Liothyrella uva (Broderip, 1833) is described from monthly samples collected between September 1985 and July 1987 from a population at Signy Island, Antarctica. Spermatogenesis and oogenesis are described for the first time in this species. Surface dried-tissue masses for a standard individual (41 mm shell length) were calculated for the digestive diverticula, gut, lophophore and gonad from monthly dissections of 15 brachiopods. Seasonal patterns, with summer peaks, were observed in the digestive diverticula and gut. The lophophore and gonad masses did not exhibit seasonal trends. Females showed a sharp decrease in proportion of large oocytes between October and November in 1986, suggesting spawning during this period. There was no similar decrease during the same period in 1985. Mean percent spermatozoa measurements revealed a large increase in November 1985 and a rapid decline in December 1985. This suggested a large spawning event for males in 1985 which was not repeated the following year. These data indicate large inter-annual differences in reproductive activity as well as differences between males and females. They also suggest the possibility of sperm storage by females. Brood characteristics were also highly variable. The smallest brooding female was 31.5 mm in length. Some females brooded more than one developmental stage simultaneously, and variation in brood size (numbers of embryos or larvae held in the lophophore) and brood composition between individuals was high. All samples collected throughout the 2 yr period contained some females with broods. The data suggest that the reproductive strategy of L. uva is highly plastic, and that there may be three reproductive periodicities on seasonal, annual and inter-annual time scales.last_img read more

Landmark property fraud appeal case decision rocks conveyancing world

first_imgSolicitors acting for vendors can no longer hope to pin the blame for a property fraud on other parties in the sale, the Court of Appeal has indicated in a decision that will have far-reaching effects on the whole property industry.This follows a landmark decision yesterday that puts to rest one of the most complicated property law cases in recent years, and which has also highlighted how easy it can be for fraudsters to con millions of pounds from buyers.The two negligence cases, which concerned frauds completed in 2013 and 2014, were originally brought by unrelated London developers ripped off by different criminals posing as the vendors of properties they did not own.Yesterday’s decision by the three judges in the Court of Appeal clarifies how much vendors’ solicitors are liable in cases like this, and is likely to trigger significant reform of the conveyancing process by the Law Society. During the appeal process both vendors’ solicitors were highlighted by the judges for their weak identity checks.“We can almost hear the collective sigh of relief of those involved in acting for purchasers in conveyancing transactions. Those acting for sellers though, not unreasonably, need to make sure they carry out the proper identity checks,” says Catherine Penny at legal firm Stevens & Bolton.“Concerned about the impact the first instance judgment would have on the profession and in particular those acting for purchasers, the Law Society intervened and provided written submissions to the Court of Appeal.“That the obligation should lie on the side of the fraudulent sellers’ solicitors to check their clients’ identity seems fairer than it being for the innocent purchaser’s solicitors, but what happened to ‘buyer beware’? Sellers’ solicitors will certainly need to be more vigilant in their identify checks going forward.”Property fraudIn the first case, P&P Properties sought to get the £1.03 million it paid for a fraudulently-sold property at 52 Brackenbury Road, Hammersmith (pictured above, right), from Owen White and Catlin, the solicitor instructed by the fake vendor, and the selling agent, Winkworth.In the second case, developer Dreamvar pinned its hopes on recouping the £1.1 million it paid for a fraudulently-sold property in Earls Court (pictured above, left) from its own solicitor, Mishcon De Reya, rather than the vendor’s legal firm Mary Monson Solicitors.The agent involved in this case was Douglas & Gordon, but no claim was made against it and the firm has not been involved in any of the litigation.In the original court cases both developers attempted to sue their chosen parties for negligence but failed, and subsequently appealed.This includes Winkworth, which, in the original trial, had the claim against it dismissed although its request for costs was reduced by 10% for its role in the fraud. This has now been overturned.Yesterday lead judge Lord Justice Patten allowed P&P’s appeal against the original judge’s finding that there was no breach of trust but dismissed its claim that there had been a breach of warranty of authority.In the Dreamvar case he allowed the appeal by Mishcon De Reya and Dreamvar that there was no breach of trust by the vendor’s solicitor but refused to grant relief to Mishcon De Reya.Read the full judgement.Read our guest blog by leading solicitor Peter Rodd on what agents need to do to prevent fraud.mischcon da reya P&P properties Mary Monson solicitors property fraud douglas and gordon dreamvar May 16, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

That’s the largest total of repeat honorees in the history of the All-Area team.For example, last year, there were only five repeat honorees, so it shows how many were able to duplicate their excellence for a second straight year.Also, since the abolishment of the Hudson County Interscholastic Athletic League for football, with everyone joining the 119-team North Jersey Super Football Conference this fall, there will not be another All-County team selected in Hudson County.So this is it.Let’s give credit to the 13 athletes who grace the Reporter All-Area team for a second time. They are Johnathan Lewis, Ben Petrula, Jayson and Justin Ademilola, Joe Henry and Shayne Simon of St. Peter’s Prep; Harrison Fernandez of Union City, Nolan Burns of Snyder, Wilden Germain of Hoboken, Jalen Scott and James Burgess of Lincoln, Khashawn Decker of Hudson Catholic and Rafael Ponce de Leon of North Bergen.Those athletes deserve a world of credit for being able to maintain their level of excellence.The Hudson Reporter Offensive Player of the Year and Most Valuable Player honoree is Johnathan Lewis of St. Peter’s Prep.Lewis earned the Offensive Player of the Year honors last year as well, but adds the county’s MVP title to his resume this season after rushing for 1,084 yards and scoring 21 touchdowns, while passing for 1,544 yards and 10 touchdowns.Lewis’ brilliance helped to carry the Marauders to the NJSIAA Non-Public Group 4 title game against Paramus Catholic in MetLife Stadium, where he electrified the crowd with a sensational 69-yard touchdown run. He also engineered two late scoring drives, but the Marauders came up short in a 33-28 setback. Lewis is headed to Rutgers in the fall.The Hudson Reporter Defensive Player of the Year honors go to Harrison Fernandez of Union City, who really didn’t have a true position on defense. He was a hybrid between a linebacker and a free safety, but he was literally all over the field for the Soaring Eagles, making play after play. Fernandez registered 64 tackles and collected three interceptions, but he was an impact player practically on every snap. Hernandez was also the Soaring Eagles’ starting quarterback, where he rushed for nearly 700 yards and scored 15 touchdowns while passing for 400 more and five more TDs.The Hudson Reporter Coach of the Year is Jason Acerra of Bayonne, who in his first season guided the Bees to the NJSIAA North Jersey Section 2, Group V playoffs. – Jim HagueJim Hague can be reached via e-mail at [email protected] OFFENSE Defensive End-Andrew Duncan, SnyderDefensive End-Alex Lozano, LincolnDefensive End-Eddie Wilson, HobokenDefensive End-Jalen Scott, LincolnDefensive Tackle-Jayson Ademilola, St. Peter’s PrepDefensive Tackle-James Mitchell, St. AnthonyDefensive Tackle-Rafael Ponce de Leon, North BergenDefensive Tackle-Justin Ademilola, St. Peter’s PrepLinebacker-Zamir Mickens, St. Peter’s PrepLinebacker-Damien Abrams.
