The desire for poetic normalityThe longish, seemingly composed building with a classic ridged roof already anticipates a farming building. It is no surprise in such an area where agriculture defines the landscape. Sheds and barns are widely scattered. The few, but precisely placed and well-proportioned openings in extraordinary formats are only noticed on a second glance. The reluctance has its reason: the inherited lot has been family-owned since generations. This circum- stance defines a design that focusses on the appropriateness rather than the maximization of the possibilities as a main aim.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe old farming house in Doren Kaltschmieden has been disrupted through several insensitive alterations throughout the years and has suffered a lot through this. The very bad building fabric – in the foundations as well as in the timber construction contributed to this. This is how the new building goes into dialog with the present topography and the village structure. A soul mate body even? Nevertheless the main aim of the design was a building to interweave the soul of the old house with the place.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe exact placement of the building, even if it seems unspectacular, is supposed to reactivate a traditional buil- ding form- without falling into the abyss of a superficial folk like architecture. One could have done a lot wrong if one would have followed the typology of a standard settler house. It seemed important that the place would be refilled by a similar big and compact capacity and to avail oneself with the functional virtues of the Bregen- zerwald house.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterThe fewer elements a building calls for, the graver becomes the decision for the ones that are inevitable. This is how many functional rooms like living, garage, attic and terrace melt into a compact volume under a homoge- nous board skin with only one large-sized opening into each of the cardinal directions.
Concrete in form of a big table on the inside of the house, serves as a heat repository medium and supports in its centre functions like a big wood-burning fireplace oven.Save this picture!SectionThe complete concept tries to accommodate all the users’ contentment in its simple volume, who live very indi- vidualistic mainly with collected and predominantly self-made things. The universal context between nature, region, material, craftsmanship and collectors passion define the architecture of the house.Save this picture!© Adolf BereuterProject gallerySee allShow lessThe 9 Most Controversial Buildings of All TimeArticlesPinterest Round Up of Our Favorite Nap Time RetreatsArticles Share CopyAbout this officeBernardo Bader ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBregenz DistrictHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAustriaPublished on November 28, 2014Cite: “Haus Kaltschmieden / Bernardo Bader Architects” 28 Nov 2014.

New fast.MAP guide aims to help charities maximise legacy fundraising

first_img Melanie May | 1 September 2017 | News Fast.MAP bas published a guide for charities on maximising legacy fundraising by better understanding how to inspire people to leave a gift in their Will.Fast.MAP partnered with Freestyle Marketing to develop A Guide to Maximising Legacy Fundraising Consideration. It aims to help charities increase their income from legacies by understanding the major motivations and barriers to leaving gifts in Wills, how propensity to give is affected by sector, audience, and the charity itself, and how to use this data to better communicate with those more likely to consider leaving a legacy.In his foreword to the guide, David Cole, Managing Director of fast.MAP says:“Whilst legacy fundraising presents a huge opportunity it is notoriously difficult to measure. The length of time that an engaged donor can take to leave a legacy and the relatively limited access to performance data are the main causes of this measurement deficiency. Therefore, an understanding of how specific donors to specific charities are leaving a legacy is vital to justify and direct precious marketing budgets.“This new industry measurement system defines motivators and barriers for donors to different casual sectors and will also provide tracking to plot future progress. The guide’s aim is to explain how the performance of legacy marketing can be improved through this benchmark measurement.”Fast.MAP’s guide is available at £50 + VAT. It is available free to Institute of Fundraising and Remember A Charity members. UK Fundraising readers can also download it for free using the code MAXLEGUKF.

Narayana Pisharadi observed that the Appellate Court, before granting such liberty to withdraw a suit has to consider whether any right had accrued in favour of the defendant by the dismissal of the suits by the trial court and by granting permission to withdraw from the suits, whether the defendant would be deprived of any such right? The court was considering a petition challenging an order passed by a first appellate court, granting permission to the plaintiff to withdraw the two suits instituted by him with liberty to file fresh suit/suits on the same subject matter.Order XXIII Rule 1(1) of the Code of Civil Procedure provides that, at any time after the institution of a suit, the plaintiff may as against all or any of the defendants abandon his suit or abandon a part of his claim. Rule 1(3) states that, where the Court is satisfied, — (a) that a suit must fail by reason of some formal defect, or (b) that there are sufficient grounds for allowing the plaintiff to institute a fresh suit for the subject matter of a suit or part of a claim, it may, on such terms as it thinks fit, grant the plaintiff permission to withdraw from such suit or such part of the claim with liberty to institute a fresh suit in respect of the subject-matter of such suit or such part of the claim. Interpreting these provisions, the court made following observations:A mere withdrawal of the suit, without asking anything more, can always be permitted.”The plaintiff can abandon a suit or a part of his claim as a matter of right without the permission of the court. The plaintiff need not obtain any permission from the Court to abandon the suit. He has right to file an application to abandon his suit or part thereof at any time after its filing. In such a case, he will be precluded from suing again on the same cause of action. A defendant cannot compel the plaintiff to proceed with the suit. When the plaintiff files an application under sub-rule (1) of Rule 1 of Order XXIII of the Code and prays for permission to withdraw the suit, whether in full or part, he is always at liberty to do so and in such case, the defendant has no right to raise any objection to such prayer being made by the plaintiff except to ask for payment of costs. The reason is that while making a prayer to withdraw the suit under sub-rule (1) of Rule 1 of Order XXIII of the Code, the plaintiff does not ask for any leave to file a fresh suit on the same subject matter. A mere withdrawal of the suit, without asking anything more, can always be permitted.”No requirement that “sufficient ground” pleaded by the plaintiff for seeking permission to withdraw the suit with liberty to institute fresh suit shall be analogous to a formal defecThe court added that if the plaintiff wants to withdraw from the suit and institute a fresh suit on the same subject matter, he has to seek and obtain permission from the court. The court also considered the question whether “sufficient grounds” mentioned in clause (b) of sub-rule (3) of Rule 1 of Order XXIII of the Code shall be interpreted to mean grounds analogous to a formal defect or not?”The expression “sufficient grounds” occurring in clause (b) of Rule 1(3) of Order XXIII of the Code is not to be read ejusdem generis with the expression “formal defect” occurring in clause (a). There is no requirement that “sufficient ground” pleaded by the plaintiff for seeking permission to withdraw the suit with liberty to institute fresh suit shall be analogous to a formal defect. There can be no reason as to why the import and amplitude of the expression “sufficient grounds” in clause (b) of Rule 1(3) of Order XXIII of the Code should suffer any unwarranted confinement.There is restriction on the right to withdraw from the suit at the appellate stageThe court also observed that when an application for withdrawal of suit is filed at the appellate stage, the court has to take into consideration some other matters also.Therefore, it is now well-settled that there is restriction on the right to withdraw from the suit at the appellate stage. The plaintiff has no absolute right, at the appellate stage, to withdraw from the suit. An application made at the appellate stage to withdraw the suit cannot be allowed by the court if granting such permission would have the effect of depriving or destroying or nullifying or annulling any right which has come to be vested with the defendant under the decree. The court shall keep in mind the fact that, when permission is granted to withdraw from the suit with liberty to file a fresh suit, the parties are placed in the same position as they would have been, had the suit not been instituted at all.”In this case, the court noted, the appellate court has not considered whether any right had accrued in favour of the defendant by the dismissal of the suits by the trial court and by granting permission to withdraw from the suits, whether the defendant would be deprived of any such right. The court referred to Apex Court judgments in Rathinavel Chettiar v. Sivaraman : (1999) 4 SCC 89 and Bhoopathy v. Kokila : AIR 2000 SC 2132.  The court thus remanded the matter to the appellate court for fresh consideration of the applications.Case name: SABU ISSAC vs. ANTONY CHACKOCase no.: O.P(C) No.123 of 2020 Coram: JUSTICE R.

Undocumented immigrant charged with murdering shipmate on fishing boat off Massachusetts

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(BOSTON) — Authorities in Massachusetts have charged an undocumented immigrant with murder after he allegedly stabbed three fellow crew members, one fatally, on a fishing boat 55 miles off the coast.The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts announced the charges on Monday, one day after they say Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez got into a fight on the ship he was working on, the Captain Billy Haver, and three people were injured. One of those members of the crew died.The 27-year-old Vazquez, a native of Mexico, was in the country illegally, according to the Department of Justice.Since the crime took place within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States it is considered a federal case. Vazquez was charged with one count of murder and one count of attempted murder.The fishing boat, which has its home port in Virginia, was near Nantucket when one of seven crew members said he was assaulted by Vazquez with a hammer and a knife, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The crew member said he saw a fellow shipmate was already lying on the deck badly bleeding. Vazquez then allegedly attacked a third crew member.Vazquez climbed the ship’s mast before other crew members finally captured him, the attorney’s office said.The captain issued a distress call, answered by the German cruise ship, Mein Schiff 6, authorities said.The first two crew members were treated by the cruise ship’s doctor, with one being pronounced dead.Lindsay McDannold, who is married to Vazquez’s father but in the process of divorce, criticized the suspect in an interview with Boston ABC affiliate WCVB.Vazquez was charged with abduction by force, intimidation, or deception after being arrested in Newport News, Virginia, on March 9 for what McDannold says was an attack on her daughter. He was released on bond, according to federal authorities.“In March, he assaulted her and strangled her and held her against her will,” McDannold said. “I think it’s a travesty. I think the court system failed. I think they should do a better job in terms of policing these people when they come in.”Vazquez faces life in prison if convicted of murder.He will then be subject to deportation after serving any potential sentence.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Florida man originally charged with gun crime also charged with hate crime

first_imgBroward County Jail(MIAMI) — A Florida man has been charged with a hate crime after allegedly yelling racial slurs and waving a gun at a group of black protesters.Mark Bartlett, who is white, originally was charged only with carrying a concealed firearm after he allegedly pulled a gun on protesters blocking a Miami street as part of a demonstration on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. But prosecutors announced additional charges on Tuesday, citing the completion of final interviews and witness statements.Bartlett, 51, now faces three counts of aggravated assault with prejudice, enhanced to a second-degree felony; one count of improper exhibition of a firearm, enhanced to a third-degree felony; and one count of carrying a concealed firearm, a third-degree felony, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said in a statement on Tuesday.He’s scheduled to be arraigned on the new charges Wednesday.Video circulated on social media last month showed Bartlett wielding a handgun and yelling the N-word repeatedly.“Get in front of my car, you f—ing piece of s—. N—— suck,” the man yelled from the window of his black SUV. He continued to swear and yell racial slurs as he exited his vehicle, brandishing his gun and scattering protesters.One of the teens involved in the incident said Bartlett threatened him before the video was filmed.“He pointed the gun at me first [from] inside his car. He told me to come to the car. I said, ‘No, sir. No, sir. I’m not coming,’” 18-year-old Deante Joseph told ABC affiliate WPLG-TV last month. “He said, ‘Black n—-r. You black n—-r. Get away from my car. Get away from my car.’ We were holding up signs for housing. That’s all we were doing.”Bartlett later told police that he had a gun at the time, but said he only pulled it out to protect his girlfriend, who was arguing with one of the teens.“All I see is 15 people running across the street toward my girlfriend — over the median, toward my girlfriend,” he told WPLG. “My first reaction is, I have a gun on me. Whether I have a gun on me or not, I’m running to see and to protect my family. I had a gun though. It wasn’t loaded. I ran out there. You can see I never pointed it. I never threatened anybody. I just needed it in case something were to happen.”Five of the protesters have since filed a lawsuit against Bartlett and his girlfriend, whom he said he was defending at the time, seeking damages for pain and suffering.Bartlett’s attorneys, Jayne Weintraub and Jonathan Etra, said the new charges were the result of political pressure, according to told WPLG.“We are disappointed the State Attorney has succumbed to the political pressure rather than obeying the tenets of the law,” the pair said in a statement. “Clearly this mob of people who were commandeering traffic, and taunting passengers, while wearing masks and gloves, were not peacefully protesting — they were not peacefully doing anything. They were committing multiple crimes for which the State Attorney is not holding them accountable.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

The deep-sea copepod fauna of the Southern Ocean: patterns and processes

first_imgIn recent years, much attention has been paid to the Antarctic epipelagic fauna, as a result of the desire to increase our knowledge of ecosystem function and resource management. Unfortunately, our understanding of the polar pelagic deep-sea has not progressed as fast, and in common with many other parts of the world’s deep ocean, knowledge is still fragmentary. As yet, we have an incomplete but evolving knowledge of species presence and distribution, but very little idea of how the extreme seasonality seen in the Southern Ocean might influence the deep-water fauna. An examination is made of species distribution and diversity, in relation to the latitudinal cline seen in many benthic groups, and the historical perspective offered by changing circulation patterns and sea temperature through geological time. Although a number of important frontal systems are found within the circumpolar Southern Ocean, the boundary is marked by the Sub-Tropical Convergence, which appears to be the major biogeographic boundary between it and surrounding provinces. Evidence for seasonality in various families is reviewed in light of what we know and can infer about their biology and particularly in respect of their bathymetric distribution, which in some groups appears to change with latitude.last_img read more
