Barwon Heads is in a period of significant change. Heritage overlays currently protect older fishing shacks whilst the less significant fabric of the seaside town is progressively being redeveloped. Architecture is now significantly contributing to the evolution of this small coastal township, and in this case a young family engaged us to design their new permanent residence which would replace a dilapidated 1950’s two storey house that was beyond repair. Wanted or not, fame was brought upon the township in the past decade as a result of ABC’s Sea Change series and both the town and its eclectic personalities have been subconsciously divided into morphing factions forever debating the merits associated with progress or change. Save this picture!© John Gollings PhotographyThe rise and rise of Architecture is met with similar resistance to a new bridge in this community. Many are opinionated about its impact on the changing face of the town and it is with some hesitation that clients take on contemporary architectural projects, fearing an uprising of resistance that might lead to being burnt on the cross. Our clients were locals rather than recent “sea-changers” and they were totally committed to challenging the dark force behind the somewhat seasonally influenced Silver Haired Resistance. Save this picture!© John Gollings PhotographyThe Hippy and the Yuppy, madly in love with three young children and an open brief….a new two storey house on an expansive site which was to be their permanent residence. Their requests extended to a “green” house that would appropriately contribute to the townships evolving contemporary character. An unusual and somewhat humorous presentation was the desired inclusion of a planetarium which “would be kind of cool, so we can lie on our backs and stare at the stars… yeah?”. Save this picture!© John Gollings PhotographyIn response to this half-joked demand, we immediately engaged in the exploration of circular forms as a loose reference to the traditional star gazer. The brief was challenged by the inherent constraints of the pure circle and the design concepts eventually evolved to become a series of sprawling spaces nestled under a primarily circular form. The sculptural form of building appears to have emerged as part landscape, part streetscape. The front fence competes with the boundary condition, folding and thrusting itself back onto the site to become part of the skin, wrapping the building in a protective layer and then returning to ground to re-engage with the rear fence ….perhaps like a constrictor embracing its silver haired prey. Save this picture!ground floor planThe battened skin provides important solar protection to glazed windows and provides necessary privacy to private spaces in the upper form. Further ESD strategies include Solar Hot water Systems, Solar Pool Heating, Rainwater retention and harvesting for toilet, garden and washing machine use, high performance double glazing and under floor heating. Air-conditioning systems were not required on the basis that the house achieved a 7.5 star energy rating.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Miller Hull Partnership Expands to San DiegoArticlesShenzhen Cultural Complex / MecanooArticles Share “COPY” Australia Save this picture!© John Gollings Photography+ 15 Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeJackson Clements BurrowsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesAustraliaPublished on May 22, 2011Cite: “Henley Street House / Jackson Clements Burrows” 22 May 2011.

Along with rapid urban development in Indonesia, urban population growth is progressively increased. It has an impact on the needs of facilities supporting the urban activities for its citizens, one of which is residence. The consequences of meeting these needs compel the government and housing developers to provide a residential plot system.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThis plot system is addressed with the concept of growing house, that both the owner and the occupants have an opportunity to develop their own house. The concept of a growing house (rumah tumbuh) or multistep development house become a breath of fresh air of a home for couples or families in urban areas, in addressing the basic needs of the housing or residence.Save this picture!© Mario Wibowo & George TimothyThe growing house is a concept of developing a house with several stages within undefined periods depending on social, economic, and environmental conditions. The concept of growing house tends not to destroy the existing building as it has the outlook that the house is a Living monument.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoRumah Gerbong is one example of well-recorded growing houses in the development of urban society, in its social, environmental, and economic status. The term of Rumah Gerbong (Gerbong = railway coach) is adopted from the final typology of the extended building.Save this picture!© Mario Wibowo & George TimothyJust as the typical growing house, Rumah Gerbong also undergo various kinds of evolution, in this case there are 2 evolved things alongside in the growing house. First is evolution of form in physical, aesthetics and function; the second is evolution of social, economic and environmental status, of which this point greatly influences physical evolution.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoBeginning story (House for Live)The embryo of Rumah Gerbong began in 2000 with the land area of 90m2 and building area of 36m2 located in Bintaro, a development area by one of the area developer in Indonesia. As for young and new family in an underdevelopment environment, homeowner purchases house for shelter, with mostly inadequate capacity for couples, with their hardly considerable needs and desires.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoEvolution 1 (House for live and work)In 2003, there was a change in social and economic status of the couple. The birth of a child in this small family, and the husband, an architect with a slowly growing work who ran his own firm from home, forcing the couple to add space and function of this house, that the addition also had an effect on the facade or aesthetics.The addition of space was extension of floor, which the original small house was expanded into 2 floors with composition of the front area for public/office and the back area and upstairs for private zone separated by the inner court.During the span of 2003 to 2006 the social and environmental life of the neighborhood was also evolving, indicated by the neighboring house behind of the different alley offering their house that this family could buy.Save this picture!© Mario Wibowo & George TimothyEvolution 2 (House for live and work)Within a period of 2006-2007 the first phase of Rumah Gerbong, with the scope of work by consolidating two opposite houses into one integrated house, that it has two different facades. The completion of this 3 phase house also made a developed non-physical evolution, of which name of Rumah Gerbong became well-known as being one of the IAI Jakarta Award nominations, an architectural award held by the local architects/committees of Jakarta, and included in several printed publications.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoIntervalIn 2016 the development of Rumah Gerbong restarted, the development was prepared as non- physical factors (social, economic, and environmental) began to develop significantly, which was the owner desired to move and add his office area, while the wife sought after a career in running a home business, and the children wanted to get closer to their family.Save this picture!Plan evolutionExploration of Rumah Gerbong in terms of shape, function, and budget produces several prototypes. This exploration has a common thread in typology that is, first, Pilotis 3-storey house design, as the selection of Pilotis strategy was to address the house development to add functionality without destroying the existing building in large scale and the addition of simple structure.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoSecond, the home zoning functionality was divided into 3 parts of compartment which were the living compartment (residence), business compartment (office and boutique), and social compartment (ground and roof floor). Business and residential compartments is each opposite facade to facing the street.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThird, the building has a vacant area for accommodation of wind supply, light, space for tree or plant and human interaction that will be designed in the house, that by the addition of empty space in the form of interaction space, therefore the disorder in terms of circulation, privacy and integration of existing compartments can be minimized as small as possible.Save this picture!SectionLatest evolution (House for Live, Work, and Interact)The end of 2017 has turned into the climactic peak in the construction of Rumah Gerbong, with several additional functions in compartment space. At the end of its development, the house had 3 compartments for live, work, and interact. As the function of living and work compartment facing directly to the street and having opposite facade, while in the middle, the contact between the opposite function was muffled by the function of social/interact compartment. The strategy of breaking the density and contrast of functions (living and working) by adding new functions in the form of empty space and interaction space produces a new distinctive typology with strong functional synergism, that the architect named this strategy as krowakisme (krowak = perforated, partially hollow).Living compartment contains 1 master bedroom, 1 bedroom, living room, bathroom, reading room, praying room, and service room. Working compartment contains workspace and mini home library. Among living and working compartments there is a social/interact compartment, with the composition of mini amphitheater, public kitchen, living room, and green rooftop.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoProject gallerySee allShow lessKoc University Medical Sciences Campus / Kreatif Architects + Cannon DesignSelected ProjectsDongsan Church / Oh JongsangSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

4 sources of coronavirus emergency funds for charities

first_imgCumbria Community Foundation COVID-19 Response FundCumbria Community Foundation has set up a fund to help charitable groups support vulnerable people affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19).The Cumbria COVID-19 Response Fund will prioritise funding to charitable projects across the county that are supporting people affected by the virus, helping to keep them safe and supported in their homes and reducing pressure on the NHS.Andy Beeforth, CEO of Cumbria Community Foundation, said:“We recognise that the outbreak of COVID-19 is an exceptional event that is already having an immediate impact on many of the charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups we support with grant funding. We know that these groups already helping those who will be most impacted are going to be stretched thin.“We have already seen a number of informal support networks springing up around the county to help the significant number of older people who live in our area who have chosen to self-isolate as a preventative measure against the virus. These people are at an increased risk of loneliness and isolation and will miss out on regular social interaction.”The Cumbria COVID-19 Response Fund will support charitable projects providing activities that help vulnerable people self-isolating, provide funding to coordinate community response and support volunteers, and increase capacity for organisations providing emergency support, such as foodbanks or benefits advice.Cumbria Community Foundation has contributed £100,000 to the Fund. The Foundation is aware that many people and businesses will be struggling financially, however, for those that are able and would like to donate to the Fund, they can click here or contact 01900 825760. The Fund will also provide a focus for charitable trusts, companies and other organisations wishing to support the community and charity response.For groups wanting to enquire about funding, they should click here or contact the grants team via email [email protected] 4 sources of coronavirus emergency funds for charities Community Foundation Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund for Tyne & Wear and NorthumberlandThe Community Foundation Tyne & Wear and Northumberland has launched the Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund to get help quickly to local charities and community organisations that are helping the most vulnerable people during the COVID-19 outbreak.The Community Foundation has put in £200,000 to kick-start the Fund. It is now asking the public, businesses and other funders to contribute, with plans for the first wave of grants to be made by the end of the month. The Foundation is hoping donations will double the initial amount, so it can support as many groups across communities as possible, for as long as possible.Rob Williamson, Chief Executive of the Community Foundation, said:“With this fund, we’ll use our knowledge to reach the organisations helping vulnerable people on the ground. And we’ll support charitable groups recover from the impact of the outbreak on their own work and income. We hope people come on board with us to help build the funds available. If anyone wants to contribute, I encourage them to get in touch with us, or give via the JustGiving page for the Fund.”Funding will be initially awarded to organisations providing services and support to older and vulnerable people as well as those with low and insecure incomes, including people on universal credit or working in the ‘gig economy’. Funding will also support activities for school-age children in less well-off communities where schools have closed.As time is critical, with grants hoped to be awarded by the end of March, for this round of funding the Community Foundation will choose organisations based on its knowledge of charities working in the region.In a second stage, the Fund will support a wider group of local charities and community organisations whose operations and finances have been affected, so they can recover and continue their activities once the outbreak eases. This will be via an application process that the Community Foundation will release details of in the coming weeks. For updates on this and other funds that may be available, people are advised to sign up to the Community Foundation’s newsletter via its website.

House Ag Chair Applauds House Passage of Energy and Jobs Bills

first_img SHARE By Gary Truitt – Nov 21, 2013 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter The U.S. House has approved the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act, the Protecting States’ Rights to Promote American Energy Security Act and the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act this week. House Ag Chair Frank Lucas says all three provide a tremendous opportunity to not only increase domestic energy production – but to protect and create jobs. In addition – he says the bills cut government red-tape to give the energy sector the resources needed to thrive. Lucas hopes the bills will be sent to the Senate for passage and to the President’s desk for his signature.center_img House Ag Chair Applauds House Passage of Energy and Jobs Bills Home Energy House Ag Chair Applauds House Passage of Energy and Jobs Bills Lucas says the Federal Lands Jobs and Energy Security Act – H.R. 1965 – would establish an efficient process to responsibly produce both renewable and conventional energy in the United States. He says the Administration has delayed the process for approving permits to drill on federal land for years – hindering domestic energy production. He says this bill would ensure the Interior Secretary sets a firm timeline to act on permits to drill. H.R. 1900 – the Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act – would direct the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to approve or deny natural gas pipeline permit applications within one year. The Protecting States’ Rights to Promote American Energy Security Act – H.R. 2728 – according to Lucas – helps reduce bureaucratic red-tape by limiting the Administration’s ability to impose duplicative and burdensome regulations on hydraulic fracturing. The bill prohibits the Interior Department from enforcing federal regulations in states that already have their own regulations established.

Students who were being investigated, he said, where surprised how fair the process was to them.DeVos on why she’s amending the Title IX systemBut Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has said the current system, which was created in the Dear Colleague Letter released by the Obama administration in 2011, is unjust and biased against accused students. To balance the scales of justice, DeVos said in a speech at George Mason University she will amend the system to ensure due process. This includes allowing for indirect cross-examination.Failed to fetch Error: URL to the PDF file must be on exactly the same domain as the current web page.

DeVos plans to end the Obama administration’s rules for investigating allegations of sexual violence on campus. DeVos said “The era of ‘rule by letter’ is over,” as she announced plans to review and replace the way colleges and university handle investigations. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)Carnahan said she has seen how difficult being cross examined by a respondent’s chosen advisor, often a defense attorney, in a panel style hearing is for survivors. She said this will deter students from reporting their assaults. But DeVos said everyone loses in the current system, including survivors. The lack of due process for the accused, she said, is discriminatory.DeVos talking about the lack of due process in Title IX“With the heavy hand of Washington tipping the balance of her scale, the sad reality is that Lady Justice is not blind on campuses today,” DeVos said in a speech at George Mason University. “This unraveling of justice is shameful, it is wholly un-American, and it is anathema to the system of self-governance to which our Founders pledged their lives over 240 years ago.” Lisa, a representative from Families Advocating for Campus Equality, or FACE, whose name has been changed to protect her privacy, also said there isn’t any due process in the current Title IX disciplinary process. She said schools don’t follow their procedures in a fair or just manner that presumes the accused is innocent until proven guilty. Lisa said FACE was created in response to the lack of justice in the Title IX investigative process implemented by the Dear Colleague Letter in 2011. “These students and their families had undergone awful, brutal experiences adjudicating allegations,” she said. Lisa said based on her experience working with FACE, schools can’t be trusted to do the right thing regarding Title IX cases, which is why the Trump administration has proposed implementing procedural protections that mimic the legal system. But Carnahan said the outcome of an academic disciplinary system, which deals with access to education, is different from the purpose of the criminal justice system. “It wouldn’t stop someone living their life free of jail time,” Carnahan said. A Stricter StandardIn this Sept. 24, 2018, photo, President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-In at the Lotte New York Palace hotel in New York. Trump’s victory helped give rise to the #MeToo era. Now, as it threatens his latest pick to the Supreme Court and his party’s electoral majorities in Congress. Trump is taking aim at the movement that has spurred a national reckoning around gender equity and sexual consent. Arguing that “false accusations of all types are made against a lot of people,” Trump defended Brett Kavanaugh on Tuesday against allegations of decades-old sexual abuse.(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)Under the Obama administration, university Title IX cases were adjudicated using the preponderance of evidence standard, which proves that there is a greater than 50 percent chance something is true. If the Trump administration’s recommendations are implemented, schools would have the option to apply either the preponderance of evidence standard or the clear and convincing standard, a higher standard that proves something is more than likely true. Turner said the evidence required to fit clear and convincing standards is a “feather difference” from the preponderance of evidence requirements, but there’s no room for doubt for something to be considered clear and convincing. This isn’t realistic for college campuses, where Turner said alcohol and emotions make Title IX cases more complicated. Turner also said the universities don’t have the legal support the criminal justice system has. Schools aren’t able to subpoena witnesses to testify in Title IX hearings, which makes it difficult to prove an assault or an act of misconduct happened.Sexual assault cases often lack physical evidence. According to the World Health Organization, two-thirds of rape victims don’t have physical injuries. Because legally proving an assault happened can be difficult, Faith, a senior at TCU whose name has also been changed in order to protect her identity as a survivor of sexual assault, said she chose not to report her rape. “I’m sorry I can’t prove you were inside of me,” she said about her rapist. “I’m sorry I can’t prove I said no vocally three times.” Searching for control, Faith said the often dragged out process of investigating sexual assaults wasn’t going to give her the justice and control she craved. Being sexually assaulted takes away control, she said. She didn’t want to go through a process that would take away her ability to control her decisions, so Faith decided to not press charges through Title IX or the legal system. Carnahan said some survivors file a report without looking for or expecting a particular outcome; Rather, she said they want to be heard and for their attacker to know the impact their actions had. Tightening BoundariesFormer Vice President Joe Biden delivers remarks regarding sexual violence on college campuses during a visit to Rutgers University, Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017, in New Brunswick, N.J. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)When DeVos released the earlier draft of the Trump administration’s proposed Title IX changes in November, concerns rose about a provision that wouldn’t permit schools to pursue Title IX violations that occurred off campus boundaries. Although the current draft has been amended to clarify that this provision “does not create an artificial bright-line between harassment occurring ‘on campus’ versus ‘off campus,’” there is still concern schools will be limited on what they can investigate. Carnahan said half of the Title IX incidents TCU investigates happened off campus. If TCU wasn’t able to investigate these reports, the repercussions for survivors would be a major concern, she said. “They could live a block from school,” she said, “and nothing could be done.” Faith said off campus parties play a role in the number of cases referred to Carnahan’s office. While working with Carnahan, Faith said she would see an increase in people seeking Carnahan’s guidance and support after a weekend with multiple off campus parties. Not only that, Faith said she also saw the impact of off campus sexual assault first hand at a party. “Girl unconscious,” she said. “Guy openly trying to finger her.” Grace, a survivor whose name has also been changed to protect her privacy, said the boundaries of a school’s campus shouldn’t define whether or not TCU should be able to hold its students accountable. She said students who agree to attend TCU agree to live by its moral standards. Turner also said universities should be responsible for holding students accountable for upholding campus values. DeVos, however, said investigating Title IX cases shouldn’t be a school’s responsibility because it doesn’t fall under their educational expertise.DeVos on why schools shouldn’t be the only voice on Title IX issues“Washington has insisted that schools step into roles that go beyond the mission of these institutions,” DeVos said. “This doesn’t mean schools don’t have a role. They do. But we should also draw on medical professionals, counselors, clergy, and law enforcement for their expertise.”But lessening the role schools play could impact students’ ability to hold their schools accountable for investigating reports and providing them with support. There’s a sense of urgency to ensure survivors are supported because the university is held legally responsible for their well-being, Grace said. “Who’s to say that sense of urgency would remain?” she said. Lisa said the urgent fear of losing federal funding is what pushed schools toward removing due process from their Title IX disciplinary processes. It also led schools to pursue investigations even when the victim didn’t want to file a complaint, she said. DeVos also cited this as an issue in her speech when she talked about an incident when a witness reported an incident to Title IX.“The young woman repeatedly assured campus officials she had not been abused nor had any misconduct occurred,” DeVos said. “But because of the failed system, university administrators told her they knew better.”Cases like the one DeVos mentioned is why the Trump administration’s guidelines requires schools to have actual knowledge that a violation occurred. For a school to have actual knowledge a violation occurred, it would have to be reported to “an official with authority to take corrective action.” Dear Colleague vs DeVosInfogramUnder the previous guidelines in the Dear Colleague Letter, schools were expected to investigate reports they had reasonable knowledge of, which meant schools were liable for investigating cases reported through less formal channels. Lisa said this system led to schools investigating allegations without the complainant’s consent. Mandatory reporters at TCU, which includes resident assistants, faculty and staff, are required to report allegations to TCU’s Title IX office, which can prompt an investigation. But even if TCU isn’t obligated or able to investigate, Turner said mandatory reporters will still be required to report allegations so TCU can ensure the students involved have access to support.Providing SupportLeah Carnahan teaches graduate social work students about bystander intervention.Both the Dear Colleague Letter and the regulations DeVos proposed encourage schools to provide students with supportive measures, including access to counseling, no contact orders and changing dorm rooms and class schedules. Both Turner and Carnahan said TCU already provides these measures.Putting in the time to support students is a fundamental aspect of how TCU’s Title IX office operates, Turner said. “We’re seeing students as many times as we need to,” he said. “We will put in the time.”Carnahan also said she will continue to focus on supporting survivors, but the proposed changes DeVos has proposed will make that a challenge.

The accused, belonging to India and from 3 foreign Countries had attended the Jamaat’s congregation in the Nizamuddin area of Delhi in March, which had surfaced as a major hotspot of COVID cases. The Counsel for the applicants advanced a singular contention, that two similarly-situated accused, facing trial arising out of same crime number and for allegedly committing similar offence, were enlarged on bail by the lower court on April 30. The Single Judge recorded that the Panel Lawyer for the respondent/State did not dispute that the present applicants are similarly situated and their Criminal Case is arising out of same crime number, while opposing the bail application. “If this is not in dispute that present applicants are similarly situated qua (the two other) and their cases are arising out of same crime number, there is no justification in putting the present applicants to a comparatively disadvantageous position. Resultantly, I deem it proper to grant bail to the applicants on the same conditions on which bail was granted by Court below (in the aforesaid instance)”, ordered the Single Bench, allowing the bail application.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Oxygen Uptake by Cryptopygus antarcticus (Collembola) at South Georgia

first_imgDeterminations of oxygen uptake of size classes I, II, III and IV of the collembolan Cryptopygus antarcticus Willem at +5°, +10° and +20°C were made at South Georgia, sub-Antarctic. The relation of respiration rate to live weight was similar at the three temperatures. Oxygen uptake increased with temperature within the range examined ( Q10 varying from 1.58 to 2.63). Comparison of South Georgia and Signy Island (Antarctic) data for C. antarcticus showed similarities between respiration – weight and respiration – temperature curves especially for the +5° to +10°C temperature range. No significant difference in respiration rate was detected between sexes from both locations, but a difference in body size was observed both between sexes, and between sites. The South Georgian specimens were smaller, lighter in weight and appeared to be sexually mature at a smaller size than those at Signy Island. The similarity of metabolism and the body size difference of C. antarcticus in the two populations are discussed.last_img read more
