The house is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood between Orchard Road, the upscale shopping street in Singapore, and the UNESCO World Heritage site ‘The Singapore Botanic Gardens’. The planning of the house was initiated by the client’s requirement for a private gallery to exhibit his art collection. As guests would be invited for viewing of the art collection, the gallery is separated from the other private living spaces.Save this picture!© Masaki HarimotoSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Masaki HarimotoSave this picture!© Masaki HarimotoA glass pavilion adjacent to the main structure serves as the entrance to create a formal sense of arrival. It is also a transitional space where circulation splits between guests and family members. Guests move directly to the gallery beside the entrance, while family members proceed via the entrance staircase to the living room and the bedrooms on the upper floors. To take advantage of the high ground with an open city view, the second floor with the living room is the Piano Nobile of the house.Save this picture!© Masaki HarimotoA cantilevered terrace extends from the Living room to provide an outdoor space with greenery to assimilate a garden on the ground level. The living room is a L-shaped double volume space in section with a staircase crossing over it to link between the third floor and the roof terrace above. The house is categorized as semi-detached house, one of the most common building typology in Singapore, which shares a common wall with the neighbor. As the common wall does not allow openings, a central inner courtyard is inserted to bring in natural light and ventilation. Around the courtyard, one can enjoy the movement of nature such as the Sun, clouds, rain, the tree as well as the movement and interaction between the family.Save this picture!© Masaki HarimotoIn order to protect from the tropical sun and rain at the one degree north of equator, the triangular-profiled aluminum fins are installed at the glass openings of the entrance and the living room. The multiple circulation including three staircases, and the interlace of  courtyard and the roof terraces create the architectural promenade where one freely roams about with constantly changing views inside the house.Save this picture!© Masaki HarimotoProject gallerySee allShow lessLLM House / Obra ArquitetosSelected ProjectsSabou School / 3RW ArkitekterSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:SingaporeLocation to be used only as a reference.

What Will Be Different About This Farm Bill

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Feb 16, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News What Will Be Different About This Farm Bill Facebook Twitter What Will Be Different About This Farm BillChuck ConnerThe writing of the new Farm Bill has officially begun with the House holding hearings this week.  There will be a lot that is the same in this new Farm Bill, but a few things that will be different. Chuck Conner, with the Council of Farmer Cooperatives, has participated in the crafting of more Farm Bills than just about anyone else alive. He told HAT this new Farm Bill will have several new features. For example, trade programs will be a much bigger factor this time around, “This will be a Farm Bill that is about how do we help farmers through some pretty tough times. Trade is a key component of that. Our Export market is about the only outlet for improving prices for commodities.”Conner, a native Hoosier and former Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, says the conservation title of the new Farm Bill will also have a different approach, “We have a leadership time in place both in Congress and at the administration that believes in cooperative conservation.” He defines that as using conservation assistance to come alongside producers and help them make changes for the good in their operations. “This is different than the leadership we have had the past few years that favored a government regulator showing up at a farm with a switch in hand and telling a famer what he is going to do,” said Conner.As for the commodity title, Conner sees only minor changes, “Most farmers are happy with the ARC program; there are a few problems, however, and we need to fix those.” He also said the dairy and cotton programs need to be addressed.The nutrition title will get a lot of attention in this farm Bill, according to Conner, because this Farm Bill cannot pass without the support of non-farm lawmakers.

Training for union reps will be cash well spent

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Thereis bound to be a hue and cry about the Government’s move to create and fund aTrade Union Academy to train union representatives to university level.Why,many will ask, should train unionists have an edge in negotiations withemployers? And why, some are already asking, should we have to fork out time,and therefore money, to accommodate trade union representatives undergoingtraining?Because,quite simply, the stand-offs and distrust between trade unions and employerscannot stay the way they are. If the new academy delivers well-rounded coursesthat give unionists a better understanding of business and allows them to talkat least a similar language to employers, then the greater prize will be betteremployee consultation, engagement, motivation and, ultimately, higherproductivity.Unionshave an big part to play in staff consultation. Yetfew display real business skills. Until this changes,the decline in employers using them to communicate with staff on major issueswill continue. See the results of Cranfield School ofManagement’s latest Cranet Survey.Modernisation is the key to successfulunion actionAtthe HR Forum on board the Aurorain May, there was a lone trade unionist mingling with HR’smost senior professionals. Rory Murphy, joint general secretary of Unifi – newly merged with Amicus to form one of the UK’sbiggest unions – took the platform to debate trade union partnerships withbusiness.Heargued that trade unions should be at the centre of business as the consultantsof the 21st century. He said he understood that unions had to become partnerswith employers to improve the lot of employees.Murphymakes sense. It’s a shame there are not more unionists like him. Unions have tomodernise if they are to do their job properly. They could start by beingproactive.If,for example, those unions representing staff at British Airways had taken thelead and helped to devise good people strategies when the organisationprivatised, would there still be endlessly recurring industrial disputes of thelikes we’re witnessing today? Quite possibly not.By Penny Wilson Training for union reps will be cash well spentOn 24 Aug 2004 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img read more

USS Gunston Hall Participates in IMCMEX 12

first_imgAmphibious dock landing ship USS Gunston Hall (LSD 44) is participating in the International Mine Countermeasures Exercise 2012 (IMCMEX 12) while operating in the Gulf of Aden, Sept. 16-27.More than 30 international partners from Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and North America are involved in IMCMEX 12, making it the largest exercise of its kind in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.So far, Gunston Hall has hosted members of the Royal British, Royal Canadian, Djiboutian and Yemeni navies, amongst others.The Canadian naval officers are in charge of the exercise’s operations aboard Gunston Hall.“We are the eyes and ears of the reporting network of the day-to-day operations for the commander of the joint task group,” said Royal Canadian Navy Lt. David Botting, Gunston Hall’s IMCMEX 12 battle watch officer.The multilateral exercise focuses on mine countermeasures (MCM) operations, but also includes MCM support activities such as intelligence; surveillance and reconnaissance; maritime security operations; visit, board, search, and seizure events; maritime critical infrastructure protection; explosive ordnance disposal; maritime domain awareness and force protection. “MCM work has got to be a continuous program and an evolving subject, so if we should ever be called upon to go and do some sort of lane clearance, we are ready and capable of doing it,” said Royal Navy Chief Diver Alan Knowles. “It’s about international partners coming together and working toward a common goal of keeping the waterways secure and open for all vessels,” said Lt. John Gray, Gunston Hall’s operations officer. “It’s important because when you share ideas and a collaboration of resources, you come up with new, efficient and better ways of doing things.”Gunston Hall is part of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group with the embarked 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Gunston Hall is currently deployed in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, September 26, 2012; Image: September 26, 2012 View post tag: Naval View post tag: 12 Share this article View post tag: USS View post tag: Gunston View post tag: Navy View post tag: IMCMEX Training & Education View post tag: Hall USS Gunston Hall Participates in IMCMEX 12 View post tag: Participates Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Gunston Hall Participates in IMCMEX 12 View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

Career Offender’s Motion For Relief Untimely, 7th Circuit Rules

first_imgKatie Stancombe for www.theindianalawyer.comA prisoner’s motion for relief following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that invalidated certain language in the Armed Career Criminal Act was denied Thursday after the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals not only found his motion was untimely but also unlikely to survive on the merits. While imprisoned for the rape and robbery of two separate women, George Sotelo was convicted in 1995 for three counts of mailing communications with the intent to extort money and three counts of mailing threating communications after he threated the lives of two other women and their families if they did not continue sending him money. Sotelo received an enhanced sentence of 262 months’ imprisonment for committing “crimes of violence” based on his career offender status for his two prior qualifying convictions.Sotelo neither appealed the sentence nor filed a collateral attack under 28 United States Code § 2255 within the one-year limitations. But more than 20 years after his 1995 conviction, he filed a § 2255 motion after the United States Supreme Court in Johnson v. United States, 135 S. Ct. 2551 (2015) invalidated as unconstitutionally vague a portion of the Armed Career Criminal Act that contained the same language defining “crime of violence” as the language in the sentencing guidelines used to sentence him.Although the government argued that Sotelo’s challenge was untimely, the Indiana Northern District Court considered his motion on the merits and denied it. Specifically, the lower court rejected Sotelo’s contention that the “threat to kidnap” or “threat to injure” found in 18 U.S.C. §§ 876(b) and (c) constituted a single indivisible element that would not categorically qualify as a crime of violence under the elements clause of U.S.S.G. § 4B1.2(a)(1). It thus reaffirmed a 7th Circuit holding in United States v. Sullivan, 75 F.3d 297 (7th Cir. 1996), that a § 876 violation is a “crime of violence.”A 7th Circuit panel Thursday affirmed the lower court’s decision in Sotelo’s case when it found his § 2255 motion was untimely. It also pointed out that Sotelo’s sentence was unaffected by the unconstitutionally vague language in the residual clause of § 4B1.2 because he was sentenced under the elements clause.“… [W]hile Sotelo is correct that to satisfy § 2255(f)(3)’s requirements he need not prove definitively at the outset that his sentence is unconstitutional in light of a new rule of constitutional law made retroactive by the Supreme Court, Johnson does not provide a back-door approach to challenge any sentence under § 4B1.1 or the ACCA,” Circuit Judge Ilana Rovner wrote for the unanimous panel.Further, the 7th Circuit found the only retroactively applicable case that Sotelo cited in his appeal – Johnson (2015) – said nothing as to whether § 876 was a crime of violence under the elements clause of § 4B1.2. That, the panel noted, is the only question relevant to his claim for relief.“There is thus no need to address the more thorny legal question of whether a movant who satisfies § 2255(f)(3) with a valid claim under Johnson (or some other case declared retroactively applicable on collateral review) may advance arguments based on cases such as Mathis, Elonis, and Curtis Johnson, which post-date the conviction but have not been declared retroactively applicable on collateral review,” Rovner wrote, referencing the Supreme Court cases of Mathis v. United States, Elonis v. United States and Curtis Johnson v. United States.“Accordingly, we leave for another day the issue of whether Mathis calls into question this court’s holding in Sullivan that § 876 is categorically a crime of violence,” the panel concluded. “We note, however, that every court to consider the issue, both before and after Johnson, has concluded that a § 876 conviction entails a threat to use physical force, and is thus categorically a crime of violence. …. So although we reject Sotelo’s motion as untimely, we note that it is not likely to have fared well on the merits either.”The case is George R. Sotelo v. the United States of America, 16-4144.
