The Leavitt Residence is an extensive renovation of a 1920’s mercantile building in the Chicago neighborhood of Bucktown. The 3-story existing structure consisted of heavy timber framing, with brick cladding at the exterior. An effort was made to respect the existing building while at the same time inserting dramatic new design gestures. The most significant insertion was to add an expansive window wall which extrudes upward and flows over the roof to create a highly transparent penthouse. The window wall provides connection to a private yard, a valuable asset in this dense urban setting.Save this picture!© Marty PetersThe second major undertaking in the building renovation was to replace the east façade which was determined unstable. The solution aims to replicate the rhythm of the existing columns while also announcing a modernist influence at the second level. Save this picture!© Marty PetersMirroring the triangular footprint of the building, a 3-story triangular shaped atrium is at the heart of the home, giving way to massive timber staircases surrounded by cedar and glass. The original beams and exposed brick juxtapose the modern Arclinea kitchen, echoing the same tension between old and new that’s created by the steel and glass window wall addition.Save this picture!© Marty PetersProject gallerySee allShow lessKew Gardens Hills Library / WORKacArticlesDesign and Virtual Reality Educational Complex / OIII architectenArticles Sharecenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/115403/leavitt-residence-miller-hull-partnership Clipboard 2007 Leavitt Residence / Miller Hull PartnershipSave this projectSaveLeavitt Residence / Miller Hull Partnership General Contractor: Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Photographs:  Marty Peters Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Year:  CopyHouses•Chicago, United States Photographs Architects: Miller Hull Partnership Area Area of this architecture projectlast_img read more

Alternatively, it was also pointed out that there cannot be any upward revision of fees as of now.”We are sure that this is a matter which is apparently gaining the attention of the government which has a say in the matter having regard to matters falling within its umbrella of executive administration and control over educational institutions by the State laws”, observed the Division Bench.The Court adjourned the matter to June 25 for the Advocate General to obtain the response of the Government and place it on board.On May 12, the Uttarkhand High Court had passed an order to stop private schools, which were not conducting online classes, from demanding tuition fee during the lockdown period. Challenging this direction, the schools had approached the SC, and the apex court issued notices on the SLPs .The High Court of Kerala last week passed an interim order restraining a school from levying additional fees on students for holding virtual classes.A single bench of Justice C S Dias also referred the writ petition to a division bench, in view of the “substantial public interest involved”.The bench also made reference to the suicide of 14-year old Devika, which was allegedly due to her inability to join online classes as she did not she did not have a smart phone and a working television set in house. The Court noted that tight to education is sacrosanct in the Constitution of India and is the mandate under the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009.While making the reference, the Court also noted that several states have ordered that students should not be denied education for want of payment of fees during this pandemic period.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty took strong objection to the classification created by the state government whereby financial aid is given only to farmers who ended life after borrowing from banks and financial institutions. The bench orally observed : “Prima facie the cause for which farmer commits suicide is important…cause is he is heavily indebted…he is not able to repay the loan so he taken this option of committing suicide. What is the difference between the class of farmers who taken money from banks and credit societies and commit suicide and class of farmers who take loan from private money lenders and committed suicide? Why has the state made the distinction between the two?” The bench in its order urged the Chief Secretary while filing his affidavit in three weeks’ time, to look at the seriousness of the situation. The court said “Only in one taluka there are about 125 cases of farmers committing suicide, within a span of five years. We are sure that the chief secretary will consider why some farmers are forced to approach individual money lenders for obtaining loans.” The bench gave the direction after perusing the affidavit filed by Brijesh Kumar Dikshit, Commissioner for Agriculture and Director General, Environmental Management and policy research Institute. The affidavit stated that “The government has no control nor there is any regulation preventing farmers from taking any loan from private money lenders and therefore this aspect is one of the reasons for determining the eligibility of the farmers to extend the benefit.” It adds “However, if the same family who have suffered at the hands of the private money lenders also have taken loan from the banks or other notified institutions the family is still entitled for the benefit, subject to satisfaction of any and or all other conditions.” The bench firstly noted “The stand taken about the assistance to families of the farmers who committed suicide is quite shocking.” Secondly, the bench said “It is clear that state has created two artificial classes of farmers who have committed suicide. In first class is of farmers who had taken loan or borrowed money from banks/credit society etc. The second class is of those farmers who had taken money from money lenders. State government has decided to deny compensation to the families of the farmers who have taken money from private money lenders and have committed suicide.” Following which the bench noted “Prima facie it appears to us that cause of suicide is inability of farmers to repay the borrowed amount with interest. Therefore, prima facie it is very difficult to accept that the classification made by the state government will stand the test of Article 14 of the constitution of India.” Accordingly, it directed the Chief Secretary to look into the affidavit filed by the Commissioner and file his affidavit. It also directed the state government to place on record details of grievance/complaints disposed of by the district grievance redressal committee at District Yadgir. As per information given to the court from 2016 till 2020-21, 125 farmers committed suicide in Shahpur taluk of yadgir district. Out of 125 farmers who committed suicide, families of 105 farmers are entitled to the compensation. Of which 20 families were held ineligible as the farmers who committed suicide had not borrowed the money from banks. Out of 105 families found to be eligible, still 7 families have not been paid compensation. The directions were given while hearing the petition filed by Akhanda Karnataka Raitha Sangh. Advocate Clifton D Rozario appeared for the petitioner. The petition states that the State Government has declared various relief for the families of the farmers of those who have committed suicide including monetary compensation of Rs. 5.00 lakhs, free education for the children, Rs. 2000/- widow pension, etc. However, unfortunately, the families of the farmers who have committed suicide in the taluk have not been given all the relief, with some of the families receiving no relief to date. The petition also sought directions to the respondents to disburse crop insurance loss compensation to all insured farmers in Shahapur Taluk (Yadgir district) under the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (henceforth referred to as PMFBY), for the 2016 monsoon season and thereafter.

Only 8 food companies approved for Brexit loan scheme

first_img Facebook DL Debate – 24/05/21 By News Highland – January 27, 2019 Pinterest WhatsApp Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Harps come back to win in Waterford Homepage BannerNews Only 8 food companies approved for Brexit loan scheme WhatsApp Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img A Donegal Deputy has raised concern at the extremely low rate of Brexit loan funds approved for food companies.According to data obtained by Deputy Charlie McConagloue, only eight companies have been approved for the funding scheme which was announced in October 2017.Deputy McConalogue explained, “We are just 61 days away from the March 29th deadline for the UK to exit the EU. It is unbelievable that the Government’s much vaunted Brexit working capital loan scheme announced in October 2017 is failing to deliver for Ireland’s most exposed sector.“The Departments of Business and Agriculture have jointly leveraged exchequer funding to create a €300 million loan scheme for businesses impacted by Brexit, with 40% of the fund ring-fenced for the food sector.“However, latest PQ replies released to me show that out of 42 eligible applications for food companies, just eight have been sanctioned for finance under this loan scheme. Shockingly, this means that just 1 in 5 eligible loan applications for the sector have actually been approved for funding worth €3.8m.“Worse still, this equates to just over 1% of the total €300 million loan having been approved for food companies so far. This is another example the Government failing to operationalise supports and contingencies that work seamlessly for exposed businesses as opposed to being administratively burdensome.“Given how the food sector has almost 80% of its employment based outside of Dublin, any impact from Brexit will have strong regional employment consequences. Minister Creed and his government colleagues must now immediately seek market disturbance supports along with state aid rule changes in order to operationalise grant aided schemes to support farmers and the agri-food sector. Waiting to close the stable door after the horse has bolted is not a prudent approach”, concluded Deputy McConalogue.

Charleton Tribunal told GSOC report on Harrison was not an official complaint

first_img Google+ Twitter Pinterest Facebook Pinterest Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic A report which was sent to GSOC by Donegal gardaí outlining alleged threats a garda whistleblower made to his partner was not an official complaint, the Charleton tribunal has been told.Mark Harty SC, who represents Garda Keith Harrison, told the tribunal yesterday that the correspondence sent to the Ombudsman Commission did not constitute a complaint as defined in the Garda Síochána Act.Case officer George O’Doherty said a GSOC file was opened on October 8, 2013, following receipt of correspondence from Chief Supt Terry McGinn in Letterkenny Garda station, which contained a statement from Garda Harrison’s partner, Marisa Simms.The file was sent to Darren Wright, a GSOC senior investigating officer, who forwarded it to Mr O’Doherty.A note from Supt Eugene McGovern said the reported alleged threats were being referred as it was deemed they should be investigated under Section 102 of the Garda Síochána Act.Mr Harty said that Section 102 applied only where ‘conduct of a member of the Garda Síochána may have resulted in the death of, or serious harm to, a person’.Mr Harty also said that a complaint could be made under Section 83 of the Act, but not unless the person who was injured consented to make a complaint.Mr O’Doherty said that GSOC received correspondence which the Garda Siochana took the view was a complaint, but they contacted the complainant to confirm they wished to make a complaint.When Mr O’Doherty contacted Ms Simms she first told him she wanted to think about it, and then called back later to say she did not want a GSOC investigation.”It fell at hurdle one. The complaint was not made by, or was not authorised by Ms Simms,” Mr Harty said.Mr O’Doherty also agreed that there was no question of Marisa Simms being put under pressure by An Garda Síochána to make a statement.Mícheál P O’Higgins SC, on behalf of the Garda Commissioner, said there was “an entirely bona fide belief that the matter could be dealt with under Section 102”.The tribunal also heard that Ms Simms made a later complaint to GSOC in August 2016 alleging that she and Garda Harrison had been subjected to “ongoing harassment and intimidation by Donegal gardaí” because of Garda Harrison’s whistleblowing and had to move house as a result.She alleged there had been a “fabrication of alleged death threats against her partner as no investigation into these threats has been considered.” DL Debate – 24/05/21 WhatsApp WhatsApp News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img By News Highland – September 22, 2017 Google+ Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Charleton Tribunal told GSOC report on Harrison was not an official complaint Journey home will be easier – Paul Hegarty Previous articleClarity sought on Donegal LIS allocationNext article10 jobs created with more to follow as new store opens in Letterkenny News Highland Homepage BannerNews Twitter Facebook Harps come back to win in Waterford last_img read more

New Orleans mayor vows ‘relentless’ investigation in deadly Hard Rock Hotel collapse

first_imgTwitter/@ABC(NEW ORLEANS) — Crews were feverishly working on Sunday to stabilize the Hard Rock Hotel in downtown New Orleans a day after the building partially collapsed, killing two construction workers, leaving a third trapped in the rubble and injuring 30 others, officials said.One body has been recovered from the scene, according to New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell.New Orleans Fire Chief Tim McConnell said at a news conference near the disaster site on Sunday that search-and-rescue crews were poised to reenter the building.“Search and rescue continues to be our top priority at this time,” McConnell said.He said the search of the building that had been under construction was halted overnight after conditions were deemed too dangerous to allow first responders to enter.McConnell said a large crane was also damaged in the collapse and remained in a precarious position.He said a massive crane weighing 110 tons was trucked into the city overnight from Baton Rouge and will be used to help stabilize the building once it’s assembled.Hazardous conditions, according to the chief, prevented search teams from recovering the bodies of the two construction workers killed when the upper floors of the building suddenly gave way and pancaked on one another. He said the identities of the dead construction workers and the one who remains missing have yet to be confirmed.“This is not something you take lightly,” McConnell said of the search efforts. “Safety is the No. 1 thing. The last thing you want to do as you’re trying to rescue someone is lose someone else.”Dr. Emily Nichols, director of Emergency Medical Services in New Orleans, said of the 30 people treated for injuries, only one remained hospitalized on Sunday.Mayor Cantrell said she visited the injured worker late Saturday night at University Medical Center New Orleans. She said the worker, who is in stable condition, suffered a fractured femur and underwent surgery.“He is in the best of spirits that he can be in,” Cantrell said. “He told me that it could have been worse. He said it happened very fast. He heard noise, looked around and moved very, very quickly.”Cantrell said the investigation into the collapse will get underway once everyone believed to have been inside the building at the time of the collapse is accounted for.“After search and rescue, it will shift into a full-investigative mode and we will be relentless in those efforts moving forward,” Cantrell said.She identified Citadel Builders, based in Metairie, Louisiana, as the general contractor on the Hard Rock Hotel construction project. The 18-story, 350-room hotel near the city’s French Quarter and Theater District was scheduled to open in 2020.Brian Trascher, a spokesman for Citadel Builders, told ABC News on Sunday that the company is working closely with the city to stabilize the building.“Our team is pretty much part of the incident command. We’re working nonstop. There’s no fusing, no arguing, no pointing fingers right now,” Trascher said.Trasher said the cause of the collapse remains under investigation.According to preliminary information, all permits had been obtained to complete the building and that everything was “up to code,” Cantrell said.Trascher said the big problem on Sunday afternoon was how to secure the damaged crane that was listing from the side of the collapsed building. A top engineer for the company who operates the crane was flying in from Germany to assist local officials, he added.The collapse happened around 9:12 a.m. local time at Canal and North Rampart Streets, McConnell said.Trasher said more than 110 construction workers were on site when the collapse happened.In a statement to ABC News, Citadel Builders said that it “remains committed to the safety and well being of all first responders and SAR teams working in and around our construction site in New Orleans.While the process may not always move at the desired pace, rest assured that our team continues to work closely with Mayor Cantrell and Chief McConnell’s personnel on the scene.”“Multiple internal and external investigations are in progress, but we are still in the infancy stages as we have not yet had access to the building. This situation is being handled much like a plane crash, in that rescue/recovery are the primary functions, followed by the search for physical and technical indicators that may provide clues to the cause,” the statement continued.Citadel Builders has flown in the chief engineer for Morrow Cranes, the crane owner, as well as the head engineer of the manufacturer from Munich, Germany, to aid in the recovery effort, according to the statement.Officials said it appeared the collapse initially affected the sixth to eighth floors before damage spread throughout a large portion of the building.Dramatic video of the incident showed parts of the building crashing into the street as debris billowed into the air.Cantrell said that 10 surrounding buildings, including condominiums, were evacuated and that electricity and gas to those buildings remained turned off on Sunday. Nearby streets were closed to vehicles, according to NOLA Ready, the city’s emergency preparedness center.The mayor said debris from the collapse caused extensive damage to the roof of the historic Saenger Theater across the street, forcing the remaining performances of the musical “Wicked” to be canceled.Hard Rock International said in a statement the company had “no involvement in the construction of the project” but extended its “deepest sympathies to victims of this tragic accident and to their loved ones and friends.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Amol Sarva trashes Newmark after ouster from Knotel

first_img Tags Message* Full Name* Email Address* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Knotel CEO Amol Sarva and Newmark CEO Barry Gosin (Sarva via Sasha Maslov; Gosin via Newmark)Knotel co-founder Amol Sarva took some shots at its new owner, Newmark, on his way out the door of the flex office company he ran into the ground.In a blistering email Friday evening, Sarva accused the brokerage of using the bankruptcy process to take over the once high-flying Knotel and damaging the company’s relationships.In months leading up to its bankruptcy filing in February, Knotel angered many of its landlords by refusing to pay rent, torching relationships along the way. SL Green, Manhattan’s largest office landlord, said it would never do business with the firm again.Sarva, in his letter, laid the blame at Newmark’s feet.“This process undermined lots of important relationships and hurt lots of customers and partners,” he wrote. “I’m so disappointed that this was the direction pressed.”ADVERTISEMENTTo run Knotel in Sarva’s place, Newmark hired former WeWork vice chairman Michael Gross and a pair of other executives connected to WeWork, the co-working rival that Sarva once trolled by parking a bus outside its headquarters.Sarva, referring to Newmark’s business decisions and former WeWork CEO Adam Neumann, claimed in his letter that it was his choice to leave Knotel.“The process made clear to me that I would not choose to be part of the new owners’ way of moving forward,” he wrote. “Only to confirm that judgment, they have literally hired a group of Adam Neuman[n]–era WeWork bros to lead the company forward.”The Knotel co-founder added that he was planning another startup, but would not yet say in what field.Sarva and a representative from Newmark were not immediately available to comment.In a previous farewell message, sent March 24, Sarva called Newmark “a most unwelcome guest,” Business Insider reported.Contact Rich Bockmann Share via Shortlink Amol SarvaCommercial Real EstateCoworkingKnotelNewmarklast_img read more
