Building housing for the disadvantaged population of the northern districts of Toulouse (one of the most dynamic areas of the conurbation) is – as part of ADOMA’s insertion mission – a modest yet active contribution to the development of a more generous and mixed city. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThe new construction project on the west portion of the ADOMA site necessitated a profound questioning of its organisation, including a change in the balance between built and unbuilt areas to the detriment of the latter, and consequently to the quality of use by residents.Save this picture!PlanOne could indeed fear, given the size and the current configuration of the Place des Papyrus, the overall direction of the site and the technical constraints imposed by the construction of timber modules, that many homes would be facing north and overlook -or be overlooked by- existing buildings. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultAware of these constraints and aiming to make the new building «acceptable» in an urban way for existing residents and as comfortable as possible for its future residents, we suggested the chosen timber modular construction system which would achieve the following objectives: Save this picture!© Philippe Ruault Implanting the new building so that it positively reorganises the surrounding collective areas, especially by offering new practical and ornamental spaces replacing the existing ones. Maintaining the uidity of domestic routes throughout the site, whilst optimising its functional organisation. This includes repositioning service and equipment facilities – mailboxes, spaces for two-wheeler parking and selective waste sorting – and reorganising means of access. Minimising overlooking and north-oriented apartments, while ef ciently organising internal service paths, the overall compactness and the technical management of the building.  Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultThis results in a synthesis, as part of the architectural and technical project, between the inherent ef ciency of the repetitive, dense and «stackable» aspect of a modular building and the contextuality that is essential to the new building’s quality of use and «integration».These differing objectives are successfully and closely intertwined in this project. Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultProject gallerySee allShow lessCanada, Extraction Empire: A Report From the Edge of Empire (Outdoors, That Is)ArticlesZwarte Silo / Wenink Holtkamp ArchitectenSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:3 Place des Papyrus, 31200 Toulouse, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

first_imgA joyous celebration took place in Atlanta’s Howell Park on May 14, as hundreds of people enjoyed a bountiful array of food, music, children’s activities and the company of the 17 women bailed out of jail in time for Mother’s Day, along with the organizations that made it possible.“Black Mamas Bail-Out Day” was launched by Southerners on New Ground (SONG), a LGBTQ organization headquartered in Atlanta, to expose the use of bail as an inherently anti-poor and racist measure that keeps thousands of working people in jail before they are convicted of any offense.SONG’s research found that on any given day, some 700,000 people are held in jails in the U.S. solely because they lack the funds to make their bail. They can lose their jobs, housing and children while awaiting their day in court.Most often these people are arrested for minor offenses such as disorderly conduct, using fighting words, or even jaywalking, loitering or trespass. Police discretion in many of these arrests targets people of color and poor and working-class neighborhoods. People are arrested at traffic checkpoints for unpaid parking tickets, lapsed insurance or the lack of a driver’s license. The inability to pay a traffic fine can land a person behind bars.Some 80 percent of incarcerated women are mothers or caregivers. Their absence from their families injures their children and communities in immeasurable ways.This creative, political campaign was seized upon by dozens of organizations around the country, stripping Mother’s Day of its commercial veneer and truly recognizing the value of women to the well-being and liberation of their families and people.Black Mamas Bail-Out Day took place in at least 18 cities, from Birmingham, Ala., to Baltimore and from New York City to Oakland, Calif. Tens of thousands of dollars were raised to pay the ransom money known as “bail” for women. Services were offered to help with job placement, housing needs, health and wellness concerns, legal counsel and more.In Atlanta, women were bailed out of the Fulton County jail on May 11 and from the Atlanta City Detention Center on May 12. At each location, a welcoming group was stationed outside with flowers, Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority cards, gift bags and warm smiles.The women emerged from the jails, not knowing who or how their release had been secured. Upon learning of this community effort to bring them home for Mother’s Day, tears of joy were shed, and hugs and smiles were plentiful.At the May 14 celebration, some of these women’s stories were shared. One of the most compelling was that of a 71-year-old woman who, having no food at home, went to a nearby store. She was arrested for allegedly stealing a can of peanuts and had been in jail since April, unable to pay the bail money.Young mothers with small babies in their arms stood before the crowd, speechless in their happiness to be with their children again.Mary Hooks, co-director of SONG, was interviewed by media outlets as diverse as Democracy Now! and CNN. It was a sign of the political significance of the campaign in this time of harsher criminal measures coming from the Trump administration, and the growing consciousness of the corporate profiteering that underlies mass incarceration in the U.S.A similar effort for Father’s Day is being discussed.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Later they resolved their differences and eventually got married on 11.10.2014. The Delhi High Court, before which, the accused moved a petition for quashing FIR, observed that settlement in cases where nature of offence is heinous/serious like murder, rape and dacoity, the criminal proceedings cannot be quashed even if there are settled by the accused and the victim, by invoking the jurisdiction of High Court under Section 482 CrPC. “Rape not only causes serious injury to a woman’s body, her honour and dignity and even if such an offence is settled by the offender and victim, this offence being not private in nature but has serious impact on the society and, therefore, cannot be quashed.”, the High Court had observed.Before the Apex Court, both the accused and complainant stated that they are enjoying happy married life. Therefore, they made a joint request  that the FIR be quashed as it was the outcome of some misunderstanding between them. They contended that consensual intercourse on the false promise of marriage amounting to rape is an offence against an individual and the dispute arising therefrom is personal in nature as opposed to forceful rape committed against the will and without the consent of the victim which is an offence against the society and not an individual.”Considering the nature of allegations in the FIR and the realization of the fact that due to miscommunication FIR came to be registered at the relevant point of time which issues/misunderstanding have now been fully resolved and the parties are happily married since 11.10.2014, the basis of FIR does not survive. Rather registering such FIR was an ill-advised move on the part of the private respondent, is the stand now taken before us. It is seen that the appellant and private respondent are literate and well-informed persons and have jointly opted for quashing of the stated FIR. Taking overall view of the matter, therefore, in the interest of justice, we accede to the joint request of quashing of FIR in the peculiar facts of the present case… The Writ Petition filed by the appellant for quashing is allowed, as a result of which, all steps taken on the basis of impugned FIR be treated as effaced from the record in law”, the bench said while allowing the appeal.

Hershman and vice chairman Hayden Soloviev (Solow Residential, Fairfax, LinkedIn)Stefan Soloviev spent years running a cattle and wheat agricultural business out of New Mexico before stepping into a greater role at his father’s Solow Building Company. In recent years the East Hampton resident has been buying up farms and vineyards on the North Fork.Now, five months after the death of his father, Sheldon Solow, the real estate scion is reorganizing some of his varied ventures into a new holding company, the Soloviev Group.The entity will encompass realty and development, in addition to hospitality, transportation and railroad, and agriculture and ranching divisions. Soloviev will serve as chairman, his son Hayden Soloviev as vice chairman and Michael J. Hershman as CEO, Solow Building Company announced Monday.Solow Building Company and Solow Realty and Development, and their current and future real estate assets, will operate under the new Soloviev Group’s real estate division.ADVERTISEMENT“As we continue to diversify our business interests into other arenas, including agriculture, ranching and logistics, the firm is uniquely positioned to experience unprecedented growth and I look forward to leading this transformation,” Soloviev said.Soloviev’s father Sheldon Solow died in November of 2020. Accumulating a net worth of $4.4 billion, the developer amassed an extensive portfolio, which includes 9 West 57th Street and 685 First Avenue.In an industry full of characters with grand ambitions, eclectic interests and unusual life stories, Soloviev stands out. He took his family’s ancestral Russian name, covered his arms with tattoos and had 11 children with his ex-wife, Stacey Soloviev, his partner in the wine business — and four children with two other women, according to the New York Times.Read moreBillionaire developer Sheldon Solow dies at 92Solow’s last stand?Sheldon Solow’s son buys Shelter Island hotel at auction In 2018, the Times profiled Soloviev and his father, a litigious billionaire developer. “I’m taking over the business. I get that,” Soloviev told the paper. “But right now I work with my father. And I don’t think we’ve ever worked as well together as we are right now.”Hershman, the new holding group’s chief executive, founded the Fairfax Group in 1983, merged it with Decision Strategies of New York City in 1997 and SPX in 2006, when he re-established it in Fairfax County, Virginia. Last year he joined Solow as COO and left a management team in place to run Fairfax, which remains a separate entity, he said in a phone interview.According to Fairfax’s website, 61 years ago Hershman was a special agent specializing in counterterrorism for U.S. military intelligence.Contact Sasha Jones Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name*last_img read more

first_imgThe Antarctic Peninsula magmatic arc was the site of Andean-type subduction from at least Silurian times to the late Cenozoic. Hydrothermal galenas from eight localities in accretionary complex, arc volcanic sequences and plutonic rocks along a strike length of 1100 km have restricted 206Pb/204Pb, 207Pb/204Pb and 208Pb/204Pb compositions (18.628–18.734, 15.599–15.673 and 38.441–38.689 respectively) plotting on crustal average growth curves. The local geological setting, and comparison with Andean leads, suggest that the major source reservoir was isotopically homogeneous sedimentary rocks forming the late Palaeozoic–Triassic accretionary complex. The lead data suggest that old continental basement is absent at least as far south as 65°S. Galenas from a large (13 × 2 km) epithermal vein system on Hurd Peninsula fall in three populations: a main isotopically homogenous array (18.643, 15.647 and 38.503, 2σ = 0.020, 0.020 and 0.050, n = 33) interpreted as a large hydrothermal system that extracted homogenous leads from early Triassic turbidites. Two smaller sub-populations, with more radiogenic 206Pb/204Pb, are associated with mid- to late Cretaceous intrusive rocks, and may represent either local contributions of magmatic lead or younger hydrothermal episodes. In western Graham Land, two localities associated with mantle-derived mafic intrusions of Cenozoic age have low 207Pb/204Pb and 208Pb/204Pb ratios indicating addition of some mantle-type lead.last_img read more

first_imgCamm Prosecutor Reprimanded For Book DealIL for www.thrindianalawyer.comThe Indiana Supreme Court has imposed a public reprimand against a Floyd County prosecutor charged with violations of three Professional Conduct Rules after he failed to recuse himself from a case he planned to write a book about.The justices issued an order Friday imposing the public reprimand against Keith A.  Henderson, who was the lead prosecutor in the case against David Camm, a former police officer charged with and eventually acquitted of the murder of his wife and two children after multiple trials.Days after a jury found Camm guilty during a second trial, Henderson entered into an agreement with a literary agent to write a book about the case. Then, when the Indiana Supreme Court reversed Camm’s convictions and remanded the case to a third trial, Henderson told the agent that he now had a “bigger story.”Although the book contract was eventually dropped, Camm petitioned for a special prosecutor to be appointed in his third trial, a motion that was denied at the trial court level but granted at the appellate level, when the Indiana Court of Appeals ordered Henderson’s removal from the case. The Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission then began an investigation into Henderson’s conduct, so he hired private counsel to represent him and sent payment vouchers, which included invoices from his private counsel, to the Floyd County Auditor.The commission eventually found that Henderson had violated Indiana Professional Rules of Conduct 1.7(a)(2), 1.8(d) and 8.4(d) based on the conflict between his duties to the state and his own personal interests in the book deal, and the effect that conflict had on Camm’s trial. The commission also found Henderson to be in violation of Rules 8.4(c) and 8.4(d) based on the invoices he gave to the auditor, which the commission said he presented as requests for reimbursement related to his work on the Camm case, not the disciplinary action.Judge David L. Pippen, who acted as the hearing officer, agreed with the conflict of interest charges against Henderson, but found that there was a lack of “clear and convincing evidence that (Henderson’s) submissions to Floyd County were fraudulent.” The justices of the Supreme Court agreed with the hearing officer’s report and found Henderson to be in violation of Rules 1.7(a)(2), 1.8(d) and 8.4(d), but found in his favor on the invoices charge.While the Disciplinary Commission called for Henderson to be suspended, but Pippen recommended the public reprimand.“The violation is serious and adversely affected the administration of justice in this case,” the court wrote in its Friday order explaining its decision to impose the public reprimand. “However, noting Respondent’s misconduct occurred in connection with a single, unusual case and is an aberration from what otherwise has been a long and distinguished career as a public servant, we conclude a suspension is not warranted in this case.”All justices concurred except Geoffrey Slaughter, who did not participate.
