The design of this private library has started from a requisite of space from a bibliophile: to organize and expose a collection of books previously confined in boxes. It was proposed a dialogue between daily habits cultivated in a pre-existing house and a large garden area available.Save this picture!© Dalton Bertini RuasThe additional library’s area intended to maintain distance enough for the recognition of new volume autonomy as well as to be placed comfortably close enough to complement and connect existing balconies and external areas. The zone of transition between new and old volume was established by a generous garden, and its incorporation into the project was determined from distinct purposes of the openings:Save this picture!Site PlanTransparency: north and south facades that aim at a visual contact with existing house and the bordering garden, being protected in the north by eaves that avoids solar rays in summer and invites them to enter in winter;Save this picture!© Dalton Bertini RuasTranslucent: the eastern facade is filtered with inclined horizontal brises, which homogenize external landscape, and at the west facade a dense vegetation filtrates direct sun rays and homogenizes external view;Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!SectionDematerialization: The zenith opening is performed with special high solar filtration glass, and its position dematerializes a continuous brick wall from the main shelf, reflecting and framing the external pines.Save this picture!© Dalton Bertini RuasInner spaces are thus defined by the openings and are arranged by the central double-brick wall, which structure the library main casing. The toilet, the most enclosed space of the design, is the buttress of this mixed structure of wooden pillars and structural masonry wall. In contrast, the most open space is the reading balcony, where one seeks to keep a simplicity of habits of reading under the canopy of a tree.Save this picture!© Dalton Bertini RuasProject gallerySee allShow less9 Unusual and Interesting Small Churches and Chapels, As Selected by SketchfabArticlesWant to Understand the Inner Workings of China’s iPhone City?

Forest YMCA standardises entire operation using NetSuite

first_imgJames Nicola, volunteer ICT strategic director for Forest YMCA. “We investigated the use of various applications, but they were discounted because of the lack of functionality, the cost of managing disparate systems, and a complex and costly upgrade path. NetSuite offered us a much better value proposition with a high degree of integrated functionality, that has replaced the many disparate software applications we had. NetSuite is now used at the YMCA across the whole organisation from accounting to customer relationship management.”  29 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 London-based Forest YMCA has standardised all its business operations, from finance to customer relationship management, on NetSuite, the online integrated business package for small to medium-sized organisations.Like many charities, Forest YMCA previously used DOS-based accounting, and a range of standalone spread-sheets and Access databases. In order to resolve its IT and business problems it evaluated software such as Microsoft Great Plains, Siebel CRM and SAP Business One, and chose NetSuite.NetSuite claims that, within two months of implementating NetSuite for the charity’s 250 users, Forest YMCA has been able to eliminate 60 spearate departmental databases and cut IT costs “in half”, from £200,000 to £90,000 annually. It also says that with ‘dashboard’ access that offers one view of every YMCA client, supporter and partner, the charity is now “on target to increase turn-over from supporters by 70%”.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Scottish social care charity Quarriers is launching the Ten Minute Tea Break fundraising initiative with the aim of persuading employees from 1,000 companies to stage their own Ten Minute Tea Breaks on Friday 6 March. They will be encouraged to raise funds through collections, auctions, cake sales and other simple fundraising methods.The charity tried out the event on a small scale last year by contacting fewer than 100 companies, of which 12 held tea breaks. Along with 38 other tea breaks held by community groups and individuals, the event raised more than £3,500 and its success has persuaded Quarriers to roll it out across the Scottish business community this year.Quarriers’ telephone fundraising agency Relationship Marketing is handling most of the recruitment for the event, aiming to place packs in 800 companies. Calls began last week, on and so far nine packs an hour are being sent to interested companies, two more than the target of seven an hour.Quarriers itself is communicating directly with 200 companies with which it already has a close relationship, using a mix of telephone, email and letter.“The Ten Minute Tea Break is one of the simplest ways to engage people with our cause,” said Bryan McCall, events and community fundraising manager at Quarriers. “Once you get down to it, the fundraising itself is all pretty simple stuff – leaving a collection box on a table, selling home made cakes, holding a raffle or auction. But the key is to find something that brings everyone together to do these things in the first place and a works tea break is such a great rallying call.Gordon Michie, Relationship Marketing’s director of development, said: “It’s not easy being a telephone fundraiser. We can call at the wrong time and it’s important that we don’t make people feel guilty about saying no.“The great thing about calling for the Ten Minute Tea Break is that there’s no wrong time to ask British workers if they fancy a cuppa”.Relationship Marketing has been working with Quarries for the past four years and now handles all welcome, upgrade and reactivation calls, along with the placement of the successful home money box programme.last_img read more

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.“We tried to make it into a soccer game, but I think it was hard for us to do that,” said TCU head coach Eric Bell. “We have to be able to fight to keep the ball once we have it, and I don’t necessarily think we did a great job of that.”TCU came out in their typical 4-4-2 diamond formation, but pressure from Baylor in the first half forced them to switch to a more defensive 4-5-1 to get more numbers in the midfield.Despite a 7-3 shot advantage for the Bears in the first half, an excellent performance by TCU goalkeeper Emily Alvarado kept the game scoreless at halftime.“I know she made one hell of a save in the first half to keep us in it,” Bell said. “Obviously I haven’t seen the tape, but I thought she did a really good job.”The scoreless draw was broken in the 59th minute from a set piece. A foul on TCU’s Tijana Djuricek led to a free kick for Baylor, which was lofted in and found the foot of striker Camryn Wendlandt, who buried it through the legs of Alvarado.The Frogs struggled to deal with set pieces and crosses all night– most of Baylor’s better chances came from balls lofted into the box.After the goal, TCU had to take more offensive initiative, and they did, switching to a 4-3-3 formation with strikers Bright and McKenzie Oliver on the wings.Messiah Bright finds space against a Baylor defender on September 28, 2018.

Food company tries to censor news website’s old reports about union dispute

first_img News Organisation Reporters Without Borders is outraged that Yörsan, a privately-owned dairy products company, is threatening to sue the news website EmekDunyasi.net if it does not withdraw archived articles that reflect poorly on the company. The site could be closed if it refuses to take down old reports about union action taken by 400 Yörsan employees in 2008.“This kind of judicial blackmail is a real problem,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Few journalists dare to criticise private sector companies or financial groups for fear of reprisals. We urge the Turkish courts not to tolerate Yörsan’s censorship attempt, which could set a dangerous precedent for the online media.”The press freedom organisation added: “The company seems to think it has a right to draw a veil over the past. In reality, this is an aggressive public relations initiative designed to suppress records of an industrial relations dispute that is not good for the company’s image.”Yörsan’s lawyer wrote to EmekDunyasi.net on 20 May asking it withdraw the articles within two days under Law No. 5651 on the Suppression of Crimes Committed by Means of Online Publications. Claiming the articles did not “conform to the current situation,” the letter said their availability through search engines or in the website’s archives threatened the company’s “brand value” and “financial reputation.”Article 9 of Law 5651 says: “Anyone who believes their rights are being violated may ask the content provider to withdraw the offending content (…) The content provider or access provider must carry out this request within two days. If the request is refused, the matter can be referred to a police court within 15 days (…) If the court so rules, the penalty for offenders is from six months to two years in prison.” In a statement issued yesterday, EmekDunyasi.net ruled out any possibility of complying with Yörsan’s request. “If this company is so attached to its brand value, it should respect the union rights that are guaranteed by the constitution. We will not withdraw any of the articles that have been posted on our site since its launch in August 2007.” News Receive email alerts TurkeyEurope – Central Asia June 8, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Food company tries to censor news website’s old reports about union dispute News Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor News to go furthercenter_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Turkey April 2, 2021 Find out more April 2, 2021 Find out more Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Help by sharing this information last_img read more

The Bar Council has highlighted various lapses in criminal laws, starting from “sluggish investigations” to “street trials”, eroding public confidence in the Police. As per the letter, the existing Police model is “incapable” to render speedy and fair justice, and therefore it is necessary to introduce substantial Police reforms. “The legal community in India has many well experienced experts in criminal law and by virtue of their dealing with criminal cases extensively, they can help the government for bringing a better system and suggest suitable amendments… The Bar Council of India and other state bar councils, along with experts on the subject can provide better inputs-with their vast experience, but so far they have not been included in the High power committee. We hope that the Government of India will include representative of the Bar Councils to help in introduction of a better system,” the BCD hence wrote. Citing glaring examples of crime against women, including the Nirbhaya gang rape case and the Hyderabad rape case, the Council pointed out that there is widespread public discontentment due to “lackadaisical approach” of the Police. The Council has suggested introduction of “drastic amendments” in procedural laws to provide effective preventive mechanism and for conduct of fair and honest investigation. “Any lapse at any stage must face serious consequences, even imposition of imprisonment,” the Council suggested. It continued, “The stories of investigations and trials of criminal cases has always been a> subject matter of intense criticism, be it crime relating to women or any other crime. The fact of the matter is that despite repeated efforts, a viable criminal justice system could not be put in place. Your kind attention is drawn to the Justice Malimath commission report which has extensively examined various aspects of criminal law and made recommendations long back but no final decision was taken on the recommendations. It’s high time when Government must take a call to revamp or Change the system drastically.” Inter alia, the Council bats for appropriate amendments to the Information Technology Act and establishment of Cybercrime Cells in each Police Station. “The websites and other internet service providers making pornographic material easily available must be checked and stopped, no matter who they are. They should be made liable and be punished with stringent punishments of minimum 3 years, including heavy fine,” it states. The Council further added that there is need for a serious debate for a “better social environment” to get rid of deteriorating socio-economic conditions and misuse of internet, which is the major cause leading up to crime against women and children.

Therefore, theh amendment itself is bad and the consquential government orders isssued by the 3rd respondnet(State of Kerala) are also bad, illegal and liable to be set aside”, stated the petition filed through Advocates C M Mohammed Iqbal, Anjali G Krishnan, Soumya Mol N S, P Abdul Nishad and Rehana Shukkur.The petition also sought a directive to the State Government to refix the 10% quota for economically weaker sections after conducting a proper study regarding the population of the EWS in the general category.In August, a 3-judge bench led by the Chief Justice of India referred to a larger bench the petitions challenging the Constitution amendment providing for EWS reservation.Can posts be reserved only on the basis of economic criterion? Is 50% ceiling absolute? – these are some of the substantial questions identified by the SC bench while referring the case to larger bench.  Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
