Social context This house takes part of a program of the congregation Rotterdam who wanted to revitalize disadvantaged neighbourhoods by selling metier houses to private persons. These homes have in common that they are neglected the last few years and have to be refreshed. The buildings usually consist of several small apartments, one per layer. The purpose of the municipality by selling the buildings is to attract inhabitants with more carrying-capacity. Condition of sale is that the property will be restored within a specified period and will transformed into one house. This causes less, but larger houses. This is the opposite trend to what happens in many inner cities where larger houses are divided into several small apartments.Save this picture!© Frank HanswijkRecommended ProductsDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82DoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumPatio FurnitureCaneplex DesignUmbrellas – CocopalmDoorsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemThe renovation of the Rotterdam ‘metier house’ is turned into an architectural spectacle, where was experimented with time and space. The 100 years old facade of a dwelling in a closed housing unit, is totally painted black. Both masonry, frames and “windows” are covered with a shiny black oil. This creates a kind of ‘shadow’ of the original facade. In some places the new transparent windows pierce through the historical facade. The new windows announce a time with a very different way of living. This creates a relationship between the original facade and the new interpretation which become readable. All floors and small rooms behind the old windows run into one spatially contiguous entity.Just like in the façade, also in the interior the traces of the past remained visible. On the building walls an old banister and holes of removed floor joists reveal the original layout of the dwelling. The new house in the 100 year old cover has a completely different planning. The traditional layout of floors and walls, which compose the rooms are missing. Instead a series of small wooden slats compose a huge sculptural element. By this is a continuous space is left between the four walls of the historic building. This creates living spaces, which are connected by voids, large stairwells and long sightlines. All redundant banisters, railings and doors are left out, causing a high degree of spatial abstraction.Save this picture!© Frank HanswijkFloors, walls, stairs and ceilings blend together and seem to recall an “Escher-like” impossibility. Yet this metier house (that has been empty for nearly 30 years) is far from uninhabitable. In the lower part of the house a large workroom is placed connected to the ‘roof tiles-bamboo garden’. Above is a series of semi-open living functions: living, eating, cooking, study, sleeping and a bathroom / closet. The old roof tiles are removed in the upper part (re-used in the garden) and a new greenhouse is placed with a hot tub with a stunning view. The existing building is used as a box to build a completely new house in it. All walls and floors of the house were demolished which created a space of 5 meters wide, 10 meters long and 11 meters high. In and up this box three different “worlds” are stacked: the studio, the house and the roof garden. On the ground floor, the 5 meters high studio is built. This studio space is kept as open as possible. This is achieved by organizing the necessary facilities along the walls as much as possible, in one continuous element. The living area is placed above the studio with a height of 6 meters. In this space, a sculpture is build which divides space into several areas without creating closed rooms. The object is designed and situated in a way that in several places views arise which emphasize the entire length, width and height of the place. The design is concentrated on the residual spaces between the object and the existing walls.Save this picture!© Frank HanswijkMaterialization sculpture The sculpture is entirely composed of screwed bars together which forms both construction and finish. This construction method creates a great freedom of form. A large part of the object hangs with these bars on the roof floor so that support becomes superfluous. Colour use In the house, five colours are used: black, white and three greyscales. An existing side wall is totally painted white. The traces of construction, including the old railings and pipes are all painted white. The other building wall is left untreated. The different faces of the object are painted in three greyscales. These shades are aligned to the space they enclose. By this method, the space between the object and the existing box are strengthened.

All other stations only have temporary permission to broadcast,” recalled Robert Ménard, the organisation’s secretary-general. “Unfortunately, the application of this measure was foreseeable. The station has been in the authorities’ sights since its launch in September 2001. Its tone is disagreeable to some.” RSF asked that the station’s broadcasting equipment be returned. March 11, 2021 Find out more News RSF also recalls that General Eyadéma is included on the organisation’s list of international press freedom predators. According to information collcted by RSF, on 7 Feburary 2002, Radio Victoire was forced to cease broadcasting after Ministry of the Interior agents seized the station’s broadcasting equipment. The radio station is accused of not complying with the Audio-visual and Communications High Authority’s (Haute Autorité de l’audiovisuel et de la communication, HAAC, the public body that regulates audio-visual media) formal demand, sent to the station’s newsroom via the General Intelligence Services on 5 February. The HAAC had urged the station to cease broadcasting because it had not signed the agreement governing the setting up and operation of private stations. Radio Victoire only has temporary authorisation to broadcast, just like most other stations. Togolese authorities urged to lift newspaper’s four-month suspension News to go further Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en TogoAfrica RSF recalls that the HAAC had previously ordered Radio Victoire to cease broadcasting the two programmes “Revue de Presse” and “Vice-Versa” until further notice. In a letter dated 29 November 2001, the HAAC explained that it had based its decision on the fact that, “these controversial programmes lead their hosts to make impassioned and defamatory statements that discredit (Togo’s) constitutional and administrative authorities.” The previous day, the prime minister had expressed his displeasure to an official from the station concerning a news bulletin that reported on President Gnassingbé Eyadema’s visit to France, his relations with French President Jacques Chirac and the human rights situation in Togo.

More Cool Stuff Curiosity’s Selfie at the “Mary Anning” location on Mars: NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover took this selfie at a location nicknamed “Mary Anning” after a 19th century English paleontologist. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSSNASA’s Curiosity Mars rover has a new selfie, one made up of 59 pictures stitched together by imaging specialists. The selfie was taken on Oct. 25 – the 2,922nd Martian day, or sol, of Curiosity’s mission, NASA reported.NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, JPL, a division of Caltech, leads the Curiosity mission. This latest selfie is from a location named “Mary Anning,” after a 19th-century English paleontologist whose discovery of marine-reptile fossils were ignored for generations because of her gender and class. The rover has been at the site since July, taking and analyzing drill samples.Scientists on the Curiosity team thought it fitting to name the sampling site after Anning because of the area’s potential to reveal details about the ancient environment.Curiosity used the rock drill on the end of its robotic arm to take samples from three drill holes called “Mary Anning,” “Mary Anning 3,” and “Groken,” this last one named after cliffs in Scotland’s Shetland Islands.The robotic scientist has conducted a set of advanced experiments with those samples to extend the search for organic (or carbon-based) molecules in the ancient rocks.Since touching down in Gale Crater in 2012, Curiosity has been ascending Mount Sharp to search for conditions that might once have supported life.This past year, the rover has explored a region of Mount Sharp called Glen Torridon, which likely held lakes and streams billions of years ago. Scientists suspect this is why a high concentration of clay minerals and organic molecules was discovered there.It will take months for the team to interpret the chemistry and minerals in the samples from the Mary Anning site. In the meantime, the scientists and engineers who have been commanding the rover from their homes as a safety precaution during the coronavirus pandemic have directed Curiosity to continue its climb of Mount Sharp. The rover’s next target of exploration is a layer of sulfate-laden rock that lies higher up the mountain. The team hopes to reach it in early 2021.Curiosity took the selfie using a camera called the Mars Hand Lens Imager (MAHLI), located on the end of its robotic arm. MAHLI was built by Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego.For more information about Curiosity, visit https://mars.nasa.gov/msl/ and https://nasa.gov/msl.

Local NewsBusiness CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 10, 2021– A healthy smile expresses who a person is and how they feel, but something as simple as a smile can sometimes be taken for granted. Tooth decay is the No. 1 chronic disease in America, with children in underserved communities disproportionately impacted. Black and Hispanic children experience a higher rate of tooth decay, but are less likely to see a dentist. As champions for unleashing healthy smiles, Crest and Oral-B commit to advancing oral care habits to ensure all Americans have a smile they are happy to share with the world. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210210005244/en/ At Crest and Oral-B, we aspire to establish healthy oral care habits for a lifetime and enable all Americans to have a healthy smile. (Photo: Business Wire) “Crest and Oral-B are on a mission to unlock the life-changing power of healthy oral care habits, because everyone deserves a healthy smile,” said Carlos De Jesus, Senior Vice President, NA Oral Care, P&G. “For over 60 years, our brands have provided people with products that deliver better oral health results. We are committed to improving oral care for all, while educating people on how small changes to their oral care routine can make a big impact on overall health.” The brands’ efforts will focus on enabling access to dental products and services, education, and product innovation that deliver better outcomes for people and the planet. Promoting Healthy Smiles Through Access Crest and Oral-B aspire to enable 100% of Americans to have access to oral care products, oral health education and dental care. In 2020, Crest and Oral-B donated more than $2.5 million in products and care to support healthy smiles across the U.S. The brands also donated more than 400,000 Oral-B toothbrushes and Crest toothpastes through partnerships with organizations like America’s ToothFairy and Dental Lifeline Network. Limited access to dental care and oral health issues cause children to lose 34 million school hours each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control 1. Crest and Oral-B are increasing efforts to provide free dental check-ups to kids through partnerships with organizations such as the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College Dental Hygiene Program. Encouraging Healthy Smiles Through Education Crest and Oral-B are committed to furthering healthy habit education through dental professionals and with our brand voices to establish healthy oral care habits for a lifetime. The brands have provided more than $140 million in continuing education to dental professionals over the past 10 years. Crest and Oral-B will continue to work with these professionals across all 50 states to provide resources and tools that inspire healthy at-home oral care habits and promote understanding on the connection between their oral routine and overall health. We are also engaging kids through educational materials and activities to establish healthy habits, like brushing twice a day, early on to ensure they grow into a smile they are confident in. Advancing Healthy Smiles Through Products and Innovation Crest and Oral-B design products and solutions that enable effective oral care results and inspire responsible consumption to support a healthy planet. For better oral health results, it is important to choose high-performing products.Brush with an Oral-B electric toothbrush. It improves gum health by removing up to 100% more plaque than regular manual toothbrushes.Toothpaste matters, too. Unlike standard toothpaste, Crest Gum & Pro-Health toothpaste neutralizes bad bacteria to improve gum health.Complete your oral care routine with floss and rinse. In a clinical study, 100% of patients with unhealthy gums saw improvement in gum health when using Oral-B iO, Crest Gum Detoxify, Glide Floss and Crest Pro-Health Multi-Protection Rinse together. The brands are designing out waste and re-shaping the future of product and packaging. For example, Oral-B Clic manual toothbrush with replaceable brush heads uses 60% less plastic, Crest is converting to recyclable toothpaste tubes by 2025, and both Crest and Oral-B already have an alternative recycling program to make it easy for consumers to give their used products new life. Better habits for the planet also require responsible sourcing and manufacturing. Crest and Oral-B localized manufacturing in the U.S. makes more than 90% of our toothpaste and manual toothbrushes for the U.S. market. All U.S. facilities also purchase 100% renewable electricity and send zero manufacturing waste to landfills. These actions are rooted in the P&G global Oral Care platform “Healthy Smiles. Healthy Lives. Healthy Planet.” and will contribute to the Company’s goal to educate and enable 2 billion people to adopt healthy oral care habits by 2030.

Noting that “the dockets of the Courts are already over-flowing”, Justice Anil Kshterpal opined that the filing of the multiple petitions is “neither in the interest of justice nor in the interest of the Judicial Institution”. The Single Bench expressed the view that “it results in wastage of valuable time of the Institution” to which “the Bar and the Bench are equal participants”. “This Institution has been set-up to make a sincere endeavour to give justice to all the litigants. For achieving that goal, it is necessary that unnecessary filing of any kind of petitions should be discouraged”, the court said. The Single Bench was hearing a petition filed by a workers’ union against the State of Punjab and other respondents. “At the outset, it is significant to note that the writ petitioner has filed a previous Civil Writ Petition, which after notice of motion issued on 24.06.2020, is pending for 20.07.2020. The parties to the previous writ petition as well as the present writ petition are exactly the same”, noted the Court. “Question which this Court is called upon to answer is ‘Whether multiple writ petitions with regard to same or similar cause of action between the same parties, should be permitted to be filed or not?'”, reflected the bench. Justice Kshetarpal observed that the High Court, for regulating the filing of writ petitions, has notified the writ jurisdiction (Punjab and Haryana) Rules, 1976. As per the format issued, in the Index of the petition, there is a requirement of disclosing whether there is any other similar case or not. Further, the bench noted that Rule 32 of the 1976 Rules provides that In all matters for which no provision is made by these rules, the provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure 1908, shall apply mutatis mutandis, in so far as they are not inconsistent with these rules. The Single Judge appreciated that Order 2 Rule 2 of the CPC prescribes that while filing a petition or a suit, whole of the claim, which the plaintiff or the petitioner is entitled to make in respect of a cause of action, shall be required to be added failing which he shall not afterwards be entitled to sue in respect of the portions so omitted or relinquished. Similarly, the bench observed that Explanation IV of Section 11 of the CPC, also provides that any matter which might and ought to have been made a ground of defence or attack in such former suit or petition under Article 226, shall be deemed to have been a matter directly or substantially in issue in such suit or proceedings. “Order 2 Rule 2 of the CPC, is thus applicable particularly when in the 1976 Rules, there is no provision inconsistent with the provisions of Order 2 Rule 2 of the CPC”, said the bench. Noting that Section 141 of the CPC deals with the miscellaneous proceedings and the Explanation added thereto provides that the expression “proceedings” would not include any proceedings under Article 226 of the Constitution, the Court, however, took the view that on account of the specific provision made in the 1976 Rules, the procedure prescribed in the CPC has been made applicable unless such provision is inconsistent with the 1976 Rules. “The Hon’ble Supreme Court has also, on more than one occasion deprecated the practice of filing multiple writ petitions on same or similar cause of action”, reflected the bench. Justice Kshetarpal reiterated at the time of filing a writ petition, the petitioner is required to make a disclosure in the Index and the relevant para, if such or similar petition is pending before or decided by the Supreme Court or the High Court or any other court. The writ petitioner is also required to disclose the difference in the cause of action, if any, in both the writ petitions, if any. Still further, the writ petitioner shall disclose the reasons why the relief claimed in the subsequent petition could not be claimed or included in the previously instituted petition. “These observations/guidelines are being issued because filing of the multiple writ petitions should be avoided”, said the court. In the instant case, the question “Whether this Court should entertain the second petition?” was answered in the negative by the Single Judge. Keeping in view the fact that the present writ petition has been filed by the Workers’ Union, the Court did not “wish to pass any harsh orders” and accordingly, disposed off the petition.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
Employers urged to review use of fixed-term contractsOn 1 Dec 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Employers need to review their use of fixed-term contracts and whether thoseemployed under them should become permanent workers, advisers have warned. The final nail for such contracts will be hammered home in June 2001, whenthe Fixed Term Contracts Directive is due to be implemented in the UK, saidhead of employment at Osborne Clarke OWA, Nicholas Moore. The directive prohibits an employer from unjustifiably treating a fixed-termcontractor less favourably than a permanent employee. It will compel employersto consult workers’ representatives over the use of fixed-term contracts, andwill allow the UK Government to cap the number of times a fixed-term contractmay be renewed. “Combine these aspects with the obvious disadvantages of a fixed-term contract– that without good reason or an appropriate break clause, early terminationwill result in a claim for damages – and you wonder whether there is anypoint,” Moore said. There might be a future for fixed-term contracts among apprentices, headded, since less favourable treatment will still be allowed in their case. Those on fixed-term contracts of more than two years can still agree towaive their right to redundancy payments, but such advantages will be marginal.Employers should take these into account and adopt a clear policy on fixed-termcontracts, such as bringing benefits packages into line with those forpermanent contracts. Death of a contract1983: House of Lords held practiceof breaking continuity of service for fixed-term workers by inserting breaksbetween terms would fail, unless break was substantial.October 1999: Governmentoutlawed practice of getting fixed-term workers to sign away unfair dismissalrights.June 2001: Fixed-TermContracts directive to be incorporated into UK law, prohibiting employers fromunjustifiably treating fixed-term workers less favourably than permanent ones.
