This is a small house with a total floor area of 50 square meters in a densely populated area in Tokyo. As the surrounding houses close in, we set back the outer wall and lowered the roof as if to counter the smallness of the house. It is a home that comes with a small outdoor space that is not exactly a roof terrace, but is designed to have no specific function. The client, a couple in their 40’s, got hold of this land and requested to build a house for two.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraHowever, it is not to be a permanent residence, but a temporary abode that would accommodate their near-future plan to return to the countryside where their parents live, and possibly give up this Tokyo residence. While the couple are both full-time workers, they also like to enjoy such things as going to the public bath and eating out often. They wanted an open and compact house that is designed to take advantage of the city life. The site is located on a narrow alley.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraSave this picture!Plan – DetailSave this picture!© Kai NakamuraSince it has poor ventilation and daylight conditions, we decided to build a house with a single aboveground floor and a basement that’s been set about a meter beneath the ground. It is a simple floor plan where the bedroom and bathroom areas are placed on the semi-basement, dining room on the first floor, where the overhead space is somewhat freed up by embedding it into the ground, have been partially set back while maintaining a large internal volume.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraBy setting back the outer walls even more than the requirement of the regulation, we created various heights with ceilings that range from about 1.9 meters to 4.7 meters, and opened many large windows on the increased surface of the outer walls. While one can see the faraway sky, ample sunlight from above, and the walls of the neighboring house, there is also an unobstructed view of the street in the front. The gap between this house and its various distances and relationships directly influence the outlines of this house. This so-called unstructured house was built with wood.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Kai NakamuraBeginning with a beam that extends slightly overhead, we created four roofs aimed to create a space that feels like a small crevice between buildings by suspending one part of the structure and balancing it evenly throughout, while applying different types of finishes on the inner walls. There are buildings of various shapes in the city. On the other hand, the co mplexities and uncertainties created by the city’s uneven landscape is a unique quality that defines the city of Tokyo. To transform this sense of uncertainty into a tangible from―I thought that this process is really about giving shape to the fluid lifestyle and freedom of the client, whose wish is to live in this city and leave again to their next destination.Save this picture!© Kai NakamuraProject gallerySee allShow lessKitchen Sink Design Meets the Godfather of PunkArticlesThe Cloudscape of Haikou / MAD ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Area:  51 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Save this picture!© Kai Nakamura+ 23Curated by Hana Abdel Share 2019 Houses Japan CopyAbout this officeUNEMORI ARCHITECTSOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTokyoOn FacebookJapanPublished on April 28, 2021Cite: “House Tokyo / UNEMORI ARCHITECTS” 28 Apr 2021.

first_imgNews PakistanAsia – Pacific News January 29, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist murdered by politician June 2, 2021 Find out more Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) voiced outrage at the murder of a journalist by a mayor today in Pakistan’s North-West Frontier Province over a report about alcohol trafficking, and it called on the interior ministry to do everything possible to ensure the official is arrested and tried.The organisation also accused the federal authorities of sustaining a climate of violence against the press that increases the risks for journalists who are constantly under pressure from politicians and local elites.

Javed shot Tanoli five times in broad daylight on one of the town’s streets.Javed was named in a report by Tanoli three days ago on alcohol trafficking, which is banned in Pakistan under Islamic law. Javed had brought a complaint against the newspaper, demanding more than 200,000 euros in damages if it did not publish an apology.Javed fled after today’s shooting but police arrested his brother and son, who were named as accomplices to the murder in a complaint filed by Tanoli’s brother.

Sex offender pays penalty for having contact with children

Glen Considine, aged 39, a registered sex offeder in the UK, with an address at the South Circular Road, and with previous convictions in Ireland, was before Judge Carroll Moran at Limerick Circuit Court after he was found to be in breach of a court order to engage, interact and be honest and truthful with the probation services as part of his rehabilitation.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The accused had pleaded guilty last December to the sexual assault of a west African man who had been sleeping rough in Lady’s Lane in Limerick.The 23-year-old man stopped a garda patrol car after 5am on March 21, 2010, and notified them that he had been involved in a scuffle with the accused. The injured party claimed that Glen Considine sexually assaulted him.When it was put to him by Gardai, Considine admitted that it was his intention to rape the man, “to be in control”.He also said that he wanted to pay someone for a sexual experience, and that he did need help.Previously, between dates in July 2007 and January 2008, the unemployed carpenter from Eden Court had been charged with harassing a 17-year-old girl, making over 100 nuisance calls and telling her that he would find and rape her.In 2008, Considine’s house was searched after the girl made a complaint and traces of the calls led gardai to the accused.Considine was added to the sex offenders list in the UK in 1999 after he was convicted on two counts of indecently assaulting two young teenage girls.After pleading guilty to the nuisance calls, Considine told gardai that he was happy to be caught.He admitted to calling a random number and never had any physical contact with the girl, who lived on the East coast.However, at the time of pleading guilty to the assault of the West African, Considine was said to be engaging with the Lighthouse program for sexual deviants and his defence counsel, Mark Nicholas, sought an adjournment for the course to be completed. Considine was back before the court when a probation officer said that he had been calling “adult party lines,” despite having engaged well with the a sexual offenders rehab program. Considine made calls to the adult chat line and managed to make contact with a minor associated with an employee, and made one or two calls that were said to be of a sexual nature.Mark Nicholas said that Considine had been moving in the right direction with rehab but that his client was living an isolated and lonely life. He conceded that Considine’s behaviour was highly questionable and it was right to have the matter re- entered.He said he showed genuine remorse and offered an apology.He said his client breached the “spirit of his engagement with the probation services,” but that he was doing well otherwise.Judge Carroll Moran said that the matters that were returned before the court should carry consecutive sentences, and that in April 2010 Considine was considered to be a threat to the public.The judge convicted and sentenced him to three years in prison for the harassment matter. He also convicted him of the assault of the West African man, and sentenced him to one year in prison, suspende for a period of four years, and bound him to the peace for four years on his own €100 bond.Considine was also added to the sex offenders register for five years.

No Automatic Vacation Of Stay Under 3rd Proviso To Section 254(2A) Income Tax Act If Assessee Is Not Responsible For Delay In Hearing Appeal: Supreme Court

Any order of stay shall stand vacated after the expiry of the period or periods mentioned in the Section only if the delay in disposing of the appeal is attributable to the assessee”, the bench headed by Justice RF Nariman said.The third proviso to Section 254(2A) did not permit the extension of a stay order beyond 365 days even if the assessee was not responsible for delay in hearing the appeal. The Delhi High Court partly struck down this proviso. Section 254(2A) read thus: (2A) In every appeal, the Appellate Tribunal, where it is possible, may hear and decide such appeal within a period of four years from the end of the financial year in which such appeal is filed under sub-section (1) or sub-section (2) of section 253:… Provided also that if such appeal is not so disposed of within the period allowed under the first proviso or the period or periods extended or allowed under the second proviso, which shall not, in any case, exceed three hundred and sixty-five days, the order of stay shall stand vacated after the expiry of such period or periods, even if the delay in disposing of the appeal is not attributable to the assessee.While dismissing the appeal filed by Revenue, the bench, also comprising Justices BR Gavai and Hrishikesh Roy, observed that the proviso treats unequals  equally in that no differentiation is made between the assessees who are responsible for delaying the proceedings and assessees who are not so responsible. “This is a little peculiar in that the legislature itself has made the aforesaid differentiation in the second proviso to Section 254(2A) of the Income Tax Act, making it clear that a stay order may be extended upto a period of 365 days upon satisfaction that the delay in disposing of the appeal is not attributable to the assessee.”, the court said.The court noted that the object sought to be achieved by the third proviso to Section 254(2A) of the Income Tax Act is the speedy disposal of appeals before the Appellate Tribunal in cases in which a stay has been granted in favour of the assessee. The bench observed:Since the object of the third proviso to Section 254(2A) of the Income Tax Act is the automatic vacation of a stay that has been granted on the completion of 365 days, whether or not the assessee is responsible for the delay caused in hearing the appeal, such object being itself discriminatory, in the sense pointed out above, is liable to be struck down as violating Article 14 of the Constitution of India. Also, the said proviso would result in the automatic vacation of a stay upon the expiry of 365 days even if the Appellate Tribunal could not take up the appeal in time for no fault of the assessee. Further, vacation of stay in favour of the revenue would ensue even if the revenue is itself responsible for the delay in hearing the appeal. In this sense, the said 25 proviso is also manifestly arbitrary being a provision which is capricious, irrational and disproportionate so far as the assessee is concerned.We have already seen how unequals have been treated equally so far as assessees who are responsible for delaying appellate proceedings and those who are not so responsible, resulting in a violation of Article 14 of the Constitution of India. Also, the expression “permissible” policy of taxation would refer to a policy that is constitutionally permissible. If the policy is itself arbitrary and discriminatory, such policy will have to be struck down, as has been found in paragraph 17 above.The judgment authored by Justice RF Nariman held that the provision was violative of Article 14 for being arbitrary and discriminatory. The automatic vacation of stay provision was termed “manifestly arbitrary”, “capricious”, “irrational” and “disproportionate” as far as the assessee is concerned. It was noted that the stay would become automatically vacated after the prescribed period even if the non-disposal of the appeal was due to the inability of the Tribunal to take up the matter in time or due to the acts of the Revenue.”..the said proviso would result in the automatic vacation of a stay upon the expiry of 365 days even if the Appellate Tribunal could not take up the appeal in time for no fault of the assessee. Further, vacation of stay in favour of the revenue would ensue even if the revenue is itself responsible for the delay in hearing the appeal. In this sense, the said proviso is also manifestly arbitrary being a provision which is capricious, irrational and disproportionate so far as the assessee is concerned”, the judgment said.Case: Deputy Commissioner Of Income Tax vs. Pepsi Foods Ltd.

19-year-old surfer wounded in possible shark attack off North Carolina coast

first_imgWWAY-TV(OCEAN ISLE, N.C.) — A teenage surfer was rushed to the hospital on Monday after suffering from a possible shark attack off the coast of North Carolina, officials said. The 19-year-old boy was bitten at around 2 p.m. while surfing in waters off Ocean Isle Beach, located along the southern portion of the state’s coastline. Emergency workers said he sustained a bite to the soft tissue area of his right foot.First responders said they were able to control the “serious bleeding” before transferring him to a hospital in Wilmington — about 50 miles northeast of the scene. They said the teen appeared to be in stable condition and was talking with staff along the way.Officials with the Ocean Isle Police Department and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission are investigating the incident to confirm the type of bite he suffered.The boy’s family, who identified him as Austin Reed, said they panicked when they saw him running across the beach bleeding. His grandmother said he appeared to suffer from a “deep tooth bite.”“Austin is one to goof around a lot so [we] thought he was just kidding,” the teen’s brother told ABC affiliate WWAY-TV on Monday. “Yeah, I guess he really nonchalantly was like, ‘yeah, I got bit by a shark,’ and everybody was like ‘what!?’ and then they saw the blood and stuff. He’s alright.”The terrifying incident came about a week after another North Carolina teenager lost her leg in a shark attack about three hours away.Paige Winter, 17, was bitten by a shark on June 2 while swimming off North Carolina’s Atlantic Beach, which is about 140 miles north from where the Monday attack occurred.She suffered “deep lacerations to her leg, pelvic and hand areas” and had to have her leg amputated, authorities said. Her father manged to punch the shark in a move that may have saved her life, authorities said.“Her family expresses their appreciation for the first responders, the individuals on the beach who helped and her heroic father who saved her life,” Vidant Medical Center, which treated Winter, said in a statement. “Despite this unfortunate circumstance, Paige is an unwavering advocate for the marine life and the animals who live in the water.”“She wishes for people to continue to respect sharks in their environment and their safety,” the statement added.

Online lettings platform Goodlord raises £7.2m in extra funding

first_imgOnline rental viewings and digital tenancy processing platform Goodlord says it has signed up 300 agents, transacted over 50,000 tenancies worth £200m since launching in August last year, and that is has raised an extra £7.2 million in funding.Goodlord also says it has signed up several big names including Strutt & Parker, Remax and London-based LiFe Residential, as well as 121,240 tenants and landlords.The three-year-old company, which spent two years in incubation and preparation before coming to market, raised the extra cash from several sources including Californian venture capital fund Ribbit Capital and two existing investors.The extra cash will be spent on expanding its headcount and Goodlord expects to have 117 employees by June this year, up from 11 last year.“This funding will allow us to move to the next stage in our plan to revolutionise the way that rental property lettings are done, taking away the pain for both landlords and tenants,” says Chief Executive Richard White (pictured, below).The company received £2m of start-up cash in May 2016 from German venture capital firm Global Founders Partners, one of the contributors to its latest round of funding.Goodlord’s platform and smartphone app is one way for agents to digitally outsource the management of the tenancy process onto one platform and make it “quicker and hassle-free” for agents and tenants.This includes tenant finding, referencing, deposit collection and rent collection. Goodlord also claims that its platform saves agents between 50% and 75% of their administration costs.“Generation Rent has been getting a raw deal up to now,” says Richard White.“Not only are they priced out of buying a home, they are often having to deal with slow, shoddy service when they try to rent a place.“More and more people will be renting their homes for longer. They want to see quick, professional and efficient service from both agents and landlords. Goodlord can provide this in a way that is familiar to a generation that expects to complete purchases, order take-aways and hail a taxi using their phone in seconds.”goodlord Goodlord funding proptech Richard White Richard White Goodlord tenancy app tenancy processing app March 15, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
