With a strong Islamic influence, a fishing town presents an irregular and organic network of narrow roads and overlapping constructions, of recognized volumetry (cubist).The existing building with 2 floors, high ceilings, vaulted ceilings, and roof terrace fits into popular architecture typology, which is intended to preserve, enhance, and readapt.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraOn the ground floor, with a total area of 90m2, are the social areas of the house – kitchen and living room in open space, served by a new patio that appears with the demolition of a vaulted ceiling.

They also serve: Forces Sauces raise funds for veterans’ charities

first_img Two forces charities are to receive funds from the sale of Forces Sauces, which went on sale in Tesco this week. Corporal Ketchup and Brigadier Brown both come in 500ml bottles and are aiming to steal a march on competitors and to rank alongside other popular table sauces.Sales of each bottle, which come in a distinctive soldier shape and bear the words ‘Serve with pride’, will generate at least 6p for the two charities, which will share the proceeds equally. Bottles are on sale for £2.19 RRP.Veteran Bob Barrett came up with the idea of Forces Sauces in 2004. At that time, he turned for support to Stoll (formerly Sir Oswald Stoll Foundation), which enables vulnerable and disabled ex-Servicemen and women to live as independently as possible. This support includes apprenticeships, aided by the Royal British Legion. These have included chefs, whose culinary skills are now set to generate income to develop programmes that can change even more lives. Forces Sauces was his way of giving back to the charity that had helped him.

Obama’s visit to Hiroshima

first_imgPresident Barack Obama’s visit to Hiroshima, Japan, on May 27 will be the first such visit by a U.S. president in office. This visit has a historical background and a present meaning; it will have a pacifist facade while the U.S. prepares for imperialist war. Obama’s visit comes nearly 71 years after one U.S. atomic bomb in one flash destroyed 60 percent of the city and its people.A brief historyWorld War II broke out in the Pacific in December 1941 after decades of competition between the imperialists of Japan and the U.S. for domination of the markets, raw materials and labor power of Asia.Millions of workers and farmers fought in that war, which served only the interests of the super-rich. The war’s casualties included workers and farmers of China, Korea, Southeast Asia, the Philippines and the islands that are now Indonesia. Japan occupied these areas and later fought against U.S. troops as well as national liberation movements. Both Japanese and U.S. troops were casualties, as were millions of Japanese civilians who lived in 68 city centers that U.S. incendiary bombs reduced to ashes.The war’s final victims were the 100,000-plus Japanese people killed instantly by atomic bombs in the cities of Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, and Nagasaki on Aug. 9. Along with them were 30,000 Koreans the Japanese army had forced to work there, plus another 100,000 people who died slowly from radiation poisoning. The war in Asia was nearly over. Washington’s purpose for using these terrible weapons at the very end was to intimidate the Soviet Union — by showing that U.S. imperialism had the military means to dominate the post-war world.Tokyo soon after surrendered to the U.S., which then occupied Japan. Despite the enormous U.S. military and economic advantages in 1945, however, the Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese revolutions went on to liberate much of Asia from imperialist control.Fast forward to May 2016According to the April 16 Military Times, “U.S. Forces Japan consists of about 2,000 soldiers, 6,000 sailors, 15,000 airmen and Air Force civilians, and about 18,000 Marines, who are mostly based in Okinawa.” On tiny Okinawa, which Japan claims despite a strong independence movement, the local population holds massive protests against the U.S. military and its crimes, from environmental destruction to rape.The May 12 New York Times reported that Obama’s talk in Japan would plead for no future use of nuclear weapons — although he would avoid condemning the U.S. bombing of Hiroshima. In a visit filled with contradictions and doublespeak, President Obama comes not as a world peacemaker, but as U.S. imperialism’s commander in chief. Behind the peaceful facade is the so-called U.S. “pivot to Asia.”Even at its peak of power in 1945, the U.S. couldn’t unilaterally dominate the world. Relatively weaker now, but still possessing enormous destructive power, Washington’s “pivot to Asia” means strengthening its alliance with the ruling class of Japan so that, under U.S. leadership, the two imperialist powers can intimidate, threaten and even make war against China and north Korea, the DPRK.The Japanese rulers, as represented by the right-wing Shinzō Abe government, have accepted U.S. insistence for increased militarization as their own policy. The Abe government has already approved plans to allow Japan’s “Self-Defense Force” to intervene abroad, despite massive popular opposition. Washington has urged this policy on Tokyo, just as it urges its NATO allies to spend more on arms.Despite its doublespeak on worldwide nuclear disarmament, the Obama administration has already pushed to modernize the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile, with plans to spend as much as $1 trillion over three decades.Disguised as a move for peace, the visit to Hiroshima is really a showpiece to consecrate an aggressive imperialist alliance.In response to Obama’s trip and in solidarity with the Okinawan and Japanese people, the WWP presidential campaign demands that the U.S. take all its troops and bases out of Japan and Okinawa. WWP pledges solidarity with and support for the struggle of the Japanese people to reverse the aggressive arming of Japan’s military.In solidarity with the other peoples of Asia, WWP demands the withdrawal of U.S. military forces from all countries and territories in the Asia-Pacific region.WWP calls upon the working classes of the U.S. and Japan to strengthen their mutual solidarity against the imperialist bosses of both countries. We in the U.S. pledge to fight all military or economic aggression by U.S. imperialism throughout Asia and to put an end to anti-Asian bigotry at home.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Interfaith group hopes to pass religious accommodation policy

first_img Previous articleMen’s basketball upsets No. 7 West Virginia, 82-73Next articleDutch’s Hamburgers looks to begin renovations Ryan Myers RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR printMany school breaks are centered around Christian holidays like Christmas and Easter. But what if you’re not a Christian? “I’d rather come on the Dec. 25th than miss my holiday,” senior biology major and Muslim, Sijil Patet said.Patet is the president of TCU’s interfaith group, Better Together, and is leading the charge with the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life to pass a religious accommodation policy. The goal of this policy is to allow students to observe their religious holy days without penalty, as long as they give their professors proper notice. Their draft asks for at least a two weeks notice to be given to professors. Many schools across the nation already have a policy similar to the one that is being proposed by RSL. SMU has had a similar policy for many years. The university’s chaplain, Dr. Stephen Rankin, said the policy allows the university to accommodate people of all religious beliefs. “The main reason for the policy is to make sure students have access to practicing their faith,” Rankin said.The idea of the policy has been floating around in RSL for a few years, but Patel got the ball rolling after she was denied an official absence for Eid, one of the two major Muslim holidays. She took the hit on her participation grade and said she was grateful that she didn’t have a lab or she would have been forced to attend. Britt Luby, associate chaplain, said that she loves seeing when students get involved in initiatives like this. She compared what she is seeing with the religious accommodation policy to that of last year’s movement to make TCU tobacco-free. “If I want to see things change at TCU, students have to want to do it,” Luby said. “It doesn’t matter what I think or what I want. The school is for the students.”Campus Life only grants official university absences to those who are representing the university, such as athletes playing in a game or the speech and debate team competing in a competition. Campus Life leaves issues of accommodating students who wish to take a religious holiday off to the professors. Michael Russel, the Dean of Campus Life, said that they hardly see any problems with this and that teachers are usually accommodating.“I’ve never heard of a student running into trouble, and I’ve been here for over 25 years,” he said.  Russel said that Patet’s situation was unusual and that he would like to talk to her to learn more about what happened to her specifically.The university only takes one Christian holiday off during the academic calendar, Good Friday. Every other Christian holiday either falls on a weekend or during a break.Russel said he understands the hypocrisy in taking Good Friday off, but his main concern is which holidays are given an official absence and which ones aren’t.TCU is trying to market itself as a diverse campus, which includes religious diversity. TCU has become a more diverse campus over the past 5 years, growing its non-Christian population by 17 percent. Patet said these people are important and should be able to celebrate their religious holidays if they want to.“TCU advocates that they want to be all-inclusive and promote a global mindset,” she said. “You can’t do that if you don’t let people act on their beliefs.”Non-Christian Population at TCUVenngage InfographicsWhat do Other Schools Do?SMU’s religious holiday policy goes beyond students and encompasses all members of the university. Students must notify professors in writing by the 12th day of the semester if they plan on missing a class for a religious holiday. Rankin said this is to make sure students don’t abuse the policy to get extra time to study for a test at the last minute.Ted Legatski, Chair of the TCU faculty senate and professor in the Neeley School of Business, said that he sees the value of having a religious accommodation policy, even if it was rival SMU’s idea.“I’m not in the habit of praising SMU, but I think their policy appears reasonable,” Legatski said. “I would definitely support a policy that emphasizes our recognition of and respect for people of all faiths as valued and equal members of the Horned Frog family.”There is no official timeline for when RSL will propose their policy to SGA and Faculty Senate, but they hope to start their presentations next semester. + posts Ryan Myers ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Ryan is a junior double majoring in journalism and history from Little Elm, Texas.

Limerick Fianna Fail protest over election convention

Then, on March 1, they were told Mr O’Brien would not be added to the ticket.The Adare/ Rathkeale electoral area members also claim that the party created a false district known as the ‘Askeaton Estuary’ District and pitted Cllr Kevin Sheahan against Emmett O’Brien in a “sham election” where only 81 delegates had a vote and they could only vote for either Cllr Sheahan or Mr O’Brien.“Over the past two months we have tried to address our concerns with Michael Moynihan, Chairman of the National Constituency Commission. We wanted answers and an apology for what the members of Fianna Fail endured at the convention”, the Adare/Rathkeale members explained in a statement last week.“The consequences of Fianna Fail headquarters colluding with partisan local organisations will deprive Fianna Fail members of their democratic voice. There is no democracy in Fianna Fail and we have been left with no choice but to resort to this picket,” they explained.Meanwhile, Emmett O’Brien commented, “It’s appalling to treat members with such contempt and to mislead ordinary decent people.” Facebook WhatsApp Twitter Brendan O’Connor announced as new General Manager of Adare Manor Advertisement RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Printcenter_img Email TAGSAdareFianna FáilMusic LimerickRathkeale Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick NewsPoliticsLimerick Fianna Fail protest over election conventionBy Alan Jacques – March 13, 2014 1029 Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday Linkedin Irish Water and Limerick City & County Council are working to restore water supply to customers in Adare following a burst water main #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boylast_img read more

The Court stated that it was a “misplaced interpretation” of law by the University to demand that though the petitioner’s name was being changed in 2019, he must first also get certificates issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in 2018, changed. Holding the University’s interpretation of the law as untenable, the Court said that, “a meaningful interpretation” had to be given to the Notifications dated 01.07.2015 and 16.12.2015 and the Resolution of Executive Council, so that they do not seek or do “not direct the petitioner to perform an impossible task.” The facts of the case are that Rayaan Singh, the petitioner, is a 20-year old 3rd year student pursuing B.A.(Hons.) Philosophy at Hindu College, which is affiliated to the Delhi University. Born on 30.06.2000, he was named ‘Rayaan Singh’ by his parents, Ms.Payal Chawla and Mr.Mandeep Singh and passed out from Modern School, Barakhambha Road, New Delhi, which is affiliated to CBSE, with the same name. ‘Rayaan Singh’ was also the name on which certificates were issued by CBSE for the 10th and 12th Class. He then joined Hindu College in B.A.(Hons.) Philosophy affiliated with Delhi University with the same name. The petitioner stated that he wanted to give up his paternal surname and change his name to Rayaan Chawla, as he had never enjoyed any form of constructive relationship with his father and was raised by his mother and maternal grandparents. Further, the petitioner had been in sole custody of his mother since 2007, when his parents had separated, till he attained majority, with his father having given up his natural guardianship. In the process of name change the petitioner stated that DU officials had returned his application citing non-compliance with the notification dated 1.7.2015 read with notification dated 16.12.2015, according to which, it was said to be mandatory for the students desirous of seeking change of name to get their name changed from CBSE/other State Boards first. It was also stated that CBSE considers name change applications only before publication of result of the candidate. Therefore, the petitioner had moved this court. DU opposed the petition stating that, its Executive Council was a statutory body whose resolutions have the force of law, and that getting the name changed from CBSE/State Boards first was mandatory, and that with his parents having been divorced in 2015, and while appearing for his 10th and 12th Boards, the petitioner was in knowledge of the law and could not be allowed to impugn it now. DU further stated that, “The petitioner cannot have two different names i.e. Rayaan Singh for 10th and 12 Class Certificates and Rayaan Chawla for the graduation degree. The University of Delhi has put this condition so as to maintain continuity and uniformity in the educational credentials of a student.” Relying on the judgment of the Kerala High Court in Kailash Gupta v. CBSE, 2020 SCC OnLine Ker 1590, the Delhi High Court held that, “to have a name and to express the same in the manner he wishes, is a part of the right to freedom of speech and expression under Article 19 (1) (a) as well as right to liberty under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. It cannot be denied that the right to change a name is a protected right and the petitioner would normally be not denied the said right on technical issues.” Further relying on the case of Abhishek Kumar v. Union of India & Ors., 2014 SCC OnLine Del 3459, the Court ruled in favour of the petitioner and said that the demand by DU to first get the name changed in the records of CBSE/Certificates issued by CBSE is a misplaced demand as it would create a discrepancy and reflect a status which did not exist at the time of issuance of the original certificates, and that the change of name could not be with retrospective effect.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Photograph captures married nurses, in protective gear, sharing tender moment

first_imgNicole Hubbard, TeamHealth Chief Nurse Anesthetist(NEW YORK) — It’s a powerful image from the front lines: A married couple of nurse anesthetists, pausing for a moment together, before they moved to the next surgery at Florida’s Tampa General Hospital.In the photo, Mindy and Ben Cayer are wearing vital protective gear and holding each other while in the intensive care unit.Their team has the high-risk job of placing breathing tubes in patients, any of whom could have COVID-19.The two met in nursing school at Union University in Tennessee in 2007, thanks to being seated in alphabetical order — Mindy’s maiden name is Brock — and graduated together. They married and began working side-by-side as well as commuting to work together.The day that the photograph was taken by TeamHealth chief nurse anesthetist Nicole Hubbard, new COVID-19 procedures had recently been put in place and the mood was tense, Ben Cayer said.“We were kinda bickering about foolish stuff, what was on the radio … you know, stuff like that. … I was complaining that she hadn’t done the dishes,” he told ABC News on Friday. ,Before they came together in that photograph, they’d each intubated several patients in rooms right next to each other. When they got a break in their duties, Ben Cayer said, he found Mindy so they could talk.He said that when the photograph was taken, the two were discussing how they had never gone through anything like the COVID-19 crisis before and were both feeling anxious.“All that stuff that we were arguing about really didn’t matter, you know, in the car. It didn’t matter in the whole scheme of things and we were just really happy and grateful that we were able to serve together as a couple,” Ben Cayer told ABC News on Friday.Mindy Cayer said that shift, wearing that new protective gear, lasted 12 hours.“It was just mentally draining for us,” Ben Cayer said. “We were like, ‘Wow, this is our new norm at the end of the day.’”Mindy Cayer said that it helped immensely having Ben in the hospital.“Honestly if you’re not there, in the situation, it’s very hard to comprehend all the feelings and, you know, I guess the stress level that you’re going through. And he gets it,” she said.Unfortunately, COVID-19 has hit close to home for the couple. Mindy Cayer’s mother, Sandra, tested positive for the deadly virus, but she is currently doing OK.“I haven’t seen them since Christmas,” Mindy Cayer told ABC News on Friday. “And I’m ready for this to be over so I can actually go see them without being worried that I would infect them.”They shared with ABC News the message they hoped the image of the two of them together got across.“[If] we just stick together, we’re stronger together,” Ben Cayer said. “If we care about each other, then we’re going to get through this.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
