Coachhouse comprises a two-story brick building that was originally constructed as a garage between 1907 and 1911. It was historically associated with the adjacent mansion built in 1905, the rear of which is visible in the context photos. Coachhouse is situated on an alley and a major avenue — Florida Avenue — with a courtyard between the building and the street. Save this picture!Before. Image © John ColeSave this picture!© John ColeMeasuring only approximately 25’ x 22’ in plan, the building is of robust load bearing masonry and wood frame construction. It was converted to residential use and subdivided to be on its own lot prior to designation of the historic district in which it resides in the 1980s. Save this picture!© John ColeThe building is set back from the property line with its courtyard enclosed by a 6’ high brick wall; a second lower brick wall separated a parking space from the sidewalk. Coachhouse, in orientation and distance, is fully removed from the avenue on which it sits. Further, it has no rear yard nor windows on the rear property line, thus it is dependent on the alley and the avenue for light and view. Save this picture!© John ColeThe building’s context is defined by the alley and rear elevations of large townhouses facing 22nd Street and R Street which range in height between three and five stories. In its existing condition, Coachhouse was dwarfed by its context.Save this picture!SectionOur client came to us with the goal of making Coachhouse their home. Their program required one more floor. Working through Zoning and the Historic Preservation Review Board, we gained permission to add one floor. Design goals for Coachhouse included the following. Save this picture!© John Cole1. Follow the principle of the second man, recalling Coachhouse’s allegiance to its neighbor by mirroring the neighbor’s configuration of solid mass and sleeping porch. 2. Enhance the diminutive scale of Coachhouse in the neighborhood and on the avenue, and give it presence where it had little to none before.  3. Create a home whose character marries its several identities — part coachhouse, raw and exposed; part repository for the homeowner’s extensive and eclectic object collections; and part modern sleeping porch.  4. Bring light in along the west windowless party wall through the creation of a skylit stair zone.  5. Address the foreground of Coachhouse with a redesigned courtyard, and drive. Embrace a sustainable agenda including the adaptive reuse of the building, onsite stormwater management under the courtyard, an efficient building envelope, all LED lighting, and a green roof.Project gallerySee allShow lessSunshine Insurance Finance Plaza / Woods BagotSelected ProjectsSOM to Design 2 Skyscrapers on Former Chicago Spire SiteArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/894333/coach-house-gardner-architects Clipboard Coach House / Gardner Architects Coach House / Gardner ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCoach House / Gardner Architects Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/894333/coach-house-gardner-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeGardner ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentWashingtonUnited StatesPublished on May 15, 2018Cite: “Coach House / Gardner Architects” 15 May 2018.

The new fund will enable charities to build on their programmes over a longer period of time to provide a more sustainable path forward.The Ex-prisoners Continuation Programme will be open to qualifying charities which have received Lloyds TSB Foundation funding from 2005 to 2007. Applications are by invitation only. Qualifying charities will be able to apply for grants of up to three years with a minimum grant of £20,000.Linda Kelly, chief executive at the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales, explained: “Our evaluation raised an important issue that for charities working with ex-prisoners a longer-term funding commitment is required to enable a difference to be made for individual beneficiaries and the continued work of the charity.”www.lloydstsbfoundations.org.uk Tagged with: Funding About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Public media independence threatened, despite government denials

first_img November 20, 2020 Find out more December 17, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Public media independence threatened, despite government denials TaiwanAsia – Pacific Organisation RSF to Taiwanese President: “Taiwan urgently needs media reform to tackle disinformation” Reporters Without Borders urges President Ma Ying-jeou to keep his promises to us to respect public media independence. He wrote in a letter to our secretary-general: “We believe that accusations of this administration’s interference in Taiwan’s media are based on some wrong information or misunderstandings.” But the organisation has had disturbing reports of ruling Kuomintang party decisions undermining the independence of the public media.”Taiwan should be a press freedom model in Asia and the independence of the public media is one of the key components of a free and diverse press system,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We want to believe in President Ma’s promises but they must be translated into action.”The organisation added: “We are aware that political pressure on the public media is not new and existed under the previous government but it is vital that, regardless of political party debate, the media should have a favourable legislative and political environment. We urge the president to order a probe into the various accusations of meddling and to set up mechanisms that guarantee media independence.”In reply to a letter from Jean-François Julliard, the new Reporters Without Borders secretary-general, President Ma wrote that his government “will never attempt to control or interfere in the activities of the media.” He added: “The ROC (Taiwanese) government is fully aware of the indispensable role that freedom of the press has played in the consolidation of our democracy (…) Both Taiwan’s governing party and the opposition cherish the freedom our people enjoy.”In his letter, at the end of October, Julliard had requested an explanation for recent cases of political pressure on the state media, above all on Radio Taiwan International (RTI) and the Central News Agency (CNA). Julliard wrote: “Reporters Without Borders has been told that some officials used to be in the habit of calling journalists to ask them to rewrite stories. Nowadays, officials try to exert a more general control by appointing leading government supporters to run them.”The chairman and some ten other senior members of the Public Television Service Foundation (PTSF) – which oversees the Public Television Service (PTS), Hakka Television, Indigenous Television and China Television Service – issued a statement on 10 December condemning the ruling Kuomintang’s attempts to control these media and calling for their independence to be guaranteed.The Kuomintang’s campaign to reaffirm its influence over the public TV stations seems to have strengthened since parliament’s decision to freeze half of the PTSF’s budget. At the same time, two parliamentary committees decided that the programming of Hakka Television, Taiwan Macroview Television and Indigenous Television should be subject to review by the entities concerned by their content. The Kuomintang legislators within this committee also called for the TPBS (Taiwan Broadcasting System or Public Television Service) budget to be conditioned on agreement with the Government Information Office (GIO) about content.Influential Kuomintang lawmakers also proposed amending the public television law without a view to having a supervisory council controlled by the ruling party. According to several sources, legislator Lin Yi-shih said he would like to get rid of the outspoken “PTS News Talk” show.Parliament, in which the Kuomintang has a majority, decided in October to appoint six new members to the PTS’s supervisory board.After Ma’s election, RTI’s chairman resigned in protest against GIO interference. CNA deputy editor-in-chief Chuang Feng-chia also resigned after condemning internal censorship on various subjects, including the president of China. He told Reporters Without Borders that the news agency “belongs to the country and not the Kuomintang.” This was a few days after President Ma’s campaign director was appointed as the CNA’s deputy chairman.In a letter to Julliard, the head of the GIO’s International Information Department, Manfred Peng, denied any interference and accused the RTI and CNA officials of manipulating their reasons for resigning. He insisted that the GIO just conveyed listener comments to RTI’s management without issuing any directives about content.Chen Hsiao-yi of the Association of Taiwan Journalists told Reporters Without Borders that “interference has always existed and the parties always tend to put their friends in positions at the head of the state media.”RTI and CNA were in the past all directly controlled by the Kuomintang but, under President Lee Teng-hui (1988-2000), the state media were granted editorial independence and their funding was guaranteed as part of the GIO’s budget. Article 11 of the public television law says that public television “belongs to all citizens and its operations must be independent and autonomous, and free of any interference.” Follow the news on Taiwan Receive email alerts to go further TaiwanAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information center_img News Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage RSF_en News May 18, 2020 Find out more Taiwan: the non-renewal of CTi news channel’s licence does not go against press freedom News June 29, 2020 Find out more Newslast_img read more

Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHE Housing Department at Limerick City and County Council was accused of being “all over the shop” as it came under fire from councillors this week.At Monday’s monthly meeting of the local authority, Former Mayor Liam Galvin proposed that the Housing Department be managed by one director. The Fine Gael councillor claimed the current system, which sees the housing section divided into five key sections, was not working.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “It is not working for the public representatives and from a public point of view,” Cllr Liam Galvin told the council executive.He maintained that staff in the Housing Department are “not quite as happy as I’d like them to be” and complained that there is “too much to-ing and fro-ing” within the current process.“There are derelict houses in Newcastle West district sitting idle two, three, four years. It is not acceptable. It beggars belief that they have not been allocated. The system is getting too complicated. It is getting out of hand. I’d ask you to take a serious look at it and bring it under the one directorate,” he asked.Jerome Scanlan, Fine Gael. Photo: Cian ReinhardtParty colleague Cllr Jerome Scanlan, who maintained that the Housing Section was not as “efficient” as it was under the former Limerick County Council, seconded Cllr Liam Galvin’s motion.“We are all over the shop. There are 40 Council houses in our municipal area of Newcastle West and some of them have been vacant for up to three years. People are desperate to get houses,” Cllr  Jerome Scanlan declared.Fianna Fáil councillor Kevin Sheahan said he would be telling lies if he didn’t admit that he found the Council’s Housing Department “nothing short of excellent”.“It is a nuisance to have to go into the city. That is the only complaint I have. I find it excellent. I have a personable and strong relationship with them. We don’t have a right to dictate how to structure any section of the staff,” the Askeaton man added.Council chief executive Pat Daly said that the executive is currently looking at a single point of contact for housing issues.“I am confident that this will help us to be more streamlined,” he added.

In our view, it would only be just and appropriate not to dispose of the PIL Petition at this stage and to await further orders that might be passed by the Hon’ble Supreme Court in respect of migrant labours”, the bench ordered.A Division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Anuja Prabhudessai was hearing a PIL filed by Centre For Indian Trade Unions and others pointing out the plight of migrants workers in the State who have been left stranded and are forced to live unhygienic conditions during this pandemic. The bench referred to the Supreme Court’s order dated July 9 wherein the top court expressed displeasure over the State’s reluctance to file a detailed affidavit in a suo motu case regarding the plight of migrant workers and observed : “On a reading thereof, it appears that the order is specific to the State of Maharashtra. The Hon’ble Supreme Court expressed its displeasure at the State’s reluctance to find out whether there are migrant labourers, stranded in Maharashtra, who are willing to leave for their hometown.” The Supreme Court has sought the State’s response in a detailed affidavit. The next date of hearing before the apex court is July 17, 2020. Previously, when the petitioners contended that migrant workers have been left in the dark over applications for travelling in Shramik Trains started by the Railways for movement of these workers to their native places during the lockdown, State government told the High Court that currently there is no demand from migrant workers for shramik trains. Appearing for the petitioners, Senior Advocate Gayatri Singh on Tuesday submitted that the state’s contention that there is no demand for shramik trains currently by the migrant workers was incorrect. Moreover, the petitioner Union has got in touch with several migrant workers and learnt that there are almost 56,000 labourers who still wish to travel back to their native place. Many of these labourers are from West Bengal, Singh said. To this, Chief Justice Dipankar Datta, who was permanent judge of Calcutta High Court for 14 year before being appointed Chief Justice in April, retorted- “Do you know the situation in West Bengal? The state government at one point did not permit migrants to return home, we do not want to say anything against anyone but the situation was not handled properly.” Moreover, Advocate General AA Kumbhakoni submitted that the last time a train left for West Bengal it did not have too many migrant labourers on board. The matter will now be listed for hearing in the first week of August.  Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The said provision, inter alia provides that the Magistrate or the police officer, as the case may be, shall record the statement as spoken by the child in the presence of the parents of the child or any other person in whom the child has trust or confidence. A Single Bench of Justice Sanjeev Prakash Sharma has thus ordered the Magistrate to allow the IO’s application seeking re-recording of the prosecutrix’s statement in the presence of her parents. It further directed that in future, as and when a case relating to POCSO Act comes up before any Magistrate, they are bound to follow the provisions of Section 26 of the POCSO Act while recording the statements under Section 164 CrPC at the first instance. The case pertains to two teenage girls who were allegedly abducted and raped by two youths in Baran district of Rajasthan. As per a report of India Today, the girls’ father told the police that the two accused lured his minor daughters, aged 13 and 15, on the night of September 18 to leave Baran with them. They were taken to Kota, Jaipur and Ajmer and were allegedly raped for three days. The family alleged the girls were threatened not to file a complaint. They were found in Kota on September 21. The Police however said that the girls in their statements before the Magistrate had “accepted” that they had gone with the boys on their own and that a medical examination had not confirmed rape. It is in this backdrop that the Investigating Officer in the case had moved an application before the Magistrate for getting statements under section 164 CrPC recorded of the minor prosecutrix in terms of section 26 of the POCSO Act in the presence of the parents. The Judicial Magistrate had however refused to accept the application against which revision was filed before the District & Sessions Judge, Baran who also rejected the revision vide order dated October 20, 2020. Before the High Court, it was submitted that the earlier statement recorded under Section 164 CrPC was not in accordance with the provisions of the POCSO Act and therefore, the IO had a right to get the statements of the prosecutrix recorded again. It was submitted that that mere apprehension that there might be lot number of such applications being moved by the concerned IO and there is a possibility of the concerned prosecutrix being tutored, cannot be a ground for rejecting such an application. The application was also supported by the Public Prosecutor who submitted that that once an IO has moved an application, it should be allowed. At this juncture, the High Court referred to Jogendra Nahak & Ors. v. State of Orissa & Ors., (2000) 1 SCC 272, and ruled “it is exclusive domain of the IO alone to move an application for getting statement recorded of any witness u/s 164 Cr.P.C. On moving such an application, the Magistrate will have to get the statement recorded”. Reliance was also placed on Lada Devi v. State of Rajasthan, whereby taking into consideration the overall circumstances, the High Court had directed the concerned IO to get the statement of the girl-prosecutrix again recorded by moving an application under Section 164 CrPC before the concerned Judicial Magistrate. The Single Judge said, “In the present case also, the circumstances show that the prosecutrix, who are minor in age, have not given their statements in terms of Section 26 of the POCSO Act. Provisions of POCSO Act are mandatory in nature. In view, thereof, the application moved by the Investigating Officer could not have been rejected on the grounds which do not germane from the facts.
