This house is for a residence and a studio of the percussion musician. Four plots are arrayed facing one another alongside two streets and in two houses on each plot parents and grandmother of the musician are already reside. Two plots are still empty and on two empty plots, houses would be planned. Save this picture!© Kim jong ohWe started from the placement of this house as a part of the masterplan based in the idea that one individual house on each and every plot. Eventually four houses for 3 generation were arranged around a courtyard in the center. Each house were consist of a low pitched roof on the first floor gathering toward the courtyard and a mass -placed on the upper floor of the low pitched roof – at the corner side toward the street.  Save this picture!© Kim jong ohThe pitched roof on the first floor is rising toward the street side and it is automatically connected to the mass on the second floor. On that mass, private rooms are placed and under the pitched roof, there are studios and living room. Studios for practicing and recording were given an open characteristic by placing them next to the inner courtyard and street since there might be frequent visitor access. We placed the living room between the studios and the private rooms to act as a loose connection.Save this picture!PlanThe structure and interior of the house is mainly wooden, since the sound was the most important factor while considering the proper structure. Two elements are creating a relationship between the performance place and the courtyard, one is a long and low –height is 2.2m- opening toward the courtyard, and the other one is a sufficient –depth is 1.8m- awning continues along the front facade. In addition we set a wooden folding door –it serves for a visual depth- on the inner side of the long and low opening for controlling the sound reflection of glass. We set a skylight at the meeting point of the pitched roof and the upper mass for the effective penetration of the natural light to deep space. And also, the cube formed mass and pitched roof were separated.     Save this picture!© Kim jong ohThe cube formed mass on the second floor was consisted of rooms and terrace with a high density which is a clear contrast of spacious 1st floor. And orange-colored dry bit was applied on the exterior of this mass considering the most frequently used material in the neighborhood, the brick.  Save this picture!PlanThe fence as a boundary between the street and site is emphasizing vertical line by 10mm thick iron flat bar with 100mm interval which are aliened in diverse height reacting sometimes to the mass of the house and sometimes to the courtyard for solving opening and privacy at the same time. Save this picture!© Kim jong ohExperiencing the unique sequence of space from street, courtyard, studio, living room on the first floor, terrace on the upper floor and finally to the dramatically opened roof top might provide rich architectural images not only to the residents but also to the visitors –mostly musicians-Save this picture!© Kim jong ohProject gallerySee allShow lessShed Roof House / Hiroki Tominaga-AtelierSelected ProjectsSydney Park Water Re-Use Project / Turf Design Studio, Environmental Partnership, Al…Selected Projects Share South Korea Save this picture!© Kim jong oh+ 18 Share 2015 Projects Marimba House / ISON ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMarimba House / ISON Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/793708/marimba-house-ison-architects Clipboard Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/793708/marimba-house-ison-architects Clipboard Photographs CopyHouses•Seoul, South Korea Manufacturers: FILOBE, Stucoflex Construction: STUGA “COPY” Area:  369 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Kim jong oh Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Marimba House / ISON Architectslast_img read more

According to Chris Coe, Oxfam’s trading director, this still represents only 2.5% of the total £14.7 billion that will be spent at Christmas, so the market could still grow.Oxfamunwrapped.com has enjoyed a major rise in traffic over the past three weeks, according to independent monitor Hitwise UK. The site jumped 315 places from 495th in the week ending 19 November to 180th in the week ending 10 December.This jump means “unprecedented market share” for the charity’s trading site, according to Hitwise UK. “For the week ending December 10, market share of visits to the site were up 244% year-on-year, with the site also taking the #1 ranking within the Community – Humanitarian category for the first time”, reports Hitwise.Indeed, Oxfam Unwrapped is “performing well” against mainstream retailers as well. In 2004 the site peaked at a ranking of 369th based on visits to Hitwise UK’s Shopping & Classifieds category for the week ending 18 December 2004, whilst this year the site had already climbed to rank 180th for the week ending 10 December 2005.center_img Tagged with: Digital Research / statistics Trading About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

We, therefore, find it appropriate to constitute a Special Committee comprising of the following Secretaries at national, as well as State, level to look into the prevailing circumstances and immediately determine the necessity of the continuation of the restrictions in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir”, the SC had observed.Even after such directions, the internet restrictions in Jammu and Kashmir were extended , without the formation of Special Committee, states the plea.This, according to FMP, amounts to “wilful disobedience” of the SC directions.The contempt petition, filed on June 9, is getting listed for admission tomorrow.After the SC verdict of May 11, the J&K administration extended the internet curbs thrice – on May 27, June 17 and July 8 – citing threat of cross-border terrorism. The administration also claimed that 2G internet speed has not caused any impediment to COVID-19 control steps, online education or e-commerce.Along with the contempt plea, FMP has also filed an application for immediate restoration of 4G services in the region, stating that the denial of the same amid the pandemic and lockdown has resulted in disrupting medical services, online education and e-commerce activities.The Central government had imposed a complete communications blackout in the erstwhile state of J&K in August 2019, right after abrogation of Article 370. Five months later in January 2020, on the basis of a Supreme Court order, the services were partially restored, only at 2G speed for mobile users. Access was provided only to a selected “white-listed” sites, and social media was completely blocked.The Supreme Court had observed that indefinite suspension of internet is not permissible and restrictions on internet have to follow the principles of proportionality under Article 19(2).The blockade on social media was lifted on March 4, but the speed was retained as 2G for mobile data.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Mom traveling with 6 kids kicked off flight after 2-year-old refuses to wear mask

first_imgskyNext/iStockBy MINA KAJI, GIO BENITEZ, and SAM SWEENEY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A mother and her six children were kicked off of a JetBlue Airways flight Wednesday after her 2-year-old daughter refused to wear a mask.“It was extremely traumatizing for me and my family,” the mother, Chaya Bruck, 39, from Brooklyn, said in an interview with ABC News.Bruck said she tried to put a mask on her youngest child, Dina, but she pulled it off.“Should I tie her hands, what should I do?” Bruck asked the JetBlue flight attendant according to a video of the incident. “We have to deplane,” the attendant responded, explaining that the airline has a zero tolerance policy.Other passengers onboard the flight to New York from Orlando attempted to stick up for Bruck, according to the video and passengers.“All of the passengers were up, screaming, and hollering saying ‘that’s not fair, don’t do that to that mother,’” passenger Anny Taveras, from Kissimmee, Florida, told ABC News. The flight eventually took off after everyone deplaned.U.S. airlines continue to strengthen their mask requirements, and have even banned passengers who don’t comply.JetBlue, along with most major airlines, requires any child age 2 and over to wear a face covering in order to fly, the airline said in a statement.A JetBlue spokesperson said the airline’s policy was last updated on Aug. 10 “to ensure everyone is wearing a face covering — adults and children alike” and is consistent with CDC guidelines, which say children under 2 should not wear masks.However, Taveras and Bruck claim that during the announcements, the flight attendant said children who cannot wear a mask are exempt.Another passenger, Chardette Poinsette, who was traveling with her young son, claims her family was also kicked off the flight.“I stuck up for her, and I think I was the one who stood out the most because what I was saying was correct,” Poinsette said.MORE: Airlines may ban passengers who refuse to wear masksBoth Bruck and Poinsette’s families flew home on different U.S. airlines.“I need some time to recover from this,” Bruck said. “My kids need to recover from this.”ABC News’ Amanda Maile and Jennifer Leong contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Ineffective use of ECDIS led to Australian cutter grounding

first_img View post tag: ATSB View post tag: Cutter View post tag: Roebuck Bay navaltoday Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today ATSB: Ineffective ECDIS use led to Australian cutter reef grounding The ineffective crew training about the use of onboard electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) might have led to the grounding of the Australian Border Force cutter Roebuck Bay, a new investigation shows.In September 2017, the ABFC Roebuck Bay grounded on Henry Reef in the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland. The cutter was on a passage from Saibai Island in the Torres Strait Islands archipelago bound for Lizard Island, located about 71 NM south-east of Cape Melville.The ship sustained substantial damages but there were no reported injuries or oil pollution. It was subsequently towed off the reef, stabilized and towed to Cairns.The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) has now released its final report from its investigation into the incident.The ATSB investigation has revealed underlying safety issues with the effectiveness of ECDIS type-specific training, ECDIS software updates and the use of a single point feature to represent relatively large physical features on electronic navigational charts.While planning the passage from Saibai Island, the ABFC Roebuck Bay’s previously used passage plan was amended, with its route inadvertently plotted over Henry Reef.The ship’s EDCIS identified the reef as a danger to the planned route, however, the crew did not identify the danger either visually or by using ECDIS. The vessel continued on the amended route and grounded on the reef.“The ATSB found the crew’s ability to check the amended route was limited as their training was not effective in preparing them for the operational use of their on board ECDIS,” ATSB said.The federal government body’s investigation highlights that the safe and effective use of ECDIS as the primary means of navigation depends on operators being thoroughly familiar with the operation, functionality, capabilities and limitations of the specific equipment in use on board their vessel.“ECDIS type-specific training needs to be designed, delivered and undertaken so operators have the required knowledge to confidently operate ECDIS as intended by the manufacturer,” Greg Hood, ATSB Chief Commissioner, said.The ATSB also found the vessel’s ECDIS was not updated to the latest International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) standards and lacked the enhanced safety features of a new presentation library of symbology.“As a result of the investigation, the ATSB considers the use of point features in electronic navigational charts to represent areas of relatively significant size on the earth’s surface is likely to increase the risk of the hazard posed by such features being misinterpreted and potentially reduce the effectiveness of ECDIS safety checking functions,” Hood added.“While this did not specifically contribute to the grounding of Roebuck Bay, the investigation has shown that the implementation of ECDIS has introduced some unintended risks to marine navigation.” View post tag: Grounding ATSB: Ineffective ECDIS use led to Australian cutter reef grounding June 28, 2019, by Share this articlelast_img read more
