From the street this inner city facade is a conspicuous one amongst its more traditional post-war clinker brick neighbours, indicating a ‘dare to be different attitude’. Extensive glazing ensures a desirable response to the city views across parkland to which it sits adjacent to. The house reflects the natural beauty of the red gums that inhabit the parkland both inside and out the home. The grey and white tones of the bushland are expressed through zinc and antique white render as well as reclaimed timber columns. The rich palette of natural timbers and stone flows from the outside in being an essential element to achieve the understated elegance of the home. Save this picture!A seamless ground plane is achieved by amalgamating the internal spaces with the exterior, creating large flowing areas in which to congregate. The Courtyard is an important element it suggests protection, which is important in Australia’s climate and internalising a space like this also allows you to engage with the exterior and interior simultaneously on all sides.

He says the realignment of community groups will cover bodies funded by Údarás na Gaeltachta, Gaeltacht-based CDPs (Community Development Projects), Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta and Comhar na nOileán.Consultation with the existing state-funded groups will take place early in the New Year, prior to any change being implemented. This will worry a number of groups, particularly as 29 CDPs have already had their funding cut by Minister O’Cuiv’s department this week, with “duplication” given as the rationale.However, Minister O’Cuiv says he believes that realigning organisations will provide coherent community structures in the Gaeltacht, and ensure that all areas are properly covered.

BCI Writes To Kerala High Court To Hold Consultations With Bar, Review/Reconsider E-Filing Rules

first_imgNews UpdatesBCI Writes To Kerala High Court To Hold Consultations With Bar, Review/Reconsider E-Filing Rules Lydia Suzanne Thomas17 May 2021 8:42 PMShare This – xThe Bar Council of India (BCI) has written to the Kerala High Court Registrar General asking the Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court to reconsider/review the E-Filing Rules notified and have discussions with representatives of the State Bar Council before finalising the Rules.The response of the BCI comes after the Chairman of the Bar Council of Kerala, Advocate Joseph John voiced reservations about the manner in which the Kerala High Court’s E-Filing Rules were implemented, and the processes involved. The Bar Council had sought a deferral on implementation of the Rules for 3-6 months, and consultations on Rules with the Bar as well as Advocate Clerks. In its letter to the Registrar General of the Kerala High Court, the BCI Chairman Ashok Kumar Pandey writes “The Chairman of the State Bar Council appears to have raised very exhaustive and valid points and has highlighted the practical difficulties, which the lawyers and their staffs are likely to face due to the introduction of the new Rules with regard to e-filing.”In these circumstances, the BCI Chairman requests the Chief Justice of Kerala High Court to reconsider/review the E-filing Rules of the High Court and “to discuss and deliberate with the representatives of State Bar Council before finalising and notifying such rules.””The patently arbitrary and hasty manner in which the e-filing rules was notified by the High Court on 12.5.2021 is blatantly whimsical, abrasive and prejudicial, affecting the interest of the entire lawyer community of more than 40,000 lawyers in Kerala”, the Bar Council of Kerala Chairman’s representation had stated. While emphasizing the Council’s support for electronic filing in so far as it makes the filing procedure more simple and convenient, the Bar Council of Kerala has expressed that the implementation of the Rules ought to have been after consultations with the Bar.Implementation of the above e-filing rules would be practically impossible for lawyers’ practising in remote areas of the state, since the rules mandate high level technological requirements and equipment that unfamiliar and alien to many lawyers. Describing the switch to e-filing as ‘drastic’, the Council has expressed that appropriate breathing space ought to have been provided, after giving training to the lawyers and ensuring appropriate infrastructure.The Kerala High Court Advocates’ Association and prominent lawyers’ organisations have also expressed their reservations to the manner in which the Rules have been implemented. The Advocate General as well as the President of the Kerala High Court Advocates’ Association met with the Kerala High Court Chief Justice on Monday to place before him concerns with respect to the e-filing Rules. The President iterated the Association’s stance recommending filing through email for the present.Over the weekend, the Association convened an extraordinary general body meeting to discuss the new e-filing rules. After the meeting on Saturday, the Association decided to protest the implementation of the e-filing rules. The General Body also resolved to abstain from all proceedings conducted by the High Court in connection with e-filing.The Association again met on Sunday, deciding not to file any case under the E-filing system introduced under the Rules. It was also unanimously resolved that members would not associate in any manner with activities concerned with the implementation of the e-filing Rules notified.On Monday, citing the absence of a favorable response from the High Court’s Administrative Committee to the concerns raised by the Association, the Association decided to go ahead with the e-filing boycott.At the same time, the meeting welcomed the move to allow physical filing. Every training program related to e – filing will be boycotted, it was resolved at the Extraordinary General Meeting held on Monday.The Kerala High Court last week notified its Electronic Filing Rules For Courts (Kerala), 2021 (Rules) for Courts across the state. The new rules prescribe e-filing for all cases in courts in Kerala. A person who is unable to access the e-filing portal is required to visit a ‘designated counter’, paying required fees. Files having a size greater than 10 MB will have to be filed at a designated counter.The Rules provide that online electronic filing shall be done for the High Court at the High Court website or a portal assigned specifically for electronic filing by the Chief Justice. Online electronic filing shall be made either at the website of the Subordinate Courts or Tribunals or at the web portal created specifically for filing in the particular courts, it is stated. The Court is permitted to allow regular filing if all other methods fail.Click here to download the letterTagsBar Council of India Kerala e-filing rules Kerala High Court Next Storylast_img read more

Recent rift formation and impact on the structural integrity of the Brunt Ice Shelf, East Antarctica

first_imgWe report on the recent reactivation of a large rift in the Brunt Ice Shelf, East Antarctica, in December 2012 and the formation of a 50 km long new rift in October 2016. Observations from a suite of ground-based and remote sensing instruments between January 2000 and July 2017 were used to track progress of both rifts in unprecedented detail. Results reveal a steady accelerating trend in their width, in combination with alternating episodes of fast ( > 600 m day−1) and slow propagation of the rift tip, controlled by the heterogeneous structure of the ice shelf. A numerical ice flow model and a simple propagation algorithm based on the stress distribution in the ice shelf were successfully used to hindcast the observed trajectories and to simulate future rift progression under different assumptions. Results show a high likelihood of ice loss at the McDonald Ice Rumples, the only pinning point of the ice shelf. The nascent iceberg calving and associated reduction in pinning of the Brunt Ice Shelf may provide a uniquely monitored natural experiment of ice shelf variability and provoke a deeper understanding of similar processes elsewhere in Antarctica.last_img read more

Take it from Olympic gold medalist Abby Wambach: ‘Accept the love you deserve’

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMike Coppola/Getty Images for The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis(NEW YORK) — Abby Wambach is the epitome of “girl power” goals. Not only is she a two-time Olympic gold medalist and a FIFA Women’s World Cup champion, but she’s also a New York Times best-selling author and an LGBT activist for equality and inclusion.Upon meeting Wambach, she looks like an athletic superstar looming over others at 5 feet, 11 inches, and with a presence and personality that are larger than life. You immediately want to be in her “Wolfpack,” which happens to be the title of her new book.“This is a book that’s not just for women, this is a book that’s also for men,” said Wambach. “I want women to feel empowered by this and I also want men to be educated by this. Women for all of time have been having to find themselves inside the works of men and I think it’s high time for men to step into learning about women.”Before Wambach could empower others, however, she had to empower herself.“People out there think that I must be the most confident human being on the planet, but for me that wasn’t always true,” she said. “Because I reached such highs as a soccer player, that brought up big fears for me as a person.”The world champ sat down with ABC News’ Good Morning America to tell us how she scored the confidence she sports today.1. Don’t let society constrain you.Wambach began her quest for breaking down boundaries well before she was a teenager. One of her first ventures out onto the soccer field was during her childhood when she played on a boy’s team.“This was just that period of time, that sweet spot where it was just about how good you were and that’s all that mattered,” Wambach told GMA.Wambach explained that it was when she was heading into puberty that she began feeling the divide between herself and the boys she once called her teammates.“The message…little boys and little girls are given about how they need to act to be approved in our culture is all B.S. if you ask me,” she said.The soccer star is out to redefine what it means to be a leader, especially for women.“Be completely empowered by who you are and what you want out of your life, not what the culture is telling you to be,” said Wambach.2. Pave your own way.Before Wambach was one of the world’s greatest soccer players, she was the world’s cutest baby.“I do believe that I am one of the cutest babies that has ever been born,” said Wambach.Wambach said she was fearless as a child.“My family had what was called the ‘Abby alert,’” she said. “I would just venture off and do whatever I wanted to do.”A mentality Wambach has continued to embrace: “I’ve always just been venturing off on my own path and paving my own way.”3. Sometimes you need luck to succeed.“This World Cup marked the end of my champion career for the Women’s national team,” said Wambach.While most might wonder if Wambach felt sad or bittersweet in this moment, she said what came over her was a resounding sense of relief.“You have expectations and goals for yourself, and for your team, and so often they’re not met,” explained Wambach. “This moment, I was just so relieved that I wasn’t going to be pissed off for the next 40 years of my life.”In a lot of ways, this wasn’t just a win for Wambach, it was the win as she closed out her career on the field.“Both teams deserve to be there and when you’re playing in a world champion environment, sometimes luck is the thing that allows your team to rise to the top,” she said.4. Accept the love you deserve.Wambach was awestruck looking at a photo from her wedding to author Glennon Doyle.“When I met Glennon, I stepped into myself for the first time,” said Wambach.Like most brides, Wambach said she was full of nerves on her her wedding day. But her fears weren’t about the flowers, the caterer or the toasts — they were about accepting the love and life she deserved.“I wanted it to be so perfect,” she said. “I had to accept the best, most beautiful, truest life that I could envision as being my actual life.”5. Don’t live your life out of fear.Along with being an author, Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion, Wambach is a mother to her wife’s three children.“It’s such a beautiful journey to have these kids and to know that who they become has something to do with you,” she said.Wambach said her own wolfpack is constantly sending her on a path of self-discovery. Her cubs make her want to live life to the fullest, she said.“The way that I want to live my life is not out of fear. I want to live it out of joy and love and respect and that kind of encapsulates this entire picture for me,” she said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

HNLMS Johan De Witt, RFA Lyme Bay Take Part in Cutlass Express Maritime Exercise

first_img HNLMS Johan De Witt, RFA Lyme Bay Take Part in Cutlass Express Maritime Exercise November 21, 2013 Share this article Training & Educationcenter_img HNLMS Johan de Witt and RFA Lyme Bay have participated in the US led international exercise ‘Cutlass Express’.The exercise, which was held in several operational areas in the waters off East Africa, is a maritime exercise, designed to improve cooperation, tactical expertise and information sharing practices among participating nations in order to increase maritime safety and security in the region.On Tuesday 12 November, a team from HNLMS Johan de Witt, together with 23 servicemen from Djibouti, Uganda, Somalia and Rwanda came together to discuss and train in evidence handling procedures, with the focus on dealing with suspected Somali pirates.Lt Jaap van den Hoed of the Royal Netherlands Navy, who was one of the participants of Cutless Express stated: “The cooperation between all participants was excellent. I think that together we made fruitful steps in enhancing the maritime security in the region. It is crucial that evidence handling is carried out in the correct and effective way to ensure that anyone caught or suspected of committing acts of piracy, are brought to justice.”On the second day of the exercise, a medical team from HNLMS Johan de Witt conducted medical training for Cutless Express participants in Djibouti, with the basic principles of treating victims practiced. The so called CABCD method was briefed, highlighting the initial checks that should be carried out on a victim: Catastrophal bleeding, Airway, Breathing, Circulating and Disability. Afterwards, the participants trained on applying a chest seal, a bandage and a tourniquet.An important part of dealing with piracy, is the ability to perform boarding operations to search a vessel. During Cutless Express, RFA Lyme Bay took the opportunity to practice and demonstrate boarding operations on a large merchant vessel. The Cutless Express participants were divided into three teams and tasked to ‘search and secure’ different sections of Lyme Bay: from the Machinery Control Room to the Bridge on 9 deck.Members of the Embarked Forces from Lyme Bay played the role of the crew of the vessel being boarded. As part of the training, the participants were also tasked to check the crew’s details and ship’s documentation to ensure all was in order. As part of the scenario, one member of the ship’s company played the part of a suspicious passenger who had to be located and secured. The whole evolution was covered by the local Djiboutian press.[mappress]Press Release, November 21, 2013; Image: EU Navfor Back to overview,Home naval-today HNLMS Johan De Witt, RFA Lyme Bay Take Part in Cutlass Express Maritime Exercise last_img read more
