Saint Michael’s Church in Mytholmroyd was one of 3,000 buildings – including more than 2,000 homes – in the Calder Valley damaged when the area was flooded on Boxing Day in 2015. The damage caused by the flood was estimated at £150 million GBP. Since the flooding, the congregation held services in the town’s cricket club before being invited to share the building of the local Good Shepherd Roman Catholic church.Read the entire article here.

Since there is a myth in our society that good architecture is the immediate result of good money supply so it belongs to the rich only, the main goal of this project was designing a construction enjoying quality and providing affordability. This goal could be achieved only through the effective interaction and cooperation between the architect, the Client and the collaborators. Save this picture!Site PlanThere is a constant historical principle in Iranian architecture: the richness in details in coexistence with the representation of simplicity in overall scale which finally ends into merging with the context and matching to their functions. In Iranian traditional architecture users built their houses in a sustainable and climatic manner. This architectural considerations led into creation of a variety of typologies in different climatic zones of the country. We decided to be loyal to this principle in our project.Save this picture!© Ashkan Radnia The choice of material was a significant parameter in this project mainly because we had to choose something affordable and easy to freight to the site. As a result, we considered clay blocks which were produced in a factory nearby and this meant a considerable decrease in the freight charge of the materials. The modules were constructed with bricks and we tried to find a suitable material for the module frames. The least expensive material that gave us the ability to create our desired sense of space was concrete. This way, we could reduce the cost of the project to its minimum. We used this reduction of cost to create the high quality interior spaces.Save this picture!DiagramAfter designing the project we started to train regional workmen. To make sure that they are skilled enough to arrange final modules we ran some test modules before the final construction phase started. The client’s patience, understanding and his trust helped the process.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffThe close collaboration between architect and the client caused the progress of this project in a half forgotten district and at last it reached residents satisfaction. The units were sold-out during the construction phase with the same price of a finished building in the neighborhood while there was so many completed buildings left unsold. This way we achieved the client`s goal to gain profit of his project. That was what we all searching for; residents’ satisfaction, the clients’ benefit; A proper architecture from architect`s point of view and a good resume for constructors. Thus everyone who was somehow involved in the project was given what he/she tried to achieve.Save this picture!© Parham TaghioffApplication of brick products:As it may be seen in the project images we used clay blocks in the façade in a way that cover some parts of the terraces according to the reasons mentioned above.Save this picture!DiagramBrick modules’ designs are based on Iranian geometrical patterns; each module was designed in relation with the function of the space behind it. Having variety in brick modules they are coherent and homophonic. That’s how it resulted in a smooth facade to represent both Iranian brick architecture and the essence of residential. In addition this geometry is concrete for local workmen and thus it facilitates the construction process. The geometry is also present in traditional residential architecture of desert areas of Iran.Save this picture!© Ashkan RadniaProject gallerySee allShow lessCasa Lela / Oficina d’ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsRem Koolhaas On Preservation, The Fondazione Prada, And Tearing Down Part Of ParisArchitecture News Share ArchDaily “COPY” “COPY”last_img

In this endeavour, they effortlessly mix fact and fiction. Two recent programmes, anchored by Arnab Goswami, have given rise to important legal issues. The first programme anchored by Goswami insinuated that the protest by migrant labourers, who had gathered in Bandra with hopes that transportation to return would be made available, were not genuine. He further insinuated that the protest appeared to be a religious gathering, orchestrated by political groups to endanger public health and peace, amidst the Lockdown.In his second programme Goswami argued that an Opposition Leader would be reveling at the deaths of two Sadhus, since they were Hindus. He suggested that because of her religion and country of origin, the Opposition Leader would be happy with the lynching and would look for approval from a foreign country. First information reports (FIRs) premised on the above programmes were filed in several police stations against Goswami, Editor in Chief of the Channel. He approached the Courts, looking to quash these FIRs on the grounds that the allegations were a result of malafide intent, and that the statements made in the programmes ought to be protected under the constitutional right of free speech.Briefly, the FIRs seek to argue that Goswami, through his speech, sought to promote enmity and ill-will between different groups on the basis of religion, residence etc.( punishable under Section 153A of IPC). Further it was alleged that his speech imputed that a person/persons belonging to a certain religious/linguistic group etc. cannot bear allegiance to the Constitution or uphold sovereignty/integrity of India (Section 153B of IPC). It further states that Goswami, with malicious and deliberate intent, outraged religious feelings and insulted religious beliefs of a class of Indian Citizens (Section 295A of IPC). The Supreme Court’s judgement in Manzar Sayeed Khan vs State of Maharashtra was cited by both the sides in the Bombay High Court. The High Court, in my view erred in its interpretation of the judgement by applying the principles of the judgement to Goswami’s speech. The speech of the Petitioner was tested by the High Court on the following parameters:-(a) Whether the speech shows prima facie intention of the Petitioner to create disharmony;(b) Viewing the speech as a whole (context) and not seeing specific statements in a vacuum; and(c) To judge the speech on standard of a reasonable courageous man/woman.The Bombay High Court passed an order stating that prima facie there seems no merit in the allegations imputed in the FIR. This view of the High Court is legally problematic for the following reasons:-(1) Unsubstantiated Allegations against a person premised on her religious identity and country of origin with the intention of creating disharmony as unlawful speech. The FIR (No. 164 of 2020) alleges that Goswami’s (Petitioner) speech on the Palghar incident was outside the ambit of free speech. Goswami, in a rant alleges, that the Leader of the Opposition Party sought affirmation from the country of her origin for this act of lynching. He repeatedly implied through statements that she is not Hindu but from another religion. He formed a set of accusations against an Indian citizen and an elected Member of the Indian Parliament for promoting lynching, premised on her religious identity and origin. In fact, the word Vatican was also used while referring to the Member of Parliament. He goes onto say that the lynching took place because the sadhus were Hindus and the same situation would not have arisen had they belonged to some other religion. He then intentionally went on to falsely allege that various news publications and activists chose not to criticise the lynching. The Bombay High Court assumed the Petitioner’s innocence by stating that the target was only Smt. Sonia Gandhi. The Court, overlooked the fact that she was not targeted in her role as a legislator. Smt. Sonia Gandhi is neither a Legislator from Maharashtra nor holds a portfolio in the State. The accusations made against her were purely based on her religious identity and country of origin. The Petitioner questioned her intentions premised on the assumption that she is prejudiced against the Hindu community. The allegations against the Congress leader cannot be looked at as fair criticism of a legislator. The grounds for criticism taken on the show were not for her role as MP of Rae Bareilly or as the Leader of the Opposition. Her religious identity was made reason for her alleged apathy towards those in the Hindu community. Malicious accusations against a person with the intention of creating disharmony between religious groups cannot be seen as an expression of free speech. (2) Unlawful Statements on record cannot be negated by plausible situations. The Bombay High Court records that the Petitioner, when questioned by a panelist on the communalising of protests at Bandra, stated that he would do the same if it was another religious community. Thereafter, the Court seemed to reason that if the Petitioner would be consistent in his speech across religious communities then the Petitioner is not abusing his right to speech. Two problems arise with this line of reasoning of the Court. Firstly, communal statements made ‘equally’ against various religious communities does not detract from the fact that such speech creates disharmony, and therefore, is not lawful speech. Secondly, speech already made on record ought to be tested in law within the framework of the FIR. The Court cannot seek to rely on a hypothetical situation to neutralise the legality of statements which form a part of the record. (3) Speech not examined as a whole.The nature of the speech in the programmes were not intended to ask questions to the administration in charge. In the case of Bandra, the intention was to question the intention of the protesters on religious grounds. While in Palghar the Petitioner’s allegation was that an Opposition Leader supported the lynching of members of the Hindu religious community because of her own personal religious identity. The programme as a whole shows concerted intention of the anchor to spread an unfounded view in the public which creates enmity and insecurity amongst members of various religious communities. Further, the Court should take into consideration the fact that, the Petitioner’s allegations are contrary to the investigation of the State police which has found no communal basis for the lynching in Palgarh.This shows the malicious intention of the Petitioner. Wild allegations may fall under the ambit of free speech. However, specific unfounded assertions blaming people for lynching and violating public health requirements, in a pandemic, on grounds of their religious identity and their prejudice against certain religious groups, are not protected under the right to free speech. Allegations against a leader for not upholding the Constitution and causing damage to national integration because of her country of origin, also cannot be deemed lawful speech.Free speech is a liberty which cannot be compromised. However, to use speech as violence against others’ right to expression, life and peace cannot be seen as free speech.  Abhik Chimni is a Delhi based LawyerViews are personal onlyNext Storylast_img read more

Garda warning as local woman almost falls victim to scam

first_imgGardai in Donegal have issued a warning after receiving an alert from a local bank that one of their customers almost fell victim to a phishing scam in recent days.The lady concerned received a call from someone who informed her that the amount of €39 had been taken from her account.The woman was instructed to dial 1 if she wished to further discuss this deduction and when she so, she was transferred to someone who informed her that someone had tried to spend money from her account.The lady agreed to grant remote access to her PC to the caller and she then was instructed to log into her banking online facility.When this was done, the caller harvested the lady’s personal information.They set up a fraudulent beneficiary onto her account. To set up a beneficiary on an account an activation code is required and this was sent to the phone of the lady in question by text.She did not supply the caller with this code and therefore no funds were transferred to the fraudulent account. The caller’s number in this case started with 0044123.Gardai are urging the public to advise elderly or vulnerable neighbours and friends of the fact that these scam calls are very common. Advise them to hang up should they receive such a call and to contact their bank directly.Genuine banks/businesses will not ask for personal details nor will they ever request remote access to your PC.

The old rooster and hens were the thieves, and they had to be punished.We got our BB guns and climbed the tree to the tin roof and unloaded on the chickens and the ole rooster.
