Our task was to combine the quality of the surviving barn fragments with the texture and tone of their found materials.Save this picture!© Will ScottSet in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the 18th Century threshing barn, dairy and stables are a prominent feature from the North Downs Way. To maintain the barn’s brooding presence – and to provide security and a sense of protection from rolling Channel mists – the barn is usually kept in a closed state. However, industrial-scale kinetic mechanisms create openings that address key views into the countryside.Save this picture!PlanMassive, insulated shutters recall the original barn doors, and protect a vast rotating window operated by an adapted chain-lift. To the East front, an American aircraft-hangar door allows the exterior to concertina upwards, creating a canopy over the dining terrace and revealing ribbon glazing within. A single rooflight, running the length of the main roof’s ridge provides steady ambient light to the living spaces.Save this picture!© Keith CollieThe original green oak framing was in a state of near-collapse at the start of the project: it was carefully disassembled and removed from site for repair by the Green Oak Company, specialists in traditional hand-carpentry techniques. While the smaller stable range remains timber-framed, the main barn frame and cladding is largely cosmetic – the oak is supported by a steel exoskeleton clad in a super-insulated industrial SIP system. This structural approach allowed for rapid completion of the building envelope and incorporation of the huge opening mechanisms.Save this picture!© Keith CollieOne of the central spatial challenges was insertion of a mezzanine (for sleeping and bathing) into the main volume. A tapering brick chimney supports the corner of the mezzanine, and incorporates a cantilevered, waxed steel staircase and an open fireplace. This hybrid device interrupts the regularity of the three-bayed barn and delineates the different programmes within.Save this picture!© Will ScottThe prevalence of recycled and found materials belie high-tech solutions to the building’s operational requirements. A ground-source heat pump harvests warmth from the paddock soil to provide heating & hot water. Reclaimed light fittings were adapted to use long-life, low-energy LED lamps. Integration of heat, light and security systems allow Sinclair (who travels frequently between his studios in London, New York and Malmo) to manage the building and work remotely – the barn is part of the nascent Internet of Things.

Strong desire among Londoners under-35 to give more money and time to charity, says City Philanthropy report

first_img Howard Lake | 29 July 2015 | News  127 total views,  1 views today Strong desire among Londoners under-35 to give more money and time to charity, says City Philanthropy report  128 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 The report is based on a YouGov survey of over 1,000 full-time London workers aged 18 or over, plus existing studies. It is the first London-wide research on employee involvement and attitudes to giving and was carried out by the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy at Cass Business School.Positive attitude to givingThe researchers found that many workers have a positive and enquiring attitude towards giving, recognising that it brings various benefits. For example:· three-quarters of respondents agree giving back makes people happier· over 60% say volunteering helps to develop job-related skills· 31% of 18-24 year olds want more information on tax-efficient giving, compared with 17% for the sample as a whole.There is some degree of openness to new methods of giving: 21% of under 35s are interested in alternative methods, such as social investment, rising to 29% amongst 18-24 year olds.Influences on givingAmong Millennials (people aged under 35), friends were the greatest influence on giving and volunteering, followed by current and recent workplace schemes and initiatives.The global economic crisis has also had an impact on attitudes to giving: 38% of under-35s say that it has made them think it is important to give something back. Advertisement Tagged with: employee giving Individual giving London Research / statisticscenter_img RecommendationsThe report recommends that London’s employers create more workplace-based opportunities to give younger employees a route into more volunteering and giving and value it more explicitly as part of a work culture.Lord Mayor of the City of London, Alan Yarrow commented on the findings, saying:“Our young people want to use their wealth of talent, spirit and enthusiasm to help those less able to help themselves, but they also want to work for employers that share that ideal. I urge employers to be part of a working culture that promotes responsibility for the wider world – a working culture of which London can be proud.”City Philanthropy’s Cheryl Chapman, added:“With the pressures on London’s infrastructure growing daily, and a further era of spending cuts, this philanthropic impulse is a potential asset for the voluntary sector which we cannot afford to neglect. There is a prime opportunity for employers to harness ‘Millennial Power’ and encourage younger workers in citizenship, developing skills that benefit the wider world as well as their own careers.”Report co-author, Cathy Pharoah put the findings in context:“All the evidence indicates that giving has remained fairly flat for some years. The results of this research are exciting because they reveal significant new potential to increase the numbers of young people involved in giving and volunteering. It is within our reach to build a stronger base for future giving.”You can download More to Give: London Millennials Working Towards a Better World in PDF. More than half of those aged 35 and under working full time in London want to donate more time, skills and money to charity, according to research commission by City Philanthropy.According to the research, the younger the workers, the more they want to do in terms of volunteering and giving. The research, entitled More to Give: London Millennials Working Towards a Better World, reveals that:• 53% of under-35s working full time in London want to volunteer more than they do• 60% of those aged 18-24 age group feel the same• but only 35% aged 55 and over share that aimOver a third (34%) of young people under-35 want access to organisations that could match their skills and experience with an appropriate charity.Charitable giving is the norm for London employees, with 80% of those surveyed saying that they give money to charity.  In terms of donating more:• 35% of respondents under-35 want to give more, whereas• 20% of those over 35 want to give more AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

South Korea: RSF calls on tobacco giant KT&G to drop abusive suit against journalist

This move has sparked sharp objections from the Journalists Association of Korea (JAK), who denounced this “new type of attempt to muzzle journalism”.“It is imperative that KT&G drop this abusive suit immediately,” says Cédric Alviani, the head of RSF’s East Asia bureau, who also called for “regulatory reforms to ensure the freedom of journalists to carry out their investigations without fear of legal repercussions”.The article that led to the suit reported on a commercial dispute involving KT&G and one of its affiliates. Two days after publication, the tobacco manufacturing giant filed a claim against the newspaper and the journalist, further singling out Kang by requesting the seizure of half of his salary until a provision of 200 million won (150,000 euros) was reached, which amounts to more than three years the average reporter’s salary. South Korea is ranked 42nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

Group leaders were also interested in how much co-operative play the children got involved in.LEGO for play and creativity is a great way to introduce team building to the children with tower building contests where they need to work as a group.It is also a great way to encourage and develop fine motor skills in the younger children, while the group for smaller children now has new Duplo sets to develop their skills.Childcare Worker Niamh Galligan explained that some of the leaders are undertaking training as part of their community employment schemes and this is an important step in developing employment skills for the childcare sector.“As we are the first BRICKX Club in Limerick, it will give them a unique selling point on their CVs,” she added.Maria Donoghue, Programme Manager for the Regeneration project with Limerick City and County Council said that the BRICKX Club is an ideal example of how regeneration funding can support the local community.“It develops people’s skills, which in turn are used to help the youngest groups in the community. Education is a crucial element to improve standards of living and ability to access opportunities.

Later, the case was re-opened, leading to the arrest of Republic TV chief Arnab Goswami, whose name is mentioned in Naik’s suicide note.In the backdrop, the division bench comprising Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik asked Desai the difference between ‘A summary’, ‘B summary’ and ‘C summary’. Goswami’s lawyers had raised an argument that the police needed a judicial order to re-open the investigation after the acceptance of ‘A summary’ report by the Magistrate.Responding to this, Desai, referring to the Bombay Police Manual. explained that an ‘A summary’ report is filed in a case where the offence is made out but the evidence is untraceable or the accused persons are not found.On the other hand, ‘B’ summary report is filed in a case where the allegations are found to be false or there no evidence is found against the accused after the completion of investigation. ‘C summary’ report is filed in cases where the FIR is found to be based on a mistake of fact.”If it is “A” summary, it means that evidence was not sufficient but offence was there. If it was a case of wrong accused, it would have been ‘B’ summary”, he submitted.He explained that ‘A summary’ means that the investigation is yet to reach completion due to lack of evidence. On the other hand, ‘B summary’ and ‘C summary’ reports mean that investigation is complete and that no offence is made out against the accused.”When Magistrate accepts ‘A’ Summary, it means that there is an offence. It is not a case of discharge or closure. It means it was a genuine case of offence but the investigation could not collect evidence”, he explained.”A Summary reflects incomplete investigation. In “B” and “C” summary, the investigation is complete and either there is no offence or wrong accused. The distinction is important”, he added. Based on this, he rebutted the petitioners’ argument that the Magistrate had closed the case. To accept the petitioners’ argument that judicial order is necessary to revive investigation in a case where ‘A Summary’ has been filed would mean to place curbs on the powers of the investigation agency. He sought to explain this point through an example of a terrorism case.”Take a case of terrorism where evidence is not traceable. After a period of time, police files ‘A’ summary before Magistrate. After some time, police gets evidence of terrorist. Should police wait for Magistrate order to nab him?”, he asked.He added,”The power of the investigating officer to make further investigation under Section 173(8) and the power of the Court to order the same is different.”Reliance was placed on Nirmal Singh Kahlon v. State of Punjab where the Top Court had observed that it is one thing to say that the court will have supervisory jurisdiction to ensure a fair investigation and correctness whereof is open to question, but it is another thing to say that the investigating officer will have no jurisdiction whatsoever to make any further investigation without the express permission of the Magistrate.Desai also referred to Section 4 of the Maharashtra Police Act as per which the superintendence of the Police Force throughout, the State of Maharashtra, vests in and exercisable by the State Government. “So State govt has power to direct investigation,” he said.Nevertheless, he informed the Bench that the Magistrate, who had passed the order of closure, was informed of the revival of the FIR so that he can supervise the case. (In terms of Sakiri Vasu v. State of UP & Anr.)He submitted that Section 164 statements were also recorded by the Magistrate in the case and allowing the recording of those statements mean that the Magistrate is aware of the revival of investigation and has approved the same.Right of victim to seek fair & complete investigationHighlighting the Complainant’s plight, who had lost her father and grandmother, Desai submitted that she had been “knocking on the doors for justice” for almost a year.”Today the State is in the process of collecting evidence. Article 14 applies to the victim as well. Victim also a fundamental right to seek fair and complete investigation… From February, the victim (Adnya Naik) has been knocking on the doors for justice. The victim discovered the closure report only in Twitter… Petitioner has rights. Also, the victim has rights. It is the duty of the State to balance the rights of the victim and the accused,” he vehemently argued.He submitted that the investigation cannot be brought to a standstill when it is under progress. He insisted that there is a suicide note with names of persons and thus it is a matter that needs to be investigated.Reliance was placed on Narayan Malhari Thorat v. Vinayak Deorao Bhagat, where the Supreme Court criticized the Bombay High Court for quashing an abetment to suicide case where the name of the accused was in the suicide note.After the conclusion of the arguments yesterday, the bench reserved orders on interim bail. The orders will be pronounced tomorrow at 3 PM.Though Senior Advocates Harish Salve and Abad Ponda made vehement submissions seeking ad-interim bail for Goswami -who was remanded to 14 days judicial custody on November 4 – the bench refused to grant it.
