ITI 68 / tallerdea

first_img Text description provided by the architects. As a counterbalance to the failure of peripheral social housing models developed over the last fifteen years in the ZMVM (Metropolitan Area of the Mexico Valley), authorities in Mexico City have promoted, in recent years, various development schemes for social housing within urban areas.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueITI68 is a social housing project located at the intersection of two corridors of urban intensity in Mexico City. These corridors, characterized by the concentration of supply of transport, facilities, and services have, however, a significant number of urban voids, optimal for the insertion of medium and high density housing.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe location of the project, overlooking high-speed motorized roads, defined from the beginning its position with respect to the environment: it understands that this landscape is seen by car, it is perceived in motion and accompanied by flashes of sound and visual information such as advertising, infrastructure, etc.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe project’s response is achieved through the synthesis of architectural elements: a homogenous volume, made up of some colored solid panels and others that are glazed, supported on a more sober base, at the scale of the street and the pedestrian. We want to create a new urban reference that somehow decants the outside visual vibrations and inserts them into it.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueRegarding the program, the project comprises two housing typologies, ranging between 45m2 and 52m2, organized into three separate volumes with circulation, lighting, and ventilation courtyards between them. We understand that social housing, particularly housing developed in urban areas, requires certain tools and strategies for its successful realization, such as the idea of ​​rationality as opposed to standardization, or the idea of ​​adaptability with respect to the concept to minimum housing. The technical, constructive, functional, and plastic definition of the project is based on these premises.Save this picture!Typical Floor PlanThe design of interior facades had at least two challenges: offsetting crossed views between spaces and homes, achieved through the geometric display of solid and glazed panels, as well as giving a certain personality to each of the volumes through the application of chromatic series in each courtyard.Project gallerySee allShow lessCourt-housing Cortinghborg Groningen / Architecten|en|enSelected ProjectsÇanakkale Antenna Tower International CompetitionArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Cto Interior Bicentenario, Mexico City, Federal District, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

The Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohli and Justice Subramonium Prasad further decided to dispose of the petition and register a suo moto matter flagging this issue. The order has come in a Letters Patent Appeal moved by the teachers working on the schools run by NrDMC, as the corporation failed to comply with the orders of the Single Judge of this court. The Single Bench had earlier directed the NrDMC to release the salaries of the teachers from March 2020 onwards. In its affidavit, NrDMC stated that not just the salary of the teachers teaching in the schools run by the Nr.D.M.C. have not been paid, there are several other employees working in different categories in Nr.D.M.C. starting from Group A officials down to the Safai Karamcharis whose salaries could not be paid as Delhi Government has not released the amounts payable to Nr.D.M.C. under various heads from April, 2020 to June, 2020. It was further informed to the court that more than 50% teachers have been actively deployed on COVID-19 duties as 299 schools run by the Nr.D.M.C. have been involved by the Delhi Government for providing services relating to distribution of dry ration, providing cooked meals to the needy, etc. ‘Around 5406 teachers have been engaged to do these duties but their salaries remain unpaid since March’, NrDMC submitted. While highlighting that the teachers cannot be made to run from pillar to post for release of their lawful dues, the court directed the Delhi Government to file an affidavit responding to the statements made by the NrDMC and set down a timeline for releasing the fund. The court said: ‘To say the least, this is a very sorry state of affairs. The teachers cannot be left on a wing and a prayer. They must be released their rightful dues without any further delay. As they are being made to discharge COVID-19 duties at the instance of the Delhi Government, they can be well equated with COVID-19 warriors.’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.

Justice DY Chandrachud of the Supreme Court of India, presided over the ceremony, as the Chairman of the e-Committee.The event commenced with Justice Aravind Kumar, judge of Karnataka HC, noting that nine thousand challans had been generated and fines had been collected in Karnataka. However, with the initiative of ushering in an era of paperless courts, fines could be paid immediately from anywhere by violators, without having any contact with Judges. Justice Chandrachud was then invited to e-inaugurate the Virtual Court of Karnataka HC. A presentation showcased how the e-Challan system would work, how the violators would be re-routed to their jurisdictional courts. Further, the e-filing system would help in prompting paperless filing and will thus reduce costs, and this would be present in HC and district courts. Post the presentation, Chief Justice AS Oka of the Karnataka High Court, and Justices AS Bopanna and S. Abdul Nazeer of the Supreme Court, gave an address on the importance of computerization of the justice system, as computers were a silver lining which provided a hope for change. Justice Chandrachud then began the inaugural address. He welcomed all the participants to the e-inauguration ceremony and congratulated the Karnataka High Court for the manner in which they had handled the challenges faced by the judiciary due to the onset of COVID-19. “After the dust settles on COVID-19, the image we will have is that of Justice Oka, welcoming a member of the staff who had been infected by the virus, with a rose. It shows sensitivity and sympathy in these trying times”, he said.Karnataka High Court Chief Justice, Abhay Oka, welcomes court staff Mary Josephine who resumed duty today after being cured of #COVID19#KarnatakaFightsCorona #COVID19karnataka pic.twitter.com/6oWU3hqPQL pic.twitter.com/zv7sY8DLkW— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 21, 2020Justice Chandrachud then enumerated the benefits of virtual courts, as they had provided an opportunity to younger members of the profession to establish themselves, and for women members to appear in Court from the comfort of their homes.”This has been a tremendous opportunity for younger members of the profession to establish themselves. It has also allowed the women members of the profession to appear in court from the comforts of their homes”, he said. Justice Chandrachud: To give you the present idea of virtual courts, 101.74 crores worth of fines have been collected till date. Imagine the amount of time it is saving the citizen who doesn’t have to go to court anymore. #VirtualCourts— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 6, 2020He then stipulated the positives of Virtual Courts, as 101.74 crores worth of fines had been collected, without the citizen having to go to court. Further, a column for listing the reason for delays in cases had been added, which would help in classifying the delays and helping in the decision-making process.”We have helped Judges in the smart-listing of cases so that cases are listed at once and reduces the burden on the judiciary. So, an advocate who is busy at one time, is not required in another case at the same time.”Justice Chandrachud then referred to the ICJS, a crucial system which would help to link all the important stakeholders and institutional stakeholders in the criminal justice administration, such as police, the prisons etc. “This will help in data-tracing and disposing of cases quickly”. He concluded the ceremony by elaborating upon the fact that it was a collaborative effort which required all organizations to be on board and indulge in the joint initiative. Justice John Michael Cunha of Karnataka HC delivered the Vote of Thanks, and on that note, the ceremony came to an end. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Astrobiological instrumentation for Mars – the only way is down

first_imgIn this paper, in this edition of the Journal commemorating the life and work of David Wynn-Williams, we consider approaches to the astrobiological investigation of Mars. We provide a brief account of the scientific rationale behind the approach presented here. In particular, we outline the capabilities of the Raman spectrometer for the detection of biomarkers. David Wynn-Williams was an active champion of this instrument who was keen to field-qualify a version in Antarctica with a view to flying a Raman instrument onboard a Mars-bound space mission. We examine a scenario for the deployment of such an instrument in conjunction with other instrumentation and argue that subsurface deployment of scientific instruments is essential if we are to succeed in detecting any evidence that may exist for former life on Mars. We outline a mission scenario – Vanguard – which represents a novel but low-risk, low-cost approach to Mars exploration that was conceived and developed jointly by one of the authors (Ellery) and the late David Wynn-Williams.last_img read more

Why Billie Jean King wants people to think of women as leaders for everyone

first_imgNovember 19, 2020 /Sports News – National Why Billie Jean King wants people to think of women as leaders for everyone FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC NewsBy KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — When Billie Jean King stepped onto the tennis court at the Houston Racquet Club with eight other women tennis professionals to sign contracts for $1, the moment was bigger than equal rights in tennis, it was an ace for female leadership for years to come.The tennis trailblazer joined Good Morning America Tuesday to discuss her new Audible documentary, The Dollar Rebellion, with longtime friend Robin Roberts, who received King’s namesake leadership award in 2018.“When a woman does something, [people] always think, ‘oh, thank you for what you did for women.’ They never say that to a male,” King explained harkening back to her fight for gender equality in tennis. “So I hope people will start thinking of women as leaders for everyone, not just for women.”King said it’s important to consider that “You never know how someone is going to touch your life or how you’re going to touch their life.”“Muhammad Ali and I used to talk about this a lot. That everyone is an influencer,” she said. “You never know where it may come from and how you may influence yourself as well as others.”In her new Audible audio documentary, King reflects back on the groundbreaking show of leadership from the ’70s.“I get too much credit,” King said, and hailed all eight women — Rosie Casals, Nancy Richey, Julie Heldman, Valerie Ziegenfuss, Judy Dalton, Kerry Melville Reid, Peaches Bartkowicz, and Kristy Pigeon — who signed that $1 contract with World Tennis Magazine publisher, Gladys Hellman, for what went on to become the Virginia Slims Circuit.The group known as the “original nine,” share a piece of history in their famed black-and-white photograph raising a single dollar over their heads, which King said holds great importance because every single player was in allignment.“We fought for equality,” she said. “Women’s tennis is the leader in women’s sports on and off the court. And players today have to realize it came from that moment when we were willing to give up our careers.”“We knew it was worth going for it, but didn’t know it would happen. It was a scary, scary time for us but what’s wonderful is we’re celebrating this year,” she added.The group planned to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic moment this year, but couldn’t due to the COVID-19 pandemic. King said they will make up for lost time when it’s safe to reconvene: “Hopefully we’ll get together next year at Wimbledon.”“I just want people to understand how and why this has been possible for all these young tennis players to make a great living,” she said, adding examples like Venus and Serena Williams, Coco Gauff and Naomi Osaka.“The great thing they’ve used tennis as a platform — for equality for everyone and we continue to fight that,” the 39-time Grand Slam winner said. “Every generation tries to make it better for the next — but what people don’t understand with women is that we lead for everyone.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
