This is an office and residence of an architect, located by a marsh, in Rajagiriya Sri Lanka. Although located along urban fringe near a series of high-rise buildings, and close to the main road, the building is designed like a fortification. It is sealed from the Colombo heat (with specially designed double screens to limit western and southern exposure), traffic and noises of the road but once within reveals unexpected views of the adjoining marsh and is totally permeable to the natural setting. The building plays with volumes to create many areas for living, work and leisure, and also with materials and tectonic devices to create a cooler microclimate within the building, encouraging daylight, and views to the marsh, harvesting and regulating rain water, and creating gardens for biodiversity. The design also takes into account its location by the water, creating garden spaces that act as detention area during monsoons, thus preventing the living/ workspaces from flooding. Save this picture!© Palinda Kannangara ArchitectsLocated on a small foot print of 2720sqft the building comprises of three levels – the ground area has a 4vehicle parking, kitchen, model making room and a guest suit each room opening into a courtyard.

Increased signups for fundraising challenge events

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tour operator Discover Adventure, organisers of worldwide fundraising challenges for charity groups, has reported a significant increase in recent weeks of individuals signing up on fundraising challenge events: people who are seeing it as high time to do something different and worthwhile with their time off from work. Becoming increasingly deflated with news of the credit crunch, people are turning to challenge events for inspiration and expressing a wish to put their annual leave to a much better use.Discover Adventure has released its new brochure of the increasingly popular Open Challenges. These physically-demanding Challenges take place in all corners of the world as well as in the UK, and are designed for people of everyday backgrounds and fitness levels to take part and raise money for any charity of their choice. At the same time they will gain from an experience overwhelmingly different to a sightseeing-type tour; for many it can trigger a complete change in their lives.Trip participants can choose to support any charity – a national organisation or their local hospice or appeal – by events ranging from trekking up Kilimanjaro to cycling from Lake Titicaca to Machu Picchu in Peru. 30 different challenge ideas are featured in Discover Adventure’s brochure, covering a wide range of activities, destinations and durations. Some events are rather closer to home than you might expect; very popular is the 5-day classic London to Paris Cycle Challenge.Although treks feature widely you need not rely on covering the ground on foot; challenges can take place on two wheels (pedal power), on horse back, on the water and even dog-sledding and other Arctic-based activities.Jo Bradshaw, who manages Discover Adventure’s Open Challenges as well as leading several of the trips each year, is not surprised that in the current economic climate people are searching for something more rewarding to do with their time – particularly if others are going to benefit. She states, “If you feel the time is right to push some personal boundaries, face fears, celebrate a milestone or create a turning point in your life, what better way than giving yourself an unforgettable experience of a lifetime, and doing it for a charity. It certainly is a Win, Win Situation.”For further information or alternative photos please contact:Kathryn Furnell, Marketing ManagerDirect Tel: 01722 719021Email: [email protected] Adventure, Throope Down House, Coombe Bissett, Salisbury, Wiltshire SP5 4LNMain office Tel: 01722 718444 ; Fax: 01722 718445;Email: [email protected] Web: www.discoveradventure.comNotes to EditorsDiscover Adventure has been designing and operating challenging events for over 14 years, and is proud of its very high level of repeat business with both large and small charities.

Haitians remember U.S. invasion of 1915

The United States began its military occupation of Haiti a century ago, sending an armed force ashore on July 28, 1915, just south of Port-au-Prince.A bit earlier, a raiding party of U.S. Marines had stolen Haiti’s gold reserve of about $500,000 and turned it over to First National City Bank in New York — now Citibank.In Haiti and its diaspora, activists held demonstrations and conferences to mark this hundred-year anniversary. In New York, a conference and cultural evening were held in the Haitian community and at John Jay College.Given the significance of the present mass expulsion of Haitians and Haitian-Dominicans from the Dominican Republic, some of the speeches were in Spanish while others were in Creole, French and English.Historical background to the occupationHaiti was the second country in the Western Hemisphere to gain its independence. After a hard-fought, 12-year-long struggle against France ended in 1804, slavery was eradicated and the slave owners expelled from the country.The U.S. sent its first foreign aid — $750,000 worth of food and arms — to the slave owners in Haiti to put down the revolt. At that time, $750,000 was big money. The U.S. Constitution enshrined slavery and U.S. leaders held up Greece and Rome, whose economies and societies depended on slavery, as models for the state they were building.The U.S. didn’t recognize Haiti as an independent country for 60 years, actively working to keep Haiti diplomatically and economically isolated. U.S. slave owners were extremely worried that Haiti’s example might be contagious, especially since 10,000 whites had fled from Haiti to the U.S.Haiti’s “original sin,” in the opinion of many Haitian historians and activists, was becoming the only country to have had a successful slave revolution.Opposition in both Haiti and U.S.Justifications for the U.S. occupation, which lasted until 1934,were filled with lies and outright falsehoods.  President Woodrow Wilson openly declared its purpose was to “establish peace and good order” and “has nothing to do with any diplomatic negotiations.” But his orders to the admiral running the operation involved changing Haitian law to protect U.S. and other foreign interests.The U.S. invoked the Monroe Doctrine to justify its violation of Haitian sovereignty and forced the Haitian Parliament to agree to a 10-year treaty that made Haiti a U.S. political and financial protectorate.The occupying Marine forces came from the U.S. South, where anti-Haitian sentiment and racism were at high levels. The Marines forced Haitian peasants, the vast majority of the population at that time, into work gangs to build roads, bridges and dams.Their treatment was so rotten that it provided the impetus for a revolt of the cacos, armed peasant guerrillas, under the leadership of Charlemagne Péralte and Benoît Battraville. This revolt lasted, even after the execution of Péralte and Battraville, until 1921. Even after the end of the armed resistance, popular opposition, sparked by nationalist students and by the formation of the Haitian Communist Party under Jacques Roumain, intensified, until the U.S. finally withdrew its troops in 1934.The first opposition in the United States came from the Black community and was part of the NAACP’s international work.  According to Mary Renda’s book “Taking Haiti,” the U.S. Communist Party, mainly working through allied groups, played a prominent part in organizing this opposition. The occupation of Haiti, and of the Dominican Republic, were issues in the presidential campaigns of the 1920s.Withdrawing U.S. Marines didn’t really end U.S. control over Haiti. The National Guard, which became the Haitian army, was formed and trained by the Pentagon. It supported the reign of the Duvaliers, father and son, from 1957 to 1986. It then sponsored, maneuvered and supported various military regimes until the elections that brought Jean-Bertrand Aristide into the presidency in 1991. It then supported and helped organize the two coups against him.Since 2004, a United Nations military force called Minustah has occupied Haiti. It functions as a veil for U.S. troops, which could be quickly sent in if Washington felt it necessary. For example, 25,000 U.S. troops arrived in a few days after the earthquake of 2010 wiped out the U.N.’s command.Beyond exercising military and political rule over Haiti, U.S. rulers want to humiliate it, pretending it can’t run its own affairs without outside assistance, and discount and deprecate its culture.The Haitian progressive movement has organized protests of 100,000 people or more in Port-au-Prince and nationwide, even though most Haitians live without reliable electricity or telephone service. They can certainly organize themselves.Their culture is alive and vibrant, as the poets and musicians who mixed Creole, French and English in their presentations in New York demonstrated. Long live a free and independent Haiti!For more information, see the book “Haiti: A Slave Revolution,” which can be read online at http://www.iacenter.org/haiti/.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more

Gov. Cuomo’s proposed plan could threaten to destabilize the mortgage markets. We must work to meet the needs of struggling homeowners, but must also ensure we do not undermine the very system of homeownership.”Gov. Cuomo’s relief plan follows President Donald Trump’s announcement that foreclosures and evictions for mortgages backed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency will be suspended. Official statements from FHFA and HUD clarified that the policy will extend at least 60 days.During an earlier press conference Wednesday, President Trump had said, “Today I am also announcing that the Department of Housing and Urban Development is providing immediate relief to renters and homeowners by suspending all foreclosures and evictions until the end of April. We are working very closely with Dr. Ben Carson and everybody from HUD.”“Today’s actions will allow households who have an FHA-insured mortgage to meet the challenges of COVID-19 without fear of losing their homes, and help steady market concerns,” said HUD Secretary Dr. Benjamin Carson. “The health and safety of the American people is of the utmost importance to the Department, and the halting of all foreclosure actions and evictions for the next 60 days will provide homeowners with some peace of mind during these trying times.”“This is an uncertain time for many Americans, particularly those who could experience a loss of income. As such, we want to provide FHA borrower households with some immediate relief given the current circumstances,” said Federal Housing Commissioner The Hon. Brian Montgomery. “Our actions today make it clear where the priority needs to be.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Industry Reacts to New York 90-Day Mortgage Relief Plan Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles About Author: Seth Welborn  Print This Post Subscribelast_img read more

While passing such a restraining order, District Judge Sanjiv Jain has also restrained the defendants from selling it distributing the copies of the allegedly defamatory book and the newspaper article, till the pendency of the suit. Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi has moved a plea before the Patiala House Court against the alleged defamatory statements made by Sarosh Zaiwalla in his new book. Mr Singhvi has claimed permanent and mandatory injunction against Zaiwalla’s book titled ‘Honour Bound: Adventures of an Indian Lawyer in English Courts’, claiming injury to his reputation in public. The damage to reputation is also claimed against an article published in Times of India titled ‘I Learnt From Bofors Never To Act In A Case Involving Internal Indian Politics, Says Sarosh Zaiwalla’. In addition to permanent and mandatory injunction, the applicant has also sought an interim relief of restraining book’s publisher Harper Collins, as well as the vendors, from marketing and selling the aforesaid book in India till the pendency of the suit. ‘The insinuation that the plaintiff’s deceased father unduly influenced a noted Arbitrator and Jurist Late Chief Justice RS Pathak (Retd) into passing an award in favour of the Republic of India in a matter where plaintiff was appearing as a counsel is ex facie defamatory to the plaintiff in as much as it unequivocally accuses his father of a criminal offence and insinuates that the plaintiff was himself complicit in it’, the plaint states. It is further submitted that the accusations made in the aforesaid Times of India article is evidently incorrect and has clearly hurt the sentiments and feelings of the Singhvi family. The plaintiff has argued that the defendant has cited Mr Vir Singhvi as one of the sources behind the information published in the book. However, Mr Vir Singhvi has clearly denied having any such conversation with the defendant. This makes the plaintiff entitled to the declaration stating that the said information in the book is false. It is further argued that the false nature of the claims made in the book is clear from the fact that the defendants never approached the Singhvi family to seek a clarification on such claims; especially when both Retd Chief Justice RS Pathak and Mr Kuldeep Nayar are not alive to defend the libelous allegations made against them. ‘These statements have been raked up after 3 decades to link the name of the plaintiff with the Bofors case’, the plaintiff argues. In light of the same, the court has issued summons for the settlement of issues as well as notice to all the defendants which shall be delivered as per modes permissible under Delhi High Court rules and orders. While passing the order, the court noted that: ‘In the instant case, the reputation of the plaintiff is at stake. His reputation would suffer an irreparable harm if injunctions are prayed for are not granted as much as he would suffer further loss to his reputation. A prima facie case is made out in favour of the plaintiff.’ The plaintiff in the present case was represented by Mr Vijay Aggarwal, Mr Naman Joshi and Mr Bavin KapilaClick Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
