The L house will be located in the centre of a southern Alsatian village. It is composed of a main building and two adjoining constructions, organised according to the pattern of a traditional farm. A simple and widely opened garden occupies the middle of the compound. We have attempted to unify the appearance of the whole building by using in a similar colour for its roof and its walls. Its grey tone is a reminiscence of the wood patina, typical of the old barns of this region.Save this picture!© Pierre Manuel RouxelSave this picture!SectionThe apparent coherence of the construction is however constituted of different materials and surfaces. The roof is covered with metallic corrugated panels; the surrounding walls are made of concrete structure covered with an exterior insulation and a dark-grey coating. Comparable to the doors of traditional farms, all the shutters of the house are made of sliding perforated metallic panels, which play with the interior and exterior light.Save this picture!© Pierre Manuel RouxelProject gallerySee allShow lessApartment in Minami-Azabu / HMAASelected ProjectsPRV A131 / e.Re studioSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© Pierre Manuel Rouxel+ 16 Share France CopyAbout this officeDeA architectesOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTagsdorfFrancePublished on June 20, 2016Cite: “House in Tagsdorf / DeA architectes” 20 Jun 2016.

£35.2 million Lottery scheme for transforming waste launched

first_img The Royal Society for Nature Conservation (RSNC) and the New Opportunities Fund (NOF) are joining forces for a second multi-million pound funding initiative – the Community Recycling and Economic Development (CRED) scheme, created from £35.2 million of National Lottery money through the New Opportunities Fund’s Transforming Waste Programme.The partnership was forged in April 2001 when RSNC and the New Opportunities Fund launched the successful £15.3m Social, Economic and Environmental Development (SEED) Programme, targeting disadvantaged communities throughout England.The CRED scheme will make £35.2m of lottery money available to community-based organisations delivering recycling, reuse and composting projects across England, striving to establish new schemes in areas where they do not exist, expand existing programmes and increase the amount of material recycled, reused or composted.

The scheme will offer grants of £50,000 to £300,000 to not-for-profit organisations.As the lead partner, RSNC will bring together a consortium of organisations in the scheme, with a track record of developing and implementing community waste projects, grant-giving, waste regulating and local authority waste recycling. These partners are Community Composting Network, Community Recycling Network, CREATE UK, Environment Agency, Furniture Recycling Network, Local Authority Recycling Advisory Committee (LARAC), London Community Recycling Network and Waste Watch.Part of the programme, managed by the Community Recycling Network, will involve a Business Support Team delivering support and advice to potential and successful applicants. The team will also facilitate open days and visits to projects demonstrating best practice. The Transforming Waste Programme is part of a larger initiative, Transforming Communities, that is bringing £149m of National Lottery money to environment projects throughout the UK. Transforming Your Space and Renewable Energy programmes are the other parts of Transforming Communities. Michael Singh, Executive Director, RSNC, said: The CRED scheme will provide the community waste sector with the fantastic opportunity of building on its already recognised contribution to achieving Government’s waste strategy targets. The scheme will enable RSNC and the consortium to work closely with the sector to benefit disadvantaged communities and the environment. We take our responsibilities very seriously and will ensure that this considerable sum of lottery money will be used to maximum effect.Anyone requesting a CRED scheme application pack should contact the New Opportunities Fund on 0845 0000 121. £35.2 million Lottery scheme for transforming waste launched About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

At the start of the 5 year marathon, many of us used to be petrified about the idea of failing to submit the assignment beyond the “Last Last Day” — the last permissible date for handing in the project, after the stipulated deadline. I found it quite strange that the senior students displayed little or no trepidation at the thought of the impending deadline, while the rest of us rushed to print and submit. Why? Because the seniors knew that if many students asked for more time, for some reason or another, surely the University is not going to flunk them all. So the “Last Last Day” could easily be extended, and it was.True to form, citing the many requests for extension of time, the Committee for Reforms in Criminal Law (incidentally operating out of a Law School) just went ahead and extended a deadline for submissions, on the date of the deadline. Lest we forget, this is a Committee that has been tasked with possibly one of the most burdensome mandates ever — suggesting reforms to the entire landscape of India’s criminal process, within the sweet time span of six months.This extension of time by the notice of July 17 is just the most recent chapter in what has thus far been an extremely turbulent start to the life of this committee and the consultations it has sought to initiate. Within the few weeks that have passed since the first announcement was made by the Committee about how the consultations will proceed, and from the release of its first Questionnaire on July 4, several representations have been issued expressing serious misgivings about the whole process. These representations (some of which I have been a part of) have, amongst other things, called for (i) abandoning this effort at least while India struggles with Covid-19; (ii) reconstituting the Committee which, in its current form with 5 men sitting in New Delhi, embodies the worst tendencies of prior “reform” efforts and appears akin to the same colonial mindset that the Committee explicitly has set out to remove.But at least for me, what has been particularly galling and difficult to stomach, is the consultation process itself. And that is the focus of my ire.From Moving the Goalposts, to Removing ThemThe Committee presently has a sleek website which, unfortunately, does not manage to distract attention long enough for one to not see the big bundle of fluff that has been offered to us at present. There is no White Paper or Consultation Paper on offer telling us what are the specific areas that have been identified as needing reform and the specific issues that the Committee thinks require consideration. This is not to ask for the moon and the stars, but this is only to highlight what is standard practice for any efforts to carry out law reform in any functioning democracy. What we do have, is an “Aims and Guiding Principles” tab, and other separate tabs outlining “Objectives” for substantive law, procedural law, and the law of evidence. The former is nothing but a collection of the best homilies that one could give for any criminal justice system. The second at least outlines some issues (finally some specifics) but, alas, it does not tell us what is the problem in the first place. And of course, the few specific objectives are couched between wonderfully vague ones such as “Revising foundational definitions and classifications in order to bring the Cr.P.C. in line with modern legal developments”.Basically, while the Committee has suggested that it is time to move some goalposts, what it has actually done is to temporarily remove the goalposts altogether. There are no positions held, no beliefs about what is good or bad about the law. Conveniently, the goalposts shall reappear one day when the Committee so chooses, and we can only hope that do not appear straightaway in the form of draft legislation itself.The Questionnaire ProcessThe removing of goalposts is a problem that has paled into insignificance once we moved into the process of consultations itself. The “Expert Consultation” process was announced, in which there would be two questionnaires each on the three areas of the criminal process flagged above. Responses to each of these questionnaires were due in two weeks time, completing this part of the exercise in twelve weeks. As of July 17, the duration is now four weeks per questionnaire, completing the exercise in 24 weeks, i.e. around four months. Now, as before, all the questionnaires have not been released together. Instead, they will be released in tranches — first substantive law, then procedure, then evidence.The breaking up of the criminal process into silos through these questionnaires is plainly inexplicable. If anything, what is required is a consolidated approach that considers, at the same time, what effects might be borne by the system by tweaking one of its components. So, for instance, how can we be entering into a conversation about defences without having a conversation how any of these defences might be proved in court? But since the former is substantive law and the latter get covered by procedural and evidence law, in this bizarre consultation process we will only ever look at the picture piecemeal and never as a whole.I will try and capture my anguish and frustration at this process with the following image. On July 4, when the first questionnaire was released, it was like the start of a long cycling tour (Tour de France kinds). The race was divided into stages, which came non-stop one after the other. But, here’s the twist: Nobody in this tour knows what will happen at the end of each stage; I might go sideways, or up the mountains, or maybe do hardly anything except flat-track sprints. Nobody even knows where the race will eventually end (since there are no goalposts and they will conveniently appear). And every stage is compressed to make it seem like it is legal to now run the Tour de France on steroids.What made the nightmare particularly harrowing for me (yes, there is still room for things to get worse) is the questionnaire itself. It does not systematically proceed from laying a foundation on general issues to then move into specifics, it does not systematically go through the list of objectives outlines on the website for substantive law. There is not even indication of the broad themes to be covered within the two sets of questionnaires to be released. Instead, it is a scattershot mix of general queries of principle, with clearly loaded questions designed to favour certain answers, and some very pointed questions (the only ones I had the gumption to attempt to answer) such as should marital rape no longer be a defence to rape.All of which we must answer in tiny little boxes of space which keep-expanding. While the 200 word limit has been removed (again, after the questionnaire was released), it is still difficult to not be left feeling that the questionnaire and its overarching undefined consultation process had reduced the task of reforming criminal law to the banality of customer satisfaction forms asking for my opinion on the quality of service. Note, that the Committee has declared that an “Open Consultation” process will also be launched (not yet live), where people can write anything and do not need to feel bound by the questionnaires. The way I see it, the cat comes out of the bag with this one. Tell us, dear Expert, what is the problem with general defences and do our work for us. For a vast majority of the questions, and indeed with the open consults, one is not being asked to consult on a position that the Committee has identified, inasmuch as one is being asked to opine about the desirability of taking a position itself. Will the reform agenda now be determined based on which aspects of the law receive the most criticism in the questionnaire? Is that not the worst kind of majoritarianism on display? I simply do not understand.The Long, Uncertain Road AheadThis is not law reform, it is a nightmare that is going to continue for nobody knows how long. Considering the pathetic publicity that the activities of the Committee have thus far received in the national and local media, it is bound to be a nightmare that only the select few who are invested in the process will have to knowingly suffer through. What does one do? One could choose to participate in this process and salvage what can be salvaged, or fight the process tooth and nail to ensure it receives no legitimacy whatsoever, or do a mixture of both. There is, as always, no right answer. This blog has, and remains in favour of, the argument that the criminal process requires serious attention and consideration. But that consideration cannot be in the nature of an opinion survey asking whether X or Y aspect should go and A or B should come instead in one questionnaire, and later turning attention to the other parts, all of which happens without any clarity about the positions adopted by the Committee which is running the consultation process. A holistic approach which considers the criminal justice “system” will need integration and clarity, not these tranches of questionnaires.It is remarkable that the Committee thinks that it can deliver on its principles within 6 months when a look at India’s history suggests that delivering on those principles, such as primacy of the constitution, is task that we still have not managed to fully achieve. I ask myself, if the country has supposedly suffered with this colonial baggage for over 150 years, why not we spend a few more to try and make sure we don’t end up under a different kind of ideological baggage this time? The impetus for reforming the criminal law has not come very often. It gives a chance to improve the life of each and every citizen and secure the promise of liberty. It is a chance that cannot be squandered.Views are personal only.This article was first published here Next Storylast_img read more

Zookeeper on the mend after tiger attack at Kansas zoo

first_imgFreda Bouskoutas/iStock(TOPEKA, Kan.) — A Kansas zookeeper who was attacked by a Sumatran tiger at the Topeka Zoo over the weekend is on the mend, officials said Monday.The zookeeper, whose name has not been released, was removed from an intensive care unit Sunday night, but remains in a hospital, Molly Hadfield, a spokeswoman for the city of Topeka, told ABC News on Monday.The 17-year employee of the Topeka Zoo was attacked on Saturday by a 275-pound Sumatran tiger named Sanjiv when she entered the animal’s enclosure at about 9:15 a.m., officials said.An investigation into why the zookeeper was in the same enclosure with the 7-year-old tiger is underway.“There really isn’t a circumstance where they should be in the same space. So there was some sort of error that occurred,” Brendan Wiley, director of the Topeka Zoo, told ABC News.Authorities have found no problems with gates or fencing in the exhibit that would suggest the tiger had escaped from a separate locked area while the zookeeper was in the animal’s exhibit.Video from a webcam observed by ABC News showed the zookeeper walking in the tiger’s enclosure, apparently dragging a water hose just before the attack occurred.“As an accredited facility, there’s no policy that would allow that,” Ron Magill, a wildlife expert from the Zoo Miami, said in an interview Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “So that’s going to be the first thing they’re going to look at — how these two were in the same space and why.”Hadfield said authorities are waiting for the zookeeper to recover more before they interview her about why she was in the enclosure with the tiger.The zookeeper suffered lacerations and puncture wounds to her head, neck, back and arms, Wiley said.The attack was witnessed by several visitors, who immediately ran to help, officials said.“Our staff response saved a keeper’s life, saved the tiger’s life, and it truly is a miracle what happened. It could have been so much worse,” Shanna Simpson, animal care supervisor at the zoo, told ABC News.Zoo workers lured Sanjiv back into an enclosed space in the zoo with food, Wiley said. He added that “this could have been a very different outcome.”Sanjiv, who recently fathered four cubs, will not be euthanized because, Wiley said, the tiger was just acting naturally.“While this incident is very unfortunate, he did what a wild tiger does,” Wiley said.The incident marked the third major attack on a human in the U.S. by an animal in captivity in less than five months.In December, Alexandra Black, a 22-year-old intern at the Conservators Center in Burlington, North Carolina, was attacked and killed by a lion while helping to clean out the animal’s enclosure. An investigation determined that a large ball had blocked a gate to a separate holding pen, allowing the lion to escape and get to Black, officials said.Earlier this month, 75-year-old Marvin Hajos was attacked and killed by a cassowary, a large exotic bird similar to an emu, that he kept as a pet on his property in the Gainesville, Florida, suburb of Alachua. The cassowary, which has knife-like claws and is known to animal experts as the “world’s most dangerous bird,” attacked Hojos when he tripped and fell, authorities said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Attendance patterns and behaviour in relation to experience and pair-bond formation in the Wandering Albatross Diomedea exulans at South Georgia

first_imgRecruitment of Wandering Albatrosses Diomedea exulans to the breeding population at South Georgia took between 2 and 8 years after they first returned to their natal colony. In successive seasons, from first return to pairing, the date of arrival became earlier and the number of days spent ashore and the time spent interacting with other birds increased. Pairing birds arrived earlier and spent more time ashore than birds of similar experience which did not pair in that season. In the season following pairing they returned at the same time as breeding birds, but most did not breed; when ashore they spent much of their time alone or with their partner at the nest site. They left in mid‐season before other non‐breeders and bred the following season. Some birds accomplished this process by spending much time (50–60 days) ashore in two or three seasons but most birds spent a similar total time ashore spread over more seasons. Until the season prior to breeding, the number of birds of the opposite sex with whom interactions occurred was proportional to the amount of time spent ashore. There was, therefore, considerable scope for inter‐individual assessment of potential partners before interactions were confined essentially to a single partner in the season before the first breeding attempt.last_img read more

Diel vertical migration of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) is flexible during advection across the Scotia Sea

first_imgWe model a summer snapshot of the behavior of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) during advection across the Scotia Sea. Individual krill respond to a changing landscape of predation risk and food availability by migrating vertically in the column and choosing an average distance to their nearest neighbor (swarm density). We determine the optimal behavior of 30, 40 and 50 mm krill using a state-dependent life history model where individuals move along 30-day segments of hypothetical journey tracks in three different regions of the Scotia Sea, with the tracks extracted from a combination of circulation models and surface drifter data. Food availability is based on satellite data for surface Chl and with additional heterotrophic and detritus food components, and mortality is parameterized with respect to distance from shore, daylight and krill swarming-behavior. We predict that proximity to predator colonies has a distinct effect on behavior, particularly on depth choice when food-availability is low. Observations made during an acoustic survey of the region found swarms to be deeper at the Antarctic Peninsula compared with South Georgia, in line with model pedictions. Our pedictions are also consistent with observations that swarm density, changes little on a logarithmic scale across the region. We show that being able to change behavior on short time scales has distinct advantages to krill.last_img read more
