The 16,000 sft site of the Krishnan house had several existing and mature trees and we envisioned a relatively low-slung architectural expression that would be interpretive of a vernacular aesthetic, while accommodating its green surroundings.An architecture of sloped Mangalore tiled roofs and rough-cut Shira stone cladding contrasts with floors of rough and polished Kota and joinery of teak.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil J.On entry, a series of vertical ribbed timber louvers provide a gentle divider between the threshold of the house and the garden beyond. Entry is either to the study on one side and the main living space on the other.Save this picture!PlanThe living space is a grand volume of 25ft with two slopes of the roof at differing heights separated by a clerestory window. Its verticality is emphasized by large floor-to-ceiling windows with sheer linen blinds that provide soft light in the mornings from the northeast. Large overhangs on the southwest protect against the harsh afternoon sun while horizontal timber louvers provide for natural cooling via a stack effect and act as sun breakers. The living areas open to a wooden deck that continues into a wrap around verandah overlooking a lush internal courtyard garden. Almost all the spaces on the ground and first level visually flow into it.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil J.The central feature of the living space is a burnt orange spiral staircase sculpted out of a shell of mild steel and housing timber treads. The Large expanses of grey Kota are contrasted with a bright color palette of turquoise, violet, red and mustard. The bold Ikat patterned carpet provides a vibrant base on which pieces by Moroso, Minotti, Riva and Poliform sit alongside other furniture designed by Khosla Associates. The central cluster of Mori fabric pendant lamps were sourced from New York based design house Rich Brilliant Willing, complemented by other light fixtures by Tom Dixon and Isamu Noguchi. The butterfly sculpture on the wall is Sunil Gawde’s ‘Secret Garden’ and other paintings are by young Bangalore based contemporary artists Shivkumar and Suresh Kumar.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil J.The spatial flow takes into consideration the family’s requirement of segregating public and private space. The ground floor has living, study, dining, puja, home theatre, 2 kitchens, and 2 guest rooms while the upper level has 3 bedrooms, a yoga and meditation space and a family room.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil J.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Shamanth Patil J.On the garden side, the study and the living rooms flow into their respective verandahs that hug a large pebbled fishpond. An existing tree emerges from the water and is uniquely framed by the study,the living and foyer on three sides.Save this picture!© Shamanth Patil J.We were driven to create a contextually sensitive and sustainable design by maximizing local materials, using clay tiled roofs to keep the house cool, large overhangs to protect against sun and rain, and cross ventilation to keep the house breathing at all times.

United protest wants good jobs at a fair wage

first_imgWW photo: G. DunkelNew York — Carpenters, car wash workers, college professors, janitors, fast food workers and many others came together Dec. 6 in Times Square to demand good jobs at fair wages. The “Grand Bargain” currently being hashed out in Washington, which will involve cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid under the threat of the so-called fiscal cliff, was also denounced.As one speaker put it: “They bailed out the banks to the tune of $19 trillion. They’ve got enough for us!”A speaker for the Carpenters Union, one of the many construction unions present, called for “better wages, better benefits for everybody. I used to make minimum wage and now that I’m making better, I’m standing up for those who are not making it.” Unions for all workers is what would solve the financial crisis in this country, in his opinion.“You can’t raise a family on minimum wage,” Pamela Flood, a Burger King worker with three children, said on stage at the rally. “With food and diapers, my paycheck is gone after two days. We need a change.”A member of the Professional Staff Congress, which represents faculty and staff at the City University of New York, felt that his union’s lack of a contract makes it easier to see the need for solidarity with fast-food workers, who have no contract because they have no union representing them.“Make the Road,” which describes itself as a mostly Latino/a organization based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, had a strong contingent that demanded an increase in the minimum wage. Their signs said, “$7.25 no es suficiente! $7.25 that ain’t right!” They also said that income equality is important regardless of a worker’s sexual ­orientation.At the beginning of the rally, the large assemblage blocked 7th Avenue, a major thoroughfare in Manhattan, at the start of rush hour. The cops brought in barricades and tried to push the demonstrators back. The crowd didn’t move until a speaker said that the cops would otherwise prevent the program from happening.The Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union took about 150 people from the demonstration down to the Soho Car Wash, which they have organized, to demand the owner negotiate. 99 Pickets, a working group of Occupy Wall Street, took a group of people into a nearby McDonald’s to point out that the workers there need a union.Other groups went to the Long Island Rail Road portion of Penn Station with leaflets asking the riders to pressure their congressional representatives to oppose the “Grand Bargain” and authorize support money for Sandy recovery.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

New Delhi police fail to take action in response to death threats against journalist

first_imgSuch hate campaigns against journalists can have tragic results, as was the case with Gauri Lankesh, a newspaper editor who was gunned down outside her Bangalore home in September 2018.India is ranked 140th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the New Delhi police to take immediate, concrete measures to guarantee the safety of Rakesh Raman, a journalist who has filed three complaints about the harassment and death threats to which he has been subjected without so far eliciting any police action. RSF_en The founder and editor of the Raman Media Network website, Raman has been the target of insults, death threats and even bogus eviction notices on social networks in recent months for investigative reporting that fails to toe the line set by India’s ruling BJP, a party notorious for the online praise its receives from its troll army. The threats stepped up at the start of August with calls for Raman to be shot after he published an article referring to the concerns expressed by the UN secretary-general about human rights violations in Kashmir.  He filed two complains with the police in August, which were ignored, and he filed a third complaint on 22 September After being contacted by Raman on 27 August, RSF wrote to law and justice minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and home minister Shri Amit Shah, drawing their attention to the lack of any action by the police after the first two complaints. RSF is still awaiting a response from these two ministers. Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independence ImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence Hate campaign Organisation “The police have an obligation to conduct an investigation when a complaint is filed,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “Either the police are being negligent, which is unacceptable, given the situation, or they are deliberately refusing to take Rakesh Raman’s safety seriously, which makes them complicit. Either way, it is high time for them to respond by identifying those responsible for these threats and bringing them to justice, and by providing Raman with police protection.”center_img Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independence ImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence September 25, 2019 New Delhi police fail to take action in response to death threats against journalist “I am unable to move about and work freely,” he told RSF, explaining that he is afraid to leave home for fear of being attacked. The complicit silence from the Indian authorities and BJP’s leaders about the threats by BJP supporters against journalists is a shocking and growing phenomenon in India. After RSF alerted the UN in November 2018 about a surge in death threats against Swati Chaturvedi, a woman journalist, five UN special rapporteurs sent a joint letter to the Indian government calling for action in response to these intimidation campaigns. Rakesh Raman, a journalist who founded the RMN website, conducts an awareness campaign about the importance of education on the streets of Delhi in July 2017. (photo: RMN Foundation) News Help by sharing this information RSF had previously issued press releases about a hate campaign against the freelance journalist Rana Ayyub in April 2018, and about the following month’s death threats against NDTV journalist Ravish Kumar in response to his book criticizing the government.last_img read more

Precinct 1 focus of road projectsProposed steps may help crumbling streets

first_img Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Evans Kessey is the director of the Ector County Highways and Streets Department. The Ector County Highways and Streets Department will begin the next steps that will lead to repairing deteriorating county roads. The Commissioners’ Court approved a request for qualifications Tuesday to serve as a screening step for firms and services. The procurement process is not a bid, but allows firms to present their qualifications for the requested engineering and project management services prior to the Court’s approval of the specific county road projects. The department’s 2019 project plan suggests reconstruction and rehabilitation pavement improvements that would aim to preserve, extend the life and increase load carrying capacity of existing roadways. The majority of tasks are focused in Precinct 1. Highways and Streets Department Director Evans Kessey said he is focused more on repairing entire road systems that are a concern than fixing potholes. Public Works Project Manager David Peck previously explained to county residents during a town hall in October that just repairing potholes would not be enough to address infrastructure problems. “Our goal is to quit doing these temporary patches and do some really good resurfacing to where we don’t have cracks and issues,” Peck said. He said potholes would be likely to return after repair if issues like drainage and road capacity were not addressed first. Kessey said although Moss Avenue received attention in 2015 with a widening project, it is back on the department’s radar due to cracks in the pavement caused by increased oilfield traffic. He said West Edna Street and Knox Avenue are facing similar problems with more people using those roadways. Kessey said improving the riding surface of Moss Avenue from Interstate 20 past West University Boulevard to West 57th Street would be a goal. He also plans to propose items to the Court about widening Knox Avenue and extending the right-of-way on 57th Street, north of Murray Fly Elementary, to better accommodate the needs of that area. The ad hoc transportation committee formed in June is continuing to support Kessey in prioritizing county roadway projects. The committee consists of five members: Kessey, Public Works Project Manager David Peck, Precinct 3 Commissioner Dale Childers, Chamber of Commerce Member Roy Allen and county resident Martin Zuniga. While Kessey turns his attention more toward new reconstruction projects to consider for the future, he said the committee hones in on already deteriorating roadways and works to find ways and means of preserving those roadways. He said members rank prioritization based off of factors such as congestion, safety, system preservation, right-of-way and operational efficiency. “We just bring whatever expertise we have to the plate so that there’s not just one person tasked with making all of the decisions,” Peck said. Kessey encourages the public to reach out to those on the committee to express their roadway concerns.
