The setting is the Stockholm archipelago, natural ground sloping gently down to the sea in the south, mostly open with a few trees and bushes. Unlike other projects we worked on located on more isolated islands in the archipelago without car access from the mainland, this site was relatively easy to reach also with heavy transports. This, together with the client’s desire for a maintenance-free house inspired us to search for a way to design the house as an integral part of nature, where the material’s weight and color scale connects to the archipelago granite bedrock, rather than a light light wooden cottage. The two building volumes are placed side by side and form a line that clarifies their position in the landscape, just at the border where the forest opens up out onto the bay. When approached from the north, the entrance presents itself as an opening between the buildings giving direction towards the light and water. It is a first outdoor space protected from rain by a pitched canopy of glass. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanThe exterior character of the house is derived from a number of transverse gable roofs, which connect to each other, and like boathouses in a line form a pleated long facade. This provides a sequence of varied room heights for the interior and create places in the otherwise completely open living room that stretches through the entire length of the main building. With a relatively shallow room depth and a continuous sliding glass partition out to the terrace, the space can be described as a niche in relation to the archipelago landscape outside. The small rooms are located along the north façade with access through a wall of sliding doors. They are lit by openable skylights and form smaller pitched ceiling spaces within the main roof volume. Save this picture!© Åke E:son LindmanTerrace, interior floors and facades are made of exposed natural colored in situ cast concrete with plywood formwork. The interior is painted white with woodworks in ash. A sauna, a detached block of in situ cast concrete with a wooden interior, offers a secluded place near the beach and pier.

However, those organisations which already have charitable status for tax purposes from HMRC are unaffected.The Social Development Minister is considering whether the legislation requires amendment. This may mean that the Northern Ireland Assembly will have to agree new primary legislation. The timescale for this is currently unclear, as it depends on a number of different factors. As soon as this becomes clear the Commission says it will provide updated information on timescales for registration.The Charity Commission says it is continuing to prepare for the new regulatory regime by putting appropriate staffing resources and organisational structures in place.Any organisation in Northern Ireland which operates for charitable purposes may continue to apply to HMRC for charitable tax status which, if granted, will entitle the institution to certain tax benefits, according the Commission.www.dsdni.gov.uk/charity-commission Legislation glitch delays charity registration AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Union of India , especially after the Constitution (103rd) Amendment, 2019 introduced certain changes to the Constitution of India.The bench headed by Justice L. Nageswara Rao disagreed with the contention that these appeals require reference to a larger Bench on the ground of the extent of reservations. It said: Undoubtedly, this Court in Indra Sawhney (supra) held that reservations contemplated in Article 16 (4) should not exceed 50 per cent except in certain extraordinary situations. This Court in Indra Sawhney (supra) was of the opinion that extreme caution has to be exercised and a special case must be made out for exceeding the limit of 50 per cent. The ceiling limit of 50 per cent on reservations has been re-affirmed by this Court in M. Nagaraj (supra). As the question relating to the extent of reservation has already been decided by this Court, it cannot be said that any substantial question of law as to the interpretation of the Constitution arises in this case.The bench, also comprising Justices Hemant Gupta and S. Ravindra Bhat, observed that it finds force in the contentions raised regarding the interpretation of the Constitution (102nd Amendment) Act, 2018. One of the issues that was considered by the High Court at the instance of the writ petitioners is whether the Constitution (102nd Amendment) Act, 2018 affects the competence of the State Legislature to declare a particular caste to be a socially and educationally backward class. According to the writ petitioners in the High Court, the State Legislature has been denuded of this power after the Constitution (102nd Amendment) Act, 2018 came into force. The High Court rejected the said contention and upheld the legislative competence of the State Legislature. There is no authoritative pronouncement on the interpretation of the provisions inserted by the Constitution (102nd Amendment) Act, 2018. We are satisfied that interpretation of Articles 338-B and 342-A, which are inserted by Constitution (102nd Amendment) Act, 2018, involves a substantial question of law as to the interpretation of the Constitution and the determination of such question is necessary for the disposal of the Appeal. Thus, as mandated by Article 145 (3) of the Constitution of India, these Appeals require to be considered by a larger Bench. In view of our decision to refer these Appeals to a larger Bench, we do not consider it necessary to adjudicate on the other points raised by the applicants.While referring the matters to larger bench, the Court observed:As the interpretation of the provisions inserted by the Constitution (102nd Amendment) Act, 2018 is a substantial question of law as to the interpretation of the Constitution of India, these Appeals are referred to a larger Bench. These matters shall be placed before Hon’ble The Chief Justice of India for suitable orders.To grant interim order, the bench observed that the State of Maharashtra has not shown any extraordinary situation for providing reservations to Marathas in excess of 50 per cent rule expounded in Indra Sawhney judgment. Maratha community which comprises of 30 per cent of the population in the State of Maharashtra cannot be compared to marginalized sections of the society living in far flung and remote areas, it said. Click here to Read/Download OrderRead Order Next Storylast_img read more

Union deal cuts cases

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. A pioneering partnership deal between armed forces retailer Naafi and union MSF aims to cut the number of cases taken to employment tribunals.As part of the agreement, senior HR staff at Naafi and MSF officials review dismissal cases soon after the event. The cases can be referred by either side.HR director Mike Nicholson said the reviews mean any failings on the part of management can be picked up early on, removing the need for costly out-of-court settlements at a later stage.He said, “We are not always going to agree and in that case the process would proceed as before. But where we have dismissed someone and have not entirely followed the right process we would agree compensation there and then.”Similarly, where we agree that management acted fairly, the union will not support that case.”Nicholson said the move is cutting legal costs and the amount of unnecessary friction between management and staff. He added, “What we want to do is bring the whole question of industrial relations into the 21st century. We believe there is no case for industrial action. If you want a successful business, management and unions really need to work together.”FeedbackFor HR professionals, the Acas report finally provides confirmation of a trend many have experienced first hand. Whether it be as a result of the Employment Relations Act or the recently implemented Human Rights Act, employers can be in no doubt that staff now have far more avenues through which they can pursue grievances. Richard Allen, HR director at HM Customs & Excise, said, “We have not seen a noticeable change in claims over the past year but I think the big change for us could be the Human Rights Act.” Bruce Warman, a member of the Acas council and personnel director at Vauxhall Motors, said, Good practices and procedures that mean you will get fewer cases. Otherwise you are going to get swamped. HR cannot use the tribunal system as a way of avoiding having good industrial relations.” Rita Donaghy, Acas chair, added that it would be several years before firm conclusions can be drawn .She said, “I think we need time for the legislation to settle down before we can see whether it is part of a compensation culture.

Southern Ocean isoscapes derived from a wide-ranging circumpolar marine predator, the Antarctic fur seal

first_imgThe large-scale spatial patterns and primary drivers of food web dynamics across seascapes can be investigated using isotope ratios in marine consumers. However, interpreting complex signatures from mobile animals can require good knowledge of spatial isotopic variations in the environment. This is particularly true in the Southern Ocean where regional differences in the physical environment affect habitat predictability and predator foraging. We applied a retrospective-isotope approach integrated with tracking locations for a model species, the Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella), to generate large-scale spatially-explicit predictions of isotopic gradients (“isoscapes”) across the Southern Ocean. Vibrissae and blood samples were collected during post- and pre-breeding periods from both Antarctic and sub-Antarctic breeding environments. Stable isotope values from vibrissae growth and serially sampled blood enabled the reconstruction of an isotopic time-series that could be directly related to feeding locations at sea. Tracked seals were widely distributed in the southern Atlantic and Indian Oceans, with important foraging activity centred on productive upwelling areas, oceanic frontal zones and shelf environments. Corresponding seal δ13C and δ15N values were positively correlated to the Southern Ocean latitudes at which the tracked individuals foraged. Breeding site, bi-monthly foraging period and foraging location all explained significant variation in isotopic values during migration. Isotopic variation was largely driven by the latitudinal and inshore/offshore gradient in δ13C and δ15N at the base of the food web in neritic and oceanic waters. These delineate the spatio-temporal isotopic variability of important foraging habitats, providing a valuable perspective on the spatial and seasonal distribution of predators and forage availability. Differences in inferred predator distribution within and between breeding locations have implications for relative exposure to anthropogenic threats from fisheries interactions and climate change. This study demonstrates that isotope tracers in archival tissues are useful indicators of resource partitioning by marine consumers to directly inform spatial conservation planning and ecosystem management strategies at the cross-basin scale.last_img read more
