View … surroundings … view and surroundings, view …The process of including the surroundings into the project came very naturally, therefore we managed to focus primarily in seeking the ideal orientation for the project, in a way that every space in the house enjoys a privileged view of the Chiche river canyon. From the entrance of the project the visitor feels surrounded by nature, without sacrificing privacy required for a property sharing a site with its neighbor. Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoThis house adjusts specifically to its site and environment. The site is located on a hill with a 30% slope. The program has been adapted in levels that follow the heights of the terrain, keeping an angle going toward the house which provides for much privacy from the street side. The external facade provides a very solid skin in contrast with the site’s interior facade made of glass, creating balance. This decision allowed for afternoon sun protection on the West facade as well as letting the morning sun through the internal glass facade. Solid volumes concentrate bedroom areas that sit on the ground, while the lighter glass/metal/wood volume contains social areas that cantilever on the canyon. The roof recreates the profile of the mountains around, simulating an organic blanket in a shape of a hyperbola covering each one of the volumes while embracing the facade.The constructive system is a light weight sandwich that includes a metal structure, thin metal layers to the exterior and wood panels inside, allowing for organic and volatile lines in different areas. This sandwich permits for dry construction and easier plumbing and lighting/electrical installations, without incurring in the complexity of masonry. It also represents a smart thermal solution, creating an air layer that allows fresh air when it is hot outside and saving heat while the weather gets colder, maintaining the house always at a moderate temperature.Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoSave this picture!Section CCSave this picture!© Sebastián CrespoAll above mentioned intentions are expressed in the scale of spaces, resulted from the modulation of the pieces of blocks and metal panels on solid and lighter volumes, plus different systems used for energy and water savings. Modulation of spaces through these materials permitted an optimization of the resources as well as financial savings, construction time cuts as well as debris and waste reduction.Save this picture!© Sebastián CrespoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Sebastián CrespoThe house uses 100% renewable energy through solar panels. Water recycling was made possible through a grey water treatment system, being reused for irrigating and WCs.

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. Alan Clayton Associates has announced a new seminar series that aims to help charities unite and focus on fundraising, with inspired boards, chief executives and senior management teams.The events are designed to help tackle “internal blockages”, which Clayton describes as “the greatest challenge of great fundraising”, with the aim of enabling them to grow their income significantly.At the heart of the seminars is “the Inspiration Imperative”, Clayton’s assertion that “inspiration is not a luxury, but an absolute imperative”.The new series begins with a three-hour shows held in London and Dublin in September and in Manchester and Edinburgh in December.Clayton explained:“Getting the whole organisation lined up behind fundraising is stage one of making great fundraising happen. The best leaders know that culture is everything. Inspiration, across the organisation, is what aligns the culture and allows colleagues to make the organisation more ‘fundraisable.’ The Inspiration Imperative shows fundraisers how to get the best out of the rest of the organisation so that fundraising can flourish.”He added: Advertisement “Our research and experience show that boards need three things to press the button on a huge fundraising surge: trust in the investment plan, belief in the culture and the inspiration of a big idea. It all starts with the big idea. The process of finding the big idea, inspirationally, is what aligns the culture, creates the trust and opens minds to the investment plan.”Participants will receive free resources designed to support the events and which are based on academic research, experience and real results using case studies from around the world.

Trump began feeling symptoms Thursday but has “improved to the point” that his physician, Dr. Sean Conley, could recommend returning to the White House. “Though he may not be entirely out of the woods yet, the team and I agree that all our evaluations, and most importantly, his clinical status, support the president’s safe return home,” Conley said. Trump will continue to take an experimental antiviral drug, remdesivir, according to Conley, who declined to tell reporters if Trump has tested negative for COVID-19. Texas police officer charged with the murder of Jonathan PriceA white Wolfe City police officer, Shaun Lucas, was charged and arrested Monday night by the Texas Rangers for the murder of a Black man who authorities said was walking away from a disturbance at a convenience store last weekend, according to USA Today. Lucas was responding to a disturbance call Saturday evening when he fatally shot Jonathan Price, according to a statement by the Rangers. The officer tried to detain Price, “who resisted in a non-threatening posture and began walking away,” according to the Rangers’ statement. Lucas then tased Price before shooting him with his service weapon, officials said.Lucas’ bond was set at $1 million.Biden expands campaign map as Trump recovers from the coronavirusFormer Vice president and Democratic candidate for the 2020 election, Joe Biden, speaks at Jose Marti Gym in Little Havana, Monday, Oct. 5, 2020, in Miami. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)While Trump recovers from the coronavirus, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has taken advantage of having the campaign trail mostly to himself and aims to hit swing states critical to his victory, according to the Associated Press. Biden has visited Florida two times in the last week to “encroach on some of Trump’s turf” and plans to travel to Arizona later this week. Arizona has not backed a Democratic candidate since 1996.The Biden campaign is “sitting on a massive pile of campaign cash,” which they plan on using for expanded campaign travel with a late-stage ad push in the next month before Election Day. $6 million has been reserved for television airtime in Texas until the end of October, and another $4 million for advertising in Georgia, both states that are historically red.

The court upheld on 3 June a sentence of 26 years on Miguel Galván Gutiérrez (photo) and 16 years on José Ubaldo Izquierdo Hernández.”We greatly regret that the Cuban government refuses to listen to international protests calling for the release of the 26 journalists and the 50 other dissidents arrested at the same time”, said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard.”We fear now that the sentences against the other imprisoned journalists will be confirmed too. The government is going down an increasingly repressive blind alley as shown by the heavy sentences, of up to 28 years in prison for simple offences of opinion.”Ménard also denounced new restrictions on the jailed journalists’ families, most of whom are only being allowed to visit them once every three months instead of every three weeks as the rules state. This is in addition to their transfer to prisons hundreds of kilometres from their homes, making visits difficult and expensive. The Internet website cubanet.org reported on 21 May that the wife of journalist Pedro Argüelles Morán was only told after she arrived to see him at the prison in Santa Clara (west-central Cuba) that he had been sent to another, in Combinado del Este (Havana), another 270 kms away from his home in Morón. The Russian news agency Prima News reported on 3 June that journalist Adolfo Fernández Sainz and several other jailed dissidents had begun a hunger-strike to demand their right to see their families more often. The conditions of detention of several of the journalists are very bad and at least five are reportedly ill. Reporters Without Borders said it was especially worried about Oscar Espinosa Chepe (photo), who has serious liver problems and internal bleeding, and called for his transfer to hospital in Havana. On 31 May, after strong international protests, he was taken from the prison in Guantanamo to a hospital in Santiago.His wife Miriam Leiva said this was a “farce” because health care at the hospital was no better than at the prison, where officials had not even given him the medicine she had brought for him. She called for his transfer to a Havana hospital. The appeal against his 20-year sentence was heard on 4 June and judgment was reserved.Last month, a dozen independent journalists who decided to continue their activities despite the crackdown were threatened with heavy prison sentences by security officials if they persisted. Reporters Without Borders deplored the Cuban supreme court’s confirmation of sentences imposed on two of the 26 independent journalists arrested at the end of March and since jailed for lengthy terms.

News Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” AfghanistanAsia – Pacific RSF_en Organisation November 28, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Taliban attack press in North Waziristan to go further News News June 2, 2021 Find out more March 11, 2021 Find out more May 3, 2021 Find out more RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Receive email alerts Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemned Taliban reprisals against the press in North Waziristan in response today to an inaccurate report carried by several national and international media. A journalist’s son was kidnapped for several hours, media offices were attacked, copies of newspapers were burned and a two-day ban on newspaper distribution was proclaimed.“The Taliban reaction to an erroneous news report was out of all proportion,” the press freedom organisation said. “Caught in the crossfire between jihadists, the security forces and tribal chiefs, journalists work in extremely difficult conditions in the tribal areas. These incidents, combined with the detention of two Pakistani journalists by Afghan Taliban, highlight the dangers for reporters in this region.”Taliban stormed into the office of Haji Pazir, a journalist working for Urdu and English-language media, today in Miranshah (in North Waziristan), kidnapped his son and interrogated Pazir in an attempt to find out who was responsible for a false report about the death of several jihadist militants in the area. They also took copies of newspapers and burned them in the centre of the town. Pazir’s son was freed a few hours later.“The Taliban were questioning all the journalists and threatening them to get them to reveal who wrote this false report,” Pazir told Reporters Without Borders.A report posted yesterday on the BBC World Service’s Urdu-language website that was picked up by the Pakistani news agency Online and several Pakistani newspapers wrongly described the death of four Taliban as the first serious incident since the signing of an accord between the authorities and the Islamists. The BBC’s Urdu-language service apologised later yesterday, blaming the mistake on a technical problem.The Taliban subsequently announced a two-day ban on the sale of newspapers in the North Waziristan tribal area. “The final decision will be up our Shura (council),” Taliban spokesman Abdullah Farhad told journalists in Peshawar.Two journalists who were detained by Taliban in Afghanistan were Syed Saleem Shahzad of the daily The Star and Asia Times Online, and Quetta-based freelancer Qamar Yousafzai. They were held for five days in the Afghan province of Helmand for entering the province without Taliban permission. They were able to contact their families today from the border town of Chaman (in Balochistan province) following their release on 26 November. They were expected to return to Karachi soon.

The petitioner’s counsel, Advocate K Rajeev, submitted that the amendment made to Rule 60 of Part I of the Kerala Service Rules was arbitrary and discriminatory as the benefit of increased retirement age was denied to employees who had joined service before 01.04.2013.The counsel pointed out that the retirement age of Central Government employees was 60.During the hearing, Justice Chandrachud orally asked the counsel : “So, you want the best of both worlds – statutory pension and retirement age at 60?”.The petitioners had earlier approached the Kerala Administrative Tribunal with their prayer. However, the KAT dismissed their application. Challenging that, they approached the High Court of Kerala.On July 29, 2020, a division bench of Justices A M Shaffique and P Gopinath dismissed their petition observing that the amendment was brought by the Kerala Government to shift to a new scheme of pension based on the Contributory Pension System evolved by the Central Government.”The new pension system for State Government employees has been implemented to those who were appointed in service on or after 1.4.2013. Once the National Pension System is implemented on the basis of the statutory provision, the employee can continue service until the age of 60 years. It is under such circumstances that the retirement for the employees coming under the National Pension System has been enhanced to 60 years. The Rule has also been amended to incorporate the retirement age of employees who were governed by the National Pension System. Therefore, as far as the employees who are appointed on or after 1.4.2013 are concerned, their service conditions are entirely different”, the High Court observed.Therefore, the HC held that the distinction between employees who had joined service before 01.04.2013 and after the said date was based on an “intelligible differentia”.”The existing employees were governed by the pension rules where the age of retirement is stated to be 56 years, whereas when a shift has been made to the National Pension System pursuant to the change in policy, appointees who were appointed on or after 1.4.2013 has been permitted to remain in service up to the age of 60 years. The object to be achieved for the aforesaid classification is justifiable and hence the amendment to Rule 60 of Part III KSR is not in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution of India”, the HC observed.

Previous Article Next Article I have made it to a third interview for an HR manager’s post. I wasexpecting this to be an interview with directors, but have found out it is tobe a psychometric test. My company looked closely at using this method but wereunconvinced by the approach. We tested people who have proven track records withina certain field only to find that the test results did not match what we ‘knew’to be true. I don’t like the idea of being tested on this basis. What do youthink? Should I tell them about my misgivings? Clive Sussams, recruitment consultant,Malpas Flexible Learning As you are probably aware, it is not unusual for candidates to have eitherpsychometric testing or to attend an assessment centre as part of the selectionprocess for roles at senior officer and above. It is quite understandable that you will have an opinion about the relevanceand suitability of psychometric testing as you are an HR professional.Consequently, if you are unhappy with the selection approach I think you shoulddiscuss your misgivings with the company. If, however, the organisationnormally uses psychometric testing as part of its selection procedure it isunlikely that an exception will be made in your case. You will need to decide how committed you are to pursuing this particularjob. If it is a good opportunity and you believe your skills will be enhanced,then it will be necessary to undertake the appropriate testing. Remember if you obtain the HR manager’s job you will be in an ideal positionto influence the recruitment process in the future, including the relevance oftesting! Allison Sheard, consultant, Chiumento Psychometrics are commonly used as part of the selection process for seniorroles and many organisations value the information they give about prospectivecandidates. Usually test results form only a part of the information about a candidate,the rest being gained from interview and/or demonstration of skills. If youwere to decline to take part in psychometric tests, or highlight yourmisgivings, you run the risk of being taken out of the selection process altogether.Even if you were unhappy about the tests you used with your currentemployer, a prospective one is likely to take a negative view of someone whodoes not want to take part in the full selection process. Overall, psychometric testing can be a very useful part of the recruitmentprocess. Taking the tests and getting feedback on them may also help you feelmore positive about the nature of tests and their validity. Louise White, consultant – EJ Human Resources You need to be careful how you approach the issue with a future employer, asthey may not take too kindly to someone questioning their interview process. Itis not unreasonable though to find out exactly how the tests are going to beused and how much influence the results will have on the final decision. In my experience, they are normally used to complement the interview processand iron out any concerns over issues such as whether or not you are a teamplayer etc. It would be very unusual for a candidate to be rejected on testresults alone.
