MOP House / AGi Architects

The site can be accessed from either side of the surrounding streets to allow for both a private and a public entrance. After moving along a curved wall that guides the visitor from the exterior of the plot into the center, one reaches the main entrance into the house. Upon entering through the main door frame, the space opens up to reveal the swimming pool and the public living areas of the house. The form of the residence is reminiscent of the movement patterns of a mop, from which flexible volumes are organized diagonally around a central axis. This axis twists upwards to generate spaces that are channeling the vision in different directions: the front side of the house, side gardens and angles of the back street.Save this picture!first floor planRecommended ProductsWindowsSolarluxSliding Window – CeroEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40The circulation surrounding the patio on the first floor contrives of a succession of living spaces, which not only communicate to one another, but also relate visually the interior of the patio to the exterior. The first floor overhangs to shade the rooms on the ground floor, and the patio is designed to define a break in between the volumes of the house, which subtly reveals a side garden. The residence was originally planned to house one family with two small children, however in the future it could be divided into two units. The structure of the house and the distribution of the circulation, as well as the positioning of the entrances and lift allows for guaranteed privacy between parents and children in the prospective future.Save this picture!© Nelson GarridoProject gallerySee allShow less2G / Pezo von EllrichshausenArticlesIn Progress: PARKROYAL on Pickering / WOHAArticles Share MOP House / AGi ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMOP House / AGi Architects Houses Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/220114/mop-house-agi-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Kuwait City, Kuwait “COPY” ArchDailycenter_img 2011 MOP House / AGi Architects “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/220114/mop-house-agi-architects Clipboard Kuwait Save this picture!© Nelson Garrido+ 13 Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeAGi ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesKuwait CityKuwaitPublished on March 28, 2012Cite: “MOP House / AGi Architects” 28 Mar 2012.

Wet 2015 a Good Year to Research Nitrogen Loss

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Wet 2015 a Good Year to Research Nitrogen Loss SHARE Wet 2015 a Good Year to Research Nitrogen Loss Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleParis Attacks Will Pressure Oil PricesNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank SHARE 2015 PFR resultsThis planting and growing season was flush with Mother Nature challenges, but it created plenty of opportunity to learn for those ag researchers who dealt with the same problems in their plots. Practical Farm Research is a staple at Beck’s Hybrids, and the program director, Ryan McAllister told HAT their research adjusted on the fly this year with the wet spring and early summer.“We came in and did some Y-Drop rescue applications of nitrogen,” he said. “We did some late season foliar feeds trying to just get rid of some of those nutrient deficiencies that were out there. And if we do that in a year like this then we’re better prepared to make good agronomic recommendations to our growers in future years.”So 2015 was a perfect year to learn what works in protecting nitrogen. McAllister said you would expect nitrogen stabilizers to pay more this year than in other years, and their studies confirmed that.“Over the last two years we’ve had two products rise to the top and that would be Agrotain Plus and Instinct II. Those two have really risen. This year Agrotain Plus averaged a 14.3 bushel increase and over $30 an acre return on investment. Those are the things we’re looking for, more ROI than we are bushels, that’s really what matters. So stabilizers paid additional, nitrogen paid. So when we think about that we’ve got multiyear data, multi-location data as well, on nitrogen rates and timing. The one thing we saw this year that did not change from previous years was the split applications of nitrogen paid so putting at least 30 units of N down whether that be 2 X 2 or down with some dry fertilizer and coming back between V3 and V6 that’s your highest net return.”Based on trials this year and historic averages, McAllister says 180-185 pounds of nitrogen should be considered the base, moving higher from that level based on what the weather is. Listen to the HAT interview to learn about spring recommendations:Ryan McAllister-Becks PFR updateThe new book documenting this year’s PFR trials will be available at beckshybrids.com this week and goes in the mail to farmers the first week of December.

Drydown Going Well In Eastern Indiana

first_img Drydown Going Well In Eastern Indiana Home Indiana Agriculture News Drydown Going Well In Eastern Indiana SHARE Previous articleAg Economist Says Store New Crop CornNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter SHARE Drydown Going Well In Eastern IndianaEric MillerTwo weeks of warm dry weather have provided some good drying conditions for early planted crops in East Central Indiana. Harvesting of corn planted in April is underway; and DuPont Pioneer agronomist Eric Miller says crop moisture levels are coming down fast, “When we started harvesting the April planted corn a few weeks ago, we had moisture levels in the mid to upper 20% range. Today we are down to the low 20% and even into the teens.”But, growers are still being urged to prioritize their fields because in some areas stalk rot is a serious issue. Miller states, “We have had ear mold issues and even some premature death; and, for those fields, growers need to keep an eye on standability.” He added, while it is not a major problem, growers need to be aware of how their fields are doing.As for the corn that was planted in late May, which represents the majority of the corn in this part of the state, Miller says harvest is still a ways off, “I think we still have several weeks to go on the May planted corn. In fact, I think most guys will go and get the soybeans before they harvest the late planted corn.”  This late corn is mostly doing well and benefited from the late season rains.Miller says the soybeans are looking good and early yield reports are outstanding, “It is not uncommon to hear field averages in the 80 bpa range.” He added soybean size is good as is the number of pods per plant.Listen for the complete update from Eric Miller on the crops page of our web site.The Pioneer Poll this week asks about your crop moisture. Share your numbers with us by responding to the poll on-line, or by texting 22333 then entering hatpoll and finally your percentage of moisture. The HAT weekly poll is sponsored by DuPont Pioneer.

Armenian newspapers threatened by libel suits with sky-high damages awards

first_imgNews June 8, 2021 Find out more News ArmeniaEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders is concerned about all the libel actions being brought against Armenian newspapers and the disproportionate damages being demanded, which threaten their survival and create a climate that encourages self-censorship. This tendency to use lawsuits to throttle news media must be reined in. The repeal of jail sentences for libel and slander in April 2010 was hailed as a democratic advance but judicial harassment of the media continues. There were 12 defamation actions during the first quarter of 2011 alone. Independent newspapers are the leading targets. The daily Jamanak is currently the subject of three different lawsuits. Haykakan Jamanak and Hraparak are also being sued. In most cases the plaintiffs are politicians. On 18 April, Armenia’s highest appeal court ordered the news website Hetq, founded by the NGO Investigative Journalists, to pay Ijevan mayor Tavush Marz 450,000 drams (820 euros) in damages and publish a retraction. The suit was brought over a series of articles about embezzlement by local officials. Having exhausted all possibilities of appeal in Armenia, the NGO says it will take the case to the European Court of Human Rights.Former president Robert Kocharian’s family are frequent plaintiffs. His wife, Bella Kocharian, and son, Sedrak Kocharian, are suing Jamanak for 6 million drams (11,000 euros) over a September 2011 article implicating them in an alleged case of embezzlement. The newspaper Haykakan Jamanak has already been ordered to pay Levon Kocharian 3.5 million drams (6,400 euros) in damages.The former president himself recently sued Hraparak over a 2 February article describing him as “bloodthirsty” and subject to “fits of madness.” While there may have been grounds for a libel action, there were certainly no grounds for his request for a freeze on the newspaper’s assets, which was granted at the first hearing.The order was rescinded on 11 April, but the former president’s action is still dangerous inasmuch as it suggest that the real of goal of defamation suits is to bankrupt independent media. The OSCE, to which Armenia belongs, has a clear position on this: “The amount of the fine should not reach the ceiling of bankruptcy of the media outlets or individual journalists, nor should it endanger their normal work.”In most cases, the courts seem to do what the plaintiffs want, imposing the maximum amount of damages. On 7 February, Haykakan Jamanak was ordered to pay 2,440,000 drams (nearly 16,000 dollars) in damages to each of the three parliamentarians – Ruben Hayrapetyan, Samuel Aleksanyan and Levon Sargsyan – who sued it over a 14 October article quoting a list of Armenian officials and businessmen allegedly involved in criminal activity. Editor Hayk Gevorgyan said he was amazed by the court’s verdict and has decided to appeal.As well as the large amounts in damages demanded by plaintiffs, newspapers must also pay excessive lawyers’ fees. The abuses are such that the council of the Armenian Chamber of Lawyers has approved a proposed directive imposing a ceiling of 300,000 drams (6,400 euros) on fees in defamation cases. It has been submitted to the legal department, which will decide whether it should go into effect.Reporters Without Borders is following all of these cases closely. As well as those already mentioned, Reporters Without Borders will also attend the upcoming hearings in the parliamentarian Tigran Arzakantsian’s lawsuit against the newspaper Yerkir and the lawsuit that the company Glendale Hills has brought against Jamanak.Reporters Without Borders has urged participants in the forum on media freedom held by the human rights ombudsman in Yerevan to discuss ways to limit defamation suits. Media self-regulation should be developed and, when legal actions are brought, the courts should respect the principle of proportionality when awarding damages.

As consumers demand the new technologies, we will see increased adoption or acquisition of fintech by banks to serve consumers.”In addition, Blumberg believes the fintech revolution is expanding the market, thereby positioning some pure play fintech startups to become large financial institutions of the future.However, the survey notes that with major breaches in security at large established financial institutions, like Equifax, Americans are worried of new financial technologies and are skeptical if institutions are trustworthy—76 percent of respondents worry about security with some of the new online banking and payment services. According to the survey, this increased from 72 percent in 2016.Blumberg continued to explain that while the average consumer may hesitate to change from traditional banking to emerging fintech products and services, the potential benefits might become too valuable to ignore.”These results indicate that for fintech startups to scale and thrive, they need to provide a product or service that is substantially better, not just incrementally better than traditional banks. At the same time, if banks don’t adapt and adopt new technologies they risk losing the next generation of customers,” Blumberg said.To view the full report, click here.

It was submitted before the bench that the petitioner apprehends that the Executing Court may not follow the Supreme Court’s Judgment in Gurpreet Singh v. UOI (2006) 8 SCC 457. In this context, the bench observed:”We make it clear that this apprehension is totally without basis for the reason that all Courts in this country, including the Executing Court, are bound by the judgment of the Apex Court.”Observing thus, the bench disposed the special leave petition.In Gurpreet Singh, the constitution bench had held that the claimants would be entitled for interest on solatium and additional market value if the award of the Reference Court or that of the appellate Court does not specifically refer to the question of interest on solatium and additional market value or where the claim had not been rejected either expressly or impliedly.The apprehension raised by the petitioner was because in paragraph 27 of the judgment, the High Court said that the writ petition filed by Government was liable to be allowed, although it was only partly allowed.Justice Nariman led bench had made similar remarks in another order recently. “We must remind the Magistrates all over the country that in our pyramidical structure under the Constitution of India, the Supreme Court is at the Apex, and the High Courts, though not subordinate administratively, are certainly subordinate judicially.” the court had said while holding that the directions issued in Asian Resurfacing of Road Agency Private Limited. vs. Central Bureau of Investigation ought to be followed.Article 141 of the Constitution states that the law declared by the Supreme Court shall be binding on all courts within the territory of India.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
