The suite houses were built on the lot of a former store from the 80s. Four of the houses are located on the „meadow“ – a green roof above the shops in the parterre of the building. The space between the individual houses offers views of the far horizons of the mountain meadows. The atmosphere among these houses is intimate but neighborly. The roof garden covers commercial spaces and garages. The mountain town and ski resort Pec pod Sněžkou originated from the earlier original buildings in the valley, that expanded toward the surrounding hills. Slowly, large tourist accommodation and hotels emerged. The core character of the area is shaped by the individually standing buildings along the main street that are in close contact with the surrounding nature.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!Situation PlanSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe atmosphere is captured by a road rising through the valley along-side streams and by the openings between houses that allow a view of the further planes of the village and the cabins scattered on the meadows. The design of four apartment buildings continues the thread of these qualities and develops and further elaborates on them. On the investor’s parcel in the village center on a visually exposed spot, there used to stand the small department store Sněžka from the 80s. The long mass of the building gave the impression of a barrier and blocked the views into the further planes of the village. The remaining space around the building wasn’t utilized or well-maintained because it belonged neither to the building, nor the street.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe commission from the investor was to build 90 apartments in the form of suite houses on the parcel of the former commercial building and the surrounding vacant spaces of the plot. The building of the former shopping center was removed. In its place, there was created a new commercial parterre covered by a meadow. On this roof-meadow, four houses were erected. The houses are of different size and orientations. There are dynamic and exciting spatial relations between them, reinforced by the ascending terrain. The roof meadow is a semi-private open space in-between houses, intended for various activities and events. There is an outdoor grill with seating, a children’s playground and the space in front of the apartments doubles as terraces for individual suites.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe building has two underground garages on different levels. The mutual parterre is accessible through the interior of all of the apartments. Entry into the apart-hotel is through the reception lobby. The winter entrance leads to the ski-room in which each apartment owner has its own ski box. The shared parterre has various service for the accommodated: an adult game room with a 3D golf simulator, a teenage game room, children’s game room, a winery with chilled wine in which the customers have their personal wine boxes, a lobby with a fireplace and a restaurant specializing in grilled meat. The commercial spaces include a supermarket with its facilities, a pharmacy in the style of ‘shop in shop’, connected to the supermarket, a sports goods store, and a ski and bike service shop.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!Lower Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe apartment towers are organized around four elevators and staircases. The entrance to the apartments is through the shared courtyard in front of the elevator. Organizing the apartments into four towers eliminated long apartment hallways that support neighbor relations on the individual floors and in the house. The house is based on underground stilts on two elevation levels – a bench in the hillside. The house’s core construction is of reinforced concrete, changing to a brick system with concrete ceilings in the upper levels of the building. The slanted roofs are concrete monoliths. The bearing perimeter walls are insulated with mineral wool insulation covered by veneer from red cedarwood. The parterre has stone cladding. The meadow above the parterre is an intensive Optigrün green roof with retaining ribs on slanted planes.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceTower roofs are covered by an extensive green roof with sedum matting. The apart-hotel is intended for the recreation of the suite owners, but it also offers their suites for rent in times of vacancy. The rental system includes reception and cleaning services, and complete hotel service for the accommodated guests. A purchase of such a suite, therefore, becomes a guaranteed profit investment for the owner. The apartment interiors were designed in four variations from which the owners could choose. The author-designed interior was a condition the owner had for the actual integration of the building into the rental system. Each style represents their graphic symbol that is present in the interior. Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan and Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceGlamour – golden starThe interior is based on darker tones of oak, gold embroidery and ornaments.Scandinavia – the ‘V’Light tones of whitened spruce in combination with white ornaments on dark blue textiles.

World Federation of Trade Unions statement on Venezuela: ‘Repel the plans of the imperialists, long live internationalist solidarity!’

first_imgThis statement was issued Jan. 25 by the Secretariat of the WFTU.The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), representing 95 million workers of the five continents as well as the world class-oriented labor movement, strongly rejects the attempted coup d’état against the legitimate government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.This interference, orchestrated by the U.S. government, NATO and the EU, and executed by the representatives of the transnationals and monopolies in the country, constitutes a flagrant violation of the most elementary rules of international law and of the Venezuela’s sovereignty. For the WFTU, it is an inalienable right of each people to decide for themselves, without outside interventions, on their present and future.At the same time, the WFTU reaffirms, as it has already done on several occasions, its solidarity with the Venezuelan people, with the working class and our affiliated organizations in the country [against] this imperialist threat. In addition, we call on the Venezuelan people to reject the maneuvers of the imperialists and their lackeys in the region, to condemn the plans of the murderers of the peoples. We will continue to support the Venezuelan working class, for the deepening of the Bolivarian process, until the abolition of man-by-man exploitation, towards a new world, without wars and imperialist barbarism. This is the only way forward to repel the plans of the imperialists.Long live internationalist solidarity!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ethanol Expands Global Reach

first_img U.S. ethanol exports reached near-record levels in 2014, sending 836 million gallons of ethanol worth $2.1 billion to international markets, the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) explained today in its new publication “2014 U.S. Ethanol Exports and Imports: Statistical Summary.” The publication offers a succinct overview of the U.S. ethanol export and import markets in 2014 showing the upward trend in exports and the downward trend in imports — reaching the second-lowest levels — since 2005.  The report finds that U.S. ethanol has made its way to all inhabited continents of the world, reaching more than 50 countries. The top five countries importing U.S. ethanol last year included Canada, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, the Philippines, and India. Meanwhile, exports to the European Union remain down due to a punitive trade tariff it chooses to impose on U.S. produced ethanol. Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association, noted, “Last year U.S ethanol producers produced a whopping 14.3 billion gallons of ethanol and nearly 6 percent was exported globally. We are working diligently to increase demand for this product abroad. It has been rewarding to see countries all over the world embrace the U.S. produced, high-octane fuel, which has also been the lowest-cost liquid transportation fuel found anywhere in the world.”Dinneen continued, “U.S. ethanol is now exported to 51 countries across the globe, including regions that once seemed far-fetched as renewable fuel destinations such as the Middle East and North Africa. But, we will not stop here. We will keep working with others in the industry and the U.S. government to keep exploring new regions that would benefit from U.S. ethanol. Last year, RFA participated in trade missions to Panama, China, Peru, Japan, and South Korea and we will keep at it until all countries understand the value of U.S produced ethanol.”The publication will be distributed at the 2015 National Ethanol Conference on Feb. 18–20 in Grapevine, Texas, and fits the conference theme “Going Global.” Keynote speaker Ron Kirk, the former U.S Trade Representative, will give insight into international trade relations and a panel of industry experts will discuss global ethanol markets in a session titled “Going Global: Building Ethanol Demand Internationally.”The RFA’s “2014 U.S. Ethanol Exports and Imports: Statistical Summary” can be found here.– See more at: https://www.ethanolrfa.org/news/entry/ethanol-expands-global-reach-rfa-releases-new-2014-export-import-report/#sthash.PWSwwXFc.dpuf SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Energy Ethanol Expands Global Reach Ethanol Expands Global Reach SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Feb 6, 2015 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articlePEDv Indiana Progress Report Gary Truittlast_img read more

The Bench of Justice Avinash G. Gharote & Justice Sunil B. Shukre observed, “Such special security would not come as a matter of right and matter of course, rather it would follow the special need of the person and peculiar urgency of the situation.” Importantly, the Court, in its order, observed, “The special need of the person and peculiar urgency of the situation are the factors which cannot be decided by a person who is demanding a special security. These factors are required to be examined and dealt with appropriately in a dispassionate manner by the State by following procedure established by rules.” The matter before the Court The counsel for the petitioner submitted that the petitioner is the National President of BJP Minority Morcha and by virtue of his occupying such a position, the petitioner remains under constant threat to his life and property. It was submitted that while other similarly situated persons have been granted ‘X’ – security, the petitioner has been denied the same. It was also submitted that the security was granted sometime in the year 2017 and it came to be withdrawn on 13th December 2019 On the other hand, the APP submitted that withdrawal of ‘X’ – category security was only on account of the changed circumstances which reduced considerably the threat to the life and property of the petitioner as perceived by the Intelligence Agencies. She pointed out that by providing one Gun-man for security of the petitioner with effect from 05th March 2020, the State has only performed its duty to protect life and property of its citizen in a diligent manner. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court noted that if any person is desirous of security over and above the ordinary ring of protection already thrown around by the State, there must be some special reason or material to show that such additional and special security is indeed justified. Noting that there was in existence, material for Review Committee to consider and review its decision, which it did consider and accordingly reached its subjective satisfaction regarding the withdrawal of ‘X’ category security, the Court said, “If the person desirous of any additional and special security is dissatisfied with decision of the State to not provide him any special or ‘X’ category security, such person can always opt for engaging private Security Guards for his own security at his own expenses.” The Court also noted that an opinion of a person about danger to his own life or property, in a given case, may only be a figment of imagination or due to some peculiar psychology of that person. However, the Court further said that, in reality, the agency entrusted with the duty to protect a citizen, may find that the own threat perception of such a person is illusory or unrealistic or blown out of proportion. Therefore, the Court opined that it is the assessment of the State alone, and not of an individual demanding special security, which is material. The Court also opined that if any decision is taken by the agency, after making such an inquiry and which is based upon the material revealed in the inquiry, such a decision being of administrative nature, would not be liable to be substituted by a decision of the Court taking judicial review of the decision under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, unless the decision taken is not based upon any material or is actuated by any malice or malafides or is the result of consideration of some extraneous material. Lastly, noting that what matters is not the own perception of an individual about any threat to him, but it is the perception of the agency of the State entrusted with the duty to protect citizens is what is important, the Court found the petition to be devoid of merit and thus, the Writ Petition stood dismissed.

Rent records and mortgage petition

first_imgIt’s often advertised that a mortgage payment can be less than an equivalent rent, but many tenants still have difficulty in securing a mortgage as even a perfect rental payment record is no guarantee of a mortgage offer.Jamie Pogson, a frustrated mortgage applicant set up a petition for his record of £70,000 in rent on time to be recognised as evidence that his mortgage payments would be paid – and he has (as of 14th March) received 143,845 signatures.
