Those are the houses on two neighboring sites for brothers. The density of the development is almost urban, though the advantages of the houses with seemingly accidental geometry has allowed for achieving the following effect. The windows of the living-rooms face the woods; the houses of the same design have different layouts; there is a courtyard with a summerhouse for barbecue. The coarse slate façade in combination with the irregular geometry of the building give a lively, modern and at the same time medieval tone to the houses. In the decoration work on the balconies and terraces light wood has been used.Save this picture!© DNKag, Ilya IvanovSave this picture!Plan 01Save this picture!© DNKag, Ilya IvanovTwo volume covered rough sandpaper dark slate, the windows look to the forest, but placed close to each other and form a small courtyard area – get a thoughtful and coherent ensemble, both natural and urban: a modern version of the “garden city”.

Why some disasters generate more donations than others

first_img An article in The Washington Post by Jacqueline L. Salmon looks at why some disasters generate greater philanthropic responses than others.“What is it that triggers that “must-give” button in our heads?” asks Jacqueline L. Salmon in “Some Disasters Compel Us to Give”. “And why do some disasters push that button when others don’t?” she adds.By talking with American and international relief agencies, she concludes that the following conditions contribute to a greater public response.

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. Michael Gilbert’s Nonprofit Online News ably sums these up:“(1) “Natural” disasters beat manmade disasters. (2) Sudden disasters beat slow-moving crises. (3) TV counts. (4) Drama counts. (5) Timing counts. (6) Ease of giving makes a big difference. (7) Personal experience helps. (8) Simple beats complex.”Interestingly, Salmon adds that “disaster giving doesn’t supplant donations to other causes”. She explains that “that’s because individual giving to disasters tends to be small – three-quarters of the people who donated to a Sept. 11 charity gave $100 or less – so people can comfortably keep up their other giving.” Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropycenter_img  20 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 16 November 2005 | Newslast_img read more

Open Letter to the General Affairs Council and Member States regarding the situation in Poland

first_img Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Campaigns Dear Minister On 16 May, the General Affairs Council is set to debate the situation in Poland upon request from the European Commission. We are writing to call on you to act to protect the rule of law and human rights in Poland. Despite repeated warnings by the European Commission, the Council of Europe’s Commission for Democracy through Law (Venice Commission), other international bodies and civil society organisations, the Polish government has continued on its course of undermining the rule of law, tightening its grip on media and backsliding on human rights protection. These actions violate the EU’s founding principles as enshrined in Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU). We therefore urge you to resort to the procedure laid down in Article 7 TEU and ensure Poland respects the principles on which the EU is founded. A year ago, we welcomed the Commission’s decision to activate, for the first time since its creation, the EU Framework to Strengthen the Rule of Law[1] (the Rule of Law Framework) and to engage in a dialogue with the Polish government on the legislative revisions impacting the Constitutional Tribunal and on the annulment of the appointment of several of its members. These revisions and the dispute on the membership of the Tribunal have undermined the Tribunal’s independence and reduced its ability to act as the fundamental safeguard of the rule of law in the country[2]. However, the Polish government has to date disregarded the European Commission’s recommendations, failing to provide a solution to these concerns. Instead, it selectively refused to publish and implement rulings of the Constitutional Tribunal and adopted additional legislation, which further exacerbates the problems identified. The changes impacting the Constitutional Tribunal are part of a wider sequence of actions undermining checks and balances and respect for human rights in Poland since October 2015. These actions have significantly expanded the powers of the executive at the expense of the judiciary, thus undermining the separation of powers, an essential component of the rule of law. Media freedom, freedom of expression and assembly, the right to asylum, the right to privacy and women’s sexual and reproductive rights have also been restricted. Although reforms have been met with a strong response by civil society, the government’s reaction to protests further confirms its resolve to silence critical voices and hold a grip on democratic counter-powers. In this context, we call on the Council to hold Poland to account for its failure to respect its obligations under the Treaties and to prevent the situation from further deteriorating. As the dialogue with the Polish government under the Rule of Law Framework has been inconclusive, it is time for the EU to move on to the next steps and take action under Article 7 TEU. Launching the Article 7 TEU procedure would send a strong signal to Poland and other Member States, as well as the public, that the EU is committed to ensuring compliance with the EU’s founding values and that it is ready to do what is needed to preserve them. It would also signal to civil society in Poland that the EU stands by its side in its fight for a society in which democracy, the rule of law, human rights and the other values protected under Article 2 TEU are upheld. We therefore urge the Council and Member States to conclude their debate on Poland with an official stance that condemns and proposes action to halt Poland’s backsliding from the EU’s founding principles as enshrined in Article 2 TEU. We in particular urge you to: Move ahead to the next steps and activate the procedure laid out in Article 7 TEU to address breaches by the Polish government of Article 2 TEU, in the next General Affairs Council session on 16 May; During the session, raise and condemn the many issues which threaten the rule of law, media freedom and human rights in Poland, as some Member States did recently during the Universal Periodic Review (UPR)’s 27th session at the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva; Adopt Council conclusions urging the Polish authorities to comply with the recommendations issued by the European Commission under the Rule of Law Framework and including further recommendations to the Polish government in order to address concerns; Commit to monitoring the situation in Poland, assessing progress and holding a follow-up discussion in the Council in the next three months; Commit to addressing developments in other Member States, which threaten the principles enshrined in Article 2 TEU. We look forward to your response and we stand ready to provide any further information you may require. Yours sincerely, AEDH (European Association for the Defence of Human Rights) Amnesty International FIDH (International Federation for Human Rights) Human Rights Watch Open Society European Policy Institute Reporters without Borders [1] Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament and the Council, A new EU Framework to strengthen the Rule of Law, COM(2014) 158/final 2. [2]These concerns have recently been confirmed by the Network of the Presidents of the Supreme Judicial Courts of the European Union in a statement which affirms that the Polish government’s interventions in court appointments ‘appear to indicate a threat to the independence of the Supreme Court as well as the Polish judiciary as a whole’ and that Warsaw’s actions ‘will not only have the effect of undermining the rule of law, but also mutual trust in the administration of justice.’Statement of the Network of the Presidents of the Supreme Judicial Courts of the European Union on the Situation” in Poland, available at the following link: http://network-presidents.eu/sites/default/files/StatementPoland.pdf.

R. Sarangi refused to interfere in the Lokayukta’s order for a probe by state vigilance into the collapse of a bridge over the Suktel river in April, which resulted in the death of two labourers. A portion of the bridge in Balangir district, constructed under the Biju Setu Yojana, had collapsed within five years of its being built. The contractor firm was blacklisted and a criminal case lodged against it. The Lokayukta had issued the probe order on August 12 after suo motu registering a complaint case on the basis of newspaper reports. The contractor firm had filed a petition in the high court, seeking quashing of the Lokayukta’s probe order. On September 9, another division bench had stayed the probe in the interim.Having heard the Senior Counsel appearing for the petitioner and Mr. A.K. Parija and the Advocate General for the State, the CJ-led bench found that admittedly due to lapses committed by the contractor the bridge collapsed resulting in the death of two workers. “Even though the order blacklisting the contractor has been challenged before this Court and the matter is pending adjudication, and the contractor himself is facing criminal case lodged against it for such negligence in the work, but that ipso facto cannot disentitle the Lokayukta to cause an enquiry under the provisions of the Odisha Lokayukta Act, 2014 for alleged corruption in the matter of execution of the work itself”, said the division bench.The bench noted that as such, the Lokayukta had issued notice to the petitioner directing the Managing Director to appear and in response to the same, it was stated that the Managing Director expired on 03.08.2020 and subsequently the present petitioner, being the Managing Director, instructed the lawyer, who also appeared before the Lokayukta on 12.08.2020. “Since Lokayukta wanted to have an enquiry about the construction of the bridge and reasons for construction of substandard work and crack created within a period of five years of construction resulting in its collapse and ultimately causing death of two labourers and, therefore, the Lokayukta came to a prima facie view that loss of two lives and huge public money could have been averted, had the public servants in charge of the construction of the bridge discharged their duties honestly and diligently. Then, taking cognizance of such fact the Lokayukta issued direction to the Director, Vigilance, Odisha to carry out the investigation and submit status report within a period of three months”, recorded the bench.Therefore, it was of the view that if the direction has been given to find out the lapses caused on the part of the government servant and such direction has been issued under Section 20(6) of the Odisha Lokayukta Act, 2014, there is no illegality or irregularity in issuing such direction by the Lokayukta. “More particularly, in the event the interim order dated 09.09.2020 passed by this Court is allowed to continue, it will obstruct the investigation itself. If the investigation is in embryonic stage and, as such, the authorities are now proceeding with the investigation, at this stage, this writ petition should not have been entertained and interim protection should not have been granted”, said the bench.Incidentally, on the same day, another Single Judge of the same High Court held that “where a complaint is pending before the Lokayukta and in the event the Lokayukta is taking up the selfsame issue, institution of F.I.R. on the selfsame issue against the petitioner will definitely create double-jeopardy”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

And, we sold a lot of hamburgers, hot dogs, snacks and drinks. Everybody seemed to have a good time. It was a good day.”Dothan auctioneers Johnny Lee and Justin Godwin kept the auction moving along at a good clip, Palmer said. Some came in boots; others came in shiny shoes.

They worked it so the bidders could see both auctions sites and could move from one to the other to bid.”Big items bring bigger bucks and the Pike County Cattlemen’s Equipment Auction on Saturday had some big items.“We had hay balers, horse and cattle trailers, including a goose neck trailer,” Palmer said. “We had corn pickers, tractors and Bush hogs.  We had three new motorcycles up for bid and that was a first for us.

Gardening project paying dividends for PLAS freshmen

first_img “We are very excited to have a greenhouse that allowed us to grow plants from seeds and care for the plants during cold weather,” Thrash said. “The students learned how to prepare soil in our outdoor garden. They learned about fertilizers and about watering. Before long, they will watch their plants become productive. It has been exciting to see them excited about this gardening project.”When the garden becomes productive, Joseph Riley said hopes are to have enough produce for self-consumption, for the salad bar at the school cafeteria and, maybe, some to sell.The students sold ferns and poinsettias to raise money for their garden projects. They built birdhouses and butterfly houses to add color and interest to their vegetable garden and to the flower garden at the school’s upper entrance.There, the butterfly houses are the focal point of a butterfly garden that will attract butterflies from spring until fall. Thrash said the garden project was and is an opportunity to teach across the curriculum.“It involved reading. The students read about plants and their care, about soils, fertilizers. They learned to identify plants. They used math to construct the raised beds and build the birdhouses and butterfly houses. Art was included as they painted and decorated the houses.“The students learned about finances when they bought the ferns and poinsettias and marketing when they sold them. They learned the importance of working together in the planting and caring for the garden. The gardening project has been a good learning project.”Scott Taylor said he has enjoyed the opportunity for hands-on learning and is excited that the plants they grew from seeds are growing and will be productive.Joseph said his classmates are proud that Thrash took the classroom outside and gave them the opportunity to learn from doing.“She has made learning about health fun,” he said. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell At Pike Liberal Arts School, Jane Thrash is teaching across the curriculum. Her ninth-grade health classes may not have a clue about that but they are having a good time learning about healthy nutrition and healthy environments while digging in the dirt.Thrash’s two health classes are on different paths that lead to the same goal – healthy living.The students have planted an in-ground garden, a raised garden and a container garden. And, how do their gardens grow? “Very well,” the students said with a smile, as they showed off their red potatoes, their tomato blooms and the green, green lettuce leaves.“I wanted the students to have the opportunity to learn how vegetables are grown,” Thrash said. “I wanted them to learn hands-on.” Book Nook to reopen Trojans pull away late in 10-2 win over Alabama A&M The Trojans knocked off in-state foe Alabama A&M 10-2 on Tuesday night at Riddle-Pace Field.
