The house is located in Canicosa de la Sierra, Burgos. The design is inspired by the local natural monument known as “Pino-Roble”, which consist of a pine tree born inside a centenary oak, which is considered a symbol of the village.Save this picture!© Javier BravoSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!© Javier BravoThis Project´s aim is to keep the identity of the preexisting house on, reconstructing the perimetral stone walls above which the new house’s volumes emerge. This new building does not fill up the whole plot; it leaves two courtyards as transition and access spaces which both make it possible to illuminate the indoor rooms and supply private use exterior spaces.Save this picture!© Javier BravoThe program is divided in three levels, distributed in two parts, displaced due to the position of the courtyards. The stairs are located in the core of the house, looking towards a doble height open space where the dining room is located. The singular geometric design of the stairs contributes to identify this space as the main one of the house. In order to organize the diferent rooms hierarchically and bring light inside the house, a continuous space is created using a sequence of interconnected thresholds, enclosed spaces and rooms with different heights.Save this picture!© Javier BravoSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Javier BravoExternally, the house recovers its lost identity, emphasizing the primigenial composition through the elimination of additions. Following this purpose, the original openings in the facades are mantained (enlarging a modern opening to get into the garage), and the local sandstone construction system is highlighted. Furthermore, the aim is to, visually, fragment the new emerging volumes to integrate them in the village composition. For the new facades, a two different tone SATE system is used, which contributes to get an elevated thermal isolation to reduce the heating demand in a place with extreme temperatures.Save this picture!© Javier BravoSave this picture!© Javier BravoProject gallerySee allShow lessHISTORY OF ARCHITECTURE – Architectural Writing CompetitionIdeasOpen Call : Visitors Center Design CompetitionStudent Competitions Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Area:  2820 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeValentín Arrieta BerdascoOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionSustainabilityOn FacebookSpainPublished on January 15, 2021Cite: “Pino-Roble House / Valentín Arrieta Berdasco” [Casa Pino-Roble / Valentín Arrieta Berdasco] 15 Jan 2021.

Grandes beneficios farmacéuticos para el dolor

first_imgDsuvia. Ese es el nombre comercial del último opioide de alta potencia que pronto aparecerá en el mercado. Su nombre científico es sufentanilo, y es un análogo del infame y fatal opioide fentanilo. Es aproximadamente 5 a 10 veces más fuerte que el fentanilo y 1000 veces más fuerte que la morfina. Se administra por vía sublingual, toma 15 minutos para comenzar a trabajar y proporciona alivio del dolor durante aproximadamente 3 a 4 horas. Fue aprobado el 12 de octubre por la Administración de Drogas y Alimentos en una votación de 10 a 3.Dsuvia, al igual que otros productos de fentanilo en el mercado, tenía la intención de tratar un dolor insoportable. Está dirigido a personas que no responden a los medicamentos normales para el dolor. Otros productos de fentanilo, como Subsys, estaban destinados a tratar el dolor insoportable del cáncer, pero se desviaron de su propósito y se entregaron a personas que en realidad no los necesitaban.Aunque este producto está diseñado para ser un medicamento de un solo uso, todavía existe el riesgo de desviación y abuso. El grupo defensor Public Citizen dijo al Washington Post que “si se aprueba, Dsuvia sufrirá abusos y comenzará a matar gente tan pronto como llegue al mercado”. (, 2 de noviembre)Esta acción irresponsable por parte de la compañía farmacéutica AcelRx y la FDA será inevitablemente la causa de muchas muertes, ya que el sufentanilo podría convertirse fácilmente en un producto de corte en la heroína y otras drogas o el abuso a sabiendas. Los funcionarios de salud pública ya tienen preocupaciones de que este producto será desviado.Ha habido decenas de miles de muertes por opioides en el último año, y muchas más en 2018, con el fentanilo involucrado en muchos de ellos. La adición de Dsuvia a la lista de drogas de abuso solo derramará combustible en ese fuego. El comisionado de la FDA, Scott Gottlieb, reconoció que los críticos de Dsuvia estaban preocupados por el potencial de abuso de la droga.Pero afirmó que la FDA tenía que juzgar la droga por sus propios méritos y cómo encaja en el cuadro completo de la adicción a las drogas, pero aún así lo aprobó. La FDA incluso invocó a los militares, diciendo que es un dispositivo de entrega que es una prioridad para los militares.La FDA había firmado un Memorando de Entendimiento con el Departamento de Defensa para acelerar los productos médicos que podrían ser útiles para el DOD. Este memorándum es probablemente la razón por la cual el medicamento fue aprobado.Los comunistas y otros progresistas deben presionar a AcelRx para que no comercialice este medicamento.

He added that there was no such mention in Constitution in 10th schedule in 1985 and even in representation of people act when the political parties were being registered for the first time.”We want to know how the Objection to having symbol on EVM, how does it prejudice electoral process?” the Bench asked.Singh responded by saying that the candidate’s value is not seen, his intrinsic value is not seen. It goes by the symbol. He added that they had also addressed a letter regarding this to the Election Commission on 4th April 2020, but they haven’t responded till date.”Serve a copy on the Attorney General or Solicitor General. We will consider it. We will not issue notice at this stage.” the Bench observed.The present plea has sought removal of political symbol from EVMs to provide equal opportunity to contesting candidates and to weedout the 7 menaces of democracy being corruption, criminalization, casteism, communalism, regionalism, linguism and nepotism.”Our democracy is suffering from seven menaces- Corruption, Criminalization, Casteism, Communalism, Lingusism, Regionalism and Nepotism and the best solution to weed these menaces is to replace political party symbols on Ballot & EVM with Name, Age, Education Qualification and Photograph of the Candidates. Ballot and EVM without political party symbol have many benefits” the plea has stated.According to the plea, filed by Advocate Ashwini Kumar Dubey, the injury caused to the public is extremely large because ‘free and fair election’ is the basic dictum of our democracy and ‘right to vote’ is an important statutory right of citizens but practically both have become a dead letter due to use of political party symbol on ballot paper and EVM, which leads to confusion among voters and result in casting of wrong votes.The plea has further argued that the use of party symbol on Ballot-EVM, breaches the rights guaranteed under Articles 14-15 read with Articles 325-326 as it prevents free exercise of right to vote due to use of money power by candidates. It also affects ordinary citizen’s rights to get elected and puts him to great disadvantage due to reduced win-ability factor as independent.The plea has stated that use of party symbol on Ballot-EVM is arbitrary and irrational because it invites and enables criminal backgrounds to buy ticket from National and State recognized political parties and contest election.The plea has added that as Political parties promote and propagate their election symbol throughout the year, even their criminal candidate has more probability to win than an honest patriot hard working independent candidateAccording to the petitioner, the Constitution was made after detailed discussion and framers didn’t feel need of political party/symbol which is why the Constitution has no mention of political parties and symbol. However, the current election system is revolving totally around them only.The petitioner has therefore contended that use of political party symbol on Ballot-EVM brazenly offends equity, equality and equal opportunity, guaranteed under Articles 14, 15, 21 & mentioned in Preamble of the Constitution. .The plea has therefore prayed for the following directions from the Court:Declare that use of party symbol on EVM is illegal-unconstitutional and violative of Articles 14, 15, 21 of the Constitution of IndiaDeclare that the words ‘and symbol’ occurring in Rule 49B(4)(a) of the Conduct of Election Rules 1961, are contrary to Articles 14, 15, and 21 of the Constitution, and hence void and inoperativeDirect the Election Commission of India to use the ‘Name, Age, Educational Qualification and Photograph’ of the candidates on EVM, in order to provide equal opportunity to contesting candidates and to weedout corruption criminalization casteism communalism regionalism linguism and nepotism, the 07 menaces of democracyIn the alternative, being custodian of the Constitution and protector of fundamental rights, direct the Election Commission of India to use its plenary power conferred under Article 324, to remove the symbols from Ballot and EVM and use Name, Age, Educational Qualification and Photograph of the contesting candidatesClick Hear To Download/Read OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Fill Up The Vacancies Of Judges, Give Due Consideration To The Members From Muslim Community: Plea Filed Before Punjab & Haryana High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesFill Up The Vacancies Of Judges, Give Due Consideration To The Members From Muslim Community: Plea Filed Before Punjab & Haryana High Court Sparsh Upadhyay26 April 2021 9:13 PMShare This – xA plea in the Nature of Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been moved before the Punjab & Haryana High Court regarding filling up of remaining vacancy of Judges in the High Court with a further prayer that some vacancy of High Court Judges be filled from suitable candidates of Muslim Minority Community. The Plea moved by Advocate Ranjan Lakhanpal has arrayed the Union of India, the State of Punjab, the State of Haryana, UT Chandigarh, and the Registrar General, Punjab and Haryana High Court as respondent parties The plea avers that facing a shortfall of 38 judges, the Punjab and Haryana High Court had overall pendency of over 6.4 Lakh cases and that the Court had 47 judges against the sanctioned strength of 85. The plea also states, “There is a backlog of over six lakh cases and the number of cases is only increasing day by day. In such a situation, it is imperative that vacancies of Hon’ble Judge be filled up immediately and some vacancies are required to be created and filled up immediately.” Importantly, the plea highlights that there is no representation from the Muslim Minority Community in the High Court. The plea states, “Even though Punjab and Haryana High Court is in existence since the year 1956, not a single member has been elevated as a Judge in this Hon’ble Court from the Muslim Minority Community. It is necessary that a member of the Muslim Minority Community should be appointed as Judge of this Hon’ble Court so that Muslim Minority Community does not feel discriminated.” The petitioner has also stated that a representation was made to the Prime Minister of India for seeking appointment of Judge of this Hon’ble Court from Muslim Minority Community. The plea clarifies that it doesn’t pray that only member of the Punjab and Haryana High Court should be elevated as Judge of this Hon’ble Court, but member of Muslim Minority Community from any States of our Country can be elevated as Judge of this Hon’ble Court from Muslim Minority Community The plea has further submitted before the Court that a serious under-representation of religious minorities in the Supreme Court/ High Courts reflect that the collegium has either not been sensitive towards the matter or has simply bypassed it in its cloudy deliberations to select and appoint Judges. Importantly, the plea avers, “When the judiciary does not reflect a broadly representative cross section of India Society, the public perception would be that there is an implicit bias against religious minorities. While reservation in the Judiciary may generate controversy, it nonetheless raises the question: What would it take for such a change to be made or other attempts at dealing with the lack of diversity to fully emerge.” Lastly, the plea prays for the following directions to the respondents: To fill up the remaining vacancy of Judges in this Hon’ble Court as there is a shortage of 38 Judges in the Hon’ble High Court of Punjab and Haryana with the pendency of over 6 Lacs cases. Some vacancy of Judges be filled from Muslim Minority Community so that some representation is given to the CommunityTagsPunjab and Haryana High Court #Punjab & Haryana High Court Judges from Muslim Community Judicial Member Vacancy Judicial vacancies Backlog of Cases Judicial Backlogs Next Storylast_img read more

Regularisation Of Court Mangers: Supreme Court Asks Kerala HC To Hear The Plea Expeditiously, Orders Status Quo On Fresh Appointment

first_imgTop StoriesRegularisation Of Court Mangers: Supreme Court Asks Kerala HC To Hear The Plea Expeditiously, Orders Status Quo On Fresh Appointment Srishti Ojha11 May 2021 9:05 AMShare This – xWhile refusing to enter into merits of the plea by two Court Managers seeking regularisation in High Court, the Supreme Court has on Tuesday requested the Kerala High Court to take up the matter on the decided date May 21st 2021. A division Bench of Justice UU Lalit and Justice BR Gavai has directed that status quo as of today, be maintained till the matter is heard by the High Court on 21st.”At this stage, without entering into merits of matter, we request High Court to take up the appeal itself on concerned date on 21st may and till that date, status quo as today shall be maintained.Advertisement While dictating its order, the Court noted that the instant special leave petition has been directed against non grant of any interim relief in pending writ appeal by division bench of HC. The order passed by the High Court discloses that appeal was admitted on 7th April 2021 and it was directed to be posted on 21 May 2021.The Bench made note of submissions on behalf of petitioners that the present petitioners have been working as Court managers in Kerala HC for more than 5 yrs and they otherwise have requisite qualificationsAdvertisement “It has been submitted that some High Courts have already taken decision to regularise service of existing court managers rather than inviting fresh talent. We need not go into these questions as the appeal has been directed to be is posted on 21st May.” the Bench noted.The Bench was hearing plea challenging the non-grant of interim relief by the High Court of Kerala to the petitioner for regularisation of their service as Court Managers in the Kerala High Court. The plea also sought ex-parte stay on the conduct of fresh election process for the post of Court Managers in Kerala High Court.Advertisement Advertisement During the hearing, the Bench asked the petitioners as to what happened in recent recruitment drive, and if they had participated in it.The Bench was informed by Sr Adv Chitambaresh that they did not participate in the drive as they were not qualified as per new the new notification.Sr Adv Chitambaresh submitted that Two other High Courts have already regularised.”What’s been suggested in some of the Committee reports is that these persons should atleast be MBA degree holders as well because kind of management required at level of High court may be completely different fromAdvertisement Advertisement Advertisement Management required at level of District Court. ” the Bench said. “Meritorious candidates were chosen as court managers of the High Court”Chitambaresh said.Bench noted that two submissions are being advanced by the petitioner, that the same judge in judgement separately passed the same day has accepted prayer of regularisation of the manager at District Courts then why make a distinction as far High Court court managers are concerned.The spirit of this court’s orders were correctly understood by two other High Courts in the country.”Look at it this way, should High Courts not have benefit of someone who’s more qualified, more meritorious. Why should the High Court be derived of that” the Bench said”They are experienced” Sr Adv Chitambaresh said.” They are experienced but every order passed in favour of your client was for a temporary duration.” Justice Lalit said. The Bench inquired about the qualifications of the petitioners, to see if they were qualified for the post. The Bench further asked that if the petitioners had those qualifications why didn’t they chose to participate.”There’s a line of decisions particularly in the Kerala High Court.” Sr Adv Chitambaresh responded. “So if you participate you can’t challenge, etc. So therefore you want to sit on those technicality” Bench remarked.”It was pending writ petition and appeal.” Senior Counsel submitted. ” But the HC chose to say you should participate” the Bench said. The Counsel submitted that he has a limited requirement that till the writ appeal is disposed of, the petitioner may not be displaced.In response to petitioner Counsel’s request to not displace them till the appeal is pending, the Bench stated that “There is fresh talent coming up, we don’t want to discourage that fresh talent. In case people are actually vying for a job, and then to br told that there are 2 other people whose petition is yet to be decided. We don’t want the situation where that talent is frustrated” Adv Parameshwar interjected and informed that the petitioners didn’t participate because they didn’t have PSU experience. The educational qualifications and work experience were met but the only problem was PSU experience.”PSU Experience is compulsory?” Justice Gavai asked.”They have made it compulsory. Petitioner 2 fulfill PSU experience because of Air India. Petitioner 1 was working in Vodafone al through and has MBA degree and so does Petitioner 1. Petitioner 2 has PG diploma in management. All IIMs don’t give Degree in Management, they give diploma.” Adv Parmeshwar said. “Then you should have challenged the initial entry requirements, saying that they don’t depict the correct picture. Because you’re right, all these IIMs Bangalore, Calcutta etc give you a diploma, not a degree and they are considered to be top most qualifications when it comes to management discipline. ” the Bench said.The Bench added that “you could have as well said that the requirement that i must have a degree in management is not the correct idea, but you never challenged that””Let my writ appeal be disposed of in two weeks. The Court opens next week in Kerala, let the appeal be disposed of.” Senior Counsel Chitambaresh requested.The Bench then stated ” What we will do Mr Chitambaresh is since matter is posted on 21/05/2021, we will say that let status quo be maintained till that date, and whether a positive interim relief be granted in favour of your clients or not, and whether you fulfill the requirements, depending on that whatever is to be done, let the High Court take a call on 21st”The plea has alleged that the writ petition was wrongly dismissed and hence a writ appeal was filed. However while admitting the appeal, the High Court failed to appreciate that since selection process for regular appointments were to begin from 17th April 2021, non-grant of interim relief would effectively render the appeal otiose.Facts: The plea has stated that the petitioners were appointed as court managers on temporary basis for a term co-terminus with that of the 13th Finance Commission pursuant to a rigorous selection process, and due to their meritorious discharge of duties their tenure was extended from time to time. They were in service without any break till 2021.The plea cited the top Court’s order in the case of All India Judges Association vs Union of India, whereby it was directed that the services of any person already working as a court manager in any district should be regularised by thr State government. According to the plea, this ought to be read as applicable to the High Courts as well.Further, it stated that the Single Judge who dismissed the petitioner’s writ petition on the same day directed that the services of the Court Managers in the District Court be regularised, through judgement dated 29th Jan 2021 in case titled Abdunasser vs State of Kerala.The petitioners have cited the example of High courts of Rajasthan and Gauhati who have followed spirit of the Supreme Court’s order dated 2nd August 2018 and regularised services of the Court Managers in their respective Courts.Grounds: The petitioners took the following grounds to seek the relief:• Kerala High Court has issued advertisement for selection to post of Court Managers and also issue admit cards and released schedule for written examination to be conducted on 17/04/2021 even during pendency of writ appeal.• The petitioners, currently occupying post of Court Managers and their right to be regularised will be irreparably harmed if selection process continues.• Balance of convenience is in favour of the plaintiff as no difficulty or disadvantage would result to the High Court.TagsSupreme Court Fresh Recruitment Kerala High Court Justice UU Lalit Justice BR Gavai Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

SMART ART: Banks students bridge class and workshop

first_img What could have been a sloppy mess was not. The sixth-graders realized that when colors run into each other they become gray and muddy and would not make interesting backdrops for their pop-ups.“Lay it flat,” “Don’t let it drip!” “Oh, don’t step on it!” were words of caution and alarm as the students moved their background designs from the table canvas onto the walkway to dry. Back in the classroom, Sartorius and Brannon took the students through the steps of paper engineering, from how to cut and fold the paper to how much or how little glue to use on their pop-ups. And, as is with any book, there has to be a story. Then, they let the students’ imaginations take over. As their creative juices began to flow, the sixth-graders being to think outside the box, Jackson said. “This is a great opportunity for the students to use their imaginations and be creative with their artwork and their stories,” Jackson said.Each pop-up had a story.
