The building is located on high ground with lust greenery and a bluff that overlooks the beautiful Miyagawa-River flowing north-south through Ise City. The Intention was to create a rich relationship between the house and these surroundings.

A vertical void links the rooftop terrace and the light court on the first floor, drawing nature into the interior. Save this picture!© Takashi Yamaguchi & AssociatesOn the first floor, a horizontal void connected directly to the vertical one opens up a view of Miyagawa River. The interaction of these external voids – the way they intersect and connect with interior spaces – generates richer, more complex scenery throughout the building as a whole. Save this picture!© Takashi Yamaguchi & AssociatesRooms are arranged around the light court, which extends into the entrance such that Miyagawa River bursts into view when the door is opened. The eastern volume’s first floor contains the living, dining and kitchen areas central to everyday life. The large opening dug from its northern end offers dramatic views of Ise and Miyagawa. The aluminum flooring’s dull sheen gently amplifies the illumination from the light court and reflects a variety of natural transitions onto the white interior. Save this picture!© Takashi Yamaguchi & AssociatesThe second floor contains family space and a bedroom in an enclosed area with a sloped ceiling. Milky-white natural light entering through slits in the roof wraps the interior in a soft, subdued atmosphere. Save this picture!© Takashi Yamaguchi & AssociatesThe western volume’s first floor contains the garage and a study. The long, relatively low opening in the study enables eyes weary from reading to rest with a view of the abundant greenery outside. Save this picture!© Takashi Yamaguchi & AssociatesThe rooftop terrace and light court are open to Miyagawa area’s natural scenery and afford excellent vantage points for the summer fireworks festival. The building’s white exterior walls both reflect the fresh green of spring and catch the shadows cast by bare branches under the setting sun of late autumn.

Tesco partners with food donations charities in weekend food collection Howard Lake | 3 July 2014 | News Why Summer?This weekend has been chosen because Tesco research found that “people are usually less generous in the Summer months than at other times of the year”. Only 7% of people surveyed said that they were at their most charitable during the Summer. Yet many low-income families find the Summer particularly hard as children no longer benefit from free school meals.In July and August 2013 Trussell Trust foodbanks alone gave emergency food to 133,539 people, including 47,639 children. The charity expects demand to be higher this Summer.Multi-charity partnershipThousands of volunteers from the Trussell Trust and the FareShare network will be involved over the weekend campaign, as will hundreds of volunteers from the British Red Cross. FareShare will distribute some of the donated food to some of the other 1,290 charities that it supports.Lindsay Boswell, CEO of FareShare said:“As the research shows, people are more generous at Christmas when it’s easier to remember those in need. However, we are urging people to give generously once more and not forget that the summer is also a difficult time for many as they struggle to provide for their families during the long break”. Tesco is hosting a nationwide food collection from 3 to 5 July with foodbank charity the Trussell Trust and food redistribution charity FareShare. The food retailer is hoping that customers and colleagues will collect five million meals for people in need.This is Tesco’s fourth Neighbourhood Food Collection since December 2012. They have collected 10 million meals for people in need around the UK. The last collection in December 2013 achieved 4.3 million donated meals.As in previous collections, Tesco will be topping up total donations by a further 30%.

WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsOne authority to govern Limerick-city and countyBy admin – September 9, 2010 650 Advertisement Email Twitter City is dead…airport is dying, warns BrosnanA NEW unified Limerick local authority to administer the city and service a population of almost 190,000 people, has been recommended to the government by the Limerick Local Government Committee, whose chairman, Denis Brosnan, did not mince his words when, briefing the media on details of the report, he said: “Limerick needs a regeneration of its city centre more than the four housing estates involved.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Limerick needs a new authority with a new mandate to look after the social issues and that of regeneration, which doesn’t know if its mandate will be renewed in two years.“The city is dead, the airport is dying and so is the region – we are trying to turn it into a region that is going again”.The report estimates that an extension of the city boundary into the city’s suburbs in County Clare and County Limerick would create an administrative area serving 187,000 people, which would make Limerick the third biggest city in the country.Upwards of €20million per annum would be achieved in cost savings through the merging of staffing and administrative structures of both councils and the elimination of duplication and these savings would be used to support the city centre’s business environment by harmonising rates in the city centre and suburbs.The report calls for a new management structure for the Limerick Authority and the acquisition of skills and expertise required to meet Limerick’s challenges.It also stipulates that the new authority will have the resources of the third largest city in the country and service a population of 187,000, and the committee recommends that the mayor of the new authority should be elected for a five year term.Throughout the report the stark reality of the city’s deterioration is highlighted.“The relative deprivation of the city has steadily increased over the past 15 years – it is not surprising that the urban core of Limerick performs poorly in other respects as the increases in levels of deprivation occurred during the latter years of the most sustained period of economic growth that the State has experienced”.Following a continuous decline in the population within the city boundary, it now stands at approximately 52,000. All of the areas of severe deprivation are within the boundary, but, as the report points out, the population of the metropolitan area is approximately 100,000 and contains many affluent suburbs (outside the city boundary).“The exclusion of many of Limerick’s suburbs distorts the city’s statistical profile and this has a damaging impact on Limerick’s reputation and lessens the likelihood of potential investment,” Mr Brosnan asserts.The issue of the suburbs of Shannon Banks and Westbury being included in the boundary extension, is not a stumbling block, he says.“There is no question of a plebiscite being held in Shannon Banks on this – the housing is built in Limerick city. Nobody can tell me that Shannon Banks is in Clare.“We couldn’t put 97,000 people into the city from Clare but yes, we can do so with the 3,000 in Corbally”.The report recommends that pending the 2014 elections, following the establishment of the new Limerick Authority, a mayor should be elected from the 46 members to serve until the 2014 local elections.Supporting the report’s recommendations, Limerick Chamber president, Kieran MacSweeney, said their one priority is that any changes to the local government structure will deliver a city of sufficient scale to allow it reach its full potential to become a driver of growth throughout the region.“We believe the report delivers this and while we were concerned that combining both authorities would take years, we have been assured that this could happen very quickly if it gets the support of the people and the key stakeholders”.

A Single Bench of Justice Dhiraj Singh Thakur noted that the Petitioner’s application under Section 156(3) CrPC was disposed of by the concerned Magistrate with prima facie finding that the facts disclose commission of a cognizable offence by the accused. However, the Magistrate fell short of issuing directions for registration of FIR. “On a perusal of the order impugned, it thus appears that there is a contradiction in the order passed by the Court below. While on one hand, the learned Magistrate appears to be satisfied that cognizable offences seemed to have been committed on the basis of averments made in the complaint, on the other hand, the learned Magistrate has forwarded the complaint to be looked into by the Crime Branch with a further direction to register a case only if some cognizable offences are found to have been committed,” the Bench noted. Background The Petitioner had approached the High Court through Advocate Deepak Sharma complaining that he had been subjected to a scam by online fraudsters and was, therefore, deprived of approximately Rs. 20,700/- on the pretext of granting him an online loan. He submitted that the accused persons, including Facebook and Bajaj Finance, in collusion with each other made an offer of loan to him on his Facebook page, by placing the said offer for loan under “Sponsored category” and induced and lured him to accept the said loan offer by displaying it recurrently on his Facebook feed. The Petitioner further submitted that the accused conspired to cheat him by inducing him to transfer a total amount of Rs 20,700/- in to the bank account of the Respondent, by fraudulently winning his confidence, by making an offer for loan displaying name and official logo of Bajaj and placing the offer for loan under Sponsored category on Facebook. It was his case that the Police was reluctant to entertain his complaint and thus, a prayer was made before the Magistrate to exercise his powers under Section 156(3) of the CrPC for issuing directions for registration of a case in that regard.The petitioner made Facebook India, FB India Vice President Ajit Mohan, Bajaj Finance Ltd and its Managing Direector Rajiv Jain as accused 1 to 4 in the complaint. In his order, the Magistrate said, “Ex facie the cognizable offences are found to have been committed. Therefore at this stage, it is considered just and appropriate to allow the application and direct SSP Crime Branch, Jammu to look into the allegations and if some cognizable offence is found to have been committed by the accused persons, then only, an FIR shall be registered and the occurrence shall be investigated forthwith.” Cryptic order Aggrieved by aforesaid cryptic order, the Petitioner approached the High Court. He argued that if the Magistrate was satisfied that cognizable offences on the face of it had been committed, then there was no occasion for the Magistrate to leave it open to the Police authorities to look into the allegations to determine as to whether the cognizable offences had been committed or not. The plea stated, “Special Railway Magistrate, Sub Judge, Jammu, despite knowing the fact that the information given by the petitioner in the application under section 156(3) Cr.P.C. discloses cognizable offences, instead of acting as per the mandate of law by issuing specific directions to the police to file FIR against the accused persons and to conduct investigation in the matter, in a manner unknown to law, vide its order dated 02-09-2020 though concurring that ex facie the cognizable offences are found to have been committed, but in a very casual manner directed Respondent no. 4 to look into the allegations and directed that if some cognizable offence is found to have been committed by the accused persons, then only, an FIR shall be registered and the occurrence shall be investigated forthwith.” Findings The Single Judge was of the opinion that the second portion of the impugned order, inasmuch as it leaves it open to the Crime Branch to decide the fate of the complaint, is contrary to the satisfaction already recorded and is therefore, to that extent, bad in law. The Court ordered, “the order impugned to the extent it leaves the issue of registration of FIR to the wisdom of the official respondents is bad in law and is, accordingly, set aside. The Incharge Cyber Cell would register an FIR and the same shall be investigated by the concerned Branch dealing with the Cyber offences.” Case Title: Vivek Sagar v. UT of J&K & Ors.

Heidi Gutman/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw said he “made no romantic overtures” toward a former colleague who told at least two other media outlets he acted inappropriately toward her in the 1990s. Linda Vester, 52, told the Washington Post and Variety that Brokaw approached her at the NBC News bureau in Denver in 1993 and inside her hotel room in New York in 1994, touched her without her permission and sent her suggestive computer messages. She provided journals to Variety that she say backed up her account.Brokaw denied those encounters took place.“I met with Linda Vester on two occasions, both at her request, 23 years ago because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC,” Brokaw said in a statement released through NBC News. “The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda’s allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her at that time or any other.”The Post reported that another woman, unnamed, also accused Brokaw of unwanted touching, which he denies.Brokaw is 78 and has been married since 1962.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
