The former central flower market is situated in the historic Südliche Friedrichstadt in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district. The actual market hall is used by the Academy of the Jewish Museum, which stands across the road. The surrounding areas are characterised by post-war housing and in particular buildings that were constructed for the 1984/87 International Building Exhibition, as well as by a variety of cultural facilities and creative enterprises. Several galleries, a higher education institution for design, changing exhibitions, temporary projects and public art collections stand alongside the publishing house Springer Verlag and the TAZ daily newspaper.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsSave this picture!SiteSave this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe site’s attractive and central location near Friedrichstrasse suggests that the present mix of uses, which includes inexpensive housing in the neighbourhood, is at risk in the foreseeable future. The intention was to redress this trend, notwithstanding the current need for development, by launching a concept-linked award procedure for the central flower market site. An innovative multi-stage qualification process was developed in collaboration with the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg local authority, the Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment, local stakeholders and independent experts, whose aim was to support the ongoing project and assure the quality of architecture and urban development.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe development objective for the plot south of the hall was to establish a diverse and mixed pattern of use for a wide spectrum of residents. Owner-occupied artists’ studios and apartments, cooperative housing and studios, space provision for social associations, and commerce were part of the programme for the establishment of a new building group and hence lay the foundation for the IBeB. The main idea for the project, which was initiated by the architects ifau and Heide & von Beckerath in cooperation with the Selbstbaugenossenschaft Berlin eG, is to offer a mix of live and work units that meets the needs of artists and creative professionals, among others. Moreover, the comparatively low land price allowed the cross-subsidisation of cooperative residential and studio spaces within the project, which can be let at a sustainable rent.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe building volume exploits the maximum permitted site area stipulated in the binding local development plan. The architectural concept is structured by three connected horizontal access cores as well as by the relation between the building envelope and the interior atriums. These parameters describe and inform the typology of the units and their integration into the neighbourhood at the former flower market. Ground level access is from exterior areas around the building. The entrances to the multi-storey studios, a garden with adjacent communal utility rooms, and a basement face onto paths around the building. Three entrances provide access to two interior staircases. Another access element situated on level 1 is structured and lit by the green atriums. Small south-facing apartments front onto this rue intérieure while the north-facing rooms are linked internally with the units above, which can also be accessed directly via single-run staircases. Access on level 4 is from the exterior. Here too, access is provided on two levels, albeit vertically mirrored.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsSave this picture!© Andrew AlbertsAdditional studios shared space, and a roof terrace, including optional reserve areas on a deck above, are also proposed. All apartments and studios have different sizes, room heights, and standards of fittings. Some of them have been adapted or linked in the design development stage to adjust the spatial concept to the occupiers’ needs. The underlying principle is that units in the centre of the building are arranged in modules over a depth of 23 metres while units at the ends of the building are designed around the cores and establish differentiated interconnections with their surroundings. The apartments and studios on levels 0, 1, and 4 and at the ends of the building have barrier-free accessibility. The structure is a combined cross-wall and column construction. All ground floor spaces are transparent and can be extended into the adjacent public areas. The building envelope combines ceramic elements, windows, and fixed glazing in its facade. Generous balconies are situated in the south and west.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsThe owners and representatives of the cooperative have jointly developed the project’s social and spatial focus. In view of this, the public and semi-public interfaces with the neighbourhood are given specific attention. The building was designed in such a way that it could be constructed cost-effectively using prefabricated components and largely realised as an Efficiency House 70 (EnEV 2014) with the extensive use of sustainable building materials. The access concepts and floor plans are flexible to accommodate possible conversion and retrofitting as well as adaptation to changing demands. The floor plans for the 66 apartments were designed and detailed in cooperation with the future residents. The 17 studios and three commercial units are conceived as blanks so that the standard of fittings will meet the different needs of the individual occupants. The decision-making process determining the type and position of communal facilities and the development of a binding standard for fittings took place in close collaboration with the building group.Save this picture!© Andrew AlbertsProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse for Hamacho / BORD / Gaku Inoue, Kumiko Natsumeda, Ken AkatsukaSelected ProjectsYas Ger, Movable Mongolian Yurt / Ger AtelierSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Berlin, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

After that, the military must take him before a judge if they think he has committed a crime. Security for journalists in this part of the country is already bad enough without the authorities making it worse”.“We have other concerns. Why did Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) tap this journalist’s phone? Did they obtain a court’s permission to do this? How many other journalists is the ISI currently spying on?”Reporters Without Borders added: “The freedom with which Pakistan’s intelligence agencies act poses a grave threat to freedom of the press and information. An investigation should be carried out with the aim of controlling the methods used by the different agencies.”The disappearance of Mansoor, who works for the Dargai-based dailies Ayeen and Awaz-e-Swat, was made public yesterday by colleagues who were with him when he was “abducted” by military intelligence officials on 14 October.His colleagues said they contacted military press officers, who told them Mansoor was being questioned about “suspicious phone calls” and would be released soon if he was innocent. It is not known if they were referring to calls made or received by Mansoor.“We have been informed that Mansoor is in the custody of intelligence personnel after he was picked up for interrogation,” one of his colleagues told Reporters Without Borders. “He is a professional journalist and a very serious one. If he has done anything wrong, they should act according to law. But taking him away in such fashion worries all journalists.”A journalist for the past 15 years, Mansoor is general secretary of the Dargai Press club.Pakistan’s Tribal Areas are no-go areas for journalists from other regions, while foreign journalists have had no access to them at all since the United States launched its war on terror in 2001.Pakistan is ranked 159th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The Petitioner, Aayom Welfare Society had sought “universilization” of the Public Distribution System so as to increase its reach to the poor and downtrodden, during the lockdown. It had submitted that the same would enable the availability of essential food items for all in the present times of global pandemic and would alleviate another 20% of the population in the country to meet its food for survival requirements. It had also pointed out that there is surplus of food grains and thus universalisation of PDS would enable the poorest of poor, including migrant communities, homeless and elderly, nomadic tribes and other vulnerable communities, access to food. After hearing the Petitioners via video conferencing, the court observed that the same is a “policy issue” and thus left it open for consideration of the Central Government. “This being a policy issue, it is left open to the Government of India and also the concerned States/ Union Territories to consider such relief,” a bench comprising of Justices NV Ramana, SK Kaul and BR Gavai said. Accordingly, the Petitioner was directed to supply a copy of the writ petition to the Union of India through Solicitor General Tushar Mehta. Case Details: Case Title: Aayom Welfare Society v.

iStock/Thinkstock(MILWAUKEE) — The Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office said it will not press charges against two police officers who used their stun guns as many as 18 times in the death of a naked man in the shower last May.District Attorney John Chisholm made the announcement on Friday, saying there was “no basis to conclusively link” Adam Trammell’s death to “actions taken by police officers.”The 22-year-old Trammell, of West Milwaukee, Wisconsin, died in police custody after authorities were called to report a “suspicious male” in an apartment complex at 5 a.m., according to Milwaukee ABC affiliate WISN-TV. The report by Chisholm notes the caller believed the man, later identified as Trammell, was having a “psychotic break.”Trammell, who was naked at the time, was allegedly speaking incoherently and flooding an apartment with a shower when police arrived, WISN-TV reported. West Milwaukee and West Allis police said in a press release last year that a stun gun was used on the suspect because he was “uncooperative and combative with officers.”He stopped breathing and died at a local hospital, police said.The Milwaukee County medical examiner ruled Trammell’s cause of death as excited delirium and the manner “undetermined.”West Milwaukee Police Chief Dennis Nasci told WISN-TV that the two officers involved were placed on administrative duty for two months before returning to active duty.Graphic body-cam footage of the officers using a stun gun on Trammell multiple times was released and reviewed by the district attorney. The body-cam footage shows a calm and confused Trammell confronted by police officers while he is in the shower.An officer twice says, “Brandon, I’m going to need you to come on out,” referring to Trammell by the incorrect name, before saying, “You’re going to get tased.” Trammell doesn’t respond before being shocked and falling to the shower floor, screaming. The district attorney’s report states the officers repeatedly used their stun guns on Trammell as he struggled to prevent removal from the shower. The report indicates the officers used a Taser 15 times.Trammell’s family claims he suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.“The family first saw the video at the DA’s office. So, yes, they’ve seen the video, and they weep every time they see it,” the Trammell family’s attorney, Mark Thomsen, told WISN-TV. “We had a young man in a bath tub naked, OK? Why they engaged in tasing for 15 to 18 times is beyond my imagination.“For no good reason — and essentially tortured to death. That should not happen to the mentally ill in our community.”Thomsen said the family will be pursuing a civil case. West Milwaukee police said they would not comment due to that pending civil litigation.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Cambridgeshire data collected for the BSBI’s Atlas 2020 project include 347,496 records at monad (1 km) or finer resolution. We used these data to cluster taxa by spherical k-means to produce 21 clusters of taxa with similar patterns of distribution. Some of the clusters correspond to well-defined habitats such as chalk grassland, ancient woodland, traditional fenland, and saline riversides and roadsides. Other clusters were less expected, corresponding to arable clayland, washland (the Ouse and Nene washes), waste ground and garden escapes. There was a cluster of ubiquitous species and another of common arable weeds. The distributions of the clusters are displayed as coincidence maps. Some species are intermediate between two clusters. These can be recognised by their relatively poor goodness of fit to any one cluster. The clusters differ markedly in ecological attributes and whether they include rare or threatened species. We interpret these differences using Ellenberg values and the vascular plant Red List for England.

The Blues had a very mixed week, with a convincing 25-7 win over Japan’s Kanto Gakuin University on Satuday followed by a weak performance by an inexperienced team against Bohemians of University of Limerick, Eire in a 26-5 defeat on Wednesday.The team have set their stall out for this season to play adventurous rugby, moving the ball wide at pace early on. Against Kanto Gakuin, the sheer speed of passing along the line was enough to overcome the opposition’s defence and only poor ball handling prevented the Blues from gaining an even larger victory. Against the harder-hitting Limerick side, however, the Blues were taught a lesson in hard, tight rugby, the creativity of the backline of little use with a shortage of quality ball and ineffective recycling. The game against Kanto Gakuin, who beat Cambridge 21-14 in Tokyo during the summer, was never a thriller. Initially, the teams were reasonably matched, and Kanto Gakuin actually enjoyed the best of the early opportunities. However, Oxford went ahead with a fast flowing move which is becoming the team’s signature play, Huw Jones getting over after some great team work created an overlap. The game continued in this style and every time the Blues had the ball, they tried to outwit the tourists with their speed and agility, so it came as no surprise that Oxford went in 15-0 up at half time with another rapid move. Ross Lavery broke through the Kanto Gakuin line and Adam Harris fnished off the move. Jon Fennell continued his good day with the boot, adding the conversion to his earlier penalty.The second half showed Oxford’s superior fitness and the forwards started to dominate in the scrum. Winger Jonan Boto broke through for a try and Fennell kicked another five points. However Kanto Gakuin did put up some resistance and a period of strong play from them, with their forwards turning the tables, lead to number 8 Tosa putting the ball under the posts for the final points of the game.A very different team played against semi-professional Limerick, with only four Blues named in the starting line up due to the game against Leicester Tigers three days later. It definitely showed in a performance which started as a closely fought game but turned into a second half nightmare. The same tactics were on display but the visitors were able to repulse the fast attacks the pacey Oxford backline tried to put together. Limerick’s Fergal Lawlor scored three penalties in the first half, but prop Sean Brophy reduced the deficit after Ali James went close. Bohemians did have a try disallowed due to an unnecessary forward pass which let Oxford off the hook and left the match very much alive at half time with the score at 9-5.The second half was anything but close. The Blues lost any momentum they had going into the break and appeared lacklustre. The lineouts were overcomplicated and Oxford put themselves in danger on many occasions by losing their own throws. Limerick were smashing in the scrum and James O’Neil went over after the home team were driven back over their line. With the Blues forced to commit in huge numbers to rucks, Limerick were able to create large overlaps of which they took full advantage. There were a few good breaks but these petered out as the Blues’ recycling let them down. Coach Steve Hill summed up the performance. “We didn’t perform as well as we should have done.”Saturday’s match showed once again that the Blues have real potential this year to play some devestating and effective rugby. However, Wednesday’s game showed that it could all come to nothing if the Blues do not get their basics right. An admittedly inexperienced Blues side struggled with scrummaging, line-outs and basic handling. These aspects of their game will have to improve. ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005
Q You are suspicious that an employee is up to no good and are thinking about installing hidden CCTV cameras to catch them red-handed. Is there anything you must consider first?A Occasionally, you may get a hunch that an employee is up to mischief for example, you might suspect they are stealing from the petty cash or taking drugs in the toilets. Of course, you can intervene, but you would have a much stronger hand if you had hard evidence to back up your beliefs. CCTV footage showing the culprit in the act would be ideal. But is it as simple as rigging up hidden cameras out of hours?The use of CCTV cameras is covered by the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and its accompanying CCTV Code of Practice (the Code). Unlike the DPA, the Code is voluntary, but the Information Commissioner (IC) will want to know if you have followed it, should an employee complain about your use of CCTV.The Code says hidden CCTV cameras must not be used purely to obtain evidence for run-of-the-mill internal disciplinary matters. They are only justifiable where you suspect that a specific crime for example theft is being committed and you intend to involve the police.Even if these conditions are met, you will still need to carry out an “impact assessment”. This will help you decide if resorting to CCTV is a “proportionate response” to the perceived problem, or a potential breach of privacy. If it’s not clear-cut, then a less intrusive alternative should be found.Details on how to carry out an impact assessment can be found in Part 4 of the Code. For example, it says you must consider if hidden CCTV cameras will:1. be used only for this particular investigation that is, they cannot be used to generally monitor staff2. have a detrimental effect on staff who are not under suspicion3. actually identify the culprits in other words, could this be done through other means?4. add any weight to the investigation is the recording vital to establish wrongdoing?The number and placement of any hidden cameras should be proportionate to the type of investigation. Plus, you must limit access to the footage to as few employees as possible and must be able to justify who has it for example a manager and why.Keep records of your impact assessment in case your decision to use hidden CCTV cameras is ever challenged by staff.Finally, and understandably, the most contentious use of hidden CCTV cameras is in toilet areas. According to the Code, this can only be justified if you have reasonable grounds to believe a crime is being committed there for example drug dealing and police involvement is a certainty.Ensure hidden cameras in toilet areas do not cover cubicles or urinals, even partially. This would be an unlawful invasion of privacy and risks a complaint to the IC.
