The plot is located in a sub-urban area of Paphos town . These areas consist of plots usually 22X24M and it is the result of a fixed , anachronistic legislation for years . This has had as a result a sub-urban development of houses allowing hardly any green areas due to another part of the legislation that allows buildings to reach 3M from the neighboring boundaries. With the modern family being more demanding these houses are covering the full percentage of building factors , allowing less and less free space. Bearing this in mind and also having the neighboring properties occupied , our aim was to design a house that allows the occupants max. privacy , sun protection and if possible more free space. Save this picture!© Agisilaou & SpyrouThe latter was not achieved due to the addition of a pool. So we have proposed vertical vegetation screens which they create shading and privacy. The house , despite it’s contemporary lines has a lot of “hidden” Cypriot traditional elements such as tall ceilings , to facilitate air circulation , lightweight floor construction , to create flexibility , massive ground floor structure , to create anti-seismic stability and other. Save this picture!© Agisilaou & SpyrouThe house is closed towards the road , with hardly any openings .Most of the openings are oriented south east , towards the exterior areas, the patio and the pool , facing the vegetal screen. Likewise, we have achieved cool interior spaces through various types of screening filtration of the sunlight and, allowing the air conditioning to function only when is very humid we managed to cool down the volumes by having heavy exterior insulation. The winter sun is welcomed during the day hours helping the house to minimize oil consumption. Thus ,the insulation contributes to a certain economy to the family and confortable living.Project gallerySee allShow lessAtlantic City Boardwalk Holocaust Memorial Design CompetitionArticlesAutodesk Launches Online Game on Green BuildingArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/99951/the-antoniou-residence-koutsoftides-architects Clipboard Architects: Koutsoftides Architects Area Area of this architecture project The Antoniou Residence / Koutsoftides ArchitectsSave this projectSaveThe Antoniou Residence / Koutsoftides Architectslast_img read more

Yellow ribbons & a new book to free the Cuban 5

first_imgPhoto: International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5Cubans festooned their island with yellow ribbons on Sept. 12, marking the 15th anniversary of the arrest of five Cuban men in Miami. Even the Washington Post, which has ignored or been hostile to the campaign to free the Cuban 5, published an Associated Press article that day headlined “Havana dresses up with yellow ribbons in campaign to push for Cuban 5 agents’ release.”In Washington, D.C., the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 took yellow ribbons to the White House sidewalk in a spirited and noisy lunchtime “vigil” on the Sept. 12 anniversary. White House security refused to accept a hand-delivered letter to the president.The letter read in part: “We ask you once again to make use of your prerogatives as President of the United States and immediately free Gerardo, Ramón, Antonio and Fernando. The entire world is waiting for a gesture from you to end this colossal ­injustice. The entire world is ‘watching.’”The Cuban 5 were imprisoned in 1998 for the “crime” of defending their homeland. Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando González remain in various federal prisons, with Hernández dealt an outrageous sentence of double life plus 15 years.The yellow ribbon campaign was initiated by René González, who completed his full sentence and is home in Cuba with his family. Famous Cuban artists, including Silvio Rodriguez, videoed a stirring rendition of “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree.”The vigil at the White House was part of the East Coast tour by author Stephen Kimber, who is introducing his new book,”What Lies Across the Water: The Real Story of the Cuban Five.” (Winnipeg, MB: Fernwood Publishing, 2013)Three events in Washington, D.C., concluded with an emotion-filled cultural evening of solidarity at the Venezuelan Embassy’s Bolivarian Hall on Sept. 13. Activist actor Danny Glover made a surprise appearance, speaking not only for the freedom of the Cuban 5, but for an end to the U.S. blockade of Cuba.This event included a tribute to writer and filmmaker, Saul Landau, who died of cancer on Sept. 9. His support for the Cuban Revolution, which began shortly after the 1959 Revolution, was the subject of many of his movies, books, articles and lectures. Landau had visited Hernández in prison many times, accompanying Glover.Three events in New York City were capped off with a meeting on Sept. 16 initiated by union leaders from the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, demonstrating how the movement to free the Cuban 5 is growing.Kimber’s book is an important tool to inspire the “jury of millions” within the United States that has the ultimate power to open the prison door for all of the Cuban 5. The book tour will end in Boston on Sept. 17 where Noam Chomsky will join Kimber at a program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.For more information on the struggle to free the Cuban 5, see theCuban5.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Michigan librarians win struggle vs. union busting

first_imgWestland, Mich. — Workers World newspaper recently interviewed one of the public employee librarians who won a fight for union representation in Westland, Mich., a suburb of beleaguered Detroit.Workers World: Could you describe the Westland librarian struggle a bit?Kristy Cooper: On March 3, five librarians were told their positions were terminated at the Westland Public Library, just two days after they had turned in union-intention papers. The library’s administration then hired three part-time “library associates,” with no benefits, to replace them. We later found out these people had the exact credentials as the terminated librarians — a master’s in library science. [The fired librarians] were not allowed to apply for these demoted positions. They were all initially told that they were laid off. But they were already budgeted-for because of a 10-year dedicated library millage passed by 71 percent in 2012, and the library has a $2.5 million fund balance. The library’s board president claimed that the timing of their terminations was a complete coincidence.The fact that it was an election year helped us a lot [in the campaign]. I created surveys for everyone running for city council and mayor for them to talk about what was happening at the library. This was the first time someone was running against the mayor in years. He was the person who appointed the library board in the first place.[Then] suddenly there was an article in the local paper about the library board hiring an independent counsel from the city, and I was about to release the survey results. The mayor got the remaining board members to resign. Then the director resigned right after that. The next day, all of the librarians were then offered their jobs back. They are currently negotiating the terms of their return with the library’s new union, the SEIU [Service Employees], voted in by 27 to 5 in May.WW: How do you think the Westland librarian struggle ties into the broader working-class struggle?KC: I think it shows how often and easily the work people do is undervalued and treated as disposable, even when everyone who actually knows what they are doing would agree they are doing a good job.I think it also says a lot about how little [the library administration] cared about the library’s patrons. When the librarians were terminated, several programs aimed at older or more vulnerable members of the population had to be immediately canceled, including the homebound delivery program, the adult literacy program, the job-seekers lab, all teen programs, all computer classes and the writing groups.It also showed how little the Democratic Party actually cares about labor issues. Westland is run by Democrats and only two people from the Westland Democrat Club actually got involved to help us.WW: Has the process caused you or others to change your political stance?KC: I was already a socialist when this struggle began, but I would say the experience further radicalized me. I realized that working within the system was terribly inefficient, and I have now taken on a harder-line, anti-authoritarian position. Myself and several of the librarians involved have also been talking about how to decrease hierarchy in public library administrations and increase accountability.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

It held that a Civil Judge would not be the competent authority to entertain cases under Sections 9,14, 34 & 36 of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996. A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Mohammad Rafiq and Justice Vijay Kumar Shukla in its order dated February 26 held that the language employed in the definition clause of “Court” in Section 2(1)(c) of the Arbitration Act clearly indicates that the Legislature intended to confer power in respect of disputes involving arbitration on the highest judicial Court of the District. This, the Court opined, was done to minimize the supervisory role of Courts in the arbitral process and, therefore, purposely excluded any Civil Court of a grade inferior to such Principal Civil Court, or any Court of Small Causes. Background The Court was presiding over a writ petition filed by Advocate Yashwardhan Raghuwanshi, assailing the validity of an order dated 20th October, 2020 passed by the District and Sessions Judge, Bhopal, in exercise of powers conferred upon him by Section 15(1) of the Madhya Pradesh Civil Courts Act, 1958 read with Sections 194, 381(1) & 400 of CrPC, distributing civil and criminal business amongst various Additional District Judges and Subordinate Judges working under his supervision. The challenge in particular was made to Entry 45 of the aforesaid order vide which cases filed under the Arbitration Act involving commercial disputes under provisions of the Commercial Courts Act, 2015 of specified value between Rs. 3 lakh to Rs. 1 crore were assigned to Civil Judge Class-I. The controversy pertains to an apparent conflict between the Commercial Courts Act where Courts of Civil Judge are designated as Commercial Courts and the Arbitration Act where Courts of a grade inferior to Principal Civil Court have been barred from trying arbitration matters. Arguments It was the Petitioner’s case that the Court of Civil Judge is not a competent authority to try arbitration disputes. He submitted: Arbitration Act is a consolidated statute for law relating to any form of arbitration dispute, intended to streamline the commercial disputes arising out of arbitration in speedy manner, for which purpose the Special Courts have been set up.Any commercial dispute involving arbitration shall be tried only by Principal Civil Court of the superior most jurisdiction in the District i.e. the Court of District Judge or at the maximum, it could be assigned to the Court of Additional District Judge as per Section 7 read with Section 15 of the Civil Courts Act but it cannot be assigned to a Court inferior thereto.The term “Court” for the purpose of Arbitration Act has been defined under Section 2(1 )(c) of the Arbitration Act which provides that “Court” means, in cases of an arbitration other than international commercial arbitration, the Principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction in a district, and includes the High Court in exercise of its ordinary original civil jurisdiction, having jurisdiction to decide the questions forming the subject-matter of the arbitration if the same had been the subject-matter of a suit, but does not include any Civil Court of a grade inferior to such Principal Civil Court, or any Court of Small Causes.A conjoint reading of the Arbitration Act and Commercial Courts Act, makes it clear that only such “commercial matters” which do not involve the arbitration matters can be assigned to a notified Commercial Court of the status of a Senior Civil Judge but all matters involving both Commercial Courts Act as well as Arbitration Act can only be tried by the Principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction.Section 11 of the Commercial Courts Act provides that a Commercial Court or a Commercial Division, shall not entertain or decide any suit, application or proceedings relating to any commercial dispute in respect of which the jurisdiction of Civil Court is either expressly or impliedly barred under any other law for the time being in force. The jurisdiction of Commercial Courts of the status of Senior Civil Judge to entertain any suit, application or proceeding pertaining to Arbitration Act involving commercial disputes is expressly barred.As per Section 13 of the Commercial Courts Act, an appeal against the order of Commercial Court (XX Civil Judge Class-I) shall lie to the Commercial Appellate Court (XIX Additional District Judge), and then it has further provided appeal to the High Court. On the other hand, the Arbitration Act provides for only one appeal to the High Court under Section 37 of the Arbitration Act against the order of the Principal Civil Court.When the “commercial arbitration matters” arc clubbed together, they create an ambiguity and conflict. It is however scuttled law that when there is conflict between two central enactments, the provision of special law should prevail over the general law. Thus, on applying the doctrine of harmonious construction on the provisions of both the statutes, it is clear that they are best harmonized by giving effect to the special statute i.e. the Arbitration Act vis-a-vis the more general statute i.e. the Commercial Courts Act. Findings Concurring with the submissions made by the Petitioner, the Division Bench held, “It would be evident from the language employed by the Legislature in the definition clause of “Court” in Section 2(1)(c) of the Arbitration Act that it intended to confer power in respect of the disputes involving arbitration on the highest judicial Court of a District so as to minimize the supervisory role of the Courts in the arbitral process and, therefore, purposely excluded any Civil Court of grade inferior to such Principal Civil Court, or any Court of Small Causes.” It added, “Segregation of an arbitration matters on the basis of a pecuniary limit is not what the law provides for. All the arbitration matters, irrespective of the value of claim, arc required to be adjudicated by Principal Civil Court of original jurisdiction.” It thus held that the impugned order, to the extent of classifying the commercial disputes having subject matter of arbitration on the basis of valuation and conferring powers therefor on the Court of XX Civil Judge Class-I, Bhopal, would be violative of relevant provisions of law. The Bench relied on State of Maharashtra v. Atlanta Limited, (2014) 11 SCC 61, whereby the Supreme Court, in the context of two Courts having concurrent jurisdiction, held that appeal against the award in cases where the District Court as the Principal Civil Court exercises original jurisdiction under the Arbitration Act, would lie to the High Court. Reference was also made to a judgment of the Gujarat High Court in Fun N. Fud v. GLK Associates, 2019 SCC Online Guj 4236. In this case, the High Court was examining the validity of the order passed by the Additional District Judge declining to hear an application under Section 9 of the Arbitration Act on the ground that it has no jurisdiction to hear and entertain such application and, and directing the applicant therein to present his application before the Court of Principal Senior Civil Judge. The High Court had held that in view of Section 11 of the Commercial Courts Act, which bars a Commercial Court from deciding any suit, application or proceedings relating to any commercial dispute in respect of which the jurisdiction of the Civil Court is either expressly or impliedly barred under any other law for the time being in force, the Commercial Court which is a Civil Court of a grade inferior to such Principal Civil Court, or any Court of small causes, would be barred from exercising jurisdiction under Section 9 or any provision of the Arbitration Act.
