The Cressy Road house is an addition to an existing heritage bluestone farmhouse designed for a mature couple upgrading the existing facilities. Since the owners acquired the property 15 years ago, the farm has undergone a process of adaptive change to the client’s lifestyles concluding with this contemporary piece of architecture.Save this picture!© Trevor MeinThe original dwelling, typical of Victorian era Homesteads, was erected around 1890 featuring local bluestone walls and timber filigree-decorated verandas with a dominant Zincalume roof. The design of the new house is driven by the site conditions and a desire to achieve a sensitive yet abstracted dialogue between old and new. The simple form of the extension extrudes the plan form of the old house and a striking visual contrast, yet reinforcing materiality is established – most visible from the main road.Save this picture!© Trevor MeinFor the owners, practicality, comfort and low maintenance were the key principles to the design brief along with a desire to minimize the number of materials used to achieve high quality zero maintenance finishes, whilst fitting within a tight budget. A single external material – Zincalume ribbed cladding, echoes the roof of the old house and is used to clad the entire form of walls, hipped roof and skylight.

Howard Walsh Fine Arts Center.The production has required complete collaboration between the school’s music department, theater department, dance department and the visual arts department, said Clint Riley, the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts Executive Director.“This story is heavy because it’s about a man who has made mistakes in his life and he now has the opportunity to go back and try to correct them,” Riley said. “Our students have the skill to sing, act and dance in this heavy material but with these really beautiful and complex dance sequences.”Riley said the production requires a very high skill level to successfully perform.“Whether it’s singing, or acting, or dancing—we are very fortunate to have students that are all very good at what they do,” he said.Students worked on the scenery, made the costumes, and even choreographed their own dances, said Riley.“This musical is not just about the talent on stage, but the talent behind the scenes,” Riley said.There were multiple reasons why the school chose to perform “Carousel” this year, said Riley.“We look at our student population—we look at the number of students that are looking to fill the female and male roles and their capabilities,” he said.Riley said the school chose the musical for educational reasons as well.“This musical is one of the best musicals of the 20th century,” Riley said. “We wanted to pull from a classical piece and this is a very hard piece to perform so our students are learning and excelling at it.”The musical follows a 19th century romance between a charming carousel barker, Billy Bigelow, and a pretty innocent millworker, Julie Jordan. The attractive young couple quickly marries but they soon find themselves unemployed and in need of money which strains their relationship. Billy then discovers Julie is pregnant and resorts to extreme measures for money which lead to tragedy.Riley said the cast is a mix of students from different grade and skill levels.“Some of our cast members have been with us since third grade, while others are only in their first years of performing in musicals,” he said. “I would say we have a pretty diverse group.”Billy Bigelow will be played by junior Caleb Wilson while Julie Jordan, Bigelow’s wife, will be played by junior Jayden Goldberg.“While Caleb has a background in theater, Jayden has a background in opera training,” Riley said. “She has traveled all over from D.C. to Italy—this is what she wants to do career-wise.”Louise Bigelow, the daughter of Bigelow and Jordan, will be performed by Bailey Poe.“Bailey has a background in musical theater and actually spent her summer in New York City with a musical theater training program,” said Riley.Riley said “Carousel” is the excellent opportunity for all the leading actors to display their talents.“This is a strong classical piece with serious vocal training within the musical theater genre so it is the perfect fit for our leading actors,” Riley said.The website for tickets is show dates and times are:Friday, October 28 at 7 p.m.Saturday, October 29 at 7 p.m.Sunday, October 30 at 3 p.m.Thursday, November 3 at 7 p.m.Friday, November 4 at 7 p.m.Saturday, November 5 at 7 p.m.Tickets prices:Advance: $15 adults | $6 studentsAt the Door: $18 adults | $8 students Morgan Heinrich + posts Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature TCU Tailgates in The 109last_img read more

India: Two Kashmiri newspapers deprived of state ads in bid to apply pressure

first_img RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 “Targeting two newspapers in this completely arbitrary manner clearly constitutes an act of crude intimidation,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The authorities have no right to harass the publications they dislike with the aim of imposing their own version of the facts. Amid a surge in tension in the Kashmir valley, it absolutely vital that newspapers should be able to cover the situation in a completely independent manner, especially as press freedom is an essential condition for defusing tension.” IndiaAsia – Pacific Media independenceProtecting sources Armed conflictsEconomic pressure A Kashmiri citizen reads a newspaper in Srinagar on 28 February, a day after Indian and Pakistani warplanes clashed. The free flow of independent information must be maintained if tension is to be defused in Kashmir (Photo: Tauseef Mustafa / AFP). The Jammu and Kashmir government took the decision two days after 46 Indian paramilitaries were killed in Pulwama, in western Kashmir, on 14 February by a suicide bomber who was a member of an Islamist militant group based across the border in Pakistan. News India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media Kashmir Reader owner and editor Haji Hayat Mohammad Bhat told RSF that the loss of advertising revenue would have “immense financial implications” for the two newspapers. “We would at the very least expect the government to tell us why they stopped the advertisements.” News “Immense financial implications” News The plight of Kashmir’s journalists is one of the many reasons why India is ranked no better than 138th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Organisation Accredited Kashmiri reporters were arbitrarily prevented from covering an official event in Srinagar, the state capital, on 26 January to mark Republic Day of India, one of India’s three national holidays. Four journalists were injured when police deliberately fired shotgun pellets at reporters a week before that. Shujaat Bukhari, the editor of the leading regional newspaper Rising Kashmir, was gunned down in Srinagar in June 2018. April 27, 2021 Find out more The decision was clearly “intended to ensure that the free media are curbed,” Greater Kashmir publisher Rashid Makhdoomi told RSF. “All we have been told is that the stoppage orders have come from the top. We need to be told who at the top has stopped the advertisements.” There are many examples of how press freedom has been one of the leading collateral victims of the growing tension in the Kashmir Valley for the past two years. The journalist Aasif Sultan has been detained since 24 August because of an article he wrote for the Kashmir Narrator monthly, while the hearings in his case, including one on 15 February, keep on being postponed. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns a decision by the authorities in Indian-held Kashmir to endanger the financial viability of the region’s two leading English-language newspapers by depriving them of all state advertising. The government must restore state ads and treat all Kashmiri publications equally, RSF said.

This latest decision by the Jammu and Kashmir government alluded to an October 2017 directive from the Union ministry of home affairs.

There are certain distinctly discerning features in the former, as compared to the latter”, observed the Single Bench. Expounding these differences, the Judge said that first, prison service, if under rigorous imprisonment, is not only compulsory for the prisoner, but is mandatorily to be provided by the authorities as well. Therefore, it is not the convenience or requirement of the authorities which prompts the generation of such service, in which case the service would necessarily be associated with a reciprocal duty cast on the employer to remunerate the employee according to the general statute governing the field, that is, the Minimum Wages Act. The employment is not an option exercised by the employer as per its needs but a mandate under the statute. Since the employer as well as the employee are both forced to provide and undertake such work statutorily, the entitlement of the employee and corresponding duty cast upon the employer cannot be on the same footing as an ordinary employment. Even prisoners undergoing simple, as opposed to rigorous, imprisonment have the option to choose work; if opted for, the jail authority/employer is bound to provide such work and does not have a choice to refuse such request, even when law does not mandate such work as a necessary corollary of the imprisonment. Thus, in cases of simple imprisonment, the rights are lopsided, the employee having the option to work or not but the employer being under statutory compulsion to provide such work, once the option crystallizes into an actual job upon a prisoner under simple imprisonment choosing it. This element of compulsion on the employer, associated with prison service, somewhat negates the bargaining power of the employer, as opposed to other employments, consequentially diluting the obligation of employers to pay the minimum rates of wages prescribed for employees under the Minimum Wages Act, which obligation is intended to set off the negative effect of such bargaining power in the hands of employers. Secondly, the judgment reads, that since there is a special statute, that is, the West Bengal Correctional Services Act, 1992, governing the incidents of prison service in the state of West Bengal, which provides for the remuneration of prisoners and working hours etc., the same overrides the general service law as far as prison service is concerned. As, in the present case, committees were duly formed from time to time by the State Government for determination of rates of wages, service conditions, etc. in prison as per the law, which have already framed such rules in accordance with law, the quanta of which rates have not been challenged on the ground of being arbitrary or unreasonably low, there is no scope for application of the general statute operating in the field, that is, the MW Act. “Thirdly, the prisoners, during incarceration, are provided with various facilities, such as food, shelter, medical facilities, security, etc. as well by the prison authorities. Thus, it is sufficiently justiciable to provide a reasonable rate of wages, as fixed by statutory committees, to a prisoner, which rate is arrived at upon deliberations involving concerned sections of society and social bodies and on examination of the total scenario, as well as taking into account reasonable deductions for such facilities from wages. The rates need not necessarily be equal to minimum wages as provided by the general law on the subject, because the extra facilities enjoyed by prisoners do not form a mandatory constituent of the general minimum wage structure/work conditions in employments outside prisons”, ruled the Single Judge. Further, the Court reflected that irrespective of the technical qualifications of prisoners otherwise, which might not have fetched them a similar job outside jails, the prison authorities are bound to broadly classify the competence of the prisoners under skilled, unskilled and/or other categories for the purpose of assigning work to them, giving weight to the prisoners’ aptitude and skill. Therefore, the prisoners need not have the edge to compete and qualify for jobs, as services outside prisons, but are roughly assessed on the basis of their skills and enjoy the mandate of statutes to be assigned some job or the other as per their competence and inclination, without having to undergo the process of strict competition required for services outside prisons. The working hours of prisoners may also be less than employees other than prisoners. “Although the term “wages” is not defined specifically in the 1992 Act, Sections 55 and 56 thereof provide sufficient elaboration as regards the rates of wages and the working hours of prisoners, hence excluding the need to import, as an external aid of interpretation, the concept of wages as envisaged under the MW Act”, noted the Court. It was, However, of the view that the logic, that prison service is penal in nature, does not justify the prisoners being paid less than their entitlement, since there cannot be double punishment, both in the form of imprisonment itself – whether rigorous or simple – and getting less wages than reasonable compensation for their work and rehabilitation, overlooking the additional angle of compensation to the victim being provided from a common fund by deducting a portion from the prisoners’ wages. “The distilled proposition of all the cited judgments is that adequate and reasonable payment should be made to prisoners for their service for their rehabilitation and service itself, deducting the expenses for their food, clothing and other amenities provided to them. Deductions for the purpose of creating a victim compensation fund have to be limited, since the prisoner commits a crime, for most offences, against the State, the State having failed to protect the victim from the crime in the first place. As such, the State cannot avoid the responsibility of contributing a major portion of the victim compensation funds too”, the bench opined. But the question raised, as to the applicability of the rates fixed under the MW Act being applicable to prison service, is answered in the negative. Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
