The bishop of Sodor and Man, a member of the island’s parliament, voted against the bill.The island’s bicameral parliament, the Tynwald, is the oldest in the world. The lower house, the House of Keys, has 25 members; while the upper house, the Legislative Council, has 11 members, including whoever is serving as the island’s bishop.The Rt. Rev. Robert Paterson described the Bill as a “well-intentioned mistake”, IOM Today reports. “The problem we are faced with as legislators is the human body and the nature of sexuality. Wouldn’t it be convenient if with Royal Assent we could abolish all difference and distinction in sexuality? But we can’t and to pretend otherwise cannot be honest. Talking about equality of status simply confuses things. It’s spin.”Since 2011, same-sex couples on the Isle of Man were able to enter civil partnerships – a legal status giving them similar inheritance, tax, and pension rights as married couples. The new bill extends civil partnerships to heterosexual couples. Paterson described this move as creating “two duplicate sets of relationships” and warned that “it will be train crash waiting to happen.”The Isle of Man’s Legislative Council approved the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Amendment) Bill by six votes to three. It will come into effect after it receives Royal Assent.

NT house is located in the early housing project (established around 1960) in Chiang Mai city, which is in the vicinity of Doi Suthep (the most important mountain of Chiang Mai). Not only because of the location wise, but also because the personality of two owners who love peace, nature and privacy can be regarded as significant factors in designing this house. The design was primarily chosen to respond to both project contexts – to create a view that can appreciate nature – and the complete privacy of the house.Save this picture!© Bline SpaceSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Bline SpaceThe house itself has an L-shaped building with a large green space inward. This two-story houses are built from reinforced concrete structures, where the ground floor consists of the plugged-in parking space connecting to the entrance hall and the integrated living-dining room. On the one end it continues to the kitchen, while another end goes to the studying room and a suite guest bedroom. Another important feature of the house is the staircase hall. It functions also as a double space hall with the gap beneath the volume of the shifted wall on the second floor. It allows the air can be circulated through.Save this picture!© Bline SpaceThis gap – created by the shifted wall – offers such an alternated stack effect for this massive house, meanwhile the gap becomes the channel to let the lights from above to shine through at night. It creates the different feeling when the lights are pouring out onto the external wall. The view at the end of the second floor stairs leads to the Buddha shelf sunken in a circular shape wall – to create a sense of calm and serene. And then we enter the second floor bedroom, and outside with a balcony for planting trees and morning exercise.Save this picture!© Bline SpaceSave this picture!Section 02Because we aim to maximize the use of green space, so by locating green space at the back seems to be the best option. It also allows us to build the house close to the set-back boundary, where the walls of the house are integrated and function as a fence all at once. For us, it was a great opportunity to create a shape of the solid block building, where the wall surface can become the backdrop of the playful shadow of the tree and of the building itself. Opaque shapes have been replaced with the light at night, it seems like the expression of the house have changed in every moment.Save this picture!© Bline SpaceProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse of One Piece / 85 DesignSelected ProjectsSen Retreat Takahara / KURU + Coil Kazuteru Matumura ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952105/nt-house-2929designlab Clipboard Photographs NT House / 2929DesignLab Save this picture!© Bline Space+ 19Curated by Hana Abdel Share 2020 “COPY” Houses ArchDaily Architects: 2929DesignLab Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952105/nt-house-2929designlab Clipboard NT House / 2929DesignLabSave this projectSaveNT House / 2929DesignLab Area:  400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Thailand CopyHouses•Chiang Mai, Thailand “COPY” Projects CopyAbout this office2929DesignLabOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChiang MaiOn FacebookThailandPublished on November 26, 2020Cite: “NT House / 2929DesignLab” 25 Nov 2020.

NCGA Warns, Beware the Free Corn Coalition

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News NCGA Warns, Beware the Free Corn Coalition Barbre claims, in an article he wrote earlier this month, “Were it not for the ethanol marketplace, corn farmers would not have been as well-placed to survive the 2012 drought. And that’s as it should be. The demand for corn for feed is flat, and we’re growing more corn per acre. Our success in good years helps us survive challenges like 2012; and now, with the record crop harvested in 2013, we’re rebuilding corn stocks with a projected carry-out, or surplus, of nearly 1.5 billion bushels.” In contrast to poultry and livestock businesses, farmers from all over the country have written to the EPA and Congress to support the ethanol industry and protest the proposed limitations in the RFS. Representatives from the American Farm Bureau Federation and National Farmers Union have added their support to the ethanol industry and objected the changes to the RFS. Martin BarbreThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently proposed further reductions in ethanol and biofuel production in its Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) for 2014. These cuts will limit the amount of renewable fuel to fewer gallons than the industry manufactured in 2013. A coalition of livestock and poultry groups released a statement supporting the changes to the RFS. SHARE Barbre states, “Doesn’t everyone eat? Farming is not a special interest – it’s a general interest critical to our country. And a strong, stable ethanol industry helps everyone by providing for stronger, more stable farm economy.” To read his full article, visit https://www.ncga.com/news-and-resources/news-stories/article/2014/03/our-view-beware-the-free-corn-coalition. Facebook Twitter Previous articleCost of Bacon On the RiseNext articleFarmers Fail to Halt Land Grab by Cities Hoosier Ag Today This alliance, which National Corn Growers Association President Martin Barbre has dubbed the “Free Corn Coalition,” blames the ethanol fuel industry for increased corn costs and unstable viability of their businesses. While the price for corn reached a record of almost $8 per bushel in 2012 due to the drought, it has since decreased to almost half that price. The Free Corn Coalition believes limiting ethanol fuel production will bring the price of corn closer to its historical, if unsustainable, $2 per bushel.

A Disaster Waiting to Happen

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News A Disaster Waiting to Happen As American farmers harvest billions of bushels of corn and soybeans, much of this crop will find its way to market on trucks, trains, and river barges. But what would happen if this system came to a standstill?  The likelihood of a collapse in the U.S. transportation system is greater than you might think.  New research by the Mid-America Freight Coalition quantifies what many in agriculture have known for years: failure of our aging river locks and dams along the Mississippi River and its tributaries would be ruinous with billions of dollars in lost jobs and reduced economic activity.Recently, USDA released estimates of the economic implications to the agriculture sector should a disruption occur at either Lock & Dam 25 on the Upper Mississippi or La Grange Lock & Dam on the Illinois River waterway. The locations were selected because they are representative of the lock system as a whole, but also because they occupy key locations on the river system. “These are both 600 foot locks even though modern tows are 1,200 feet-long. They are also at the lower reaches of the waterways,” said Ken Hartman, chair of the National Corn Growers Association’s Market Access Action Team. “The southbound traffic here already contributes to long delays because of the lock size. But a disruption of any length of time related to their deteriorating condition would be catastrophic for family farmers who are increasingly dependent on exports and trade.”Among several important findings, the report concludes a L&D 25 closure could result in a loss of more than 7,000 jobs, $1.3 billion of labor income, and about $2.4 billion of economic activity (total industry output) annually.  Similarly, closing La Grange Lock & Dam could result in a reduction of 5,500 jobs, $900 million of labor income, and $1.8 billion of economic activity annually. “A majority of these locks were built in the 1930s and have surpassed their designed lifespan,” Hartman notes. “With growing demand being made on the system, upgrading the navigational efficiency of these waterways is a priority for corn farmers and NCGA, especially when most of our prospective customers are now overseas.”A total of 36 locks and dams, 28 on the Upper Mississippi River, are maintained at a 9-foot depth navigation channel for barge transportation.

By doing so, he took a photograph that has held national attention since.Moseley said at most games he covers, like the Dallas Cowboys or TCU, he’s not allowed out on the field. When he was allowed to be out there this time, he didn’t want to miss a photo opportunity like that.So, he didn’t.The photographer said he stood so he could get the players faces, then he saw Boykin start to come over to a young Iowa State fan, Abby Faber.“He knelt down, put both hands on the sides of her wheelchair and looked her right in the eyes,” Moseley said. “I was touched.”Faber serves as a kid captain at Iowa State, which means she has a challenging medical illness. Through Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa, which is partnered with Iowa State athletics, she can assist with coin tosses.Seven-year-old Abby Faber is an Iowa State fan who got to meet TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin before the kickoff of the football game Saturday in Ames, Iowa.Moseley says he was very lucky and privileged to have seen the exchange between the two. It showed him a lot about Boykin in the brief couple of seconds.“I was very impressed.” Moseley said.It wasn’t any big dramatic story, he said. It was about a man who said three kind words to a child.“‘What’s your name?’ And it was the way he said your,” Moseley said. “It’s like the way we talk to children.”In his press conference after the game, Boykin described the feeling of knowing he has support of fans from other teams as a “warm feeling.”“You really can’t put it into words,” Boykin said. “It makes me so unbelievably proud that I can be in this position.”The photograph Moseley took of the two has swept the social media world.It has been a trending topic on Yahoo, it has over 153 thousand likes on the Sports Center Instagram page and fans in and out of the Horned Frog community are talking about it.Moseley said it’s more than just a number; it’s a whole new set of people every time it’s shared. People pick it up and share it with their followers, who share it with theirs.“It just keeps going,” Moseley said. “It’s kind of surprising.”This isn’t the first time one of his photos has gone viral.Moseley says the most widely known photographs he has taken recently were portraits of American sniper Chris Kyle. He photographed him about a year before he was killed, and they were the only portraits of that style that existed. He said every news outlet used them after Chris died.“It’s the portrait you think of when you think of Chris,” Moseley said.Moseley also said the Star-Telegram talked to the Faber family and that Abby is really enjoying this experience.

COVID-19 Drives Suburban Migration

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / COVID-19 Drives Suburban Migration Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post According to a recent Redfin report, July found a surge of home buyers looking to leave expensive cities for more rural, inland locales. The current COVID-10 pandemic has taken its toll in many ways, among which includes how it has affected the housing migration.A growing trend finds home buyers fleeing the expensive coastal cities like San Francisco and New York in search of more affordable areas. According to Redfin, over one quarter (27.8%) of redfin.com users reported wanting to relocate to another metro area during the month of July.Experts are pointing directly to the increased number of people now working remotely (most from their own homes) as being a huge catalyst for this desire to move away from cities with sky-high costs of living and cramped density, thus downsizing their expenses and (hopefully) increasing their space and house size due to greater affordability in greener pastures.Veronica Clyatt, a Redfin agent in Pleasanton, CA, which is not far from one of the main cities responsible for this mass exodus (San Francisco), commented on this current (and growing) trend: “People who can work remotely are re-examining where they want to live, and for most of them that means they’re looking at places that are less expensive. I’ve had buyers drop out of their search in the Bay Area because they’re moving to Sacramento or Texas, and I’ve had people moving over to Pleasanton because it’s less expensive than San Francisco. Everyone wants a bigger house and a bigger yard, and they want to pay less. A lot of people moving away from the Bay Area have had it in the pipeline for awhile, and remote work is accelerating the process.”As to where people are looking to move? Among the most popular picks, according to Redfin data, include Sacramento, Phoenix, and Las Vegas, respectively. Within each of these three desired locales, an average home can still be nabbed for less than half a million ($475,000).

The court made the aforesaid observation after comparing defendant’s products “CrackO”, “Kracker King” and “Peek-a-Boo” with the plaintiff’s products namely “MONACO”, “KRACKJACK” and “HIDE & SEEK”.The comparative table referred to by the Court The comparative table referred to by the courtAccording to the plaintiff, their brand has been recognized as the most chosen fast-moving consumer goods since 2010and in the years 1939, 1971 and 1996, they began manufacturing and marketing its biscuits under the marks “MONACO”, “KRACKJACK” and “HIDE & SEEK”, respectively.To secure its statutory rights in the “MONACO”, “KRACKJACK” and “HIDE & SEEK”,  the plaintiff has applied for and secured trademark registration in respect of the same under the Trade Marks Act, 1999.In the months of July 2013, July 2014 and May 2017, the plaintiff created the latest packaging used in respect of its “MONACO”, “KRACKJACK” and “HIDE & SEEK” products, respectively.Appearing on behalf of the plaintiff, Senior Advocate Virag Tulzapurkar submitted that a bare perusal of defendants’ impugned products bearing the impugned trade dresses/packaging/labels would reveal that defendants have copied each and every element of plaintiffs’ packaging including the layout, colour combination, placement and all distinctive elements and features of their packaging to the last millimeter.He submitted that the defendants’ impugned trade dresses/packaging/labels are reproductions of the plaintiffs’ packaging. Moreover, the defendants’ use of the impugned trade dresses / packaging/labels amounts to infringement of plaintiffs’ copyright and passing off, Sr Adv Tulzapurkar contended.After considering the submissions and perusing through the photographs of the rival products, Court observed-“A comparison of the rival products hardly leaves any doubt about the manner in which Defendants have blatantly copied Plaintiffs’ Packaging/labels. There is no doubt that the rival labels are being used for identical products under nearly identical packaging and trade dresses. The labels/artworks/packaging/trade dresses of Defendants’ “CrackO”, “Kracker King” and “Peek-a-Boo” products are a reproduction of Plaintiffs’ Packaging used in respect of their “MONACO”, “KRACKJACK” and “HIDE & SEEK” products and/or reproductions of substantial parts thereof. It is apparent that Defendants must have had Plaintiffs’ products before them while designing the impugned packaging. The similarity in the rival packaging/labels cannot be a matter of coincidence.”Finally, granting ad-interim relief, Court noted-“In these circumstances, a strong prima facie case for the grant of ad interim reliefs is made out. Unless reliefs as prayed for are granted, Plaintiffs are likely to suffer irreparable injury. The balance of convenience is also in favour of Plaintiffs. There are no equities in favour of Defendants.”The Court also observed that since the Court Receiver of the High Court may not be in a position to travel in view of the Covid-19 pandemic and the protective measures enforced by the Government, Adv. Shrinivas Bobde will act as the Court Commissioner and as representative of the Court Receiver, Bombay High Court to execute the present order.As none appeared for the defendants, Court granted liberty to defendants to apply for variation of this order with 72 hours prior written notice to the advocates for plaintiffs.Along with Sr Adv Tulzapurkar, Advocates Hiren Kamod, Aditya Chitale, Nishin Shrikhande and Avinash Belge instructed by RKD Legal Services LLP appeared for the Plaintiffs.Click here to download the OrderNext Storylast_img read more

V. Ramana and Justice Surya Kant, the SG advanced, “I have mentioned the matter before the Listing Registrar. There is some urgency. It needs to be heard today. An order has been passed by the Delhi High court yesterday regarding the oxygen issue. The High Court, relying on Your Lordships’ directions, has asked the government officials to be present in person in contempt””What can we do?”, asked the bench.”This issue needs your attention. Please look into it. It is a pan-India issue”, urged the SG.”I don’t bear his matter, that is why I have given it to Justice Chandrachud’s bench”, said the CJI.”It may go anywhere. But let it be heard today, please”, prayed the SG.The CJI then directed that the matter be placed before a bench headed by Justice D. Y. Chandrachud and be listed as per his convenience.The Supreme Court, in an order passed on April 30, had directed the Central Government to rectify the oxygen deficit of NCT of Delhi on or before the midnight of May 3. The direction was passed based on an assurance of the Solicitor General that the oxygen needs of Delhi will be met. The Supreme Court bench comprised Justices Chandrachud, L. Nageswara Rao and Ravindra Bhat.Tags#Supreme Court #Oxygen #Delhi High Court #Show cause notice #Contempt Next Storylast_img read more
