To complement Episcopal News Service’s primary coverage, we have collected some additional news items from July 13.Bishops express gratitude to witnesses against gun violenceThe House of Bishops, meeting on the last day of the 79th General Convention, expressed their “deep gratitude” to the Schentrup family and Abigail Zimmerman for their “presence and witness” against gun violence.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.At a downtown Austin park on July 8, Philip and April Schentrup, members of Saint Mary Magdalene Episcopal Church in Coral Springs, Florida, shared their emotional and spiritual journey before dozens of bishops and hundreds of onlookers following the Ash Wednesday murder of their daughter Carmen in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.Carmen was among the 17 students and educators killed by a gunman at the Parkland, Florida. Resolution A279 also commends the keeping of Carmen to the “Almighty God” as well the 16 others killed and all victims of gun violence.Specifically, the resolution “expresses our deep gratitude to Philip and April Schentrup and their children, Evelyn and Robert,” and to Abigail Zimmerman “for their presence and witness among us.”Also at the July 8 gathering, Zimmerman, a ninth-grader and member of Saint Alban’s Episcopal Church in Waco, Texas, who co-led a school walkout in March in response to the Douglas High School massacre, shared the story of her work to organize students to campaign against gun violence.The bishops’ resolution “supports the young people of this church and their fellow students who have been striving to turn a moment into a movement for lasting chance in the culture of violence that infects our countries at every level of our societies.”– Mike PattersonGeneral Convention considers issues affecting lay employeesThe issue of equity for lay church employee pensions arose at General Convention from a proposal by a subcommittee of the special House of Deputies Committee on Sexual Harassment and Exploitation. They called for increasing required employer contributions to lay pension plans from the current nine percent to 18 percent, to match what is contributed for clergy.While Resolution A045 was amended to remove the mandated increase and instead have the Church Pension Fund study the steps necessary to provide equity in the pension plans for lay and ordained church workers, it did affirm “that in the interests of justice the pension plans for clergy and lay employees should be as equitable as possible.”During debate in the House of Deputies, the Rev. Terri L. Bays, deputy from Northern Indiana, said clergy and lay deputies who serve on vestries can go home and immediately address the issue of equity by virtue of their responsibility to negotiate compensation packages with lay employees. “Just because there is not a mandate, that does not mean that we cannot go back and demand this equity every time we negotiate a letter of agreement with our lay employees,” she said.Bays, who handles the diocese’s transition ministry process, said she regularly gets calls from vestry members “who want to know exactly where that cut-off point is so that they can avoid giving benefits to their lay employees.” She said, “We can put a stop to that, case by case, even as we await a decision on the steps necessary for a churchwide mandate.”Another action that could affect lay employees is Resolution B006, which requests that church employers provide a letter of agreement for any church employee, as part of a transparent hiring process and in accordance with the guidelines of the Manual for Business Methods in Church affairs.The resolution says such letters of agreement can describe duties and responsibilities of the position, including details about salary and benefits, and may also include provisions for an annual performance evaluation, procedures for the reconciliation of disagreements, and policies concerning dissolution.– Melodie WoermanThe Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, presented seven deputies with the 2018 House of Deputies medal for distinguished service to the Episcopal Church.

Resolution A053 charged the House of Deputies Committee on the State of the Church with designing a simplified report that is “relevant to the diversity of the Episcopal Church’s participation in God’s mission in the world.”The resolution further asks that the data in the report be “easily collected and compiled” and relevant to the work of those who utilize the data. Finally, the resolution requests an improved user interface for entering and downloading data.During testimony on July 5, skeptical legislative committee members expressed concerns that the changes specified in the resolution might place too much of an added burden on congregations. There was also concern expressed about the relevance of the data collected. The resolution that was approved at the convention is an amended and streamlined version of what was originally proposed.– Mike Patterson Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

This is a project took place in a suburban residential district called Sayama New Town, located in southeast Osaka. This district was developed around 40 years ago. Being still popular as a bed town, it currently holds newly built houses as well.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe clients requested a house where their child and dog can run around energetically. I thought, by living with a dog, people can interact with neighbors during the every-day walk, feeling rich external environments such as weather, climate, and seasons. I wanted to actively incorporate such a by-product produced by the life with a dog into the house.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSo, I made a space with an earthen floor like a promenade in the center of the house. This promenade acts as an entrance, a corner of a living room, engawa (Japanese-style loggia), hallway, and part of the terrace. It enables the residents to communicate not only indirectly but also directly with others.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe residents can interact with others in the promenade like they chat on outside roadsides. In the future, the outside terrace and the roof terrace on the second floor can be connected with staircases so that an aisle can appear. This aisle will connect the local area, the first floor, and the second floor and allow the residents to move around. I imagined a new color could be added to the residents’ lives by this promenade placed in the middle of the house. Even though the house is surrounded by walls and other residents, this promenade can foster relationships between people and between people and pets.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiAlso, the south side of the house needed to be widely covered temporarily because of some land conditions. So, we built a temporal wall made of polycarbonate corrugated plates stuck to tube and coupler scaffolding. We regarded the promenade, the terrace, and the living room as one combined space. We surrounded it with the temporal wall and L-shaped external wall so that the border between the inside space and the outside space would be vague and the living space could be extended.Save this picture!DiagramThen, I maximized the amount of sunlight coming inside the house by using FRP folded plates for a roof above the promenade and lowering the roof terrace’s height placed above the kitchen space on the west side. I selected each material equally for both the inside and outside walls. The L-shaped external wall protects the home as an unchanging solid-looking wall. The south-side outside wall uses a temporal and light material. The inside wall of the water section reflects the lights and colors of lives.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiEven with its surrounding structure, I aimed to create a house that brings the town’s richness inside the home by incorporating somewhat outside-like materials and settings like the promenade.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiProject gallerySee allShow lessUnterholz and Oberholz Installations / Christoph Hesse ArchitectsSelected ProjectsConcrete Jungle House / N O T ArchitectureSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeSAI Architectural Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsOsakaOn FacebookJapanPublished on March 23, 2021Cite: “M+K House / SAI Architectural Design Office” 23 Mar 2021.

Pinterest Twitter Twitter Local NewsBusiness Facebook TAGS Pinterest CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 28, 2021– Hyperquake introduces The Neuropulse Program™ to track emotional engagement that can be used to enhance a broad range of business-building creative content, including consumer product development, marketing, communications, digital or in-person experiences, and other applications to optimize engagement and influence purchase behavior. “Businesses large and small can finally test excitement for new products, and nonprofits can measure the efficacy of messaging in real time. The potential use for the technology, like the study of neuroscience itself, is limitless,” stated Colin Crotty, CEO of Hyperquake. “By measuring what people’s brains value, we can provide insights to enhance experiences, optimize messaging, measure engagement, track leadership and sales readiness, and influence purchases or behavior.” For example, a company could test consumer reactions to a commercial’s message before spending millions airing it on TV. Or a company could test messaging for employee training or corporate brand building before investing in it company wide. Hyperquake lets businesses go beyond what consumers choose to or are capable of telling them — to sense the unsaid. The program is a cloud-based solution using proprietary technology developed in partnership with Immersion Neuroscience and Dr. Paul Zak, the neuroscientist and Immersion CEO who pioneered the quantification of the neurochemical oxytocin to predict decisions and outcomes. Attention and emotional resonance are the key indicators of future actions such as intent to buy a product, adoption of a leader’s vision, ability to remember a message, or to advocate for a brand. Neuropulse combines real-time tracking of what people value with data-driven expertise to predict human actions that will move businesses forward with over 80 percent accuracy. Neuropulse is the product of twenty years and millions of dollars in research by Zak and the Immersion team, combined with Hyperquake’s expert insights on what causes customers to act. Hyperquake clients Salesforce, NetApp, and T-Mobile/Sprint already use the Neuropulse Program’s new technology to optimize emotional engagement and deliver the best experiences for their audiences. “With Neuropulse, we were really getting into what our audience is thinking, especially when we can’t see them in person,” said Sara Cattanach, senior manager, Corporate Messaging at Salesforce. “It was just so seamlessly well done.” The versatility of Neuropulse’s cloud-based collaboration tools and compatibility with most wearable devices comes at a time when brands are searching for safe and effective ways to track the pulse of their consumers amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Neuropulse can be deployed 100 percent virtually with better accuracy and lower cost than traditional market research,” Crotty noted. “At Immersion, we measure love and help our users create more of it,” said Scott Brown, CEO of Immersion. “We are very excited to expand our work with the Hyperquake team and support the Neuropulse solution. By combining Hyperquake’s brand, business & consumer insights with our distributed Neuroscience as a Service platform, the Neuropulse solution is a perfect fit for companies that want to understand and connect with their audience.” Hyperquake is a Cincinnati-based strategic firm that grows businesses through stories and experiences for a mix of clients such as Allergan, Castellini Produce, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Honeywell, Mike Albert Leasing, Nike, Pure Romance, P&G, P&R Communications, and Verizon.

This report assesses the connected device market segment including consumer, enterprise, and industrial devices with associated connected device market sizing from 2021 to 2026. It evaluates applications and solutions in each market segment for major industry verticals including agriculture, advertising and media, automobiles, energy management, healthcare, manufacturing, oil & gas, public safety, and telecommunications. The number, type, and purpose of connected devices is rapidly expanding as the Internet of Things (IoT) evolves beyond the current state of limited applications, many of which remain isolated and purpose-built for a given use case, industry verticals, and companies. Over the course of the next five years, many IoT applications will become increasingly interconnected. Some of these applications will be enhanced through communication with a smart device, which is a connected device that benefits embedded intelligence. In contrast, an IoT Device need not be smart, and in fact, many are relatively unintelligent devices that are typically single-purpose and rely upon intelligence to be provided elsewhere for data processing, analytics, analysis, and dispersal of actionable information, typically via a cloud services model. It is important to note that cloud services may be either centralized or distributed via Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) infrastructure. MEC will also facilitate an entirely new class of low-power devices that rely upon MEC equipment for processing. Stated differently, some IoT devices will be very light-weight computationally speaking, relying upon edge computing nodes for most of their computation needs. However, AIoT is a dominant trend that the publisher of this report sees supporting connected devices via both distributed and centralized AI support for devices. As AIoT causes networks and systems to become increasingly more cognitive in nature, connected devices that previously acted in a purely deterministic manner will leverage AI for decision-making, which may occur locally via edge computing and/or centrally via core cloud computing. As part of this evolution, devices will also increasingly engage in peer-to-peer communications including signaling and data exchange. This will create both an opportunity and a challenge connected device management as they will need to rely upon the AI-based cybersecurity solutions involving trust management.

Essentially, the ‘complaint’ of the ‘consumer-complainant’ may exhibit dissatisfaction with the ‘defect’ in the goods bought. On 16/02/2015, Supreme Elevators India Pvt. Ltd., based in Gujarat, was ordered to compensate and remove their defective elevator from the premises of Smt. Tara Bai Desai Charitable Opthalmic Trust Hospital (‘Opthalmic Trust Hospital’), based in Jodhpur. In due course, National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission did not accept this was a ‘consumer dispute’ and concluded, on 02/04/2019, that, i) Opthalmic Trust Hospital is run by a ‘trust'; ii) a ‘trust’ is not a ‘consumer’; and iii) a ‘trust’ cannot file a ‘complaint’ under the Act. Did the remedy necessarily lie elsewhere? Should not a ‘trust’ be able to maintain an action and claim compensation under the provisions of the Act? Should not a ‘trust’ be included in the definition of ‘person’, a word appearing in the definition of ‘consumer’? A bench of two Judges of Supreme Court of India (‘SC’) referred the issue to a larger bench, on 04/10/2019. The definition of ‘consumer’ in Section 2(1)(d) of the Act begins with the five words, “consumer means any person who…”. Pratibha Pratisthan & Ors. v. Manager, Canara Bank & Ors., (2017) 3 SCC 712 was clear, a ‘trust’ is not a ‘person’ and therefore not a ‘consumer’. This is questionable. A ‘person’ has been defined in Section 2(1)(m) of the Act. It is an inclusive definition, made evident by usage of the expression ‘includes’. Interestingly, Ramanlal Bhailal Patel v. State of Gujarat, (2008) 5 SCC 449 explained, ‘includes’ indicates an intention to enlarge the meaning of the word it is used for. When a word is defined to include so and so, the definition is extensive and not restrictive. SC was correct in pointing out, “The definition of ‘person’ in terms of Section 2(1)(m) is also an inclusive definition… the legislative intent appears to have a wider coverage.” Indeed, sub-clause (iv) to Section 2(1)(m) of the Act allows an ‘unregistered firm’, “which otherwise has certain disabilities in law”, to be a ‘person’ and hence a ‘consumer’. It would be odd to admit, in the context of the Act, an ‘association of persons’, unregistered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, is a ‘consumer’ while a ‘trust’ is not. A ‘person’, who is not a human being, is a ‘juristic person’ in some jurisdictions. The expression ‘person’ appears in the definition of ‘consumer’ in the South African Consumer Protection Act, 2008 too. However, in contrast, the definition of ‘person’ includes a ‘juristic person’ and the definition of ‘juristic person’ includes a ‘trust’. Shriomani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee, Amritsar v. Som Nath Dass, (2000) 4 SCC 146 interpreted, a ‘juristic person’ to be an ‘artificially created person’, the recognition of which in the realm of law/rights/obligations is for “subserving the needs and faith of the society”. Should not Indian law, like South African law, identify a ‘trust’ as a ‘person’, a ‘juristic person’? At least, as regards the Negotiable Instruments Act, 1881, Hon’ble High Court of Madras in 2012 and Hon’ble High Court of Gujarat in 2017 answered in affirmative. It is true, what has not been provided for in the statute cannot be supplied by the Courts as a rule. But, consideration of conditions which gave rise to the Act and the mischief the Act wished to remedy must convince the Court to supplement the written word to give force and life to legislative intention. The argument concerning legislature’s intention to have a ‘trust’ fall within the definition of ‘person’ in Section 2(1)(m) of the Act and hence fall within the definition of ‘consumer’ in Section 2(1)(d) of the Act needs further review. A ‘person’ who obtains goods, whether with a ‘defect’ or not, for “resale or for any commercial purpose” is not a ‘consumer’. The term ‘commercial purpose’ must be interpreted on basis of facts and circumstances.  Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust v. M/s. Unique Shanti Developers & Ors., (2020) 2 SCC 265 decided by two Judges of SC, on 14/11/2019, is relevant to understand. Was the purchase of flats for providing accommodation to nurses, employed by Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust’s hospital, qualify as a purchase for a ‘commercial purpose’? It was answered in negative. “The purchase of the good or service should have a close and direct nexus with a profit-generating activity… It has to be seen whether the dominant intention or dominant purpose for the transaction was to facilitate some kind of profit generation for the purchaser and/or their beneficiary… The paramount object of providing such facilities is to cater to the needs of nurses and combat the challenges faced by those who lack permanent accommodation in the city, so as to recompense the nurses for the pivotal role which they play as co-ordinators and custodians of patients’ care… The provision of hostel facilities to nurses so as to facilitate better medical care is a positive duty enjoined upon the hospital so as to maintain the beneficial effects of the curative care efforts undertaken by it. Such a duty exists irrespective of the surplus or turnover generated by the hospital, and hence is not even remotely related to the object of earning profits or for any commercial use as envisaged under Section 2(1)(d).” Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust, providing flats, without rent, for nurses at their hospital, was held to be a ‘consumer’. Opthalmic Trust Hospital providing an elevator without entry fee, for doctors/nurses/patients/visitors, must be held to be a ‘consumer’ too. It must be mentioned, neither the flat nor the elevator was directly intended to generate profit. There are several ‘trusts’ with hospitals possessing poor-building-quality flats, for nurses, or out-of-order elevators, for doctors/nurses/patients/visitors. The identification of such ‘trusts’ with hospitals as ‘consumers’ and to grant them relief under the Act shall ‘subserve the needs and faith of the society’. It is of some curiosity that, SC in 1995, when assessing the situation of an invalid man, who had no means of livelihood and purchased an auto-rickshaw, eventually proved defective, to be plied and operated by someone else on payment, said, “there is certainly some logic” to accept the invalid man to be a ‘consumer’. But the logic did not lead to legal acceptance because of restraints concerning Judge-made law. Certainly, Lilavati Kirtilal Mehta Medical Trust’s flat and Opthalmic Trust Hospital’s elevator is much above, and not below, the certainty of “some logic” in the invalid man’s auto-rickshaw example. The reliance on Pratibha Pratisthan & Ors. v. Manager, Canara Bank & Ors., (2017) 3 SCC 712 continues. A referral to a larger bench than two Judges of SC does not impede the reliance. A question regarding ‘consumer law’ in New India Assurance Co. Ltd. v. Hilli Multipurpose Cold Storage Pvt. Ltd., [Civil Appeal Nos. 10941-10942 of 2013] was directed to be placed before the Chief Justice of India, on 18.01.2017, by two Judges of SC and was answered by five Judges of SC, on 04.03.2020.
