During the daytime the house exudes simplicity and is modest in appearance. At night, however, the house is transformed into an urban “lantern” emitting subtle light; the illuminated interior becomes visible to the outside through intricately treated fenestration. This duality confers an element of drama on the building. Stylistically, however, the house reflects neither the organic nor the vernacular tradition but is a logical response to climate and urban setting. Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaWith limitations of a10-foot setback and a building footprint of less than 3.5 perches, the 6.79 perch site located in Woodland Avenue, Kohuwela, is constrained for space. The client’s requirement of a four bedroom house with natural lighting and space seemed a near impossibility. However, through concealment of beams, columns hidden within walls and creation of large openings to the exterior an articulate progression of spaces has been achieved. Experienced from the inside, the house’s interaction with the outdoor natural environment is evident.Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaAt ground level the living and dining spaces fuse with the front and rear terraces that extend from it. The inside-outside separation has been minimised through the use of large clear glass sliding windows through which one sees the internal timber floor continuing to the exterior decking – with no differences in levels. On an evening of entertainment, therefore, one could utilize the terraces as an extension of the living area since both spaces are visually and materially integrated.Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaThe central stairwell is the pivotal element around which all the other spaces are organized. The glass skylight above the stairwell brings in natural light which subtly percolates down through the open stairs to the lower levels, creating a constant play of light and shadow that enriches the monochrome white spaces. The stairwell also acts as an air funnel. Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaThe UV-coated glass roof open at the ends for air to exit, contributes to a vacuum effect due to negative pressure being created at this level on account of warm air rising up from the lower levels and constantly cooling the building. This functions as the main climate regulating device in the house.Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaThe first floor TV cum family room is a place for unwinding at the end of the busy workday.Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaSince this space looks on to the main road, the fenestration had to be treated with dual filtering layers of glazing and louvers. Both offer options for varying levels of desired privacy and ventilation for the user.  The bedrooms, inclusive of the master bedroom, have attached terraces that are screened for privacy. Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaThe glazed sliding doors provide an opportunity to amalgamate the terraces with the interior. This enables the spaces of the rooms to spill out effortlessly on to the outdoor terraces. An added feature is the roof top terrace with its unobtrusive planting: a quiet garden space has been created here to engage with nature.Save this picture!© Eresh WeerasuriyaThe materials used, the rich black and tan of the Kumbuk, the ochered Teak, cement shades of the floor and the grays of the louvers and window, stand out against the white walls softening the harsh white light from the outside to create a rich and quietly glowing ambience. The end product unifies within its folds the two mutually exclusive concepts of “minimalist” and “ostentatious. It is an elegant example of contemporary space that has transcended programmatic requirements in a manner that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.Project gallerySee allShow lessCall for Participation: Use-ReUse Adaptive ModernismArchitecture NewsCalatrava’s World Trade Center Transit Hub Fails to ImpressArchitecture News Share Architects: Isurunath Pramitha Associates Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Colombo, Sri Lanka Houseslast_img read more

Pilot in East River chopper crash says emergency fuel lever inadvertently shut off

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — The pilot of the helicopter that crashed into the East River in New York last Sunday has told federal safety investigators that moments before the craft hit the water, he noticed a passenger tether under the emergency fuel shutoff lever, which had been inadvertently shifted up into the off position – but by then, he said, it was too late to restart the engine.In a 2010 letter to the FAA reviewed by ABC News, the NTSB had warned the agency of incidents in which straps had “become entwined” with fuel levers on choppers like the one that crashed in the East River. The manufacturer, Eurocopter, added additional lever locking devices to new models starting in 2012. The chopper that crashed was manufactured in 2013.The pilot, the sole survivor of the crash that killed five passengers, says he twice briefed them on how to use the cutting tools placed on the harnesses if they needed to cut themselves out, according to the NTSB.At one point, the pilot said he noticed the front passenger’s restraint was hanging from the seat and asked him to put it back on. This was not unusual, he said, as passengers were moving around to take pictures, the report said.Shortly thereafter, the same passenger turned sideways and extended his feet outside the helicopter, according to the preliminary report, which does not discuss the probable cause of the accident.The doors of the chopper were open – something the FAA banned for flights that don’t use quick-release restraint systems in the wake of the crash.It was at that moment that the chopper began to suffer what appeared at the time to be an engine failure, the pilot told investigators.After telling the passengers to get back in their seats as the aircraft began to descend, the pilot attempted to restart the engine, but his first two tries were unsuccessful, he said in an NTSB interview.He began to prepare for a water landing and activated floats on the helicopter’s skids at about 800 feet.He reached down and noticed the emergency fuel shutoff lever was in the “off” position and a portion of the front seat passenger’s tether was underneath the lever, according to his account.He turned the fuel lever back on, tried to restart the engine and it began to work, but he didn’t have enough altitude to fully restart, he told investigators. He positioned the lever back to off, hit the water, climbed up onto the belly and called for help, he said.The manufacturer – rebranded in 2014 as Airbus Helicopters – did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Man who allegedly raped, strangled teen in 1984 identified with genetic genealogy: Sheriff

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — Genetic genealogy has led authorities to the man who allegedly raped and strangled to death a Wisconsin teenager decades ago.But there will be no arrest since the suspect, Philip Cross, died of a drug overdose in 2012, Ozaukee County Sheriff Jim Johnson said at a news conference on Tuesday.On the morning of Dec. 15, 1984, Traci Hammerberg, 18, was found battered and naked from the waist down, lying on a driveway, Johnson said. She had been violently raped, strangled and repeatedly struck on the side of her head, the sheriff said.The night before, she had gone to a party with friends, and was last seen leaving the party on foot, the sheriff said.“She was known to accept rides from people she knew, or hitchhike,” the sheriff said.Cross, who was 21 at the time of the crime, was identified as a suspect this year after investigators turned to genetic genealogy, which uses an unknown suspect’s DNA from a crime scene to trace his or her family tree based on relatives who voluntarily submitted their DNA to a public database.The first public arrest through genetic genealogy was the April 2018 arrest of the suspected “Golden State Killer.”Since then, genetic genealogy has helped lead to dozens of other suspect identifications. But it has also drawn criticism from some civil liberties advocates, who say it raises significant privacy concerns.The DNA left on Hammerberg’s body was uploaded to a public genetic genealogy database, which analysts used to begin building a family tree of the possible suspect, the sheriff said.The closest relative was a second cousin, the sheriff said, and from there, analysts started building a family tree and looking for related men who could have been a suspect.On Aug. 28, Philip Cross was identified as a potential suspect, the sheriff said. His DNA was obtained from his 2012 autopsy, and on Sept. 3, investigators got confirmation that the DNA profile from Hammerberg’s body was consistent with Cross’ DNA, Johnson said.Cross was never interviewed in connection to Hammerberg’s killing, authorities said, though they might have known one another. Hammerberg’s brother says Cross used to ride the same school bus as them, authorities said.In a police interview in 1978 following a reported car theft, Cross allegedly said he “sometimes” “does things without realizing what he’s doing,” the sheriff said.Cross served time in prison for forgery and was released in April 1984, Johnson said.In 1991 Cross allegedly tried to strangle a woman; the woman escaped and said she did not know what triggered Cross to attack her, Johnson said.The sheriff said he has “mixed feelings” that Cross cannot be arrested for this crime.“I wanted him to face greater justice. He stole Traci’s life. He was able to live the life he wanted,” Johnson said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Authorities: Pediatrician who killed himself may have forged patients’ vaccination records

first_imgMarianVejcik/iStock(CHICAGO) — An Illinois pediatrician who died by suicide last year may have forged patient’s vaccination medical records, according to investigators.The Cook County Sheriff’s Office began investigating the vaccinations provided by Dr. Van Koinis, 58, who died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound in September, after a suicide note left behind “raised questions” about the record-keeping of vaccinations at his medical practice in Evergreen Park, about 15 miles south of Chicago, the sheriff’s office said in a statement provided to ABC Chicago station WLS-TV.During the investigation into Koinis’ death, authorities found it was unclear who did and did not receive vaccinations due to record-keeping issues, according to the statement.Investigators also found that Koinis, in some cases, did not provide vaccinations to children at their parent’s request. It is unclear how many patients may have been affected.Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart told the Chicago Sun-Times that Koinis “regretted his conduct with immunizations,” which he had been “adverse” to during the last decade of work at his practice.Dart told the local newspaper Koinis may have forged vaccination documents at the request of parents.Authorities are now recommending that former patients of Koinis discuss this possibility with their current physicians and inquire about methods to test for prior vaccinations, “out of an abundance of caution.”Koinis had been licensed to practice in Illinois since 1991, authorities said. He mostly served patients on Chicago’s southwest side and near southwest suburbs, according to the sheriff’s office.Alzein Pediatrics, the pediatric group that received Koinis’ records, posted a tribute to him following the news of his death last year.The practice has now posted an option on its website for former patients of Koinis to download a medical records release form.The investigation is ongoing, and the Illinois Department of Public Health has been notified.If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Case round-up

first_img Comments are closed. Case round-upBy Pinsents Employment Group on 1 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Serco Limited v Lawson, Court of Appeal Limits on the liability of overseas workers to claim in UK employment tribunals Lawson was employed as a security supervisor for a company registered in England and Wales with a head office in Middlesex. He was recruited in England, paid in England but employed in Ascension Island. He resigned, alleging a breach of the average weekly working time limit in the Working Time Regulations and brought a claim of unfair dismissal. The issue was whether he could bring such a claim.  An employment tribunal ruled that he could not, a decision upheld by the Court of Appeal.Key pointsBefore October 1999, the Employment Rights Act provided that a claim of unfair dismissal to an employment tribunal could not be made where, under the contract of employment, the employee ordinarily worked outside Great Britain. Since that provision was repealed there has been much confusion about the ability of employees working for UK companies overseas to enforce statutory UK employment rights. The Court of Appeal decision in this case is notable for completely rejecting all of the tests that have emerged over recent years to address this issue. Whether an employee working overseas can bring a complaint does not depend on “a sufficient or substantial connection” with the UK, a “base test”, a “territorial test” or whether the claim is brought against an employer who resides or carries on business in England and Wales. According to the Court of Appeal, the answer is straightforward: the right to claim unfair dismissal “applies to employment in Great Britain”.It will undoubtedly be difficult to apply this test in marginal cases. However, the Court of Appeal firmly concluded that Lawson’s case did not meet the test: he was clearly employed in Ascension Island, no matter how strong his and his employer’s connection with the UK.  While tribunals will need to account for all the circumstances of any case, the key issue will be where the employee was employed to work. What you should do– Audit your overseas staff to identify those with UK employment rights– Do not forget that overseas staff may have employment rights in the country in which they work, not just the UK.Fairhurst Ward Abbotts v Botes Building Limited, Court of AppealTUPE and the retendering of a service on a different geographical basis* * * A local authority had contracted out the supply of building maintenance services. When it retendered the contract, it split the contract into two geographical areas, Area 1 and Area 2.  It invited separate tenders for each area. No contractor could obtain both contracts.  Fairhurst successfully tendered for Area 2, replacing the incumbent contractor, Botes. A dispute then arose about the application of TUPE. Fairhurst argued that the geographical split of the contract on retendering meant that TUPE could not apply. That argument failed at the employment tribunal and in the Court of Appeal.Key pointsIt is well known that whether or not TUPE applies on the retendering of a contract it involves a two-stage analysis. First, there must be a stable economic entity, in the hands of the contractor, which is capable of being transferred. The next question is whether that undertaking has actually transferred to the new contractor. Fairhurst’s argument was that, although TUPE can apply to the transfer of part of an undertaking, the transferred part had to be a separate identifiable economic entity before the transfer. Here, the outgoing contractor’s economic entity was the supply of the services to the whole local authority area, not just Area 2. This was not the same entity as transferred when the contract was re-tendered.The Court of Appeal firmly rejected this argument. TUPE applies as much to the transfer of part of an undertaking as to the whole of an undertaking. The transferer must have a recognised economic entity before the transfer and any transferred part must amount to a recognised economic entity in the hands of the transferee. It is sufficient if a part of the larger stable economic entity becomes identified for the first time as a separate economic entity on the transfer of a part from the whole. This analysis is equally valid in business sale cases, so that the acquisition of part of a larger business could be caught by TUPE if the acquired part becomes a recognised economic entity in the hands of the purchaser. The Court of Appeal also upheld the tribunal’s decision that one employee on long-term sick leave at the time of the transfer was entitled to transfer to Fairhurst. Although absent from work, on the facts he was clearly assigned to work in Area 2.What you should do– Contractors bidding for only part of a wider undertaking should carefully investigate which employees are assigned to that undertaking and have the right to transfer– Existing contractors should ensure that the assignment of staff to parts of the contract is backed up with documentary evidence. This will help to avoid disputes with new contractors.Case of the month by Chris MordueInjury to feelings award in unfair dismissal caseDunnachie v Kingston upon Hull City Council, Court of Appeal Damages allowed for injury to feelings in unfair dismissal claims Dunnachie successfully claimed constructive dismissal following a prolonged campaign of harassment by his line manager. The harassment, the council’s failure to deal with his complaints, and its attempts to deter him from invoking its harassment policy, amounted to a breach of trust and confidence. Dunnachie’s ordeal affected his health but he suffered no recognised psychiatric injury. An employment tribunal included in his compensatory award an amount of £10,000 for injury to feelings. The Court of Appeal overturned an EAT ruling that no such award could be made. This is a landmark ruling overturning a principle dating from 1971 that unfair dismissal compensation could only take account of financial losses. That long-standing position had been thrown into doubt in 2001, when the House of Lords in Johnson v Unisys ruled that an employee could not recover damages as part of a wrongful dismissal claim for psychiatric injury caused by the manner of a dismissal, suggested that unfair dismissal damages could include awards for injury to feelings. Subsequently, some employment tribunals began to make such awards. Last year the EAT in Dunnachie ruled that this practice was wrong, a decision now overturned on appeal. This case is likely to go to the House of Lords. Nonetheless, the current legal position is that employees can recover damages for injured feelings in unfair dismissal cases, as part of an award that is “just and equitable in all the circumstances of the case”. The Court of Appeal indicated that there are limits to this position. Not every upset caused by an unfair dismissal will attract compensation: “the power is there to permit tribunals to compensate an employee for a real injury to his/her self respect”. The Court of Appeal further stressed that awards are likely in cases of constructive dismissal where the employee has been driven from his/her job, particularly in cases of bullying and harassment. The scale of awards is likely to be set by reference to benchmarks developed in discrimination cases, essentially falling into bands of £500 to £5,000, £5,000 to £15,000 and £15,000 to £25,000, depending on the severity of the case. What you should do – Adopt and enforce robust bullying and harassment policies – Make sure employees are aware of the policies and their right to complain – Ensure that complaints are handled sensitively and taken seriously – Give managers guidance on how to deal appropriately with staff. Watch this space– In Street v Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre the Court of Appeal will consider when a public interest disclosure is made “in good faith”.– In Commissioners of Inland Revenue v Ainsworth, the EAT will be asked to reconsider the ability of an employee to take paid annual leave under the Working Time Regulations while on sick leave.

Trinity to offer bursaries to bereaved students

first_imgTrinity College has received a donation of over £5 million from an alumnus, which will go towards providing bursaries for students who have lost one or both parents.Peter Levine, a multi-millionaire oil magnate who studied at Trinity in the 1970s lost his father while at university studying Jurisprudence, and his mother shortly afterwards.The money which he has donated to the college will be used to provide grants to students who are in need but do not qualify for Oxford bursaries. Unusually, undergraduates who have lost a parent will take priority, marking the first time since the Victorian era that money will be set aside at Oxford specifically for bereaved students.Kevin Knott, the Acting Development Director at Trinity, confirmed the donation, telling Cherwell that “[the donation] will be applied to establishing endowments for two or possibly three Fellowships, towards building works, and to supplement what the University and the College is already doing in terms of providing financial support for undergraduates.”Knott stressed the increasing need for financial support from alumni, saying that he hopes “the donation will encourage even more old members to provide funding for student support, particularly in the light of the tuition fee increases in 2012.”A Trinity finalist praised Mr Levine’s generosity, saying, “I think it’s a fantastic donation and the student body is thrilled at the gesture, if it is spent on improving access. Trinity has high rent and a pretty poor reputation for access, and if donations like this are spent on countering that image, we are extremely grateful to Mr Levine.“It’s really important that we foster a culture of giving to our schools and universities in Britain, and it’s great that actions like this get the media attention they deserve, as it will hopefully inspire others to follow.”Levine, 55, founded the oil exploration and production company Imperial Energy in 2004. He sold it for £1.4 billion in 2008 to an Indian energy firm, earning him a personal gain of £90 million. In May 2011 The Sunday Times Rich List valued his net worth at £120 million.last_img read more
