The topography, the solar orientation, the existing trees and the care with the function were the elements that helped to shape the first sketches of this project. In the definition of volumes and plans, the natural elements entered. Much of the native vegetation of the terrain was maintained, as a premise, for the launch of the architectural party. Well-resolved plans and volumes are tools that are widely used in Modernist architecture, which inspire the office with the minimum of traits giving maximum results.Save this picture!© Nicola LabateSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Nicola LabateHouse designed for a young couple with a little daughter, sportsmen, nature lovers, wine and the well live. A swimming pool with a 20-meter streak (which is used daily for swimming) and a cellar in the basement prove this. These materials, when “protected” by the fad, help to leave the house timeless. Stones were used (gray granite, levigado swallow, travertine marble and canjiquinha stone), wood (on the decks and pergolas) as well as brick, steel, and apparent concrete. Save this picture!© Nicola LabateThese constructive materials treated as finishing, highlight the features of the architecture. When the architecture is well resolved, the furniture accompanies. We value mainly national designers in furniture with natural finishes, choosing in some cases pieces well straight and clean. Wood trusses were used primarily to provide greater thermal comfort, to allow a constant air circulation in the room and to filter the light of the setting sun that enters the intimate circulation. Save this picture!© Nicola LabateThus, we have won a marvelous, striking aesthetic result in the house. The vision of a simple and well-resolved architecture, in the ratio between plans and volumes, in the balanced use of materials, in the correct integration of the sectors, in the care of details. These are the premises of a happy project.

Magician Steve’s big trick goes global

0 Comments

first_imgHE’S escaped being burned at the stake in King John’s Castle, wriggling out of 100 feet of rope and padlocks in just over 40 seconds to avoid being  broiled in a burning bath. But Coonagh magician, Steve Spade was nervous being filmed for a US Travel channel. ‘It goes to 98 million homes in the US  and 97 million others in English speaking countries. Let’s just say I was nervous,” said Steve (27). Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He came to the attention of the crew of the national Geographic channel after his escape from the burning pyre in the ‘Sacrifice’ montage of Elemental Festival in Limerick last month.Steve filmed a piece for the show which will screen in late November, but there is twist to the end of the story that he cannot reveal until the show is broadcast.Steve is a professional escapologist and illusionist. He is about to start touring a Houdini Tribute show with his stage partner, Anthony Black.A Houdini fan since he was six years of age, Steve has studied everything written or documented about the great man’s life and work. “He was fantastic.  The show I do is the real, traditional Houdini style escapology – real live escapes”.Steve explains that the traditional escapes are a matter of getting out of tight places, sometimes with painful consequences.“Houdini said he could deliberately dislocate both shoulders to escape. I’ve found putting a shoulder back in after a show is no fun at all, but it happens”.Houdini died at Halloween, October 31 1926 and now Steve is planning to hold a séance to contact his hero. “Talk about a great exit. Houdini said that if there was an after life, he would find a way to escape it and come back so I’m going to try to open the door for him to do that”.The young Limerick magician needs a venue to whicch he can invite about 50 people for the séance. Anyone who can help is asked to get in to touch.“Somewhere atmospheric would be great, maybe somewhere that has been some ghost activity. “Shannon Development was fantastic in letting me do the ‘Sacrifice’ escape in King John’s Castle and I’m hoping to find somewhere suitable for this event as well”, he said… before disappearing from view.

This will cover those who work as delivery persons for online food delivery platforms, e-commerce sites etc.’Platform worker’ is a person who has a work arrangement outside of a traditional employer-employee relationship in which organisations or individuals use an online platform to access other organisations or individuals to solve specific problems or to provide specific services or any such other activities which may be notified by the Central Government, in exchange for payment(Section 2(60)).”Unorganised worker” means a home-based worker, self-employed worker or a wage worker in the unorganised sector and includes a worker in the organised sector who is not covered by the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 or Chapters III to VII of the Code(Section 2(86)).The Code mandates that the Central Government should frame a scheme for the welfare of these classes of employees in relation to (i) life and disability cover; (ii) health and maternity benefits; (iii) old age protection; (iv) education; and (v) any other benefit as may be determined by the Central Government (Chapter IX).Also, the State Governments are mandated to frame shceme for these employees in relation to (i) provident fund; (ii) employment injury benefit; (iii) housing; (iv) educational schemes for children; (v) skill upgradation of workers; (vi) funeral assistance; and (vii) old age homesEvery unorganised worker, gig worker or platform worker shall be required to be registered under the Code provided that the person has completed 16 years of age. Aadhaar number is mandatory for such registration.Role of aggregators: The Code states that schemes for gig workers and platform workers may be funded through a combination of contributions from the central government, state governments, and aggregators, who are listed in Schedule 7. The Schedule lists nine categories including ride-sharing services, food and grocery delivery services, content and media services, and e-marketplaces. Any contribution from such an aggregator may be at a rate notified by the government falling between 1-2% of the annual turnover of the aggregators. However, such contribution cannot exceed 5% of the amount paid or payable by an aggregator to gig workers and platform workers.  Definition of ‘wages’ revised : Section 2(88)The Code says that all remuneration (in monetary terms), whether by way of salaries, allowances, or otherwise, would form part of wages and also includes basic pay, dearness allowance, and retaining allowance. The components excluded for calculation of wages under the Code are bonus not forming part of remuneration, house rent (or the value of living accommodation), provident fund, commission to the employee, overtime allowance, and conveyance allowances, where the aggregate amount paid under these heads does not exceed 50 percent of the total remuneration being paid to the employee. the total excluded components should not exceed 50% of the total remuneration. The third part of the definition provide limit as the definition very clearly specifies the list of exclusions so anything which is paid to the employees other than the exclusion would be covered and within this specific exclusion the limit cannot be more than 50%.Definition of ‘inter-state migrant worker’ expanded to include self-employed persons : Section 2(41)Apart from a migrant worker recruited through a contractor, the defnition of ‘inter-state migrant worker’ includes a person who has come on his own from one State and obtained  employment in an establishment of another state.The definition covers workers drawing wages not exceeding eighteen thousand rupees per month or such higher amount as may be notified by the Central Government from time to time.EPF applicable to all establishments with 20 or more employees : First Schedule of the CodeThe Code makes Employees Provident Fund Scheme applicable to all establishments having 20 or more employees. Under the EPF Act, only those establishments listed in the schedule having 20 or more employees were brought under the EPF scheme.The contributions paid by the employer to the fund shall be ten per cent of the wages for the time being payable to each of the employees (whether employed by him directly or by or through a contactor), and the employee’s contribution shall be equal to the contribution payable by the employer in respect of him and may, if any employee so desires, be an amount exceeding ten per cent. of the wages, subject to the condition that the employer shall not be under an obligation to pay any contribution over and above his contribution payable under the Code (Section 16).Pre-deposit for appeal against EPF assessmentThe Code provides for appeal against an order passed by any authority in regard to determination and assessment of dues and levy of damages relating to Employees’ Provident Fund by an employer only after depositing with Social Security Organisation concerned, twenty-five per cent of the amount due from him as determined by the authority against whose order the appeal has been preferred;Employees State Insurance ESI is applicable to every establishment in which ten or more persons are employed other than a seasonal factory.Gig workers, unorganized sectors and plantation workers are also brought under the purview of ESI. GratuityGratuity is made applicable to  (a) every factory, mine, oilfield, plantation, port and railway company; and(b) every shop or establishment in which ten or more employees are employed, or were employed, on any day of the preceding twelve months; and such shops or establishments as may be notified by the appropriate Government from time to time. In the case of an employee employed on fixed term employment or a deceased employee, the employer shall pay gratuity on pro rata basis.Construction works of less than Rs 50 lakhs exempted The definition of ‘building and other construction works’ does not include works having a total cost of construction exceeding Rs 50 lakhs, employing more than a certain notified number of workers(Section 2(6)).Such constructions are therefore not subjected to the levy of cess for the social security of construction workers under Chapter VIII.Application of Aadhaar : Section 142Aadhaar number is made mandatory for availing benefits and services under the Code.Power to defer application of the Code in the event of disaster, pandemic etc : Section 144The Code empowers the Central Government to defer the application of the provisions of the Code for a period of three months in the event of a national disaster, pandemic or endemic.Power to exempt : Section 143The Code empowers the appropriate government to exempt any industrial establishment or class of industrial establishments from the provisions of the Code.Also Read : New Labour Laws Explained (Part 1): Industrial Relations Code 2020Click here to download the BillRead the Bill Next Storylast_img read more

Nighttime ionospheric D-region parameters from VLF phase and amplitude

0 Comments

first_imgNighttime ionospheric D region heights and electron densities are determined from an extensive set of VLF radio phase and amplitude observations. The D region parameters are characterized by the traditional H’ (height in kilometers) and beta ( sharpness in km(-1)) as used by Wait and by the U. S. Navy in their Earth-ionosphere waveguide programs. The VLF measurements were made with several frequencies in the range 10 kHz to 41 kHz on long, mainly all-sea paths, including Omega La Reunion and Omega Argentina to Dunedin, New Zealand, NAU (Puerto Rico) and NAA (Maine, USA) to Cambridge, UK, and NPM (Hawaii) to San Francisco. Because daytime VLF propagation on such paths is readily measured and predicted, the differences between night and day amplitudes and phases were measured and compared with calculations for a range of nighttime ionospheric parameters. This avoided the problem of uncertainties in the transmitter powers. In this way the height, H’, and the sharpness, b, when averaged over periods of several days, at least for the midlatitude D region near solar minimum, were found to be 85.1 +/- 0.4 km and 0.63 +/- 0.04 km(-1), respectively.last_img read more
