The project is located in Mohali, a satellite town of Chandigarh that is witnessing fast paced growth like most Indian cities. The brief of the client, a builder was to design a house for selling that is universal in character so that it is acceptable & appreciated by all kinds of end users ranging from a high earning professional to a wealthy farmer.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe overall concept was devised as a free plan with overlapping spaces to allow flexibility. However, the movement was choreographed so as to unfold the layers as one moves along the vertical axis of the house. The overall space is organized around a central courtyard that not only allows for light & ventilation but also serves as a means of introducing space in the interior that is excluded of the covered area regulated by building byelaws. The aim of the design i.e. to respond to universality has been adhered to by keeping in mind the principles of Vaastushastra (an ancient science that a number of users want to follow).Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjAlthough, the overall spirit of the space is strongly Indian in character with emphasis on transcendent spaces like the verandahs & covered terraces yet the architecture vocabulary is completely contemporary with a very universal detailing. The interiors were conceived as a space defined by planes turning & intersecting while in some cases carefully sliding over each other.Save this picture!First Floor PlanAnother, important aspect of the concept was the emphasis on ambiguous boundaries which is also manifested literally in peripheral boundary walls of the project.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe dwelling unit had a total of 5 bedrooms. The ground floor houses all the public areas & 2 bedrooms while the first floor has 3 bedrooms along with a central space that is integrated with the large front covered terrace.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjThe material palette of the house is very restrained & neutral in the interiors. However, strong & rough textures have been used in most of the landscaped areas including the central courtyard.Save this picture!© Purnesh Dev NikhanjProject gallerySee allShow lessPinterest Round Up of Our Favorite Nap Time RetreatsArticlesPop-up Café / PYESelected Projects Share Photographs “COPY” Projects Year:  2014 CopyAbout this officeCharged VoidsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSahibzada Ajit Singh NagarWoodHousesIndiaPublished on November 27, 2014Cite: “House in Mohali / Charged Voids” 27 Nov 2014.

Mining company urged to condemn death squad threats against community radio journalists

first_img Receive email alerts News October 7, 2020 Find out more Organisation June 12, 2020 Find out more Radio Victoria and the rural community that operates it, located in the northern department of Cabañas, have been the victim of threats and harassment for the past five years and it is time this stopped.A new wave of warnings and death threats were received by four of the community radio station’s journalists – Pablo Ayala, Oscar Beltrán, Manuel Navarrete and Marixela Ramos – in writing and by phone from 30 April to 2 May. Ramos and her 3-year-old daughter were threatened with immediate execution if the station did not change its editorial policies. The other three were told they would be killed if they had not left the department by 4 May.For nearly a decade, Radio Victoria has been the mouthpiece of local communities and environmental activists opposed to the mining operations of Vancouver-based Pacific Rim Mining Corp.The station has played a key role in providing the local population with information about the dangers that the mining poses to their health and even their survival.Despite the police protection that the station gets from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m., the threats have not let up. The station’s lawyer, Héctor Berríos, who has also been targeted, told Reporters Without Borders last January that an investigation into the threats by the prosecutor-general’s office had drawn a blank.“The death squads that claim to be sending these threatening messages have not been disarmed since the 1979-1992 civil war,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The need to step up the investigation is greater than ever because of the danger these threats pose. There also needs to be a broad-based campaign by El Salvador’s political class for the dismantling of these criminal rings, which enjoy complete impunity.”The press freedom organization added: “Surveillance of Radio Victoria’s installations is not enough. Its journalists and the other members of its staff need direct protection. And Pacific Rim’s international headquarters must publicly condemn this persecution of those living on the land it covets. We await its statement.”Covering environment dangers is very risky for journalists both in El Salvador and elsewhere in Central America. Spanish husband-and-wife journalists Paco Gómez Nadal and Pilar Chato were deported from Panama on 28 February for taking up the cause indigenous groups that are campaigning against mining projects. The persecution of community radio stations Radio Faluma Bimetu (Radio Coco Dulce) and La Voz de Zacate Grande in Honduras is largely due to their taking the side of the local rural population in land disputes.

Solas OLED Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Samsung in Germany

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Facebook WhatsApp TAGS  DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 23, 2021– The following is a statement from Solas OLED Ltd. Solas OLED Ltd. (“Solas”), an Irish company that specializes in patented OLED technologies that it licenses to consumer electronics manufacturers, has announced that it has today filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung Electronics GmbH (“Samsung”) with the Düsseldorf District Court in Germany. The Solas patent portfolio covers all critical areas of OLED structures, display design and architecture, and driver circuitry. Solas’ patents are fundamental to active-matrix technologies and are universally required for AMOLEDs to function; and, certain of Solas’ inventions are used prolifically by Samsung in various devices, e.g., the screens in tablets, phones, and watches. Solas also has cases pending against Samsung before the International Trade Commission (seeking to address Samsung’s import into the U.S. of devices infringing Solas’ patents) and before the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas (for patent infringement and scheduled for trial beginning March 1, 2021). Aoife Butler, General Counsel of Solas, commented: “We take the research of inventors very seriously; and, enforcing our patent rights is the only way to acknowledge and protect the time and effort inventors devote to their craft to develop new technologies that benefit and enhance all our lives. Filing a lawsuit is never an easy decision; however, Samsung continues to market OLED products, including tablets, watches, and phones that infringe Solas’ patents; and, as a result, Solas has no choice but to stand up for its rights. Samsung does not permit others to use its patent rights without paying for them, and it is safe to assume Samsung would not permit consumers to take its phones and watches without paying for them, so it defies logic that Samsung thinks it acceptable to misappropriate the patent rights of others. LG Display Co. recently licensed Solas’ patent portfolio, allowing it to legally use Solas’ technology in its TVs, phones, tablets, and watches. Samsung should either do the same or refrain from using Solas’ technology in its products.” About Solas OLED Ltd. Solas OLED Ltd. (“Solas”) is an Irish OLED technology licensing company based in Dublin, Ireland. Established in 2016, Solas has assembled one of the world’s largest, most important and comprehensive patent portfolios in the OLED space. From the smallest OLED watch to the largest OLED TV, Solas’ patent portfolio is fundamental to the design, circuitry and manufacturing of OLED displays.

Donagh Kelly confirmed as guest speaker for Chairde le Cheile Gala Ball

first_img Google+ Donagh Kelly confirmed as guest speaker for Chairde le Cheile Gala Ball Publicans in Republic watching closely as North reopens further Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic Pinterest Facebook Arranmore progress and potential flagged as population grows Twitter News WhatsApp Twitter Facebookcenter_img Google+ Leading Donegal businessman, Donagh Kelly, will be the guest speaker at next month’s Cairde le Cheile Gala Ball which will be held in conjunction with North West Special Olympics in Letterkenny.The Frosses native is the CEO of KN Circet. His company is the biggest telecoms contractor in Europe and employs around 3,500 worldwide. Donagh Kelly is also a highly talented rally driver and won both the off-road and Irish Tarmac Championships in 2015. He secured a remarkable five successive West Cork Rally titles (2014-2018) and his most recent victory came in April, 2019 when he won the Monaghan Four Seasons Rally.Looking ahead to the gala ball which takes place in the Mount Errigal Hotel, on Saturday, February 15th, Cairde le Cheile Manager, Rosaleen Gallagher, is planning for an attendance of around 400.“We are delighted that Donagh Kelly has accepted our invitation to be the guest speaker at our gala ball,” Rosaleen said.“We only hold events like this every so often and it’s great when someone of the calibre of Donagh Kelly who is so well known and so highly regarded is involved. We are expecting between 350 and 400 to attend. Tickets for the ball are priced at €60, with tables of ten costing €600,” she added.Cairde le Cheile was set up in 2003 and born out of Special Olympics with a vision to provide permanent services for people with disability in Donegal. Cairde Le Cheile Committee Company Limited by Guarantee (GLC) was formed and in order to be inclusive, directors were nominated from Special Olympics, People with Disability Ireland, Donegal County Council, Letterkenny Town Council, Donegal Sports Partnership, Pramerica and the HSE. “The remit of our organisation is to provide sporting, social and employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Donegal. The remit has since been extended to include young people and senior citizens,” the Cairde le Cheile manager explained.“The facilities at our base at St Conal’s include a restaurant, the Poppyseed Bakery & Café which is open to the public and run separately from Cairde le Cheile and our sports hall. An extensive refurbishment was carried out last year and has made a massive difference to the centre. It is now fully accessible and includes meeting rooms, a board room, and function and general purpose room and social area. All are now fully equipped with overhead projectors and laptops. We also have an office and disabled toilet facilities available.”The manager continued: “We also run a small canteen, The Fern, within St Conal’s Hospital. This canteen was previously run by the HSE, and was being closed. Cairde le Cheile took over the running of the project to ensure that the service users using the canteen continued to have a service. An outreach shop to the psychiatric unit at Letterkenny University Hospital is also provided for one hour each day.”“The Fern Café employs people with disabilities under the Supported Employment Scheme. There are also people working with us, employed under the TUS Scheme administered by DLDC and people under CE (Community Employment) Scheme. Cairde le Cheile was successful in gaining funding for three full-time employees – a facilities manager an administrator and a caretaker through Community Services Programme (CSP Pobal). Special Olympics use the sports hall on Saturday mornings, and Wednesday evenings. “Various organisations that provide services to people with disabilities and community groups avail of the premises on a weekly basis. These include Slimming World, Pilate groups, Yoga groups, the Park Run, and Cultural groups, HSE, Sports Partnership and the Irish Heart Foundation. Church services are also held there. Other community groups are welcome, especially groups who cater for disabilities or have mixed groups which include disabilities,” Rosaleen said.Cairde Le Cheile has come a long way since 2003, according to the manager. In the past year alone footfall using our facilities has increased to approximately 26,000.“Vital funding from the, DLDC, The Leader Programme, The Donegal County, HSE, the Community Services Programme (Pobal) and other donations from various community events have enabled the enhancement and management of the building and greatly improved our facilities, which has allowed us to become more sustainable and strive to offer greater opportunities for people with disabilities and also for the wider community.“Going forward, it is our vision to develop and provide courses for people with disabilities and their families, and also the wider community that will enhance their lives,” she said.“We are planning to sound-proof the sports hall which will allow various group activities to take place at the same time without sound interruption. We are also planning to refurbish and upgrade the front entrance of the building by installing automatic doors and creating more space for access to our existing lift. This would be an extremely beneficial and cost-effective venture that would create further sustainability of our facilities. The funds raised through the next month’s gala ball will help us greatly with our current plans,” Rosaleen added.
