This is our second project for this client. The first was an extensive renovation, addition, outbuildings, and major landscape design for their previous home in a rural setting. Deciding to move into the city, our client purchased an expansive lot with distant views of Lake Superior through the trees in the fall and winter.Save this picture!© Corey GafferSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Corey GafferThe house is composed of three structures connected by glazed hallways which define two distinctive yet visually connected courtyards. One courtyard is oriented toward the lake and includes a fireplace that helps extend the use of the space into late fall and early spring. The second courtyard is tucked into the graduated slope of the hill, creating a sunken entry court that offers protection from cold easterly winds that regularly blow off of the lake. The distinctive microclimates of each courtyard provide ample opportunities for spending time outdoors despite the dynamic weather of the region.Save this picture!© Corey GafferFrom the street, two focal points are visible through the glazed connecting elements: the fireplace of the interior courtyard and a timber frame pavilion set within the backyard beyond the house. These two focal points are also visible from the opposite end of the site, which is bounded by a cross-city pedestrian and bike trail. This sense of transparency is equally apparent from the interior, with view corridors bisecting the house in both longitudinal and transverse directions.Save this picture!North ElevationsLarge window openings frame multiple views, and square ventilating units and clerestories make for a very functional combination of passive and active ventilation, ensuring very healthy air quality throughout the year. The deep, slender eaves of the flat roofs serve the dual function of controlling light levels and passive heat gain in the summer, while also protecting the painted plywood siding from rain and snow. The clerestory light boxes playfully draw additional light into the center of the house.Save this picture!© Corey GafferSet within the backyard is a wood pegged timber frame pavilion with a 1/4” thick paper-resin composite roof. The pavilion was handmade by the client’s husband years before in a folk school timber framing class but was never assembled at their previous home. The timbers were stored and somewhat forgotten until the realization that this pavilion would make for an appropriate counterpoint to the house. The discovery and reemergence of this structure was a thrill to the client and architect alike, and this summer the client’s daughter was married under the cover of the pavilion.Save this picture!© Corey GafferProject gallerySee allShow lessManuel Zornoza of LATITUDE: “We Were Fascinated by this Idea – How do You Build a Ci…InterviewsInternational Design Competition for Landscape of Columnar Jointing area, Jeju, Sout…Call for Submissions Share Landscape Architect: Architects: Salmela Architect Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses 2017 Meyer Borgman Johnson Photographs CopyAbout this officeSalmela ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationDuluthUnited StatesPublished on August 22, 2018Cite: “Deloia / Salmela Architect” 22 Aug 2018.

The Court said that a Governor’s power is not intended to destabilise or displace a democratically elected government accountable to the legislative assembly and collectively responsible to it. It observed that a Governor, being an appointee of the President, does not represent either a political ideology or a political view, and he/she ought not to exercise his authority in aid of a political dispensation.The Court also held that Governor is not denuded of the power to order a floor test where on the basis of the material available to the Governor it becomes evident that the issue as to whether the government commands the confidence of the house requires to be assessed on the basis of a floor test. However, the exercise of the power to call for a trust vote must be guided by the over-arching consideration that the formation of satisfaction by the Governor is not based on extraneous considerations, the bench said.”In discharging this crucial role, it is necessary that the Governor bear in mind that the purpose underlying the entrustment of the authority to require a trust vote is not to displace duly elected governments but to intervene with caution when the circumstances which are drawn to the attention of the Governor indicate a loss of majority”, the Court added. The bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and Hemant Gupta made following important observations in this regard: Governor Expected To Discharge Role Of A Constitutional Statesman The Governor is an appointee of the President but does not represent either a political ideology or a political view. The Governor is expected to discharge the role of a constitutional statesman. The authority of the Governor is not one to be exercised in aid of a political dispensation which considers an elected government of the day to be a political opponent. The precise reason underlying the entrustment of the authority to the Governor is the ability to stand above political conflicts and with the experience of statesmanship, to wheel the authority in a manner which sub-serves and does not detract from the strength and resilience of democratically elected legislatures and the governments in the states who are accountable to them. To act contrary to this mandate would result in the realisation of the worst fears of the constitutional framers who were cognisant that the office of the Governor could potentially derail democratically elected governments but nonetheless placed trust in future generations to ensure that government of the people, by the people and for the people would not be denuded by those who were designed to act as its sentinels. Governor’s Orders Not Immune From Judicial Review The powers which are entrusted to constitutional functionaries are not beyond the pale of judicial review. Where the exercise of the discretion by the Governor to call a floor test is challenged before the court, it is not immune from judicial review. The court is entitled to determine whether in calling for the floor test, the Governor did so on the basis of objective material and reasons which were relevant and germane to the exercise of the power. The exercise of such a power is not intended to destabilise or displace a democratically elected government accountable to the legislative assembly and collectively responsible to it. The exercise of the power to call for a trust vote must be guided by the over-arching consideration that the formation of satisfaction by the Governor is not based on extraneous considerationGovernor Not To Favour Any Political Party In Directing Trust VoteThe idea underlying the trust vote in the ultimate analysis, is to uphold the political accountability of the elected government to the state legislature. Assertion of accountability is a mirror image of the collective responsibility of the government to the legislature. It is important to note that in directing a trust vote, the Governor does not favour a particular political party. It is inevitable that the specific timing of a trust vote may tilt the balance towards the party possessing a majority at the time the trust vote is directed. All political parties are equally at risk of losing the support of their elected legislators, just as the  legislators are at risk of losing the vote of the electorate. This is how the system of parliamentary governance operates.Governor To Act With Circumspection While Demanding A Trust VoteIn exercising the constitutional authority to demand a trust vote, the Governor must do so with circumspection in a manner that ensures that the authority of the House to determine the existence or loss of confidence in the government is not undermined. Absent exigent and compelling circumstances, there is no reason for the Governor to prevent the ordinary legislative process of a no confidence motion from running its due course.Governor can seek floor test on reasonable belief that the govt has lost confidence While the Court observed that the power to summon and prorogue the house as per Article 174 has to be exercised by the Governor as per the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers, it added that the Governor can call for floor test when there are reasonable grounds to believe that the government has lost the confidence of the house. “The power under Article 174 of the Constitution to summon the House and to prorogue it is one which is exercised by the Governor on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers. But in a situation where the Governor has reasons to believe that the Council of Ministers headed by the Chief Minister has lost the confidence of the House, constitutional propriety requires that the issue be resolved by calling for a floor test. The Governor in calling for a floor test cannot be construed to have acted beyond the bounds of constitutional authority”.Case DetailsTitle : Shivraj Singh Chouhan v Speaker, Madhya Pradesh Legislative AssemblyCoram : Justices D Y Chandrachud and Hemant GuptaAppearances : Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi (for petitioner), Senior Adv Kapil Sibal (for Kamal Nath), Senior Adv Dr A M Singhvi (for Speaker), Sr Adv Vivek Tankha (for MP Government), Solicitor General Tushar Mehta (for MP Governor).Click here to download judgmentRead Judgment Next Storylast_img read more

The arrest is in connection with the Sushant Singh Rajput death case.On Tuesday, the Sessions Court extended Rhea Chakraborty’s judicial custody till October 6. She was arrested in the case by NCB on September 8 and remanded to 14 day judicial custody on the same day.Rhea and Showik’s lawyer Advocate Satish Maneshinde said their bail applications will come up for hearing on Wednesday before a bench presided over by Justice Sarang Kotwal.On September 11, Sessions Court had rejected the bail applications filed by accused Rhea Chakraborty, Showik Chakraborty, Zaid Vilatra, Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Sawant and Abdel Parihar.While rejecting Rhea and Showik’s bail, Judge GB Gurao had observed-“According to the prosecution, the accused has taken the names of other persons. The investigation in respect of those persons is in process. If the accused is released on bail then he/she will alert those persons and they will destroy the evidence. There is the possibility of tampering of evidence. As discussed above considering the allegations against the accused there is a bar to release the accused on bail under section 37 of NDPS Act 1985. The investigation is at preliminary stage and if the accused is released on bail then she will tamper the prosecution evidence. Hence, in such a circumstance I find that the applicant/accused is not entitled for bail.”According to NCB, Showik Chakraborty revealed that he used to facilitate the delivery to arrange drugs through accused Abdel Parihar by accused Kaizan Ebrahim and accused Zaid. These deliveries used to be received by aides of Late Sushant Singh Rajput and every delivery and payment was in knowledge of accused Rhea Chakraborty and even sometimes payments and choice of drug was confirmed from accused Rhea Chakraborty.It is also NCB’s case that during his statement, accused Samuel Miranda disclosed that he used to procure drugs on the direction of Sushant Singh Rajput and accused Rhea Chakraborty and disclosed that financial matter in this regard were being dealt by accused Rhea Chakraborty and Late Sushant Singh Rajput. Moreover, accused Dipesh Sawant (Sushant’s house help) disclosed that he used to receive drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput on his directions and on several occasions accused Rhea Chakraborty also instructed him.Thereafter, Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Sawant, and Abdel Parihar, approached the high court, seeking bail. Interestingly, the High Court on September 18, while adjourning the hearing in bail applications observed that the matter will be heard extensively as Narcotics Control Bureau’s case is an unusual one and an important question of law is involved “which will not just affect this case but all other cases of past and future.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The bench observed that since the police officers has searched her house, seized her laptop and phone and recorded her statement, it means Jacob has made herself available for investigation.Since Nikita Jacob will have to ultimately approach the Delhi Courts for bail after three weeks, the bench said that it was not commenting anything on the merits of the case.According to the Delhi police, climate change activist Disha Ravi, along with Jacob and Beed engineer Shantanu Muluk, created the “toolkit” related to the farmers’ agitation which was shared by activist Greta Thunberg. Ravi is in custody, while Muluk was granted 10-day transit anticipatory bail by the Aurangabad Bench of the Bombay High Court, on Monday. The court had reserved its order on Jacob’s transit bail yesterday, after hearing arguments advance by Jacob’s defence and Delhi Police. Senior Advocate Mihir Desai, who appeared for Jacob, said the young woman “is a practicing lawyer for the last six-seven year, an environmental enthusiast who knows her duties.” He submitted that Jacob was only moved by the farmers protesting against controversial farm laws. Desai argued that the “tool kit” became a “big issue” only because Greta Thunberg shared it. “Now the tool kit was allegedly prepared by a number of people…The tool kit does not talk about violence, doesn’t talk about taking over Red Fort.”He argued that while running campaigns, groups take the support of various people. “According to them, one person out of the fifty [on the Wats App group] is a Khalistani. He doesn’t belong to a banned organization he belongs to an organisation called Poetic Justice [Foundation]… The name poetic justice doesn’t suggest someone is talking about Khalistan.He urged the court to protect Jacob from being arrested for 4 weeks, to approach an appropriate court in Delhi. “She apprehended arrest, which has been proved by the fact that they procured a non-bailable warrant against her.”Advocate Hiten Venegavkar, appearing on behalf of the Delhi Police, took preliminary objection to the plea, arguing against its admissibility. He said that there was no provision in the CrPC to grant transit anticipatory bail. The court said that this was not the stage to go into the merits of the case, but the allegations against Jacob would need to be recorded. Venegavkar then elaborated on the allegations against Jacob. “Nearly 400 people, including policemen, were injured after the violence at the Red Fort, on January 26. I’ll explain the chorology.”The PM was giving his independence speech.  I’ll explain the chronology “On 27th November 2020, farmers began protesting against the farm laws. On December 6, 2020 a Wats App ground was created by Disha Ravi, who was arrested last week. In the last week of December or 1st week of January, the tool kit was created and uploaded on Google Drive. The tool kit clearly shows that the creatorship and authorship lies with this Disha Ravi, and Jacob, along with one or two persons which I will not name at this stage but who are directly connected with Khalistaan .. who are the creators and authors of this.”Venegavkar added that the tool kit was created much before riot, narrating step by step what is to be done.He then said that Jacob’s statement was recorded in her house, on February 11. But she absconded the very next day. Desai said that all the required electronic gadgets were seized by the police.  In her plea filed through advocate Sanjukta Dey, Jacob says she volunteered in an environmental movement called “Extinction Rebellion,” which helps to create awareness about environmental issues and create a positive change in the world today through non-violent means.”The present applicant has no religious, political and/ or financial motive or agenda for researching, discussing, editing and circulating communication packs/ toolkits for raising awareness let alone to incite violence riots and/or cause other physical harms,” the petition states.According to the police, the “toolkit” has a particular section that mentions “digital strike-through hashtags on or before January 26, tweetstorms on January 23 onwards, physical action on January 26 and watch-out or join farmers march into Delhi and back to borders”.The Cyber Cell of the Delhi Police had registered an FIR on February 4 against unnamed persons over the ‘tool kit’ shared by Thunberg. The case was registered on charges of criminal conspiracy, sedition, and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code.Click here to read/download the orderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgWFTS(POLK COUNTY, Fla.) — A 16-year-old Florida boy is suspected of beating his friend to death with a baseball bat, authorities said, alleging that the teen was jealous of his friend’s relationship with a girl.Police say the suspect persuaded friend Giovanni Diaz, 15, to go into a wooded area Monday afternoon, where the teen “viciously beat and killed Giovanni with a baseball bat,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said at a news conference Monday. He hit Giovanni at least nine times, Judd added.As the suspect emerged from the woods, authorities say he told a witness, “I hit my friend with a baseball bat,” according to Sheriff Judd.The witness told the teen to go home and call 911, Judd said. The suspect did so, allegedly confessing to hitting his friend with the bat, Judd said. After he dialed 911, police say the teen agave an “elaborate” defense about protecting himself, which Sheriff Judd called a lie.The teen allegedly told a responding officer that he had “wailed” on his friend with a bat, Judd said, and the suspect was taken into custody.At a news conference today, Judd called the beating premeditated; he said Giovanni had “relations” with a girl the suspect liked and “that made him mad.”Police say the suspect told someone several days ago, “I wonder what it’s like to murder someone,” Judd said today.The sheriff has released the suspect’s name but ABC News is not naming him because he is a minor.The suspect is home-schooled while Giovanni, an eighth-grader, attended a middle school, but both lived in the same community, Judd said. The “suspect referred to them as friends,” Judd said, adding that they had known each other for a long time.The alleged victim “has absolutely no previous run-ins with the law,” Judd said, but the suspect was charged two years ago with two counts of battery for allegedly battering two people, including Giovanni.The suspect also was charged with domestic battery last year for allegedly battering his father, Judd said.The suspect has been charged with one count of first-degree murder and one count of possession of marijuana. Police are requesting that he be tried as an adult; the State Attorney’s Office will make that decision at a later time, Judd said. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
