Set atop a hilly site in an established North Toronto neighborhood and surrounded by traditional homes, the project is the result of a mixed brief from a professional couple keen on building a family home.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanWhile one partner is drawn to contemporary design, the other prefers traditional. This dichotomy surfaces throughout the design and construction process, providing numerous challenges and opportunities for creative solutions.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThis same tension is often visible in the market place, especially within the ubiquitous developer home, where modern living, open-concept interiors, and traditional architectural expression are at odds with each other. The Courtyard House sets forth a viable alternative to the standard developer home. It draws from standard construction methods, material palettes and vernacular domestic elements to create a contemporary architectural expression that is architecturally coherent.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanThe steep front grade of the property proved a challenge in siting the house. In an effort to maintain the height of the building relative to its neighbors, the second floor is merged into the roof form to create a dormer expression. On the interior, bedroom spaces feature sloped and carved ceilings that embrace the exterior form.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanSinking the main level of the house into the ground allows for the main entry to be integrated into the landscape, and the opportunity to build a beautiful front stair out of large, contemporary stone slabs. Save this picture!Section 1Large operable windows and sliding doors encourage natural ventilation, passive cooling and lessen the cooling load of the overall house, while providing ample natural light. The open plan allows the family to spread out, while custom millwork pieces create distinct spaces within the whole. The large windows and courtyard configuration allow the house to be experienced from many different angles, both inside and out.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanSet amongst large, traditional homes in an established neighborhood, the Courtyard House creatively integrates and composes traditional materials such as tumbled brick, cedar shingles, and wood siding into a formal language that is reflective of its open and contemporary interiors while respecting the visual cadence (roof lines, address, driveway, etc.) of the neighborhood.  Save this picture!© Tom ArbanThe architectural expression of the Courtyard House sets forth a viable alternative to the standard developer home. It draws from standard wood-frame construction methods, traditional material palettes and vernacular forms to create a contemporary architectural expression that is coherent. Save this picture!© Tom ArbanUnlike its neighboring buildings, also situated on large plots, the shallow floor plate of the house takes advantage of the wide lot. The traditional components and layout of the house are redistributed and reoriented around a central courtyard which capitalizes on the unique lot.Save this picture!© Tom ArbanTherefore, a hybrid approach is suggested – instead of a strong modern aesthetic (flat roof, white walls, etc.), one that embraces traditional materials and construction with the demands of modern living is suggested. Instead of alienating its neighbors, the house respects and engages them.Project gallerySee allShow lessPlayHouse / Street Monkey Architects + BjerkingSelected ProjectsHow Supercomputers are Shaping the Future of our CitiesArchitecture News Share Courtyard House / Studio JCI Year:  Architects: Studio JCI Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeStudio JCIOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoWoodHousesCanadaPublished on March 29, 2015Cite: “Courtyard House / Studio JCI ” 28 Mar 2015.

  • Black and Brown unity in Alabama

    first_imgBlack and Brown unity at Voting Rights March, Shelby County, Ala.WW photo: Minnie Bruce PrattColumbiana and Gadsden, Ala.“Forward ever, backward never! Not one step back!” shouted over 100 people in Columbiana, Ala., on the morning of June 20 at the first annual march for restoration of voting rights. The Alabama NAACP and the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice called the action.The Black and Brown unity crowd was protesting the U.S. Supreme Court strike-down of part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act last year, as well as the growing right-wing assault on voting access in the U.S. Speakers made clear these attacks are racist in intent. One said, “The Klan doesn’t wear white robes anymore. They wear black robes and they are in the courthouse.”Columbiana is the county seat of rural Shelby County, now a “white-flight” suburb of Birmingham complete with McMansions, horse farms and up-scale housing developments with names like “Old Ivy.”Its all-white Board of County Commissioners won the suit to gut the Voting Rights Act by removing Section 4, which had mandated that states with a history of racist discrimination in voting must have any voting law change OKd by the federal government.Marchers saw the attack on voting rights as an attempt to wipe out hard-won victories of the Black Civil Rights Movement, known worldwide through the Selma struggle, only 60 miles to the south.NAACP Shelby County President Rev. Kenneth Dukes had stated previously: “Shelby County has become the new Selma. Not because of the brutality. But because we’re still here fighting for the same things, fighting the same battle.” Dukes is a bus driver for the Montevallo school district.Ben Monterrosa, of the California-based, Latino/a-focused Mi Familia Vota, thanked all those who had “fought the fight” for many years for voter rights. He stressed: “We can not depend on the courts or elected officials — but on ourselves. Strength in unity!” Other speakers emphasized the importance of wresting back local community control of decisions about education, health care and jobs.As the march wound through the tiny town to the courthouse on a street lined with police cars, we sang civil rights protest songs updated to “Ain’t gonna let the Supreme Court turn us around” and “We shall overcome — today.” Marchers included American Federation of Government Employees members; the Montgomery Mu Nu alumni chapter of the traditionally Black men’s fraternity Omega Psi Phi; representatives from the traditionally Black Alabama Education Association; NAACP Women in Network members; and officers from Birmingham, Calera, Jemison, Montevallo, Troy and elsewhere.ICE out of Alabama!That afternoon, 90 miles north in Gadsden, over 50 people protested in front of the Etowah County Jail/ICE Detention Center. The demand was “No more cages in Alabama!” The county has a contract with U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement to jail more than 300 men detained because of their immigration status.The protest, “Chant down the walls,” was part of a series of concerts and demonstrations at detention centers begun in Los Angeles by the National Day Laborer Organizing Network. On the parking lot in front of the jail, Los Jornaleros del Norte (Day Laborers of the North), part of NDLON, played traditional Mexican ballads about worker struggles as well as spirit-lifting salsa.On this blazing hot afternoon, protesters sang and called out to the incarcerated men in spite of the phalanx of police in front of the fortress-like building. Caroline Earhart, a member of the Huntsville Visitation Committee, held up a sign with the names of those who are now her friends inside the jail, and was greeted by thank-you signs in one high-up window: “Caroline, thank you from Robelto.”The men have come from all over the world and all over the U.S.; some have been jailed for many years. At the Detention Center they live in extreme social isolation, in conditions among the worst in the U.S., including no access to exercise facilities, recreation or educational programs, according to Detention Watch Network. In addition to DWN, groups participating were the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice, Southerners on New Ground and Birmingham Quaker meeting members. The Adelante Worker Center near Birmingham called the protest.Kenyan citizen and former Etowah detainee Sylvester Owino spoke at the rally, saying: “I spent nine years in immigration detention before finally winning my release in March. I am coming back to Alabama to let other detainees know that they are not alone, and we all must keep fighting. I also want the public to know more about the abuses that go on inside the Etowah Detention Center and the way those of us caught up in the immigration detention system are treated as less than human.”As recently as 2013, Gadsden was counted as one of the 10 poorest cities in the U.S., but the County Jail/Detention Center stands out on the aging street as impressively new and modern.The name of the street where the jail was built underlines how racism buttresses the U.S. prison system, both governmental and for-profit. The Etowah Detention Center is located on Forrest Avenue — named for Nathan Bedford Forrest, founder of the white supremacist Ku Klux Klan after the U.S. Civil War.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Each year, $3–5 billion in delinquent real estate taxes are offered for public sale. In a tax-sale state, delinquent taxes can be sold as quickly as within six months.Even in an upswing market, these are serious numbers, and investors must be vigilant to protect their assets. Delinquent and sold reporting is best monitored with real-time, accurate, and detailed information regarding delinquent and sold tax liabilities.First and foremost, you must have a firm grasp of the state-specific tax foreclosure and sale regulations. An investor must discern if the delinquent asset is facing a tax sale or a tax deed sale. In a tax-sale state, the asset can go to sale anywhere between six months to a year, and there is typically a redemption period for the owner before the loss of the property once taxes have been sold. A tax-deed state is a bit more generous and can take about three years, but they do not offer a redemption period once the property has been sold. Every state has its own specific rules, and the 50 states are comprised of over 26,000 taxing agencies. Risk is real but can be minimized with the expertise and knowledgeable assistance of a professional property tax service firm. It is imperative that any tax-service provider report the next critical date and actions that can be taken. There can be multiple payoff amounts, monthly penalty and interest charges, and loss-of-property dates. A strong and knowledgeable provider can assist with redemption and payments as well as third-party buyer negotiations.Strong portfolio management is also key to comprehending risk and exposure to unpaid taxes. Once again, seek guidance from the experts. With the right real estate tax provider, customer service and portfolio management will be of utmost importance. Find a company that will provide personalized and flexible service to fit your portfolio. Current as well as delinquent and sold taxes must be monitored daily. At a minimum, it is advisable to implement a tax-status update process and have comprehensive reporting available on a timely basis. Be certain that payment support is available at all levels to meet deadlines and deter additional penalties.

  • “Whether ‘Advocate On Record’ Includes Sole Proprietary Firm?” Supreme Court Leaves The Question To SC Rule Making Authority

K. Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari and Hrishikesh Roy was considering a suo motu writ petition on whether “Advocate on Record includes a proprietary firm”. “Whether an AOR can have his entry in the AOR register in the form of his style of carrying on his profession: Instead of just “Name” as “Name”, Sole Proprietor, Law Chambers of “Name”?”, was the question framed.”The (Supreme Court) Rules being sacrosanct, we would not like to interfere with the same in the present proceeding’, said the bench.However, on the individual facts of the particular case of petitioner-AOR Siddharth Murarka, the bench was of the view that writing “Law Chambers of Siddharth Murarka, Sole Proprietor Siddharth Rajkumar Murarka, Advocate on Record, Supreme Court of India AOR NO.2151, M: 9324175774/1” is a permissible style of putting on the letter head and in the Vakalatnamas. “Thus, if said Vakalatnamas are filed they will be treated as a Vakalatnama of Mr. Siddharth Rajkumar Murarka, who is an Advocate on Record”, it recorded.The bench noted that all that the petitioner sought to state in his letter head and while filing the Vakalatnama is that “Law Chambers of Siddharth Murarka sole proprietor Siddharth Rajkumar Murarka” with his registration number given. The plea of the petitioner was based on doing similar filing in different High Courts but not being permitted to do so in Supreme Court which, he claimed, put him at a disadvantage against partnership firms since there is no impediment in the constitution of a partnership firm of Advocates where two or more Advocates on Record may constitute a firm.”The expression “Law Chambers” has a history from England and also in India because we borrowed a considerable jurisprudence from England where it is a reference to a particular lawyer in whose chambers people may be working and carrying on the legal practice. It appears that this is the style Mr. Murarka seeks to adopt by reference to the Law Chamber with his name following suit”, appreciated the bench. The Court opined that effectively this style only records the practice of the chamber which is a sole proprietorship of Mr.Siddharth Murarka, Mr. Siddharth Rajkumar Murarka being the person who is registered as an Advocate on Record with the Supreme Court.Mr. Kailash Vasdev, senior counsel, who is the Vice-President of the Supreme Court Bar Association and a former Advocate on Record, assisted the bench as Amicus Curiae, taking the court through the history of how the Supreme Court Rules were formulated. In this behalf he has emphasized that the Supreme Court of India on being established under Article 124 of the Constitution of India framed Rules in exercise of powers conferred by Article 145 of the Constitution. These Rules owe their history to the Federal Court Act, 1941 in terms of the Rules there under being formulated in exercise of powers by Section 214 of the Government of India Act, 1935 and Section 3 of the Federal Court Act, 1941. He emphasized that the expression used in the Rules historically and now is “person” or “agent”. Similarly, the authorization is referred to “him”.It was, however, submitted that under Order IV Rule 15 to 29 and Rule 31(originally), the enrolment of Advocate on Record has been dealt with and still do so in the amended form under the 2013 Rules.The bench noted Rules 22 and 23 in Order 4 of the 2013 Rules- Rule 22 stipulate that Two or more advocates on record may enter into a partnership with each other, and any partner may act in the name of the partnership provided that the partnership is registered with the Registrar, and 23 requires that “Two or more advocates not being senior advocates or advocates on record, may enter into partnership and anyone of them may appear in any cause or matter before the Court in the name o f the partnership”In addition to Rules 22 and 23, reference was made to Rule 13(1) of Order IV ‘Advocates’ of the 2013 Rules- “An advocate-on-record or a firm of advocates may employ one or more clerks to attend the registry for presenting or receiving any papers on behalf of the said advocate or firm of advocates…””What emerges is that there can be an Advocate on Record or a firm of Advocates on Record…The aforesaid appears to be grievance of the petitioner who submits that if the partnership firm can be registered and operate he should be permitted to do as a sole proprietor.”, observed the bench.Although allowing the plea of Mr. Murarka on the individual facts of the his case, the bench voiced that it is in agreement with the submission of the Amicus Curiae that if different styles of writing names are to be permitted for Advocates on Record, that can only by an exercise to amend the Rules.”He further submits that he says so as the legal profession is not a business but a profession and this submission takes its roots from that aspect. Thus, insofar as the larger issue is concerned, we leave it to the Rule making authorities to examine whether they would like to expand the registration of Advocates on Record permitting persons to carry on the profession in any sole proprietorship firms, styles or name. The Rules being sacrosanct, we would not like to interfere with the same in the present proceeding”, ordered the bench.Courtroom Exchange”Rules permit partnership firms to have a firm name. So it is not prohibited. The names of the firms would be registered with the Registrar. So it is only mandatory to register. If a firm name can be registered, why not my name? It is not a business name but a sole proprietorship name?”, asked Justice Maheshwari.”A person can carry on his profession in any style he wants. If I am ‘Kaul Associates’, what difference does it make? The AOR is still Siddharth Murarka and no-one else. Why can he not display his name as AOR so and so? Is there a problem in registering a proprietorship if his clientage has developed in a particular manner?”, asked Justice Kaul.”There is no contemplation in the Rules whatsoever of a proprietorship. The reason is that it is a trading name, it can be used for any purpose. Mr. Murarka is saying that his corporate clients want representation in this manner. So he is using his AOR position in a trading capacity…A trade-name is not allowed because you can’t commercialise the practice. That is why everywhere there is a reference to an individual advocate”, advanced Mr. Vasdev.”If you introduce trade names, then the other provisions of the Rules regarding the filing of accounts, complaints etc are also affected”, said Mr. Vasdev.”It is a settled position that sole proprietorship is not the legal entity but the proprietor is the legal entity. There should be no problem in writing ‘Law Chambers of Siddharth Murarka’. He can be sued in his own name”, observed Justice Kaul.”It makes a difference. In London, the solicitors are permitted the practice as Law Chambers. Mr. Murarka is trying to borrow from a system he does not belong to. He can only follow the Rules. He cannot do anything else, except being Siddharth Murarka. If he does anything else, the Rules will be contravened. Unless the rules are amended…”, replied Mr. Vasdev,”This is a very terminological interpretation of the Rules. We can recommend amendment of the Rules, that a particular style of writing proprietorship firm should be permitted with the AOR name displayed. We can propose this for the analysis by the authority”, ventured Justice Kaul.Mr. Vasdev suggested that the issue be referred to a committee headed by the Chief Justice of India in view of the rule-making power under Article 145.Case: IN RE: ADVOCATE ON RECORD INCLUDES A PROPRIETARY FIRM ETC.Coram: Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari and HrishikeshCitation: LL 2021 SC 37Click here to Download/Read OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

At least 19,701 people in the U.S. have died, the highest out of any country.Across the globe, at least 102,800 people have died from the coronavirus.Worldwide, more than 1.7 million people have been diagnosed since the virus emerged in China in December.

There is not yet a commitment from the Treasury at this time regarding people who are waiting on paper checks, which is expected to take longer to disburse.The Treasury will also launch a new app next week called “Get My Payment” to expedite the delivery of funds for filers who did not receive their refund electronically.12:17 p.m.: US nears Italy for most confirmed deathsThe United States is nearing Italy to become the country with the most confirmed deaths.There are at least 18,860 deaths in the U.S. and at least 19,468 in Italy, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University and Italy’s Civil Protection Agency.12:02 p.m.: Death toll in New York reaches 8,627, Cuomo pushes back on mayor’s school closureThere were 783 deaths in New York in the last 24 hours, putting the total number of people who have died at 8,627, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a press conference.Cuomo continued to say that New York is flattening the curve, though he said the numbers were still stark.“The [death toll] is somewhat stabilizing, but it is stabilizing at a horrific rate,” he said. “These are just incredible numbers, depicting incredible loss and pain.”He also spoke about reopening the state, saying the decision was both a public health and economic decision.The governor said he will put together a team to look at what happened in Wuhan, China, which was at one point the epicenter, when the city reopened.Cuomo also pushed back on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announcement earlier this morning that the city’s public schools would close for the remainder of the year. Cuomo called it the mayor’s “opinion” rather than a definitive decision. He said any decision would be made not only for New York City, but the state as a whole.10:51 a.m.: PPP estimated to run out of money April 17More than 600,000 forgivable loans have been approved for the Paycheck Protection Program, amounting to a total of $168 billion of the $350 billion program, according to White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow.Kudlow appeared on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” Friday evening and provided the update. The program is part of the $2 trillion economic relief package.Even with that money, Kudlow said the administration estimates that earmarks for small businesses will be exhausted by April 17. He said that’s the reason he’s asking Congress for an additional $250 billion.Democrats in Congress blocked the measure this week because they said they want more money for hospitals, states and cities.10:44 a.m.: US providing assistance to ItalyThe State Department announced that President Donald Trump has authorized an assistance package to help Italy, one of the hardest-hit countries amid the pandemic, as they continue to fight the virus.The package includes support for international organizations and NGOs, many of which provide essential relief to Italian communities, according to a statement from the State Department. The U.S. will also encourage donations from the country’s private sector, while American military personnel who live in Italy will help provide telemedicine services, facilitate the transport and assembly of field hospitals, treat non-COVID-19 patients and support the transport of supplies, fuel and food.The State Department said that Italy “has been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.”“This critical assistance will not only help the Italian people, but will also bolster global trade and supply chains. We are all in this together, and only through transparency, cooperation, and mutual support will we be able to defeat COVID-19,” the statement read.10:23 a.m.: Governors ask Congress for $500 billion for relief fundsMaryland Gov. Larry Hogan and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the leaders of the National Governors Association, have asked Congress for $500 billion for the states as they continue to fight the coronavirus pandemic.The funds would help states bridge their revenue shortfalls and allow them to continue providing services amid the crisis. Hogan, a Republican, and Cuomo, a Democrat, asked the money be added to the next relief package since the CARES Act did not provide money for state governments.It’s not clear when Congress will advance another tranche of relief funds.Democratic leaders have said they would continue negotiating with Treasure Sec. Steven Mnuchin on a broad, follow-up emergency relief package.However, GOP leaders issued a statement Saturday morning saying that the Paycheck Protection Program needs to be replenished before anything else can happen.9:50 a.m.: NYC public schools to remain closed for rest of yearThe New York City public schools will remain closed for the rest of year, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in a press conference.He called it a public health decision.“It’s not an easy decision. It’s not a decision that is satisfying for all of us who have devoted so much time to make sure our kids got the very best education, but it is the right decision,” de Blasio said.The mayor said he would work with schools to ensure tele schooling continued.He outlined his five-point plan to better serve the families of students, including handing out an additional 240,000 tech devices to students who need one by the end of April, expanding the parent help line and staffing, launching new online activities, graduating members of the senior class, and preparing so that schools will be ready to reopen in September.De Blasio also spoke on how the city would better protect the homeless population. The mayor said that around 6,000 homeless people are expected to be housed in hotels by April 20, with a priority for those with COVID-19 symptoms or are COVID-19 positive, seniors, and those in shelters where maintaining social distance is difficult.7:46 am.: Some COVID-19 patients testing positive again: WHOThe World Health Organization (WHO) said on Saturday that it was looking into reports of some COVID-19 patients testing positive again after initially testing negative for the disease while being considered for discharge from hospitals.South Korean officials on Friday reported 91 patients thought cleared of the new coronavirus had tested positive again.“These are very sensitive tests, so you can vacillate sometimes between negative and positive,” said ABC medical contributor and infectious diseases physician Dr. Todd Ellerin when asked about the report.“What’s more important is to make sure these patients don’t have symptoms. If you don’t have symptoms but have a positive test, it may be that you have dead virus that’s still being picked up, but you can’t transmit,” said Ellerin.6:15 a.m.: 70 Georgia nursing home resident test positiveA nursing home in Georgia announced Friday that 70 of its residents have tested positive for COVID-19. Three of those residents have been hospitalized.“We are doing everything we can to protect our residents and staff. This includes providing appropriate PPE, taking heightened precautions and adhering to protocols outlined by the Center for Disease Control,” Windermere Health and Rehabilitation Center’s parent company, SavaSeniorCare Administrative Services, said in a statement Friday.The senior living center said it has isolated the positive patients, is screening employees before every shift and has cut off visitation to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.“We know that this is an unsettling and scary time for our residents and their family members,” the nursing home said. “We are in the process of contacting the family members of every single resident in our Center to keep them informed of their loved one’s condition as it evolves.”Nursing homes and other facilities that care for the elderly have been particularly hit hard by the coronavirus. The Life Care Center of Kirkland, Washington, was the scene of one of the first and most-deadly coronavirus outbreaks last month, with 81 residents infected and 34 deaths.Since Feb. 29, at least 400 nursing facilities in more than 25 states have seen at least one resident contract COVID-19, according to the CDC.4:47 a.m.: Michael Avenatti granted temporary release from prison due to COVID-19Celebrity attorney Michael Avenatti, who represented adult film star Stormy Daniels in her lawsuit against President Donald Trump, was granted temporary release from jail by a California federal judge late Friday due to COVID-19.Once released from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City, Avenatti will be quarantined for 14 days at a Federal Bureau of Prisons facility to make sure he’s not infected with the coronavirus. After completing the mandatory quarantine, he will be allowed to travel to Los Angeles to stay at the home of a friend for 90 days.Tune into ABC at 1 p.m. ET and ABC News Live at 4 p.m. ET every weekday for special coverage of the novel coronavirus with the full ABC News team, including the latest news, context and analysis.He will not be allowed to leave the house except for emergencies and must wear a monitoring bracelet. The judge also said Avenatti can’t use the internet, can’t open any new bank or credit accounts and can’t engage in any transaction exceeding $500.Avenatti’s $1 million bail was posted by Hubert Bromma, who has authored a book called “How to Invest in Offshore Real Estate and Pay Little or No Taxes.”A jury convicted Avenatti in February for trying to extort Nike. He was found guilty on wire fraud, extortion and transmitting a threat in interstate communications charges.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
