The construction of 198sqm, includes of 3 main sections: Office quarter, Living room quarter and Private room quarter.

The other 70% of the total area is filled with all kinds of greens: vegetables, tropical fruit trees, flowers, and Japanese grass carpets. Chong Chong Architecture has tried to un-touch the natures of the plot from day one. In Rainy Season, the rain water would be partly kept by the garden on the second floor, the rest would be down into greens on the ground. In Summer, the trees around the building would function as a natural air conditioning as they always do.Save this picture!© Duong Van MauDesign Ideas and Solutions for Heat Proofing and Tropical Storm Resistance. 1. Upstairs Garden Solution. In the recent years. We all have experienced so many floods in major cities: Saigon, Hanoi and Da nang. Dozens of solution were put on the table. However, the most effective and simplest is always partly keep rainy water for the upstairs garden before absorbing to the ground. The upstairs gardens not only keep a countable amount of rain water for the greens but also heat proofs for the whole building. This would make the house owner reduce electricity use in the house as the air-conditioner. Besides, the garden freshly ventilates the house too. There would be more rain in our planet which is warming up in every single day. And of course, the more green roof there are, the more improved our living environment will be.Save this picture!© Duong Van MauSave this picture!Section 01Save this picture!© Duong Van Mau2. Roof Solution. Inspired by the traditional country houses of 3 section-house roofed with cogon grass which is totally environmental friendly, heat proof, easy to be built, reasonable price and completely cosy. The only downside of the cogon grass roof is not so long lasting(from 8 to 10 years). Thus we have a concrete supporting layers underneath. So the combination of cogon grass+ concrete roof shows the most effective solution in both stormy rainy season and the summer heat resistance. The canopy and garden in front of the upstairs, the place where the owner can both enjoy reading and gardening. Perfect space for family time. The upstairs garden would be also the fun place for kids and BBQ party at weekends. “At first, i’m quite impressed” said the owner. “It brings me back to my childhood, I feel no boundaries between indoors and out, people and nature, city and countryside.” Green roof tops, the best solution for Global Warming Scenario. The greener the roofs, the fresher the environment will be.Save this picture!© Duong Van MauProject gallerySee allShow lessInternational Cooperative Education Building of USST / Le ArchitectsSelected ProjectsCGD Gramado Garden / Alex Hanazaki PaisagismoSelected Projects Share Architects: Chong Chóng Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Projects Houses Photographs:  Duong Van Mau Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project SKB house / Chong Chóng ArchitectureSave this projectSaveSKB house / Chong Chóng Architecture CopyHouses•Thành phố Hội An, Vietnam Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Terrazzo & Marble, An Cuong, Daikin, Dulux, Panasonic, Blue Stone, Inax ceramic, Le Van Sa Concrete, Megasun, Natural Oak Wood, Plaster ceiling, Trimble, local material, wisdom Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Area:  198 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  2020 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945678/skb-house-chong-chong-architecture Clipboard Save this picture!© Duong Van Mau+ 44Curated by Hana Abdel Share Vietnam ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/945678/skb-house-chong-chong-architecture Clipboard CopyAbout this officeChong Chóng ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesThành phố Hội AnOn FacebookVietnamPublished on August 14, 2020Cite: “SKB house / Chong Chóng Architecture” 14 Aug 2020.

Most companies favour cash giving while multinationals and larger local companies are more likely to also provide volunteering opportunities to charities.Who in a company makes the decision on charitable support?The research showed that the CEO is the most influential decision maker in local companies when it comes to charities, with 49% of CEOs at large domestic companies and 62% in SME’s taking a lead in company giving.In larger multinational companies employees tend to play a bigger role where the research found only 16% of CEOs make the decision who to support. A core benefit of corporate philanthropy for multinationals and larger companies is empowering their employees by giving them the responsibility for selecting the cause that the company will ultimately support.The research found that a high proportion of companies (42%) aim to align their philanthropic activity with the company’s overall business goals and objectives but the importance of tying in philanthropic activity with business objectives varies across business categories.Measuring impact of philanthropyOver half of the companies in the survey measure the success of their philanthropy (53%) and each use different methods to do this. The most popular measurement of success for companies is the feedback that they receive from the cause supported.A copy of the full report can downloaded from Philanthropy Ireland’s website.

Though not widespread, we’ve seen pockets of drought and flooding that reduced yields and grain quality. Some hard-hit farms are posting corn yields at just 75 to 100 bushels per acre or less. They won’t be the only ones submitting crop loss insurance claims this year. For some farmers, low grain prices will be the biggest challenge that triggers a claim.Nationwide, corn crop prices are looking like they will be well below the spring guarantee corn price of $3.86. If corn is in the $3.00 to $3.35 range, that will likely trigger many revenue-based crop insurance claims. In these market conditions, it’s a good idea to stay in contact with your insurance specialist to evaluate potential claims and their impact on your farm’s bottom line.Claim ExampleThis year, most of our claims will almost certainly be a result of a low corn price. But depending on where you are, yield loss from weather could be a factor as well. Consider the following scenarios.To start, let’s say you have an approved production history (APH) of 180 bushels per acre at 80 percent revenue coverage, which guarantees you 144 bushels per acre. The 2016 spring price guarantee was $3.86. 144 bushels X $3.86 = a spring guarantee of $555 an acre.Now, let’s look at how $3.00 corn this fall can put you under your guarantee even if you are right at your APH.Say your average harvest this year is 180 bushels an acre, which is the same as your APH, and the fall price sits at $3.00. 180 bushels X $3.00 price = $540 an acre, or $15 below your spring guarantee, which will trigger a revenue claim.What if you face a combination of low price and below-average yield? Let’s say your harvest is 160 bushels per acre and the corn price is at $3.33. 160 bushels X $3.33 price = $532 an acre, or $23 below your spring guarantee, also triggering a claim.There are plenty of crop insurance questions to answer. For example, what if your yield is at or somewhat above your guarantee but the corn price is low? What is your coverage level? Is your policy on enterprise units or optional units? Did you choose 80 percent or 85 percent coverage? These details and others can make a big difference in determining if you should be getting an insurance payment and, if so, how much. Working closely with your crop insurance provider can help shed light on your unique situation this season.

Claims that exaggerate a food’s expected health benefit or are not adequately substantiated will no longer be permitted. To date, some 38 claims have been rejected and products are not permitted to continue bearing these specific claims. Examples of such rejected claims include a chocolate include a chocolate that helps you to grow and a black tea that helps focus attention,” Prof Reilly said.However, the seminar also heard that it will be some time before all false claims are removed from the market. This is due to the unprecedented number of general health claims that were submitted by the industry across the EU for assessment. General claims are all claims, excluding claims that relate to disease risk reduction or children’s health and development.

Therefore, Datar submitted, there was no need for the Executive Council to take the concurrence of the Academic Council for NLAT as argued by the petitioners.There are no regulations framed with respect to admission test, Datar told a bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and M R Shah.After briefly hearing Datar on this point, the bench said that it will continue the matter tomorrow at 11. 30 AM.Earlier in the day, the bench heard Senior Advocates Nidhesh Gupta and Gopal Sankaranarayanan for the petitioners(report about their arguments may be read here).On September 11, the Supreme Court had said that it will examine the legality of the decision and restrained NLSIU from publishing the results of NLAT and conducting admissions on its basis, while allowing it to hold the test on September 12. It was on September 3 that the NLSIU issued the revised admission notification stating that it will not accept CLAT scores for admissions to the academic year 2020-21 and that the same will be based on the NLAT.The NLSIU cited the repeated postponement of CLAT on account of COVID-19 as a reason for the decision behind the separate test. It said that the University is under a compulsion to complete the admission process by September end, as it follows a trimester system distinct from other National Law Universities.The complete updates from the hearing may be read here. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The Bench of Justice Pushpa Ganediwala was hearing an appeal against conviction of the appellant for the offence punishable under Sections 376 (1) and 451 of the Indian Penal Code, passed by the ASJ, Yavatmal, in Special (POCSO) Case No. 35 of 2016, sentencing him to suffer rigorous imprisonment for 10 years.The first information statement of the girl was as follows :”It was the time of 9.30 p.m. At the relevant time, I was lying on a cot in my house. My younger brother was sleeping on ground. My mother had been to natural call out of the house. At that time, accused Suraj came in my house under the influence of liquor. He gagged my mouth and not allowed me to shout when I tried to shout. Thereafter, he removed his clothes and also removed by clothes from my person”.She then added that the accused committed rape on her and ran away, and after her mother returned, the FIR was lodged.The High Court observed that the testimony of the prosecutrix did not “inspire confidence” and was against “normal human conduct”. The Court observed, A perusal of this portion of the testimony of the prosecutrix, as rightly pointed out by the learned defence counsel,does not inspire the confidence of the Court as the incident, as narrated, does not appeal to the reason as it is against the natural human conduct. Undisputedly, the appellant is the neighbour of the prosecutrix. It seems highly impossible for a single man to gag the mouth of the prosecutrix and remove her clothes and his clothes and to perform the forcible sexual act, without any scuffle. The Medical evidence also does not support the case of the prosecutrix. The Court further noted :”Had it been a case of forcible intercourse, there would have been scuffle between the parties. In medical report, no injuries of scuffle could be seen. The defence of consensual physical relations does appear probable. In cross-examination, the defence could bring on record the probable doubt with regard to consensual relations. In her cross-examination, she has admitted that “it is true that if my mother had not come, I would not have lodged report”.Background of the Case On 26th July 2013, the prosecutrix lodged a report against the appellant for committing rape on her by criminal trespassing into her house. On the basis of the report, crime came to be registered against the appellant for the offence punishable under Sections 376(2)(i)(j) and 451 of the Indian Penal Code and under Section 4 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, (hereinafter referred to as POCSO Act). The Special Court framed charge against the appellant for the offence punishable under Sections 376(2)(i)(j) and 451 of the Indian Penal Code and under Section 4 of the POCSO Act. After hearing both the sides, the Special Court found that the prosecution could prove the charge of rape and criminal trespass, however, it was observed that the prosecution could not prove the age of the prosecutrix that at the relevant time she was below 18 years.Court’s Observations At the outset, the High Court found that a perusal of the testimony of the prosecutrix, her mother and the medical evidence coupled with birth certificate does not establish the fact that at the relevant time, the prosecutrix was below 18 years of age. Further, the Court, while observing that in the medical report, no injuries of scuffle could be seen, remarked, Had it been a case of forcible intercourse, there would have been scuffle between the parties. In medical report, no injuries of scuffle could be seen. The defence of consensual physical relations does appear probable. In cross-examination, the defence could bring on record the probable doubt with regard to consensual relations. In her cross-examination, she has admitted that “it is true that if my mother had not come, I would not have lodged report”. The Court noted that the appellant was sentenced to 10 years rigorous imprisonment and since the punishment was strict, evidence required stricter proof.”As per settled law, stricter the sentence, stricter the proof is required”, the Court said.Importantly, the Court observed, “No doubt, sole testimony of the prosecutrix in rape cases is sufficient to fix the criminal liability against the appellant, however, in the instant case, considering the sub-standard quality of testimony of the prosecutrix, it would be a grave injustice to send the appellant behind the bar for 10 years.” Lastly, the Court opined that the prosecution miserably failed to fix the criminal liability of rape against the appellant by criminal trespassing in the house of the prosecutrix. Thus, the Court observed that the appellant deserved to be acquitted and the judgment and order of conviction dated 14th March 2019 passed by the Special Court was quashed and set aside.Case title – Suraj v.
