The BCCI is supposed to come back on whether the quarantine can be reduced as they are coming from a bubble to [another] bubble. We don’t have any clarity as yet,” Menon told IANS.The KL Rahul-led Kings XI Punjab’s Australia batsman Glenn Maxwell and England pacer Chris Jordan are currently involved in the series, which is locked at 1-1 with the final ODI to be played on Wednesday.Kings XI Punjab take the field for the first time this IPL season against Delhi Capitals at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on September 20.“From what I hear from the bubble, things are exactly as it was planned. We have been following the SoP that has been laid out by the BCCI and authorities,” said the CEO.KKR and Mumbai Indians are the only two teams based in Abu Dhabi with the rest are stationed in Dubai which has no mandatory quarantine period unless the person tests COVID-19 positive.Kings XI Punjab are yet to win the IPL trophy in 12 attempts, but Menon is optimistic they will break the jinx this time.“We are hopeful of winning the title this year.

The Apple Apartment / alto design studio

The 73 m2 apartment is located in a 19th-century building in the city center of Ljubljana. The original larger apartment was in the past divided into two units, as can be seen from the shortened corridor, which is usually quite long in these sort of apartments.The concept of circulating through the corridor that leads into each room and then being able to pass from room to room, was thus considerably weakened.Save this picture!© Nina EminagicSave this picture!Floor plan – ProposedSave this picture!© Nina EminagicThe new project envisioned the connection of two rooms into one larger living room, and one of the rooms was divided into two smaller spaces and a connection with the entrance part. Already in its existing state, part of the corridor was intended for the bathroom, the position of which we have maintained. In order to design the bathroom as elegantly as possible and deal with the varying geometry of the space, which is full of cut corners, niches, we decided on a unifying colour of both the tiles and the cabinets (green) up to 2,10 m high and leveled the space with cabinets that hide the water heater and other necessary bathroom items.Save this picture!© Nina EminagicThe shower was placed partly inside the opening in the wall, where there used to be a passage from the hallway to one of the rooms. And above the straight green line, all the original geometry of this space unfolds in white plaster, which in juxtaposition with the minimalism below is no longer disturbing. The utility room is divided by a mirrored wall that reflects the light coming from the opposite part of the apartment and makes the entire space seem bigger. By opening the door of this mirrored wall, interesting views appear, as reflections are forming through different angles.Save this picture!© Nina EminagicSave this picture!© Nina EminagicAs it is a corner apartment, the structure of the building is designed so that part of the load-bearing wall is directed towards this corner. This angled wall is quite a strong element, so we wanted to emphasize it by designing oblique furniture at the same angle. The bright yellow stepped chest of drawers, for which we drew inspiration from Casa Malaparte of Capri, is positioned opposite the angled wall, and together with the round dining table, they form a kind of circular way through the apartment, which hints at the circulation that would otherwise take place in similar apartments of the previous century.Save this picture!© Nina EminagicSave this picture!© Nina EminagicThere is also a kitchen cabinet cut at the same angle, adjacent to the hall. This works positively in two ways – the kitchen ends at the same angle on both sides and allows a nicer connection to the entrance hall.Save this picture!© Nina EminagicIn addition to the functional layout of the rooms, a lot of attention was put on the choice of materials and colours with which we wanted to express our clients’ youth and playfulness and at the same time a touch of sophistication. Custom-designed furniture is combined with vintage Italian pieces from approx. 1980s (Enzo mari, Achille Castiglioni, Ettore Sottsass, Vico Magistretti …).Save this picture!© Nina EminagicProject gallerySee allShow lessAmos Rex Art Museum – JKMM ArchitectsArchitecture BooksFrédéric Chaubin.

Haiti election 2015: Fight for voting rights, sovereignty

first_imgElections in Haiti for a new president and Parliament are set for Oct. 25 — after a violence-plagued first-round vote for Parliament on Aug. 9.Thousands of demonstrators have filled the streets to demand annulment of the low-turnout August elections, which the Miami Herald said were “marred by violence, fraud and late starts at polling stations across Haiti. Balloting at dozens of polling stations had to be suspended because of armed disruptions.” (Oct. 2)As expected, the ruling party of Haitian President Michel Martelly and his allies dominated the fraudulent first-round results, achieved with a turnout estimated by the Miami Herald at 18 percent nationwide and less than 10 percent in the capital of Port-au-Prince.Martelly, who is termed-out and cannot run in this election, has ruled by decree since January 2015 after refusing to hold elections for local offices or Parliament since 2011. Haitians have demonstrated repeatedly against the government’s repression and corruption.Dr. Maryse Narcisse, Fanmi Lavalas’s candidate for president.“The U.S. government, Martelly, and the Haitian elite hope to use this coming round of elections to put in their own handpicked government and declare that ‘democracy’ exists in Haiti,” said a statement issued by the Haiti Action Committee. “The Haitian grassroots majority, however, has other ideas. For the first time in 15 years, Fanmi Lavalas, the party of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and widely acknowledged as the most popular political movement in Haiti, is fielding candidates. Despite intimidation and terror, they are mobilizing the vote and fighting for a free and fair process.”“Lavalas’s presence on the electoral scene is, in and of itself, a remarkable feat,” the HAC statement continued. “The intent of the two coups against President Aristide in 1991 and 2004 was to destroy Lavalas, the movement that has represented Haiti’s poor since the late 1980s. While President Aristide was in exile in South Africa from 2004-2011, U.S.-backed Haitian regimes carried out a classic counterinsurgency strategy designed to finish the job that the coup had started.“U.N. forces and Haitian police violently attacked the Lavalas popular base in Cite Soleil and other communities, killing many. Thousands of political prisoners were arrested and held for years with no charges under horrendous conditions. Money was spread to divide and weaken the Lavalas infrastructure. Lovinsky Pierre-Antoine, a human rights advocate, Lavalas leader and candidate for Senate, was kidnapped and disappeared in 2007.”‘An electoral coup d’etat’On Sept. 30, the anniversary of the 1991 coup, Aristide made his first public speech since his return from forced exile in 2011, standing side by side with Dr. Maryse Narcisse, the Fanmi Lavalas candidate for president. Speaking in the street and surrounded by thousands of people, many of whom had walked miles to be there, he denounced the August elections as an “electoral coup d’etat” and urged people to get out the vote for Dr. Narcisse.Dr. Narcisse, a medical doctor and long-time Lavalas militant, was setting up health clinics in rural communities at the time of the 1991 coup. Like many Aristide supporters, she went into the streets to protest the military and then was forced into hiding. After Aristide was re-elected in 2000, she joined his administration. Exiled after the 2004 coup, she returned in 2006 to help rebuild Lavalas and serve as Aristide’s spokesperson. If she wins, she would be the first elected woman president in Haiti’s history.“The strength of Fanmi Lavalas, a party rooted in the poor majority of Haitians and their demands for a just society, is precisely the reason it is under such attack in this election,” stated the HAC. “Throughout this campaign, Lavalas supporters have been arrested, threatened, jailed, beaten and killed. Fraud and intimidation prevented many Fanmi Lavalas candidates from running in the Parliamentary races, and strong candidates were denied victories through rigged vote-counting.“Haitians know all the tricks and terror the Martelly regime is using to prevent them from voting. … They are determined to exercise their legal rights, enshrined in the popular 1987 constitution, to publicly organize and promote a platform — one more front in Haiti’s struggle for independence, sovereignty, and liberation.”A big factor in the elections is the U.S. government, which has funneled millions of dollars to influence the conduct and outcome of Haiti’s elections. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Haiti on a jawboning trip in early October, just as his predecessor Hillary Clinton intervened in past Haitian elections without regard to the sovereignty of Haiti. In addition, the elections are taking place under the shadow of the continuing U.S./U.N. military occupation of Haiti, which was put in place at the time of the U.S.-sponsored coup in 2004.

Raúl Castro honored

first_imgThe excerpts below are from the Cuban daily newspaper, Granma, April 17.“Let no one doubt that as long as I live, I will be ready, with a foot in the stirrup, to defend the homeland, the Revolution and socialism,” stated Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee, who, like another Mambi or guerrilla, always ready with his horse saddled and a rifle under his pillow, reported that his task leading the political organization had reached its conclusion.Raúl Castro Ruz at the 8th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party, April 16.Ending his presentation of the 8th Party Congress Central Report, on the gathering’s opening day, Raúl expressed the satisfaction of having fulfilled his duty and conveyed his confidence in the future of the homeland, but emphasized his unchanging commitment to participate as a member of the party ranks. “I will continue serving as one more revolutionary fighter, ready to make my modest contribution until the end of my life,” he insisted.The moving historic moment sealed the reading of a Central Report which, in a clear and objective manner, reviewed what had been done over the last five years, with respect to each of the country’s strategic issues.The first session of the Congress, which will continue through April 19, was also attended by Political Bureau members Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, President of the Republic; José Ramón Machado Ventura, second secretary; and Esteban Lazo Hernández, President of the National Assembly and Council of State; as well as other Party and government leaders.In his opening remarks, Machado Ventura asserted that the Party constitutes “a guarantee of national unity and a synthesis of the ideals of dignity, social justice and independence of generations of patriots who preceded us and those who have made these ideas their own, over all these years of struggle and victory.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In the newly created position, Jergovic will collaborate closely with the president and provost, and with the division chairs, faculty, and senior leadership on campus and at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, to execute and integrate Caltech’s strategic initiatives and projects and ensure that they complement and support the overall education and research missions of the campus and JPL. This appointment returns the number of vice presidents at the Institute to six.Supporting the faculty is Caltech’s highest priority,” says Edward Stolper, provost and interim president, “and as we pursue complex interdisciplinary and institutional initiatives, we do so with the expectation that they will evolve over a long time horizon. The VP for strategy implementation will help the Institute ensure long-term success for our most important new activities.”In her present role as associate provost for academic and budgetary initiatives at the University of Chicago, Jergovic serves as a liaison between the Office of the Provost and the other academic and administrative offices on campus, and advances campus-wide strategic initiatives. She engages in efforts spanning every university function, including development, major construction, and budgeting, as well as with faculty governance and stewardship matters. Jergovic also serves as chief of staff to University of Chicago provost Thomas F. Rosenbaum, Caltech’s president-elect.“In order to continue Caltech’s leadership role and to define new areas of eminence, we will inevitably have to forge new partnerships and collaborations—some internal, some external, some both,” Rosenbaum says. “The VP for strategy implementation is intended to provide support for the faculty and faculty leaders in realizing their goals for the most ambitious projects and collaborations, implementing ideas and helping create the structures that make them possible. I was looking for a person who had experience in delivering large-scale projects, understood deeply the culture of a top-tier research university, and could think creatively about a national treasure like JPL.”“My career has evolved in an environment where faculty governance is paramount,” Jergovic says. “Over the years, I have cultivated a collaborative approach working alongside a very dedicated faculty leadership. My hope is to bring this experience to Caltech and to integrate it into the existing leadership team in a manner that simultaneously leverages my strengths and allows us together to ensure that the Institute continues to flourish, to retain its position as the world’s leading research university, and to retain its recognition as such.”Prior to her position as associate provost, Jergovic was the University of Chicago’s assistant vice president for research and education, responsible for the financial management and oversight of all administrative aspects of the Office of the Vice President for Research and Argonne National Laboratory. She engaged in research-related programmatic planning with a special emphasis on the interface between the university and Argonne National Laboratory. This ranged from the development of the university’s Science and Technology Outreach and Mentoring Program (STOMP), a weekly outreach program administered by university faculty, staff, and students in low-income neighborhood schools on the South Side of Chicago, to extensive responsibilities with the university’s successful bid to retain management of Argonne National Laboratory.From 1994 to 2001, Jergovic was a research scientist with the university-affiliated National Opinion Research Center (NORC) and, in 2001, served as project director for NORC’s Florida Ballot Project, an initiative that examined, classified, and created an archive of the markings on Florida’s 175,000 uncertified ballots from its contested 2000 presidential election.Jergovic earned a BS in psychology and an MA and PhD in developmental psychology, all from Loyola University Chicago, and an MBA from the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. 4 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Herbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyShort On Time? 10-Minute Workouts Are Just What You NeedHerbeautyHerbeauty People Caltech Appoints Diana Jergovic to Newly Created Position of Vice President for Strategy Implementation By KATHY SVITIL Published on Thursday, March 13, 2014 | 11:40 am More Cool Stuff Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Fraudulent Fire Investigators Targeting Pasadena Businesses

first_img faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Subscribe Make a comment Businesses in Pasadena and across the state have been targeted by scam artists who wear official-looking blue shirts and pants and claim they are there to “inspect” the fire extinguishers, smoke alarms, or sprinkler systems. They ask an unsuspecting employee to sign a form authorizing the inspection. Weeks or months later, a bill comes to the business’s owner for “work done” or “services rendered.” The bill, sometimes for an annual inspection appears to have been signed by an employee, but occasionally is fraudulently signed once a responsible party is identified (i.e. manager, supervisor, lead person).The Pasadena Fire Department wants area businesses to know that while local fire department officials do conduct such inspections, the bill for the inspection comes from the City of Pasadena and not a private billing company. These inspections are conducted annually or bi-annually based on the occupancy. Before allowing any inspector to enter your business, require the individual to present government-issued identification. Pasadena Fire Department inspectors and firefighters all wear badges, and their uniforms will have a Pasadena Fire Department patch. Additionally, inspectors will be driving official Pasadena Fire Department vehicles with government license plates or an emergency vehicle.If you suspect suspicious activity, or have been a victim of the fraudulent activity, contact the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-4241 or the Pasadena Fire Department at (626) 744-7184.
