The site is located in Otobashi, dense residential area, some distance away from Nagoya Station. We designed a house for a father and his daughter. The father asked for a modern Japanese style, and on the other hand the daughter asked for an artistic interior design with a vivid color scheme.Save this picture!© Yasuno SakataA spacious void space is placed at the entrance area, serving as a buffer zone to provide a comfortable distance between each other.

In the courtyard surrounded by the walls, a detached study is located away like floating in the air and the study has a domed ceiling reflecting the light.

Upcoming Field Days Promote Soil Health Partnership

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Upcoming Field Days Promote Soil Health Partnership Facebook Twitter SHARE Bible on soil healthIndiana farmer Brent Bible practiced no-till farming and the use of cover crops on his fields in Tippecanoe and Montgomery Counties, but last year he decided to learn even more about cover crops and joined the Soil Health Partnership. He treated the move as an educational opportunity.“We don’t have a lot of experience or a lot of knowledge regarding soil and health and what kind of management practices can impact that, positively or negatively. So we want to understand that a little bit better. We want to learn from some of those who have been involved in that arena for a longer period of time and look at what type of concentration in terms of management practices we might be able to do that might impact that and see a scientific or economic result from those.”Bible says for him the initial stages of SHP were learning how to learn.“What I mean by that is we’re learning who the right people are, who the people are to go to and ask questions of and who the good resources are. In our case we’re concentrating on cover crop management practices. Who are some of those people you might look at as experts in that field, and understanding where we can go for that source of information. I think we’ve been very successful in building some of that network and opening some of those communication lines. We’ll build upon that as the partnership goes on through the next few years.”He told HAT this is a long term effort in which they are looking for long term results and solutions over the next 5-20 years.Bible and other Soil Health Partnership demonstration network farmers will be sharing ideas with other producers throughout the Midwest during soil health field days from August through the end of the year.The field days will demonstrate how changing certain practices can create lasting environmental benefits while potentially increasing farm productivity and income. Examples of educational topics include:Cover crop benefits and integration into local cropping systems;Nutrient management and other strategies to improve soil health;Hands-on soil demonstrations; andFarmer panels to discuss local experiences with cover crops.Cover crops have gained attention for improving soil health because they capture excess nitrogen left in the soil and put good plant residue back into the ground.An initiative of the National Corn Growers Association, the SHP works closely with diverse organizations including commodity groups, industry, foundations, federal agencies, universities and well-known environmental groups toward the common goal of improving soil health.“We encourage sound soil practices combined with scientific quantification of results from farmers taking positive actions,” said Nick Goeser, SHP director. “Improved crop productivity, environmental gains and economic growth are all benefits of progressive soil management strategies.”The partnership has scheduled about a dozen events in Iowa, Illinois and Indiana, and anticipates dozens more in these and other Midwestern states throughout the summer and fall.Bible plans on hosting one of the field days, where in part, he will share his success with cereal rye and oats on his farm. He also has experience with tillage cover such as turnips, radishes and snow peas.“We have tried several different blends of cover crops, looking for the right combination,” he said. “It has had its challenges sometimes, but it has been a good experience overall. Our costs are lower, plus we have less erosion and runoff.”The updated schedule is at the Soil Health Partnership website, and the schedule will be updated throughout the summer.

Turkey: Appeal court could uphold life sentences for three well-known journalists

first_img September 21, 2018 Turkey: Appeal court could uphold life sentences for three well-known journalists Receive email alerts At the end of the original trial in February, the three journalists were sentenced to “aggravated life imprisonment,” the Turkish judicial system’s harshest punishment, which precludes any possibility of a pardon and prohibits temporary releases. They are aged 68, 65 and 74 respectively. News Arrested in September 2016, the Altan brothers and Ilıcak were convicted 18 months later of “trying to overthrow the constitutional order” in connection with their journalistic activities, in particular, their criticism of the authorities during a TV programme broadcast the day before the July 2016 coup attempt. After a preliminary hearing in June, an Istanbul regional court will today begin examining the substance of the appeals of three well-known journalists, Ahmet Altan, Mehmet Altan and Nazlı Ilıcak. If it confirms their sentences, they will end their days in prison, subjected to a drastic form of solitary confinement, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) warns. RSF_en RSF_TR Help by sharing this information Under Turkey’s sentence implementation law, persons convicted of “aggravated life imprisonment” are confined to an individual cell nearly all day, are allowed just a single one-hour visit by a close relative and a ten-minute phone call every two weeks, and are not let out of prison for any reason other than hospitalization. When an ailment cannot be treated in the prison infirmary, they are taken to an isolated room in a state hospital.

Many media outlets have been closed summarily, without any form of recourse, mass trials are being held and the country now holds the world record for the number of professional journalists detained.

Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) to constitute an Expert Committee of Doctors to constantly inspect the affairs of hospitals dedicated to COVID-19 patients.2. Expert Committee in Delhi will comprise of Senior Doctors from Central Government Hospitals, Doctors from GNCT Hospitals, AIIMS as well as an officer from MoHFW3. This Committee has been authorised to inspect, supervise and issue directions to hospitals in NCT based on their inspection. Committee must visit each such hospital at least once a week.4. Committee may pay a surprise visit in addition to the prescribed weekly visit, and submit a report to NCT as well as MoHFW.5. All States to also constitute Expert Committees for inspection and guidance to hospitals, and to issue necessary guidelines regarding infrastructure.6. Chief Secretaries of all States have been directed to ensure such Committees are constituted immediately so as to begin their work within a week’s time. This direction stems from the affidavits filed by the Centre and GNCT Delhi after the Top Court had sought a response from them regarding remedial steps taken by them. Noting that the Delhi Government appears unaware of the shortcomings in its patient care facilities, it is urged that more vigilance is required to ascertain what the problem is and consequently take steps to remedy it.”The affidavit tries to give an impression to the Court that everything in the Government hospital in NCT, Delhi is well and all steps are being taken by the Government of NCT of Delhi. When the Government does not endeavour to know any shortcomings or lapses in its hospitals and patient care, the chances of remedial action and improvement becomes dim.…We impress upon Government of NCT of Delhi to be more vigilant in knowing about the deficiency and lapses in functioning of the hospitals and patients care and take immediate & remedial steps to redeem the miseries of patients, the public who needs medical care and help.”Regarding Installation of CCTV Cameras1. Footage from the CCTV Cameras shall be made available by the hospitals in NCT of Delhi to the Expert Committee for scrutiny during inspection.2. In Government Hospitals of NCT Delhi, where CCTV cameras are not yet installed, steps must be taken to install them in all wards3. Chief Secretaries of other States must also take appropriate steps to install CCTV Cameras in all hospitals dedicated to the treatment of COVID patients.While pulling up GNCT Delhi, the Supreme Court acknowledged this ‘welcome step’ taken by LNJP Hospital in installing CCTV cameras in all wards of the hospital. Observing that such a step would “not only help the hospital management to immediately find out the requirement of proper care with regard to patients admitted in the wards but also ensure transparency in the patients care in the hospital”, the Court directed all States to install CCTV cameras across government hospitals dedicated for the care of COVID-19 patients.Regarding Attendants to Be Present With COVID Patient1. All Covid-dedicated hospitals shall permit one willing attendant of the patient in the hospital premise, who can remain in an area earmarked by the hospital.2. All COVID-19 dedicated hospitals to set up a helpdesk to physically or telephonically address enquiries about patients admitted in the facility.Regarding Discharge Policy1. Ministry of Home Affairs to issue appropriate directions, in discharge of their power under the Disaster Management Act 2005, to all States and Union Territories (UTs) to follow the policy of 08.05.2020 in discharging of different categories of patients.The Top Court endorsed the Centre’s discharge policy, which, the Court stated, must be followed uniformly by all States and Union Territories (UTs), in order to achieve clarity in the minds of all concerned.Regarding Capping of Prices for COVID-19 Testing and Other Facilities1. The Centre may issue appropriate guidelines or directions to all States and UTs and prescribe reasonable rates for all COVID related facilities and tests. These directions must be uniformly followed by all concerned.2. If there is a difference in any particular State or UT, the same may be specifically noticed and directed accordingly.Regarding Pricing1. The Court recorded the submission of the State of Maharashtra that its Government had already fixed the rate of testing at Rs.2200 and Rs.2800, and alluded to it as a welcome step2. The affidavit of NCT Delhi was also noted, wherein it has been informed that the cost of testing has been reduced substantially and the Government has issued Orders pursuant to the sameRegarding Daily Tests Being Conducted1. The Bench took note of Maharashtra Government’s submission that 16000 tests were being conducted across the State on a daily basis.2. The Court recorded NCT Delhi’s submission that by June 20 daily testing would be increased to 18,000 in the National CapitalRegarding Maharashtra’s Policy of Not Giving the Report of COVID Positive Patient to RelativesDuring the hearing, Bench took note of a circular released by the Maharashtra Government pertaining to non-giving of reports of Coronavirus test to patients and/or their relatives and observed that such a restriction imposed by the State Government should be done away with. The Counsel for the State of Maharashtra stated that he would advise the Government to review the circular and assured the Court that the families would be permitted to get the reports.”We have no doubt that the States and all concerned shall supply a copy of the report of the patient to him or his relatives and the hospital”, recorded the Order.

Fake Romeo arrested for allegedly scamming thousands from dozens of women in 8 states

first_imgLos Angeles Police Department(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles police are looking for more victims of a Lothario who will do more than just steal your heart.Wilson Edward Jackson was arrested on Thursday after police said he scammed dozens of women in at least eight states out of thousands of dollars under the pretense of forming romantic relationships. He has been charged with felony identity theft, fraud and grand theft auto, according to authorities.The 37-year-old from Woodland Hills, California, would use online dating apps and social media to woo women — even flying them out to Southern California — before stealing money, checks and credit card information, Los Angeles police said.“While they were asleep or using the bathroom he would go into their purse, steal their identity, their checking account information, their debit card and credit card information,” LAPD Capt. Lillian Carranza told Los Angeles ABC station KABC.He would also ask women for loans, but provide repayment with checks from closed accounts, police said.Jackson even allegedly claimed to be a millionaire with women he spoke to online. In reality, he’s in debt up to $12,000, owed to his landlord, according to KABC.Los Angeles police said Jackson used Plenty of Fish and Black People Meet in order to connect with the women.“We started off on kind of casual conversation, which eventually led to a little bit of flirting and maybe wanting to get to know each other a little bit,” Acacia Oudinot, an Air Force veteran who says she met Jackson in 2017 after he friended her on Facebook, told Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV. “He was very sweet and very flirty. He was fun to talk to.”Oudinot arranged to meet Jackson in Los Angeles, but when she went to the airport, the airline ticket he had bought her turned out to be fake. She said she bought a new one with the promise from him he would refund her.After meeting him, she believes Jackson took photos of her credit and debit cards while she was in the shower and he bilked her out of $7,000.Oudinot helped connect the dots for police, spreading Jackson’s information online and connecting with several other women who were scammed.Orlando police had previously named Jackson as a person of interest in similar cases of fraud in December 2011.The LAPD is asking anyone who believes they might have been a victim of Jackson to call 818-374-9420.Jackson is being held at Los Angeles County Jail on $270,000 bond.His next court appearance is May 29.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Former Louisville officer charged in Breonna Taylor case sued over alleged 2018 sexual assault

first_imgMarilyn Nieves/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — A former Kentucky police officer facing criminal charges related to the Breonna Taylor shooting is being sued by a young woman who claims he sexually assaulted her in 2018 while she was intoxicated after giving her a ride home from a bar where he was moonlighting as a security guard.The lawsuit filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court in Louisville on Tuesday alleges former Louisville Metro Police Detective Brett Hankison used his badge and uniform to cultivate a friendship with the 22-year-old woman before he allegedly assaulted her, “leaving her physically injured and mentally battered.”The lawsuit alleges a pattern of practice by Hankison to target unsuspecting women and contains statements from some of them who allege Hankison offered them rides home from various bars he worked at in Louisville before allegedly making unwanted advances.“Brett Hankison is a 44-year-old sexual predator. For years, he has used his police uniform and secondary night club employment as mechanisms to prey on innocent women who are two decades younger than him,” according to the lawsuit filed by Margo Borders, a law school student.The lawyers who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Borders also represented the family of Taylor in a $12 million settlement reached with the City of Louisville over a wrongful death lawsuit stemming from the fatal March 13 shooting of Taylor by police who were attempting to serve a no-knock search warrant on her apartment.Hankison was the only officer charged in the Taylor case. A grand jury indicted him on Sept. 23 on three counts of wanton endangerment for allegedly firing errant bullets into Taylor’s apartment that penetrated a wall and entered an occupied apartment next door to Taylor’s residence. Hankison has pleaded not guilty to the charges.Hankison was fired from the police force after an internal affairs investigation determined he violated department protocols and procedures during the Taylor incident.“Our client, Margo, felt that it was necessary to come forward and pursue justice, and hold Brett accountable,” Lonita Baker, one of Borders’ lawyers, told ABC News on Wednesday. “He used his uniform and badge to target unsuspecting women whom he knew were in a possible state where they could not consent and took advantage of them. It’s disgusting.”Efforts to reach Hankison by ABC News were not successful. His criminal attorney, Stew Mathews, told ABC News that he has yet to speak to Hankison about the lawsuit and that he did not know if the former officer has hired a civil lawyer.“I just found out it was filed yesterday. So I don’t know anything about it,” Mathews said.Borders first made allegations against Hankison in June in a Facebook post in which she alleged Hankison sexually assaulted her inside her residence while she was intoxicated and unconscious.“It took me months to process what had happened and to realize that it wasn’t my fault and I didn’t ask for that to happen by allowing him to give me a ride home,” Borders wrote in the Facebook post. “I never reported him out of fear of retaliation. I had no proof of what happened and he had the upper hand because he was a police officer. Who do you call when the person who assaulted you is a police officer? Who were they going to believe? I knew it wouldn’t be me.”Baker said Borders reached out to her law firm following the Taylor shooting when investigators named Hankison as one of three officers who fired a total of 32 shots in the 26-year-old Black woman’s home after Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, fired one shot that hit a police sergeant in the leg when officers forced open the apartment door.Kentucky State Attorney General Daniel Cameron said his office did not pursue homicide charges in the Taylor case because Walker fired the first shot and the officers were justified in their use of deadly force.Borders’ lawsuit also claims that multiple women filed complaints against Hankison for making unwanted advances toward them, but that his supervisors in the police department, including former Police Chief Steve Conrad, never disciplined Hankison.Baker told ABC News the complaints “were swept under the rug.”Asked to respond to the lawsuit, Officer Beth Ruoff, a spokesperson for the Louisville Metro Police Department, told ABC News on Wednesday, “We are unable to speak publicly on matters before the court and must cite pending litigation as our reason for not commenting further.”The suit alleges that on April 20, 2018, Borders went to the Tin Roof bar in Louisville to meet friends for drinks. She claimed that Hankison, who was working at the bar as a security guard, offered to give her a ride home and she accepted. She claimed that she had known Hankison for about a year and Hankison would frequently contact her on social media.“Margo had no objections to a ride home from a police officer. She wouldn’t have to pay for an Uber and felt protected with an officer making sure she got home safely,” according to the lawsuit.Borders, according to the suit, claimed Hankison walked her to the door and invited himself in.She admitted that she was intoxicated, according to the lawsuit.“Margo left Hankison on the couch and went to her room to change. She’d had plenty to drink and went to sleep rather than returning to the living room,” the lawsuit said. “While Margo was unconscious, Hankison went into her room, stripped off his clothes and willfully, intentionally, painfully and violently sexually assaulted Margo.”Borders, according to the suit, did not consent to have sex with Hankison. She claimed that when she regained consciousness, she yelled at Hankison to get off her, according to the suit, adding that Hankison grabbed his uniform and left.Borders claimed that Hankison messaged her the next day and tried to suggest they had engaged in consensual relations.The lawsuit also names the owner and managers of the Tin Roof as defendants in the lawsuit.In a statement released on Wednesday to ABC affiliate station WHAS in Louisville, management of the Tin Roof said Hankison was terminated in the spring.“We feel there is an obligation to provide a safe environment for guests as they enter and exit the venue and would never deliberately put the safety of our patrons at risk especially by those contracted to serve and protect,” the statement said. “We find the allegations to be reprehensible, and our company does not tolerate abuse of power or discrimination in any form.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
