However, prices fell 1.5 per cent and profits rose 3 per cent on higher sales and cost cutting.FAST FACTS | COLGATE-PALMOLIVEThe company was incorporated in 1923 and sells products in more than 200 countries.Best known for its Colgate oral care products, the group sells toothpaste, brushes and floss to dentists and consumers.

Rooted in the greenery of the village of Fatqa, 6 Kms away from the Beirut – Tripoli Highway, House K is a private residence built through maximal fusion with its surroundings. The 780sqm plot, is located at an alleyway’s dead end and originally made up of six planted terraces of 1meter height each. The place’s natural charm highlighted by its authentic local stonewalls, was the main inspiration behind the architectural design. In this iteration, the project is articulated as a landscape extension of the existing topography through the reconstruction of these walls in order to inhabit and cap them; two large concrete slabs were created to do the trick.Save this picture!© Wissam ChaayaSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Wissam ChaayaEventually, a strong will of praising the environment and preserving the inherited character urged the architect to reinterpret a vernacular conception of space and material choice, starting by reusing the indigenous stones of the land and following today’s technologies through the use of an innovative structural system. With the intention being to fully clear out the architectural impact, HOUSE K ‘s only marks remain the two slabs with reversed beams in cascade; one serves to be the garden of the main area while the other one nests the pool. Save this picture!© Wissam ChaayaThe smooth relation with the parents’ house next-door, along with the practical accessibility which dwells into the ground floor, turning it to the most-frequented part of the residence. Its welcoming flow projects into an open space, in which adjacent bedrooms, study and service areas surround an inner patio. This particularity of the Lebanese traditional central hall house brings us a new twisted version of the classic typology. At the upper level lies a reception area and the main kitchen connected to a backyard from one side and the main garden on the other. This specificity and exposure ensure cross ventilation all year round.Save this picture!© Wissam ChaayaTwo cantilever roofs, which are the project’s signature, contour the two floors, separating the public area from the private one. Calculated thoroughly, they insure great natural light in the sleeping area and control it on the upper floor. Oriented South East, the main facade emphasizes the perfect implementation of a solar home. Thus, House K represents the prototype of an updated shelter where sustainability, fluidity, and integration translate the renowned philosophy: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication ” Leonardo Da VinciSave this picture!© Wissam ChaayaProject gallerySee allShow lessBucherer Flagship Store / Office Haratori + Office WinhovSelected ProjectsGreen House / KARABONSelected Projects Share Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930927/house-k-aljareza-consultants-international Clipboard House K / Alphonse Kai ArchitectSave this projectSaveHouse K / Alphonse Kai Architectcenter_img Year:  Photographs Area:  750 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Lebanon ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/930927/house-k-aljareza-consultants-international Clipboard CopyHouses•Fatqa, Lebanon House K / Alphonse Kai Architect “COPY” Manufacturers: EGGER, panoramah!®, Laufen, Choucair Group, Kitwood Lead Architect: CopyAbout this officeAlphonse Kai ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookFatqaLebanonPublished on December 26, 2019Cite: “House K / Alphonse Kai Architect” 26 Dec 2019.

Justice for Akiel Denkins

first_imgPolice in Raleigh, N.C., shot and killed 24-year-old Akiel Denkins, a father of two, on Feb. 29 in his neighborhood in Southeast Raleigh. That night, his family, along with hundreds of people from the community, gathered for a vigil at the spot where he was murdered. Later, the crowd marched through the streets of the neighborhood with chants of “Black Lives Matter!” and “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now! And if we don’t get it? Shut it down!”Several demonstrations took place throughout the week, including one the following day as a crowd of hundreds blocked downtown traffic during rush hour, and another later in the week led by Shaw University students, a Historically Black College and University, to demand justice for Denkins.The family and the community are pressing forward with calls for justice, with several more actions planned for the upcoming week. The situation is quickly developing and will be covered in more detail in the upcoming issue of Workers World.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The beach volleyball team has competed as a non-conference team since it began in 2015.The addition of TCU and the University of Southern Mississippi will bring the CCSA’s count to 12 teams.Joining the CCSA, will give the Horned Frogs stronger competition for next season. In the future, the NCAA hopes to give automatic bids to the NCAA championships for conference champions.“It’s awesome to see where the program has gone, especially since I’ve been here from the beginning,”  senior captain Jillian Bergeson said. “To see now that all our hard work and effort is coming to flourish, and we get to join a conference. The competition is getting better. It’s awesome for TCU.”The Horned Frogs missed their chance to play in the NCAA beach volleyball championships last year with a No. 13 finish. This year, the team is still looking to compete for a title in Gulf Shores, Alabama.“Our goal is to try and get a bid through the regular season,” head coach Hector Gutierrez said. “But for me personally, as a coach, I want the girls to compete as best they can.”Gutierrez isn’t new to the CCSA, before he joined the Horned Frogs as head coach in November 2016, he was an assistant coach for Florida State. He helped guide the team to a No. 1 seed in the NCAA and a runner-up finish. A future in conference competitor next season.“It’s weird to coach and compete against an ex-team,” Gutierrez said. “It’s a good opportunity for us to see where we are at. We’re fortunate we can go there and play them.”Gutierrez said he’s grateful for the effort from indoor volleyball head coach Jill Kramer and associate athletics director Kim Johnson that led to the invitation.“We say thank you to everybody who has helped us,” Gutierrez said. “We’re really thankful and excited about what is going to happen.”last_img read more

Heathrow slots threat ‘critical’ – Collins

first_imgA DEBATE on what State assets are strategic and non strategic in relation to the remaining State shareholding in Aer Lingus, is now a matter of urgency, according to Deputy Niall Collins FF. Referring to the issue of the sale of State assets, the Limerick deputy said it has to be questioned why the remaining shareholding in the airline is now being viewed as a non-strategic State asset. “In my part of the country, Limerick and the Mid West, we regard the potential loss of the Heathrow landing slots as critical.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We have had enough of the flowery sympathetic speeches – we want the government to use its clout on the Board of the Company and insist that the Shannon-Heathrow route is maintained.“Jan O’Sullivan is now in Government and I want to hold her, her party and the Fine Gael Party to their word.  We need to maintain the Heathrow route for connectivity in the Mid West and in order to keep our region’s competitive edge, we need to keep the Shannon to Heathrow route and the only way to keep it is by maintaining our 25% shareholding in Aer Lingus”.Deputy Collins questioned the Minister for Public Expenditure in the Dail on why he is now rubbishing the importance of the Heathrow slots, and why the Labour Party appears to have changed its position, “A few years ago when his party was in opposition it nearly brought the House down over the closure of the Shannon to Heathrow route, with which I agreed, because it was critical. “I was glad that the then Government worked hard and put in board members, when they did not have them previously, and restored the Shannon to Heathrow route. “It is incumbent on the Minister to acknowledge that the Shannon to Heathrow route is a critical strategic State asset for the Mid West region”. Deputy Collins appealed to Minister Brendan Howlin to “see sense on this issue” and expressed his disappointment at the change of heart of the Labour Party.

The order was passed by a single bench of Justice Jayant Nath in a suit for defamation filed by Murthy seeking a decree for a sum of Rs. 2,50,00,000/-, against eighteen defendants with respect to their alleged defamatory posts/comments. Murthy had claimed that the defendants had circulated “sensational” posts against him, misleading a common man to draw a conclusion that he was in the habit of exploiting and harassing young women entrepreneurs. He claimed that such allegations were made purely out of spite as he had refused to invest in their business ideas. The bench prima facie observed that the defendants cannot be said to be misusing their freedom of speech. “The facts show that as per defendants No.1, 2, 15 and 16, they have had an unpleasant or perhaps more than unpleasant experience with the plaintiff. These facts, the said defendants and other defendants seek to place in public domain. Prima facie, it cannot be said that the said defendants have no case whatsoever or are misusing the freedom of speech to tarnish/defame the plaintiff.” Murthy had joined 18 individuals/ media portals as Defendant-parties for publication/ re-publication of three defamatory posts- first being started by Defendant no. 1; second by Defendant no. 2 and third- jointly by Defendants no. 15 and 16.He had sought injunction against reporters such as Dipti Nair and Pankaj Mishra, who had written an articles titled “Sexual Harassment – Underbelly of the Indian Startup ecosystem exposed” and “Mahesh Murthy in new sexual misconduct charges; Seedfund says had heard other rumours” respectively against Murthy.Others defendants included women such as author Rashmi Bansal, entrepreneurs Pooja Chauhan and Wamika Iyer, who had made allegations against him. Apart from them, publications such as FactorDaily, YourStory, and SheThePeople were arrayed as defendants. The court observed that the plea appeared to be a “bald plea”. “The plea appears to be a bald plea. There appears to be no co-relation between the publications done by defendant No. 1 in LinkedIn, defendant No. 2 in Indian ceo and defendants No. 15 and 16 in factordaily. Prima facie, the acts of alleged publications of defendants No. 1, 2, 15 and 16 appear to be distinct acts and do not prima facie justify joining all the defendants in one suit. Each of these publications appear to arise out of separate alleged incidents,” the court said. Moving back to the gag order, as regards the first two defendants the court observed, “it cannot be said that the said defendants are behaving in a malicious or mala fide manner. The plaintiff claims that defendants No.1 and 2 were disgruntled as the plaintiff rejected their business proposals. Hence, they took the step of publishing defamatory posts. This allegation of the plaintiff at this stage appears to be a bad plea.” Regarding the publication made by defendants No. 15 and 16 the court said, “the only plea of the plaintiff is that this relates to alleged events more than a decade old. The plaintiff admits that defendants No. 15 and 16 are successful individuals. There is no explanation given why defendants No. 15 and 16 have chosen to make the necessary publications. There appears to be no reason to conclude that the said defendants have acted in a mala fide manner.” The court said that it was not convinced, in the facts and circumstances of the case, to “fetter the narration” of alleged facts by the Defendants. In doing so the court has heavily relied upon the two-pronged “test of necessity and proportionality,” for restricting of free speech. Moreover, the court clarified that injunction order should only be passed if reasonable alternate methods would not prevent the risk. Finally stating that the plaint appeared to be a “hotch potch” and that Murthy had failed to make out a prima facie case against the Defendants the court held, “The said defendants have a right to exercise their right of freedom of speech. If these incidents and claims of the said defendants are in trial proved to be false, the plaintiff would have a right to claim damages.”The Court disposed of the interim applications, vacating the injunction orders, saying :”The plaintiff has failed to make out a prima facie case. In my opinion, balance of convenience is also not in favour of the plaintiff”.  Recently, the Bombay High Court quashed the criminal proceedings pending against Murthy on allegations of outraging the modesty of a woman 14 years ago on the grounds of limitation, noting that continuance of the said proceedings would be an abuse of process of law.

5 dead in apparent murder-suicide in San Diego

first_imgRichard_Lawrence_Photo/iStock(SAN DIEGO) — Five family members are dead, and another is undergoing emergency surgery following a shooting at a San Diego home, just a day after one of the victims obtained a restraining order against the alleged suspect.“We are not looking for a suspect. This was a domestic dispute involving one family,” San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said during a press conference Saturday.A 31-year-old male, a 29-year-old female and a 3-year-old boy were pronounced dead at the scene. Three other children were rushed to a local hospital where two have been pronounced dead and a third is in “very critical condition,” police said. All of the young victims were the children of the deceased adults.Around 6:49 local time Saturday morning, police said they received a 911 call from the residence, but no one was on the line. The dispatcher told authorities that an argument could be heard in the background and someone was told to leave the house.While officers were on their way to the home, a neighbor called 911 to say he heard an argument and what he thought was a nail gun firing.When San Diego police arrived on the scene, officers observed a small child covered in blood through the window. Police said the male suspect came over to the home Saturday morning, where an argument ensued and the altercation turned deadly. He then, police said, turned the gun on himself.“As you can imagine, I’ve been doing this almost 32 years, these are the toughest calls you can respond to,” Nisleit said during the press conference. “This job, you do it long enough, unfortunately, you see incidents like this. Any time you go to a child death, whether it be a natural or in this case, a criminal act, your mind is not meant to filter that kind of information.”Nisleit said officers responded to a domestic-type disturbance at the same address two weeks ago over an argument over property. He said the couple had been separated for “some time,” and they were going through some type of divorce process.During that incident with police, officers gave the mother information on how to obtain a restraining order. San Diego Police Lt. Matt Dobbs said she obtained it Friday. While it remains unclear if the father was formally served the restraining order, “we do believe the suspect was aware of it.”At the request of family, police are not releasing the victims’ names or additional information about them at this time.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
