Sited in one of the quieter pockets in the heart of Chennai, with close linkage to major arterial roads that run through the city, this corner plot enjoys the position of being one of the first prominent residential buildings on entering the neighbourhood, garnering attention while being passed by.Save this picture!Section”Sharing and integrity defines a community, but valuing the presence of every individual within fulfils a community living”.The intent emphasizes the need to create a small diverse community within the building.The building’s 17,000 square feet floor area facilitates 11 exclusive apartments, five of which are spacious 3-Bedroom Duplexes; six are compact 3-Bedroom units, with the density limitations determined by the lot’s size and location.Save this picture!© Prem, Rajan GeroEach dwelling incepts a sense of place to its own resident varying by size, volume, orientation and position within the building. These versatile dwellings fused together to sustain the integrity, conceiving a pure mass to perceive the community in totality, was the challenge at hand.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe versatile nature of each dwelling being embraced on the form evolution by consciously intervening the pure geometry. Marginally twisting the alternative floor masses across the street axis strengthens the perception of distinct edges to demonstrate prominence of every dwelling, the building uses the opportunity to create a powerful visual statement, capitalizing on the views from the junction.Save this picture!© Prem, Rajan GeroA strong visual anchor, a defined exposed concrete mass seeded to the ground on one quadrant of the building strengthen the integrity as an efficiently weaved vertical transition gracefully intertwine every dwelling within. It creates a rich visual landmark from the intersection, by holding the diverse masses together, engaging with the ground plane and vanishing towards the sky.Save this picture!DiagramTo heighten the sense of identity, another layer of material contrast, a louvered mass plugged into the volume along the marginally twisted axis, creating a dramatic spatial demarcation along the exterior, where the light and shade creating dynamic special experience internally, varying in every unit. The double-height living volumes in the duplexes take advantage of these louvered staggering masses that create changing patterns on the wall surfaces, through the day.Save this picture!DiagramThe consciously created voids allow each unit to enjoy the views out onto two sides of the building, allowing for well-ventilated and amply lit homes. The angular floor plates create recesses and cantilevers in the floors above and below, giving rise to shaded belts along the threshold of the building, climatically responding to the context.Save this picture!© Prem, Rajan GeroResidential buildings tend to focus more on the living spaces, leaving little thought for opportunities for community interaction. Here, entrances to all units face each other and semi-private entry courts have been created, that are bathed in light from the adjacent light wells, serving as luxurious foyers for chance interaction between neighbours and others.Save this picture!ElevationBy placing the building raised above the ground, the volume provides a relief from the immediate context and wrapped with void, allows direct access to the habitats and parking, creating an external perception which allows the mass to float and define a strong skyline against the universal backdrop.Project gallerySee allShow lessSuppakids / ROKSelected ProjectsPhotography Panels Become “Pop-Up Habitats” in this Exhibition by People’s Architect…Architecture NewsProject locationAddress:Chennai, Tamil Nadu, IndiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

16 alleged child predators used social media to lure kids for sex throughout New Jersey

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(NEWARK, N.J.) — Sixteen men were arrested on Wednesday in New Jersey where a statewide crackdown by multiple state law enforcement agencies on child sexual exploitation was called, “Operation Home Alone.”The men — including a Ridgewood, New Jersey, police officer, a high school teacher at the High School of Computers and Technology in the Bronx, New York, and drivers for Uber and Lyft — were charged with luring and attempted sexual assault for allegedly using popular social media sites to identify children to groom for assault.The men were really communicating with undercover investigators posing as children as part of a sting operation that New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said highlighted “a new breed” of child predator.“In the past child predators used to stalk children at playgrounds, at school yards, at shopping malls. Now they lurk on social media,” Grewal said a news conference announcing the charges.Prosecutors said the men — ages between 28 to 55 — used social media websites, chat apps and gaming apps including Kik, Skout, Grindr, Tinder, MeetMe, Adam4Adam, Fortnite, Minecraft and Hot or Not to engage with underage boys and girls.NJ Office of the Attorney GeneralOnce chatting began, the undercover officers identified themselves as underage girls or boys that were 14- or 15-years-old. Despite that information, the men allegedly continued the conversations about sex and made arrangements to meet the “children” for sex.“One of the unfortunate consequences of the internet is the potential opportunities created for the depraved members of our society to prey on vulnerable victims,” said FBI Newark Special Agent-in-Charge Gregory W. Ehrie.The accused sexual predators, like Police Officer Peter Tuchol Jr., teacher Kevin Roth, traveling minister Roger Arroyo and dental hygienist Dariush Ghamarnezhad, were variously charged with second-degree luring and attempted sexual assault on a minor, third-degree debauching morals of a child. Prosecutor said, if convicted of the second-degree charges, they face between five to 10 years in prison with a fine of up to $150,000.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Lessons from France on the Myths of Same-Sex Marriage

first_imgPublic Discourse 4 June 2013If the recent French mobilizations against same-sex marriage have taught us anything, it’s this: The LGBT lobby has misrepresented its cause’s relationship to time and history. Illinois Democrat Greg Harris stated in a National Public Radio piece what the lobby has been claiming for years:Folks know this will be a vote that history will remember . . . And I think a lot of folks are deciding they’re going to want to be remembered on the right side of history.The proponents of same-sex marriage like polls. A Gallup poll published in mid-May showed public support for their cause rising from 27 percent in 1996 to 53 percent this year. Pew’s survey data reflect a more modest rise, from 35 percent in 2001 to 49 percent in 2013, but the upward march is still clear. In April 2013, the Williams Institute published a state-by-state analysis that reflected a steady growth in the number of states, such as New York, in which more than 50 percent of respondents supported same-sex marriage.Less often mentioned are certain caveats in all these polls. For instance, in Gallup’s poll respondents were asked to choose between supporting or opposing same-sex marriage, without being offered a third option such as civil unions. The data from the Williams Institute show that liberal California is still only at 50 percent for same-sex marriage, perhaps because the state has domestic partnerships already. Minnesota residents only supported same-sex marriage by 43 percent, despite their popular vote to reject a constitutional ban in 2012 and despite the legislature’s hurried process of legalizing it in the state.Nevertheless, two assumptions have determined the way pundits have interpreted these data.One assumption is that the increase in support will be consistent over time rather than fickle. We can name this the Inevitability Assumption, a quasi-Marxian or at least Hegelian view that History is beckoning in one direction and there will be no turning back.The second assumption is that more people accept same-sex marriage because they have more reliable information about what it entails. This is the Enlightenment Assumption, the notion that there is a transcendental benevolence in same-sex marriage, which can rely on the good and the true, if not the beautiful, to be vindicated by the diffusion of knowledge.These assumptions are in fact fallacies. More than any other populace, the French have laid them bare with their four massive “manifs” or mobilizations (November 17, January 13, March 24, and May 26).These four mobilizations are credited as the largest mass uprising in France since the famous revolts of May 1968. As many as 60 percent of French respondents supported same-sex marriage in the fall of 2012, but the level of support now hovers around only 39 percent, with 54 percent supporting “civil unions” only. It is no wonder that the French government has had to shield itself and its LGBT benefactors from outrage with an increasingly totalitarian modus operandi encompassing tear gas and other familiar police-state tactics.The French resistance to same-sex marriage has demonstrated that an ostensibly progressive nation that had little issue with homosexuality as a moral question can change its mind, not based on ignorance of reality, but based on knowing more about what same-sex marriage really means. Sorry, LGBT lobby, the French are sending your soufflé back to the kitchen.Fallacy #1: The Inevitability AssumptionFrance proves that no opinion trend on any graph can be taken for granted as perpetual. In the United States we knew this already; we simply weren’t aware that we knew it. We know from the abortion debate that what seems like a steady march of acceptance can actually grind to a halt or reverse.The Gallup polls on abortion show how unpredictable the trends in opinion can be, for the number of “pro-choice” Americans peaked in 1996 at 56 percent, then declined to 45 percent today, while pro-life opinion gained significant ground, albeit in fits and starts (only 33 percent of Americans were pro-life in 1996, compared to 48 percent today).If we take a step back and examine how the international LGBT lobby has fought for same-sex marriage, we see that the lobby’s leaders must be equally aware that nothing is inevitable about acceptance of same-sex marriage, regardless of what they say publicly. Rather than patience, haste has characterized their tactics.Fallacy #2: The Enlightenment AssumptionRather than maximize people’s access to information about the impact of same-sex parenting, the lobby has sought to suppress journalistic and academic investigations into areas such as surrogacy, which give people pause with time and reflection. While it is impossible to know the inner thoughts of people running advocacy groups, it is reasonable to conclude that they opt to force same-sex marriage and same-sex parenting through the legislatures and courts at lightning speed, before people have the chance to stop and think about what they are signing up for. (The recent examples of California and Illinois are telling; in both states the large number of people who have gay friends did not lead to easy passage of same-sex marriage, but rather may have triggered a backlash resulting in California’s Proposition 8 and the failure of same-sex marriage last week in the Illinois legislature.)http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2013/06/10293/?utm_source=RTA+Lopez+Myths+Same-Sex+Marriage&utm_campaign=winstorg&utm_medium=emaillast_img read more

Mourinho Expects Didier Drogba to Make Chelsea Return

first_imgThe Ivorian has been linked with a move back to Chelsea this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to in a quality striker.Jose Mourinho believes that Didier Drogba will return to Chelsea one day, saying that the Ivorian is a important figure in the clubs history, Goal.com reports.Drogba has been linked with a move back to Stamford Bridge this summer, with Jose Mourinho on the look out for a top class striker to lead the line at the Blues next season.The Ivorian spent eight highly successful seasons at Chelsea, winning three Premier League titles and also winning the Champions League during his final appearances for the club.Drogba is now playing for Turkish club Galatasaray but Mourinho believes that the striker will be back at Stamford Bridge in some capacity in the future.“He is a player and he is a winner and he enjoys his game and I almost had a heart attack because of him,” Mourinho told the Telegraph. “Let him enjoy a good couple of years of football but, after that, he is loved in this club by everyone and that’s very, very normal. I think one day he will have a Chelsea future.”Mourinho is desperate to sign a top quality striker this summer, with Wayne Rooney thought to be his main transfer target.However, if Chelsea do miss out on Rooney, Mourinho may consider bringing Drogba back to the club as a short term solution to the Blues problems up-front.last_img read more
