Le Monticole is the name of a mixed project consisting in building on the same site: 36 social housing units, a media library, medical office spaces, a restaurant and a car park.Save this picture!© Philippe ContiSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Philippe ContiWe deliberately chose to build with a local, durable and noble material: solid stone. Because this project is essential for Plan d’Aou and the northern districts of Marseille in terms of program, it had to be exemplary in terms of architecture and quality. We chose the Beaulieu stone, which is a stone from Provence, extracted and cut in a local quarry by the company PROROCH and laid by the company CPMG.Save this picture!© Philippe ContiSave this picture!© Philippe ContiThus, we encourage a small economic sector to perpetuate their local skills and know-how. We made the choice of sustainability because we know that a well thought  building means encouraging its good maintenance and its appropriation by the various users and therefore in the end becomes an object that will be respected and will age well. Finally, not spending unnecessary money to bury cars in an underground parking space gave us the freedom to use this material and give the project all the chances to succeed economically, culturally and to be an example  of sustainability.Save this picture!© Philippe ContiThis choice is also one of simplicity: simplicity of facade design, simplicity of installation, simplicity of maintenance. But the choice of such a material, beyond the recognized qualities, notably good thermal inertia, confers a nobility to the places which has its importance in a district with a declared urban ambition and in full renovation. Starting from the current regulations, solid stone has shown, from building site to building site, its adaptation to contemporary techniques.Save this picture!© Philippe ContiArchitectural devices in stone are passive solutions allowing the use of renewable resources in a direct way. Devices allowing to valorize its resources were developed during the pre-industrial era by vernacular societies. Thus, in terms of grey energy and carbon balance, the results are very positive and compensate for the energy used for extraction, transport and installation, especially when the quarry is so close to the site!Save this picture!© Philippe ContiProject gallerySee allShow less”It is a Divine Feeling When You Can Leave the First Mark on the Ground”: In Convers…Interviews17 Hotels and Cabins Surrounded by NatureArticlesProject locationAddress:Marsella, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

Old Mobiles = Money For Students & Charity

Recycling experts Redeem have teamed up with the student mobile service Dot Mobile to create a solution that will give students a bit of cash in their pockets thanks to their new recycling programme which allows customers to exchange their old mobiles for up to £100.The new service means that students can trade-in their old handsets and receive a cheque to spend on whatever they please – new mobile, new text books, new wardrobe… They can even donate their cash from their mobiles to charity. Dot Mobile is working with Kids Company, a children’s charity dedicated to helping vulnerable children on an emotional and practical level. All they have to do is get hold of a freepost envelope from a member of the dot crew on campus, by visiting www.dotmobile.co.uk/recycle or by calling 0870 350 1853.Not only will students be able to earn cash and help a worthwhile cause they can give themselves a pat on the back for benefiting the environment at the same time. When old mobiles are thrown in the bin they end up in landfill sites around the country where the toxic chemicals they contain can leak into the surrounding soil causing pollution and damaging plant and wildlife. There is also unwelcome activity at the top of the site where the decomposing waste produces the harmful greenhouse gases carbon dioxide and methane. By recycling and reducing the amount of waste going to landfill means we are doing our bit for climate change too.To find out more about dot mobile and if we’re on your campus, go to www.dotmobile.co.uk– ends – – 17th November –About dot / notes to editorsDot mobile is the UK’s first mobile service developed specifically for students. The service launched in September 2005 and can be found online or in 60 universities across the UK. Dot offers simple, good value tariffs, the latest handsets and a service that works the way students want it to. You can manage your account online, receive free usage text alerts and use your flexible monthly bundle of units for calls, texts or advanced messaging. We use the Vodafone network to ensure great coverage and we’re also the exclusive mobile phone partner of NUS Extra.For further information please contact:Katrine PearsonRedeem(01324) [email protected] Jeanesdot [email protected] PearsonPublic Relations ManagerRedeem plc31-37 Etna RoadFalkirk, FK2 9EGt: +44 (0)1324 678 903f: +44 (0)1324 678 904e: [email protected] 9001:2000 (BM Trada certificate no. 2324) | ISO 14001:2004 (LRQA certificate no.

After drawing pension for nearly 8 years, Coal India Ltd stopped his pension in 2013 stating that he had not opted for the Family Coal Mines Pension Scheme of 1998. He was also asked to refund an amount to the tune of Rs 8 lakhs which was drawn by him.Challenging the stoppage of pension and the demand for refund, B N Mishra approached the Patna High Court in 2014. The High Court dismissed the writ petition on the ground of lack of territorial jurisdiction. The HC referred to the fact that he had earlier filed a writ petition in the Patna High Court in 2006 seeking refund of an amount of Rs.1,33,559/ in his pension account. That writ petition was dismissed citing lack of territorial jurisdiction. Following that, he had approached the High Court of Jharkhand, within whose jurisdiction his pension authority was situated. Pointing out this aspect, the High Court dismissed the writ petition filed in 2014 observing that he had submitted himself to the jurisdiction of Jharkhand High Court.During the pendency of the proceedings, B N Mishra died and his wife, Shanti Mishra was substituted as the petitioner.Supreme Court’s viewDisagreeing with the view taken by the High Court, the Supreme Court noted that the pensioner was residing at Darbhanga, Bihar, after his retirement and received pension there for over eight years. The SC further noted that as per Article 226(2) of the Constitution, if a part of the cause of action arises at a place, writ petition can be maintained there.”Form the facts of the present case, we are of the considered opinion that part of cause of action has arisen within the territorial jurisdiction of Patna High Court. The deceased petitioner was continuously receiving pension for the last 08 years in his saving bank account in State Bank of India, Darbhanga. The  stoppage of pension of late B.N. Mishra affected him at his native place, he being deprived of the benefit of pension which he was receiving from his employer.Stoppage of pension gave a cause of action, which arose at the place where the petitioner was continuously receiving the pension.We, thus, are of the view that the view of the learned Single Judge as well as the Division Bench holding the writ petition not maintainable on the ground of lack of territorial jurisdiction was completely erroneous and has caused immense hardship to the petitioner”, observed the bench.The causes of action for the writ filed in 2006 and 2014 were totally different, the court further noted. Therefore, the HC erred in dismissing the second writ petition stating that he had submitted himself to Jharkhand High Court.Forum non conveniensThe respondent raised an argument of forum non conveniens by saying that the previous writ petition filed by him in the Jharkhand High Court was still pending.”For a retired employee convenience is to prosecute his case at the place where he belonged to and was getting pension”, the bench observed in this regard.”Stoppage of pension and asking for refund of more than Rs. 08 lakhs amount had serious adverse effect on the petitioner, who was staying at his native place Darbhanga. A retired employee, who is receiving pension, cannot be asked to go to another court to file the writ petition, when he has a cause of action for filing a writ petition in Patna High Court”, the judgment added.The court referred to precedents such as Kusum Ingots & Alloys Ltd. Vs. Union of India and Anr., (2004) 6 SCC 254, Nawal Kishore Sharma Vs. Union of India and Ors., (2014) 9 SCC 329The Court allowed the appeal and revived the writ petition before the High Court.Also, taking note of the fact that the petitioner before the SC was the widow of the original petitioner who is now without the support of family pension, the apex court ordered the grant of provisional pension to her,  which will be subject tofinal decision in the writ petition.Case Details :Title : Shanti Devi Alias Shanti Mishra v Union of India and others (Civil Appeal 3630 of 2020)Coram : Justices Ashok Bhushan, R Subhash Reddy and M R ShahAppearances: Arvind Kumar Gupta, for appellant; Sreekumar C.N., Kaustubh Shukla, Uddyam Mukherjee for respondentsClick here to read/download judgment Read JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more

Default Bail Cannot Be Denied To Accused Just Because He Filed Application U/S 439 Instead of 167(2) CrPC : Delhi High Court

The court held that in the instant case, although the accused had submitted his application for bail under Section 439 CrPC, he had ‘indicated’ as required under the Proviso(a) to Section 167(2) of CrPC that he was prepared to furnish bail, and therefore “in substance, the said condition is met”. The bench of Justice Vibhu Bakhru further expounded that the Supreme Court too has explained on a number of occasions that the Proviso (a) to Section 167(2) CrPC is intrinsically linked to the right under Article 21 of the Constitution of India that “no person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to the procedure established by law”. Justice Bakhru stated that, “since the Section embodies a safeguard that circumscribes the power to detain an accused pending investigation, it would not be apposite to curtail the same on technicalities.” The brief facts of the case were that the bail applicant alongwith his two other accomplices were accused of robbing the complainant of his mobile phone and shooting him in the leg and absconding on being confronted by the complainant. They were booked under Sections 457/380/34 of IPC. The chargesheet in the case was filed beyond the period of 60 days which the Prosecution submitted was on account of Covid-19. The petitioner had filed his first bail application before the Trial Court on 27.05.2020 wherein he stated that he was arrested in another case relating to FIR No.10/2020 registered with PS Alipur and had been falsely implicated in the said case, and further stated that he had no concern with the alleged offences, yet the police officials had arrested him. He expressly stated that he is ready to furnish sound surety to the satisfaction of the Trial Court and undertook to produce himself before the Trial Court as and when directed. However, the Trial Court had rejected the application considering the ‘seriousness of allegations’. The petitioner moved his second bail application on 08.06.2020 which was also dismissed by the Trial Court on 08.06.2020. Thereafter, the petitioner moved a bail application before the High Court which was listed on 17.09.2020, however, the same was withdrawn with liberty to approach the Trial Court as in the meantime, the chargesheet had been filed on 14.09.2020. The court noted that the petitioner had been in custody for almost eleven months with no recoveries effected from him. Further the petitioner’s disclosure statement admitting to be involved in the incident along with his two accomplices was also held to be of little value as the complainant had not identified one of the named accomplices as an accused involved in the incident. The court further noted that, according to the Investigation Officer, who had joined the proceedings, the petitioner was riding the motorcycle and the two other accused were sitting behind him on the motorcycle and the petitioner was not the accused who had shot the complainant. Further, the investigation in the matter was complete. Referring to the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Rakesh Kumar Paul v. State of Assam: (2017) 15 SCC 67, the Justice Bakhru said that, in that case too, the petitioner had applied for a regular bail before the Gauhati High Court, but had not made any specific application for default bail, however, the court had noted that the accused had mentioned that the statutory period for filing the chargesheet had expired and he had also argued the issue orally. The Supreme Court here had held that the petitioner had made an application for default bail, if not in writing, then orally.

15-year-old North Carolina girl found safe following Amber Alert

first_imgNorth Carolina Department of Public Safety(FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.) — A missing 15-year-old girl in North Carolina has been found after an Amber Alert was issued earlier in the day.The North Carolina Department of Public Safety sent out an Amber Alert for Nevia Maihyanna Nixon, of Fayetteville, on Thursday morning. Nixon was last seen on Sept. 25 along the 600 block of Welsh Place, according to police. She was reported as a runaway the next day and Fayetteville police initially issued a “runaway/missing person” notice about her, but the case has since been upgraded to an Amber Alert.The Fayetteville Police Department tweeted Thursday night that Nixon had been found “safe and unharmed.”Sgt. Ranessa Wallace, spokeswoman for Fayetteville police, told ABC News prior to Nixon being found that the department received “new information that raised concern, as well as she hadn’t reached out to family members or friends, so that caused us to raise it to the level of an Amber Alert.”She said it was a possibility that Nixon is in danger.“We can’t rule it out,” Wallace said.Wallace would not say what information police received or where the information came from.She did note that there had not been a confirmed sighting of Nixon since her disappearance.Nevia’s father, Carton Adams, had pleaded for her return, saying she is a loving girl. Adams said she spends a lot of time on social media, but has not posted anything since Sept. 25.“I would like to keep positive and believe that my baby is not in any danger, but she loves her family and Nevi would have reached out and came home or said something,” he told Durham ABC station WTVD-TV.
