The Indian cabinet unanimously said the royalties related to the deal need to be looked at before the purchase can be approved, and “such a decision should not be taken in a hurry”, one minister added.The move causes further frustration for Cairn and Vedanta, who first agreed what could be India’s biggest oil and gas deal last August and had expected the government to make a final decision in a matter of days.Cairn has set an internal deadline of 15 April to secure the deal. No timetable has been set for the Indian committee investigation. Cairn’s partner in India, state-run ONGC, currently pays all royalties on its oil operations, but India has been pushing to share the royalty burden between ONGC and Cairn. Both Cairn and Vedanta oppose the move. “We will continue to work with the government of India in a constructive fashion to secure all the necessary conditions and approvals,” said a Cairn spokesperson in London last night.Vedanta declined to comment. It issued a statement yesterday saying that its offer would open on 11 April and close on 30 April regardless. “It is surprising that they are going ahead with the open offer, because if the government gives a conditional acceptance, then it will be value-destructive for Vedanta,” said Deepak Pareek, sector analyst at Mumbai brokerage Prabhudas Lilladher.The news knocked both companies’ shares, with Cairn closing down 2.8 per cent at 456.4p and Vedanta losing 0.8 per cent to £24.97. whatsapp Share whatsapp Wednesday 6 April 2011 7:57 pm KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

European Rugby Champions Cup Tries of the Week – Round 1

jklhvrtn

first_imgTuesday Oct 21, 2014 European Rugby Champions Cup Tries of the Week – Round 1 Some great tries were scored in the opening round of the new European Rugby Champions Cup, as the tournament picked up from where the Heineken Cup left off, capturing the heart and minds of fans. Here’s a look at the best tries from Round 1. Harlequins’ Danny Care scored the first try of the new look tournament, helping his side to a 25-9 Pool 2 win over Castres at the Twickenham Stoop on Friday night.Those were just some of the 450 points that the Champions Cup racked up, with an average of 4.7 tries being scored per match over the course of the 10 matches on the inaugural weekend.As seen in the previous post, Munster pulled off a dramatic win on the road, the only team to do so as they beat Sale Sharks away from home. Saracens, Glasgow Warriors and Ospreys were the top performers of the weekend, all recording bonus-point victories in their fixtures.In one of the tries of the round, Ulster’s Tommy Bowe notched up his 25th in Europe in total, after a sweeping move as part of the losing cause against Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.Zac Guildford scored an excellent try for Clermont against Saracens, while Glasgow Warriors’ 37-10 victory over Bath was surely the win of the weekend. One of the best individual efforts came from Christian Wade, who showed again that one on one he is lethal.Those are just a few moments that stood out after round one.

The project reveals an idea of architecture based on archetypes as a trend-proof horizon. The archetype for home is shelter. You can make a shelter with a fence, a wall, a canopy; but you still can’t get a house.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanTwo elements, a roof and a wall, define the domestic space. Starting from the house icon we tried to rotate the roof. This single move added three more elements: a patio and two porches.Save this picture!SchemeDesign process is fundamentally rooted on the analysis of climate and the contexts. Information on ground temperature during the year; wind’s main direction and strength; sun shading over the seasons and presence of water (rain and aquifer) affects the design mindset.Save this picture!© Alberto SinigagliaContext (both at the urban scale and the neighbour) and site layout were studied in order to control external factors.The main goals that the clients wanted to achieve were: privacy of their home; specific functions related to their habits such as a big porch and a playroom.Save this picture!© Alberto SinigagliaWe designed a compact ground floor on the golden section since we wanted a figure as much stable as possible. The roof is conceived like a folded sheet of paper and it is superimposed on the mass of the white wall.Living room faces south and looks to a patio. Rooms are in the northern part. An attic floor hosts a playroom and a guest room.Save this picture!© Alberto SinigagliaThe patio is a stone garden that hosts a non-stop natural light show. Here a water basin lies underneath a gravel floor supported by a steel structure.Interiors are in direct visual and physical contact with the gardens. The superimposition effect its clear also from inside.During summer solstice the big east-west oriented roof shades over the main outdoor living areas and windows. In winter time the sun enters inside and lights the patio. Wide openings facing south let the sun fulfil the living even in december.Airflow design and the good transpiration of a straw-bale wall with lime render help to avoid tools and technology.The basin and the foundations are made in reinforced concrete. Ground floor insulation is a layer of recycled crushed foam-glass on a geotextile membrane laid directly on subsoil to avoid rising damp.Save this picture!© Alberto SinigagliaIn this building we tried to reduce constructive solution to the very few that the project needed. As a single architectural entity the perimeter wall is entirely made with straw-bales. We would like to get the continuity of the perimeter and prove the versatility of the material if carefully protected.The main wooden structure (for both the perimeter wall and the roof) is filled up with straw-bales to maximise the level of insulation. A 30mm lime render finished with silicate paint lets the whole wall transpires.Save this picture!SectionsThe straw wall has also an high level of fire resistance, the same thickness of a C.A. wall stands less.Save this picture!© Alberto SinigagliaProject gallerySee allShow lessThree Principles of Architecture as Revealed by Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’ArticlesHammam and Apartements in Patumbah-Park / Miller & MarantaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Manufacturers: Geocell Schaumglas, RÖFIX, Mobilificio Gili Umberto di Gili Giancarlo & C, Mozzone fratelli s.r.llast_img read more

Water and solar management was part of the design of the house, south-facing facade allows for a full-day solar irradiation for the pool, vents on both sides of the house, and concrete aileron that blocks direct-sunlight into the house, help lower heat gain and air conditioning needs.The Rooftop is a clean, non-hydrocarbon releasing surface, ideal for rainwater harvesting. Rain collected on the 220 m2 surface is collected through 2 pluvia outlets, a cast-in-concrete siphonic piping and sent to a rainwater filter and the first flush, this separates the most polluted rain from the rest, which is the collected in a 4,000-gallon rainwater tank. Once it starts to accumulate, a 20 gpm potabilization system turns it into clean potable water and stores it in the main water cistern. Oaxtepec records an average of 37.5 in of rainfall per year.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueOnce the potable water is used in household services, the sanitary drainage collects it towards the house’s waste-water treatment plant, which turns it into clean treated water and stores it in a separate tank, used for irrigation and non-potable water need, if this tank overflows it gets infiltrated into the ground. The house does not discharge to the municipal drainage. Potable water is heated with solar-thermal equipment, and the pool is maintained with a salt based disinfectant.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueEnergy-Wise, we installed 15 PV panels, with room for 30 more, either solar-thermal or PV and runs 100% of its power needs on renewable energy.

Intoxication culture and the working class

jklhvrtn

first_imgIntoxication culture is made up of the social cues and forces which push workers and oppressed people into using drugs or alcohol. Our entire society — U.S. society — has been drowned in this intoxication. Whether cis or trans, straight or queer, everyone is impacted by the overwhelming forces that push us into using and abusing drugs and alcohol.Available in free download at workers.org/books.The bourgeoisie depend on people drowning their problems in substances in order to avoid reaching the conclusion that their problems are the result of the bourgeoisie.This is especially true in the queer community, where queer people are 2 to 4 times more likely to use and abuse substances than their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts. This happens because of anti-queer and anti-trans oppressions. (tinyurl.com/3h6rpryt)The incidence of drug and alcohol abuse rises in people who have experienced anti-queer and anti-trans harassment or violent incidents. For example, people who have experienced anti-trans verbal abuse in schools were about 35% more likely to abuse substances, and those who experienced physical abuse were about 40% more likely.Oppression of queer and trans people is a direct factor behind drug abuse in queer communities. But corporations continue to feed on our abuse of legal substances like alcohol products. Almost all major Pride events in the U.S. are sponsored by alcohol companies. Despite the fact that June’s Pride-themed events should be welcoming to everyone — the sober and the underaged included — substance-abuse corporations continue to use Pride as a marketing gimmick.Targeted corporate advertising campaigns knowingly prey on and are extremely destructive in our community. Yet few queer mainstream organizations and events call this advertisement out, thinking that corporate dollars guarantee survival.Rainbow capitalism fuels intoxication cultureIt is no surprise that corporations have begun to rebrand themselves as “diverse and inclusive” and to emphasize that their products “are for everyone.” This is done to stay competitive in attracting the most buyers for their products in the capitalist dog-eat-dog race of profit-making for the corporations and the bosses.Companies have developed a barrage of alcohol advertisements geared towards the LGBTQ+ population. There are rainbow liquor bottles, rainbow shot glasses, beer commercials featuring queer couples — the works.This campaign shifts into overdrive during Pride month. In large cities, you won’t be able to attend a major Pride event without seeing advertisements for Bud Light, Absolut or another alcohol company. In Boston and Chicago, Bud Light is one the top sponsors of Pride.In smaller cities, it has become more common to attend Pride festivals and come face-to-face with liquor trucks, beer tents and other advertisements of alcohol. In some places, there are many all-night Pride parties with seemingly endless amounts of alcohol as well as illicit drugs. Many of these events end up with people suffering from alcohol poisoning or other dangerous side effects of excessive drinking.There is no denying that the advertising onslaught puts temptation right in the face of many working-class LGBTQ+ people suffering from “minority stress” — the day-to-day struggle of being discriminated against and outright oppressed.There is a direct correlation between the stress of LGBTQ+ oppression because of outright discrimination and dehumanization — as well as the lack of resources for LGBTQ+ people — and the move to self-medication through drinking and drug use.Alcohol companies understand this and profit off the oppression of LGBTQ+ people, perpetuating intoxication culture, creating more substance-abuse issues in the LGBTQ+ population and pocketing more money. Unrelenting corporate pursuit of profits directly contributes to the continued suffering of an oppressed group.Hard drug usage soaring in the LGBTQ+ populationNot only is alcohol and alcoholism a growing problem for queer/trans people, hard drugs such as crystal meth have become an abuse epidemic. Statistically, gay men are four times as likely to try crystal meth than heterosexual men. Addiction rates in general are alarmingly high in the LGBTQ+ community, due to the heavy weight of day-to-day oppression that is suffocating all of us. Many queer/trans people spiral into drug-induced escapism, which temporarily frees people from the fear and anxiety about being judged or mistreated by a violent, heteronormative society.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have documented that use of drugs and alcohol statistically lead to higher rates for HIV/AIDS and other STDs, fueling the ongoing epidemic of HIV/AIDS in the LGBTQ+ community. Though the epidemic is not as rampant as 35 years ago, the deadly disease still ravages oppressed communities and people, particularly working-class Black trans women.Sobriety and socialismThe connection between intoxication culture and death is a vicious cycle that capitalism perpetuates through direct attack and co-optation. Unfortunately, that co-opting is present in Pride.In the face of this ongoing conflict, some Pride festivals have turned to sober Pride. This can include not allowing or selling any alcohol on the premises, along with harm-reduction staff on site, who have Narcan to treat drug overdoses and provide resources on sobriety and safe drug use.These Pride events and other similar LGBTQ+ events are being led by a new wave of queer/trans socialists committed to building a socialist revolution that is queer-led, trans-led and based around community care and solidarity.These LGBTQ+ socialists have realized that capitalism will not bring liberation or a solution to any problem, but will only fuel more chaos, more intoxication culture and leave more oppressed people and workers dead in its wake.They know that it will be socialism that deals the death blow to intoxication culture.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
