Maximising its rural setting, Green Orchard is designed in the round, with all four elevations taking advantage of views out and access to the garden.The exterior is clad in an intelligent skin of bespoke full-height panels, which are electronically motorised to slide open fully. The panels are highly insulated and allow the occupants to control and vary the thermal performance of the house depending on the time of the day and year. An aluminium coating reflects the surrounding gardens ensuring that the house recedes into its setting.Save this picture!Courtesy of Paul Archer DesignThe house and landscape have been designed with specific intention to reduce the consumption and requirement for energy: a wood-burning Stuv stove is the only heat source; water is supplied by a 93 metre bore hole; thermal solar panels on the roof yield heating for 80% of the house’s water; and photovoltaics provide all electric use when taken over the yearly cycle.Save this picture!Courtesy of Paul Archer DesignWhilst unashamedly contemporary in its design, harnessing the latest in green technology, Green Orchard is a sensitive response to its location, integrating appropriate materials and functional details to create an innovative and tangible solution to current environmental issues, and presenting a way forward in designing for a sustainable future.Save this picture!Gorund Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessMichael Van Valkenburgh Associates (MVVA) Chosen as Landscape Architect for Menil Co…ArticlesBarranco No. 436 / JSªSelected Projects Share Green Orchard / Paul Archer Design Green Orchard / Paul Archer DesignSave this projectSaveGreen Orchard / Paul Archer DesignSave this picture!Courtesy of Paul Archer DesignHouses•United Kingdom Architects: Paul Archer Design Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Projects Copy “COPY” Photographs: Courtesy of Paul Archer Design+ 11 Share United Kingdom Area: 200 m² Area: 200 m² Photographs Houses CopyAbout this officePaul Archer DesignOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited KingdomPublished on July 08, 2013Cite: “Green Orchard / Paul Archer Design” 08 Jul 2013.

Last year £57.1 million was spent in the UK buying 21.5 million Mother’s Day cards, yet very few charities offer such cards, primarily because of the risk of buying stock.Charity Greetings founder Craig Hartzel said: “The greetings card industry is worth £1.48 billion per year. Charities should be taking their cut all year round, not just at Christmas.“The only problem is that it is very expensive to buy stock and fulfil demand and lots of charities simply can’t take on that extra burden. We wanted to provide a solution to this problem and believe that Charity Greetings has done just that.”Hartzel, who has 11 years experience selling cards online, added that partner charities don’t have to worry about stock or fulfilment using his company’s system. The company provides each charity with a personalised online cards store that integrates with their website. Charities already working with Charity Greetings include the Alzheimer’s Society, Dogs Trust, Cats Protection, and Sightsavers.Each card sold raises income for the charity. Supporters can also make a voluntary donation as a gift to their recipient when they buy a card.He believes that charities should not assume that Christmas is the only period in which they can fundraise from greetings card. “This Valentine’s Day”, he commented, “charities with a card shop raised an average of £2.74 per Valentine card sold. Mother’s Day is likely to see far better results.”www.raisemoneythismothersday.co.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Credits: NASA/JPL-CaltechSupermassive black holes in the universe are like a raucous choir singing in the language of X-rays. When black holes pull in surrounding matter, they let out powerful X-ray bursts. This song of X-rays, coming from a chorus of millions of black holes, fills the entire sky — a phenomenon astronomers call the cosmic X-ray background.NASA’s Chandra mission has managed to pinpoint many of the so-called active black holes contributing to this X-ray background, but the ones that let out high-energy X-rays — those with the highest-pitched “voices” — have remained elusive.New data from JPL’s’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, or NuSTAR, have, for the first time, begun to pinpoint large numbers of the black holes belting out the high-energy X-rays. Or, in astronomer-speak, NuSTAR has made significant progress in resolving the high-energy X-ray background.“We’ve gone from resolving just two percent of the high-energy X-ray background to 35 percent,” said Fiona Harrison, the principal investigator of NuSTAR at Caltech and lead author of a new study describing the findings in an upcoming issue of The Astrophysical Journal. “We can see the most obscured black holes, hidden in thick gas and dust.”The results will ultimately help astronomers understand how the feeding patterns of supermassive black holes change over time. This is a key factor in the growth of not only black holes, but also the galaxies that host them. The supermassive black hole at the center of our Milky Way galaxy is dormant now, but at some point in the past, it too would have siphoned gas and bulked up in size.As black holes grow, their intense gravity pulls matter toward them. The matter heats up to scorching temperatures, and particles get boosted to close to the speed of light. Together, these processes make the black hole surroundings glow with X-rays. A supermassive black hole with a copious supply of fuel, or gas, will give off more high-energy X-rays.NuSTAR is the first telescope capable of focusing these high-energy X-rays into sharp pictures.“Before NuSTAR, the X-ray background in high energies was just one blur with no resolved sources,” said Harrison. “To untangle what’s going on, you have to pinpoint and count up the individual sources of the X-rays.”“We knew this cosmic choir had a strong high-pitched component, but we still don’t know if it comes from a lot of smaller, quiet singers, or a few with loud voices,” said co-author Daniel Stern, the project scientist for NuSTAR at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “Now, thanks to NuSTAR, we’re gaining a better understanding of the black holes and starting to address these questions.”High-energy X-rays can reveal what lies around the most buried supermassive black holes, which are otherwise hard to see. In the same way that medical X-rays can travel through your skin to reveal pictures of bones, NuSTAR can see through the gas and dust around black holes, to get a deeper view of what’s going on inside.With NuSTAR’s more complete picture of the supermassive black hole populations, astronomers can begin to puzzle together how they evolve and change over time. When did they start and stop feeding? What is the distribution of the gas and dust that both feed and hide the black holes?The team expects to resolve more of the high-energy X-ray background over time with NuSTAR — and better decipher the X-ray voices of our universe’s rowdiest choir.NuSTAR is a Small Explorer mission led by Caltech and managed by JPL for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. NuSTAR was developed in partnership with the Danish Technical University and the Italian Space Agency (ASI). The spacecraft was built by Orbital Sciences Corp., Dulles, Virginia. NuSTAR’s mission operations center is at UC Berkeley, and the official data archive is at NASA’s High Energy Astrophysics Science Archive Research Center. ASI provides the mission’s ground station and a mirror archive.

In light of this, a number of Senior Advocates and Advocates put forth their submissions.Attorney General (AG) KK Venugopal appeared for the Union and made consolidated arguments on the batch of petitions. The crux of Attorney General’s submissions centred around the foundational aspect and intent behind the MHA order for payment of full wages during lockdown, which in effect, he argued was to prevent human sufferings during the pandemic. Apart from that, he focused on the legality of such an order by justifying it in light of the Disaster Management Act, 2005. Further, his arguments earmarked the applicability of the Industrial Disputes Act, forming the core of his submissions, in as much as the employer and workman could approach conciliation and explore the possibility of some kind of settlement.Details:Attorney General KK Venugopal began his submissions by pointing out that the wage issue during lockdown was an inter-se issue to be settled between the employer and the employee. To substantiate this, he submitted that both the employers and the workman can approach conciliation under the industrial disputes Act for exploring possibility of some kind of settlement. At this juncture, the bench pointed out that since the employers were challenging the validity of this action, it was the prerogative of the Union to defend it.AG stated that the National Executive Committee (NEC) vis-à-vis the Disaster Management Act, 2005 was responsible for policy-making and ensure compliance of the notifications.AG: “The National Executive Committee under the Disaster Management Act can issue the notification, as the Act gives it wide powers “lay down guidelines of any kind” to deal with disasters”Replying to a statement put forth by the bench which pointed out the validity and basis of such a notification, AG stated that,”People were migrating in crores, they wanted the industries to continue. The notification was to keep the workers put, they’d only stay put if they are paid.”While highlighting the need to implement such a notification, Attorney General KK Venugopal argued that the entirety of the notification rested on the intention to prevent human sufferings.The bench put forth a question to the AG and added “Firstly, you have not invoked the provisions of the Industrial Disputes Act but of the DMA. What is required to be paid is 50 per cent under the Industrial Disputes Act. You have put forth payment of 100 per cent. Question is do you have power to get them to pay 100 per cent and on their failure to do so, prosecute them ?”Bench: “There can be negotiation industry-wise as it may not be possible to give 100 per cent. The government can play a role of a facilitator in this. There is a concern that workmen should not be left without pay, but industry may not have the money to pay.”Attorney General replied by stating that the most appropriate thing to consider here would be the humanitarian crisis that led to the issuance of the March 29 order.Following this, the bench had another query regarding a prayer raised by the petitioner(s) according to which they had sought the Government’s intervention to subsidise these wages.To this, AG replied by submitting that the Government had infused INR 20,000 in the MSME sector.”This is to your question whether have we put in funds. Govt. of India has done a very good job” the AG stated.Bench: “We are concerned with 29 March notification. It asks for 100 per cent payment and prosecution. We have reservations over this. Some discussion should be held to work out some solution for this period of time.”In this backdrop, the Attorney General prayed for an adjournment in the case(s) for two months. “My lords can let the interim order for no coercive action continue for the meanwhile” he said.Towards the end of the submissions, after petitioners had made their submissions, the bench had also put forth two queries to the Attorney General.Bench: “Submissions have been made regarding ESI fund. Whether can be utilised for helping workers?AG responds, “It cannot be redirected, but they can borrow from it.”Bench: “Query 2 is that submission that this order was issued only for migrant workers, what do you say to that?lAG, “I wouldn’t restrict it. Main objective was that if they get paid, they need not migrate.”Next Story read more
