In many ways, a small house can be more luxurious than a large one because of the casual simplicity it affords. The owners of this little retreat in the dunes appreciated the lifestyle their quirky but comfortable weekend house provided for many years but its flaws needed correcting: space was tight for their growing family, areas of the structure were sagging, and large expanses of glass admitted too much direct sunlight. Also, the form of the house, a series of boxes and turrets, was somewhat awkward looking. The challenge in this major renovation and addition on a restricted site was to add space and amenities while simplifying the form and function of the house into a balanced whole that fit within the owners’ busy lives.

The new bedroom and bath on the second floor fills a void in the original composition and takes advantage of the spectacular views of the surrounding dunes. The south wall of this bedroom is a sliding glass door that opens onto a new deck and views of the ocean beyond. The roof cantilevers past the door to form a sunshade that stretches, ribbon-like, past the existing master bedroom windows and down to a new storage closet on the first floor. This ribbon visually knits the addition and the existing house together creating a simpler whole. Save this picture!© Christopher WesnofskeThe roof of the bedroom also extends to the west, forming part of the frame for a new screen that addresses the house’s structural and sun lighting problems while giving the house its appealing new public face. Steel is hidden within the screen’s frame to stiffen the existing wall that had been bowing out. The screen within is comprised of 16’ long vertical boards heated and twisted 180 degrees. The twisting boards shade the existing living room windows from the harsh sun above and give privacy from the street below to the bedroom. During the day, the interiors are filled with soft reflected light and the views are preserved. At night, when backlit and viewed from the road that descends in front of the house, the twisting boards create visual effects that seem to move as the viewer does. Save this picture!© Christopher WesnofskeOn the first floor, the addition of a sleek new kitchen allows the space of the former eat-in kitchen to become a proper dining room. The new dining room is ideal for entertaining friends while the kitchen, opening onto a terrace in the private back yard, is a great setting for casual meals with the family. The simple white-on-white theme of the kitchen is carried throughout the renovated interior with bleached floors and white walls that create a bright, clean, relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for a beach getaway.Save this picture!© Christopher WesnofskeProject gallerySee allShow lessNew images released for 9/11 museumArticlesNew Amsterdam Pavilion / UNStudioArticles Share Year: Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeBates Masi ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmagansettRefurbishmentHousesUnited StatesPublished on September 11, 2009Cite: “Mako Residence / Bates Masi Architects” 11 Sep 2009.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 28, 2017 Facebook Twitter Windy today with strong southwest winds ramping up to 15-30 mph. Temps should push into the upper 50s to low 60s. Clouds will be building tomorrow as we get closer to our next frontal passage for Thursday. Temps will be slightly lower because of the cloud build, but still will be well above normal for the year. The front arrives Thursday, bringing .05”-.3” of action to about 70% of the state. It will be east of us by evening.We dry back down behind the front for Friday and temperatures remain above normal. A cooler weekend will be in store, with temps rising again on Monday. All 4 days will be dry.Scattered showers move into the state next Tuesday, but will be limited to a few hundredths to .3” over about 70% of the state. This will be likely with a warm front lifting in. Then the big question mark for the entire forecast period comes for next Wednesday and Thursday. We still are looking for a nice cluster of rain and thunderstorms to come out of the southwest, up to a cold frontal boundary into the state. WE are looking for as much as .25”-1” if the thunderstorms can develop. However, models disagree and call for the action to disintegrate. We are leaving our forecast alone at this time. Scattered showers linger in NW flow behind the strong low in Canada for Friday and Saturday of next week, bringing cumulative additional precipitation up to .25”. The map above shows full 10 day precipitation potential, including Thursday’s action and everything for next week.In the extended period, we see mixed clouds and sun for the 10th through the 13th with cooler temps on strong north winds. In fact, we think there is a good chance this will swing the pattern back to below normal for the balance of December.

Growth came in at the high end of a survey of economists, with the consensus forecast calling for an increase of 3.1 percent.GDP for the first quarter was also revised to reflect a 2.1 percent drop, a modest improvement over the estimated 2.9 percent contraction reported previously.The Commerce Department reported that the upturn over the latest quarter mostly reflected gains in private investment and exports as well as growing consumer spending. Increases in state and local government spending also contributed, as did improvements in both residential and nonresidential fixed investment.Acknowledging that part of the second-quarter growth is due to a rebound from a weather-weakened first quarter, Doug Handler, chief economist for IHS, said that recent trends point to better than average economic growth of 3.0–3.5 percent for the second half of this year as the labor market keeps expanding.”The data are consistent with an economy that can add 200,000-plus jobs per month for at least the next several months,” Handler said.The next employment situation report is due from the Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday. Economists anticipate 233,000 jobs were added to payrolls in July, which would mark six straight months of growth above 200,000.The government’s second estimate for Q2 GDP, which will offer a more complete look at data, is scheduled for release August 28.

It was perceived as a landmark legislation keeping in mind the progressive shift it brought in the approach towards and the overall gamut of rights for persons with disabilities in India. The law essentially looked at and spoke of persons with disabilities as equal participants in public life, who must mandatorily enjoy access to all those rights, which are available to persons without disabilities. At the outset the law provides for ‘Equality and Non Discrimination’ as a blanket right of PwDs. The Law further provides for a right to community life, home and family, reproductive rights and protection from abuse, violence and exploitation. However history has shown that equality cannot become a reality due to lack of access to public institutions, facilities etc. Thus the Act further provides for ensuring equality in access by providing adequate measures. For instance Section 12 of the Act provides that, ‘The appropriate Government shall ensure that persons with disabilities are able to exercise the right to access any court, tribunal, authority, commission or any other body having judicial or quasi-judicial or investigative powers without discrimination on the basis of disability.’ To substantiate this provision (to facilitate access) the law further provides that the Government should ensure that all public documents are in accessible format and that the filing departments, registry or any other office of records are supplied with necessary equipment to enable filing, storing and referring to the documents and evidence in accessible formats. To turn these provisions into reality social activists, who are persons with disabilities themselves have been urging courts to push the government to implement the law. In this regard, the court passed a few directions in Rajive Raturi versus Union of India, for creating accessible physical infrastructure for the blind, on 15th December 2017. Access to Government websites was one of the issues covered by these directions, noting that, there should be: Comprehensive revision of target deadliness under accessibility of knowledge and ICT Ecosystem. At least 50% of central and state govt. websites are to meet accessibility standards by March 2017. At least 50% of the public documents are to meet accessibility standards by March 2018. All the directions were supposed to be complied with within three months from the date of judgment. The Court heard the matter again after three months, till when the Government was required to submit reports of follow up action taken. Meanwhile, Mr. Rahul Bajaj (a person with Visual Impairment and an Academic Scholar) intervened in the matter demanding certain facilities for visually impaired lawyers practicing in the High Court as well as in Supreme Court. In a subsequent order, after three months (on the 12.02.2019) the Hon’ble Supreme Court passed interim order and sought response from all the High Courts as well as the Secretary General of the Supreme Court before the next date of hearing that was 12.012.2020. To do a status check on the same, I sought information from all the High Courts to know ‘Whether the website of each High Court and Supreme Court is accessible for the deaf and the visually impaired. I received only two substantial responses as yet, from High Court of Sikkim and Uttarakhand, which have followed the direction issued in the matter of Rajiv Raturi Vs Union of India WP(C No 243 of 2005). Sikkim High Court has not only made its website accessible for persons with disabilities, it has also added a link to voice assistance software to its own and subordinate Courts’ website. Using this link, various screen reader applications provided by E-courts service portal can be downloaded in any computer using Window Os. High Court of Uttarakhand also complied with the direction of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the above mentioned matter. However the Supreme Courts lags far behind in this matter. When I sought the same information (about the accessibility of the court website from the Supreme Court), I received a response that the STQC (Standardization Testing and Quality Certification) for the website is in process. This response was received on 28th Feb 2019. After one year, when I again asked the same question I received a similar response stating, “Computer Cell of the Registry is in the process of initiating the process of acquisition of STQC certificate after making the site compliant specially abled persons”. (Dated. 14th Jan 2020), thus highlighting that the situation had not changed in the highest court of the land. This essentially means that a person with Visual impairment or hearing impairment (whether he or she is a litigant, a Lawyer or a judge) cannot actually access the Court with having to depend on anyone. This also explains the poor representation of persons with disabilities in the arena of law like all other fields. Despite two legislations having been passed (one in the year 1995 which got replaced by the second and more progressive legislation, RPWD Act 2016), the disappointing part is that the highest Court of Land which has given stern directions as part of various cases for the implementation of the law has not been able to make its own premises processes and website accessible, not leaving the ‘people with disabilities’ with many choices if they wish to air their grievances before the Court. Access to information, especially Digital Access has become even more crucial in the current context of a worldwide pandemic that pushed people into their homes (for those who had the luxury of a home) and forced others to be on the road (who were migrant daily wage workers). This is because all information is being supplied to people via radio, TV or Web. Thus ensuring that all this crucial information including advisories, preventive steps and curative measures reach people with disabilities in languages that they understand. On 14th March 2020, the Central Government declared Covid -19 to be a ‘Notified Disaster’ under the Disaster Management Act, 2005. This notification increased the responsibility of the Government towards Persons with disabilities manifold. Since the RPWD Act provides that the persons with disabilities must have equal protection and safety in situations of risk, armed conflict, humanitarian emergencies and natural disasters. Also The National Disaster Management Authority and the State Disaster Management Authority are required to take appropriate measures to ensure inclusion of persons with disabilities in its disaster management activities like, prevention of danger, reduction of risk, capacity building, preparedness, rescue, relief and rehabilitation. It is pertinent to mention that from March 13th 2020, the Hon’ble Supreme Court has been passing several advisories from time to time, whether these advisories are in accessible format? Specific efforts of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and Government targeted towards persons with disabilities are yet to be seen, especially in light of the current situation, which leaves PwDs more vulnerable than people without disabilities.Views Are Personal Only.
