Within the bustling streets of Mongkok, Hong Kong concrete created a welcoming clubhouse for all residents of the Skypark tower.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanSkypark is a large residential development by Hong Kong based New World Development, led by Mr Adrian Cheng. Within one of the densest areas of Hong Kong the tower is suited to people that enjoy life in a lively and vibrant neighborhood. However, Skypark also provides an escape from the city with its communal clubhouse and outside park on the very top of the building.Save this picture!Courtesy of concreteConcrete has designed the architecture and interior of all residential public areas from the street entrance to the transfer concierge floor and top floor clubhouse.Save this picture!Clubhouse Floor PlanInspired by the crowded and narrow streets of Mongkok, where space is limited and people bump into each other, concrete created a place for residents to escape the chaos and for people to truly connect. Almost literally, by “breaking down the walls” of a generic clubhouse, an open and transformable public space was made. This created an opportunity to redesign the essence of a residents-clubhouse within this dense and cosmopolitan city.Save this picture!Courtesy of concreteBy working closely with P&T architects and landscape architects ALN, Concrete was able to make an integrated design that captures the “in-between spaces” and creates an architecture where interior and landscape designs merge.Save this picture!Courtesy of concreteThe clubhouse consists of different function areas. Kitchen, library and bar sit together with a gym, swimming pool and art gallery.Save this picture!Courtesy of concreteA large outside staircase connects the clubhouse floor with the landscaped park on top of the building complete with picnic and bbq areas.Save this picture!Courtesy of concreteThe staircase, where the gardens drop down and the living rooms climb up, becomes an outdoor cinema on Friday nights, or a place to enjoy the stars in the sky and secretly kiss your girlfriend… Save this picture!Courtesy of concreteARCHITECTUREThe open floorplan is made by four squared volumes that house all the necessities like staircases, elevators, structure, MEP, restrooms, storage and bar and kitchen equipment. These blocks are cladded with travertine and protrude the ceiling into the landscaped roof. By positioning them diagonally the in-between space gives place to the different areas and function rooms. These spaces are kept transparent and open, with a few glass partitions and sliding doors. This results in surprising spaces, where one can find the best views in every corner with the spectacular view towards the city as your background.

Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Third medical school dean candidate focused on clinic experiences, diverse curriculum Previous articleTCU ranked 7th in final AP Poll following Alamo Bowl comebackNext articleNew outreach chair elected in SGA House meeting Briana Jones RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter + posts Facebook Briana Jones Briana Joneshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/briana-jones/ printThe first of four candidates for the deanship of TCU’s new medical school spoke in an open forum Tuesday afternoon in Sid Richardson Hall.The new medical school is a partnership between TCU and the University of North Texas Health Science Center. A search committee for the school’s dean, comprised of both TCU and UNTHSC professionals, has been looking for possible deans since the announcement of the medical school back in November.The four candidates each get a chance to present their backgrounds and ideas for the new medical school to TCU and UNTHSC faculty and students.Dr. Stuart Flynn was the first candidate to present his case for the deanship. Flynn, who is currently the dean of the College of Medicine at the University of Arizona, received his medical and residency training from the University of Michigan. He completed his postdoctoral work at Stanford University.Flynn said one of his goals as dean would be to implement more competency-driven courses rather than time-driven courses. He also said he wants to create a program in which students have an opportunity to work closely with patients.Approximately 70 people attended the forum, a number which Flynn said was a great sign.“It shows that the people of the Fort Worth community really care,” Flynn said. “I can really tell that they really want to know that the right candidate is chosen for this job.”The other three candidates will speak at TCU next week:Candidate B: Jan. 20 at 3:15 p.m., Sid Richardson Lecture Hall 4Candidate C: Jan. 21 at 3:45 p.m., Sid Richardson Lecture Hall 2Candidate D: Jan. 22 at 3:15 p.m., Sid Richardson Lecture Hall 4 The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Dr. Stuart Flynn, a candidate for the deanship of the new TCU and UNTHSC medical school, spoke to TCU faculty and students on Tuesday.

State of Tamil Nadu would not be a binding precedent, after the coming into force of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016.In Surendra Mohan, a two-judge bench of the Supreme Court had held that stipulating a limit of 50% disability in hearing impairment or visual impairment as a condition to be eligible for the post of a judicial officer is a legitimate restriction. The court had dismissed the appeal filed by a V. Surendra Mohan, who was held ineligible for the post of judicial officer (civil judge) as it was found that he was having 70% disability on account of blindness.In the case Vikash Kumar v Union Public Service Commission, a three judge bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud, Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv Khanna, criticized Surendra Mohan decision as rendered without taking note of relevant concepts under the 2016 Act and also the “principle of reasonable accomodation”.”This judgment was delivered by this Court after India became a party to the UNCRPD and the RPwD Act 2016, came into force. The aforesaid view espoused by this Court is innocent of the principle of reasonable accommodation. This Court did not consider whether the failure of the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commssion to provide reasonable accommodation to a judge with a disability above the impugned ceiling was statutorily or constitutionally tenable. There is no reference in this Court’s judgment to whether the appellant would have been able to discharge the duties of a Civil Judge (Junior Division), after being provided the reasonable accommodations necessitated by his disability”, the three judge bench said.While considering an appeal filed by a UPSC candidate against rejection of his request for a scribe, the bench noted that under Section 20, every government establishment is required to provide “reasonable accommodation” and a conducive environment to employees with disability. “Reasonable accommodation” as defined in Section 2(y) means necessary and appropriate modifications and adjustments to ensure that persons with disabilities enjoy their rights equally with others. The bench made the following observations:”The principle of reasonable accommodation captures the positive obligation of the State and private parties to provide additional support to persons with disabilities to facilitate their full and effective participation in society. The concept of reasonable accommodation is developed in section (H) below. For the present, suffice it to say that, for a person with disability, the constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights to equality, the six freedoms and the right to life under Article 21 will ring hollow if they are not given this additional support that helps make these rights real and meaningful for them. Reasonable accommodation is the instrumentality – are an obligation as a society – to enable the disabled to enjoy the constitutional guarantee of equality and nondiscrimination. “, the bench observed in the judgment.In the specific context of disability, the principle of reasonable accommodation postulates that the conditions which exclude the disabled from full and effective participation as equal members of society have to give way to an accommodative society which accepts difference, respects their needs and facilitates the creation of an environment in which the societal barriers to disability are progressively answered. Accommodation implies a positive obligation to create conditions conducive to the growth and fulfilment of the disabled in every aspect of their existence – whether as students, members of the workplace, participants in governance or, on a personal plane, in realizing the fulfilling privacies of family life. The accommodation which the law mandates is ‘reasonable’ because it has to be tailored to the requirements of each condition of disability. The expectations which every disabled person has are unique to the nature of the disability and the character of the impediments which are encountered as its consequenceFor instance, for a visually impaired person, the reasonable accommodation she requires might consist of screen magnification software or a screen reader [which can speak out the content on a computer screen in a mechanical voice]. It might also consist of content being made available in Braille and a sighted assistant. In the same way, for someone with a hearing impairment, reasonable accommodation could consist of speech-to-text converters, access to sign language interpreters, sound amplification systems, rooms in which echo is eliminated and lip-reading is possible. Similarly, for a person with dyslexia, reasonable accommodation could consist of access to computer programmes suited to meet their needs and compensatory timeTaking note of this, the bench observed that the Mohan judgment does not discuss this principle even though it was rendered after the enactment of 2016 Act. It said:The analysis by this Court in the portion excerpted above begs the question. Specifically, the relevant question, under the reasonable accommodation analysis, is not whether complications will be caused by the grant of a reasonable accommodation. By definition, reasonable accommodation demands departure from the status quo and hence ‘avoidable complications’ are inevitable. The relevant question is whether such accommodations would give rise to a disproportionate or undue burden. The two tests are entirely different. As we have noted previously, the cornerstone of the reasonable accommodation principle is making adjustments that enable a disabled person to effectively counter the barriers posed by their disability. Conspicuous by its absence is any reasonable accommodation analysis whatsoever by this Court in Mohan. Such an analysis would have required a consideration of the specific accommodations needed, the cost of providing them, reference to the efficacy with which other judges with more than 40-50% visual/hearing impairment in India and abroad can discharge judicial duties after being provided the necessary accommodations, amongst other factors. In holding that the ceiling was reasonable on the application of the principle of reasonable accommodation, the ratio as expounded fails as “distinct exhortatory dimension that must always be kept in mind while determining whether an adjustment to assist a disabled person to overcome the disadvantage that she or he has in comparison to an able bodied person is reasonable.” It is persons with disabilities who have been the victim of this lapse In light of the fact that the view of this court in Mohan was rendered in a case under the 1995 Act which has now been replaced by the RPwD Act 2016 and in light of the absence of a reasonable accommodation analysis by this Court, the Mohan judgment stands on a legally vulnerable footing. It would not be a binding precedent, after enforcement of the RPwD Act 2016.Read the article published by LiveLaw criticizing the Surendra Mohan judgment hereCase: Vikash Kumar vs. Union Public Service Commission [Civil Appeal No. 273 of 2021]Coram: Justices DY Chandrachud, Indira Banerjee and Sanjiv KhannaCounsel: Adv Rajan Mani, Adv Naresh Kaushik, ASG Madhavi Divan, Adv Sanchita AinCitation: LL 2021 SC 76Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Molecular data has been used in fungal systematics since the 1970s, and its rate of incorporation has increased significantly in recent years. In phylogeny molecular data has already been used to clarify major evolutionary lines, and has aided in the delineation of higher taxonomic groups including the kingdom Fungi, and the main phyla within it. Molecular data has been used at all taxonomic levels and has allowed for a greater phylogenetic signal to be represented within systematic groups. At the higher levels this has led to the re-evaluation of some orders and families, and at lower taxonomic levels it has helped in the identification of species, particular populations and possibly individuals. There are however some limitations to the widespread use of molecular data. Some of these relate to the comparability and utility of methods between different fungal groups, some relate to the wide diversity of life cycles adopted by fungi, and others are due to the paucity of comparable definitive evolutionary markers. A significant limitation to the wider application of molecular data is the restricted range of data currently available, and the relation of this to the as yet unquantified numbers of undescribed species. Despite these limitations molecular data has had a very significant effect on our understanding of fungal systematics, and many further systematic aspects are likely to be elucidated in the future.
