The project is a major renovation of a house built in the 80’s. The architects strategy is to breakdown the essence of the existing architecture and design it  again taking into consideration the modernity of  lifestyle of the 21st century.Save this picture!© Terence AngsiocoRespecting the history of the existing architecture and providing an intervention rather than scrapping the old design and starting anew, analyzing important characters of the old structure and complementing it with modern details.Save this picture!New Ground Floor PlanFrom the elevations, the architects had to study the lines and create a singular composition that strengthened and compliment the original lines of the structure. Creating a funneling effect to suggest the importance of the foyer leading to the main door, manifested through how the wood planks were laid out in such a way that the leading effect is enhanced.Save this picture!© Terence AngsiocoHierarchy of materials was also considered. Having a solid background using natural stone and a softer material for the front center of the elevation bordered by a brushed stainless steel detail. Having the exterior material go through the interior creates visual continuity.Save this picture!© Terence AngsiocoThe same strategy of juxtaposition of old and new was applied to the floor plan. Making sure it met the new requirements. The architects responded by examining the space as a whole and independently and created transitions to bridge the old program and the new.Save this picture!Diagram 1Project gallerySee allShow lessIwan Baan: No FilterArchitecture NewsInnocean Headquarters Europe / Ippolito Fleitz GroupSelected Projects Share Year:  2014 1545 House / LIMA ArchitectureSave this projectSave1545 House / LIMA Architecture Year:  Houses Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeLIMA ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationMakatiHousesRefurbishmentRenovationPhilippinesPublished on December 20, 2014Cite: “1545 House / LIMA Architecture” 20 Dec 2014.

Counter-Productive To Exercise Powers Under Patents Act Over COVID Vaccines, Drugs At This Stage, Centre Tells Supreme Court

first_imgTop StoriesCounter-Productive To Exercise Powers Under Patents Act Over COVID Vaccines, Drugs At This Stage, Centre Tells Supreme Court LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK10 May 2021 1:23 AMShare This – xThe Centre has told the Supreme Court that it is not in favour of exercising powers under the Patents Act, such as compulsory licensing or government authorization, over COVID-19 vaccines and medicines at this stage.In an affidavit filed before the top court, the Central Government has said that it is engaging in diplomatic level talks with other nations for procurement of vaccines and medicines, and any discussion on exercise of statutory powers under Patents Act will be counter-productive at this stage.Advertisement The affidavit reads :”Any exercise of statutory powers either under the patents act 1970 read with Trips agreement and Doha declaration or in any other way can only prove to be counter-productive at this stage, the central government is very actively engaging itself with global organisations at a diplomatic level to find out a solution in the best possible interest of India.It is earnestly urged that any discussion or a mention of exercise of statutory powers either for essential drugs or vaccines having patent issues would have serious, severe and unintended adverse consequences in the countries efforts being made on global platform using all its resources, good-will and good-offices though diplomatic and other channels”.Advertisement The Centre’s submission came in response to the queries made by the Supreme Court as regards the use of powers under Patents Act over COVID drugs and medicines.A bench comprising Justices DY Chandrachud, L Nageswara Rao and S Ravindra Bhat had asked the Centre why it was not considering options like compulsory licensing and government authorization using powers under Sections 92 and 100 of the Patents Act. The bench asked about the invocation of Section 92 or Section 100 of the Patents Act to enable manufacture of generic drugs with respect to Remdesivir, Tolicizumab etc.Advertisement Advertisement Section 92 of the Patents Act is a special provision enabling the Central Government to issue compulsory licenses for the manufacture of patented drugs in a public health emergency . Section 100 of the Patents Act enables Central Government to use patented inventions for government purposes.The bench, while considering the suo-moto case In Re Distribution of Essential Supplies and Services During Pandemic, had opined that since COVID-19 was a public health emergency, the situation was apt for invoking such emergency powers to increase the affordability and accessibility of the medicines and vaccines.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement In response, the Central Government has said that in the current scenario, the main constraint is in availability of raw materials and essential inputs and therefore any additional licenses may not result in increased production.”…in view of the current constraints on availability of raw materials and other essential inputs, mere addition of more production capacity may not lead to the desired outcomes of enhanced supplies”, the affidavit states.However, the Centre says that it any manufacturer applies for a compulsory license under Section 92 of the Patents Act, the same might be suitably considered by the Controller of Patents.The affidavit also says that the Centre has projected the need of Remdesivir vials to be 1 crore per month if the active COVID19 cases continue at the present rate.”While the production levels prior to the recent surge in Covid cases was only around 60,000 per day, with the efforts of the Government, have increased to almost three and a half times in a span of three weeks to around 2 lakh per day. To enhance the production capacities of the 07 licensed manufacturers 35 additional manufacturing sites for Remdesivir have been approved by DCGI, taking the total number of sites to 57, and monthly manufacturing capacity to 1 crore vials”, the affidavit says. It is also stated that the Government is taking steps to import Remdesivir from foreign countries. The Ministry of External Affairs is placing orders for procuring 3 lakh doses of Remdesivir with a company called Eva Pharma in Egypt for supplies during May and 1st Week of June, 2021.In addition, the MoHFW has secured donations of Remdesivir fromother countries: 1.25 lakh vials through US AID, 4.50 lakh vials from M/s Gilead Sciences, USA and small quantities from other countries as well. Around 2.80 lakh doses have arrived and have been dispatched to consignee locations across the country. DCGI will continue to expeditiously process any applications for new drug permissions for Remdesivir, the Centre told the Court.Today, the Court adjourned the case to May 13, after the control room server handing the VC session developed technical difficulties.Also from the Centre’s affidavit :Price Factor Of Vaccines Won’t Impact Ultimate Beneficiary As States Have Declared Free Vaccination : Centre Tells Supreme Court “COVID Vaccination Policy Conforms To Constitutional Mandate, Executive Needs Discretion, Requires No Interference By Court,: Centre Tells Supreme Court Persons Without Digital Access Can Take Help Of Friends, Families, NGOs, Common Service Centres For CoWIN Registration : Centre Tells SC Click here to read/download the affidavit Tags#Patents Act Remdesivir COVID Vaccines Compulsory Licence TRIPS Supreme Court Justice DY Chandrachud Justice L Nageswara Rao Justice S Ravindra Bhat Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Ravena puts finishing touches on NLEX win

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netNot even a flu could stop Kiefer Ravena from helping NLEX in its all-important Game 4 against Magnolia on Friday in their 2018 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals tiff.Fighting through his sickness, the super rookie  exploded for nine of his team’s last 11 points to help the Road Warriors claim the 91-79 win against the Hotshots and tie the best-of-seven series to two games apiece.ADVERTISEMENT Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown LATEST STORIES But for Ravena, his late-game spurt was nothing special.“We already placed ourselves in a good position, that we have a big lead coming into the fourth quarter. That lead really was something that I didn’t want to let go because we know how tough of an opponent Magnolia is,” he said.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkThe Road Warriors was holding on to 80-65 advantage in the final five minutes before Ravena caught fire in the end game and delivered the 12-point lead.“During those last five minutes, I just didn’t want to let my team down cause we worked so hard to build that lead,” said the former Ateneo playmaker, who finished the game with 20 points on an 8-of-14 shooting from the field, to go with five assists and three rebounds.

Leongson (@RLeongsonINQ) March 16, 2018Ravena looked at that fourth quarter as NLEX’s chance to test its resolve  which would be valuable for the squad in the long run as the series turns to a virtual best-of-three.“When they take the lead, they really protect that advantage. And for us to get better, we have to learn how to take care of leads,” he said. “It can’t be that we’ll just get a big lead and eventually falter in the end. If you can build a cushion and make the game better for your team in the end game, you must know how to finish it.”ADVERTISEMENT Team defense key in Road Warriors’ series-tying win As the Road Warriors passed that test with flying colors, Ravena is hoping to see his team sustain the effort when they shoot for the lead in Game 5 on Sunday at Ynares Center in Antipolo.“Hopefully, we carry this momentum,” he said. “The series is tied, it’s a best-of-three and take this one, enjoy and savor it for a bit, go back to the drawing board, a few hours wakeup and practice, because we know that Magnolia will make those adjustments. So hopefully, we’d take care of business on our side.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

DONEGAL CHILDREN’S CHARITY GETS NEW NAME

first_imgThe west of Ireland’s children’s cancer charity CD’s Helping Hands has been rebranded and will be known as Hand in Hand.This vital charity which works closely with Donegal families was set up more than five years ago to support the families of children diagnosed with childhood cancer.In this time, the demand for its services has grown significantly. The demand has also spread geographically and the charity now supports families of children in most counties along the western seaboard of the country. The new name Hand in Hand is reflective of the supportive approach the charity takes with all those with whom it works. The new logo and brand incorporates a bright, cheerful, and hopeful motif of children at play – which communicates to those in need of the services and those who wish to fundraise for the charity – that there is very often, thankfully, light at the end of the tunnel.Hand in Hand is dependent on the fundraising of volunteers and partner organisations for its survival, and with demand for its services growing the need for financial support has never been more critical. The charity already helps families in Donegal, Mayo, Sligo, Galway, Clare, Leitrim, Roscommon and Limerick but would really like to be in a position to further increase the level of support in these areas. Volunteers and partners in these counties will play a vital role in the growth and development of the charity, and Hand in Hand is always delighted to have more people involved.For more information on Hand in Hand, to get involved, or to find out about some of its forthcoming fundraising events, log onto www.handinhand.ie or check it out on Facebook or Twitter.DONEGAL CHILDREN’S CHARITY GETS NEW NAME was last modified: May 20th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
