The livestream event will include prayers and addresses from figures including California Bishop Marc Andrus; the Most Rev. Thabo Makgoba, archbishop of Cape Town and primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa; and U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.“The Life of Christ,” a triptych altarpiece by New York pop artist Keith Haring, is displayed in the AIDS Interfaith Memorial Chapel at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California. Completed in 1990, it was Haring’s last work before he died of AIDS.

The service is being co-hosted by the Diocese of California, the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance of the World Council of Churches, the San Francisco Interfaith Council and Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health.Andrus will begin and end the service live in the cathedral’s AIDS Interfaith Memorial Chapel, which features artwork by Keith Haring and was dedicated in 2000. The service – focusing on the themes of lament, resilience, hope and renewal – will feature prayers, music and contributions from leaders representing Christian, Muslim and Jewish groups, as well as Pelosi.Pelosi, who lives in San Francisco, will offer welcoming remarks and also a more personal contribution. Susan Roggio, who was a flower girl at Pelosi’s wedding, died of AIDS in 1986, and Pelosi sewed a panel in her memory for the AIDS Memorial Quilt. That panel will be on display at the cathedral.

It offered funerals for anyone who had died of AIDS, whether the person was a member of the congregation or not. The cathedral was burying up to 35 people a week at the height of the crisis in the early ’90s, according to the diocese, and many of the first panels of what became the AIDS Memorial Quilt were sewn there.AIDS 2020, the world’s largest conference on HIV and AIDS, will offer more than 600 virtual sessions and events. This year’s theme is resilience, drawing attention to the work that remains to be done despite decades of dramatic progress. The effort to end AIDS, organizers say, has entered a “new phase” in which the challenges are less centered around research and treatment and more about “a deteriorating human rights climate, repressive and punitive national laws in many countries across the globe, increasing xenophobia and social exclusion, and the widening gap between those with and without access to health services.”The interfaith service is open to all; any wishing to attend can RSVP on Facebook or Eventbrite.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Following on from the success of the Bluebell Pool House, Adam Knibb Architects were approached to review and produce ideas for a whole house refurbishment and extension to the neighbouring property – The Beckett House.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerWith tight planning constraints Adam Knibb Architects had to take an inventive view towards getting the space required. With the original cottage based in the countryside, Adam Knibb Architects had to make use of a planning loophole that allowed only allowed a small dwelling to be extended by 25% if below 120sqm. Following this if the existing house was then over 120sqm we could apply for a much larger extension. Two applications allowed for a ground floor extension and then the first floor / side return to be added, which gave the required space.Save this picture!Floor PlanIt was proposed that the existing farm workers cottage would be completely gutted and turned into a very contemporary modern house. The ground floor extension gives the opportunity for a large vista view to the garden and woodlands beyond. Framed with slender frame glass, the aperture gives panoramic views. At first floor level a new master suite was added which poked its head out around the existing building and benefited from dual aspect views  – from woodlands to fields.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe exterior concept was to for a distinct datum between the ground and first floor. To have a solid monolithic masonry base, represented by render at the ground. The first floor timber box can then appear to sit lightly on top. We wanted to mimic the trees behind so we used cedar that will turn silver over time, and oriented it vertically so it blends in with the background. The design does not want to be overbearing to the road so gives a soft modern approach from the front but then completely transforms the house from the rear.Save this picture!SectionInternally, a radical floating staircase allows natural light to be brought through from the front hallway into the open plan rear space. Large slim line sliding doors open fully to blur the transition between internal and external space. A new Bulthaup kitchen sits as piece of sculpture in the new space, complemented by a single piece of artwork on the wall.Save this picture!© Martin GardnerProject gallerySee allShow lessSocial Housing in Nice / Comte & VollenweiderSelected ProjectsSpacumer / L’EAU design + Kim Dong-jinSelected Projects Share The Beckett House / Adam Knibb Architects “COPY” Photographs Main Contractor: United Kingdomlast_img read more

Case round up

first_img Previous Article Next Article Case round-up by Eversheds 020 7919 4500When is a dismissal hearing a disciplinary hearing? Heathmill Multimedia ASP Limited v D Jones & M Jones, EAT 10 June[2003] The two Jones brothers were employed by Heathmill from spring 2001. Due toHeathmill’s financial difficulties, the brothers were called to a meeting inDecember 2001. They were given one month’s notice, but were not told the reasonfor their dismissal. The tribunal found that the reason for their dismissal was redundancy, andtherefore “it was not appropriate to follow the disciplinary route in dealingwith this matter”. Nevertheless, Heathmill had breached the EmploymentRelations Act 1999 by failing to allow the workers to be accompanied at theirdismissal meeting. The meeting fell within the statutory definition of a disciplinary hearing(S13(4) ERA 1996), as a hearing that could result in the “taking of someother action in respect of a worker by his employer”, and so they shouldhave been advised of their right to be accompanied by the dismissal officer.Heathmill was ordered to pay the brothers £480 each (the statutory maximum oftwo weeks’ pay). Heathmill appealed, arguing that the meeting was not a disciplinary hearing.The tribunal had already found that as the dismissal was by reason ofredundancy, there was no question of there being any disciplinary hearing. Ifthe purpose of the meeting was simply to inform the employees that they were tobe dismissed, then it was not a ‘hearing’ of any kind, and certainly not adisciplinary hearing within the statutory definition. The appeal was allowed, and the awards were discharged. Equal pay defence Kings College London v Clark, EAT 4 June [2003] Clark was employed by Kings College as a scientific officer, grade 1. In1993, on merging with another college, Tate – a grade 3 post holder – transferredand joined Clark. TUPE applied to Tate’s transfer, and he continued to receive a higher salarythan Clark, as well as increased holiday entitlement. Clark consistentlycomplained they were engaged in ‘like work’, and should both be paid the sameamount. She brought a successful equal pay claim. The college accepted that she was employed in the same type of work as Tate.However, on appeal, it sought to challenge the tribunal’s rejection of itsdefence that the variation in pay was due to a material factor unconnected tothe difference in sex; ie, the need to preserve Tate’s terms and conditions onthe transfer of his employment in 1993. The appeal was allowed. The material factor defence had not been adequatelyconsidered by the tribunal. Although the college had undertaken a gradingreview in 1999, the employment tribunal accepted this did not break the chainof causation that stretched back to the earlier transfer, and the college’sobligations under TUPE.

LATEST: Leading Purplebricks’ shareholder offloads its stock

first_imgCity investment firm ToscaFund has offloaded all its shares in Purplebricks in a move that strongly suggests weakening investor confidence in the hybrid estate agency and wider industry.Prior to Friday the investment fund held 9.8% of all Purplebricks Group Plc shares, although the City wasn’t told until late yesterday about the sell-off.The fund’s interest in the company is estimated to have been worth £35 million in January when Purplebricks share price was riding relatively high at £1.17p, but on Friday would have been worth just £11.2 million.ToscaFund’s decision highlights the fast-moving nature of the stock market at the moment, as well as Purplebricks difficult position as it consumes its remaining cash reserves while waiting for the Coronavirus pandemic to pass.Over the past 11 months ToscaFund has spent million increasing its holding in Purplebricks, making it – until now – one of the most significant shareholders in the agency.City shares discussions platforms have been buzzing with speculation about why ToscaFund has ditched the shares, including that many City investors are worried that agents both large and small will not survive a prolonged lockdown.As The Negotiator reported in February, industry commentator Andrew Stanton looked into Purplebricks published accounts and predicted that the company was in a race to preserve its cash pile, something its CEO Vic Darvey strongly denied, saying its continuing operations in the UK and Canada were profitable.But the Coronavirus crisis means, like most other agents, it has seen a dramatic reduction in turnover in recent weeks.Andrew Stanton Purplebricks April 7, 2020Nigel Lewis2 commentsRobert John Eastman-Nagle, Leese & Nagle Estates Agents Ltd. Leese & Nagle Estates Agents Ltd. 7th April 2020 at 1:15 pmHow long can a dream of keeping an online estate agency model stay afloat? It takes money from clients upfront, retains this money without having to be accountable for any sales results. As long as the public kept supporting it and then then from the investment side, risk taking investors continued to see a future in it, there was alway an open cheque book for its vision.There is though, only so much money you can pump into a flawed business model of online estate agency and one has to question the ethics of how it gains its revenue.So maybe, at long last, the risk-taking public and also higher-risk-taking investors are not just starting to, but actually now smelling the coffee!Log in to ReplyDAVID C HAYWORTH, astons estate agents astons estate agents 7th April 2020 at 9:55 amThis company has always used its low fees and USP of no commission as why you should use them. Fact a low fee is a high fee if they don’t sell the property. The salesman (negotiators) are paid for new instructions. What motivation do they have to sell? Very little.PB has had millions pumped into it… and the share price keeps falling… Can’t see this business being around for much longer.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
