Built on the slope of a small hill, La Cornette is a country house open to the pastoral landscape that surrounds it. Under a soaring roof resembling a nun’s cornet wimple is a roomy dwelling modelled on traditional Quebec houses of old that lodged large families and their relatives. This house for celebrations and holidays, designed for two families, is set into the naturally uneven terrain in a way that brings each level into direct contact with the surrounding natural environment. It offers a resting place for all guests under its large gable in a series of bedrooms and unusual sleeping areas.Save this picture!© Francis PelletierAn out-scaled structure, like the agricultural buildings that surround it, the house is both traditional in its morphology and innovative in its use of materials. Shingled with raw fibre-cement panels on the walls and roof, it is a house beyond the domestic scale, simple and rot-proof, capable of standing the test of time. The house is striated with bands of horizontal windows, giant louvers that cut the sun at its most powerful, with new points of view at each level. It is protected by its wimple from the hot summer sun and inundated with light in the winter, needing neither air-conditioning nor heating on sunny days.

In the second level, you can find the social space composed by a living room, a dining room and a kitchen; the last two are connected to a gallery which is tied to the yard through a balcony.

They were charged with offences under Sections 120-B, 153-A, 295-A, 298, 500, 511 read with Section 149 of Indian Penal Code, section 67 of Information Technology Act.  One of the issues considered by the Court in the petition filed by the accused was whether dissemination of “material which is lascivious or appeals to the prurient interest” by way of Compact Disks would attract Section 67 of the Information Technology Act? The contention of the accused was that the Section 67 is not attracted since there is no public dissemination of any matter over the internet or by way of social media like WhatsApp, Facebook etc.Taking note of the definition of ‘Electronic form’ and the Section 67 of the IT Act, the court said that What Section 67 requires is the publication or transmittal in Electronic Form, an examination of Section 2(1) (r) would indicate that any information generated, sent, received or stored in media, magnetic, optical etc. The Court also referred to the meaning of Compact Disc in Encyclopedia, and observed thus:”The above write up would indicate that the data on a C.D is created or scanned using a laser beam, that is it is optical in nature. Thus, a C.D would come within the definition of Electronic Form under Section 2(1) (r) of the IT Act. A C.D being an electronic form the publication by way of a C.D would come within the purview of Section 67 of the IT Act. The distribution of such a CD would amount to publication and/or transmission. “Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead Judgment Next Storylast_img read more

first_img Devon Magliozzi Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] or 607-391-0328. More by Devon Magliozzi Panelists agreed fighting wage theft requires a multi-pronged approach: strengthening enforcement agencies, passing stronger worker protection legislation, empowering workers to organize and advocate collectively for their rights. Given limited resources, state and local agencies and organizations are turning to creative partnerships to achieve these goals, including partnering with prosecutors and police.Van Houten said wage theft entered his radar this year, at the urging of the Workers’ Center Coordinator Pete Meyers. Since Meyers brought the issue to his attention, Van Houten said he’s been in conversation with other prosecutors about how to use criminal law as a tool to ensure workers are paid what they’re owed.“I’ve got a lot to learn about this,” he said, “but comparing wage theft to somebody who steals some clothing from Target – to me, wage theft is infinitely more serious and more egregious than those petty crimes.”One of the prosecutors Van Houten has been learning from is Diana Florence, attorney-in-charge of the construction task force for the Manhattan district attorney. Joining the panel via video call, Florence said her office has been successfully prosecuting wage theft cases for about three years, since becoming aware of systematic theft while investigating a workplace death.Among New York City construction companies, she said, her office has seen wage theft “as a business model.”Companies eager to win bids lower costs by systematically underpaying workers. “This is not civil,” Florence said, “this is theft, plain and simple. And the way we stop theft is we criminalize. Going after the company where it hurts – their wallet– and going after owners where it really hurts, their liberty.”Florence and Van Houten acknowledged the huge gap in resources in their offices. While Florence heads a bureau specifically tasked with prosecuting health and safety violations on construction sites, Van Houten said he has a total staff of seven assistants. He said it isn’t realistic to expect the Tompkins County District Attorney’s Office to prosecute all of the 80 to 100 wage theft complaints the Workers’ Center hears each year, never mind all the cases that are unreported.Prosecuting just the most egregious cases, he said, would nevertheless send a strong signal. “It sends a message to the community, it sends a message to prospective employers who are considering doing it,” Van Houten said.For now, criminal prosecution is not the most accessible channel for workers to make claims to unpaid wages. Panelists encouraged workers who have not been paid what they are owed to contact the Workers’ Center, DOL or NLRB to learn about their rights and come up with an appropriate advocacy strategy, and stressed that workers can come forward as soon as they suspect they are being treated unfairly.In an economy where forms of work and the role of labor organizations are changing, so too are the tools used to hold employers accountable. In the context of broader calls for criminal justice reform, professionals in the field are adapting existing tools to level the playing field for workers who have been taken advantage of. Your Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: center_img Tagged: Department of Labor, district attorney, National Labor Relations Board, tompkins county workers center ITHACA, N.Y. – Employers fail to pay tens of thousands of dollars owed to Tompkins workers each year, according to a panel of experts and advocates organized by the Tompkins County Workers’ Center and the Worker Institute at Cornell’s ILR School.Part of the reason the problem is so widespread is that penalties for carrying out wage theft are civil. Employers who fail to pay minimum wage, deny overtime pay, or misclassify workers to lower compensation might decide the risk is worth taking if the main penalty on the table is repayment of wages owed or a fine, panelists at Tuesday’s “How to Fight Wage Theft” event said. But through partnerships between labor organizations, state agencies and prosecutors, enforcement may start to look tougher in New York.Asked whether wage theft is criminal, Matthew Van Houten, Tompkins County district attorney, answered unequivocally. “Yes – it is criminal, it should be criminalized, it should be prosecuted.”Speaking on Tuesday’s panel, Van Houten said in over 20 years of work as an attorney in Tompkins County he has never seen a case of wage theft prosecuted in a criminal courtroom. But that doesn’t mean it’s not happening. The Workers’ Center recently said it handles between 80 and 100 cases of wage theft every year, and that only scratches the surface of what is happening in the community.The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is located at 115 E. MLK Jr St., Ithaca. (Photo: Facebook) The Tompkins County Workers’ Center is located at 115 E. MLK Jr St., Ithaca. (Photo: Facebook)Typically, when a worker is not paid the wages they are owed their complaint is processed through agencies including the Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board, often with advocacy centers like the Tompkins County Workers’ Center serving as intermediaries.Civil enforcement can be a powerful tool for protecting workers’ rights. According to Milan Bhatt, assistant deputy commissioner for worker protection for the NYS DOL, his agency has recovered more than $35 million in unpaid wages each of the past four years across the state. Bhatt said the sums recovered by the DOL, though, are a fraction of total wages owed to workers.Panelists acknowledged that agencies tasked with worker protection are underfunded and dependent on workers’ centers, unions, and other labor organizations to bring workplace violations to their attention and to organize workers to lodge complaints. For vulnerable groups, including undocumented immigrants, temporary workers, and independent contractors, it can be especially difficult to access support when employers are exploitative.In Tompkins County, Bhatt said, “almost all of our cases are in Ithaca.”Most likely, that’s not because Ithaca employers are particularly exploitative; it’s because the Tompkins County Workers’ Center and Worker Institute are located in Ithaca, so workers treated unfairly have better access to protections.“Where are we not covering all the ground we can?” Bhatt asked. “We’re doing a pretty good job, we think, but we’re not even scratching the surface.” last_img read more

Pike County has a beautiful landscape; let’s keep it that way.” “Nothing has changed,” Fryer said. “The roadsides are littered with everything from paper products and aluminum cans to tires and household items. And, it’s not just on these county roads at Pronto. It’s all over the county and all around that state.”Fryer said other states don’t trash their roadways.“Especially the western states,” he said. “We don’t have this kind of problem in Illinois. Go to Iowa, Nebraska, Utah, Wyoming and you won’t see littered roadways. It’s hard to understand why people toss litter out the car window when they could just as easily bag it and drop it in a trash container at home.”The Fryers picked up 16 large trash bags of litter along less than half-mile stretch of roadway at Pronto –paper products, plastic and glass bottles, aluminum cans, Styrofoam containers, garbage and unidentified items.
