Støperigaten is a residential apartment building where our aim was to create first rate city dwellings, maximizing qualities such as optimal light conditions, generous ceiling heights, flexibility and common spaces Save this picture!© Stian RobberstadThe project’s design emerges from a creative interpretation of the zoning plan, which opened for the possibility to design all of the apartments as duplexes with a double high living room. The project has been specifically designed to meet the demands for affordable high-quality residential livingspaces. The sizes and lay-outs of the apartments are flexible in order to meet the changing demands of the residents and all units have a section which can easily be sublet.

iStock/MattGush(NEW YORK) — Local law enforcement officials across the country are rapidly making major operational changes in preparation for the continued spread of coronavirus, as they face potential strains in resources and staffing without precedent in modern American history.While policing is a public service centered around direct interactions with members of the public, several departments have already sought to limit responses to certain incidents and prioritize arrests of serious and violent offenses over some misdemeanor crimes.Steve Casstevens, the head of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) told ABC News Wednesday that “consistently” across the country, departments are changing the way they respond to calls in cases where an officer is not needed on scene.“We’re looking at essential calls for service,” Casstevens, who is also the police chief of Buffalo Grove, Illinois, said in an interview. Situations like losing a license, getting into a fender bender “don’t require an emergency response or a sworn officer to respond to.”In Chicago, the police department has told officers “that certain crimes can be handled via citation and misdemeanor summons as opposed to physical arrest,” spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told ABC News.The measures, officials explained, are intended to protect not just the police and sheriffs who come into contact with citizens — but limit crowding in jails that could lead to rapid spread of the virus among vulnerable populations. Sheriffs around the country are also raising alarm about the potential crisis of the virus entering local jails, the majority of which do not have in-house medical care, according to Sheriff David Mahoney, the incoming president of the National Sheriffs Association.“We’re working with all of our law enforcement partners, local, state and federal, to decrease the number of people who are physically arrested and brought to jail,” Mahoney, the sheriff of Dane County, Wisconsin told ABC News in a phone interview. “In my county what we have asked our chiefs of police in our 10 cities, our village police departments, our state law enforcement and our federal partners is to look for alternatives to incarcerating people in jail, look for opportunities to cite with a ticket or order in and give a court date to appear.”Additionally, Mahoney said he’s working with probation and parole officials in his own jurisdiction to avoid incarcerating probation violators who don’t pose a public risk, and to release individuals currently in jail for minor probation violations.The policy shifts echo a series of recommendations made by at least 30 district and county prosecutors in a letter this week that urged officials to “adopt cite and release policies” for offenses that pose no immediate physical threat to the broader public, including simple drug possession.The prospect of departments announcing that certain crimes will not lead to arrest has caused alarm among some in the law enforcement community, however.“It sends a message out to criminals that you’ve got a free pass right now while all this is going on, which is the wrong message to send,” said Don Mihalek, executive director of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association and an ABC News contributor. “Of course all of this concerns over exposure and I think you’re seeing law enforcement agencies trying to address exposure issues, which is tough for them because law enforcement’s job is to interact with people, particularly suspects, and be out on the streets.”In Philadelphia, Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw expressed concern on Wednesday after reports emerged that officers had been instructed to stop making arrests for certain non-violent crimes until next month.Outlaw said that the department “is not turning a blind eye to crime.”“Persons who commit certain non-violent offenses will be arrested at the scene,” Outlaw said. “Once their identity has been confirmed, they will be released and processed via arrest warrant.”Agencies such as the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department and the Rhode Island State Police expressed confidence about their ability to handle the crisis and said they remain fully operational and not paring down operations, department spokespeople told ABC News.An additional burden facing officers will be enforcing the orders from governors and local officials seeking to limit the amount of people allowed to gather in certain places in order to stop the spread of the virus, with some threatening criminal penalties for those who refuse to comply.In Maryland, where Gov. Larry Hogan issued an order banning the gathering of more than 50 people, police told ABC News that if the situation warrants, they will take the “the appropriate action” to control crowds.“Maryland State Police response to a complaint will be prompt and appropriate,” Col. Woodrow Jones III, the agency’s superintendent, said in a statement. “Depending on the call and location, we will first make contact with the owner or manager of the establishment. If voluntary compliance does not occur, we will take enforcement action, in cooperation with the local state’s attorney. That could result in the issuance of a criminal summons or warrant, or it could result in immediate arrest, depending on the circumstances in the particular situation,.”Jones said that a violation of the governor’s executive order could be punishable by one year in jail or a $5,000 fine.

Previous Article Next Article Employers that ask staff whether they are gay, to comply with new lawsoutlawing discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, risk breachinghuman rights and privacy laws. Many organisations are considering gay ‘audits’ to try to avoid compensationclaims for discrimination under the Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation)Regulations, which come into force on 1 December. Conciliation service Acas has released draft guidance which states‘organisations may wish to consider whether to ask a question about sexualorientation on their equal opportunities questionnaire’. However, Hazel Oliver, employment law expert at law firm Lewis Silkin,warned that collecting information on sexual orientation could breach the HumanRights Act 1998. She added that such questions could also qualify as theprocessing of sensitive personal data under the Data Protection Act 1998, whichrequires consent from staff. She said asking questions about sexual discrimination is contrary to thespirit of the new laws, which don’t require staff to reveal their sexualorientation, even in order to make a claim. “Claims can be made for discriminatory treatment based on anindividual’s perceived sexual orientation, without them needing to revealwhether that perception is correct,” she added. “The anonymous collection of information on a voluntary basis may bejustifiable if it is done to monitor the make-up of the workforce, and to checkfor any under-representation of a particular group or statistical evidence ofdiscrimination.” Frank Howell, director of diversity at merchant bank JP Morgan, said thefirm asks its staff about their sexual orientation as part of its staffsatisfaction survey, and to help create a picture of the culture of thebusiness. He added that the survey was anonymous, and had the backing of JP Morgan’sgay networking group, Pride.

By Tim R. MurphyUniversity of GeorgiaWeed control in lawns is more than just using a herbicide. If youwant a high-quality, aesthetically appealing lawn, you’ll need anintegrated weed management strategy.IWM plans use preventive, cultural, mechanical and chemical meansto control weeds in home lawns. Putting them together in anoverall plan involves five parts.1. Scout the lawn and identify problemweeds. Since some species infest lawns only in certaintimes of the year, scout at least twice per year.Scout for winter annual weeds in December to early February.Winter annuals are small then, and you can easily kill them withpostemergence herbicides. For the same reason, scout for summerannuals such as crabgrass in late April to July.It’s good to scout in late summer and fall, too, to see howeffective the summer weed control has been. And scout in latespring to see how well the winter program worked.Scouting isn’t hard. You do have to keep accurate records ofwhere the weeds are, so you can decide how to best manage them.Do this by drawing a representative map of the lawn.Scout the lawn by walking or riding over the area. Most peoplezigzag with random stops along the way. At each stop, record theweed species and their density. Mark them as low density (1percent to 10 percent of the plants), medium (11 percent to 20percent) or high (more than 20 percent).There aren’t any set thresholds for weeds in turf. A low densitycould be fine to some people, while the same density level wouldbe unthinkable to others.2. Know the life cycle of weeds youfind. Identification references usually list the weed’slife cycle. If it’s an annual, you may be able to use apreemergence herbicide for control. If it’s a perennial such asdandelion, you’ll have to use a postemergence herbicide.3. Record any problems you find.This may include thin turf caused by disease or insects, drainageproblems, drought, incorrect mowing height or frequency,nonadapted turf species, compacted soils, shade, mechanicaldamage or not enough mulch cover.Weeds often indicate soil, management and environmental problems.For example: Finding sedges (perennial kyllinga, purple nutsedge, annualsedges) may mean the site is too wet, either from overwatering orpoor drainage.Drought-tolerant weeds such as pink purslane, annuallespedeza and goosegrass can be a sign that you need to watermore.Certain weeds such as annual bluegrass, prostrate knotweedand broadleaf plantain thrive in compacted soils.Mowing the grass too short will favor weeds such as annualbluegrass, common chickweed, crabgrass and dandelion.A high weed population in dense shade may mean there isn’tenough sunlight for the grass. Volume XXIXNumber 1Page 27 Be sure you correct these problems. That will enable the turf toproperly grow and compete with weeds.4. Develop a good control program forproblem weeds. Use whatever methods — preventive,cultural, mechanical and chemical — will help control the weeds.If moisture-loving weeds are a problem, correct the irrigation orsoil drainage as part of an IWM plan that uses labeledherbicides, too. Check the success of this two-phase program attimes after you start the plan.5. Properly maintain the turf. Thefirst line of defense against weeds has always been, and probablyalways will be, a thick, healthy, properly maintained turf.Maintain proper soil fertility and pH levels. Irrigate properly.Control other pests. Mow at the correct height and frequency forthe turf species. These practices will make most chemical weedcontrol programs more effective.IWM doesn’t mean eliminating herbicides. In fact, you may evenuse more in the first few years as your scouting finds otherproblem weeds. Over time, though, using a proper IWM plan shouldlead to using fewer herbicides.(Tim Murphy is an Extension Service weed scientist with theUniversity of Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)
