Gillard begins coalition talks after hung house

first_img whatsapp AUSTRALIAN Prime Minister Julia Gillard last night began frantic negotiations with MPs who will decide whether her Labor party returns to power.The election looks almost certain to result in a hung parliament, with analysts claiming both Gillard and her conservative rival Tony Abbott have a chance to form a coalition.Gillard is most likely to make a pact with Green MPs, while Abbott could deal with rural independents.The negotiations have thrown the future of a proposed 30 per cent mining levy into doubt.Green MPs are likely to push for an even stricter tax on firms like Rio Tinto as they negotiate with Gillard.A victory for Abbott’s Liberal-National coalition however would almost certainly result in the tax being scrapped altogether.

The Two large, four-store construction volumes intensify the shape of the Widmi park.This  project implement an urban scale design, together with an analogy to the old street from the city of  Lenzburg.In between these two buildings, as an alley, we can find an opening courtyard towards the south. This invites you to relax and is intended to be used for social events.Save this picture!© Michael HaugWhile the building facing the road to the West and the park in the East, acts almost rigid and edgy, the courtyard facades are buckled and the aligned façades are broken.The green area in Ammerswiler Street consists in smaller groups of trees, these trees are in the middle of these alley. A trench around those trees allows the visual connection from the garage to the patio and the  garden. Such green are shall emphasize the access to the park with individual trees along the way, conforming a “Fruit garden”.Save this picture!© Michael HaugThe ground floor apartments have a private garden themselves, which it extends up to the shrubbery. These gardens are the separation between the private and semiprivate gardens.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe 74 apartments for rent go from 1.5 to 5.5 rooms. They are accessed over seven staircases from the courtyard. Moreover,  as there is no traffic inside the parcel, it is only accessible by foot or by bicycle.The outdoor spaces of the apartments are designed as loggias, aligned against the collective channel space.Save this picture!© Michael HaugThe ground floor apartments, situated opposite the courtyard, have been designed as an elevated ground floor, the private garden room being entered at the ground level.Save this picture!© Michael HaugThe colors of the facades reflect the colors of the trees and shrubbery in the area. The clear materialization makes itself a nice contrast among the green color in the surrounding area in the summer and releases heat in the cold and hazy winter’s days .Save this picture!© Michael HaugThe residential buildings were created according to  Minergie Standards (eco-friendly) with a controlled living room ventilation. On the roofs a photovoltaic power plant has been installed.

Oil firms get all-clear on subcontracted drivers

first_img Previous Article Next Article Oil company employers will continue to be able to use large numbers of subcontractors to drive tanker lorries from refineries, the DTI has confirmed.The oil industry feared that the Government would clamp down on the outsourcing practices after reports last week that companies lacked authority to send out tankers because they were driven by subcontractors rather than employees.But after the first meeting of the Fuel Taskforce last week, DTI Secretary Stephen Byers said, “Contrary to speculation we are not considering changes to the employment rights and responsibilities of employees in the oil sector. We have said on a number of occasions that the Employment Relations Act is the final piece of significant employment legislation for this Parliament. That remains the position.”BP Amoco said half of its 400 drivers are directly employed and the other half are employed by Excel Logistics. A spokesman for BP Amoco said it has full authority to send out the drivers but has chosen not to for safety reasons. “They are transporting 30,000 litres of highly flammable fuel, and the safety of our drivers is paramount,” he said. “These are not Ford Cortinas.”Both oil companies and union representatives hit back at protesters’ claims that the protests were peaceful. “There were missiles thrown at a number of cabs, tankers were followed en route and other vehicles cut in front of them,” the spokesman said. A spokeswoman for Texaco added, “We had a wry smile when we heard about these ‘peaceful’ protests. At Poole and Avonmouth, trucks had to turn back because exits were blockaded. Once they did cross the picket lines protesters tried to get into cabs.”Bill Morris, general secretary of the TGWU, said, “Drivers were told ‘We may not get you this time but we’ll get you next time.’”The fuel crisis tested HR departments across the country as they had to cope with staffing problems caused by the petrol shortages. (News, 19 September)Oil companies do not appear to be preparing their own contingency plans for the next threatened blockade of depots and refineries, due for 13 November. But they have pledged to cooperate with the Government. By Philip Whiteley Comments are closed.

Current flow in the north-west Weddell Sea

first_imgProperties of the surface and bottom circulation in the north-west Weddell and south Scotia seas in the region 59–66°S, 36–46°W are examined. The bottom currents have been recorded at different heights from 5–800 m above the seabed, and surface velocities have been obtained from the drift tracks of ARGOS buoys deployed in ice floes. The tidal regime is mixed and the power of motions at inertial frequencies is very variable and most dominant in the Scotia Sea. Flow is influenced by topography, effects of which are seen in eddy features and the damping of inertial motions in some areas. The sea ice motion is shown to be influenced by the bottom topography at very low frequencies whilst tidal periodicities observed in the north-western Weddell Sea are below the level of the noise in the region of the study. In this area the higher frequency ice motion is mainly wind driven with little of the energy being transferred to the underlying deep water.last_img read more
