However the figure would be an improvement on the previous year, the company said.Despite the fall in like-for-like sales, which strip out the impact of sales at new stores, online sales across the group rose by 11 per cent.And despite the sharp fall in Comet sales for the period, the UK chain posted “record trading between Boxing Day and New Year,” Kesa said.The company also said it had agreed a new credit facility worth 455m euros (£383m) on improved terms.This would reduce interest payments by about 500,000 euros in the current financial year, and by about 3m euros in subsequent years, it estimated.Kesa chief executive Thierry Falque-Pierrotin said: “Against a background of increased competitiveness, Darty France and the other established businesses delivered a robust performance, offset by softer trading at Comet and the developing businesses.”

The site is located in the outskirts of Villeta, in the middle of a countryside urbanization, benefiting from an extraordinary view over the surrounding landscape. In the middle of the mountain, its topography is very abrupt, especially in the upper side of the site where the view is most impressive. The design choses this area to place the building, capturing the best view and facing the challenge of the strong inclination.Save this picture!© Llano FotografíaSave this picture!+0.00 level floorSave this picture!© Llano FotografíaThe construction is composed by platforms that adapt to the existing topography. The uppermost volume houses the main spaces (social areas, services and master bedroom). This way, during its most frequent use, the house feels like a comfortable one story construction.Save this picture!© Llano FotografíaSave this picture!© Llano FotografíaOne level below, separated from the main volume, another one appears to house the guest bedrooms. Floating above the mountain, this abstract box shows its clean and simple geometry towards the entrance, becoming the main façade of the house. By separating and stepping these volumes the house allows all the inhabitable spaces to enjoy an uninterrupted view of their surroundings.Save this picture!© Llano FotografíaCirculation through the house happens through a series of stairs-patios, which create a constant relation between inside spaces, the view and the surrounding nature. The entrance patio, at the bottom level, is a dry space that offers a double height open to the sky. At the middle level, the patio has a more dense vegetation and a subtle presence of water, while the upper level is structured around patios that can be flooded, which break the mass of the house and cap the ascent from the driest to the most humid.Save this picture!© Llano FotografíaMaterials were chosen looking for durability and easy maintenance, due to the house not being permanently inhabited. Ochre tinted concrete built by using a timber formwork offers texture and coziness to the spaces. All the floors were built in natural sandstone, unifying the aesthetic of the house and making it comfortable for walking barefoot. The façade is composed by mobile panels in teak wood screens, which allow the house to close up completely when not in use and open up towards the view when inhabited.Save this picture!© Llano FotografíaThe Project relies on passive strategies to save energy. Deep overhangs protect inner spaces from rain and sun, keeping them fresh and comfortable. Green roofs blend the house with its surroundings, providing thermal insulation and reinforcing the relationship between the house and the mountain around it.

Nair at his invitation for a negotiation talk regarding the objectionable video. So, there was no occasion to invoke the offence of trespass with preparation for assault. As regards the allegation of theft of laptop and mobile phone belonging to Vijay Nair, the lawyer submitted that the women took them from his possession to hand them over to the police. Therefore, there was no dishonest intention to attract Section 392.The lawyer also mentioned that following the incident, the Kerala government decided to bring in an ordinance to deal with cyberattacks against women.Mr. Suman Chakravarthy, the public prosecutor, submitted that the accused women had posted incriminating videos of their assault on the complainant. Granting them bail will send a wrong message to the society, submitted the prosecutor. He demanded that the accused should surrender and cooperate with the criminal investigation.”Probably they did not have faith in the police and decided to do it themselves. That also needs to be taken into consideration”, Justice Menon told the Public Prosecutor.Justice Menon also told the applicant’s lawyer in a lighter vein:”If you are bold enough to go and beat up a man, why are you afraid of facing the consequences? Why are you shy about appearing before the police or going to jail?”The bench observed that there was no “dishonest intention” behind the taking away of the laptop and the mobile phone of the complainant as the accused handed them over to the police the same day.The bench also noted that the custodial interrogation of the accused may not be necessary and no recovery is also sought to be made from them. There was also doubt regarding the application of Section 452 IPC to the case, the judge added.”But vigilantism cannot be encouraged”, Justice Menon said while reserving orders for October 30.Earlier, the Additional Sessions Court, Thiruvananthapuram, had dismissed their anticipatory bail application, after observing that granting bail “would give a wrong message to the society that anybody can resort to such vandalism so as to oppress their opponents””A civilized society is expected to obey the rule of law of the country so as to maintain peace, law and order and any attack to the said fabric is actionable and cannot be viewed lightly. No one can take law into their hands on the strength of man power or muscle power”, observed the court below.The case relates to the attack made by the three accused against one Vijay P Nair, a YouTuber with a considerable number of followers, who is known for making derogatory and obscene videos about women. The attack happened on September 26, when the accused barged into the office of Vijay Nair and slapped him, abused him, and poured black oil on his face for making vulgar comments against one of them in particular and ‘feminists’ in general. They also live-streamed the visuals of the attack via Facebook Live. The women said that they were constrained to resort to the drastic step as the complaint filed before police against Vijay Nair’s video failed to elicit any response.The videos of the attack became viral sparking off intense debates in social media over the correctness of their response. After the attack, the women were booked by Thampanoor police on a complaint by Vijay Nair under IPC Sections 452 (House-trespass after preparation for hurt, assault or wrongful restraint), 294 B (sings, recites or utters any obscene song, ballad or words, in or near any public place), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 506 (criminal intimidation), 392 (punishment for robbery), 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention of the Indian Penal code).Vijay Nair was also arrested in another FIR for offences under the Information Technology Act, 2000, for posting obscene videos and is under custody at present.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Siemens partners with Total. (Credit: djedj from Pixabay.) Siemens Gas and Power has entered into an agreement with Total, a broad energy group, to advance new concepts for green liquified natural gas (LNG) production. As part of the contract, Siemens Gas and Power is conducting studies to explore a variety of possible liquefaction and power generation plant designs, with the ultimate goal of decarbonizing the production of LNG.The studies are targeting key areas, such as reducing the environmental footprint of LNG liquefaction facilities and the associated greenhouse gas emissions, plant reliability, maintainability, regulatory compliance, and development costs. Concepts to be explored include the use of gas turbine- and electric-driven compression trains in conjunction with proven single-mixed refrigerant and double-mixed refrigerant technologies; selecting equipment that can minimize or eliminate process flaring; and developing techniques to improve the efficiency of onsite power generation facilities (heat recovery systems, inlet air chilling, supplementary firing, renewables integration, battery storage, etc.).The studies are also exploring how to leverage digitalization and automation platforms to optimize plant design and achieve seamless project execution.“Siemens Gas and Power is committed to supporting the LNG industry’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions through the application of proven equipment solutions and by providing financial, technical development, and strategic support to customers in the early concept development and pre-FEED stages of projects,” said Thorbjoern Fors, CEO for Siemens Energy Oil & Gas Division. “We are proud to continue these efforts by partnering with Total to drive towards the lowest possible plant emissions profile and attain the highest degree of sustainability in LNG production.” Concepts to be explored include the use of gas turbine- and electric-driven compression trains in conjunction with proven single-mixed refrigerant and double-mixed refrigerant technologies
