As part of some of his placements, he worked at churches located in ethnically changing neighborhoods to help them adapt and grow. Battle also has served as Provost and Canon Theologian for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. In 2010, he was given one of the highest Anglican Church distinctions as “Six Preacher,” by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.

Dr. Robert J. Owens, Professor of Old Testament, says Battle “will bring to General Seminary an impressive combination of theological scholarship, pastoral ministry, international and cross-cultural service in the Anglican communion, as well as his striking success as a teacher in some of the Episcopal Church’s leading seminaries. I think our students will be greatly blessed as they encounter his theological mind, his pastor’s heart, and his hopefulness for the church as a community of justice.”Battle will begin his new position at General Seminary in fall 2015 and will teach Ethics and will lead the Graduate Anglican Seminar, as well as  intensive courses that will be offered, for credit or audit, through The Desmond Tutu Center.

Located in a residential area in North Jakarta, Indonesia, the 600 sqm house occupies a 440 sqm plot of land. This project’s site is facing a main road on the west side, and an alley on the other side (south side). We noticed that this site, particularly the one facing the main road, has a considerably large building line. And we are aware that the building line will decrease the building’s size. Based on that observation, we attempt to locate the main door on the side which facing the alley (south side); thus allowing the reduced area in the west side, to be utilized as an open-space gathering place. The open-space gathering place itself is an extension of the main living room that is purposely designed to be slightly away from the main door to keep it private.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThis house is inhabited by a small family. However, both the husband and wife come from a big family. Consequently, the potential for such large family to come to visit, spend some quality time and even stay overnight affects the space program of this house. Hence, causing the space program to be quite compact. Considering the compact programming, the concept proposed is “compartment box”. The idea is to position the spaces into two big mass boxes. Then, each box is given a bold treatment through the materials used at the façade.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThese two mass boxes come from one mass box that is subtracted by the open space. This open space is placed on the 3rd and 4th floor (rooftop); it serves to soften the rigid shape of the box and creates a lot of potential openings, so the building can breathe and get enough natural light. A reflecting pool is also built on the rooftop to help lower the building’s temperature.Save this picture!SectionIn accordance to the owners’ preference, their relatively young age, and budget consideration, the structure is designed as a modular structure, combined with modern architectural language throughout the building details. We set the building’s tone to be monochrome, with black lines element, such as the door and window frame,  to help define the space. Meanwhile the accent colors are presented through the use of loose furniture and decoration. Exposed materials are also brought consistently into the interior part of the building, such as  exposed cement in the living room, exposed painted brick in the study room, and solid wood in common spaces.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoSeveral existing big trees, which are on the west side facing the main road, are preserved as they are to give some shades to the big garden behind them. With enough shade trees, the garden is designed to be a big pool area with a deck functioned as a gathering spot and as the extension of the living room.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoProject gallerySee allShow lessZhongshuge Bookstore / Li XiangSelected ProjectsDongli Brewery / LATITUDESelected Projects Share Projects Photographs:  Mario Wibowo Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily S+I House / DP+HS ArchitectsSave this projectSaveS+I House / DP+HS Architects Photographs “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794854/s-plus-i-house-dp-plus-hs-architects Clipboard Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

The Court has directed that an exam be conducted for 11 students, including 10 petitioners and one student with a similar status as that of the petitioners. A division Bench of Justice Nageswara Rao and Justice Ravindra Bhat clarified that the order has been issued considering the peculiar circumstances of the present case in wake of the Covid19 and should not be taken as a precedent. The Court has also observed that it is not necessary to get into contentions given by the college in the present case, and taking account of the pandemic and difficulties posed by Covid 19, the students should be permitted to take the exam for First year professional MBBS The present plea was filed by students aggrieved by decision of AIIMS Gorakhpur to not permit them to take MBBS first Year professional examination and supplementary examination on account of shortage of attendance. The Petitioners contended that onset of the pandemic had made the management decide that the students leave the campus in March 2020. Since some of the petitioners belong to remote areas, they were unable to attend the online classes. The Counsel for AIIMS however submitted that even after extra classes the students did not fulfill the required criteria. As the first year exam has already been conducted, the students have to forego an academic year and take exams with their juniors. Supreme Court in its previous hearing had observed that these students should be given one last chance, and an exam should be conducted for them. “We cannot decide their fate in the exam but they should at least get an opportunity” Court had stated.

The leadership courses showhow teams can be more productive when managers use facilitation skills toclarify objectives and improve team relationships. “We believe ourmanagers will be more effective and achieve greater buy-in from their teams ifthey use a facilitative style of leadership, rather than a command-and-controlapproach,” said Louise Katz, learning executive at the BBC. The pilotresults showed that 75 per cent of the participants learned a ‘significantamount’ from the courses. “The feedback was very positive,” saidKatz. “The courses give a very good understanding of facilitativeleadership and team dynamics.” The courses were developed by trainingcompany Balance Learning and ran on the BBC intranet.
