Flats within other towers that are instead waiting to begin works certainly are.For example there is a £560,000 two-bedroom apartment currently SSTC within Denning Point in London. It’s a former council tower block that was transferred to a social housing provider and subsequently had some of its flats upgraded into luxury units. The tower is still waiting for work to begin on removing and upgrading its cladding.The listing for the flat, which is still live online, makes no mention of the 23-storey tower’s status; it was found post-Grenfell to feature cladding that is ‘not up to standard’.Slow paceThe pace of cladding replacement is slow in England, particularly among privately-owned high-rise residential towers that feature the Aluminium Composite Material (ALC) now deemed unsafe by Building Regulations post-Grenfell.The MHCLG says that of the 201 private towers involved, two have had their cladding replaced, 12 have work under way and a further 101 have plans in place or are in development.But for the remaining 86 tower blocks, MHCLG says it has been unable to find out what’s being planned, although this has reduced from 200 in June.“The remediation of buildings with unsafe ACM cladding systems is a complex process,” the MHCLG says. “Remediation work involves addressing any issues with the exterior cladding system and broader fire safety systems for each building.”The Ministry says the 11 local authorities with the greatest concentration of towers whose cladding has failed Building Regulations tests are Brent, Liverpool, Tower Hamlets, Bristol, Manchester, Wandsworth, Greenwich Newham, Westminster and Salford.

Asked why his team sat too deep, Mourinho replied: “A little bit of a lack of personality. “We must have the personality to get out, to not accept the pressure. “The game could perfectly have ended 1-0, but we have to give some truth to their reaction.” Mourinho has been at pains to play down his team’s title chances of late, despite their 1-0 win at championship rivals Manchester City and 3-0 thumping of Newcastle at the weekend. Suggested this was a performance that underlined his ‘little horses’ claim, Mourinho added: “Yes. A ready team, a complete team kills this game. 2-0, goodbye, but we didn’t.” Mourinho, meanwhile, refused to condemn the Albion supporters for their treatment of Ramires whose every touch of the ball was greeted with a chorus of boos. Ramires was the player who contentiously earned Chelsea a penalty in the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge in October when Albion were seconds away from a shock victory. At one point when he went down under a challenge from Thievy Bifouma which resulted in him requiring treatment it resulted in a chorus of ‘Let him die!” and even louder jeers when he returned to the pitch. “That’s football. I don’t think it’s fair, but that’s football,” said Mourinho. “Next season maybe they (the fans) forget and it doesn’t happen the same. “Everything the fans do, unless there is a lack of respect with race in this kind of situation, which for me was not the case, it was just booing. That’s football.” For Albion head coach Pepe Mel, whose side are back out of the bottom three, he admitted this was his team’s best performance from his five games in charge. “I’m proud of my players,” said Mel. “In the first half we defended well, limited Chelsea’s chances, and in the second we counter-attacked well and showed a good mentality. “If we had scored earlier then we would have won the match, so for me this was our best performance against a good Chelsea team who are top.” The Blues were poised to move four points clear at the top of the table on the back of centre-back Branislav Ivanovic’s injury-time strike in the first half. But Victor Anichebe is proving something of a super sub of late for Albion because just nine days after coming off the bench to equalise in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool, the Nigerian repeated the feat against Chelsea. Press Association Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes his players “lacked a little bit of personality” to kill off West Brom as their Barclays Premier League title chances suffered a dent with a 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns. Mourinho feels Chelsea should have been out of sight before the Baggies mounted their fightback in the closing stages, with Anichebe netting his third goal of the season in the 87th minute. “For 60 minutes there was only one team, and that team couldn’t kill the game, especially in the first 15 minutes of the second half,” said Mourinho. “For (the next) 10 minutes the game was poor, and then for the last 20 minutes only one team and that team fought a lot to get the goal and the point, and in the end they deserve it. “In the first half we had complete control without creating many chances – Petr (Cech) not making one save, their strikers with not one shot. “In the second half they opened and gave us the space we didn’t have in the first half, but we were not strong enough to kill the game. “They had a reaction and we couldn’t cope with the reaction. The team stayed back, we were too deep. “I thought even if I sent on some attacking players it wouldn’t help because we were under pressure. It was impossible for my defenders to get out of the first third of the pitch. “They started putting long balls into the box, with some free kicks, corners and rebounds, and fighting for those, and they deserve.”

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… So, Sony BMG doesn’t want you to embed that AC/DC concert footage in your blog or grab the audio from that footage as an MP3? They’d probably have a fit if if you stored that footage as an MP4 on your computer and distributed it wherever you liked or – worse yet – remixed it to your heart’s content.Thanks to Tooble.tv, a fascinating tool that plays footsie with all kinds of copyright law, you can do all of the above and more. Only high school students would have the audacity (or sheer naivete) to pull off a stunt like this.That’s right: Tooble was developed by five high school students in Wallingford, Connecticut. We applaud their ingenuity and hope for their continued success, but we are rightfully concerned about the potential uses and the future of this product.Tooble runs as a desktop app. It makes downloading online video and converting it to MP4 files as simple as cutting and pasting a URL. The app also allows for conversion of audio tracks in the videos to stand-alone MP3s. The free version of the software runs on Mac and Windows and allows for YouTube downloads; the Pro version, priced for impulse purchases at around $6, works for a multitude of video-hosting sites.Users can search for videos or browse through the prescribed YouTube categories in the free version of the software.To test the app, we downloaded an embedding-disabled video of Johnny Cash’s The Wall, a song that details a prison experience we hope the creators and users of Tooble won’t have to replicate. Grabbing the MP4 took about a minute. We were able to open the file in our video editor and play around with it a bit. After our remixing was done, we were moreover able to upload our creation to Vimeo: Related Posts jolie odell Tags:#start#startups We’re hard pressed to think of more than a handful of legal use cases for this software. Much like P2P or BitTorrent software, this app creates a maelstrom of legal and moral questions. And calling to mind the sufferings of the Pirate Bay team and Napster, we wonder what’s in store for the kids who created Tooble.What do you think? As much fun as it is to grab others’ videos, do you think users have a legal right to be able to store, remix, and redistribute online video and audio content created by others? Is Tooble.tv essentially software that encourages and enables illegal behavior? Let us know in the comments.
