This design of a new family home, located on a tight site off a narrow laneway in Dublin City Centre, responds to its restricted context by creating a central courtyard to maximise natural light and spatial quality. By splitting the plan into two main spatial volumes, the open courtyard allows the linking areas to benefit from dual aspect and a visual dialogue that contains a very carefully considered palette of colours and materials.Save this picture!© Ste MurraySave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Ste MurrayThe break up of the the building’s main elements, defined in elevation by the horizontal structural lines, help to identify the structure and functions contained behind. The building profile is further strengthened with a deliberately weighted treatment to the openings at first and ground floor level adding to the aura of secrecy as to what’s contained within.Save this picture!Sections The floor plan of the dwelling is conceived as a flexible pattern or weave of built and unbuilt spaces stitched together around the central circulation route linking the split level accommodation. The central courtyard becomes an outdoor room and brings the experience of landscape and foliage into the core of the dwelling and stimulates a strong spatial dialogue between opposing areas.Save this picture!© Ste MurrayProject gallerySee allShow less15 Rarely Seen Details Of The ParthenonMiscTeaching Block Arenals / Lola Romera + Marta Clavera + Francisco MansillaSelected Projects Share Prices Lane / ODOS ArchitectsSave this projectSavePrices Lane / ODOS Architects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/872758/prices-lane-odos-architects Clipboard ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/872758/prices-lane-odos-architects Clipboard “COPY” Prices Lane / ODOS Architects Area:  160 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2016 Year:  CopyHouses•Dublin, Ireland Photographs Projects “COPY” CopyAbout this officeODOS architectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDublinIrelandPublished on June 05, 2017Cite: “Prices Lane / ODOS Architects” 05 Jun 2017.

Now it’s Milwaukee’s turn: Fast food workers walk out

first_imgPhoto: Occupy RiverwestOn May 15 in Milwaukee, hundreds of workers walked off the job at fast-food restaurants, including McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Old Country Buffet and Popeye’s.The strikers from across the city, after converging with community allies at the Milwaukee County courthouse, marched in the hundreds to the Grand Avenue Mall for a mass rally that shut down Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee’s busiest street. The mall contains numerous restaurants and shops that are low-wage and hire workers for erratic, part-time weekly schedules.Organizing with Raise Up MKE, the fast-food workers, mostly African-American, are demanding a $15-per-hour wage and the ability to organize a union without harassment or reprisals from bosses. Milwaukee is the fifth city in the last month to have a fast-food workers’ strike. Workers in Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis and New York have also walked off the job to fight back against the $200-billion-dollar fast-food industry.“This is not living. I’m struggling every day I wake up. When you get paid $7.25 or $7.75, you’re always worried about money. Worrying about money is probably the most stressful thing in life,” says a striker in a video shown at the Raise Up MKE website.On May 16, the strikers were accompanied back to work by labor-community allies.The Milwaukee strikers are receiving support from many labor-community organizations, including Citizen Action Wisconsin, Milwaukee Inner Cities Allied for Hope, the Service Employees union, Wisconsin Jobs Now, the Bail Out the People Movement, the Occupy movement, the Wisconsin AFL-CIO and Workers World Party.“The Wisconsin State AFL-CIO is proud to stand in solidarity with striking fast-food workers, whose actions today are calling attention to income inequality, worker exploitation, and the right to a living wage and to a union,” said Phil Neuenfeldt, president of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO on May 15.For more information, to support the striking workers and to join the fight, see raiseupmke.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Wildfires Leave Behind Billion-Dollar Losses

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Tagged with: California Wildfires Camp Fires CoreLogic Fannie Mae FEMA Freddie Mac Tom Larsen Woolsey Fires Previous: Kevin Cooke Jr. Joins Auction.com Next: Dualities of the Housing Market Sign up for DS News Daily The deadly blaze that tore into many parts of California has finally been contained, officials announced on Sunday. However, it has left behind a trail of losses between $15 billion and $19 billion, according to an analysis by CoreLogic.The report contains the updated residential and commercial loss estimates from the wildfires based on the latest post-containment perimeter of both the Camp and Woolsey Fires. The analysis recorded a total loss in the range of $11 billion and $13 billion from the Camp Fire, the most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. Additionally, estimated losses from Woolsey Fire in Southern California are estimated to be between $4 billion to $6 billion. Residential and commercial properties account for building, content, and additional living expenses. The estimated losses include damage caused by fire, smoke, demand surge and debris removal. The residential loss from Campfire alone is between $8 billion to $9 billion. Woolsey fires ravaged infrastructure worth $3.5 to $5.5 billion in the residential space and $0.5 billion in commercial losses. Since fire is covered under a standard homeowners’ policy, the majority of homeowners are likely to have some protection from the financial challenges surrounding recovery, the analysis indicated. As part of FEMA’s federal aid program to help those affected by the fire, a loan of up to $2 million was made available for business property losses not fully compensated by insurance.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have authorized servicers to suspend or reduce homeowner’s mortgage payments immediately for up to 90 days if they have been affected by a disaster. Payment forbearance of up to 12 months is available in many circumstances. Foreclosures and other legal proceedings were also suspended.“These wildfires have been a personal and financial tragedy for many families,” Tom Larsen, principal, Industry Solutions at CoreLogic said.“The proper estimation of the value of a home is critical because often in situations of wildfire, the home is completely lost. A deficient valuation can lead to a situation where homeowners have inadequate funding to replace their home.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News, Servicing California Wildfires Camp Fires CoreLogic Fannie Mae FEMA Freddie Mac Tom Larsen Woolsey Fires 2018-11-27 Donna Joseph Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Donna Joseph Home / Daily Dose / Wildfires Leave Behind Billion-Dollar Losses Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Wildfires Leave Behind Billion-Dollar Lossescenter_img Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago November 27, 2018 3,334 Views Donna Joseph is a Dallas-based writer who covers technology, HR best practices, and a mix of lifestyle topics.

The contention was that only the State legislature is competent to make a law for construction of new roads traversing through the open green fields, where no road exists and only in case of an existing road/highway, would the Central Government have 52 power to declare it as a national highway. Referring to Entry 13 of List II (State List) and Entry 23 of List I (Central list) of the Seventh Schedule, it was contended that the Central Government had no power to invoke Section 2(2) of the 1956 Act, as it merely enables the Central Government to declare an existing highway to be a national highway. Addressing this contention, the bench headed by Justice AM Khanwilkar observed that the fact that Entry 13 of List II bestows exclusive power upon the legislature of any State concerning subject “roads”, cannot be the basis to give restricted meaning to Entry 23 in List I, dealing with all matters concerning “national highways”. It said: Entry 23 in List I refers generally to “highways” declared or to be declared by the Parliament as national highways and all matters connected therewith. This empowers the Parliament to declare any stretch/section across any State as a highway for being designated as a national highway. There is no indication in the Constitution to limit the exercise of that power of the Parliament only in respect of an existing “highway”. Further, whenever and wherever the question of legislative competence is raised, the test is whether the law enacted, examined as a whole, is substantially with respect to the particular topic of legislation falling under the concerned list. If the law made by the Parliament or the legislature of any State has a substantial and not merely a remote connection with the Entry under which it is made, there is nothing to preclude the concerned legislature to make law on all matters concerning the topic covered under the Union List or the State List, as the case may be. On the issue whether the 1956 Act is a law ascribable to Entry 23 of the Union List and it provides for construction of a national highway on a non­ existing road/highway traversing through green­field lands, the bench, also comprising of Justices BR Gavai and Krishna Murari observed that the Act does not constrict the power of the Central Government to notify any stretch/section (not being an existing road/highway) within any State, to be a national highway. It said:A priori, the Central Government is free to construct/build a new national highway keeping in mind the obligations it has to discharge under Part IV of the Constitution for securing a social order and promotion of welfare of the people in the concerned region, to provide them adequate means of livelihood, distribute material resources as best to subserve the common good, create new opportunities, so as to empower the people of that area including provisioning new economic opportunities in the area through which the national highway would pass and the country’s economy as a whole. The availability of a highway in any part of the State paves way for sustainable development and for overall enhancement of human well­being including to facilitate the habitants thereat to enjoy a decent quality of life, creation of assets (due to natural increase in market value of their properties) and to fulfil their aspirations of good life by provisioning access to newer and present­day opportunities.Upholding the High Court view which rejected the challenge on the ground of lack of legislative competence, the bench further observed:On close examination, the 1956 Act, as amended and applicable to the present case, is an Act to authorise Central Government to declare the notified stretches/sections in the State concerned as a highway to be a national highway; and for matters connected therewith including acquisition of “any land” for building or construction of a new highway (which need not be an existing road/highway). The substance of this Act is ascribable to Entry 23 of the Union List and matters connected therewith.CASE:  Project Director, Project Implementation Unit vs.P.V.

Some of them had enjoyed a virtual tour of the North Pole with Magee at an earlier Rotary meeting and were anxious to hear about his journey south, to the “most magnificent desolated place” on the planet.While in Puta Arenas, Magee participated in a tradition that is believed to bring good luck to those who kiss the toe of the statue of Magellan.With that done and that bit of luck in his favor, Magee awaited his flight to the base camp on the Antarctica.  “Everything down there is weather dependent,” he said. “We had been told not to make any plans for at least 30 days following our return date. There was no guarantee when we might be able to return to Chile.” Skip Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits That was just part of the challenge for modern day polar explorers.When Magee and his group were given the green light for the South Pole, he said a flood of excitement washed over him. The long flight to the South Pole resulted in a landing on blue ice. “The runway was lined with black garbage bags filled with snow and flashing mirrors guided the plane to its landing,” Magee said. “As we walked to the base camp, the Patriot Hills were in the distance. They were called hills but they were really mountains. The sun was bright and hot but it was 10 below zero.”The adventurers were assigned to two-man tents that warmed to 30 degrees.“At 30 degrees, you would think you were in a freezer but, with all your clothing, it was actually warm inside the tents. The sleeping bags were designed for up to 100 degrees below.” Magee said. “The tents had to be kept closed at all times to keep the snow from blowing inside. The wind could get up to 90 miles per hour.” Book Nook to reopen Troy attorney Tim Magee, right, was the program guest of Rotarian Chip Wallace at the Wednesday meeting of the Brundidge Rotary Club. Magee took the Rotarians and guests on a virtual tour of the Great White Continent of Antarctica.Tim Magee went to the jumping off place. And, that’s not a place that many ever go or desire to go.But for Magee, Puta Arenas, Chile, was the jumping off place to the Geographic South Pole and that’s exactly where he wanted to go.Magee was the program guest of Rotarian Chip Wallace at the Wednesday meeting of the Brundidge Rotary Club. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder For the group to make the 600-plus mile flight to the Geographic South Pole, three things had to line up.“We had to wait,” Magee said. As he waited at the base camp, Magee surveyed that “fantastic and amazing place.” “There was nothing but desolation,” he said. “The entire environment was pristine. I was amazed that snow didn’t cover everything. Nothing there ever melts so everything eventually gets covered up.”At the South Pole, Magee said 28 below is a blistering beach day.When Magee’s group was given the green light for take off to the Geographic South Pole, he could hardly contain his excitement.At takeoff, the plane to the Geographic South Pole soared to a height of 60 feet and the n climbed higher but not nearly as high as Magee’s spirits.When Magee arrived at the pole, he took advantage of his six hours by soaking up and basking in his surroundings. The Geographic South Pole was designated by a stainless steel “pole.” But, for Magee, it was the realization of dream, of a desire, to travel to “the poles.” “To stand at the top of the world … and at the bottom, it was an unforgettable experience,” he said.Magee had spent five weeks getting to the South Pole and he spent six hour at the pole.He has hundreds of photographs of his polar experiences but they don’t compare to the thrill he experiences at the memory of those excursions.Magee has traveled the world over. He has experienced 47 states, all seven continents and 35 countries. That’s quite a feat for boy from rural northeast Iowa.But Magee always comes back home. He’s a Troy boy at heart.
