MacaulayText description provided by the architects. The Nexus House, a compact home for a young family of four, occupies a small site in University Heights, a historic residential district in Madison with iconic homes by Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Keck & Keck, and many others. Successfully contesting the local preservation ordinance whose strict guidelines advocated stylistic mimicry while failing to recognize the neighborhood’s rich architectural diversity, we designed a quiet but unapologetically contemporary building, its formally restrained volume discreetly placed in the back of the trapezoidal site, where it avoids direct visual competition with its two dignified neighbors, a hundred-year old Spanish Colonial home and the Ely House from 1896, a cherished landmark on the National Register of Historic Places.Save this picture!© John J. MacaulayThe house is composed of two principal building blocks: a two-story brick podium partially carved into the site’s existing slope; and a linear cedar-clad meander that wraps up and over the podium before transforming into a cantilever, its overhang providing shade for the south-facing main level patio.  Following this binary parti, the home’s “public” functions – garage, support rooms, and an open living hall – are located in the brick base, while its “private” spaces – upper level bedrooms, baths, and a small reading room – are housed in the cedar volume.  Exterior steps lead up the slope to the home’s front door, a glazed recess with a delicate steel canopy marking the vertical joint between the two distinct building blocks.  The glass entry door opens into a small vestibule that leads into the main living hall, an open space for cooking, eating, and sitting, where a series of floor-to-ceiling windows offer arriving guests expansive, carefully framed views into the neighborhood.Save this picture!© John J. MacaulayThe deliberately neutral interiors of the living hall are complemented by a troika of dark-stained wood objects that spatially anchor the open space:  a small entertainment center; a fireplace and chimney; and a wood wall and canopy cradling an intimate side lounge, which can be separated from the living hall with large pocket doors to serve as a guest bedroom or quiet study.       Save this picture!© John J.

The residence is found inside the district Los Quebrachos in the extreme northwest of the city of San Luis (Argentina). It is a permanent home for a family consisting of a couple with three small children at the time of construction. During the design process there were very specific requests that the program had to incorporate. The most important, because of its scope and nature, was to have a large enclosed space for recreation activities and some sporting practices due to the limitations imposed by the Chorrillero wind for activities in open spaces.Save this picture!Transversal Section / Swimming PoolSave this picture!© Walter SalcedoSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe characteristics of the lot and its surroundings were considered as determinants of the formal, functional and material definition of the project.

Financial specialists should use website for certificates, says Charity Commission

first_img Howard Lake | 14 March 2006 | News As the end of the financial year approaches, the Charity Commission is today asking financial specialists to stop requesting certificates proving their clients are registered charities in order to continue to claim Stamp Duty Reserve Tax exemption. Instead, they are being told to visit the Commission’s online register of all registered charities in England and Wales.Many accountants, brokers and financial advisers believe the need for a certificate is a requirement from HM Revenue and Customs but this isn’t the case. Previously, requests for ‘certificates’ have been answered with a letter from the commission confirming the charity’s status but this will now cease as the commission targets its resources where they’re most needed.  25 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

John Skiles turned away from a pile of cardboard boxes, all labeled ‘PEACHES’ and stacked up as tall as him, before he swung his foot up to rest on another box in front of him.All empty.“I love it,” he smiled.Big crowds flocked through the first Parks Legado Farmers Market of the season on Saturday morning, all to take a look through vegetables, artisan goods, crafts, fruits like Skiles’ peaches and much more offered from about 70 local vendors. 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School Carla Braden sorts out kernels from freshly made kettle popcorn at Mariposa Produce stand Parks Legado Farmers Market Saturday morning at Parks Legado Town Center. Then they left with armloads of buys, from what vendors called the biggest and best market at Parks Legado to kick off the center’s second summer running the event.“We had 36 boxes of peaches, and about 600 pounds of produce, and it’s gone in two hours,” Skiles said a little after 10 a.m. The market opened at 8 in the morning.“Last year, it was taking almost the whole market to sell everything, so for two hours — yeah, I guarantee this market has grown exponentially,” he added.The Parks Legado Farmers Market started last summer, with organizers presenting four events over the summer months, and the market’s back for another go-around this summer.Saturday’s event marked the first of four scheduled for this summer, all on the second Saturday of each month through September — and already, this year’s first market has grown bigger, busier and more successful than the event was last year, echoed vendor Lesli Kizer.Kizer, under the tent at her own booth, glanced over glass jars filled with colorful jams and jellies offered by her business We Be Jammin — or at least what was left.“We’ve been pretty busy,” she said. “We’re out of a whole bunch of flavors, but that’s a good problem to have.“It’s doubled in size,” she added, on the crowd of buyers attending Saturday. “It’s been awesome today.”Kizer sold jams, jellies, pickles and different condiments bottled by her local company that she started in 2013. Skiles sold some locally grown squash, zucchini and cherry tomatoes, along with peaches the family bought and trucked back from Weatherford on Friday.They were among the 70 or so vendors on hand Saturday, which is a number that’s grown this year right along with the number of shoppers. About 50 vendors came to the market during each session last summer, organizing official Andrew Marshall said last week, speaking for the Sewell Family of Companies which presents the event at the shopping center the organization built in 2013.One of those new, first-time vendors, Jason Waters, said he was impressed and excited by the crowds, under his tent and behind the banner Walker-Waters Urban Farm.“You could sell anything here,” Waters said, as a potential buyer looked through his onions. He sold locally grown onions, squash, tomatoes and potatoes, alongside his wife, Chelsea Waters, who offered bottles of lotion and more from the beauty shop in Odessa she owns called Glitz House of Beauty.Jason Waters raises vegetables on his land and at his father’s place, and usually just gives extras to his employees at W&W Energy, his business in the oil industry.“This time we were like, ‘Heck, let’s take it to the farmers market. It’ll be fun,’” Waters said.Across the plaza, Yolanda Hernandez, also of Odessa, offered samples of her spice called Porras’ Spices de Vida, in her and husband Oliver’s first time at the Parks Legado market.Yolanda said they had vended at the Odessa, Texas Farmers Market presented by Medical Center Hospital and at the Briar Patch Trade Days in town, and that they planned to be back at the Parks Legado market after Saturday.“There’s a lot of people here,” Hernandez said. “I think it’s going pretty well.”The next event at Parks Legado is set to open July 14 from 8 a.m. to noon at the town center located at 7260 East Highway 191. The center will also host markets on Aug. 14 and Sept. 8. The Parks Legado market advertises itself alongside MCH’s market, which opens next on June 23.“We love it. We’re all about the farmers market, because when we get a chance, we actually get to go and shop a little bit and get some more fresh fruits and veggies and things like that,” Kizer said.“But I like the fact that it brings everybody out. It’s the good, old-fashioned shopping.”Odessa farmers market scheduleParks Legado Farmers MarketDates: July 14, Aug. 11, Sept. 8When: 8 a.m. to noonWhere: Parks Legado Town Center, 7260 E.

Previous reports have indicated that a decline in mortgage deliqnuencies. In April 2019, the total number of mortgages delinquent more than 30 days fell to 3.6%, and delinquency rates have fallen year-over-year from 4.3% in April 2018. The report also reflects a slight month-to-month decline, as 4% of mortgage were delinquent more than 30 days in March 2019.”Thanks to a 50-year low in unemployment, rising home prices and responsible underwriting, the U.S. overall delinquency rate is the lowest in more than 20 years,” Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “However, a number of metros that suffered a natural disaster or economic decline contradict this national trend. For example, in the wake of the 2018 California Camp Fire, the serious delinquency rate in the Chico, California, metro area this April was 21% higher than one year ago.”According to March’s report, the largest annual gains in serious delinquency rates came in areas impacted by Hurricanes. Panama City, Florida, had the largest increase at 1.9%.Panama City once again posted the largest annual rise in serious delinquency rates with a 1.4% increase. Albany, Georgia, recorded a 0.7% increase and Jacksonville, North Carolina, reported a 0.6% increase.”The U.S. has experienced 16 consecutive months of falling overall delinquency rates, but it has not been a steady decline across all areas of the country. Recent flooding in the Midwest could elevate delinquency rates in hard-hit areas, similar to what we see after a hurricane, said Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic.The total number of homes in foreclosure in April 2019 fell slightly to 0.4% from 0.5% the month prior.Here’s what else is happening in the Week Ahead:NAHB housing market index (Aug. 15)Census Bureau residential construction survey (Aug. 16)last_img read more

Do employees benefit from employee benefits?

first_imgDo employees benefit from employee benefits?Shared from missc on 17 Jun 2015 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Staff benefits schemes seem to be a hot topic at the moment so I thought I’d chime in with my thoughts….In years gone by the company car, paid phone bill’s or company credit card were pretty much the in domain of the professionals at the top of their game working in the most generous of companies. Now though, almost akin to my blog post on gimmicky long interview processes, companies seem to be using the benefits they offer as a marketing tool, and the list of what is being offered is getting longer and longer. There’ nothing wrong with that, but let’s dissect it a little.In recent times there has been a lot of debate over what is considered a generous benefits programme and what is going too far. For example, I refer to Facebook and Apple who opted for a very polarizing benefit of freezing any female employee’s eggs (most suggest in a bid to allow feeling more at ease delaying having children). Or Google California, as another example who trucked in snow to create a snowy wonderland for its staff. Times are of course changing and our wants and needs are evolving with the times. I totally get that we are not programmed in the same way that we were 50 years ago where social norms almost pre-defined at what ages children would enter our lives, or when we should be allowed to enjoy a brisk walk in the snow, but is this taking a “company benefit” too far?In a few less extreme examples such-as, orgs employing chefs to cook meals each day for staff, full gym in-house or even sleep pods. These all sound amazing, right? And who wouldn’t want a part of that, but something that is also worth thinking about is – Are we then blurring the lines further between our professional worlds and our personal worlds? And indeed, is this a good or bad thing? We have already seen a huge shift towards technology interoperability and never being too far away from a piece of tech that could see us struggle to “switch off” in our personal time, but we are now looking at a new age where the comforts of home-life are being brought to the office.This is not to say I wouldn’t dive straight into a sleep-pod given the chance – just food for thought and I’d be keen to hear other perspective on where boundaries should be in the creation of a solid benefits scheme… Read full article center_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.last_img read more

In addition, inspectors from Afloat Training Group Norfolk embarked aboard Donald Cook to complete a mobility-seamanship inspection.The ship first deployed for the patrol in November 2018.“TRAV gave us a great opportunity for some much needed holiday rest and relaxation,” said Master Chief Petty Officer Jeremy Douglas, command master chief of Donald Cook. “It was great to be able to enjoy the holidays at home, while simultaneously completing necessary inspections and shipboard maintenance.”Donald Cook is a multi-mission surface combatant capable of conducting exercises and operations in areas such as anti-submarine warfare and ballistic missile defense. While on patrol, Donald Cook will engage with NATO allies and partners.This is Donald Cook’s eighth FDNF patrol since becoming forward-deployed in Naval Station Rota in February 2014.last_img read more
