AIA/HUD Secretary Awards Recognize Three Outstanding Housing P…

first_img AIA/HUD Secretary Awards Recognize Three Outstanding Housing Projects Save this picture!Via Verde – The Green Way; Bronx, New York / Dattner Architects and Grimshaw Architects © David Sundberg/EstoWritten by Karissa RosenfieldMay 14, 2013 Share “COPY” Architecture News CopyThe American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Housing and Custom Residential Knowledge Community, in conjunction with the Office of the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), have recognized three recipients of the 2013 AIA/HUD Secretary Awards. The categories of the program include (1) Excellence in Affordable Housing Design (2) Creating Community Connection Award (no recipient selected this year) (3) Community-Informed Design Award and (4) Housing Accessibility – Alan J. Rothman Award. These awards demonstrate that design matters, and the recipient projects offer examples of important developments in the housing industry.“These developments prove that you can push the boundaries of design while still creating something very special that folks can actually afford,” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. “These projects took innovative visions from the drawing board and made them a part of how we live today.”Category One: Excellence in Affordable Housing Design Award: Via Verde – The Green Way; Bronx, New York / Dattner Architects and Grimshaw Architects This project has become the new model for public housing in New York City. The project was carefully crafted to accommodate the scale of the existing neighborhood and adjacent housing while adding both housing and green space to a brownfield site in the South Bronx. Landscaped green roofs and a central courtyard create 40,000 square feet of open space. Residents can grow their own fruits and vegetables as well as enjoy the evergreen grove and fruit orchard. In addition, photovoltaic panels are integrated into the south-facing areas of the project, providing enough energy to power all common areas and exterior lighting. Rainwater is collected on-site and recycled for irrigation of the gardens throughout the year. In support of the Department of Health’s Fit City initiative to promote physical fitness, stairs are located near elevators and are designed as colorful interior spaces with natural light and ventilation. The project is on track to receive LEED® Gold certification.  Category Three: Community-Informed Design Award: Save this picture!Community Learning Center; Leominster, Massachusetts / Abacus Architects + Planners © Chuck Choi Community Learning Center; Leominster, Massachusetts / Abacus Architects + Planners This 2,000-square-foot facility, built on the edge of a public housing development, was only possible through the efforts and contributions of students, teachers, residents, alumni, builders, and suppliers, all coordinated and overseen by the architecture firm. The local housing authority received a grant to cover half the cost of the facility and made arrangements with the nearby vocational/technical high school to provide the labor and drafting. The architects helped participants develop the building program, ensured that the project met the exacting standards of the funder, and worked with the teenage crew to bring design sketches into reality. The building is clad in multicolored fiber-cement panels with articulated aluminum joints. South-facing windows at the front entry provide passive solar heating in the winter, and deep overhangs and deciduous trees provide summer shade. Particleboard partitions composed of recycled content, mark individual study areas. Light floods in from all sides, and sliding doors with glazed perforations provide acoustical privacy for story telling or conferences.  Category Four: Housing Accessibility – Alan J. Rothman Award: Save this picture!New Accessible Passive Solar Housing; Stoneham, Massachusetts / Abacus Architects + Planners © Bruce Martin New Accessible Passive Solar Housing; Stoneham, Massachusetts / Abacus Architects + Planners This project, for a small public housing authority, responded to a need to provide affordable accessible housing that could be used as a model for future development. In addition, the project had to embody the spirit of universal design principles by meeting high standards for energy efficiency and passive solar heating. Every element of the buildings as well as the site was designed to meet ADA and state accessibility requirements. The sloping topography of the site was carefully graded to ensure all the inclines were below five percent and to avoid the ramps and double railings that often make accessible buildings seem cut off from the surrounding landscape. South-facing windows bring in the low winter sun, and deciduous trees and broad overhangs provide summer shade. Artificial lighting is never needed during the day, and blue sky and green trees are visible in every direction. High-density foam insulation, high-performance windows, and radiant heating in the concrete floors keep the apartments comfortable and minimize energy usage.2013 AIA/HUD Secretary Awards Jury: Kathleen Dorgan, AIA, Chair, Dorgan Architecture & Planning Luis Borray, Assoc.

FRSB to target £1 million plus charities

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. FRSB to target £1 million plus charities The Fundraising Standards Board is to redouble efforts to recruit charities with voluntary incomes greater than £1 million. The move has been announced in the organisation’s annual report, which includes it as one of three “refined” goals for the next three to five years.The other two goals – which reflect the priorities emphasised by the government in its response to two enquiries into the Charities Act by Lord Hodgson and the Public Administration Select Committee – are:Build public awareness that fundraising is regulatedDevelop the next phases of the audit programme to ensure members’ compliance.Writing in the annual report, which was published this week, Nick Hurd, Minister for Civil Society said:“I would also urge any £1m+ fundraising charities that haven’t yet made the commitment to do so now, and join the rest of the charity sector in using the tick logo to give the public confidence in their charity’s fundraising.” Advertisement  52 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 21 March 2014 | Newscenter_img Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Law / policy Membership of the FRSB now stands at 1,440 charities, of which 366 have voluntary incomes between £1 million and £10 million and a further 83 have voluntary incomes greater than £10 million. One fifth of the 225 charities that joined the FRSB last year had voluntary incomes greater than £1 million.Number of £1+ charitiesAlistair McLean, FRSB’s chief executive says in the annual report that FRSB has “identified a core target group of organisations” to recruit into membership. But speaking to UK Fundraising, McLean said a first step would be to assess the size of the potential market.The Charity Commission lists 5,323 charities with voluntary incomes between £1 million and £10 million and a further 981 above £10 million.“A lot of these charities are grant making trusts and foundations who don’t do any fundraising,”McLean said.“While there is great merit in trusts and foundations signing up to the FRSB, we need to convince those charities [that do a lot of voluntary fundraising] that ought to be members but aren’t.”And a list of the top 1,000 charities ranked by donations produced by CAF in 2012 contained many organisations that would do little fundraising from the public, but rely on statutory, endowment, corporate or grant income, including NHS trusts, foundations, colleges and arts organisations.“We have a job of work to do to ascertain how big our market share is, but perhaps it is greater than we think,”McLean said.However, the FRSB’s CEO said there would be no membership drive or advertising campaign. Instead the FRSB would be seeking to persuade charities into membership by continually raising awareness of how fundraising is regulated.“I think for some charities, FRSB membership is not on their radar and I absolutely think that having FRSB membership included on the Charity Commission register will help in that respect,”he said.McLean also said that new “refined goal” of raising public awareness would come through more charities using the tick logo and joint initiative with the Charity Commission and other regulatory bodies.“It’s not about promoting the work of the FRSB, it about ensuring the public know that the sector is regulated and who to approach when things go wrong.”  51 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Required fields are marked * EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS The one question dominating world news this past week has been, “How can you possibly lose something as large as a 777 jumbo jet?” And yet, that is exactly what appears to have happened. Malaysia flight 370 left Kuala Lumpur last Saturday, March 8 at 12:41 a.m. bound for Beijing, China. At 1:30 a.m., 45 min. after takeoff, air traffic controllers in Vietnam received the last contact with the plane. All attempts to discover its whereabouts have led to dead ends. It’s like flight 370 simply vanished into thin air.Equally mysterious is the fact that the aircraft’s transponder suddenly ceased to function at about the same time as the last radio contact. A transponder is a radio transmitter located in the cockpit that works with ground radar. When it is contacted by radar, it returns what is called a “4 digit squawk code,” that helps locate the aircraft’s position, altitude and distinct call sign. This enables air-traffic controllers to identify the flight and track its altitude and trajectory.Typically, the transponder remains on and can also be used by the pilot to send a code indicating an emergency such as a hijacking, communications failure or plane malfunction. What might cause a transponder to suddenly cease transmitting? Something catastrophic like an explosion or a massive mechanical failure could do it. But it can also be deliberately turned off from the cockpit.In trying to understand what happened to flight 370, the fact that the transponder cut off has led to speculations of hijacking, an act of terrorism, or even deliberate pilot manual turn off for unknown reasons. The possible area in which the plane may have gone down is mostly ocean and so vast that it may never be located. But the search continues, and probably will for some time to come because we refuse to simply lose something as large as a jumbo jet.While we can’t believe that it’s possible to lose something as big as a jumbo jet, people often feel that they can’t find God. He seems distant and unreachable to us. Maybe we used to have contact with Him, but now He seems to have disappeared, vanished off our spiritual radar.This happens in spite of His reassurances that He is everywhere and He never leaves or forsakes us. (Deuteronomy 31:6b) Psalm 139:7–10 tells us: “Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.”How can we possibly lose Someone as big as the Creator of our universe? When we can’t seem to find God, we need to ask ourselves, “Is your transponder on?” When we turn off “our transponder” we cease to communicate with Him, and it feels like He disappearsKeep your transponder on! Take God at His word and continue to communicate with Him in prayer, praise,and worship. Meditate on Scripture, even when it feels like He’s disappeared. One of my favorite verses to meditate on is Jeremiah 31:3: “I’ve never quit loving you and I never will. Expect love, love and more love!” (The Message Bible) I guarantee if you keep your receptivity to Him open, He will communicate loud and strong with you!Danny Silk (l) and Bob Hartley (r)Please join us this Sunday at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. We have a guest speaker in the morning, Danny Silk at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. and Bob Hartley at 2:00 p.m.Pastor CheHROCK Church at the Ambassador Auditorium, 131 S.

No convictions in most Limerick drink driving cases

first_imgby Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up ONLY a third of drink driving cases brought before Limerick District Court and a quarter of those at Newcastle West court have resulted in a conviction.According to court records for the period between January 2013 and last May, only 303 convictions were recorded from the 800 cases listed at Limerick District Court. 19 driving licences were endorsed during that time.At Newcastle West Court, only 57 convictions secured of the 195 cases listed with only five driving licences endorsed. None of the drivers convicted at Abbeyfeale court had their licences endorsed.The figures released by the Department of Justice for Limerick are among the lowest rate of convictions in the country with the national average showing 40 per cent of drink driving cases resulting in convictions.In the Limerick court districts, less than 10 per cent of those convicted had their licences endorsed while the national average showed that 20 per cent of convicted drivers had their licences endorsed.Nationally, more than 20,000 people were brought before the courts for drink driving and 6,709 were convicted.The Irish figures are in contrast to rates in England and Wales where 97 per cent of drink driving cases brought before the courts result in a conviction.The Department of Justice said that not all of the cases listed before the courts have been finalised and in some instances, some summonses that have not been served.A number of the cases have also been adjourned pending the appeal of a High Court ruling that drivers should be be given results of their breathalyser test in both Irish and English.

Business and unions slam EC working time proposals

first_imgBusiness and unions slam EC working time proposalsOn 28 Sep 2004 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Unions and employers were united in condemning new European Commission (EC)proposals aimed at tightening up regulations on working hours. The EC’s proposal states that the UKor any EU country can continue to apply the individual opt-out to the 48-hourlimit, but that it would be done by collective agreement in the workplace. Theperiod for calculating the average 48-hour week would also be increased fromfour months to a year, although no one will be able to work longer than 65hours in any one week. EU commissioner for employment and social affairs StavrosDimas described the proposal as “a balancedpackage of measures that protect the health and safety of workers whileintroducing greater flexibility and preserving competitiveness”. The TUC said the changes were disappointing and will satisfy no one. Generalsecretary Brendan Barber said: “These reformsshow the EC has failed to grasp the scale of the UK’slong-hours culture and the damage it is doing to our workforce andeconomy.” UK bosseswill still be able to rely on pressuring staff to work long hours instead ofadopting safe, efficient and productive working practices, Barber said. The CBI pledged that the UK’sbusiness community would fight “tooth and nail” against theproposals. Deputy director-general John Cridland said: “This is an attempt to broker acompromise that has completely backfired. “The proposals show a clear misunderstanding of the UK’sindustrial relations culture, which serves this country well.” Cridland believes it is good that the EC isallowing the opt-out to remain, but it is wrong to give the trade unions a vetoover what should be an individual decision. “The proposals would underminethe individual’s right to choose the hours they work,” he said. Industry reactionMike Emmott,employee relations adviser, CIPD”Our research shows that the majority of long-hours workers don’t wantthe opt-out removed. While we agree that managers should not be able to forceemployees to work long hours, it is not clear why workers, through theirunions, should be able to force their managers not to work long hours.”David Yeandle,deputy director of employment policy, manufacturers’ association EEF”The announcement has done nothing to allay our concerns. We areunhappy about the prospect that trade unions could have a veto on individualemployees being able to reach agreement with their employer about the number ofhours they work.”Owen Warnock, employment law partner, Eversheds”While the opt-out from the 48-hour week still remains, it is in a muchmore restricted form and will mean considerable paper-pushing. The maximum65-hour working week presents problems for many industries, where employeeswork in concentrated periods and then have a long break.”By Daniel Thomas Comments are closed.

Another city council applies to Secretary of State to ban To Let boards

first_imgTo Let boards in five key student-dominated streets near to Lincoln city centre are to be banned after a survey found that a quarter of all properties featured boards.Describing them as “eyesores”, the city’s council says it has recently undertaken several consultations with residents in the affected areas and that 85 of the 134 respondents said they favoured a total ban.The council has now applied to the Secretary of State for the Regulation 7 Direction to be removed for the streets most affected –  Monks Road, the West End, Sincil Bank, Union Road and Waterloo Street – and, if granted the powers, the council says it will ban To Let boards outright.“It’s shocking to think that some parts of the city have around 25% of the properties covered in To Let Boards, and between the years 2004 and 2016 we have seen the number of complaints grow steadily, so we are aware that there is a problem,” says City of Lincoln Council Planning Manager Kieron Manning (pictured, left).“Now we have Executive approval, we can carry out the wishes of the majority of residents and apply to have the boards removed.”Local agents aren’t happy about the move and a spokeswoman from the local Winkworth franchise, Sarah Waldeck (pictured, right), told the BBC that “from an advertising point of view it’s important for us, and it makes people aware of availability. It is fairly close to the city”.The ban has the backing of students in Lincoln, whose Student Union Vice President of Welfare and Community Connor Delany (pictured, left) recently claimed that To Let boards left outside properties made them a target for thieves.“If the property has an advertising board outside, it is a big target on the backs of students. I believe the boards tell thieves that the owner is a student, and that they will probably leave the door unlocked,” he said.“It also tells thieves that the tenants are not going to be in the house during the holidays.”  Kieron Manning Student Union Regulation 7 Direction signboards City of Lincoln Connor Delany to let boards winkworth February 20, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
