RIBA calls for more new homes…

first_imgThe Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has welcomed the Government’s recent commitments to increasing the numbers of new build houses, including the announcement on funding for Housing Zones across England. But the RIBA has also warned that the whole exercise could prove futile if the Government fails to put quality at the heart of this investment.RIBA went on to call on MPs from all political parties to vote for the amendment to the Housing and Planning Bill calling for the adoption of a minimum space standard into national building regulations. This will ensure new build homes are large enough for families and built to last.RIBA President Jane Duncan (left) said, “Whilst this new focus on quantity is to be applauded, the Government can no longer ignore the poor quality of some of our new housing stock, especially as it ploughs public money into housebuilding. Our latest report, ‘HomeWise: Space Standards for Homes’ concluded that some new homes being built in England are still too small and that a minimum space standards for new dwellings must be adopted into building regulations.“These aren’t outlandish demands; they simply ensure that all new build homes are of an adequate size.”Download the full – and very interesting report at:https://www.architecture.com/RIBA/Campaigns and issues/Homewise/Homewise.aspxnew build houses land and new homes new homes RIBA Royal Institute of British Architects January 20, 2016The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgMontpelier, VT – The Vermont Attractions Association (VAA) announces the acceptance of four new members for 2007-2008 season.

The museum’s mission is the continued display of the artistic accomplishments of the famous artists, sculptors, writers, architects and landscape designers who lived and worked in this area of New Hampshire and Vermont, twin communities which sit astride the Connecticut River. The educational displays concentrate primarily on the 50-year period from 1885 to 1935, and are devoted to preserving the memories of that turn-of-the-century era.

Mountain Mama: Why Run?

first_imgIf you’ve asked me about the Charleston Marathon next week and my face clouds with guilt or you haven’t seen me out on the trail, it’s because I got sick and won’t be running the full marathon. First it was the flu over Thanksgiving that felt like mono, leaving my weakened immune system ripe for a bout of bronchitis followed by a virus. Life’s been a haze of medicines, an effort to hydrate, and lots of sleep. I’ve focused my energy on the basics – taking care of my three-year-old son and preserving my ability to support us, i.e. work. In short, it’s been a bleak existence.The holidays meant ten days with my parents, who encouraged sleeping and book reading by the fire, while they wore my son out on the farm cleaning out stalls and bailing hay. Once I felt better, I ventured out for a run. The cold air pierced my lungs. The wind whipped through my layers of lycra. My legs felt heavy. I wanted to turn around and settle by the fire with a hot toddy. I wanted to feel cozy and comfortable. Why run anyway? I’ll never regain enough fitness between now and the marathon – why not simply enjoy the day.Instead of turning around, I focused on how solid the ground felt under my feet, how the earth held me up and reminded me of my own strength. My thoughts turned to dirt and I thought about my relationship to it. I thought that one day I’ll be buried in that ground or my ashes sprinkled over it, that I’ll blend with the earth, but today I’ll let the earth hold me up and propel me forward.The running didn’t feel any easier. My lungs burned, my muscles quivered, and my mind labored over how hard running was. Again I thought about quitting. If running wasn’t fun, why was I bothering to do it anyway? There’s a lot of things I do that aren’t fun, but I keep doing them over again – instilling manners into my son and forcing him to brush his teeth, staying home to rewrite the book I started two years ago when friends invite me to go out, and grinding away in an office during the majority of my weekday-waking hours.If someone asked, I would tell them running is fun, but that’s not really honest. The running itself is mostly miserable, for me, at least most of the time. There are miles of light, there are transcendental glimpses of flying, but for the most part it’s me versus my brain, forcing myself forward. It’s high-fiving my running partners after the run that’s fun, it’s the buzz of endorphins, it’s the way my body feels worked out and sore and ready to rest, it’s all the thoughts and emotions that moved through me during the run and the ones I left behind on the trail.The late afternoon sun cast a shadow bigger than me. I ran side-by-side, sharing space with my own darkness. My shadow matched me stride-for-stride. There would be no outrunning it, no pulling ahead. I blinked back tears of frustration, that even after all that training, my fitness level had plummeted after being sick for so long. I had no energy left to stifle anything and so I cried. I ran and cried, cried and ran, because sometimes it seems that no matter how hard I try, the reality of life creeps up, the call from day care right before I was about to sneak in a lunchtime run, my own mortal body with what seems to be a fragile immune system these days, the pull of so many errands that need to get done right now.I plodded along, knowing the only way to get back into a running groove was by running. I ignored the nagging voice asking me to turn around, to give up, and to get comfortable. I told myself that the only way through was forward, and that turning around was going backwards, a direction I refused to go.Somewhere between mile ten and eleven I accepted that I could do my best, but my best was no guarantee against failure. Between miles eleven and twelve my feet felt like twenty pound weights were attached and I stumbled over my shoes. I conceded that I was in no shape to be contemplating a marathon so soon after being sick. I’d have to readjust my goals, set my sights on the half instead. Settling for the half seems like such a defeat. Six months before and I was sure I could get through the full, one way or another, but I couldn’t risk another bout of getting sick, not with my heavy workload and solo parenting.As my parents’ house came into sight, I felt a flood of relief. It hadn’t been a glorious run, but I had put in the miles, laid down so many emotions of frustration and failure along the way, and even glimpsed my own mortality. I’d run next to my own shadow, but realized that spending time in darkness didn’t mean I’d dwell there forever.With all that angst behind me, gratitude overcame me. I might not be running the full marathon, but I was still running the half. A wave of endorphins swelled within me. I had the things that really matter – love, health, joy. I might never get to my destination of 26.2 miles, but the journey has been oh so sweet.The training schedule, the twisted trails, the pre-dawn runs by headlamp, the lunchtime drills of skipping and running backward along sidewalks, and meeting new running partners have been planks in the bridge of willpower and strength, a solid platform over waters of despair. The journey has allowed me to touch the divine within myself, the sacred will to take one more step.last_img read more

Panama: More than 1,300 kilos of cocaine seized in Caribbean

first_img PANAMA CITY – Panamanian authorities seized 1,362 kilos (3,003 pounds) of cocaine stacked in an abandoned speedboat in Cocoyé, a beach in the Caribbean, the National Aeronaval Service said on Aug. 20. The alleged narco-traffickers abandoned the speedboat when they saw the police approaching, according to National Aeronaval Service Deputy Commissioner Jorge Yanis. “There were no detainees because the suspects left during the night hours, jumping to the beach and leaving [the narcotics] behind,” Yanis said. Authorities found 57 packages of cocaine in the boat and two other speedboats nearby. Yanis said the narcotics were probably bound for the United States. The seizure occurred after Colombian authorities alerted Panama to a suspicious speedboat departing from the Urabá gulf, in the Colombian Caribbean, which borders Panama. So far this year, Panamanian law agents have seized 22 tons of narcotics. [AFP (Panama), 20/08/2012; Prensa.com (Panama), 20/08/2012] By Dialogo August 21, 2012last_img read more

NAFCU to CUs: Share input on unauthorized mobile app transactions

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Following several questions from members on how to handle unauthorized use claims when a mobile payment app was used to facilitate a transaction, NAFCU’s Compliance and Regulatory Affairs Teams are seeking feedback from credit unions on how they would like Regulation E error resolution responsibilities clarified.Credit unions who have experienced this issue are encouraged to contact NAFCU Senior Regulatory Compliance Counsel Jennifer Aguilar or Senior Counsel for Research and Policy Andrew Morris to share challenges faced and potential solutions. NAFCU is engaged with the CFPB on this issue to discuss how the bureau’s innovation policies could provide solutions.In a new post on the Compliance Blog, Aguilar notes the association has received questions related to:whether the credit union is liable for unauthorized transactions involving a payment app;whether the credit union may require the member to file a claim with the app provider first; andwhether the app provider is responsible for resolving the claim.Aguilar offers insights into Regulation E, which states “the ‘financial institution’ is responsible for resolving claims for unauthorized use, including being liable for the amounts if the investigation reveals the transaction was unauthorized.” However, she flags “the implementation of the prepaid rule has further complicated these already complex investigations.” continue reading »last_img read more

Attempts to excuse kneeling are offensive

first_imgMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation On Oct. 6, Briggs McAndrews wrote to support the disrespectful act of kneeling during the national anthem and did so by first stating that our president made the act of kneeling a evil gesture. Not true.President Trump rightfully called out those who disrespect our nation by kneeling during the national anthem. It’s his duty.Mr. Briggs knows full well that Colin Kaepernick stated : “I am not going to stand up and show pride in a flag that oppresses black people.” Briggs twists his support of kneeling during the national anthem into a liberal gobbly-gook statement: “It’s the true role of a school district to impel young people into value forming experiences that ultimately ask them to be compassionate towards their fellow citizens.” What? Like in patty-cake football? As in compassion for those tens of thousands who gave their lives for our nation?If school administrators, coaches, teachers and parents fail to instill a pride and respect for our nation. What then? They, now by default, instill a disrespect for everyone — teachers, parents, grandparents, police, clergy etc. For example, the disrespectful dolt who placed a crucifix in a bottle of urine and called it art. Not OK. McAndrews stated: “The real value of that experience lies in the example to others of human motive and conduct.” You want a real value experience? Then you and Colin go to Arlington National Cemetery and “take a knee.” Pray for those who gave their lives so that misguided folks are allowed to spew their anti-American hogwash.Your “holier-than-thou” letter is just that — hogwash. And your attempt to excuse bad behavior is shameful at best and is extremely hurtful to old veterans like myself. That also applies to those who will write in your support.Recent credible evidence has surfaced claiming that Kaepernick was paid to do this by the center for community change, a progressive community organization funded in part by George Soros. Does anyone have to look any further than the NFL to see the damage that this nonsense does?God bless America.John OsterlitzGlenvillecenter_img Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Miami Infectious Diseases Specialist Says Coronavirus “Likely Won’t Kill You”

first_imgThe Wuhan coronavirus has now killed more than 900 people and there are more than 40-thousand confirmed cases around the world, with the vast majority in China. Jen and Bill just talked with infectious diseases specialist Dr. Aileen Marty from FIU Monday and asked her if the coronavirus is going to kill us.Her answer, “No you have a 98% chance of not dying from the coronavirus.”Dr Aileen Marty won’t dieAileen M. Marty, M.D., F.A.C.P., is a professor of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine at the FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine.Bill also asked Dr. Marty if there’s a chance that this virus was manufactured in a lab which she doubted calling “Mother Nature the biggest terrorist.”Dr. Mary added that the virus originated in bats then spread to another animal. She said it’s important to figure out what that intermediate animal is.Finally Dr. Marty says the virus is spread from person to person within a 3-6 foot radius of a sneeze or cough, but the virus lives on surfaces for several hours so she suggests that you wash your hands frequently and use hand sanitizer to prevent contracting the disease.Listen to the full interview with Dr. Aileen Marty here.https://www.850wftl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Dr-Elieen-Mardy-Coronavirus-2-10-20.mp3last_img read more

China bans online gaming, communication with foreigners after CCP gets flak for handling of…

Powered by Firework The novel Coronavirus pandemic, which originated in the city of Wuhan in China, slowly found its way into all corners of the world. While being able to curb the spread in their own country, the Communist Party of China received major criticism from all around for letting the virus outbreak turn into a pandemic. Now, the government has come up with a new regulation regarding online gaming in the country, which will see an effective ban of Chinese national players from interacting with foreign gamers in multiplayer games. Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/ETThe news was confirmed by a Taiwanese media outlet Taiwan News, which stated that the ban will not allow players to send gaming invites or messages to any player outside China, let alone participate in any online match together.“The communist regime is said to have noticed an authority vacuum in online multiplayer games, which enables people to socialize without monitoring freely. Local metropolises are scrambling to draft laws to expand the scope of online censorship in video games and even prohibit gamers from meeting and chatting with people on the other side of the Great Firewall,” the news portal stated.Advertisement “As the CCP’s audacious global propaganda campaign to silence critics abroad and to defend its infallibility fails to work out, the new law is expected to block Chinese people from learning how the world is reacting to Beijing’s handling of the outbreak and subsequent cover-ups,” the report added.On Aptil 10th, CCP also banned the recently released social simulation video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which turned out to be a super hit in the Nintendo Switch console.Advertisement The ban on Animal Crossing came in effect after many players showed their detest through the game, including pro-Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong, who decorated his in-game island with anti-China messages, such as “Free Hong Kong, revolution now.”Along with a total ban on multiplayer onlne games, the CCP also announced to have surveillance on every single player online gaming activity, and also imposed an online gaming curfew from 10pm to 8am for gamers under the age of 18, and also restricted the maximum amount of money they can spend on gaming.Also read-‘Leaks’ of government measures reveal when football in front of fans is likely to resume in ItalymaNcHeSter United turns blue for once as Old Trafford lits city with a heartwarming tribute.
