The project of this house, located in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, was commissioned by an elderly couple (87 and 79 years old), who were not happy living in an apartment.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiThe couple is formed by a plastic artist and a distinguished aircraft designer. As they have lived in a house designed by Oscar Niemeyer, set in the Aeronautics Institute of Technology (ITA), they craved to live in a modern house again, with integrated spaces, well illuminated by great glazed modules and well ventilated.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!Plan – Ground FloorSave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiThe house is set in a corner lot of 625m² and a slope of 5 meters. The best sight of the area is facing the lower part of the plot, the south face, where there is the garden area of the condominium. In order to get an optimal sun exposure in all rooms, a central courtyard was defined as the parti of the project and it organizes the whole program of the house.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiThe access of the house is in the upper part of the land, through the central courtyard and highlighted by a concrete slab, with a ceiling height of 2,30m, which covers the garage, the house entry and the kitchen. The difference of the ceiling height between this slab and the panel slab, that covers the other rooms of the house, creates a high horizontal opening, which provides great lighting and ventilation to the room. This is how the bathrooms are illuminated and ventilated as well.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiDue to the age of the residents, a ground floor house was a priority, besides being designed to people with reduced mobility. Therefore, the entire basic program of the house is on the same floor: living room, dining room, laundry, bathroom and three bedrooms (including the master one). Under the living room, making the most of the natural slope of the plot, there is the plastic artist studio, only room that there is not on the ground floor level.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!Section AASave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiIn the project design, it was sought an economy of elements. After the structure was built, the house was nearly complete. For the structural design, it was also used simple solutions, avoiding unnecessary efforts: exposed concrete pillars support the volume of the rooms, resulting in a light main façade; for the rest of the house, it was chosen a conventional structure of pillars, beams and masonry walls.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiThe exposed concrete is also used in the composition of the interior of the house: the pillars, the slab, the panel slab and the concrete furniture. In order to complete the design, it was selected a custom-made carpentry, aluminum gray frames and red hydraulic floor tiles that are used in all rooms of the house.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiFor the volume of the house concept, it was chosen a simple shape, universal, that provides a great formal intensity that is highlighted, by contrast, amidst an architecture of several roofs and volumes, which is the feature of the other houses of the condominium. The great glazed panels provide the desired transparency and a big lawn garden, without walls, completely open to the street, emphasizes the generosity of the residents.Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiSave this picture!Side ElevationSave this picture!© Pedro VannucchiProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture Has Limits to Achieve Urban Equity.

Together with all of their citizens, they will develop solutions that will help generate more energy than they consume, and exchange experiences with cities across Europe to learn faster, together.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up By winning the grant, Limerick will become the first Irish ‘Lighthouse Smart City’ – Lighthouse cities are ones that develop and tests integrated innovative solutions at district scale and act as exemplars for their region and other cities and regions across Europe.Limerick is the only Irish city to ever receive this prestigious award and €6.5m of the overall funding will go directly to Limerick and its partners.“A smart city is a place where its infrastructure and services are made more efficient with the use of Digital and ICT technologies for the benefit of its inhabitants and business. The +CityxChange is another major step forward as part of our Digital Strategy for Limerick to become a Smart City Region that is ready for the new energy market and increased use of clean energy for sustainable development of our communities. We aim to demonstrate at European level the potential of our innovation ecosystem existent in Limerick and Ireland,” said Dr. Mihai Bilauca, Head of Digital Strategy, Limerick City and County Council. “Winning this grant proposal was only possible due to the spirit of partnership and collaboration so evident in Limerick. It is our key strength!”The focus in Limerick will be on the development of a new “community grid” and the use of smart meters, innovation in new energy sources (including hydrokinetic energy) and storage, digital tools and citizen participation to create what is called a ‘Positive Energy District’ in Limerick city centre, starting with the Gardens International building and ENGINE training and workspace provided by Innovate Limerick. A Positive Energy District is one that contributes more energy than it consumes.Limerick’s demonstration project will be centred in the Georgian Innovation district in the city centre (Georgian/Newtown Pery areas). The project will be led by Limerick City and County Council and Trondheim Kommune (Norway) and hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The Irish partners include the Limerick Clare Energy Agency, Innovate Limerick, University of Limerick, IES R&D, Smart MPower, ESB Innovation and ESB Networks, Space Engagers, GKinetic Energy Ltd, Future Analytics Consulting.In its evaluation, the European Commission commended the Limerick +CityxChange proposal for demonstrating and substantiating actions that will contribute to the wide scale roll out of Positive Energy Districts across Europe. The Commission commended the Limerick led project’s convincing approach to make local governments an active and integral part of the energy solution and engage citizens in the city’s transformation.The project includes the development of a framework and supporting tools to enable a common energy market. This market will be supported by a ‘connected community’ using digital technologies for collaboration, to reduce energy costs and resource consumption and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens.Rosie Webb, Lighthouse City Leader, Limerick City and County Council said: “This is an outstanding opportunity for Limerick to lead at an international level on the creation of positive energy areas. The Georgian Innovation District will enable us to co-create the future we want to live in. This can only happen with the active participation of citizens and by working closely with the University, industry partners and local businesses. In Limerick we will specifically look at adapting our historic city centre to enable citizens to play a key role in this new sharing and exchange model of energy consumption. We will then be in a position to exchange our experience with cities across Europe.”Mayor of Limerick City and County, Cllr James Collins said;”I wish to congratulate the +CityxChange team who have put over 1000 hours of effort working with over 32 partners to reach this stage.  This process was started with a very welcome grant of €33,000 from Enterprise Ireland to cover costs, we have now reached our destination with a reward of €6.5m for Limerick and €2m of that going directly to Limerick City and County Council for this project where Limerick will lead internationally to help co-create the future we want to live in and actively engage with all our communities to do so. Thinking big, and thinking ahead have helped us turn the Limerick economy into a success story. It’s innovative initiatives like this +CityxChange project which will drive us on to the next level, a beautiful historic riverside city that’s harnessing our natural environment and digital technology to deliver the Limerick of the future, a Limerick that works for everyone. ”Contract negotiations will now begin between Limerick and its partners and the project is set to begin in 2019. The final two years involve monitoring and evaluation.ENDScenter_img Linkedin WhatsApp EU agreement a positive outcome for farmers and rural Ireland Advertisement Twitter TAGSEUinnovationinvestmentLimerick City Thefts of catalytic converters on the rise #crimeprevention Emaillast_img read more

Bracing for Household Debt Spikes

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago By Q4 2019, the US household debt per capita hit the all-time high of $42,935.13 after a steady increase from Q3 2013, according to LearnBonds.  Mortgage debt, specifically, hit $9.56 trillion, a record high.Additionally, just 0.89% of all loans were non-performing in Q4, but according to the AEI Housing Center, with many homeonwers entering forbearance, the housing industry may need to brace for a delinquency spike.AEI said delinquencies could soar in a steep recession, even with forbearance. The report also said there could be a drop in loan originations in both the present and long term.The drop may be attributed to the reduced demand, the difficulty to close on home sales and mortgage transactions, extended timelines, and reduced capacity brought on by growing forbearance calls.Additionally, potential borrowers may have lower credit scores, debt-to-income ratios, and down payments. AEI also said many originators and servicers “will fail or close up shop.”The report also projects the Non-Qm market to recover slowly, as many Non-QM originators have already stopped taking in new applications.AEI noted that 93% of single-family mortgages are held by federal agencies, 64% are guaranteed by the GSEs and Ginnie Mae and covered by the CARES Act, and 29% consists of loans held by banks and credit unions. The remaining 8% of single-family loans are held by a variety of servicers and are not covered by the CARES Act.Ginnie Mae announced the issuance of its mortgage-backed securities (MBS) totaled $55.21 billion in March and provides financing for more than 211,000 homeowners and renters.The total outstanding principal balance for Ginnie Mae loans was $2.14 trillion—an increase from March 2019’s $2.05 trillion.AEI’s report revealed 4.31% of Ginnie Mae loans were in forbearance, compared to 1.69% of loans serviced by the GSEs.The analysis states that as of April 7, these shares have continued to increase and that it is “reasonable to project” that by the end of April, nearly 10-15% of Ginnie Mae loans and 4-8% of GSE loans will be in forbearance.

Harris urged to order review of gynaelogical cancer cases at LUH

first_img Harris urged to order review of gynaelogical cancer cases at LUH WhatsApp DL Debate – 24/05/21 Health Minister Simon Harris is once again being urged to order an immediate review into the diagnosis and treatment of gynaecological cancers at Letterkenny University Hospital.The call has come from Bristol based hospital consultant Dr. Margaret Mac Mahon, a Letterkenny native whose sister Carol died of Cancer of the Womb, a treatable condition which Ms Mac Mahon claims was missed when her sister complained of pains in 2010, and was only diagnosed in 2012.She died in 2015.In a letter to Minister Harris this week, Dr. Mac Mahon reminds him that he assured her in writing that her sister’s death would never happen again. However, she points to a recent Sunday Times article regarding a very similar case in Donegal, in which a woman’s cancer was allegedly missed at the hospital.She also tells him of a woman whon is known to be high risk spending £2,000 at a private gynaecology clinic in Derry where uterine cancer was diagnosed this August. She now awaits surgery in Ireland as she cannot afford the urgent surgery they wanted her to have in Derry.In her letter to Minister Harris, Dr. Mac Mahon suggests that pending the outcomer of a review, if necessary, Donegal women with suspect gynaecology cancer should be directed elsewhere, including to Derry. Women in other parts of Ireland, she concludes, would not be expected to endure this.

Police rescue baby from bank robbery suspect who allegedly used child as a shield

first_imgSOPA Images / Contributor / Getty Images(MURPHY, Texas) — Police in northern Texas rescued a baby from a suspected bank robber who allegedly tried to use the child as a shield when officers attempted to arrest her, authorities said.Evelyn Misumi, 36, walked in a Bank of America branch in Murphy, Texas, Wednesday afternoon with gasoline and lighter fluid, dumped it on the floor and demanded cash, according to a police statement.She tried to flee the scene after realizing employees had alerted authorities, who were already outside waiting, the Murphy Police Department said in the statement.Murphy is about 25 miles north of Dallas.“Police elected not to draw weapons as no immediate danger to themselves or surrounding individuals was apparent,” according to the statement. “They did, however, attempt to impede her escape by tasing her. When that proved unsuccessful, officers used pepper spray on the woman.”Misumi eventually made it to a car and “pulled a small child out of the vehicle and attempted to use the child as a shield,” police said, adding that they are working to verify her relationship to the child.That’s when at least three officers rushed over to rescue the child, as shown in witness video.One video posted on social media captured police as they wrestled to pry the baby from the suspect’s arms. Police eventually recovered the baby and took the suspect into custody, according to the statement.No injuries were reported.“Out of an abundance of caution, the child was taken to Children’s Medical Center to ensure that the child did not suffer any consequences from the pepper spray that had been used on the woman,” the police department said. “Identification of the suspect and her relation to the child are currently being verified.”Misumi was still in custody at the Collin County jail in McKinney, Texas as of early Thursday, according to court records. She faces charges of robbery and child endangerment. It was unclear whether she had obtained an attorney.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgJanuary 12, 2019 /Sports News – Local Utah dominates Washington State for 88-70 victory Utah took a 11-5 lead on back-to-back layups from Gach after Washington State went nearly six minutes without scoring a basket. Wade ended the drought with a jumper and added a layup to punctuate a 6-0 run that tied it at 11. Charles Jones, Jr. and Riley Battin each added 11 points while Sedrick Barefield and Parker Van Dyke chipped in 10 apiece for the Utes. Barefield also dished out seven assists. UP NEXT Utah hosts Colorado on Jan. 20. Utah came out on fire after halftime to completely pull away from the Cougars. The Utes scored baskets on seven straight possessions, culminating in a dunk from Jayce Johnson, to take a 62-32 lead with 13:19 remaining. All seven baskets were layups or dunks. Washington State hosts California on Thursday. Washington State opened a door for the decisive run by missing eight straight shots and committing three turnovers over a 4½ minute stretch. THE BIG PICTURE Washington State’s leading scorer Robert Franks missed his fourth consecutive game while recovering from a hip contusion. The senior forward did not travel with the Cougars to Boulder or Salt Lake City this week. Franks is averaging 22.1 points and 7.9 rebounds per game for this season. C.J. Elleby scored 21 points and Isaiah Wade added 12 to lead Washington State. The Cougars (7-9, 0-3) have lost all eight games they have played outside Pullman this season.center_img Without Franks in the lineup, the Cougars looked lost on offense and fell victim to multiple prolonged shooting and scoring droughts. Van Dyke kept the Cougars from actually taking the lead. He drained a 3-pointer to put Utah back in front. Then the senior guard stole the ball and took it in for a dunk. Van Dyke’s two baskets sparked a 15-0 run that gave the Utes a 26-11 lead.
