At the side and the back of the plot there is a footpath that is used sporadically by hikers. On the plot there is sun all day long. The house is built with split levels, which creates intriguing relationships between the various spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier Vens VanbelleThe living space was provided on the first floor, on a volume made of concrete blocks.

The space is glazed on three sides, so the sun comes in all day long and gives you the feeling that you are in close contact with the environment. To provide the necessary intimacy to this space, both floor, wall and ceilings were covered with parquet. Four cabinets were placed in the middle of this space. These are functional but also provide privacy in the seating area. The slim columns that carry the closed yellow volume also form a subtle buffer to the environment. It is a space that perfectly balances between open and closed.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier Vens VanbelleThree bedrooms and a bathroom were integrated in the yellow volume. From the open hallway you can enter the roof terrace. Through the window next to the terrace additional sunlight enters to the depths of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Atelier Vens VanbelleThe building volume is highly readily materialized, so that the layer-ness of the building is also readable from the outside.

A spiral concrete staircase with tiers of parota, a detail that breaks with the white design of the walls and turns it into a monumental totem that rises in the center of the residence.Save this picture!© Marcos GarcíaAnd in the case of light, it is imperative to know that Sundaram House has a conscious natural lighting design , light that flows organically in all corners and that inspires a living and transcendent project.

Taliban turn their sights on news media

The media that criticized the schoolgirl blogger’s shooting are being targeted in particular.Reporters Without Borders hails the speed with which the Pakistani police have reacted and their efforts to guarantee the safety of journalists targeted by the Taliban. At the same time, it condemns the death threats being made against journalists, which have the sole aim of creating a climate of terror in order to silence dissent.”Even if Malala Yousafzai’s prognosis continues to be uncertain, the media’s coverage of the attempt to murder this young activist and the developments in her state of health is essential,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Freedom of information must be respected and the Taliban threats must not serve as a spearhead for the imposition of self-censorship.”The organization is also relieved to learn that Yousafzai has been transferred to a hospital in the British city of Birmingham and that she is responding well to treatment there.The Pakistan interior ministry has stepped up security around media offices and religious schools that spoke out about the attack on Yousafzai.At the same time, the authorities are conducting an investigation with the aim of identifying those responsible for the Yousafzai shooting, which has been claimed by the TTP.Pakistan is ranked 151st out of 179 countries in the 2011/2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Photo credits: ARIF ALI / AFP PakistanAsia – Pacific center_img Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire News October 18, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Taliban turn their sights on news media RSF_en April 21, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information to go furtherlast_img read more

The Week Ahead: Measuring Housing Debt

first_img Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 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 February 7, 2020 1,127 Views On Tuesday, February 11, the New York Fed will release its household debt report. According to a survey from LendingTree, over half of all Americans feel burdened by various debt types, including mortgage debt.According to the survey, 12.4% of Americans are concerned about mortgage debt.  The report states that even though mortgage debt is the largest source of debt, people feel less burdened by it, as that type of debt is considered a “good debt” as it contributes to consumers’ financial future.Fourteen-percent of all millennials surveyed are concerned over mortgage debt—the highest among the three generations polled. Thirteen-percent of Gen X’s surveyed were concerned about mortgage debt and just 10% of Baby Boomers were worried.Credit card debt was the leading source of worry among those polled at 36.7%. Baby Boomers had the most concern over this segment at 44%. Twenty-nine percent of millennials were concerned about credit card debt.A report by LearnBonds in January found that mortgage debt hit a new record of $15.8 trillion in Q3 2019. This is the highest amount since the 2008 economic crisis when it stood at $14.7 trillion.The home mortgage sector rates showed a steady decline in recent years to hit a low of $13.3 trillion in the third quarter of 2013, and from the 2013 Q3, the debt has increased in a steady trajectory to hit the latest figures recorded in 2019. From the data, there was $401 billion in newly originated mortgage debt in 2018 Q4.“Generally, the mortgage is among the largest component of household debt across the United States,” LearnBonds notes. “However, the mortgage rates have been low since the last quarter of 2018. The Federal Reserve Bank resorted to lowering the rates in the wake of trade uncertainty which affected the global economic growth.”Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:Jerome Powell Semiannual Monetary Policy Report to the Congress (February 11)Federal Budget (February 12) debt HOUSING 2020-02-07 Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

The bench comprising of the Chief Justice S. Manikumar and  Justice Shaji P. Chaly said that the state is duty bound to ensure that the employers are providing appropriate shelter to the migrant workers, a clean environment and a healthy living condition with sufficient ventilation, light etc. along with other basic amenities. It added that the State Government should also see that employers are satisfying the requirements in accordance with the prevailing laws with respect to the wages, contribution to welfare funds etc. of the migrant labourers. Adequate measures shall be taken for curbing ill-treatment of the labourers in any manner, by the employers, the bench said. The bench was considering a Public Interest Litigation suo motu registered by it in 2017 on the basis of observations made in a judgment of a single Judge portraying the pathetic conditions of migrant labourers in the Labour Camps situated within the State of Kerala. Along with this, the Court also considered a PIL filed by Jana Samparka Samithy highlighting the plight of migrant labourers who are being exploited by various builders and other employers in the State.The court observed thus: “If any information is received by the State Government and its officials in respect of any ill-treatment of the migrant labourers from any responsible corners, quick action shall be taken for ensuring their well being and life and liberty. It is also made clear that if any of the migrant labourers expressed his intention to go back to his native State, adequate steps shall be taken by the State Government through its Offices to ensure return of such migrant workers subject to the lockdown restrictions and consequential SOPs issued by the respective Governments. So also, the Government shall always be watchful to ensure that no forcible detention are made by the employers of any migrant workers so as to cause any prejudice to the migrants, and if any such action on the part of the employers are noted by the Government, adequate steps shall be taken to initiate appropriate action against such persons.” The bench also observed that is also open to the State to have any appropriate legislation or framing of rules under any attendant laws in regard to the stay and management of the migrants within the State. The Court said that the State and the Authorities can take steps to gather the full details, identity and other information of the migrants even now remaining within the State and those who are returning to the State post pandemic period and consequent on any relaxation of the lockdown restrictions. While disposing the PILs, the bench observed: We are emphasising the said aspects in the light of several shocking and gruesome crimes committed by the migrants in the past and the said incidents should be taken as an eye opener for ensuring the details of the migrant workers as is specified above. So also in order to tackle such precarious situations the Government is at liberty to issue such circulars or notifications and publish the same through social media and other medias directing such migrants coming to the State to secure a clearance certificate from the jurisdictional Police Station of their residence. We are constrained to say these things because all citizens are entitled to freedom of life and liberty protected under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. That said all citizens are entitled to lead as of right, a healthy, happy, peaceful and meaningful life. Therefore, any such restrictions insisted upon by the Government can only be said to be reasonable in nature for the advantage of all and betterment of the life of the society as such. The State Government is also obligated and duty bound to take note of the impositions contained under Articles 38, 39, 42 and 43 of the Constitution of India while dealing with the situations in question requisited for the fundamental and fair Governance of the State. Case name: JANA SAMPARKA SAMITHY vs. STATE OF KERALACase no.: WP(C).No.27148 OF 2015Coram: Chief Justice S.

Will, age six, who is a cancer survivor. Will was the youngest survivor at the 2012 Pike County Relay for Life event and returned four years later for the event again.The American Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life fundraising and awareness campaign shouldn’t be about children. Too often it is. But it’s also about hope and about victories won.Six-year-old Will Tillery probably doesn’t realize the magnitude of the victory he has won over cancer. But his victory stands as a beacon of hope for others who are battling the disease and offers assurance that there will be a final victory over cancer.Will was the youngest survivor several years ago at the 2012 Pike County Relay for Life event. At age two, he was diagnosed with a Stage 4 germ cell tumor. Book Nook to reopen Russell and Allison Tillery had, only two weeks earlier, welcomed home their second son.“We didn’t know what were facing,” Russell Tillery said. “Will had a tumor behind his liver and in front of his spine. It had wrapped around his spinal cord.”That was four years ago, Friday night at the 2016 Pike County Relay for Life event, Will Tillery was running and playing in the infield. He is cancer free.center_img Published 10:57 pm Friday, May 6, 2016 “That’s why we Relay,” his parents said.Will took chemotherapy treatments every two weeks for six months.“He took three times the amount of chemo that an adult could take,” his dad said. “Children can tolerate that. The cancer shrunk and pulled away from the spinal cord, fell way from the spinal cord and was absorbed by Will’s body. The cancer will not come back. It’s gone.”That’s is just one reason why Pike County continues to Relay. That’s also why people continue to give. Organizers said the 2016 Relay for Life effort raised $124,199.40.

That’s why Eulane Jones Relays.Jones lost her husband, Hank Jones, to cancer Nov. 20, 2015. He had fought the battle valiantly, of and on, for 15 years. But Hank Jones was in the fight long before he was diagnosed with cancer.“Hank was among the first supporters of the Relay for Life campaign,” Jones said. “He always believed that the battle against cancer could be won and he was always out here doing what he could. Hank looked forward to Relay for Life each year and he would be so pleased to see all of the support out here tonight.”Being at Relay was emotional for Eulane Jones. The Luminary Service would be especially so.“But, someone said that Hank and Betty Wagoner are up there looking down on what we are doing and they are happy and pleased,” she said.
