In August 2008 a 1980s family home in rural county Kildare lay submerged under 1m of water during three separate, unprecedented flash floods. The family devestated by the loss of their home saw the opportunity in rebuilding, to remodel the house while making it safe from possible future floods.

The existing slab and raft foundations were to be reused as much as possible to reduce costs and environmental impact. The existing external walls were cut at cill level of the original house, filled, and used as retaining walls providing a new raised ground floor level 1.2 metres above the original. Building material salvaged from walls above cill level was re-used where appropriate as fill below the new ground floor slab. A lower ground floor level was formed by tanking a leg of the original ground floor. Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe project is a contemporary interpretation of an Irish Bungalow, answering issues of context, planning and site levels. Three blocks sit on the site connected through an interlocking knuckle hall linking the uses of living, kitchen/dining and sleeping. The ‘light chimneys’ direct light deep into these spaces leaving an ecclesiastic glow in the space and act as mini stacks for natural ventilation of the spaces. Save this picture!© Paul TierneyAdditional floor area and natural light were primary drivers for the scheme, as the previous house had been dominated by a long and eternally dark corridor surrounded by a series of box rooms. The project uses both direct and borrowed light from the light funnels. The two-storey Sleeping block is a tanked part-basement polished white concrete floor built on the existing slab, a void punched through the floor above brings light to the new hall below. The rooms are lit by tilting/pivoting/swinging large format hardwood windows and doors using a modular size of 2.25m x 1.5m throughout. Save this picture!ground floor planThe upper floor is supported on a cranked beam giving additional height to the first floor rooms without overly raising the ridge level and retaining the appearance of bungalow externally. The crank in the beam returns space to the lower level bedrooms enabling the larger format windows to pull in more light at this level. The entire first floor level is lit by the large light chimney, providing direct and borrowed light to the bedrooms and study by use of internal roof lights, screens and voids. Save this picture!© Paul TierneyThe living spaces in the front block can be combined by folding back two large triangular flush screens, 1.5m x 4.5m, leaving the central chimney in the round. The kitchen/dining block is an addition to the original footprint providing an 8m x 8m square floor with pulled-in slider and overhang forming a porch between the adjoining utility and back garden. Light falls from above via the off-centre light funnel.Save this picture!© Paul TierneyProject gallerySee allShow less”American City: St. Louis Architecture: Three Centuries of Classic Design” ExhibitionArticlesMuseum Nasional Indonesia / AbodayArticles Sharelast_img read more

Within the first phase, Burnett Works is developing a cold recruitment pack which will be tested over the coming months with the aim of establishing a new banker pack. The initial concept will be ‘Let me show you the difference between disability and livability.’ A second concept will be tested against this in early 2009.Livability Director of Fundraising and Marketing John Chamberlain commented, “With the new brand identity developed in the spring, it is now important to highlight the need for funds and how they will be used in our work with disabled people. Creating new propositions and finding new ways to recruit more donors is a key part of our strategy of the next two years as we seek to build the database.”– ends –Notes to editors:Livability believes everyone should have the freedom to live their lives and have the chance to use their abilities. The charity offers a wide range of innovative services to support and empower disabled people throughout their lives and also provides community organisations with the resources, advice and confidence to impact their neighbourhoods.

Bond demanded for Rev. Pinkney, political prisoner

first_imgMichigan political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney had his appeal placed on hold May 12 following oral arguments in his case on May 11. A three-judge panel of the Michigan Court of Appeals in Grand Rapids ordered the appeal “held in abeyance” until the Michigan Supreme Court decides People v. Hall, which could have bearing on the severity of the sentence imposed on Rev. Pinkney.Pinkney was the leader of an election recall campaign against the mayor of Benton Harbor, Mich. He was charged with felony forgery when five dates on the petitions were alleged to have been altered. No evidence was presented to the all-white jury except that Rev. Pinkney was a vocal and well known African-American activist. In December 2014, he was sentenced to 2.5 to 10 years in prison.Free Rev. Pinkney billboards have been put up along routes M-139 and I-94 in Benton Harbor, Mich.Appeal briefs were filed in the fall of 2015 by attorney Tim Holloway, along with amicus briefs from the American Civil Liberties Union and the National Lawyers Guild. On May 11 during the Court of Appeals hearing, Chief Judge Colleen O’Brien asked the attorneys many questions about the sentencing provisions of the law and the impact of the Hall case. The final decision in People v. Hall could be an important factor, separate from the issue of guilt or innocence, in challenging the excessive prison sentence handed down to Rev. Pinkney.On May 16, Holloway filed a new brief and motion with the court requesting bond and freedom for Rev. Pinkney based on the new status of his case being left undecided, possibly for many months. In anticipation of granting of bond, many supporters have called for donations to be collected.On May 28, supporters of Rev. Pinkney will demonstrate in his home town of Benton Harbor demanding his freedom. The protest coincides with the Professional Golf Association tour, played on a golf course built on land stolen from a public park given in perpetuity to the people of Benton Harbor. Over a decade ago Rev. Pinkney began protests against the seizure of land from the Jean Klock Park on the shores of Lake Michigan.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Congress Returns with Hopes of Farm Bill Passage

first_img Facebook Twitter Lawmakers return to Washington, D.C., this week with a need to still find a path forward on the farm bill. However, multiple measures, including 2019 appropriation bills, must also be passed in the lame-duck session. The House is scheduled to leave on Thursday, December 13th, while the Senate is scheduled to adjourn on Friday, December 14th. But, Congress could stay in session longer if the necessary end-of-the-year business is not completed by the target dates, according to the Hagstrom Report.Leaders of the House and Senate agriculture committees say they still hope to finish a farm bill this session, but they have not shown signs of reaching a final agreement. Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley has hinted that the farm bill might be added to the appropriations bill so that House leadership would not have to bring it up as a separate piece of legislation. Meanwhile, Representative Collin Peterson of Minnesota, who will chair the House Ag Committee next year, says that if the bill does not pass, he wants to organize his committee quickly in January and bring up the farm bill in short order.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleHarvest Inching Towards Finish LineNext articleEstate and Succession Planning Not Just About Taxes for Family Farms NAFB News Service By NAFB News Service – Nov 26, 2018 Congress Returns with Hopes of Farm Bill Passage SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Congress Returns with Hopes of Farm Bill Passagelast_img read more

Backed by Hearsay’s compliance and supervision capabilities, leading financial services firms can now confidently empower their teams to leverage video more effectively on social media. “During these unprecedented times, we recognize that financial firms must equip their advisors and agents with tools that allow them to truly personalize engagements to build deeper relationships with their clients and prospects,” said Alex Falls, Vice President of Product at Hearsay Systems. “We are thrilled to extend Facebook and LinkedIn video support on our platform. Now, our customers’ advisors and agents can organically publish meaningful and personal messages to connect with their clients in a way they may have previously reserved for an in-person meeting.” Compliant Videos Boost Last-Mile Engagements In 2020, 53% of Hearsay System’s global customers across all lines of business— property & casualty, life insurance, and wealth and asset management— published more than 247,000 videos on the platform. The videos were shared by agents and advisors in the U.S., Canada, France, and Spain to their customer base. With the broadened video support, agents and advisors can create an original video or video message for their Facebook or their professional LinkedIn page and upload it through the Hearsay platform. Once uploaded, the video is subject to Hearsay’s compliance and supervision workflows, which help ensure regulatory guidelines are met and risk is effectively mitigated. According to Falls, “The most effective videos shared across the Hearsay platform tend to promote community and humanitarian efforts. Our data shows that tying content to a good cause increases the likelihood of virality and makes for the most engaging posts.” As customers boost their use of digital communications and workflows to reach their clients and prospects amid the pandemic and beyond, compliant video publishing creates new opportunities to nurture these relationships. With expanded support for Facebook and LinkedIn video across the Hearsay Systems Platform, advisors or agents are now empowered to create and publish even more highly personalized content that resonates more powerfully with clients and prospects within their networks and communities. “Given how active our brand and agents are in our communities, video is the perfect medium to amplify our approach and connect more deeply with our client base,” says Steven Panzella, Digital Marketing Specialist at the Knights of Columbus. “Our organization has such a unique and rich history, and video allows our teams to share our story in a powerful way that resonates with our core constituency. It’s been a game-changer for our social program, and we’re excited to explore how we can continue leveraging this medium going forward.” To learn more about Hearsay Systems and video support, please visit www.hearsaysystems.com.
