Koby Cottage / Garrison Architects

first_img Area:  1100 ft²Text description provided by the architects. Garrison Architects approaches projects through a process of extensive research that responds to the current economic, cultural, technical and environmental challenges. The firm integrates this critical approach with a highly refined modernist aesthetic. The Koby Cottage exemplifies this process. The recipient of a New York AIA Architecture Merit Award, Koby Cottage is a guesthouse for families visiting their children at Starr Commonwealth, a nonprofit organization in Michigan that counsels troubled teens. The cottage allows families to come together in a private domestic setting surrounded by nature.

The space between the modules is enclosed with glass. The cottage plan has an X form. The dining table is situated at the structure’s crossing, creating a place for rejoining and discussion.

Use of glass corners throughout the building, especially in the dining room intersection, creates a blurring between the space inside the house and the space of nature in which it is suspended. An open rooftop deck creates a direct connection with the outdoors, establishing a direct connection with the outdoors, establishing a sense of openness.

Koby is a prototype structure of a system designed for the construction of multi-story modular buildings — its tubular steel space frame has the unique capacity to achieve heights of twelve stories using a patented connection system that minimizes field finishing and speeds the overall construction process.Save this picture!Courtesy of garrison architectsProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitecture City Guide: DenverArticlesUpdate: High Line 23 / Neil M.

This grant will support the addition of a new CAP staff member who will oversee programs at five PUSD schools next fall, including all four major high schools and Washington Middle School. The SPARC grant is in support of one-to-one college advisement and small group workshops provided by CAP to the students of John Muir High School. CAP’s relationship with Muir spans six years, and programs at this school have reached hundreds of students, including about 50% of the past four graduating classes.“These local grants are fundamental to our plan to grow CAP’s reach in Pasadena over the next few years,” states Mo Hyman, CAP’s Executive Director. “We have plans to increase the breadth and depth of our services to PUSD students and graduates, but this will simply not be possible without the investment of local foundations, businesses, and individuals.”This school year, CAP has provided individualized programs to nearly 500 students at four schools in the district. It is hope that with the generous support of these two institutions, CAP will expand its reach over the coming years to provide holistic, drop-in, individualized college readiness support to all Pasadena Unified high school and middle school students who wish to receive it. CAP’s programs assist students in completing college applications, provide SAT test prep, help students to navigate the complex college-selection process, assist students in identifying scholarships and other financial aid, guide students in writing effective personal statements, help students to build effective study and goal-setting skills and long-range plans, and more.About College Access PlanCollege Access Plan is a Pasadena nonprofit that prepares underserved students to succeed in college. CAP provides drop-in college advisement and topic-specific workshops at Blair Magnet, Pasadena, and John Muir high schools, as well as Washington Middle School, including support for over 200 PUSD seniors this past fall as they completed applications to four-year colleges and universities.

Pasadena Fire Department Releases Top 10 Emergencies It Responded to in 2016 — And Actual Fires Isn’t One of Them

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News Business News Community News The Pasadena Fire Department responded to more calls about medical emergencies than actual fires in 2016, according to a report submitted last week by Pasadena Fire Chief Bertral Washington to City Manager Steve Mermell.Of a total of 19,354 incidents that the Fire Department responded to last year, only 288 — or about 1.5% — were actual fires, according to Fire Dept. spokesperson Lisa Derderian.In contrast, 7,334 incidents, or 38 percent, were medical related, including elderly people who had fallen (1,413 incidents), people struck by shortness of breath (1,348 incidents), persons with chest pain (990), persons down (825), altered level of consciousness (737), miscellaneous medical (714), persons unconscious (654), and persons suffering a seizure (653).Traffic collisions also made Pasadena’s Top 10 list, summing out at 722 incidents, or four percent of the total.Pasadena’s experience is normal for most U.S. fire departments. According to a 2015 report by the National Fire Protection Association, only four percent of the average fire department’s emergency callouts are for fires. Medical aid calls, on the other hand, made up 64 percent of the average American fire department’s calls.Fire Chief Washington said the data collected from both local and national records helps the Fire Department analyze categories of risk and gives it direction in formulating more responsive public education programs.“By tracking and incorporating valuable information such as this into our programs, along with our continuous progress towards updating current public education policies and procedures, we aim to improve the effective and efficient use of our resources to serve our community at our highest capacity,” Washington said.City Manager Steve Mermell said the Fire Department is also moving towards focusing on preventing the situations which lead to so-called “preventable” medical emergencies.“By identifying high-risk categories, we can raise community awareness about these incident types and address needs that are specific to Pasadena,” Mermell said. “Sharing this information and educating our community members can better prepare them during incidents, and also help to reduce preventable emergency calls for services.” Subscribe Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Herbeauty6 Trends To Look Like A Bombshell And 6 To Forget AboutHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNow She’s 19 – Look At Her Transformation!

Forbearance Levels Improve, But Plan-Expirations Loom Large

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Forbearance Levels Improve, But Plan-Expirations Loom Large Forbearance levels are looking better across the board as volume decreases for all types of mortgage loans, according to the weekly report from Black Knight. Keeping with the strong trend of early-month improvements, overall volumes dropped by 61,000 or 2.7%.Forbearance volumes for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fell by 13,000, or -1.9%.Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and VA plan volumes improved by 19,000, or -2.1%.Private Label Securities (PLS) and portfolio loan forbearances decreased by 29,000 or 4.6%.Inflow is down too—”total plan starts are down 13% month-over-month, and continue to slowly decline,” report the analysts at Black Knight.So, the current state of COVID-related forbearance plans in America as of May 11 looks like this:2.16 million or 4.1% of homeowners remain in pandemic-prompted forbearance plans, including 2.5% of Fannie/Freddie loans, 7.3% of FHA/VA loans, and 4.6% of portfolio and PLS loans.Some 250,000 plans list May 2021 expiration dates, Black Knight says, which offers “a moderate opportunity for additional improvements over the next few weeks, and more acutely in June, which lists 860,000 removal-or-extension expirations. Of all loans reviewed for extension or removal over the past month, 38% have been removed from forbearance, which marks the highest removal rate since mid-February.June marks the final quarterly review before early forbearance entrants begin to reach their 18-month plan expirations later this year.President Joe Biden last February announced an extension of the moratorium on home foreclosures—previously set to expire March 31—through the end of June. That temporary moratorium blocks home foreclosures, allows delayed mortgage payments, and offers six months of additional mortgage forbearance for those who enroll by June 30.Last week, when discussing the rapidly improving rate of delinquencies and forbearances, Marina Walsh, the Mortgage Bankers Association VP of Industry Analysis credited an improving jobs situation. She also issued a warning to servicers as forbearance programs expire: “Upon exiting long-term forbearance, some borrowers, regardless of their improving employment prospects, may need more complex workout options, such as loan modifications, to remain in their homes.” Subscribe Share Save About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Sign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Loss Mitigation, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Borrowers Taking Advantage of More Lender Tech Next: Most Valuable Company: Claims Recovery Financial Services 2021-05-14 Christina Hughes Babb Home / Daily Dose / Forbearance Levels Improve, But Plan-Expirations Loom Large Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago 16 days ago 1,005 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more

The Single Judge Bench of Justice Midha, however, refused to grant any relief to the publishers against LibGen, stating that as the matter was of public importance and would affect the scientific community at large, no order could be passed restraining Libgen at this stage.Sr. Adv. Amit Sibal appearing for Elsevier pressed vehemently for an ad interim order, stating that, while a majority of the material produced by them is available on subscription basis, some material is also available publicly. However, the former, is the incentive for the publishers in the first place.He stated that due to the manner in which the paywalls were hacked into, even searching for these articles results in further infringement, and therefore, there was no other way than to block these websites.Several intervening applications were also filed by different parties seeking to be impleaded into the matter. Upon Justice Midha asking Sibal whether he would like these parties to be heard before any restraining order was passed in the matter, Sibal said that they would want to file a reply to the application.Justice Midha then asked, “Subject to filing of your reply, do you mind if we atleast hear them, as this is a matter of public importance, concerning the entire scientific community?”Refusing to retreat, Sibal submitted that qua LibGen, Elsevier would still like a relief.Expressing its disinclination to grant such relief, the court said, “This is a matter of public importance, we need to hear them atleast. The court had taken a view that the written statement should come, I am not going to go against that view.”The court then granted SciHub 2 weeks’ time to file its written statement. The matter has been fixed for further hearing on Feb 23.In a previous hearing, Sci-Hub had undertaken before the Delhi High Court to restrain from uploading, publishing, and making available any article till Jan 6.Both Sci-Hub and Libgen claim to host nearly 80-84 million research pieces face charges of infringing copyrights of work by the publishers. They provide free access to paywalled research material of various publishers.While Elsevier publishes journals like The Lancet and Cell among 2,500 others, Wiley publishes nearly 1,700 journals. The American Chemical Society is one of the world’s largest scientific societies and publishes the prestigious Journal of the American Chemical Society.While Sci-Hub had agreed to not put out anything new and citing the plethora of material running through 2169 pages, put forth by the petitioners, it had sought time to file a response.Sibal had argued previously that the defence had no case in the first place as the matter involved open infringing of copyright. He sought a direction to internet service providers, the department of telecom and the ministry of electronics and information technology for blocking Sci-Hub and Libgen, and said that he would give the links which have to be removed.Citing that the defendant websites have been around since 2011, the court enquired of the publishers what took them so long to wake up from their slumber to move court, to which they replied that litigation in other countries took long.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Caroline Wozniacki announces she’s retiring from tennis

first_img Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailScott Clarke / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — After nearly 15 years as a professional tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki is retiring from the sport. “I’m ready to move on to the next chapter in my life,” Wozniacki, 29, said Friday on ABC News’ Good Morning America. “Australian Open 2020 is going to be my last tournament.”Wozniacki, currently ranked number 37 in the world, won her lone Grand Slam title at the 2018 Australian Open, defeating top seed Simona Halep.After turning pro in 2005, Wozniacki went on to win 30 Women’s Tennis Association singles titles and was the runner-up at the 2009 US Open and the 2010 WTA Tour Championships.Wozniacki has also faced good friend Serena Williams numerous times, including at the 2014 US Open, where she lost to Williams in the final. She and Williams also attended each other’s weddings, with Williams serving as a bridesmaid in Wozniacki’s wedding earlier this year.Wozniacki married former NBA star Daniel Lee in June in Italy.In addition to being a newlywed, Wozniacki is also pursuing other interests off the tennis court, including studying at Harvard Business School.She said she also hopes to continue to be an advocate for people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Wozniacki revealed in 2018 that she had been diagnosed with RA, an autoimmune disease that causes swelling and pain in and around the joints, according to the Arthritis Foundation.

Heading back Home

first_img“So, do you have any exams?”Almost every day for the past few weeks I have been confronted with this question, and the response is always the same. “No,” I answer sheepishly, and then proceed to give a lengthy speech explaining that even though I’m American and only here on a one-year programme as a visiting student and have no exams, I really am working; this year really counts for something; I need to make sure I do well… Chances are that at some point you’ve run across someone like me. At times it seems that Oxford is practically infested with us. For American university students, spending part of their education abroad is becoming more and more common – as popular as gap years are in England. And, Oxford is certainly an attractive location: the rigour of the academic system, the opportunity to work in small tutorials (quite a different scenario from the crowded lecture halls of many American universities), the challenge of adapting to a surprisingly different culture, the chance to view our own country from a new and often critical perspective, and quite simply the opportunity to study at one of the world’s greatest universities manage to attracts us Yanks in droves. Now that my year abroad is drawing to a close, I realise that while all of the above reasons factored in my decision to come here, they were not my genuine motive. During the past few years, I have noticed that the pace of life has been accelerating at an alarming rate. Looking back on my first days of university orientation, I remember how incredibly long that blissful week felt. New faces, new opportunities – it felt like life was just beginning. It didn’t take long for me to sink into the routine – essays, projects, part-time jobs, summer vacations that slipped away before I could even fully appreciate them. As much as I detest clichés, I cannot help but asking, “Where has the time gone?” I came to Oxford looking for newness. By immersing myself in a completely different environment, I hoped to slow time down. And I often think that this feeling of restlessness, this anxious desire to halt time’s passing, plays a part in many foreign students’ decision to study here. Is this a form of escapism? I cannot deny it. However, like all attempts at escape, the relief is only temporary. Time moves quite strangely in Oxford. I think most of us can agree that Trinity is considerably shorter than Michaelmas. And yet, I feel that somehow, I’ve succeeded in slowing time down. America’s national obsession with success leads to a yearning for achievement that sometimes eclipses the thirst for knowledge; finishing with high grades is more important than actually enjoying your subject. While all the Oxford students whom I’ve met genuinely strive to work hard and do well, they seem to keep life in better perspective. They play hard and work hard. This year has given me the chance – for the first time in a long while – to learn my subject for its own sake. However, while I could tell you all about the influence of Calvinism on the poetry of John Donne or Wordsworth’s concept of empathy, these are not the most important things that Oxford has taught me. I’ve learned that the best time to walk though the streets of Oxford is Sunday night, when all of the bells are resounding at once. I’ve learned that after procrastinating for three hours and finally completing an essay at 1am, kebabs are the best food anyone could ask for. Despite my weakness for sentimentality, the simple fact is that soon my fellow exchange students and I will be leaving. Admittedly, in some ways this year has felt like an extended vacation, albeit a very work-intensive one. For finalists this is certainly not the case. However, to a certain extent all university students are indulging in escapism to a degree. No matter how hard we work, we are still fleeing from the reality that soon the situation is going to change. “Enjoy university,” a former teacher once advised me,“because once you get out, it’s all nine to five.” But I would rather not view life in that way. I want to believe that there will always be chances for adventure, always something new to learn. Saving money to travel, taking up a new hobby in one’s forties, going back for further education – all of these could be dubbed “escapism” to a degree. And yet, these are things that make life fulfilling. Call me a hedonist, but I’ve come to believe that life is something to be enjoyed. And, in moderation, a little escapism does no harm at all.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more
