The design of the Espirito Santo Residence is derived from the twin imperatives of topography and usage. It is situated on a corner plot with views of the town’s principal valley, with a drop of 10 meters from one side of the plot to the other. Save this picture!Planta da Casa+ 50The first question to be tackled was that of creating an artificial terrain that would allow for easy transit around the external areas and their use for day-to-day activities. The landscaping was determined by the creation of these areas. The second question was that of the residence’s dual usage. The building houses not only the residence but also the working studio of the artist owner. Save this picture!© Nelson KonThe strategy adopted was to divide the building into two autonomous blocks. In contact with the terrain is the studio block, partly embedded in the hill and illuminated only by an overhead opening. Its interior is divided by a series of walls which serve as supports for the works to be created there. Save this picture!© Nelson KonSuspended above the terrain is the block containing the residency itself, open to the views that surround it. Its internal layout is designed to facilitate integration and fluidity between separate sectors for living, sleeping, cooking and the service area. Save this picture!© Nelson KonBetween the two blocks, on the slab that forms the roof of the studio, a large veranda has been created, partly in shadow. Another space, uncovered, occupies the slab over the residential block, increasing the total external ground area. Save this picture!Corte DThe suspended block is supported on only four points, with prominent overhangs. The two solid slabs that support it are constructed from exposed prestressed concrete. A further layer of concrete conceals the steel reinforcing elements. This concrete and the window system form the façade of the building. The concrete slabs, once polished, form the floor of the interior environment, with no need for additional surfacing. Save this picture!© Nelson KonConical niches in the concrete allow for the direct installation of lighting, with no need for additional fixtures.

The archetypal being of the house is to become the stage for each act of the daily life of its inhabitants: from the ordinary to the extraordinary ones.

Irish charity regulator accused of failing in its duties 33 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Howard Lake | 9 June 2015 | News A former charity director has accused the Irish charity regulator of having no power after it refused to intervene in a dispute over fundraising activity and governance issues.According to the Irish Examiner, David Hall, a former director of the Saoirse Foundation, wrote to Úna Ní Dhubhghaill at the Charities Regulatory Authority in March expressing his concerns at what he claimed were attempts by the Foundation CEO Tony Heffernan to block the board’s efforts to appoint an external company to carry out a review of certain fundraising events and a governance review. Mr Heffernan has rejected these claims.However the regulator wrote back saying she considered the issue an internal matter and that she would not therefore launch an investigation.Mr Hall said he and three other directors who resigned from the charity felt abandoned by the regulator and would report their concerns to the Irish police.The regulator responded to a separate complaint about a major fundraising drive on behalf of the Foundation, saying the authority “is not currently resourced to undertake investigations” because the relevant legislation has not been commenced,” the Irish Examiner reported.One specific complaint to the regulator concerned fundraising for an ambulance which allegedly had not been purchased or ordered seven months after the fundraising event with differing figures provided for the amount raised.The Saoirse Foundation was set up by the Heffernan family to help those affected by Batten Disease.

The law applies to artists, producers, engineers, musicians, journalists, publicists, managers, music video creators, dancers and background vocalists.Local newspapers, including the Pasadena Weekly and the Pasadena Independent largely depend on freelancers.Local Assemblyman Chris Holden and state Senator Anthony Portantino voted for the bill.“The bill has had more of an effect on other organizations,” said Lora Unger, CEO of the symphony. “We are waiting to see what comes in the vote tomorrow, and we are hopeful that Sacramento will make the right decision that will be helpful to all.”AB 1928 would repeal AB 5. Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R-Granite Bay) and Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez (R-Murrieta) claim that AB 5 has caused harm to workers and companies in California and should be done away with.In a letter penned to the state Assembly Kiley said, “So far this year, legislators have introduced 33 bills amending, narrowing, or overhauling AB 5. Everyone at the Capitol recognizes the law is causing widespread hardship. Even the author is proposing major changes. But none of these bills has an urgency clause. That means relief will be delayed until at least next year.For Californians whose professional relationships are severed or businesses shuttered in the meantime, that’s too late.” he added.Last month, the Sierra Madre Playhouse was forced to cancel a youth production of Charlotte’s Web due to the law.Changes made to comply with the law added $38,000 to the production of the budget.“The new reality that we face as a non-profit arts organization is one that some 28 other Intimate Theaters in Los Angeles County face, as do other small performing arts companies,” said Artistic Director Christian Lebano, in a prepared statement after the play was canceled.AB 5, went into effect on January 1, and is based on the California Supreme Court decision that significantly tightens regulations on how businesses classify workers as either independent contractors or actual employees. It was signed into law by Governor Gavin Newsome in late 2019.The law which was seen by some as a way for workers to obtain full-time employment in what is now being termed a “gig economy.” an economy in which people are working one or more part-time jobs to make ends meet because they can’t find full-time employment.According to the states guidelines to be considered an independent contractor a worker must be free of the hirer’s control, do work that is “outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business” and be established in a trade similar to the work being performed.This means that businesses who utilize independent contractors must pay out the benefits packages that come with hiring them as full-time employees.Although seen by some state lawmakers and contractors as a route to financial security it presents problems for smaller enterprises who simply cannot afford the pay and benefits package.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home sellers are likely spending almost $21,000 in additional costs to sell their homes, according to an analysis by Zillow and Thumbtack. These costs include prep activities like painting and staging the home for sale.The analysis revealed that these costs come as an unwelcome surprise for almost half the sellers who are doing this activity for the first time. It indicated that almost 79 percent of sellers completed at least one home improvement project before putting their property on the market.”Selling is often a complicated process that can sometimes require extensive prep work in order to put your best foot forward for a successful sale,” said Skylar Olsen, Director of Economic Research at Zillow. “It also comes with huge transaction costs that aren’t necessarily top of mind to someone who hasn’t sold a home in a while or never has had the pleasure. Selling was hard even in the sellers’ market of recent years, and it’s going to get harder as markets soften.”One of the key costs that home sellers need to budget for are closing costs. The analysis revealed that these expenses, which include agent commissions and transfers or sales tax, could add up to $14,281, on average, but because they are based on the home’s sale price, sellers in the nation’s priciest markets pay much more. For example, in San Jose sellers pay $76,015 on average in closing costs, the highest of metros analyzed. By comparison, sellers in Cleveland spend the least at $9,046.Additionally, sellers who hire professional help for common home prep projects tend to spend, approximately $6,570 on improvements like interior and exterior painting, staging, and carpet cleaning, as well as local moving costs to their new home, the analysis indicated.And while these costs may initially pinch the homeowners’ pockets, the analysis found that sellers who made these improvements were more likely to sell at a higher rate than the asking price compared with those who didn’t.”While the costs of these touch-up projects can add up, particularly in high cost of living metros, sellers should remember that by taking care of these projects, they can get a really strong return on their investment and may be more likely to sell their home for the highest possible price,” said Lucas Puente, Economist at Thumbtack.

Although the plaintiffs sought immediate deletion of video as well, the Court did not grant any relief in this regard.Senior advocate VR Dhond appeared for the plaintiffs and mentioned the matter for urgent hearing on Monday afternoon. He pressed for an urgent interim injunction against Lodh saying she intends to hold a press conference wherein she will reiterate the said defamatory allegations.However, Justice Menon refused to accept the request. “How can I restrain somebody from holding a press conference. How can you gag somebody like this,” Justice Menon asked.Advocate Pandey opposed the request for removal of the said video and submitted that the said defamatory statements are against her husband, and the plaintiff’s names have only been mentioned to demonstrate that they were aware of her husband’s activities. The defendant actor has also filed a domestic violence complaint against her husband and is willing to prove her allegations in the said video.According to the plaintiffs, they were ‘extremely shocked’ to discover a video posted by the defendant from her Instagram account making grossly defamatory, slanderous, distasteful and patently false allegations against the plaintiffs in what even at the “first brush appeared to be a malicious attempt on part of the defendant to gain cheap publicity and settle personal scores with her husband viz. one Sumit Sabharwal entirely at the expense of the Plaintiffs.”In the said video, the defendant has alleged that her husband Sumit Sabharwal is Mahesh Bhatt’s nephew and is a drug supplier who also engages in human trafficking. She goes on to state that Mahesh Bhatt is a ‘Don’ and a part of the underworld mafia who is not only aware of her husband’s actions but also “operates the system.”The plaintiffs have claimed that Sumit Sabharwal is not even directly related to them as he is the son of Mahesh Bhatt’s sister’s husband’s brother. They have submitted a chart to illustrate the same.Court has now directed Lodh to file an affidavit in reply to the suit and the interim application within four weeks. Thereafter, two weeks have been granted to the plaintiffs to file their rejoinder to the defendant’s affidavit. Next Story
