Architecture; is the practice of adding something to the world. It is the creation of spaces for people’s complex functions rather than the basic instinct of shelter.At the same time, architecture is a method of changing the way of thoughts. Its principle is questioning the reasons for thoughts, searching for answers for its self-gained noticeability… It searches for opportunities, seeks potentials and pushing the limits… Peninsula of Çesme is a very substantial area for Turkey due to its natural beauty and location. Working in such a delicate area gives a different kind of responsibility to the architect. The main aim is to design with the modern spirit of our day considering the area’s modest and peaceful environment which will eventually be a landmark for Çesme…Save this picture!© Thomas MayerSave this picture!Third Floor PlanSave this picture!© Thomas MayerThe Folkart BLU Project is located in a valuable area by the sea in Çesme Peninsula. The project has been designed through meticulous evaluations of various aspects such as climatic conditions and vegetation which has led project program to develop into the way it is at the moment. The building is located strategically where it faces the south and bearing the cold northern wind on its back which is used as well as natural ventilation for cooling. Even though the geometry of the site was challenging, it was not an obstacle to creating the right angles for the perfect views. Each one of the terraces is specially located in a way that has to shade according to sun directions and at the same time is a green area to each occupant. These green areas were created to give every unit a ‘floor garden’ spirit.Save this picture!© Thomas MayerThe functions and transitivity of the interior and exterior spaces were the major criteria whilst designing the building. Terraces are designed as the continuations of the units. The inner garden is a serene and shadowy environment which adds a spectacular perspective to the access corridors of each unit. The social facility which is at the same level with the interior garden and the pool holds every possible social need. Simple and natural material choices enhance the architectural power of the building. The project’s height is lowered to a three-floor height building which will have a modest silhouette and a harmonic relationship with the sea.

I am now calling on the CEO designate to decide on the location of the new headquarters as soon as possible.”Members of Limerick City Council have previously voiced their support for retaining the current VEC office on Cecil Street following the amalgamation of the three committees.Speaking at a recent City Council meeting, Cllr Kieran Hanlon stated that the VEC headquarters was “vital for businesses in the local community” and that many individuals who avail of the VEC’s services are “not in a position to pay for a taxi or bus out to Dooradoyle or indeed to Ennis”.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago According to Wells Fargo’s “2019 Midyear Outlook Eyes Forward: Opportunities and Challenges” report, 10-year economic expansion is not over. In the report,  Darrell Cronk, President of Wells Fargo investment Institute (WFII) and Chief Investment Officer of Wealth and Investment Management at Wells Fargo, notes that investors now need to “realign their portfolios with their long term goals.”“The theme we adopted at the beginning of 2019, ‘the end of easy,’ still resonates,” said Cronk. “The first half of 2019 has delivered exceptionally strong capital market returns across most major asset classes. However, there are risks for investors to keep an eye on such as a meaningful yield-curve inversion, continued volatility in equity markets, and heightened geopolitical tensions.”Paul Christopher, head of global market strategy for WFII, said, “Since early 2018, investor concerns have focused mostly on political uncertainties, and we view these as the main economic risk. Whether we are looking at Brexit or drawn-out trade negotiations, these geopolitical elements can deepen pressure on business confidence here in the U.S.”To help investors maintain a forward focus, “they should consider rebalancing their portfolios to increase diversification and exposure toward areas of economic growth and where valuations remain attractive,” added Christopher.The report outlines five strategies for investors to consider in the second half of 2019:Rebalance when volatility strikes.Potentially reduce price volatility with income-generating assets.Use cash to your advantage.Consider greater exposure to emerging market equities and sectors with higher-quality earnings.Add strategies that can benefit from various market conditions.The report that lists residential mortgage-backed securities as a favored fixed-income sector. According to data from Morningstar Credit Ratings, credit performance of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) backed by nonqualified mortgage loans remained strong in Q1 2019.Non-QM RMBS issuance also climbed in the first quarter, as several first-time issuers launched transactions. Morningstar rated seven new transactions that quarter, which brought the total number of non-QM RMBS deals we rated through the end of March 2019 to 23. The weighted average Morningstar loan-to-value ratio, or LTV, was 68.5% and the weighted average FICO score was 693, though the average loan size of $395,662 is below that of most other deals, while the weighted average coupon rate of 7.1% was the highest amongst the deals Morningstar rated.

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Foreclosure Sales: The Investor Outlook Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Market Studies, News For investors, buying foreclosure properties is always a risk. In a post on Forbes, Chris McAllister, Founder of Real Estate Brands Ltd., discussed the different methods by which investors can secure foreclosure properties, noting what to look for and the pros and cons for each method.“There are a lot of misconceptions out there about what it takes to get a great investment property at the best possible price,” McAllister said. “In my experience, foreclosed properties have always offered the most house for the money. These purchases, however, are more complicated than buying a house from a private seller, and often not for the faint of heart.”Foreclosure auction, or sheriff sales, are considered “hit or miss,” according to McAllister. He notes that at these auctions, the foreclosing banks will often bid the price up to buy it itself, and eventually place on the market as an REO property. Additionally, McAllister notes that sheriff sales often mean buyers do not get to see the property before purchase.McAllister also points out that short sales have been waning in popularity in recent years, and rarely result in better deals. The best method, McAllister says, is the multiple listing service (MLS). Through MLS, investors can find postings from all the major government players including the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as properties from investment firms looking to sell properties they purchased as part of pool sales will list with local real estate firms.What “makes or breaks” the REO purchase process will be your REO agent, McAllister argues, and the best agents have a strong understanding and inside knowledge of what is on the market at all times.Outside of the traditional methods, new technology coming to the foreclosure market is making investing simpler.  According to a recent Gallup poll, 35% of Americans believe real estate to be the superior long-term financial investment, compared to 27% who say stocks are the better investment. For real estate investors, tech such apps which allow for remote bidding could provide a quicker way to take advantage of the rising positive sentiment toward real estate as an investment. Additionally, many current homeowners (around 1 in 10) say they would prefer going back to renting over owning, according to Gallup’s research, which could be a boon for single-family rental investment.

The first Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy, asked the Election Commission to issue a clarification that “prohibit the unlawful assembly & movement” wouldn’t stand in the way of citizens going about their normal business and chores. Importantly, without setting aside the Section 144 order in its entirety, it was made clear that the prohibition of unlawful assembly and movement in terms of the relevant order wouldn’t affect the usual life of citizens. However, the Court directed that COVID protocol must be maintained at all times, including social distancing and wearing of a mask. The background of the Case A Puducherry official belonging to a national level political party [CPI(M)] instituted the instant public interest litigation, challenging Section 144 order passed by the District Magistrate in Puducherry. It was alleged that the order dated 22nd March, 2021 was, made public only on April 1, 2021 and would come into force from 7 pm today (04th April). It was stated that nothing in the relevant order suggested any unrest or anything untoward or even the apprehension of anything unlawful for a clampdown to be imposed. It was submitted that since this is a free country, the citizens could go about their usual chores as they choose and the election day, when they exercise their most basic democratic right, is no time to curb their right to move about freely or do other things as they choose. Importantly, the petitioner submitted that the result of this order would be that only the committed voter who will step out to vote as the ordinary voter may be led to believe that there is a possibility of trouble or violence and it may be better to not step out, even to vote. On the other hand, the Election Commission justified the imposition of Section 144 Order stating that the Order had been imposed throughout Puducherry in every general election since 2014 Court’s observations At the outset, the Court remarked, “Thankfully, this country allows expansive freedom to its citizens and, as the Constitution provides, there cannot be any authoritarian regime possible in the country nor any regimentation of the citizens or their lives.” The Court also opined that due care and caution must be exercised to ensure that the restrictions are not unreasonable or suffocating and further, the Court desisted the ‘unreasoned order’, which was prepared 10 or 15 days in advance and produced a day or two before it became effective. However, the Court added that sometimes, for the purpose of maintaining law and order and in the public interest, certain restrictions may be imposed, but such restrictions have always to be reasonable, proportional to the anticipated problem and the decision in such regard is always justiciable. The Court also observed, “Every citizen in a free country can do anything lawful that the citizen chooses and even the slightest of restriction on the citizens’ movement has to be justified.” In the present case, the Court noted, “The impugned notice of March 22, 2021 is singularly lacking in indicating any cogent reason for imposing restrictions on citizens’ movement and how citizens may choose to go about their business.” The Court also disapproved of the ‘blanket prohibitory order’ and said that merely because it had been imposed one or two previous occasions, the same could not be justified. “The issuance of a supercilious prohibitory order 2021 on the ruse that it would lead to smooth conduct of the election cannot pass muster without there being any justifiable basis therefore”, added the Court. Lastly, noting that EC’s clarification that the prohibition should not be regarded as a blanket prohibition of movement or assembly but confined to the specific areas, the Court observed that “It needs to be reiterated that the relevant order will be strictly restricted only to the prohibition of ‘unlawful assembly & movement, holding of public meetings, carrying of weapons, sticks, banners, placards etc., by any person and … shouting of slogans and using of Loud Speakers and acting in any manner detrimental to public peace and tranquility …’ In a sense, it is unnecessary to issue an order prohibiting unlawful assembly, since such an assembly, by definition, is illegal.” Case title – R.Rajangam v.

first_imgLumiNola/iStock(ATLANTA) — Oprah Winfrey is getting behind historically black colleges and universities in a big way.Last month, Winfrey donated more than $1 million to the United Negro College Fund for scholarships to HSBUs.And on Monday, she announced she would give $13 million to her scholarship program at Morehouse College — a private, historically black men’s college in Atlanta, Ga. — three decades after she first set up the program with a $12 million donation.Her new contribution brings her total investment to $25 million — the largest endowment in Morehouse’s history.After meeting 47 of her Oprah Winfrey Scholars, Winfrey explained why she felt compelled to help the students.“I understand that African-American men are an endangered species,” she said, according to a release from the university. “They are so misunderstood. They are so marginalized.”“Where and when I can lend support to try to change that image, I do,” she continued. “That is what Morehouse is doing. It is saying ‘This is who we really are.’”The college also presented Winfrey with a painting of her likeness, which she reposted on her Instagram along with a video from the event, during which she received roses from her scholars.“Spent a day marinating in black excellence with these gorgeous, promising, young men at @morehouse1867,” she wrote.“They honored me with roses, a song, and a portrait for a scholarship fund I set up 30 years ago,” she wrote. “Can’t wait to see what they do with their future.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
