However, the building seeks its own rules of composition – derived from the location – to create its own autonomy and identity.Save this picture!© Jean-Michel LandecySurrounded by newly planted trees, the building has a visually pleated effect created by undulating bands of subtly coloured concrete on the walls. The balcony parapets and inset glass facade together create an ‘organic’ rhythm that emulates the foliage of the trees. Save this picture!© Jean-Michel LandecyMovement around the building is by means of naturally lit stairwells, situated on the front facade: a location that lends dignity to this communal and social space. The project uses rational typologies that accommodate the building’s perfect north-south orientation and built-up surroundings. These typologies are inspired by local layout styles, which historically consist of a central communal core around which are placed two traversing apartments and one apartment that is mono-oriented to the south. Save this picture!© Jean-Michel LandecyThe interior of each apartment consists of an entrance hall leading into a living area extending through the full depth of the building, from garden to street. Depending on the size of the apartment, the bedrooms are either north- or south-facing. The living rooms of all apartments open onto the broad balcony-terrace.   Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBook Presentation & Architects ConferenceEventMoMA: Applied DesignEventProject locationAddress:Geneva, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Photo courtesy of TCU Basketball’s Twitter.Like Frank, Mike Miles was also pursuing a state title when his season was cut short by the pandemic. Behind his 21 points, four assists and three steals per game, Miles led his team to a 39-1 record, leaving them as the top-ranked 5A team in the state.Ranked No. 7 in the state of Texas, the guard was named All-Area Boys Basketball Player of the Year in March by the Dallas Morning News.Eddie Lampkin – Morton Ranch High School, Katy, TexasRounding out the 2020 roster is Eddie Lampkin, a 6-foot-10 center who made history in his time at Morton Ranch High School.Behind 11.6 points and 10.9 rebounds per game as a senior, Lampkin led Morton Ranch to its first-ever regional tournament. Although the Mavericks fell in the 6A regional semifinals, their 30-straight district game wins with Lampkin is believed to be the top streak in Katy ISD basketball, according to Katy ISD.Lampkin selected TCU over multiple other Texas schools, including Baylor and Texas A&M.

While senior guard Desmond Bane, who ranks third all-time at TCU with 1,768 points, fourth with 652 field goals and first with 247 3-pointers made, is headed for the NBA, head coach Jamie Dixon’s 2020 recruiting class looks more than capable to pick up the slack.

Soldiers fire on Aden-based newspaper, killing one employee and wounding three others

first_img May 13, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Soldiers fire on Aden-based newspaper, killing one employee and wounding three others News Reporters Without Borders condemns the military assault which government soldiers launched against the headquarters of the daily Al Ayyam in Aden (360 km south of Sanaa) at 11:30 a.m. today. One of the newspaper’s employees was killed and three others were wounded.“The Yemeni authorities have been going out of their way to persecute Al Ayyam and this military assault is the culmination,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Even the world’s worst dictatorships do not go this far. The countries of the Arab League and the international community must intercede so that Al Ayyam can resume working normally.”The Yemeni army began its assault on Al Ayyam’s headquarters, located in the Aden district of Crater, by firing tear gas. This was followed by gunfire that killed one employee and injured three others. Troops sealed off the streets leading to the newspaper and set up military checkpoints to prevent access to the neighbourhood.Harassment of Al Ayyam began to escalate on 1 May when a truck carrying about 16,500 copies of the newspaper was intercepted by gunmen on the Lahej road 50 km north of Aden. The driver was forced to abandon the truck and all the copies were seized.The same thing happened on the morning of 3 May to two of the newspaper’s delivery trucks, one bound for Taez and the other for Sanaa. A total of 30,000 copies of the newspaper were taken and the drivers were held for 17 hours. These attacks are believed to have been the work of a pro-government organisation that claims to defend national unity.The next day, 4 May, the information minister banned the printing of Al Ayyam and six other newspapers for allegedly promoting “separatism.” Many journalists staged a sit-in in Sanaa on 7 May in solidarity with the seven newspapers.There were more attacks on the newspaper’s vehicles on 9 May, while police and soldiers made an attempt to arrest Al Ayyam editor Hisham Bashareel on 11 May. Street leading to the newspaper were blocked the same morning. The authorities claim that Bashareel is wanted for his role in a murder outside Al Ayyam’s office in Sanaa in 2008.Al-Ayyam’s local correspondents have often been threatened in the past and its Sanaa office was the target of an armed attack on 12 February 2008 (http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=25751).Created in 1958, Al-Ayyam is one of Yemen’s leading dailies. It has no political affiliation but, with headquarters in the southern city of Aden, it acts as a mouthpiece of the inhabitants of the poor southern provinces and has provided extensive coverage of the social unrest in the south in recent months.

Pasadena Police Officers will be in Pasadena’s entertainment district where they will seek volunteers from club and bar clientele. They will be asking these volunteers to guess their blood alcohol levels (BAC) and if they’d feel safe operating a motor vehicle. The volunteers will then have the opportunity to blow into a breathalyzer to determine their current BAC level.For most, it’s common knowledge that the legal blood alcohol (BAC) limit for operating a motor vehicle in the state of California is less than .08 percent. However, many people might not realize how much alcohol, or more importantly, how little alcohol it takes to get to a BAC of .08 percent or more.“It’s surprising for most to actually witness how high their BAC levels are,” says Lieutenant Diego Torr es of the PPD Traffic Section. First-time DUI drivers in California can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspensions and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.The program is not intended as a scare tactic. Instead, it is designed to provide an educational opportunity within Pasadena’s Community. Drivers are encourage to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone. The DDVIP app helps find nearby bars and restaurants that feature free incentives for the designated sober driver, from free non-alcoholic drinks to free appetizers and more. The feature-packed app even has social media tie-ins and even a tab for the non-DD to call Uber, Lyft or Curb.Funding for this DUI Educational Program is provided to Pasadena Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, throug h the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Driver – Call 9-1-1’.

High Tax Assessments Possible Cause for Growing Foreclosure Rate

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Tagged with: assessments Constitution Detroit foreclosure rate limit Michigan property values About Author: Dean Terrell Subscribe Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago According to an article from The Washington Post, high assessments may be to blame for Detroit, Michigan’s foreclosure crisis. Two college professors, Bernadette Atuahene and Tim Hodges, published a study making the case that the property tax on thousands of homes’ were illegally assessed. In 2015, Detroit had one of the highest foreclosure rates at 3,949 foreclosures per 100,000 people.In an article from Detroit Free Press, Atuahene cited data from her previous study titled “Stagegraft” last year showing a consistent rate of tax assessments higher than what the Michigan State Constitution allows from 2009-2015. “In our study, we find that Detroit’s assessor is flagrantly violating this vital state constitutional provision” Atuahene told the Press.The Michigan constitution states homes cannot be assessed at more than 50 percent of its market value. However, data from Atuahene’s most recent report suggests that between 55 and 85 percent of homes were assessed well above the legal amount from 2008 to 2015, according to the Post. More than 160,000 homes have been foreclosed on in Detroit since 2002.Another important detail is how certain properties were targeted based on property values. Data showed cheaper properties were more likely to be assessed higher than the more expensive ones. In an interview, Atuahene states “We found in [the lowest priced homes] 95 percent or more were being assessed in violation of the Michigan constitution. But when you get to the highest valued homes, only 13 percent were assessed in violation.”In the article from the Post, Detroit Chief Assessor Alvin Horhn disputed the findings of the more recent study which is planned to be published next year. “Much of the data does not meet the standards of the State Tax Commission. Therefore its findings would not be applicable under Michigan law” Horhn told the Post.

Sanders said other items expected to be considered at Monday night’s meeting are the liability and property insurance contracts for the coming year. “The Association of County Commissions of Alabama had a liability proposal but didn’t have a property proposal,” Sanders said. “My understanding is they will come back with a property proposal at Monday’s meeting. The Witherington Insurance Group of Troy presented a proposal for both liability and property insurance. The ACCA and Witherington Insurance Group should have complete proposals as part of the review.” When the Pike County Commission meets Sept. 29 to vote on the FY 2014-2015 budget, the commissioners will have to come to an agreement how to fund organizations’ requests.Each year, the commission allocates $150,000 from a sales tax fund in support of a variety of community agencies and organizations. This year, however, an additional $46,000 in funding has been requested, and the commission must decide if it will honor those requests through general fund revenues.The commission tabled its budget approval process on Monday, citing these requests and other issues. At that meeting, Commissioner Joey Jackson said the funding has to stop somewhere and expressed concern about taking an additional $46,000 from the general fund to honor the additional requests.
