It recalls the former nursery on the estate and also interprets the clients brief to built a „garden house“. “COPY” Houses 2009 Germany 2009 photographs:  Michael NastPhotographs:  Michael Nast+ 19 Sharelast_img read more

CONCEPTDue to the rapid urbanization, many cities in Vietnam are losing their tropical green space and low-density landscapes are transforming into a densely populated metropolis. Increasing risk of flood, together with serious air pollution in urban areas has resulted in the situation. And Vietnamese new generation is being disconnected with nature. Against this backdrop, VTN Architects (Vo Trong Nghia Architects) is developing a series of house project, “House for Trees”, to create green space within a high-density neighborhood. As the most recent project in this series, Stacked Planters House strives to bring greens back to the city and forge an intimate relationship between human and nature.  CONTEXTThe house is located in a neatly planned urban area, where the residents built up to the maximum allowable height. Maximum living spaces were achieved here by reducing the green spaces. By bringing greens back to the house, each house serves as a small park in a dense neighborhood. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanPLANNINGThe house is designed for a typical Vietnamese family with three generations. Each private function is packed into a concrete box that is seemingly stacked randomly. The horizontal concrete slabs, between boxes, are the terraces where trees grow. These semi-outdoor spaces serve as living and dining rooms where people gather.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiMATERIAL The “House for trees” series always pays special attention to local and natural materials. What makes this project special, is the terrazzo wall which was a popular material back in the 80s, yet forgotten in recent years. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki OkiProject gallerySee allShow lessHeatherwick’s Floating Pier 55 in New York Officially AbandondedArchitecture NewsNew Exhibition Highlights the Best Unbuilt Works by Zaha Hadid ArchitectsExhibition Share Area:  260 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

Violations of the right to information in Brazil are subject of a new hearing by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR)

first_img Tomorrow, October 6, a coalition of 14 organizations, including Reporters Without Borders (RSF), will present to the IACHR Brazil’s current scenario of lack of access to reliable information. In March 2020, RSF was also part of the delegation that, in the hearing held in Haiti, reported on the decline in freedom of expression in Brazil to the IACHR. October 6, 2020 Violations of the right to information in Brazil are subject of a new hearing by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) Tomorrow, civil society organizations will participate in a virtual public hearing with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) to denounce violations of the right to information and how these violations affect historically vulnerable populations in Brazil. The coalition points out that, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, indigenous people, women, the black population, the LGBTQI+ population, children, adolescents, and residents of slums and peripheries have been deprived of the right to access reliable information, and as a result their rights to freedom of expression, education and health are seriously violated. At the center of the meeting with the IACHR will be the responsibility of the Brazilian government in this panorama, since decisions made by the federal government itself caused a blackout of data about the status of the pandemic in the country. According to surveys and monitoring carried out by organizations that are part of the coalition, in addition to violating the constitutional commitment to transparency with state-held information, the federal government has been the author of disinformation campaigns and successive attacks against information providers and journalists, especially women.  The IACHR is an autonomous body of the Organization of American States (OAS). Its mandate is to promote the observance and defense of human rights in the region, acting as an OAS advisory body on the subject. BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesInternational bodies Freedom of expressionViolence Receive email alerts News “The denial of access to information, stemming not only from the federal government’s omissions but also from its active role in the violation of this right, is clearly the result of a decision by the Brazilian state to ignore the laws and treaties to which Brazil is a signatory, with violent consequences on the lives of women, black men and women, indigenous people, and other vulnerable populations, and this is why we urgently request a visit to Brazil by the rapporteur,” said Iara Moura, executive coordinator of Intervozes, one of the organizations that requested the IACHR hearing.  April 27, 2021 Find out more Reports to go further News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America The organizations also intend to reiterate a request for the IACHR Rapporteur for Freedom of Expression to visit Brazil.

Required fields are marked * Government Governor Again Chides Residents Against Complacency In Virus Fight CITY NEWS SERVICE Published on Friday, June 26, 2020 | 1:52 pm More Cool Stuff A week ahead of the Fourth of July holiday, Gov. Gavin Newsom Friday issued another stern warning to residents about the dangers of public or family gatherings while blasting “lazy punditry” suggesting that hot weather will kill the coronavirus.The warning came as the governor announced a 3.3% increase since Thursday in the number of people hospitalized with the virus, and a 4.4% daily jump in the number of people in intensive care units.State figures show that the number of people hospitalized in California has risen more than 30% over the last two weeks.“Hospitalizations going up. The number of people in ICUs going up. The number of people on ventilators going up,” Newsom said. “… We are in the midst of the first wave of this pandemic. We are not out of the first wave. This disease does not take a summer vacation. And let us disabuse ourselves that somehow, the lazy punditry that was out there, that somehow this is a seasonal disease and triple-digit weather will annihilate it. Look at the states that are seeing unprecedented record increases. There’s no correlations in that respect, quite the contrary.”Major spikes in coronavirus have been reported in recent days in the hot-weather states of Arizona, Texas and Florida.“So I cannot impress upon people more as you move into understandably a festive mode reflecting on the birth of Democracy and freedom and we celebrate our independence as a nation, that you do so responsibly,” he said.Newsom reported that as of Friday, the seven-day average daily rate of people testing positive for the virus is 5.7% statewide, a number that has been slowly rising. In Los Angeles County, that rate was at 8.4% as of Thursday, a level not seen in the county since April.Newsom warned that the rising numbers of cases and hospitalizations being seen now are going to translate into more fatalities in the coming weeks.“… I cannot impress upon folks more the virulence of this disease, the nature of the transmission of this disease and how we are experiencing unprecedented grwoth in the total number of cases,” he said. “And you will see, mark my words … with the death rates, they’re lagging. You will see that these positivity rates going up in the last week or two, that in the next week or two you will start to see numbers increase not just in the hospitals … but you’ll start seeing that tragically in the number of lives lost.“And it’s not just 80- and 90-year-olds that are losing their lives. It’s not just 65 years old and older that are getting positive test results back. So please, even if you don’t feel sick, you may be transmitting this disease.”Newsom noted that some California counties are struggling with the virus more than others. The virus is spreading so rapidly in Imperial County that the state has asked the county to reinstate stay-at-home orders, because the hospital system in the area can’t handle the surge in cases.The governor said the state has also put a hold on any further loosening of its health restrictions, meaning high-risk businesses such as theme parks and concert venues will be waiting much longer before being cleared to open.

What is Driving the Increase in Forbearance Activity?

first_img Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The data analysts at Black Knight on Friday published weekly forbearance numbers. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the data covered activity through Monday (November 23) as opposed to the usual one-week period.According to a Black Knight representative, in summary, the number of mortgages in active forbearance saw another slight increase this week, increasing by 27,000 from the previous report.”It’s important to remember that mild increases like this have been common in the middle of the month. Since the recovery started, the strongest declines have typically been seen early in the month, as expiring forbearance plans are removed,” said Black Knight analyst Andy Walden.The increase last week, according to Black Knight’s  McDash Flash daily performance dataset, included a 17,000 rise in FHA/VA forbearances and a 10,000 increase among loans in private label securities or banks’ portfolios. GSE forbearances remained flat week-over-week.Despite the increase, the number of active forbearances remains down 7% (-207,000) from last month, roughly equivalent to the declines seen in August and September.As of November 23, 2.78 million homeowners are in active forbearance plans, representing approximately 5.3% of all active mortgages, up from 5.2% from last week. Together, they represent $564 billion in unpaid principal.Some 3.6% of all GSE-backed loans and 9.2% of all FHA/VA loans are currently in forbearance plans. Another 5.1% of loans in private-label securities or banks’ portfolios are also in forbearance.Of the 2.78 million loans still in active forbearance, 81% have had their terms extended at some point since March.Black Knight reports that “with COVID-19 cases spiking across the country, it will be important to keep an eye on the possibility of increasing unemployment numbers and forbearance starts over the coming weeks. Black Knight will continue to monitor the situation and report our findings [on its] blog.” Previous: Credit Scores and Down Payments Reach All-Time Highs Next: Top 10 Safest Cities in the U.S. Home / Daily Dose / What is Driving the Increase in Forbearance Activity?

Fannie Mae Upgrades Predictions for 2021 Housing Market, Economy

When she isn’t researching and writing, she moonlights as an amateur accountant and bookkeeper for a small family brewpub, because unlike most writers, she isn’t afraid of numbers. Home / Daily Dose / Fannie Mae Upgrades Predictions for 2021 Housing Market, Economy Fannie Mae Upgrades Predictions for 2021 Housing Market, Economy  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Many factors have contributed to Fannie Mae’s updated prediction for end-of-year and 2021 growth. Stronger-than-expected data coming in, positive vaccine developments, and increased talks of additional stimulus have helped keep the economy moving ahead.Originally forecasted at negative 2.5%, full-year growth is now expected to be negative 2.2%, a .3% increase. And the 2021 forecast has gone from 3.3% growth to 4.5% growth, a healthy 1.2% increase. Fannie Mae has even gone as far as predict that 2022 will experience 3.2% growth, which has increased .2% since November’s original prediction.As for the housing market, October was stronger than predicted, but things are slowing down. However, Q4 is now forecasted to hit 7.6 million as opposed to the original prediction of 7.16 million.Naturally, the faster pace of existing sales has also altered the forecast for mortgage originations. 2020 should hit $4.29 trillion—up $169 billion—and 2021 is predicted to reach $3.47 trillion—up $745 billion.Inventory in the housing market continues to be an issue, but 2021 Q1 should still be stronger than Q1 of this year, up 12.1%. And rapid appreciation has made homes less affordable. In fact, the CoreLogic National Home Price Index reports home prices have jumped 7.3% between October 2019 and October 2020.The demand for new builds continues to climb, as well. Single-family new construction rose 6.4% in October, the highest rate since 2007. However, Fannie Mae reports this pace is unsustainable and should taper off by spring.As for the current trend of people moving to more spacious areas, specifically suburban locations, whether or not it’s fueled by Covid-19 remains to be seen. But regardless, the trend doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime in the near future.All in all, the housing market has done well, despite the many problems caused by the pandemic.

VIDEO: 16th annual summer music program celebrates black joy

first_imgIt’s transformative, Nunn said, “to engage them in this incredible opportunity to fall in love with themselves and their contribution to a collective. It’s a true joy, it’s a true joy.” ITHACA, N.Y. — When the Community Unity Music Education Program (CUMEP) launched 16 years ago, 16 kids signed up. This year more than 150 campers took part in the monthlong camp at Southside Community Center, which uses the arts as a vehicle to teach kids the values of creativity, kindness and community. Over four weeks of music, dance and art, Nunn said kids at CUMEP have a chance to engage in conversations inspired by abolitionist teachers like local educator and activist Jacqueline Melton Scott, who passed away last March, and Bettina Love, author of “We Want to Do More than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom.” Looking ahead, Nunn and the whole CUMEP community have big dreams. Inspired by Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit to the Southside Community Center more than 80 years ago, they’re inviting another first lady to attend next year’s CUMEP celebration. Michelle Obama, if you’re reading this: same time, same place next year.

He said more than 300 people were expected for the program’s grand finale on Thursday, a performance showcasing all the kids’ creativity and work. Devon Magliozzi “We are celebrating black joy, interrupting the anti-blackness that many of our young people are taught on a daily basis,” said Nia Nunn, chair of the board at Southside and professor of education at Ithaca College. Kemet Rivkin-Danham-El, a counselor at the camp, said she finds it inspiring to teach kids about subjects that weren’t covered in her history classes. “It’s really cool to see, and really empowering to see, all these little kids talking about actual, important topics. Actually learning things that weren’t taught to us until we were older.” Kalyani Ramanujan, who was a camper back in the day, said returning to CUMEP as a counselor has opened her eyes to kids’ capacity to understand complex issues. “I find it really empowering and amazing to be able to teach all of these kids, and to be a part of teaching them human rights and also the arts incorporated within that.” Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice.
