LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. This new house, located in Mohican Hills Maryland is constructed on a steeply sloping, wooded site. Distant views of the Potomac River are afforded in the late fall, winter, and early spring. A simple rectangular volume, the house is revealed as a two-story structure seen from the street. This extends an additional two stories on the opposite elevation to take advantage of the steep grade, resulting in a four-story volume facing the Potomac River. The house is anchored into the earth with two concrete end walls, extending all four stories. Wood-framed walls clad In Shou Sugi Ban with minimal fenestration connect the two concrete walls at the front of the house. On the woodland side, the four-story infill is mostly glass. This is articulated in the fenestration and the exterior material choices.Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderSave this picture!Northwest elevationSave this picture!© Anice HoachlanderA series of decks and balconies extend from the glass façade to provide outdoor living experiences at each of the four levels on the wooded side. The street-side remains relatively solid, with most service and utility core elements dedicated to that side. Corten panels and a wood fence define a private front yard. Access to the house is provided with a bridge extending from the street.Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderThe end of the bridge provides a platform with a panoramic vista towards the woods and a moment to pause before proceeding towards the front door. The path to the front door and vertical movement connecting the four levels are carefully orchestrated with selected landscape views and visual connections into a double-height living space, that organizes the composition.  Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderSave this picture!Main living level floor planSave this picture!© Anice HoachlanderThe project is modulated as a series of experiences that lead you away from the street and ultimately into a tranquil environment to enjoy the serene, wooded landscape.  Save this picture!© Anice HoachlanderProject gallerySee allShow lessCasablanca Finance City Tower / Morphosis ArchitectsSelected ProjectsRed House / TARA | Taller de ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share “COPY” Architects: Robert Gurney Architect Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeRobert Gurney ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWashingtonOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on January 25, 2021Cite: “Franzen House / Robert Gurney Architect” 25 Jan 2021.

In future, all Lloyds TSB Charity of the Year partnerships will run for 18 months.Sally Jones-Evans, Lloyds TSB executive sponsor of their Charity of the Year Programme, said: “This extra time period on the charity of the year relationship is a real boost for both Lloyds TSB and Barnardo’s, and it gives all Lloyds TSB staff an extra chance to show much they Believe in Children.” Barnardo’s faced competition from over 100 charities to secure the relationship for 2007 and a record number of staff participated in the voting process.

TCU staff get a second shot at an education

TCU staff get a second shot at an education

first_imgGrace Amisshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grace-amiss/ Twitter Grace Amisshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grace-amiss/ One student goes to school in hopes of getting a raise at her job. The other, to be a role model for her kids. The third just wants to own a house in the countryside. Although each student has their own individual goals, they have one thing in common — they’re not a typical TCU student. They’re staff members. For 90 minutes twice a week, TCU staff members clock out from their job and clock into class to work towards their GED, a test that equates to a U.S. high school diploma when passed. The program, created by TCU Human Resources, is part of the university’s “Lead On” initiative with goals to strengthen the workforce and academic profile of TCU’s community.One can usually find Pamela Sanchez cleaning the stadium to make sure it’s pristine for gamedays. However, starting at 3:30 p.m. she heads toward Room 243 in the Rickel to switch from sanitizing to studying. Although her workday isn’t technically over, her supervisors allow her to attend class during her shift. “I’ve always wanted to go to school,” Sanchez said. “I know I’ve made mistakes and dropped out for me to get here, but you have to put your foot forward and do your best.” When the going gets tough, Sanchez looks to her 7-year-old nephew for motivation. “I want to succeed to show him that anything is possible to do,” Sanchez said. “I’ve gone through a lot my whole entire life and he’s the main reason why I’m taking this. So I can succeed, go on with my future and become better.” Despite all of the hardships she faces, Sanchez knows her work will pay off. “I want one day, hopefully, to own my own home out in the country,” Sanchez said. “I want to show people that I succeeded. Not only them but myself, too. That I can do it.”Cynthia Solis is another one of the seven students in the class. She’s been at TCU for 10 years as a part of Sodexo. Although she’s been on campus for a decade, these classes help her feel truly integrated into the TCU community. “It’s a big thing for me — you’re not just a vendor, you’re a part of TCU,” Solis said. “Everyone is so friendly, everyone treats you with equality. For me, it’s what TCU is about.” Solis, like Sanchez, has children who look up to her. By returning to school, she hopes to show her two teenagers that anything is possible. “It’s being an example that it’s never too late to go back,” Solis said. “You can always go back but it gets harder and harder, so why not do it the first time?” The test is devised of six subjects – reading, writing, math, science and social studies. Once the student passes one of the subject tests, they begin studying for the next. Currently, the class is focused on passing the math portion, the hardest of the six. Fort Worth ISD Adult Education instructor Johnnie Hunt ensures the students feel prepared — emotionally and academically — to take the test. “I help keep them confident and encourage them,” Hunt said. “They can go as high as they want and we will work with them.” For Sonia Gallegos, another one of the students, the sky is the limit. She’s been at TCU for 20 years, but once she gets her GED, she has a promotion waiting for her. “I didn’t this I was going to make it this long,” Gallegos said. “I can show my daughter that she can do it because sometimes she wants to quit and she sees me and she tells me ‘Mom don’t quit’ and I tell her ‘OK, you don’t quit either.’”While most parents help their children with their homework, Gallegos and her daughter help each other with their studies.“I told her ‘I want my GED’ and now I’m here,” Gallegos said. “Now, I can help my daughter with her homework and it makes me feel good about myself.”Hunt said the class is planning to take the math test by December, and hopes for a perfect passing score.

Protecting Limerick workers from rogue employers

Protecting Limerick workers from rogue employers

first_imgFacebook Email Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Linkedin NewsProtecting Limerick workers from rogue employersBy Alan Jacques – January 15, 2015 879 Twitter Advertisement Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr Maurice QuinlivanSINN Féin’s Maurice Quinlivan is to seek the support of the Council’s metropolitan district to call on the Government to amend the Companies Bill 2012 to provide for the piercing of the corporate veil to protect vulnerable workers from calculated breaches of employment law by rogue employers.Cllr Quinlivan told the Limerick Post that he believes workers’ rights, particularly those on low pay in the retail and services sectors have become increasingly precarious over the last number of years. The City North representative, insists that far too often we see company directors walking away from their responsibilities, not because they cannot afford to meet their liabilities, but because existing employment and company law allows them to.“There have been a number of high profile cases where workers have had to resort to sit-ins and other types of protracted industrial actions to secure their rights and entitlements. We saw workers in Cork in Vita Cortex and here in Limerick in HMV and Game occupy their place of employment to demand their entitlements,” Cllr Quinlivan declared.“Over the last couple of years there has been an increasing demand for government to hold company directors to account for outstanding non-payment of awards and pay arising from breaches of employment law,” he added.The Sinn Féin leader on the Council, claims that rogue employers are hiding behind the “corporate veil” provided for in company law and as a result vulnerable workers are being left high and dry.“We know there are a small number of unscrupulous business owners who continue to establish a number of companies in an effort to break the link between assets, operations and employees. The provision of the corporate veil in company law in effect separates the legal personality of a company from its Directors thus protecting them from personal liability of the company’s obligations,” he concluded.At next Monday’s metropolitan district meeting, he will ask councillors to write to Enterprise Minister Richard Bruton calling on him to amend the Companies Bill 2012 to include a provision that will prevent unscrupulous directors exploiting company law to withhold outstanding pay and other earned entitlements.

Man accused of stealing from Kmart days after buying $8 million private island

Man accused of stealing from Kmart days after buying $8 million private island

first_imgMonroe County Sheriff’s Office(MIAMI) — A Florida man was arrested on Saturday for shoplifting at a Kmart, just days after he purchased a multi-million-dollar private island off Key West.Andrew Lippi, 59, was accused of stealing about $300 worth of household goods from a Kmart in Key West, where police said he purchased various items between March 30 and April 4, replaced them with cheaper items and returned them for a refund. Lippi made headlines last week when he purchased Thompson Island, a private estate formerly owned by the philanthropist and developer Edward B. Knight, for $8 million, according to ABC Miami affiliate WPLG-TV.Lippi also owns a 12-bedroom resort compound in Key West that MTV used to film a season of The Real World in 2006. That property rents for about $1,800 a night on Airbnb, WPLG reported.Lippi stands accused of stealing multiple items, including LED light bulbs and a $55 Hamilton Beach coffee maker, which he allegedly “replaced with a much older coffee maker” and returned for a full refund, according to the Key West Police Department.Police said Lippi also bought a $150 Keurig coffee machine on March 30, returned it and received a full refund a day later. Kmart employees notified the store’s loss prevention officer after realizing the coffee machine box instead contained a basketball, according to police.Lippi denied denied stealing the items, according to a police report.“Lippi stated he did not change out any items prior to returning them,” the arresting officer wrote in the report. “I asked Lippi about the Keurig coffee machine being replaced by a basketball, and he stated the clerk should have realized there was no coffee machine by the weight of the box.”“I asked Lippi about the light bulbs, and he stated he returned the light bulbs because he paid too much money for them and did not know how they were switched,” the officer said.ABC News could not reach Lippi for comment late Monday night, but he told the Miami Herald that the situation “has to do with a commercial dispute.”“It’s very complicated and I’d rather not get into it,” Lippi told the Herald in a phone interview. “I will say this, that the way it was handled by Key West police and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department was wonderful. Some of the finest people I’ve ever dealt with who were kind throughout the whole process.”Lippi was arrested on grand theft charges and released the following day. Jail records show he posted no bond for his release. He’s scheduled to appear in court for an arraignment on April 18. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Clear cannabis policies needed at work

Clear cannabis policies needed at work

first_imgHRprofessionals have been warned to clarify their organisation’s position oncannabis use at work following the Government’s decision to make possession ofthe drug a non-arrestable offence.FranWilson, HR adviser at the CIPD, advised the profession to inform staff thatdespite re-classification of cannabis to a class C drug, its use is stillillegal.Shesaid: “It is still a perception-changing drug so it would not be safe foran employee to drive machinery after use. Companies will have formal alcoholand drugs policies and HR must make sure it is communicated to staff that theuse of cannabis comes under that policy.”PaulHunter, managing director of Altrix Healthcare, believes that HR does notrecognise the “growing problem” of social drug use by staff and isconcerned the profession’s ignorance could lead to safety and performanceproblems. “Many employers in this country have yet to wake up to the factthat social drug use is a spiralling problem,” he said.”Staffmight feel at liberty to smoke a joint during an office lunch, regardless ofthe impact this will have on their ability to work during the afternoon. Thesooner HR professionals realise this the better.”Hunteradvised employers to check employee smoking areas for evidence of cannabis use. Related posts:No related photos.
