Photographer’s Weekendhouse / Shin Ohori – General Design

It was challenging to find a starting point from a flat site of about 1500 square meters near the KUJYUKURI beach where the desolate landscape spreads out. After studying various ideas from a tower overlooking the Pacific Ocean through several small houses scattering around, we finally reached a solution incorporating a one-storied courthouse with four courtyards. We felt that the strength and simplicity of its structure fitted well with this extensive open space. The volume of rough concrete blended in with its desolate landscape as if it were there for an eternity. Save this picture!© Daici AnoIn contrast to a simple external volume of rough concrete, an internal space enclosed with walls is designed to show the depth of space as well as interplay of light and shadow. The cross-shaped space cut out by the four courtyards arranged in the four corners of the building provides a continuity despite having necessary structural walls in between. Walls are placed only to divide the space loosely allowing light and space to play with our visual perception and create illusions of distance. There are horizontal spaces connecting to the courtyards, darker spaces enclosed with walls, and vertical spaces stretched out to the sky. While going through these spaces playing with one’s vision, one’s mind starts to enjoy a continuous labyrinth of inside versus outside, and light versus shadow. Save this picture!© Daici AnoA request from the client, a photographer, was to build a space where light and shadow interplay beautifully. Throughout the day, natural light comes into the building from four courtyards. Sometimes it shines against a big wall creating a bright mirror effect. Other times it aims low casting an interesting shadow figure on a courtyard. Playing with light and shadow, this weekend house is forever continually in a state of change.

Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. center_img Saoirse Exton protesting outside the Limerick 2030 offices last Friday.A THIRTEEN-year-old Limerick schoolgirl who is deeply concerned about the environment is staging a series of strikes from school as part of the international ‘Fridays for Future’ action on climate change.Saoirse Exton was inspired by Swedish teenager, Greta Sundberg, who started the action. The young Limerick activist is now calling on local students, children and adults to join her in marking the world days of school strike for climate change action on March 15.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A student at Gaelchoilaiste Luimnigh, Saoirse spent last Friday with a fellow student outside the Limerick 2030 office on O’Connell Street with posters calling for climate action and she intends to do the same this Friday.“I was nervous at first but the people were so lovely to us – bringing us hot drinks and chocolate. It started to be fun, talking to people about climate change and the environment”.The first year student, who lives in O’Brien’s Bridge, said she knew that action was needed on climate change “but I didn’t really let myself think about how bad it was. I didn’t face my fears until now”.Inspired by the Swedish schoolgirl’s action, Saoirse began intensely reading into the subject.“I’ve always tried to keep up with environmental news through the BBC and I read the Guardian. I think a lot of people are like me, they just haven’t realised yet how serious this is”.Saoirse saw videos and heard speeches by Greta Sundberg and joined Fridays for Future Ireland.Having become something of a celebrity, Saoirse said many of the Limerick councillors came to talk to her and offer support.“There were TDs as well – Maurice Quinliven and Jan O’Sullivan. They were very supportive”.Her school has not disciplined her for skipping school to stage her protest.“I didn’t actually say anything in advance of the first day but my principal asked me how Friday went. I did get a friend to bring the homework so I could get that done,” she said.This Friday and next Friday morning, Saoirse will be outside the 2030 offices again but on Friday, March 15, she will be in Arthurs Quay Park at 1pm and hopes for a big turn out in support of her protest, which will move from the park to City Hall for a rally.“I would love for adults, schoolchildren – everyone who can to join me. We need people to get action,” she said.

General Population Trails Servicemembers in Financial Well Being

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. General Population Trails Servicemembers in Financial Well Being According to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Annual Report on financial literacy and preparedness, military servicemembers show slightly higher levels of financial well-being compared to the general population.The report was released by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which created a test to measure financial well-being. Scores range from 0-100, with a higher score correlating to higher levels of financial well-being.The average score was 61 for a servicemember on active duty and 60 for reserve members. The general population had the lowest share of higher scores at just 36%. Fifty percent of active servicemembers and 45% of reserve members scored higher than 61. The average score for the general population was 54.The general population had the most individual scores in the bottom tier at 13%. Servicemembers combined to have just 10% score lower than 10.“The higher levels of financial well-being exhibited by servicemembers may be explained by certain characteristics and benefits of military service,” the report states. “For example, the CFPB found in its research that U.S. adults with a stable month-to-month income had a higher score (56) than those whose income varies from month-to-month (50). Individuals with employer-provided health benefits had a higher score (56) than those without (51).”Of course, this report does not imply that servicemembers do not have financial challenges. According to the survey, about one-third of servicemembers have less than one month of emergency savings, and 23% of junior enlisted servicemembers had no emergency funds.The CFPB recently started its “Start Small, Save Up” initiative, after research found 40% of Americans could not cover a $400 emergency expense.A 2018 National Association of REALTORS Research Group report entitled “Veterans & Active Military Home Buyers Profile” found that active-duty military make up 2% of all American homebuyers, with veterans accounting for 17%, and 81% non-military. The report also found that, while active-duty military homebuyers do have a lower median income than non-military buyers at $84,000, they have other advantages, including stable job security and no-down-payment financing options. A full 56% of active-duty homebuyers put no money down when purchasing a home, and 41% of veterans. For comparison’s sake, only 7% of non-military buyers are able to make use of no-down-payment financing options.Among active-duty military who financed their home, 77% used a VA loan and 15% used a conventional loan. For veterans, 58% used a VA loan and 33% used a conventional loan.Overall financial well being has been a topic of discussion in recent weeks after April’s job’s report showed the lowest unemployment rate (3.6%) since 1969.  April saw the addition of 263,000 jobs, which was the strongest month for job growth since January and the 103rd straight month of gains.“Today’s report suggests that the labor market remains healthy, which should ease recession concerns and curb expectations of a Fed rate cut for the moment,” Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, said. “We expect the Fed to remain patient given a solid labor market and little evidence of upside inflation risks.Representatives from the mortgage servicing industry recently gathered for a charity golf tournament benefiting military servicemembers through Operation Homefront.

Tech Prediction for 2014: Targeting the Value Office to Transform IT Business

first_imgJohn F. Kennedy once said, “Change is the law of life and those who only look to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” Nowhere is this truer today than in the world of IT.That world as we know it is shifting rapidly from the client/server-based “2nd Platform” days to the “3rd Platform” era driven by the onslaught of Big Data, Mobile, Social, and Cloud technologies. Companies are not only challenged with managing massive amounts of data, but also protecting, optimizing, and ensuring that the right information is accessible to the right users at the right time.If done unsuccessfully, their entire business is at risk.If done right, it’s a game-changer.I believe this transformation starts where work happens – at the intersection of Content, Process, and Collaboration. The real enabler lies in meeting the need for 3rd platform-enabled, enterprise-grade cloud solutions aimed at the Value Office.High Value, Industry-Specific SolutionsThe Value Office is the core and lifeblood of every business – the set of work and employees chartered solely with creating value for the organization. Creating real solutions to help solve their customers’ toughest business problems. But there is even more opportunity to be had here… enter the cloud.By leveraging cloud technologies, businesses can extend and enrich their existing Value Office capabilities – and that has far-reaching implications, especially when you think about the transformative impact within specific industries like Healthcare, Life Sciences, and Energy and Engineering.Take big pharmaceutical companies for example, who have an extremely long and costly product development lifecycle. By leveraging cloud-based solutions, these organizations can collaborate on Research and Development activities with external development partners and subsequently reduce clinical trial durations.Every additional day that a blockbuster drug is on the market within patent generates $3M in additional revenue.*Enabling TransformationNaturally, the stakes are high. While customers in these industries have domain knowledge, they may lack the necessary infrastructure, content management expertise, or resources to develop solutions in-house. They also may not have a clear path to the cloud or possess the capabilities needed to get there.To succeed in each of these endeavors, companies need to carefully evaluate and select an enterprise content management (ECM) vendor that brings to the table the following: top-grade ECM, industry knowledge, best practices, a broad partner ecosystem, and a flexible deployment model that provides “just as much cloud as they need” based upon where their company sits in its transformation.All of this should be backed by a proven history of trust in infrastructure and cloud deployment. It’s not an either/or scenario, but the combination of these things that will drive real business benefits.And what company does not want to increase its productivity, ensure compliance, fuel innovation, lower costs, and speed up time to value?At EMC, we get this.

Finley as Drew, Carrie St. Louis as Sherrie, Joey Calveri as Stacee Jaxx, Adam Dannheisser as Dennis, Genson Blimline as Lonny, Josephine Rose Roberts as Regina, Cody Scott Lancaster as Franz, Paul Schoeffler as Hertz and Teresa Stanley as Justice. View Comments Star Files Rock of Ages Raise your lighters, because the original Drew is coming back to The Bourbon Room! Constantine Maroulis will return to the cast of Rock of Ages beginning August 4. The Tony nominee will play a 12-week engagement (through October 26) at the Helen Hayes Theatre. Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 18, 2015 Maroulis was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in Rock of Ages when the show opened in 2009. He also starred in the tuner off-Broadway and headlined the national tour. He most recently appeared on Broadway in Jekyll & Hyde. A finalist on the fourth season of American Idol, Maroulis’ other stage credits include Broadway’s The Wedding Singer, off-Broadway’s Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris and the national tour of Rent. Related Shows In a statement spoofing LeBron James’ recent Sports Illustrated essay (how often do you hear us say that?), Maroulis said the show “holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I’m their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me. My relationship with Rock of Ages is bigger than Broadway. I didn’t realize that four years ago. I do now.” Featuring a score of classic rock hits including “Here I Go Again,” “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew, an aspiring rock star who moves to Los Angeles to make his dreams come true. The show celebrated its fifth anniversary in April of this year. Constantine Maroulislast_img read more
