In the late 1980s my parents moved to Spain and my sister and I were born there, but we came back when I was nine.Was that when you first played rugby?I didn’t know what it was until I went to Blackrock College, but I got into it really quickly.

The Point Lonsdale House is a linear-formed beach-house composed of four interlinked pavilions, each defined by its own vaulted roof form and which holds within it the separate functions of the home. The house is shaped to fit the East-West orientation of its site and is aligned to the southern boundary to allow the living spaces to engage with the long northern garden. Each of the pavilion forms is divided to the south by a series of private courtyard gardens and sheltered decks, which provides the house with a complex relationship to a number of external living spaces. Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ben HoskingFormally the house is designed as an island amongst the surrounding coastal landscape and is elevated above and cantilevered slightly out over its ground plane. Over time the native gardens will lap against and surround its perimeter. The slender house presents a monolithic and roughly textured timber elevation to the street while allowing the long northern and more private face of the home to be seen obliquely as it recedes into garden space deep into the site; suggesting patterns of use.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe two separated sleeping zones of the house are linked by a central shared living space which brings all of the occupants of the holiday home together. This central and communal room lifts up spatially to define the shared gathering space of the home. It is entirely and monolithically lined with timber boards, signifying the living space as the social fulcrum and heart of the project. This living space has no apparent deck but instead holds an intimate relationship to the northern gardens and coastal scrub landscape beyond. The timber wall to the western end of this living space, however, opens up entirely as a 4m wide timber pivot wall from the living space, into the north facing the outdoor room.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingIn this way, the living space spills out sideways into an expanded informal space which brings to mind the simplicity of the traditionally rugged and unadorned beach house vernacular that imitates a built tent rather than a refined urban house. A further operable wall opens out to a more private deck between the kitchen and lounge space. A long sliding steel-framed glass door allows this deck to become an extension of the informal lounge space, and thus re-linking the pavilions of the home via a secondary network of connected outdoor rooms.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe capacity for the house to open multiple large apertures between the interlinked pavilions allows for coastal breeze paths to wash through the home, removing the requirement for air-conditioning and mechanical cooling. The windows to the northern façade are each set within small undercrofts of the roof forms to create deepened and passively shaded eaves. These small north-facing undercroft niches establish a living edge to the house. Elevated to seating height above the ground plane they provide opportunities for lazy napping in the sun, reading while also becoming a stage for children to play and to perform from.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Ben HoskingProject gallerySee allShow lessZhengzhou Jianye Football Town Tourist Center / SHUISHISelected ProjectsWuehrer House / Jerome EngelkingSelected Projects Share Landscape: Projects CopyAbout this officeEdition OfficeOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPoint LonsdaleOn InstagramAustraliaPublished on June 06, 2019Cite: “Point Lonsdale House / Edition Office” 06 Jun 2019.

It’s even better when you know that Mackenzie is just six years old.This is charity: water founder Scott Harrison thanking Mackenzie for giving up his sixth birthday as a part of the nonprofit’s September Campaign 2011.It’s personal, engaging, and it’s the boss of the charity saying thank you. That really is impressive.And clearly charity: water has a whole YouTube channel dedicated to these personal thank yous:www.youtube.com/user/charitywaterthanksHow did they create these video thank yous? At first I thought it was some clever video personalisation, like that from Vismail as explained by Michael Kaufmann in 2008. Instead, they made one after another. As part of charity: water’s fifth birthday celebrations, they decided to thank 250 or so donors by video. In addition, a host of volunteers and interns came in to the nonprofit’s offices to make phone calls and send emails to say thank you. It took a week for the volunteer video editors to put them all together.Here is what they did:  108 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. [youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDLO6emIGE0[/youtube]After scanning the code, users can choose the amount they wish to donate, and then confirm the transaction. Onescan takes care of the payment and sends an email to confirm the transaction.Limbcare receives the payment as soon as it has cleared the standard payment gateway.Onescan charges 1.5% on transactions, or 15p for every £10 donated.Ray Edwards MBE, founder of Limbcare, said:“Onescan is great for us. We know that people need to find it easy to donate – if we’ve spoken to them, at an event for example, they want to donate there and then – not have to remember to do it when they get home. So this mobile phone solution from Onescan is perfect.”The campaign on Limbcare’s website has only just gone live so no figures on income are yet available. Advertisementcenter_img Limbcare, the charity that supports amputees and their families, is the first charity to start accepting donations via mobile payments system Onescan.Onescan will let the charity receive donations and payments via many different channels – online, at events or from a leaflet or printed advertisement.To make a donation Limbcare supporters use their mobile phone to scan the Onescan Padlock code which appears on the charity’s website and which will also start appearing on other marketing material including banners, posters and leaflets. The code resembles a QR code.The first time they do this they will be prompted to enter their payment and other personal information. For future payments and donations this step will not be required. The information is automatically encrypted and protected, say Onescan.The benefit to supporters is that they don’t have to remember a password or login details each time they use Onescan to pay or donate.The donation process includes the option to make a donation via Gift Aid. Currently the app accepts single donations but an updated version of the app should include a regular giving option.Anonymous donations are not yet possible, but the next release will “allow the donor to set a privacy flag to ensure their details are kept confidential by the charity”.

Rosalind Franklin University’s Innovation and Research Park Celebrates Ribbon Cutting on First Anniversary

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness TAGS  NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., Feb. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The $50 million Innovation and Research Park on the campus of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science marked its first anniversary with a virtual opening ceremony on Jan. 28, featuring dignitaries and leaders from the government, bioscience industry and economic development sectors. Dr. Wendy Rheault, RFU president and CEO, noted that the opening ceremony was originally planned for March 2020, but “the impact of COVID-19 on our campus, in our region and worldwide rendered that impossible.” “Even though we are still dealing with the ramifications of COVID-19, we felt an appropriate celebration and recognition of our community and partners would be a testament to the resilience of science and importance of discovery at this particular point in history,” Dr. Rheault added. “This significant addition to Chicagoland’s research and bioscience community demonstrates our faith in scientific discovery and its direct impact on patient health.” “The completion of Rosalind Franklin University’s Innovation and Research Park is the type of strategic investment that helps us reach the kind of future our state deserves,” said Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker. “This project demonstrates that innovation is critical to our success as a state, and this past year in particular. We need more bold thinkers and more brave risk-takers to solve our toughest challenges. We need more entrepreneurs and innovators to continue generating new ideas and finding new opportunities.” Pritzker also applauded Dr. Rheault and RFU Executive Vice President for Research Dr. Ronald Kaplan for “their continued leadership and for supporting science and innovation in our state.” Of the 100,000 square feet in the IRP, two-thirds are allocated to RFU research labs and six disease-based centers, while the remaining third is available to healthcare industries and startups. “We designed each of the four floors of the new building to contain both academic and industry laboratories, as well as shared ‘collision space’ to facilitate future conversation and collaboration between researchers and industry,” said Dr. Kaplan. “The placement of RFU discovery science in close proximity to cutting-edge pharmaceutical and medical-device science will provide ideal conditions to hasten the translation of our biomedical discoveries into therapeutics and diagnostics to improve people’s lives.” “The new facility, and the center-based organization, has already had a large impact on the research environment by facilitating new collaborations among scientists and as an attractive factor in recruiting the best young scientists,” said Dr. Jeremy Amiel Rosenkranz, director of RFU’s Brain Science Institute. “This will be further enhanced, and we are very excited, by the arising opportunities to interact with industry partners as they arrive.” The first tenant for the IRP, Inspirotec, Inc., was founded by former Abbott Labs senior scientist Dr. Julian Gordon who worked at King’s College in London in the same lab where RFU’s namesake, Dr. Rosalind Franklin, conducted her groundbreaking research on DNA in the early 1950s. Inspirotec is the only company providing airborne allergen detection either direct to the consumer or through physicians, industrial hygienists, indoor air quality professionals and home resale. It has developed a highly sensitive, patented technology for testing and measuring biological agents in the air, including viruses and specifically SARS-CoV-2. The device, AirAnswersTM, was launched in September 2020. Inspirotec plans to move into its new space in the IRP during April 2021. The Innovation and Research Park was designed to accelerate RFU’s nationally recognized research into treatment and prevention of disease, and to support collaboration among academic and industry scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs. The facility, including its Helix 51 incubator, is strategically located halfway between Chicago and Milwaukee, and provides state-of-the-art laboratories and spaces for faculty and commercial startups, along with small- to mid-size national and international biotech firms. Several new biomedical companies joined Helix 51 during the last quarter of 2020 including Covira Surgical (non-antibiotic anti-infectives), Voyant Diagnostics (COVID and other virus testing) and Quantitative Neural Analysis (tardive dyskinesia). About Rosalind Franklin University Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is committed to serving humanity through the interprofessional education of health and biomedical professionals and the discovery of knowledge dedicated to improving wellness. Founded in Chicago in 1912, RFU embodies the spirit of inquiry and excellence modeled by its namesake Dr. Rosalind Franklin, whose Photo 51 was crucial to solving the structure of DNA. Recognized for its research in areas including neuroscience, brain-related diseases, inherited disorders, diabetes, obesity, and gait and balance, the university encompasses the Chicago Medical School, College of Health Professions, College of Pharmacy, Dr. William M.

Many SFR Investors Face Above-Average Risk of Default

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Market Studies, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago While federal and regional eviction moratoria have been lifesaving for millions of renters and homeowners during a national health crisis and related recession, the same does not necessarily hold true for small-scale landlords who own 10 or fewer single-family rental properties.SFR property owners in 48% of all American counties are at above-average risk of default, according to the latest RealtyTrac Rental Property Risk Report, which measures the relative default risk of single-family rental homes.While the face of the SFR market is changing these days, RealtyTrac points out in its summary that almost 90% of SFR homes remain owned by mom-and-pop investors.It makes sense that when renters are not making payments on time, the landlord might become unable to make loan payments—it’s especially difficult, though, because many of these small-scale investors are highly leveraged based on loan-to-value (LTV) ratio data, according to the RealtyTrac staff.According to their research, the average risk score among the country’s 3,143 counties is 50.2, with 1,514, or 48%, at above-average risk.“The job losses in a handful of severely impacted industries due to the COVID-19 recession have disproportionately affected renters,” said Rick Sharga, RealtyTrac EVP. “Federal, state, and local governments have responded by enacting eviction bans to protect tenants, but in doing so have inadvertently put many landlords at risk. And the longer the eviction bans are in place, the higher the likelihood that these landlords are going to default on their mortgages, declare bankruptcy, or be forced to sell off properties at distressed pricing, which could have a negative impact on local housing markets.”Sharga added that, while it’s completely appropriate that the government has taken steps to protect tenants from eviction during a global pandemic, it’s also completely unrealistic to assume that landlords can bear 100% of the financial burden of missed rent payments.He said that there is a common misperception that most landlords are corporations or institutional investors, while, in fact, most single-family rental landlords “simply don’t have the financial strength to weather this storm.”He adds that “financial failure by these investors has implications for both their tenants and the communities where their rental properties are located.” Many SFR Investors Face Above-Average Risk of Default Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago February 26, 2021 1,160 Views Related Articles Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
