House for a Buddhist – Monchique. In the hills of Monchique, between ups and downs, taking advantage of an extraordinary situation is this single-storey house. Set in a southern slope, with access by small and winding tar road, lies over one of several existing terraces that tear the steep slope into small cultivable levels. It is in this scenario that one arrives to contemplate all the open view towards the Algarve coast and sea. The small hills are diluted as the distance increases and the entire path of the sun is visible from the edge of the pool.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFrom the curve of the road one can access the house through a funnel ramp that grabs the main and defining lines of the project: the line of the concrete support wall, similar to the stone terraces; and the line of the house, also made of concrete, which stands straight between the terraces. Beyond the main volume is a small house, further away, under a cork oak tree, with independent access and clinging to the concrete wall. It is intended for the special guest, the master, who appreciates silence, meditation, and transcendental experience.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe project is then defined by the landscape, the relationship between the two built volumes, the endless pool that mirrors everything into the various spaces that make up the house. The rest is simple, transparent materiality, with the concrete reproducing the fossilized woods in their walls, the finest aluminum possible, and the softened or diced granite stone that goes in and out the house, playing with the confines of things. If Yoga is the architecture of peace, then here we have everything to meditate on this teaching.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessHow Will Future Generations Respond to Modern-Day Memorial Architecture?ArticlesCity Dreamers Documentary Highlights Four Women Architects Who Rethought the CityArchitecture News Share House in Monchique / Pereira Miguel Arquitectos ArchDaily Manufacturers: Fabri, Gryrofocus, Jofebar, Waterworks by Sanibano CopyAbout this officePereira Miguel ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesResidential ArchitectureMonchiquePortugalPublished on January 01, 2020Cite: “House in Monchique / Pereira Miguel Arquitectos” 01 Jan 2020.

Understanding Default Risk

UFA notes that under current economic conditions, investors and lenders should expect defaults on loans currently being originated to be 14% higher than the average of similar loans originated in the 1990s, due solely to the local and national economic environment.“Although lower mortgage rates are providing a boost to the housing market, on balance monetary policy metrics and our housing forecasts are weaker this quarter,” said Dennis Capozza, Professor Emeritus of Finance at the University of Michigan and founding member of UFA. “In most regions the UFA forecasts see real price declines within two years. As a result the UFA Default Risk Index continues to creep higher.”Black Knight data recently reported that mortgage delinquencies dropped to 3.47% as of April, the lowest point on record, and Black Knight noted that the 5.51% month-over-month decline between April and March was the strongest single-month April improvement Black Knight has seen.Serious delinquencies fell to a 12-year record low as well, down to 474,000, marking a 124,000 year-over-year decline. Despite the declines, foreclosure starts edged up in April month-over-month by 4.28%, putting the total at 41,400. Year-over-year, however, foreclosure starts declined by 16.02%.CoreLogic recently reported similar trends in delinquency. According to CoreLogic’s latest Loan Performance Insights report, the amount of mortgages that were delinquent more than 30 days decreased slightly year-over-year to 4%.The report states the nation’s overall delinquency rate has fallen on a year-over-year basis for the past 14 consecutive months. CoreLogic stated that the decreases were attributable to the strength of loan vintages in the years since the residential lending market recovered following the housing crisis.Eleven core-based statistical areas/metros experienced increases in serious delinquency rates, most of them located on the East Coast, according to CoreLogic’s report.”We are on track to test generational lows as delinquency rates hit their lowest point in almost two decades. Given the economic outlook, we are likely to see more declines over the balance of this year. Reflective of the drop in delinquency rates, no state experienced a year-over-year increase in its foreclosure inventory rate so far in 2019,” said Frank Martell, CoreLogic’s President and CEO.center_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: $19.1B Disaster Relief Bill Stalls in House Next: The Week Ahead: Watching Affordability and Growth Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Getting the record straight

first_img The #MeToo surge against sexual abuse provides opportunities for pivotal societal change, but challenges too Ronan Farrow won a Pulitzer Prize on Tuesday for his reporting in The New Yorker about the many sexual assault claims made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Four days earlier, Italian director and actor Asia Argento, who had shared her own nightmare with Weinstein for the story, chastised Farrow for his “simplification.”Farrow, she said, hadn’t fully grasped the complicated nuance of her interactions with the powerful Weinstein in 1997 when she was 21, and how what she said were years of his stalking, manipulation, and “ultimate domination” of her had taken hold of her life and made her fear for her career and her safety.“I tried to explain this,” Argento told a crowd in Harvard Hall Friday. And while she acknowledged that Farrow couldn’t devote five pages to her story, she called his summary for the article “a simplification that ruined my life.” Related The women’s revolt: Why now, and where to Argento said her willingness to come forward against Weinstein, combined with what she sees as Farrow’s mischaracterization, exposed her to criticism and harassment. In the months since the story first ran, Argento said she has been victimized again on social media and in the Italian press. The director explained that misogyny is still deeply ingrained in Italian culture and that women there who challenge men are regularly blamed, shamed, and disbelieved. When The New Yorker story ran, many critics in the Italian media questioned why she didn’t speak up sooner, go directly to the police, or say “no” more forcefully.“It was worse than the rape, the re-victimization,” said Argento.Argento said she has received support from other women and feminist groups in Italy, and shared her story with others who suffered similar assaults. “This is what saved me,” she said.She also said she has spoken to Farrow about his work, and what she views as its shortcomings.“It’s hard for him to accept that this summarization, this simplification ruined my life. He told me, ‘I am sorry that you feel this way.’ Well, it’s not that I feel this way; it’s what’s written that is wrong.”A lawsuit that that might challenge his reporting “would take away from what he is trying to do,” said Argento, who is considering writing a book about her experience that would “explain the simplification.” Yet the director still expressed support for Farrow and his efforts. “I want him to expose other things … bless him. Mad props to Ronan Farrow.”,In the aftermath of the article, the director, who is a mother of two and a longtime advocate for the rights of women, minorities, and members of the LBGTQ community, has become a leading voice in the #MeToo movement. Before arriving at Harvard she took part in the Women in the World Summit on April 12 in New York City. Last month, she addressed the European Parliament in Brussels ahead of International Women’s Day.At Harvard, she continued to call for change in how women are treated. Power structures that enable abusers must be dismantled, said Argento, and sexual predators who commit crimes should be sent to jail, not to a spa, as she said Weinstein was, to be “cured for sex addiction” in Arizona.“He belongs in jail.”In the months since stories broke in The New York Times and The New Yorker, dozens of women have come forward with allegations against Weinstein, ranging from rape to sexual harassment, and criminal investigations into several complaints are ongoing.Argento also wants to see change in her native country. More women need to be in positions of power in Italy, she said, instead of men like former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who is better known for corruption allegations, sexual scandals, and objectifying women than for reform. In addition, harmful laws, such as the six-month statute of limitations for sex crimes, need to be changed, she said.Despite the backlash at home, the director said she refuses to remain silent, and she encouraged women who may be suffering in silence to share their experiences.“I have to be a part of this movement,” said Argento, “especially in Italy where the situation is so difficult, and to bring the word outside. Because talking to you gives me strength to continue, and I hope you will do the same after this — and if you are suffering the same, to share it. This movement, I can’t see it stopping … I see it becoming bigger and bigger.”Alex Moore, a postdoctoral fellow in Harvard’s history department who helped organize the event, captured Argento’s hope in his opening remarks. Quoting the American cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead, Moore told the crowd,  “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and committed people can change the world.”Argento’s talk was sponsored by sponsored by the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard, the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School, the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response at Harvard, One Queer Harvard, and by the Committee on Degrees in Studies of Women, Gender and Sexuality.last_img read more

Request access to Defense Manpower Database by February 1st

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Later this year, the Department of Defense’s revisions to the Military Lending Act (“MLA”) will take effect. As we get closer to the effective date of October 3rd be sure to stay tuned to The Works Blog. We’ll be going into much more detail about what these changes will mean for your credit union. However, due to an impending deadline related to MLA compliance we need to take a moment to touch on it now.Under the MLA, covered members and their dependents are entitled to certain protections. For example, a covered member may not be charged a Military Annual Percentage Rate (“MAPR”) in excess of 36% on certain consumer credit transactions. The MAPR is inclusive of not only interest, but also: application fees, fees for credit insurance, etc.Currently, to determine a borrower’s eligibility for MLA relief your cooperative simply asks the member to sign a Covered Borrower Identification Statement. You may continue to use this method until October 3rd. However, for safe harbor compliance after the effective date your credit union must use one of the following new identification methods: continue reading »last_img read more
