The materials used in the 137 m2 of construction, were selected precisely so that in harmony with the landscape they would unify the concept of “cottage” which is the purpose of this project. We designed a simple and austere technique that would generate both a contrast and a dialogue with the brightness of the exterior space and its surrounding nature, the adobe wall that stands embraced with wooden beams, with the pitched roof give the project lightness; inside, wood dominates on floors and walls giving warmth to the spaces.Save this picture!© Luis GordoaWe paid particular attention to the energy efficiency of the project.

Print This Post Related Articles Missed Payments, Financial Stress Straining Investors & Landlords COVID-19 Housing Trends Landlords mortgage 2020-11-11 Cristin Espinosa The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago More than one-third of landlords have not received 100% of rent payments during September, according to new data released by the Urban Institute and Avail, a property management platform.In an October survey of 1,381 landlords who own rental properties, 35.2% of respondents said they did not receive the full amount of rental payments from tenants during September, while 38.1% were not expecting to receive full rent payments in October. More than three-quarters of respondents stated their September situation was due to tenants who were struggling financially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and either did not or could not make full rent payments.The survey also found 18.6% of landlords reported their vacancy rates have increased since the start of the pandemic. The combination of non-paying tenants and vacant units has created great financial stress on landlords, with 31% of survey respondents admitting they felt more pressure to sell their properties during the pandemic than before the crisis started.However, higher-income landlords and those without a mortgage were under less pressure to sell their properties. More than 47% of landlords with under $50,000 of income reported increased pressure to sell, while just over 20% of landlords with income of $150,000 or more stated they were pressured. And a little less than one-third of landlords with a mortgage said they experienced increased pressure to sell their properties, whereas slightly more than one-quarter of respondents without a mortgage experienced the same stress.Despite the increased vacancy rates, landlords are not rushing to fill empty units, with 35.6% if respondents tightening – 30% of respondents demand higher credit scores and 50% expect higher income relative to monthly rental rates. The survey also found Black and Hispanic landlords were more likely than their white counterparts to intensify the screening process, by a 50% to 35% measurement. But the survey also noted that Black and Hispanic landlords are more likely to own two-to-four-unit rental buildings in lower-income communities where eviction rates are higher.As for the near-future, 37% of landlords feared the remaining months in 2020 will see the continuation of their problems due to the extension of the federal eviction moratorium, while 34.5% cited the expiration of pandemic-related unemployment insurance benefits as the primary source of their dilemma.

News UpdatesNLU-D Succumbed To Delhi Govt Pressure To Introduce 50% Horizontal Reservation : Delhi HC LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK29 Jun 2020 6:30 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court has prima facie observed that the decision of the National Law University-Delhi to introduce 50% horizontal reservation from the academic year 2020-2021 for students who have passed qualifying examination from recognized institutes in the National Capital Territory was taken “in haste without acting in accordance with the NLU Act”.The Court noted that the Vice Chancellor…Your free access to Live Law has expiredTo read the article, get a premium account.Your Subscription Supports Independent JournalismSubscription starts from ₹ 599+GST (For 6 Months)View PlansPremium account gives you:Unlimited access to Live Law Archives, Weekly/Monthly Digest, Exclusive Notifications, Comments.Reading experience of Ad Free Version, Petition Copies, Judgement/Order Copies.Subscribe NowAlready a subscriber?LoginThe Delhi High Court has prima facie observed that the decision of the National Law University-Delhi to introduce 50% horizontal reservation from the academic year 2020-2021 for students who have passed qualifying examination from recognized institutes in the National Capital Territory was taken “in haste without acting in accordance with the NLU Act”.The Court noted that the Vice Chancellor had no power to take such a decision “unilaterally”, side stepping the Governing Council, before which the matter was pending consideration.GNCTD exerted pressure; NLUD succumbedOn July 13, 2019, the Governing Council of the University – comprising the Chief Secretary, NCT of Delhi, Principal Secretary (Finance), Secretary (Higher Education) and the Principal Secretary (Law, Justice and Legislative Affairs) – had taken up the issue of horizontal reservation. Without taking any final call on the matter, the Council constituted a committee comprising Justice N V Ramana, Supreme Court judge, Chief Secretary, NCT Delhi, and Secretary, Higher Education, Government of Delhi and the Registrar, NLU, Delhi to examine the matter. Without waiting for the final decision of the Committee, the decision to introduce horizontal reservation was taken by the Vice Chancellor on January 14, 2020. This, the Court said, was seemingly under the pressure from the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD).The bench comprising Justices Subramonium Prasad and Hima Kohli noted that the State has been exerting pressure on NLU Delhi to provide reservation to the extent of 85 per cent for students of Delhi on the premise that the same was being done in all the State Universities in Delhi.The Court made this observation from the the record of discussions held between the Vice-Chancellor, NLU Delhi with the Secretary GNCTD, Delhi on December 23, 2019, and the letter dated March 6 sent by the Directorate of Higher Education sent to the Vice Chancellor NLU Delhi.”Even the 50% horizontal reservation made by the respondent No.3/NLU, Delhi has not gone down well with the respondent No.1/GNCTD, who is insisting on 85% reservation for students of Delhi”, the Court noted.The Court also noted that GNCTD, which provides funds for NLU D, had been ignoring the repeated demands made by the University for more funds to increase seats and infrastructure for implementation of reservation for OBCs and other weaker sections of the society.To ‘buy peace’ with the GNCTD, the NLUD succumbed to its pressure.”It appears that the respondent No.3/NLU, Delhi succumbed to the pressure that was being constantly exerted by the respondent No.1/GNCTD only to buy peace and without awaiting the recommendations of the Committee”, the Court said.The Court added :”Once the Governing Council had decided to constitute a Committee to look into the procedure that may be followed on the issue of providing reservation for candidates clearing the qualifying examination from institutes situated in Delhi, there was no occasion to side step the Committee and the Vice-Chancellor could not have decided the issue without approaching the Governing Council for appropriate sanctions constituted by the Governing Council.When the Governing Council is the Supreme Body and the Statute vests powers on it to take all policy decisions relating to the University, it is incomprehensible as to how the Council could be side-stepped and the impugned Admission Notification dated 14.01.2020 and the Admission Guidelines be issued providing for horizontal reservation”.The bench said that “there was no tearing hurry” for the University to proceed with horizontal reservation for the present academic year.Grave prejudice will be caused if notification not stayedThe Court stated that grave prejudice will be caused if the notification was not stayed. It noted that the applications for the present year had dwindled to 18,000 from 24,000 of the previous year.”This significant reduction in the number of applications received by the respondent No.3/NLU, Delhi, is a telling comment on the change made in the admission policy for the academic year 2020-21″, it said.Observing that the petitioners have made out a “prima facie” case, the Court stayed the notification and ordered that “Status quo ante as of the previous academic year shall be maintained for making admissions to the BA LL.B (Five Year Programme) and LL.M (One Year Programme) in NLU, Delhi, for the academic year 2020-21” .The Court clarified that its observations are of prima facie view and that the merits of the matter will be decided after detailed hearing.The order was passed in the writ petitions filed by Balwinder Sangwan and Pia Singh, who challenged the University’s decision.Neeraj Kishan Kaul, Senior Advocate with Mr. Nipun Saxena and Mr. Akash Lamba, Advocates and Mr. Nishant Khatri, Advocate appeared for the petitioners.Advocate Sanjay Vashishta appeared for the University and Ramesh Singh, Standing Counsel (Civil) appeared for the GNCTD.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

News story: New advice for travellers visiting the UK, EU or European Economic Area in the event of a no-deal EU Exit
Travellers who intend to use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) must check what the arrangement is with the specific country they are visiting as the card may not be valid. This advice also applies to students studying in the EU.In addition, UK nationals should follow current advice from the government which recommends travellers take out separate travel insurance to cover any healthcare requirements needed in any country within the EU or outside. This is particularly advisable for travellers with a pre-existing or long-term health condition.There is also further guidance for UK nationals living or working in the EU.The new advice encourages citizens to register for access to healthcare in the EU/EEA country they live in, as some residents may need to be a long-term resident or pay social security contributions to access free or discounted healthcare.If a resident is in the process of applying for residency the advice suggests individuals take out separate health insurance.For residents who use the S1 certificate, this may no longer be valid after 29 March 2019. The advice is to check what the latest healthcare arrangements are between the UK and the country British nationals currently live in.Until further agreements are reached between the UK and individual EU member states, the government advises UK citizens to follow this latest guidance to ensure they are fully prepared for any unexpected healthcare requirements overseas.
We recently took a look at the renaissance that the jam scene has been experiencing of late. With many of the elder statesmen in the scene such as Phish, Dead & Company, moe., The String Cheese Incident, The Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, Widespread Panic and more playing at consistently high levels night in and night out, we wanted to dig a little deeper to see which of the young up and comers are poised to one day take a seat at the round table with their jam forefathers.With bands such as TAUK, Twiddle, Dopapod, and The Werks having already eclipsed that “Up and Coming” plateau, we decided to take a look at five current acts who are ready to take it to the next level. Get your radars ready.Pigeons Playing Ping PongOver the past couple years, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has seen a steady ascent to one of the most sought after young acts on the scene. The band has become a staple on the summer festival circuit, and over the past 12 months the band’s rapid growth has seen them sell out prestigious venues like Washington DC’s 9:30 Club, Boulder’s Fox Theatre, and Manhattan’s Gramercy Theatre. Their high-energy electro-funk and contagious performances have garnered a dedicated following of fans who appropriately call themselves “The Flock.” The band will hit the road in early October for a co-headlining tour with Dopapod, and tickets and details can be found on the band’s website.Each May, “Scrambled” Greg (Guitar/Vocals), Jeremy Schon (Guitar/Vocals), Ben Carrey (Bass/Vocals), and Alex Petropulos (Drums/Electronics) host their own festival, Domefest, in Southern Pennsylvania. The flock-centric event sees Pigeons headlining each night with some of the bands they’ve played alongside throughout the year filling out the lineup. Here is a video of the fan favorite “Horizon” from Domefest this past May:AqueousBuffalo-based quartet Aqueous continues to display an expert ability in conjuring up meticulously crafted, well-composed arrangements with soulful lyrics and a dynamic musical range. They do this while maintaining their signature dual-rock guitar onslaught, anthemic choruses, psychedelic synth lines, and a tight, punchy, and always grooving rhythm section that fans consistently rave about.Mike Gantzer (Guitar/Vocals), Dave Loss (Guitar/Keys/Vocals), Evan McPhaden (Bass), and Rob Houk (Drums) are coalescing into one finely tuned unit. Best In Show lives up to its namesake; each track on the four-song EP features a diverse and powerful side of the band’s ever-evolving, emotionally evoking sound. These are some seriously prime, grade A, choice cuts here. For additional info, check Aqueous’ official website.SpaffordSpafford is a 4-piece funk rock band, hailing from Arizona. Made up of Brian Moss (Guitar), Jordan Fairless ( Bass), Red Johnson (Keys), and Nick Tkachyk (Drums), the band needs to be heard to be understood. The core of Spafford’s identity is their special ability to improvise. Jams typically extend way past their normal structure, as the band reaches for unique and different sounds every time they play. Their live performances are filled with non-stop musical adventures rooted in high energy and deep listening by all four members. Building these explorations one piece at a time, Spafford helps take the listeners on a ride that typically ends right in the pocket of a deep groove with a blistering peak.While the band has built a grass roots following in the Southwest, they are looking to bring their special brand of ‘ElectroFunkTherapy’ to audiences across the country. With an upcoming Fall Tour to the Midwest, the band is entering the next phase of their ascent in the jam scene. Get all the info here.The Magic BeansThe Magic Beans have been making big waves in their home state of Colorado for some time now, with their unique genre-blending sound and exciting shows. Since starting to tour just couple of years ago, they’ve caught the eyes and ears of many music lovers nationwide. Their annual Beanstalk Festival is also becoming quite the destination for the scene, growing in size and talent with each passing years. At the core of it all, Beans’ shows are a dance party, with an emphasis on original songwriting and extended segments of improvisation.Scott Hachey (Guitars/Vocals), Chris Duffy (Bass/Vocals), Casey Russell (Keys/Vocals), and Jason Kincaid (Drums) creatively invoke hints of your favorite live acts while managing to come across with a sound that is distinctly their own. The band’s stage chemistry is infectious and very inclusive of the audience, resulting in a close-knit fanbase around the group dubbed, “Team Bean“. Having just signed with Madison House, you can expect big moves coming from the Beans soon. Make sure to check these guys out when they come through your town. Check out more info/tour dates for the Beans here.MungionChicago-based jam outfit Mungion has been turning heads since bursting onto the scene in the spring of last year. With excitement building from their exploratory live outings, Mungion’s steadily growing fan base received the band’s first full-length studio offering, Scary Blankets, which received rave reviews from both fans and media outlets. (Read our review here). The inspiration of their jam scene peers is evident throughout. “Schvingo” and “Hindsight,” built from catchy, strolling bass lines and prog-guitar wailing, both deliver handily, displaying the influences of well-loved acts on the band (and clear influences on the members of Mungion) from Pat Metheny to Frank Zappa to Jimmy Herring and beyond.With every passing show, the quartet, consisting of Justin Reckamp (Guitar/Vocals), Joe Re (Keys/Vocals), Sean Carolan (Bass/Vocals), and Matt Kellen (Drums/Vocals) is honing their unique progressive sound. When you see their live show, it’s very evident that there’s a clear intention to create a set of music that is rich, varied and immersive — not just a collection of tunes, but a cohesive, complex sonic story that keeps people on their toes dancing. Mungion has just began to scratch the surface. They have a new album set for release in early 2017 and will be arriving in a city near you very soon, including a support gig for Moe. in Chicago on Sept. 24th (more info at the band’s official website).Of course, this is by no means a definitive list! Who are your favorite up and comers? Be sure to let us know so we can feature them, too.
