Design of a stacked house‘Jubako house’is based on our concerning on the relationship between the house and surrounding neighborhood. Jubako: Japanese food stacked boxes, is a set of food containers which can be stacked to sort various kinds of food into each layer. We conceptualized Jubako to create space from series of boundary where perimeter of internal space can be linked with external space. Therefore, we carefully thought about dimension of the building, choices of material and sizes of openings. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!Plan – sectionSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraJubako house is a three-storey house for 3 residents. A young couple’s room is on the 1st floor and a parent’room is on the 3rd floor. On the 2nd floor, there are living, dining and kitchen so it is easy for the residents to access from their own floor. We arranged vertical circulation: stairs and elevator, and toilets on the west side of each floor. It is not only beneficial for arranging plumbing system, but it also prevents the interior space exposing to the sunlight in the daytime.Save this picture!© Taku HataSave this picture!Detail sectionSave this picture!© Taku HataOther utilities such as bathroom, laundry space and studio area are on the 1st floor. Structure of Jubako house can be divided into two parts: RC structure on 1st floor and wooden structure on 2nd and 3rd floor covered by galvanized steel sheets. RC structure was designed to be the main structure for the 1st floor and a cantilever parking space. In order to balance of weight in structure, we used wooden structure on the 2nd and the 3rd floor. To create opening on the 2nd floor we designed a setback wall with opening height of 1.2 meters behind RC parapet height of 1.8 meters. The height of parapet is higher than the height of the opening; therefore, it can prevent the residents from interfering with the outside. As a result, this opening does not need any blind or curtain, so perimeter of interior space can be seen continually to the RC parapet. Moreover, this parapet behaves like a reflector of weather conditions where we can see shadow on sunny day or spots of raindrops on it.Save this picture!© Taku HataTraditionally, when we discussed about ‘proportion’ of architecture, two issues were usually mentioned. First, the effect of the distance between an observer and a building made a roof or roof decoration object looked smaller than its actual size. In order to make the object look as big as the actual size, it is necessary to draw larger drawing than its correct proportion on the architectural drawing. Secondly, the portion from the middle of the roof to the top of the roof became blind spot when looking from the ground level. In this case, height of the roof would be raised up on the drawing. These two proportion issues are based on human perspective. This is why, when you look at the drawings of temples, roofs particularly are drawn with unbalanced proportion. In the same way, the stacked house‘Jubako house’also has openings where they could not be seen because of the parapet. We also concerned about choices of finishing and rhythm of joints intended to make the building in harmony with the environment.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraNowadays, the concrete issue like ‘proportion’ has been less concerned than in the past. More conceptual issues such as environment and sociality have become major topics in architectural professions. However, as long as we, architects, create architecture. Such architecture will physically exist throughout the time to present the idea behind.Save this picture!© Taku HataProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: Architectural Design of International Finance Forum (IFF) Permane…Call for SubmissionsUrban Hamlet / Chiasmus PartnersSelected Projects Share “COPY” “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/915808/jubako-house-meguro-architecture-laboratory Clipboard Jubako House / Meguro Architecture Laboratory Jubako House / Meguro Architecture LaboratorySave this projectSaveJubako House / Meguro Architecture Laboratory Japan Structural Engineering: 2017 Houses Photographs:  Koichi Torimura, Taku Hata Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Toto, A&A, Acor, Advan Co., Ltd., Advan Co., Ltd., Cucina, Cucina, IGKOGYO CORPORATION, IGKOGYO CORPORATION, IOC Flooring, TAKASAGO STEEL CO.,LTD., TAKASAGO STEEL CO.,LTD.

The neighbourhoods of the Asinción of yesteryear, traditional and almost timeless, are being reached by the impulse of real estate development that day after day seeks to provide options to the growing urban population. Many times it happens that the hurried venture condemns architecture to a second -or third-level of importance, giving priority to “practicality” and prejudices of insecurity that are very common in the country, which does not serve the imaginary of today’s society well. We wanted this not to be the case. The situation presented a house of approximately 40 years of age and in quite deteriorated conditions that was to be reincorporated to the supply of real estate. It was already in the process of demolition, with no architectural project to follow. The urgency of time led us to make a quick diagnosis of the situation and to act with the same inertia, while developing a parallel idea that could mean – at least something – for the city.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!Ground FloorSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezIn addition to modifying the spatiality according to the new requirements of the client and the general public (a living room, a dining room, three bedrooms, service areas, etc. etc. conditions without which architects would not have this type of work), the project offered the potential to improve the immediate environment, injecting some new air into a neighbourhood forgotten in time, but with a great future ahead. A corner made up of the intersection of two streets, a privileged location for having more than one facade, was the setting for the implementation of this project that seeks to provide shelter, protection and warmth for a new home, a new nest that would return to the useful cycle of housing in Asunción. In an effort to find unity in the fragmented and chaotic urban environment from a constructive point of view, the proposal consisted of generating a ceramic continuum through thin perforated envelopes, which, added to the reddish roof, could provoke the senses of those who travel through the place, allegorically configuring a hornero nest, a typical bird of the region of South America.Save this picture!© Leonardo MéndezSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Leonardo MéndezThe ceramic brick, widely used in Paraguay for its economy, was summoned once again as the protagonist of the intervention, where masons, blacksmiths and carpenters, good craftsmen of patient and skilled workforce, gathered in solidarity and were capable of transforming matter into space and providing it with unusual and interesting qualities for the construction of the collective repertoire that characterizes contemporary Paraguayan architecture, where interventions become true experimentation processes through tests, verifications and adjustments until the expected results are achieved. Once the work was finished, there was nothing left but to let the sun, a special guest of architecture, to penetrate the spaces and to render the seasons of the year, offering the family a festival of lights and shadows that accompany them through their daily experience.Save this picture!© Alejandro PatiñoProject gallerySee allShow less“The Goal Is to Create an Immortal Building”: In Conversation with Boris BernaskoniInterviewsIppolito Pestellini Laparelli to Curate the Russian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale …Architecture News Share Projects “COPY” “COPY” CopyAbout this officeOMCM arquitectosOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationAsunciónParaguayPublished on December 16, 2019Cite: “Hornero Roga House / OMCM arquitectos” [Casa Hornero Roga / OMCM arquitectos] 16 Dec 2019.

Mortgage Bank Profits Stumble in Q3 Despite Production Volume Increase

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Mortgage Bank Profits Stumble in Q3 Despite Production Volume Increase Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Mortgage Bankers Association Profits Purchase Loans Secondary Market 2014-12-04 Tory Barringer Mortgage banking profits hit another stumbling block in the third quarter, sinking slightly as a decline in secondary market income offset rising production numbers.Home lenders took in an average profit of $897 on each loan they originated over Q3, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) said Thursday. That average was down from $954 in the second quarter but still a vast improvement from an average per-loan loss of $194 in the first quarter.”Average company production volume was up in the third quarter, which resulted in a nominal decrease in per-loan production expenses,” said Marina Walsh, VP of industry analysis for MBA. “Nonetheless, production profits were slightly down because of a decrease in secondary marketing income.”According to the group, average production volume came to $437 million per company last quarter, up from $378 million the prior period. By count, lenders average 1,901 new mortgages per company compared to 1,676 in Q2.At the same time, secondary marketing income for the quarter was 261 basis points, a decline from 270 basis points the previous quarter.The net cost to originate a mortgage was $5,038 per loan, a decrease from $5,074 in Q2, MBA reported. That total includes all production operating expenses and commissions with the exception of fee income.The average loan balance for first mortgages in the quarter was $231,914, up more than $6,000 from the last survey and a new record high.Among other findings, MBA reported a small drop in purchase loan origination share, which was 72 percent by dollar volume compared to 74 percent in Q2. For the industry as a whole, the association estimates purchase loans accounted for 62 percent of total originations in Q3.Meanwhile, the share of high-cost first mortgage originations continued to increase, rising to a survey high of 9.4 percent as lenders loosen standards on jumbo products.Including all business lines, 83 percent of the nearly 350 companies in the study posted pre-tax financial profits last quarter, up from 81 percent in Q2.

Four local teens excel at Boys State

first_img By The Penny Hoarder Next UpAlthough they took advantage of different opportunities, the young men said their experiences were rewarding and having attended has enriched their lives.Davon Elder will be a senior at Goshen High School in the fall. His desire to attend Boys State stemmed from his interest in politics and also from a desire to develop his leadership skills.“What impressed me most about Boys State was that everybody was so serious about what we were doing,” he said. “Everybody seemed like they wanted to get something out of it, not just be there.” Elder’s future plans include enrolling in Troy University’s pre-engineering program and then transferring to another university to complete his degree.Josh Starling, a rising Pike Liberal Arts senior, said that his interest in attending Boys State was directed more toward learning how government works than in the political aspect of the process.“I’m more interested in history than in politics,” Starling said. “I really wasn’t interested in running for an office. But I was a member of the Constitutional Convention and we wrote a new constitution for the state. That was very interesting.”The Limbaugh Constitutional Convention members had to take a hard look at Alabama’s Constitution and then improve on it.“We made the Constitution shorter and we added home rule,” Starling said. “A lot of times there’s a bill that only affects one county. We thought that the counties needed to have more power. Another change to the Constitution was that we lowered the voting age to 17. That’s the age about most of us there and we thought that young people needed more say in government. We also made it a county’s decision whether it is wet or dry.”Starling said he met many new friends and enjoyed the entire Boys State experience. However, the motivational speakers and what they had to say made a lasting impression on him.“They talked a lot about following your dreams and working hard to make them happen,” he said. “They really inspired me to do that.”Starling said his own dream is to attend medical school and become a doctor. And that dream will begin at Troy University.Zachary Pearce was honored to have been invited to attend Boys State and he will be a better leader and a more knowledgeable civics student during his senior year at Pike Liberal Arts because of the experience.“I’m not too interested in politics but I’m interested in government and how it’s run,” he said.For that reason, Pearce said he decided to run for city clerk of Harper City.“I like to write and I take good notes so city clerk seemed like an interesting position,” he said. “I was responsible for keeping notes for the mayor and recording everything that has to be kept regarding the workings of the city.”As city clerk, Pearce’s responsibilities included recording court procedures and the city council meetings with the mayor and five council members.“At a council meeting, it was bought up that the police chief wasn’t doing his job and should be impeached,” Pearce said. “But the council voted to give him a formal warning, and, if any more complaints were made against him, he would be gone.”Harper had been devastated by a tornado and the council had to deal with emergency situations.“We lost one-seventh of our city and had only $20 million to work with,” Pearce said. “Every single cent of it had to be designated to worthwhile causes. The council had to enact laws and ordinances that would govern the city during the time of emergency and develop a plan for rebuilding the city. It was a real challenge.”Pearce plans to attend the University of Alabama and major in computer science.Thomas Graning will be a senior at Charles Henderson High School in the fall and, at this point, he is keeping his options open as to his future plans.However, Graning viewed Boys State as an important stepping stone along whatever path he chooses.“I wanted to attend Boys State because of the opportunities to meet new people and learn more about our government and how it operates,” Graning said. “Boys State was a great experience because it also helped me develop my leadership and citizenship skills.”Graning was appointed the governor’s press secretary and was in charge of all written and visual releases of the state programs and for the releases regarding the 10-year plans for each of the departments of state government.“Each of the state’s departments was to find ways to make improvements,” Graning said. “Each department provided me with their slides and written information. I then worked on a PowerPoint presentation for the entire state. I organized their information, formatted it and made it flow.”The presentation was presented to a select group of government officials.Graning said he had developed presentations but not been responsible for putting together visual and written information from different groups of people.“It was a real learning experience,” he said.A press conference that had been scheduled was canceled so Graning didn’t have an opportunity to relay information to the public.However, his hard work and dedication didn’t go unnoticed. He was recognized at the state’s most outstanding elected or appointed official. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Four Pike County young men returned Saturday from the Alabama American Legion Boys State held at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa from May 29 until June 4.Devon Elder, Josh Starling, Zachary Pearce and Thomas Graning were selected to attend Boys State by American Legion Post 70 in Troy.The purpose of Boys State is to teach young men to understand and appreciate the principles involved in the successful management of a democratic society. By Jaine Treadwell Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Email the author Latest Storiescenter_img Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Elder was anxious to participate in government and ran for and was elected to the city of Odom’s House of Representatives.“Being a representative, I learned a lot about parliamentary procedure and what it’s like when the House of Representatives debates a bill and what all it takes to get a bill passed,” Elder said. “One bill that was passed was about teachers being ranked on performance. One that didn’t pass was giving handicapped stickers to pregnant women.”Elder said that sometimes representatives would add amendments to bills and make the process drag on before the bill would eventually pass or fail.“I learned a lot at Boys State,” he said. “It gave me more courage to speak before people and made me aware that I should listen to politicians to make sure that I know what their platforms are so I can make good decisions when voting.” Four local teens excel at Boys State Sponsored Content Published 7:28 am Wednesday, June 8, 2011 The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… You Might Like Troy council OKs deal for new industry The City of Troy and the Troy Industrial Development Board have signed the necessary documents to bring a new industry… read more Print Article Around the WebDoctor: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Health VideosIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

An interhemispheric study of the ground magnetic and ionospheric electric fields during the substorm growth phase and expansion phase onset

first_imgHF radar data during equinoctial, small IMF By conditions have enabled the substorm growth phase to be studied in both hemispheres. This has revealed highly conjugate behavior during the substorm growth phase. The characteristic equatorward progression of the radar backscatter in both hemispheres is well matched by a calculation of the position of the equatorward boundary of the radar backscatter, based on an estimate of the reconnection rate at the magnetopause and the relationship between the cross polar cap potential and the change in polar cap area. Coincident radar backscatter and DMSP precipitation measurements suggest that there is a close relationship between the location of the radar backscatter and structured nightside precipitation. This nightside relationship appears to be analogous to the close relationship between radar backscatter and the targets provided by precipitation at the cusps on the dayside. The high degree of conjugacy during the growth phase mirrors the high degree of conjugacy known to exist between the substorm electrojets. However, in detail, and during the expansion phase, there are significant non-conjugacies displayed in, e.g., the degree of HF absorption in the two hemispheres. This nonconjugacy appears similar to that recently observed in interhemispheric optical data.last_img read more

US Pacific Fleet to Put Black Box Locator into MH370 Search Area

first_img View post tag: fleet US Pacific Fleet to Put Black Box Locator into MH370 Search Area U.S. NAVY SEARCH EQUIPMENT BEING SENT TO HELP LOCATE THE MH 370 FLIGHT DATAThe U.S. Navy is continuing efforts to search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. As a precautionary measure in case a debris field is located, U.S. Pacific Command has ordered U.S. Pacific Fleet to move a black box locator into the region today, March 24. View post tag: Black If a debris field is confirmed, the Navy’s Towed Pinger Locator 25 will add a significant advantage in locating the missing Malaysian aircraft’s black box.The TPL-25 Towed Pinger Locator System is able to locate black boxes on downed Navy and commercial aircraft down to a maximum depth of 20,000 feet anywhere in the world. Commercial aircraft pingers are mounted directly on the flight recorder, the recovery of which is critical to an accident investigation.The Pinger Locator is towed behind a vessel at slow speeds, generally 1-5 knots, depending on the depth. The tow array carries a passive listening device for detecting pingers that automatically transmit an acoustic pulse.“In the event a debris field is located, we’re moving some specialized locator equipment into the area. The Towed Pinger Locator has some highly sensitive listening capability so that if the wreck site is located, we can hear the black box pinger down to a depth of about 20,000 feet,” said Cmdr. Chris Budde, U.S. Seventh Fleet Operations Officer.“This movement is simply a prudent effort to preposition equipment and trained personnel closer to the search area so that if debris is found we will be able to respond as quickly as possible since the battery life of the black box’s pinger is limited,” said Budde.If found, the acoustic signal of the pinger is transmitted up the cable and is presented audibly, and can be output to either an oscilloscope or a signal processing computer. The operator monitors the greatest signal strength and records the navigation coordinates. This procedure is repeated on multiple track lines until the final position is triangulated.The system consists of the tow fish, tow cable, winch, hydraulic power unit, generator, and topside control console.Most pingers transmit every second at 37.5 kHz, although the TPL can detect any pinger transmitting between 3.5 kHz and 50 kHz at any repetition rate.[mappress]Press Release, March 24, 2014, Image: US Navy March 24, 2014 View post tag: Naval View post tag: box View post tag: Defence View post tag: Defense Back to overview,Home naval-today US Pacific Fleet to Put Black Box Locator into MH370 Search Area View post tag: Area View post tag: put View post tag: US Share this article View post tag: Pacific View post tag: Navy View post tag: search View post tag: MH370 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Locatorlast_img read more

Congressional Candidate Richard Moss MD Explains Why He Is Running For Indiana’s 8th District.

first_imgCongressional Candidate Richard Moss MD Explains Why He Is Running For Indiana’s 8th District.I am pleased to have the opportunity to introduce myself to the readers of the Evansville Courier-Press at this critical time.  I am seeking the nomination for Congress for the 8th Congressional district in the May 3, 2016 Republican primary.Like many of you reading this and millions of Americans across the land, I am deeply concerned that Republican leadership in Washington has strayed from the voters that sent them there.  One cannot avoid the obvious reality that Republican primary voters over the last six months have rejected the preferred candidates of the “Republican Establishment” beginning with Jeb Bush, but then as well Chris Christy, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich, who stays in the race despite having no mathematical path to the nomination. Instead, they have settled on two “outsiders,” Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.  It reflects the wave of frustration and discontent that I and millions of others feel not just with the federal government but specifically with our party, the Republican Party in Washington DC.We Republican grassroots activists, the conservative base, the American people, delivered unto the Republican Party an historic landslide wave election victory in 2014, a stunning repudiation of President Barack Obama and his policies.  We took both houses of Congress and overwhelming majorities of governors and state legislatures. We sent our representatives to Washington to do a job: to stop Obama from doing any more damage to the country.  We did not send them there to capitulate. But on too many major issues, capitulate is exactly what they have done. On the debt, spending, “Cromnibus,” Obamacare, Amnesty, the EPA, Import-Export, Fast Track, Planned Parenthood, and the Iran Nuclear deal, Republicans in Washington have given President Obama all that he has asked for.  Congressman Larry Bucshon has gone along with much of this.We have, in effect, two liberal parties running the country.  We have a hard left Marxist Democrat Party and a big government, big spending liberal progressive Republican Party.  The trajectory is all to the left: more debt, more government, more socialism, more tyranny.  The nation will not sustain this.I hold that the Republican Party must be the vehicle through which we save the nation.  But it must be a new, revitalized Republican Party, a party of as Ronald Reagan called for “of bold colors not pale pastels.”  We must have a credible, passionate, and principled conservative party if we are to undo the damage of the Obama years and restore our nation to greatness.I present myself as your conservative alternative in this race. I will stand for liberty, limited government, balanced budgets, the rule of law, and American sovereignty.  I will defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, including religious liberty, the 2nd amendment, state’s rights, and the tenth amendment. I believe in the free enterprise system, term limits, and family values.  I would oppose amnesty and would build a wall and protect the rights of American citizens and American workers. I would stop the EPA and its war on fossil fuels, our economy, and tens of thousands of jobs. I would rebuild our military. I refer to this as my legislative agenda for Indiana’s 8th Congressional district, the state, and the nation.  It is available in more detail on my website rmoss4congress.comBy way of background let me to share the following.  I am a board certified specialist in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (Ear Nose and Throat).  I earned my undergraduate degree in Biology at Indiana University and completed my Doctor of Medicine degree at the I.U. School of Medicine in Indianapolis. I have been in private practice since 1991 with offices in Jasper and Washington for over 20 years.Between 1987 and 1990, I traveled extensively throughout Asia, serving as a visiting surgeon on a voluntary basis at major medical centers in Thailand, Nepal, India, and Bangladesh. Although I received little or no compensation during these three years, I consider them among the most rewarding periods of my life.I have been a conservative columnist, radio talk show host, maintain a conservative blog (exodusmd.com) and recently authored a memoir about my mother (Matilda’s Triumph), which chronicles her struggles raising her five children as a single parent in the Bronx.  I founded and owned the “Bronx Bagel,” a bagel shop and deli in JasperI have been happily married to Supit Moss for 26 years.  We are proud parents of four children, Arielle (23), Noah (21), Adina (13), and Isaiah (12). Arielle is a recent graduate of I.U. Bloomington and a Fulbright Scholar teaching in Morocco where she now resides. Noah is currently studying Business Management at I.U. Bloomington. Adina and Isaiah attend Jasper Middle School. We are members of the Temple Adath B’nai Israel (a synagogue) in Evansville.I seek office because of profound concerns over the direction of the country and the behavior of the federal government. I feel that both parties have failed the American people. Indiana’s 8th Congressional district deserves a strong new conservative voice in Washington. I believe that conservative leadership in the Republican Party is required if we are to build a better future for ourselves, our children, and future generations.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
