With a patio the house is deferred. The territory is marked with a first scenic barrier. The entrance, intimate and reserved, becomes a special moment with limited access to those who really arrive. The house, with a simple and logic distribution, binds to a circulation space which crosses over it. A spine where all areas hang, sometimes hallway others the area itself.

It will directly help those accessing and sharing information online, whether it is on the Internet or the British Red Cross intranet.BT says that broadband Internet connections will be “a culture change for the British Red Cross”, with a number of independent outposts being connected. For the first time, the charity’s 40,000 volunteers will have access to important information. Previously, information had to be printed and mailed, even if it was urgent information on medical procedures, such as a better resuscitation technique.

Broadband is a necessity for us, and we chose BT for its excellent coverage and our great relationship with the company.”Danny McLaughlin, managing director of Major Business, BT, said: “Some Red Cross sites had limited phone and ISDN connectivity and needed a way to increase efficiency and the communication between its volunteers across the UK. This proposition demonstrates our commitment to delivering innovative and cost effective ICT solutions to mid-sized organisations.”Each British Red Cross site will now have high speed access to the Internet and intranet, as well as internal applications within a manageable cost structure which standard phone and ISDN connectivity could not offer.

Sandara Kelso-Robb, Executive Director of the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland, said that the outcome ensures the Foundation will maintain and potentially expand funding and support for Northern Ireland charities at a time of very difficult and challenging economic circumstances.She added: “Following turmoil in the world of banking there had been fears that the Foundation funding from Lloyds Banking Group would decrease in line with profits. However, the newly negotiated revenue stream will allow the three Foundations to inject funding of around £30 million annually into the UK Voluntary and Community sector.”The Lloyds Foundation in Scotland has refused to accept a new funding formula from Lloyds Banking Group, claiming that the proposed new funding was a bad deal for the Foundation.www.lloydtsbfoundationni.org AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 21 December 2009 | Newscenter_img Lloyds TSB Foundation for N Ireland secures funding  23 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Northern Ireland’s voluntary and community sector has received a major boost with the confirmation that the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland has secured long-term funding.The Foundation has now concluded negotiations with its primary funder, the newly formed and expanded Lloyds Banking Group.Together with sister foundations in England & Wales, and the Channel Islands, it will receive “guaranteed funding” every year for four years from 2010 to 2013, and at a higher level than in 2009.

CA wildfires live updates: New Maria Fire explodes to 8,000 acres overnight

first_imgErin Donalson/iStock(SANTA PAULA, Calif.) — A new wildfire exploded in Southern California overnight, closing schools and forcing over 7,000 residents to evacuate.Wind gusted to 30 mph Friday morning at the site of the quickly-spreading Maria Fire. Coupled with 6 percent humidity, conditions are prime for fire danger.The Maria Fire broke out in Santa Paula in Ventura County shortly after 6 p.m. Thursday and has now grown to over 8,300 acres. The blaze is 0 percent contained.Aaron Lewis’ parents live in the area impacted by the Maria Fire and the family has an orchard there.He’s grateful his parents’ home survived, Lewis told ABC News, but “the fire completely burned through” the family’s property.He said the fire was about 1 mile away from his family’s field Thursday night and there was “zero wind.”But then the winds picked up, and within 10 to 15 minutes, “it was already on top of our property,” he said. “At first it was just kind of creeping along, then the flames grew higher and higher.”“It’s kind of a complete rebuild,” he said.Lewis said a neighbor’s house wasn’t so lucky and was “fully engulfed” within minutes.“It was 300 yards away until fully engulfed in maybe five minutes,” he said. “If someone was actually at that house they would’ve had to run for their lives.”Hundreds of firefighters, who have been working around the clock, swarmed the scene.“They said they were on their eighth day straight,” Lewis said. “They did a fantastic job of making sure everyone was safe.”While critical fire weather conditions remain in Southern California Friday, with gusts reaching 35 mph, the winds will not be nearly as strong as they were on Wednesday and Thursday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Effect of Antarctic solar radiation on sewage bacteria viability

first_imgThe majority of coastal Antarctic research stations discard untreated sewage waste into the near-shore marine environment. However, Antarctic solar conditions are unique, with ozone depletion increasing the proportion of potentially damaging ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation reaching the marine environment. This study assessed the influence of Antarctic solar radiation on the viability of Escherichia coli and sewage microorganisms at Rothera Research Station, Adelaide Island, Antarctic Peninsula. Cell viability decreased with increased exposure time and with exposure to shorter wavelengths of solar radiation. Cell survival also declined with decreasing cloud cover, solar zenith angle and ozone column depth. However, particulates in sewage increased the persistence of viable bacteria. Ultraviolet radiation doses over Rothera Point were highest during the austral summer. During this time, solar radiation may act to partially reduce the number of viable sewage-derived microorganisms in the surface seawater around Antarctic outfalls. Nevertheless, this effect is not reliable and every effort should be made to fully treat sewage before release into the Antarctic marine environment.last_img read more

Fees ban is part of official drive to reduce size of lettings industry, claims TPFG

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Fees ban is part of official drive to reduce size of lettings industry, claims TPFG previous nextAgencies & PeopleFees ban is part of official drive to reduce size of lettings industry, claims TPFGUnusual claim is made by company’s CEO of The Property Franchise Group in its final results for 2018 published yesterday.Nigel Lewis10th April 20191 Comment3,170 Views One of the UK’s leading franchised letting agency groups has claimed that the tenant fees ban is part of a plan to eliminate smaller agencies from the market and encourage the larger, more corporate players, as well as the official aim of introducing greater ‘transparency and fairness’.The Property Franchise Group (TPFG) says the lettings fee ban is part of a wider attempt by government to encourage a “smaller number of stronger, more professional and better regulated agents”.“The short-term effect will be to drive some of our competitors out of business as they struggle to deal with extra regulatory hurdles such as mandatory Client Money Protection or face a significant loss of income because their business model has been predicated towards charging excessive tenant fees,” says TPFG’s CEO Ian Wilson.“As an experienced franchisor we have a track record of dealing with regulatory hurdles on behalf of our franchisees and we see opportunities to win increased market share over the next two years.”The comments are made within the company’s final results published yesterday, which also highlight the extreme challenges faced by its lettings franchisees.These include the number of buy-to-let mortgages reducing from a peak of 190,000 in 2008 to just 60,000 last year, more landlords selling up or self-managing their properties and ever lengthening tenancies.TPFG says tenancies have reached an average of 30 months across its six branded businesses. These are Martin & Co, Ewemove, CJ Hole, Parkers, Ellis & Co and Whitegates.Ian Wilson lettings The Property Franchise Group TPFG April 10, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 10th April 2019 at 10:26 amThis is exactly what I’ve been saying for years.The so-called Tories, who fraudulently claim to be all for supporting small businesses, have done everything they can to force out smaller, single branch letting and estate agents by the burden of pensions, CMP, more regulation etc, even if the agency has never received a complaint in its history.Stupidly though, they are also forcing out landlords.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
