first_img Pending sales of previously owned US homes rose to a four-month high in August, implying the housing market was regaining some stability after recent steep declines following the end of a home-buyer tax credit.Another report yesterday showed new orders received by domestic factories fell 0.5 per cent in August as demand for transportation equipment fell sharply. Analysts had forecast a drop of 0.4 per cent in August.However, excluding the transportation segment, factory orders rose 0.9 per cent.The data offered few fresh clues on whether the Federal Reserve would embark on a new round of monetary policy easing next month, as widely anticipated by financial markets.“Sales have stabilised at very, very low levels after the expiration of the federal tax credits. At these low levels, you could see some good percentage increases in sales, but it doesn’t show any sustainable uptrend in housing conditions,” said Ryan Wang, an economist at HSBC Securities in New York.The National Association of Realtors said its Pending Home Sales Index, based on contracts signed in August, increased 4.3 per cent to 82.3 from July. Economists polled by Reuters forecast the index, which leads existing home sales by a month or two, rising three per cent in August from July. Compared to August last year, pending home sales were down 20.1 per cent.The group’s chief economist, Lawrence Yun, said the latest data are consistent with a gradual improvement in home sales in upcoming months.“Attractive affordability conditions from very low mortgage interest rates appear to be bringing buyers back to the market,” he said in a statement.“However, the pace of a home sales recovery still depends more on job creation and an accompanying rise in consumer confidence.” Monday 4 October 2010 8:22 pm Share US data shows housing uptick Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comBill Gates reportedly hoped Jeffrey Epstein would help him win a Nobelnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.com Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Elder Fu Xianwei, chairperson of the National Committee of Three-Self Patriotic Movement of the Protestant Church in China and board chairperson of Nanjing Union Theological Seminary, passed away in Shanghai, China, on Aug. 20, aged 74.Fu’s deep conviction and productive service to the Lord was a powerful encouragement to Christians in China. His immensely hardworking for the cause of the Church in China with consistent adherence to the Three-Self principle was a role model and support for his fellow colleagues. The ardent love and care for the state and the church over the decades of his leadership has been exemplified through his commitment to the reconstruction of theological thinking and the advocacy of the indigenization and contextualization of the Church in China.Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!” (REVELATION 14:13)The Episcopal Church’s and the Chinese church’s relationship started with Bishop K.H. Ting, who trained in the Anglican tradition at Union Theological Seminary in New York, served as long-time principal of the board of directors of Nanjing Union Theological Seminary, and in 1955 became the bishop of Zhejiang until the Cultural Revolution.The funeral in remembrance of Elder Fu Xianwei will be hosted at Shanghai Longhua Funeral Parlor (No. 210 Caoxi Road, Shanghai) at 9 a.m. on Sept. 5.The memorial service is to be held at Muen Church (No. 316 Middle Xizang Road, Shanghai) at 9:30am on Sept. 6.

ALTERING A LIFESTYLEMO House first focus on a challenge: to make an affordable house for a newlywed couple that is going to grow a family in a limited area whilst altering a lifestyle. Mande Austriono—an architect of DFORM and the owners of the house—wants to advocate the minimalist lifestyle in his architecture. Therefore, MO House tries to embody that spirit by keeping its space stripped down to its essential quality and programs. It tries to find its soul from the form: material, detail, lighting, and the human condition. In continuation, the clean space can lead the users to only keep what is necessary and eliminate the discontent in keeping unnecessary things.Save this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroThe openness and the cleanliness space of this house cause one program elimination: a storage room. Knowing that minimalist is not a mere architectural style, this is the thought that DFORM wants to deliver: “We really appreciate what we need. Every time my wife and I buy some items, we deeply examine and contemplate: do we really need it? If we do, for how long? When we no longer need that item, we should be thankful that it has been giving us the value we needed—whereas each item has a soul. Then after, we shall donate it to others in needs. This is our solution in maintaining our things clean and of course, a storage room isn’t one. Just because it is out of sight, doesn’t mean it’s out of mind.”Save this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroTHE ABILITY TO GROWMO House is designed for the growing family of a couple who wants to have a house by understanding the urgency of the programs: they not yet need a children bedroom for a couple of years. It is flexibly configured in some changing patterns of demand. It will grow into two phases and go along their program growth. As this growth usually uneven and precautions, it is important that MO House can be a dwelling that knows where to start, to grow, and to end. The whole process needs to be determined: how long the first phase will going to occur, as well as when the second phase will going to occur. At the same time, by understanding the phase of the building process, the owners know how much they need to precisely allocate their savings for the first phase, as well as the second phase. Therefore, MO House is budget friendly that it does not need to require a lot of money at one time.Save this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroThe main programs in the first phase consisted in MO House are simple: a double-height-living room as a starting point, then a bathroom in the inner parts of the house that is utilized as a separator between the living room and pantry. Upon entry, there’s also a steel-plate staircase on the left to access a loft-style bedroom on the second floor for a couple. This loft-style bedroom has a white-vaulted-ceilings with a skylight which extends the bedroom upward. It provides a spacious feeling to compromise the scale due to the small area of the bedroom. The openness below the stairs that created by steel-plate staircase without structure also give birth to the flexibility of space below to transform into different programs. Thus, the furniture is also moveable to recreate some various programs and space combinations. Also, the absence of a railing in the stairs is replaced by plant pots as a buffer.At the back of the house, there is a pantry—separated by large glass windows as a substitution for wall—with the backyard. The backyard itself becomes a potential space for space growth in the second phase: children bedroom on the second floor and below, an extension of the living room. The absence of a brick wall will make the dismantle process become more efficient due to the fact that the large glass window is easily detached. By growing a space towards the backyards—horizontally—instead of vertically, the owners can still live in the house while the building construction occurs which can also reduce the expenses. The large front door and back door in over-scaled linear circulation are also prepared for an ease in the distribution for building materials from the front yard to the backyard.Save this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroThe second phase will produce a detached mass from the first phase that is connected by a bridge. The mass detachment allows both bedrooms to have a large opening with glass windows that face each other. Despite the fact that MO House is built on a limited land, the principles of microclimate can be employed throughout the house. The most important thing in this growing space is that the phase knows where to end. It will not become a tumor that formless and have ambiguity: which form is going to be ended and to be enjoyed.Save this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroA SEPARATION OF SPACEMO House is built in a DFHousing neighborhood where there are ten similar shape and size dwellings within the 5 x 14.5 m lots. The narrow pedestrian street of 1.2 meters in front of houses becomes a public space where the community encounter and interact with each other. The separation of public and private space is needed to be done. The outer skin of MO House is blocked by a clean-white-wall as a buffer and a filter between the life within and without the house. The façade perceived as a character of the owners that want to enclose himself from the public in MO House’s secure interior. There inside, lay an expansiveness of a space with a different character: an openness.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionThe double-height living room is painted in white color so that the natural light that pours from the skylight is reflected on it and give an impression of a more spacious area throughout the house. The skylight becomes a substitution for an absence of the opening that usually provided by front-facing windows in the façade. The vaulted ceiling in the loft-style bedroom has been well suited with a clean interior: a spacious area and surely a quiet environment. The type of material that has been used in MO House is simple and humble that it has been fully embraced with all its strengths and flaws. To achieve a budget house, the architect has to deliver a creative selection in material pairing and finishing. The final result of the house is raw, but nonetheless, the idea behind the house is well-presented. Save this picture!© Mande Austriono KanigoroProject gallerySee allShow lessCoura House / Luís PeixotoSelected ProjectsSalariyeh Residential Building / Heram ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Year:  Projects MO House / DFORMSave this projectSaveMO House / DFORM ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/906895/mo-house-dform Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/906895/mo-house-dform Clipboard “COPY” “COPY” Area:  55 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographslast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Feb 15, 2012 Contrary to popular belief, straightforward answers to your farming and food questions do exist. Now, consumers can find answers in one location as a result of CommonGround’s new Website.The Website, which launched this week, has transitioned from informing audiences about the CommonGround program to providing a resource for consumers on many of the most popular food and farming topics.  As site visitors search for information on a variety of food-related questions, the program’s volunteers will provide visitors with a combination of firsthand accounts of what happens on their farms and scientific research.“I hope our Website will make people aware of the fact there is a lot of misinformation out there,” said Jennifer Schmidt, a CommonGround volunteer and diversified farmer from Sudlersville, Md. “Not all farmers live near or have access to urban consumers like I do in the mid-Atlantic region. Our Website is a great way for farm women from all over the country to connect with consumers and share our stories.The enhanced site will introduce visitors to farmer volunteers such as Schmidt, who also is a registered dietitian. It also streamlines its focus on the top eight issues consumers ask volunteers about food. Those issues include: animal welfare; antibiotic use in animal agriculture; corporate farming; food prices; biotechnology and food; hormone use in animal agriculture; the local and organic foods movements; and food safety.CommonGround volunteers, like Bennett, Colo., farmer Danell Kalcevic, dive into each issue by addressing some questions that consumers might have about what they do on their farms.“For me, I want consumers to know that we do not do things to harm anyone, and we eat the same food they do,” said Kalcevic, who raises wheat, millet, sunflowers, corn and cattle. “It is counterproductive to intentionally do things to the land, crops or animals we raise, and eventually sell or export, because that food ends up on our tables. I encourage consumers to check things out and find out that we share their concerns and raise our crops and livestock accordingly.”But sharing farmers’ personal stories serves as only one part of the equation. Making sure consumers understand the regulations farmers must follow is just as important, said CommonGround Volunteer, Renee Fordyce, who raises crops and cattle on her farm in Bethany, Mo.“I am not a scientist, nor do I have a Ph.D., but I can speak from my personal experiences,” said Fordyce. “Sometimes all people want is a simple answer to address their concerns about food. If they want more meat to my answer, I feel comfortable directing them to CommonGround’s website because of the sound science we have to back up our experiences.”From research to recipes, CommonGround volunteers hope to help visitors will find the answers to their important questions about food.CommonGround is a grassroots movement to foster conversation among women – on farms and in cities – about where our food comes from. The United Soybean Board and National Corn Growers Association developed CommonGround to give farm women the opportunity to engage with consumers using a wide range of activities. USB and NCGA provide support and a platform for the volunteers to tell their stories.Have a question you want answered? CommonGround will not let it go unanswered.

We call for the RMC’s mandate to be respected and for an immediate end to the threats against its president.”The RMC, which took office in September 2013, was created in response to the government’s then desire to end state regulation of the media. In June 2011, the government has announced a new media policy based on self-regulation.It was set up under the 2013 media law, which authorized it to issue press accreditations and regulate media content on the basis of a code of ethics. Since then, the RMC has always taken very measured positions regarding the government’s behaviour towards the media.The RURA is a government agency with a wide range of responsibilities including postal services, transport and sanitation. Its responsibilities regarding the media are vaguely defined and include “protecting the public against deceptive information”. Nonetheless, under an agreement signed by the RURA and RMC in September 2013, the RURA’s functions are strictly technical and it can only address matters of contente in consultation with the RMC. Rwanda is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The attacks began in earnest yesterday, with dozen of tweets in the space of a few hours lambasting the RMC, the legality of its mandate, and its president, Fred Muvunyi.Muvunyi dared argue that, as a broadcast frequency regulator, the Rwanda Utilities Regulatory Authority (RURA), the government agency that suspended the BBC’s broadcasts, did not have the authority to rule on a question of content without consulting the RMC. The RURA suspended the BBC’s Gahuzamiryango (Great Lakes) radio service in reaction to a documentary entitled “Rwanda, The Untold Story” that BBC 2 television broadcast in mid-October. On 5 November – again without consulting the RMC – the RURA announced the creation of an ad hoc commission to investigate allegations that the documentary was guilty of denying the 1994 genocide of the Tutsis.Some of the tweets were anonymous, some were by journalists and some were by people close to government, including Arthur Asiimwe, the head of Rwanda Broadcasting Agency (the public broadcaster).Asiimwe, who has already criticized the principle of media self-regulation, vilified the RMC in an article published today in The New Times newspaper.

While meeting with the father and three small children inside the residence, officers discovered a fully loaded semi-automatic assault-type rifle in a child’s bedroom.The father, Paul Anthony Cruz, 34, was found to be a convicted felon, which made Cruz a prohibited possessor of any firearms.
