A few years ago, an Englishman called Ray came to Malta and fell in love with Valletta. He scouted the entire island looking for a holiday home, but when he discovered Valletta his search was over. He found out about our studio after visiting a restaurant we had designed in town, and a few days later he came to my office and asked me to go see a property he was about to put a deposit on.Save this picture!© Chris BriffaIt was a unique house by Valletta standards. Not only were the rooms extremely spacious, but it also enjoyed a garden in the basement with all the main rooms overlooking it. In this sense, the house was fully introverted – an attribute that well suited Ray’s desire for privacy. But apart from limestone, there was little which spoke of Valletta.Save this picture!© Chris BriffaThere were no windows onto the street, and nowhere inside the house could one catch a glimpse of a Maltese balcony or a Valletta streetscape; until we walked up to the roof. There, just as we walked out on the roof trough a small doorway after the garigor, was the dome of the iconic Carmelite Basilica. I told Ray we have to somehow capture this view and exploit it. He said he wanted to build a penthouse suite up here; since it was surrounded by higher party walls everywhere and his privacy issues once again came into the picture.Save this picture!© Chris BriffaThis became the turning point and the main design challenge of the initial design. Building an introverted penthouse suite abutting the surrounding roof walls, while still catching a glimpse of the most famous dome in Valletta. The problem was that the dome was only visible from this one particular doorframe, since as one walked out onto the roof, the dome slowly disappeared from view. So we took a site plan of the neighborhood, traced two lines from this point and projected them over to the dome. We had to convince Ray that the resultant triangular void would be left unbuilt, and the penthouse had to be designed around this void to secure the dome view, and frame it upon climbing to the penthouse via the garigor.Save this picture!© Chris BriffaA few meetings later, Ray confessed that he owned a weekend house in London, designed by the world-famous minimalist, John Pawson. As much as he loved spending time in this house, he complained that it was too much of a white sculpture in its own right, and whenever he wanted to put up a work of art from his growing collection – it simply didn’t feel right.Save this picture!© Chris BriffaRay’s Valletta house would need to provide what his Pawson house could not – a friendly space for artworks of all sorts; paintings, sculptures, eclectic furniture and large objects … with the masterpiece sitting on top of them – the Valletta dome duly framed on top of his house-cum-art gallery.Save this picture!© Chris BriffaThis is one of the most beautiful houses we have built in Valletta. Ray turned out to be a tremendously insightful client. Not only did he understand the importance of framing the iconic dome, but he was also keenly responsive in dealing with the delicate balance between old and new – with the use of traditional materials such as lime and contemporary concrete.Save this picture!DiagramRay has been coming to Malta over the past four years, and he rarely left Valletta. Now that his house is complete, he visits Valletta more often than ever, and confesses that he rarely leaves the building.Project gallerySee allShow lessNUA studio / NUA ArquitecturesSelected ProjectsTägern / Urben Seyboth AGSelected Projects Share CopyHouses, Renovation•Valletta, Malta Ray’s house / Chris Briffa ArchitectsSave this projectSaveRay’s house / Chris Briffa Architectscenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/797218/rays-house-chris-briffa-architects Clipboard Year:  2014 Ray’s house / Chris Briffa Architects ArchDaily Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/797218/rays-house-chris-briffa-architects Clipboard Photographs:  Chris Briffa Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY”last_img read more

Residual Weed Control, New Options for 2016

first_img Facebook Twitter Residual Weed Control, New Options for 2016The Roundup Ready Plus system provides residual weed control in a wide variety of weather conditions. Chris Reat, with Monsanto, says as growers saw in 2015 that you need to have a weed control program that is flexible to adapt to unexpected weather conditions, “You have to be able to roll with the punches. If it is too wet or too dry, you need to alter your application timing and have a post-residual control as well.”For 2016, Reat says the Roundup Ready Plus system is offering some new tools for Indiana growers, “For Indiana, I would like to see a product like Warrant® Ultra be used. It makes a real nice complement  to a true residual program.” Warrant Ultra Herbicide  is the only premix on the market to formulate microencapsulated acetochlor with fomesafen, and will provide two mechanisms of action (MOA) for residual weed control. Additionally, fomesafen provides an additional postemergence MOA.Warrant® Ultra has quickly become a favorite among soybean and cotton growers for its outstanding residual weed control, including control of glyphosate-resistant and tough-to-control weeds as well as for its crop safety due to its unique microencapsulated formulation.  With the focus on input costs, Reat says the Roundup Ready Plus system is a good cost-saving option.

Hu Jia’s wife, Zeng Jinyan, threatened with eviction

Zeng, who is bringing up their 3-year-old daughter alone, reported on Twitter yesterday that the authorities are pressuring the owner of her rented apartment in the southern city of Shenzhen to evict her. She has been under close surveillance ever since her husband’s arrest in December 2007.“We are outraged by the government’s harassment of Zeng Jinyan, an emblematic figure in the struggle for human rights in China,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “By treating the 2008 Sakharov laureate’s wife and daughter in such a despicable manner, the Chinese government is showing its contempt for the European Union and the values it defends.”Julliard added: “We support the condemnation expressed by Jerzy Buzek, the president of the European Parliament, and we urge the European Commission and its vice-president, Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs, to do the same. We demand that the Chinese authorities put a stop to this policy of hounding Zeng.”Zeng is threatened with eviction from the Shenzhen home to which she moved with her daughter in April, following permanent harassment and surveillance by the police who were stationed outside her apartment in Beijing. The move was motivated in part by the desire to avoid the possibility of house arrest after her husband’s release, which is due to take place on 26 June.Referring to the eviction threats, Zeng wrote on her Twitter account on 8 June: “The landlords had been forced to end a rental contract. I’ve received physical threats. How many times will we have to move? I know this won’t be the last time.”In another post the same day, she referred to the other forms of harassment to which she is subjected: “If I try to find a job, they threaten my boss. If I try to work with someone, they threaten my partner.”In early December 2007, Reporters Without Borders awarded a special “China” prize to Hu and Zeng for the way they way they were managing – despite being under house arrest – to inform the world about the negative impact that preparations for the 2008 Beijing Olympics were having on the Chinese population.A campaigner on behalf of AIDS sufferers, the environment and free speech, Hu was arrested three weeks later and was sentenced on 3 April 2008 to three and a half years in prison on a charge of inciting subversion of state authority. Zeng and her then four-month-old daughter were meanwhile place under residential surveillance.The European Parliament awarded its Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought to Hu in October 2008.

Former Playboy editor freed after eight months in prison on indecency charge

first_img to go further News Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years June 24, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Former Playboy editor freed after eight months in prison on indecency charge On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia Melanesia: Facebook algorithms censor article about press freedom in West Papua RSF_en News News August 21, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails today’s release of Erwin Arnada, the former editor of the Indonesian version of Playboy magazine, after the supreme court accepted his appeal against a two-year jail sentence on a charge of indecency, overturning its own decision. He began serving the sentence last October.“Now it is proved, I am not guilty, journalism is not a crime,” Arnada said in his first Tweet after being freed from Cipinang high-security prison in Jakarta, where he spent eight months. He was jailed as a result of pressure from Front Pembela Islam (Front of Islamic Defenders), which objected to photos of a bikini-clad model.“Despite our satisfaction faction at Arnada’s release and the overturning of his conviction, we will continue to monitor developments closely,” Reporters Without Borders said. “His case has already been the object of several judicial U-turns. After being acquitted by a district court and the Jakarta high court, he was convicted by the supreme court in August 2010, when it was asked to review the case. The judicial system must remain independent and not yield to pressure from a radical group known for its violence.”Although it never published photos of nude women, the Indonesian version of Playboy had been the target of hostile demonstrations by Islamist groups ever since its launch in 2006 by the Velvet Silver Media group in 2006. After violent attacks on its offices, the magazine moved its headquarters to the island of Bali before closing for good in 2007.Regarded as the world’s most populous Muslim country with an estimated 212 million followers (nearly 90 per cent of the population), Indonesia is ranked 117th out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. center_img Help by sharing this information November 19, 2020 Find out more IndonesiaAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Indonesia News Organisation Receive email alerts IndonesiaAsia – Pacific August 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Navigating Safe Harbors and HOAs

first_imgEditor’s note: This story was originally featured in the January issue of DS News, out now.The Florida Fourth District Court of Appeals (Fourth DCA) recently affirmed the extension of safe harbor protection provided to homeowner’s associations under §720.3085(2)(c), Florida Statute, to a nonmortgagee/non-mortgage holder. The statute addresses property assessments imposed by Florida homeowners’ associations. Under the pertinent provisions of this statute, if the associations’ governing documents allow for assessments, a parcel owner is liable for all assessments that come due while it is the parcel owner. Additionally, if the parcel owner sells or transfers its ownership interest, it is “jointly and severally liable with the [new] parcel owner for all unpaid assessments that came due up to the time of transfer of title.”The statute provides certain limitations on the amounts that can be assessed against an owner where the owner is “a first mortgagee or its successor or assignee” that acquired title to a parcel by foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure. Under this provision, the amount a mortgagee or mortgage holder owes to an association are limited to the lessor of 12 months of assessments that became due immediately preceding the acquisition of title or 1 percent of the original mortgage debt.In Villas of Windmill Point, CitiMortgage held a first mortgage on real property that was subject to unpaid association assessments. CitiMortgage successfully foreclosed its mortgage and named the property owner’s association, Villas of Windmill Point II, in its foreclosure action. At the foreclosure sale, CitiMortgage placed the successful bid and became the title owner of the property. After taking title, CitiMortgage deeded the property to Fannie Mae. The Villas’ association and Fannie Mae disagreed on “whether Fannie Mae was entitled to the protection of the safe harbor provision … ” of the statute, to limit the amount of unpaid assessments. Fannie Mae’s servicer, Nationstar, sued the association on behalf of Fannie Mae to compel the association’s compliance with the safe harbor provision of section 720.3085(2)(c), Fla. Stat. The association argued Fannie Mae “was not a first mortgagee (or its successor or assignee) that acquired title to the parcel by foreclosure or by deed in lieu of foreclosure.”The trial court ruled in favor of Nationstar and limited Fannie Mae’s liability to the association to 1 percent of the original mortgage, plus monthly assessments that accrued after CitiMortgage took title. The association appealed that ruling. The Fourth DCA agreed with the lower court, finding that Fannie Mae, although not a first mortgagee or a subsequent mortgage holder, still “indirectly” benefited from the safe harbor provision of § 720.3085(2)(c) because of the joint and several liability clause in that statute. The Fourth DCA pointed out that the association incorrectly read the statute “in isolation” and overlooked that Fannie Mae’s liability was “coextensive with that of CitiMortgage for all unpaid assessments that were due up to the time of the transfer of title.” The court noted the parties did not dispute the fact CitiMortgage was entitled to the safe harbor provision.The court explained: “… CitiMortgage’s entitlement to the safe harbor protection of section 720.3085(2)(c) is relevant to determining the amount of Fannie Mae’s ‘joint and several liability’ with CitiMortgage.” The court concluded: “[W]hen Fannie Mae acquired title to the property from CitiMortgage, it became jointly and severally liable with CitiMortgage for all unpaid assessments owed by CitiMortgage at the time of transfer of title, that is, 1 percent of the original mortgage amount, or $1,036.00.”The Fourth DCA’s holding in Villas of Windmill Point is well reasoned and should expedite the REO process on units that are subject to unpaid association assessments. Practitioners should be aware of the rationale applied by the court in evaluating the relationship between the GSEs and the servicing entities responsible for servicing GSE loans. To the extent association statutes extend protection to mortgagees, those protections should extend to the underlying investor.

In its latest forecast, the University has included sub-tropical storm Andrea that had formed off the Atlantic coast prior to the start of the season.The forecast pegs the probability of at least one major hurricane to make landfall along the continental U.S. coastline at 54%, slightly higher than the historical average of 52%.“As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them,’’ Phil Klotzbach, the forecast’s lead author told Bloomberg. “They should prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted.’’Klozbach also pointed out that the forecast this year was tricky because the models were mixed on “whether an El Nino across the equatorial Pacific will last into late August and September.”According to the report, six of the 14 named storms were likely to be hurricanes with two major systems that would carry winds of 11 miles per hour.Category 3, 4, or 5 hurricanes can cause much damage to life and property. In 2017,  Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma together caused damage worth $265 billion according to data from the National Hurricane Center cited by Bloomberg, making it the costliest hurricane season in recent times.In fact, the U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to pass H.R.2940, which provides $19.1 billion in recovery funds for disaster-affected areas including Puerto Rico. The House passed the bill after a 10-day recess, voting 354-58. As the Senate had already voted to pass the bill 85-8 on May 23, the bill will now move on to President Donald Trump for his sign-off.”We must work together quickly to pass a bill that addresses the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the border and provides law enforcement agencies with the funding they need,” said top Appropriations Committee Republican Kay Granger of Texas on Fox News. “The stakes are high. There are serious—life or death—repercussions if the Congress does not act.”According to the Texas Tribune, Texas has already received billions of dollars for Harvey recovery, but each bucket of money is designated for a specific purpose. The $4.3 billion that Congress approved for Texas last February is part of a HUD grant program designed “to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas.”The Five Star Institute will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners. The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on the response, reaction, and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes.
