Eclipse-watching Episcopalians see a glimpse of the holy in celestial…

first_img Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group St. Peter’s Church in the Great Valley, an Episcopal church in Malvern, Pennsylvania, reported that about 70 parishioners and neighbors attended the congregation’s viewing party.“It was a great success,” said Charlene Hanbury, one of the organizers.The group at St. Peter’s began dispersing shortly after the few moments of peak eclipse had passed. After helping to clean up, Hanbury said, the partial eclipse was still concluding, so she took a few minutes to stare up and marvel at the sight.When organizers of the ecumenical Faith, Art and Creative Expression: A Liturgical Arts Conference saw their 20th anniversary conference this year would straddle eclipse day, they chose as their theme “Darkness Transformed Into Light.”  It  is being held in Hendersonville, North Carolina, at Kanuga, a conference and retreat center with Episcopal roots. Kanuga was out of the path of totality, but the 40 or so conference participants took a bus trip Aug. 21 to Greenville, South Carolina, to experience the total solar eclipse.They gathered at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Greenville for prayer, music and a picnic lunch before the skies darkened as the moon began passing in front of the sun.For about an hour leading up to the total eclipse, “it was a very sweet kind of meditative time,” conference coordinator Lark Howell said. Then as soon as totality ended, the group began a worship service and celebrated the Eucharist, the day getting brighter and brighter as the service progressed.Some congregations held events leading up to eclipse day. St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Carbondale, Illinois, held a cosmic-themed hymn sing the evening before the eclipse. Members of St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Madison Heights, Michigan, attended “Love Eclipses Hate,” a community event held Aug. 20 at a city park as a message against hatred and fear.Alliance, Nebraska, was a prominent epicenter of eclipse-watching buzz this week. The small city on the Nebraska Panhandle was in the path of totality, promised good weather and is home to the Carhenge art installation.

Renting campsites on church property raised about $4,000 for the congregation, and the influx of about 150 to 175 visitors made for a communal atmosphere during the eclipse.God’s show didn’t disappoint, Nelson said. As the sky grew darker, the wind picked up and the temperature dropped, but the wind seemed to halt during the brief total eclipse, when the sun created a halo-like corona around the moon.“It’s just an awesome experience,” said Nelson, who had spent the last six months planning the church’s viewing party and makeshift campground. “This totally was worth every minute of it.”— David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Photo courtesy of Ken Brannon[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Ken Brannon chose to close St. Thomas Episcopal Church for the morning on Aug. 21, because when you live in Sun Valley, Idaho, or any other point along the path of a total solar eclipse, no one wants to spend peak viewing hours indoors.“It was just gorgeous,” Brannon told Episcopal News Service by phone after watching the eclipse with his wife and son on a ridge near their home.This was the rare solar eclipse in which, weather permitting, the moon could be seen blocking at least part of the sun across the whole continental United States. The most special viewing, however, was reserved for those in the narrow path of the total solar eclipse, across 12 states from Oregon to South Carolina. There, the peak eclipse, or “totality,” lasted mere minutes, though the memory will last a lifetime.“It’s like you are looking at perfection. It’s just an amazing experience,” said the Rev. Alice Nichols, rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.The city had marketed itself as “Eclipseville” because it was the point where the moon’s shadow took its most direct aim at the Earth during the total eclipse. The church, meanwhile, had marketed itself as a prime viewing site, and the Grace Episcopal viewing party drew about 35 people, including some from as far away as New York.The weather was ideal, Nichols said, and the experience spiritual.“It was like a moment of seeing the holy,” she said. “And you had nothing to do with it. It was just a gift.”With Americans everywhere getting caught up in eclipse fever, Episcopalians joined the craze – grabbing protective glasses to gaze skyward individually or in faith gatherings and viewing parties.The solar eclipse began midmorning in the Diocese of Oregon, where St. Edward’s Episcopal Church in Silverton hosted a viewing party at its outdoor labyrinth. Across the country, in the Diocese of Georgia, diocesan offices closed at noon “so that staff can enjoy the magnificence of God’s creation in the solar eclipse.”Anticipation ran high even in the parts of the country outside of the path of totality. The Episcopal Church of the Resurrection in Spokane, Washington, organized a viewing party. Holy Trinity Episcopal School in Houston, Texas, tweeted that it had bought its whole school eclipse-watching sunglasses to enjoy the show in the sky. Rector Martinsville, VA Episcopal Service Corps in Baltimore organized a labyrinth walk during the eclipse.

These two leading themes are arranged to create a single overall structure through the symbiotic positioning of the different roof landscape. The integrated roof landscape means that at first glance it is not clear to the individual that these are actually two separate buildings, yet the roof that slopes towards the west connects the residence with the garage and therefore enables the existence of an intimate outside area in this interim zone.

LaurenceBlumcraft 1301 Series Entrance SystemThe ground floor is accessible directly above this zone. Although the north façade has a pitched roof, the actual separation of each design theme is highlighted by a house with a pent roof in front of the southern façade. This means that the building also looks like two different buildings from the two opposite sides. This is not visible in terms of the overall context, however, and basically refutes the configuration of the layout. Save this picture!© Ulrich KehrerThis does not in any way reveal that the roof landscape may be configured differently. The living areas are incorporated in the ground floor in a clear expression of form and have a special connection with the outdoors due to the interior courtyard. The private areas are located on the first floor and are arranged towards the south. The cladding of the passive house is a wooden construction, including cladding with a spruce formwork (with rear ventilation). The remaining heat and the hot water are produced using a heat pump with deep drilling.

Sukkha House was built in a gated community located in the northern region of Buenos Aires. The volume of the building consists of two pieces that depict the formal simplicity of the design. There is the intention of discovering the house’s own voice, based on the use of bright volumes that rest one on top of the other. Pure forms with the possibility of being slid without meeting anything but total emptiness, creating habitable spaces. The planes and volumes appear without any openings or interruptions. Instead, some of their sides dematerialize and merge with big virtual surfaces and large glazed panels, thus preserving the continuity of slabs and walls to create envelopes. The main volume of the upper floor rests on top of another on the ground level, which generates an empty space for the area of the social use of the house.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralSave this picture!Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe functions of the building are organized around a central axis that begins with the introduction of the access, characterized by a series of elements that soothe the transition between the outside and the inside of the house. At the front, we meet a slab with a rectangular opening that invites us to look at the sky on the way to the door and, by doing so suggests the presence of the upper floor volume. At the same time, a suspended concrete partition accompanies the experience and prepares us to enter the house by giving a glimpse of the surrounding vegetation. The whole time, the designed sunscreen visually limits the patio and enlarges the upper level. The shading screen not only constitutes but also unifies the front and rear façades, thus consolidating a volume that reflects a strong architectural concept. The program was developed around the four indoor and semi-open patios, which organize the spaces as well. These uncovered areas lengthen the visuals, gather light, provide cross ventilation and offer the possibility of incorporating the green spaces and landscape into the most intimate parts of the house.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralThe exposed concrete plays a decisive role and shapes the main envelope of the building. As regards the slabs that support the structure, plain formwork was used to achieve an even finish and to highlight the horizontal planes. For the upper floor, formwork made up of 3’’ wooden planks was used to provide an uneven finish as a result of the different shades marked by the pattern of the material. The palette offers warmth and movement to the obsessive straight lines that shape the house. The concrete elements always rest on top of either crushed stone volumes of light wide flange beams that connect the different parts while providing an ethereal air. This effect of weightlessness is stressed by the big eaves and cantilevers. The presence of the wood contributes to the feelings of lightness and warmth. The wooden elements provide transparencies and spatial insinuations inside a cubic and precise volume as if implying an intended contradiction. The combination of materials and the continuity of vertical and horizontal elements enhance the dematerialization of boundaries. At all times, the indoor floorings become part of the outdoor patios and the internal ceilings expand and merge with the outdoor spaces in the shape of big eaves, thus giving a sense of continuity that prevails.Save this picture!© Alejandro PeralProject gallerySee allShow lessPinheiros Coffee / Studio Boscardin.Corsi ArquiteturaSelected ProjectsPizza 4P’s The Emporium Restaurant / SEMBA VIETNAM Co.Selected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931131/sukkha-house-oon-architecture Clipboard “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/931131/sukkha-house-oon-architecture Clipboard Argentina Projects Manufacturers: SANTOS, SBG, ABC DESIGN STONE, ARREDOBAGNO, CAVATORI MARMOLES, DE OTRO TIEMPO, DISEÑO AZTECA, H-LADAN INSTALACIONES, IDENTIDAD ALUCOBOND, KIKELY, MALIBU, NOVA STEEL, PGS LUZ, RICHARD PARRILLAS, SNEUBER SANITARIOS, VIDRIOS DEL OESTE Save this picture!© Alejandro Peral+ 24Curated by Clara Ott Share Year:  CopyHouses•Pilar, Argentina 2019 Arquitectos: OON Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Lead Architect: Sukkha House / OON Architecture ArchDaily Lucas D`Adamo Bauman, Santiago Robin, Federico Segretín Sueyro “COPY” CopyAbout this officeOON ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPilarArgentinaPublished on January 06, 2020Cite: “Sukkha House / OON Architecture” [Casa sukkha / OON Architecture] 06 Jan 2020.

This residence in central Tokyo is the second of two houses located a minute’s walk from one another, both occupied on a routine basis by the client. The client’s sole request was that we create a modern space made up of elements lacking in the first house. This explains the rather unusual plan: a rec room and wine cave in the basement, a garage and lounge on the first floor, a space for entertaining on the second, and walk-in closets on the third.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe project fits neither the typical definition of a regular house—that is, a place to spend everyday life—nor that of a vacation home, a place to escape everyday life.  Rather, it sits somewhere between the two, intended to expand ordinary life and cast it in a fresh light. In a typical vacation home, it is possible to create a sense of the extraordinary simply by opening up the building to the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaIn this case, however, because of the small urban lot, only so much could be done through manipulation of the form in relationship to natural light and the garden. We therefore employed an alternate strategy of handling the entire project, from façade to interiors, furniture, and fabrics, as one borderless whole, each of whose parts is of equal value, thereby creating a new kind of environmental expression.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaWith every small interval of passing time and shift in natural light, the dense collage of materials used throughout the house takes on a subtly different appearance. Similarly, each step through the space brings unexpected scenes as one moves around forms designed to highlight the unique characteristics of the materials. The ribbed concrete exterior walls contrast a rough surface on the concave portions, achieved by pressing squared lumber into the formwork, with a polished surface on the convex portions. In addition, the ribbing is vertical above the exterior staircase and horizontal below it.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaSave this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe balcony wall is made from stainless steel strips laser-cut into various widths, laced into a basketweave, sprayed with a fluoropolymer coating, and roughed up with a brush for a complex finish. On the walls in the area for entertaining, several plastering processes are layered on top of one another, creating both vertical and horizontal grains similar to woven fabric. Nearby, a metallic curtain and softly upholstered sofa integrate into the space in a way that blurs the boundary between architecture and interior design. During the daytime sunlight pours in from a skylight, but in the evening, the setting sun slants in from the west, completely transforming the mood of the room.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaThe unexpected combinations of materials and furniture evade description, and by extension, normalization. The front door is finished with textured cypress panels and a machined stainless-steel handle. In the second-floor powder room, the use of white as a keynote color for both finishes and furniture serves to highlight differences in texture and pattern. In the third-floor bathroom, a Japanese-style wagon and Italian chair occupy a modern space constructed from faux stone tiles and glass.Save this picture!ElevationsIn the basement wine cave, the high-tech mood of the stainless-steel shelving with linear LED lights contrasts with a classic Italian porcelain tile floor. We also designed a custom ping-pong table to match the space. In each case, contrasting materials or patterns are brought into a hairs-breadth harmony. As the light shifts and people move through this house full of many different materials, finishes, and forms, they encounter a limitless range of scenes. This interactive relationship between light, movement, material, and form transforms an everyday space into a ceaselessly extraordinary one.Save this picture!© Masao NishikawaProject gallerySee allShow lessLittle Creatures Brewery / Robert Simeoni ArchitectsSelected ProjectsTemporary Chapel Alhambra’s Cross / Colab-19 + Sociedad Colombiana de ArquitectosSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960261/extraordinary-ordinary-house-love-architecture Clipboard Projects CopyHouses, House Interiors•Japan Yukio Asari Photographs ArchDaily Year:  Maezawa Corporation ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/960261/extraordinary-ordinary-house-love-architecture Clipboard Houses “COPY” Construction: last_img read more

Making the most of automated e-mail messages

first_imgNielsen observed users reacting to 40 sample automated email messages, examining how they interacted with the email in the in-box view and read individual messages. His report looks at how these messages can be better written and constructed in order to satisfy the customer or donor, and avoid appearing as spam in an over-filled in-box.Not surprisingly he recommends that messages should be brief, and that writers must focus particularly on the content of the subject line and “from” field. For example, messages with the subject “Important information” tended to be deleted.While confirmation e-mails can build trust, a badly constructed message can harm an organisation’s brand.The full 108-page report on the usability of confirmation e-mail and transactional messages is available at $199.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Community Lending Group Asks Government To Amend GSE Bailout Terms As Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac continue to generate profits in a recovering housing market, a group of community lenders has joined the chorus of advocates calling for the government to revisit the terms of its bailout agreement with the two mortgage giants.In a recent letter addressed to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and Mel Watt, director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the Community Mortgage Lenders of America (CMLA) urged the government to “take immediate action to cure the under-capitalization” of the GSEs by re-amending the payment terms established when they were forced to take a bailout after the crash.Per the terms of their preferred stock purchase agreements, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are required to turn the majority of their profits over to Treasury. As of the end of this year, the companies will have paid a combined $225.5 billion, tens of billions of dollars more than the amount they drew to avoid going under.In a statement, CMLA Chair Paulina McGrath said that steps taken to ensure the GSEs’ profitability—including driving up guaranty fees—are pointless if those steps aren’t contributing to their capital.”Making mortgage money more expensive is simply locking many borrowers out of the market and serves no benefit to the GSEs,” McGrath said. “Renegotiating the [agreement] now is a common sense approach to ensuring the safety and soundness of the GSEs.”As an alternative, CMLA also recommended lowering guaranty fees to remove the “unnecessary tax” the group says is keeping low- and moderate-income borrowers out of the mortgage market.”Mortgage bankers have now joined the Civil Rights groups and community banks in asking for this important, common-sense change,” McGrath said.In addition to some housing groups, investors in the GSEs have been vocal in the last year about the amended payment agreement, which they say created a windfall for the government at the expense of shareholders who are entitled to the companies’ profits.Some of the biggest GSE investors, including Fairholme Funds, Perry Capital, and the largest non-government shareholder, Pershing Square, have taken their complaints to court. While the Perry Capital and Fairholme suits have been dismissed, both have appealed the ruling.last_img read more
