The project is resolved as a single storey household covered by a three-gable roof that covers the enclosed part and the open exterior spaces including a garage. This seminal decision allowed to reduce the scale of the set by adjusting the height of the facades.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe garage is located by the access limits of the plot, some 50 cm above the ground level of the household and adapts to the original topography, thus reducing the needs for ground preparation and conditioning for vehicle access whilst contributing to the privacy of the more domestic areas.Save this picture!Ground FloorThe room program is organized around a main living-dining room that can be enlarged by opening completely towards a southeast porch, where the kitchen also opens. Variations in height and the way the relationship between inner spaces is resolved contribute equally to a greater feeling of spaciousness.

From the point of view of the composition, it recalls resources that are usual in traditional buildings (heavy closings with a rugged texture contrasting with the use of wood in panels and carpentry work).

All complainants were satisfied with the FRSB’s response, so no complaints were elevated to Stage 3 for final adjudication by the board.Overall, 2.7 billion contacts made by charities with supporters via phone, mail, email, face-to-face and other channels generated 12,945 complaints. In 2008 the figures were 7,766 complaints arising from 434,546,711 donor contacts made by FRSB member charities.This increase is put in some context by the FRSB which points out that 2009 say a 31% growth in its membership numbers (with 272 new members), and a 42.3% increase in responses from member charities, together with improved monitoring and reporting.FRSB members are required to monitor all fundraising complaints each calendar year and to submit a complaints return to the FRSB during the first quarter of the following year. The complaints report and analysis are published today within the FRSB’s annual report ‘A Confident Future for Fundraising’.Direct mail, telephone and door-to-door fundraising were the methods that attracted the highest number of complaints. In terms of the first two, the FRSB commented that “it is the frequency of mailings and tone of the telephone calls respectively that are of most concern to the public”.Although FRSB members report a growth in the volume of fundraising, complaints were not evenly distributed. For example, telephone fundraising has seen a 48% increase in volume, but an 83.5% increase in complaints, whereas digital fundraising (email and online) have seen a considerable rise in reported volume (626% and 825% respectively) from a relatively low base, but very little increase in complaints (11% and 7%).Perhaps not surprisingly, given the volume of their fundraising activity, the top 50 charities by voluntary income account for 84% of all complaints and 98% of fundraising volume reported by FRSB members.Complaints: A three year picture Volunteer25 n/a858n/a108center_img Lotteriesn/a 15,696,72224511,804,88286 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

It does not take into account the number of people that are approached by a street fundraiser and decline to donate.Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board, said: “We believe that member charities continue to fundraise at a very high standard across all disciplines and, on the whole, complaints remain reassuringly low. What is more, the FRSB is seeing evidence of a growing understanding of best practice in complaint handling. We are increasingly supporting members at the forefront of the complaints process, advising them how best to tackle complaints to ensure a swift resolution and continued donor relationships.“As a result, the large majority of complaints were quickly resolved with only 19 requiring the formal intervention of the FRSB. This suggests that members are handling public concerns well and sensitively…”“What is evident from three years’ cumulative data is that complaints remain low relative to activity. And yet, there are a few core areas of fundraising that consistently attract a higher rate of complaints than others. It is clear that no two years in fundraising are the same, particularly during and post a global recession. The techniques used vary considerably as fundraisers innovate and adapt to the changing demands of donors.”Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society, welcomed the report, saying: “I commend all the members of the Fundraising Standards Board for their public commitment to keeping a high standard of fundraising practice. Fundraising is often the public face of charities and we have a strong tradition of charitable giving in the UK. Charities rely on generous public support to carry out their charitable work and the Fundraising Standards Board enables the public to donate to charities that are a member with confidence.”www.frsb.org.uk  18 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Corporate10 n/a32n/a34last_img read more

Civil society inquiry calls for urgent reform to meet future challenges

first_imgPower: shifting power and sharing more decision-making and control, being a model of inclusive participation for the rest of society.Accountability: being primarily accountable to the people they serve – instead of putting funders and government first – and being accountable to future generations.Connection: broadening and deepening connections with people and communities, bridging damaging social divides, and investing in a new ‘social infrastructure’.Trust: devoting more time and resources to build trust in all civil society activity, earning trust by speaking up to politicians and corporations, trusting communities to make the decisions that affect them.Karl Wilding, Policy Director at the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, said:“Charities have come a long way from the old Victorian model of alms-giving. Nowadays charities are often the way people come together to voice their concerns, support people around them, or share their time and talents. But like so many institutions there’s further we can go on accountability and responsiveness if we are to remain relevant in a changing world. This report is important food for thought. Our challenge now is to make sure that we keep changing.” Tagged with: research Civil society inquiry calls for urgent reform to meet future challenges Melanie May | 19 November 2018 | News A two-year inquiry that questioned more than 3,000 people about civil society and their hopes for its future warns of a decade of continuing social upheaval and calls for widespread changes in the approaches of charities, community groups and others so they can take a leading role in responding.   Published today, the Civil Society Futures inquiry, chaired by Julia Unwin, found the country to be facing democratic, digital, economic and environmental turmoil with the future of local communities, racism, social divisions around Brexit, inequality, the automation of work, and climate change among the concerns raised by thousands of people across England.According to Unwin, civil society needs to take on these challenges over the next decade, as well as seize the opportunities of the changes ahead, but this will only be possible if it radically reforms.Unwin said:“Our world is changing fast and people’s expectations are changing too. From local planning decisions to national politics to global technology, people feel ignored and divided as the future is shaped. They want much more power over their lives, they want to come together.“Civil society can and must lead the responses to these future challenges.  But too often people feel civil society does not involve people in decision-making, is disconnected from communities, more accountable to big funders than to the people they serve, and in a year of headlines about sexual abuse at Oxfam, Save the Children and others, trust in civil society is in question.“Charities, voluntary and community groups need to get back to their roots and rediscover their enduring purpose which is to connect people and to shift power. We must be more accountable and build greater trust.”The inquiry sees the coming decade as a period of opportunity and cites the #metoo movement, community responses to the Manchester bombing and new unions for gig economy workers as examples of the importance of civil society in a changing world.It calls on individuals, charities and organisations in civil society to commit to a new ‘PACT’ in order to adapt to and shape the next ten years, detailed as: Advertisement  84 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4  83 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Honors college announces new distinguishment award

first_imgFort Worth girl searches for a bone marrow donor Facebook Linkedin Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Twitter printThe John V. Roach Honors College Board hopes to increase the visibility of its program by honoring a distinguished individual with a new award.The new Board of Visitors Founders Award will highlight an individual whose achievements exemplify the mission and values of the honors college.The honors college is encouraging members of the TCU community to submit nominations for the award.“It’s an open process. We need the help of faculty, students, and alumni to do this,” said George Henderson, a TCU graduate who is serving on the 2015-2016 award committee. The committee will select the winner of the award.The award is open to an individual in any field or enterprise who inspires, challenges and exemplifies critical thinking skills, according to an announcement from the honors college.Although the nominee does not need to be a TCU graduate, he or she should demonstrate a continuing connection and commitment to the Honors College and TCU, according to the announcement.“In our minds, it represents the highest ideals of the honors college and our greater campus community.” said Dr. Dan Williams, a faculty member on the award committee.Williams, an honors professor of humanities and director of the TCU Press, said picking a winner among the nominees will be a “difficult process because there are so many splendid candidates.”Williams said he hopes the winner, who will be invited to visit campus next fall, will have the opportunity to meet and mentor current students.“I hope students are inspired and motivated by the people they meet,” Williams said. “This is a real opportunity to celebrate people who have achieved wonderful things in their lives in various ways and to get them more involved on campus.”Landon Hendrickson, a sophomore honors college student who is on the award committee, said although he hopes the award will bring publicity to the honors college, its main purpose is to inspire and help current TCU students.“We wanted to provide students with someone who was visible and someone who could be used as an example,” Hendrickson said. “It’ll be really neat to see how this first winner takes it and runs with it.”Nominations are open until Feb. 26. The winner of the award will be announced in April. Previous articleThe109: Former President George W.

Turkish justice strikes again

The demonstrators were protesting against ill-treatment suffered in prison by Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) leader Abdullah Ocalan. Proceedings were started against the two reporters, as well as 23 demonstrators, by the public prosecutor’s office on 19 March 2009. Yildiz and Dayan were sentenced on 24 February to a total of 7 years, 11 months on three counts, all suspended. The pair received 6 years and 3 months for alleged membership of the rebel PKK, 10 months for spreading PKK propaganda and 15 months for “violation of the law on conventions and public gatherings.”The verdict handed down by a criminal court in Diyarbakir represents a blatant gesture of intimidation against the journalists, whose only crime has been to try to cover stories that the Turkish government has deemed out of bounds.Yildiz and Dayan were arrested while carrying out their legitimate work as journalists and yet were tried for the same offences as the demonstrators. The sentence is out of all proportion to the circumstances that led to their arrest and trial.The reporters were accused of not complying with an order by the security forces to disperse. The verdict was based on witness statements by six police officers, which in itself casts doubt on the impartiality of the verdict. As the sentences were suspended, the two men now have the threat of several years in jail hanging over them should they be accused of similar offences again. The effect of this is clearly intimidation. For the next five years the journalists know that if they commit any further offences they will find themselves behind bars. In effect, Yildiz and Dayan will no longer be able to do their job as journalists as they would wish.Once again Turkey’s anti-terrorist law, condemned several times by Reporters Without Borders has been used by the local courts to gag the media.Finally, the organization strongly condemns the use of violence against journalists. Yildiz had to be taken to hospital following his arrest after receiving an injury to his neck. He lodged a formal protest with the police authorities but his complaint was thrown out. Impunity of this kind cannot be tolerated.The journalists’ lawyer, Veysel Vesek, has appealed. Reporters Without Borders stands alongside him in denouncing a verdict, which “shows the dead end in which the Turkish justice system finds itself”. We insist that the appeal process take account of every single irregularity brought to light.Turkey was ranked 138th out of 178 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. This verdict comes at a time when tension in the southeastern provinces is again rising following the Turkish government’s abandonment of an opening towards the Kurds and new clashes with the PKK.

Jason Powell is knowledgeable about what we, as gardeners, need and want to know about. Gardeners have a unique place in society so we should pass along our knowledge about the plants we treasure and those that we remember from people and places in our lives.”Haigh said the one thing that Powell was not able to convey to her was how to keep deer from dining on her roses. Other than that, he is a master at gardening.Those who are interested in the Master Gardener program in Troy are encouraged to call the Pike County Extension Office at 566-0985 for more information. Caulk said the great turnout for Powell’s program was an indication of how well he is respected, not only as a grower, but also as an educator.“Jason educates people about plants and about what plants will grow best in the different areas,” she said. “Education about plants is also a goal of Master Gardeners. We opened Jason Powell’s program to the public in order to better educate our community about what is available in our area and what grows best.”Powell said there is a growing interest in the pass-along plants, some of which date back to the mid- to late-1800s.

New York gyms can reopen at 33% capacity, but not yet in NYC

first_imgrecep-bg/iStockBy KARMA ALLEN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday announced that gyms could reopen in the state at limited capacities as early as Aug. 24.However, fitness junkies in New York City will have to wait a little longer, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office. Fitness centers across the state will have a 33% capacity limit, and masks will be required at all times. Facilities will also have to undergo inspection to stay open.City authorities will be tasked with inspecting fitness centers at least two weeks ahead of scheduled reopenings. Localities will also have to determine if gyms in their area are permitted to host classes, Cuomo said.There will also be other health and air filtration requirements in place.“The localities have a role here. They have to inspect the gyms before they open or within two weeks of their opening to make sure they’re meeting all the requirements,” Cuomo said. “The local elected officials will make the decision in a jurisdiction and the local health departments must inspect before or within two weeks to make sure all the guidelines are in place.”But New York City, which health data says still has the highest number of new daily cases in the state, will not reopen its indoor gyms or fitness classes on Aug. 24. De Blasio told NY1 News that he had not read the executive order.“While indoor fitness classes and indoor pools will not be opening at this time, we’ll be developing a fair and rigorous inspection system for other gym setups in the coming weeks,” a spokesman for the mayor’s office said in a statement to ABC News.The long-awaited announcement came days after the governor declined to offer a timeline on fitness center reopenings, saying, “Now is not the time,” citing surging COVID-19 infection rates in states that reopened gyms without proper protocols in place. Many states, including neighboring New Jersey, have been exploring ways to safely reopen gyms and other recreational facilities in recent weeks with most areas entering the final phases of their respective reopening plans.Some experts have recommended opening gyms in limited capacities, with strict restrictions on machine usage.Several reopened states, including Arizona, have moved to re-close gyms.“We know gyms are highly problematic from the other states. They opened them and they had to close them,” Cuomo told reporters earlier this month. “We’re here, poised delicately on this island of New York state with this sea of spread all around us, so we know we have this storm and we have to be very, very careful.”The governor’s office recently said that it was monitoring daily test results from across the states in an effort to pinpoint potential hotspots ahead of time.ABC News’ Aaron Katersky and Ivan Pereira contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Ewemove resumes taking on franchisees without property industry experience

It also sold 16% more homes via a higher conversion rate.This contrasts with the wider TPFG brand network which includes Martin & Co, where growth has come almost exclusively from lettings.“As well as also increasing its lettings revenue our hybrid brand EweMove demonstrated that its unique, highly customer centric offering can defy the challenging sales market, as its sales revenue increased,” says Wilson (left).“EweMove has improved its cash generation year on year, and tight cost control has delivered a corresponding improvement in profitability. We are on track to materially improve on the 2018 result for the full year.”Ian Wilson TPFG EweMove September 10, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
