The apartment building, located in Barajas in the group of blocks under the management of the new extension of Barajas, was generated mainly at first to catch the light, wind and outdoor life.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeBased on the urban zoning for this block, the building is conceived as a game where the apartments act as blocks on top of five floor slabs creating interspersed terraces and open spaces.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe building is organized around open corridors of the old “corralas”. This condition creates interrelation between neighbors and new living spaces. The apartments have a human character which comes from its architectonic qualities and new common spaces: the hallways, terraces and central interior zone.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe facade is defined by the identity and uniqueness of each housing unit. Each was conceived as “a Box Top¨, made ​​with only two precast concrete slabs, providing time saving, fast and easy installation. A hybrid architecture that emerges from the combination of simple pieces which create a complex result: single range of different colors and materials generated various possibilities.Save this picture!Precast DetailsPre-fabricated elements of the facade provide an economy of construction by reducing cost and waste and strengthening the concepts of ecology and sustainability of the building.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThermal comfort and lighting is gained through the naturally favorable orientation of the facade to the south and east, and the openings opposite the main side of the housing (providing cross ventilation). This solution saves the costs of artificial air conditioning throughout much of the year.Save this picture!Public Space, Ground Floor PlanThe public square within the block is derived from the representative elements of culture in Madrid. Derived from conceptual collage, the result is a warm and collected space.

Dundon seeks judicial review of Geoghegan murder amid taping allegations

first_imgWalk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Shannondoc operating but only by appointment Linkedin WhatsApp Twitter Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement TAGSfeaturedgarda tapingjohn devaneJohn Dundonprison recordings center_img by Andrew Carey | [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up CONVERSATIONS had by convicted murderer John Dundon and his legal team at both garda stations and prisons, alleged to have been recorded by the associated State authorities, will make up the application for a judicial review of the conviction for the murder of innocent rugby player Shane Geoghegan.Speaking in Limerick, Dundon’s defence solicitor John Devane said that he would be seeking the review as telephone conversations in garda stations, including Henry Street, were recorded. He is also alleging that conversations at various prisons were also recorded.The gangland figure was sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of the murder of the 28-year-old Garryowen rugby player on November 9, 2008.John Dundon, 30, from Hyde Road in Limerick, was convicted last year and given the mandatory sentence to life in prison, but now his legal team instructed by Mr Devane will set about having the case reviewed and the circumstances surrounding the taping allegations.“While I sympathise with the Geogheghan family obviously. I certainly believe that John Dundon’s telephone calls and consultations were listened to both inside in the garda station and I would go so far as saying also his telephone calls in the prison and to his previous solicitors and also to me,” said Mr Devane.“I am looking at a number of high profile murder cases and I am also looking at some other matters including a couple of rape maters and matters where people have been convicted – I have always believed in the wrong – of IRA membership,” he added.In the wake of the surprise retirement of Martin Callinan from the position of Garda Commissioner amid the prolonged garda sagas, Mr Devane said that the recording of telephone conversation in garda stations was “disgraceful” and said John Dundon’s case would be high on his list of priorities.“I know that prison calls are always recorded and evidence has been gleamed and used in the past even in objections to bail for certain other people because of telephone calls made from the prison to other family members.“It’s an absolute disgrace and to say that the Commissioner didn’t know about that I believe is like the organ grinder not knowing the music that he is playing ….I believe that the current Minister for Justice should do as Commissioner Callinan did and fall on his sword,” he added.The high profile legal aid solicitor has said that he is reviewing a number of cases with counsel that he says were “interfered with” and added that senior garda warned him before that his own phone was being “monitored”.“This is an absolute disgrace. Whatever about my telephone being monitored, I’m not silly enough or stupid enough to advise a client of issues that might be of a sensitive nature over my telephone. But to think that the guards can monitor a conversation that might take place over a telephone or in a garda station is an absolute disgrace,” he said.Mr Devane concluded that he has “suspected for a long, long time and when advising people I have often had to write down my instructions to people so that they would follow rather than saying them out and letting the guards hear the advice I was giving or the answers that I was getting to the questions I was putting to the client.“I have had to write my instructions to the client. That is dreadful in this country where there are laws to protect the citizens against this type of eaves dropping. Watergate eat your heart out!” he added.

Report Finds Major Banks Out of Step With Changing Energy Markets

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Pilita Clark for the Financial Times:Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase have delivered billions of dollars in financing for coal, oil and gas companies that is “deeply at odds” with the goals of the Paris climate change accord, a new study claims.The banks rank among the top North American and European private sector backers of coal mines, coal power plants and costly oil and gas ventures over the past three years, according to the report by environmental campaign groups, the US Sierra Club, the Rainforest Action Network, BankTrack and Oil Change International.Deutsche Bank was the top financer of big coal miners, delivering nearly $7bn between 2013 and 2015, according to the study’s assessment of publicly available financial filings.Citigroup was calculated to have supplied $24bn for large coal power plant operators, making it the largest supporter in this category.JPMorgan Chase was ranked the largest financer of so-called “extreme oil”, financing an estimated $38bn for the biggest owners of untapped reserves in ultra-deep offshore fields, the Arctic or tar sands.Dozens of other large banks named in the study have also “engaged in fossil fuel financing practices that are deeply at odds with the global climate agreement” that nearly 200 countries reached at the December COP21 meeting in Paris, the report says.Full article ($): Citi, Deutsche and JPMorgan censured for backing fossil fuel Report Finds Major Banks Out of Step With Changing Energy Marketslast_img read more

Turn losses into gains when you integrate e-signature within your core

first_img 20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Preston Packer Preston Packer is the Director of Sales & Marketing for FLEX. Preston has been with FLEX since 2000 and has worked in various sales management roles over that time. Preston’… Web: www.flexcutech.com Details Collecting signatures on loan documents and membership forms can be a pain, so giving members the ability to sign documents from anywhere, at anytime, on nearly any device, will no doubt improve your member relations. The benefits to your members are obvious, whether they’re geographically dispersed or are tech savvy, they will appreciate fewer trips to your branch to get things done. But the benefits to your credit union’s operations could be more numerous than you think.  In the game of numbers, these benefits are measured by reductions, where less is more:1) Time – Reducing the time it takes to complete the cumbersome process of obtaining required signatures needed on loan and membership documents will allow you to increase loan volume and open new accounts faster. According to DocuSign, the industry leader in secure electronic signatures, delays in getting signatures not only cost you time, but in the case of earning interest on loans, time is money. No matter the interest rate, losing a week or two of interest while you wait for signatures can really add up.Signing delays can also mean lost business, since a frustrated member may seek out competitive offers while waiting for the document workflow to complete. Credit unions report that electronic signatures have increased pull-through rates by as much as 20 percent.Your employees will gain significant time, cutting down on the back and forth communication and in-branch meetings, or simply playing the game of figuring out where the latest version of an agreement stands.  This valuable time can now be better spent providing other essential member services. Your employees will have one less follow up item to handle with documents being sent instantly from within your system for electronic signature, along with built-in automated reminders.Additionally, when eSignatures are done correctly, signed documents can be returned to your core system and saved in your document management system automatically. This will eliminates a great deal of administrative effort, resulting in significant operational gains.2) Risk – Documentation can require multiple signatures and approval points, increasing the margin for error dramatically. Critical agreement processes, such as new account openings and commercial lending involving several people and/or steps, also open up the door for human error at many points along the way.  With a robust e-signature program integrated with the core processing system, data fields can be captured and verified at the point of signature, so neither you, nor your member, can miss anything, which improves accuracy.According to a Forbes Insight study, full-time equivalent (FTE) savings (a unit that indicates the workload of an employed person) associated with the elimination of manual processes (mail sorting, document handling, scanning, etc.), resulted in a 70 to 80 percent improvement in efficiency. Error reduction was more than 50% since so many errors in financial transactions result from missing signatures on documents.  If you’ve followed all the proper steps in setting up your system, e-signature transactions produce completed documents that meet all legal and compliance requirements.3) Cost – Logistically speaking, it is easy to see immediate benefits in cost savings for e-signatures, including paper, ink, postage, overnight shipping, etc. And while these are small numbers on a case by case basis, depending on the size of  credit union and the number of loans you originate, they can add up quickly.  There are also softer, less obvious benefits to cost reduction that you will see on your bottom line when improving operations. According to a joint study by MIT and Deloitte 2015 Digital Business Global Executive Study, companies that rank highly on digital maturity outperform their competition, achieving 13% higher revenue and 19% higher market valuation.  In addition to increasing your speed in closing loans and automating new account openings, profit margins may increase, resulting in additional positive gains.As you look to implement e-signatures or work to improve your e-signature and document flow, good planning and a sound strategy become as important as the technology itself.last_img read more

Super sixth win for England’s girls

first_img England are Girls’ Home International champions again – winning the Stroyan Cup for the sixth year in a row. They achieved their success at St Annes Old Links, Lancashire, despite a final day defeat by Ireland. Scotland, the only team which could have caught them, also lost on the last day to Wales – meaning England’s earlier wins over Wales and Scotland were enough to retain the title. “A win is always good,” said England team captain Chris Pascall. “Only two of the girls had played Home Internationals before so it’s a very good result and they really did very well.” Gabriella Cowley (Brocket Hall) and Olivia Winning (Rotherham) were both in last year’s winning team. This year’s successful side was completed by Annabel Dimmock (Wentworth), Sammy Fuller (Roehampton), Alice Hewson (Berkhamsted), Sophie Keech (Parkstone), Sophie Lamb (Clitheroe) and Sophie Madden (West Essex). In the final day’s match, England and Ireland were level pegging after the morning foursomes with 1½ points apiece. In the singles England managed 2½ points, thanks to Alice Hewson, Sammy Fuller and Sophie Lamb, losing overall by the narrow margin of 5-4. Ireland and Wales both finished with the week with 1½ pt each. On a countback of individual games won, Ireland had the edge (13½ to 11½) and that won them the Swansea Spoon as runners-up. Scotland finished last with 1pt.

In tomorrow’s final match England face Ireland, who drew 4½ -4½  with Wales in today’s other match. England trailed 2½-½ after this morning’s foursomes – but that halved match was all important. Annabel Dimmock and Sammy Fuller came back from three down with five to play to secure the half point – and to give the team some vital momentum. “To have lost 3-0 would have been a disaster but this gave us some momentum,” said team captain Chris Pascall. “The girls knew they would have to come out fighting – and they did.” Gabriella Cowley, Annabel Dimmock and Sophie Keech all secured their singles points before England suffered their only loss of the afternoon. But then, Olivia Winning crucially held her nerve through a testing hole to win her point and ensure the team could not be beaten. She won the 16th to go one up, but then put her tee shot out of bounds on the 17th. She responded by putting her next drive straight down the middle and firing her approach to within 18in of the pin and sinking the putt for a par five! Meanwhile, her opponent took six and the point belonged to England. Sophie Lamb completed the victory by winning her point on the 17th.

Inside Conditions…The more things change, the more they remain the same

first_img(Bradenton, Fla.)—Today is March 11, 2013 my 60th birthday or as former President of the United States the late Franklin Delano Roosevelt would say, “a day in infamy.”  Just the day before I, arrived in Tampa Bay and spent the day with my cousin Dr. Ramon Bruce, freshly retired from the Veterans Administration. “Doc” Bruce is a gentleman and a scholar who received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Auburn; I offered him my condolences with a smile. The genealogy of Dr. Bruce springs from the Bruce Tuskegee lineage; but you know what? Baseball and sports are like families in many ways, the more things change, the more things stay the same. Many things have changed since I began to cover MLB many years ago. I won’t say what year it was because it would be telling my age. Oops my bad, I already told my age.  However I continue to feel sorta, kinda lonely “upstairs” because  on this particular afternoon there is not one, not one speck of color in the press box besides me, oh except for the janitor. Sometimes it gets lonesome here at the top and believe me “being at the top” does not mean anything arrogant, insolent or egotistical; I am just stating the obvious. I am at the bottom rung of those who sit up top. Don’t try to blame this “continuing phenomenon” on anyone or anything because this is not the fault of MLB; but please answer this one question for me. Where in the hell are all of the professional baseball writers?  I know when teams from “chocolate cities” compete there are writers with more than ample amounts of “melanin” sprinkled throughout the “box.”  When I awoke at the crack of dawn semi-lamenting my charge into my sixties, I realize the more things change, the more they remain the same.  At this point the boys of summer are now the boys of semi-spring. They are ugly caterpillars ready to emerge from the cocoon of the losing. Pirates’ pitcher Jeff Locke who came over from the Atlanta Braves entered the game with a 2-1 record and a 3.60 ERA starting 3 games so far in the Pirates “grapefruit league” season. Even though his location wasn’t as sharp as he would have liked it to be he remained optimistic. “Since I have come over [from the Braves] everything has been better, from my routine, to my work ethic.” he said. “Maybe I was younger over there, now I’m maturing.” AUBREY BRUCElast_img read more
