In the summer Koedo Kawagoe Fireworks Display is exciting in the whole city, in the autumn Kawagoe Festival, a lot of lantern lights in front of the house are fantastic and traditional.What is the best harmony of their family’s lifestyle and the traditional Kawagoe City? This project has three important themes.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe first. To respect the atmosphere of the traditional Kawagoe City, and to keep a good relationship with this community. This house features a deep black painted wall, kōshi (wooden lattices), and narrow-wide entrance and roof, which Machiya (traditional townhouse) and Kurazukuri (old Stonehouse) have. Also, we design the inside and outside space facing the street, so passers-by can make communication and enjoy together at the festival by opening the sliding door fully.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe second. To keep a comfortable distance between family, Kawagoe’s community, and space for something. This house is long like Machiya and seamless space without unnecessary walls. We designed some “Ma”(a unique space for doing something), which is like “Shoku-no-MA”(a dining space),” Tuma-no-Ma”(an individual space for the wife), and ”Doma”(an earthen semi-public space). You feel the extent of the space in this house, by opening and closing doors of the “Ma” entirely to alter the shape of rooms to suit the needs of the moment.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe third. To utilize natural energy effectively. Natural lighting and natural ventilation by the high windows there are. This house has solar panels on the roof for water heating system and a ventilation system. It sends warm air from the loft to the “Doma” on the first floor.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaProject gallerySee allShow lessCarmelites Extension / NOTAN OFFICESelected ProjectsHalf Space / Y.AN DESIGNSelected Projects Share Photographs Houses Architects: K+S Architects Area Area of this architecture project Projects CopyAbout this officeK+S ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKawagoeOn FacebookJapanPublished on May 31, 2020Cite: “Machiya in Kawagoe House / K+S Architects” 30 May 2020.

Twitter Five Fort Worth restaurants for graduation day Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU police: More than 40 responses to stolen property notice The TCU Forensic team after a national competition printThe TCU Forensics Debate Team’s car was broken into Monday, and items were stolen from the vehicle on the team’s way home from competing at the National Debate Tournament in Lexington, Kentucky.The team members stopped for lunch at a fast food restaurant in Jackson, Tennessee, and when they returned to their vehicle, they found that several briefcases and backpacks had been stolen from inside.The value of the items stolen is estimated to be around $5,000. Items stolen include laptops, headphones, textbooks and a trophy a student won at the tournament. Team coach Dr. Amorette Hinderaker’s debate bag, which included her laptop and all of her research which she has been working on for years, was stolen, said Shelby Whitson, a junior who has been on the debate team for three years.“It’s the non-monetary value that we are mourning,” Whitson said. “Hours and hours of work lost, and the stress and inconvenience of it all, as well as the sentimental value of items that can’t be recovered.”Police determined the suspect used a knife or screwdriver to open the door and forced entry, Whitson said.“They stole the debate flows notes on the arguments during the debate, including the one from the debate that won me a national championship in IPDA,” said Timothy Betts, a junior and founding member of the forensics team. “They also stole a plastic duck that has been with me in every single tournament and speech – it’s the small stuff that’s hurting us.”When they found their items had been stolen, the team members contacted the police, who fingerprinted the van while the students searched the area for any traces of their belongings, Whitson said.“We checked to see if surrounding businesses had cameras, which they didn’t,” Whitson said. “Meanwhile, our parents were looking at Craigslist and calling pawn shops.”The Forensics Debate Team competed for a week in the Pi Kappa Delta National Comprehensive Tournament. The tournament included both speech and debate skills.None of the student property stolen is covered by TCU because the team signs a travel waiver that removes TCU from liability of travel expenses. The team won several awards, including a first-place award in the International Public Debate Association event and several finalist awards.

The last time the survey showed a positive result was Q2 and Q3 of 2016, when the readings were 12% and 11%, respectively.Lenders who had a negative outlook had gone as high as 34% in Q4 2018.Purchase mortgage demands increased across the board over the past three months, and are expected to do so over the next three months. GSE eligible mortgage demands reported a net increase of 39%, non-GSE eligible mortgages demands grew 48% and government mortgage demands increased 31% during Q1 2019.Those looking into refinancing due to low mortgage rates also saw big increases in Q1 2019. GSE eligible refinance demand grew 24%, non-GSE eligible refinance demand increased 13%, and Government refinance demand saw a 15% increase.According to a report by CNBC, the volume of mortgage applications rose 1.5% earlier this month, mostly due to those looking to refinance. The average interest rate for 30-year fixed rate mortgages was 4.23% earlier this month. Black Knight report found declining mortgages have resulted in 5.9 million refinance candidates in April.

The Countrywide board has rejected Connells cash offer for the business and instead is considering a revised offer from City investment firm Alchemy partners.The shock announcement will surprise many in the industry, who until now had viewed the Connells offer the best chance Countrywide has of avoiding potential administration and a brighter future given its experience and successful track record.But the board has decided that Alchemy’s upgraded offer is in the best interests of its shareholders. This includes:An opportunity for existing shareholders to sell their Countrywide shares at 250 penceper share to be fully funded by Alchemy Partners.A cash injection of £70 million to be fully underwritten by Alchemy Partners including two new share issue offerings designed to raise £70 million, although this would see Countrywide’s shares downgraded on the London Stock Exchange.“The Revised Alchemy Proposal would enable shareholders who wish to realise their investment in Countrywide to sell their shares to Alchemy Partners, whilst also enabling those shareholders who continue to believe in the potential of Countrywide to retain their existing stake and, if they choose, invest further capital,” says Countrywide.But the Alchemy deal would also have to be voted through by its shareholders at a General Meeting, who would also have to agree to Alchemy controlling a majority of its shares – giving it total control of the company.Alchemy would also require Countrywide to renegotiate its debt with lenders to reduce its repayments to below £50 million.As Connells pointed out in its bid document, no one at Alchemy has any experience of running a large multi-brand estate agency, and its offers would clear its debts and re-capitalise the company, in contrast to the complicated new offer made by Alchemy.Connells response“Connells is considering its options regarding the possible all-cash offer for Countrywide it had announced on 9 November 2020 and re-confirmed on 23 November 2020 and urges Countrywide shareholders to take no action in relation to the Possible Revised Alchemy Proposal.”Alchemy connells Countrywide December 2, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Two men were contaminated with chemical powder earlier this week, after a drum of waste products began to leak behind a shop in Oxfordshire. The incident took place in Banbury on Wednesday morning, after the cleaners came into contact with waste products from the Specsavers Optician branch on Bridge Street. The men began vomiting, itching and broke out in blisters, and emergency services were called to the scene at around 9:15am.The incident is being investigated by Cherwell District Council and the Oxfordshire fire service.Deputy Chief Fire Officer Mike Smythe commented: “We just had two of our specialist officers in gas-tight suits enter the area, they’ve made tests of the substance. “We are confident, at the moment, that the substance is in fact inert but we do need to finish off those tests results.” Officials have not released details of the results of the testing, but it is believed that the waste products in question were the plastic shavings of spectacle lenses, which created a white powder, created after opticians resized the lenses to fit inside the frames. The two men involved were taken to Horton Hospital, after they were washed down with warm water in a decontamination tent and dressed in sterile white paper suits. The clothing has been taken away for forensic examinations.
University of Oxford researchers have compiled a list of the “Top 10 Most Annoying Phrases”.The expressions judged to cause the greatest verbal fatigue include “at the end of the day”, “I personally” and “fairly unique”. Other irritating phrases are “With all due respect” and “it’s not rocket science”.The University keeps track of overused buzzwords in a database called the Oxford University Corpus, which comprises books, papers, magazines, broadcast and internet resources.The list was published by Jeremy Butterfield, the senior researcher at All Souls College, in his book “Damp Squid”.
Reggie Walton Sentenced To 9 years For Role In Land Bank SchemeReggie Walton, the former director of the Indy Land Bank, was sentenced Monday to nine years in federal prison for his role in a scheme in which he received kickbacks for fraudulently directing the sale of abandoned or tax-delinquent properties.U.S. District Judge William Lawrence also imposed a $250,000 fine on Walton, 32, who was found guilty by a jury last year on eight felony charges including wire fraud and bribery.“The citizens of Indianapolis deserve better from their public officials,” said U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler in a statement. “Betraying the public’s trust and wasting tax dollars is a crime we take very seriously.”The sentencing comes after a federal corruption probe involving the city’s land bank, which managed the disposition of tax-delinquent, abandoned properties. Federal prosecutors charged five men, including two city employees, who used their government positions to transfer promising properties in exchange for cash.David Johnson, executive director of the Indiana Minority AIDS Coalition, was also found guilty on five counts of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering during last year’s trial. He was sentenced in December to five years in prison. Three other co-defendants agreed to plea deals before trial.Much of the federal government’s case relied on Walton’s own words as he discussed business moves with his partners in phone calls the government was secretly monitoring. The government also taped conversations between Walton and an undercover FBI agent wearing a wire and posing as an out-of-state businessman.The purpose of the Indy Land Bank was to acquire abandoned and tax delinquent properties and return them to an economically viable use. The agency sold properties to not-for-profit and for-profit real estate developers. For-profit investors were required to pay at least the appraised value of the property. Not-for-profit purchasers, however, could bypass the auction process and buy real estate for a price between $1,000 and $2,500 per parcel, regardless of the appraised value of the property.Prosecutors said Walton accepted bribes to arrange sales to not-for-profit organizations that would then sell the properties to for-profit businesses. After these “pass-through” transactions had taken place, Walton and Johnson would receive kickback payments from the not-for-profit organizations from the proceeds of the property sales.Walton, a Purdue University engineering graduate who joined the city in 2008 after a layoff from Pepper Construction, had said on the stand during his trial that in retrospect, his side business—conducted with cash and without using his name on any documents—looked bad. But he had insisted his position managing the Land Bank did not give him an unfair edge buying and flipping Land Bank properties because the Metropolitan Development Commission eventually had to sign off on the land transfers.Walton admitted, however, that he never disclosed he would personally profit from those transfers. The not-for-profit Renew Indianapolis now handles the former Indy Land Bank’s duties.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
