The basic materials for this home are those used in traditional simple rectangular cottages with gable roofs found on the region’s mountain roads. The design of wooden structures on top of plinths is another of marvel in the region. This combination was rarely used in traditional buildings. The upper structure rests casually on the stone plinth. In this home the upper wooden structure is cantilevered over the stone plinth as if an avalanche had moved it.Save this picture!Courtesy of ProdesiThe plot of land has its aspect to the West affording a panoramic view of the valley.

Legacy marketing online “unproven”?

first_imgThat is certainly not the case. The first UK charities to include legacy content online did so in 1995. UK Fundraising would be happy to feature any examples of successful online legacy campaigns. Contact Howard Lake.

Listing the advantages and disadvantages of the different legacy promotion media, he notes that the Internet remains “unproven” as a vehicle, the only one of 15 channels listed with that status.This is a poor comment on charities’ use of the Internet as a legacy fundraising medium to date. Legacy campaigns, we are told, often tend to start producing a return within four years. The first UK charity Web sites appeared in 1994. Did UK charities studiously avoid including legacy appeals on their Web sites until 1998, so that we can’t yet tell if the appeals have succeeded?

Japan’s prime minister defies anti-war public

first_imgAs 40,000 Japanese anti-war protesters were demonstrating in Tokyo on March 22, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s cabinet approved the enactment of two security laws that the demonstrators believe violate pacifist clauses in Japan’s constitution.The rules will allow Japanese imperialism to use its military in a more aggressive way than at any time since 1945, under the pretext that an ally of Japan is under attack or that Japanese lives are threatened. Although U.S. imperialism imposed a pacifist-leaning constitution on Japan following its victory in World War II, Washington has currently urged the Japanese government to expand its military role in East Asia.Washington’s strategy envisages Japanese and south Korean forces operating under U.S. leadership while confronting China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. This is much like the way British, French and German armed forces operate in Europe under NATO command — which is always U.S. command. The U.S. has been especially provocative toward north Korea (DPRK), refusing to finally sign an agreement ending the 1950-53 war and normalizing relations.In the late summer of 2015, when plans for this new militarization were first announced, more than 100,000 Japanese and Okinawans demonstrated against them. Okinawa is an island group 400 miles south of the main Japanese islands, with a non-Japanese population and the lion’s share of U.S. military bases. It is a center of anti-war activity directed against both the Japanese and the U.S. military machines.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The agency’s objective was to develop a program that helped targeted borrowers avoid foreclosure while also adhering to FHFA’s mandate to preserve and conserve the assets of the GSEs. After this evaluation, the one-time Principal Reduction Modification program was announced on April 14, 2016 specifically for the eligible population expected to be approximately 33,000 borrowers.This program’s goal was to give seriously delinquent, underwater borrowers a last opportunity to avoid foreclosure while also addressing negative equity remaining from the financial crisis. FHFA has determined that loan servicers must solicit all borrowers eligible for the Principal Reduction Modification starting no later than October 15, 2016.With this social media campaign, FHFA hopes to make these borrowers aware of not just the program itself but the letters from servicers that will be sent to them. Along with promoting helpful information about the program, the agency also gives borrowers examples of these letters to insure the letters they receive will be opened and responded to quickly. To accept, borrowers have to make three on-time payments and sign the acceptance letter. The last day servicers can offer eligible borrowers this Principal Reduction Modification is December 31, 2016.To learn more about the Principal Reduction Modification program, click HERE.

Appraisals work well in UK,but rest of world is not as keen

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Appraisals work well in UK,but rest of world is not as keenOn 26 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. The use of appraisal systems is particularly British. Indeed, no other EUnation uses them at managerial level more than the UK. In 1999/2000, 92 per cent of UK organisations had an appraisal system fortheir managers. The only exception is Sweden, where organisations are just ahead in terms ofspreading the use of appraisals to other categories of staff. Other countries, such as Germany, do not tend to implement appraisal systemsas widely, although even there, about one in two organisations have a system inplace. One explanation for the uneven take up in Europe is the degree of fitbetween the assumptions underpinning an appraisal system and the organisationaland national context. Appraisals work best in cultures where it is acceptable for subordinates andsuperiors to receive feedback from one another. This pre-supposes a degree ofinformality and flat management structures. Traditionally, appraisals are carried out by an immediate superior (92 percent of cases in the UK). However, this is not the only model. Some appraisalsare carried out by the next person up (57 per cent of cases in the UK). The useof self-appraisal systems is also very popular (88 per cent in the UK).However, all these methods raise issues of bias. However, 360-degree feedback – which involves all of the above as well aspeers, subordinates and customers – is currently considered best practice as itis based on multiple viewpoints and allows a more precise assessment ofsomeone’s performance. But the use of 360-degree feedback is resource intensiveand remains marginal. Only about 4 per cent of organisations in the UK use thisinstrument. Yet it is much more popular now than it was in 1995 when even fewerorganisations (2.4 per cent) made use of it. Not surprisingly, HR managers in other EU countries are less likely thanBritish managers to offer 360-degree feedback in their organisations. last_img read more

Maroon 5, NFL face controversy after canceling Super Bowl halftime show press conference

first_imgJanuary 30, 2019 /Sports News – National Maroon 5, NFL face controversy after canceling Super Bowl halftime show press conference FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJustin Heiman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The National Football League and Maroon 5 are facing fresh controversy after the league announced that the Super Bowl headliners would not be taking questions from reporters during the traditional pre-halftime show press conference, which has been canceled.“As it is about music, the artists will let their show do the talking as they prepare to take the stage this Sunday,” the NFL said in a statement Tuesday. “Starting with the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show announcement, we began a cross-platform rollout of behind-the-scenes footage and content from each of the halftime performers. Instead of hosting a press conference, this social and digital media rollout will continue through Sunday across our owned and operated media assets as well as through the platforms of the artists.” Beau Lund pic.twitter.com/UCgQ53ssAN— NFL345 (@NFL345) January 29, 2019The decision to cancel the press conference came after months of backlash against this years’ halftime performers — Maroon 5, hip-hop artist Travis Scott and Outkast’s Big Boi. The artists have been criticized for agreeing to perform amid boycotts and protests against the league’s treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who was the first to take a knee on the field during the playing of the national anthem in 2016 to protest racism and police brutality.Kaepernick has not been re-signed by another NFL team for more than two years, and critics say that Maroon 5 and the NFL are dodging some tough questions.The NFL and Interscope Records did not immediately return ABC News’ request for comment Wednesday.Over the past few years, the NFL and the Super Bowl have been thrust into political and social debates.Kaepernick filed a grievance against league owners last year alleging that they colluded to ensure that he remains unsigned. To many, he has become a symbol of the modern civil rights movement and a pariah among some conservatives who accuse him of being unpatriotic.The protest was magnified by other athletes who spoke out and by President Donald Trump, who has ignited an ongoing feud with the NFL. Trump has decisively opposed Kaepernick and other players who followed in his footsteps and has kept the issue at the forefront of the national conversation by repeatedly bringing it up on Twitter, at rallies and while talking with reporters.The debate has prompted boycotts of NFL games from both sides over the past two seasons and Super Bowl performers have also been caught in the crossfire.On Tuesday, Maroon 5 announced that the band, along with the NFL and Interscope Records, will make a $500,000 donation to mentoring organization Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.“Playing the Super Bowl has been a dream of our band for a long time,” lead singer Adam Levine said in a statement to E! News. “We thank the NFL for the opportunity and also to them, along with Interscope Records, for making this donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters, which will have a major impact for children across the country.”Amid criticism from fans, Scott, the hip hop artist, told Billboard earlier this month in a statement that he agreed to perform at the Super Bowl because the NFL agreed to partner with him to donate $500,000 to social justice organization Dream Corps.“I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in,” Travis said in a statement. “I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”Like the national anthem protests themselves, the controversy over the Super Bowl halftime show has gone on for years. Justin Timberlake, who performed last year, also faced some backlash.Singer Cardi B told TMZ last year that she would not perform at the Super Bowl halftime show until “they hire Kaepernick back.” But she is appearing in a Super Bowl ad for Pepsi.center_img Written by All these football team owners talking and all lat but when is y’all going to hire Colin Kaepernick ?— iamcardib (@iamcardib) September 24, 2017But comedian Amy Schumer refused to appear in a Super Bowl ad, citing her support for Kaepernick.For its part, the NFL launched the “Inspire Change” initiative earlier this month to support criminal justice reform, building relationships between police and the community, education and economic advancement.This year, the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots — Trump’s favorite team — will face off on Sunday in Atlanta.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Bridge Tolls Staying the Same — For Now

first_imgThe Ocean City-Longport Bridge is one of five toll spans that link the Cape May County beach towns along the Ocean Drive. By DONALD WITTKOWSKIThe agency that oversees the five toll bridges connecting Cape May County’s seashore towns along the Ocean Drive is keeping fares the same for the time being.Karen Coughlin, executive director of the Cape May County Bridge Commission, indicated that a toll increase will likely be needed at some point, but the timing is uncertain.“We are unsure when there will be a toll increase. We know one needs to be done but have no set dates or amounts,” Coughlin said in an email Thursday.In the meantime, the commission has approved a $3.9 million operating budget for 2020. The budget projects toll revenue of $2.9 million for the year from the bridges under its control. The balance of the budget consists of reimbursements for debt service payments from Cape May County, Coughlin said.For now, tolls will remain $1.50 on the Ocean City-Longport Bridge, Townsends Inlet Bridge, Corsons Inlet Bridge, Middle Thorofare Bridge and Grassy Sound Bridge along the scenic Ocean Drive coastal route.Bridge tolls have not been raised since 2009. The commission announced plans for a fare hike in 2017 to help pay for the introduction of the E-ZPass electronic toll collection system on the bridges.It later backed off raising tolls in 2017, after deciding that a fare hike during the summer tourism rush would have been complicated and confusing for motorists.Under the proposed 2017 toll hike, the bridge commission had wanted to structure it in a way so that year-round residents would not carry the burden of the increase.There would have been a $1 increase in effect from Memorial Day to Columbus Day to coincide with the summer tourism season. A 50-cent toll increase would have occurred during the off-season. However, those plans remain in limbo.Drivers have the option of using E-ZPass to pay their tolls.Motorists have the option of paying their tolls with E-ZPass, with cash or with discount tickets. The commission stopped selling discount tickets in 2018, but motorists are still allowed to use them if they have any left over from previous years because they have no expiration date.In the past, the agency has not ruled out the possibility of a toll hike to help the county finance a major bridge construction program, including the possible replacement of the aging Townsends Inlet and Middle Thorofare spans.The commission does not have a capital budget, so it relies on county funding for bridge projects. The county is currently working on the 2020 capital budget and expects to adopt it early next year, Coughlin said.Coughlin said the commission continues to consider replacing the Townsends Inlet and Middle Thorofare bridges, but there is “nothing new at this time.”The Townsends Inlet Bridge linking Sea Isle City and Avalon went through an $8.6 million overhaul that took 10 months to complete and forced its closure through part of the peak summer tourism season.Before the bridge reopened in late July, motorists were required to follow lengthy detours to travel between both towns instead of taking a short hop across the bridge.last_img read more
