first_imgSunday Oct 4, 2020 MUST WATCH: Goal kicker goes full thug life despite kick error Counties Manukau goal kicker Baden Kerr turned a bad moment into something worth remembering when his side played against Northland in New Zealand’s domestic Mitre 10 Cup.ADVERTISEMENTThe number 10 missed a conversion on the left hand side of the pitch and the ball took a direct rebound off the post.The ball bizarrely travelled straight back towards Kerr as he stood watching on and rather than just running back to the halfway line, the fly-half cooly caught the ball in one hand.The game finished 15-24 to Northland in round three of the domestic competition and full match highlights are available below: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

The house rises above the gentle topography near Duke Forest and is located to capture forest views and take advantage of the natural rhythms of light and air. Our clients are very private, and the program is formatted to separate the moment of arrival from the main living spaces. The house is low and long beneath the tree canopy, slightly lifted above the ground, with punctuations in the walls and roof that play off views of the forest. A folded metal skin shelters the house, providing protection on the north side and opening to the south to admit generous light.Save this picture!Floor PlanOur clients are a very private couple who desired a house that would provide separation from the world beyond their site and accommodate their opposing daily routines. Their property is buried in the woods, adjacent to Duke Forest, and slopes north. They arrive at the house via a long drive at the west end and first enter a space they refer to as the “lock and core.” Here, they leave keys, shoes, jackets, and hats behind and enter a long gallery hall that bypasses the private spaces of the house and leads east to the main living spaces. The living room frames views of the forest, near and far, and features a small area for an antique Steinway. At the east end of the house, off the living room, is a deck that reaches to within feet of the forest edge, under the folded metal roof.Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonThe private spaces are arranged for their opposing schedules. When she wakes early, she leaves the small bedroom and has all she needs to prepare for the day without returning. When he works late, he does so in a remote office that is sound proofed and located at the bend in the plan to dissipate sound. The format of house is a direct translation of their desire for privacy, their schedules, and the best aspects of the site.The house is built of a wood frame on a concrete and CMU foundation.Save this picture!SectionSteel is used to achieve thin, cantilevered roof edges and extensions of the east deck and north porch. The entire north wall and roof are wrapped in standing seam metal in a color selected to blend with the surrounding forest. Five roof monitors reach towards views of the tree canopy. The roof opens to the south to admit light. The building envelope is sealed tightly with spray foam insulation. A slab in the sealed crawlspace supports the mechanical systems, which include pumps for the geothermal ground loop, a hi-efficiency heat pump with three zones, and energy recovery ventilation. In contrast to these sophisticated systems, operable windows allow the house to accept a breeze during pleasant weather.Save this picture!© Richard Leo JohnsonProject gallerySee allShow lessOSPA Wins Competition to Design Brazilian Sports Campus in CanoasAwarded CompetitionOrizzontale Illuminates Outdoor Theater with Recycled Keg Wall at MAXXIArchitecture News Share United States 2013 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/553892/a-house-named-fred-in-situ-studio Clipboard CopyAbout this officein situ studioOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOrange CountyHousesUnited StatesPublished on October 18, 2014Cite: “A House Named Fred / in situ studio” 18 Oct 2014.

He has said that he might do a gig for us next year with his band and he has been great.“It came as a major surprise that he turned up and, even though he had said he would come down to Limerick some time, I was shocked to see him. That was a massive thing for us.”He added that he came up with the idea of a wedding fair due to his previous work as a limousine driver, a job in which he gained numerous contacts within the wedding industry.The Clarion Hotel has offered a room for free for the event on November 24, with the charity wedding fair taking place from noon to 5pm.

Concurrent with the closing of the PHH merger, Ocwen announced that Glen A. Messina had become the President and CEO of Ocwen and a member of Ocwen’s Board of Directors.“The close of this acquisition marks a new chapter in our history and creates a strong non-bank mortgage servicer, positioned for growth, and better able to serve borrowers and loan investors,” said Phyllis Caldwell, Chair of Ocwen’s Board of Directors, in a statement.The newly combined company, as of June 30, 2018, services approximately 1.7 million loans with an unpaid principal balance of over $296 billion. In 2017, the combined company originated more than $3 billion of residential mortgage loans, including reverse mortgages.“We believe our increased size and scale will create both strategic and financial benefits including accelerating our transition to an industry leading servicing platform, reducing servicing, originating, and overhead costs on acombined basis through the realization of $100 million in targeted cost synergies and improved economies of scale, and providing a foundation to enable Ocwen to resume new business and growth activities to offset portfolio runoff in the future. We are excited to officially welcome Glen Messina and the PHH employees to the Ocwen family,” Caldwell said.The increased size and scale of the merged entity has created strategic and financial benefits such as reduction in servicing and origination costs as well as fixed costs through the reduction of redundant corporate and overhead costs. Ocwen said that the new entity would also provide a foundation to enable the combined servicing platform of both the companies to resume new business and growth activities to offset their portfolio runoff. “The annual run rate synergies are now targeted at $100 million,” Ocwen said.

first_imgsshepard/iStock(ATLANTA) — Johns Mountain Overlook Road in Walker County, Georgia, is closed indefinitely because of vandalism.A popular spot for viewing autumn leaves, the site was vandalized throughout several locations at the overlook last week.“We are sad to announce that vandalism means that Johns Mountain Overlook Road will be closed indefinitely,” Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests officials posted on Facebook. They shared images of some of the vandalism — one photo appears to show a pentagram spray-painted onto a wooden deck.“The extent of this vandalism damage is much greater than pictured here, but is too graphic to share,” the park’s officials also noted in the Facebook post.They also advised those looking to enjoy a view of fall leaves to “find alternative destinations” until “repairs can be made.”Rangers and volunteers recently cleaned up three areas of the national forest. Almost 50 bags of trash and over 125 tires were collected, reported ABC News Atlanta affiliate, WSBTV.“When senseless damage like this vandalism and destruction of public facilities occurs, it takes away from our capacity to make progress addressing other critical maintenance needs,” the post continued.“Please help keep your public lands clean and healthy,” officials urged in the Facebook post.The Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests’ office was not available for immediate comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

first_imgrclassenlayouts/iStock(BUFFALO, N.Y.) — Bishop Richard Malone, the scandal-plagued spiritual leader of the Diocese of Buffalo, has resigned in the wake of widespread criticism of his handling of allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct by local clergy members. His departure, announced via press release by the Vatican on Wednesday morning, follows a report on the troubled diocese authorized by the Holy See and submitted to the Vatican’s Congregation for Bishops in November. “The Holy Father accepted the renunciation of the pastoral government of the diocese of Buffalo (U.S.A.), presented by S.E. Mons. Richard J. Malone,” reads the announcement when translated from from Italian, “and appointed Apostolic Administrator vacant seat of the same diocese S.E. Mons. Edward B. Scharfenberger, Bishop of Albany.” Malone is the first bishop in the 172-year history of the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo to resign from office. In a statement released after the Vatican’s announcement, Malone acknowledged that his position had become untenable but continued to defend his legacy. “Despite the measurable progress we have achieved together, I have concluded after much prayer and discernment that the spiritual welfare of the people of the Diocese of Buffalo will be better served by a new bishop who perhaps is better able to bring about the reconciliation, healing and renewal that is so needed,” Malone said in the statement. “As such, I requested of His Holiness Pope Francis that he permit me to retire early, and he agreed to do so. … It is my honest assessment that I have accomplished as much as I am able to, and that there remain divisions and wounds that I am unable to bind and heal.” He insisted that while he “was made aware of the general conclusions of the report” to the Vatican, “my decision to retire early was made freely and voluntarily.”Scharfenberger will take over the diocese immediately as a temporary administrator while the Vatican searches for a permanent replacement. The Diocese of Buffalo has been in a state of crisis since last year, when Siobhan O’Connor, Malone’s former personal secretary, leaked internal church documents to investigative reporter Charlie Specht from ABC’s local station WKBW-TV, sparking months of reporting about whether there had been efforts to conceal the extent of the problem from the public. In an interview with ABC News that aired as a special edition of Nightline in July, Malone defended his leadership, including his decision to allow Fr. Dennis Riter, a local pastor who has faced multiple allegations of sexual abuse of children, to return to ministry after a lawyer hired by the church to investigate the matter concluded the allegations had “no merit.” “I feel that in the almost 20 years I have been a bishop, I’ve tried hard to be a good shepherd,” Malone told ABC News, arguing that he had “inherited a decades old horrific problem of abuse.” But the crisis only deepened in September with the emergence of secret audio recordings, made by Malone’s then-secretary and diocesan vice chancellor Fr. Ryszard Biernat and obtained by both WKBW and ABC News. The recordings suggest Malone sought to conceal allegations that an active priest had sexually harassed a then-seminarian, even though Malone can be heard on the tapes describing the accused priest as “a sick puppy” and calling his alleged penchant for manipulation and retaliation “dangerous.” Despite the ensuing public outrage and growing calls for his ouster from both religious and civic leaders, Malone initially appeared steadfast in his refusal to resign, suggesting the absence of action from the Vatican constituted an implicit endorsement of his leadership. “They say the pope frequently picks up the phone and calls people around the world, but I have not been the recipient of one of these calls,” Malone said during an emergency briefing with a hand-picked group of reporters following the publication of the recordings. “I’ve had no communications from the pope at all.” “I know for sure they’re not unaware of all the news around here,” he continued. “But so far apparently I like to think they are trusting in my goodwill and my intention and my capacity working with other people to lead us further.” That changed in October, when the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington, D.C., the Vatican’s U.S. representative, announced that its office had authorized Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of the Diocese of Brooklyn to conduct an “Apostolic Visitation,” described as “a fact-finding mission which reports directly to the Holy See … to evaluate situations in dioceses.” Following the announcement of Malone’s resignation on Wednesday, DiMarzio released a statement on his review, saying that his team spoke with “more than 80 people over a period of several weeks” but giving no indication of whether or when its conclusions might be made public. “What I found are many deeply devoted Catholics who love their Church,” DiMarzio said in a statement. “I pray this moment of suffering and pain will lead to a birth of new faith. With the appointment of the Most Reverend Edward Scharfenberger, Bishop of Albany, to oversee the Buffalo Diocese, I am confident that Buffalo Catholics are in good hands. I hope that now Catholics in Buffalo can begin the process of moving forward, healing, and helping the diocese in all of its ministries.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

first_imgInflexible firms force staff to retire earlyOn 23 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Inflexible employers are forcing staff to retire early, according toresearch. An Employers Forum on Age survey, Generation Flex – Current Attitudes to theRetirement Debate, shows that rigid HR retirement policies are making staffleave work earlier than they might normally do. Nine out of 10 staff said they would extend their employment if offeredflexible working arrangements, and the same figure believe companies shouldtailor work practices and benefits to meet changing needs. Yet the research shows less than a third of employers are identifying theneeds of employees at different stages of their working lives and only a thirdare addressing the needs of different age groups in the workplace. Six out of 10 staff over the age of 50 said that they intend to retirebefore retirement age. Of those who want to retire early, 77 per cent said they would reconsiderand work into their 70s if they could do so part-time or more flexibly. Sam Mercer, campaign director at the EFA, has called on the Government tomake it easier for employers to introduce flexible retirement. “TheGovernment has acknowledged that more flexibility is the solution to theimpending pensions crisis, but it needs to act now to change Inland Revenuerules which make delivering flexibility for employers difficult,” shesaid. www.efa.org.uklast_img read more
