This organization offers free civil legal assistance to low income individuals in Orange County and assists in the representation of minors. According to Martha Bergmark of the Washington Post “over two thirds of critical cases and American civil court, people appear without a lawyer, even though the stakes are often just as high as in criminal proceedings.” The Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association helps to fill this void of legal representation for low income Floridians.County CommissionerBryan NelsonAccording to County Commissioner Bryan Nelson, “The Legal Aid Society is there to help our least fortunate residents of Orange County.”The Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association primarily focuses on family, housing, consumer, immigration, and social security Law. Family law specifically deals with such issues as Dissolution of Marriage, Custody, and Guardianships. These issues affect many Americans on a day-to-day basis, and individuals without legal counsel face an uphill battle. The Housing law specifically deals with tenant’s rights, foreclosure, or other loss of home ownership. Having secure housing is a basic foundation to a stable family. In regards to Consumer matters such as debt collection and bankruptcy the Legal Aid Society provides low-income Floridians with specialists to assist them. Immigration matters primarily deal with Green Card applications and the Sealing and Expunction of Records.The incredible services that the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association provides to our local community continue to help build a safe and stable Central Florida. Also, there are ways for local residents to get involved and help make their community a better place through the Legal Aid Society. “VAC” stands for Volunteer Advocates for Children. VACs are dedicated non-lawyer volunteers who assist the pro bono Guardians Ad Litem “GAL” with several parts of their dependency cases. The most common way for VACs to contribute to a dependency case is to provide ongoing visit assistance for the GALs. Additionally, VACs also attend out-of-court meetings on behalf of the GAL to discuss case-specific issues, such as child placement and child contact with parents. The role the VAC plays in each dependency case is based on the needs of the GAL.For more information or to get in contact with the Legal Aid Society of the Orange County Bar Association call (407) 841-8310.

Casa Guayacán is located in the mountainous foothills of Nosara. The property is surrounded by primary tropical forests and presents a splendid ocean view. This house was designed by a couple of architects (Evangelina Quesada and Lucca Spendlingwimmer), who decided to move to the mountain with their two daughters to enjoy the tranquility that the mountain offers. Casa Guayacán was conceived under a deep process of discussion between both architects, with different ideas and tastes at times, but with the advantage that both architects are lovers of contemporary tropical architecture and in this respect they agreed and were able to capture the concepts they have developed in common throughout their professional careers.Save this picture!© Andrés García LachnerSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andrés García Lachner  The starting point of the design was to develop an elongated facade from North to South to focus most of the spaces towards the ocean view. The west façade opens towards sunset and in the morning the vibrant light appears from the east. It was also very important to move the house as far away from the public street as possible to create the maximum space for privacy in the front yard. The main challenge was the unevenness of the terrain. It was decided to develop the design on two levels, the lower level was partially shorter, so that the access area was below the main structure. The lower level was used for general access, the parking area, a studio and service area. The upper level was used to exclusively locate the common areas and bedrooms to fully exploit the ocean view and the sea breeze. Cross ventilation through its facades was emphasized with a system of half-open wood slats through which the air flow passes, in addition to the internal spaces, this lattice creates a changing light pattern during sunny hours. The configuration of the floor plan was made on a modular grid of 1.8 meters between axes, on this lines it was developed the distribution of the spaces and the structural system of both levels, this contributed to the spatial order, made the construction process more agile and meant a reduction in the waste of materials.Save this picture!© Andrés García LachnerSave this picture!Transversal sectionSave this picture!© Andrés García LachnerCasa Guayacán was built in masonry, metal, wood and glass under common construction methods in the area, the wood was treated with linseed oil keeping part of the texture to give a soft color and a natural texture, the wood work was done by local artisans, and the wood used was teak from controlled plantations. Some main walls were emphasized in polished cement to create a contrast with the other mostly white walls. In the part of energy saving, Casa Guayacán has a solar panel system that provides 100% autonomy day and night. As a final result the design of Casa Guayacán is a composition of simple lines and geometric solids with a detailed lattice of serial woods, a combination of solidity and transparency.Save this picture!© Andrés García LachnerSave this picture!© Andrés García LachnerProject gallerySee allShow lessOptimistic Realism and Shared Autonomy: 5 Young Practices with New VisionsArticlesRevitalization of Prague’s Riverfront / petrjanda/brainworkSelected Projects Share “COPY” Save this picture!© Andrés García Lachner+ 44Curated by Clara Ott Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/941397/guayacan-house-salagnac-arquitectos Clipboard CopyHouses•Nosara, Costa Rica Year:  Costa Rica ArchDaily Lead Architects: 2019 “COPY” Area:  450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Guayacan House / Salagnac ArquitectosSave this projectSaveGuayacan House / Salagnac Arquitectos Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Lumion, American Standard, Delta Light, Nemetschek, A.C.

first_imgQ&A: Three professors received the Deans’ Research and Creativity Award Members of theCrew and the French house teamed up to host French-inspired theme event. Marie Schein, a faculty advisor of the French house also came to support the event. Linkedin The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Participants can write their own messages or use one of two messages written in French by members of theCrew and the French house. Members of theCrew and the French house teamed up Thursday night to bring awareness of French culture and offer ways for the TCU community to pay respect to victims of terror attacks in Paris.Following the November 13 attacks in Paris that left 129 people dead and 359 people injured, the world united and many international leaders issued statements of mourning and solidarity in honor of France’s victims.TCU student organizations united to show solidarity in the wake of Paris attacks.“This event brings together a couple different groups on campus mainly theCrew and Le Maison Français [French house] and also it’s for Paris in light of what happened.” said Robert Hillery, theCrew leadership and development director. “I’m really glad we got to do the event because our thoughts and prayers go to Paris.”Jean-Paul DuBos a resident and representative of French house said earlier the event was meant to bring awareness of French culture as well as French program to TCU community.“Originally it did start out at more showing French culture and then giving more visibility to French house and French program on campus,” DuBos said.The terrorist attacks last Friday prompted student residents of the French house to show condolences to French victims.“We felt that was appropriate to set a little station for people to send their condolences and messages to support the victims,” said DuBos.DuBos said he reached out to a French instructor to incorporate the ideas of showing support to French victims into reality.“I sent the email to Madame Schein and she was able to carry that on to theCrew,” DuBos said.Marie Schein, French instructor and faculty advisor for the French house, said student residents in the French house wanted to show solidarity immediately after terrorist attacks unfolded in France.“It was incredible to hear from the students in the French house but other students as well Friday evening.” Schein said, “To hear how saddened it was and to hear that immediately, they wanted to respond, they wanted to find a way to show that they too hurt.”TCU students were welcome to offer words of sympathy and support to French victims by English and French languages on Thursday night, said Schein.“We decided that’s a nice gesture to do would be to write notes to the families of those who were affected by the tragedy.” Schein said, “Friends and families who were in the restaurants, the cafes and in the concert hall that night and around the stadium.”Schein said notes will be sending to major local businesses that were most affected in the terror attack that struck Paris.Around the world, many cities have joined in solidarity with Paris by lightning up monuments in blue, white and red to resemble the colors of the French flag. Mourners have held candlelight vigils, laid floral tributes and postcards outside many French embassies.Schein said flowers were chosen to show solidarity and symbolic flowers will be placed on the notes that students wrote.“We decorated with flowers as a symbol and as a way to ally ourselves with all the people have showed their support in Paris by bringing flowers. So the symbolic flowers will be placing on the notes,” Schein said.Junior anthropology major Morgan O. John said the tragedy of the Paris attack was personal to her because of studying abroad experiences that she had in Paris.“It’s very personal to me,” John said. “I studied abroad in France this summer for about four months, I made several trips to Paris and have several friends who are in Paris at the time it was attacked. Thank God they were alright.”John said, “This shows that TCU is a place of global community truly because we do care these certain events that are happening. We come together for solidarity.”Senior Brinton Munoz, theCrew team leader, said members of theCrew brainstormed ideas to help create French-inspired theme event.“Ever since that happened, we decided to adapt our event so that we can incorporate something to support Paris and support that cause,” Munoz said.Attendees of the event got to experience culture of France as theCrew brought in caricature artists from B3 Entertainment and presented the iconic symbol of the French Capital.Chalkboards were also provided for attendees to write loving messages and pose for pictures in front of hand-made Eiffel Towel.“While you’re taking pictures what you’re going to do is you’re going to take the chalkboard and you’re going to write a little personalized message whether that’s Je t’aime Paris or hashtag PrayforParis,” Munoz said.TheCrew team member, Madison Mocek said the event had a good turnout since more than 100 people participated in the event.“That’s a good turnout for us,” Mocek said. “I think we have a lot of people come out especially we’re writing letters to victims of Paris attack. A lot of people want to help out and send their condolences to people in France.” Students were writing their own personalized messages on the postcards to show their condolences to French victims in the wake of Paris attacks.

Parts of a radio programme which Reporters Without Borders broadcast clandestinely this morning in Beijing were played over a loudspeaker.Around 100 people took part in a demonstration outside the Chinese embassy in Berlin. Diplomats inside saw the demonstrators march by.In Italy, Reporters Without Borders staged a demonstration yesterday outside the town hall of Rome’s 4th district. Another demonstrations was held today outside the Palace of the Province, with many journalists looking on. The demonstrators began unfurling the Reporters Without Borders flag, showing the Olympic rings as handcuffs, on the facade of a building until they were stopped by the police.In London, Reporters Without Borders activists joined members of pro-Tibet groups and Chinese pro-democracy activists in a demonstration outside the Chinese embassy. Exiled Chinese dissidents, leading human rights activists and members of the Tibetan community were among those who participated in a Reporters Without Borders demonstration outside the Chinese embassy in Washington DC. They also included US congressman Thaddeus McCotter, who is a staunch supporter of press freedom, and North Korean dissident Jin Jae-Ho, who has been on hunger strike for more than a week in protest against China’s treatment of North Korean refugees. Reporters Without Borders representatives including its secretary-general, Rafael Jiménez Claudín, gathered outside the Chinese embassy in Madrid and tried to hand in a letter calling for the release of imprisoned Chinese journalists. An employee refused to take the letter, calling Reporters Without Borders an “enemy of the Chinese people.” In comments to journalists, Jiménez Claudín responded that “the main enemies of the Chinese people are certain leaders who (…) do not recognise civil liberties.”More than 300 people, including members of the Reporters Without Borders Canadian section, parliamentarians and a former Canadian government minister, gathered outside the Chinese embassy in Ottawa on August 7th to demand more freedom in China before the start of the Olympic Games.

Often families have to take their children to hospital on a regular basis and these costs quickly rise.Leanne Moore,who is an ambassador for Cliona’s Foundation, said she was happy to get involved with the charity’s Lenten campaign.“I’ve been very lucky in life and now would like to give something back to help others,” she explained.“I really hope that the schools will come together to help, €200 a day quickly adds up and can be crippling to families,” she said.A single mother who lives quite a distance from a hospital, said she often cannot afford to get the train to see her daughter Sarah when she is in long-term care.“I found myself blindsided by all these unexpected bills and fees and had to carry on with my job in order to afford them. The balance between the emotional stress of Sarah’s illness and the financial stress caused by it is often unbearable,” she revealed.Brendan Ring of Cliona’s Foundation pointed out that there are hundreds of families in Ireland in a similar situation and they need help.“When a family has a sick child they should not have to struggle under the additional stress of worrying whether or not they can pay their bills,” he insists.For more details on the schools Lenten campaign log onto www.clionasfoundation.ie.

first_img Previous articleBehind the scenes and dreams of Angela’s Ashes The MusicalNext articleInquiry into claims that off-duty Gardaí sought prostitutes in Limerick Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Advertisement TWO out of every three adults do not have a last will and a testament, according to the presentation given by a leading Limerick law firm recently.Kevin Doughan, a qualified estate and trust practitioner and head of probate at Holmes O’Malley Sexton (HOMS) solicitors told a recent business breakfast meeting that he was alarmed to discover that 66 per cent of Ireland’s adult population have not made a will.Delving deeper into the figures, the findings reveal that 80 per cent of people over 65 do make a will while the younger generation are more likely to put it off with 42 per cent of those between 45 and 64 having a will and a mere 30 per cent of the under 45s.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Hosted by Shannon Chamber, the non-business topic was covered in the first of three talks on succession planningMr Doughan said that regularly reviewing wills made creates certainty about who is getting what and allows people to appoint their chosen executors and trustees. It also allows testamentary guardians to be appointed to take care of children and ensures that adequate financial provision can be made for dependents, as well as enabling discretionary trusts to be set up for children with particular needs.”“Will-making may seem complex but is very easily managed and once there is a will in place, there is certainty for the future, Wills can be changed periodically to take account of changing circumstances, so that’s why we encourage everyone with something to bequeath to make a will as making one can ensure tax efficiency and the avoidance of post-humous family disputes.” added Mr Doughan.Helen Downes, Shannon Chamber CEO said that they have had a great reaction to the series and that continues on Friday March 24 next which will deal with inheritance tax.
