Photo/Kelly Norrell[Episcopal News Service] While adult deputies and bishops conduct the business of General Convention this summer, the children gathered at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis will train to become mission ambassadors to their congregations back home.The Children’s Ministries of the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Indianapolis are partnering with the diocese’s Waycross Camp and Conference Center in Morgantown, Episcopal Relief & Development and National Episcopal Health Ministries to offer the children’s program for General Convention. Children from birth through fifth grade may participate from July 3-12, and may attend for all or part of the time depending on when they are at convention.The program will use Episcopal Relief & Development’s Abundant Life Garden Project curriculum.“One of the strengths of this curriculum is that a child can learn something just from a short time,” said agency formation consultant Cindy Coe, who developed the curriculum. Her 8-year-old son will attend the program at convention for four days.“Of course, if they attend for a longer time, it’s just that much deeper,” she said. “The purpose is to engage children in the work of Episcopal Relief & Development using images of the garden.”Children will once again have an area reserved for them to participate in worship services at General Convention. Photo/Paul HausmanThe children’s program is open during all committee and legislative sessions, but it’s not just child care, said Ruth-Ann Collins, Episcopal staff officer for lifelong Christian formation. “This is far from a babysitting experience. It’s a full faith-formation experience for children.”Program leaders want children to know, “Wow, we’re part of a bigger church than just our little church,” she said. “They get to meet kids from different parts of the country.”Participating children will attend the daily convention Eucharist. “They’re going to have their own spot up front so that they can see what’s going on and really feel like they’re included in it,” Collins said.They’ll also receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the worship space. “Some of these kids have probably never even been in a sacristy,” she said.In choosing the curriculum, Collins said, the thought was: “Let’s get these kids to be ambassadors.” The hope is that they’ll return home with their program “tool kits,” speak to their congregations or church leaders and perhaps demonstrate one of the projects.“It’s a real take-away,” she said. “Children can do mission and ministry, and that’s what we’re trying to show people.”The curriculum encompasses units on water, seeds, soil, animals and harvest, Coe said. Each of the five modules includes Old and New Testament lessons, a “story from the field” lesson and a meditation.“We can’t take children on an airplane and take them overseas and show them what Episcopal Relief & Development does, but we can show them in their own garden what we do overseas,” she said. By planting seeds and tending a garden, children “really do understand first-hand” what it’s like to have to grow your own food.In one of the program’s most successful activities, children walk 10 minutes to get a bucketful of water, Coe said.Children through fifth grade who attend General Convention can participate in their own faith-formation program. Photo/Paul Hausman“It starts out great, they go frolicking along,” she said. Children from the Episcopal School of Knoxville in Tennessee, for example, walked over a rough nature trail to a freshwater spring.“The problem is, they had to then walk uphill to get the water back to the garden. We always unwind that process, and they always say it’s fun. Then I say, ‘Would you like to have to do that every day?’ and they say, ‘No.’ They always come back with a wonderful appreciation of a fresh glass of water that they can get just by turning on the tap.”Overall, she said, program participants “come to an appreciation of things many of us take for granted.”The curriculum has been used with preschoolers through seminary students, in church schools and vacation Bible schools, and even overseas.At General Convention, the children will be divided into different age groups. During the program, they will visit the Waycross camp twice. Waycross counselors and counselors in training will be among the children’s program staff.“That’s a real intentional partnership, where we do leadership development for young people that are going to be camp counselors,” Collins said.National Episcopal Health Ministries was a natural connection for the program, Collins said. “We’re all trying to work to make children aware of good health, what it means to live a healthy life. They’re going to actually take our children on health walks” and will talk to them about healthy lifestyles.“We have our own chef, to make sure that they get nutritious food,” she said. And the program will have a nurse on staff.A student at the Episcopal School of Knoxville pours water on plants in the school’s garden, part of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Abundant Life Garden Project. The curriculum, which will be used during the children’s program at General Convention, teaches children to appreciate things like clean water that they normally take for granted in everyday life. Photo/Kelly NorrellBeyond serving the youngsters, Collins noted, “By having an intentional children’s program, it will help to make the opportunity to serve as a deputy more accessible to people with young children. … It allows someone of that age group to come and be part of the governance of the church without having the burden of, ‘Where do I leave my child for 10 days?’”“It also helps deputies who are grandparents and are the primary caregivers,” she said.Having the children at convention and present during worship, she said, “really is a visual way of reminding the General Convention floor of the future of the church. … What decisions we make today are impacting where the church will be for these young children as they grow up.”The children’s presence is a reminder to ask: “How are we being good stewards of the future?” she said.A registration form for the General Convention children’s program is available here. Cost is $65 per day, or $625 to $650 for all days, depending on the child’s age.The Abundant Life curriculum can be downloaded free here.— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.In Spanish: http://bit.ly/Lvxxcd Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Albany, NY Director of Music Morristown, NJ Youth Minister Lorton, VA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Smithfield, NClast_img read more


AD Classics: Saltzman House / Richard Meier & Partners Architects

first_imgArchDaily Projects 1969 1969 “COPY” CopyOne of the earliest built works of Richard Meier, The Saltzman House, completed in 1969, is one of several Meier-designed residences that exhibits his signature style: absolute whiteness, geometric composition, and the prominence of light. With a heavy early-Modernist influence, the Saltzman House captures the purity of form and space seen in the projects of Le Corbusier.+ 15Situated on a flat, three-acre East Hampton property near the tip of Long Island, the house consists of a primary three-story structure and an adjoined guest house. Meier explains that “from a distance, the cubic composition appears to flatten into a two-dimensional shape against the background of land and sky.”1 In order to take advantage of the scenic coastline, which is not visible from the ground plane, the upper two levels of predominantly common space are elevated above a slightly recessed private ground floor. This lifting of the upper mass produces a sense of weightlessness similar to what Le Corbusier achieved with the use of pilotis, but with greater elegance and subtlety. The house reads as a monolithic mass with intelligent voids, strategically located to optimally articulate daylight for the interior. The exterior, which features a prominent curving plane, is clad with vertical, white-painted wood siding and perforated with ribbon windows.Save this picture!© Ezra Stoller/EstoSave this picture!Middle Level Floor PlanOne enters the Saltzman House via an outside stair attached to the guesthouse that leads to an elevated walkway connecting to the middle level of the house.  Adjacent to the entry corridor, the spacious and abundantly day lit double-height living space is interrupted only by round steel columns.  Four of these columns surround an opening to the dining room below—the only triple-height volume.  Attached to the living space is the master bedroom, which includes a walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom, and covered terrace.  At the center of the house a diagonal stair connects to the lower, more compartmentalized level.  Wood load-bearing walls on this private level separate the kitchen, den, two bathrooms, four bedrooms, and the aforementioned dining room.  The upper level, largely consumed by a terrace, looks down over the living space below.  An external spiral stair provides a fourth method of circulation, which services all three levels.Save this picture!© Ezra Stoller/EstoThe early residences of Meier, such as the Saltzman House, established a clear foundation for his unique and recognizable style.  Examining the Saltzman House one finds the use of white, geometry, the layering and sophistication of composition, and his treatment of light; all of these characteristics remain present in his contemporary projects.  Light—perhaps most relevant to his work—dictates his spatial concepts and forms.Shortly after completion of the Saltzman House in 1969, Meier became known as one of the New York Five, a group of architects bound by both their physical proximity and mutual dedication to Modernism. Of the Five, Meier was particularly relentless in his “pursuit of the essence of modern architecture,” for which he was later awarded the 1984 Pritzker Prize.2 His style, developed through early residences such as the Saltzman house, delivered a strong voice for Modern architecture during a time when philosophical conflict of contrasting movements was commonplace. Contrary to other architects who became influenced by Postmodernism, Meier consistently stayed true to his Modernist ideals. Meier is considered to be one of the greatest American architects of the twentieth century alongside Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Kahn, both of whom he has great admiration for. Richard Meier & Partners Architects remains a successful contemporary practice.1 Allen, S., Meier, R.

Required fields are marked * Top of the News Subscribe In letters to the City Council’s Municipal Services Committee, local residents decried a recommendation to end 90-minute free parking at city garages and other proposed changes to the city’s parking policies.“Eliminating 90 min free [parking] will certainly impact our decision to go to Old Town for anything!” wrote Christina Equihua. “Please don’t do this! It will negatively impact the few businesses that remain there. Wake up!! Look at your homeowners and their average age… we’re getting older and parking is a decision point on where we go and spend $$$.”All told, the committee received more than 50 letters opposing a report on the matter, which appeared as an information item on Tuesday’s agenda. The committee took no action on the report.The city-owned parking lots allow motorists to park for free for the first 90 minutes, with a maximum parking rate of $6.Other recommendations from city Transportation Director Laura Rubio-Cornejo and a consultant tasked with creating a parking strategic plan for the city include eliminating free parking on holidays, implementing a merchant parking validation program, and increasing the daily maximum parking rate to $12.The suggested changes come at a time when businesses and many residents are struggling due to a loss of income caused by the pandemic. If the changes were to go through, causing or contributing to a slow-down in local businesses, they could be devastating to already struggling companies.“I have glimpsed at a summary of the parking report and recommendations made by the consultant,” said William K. Morris. “I think the changes recommended are ill-advised. Increasing the rates for parking will only hurt Pasadena businesses (and lead to less sales tax revenue). Eliminating the 90 minutes free, eliminating free holiday parking and increasing rates is not the solution we need for Pasadena.“I am a real person who attempts to shop in Pasadena whenever possible – convenience and to support my community. This parking consultant is in ‘La La Land’ — please simplify and cheapen parking. I have several friends in business on Lake and they have never liked the metered parking on Lake and behind the businesses on the East side. Go ahead and enforce time limits – those overstaying should be fined. I (like many of my friends and neighbors) will just go elsewhere — La Canada, Altadena, Arcadia, Sierra Madre to shop, eat and recreate. I understand there are revenue issues — but this is not the way to solve them.”The Transportation Department started working with the consultant, Dixon Resources Unlimited, in March. To review the city’s parking program, Dixon started holding stakeholder meetings, coupled with an online survey, to obtain information to better understand Pasadena’s parking needs and concerns. Dixon also reviewed the city’s parking ordinances and policies and evaluated the city’s off-street and on-street parking fee structures.In a draft submitted to the Transportation Department, Dixon’s most significant recommendations include modernizing both the city’s on-street parking technology and its parking rate model. Upgrading on-street meter technology should be coupled with utilizing parking payment data as one way to determine on-street parking occupancy, which would then help to determine parking rates.The demand-based parking rate recommendation is intended to keep an 85-percent occupancy level on the street while providing drivers with different pricing options for their parking sessions. According to the draft plan, this, in turn, should increase vehicle turnover and maximize the volume of drivers that can visit a metered area. A flexible base rate is also proposed to be updated periodically based on historic parking occupancy figures, along with an escalating rate model that encourages parking turnover but allows customers to pay premium rates if they choose to stay for longer periods in a metered space.“If you plan to end 90 minute free parking at old town parking garages, then prepare to lose significant spending in the Pasadena economy,” said Peter Cote. “This idea is absurd, especially at a time when both consumer spenders and businesses are struggling to survive the pandemic. As a Pasadena resident, I object to any parking changes at this time.”Dixon is also recommending that parking meter holidays be eliminated. Currently, the city has nine parking meter holidays each year when drivers aren’t required to pay.Dixon said these parking meter holidays made sense in the 1990s when the first city parking meters were installed because most businesses were closed on major holidays. Now, a majority of businesses remain open on most holidays, which have become some of the highest volume parking days of the year. Eliminating parking meter holidays would enable better management of parking spaces during holidays, the draft said.Other recommendations included in the draft are for the city to consider eliminating or restructuring the citywide overnight parking restrictions for residential parking and updating parking signage to make them more user-friendly, directing people to parking spaces with ease, and more effectively communicating parking regulations.After Tuesday’s presentation to the Municipal Services Committee, the Transportation Department said it hopes to be able to conduct further meetings with stakeholders and return to the City Council in the summer with final recommendations.One Old Pasadena business owner who has been doing business in the city for the past six years said she was greatly concerned by the committee’s consideration of removing the free 90-minute city parking option as well as the suggestion that businesses pay for customer validations.“After nearly a year of struggling with COVID restrictions, a move like this could be the final straw for small businesses in the area,” said Mia Mazadiego, owner/event & marketing director of Neon Retro Arcade on Raymond Avenue.“Many community members are also struggling financially during these challenging times. Even with the 90-minute free parking option, parking issues are the number one complaint from my customers about our location in Old Pasadena,” Mazadiego wrote.“Removing the free parking option will absolutely cost me customers and if you haven’t noticed, foot traffic in Old Pasadena is already at a record low. Incremental increases to the daily rate would be understandable. Making the significant changes being suggested by a company that is clearly not familiar with our community would not be the right choice at this time.” STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy More Cool Stuff CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more


Baby Boomers in Position to Control Market’s Direction

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Baby boomers and other homeowners over the age of 55, which number about 67 million, control about two-thirds of the nation’s aggregate home equity, which computes to about $8 trillion.These numbers put this group in a position to greatly influence where the housing market will go in the next decade, according to Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sean Becketti in a blog post on Wednesday.“Whether they decide to move from their current homes or age in place, the cumulative impact of their decisions on mortgage demand, affordable housing supplies, and the housing options available to Millennials and other aspiring homeowners will be substantial,” Becketti wrote.Freddie Mac’s survey of nearly 4,900 homeowners age 55 and over (a mix of men, women, Caucasian, African-American, and Hispanic, and Asian), revealed that the majority of baby boomers are satisfied with their current homes (about 64 percent) and that 90 percent believe people their age should own a home. Nearly everyone surveyed said homeownership makes sense for married people with children (96 percent), and a majority said it makes sense for people without children (85 percent).About 63 percent of respondents said they prefer to age in place, which would compute to about 42 million homeowners spread out across the entire 55+ demographic. However, that still leaves approximately 40 percent of boomers (27 million) who said that if they had complete control, they would move at least one more time. According to Freddie Mac, 19 million of those boomers plan to buy a home and eight million plan to move in the next four years.“These are big numbers with the potential to tighten homebuying competition in the housing market, especially for millennials and other first-time homebuyers,” Becketti wrote. “They also have the potential to generate significant new demand for mortgage credit. Whether the borrower is financing age-in-place renovations or buying a new house, even a relatively modest increase in lending to 55+ homeowners could add trillions of dollars in new originations in a relatively short time. One way or another, the baby boomers’ housing decisions over the next few years will take our market to brand new places.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News June 8, 2016 1,773 Views Previous: Freddie Mac Offloads More Risk to Private Investors Next: Industry Groups Oppose ‘Piecemeal’ GSE Reform Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Baby Boomers in Position to Control Market’s Direction Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Baby Boomers in Position to Control Market’s Direction Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Baby Boomers Freddie Mac Housing Market 2016-06-08 Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Read full article Related posts:No related photos.center_img What is an expert?Shared from missc on 9 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today During our working lives, almost by default, we look at the long tenured staff members in our organisations with reverence. We see them as professionals to look up to, fountains of knowledge and information, given the years of service. Quite rightly so. In that time, they must have learned a fair amount about the industry in which they operate. But surely having 10, 15, 20 years of experience in an industry doesn’t constitute immediate ‘expert status’?In my opinion, it’s the breadth of experience you have in your chosen skill-set that will differentiate you. Let’s take the recruitment industry for example. Recruitment isn’t the type of industry that has one clear cut way to do things that’s considered “correct” and does not follow a specific formula or set of rules. Success in recruitment will come from tackling a range of recruitment challenges in your career and the way in which you handle them, along with the experience you gain from them. The length of time in an industry can of course ensure a certain depth of knowledge in one or a number of things and in my opinion, I would put a higher value in less depth of knowledge of 10 recruitment challenges learned over 20 years, than 20 years of experience facing one recruitment challenge.It’s the age old “1 year of experience 10 ways, or 10 years of experience 1 way” adage. I believe the most successful recruiters who can legitimately call themselves experts fall into the “1 year of experience 10 ways” group. We operate in an industry where our skill-set is not an exact science. It will be our adaptability and ability to be agile in our approach when grasping the intricacies of any given talent acquisition problem, (whether it’s internal or agency, large enterprise or SME, volume or not etc.) and offering expertise on efficient and effective ways to manage it based on previous experience, that will genuinely ensure the worthiness of the reverence you will receive.last_img read more
