A bungalow in Naarden built in 1967 was extended and transformed by Dick van Gameren into a contemporary villa. The visionary design led to a timeless house that reflects the personalities and needs of its owners. Previous renovations closed off the original heart of the house from the living space and entrance hall.Save this picture!© Pedro KokThe renovation restores the relationship between the landscape and the house that had disappeared over the years. Sustainability also played an important role. This renovation marks the fourth version of the house. Using the existing structure as a basis, the elevations and roofs were updated.Save this picture!© Pedro KokSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Pedro KokInsulating materials were added and windows and facade elements were replaced. Removing the walls in the centre of the villa created space for a new living hall that overlooks the landscape on four sides. Two geometric roof constructions with skylights contribute to a spacious and light atmosphere. Adjacent to the living hall, a new glass pavilion extends towards the flowing stream.

New recruitment Web site for voluntary sector

Certainly this would be true for many Housing Associations and non-profit organisations. Voluntary Sector Jobs hopes to bring us all together making it easier for job seekers to find their ideal job”.As a newcomer to the online recruitment market, and in the absence of any public user statistics, the site is allowing non-profit organisations to advertise for free “until the site becomes well established.”While the site currently lists 112 vacancies, and its search function works, some of the navigation bar links do not.

U.S.-Cuba talks proceed

first_imgCuban negotiator Josefina Vidal.The third round of talks between Cuba and the U.S. to normalize diplomatic relations took place at the U.S. State Department on May 21 and 22. In press conferences at the close of the meetings, the chief negotiators of both delegations characterized the meetings as professional, respectful and productive.However, no date was set for upgrading the interests sections in Washington and Havana to embassies. And the U.S. blockade of Cuba is still in effect.Cuban negotiator Josefina Vidal stated, “These talks were held after the U.S. government, in compliance with its international legal obligations under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, issued a license to one bank to resume the banking services to the Cuban Interests Section in Washington under the conditions of the financial blockade in force.”The Cuban Interests Section in Washington had been functioning without any bank account since February 2014.U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson declared the State Department would continue “to request funds from Congress for various activities in support of the Cuban people,” as it has since 1996. These activities have, in fact, been intended to undermine the Cuban people’s socialist revolution and advance U.S. corporate interests.The Congressional Accountability Office reports that from 1996 to 2011, Congress appropriated $205 million for Cuban “democracy” assistance. Most of this went to the U.S. Agency for International Development, long exposed as a front for CIA operations. Congress has also allocated more than $25 million per year to fund TV Martí and Radio Martí, propaganda beamed from the U.S. to Cuba.Some of the not-so-stellar use of U.S. tax dollars attributed to USAID and brought to light by AP investigative reporters are the smuggling into Cuba of illegal military grade communication devices by Alan Gross, which landed him in a Cuban prison, and the ZunZuneo caper to set up a Cuban “Twitter,” secretly paid for by the CIA.Congress also voted money to send dissident recruiters disguised as Latin American youth AIDS educators to Cuba, the country with the most extensive, thorough health system, which distributes free condoms and successfully controlled the spread of HIV/AIDS early on. Students in the U.S. staggering under education debt or Detroit residents facing tax foreclosure and denial of water service could use that money right here.None of those millions of dollars eased the hardships inflicted on the Cuban people by the U.S. blockade. These hardships were reported in detail to the United Nations in support of the annual resolution calling on the U.S. to end the blockade. Since 1992, the United Nations General Assembly has told the U.S. government in nearly unanimous votes to end the genocidal, unilateral commercial, economic and financial blockade. (See reports and news at of May 29, Cuba’s name will no longer appear in the U.S. government’s list of countries that supposedly “sponsor terrorism.” Including Cuba demonstrated that the list has not been based in fact, but is a weapon of imperialism that should not exist at all. In fact, it is the U.S. that sponsors terrorism. More than 3,000 Cubans have been killed in U.S.-sponsored terror attacks since 1959.Cuba expects to be regarded and treated as an equal, a sovereign independent country, not a potential colony. That is the context for the talks that began on Dec. 17. The world is behind Cuba’s right to exist, especially the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. Step by step, Cuba is moving forward.The same united voice opposed the Obama administration’s March 9 executive order putting sanctions on Venezuela with the claim that it is a threat to the U.S., the biggest economic, military, nuclear-weapon-equipped force in the world.As difficult as sorting out diplomatic relations may be, the biggest test of U.S. intentions comes over the question of its unilateral economic, commercial and financial blockade of Cuba. Before there can be full normalization, the blockade must go.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

State officials Pledge Support for Expansion of the Pork Industry

first_img Previous articleTPP Addressed Possible NAFTA ChangesNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt State officials Pledge support for Expansion of the Pork IndustryThe Indiana Pork Business meeting held on Monday featured Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch’s first address to the state pork industry. She outlined plans for better broadband communication and for common sense regulations. Crouch told the state’s pork leaders that the Holcomb administration wants to grow the pork industry and has a plan to help producers achieve their goals, “A plan to build our infrastructure, provide great government service, grow our economy, fight the drug epidemic, and continue to create a 21st century workforce.”Crouch addressed environmental legislation moving through the General Assembly that would clarify the role of IDEM and permitting rules for CFOs, “Our administration recognizes the importance of legislation that codifies the Indiana Department of Environmental Management regulations concerning CFOs. This will clarify the law for both producers and for IDEM to insure that those regulations are consistent, fair, and uniform.” She added this will eliminate confusion for regulators so they do not make arbitrary decisions regarding a farming operation. The Lt. Governor also pledged that providing broadband connectivity is something that needs to happen in all 92 Indiana counties “to drastically improve education, healthcare, economic development, and producer access to the marketplace.”Later in the meeting, ISDA Director Ted McKinney said economic development efforts by the state will continue including offering funding for expansion of pork processing units in the state.The Business meeting also featured updates on checkoff funded programs, promotion plans for 2017, awards, and the election of new Indiana Pork Board members and National Pork Board members. On Monday evening, pork producers mingled with lawmakers at the annual Taste of Elegance, an event that promotes pork and advocates for policies that benefit pork producers.

Improper behaviour towards a journalist by MEP George Becali

Politicians seem to be losing their self-control in their statements with increasing frequency, forgetting the moral obligations that go with public office and a state salary.”The two organisations added: “The declarations of financial interests made by MEPs are not only obligatory but also of public direct interest. Journalists have a duty to pose questions about these declarations and MEPs must respond in detail. The insaneness of Becali’s comments fails to conceal his desire to avoid this subject. The exact nature of his financial interests and possessions still needs to be explained.”Becali unfortunately has a habit of behaving in a curse and aggressive manner towards journalists. He insulted and threatened journalist Cristian Tudor Popescu in a café in February 2002 after Popescu wrote an article in the daily Adevarul about a controversial exchange of land with the Romanian army.He and his bodyguards insulted and hit Malonga Parfait, the host of ProTV’s sports programme Fotbal Max, on 3 November 2001 after Parfait referred to him on the air in connection with his ownership of the Steaua Bucharest football team. During the attack on Parfait, Becali said he could not allow himself to be mocked by a person of African origin.After Steaua Bucharest lost a UEFA Cup semi-final against Middlesbrough on 30 April 2006, Becali ordered his bodyguards to remove journalist Ana Maria Neagu of TV Realitatea from his sight when she asked him if he was still proud of his players. One of the bodyguards insulted her and hit her on the leg.

Covering human interest and social issues as well as creating digital content to accompany news stories. [email protected] Rescue Boxer, Collie cross Bandit enjoying a dog puzzle indoors during Covid-19 pandemic, one of many tips from Dogs Trust Ireland on how to keep your dog happy!IRELAND’S largest dog welfare charity has issued advice for dog owners who may be concerned about how to look after their dogs while at home due to the COVID-19 outbreak.The charity advises self-isolating dog owners to try to make alternative arrangements for someone to look after their dog until they feel better, so the dog can continue with their normal exercise routine.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up If that’s not possible, there are lots of ways to keep dogs happy and healthy within the comfort of their own homes.From activities involving their favourite treats and toys, to building doggy dens and treasure hunts, there are ample ways dog owners can keep their dog active, without stepping outside their front door.Karla Dunne, Head of Operations at Dogs Trust says there are a number of way to keep your dog occupied at home “such as hiding some of your dog’s favourite treats in different rooms around the house and see how quickly they manage to locate them”.Former Dogs Trust Ireland resident Chihuahua cross, Obie, keeping busy with his teddy bear Photograph: ©Fran Veale“If your dog enjoys playing, show them some love by spending time playing their favourite game with them,” she said, adding, “Why not teach your dog a new trick? We have lots of easy to follow videos on our website –”Becky Bristow, Executive Director, Dogs Trust Ireland explains, “If you are not self-isolating, the current Government guidance is that it’s okay to go outside to walk your dog, but to keep your distance from others, so you may wish to avoid popular dog walking spots.“While it is not proven that coronavirus (COVID-19) can be transmitted between humans and dogs, we would always recommend washing your hands before and after interacting with your pet, but we will continue to monitor this and take guidance from the World Health Organisation.”Dogs Trust are urgently appealing to dog lovers for their help. Like many businesses and charities, they have had to make the difficult decision to close the Rehoming Centre to the public temporarily.The group say that “your generosity will save lives” during this time of uncertainty, and ask people to donate what they can to get unwanted dogs and puppies “back on their paws again”.You can support Dogs Trust through their website.

Gap Widens Between Demand and Inventory

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily While the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the nation and brought everyday life to a near halt, the housing market remained as robust as ever this past year, with home prices rising 14.3%, new listings coming in at 27% lower, with 50% fewer homes on the market, while homes are selling nearly a week faster than last’s Housing Market Recovery Index, a measure of the pandemic’s impact on the housing market through an analysis of new listings, buyer demand, time spent on the market and home prices, stood at 101.6 for the week ending March 6, 0.5 points higher than the previous week, and 1.6 points above pre-pandemic levels.After stalling at the onset of the pandemic, listing prices posted double-digit price growth for the past 30 weeks. The gap between supply and demand was notable before the pandemic. However, one calendar year after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus a global pandemic, stay-in-place orders forced many out into the suburbs, seeking homes with greater square footage and areas to accommodate remote work situations. These events only worsened the market’s existing supply to demand imbalance.”The housing market’s lopsided momentum could ease in the coming months,” said Chief Economist Danielle Hale. “We expect the vaccine’s rollout to alleviate some sellers’ anxieties, which could help the supply crunch. At the same time, although interest rates remain low, they’ve begun to increase, which could test buyer demand in the coming months.”New listings were 27% lower than they were during the week that ended March 7, 2020. Following an uptick at the end of 2020, the first few months of 2021 have been marked by large and consistent declines in new listings. New listings traditionally increase in March and April, and the expectation is they will grow again this year, especially compared to last year when the disruptions to seller activity were largest. The lack of listings in January and February 2021, due to severe winter storms across the nation, created a gap of approximately 200,000 homes in new listings, making it necessary for new listings to come on to the market for healthy sales activity this spring.Total active inventory continues to decline, dropping 51% year-over-year in the week ended March 6. With buyers active in the market despite, or perhaps because of, the uptick in mortgage rates, homes are selling quickly—six days faster on average than a year earlier—and the total number actively available for sale at any point in time continues to decline.Bottom line, buyers need to act fast or simply be shut out. And for those who do act fast, they must be prepared to engage in bidding wars as this short supply of homes is at a premium.
