The 15-storey Montevetro development was completed in January, and is down the road from Google’s existing Irish office on Barrow Street. Real Estate Opportunities, which built the tower, arranged a loan from NAMA to help complete the project after running out of cash. NAMA also took on loans backed by the property during the credit crisis, but said yesterday it is set to claw back more than the amount it paid for the assets. “The successful completion of the Montevetro development and its sale again reflect the positive potential of Nama to support the commercial property market in Ireland without compromising its objective of recovering monies owed to the taxpayer,” said Nama chairman Frank Daly. Google said it will use the building to rehouse some of its Irish employees, who have outgrown the existing Barrow Street office. “Acquiring Montevetro also means we have the space and flexibility to support our future operations,” said Google’s head of Ireland, John Herlihy.

Tennessee House passes sports betting bill to Governor

first_img Tennessee House passes sports betting bill to Governor Topics: Legal & compliance Sports betting The Tennessee House of Representatives has passed a bill that would legalise sports betting in the state to Governor Bill Lee, with local media reporting that he will allow the bill to pass into law without signature. Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter 1st May 2019 | By contenteditorcenter_img The Tennessee House of Representatives has passed a bill that would legalise sports betting in the state to Governor Bill Lee, with local media reporting that he will allow the bill to pass into law without signature.SB0016 cleared the House by a vote of 51-40 shortly after also passing through the state Senate by a vote of 20-12, following a number of amendments.The bill replaced a previous version (HB0001) that passed the House last week and the House has now agreed with the new amendments made by the Senate.Governor Lee (pictured) has been outspoken about his opposition to plans to legalise sports betting, but it is reported that he will allow the bill to pass into law despite his own concerns.When contacted about the reports, Lee’s office directed iGamingBusiness.com to a local media publication that included comments from Lee’s press secretary, Laine Arnold, suggesting that this will be the case.“The governor has said he does not believe that the expansion of gambling is best, but he recognises that many in the legislature found this to be an issue they want to explore further,” Arnold, said, according to the Tennessean. “He plans to let this become law without his signature.”SB0016 includes provisions for wagering via kiosks and interactive wagering. As set out in one of three Senate amendments, operators will have to pay $50,000 (£38,250/€44,530) to apply for a licence and $750,000 to secure the permit.The sports betting tax rate would be set at 20%, down from the 22.5% that the House had originally proposed.Operators would only be permitted to use official data from sports leagues when offering betting services. The only exception would be if a licensee could prove the governing body of a sport or sports league, organisation, or association could not provide a feed of official league data for live betting “in accordance with commercially reasonable terms, as determined by the board”.Professional sports leagues would also have the ability to request that betting or certain types of wagering on select events be prohibited. Such a request can only be made if there is clear reason that betting would be “contrary to public policy, unfair to consumers, or affects the integrity of a particular sport or the sports betting industry”.Should the bill pass into law as expected, it would become effect from July 1 this year.Image: Wat2018 Regions: US Tennessee Legal & compliance Email Addresslast_img read more

Orange County revises its trash removal schedule

first_img Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom From the Orange County Communications OfficeHousehold garbage, recycling and regular yard waste (three cubic yards – about the size of a small pickup truck) are continuing to be picked up by Solid Waste on regular scheduled days. Due to volume of yard waste, crews are running a few days behind, but are working extended hours and Saturday to catch up.Important notes:Residents should move their vegetative debris to the curb now for pick up by our debris contractors.  Please separate vegetative debris (tree limbs, branches, shrubs) – all should NOT be bagged. If you have leaves, we ask that residents bag them and    have them be picked up with yard waste. Debris pick-up cannot have anything in bags. DO NOT block fire hydrants, storm drains and mailboxes with debris.Do not mix garbage and construction debris with vegetative debris. Construction material such as fencing, shingles and lumber should be a separate pile and will be collected at a later date.Orange County is anticipating completing debris pick–up in eight weeks – however, there is not a definitive end date as of now and this is a fluid situation.We still have 11 debris sites open 7 days per week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. We plan to continue to stay open and do not have a closing date yet.Any resident from Orange County (including from municipalities) can drop off at any of our 11 debris sites.So far, we have had 13,000 cubic yards of debris collected at our 11 debris drop-off sites.Orange County Public Works estimates that there will be 1.3 million cubic yards of debris pick-up.Do NOT put debris in the roadway (it can get into drainage) and sidewalk (children have to walk to school).As Orange County continues recovery efforts after Hurricane Irma, it is important for residents to be informed on debris removal.CITIZEN DROP-OFF-SITESResidents are encouraged to take debris to a citizen site designated by Orange County. Eleven (11) citizen drop-off sites are open in Orange County. Residents of Orange County may bring vegetative (trees/yard waste) debris to any locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Sunday. Residents will need to provide proof of Orange County address to gain access. Debris drop-off sites are:Barnett Park – 4801 W Colonial Dr.Conway Water Treatment Plant – 3590 Manatee St.Cypress Grove Park – 290 Holden Ave.Fort Christmas Park -1300 Fort Christmas Rd.Harrell Road – 8503 Trevarthon Rd.Meadow Woods Park – 1751 Rhode Island Woods Cir.Northwest Water Reclamation Facility – 701 W McCormick Rd.Rose Place Park – 8200 Old Winter Garden Rd.Across from Renaissance Senior Center – 3800 S. Econlockhatchee Tr.West Beach Park Addition – 9227 Winter Garden Vineland Rd.Zellwood Maintenance Unit – 3500 Golden Gem Rd. Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 TAGSOrange CountyTrash Pickup Previous articleIf we lose, you loseNext articleCounty, state and federal government working on post-hurricane recovery Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 CURBSIDE DEBRIS REMOVALView the current curbside debris removal map. This map will be updated weekly. Last updated Sept. 20, 2017. Curbside debris removal has already started in Orange County. However, the volume of yard debris throughout the county is very large, so please keep in mind that it may be several days before a debris team arrives in your community. It is the county’s intent to serve the community in a well-organized manner.PRIVATE GATED COMMUNITIESCounty contractors cannot enter private gated communities for debris removal, except in cases of critical life/safety emergencies. For gated communities, an authorized community representative should contact 311 to arrange for permission for the community’s contractor to drop off debris at a designated Citizen Drop-Off Site. In the alternative, the community representative can arrange for a County debris contractor to meet the community’s contractor at or near the entrance to the gated community, to accept debris.If residents within a community do not own the property, such as a trailer park, manufactured home community or condominium building, the community is not eligible to participate in this program. These communities are considered commercial and must arrange for their own debris removal.Visit www.ocfl.net/debris for more information. Follow Orange County Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Division on NextDoor.com.NO MIXED DEBRISIn either case, vegetative storm debris (tree limbs, branches, and other organic debris) should always be separated from storm-related construction debris (shingles, fencing, lumber, drywall, etc.) Mixed debris will not be accepted at Drop-Off Sites, and for curbside removal, construction debris will be collected separately, and if not separated, neither may be picked up. Also, household garbage should NEVER be mixed with storm or construction debris.PRIVATE PROPERTYDebris will only be removed from private property only in the case of severe damage, per the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) policy. If the debris is an immediate threat to residents, State or local government may enter private property to remove debris to eliminate threats to life, public health and safety.Information will be on the Orange County website at www.ocfl.net/debris and residents can call 3-1-1 as well. This map will be updated weekly. Please note that debris pick-up is only for residents in unincorporated Orange County.

The project derives from a parallel study mandate SIA 143 won by Aeby Perneger & Associés through the Cooperative Les Ailes. The building is inserted in the urban plan of the eco-quartier of Verges, with the role to highlight one of the gateways of the quartier and complete a series of towers along the Napoleonic route that leads from Geneva to Saint-Genis-Pouilly though the CERN.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThe volume to construct counts 11 floors above ground, placed on a 2-storey basement, with a total of 13 levels inscribed in a 22×45 m rectangle. Following the wish of the cooperative, the program of the building is mixed: 22 dwellings for elders provided with welcome facilities for the neighborhood, about 75 family dwellings, medical practices, offices and businesses, also including a small supermarket and a restaurant.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThe project states a particular presence at the entrance of the quartier of Verges. The building is both multiple and unique, its border not clearly closed, its gaze turned toward the sky. Composed of an horizontal plateau and wrinkled edges, it stacks different floor shapes in a roughly coherent ensemble. Because of its sufficiently elongated volume, it does not try to appear as proper tower despite its pseudonym (C3 Tower), but rather a sort of millefeuilles, stratification. The cut of the smooth balconies give it an airy character that evokes the founders of the cooperative, Swissair’s employees. The mixture of the allocations and the dimensional heterogeneity of the housing program has naturally opened a reflection on the distributive typology of the building, keeping in mind the remarkable memory of Le Corbusier’s Unité d’habitation in Marseille.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThe corridors of the central distribution have appropriate clearances and waiting benches, every doorway is marked with an individual style. In the lower floors, a communal staircase opens by facing the summit of the nearby Jura Mountains and connects the two levels of the basement to the office floor. The building opens all the premises with a panoramic overlook – a long, continuous window. Each apartment benefits from an individual loggia in the shape of a rhombus, truly an additional exterior room, that relates the horizon in a kaleidoscopic manner avoiding any frontality. The wrinkles in the facade contribute to provide a real light quality that reaches the centre of the floorplan.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!ElevationThe materials are raw or semi-raw: exposed reinforced concrete for the structure, parapets of the facade made of finely-striated, precast natural concrete that softens the light like a corduroy, windows and light parts in powder-coated aluminum, interior screeds of communal hallways in terrazzo, doors and flooring in oak. The average gross surface for each OCLPF is 25 m2.Save this picture!© Giorgio MarafiotiThanks to a very low return rate applied by the cooperative, the resulting rents are extremely moderate. With regard to exterior expression, the building of Ailes is difficult to date. The dynamic wrinkling of its façade is balanced by the soothing character of the materials used (natural striated concrete, dark aluminum and glass) and by calm horizontality of the composition.  This gives a particular vis-à-vis status to the neighborhood, slightly apart, halfway between the ancestor and the outside observer.

The Atlas House is situated on the edge of the city of Eindhoven, opposite a historic rural estate. The compact square building manifests itself as a tower. It is rotated 45 degrees relative to the street and is detached from the boundaries of the plot. All windows are grouped around the corners and at times allow for diagonal views through the volume. Internally, the rotation provides striking vistas along the edges of the forest. The depth of the façade openings reveals that the size and colour of the bricks is the same both inside and outside. These define the character of the raw and restrained interior. The external facades offer no clues about the playful offsets of the internal spaces. The interior reveals a collection of rooms of various heights and floor levels, each giving their respective window openings specific characteristics.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertOn this modest plot size, a spacious residence had to be combined with the clients wish for a garden. Therefore, the footprint of the house is minimized within the given building height, resulting in a vertically organized program. Due to the proximity of the houses in the neighbourhood, the amount of privacy in the garden is limited. Hence, the tower-like structure offers a roof terrace with maximum privacy where one can dwell between the treetops.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Stijn BollaertThe Atlas House is built with large types of red bricks, both inside and outside. For the facades, a striking brushed form of pointing is used, creating a strong graphical pattern. Across the volume, the facades contain decorations that refer to the Dutch Neo-Renaissance tradition of enriching ordinary brickwork with plaster, suggesting architectural elements like keystones and tympans. The upper part of the building is finished with a light-colored layer of cement, distinguishing the classical plinth from the more lightweight top. The slightly lifted corners of the roof further emphasize this theme, bringing Atlas to mind, the Greek mythological figure that carries the sky on his shoulders for eternity.Save this picture!© Stijn BollaertOriginally published on April 03, 2017. Project gallerySee allShow lessSangini House / Urbanscape Architects + Utopia DesignsSelected ProjectsMango Bay Resort Spa / P.I ArchitectsSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

New collection of George Smith’s columns on direct marketing published

Subsequently he served as chief executive of the International Fund Raising Group (now Resource Alliance) between 1987 and 1993 and was appointed chairman of the UK’s Institute of Direct Marketing in 1997. He is an honorary fellow both of the IDM and the Institute of Fundraising, the only person to date to have been given both honours.His monthly articles in Direct Response magazine were published in 1987 as a collection called ‘By George’, but the new book covers a much wider range of his writings over three decades.Drayton Bird, author of ‘Commonsense Direct Marketing’, says of Smith’s new book: “What George has written made sense when he wrote it, makes sense now, and will make sense 50 years from now to those who have the good fortune to come across this collection.”George Smith is also author of Asking Properly and Tiny Essentials of Writing for Fundraising, both published by White Lion Publishing.Ken Burnett, owner of White Lion Publishing, said: “Many of these pieces are as relevant, or irrelevant, as they were at the time of writing. Others have been included for sheer curiosity value, or just because we like them. We think there are some real gems here…”Up Smith Creek costs £12.95 +postage and packing from White Lion Press.www.whitelionpress.com/UpSmithCreek.html AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Individual giving About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Senators Eye Changes to Ag Committee Farm Bill By Andy Eubank – May 14, 2012 Senators Eye Changes to Ag Committee Farm Bill Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn will try to amend the Senate Agriculture Committee’s farm bill in order to cap crop insurance premium subsidies. It’s been reported that Coburn’s spokeswoman says the Senator is hopeful the Senate will engage in debate and vote on amendments to the measure that would include the Government Accountability Office’s recommendations and save taxpayers one-billion dollars. According to the GAO – that would be the annual savings from a 40-thousand dollar cap. The GAO has also said USDA’s data mining program could be improved with better coordination between the Farm Service Agency, Risk Management Agency and insurance companies.Coburn – along with Senator Dick Durbin – have told the leaders of the Senate Ag Committee that they support further reforms to the federal crop insurance program that would be consistent with the GAO’s findings and recommendations. Coburn and Durbin further stated that further investigation into the efficacy of reducing premium subsidies is warranted. As for those who say crop insurance programs have been cut enough already – Coburn and Durbin say further reductions do not reflect opposition to the program. Instead – they say it’s critical to make good programs better to ensure they’re performing as intended and are fiscally sound taxpayer investments.David Graves of the American Association of Crop Insurers says the same types of questions about crop insurance have been raised for over 30 years – and during that time – Congress has expanded the role of federal crop insurance. He says all farmers are subject to forces they can’t control – and it’s important that all farmers have an opportunity to participate in a program that helps them with those risk factors that are beyond their control.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleCorn and Bean Planting Near a Month Ahead of Year AgoNext articleSE Indiana Catching Up On Planting Andy Eubank Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
