An existing old barn on the site was demolished to make way for the modern new house. In order to integrate the building into the landscape, the Vosges sandstone from the demolished barn was reused and reinterpreted in a modern context for the lower level of the house.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns aggressive behavior from Trump campaign manager

first_img News March 29, 2016 Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns aggressive behavior from Trump campaign manager Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was charged this morning with battery after an incident with journalist Michelle Fields at an event in Florida earlier this month. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reiterates its concerns about harsh and agressive treatment of the press during the US presidential election. AmericasUnited States Violence News Receive email alerts Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says June 7, 2021 Find out more This is the latest incident where Donald Trump and his campaign have made clear his disregard for freedom of the press. Previously, Donald Trump’s team has restricted media access to campaign events, he has insulted and bullied reporters who portray him negatively or ask him tough questions, and refused to participate in a republican debate because FoxNews refused to remove its reporter Megyn Kelly as a moderator.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for all candidates in the US presidential election to respect freedom of the press and cease harsh and aggressive treatment of reporters at campaign events. “We condemn this aggressive behavior from Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski,” said Delphine Halgand, RSF USA’s Director. Corey Lewandowski, campaign manager for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has been charged with simple battery following an altercation with journalist Michelle Fields on March 8, 2016. He self-surrendered to Florida police this morning. According to the police report, Lewandowski “grabbed [journalist] [Michelle] Fields’ left arm with his right hand causing her to turn and step back.” Michelle Fields, a journalist working at the time for conservative news outlet Breitbart, has shared images online of her bruised arm where she said Lewandowski grabbed her forcefully. She later said “campaign managers aren’t supposed to try to forcefully throw reporters to the ground, no matter the circumstance.”Trump’s actions during the run up to the 2016 presidential election mark an alarming trend of curtailing freedom of the press in the United States. Since 2013, the U.S.’s ranking on Reporters Without Borders’ World Press Freedom Index has fallen by 14 points. It is now ranked 49 out of 180 countries.

The Index covers single-family housing, using data provided by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.Previously, the FHFA reported in its February HPI that home prices rose 0.8 percent month-over-month. In the report, January’s former unchanged index was revised to a 0.2 percent increase.On a seasonally adjusted national level, prices are now nearly 10 percent higher than their March 2007 peak. Prices have seen a compound annual growth rate of 3.5 percent since 1991, 3.4 percent since 2000, and 6.2 percent since 2012.Out of all nine census divisions, the Mountain region saw the biggest annual increase in prices, with a 9.5 percent uptick over the year. The region includes Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico. The Pacific division—Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, and California—saw a 7.6 percent annual rise, while the Middle Atlantic—New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania—saw the least year-over-year growth with just 4.6 percent.Other Indices have been reporting similar increases, such as First American’s Real House Price Index (RHPI). The RHPI revealed that home prices have dropped by 32.8 percent since the pre-recession peak, but are still at a relative high. Real house prices rose 0.7 percent between January and February. The low inventory has meant that home prices have remained high.”The main story in most markets this spring is the lack of supply. Combined with unfaltering demand, the lack of supply continues to pressure unadjusted prices higher in one of the strongest spring sellers’ markets seen in recent memory,” said Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American.

NEWS SCAN Special Edition: MRSA in healthcare settings

first_imgMar 25, 2009 – The annual meeting of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America took place Mar 20-22 in San Diego. This News Scan Special Edition surveys a selection of the abundant research from that meeting on combating MRSA in healthcare institutions.’Positive Deviance’ makes difference in reducing MRSA ratesThree hospitals and healthcare systems in different parts of the United States significantly reduced their in-house transmission of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by mounting a multi-pronged prevention effort of active surveillance, hand hygiene, and contact precautions. A key to the program’s success was “Positive Deviance,” an organizational technique that identifies personnel who are good problem solvers and keeps their ideas from being stifled by custom and hierarchy. The trial, co-sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Plexus Institute, reduced MRSA incidence in the hospitals by up to 62%.Invasive MRSA declining, may be due to hospital control effortsA CDC analysis of data from the Active Bacterial Core surveillance system, drawn from nine sites across the United States, shows that cases of invasive hospital-onset MRSA declined 16% from 2005 to 2007. Invasive cases that were due to hospital infection, but arose after discharge, declined 8.7%. In a related survey of 134 hospitals, almost all were deploying some MRSA-prevention measures out of a generally accepted menu of seven recommended practices, though no hospital was using all seven. The reduction in invasive MRSA may be linked to hospitals’ increased efforts.MRSA control in ICU leads to reductions throughout hospitalA MRSA-prevention campaign at the Billings Clinic, a 270-bed community hospital in Billings, Mont., demonstrated that limited control efforts may have broad reach. The hospital instituted active surveillance and hand hygiene in its 22-bed ICU and saw hospital-wide MRSA incidence fall from 1.2 cases per 1,000 patient-days to 0.27 per 1,000; reductions continued for 20 months.MRSA cases in hospitals may have been acquired in communityAn analysis of patients in a large Delaware healthcare system who were newly identified as having MRSA colonization shows that the vast majority of colonizations were not acquired during the hospital stay, but were present on admission. Only 13% were acquired in-hospital, suggesting that programs aimed at stopping hospital transmission could not have prevented them, and demonstrating that the complex epidemiology of MRSA in hospital and community is likely to complicate MRSA control.Community strains causing increasing number of hospital infectionsAt Stroger Hospital, the main public hospital for downtown Chicago, the incidence of hospital-associated bloodstream infections caused by MRSA has not changed significantly over 7 years. However, the proportion of those invasive infections caused by a community-genotype MRSA strain has more than doubled, from 32% of cases in 2000-2003 to 68% in 2004-2007.last_img read more

Parents have financially stepped in becoming the fifth biggest lender to first home buyers

first_imgRay White Queensland CEO, Tony Warland said parents wanted to help secure their children’s future and they thought helping buy property could do that.Mr Warland said this could help them grow their wealth to get a more substantial deposit together to buy a home they would like to live in.”“There is nothing more rewarding than seeing children entering into their first property investment whether it be a home or investment it is wanting to secure a future for them.’’The research found the most common way that parents helped was allowing their children to live rent free in their home and contributing money toward a deposit.Some acted as a guarantor, helped with repayments or bought as a partner with their children.About 9 per cent of parents delayed their retirement in order to help their children out and 4 per cent said they would sell some assets. Kirsty Lamont of Mozo said parents realised it was hard for their children to save enough for a deposit on their own.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor1 hour agoMs Lamont said this could be because parents realised it was just too hard for young people to pull the money together to service a mortgage and pay them back.She said not all parents were contributing money but many were doing what they could to help including allowing their children to move back home rent free, so they could save.The research found 29 per cent of Australian families offered financial assistance to their children with the average amount being $64,206.“For many first home buyers, house prices around Australia can be absolutely daunting. It can take years to scrimp and save for a home deposit, all the while house prices continue to skyrocket, becoming increasingly inaccessible,’’ she said.Ray White Queensland CEO, Tony Warland said it was something he had seen in past years with families of different cultural backgrounds but now it had become more widespread.He said it wasn’t always cash but often it could be offering their own property as equity.“I would say that a lot of family members are helping their children not necessarily into homes (to live in) but also to get into an investment property.’’ Parents have become major lenders to their children trying to get into the property market.ALMOST a third of home buyers have to rely on money from their parents to buy their own home with Queensland mums and dads digging deep.According to research by financial comparison website Mozo this makes the “Bank of Mum and Dad’’ the fifth biggest mortgage lender in Australia, behind the big four banks.And it appears the Bank of Mum and Dad are a generous bunch with 67 per cent not expecting to be repaid.New research by Mozo revealed Queensland parents kicked in on average $44,694 to help their children into the property market.Nationally parents had contributed $65.3 billion to their children to buy their first property.The research asked parents how they helped their children and if they did how much they contributed.Mozo director, Kirsty Lamont, said it showed the many first home buyers were unable to independently take their first step onto the property ladder.“I think it was certainly surprising that the Bank of Mum and Dad is such a major lender in the property market,’’ she said.“I think it is really interesting that the fact that many parents don’t expect their kids to repay them financially.’’last_img read more

Burruchaga Reveals Argentina’s Russia 2018 Ambition

first_imgShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram By Duro Ikhazuagbe with agency reportFormer Argentina star, Jorge Burruchaga, has revealed that the South American nation is aiming to win her third World Cup in Russia next year.The former winger who scored Albiceleste’s winning goal in the 3-2 defeat of then West Germany at Mexico ’86, told Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, Argentina was gunning for the silverware again 31 years after. In a chat with yesterday, the Franco-German Nigerian gaffer revealed his discussions with Burruchaga at the last World Cup 2018 Draw ceremony in Moscow early this month.“I met Jorge Burruchaga at the (World Cup) draw. He told me ‘we are coming to win the World Cup,’ revealed the Eagles coach who is also aiming to make history with the three-time African champions.To show how serious the Argentines are about their ambition to win the cup in Russia, Rohr also hinted that the team’s handler Jorge Sampaoli and his crew have already secured a training base.“They have chosen a magnificent base camp and will put everything in to make it (winning the cup) happen,” Rohr stressed.To Nigerian football fans still celebrating the 4-2 defeat of the Albiceleste in an international friendly in Krasnodar, Russia, Rohr stressed that Argentina is not the same team without Messi. “We will not make the mistake of thinking that we already know them (Argentina).“We beat them in friendly Krasnodar last month, but Argentina played without Lionel Messi. And Argentina without Messi, it’s not the same team.“They let in four goals, they may not have changed much defensively, but offensively they can change everything.“Argentina are still vice-champions of the world, and had not passed away from the coronation in 2014,” concludes the coach.Like in the previous three World Cups, the two teams will clash again in the last Group D match after the matches against Croatia and Iceland.Incidentally, Messi has featured five times in matches against Nigeria, but has only scored in two of such games.The first was at the 2005 Under-20 FIFA World Cup in Holland when his two penalty- kick goals sealed a 2-1 victory against Nigeria in the final.At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Messi scored twice in the 3-2 win over a turbo-charged Super Eagles in Porto Alegre.He fired blanks in other games against Eagles. The first was the final match of the 2008 Olympics Games in Beijing. He also followed up the no-show against Nigeria at the 2010 World Cup group game in South Africa and the friendly match in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2011.last_img read more

Lampard makes sentimental return as Chelsea change tack

first_imgFrank Lampard at Chelsea. photo via @ChelseaFCLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Frank Lampard has accepted the challenge of taking over Chelsea just one year into his managerial career as the return of the club’s record goalscorer to Stamford Bridge was confirmed on Thursday.Chelsea’s latest managerial search following Maurizio Sarri’s move to Juventus has seen a change of tack, with sentiment backed over a stellar coaching CV.In response to Sarri’s sour relationship with the Chelsea support, Roman Abramovich has turned to a fans’ favourite to ease the Londoners through what could be a difficult season of transition.That decision is a risky one for both. Lampard lacks experience and could see his burgeoning reputation as a coach burned at a club where no manager has lasted long under Abramovich.However, his appointment hints at a change of approach by the Blues.Lampard’s one campaign at Derby led the Rams to the brink of a return to the Premier League, only to fall short in the Championship play-off final against Aston Villa.But his season in England’s second tier showed a willingness and ability to develop young players, including some of Chelsea’s academy products, that made him a perfect fit for the current state of affairs at Stamford Bridge.– Midfield goal machine –As a player, Lampard joined Chelsea just before the wave of Abramovich investment swept the club into its most successful era.He scored an incredible 211 goals from midfield and won three Premier League titles, the Champions League and Europa League among a 13-trophy haul.Yet Chelsea are no longer the Premier League’s big spenders.Abramovich’s interest has wained since his UK visa was not renewed last year and even the riches of a Russian billionaire have been overtaken by Abu Dhabi’s backing of Manchester City.Indeed, it is unlikely Chelsea will be able to spend anything on new recruits this summer as they serve a two-window transfer ban.And their best player of recent times has also gone after Eden Hazard completed a 100-million euro ($114 million) move to Real Madrid. The transfer ban, coupled with the loss of Hazard, should temper expectations and presents an opportunity for the kind of culture change the club’s hierarchy have wanted for some time.John Terry, who made his debut in 1998, remains the last Chelsea academy graduate to become a first team regular.Lampard used his Chelsea contacts to take Fikayo Tomori and Mason Mount on loan at Derby last season where both excelled.Other returning loanees such as Tammy Abraham and Reece James are also expected to get their chance as Chelsea plug the gaps in their squad.“The transfer ban is probably not what the club wanted but for us it is exciting,” said Abraham when playing for England at the recent European under-21 championship.“There will never be a better time to play the youngsters. This year is the most important year for us. It is now or never.”Should Chelsea’s youth finally be given a chance, 19-year-old England international Callum Hudson-Odoi might also be more likely to extend his contract beyond 2020, despite interest from Bayern Munich.Lampard’s assistant, Jody Morris, also has extensive knowledge of the Chelsea youth system, having been a key figure at the club’s academy prior to joining Lampard at Derby last summer.Petr Cech, another familiar face of Chelsea’s rise under Abramovich, has been appointed the new technical and performance advisor.Chelsea described one of the former goalkeeper’s primary tasks as to “facilitate strong links between our men’s and academy teams.”However, the history of Abramovich’s time in charge suggests patience is not one of his virtues.Chelsea finished 26 points behind City last season and only stumbled into the top four thanks to the faltering form of Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United.Without Hazard, Lampard and a young squad will need time to rebuild. Whether Abramovich will for once be happy to forgo instant success for a longer term approach remains to be seen.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
