Located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, this project involves a complete renovation and substantial addition to a familiar, simply massed brick “colonial”. The original, gable shaped volume fronting the street is minimally altered in an effort to retain the scale and massing of neighboring houses. Tall windows are incorporated into the existing façade. A copper clad, vaulted volume is integrated into the composition with a new front porch and wide stairs, invoking the nostalgic porches found throughout the neighborhood.Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerTo reduce the massing as seen from the street, the majority of new space is added to the back of the house. Living spaces are relocated to the “garden” side of the property, away from the street. Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerA new terrace and rigorously designed landscape elements, including walkways, walls and plantings become an integral part of the design. A garden structure, constructed of dry-stacked stone, mahogany, steel and copper roofing anchors the composition and provides privacy from adjoining properties. The entirety of the lot is incorporated into the design of this project. Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerThe light filled interiors are ordered and open, crisply detailed and minimal while retaining richness and warmth. Quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry and millwork, dark stained oak flooring, and mahogany screens are combined with travertine, black granite and limestone to comprise the majority of the material palette. Furnishings are selected to be harmonious with finishes and spatial composition. Save this picture!© Maxwell MacKenzie Architectural PhotographerToday, too many houses are immediately discarded and demolished in favor of inflated, poorly detailed, badly massed structures that overwhelm their sites. This project demonstrates an attempt to provide the spatial requirements desired for a current lifestyle in a manner that retains much of the existing building fabric and a significant amount of the site to incorporate landscape and garden.Save this picture!Floor PlansProject gallerySee allShow lessBusan Opera House Proposal / WEAVA ArchitectsArticlesThe Grove / Debartolo ArchitectsArticles Share Houses 2009 Projects United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/160001/peterson-residence-robert-gurney-architect Clipboard CopyHouses, Renovation•Chevy Chase, United States CopyAbout this officeRobert Gurney ArchitectOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationResidentialHousesChevy ChaseUnited StatesPublished on August 21, 2011Cite: “Peterson Residence / Robert Gurney Architect” 21 Aug 2011.

Brock Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Economy: Recovery From Great Recession ‘Largely Uneven’ Economy: Recovery From Great Recession ‘Largely Uneven’ While many seem to be looking forward, trying to determine when another recession will upend our nation’s economy, others seem to be glancing back wondering if we ever fully recovered from the Great Recession that sent shockwaves across the nation in 2008. Foreclosure rates have been wallowing at impressive lows for some time. ATTOM Data Solutions reported the national foreclosure rate last year was 0.36%. However, some feel the housing market has never fully emerged from that housing crisis. One market expert says we’re just now seeing “some signs that America’s housing crisis might be starting to abate.” Ben Wilterdink, Director of Programs at the Archbridge Institute, a think tank based in Washington, D.C., said in an article in The Hill, “The nation as a whole has largely recovered from the financial crisis. But the recovery has been deeply geographically uneven, with urban areas experiencing high levels of population growth and new business formation while rural areas remain much more economically stagnant.” Wilterdink pointed to data from the Economic Innovation Group demonstrating that more populous counties as well as counties that were already more prosperous have accounted for much of the “recovery” we’ve seen. In fact, the Economic Innovation Group says, “Were it not for prosperous zip codes, the country would still be several years away from a full employment recovery.” The most prosperous ZIP codes have millions more jobs than they did in 2007, while “distressed” ZIP codes “are unlikely to ever recover on current trendlines,” the research group said. Naturally, housing costs rose in those areas that experienced booming jobs and growing populations, and the rising prices have been and still are exacerbated by zoning laws and regulations that limit and deter new home construction. The lower-cost urban areas often have little to offer in the way of employment opportunities, and as Wilterdink points out, the effects also extend to educational opportunities. The median home price for ZIP codes that have the highest quality public elementary schools is $486,104, more than four times the median home price in ZIP codes with the lowest ranked public elementary schools, according to data from the Joint Economic Committee’s Social Capital Project. “Ultimately, the lack of affordable housing across much of the country is a problem from which America can only build its way out,” Wilterdink said. He added, “A functioning housing market where supply is allowed to meet demand is still a ways off,” he is reading optimism in a few recent developments. For example, the Department of Housing and Urban Development updated the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule to scale back restrictions on federal funding and encourage more housing construction. Also, California has taken steps to discourage restrictive zoning rules and allow homeowners to build accessory dwelling units on their lots. Wilterdink says other states are following suit.  Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

It is for him to do so. However, as a State such a request is not feasible for consideration”, the High Court observed.”The preamble of the Constitution emphasizes on the secular nature of the Country. Seeking a declaration, as sought for, would cause damage to the very fibre of the federal and secular nature of this great Nation. The petitioner may have a justifiable reason to treat Lord Murugaas the Lord of the Tamil Language. It is for him to do so. However, as a State such a request is not feasible for consideration”. A division bench comprising Justices MM Sundresh and S Ananthi observed that Tamil literature has been enriched by works praising Hindu Gods. But “seeking to declare one God as the sole representative of the Tamil language would mean that other literary writings in praise of Gods other than Lord Muruga cannot be recognised.”The petitioner, a lawyer named Thirumurugan, had referred to a statement purportedly made by the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister to the effect that he old literatures only recognized Lord Muruga identifying himself as the Tamil God.However, the Court said that the statement of the Chief Minister has to be understood in the context of declaring a public holiday for Thaipoosam. Even otherwise, no reliance can be placed on the statement, the court added.”Tamil Language has been enriched by the contribution of various literary personalities. Language has been developed by the praise of God. Hinduism has got its Gods. Seeking to declare one God as the sole representative of the Tamil Language would mean that other literary writings in praise of Gods other than Lord Muruga cannot be recognized. In such view of the matter, the writ petition is not entertained,” the Court said while dismissing the petition.(Cover image from here)Click here to read/download the judgmentNext Storylast_img read more

The clouds broke and the sun came out early to provide a near-perfect weather day for the Brundidge Business Association’s annual arts and crafts festival.“Saturday turned out to be a great day for SpringFest but, because of the early morning rain, a lot of our vendors didn’t show up,” said Dixie Shehane, event coordinator. “Evidently, they thought SpringFest had been cancelled. But the vendors who came said they had a good day and they were happy. We appreciate the vendors who came and made SpringFest 2017 a success and all of those who came out in support of these vendors and our community.“Brundidge is a unique town, — a main street town – with caring and loving people.

Six Louisville officers under internal investigation over Breonna Taylor’s death

first_imgBreonna Taylor FamilyBy IVAN PEREIRA AND STEPHANIE WASH, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Six Louisville Metro Police officers are under an internal investigation into their actions related to the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor, a police spokesman told ABC News.The department’s Professional Standards Unit has begun its probe into Det. Myles Cosgrove and Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, who fired their weapons into Taylor’s apartment on March 13; Det. Joshua Jaynes, who sought the search warrant for her apartment; and Det. Tony James, Det. Michael Campbell and Det. Michael Nobles, according to spokesman Sgt. Lamont Washington.Internal investigators will see if the officers violated any police policies during the incident, the spokesman said. Disciplinary action could include written reprimand and extend all the way up to termination, according to Washington.Taylor, 26, and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were sleeping inside their Louisville apartment when three plainclothes officers — Mattingly, Cosgrove and Det. Brett Hankison — attempted to execute a “no-knock” search warrant. The officers were investigating a suspected drug operation linked to Taylor’s ex-boyfriend.Walker said he received no response from the other side of the door when he called out after the officers rammed the door.Walker took his licensed firearm and shot at the door, and the officers returned fire, striking Taylor eight times and killing her in her sleep, according to investigators. No drugs or drug money were found in the apartment, investigators said.Taylor’s death has sparked nationwide protests against police violence targeting minorities and strong calls for the officers to be charged.The officers were placed on administrative duty following the incident, and Hankison was fired. The incident is currently under investigation by state Attorney General Daniel Cameron.Cameron has not given a timetable for when he will reveal the findings of the investigation, but the police are already preparing for it.Louisville Metro Police Chief Robert J. Schroeder issued a state of emergency for his department Monday in anticipation of an update on the state investigation.In two memos sent to officers, Schroeder said the department will be increasing its staffing ahead of Cameron’s pending announcement.All requests by officers for time off and vacation will be canceled, according to the memo.“To ensure we have the appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services and our policing functions, effective immediately the LMPD will operate under the emergency staffing and reporting guidelines,” Schroeder wrote in his memo.On Sept. 15, the city of Louisville reached a $12 million settlement with Taylor’s family, who filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the police. The settlement included a commitment by the city to institute police reforms.ABC News’ Josh Hoyos contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Campaign to focus on diabetes identification

first_imgDiet and lack of exercise can severely exacerbate thecondition. The report published at the launch of the campaign comparespopular misconceptions with the facts. Around half of people newly diagnosedwith Type 2 diabetes already have early signs of complications. It adds,”All types of diabetes are serious progressive conditions with potentiallydevastating complications.” Less than half of the general public realise that death canresult from the condition and only one quarter know that diabetes can lead toheart disease. The condition causes a two to three-fold increased risk ofcoronary heart disease in men and a four to five fold increased risk inpre-menopausal women.
