The design team set out to restore the home’s midcentury elements back to their original intent, while also integrating some of the firm’s own modern details.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiOriginally, the two floors of the home were mirrored, which was a common architectural approach in the 1950s. For this reason, SHED did not make any major structural changes but instead updated the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms to better align with the family’s living patterns.Save this picture!First floor planOn the main floor, the unifying strut provided lateral strength and a datum line that organized different passageways from the entry to the kitchen. The kitchen was updated with Maroon laminate cabinets from Beech Tree Woodworks because the homeowners wanted a pop of color. The hardwood floors see in the living room and dining room is original as well as the green slate floor in the entry but flooring was replaced elsewhere in the house.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiThe master suite, originally two bedrooms, was modified by transforming one of the bedrooms into the master bath, which features a floating vanity and open shower. The homeowners wanted a powder room on the main floor but there were space limitations so SHED created a separate toilet compartment off the master bath to serve both uses. Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiOn the ground floor, SHED modified the entry from the garage and created a dedicated mud room using a wood screen (designed in house) to separate the flex/bonus space from the entry without inhibiting light. They also transformed an old tool shed into a pool—one of the homeowner’s goals—which was challenging due to the limited footprint.Save this picture!© Rafael SoldiProject gallerySee allShow lessEling Residences / Safdie ArchitectsSelected ProjectsBarangaroo House / Collins and TurnerSelected Projects Share Hillside Midcentury / SHED Architecture & DesignSave this projectSaveHillside Midcentury / SHED Architecture & Design Ambrose Construction Hillside Midcentury / SHED Architecture & Design Save this picture!© Rafael Soldi+ 22Curated by Fernanda Castro Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/899696/hillside-midcentury-shed-architecture-and-design Clipboard Architects: SHED Architecture & Design Area Area of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeSHED Architecture & DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationSeattleUnited StatesPublished on August 08, 2018Cite: “Hillside Midcentury / SHED Architecture & Design” 08 Aug 2018.

Single taxi medallion loan sale not in best interest of CUs, members

first_img continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr NCUA selling its portfolio of taxi medallion loans is not an appropriate step at this time, CUNA and three League partners wrote to NCUA, as it may harm not only the credit unions holding taxi medallion loans but ultimately all federally insured credit unions due to the effect on the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.“We urge the NCUA to refrain from such a sale and to instead engage with CUNA, the state leagues, and credit unions—both those directly and indirectly involved. Such collaboration could bring about a more creative solution than simply selling the entire loan portfolio to a single investor at a significant loss,” the letter reads. “While such a sale may be the quickest and easiest approach for the agency, it is not in the best interest of credit unions and their members, including borrowers who took out loans to obtain taxi medallions.”The signatories–CUNA, the CrossState Credit Union Association, the Illinois Credit Union League, and the New York Credit Union Association–urged NCUA to refrain from selling its entire taxi medallion loan portfolio to for-profit debt buyers for several reasons:Selling to a single investor, while quickest and easiest for the agency, would almost certainly result in a lower sale price, which would have a direct impact on the Share Insurance Fund;last_img read more

Gold Coast house has a claw-foot bath in its backyard

first_imgThe house has been partially renovated. RE/MAX Regency agent Charl Louw, who is marketing the property with Augusta Swayn, said the bathtub was purchased to be used in the renovation. But after not being able to complete the updates, the owner placed it in the backyard as a quirky, last minute addition. “It was an impromptu decision,” Mr Louw said. “He bought that for the second bathroom but time hasn’t been on their side.“It’s there as a piece, the next owners can use it there and connect it or use it in the bathroom if they convert it.” Mr Louw said the renovations had been completed except for the second bathroom, where the bath would have gone. “He converted a three bedroom, one bathroom to a five-bedroom house with a new kitchen and impressive outside area — it’s a real stunner in Mudgeeraba.” Brick features walls are on show throughout. The claw-foot bathtub standing in all its glory. Buyers keen to bathe in their backyard surrounded by nature need look no further than this recently renovated Mudgeeraba property. The five-bedroom house at 168 Wallandra Rd has a large yard with a covered entertainment area and plenty of grass, plus the freestanding bathtub in the middle. Unfortunately the bath isn’t connected to water, so filling it up might take a while but could prove handy for a number of things — an ice bucket when hosting guests or a spot to wash the dog, maybe?

LMC bans Heartland FC from signing new players, fines club N13.5m

first_imgRelatedPosts Ahead 2020/21 season: LMC fixes date for Club Licensing application For punching me, I’ll get Cubana Chief Priest arrested – Female Staff Dana Air increases flights to Abuja The League Management Company on Thursday said it has banned Heartland Football Club of Owerri from signing new players for the next two registration periods. It said in a statement by Harry Iwuala, its Head of Special Projects, that the ban would be in place until the club complied with its ruling on separate complaints against it. Two former players of the club, Maduabuchi Okereke and Fatunwase Alfred Olusegun, had laid complaints of unlawful termination of contract and indebtedness. Maduabuchi and Fatunwase had in separate petitions to the LMC dated November 5, 2019 claimed overdue payables, wrongful termination of contract and compensation. While Maduabuchi laid claims for a total of N10.4 million, Fatunwase asked for a total of N6.25 million. In its ruling communicated to Heartland FC on Monday, the LMC noted that the club failed to respond to the claims of the players. It said: “This was in spite of having been invited by the LMC to state its case through a letter dated January 28, 2020.” The LMC, who are the organisers of the Nigeria Professional Football League, said the players and the club did execute separate employment contracts (in the form of the NPFL Standard Player Contract). It said: “The duration of this was November 10, 2018 to November 9, 2021.” The league organisers said they rejected a letter of clearance purportedly issued the players by Heartland FC on August 28, 2019 and which was simply addressed: “To whom it may concern.” It added: “The clearance letter purported that it was issued at the request of the players following which they were released with no further financial obligations from the club towards them.” In rejecting the clearance letter issued the players, the LMC stated that a “contract or agreement” must be signed or executed by each party to the said agreement. It said: “The fact that the clearance letter was signed only by the club through its General Manager indicates that it cannot be deemed to be an agreement that binds the player.” It further found that the players sent separate default notices to the club on September 30, 2019, giving a deadline of 14 days for payment of the claims. The LMC then ruled that the improper release or clearance letter issued by the Club strengthened the players’ claims of wrongful termination. It went on to say: “As a result of the failure of the club to respond to the allegations, we are constrained to determine the case on the strength of the available evidence.” Heartland FC was then ordered to pay Maduabuchi N7.2 million, representing the remaining two years of his three-year contract. It is to also pay N900,000 being unpaid arrears of three months consolidated salary stipulated in the contract before it was wrongfully terminated by the club. The LMC added: “Fatunwase was awarded N4.8 million, representing the remaining two years of his three-year contract, and N600,000 also, being unpaid arrears of three months consolidated salary as stipulated in the contract before it was wrongfully terminated by the club.” Iwuala said the ruling sent to Heartland FC and the petitioners further stated thus: “Consequently, pursuant to Rule B9.45.4, the club is banned from registering any new players in the next two entire and consecutive registration periods.” It however noted that this was provided that the ban would be lifted immediately upon confirmation that the payables overdue towards the players were paid. “If at the end of the period of the ban, the sums mentioned in 19a and 19b above are not paid, the matter shall be duly reviewed,” the LMC warned.Tags: Fatunwase Alfred OlusegunHarry IwualaLeague Management CompanyOwerrilast_img read more

first_imgLiverpool boss Klopp explains holding back Naby Keitaby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has explained holding back Naby Keita in recent games.Klopp admits the midfielder should be doing better.He said, “With Naby, and I spoke to him, everything is fine and I am completely happy. Could he be a bit more confident in the games? Yes. Is he exactly the player [he was] in his best time at Leipzig? No, but he’s still adapting, that’s how it is. “But everybody saw it how brilliant he played in the first part [of the season]. Tottenham was a fantastic game of him without thinking too much, and then we made a change I think around the PSG game and the boys have to deal with it. Then a little injury here, a little injury there and it was kind of a little setback.”But he is a fantastic player and I’m really happy to have him here. It’s so good and I am really looking forward to our common future because see if you see it every day, wow, there is so much to come and so much influence he can have on each game, so that’s all good. “No, there was no reason [for him not playing recently], just because other boys were in good shape as well. It was a bit about positioning, a bit about system and all that stuff. That’s how football decisions are. There is really, really no doubt about the boy, he is an outstanding player.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Loblaw to merge Shoppers Optimum and PC Plus loyalty programs in February

first_imgCustomers at Shoppers Drug Mart or any of Loblaw Companies Ltd.’s grocery stores will soon use a new, unified loyalty program that replaces Optimum and PC Plus points.Loblaw (TSX:L) will merge the two programs starting Feb. 1, 2018 under the name PC Optimum — a long-anticipated move that comes more than three years after the grocery giant acquired the pharmacy chain and its in-house Shopper Optimum system.“We’re bringing the very best of Shoppers Optimum and PC Plus together,” said Uwe Stueckmann, senior vice president of marketing.PC Optimum is “the future of loyalty programs for Loblaw companies,” he said, “harnessing both the power of PC Plus and Shoppers Optimum across the unified network of our stores coast to coast.”For the company, the merger creates a more efficient and unified data collection system to gather insights to better target customers, an increasingly important tool for grocers in a highly competitive market.Consumers can keep collecting points as usual until Feb. 1 next year when their Optimum and/or Plus points will move to the new program at equal value. If a collector has $100 worth of Optimum points, they will receive $100 worth of PC Optimum points, for example.In Quebec, where Shoppers Drug Mart operates under the Pharmaprix name, the Pharmaprix Optimum program will end on Jan. 31, 2018 and members will have until May 2 that year to redeem their points or convert them at equal value to the new program.Collectors will then use a single card or app and continue to earn points on money spent at Shoppers. They’ll also be able to earn points through personalized offers and in-store promotions at all stores, and by using the President’s Choice Financial MasterCard.The new program will have an easy to remember redemption system — with 10,000 points valued at $10, 20,000 points at $20 and so on to a maximum single transaction redemption of $500. Shoppers can use their reward money at any of Loblaw’s nearly 2,500 stores and the company’s websites.Consumers will earn 50 per cent more points for almost every dollar spent at Shoppers Drug Mart locations to help account for the higher number of points needed for each redemption level. Under the current Optimum program, collectors earn 10 points for every $1 spent, but need 2,000 fewer points to buy $10 worth of goods, for example.However, BMO analyst Peter Sklar notes that it’s difficult to gauge whether the new system will provide extra value for consumers because while the change in the point structure means points are earned faster, they are redeemable for less dollar value.“As a result, we believe the management of the marketing program to educate consumers on the value of PC Optimum will be crucial for consumer reception,” he wrote in a note.More than 19 million active members make up the base of the two current programs, with at least 50 per cent of members enrolled in both, said Jim Noteboom, senior vice-president of loyalty and consumer insights.After Loblaw acquired Shoppers in 2014, Noteboom said consumers told the company they wanted one program rather than two separate ones because it would make their lives easier.“Make it one program, that’s easy to understand and easy to earn, with points that are redeemable at all stores,” he said collectors told the company while it gathered research on its loyalty cards.Analyst speculation about a points merger has heightened since August when CIBC (TSX:CM) and Loblaw’s PC Financial announced they would end their nearly 20-year relationship.In its place, CIBC launched Simplii Financial — a no-fee direct banking brand — on Nov. 1. In the breakup, savings, chequing and mortgage accounts went with Simplii, while MasterCard credit cards and the PC Plus points program remained with PC Financial.The change means PC Financial debit card holders no longer earn PC points when using those cards.Both spokesmen said that the end of the company’s relationship with CIBC was unrelated to the decision to merge both programs, which has been in the works for a few years.For RBC retail analyst Irene Nattel, the merger answers a long-standing question about how the company would deal with its two loyalty programs in order to maximize reach and impact, she wrote in a note Wednesday.“In a world with increasing retail fragmentation, PC Optimum has the potential to be a powerful tool to retain and grow share of wallet within the Loblaw ecosystem.”last_img read more

Debt reduction remains high priority ahead of investments and savings CIBC

first_imgTORONTO – Canadians are keen to lighten their debt loads in 2018, according to an annual opinion survey conducted for CIBC.The Toronto-based bank says debt reduction or elimination was the top priority for 25 per cent of the poll respondents.Paying bills or just getting by were the top goals for about 15 per cent of respondents.By comparison, 13 per cent said their top priority was growing wealth or investments.Lower on the list of financial goals were saving for a vacation (eight per cent), retirement (seven per cent), or for a house or renovation (six per cent).The online survey was conducted Dec. 11 and 12 by Angus Reid Forum, using a statistically weighted sample of 1,524 adults in Canada.The high level of Canadian household debt has been cited by the Bank of Canada for years as one of its top concerns.But the level of household debt continues to rise, hitting 171.1 per cent of disposable income in the third quarter.That means that for every dollar of household disposable income there was $1.71 in credit market debt, which includes consumer credit and mortgage and non-mortgage loans.Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz said in a speech two weeks ago that high debt levels are one of the things that keeps him awake at night because they make the economy as a whole more sensitive to higher interest rates.According to the CIBC, debt reduction has also been the top priority in its annual poll for eight consecutive years.But only 16 per cent of the respondents in this year’s poll said they actually achieved their top financial goal in 2017.And 26 per cent said they took on new debt this year, with the top two reasons being the need to manage day-to-day expenses and unexpected financial emergencies.Jennifer Hubbard, CIBC’s managing director of financial planning and advice, said everybody knows how hard it is to keep New Year’s resolutions.“That’s why when it comes to your finances you want to set smart goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, time-bound, and most importantly, realistic.”The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.last_img read more
