Ari is a commercial development comprising of nine apartments and a ground floor retail tenancy. The building is located in Hawthorn East in Melbourne, just east of Auburn Village in the heart of the historical brick-making area, and only a stone’s throw away from the original brickworks site itself.Save this picture!© Paul CarlandGiven the site’s location, the project investigated the opportunities of the humble brick beyond a simple façade material and explored how the brick can be assembled to create detailed patterns on the buildings envelope which in turn evokes a sense of lightness and transparency as the brick’s ‘hit and miss’ openings not only provide privacy for its residents, but an interesting natural-light play to the courtyards and internal spaces. This ‘ode’ to the brick couples as a contemporary reminder of an important element in Hawthorn’s early industrial history while showcasing how the material continues to be successfully detailed for contemporary architecture in Melbourne.Save this picture!© Paul CarlandWhere possible the bricks of the demolished and dilapidated Victorian shopfront were maintained and used as brick on edge paving for the ground floor pathways and courtyard providing a physical connection with the site’s past for anyone who enters the site. Also during demolition, a 120 year old painted advertising sign was discovered on a neighbouring party wall. Efforts were made to alter the design so that the sign could be preserved to not only add a fascinating point of difference to some of the external courtyards but to further contribute to the layering of history and recognition of the sites past.Save this picture!© Paul CarlandA transparent timber batten façade partially screens the brick mass to the street, while connecting the building to the ground as the brick mass floats beyond effortlessly upon the timber screen stilts. The timber screen ghosts the mass of the previous building, and together with a restrained material palette, the new apartment building can sit sympathetically among the Victorian shopfronts that line Burwood Road. When viewing the site from the rear laneway, the building is surrounded by over-developed large scale apartment buildings and the modest use of black brick and perforated steel allow the building to have a strong sense of sturdiness and solidarity to ensure it will never lose its sense of place.Save this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Paul CarlandProject gallerySee allShow lessARK / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSelected Projects5 Shortlisted to Redesign the Entrance of London’s Science MuseumArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:729 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn East VIC 3123, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

These regions have a concentration of persons over the age of 100.Researchers have found nine areas where Fort Worth residents can change their lifestyles in order to lead more healthy lives.“This isn’t about living longer,” Mayor Betsy Price told NBC 5’s Cynthia McFadden. “This is about having more life in your years.”Fort Worth is trying to reach out to the community through schools, city government, employers, restaurants and grocery stores.Three local restaurants: Juice Junkies, Righteous Foods and La Perla Negra, are the city’s first Blue Zones project-approved restaurants. These restaurants have adopted practices such as only serving bread when it is requested and offering smaller portions of popular dishes.They also offer no free refills on sweetened beverages and no salt on the table unless it is requested.“We are excited about celebrating the first Blue Zones Project Approved restaurants and continuing our collaboration with other local establishments,” said Suzanne Duda, vice president of the Fort Worth Blue Zones Project.“The Fort Worth restaurant community has been very creative, offering up new ideas and looking at new ways to use existing ingredients to help make the healthy choice the easy choice in Fort Worth.”Vera Wicker (99) at her assisted living home on a Thursday afternoon in Fort Worth, TX.One local woman, Vera Wicker, born in 1915, is 99 years old.

Teens Who Saved Lives with CPR to Ride on American Heart Association Rose Parade Float

first_imgCommunity News Teens Who Saved Lives with CPR to Ride on American Heart Association Rose Parade Float The float celebrates a new law that requires CPR training of most Californiahigh school students; Amazing stories tell how CPR saves lives From STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, December 8, 2016 | 12:04 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  2017 Union Bank-AHA Rose Parade Float RenderingUnion Bank and the American Heart Association (AHA) Western States Affiliate announced today the 14 Heart Heroes who will ride on their float Keep the Beat Alive in the 2017 Rose Parade® presented by Honda. The premier float features youths who saved lives by administering CPR, as well as the people they saved, and honors the passage of a new California law that will provide CPR training to thousands of high school students each year. The float embodies the parade’s theme Echoes of Success, by honoring its teen lifesavers and the future generations of potential lifesavers the new legislation will create.The float riders, who come from three different Western states and range in age from 11 to 75 years, will stand on the float’s 55-foot long floral piano keyboard and among its four eight-foot tall floral drums and a nine-foot heart-shaped DJ booth. The musical elements represent the beat of the heart and the correct compression rate for CPR administration — a rhythm of 100 beats per minute.A CPR dance team comprised of 28 local Crenshaw High School and Abraham Lincoln High School students will walk alongside the float and engage the audience with a CPR-inspired dance.“We are so proud to call attention to these amazing teens and adults who saved a life or have been saved through CPR. The mission of our beautiful float is to spread the word to millions of people that CPR training saves lives,” said Pierre P. Habis, head of Union Bank Consumer Banking. “Everyone should learn CPR — as you can see from these inspiring float riders, you never know when you might be called upon to save a life with CPR.”“We encourage everyone to get CPR training — it only takes a few minutes to learn hands-only CPR,” Kathy Rogers, Executive Vice President for the American Heart Association Western States Affiliate. “We are so thankful that Union Bank shares our mission to spread the message that CPR is easy to learn and so important. We hope the stories of these courageous teens and survivors will inspire others.”The 14 CPR heroes riding on the float are:• Melissa Ziebell, age 35, Pasadena, Calif.Nearing the finish line of the Paris Half Marathon, Melissa Ziebell was ready for her souvenir snapshot. The last thing she remembers was her legs giving out. Two young girls trained in CPR came to her aid. An avid athlete, Melissa was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect and underwent open heart surgery. She still wonders what might have happened if she had suffered cardiac arrest while alone on a training run, rather than near volunteers who were trained in life-saving CPR.• Darian and Eunique Latchison, ages 16 and 12; Irene Sample, age 75, Bakersfield, Calif.Darian Latchison was desperate to save the life of the woman who rescued him from homelessness and took in his sister at birth. Irene Sample collapsed after walking home in 107-degree heat. Darian’s sister Eunique called 911 while Darian performed chest compressions. “I kept thinking ‘No, you’re not going yet. You have to see me graduate high school,’” Darian said. Irene, who was required as a licensed foster parent to maintain a CPR certification, had brought Darian and Eunique along to her CPR training.• Daniel and Jonathan Tyshler, ages 13 and 11; Boris 69, Seattle, Wash.Daniel and Jonathan Tyshler were enjoying their vacation in Southern California when their grandfather collapsed while driving on the 405 freeway. Jonathan moved his grandfather’s head to ensure blood flow while Daniel called 911 and began the compressions he had learned the previous semester in school. CPR was critical – Boris was without a pulse for 14 minutes.• Nathan Boyer, age 14; and Issac Wenrich, age 27, Chandler, Ariz.Making new friends after his family moved across country was tough for Nathan Boyer, but his baseball coach was always there to give him a pep talk or make him laugh. In March 2016, Nathan and coach Isaac Wenrich were practicing baseball drills when Isaac suddenly slumped to the ground. Nathan began CPR, which he learned as a Boy Scout, and passed Isaac’s phone to a bystander to call 911.• Steve and Lewis Griffith, 66 and 15, Forestville, Calif. (Sonoma County)Lewis Griffith was watching TV when he heard a crash and found his father on the floor. Calling to his mom to dial 911, Lewis took his father’s pulse and, to his mother’s amazement, knew just what to do. Lewis had received CPR training in school three months earlier – hebegan CPR and continued for five minutes until paramedics arrived to relieve him.• Madi Giese, age 17, Manhattan Beach, Calif.As a young girl collapsed on the tennis court, dozens of onlookers called 911 but seemed frozen in shock. Madi Giese rushed to the girl’s side, performing a dozen chest compressions before the girl coughed and took a breath. Madi had learned CPR through the Junior Lifeguard Program. “Because of my CPR training, I had the confidence to act. I was determined to save her life,” Madi said.• Skylar Berry, age 13, Rio Linda, Calif.When a classmate was pulled from a swimming pool – unresponsive – Skylar Berry went right to work administering CPR, continuing chest compressions for five minutes until an adult could take over. Skylar, then 11, had learned hands-only CPR just three months earlier. A week after the incident, she founded a CPR club at her school to teach others the life-saving skill.• Celine Showman, age 42, Oceanside, Calif.Celine Showman still can’t remember the night she took her then eight-year-old daughter Megan out to a sushi restaurant. As her mother slumped off her stool, Megan started her mom’s “chain of survival” by calling for help. Three Navy Corpsmen from Camp Pendleton appeared – one took Megan away while the others began CPR. The woman and two men had just returned from a deployment in Iraq.For three decades, Union Bank and the American Heart Association have united in the fight against heart disease and stroke, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers of both men and women. Union Bank has been engaged in multiple aspects of the AHA’s work, including fundraising, education, volunteer leadership, employee involvement and health messaging. In the last nine years alone, the bank’s employees and clients have donated more than $8.6 million in support of the AHA’s critical research, education, and prevention programs. 2017 will be the second year that Union Bank has joined with the AHA in presenting a Rose Parade float.In September 2016, the California State Legislature passed a law that will require hands-only CPR training for a majority of high school students. The bill will create a new generation of potential CPR lifesavers who can make the difference in the few critical moments when a person suffers cardiac arrest. Approximately 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. CPR, especially if performed immediately and effectively, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival.Follow the Keep the Beat Alive float on Facebook and Twitter using #CPRSavesLives.About the American Heart AssociationThe American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world.

Top 3 Barriers to Homeownership

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Top 3 Barriers to Homeownership Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago As home prices rise and tight inventory continues, the current market has made it more challenging for American’s to reach their goals of homeownership, especially for low-to-median-income borrowers and first-time homebuyers.According to the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center, there are three significant barriers to homeownership: saving for a down payment, accessing mortgage credit, and housing affordability.In a recent report, Urban Institute breaks down these barriers, reporting data on the latest market trends of these obstacles.One of the biggest barriers are consumers thinking they need to put more down than lenders actually require. According to the report, results show that 53 percent of renters cite saving for a down payment as an obstacle to homeownership.Meanwhile, 80 percent of consumers are unaware of how much lenders require for a down payment or believe all lenders require a down payment above 5 percent. Additionally, 15 percent assume that lenders require a 20 percent down payment, and 30 percent believe lenders expect a 20 percent down payment.Contrary to popular belief, borrowers are not putting down 20 percent. The report notes that the national median loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is 93 percent. With entities such as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offering lower down payment options than the GSEs, from 0 to 3.5 percent.Although the challenging path to homeownership isn’t based on downpayment alone—credit access is historically tight, especially in during the post-crisis period. Currently, the media credit score of a new purchase mortgage origination is 779, compared with pre-crisis media of 692.National home price affordability has declined due to the growing home price appreciation, and for a mortgage with 20 percent down, mortgage payments would make up 22 percent of the median borrower’s income.According to Urban Institute, if interest rates reach 4.75 percent, national affordability will return to historical average affordability.To view the full report, click here.

Red Hats seek out yellow dots

first_img By Jaine Treadwell O’Hara said the Yellow Dot Program is the first of its kind in Alabama and has the support of law enforcement agencies across the state.“If a person is involved in an accident and cannot speak for himself or herself and a first responders sees the Yellow Dot, they are trained to know that valuable information is in the glove box,” O’Hara said. “They can identify the individual by the photograph, know who to notify and have medical information that could be very beneficial. The first hour after an accident is often critical to the person’s care. The Yellow Dot gives a person a better advantage during that Golden Hour.”Spikes said the Red Hat Ladies enjoy visiting new places and learning new things.“We hope that none of us are ever in a Yellow Dot kind of situation but, if we are, it could make a real difference in what happens during that first hour,” she said.

Looking to the future

first_img Next Article Comments are closed. Since the introduction of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, fatalinjury rates for employees have fallen to to a quarter of what they were at thestart of the 1970s. Yet, despite this comparative success, we cannot be complacent. Each yearsome 400 people lose their lives in work-related accidents. Moreover, the fatalinjury rate appears to be stubbornly fixed at its current level. If further improvements are to be made, we must begin to take account of thedramatic changes which have taken place in the workplace over the past 25 yearsand which are still continuing. Today, a typical workplace comprises a mix of small contractors,sub-contractors and employees of the parent company. Effective coordination ofhealth and safety systems in these circumstances is more problematic. There has also been a blurring of the traditional definitions of “employer”and “employee”, with more companies relying upon agency workers,casual labourers, people working from home and volunteers. An area of continuing concern is the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME)sector. Research shows that employees in small manufacturing firms are twice aslike to suffer a fatal injury as those in larger companies. It is possible that further regulation could lead to some improvements, butin today’s highly competitive global economy it is unlikely that any governmentwould want to add to the regulatory burden carried by businesses, particularlythose in the SME sector. The truth is that further significant progress will only be made onceeveryone working in business, industry and the public sector start to realisethe benefits which a proactive approach to health and safety can bring. Put simply, investing in health and safety saves money by cutting costs,raising efficiency and improving staff morale. Our goal as we enter the new millennium must be to sell this message toeveryone involved in workplace health and safety.
