This private Condominium is comprised of 70 dwellings subdivided into 9 housing blocks, which are aggregated in 3 bodies of one or two-bedroom apartment. The aim is to reach exceptional quality and therefore the Complex offers a leisure facility that includes a swimming pool.This feature is complemented with green areas and wooden decks for pedestrian use. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIn terms of architectural approach, the image is neutral, pure and functional. Formally, the Project is defined by three groups of volumes that respect the site’s natural morphology and enjoy the privilege views. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe established volumes are interrupted twice with the target of avoiding a continuous elevation and the chance to associate the construction with the urban and natural landscape of the surroundings. The chosen materiality integrates the buildings into the general environment by reducing the impact on the South elevation, which is directly confronting with the Stream (Ria Formosa). The result is a horizontal image of reduced scale. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGInternally, the dwellings are compartmentalized according to a repetitive structural metric system and to the principle of modular construction. Therefore, independent to the typologies, all of them has the same genesis (presenting mere adjustments), being even more economic in constructive terms. This solution allows the introduction of optimized solutions. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGFurthermore, the balcony can be considered a crucial element in the design of this Project. Having a primordial role, the balcony works as another habitable space, framing the magnificent view and taking it into the interior space. Thereby, it gains its own expression and scale, offering the opportunity of variable uses. The living room, considered the social element of the house, is always overlooking the Stream. Also, the kitchen, being a multipurpose and functional space, serves the living room at all times.

Melanie May | 23 March 2018 | News “We would like to thank everyone in Eyemouth who has made such an effort to fundraise for ECHC, in whatever way they can. The money raised makes an incredible difference to children in the hospital and helps them to be a child first and a patient second.”Image: Nikki Robertson 205 total views, 1 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Town of 3,500 raises almost £6,000 for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity A small town in Scotland with just 3,500 inhabitants has come together to raise nearly £6,000 for Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity.The town of Eyemouth in the Scottish Borders raised the money during 2017 after two of the town’s children, Isla and Aaron Purvis were treated at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, after being born with a rare congenital disorder called Adams-Oliver Syndrome which can cause abnormal skin development and malformation of the limbs.Having seen the work Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity does for patients and their families, the children’s parents, Karen and Scott, decided to give back by undertaking a series of fundraising challenges. Karen faced two of her biggest fears by completing a sky dive and then diving with sharks, while Scott raised over £4,000 by completing the Stirling marathon and running the 5k, 10k and half marathon in Edinburgh in May.The Purvis family have also been involved in organising an annual ceilidh in the town for the past five years, with all funds going to ECHC, while grandfather of Isla and Aaron, John Purvis and his local singing group The Podlies have recorded CDs and performed at events, where the profits have gone towards ECHC.Nikki Robertson, of Ayton near Eyemouth, has also taken on the challenge of running two half marathons this year after successfully completing the Great North Run in 2017 and raising over £1300 for ECHC. Nikki has also benefited from the hospital’s care having suffered from hydrocephalus as a child. She is also planning to complete the Great North Run again this year in September and hoping to raise £1000 for ECHC.Eyemouth Primary School and High School also both have ECHC as their charity of the year, with any event funds going to support it while the local swimming club collectively swam 52 miles in one night, equivalent to the distance between Eyemouth and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, and raised over £1500 in sponsorship for the charity.Jan Weeks, Eyemouth Swimming Club Fundraiser said:“All the members in the club got involved in the 52 mile swim, from kids as young as seven years old to the coaches who volunteer every week. We wanted to fundraise and raise awareness for ECHC who had supported one of our members and her family, Isla Purvis.”Sue Diamond, Community Fundraising Manager for ECHC said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 206 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Tagged with: Community fundraising meet the fundraiser

The journalist who was released is Simon Zewde (previously identified as “Simon”), who works for the state television station Eri-TV.The press freedom organisation also condemned Sudanese complicity in Eritrea’s press freedom violations, which led to the arbitrary closure in early November of the Eritrean radio station Al-Sharq, which had been broadcasting news in Tigrinya to western Eritrea from the Sudanese capital of Khartoum and the eastern town of Khasm al-Girbah for nine hours a day for the past year.The closure of Al-Sharq is the result of a rapprochement between Asmara and Khartoum after Eritrea played a key role in the signing of an according with the Sudanese rebel movement operating in the eastern part of the country. On 3 November, Sudan and Eritrea signed an accord under which Sudan will supply its neighbour with oil and cross-border trade is reestablished.Reporters Without Borders has been able to obtain that exact names and details of all of the detained state media journalists.

We are also closely watching all the other trials that are going on, because as long as the amendments to the criminal code relating to defamation are not lifted, Algeria will continue to put journalists behind bars.”Two of them – Mohammed Benshicu and Ahmed Benaoum – have already paid the price for this repressive policy in less than a year”, it added.Defence lawyer Khaled Burayu told Reporters Without Borders over the phone that “these decisions could however be described as lenient” and he wondered, “if the verdict could open the way to a new interpretation of press offences”. On 10 May the prosecutor had called for 12 months in prison and a fine of 50,000 dinars against all three journalists for a series of cartoons and a column in 2003 considered as “offences against the head of state”.The newspaper’s editor Salim Tamani, also said, “I hope that the Algerian justice system is beginning to take a different view of defamation and satirical cartoons.”Burayu had argued before the court that neither Dilem’s drawings which he described as “works of art drawn from the cartoonist’s daily life”, nor Mustapha Hammush’s column, which is a “commentary on daily events” could constitute an “offence” or “attack” on the president. The newspaper has said it will appeal.Other journalists sentenced to prison termsOn 17 May, editor of the daily Le Soir d’Algérie, Fuad Bughanem and the cartoonist Hakim Laâlam were sentenced by a court in Algiers to two months in prison and fined 250,000 dinars (about 2,800 euros) for defamation.

Share via Shortlink Housing MarketNational Association of RealtorsResidential Real Estate Full Name* Email Address* Tags Inventory is at historically low levels. At the end of January, an estimated 307,000 new homes were for sale, or a four-month supply based on the month’s rate of sales. The unsold number of existing homes last month will be sold within 1.9 months, according to NAR’s latest report.Joel Kan, head of industry forecasting at the Mortgage Bankers Association, agreed with Yun, but he also noted that rising home prices are locking some would-be buyers out of the market.“Various other data sources have pointed to higher median sales prices and record-high purchase mortgage loan sizes, all of which have started to create affordability challenges in many parts of the country,” he said in a statement.Additional housing inventory is coming, but homebuilders are facing some headwinds. Building permits to build new homes surged last month, but housing starts declined as construction costs increased.Contact Erin Hudson Home sales were the busiest January on record, but still the fifth month of decline in a row. (iStock, Unsplash)Pending home sales fell for the fifth month in a row — but not for lack of demand, experts say.The number of home contracts slipped 2.8 percent from December, according to the National Association of Realtors’ monthly index. Though it’s the fifth month of consecutive decline, it was the busiest January on record, with volume up 13 percent year over year.A drop in pending home sales is often thought to indicate a drop in demand from homebuyers, but Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, attributed the decline to a lack of inventory.“Pending home sales fell in January because there are simply not enough homes to match the demand on the market,” he said in a statement.Read moreHome sales, prices rose in January as inventory hit new lowSales of new homes up 4.3% in JanuaryUS home prices are more than 5% too high: Fitch Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink
