Junta ratifica sanciones contra J. Jon Bruno mientras el tribunal…

first_img Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC [Episcopal News Service] La Junta Disciplinaria para los Obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal ha rechazado una apelación del Obispo J. Jon Bruno de Los Ángeles en que  objetaba las sanciones que le impusiera un tribunal del Título IV que aún delibera sobre su fallo definitivo en el caso disciplinario de Bruno.El abogado de la Iglesia Raymond  Coughlan (“Jerry”) a la izquierda, le muestra unos documentos al obispo de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles J. Jon Bruno durante el testimonio del obispo el 29 de marzo. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Las sanciones del tribunal el 17 de junio le prohibían a Bruno procurar la venta de la iglesia de Santiago el Mayor [St. James the Great] en Newport Beach, California, en tanto el caso disciplinario se encuentre en curso. El fallido intento inicial de Bruno de vender la propiedad de la Iglesia fue el fundamento del caso del Título IV contra él.De las sanciones del tribunal se haría eco el obispo primado Michael Curry el 29 de junio, quien emitió una  instrucción por la cual restringía parcialmente el ministerio de Bruno, específicamente su capacidad de vender propiedades de la Iglesia. Estas restricciones se impusieron en respuesta a la noticia de que Bruno había intentado nuevamente vender la iglesia [de Santiago el Mayor] mientras la acción disciplinaria estaba todavía pendiente.El caso original contra Bruno conlleva su fallido intento de vender la propiedad de la Iglesia en 2015 a un promotor de condominios por $15 millones en efectivo. Esa gestión llevó a los miembros de Santiago el Mayor a presentar acusaciones de conducta impropia contra Bruno, arguyendo que él había violado el derecho [canónico] de la Iglesia Episcopal. Las vistas sobre esas acusaciones se celebraron en marzo.El tribunal eclesiástico de la Iglesia Episcopal, que aún está considerando si disciplina a Bruno en ese caso, y [de ser así] de qué manera, le informó a éste el 17 de junio que le está prohibido “vender o transferir o contratar para vender o ceder la propiedad de [la iglesia de] Santiago el Mayor hasta nueva orden del Tribunal”.Bruno apeló esa sanción, pero la Junta Disciplinaria para [los] Obispos rechazó la apelación en un dictamen emitido el 8 de julio y publicado en la Red  por el grupo Salve a Santiago el Mayor.“Al hacer una contratación para vender la propiedad de Santiago [el Mayor] mientras los conflictos que involucran esa propiedad estaban aún sujetos a revisión y consideración por el Tribunal, [Bruno] interrumpió e interfirió la integridad del proceso de los trámites del Título IV”, dice el dictamen. “Las acciones de Bruno perjudican lo que los Cánones contemplan que sea un proceso de reconciliación”.El dictamen se dio a conocer mientras el previsto sucesor de Bruno, el obispo coadjutor John Taylor, era ordenado y consagrado el 8 de julio en Los Ángeles.A fines de 2018 Bruno cumple 72 años, la edad obligatoria de jubilación en la Iglesia Episcopal.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Suburban House / Besonias Almeida Arquitectos

This is a traditional area of farmhouses that, after the construction of the Western Highway, is being gradually converted and transformed into a permanent living area. In this semi-rural environment, with very few neighboring buildings, the project had to be conceived without all the information that a well-established neighborhood provides.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe orderThe house was to be built with a loan from the Procrear program, a national government initiative for the construction or extension of the first property. With these funds plus a few savings achieved, a young couple commissioned the project to build a minimum house (no more than 80sqm) with a mutability and spatial flexibility that would allow different ways of inhabiting it over time. The question of the safe closing of the residence is an essential aspect.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe proposalWith these data, the search for proposals was conditioned by three issues: on the one hand, the security and privacy of the house as a consequence of its particular location, on the other hand, the reduction of costs to make its construction feasible through the credit plan, and finally, its adaptability to the changes in the life of this young couple.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosAs the resolution of the security of the house was so relevant, it seemed interesting to see to what extent this strong conditioner could be taken as a generator of the project, to what extent the formalization became dependent on the solution to this problem and how much this dependence could be stressed without affecting the good aesthetic result, operating within very reduced budgets.Save this picture!PlanIt was then decided to formalize the house with a simple geometry and a technology easily available in the market, which would make it possible to save a considerable amount of time in the completions during its execution and ensure zero maintenance over time.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe proposal was to design this house in a single volume, an elongated prism with a roof and side walls in exposed reinforced concrete, and adopting the exposed regular brick as the closure for the larger sides.Save this picture!Section 01In the façade towards the front, these walls are pierced or blinded to provide security, intimacy or hermeticity, as the case may be. In the façade towards the back, brick walls are combined with a large opening that ensures the interior-exterior integration. The house is finally shut with a metal curtain that, when rolled up, disappears into inverted beams.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe functional organizationA clear cut in the brick continuity of the façade points out the entrance. From there you access a single space, which the location of the wet core (bathroom and kitchen) sectorizes into two areas: an intimate one with two entrances to solve different situations of use (two small bedrooms or a master bedroom and a workspace), and a social one that integrates seamlessly into the kitchen and is extended to the outside through a pavement and a deep overhang.Save this picture!Section 02In a second stage, and in the order that the requirements of the couple establish it, the construction of a new bedroom and/or the execution of a patio with the grill is foreseen.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe structural solutionA two-way reinforced concrete slab rests on inverted beams removed from the façade line to simulate a lower slab height and make it look more flattened.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThese beams are supported by concrete partitions or by iron bars columns as required by the project. A low concrete partition slab that runs along both façades serves as a support for the different brick walls.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe constructionAll the concrete, both interior and exterior, is exposed without any kind of surface finish. The same criteria was followed for masonry walls, both blind and pierced.Save this picture!Cortesía de Besonias Almeida ArquitectosThe floors, interior and exterior, are made of cement smooth cloths separated by stainless steel planks. Bathroom and kitchen countertops are concrete slabs with their surface smoothed and protected by lacquer. The openings are made of dark bronze anodized aluminum with air chamber glass. The heating is by underfloor heating. The kitchen furniture and all the doors of the different storage areas were designed with MDF panels with two coats of varnish.Project gallerySee allShow lessMedly Pharmacy / Sergio ManninoSelected ProjectsAndrés Jaque Appointed as New Director of Advanced Architectural Design Program at C…Architecture News Share “COPY” Year:  2017 ArchDailycenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/895100/suburban-house-besonias-almeida-arquitectos Clipboard Area:  85 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Suburban House / Besonias Almeida ArquitectosSave this projectSaveSuburban House / Besonias Almeida Arquitectos CopyAbout this officeBesonias Almeida ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsFrancisco AlvarezArgentinaPublished on May 28, 2018Cite: “Suburban House / Besonias Almeida Arquitectos” [Casa Suburbana / Besonias Almeida Arquitectos] 28 May 2018.

Housing Forecasts Stay Calm Through Economic Storm

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Housing Forecasts Stay Calm Through Economic Storm About Author: Brian Honea Housing Forecasts Stay Calm Through Economic Storm in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Related Articles The recent economic slowdowns, which include April job growth of only 160,000 and 0.5 percent Q1 GDP growth, seem to have darkened everyone’s view of the economy for the remainder of the year. Despite this, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have stood their ground on their positive outlook for housing for the remainder of 2016.The Fannie Mae Economic & Strategic Research (ESR) Group this week further downgraded its forecast for the full year of 2016 down to a 1.7 percent growth rate—from last month’s forecast of 1.9 percent and the 2.2 percent at the beginning of 2016.While the ESR group believes that the economy will bounce back somewhat during the remainder of the year, with consumer spending as an engine for growth, they don’t think it will be enough to make up for the weak first quarter.“Consumers and businesses showed caution at the end of the first quarter,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “Job creation slowed in April and participation in the labor force gave back some of the recent gains. Nevertheless, the uptick in both hours worked and average hourly earnings should boost labor income and help support consumer spending in the current quarter.”Likewise, in the May 2016 Monthly Outlook released Wednesday, Freddie Mac downwardly revised its forecast for economic growth for the remainder of the year from 2.0 percent down to 1.8 percent. Freddie Mac did say, however, they expect a “strong rebound” in subsequent quarters.Despite the more pessimistic views about the economy for the rest of 2016, both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac kept positive on the outlook for housing. Freddie Mac stuck to its prediction that 2016 will be the best year for home sales in a decade as near-historically low mortgage rates—averaging 3.7 percent for a 30-year fixed rate at the end of the first quarter and floating between 3.57 and 3.66 percent in April and May—work to offset rapid home price appreciation and tight inventory.Source: Freddie Mac“Even with tight inventories and rising house prices, we still forecast 2016 to be the best year for home sales in a decade,” Freddie Mac Chief Economist Sean Becketti said. “The first quarter of 2016 had the second-fastest first-quarter pace of home sales in the past decade, narrowly edging 2015. Home sales typically rise in the spring and summer months so we’re anticipating an acceleration in home sales, which will allow us to surpass 2007’s pace by late summer.”According to Fannie Mae, pending home sales and low mortgage rates are likely to result in a rise in home sales in the near-term.“Home sales are expected to pick up heading into the spring season amid the backdrop of declining mortgage rates, rising pending home sales and purchase mortgage applications, and continued easing of lending standards on residential mortgage loans,” Duncan said. “Meanwhile, the homeownership rate showed signs of stabilizing during the first quarter of this year, as the relatively high homeownership rates among baby boomers have helped offset low homeownership rates among millennials, many of whom remain on the sidelines due to ongoing affordability issues.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Economic Forecast Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Housing Market May 18, 2016 1,559 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Trump Planning Dodd-Frank Overhaul Next: FHA Proposes Enhancements to HECM Program Economic Forecast Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Housing Market 2016-05-18 Brian Honea Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Homeownership Rate Drops, But Not For Everyone

first_img Just when the homeownership rate seemed to be on its way back after falling to a 48-year low in the second quarter of 2015, it took another step backward on Thursday.One particular demographic, however, is experiencing a dramatic increase homeownership despite the reversal of the nationwide homeownership rate for Q1.According to the Census Bureau’s Housing Vacancy Survey (HVS) for April 2016 released on Thursday, the U.S. homeownership rate for the first quarter of 2016 declined by 20 basis points over-the-year and by 30 basis points over-the-quarter down to 63.5 percent. The Q1 homeownership rate is only 10 basis points higher than Q2 2015’s 48-year low of 63.4 percent.For Generation X, however, the homeownership rate is on the way up. About 58.9 percent of Gen Xers owned homes in Q1, which is an over-the-year increase of 50 basis points.“Of particular note was the continued increase in the homeownership rate for Gen X. Households aged 35-44 increased their homeownership rate a full 0.5 points, moving to 58.9 percent from 58.4 percent,” Trulia Chief Economist Ralph McLaughlin said. “This is the second straight quarter of year-over-year increases. This is important as many Gen Xers lost their homes during the recession, so this is a cautiously optimistic sign that we may be seeing boomerang buyers coming back into homeownership. This also represents a glimmer of hope the homeownership rate for Gen Xers may continue on an upward trend in the remainder of the year. Although this year-over-year change is not statistically significant, the 0.5 point increase is at the upper bound of an error rate of 0.5 percent.”While the homeownership rate has jumped for Gen X, it has declined among other age groups. The rate for household heads over 65 years of age declined by 20 basis points over-the year in Q1 (down to 78.8 percent) and by 90 basis points for those aged 45 to 54 down to 69.2 percent.Click here to view the complete HVS.

Furthermore, the petitioners stated that the conduct of examinations late in September shall leave them at a disadvantaged position as all colleges and universities would have completed admissions.The Advocate appearing on behalf of CBSE apprised the bench of the fact that all precautions were in fact being taken and that instead of approximately 500 centres till last year, 1200+ centres were set up for taking examinations. Moreover, only 12 students as against the earlier practice of 40 students in one classroom shall be present. The CBSE also stated that it shall release a scheme shortly.In light of this, the bench directed the CBSE to place the scheme and affidavit on record by September 7 and listed the case for further hearing on September 10.The plea has been filed on behalf of around 2,10,000 students who were placed in the compartment category, after CBSE declared the result for the said classes, based on an alternate evaluation method, in July this year.The primary contention raised by the Petitioners is that it shall be impossible for CBSE to safely conduct the compartment examination amid the pandemic. They have also argued that since the compartment exams were not conducted in July, students have been unable to take admissions in Universities.They have therefore sought a direction upon the CBSE to cancel the compartment exam and have prayed the Court to set aside its notifications dated August 6 and August 12, mandating compartment examination.A similar plea was earlier filed before the Supreme Court which came to be dismissed with a direction to challenge the notification dated August 6, 2020, separately.[Compartment Exams] SC Dismisses Plea Seeking Cancellation Of Compartment Exam”A substantive petition needs to be filed to assail the August 6 CBSE representation. The CBSE has already given its reasons. You please file the Notification. We’ll give you the liberty to do so,” Justice Khanwilkar had said while dismissing the plea on August 20.Accordingly, the Petitioners filed the instant plea, challenging the CBSE notifications. They have pointed out that the Board denied their request to cancel the compartment exams, giving a ‘vague reason’ that if compartment examination is cancelled then future of the ‘other’ 10th and 12th board examination students shall be affected.”However it is submitted that CBSE did not clarify that how the students who does not belong to the compartment category will be affected if the compartment exam is cancelled,” the plea states.Notably, 150198 students from class X and 87651 students from class XII have been placed within the compartment category.The plea urges the court to issue directions to CBSE to come up with a plan which shall ensure that neither the students are forced to appear in the compartment examination during the peak of COVID 19 nor students be forced to waste a whole year due to compartment in a single examination.It is pointed out that the CBSE cancelled Board exams in March this year and the same benefit should be extended to the present Petitioners.Next Storylast_img read more
