The project of the house is a very specific and at the same time unique challenge for an architect. Each line sketched by the designer is a reflection of the Investors dreams. In the case of this house project, the Metaforma Group was able to cooperate with clients from a very beginning of the investment process to the finishing point that was the interior design. The comprehensive approach to the topic has created a consistent whole.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThanks to the established mutual trust, the architects have been able to both respond to the needs of the Investors and convince them to open up to more modern solutions.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThe house is located in the landscape park protection zone. The closeness of nature has prompted designers to create a geometric solid outside of wood-like elements. The body of the building consists of two intersecting cubes. The living area is located in the larger one, the garage and the gym in the smaller one. Natural conditions determine the shape of a block. The best lighting of the building, despite unfavorable layout of the plot, was a very important aspect. Thanks to the irregular wall configuration of the building, there is more sunlight in the rooms and the one-storey part of the terrace furtherly isolates the private zone from the street.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© PION FotografiaThe facades have been covered with black plaster with cool pigments, and with protection against biological corrosion. A special solution designed by Metaforma is the use of an openwork composite joist system for black painted vertical lath and black cross beams. The wood-like composite we chose, instead of natural materials, does not require additional impregnation. All this creates an interesting three-dimensional effect. Dark details in the form of metal window casings and balustrades consistently complete the concept.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaDue to the mentioned above location of the house in the landscape park protection zone and the resulting restrictions, it was necessary to leave small animals migration paths in the fence. Another requirement was a detailed analysis of the land drainage system and an effective placement of the system collecting water from the plot.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThe spatial layout of the building was based on the Investor`s lifestyle. The house function is not only to be an apartment, it is also the workplace and the place of developing the interests of the Owners and it provides the opportunity for a comfortable rest. Designating zones, day zone – in the depths of the ground floor, guest, work and sports zones – in the area of entry and the night zone – on the first floor, emphasizes the multi-functionality of the object.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThe interior of the house is a continuation and complement of the solutions applied outside. The Metaforma Studio architects have made sure that materials used are consistent with facades so that the building is a harmonious whole. Herringbone parquet flooring and both doors and furniture fittings are kept in light wood colors just like joists on the outside. Construction joinery, radiators, handles and bar stairs are designed in black, similarly to exterior details. The implementation of gray tiles of varied layout emphasized the division between the rooms. Contrasting colors were added in soft supplements like a sofa or pouf upholstering. In addition, pomegranate shades were suggested for individually designed furniture pieces.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaOne of the many interesting solutions inside the house are carpet stairs with illuminated handrail and black bars serving as balustrade. Another interesting detail is the large size bookcase in the living room, the character of the whole interior.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThe architects have also planned an unusual wine cellar. The construction to store bottles consists of wooden pins placed between rows of bricks on the wall of the room. In a darkened room you can feel the taste of the selected beverage while at the same time admire all the available collection visually multiplied by the mirror at the end of the room.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThe kitchenette is not a hidden object in the living space. It intersects and separates two functions – dining and leisure. The use of a kitchen island allows you to work in the kitchen and to keep an eye on the rest of the area at the same time.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaAt home there is also a place to practice physical activity, which is one of the Residents passions. The location on the ground floor allows placing heavy equipment on the floor, and the close proximity to the terrace and living room does not isolate from the rest of the family.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaThe block of the building was designed to separate the private zone and the public one. The office has a separate entrance that eliminates the problem of interrupting everyday life of the Residents.Save this picture!© PION FotografiaAll rooms are designed to meet the needs of the users in the first place. Large spaces opening on the parcel provide the feeling of comfort and functional solutions give the sense of freedom. All of the discussed features are the components of the Own House.Save this picture!2nd Floor PlanThe Own House is a consistently implemented project, based on an agreement between the Investors and the architects.

School Superintendents Want Newsom to Freeze School District Pensions

first_imgEducation School Superintendents Want Newsom to Freeze School District Pensions Two-year pause could save schools billions STAFF REPORTS Published on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | 2:34 pm STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy In a letter to Gov. Gavin Newsom, superintendents from several major school districts requested a two-year freeze on scheduled increases in pension contributions that could save billions of dollars, according to published reports.The districts have been paying an increasing amount of money into the systems each year since 2013 under long-term plans to improve the pension systems’ financial health.In 2018, Pasadena Unified School District Superintendent Brian McDonald told the City Council that since 2013, the district has been plagued by debt due to rising pension costs.We fully support the requests by districts to the state for a two-year freeze on scheduled increases to pension contributions,” said PUSD Board Vice President Scott Phelps. “It would save PUSD millions of dollars that could then be used to fill in for the state revenue that is being lost during this crisis.”According to one estimate freezing pensions would save an estimated $1.3 billion in 2020-21 and less than half of that in 2021-22.If the governor freezes pensions, district contributions to the California State Teachers Retirement System and the California Public Employees’ Retirement System would halt.The superintendents want Newsom to declare a budget emergency to use the state’s rainy day fund, known as the Budget Stabilization Fund, to support a stream of school funding that can vary with economic changes.“In addition to our vulnerable populations, students whose parents are experiencing job loss, homelessness, or who may be in foster care will need additional supports to ensure their academic success,” the letter states.Superintendents from Los Angeles, San Diego, Long Beach and Riverside signed the letter.

Would the ‘real’ HR staff please stand up

first_img Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Would the ‘real’ HR staff please stand upOn 23 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today I have had enough. If you had asked me up until very recently how I woulddescribe myself, I would have said that I was an HR professional. But the problem is there are now too many people calling themselves HRprofessionals – who do nothing to improve the way we manage HR – and they aregiving the rest of us a bad name. It is time to call a halt and reveal thesepretenders for what they are. Their abuse of the title of HR has gone too far. Like many HR people, I used to enter the debate on whether we should becalled personnel or HR. I used to do this in a vain attempt to distinguish myown brand of HR from that pale, administrative model peddled by the CIPD, whichhas now achieved chartered status. If that is what a royal charter stands forthen I want none of it. While the CIPD may be the voice of the personnelprofession, it is not the voice of HR in business. Whatever you call yourself, the agglomeration of activities under the HRumbrella is now so vast and incoherent that the label has lost any last vestigeof meaning it may have had. Real HR professionals grapple with organisational issues, while personnelpeople do their level best to deliver efficient administration. Meanwhile,knowledge management, measuring and managing human capital, organisationaldesign and corporate social responsibility are all being done in the name ofHR. But most of it is being done very badly by people who do not possess theskills to do it properly. So, for me, enough is enough – whatever HR used to mean is dead. Welcome tothe reign of the new brand of HR. This ‘new’ agenda is what real HR people havebeen doing for years and it is much too important a subject to be left topersonnel officers. New HR is focused on organisational effectiveness not legislativerequirements, and on organisational value not HR costs. While it is too big achallenge for personnel, it is also too big a challenge for those who use thetitle HR but think along personnel lines. There are four differences between the pretenders and the real thing andthey are actually quite easy to spot. Firstly, pretenders make excuses.Secondly, they never have any confidence in their actions, particularly whenseriously challenged. Thirdly, they measure things that just don’t matter. And,finally, they talk strategy but do administration. From now on anyone wanting to use the term HR had better be able to justifyit. If you want to join this new profession called HR get ready for a roughride and a real challenge. The genuine breed of HR professionals are not worried about theirprofessional credentials, their results speak loudly and clearly forthemselves.

Woman in HR lose out on pay and promotion

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Woman in HR lose out on pay and promotionOn 7 Jan 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Women working in HR are still lagging far behind their male colleagues inthe pay stakes, the latest research reveals. The Personnel and Payroll Salary Survey 2002 finds the pay gap is widest insenior management where 42 per cent of male HR directors earn more than £50,000against a mere 8 per cent of their female counterparts. However, the survey of 760 HR professionals shows that inequality in theprofession spreads across all grades with just under three-quarters of womenearning less than £30,000 compared to only 48 per cent of men. The research by Gee Publishing also finds that not only are women paid lessthan men but they are also less likely to be promoted to the more senior roles.In all, 79 per cent of respondents were women, but only 50 per cent of HRdirectors are women. Author of the report Cherry Park believes one of the reasons for the pay gapis that men are more aggressive in chasing pay increases than women. “Thissurvey suggest that women working in HR are less successful at convincingemployers of their true worth than male colleagues.” Sue Kavanagh, HR director North Europe for Carlson Wagonlit Travel,commented: “These findings surprise me – particularly in an area such asHR that historically has been a strong bastion for women. “One of the reasons may be that a lot of women work their way upthrough HR whereas men are more likely to come in to the profession withexperience from other functions,” she said. Tracy Seymour, director of HR consultancy HR Central, thinks part of thereason for the pay gap is that some employers still prefer to recruit men insenior roles because of the belief that their careers are less likely to beinterrupted by families.

Watson, Mitchell lead San Diego State to 90-81 win vs BYU

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSAN DIEGO (AP) — Devin Watson scored 23 points and Matt Mitchell had 22 to lead San Diego State to a 90-81 victory against BYU on Saturday in a showdown between former conference rivals.Jeremy Hemsley scored 14 points and Jordan Schakel 12 for SDSU (7-4), which jumped to a double-digit lead in the first half thanks to the 3-point shooting of Mitchell and Watson.TJ Haws scored 18 for BYU (8-6), while Jashire Hardnett had 12 and Luke Worthington and Yoeli Childs 11 apiece.It was the first time BYU played at San Diego State since Feb. 26, 2011, when Jimmer Fredette scored 25 points to lead the No. 7 Cougars to an 80-67 victory against Kawhi Leonard and the No. 6 Aztecs. BYU left the Mountain West Conference after that season. The teams last met in the 2014 Maui Invitational, with SDSU winning 92-87 in double overtime.SDSU led by double digits for most of the game before BYU closed to 68-59 on a 3-pointer by Nick Emery with just more than 12 minutes to play. Schakel then sandwiched 3s around a layup by Haws to put the Aztecs back up by double digits. BYU closed to single digits in the final minute.SDSU led 52-38 at halftime, with Mitchell scoring 18 and Watson nine. The Aztecs were 9 of 17 on 3-pointers, with Mitchell and Watson hitting three apiece.Watson made all three of his 3s in helping SDSU take a 25-11 lead. Mitchell made a long 3 and a nice left-handed layup, and Schakel followed with a 3 for SDSU’s biggest lead, 33-13 with 11 minutes before halftime.BIG PICTUREBYU: The Cougars couldn’t keep up with the Aztecs in the first half, falling behind by double digits less than eight minutes in. Childs was held well below his average of 22.9 points.SDSU: The Aztecs seemed to play with more energy and focus than they have recently. Part of that was probably facing an old league rival and part of it was probably having nine days off during finals.UP NEXTBYU plays at Mississippi State next Saturday.SDSU hosts Brown next Saturday night.

70% of vendors don’t care about Brexit

But Jackson-Stops’ found that 70% of homeowners who planned to sell this year said uncertainty around Brexit didn’t deter them from doing so.That’s just 9% lower than Jackson-Stops’ 2017 research, which asked the same question – 79% of active home sellers stated political uncertainty did not deter them from listing their home.The data also revealed that in an event of a no-deal Brexit, 39% of respondents said that it would have no impact at all on their home buying decisions. Meanwhile, just 14% of UK consumers believe a no-deal Brexit would have a strong impact on their decision to put their home on the market.Boris and SDLTIt is widely reported that stamp duty land tax (SDLT) is disrupting the housing market, but Jackson-Stops research reveals that 41% of buyers and sellers, believe a wholesale reduction in SDLT is required across all brackets after Boris said he planned to overhaul stamp duty charges. Yet since then there has not been any clarification from the Prime 55% of Jackson-Stops’ respondents, sadly, believe housing is not a priority for Boris.“Although the UK lacks confidence in Boris Johnson’s ability to prioritise improving the housing market, it is positive to see so many respondents unfazed by the prospect of leaving the EU,” says Nick Leeming, Chairman of Jackson-Stops (left).Read more about Jackson-Stops.Jackson-stops Nick Leeming Brexit November 1, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Ivy Tech Community College Announces Jonathan Weinzapfel as Chancellor of Evansville Campus as Part…

first_imgFacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Former Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel Evansville, IN — Ivy Tech Community College has named Jonathan Weinzapfel to serve as Chancellor of its Evansville campus as a part of its organizational restructure announcement.  The new structure, to better align with community needs at the campus level and empower campuses to be responsive and nimble in meeting local needs, was announced on Tuesday.Prior to the change, multiple campuses reported to regional leadership,  including the college’s Evansville and Terre Haute campuses reporting to a single chancellor, a role Weinzapfel held.  Evansville will now be self-sustaining campus with Weinzapfel serving as the Chancellor. In Terre Haute, Lea Anne Crooks will continue as the Campus President. Further announcements regarding additional Chancellor appointments will continue through Aug. 1.“We appreciate Jonathan’s dedication to Ivy Tech and to the difficult work of leading not only the Evansville campus, but also the Terre Haute campus since May 2014. His leadership of the combined regions developed several successful programs and best practices that have been replicated across the state,” Ivy Tech President Sue Ellspermann said.  “This new structure, with Jonathan at the helm of the Evansville campus, will allow Ivy Tech to more intentionally focus on community needs of Evansville and southwest Indiana.”“I look forward to continuing to lead the Evansville campus as we serve the Evansville community and Southwest Indiana.

This program is now been offered throughout the state via nearly 70 employers and more than 2,600 students have enrolled.His leadership, vision, and direction also led to the Evansville campus receiving a $667,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, to offer free classes to individuals wanting the skills necessary to work in manufacturing; and paying the students during their class and on-the-job training.  Among successes at the Terre Haute campus, was a $1.2 million grant from the Economic Development Administration for the college’s Precision Agriculture Technology program.He came to Ivy Tech from Faegre Baker Daniels where he focused his legal practice on economic development issues and municipal consulting. Previously, Weinzapfel served two terms as Mayor of the City of Evansville and five years as a state representative.Weinzapfel serves on several boards including the Terre Haute Economic Development Corporation, Vigo County School Corporation Superintendent’s Advisory Board, Accelerate West Central Indiana Economic Development, Rural Health Innovation Collaborative Board of Directors, the Indiana Humanities Board of Trustees, Deaconess Board of Directors, NeuMed Board of Directors, WNIN Board of Directors, Economic Development Coalition of Southwest Board of Directors, Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science Board of Trustees, Koch Family Children’s Museum of Evansville Wisdom Council, United Way of Southwest Indiana, and most recently was named to the Board of Directors of the Indiana United Way.He is also a member of Rotary of Evansville, Southwest Indiana Chamber of Commerce and Jasper Chamber of Commerce.In 2012, Weinzapfel earned an honorary degree of Associate of Science in College and Community Service from Ivy Tech.
