Last year’s sales, however, were bolstered by the government scrappage scheme, meaning a better than expected result was registered, with actual sales up 5.9 per cent if the incentive volumes are excluded, the SMMT said.On a greener note, average new car emissions for the first quarter of 2011 were at a record low of 140.3gms per kilometre, down 3.4 per cent compared to last year.Alternative fuel car sales were up 27.3 per cent, marking a widespread change in consumer attitude as the US reports a 37 per cent increase in hybrid and electric car sales in the first quarter of 2011, according to research firm Edmunds.com.

From the outside, it looks like one of the typical housing blocks built for railway workers in Milan between 1920 and 1924. Inside, the building has undergone radical renovation which, in two years of construction, has transformed it from both a structural and distribution point of view. Only the building enclosure, with its relative openings, has been maintained, while everything else — foundations, roof, attics, internal insulation, systems, and internal distribution — has been created from scratch. The total volume has remained the same, while the floor area has been increased by 60 m2, thanks to the new placement of the floor slabs, staircases and reclamation of the attic.Save this picture!© Andrés Otero/LUZphotoFrom social housing to a city villa with private garden, in a 1920s village in the Città Studi district of Milan. From a large family residence to a bachelor pad, redesigned to meet his specific needs, using a sophisticated home automation system, and according to Class B CENED energy certification standards.Save this picture!Section“The vertical form of the dwelling gave us the chance to make one of our dreams as architects come true: one of the staircase systems of Escher’s impossible constructions. The client allowed himself to be captivated by this dream! We emptied the interior so that the space could be expanded horizontally and vertically and we created a structurally autonomous central core cut off from the existing historical context. This stretches over the five floors, each one served by two separate staircases positioned along the longitudinal load-bearing walls”, explains Luca Aureggi. The single-flight staircases are narrow (80 cm) and enable a connection from the cellar to the fourth floor (fitness area, dining and kitchen area, living room, bedroom, study) — not continuously, but alternately. It’s a zig-zag route involving the crossing of the individual floors, which are devoid of partitions (open space). “The home is designed as a vertical loft featuring a mandatory route, where getting lost and finding oneself becomes a game. The resulting sense of bewilderment magnifies the perception of the space”. L.A.Save this picture!© Andrés Otero/LUZphotoAll the materials used contribute to creating a fluid space stretching all the way to the terrace and garden. The relationship with the outdoors is favoured by these green projections that contextualize the building within the convivial “rustic” reality surrounding it, which is very atypical for a big city. It’s like finding oneself inside a hortus conclusus with a vibe of Palermo — the owner’s hometown.Save this picture!© Andrés Otero/LUZphotoFrom the front door, one finds himself catapulted into the long perspective of the dining and kitchen area that overlooks the garden. This is the beginning of a vertical ascent via the various staircases squeezed between the longitudinal load-bearing walls and the central core structure. The small size of the flights is balanced by the width of the landing — a part of the floor one must pass through to access the subsequent flight of stairs. The ascent continues all the way to the study area created in what was formerly the attic. Nothing hinders an upwards run or descent towards the fitness area. The few pieces of mostly vintage furniture are limited in height and there are no doors or wardrobes. Floors and staircases form a single structural and material entity, all clad in the same wooden slats. It is, however, the many custom details, the choice of ad hoc materials and finishes, and the continuous quest to broaden the space in 3D that makes this 200-square-metre house great.Save this picture!© Andrés Otero/LUZphotoProject gallerySee allShow lessB.Amsterdam / NEXT architectsSelected ProjectsKuantoKusta Headquarters / A2OFFICESelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Residence Le Nid / Anne Carrier Architecture

This second home is perched on high ground in Cap-aux-Corbeaux, a place made famous by the classic novel Menaud, maitre-draveur. The house is located on a shared private drive; accordingly, the more opaque secondary volumes by the roadside are oriented to protect the privacy of the living spaces, which face breathtaking views of the majestic landscape.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletOn entering the site, the building is barely noticeable: all mature vegetation was preserved, and the colour of the wooden exterior blends into the colour of the bark on the nearby trees. The house sits delicately on a narrow escarpment located below the access road, creating the illusion of inaccessibility, like a bird’s nest in a tree. A large opening in the building reveals a superb view of the Massif de la Petite-Rivière-St-François through the glass railing of the walkway leading to the master bedroom and covered porch. This is the first contact the house enables with its bucolic surroundings.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletA bridge attached to the house invites us to enter the landscape under a canopy of hundred-year-old pines. This walkway, made of cedar, crosses the main volume toward a spectacular lookout. Before they even reach the main entrance, visitors are irresistibly drawn to the panoramic view. The positive impact of architecture is evident here, as it shapes guests’ path and allows the owners to see who has arrived.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe main entrance, on the northeast side, leads into the secondary volumes. Main traffic areas, utilities and storage are found in this part of the house. Upon entering the foyer, visitors have direct access to the main living area, an abstract volume that seems to float above the lower level and adjoining spaces.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe living space’s glass wall provides a picturesque frame for the river, the Massif de la Petite-Rivière-St-François and Baie-Saint-Paul. Resembling a triptych painting, the lateral bay windows complement the composition of the main view, allowing glimpses of the tip of Ile- aux-Coudres to the southeast, and of the countryside northwest of the town of Baie-Saint-Paul. This volume, finished in pale cedar – including the covered porch – boasts large windows around its entire perimeter, for controlled but constant natural light throughout the day, in every season.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletTo the west of the living area, the master bedroom is accessed via the glassed-in walkway, which protects the privacy of the bedroom while admitting plenty of natural light into the heart of the home. The sunny spaces on the garden level include guest rooms, a secondary living area and access to a deck overlooking the estuary and Baie-Saint-Paul.Save this picture!PlansThe original intention was to shape the site so that users would be living inside an artwork that would constantly change with the seasons, weather and time of day – a source of pleasure under the radiant June sun, or the shimmering auroras of September. According to the owners, the magic is real.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletMaterials and construction systemsThe house, which has 240m2 of living space, is perched on a mountainside. The soil is unstable, and the area is seismically active. Wood is used in several forms. A balloon-frame and crossbeam volume, with dark, horizontally installed spruce siding – harmonizing with the site’s stratification – supports the Nest, a pale-cedar volume suspended above the site. The siding alternates between full and gapped coverage, making it functional both as a railing and a screen.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletFully open on four sides, with no visible vertical support, the Nest’s roof seems to hang above the volume it covers. The interior and exterior spaces are juxtaposed and superimposed, leaving no hints as to the technical challenges posed by the double cantilevers and heated sections.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSpecial attention was given to fine construction details and to overall construction quality. The result is the perfect integration of insulation, structural elements and mechanical-electrical systems with the architectural components of the floors and roofs.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletProject gallerySee allShow lessIntegration: The Latest Architectural Visualization Trend of 2019ArticlesCall for Submissions: National Pulse Memorial & Museum International Design CompetitionCall for Submissions Share Projects Houses Canada Year:  2017 “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913708/residence-le-nid-anne-carrier-architecture Clipboard Architects: Anne Carrier architecture Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/913708/residence-le-nid-anne-carrier-architecture Clipboard Area:  240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAnne Carrier architectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsCap-aux-CorbeauxCanadaPublished on March 25, 2019Cite: “Residence Le Nid / Anne Carrier Architecture” 25 Mar 2019.

Purplebricks’ AML problems are ‘tip of the iceberg’ for industry

first_imgHome » News » Purplebricks’ AML problems are ‘tip of the iceberg’ for industry previous nextProducts & ServicesPurplebricks’ AML problems are ‘tip of the iceberg’ for industryWarning is made by leading industry supplier after hybrid agency confirms it is ‘in discussions with HMRC’ over the company’s procedures.Sheila Manchester13th September 201902,686 Views Following the news that HMRC is ‘in discussions’ with Purplebricks about the online agent’s AML procedures, estate agents across the country have been given a warning from a leading industry supplier, Veriphy.“With HMRC audits now a regular occurrence and, given the level of potential fines for non-compliance, any agency that still cuts AML corners is asking for trouble,” says George Stark , MD of Veriphy.“As we see with Purplebricks’ current concerns, and Countrywide’s recent £215,000 fine, the costs of non-compliance are now a potential threat to any company, no matter what their size.”However, the fines for money laundering are one thing, the prison sentences should be even more of a deterrent, with an average jail term of 27 months, according to research by Thomson Reuters.It is a criminal offence to trade as an estate agency business without being registered with HMRC for money laundering supervision, but there is more to it than being registered, the checks are complex, but there are solutions.Veriphy’s 15,000 clients have access to a full suite of solutions for AML checks on people and companies, online training for all staff members, and a policy document tailored to the firm.It also offers a powerful batch check facility, that allows rapid and regular checking of client bases in accordance with UK AML regulations. “We pride ourselves on having given peace of mind to so many worried businesses”, says Stark, “and there is certainly good cause to worry if your AML procedures are not watertight.”Read more about AML.Further advice:NAEA Propertymark: https://www.naea.co.uk/lobbying/money-laundering-regulations/RICS: https://www.rics.org/uk/upholding-professional-standards/standards-of-conduct/aml-bribery-corruption-terrorist-financing/veriphy AML anti money laundering September 13, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

For heaven’s sake, why doesn’t anyone update 24?

first_imgI was excited to come across this page on N24.de, the website of one of Germany’s two main 24-hour news channels. (The other one’s n-tv). It looks like a selection of BBC-style blogs by the people we see on the box.How wrong I was. The whole point of blogs, as I hope to be demonstrating with this series, is that they need to be frequently updated and timely. So why haven’t the 24ers added any posts to the “Reporters” section since August? They seem to have got some good catches there – Katrin Sandmann, as her online CV proudly tells us, has been a correspondent in Jerusalem, Amman and Baghdad. So why aren’t we hearing from her? The only real blog on the site that seems to be active is Political Editor Michaela May’s May Blog, but it reads like a few rushed pieces of incoherent smalltalk.The blogosphere has been a huge plus for the media in Britain and revolutionised the way some of us approach the press. How long’s it going to take for N24 to realise its importance?Cherwell 24 is not responsible for the content of external siteslast_img read more

Osteoporosis is a common condition affecting over 10 million Americans. Most of those people have no symptoms of the disease until they have a fracture (broken bone). Osteoporosis causes deterioration of bone quality which does not cause pain or any other symptoms. The only symptom of osteoporosis is a broken bone. This can occur without trauma – including sneezing, tripping, or turning over in bed.Osteoporosis risk factors include:Gender – Women are 4 times more likely to develop osteoporosis.Age – Women and men over the age of 50 have the greatest risk for developing osteoporosis. Bone density decreases with age as does the risk for falls, both contribute to fractures from osteoporosis.Ethnicity – Caucasian and Asian women are at the highest risk for developing osteoporosis. African American and Hispanic women can develop osteoporosis but seem to have less risk.Family History – This is one of the highest risk for osteoporosis and fracture. The risk is very high if a first degree relative has had a fracture over age 50 involving hip, wrist, or hip.Low Body Weight – weighing less than 127 pounds increases risk for osteoporosis and fracture.Smoking – Profound bone loss is associated with older women and men who smoke.Excessive Alcohol Consumption – More than 2 alcoholic drinks a day increases risk for osteoporosis. More than four alcoholic drinks a day can double fracture risk.Medications – certain common medications increase the risk for osteoporosis. This includes but is not limited to:Steroids Proton Pump Inhibitors (Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid)Certain anti seizure medications – Dilantin and phenobarbitalArimidex, Aromasin, Femara – medications used to treat breast cancerCyclosporin, Tacrolimus – medications used in transplant.Chronic Diseases – Inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, COPD, Inflammatory bowel disease. Hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism. Chronic kidney and chronic liver disease.Lack of exercise – bone is stimulated by exercise – weight bearing and strength training (light weights). Lack of activity and sedentary lifestyle lead to further bone loss.Shore Physicians Group’s 2018 educational health series, “Be Well Connected,” began in January, with an event focused on “Dementia, Management, and the Future.” The series will continue with an event in July about the effects of aging and dementia, and an event in November focused on diabetes.About Shore Physicians GroupShore Physicians Group is a multi-specialty medical group focused on providing the highest quality of care and making the complex healthcare system simple for patients By choosing Shore Physicians Group, patients are connected to the area’s most highly skilled, caring and passionate practitioners, who provide quality care and the best medical outcomes in the fields of family, internal, pulmonary and critical care medicine, endocrinology, urology, neurology, rheumatology and general, laparoscopic, neurological and reconstructive surgery.
