Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events Submit an Event Listing [Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] The House of Deputies expressed its commitment to a national Episcopal Youth Event and expanded funding for evangelism in its first full day of business at General Convention. Those resolutions now go to the House of Bishops for consideration.It adopted resolution C100, which calls for funding the Episcopal Youth Event and earmarking $300,000 for it. The every-three-year gathering of youth of the Episcopal Church had been slated for elimination in previously released draft budgets. Several young deputies, along with members of the Official Youth Presence, described the impact attending EYE had on them and its value in energizing a new generation of leaders for the church. Deputies voted to direct the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance to place the funding in the youth ministries budget.Deputies also asked for $1 million to establish diocesan “mission enterprise zones” to assist a diocese or a group of parishes in reaching out to under-represented groups in the church (resolution A073) and called for helping parishes and dioceses engage in evangelism, especially to those they don’t normally reach, through creating a multimedia evangelism guide (resolution A070).Resolution D034 proved controversial by seeking to amend rules on how deputies are required to identify themselves to include stating the percentage of each deputy’s diocesan income is given to the Episcopal Church. Because the asking used to the support the Episcopal Church’s operations is voluntary, diocesan commitments range from the full 19 percent to zero. Deputies favoring the resolution said it would lead to greater accountability and would indicate that dioceses had “skin in the game” when it came to churchwide finances. Opponents feared that comments by deputies in low-paying dioceses would be discounted and that those from dioceses with financial struggles could end up being second-class citizens in the house. The resolution was defeated.In a morning organizing session, deputies elected the Very Rev. H. Scott Kirby of the Diocese of Eau Claire to serve as vice president for this General Convention, following his recommendation by Bonnie Anderson, president of the House of Deputies. The office has been vacant since Brian Prior, elected vice president in 2009, became bishop of the Diocese of Minnesota in 2010.A much-anticipated relaxation of House of Deputies Rule 67 on the use of electronic devices on the floor also was announced. Anderson asked that all such devices remain in silent mode to avoid disturbing others. Declaring, “I won’t be the electronic police,” she also asked deputies to give their full attention to matters at hand. Deputies who use the social media site Twitter responded there with approval.The House of Deputies approved multiple other actions, all of which now must receive approval of the House of Bishops to take effect. They include resolutions that:Urged enactment of legislation to permit same-gender legal domestic partners and spouses of United States citizens and permanent residents to seek permanent resident status in the same manner as different-gender spouses (resolution D011).Affirmed the “Website Challenge,” which calls on all congregations to have an effective, dynamic and current website by 2015 (resolution A025) and affirmed communications as an essential ministry of the church (resolution A024).Consented to the election of eight bishops: A. Robert Hirschfeld as bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire, Dorsey McConnell as bishop of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, W. Nicholas Knisely as bishop of the Diocese of Rhode Island, Susan E. Goff as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Virginia, Jeff Wright Fisher as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Texas, Jacob Wayne Owensby as bishop of the Diocese of Western Louisiana, Robert C. Wright as bishop of the Diocese of Atlanta and Douglas John Fisher as bishop of the Diocese of Western Massachusetts.— Melodie Woerman is a member of the Episcopal News Service team at General Convention.

Open plan living and the ability to live in and through your home has inspired this transparent and easy-living family home. Set between the Indian Creek Canal and Pine Tree Drive in Miami’s historic Collin’s Waterfront district, the SAOTA-designed space is expansive and fluid – opening up to the activity of the canal when desired, or contained when privacy is needed.Save this picture!© Dan ForerSet on a strongly linear proportioned site, the building is porous, bringing the landscape and water bodies into the interior of the house to create a greater sense of space.Save this picture!© Dan ForerThrough the introduction of a number of introverted and extroverted courtyards, the house boasts views to the outside in two directions. These views are visible from almost any point in the house, creating a tangible and immediate relationship to the outdoors. Save this picture!© Dan Forer“The design is as much about containment as it is about the views through the many living spaces, towards the Atlantic Ocean and world-renowned Miami Beach,” says SAOTA director, Philip Olmesdahl. “While the overall contemporary architectural design is a key focus of the SAOTA design team, the use and connectivity of the spaces is the primary driver – how the house lives.”Save this picture!First FloorSave this picture!Second FloorThe approach to living on the water is a unique Miami experience and something SAOTA sought to reinforce, in keeping with the continuous summers in Miami. In total, the size of the overall body of water on the site, is about half the space of the six-bedroom house.Save this picture!© Dan ForerOn arrival, a multi-purpose basketball court creates a buffer to Pine Tree Drive, offering a suspensive arrival experience as one enters into the grand, serene forecourt. On the opposite side of the property, to the back of the house, a pool pavilion provides a space for people to enjoy the immediacy of the water – both at the pool and at the waterway; an enclosed space offering an outdoor experience, while also allowing for privacy.Save this picture!© Dan ForerA great deal of time and effort went into the design of the pool courtyard,” says Mark Bullivant, SAOTA director. “Time was spent understanding the use of the spaces, including how and when the pool will be used. The outdoor area is animated by a series of events; whether that be the hot tub, BBQ, bar, or a two-storey waterslide. The waterslide forms a focal point at the pool pavilion and makes the space appealing for entertaining.”Save this picture!© Dan ForerNatural lighting plays a strong role in informing the design, with glazed openings to the side of the house flooding the interiors with natural light. The outdoor terrace is also designed to take full advantage of the Western sun, late into the afternoon.“Raymond Jungles’ relaxed, confident and freehand approach to landscaping resulted in a natural environment that truly reflects Miami. The integration between interior and exterior spaces allows lush greenery to invade the home in a structured way.”Save this picture!© Dan ForerThe concept of containment of the various living spaces is best embodied in the screens that cloak the building. Primarily born out of the functional need for privacy and solar control, their application evolved to something far more significant as punched anodised aluminium becomes architectural jewellery. The screens play with the character of light, heightening the experience of enclosure and transparency.Save this picture!© Dan ForerThe screens have multiple functions; in some instances they define spaces, as seen with the double volume nature of the entrance, and in others they facilitate the creation of private protected sanctuaries, as seen in the bedroom where the terraces can be screened in to become part of the room. Where the screens are iconic and loud, the finishes are assertive, but restrained. A key intent has been to implement a palette that is controlled and continuous – limiting the materials to a core few wherever possible. This ensured a cohesion between various spaces, creating a home that is refined and comfortable to live in.Save this picture!© Dan ForerThe interiors are designed in collaboration with Nils Sanderson. There is a refinement to the interior design of the home that subtly rouses all senses but leaves room for discovery. Serene and harmonious, the fluid finishes creates a sense of respite from the pace of city life. Warm tones are explored throughout the sun-filled spaces by using delicate manipulations of patterns and textures. This is complemented by unique lighting designed by Lux Populi. The designers approach keeps things calm and subdued, creating an effortless design. Singularity and warmth is achieved through various materials including the callacutta and limestone, the wood’s richness, texture and movement.Working with DVice as the architect of record and Brodson as the construction company, Pine Tree is SAOTA’s first project to be completed in Miami.Save this picture!© Dan ForerProject gallerySee allShow lessMatthijs la Roi and BART//BRATKE Design “Cultural Jewel” Concert Hall in NurembergArchitecture News3XN and GERNER GERNER PLUS Reveal Competition Design for Undulating Aquarium in ViennaArchitecture News Share Houses Pine Tree / SAOTASave this projectSavePine Tree / SAOTA Brodson Construction “COPY” Photographs Save this picture!© Dan Forer+ 18Curated by María Francisca González Share Architects: SAOTA Area Area of this architecture project Lighting Consultant: Area: 400 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2016 Year: “COPY” Philip Olmesdahl, Mark Bullivant & Andrew Moerdyk DVICE Inc. – Dan Ritchie CopyHouses•Miami, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/893056/pine-tree-saota Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSAOTAOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesmiamiMiamiUnited StatesPublished on April 23, 2018Cite: “Pine Tree / SAOTA” 23 Apr 2018.

July 15, 2020 991 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: GSEs Completed 16,000 Foreclosure Prevention Actions in April Next: Mortgage Brokerage Responds to CFPB’s Claims The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Community development and single-family mortgage lending account for the greatest dollar volume of lending that qualifies under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), according to analysis from the Urban Institute’s Housing Finance Policy Center.The CRA was created to ensure that banks serve the needs of the communities in which they are located.Community development CRA lending claimed the greatest dollar volume among all CRA loan types in 2018 with $103 billion in lending. This is up from $96 billion in 2016. It displaced single-family CRA-eligible lending, which ranked No. 1 in 2016.Single-family mortgage CRA lending came in second in 2018 with $95 billion in 2018, down from $108 billion in 2016. Three researchers from the Urban Institute attributed the somewhat large decline in single-family lending to rising interest rates over the two years. The average primary mortgage interest rate rose from 3.65% to 4.54% between 2016 and 2018.The dollar volume of single-family CRA-eligible loans rose from 12% to 13%, but the dollar volume declined.Small business, multifamily, and small farm lending, in that order, filled out the remaining CRA lending categories for both of the two years analyzed.While keeping its spot in third place for dollar volume, multifamily CRA lending rose substantially from $33 billion to $42 billion over the two-year period, while small business and small farm lending fell slightly.The Urban Institute researchers also suggest the boost in multifamily lending is also partly responsible for the uptick in community development lending because when lenders create loans for affordable multifamily housing, the loan can be counted in both the multifamily and community development categories for CRA purposes.Multifamily lending experienced a $31 billion increase between 2016 and 2018 with an $11 billion increase in low- to moderate-income areas, according to the Urban Institute.Looking ahead, the researchers expect declining interest rates to incite increased mortgage and refinance activity this year and last year with some dampening by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency recently released new CRA rule changes, which the Urban Institute has opposed in various writings since the new rule was released this May.While some in the industry have praised the rule for its modernization efforts, others in and outside the industry are deeply critical. The Urban Institute also wrote this month that one of the impacts of the new rule would be that fewer loans would be assessed by CRA standards.“Even though the banking industry has drastically changed since the CRA was enacted, the current regulations are working reasonably well,” the researchers wrote in their post analyzing CRA lending. “Any modernization efforts should be rooted in data, and as we have written elsewhere, there is no need for change in the middle of a pandemic.”The U.S. House of Representatives last month passed a Congressional Review Act aimed at reversing the CRA.Opposing the rule from the start, Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, Maxine Waters, introduced her Congressional Review Act earlier this month alongside Rep. Gregory Meeks, Chair of the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Financial Institutions. Seventy other members of the House co-sponsored the act.“I am deeply concerned that the OCC’s final rule will harm low-income and minority communities that are disproportionately suffering during this crisis, effectively turning the Community Reinvestment Act into the Community Disinvestment Act,” Waters stated before the House on Monday.The new rule “incentivizes large deals at the expense of smaller and more continuous financial transactions” according to Waters. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency rule would reward CRA funding to institutions that were active in Opportunity Zones without ensuring that their activities specifically benefitted low- to moderate-income community members. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Community Development Found to be Largest Value of CRA Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago 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 Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Community Reinvestment Act OCC Home / Daily Dose / Community Development Found to be Largest Value of CRA Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

Central Division Air Operations(NEW YORK) — Video has been released of two hikers being rescued by helicopter after getting trapped at Yosemite National Park.The rescue took place on the morning of Jan. 16, after the pair got stuck in a crevasse on the North Dome the night before.In a video posted on the California Highway Patrol Central Division Air Operations’ Facebook page, the CHP H-40 helicopter can be seen flying through Yosemite Valley.The video then shows the view from the helicopter looking down, with a rescuer lowering a rope and the stranded hikers being fastened and then pulled up and into the helicopter.Then helicopter is later seen eventually landing in Ahwahnee Meadow, where other personnel were waiting.A post on Yosemite National Park’s Facebook page said dispatchers were called at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 15, but rangers and search-and-rescue personnel were unable to reach the hikers that night “due to darkness, rain, sleet, and fog, and the technical terrain.”The California Highway Patrol said the helicopter began searching in the last known location of the hikers on Jan. 16 before finding them in the crevasse on the east side of North Dome.According to the California Highway Patrol, the hikers — who CHP identified as two men from England in their mid-20s — said they lost the trail in the snow while hiking into Yosemite Valley.They became trapped in the crevasse and called 911 from a cell phone after being unable to continue further because of a 2,000-foot drop or go back because the path was too steep and covered in snow.The two hikers were not injured, according to Yosemite National Park.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
