A space, a house, a small detached house … that seeks to articulate its dimensions as a block where the light dig at his own will. The constant relationship established with the outside world and the demand for vertical and horizontal planes that are repeated throughout the interior route was the premise of developing the same.

This effect was given to building a pure geometric form, achieved by horizontal opaque planes to the North and transparent planes to the East and West. Consequently, these two fronts manifest themselves, struggling for a balance, that provides opaque and transparencies at different times of year as well protection against rain or sun, while allowing a visual relationship with the outside and adequate control of natural light. These factors, coupled with the spatial dimension provided by the internal circulation areas, open spaces for living and leisure, pass a psychological dimension to the building of grandeur and balance, although the reduced dimensions of the building area and the built the body.

Digital activity supporting overall business strategy for just a third of charities

first_img“The survey findings show that we have reached a new level of digital maturity within the not for profit sector at a stage where it is something obtainable and achievable for all. It’s certainly a challenging time for many within the sector but it is encouraging to see so many organisations taking a closer look at how technology could help them get the most from their critical fundraising activities at a time when they need it more than ever.”  136 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Only 32% of not for profit organisations say that their digital activity supports their overall business strategy, according to a report from The Access Group.The Access Group’s Not for Profit software division surveyed 254 decision makers and workers in fundraising, marketing or communications in not-for-profit organisations for its State of Digital Maturity Report and that found nearly half of survey respondents only have a link between digital and overall organisational strategies for activities such as fundraising.In addition, over a third of UK charities say digital maturity is still very much a work in progress within their organisations, with 43% of respondents in senior management positions stating their digital maturity was where they wanted or expected it to be.With figures from the Chartered Institute of Fundraising (IoF) and Charity Finance Group (CFG) predicting that charities could face a £12.4 billion shortfall this year due to the impact of Covid-19, digital strategist, Ian Patterson who worked alongside The Access Group on the report, believes digital maturity will play a key role in stemming that shortfall.He said: “Digital maturity is a term used to describe an organisation’s adoption of digital technologies and processes into their strategies as well as how well they respond to key digital trends affecting their sector. For years, many in the not for profit sector have been slow to adopt technology, with mounting financial pressures meaning tech has often had to take a backseat, especially for smaller organisations.“The fact that many UK charity and not for profit organisations have not yet aligned their digital strategies with their organisational strategies is certainly worrying. As the emphasis on digital grows within these organisations, the importance of alignment is only going to become ever more important as the sector continues to adjust to the pressures of Covid-19.“However, this report does demonstrate an evolution in the approach and attitudes towards digital strategies by many. Indeed, in 2020 it’s great to see that the vast majority of not for profits do have either an I.T. and/or digital strategy but it’s clear more work still needs to be done.”Simon Baines, Managing Director of Access Not for Profit, added: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Digital activity supporting overall business strategy for just a third of charitiescenter_img Melanie May | 22 October 2020 | News 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.

Limerick residents issued with rodent repellers

first_imgEmail Cllr Maurice Quinlivan welcomes a major clean-up of the back field in St Mary’s Park.by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr Maurice Quinlivan welcomes a major clean-up of the back field in St Mary’s Park.ULTRASONIC rodent repellers have been issued to residents in St Mary’s Park to ensure their homes are not overrun by rats disturbed during a major clean-up of the riverbank that gets under way next week.City North representative Maurice Quinlan welcomed confirmation that the government has allocated €750,000 for a major clean-up of the back field in St Mary’s Park. He believes the local dump has been a scar on an otherwise very scenic location.“It was unfair that people had to live in such close proximity to what was basically an illegal dump. This news is long overdue and will come as an enormous relief to the people of St Mary’s Park especially,” the Sinn Fein councillor said.The area of the Island Bank was subjected to illegal dumping over a long number of years. According to Cllr Quinlivan, a number of disreputable refuse collectors as well as some domestic users dumped rubbish at the site for years.“This area was in a very bad state and requires massive remedial work to return it to its natural beauty. The funding will mean a clean-up should be finished during the summer.“This was not a simple issue of someone dumping occasionally but a sustained dumping for years took place in the area. It is at present in an appalling state and I’m delighted that work is to commence in the very near future”, he added.

Whether graduation has hit her or not, come Monday, she’ll be closer to that next stage in her life than she will be to returning to the school on Golder Avenue — and the same went for all her classmates there Saturday during and after the commencement.“It’s just crazy to think that we’re going into the world now,” said Miguel Fonseca, the OHS basketball star who’s going to play at prep school next before trying to play in college.“Finally, we made it,” Dunice Garcia said, adding she was excited to graduate and find out what her next step will be. “After so many years in school, we finally get to say that we made it.“We are finally here — in front of everybody.”‘Everybody’ included plenty of supporters from friends and family to faculty, with school principal Mauricio Marquez being one of them, watching over his first commencement ceremony concluding his first school year as the principal at Odessa High.Marquez scanned a sea of square caps Saturday night knowing, under some of them, there were familiar faces he had seen grow up over the years.Marquez first became a principal at Blackshear Elementary in 2007, and spent seven years as principal at Crockett Junior High starting in 2010, so in some ways, he had moved up through the ECISD system alongside several of the students he saw graduate Saturday night.“It’s been an extremely rewarding experience all year long, filled with many mixed emotions today,” Marquez said. “Some of the kids told me they’re excited, they’re sad, they’re scared of leaving school. I told them, ‘All those emotions are part of graduation night.’“It’s truly been a blessing,” he added, on spending his first year at Odessa High with that group.

Iran oil tanker attack ‘launched by a government, not terrorists’, says president

first_img Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani would not identify a specific culprit his government blames for the attack (Credit: kremlin.ru) The attack on one of Iran’s oil tankers last week was launched by a government and could not have been the action of a terrorist group, according to the country’s president.In a media conference on 14 October, his first for more than 12 months, Hassan Rouhani said his officials had seen footage of the incident but would not confirm whether Tehran had identified a specific culprit.He told reporters: “This wasn’t a terrorist move, nor was it carried out by an individual. It was carried out by a government.“If a country thinks that it can create instability in the region without getting a response, that would be a sheer mistake.” Who was responsible for the Iran oil tanker attack?The attack on the oil tanker, called Sabiti, took place on 11 October, less than a month after drone attacks on Saudi Arabia’s Abqaiq and Khurais facilities, which hamstrung more than 5% of the world’s global oil supply and was blamed on Iran.Foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir was quick to deny any Saudi Arabian involvement in the Iranian incident, however: “We did not engage in such behaviour at all — this is not how we operate and that’s not how we did it in the past.”Before this, however, the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in an interview with CBS on 29 September, claimed global oil markets will suffer from rapidly escalating prices if nothing is done following the attacks on his country’s oil facilities.He said: “This attack hit the heart of the global energy industry and disrupted 5.5% of the world’s power needs — the needs of the US, China and the whole world.“This was an act of war — if the world does not take strong and firm action to deter Iran, we will see further escalation that will threaten world interests.“Oil supplies will be disrupted, and oil prices will jump to unimaginably high numbers that we haven’t seen in our lifetime.
