Located a stone’s throw from the region’s technology center, this house is nestled into a stand of mature cedar trees. Our client wanted a house that had abundant natural light and a strong connection to the land. To accomplish that, we pushed the building back away from the street, freeing up a large outdoor area, then organized the interior into two wings – living and sleeping. We then developed a series of courtyards that terrace up the site and through the building, linking inside and outside space in a sinuous whole.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© Paul WarcholMerging. Visitors approach the house from the east, entering the first of three “outside rooms”, the Auto-court. This space doubles as a sports court and is often strewn with badminton equipment, bikes, and family toys.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Paul WarcholThe Meadow-court, shaded by cedar trees and merging directly with the interior spaces, has a more pastoral setting. Planted in field grasses and containing an outdoor living area and water feature, nature is the predominant experience here.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholThe third outside room, the Terrace-court, is an extension of the living area. Facing west, this space is used for seasonal dining and evening campfires, the final destination of a sinuous path.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholLiving. The roof over the living wing, supported by four concrete columns, appears “light” and pavilion-like, inviting daylight in and views out.

Gardaí praised for intercepting armed eight-man posse

first_imgAndrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A JUDGE has praised the work of Limerick Gardaí who intercepted an “armed posse” on their way to the home of a family who were subjected to a high level of “premeditated intimidation”.Detective Garda Ivan Muldoon told Limerick Circuit Court that Gardaí received confidential information that eight men were on the way to a house at Bru na Grudhain, Castletroy in Limerick on October 16, 2013.The men, who were travelling in a Volkswagen Golf car, were armed with a variety of weapons including a pick axe handle, screwdrivers and a car jack.Gardaí, who had earlier evacuated Christopher and Nora O’Donnell and their children from the house, intercepted the car before “serious damage could be done”.Detective Muldoon said the incident was connected to a dispute between members of two extended families.Three men before the court, Shane Ryan Casey (21) of April Rise, Old Cork Road; Jason Stokes (23) of Woodpark, Castleconnell and Wesley Stokes (20) of Curragh Birin, Castletroy pleaded guilty to the possession of weapons.Shane Ryan Casey also pleaded guilty to causing criminal damage to the house in Castletroy and to two other charges dating back to September 2, 2013 where he was found in possession of a hurley and with causing criminal damage to the former home of the O’Donnell family.Stating that such intimidatory incidents could not be tolerated in society, Judge Tom O’Donnell they were “premeditated and always carried out by a large group to maximise the fear”.Following their guilty pleas which were entered last year, the court heard that both Wesley and Jason Stokes had engaged well with the Probation services.Suspending an 18-month prison sentence for three years for both Jason and Wesley Stokes, Judge O’Donnell said they were part of a “maximum effort to intimidate the family, but it was extremely fortunate that the armed posse was intercepted by Gardaí”.Jailing Shane Ryan Casey for two years and six months for the four offences, the judge said he was one of the “main protagonists” in the incident and he had to take a serious view of that.As he was taken into custody, Casey, who has previous convictions for beating a horse to death, shouted profanities at the court claiming that he just wanted to “spend time with his woman” and warned that “there’s a new family feud in Limerick”.

Centre handheld all sectors. Their argument of NDMA not doing anything were nothing but arguments made in desperation. If sector specific issues persist, they are free to go to RBI, but to seek relief under Article 32 and pray that the relief(s) already granted be tweaked is not maintainable”- Solicitor General Tushar Mehta to Supreme CourtThe law officer stated that the Central Government realised and accepted that there was a problem and that there had to be a solution but that had to be sector specific. “The solutions need to be met out institutionally and within frameworks provided,” he addedThe Centre told Supreme Court that to roll out interest waivers would mean that a huge waiver will be attracted which in turn would affect the economy. “If the banks were to bear this burden, it would necessarily wipe out a substantial and a major part of their net worth, rendering most of the banks unviable and raising a very serious question mark over their very survival”, said SG while stating that a blanket waiver of interest would mean foregoing an estimated 6 lac crore.Justice Bhushan told him at this juncture that he courts were conscious of this and that it would not pass any orders which would shake the economy.”Of course court will not pass an order which will lead to the economy going haywire. We are conscious of the fact”- Supreme CourtOn the aspect of Centre’s non chalance regarding economic stresses faced by various sectors which was argued by petitioners, Solicitor General said that waiver of interest was never the solution in any economy but providing thrusts for boost of various sectors was the right way to proceed.”Centre not done anything – I am answering to this argument now. Many sectors affected by Covid and RBI took decisions, Said, we can restructure but not waive everything. RBI took a wise decision of “eligibility criteria” vis-a-vis Non-NPA accounts….. all conceivable sectors affected by Covid19 have been taken into consideration,” he arguedThe law officer then told court that banks were fully empowered to customise relief to not so big and big borrowers (loans of up to 1500 crores and over 1500 crores respectively).”Big Contours and parameters to be fixed by RBI, minute ones to be fixed by the Kamath Committee and they are to be implemented by the banks,” SG argued.On the issue of the implications of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, the Solicitor General informed Court that the effect of this disaster (Covid19) was of such nature that it could not be dealt with by one ministry. “All the written decisions are taken with approval and the initiation of decisions under the Act are taken by the Prime Minister  who is the Chairman of the NDMA… all ministries are required to function under sections 35 & 37 of the Act,” he argued.Senior Advocate VV Giri appeared for the Reserve Bank of India, arguing that the prudence framework was available in terms of the RBI Circulars.He argued today that the discretion to frame a resolution plan should be with the bank and not the borrower.The bench is expected to continue the hearing tomorrow.Complete updates from the hearing available here.Next Storylast_img read more

Are you drinking coal ash?

first_imgLouAnn Watkins just wants drinking water without cancer-causing toxins. A 2016 test of her home’s well water found levels of a potent carcinogen, hexavalent chromium, more than four times the level that had recently prompted “do not drink” warnings from the state.The culprit? Watkins and other residents suspect the network of ash ponds at Duke’s Rogers Energy Complex in Mooresboro, N.C. State law only requires utilities to provide clean water to residents living within a half-mile of such ponds, a limit that geologists say has no scientific basis. Watkins lived just a few hundred yards beyond that limit.She worries about the long-term health impacts of this water on her and the five-year-old niece and twin grandchildren she has helped raise. Partly because of this concern, she abandoned her since-repossessed manufactured home to move across the road into her mother’s house.A test of LouAnn Watkins’ well water found levels of a potent cancer-causing agent more than four times the level that had recently prompted “do not drink” warnings from the state.LouAnn Watkins, a 45-year-old nursing assistant (right), moved from her home near the Rogers Energy Complex in Mooresboro, N.C., after high levels of a potent, cancer-causing form or chromium was found in her well water. She now lives with her mother, Myrtle Watkins, 72, (left) and niece, Gabriella Dawkins, 5, in a nearby home where the drinking water has never been tested.She watched as the new, Duke-financed county water line came to an abrupt stop at a bridge running over a creek next to her old lot. She knows this means she can’t get a decent price for the property, which has been in her family for decades, or even pass it on to relatives.“Nobody could ever stay there with the water that bad,” she said.All the while, she has not received so much as bottle of water from Duke.“I haven’t been compensated for one thing,” Watkins, 45, said, looking at her vacant lot from her mother’s porch. “They don’t care anything about us on this side of the bridge.”Citizens across the South fear that coal ash poisons the water they drink and swim in and the fish they catch. It’s been one of the region’s biggest environmental stories since a collapsed pipe poured thousands of tons of coal ash into the Dan River from a pond at a Duke plant in Eden, N.C. in 2014.Utilities say it is an old story about a threat that is already being addressed. Duke spokeswoman Erin Culbert, for example, said recently that in spending billions of dollars to clean up or cap old pits, the utility is on “common ground” with environmentalists. The company is complying with a state law that requires it to provide its plants’ neighbors with clean drinking water. It is converting or replacing many of its old pits so they burn natural gas, part of an industry-wide shift that will greatly reduce the estimated 130 million tons of coal ash that utilities create annually. And by the end of the year, she said, all of the ash Duke produces in North Carolina will be either recycled or stored in dry, lined landfills.But environmentalists say this problem is far from solved.Thousands of residents, like Watkins, still live with unsafe drinking water. The fix the company plans at six of its sites, called cap-in-place, involves covering ponds with plastic sheeting, but leaving the ash, meaning toxins continue to seep into groundwater. According to data from Duke Energy, groundwater near ponds is fouled with high levels of arsenic, lead, boron, selenium and other contaminants, including radium at concentrations 38 times safe drinking standards at the Duke plant in Asheville.Instead of protecting residents from these toxins, however, the EPA has been busy rolling back hard-won federal regulations. One of the first actions of Scott Pruitt’s successor, Andrew Wheeler, a former coal lobbyist, has been gutting most of Obama’s coal ash rule. The next phase may include ending the requirement to disclose the results of groundwater testing, which “has been such a crucial step in allowing the public and advocates to understand the full scope of the problem,” said Amy Adams, the North Carolina program director for Appalachian Voices.The EPA is also handing over regulation of coal ash to states, which means the complex, politically fraught job of regulating coal ash will be left to underfunded state environmental agencies and, ultimately, lawmakers who have proven unable to stand up to corporate powerhouses such as Duke, says Frank Holleman, an attorney with Southern Environmental Law Center.“The EPA is trying to give these [state] agencies the discretion to let the utilities off the hook.”What Exactly Is Coal Ash?Though Duke has sought rate increases to make customers pay for cleaning up ash pits, utilities are clearly to blame for the contamination, Holleman said.“The utilities voluntarily created an unsafe and irresponsible situation merely for convenience and some marginal cost savings,” he said.Burning coal distills heavy metals and other non-combustible poisons in the ash. For decades, utilities have mixed this residue into a slurry and pumped it into unlined ponds. Because the plants need large sources of water, these pits are often separated from rivers only by aging, earthen dams. Some of the pits are below the water table, leaking directly into the aquifer. And as modern power plants extract more chemicals such as mercury from their emissions, more of it ends up in coal ash.“We use 21st-century technology to take toxic substances out of the air, but 19th-century technology to transmit them in concentrated form into water systems,” says Holleman.The influence of regional utilities, especially Duke and Dominion, can be easily traced in public records and media reports. On the federal level, Duke spent a total of $1.5 million in political donations and $6.4 million on lobbying during the 2016 election cycle, while Dominion spent $1.2 million in contributions and $2.8 million on lobbyists, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Duke CEO Lynn Good both met with and called the EPA’s Pruitt before he announced plans to relax the regulation of coal ash.Influence is just as obvious in the weak state controls on utilities, critics say. In 2016, Duke mobilized lobbyists to undermine state coal ash rules. The result was a new coal ash law that would allow some of the coal ash ponds to be capped in place, or, as French Broad Riverkeeper Hartwell Carson describes this process, “pushing the coal ash around a little bit and putting a tarp over it.”Is our water safe to drink?For citizens across the Southeast, there is one central question: Is our water safe to drink and, if not, is Duke to blame?Duke’s previous reports to the state showed levels of “arsenic at over 468 times the state’s public health safety standard, vanadium at 690 times the standard, chromium at 83 times the standard … and cobalt at 119 times the standard” for safe drinking water near its Mooresboro power plant.Chemical markings from toxins found in samples taken from groundwater sources near the power plant clearly shows their source is coal ash, says Albert Rubin, professor emeritus at North Carolina State University and a member of the state’s Environmental Management Commission.“We can assert that the radium [in the groundwater] is not naturally occurring and is related to the leaking of coal ash.”That groundwater flows into the Broad River, a popular destination for fishing and kayaking and a source of drinking water for several downstream cities and counties.Duke does not plan to remove or clean up the coal ash ponds in Mooresboro, but will only cap in place. A geologist hired by SELC to examine the effectiveness of cap-in-place at another Duke plant, predicted that dangerous levels of contaminants would continue to seep from the site for more than a century after capping.“It’s like putting a lid on a leaky pot,” said Roger Hollis, 69, a nearby resident who has helped organize residents’ response to the contamination. “The pot is still going to leak.”Hollis acknowledges Duke has responded to residents who live within a half-mile of the plant not only with water lines but with a “goodwill” payment of $5,000 and a stipend to cover their water bills.But this has done nothing for residents such as he and Watkins, who live outside of this small, arbitrary half-mile boundary. And the company hasn’t adequately addressed the future threat of spreading pollution or accounted for the long-term health impacts on residents, some of whom may have been drinking contaminated water for decades.Hollis thinks he knows the reason for this indifference. “The people affected—who are largely rural—don’t have the resources or the interest in fighting Duke.”Laramie Short, 53, a former maintenance worker, acknowledges that he fits this description.He joined Hollis on a drive to a campground along the Broad River, cases of bottled water piled beside each cabin and camper. He peered at the distant outline of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the looming presence of the plant’s stack.He has lived here since he was seven years old, he said, in a house he now shares with his 88-year-old mother. A black German shepherd was chained to a stake in his front yard. Smoke billowed from a wood stove that is his primary source of heat.He lives close enough to the plant that he can hook into the new water line, but he worries about all those years of breathing air that was once so smoky it blackened clothes hung out on the line and of drinking water so close to the leaking ash pits.The files that Hollis keeps in a big cardboard box at his house show that in 2016 a test revealed Short’s water contained levels of total chromium far above the state threshold for safe drinking water.“I don’t know about that,” Short said. “All I know is, it’s bad.”Who really cares about coal ash?The Southeast, with a long history of dependence on coal as an energy source, has the highest concentration of coal ash dump sites in the nation. Residents throughout the Southeast are more likely than other residents of the United States to live near aging, unlined coal ash ponds. That means their wells are more vulnerable to the long-term threat of poisons such as lead, arsenic, and radium that leach from these pits and into groundwater. They are also more likely to encounter these toxins in rivers, which are often protected from ash ponds only by leaky earthen dams. And they could be exposed to the increased incidence of cancer that the federal Environmental Protection Agency has found in communities near ash ponds.GEORGIAThe state is home to 11 coal-fired power plants which store a combined 86 million tons of ash. Utilities plan to cap about 90 percent of this ash in place, which allows toxins to seep into the groundwater. Georgia ranks eighth among states for producing new coal ash, an estimated 6.1 million tons per year.VIRGINIAThere are coal-fired plants and 32 coal ash impoundments in Virginia. Eight of these ponds have been classified by the EPA as a “significant hazard.”SOUTH CAROLINAThe state is home to 12 coal-fired power plants and a total of 50 coal ash impoundments. The state’s three largest utilities, responding to lawsuits and public pressure, have agreed to remove all coal ash from unlined pits.TENNESSEEThe Kingston spill, which dumped more than a billion gallons of ash sludge into the Emory River, was the largest industrial spill in the history of the United States. Tennessee is home to eight coal-fired plants and 44 ash ponds. If TVA has its way, 13.4 million tons of toxic coal ash will be capped in place.NORTH CAROLINADuke has 32 ponds at 14 plants in the state and ranks ninth in annual production of coal ash. Though Duke said the amount of ash generated is falling because of plants’ conversion to natural gas, the utility has resisted calls to excavate all of its coal ash and store it in lined landfills, and plans cap-in-place fixes at six of its plants.Find more state-by-state info on ash contamination at read more

No one likes a bully – so block them!

first_imgSome people just like to pick a fight.What do you do when someone picks a fight with your credit union on social media? Or maybe they are baiting you to engage with them? What do you do? Ignore them? Engage with them? Call them out about how they are wrong? The answers are a mixed bag.In the past month, I’ve noticed a significant uptick in people getting pissy with credit unions and those in the CU industry. The first thing you have to ask is, “Why is this person ‘attacking’ me on social media?” Once you understand that, then you can take the appropriate action.The motives for people venting/complaining/coming after you on social media tend to fall into a few areas. And here are some proven ways to help out:They have a legitimate member complaint: typically people who post a complaint to your credit union’s Facebook (or any other platform) just want to have their problem solved. This should be handled as quickly as possible. Let them know that you read the post and that you’re working on an answer. This will buy you some time and it will give your member some satisfaction that they are being heard. After that initial post, the clock is ticking. So try to have a solid answer to their complaint within 24 hours and post your response publically. Most of the time this will work and resolve any issues your member might have.They want the world to know their problems: the venting member, who posts to your social media profile, doesn’t want an answer. They just want to know that you are hearing them. There’s really only one response to give, “We appreciate you letting us know about your concerns. We are always looking to improve and we will take this to our team and discuss how we can make our credit union experience for you and others better.” Again, most of the time, that’s all you need to do.They have a chip on their shoulder: There are people (you probably have relatives like this) who just cannot be pleased no matter how much good you’re doing for the community, for your members and even how noble the CU message might be. Some people just love to hate and love to bait people into their misery and into a conversation that’s not “winnable.” These people cannot be “won over” or “reasoned with” as you would with your typical member. And a lot of times, these people aren’t even members, but people looking to start a fight or just get under your skin so you’ll engage with them.I’m giving this last category more space because it’s the hardest one to deal with, plan for and react to. The first rule of anyone complaining or raising a question on your social media platforms is to respond quickly with a minimum generic response of “Thank you for reaching out to us.” That way you are on record publically (or at least with those who see your feed) that you’re responsive and polite. After that, when the complaining and baiting continue, direct them to a customer service email and explain that “We have a member service email set up for member complaints and issues. Please send all of your questions and comments to this email. Thank you.” To be honest, it probably won’t work. But it’s a good thing to put out there publically because you ARE a credit union with a good and socially-responsible brand.If this last step doesn’t work and the person continues to post complaints or off-topic issues to engage you in a conversation that won’t benefit anyone – BLOCK THEM! The blocking tool is seriously one of my favorite things and more brands should take advantage of it. Why? Because, you’re on social media to engage with members and the public to hopefully have healthy conversations and to provide value to your digital audience. Some people just don’t want that and only want to cause problems because, unfortunately, there are some a**holes in the world.So, keep pushing through the negativity with your positive and truthful CU message on your social media profiles. The negativity and trolls will quiet down once they see that they’re getting nothing from you to feed their need to be bullies. 46SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michael Ogden Michael has been in the social media business for more than a decade inside the credit union, technology, financial and food industries.

Suzanne Bonamici (D-Ore.), Deb Haaland (D-N.M.), and Don Young (R-Alaska) led 62 of their colleagues in calling on House leadership to remove restrictions on credit unions that prevent them from fully serving small businesses in their communities during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle thanked the representatives for their support.“This letter will ensure that credit unions can be there for small businesses looking to get back to work helping Main Street communities quickly recover from this unprecedented crisis,” he said. “We thank Reps. Bonamici, Haaland and Young for their leadership in this crucial bipartisan effort.”The bipartisan group requested that the next coronavirus response package increase the arbitrary cap that prevents credit unions from lending to more of their small business members. Currently, the member business loan (MBL) cap restricts credit union business lending to 12.25% of assets.last_img read more
