Built on a slope, with a view over the Baltic Sea. Situated on a steep, westerly slope, approximately 20m above sea level, below one of Eckernförde’s most popular residential streets, this residence enjoys one of the most stunning views over the bay and the open Baltic Sea.Save this picture!© Hagen StierThe site, 12m in width, 50m in length with an 9m elevation, required access from the upper end. This demanded a special design concept. The unique east view and the desire for sunshine throughout the day, were only a few of the priorities to be considered.Save this picture!© Hagen StierSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Hagen StierMaritime Design with large open Terraces. Obviously, a building had to be planned on a slope, with terraces stretching towards the east. Adequate privacy was of the essence, so each terrace, constructed with an awning, prevented a view over other terraces. The span of the ceilings over the total width of the house enabled an individual design concept for the interior.Save this picture!© Hagen StierSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hagen StierThe easterly, as well as the adjacent façades were completely glazed, providing a smooth transition between the interior and exterior. The “navigation bridge”, situated on the highest point of the building, with a 3-dimensionally curved roof, completed the “maritime” feeling of the design, further emphasized by the terrace railings.Save this picture!© Hagen StierSave this picture!© Hagen StierInnovative construction and custom made production. In order to carry out such ambitious building design, innovation was of the essence. Free movement between the terraces was possible through vacuum insulation. A special sky light construction, developed for the zenith lighting, was integrated into the terrace planks. A curved roof and the outer façade below had to be pre-constructed in two parts and bound together in the space of one day. This was perhaps the greatest challenge during the project.Save this picture!© Hagen StierThe overall roof, designed like a ship’s hull using a special architecture cad programme, was constructed in sections on CNC coordinated machines, assembled together and GRP laminated.Save this picture!© Hagen StierProject gallerySee allShow less5egg Flawil Apartments / Brechbuehler Walser ArchitektenSelected ProjectsExplore the Colors of the World Through PhotographyArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Eckernförde, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

The compromise that is involved in people’s lives to have to wait four years for an orthopaedic condition to be assessed is unimaginable and totally unacceptable. No private patient would wait that long. This is care based on ability to pay, not need”.In statement, the HSE West said that along with hospitals nationwide, they are validating their waiting lists to see which patients still need appointments and they are making use of texts as well as writing to eliminate patients who have gone private or don’t require appointments anymore.“Unfortunately, this region has a very long waiting list for orthopaedic outpatient services which stood at 10,970 as of October, 2012. The current figure as of May 1 is 7,477 and we expect to make significant improvements by the end of the month.“It is our objective to have the entire list validated by the end of May and to have no patient waiting longer than 12 months by the end of November for an out-patient orthopaedic appointment”.The HSE appointed one clinical specialist physiotherapist in September to assess patients on the orthopaedic waiting list.

Previous: IndiSoft Rebrands Technology Platform to Sunesis Next: Stern & Eisenberg Expands Team It wasn’t the perfect storm, but more like a perfect series of storms: Harvey, Irma, and Maria all hit in swift succession. And while 2017 didn’t set the record for the number of 1,000-year storms (there were six in 2016), it did rack up between $50 and $65 billion worth of damage to residential housing in just the continental U.S., according to CoreLogic.As a result, mortgage servicers with REO inventory in these impacted areas are still dealing with the aftermath of these storms. They are working with their vendor partners—field service companies, insurers, contractors, and asset managers—to determine what the repairs will cost and what are the new timelines for disposition.Obviously, no servicer can predict the timing or the path of natural disasters or afford to totally “batten-down” every property so it can withstand wind, storm surge, and flood damage. But there are certain best practices that servicers can put in place with their asset management partners to shorten the recovery period.Know before the storm. Understand the areas that have been impacted in the past by natural disasters and your exposure in those areas. If you don’t know your inventory, insurance coverage, and potential exposure before storm season begins, it may be too late.Stay up to date on the path of the storm. Many storm models are widely available that predict the path of the storm and they’ve become more accurate as the years have passed. Rely on what’s available, knowing that anything can change. Take stock of inventory that lies in the potential path of the specific storm, allowing for course deviations. You should know the worst-case scenario, including those homes that may or may not be impacted. Cover all your bases before the storm hits. Communicate with field service partners to prepare as much as possible. Share your list of assets with a trusted field service partner, asking them to add inspections of your assets immediately after the storm. Hit the ground as quickly as possible to assess damage. Time is of the essence, and the quicker you understand your total exposure, the better. Offer incentives, if needed, to gather an accurate assessment of your assets. Demand comprehensive post-storm follow up. While some storm assessments will wrap up in relatively short order, others will be elongated due to many factors (think Irma, Maria, and Puerto Rico). Be prepared to authorize direct travel and inspections by those not residing in the impacted areas. As experienced recently, storm damage only puts additional strain on limited local resources after a natural disaster occurs. Without pre-planning for these events to better understand your potential exposure, there are plenty of opportunities to be caught flat-footed and underestimate losses. Partnering with a firm that has experience with all types of weather is the key.

Twiddle has officially released a live album of recordings pulled from their Friday and Saturday performances at Tumble Down Festival 2018 from this past July. The 12-track live album, titled Live From Tumble Down 2018 and available now for streaming on Spotify and iTunes, is broken down into two sets, showcasing the stand-out moments from both July 27th and July 28th of the annual Vermont festival, and features the live debut of the “Orlando’s Themed Character Set”.Live From Tumble Down 2018 opens up with a fitting welcome from Vermont native and Tumble Down veteran Bernie Sanders, who actually came out to introduce Twiddle before the band’s Friday set was cut short due to rain. Set one (performed on July 27th) on the album includes performances of “White Light”, “Drifter”, “Doinkinbonk!!!”, and “Syncopated Healing”. The next part of the album (from July 28th) opens up with “Orlando’s”, which the band weaves in and out of during their entire character-driven set, including “Jamflowman”, “Hattibagen McRat”, “Frankenfoote”, “Tiberius”, “Carter Candlestick”, and “Cabbage Face”. The full tracklisting from the two nights of shows included on the live album can be referenced below.The arrival of the new album on Wednesday comes a few days after the popular jam band shared their pro-shot movie mashup jam recorded during their Halloween performance in Washington, D.C. last month. The band continues to tour as support for Soja throughout the rest of this week, before they close out their 2018 with a run of east coast performances later this month and into December.

David Blumenthal, the Samuel O. Thier Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, has been named chairman of the Commonwealth Fund Commission on a High Performance Health System.Blumenthal, who is the former national coordinator for Health Information Technology (IT), is also currently a professor of health care policy at Harvard Medical School and at Massachusetts General Hospital/Partners Healthcare System. He succeeds James J. Mongan, founding chairman of the commission, who passed away on May 3.Blumenthal was chosen by President Obama to serve as national coordinator in 2009, with the charge to build an interoperable, private, and secure nationwide health information system and to support the widespread, meaningful use of health IT. He succeeded in putting in place one of the largest publicly funded infrastructure investments the nation has ever made in such a short time period, in health care or any other field.“We are very fortunate to have Dr. Blumenthal as chairman of the commission during this critical period of implementation of the Affordable Care Act,” said James R. Tallon Jr., chairman of the Commonwealth Fund. “The commission will be well served by his deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities we face as we move the U.S. toward a high-performing health care system that will help set our nation on the path to a sound economic future.”The commission is charged with developing recommendations promoting a high-performing health system that provides all Americans with affordable access to high-quality, safe care while maximizing efficiency in its delivery and administration. In a series of reports leading up to and during the debate and passage of the Affordable Care Act, the commission made the case for comprehensive reform of the U.S. health care system.Professor Michael Chernew of the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School was also named a member of the commission. read more
University of Georgia scientist Craig Kvien, the creative mind behind Future Farmstead, believes that Georgia homeowners can reduce their power bill this holiday season just by being more sensitive to the amount of energy they’re using.“During Thanksgiving and Christmas, it’s easy for families to not think about how much power they’re using. Christmas lights are added outside, lights are put on the tree inside, and you’re trying to keep your house warm from the cooler temperatures that are present during the winter months,” said Kvien. “This adds up to a higher power bill that homeowners can guard against by just being more mindful of how much power they are consuming every day.”Kvien, a UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences professor, is an expert on energy savings. He was the program coordinator for the Future Farmstead project at the UGA Tifton campus. The Future Farmstead is an energy-independent experimental farm and farmstead house with a mission of developing and demonstrating technological advancements that will enhance farm efficiency.Georgia experiences milder winters compared to states in the Northeast. However, power usage in December, January and February reflects Georgians’ willingness to heat their homes during colder temperatures.Kvein says 50 percent of a typical power bill can be attributed to either heating or cooling your home.“The next big user of power is your hot water heater — hot water for your showers and clothes washing,” he said. “Be careful with your thermostat. The further away from ambient temperature you get the more money you’re spending.”A way to efficiently heat your home is through proper insulation. According to www.georgiapower.com, insulation helps to reduce heat losses when there are colder temperatures outside.Georgia Power recommends R-30 insulation for the attic, R-19 for floors and R-13 for walls. The “R” rating refers to insulating power. The higher the value, the more effective the insulation will keep heat from escaping the house.Here are some of Georgia Power’s other tips on saving power over the holiday season:Don’t let your holiday spirit be deflated by the thought of paying more for holiday lights. Replacing your current incandescent lights with LED lights can offset the added costs of using decorative holiday lights in November and December use 90 percent less energy than standard light bulbs and can last up to 15 times longer. “LED lights are a good way to be energy efficient. LED lights pay back quick,” Kvien said.Set your thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit during the winter. You can expect between a 3 and 4 percentage increase in energy use for every degree you set higher in the winter.For more information about Future Farmstead, an energy-efficient home of the future, visit www.futurefarmstead.org. read more
A visit to Belfast last week by China’s provincial pension funds manager, the National Committee for Social Security Fund (NCSSF), to meet its Northern Ireland counterpart could signal offshore investment intentions, according to sources.Those familiar with the Chinese pension system told IPE the trip could be a precursor of more to come as the NCSSF familiarises itself with the practicalities of offshore investment with foreign counterparts such as the Northern Ireland Local Government Officers’ Superannuation Committee (NILGOSC).NCSFF officials met with their counterparts at the £6.6bn (€7.9bn) NILGOSC, a global investor responsible for managing Northern Ireland’s largest investment fund.In a statement, NILGOSC chief executive David Murphy said the meeting covered pension fund management and governance. “We face similar challenges and were able to share forecasts for the UK markets in the light of Brexit and wider global markets,” he said.Nicholas Britz, senior associate with Z-Ben, a Shanghai-based asset management consultancy, said: “It’s an interesting one.”He said the dialogue with NILGOCS would certainly have touched on comparative pension management structures – and how respective best practices could be leveraged.But such dialogue would be standard and regular practice, he pointed out.“Europe remains a key destination for Chinese outbound institutional investment,” Britz said. “If I had to call it, I believe they are likely to be investigating long-term investment opportunities – whether PPP or with third-party managers – that would allow them to enter LP arrangements.“This plays to the fact they heavily mandate out the offshore portfolio, as opposed to running it in-house. I have no doubt global asset managers would be positioning to get some face time with the delegation.”Others who spoke to IPE believe that, with investors such as China Investment Corporation (CIC) or SAFE Investment Company, the investment arm of the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE), NCSSF would be “a passive investor” over a relatively long investment horizon.The NCSSF, which oversees CNY1.5trn (€206bn) in social security funds, recently named 21 companies, including seven with offshore affiliations, to handle domestic equities investment. read more

All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns has been cleared to return to the Minnesota Timberwolves following a highway automobile crash he called himself fortunate to have escaped alive. Towns spoke to reporters Monday, Feb. 25, 2019 before Minnesota’s game against Sacramento. (AP Photo/Jim Mone, File)MINNEAPOLIS — Karl-Anthony Towns was in the passenger seat on his way to meet the Minnesota Timberwolves at the airport when a semitruck slammed into the back of the vehicle at what he estimated was between 35 and 45 mph.As soon as the medical exam confirmed the injuries were minor, the two-time All-Star center quickly began thinking about whether he could still join his team in time for the next game. He knew he was fortunate, though, to have escaped the crash at all.ADVERTISEMENT “If I don’t have that seatbelt,” Towns told reporters , “I’m going right through the windshield.”Towns declined an ambulance ride at the scene. He acknowledged downplaying the doctor’s advice upon departure from the hospital to take it easy, immediately contacting the Timberwolves about a commercial itinerary that could get him to New York in time to play Friday against the Knicks. Towns called his sister with the news, opting to send his parents a text message to avoid exposure to their anxiety about his condition.He exhibited some concussion-like symptoms, so per league protocol, Towns was held out of that game and again Saturday at Milwaukee. That ended his streak of 303 consecutive games started, the longest to start an NBA career since 1970-71.Being present at the arena was ultimately more important to Towns than resting on his own.“I’m not a guy to stay back to watch them work. I want to be there in person. I want to high-five them coming off the court. I want to scream for them. I want to do everything I possibly can to be the best cheerleader I can possibly be,” Towns said.ADVERTISEMENT Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations read more
