The house in Bahía Azul is a stance towards designing on a slope. Or rather, it is the synthesis of such a stance, a pavilion that is slanted to take in the slope of the hillside where it is located, with the program developed on several semi-levels that are internally related – horizontally, of course – taking into account that the house has two opposing readings: the interior, where life happens in a more or less conventional space, in which the views are arranged by a series of openings on an external wall to the enclosure of the house. Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Fernando AldaAnd the exterior, in which the synthetic, abstract object, builds the place from the tension produced by the diagonal opposite to the irrevocable horizontality of the sea. The openings, from afar, acquire a different relevance than they would as mere windows. Save this picture!© Fernando AldaSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Fernando AldaThey deform the object, turning it into a sort of ruin, without detail, accessories or further developments after the initial synthesis.Save this picture!© Fernando AldaProject gallerySee allShow lessLeong Leong to Design New Mixed-Use Campus for Los Angeles LGBT CenterArchitecture NewsWhy Ancient Cities Can Still Teach Us About Urban PlanningArticles Share Year:  Projects CopyAbout this officeFrancisca PulidoOfficeFollowFelipe Assadi ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos VilosChilePublished on August 25, 2015Cite: “Bahia Azul House / Felipe Assadi + Francisca Pulido” [Casa Bahia Azul / Francisca Pulido + Felipe Assadi Arquitectos] 25 Aug 2015.

#WeeklyAddress June 19-25: Will the White House become silent?

first_imgNews Receive email alerts United StatesAmericas RSF’s #WeeklyAddress on US press freedom: Week of June 19-25 RSF_en Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says While this #WeeklyAddress may appear quieter than those in the past, RSF is concerned that this is a result of the silence that has been coming from the White House briefing room recently…Of the White House’s four press briefings last week, only one was held on camera. The rest of the briefings were off-camera and banned live audio recording. This follows a trend away from press access in the Trump White House; while Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s briefings initially pulled in millions of viewers, in recent months press briefings have been less frequent, and with fewer questions addressed. In the past two weeks, only two briefings have been on-camera.When asked on Friday why the briefing was off-camera, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said: “It’s great for us to come out here and have a substantive discussion about policies. I don’t think that the be-all and end-all is whether it’s on television or not.”Though news organizations appear to be abiding by the White House’s new rules, many are doing so with reluctance. CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta expressed his concerns following June 19’s off-camera, no-audio briefing. “I don’t know why everybody is going along with this,” Acosta said. “It just doesn’t make any sense to me.It just feels like we’re sort of slowly but surely being dragged into a new normal in this country where the president of the United States is allowed to insulate himself from answering hard questions.”The Washington Post has been keeping a close eye on the Trump administration’s dwindling interactions with the press. In a June 13 article, The Post reported: “During Trump’s first 100 days in office, Spicer and Sanders held 53 official briefings and ‘gaggles,’ informal, untelevised Q&As with small groups of reporters — a rate of about once every two days. In the 43 days since then, just 15 such sessions have been held, or once every three days. The briefings are getting briefer, too: Early on, Spicer engaged with reporters for an hour or longer; during his May 30 briefing, he took questions for just 11 minutes.”Since early on in his term, President Donald Trump has been cold to the media, skipping the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and participating in few interviews. In a tweet on May 12, he wrote: “…Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future ‘press briefings’ and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???” White House Correspondents’ Association is not pleased with these recent changes, either. WHCA President Jeff Mason wrote that he met with Spicer and Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to discuss these issues: “The WHCA’s position on this issue is clear: we believe strongly that Americans should be able to watch and listen to senior government officials face questions from an independent news media, in keeping with the principles of the First Amendment and the need for transparency at the highest levels of government.” Help by sharing this information United StatesAmericas NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News to go further June 3, 2021 Find out more Organisation June 27, 2017 #WeeklyAddress June 19-25: Will the White House become silent?

The Week Ahead: GSEs Prepare to Launch UMBS

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Mike Albanese Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: Fannie Mae Freddie Mac UMBS Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will launch their uniform mortgage-backed securities (UMBS) on Monday, June 3.Regarding the combined bond from the GSEs, a report by Bloomberg stated that this change would “virtually eliminate the distinction between bonds issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which guarantee nearly half of U.S. residential mortgages,” with the combined security intended to help improve market market liquidity and mitigate investor risk.While some believe this change will lower mortgage rates, critics argue the opposite may happen. Some see the combined bond as “more than five-year process to unify a roughly $4.4 trillion pile of agency MBS currently split between the two government-sponsored enterprises.”“It already was the most liquid market in the world in many respects. What are they trying to fix, exactly?” Walt Schmidt, Head of Mortgage Strategies at FTN Financial in Chicago, told Bloomberg.The final outcome can’t be determined until the combined bonds launch.“To some extent June 3 will be a bit analogous to Y2K, you don’t know if everything will be successful until after the fact,” Jay Bacow, head of Morgan Stanley’s MBS research team, told Bloomberg. He added that “the mortgage market is second to Treasuries in terms of fixed-income liquidity and it’s challenging for us to see it losing that distinction under UMBS (Uniform Mortgage Backed Securities).”In April, Freddie Mac announced that its Investor Reporting Change Initiative (IRCI) would revise single-family investor reporting requirements beginning in May 2019, including moving the investor reporting cycle from mid-month to end-of-month and updating remittance cycles.The GSE states that it is making the changes to promote alignment and industry standards for the UMBS.
