From the Hadong Hwagae Market to the Ssanggye Temple, cherry trees make a tunnel in spring, where people flock to enjoy the exquisite scenery. The cherry blossoms covering the road look as if the giant dragon is emitting up cherry blossoms as it moves. Once I stepped into a crowd and entered a cherry blossom tunnel. Seeing the pale pink petals blowing off in the wind, cover ing the sky and falling on the ground, I felt the sense of being in a surreal dream. When cherry blossoms are gone, the road turns into a quiet and tranquil place.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkWe built a house on a hill overlooking that road. The name of the house, surrounded by stretched out mountains as well as this beautiful road, is Juck – e – jae. The name originates from the phrase in Hwagumkyeong (Buddhist scriptures), meaning ‘ to stay calm and admire. ’ Just like the name of the house, it was commissioned by a patron who just retired, moving to his wife’s hometown Hadong, to enjoy a quiet life. The site is located in the middle of Jiri – Mountain, and a stream flows smoothly between the mountain faces to join the Seomjin river. The owner of the house is a couple in their 60s who live with their elderly mother. Their children visit time to time. Because her family and friends are firmly rooted in her hometown, she felt comfortable to build this new home, unlike others moving to the countryside for their retirement in a strange place.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkThe owners have been living quite carefree city – life in their apartments for a long time. After deciding to build a house, however, they began to dream a house with a vegetable garden and a wide yard in a rural village, just like they had lived in their childhood. Naturally, the exterior of the house had to look like Hanok (traditional Korean – style house). But it is too expensive to build an authentic Hanok now and their lifestyle has changed a great deal to be accommodated by old Hanok. Therefore, we used a common light – frame wood structure, but followed the spatial language of Hanok, connecting the interior and exterior of a house.Save this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Youngchae ParkSave this picture!Section 2Storage for clients ’ collections and old household items were provided economically in a limited scale of the house. The wife ’ s study room was placed close to their mother ’ s room. The second floor was designed as ‘Room of relations’, to be provided as guest space for relatives and children. After setting the program, the owner turned his eyes to the outside of the house rather than figuring out how to decorate the house. Throughout the construction, the big concerns of the client were what to plant, how to build up the axes, how to build the gardens and the reservoirs, how to manage the persimmon trees and chestnut trees.Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkIn a way, concentrating in the landscape matter seemed to be the right direction. We forget so easily that house eventually sets off on the ground. We cannot simply say that design of a residence ends with the physical building. The design of a real residence begins when we start to recover the land around. Like a cloud of smoke rising from the house, like the smell of warm soup that a mother prepares for the family dinner, like a cosy garden without careful attention, like the warmth of the words that we share among the family, we experience the warmly emotional connections with people who live together. Only then the interactions create the perfect temperature of the house and become the temperature of the life. This is what we expect from the house. Save this picture!© Youngchae ParkProject gallerySee allShow lessKanda Terrace / KEY OPERATION INC. / ARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsPedongkelan-YN House / HYJASelected Projects Share Geum G ang construction, Sangcheol Lee “COPY” Photographs:  Youngchae Park 2016 ArchDaily Photographs Juck-e-jae in Hadong / studio_GAONSave this projectSaveJuck-e-jae in Hadong / studio_GAON “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/889154/juck-e-jae-in-hadong-studio-gaon Clipboardlast_img read more

I’m now also a member of the Parent’s Advisory Board so I can use our experiences to help others.”Emily Bell, Ice Cream Buyer at Morrisons, said: “We wanted to create a fun flavour that the whole family can enjoy, with 15p per each pack supporting young lives facing cancer across the UK.”So far support from Morrisons has enabled CLIC Sargent to give more than 5,000 grants to help families with the financial costs of cancer. The money has also funded a team of Nurse Educators who will work with community hospitals so confident cancer care can be delivered locally. That means less travel and disruption to family life.More ice cream fundraisingNew ice cream flavour to raise funds for Unicef’s #CookForSyria (30 June 2017)Blockchain pilot sees Ben & Jerry carbon-offset ice cream at their London store (12 June 2018) Albie Noble spots the CLIC Sargent ice cream in Morrisons.

Scalia, Tribunal Supremo y democracia

first_imgEl juez del Tribunal Supremo Antonin Scalia, conocido por sus decisiones reaccionarias, racistas, anti-mujer, anti-gay y contra la clase obrera, las cuales él disfrazó como eruditas y precisas interpretaciones del texto legal, murió repentinamente el 13 de febrero. Recordando su nombramiento a la corte en 1986, algunos pueden decir que su muerte llegó 30 años muy tarde. Teniendo en cuenta el dicho de que se debe decir solo cosas buenas de los muertos o nada en absoluto, no decimos nada.Pero sí tenemos algo que decir sobre el Tribunal Supremo de los Estados Unidos (TSEU). Reacciones políticas iniciales a la muerte de Scalia sugieren que habrá una batalla real dentro de la clase dominante — en este caso entre los dos partidos políticos capitalistas grandes – sobre el próximo nombramiento. Se espera que las próximas decisiones del TSEU resultarán en votos de 4-4. La batalla puede ser un conflicto tan amargo como las próximas elecciones presidenciales, aunque una sin el voto popular. La pregunta es: ¿Puede la clase trabajadora entrar en esta batalla interna de la clase dominante con demandas independientes?De las tres ramas del gobierno de EUA — la rama legislativa, el Congreso; la rama ejecutiva, el Presidente; y la rama judicial, el Tribunal Supremo — el Tribunal Supremo es la menos democrática. Sus miembros no son elegidos, son nombrados por vida por el Presidente y son aprobados por el Senado el cual está compuesto de millonarios, y ha sido el baluarte más estable de opresión y explotación de clase. El TS defendió a los dueños de esclavas/os en el siglo 19 y a los grandes capitalistas y banqueros contra la clase trabajadora y los pueblos oprimidos en los siglos 20 y 21, con solo unas pocas excepciones en tiempos de gran lucha de masas.En un artículo del 20 de julio de 1989, el presidente del Partido Workers World – Mundo Obrero Sam Marcy escribió que a pesar del proceso de ampliación de los derechos de voto a las/os afroamericanos, mujeres y jóvenes desde que fue escrita la Constitución, “ha habido un proceso social y económico simultáneo que es superior en fuerzas. Ese es el proceso de concentración del poder en instituciones no democráticas. Proviene de la concentración de los medios de producción en manos de una clase dominante que tiene el poder y lo distribuye en las zonas más propicias para ella. Así que no es accidental que el poder en última instancia deba ser ejercido por el Tribunal Supremo. Ese es más fiable para ellos, más conservador y que responde solo a aquellos que les han designado” (Para leer el artículo completo, ver tinyurl.com/hqbw146)Mientras que los partidos Demócrata y Republicano chocan entre ellos sobre si el Tribunal Supremo debe ser un obstáculo flexible o rígido para el progreso social, la clase trabajadora y los pueblos oprimidos deben utilizar la apertura creada por este conflicto para exponer la naturaleza antidemocrática de la corte y exigir el fin de su papel como órgano designado a defender el dominio de la clase de los súper-ricos.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

CFPB Takes Legal Action Against Mortgage Servicer for Noncompliance

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced Wednesday that they, after an investigation, found Fay Servicing, a Chicago-based mortgage servicer, in violation of federally mandated rules, and subsequently ordered restitution payments and system changes. The CFPB’s investigation found that Fay Servicing did not take the steps required to keep their customers informed about the various options for foreclosure relief, nor did they inform their customers when additional information or documents were required to process their application. The Bureau also claims that Fay Servicing did not send evaluations to customers who had completed applications for foreclosure relief with vital information as to what relief options were being offered, the deadline or deadlines to accept such relief, or the borrower’s rights in declining said relief, putting unnecessary responsibility on the borrower. CFPB also said that, even though servicers are prohibited from moving forward with certain aspects of the foreclosure process, Fay Servicing sometimes began and completed the foreclosure even while borrowers were being considered for foreclosure relief. The Bureau has ordered Fay Servicing must pay up to $1.15 million to consumers that were directly subject to the illegal practices listed above. Fay Servicing must also demonstrate that they engage customers on the verge of foreclosure with viable alternatives to foreclosure, and create policies and procedures that will maintain proper data tracking for borrower outreach. “The Bureau found that Fay violated the CFPB’s servicing rules by keeping borrowers in the dark about critical information about the process of applying for foreclosure relief,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “CFPB will continue to hold servicers accountable for violations of consumer protection laws.”Fay Servicing has agreed to pay the $1.15 million in redress to the affected borrowers. There will be no further penalty; and, moving forward, no monitor will be required.Fay issued a statement, “Fay has always been committed to delivering a high-quality customer service experience to borrowers while complying with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements. The isolated claims concern a small fraction of the more than 85,000 borrowers whose mortgages Fay Servicing has serviced since it was founded in 2008. While Fay regrets any instance in which it did not comply with a regulatory requirement, we believe the affected borrowers were well-served during the loss mitigation process . . . [t]he company reached this agreement with the CFPB in the interest of putting this matter behind it and focusing on the needs of its clients, employees, and borrowers.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post Home / Daily Dose / CFPB Takes Legal Action Against Mortgage Servicer for Noncompliance Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: CFPB Fay Servicing non-compliance Previous: Estimated Additional Deficit Reduction for H.R. 10 Reaches $9.5 Billion Next: Favorable Conditions For SFR Investment in Many Cities CFPB Fay Servicing non-compliance 2017-06-07 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe CFPB Takes Legal Action Against Mortgage Servicer for Noncompliance The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Staff Writer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago June 7, 2017 3,655 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more

Such an allegation has come from the side of the State. It is most unfortunate that during these testing times, a retired teacher has been left to fend for herself without the respondents taking adequate care and interest to clear her dues.”The petitioner retired from service on July 31, 2018 upon attaining the age of superannuation of 60 years. On June 6, 2018, she was arrested and detained in custody for more than 48 hours in connection with investigation of an FIR that was registered, alleging that she had committed offences punishable under IPC as well as the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967. In view of her continued detention beyond 48 hours, the petitioner was placed under suspension by an order dated June 15, 2018 issued by the Vice-Chancellor of the University with retrospective effect from the date of her arrest. For almost two years after her retirement, the petitioner was not paid her retiral dues. University’s counsel Arun Agrawal, while pressing the interim application, placed reliance on Rule 27 of the Maharashtra Civil Services (Pension) Rules, 1982 as well as the decision of the Supreme Court in Chairman-cum-Managing Director, Mahanadi Coalfields Limited v. Sri Rabindranath Choubey, to contend that the petitioner is neither entitled to payment of gratuity nor to release of pension having regard to commencement of departmental proceedings as well as judicial proceedings within the meaning of Rule 27 of the Rules.Petitioner’s counsel Advocate PD Meghe placed before the Court a decision of the Supreme Court in Municipal Corporation of Delhi v. Dharam Prakash Sharma and another, reported in 1998. The ratio of the decision is that gratuity provided for under the Pension Rules will not disentitle an employee from getting the payment of gratuity under the Payment of Gratuity Act.The bench observed-“Suspension, in law relating to disciplinary action, could either be an interim suspension or a suspension by way of penalty. It is well-known that while an employer initiates departmental proceedings against an employee, the employer may, in his wisdom, proceed to conduct and conclude the departmental proceedings even without placing such employee under suspension. Placing an employee under suspension, as an interim measure, thus is not a sine qua non for concluding departmental proceedings.Since as on date departmental proceedings have not been instituted against the petitioner by issuing charge-sheet, we hold that Mr. Agrawal’s reliance on clause (a) of sub-rule (6) of Rule 27 is misplaced.”Finally, coming to the issue of non-payment of gratuity and other retiral benefits, Court said- “We have also noted clause (c) of Rule 130 of the Rules prescribing that no gratuity shall be paid until conclusion of departmental or judicial proceedings and issue of final orders thereon. However, what is of vital importance is that as on 31st July, 2018, i.e., when the right to receive gratuity accrued in favour of the petitioner, there was no existence of judicial proceedings instituted against her. In terms of Rule 129A of the Rules, if payment of gratuity is delayed beyond three months from the date of retirement, interest is required to be paid; therefore, at least within such period the gratuity should have been released. The University cannot be allowed to take advantage of its own lapse and contend that it is justified in not processing the papers for release of gratuity in favour of the petitioner having regard to the provision of Rule 27 of the Rules. The argument is rejected as misconceived.”When the bench enquired from Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakare and Advocate Arun Agarwal about the quantum of money the petitioner is entitled to on account of gratuity. They were unable to apprise the Court of such quantum for want of instructions. However, it was ascertained from Adv Meghe that the amount would be almost Rs.14 lakh. Court said-“In the absence of proper assistance from the side of the respondents, we have no option at this stage but to accept the statement of Mr. Meghe as correct.”Thus, Court dismissed the civil interim application filed by the University seeking permission to deposit Rs.5 lakh with the Registry of the High Court as well as to modify the order dated August 13, 2020. The bench noted that the application is absolutely without merit and directed the University to make over the sum of Rs.5 lakh in favour of the petitioner within a week. Court clarified that since the petitioner is in custody, the sum may be transferred to her bank account by NEFT.Moreover, the bench noted-“Since the petitioner could be entitled to much more on account of gratuity and also that she is at least entitled to provisional pension in terms of sub-rule (4) of Rule 27 of the Rules and has not been paid a farthing since her retirement, we direct the State to release in favour of the petitioner an additional sum of Rs.5,00,000/-, on adhoc basis, within a period of thirty days.”Finally, Court was informed by the petitioner’s counsel that she had served as a teacher under the Respondent College between 1987 and 2009, and her own contribution of provident fund for such period of service has not been released. At this juncture, PP Deepak Thakre submitted that requisite steps would be taken to ensure that the petitioner receives her own contribution of provident fund for such period at the earliest. Court said-“We grant the State two months’ time to process the papers to ensure that the petitioner receives her dues without undue delay. Let the affidavits-in-reply to the writ petition be filed within four weeks; rejoinder thereto, if any, may be filed by the petitioner within two weeks thereafter. The writ petition may be listed for hearing after eight weeks.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Yale responds after white student calls police on napping black student

first_imgMichael Marsland/Yale University(NEW HAVEN, Conn.) — A Yale dean said the Ivy League university needs to work at becoming “truly inclusive” after a white student called police on a black classmate who had fallen asleep in a dormitory common area.“Incidents like that of last night remind us of the continued work needed to make Yale a truly inclusive place,” Lynn Cooley, the dean of Yale’s graduate school of arts and sciences, said in an email to students on Tuesday.The graduate student, Lolade Siyonbola, sparked outrage about racial profiling on Monday after she posted a video showing her long interaction with campus police officers and the white student who called them.“I deserve to be here. I pay tuition like everybody else,” Siyonbola, a 34-year-old graduate student in African studies, said after police asked her to present identification. “I’m not going to justify my existence here.”“I really don’t know if there’s a justification for you actually being in the building,” she said to the officers, after proving her enrollment.Siyonbola even unlocked her dorm-room door in front of the officers to prove she lived there after they insisted on seeing her ID.“We’re in a Yale building, and we need to make sure that you belong here,” one officer said in the video. The officers said the encounter lasted longer than expected because her name appears differently in the school’s system.Siyonbola, who ended up being questioned for nearly 20 minutes, said she had fallen asleep while working on a paper in a common room of her dorm. She told police that the female student who reported her suffered from mental illness and had called police on another student in the past.Another black graduate student told ABC affiliate WTNH-TV that the same woman called police on him about a month ago.Reneson Jean-Louis told police the woman said to him at the time, “‘You’re making me uncomfortable. I don’t feel safe around you. You’re an intruder. You need to leave. You need to get out.’”“This is, again, a blatant case of racial profiling that needs to be addressed at Yale, university-wide,” he added.Cooley said in her email that she’s “committed to redoubling our efforts to build a supportive community in which all graduate students are empowered in their intellectual pursuits and professional goals within a welcoming environment.”The incident is the latest in a string of recent high-profile encounters involving black people who have been wrongfully reported.Earlier this week, a group of black Airbnb renters in Southern California said they planned to sue Rialto Police Department over how it responded to a 911 caller reporting a burglary at their rental location. A similar situation unfolded in downtown Philadelphia last month involving two black men at a Starbucks where a manager reported them because they hadn’t purchased anything.Siyonbola didn’t immediately respond to social media requests for additional comment, but she wrote about the incident on her Facebook page Tuesday afternoon: “Grateful for all the love, kind words and prayers, your support has been overwhelming. Black Yale community is beyond incredible and is taking good care of me.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

More rain on the way for already-soaked Northeast

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The first half of the weekend was a washout for much of the Northeast, thanks to heavy showers and thunderstorms that continued throughout the day.Many areas received 2 to 3 inches of rain, while Caldwell, New Jersey, received 4.92 inches and New York’s Central Park received 2.9 inches, a new record for the day. Flights at Newark Liberty International Airport were delayed, and one entrance of New York City’s Penn Station was closed due to floodwaters.The atmospheric setup remains similar on Sunday with a tenacious stationary front remaining in place in the Northeast. That means more showers and thunderstorms will develop on Sunday.However, the worst is over for the Northeast. Showers on Sunday should be less intense and less frequent than Saturday. Rainfall amounts through Monday evening will range between 1 and 2 inches for most spots, with upwards of 3 inches possible in New England.Fire weather in Northern PlainsAt least three new wildfires were sparked Saturday in Montana, thanks to gusty winds, low humidity and extensive heat, according to Great Falls ABC affiliate KRTV.Temperatures were so high in the region Saturday that numerous records were broken, including Glasgow, Montana (107 degrees); Helena, Montana (102 degrees); Pocatello, Idaho (100 degrees); and West Glacier, Montana (100 degrees), which reached triple digits for the first time in recorded history.A high centered over Minnesota will steer warm air from the south into the Upper Plains again on Sunday. High temperatures will reach into the 100s in some places, with the potential of new records being set.Very dry air over the West, coupled with a cold front in western Montana, will produce gusty winds and the formation of dry thunderstorms on Sunday. Lightning strikes from these dry storms can easily spark new wildfires, while the gusty winds can facilitate their rapid spread. Red flag warnings remain in effect for much of the region through Sunday night.Monsoons calm downMonsoon thunderstorms rolled through the Las Vegas area again Saturday night. Dust storms and flash flood warnings were both issued by the National Weather Service for the region. Winds — some that gusted to over 71 miles per hour — and rain were so severe that, at one point, 62,000 customers of NV Energy were without power.Drier air is expected to move in from the west on Sunday, which will decrease the probability of monsoon thunderstorms for the next few days.
