Plan B Guatemala was created in response to the disaster caused by the Volcán de Fuego eruption in June 2018. The ASIAPRODE Association initiated the project to construct 26 homes in order to cover the needs of the affected communities. In an open competition, DEOC Arquitectos came up with a proposal that meets the established requirements, the user’s profile, and the natural context.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Cortesía de DEOC ArquitectosThe project consists of a permanent housing model for the displaced families: an 86m2 house within a plot of 8m by 19m. The construction is divided into two building blocks; the social-kitchen-bathroom zone is separated from the bedrooms by an interior courtyard. Circulation is minimized in order to guarantee the best usage of the different areas.Save this picture!Cortesía de DEOC ArquitectosThe separation of the living sector into two modules allows the house to adapt to the different conditions of area and site. Besides, the design allows for a vertical growth above the bedroom block, or a horizontal growth by adding another bedroom module if a bigger plot allows it.Save this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!Cortesía de DEOC ArquitectosThe house promotes a rural lifestyle, in touch with the outdoors, where the families can share spaces with the rest of the community, extended family and domestic animals. This is one of the reasons for a design with an open facade aesthetic, which in turn provides a more versatile use of the space. It also allows for the local lifestyle and customs to prevail and be passed down through the next generations.Save this picture!Cortesía de DEOC ArquitectosThe construction makes use of long-lasting building materials easy to find and work with, like concrete blocks, bamboo and steel plate roofing. Concrete blocks were used expressly in different dispositions, creating a permeable lattice that protects the inner areas from the outside, allowing for natural ventilation throughout the spaces. Even though this is a replicable housing model, the pop of color inside the concrete block holes allows for a sober yet strong statement for the families to project their personalities, giving the community a stronger sense of belonging.Save this picture!Cortesía de DEOC ArquitectosThis house has been conceived as a self-built home, in which the process is controlled by the family or community that will live there. It uses a traditional masonry construction method that allows users to adapt the measurements of the different areas to the building materials, reducing any left-over waste and reducing the construction schedule.If you want to know how you can help visit www.planbguatemala.orgSave this picture!AxonometrySave this picture!Cortesía de DEOC ArquitectosProject gallerySee allShow lessFLYT Bathing Installations / Rintala Eggertsson ArchitectsSelected ProjectsZet MINAMIAOYAMA / Torafu ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houses “COPY” Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more

Charities missing out on £75 million in interest, says Alliance & Leicester

With an average of £45,000 held in charities and non-profits’ deposit accounts, “not shopping around for the most competitive rate is costing these organisations substantial amounts in lost interest” argues the bank. Not all organisations even have a deposit account for their surplus funds: indeed, only 39% do so according to the research.

It is very easy to switch deposit account providers and I hope that these findings encourage more charities and non-profit organisations to open an account, which rewards their surplus funds. “Getting the best deal is not about haggling with your bank; it’s about finding out what is available in the marketplace.”Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank has put together some tips on how organisations can make the most out of their deposit funds:Don’t assume that current account providers will be able to offer the best deal, shop around and look beyond the traditional high street banks.Work out a sensible notice period and the minimum deposit amount you can comfortably live with before you begin your search to avoid confusion when comparing the relative pros and cons of different accounts. Be sure to pick an account that will offer a sound long-term investment, preferably with interest rates that track base rates.It is important to choose a deposit account provider who will not charge a fee to access deposits quickly to ensure the flexibility of invested funds.Comparison tables provide a quick and easy-to-use guide to the best deposit accounts in the market. Financial data providers such as Business Moneyfacts are a good place to start in the search for the right account.ALCB of course point out that they offer competitive banking products for charities and non-profit organisations such as the Community 30 Day notice account and Community Instant Reserve.The research involved a survey of 242 charity/non-profit treasurers in the UK, conducted by Continental Research telephone survey/TNS BusinessLine telephone survey in January 2004. It found that the average charity or non-profit organisation misses out on £400 a year in interest. The figure of £75 million was reached by multiplying this figure with the number of charities in England and Wales registered at the Charity Commission at 31 March 2004 (188,739).last_img read more

What is the perfect payments experience?

first_img continue reading » Here’s an exercise that may come off as too academic – like a debate over how many angels fit on a pinhead – but is really among the most vital for not only PYMNTS readers, but pretty much any other business operators: What is the perfect payments experience?That question formed a hook for a recent PYMNTS discussion between Karen Webster and Kurt Bilafer, executive vice president and chief revenue officer at Yapstone. The company, like so many others, is essentially living that question, as it powers electronic payments for sharing economy marketplaces such as HomeAway and VRBO, as well as travel and other platforms.The answer to that question can mean the difference between success and failure for any payments or commerce operation – the difference between consumer churn and abandonment, and lucrative, long-term loyalty. The ideal, most would likely say, is a payment experience that requires a consumer to basically do nothing, to take no hard steps to complete a transaction once a purchase is decided upon.

Katie Ledecky

first_imgKatie Ledecky is an 18-year old swimmer for the United States.  She recently graduated from Stone-Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda Maryland.  She swims the 400, 800, and 1500 meter freestyle events.  She has been compared with the great Janet Evans, the last American to dominate these events.At the 2015 FINA World Championships in Russia, she will be chasing after the World Record she has set and re-set the last 3 years.  She not only wins these races, but she dominates them like Evans did in her era.  In her last races, she won the 400 by 10 meters, the 800 by 45 meters, and the 1500 meter by the same distance.  The 1500 meter swim was the only one in which Janet Evans ever had a larger margin of victory.last_img

Hurst leads every lap in race to Quincy Deery checkers

first_img“I’ve always run good at Quincy. When I started running Late Models, it always seemed like I did pretty good, I’ve always been comfortable there.”  A caution with nine laps to go bunched the field back up and Hurst held off all challengers. Winner of Sunday’s $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing was Nezworski.  Hurst became the sixth different winner in seven events so far this season.  “Of course,” he added, “it always helps to start up front like I did tonight.” Next on the IMCA Late Model tour schedule is a $2,000 to win event Saturday, Aug. 24 at West Liberty Raceway. Jeremiah Hurst led every time around the track in winning the Deery Brothers Summer Series main event at Quincy Raceway Sunday night. QUINCY, Ill. (Aug. 18) – There was no catching Jeremiah Hurst Sunday night, on a track he’s predictably run well at.  Jay Johnson made like a rocket in racing from ninth to third, with three-time Deery champion Mark Burgtorf returning to series action on his hometown track and joining him on the higher side.  “The track was rough in the heat race but they worked on it and it was about 10 times better in the feature,” Hurst said. “This was a good win. It definitely makes the ride home better.” Hurst led all 30 laps in winning the Deery Brothers Summer Series main event at Quincy Raceway. His career fourth IMCA Late Model tour victory was good for $2,000.  Boone Speedway hosts the 499th event in tour history on Labor Day Monday, Sept. 2, opening night of the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. When bonus money is figured in, the Boone checkers will be worth as much as $3,500.  Feature results – 1. Jeremiah Hurst, Dubuque, Iowa; 2. Matt Ryan, Davenport, Iowa; 3. Jay Johnson, West Burlington, Iowa; 4. Mark Burgtorf, Quincy; 5. Andy Nezworski, Buffalo, Iowa; 6. Joel Callahan, Dubuque, Iowa; 7. Curt Martin, Independence, Iowa; 8.
