House’s owners, both husband and wife are both airplane pilots, which is a career that takes long work periods in a very small area like cockpit. They all rarely have body movement or touching natural air when working, meanwhile each other’s schedules don’t match completely. To solve those problems, we thought of how to create spaces to enable them to take deep breaths of the fresh air and able to see each other every time they want.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatSave this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatThe house is located in a very good location with low level of air pollution in a far deep alleyway (soi Vibhavadi 60) and far from main road, the place located on an inheritance land, surrounded by their relatives, allow this house to have plenty of spaces to plant trees around the house.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatSave this picture!Second Floor PlanSave this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatAn area size of 200 square seems too big compare to owners’ required usable area, therefore, there is no need to design a house too compact. We separated house elements into 3 zones, e.g. Living area, bedroom, and guest area. Inserting spaces between these zones with green courtyard, results in meeting owners’ needs mentioned above.Save this picture!© Rungkit CharoenwatTo optimize an architecture surface to touch the nature as much as possible, both from experiencing green view from their eyes, or from opening all glass folding doors to create natural ventilation, able to feel the fresh air.

Home / Daily Dose / Analyzing California’s Response to Wildfire Insurancecenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago After the California wildfires of in 2017 and 2018, state insurers were hit with record-breaking losses of over $25 billion. In response, on November 14th, 2019, California Department of Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara ordered the FAIR Plan Association, a state-established “insurer of last resort” ran by a pool of private carriers, to offer comprehensive homeowners insurance, adding traditional perils like water damage, theft, and personal liability to their fire coverage. A new report from CoreLogic analyzes the events leading up to this development, and how state insurers responding.First, CoreLogic notes that many traditional carriers reduced or cancelled their insurance coverage in high-risk wildfire zones. In response, the Wildfire Safety and Recovery Act (CA SB-824) of 2019 mandated a one-year moratorium on non-renewal of homeowners insurance for at least 800,000 homes in ZIP codes near recent wildfire disasters”The moratorium draws parallels to the aftermath of 1992 Hurricane Andrew, where property and casualty insurers in Florida were faced with over $16 billion in losses,” CoreLogic said. “In 1993, the Department of Insurance imposed a moratorium on non-renewals of residential property coverages in Florida for 90 days.”In October 2018, the Florida Insurance Commissioner issued a 90-day moratorium for carriers in counties impacted by Hurricane Michael. California’s lengthy one-year moratorium is proving a challenge for state insurers as they work to control losses amidst many years of consistent devastating wildfire events.The California Insurance Commissioner and state lawmakers also introduced Assembly Bill 2367, named “Renew California”. The bill would create a Wildfire Resilience Task Force, which would include the Insurance Commissioner, the Director of the Office of Emergency Services, and the State Fire Marshal, to establish minimum standards for fire-hardened homes and communities. The bill would also require admitted property insurers in the state to write or renew policies when the applicant or insured owns a residence with an estimated replacement cost consistent with the insurer’s underwriting guidelines and the residence and community meet the minimum standards for fire-hardening.

First female Speaker of the Iowa House, Linda Upmeyer of Clear Lake, reflects on her tenure

first_imgDES MOINES — Linda Upmeyer of Clear Lake closed out her tenure as Speaker of the Iowa House Monday morning. Last fall, Upmeyer announced she would not seek re-election to the House in November of 2020 and would immediately step down as the leader of House Republicans for the 2020 legislative session. In October, House Republicans selected Pat Grassley as Upmeyer’s successor and he was installed after a vote in the full House Monday morning. Upmeyer, though, was able to give one last speech from the speaker’s chair.  “As the first woman to serve as speaker of the Iowa House, I hope that my time has inspired girls and young women,” Upmeyer said. “When you dream big and work hard, nothing is unattainable.” Upmeyer’s late father, Del Stromer of Garner, was speaker of the Iowa House in the early 1980s. “Someday, God willing, I’ll have an opportunity to have a discussion with my dad. I’m sure he will be very proud of what we’ve accomplished on behalf of Iowans,” Upmeyer says. “I’m also sure that there will be a couple of things where he’ll say: ‘Girl, what were you thinking?’” Upmeyer, who is still a voting member of the House in 2020, told reporters she hasn’t lost any sleep about her decision to resign as House speaker. “From time to time I’ll think of a bill, perhaps, that I was interested in and say: ‘Oh, we didn’t get that passed,’” Upmeyer said, snapping her fingers. “But, you know, I still have this year.” Upmeyer says it feels nice to have a reduced workload now that she’s not in charge of raising money and recruiting candidates for House races.  “I traded cars because I wouldn’t have to put 25,000 miles on my car every year,” Upmeyer told reporters Monday. Upmeyer is completing her tenth term in the Iowa House.last_img read more

G20 leaders divided over Syria

first_img6 September 2013World leaders gathered at a G20 summit in St Petersburg, Russia remained divided over Syria after holding a working dinner to discuss the issue on Thursday night, according to the latest reports.Aljazeera.com reported on Friday that the leaders had “failed to settle their differences over the US push for military action against Syria” following an alleged chemical attack on civilians by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.The Syria issue is proving to be a problem for G20 leaders – the discussion they really wanted at this week’s summit was on the US plan to wind down its programme to stimulate the world economy.But Barack Obama seems preoccupied with Syria. The US president has reportedly managed to win the support of key allies for his plans to launch a “limited” strike on Syria. On Tuesday, Democrat and Republican leaders in Congress announced that that the US should respond to Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons.Russia has led the opposition to military action against the Syrian regime, backed by China, both of whom have cautioned against any military action without the sanction of the UN Security Council.Chinese vice finance minister Zhu Guangyao, speaking earlier on Thursday, warned the world’s most industrialised nations of the risks of military intervention, saying it would have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on the oil price.South Africa has taken the same stance, urging global leaders to rather allow the UN to intervene in Syria.Russian President Vladimir Putin, opening the G20 meeting, said that a global economic recovery was not yet assured and there were still risks of sliding back into crisis. “Our main task is returning the global economy towards steady and balanced growth,” he said.SAinfo reporter and SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
