The client also requested a semi-detached guest quarters and a covered, outdoor living space that would not block natural light to the main floor of the house. Save this picture!The house responds to its site through a play of solid and open corners and a transformation of scale from the street to the rear yard. It is comprised of three parts – a cast-in-place concrete garage, the three-story block of the main house and the single-story, semi-detached guest quarters. Save this picture!The garage anchors the house to the northwest corner of the site while the semi-detached guest quarters is perched above, cantilevering out to create a covered walk to the entry. The main block occupies the opposing corner of the site. Its southeast corner has been entirely removed and replaced with a thirty-foot tall tube steel bracket that supports the sheltering roof above. A steel and wood framed deck is literally suspended from the bracket by a 1” diameter steel rod. The main and upper levels open to the resulting two-story space with 14 foot wide lift & glide glass doors allowing the house to spatially expand and contract in response to the seasons. Save this picture!site planThe southwest corner of the lot forms a garden adjacent to the entry walk. The corner of the house facing this garden is also glazed and contains an open riser steel stair that ‘floats’ within it, providing the sense of passing through the garden as one ascends and descends. The entry garden and modest scale of the garage and quest quarters are an appropriate response to the scale of the street and in dramatic contrast to the spaces beyond where one lives “in the trees”.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessPangolin House: Vision for Future House in Thailand / Pitupong Chaowakul, Wattikon K…Articles’Anemone’ Installation / Oyler Wu CollaborativeArticles Share United States Save this picture!+ 17 Share “COPY” Projects CopyHouses•Seattle, United States CopyAbout this officeAdams Mohler Ghillino ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasSeattleHouses3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on January 14, 2012Cite: “Leschi Residence / Adams Mohler Ghillino Architects” 14 Jan 2012.

Wine, can it be in your New Year’s diet?

first_imgNewsWine, can it be in your New Year’s diet?By admin – January 19, 2012 551 Facebook Linkedin WhatsApp Email Twittercenter_img Print AS THE New Year kicks into gear and gets going lie 2012 should, we are all looking at ourselves and wishing for an overhaul. Many things will be cut, or at least we will give it a few weeks at least. Cigarettes, chocolate, snacks…… all the usual suspects and with the very best of intentions. And of course – alcohol. Who could forget our old friend that has become our close acquaintance over the last month or so what with the festive celebrations.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up But all in all, our new year’s resolution, young or old, male or female, is to look after ourselves better.  It will mean forming some sort of regime to kick start the new you and boot out some indulgent habits.Now, at this point, I will say that I have a few New Year’s food resolutions that I will be trying to adhere to. But, before I banish alcohol, and in this case wine, from my menu, there are a few things you should consider before taking such drastic measures. Reducing your intake of alcohol might certainly be in order, but there is a lot of medical evidence that shows that moderate alcohol can be part of a healthy diet. Even beyond the proven medical implications of wine consumption, there are several factors that argue in favour of incorporating wine into a reduced calorie diet! A recent online study indicated more and it started with tannins. They are one of the fundamental components of wine, and red wines in particular. They add structure to the wine giving wine that mouth puckering, drying quality. That puckering quality is the astringent action of the tannins on the lining of your mouth. It literally draws the skin tightly together.Now imagine what happens in your stomach when you enjoy a glass of wine before dinner. Those same tannins work their magic on the lining of the stomach, drawing it a little tighter and perhaps starting you on your way to fullness well before you’ve eaten your first bite.Eat slowerWe all know the saying that our eyes are bigger than our stomachs. Typically, it’s always said after an excessive meal, one in which we eat well past fullness because our bellies’ perception of fullness always seems to lag behind that of our mischievous minds. The key to helping those two levels of perception sync up is to slow down your eating. There are many ways to do that, from chewing thoroughly to having several small courses during a meal instead of one big one, but adding a glass of wine to your meal might help as well.Small indulgences will satisfyThink about it, a fantastic morsel of chocolate is much more satisfying than a brick of mediocre chocolate. A few thin slices of the best cured Parma will blow a stack of watery slices of ham out of the water when it comes to feeding your soul. We eat primarily to survive, though considering we are talking about going on a diet; it seems obvious we’ve gone past that point. Think of a small glass of good wine as the same.PairingYou might be surprised about mentioning that pairing wine with the food you eat is an important factor, but it is beneficial on two fronts. The first creates a result of hopefully using better, healthier ingredients while you cook. The second takes more effort on your part. It requires you to think more closely about what you put in your body, and not only the quality but the quantity of any given item you might be consuming as well.“Compared with non-drinkers, initially normal-weight women who consumed a light to moderate amount of alcohol gained less weight and had a lower risk of becoming overweight and/or obese during 12.9 years of follow-up.”Of course, there are many factors that might have influenced this conclusion. Interestingly, this seems to apply only to women and not to men, though apparently it has more to do with how men and women account for alcohol in their diet. It seems that women will tend to replace food calories with alcohol calories more than men, who simply add a few beers to their daily consumption.

In addition to contributing to DSNews.com, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news. Fannie Mae Freddie Mac GSE Profits Mortgage-Backed Securities Secondary Market 2014-11-06 Tory Barringer Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are set to send another $6.8 billion to the U.S. Treasury after posting a mild increase in profits for the third quarter.For its part, Fannie Mae reported net income of $3.9 billion for the third quarter, up from a profit of $3.7 billion in Q2 but down from $8.7 billion from a year ago.According to Fannie Mae, the increase was driven primarily by lower fair value losses and an increase in revenues. Also contributing to the third-quarter boost in profits was a recently announced settlement between Goldman Sachs and the GSEs’ conservator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), over faulty residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS).In a sour sign for the housing market, a shrinking portion of Fannie Mae’s earnings stemmed from credit-related income—$836 million compared to $1.9 billion the prior quarter. The company said the decrease was mostly due to a decline in its benefit for credit losses as home price appreciation continues to slow.Fannie Mae also acknowledged that a growing share of its revenues in recent years have come from increases in guaranty fees, a trend the company expects will continue as its mortgage portfolio contracts.Meanwhile, Freddie Mac reported net income of $2.1 billion for Q3, up from $1.4 billion the prior three-month period. The company attributed the increase to lower derivative losses (stemming from an upturn in long-term interest rates) and the same RMBS settlement that benefited Fannie Mae.Those improvements were counterbalanced against a drop in Freddie Mac’s provision for credit losses “driven by a slight worsening in loss severity,” the company said.As a result of their profitable quarter, Fannie Mae says it expects to pay $4.0 billion in dividends to Treasury in December, while Freddie Mac will pay $2.8 billion.By the end of this year, the two GSEs, which have been in conservatorship since 2008, will have returned a combined $225.5 billion to taxpayers—nearly $40 billion more than the amount the two companies were forced to draw to keep afloat in the aftermath of the financial crisis. Despite that, the GSEs’ agreement with the government stipulates they must continue to pay.That agreement has drawn the ire of the companies’ shareholders, some of whom are trying to take the government to court on claims it has robbed them of their share of the profits and kept the GSEs from being able to return to normalcy.Meanwhile, Washington continues to debate on what should happen to the two mortgage giants as policymakers work to revive private-label securitization and diminish the government’s role in the market. While there has been some support for plans to wind down the GSEs and replace them with a government corporation, those plans remain up in the air in the wake of Republicans’ takeover of the Senate. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market November 6, 2014 791 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more
