Surprise output rise aids stocks Share AN UNEXPECTED surge in manufacturing growth in two of the world’s largest economies yesterday soothed fears over the prospects for the global economy.The closely watched gauge of activity in US factories from the Institute for Supply Management defied expectations of a drop to jump to 56.3 last month from 55.5 in July, indicating the pace of output is beginning to pick up. China’s manufacturing sector also saw an unexpected recovery, after several months of slowdown, with the government’s purchasing managers’ index rising from 51.2 in July to 51.7 in August. A separate index compiled by HSBC bank rose from 49.4 to 51.9 rebuffing fears that government tightening measures would strangle growth.Both surveys reassured that the slowdown in the economy was not gathering pace triggering a rally in stock markets worldwide. The Dow Jones Industrial Average soared 2.5 per cent to 10,269.47 marking its best day for eight weeks, while the FTSE 100 jumped 2.7 per cent to 5,366.41. European stocks markets also shared in the exuberance – with Paris and Germany both gaining over two per cent. “While conditions will continue to cool as the year progresses, there looks to be sufficient traction remaining to sustain the recovery,” said David Hensley, director of global economics co-ordination at JPMorgan.

Legal & compliance International Game Technology (IGT) has secured an interim licence to provide its PlayShot integrated sports betting platform in West Virginia, with plans to seek similar approval in other states across the US. The licence will enable IGT to seal partnerships with casino operators in West Virginia that are looking to launch sports betting services when the state moves to regulate such activities. West Virginia is yet to legalise sports wagering, but recent reports suggest the state is closing on full regulation. Earlier this month, GeoComply became the first company to secure an interim licence in West Virginia, while FanDuel in June signed a deal to provide sports betting to the Greenbrier resort. William Hill also recently said it had agreed a sports betting partnership with an unnamed casino in the state, while Kambi in July lodged a licence application. Speaking about IGT’s new interim licence, Enrico Drago, senior vice-president of PlayDigital at the company, said: “Receiving approval from the West Virginia Lottery Commission to deploy IGT’s PlayShot sports betting solution throughout the state continues IGT’s momentum in pioneering sports betting across the U.S., and creates additional new market opportunities for IGT. “This distinction acknowledges the reliability, security and market-readiness of IGT’s PlayShot solution, and creates opportunities for IGT to further differentiate our sports betting solution in the marketplace.” IGT has been quite active in seeking out partnerships following the Supreme Court’s ruling on PASPA. In June, IGT agreed a deal to provide sports betting services to MGM Resorts International in New Jersey, while the firm is also working with FanDuel in the state.

Church of England Commissioners lose ExxonMobil fight Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Knoxville, TN Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Tags Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Anglican Communion News Service] The Church Commissioners for England have lost their bid to force energy giant ExxonMobil to report annually on the impact of climate change reduction efforts.More than 60 per cent of shareholders backed the company’s board. The failure to secure the motion at the company’s AGM in Dallas, Texas, May 25, came despite significant support from a large number of major institutional investors.Some 38.2 per cent of shareholders backed the resolution, which the Commissioners co-filed with the New York State Comptroller. But the board, whose objection to the motion went as far as them asking the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for permission to exclude the resolution from the AGM’s agenda, managed to secure 61.8 per cent of the vote.The commissioners – the investment arm of the Church of England – describe the vote as “a significant shareholder revolt” and signaled that it would continue to engage with the company on climate change issues.The resolution, co-filed with the New York State Comptroller, was backed by a number of large investors, including major fund managers and pension funds Amundi, AXA Investment Management, BNP Paribas, Calpers, Legal & General Investment Management, Natixis Asset Management, New York City Retirement Fund, the Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global and Schroder’s.“We are delighted to have got the highest ever vote for a climate change proposal at an ExxonMobil AGM,” the head of responsible investment for the Church Commissioners, Edward Mason, said. “This is a significant show of strength on climate disclosure at Exxon by shareholders.“Considering the scale of this vote, we urge Exxon to sit down urgently with its investors to agree the reporting it will provide on the risk that climate change policy poses to its business. Following the Paris Agreement, the time for climate risk reporting has well and truly arrived and the investor call for it is clear. It will not go away.”Last year, the Church Commissioners secured similar motions at the AGM of Exxon’s competitors, Shell and BP, with the backing of their boards. Those companies will now report annually on how they will be impacted by efforts to lower greenhouse gas emissions.

Rector Smithfield, NC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Hundreds of worshippers packed the Westchester Lutheran Church in Los Angeles to celebrate King’s birthday. Photo: Robert Howe.[Episcopal News Service – Los Angeles] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry invoked the prophet Isaiah and Robert Fulghum’s, “Everything I Need to Know I learned in Kindergarten,” charming and challenging a packed Jan. 15 celebration of Martin Luther King’s birthday in Los Angeles, to move forward in tough times is by seeking “ancient wisdom … tried and true and tested.”Curry spurred hundreds of Episcopalians and Lutherans at the historic joint celebration to laughter, applause, cheers and a standing ovation. He echoed Isaiah’s theme “Look to the rock” (51:1-2) with his characteristic energetic, extemporaneous and whooping preaching style, attributed to the influence of his grandmother, “a dyed-in-the-wool, rock-rib Baptist.”He recalled the dispersal of Israelites during the Babylonian exile. “This is what the prophet said: ‘Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and you who seek the Lord. Look to the rock from which you were hewn and to the quarry from which you were dug. Look to Abraham, your father and to Sarah, who bore you.’ Look to the rock.”While acknowledging current political uncertainty and ambiguity, Curry emphasized themes of unity, love and building relationship: “It is fitting that we should be observing the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King at this moment and this time. We need him seriously now.”Bishop Guy Erwin of the Southwest Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America called the joint gathering “historic” and welcomed worshippers, including Curry and other Episcopalians, as well as ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and representatives of the Los Angeles Police Department.Erwin also thanked Bishop Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles for the “great joy” of the close working relationship that allowed the two churches to collaborate on the King celebration. Later, at a panel discussion, he also heralded a joint collaborative anti-gun violence task force.Bruce conveyed greetings from Los Angeles Bishop Jon Bruno, who was unable to attend after a minor slip and fall on ice during a visit to Oregon. “This is our first real joint multicultural Martin Luther King service between the ELCA and the Episcopal Church, and I hope it’s not the last. We can top anything,” Bruce said.Worshippers packed the multi-lingual celebration, held at Westchester Lutheran Church, near downtown Los Angeles. It featured the rousing music of Canon Chas Cheatham and the Episcopal Chorale Society, and Lutheran choirs. The service, at times both poignant and humorous, may be viewed here.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry served as guest preacher at the historic joint Episcopal-Lutheran celebration and participated in a panel discussion afterward. Photo: Robert Howe.Amongst applause, Curry told the mayor, who also addressed the gathering, “We need political leaders like you. We need you.”Garcetti told worshippers the diversity and purpose of the gathering “reminds us of what is possible. I feel at home here, the product of a Catholic father and Jewish mother who compromised and sent me to an Episcopal school,” he said amid laughter.Acknowledging the current tense political climate, he echoed King’s edict to “stand in someone else’s shoes … and let their stories open our hearts and souls.” Especially those who are vulnerable, like “students (who) will go to school this week in our city wondering if their parents will be home when they get home as the administration changes.“Students who will be making decisions whether to drop out of school because they won’t have hope or a job. When we see people returning from prison wondering will I have another pathway when I get back.”Now is the time for both prophets and pastors, Garcetti said. “We must chart, as Dr. King did, where we need to go, but we also need to put out our hand to our neighbor and make sure we take them with us.”Paraphrasing former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, he said human rights “begin in places so small, they’re not found on any human map: the places we work, the places we live, the places we worship.”Noting that King’s dream encompassed both racial and economic equality, he challenged worshippers to use “the power that we have” by standing together. That power, he said, enabled Los Angelenos recently to increase the minimum wage to $10.50, compared to a $7.25 federal minimum wage, and also to pass a homeless housing initiative.“Know that what we feel in our hearts, what we think in our heads and what we must move forward with in our guts in these coming days, is that Dr. King would expect us not just to sit here and complain but to go out there and do something.”Curry’s sermon evoked the image of the “Sankofa” bird, a Ghanaian symbol “that reminded people that the way into an uncertain future is by knowing how to look back and to glean wisdom from the past and strength from the ancestors so that you can go forward in uncertain and ambiguous times.”He recalled the 1991 discovery of a colonial-era slave and free African burial ground in lower Manhattan, now a national monument. Etched into one of the surviving wooden caskets, workers discovered that symbol, of the Sankofa, which translated to English means roughly “go back and get it.”“The Hebrew prophet understood this,” Curry said, referring to Isaiah, who preached during the Jewish dispersion. “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness … in a time of real polarity and uncertainty and profound division…. Listen to me, you who seek the Lord. Look to the rock … to the ancient wisdom. Listen to the old, tried and true and tested ways.”“The prophet (Isaiah) knew it … he was doing Sankofa. Look back to the wisdom of the past. Bring it into the present to go into the future. This was at a time when Jewish people found their world disrupted. Their world had been one way, one day, and the next, a nightmare.“These were days when as James Weldon Johnson (“Lift Every Voice and Sing”) says, these were the days when hope unborn had died … and it is in this context that the Hebrew prophet spoke to his people. Listen to me, you who seek God’s dream in the midst of a nightmare … you who believe in love.“Look to the rock whence you were hewn and the quarry whence you were dug. Look to Abraham. Look to Sarah. Look to Martin. Or, better yet, look to Jesus. The truth is … we ignore the wisdom of the past at our peril.”Citing the lessons in Fulghum’s book, such as sharing your things and playing fair, Curry sparked laughter by asking: “Can you imagine Congress with this?”Returning to the “deep roots of who we are” by honoring the nation’s foundational principles of inalienable rights, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, Curry said “there, we will find our way forward as a nation.”“But,” he added that, “for us who are Christian, who follow in the way of Jesus, these are going to be some tough times. Because there will be times when we will feel like we must react to hatred and bigotry and wrong with more hatred and bigotry and wrong. There will be times when we are so hurt and angry that we want to respond in anger.”He cited the “Letter From a Birmingham Jail” a turning point in the civil rights movement, in which King instructed activists to meditate on the life and teachings of Jesus as they prepared to march. “Remember the nonviolent movement seeks justice and ultimately reconciliation; never victory,” King wrote.In a message echoing the tenets of Jesus they were also instructed to live in love “so that all God’s children may one day be free.”Not, said Curry, “because it’s easy, but because love is the only way.”He added: Fashion a world “that treats everybody like a child of God … then America will truly be America and then when we celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday, what a great day it will be. We’ll be able to say Free at Last, Happy Birthday Martin King.”Curry joined a panel discussion after the service. Panelists said the church can most effectively begin to live out King’s dream by building relationships in their communities.The ELCA’s Eaton said a pastor formed a relationship with local police in the wake of the 1999 Bronx, New York, killing of Amadou Diallo. Diallo was a 22-year-old West African man shot more than 40 times by police who mistakenly thought he was carrying a gun.Rather than adopting an “us-versus-them mentality,” that pastor adhered to King’s vision of “us together,” she said.Commander Phil Tingirides of the Los Angeles Police Department’s South Bureau, said the police partner with churches regularly because “there is an expectation you are leaders within the community, a place where people come to hear how to be good people, to hear how to reach out to people in need.”“The vast majority of people involved in crime are people in need” who have issues with love, anger management, and issues economically and mentally, he said.“This service we went to today to me was amazing; you had people from so many diverse backgrounds, different religions, differing beliefs and that’s how we are going to solve a lot of the race issues,” he said. “By getting to know each other, by reaching out and understanding each other. Churches are a place for that. You have a huge role. It’s not one that ends on Sunday when the doors close.”Los Angeles Episcopal Bishop Coadjutor-elect John Taylor said that, while the early years of the civil rights movement were about changing discriminatory laws, in later years King spoke out against the Vietnam War and “called for a true revolution of values, to try to think of a way for society to overcome structural and economic inequities and move forward together.”Curry agreed that churches can be “bridge communities bringing together people … that we might not be in relationship with. That, in itself, is part of the knitting together of the fabric of the social contract that we need in this country that’s the basis for any democracy to be able to work.”To an 18-year-old who pondered how young people might help make a difference, Curry said: “You have to be wise, be smart. Pay attention to yourself. Don’t be afraid to stand for what’s right and to help somebody who doesn’t have anybody to help them.“The truth is, there are more good people out there, there are far more good people out there … but a lot of times they get scared off by the loudest people around. And if somebody stands up and brings the good together, the truth is you can win the day.“You can, but it’s tough. But don’t give up.”–The Rev.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The annual United Nations Conference on the Status of Women draws 9,000 women and men from all the regions of the world to the U.N.’s New York headquarters.“It (the Commission on the Status of Women) is one of the largest feminist gatherings in the world,” said first-time UNCSW Episcopal delegate the Rev. Martha Korienek, interim rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.Still, as impressive as the attendance figure is, more important, she added, is that the delegates advocate for an estimated 3.7 billion women and girls worldwide.The 63rd UNCSW, meeting March 11-22, is focused on social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.“Ensuring equal access, and gender equality, is good not just for women and girls, but for everyone,” said Lynnaia Main, who represents The Episcopal Church at the United Nations and coordinates and leads the Episcopal delegation.“As we prepare for the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action next year, we are aware that no country has yet achieved gender equality,” she said. “We have heard from the U.N. secretary general that, at the current rate, it will take 217 years to achieve gender equality. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry reminded us in his video to the UNCSW delegates that Jesus believed that women and men are equal and honored women by his example. We need to follow Jesus’ example and, at the same time, step it up for gender equality.” Director of Music Morristown, NJ An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Cathedral Dean Boise, ID The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceOn March 17, Anglican and Episcopal delegates gathered at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, first for a tour of the Gothic and Romanesque cathedral, and then for an evensong and welcome from the cathedral and from New York Bishop Andrew Dietsche and the Global Women’s Fund of New York.“There’s an old saying, ‘the sun never sets on the British Empire,’” said Dietsche, adding the sun never sets on the Anglican presence. “Anglican and Episcopal women, our sisters, since the beginning of the UNCSW, have had a strong presence and have made a difference in the lives of women and girls everywhere.”Our Lady of Ferguson, an icon written by Mark Dukes, was just one artwork related specifically to women featured on a tour of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City by the Anglican and Episcopal delegates to the 63rd UNCSW. The icon depicts Mary as a black woman with her hands up. A small black silhouette of Jesus with his hands in a similar position, but in a gun’s crosshairs, is written over her womb. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceEstablished in 1946, the UNCSW is the foremost intergovernmental agency dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. Although The Episcopal Church has had a presence at the UNCSW since 2000, it has sent a delegation to official UNCSW proceedings only since 2014, when it gained consultative status with the U.N. Economic and Social Council.For a list of Episcopal delegates and staff representing Presiding Bishop Michael Curry click here, and click here for the Anglican Communion delegation.Even though the United Nations is considered an international territory, delegates from countries that require U.S. entry visas must apply for them. Each year, the U.S. denies a significant number of delegates access; this year, the U.S. denied entry visas to the Anglican delegate from Burundi and the Episcopal delegate from Colombia. The Episcopal and Anglican delegates represent women from the United States, Ghana, South Africa, New Zealand, the Solomon Islands and Scotland.The Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion are members of and participate in advocacy with Ecumenical Women, a faith-based international coalition of church denominations and ecumenical organizations that have status with the U.N. Economic and Social Council; these bodies share and are committed to a common mission and vision.Both The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion are signatories to Ecumenical Women’s joint written statement, found here.During the commission’s annual two-week session, representatives of U.N. member states, civil society organizations and U.N. entities gather at the U.N. headquarters in New York. They discuss progress and gaps in the implementation of the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the key global policy document on gender equality, and the 23rd special session of the General Assembly held in 2000 (Beijing+5), as well as emerging issues that affect gender equality and the empowerment of women. Member states agree on further actions to accelerate progress and promote women’s enjoyment of their rights in political, economic and social fields. The outcomes and recommendations of each session are forwarded to the U.N.’s Economic and Social Council for follow-up.In her evensong homily, New York Assistant Bishop Mary D. Glasspool talked about how it “takes real willpower to do something counterintuitive” and referenced the day’s Gospel reading, Luke 13:31-35, in which Jesus says in reference to Herod, “Go and tell that fox for me, ‘Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow and on the third day I finish my work. Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem.’ Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing.”– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

The mountain retreat is a small structure set within a high country station occupying 1,300 hectares on the south facing shores of Lake Wakatipu, Central Otago. This region of New Zealand is also known as the Southern Lakes. It is an alpine environment formed by heavily glaciated schist mountainscapes and vegetated below the snow line with beech forest. Early European occupation of the region began in 1840 with explorers seeking to extend pastoral activities established in the gentler environments to the north and east of the Southern Alps. This occupation was intensified by the discovery of the Central Otago goldfields in the early 1860’s. Both forms of occupation constructed structures for shelter and utility with the stackable weathered schist readily available around the rivers and glaciated mountain slopes. Save this picture!This retreat is designed for a young family who do not reside in New Zealand. It is intended to maximize the sense of living in the landscape and reference these early structures. The retreat is intended for use by varying numbers of people across all seasons. Save this picture!The design is a simple arrangement of spaces within a predominantly open plan. A main sleeping space opens over the living space and is serviced by a centrally located bathroom. Sleeping accommodation is augmented by a bunkroom with double bunk, allowing accommodation for anything from a single adult up to two families with children. The overlap and combination of sleeping, living and bathing functions allows for flexibility of use, introducing variety and a certain complexity to the inhabitation of a small building. Save this picture!Entry is gained from the roof with the building concealed from view when arriving at the site. Steel handrails and the flue of the fireplace are the only indications of the space below. Plan and section show the building to be a void removed from the mountain slope. The internal space is extended beyond the natural ground surface with a structure of reinforced concrete blanketed by gravel ballast over the roof and heavily rendered schist cladding to the walls. Electrical power is provided to the remote location, however the retreat provides it’s own on site wastewater management and bottled gas energy source. Water is sourced from a nearby mountain stream, tank stored and UV filtered. Save this picture!The external appearance of the building uses the heavily rendered stone to express a cubic form embedded in the side of the mountain amongst beech trees. The cave-like space is expressed as a horizontal void removed from this solid. Vertical supports have been avoided to enhance the sense of a slice of space removed from the hillside. A suspended log fire anchors the cantilevered corner and provides a hearth against the backdrop of beech trees and the lake when viewed from within. The southwest oriented mountain slope was chosen for its position in the existing beech forest and available mountain and lake views, however this orientation poses a challenge for solar access in the alpine winter. The retreat is set into the surrounding rock and enclosed with floor to ceiling insulated glass units sliding in steel frames. The space is therefore insulated from the alpine climate, including the diurnal extremes of the Central Otago summer. Heavyweight construction provides significant thermal mass. The glazed elevations are further screened by the surrounding beech forest, filtering the summer light from the potentially intensive southwest orientation. Heating set within the insulated floor slab provides additional comfort when required in the extremes of winter. Save this picture!The colours and textures of the cladding integrate the building into the gravel tracks, exposed rock faces and scree slopes of the alpine environment. The interior space is defined primarily by exposing and sandblasting the concrete slabs of the wall and floor structure. A polished plaster ceiling complements the exposed wall slabs to promote the sense of space carved out as a cave. This heavyweight construction is refined by the introduction of blackened steel sections and rough sawn cedar boards. Save this picture!The architecture seeks to be a subtle insertion in the alpine landscape. The internal environment is both muscular and refined, referencing the toughness of the environment while providing comfort required for a retreat in the mountains.Project gallerySee allShow lessNational Library / KSP Jürgen Engel ArchitektenArticlesSecond Home Restaurant / Andre KikoskiArticles Share 2008 Mountain Retreat / Fearon Hay Architects CopyAbout this officeFearon Hay ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesQueenstownHousesNew ZealandPublished on July 27, 2009Cite: “Mountain Retreat / Fearon Hay Architects” 27 Jul 2009.

DILIDO HAUS is a single family home designed with a unique vision, the expression of both, personal story and architectural history. The intention was to achieve an architecture of dignity and honesty. The ideas built upon the strong foundations of Miami’s rich history, geography and culture, while using the latest construction technologies and high quality materials. The front façade of Dilido Haus expresses the key characteristics of MIMO, an architectural style that evolved from Art Deco and Streamline. A rectangle with horizontal proportions, flat roof broad overhanging eaves echoed by horizontal projections of balconies, creating what appear to be two thin continuous gray lines drawn across the white façade and dividing it into three elements: roof terrace, second and ground floor.Save this picture!Courtesy of Gabriela Caicedo-LiebertTwo identical white, round cornered, windowless blocks form a mirror image of one another facing a generous interior courtyard, partially enclosed by a double height store front glass wall. A thin bridge connects the both volumes. The solidity of the blocks contrasts with their interior openness to the courtyard and the exterior balcony projections that expand the interior spaces. The horizontal planes appear to be suspended by traditional, thin round steel columns. The curved wall separates the car port from the exterior steps leading to the main entrance landing, strengthening the central axis shift to the west and producing a subtle but noticeable asymmetry. From the front door, the main axis is projected onto the floor as a mosaic line, running in serpentine motion across the central interior space to the exterior covered back patio, dipping into the pool and finding and end point on the wall of the water feature.Save this picture!Courtesy of Gabriela Caicedo-LiebertSave this picture!Plan 1Save this picture!Courtesy of Gabriela Caicedo-LiebertDilido Haus was built using poured in place concrete. Due to the sandy terrain of the island, more than 30 pilotis, approximately 12 meters (40 feet) deep support the foundation. The glass windows and doors resist 110 Km/h (177 miles per hour) winds.

Well-loved soap star, Sue Nicholls, who plays Audrey Roberts in Coronation Street, has teamed up with leading veterinary charity PDSA to launch a new Gift Aid fundraising initiative to help pets in need of vets. Amazingly, Gift Aid doesn’t cost donors a penny as the funds come from cash claimed back from the taxman!Until recently Gift Aid relief for charities was only available on cash donations. However, PDSA has been among the first charities to spot the potential for all goods donated to charity shops to benefit from Gift Aid.It couldn’t be easier to help PDSA raise thousands of extra pounds to help sick and injured pets. When items are given to one of PDSA’s 182 shops, the donor signs a Gift Aid form. Those donating goods must be UK tax payers. Once the goods are sold, PDSA gets back in touch with the donor, tells them how much has been raised by selling the items and confirms that the donor is still happy for the charity to benefit from the donation. PDSA then can claim 28 per cent extra from the taxman!Sue popped into her local PDSA shop, where she regularly donates items, and signed up, and is now urging animal-lovers across the UK to do the same.Sue says: “It couldn’t be easier to sign up to Gift Aid. I’m always happy to help the wonderful PDSA charity in whatever way I can. PDSA treats many thousands of sick and injured pets every day. All you need to do is bring us your donations, and provided you’re a UK tax payer, you can sign up for Gift Aid straight away.”Funds raised by PDSA shops help provide free veterinary treatment to the sick and injured pets of people in need. This year PDSA will provide over 1.8 million free treatments.To take part in the scheme simply donate your goods to your local PDSA shop and sign a Gift Aid declaration form. To find out your nearest shop, please visit www.pdsa.org.ukEndsNotes to Editors:2007 marks the 90th Anniversary of PDSA. Founded in 1917 by animal welfare pioneer, Maria Dickin CBE, PDSA is the UK’s leading veterinary charity.The charity provides free veterinary care for the sick and injured pets of those unable to afford veterinary fees and promotes responsible pet ownership. It works through a UK-wide network of 47 PetAid hospitals and branches and some 345 contracted private practices (PetAid practices).PDSA PetAid hospitals and branches will this year provide more than 1.8 million free treatments and more than 200,000 preventive treatments, such as vaccinations, neutering and microchipping. In addition, more than 36,000 pets are registered for PDSA-funded veterinary care through PetAid practices.In 2007 delivery of PDSA PetAid services will cost more than £41 million.
