This end of terrace Victorian two-storey over basement house in south Dublin required modernization and additional space for the needs of the clients growing family. The brief was to provide additional multifunctional living space and bedroom accommodation not provided for within the original house. The existing two-storey return was at a scale not befitting such a large house with cramped internal dimensions making the spaces unusable.

Hope Locker raises donations in the changing room

Advertisement  207 total views,  2 views today A new media platform that combines a video display with a coin-operated changing room locker is providing WaterAid with a new fundraising avenue.The Hope Locker has been created by production agency MediaMonks, and encourages microdonations by playing a short video explaining how to use the locker, and then when the user returns, asking them if they would like to donate their coin to charity.The locker is being tested by WaterAid, which has partnered with Proximity London to target the fitness industry. When people return to the lockers, a video asks if they have swallowed any water during their swim. They are then served a personalised message telling them that in the exact time they were swimming, dirty water killed one child per minute in the developing world, and told “Your £1 could give a child safe drinking water for 4 months” before being prompted to either take back their coin, or donate it.As well as collecting microdonations, the technology also allows the donor to register their details with the charity.Charlotte Forrest, special projects manager from WaterAid, said:“This idea is really different and innovative, and there’s a clear link to our vision and values as an organisation. We’re really excited to see how the idea can be further developed after the encouraging test results.” Melanie May | 28 January 2016 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Hope Locker raises donations in the changing room Tagged with: Fundraising ideas microdonations New media  208 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Birmingham Site Management Agreement for face-to-face fundraising starts

The agreement with the Public Fundraising Association will run at first for three months.The voluntary agreement between charities, Birmingham City Council and the Public Fundraising Association will manage when, where and how many fundraisers can operate in the city centre.For example, there will be no fundraising on the weekend and the total number of fundraisers in the city centre will be limited to 12, spread over three sites at any one time.  A programme of mystery shopping and financial penalties for rule breaches will back up the agreement.There are now 116 Site Management Agreements across the UK. The PFRA says that there has been a “significant fall” in complaints in these areas. Nearly 90% of councils which had introduced one would, according to the self-regulatory body, recommend the approach to other councils.Councillor Barbara Dring, Chair of Birmingham City Council’s Licensing and Public Protection Committee, said:“This three-month trial agreement with the PFRA will enable charities to continue to fundraise – albeit with fewer fundraising teams – without detracting from other activities in the city centre, and it is hoped that by working together a longer-term agreement can be reached.“We recognise the need for charities to engage face-to-face with potential donors, to enable their good work to continue, but it has to be balanced with the feelings of the public and retailers.”The PFRA’s Chief Executive Peter Hills-Jones, added: Advertisement Howard Lake | 1 July 2016 | News Birmingham Site Management Agreement for face-to-face fundraising starts  78 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Bill Ukropina’s Annual Holiday Lunch A Mindful Success at The Rose Bowl

Free from football players during the week, spacious and roomy with an array of empty wooden lockers, the space feels like it’s inviting occupation. And occupied it was at Bill Ukropina’s annual holiday lunch by a benevolent force of Pasadena business leaders and socialites on the afternoon of December 11th.With a buffet style luncheon of tasty food for the over two hundred guests, the casual style of this holiday fest captures the very heart of Bill Ukropina’s personal style. As Executive Vice President of Coldwell Banker Commercial North County with offices in Glendale and Pasadena, Bill is known for being one of the best networkers in all of Southern California. Keeping connected, listening with an attentive eye, and appreciating his clients’ success are the keys to why business leaders choose to work with Bill time and time again.At the Rose Bowl holiday lunch, it is a touch ingenuous to say the visitors’ locker room was free of all football players. Along with his wife Linan Ukropina, Bill’s holiday party was co-hosted by his son Conrad Ukropina, the talented kicker for the Stanford University football team. You might remember reading about Conrad Ukropina’s game-winning 45-yard field goal on November 28th that gave the nationally ranked Stanford Cardinals football team the win over Notre Dame. It was one of Bill and Linan’s proudest moments as parents.At his annual event, Bill does a lot more than just feed his guests. He also brings in an engaging public figure to give a dynamic presentation. Like Olympic Gold Medalist John Naber did at last year’s gathering, the speaker, almost always a published author, does a free book signing after the talk with Bill generously providing all of the books for his multitude of guests. Still, after reading halfway through, you might be wondering why the 2015 Holiday Lunch of Bill Ukropina was described in the headline as a “mindful” success.The mindfulness angle came thanks to this year’s speaker John Medina. A developmental molecular biologist and popular science writer, Medina spoke about the importance of executive function, a topic he explores in his latest New York Times bestseller, Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School. Executive function is the most advanced expression of the human brain that deals with cognitive control and emotional self-regulation.What proved to be so fascinating about John Medina’s talk was its evolution from beginning to end. At first, the audience was a bit lost as Medina discussed the evolution of the concept with a series of complex quotes by brilliant scientists. However, the initial complexity and intricacy of the cocoon of ideas Medina was spinning soon blossomed into an incredibly insightful butterfly that touched practically everyone in the room.The powerful point made by John Medina was that executive function is the only accurate barometer for success whether it is applied to anyone from second graders to corporate employees. The higher the executive function as measured by several basic tests, the more successful and happy the person. Improving executive function turns out to be the only way to make any significant forward progress in terms .The question on the tip of everyone’s tongue from Bill Ukropina to John Naber was how can executive function be improved. It turns out there is a very simple way to significantly improve executive function and slow down the aging process at the same time. In an ending that surprised just about everyone, John Medina revealed, “We know that you can increase executive function simply by aerobically exercising as little as three times a week for 30 minutes.” Such exercise leads to greater happiness and greater success.Such a doable revelation was a wonderful way to end another successful holiday lunch hosted by Bill Ukropina at the Rose Bowl. Since Conrad Ukropina and the Stanford Cardinals are taking on the Iowa Hawkeyes on New Year’s Day 2016, Bill and Linan will be back to watch their son in action. In honor of his continued support of the Rose Bowl, the marketing staff presented Bill with a special Rose Bowl football jersey with Conrad’s Stanford number and his last name. It truly was a fitting tribute to a wonderful afternoon.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.

Some landlords already have been fighting eviction bans at a state level.  Administration officials have said that it will be up to local courts to adjudicate eviction filings, but that the federal order should protect all tenants who qualify for the program should they face judicial proceedings. Housing advocates immediately began reacting to the news. Most commended the action, while adding that more needs to happen in order to protect both landowners and renters.  National Association of Realtors (NAR) stated “appreciation and support of administration efforts to ensure struggling Americans can remain in their homes.” But NAR President Vince Malta went on to say that “this order as-written will bring chaos to our nation’s critical rental housing sector and put countless property owners out of business.” “Any eviction moratorium must also come with rental assistance for property owners, the vast majority of which are mom-and-pop investors and are still required to meet their financial obligations even as they cease to receive income on their properties,” Malta said. “NAR strongly encourages Congress to pass immediate legislation that would instead provide emergency rental assistance programs directly to housing providers.” The National Multifamily Housing Council released a statement expressing dissatisfaction “that the Administration has chosen to enact a federal eviction moratorium without the existence of dedicated, long-term funding for rental and unemployment assistance.” Not only does an eviction moratorium not address renters’ real financial needs, they said, but also a protracted eviction moratorium does nothing to address the financial pressures and obligations of rental property owners.  “Without mortgage forbearance protections and protections from other property-level financial obligations such as property taxes, insurance payments, and utility service, the stability of the entire rental housing sector is thrown into question.” The NMHC added that it is best left to state and local officials who better know their housing markets and can tailor protections to the varied and unique eviction laws and judicial processes across jurisdictions. To that last point, the CDC stated that the eviction ban will “allow State and local authorities to more easily implement stay-at-home and social distancing directives to mitigate the community spread of COVID-19.” National Housing Conference President and CEO David M. Dworkin said the order “does a good job of explaining in great detail why we must address this growing crisis.”  “Unfortunately, it does nothing to solve it,” he added. “It merely kicks the problem down the road to January, when the weather will be colder and more people will be experiencing even greater crisis.”  The federal halt on evictions will be in place until December 31.

The direction was passed by the bench of Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar while hearing the suo moto PIL titled “In-Re Inhuman Condition At Quarantine Centres And For Providing Better Treatment To Corona Positive”. The Additional Advocate General Manish Goyal, appearing for the State submitted that India being a welfare nation, with limited resources, is not in a position to go in for random Covid-19 testing. He further submitted that there is a protocol for actually allowing a person to get tested. However, the court said it was keen on knowing the feasibility of the proposal. “The anxiety of the Court is to know as to how, now almost after two and a half months of the first lockdown, the State is proposing to go in for random testing,” it remarked. The bench also asked the Government about the actual cost of testing, per individual. “The Court upon seeing that the Covid-19 infection is increasing everyday in the State of U.P., is keen to know whether random testing is possible and what is the actual cost of Covid-19 testing for one particular individual,” the order states. Vide order dated May 26, 2020, the Telangana High Court had also directed the State to carry out random testing, and community testing. Similarly, as per the order issued by the Additional Chief Secretary (H&FW) of the Karnatak government, the state will now begin random testing on people including slum-dwellers, vendors/bill collectors in malls, supermarkets, markets and footpaths, and delivery boys of food chains and couriers.
