The solid ‘base’ with recessed openings anchors the house to the site with external walls extending out from the house to form landscaped retaining walls and steps which are located at natural ground level or below.  Save this picture!Courtesy of CABEThe open planned living areas sit on top of the solid base as a recessed transparent ‘middle’ element to capture views and sunlight. Furthermore, due to the orientation of the site and the need to maximise solar access, the roof over the living room folds up to capture northern sunlight with significant eave overhangs to provide shading from the summer sun. The southern extent of the mid level of the house, including awnings and balustrades, is setback within the rear covenant setback zone.Save this picture!Courtesy of CABEThe ‘top’ of the house, which includes the bedrooms and service areas, folds and curves with consideration to boundary alignments, view corridors and internal functions of the house. To take advantage of the southern views large format picture windows are provided to the bedrooms and library area whilst secondary windows and hatches are provided to the east and west facades to maintain privacy to adjoining houses.Save this picture!Concept SketchProject gallerySee allShow lessTurkish Court Rules in Favor of Gezi Park ProtestersArchitecture NewsArchitecture Film Festival Rotterdam 2013Event Share Australia Architects: Turner Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/396804/the-serpentine-turner Clipboard “COPY” Projects ArchDailycenter_img 2011 Houses Save this picture!Courtesy of CABE+ 11 Share CopyHouses•Sydney, Australia Photographs The Serpentine / Turner ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/396804/the-serpentine-turner Clipboard “COPY” CopyAbout this officeTurnerOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSydneyHousesAustraliaPublished on July 04, 2013Cite: “The Serpentine / Turner” 04 Jul 2013.

Rogare report identifies barriers to implementing relationship fundraising

first_img Melanie May | 2 August 2017 | News Tagged with: relationship fundraising Rogare Lack of support from senior staff and lack of evidence are key barriers to implementing relationship fundraising, according to a new report from Rogare.The Breaking Down Barriers report looks at the barriers to implementing relationship fundraising as identified by members of the fundraising thinktank’s International Advisory Panel at events in London and Colorado Springs. As well as identifying barriers, the report asks what can be done generally to break down these barriers, and what Rogare’s International Advisory Panel can do to help break down these barriers.International Advisory Panel members identified cultural issues as a major barrier, with senior staff failing to buy into and support long-term relationship fundraising. They also felt there was a lack of theory and evidence to back up relationship fundraising’s claims. Two issues were also seen to be underlying this however: whether fundraising is seen as a profession, and whether ‘cultures of philanthropy’ exist at organisations.The report says:“Many of the barriers may stem not just from a lack of status that comes with not being seen as a professional, but also because of fundraisers’ own lack of professional self-confidence (e.g. lack of theoretical knowledge, leading to lack of respect from board, leading to high staff turnover).“And many organisations lack the culture of philanthropy that would lead them to strategically prioritise fundraising, while fundraising’s lack of professional respect inhibits the development of such a culture.”Curt Swindoll, executive vice-president of American fundraising agency Pursuant, a Rogare Associate Member that also hosted and facilitated the Colorado Springs event said: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 “Few subjects are more important. If we hope to be exceptional at relationship fundraising, we must be adept at connecting with and engaging people, and we have to be skilled at raising money. But as this report points out, the pitfalls to achieving success are significant, but never more vital to our future financial health.”Recommendations for Rogare, which may be carried out by task groups of the International Advisory Panel, included in the report are:Develop a set of metrics that can be used to measure the success of relationship fundraisingEstablish an award for best use of relationship fundraisingExplore the current paradigms in the commercial world about customer experience and other concepts and suggest future directions for relationship fundraisingPublish case studies of great relationship fundraising on the Rogare website or a special website specially set up for the purposeBe advocates for relationship fundraisingThe new report is the first step in the extension of the Relationship fundraising: Where do we go from here? review. The first stages of this project were the volumes exploring the theories from marketing and social psychology that underpin relationship fundraising, which were jointly sponsored by US companies Pursuant and Bloomerang, and published at the start of 2016.  103 total views,  3 views todaycenter_img Rogare report identifies barriers to implementing relationship fundraising  104 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 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.

Diving Into New Mortgage Data

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Diving Into New Mortgage Data  Print This Post Nicole Casperson is the Associate Editor of DS News and MReport. She graduated from Texas Tech University where she received her M.A. in Mass Communications and her B.A. in Journalism. Casperson previously worked as a graduate teaching instructor at Texas Tech’s College of Media and Communications. Her thesis will be published by the International Communication Association this fall. To contact Casperson, e-mail: [email protected] On Monday, the Data & Analytics division of Black Knight, Inc. released its latest Mortgage Monitor Report for November 2017.According to the data, as of the end of Q3 2017, 42 million homeowners with a mortgage now have an aggregate of nearly $5.4 trillion in equity available to borrow against.Ben Graboske, EVP of Data & Analytics at Black Knight, said that this represents an all-time high, and up more than $3 trillion since the bottom of the market in 2012—as over 80 percent of all mortgage holders now have available equity to tap via first-lien cash-out refinances or home equity lines of credit (HELOCs).“We’ve noted in the past that as interest rates rise from historic lows, HELOCs represented an increasingly attractive option for these homeowners to access their available equity without relinquishing interest rates below today’s prevailing rate on their first-lien mortgages,” Graboske explained. “However, with the recently passed tax reform package, interest on these lines of credit will no longer be deductible, which increases the post-tax expense of HELOCs for those who itemize.”There are many factors to consider before a borrower determines which method of equity extraction is the most economical, but Graboske noted that in many cases for those with high unpaid principal balances (UPB) who are taking out lower line amounts, the math still favors HELOCs.“However—assuming interest on cash-out refinances remains deductible—for low-to-moderate UPB borrowers taking out larger amounts of equity, the post-tax math for those who will still itemize under the increased standard deduction may now favor cash-out refinances instead, even if the result is a slight increase to first-lien interest rates,” said Graboske.The report also takes an in-depth look at how the increase in equity, driven by rising home prices, has also continued to decrease the population of underwater borrowers.Black Knight’s analysis notes that the number of underwater borrowers declined by 800,000 over the first nine months of 2017—representing a 37 percent decline in negative equity. Only 2.7 percent of homeowners with a mortgage, which is an estimated 1.36 million borrowers, now owe more than their home is worth, which is the lowest rate since 2006.Additionally, Black Knight’s data found that the national delinquency rate jumped by 2.5 percent from last month, attributing the increase to “typical seasonality.” Meanwhile, November experienced the second-fewest foreclosure starts in 2017 and the third fewest of any month since 2004. In addition, prepayment activity dropped by 12.41 percent month-over-month, falling to 31.47 percent below last year’s level.To view the full report, click here.
