In this village, ‘Treefull Hills’, each house unit has two level of boundaries: public boundary at the street level and individual boundary at the living level.Save this picture!© Pace Studio – Suman ChunThe ‘A House’ celebrates interaction between families and neighbors while maintaining a strong sense of privacy and of ownership. Therefore the ‘A House’ is a place where degree of privacy is maintained with openings and spaces are merged in continuous spaces redefined by ‘A-shaped’ natural light which starts from one light at the top then spread out as it goes through two bottom openings under the ‘A-shaped’ roof also.Save this picture!Drawing SetThe adjacency of the houses surrounding boundary and facing south lead to development of opening and massing that communicates maximum size and location of openings in the consideration of the light exposure and privacy from the public. The simple volume and a gable roof came from the strict application of local urban regulations and result reflected the client request: 1. Complying with prevailing site regulations; project should have sloping roof at least 70% of the floor area. Therefore, client want to have a typical ‘gable’ roof shape rather than having a portion of angled roof. 2. Client desire that all rooms able to meet the maximized light exposure orient to South. 3. While project has three separate floors, client asked to keep the connectivity between family members in terms of visual, sound and light.Save this picture!© Pace Studio – Suman ChunThe main space in ‘A House’ is an triple height openings which connecting the diverse spaces by light and sensual connection.

Several local officials and politicians attended the events.“The Vietnamese authorities are violating their own laws by holding Nguyen Tien Trung incommunicado just because he criticised the regime,” Julliard said. “The government needs to heed the calls coming from France for the release of this young pro-democracy blogger.”Julliard added: “Demonstrations of support for Trung must be continued and intensified, because Vietnam’s politicians are sensitive about their country’s image. The run-up to the next plenary session of the Communist Party central committee could be decisive for the possibility of getting Trung released.”Trung’s brother, who attended today’s demonstration, said a lawyer was able to visit Trung but was not allowed to talk to him.Trung was arrested at his parents’ home in Ho Chi Minh City on 7 July for allegedly violating article 88 of the criminal code. A government TV station has broadcast footage in which he makes a confession. He seems to have been arrested because of what he posted online, above all a letter to the government about education policies, and because of his involvement in the Vietnam Democracy Party. In 2007, he created the Association of Young Vietnamese for Democracy.The European Union has publicly called for his release.

A decade ago, there were only a few hundred such jobs in the industry.Including green passenger car makers like Tesla and Karma Automotive, the total of jobs would reach over 20,000, the report said.A Calstart tally shows more than 50 companies in California are now involved in manufacturing electric commercial vehicles and parts or providing support for those manufacturers.In 2017, only 20 California manufacturers were building zero- and low-emission trucks and buses, according to the California Air Resources Board.Chinese electric bus and truck manufacturer BYD now employs more than 800 at its U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles and its electric bus and truck facility in Lancaster, Calif. That’s up from a few dozen in 2014.Proterra, a large electric bus company, moved its headquarters to Burlingame, Calif., from North Carolina in 2015. It now employs more than 250 at a new bus plant in Industry Calf., and at a new research office and electric vehicle battery pack manufacturing plant in Burlingame, according to the report.Other companies hiring in the sector include: Thor Trucks, a startup that develops batteries and all-electric chassis for Class 8 trucks; and Lion Electric, a Canadian electric school bus manufacturer that opened a plant in Sacramento last year.The report said more new technology and manufacturing businesses are moving to California because of new rules mandating more zero-emission trucks and buses.Bill Van Amburg, executive vice president of Calstart, said many of the new jobs in the electric truck and bus industry are well-paying blue- and white-collar posts – mostly engineering, software and design professionals, and manufacturing, electrical installation, sales, and repair and maintenance workers.“One surprise is that we’re seeing this bring back manufacturing jobs, which had been going out of state,” Van Amburg told Trucks.com. “They are coming here because this is an early launch state for electric buses and trucks.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

First-time homebuyers are still crushing the mortgage market when compared with repeat buyers, according to a recent report by the Urban Institute (UI). Despite facing inflated prices, stunted supply, tight credit, and rental costs that make saving for a down payment difficult, first-timers have commanded the mortgage market for the past 10 years, the report revealed and The Urban Institute doesn’t see that changing anytime soon.Giving a brief background, the report indicated that theFederal Housing Administration (FHA), which makes low down payment loans available to borrowers with subpar credit, has typically targeted the first-time buyer market, who make up around 80 percent of the FHA’s total originations. That percentage plunged to about 75 percent during the recession but has tiptoed back up to nearly 83 percent today, UI reports.By contrast, the GSEs’ share of first-time homebuyers historically tracked much lower than the FHA’s, totaling about 25 percent during the early 2000s. During the housing bubble, it jumped to around 40 percent. After receding slightly during the recession, the GSEs’ share of first-timers has maintained an upward trajectory since 2013. It sits at nearly 50 percent today, the report notes.When combining the FHA and GSEs, the total share of first-time homebuyers taking out purchase mortgages in 2017 amounted to 60 percent—around 20 percentage points higher than the 40 percent pre-crisis average.Why the flood of first-timers post-crisis? The reason is two-fold, according to UI: “Partly, it’s the better economy. But a big chunk of the increase is driven by the pullback of repeat buyers.”The report found that between 2001 and 2007, repeat homebuyers represented anywhere from 1.4 to 1.8 million home purchases per year, while first-timers accounted for between 900,000 and 1.3 million. The two cohorts have since switched. Last year, repeat buyers purchased just over a million homes, while first-time buyers snapped up to close 1.5 million.“Falling house prices during the recession prevented millions of homeowners from accumulating equity in their homes, equity they have typically used to trade up to bigger homes,” UI reported.Since prices have picked up and home equity is rising again, will repeat buying activity reclaim its historic levels? “Probably not,” the report said.Owners may have more equity today, but most of them also have very low mortgages they locked in during the recession—when rates routinely measured below 4 percent. If, for example, a homeowner with a 3.5 percent rate wanted to upgrade to a different home, they’d have to secure a new mortgage at today’s higher rate.“Many homebuyers will likely find it much more economical to simply stay in their existing homes,” the report said. “This will continue to dampen repeat buying volumes and continue the dominance of first-time homebuyers in the housing market.”But those first-timers will, quite literally, be paying for that preeminent status, it notes.“Since existing homeowners won’t release their starter homes into the market, and since we aren’t making up for that deficit through new construction, prices will likely keep going up for first-time homebuyers,” it reported.

A mere mention about the question having been formulated in the memorandum of appeal is not enough. That is not in accord with the settled law. It is possible that more than one question of law had been formulated in the appeal memo, as substantial question of law. The Court ought to advert to the question which it thinks appropriate to examine and then answer the same, as is mandated in terms of the settled legal position.”In this regard, the court referred to its earlier judgment in Bokka Subba Rao Vs. Kukkala Balakrishna (2008) 3 SCC 99. “It is now well settled by catena of decisions of this Court that the High Court in second appeal, before allowing the same, ought to have formulated the substantial questions of law and thereafter, to decide the same on consideration of such substantial questions of law.”, it was observed in the said judgment.Setting aside the High Court order, the bench relegated the parties before the High Court for reconsideration of the Second Appeal on its own merits.More recently in Sreedevi vs. Sarojam, the Supreme Court had observed that it is obligatory for a High Court to frame substantial question of law in second appeal even if lower courts’ findings are perverse per se. That was also a case which arose from a Kerala High Court order.However, in a judgment delivered last year [Illoth Valappil Ambunhi (D) vs. Kunhambu Karanavan], the Court observed that mere error in framing a question of law would not render a judgment in Second Appeal liable to be set aside, if it is found that a substantial question of law existed and such question has in fact been answered by the High Court.
