After the success of an energy-efficient residence on Steigereiland, FARO has pushed to a higher level for this second version. Residence 2.0 is energy-neutral and is build according the cradle-to-cradle principles. The CO2-reduction will be 100%. Save this picture!© Hans Peter FöllmiThis CO2 reduction is realized by bringing the house to a passive house level with an insulation value of Rc=10 using triple glazing, 100% liquid-tight joints and heat exchangers. The insulation materials are organic. The integrated photovoltaic cells in the roof line and the wind mill and PV cells generate enough electricity to supply both the nominal electricity demand as well as for the heating of the water. Save this picture!© Hans Peter FöllmiA very large boiler feed water container of 2 m3 provides a large accumulation of energy. The heat exchanger in combination with the high level of insulation and triple glazing provides a great level of comfort. The air supply comes via the outside and will be heated by a Sole ground source heat exchanger two meters under the house. Extra energy for space heating and warm water will be supplied by warm water collectors. These are integrated in the cornice of the façade. The temperature can be increased if needed by use of a pellet stove. Electricity will be provided by a DonQi wind turbine, PV cells and 6 m2 Auron DF heat pipes. Save this picture!© Hans Peter FöllmiThe design of the house is based on an earlier edition of the home. The upper floors are the same, but the unique parts, like a hanging sitting room, has changed. The exterior façade is made of burnt wood. An old Japanese technique that preserves the wood in a natural way. The burnt top layer preserves the wood and eliminates the need for paint or impregnation. This home is designed around a large live in kitchen on the ground floor. Up the stairs is a split level floor with a large balcony and a living room. The living room rests on a horizontal tree. Using this tree features all stadia of wood in the house: tree, timber and ash. The tree was salvaged from one of the canals of Amsterdam, where it had to be removed for restoration of the quay.

first_img Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn of the release of the two journalists who were still being held hostage in the southeastern state of Imo. South African sound engineer Nick Greyling was released on the evening of 8 March, according to Caroline Creasy, a spokesperson for M-Net Supersport, the South African TV station he works for, while Nigerian sports commentator Bowie Attamah was reportedly released on 5 March. They were kidnapped on 1 March.AFP quoted a source “who participated in the negotiations” as saying a ransom of 15 million nairas (100,000 dollars) was paid for Greyling’s release. The Nigerian authorities have denied this. Little information is available about Attamah but, like Greyling, he is said to be safe and in good health.———————————————————————————05.03.2010 – Concern for two journalists kidnapped five days ago in the Niger Delta Reporters Without Borders today expressed deep concern about the plight of two sports journalists working for South African M-Net Supersport television who were kidnapped on 1st March and are still being held hostage.South African producer Nick Greyling and Nigerian sports commentator Bowie Attamah were snatched close to airport in Owerri, capital of the south-eastern state of Imo, while they were heading to Lagos on a bus. A third journalist abducted with them, Nigerian cameraman Alexander Effiong, managed to escape from his kidnappers the following day and is currently safe in Lagos. “While hopes were high that the two journalists would be quickly released, it is worrying that they are still being held hostage. We back the efforts of the Nigerian authorities, particularly acting president, Goodluck Jonathan, and the chief of the Imo state police force in seeking to make contact with the kidnappers so that the hostages will be released as soon as possible,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“Kidnapping is widespread in Nigeria, frequently directed against foreign workers with major oil companies and involving ransom demands. The always cowardly practice of kidnapping is all the more absurd when it is aimed at journalists whose financial means are very limited,” the organisation continued.The day Effiong escaped his captors, on 2 March, managing director of M-Net Supersport in Nigeria, Felix Awogu, said of the hostages, “I am very positive about their imminent release. I am sure that very soon, they will be set free.” But two days later he told Reporters Without Borders, “I regret to tell you that the two journalists are still in the hands of their captors. I remain confident about the outcome of this case, but we will have to be patient.”Nigeria is ranked 135th out of 175 countries in Reporters Without Borders’ 2009 world press freedom index, chiefly because of the high number of arbitrary arrests and high levels of violence to which journalists are subjected. Deputy editor of the daily newspaper The Guardian, Bayo Ohu, was murdered outside his home in the Lagos suburbs on 20 September 2009.Moreover, the State Security Service has for several years been on Reporters Without Borders’ list of press freedom predators.

On a year over year basis, Quicken Loans said that the gap had narrowed considerably. In September 2017, the HPPI had recorded that appraiser values on homes were 1.14 percent lower than what homeowners believed was the correct value. In fact, the study indicated that in September this year, the number of metro areas where appraisals were more likely to be lower than expected has dropped by 40 percent in the last year.“A wide gap between the estimated home value and the appraised value can cause a mortgage to be reworked, or in some cases, scrapped altogether,” said Bill Banfield, EVP of Capital Markets at Quicken Loans. “All the more reason for homeowners to be realistic when their mortgage banker asks them what they think their home is worth when they start the financing process.”However, Quicken Loans’ Home Value Index (HVI), which gauges home value trends based solely on appraisal data from home purchases and mortgage refinances slowed in September on a month-over-month basis. The HVI indicated that the average appraisal value rose 0.35 percent since August, it was less than half of the growth rate recorded at that time.  On an annual basis, the index saw a 5.69 percent jump in September compared with an increase of 5.79 percent in August.Listing the factors that were softening this growth, Banfield said that rapid price increases for more than five years had started to impact affordability as the average wage increases struggled to keep up with the soaring home prices.“While home values are still rising, especially with solid annual jumps, a slowdown in monthly growth is expected to allow the market balance with the more moderate inflation,” Banfield said.
