The “Courbes” project is part of the urban renewal program of the ZAC Charles de Gaulle in Colombes. The area is easily identified thanks to the eclectic architecture of the urban fabric, blending bungalows and apartment houses dating from the 1980s-90s. The tramway has finally reached this neighborhood, which has enabled the beginning of its genuine transformation owing to its highly prized proximity to the business district of La Défense.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe architectural project comprises two buildings with large and double-height shops on the ground floor, it restores the notion of alignment to the boulevard while bestowing visual lightness in its upper floors thanks to the suppleness of its interlocking volumes. The important variations in the project’s height envelope and floor plan results from the presence of setbacks on every floor, which make it possible to offer rich volumes according to the surrounding context. The core of the city block benefits from the creation of a pedestrian alleyway lined with over 30 parasol pines, and the residential building is cladded in shiny annealed stainless steel, which amplifies the perception of the greenery and light within the block. The project with its 134 apartments serves to signal the entrance to the town while the molded volumes give each apartment a unique character. The aim was to densify the area, respecting the comfort of all at the same time. Each floor has been designed in accordance to its specific location, whilst complying the orientation, the neighboring structures and the volumes of the floors above and below. The massive appearance of the building is mitigated by the presence of balconies – between reflection and transparency- offering open sky exterior spaces. Over 2 km of curved glazing were required to complete the project.Save this picture!© Takuji ShimmuraThe exterior spaces are on average 22 m² per apartment. Though situated in the second ring of Paris suburbs, it benefits form quality interior spaces, illustrated in particular by the choice of solid oak parquet floors for all the rooms in the building as well as the common areas. The southern edge of the property is treated like a ship’s prow overlooking the outside.

Primary election results signal changes for the Democratic Party

About 10,000 more ballots were cast during early voting for Democratic candidates compared to early voting in 2014. Total early voter turnout for Democratic and Republican candidates rose from 64,267 in 2014 to 80,345 in 2018.Voter turnout for the Democratic party was the highest it’s been in years, as 1,037,799 Democratic voters cast a ballot for the U.S. Senate Seat alone. During the 2014 primary, Democrats only had a turnout of 560,033 voters in total, according to information from the Secretary of State’s office.Data from Texas Secretary of State.Tarrant County voters at Tanglewood Elementary shared their thoughts about the importance of voting in local, as well as presidential, elections.Tuesday’s primaries determined the candidate each party will be putting on the ballot for the midterms this year.A runoff election in May will determine the candidates who do not receive at least 51 percent of votes in the primary election.

(And if this is just the opening, well we’re sure excited to see how this campaign shapes up.)Now Midterm elections aren’t until November, where the U.S. House and one-third of the U.S. Senate will go up for election, but Democrats are likely happy to see the rise in their parties turnout for this primary as an indicator of what’s to come across the country.

Takeaways from Congress’ first hearing on Capitol riot

first_imgLocal NewsUS News Pinterest Pinterest WASHINGTON (AP) — Security officials testifying at Congress’ first hearing on the deadly siege of the Capitol cast blame and pointed fingers on Tuesday but also acknowledged they were woefully unprepared for the violence. Senators drilled down on the stunning security failure and missed warning signs as rioters loyal to former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, in a misguided attempt to stop lawmakers from certifying President Joe Biden’s election. Five people died in the attack, including a Capitol Police officer. The security officials lost their jobs, and Trump was impeached by the House on a charge of inciting the insurrection, the deadliest attack on Congress in 200 years. Trump was ultimately acquitted by the Senate. Here are some takeaways from the testimony: FAILURE TO COMMUNICATE Intelligence warnings of an armed uprising by extremist groups heading to the Capitol didn’t rise to the level of alarm — or even get passed up the chain of command — in time for the Jan. 6 attack. Crucially, a key warning flare from the FBI field office in Norfolk, Virginia, of a “war” on the Capitol was sent the night before to the Capitol Police’s intelligence division. But then-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund testified that he only learned about it the day before Tuesday’s hearing. Instead, Sund said he was bracing for demonstrations on par with other armed protests by mobs of Trump’s supporters in the nation’s capital in November and December after the presidential election. “No entity, including the FBI, provided any intelligence indicating that there would be a coordinated violent attack on the United States Capitol by thousands of well-equipped armed insurrectionists,” he testified in written remarks about a conference call the day before the attack. The Democratic chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Sen. Gary Peters of Michigan, said, “There was a failure to take this threat more seriously.” HE SAID, HE SAID As hundreds of rioters stormed the Capitol, breaking into the iconic building’s windows and doors, sometimes in hand-to-hand combat with police, there are conflicting accounts from the security officials over what happened next. Sund, who had raised the idea of calling on the National Guard for backup days earlier, specifically recounted a 1:09 p.m. phone call he made to the then-sergeant-at-arms of the House, Paul Irving, his superior, requesting National Guard troops. Sund said he was told they would run it up the chain of command . Irving said he has no recollection of the conversation at that time and instead recalls a conversation nearly 20 minutes later. He said the 1:09 p.m. call does not show up on his cellphone log. As the riot escalated, Sund was “pleading” with Army officials for Guard troops in another phone call, testified Robert Contee III, the acting chief of the Washington, D.C., Metropolitan Police Department, whose officers had arrived for backup. Contee said he was “stunned” at the delayed response from the military. Defense Department officials have said they offered National Guard troops days earlier but were rebuffed. Pentagon officials are scheduled to testify to the Senate next week. COMMON FACTS: ‘A PLANNED INSURRECTION’ At the start of the hearing, coming 10 days after Trump was acquitted by the Senate on the impeachment charge of inciting the insurrection, some common facts were agreed to. Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, the chair of the Rules Committee, asked the security officials if there was any doubt the riot was a planned attack and carried out by white nationalist and extremist groups. None of the witnesses disputed the characterization of the facts of Jan. 6. Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin read an alternative account, of mostly peaceful protesters festive that day, that he encouraged colleagues to consider. But in closing, Klobuchar restated the testimony: “There was clear agreement this was a planned insurrection.” ONE OFFICER’S PERSONAL STORY The hearing opened with Capitol Police Capt. Carneysha Mendoza, a 19-year veteran of the force, delivering a compelling personal account of being called at home that day as she was spending time with her 10-year-old before the start of her shift. She rushed to the Capitol only to find “the worst of the worst” scene of her career. A former Army veteran, she recounted the deadly mayhem, fending off rioters inside the building’s stately Rotunda, inhaling gas and suffering chemical burns to her face she said still have not healed. Her Fitbit recorded four hours of sustained activity, she said. The next night and following day she spent at the hospital consoling the family of Officer Brian Sicknick, who died after the attack. “As an American, and as an Army veteran, it’s sad to see us attacked by our fellow citizens,” Mendoza told the senators. TRUMP’S SHADOW The former president was hardly a presence at the first hearing. Instead, senators largely set aside their sharply partisan ways to drill down on the facts of what happened that day — on how to prevent it from happening again. Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Calif., pointedly asked for the name of the commander in chief of the armed forces that day who was ultimately responsible for the military and security of the country. That drew out the former president’s name. Among the senators on the panels are two of Trump’s staunch allies who led the effort to overturn Biden’s election victory — Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. ——— Associated Press writers Mary Clare Jalonick, Michael Balsamo and Lolita Baldor in Washington and Nomaan Merchant in Houston contributed to this report.

The homeownership success of this group will largely depend on the location. Midwest and South are considered regions with more affordable options, it indicated. The analysis titled “The Home of Home Search” shows that nearly 80 percent of Generation Z wants to own a home before age 30. However, to make their dream of homeownership a reality, they will have to save $304 every month for the next 12 years to buy with a 10 percent down payment plus closing costs on a median-priced home. Currently, the median price of a home in the U.S. is projected to cost $386,310 in 2031, when today’s 18-year-old members of Generation Z turn 30, the analysis pointed out. Realtor.com’s projections based on a 13-year forecast for median home prices in top 100 metros and different down payment savings plans reveal that Generation Z will need to save $1,962 per month will need to save $1,962 per month. The next most expensive locale is San Francisco at $1,439 followed by Los Angeles at $979, and  Honolulu at $946, and California at $877 per month in terms of savings. According to realtor.com’s analysis of Optimal Blue mortgage data, the typical under-30 home buyer used a seven percent down payment to successfully complete their home purchase in 2018. Starting on their 18th birthday, to afford a 10 percent down payment and typical closing costs in the top 10 most expensive metros by the time they turn 30 years old, members of Generation Z will need to save an average of $948 a month. The median-priced home in 2019 is expected to cost $265,000, but over the course of the next 12 years, the price is expected to increase by nearly 50 percent, according to Realtor.com. Youngstown, Ohio, topped the list of the most affordable metros, where Generation Z would only have to save $108 per month, followed by McAllen, Texas; Toledo, Ohio; Wichita, Kansas; and Little Rock, Arkansas. “Choosing to live in one of the U.S.’s larger and more expensive metros, especially on the West Coast, is going to make homeownership a difficult task, but that doesn’t mean that Gen Z should give up on their dreams.The most important thing they can do is start saving as much as possible early on and let compound interest do the heavy lifting for them,”  said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com.
