Villalba de los Barros is a small town in the south of Extremadura, in a region called Tierra de Barros; an enormous extension of vines along a gently rolling landscape that stands out for the intense red colour of clay of the soil that gives it its name. The tower of the old castle of Villalba stands on the plains, as a fortified construction of the frontier times in the Reconquista, dominating the small village of small whitewashed houses. One of these houses, perhaps the most unique, located by the main square and built in the eighteenth century, is the starting point for our project.Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© José HeviaIt is a rural inn that adapts with meticulous respect to the original architecture, putting in value and enhancing all the original strengths lost over time, but also adapting and incorporating the new use and its requirements from a contemporary perspective. The house, with two floors, has a typical configuration, with three load-bearing bays and an Extremaduran vault on the ground floor. It opens onto the entrance square on one side and onto a small courtyard on the other. The whole social area has been included on this floor: hall, living room, kitchen, dining room and courtyard.Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Save this picture!© José HeviaThe original spaces were recovered, but new openings to the courtyard and between rooms were also included to open up perspectives and to get more light. From a material point of view, raw lime mortar has been used on all the walls and lime paint on the vaults. The original clay pavement had been completely lost, but we went to potters in the area who made us new pieces by hand with a similar texture as the old pavement. Only the diagonal and irregular arrangement of the drawings, as a mirroring reference to the ceilings, allows to differentiate and date this flooring as contemporary.Save this picture!© José HeviaThese manual bricks are also extended on the outside courtyard to the edge of the small pool that has been built to cool the hot summer days. The carpentry work also stands out, both for the careful restoration of the richly decorated original elements and for the work on the new doors, windows and fittings. The set of bedrooms has been taken to the upper floor, an old attic, which was used as a storage and a space to cure meat. This level has been restructured almost completely, but in terms of scale, finishes and furnishings, the atmosphere and unique character of the house have been preserved.Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Section and ElevationSave this picture!© José HeviaThe rural house has 3/4 bedrooms and three bathrooms, a hallway, a living room, a kitchen, a dining room, a courtyard and a storage room. It is equipped with modern facilities to ensure comfort. Special care has been taken both in the use of materials and air conditioning systems, in their sustainability, in line with the logic that the vernacular architecture itself represents. Our goal and the greatest achievement of this project has been to merge our intervention with the preexisting architecture in a process of uncovering and revealing, where our handprint almost disappears so that each element finds its natural order. Its true expression. Save this picture!© José HeviaSave this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessVilla Mosca Bianca House / Design Haus LibertySelected ProjectsStudio INI’s Urban Imprint Exhibition Debuts at A/D/O for NYCx DesignArchitecture News Share CopyHouses, Renovation•Villalba de los Barros, Spainlast_img read more

Antiwar Autumn talks explain need to oppose warmakers of all parties

first_imgSolidarity Center in NYC hosts meeting to ‘End the Wars at Home and Abroad’ on Oct. 31.New York City — “End the Wars at Home and Abroad” was held Oct. 31 as part of the Antiwar Autumn event series that demands those who run for office provide their position on war, militarism and imperialism. The series seeks to hold U.S. electoral candidates accountable for the imperialist wars raging around the world and  domestically. The panel discussion at the Solidarity Center here drew a standing-room-only crowd.The continuous U.S. wars abroad are inextricably linked to the militarization of U.S. borders and the repression of oppressed U.S. communities.“What is going to put a break on war abroad?” asked Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) National Organizer Ajamu Baraka. “It is the people here.”“The imperialism we see globally is the flip side of the repression we deal with domestically,” Baraka said. Democrats overwhelmingly supported the 1033 Program that transfers military-grade weapons and tanks to state and local police departments.“The Democrats and the Republicans are both equally pro-war,” said Lisa Davis of the People’s Organization for Progress and the Black Is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIB). Davis criticized elected elites in Congress for supporting Trump’s $717 billion military budget. These same elected officials approved the Blue Lives Matter bill that makes it a federal crime to assault a police officer.Davis insisted that the anti-war movement support a military draft as a tool to raise awareness and end the wars.Bernadette Ellorin of BAYAN spoke about how the Philippines had been exploited by first Spain and, since 1898, by the United States. Ellorin explained that the Mutual Defense Treaty allows the U.S. military to rotate its presence among 20 ports in the Philippines. It is the fifth most mineral-rich country, a food basket for the Asia-Pacific region, and the United States has exploited its position among Japan, China and southeast Asia.“You will never understand anti-imperialism in the Philippines without understanding the land question,” Ellorin said.Attendees applauded both the cohesiveness of the talks as well as the diversity of the speakers. Davis said she was happy to see unfamiliar and young faces in the audience. “It is so important to take what is going on personally, to take it literally, and to walk like the world depends on you,” Davis said.Other speakers included Maurice Carney of Friends of the Congo and Joe Lombardo of the United National Antiwar Coalition. Richard Kossally of the Peoples Power Assembly chaired the meeting.The event was sponsored by the PPA, BAP, BIB and UNAC.Attendees were encouraged to pick up a copy of BAP’s 4-page booklet on U.S Africa Command (AFRICOM) and read and sign a petition to shut it down. The online petition, as well as printable petition sheets to circulate in your communities, can be found at blackallianceforpeace.com/USoutofAfrica.The video of the meeting can be viewed at tinyurl.com/y9jgjvbz.Varughese is a communications advisor to BAP.

first_img CHICAGO & SAN FRANCISCO & PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Please replace the release with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions. The updated release reads: CCC INFORMATION SERVICES INC. AND DRAGONEER GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES CORP. ANNOUNCE BUSINESS COMBINATION, CREATING PUBLICLY LISTED LEADER ACCELERATING THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE P&C INSURANCE ECONOMY Transaction includes $150 million of fully committed common stock PIPE with participation by Fidelity Investments, funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc. and other investors, in addition to $175 million forward purchase agreement from Dragoneer funds and Michael Bloomberg’s family office, Willett Advisors $968 million of expected net proceeds from transaction will be used to invest in CCC’s growth initiatives and for general corporate purposes Advent International will remain the majority shareholder and be closely aligned with Dragoneer and public shareholders at transaction close Company expected to be listed on the NYSE upon completion of the combination in the second quarter of 2021 Investor webcast to discuss proposed transaction today, Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at 10:00AM EST CCC Information Services Inc. (“CCC”), a leading SaaS platform for the property and casualty (“P&C”) insurance economy, and Dragoneer Growth Opportunities Corp. (NYSE: DGNR) (“Dragoneer”), a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”) formed by an affiliate of Dragoneer Investment Group, today announced a definitive merger agreement has been entered into between Dragoneer and CCC’s parent holding company. Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company is expected to be renamed CCC Intelligent Solutions Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) and is expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. CCC’s mission-critical SaaS platform provides advanced AI, IoT, customer experience, and network management workflow solutions to the P&C insurance economy. CCC enables more than $100 billion of transactions annually among a vast ecosystem of interconnected businesses. CCC’s network includes thousands of customers including insurers, repair facilities, automotive manufacturers, parts suppliers, and other industry participants who leverage CCC’s platform to digitize operations, improve business performance, and power better decisions in an increasingly complex and rapidly changing market. Under Chairman and CEO Githesh Ramamurthy, who will continue to lead the Company following the close of the transaction, CCC expects to report approximately $600 million of revenue in 2020 and has delivered a consistent track record of profitable revenue growth for 20+ years by focusing on delivering best-in-class innovations for its customers. “Today is an exciting day for CCC as our return to the public markets provides us with additional sources of capital to accelerate innovation and increase the value we provide customers,” said Ramamurthy. “Throughout our history, CCC has developed pioneering technology solutions focused on enabling growth, increasing efficiency, and empowering new possibilities for all participants in the P&C insurance economy. We serve a large and interconnected market that is still in the early stages of digitizing its operations and is growing in complexity. We believe CCC is well positioned to support customer digitization in this dynamic market.” Ramamurthy continued, “We are incredibly excited to begin this new partnership with Dragoneer, one of the most highly respected investors in the world, and to continue our relationship with Advent, who have been terrific partners for the past four years. Together, I am confident CCC will continue to generate meaningful value for our customers and shareholders.” “Under Advent’s ownership, CCC has cemented itself as a leading SaaS platform for the P&C insurance ecosystem,” said Eric Wei, Managing Director at Advent. “Since 2017, we’ve partnered with Githesh and the CCC management team to accelerate organic growth through a focus on innovation, and we believe this sustained investment in R&D will deliver significant ROI for customers for decades to come. Advent is excited to partner with Dragoneer, with its preeminent technology investing franchise, to support CCC’s continued focus on digitally transforming the insurance economy. We have strong conviction in CCC’s growth potential and are not selling a single share as part of the transaction.” “CCC is one of those rare software companies that serves as the backbone of a critical industry – the P&C insurance economy,” said Marc Stad, Founder and Portfolio Manager at Dragoneer. “As the products we use and the cars we drive become more and more sophisticated, insurers, consumers, manufacturers and service providers require increasing amounts of support and coordination whenever issues occur. CCC’s advanced technology platform enables the right groups to connect quickly and efficiently, and its twenty-plus years of profitable growth are a testament to the value the company provides to its customers. The CCC team’s impressive track record of execution and financial performance speaks for itself, and we are thrilled to partner with them and Advent as they work to realize their ambitious vision for the business.” Transaction Overview The Company is expected to receive net proceeds of approximately $968 million at the closing of the transaction (assuming no redemptions are effected) and will continue to operate under the CCC management team. All cash proceeds from the transaction will be put towards the Company’s balance sheet, with no existing CCC shareholders selling any shares in connection with the business combination. The boards of directors of both Dragoneer and CCC have approved the proposed transaction. Completion of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2021, is subject to approval of Dragoneer’s shareholders and the satisfaction or waiver of certain other customary closing conditions. In addition to the approximately $690 million held in Dragoneer’s trust account (assuming no redemptions are effected) and the $175 million forward purchase agreement commitment from Dragoneer funds and Michael Bloomberg’s family office, a group of investors has committed to participate in the transaction through a common stock private investment in public equity (“PIPE”) of approximately $150 million at $10 per share. The PIPE includes participation from Fidelity Investments and funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc., along with Altimeter Capital Management L.P., Coatue, D1 Capital Partners L.P., Franklin Templeton, Janus Henderson Investors, Maverick Capital, MFS Investment Management, Sunley House Capital (an affiliate of Advent International) and other investors. Proceeds of the business combination and PIPE will be used for general corporate purposes and to fuel additional innovation and growth . Current CCC shareholders and holders of equity awards are converting 100% of their equity interests into shares or equivalent awards of the Company at a total enterprise value for the Company of approximately $7 billion, reflecting a deep alignment of interests. Current shareholders of Dragoneer are converting their ordinary shares and warrants of Dragoneer into common stock and warrants of the Company on a one for one basis. Additionally, the current CCC shareholders and Dragoneer’s sponsor each have an earnout tied to the trading price of the Company shares after the closing of the business combination, providing a significant incentive for post-closing value creation. Assuming no redemptions are effected, the current shareholders of CCC are expected to own approximately 83.2% of the Company after closing, with Advent remaining the largest shareholder in the Company. Advisors Citigroup Global Markets Inc. is acting as lead capital markets advisor to Dragoneer, in conjunction with capital markets advisors Goldman Sachs & Co., LLC and JP Morgan Securities LLC. Ropes & Gray LLP is acting as legal counsel to Dragoneer. Evercore Group L.L.C. is acting as financial advisor and capital markets advisor to CCC. Kirkland & Ellis LLP is acting as legal counsel to CCC and Advent. Citigroup Global Markets Inc. is acting as lead placement agent and Evercore Group L.L.C. as placement agent on the PIPE.

Nearly One-Quarter of Mortgage Loans Fail Tests for TILA-RESPA Compliance

first_img September 3, 2015 1,208 Views Compliance defects on closed mortgage loans are already a costly problem for lenders, but with the new TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rules just one month away, lenders can expect to face even more risks and costs.Recent analysis from ComplianceEase, a provider of automated compliance solutions to the financial services industry, found that 17 percent of loans currently fail for Truth in Lending Act (TILA) reasons and another 6 percent of the loans failed for being outside of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) tolerances.In addition, the analysis determined that compliance defects on closed loans is causing the cost of origination to rise, approximately $28 for every loan to fix these errors. This is prior to the TRID rule taking effect October 3, 2015.“Based on our analysis, closing defects are already an expensive problem for lenders under the current rules, and are about to get riskier and more expensive under TRID,” said John Vong, president of ComplianceEase. “Lenders and settlement service providers will need to work together so they can produce higher quality loans and not add to the already high costs of origination.”The ComplianceEase data, taken from a cross-section of 700,000 audits that were performed in ComplianceAnalyzer and RESPA Auditor during the first quarter of 2015, also estimated that the average RESPA reimbursement was $328 for the 6 percent of loans that failed the RESPA tolerance test. For the 2 percent of loans that had an uncured RESPA violation the average reimbursement was $740.”Based on our analysis, closing defects are already an expensive problem for lenders under the current rules, and are about to get riskier and more expensive under TRID.”In addition to this reimbursement, the new TRID rule also has a three-tiered civil money penalty that can range from $5,000 per day to $1 million per day for “knowing violations.”The analysis also showed that one year after the enactment of the Qualified Mortgage (QM) rule, 4.5 percent of QM loans failed Safe Harbor tests and 11 percent of loans were mis-categorized as to their QM status.
