The project, situated along Bruyn street at Neder-over-Hembeek , envisions the construction of 65 apartments and a day- care with 48 places. The apartments are divided into 5 distinct buildings constituted of systematic modules, where the layout, thanks to a series of direction changes, permits to avoid any repetitions devoid of nuances. The day care is on the frontage of this new urbanistic entity. Its presence contributes to the dynamism and quality of the future neighbourhood.Save this picture!Courtesy of B612The project is situated on the edge of the urban on a clear transition point between the urbanistic stretch, the fringes bordering the roads, and the areas opening into the landscape: the alignement of the buildings defines the roads and the public spaces, but at times it draws back, it opens, then it spreads out to make place for the structural, open and landscaped entities. The site and brief analysis has allowed us to define the guidelines and the project objectives in order to compose a friendly and durable environment that is beneficial for the accommodations and the neighbourhood.Save this picture!Courtesy of B612Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!Courtesy of B612The implantation starts with the day-care which reconstructs urbanistically the currently undefined intersection between the streets Bruyn and Trasserweg. The day-care allows to articulate the North part intended for the new planned accommodation, with the already existing urbanised South part. Then, the urban development along Bruyn street permits to define the aligning without creating a built front thanks to the subtly offset geometry of the buildings. It creates openings and natural continuity that follows the distinctive features of the landscape.Save this picture!PlanSimultaneously with constructing the built environment, the project aims to create open landscaped spaces that would be structuring and beneficial for the city, the project and the landscape.
The garden is the space that is constituted by the buildings and at the same time it is the space constituent of their qualities.Save this picture!Courtesy of B612Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Destruction of Memory: A Documentary on the War Against Cultural HistoryArchitecture NewsKengo Kuma Unveils Aluminum Clad Art Gallery in ChinaArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Rue Bruyn, 1120 Bruxelles, BelgiumLocation to be used only as a reference.

Bloomberg says China is looking at possible ways to speed up its purchases of American farm goods to meet its Phase One Trade Agreement commitments. However, it appears not everyone is happy with the idea.The government is looking at speeding up the process because the coronavirus delayed some imports. Proposals include potentially buying 10 million tons of U.S. soybeans for Chinese state reserves if demand from private buyers isn’t enough. China could also fulfill its annual import quota of corn, which is currently at 7.2 million tons, with grain from America.The Asian nation could also consider buying more than its quota, potentially reaching as high as 20 million tons of U.S. corn imports. China is also looking at buying one million tons of U.S. cotton for government reserves.Bloomberg points out that there is some opposition to the planned buys. Some officials are questioning whether the government should be trying to expedite U.S. purchases given the downturn in the Chinese economy after the coronavirus outbreak.The current round of discussions on the purchases is reported to be at the lower levels of the Chinese government, with no final decision made yet.

Equally so, I note that there are many out there that like it just the way it is and if it’s not broken then there is no need to fix it. You guys can just read on and agree or disagree with anything included, you never know, you might like one or two bits. Anyway, the number one thing is to make sure you enjoy the day, stuff the turkey and yourselves and you can work it off on St Stephen’s Day.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A NICE alternative to start your Christmas fare with and a great way to introduce chestnuts to the table.Chestnut and potato soupWHAT YOU NEED200g diced onions1 kg cubed potatoes200g cubed parsnips400g chestnuts, half coarsely chopped and the remained halved75g butterThyme leaves1.75L chicken stockSalt and pepper2 apples cubed250g creamChives to garnishWHAT TO DOMelt half of the butter in a large pot add the onions and sauté until transparent. Add the potato and parsnip cubes and sauté for about two minutes. Stir in the halved chestnuts and continue to cook for another two minutes.Sprinkle in the thyme and pour in the stock. Bring to a boil on a medium heat and allow to simmer for 30 minutes then finely puree the soup. Adjust the season with salt and pepper.Melt the remaining butter in a separate pot and add the apples and the remaining chopped chestnuts and cook for about three minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add to the soup. Gently bring the soup to a boil.Whisk the cream until frothy and half stiff. Mix into the soup gently. Serve soup in pre-warmed bowls with a dollop of cream and a sprinkling of chopped chestnuts.Christmas is about tradition and we are not going to disturb that for the purists. However, for those of you that fancy changing just one thing, why not try this stuffing for the table. There’s enough here to fill a medium family sized bird.Chestnut stuffingWHAT YOU NEED300g breadcrumbs2 onions, chopped4 ribs of celery, peeled and choppedSmall bunch of fresh sage leaves or 1 tablespoon dried2 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves or 2 teaspoons dried1 sprig of fresh rosemary leaves or 1 teaspoons dried250g unsalted butter300g of chopped chestnutsSmall bunch of chopped fresh parsley leavesWHAT TO DOGently cook the diced onion, celery and carrot, sage, thyme and rosemary in half of the butter until the vegetables are soft and translucent. Add the chestnuts and cook the mixture for a further two minutes.Add the remainder of the butter and then add the breadcrumbs to the vegetable and herb mixture. Stir in the parsley and salt and pepper to taste, and let the stuffing cool completely. The stuffing may be made one day in advance and kept covered and chilled. This recipe is enough to stuff a 12- to 14lb turkey with extra to bake on the side.Chocolates or petit fours are a lovely, if not indulgent, way to finish any meal and as Christmas is about having that little bit extra, you could try to satisfy that desire by making these the day before and not worry about the stress of the kitchen on the big day.Flavoured with a little cherry or raspberry, these truffles are all about the quality of ingredients and using a good quality chocolate is key. The rest is easy.Raspberry ganache for trufflesWhat you need300g best quality semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped1/2 cup heavy cream1/4 cup unsalted butter1/2 cup seedless red raspberry jam or even cherries1 teaspoon raspberry or vanilla extract. If you go with the cherry flavour, add some Kirpinch of salt1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and 1/2 cup of nibbed almonds or mixed nutsWhat to doPlace chocolate in a bowl. In a saucepan, bring cream and butter to a boil over medium heat. As soon as cream and butter boil, remove from heat and pour over the chocolate chips; allow to sit for 1 minute.Stir the mixture until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy. Stir in the raspberry jam.Allow to cool slightly, then stir in the raspberry extract (Kir or vanilla) and the salt. Place plastic wrap over the top of the chocolate and chill for 4 hours or until firm.To make the truffles – Using a spoon or a scoop, form chocolate into teaspoon-sized balls; you can roll balls in cocoa powder and alternative ones in the nuts, place on a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet, and refrigerate until firm.Store truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.Festive top tipsAdd a little flavour to your vegetables with flavoured butters.Sage or Basil butter – finely chop basil or sage leaves and fry in 150g of butter for two minutes, remove from the heat and chill. Then, add knobs of your flavoured butter to your freshly cooked Brussels sprouts with crispy bacon bits. Also works great with carrots.Top Tip – make it the day before and allow to set.Roasted nutsIn a hot pan for a small portion, or in a tray in an oven on high heat, place 500g of shelled nuts. Use pecans or walnuts, almonds, pistachios, and cashews, with a sprinkling of anything else you have.2 tablespoons peanut oil or melted butterSalt and freshly ground black pepperHeat the oven to 200degC. Toss the nuts in a bowl with the oil or butter and some salt and pepper. Put on a baking sheet and roast, shaking occasionally, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Cool before serving; they will crisp as they cool.Spiced Buttered Nuts. Add 1 tablespoon of any spice mixture, like chili or curry powder, to the mix. If roasting, toss the nuts with the spice at the beginning. If sautéing, add it to the butter or oil as it heats.Christmas dinner tipsIt’s family time so plan ahead and don’t get hectic in the kitchenGetting a moist bird* Regularly baste the bird, that is key and Gordon Ramsay does this, or so he says and the only extra thing you need is a piece of muslin. Make a butter a mix with fresh thyme, garlic, sea salt and pepper with butter to create a smooth mixture that can be spread evenly, all over the turkey crown.If you want you can also add other flavours like truffle oil or lemon zest. Then cover the crown in muslin and tie in place with string. Start cooking at a lower temperature: most of the cooking can be done in a low oven at around 120degC, increasing to 160-180degC towards the end. You get moister meat if you cook lower for longer.Baste over the muslin every 20 minutes while cooking and, as you do this, the muslin holds the moisture and leaving you with a juicy and succulent turkey. To get the skin brown and crispy simply take off the muslin 20 minutes before the end.* Roast the crown separate to the legs and add lemon thyme and plenty of garlic* Get you butcher to bone out the two turkey legs and you could stuff them with the chestnut stuffing, roll them in cling film and then foil and poach for one hour to allow them take their shape then finish in a ht oven for another 45 minutes (cooking time depends on their weight and size).* Add the bacon slices towards the end of cooking instead of at the start* Let the bird rest for 30mins coveredVegetables* Make cauliflower or broccoli gratin as a side vegetable dish.Cook it in the usual way but then grate parmesan over the top with some pine nuts and roast it in the oven.* For your carrot and parsnip mash, why not add a pinch of cumin as you mash them.* Roasters – boil your potatoes for 8 to 10 minutes and bash for fluffy edges. Place in a hot tray with goose fat per heated and roast for 35 mins….. Perfect. Season half way through cooking.* Brussels sprouts – There’s no need to boil the bejaysus out of them. We were all told to cut a cross in the bottom of the sprouts to help cooking but that can leave a mush after cooking as they lose their form and shape. Instead parboil them the day before then on the day lightly sauté them with chestnuts, rosemary and garlic.Sauces* Make real bread sauce – half a studded onion with a bay leaf and pepper and cover it with milk. Simmer until onion is soft. Add 4 or 5 slices of bread, ciabatta or sourdough and then blitz, add a sprinkle of salt…..* To make great gravy, fry some onions very slowly to caramelise them, add a tablespoon of tomato puree and cook for about 10 minutes. Pour in a good glug of madeira, bring to the boil and reduce to almost nothing. Add a good glug of red wine and some vegetable stock (use Knorr stocks) and the pan juices and again bring to the boil and reduce by half. Either serve it with the onions or strain it. If you want it thicker, add cornflour and whisk in a bit of cold butter at the end- it gives the gravy a beautiful glossy finish.Turkey roasting timesRemember, these are only to be used as a guide – always check for doneness – when the area behind the legs is pierced with a knife, the juices should run clear.Start at 120degC for first 30mins then increase temp to 170degC and 200degC for last 30minsApproximate roasting times for stuffed turkey6 to 8 lbs – 3 to 3-1/2 hours8 to 12 lbs – 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours12 to 16 lbs – 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours16 to 20 lbs – 5-1/2 to 6 hours20 to 24 lbs – 6 to 6-1/2 hoursApproximate roasting times for unstuffed turkey6 to 8 lbs – 2-1/2 to 3 hours8 to 12 lbs – 3 to 4 hours12 to 16 lbs – 4 to 5 hours16 to 20 lbs – 5 to 5-1/2 hours20 to 24 lbs – 5-1/2 to 6 hours Facebook Linkedin
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit has ruled in favor of U.S. Bank in a lawsuit in which a Pennsylvania couple sued to have their foreclosure dismissed on the grounds that U.S. Bank was not the holder of the note and did not have standing to foreclose.The opinion on behalf of the Third Circuit Court was authored by Judge Michael A. Chagares. The court denied the appeal filed against U.S. Bank by Pennsylvania couple Lawrence and Debbie Zimmer, who were approved for a mortgage loan from Ameriquest Mortgage Company in June 2005.According to the court ruling, the Zimmers also executed a note in favor of Ameriquest for $319,500. Five years later, in April 2010, the Zimmers entered into a loan modification agreement with Ameriquest and the note was assigned twice. The Zimmers, however, dispute the validity of those assignments. What is not disputed according to the court, however, is that the Zimmers stopped making payments in August 2010, four months after entering into the loan modification agreement, and failed to make any payments after that date.U.S. Bank, which claims it is the holder of the mortgage, began foreclosure proceedings in April 2012. The Zimmers and their attorney claimed that it was not for the same note he signed in June 2005. The court denied U.S. Bank’s motion for summary judgment in October 2013, and both parties in the suit subsequently filed motions for summary judgment against each other.The District Court denied the Zimmers’ summary judgment, saying they failed to produce any evidence that U.S. Bank was not the holder of the note.“Regarding U.S. Bank’s summary judgment motion, the District Court found there was no genuine issue of material fact because the Zimmers admitted they executed the mortgage of $319,500 in favor of Ameriquest, the Zimmers are record owners and the mortgage is in default, and the Zimmers have failed to make monthly payments on the loan due since Aug. 1, 2010,” Chagares wrote in the opinion.The Zimmers took their case to the Third Circuit Court, saying that U.S. Bank did not have standing to pursue foreclosure because the note was not properly dated, stamped or notorized; the bank’s expert, Javier Toboas, had said he believed the note did not contain proper indorsements; and U.S. bank offered two different copies of the note in summary judgement filings, according to the court.The Third Circuit Court rejected all three of the Zimmers’ arguments, saying that there was no genuine issue of material fact on the first and third arguments about the lack of a date on the note and the assertion that U.S. Bank submitted two different notes. On the Zimmers’ claim about the Toboas opinion, Chagares said that opinion “did not concern the validity of the original note but the validity of the subsequent assignments, which is not relevant here.”A spokesperson from U.S. Bank told DS News that the bank had no comment on the court’s ruling.Click here to view the court’s complete ruling.
