Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Invests in College of Business FinTech Program and Upgrade to Dr. Hitt LibraryFAIRWINDS Credit Union capped off an evening of celebration with the announcement of a $1 million gift to endow a professorship in the University of Central Florida’s proposed FinTech program, the first of its kind in the State University System.FAIRWINDS’ donation to the program, which will be fulfilled over the next eight years, was announced Feb. 20 at the UCF College of Business’ annual Hall of Fame Gala.“FAIRWINDS has been a great supporter of the College of Business for a very long time, and this most recent gift will help us produce the kinds of graduates Central Florida needs in a highly competitive and fast-changing industry,” said UCF College of Business Dean Paul Jarley. “The futures of FAIRWINDS and the College of Business, the leading supplier of business talent to the region, are intertwined. Such mutual interest is the bedrock of partnership, and we look forward to working with FAIRWINDS to create a world-class program that will propel us forward together.” FAIRWINDS chose to fund the new professorship now in honor of UCF President John C. Hitt’s 26 years of service to the university, a milestone the university will commemorate on March 1.  FAIRWINDS also announced plans to invest $100,000 this year to the Dr. Hitt Library in the UCF FAIRWINDS Alumni Center. The gift moves UCF closer to the $500 million goal of IGNITE, a comprehensive campaign for philanthropic support set to wrap up in 2019.  The campaign total currently stands at just over $350 million.  Establishing more endowed faculty positions, like the FAIRWINDS professorship, is among the top priorities of the campaign.These prestigious positions help universities – especially public institutions like UCF – recruit and retain top professors in a competitive environment.  Professors in endowed positions can use earnings from the endowment to advance their research and teaching, pay student assistants, travel to conferences, host high-profile speakers, mentor colleagues and address community needs.“We’re honored to make this commitment to our hometown university and to support the growth of the financial technology sector that is so important to the future of our members and our region,” said Larry Tobin, president and CEO of FAIRWINDS Credit Union, a UCF alumnus and member of the College of Business Hall of Fame.  “As one of the largest financial institutions headquartered in Central Florida, we believe investment in technological innovation is critical not only for those of us who provide financial services but also those who will become future leaders in this industry.” According to the Orlando Economic Partnership, Orlando’s large pool of technical talent, a plethora of tech educational resources and low cost of doing business has created fertile ground for FinTech innovation to thrive.  That growth brings an increasing demand for trained professionals, but the number of degree programs in FinTech is small given the emerging nature of the discipline. “For more than 20 years, FAIRWINDS Credit Union has been an invaluable partner to UCF,” said Michael Morsberger, CEO of the UCF Foundation.  “As this commitment shows, FAIRWINDS shares our desire to make a big impact in the lives of students, faculty, partners and the community we call home.” FAIRWINDS also recently announced it will remain the student banking services provider for UCF for at least the next five years, extending a partnership that began in 2012.  Through this partnership, FAIRWINDS is the only banking provider to offer students the option to link their UCF ID cards to a FAIRWINDS checking account for purchases on campus and at thousands of retail and ATM locations.  Student accounts have zero monthly fees and no minimum balance, and students can also secure free money orders. As part of its involvement with UCF, the recently launched FAIRWINDS Foundation supports the Cent$ible Knight$ financial literacy program, offering five $2,500 scholarships to students who complete the program.  Cent$ible Knight$ provides students with information and resources that enhance their financial knowledge and equip them to make sound financial decisions. FAIRWINDS received the UCF Partnership Award in 2015 for its long history of collaboration with UCF students, faculty and staff.About FAIRWINDS Credit UnionFAIRWINDS Credit Union, headed by President/CEO Larry Tobin, is one of the largest financial institutions headquartered in Central Florida, with assets of $2.2 billion, more than 177,000 members and over 500 employees.  The financial cooperative established in 1949 is open to anyone living or working in Central Florida.  Membership also is available to the family of members who live outside Orange, Seminole, Volusia, Osceola, Polk, Brevard or Lake counties.  For more information, visit www.fairwinds.org. About the UCF IGNITE CampaignIGNITE: The Campaign for UCF is a strategic effort to infuse UCF with $500 million in mission-critical support by the middle of 2019.  The campaign has already raised more than $350 million toward that goal.  Establishing more endowed faculty positions is among the campaign’s top priorities, along with securing funding for student scholarships and for new projects like UCF Downtown.

A residual lot originated from a subdivision of a big orthogonal property and the intersection of two diagonal streets generated a small triangular lot with very low commercial value and interest. What others would see as a disadvantage in shape and function, we saw had a huge potential. The lots of unique shapes triggered the initial ideas, which from the start, dictated that the design would be different from the neighboring houses.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe acutest corner of this triangular shape was designated to vehicular use, allowing an easily accessed driveway through both streets. At ground level, a closed volume works as the structure for the first floor, freeing the floor plan and joining the patio with the public program in an open concept erases the boundary between indoor and outdoor, generating a space enjoyable throughout most of the year thanks to the Californian weather.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaOn the second floor, a volume crosses the site through, containing the private areas of the house, formed by perimeter bearing walls which have a 4.5 meters span through the whole volume, enabling the use of lightweight partitions that allow a more flexible use through the building’s lifetime.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe stair, an adhered plane to the east facade, connects both volumes internally then transitioning to an outdoor staircase that leads to the roof, conditioned to work as a rooftop terrace taking even more advantage of the outdoor space in the lot’s constricted space. Since the neighborhood stands in one of the top hills of the city the panoramic views reach the Pacific Ocean.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaThe most interesting part of this project is that a 180 sqm lot was able to host a total of 175 sqm of construction, with an additional 190 sqm of livable outdoor space, respecting the scale of the built environment. The low cost of the lot together with the simplicity of the structure and construction details allowed a lower sale price for the property, therefore attracting younger demographics for the area, contributing to a community diversification.Save this picture!© Lorena DarqueaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Lorena DarqueaProject gallerySee allShow lessHayloft / loft buroSelected ProjectsCasa Fundamental Kindergarten / Gabriel Castro + Marcos Franchini + Pedro HarufSelected Projects Share Year:  LP3 House / Diseño Norteño “COPY” Photographs:  Lorena Darquea Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/946849/lp3-house-diseno-norteno Clipboard Houses Architects: Diseño Norteño Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Dunn Edwards, Leviton, CASTEL, Expo Stucco, Trimblelast_img read more

The Case against the petitionerIt was alleged by the prosecution that his (Anwar’s) WhatsApp status was found to be prejudicial to the maintenance of religious harmony and could have adversely affected public tranquility. It may be noted that the bail applicant updated his WhatsApp status and wrote, “You shot a bullet in Delhi, we made MP and Shajapur Shaheen Bagh (NO CAA NRC).” Thereafter, a case was registered against him under Sections 188 and 505 (2) of the Indian Penal Code.Pursuant to this, the petitioner was arrested on 2nd July 2020 and since then he was under detention. After the investigation in the case, a charge sheet was filed by the police.

Wealthy financier Jeffrey Epstein charged with sex trafficking: Indictment

first_imgRick Friedman/Rick Friedman Photography/Corbis via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy financier and registered sex offender with a circle of rich and powerful friends, has been charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy, according to a federal indictment unsealed Monday.Prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York allege that from about 2002 to 2005, Epstein, now 66, “sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls at his homes in Manhattan, New York, and Palm Beach, Florida, among other locations,” using cash payments to recruit a “vast network of underage victims,” some of whom were as young as 14 years old.Epstein “worked and conspired with others, including employees and associates who facilitated his conduct by, among other things, contacting victims and scheduling their sexual encounters with Epstein,” the indictment said.More than a decade ago, Epstein served just 13 months in jail after reaching a much-criticized plea deal that not only allowed him to plead guilty to two state charges and avoid federal charges for an allegedly broad pattern of similar conduct, but also provided him and his alleged co-conspirators with immunity from further prosecution in the Southern District of Florida.With Epstein’s sudden arrest over the weekend, however, an investigation long believed to be dormant has been thrust back into the headlines.This is a breaking news story.
