I love it! Only problem is, on most jobs, if you bring your dog to work with you, you won’t have a job! Narrow minded bosses, who aren’t any fun, what so ever. 2016 marks the 18th annual celebration of Take Your Dog To Work DayEvent creator Pet Sitters International reflects on the growth of pet-friendly policies and encourages companies to “make it their business” to help pets in need on June 24.With high-profile companies such as Google, Mashable, Etsy and even Ben & Jerry’s offering pet-friendly work environments, it’s easy to forget that the trend of dogs in the office is still a relatively new one. When Pet Sitters International (PSI) created Take Your Dog To Work Day® in 1999, PSI President Patti Moran says the day was initially met with skepticism. Since that time, however, the annual event – which will be celebrated this year on Friday, June 24 – has grown in popularity and PSI hears from companies across the United States and abroad that are excited to experience dogs in the office, even if just for one day to support a great cause.“The idea was first inspired by Take Your Daughter to Work Day. We thought a similar day was a great idea because we knew so many pet owners see their dogs as surrogate children,” explains Moran. “We believed the idea had merit but it was a tough sell convincing other businesses that the Day could be a great morale booster for employees and help promote local pet adoptions. For the first few years, we spent countless hours calling companies around the country, pitching the idea and encouraging them to participate.”“It was truly a grassroots effort,” she adds. “So, it’s very exciting to see how much the popularity of pets in the workplace has grown since we first launched the Day.”The trend has certainly grown since the inception of Take Your Dog To Work Day and shows no signs of slowing. A 2015 Society for Human Resource Management survey found that 8 percent of American workplaces allow employees to bring pets (up from 5 percent in 2013). More and more companies are likely to jump on the pet-friendly bandwagon as they seek to attract millennials who are set to soon surpass baby boomers as the largest pet-owning generation and who will be making up almost half of the workforce by 2020.“2016 marks the 18th annual celebration and we hope that the increasing acceptance of pets in the workplace will open the door for even more companies to celebrate dogs and promote their adoptions by hosting a Take Your Dog To Work Day event,” Moran concludes.Ready this article to make sure your dog is office-ready. 1 COMMENT Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

The approach taken for the Mash House is one which celebrates outdoor space. The original double-fronted Victorian house offered a plethora of challenges including limited solar access. In predictable fashion, services had been attached to the rear of the dwelling over time, effectively dislocating the living areas from the backyard. A belt of space to the east of the house laid bare where a driveway once existed. An old shed, stretching the width of site, sat idly to the rear. These elements combined, meant the overriding feel of the house was one of disconnection.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System – LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornThe design by Andrew Maynard Architects offers a sound, simple solution to a rather challenging site. The concept was driven by obtaining passive efficiency, via shrewd siting and orientation. Quality insulation, ample double-glazing and in-slab heating all combine to make this home a sustainable exercise in modern house renovation. Sketches and photographs of Mash House following the break.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiThe young family desired, above all, a functional living and kitchen space. Squeezing in an en-suite would be a bonus. Instead of jamming further additions to the back of the house, a glass walkway pulled from the existing dwelling allows a distinct, spatial break between old and new. The residual space is framed as a courtyard, meaning the new living area has direct access to northern light and associated passive solar gain. In place of the old binary layout of external vs internal, the house is now articulated as three masses – the original dwelling, addition and garage, each punctuated by outside space. A blurred line exists not between old and new, but inside and out. The result is a collection of connected spaces, spoilt for light and air.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiBeyond siting measures, every effort has been made to minimise the ecological impact of the extension. Where plausible, new materials have been shunned in favour of their reclaimed counterparts. The entire original dwelling has been re-floored in recycled spotted gum. Where the house sees greater light exposure to the rear, a concrete slab works as an oversized thermal sink. Heat absorbed during the day is radiated throughout the night, helping maintain a constant and pleasant temperature. Ample double glazing and quality insulation throughout furthers this effect. Another significant consideration was that of the carbon footprint; demolition was proposed only where necessary and specifically to break open the stifling internalisation present to the rear of the dwelling.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiInternally, radiating from the kitchen, the layering of spaces affords great flexibility. With doors fully open, the living space is transformed into a deck between court and backyard. The flow between spaces is palpable, but not without undulation. Walking from entry to exit, the procession is marked by altering moods. The existing hallway terminates in a fully-operable glass link, allowing light to drown the traditionally under-lit corridor. The bulkhead of the linking passage sits lower than the ceiling of the adjacent living space, augmenting the feel of spaciousness once traversed.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiThe kitchen, prominent in its location, is strategically modest. The clients, both caterers, were adamant that work need not be brought home. Conversely, having resigned to the fact kitchens get messy, the walk in pantry is relatively large in desire of keeping any mess out of sight. Beyond providing plenty of workspace, a lengthy island bench, breaching both original and new spaces, offers a linking element.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiThe main addition sits as though it was dropped from the sky; whereby the new sits detached from the old, allowing a conversation between masses. The aim is to compliment, not dominate. With three of the four inhabitants female, the form of the building abstractly reflects this. The softened, bevelled edges of the box lend it a softer, more feminine feel. Further to this, the spotted gum cladding of the new placates the robust masonry of the existing. Internally, snippets of primary colour and shapes lend the spaces a subtle yet conscious playfulness.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiFlanking the master bedroom, and making good use of the defunct driveway, are en-suite and walk in robe, plugged to the side of the original building. Mimicking the form of the main addition, simply scaled down, these lusciously green pods provide a hint from street level of what lies behind. Inside, the white walls of en-suite and bathroom are splattered with a pattern of red tiles, providing an another unexpected focal point.Save this picture!© Kevin HuiSave this picture!© Kevin HuiProject gallerySee allShow lessOne New Change OpensArticlesQueensland Courtyard House / Plazibat & Jemmott ArchitectsArticles Share Mash House / Austin Maynard ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMash House / Austin Maynard Architects Mash House / Austin Maynard Architects Houses Photographs CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on October 31, 2010Cite: “Mash House / Austin Maynard Architects” 31 Oct 2010.

The mortgage lending business has used technology to automate and digitize a process that had traditionally been buried in piles of paper. In fact, we have accomplished so much here that most people don’t even notice that our business adopts technology more slowly than just about any other industry.Changes in our industry have continued to be fomented by both market and regulatory forces. A keen observer of these will attempt to forecast both the business and technological evolutions that must be adopted not just to cope, but to lead. The pace of these changes require that we look several steps ahead. We certainly saw that just after the financial crash, when it became clear that one in 10 home loan borrowers would go into default. The same thing happened to loan origination system (LOS) developers during the runup to the crash.With loan volumes three times as high as they had ever been before, lenders were struggling to keep up. The problem was that most of the new business was subprime and the old LOSs didn’t work as well with those “story” loans. They needed new tools if they were going to keep up with Wall Street’s appetite for assets they could securitize. There were plenty of observers in those days warning of the imminent crash. We must look at leading indicators in the development and adoption of new technology with the same diligence that we have always read the tea leaves that might forecast changes in interest rates. With that goal in mind, let’s explore five hot tech trends and see what they may mean for our business in 2018.TREND 1: PLATFORM CROWDINGFor the longest time, much of the work performed by industry technologists had to do with writing code to seamlessly connect different systems, owned and controlled by different parties. Ensuring data integrity, security, and ease-of-use was tough work. No one wanted to give up too much about their own proprietary systems. Today, that work is pretty much all done for us by the software.The Application Programmer Interface (API) made it possible for the programmer to expose data feeds and query hooks into a system, making it easy for another programmer working on another system to connect and share information. Today, there are a great many APIs accessible via the internet that can allow a coder to reach out and get just about any kind of information they need. Security is built in. Data integrity is a function of the standards and protocols created by the API developer.This has contributed to a shift from software application development to platform development, where the platform user connects to various other necessary systems via APIs to get the information required to complete the work. As a consequence of this, we’re seeing more partnerships where platform providers are gaining access to systems operated by third parties that already work with lenders or servicers. This means that users of the platform don’t have to buy or install software from the third party anymore. They can just connect it to their existing platform, whether that be a LOS, a servicing platform or an asset management platform.What does this suggest for the future? We think it means that platform developers have to do a better job of finding, vetting and connecting to the applications that their users need. It has now become a primary driver of their customer’s satisfaction. Th e companies that do it best will be most successful.It also means that more users from different parts of the industry are likely to crowd onto the best platforms, regardless of who those systems were originally designed to serve. We’re seeing that now with some of our urban revitalization efforts. We’re working with asset managers, as usual, but now we’re also making room for investors, lenders, field services personnel, and community-based organizations. They don’t all need their own platforms. They just need a platform that can connect them all together to meet their mutual goals.TREND 2: DEMAND FOR MORE TRANSPARENCYThe concept of the “black box” has fallen out of favor. Today, it’s not good enough to just tell a party to a transaction, a business partner or a regulator that the right information is in there. You must be able to prove it. Everyone wants to know what information exists where and where it’s going next.Consequently, we’re seeing a big shift toward transparent platforms. In fact, I would go so far as to say that if you don’t offer full transparency, your platform will struggle to get user adoption.From data we began collecting in 2015, we’ve seen with the launch of new software we created for transparent real estate offer management, that REO managers were seeing a significant increase in a number of important metrics related to the sale of REO properties as well as a reduction in time on the market. These improvements only occur with transparency built into the platform. Here are some of the metrics we found after studying nearly 425,000 offers placed through the system.Sellers saw an increase of 66.74 percent in the average number of initial offers (not counters) per propertySellers received 3.15 more offers for a total of 7.87 per propertyThe average days on market per property decreased by 9.33 daysThe average percentage of sale price to initial listing price increased by 11.13 percent, resulting in sellers getting 107.88 percent of their listing priceTransparency is a good and necessary thing. But we expect to see the push for even more transparency across all of our industry’s platforms. In the end, we expect this to increase adoption for the industry’s best platforms and wash the others out.TREND 3: REGTECH WILL GET BUILT INOver the past few years, we’ve all watched the rise of Regtech with various states of anxiety. Regtech is built specifi cally for regulatory compliance. On the one hand, technology is our only hope for complying with an avalanche of new rules. On the other, the idea of having to buy, install, train for, and then demand adoption of new technologies is never comfortable for anyone. As the rules continue to change, we expect the technology to evolve in order to keep up, but the real trend is the way companies are choosing to use it.More and more, we’re hearing customers demand that the Regtech they need be either built into our systems—where much of it already lives –or to be seamlessly connected so that users can access it without leaving their normal working platform. This implies that many of the developers working on compliance technology will get purchased by platform developers in the near future, which is the exit strategy for which many of these developers have secretly hoped would happen.TREND 4: MORE TOOLS WITH MOBILE REACHLoan originators and the software developers that serve them have all done a great job moving the front end of the home finance transaction out beyond our traditional platforms. They have created portals and apps that are allowing more borrowers to interact with their lenders the way they want to and on their own schedules. But the loan origination process is just the tip of the iceberg.An American consumer may spend 30 days or more going through the work of buying a new mortgage loan, but they will spend a much longer period of time paying it back. Some borrowers, the minority, spend 30 years on a conventional loan that they spend just a few weeks originating. This suggests that the servicing industry should be doing more to connect with borrowers in the mobile space because there will be more pressure on servicers to maintain customer relationships in those cases where buyers have bought in haste, or bought the wrong product.I don’t think this has happened in the past because the nature of the servicing business has always been about processing payments and less about customer relationship management. Th at’s going to change for a lot of reasons that have nothing to do with technology. It’s going to be about customer service expectations that loan buyers have developed from all their other online transactions, increasingly on their mobile devices. Buyers will continue their interest in communicating even after the loan closes.The plus for servicers is that in the unlikely event that the borrower gets into trouble, they have more ways to stay in touch with the borrower and more of an opportunity to get the consumer back on track. It may not always work, but it’s got to be better than the method’s default servicers have been using up to now to track down borrowers that fall off the grid when they get into trouble.TREND 5: NO PAPER ANYWHEREFinally, technology will, after decades of working on the problem, get paper out of our process. With everything in the process now fully electronic, including the note, there’s no reason for the lender to keep holding onto paper. This is good news because the lender will no longer have to spend the time and money collecting all of the paper, stacking it up, sending it to the investor, who will send it to the servicer, who will give it to a custodian, who will lose it.This doesn’t mean there won’t be any paper involved in closing a mortgage loan, just that lenders won’t have to worry about it. While we’re still seeing lenders paper out at the end of the process, it’s primarily so borrowers have something they can take home with them, other than 30 years of debt that is. Consumers still want the paper, at least some of it. And that’s a consumer technology trend that will continue until we get consumers to completely trust our industry. That could take a while.I think the important thing to note in all of the trends we have identified in this article is that none of them are really about new technologies. Rather, they are focused on people and the way people are choosing to use technology today. These trends will determine which tools get used.There may yet be new technologies developed, but it is unlikely that they will impact our industry in the near future. We already have tools to take our business to consumers where they want it and when be that at home or on a mobile device. We have digital signatures and secure systems through which to view and sign the documents. I don’t think it’s likely that we’ll have consumers asking us to close a loan or handle a dispute in virtual reality, at least not any time soon.No, we have the tools we need to get our work done and to satisfy our customers. The only question now is how we will use them. Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

Brett Taylor/Thinkstock(INDIANAPOLIS) — An Indiana orchestra teacher claims his former school forced him to resign after he refused to refer to a transgender student by their preferred name.Brownsburg High School has a policy that mandates teachers call transgender students by their preferred name, in place of their birth name.John Kluge, who taught at the high school for four years, disagreed with the rule and said he instead wanted to refer to the student by their last name.“I feel the compelled speech of forcing a teacher to take a side on this very highly controversial topic is a violation of our First Amendment rights,” Kluge told ABC affiliate WRTV.Kluge told WRTV the school told him he must either follow the policy, resign or be fired. He said he submitted a conditional resignation later, but later withdrew the resignation before the deadline.A school district representative told WRTV that Kluge voluntarily submitted a resignation and the administration accepted it.Kluge believed he would be suspended pending termination on May 1, according to WRTV. He called his meeting with the administration “very threatening” and “bullying.”“I enjoy being the orchestra teacher at Brownsburg,” Kluge wrote in a statement. “It’s unfortunate that the administration is not letting me come back and that they are unwilling to continue a reasonable accommodation that most people consider to be very common sense.”He went on to ask that the board reconsider his termination.The administration told WRTV it’s complying with all state and federal laws.According to the Brownsburg Community School Corporation, a student is allowed to change their preferred name only with a letter from a parent and a health care professional.“Showing a lack of support for transgender youth is what drives up the suicide rates of transgender youth in Indiana,” Chris Paulsen, executive director of the LGBTQ organization Indiana Youth Group, told WRTV.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
