Oak Grove is a development driven venture.  Between a detailed client brief laden with ideas about visual style, and the site located in an eclectic Australian suburban context, the architecture negotiates a meaningful contemporary response within highly saturated physical and conceptual parameters.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathFor cost efficiency the project involves two identical rectangular houses placed at ninety degrees to one another creating a garden setting that brings the feeling of the large street trees into the site.  Each house has the same folded front façade derived from the site’s slightly angular orientation to north, with different alternate facets protruding, openable, glazed or solid, giving all habitable spaces flexible cross ventilation, north orientation and connection to outside.  With each façade designed to be suitable at two different orientations, the resulting appearance from the street is a series of differently folded shifting patchwork elevations rather than two identical buildings alongside one another.Save this picture!© Prue McMillanSave this picture!Lower PlanSave this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe project procures a sense of value through the expression of inexpensive materials according to their attributes and the amplification of the detail and craftsmanship inherent in the use of these materials which are usually ignored or concealed.  Both inside and out, the entirely timber framed structure is also exposed in places, enrichening the multilayered architectural textures, rhythms and scales of the buildings.  These patchwork assemblages are accordingly integral to the building fabric, with interior compositions tailored to the immediate purpose of the interfaces to each space.Save this picture!Upper PlanAlmost all surfaces of the project are coloured white.  This combines them with a sense of unity in themselves and identity in an overwhelming context of different influences, while the sensitive consideration of the transparency, gloss levels and weathering of coatings, accentuates the subtly rich façade composition, heightens the perception of the careful detailing and enables a delightful engagement with the filtering light and shadows of the trees.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathWith the uncertainty of how a development project will be occupied, this scheme is an environmentally sensitive, flexible and tactile background for living that unashamedly but humbly fits in with and shares the aspirations of its client and context.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProduct Description.  A major principle of the project is the expression of everyday construction methods in a manner that exposes and expresses the inherent craftsmanship within them that is usually concealed or ignored.  Two different variations of ”Shadowclad” exterior plywood cladding are used in combination with different arrangements and rhythms of battening that are actually an amplification of the use of straight forward coverstraps at joints.  This exposes the normally ignored craftsmanship of standard timber panel construction methods to give an impression of customised detail and quality.  Integrated within the same overall patchwork facade appearance, exterior plywood is designed into sliding and shifting insulated panels that form the flexible, folded sections of the custom designed façade system.The natural wool light fittings are hand crocheted by my mother.  In a project that is coloured almost entirely white, these soft, natural fittings filter light and are tactile objects in themselves.  They continue the white colour of the project and contribute to the multilayered variances in rhythm, texture and material that is achieved through the patchwork surfaces of the building.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessScenic Ballade / HAO DesignSelected ProjectsSANAA’s Zollverein School of Management and Design Photographed by Laurian GhinitoiuArticlesProject locationAddress:Melbourne VIC, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

The walk started at 4300 Clay Ave, the corner of Trail Lake and South Streets, and made a circle around the school.This year, donations will go to the purchasing of a new copier for the main office and an outdoor equipment shed.

We call for her immediate and unconditional release.” Alemu was arrested in 2011 with her colleague Woubeshet Taye, deputy editor of the Amharic-language weekly Awramba Times. Like Alemu, Woubeshet Taye, who was transferred on 19 April to a detention centre in Ziway, 130 km southeast of Addis Abba, has been deliberately kept far from his family, who live in the capital.In a press release issued on 26 April, Reporters Without Borders reported that the journalist was being held in deplorable conditions, which had led to a deterioration in her physical health.As the UN Human Rights Council prepares for the 19th session of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in April and May next year, the press freedom organization has submitted recommendations aimed at improving press freedom in Ethiopia. The main point of the Reporters Without Borders contribution concerns the urgent need to reform the 2009 anti-terrorism law. Since the adoption of this repressive legislation, which defines acts of terrorism in the vaguest terms, it has been used to justify the arrests of journalists who are critical of the government, such as Alemu and Taye. Ethiopia is ranked 137th of 179 countries in the 2013 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders. Read the contribution by Reporters Without Borders to the 19th session of the UPR. Photo: Ethiopian journalist, Reyot Alemu. Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the decision by the authorities of Kality prison, located outside Addis Abba, to restrict family visits to jailed journalist Reyot Alemu, a columnist for the national weekly Fitih. She has been held since June 2011 after being found guilty of participating in the promotion and communication of terrorist activities.Alemu, awarded the 2013 UNESCO-Guillermo Cano World Press Freedom Prize, is serving an arbitrary sentence of five years.Her original 14-year sentence was reduced by the federal supreme court on 3 August this year.

She denies any wrongdoing and says she will contest the case.X-rays, MRIs and ultrasound scans of 26,700 patients by hospital staff and six external radiologists are under review since late October. Independent experts are also examining the handling of tens of thousands of files from March 2016 to July 2017, involving patients in Kerry, North Cork and West Limerick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up 21 patients have been contacted for follow-up medical examinations, and no major missed cases have been identified.The review also detected some diagnostic errors that have led to delays for patients in obtaining the correct treatment.The South West Hospital Group said that a clinical co-ordinator is liaising with clients and arranging follow-up care and patients needing urgent intervention will be immediately contacted before the full review is complete.University Hospital Kerry, which has 300 beds, is the third largest hospital in the southern region and has a catchment area throughout Kerry, north Cork and part of west Limerick.A problem with the handling of MRI scans is an embarrassment for the hospital, which commissioned a state-of-the-art new MRI scanner last year. The manager of University Hospital Kerry, TJ O’Connor, said last May that the scanner was owned and fully operated by an external company and would be operational in a few weeks.In response to a Dáil question to the Department of Health, he said that there were no staff shortages in operating the new scanner or handling the scans. The scanning problem is the second major controversy for the hospital in three months.In September, a Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) report found that infection-control failures were putting the hospital’s patients at risk.The hospital has set up a patient information line 1800 742 900 that will operate from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.See more health news here WhatsApp Advertisement Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORcenter_img NewsHealthLimerick patients included in Kerry hospital reviewBy Editor – December 18, 2017 3375 Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Facebook Linkedin Twitter Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” last_img read more

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES Adjusted net revenue, adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income, adjusted Class A net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS collectively referred to as “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” are commonly used in the Company’s industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net revenue, gross profit, operating income, net income, net income attributed to Class A stockholders or earnings per share as indicators of operating performance (as determined in accordance with GAAP). These Non-GAAP Financial Measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. The Company has included these Non-GAAP Financial Measures because it believes the measures provide management and investors with additional information to measure the Company’s performance, estimate the Company’s value and evaluate the Company’s ability to service debt. Non-GAAP Financial Measures are adjusted to exclude certain items that affect comparability. The adjustments are itemized in the tables below. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reason the Company considers them appropriate for supplemental analysis. In evaluating adjustments, you should be aware that in the future the Company may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments set forth below. The presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or recurring items. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income adjusted to exclude (i) interest expense, net, (ii) depreciation and amortization (iii) income taxes and (iv) share-based compensation, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. For example, adjusted EBITDA:does not reflect the Company’s capital expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs;does not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company’s debt; anddoes not reflect payments related to income taxes, the Tax Receivable Agreement or distributions to the non-controlling interest to reimburse its tax liability.

On an adjusted basis, gross profit increased 27.2%, primarily due to improved price and mix, the accretive margin expansion generated from Voortman and operational efficiencies.Net income was $24.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share compared to $23.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share. Adjusted net income increased $5.9 million, or 25.9%, to $28.7 million, resulting in $0.21 adjusted EPS compared to $0.16 adjusted EPS. The increases in adjusted net income and adjusted EPS were primarily due to the accretion from Voortman and an increase in Hostess® branded sales.Adjusted EBITDA was $63.7 million, or 24.9% of net revenue, an increase of 21.6%. The increase was primarily driven by Voortman’s adjusted EBITDA contribution and higher Hostess® branded sales.Cash and cash equivalents were $173.0 million as of December 31, 2020 resulting in a leverage ratio of 3.9x. Other Quarter Highlights:Executed initial sell-in of 2021 innovation slate which establishes platforms for incremental future growth in both the sweet baked goods and specialty better-for-you cookie categories.Continued strong profit accretion from Voortman following the completion of key integration activities.Simplified capital structure with the final exchange of Class B units and removal of the non-controlling interest.Increased total Hostess manufacturer point of sale by 4.9%, ahead of the Sweet Baked Goods category, driven by Hostess® branded growth.

The Company reaffirms its long-term financial objectives of organic revenue growth, adjusted EBITDA margins and free cash flow conversion in the top-quartile of its peers. Fourth Quarter 2020 Compared to Fourth Quarter 2019 Net revenue was $256.0 million, an increase of 18.1%, or $39.3 million, compared to $216.7 million. Growth was driven by the acquisition of Voortman which contributed $28.7 million. Sweet baked goods net revenue increased $10.6 million, or 4.9% driven by higher volume of core products partially offset by lower sales of private label and non-Hostess® branded products. Gross profit was $95.8 million, or 37.4% of net revenue, compared to $70.8 million, or 32.7% of net revenue. Adjusted gross profit was $95.8 million, or 37.4% of net revenue, compared to $75.3 million, or 34.7% of net revenue. Gross margin benefited from product mix, lower promotional activity, the accretion of Voortman, and operating efficiencies. Operating costs and expenses were $51.5 million, or 20.1% of net revenue, compared to $31.2 million, or 14.4% of net revenue. The increase was attributed to lapping the prior-year benefits from remeasurements of a foreign currency contract and the tax receivable agreement as well as the 2020 addition of Voortman operating costs, higher employee incentive costs due to timing of accruals and an impairment of property and equipment. The Company’s effective tax rate was 25.6%, compared to 20.2%. The increase in the effective tax rate is due to the Class A for Class B share exchanges during 2020. Net income was $24.4 million compared to $23.6 million and dilutive EPS was $0.18 compared to $0.17. Adjusted net income was $28.7 million, compared to $22.8 million and adjusted EPS was $0.21, compared to $0.16. Adjusted net income increased as a result of the higher volume and increase in gross profit noted above, partially offset by higher operating costs and depreciation and amortization as a result of the Voortman acquisition. Adjusted EBITDA was $63.7 million, or 24.9% of net revenue, compared to $52.4 million, or 24.2% of net revenue. The increase was driven by $8.6 million of adjusted EBITDA from Voortman and higher volume of Hostess® branded products. During the fourth quarter, all remaining shares of Class B common stock were exchanged for Class A common stock. This exchange eliminated the non-controlling interest reported on the Company’s consolidated statement of operations simplifying the Company’s organizational structure. As part of this exchange, and under the securities repurchase authorization announced in the third quarter, the Company repurchased 0.4 million of its Class A shares for $6.0 million in cash and 2 million private placement warrants for $2.0 million in cash. The Company has $92.0 million remaining under its securities repurchase program.

Stating that the Council stands with the farmers in their agitation against new laws, the Council has informed that the Advocates of Punjab and Haryana have been actively participating in the farmers agitation (for the last two months). Regarding the Farmers’ Acts Further, the Bar Council has also requested the Union Government to immediately withdraw the 3 Farmers’ Acts passed by the Parliament recently. The press note states, “The Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana opposes the new Agriculture Acts passed by the Central government. These new enactments are not only detrimental to the interests of farmers but are also detrimental to the interest of lawyers. The Bar of civil court jurisdiction in these new Acts is serious challenge to the independence of judiciary.” It further states, “The separation of judiciary and executive is a salient feature of our constitution. Under the new Acts the disputes will be heard by SDM/ADMs who are not trained to hear the litigation involving civil consequences and moreover, they are administrative organ of the Government and would be unable to protect the rights of farmers. The disputes arising out of new enactments will involve commercial matters, contract act agreement and partnership matters which is under the preview of civil courts and therefore, baring the civil court jurisdiction is detrimental to the interest of lawyers and is an effort to undermine the judiciary.” The Bar Council has also appreciated the active participation of advocates of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh in the farmers’ agitation. Support for Bharat Bandh While announcing its supports for the call of Bharat Bandh the Council has also requested the Advocates of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh including Punjab & Haryana High Court to abstain from work on 8th December 2020. Significantly, the Bar Council has also requested the Chairman BCI and to the Chairman’s of all the State Bar Councils throughout India to support the call of Bharat Bandh given by farmers on 8th December 2020 by abstaining from the work. Additionally, the Bar Council has also decided to send 1000 blankets and dry ration to the agitating farmers at Sindhu boarder “in order to help and support the farmers”. It may be noted that the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana is a statutory body under the Advocates Act 1961 which is the Apex Body of the Lawyers of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh. There are around One Lakh Ten Thousand Advocates enrolled with the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana.Related News Stating that the “Bar of Civil Court Jurisdiction” will be detrimental to the interest of legal professionals, the Bar Council of Delhi, on Wednesday (02nd December), wrote a letter to PM Narendra Modi requesting for the immediate withdrawal of the three legislations (Farm Acts) pertaining to farmers and to give an audience to the leaders of the farmers in order for an amicable solution to be reached. It may be noted that on Sunday (27th September 2020) the Ministry of Law and Justice (Legislative Department) notified the presidential assent to the following 4 Acts:- 1. The Farmers’ Produce Trade And Commerce (Promotion And Facilitation) Act, 2020; (Presidential assent received on 24th September) 2. The Farmers (Empowerment And Protection) Agreement On Price Assurance And Farm Services Act, 2020; (Presidential assent received on 24th September) 3. The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020; and (Presidential assent received on 26th September) 4. The Jammu And Kashmir Official Languages Act, 2020 (Presidential assent received on 26th September) Congress MP in Lok Sabha, TN Prathapan has moved the Supreme Court challenging the constitutional validity of the Farmers’ (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020. Also, Tiruchi Siva, Member of Parliament (DMK) has also moved the Supreme Court challenging three controversial enactments. The Supreme Court In October 2020 issued notice to the Central Government on three writ petitions challenging the three farm laws passed by the Parliament recently, which have attracted opposition from several farmers groups across the country. The bench was considering three writ petitions filed by Manohar Lal Sharma, office bearers of Chattisgarh Kisan Congress (Rakesh Vaishnav and others) and DMP MP Tiruchi Siva.[Image Courtesy: Times Now]Click Here to Download Letter [Read Letter]Next Storylast_img read more
