Finally, the supplier said that the claims of fraud fail as they do not specify exact incidents or events that constitute such illegal activity, and are based on statements made by third parties.Read the full story on iGB North America.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here From The Orange County Consumer Fraud DivisionNo matter the reason or the season, from remodeling projects to gearing up for hurricane season in Orange County, protecting yourself from fraudulent contractors can save you from unnecessary headaches and expenses.Homeowners around the nation face the same risks when searching for someone to do repair work or remodeling on their homes. Unsuspecting Orange County consumers can be easy prey for unlicensed contractors whose bids are almost inevitably much lower than the bids of licensed contractors. The strong appeal of saving money can be overwhelming, but buyers must beware. The cheapest contractor available may be the one who will cost the most in the long run.“People don’t understand the risks and, therefore, don’t do proper background checks on contractors, and they often end up regretting it,” said Carlos Morales, supervisor of the Orange County Consumer Fraud Office. “Having a license is critical because it protects both parties from anything that might go wrong during the process.”Morales explained that unlicensed contractors have advantages that enable them to provide the lowest prices. They don’t have to pay licensing fees, don’t have to obtain a bond to protect their work, and, more often than not, don’t purchase liability or workers compensation insurance. Without these added expenses, the unlicensed contractor can provide their services at a rate lower than the legitimately licensed professional, but it puts the consumer at risk.“If you hire an unlicensed contractor and he falls off a ladder while doing work at your house, you’re liable,” added Morales. “An unlicensed contractor will also try to cut corners on the work because they don’t have to adhere to building codes, so if a hurricane hits, or even a severe thunderstorm, your house may not hold up to Florida weather conditions.”The goal of the Orange County Consumer Fraud Office is to investigate consumer complaints and work to resolve them through mediation. The Office can also issue citations, refer the complaint to other appropriate agencies and even press criminal charges against the egregious party.“While many of these contractors are just too lazy and cheap to get their licenses, some of them are criminals who will take your money without doing the work and even steal your property,” warned Morales. “These are organized criminals who canvas neighborhoods and lure you in with cheap prices.”While fraud may not know geographical boundaries, the good news is that specific Florida laws have been passed to protect property owners from incompetent or dishonest contractors. The state licensing process tests basic competency and also screens out dishonest contractors. A valid license is the first indication that your contractor might be qualified to do the job. According to the Orange County Consumer Fraud Office, you should do the following when hiring a contractor:Avoid door-to-door solicitors.Insist on references, a proper license, bonding and insurance.Check out credentials.Make sure the contract can be broken if you don’t receive financing.Hire a contractor with a real office, not just a post office box address.“One of our main goals is to help residents recognize fraud and teach them how to avoid becoming a victim,” said Morales, who also recommended residents get three or four bids before choosing a contractor. “Education and awareness are the keys to protecting yourself from fraud. It can happen to anyone, regardless of age, and especially in Florida, where the weather dictates we prepare and repair when necessary.”For more information on the Orange County Consumer Fraud Office and protecting yourself from fraud, go to www.orangecountyfl.net, call 407-836-2490 or 311, or email [email protected] The home repair/construction complaint form may also be found at www.ocfl.net/fraud and you can report unlicensed contractors by calling 407-836-5960.

The 8 floors of the building have a perfect triangular plan, 76 m2 per floor, with natural light on one side and blind dividing walls (due to urban planning, buildings next to it will never match him in height) in the other two sides.

Office buildings developed decades ago enough mechanisms to promote the versatility required for its use. Unlike what happens in homes, spaces are often modular, so they can be zoomed in as needed, and ceilings and raised floors allow for changes in lighting and air conditioning facilities without the need for wet works and leftovers.Save this picture!Floor PlanUnconventional materials for houses have been used, such as metal panels, polished concrete paving and wood chip recycled boards in walls, setting furniture and movable walls that allow great flexibility of space, thanks to sliding panels and mobile cabinet on wheels designed to be separate two spaces or making one.Save this picture!© Licinia AlbertiProject gallerySee allShow lessRadio Corse Frequenza Mora / atel’erarchitectureSelected ProjectsOffice in Jalan Sunda / Dinardithen Studio BandungSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Calle del General Díaz Porlier, 109, 28028 Madrid, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Located within an upward steep slope and considering a wide program of necessities, the project required a dialogue of minimum topographic impact; that pursues something “special” in the terrain.Casa LL manages, in a successful way, the user´s enjoyable coexistence with the project’s material composition; which combines the perfect balance between outdoor views, distribution and privacy. It also manages for both horizontal and vertical routes to be light and peaceful through the project.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezIn a street view, Casa LL exalts its character with three blocks that demonstrate the distribution program´s rationality. One dark, strong body at the construction base contains the project´s services and elevates the social amenities which are perceived with an apparent concrete wall carefully labored, yielding prominence to a wooden cube that highlights the main entrance. A light colored cube composed of two openings shapes the house´s closing element creating a feeling of lightness. Privacy is obtained by expressing material contrast throughout the work.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Oscar HernándezThe house´s main entrance elevates half floor over the street level, consists of a stairwell composition that carries the user though a small access square directly to the lobby.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezSave this picture!Upper Floor PlanSave this picture!© Oscar HernándezAt main level, the house itself is a social area, it directly connects kitchen, living room, office, garden and swimming pool; allowing visual permeability though glass panels that separates house and central garden´s areas.A black crystal cube, placed such as an inert monolith between kitchen and dining room vestibules the area, generates attractive reflections from any visual angle and encloses kitchen equipment and cupboard.Save this picture!© Oscar HernándezThe double height main living room distends the garden and swimming pool views thought sizeable windows. This is where the stairwell yields its leadership throughout a rising elegant steel case spiral from base to main level, continuing its way over the upper railing, creating an ethereal effect.The swimming pool, which is one of the projects main axis, is contained within a mixed box of concrete and glass panels. It integrates to the program with direct access from the base and upper levels. This particular area manages to become a space for relaxation, recreation and contemplation.

Advertisement EDM Media launch first multiple donor marketing data file EDM Media has launched ‘The National Fundraising File’, the first direct marketing data file of multiple charity donors. The file has been built by and is exclusive to EDM Media, who say that it opens the market to small charities wanting to run highly targeted fundraising campaigns by mail, phone or email.The file consists of 318,314 “highly-responsive individuals” who have given to more than one charity, 86% of whom have given to up to four charities simultaneously. All have completed a detailed questionnaire, and been identified as charity supporters and good prospects for charity appeals, offering postal, email and telephone data.Profiled as retired 60+, 68% female, homeowners, EDM describe these individuals as financially secure, and having proved to be generous to a wide range of charitable causes with an average donation gift of £10. All are mail-order responsive, particularly to charity appeals, sweepstakes, and health catalogue offers.EDM Media’s Operations Director, Lisa Neville, said: “For the first time, smaller charities can access the kind of profiled selections that traditionally has only been viable for larger charities holding high volume databases.”Until now many smaller charities have not been able to afford a detailed profile for targeting when working with small data volumes of less than 20,000; even if they had, they would have discovered that profiling such a small number is less likely to provide a statistically reliable profile.Neville added: “It’s a perfect database for new charities launching with no data of their own, and larger mailers can also benefit from the uplift of a profile based on multi-donors who have a proven propensity to respond to direct marketing.”She said that the National Fundraising File can be used in a variety of campaigns, whether to regular committed givers, cash donors or legacy pledgers; and via direct mail, online or telemarketing.From the file charities can select major donors, legacy prospects, regular givers, cash donors or charity raffle players. They can then overlay this data by type of cause supported including third world, medical, animal, children, religious and environmental causes. They can then make further demographic selections to fine tune their campaign. 40 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 39 total views, 1 views today Tagged with: Individual giving Howard Lake | 3 June 2007 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
