The
United States Trustee Program is a component of the Department of Justice that seeks to promote the efficiency and protect the integrity of the Federal
bankruptcy system.  To further the public interest in the just, speedy and economical resolution of cases filed under the
Bankruptcy Code, the Program monitors the
conduct of bankruptcy parties and private estate trustees, oversees related administrative functions, and acts to ensure compliance with applicable laws and
procedures.  It also identifies and helps investigate bankruptcy fraud and abuse in coordination with United States Attorneys, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and
other law enforcement agencies.

DON'T GET "LOCKED OUT" OF YOUR HOME
BY A BANKRUPTCY SCAM OPERATOR
Are you having trouble making your home mortgage payments? Are you facing foreclosure on your home? Get all the facts before you pay someone to help you work
out your mortgage problems.
"Bankruptcy foreclosure scams" target people whose home mortgages are in trouble. Scam operators advertise over the Internet and in local publications, distribute
flyers, or contact people whose homes are listed in the foreclosure notices. Sometimes they direct their appeals to specific religious or ethnic groups.
These scam operators may promise to take care of your problems with your mortgage lender or to obtain refinancing for you. Sometimes they also ask you to pay your
mortgage payments directly to the scam operator. They may even ask you to hand over your property deed to the operator, and then make payments to the operator
in order to stay in your home.

The Marshals Service administers the Department of Justice's
Asset Forfeiture Program by managing and disposing of properties seized and forfeited by federal law
enforcement agencies and U.S. attorneys nationwide. The program has become a key part of the federal government's efforts to combat major criminal activities.
There are three goals of the Asset Forfeiture Program: enforcing the law; improving law enforcement cooperation; and enhancing law enforcement through revenue.
Asset forfeiture is a law enforcement success story, and the Marshals Service plays a vital role.
In 1984, Congress enacted the Comprehensive Crime Control Act, which gave federal prosecutors new forfeiture provisions to combat crime. Also created by this
legislation was the Department of Justice Assets Forfeiture Fund (AFF). The proceeds from the sale of forfeited assets such as real property, vehicles, businesses,
financial instruments, vessels, aircraft and jewelry are deposited into the AFF and are subsequently used to further law enforcement initiatives.

The
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which can be found in Title 5 of the United States Code, section 552(1), was enacted in 1966 and generally provides that any
person has the right to request access to federal agency records or information. All agencies of the Executive Branch of the United States Government are required to
disclose records upon receiving a written request for them, except for those records (or portions of them) that are protected from disclosure by the nine exemptions
and three exclusions of the FOIA. This right of access is enforceable in court, and it is supported at the administrative agency level by the "citizen-centered and results-
oriented approach" of a presidential executive order (see below).
The FOIA does not, however, provide access to records held by Congress or the federal courts, by state or local government agencies, or by private businesses or
individuals. All states have their own statutes governing public access to state and local government records; state agencies should be consulted for further
information about them.
This Reference Guide is designed to familiarize you with the specific procedures for making a FOIA request to the United States Department of Justice. The process is
neither complicated nor time consuming. Following the guidance below will make it more likely that you will receive the information that you are seeking in the shortest
amount of time possible. This Reference Guide also includes descriptions of the types of records maintained by different parts of the Department, some of which are
readily available through means other than the FOIA, including through the World Wide Web. The Justice Department's home page on the World Wide Web is at www.
usdoj.gov; in particular, its FOIA home page is at www.usdoj.gov/foia.

The
American Bankruptcy Institute is the largest multi-disciplinary, non-partisan organization dedicated to research and education on matters related to insolvency.
ABI was founded in 1982 to provide Congress and the public with unbiased analysis of bankruptcy issues. The ABI  membership includes more than 11,000 attorneys,
auctioneers, bankers, judges, lenders, professors, turnaround specialists, accountants and other bankruptcy professionals providing a forum for the exchange of
ideas and information. In fulfillment of its mission to provide information to its members, journalists, Congress and the public, ABI is engaged in numerous educational
and research activities, as well as the production of a number of publications both for the insolvency practitioner and the public.

Standards for Review of Appraisals
Table of Contents
A. Data Documentation and Appraisal Reporting Standards
Introduction
B. Legal Basis for Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions
C. Standards for the Review of Appraisals
Introduction. The review and documentation of the appraisal process should be in conformity with these Standards, which are compatible with standards and practices
of the appraisal industry and with the current edition of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). 320 It has been necessary, however, to
invoke USPAP's Jurisdictional Exception Rule in certain instances, so as to conform these Standards to overriding federal laws and regulations on the review of
appraisal reports prepared for use in government land acquisitions. 321
Government review appraisers are often assigned administrative duties in addition to the technical review of individual appraisal reports. Those administrative duties
vary from agency to agency and may range from contract administration or counseling management for general valuation issues to assisting the agency to meet both
its non-appraisal and appraisal obligations under P.L. 91-646. 322 Some of these duties may fall outside the scope of USPAP. These administrative duties are also
considered to fall outside the scope of these Standards and are therefore not covered in the following discussion.

Basics of
Tilt-Up Construction  
A successful Tilt-Up project begins long before concrete is poured. As with any project, the key is thorough planning. An experienced Tilt-Up contractor can be
successful on a wide variety of projects. The beginner, however, should choose more carefully. These pages explains the basic methods and skills required for
successful Tilt-Up construction.
Site evaluation - Planning begins with an evaluation of the site.
Engineering - Engineering is a critical phase of each and every Tilt-Up project.
Footings and Floor Slabs - Once planning is complete, construction can begin on the floor and footings
Panel Forming - There are a number of ways to form individual panels.
Surface treatments - Patterns or texture can easily be added to the face of Tilt-Up panels.
Reinforcing - The use of plastic support chairs instead of steel chairs is recommended to avoid rusting.
Embeds and Inserts - The next step is to install embeds and inserts.
Concrete Placement - Concrete placement methods for Tilt-Up panels are the same as those for floor slabs.
Panel Lifting - The lifting sequence should be determined well in advance.
Panel Finishing - The finish of a panel is limited only by the creativity of the architect and the abilities of the contractor.
Insulated Panels - Insulated Tilt-Up panels are a rapidly growing market.
Contractors can learn Tilt-Up on their own or work with consultants who can assist them on the entire project or just specific portions. In all cases, contractors should
acquire as much background knowledge as possible and contact a professional architect or engineer who has Tilt-Up experience. Associations (including the TCA)
that can provide information on Tilt-Up construction include:

The
Utilization of the Sales Comparison Approach in the Valuation of
Public Utility Property
The Sales Comparison Approach is an often ignored evaluation tool in the appraisal of public
utility property. Sales data is strong evidence in the valuation of public utility property, particularly for
the purposes of ad valorem taxation, acquisitions, and other litigation scenarios. The inherent
weaknesses of both the Cost and Income Approaches can be greatly diminished or overcome with
supportive sales data in many public utility valuation problems. The estimation of accrued depreciation in
the Cost Approach and the selection of appropriate rates within the Income Approach are generally
highly subjective without market data. Judgmental estimates for both de- preciation and the several rates
utilized in valuation analysis can be bolstered with sales evidence drawn directly from the market, itself.

Pitfalls of
Discounted Cash Flow
Analysis in the Valuation of Certain Income
Producing Special Purpose Properties
A discounted cash flow analysis is often the analytical methodology of choice when an income
producing special purpose property, such as solid waste management facilities, certain mineral and
quarry properties, and certain agricultural and agribusiness propitious, among others, is appraised.
Caution should be taken when confronted with a discounted cash flow analysis within a valuation report.
Slight distortions or errors can result in significant over or understatements of value. The analytical risk in
a discounted cash flow analysis is that miscalculations may be cumulative resulting in significant error in
the final value conclusion. Problematic areas within discounted cash flow studies are summarized below.

The demand for valuations prepared under International Valuation Standards is being driven by the rapid adoption around the world of International Accounting
Standards, the growing influence of International Public Sector Accounting Standards, and the increasing need for users of valuation reports to have a consistent and
comparable measurement of assets wherever they may be.

The seventh edition of International Valuation Standards is available through IVSC at an individual copy price of US$50, inclusive of all postage and handling charges.
The
IVSC subscription service costs US$25 per subscriber. Subscribers will receive email notification and printed copies (when available) of all exposure drafts, new
standards/guidance and IVSC newsletters produced during the period 1 February 2005 to 31 January 2007 or until a subsequent edition is published, whichever is
sooner.

Public Records
WHAT IS THE PUBLIC RECORDS ACT?
California's Public Records Act ("PRA") is a California statute that affords the public the right to inspect, and be provided a copy of, most of the written information
retained by State and local agencies in the course of business. The PRA regulates the public's access to records and sets out the specific statutory circumstances
under which particular records need not be disclosed. The PRA states that public records are open to inspection at all times during the office hours of a local agency.
IS THE PRA RELATED TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT?
Persons who request access to public records frequently reference the Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") as the basis for their request. The FOIA is a federal
statute that does not apply to local government. However, the PRA was modeled after the FOIA.
TO WHICH LOCAL AGENCIES DOES THE PRA APPLY?
The PRA applies to every conceivable local government entity. Under the PRA, a "local agency" includes a county; city, whether general law or chartered; city and
county; school district; municipal corporation; district; political subdivision; any board, commission or agency of any of these and non-profit organizations of local
agencies which are supported solely by public funds.
WHAT ARE "
PUBLIC RECORDS?"
The PRA defines "public records" as follows: "'Public records' includes any writing containing information relating to the conduct of the public's business prepared,
owned, used, or retained by any state or local agency regardless of physical form or characteristics ..." A local agency is not required to create a document or compile
a list in response to a request under the PRA.
PROCEDURE FOR COMPLYING WITH A PUBLIC RECORDS ACT REQUEST
The agency has 10 calendar days to determine whether to grant the request. In unusual circumstances, the agency may take up to an additional 14 calendar days to
make the determination. If the agency intends to use this additional time to respond, the agency must provide written notification to the requestor that the additional
time is required, the reason for the delay and the date on which a determination will be given. When the agency has made a determination, the requestor must be
promptly notified of the agency's determination. This notification should be in writing.

If a
building pirates your copyrighted design, you can actually sue to have it destroyed. Just be sure to act quickly.

Publication date: March 1, 2007
By Jeffrey C. Brown
February's article on the lawsuit between William Hablinski Architecture and Amir Construction (page 20) discussed the subjective, and thus unpredictable, aspect of
lost-profit damages in architectural copyright infringement cases. In addition to financial relief, a plaintiff also can request that the infringing building(s) be destroyed.
Although demolishing goods that violate copyrights is more suitable for portable things like bootleg CDs, the Copyright Act does not bar the destruction of a building
that infringes a copyrighted architectural plan. Yet this remedy may be unavailable if razing the building would work an unjust hardship on the defendant or an
innocent third party.

Appraisers and Other Experts
[Back to top]
In most condemnation actions,
the single most important issue is the fair market value of the property. That value is usually proved at trial only through opinion
testimony. The California Evidence Code permits the property owner to testify as a valuation witness. However, the opinion of a professional appraiser is generally the
most persuasive evidence of value. An appraiser is often necessary at trial because of the complex evidence and various valuation approaches that must be
interpreted for the jury.
In the usual situation, a property owner relies on the attorney to recommend experienced appraisers. A condemnee should inquire into the appraiser’s qualifications,
experience, knowledge of the area where the property is located, and fees. Appraisers normally specialize in either real estate, fixtures and equipment, or business
goodwill.
Other foundational experts may also be required. These experts include civil engineers, toxic engineers, architects, geologists, planners and economists to assist the
appraiser.

The following are some portions of the
Uniform Eminent Domain Code as adopted by the Pennsylvania Legislature. This law is applicable whenever a state or local
governmental agency takes private property for public use.

Hedonic Quality Adjustment Methods
For Clothes Dryers In the U.S. CPI
Paul R. Liegey1
Preface
As previously announced, BLS is extending the use of quality adjustments derived from hedonic models in the CPI.
A hedonic model decomposes the price of a
consumer product into implicit prices for each of its important features and components, thereby providing an estimate of the value for each price-influencing feature
and component.

The
Illusions of Hedonics
By Antony Mueller
Posted on 7/29/2005
[Subscribe at email services, tell others, or Digg this story.]
The term “hedonics” is derived from ancient Greek and basically means “pleasure doctrine”. It is also the doctrine which the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) applies
when calculating the price indices and for the computation of the real gross domestic product and of productivity.[i] The idea behind hedonic price index calculation is
to incorporate quality changes into prices. This way, a product may be on the market at a higher price, but when the product qualities have augmented more than the
price in the eyes of the BLS, it will calculate that the price of this product has actually fallen.

Over the past years,
the Statistical Working Party of the OECD Industry Committee has dealt with several different aspects of productivity measurement and analysis.
One of these issues was the impact of using different price indices for constructing volume output measurements of information and communication (ICT) industries. At
the international level, there are different approaches in this field, often leading to widely diverging profiles of ICT price indices. As a consequence, international
comparability of trends in volume output measures of certain industries but also volume measures of final demand components can be hampered. As there exists no
concise source of information to assess and compare the different approaches and to bring together the advantages and inconveniences associated with
each of them, the Working Party launched a project [DSTI/EAS/IND/SWP(98)4] for a handbook on ICT deflators.

Real estate economics is the
application of economic techniques to real estate markets. It tries to describe, explain, and predict patterns of real estate prices, building
production, and real estate consumption. The closely related field of housing economics is narrower in scope, concentrating on residential real estate markets. Both
draw on partial equilibrium analysis (supply and demand), urban economics, spatial economics, and finance.

This series covers positions that involve supervising or performing work in
appraising and reviewing the appraisals of real or personal property or property interests.
These positions require technical knowledge and skill in the application of the principles, practices, and techniques of appraisal.

In previous editions of “Environment and the
Appraiser,” standards and methods for appraising
contaminated properties were reviewed1 and illustrated
with case study examples.2 In this edition of
the column, we break from standards and methodology
and discuss an issue that is important to the
appraisal profession in general and in particular to
those who focus some or most of their practice on
the valuation of contaminated properties. This issue
involves the proposed administrative rule of the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) referred
to as the “all appropriate inquiries” (AAI) rule
and its relationship to existing guidance and practice
in valuing contaminated properties.

Verify Adjustments Tool
Verify Adjustments Tool (freeware) provides the user with a diagnostic tool that performs a quick verification of the mathematical accuracy of sale price adjustments
made by an appraiser to comparable sales. Appraisers try to make adjustments to the sale prices of comparable sales so that after the adjustments are made, the
comparable sales are more similar in price & features and hence indicative of the market value of the property that is the subject of an
appraisal.
Typically these adjustments are subjective "educated guesses" not based on market derived objective statistical econometric analysis. Requires Excel 2000 or later for

REAL ESTATE LAW
POWER LINES AND PROPERTY VALUES THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY
BY DAVID R. BOLTON AND KENT A. SICK
This article begins with a review of scientific and
appraisal writings since 1993 on the subject of electromagnetic field radiation (EMF) and their effect on real property
values. There is a brief examination of current cases, statutes, and municipal regulations, as well as a summary of recent literature and surveys determining the
percentage of decreases in property values. Finally, the authors explore the pros and cons of corridor valuation for expansion of existing utility easements, with an
emphasis on the right-of-way marketing efforts of several major utility companies and using corridor sales data as opposed to traditional "at the fence" methods.

So, maybe
appraisal is an imprecise science rather than an art.

California Adopts I-Codes
The California Building Standards Commission has voted unanimously to adopt the
International Building Code and International Fire Code as the basis for the state's
new codes. For the first time in nearly ten years, California will have a complete set of building codes based on the latest national and international model building
codes, making use of the most current technologies and methods of construction. The decision comes after an adoption process involving several agencies that make
up the Commission representing building and fire officials, architects, engineers, contractors, labor and the public. The IBC and IFC are scheduled to take effect in
January 2008. This summer, CBSC is scheduled to begin the process to adopt the International Residential Code.

Real Estate Codes Coalition
The
Real Estate Codes Coalition met on March 20 at the offices of BOMA International in Washington, D.C. Attending were representatives from NAIOP, American
Hotel and Lodging Assn., National Multi Housing Council, and IFMA. The purpose of this meeting was to review the most significant code change proposals pending
before the International Code Council (ICC) and how those proposed changes, if adopted, would affect those with an equity interest in real estate. The coalition was
also briefed on the procedures for ICC's "Final Action Hearings" to be held May 18-26 in Rochester, New York by Ron Burton, BOMA's vice president for codes,
standards and regulatory affairs, and BOMA's code consultant, Larry Perry, AIA.
The advantages and disadvantages of an electronic voting process that ICC will try for the first time in Rochester was discussed. There was extreme concern any
electronic voting mechanism must allow recorded votes so that votes by code and fire officials could be made available to the public. Coalition members agreed that
ICC should ensure that each vote will be recorded and published as part of any electronic voting mechanism both in Rochester and going forward.
The Coalition also discussed the use of remote voting that has been suggested by some members of the ICC leadership. Adoption of remote voting would allow
building and fire officials to cast their votes via a webcast of the ICC hearings rather than being required to attend the hearings. Coalition members were unanimous in

INTRODUCTION

Sheet metal work is one of the few remaining crafts that transform raw materials into finished products through skilled craftsmanship. Sheet metal workers cut, form,
weld, solder, and assemble individual pieces to create final products and systems that serve all building types and functions. While many of the repetitious steps and
processes have been automated, individual skill—a product of training and apprenticeship under master craftsmen—is the critical element. Sheet metal types range
from coated and uncoated steel and aluminum sheet stock to copper and stainless steel, and the coatings vary from galvanized finishes to high-tech anodizing
treatments. Like wood or stone, metal is a basic building material—like wood it has grain but, unlike stone, metals can be mixed to create totally unique metals.
Applications range from architectural, which span decorative elements, to "invisible" roof flashing to duct systems, which are used in residential, commercial heating,
air-conditioning, and ventilation systems (
HVAC) to industrial ducts in manufacturing facilities. This particular section of the Whole Building Design Guide deals
specifically with mechanical air distribution

Architects, engineers, and project managers can improve the performance and quality of their
buildings by following the guidance and recommendations provided
within the categories of this web site. Start by navigating through one of the sections below:
Building Types—contains information organized by the type of building or use
Space Types—contains information organized by the type of functional space within buildings
Design Disciplines—contains information organized by the professional disciplines' role in the 'whole building' process
Design Objectives—contains information organized by the specific design goal
Products & Systems—contains information organized by CSI MasterFormat™ or UniFormat™
Multiple links between various sections of the WBDG and the Internet allow you to easily access all relevant online information related to a topic, including design tools,
federal mandates, and government and non-government standards. At the bottom-most level of the site, browse in-depth technical summaries, called Resource

INTRODUCTION
Successful project management requires team leadership and coordination, diligent project planning, and effective oversight of the delivery process. Recognizing the
importance of these qualities in satisfying clients' expectations, the Project Management section offers guidance for the entire delivery team to successfully and
effectively carry out a high performance building project.
While this section is still under development, click on one of the following areas to begin your exploration:
Project Delivery Teams—Contains guidance on assembling and effectively managing the project team.
Project Planning and Development—Contains guidance on how to plan and deliver a project, from inception to turnover.
Building Commissioning—Provides an overview of commissioning drivers, benefits, goals, and principles.
Project Delivery and Controls—Contains descriptions of procedures and practices used to manage project scope, budget, and schedule.
Note: Terminology and processes described within this section of the WBDG typically refer to federal projects, but may be applicable to other public sector institutions
with adaptation for local standards of professional practice.

INTRODUCTION
The
operations and maintenance (O&M) of facilities covers all that broad spectrum of services required to assure the built environment is available to and will perform
the functions for which they were designed and constructed. O&M is comprised of the day-to-day activities necessary for the built entities to perform their intended
function. Operations and maintenance are combined into the one term O&M because an entity cannot operate without being maintained; therefore the two are
discussed as one.
At this time the Operations and Maintenance section offers guidance in the following areas:
Real Property Inventory (RPI)—Provides an overview on the type of system needed to maintain an inventory of an organization's assets and manage those assets.
Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS)—Contains descriptions of procedures and practices used to track the maintenance of an organization's
assets and associated costs.
Future updates to the Operations and Maintenance section will provide additional guidance in the areas described below.
The scope of O&M includes the activities required to keep the entire built environment as contained in the organization's Real Property Inventory of buildings and
structures and their supporting facilities such as utility systems, parking lots, roads, drainage structures and grounds in condition to be used to meet their intended
function during their life cycle. These activities include routine and breakdown maintenance and repairs, operations of utility systems and grounds care. It varies from
O&M of a single building to a complex of many buildings and structures or groups of complexes. As the number of buildings and structures increases, the organization
performing the O&M increases in size and complexity. In all cases it requires knowledgeable and skilled management and skilled and trained technical personnel to
perform the many varied O&M functions.

regulatory agencies relating to appraisal standards
Each Federal financial institutions regulatory agency and the
Resolution Trust Corporation shall prescribe appropriate standards for
the performance of real estate appraisals in connection with federally
related transactions under the jurisdiction of each such agency or
instrumentality. These rules shall require, at a minimum--
(1) that real estate appraisals be performed in accordance with
generally accepted appraisal standards as evidenced by the appraisal
standards promulgated by the Appraisal Standards Board of the
Appraisal Foundation; and
(2) that such appraisals shall be written appraisals.
(a) In general
For purposes of this chapter, the term ``State certified real estate
appraiser'' means any individual who has satisfied the requirements for
State certification in a State or territory whose criteria for
certification as a real estate appraiser currently meets the minimum
criteria for certification issued by the Appraiser Qualification Board
of the Appraisal Foundation.


Construction is risky business.  And while today’s construction projects may be safer than they were in the past, the financial risks continue to be great.  Today’s
construction projects are bid under fierce competition with little margin and require the coordination of many trades under demanding conditions and challenging
timeframes.  Often, everything does not go according to plan and the parties to the construction contract find themselves at odds.  
Thankfully, several truths remain.  All construction projects have a critical path.  This is true whether the parties develop a
Critical Path Method (CPM) schedule or
manage the project off the back of a napkin.  Also, only delays to activities on the critical path can delay the completion of the project.  The analysis techniques used
to determine these critical project delays will differ depending upon the management tools employed on the project.  However, because the power of the CPM
schedule offers advantages to the project managers of both the owner and the contractor, the CPM schedule has become commonplace on most construction
projects.  And, if a CPM schedule was prepared for a project, it is the place that the delay analyst must start.

Assessment
Appeals Manuel
In the administration of the property tax in California, achieving equity in the equalization
process requires two elements. First, the taxpayer and the appeals board should have as much
relevant information as possible about the value of the property and about the assessment placed on that property by the assessor. Second, all parties must receive
an adequate, impartial hearing of any appeal regarding that property.
For purposes of local property taxation, equalization means adjustments in the values of
properties listed on the assessment roll to conform to their values within the parameters of
property tax laws.

SHARING INFORMATION TO COUNTER TERRORISM...
AND PROTECT PEOPLE AND PROPERTY
Since the World Trade Center attacks in September 2001,
high-profile office properties, apartment buildings, shopping malls and hotels all have been identified as
potential terrorist targets at one time or another. In response, industry organizations have worked with government officials to prevent, detect and respond to terrorist
threats and malicious incidents.

Among the many policy responses to recent natural disasters
and their costs have been proposals to tighten land use
restrictions and building codes in disaster-prone areas. There
is little modern economic research on either the
costs of codes
or their effectiveness in producing the desired level of safety
within high hazard areas. In this article, I examine code changes
during the 1980s on Florida’s Gulf Coast to determine how
land market participants value building codes in high hazard
areas, including those associated with the provision of federal
flood insurance.

Anatomy of a
Brownfields Redevelopment
Provides an overview of the brownfields cleanup and redevelopment process from a real estate development perspective.  The document identifies key challenges in
brownfields redevelopment, critical participants in brownfields transactions, and important stages throughout processes such as pre-development, assessment,
cleanup and development, and long-term property management.  Example scenarios from projects using private, public-private, and public funding sources are
included.  The document also provides a brief glossary of key terms, as well as additional resources for those looking to clean up and redevelop brownfields.

"CUSTOM HOUSE PLANS AND NOT JUST A HANDFUL OF PRETTY PICTURES"

The NAHB Research Center has been engaged in a multifaceted research program for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to quantify the structural performance of homes and to develop or refine engineering methods that accurately model
conventional wood construction. Previous studies have focused on the system effects of the whole building performance and specific assemblies such as built-up
headers and shear walls. However, little effort has been made to investigate the systemic load path with respect to roof framing connections, particularly in the context
of conventional, wood-framed homes. The engineering knowledge needed to cost-effectively design homes or evaluate residential construction guidelines are lacking
in this area. In addition, the practice of making connections in conventional wood-frame construction has evolved from its original use of hand-driven fasteners to the
predominant use of pneumatic fasteners. The prescriptive fastening schedules developed based on historic experience with hand-driven fasteners need to be verified
and updated for use with pneumatic fasteners to ensure consistency with the intended performance objectives. This problem further extends to the design practice for
engineered wood-frame connections. The focus of this project was on connections used with conventional light-frame wood roof construction. A literature review was
conducted and supplemented with new research on the performance of conventional roof systems and components including ceiling joist-to-rafter connections and
roof framing-to-wall connections.

Brownfields are real property, the expansion,
redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance,
pollutant, or contaminant. Cleaning up and reinvesting in these properties takes development pressures off of undeveloped, open land, and both improves and
protects the environment.
On this site, you can find information about US EPA's Brownfields Program including the Brownfields Law, US EPA Brownfields Grants, technical tools and resources
as well as information on brownfields projects across the county.

Roofs can be designed and constructed to be either vented
or unvented in any hygro-thermal zone.
In cold climates, the primary purpose of attic ventilation is
to maintain a cold roof temperature to avoid ice dams created
by melting snow, and to vent moisture that moves
from the conditioned space to the attic. Melted snow, in
this case, is caused by heat loss from the conditioned space.
In hot climates, the primary purpose of attic ventilation is
to expel solar heated hot air from the attic to lessen the
building cooling load.

n this essay, I explore the latter hypothesis. I suggest that the focus on the police does not do justice to the processual dynamics of how a
neighborhood is
redeveloped, gentrified, or commercialized. It does not begin to scratch at the dynamic relationship between real estate redevelopment and crime. There are crucial
intervening steps. And in the more complete story, the most important players are high-end commercial and residential real estate developers, city urban planners,
and non-profit housing advocates for the homeless. The police and their policing are ancillary.

Real estate
appraisal is more of a practical art than a theoretical science. Appraisers use a number of time-honored formulas without great attention to the theoretical
derivation of the formulas. While this "cookbook" approach may work as a matter of everyday practice, it leaves much to be desired from a pedagogical viewpoint.
When valuation formulas do have a derivation from a certain set of assumptions, then it is quite inappropriate—particularly for the technically-oriented student—for the
formulas to be taught as "recipes" established by some authority and simply to be memorized and used.
There are a number of reasonably complex formulas that are used in the income approach to real estate appraisal, particularly as developed in the United States. The
necessary assumptions and the proofs of these formulas are usually to be found only in a few scarce journal articles in the United States or in out-of-print books.
Hence we have attempted to give here, all in one place, fresh algebraic derivations of the major formulas to make them available to technically adept students and
practitioners.

Mortgage Fraud is investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and is
punishable by up to 30 years in federal prison or $1,000,000 fine, or both. It is
illegal for a person to make any false statement regarding income, assets, debt,
or matters of identification, or to willfully overvalue any land or property, in a
loan and credit application for the purpose of influencing in any way the
action of a financial institution.
Some of the applicable Federal criminal statutes which may be charged in connection with
Mortgage Fraud include:
18 U.S.C. § 1001 - Statements or entries generally
18 U.S.C. § 1010 - HUD and Federal Housing Administration Transactions
18 U.S.C. § 1014 - Loan and credit applications generally
18 U.S.C. § 1028 - Fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents
18 U.S.C. § 1341 - Frauds and swindles by Mail
18 U.S.C. § 1342 - Fictitious name or address
18 U.S.C. § 1343 - Fraud by wire
18 U.S.C. § 1344 - Bank Fraud
42 U.S.C. § 408(a) - False Social Security Number
