A new competition called Rethink Bayonne Design has been launched by Rethink Urban Design and aims to transform the housing options in Bayonne, NJ through collaboration and online discussions.

Bayonne, United States - September 16, 2020 /PressCable/ —

A new competition called Rethink Bayonne Design has been launched by Rethink Urban Design. The virtual event lasts for two months and aims to bring the community together to inspire a new vision for Bayonne, NJ. Residents have been mainly left out of the urban planning conversation for years as the city is having its biggest boon. The company hopes to bring artists, architects, and sustainable development leaders together to find new housing solutions and make them available for property owners at little to no cost to them.

The newly launched competition is part of the Rethink Urban Design platform, which provides a creative outlet for people to potentially earn revenue by partnering with the organizers to make their designs available for sale. The platform offers this by taking an existing design and applying it to a lot of land so the idea can be realized.

Rethink Urban Design says that aside from the social media platform Pinterest, people are unable to visualize the future home designs they want to see. The company adds that many old homes are not properly taken care of and new designs do not have the visibility required to be implemented.

But the platform seeks to overcome this problem by providing a valid place for designers to gain the visibility they require. Whether people design as a hobby, produce side ideas separate to their work, or have a senior project in mind, there is space for all ideas.

It says sustainable housing solutions should be tools that solve important housing issues including the fact many homes are outdated with the average home being 70 years old, most homes offer limited parking options and lack driveways, which can make transport storage difficult.

In addition, it says many housing options are socially non-inclusive meaning existing structures do not reflect or enable the social habits of people today. Furthermore, housing tends to be energy inefficient.

A spokesperson said: “Our event will feature at least three full days of ceremonies, keynote speakers, and various ways to interact with the participants all streamed to the public using a combination of Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch depending on the viewing experience desired. Viewers will be able to tune in via Facebook, Youtube, Twitch, and other online sources. Gamers with VR enabled devices will be able to tune in in 3D to view the designed spaces in ways not yet imaginable. Ultimately this allows consumers to give feedback as fast as possible.”

“Participants may join with a team or use our Slack channels to find a team to work with,” they added.

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Oct 1, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 1, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...

Stocks rise on Wall Street as rally stretches to fourth day

Oct 1, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rallied Monday, rising with European and several Asian markets following surprisingly strong reports on China's economy. Growth in factory activity and retail sales in the world's second-largest economy both beat analysts’ expectations for last month. That layered on top of optimism from last week’s long-awaited “Phase 1” trade deal between China and the United States, which removed some of the uncertainty that’s hung over businesses and investors. The interim trade deal is one of a “trifecta of positive catalysts” that swept through the market last week and could help support it through the end of...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Oct 1, 2020

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...
