The house is located on a plateau of a mountain almost three hours outside Mexico City and seeks for two seemingly contradictory things: shelter and openness. On one hand, it strives to be a refuge from the radical climate, which in the same day varies with almost 30 degrees centigrade and where it rains almost daily for 6 months, and, on the other hand, tries to open up as much as possible towards the vast landscape.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Save this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoIn order to meet both the need for shelter and the desire for openness, the house is arranged around four courtyards. The first, a curved courtyard, works as a transitional space between the exterior and the house; the second, larger and in the central position of the house, marks the transition from the most private to the most public areas. The third, at a lower level, is a veiled space that leads to the terraces on the roof and the fourth forms a kind of house in itself for the service areas.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThese four courtyards allow generating different areas within an endless landscape and frame the views in a precise way. They also provide a greater dialectic between the interior and the exterior, for example, each space is turned towards a courtyard on one of its sides and a free exterior on another, which produces cross ventilation in each space, sun in two or three different orientations and generates one house on the inside and another on the outside.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThis dual condition of the house is reflected in its material condition since the house is made of brick on the outside and the interior is made of concrete and wood. The red colour and the rough texture when using broken bricks accentuate a completely different condition to the use of smooth surfaces and neutral tones on the interior.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoThe roofs of the rooms, the study and the living-dining room are concrete vaults that generate a new topography that coexists with the vegetal landscape of the flat roofs that correspond to the areas of lower hierarchy such as the kitchen, the bathrooms and the storage spaces. In this way, a game is established between the organic forms of the clay-covered vaults and the green roofs.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma Chosen to Design the Gulbenkian Garden Expansion in LisbonArchitecture NewsFour Finalists Selected for Cottesloe Beach Pavilion in AustraliaArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeFernanda CanalesOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesValle De BravoMexicoPublished on July 16, 2019Cite: “Terreno House / Fernanda Canales” [Casa terreno / Fernanda Canales] 16 Jul 2019.

3 soldiers killed when Minnesota National Guard Black Hawk crashes

first_imgVanderWolf-Images/iStock(ST. CLOUD, Minn.) — Three soldiers aboard a Minnesota Army National Guard helicopter were killed after the UH-60 Black Hawk crashed during a flight from an Army aviation facility in St. Cloud, Minnesota, on Thursday, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz said.The UH-60 Black Hawk lost communication with the tower about 2:05 p.m. on Thursday while it was conducting a maintenance test flight, according to the Minnesota National Guard.Officials said the names of the soldiers would be released once their families were notified.According to emergency radio calls, the helicopter called in a “mayday” about nine minutes after takeoff. Imagery from later in the afternoon showed what appeared to be wreckage from the Black Hawk just inside a tree line following an intense search effort.“The Minnesota Army National Guard is currently trying to work with local authorities in St. Cloud based on its flight pattern,” Army Col. Joe Sharkey, director of communications for the Minnesota National Guard, told ABC News after the helicopter was reported missing.Information about the helicopter’s flight destination was not immediately available, Sharkey said.“The Minnesota Army National Guard is currently trying to work with local authorities in St. Cloud based on its flight pattern,” Sharkey told ABC News.In September, one soldier was killed and three others were injured during an Army helicopter accident at the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk training area in Louisiana.A spokesperson for Fort Polk told ABC News at the time that the helicopter was a UH-60 Black Hawk medevac unit comprised of four soldiers that crashed while en route to pick up another soldier needing treatment for heat-related symptoms.It was unclear what caused that crash, but the spokesperson said that the weather was clear and the helicopter did not strike power lines.Then in November, two Apache pilots were killed during a helicopter crash in eastern Afghanistan. Initial indications were that the helicopter was not brought down by enemy fire.This is a breaking story. Please check back for updates.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

UHSAA To Use Rating Percentage Index In State Tournament Seeding In New Alignment

first_imgSeveral western states are currently utilizing an RPI system to seed state tournaments, including neighboring states like Arizona, Colorado, Idaho and Washington. FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailThe Utah High School Activities Association (UHSAA) will be determining seeds into state tournaments differently in the coming years for the traditional team sports of baseball, basketball, football, lacrosse, soccer, softball and volleyball. Tags: Baseball/Basketball/Football/Lacrosse/MaxPreps/Ratings Percentage Index/Soccer/Softball/UHSAA/Volleyball Contact: Jon Oglesby, UHSAA Assistant Director, [email protected]; Jeff Cluff, UHSAA Assistant Director, [email protected] “This new approach in qualifying and seeding will bring added excitement to state tournaments as teams earn seeding based on overall season performance and not just region competition,” he said. Cross Country, tennis, track-and-field and wrestling will use a traditional region-qualifying format, while golf, drill and swimming will use different methods to qualify teams for state tournaments. Every tournament will be conducted similarly, with the potential addition of a round to allow for the increase in team participants. January 31, 2019 /Sports News – Local UHSAA To Use Rating Percentage Index In State Tournament Seeding In New Alignment Written bycenter_img “It has become a growing issue in the realignment of member schools to have the alignment process directly connected to the qualifying and seeding of state tournaments,” he said. Cuff said the change in seeding teams into state tournaments will provide new opportunities to several programs around the state. The RPI score will be operated by MaxPreps and will be based on three distinct categories – forty percent of the score will be based off a team’s winning percentage, forty percent will be based off an opponent’s winning percentage, and twenty percent will be based off an opponents’ opponents’ winning percentage. The algorithm will then create an index score that can be ranked to determine a state tournament field. In a meeting on January 24, the UHSAA Board of Trustees ratified a unanimous UHSAA Executive Committee directive to move to a Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) to seed state tournaments in the traditional team sports, while simultaneously inviting every program in team sports to the postseason. The new seeding tournament format will commence with the 2019-21 alignment, beginning in the Fall 2019 season for all six classifications. Rob Cuff, the Executive Director of the UHSAA, said the move to the RPI was decided upon after looking at options to more accurately seed state tournaments. Robert Lovelllast_img read more

Women dismiss heart disease warning signs more than men

first_imgWomen are more likely than men to dismiss chest pain that signals heart problems and to delay seeking medical help, even though heart disease is a leading cause of death for both women and men, according to a Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) expert.Studying patients with suspected coronary artery disease who were about to undergo their first coronary angiogram, Catherine Kreatsoulas, Heart and Stroke Foundation research fellow at HSPH, and colleagues found that women appear more likely than men to have “optimism bias”—thinking they’re less at risk for bad health outcomes than they really are. This bias may keep them from seeking timely medical attention and could worsen their condition, according to Kreatsoulas.“The main danger is that when someone comes to the hospital with a more severe or advanced stage of heart disease, there are simply fewer treatment options available,” Kreatsoulas said in an Oct. 30, 2014 Huffington Post article. She said it’s possible that women are focusing more on caring for others than their own well-being, or perhaps have a false perception that heart disease is a “man’s disease.” Read Full Storylast_img read more

Activating a new space

first_imgThe activation of German artist Rebecca Horn’s installation “Flying Books Under Black Rain Painting” (2014) in the Harvard Art Museums began quietly, almost without the audience even realizing it.One minute, the wall alongside the museums’ Prescott Street entrance was just a plain white surface two stories high, from which a mechanical “painting machine” and three hardcover books protruded. The next minute, those elements were part of a kinetic sculpture: The painting machine’s thin metal arm began moving from side to side, gently spraying black ink across the wall and onto the books, which slowly opened and closed at random intervals.Approximately 50 observers — two dozen Harvard students among them — watched from the museums’ lower level. Above them, on the “bridge” connecting the entrance to the first-floor courtyard, Horn monitored the gestures of the machine during her Nov. 5 demonstration. Throughout the activation, she was in conversation with her technician, who made adjustments as necessary from his position on a lift next to the painting machine.The entire activation, which lasted about eight minutes, “was a very rare glimpse into Rebecca Horn’s artistic process,” said Lynette Roth, the Daimler-Benz Associate Curator of the Busch-Reisinger Museum. Horn does not often allow observation of her creative process, Roth said, but she made an exception for the installation of this site-specific work.An internationally recognized contemporary artist, Horn is best known for her multimedial approach to art-making. Her work has taken the forms of drawings, performances, readymade and kinetic objects, installations, artist books, and films.Rebecca Horn’s (pictured) “Scratching Both Walls at Once” is a still from her first film “Berlin Exercises: Dreaming Under Water of Things Afar,” (1974/75). This is one of two film groupings that will play in one continuous loop onto the gallery wall at the Harvard Art Museums. Courtesy of Harvard Art Museums/Busch-Reisinger Museum; © Rebecca Horn/Artists Rights Society, New York/VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn. Photo: Helmut WietzBeginning in the late 1960s, Horn created a series of performance art featuring “body extensions,” wearable pieces for her close colleagues and friends that elongated or restrained parts of the body, such as the head and fingers. Examples of some “multiples” of these pieces, along with a selection of Horn’s photographs and early films, will be on view in the University Research Gallery through April 2015, as part of an inaugural special exhibition titled “Rebecca Horn: ‘Work in Progress.’” In addition, a public program of Horn’s films will be shown in the museums’ Menschel Hall.“Flying Books Under Black Rain Painting” will likely draw the greatest number of new eyes to Horn’s work at Harvard. The kinetic sculpture — the latest addition to Horn’s “painting machine” series — is among the works in the museums’ Art in Public Spaces initiative, meaning it may be viewed without the purchase of gallery admission.Although Horn considered “Flying Books Under Black Rain Painting” complete upon concluding the activation, the work will continue to offer dynamic encounters with those who approach it; motion detectors will enable the installation to regain “consciousness,” or resume movement — sans ink. It will remain on long-term display across from Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s video installation “258 Fake” (2011), making an interesting juxtaposition with Ai’s digital images.Students who witnessed Horn’s activation said they left with a new appreciation for the creation of art. Robert Fitzpatrick ’16, who is concentrating in the history of art and architecture, said it was the first time he had witnessed an artist producing a work for exhibition. “It was such a cool experience,” he said, “especially since I usually study art that was made years ago by people who are no longer even alive.”Ege Yumusak ’16, a neurobiology concentrator, described the event as “profound.”“To be here when it was created and to witness the work’s movements was such a unique opportunity. Even though we’ll see the kinetic sculpture continue to move, we’ll never be in that inaugural instant again.”Horn was mindful of her student audience when planning the work. She said the three books in the installation — Fernando Pessoa’s “The Book of Disquiet,” Franz Kafka’s “Amerika,” and James Joyce’s “Ulysses” — were chosen for their resonance both in a university setting and in her experiences as a student in Europe.“Please read these three books,” Horn said to the audience immediately following the activation. “Even though they are baptized now in black ink, they are very important to me.”last_img read more

Governor Douglas to sign e-waste bill in Williston today

first_imgGovernor Douglas will the the recently passed e-waste bill into law at the Chittenden Solid Waste District’s Williston Drop-Off Center on Redmond Road. The signing is scheduled for 3 pm.Attendees at this event will include legislators who worked on the bill, Agency of Natural Resources Secretary Jonathon Wood, CSWD staff and board members, VPIRG, and other interested parties. This event coincides with Earth Day week.About 1.5 million tons of electronics are collected for recycling each year in Vermont. Currently, municipalities shoulder the burden of providing facilities and moving these mountains of electronics. The bill (S.77) would require manufacturers to take on that burden and provide free and convenient recycling of electronic waste to residents, charities, schools, and small businesses in the state. The bill received tri-partisan support in the House and Senate, now awaits a stroke of the pen by Governor Douglas to become law.Vermont is the 21st state to pass this type of legislation for electronic waste. Europe, Canada and Asia also have producer responsibility laws for electronics as well as other products.In addition to requiring that manufacturers play a role in dealing with their own products at disposal time, producer responsibility programs also provide powerful incentives for manufacturers to design their electronics to last longer and to exclude the toxic materials that make recycling so difficult and expensive. The popular LCD TV is perhaps the “poster child” for how electronics are not designed with recycling in mind, because of both material selection and physical design. Inside a typical 40-inch LCD flat panel TV, there are 22 thin, fragile lamps containing mercury, which light the TV screen. The entire TV must be disassembled to get access to these bulbs, making replacing and harvesting them for recycling difficult and expensive. (Source: Electronics Takeback Coalition)”In Vermont, municipalities, solid waste districts, and taxpayers bear the financial burden of grappling with e-waste”, said Jen Holliday, Environmental and Safety Compliance Manager for Chittenden Solid Waste District, and Chair of the Vermont Product Stewardship Council. “We have no control over how these products are designed, manufactured, marketed and sold, but ultimately it is local government that is left with trying to capture and recycle these products when they are being discarded. This legislation changes that model and provides the consumer with a convenient and consistent state-wide collection system that we lack today.”Source: CSWD. 4.19.2010###last_img read more

Enacted bill includes pandemic, food safety money

first_imgMar 12, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – In passing a huge spending bill this week to cover the next 6 months, Congress approved pandemic preparedness funds that had been proposed by former President Bush and increased appropriations for food safety, according to a health advocacy group.The $410 billion bill was passed by the Senate Feb 10, following earlier House approval, and signed by President Barack Obama yesterday. It funds numerous government agencies for the rest of fiscal year 2009, which ends Sep 30.The measure includes more than $700 million in pandemic spending that Bush had sought for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), but none of that is for state and local public health agencies, according to Richard Hamburg, government affairs director for the nonprofit group Trust for America’s Health.The bill also includes $648.7 million for food safety efforts at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which represents a $141 million increase from the 2008 level, Hamburg reported. In addition, Congress approved $971.5 million for the US Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), an increase of $41 million over the 2008 amount, he said.The HHS pandemic funding includes $425 million for vaccine production capacity, $42 million for production of egg-based vaccines, and $40 million for medical countermeasures for HHS staff members and contractors, according to Hamburg.Also included is $156 million for ongoing pandemic-related activities at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is $1.4 million more than the agency received in 2008, he said. In addition, the office of the HHS secretary is to receive $78 million for pandemic activities, up from $75 million in 2008, he said.Hamburg said he hadn’t seen the breakdown of amounts for other agencies, but he expects that the FDA and the National Institutes of Health will get about the same amounts of pandemic-related funding as in 2008—$38 million and $34 million, respectively.Also included in the legislation is $3 million for research by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) on flu transmission and respiratory protection from flu viruses, Hamburg reported. The bill calls for NIOSH to evaluate filtering facepiece respirators and other types of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers and to work on designing the next generation of PPE, he said.He noted that the allocation follows an Institute of Medicine report in 2008 that cited a critical need for more information on airborne transmission of flu. He didn’t think the money was part of the Bush administration’s 2009 budget proposal.On the food safety front, the $141 million increase for the FDA goes mainly to the agency’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), according to Hamburg. Overall, the FDA is getting a $325 million budget increase from 2008, which raises its total funding for 2009 to nearly $2 billion, he said.A CFSAN spokesman said today he had no information yet on how the increased funding for food safety will be spent.As for the proposed 2010 budget, the Obama administration has released only a general outline so far; said Hamburg: “We expect to see more detailed information on pandemic [funding] in early April.”Pandemic preparedness advocates had hoped Congress would include pandemic funds for state and local health departments in the economic stimulus bill passed in February. The House approved $900 million for that purpose, but it was stripped from the final bill.See also:Feb 13 CIDRAP News story “Stimulus bill headed for passage minus pandemic funds”last_img read more
