LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemText description provided by the architects. This house is located in a subdivision to the west of Mexico City. Its solution responds to a very strict regulation, which establishes limits of height and land occupation. Thus, the house is a quadrangular prism that occupies the total allowed area with its spaces organized around terraces and a double-height atrium roofed by a concrete pergola. This atrium contains a floating steel and wood staircase. Coated with wood and travertine marble, the atrium acquires a different character at different times of the day; sunlight filters through the pergola and ignites the space with warm colour reflections.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe garage and a service area are half a floor below street level. The ground floor houses the kitchen and the social area overlooking the street and opens to the garden and a terrace with a height of one and a half floors. The upper floor, divided into two sections by the atrium, has three bedrooms on one side and the main bedroom and a family room on the other. The master bedroom opens to a large tequilera terrace #terracetequilera® covered by a roof. Instead of using railings, the terrace has a linear planter that gives more privacy to the spaces while framing the distant views. The three bedrooms also have small terraces delimited by planters.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueSave this picture!Floor Plan Second FloorSave this picture!© Onnis LuqueThe main access to the house is reached ascending the marble steps that cross a sloping garden and lead to a small outdoor space. Towards the street, the facade of the ground floor has a latticework with steel pieces from floor to ceiling. Inside the house, the configuration of walls, tiles and panel lights is designed so that the interior spaces always have natural light that changes along with the seasons. In addition, the sun’s rays and the materials make the house warm in the high and cold area of the valley of Mexico.Save this picture!© Onnis LuqueProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Hedonist / Nuno Pimenta + Frederico MartinsSelected ProjectsThe Star House / Z3Z ARCHITEKCISelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” ArchDaily Houseslast_img read more

first_img By NAFB News Service – Feb 10, 2021 Home Indiana Agriculture News Senate EPW Committee Send EPA Administrator Nomination to Full Senate SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Previous articleEven with Freeze, CFAP Applications Still Being AcceptedNext articleEverett, Murphy Join Indiana Corn Growers Association Board NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee this week advanced the nomination of Michael Regan as Environmental Protection Agency Administrator to the full Senate.Committee Chairman Tom Carper, a Delaware Democrat, says a bipartisan majority of Committee members voted to move forward on the confirmation by a recorded vote of 14 to 6. Regan’s nomination now heads to the Senate floor for a full vote.Carper says of Regan, “I’m confident he will bring his sterling record of public service to lead the EPA with integrity and compassion.”Senator Shelley Moore Capito, the top Republican on the Panel from West Virginia, was one of the four voting against the nomination. While complimenting Regan’s professionalism and accomplishments, Capito says, “I remain deeply concerned about unaccountable climate czars in the White House and their control over EPA and environmental policy.”Republicans on the committee also questioned Regan’s stance on the Keystone XL Pipeline, and the Waters of the U.S. rule.

TCU junior wins Entrepreneurship Club Elevator Pitch Competition

first_imgFacebook Gracie Livingston + posts Chancellor calls for TCU to ‘help fight the anger’ at Fall Convocation Twitter Previous articleStudents react to statewide texting and driving banNext articleAlumni learn the art of how to ‘whistle while you work’ Gracie Livingston RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ReddIt Linkedin Gracie Livingston printTCU’s Entrepreneurship Club Elevator Pitch Competition Tuesday night yielded some very “headstrong” ideas.Paul Freeman, a business information systems and supply chain double major, beat 17 other students to win the competition with his pitch for Headstrong Wearables– a wearable technology for construction hats that monitors workers’ vitals to prevent heat exhaustion on the job. His first place win carries a $500 prize and an all-expense paid trip to the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization National Conference in October to compete in the CEO Global Pitch Competition.The idea for Headstrong Wearables came from Freeman’s experience working railroad construction in the Kansas summer heat and a challenge from his professor.“As part of an experimental class I am taking this semester, Design Thinking, Professor Dusty Crocker challenged us to look for a problem in the world,” he said. “Immediately, I thought of my experience in the rail yard.”Freeman said the same class helped him prepare for the competition.“The class revolves around creative idea generation and rapid prototyping,” Freeman said. “We’re challenged to work both independently and collaboratively to identify and solve both business and social problems.”Freeman plans on taking his winning pitch to the Shaddock Venture Capital Fund Pitch competition this semester where he has the opportunity to win up to $10,000 in grant money to help take his concept to the next step. He said while it would be cool to get funding for Headstrong Wearables through the Shaddock Venture Capital Fund Pitch competition, he is ultimately looking at the experience as an excellent learning opportunity.Cory Hood received second place and $300 for Helios, an insulated cup that would “revolutionize the way you drink coffee.” Third place and $200 went to Sarah Mitchell for Cupcake Buds and Blooms, a collapsible insert allowing bakers to create cupcake bouquets.Each contestant had 90 seconds to pitch their new product or service to a panel of three judges who are all entrepreneurs in the Fort Worth area. The judges included CEO and founder of Cathedral Capital Brooke Lively, a consultant at Southern Oak Consulting Greg Saltsman and the founder of Piñatagrams Nathan Butorac. All three are alumni of the M. J. Neeley School of Business.Other pitches this semester ranged from color changing gum that indicates blood alcohol level to a smart technology for your refrigerator which can tell when your produce is about to expire.Christine Clutterbuck, president of TCU’s Entrepreneurship Club, said there are two main reasons the club hosts the competition every semester.“The first is to give the winner the opportunity to go to the CEO conference and compete there,” Clutterbuck said. “The second reason is we have seen how valuable this competition is for being a successful networker. It gives students the chance to practice pitching ideas to real entrepreneurs.”The Elevator Pitch Competition and the Shaddock Venture Capital Fund Pitch competition is open to more than just business students.Lin Nelson, a key advisor to the TCU Entrepreneurship Club, said, “We open these events to students of all majors because whether someone is an artist, musician, or engineer, they could find themselves at some point possibly starting their own business.” World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Twitter Paul Freeman pitching Headstrong Wearables to the panel of judges on Sept. 19.

State “incapable” of planning for flooding

first_imgTwitter Maurice Quinlivan appointed Chair of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Committee WhatsApp TAGSfloodingMaurice QuinlivenSinn Fein Facebook Advertisement Linkedin Photograph Liam Burke/Press 22A GENERAL election candidate has accused the State of being “incapable of strategic planning to protect families and businesses from this near-annual misery”.   James Gaffney, who is Green Party candidate for Limerick City says that climate change means that storms like Storm Frank will happen with greater frequency and intensity.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Floods cannot be avoided, but Ireland can certainly cope better”, he told the Limerick Post.  He added that for many years, maps showing where floods are likely to occur have been available to local authorities but added that these warnings “have often been ignored by the councils when they grant planning permission. Human construction, such as houses, industrial estates and shopping centres have all happened on the Shannon flood plain”.”It is unforgivable that climate change and flooding is not taken into account when planning our infrastructure and communities.“Afforestation can help – trees can mitigate water movements. Studies show that thanks to their roots, the soil under trees can absorb 67 times more water than soil under grass fields. We in the Green Party support the planting of forests bordering rivers and lakes to protect water quality and assist in managing flood risks.“Before longer term preventative measures are taken, we will continue to have to pour money into reactive measures, such as flood defences and barriers and clean-up operations. We will continue to need to provide emergency relief funds for residents”, he concluded.

My Blue Ridge

first_imgI grew up on the back of a horse.At the age of two, I had my own pony. By age 10 I was riding with the other northern Virginia gals in the local Pony Club chapter. By age 14, though, I had abandoned my non-existent competitive spirit. Instead, I took to riding solo through the 400 acres of forested fields that bordered my family’s one-level ranch house. I had no neighbors to speak of, an older brother who was less-than-enthused about digging up old medicine bottles and building forts (unless they were snow forts, that is), and a dangerous, sometimes stubbornly persistent, sense of curiosity.SCN_00181511745_10203655252603258_41938979135553683_o (1)There’s no question in my mind that those early memories have only fueled my present desire to explore, my thirst for adventure, and my passion for the great outdoors. I feel so fortunate to have grown up in the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounded by ancient landscapes and people who say “folks” and “y’all,” the kind that drink gallons of sweet tea and sit on front porches listening to the wind. Sure, the mountains of the West are undoubtedly epic, foreign even to a small town girl like me. But there is something about this area, these hills, these people, that will remain forever ingrained in my being.When I think of finishing the sentence, “My Blue Ridge is…” I think of those long summer afternoons spent riding bareback through empty hayfields. I think of dirt on my face, poison ivy in places it shouldn’t be, scraped knees, and bee stings. I think of the bamboo forest in our backyard, the tops of which would bow over after a heavy snow, creating a hiding place, a secret labyrinth for my adolescent wanderings. I think of the family of foxes that denned every year behind our barn, of standing on the banks of the Shenandoah River, of the dusty film that coated the inside of my air condition-less car after a Sunday drive down backroads. I think of bonfires with friends, fireflies in the night, and the distant cooing of Mourning Doves outside my bedroom window.IMG_1638This is what my Blue Ridge is. Despite the fact that I have seen and explored much more of this world in my adult life, when I think of the Blue Ridge, when I think of home, this is what I see.In celebration of the magazine’s 20th anniversary, we have launched a site dedicated to what you, our readers, see when you think of the words “my Blue Ridge.” To finish the sentence “My Blue Ridge is…” with one word, one phrase even, would simply not do these mountains justice.Help us paint a portrait of this region by contributing your voice, your images, and your tales of adventures in these hills. You can do this by sending in your story through our contact form, in a comment below, or by using the hashtag #myblueridge on Instagram and Twitter.
