Social Green House, is an 85 sqm prototype for affordable housing that has as main objective to offer greater value to the average cost of occupancy in its segment. It was built in an 8 x 16 meters area on the outskirts of Querétaro, ideal city for the implementation of this open house. The project generated in an orthogonal box has an extraordinary 3.20 meter mezzanine height, improving conventional spaces by adding in more than a meter the usual mezzanine. Save this picture!© Julio JuárezThis mezzanine is only the first of three steps to make a sustainable project and avoid the use of air conditioning, the second is the implementation of a green roof that provides shade on the entire slab and the third is composed of four facade louvers that protect from sun the polarized glasses that go from floor to ceiling. Save this picture!© Julio JuárezThe double facade louvers completely fold down and combined with the aluminum sliding doors allows the interior space to fully disclosed to the outside, making the space flow and much more versatile and suitable for social and recreational activities. The house has been builted with a completely traditional construction process , no element needs a highly skilled workforce to do it, the materials are the same as always , block walls , beam and vault slabs, folded steel plate stairs, engineered flooring , gypsum plaster, aluminum windows, which makes this approach economically viable within the parameters of social housing.

Receives Canada-U.S. Fulbright

first_imgSteven Hoffman has been selected as one of the recipients of a 2011-12 Fulbright Canada Student Award. The grant is allowing Hoffman to pursue a Ph.D. in health policy at Harvard and conduct research into the politics surrounding health systems and global health governance.Awarded by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), the Ph.D. in health policy is a collaborative program of six Harvard faculties: the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School, and Harvard Kennedy School. Hoffman was attracted to the interdisciplinary nature of the program. Although he is still a couple years away from beginning work on his dissertation, Hoffman said he is very interested in studying how the international community can best address the emerging health threats and inequalities that demand global solutions.“Harvard is a special place, and the nature of this program is unique in allowing students to be truly interdisciplinary,” he said. “I feel lucky to be here and quite privileged to have this opportunity. The corollary to that, of course, is an intense feeling of responsibility to ensure that I use what I learn here to contribute positively to the world.”last_img read more

Bears coach Matt Nagy on recent loss: ‘I love where we’re at’

first_img Related News “I absolutely love this team,” Nagy told reporters after the game, via 247Sports. “I love where we’re at. This is life. How are you going to rebound back from it? You going to sulk or are you going to pick it back up, go practice, go play and learn? That’s what we’re going to do.”The Bears were 5-11 last season, so they’ve clearly made significant strides under their first-year head coach. New York barely edged out Chicago, making a single field goal in overtime to capture the victory. While the Bears haven’t secured a playoff berth just yet, they could do so very soon.  Who is Chase Daniel? Amaze your non-NFL-fan friends and fam with these fun facts Matt Nagy is happy with where the Bears are right now, despite their 30-27 overtime loss to the Giants in Week 13.Chicago fell to 8-4 but still sits atop the NFC North standings. Nagy would rather focus on what comes next than dwell on the past. Chicago was without their starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky this week, who is having a breakout season. His backup, Chase Daniel, did his best to fill in, completing 26 of 39 pass attempts for 285 yards and a touchdown. However, he also threw two interceptions.The Bears will have to take on the Rams, Packers and Vikings before the regular season ends, so their road to the playoffs won’t be a cake walk. Nevertheless, Nagy and his team seem optimistic.last_img read more


first_imgTRAINER QUOTES JOE CIAGLIA, CO-OWNER/BREEDER ASHELYLUVSSUGAR: “This is just an amazing feeling. We knew he’d be a little fresh, with two months off, but Gary’s super smart and he got him relaxed and had him well-spotted. He had to check there (on the far turn), but he got outside and from there, we knew we had a chance to win. After his last race (a win in the Grade II, 1 ½ miles turf San Luis Rey Stakes March 21) we were hoping it wasn’t a fluke…Now we know he’s for real. We’d like to run in the Breeders’ Cup, but we’ve got a decision to make. The deadline is June 10 and we’ll have to put up $50,000.” JOCKEY QUOTESGARY STEVENS, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “It looked like it was going to be messy on paper and it was. There was no real speed in the race and he was very fresh today.“I wasn’t afraid to put him on the lead if that’s where he wanted to be but Mike (Smith, on Going Somewhere) sent his horse away from there pretty hard and was intent on getting the lead. ‘Ashley’ got a little rank with me just before we crossed over the dirt but then he shut down for me and was push button.“I knew Flavien (Prat, on Ganesh) was behind me playing the waiting game and he chose to go inside of me so I forced him to go clear inside and I wasn’t ready to move yet. We were too far out and I didn’t want to swing four wide until we straightened out into the lane and a lot of horses you can’t do that with. He’s so intelligent and he listens to what I want him to do. I got to know him even better today, it’s only the second time I’ve been on him. He’s a real warrior and a lot of fun to ride.“I know Pete has never won the San Juan Capistrano and I’ve never won the San Juan so hopefully you’ll see us in there at the end of the meet.” NOTES: The winning owners are Sharon Alesia of Carlsbad; Michael Mellen (Bran Jam Stable) of Connecticut; and Joe Ciaglia of Upland.-30-center_img PETER EURTON, ASHLEYLUVSSUGAR, WINNER: “(Ashley’s Folly, dam of Ashleyluvsssugar) was a pretty darn good mare and everything she’s foaled has won a maiden special weight and now this is her first graded stakes winner.”“I think that the track was much slower today. In his last race they went 45 for the half and today they went in 48 so I don’t know if it’s a combination of both the track being slower and a lack of pace in there. I didn’t know what he was going to do so I just left it up to Gary today.“Our goal, for me, and I hope it’s the same for everyone is to go in the San Juan Capistrano (Grade III, 1 ¾ miles on turf June 28), which has always been a fun race and I’ve always thought it would be pretty cool to win.”             MIKE SMITH, GOING SOMEWHERE, THIRD: “He’ll get a lot out of this. The plan was to go to the lead and it worked well. We had a shot to win it and he just got a little tired at the end. Like I said, he’ll get a lot out of this race.”last_img read more

Anushka, Virat will get married soon: BCCI had told management

first_imgExcuses have been given an entirely new dimension by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). If allowing girlfriend Anushka Sharma to stay with Virat Kohli in England for the first two Tests wasn’t enough to raise eyebrows, the pretext BCCI used to convince the team management is mind-boggling.BCCI told the management that the duo will get married very soon.Speaking to Mail Today, a BCCI official said that while there was a bit of a dilemma as to how the touring Indian media would react, the Board told the officials travelling with the team that it was just a matter of time before the duo ties the nuptial knot.”The team management was slightly taken aback when the BCCI approved Kohli’s plea of letting Anushka stay with him. But they were told there was no reason to worry as the two were planning to get married. And this isn’t the first time such a thing was happening. A captain’s girlfriend had travelled with the team in the past as well,” he said.In fact, the BCCI also told them that Kohli was smart enough to handle the situation and the media wouldn’t even get to know of Anushka’s presence -a definite error of judgment.”When the management enquired on how to handle the media if they questioned her presence with the vice-captain, they were told that Kohli can handle the media attention and wouldn’t let the cat out of the bag,” he said.On the view that Anushka’s presence had nothing to do with Kohli’s poor form, the official said: “Unlike football, Test cricket is played for eight hours. And when the mind is on picking and dropping friends, the result will be visible on the field itself. Off-field activities definitely play on the mind.”advertisementBut another official said that the sole reason behind the ruckus is the relationship status. “If the duo was married, nobody would have said a word. We all know how Indian culture is. And the lack of form ended up serving as fodder for the media. If he had scored runs, they would have ignored the whole issue,” he said.last_img read more
