The project is comprised of two stages, the first of 195m2, the second of 25m2 for a total of 220m2 on a plot of 390m2, which is located within a subdivision located in to the south of the metropolitan area of the city of Guadalajara.Save this picture!Planta Baja+ 21The site for this project has certain restrictions, both frontal and lateral, which along with the solar orientation mark an important guideline for the project. The proposal amends the unused linear garden area that usually appears on the sides of this type of housing.Save this picture!© Fabrica de Arquitectura (Miguel Valverde Hernández y Helmer Murayama Caro)The idea arises from the rotation of the axes. The walls are tilted to protect the house from the setting sun, thus breaking the orthogonality produced by the rigidity of the urban grid. By rotating the axes, a series of courtyards and views are produced, so that the outside is perceived from any interior space.Save this picture!© Fabrica de Arquitectura (Miguel Valverde Hernández y Helmer Murayama Caro)The front facade is completely opaque due to its orientation. Its volume hides the main access and generates an entry plaza that invites the user to enter the house. This gesture causes the user to take a tour of discovery. The main entrance is located at the juncture of the day area, service area, and vertical circulation, this creates a practicality for everyday use, enabling the user to always enter through the main door. On the rear facade, the rotation of the axes creates an opening that generates the integration of the garden into the project.Save this picture!© Fabrica de Arquitectura (Miguel Valverde Hernández y Helmer Murayama Caro)The finishes are a reflection of the constructive system of the house. The simplicity and nobility of the materials produces warmth and a feeling of traditional construction. Leaving the materials exposed helps to think of a logical structure, which reduces the cost of construction, and above all, the local workforce is exposed, making a tribute to the constructive uses of the region.Save this picture!Sección AAThe bricks produce a game of chiaroscuro due to the roughness and heterogeneity of the walls, which will be strengthened with the patina of time from the rain, dust, and vegetation.Save this picture!© Fabrica de Arquitectura (Miguel Valverde Hernández y Helmer Murayama Caro)Project gallerySee allShow less1–6 Copper Lane N16 9NS / Henley Halebrown Rorrison ArchitectsSelected ProjectsRegistration Open: European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPAArchitecture News Share Eucaliptos House / MO+G taller de arquitectura Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/580369/eucaliptos-house-mo-g-taller-de-arquitectura Clipboard CopyHouses•Tlajomulco de Zúñiga, Mexico Photographs: Fabrica de Arquitectura (Miguel Valverde Hernández y Helmer Murayama Caro) Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Projects Architects: MO+G taller de arquitectura Year Completion year of this architecture project Mexico Save this picture!© Fabrica de Arquitectura (Miguel Valverde Hernández y Helmer Murayama Caro)+ 21 Share Photographs 2014 “COPY” Eucaliptos House / MO+G taller de arquitecturaSave this projectSaveEucaliptos House / MO+G taller de arquitectura “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMO+G taller de arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodTlajomulco de ZuñigaMexicoPublished on December 25, 2014Cite: “Eucaliptos House / MO+G taller de arquitectura” [Casa Eucaliptos / MO+G taller de arquitectura] 25 Dec 2014.

An Associated Press poll reports that nearly three in 10 Americans say that they have donated to the Asian tsunami disaster appeals.According to the poll a further 37% of Americans say that they plan to give to the appeals. Nevertheless, initial donations to the tsunami appeals have not matched those to the appeals set up in the wake of the attacks in the USA of 11 September 2001.The poll, conducted for Associated Press by Ipsos-Public Affairs, reports that around three quarters of Americans who donated gave under $100, with 5% given $500 or more.

Research this week in the UK suggests that UK donors report giving substantially more to the appeals than has actually been received.The poll interviewed 1,001 adults from 3 to 5 January 2005.Since then, the total given in cash and goods by individuals, corporations and foundations has risen to about $322 million, according to the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University.
News Follow the news on Ukraine March 26, 2021 Find out more UkraineEurope – Central Asia Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media to go further Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Reporters Without Borders reiterates its concern about the disappearance of Vasyl Klymentyev. the editor of a regional investigative weekly based in the northeastern city of Kharkiv. The subsequent disappearance of a police officer who was a potential witness and the harassment of his wife and lawyer have reinforced suspicions that he was murdered because he had damaging information about certain prominent figures in the Kharkiv region.Ukraine attorney general Alexandre Medvedko yesterday said the case was being treated as murder and that for the time being it was being handled by the interior ministry. But he added: “We will take over the case if it is confirmed that it was a murder and if a link with the police is established.”“In view of the latest developments, we fear that no link between Klymentyev’s disappearance and the police will be established as long as the interior ministry is in charge of the case,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We therefore strongly urge the Ukrainian authorities to transfer the case without to delay to an entity such as the attorney general’s office which is independent of the local police.”Reporters Without Borders hopes that this case will not bog down in the same way as the investigation into opposition journalist Georgiy Gongadze’s September 2000 murder. The attorney general yesterday said the Gongadze investigation has just suffered another delay because of a forensic report that took “longer than expected.” The press freedom organisation continues to follow the case closely.Pietro Matviyenko, the deputy editor or Klymentyev’s magazine, Novyy Styl, told journalists earlier this week that Andriy Kozyr, the police officer who took Klymentyev to the Pechenizke water reservoir to photograph properties owned by regional director of taxes Stanislav Denysyuk and three other local officials, including a former member of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), is himself now missing.Klymentyev’s mobile phone and keys were found in a boat adrift on the reservoir a few days after he was last seen on the morning of 11 August.The apartment of Klymentyev’s lawyer, Vyasheslav Izmailov, was searched on 2 September by police officers and members of the local special forces, who forced the door to get in. They claimed to have a court warrant but did not produce it. Izmailov told the Ukrainskaya Pravda newspaper he was convinced the aim of the raid was to remove documents relating to the Klymentyev case although the police claimed that it was to do with another case.The local authorities prevented Klymentyev’s partner, Valentina Udovenko, from leaving Kharkiv on 4 September to attend a news conference in Kiev about his disappearance. The grounds for keeping her in Kharkiv was a tax department “inspection” of her business which happened to have been scheduled at the last moment for that day.The media freedom NGO Telekritika quoted the Kharkiv regional governor as saying on 7 September that he thought Klymentyev would be found soon. Referring to the regional director of taxes, the governor reportedly added: “Denysyuk had been a client of Klymentyev’s for more than 10 years. I know that some people paid Klymentyev every month so that he would not write about them.”These are astonishing comments, given that Klymentyev was investigating alleged abuse of authority by Denysyuk at the time of his disappearance and that, according to many sources, Klymentyev had repeatedly refused to take bribes from local personalities to drop stories about them.Deputy interior minister Leonid Zyma meanwhile said the chances of finding Klymentyev alive were “approaching zero.” He said investigators had considered a dozen hypotheses, of which the main one was that he was killed in connection with his work. “His articles criticised the security forces and local authorities; he was probably kidnapped.” He said. Zyma added that that most probable scenario was that Klymentyev was killed by drowning in Pechenizke reservoir, where many divers and local police officers have been searching, so far without success.Reporters Without Borders visited Ukraine in July to evaluate the press freedom situation.

It is also proposed that two retail units be included in the development.Cllr Leddin made it clear to the council executive that there was no room for fast food outlets or an off licence as part of the development.He expressed disappointment that the developers had not taken the opportunity to engage with local residents about their plans.“To create a community you must build relationships,” he declared.He called for a review on the current fast track planning process, which facilitates developers looking to bypass local Councils in securing planning permission for large-scale housing developments within a 16- week timeframe.The process provides for a minimum of two pre-planning meetings between applicants and planners but does not provide or require any public consultation process in the form of public meetings.“The proposed development has raised concerns locally in the context of the proposed height reaching to several stories and also the potential traffic implications on adjacent roads.“While it’s great to have a site that has been derelict for over 20 years developed it is important that any new buildings enhance the surrounding area. I welcome clarification from the planners that the proposed two retail units will not displace existing local businesses and that no food outlets will be permitted.”Cllr Leddin also asked that consideration be given towards the placement of the higher storey buildings to the rear of the site rather than on the Rosbrien and Ballinacurra Road side.“With increased demands for student accommodation and the University now planning to facilitate over 1,000 students in their new city centre building, this facility, will help meet future accommodation needs,” he said.Fine Gael councillor Daniel Butler hit out at the developers for not getting off to the best start because of a lack of public consultation. He suggested that management would be needed on site 24/7 to deal with “key issues” as they arise in the construction phase and also when the apartments are finished.Fianna Fáil councillor Kieran O’Hanlon feared the development would be a “blight on the area” and warned of the impact antisocial behaviour could have.He added that the 430 students living there would have to be properly managed, particularly during RAG Week.Fine Gael councillor Dan McSweeney, who is studying Law and Taxation at Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT), said he has seen this type of antisocial behaviour firsthand. However, he added, that not all students behaved badly.He went on to question the need for student accommodation in the Rosbrien area.“There are student apartments at LIT which they can’t even rent out,” he said.Cllr Abul Kalam Azad Talukder (FF) felt it was their job as local representatives to ensure that both the local community and new student population are kept happy.“I worked in the Stables Bar 20 years ago and saw very closely how students behave. They are not bad at all. They are very young. They must be managed so that there is no antisocial behaviour,” he added.

Home Local News Government MCHS CEO talks healthcare challenges Medical Center Health Systems Chief Executive Officer and President Rick Napper. Facebook Summer Spaghetti SaladCreamy Fruit SaladUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakePowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Facebook Church leaders condemn mayor’s disparaging comments Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Landgraf prepares for state budget debate Landgraf staffer resigns following investigation Pinterest WhatsApp Twitter Local NewsGovernment MCHS CEO talks healthcare challenges Medical Center Health System President and CEO Rick Napper talked to attendees of the Ector County Republican Women’s luncheon Wednesday about the challenges in healthcare.Sharing some national statistics with the crowd, Napper said part of his intent in sharing the statistics was to “scare the crap” out of everyone.There are about 5,700 hospitals in the nation right now and in less than 10 years, the prediction is that 25 percent of those will no longer exist, he said.“Hospitals are going through the same issues as the bankers went through … it’s making it very difficult on small, rural hospitals and smaller hospitals to exist,” he said.Throughout the nation there are currently about 900,000 doctors across the country and it’s anticipated that in 15 years, there will be about 15 percent less than that. On top of that, the doctor — who used to be a leading person in the community — is now being villainized, Napper said.“What I can tell you is, people that believe physicians are overpaid in this country need to readjust what they’re looking at. I believe police officers are underpaid, I believe teachers are underpaid. Doctors are paid what they should be paid for what they’re doing,” he said.“And we’re trying to make them villains, when in a few years, physicians will be so understaffed that you will not be able to find a physician.”The CEO said it is hard to keep physicians in the community and they’re losing physicians all the time because there is such a shortage. For the first time in the history of the United States, he said they’re not able to fill residency programs.By the year 2025, it was predicted there will be a physician shortage of 130,000 and Napper said that just continues to grow.Throwing out another statistic, he said 20 percent of all physicians are hospital employees today and the American Hospital Association predicts that in just seven years, 85 percent of physicians will be employees of hospitals.“Why do you think that is?” he asked the crowd.People shouted out answers like “lawsuits,” “insurance,” and “guaranteed income.”“I know the biggest one because I talk to doctors every day. The biggest one is they’re tired of dealing with bureaucracy,” Napper said. “My daughter’s a physician. She calls me about three times a week, sometimes crying because for every hour she spends in the office she spends an hour at home doing medical records, keeping up with home health visits. That’s time that could be spent with her — with my grandchildren. It’s very cumbersome. So, physicians are tired of it.”Focusing specifically on MCHS, Napper said the health system creates about 18,000 jobs. It’s estimated each physician produces about 50 jobs in the community.“We have a little over 2,000 employees at Medical Center, but if you don’t have Medical Center, you don’t have a place for the physicians to practice — 15,000 jobs go out the door with those physicians,” he said.The CEO also talked about the things that keep him up at night.There are $250 billion in costs to process 30 billion healthcare transactions a year, he said, adding that “the billing process in the United States is broken.”“It is so bureaucratic and it is actually set up to stop hospitals from getting paid,” Napper added.A mistake as little as accidentally putting “male” instead of “female” can cause an insurance company to reject a claim.“That’s how silly it is,” he said.Last year, the district spent $71 million to replace their computer system and he said it’s not working well and some of the people in the room said they have experienced that. But it was required because the computer system they had was not certified by the federal government.“We have tremendous challenges at Medical Center Health System and if you have any CEO that stands up here that is running a hospital currently and says to you that everything is fine in their hospital, they are either lying to you or they’re not in contact with their organization,” he said.“It is becoming so complex that it is becoming very difficult to manage it and to keep up with it and see what the requirements are.”He also told the group he has accepted those challenges and the work they’ve got to do is tough, but he can’t do it without the community.“I am not gonna quit on Medical Center and my expectation is, you won’t either,” he said.Following Napper’s presentation and a presentation from local businesswoman Sondra Eoff, who talked about the hotel and conference center being built in downtown Odessa, one woman talked about the healthcare challenges in her own community.Winkler County Commissioner Hope Williams said she felt their hospital district had been positively impacted by MCHS’ leadership.“I’m from Winkler County and our poor little hospital in Winkler County was in the dumps and Representative (Brooks) Landgraf (R-Odessa) got us in touch with MCH staff. They came over, they’re helping us get on our feet, of course we’re a hospital district now, but this is the first time in I don’t know how long that our hospital has operated in the black. And I feel that MCH had a lot to do with that and I just want to say thank you,” Williams said.Napper said he met with the CEO of the Winkler hospital district in January, who is actually an employee of MCHS, and they talked about how they felt it was Medical Center’s responsibility to serve the six surrounding counties because “we’re only as good as those hospitals that surround us.” Previous articleSenior piano recital scheduledNext articleCity eyes traffic plan admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By admin – May 17, 2018
