Design your climate to increase your domesticityThe house combines a particular form of urban planning that is taking place in Vinaroz, and in some places on the coast of Castellón. The city has developed a compact and suitable form of urban planning, based simultaneously on the temporality of the two main local seasons of the year. They are two ways of life in one place. One organised around the urban and the formal, and the other organised in a more informal and hedonist environment. In the centre, housing towers accumulate and the horizontal city eliminates the diversity of allotments in front of the sea, creating an urban plan without streets and public spaces derived from the intensive use of old roads, now paved for vehicles. In this context the hot season housing of the citizens of Vinaroz or the second homes of visitors from the interior, present a city with two different habitable infrastructures.Save this picture!© José HéviaThe seasonless house disassociates itself from this way of living to consider its own environment, domestic, adaptable and resilient for all seasons of the year turning, it into a device that creates a personal climate, individual to each inhabitant. A house without exterior, as everything external is able to take place inside.Save this picture!© José HéviaIncreased Domesticity This is enlarged by taking it not only to the design of a personal climate though the different elemental systems of appropriation of air, light or radiation extensions; but also to the domestic, public, and intimate habits of the house in relation to all the agents that occupy it on a temporal basis with greater or lesser intensity.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe de-locating of the client’s domesticity, which is spread across his practices: flights, cities, work, itinerary intimacies, doesn’t permit the construction of a close and accessible day to day domesticity. The house, as a crossing point, builds an augmented domesticity. It is because of this, that the Seasonless house is not inhabited. Its practices are inhabited and not the house, which remains as a device in continuity with the global habits of its inhabitant and the possibility of reproducing other climates that can contradict the ones that already exist in Vinaroz.In this system, the house builds a large playground from the strong slope of the land, a place from which to observe and include the house landscape, without being clearly observed form the street. It is in this playground where a more indeterminate and polifunctional way to live with the landscape is provided. Activities do not have a specific location in which to develop but rather, according to the local aspects, views, climate and privacy, they enable the project to develop as a landscape of variable domestic events that respond to desire, need or optimisation. It is in this place where the “far away table” or the “squid searching lamps” are designed as large-scale devices for interactions with the playground.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe top floor on two different heights covers the playground connecting it with the most private activities. Reality surpasses both in one continuous and limitless environment. Eating happens upstairs and sleeping on the sofa. Reading takes place in the backyard and one can shower at the front of the building.Save this picture!© José HéviaA Mediterranean Global Construction¿What is ‘globality’ if not a house of undulating tiles and plastic? Thousands of people live under this fundamental umbrella. But this system can be very informal or more sophisticated and efficient. The seasonless house is also a house without a place, a Mediterranean styled device. White, efficient for climate and solar radiation reasons is also efficient as a singular element of the roaming nature of its inhabitant. Its execution: a standardised and modulated construction system, personalised for specific needs in this house.Save this picture!© José HéviaBuilt from the inside out, with double walls made from cellular polycarbonate, simple filters of undulated polycarbonate, interlocked metallic tiles, different glasses according to the contiguity of the climate on either of its sides. The agro-textiles dissipate or accumulate the radiation. An open and closed house at the same time. That transpires where it appears closed and is hermetic where it appears open. The house has a ‘waiting structure’ in preparation for when the client attains a greater level of energy efficiency. The climate conforms to spontaneous space. In cities, in public spaces, and also in houses. We are all architects of the interior of our symbolic, sonorous and spacious receptacles, and the house is a back curtain  to be developed. Seasonless house is naked, almost a virgin; the project has just begun….Save this picture!© José HéviaProject gallerySee allShow lessBiałołęka Flat / All ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsSongpa Micro Housing / SsDSelected Projects Share Year:  CopyHouses•Vinaròs, Spain CopyAbout this officeCasos de CasasOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesVinaròsIcebergHousesSpainPublished on March 30, 2019Cite: “Seasonless House / Casos de Casas” 30 Mar 2019.

Project success

first_imgMost researchers will tell you that making a great scientist doesn’t require vast amounts of knowledge, but rather a keen interest in learning. Just ask Tomer Avidor-Reiss, an assistant professor of cell biology at Harvard who has been inviting area high school students to work in his lab for the past five years.“The key for me is motivation,” Avidor-Reiss said, sitting in his office at Harvard Medical School (HMS) surrounded by blown-up photographs of the fruit fly cells he spends his days researching. “We can teach them, but they have to have motivation to learn. We bring students into the lab, show them the science, and they have no choice — they fall in love.”Such is the goal of Project Success, a program operated by the Harvard Medical School Office for Diversity and Community Partnership that targets Boston and Cambridge high school students to participate in mentored summer research internships with researchers like Avidor-Reiss.An intensive, hands-on experience for students who are interested in science and medicine, the program is intended to create a pipeline of students from underrepresented communities going into high-tech fields. The students meet with senior researchers at each lab, devise a project, and then are given guidance on how to proceed, developing a hypothesis and testing it through the course of the internship.Since the program was launched in 1993, 99 percent of all Project Success graduates have been accepted at four-year colleges — including 10 percent who became Harvard undergraduates.For Frederick Chim, participating in Project Success opened the door to a career in science. A native of Hong Kong, Chim moved to Brighton in 2004. A guidance counselor noticed his interest in science and encouraged him to apply to Project Success.“Part of me thought, ‘Wow, this is amazing,’” Chim said of his acceptance into the program. “The other part thought, ‘Can I do this?’”Chim landed in Avidor-Reiss’ lab, studying genetic mutations of fruit fly cells and conducting experiments to shed light on how these genes are formed in the hopes of discovering how brain diseases develop. Because Project Success enables students to return to the labs throughout their undergraduate career, Chim has been able to see the long-term results of his work.“My friends who took science classes in school rarely saw the practical aspect,” he said of his days in high school. “For them, science was something you did for a grade. There was no incentive or connection to make science into a career. To work in a lab, to see science happen in front of you, is fascinating, fun, and inspiring.”Similarly, Ronny DeLeon, of Roslindale, said he’s using his experience in Project Success to figure out who he is and what he wants to do with his life. A 17-year-old senior at TechBoston Academy in Dorchester, DeLeon knew he liked science, but wasn’t sure how to turn his interest into a career.“Project Success is a tool for me to explore what I want to do,” he said. While his friends spent last summer enjoying their break, DeLeon spent it working in Brigham and Women’s Hospital‘s Visual Attention Lab.“I was nervous at first,” he said. “The expectations are high in the lab. But everyone is friendly; I feel at home there.”Students’ lab work is augmented by seminars and workshops given by faculty and administrators, site visits, and career guidance counseling. For DeLeon, those experiences have opened doors to career possibilities and life lessons. A visit to a neuroradiologist’s office piqued his interest in the field, while group exercises have given him a better sense of self.“Every time we leave a session, we have to say five positive things about ourselves,” he said. “At first, it seemed kind of cheesy, but then I thought about it and realized that I don’t do that with myself very often. It’s kind of nice to focus on the positives.”Students have the opportunity to return to the program for multiple years during high school and college. As an undergraduate at Boston University, Chim spent at least 12 hours a week in Avidor-Reiss’ lab. Now, he works as the program coordinator for Project Success, continuing the experience for students following in his footsteps. He plans to apply to graduate school next year and study what he calls “the science of life” — biology.last_img read more

Judge issues arrest warrant for the one million euro man!

first_imgA Judge has issued an arrest warrant for a man who demanded ONE MILLION EURO to come back into court.Thomas Dignam appeared at Letterkenny District Court yesterday. Mr Dignam, of Woodlands, Dooish, Ballybofey faces a number of motoring charges.The 69-year-old is charged with having no insurance and no driving license at LIDL car park at Paddy Harte Road in Letterkenny on June 12th, 2018.He is also charged with holding a mobile phone while driving on the same date.When asked what he was doing about the charges by Judge Paul Kelly, Dignam replied that the charges were “legal fiction.”When asked if he was Thomas Dignam he replied “I’m the man commonly known as Thomas Dignam.”Judge Paul Kelly adjourned the case until 2pm yesterday afternoon.However, Dignam replied “I want one million euro to come back into this court.”He then left the court.The case was then called in the afternoon but Mr Dignam failed to appear.Prosecuting Garda Gareth Moanghan said he stopped Dignam on the day in question and he was reluctant to give his full name and was “making light of the situation.”The Garda said he was argumentative and he was issued with a summons.Judge Kelly said Mr Dignam had handed in a number of documents in which he claimed that Letterkenny District Court was “a ship in dry dock.”He also appeared to have handed in an insurance certificate.However, upon checking the dates covered by the document, Sgt Gerard Dalton said the document did not cover the date on which the accused was stoped.Judge Kelly asked if Mr Dignam had any previous convictions and Gardai said that he had just one – for possession of explosives in 1974.A warrant was issued for Dignam’s arrest.Judge issues arrest warrant for the one million euro man! was last modified: October 17th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arrestletterkennyone million eurosommonsThomas Dignamwarrant. mobile phonelast_img read more

Stars Perform For SoldOut Audience At BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF

first_imgThe Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) announced that the 7th annual BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! raised a record-breaking $250,000 (a 35% increase over the previous year’s revenue).Broadway stars belted their favorite hits during 7th annual Broadway Belts for PFF! fundraiser The event, an exclusive fundraiser at New York City’s Edison Ballroom, was hosted by Broadway star and comedienne Julie Halston and featured Grammy and Tony Award winners on Monday, February 27.BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! was co-founded by Halston, an award-winning actress whose notable roles include THE BABYLON LINE, GYPSY, YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU and MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. As a leading advocate for the PFF, Halston and her husband Ralph Howard co-created the event after their friend, Associated Press theater critic Michael Kuchwara, passed away from pulmonary fibrosis (PF). Coincidentally, Howard was subsequently diagnosed with PF and successfully underwent lung transplantation.“To say the show was a smash is an understatement. Our performers were so incredibly gracious and everyone brought the house down,” said Halston. “Ralph and I are grateful for the opportunity to promote awareness of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s important work in helping patients and funding research for a cure.”Broadway stars belted their favorite hits under the direction of Carl Andress (THE DIVINE SISTER) with Christopher McGovern (CAGNEY) as Musical Director, Greg Santos as Stage Manager and produced by D. Michael Dvorchak, Sue Frost (COME FROM AWAY) and Ed Windels. This year’s performers included Grammy-winner Stephanie Mills (THE WIZ), Orfeh (Tony-nominee for LEGALLY BLONDE), Lucas Steele (NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812), NBC’s Gus Rosendale (“WEEKEND TODAY IN NEW YORK”), Stephanie J. Block (FALSETTOS, and Tony-nominee for THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD), Mandy Gonzalez (HAMILTON, IN THE HEIGHTS), Mario Cantone (“THE VIEW”), Robert Creighton (CAGNEY), and Tony-winner Randy Graff (CITY OF ANGELS, THE BABYLON LINE).The proceeds from the show are donated to the PFF’s work aimed at finding a cure for pulmonary fibrosis, a devastating and relentless group of progressive diseases that result in scarring of the lungs. Presently, there is no cure for PF.“Enhanced awareness and expanded research are vital to support those affected by pulmonary fibrosis and to continue to identify effective therapies,” said Gregory P. Cosgrove, MD, FCCP, Chief Medical Officer at the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. “We thank everyone involved in supporting our efforts and helping to make Broadway Belts For PFF! the success it has become.”last_img read more
