LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Entice Series Entrance SystemDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumText description provided by the architects. Designed as a project with great spatiality, this home is based on the concept of a large self-supporting glass box which supports the concrete roof, that surrounds it with side tranparencies, and with an aperture of a retractable roof that reinforces the idea of full transparency. Save this picture!Section AAThe house will be occupied all year despite being a temporary residence, thus it is equipped with a system that conditions the environments naturally. The central roof is operable to release hot air; the entry of cold air is allowed through the screens of the glass facade overlooking the sea. In winter, the entire glass box collects heat from the environment and as it remains closed, maintains the heat creating a greenhouse effect.Save this picture!Courtesy of Gómez De La Torre & GuerreroThis temporary residence, located in the first row on Señoritas beach, has a site area of ​​270.30 m2. The project proposes a house with integrated environments, spread over three levels, which are connected to the sea horizon view. The design is based on a central, double height living room – interior terrace, through which one can register the exterior. This terrace has a differentiated floor, a deck, where there is a jacuzzi and a retractable roof, made of translucent polycarbonate and aluminum, that will remain open in the summer and when closed, it will protect the house when it is uninhabited. In winter it protects from the cold, fostering a warm and lit atmosphere. At the same time, it allows for adequate cross ventilation to cool the house in high temperatures. We propose a large outdoor terrace with a deck and an elongated pool with a jacuzzi. A staircase leads to the outside, with direct access to the terrace and garage on the first floor .Save this picture!First LevelThe first level, where the garage is, has an open courtyard connected to the laundry, a bedroom with a bathroom and a service area with a bathroom and storage area. From there, a staircase connects the three levels of the house. The garage houses up to six cars. The second level includes the social environments, kitchen with pantry, and to the left, two bedrooms and the terrace area. The third level has a glass bridge that connects the left and right wings, and looks over the double height. To the right, overlooking the sea, is the master bedroom and bathroom. It has a large terrace. To the back, there is another bedroom with bathroom. On the left, at the front we propose a family room with terrace, and the back, another bedroom with bathroom. We include a corridor to an additional laundry for beachwear. Likewise, in the third bedroom, we have placed a ladder within a closet for tsunami emergency preparedness. Formally, the house has a large roof with a solid appearance. This contrasts with the lightness of the iron column structure of the living room. This roof, which covers the terraces in front of the bedrooms, favors them with the incidence of solar rays.Project gallerySee allShow lessHASSELL Wins Competition to Construct Landmark Tower in SydneyArchitecture NewsNew Shelter in Ruavieja / Sergio RojoSelected Projects Share Cristal House / Gómez De La Torre & GuerreroSave this projectSaveCristal House / Gómez De La Torre & Guerrero Save this picture!Courtesy of Gómez De La Torre & Guerrero+ 17 Share Cristal House / Gómez De La Torre & Guerrero Houses Peru “COPY”center_img Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Lima, Peru ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeGómez De La Torre & GuerreroOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLimaPeruPublished on March 13, 2014Cite: “Cristal House / Gómez De La Torre & Guerrero” [Casa Cristal / Gómez De La Torre & Guerrero] 13 Mar 2014.

Lake-effect snow, Arctic air blast Midwest, Northeast

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — At least 7 inches of lake-effect snow had been reported in western New York as of early Thursday morning, with squalls coming off the Great Lakes and occasionally pushing snowfall rates to 1 to 2 inches per hour in northwest Pennsylvania and upstate New York. Additionally, wind gusts nearing 40 mph are causing near whiteout conditions on roadways affected by the snow squalls. This comes after a quick-moving storm dumped 7 to 8 inches of snow on Vermont and New Hampshire on Wednesday. In parts of New York state on Thursday, snow accumulations could exceed 1 foot. As the winter storm pulls away farther into Southeast Canada, lake-effect snow squalls should end later Thursday. Meanwhile, gusty winds are still an issue along the Appalachian Mountains and are extending into parts of the Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia metro areas. Wind gusts approaching 50 mph were reported on the New Jersey shore on Wednesday and others near 60 mph were reported in western North Carolina. New winter storm watches have been issued Thursday for parts of the Midwest as a new storm is forecast to develop on Friday. This storm already is pulling down an Arctic blast into parts of the Midwest Thursday morning, with single-digit wind chills greeting those waking up from Minneapolis to Chicago. This Arctic air will make its way into the Northeast on Friday, with wind chills across the entire region in the single digits and teens. The wind chill in New York City will be about 13 degrees Friday morning. There’s increasing confidence that a new winter storm will develop on Friday morning in the southern high Plains, bringing snow to parts of Colorado and northern New Mexico. On Friday and into Saturday, this storm will organize a bit more, boosted by a separate system from the north, potentially adding to snowfalls in the central Plains and along the Interstate 70 corridor from Kansas City to Indianapolis. Snow may just reach Chicago, with heavier snow seen in central Illinois and northern Missouri. The storm should slide into the Ohio and Mississippi river valleys on Saturday night. Forecasters have more confidence in what the storm does this weekend on the East Coast, however some aspects of this weather event remain unclear. On Sunday and Monday, the storm likely will become a little more energized and organized again as it moves towards the coast line near Virginia and North Carolina. However, a high pressure sitting in southern Canada should suppress the storm from making too much northern movement. The result of this is a snow shield wrapping around the cold side of the storm that likely brings impacts to parts of the mid Atlantic. There’s increasing potential for accumulating snowfall in the mid-Atlantic for the second half of the weekend and into early Monday. However, there’s still potential for the heaviest snow bands to slide a little north or be suppressed a little south. So it’s still too early to pinpoint where the heaviest snowfall will set up. Additionally, it seems the snow wouldn’t be particularly intense. It’s still too early to tell. There’s no sufficient evidence, despite reports on social media, to suggest a blockbuster winter weather event is in the offing.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Drop diversity quotas to focus on bottom line

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Drop diversity quotas to focus on bottom lineOn 26 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Efforts to improve diversity within organisations are more likely to succeedif they are driven by a commitment to improve the bottom line, rather thanmeeting quotas. Celia de Anca, director at Instituto de Empresa’s Center for Diversity inGlobal Management, said employers that improve the diversity of their workforceare able to respond more effectively to the needs of customers and changingmarkets. Speaking at a workshop on diversity in global management in London, shesaid: “Up to now, we have been in a world of models,” she said.”I think more and more we need to break the world of modelsÉI don’tbelieve diversity should be imposed.” According to De Anca, middle managers are most likely to be entrenched inoutdated organisational cultures and hinder attempts to improve diversity.Continued stereotyping of gender, race and religion is another obstacle thatbusiness must overcome, she added. Annette Andrews, a member of Ford Europe’s dedicated seven-person diversityteam, told delegates that employers can drive improvements to workforcediversity more effectively by maintaining separate HR and diversity teams.”Our ultimate aim is to do ourselves out of a job,” Andrews said. last_img read more

A magnetospheric substorm observed at Sanae, Antarctica

first_imgA magnetospheric substorm that occurred at Sanae, Antarctica, on July 27, 1979, was observed by a variety of techniques. A synthesis of the observations is presented, and an attempt made to deduce details of the behavior of the magnetosphere‐ionosphere system during the event. While there was some evidence of a growth phase, it was inconclusive. At the onset there was a rapid change in the tail field, which assumed a more dipolar form, accompanied by Pi 2 oscillations and the precipitation of 6‐keV electrons, with brightening of the auroral arc, auroral‐type sporadic E ionization, and riometer absorption. A positive spike was observed in the D magnetic component, instead of the expected negative one. There was no evidence of the usual westward traveling surge at the beginning of the expansion phase during which the precipitation region, auroral arc, and electrojet moved rapidly poleward, though it may have occurred outside the field of view from Sanae. The Hβ emission increased by a factor of less than 2, whereas the oxygen and nitrogen emissions monitored increased by 3–4. During the recovery phase, phenomena were consistent with a return of the tail field to an elongated form; a very high ratio of 557.7‐nm/630‐nm emissions, exceeding 10, was observed; and the electrojet lagged noticeably behind the photon emission regions.last_img read more
