VIMOB Mon Paradis resides under the veil of the monumental saman trees of the Corregimiento de Rozo – Valle del Cauca. A dwelling that cherishes the magical sunsets of the Cauca Valley, those of which Jorge Isaacs detailed in his novel María as “clouds of violet and the glow of pale gold.” This residence is designed under the concept of a circular economy and developed in an industrialized manner. Encapsulating the principles that guide the Colectivo Creativo Studio, ones that bet on efficient construction processes, drawn from the meticulous development of its modulation and the materials that coalesce with harmony and austerity in the environment where it resides, transforming these places into habitable landscapes. The project began upon the discovery of this exceptional terrain by the architect and the client.Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaThe latter, seduced by the characteristics of the proposal and with the acknowledgment that landscapes like this, ones with high natural value, bring up the relevance of respecting the original conditions, of efficiency and reversibility that permit inserting a habitable module respectfully dominating the natural surroundings. And they were precisely two volumes of pale gold that were the resources to incorporate the sensation of the landscapes in its design. Two volumes that highlight the experience of the place while camouflaging themselves in between rays of light and crisp shadows. An intimate and private module for the bedrooms and a contrasting notion in the social space. Both of which amalgamate through an open space that affords the enjoyment of a permanent relationship between the exterior and the interior. A relationship that is magnified with a philodendron garden that brings a pleasing bioclimate, augmenting the experiential and relational richness of in-between spaces.Save this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaSave this picture!FacadeSave this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaIn addition to the perception of weightlessness that is brought about by elevating the terrain, Mon Paradis clearly emphasizes the transitions in-between spaces, generating a sensation of spatial diversity; the large windows seek to create a continuous dialogue with the exterior, framing the central and western mountain ranges. In its interior, the rigorous control of color range and material promotes the use of sustainable laminated wood panels in its walls and ceiling and the use of black anodized aluminum in its windows and the pergolas that surround the terraces. This project synthesizes, on one hand, the benefits that industrialization can offer: precision, speed, managing unexpected occurrences, the ability to preserve materials, elements, and components in order to be more environmentally responsible. And on the other hand, demonstrating and validating that these kinds of industrialized construction designs can intervene in these contextsSave this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaSave this picture!© Andrés ValbuenaProject gallerySee allShow lessH+M House / e.Re studioSelected ProjectsEmpire Stores / S9 ArchitectureSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Andrés Valbuena, Mateo Lehner Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Andrés Valbuena+ 26Curated by Clara Ott Share ArchDaily Mon Paradis House / Colectivo Creativo ArquitectosSave this projectSaveMon Paradis House / Colectivo Creativo Arquitectoslast_img read more

Flu activity remains high in Texas

first_imgFacebook printDespite the Center for Disease and Control (CDC) reporting that influenza activity has declined slightly within the past few weeks, Texas is still indicated as being one of the states with the highest flu activity. Texas is one of 35 states with “high” flu activity. The CDC is reporting a widespread statewide flu activity level with 34.72% of positive flu specimens in Texas hospitals.“I don’t tend to get sick easily and I usually don’t get my flu shot,” said Clay Edwards, a first-year philosophy major. “I’m pretty conscious of staying clean and washing my hands regularly.” Influenza, more commonly referred to as “the flu”, is nothing new. Every year, the season approaches, and doctors urge the public to get their shots and be more diligent about staying sanitary; however, health officials predicted this flu season to hit harder than in years past. Three Tarrant County influenza-associated pediatric deaths have been reported, according to the most recent Tarrant County influenza surveillance weekly report. Tarrant County does not track adult influenza-associated deaths because it’s not required by law, said Richard Hill, a public information officer for Tarrant County public health. Eleven people have died from flu-related complications in Dallas County for the 2019-20 season, according to the county’s Health and Human Services. While there is no official start or end to flu season, it typically begins in October and lasts until February. TCU’s Brown-Lupton Health Center is encouraging students to be conscientious about staying healthy now that peak season is in full swing. Although Lois-Kate Kolkhorst, a junior fashion merchandising major, had the flu twice before, the beginning of peak season didn’t phase her — until she tested positive for influenza last week. “I’m out of class for the whole week,” Kolkhorst said. “I know a few people that have the flu right now. I’m a little nervous about the flu affecting my school work.”For both Kolkhorst and Edwards, getting the flu shot was never something in which they partook. However, Dr. Jane Torgerson, the medical director at the health center, advises getting the shot. “The flu vaccine is an inactivated virus and you cannot get the flu from it,” Torgerson said. “If you do get the flu despite getting the vaccine, it is much more likely to be a mild case. What is worse, two seconds of discomfort from a shot or four to five days of misery from the flu?” Since the start of the new year, the health center has documented 17 cases of influenza, a number similar to years past, according to Torgerson. Although Torgerson, who has been at TCU for 12 years, said this year’s flu season hasn’t been nearly as bad as years past, she still encourages students to take preemptive measures to avoid getting sick. Aside from getting the flu vaccine, she urges students to wash their hands, avoid sharing drinks, straws, or utensils and, arguably the most important one, to stay home when sick.TCU offers over 3,500 free flu vaccines each year. All health center staff obtain the flu vaccine each year. Additionally, TCU has hand sanitizers located conveniently throughout campus and posts flu prevention information across campus and electronically to students. Grace Amiss is a senior journalism major and managing editor for TCU360. When she is not reporting she is most likely raving about her golden retriever or taking a spin class. Grace is currently writing about student life at TCU, so feel free to drop her a line if you come across a story you feel is worth sharing!

Health officials say the flu season is winding down, and it has killed 105 children – about the average toll. The flu season started earlier than usual and ended up being moderately severe. Roughly 100 children die in an average flu season. One exception was the swine flu pandemic of 2009-2010, when 348 children died. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported the latest number Friday, March 22, 2013.

RSF urges French premier to refer “global security” bill’s article 24 to constitutional council

first_img RSF_en Despite many warnings by RSF and other journalists’ organisations, the National Assembly today approved a version of the bill that was previously agreed by a joint commission on which senators and deputies are equally represented. As the Senate already approved this version on 7 April, its adoption is now definitive and only the constitutional council could now strike down the controversial article.“Despite our repeated warnings, the deputies and senators unfortunately did not seize the opportunity to stop the infernal machine of the global security bill’s article 24,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We therefore urge Prime Minister Jean Castex to keep his promise to refer article 24 to the constitutional council. If the constitutional council does not intercede, press freedom legislation in France will deteriorate.”On 24 November, the prime minister denied any intention of endangering press freedom in the global security bill and promised to submit it himself to the constitutional council.Although article 24 has undergone major changes in the course of its passage through parliament, it continues to pose a danger to journalists covering police operations. The version that was finally adopted today* creates the new crime of “causing the identification” of police officers or gendarmes with an intent to harm.As RSF noted after this final version of article 24 was approved by the Senate’s law commission, the new crime of “causing the identification” is not defined. Its wording does not spell out what constitutes the offence (disseminating photos or videos, or inciting identification) and maintains the vague and dangerous concept of harm to “psychological integrity” previously criticized by RSF.The new crime of “causing the identification” of police officers or gendarmes with an intent to harm replaces the ban on the dissemination of photos and videos of police officers or gendarmes with an intent to harm that was in the first version of article 24.The new version is even more dangerous inasmuch as, instead of being incorporated into the 1881 law on press freedom, it is being added to the penal code, which does not provide journalists with the same procedural guarantees and exposes them to summary trial by courts that are not specialised in media law.As RSF requested, these guarantees are however being applied to article 18 of the bill on “consolidating respect for the Republic’s principles” (also known as the “anti-separatism” bill), which aims to protect all citizens, including police officers and other state employees, against the dissemination of personal and professional information. The existence of two similar article in different laws is incongruous and quite possibly problematic.France is ranked 34th out of 180 countries in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index.* Article 24 of the definitively adopted version of the “global security bill” says: “Causing, with the manifest aim of harming their physical or psychological integrity, the identification of an officer of the national police, a member of the national gendarmerie or an officer of the municipal police when they are taking part in a police operation (…) is punishable by five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros.”** Article 18 of the bill on consolidating respect for the Republic’s principles, as approved by the Senate, says: “Revealing, disseminating or transmitting, by any means whatsoever, information relating to the private, family or professional life of a person allowing them to be identified or located, with the aim of exposing them or members of their family to a direct risk of harm to themselves or their property, a risk of which the perpetrator could not be unaware, is punishable by three years in prison and fine of 45,000 euros.” FranceEurope – Central Asia Media independence Freedom of expression Receive email alerts Jean Castex addresses the National Assembly on 24 November 2020.

George Floyd’s daughter offered full scholarship to Texas Southern University

first_imgDavid J. Phillip-Pool/Getty ImagesBy NICOLE PELLETIERE, ABC News(HOUSTON) — Texas Southern University is honoring the memory of George Floyd by providing a full scholarship for his 6-year-old daughter, Gianna.TSU announced the offer Tuesday on its website as thousands of mourners, family and friends gathered in Houston, where Floyd grew up, to lay him to rest.“This Board is committed to education and understands that a college degree is one of many powerful steps toward a productive and successful life,” said Albert H. Myres, chair of the Board of Regents. “We know that this gesture cannot take the place of her dad’s loving presence, but we hope that it will contribute to easing her journey through life.”Floyd was born in North Carolina though lived most of his life in Houston, where he graduated from Jack Yates High School near TSU.Floyd later moved to Minneapolis, where he died May 25 after he was pinned down by police officer Derek Chauvin.Following his death, demonstrations in Minnesota spread across the nation with protesters calling to end police brutality.In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Gianna Floyd said she wants people to know, “I miss him.”Her mother, Roxie Washington told GMA Floyd just wanted Gianna “to have the best.”In a nod to strengthen Floyd’s legacy, TSU said, it’s offering “an educational pathway for his daughter.”TSU chairman Gerald Smith said the scholarship for the child will be privately funded.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Air Force makes history naming woman as top NCO

first_imgU.S. Air ForceBy LUIS MARTINEZ, ABC NEWS(WASHINGTON) — The Air Force is making history by selecting Master Sgt. JoAnne S. Bass as the 19th chief master sergeant of the Air Force, making her the first woman in history to serve as the highest-ranking non-commissioned member of a U.S. military service.Bass was selected by Gen. Charles Q. Brown, the incoming Air Force chief of staff, who has made history as the first African American to head one of the military services. Brown will succeed Gen. David Goldfien as the Air Force’s chief of staff in August.“I could not be more excited to work side-by-side with Chief Bass,” Brown said in a statement announcing the decision.“She has unique skills that will help us both lead the Total Force and live up to the high expectations of our Airmen,” he added. “She is a proven leader who has performed with distinction at every step of her accomplished career. I have no doubt that Chief Bass will provide wise counsel as we pursue and implement initiatives to develop and empower Airmen at all levels.”Bass was chosen from a dozen finalists from across the Air Force selected for their experience, recommendations from senior commanders and performances across their Air Force careers.“I’m honored and humbled to be selected as the 19th Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, and follow in the footsteps of some of the best leaders our Air Force has ever known,” Bass said in the statement. “The history of the moment isn’t lost on me; I’m just ready to get after it. And I’m extremely grateful for and proud of my family and friends who helped me along the way.”Bass will succeed Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Kalen Wright, who assumed the role of the top enlisted airman in February 2017.“This is a historic moment for our Air Force and she is a phenomenal leader who’ll bring new ideas and her own style to the position,” Wright said in the statement. “She’ll do great things for our Airmen and she’ll blaze her own trail as our CMSAF.”Wright is the second African American to serve as the Air Force’s top enlisted airman, Chief Master Sgt. Thomas N. Barnes was the first, serving from 1973 to 1977.Wright’s profile has increased in the last two weeks after he issued an impassioned post on Twitter in which he asked “Who am I?” in the wake of George Floyd’s death.But it was the answer to that question that went viral and sparked a candid conversation with Air Force leadership.“I am a Black man who happens to be the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force. I am George Floyd…I am Philando Castile, I am Michael Brown, I am Alton Sterling, I am Tamir Rice,” Wright wrote, listing the names of black men killed by police officers.Wright and Goldfein later participated in a candid video discussion about race in which the top enlisted airman expressed concerns that his sons or any of his airmen “could be the next George Floyd.”ABC News’ Elizabeth McLaughlin contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
