The spatial reaction of formal operations makes the strongest argument of this work.Save this picture!Floor PlanA simple rectangular base volume suffers a cut and a horizontal displacement. Thereby, space is more complex and is still controlled morphology. Two measures control the heights of the house, from 0 to 2.2m the walls and openings are defined and from there to the 4.40 the roof space is generated. Consequently it appears as a sinuous topography on the head of the occupants and contrasting to the plain land of the Pampas.Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoAll this becomes more dramatic thanks to the manipulation of natural light that filters through the skylights.Save this picture!ElevationFrom the street the house becomes tight but from the inner perception is a counterpoint.Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoThe program develops private activities within the lower boxes, bedrooms and bathrooms are grouped in the greater volume and kitchen, laundry and storage in two smaller ones.

New medical school will not reserve seats for TCU students

Posted On Jun 13 2021 by

first_imgTwitter Welcome TCU Class of 2025 What we’re reading: Not resign worthy What we’re reading: Congress making moves Twitter printThe joint TCU and University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTHSC) School of Medicine announced their incoming 2019 class recruitment will not include reserved seats for TCU students.Accreditation, the certifying process that determines if an educational program meets proper standards and requirements, was the main factor in this decision.“The School of Medicine received its accreditation through the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), which doesn’t allow medical schools to reserve seats,” said Maricar Estrella, Director of Digital Development and Content Strategy for the School of Medicine.The University of Texas at Austin and Texas A&M University have also been accredited by the LCME and are not allowed to reserve seats. As a result, most TCU students are not bothered by this decision.“I was a little surprised at first, but I think it makes sense and it gives everyone an equal chance,” said Grace Newell, TCU senior neuroscience major.Newell also said that she felt she did not gain the advantage of being a TCU student during the application and interview process.The TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine will allow students to gain experience seeing patients during the first week of class and Newell said that is why she applied there.“That helps keep empathy with students consistent throughout the whole four years,” Newell said. “Going into medical school, most students really want to help patients, but over time they begin seeing cases as a body part that needs to be fixed instead of a person who needs to be fixed.”TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine accreditation timeline.

Journalist on hunger strike in a critical state

first_img to go further RSF_en September 7, 2020 Find out more Organisation Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority The Mass Media Institute, a Ukrainian organisation affiliated to Reporters sans frontières, has interceded in favour of Efir-1 with the Lougansk state prosecutor and the municipal council. The mayor, like the militia, pretended not to have known about the journalists’ hunger strike. The trial following the Efir-1 complaint, scheduled for 21 November – a period when the RSF mission was in Lougansk – was postponed to 19 December. March 26, 2021 Find out more UkraineEurope – Central Asia According to information gathered by RSF, Olga Kouznetsova, editor-in-chief of the Lougansk television channel Efir-I and one of the four journalists in Lougansk on a hunger strike for the past 27 days, was admitted to intensive care. She lost consciousness on 8 December 2001 at 12p.m. Her three colleagues, also on a hunger strike, Tatiana Kojanovskaja, director of the channel, Olena Popova, head of the advertising department, and Victor Ganziy, a driver, may also soon be hospitalised. Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV The wrestling match between the TV channel Efir-1 and the Lougansk municipality has been going on for six months. The Lougansk municipality seems to be wanting to make the channel pay for supporting former mayor M. Yagoferov. On 5 June 2001 the Lougansk mayor decided to liquidate the channel and to create another channel, with the same name and broadcast on the same frequency. In April, Olga Kouznetsova told RSF that she had been threatened by telephone while covering the forced resignation of the former mayor of Lougansk. News December 12, 2001 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist on hunger strike in a critical state News Receive email alerts February 26, 2021 Find out more News Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media “The list of journalists who have died trying to practise their profession freely is likely to get even longer”, said Robert Ménard, RSF general secretary. “We have alerted the authorities for the past few weeks as to the seriousness of the situation and the legitimate demands of the journalists on a hunger strike. We now urge you personally to intervene so that their demands are taken into account. Otherwise we will hold you responsible for the consequences of this strike on the journalists’ lives”, added Mr. Ménard. News The hunger strikers demand:- that Efir-I be given back the broadcasting frequency officially allocated to it by the National Broadcasting Council and which was arbitrarily reallocated to another TV channel, without any decision by the Council or by the courts;- that the complaint lodged by the Efir-1 management, challenging the compulsory liquidation of the channel, be investigated;- that the administrative obstacles prohibiting the channel from using its bank account to pay its debts be lifted. The mayor of Kougansk, against whom the channel lodged a complaint, is evidently opposed to the lifting of these obstacles. UkraineEurope – Central Asia Follow the news on Ukraine In a letter addressed on 10 December 2001 to Ukrainian president Léonid Koutchma, Reporters sans frontières (Reporters Without Borders – RSF) expressed its alarm concerning Olga Kouznetsova, editor-in-chief of the Lougansk TV channel Efir-1, who has gone into a coma after 27 days on a hunger strike.

first_imgThe new facilities will produce renewable hydrogen fuel for customers in the mobility and power generation sectors Ways2H plans to build a waste-to-hydrogen facility in California. (Credit: JBEC/Tsubasa Engineering) Ways2H, a producer of renewable hydrogen from waste streams, has joined forces with the US-based EPC company Ford, Bacon & Davis, to design and build waste-to-hydrogen facilities in California and other locations in the US.The facilities are planned to produce renewable hydrogen fuel for customers in the mobility and power generation sectors, providing alternative disposal options for waste processing and waste disposal firms.Ford, Bacon & Davis business development vice president John Brabender said: “We’re excited to work with Ways2H to commercialize a new generation of biomass-to-renewable hydrogen projects.“We have a history of renewable energy projects and commercialization of new technologies, such as biomass to chemicals, solar power, and carbon sequestration, and we see big opportunities for new renewable hydrogen technology.”Ways2H will build a transportable, modular waste-to-hydrogen unit in CaliforniaUnder the collaboration, the two companies intend to build the first US modular waste-to-hydrogen production facility in California in the fourth quarter of 2020, followed by additional projects in 2021.The facilities will feature the patented process technology developed through Ways2H’s ongoing joint venture with long-time technical partner, Japan Blue Energy.The technology facilitates conversion of the wastes including medical, municipal solid, plastics, agricultural residue and wastewater sludge into renewable hydrogen, with a net zero-carbon footprint.The California facility would be the company’s second transportable, modular waste-to-hydrogen unit, after its first commercial modular waste-to-hydrogen project in Japan, which is currently underway for the next Tokyo Olympics.Designed to be transportable,  the first waste-to-hydrogen production unit in California will have a capacity to process one tonne of waste per day and produce 40 to 50kgs of hydrogen per day.Ways2H CEO Jean-Louis Kindler said: “Our goal is to improve the global environment by producing carbon-negative hydrogen, while offering sustainable waste disposal. This collaboration with Ford, Bacon & Davis will help us achieve those goals, while supplying the United States with another clean fuel and power option to meet growing demand.”last_img read more
