A virgin place which must be tamed.Save this picture!Courtesy of Cristian Irarrázaval AndrewsFor this first construction, the project’s logic had to be as fitting to local knowledge as possible, because due to the terrain’s characteristics and the difficulties of access, most of the materials, techniques and workmanship used would have to be local, presenting a somewhat technically atemporal construction.Save this picture!Floor PlanOn the other hand, architecturally, the house had to be able to mutate or adapt, because of it being the starting point of a colonization project, there was no way of foreseeing what uses it would be given today or in the future.Save this picture!Courtesy of Cristian Irarrázaval AndrewsIt presents the construction of a wooden pavilion, mounted on stilts, on a very steep site, located close to the lake shore.

Re batten down the hatches for day-late storm

first_imgWhatsApp Email Facebook Linkedin NewsBreaking newsRe batten down the hatches for day-late stormBy admin – December 23, 2013 532 Twittercenter_img Advertisement Andrew CareyHAVOC was caused last night after the promised storm and extreme weather front failed to deliver the deluge and high winds as promised, but it did make a lot of rain today.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up However, in an effort to right the wrongs of inaccurate forecasting, another severe weather warming has been posted for tonight where it is predicted that what was promised last night, will in fact turn up tonight and through to Christmas Eve.The entire west coast counties, including Limerick, has been ordered to re batten down the hatches and tie up the ponies as the storm front from Canada is due to land over the next few hours.Winds of up to 120km/h are due to rip up the coast while another downpour is expected.Motorists are advised to avoid unnecessary journeys and anyone with planned travel itineraries should check with operators as ferries have been cancelled or delayed.Met Eireann issued a yellow wind alert and while not thought to be as strong as first predicted it is set to be increased.Temperatures will drop and while snow is not expected, some sleet and sideways rain will hit the country.Black ice and localised flooding will be present in parts.As the unpredictable weather has varied from hour to hour, a recent survey has shown that 80 per cent of all weather forecasts are wrong.

Harvard students help show Sox faithful ‘green’ is the new ‘crimson’

first_imgAs President Drew Faust threw out the ceremonial first pitch during Harvard Night at Boston’s Fenway Park on Sept. 22, thousands of spectators  were busy throwing out their recyclable plastic cups and bottles in the bags held by 30 Harvard students who spent the evening volunteering for the Red Sox Green Team.  The students, the majority of whom were freshmen who had expressed a commitment to the environment and sustainability through the Green ’14 program, were joined by the University’s recycling czar Rob Gogan and staff from the Office for Sustainability.The volunteers’ evening kicked off with an orientation from a member of the Red Sox staff and then the eager group of students spread throughout Fenway to collect bags of recyclables. The students said they appreciated the opportunity to help the environment and represent the University while exploring the nation’s oldest ballpark.“The experience was incredible! Not only did we get to explore Fenway Park, but we all got to do something we were passionate about,” said Kristen Wraith ’14.  “It was amazing how well the crowd responded to the Green Team. I had so many people thank me for what I was doing and ask how they could do the same. This is something that I would do again in a second.”This wasn’t the first group of Harvard students to help show the Fenway faithful that “green” is the new “crimson.” Last spring, a group of Graduate School of Education students volunteered on the Fenway Green Team during the Red Sox first home game of the season. The Red Sox organization recruits volunteer Green Teams to collect recyclables during games throughout each season.As part of Harvard’s commitment to building a healthier, more sustainable campus the University has made recycling and composting a priority.  The recycling rate at Harvard’s main campus is 55 percent, thanks in part to the adoption of single stream recycling.  Single stream recycling means all recyclables – from paper products to bottles and cans – go in the same bin. Recently, Harvard Recycling announced that even paper coffee cups and pizza boxes (if the food has been scraped out) can be recycled. Of course, it’s always best to bring your own reusable coffee mug with you to reduce waste and even save money (many cafes on campus offer discounts to students with reusable mugs). Recycling is also incorporated into all home football games at Harvard Stadium.To learn more about single stream recycling, check out Harvard’s September Green Tip of the Month.last_img read more

Expenses rising for issuers

first_imgThe credit card war is getting even hotter, but this time the price to play is being driven higher by consumers rather than the big banks, says one analyst.While the average cash back reward is staying the same—about 1.5% of spend—what is driving up costs for issuers are increasingly savvy consumers redeeming their rewards more and expecting more rewards programs to be easy to use, especially through mobile apps, said Tim Kolk, principal at TRK Advisors.“It is more expensive for issuers today than it used to be,” said Kolk. “Consumer behavior is making the game more expensive, and that has implications for credit unions. Because if consumers are learning to redeem rewards more effectively, that’s going to increase costs to run rewards programs.” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more

The Timberwolves Might Be For Real

Welcome to The Lab, FiveThirtyEight’s basketball podcast. On this week’s show (Jan. 11, 2018), LaVar Ball has been making headlines for calling out Lakers head coach Luke Walton, saying the players “don’t want to play for him.” Neil, Chris and Kyle break down the stats to see if these claims hold any merit.
