Panetta añadió que la guerra “mereció la pena” en sangre y dinero por haber encaminado a Irak hacia la democracia. Algunos especialistas opinan que las fuerzas iraquíes son incapaces de defender el país ante amenazas extranjeras. Más de 100 mil iraquíes murieron desde la invasión estadounidense en el 2003. Muchos se preguntan si valió la pena tantos muertos de ambos lados y tantos gastos en equipos de guerra.El New York Times informa que para la Iglesia Católica Romana sus principales preocupaciones políticas en las próximas elecciones son: el auge del secularismo, las legislaciones sobre el aborto y los matrimonios del mismo sexo.Sólo hay que leer la página internacional de cualquier periódico para saber que la violencia se ha globalizado a todos los niveles. Grupos cristianos en la India han pedido al gobierno que elabore leyes que aminoren la violencia “entre grupos comunales y traiga justicia”. Además piden que se castigue la intolerancia entre grupos religiosos. El Consejo Cristiano de Toda India ha pedido las oraciones de todos los habitantes y se ha comprometido a elaborar un borrador para ser presentado al Parlamento.Una nueva campaña publicitaria en la que aparece la reconocida modelo brasilera Adriana Lima posando para la diseñadora de ropa Donna Karán en Haití, ha comenzado a desatar una polémica a través de medios sociales por considerarse insensible ante la situación que atraviesa el abatido país.

Please enter your name here Mattie Rogers, a native of Apopka and University of Central Florida graduate, just made history at Thailand’s 2019 Weightlifting World Championships. Rogers, who has her eyes set on next year’s Olympic Games, did her part Monday, becoming the first American woman to ever medal at 3 consecutive world championships.Competing in the 71kg weight category, Rogers lifted 240kg (529lbs) total — a personal best and good for silver. Her 134kg (295lbs) “clean and jerk” and 106kg (233lbs) “snatch” were good for silver and bronze respectively. Effectively, she lifted the equivalent of both a set of bunk beds and a washing machine during her two medal-winning lifts.All this to say, a pretty good day for the Apopka native who grew up as a gymnast and cheerleader before becoming the “World’s Most Popular Weightlifter.”Mattie RogersIn the span of just a few years, 23-year-old Martha Ann “Mattie” Rogers has become arguably the biggest name in USA weightlifting. She’s been a World University Champion, an American Open champ, and the “Best Overall Lifter” at the National Championships and Olympic Trials (despite narrowly missing a spot on the 2016 Olympic team). In 2018, she became the first American in more than 20 years to medal at the World Championships in consecutive years, and her U.S. records in the snatch and clean & jerk had some observers already ranking her as the best American 69 KG female weightlifter of all time.Growing up outside Orlando, Florida, Mattie’s earliest Olympic aspirations were actually focused on gymnastics. By 17, however, a growth spurt and an introduction to CrossFit had redirected her energy to weightlifting, and new Olympic goals soon followed.As she sets her eyes on a World Championship in 2019 and an Olympic debut in 2020, Rogers has gained the backing of a devoted fan base, including many young lifters inspired by her dedication and accomplishments.Editor’s Note: roguefitness.com contributed to this report.

CopyHouses•Canada Photographs: Bruce EdwardsText description provided by the architects. Located in the inner-City, issues of privacy, occupation, served/servant spaces, affordability and available sunlight defined the context for design. Competing goals of maximizing square footage versus creating exterior amenity spaces, under the legislative constraints imposed by by-laws, created an opportunity for a kind of case study. Save this picture!© Bruce EdwardsRecommended ProductsEngineered Wood FlooringParklex International S.L.Wood Flooring in L’Avenue RestaurantCoffee tablesBoConceptLos Angeles Lounge Table 6250Curtain WallsJansenFacade Systems – VISS Fire EI30The conceptual driver for the project was the exploration of a fundamental served/servant relationship, in which servicing costs are adapted to the specific limitations and opportunities of a small infill lot. The programme is first divided into 2 simple boxes, one a enclosed box while the other is a transparent articulated volume. The interface between the two volumes becomes conditioned through the addition of a courtyard into the served space, begins to articulate the building envelope through the creation of more surface area. Save this picture!© Bruce EdwardsThe integration the courtyard into the core of the house, became the central feature of the project and serves multiple functions, both spatially and programmatically. At its most fundamental level, it becomes a “lightbox”, allowing generous amounts of daylight to wash into the core of the residence. This is unlike most infill houses, whose interiors become tunnel-like as a result of building by-law and code limitations. Save this picture!© Bruce EdwardsAround this courtyard, the programme re-orientates itself, with the interior spaces becoming re-focused to this exterior lightbox. This effectively liberates the programme from the limitations of its infill location, reversing the typical response of maximizing square footage. Instead, the project creates an exterior space that conditions the interior volumes through light and connections to the outside. The large interior glazing walls facing the lightbox can slide away, allowing the exterior patio to become part of the residence in the summer, blurring the separation between interior and exterior space, while providing multiple opportunities to engage. Save this picture!© Bruce EdwardsThe next component is the organization of the circulation around the courtyard. The entrance way expands into a bar of circulation and amenities anchoring the house, while it also becomes a promenade around the lightbox. The exterior space becomes an activation point for circulation, visually, but also spatially, allowing multiple opportunities to engage with it. A second wrapper folds over this bar to create large multi-use spaces with views to downtown and a focused view of the courtyard. It also becomes permeable at the second floor, creating a screen that filters light and provides privacy, but also acts to define the courtyard volume.Save this picture!© Bruce EdwardsProject gallerySee allShow lessA Holistic Perspective in Sustainable Construction ProjectsArticlesAD Round Up: Best from Flickr Part XXVIIIArticles Share Canada Save this picture!© Bruce Edwards+ 13 Share Projects Wrap House / Marc BoutinSave this projectSaveWrap House / Marc Boutin Houses Architects: Marc Boutin Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/101820/wrap-house-marc-boutin Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/101820/wrap-house-marc-boutin Clipboard Wrap House / Marc Boutin Year: 2010 ArchDaily “COPY” “COPY” Photographs CopyAbout this officeMarc BoutinOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesCanadaPublished on January 07, 2011Cite: “Wrap House / Marc Boutin” 07 Jan 2011.

Urban Biophillic Pavilion / studio d’ARCSave this projectSaveUrban Biophillic Pavilion / studio d’ARC “COPY” Architects: studio d’ARC Area Area of this architecture project Urban Biophillic Pavilion / studio d’ARC United States “COPY” ArchDaily Area: 576 ft²Text description provided by the architects. The urban biophillic pavilion, designed by studio d’ARC, is located atop a nineteenth century row house in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The pavilion is a reconstruction of a rooftop greenhouse originally built in 1978. The new pavilion serves as both a garden and common room with indoor and outdoor areas including deck platforms with spectacular views. More photographs and drawings following the break.Save this picture!This rooftop biophillic pavilion is located in the South Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh, in an area known as “the flats”. This area is a geological product of the alluvial basin of the Monongahela River. This unique basin allows for long vistas and is endowed with ample sunlight. These environmental features made this neighborhood one of Pittsburgh’s oldest developed areas and was an early home for many of the city’s glass and later steel making facilities. The South Side experienced the most rapid growth as a dense residential district of mainly row houses in the later part of the nineteenth century built to provide housing for the workers of the steelmaking industry.Save this picture!Located atop a nineteenth century row house, the pavilion is a reconstruction of a rooftop greenhouse originally built in 1978 by Ernie and Jan Sota. Inspired by the early bioshelter work of the New Alchemy Institute on Cape Cod and using solar greenhouse principals of steep south face glazing, the original greenhouse was one of Pittsburgh’s first green building projects. The 1978 structure allowed the owners to garden year-round in a dense urban context which did not provide for any ground level plantings. Fresh air and in the winter, excess heat and greenhouse fragrance were delivered to the apartments below through a recycled furnace blower motor.Save this picture!Made mainly of conventionally framed lumber, wood siding and Kalwall, the greenhouse, after years of continual use, was in need of replacement. The new pavilion’s structural enclosure is similar conceptually to the Russian “Matryoshka” nested dolls — “a structure within a structure”. The main supporting structure is within and is made of exposed douglas fir while the outside enclosure is made of standard wood construction, glass and terne coated stainless steel. The new structure is built to last using aluminum sloped glazing, insulated glass and stainless steel siding and roofing and uses the same “solar” greenhouse configuration as the original. Save this picture!In its new form, the pavilion serves as a biophillic garden with hydroponic gardening for the tenants with both indoor and outdoor areas. The pavilion now acts as a common room for the tenants that they can use year-round and includes two outside deck platforms which allow for spectacular views of the South Side flats and slopes, Mt. Washington, and Downtown Pittsburgh. Besides the stunning views that can be seen both from the decks and within through the large windows, the pavilion again provides a space to grow flowers and vegetables using a combination of organic hydroponics and soil.Save this picture!The pavilion will also act as a supplemental heat source for the apartments (for both heating and hot water). Excess heat from the pavilion and warm earth and plant fragrances are circulated to the apartments below during the winter months. When excess heat is not available or during more temperate weather, filtered intake air is taken directly from the exterior. Intake and exhaust air travels through an energy recovery ventilator (ERV), which will capture 90% of the energy from the ventilated air. The diagram at right shows how fresh air will be captured and sent to the apartments below. This ERV “chimney” or “Urban Snorkel” is a deliberate strategy to capture air up as high as possible to deliver to the apartments. The resultant positive air pressure on the apartments prevents infiltration of the lower quality street level air. Future plans also call for a solar domestic hot water heating system as well as upgrades to the air filtration system to deal with particulates, NO2 and SO2, which are common urban pollutants. Save this picture!elevationAs part of its reconstruction and to demonstrate the owners’ long-standing interest in environmentally friendly building methods and materials, this pavilion integrates many current environmental solutions. The north and south decks use TREX, a high recycled content decking material. Recycled content drywall and recycled ceramic tile are used within the structure. The two outdoor spaces have railings made of recycled content galvanized steel, nontoxic pressure treated framing and TREX decking which provide integrated seating platforms and planting boxes. Greenery is further celebrated through the installation of supersized window boxes at the second floor windows of the building.Save this picture!diagramProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Bjarke Ingels Discusses Darwinism And DesignArticlesVideo: eCloud Sculpture at San Jose International AirportArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/100780/urban-biophillic-pavilion-studio-d%25e2%2580%2599arc Clipboard Save this picture!+ 16 Share Projects Houses CopyHouses, Refurbishment•Pittsburgh, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/100780/urban-biophillic-pavilion-studio-d%25e2%2580%2599arc Clipboard CopyAbout this officestudio d’ARCOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentPittsburghRefurbishmentHousesUnited StatesPublished on January 04, 2011Cite: “Urban Biophillic Pavilion / studio d’ARC” 04 Jan 2011.
