The Project emerges as an economic constructive resolution alternative facing the emergence of commercial modular architecture manufactured in series, efficiently resolving the client’s program needs, with the rational use of materials and proposing interior spaces of higher spatial quality than a prefabricated work.Save this picture!© Diego Aravena S.Volumetrically, the house considered as a horizontal pavilion that rests silently on the ground.

Inwardly, the space is proposed as a white box, neat, free of elements; an interior that lives under the double slopes of its deck, which does not seek to be pretentious, but rather harmonic and diaphanous.Save this picture!© Diego Aravena S.Constructively, the house is proposed in a modular form to be assembled in a completely wooden area over a continuous concrete slab, which accelerates the construction processes, makes the production proposal efficient and allows the greatest material economy in virtue of a good result.Save this picture!© Diego Aravena S.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe One Big Problem That Advocates of Copenhagen-Style Urbanism Often OverlookArticlesIs This the World’s Largest Mural?Architecture News Share CopyAbout this officeGonzalo Martínez OportusOfficeFollowPablo Campano SotomayorOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPuchuncaviPuchuncavíChilePublished on July 12, 2017Cite: “PA House / Gonzalo Martínez Oportus + Pablo Campano Sotomayor” 12 Jul 2017.

Photo Credit: TCU Polo Facebook Page“I’d say TCU polo is known pretty well throughout our division,” said the sophomore. “We’ve had a pretty strong team for the past few years. So it’s nice to show up to tournaments and everyone knows who we are and they’re expecting us.”Browning said she knows from experience that the club has become a great alternative to riders who just want to enjoy polo and do not want to make it a full-time investment.“I was gonna ride for TCU on their NCAA team,” said Browning. “But I just didn’t want it to be as of a job. I love having a passion for riding and wanting to do it for fun.”The Club practices and has its home game about an hour from campus at Presetonwood Polo & Country Club in Oak Point, Texas.For more information on how to join the TCU Polo club, you can reach them on their Facebook page or sign up at the next activity fair held by TCU at the beginning of each semester.

Popular West 7th Street bar has liquor license suspended after breaking COVID-19 guidelines

first_imgMarissa Stacy is a journalism major from Indianapolis, Indiana. Marissa enjoys traveling to new places, spending time with friends and finding great places to eat around Fort Worth. TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printVarsity Tavern had its liquor license suspended for 30 days after breaking social distancing guidelines last week.An emergency order issued by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) said that minimum health requirements were not being met “on or about” Feb. 4 at Varsity. “Permittee failed to operate its business in accordance with social distancing requirements and minimum standard health protocols recommended by Department of State Health Services,” the order stated. The suspension is effective immediately. Both employees and patrons were seen not wearing face coverings, according to the order.The findings went against Governor Gregg Abbott’s executive orders requiring that people wear a face mask while in a commercial entity and that restaurants have less than 51% of their sales coming from alcoholic beverages. Patrons must also be eating or drinking while sitting. TABC determined “that the continued operation of permittee’s business would constitute a continuing threat to the public welfare.” There have now been 198,635 COVID-19 cases in Tarrant County, according to the Tarrant County Health Department’s website. Of those cases, 96,684 cases have been located in Fort Worth. One other business in DFW also had their liquor license suspended but TBAC could not release its name since the order has not yet been served.Varsity Tavern has not commented on the current suspension.

Instead of deterring him, his first death threats in 2006 just convinced him to keep going. He was threatened again on 1 September 2011 and branded as a government opponent but he coolly continued to defend the Congolese media’s right to work freely. When M23 rebels threatened a journalist in October 2012, he loudly denounced this attempt at intimidation, to the point that M23’s leaders issued an apology. On 3 May 2013, Journalist in Danger issued a loud appeal to “break the chains of censorship and self-censorship” – a bold message in a country where, despite superficial undertakings, journalists are constantly hounded.

Straight from the horse’s mouth

first_imgNewsStraight from the horse’s mouthBy admin – January 16, 2013 754 Facebook Print Linkedin Twitter Advertisementcenter_img Email WhatsApp A TARGETED study carried out by the Food Standards Authority of Ireland has revealed that a number of beef burger and beef meals available from retail outlets in Ireland contained horse DNA. Following the revelations within the study, the FSAI states this raises concerns in relation to the traceability of meat ingredients and products entering the food chain. A total of 27 beef burger products were analysed with 10 of the 27 products (37 per cent) testing positive for horse DNA and 23 (85 per cent) testing positive for pig DNA.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In addition, 31 beef meal products (cottage pie, beef curry pie, lasagne, etc) were analysed of which 21 were positive for pig DNA and all were negative for horse DNA. Traces of horse DNA were also detected in batches of raw ingredients, including some imported from The Netherlands and Spain.The beef burger products which tested positive for horse DNA were produced by two processing plants (Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods) in Ireland and one plant (Dalepak Hambleton) in the UK. They were on sale in Tesco, Dunnes Stores, Lidl, Aldi and Iceland.  In nine of the ten beef burger samples from these retailers, horse DNA was found at very low levels.However, in one sample from Tesco, the level of horse DNA indicated that horsemeat accounted for approximately 29 per cent relative to the beef content. The FSAI is working with the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and the processing plants and retailers involved. The retailers have stated that they are removing all implicated batches from sale. In addition, Silvercrest Foods has informed the FSAI that it is withdrawing all products from sale and replacing them with new products.According to Prof Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI, whilst these findings pose no risk to public health they do raise some concerns. He states: “The products we have identified as containing horse DNA and/or pig DNA do not pose any food safety risk and consumers should not be worried. Consumers who have purchased any of the implicated products can return them to their retailer.”“Whilst, there is a plausible explanation for the presence of pig DNA in these products due to the fact that meat from different animals is processed in the same meat plants, there is no clear explanation at this time for the presence of horse DNA in products emanating from meat plants that do not use horsemeat in their production process.  In Ireland, it is not in our culture to eat horsemeat and therefore, we do not expect to find it in a burger.  Likewise, for some religious groups or people who abstain from eating pig meat, the presence of traces of pig DNA is unacceptable”, concluded Prof Reilly.
