The building has 26 floors with 523 rooms. Most of the room suitable for 2 people with various facilities such as living area, library, canteen, washing room, and multipurpose room.Save this picture!© Panoramic StudioSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Panoramic StudioThe site of the project was surrounded by 4 existing buildings of doctors’ and nurses’ dormitories. There were 3 high-rise buildings around the site which was a thoroughfare for vehicles to pass by. There was a low-rise building that stood in the middle of the site which had been demolished to be replaced by this new dormitory.Save this picture!© Panoramic StudioOur architect team decided to design the layout of the new dormitory to interact with 3 existing buildings in a way that creates an enclosed courtyard, separated from the crowded, busy atmosphere of the hospital. The ground floor of the building is an open space connecting the main road with the courtyard, metaphorically act as a gateway into this quiet and peaceful residential area.Save this picture!© Panoramic StudioRegarding our research, most of the nurses prefer naturally ventilated rooms to air-conditioned rooms. Planting trees on the balcony are also popular among the nurses. Based on the above information, the main concept of the design to meet the needs conceived. By analyzing a typical dormitory with a double-load corridor arrangement, our team realized that there are 2 problems, lack of natural light and poor indoor ventilation.Save this picture!© Panoramic StudioTo solve the above problems, we separate 2 sides of the building to make 2 single-load corridor arrangements with a gap in the middle. This design decision allows more natural light into the corridor and creates a ventilation chimney in the middle of the building that facilitates ventilation from basement to rooftop. We design a big air channel on the 1st floor and at the center of the building. And we also design another big air channel on the rooftop to create a stack effect, draws air from the basement up to the top. The design of the channel on the facade got inspiration from the “UNA-LOME DAENG”, the original design of Thai Red Cross Society’s logo.   Save this picture!13th Floor PlanSave this picture!© Panoramic StudioFor the design of the room, we designed the entrance door to be a double door including a solid door and insect screen. When the solid door and the window at the balcony opened, the air from the hallway can flow through the room. The typical room layout is divided into 2 parts. The 1st part adjacent to the corridor is a sharing space for both roommates including a pantry and restroom with a sliding door to separate the area from the bedroom. The sliding door will create privacy for the resident when they decide to leave the solid door open to let natural airflow through the room. The 2nd part is the bedroom for 2 residents. Each bed placing on the opposite side of the room to create a private space for each resident while sharing the walkway in the middle leads to the balcony.Save this picture!© Panoramic StudioSince the dormitory is close to other nearby buildings, we then design the balcony to have a slated angle. This will avoid direct sightline to other buildings to maintain the privacy of residents. The zigzag balcony allowing more sunlight to the area which suitable for planting trees and drying clothes according to the needs of the resident.Save this picture!South ElevationThe design of the railing with vertical aluminum fin and sunshade with a perforated aluminum sheet will conceal untidy elements such as drying rack, air conditioner condensing unit, and washing machine. We choose aluminum as materials for the facade since they are durable and easy to maintain. This unique facade and balcony composition create the pattern of light and shadow that reflected the simple systematic design of the building while concealing various complicated functional requirements of the users.      Save this picture!© Panoramic StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessPeriscope Toilet / Hexia ArchitectsSelected ProjectsUdan Crematorium / d6thD design studioSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:13 Rama IV Rd, Khwaeng Pathum Wan, Khet Pathum Wan, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10330, ThailandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Manifestación masiva mata ley anti salud

first_imgLo hicimos. La resistencia sirve. La gente en todo el país luchó contra un proyecto de ley de salud draconiana y detuvo su paso. A través de reuniones de ayuntamientos, protestas callejeras creativas, medios de comunicación social, anuncios en vallas publicitarias, peticiones, campañas por teléfono, correo electrónico y cartas, y otras más, la gente rechazó el intento del ala derecha de socavar el seguro médico para millones.Hubo una rebelión en todo el país contra el proyecto de ley “cuidado de la salud” “tomar de los pobres y dar a los ricos” de Trump / Ryan / Price.Un estado de ánimo de lucha recorrió el país. Frente a la Casa Blanca, 24 personas fueron arrestadas por desobediencia civil el 23 de marzo, representando a los 24 millones que perderían el seguro bajo la ley del gobierno. Marchas y manifestaciones tuvieron lugar en Washington ese día como parte de una jornada nacional de acción de organizaciones de base y varios sindicatos.Grupos comunitarios y de derechos de inmigrantes enviaron a personas de varios estados. Estudiantes, trabajadoras/es de la salud y personas con discapacidades se manifestaron. Las protestas continuaron en otras 40 ciudades, muchas fuera de las oficinas de los miembros derechistas de la Cámara. Dos días antes, 300 personas se manifestaron acostándose en el suelo aparentando estar muertas frente a la oficina del multimillonario representante Darrell Issa, en la ciudad de Vista, California.La AARP (Asociación de Personas Jubiladas) también tuvo acciones en Washington. El Sindicato Nacional de Enfermeras Unidas organizó contra el propuesto proyecto de ley. Las organizaciones de defensa de la mujere y en pro de opciones reproductivas, como Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America y UltraViolet se movilizaron. Las/os consumidores, incluyendo personas de la tercera edad, organizaciones comunitarias y de libertades civiles, médicos, hospitales y muchas más fuerzas tomaron medidas.Bonanza para los ricos, desastre para millonesEl ala derecha ha tratado de revocar la Ley del Cuidado de Salud a Bajo Precio (ACA por sus siglas en ingles) desde el día que fue firmado el 23 de marzo de 2010. Los políticos y los medios derechistas han golpeado el “Obamacare” cada día desde entonces. El presidente Donald Trump declaró la guerra a la ley y juró durante toda su campaña electoral “revocarla y reemplazarla”.Debido al ACA, más de 20 millones de personas ahora tienen seguro de salud, muchas/os por la expansión de Medicaid en 31 estados y Washington, D.C., y de los subsidios federales para las/os trabajadores de bajos ingresos para comprar un seguro.Funcionarios de 19 estados liderados por republicanos todavía rehúsan expandir Medicaid. El ACA también ordenó que los aseguradores privados cubrieran los beneficios esenciales de salud. Cada plan debe incluir ciertos servicios, incluyendo cuidado de maternidad y recién nacidos, servicios de emergencia, tratamiento de abuso de sustancias y mamografías.Entonces el presidente de la Cámara, Paul Ryan, en 2017 con Trump y Tom Price, secretario de Salud y Servicios Humanos, se apresuraron a obtener la terrible Ley Americana de Salud (AHCA) aprobada antes de que sus costos y efectos fueran analizados por la Oficina de Presupuesto del Congreso (CBO). Pero no fueron lo suficientemente rápidos.La CBO dijo que la ley ofrecería miles de millones de dólares en recortes de impuestos a las aseguradoras de salud, compañías farmacéuticas, inversores y otros, alcanzando casi $1 billón en 10 años. El proyecto de ley habría eliminado los impuestos que pagan por los subsidios para las/os trabajadores de bajos ingresos. (New York Times, 15 de marzo)La propuesta de Trump / Ryan / Price era realmente un proyecto de ley contra la salud. Con ello, dijo la CBO, 14 millones de personas perderían el seguro en el primer año, y un total de 24 millones perderían la cobertura en 2026. Medicaid perdería $880 mil millones en 10 años.La AHCA fue una declaración de guerra contra trabajadoras/es, personas de bajos ingresos y oprimidas/os, mujeres y adultas/os mayores.Las/os adultos mayores habrían sido penalizados ya que la AHCA permitiría a las compañías de seguros cobrar hasta cinco veces más por las primas que a las/os jóvenes. AARP dijo que una persona de 64 años que gana $15,000 al año podría pagar primas anuales de $8,400. El proyecto de ley habría debilitado Medicare y cambiado los costos de Medicaid a los estados, poniendo así en peligro a cada destinataria/o. (NY Times, 10 de marzo)Esta ley contra la mujer habría retirado el financiamiento a Planned Parenthood, que recibe $500 millones al año en fondos federales para proporcionar servicios esenciales de prevención, detección y anticonceptivos a millones de mujeres.Este proyecto de ley era tan impopular que una encuesta de la Universidad de Quinnipiac del 23 de marzo dijo que tenía sólo un 17 por ciento de aprobación, y que uno de cada siete residentes estadounidenses dijo que les haría perder la cobertura.Matar el proyectoEl representante Ryan retiró el proyecto de ley el 24 de marzo, justo antes de que la Cámara de Representantes votara, ya que no había suficientes votos para su paso. Trump había querido el voto ese día. Al intentar ganar, la Casa Blanca incluso prometió al ultraderechista “Caucus de la Libertad” de la Cámara (antes Tea Party) desechar el mandato esencial de los beneficios de salud del ACA, incluyendo cobertura para el cuidado de la maternidad y mamografías. ¡Una sala llena de oficiales masculinos estaba lista para sacrificar el cuidado de la salud de las mujeres! Incluso con eso, los ultraconservadores no se apaciguaron.El Caucus de la Libertad se opuso al proyecto porque no iba lo suficientemente lejos para destruir todos los aspectos del ACA. Muchos miembros de la Cámara Republicana y todos los Demócratas no votarían por ello porque vieron la movilización de masas y sintieron la presión de las/os manifestantes exigiendo “maten la ley”. Algunos políticos anticiparon consecuencias duraderas si votaban a favor; sus constituyentes nunca lo olvidarían. Aquellos cuyos estados habían expandido Medicaid estaban presionados para votar por ella.El resultado es una victoria para mujeres, trabajadoras/es, adultos/as mayores, personas de bajos ingresos y las comunidades negra, latina y todas las comunidades oprimidas. La gente de todo el país dijo un rotundo “No!” al recorte de Planned Parenthood, a los recortes de impuestos para multimillonarios, mientras 24 millones perderían seguro de salud.La ACA sigue siendo un programa capitalista por el cual millones de personas están obligadas a comprar un seguro de salud en el mercado, aunque muchas/os trabajadores de bajos ingresos reciben subsidios federales para hacerlo.Sin embargo, el 9,1 por ciento de la población todavía no tiene seguro. (NY Times, 15 de septiembre) Algunas aseguradoras cobran primas y deducibles que son demasiado altos para muchas/os consumidores. Además, las subvenciones federales se ven amenazadas por una demanda pendiente de los reaccionarios.“Medicare para todas/os”El lema “Medicare para todas/os” está siendo planteado nuevamente por el movimiento progresista que presiona para un programa de seguro de salud con un solo pagador. Esto sería mucho más fácil y realmente menos costoso de administrar y potencialmente podría cubrir a todo el mundo en EUA. El programa necesitaría algunos ajustes y adiciones, pero sería una mejora sobre el sistema de la salud con fines de lucro y productos farmacéuticos. Por esto vale la pena luchar y es posible bajo el capitalismo.La lucha por el cuidado de la salud demuestra que el sistema capitalista necesita ser descartado. ¡El cuidado de la salud es un derecho humano! Se debe proporcionar para todas/os, no en la capacidad de pago y para maximizar ganancias. Cuba socialista asegura que la atención médica, incluyendo los medicamentos, sean accesibles a todo su pueblo. A nadie se le niega por falta de fondos.La lucha no ha terminado, pero la gente está envalentonada por esta victoria. Neil Gorsuch, un aliado de grandes empresas, es el nominado de Trump al Tribunal Supremo. El jefe de HHS Tom Price, que tiene jurisdicción sobre Medicare y Medicaid, ha tenido recortado ambos programas. Detesta la ACA y se opone vehementemente a muchos beneficios de seguro, incluyendo el acceso a anticonceptivos gratuitos para las mujeres a través de Medicaid y todos los planes privados. Tanto Gorsuch como Price deben ser objetados.Esta administración quiere revertir nuestros derechos. La reforma fiscal y el presupuesto inhumano de Trump en favor de los negocios están en el horizonte. Todas/os debemos permanecer vigilantes y listas/os para protestar contra cualquier ataque a programas esenciales del gobierno. Cada golpe de la clase dominante debe ser contrarrestado por una lucha unida.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bram Kohlhausen: moving forward

first_imgAnother series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Twitter Kacey Bowen Kacey Bowen ReddIt Kacey Bowen Twitter TCU vs Georgia: “Playing to win” Facebook Support for seniors on Senior Day Kacey Bowen + posts TCU falls to Georgia in AutoZone Liberty Bowl Kacey Bowen ReddIt Linkedin TCU quarterback Bram Kohlhausen (6) passes during the fourth quarter against Oklahoma on Nov. 21, 2015. Kramer claims 100th career win printTCU quarterback Bram Kohlhausen always looks to the future.He transferred, twice, trying to find the right university. He didn’t give up when the Frogs were down 31-0 in the Alamo Bowl against Oregon. And now, he’s looking into continuing his football career after graduation.Kohlhausen, who led TCU to one of the greatest comebacks in Bowl history, said he hopes to play overseas after he graduates in May. While he said playing in Europe is a possibility, general managers in Japan have also made him offers to play.“I’m kind of like a yes man,” Kohlhausen said. “So, if someone tells me I can go play in Europe for a year, I don’t see why not.”The unlikely storyUntil the Alamo Bowl, Kohlhausen didn’t have much playing time at TCU, or any place else. His collegiate career started at the University of Houston, where he was redshirted. In 2013, he transferred to Los Angeles Harbor College and saw action in four games.At TCU, he had to wait his turn… again.“I wasn’t the starter, I was a fourth-string guy,” Kohlhausen said.He didn’t get discouraged.He stayed positive and just kept looking forward to the next practice. The next drill. The next play.That mindset was on display when he made his first and only start for the Frogs: in the Valero Alamo Bowl.Before the Bowl game, Kohlhausen had played in seven TCU games.He stepped up after starting quarterback Trevone Boykin went down with an ankle injury this season. He saw major playing time against Kansas and Oklahoma.Bram Kohlhausen’s father, Bill, died in November of melanoma.In the Nov. 21 game against the Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma, Kohlhausen entered with the Frogs down 17 points. He nearly led the Frogs all the way back, but the comeback stalled with a failed 2-point conversion.The miraculous comebackThroughout the season, football wasn’t first in Kohlhausen’s mind.His father, Bill, was being treated for melanoma, but still managed to attend TCU football games.Bill Kohlhausen saw his son play Oct. 3 against the University of Texas at Austin. That would be the last time. He died in November.Two days before the Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2, head coach Gary Patterson suspended Boykin after he was arrested for getting into a bar fight and striking a police officer.Kohlhausen had to step up.Waking up, finding out you’re starting, only having one practice left, facing the No. 15 team in the nation… “it’s overwhelming,” Kohlhausen said.Many TCU fans wrote off the game before kick-off.After the first half, TCU was down 31-0 and had only mustered 133 yards of offense. Many thought Patterson would make the switch to redshirt freshman quarterback Foster Sawyer after halftime.But Kohlhausen came back.He converted on a 26-yard pass to wide receiver Jaelan Austin to give the Frogs’ their first touchdown of the game. From then on out, it was a whirlwind of momentum: a fumble recovery off of Oregon’s kickoff return; a run into the end zone by Kohlhausen after he dove for the score on the previous play right; a field goal by Jaden Oberkrom; and another scoring drive on a 2-yard run by Aaron Green.The Frogs scored 31 unanswered points to send the game into overtime. They won 47-41 after three overtimes.Kohlhausen said he has watched the second half multiple times. He still doesn’t know how they did it.“Pieced together,” Kohlhausen said. “It was a perfect story.”And he’s right. His MVP performance in the Alamo Bowl was such a “perfect story,” that Disney reached out to TCU about putting the story on the big screen.But the movie proposal won’t be decided upon until Kohlhausen graduates in May. Even then, they will revisit the idea, said Mark Cohen, director of athletics media relations.“Nothing is set in stone by any means,” Cohen said. “It’s just a preliminary inquiry.”TCU quarterback Bram Kohlhausen (6) runs for a touchdown against Oregon during the third overtime of the Alamo Bowl NCAA college football game, Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016, in San Antonio. TCU won 47-41 in triple overtime.Never giving upPlaying football overseas isn’t all that glamorous, but Kohlhausen said he isn’t worried about that.“[European football] small league that doesn’t pay very much, but it pays for your housing, transportation [and] food,” he said.Even if football or a movie isn’t in the future, Kohlhausen said one thing he will take away from his career at TCU is the family aspect of football and the friends he made along the way.It wasn’t just the banter in and out of the locker-room — it was the confidence his teammates and coaches instilled in one another, he said.One of the most important things Kohlhausen said they taught him: “never give up.”“I don’t think you can ever give up in life,” he said.Kohlhausen takes the advice and teaches it to the children he mentors through his internship with the Fort Worth Youth Advocate program.He said the kids in the program face difficult or nonexistent family lives, such as parents who don’t speak English or struggle with drug addiction. To them, it might be the worst thing in the world to get an “F” in seventh-grade math, but Kohlhausen said he reassures them that everything will be okay.“I just have to be there and mentor them,” Kohlhausen said.Along with being a mentor, Kohlhausen said he finally has enough time to enjoy being a regular student. It also helps that, following the Alamo Bowl, TCU gave Kohlhausen a full scholarship for the spring semester.With no more football practices, he is finally able to take afternoon classes. It’s also nice to be able to sleep in, he joked.As his time at TCU comes to an end, Kohlhausen said he continues to look forward. He also makes sure to never look back.“I knew there was always something else out there for me,” he said. “I found it here at TCU.” Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Facebook Previous articleTCU Rhino Initiative charges forward to stop poachingNext articleThe109: senior minister at University Christian Church announces resignation Kacey Bowen RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Kacey is a junior journalism major from Friendswood, Texas.

Additionally, he contributes to the MReport, DS News’ sister site. Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Foreclosures continue to be a national problem, and one metro’s City Attorney thinks a large part of the problem came from discrimination. Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer is suing one of the nation’s largest banks, JPMorgan Chase, alleging the bank engaged in discriminatory lending.The city contends the mega-bank caused a wave of foreclosures that diminished the city’s property tax revenues and increased the need for costly city services. Allegedly, the bank engaged in a pattern of imposing different terms or conditions to consumers on a discriminatory basis, or “redlining.””JPMorgan engaged in reverse redlining, and continues to engage in said conduct, by extending mortgage credit on predatory terms to minority borrowers in minority neighborhoods in Los Angeles on the basis of the race or ethnicity of its residents,” the complaint said.Recently, new litigation against JP Morgan Chase was bolstered by a court ruling that denied a motion by Wells Fargo to dismiss a similar complaint made by the city. Feuer sued Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and Citigroup in December.”L.A. continues to suffer from the foreclosure crisis—from blight in our neighborhoods to diminished revenue for basic City services,” Feuer said. “We’re fighting to hold those we allege are responsible to account and to help bring back every community in our City.”The City of Los Angeles is seeking damages for reduced property tax revenues resulting from the decrease in value of foreclosed properties that are often left neglected and vacant, resulting in surrounding properties to lose value. The root cause of the foreclosures, according to the city, is from discriminatory lending practices by JP Morgan Chase.The suit also seeks damages for the increased cost of city services resulting from foreclosures.”When banks engage in such discriminatory conduct, the misconduct has profound financial consequences for the cities in which mortgaged properties exist, and banks should be responsible for those financial consequences,” the city’s complaint read.
