This property adjoins a large lake in a small town situated a few hours from Mexico City. To take full advantage of the relationship with the surroundings, a system of elongated rectangular volumes was used, with one side of each completely open toward the lake. The sloping plot and the amount of surface to be realized led to the creation of three volumen stacked in a zigzag pattern, generating spacious open terraces and irregular, sheltered patios between them.Save this picture!© Paul CzitromRecommended ProductsWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – BronzoFinestra B40DoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorWindowsJansenWindows – Janisol PrimoEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAFrom the street, the residence looks like a traditional construction; the use of roof tiles, wood, natural stone, and the plastered facade with small openings, grants it the regional character that is required by urban planning requirements.

Bob Arum confirms Manny Pacquiao will fight Timothy Bradley this year

first_imgManny Pacquiao’s promoter has revealed that the legendary Filipino will fight Timothy Bradley for a third time and believes he will continue his career after that bout on April 9.There has been much talk of who Pacquiao will take on in what was expected to be the final time he steps into the ring before he turns his attention to a career in politics.Terence Crawford, Amir Khan and Adrien Broner were among those mentioned as possible opponents, but Pacquiao’s promoter Bob Arum says he has opted to face Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in his first fight since losing to Floyd Mayweather Jr in May.“It’s’ a done deal and it’s going to be a third fight against Timothy Bradley,” Arum told the Manila Times. “We took a lot of consideration knowing Bradley has improved a lot as a fighter since the last time they met in 2014.“Bradley is happy about it of course and that’s really a competitive fight for Manny. The report about Adrien Broner fighting Pacquiao is untrue.”Pacquiao, the only man to have won titles in eight different divisions, recently turned 37 but Arum thinks he could fight on after locking horns with Bradley. “It’s not going to be Manny’s last fight because anything could still happen and you know Manny. That’s why we won’t sell it that way. I don’t think it is Manny’s last fight,” Arum added. Bradley came out on top in his first fight between the two on a split decision to take the WBO welterweight belt in June 2012, but Pacquiao recaptured the title last year by earning a unanimous decision.The 32-year-old American drew with Diego Gabriel Chaves after losing to Pacquiao, then came out on top against Jessie Vargas and Brandon Rios this year.–last_img read more

Arsenal dumped out of FA Cup, Leeds shocked

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | FA Cup holders Arsenal were sensationally dumped out of the competition by Nottingham Forest on Sunday, joining Leeds United as big-name casualties on a day of shocks.Elsewhere, West Ham stayed alive with a goalless draw at Shrewsbury and Tottenham scored three goals in eight second-half minutes to see off the challenge of League One side AFC Wimbledon.Championship side Forest revived memories of their glory years under Brian Clough, putting 13-times winners Arsenal to the sword in an incident-packed 4-2 win at the City Ground.Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who made nine changes to the side that drew with Chelsea in the Premier League in midweek, defended his team selection.“We have many players on the edge and we play again on Wednesday,” he said. “When you don’t win the selection is always questioned.“I believe we had an experienced team — eight or nine internationals. It would be easy to think that was the problem.“When you’re against a team like that they’re very difficult to beat. Defensively you cannot afford the mistakes we made.”US international Eric Lichaj opened the scoring for the home side with a header midway through the first half but Per Mertesacker equalised for the away team just three minutes later.However, Forest continued to probe an inexperienced Arsenal line-up and got their reward just before half-time when Lichaj volleyed in spectacularly from the edge of the box.Wenger, serving a touchline ban, was forced to watch powerless from the stands as Rob Holding conceded a penalty that teenager Ben Brereton converted in the 64th minute to stretch the home side’s lead to 3-1.Danny Welbeck gave Arsenal hope with just over 10 minutes to go but Kieran Dowell netted from the penalty spot again to seal victory for the second-tier side over the Premier League visitors.In a breathless final few minutes Forest’s Joe Worrall was sent off but it was too late for Arsenal to take advantage.Nottingham Forest’s caretaker manager Gary Brazil said the result was something the former European champions could build on.“This football club should be playing against the Arsenals of this world, and they should be beating them,” he added.“These fans deserve to be watching Premier League teams and that’s what we’ve got to drive towards.” – Leeds shock –In the early kick-off, on-loan forward Shawn McCoulsky headed in a dramatic 89th-minute winner for Welsh club Newport County to seal a 2-1 victory against 1972 Cup winners Leeds.Leeds had taken an early lead at Rodney Parade when Gaetano Berardi’s deflected long-range shot found the net.But Newport, currently 11th in League Two — the fourth tier of the English game — levelled 14 minutes from time when Leeds defender Conor Shaughnessy sliced into his own net.Infused with fresh belief in front of a passionate Welsh crowd, Newport pressed for a winner, and with a minute to go on-loan substitute McCoulsky rose highest at a corner to head in the decisive goal and send the stadium into raptures.“This is much better beating Championship teams like Leeds,” said Newport manager Michael Flynn. “I don’t want to be winning relegation battles, I want to be winning FA Cup ties and climbing the table.”– Hart saves –West Ham had goalkeeper Joe Hart to thank for keeping them in the Cup with a 0-0 draw after an uninspired performance against Shrewsbury Town of the third tier.The England goalkeeper, returning to the club where he started his career, made a fine save from Mat Sadler with about 10 minutes to go until the interval and repeated the trick against Alex Rodman.“The players are a little bit deflated almost,” said Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Hurst.“But we have a replay to look forward to,” he added. “We know it will be tough. They will be at home, more comfortable in their own stadium.”At Wembley, Harry Kane broke the deadlock against AFC Wimbledon with just under half an hour to go before Kane again and Jan Vertonghen made it 3-0 to put the game beyond the reach of the visitors.On Saturday, League Two Coventry City sent Premier League side Stoke City crashing out, prompting the sacking of Mark Hughes.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Girls Encouraged to Consider Roles in Government

first_imgStory and photos by Jenna O’Donnell | TINTON FALLS – On Friday, several dozen high school girls sat down and chose an issue they cared about, then stood up and argued for it in front of a hypothetical school board.One of the issues was inspired by a team member’s frustration at her local high school, where the boys’ soccer fields are far superior to the one where the girls play. The team rallied around the cause and made an argument for a literal equal playing field.“We are proposing a new field that will benefit the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams equally,” a student from the group argued. Their platform: Women for the WIN.Running and Winning was the theme of the day­ – and the name of the event – an annual workshop held at Monmouth Regional High School, during which high school girls spend a nonpartisan day hearing from women in government before breaking into groups to take on the issues themselves.“Girls don’t always see role models in government,” said Marian Wattenbarger, a member of the American Association of University Woman (AAUW) of Northern Monmouth County who co-chaired the workshop on March 17. “So this is an opportunity.” AAUW, along with The League of Women Voters of Greater Red Bank, the Junior League of Monmouth County and the Red Bank Chapter of Hadassah sponsored the event, which is now in its eleventh year.“We started the day with the statistics of how poorly represented women are in government,” said Wattenbarger.That statistic shows that while more than half of the United States population is made up of women, the number of women in elected positions are far surpassed by men, particularly in New Jersey.“It does not reflect us,” said Linda Bricker, a member of the Junior League of Monmouth County and a chairperson on the steering committee for the event. “We’re just not represented the way we should be.”Workshop organizers would like to change that status quo, and they hope this event will inspire young women to take an interest in public life and politics, and give them the confidence to seek out leadership positions.Preparing their arguments for their chosen issue were (clockwise from left) Claire Hayes, 17, of Rumson Fair Haven High School; Rachel Lam, 17, of Middletown High School South; Deja Caton, 16, of Matawan Regional High School, and Shannon Ross, 17, of Ocean Township High School.During the workshop, 60 young women from ten local high schools gathered at Monmouth Regional High School to learn about how to get involved in public life from women who successfully won positions as mayors, councilwomen, county clerks, assemblywomen, state senators and more. Students spent the morning interviewing female leaders, including New Jersey State Senator Jennifer Beck, Assemblywoman Joann Downey, and Janice Fuller, Chief of Staff for Congressman Frank Pallone, on what it takes to run for office, how to face their fears and overcome challenges and how to choose positions on the issues.The girls then had an opportunity to take a position of their own. Students broke up into small groups for a “Finding Your Voice” exercise during which they chose an issue to be presented to a fictional school board. After taking a position, accounting for the pros and cons of their argument and proposing changes, the teams stood up and campaigned on platforms that included “Less HW=Less Stress,” “Press for Equal Dress,” “Earth Without Art is Just Eh,” and “Less Stress Leads to Success,” among others.“The only thing in common was that the issue was coming before a school board,” said Bricker. “The idea is to pick something in your community, which is your school, decide what your issues are and how you are going to make your argument.”Girls argued, sometimes passionately, for less restrictive dress codes at their schools, more free time to pursue their dreams and personal interests, and proposed a less stressful high school experience for overworked students.One group, arguing for more focus on creativity, asked their “school board” to protect funding for the arts.“We’re asking you to put a spotlight on creativity,” one student said. “Because you can memorize all the words in the dictionary, but if you lack creativity you cannot put them together in a sentence.”For organizers, the group sessions are a key part of the day in helping students from all different backgrounds find common ground and work together on an issue. They asked participating schools to send not the girls who were already in student leadership positions, but the ones who had the potential to lead.At the annual Running and Winning workshop, high school girls were encouraged to “find their voice.”“We look for the girl who, through this type of experience, might find her voice,” Bricker said, noting that her own daughter, who participated in the workshop several years prior, left with the confidence to run for student government at her large university. “We hope this kind of a day might tap into something.”Young women finished the day with a new grasp on the possibilities that lie ahead. Claire Haynes, 16, of Rumson Fair Haven High School said she most enjoyed speaking to women leaders during the morning session.“It made me want to get involved,” Haynes said, of the experience. “And It taught me a lot about local government. I didn’t know too much about it before.”This article was first published in the March 23-30, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
