Adelante y hacia arriba

Los edificios altos que se proyectan en la sala de estar por televisión y están enmarcados en una pantalla de 21 pulgadas todavía tienen el poder de hacer sudar las palmas. Es su gran tamaño en relación con lo que sucede a su alrededor: la forma en que los trabajadores del Millennium Dome en Greenwich se ven como hormigas cuando la cámara se desplaza a 850 pies de Canary Wharf, o la forma inquietante en que el Támesis parece ondear la cortina curva de Millbank Tower. pared. Entonces, cuando el nuevo director juvenil del Museo de Londres, el Dr. Simon Thurley, hace un artículo a la cámara en la serie One Foot in the Past Heritage de BBC 2 desde la plataforma de limpiadores de ventanas suspendida a 600 pies fuera del Centro Financiero Internacional, sientes el miedo de el saltador de bungee.

Pero a medida que sus cámaras se acercan vertiginosamente al horizonte de Londres el 27 de agosto, One Foot in the Past señala dos dedos al vestíbulo del patrimonio y da un paso gigante para que la humanidad defienda la rechazada Millennium Tower, diseñada por Foster Associates. Con 1.427 pies, habría sido el edificio más alto de Europa, el doble de la altura de su vecino de la ciudad, el Centro Financiero Internacional (anteriormente la torre NatWest) a 600 pies, y el doble de su volumen.

Pero puede que sea demasiado tarde. Si el cliente, Alan Winter, presidente de London Millennium Tower Ltd, tiene que construir una versión pigmea rediseñada, que vio por primera vez hace dos días, la alquilará por razones comerciales a una sola institución financiera y dejará que los inquilinos lo nombren. Por lo tanto, la no tan imponente Millennium Tower podría ser, digamos, el edificio del Deutsche Bank.

Las ciudades siempre compiten arquitectónicamente entre sí y siempre está por encima de la altura. Por un momento embriagador, Londres tenía algo planeado en la escala de Manhattan. Pero no por mucho tiempo. English Heritage y la City of London Corporation explicaron que la torre original de Norman Foster era "un paso demasiado lejos". Así que su cliente les pidió a los arquitectos que produjeran algunas ideas nuevas.

El plan A era cortar un tercio de la torre sin cambiar su diseño. A nadie le gustó esta versión castrada, y menos al arquitecto. Ahora el Sr. Winter tiene que adivinar, con su tablero, cuál de las otras dos versiones es más probable que obtenga el permiso de planificación y sea comercialmente viable.

El alto y delgado todavía puede llamarse con razón Torre del Milenio. Esta supermodelo mide poco menos de mil pies de altura, un poco más alta que Canary Wharf. El corto y gordo, que Winter admite que "no es tan tremendamente grande y hermoso, pero aún es reconocible como un diseño de Foster con su frente de vidrio curvo", mide solo 380 pies y todavía no tiene nombre. La versión que elijan se mostrará a English Heritage y City of London Corporation antes de enviarse para obtener el permiso de planificación a finales de este año.

Una de las cosas que a todos les gustó de la Millennium Tower fue que no se cerraba por la noche. Restaurantes, gimnasio, plataformas de observación públicas, tiendas, personas que viven allí lo mantendrían animado. Winter dice: "Creíamos que a una escala de aproximadamente 1,6 millones de pies cuadrados, con entre ocho y diez mil personas trabajando en el edificio, el uso mixto era justificable en términos comerciales. Pero en la versión más pequeña, que será reservada a una importante institución financiera, no habrá ninguna ".

Todavía se está considerando la viabilidad del uso mixto dentro de la torre de 1.000 pies. Si se construye, será un edificio especulativo para un gran número de alquiler más pequeños.

En última instancia, el diseño ha sido impulsado por English Heritage, el asesor oficial de conservación del gobierno, y City Corporation. En los malos días de Bottomley, English Heritage propuso que ningún edificio debería tener más de cien metros (unos 320 pies), solo dos vueltas de una piscina olímpica. Cuando, a fines de mayo, English Heritage organizó un simposio llamado Planning Change in a World City, para que los impulsores y agitadores expresaran sus opiniones sobre edificios altos, puentes y una mejor arquitectura, Jocelyn Stevens, presidenta, dijo:" Creemos que el buen diseño no debe tener nada que temer de la opinión informada y el diálogo constructivo "Así que sabe que el consenso sobre las torres fue que son cosas buenas en el lugar correcto, preferiblemente en grupos, y que deberían tener un uso mixto. De lo contrario, los revisionistas tendrán a todos trabajando en Henley o Croydon.

Quizás Simon Thurley se gane a los terratenientes en la serie de la BBC. Sostiene que está en el lugar correcto para nuevos rascacielos escultóricos, junto a la torre NatWest y el edificio Lloyd's de 12 pisos de tamaño modesto. Incluso Sir Christopher Wren habría aprobado el plan de la ciudad, nos asegura.

Thurley también que quiere dejar constancia de que nuestros antepasados habrían admirado la Torre del Milenio en lugar de oponerse. Los londinenses en la Edad Media estaban igualmente ansiosos por construir altos, no solo 121 iglesias para llegar al cielo, sino la catedral medieval de San Pablo, que se encontraba a 468 pies de altura antes de que el Gran Incendio la destruyera. El diseño original de Wren para el nuevo St Paul's estaba coronado por una aguja de 400 pies. El que finalmente construyó mide 365 pies.

Cada generación ha construido para abrumar a la última. Una torre en el techo de Selfridges, diseñada en 1918 por Philip Tilden, la habría llevado a la asombrosa cantidad de 560 pies, mientras que los Salones y Torre Monumentales Imperiales, diseñados en 1904 por John Pollard Seddon y Edward Beckitt Lamb para encajar entre las Casas del Parlamento. y la Abadía de Westminster, tenía 500 pies. Pero las alturas de los edificios se limitaron al alcance de la escalera de un bombero. Mientras Chicago y Nueva York despegaban, Londres siguió decepcionando a sus visitantes.

Un ejemplo genuino de un rascacielos transatlántico fue ideado por el equipo de la BBC. Al lado del Ritz, Devonshire House, construida en 1928 por una empresa de Nueva York, Carrera &Hastings, es una plantilla para rascacielos con su elegante cima, medio repetitivo y grandiosa elevación de la calle. Pero tiene solo nueve pisos de altura.

Cuando las leyes de planificación modernas se aplicaron por primera vez a los edificios altos en el Reino Unido, era la década de 1960, una época en la que los desarrolladores codiciosos llegaban a acuerdos y las multinacionales imponían condiciones: el Hilton no abriría en Londres a menos que construyera a lo grande.

La versión de los noventa de la planificación fragmentada está diseñada por comité, un enfoque que nunca funciona. Foster's Millennium Tower, demasiado alta, corta un poco aquí, agrega un poco allí, redefine el uso, ha proporcionado un ejemplo castigador. Pase lo que pase, se diluirá de su brillante visión original del siglo XXI.

New! Creative Ideas on Choosing Your Window Covering Style
New! Creative Ideas on Choosing Your Window Covering Style
Window coverings have a process on how you should choose your window curtains and drapes. You have three basic choices to decide from on what window treatment is best for your homes decor. You first have to decide whether you want informal or formal window coverings? Secondly unlined or lined? And thirdly the style and type of heading desired. After you have decided on the type of window treatment you are looking for you can start to finalize the design. Window coverings are influenced by several elements, which include the function of the space, the style of the architecture of the home, and the window treatment preferences of the homeowner. The resulting factor is the same window design can be treated very differently depending on the person's taste. Imagine a dining room that has a bay window. This type of window style is usually a multi layered floor length window treatment - basically it's a formal window covering. If your taste is a more casual laid-back style you may introduce an informal appearance of café curtains with some sill length and some tied back side panels.What is a full formal window treatment? A formal window covering usually will have two or three layers. The first layer may be the casement curtain and will be installed within your Windows trim area. Usually you would use a sheer, solid or maybe a lace panel that will lay straight or either gathered at the top. Over draperies usually called just draperies will be your second layer. Generally they will cover the trim and window and if there is room left stretched further to each side or even the area that is above your window. Optionally the third layer of your full formal window treatment will be a valance this is also known as pelnet that horizontally runs across the top of your window and will cover the curtain or drapery heading. Another piece of the formal window treatment is a hard valance, also known as a lanbre-quin or a cornice. It is normally made with wood, which is then covered with upholstery or some fabric. To some people by not using the third treatment it will appear like the window covering is unfinished but in all sense this depends on the taste and style that you are trying to obtain. By using heavy but curious fabrics which would include brocades, Tapestries, silks, Damasks and velvet you will enhance the prestige of the formal treatment. The downside of these fabrics is that they will require cleaning from professionals every couple of years. What is an Informal window treatment?An informal window treatment can consist of one or two basic layers or you may decide on having nothing at all. If you have a great window location with privacy a beautiful window can look great even without a dressing especially if you have a great view. Sometimes just some basic casement curtains look great for a casual room. If you need to cover only the lower half of the window a Café curtain can offer you privacy and not block the light. Fabrics that are used for the informal look consist of chitz, ticking, linen, muslin and gingham. A benefit to the informal window coverings over the formal window coverings is that most of these are washable and easy to take care of. Window drapes and curtain linings Depending whether you have a formal or informal curtain or drape covering it will often decide if your window treatment will be lined. Factors will include the amount of natural light you want in your room and the length of time you expect the arrangement will last. Unlined curtains diffuse daylight but won't exclude it. Being the simplest form for your window covering it is still very effective by itself as a window under treatment. The unlined treatment doesn't have the extra thickness of a lining and will stack lightly back. A good choice is to use a fabric that looks attractive from both sides so there will not be a right or wrong side for the inside or outside of your window covering. Classic choices for unlined treatments would consist of lace, mobile, Muslim and sheers that are made out of cotton or silk organza. You may even have textured fabrics that have open weaves; an unlined curtain will filter the light beautifully and give you some privacy in the evening when the lamp is on. Try consolidating sheers with window blinds and shades. Unlined curtain drawbacks are the damage from the sunlight on the window treatment because there is no lining for your window fabric for protection it will deteriorate rapidly. Lined curtains and drapes Lined curtains and drapes have more body, which will give you softer and deeper folds and improve the window treatment appearance. The lining will block sunlight and protect the window fabric from fading. A lining also preserves the color and increases your privacy and will reduce noise from outside. Look for linings that are treated to resist sun damage and rot, once the lining becomes deteriorated you can just realign it or just hang the window covering without the lining on. The rule of thumb is that if you line one curtain in the room do all the rest the same so they will match, Usually the lining fabric will be off-white or white although you can get colored linings you should know that this will affect the hue of the window covering when light passes through it especially in a lightweight curtain fabric get samples and test them together for a color change.
Gael Monfils Get Unofficial Towel During Rafa Nadal Match ...
Gael Monfils Get Unofficial Towel During Rafa Nadal Match ...
From the exact order he towels himself down after each point to how his water bottles are placed on the sidelines, Rafael Nadal is famous for his rituals on the tennis court.But it was his French opponent Gael Monfils who drew attention on Monday night with a bizarre display of his own.After going to a quick break of serve down at 2-0 in the first set, Monfils made his way over to the umpire's chair where he requested a new set of towels.Not just any towels, however, he requested a set of non-regulation white bath towels, and asked the ball boy to have them ready by the end of the next service game.It is not clear why Monfils had a problem with the game towels, though 7 commentator Lleyton Hewitt suggested several possibly explanations.'Sometimes players prefer to use the white towel when they're out there,' he said.'Sometimes the fluff from the new tournament towels comes off.'Jim Courier added that the tournament towels often do not absorb sweat very well, which makes sense, considering the high humidity in Melbourne at the time.Temperatures had reached 36C in the city during the day, but as night fell and rain was forecast, humidity jumped above 80 per cent.The rain threat also forced tournament bosses to close the roof, further upping the temperature inside the arena.Monfils was not the only one suffering in the heat - Nadal was also dripping with sweat from the first game on, with Twitter users describing him as 'leaking like a tap.'In fact the sweat issue became so bad at one point that one of the ball boys had to towel it off the line close to where he was serving.To the Spaniard's credit, he did acknowledge the volunteer's effort, patting them on the back as they completed the thankless task.Monfils also received his request of white bath towels, but they did not appear to help him, as he lost the first set 6-3, having failed to recover from the early break.The second set went the same way, with Nadal triumphing 6-3, before a comeback by Monfils in the third, which went to him 6-4.He also threatened to take the fourth, breaking Nadal earlier on, but the former world number one battled back to claim it 6-4.Nadal will now play No. 3 seed Milos Raonic, who he lost to in Brisbane earlier this month, in the quarterfinal.
Understand Fuzzy Bathrobe
Understand Fuzzy Bathrobe
An Introduction to fuzzy bathrobeKamarion,Whoa! Hold your horses young lad. If you want to be Marine infantry you should have no trouble for Marines ARE infantry. They are amphibious infantry who specialize in going ashore and holding a beach against overwhelming opposition. And if you are a Marine you ARE on the front lines even if you are in a combat support role.But for now I would recommend reading everything you can get your hands on about American History, World History, and Military History. The more you read the better you will write. If you write really well you will succeed in any walk of life.Work on your math. If you want to enlist you will have to take the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). If you ace the math section you will qualify for many technical specialities.There is a stereotype about combat officers, promoted by MASH, that they are brutal war hawks who love sending young men into the "jaws of death." Sometimes this is true as when generals in WW1 "tried to defeat the machine gun with young men's chests" as George Will has written. But in most cases, military officers have been serious intellectuals who have dedicated their lives to studying the "art of war."There is also the wisecrack that "military intelligence is an oxymoron." We just saw how an odd duck in a bathrobe and fuzzy slippers like LCDR Joe Rocheford determined that the Japanese fleet was headed for Midway.So, Kamarion, lay off the war movies and hit the books. I read years ago that the Marine Corps has a reading list of classics in military science that enlisted men and women are expected to study in their off duty hours. I don't know if they still require this but if they do you will be ahead of the game. Put down the cell phone and get to the library.This whole "kneading" cat thing, what is up with my cat? of fuzzy bathrobeI also have a cat who does this, and it might be because of the texture of the robe. We have a soft fuzzy blanket, and the working theory is that he was taken away from his mom too young; one of the other things kneading does is it's basically a 'milking' motion. Because the blanket is so soft and fuzzy - and maybe too because the person under it is so nice and warm - for these once-abandoned kitties, they have some sort of strange notion that the person is 'mom', and the kneading and 'chewing' is the act of feeding. I really don't know how you would stop this, except to get a bathrobe made out of a less fur-like material, like waffle weave or silk or something. I have baby kittens right now who do the same thing with my (fuzzy) bathrobe - but they're so cute I don't mindMy dad needs ideas for my moms of fuzzy bathrobeMom gifts can be tough (especially for Dads) The best thing my husband ever got me was a two day vacation to the beach (Halfmoon Bay in Cali) he got the room and had it decorated with candles and flowers and had my favorite book sitting on the bed.It was relaxing and EXACTLY a Moms paradise....two days to bubble bath and read or watch a movie and just veg out.I know this is not the cheap route but it was by far the best gift I have gotten....A little more cost reasonable would be a fuzzy bathrobe in her fav color with bath salts or bath beads and lotion with a CD of rainforrest or nature music to lock herself in the bath and relax.... put it all in a basket and wrap it....OR-Simply write her a letter telling her all the wonderful qualities she has and why you adore and appreciate her with a gift card to her fav place to shop so she can get herself something without possibly being dissappointed.DEFINATELY DO NOT............ get her an animal, or any living thing that she will have to care for, any appliances ie; blender, vacumm (even if she said in November that she really wanted it), lingerie (women hate this for Christmas- it is a valentines day type thing) or clothes- it is best to let her shop for herself).Hope that helped!
Why Supermarket Chiller Aisles May soon Not Be so Chilly
Why Supermarket Chiller Aisles May soon Not Be so Chilly
Have you ever gone food shopping on a lovely hot day only to be turned into an icicle walking past the supermarket's open chiller cabinets?Suddenly that shorts and T-shirt combo doesn't seem like such a smart idea as you dive in to grab your organic yoghurts.Well all that chilly discomfort could soon be history thanks to a gadget inspired by Formula 1 racing cars.The device is basically a thin strip of aluminium and plastic shaped like a wing that is attached to the front of the cabinet shelves. "The aerofoil acts like the rear wing of an F1 car and guides the air to create an air curtain," explains Craig Wilson, managing director of Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE)."It stops cold air spilling out into the stores."The strip, a result of a collaboration between WAE, the offshoot of the Williams F1 team, and Aerofoil Energy, may look simple, but it could save supermarkets millions in refrigeration costs.UK supermarket chain Sainsbury's is so impressed it has decided to fit the aerofoils in as many of its 1,400 supermarkets and convenience stores as it can."My wife used to moan at me incessantly about the cold when she went shopping at our local store," says Paul Crewe, Sainsbury's head of sustainability."But after we fitted the aerofoils she thought we'd turned the heating up." Of course, it's not just about customer comfort. The supermarket chain's annual electricity bill is "in the hundreds of millions of pounds", he says, and refrigeration accounts for about half of that.Fitting the aerofoils is reducing the chain's refrigeration costs by up to 15%, says Mr Crewe - a potential annual saving of nearly £10m."By looking outside of our industry, and borrowing technology from an industry that is renowned for its speed and efficiency, we are accelerating how we are reducing the impact on the environment, whilst making shopping in Sainsbury's stores a more comfortable experience," he says.But why do we have open chiller cabinets in the first place? Wouldn't cabinets with doors be much more efficient?"Consumers didn't like having to open and close doors on fridges, so we needed a new solution," argues Mr Crewe.But Myles McCarthy, director of implementation at the Carbon Trust, a sustainability consultancy that does a lot of work with supermarkets, suspects this has more to do with marketing."They think we'll buy less if there's a barrier between the products and the consumer," he says.While he welcomes the aerofoil innovation, he says: "This is just a stop-gap. The best way to reduce energy consumption is to put sliding or pull-out doors on all their fridges - this could cut electricity usage by 30%-40%."He thinks all the leading supermarkets should get together and all agree to put doors on their fridges by a certain date.This would "achieve their sustainability goals and save a lot of money," he argues, "and then they wouldn't lose competitive advantage."But in the fiercely competitive, price-driven world of supermarket retailing, it's hard to see such consensus breaking out any time soon. One of the problems with refrigeration - apart from the high electricity consumption - is that the traditional coolants used - hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) - are extremely polluting greenhouse gases that inevitably leak into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.So there are moves within the industry to switch to natural refrigerants based, ironically, on carbon dioxide (CO2), another greenhouse gas.But these natural CO2 alternatives are a thousand times less polluting than HFCs and HCFCs.Earlier this year, German discount supermarket group Aldi announced that it was spending £20m on installing natural refrigerants across all of its UK stores to reduce its environmental impact.Tesco, the largest UK supermarket chain, says it has reduced its refrigerant emissions by 14% since 2015/16.Of course, this is a global issue.Last year in Rwanda, nearly 200 countries agreed to amend the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and begin phasing out HFCs.Supermarkets in general have been trying to reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprints in a number of ways to combat global warming.For example, Sainsbury's is switching 250,000 lights to lower-energy LED fittings in its larger stores, slashing lighting energy consumption by 58% and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 3.4% annually, the company says.Others have been making greater use of natural light, fitting solar panels on to store roofs, and working with suppliers to reduce their energy consumption.Tesco has committed to running entirely on renewable energy in the UK and Ireland by the end of this year, and worldwide by 2030. "A food retail business could reduce its energy use by 20%-40% just by implementing a range of existing technologies," says Mr McCarthy. "These companies are committing to significant long-term decarbonisation of their businesses and to the use of renewables - which is very encouraging."
