In northern climates, the effectiveness of solar energy is greatly diminished. With the 5th highest electricity cost in the country, the requisite for solar energy is even more pronounced in Massachusetts. The unique roof geometry of the Tung House is optimized for a two-fold solution that achieves net-zero energy use: PV and hot water solar panels provide power and heating while the resulting overhangs are calibrated for summer shading and winter solar access.Save this picture!© Project : ArchitectureThe design solution attempts to converge the technical aspects of sustainability and code restrictions with spatial experience and sequence. Although the property is relatively large at 42,000 sf, only 2,800 sf of the lot is buildable as it is on the edge of designated wetlands. While the massing adheres to these tight setbacks, the roof breaks free of the house’s orthogonal geometry to optimize solar orientation.Save this picture!© Project : ArchitectureAs the town ordinance strictly limits disturbing the site, the section of the house follows the natural contours creating a split-level condition. The result is a continuous experience from public, semi-public, and private spaces. As one enters, a view directly connects the front of the house to the preserved landscape of the backyard. An open stair is a communicating core connecting loft-like living and kitchen areas to a mezzanine and bedrooms above. Even as the house is open, the geometry of the roof creates dynamic spatial conditions, defining diverse areas of use.Save this picture!Section 01Save this picture!© Project : ArchitectureSave this picture!Section 02Save this picture!© Project : ArchitectureIn terms of the project statistics, the house is intentionally designed at 2,900 sf in contrast to the 5,000 sf houses currently being constructed in the area. The compact size is a careful negotiation between energy use, building form, and budget. 37 PV panels generate 1200kW per month, well over the 900kW estimated monthly average. In the summer months, the excess energy is transferred back to the city’s power grid. 3 additional solar hot water panels supply 100% of the house’s hot water requirements including the radiant floor heating system for the fall and winter seasons.Save this picture!© Project : ArchitectureSave this picture!Sustainable strategiesSave this picture!© Project : ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessThis Brazilian Startup Creates Smart, Pre-Fabricated Homes in Half the TimeArchitecture News10 Bathrooms To Match Your Favorite BathbombArticles Share CopyHouses, Sustainability•Lincoln, United States United States Projects Tung House / Project : Architecturelast_img read more

Dell Technologies Partner Organization Works to Advance and Empower Women in Technology

first_imgAt Dell Technologies, we are deeply committed to driving human progress. Through our reach, technology and people we strive to create a positive and lasting impact on humankind and the planet. Cultivating inclusion and transforming lives are two areas of focus that will help us achieve our Dell Technologies 2030 social impact goals. Both inform our dedication to diversity and inclusion. Whether through internal employee resource groups or external programs, we strive to support inclusivity and diversity initiatives.One of these external programs is the Dell Technologies Women’s Partner Network (WPN), which is comprised of professional women and supporters from within both Dell Technologies and our global partner community. Led by Executive Sponsor, Cheryl Cook, Senior Vice President of Global Partner Marketing – and working in collaboration with Dell Technologies’ diversity and inclusion initiatives – the WPN is dedicated to advancing and empowering women in technology through access to resources, special events, and leadership and by creating a global community that facilitates relationship-building, mentorship, and business growth.The Women’s Partner Network champions diversity inclusion within the channel and global communityThe Dell Technologies WPN produces, attends and sponsors a number of industry and community events and give-back initiatives each year – most recently International Women’s Day, the Krewe of Amalee City Takeover for Good charity event and DeLand Dog Parade (which supported over 20 different charities and causes) and many of The Channel Company’s Women of the Channel events.We consider the Women of the Channel event series to be an integral driver of progress for women in our industry. These events include keynote sessions from inspirational women leaders, development and networking opportunities, and offer women in the channel a chance to lift one another as we advance. In December 2019, Dell Technologies was a Premier Sponsor of The Women of the Channel Leadership Summit East (WOTC East).In addition to the leadership and connection, these women are passionate about giving back and serving community. Over the last year, the Dell Technologies WPN donated more than $137,000 to charities. WPN has been a proud underwriter of [email protected] (the charitable arm of The Channel Company) for many years, partnering with them to serve and give back at three volunteer events each year.One of our recent and memorable highlights was our give-back in December with chosen charity partner, Willow International.  Willow International’s mission is to “end human trafficking through restoration, prevention, and partnership.” Following an emotional session focused on Willow International’s lifesaving mission, attendees worked together to assemble more than 120 care packages for victims of human trafficking.Celebrating the exceptional Women of the Channel and their contributions to the IT channelOn May 11, CRN announced its 2020 Women of the Channel. We are honored to announce that this esteemed list includes 47 women from across Dell Technologies, including VMware. This represents the largest number of Dell Technologies women selected by the CRN editorial team to join its list of “exceptional women acclaimed for their contributions to channel advocacy, growth, thought leadership, and dedication to the IT channel.”“We are thrilled and humbled by the inclusion of 47 Dell Technologies leaders on CRN’s 2020 Women of the Channel list. Being able to honor these remarkable leaders for their outstanding accomplishments is at the heart of what our Women’s Partner Network stands for and is core to helping to drive our Dell Technologies 2030 goals,” shared Holly Delgado, Global Lead for the Dell Technologies WPN.Eight of these women – Dell Technologies’ Cheryl Cook, Erica Lambert, Joyce Mullen, Shawn Trotter, and Mary-Catherine Wilson; and VMware’s Jenni Flinders, Anna Dorcey, and Amanda Banker – were also named to CRN’s 2020 Power 100 list. The Power 100 is an elite subset of the Women of the Channel; and represents “the most powerful women leaders across IT channel organizations.Join the Dell Technologies Women’s Partner NetworkWe encourage our partners to join the WPN and to connect with industry peers and like-minded women, share best practices and access tools and resources to help grow their businesses and thrive with Dell Technologies.last_img read more

UN Appeals for Haiti Cholera Aid to Avoid Being ‘Overrun’

first_imgBy Dialogo November 16, 2010 The United Nations on 12 November appealed for nearly 164 million dollars in aid to tackle cholera in Haiti and avoid being “overrun” by the growing epidemic. “We hope we can get this otherwise all our efforts will be overrrun by the epidemic,” said Elisabeth Byrs, a spokeswoman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Byrs said UN, other aid agencies and Haiti’s health ministry needed 163.8 million dollars for a strategy to stifle the sudden epidemic, which has infected more than 11,000 people and killed 724 since October.last_img
