UN now better equipped to publicize its work says head of information

“DPI, as the public voice of the Organization, is tasked with communicating its messages in the clearest and most comprehensive manner,” noted Ambassador Antonio Lima of Cape Verde, as he opened the 31st session of the Committee on Information.Mr. Lima said the three reports that have been submitted for the consideration of the 112-member Committee clearly outline the concrete measures implemented by DPI to expand its operation, sharpen its focus and build new partnerships in countries around the world. “Indeed, as the reports indicate, DPI now is better equipped, more focussed and technologically better prepared,” he told the meeting.The head of DPI said the three reports tried to provide a clear picture of the Department’s progress in widening outreach and improving performance. In those efforts, several clear trends had emerged, underlining that complex issues required proactive and strategic approaches. “DPI’s adoption of a strategic approach has had a meaningful impact on what we do and how we do it,” Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information, told delegates.Guided by the decisions of Member States and the vision of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, DPI’s communications priorities for this year centre on the UN development agenda, including the set of anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), peace and security in a number of conflict zones, human rights, climate change disarmament and non-proliferation, and the financial crisis, Mr. Akasaka said. The Department continues to pay close attention to providing timely, accurate, impartial, comprehensive, relevant and coherent information about the UN and its work, he added. “This is a challenging task, at a time when the media and general public demand quick and clear sound bites, but where our role is to inform the public about a complex array of issues – from the balance between peace and justice, to the nature of different conflicts, to the rights and responsibilities of individuals and States.”The Committee – which is also charged with promoting a more effective global information and communications order to strengthen peace and understanding – will during its current session review three of DPI’s sub-programmes: Strategic Communications, News Services and Outreach Services. 4 May 2009The United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) is now better able to spread the message about the important work carried out by the Organization, the chair of the body tasked with reviewing activities in this area said today. read more

Lebanon UN envoy holds talks with Prime Minister

During what he described as “a very good meeting” on Saturday with Prime Minister Saad Hariri, UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Michael Williams said they discussed developments in Lebanon and the region and the situation in the country’s south and along the Blue Line, as well as the implementation of Security Council resolution 1701.Resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 conflict between Israel and Hizbollah, calls for respect of the so-called Blue Line separating the Israeli and Lebanese sides, the disarming of all militias operating in Lebanon, and an end to arms smuggling in the area.In a statement issued by his office, Mr. Williams welcomed the return of calm to the south following the deadly border clashes at Al-Adaysseh on 3 August, as well as the commitments of both parties to the cessation of hostilities.“Since this incident, there have been two meetings of the tripartite group in Naqoura, one of which I attended myself on 4 August, and there will be another meeting next week, I believe on 2 September,” he said.“All sides I think now have to work very hard to prevent a recurrence of any incident like that of 3 August, which could lead to a deterioration of the situation. But I believe at the moment we have returned to relative normality.”Mr. Williams said they had also discussed some recent developments in Lebanon, and in Beirut in particular, and he expressed his condolences to the Prime Minister about the lives that were lost in Bourj Abi-Haidar last Tuesday evening.He was referring to armed clashes last week between Shi’a and Sunni Muslim groups in the capital, Beirut, in which three people were reportedly killed.“I commended the Prime Minister and his Government for the actions they have taken in the wake of that serious incident to contain any further outbreaks of violence, and to address the issue of firearms in the city of Beirut,” Mr. Williams said.“I also commended the role of the Lebanese Armed Forces in working hard to maintain security and stability in Lebanon and underlined the importance of Lebanon’s institutions in maintaining calm and stability at this moment.” 30 August 2010The top United Nations envoy to Lebanon has met with that country’s Prime Minister as part of his continuing efforts to promote stability and dialogue in the Middle Eastern nation. read more

Clean development projects under UN climate change pact top 3000

An international arrangement that channels investment into clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction technology in developing countries has registered its 3,000th project, the secretariat of the United Nations climate change convention reported today.The 3,000th project, under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), is a wind power project in Inner Mongolia, China, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) said in a press release. The mechanism is part of the Kyoto Protocol, an addition to the Convention that contains legally binding measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.The project is expected to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas which contributes most to human-generated climate change, by more than 101,000 tons a year. It will involve the installation of 41 wind-powered turbines capable of producing up to 49.5 megawatts of electricity. The electricity produced will be fed into the power grid and displace electricity that otherwise would have been generated through the burning of high-carbon fossil fuel.“The Clean Development Mechanism is still evolving and will continue to do so. But from the original concept to now, it has been a success way beyond the initial expectations, not only in the number of projects but also in its ability to attract private sector investment into bettering livelihoods and environments of people in the developing world,” said Christiana Figueres, the UNFCCC Executive Secretary.CDM was founded by governments on the principle that every project must deliver a real and transparent reduction of carbon emissions in a way that contributes to sustainable development.“The world will not solve climate change without an ever-increasing commitment to international cooperation,’ said Ms. Figueres. “That means the financial sector and business must be given ways and means to help put money and technology where they are most needed into the developing world, as well as into the developed world,” she said.“Governments and the board that manages the CDM are working to attract more projects into the poorest countries and to safeguard the mechanism’s environmental integrity,” added Ms. Figueres.Some 71 countries have CDM projects. In addition to the 3,000 so far registered, there are about another 2,600 projects in various stages of the vetting process.Under CDM, projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute to sustainable development can earn saleable emission offset credits – the so-called certified emission reductions or CERs. Each CER is equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide.Developed countries which have an emission reduction commitment under the Kyoto Protocol can use the CERs to meet part of their obligations to reduce their national greenhouse gas emissions under the Protocol. To date, 1,039 projects have earned a total of more than 600 million certified emission reduction credits, according to UNFCCC. 5 May 2011An international arrangement that channels investment into clean energy and greenhouse gas reduction technology in developing countries has registered its 3,000th project, the secretariat of the United Nations climate change convention reported today. read more

John Amaratunga regrets but yet stands by his behaviour

“No journalists were invited for the meeting as it was strictly a discussion between the area residents and me, the Member of Parliament representing that area,” he said. “It then became clear to me that these so-called journalists who were trespassing on my private property were pursuing a hidden agenda. That is when I was compelled to ask them to leave,” he said.Amaratunga said that it is pertinent to note that the new found press freedom is being abused by a section of the media who have no respect for the truth or basic decency.He says the so-called journalists are tarnishing the good image of the established media through their reckless actions. “While regretting the way things turned out, I hope the media will act responsibly to protect the new found freedom which we have fought and won for them,” the Minister said. (Colombo Gazette) “Despite this I maintained my composure and successfully concluded the meeting. As the meeting ended and I was leaving the premises these individuals tried their best to drag me in to an argument by continuously asking provocative questions even though I answered them initially,” he said.The Minister said that as any human being would react he told them to stop asking such questions as they were clearly unaware of the real facts pertaining to the garbage issue in the area. Ministry of Tourism Development and Christian Religious Affairs John Amaratunga expressed regret yet stood by his behaviour yesterday where he had threatened a journalist.In a statement today Amaratunga said a meeting was held at his private residence to discuss issues faced by area residents with regard to the garbage disposal issue. The Minister said that during the meeting some “uninvited individuals” who called themselves journalists were continuously interrupting the discussion and insulting both the President and the Prime Minister. read more

Health services for Palestine refugees extended despite regional turmoil – UN agency

Indicators include a decrease in the average number of daily medical consultations per doctor, an increase in consultation times and decrease in antibiotics prescription rates.“The indicators are impressive and show that the ‘Family Health Team’ model which our reforms have established in 99 or our 115 health centres (86 per cent) are having a real impact on the health of our beneficiaries,” said Akihiro Seita, Director of Health Department at UNRWA.However, ongoing conflicts in Syria and Gaza and their spillover into Lebanon and Jordan have been a prominent challenge for UNRWA health workers. “I’d like to pay tribute to the extraordinary efforts of the UNRWA health teams, working in some of the most challenging environments today,” said Dr. Seita.Another highlighted indicator, for example, is maternal and child health. According to UNRWA’s Health Department Annual Report 2014, vaccination coverage, early registration to preventive care and percentage of pregnant women attending at least four antenatal case visits remain at a high level. “The total number of maternal deaths among the Palestine refugee population was reduced,” explained Dr. Seita, adding that “immunization coverage rates for different target populations continued to be around 99 per cent, leading to zero percent outbreaks of immunization-preventable communicable diseases.”The report also highlighted that diabetes campaigns have had positive results in reducing participants’ body measurements and improving blood pressures.Despite these significant efforts, however, UNRWA continues its uphill battle to tackle conflict-related trauma and non-communicable diseases caused by unhealthy lifestyles and diets.“These challenges exist in the face of the grim reality that our financial resources are never sufficient, and in fact are shrinking every year,” Dr. Seita commented, adding that “we will expand existing relationships with our national and international partners and donors.” Family Health Team (FHT) is a person-centred, holistic, primary health care model designed to improve quality, efficiency and effectiveness of health services, particularly targeting non-communicable diseases. read more

La Center acting students take on lip syncing

first_imgLA CENTER — The high school here hasn’t staged a bona fide musical play since 1996. Theater teacher Sara Rideout aims to change that this spring with “Peter and the Starcatcher,” set to run May 16 through 18.To pave the way, Rideout and her acting students staged a fundraising anthology of make-believe musical sketches Thursday. They were make-believe because, if you’d cut the amplified music and silenced the rowdy audience, the only thing left would be students dancing and gesticulating and silently pretending to sing.It was the sixth annual lip sync battle among La Center High School’s acting students, and the first time Rideout has made that battle into a public showcase and fundraiser. Admission was free, but the excited audience voted for their favorite lip sync stars by dropping cash into boxes and buckets. In the end, more than $2,000 was raised toward the considerable expense of staging May’s big musical production.This production was big, too — because dancing and fake-singing for an audience of hundreds means really hamming it up. Some presentations were robust dance routines; others delved into characters and stories to silly or serious effect.A song called “Cannibal” by Tally Hall was enacted by Evan Smith, desperately mouthing the words as he raced around the stage ahead of Kiersten Brightbill, giving chase with a scary-big knife. In the end, he gave up and she tucked in, unleashing red ribbons of fake blood. In “Under Pressure” by Queen, Joao Rizzo kept offering his heart to Abby Hollopeter, who had a nose in a book and couldn’t be bothered — until Rizzo shrugged and sidled away. That’s when Hollopeter suddenly came to life and raced offstage after him.last_img read more

Navy Draws up Plans to House Tens of Thousands of Immigrants

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Navy is developing plans to construct detention facilities for tens of thousands of immigrants on a combination of active installations, outlying landing fields and one closed base, according to a draft memo obtained by Time magazine. The document outlines plans to build “temporary and austere” tent cities to house 25,000 migrants at two outlying landing fields near Mobile, Ala. The memo proposes constructing facilities for up to 47,000 people each at two sites in California — Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in Southern California and the former Naval Weapons Station Concord in northern California. It proposes studying the possibility of housing migrants at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma, Ariz., as well.The memo recommends Navy Secretary Richard Spencer approve the plans. It estimates the Navy would spend about $233 million to construct and operate a facility for 25,000 people for a six-month period. Last week On Base reported that the Trump administration is planning to house up to 20,000 unaccompanied migrant children on military installations following a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to have facilities available as early as July.last_img read more

Taking a closer look at Indian BnBs

first_imgWho had imagined in the last decade that the travelers will start giving preference to stay in Bed and Breakfast accommodations/Homestays and such service providers like Airbnb, BnB Nation etc will become such big companies. Since 2016, India has had a shortage of 2,00,000 hotel rooms mainly in the budget category. Thus, Indian hospitality industry is in urgent need to find ways to cope up with such huge shortage of hotel rooms. Now, the question is how can we fill the need gap? The best option, hitherto not given much emphasis is “Experiencing India in its homes” through hosted accommodation in Bed and Breakfast accommodations or BnBs. Unfortunately, neither literature was available nor significant research work is available in India on Bed and Breakfast accommodations though the Ministry of Tourism, Govt of India launched the Incredible India Bed and Breakfast scheme in 2006. In order to fill the need gap, a book, dedicated to Bed and Breakfast accommodations is out on the stands. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfTitled, ‘Indian BnBs: An emerging disruptor in the hospitality sector’, the book is authored by Dr GG Saxena, Anshul Saxena and Ambuj Saxena.

Broadway performer reveals hes HIV positive to help tackle stigma

first_imgUmana appeared in the original Broadway production of Kinky Boots and the US touring production of School of Rock. He’s also gay, a keen fitness enthusiast and proud dog dad. He also recently co-founded a new hemp oil pet product business.In the posting, he reveals he was diagnosed ten years ago when aged just 20. He was shocked by the diagnosis because he says he’d only slept with three other people at the time and wasn’t expecting the news. HIV treatment successful in preventing transmission of virus even without condoms Hernando Umana (Photo: @hernandoumana | Instagram) Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . HIV stigma summed up in one cruel Grindr message eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) GAYSTARNEWS-center_img ‘This is by far the most important, scary, liberating post of my life,’ Umana begins.‘Here we go. Ten years ago, at a young, young age of 20, I was diagnosed with HIV. I’ll never forget the moment they told me. It wasn’t possible – I had only slept with 3 people in my life! This can’t be true.‘The first words out of my mouth were “How long do I have to live?” That’s how uneducated I was about it. It had been drilled in my head that gay people get HIV because of wrongdoings and they deservingly die from it.‘Well I’m here to shut that shit down. There is NOTHING wrong with me and I am healthier than I’ve ever been.‘In the last 10 years I’ve met countless of HIV positive men. Some of these men are so affected by the stigma that they don’t tell a soul about their status, even go as far as not taking their medication.‘In our extremely privileged community the stigma is more dangerous than the disease. We still have a lot of fighting to do for the people who don’t have the privilege of cost-effective medication.‘Let’s talk about it. Let’s ask questions’‘So I stand on the shoulders of people like @staleypr [HIV and LGBTI rights activist Peter Staley] who risked his life for us. I stand on the shoulders of the millions of people who had to suffer and die from this disease. I stand on the shoulders of the gay men who were forced out of the closet in such a scary time.‘These men and woman fought and died to get to where we’re at now – to take a pill at night and never have to worry about dying. To get the disease to a point where it is IMPOSSIBLE to transmit (undetectable).‘How can I be ashamed of this? I honor their legacy by telling my story. So let’s talk about it. Let’s ask questions. Take your PrEP. Use condoms. Be SAFE. Let’s end this stigma forever and eventually end HIV forever!‘To those who have questions – don’t feel dumb asking anything about it. It’s not your fault there’s such a lack of education out there. To those who are afraid to talk about their status – you’ve got at least one guy right here you are LOVED. You are BEAUTIFUL and there is nothing wrong with you. A Broadway performer has written a moving Instagram post in which he reveals he has been HIV positive for the past ten years. Hernando Umana says he decided to post about it as he wants to help tackle stigma around the virus. ‘I, Hernando Umana, am a proud gay man LIVING with HIV. Fuck that feels good to say.’‘Thank you for being courageous’The posting has had thousands of likes since being posted yesterday. Among the hundreds of people to comment are Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy, who said: ‘This is so important! Thank you for being courageous and for educating and inspiring others!’Another to welcome the posting is Ian Howley, Chief Executive of HERO – the UK-based Health Equality and Rights Organisation.‘Coming out of the ‘viral closet’ is still a difficult thing for lots of gay and bisexual men living with HIV to do,’ he told GSN.‘For some it can be an easy process for others it can be a traumatising experience. Many still face a wave of stigma and rejection because of their status.‘Stigma towards those living with HIV is still having a knock on effect in our fight with HIV. It stops people talking about their status, it creates mental health issues, people living with HIV can feel isolated after a positive diagnosis and there are reports that links suicide to HIV stigma.‘It also stops people from testing or talking about HIV with potential partners because of fear. This is unacceptable.‘In 2018 there is no reason why stigma towards those living with HIV should exist.’The AIDS MemorialThe posting was also re-shared by the popular AIDS Memorial Instagram account. Its founder, Stuart, told GSN why he wanted to re-share it.‘Hernando’s post just underlines the stigma still out there! It’s ludicrous to think such an announcement in this day and age is still a big deal. But it is.‘We all know stigma kills. We know that people don’t take their medication because of stigma. That people feel shamed, not worthy and fear rejection. The fact the it took Hernando 10 years to disclose his status just makes you think: how far have we really come?‘OK, it’s a chronic condition but our attitudes need to catch up fast because people are dying due to stigma.’GSN has reached out to Hernando Umana for further comment.See alsoNot one case of HIV transmission from HIV positive gay men on effective treatment Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Bisexual porn star reveals the differences between gay and straight pornNew HIV diagnoses in UK dropped by 17% last yearMatt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto and others show support for AIDS MemorialRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  : read more

How Standardizing Protocols Can Save Time and Money

first_imgFeature | Computed Tomography (CT) | July 12, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Standardizing Protocols Can Save Time and Money AHRA Talk Will Describe Value of Uniformity Related Content In-house Protocol Development CostsTo develop and implement just one CT protocol a community hospital 6 years ago invested more than $12,000 and 50 person-hours by radiologists, physicists, technologists and administrators. This was time not spent generating income, Szczykutowicz told Imaging Technology News.To establish why standardization of imaging protocols can save time and money, the UW presenters will describe the factors that affect CT image quality, as well as the challenges that can arise when CT protocols are not uniform. Image quality and protocols are inextricably linked, he said.Inconsistent imaging among studies, due to improper protocols, can affect image quality. It can also lead to increased patient radiation, particularly if repeat CT scans are needed. Rescanning can delay treatment of the patient and increase costs, he said. Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety. Medical imaging plays an increasing role in the accurate… read more The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s. Waste — And More WasteTime and money can be spent unnecessarily in the development and management of protocols. The Joint Commission (TJC), for example, requires that CT protocols be standardized for clinical indication, contrast administration, patient age (e.g., pediatric or adult), size and body habitus. These must be considered in the context of the expected “radiation dose index range.” TJC also requires annual reports detailing a site’s CT protocol management.These reports can be expensive to generate, as they involve efforts by radiologists, physicists and technologists. Reports are annually prepared on UW protocols, which are also regularly updated in compliance with TJC, Szczykutowicz noted.If done by individual providers, this process would be very costly. Annual costs can balloon above $270,000, according to UW estimates.“When you reinvent the (protocol) wheel at a site, you have to reinvent the compliance wheel as well,” he said. “That is a big waste.” Related content:UW GE CT PROTOCOL PARTNERSHIP Protocol Design and OptimizationThe Joint Commission Mission Statement  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

UW-Madison was the first site in the U.S. to get this technology. Its use is now being integrated into UW CT protocols. Image courtesy of Timothy P. SzczykutowiczWhen providers develop their own imaging protocols, they are wasting time and money, according to Timothy Szczykutowicz, Ph.D, an associate professor in the University of Wisconsin (UW) Departments of Radiology, Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering in Madison.These sites are unnecessarily “re-inventing the wheel,” said Szczykutowicz, an expert in computed tomography (CT) protocol management and optimization. Instead they should adopt protocols that already exist.One provider making its CT protocols available is the UW in Madison, Wisc., which is doing so through a licensing agreement with GE Healthcare. (The protocols, which address musculoskeletal, chest, pediatrics, cardiovascular and brain CT, work only with GE CT scanners.)“The wheel we have developed is available globally,” he said. “So, if you go to a medical center and you present with the same symptom, the images from the scan you get are going to be the same at every site that is running our protocols.”About 1,500 sites around the world have obtained the UW protocols under the license with GE, according to Szczykutowicz (pronounced “stick-o-toe-vitch”), who co-chairs the task group on protocol management at the American Association of Physics in Medicine (AAPM). He and colleagues will address the value of protocol standardization July 23 at the AHRA annual meeting to be held in Denver.Szczykutowicz is a member of the AAPM alliance for CT quality; contributes to the IHE (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise) profile on the management of acquisition parameters; and conducts research into CT protocol management and technologist workflow. He has authored about a dozen papers and a book chapter on the subject in the past 4 years.During the AHRA presentation, Szczykutowicz will be accompanied by UW emeritus professor of radiology Myron Pozniak, M.D., and UW-Madison Hospitals and Clinics director of radiology, Gina Greenwood. Together they will address the clinical importance of prior image comparisons in radiology; the importance of standardizing the process of imaging; and why outsourcing CT protocol management and development are financially preferable to doing either or both in-house.

Architect defends controversial design for new Legislative Assembly building

first_imgArchitect Javier Salinas’ plan for a looming, concrete tower to house Costa Rica’s Legislative Assembly in downtown San José seems to get more criticism the closer the project gets to breaking ground.In January 2013, Salinas won a contest to design a replacement for the current building, which health officials have ordered closed on numerous occasions. His first design had to be scrapped because the cost to build it was too high. The new plan — for a 17-story “concrete monolith,” as Salinas calls it — has come under a storm of criticism since its unveiling in March 2015.San José residents and fellow architects have expressed doubts regarding the building’s design and functionality, singling out potentially sky-high energy costs and interrupted views for neighboring buildings.Writing for the Costa Rican newspaper El País, Marité Valenzuela, a city councilwoman from San José’s Carmen district, offered up a harsh critique of the building design.“This building, which looks more like one of those concrete trash cans you see here in the parks, projects images of rejection, separation and inaccessibility to people that isn’t in accordance with the high-reaching, democratic aspirations of our country,” Valenzuela wrote. Architect Javier Salinas took part in a conversation over his plans to build the new Legislative Assembly building at Veritas University in Zaptoe on Thursday, April 14, 2016. (Courtesy of Mauricio Campos Díaz)At a roundtable conversation at San José’s Véritas University last Thursday, Salinas defended his project while fielding questions from fellow architects and students at the university’s architecture school. After scrolling through a slideshow that included pictures of the Eiffel Tower and the Great Pyramid of Giza, Salinas came to a slide with an image of one of Costa Rica’s iconic stone spheres with the word “Solidarity” over it. Salinas said his building is a symbolic ode to Costa Rica’s democratic solidarity.“Roots are another symbol that are expressed in this building,” he said. “For such a small country we have great pride …. This new Assembly is meant to represent all the citizens of this country.”In local news stories and on social media (there’s even a “NO to the new Legislative Assembly building” Facebook group), many have said that the windowless building does not evoke democracy. Critics also say natural light and ventilation in the building will likely be minimal.Salinas said Thursday that the patio on the top floor will receive plenty of sunlight, and opens downward like a well dropping 70 vertical meters. He also showed photos of angled divots in the new design, which he released in March 2015, which he said would provide air circulation.“Everything is calculated in regards to sunlight and ventilation coming into the building,” he said. “We worked with a team of specialists to do all the scientific steps required to make sure there would be enough natural light and air.”Salinas’ original design was to be made mostly of glass, but the high cost and lack of needed permits sent him back to the drawing board at the beginning of 2015.In the redesign, the exterior would be made entirely of concrete walls, which Salinas said is a much cheaper alternative.Julio Cedeño, an engineer whose company Novatecnia is supervising the construction project, defended Salinas at Thursday’s event, saying he has limited resources to work with.“There’s an economic limitation here,” Cedeño said. “It’s not like Salinas and his team have a blank check to work on the design.” The new building would be near the Legislative Assembly’s current location. (Javier Salinas Arquitectos e Ingenieros Consultores Asociados S.A.)Bruno Stagno, founder of the Tropical Architecture Institute and a former professor of Salinas, took part in the roundtable discussion Thursday. He said his doubts stemming from photos he saw in the media were reaffirmed during Salinas’ slideshow presentation. Stagno said a building made entirely of concrete is a bad match for Costa Rica’s tropical climate.“Concrete is not going to work for you,” Stagno told Salinas. “In climates where we don’t have much variation like in the Central Valley, buildings don’t need more insulation. What they need is shade to make sure the sun’s radiation doesn’t bear down on them. In this, the sun is going to heat up the walls and this heat is going to always be transmitted inside.”He added that the “well” that allows sunlight into the building will remain dark for most of the day. Veritas University in Zapote hosted a discussion between building designer Javier Salinas and fellow architects from Costa Rica. (Courtesy of Mauricio Campos Díaz)The project, which is being primarily financed by the Bank of Costa Rica, is set to cost ₡52 billion, or $97.3 million, according to a Legislative Assembly press release. In terms of layout, the 50,000-square-meter building consisting of 17 floors, in addition to four basement floors. It will house offices for the country’s 57 lawmakers, an assembly room, and offices for each political faction.Now that the checklist of permissions from a litany of state institutions is nearly complete, construction is supposed to begin in the next few weeks and is expected to conclude in 2018.The only approval that is still up in the air is that of the National Technical Secretariat of the Environment Ministry (SETENA). Cedeño said at Thursday’s debate that developers expect SETENA to sign off on everything in the very near future, possibly as soon as this week.Residents like Valenzuela have accused Salinas’ firm of being overly secretive about the project. She said no one really knows if certain permissions, like those required by the Health Ministry, are still pending because both the government and the developers are staying quiet.“The public still has no idea what is going on with this building,” Valenzuela told The Tico Times. “The developers have been keeping information back and that’s unconstitutional.”Architect Salinas said Thursday that contractual details restrict what information he can release to the public.“I can’t give all the information because now is not the time to divulge all of that,” Salinas said. “Soon everything about the project will be out in the public but right now we’re limited in giving out information.” An artist’s rendering of the street view of the new Legislative Assembly building planned for downtown at the intersection of Calle 15 and Central Avenue. (Courtesy of Mauricio Campos Díaz)Cedeño from Novatecnia said his company is working with Salinas to be more efficient in providing updates about the project’s development, saying they had begun putting an emphasis on transparency.Fellow architect Álvaro Rojas, who presided over the jury that ultimately selected Salinas to do the project, also expressed his concerns with Salinas’ plan on Thursday. Like Stagno, Rojas taught Salinas at Véritas. He said he has told his former pupil that he worries about the lack of shade and the building’s massive size that could block views.“Javier chose the symbolism of solidarity and democracy, but this sacrifices other symbols important to our country and ends up blocking the view,” Rojas said.Rojas poked fun at Salinas’ allusions to some of the world’s greatest monuments in his slideshow presentation, saying that philosophical and theoretical emphases like solidarity and democracy can lead to oversights in more practical purposes.Despite his doubts, Rojas appeared to lend his support to his former student.“Even the pyramids of Egypt and the Eiffel Tower were under scrutiny when they were being built,” Rojas said. “Hundreds of years later people worship them. I’m sure the same thing will happen with Javier’s building.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Barrio Chino aims to be San José’s next big food spot ‘Impossible to stop’ construction of polemic legislative building, says Assembly president Legal skirmishes cause rifts in Costa Rica’s craft beer industry The Tico Times event gives inside look at — and taste of — local craft beer scenelast_img read more
