El Manicomio Del Futbol Chileno, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

El Manicomio Del Futbol Chileno, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Chile acaba de elegir al nuevo presidente de la Asociación de fútbol (ANFP), luego de un tortuoso camino que muestra que este deporte es más que un simple juego o, en otras palabras, que se trata de un fenómeno social que traspasó las barreras de sus propias reglas. A la cabeza del organismo estuvo el Sr. Mayne-Nicholls cumpliendo una gestión reconocida unánimemente: nueva infraestructura deportiva, siembra de bases hacia el futuro, importantes resultados deportivos, cambios en la modalidad de los torneos, jerarquización internacional, exportación de futbolistas y construcción de un estilo de fútbol con identificación ciudadana. Para este proceso hubo ...


Loring-Greenough House, North Yard Archaeogeophysics, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, John M. Steinberg, Christa M. Beranek, John Schoenfelder, Kathryn A. Catlin 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

Loring-Greenough House, North Yard Archaeogeophysics, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, John M. Steinberg, Christa M. Beranek, John Schoenfelder, Kathryn A. Catlin

Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research Publications

An archaeogeophysical survey was carried out in May 2010 using Geonics EM-38 RT and a Malå Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system with a 500 MHz antenna over an 28x26 m grid immediately northeast of the Loring-Greenough house in Jamaica Plain, MA. Three major anomalies were identified. These anomalies have not been ground truthed, but they appear to be archaeological features. First, we suggest that there is builders trench just north of the house. Second, we suggest that there could be three east-west garden paths or other landscape features about 30 cm below the surface crossing the entire length of the ...

The Reduction Of Run-Off Water With An Eco-Friendly Walkway, Marcelo Punches 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

The Reduction Of Run-Off Water With An Eco-Friendly Walkway, Marcelo Punches

Horticulture and Crop Science

Water run-off can erode slopes and cause flooding in undesirable locations. With the use of permeable pavers we reduce water run-off issues. Normal pavers or concrete displace water to an unnatural location. This can lead to soil becoming too saturated with water and harm nearby plant life. Using different size rock layers will allow for fast infiltration and percolation of water. LED lights were also installed on this project to complement the permeable pavers.

Culvert Material Cost Comparison, New England Environmental Finance Center

Economics and Finance

The following tables provide a detailed look at the role that culvert material and culvert diameter play in the overall cost of a culvert replacement project. Table 1 displays the cost per foot purchase price arranged by diameter size for the various culvert materials that are currently available. Table 2 displays the average additional culvert pipe material cost (increased cost to upsize minus original in-kind replacement cost) that would be incurred when upsizing a given diameter of culvert with a 50 foot length by factors of: 200%, 250% and 300%.


Service Use And Costs For Persons Experiencing Chronic Homelessness In Philadelphia: A Population-Based Study, Stephen R. Poulin, Marcella Maguire, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane 2010 University of Pennsylvania

Service Use And Costs For Persons Experiencing Chronic Homelessness In Philadelphia: A Population-Based Study, Stephen R. Poulin, Marcella Maguire, Stephen Metraux, Dennis P. Culhane

Dennis P. Culhane

Objective: This study is the first to examine the distribution of service utilization and costs with a population-based sample that experienced chronic homelessness in sheltered and unsheltered locations in a large U.S. city. Methods: This study used shelter and street outreach records from a large U.S. city to identify 2,703 persons who met federal criteria for chronic homelessness during a three-year period. Identifiers for these persons were matched to administrative records for psychiatric care, substance abuse treatment, and incarceration. Results: Twenty percent of the persons who incurred the highest costs for services ccounted for 60% of the ...


Post-Earthquake Housing Recovery In Bachhau, India: The Homeowner, The Renter, And The Squatter, Anuradha Mukherji 2010 East Carolina University

Post-Earthquake Housing Recovery In Bachhau, India: The Homeowner, The Renter, And The Squatter, Anuradha Mukherji

Anuradha Mukherji

This paper looks at post-earthquake housing recovery in Bachhau, a town close to the epicenter of the 2001 Gujarat earthquake in western India. This research examines the difference in housing recovery outcomes among homeowners, squatters, and renters in Bachhau, in order to understand why single-family homeowners and squatters were able to rebuild and improve their housing conditions whereas low-income renters continued to struggle toward housing recovery. This paper shows that communities in Bachhau did not have the resources or capacities to rebuild themselves and that appropriate public assistance was critical for housing recovery. While public assistance was mainly targeted to ...

Quito Imaginada, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

En la actualidad, las ciudades no pueden entenderse exclusivamente desde las lógicas de la distribución espacial de las actividades urbanas. Tampoco a partir de las infraestructuras básicas del transporte o del agua potable, ni desde el valor del suelo o los ingresos del gobierno de la ciudad. Es imprescindible también tener en cuenta lo que piensan sus habitantes, los imaginarios que tienen, es decir, sus ópticas culturales. Los imaginarios no son sino la realidad que percibimos vivir, sentir y experimentar, lo que, a su vez, nos lleva a vivir según sus pautas. Esto significa que los imaginarios configuran la realidad ...


An Investigation Of The Influence Of Diaphragm Flexibility On Building Design Through A Comparison Of Forced Vibration Testing And Computational Analysis, Blake Alan Roskelley 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

An Investigation Of The Influence Of Diaphragm Flexibility On Building Design Through A Comparison Of Forced Vibration Testing And Computational Analysis, Blake Alan Roskelley

Master's Theses and Project Reports

An assessment of the validity of idealizing a concrete diaphragm as rigid was performed through the modal analysis of three existing buildings. Modal analysis was performed both by physical experimentation and computational analysis. Experimental determination of the mode shapes shows that two of the three buildings’ diaphragms exhibited flexible behavior. The experimental results were compared to computational analysis results and were shown to be similar, confirming that that the two building diaphragms are not rigid. As a standard, diaphragms with aspect ratios less than three are permitted to be idealized as rigid per ASCE 7-05. To determine the effect of ...


Glorious Constructions: The Struggle To Preserve Salvation-Themed Visionary Art Environments, Molly Elaine Sheehan 2010 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Glorious Constructions: The Struggle To Preserve Salvation-Themed Visionary Art Environments, Molly Elaine Sheehan

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Salvation-themed art environments are a roadside rarity, built out of a strong visionary dedication to God, but the sites are disappearing simply because the work is misunderstood. The historiography on the subject is sparse, trending more toward coffee table books with big glossy pictures than real scholarly endeavors, but the consensus among all has been clear. The sites are a valuable part of the recent American cultural landscape, crossing several scholarly fields - art, architecture, and history - and uniting them into a cohesive preservation movement. On a series of trips to visit, see, and experience five of these sites, I began ...


La Crisis De Los Ídolos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Crisis De Los Ídolos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El Aucas de Quito ha caído en una pendiente que le ha llevado de la seria A a la B y ahora a la segunda categoría; tiene una deuda de 400 mil dólares. El Barcelona de Guayaquil lleva 13 años sin ganar un título y acumula una deuda de alrededor de 20 millones de dólares. Los dos equipos son ídolos en sus dos bastiones, tienen un sentimiento popular muy grande y son referentes de universos simbólicos importantes ¿Qué ha ocurrido con estos equipos y desde cuando se encuentran en esta situación? ¿Podrán remontar este momento?

En los dos equipos el ...


La Ciudad Del Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Ciudad Del Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El fútbol siguió un proceso civilizatorio a través de dos hechos históricos fundamentales: por un lado, cuando se aprueban las famosas 17 reglas, se impulsan los torneos oficiales y se consigue la institucionalidad del fútbol; y, por otro, cuando se reconocer que este proceso solo es posible de lograrse en la ciudad. Es decir, cuando el fútbol se urbaniza, en el contexto de la revolución industrial

De aquella época para acá se ha profundizado la relación del fútbol con la ciudad, tanto que se puede afirmar –sin temor a equivocación- que tienen una relación consustancial. Muchas ciudades se representan y ...

Más Sobre La Policía, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Más Sobre La Policía, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Lo que vive la Policía Nacional en estos días es un problema de orden estructural que viene incubándose a lo largo de los años y que muestra que lo ocurrido el 30 septiembre no fue un hecho casual. La institución vive un proceso de segmentación, de fractura y de fisura institucional que se construye en estos últimos 30 años y que ahora ha hecho crisis. Lo primero: en el retorno al orden democrático en los años setenta el conjunto de las instituciones entraron en la transición a la democracia, sin la consideración de la Policía Nacional. Aquí quedaron por fuera ...

A two-day conference on the benefits of creating urbanity in weak-market cities gathers twenty-one international experts in architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design, as well as planning, policy, finance, economics, and real estate development. Participants share strategies for cities whose urban character has devolved radically due to economic, demographic, and physical change - cities that are now considered "formerly urban."


Derecho Y Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Derecho Y Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Según los entendidos no hay una sola actividad humana que no tenga relación directa o indirecta con el derecho. El caso del fútbol no es la excepción, más aún cuando en la actualidad se ha convertido en una actividad total, en la que están presentes las normas que rigen su propia actividad deportiva, pero también las vinculadas con las actividades articuladas a este deporte: la economía, la política y la cultura. En otras palabras, se trata de una actividad total que requiere de varias ramas del derecho para entender su funcionamiento; por ejemplo, hoy es imprescindible conocer el derecho mercantil ...
