Robert Ivy Predicts The Collaboration Of Health Care And Architecture

According to Robert Ivy, CEO of the American Institute of Architects, architects now and in the future will work with the medical community to change how people interact with their environment in a much more healthier way. Consider the following facts. Greater than 35 percent of Americans are obese. No less than 34 percent of the nation’s population is overweight. Seventeen percent, or more, of the nation’s youth are obese. At least 10 percent of the population has diabetes, and another eight million are not even aware they are diabetic.
 
While these are all medical conditions, Robert Ivy thinks that architectural design can provide an answer to help combat chronic disease. “Design thinking” could be the answer. For example, architects can design health care facilities that inspire physical exercise. According to archdaily.com, architects can design structures so that they let in natural light. This can help increase productivity and attention. These changes reflect a new era of how architects and health care providers are beginning to work together.
 
MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio is another example of architectural/health care collaboration. The center will incorporate a number of social activities, buy food from local urban farms, revamp parks and bike paths, and add fitness centers throughout the system.

The High Line of Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood is also working with architects to make the best use of space and land. This area is a vibrant public place that shares an elevated rail line. Consider the fact too that medical schools are beginning to push for training in undergraduate courses that teach architectural design. Architects can work with industry professionals to help design a better future for all of us. Tomorrow’s architect will work with policymakers who commit to building a better environment.
 
Climate change is likely to have a major influence on critical infrastructure as well. Robert Ivy and the American Institute of Architects feel that it is time to put policies in place that work that speak to human health and the changing environment. The American Institute of Architect’s mission is to help advance the qualify of life for Americans, and to protect the safety, health, and welfare of its citizens. The AIA formed in 1857.

The American Institute of Architects is one of the leading professional organizations in the world today. The organization was established with the focus on developing and improving the sector. Currently has a membership that is in excess of 90,000 people. Members of the American Institute of Architects will receive a wide range of benefits.

Louis Chenevert’s Rise to the Top and his Accomplishments

Louis Chenevert is considered one of the most influential businessmen in the world. The legacy he left in the UTC is a legendary one. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Louis Chenevert attended the HEC Montreal, which is affiliated with the University of Montreal. Here, he studied Production Management which he clearly not intended to let go to waste.

He got a job with General Motors immediately after school, where he worked for 14 years. In 1993, he was hired by an engine manufacturing company: Pratt & Whitney. During his time here, his hard work led to his promotion to the President of the Company. This is because during the time of his employment to the company, it was a recession period and he managed to improve the performance of the unit he was serving.

Pratt & Whitney was a subsidiary of the United Technologies Corporation (UTC). His performance as the President of Pratt & Whitney led to his nomination as the CEO of UTC. In UTC, he improved the value of the impressive shares of the firm to $117 which were initially $37 when he joined. He also made significant acquisitions in the firm that greatly improved the domination of UTC in the market.

While in UTC, Louis Chenevert knew that the only way he could achieve his goals in the company was through the assistance of the employees. This is why when other companies were busy conducting layoffs to maintain their businesses in the market, he moved the employees of UTC to Connecticut.

Aware of the rising Global Warming, Louis Chenevert took a step that he advised the other firms to take. He reduced the water consumption by 53% and the greenhouse gases emission by 26%. As a result, the products of UTC became eco-friendly and became marketable to other nations around the world.

During his reign, Louis Chenevert was awarded severally for his success. After his nomination as the CEO of UTC, the National Building Museum awarded him in 2009. In 2011, the HEC Montreal awarded him with a doctorate honoris causa. In the same year, the Space Technology magazine and the Aviation Week named him ‘’Person of the Year’’.

Trump Pardons Arpaio But That Isn’t The End of This Story

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona has long been known as America’s toughest sheriff has once again proven that the rules of the system don’t apply to him. No longer the Sheriff after 24 years with the title, Arpaio was convicted of the federal felony of criminal contempt by a Federal Judge. President Trump has decided to pardon Arpaio with no jail time or other consequence.

Arpaio was the law in Maricopa County for many years. He was known for his strong arm tactics and racial profiling of Hispanics and Latinos. Arpaio is a staunch advocate for erasing illegal immigration by any means, even if it means violating civil or human rights.

When he lost his 7th bid for re-election, many thought it was a turning point in his getting away with corrupt police work.

One such act that reflected Arpaio’s disregard for the law was the case against Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. These two successful businessmen have long been advocates for the Hispanic and Latino population in their state and beyond. Lacey and Larkin who own the media group, Village Voice Media publish a newspaper called the Phoenix Sun.

This publication has exposed the misdeeds of Sherrif Arpaio and his department for many years, which greatly annoyed the great sheriff. The paper printed statistics that proved racial profiling focused on Hispanics and Latinos. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Twitter

When the Phoenix Sun learned that a grand jury has been set up to target the paper, its editors, reporters, and subscribers, Lacey and Larkin decided to make it public. They knew this was a risk but they felt strongly that the first amendment rights were in jeopardy.

In response to exposing, Arpaio had his friends in the County Attorney Office to issue arrest warrants. Lacey and Larkin were both arrested at their homes on October 18th, 2007. Carried away in unmarked cars with Mexican plates, the two were booked and placed in jail.

Public outcry over the arrests was intense and the two men were released in less than a day. Thus began a long court case that Lacey and Larkin refused to give up on. They were finally completely exonerated by the 9th Court of Appeals in 2012 when the court ruled they had been unlawfully arrested and detained without any probable cause.

The pair were awarded $3.7 million dollars in an undeniable victory against the police system in Maricopa.

Many people would have been satisfied with this settlement and gone back to their lives as usual. Lacey and Larkin, however, decided to take most of the money and create the Frontera Fund.

This organization has been a powerful force in the protection of individual rights of minorities. Lacey and Larkin have vowed to continue their fight in defense of the first amendment and human rights.

President Trump pardoned Arpaio, in spite of the allegations and documented proof of his illegal ways. Arpaio has long been a supporter of Trump, dating back to the “Birther’ controversy regarding President Obama.

It seems his devotion has proven very helpful, but it is good to know that there are still men like Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey who defend those who can’t always defend themselves.

Billboard Magazine Recognizes Desiree Perez

As one of the hardest working women in Hip-Hop, and in the music industry in general, Desiree Perez was acknowledged at the end of 2017 in Billboard Magazine’s expansive ‘Top Women Executives in the Music Industry’ list. Alongside such notable names as Atlantic Records CEO, Julie Greenwald, and Universal Music Group’s Executive VP, Michele Anthony, Desiree is proclaimed one the industries best of the best. Perez has long made a name for herself in the business side of the industry by being a tough negotiator, intelligent business woman, and the multi-faceted, quick witted, corporate arm of Sean ‘Jay Z’ Carter himself.

Perez has a long history with the multi-platinum selling rapper, and has many times been called ‘the woman behind the man’ in terms of Carter’s business successes. Perez’s presence and business savvy have been so influential on Jay that many argue without her keen sense for negotiation Hov would have never gone from all star Emcee to the Hip-Hop mogul he is today. Desiree’s inclusion in the Hova Circle of Influence, a select grouping of Jay’s most trusted managers across the board of his companies and corporations, along with her place within Rihanna’s notoriously tight nit circle, showcase just what a industry powerhouse Perez is.

She has achieved these business relationships by knowing her skills and sticking by them. Her most recent conquest, for legendary Hip-hop label, Roc Nation, for whom Perez sits as the Chief Operating Officer, was the renewal of a lucrative contract between the company and LiveNation. Perez also served as the negotiator of the original deal ten years ago, which subsequently proved profitable for both sides, as has the latest renewal. Perez also traversed a Samsung touring partnership with Roc Nation artist Rihanna, resulting in the founding of a business relationship and personal friendship between the two.

Our Education Secretary Has Earned Her Position

Betsy Devos may be a relative newcomer to Washington, but there is no doubt that she is learning the ropes rather quickly. The President of the American Federation of Teachers said that there is a tendency to undermine her because she is so polite in public. She may come across as plain spoken, she said, but she is very potent and powerful.

 

Betsy Devos was opposed to Trump’s decision to reverse the Obama policy about transgender bathroom usage. However, she did not show her opposition to the outside world. This is an example of two things. First of all, it shows how she is ready to stand up to people who are more powerful than her and have more connections than her when she knows what is right. Second of all, she may be publicly a soft spoken figure, but in her day to day life, she is a fighter who will do whatever needs to be done in order to accomplish things.

 

Betsy Devos is a supporter of private schools and charter schools. She believes that by supporting private and charter schools through government programs, such as by giving them tax vouchers, poor students who otherwise would not be able to afford a private school will have more choices of schools to go to. This will increase the chances of them getting a good education. She has had success in many places. Detroit, for example, has the largest concentration of charter schools in the nation. Betsy Devos has openly said that the majority of students in America go to public schools and that this would not change. However, she said that it is vital to give students who are exploring other options the ability to choose a private or charter school. It is clear that public schools in the United States sometimes operate on a lower level than public schools in other developed countries. One way to give students a greater chance to succeed would be by supporting private or charter schools, thereby reducing or eliminating tuition costs.

Betsy Devos and her husband Dick Devos are also major philanthropists. They have given away one hundred and thirty nine million dollars to charity. A large portion of this has gone towards supporting education reform. Other causes that she supports include children’s hospitals, arts and culture, and more. She also donates to politicians that support education reform.
