Today, Wrigley Field celebrates its 100th anniversary. Wow, 100 years of baseball history and reverence where take me out to the ballgame, hot dogs, pitches and love hitches have been made. The ballpark an architectural icon holding the baseball memories for 100 years.

The scoreboard produced in 1937 from turning the tiles still lives. This ballpark is celebrated for its contribution to sport and U.S. history. The field is a sustainable landmark providing knowledge of baseball yesterday, today and tomorrow.

“One hundred years ago, on April 23, 1914, Weegham Park hosted its first game as the Chi-Feds played the Kansas City Packers. It was the eighth game of the Federal League season, and 21,000 fans filled the new ballpark at Clark and Addison Streets. Catcher Art Wilson hit two home runs to back pitcher Claude Hendrix, who went the distance in a 9-1 win. Chi-Feds manager Joe Tinker also was the No. 3 hitter, going 1-for-3 and scoring a run.”

“Weeghman Park cost $250,000 to build, and it was completed in two months. It was a single-story grandstand that stretched from the left-field foul pole around home plate to the right-field pole. There was a small bleacher section in right. Today, that park, now known as Wrigley Field, will celebrate its 100th anniversary,” reports Major League Baseball (MLB).

The party begins as the historic site is commemorated and celebrated for its 100th anniversary.

Solving Problems Calls for Many Minds

Many-Minds-LANDsds

LANDsds Sustainable Voice NewsThink Series

By Dr. Tyra OldhamSustainable Thought for the Day
“The problem can be invisible because you cannot identify what you do not know. Applying many minds can identify what one is unable to detect.”
Think Lightbulb Image
The ability to garner information often requires more than one mind. Many minds together can reveal the gaps and make the leap forward to congeal an idea that one cannot.
Steve Jobs offered a quote that strikes a chord. He said, “To turn really interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines.”  Consider, good ideas are stimulated, caused or nudged through observation, communication or synthesizing disparate information into one.
The challenge to many minds is in working with one another and valuing the contribution of others. Many minds can offer up the lens that is missing to solving the problem.

Boy Causes to Rethink Airport Security as Stow Away on Hawaii Flight Wheel Well

April 22, 2014

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

Let’s talk irony on safety-and-security.  The news of the curious and curious passenger to fly to Hawaii without a ticket can garner a laugh and/or reveal the gaps in security. Big news on security breach as a “16-Year-Old Survives Unharmed Stowed Away In Wheel Well Of California To Hawaii Flight, Say FBI Officials” proving front end threat must be balanced by securing the total ecosystem.

“If it is to be believed, “A 15-year-old boy found his way onto an airport’s tarmac and climbed into a jetliner’s wheel well, then flew for five freezing hours to Hawaii. The boy, who lives in Santa Clara, Calif., hopped out of the left rear wheel well of a Boeing 767 on the Maui airport tarmac Sunday, according to the FBI. Authorities found the high school student wandering the airport grounds with no identification. He was questioned by the FBI and taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he was found to be unharmed.”

“FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu said the teen climbed into the left rear wheel well of the first plane he saw in San Jose. “He got very lucky that he got to go to Maui but he was not targeting Maui as a destination,” Simon said. He passed out in the air and didn’t regain consciousness until an hour after the plane landed in Hawaii, Simon said. When he came to, he climbed out of the wheel well and was immediately seen by airport personnel who escorted him inside where he was interviewed by the FBI, Simon said,” reports API and Huffington Post.”

A lot of intention is made in the front end of security while the back territory of the airport ecosystem goes undetected.  Consider, all the front end security that is placed on the passenger to take off shoes, go through detectors and yet, a vulnerable system has allowed one young boy to become a stow away. Business Intelligence is vital to supporting a changing security.

The view of process engineering is to assess all vulnerabilities and not to become complacent. It is easier to monitor the big items or at the top of the funnel to syphon or manage resources. The problem is that breaches occur where ever humans or boy can penetrate a critical or less critical path.

Security is the balance of technology and human dynamics  to locate the vulnerabilities that continue to persist. Every time security is determined tight is the time when analysis of gaps are necessary.

Kuwaiti Firms Focusing on Agribusiness

April 14, 2014

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

The importance of agricultural development and sustainability is important to growing populations. The importance of  oil and energy rich nations focus on food is important to share. As nations who have overcome the energy, food is critical to a sustainable path.  The news of “Some 11 Kuwaiti firms partake in OIC Agribusiness Expo” to showcase their solutions.

“Kuwait’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry has brought on board 11 local companies to partake in the Agribusiness Expo for Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  Launching the event was Makkah region’s Director General for Agricultural Affairs Hassan bin Obaid Sanqouf, on behalf of the Saudi Minister of Agriculture Fahad Balghenaim. The opening was attended by several Saudi and OIC member nation officials, including Kuwait’s Charge d’Affaires at the consulate in Jeddah Sultan Al-Subaie.  The event, held between April 13 and 16, is being organised by the OIC’s Morocco-based Islamic Centre for Development of Trade (ICDT) in collaboration with a Saudi events management company.”

Chief organizer of the Kuwaiti contributions Mohammad Al-Khaldi said that the country is taking part in the exhibition with a huge stall that will be showcasing 10 leading local companies operating in the food industry and one in packaging. Kuwait hopes to make its national products more known to international markets through the move, he said, expressing delight at participating in the event, as it encourages “continuing commercial and investment cooperation with Saudi Arabia,” reports Kuwait News.

The importance to developing sustainable nations after the road to energy solutions is understood is planning the role of agriculture. Agriculture is critical to advancing the needs of the populations for healthy access to food and water.  Food development and land utilization is primary to the sustainable nexus.

The plan to develop sustainable food through agribusiness solutions is on balance with energy solutions.  The ability to grow, package and distribute food along with managing agricultural byproducts, as well as its waste is relevant to sustainable nations. Foods answers where do oil rich nations tread for the next focus after energy is considered.

The Five Most Important E’s

The Big E_ Image from The Big E

April 13, 2014

LANDsds Sustainable Voice NewsThink Series

By Dr. Tyra OldhamSustainable Thought for the Day

“The five most important E’s that have sustainable impact on our lives are Energy, Environment, Education, Economics and the Efficacy to produce a sustainable society.”

Think Lightbulb Image

It is important to support, design and produce a sustainable world that leads to efficacy within every process, system and outcome driving sustainability. These E’s drive and support our world. I contend without these E’s society ceases to grow, innovate and survive.

Consider, how these E’s support our day-to-day infrastructure, live’s and society. These E’s are under gird the resources and systems that are easily underestimated and overlooked within the sustainable big picture. Sustainability demands that we invest in continuous improvement to consider what we do today effect on tomorrow.

Beach House Cubed Architecture Connected to Environment

Casa P12 Box Like Beach House Near Lima, Peru by Martin Dulanto Arquitecto

April 13, 2014

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

The design of efficient housing to expand our understanding of  architecture on what we consider as home is expanding based on energy efficiency, environment, sustainable construction and green building. The design of a “Box-Like Beach House Near Lima, Peru by Martin Dulanto Arquitecto” can innovate how we utilize sustainable designs to lead to the construction of  affordable-to-high cost new homes not for the beach but in the everyday delivery of environmental synthesis.

The beauty of the  “P12 House is a box-like two-storey beach house near Lima, Peru designed by Martin Dulanto Arquitecto. Fully-connected to the outdoors, the construction features several “cubes”, rectangular-shaped blocks at different scales made of wood and exposed concrete. The main “cube” comprises the living room and it represents the core of the project. Overlooking the serene beaches and the park situated in front of the house, P12 breaks the monotony of “normal” house design, erasing the boundaries between environments by simply removing the walls. Naturally, the sandy beaches and the seashore seem closer to the viewer then they really are.”

“Asides from the living room, there are other medium sized cubes integrated into the house plan (comprising the main bedroom for instance or the kitchen), which divide the entire living space into smaller units without disrupting the unity and wholeness of it. Interior feels airy and uncluttered. Tastefully decorated, the social area exhales a contemporary feel: soft furnishings in earthy walls marked with yellow dashes, glass tables and railing, luscious floors. The house’s basement area accommodates 3 bedrooms with corresponding bathrooms and a courtyard with reflecting pool, service bedroom and service bathroom. P12 also features an outdoor barbecue area and a deck and a pool,” delivers Freshome.

The design of open cube structures can lend to the nexuses between energy, environment and efficiency in living. The commitment of architects and builders to produce homes and buildings that embrace the environments is one focus toward mitigating emissions and waste.

New home designs can change the way we begin to live and engage responsibly to our environment for bettering practice, processes and promoting optimization in design-build solutions. We are entering the age of simplicity where the complex is in the designs and delivery of efficient solutions that are seamless to the user.

Bonn Climate Change

Bonn Climate Change Conference

Bonn Climate Change Conference – June 2014


One rest day allocated during June meeting

The Best Ideas Judged Are Created

LANDsds Sustainable Voice NewsThink Series

By Dr. Tyra OldhamSustainable Thought for the Day

 

“Ideas are unrealized are filled in the void by other ideas that were produced when others failed to act.”

Think Lightbulb Image

Ideas are always created but the willingness to produce an idea takes courage to follow through.  The vast ideas lost to those in the grave are cures to ills, solutions to problems and the answers to the questions.  Jim Rohn said, “Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.”

The willingness to pursue an idea is work and commitment but, when one’s ideas are not produced others are entered into the void. The best ideas are the ones that can be identified and yet, wonderful ideas never offered can leave the world at a loss not be qualified or quantified. The best is to share your ideas for a better world on time can know if what was created has value.
