Kyna Leski The Cornell Note Method The Cornell Note Method has been covered pretty extensively across the internet, but as your “one stop shop” for maximizing (hacking) your college experience, we’re obligated to cover it. Since adopting Cornell notes this semester, processing and reviewing my lecture notes has become a systematized and painless task. Developped in the 1950’s by Walter Pauk, author of How to Study in College, the Cornell Note Method splits an ordinary piece of paper into 3 sections; notes, main points and summary. By following this system you are forced to consider the big picture and avoid getting caught up in the finite details. I’ve gotten plenty of odd looks and questions about the paper I use when taking notes, but those who I’ve convinced to give it a shot now swear by it. Give the Cornell Method a shot in the next lecture you attend and post your thoughts in the comment section below.

Also remember to let yourself off the hook. 5. Don’t let yourself be taken advantage of because you are a precious angel from the heavens and better than some yahoo who mooches off of other people’s generosity. 6. As my friend puts it, “Slow your roll about the trivial things, collective world.” 7. If you are actually tired then go home, put on your bedtime romper, brush your teeth and sleep. 8. Some of them weren’t even that awful — just an overall “meh.” 9. 10. That’s right, I just quoted Lilo & Stitch. 11. 12. 13. 14. Not everyone is Sasha Fierce. 15. 16.

Sofia by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects Sofia is a building designed by architect Cesar Pelli for One Development Group. Located in San Pedro, Mexico, this building not only was designed by an internationally renowned architect, it also has the most generous specifications in every aspect: from automated appliances, to Leed certifications. Our task was to communicate such sophistication and exclusiveness to their potential buyers. Sofia's identity is formed by three very important axes: Logotype: the keys and the coat of arms are inspired by San Pedro's coat of arms. Both the attention to detail and the brand's elements convey the greatness of Sofia's architectural project.

It was conceived by just mindlessly stacking 350mm square. Lumber is extremely versatile. In an ordinary wooden architecture, lumber is effectively differentiated according to functions in various localities precisely because it is so versatile. Columns, beams, foundations, exterior walls, interior walls, ceilings, floorings, insulations, furnishings, stairs, window frames, meaning all. There are no separations of floor, wall, and ceiling here. This bungalow no longer fits the category of wooden architecture.
