Ivy commented recently in an interview, “Design has played an integral role in public health throughout the course of the history of the U.S., dating back to the draining of swamps in Washington, D.C., to the Olmsted design of Central Park in New York. The idea with Central Park was to eradicate substandard housing and normalize a part of the city that was challenged. Originally, it was not primarily a recreational space -- it was conceived in the context of improving public health.”

There are an incredible number of ways that architects can promote better living, and these include designing buildings capable of providing disaster relief, promoting exercise, reducing energy use, maximizing natural light and fresh air and delivering recreational options. Ivy and the AIA will continue to follow a mandate to expand the role of architects in the foreseeable future.

Boraie Development Will Open a $79M Residential Tower in Newark with Shaquille O’Neal

Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal surely has made his mark in basketball, but now he has decided to expand in his hometown’s real estate. Last April, he attended the ceremony for topping off the building, along with the team of professionals who worked with him in the project. Among them included the mayor of Newark and Boraie Development Vice President Wasseem Boraie.


The 7’1” talked about the residential building in detail and how he decided to make it happen. According to him, his mother urged him to make the city beautiful again. The apartment complex will feature more than 20 units, and it will tower over the other buildings in the area. It has been over 50 years since the last time Newark had a high rise in it. For more details visit Crunchbase.


Sam Boraie is responsible for developing the building, which is just a few steps from the historic New Jersey Performing Arts Center. It also allows easy access to the Hahne & Co. building, which has Whole Foods. Colloquially, the project is known as Shaq Towers, but its formal name is One Rector Street. It will soon welcome renters by the end of the year, but potential residents can start the application process in September.


According to Wasseem Boraie, the company purchased the property first, which was a place where the old Science Park High School was situated about ten years ago. However, even after the acquisition of the property, the construction had to be postponed. It only began in October 2017, which was the right time for the building to start, according to Boraie.


Boraie Development has always been known for being methodical. During the waiting period, the team worked around gathering the supplies and making sure they would have everything they need in case the construction would take place.


After the Shaq Towers, the former NBA player who is now a host, actor, and investor among others, has announced his plans to continue developing more real estate buildings. He will be working once again with Boraie Development, and this time it will involve a mixed-use building, which will have an even bigger budget of $150 million. It will have a total of 350 apartment units with 35 stories.


For decades, Boraie Development is the company behind several important buildings not only in Newark but the whole state of New Jersey. Boraie is a family-owned firm that provides various services from property management to real estate marketing for institutions and private individuals. You can visit their website

How Penelope Kokkinides Experience In Medicine Helps Transform Innovacare Health

During the third quarter of 2016, Innovacare Health, in an attempt to freshen out its top brass leadership appointed Penelope Kokkinides as its new Chief Administrative Officer. She assumed this position alongside Jonathan Meyers who settled for the Chief Actuary officer and Mike Sortino as the Chief Accounting Officer. Her leadership abilities and efforts to make Innovacare Health the leading Puerto Rican health provider have continually paid off, culminating with her invitation to the White House.


Penelope before joining InnovaCare Inc


Before joining Innovacare, Penelope Kokkinides had already spent close to two decades in the healthcare sector. Most of this time was spent in government service where she specialized in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. She particularly made a perfect candidate for Innovacare due to her vast experience in designing and managing healthcare programs and operations while improving the organizational efficiency.

Penelope also takes credit for the development of the health model currently used AmeriChoice, a UnitedHealth Group subsidiary, while working as their Vice President for disease and care management department. The Columbian University MPH graduate had also worked as the Chief Operating Officer at Touchstone medical before moving on to Centerlight Health Systems where she served as CEO and executive vice president.


Kokkinides takes the Puerto Rican health campaign to the White House.


In 2017, Penelope Kokkinides, together with a delegation of seven other women-medical professionals, had a roundtable discussion with President Trump at the White House. The meeting aimed at deliberating on the role of women in promoting healthcare industry. Her colleagues during these deliberations included healthcare executives and nationally acclaimed caregivers. She used her time to express the plight of healthcare in Puerto Rico citing that the island was in dire need of extra funding lest the locals turned to migrating to the rest of the States in search of affordable medical aid.

Penelope also brought to the president’s attention the fact that Puerto Rico’s health funding cuts implemented since 2011 were disproportionate to the rest of the States. The long-term health practitioner drew these facts from her hospital's records given that Innovacare’s all-popular Medicare advantage plan serves close to 600,000 citizens.

This devotion to health care on the Island paid off days later when the government announced improved adjustments to the Puerto Rican health system. Penelope Kokkinides bold representation of the Island is the boldest yet and its fruits are now visible. The move has also endeared her to the Puerto Rican masses as their unofficial healthcare representative.

The Trabuco And It’s Practical Use For Siege Warfare

Military commanders from the Middle Ages often had to deal with walled cities and heavy fortified castles. These fortifications were extremely difficult to defeat with regular foot soldiers. This was especially true for castles with moats or fortresses that were built high on mountain tops. A military commander would usually have to sacrifice many men to overtake these areas. This was not a practical way to wage war. Eventually, military commanders learned about the trabuco and their problems were solved.


The trabuco is an old siege weapon that was used to hurl various projectiles at enemy from great distances. A military commander no longer had to sacrifice valuable men and resources when trying to overtake a heavily defended enemy position. They could simply sit back and then hurl large stones or fiery pitch at their enemies. As long as they had something to shoot at the enemy, their army would remain relatively safe during the conflict.

Trabuco is the Portuguese word for trebuchet. These weapons were first created by the Chinese and slowly made their way into Europe. Once they arrived in Europe, various kingdoms and empires made it a point to add these magnificent weapons to their armies. With a trabuco military commanders wreak havoc on their foes who did not have these armaments. Some armies used the trabuco so well that they conquered many villages, towns and small kingdoms according to The trabuco was the perfect weapon for defeating enemies on the battlefield and for laying siege on enemy positions.
