Bio

I am a full time time worker, a full time student and a full time father. I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. Back in my country I was attending APEC university, studying Electrical Engineering, but I did not finish. However, I completed 138 credits. Moreover, I came to NYC in 2011 and transferred to Bronx Community College in 2012. This is my first semester in City Tech and I am fully working to graduate in Spring 2015.

ECON2505 Env Econ, SP2016 Wed. D728

ECON2505 Env Econ, SP2016 Wed. D728

This interdisciplinary course examines current environmental issues from a macroeconomic perspective, focusing on both the long and short-term economic viability of various proposals to address current environmental challenges. While the discipline of Economics serves as a central focus, the course draws extensively from the perspectives of Sociology, Architectural Technology, Environmental Control Technology, Hospitality Management (sustainable tourism), and Sustainable Technology. Traditional goals of economic efficiency will be examined in the context of the need to expand renewable energy sources, green building design and construction, sustainable agriculture and trade, resource allocation and other efforts to combat climate change on a global scale. It focuses on both the long and short-term economic viability of various proposals to address current environmental challenges drawing upon the inherent interdisciplinary connection to these vital economic issues.

Topics for the course include sample spaces and probabilities, discrete distributions (Binomial, Negative Binomial, Geometric, Hypergeometric, Poisson, and Gamma), continuous distributions (Uniform, Normal, Chi-squared), expectation and variance, hypothesis testing, interval estimation and confidence intervals. There will be extensive use of MS Excel and R, a statistical software program. At the end of the course, students should be able make meaningful connections between statistics and other areas of study, including and social sciences.

Becoming ”Green”

Becoming ”Green”

The focus of this blog is to encourage people to reduce their carbon footprint from the environment, help them to become “green” and be able to demonstrate with specific examples how important and easy is to save energy. This blog will contain the most updated information about energy efficient technologies. I will also, show with precise details how to energy efficient technologies enables people to reduce the energy consumption in their business or home.
