Chelsea nearer to EPL title after Tottenham loss

No Comments

first_imgLONDON, England (AP):Chelsea were handed a clearer path to the Premier League title yesterday after a disjointed Tottenham lost 1-0 at West Ham to end a nine-match winning run.The trophy can now be secured for the second time in three seasons by Chelsea over the next week – before Tottenham play again – if Antonio Conte’s side beat Middlesbrough on Monday and West Bromwich Albion on Friday.Chelsea remain four points ahead of Tottenham and have a game in hand. Tottenham’s challenge now is holding on for its highest finish in 54 years in the remaining three games.”It’s nearly impossible,” defender Eric Dier said of Tottenham’s pursuit of a first title since 1961.Mauricio Pochettino’s players were looking lethargic at the Olympic Stadium when Manuel Lanzini punished them in the 65th minute by pouncing after Aaron Cresswell’s cross wasn’t cleared. It was the first time Tottenham had trailed in a league game in a month and the damage would have been heavier had goalkeeper Hugo Lloris not made a diving save to deny Jonathan Calleri.”We started the second half a little bit sloppy, we conceded in the space and the way we conceded the goal in this type of football, when you are fighting for the big things, you feel disappointed,” Pochettino said. “We tried, it was difficult. The performance was not the best.”The visitors could find no way back as West Ham celebrated a signature win in their troubled first season at the main stadium for the 2012 Olympics which Tottenham had tried to secure in a bitter battle that ended up in court.UP SIX PLACESWest Ham turned on the style to foil a Tottenham side usually so energetic and menacing to ease any lingering relegation fears. The victory hauled Slaven Bilic’s team up six places to ninth in the standings after days of public debate about the manager’s futureWhat has proved costly for Tottenham are the dropped points in the opening months of the season. Tottenham were fifth in the standings after 18 games but have won 13 of their last 17 games to unexpectedly challenge Chelsea for the title, outmuscling bigger-spending rivals with a wage bill lower than their rivals in the top six.Now Tottenham are looking down again, holding an eight-point lead over Liverpool with three games to go. Tottenham are still set for a second consecutive season in the Champions League for the first time. But for the second year in a row, the team’s title bid has faltered in the closing weeks of the season.last_img read more

Over 8000 Guyanese infected with HIV – Health Minister

first_img…Guyana to participate in UN High Level Meeting to end AIDSwith some 8000 persons said to be living with HIV/AIDS in Guyana, Government, through the Public Health Ministry, is hoping that a high-level meeting set to be hosted by the United Nations in New York next month willPublic Health Minister, Dr George Nortonaid in the push towards total eradication.Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton said Guyana and countries across the Caribbean remained in second place, having the highest number of HIV/AIDS cases. They fall just beneath the Sub-Saharan Africa Region. On an average, there are about 5000 new cases diagnosed each year, with at least 200 persons dying from AIDS-related complications.The Minister, along with UN Secretary General Special Envoy, Dr Edward Green and Country Manager UNAIDS for Guyana and Suriname Martin Oudit, met with journalists on Wednesday to brief them on the High Level Meeting. The officials also spoke to the state of affairs in Guyana, as it relates to the epidemic.According to Dr Norton, it is important for Guyana to make representation at the High Level Meeting slated for June 8-10 at the UN Headquarters.At the meeting, UN Member States will be expected to adopt a political declaration on ending AIDS, to scale up the pace of progress and reassess time-bound targets.The UNAIDS Country Manager for Guyana and Suriname said by participating in the meeting to end AIDS, Guyana would be taking part in a unique moment in history. He said focus must remain strong to ensure that gains of the national AIDS response are leveraged rather than lost during this period of transition and hope.He said Guyana has made significant gains in its HIV response over the past decade. According to UNAIDS estimates, in 2015, about three of every five people living with HIV were receiving Antiretroviral therapy (ARV).Meanwhile, Dr Green told journalists that the meeting will attempt to move the world toward the end of AIDS across the world.“What the meeting will do in 2016, it will try to advance our direction in the AIDS epidemic. In 2000, the epidemic was sort of despair. Having the disease was like despair. This is not the case in 2016,” Dr Green said.He related that by the end of 2015, when the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) came to an end, there were advances and reductions in death rates and increased access to ARVs. He said they exceeded that target and AIDS related deaths were reduced by 42 per cent.According to him, the position now reached is that at the High Level Meeting there will be hope for people living with HIV/AIDS. The UN Secretary General Special Envoy said it was also hoped that at the meeting, Guyana and other countries would be able to achieve the objective of fast tracking the response to HIV/AIDS.“We are hoping that at least 90 per cent of the people with HIV be tested and of those, 90 per cent are treated by 2020, bringing the viral load low enough as not to transmit.”Dr Green said “fast tracking” spoke to testing and treatment. It also speaks to prevention. Prevention strategy, he said, means that each country should contribute at least quarter of the budget on health to prevention. “Prevention and treatment are some of the most important issues,” he noted.Another issue that will be focused on is human rights. “People affected and infected by AIDS have human rights and, therefore, the rights to access affordable medicines that is an affordable right. It is the right not to be discriminated against, whether at the workplace, the health centres or through the laws that exist in the country,” Dr Green noted.He said these issues help to discriminate against people and leave many infected persons marginalised. He also said it was hoped that at the end of the meeting, “we will come out with a global consensus of how we can work towards ending HIV/AIDS globally”.last_img read more

Ocean fishing

first_imgSan Diego Landings Long-range fishing is phenomenal. Captain Tommy Rothery of the Polaris Supreme called the present bite for yellowfin tuna near Cabo San Lucas the best he’s ever seen. “Most of our guys on board have released around 20 yellowfin tuna over 100 pounds,” Rothery said. “Most of the fish released have been in the 160- to 190-pound class.” On the Royal Polaris, skipper Frank Lo Preste said on one day nearly 80 huge tuna were released and more than a dozen topping 200 pounds were kept. “We caught fish just about all day long,” Lo Preste said. “Flat calm weather and as good of fishing as I’ve ever seen.” Closer to home, 15- to 30-pound yellowtail began breezing around the Coronado Islands. Seaforth Sportfishing had several boats call in with 20 or more yellowtail, most taken on the yo-yo iron. Sumo Jr. lures in blue and white, scrambled egg and dorado pattern also have been effective.

Exhaust-Only Ventilation Systems

No Comments

first_imgAfter trying a variety of ventilation approaches, I’ve settled on exhaust-only ventilation systems with ventilation rates that are on the low side of most recommendations.Most third-party certified green building standards require homes to have mechanical ventilation systems capable of providing 7.5 cfm of fresh air per occupant plus 1 cfm per 100 square feet of conditioned space. As explained in Martin Holladay’s excellent overview of ventilation options, this requirement is based on ventilation rates established by ASHRAE Standard 62.2.Ventilation schemes inspire vigorous debate, as evidenced by the 40 responses to Martin’s article. This is how I do it and why. Other builders may have differing climates and indoor air pollutants to contend with and will therefore choose different solutions. I’m still struggling with several issues, including the question of passive air inlets.You don’t want to bring in too much humid airHere in North Carolina, the outdoor air is often oppressively humid. Because we’ve eliminated many of the sources of indoor air contamination, I feel that the ventilation rate recommended by ASHRAE 62.2 rate is excessive — especially when work and school schedules often mean that a home’s occupancy level is low.My solution has been to use a simple and inexpensive form of exhaust-only ventilation controlled by very robust and attractive Lutron MS-OPS5AM or the slightly less attractive Watt Stopper RS-250 occupancy sensors with adjustable timers. These controls give me the fresh air I need when people are in the home but automatically scale back when the people are gone.Do the math firstTo provide 7.5 cfm per occupant, we need to provide 7.5 x 60 = 450 cubic feet per occupant per hour. That can be provided by a 110-cfm bath fan (hood tested at 80 cfm actual) for 5.6 minutes. If the average individual spends 12 hours per day at home and 12 hours away from home, we need to run that bath fan 5.6 minutes times 12 hours — or 67.5 minutes per day — to provide adequate fresh air for that occupant.If some of the occupants are teenagers or adult children who only occupy the home intermittently, there should be a mechanism by which the house can dynamically respond to variations in occupancy levels. Time-delay occupancy sensors (used as bath fan switches) allow the home to respond to varying occupancies without conscious input from the homeowners.We set the master bath fan at a 30-minute time delay. This is based on the assumption that it will get triggered on average four times a day by two occupants.We put the kids’ bath fan on a 15-minute delay and the powder room on a 15-minute delay. If the kids are away at school, there will be no additional ventilation (since their bath will not see any use), but during a family reunion the venting will be stepped up automatically.We use Energy Star rated 110-cfm Panasonic bath fans, but any Energy Star rated bath fan will do. Our flow-hood testing has shown that a 110-cfm fan actually removes about 80 cfm, so that is what we design for. It is essential to have your Energy Star certifier or HVAC contractor verify the output of the fan to confirm the efficacy of your timer calculations. You may also want to adjust the timer settings upwards if the homeowners have a lot of houseplants or pets.This is just one way to do it — there are many different approachesOur goal is to provide balanced and filtered makeup air for the exhaust-only ventilation system, so we provide designed exhaust and a balancing intake.Some builders put a filtered fresh-air duct from the exterior to the return-air duct of the HVAC system. However, with this approach the volume of makeup air changes with the operation of the HVAC system rather than with building occupancy. On the hottest and coldest days of the year, when the HVAC system is operating for many hours per day, the home does not need additional makeup air.Joe Lstiburek’s Building Science Corporation and Masco’s System Vision program advise using a FanCycler timer combined with an intake vent from the exterior to the return-air plenum. During the swing seasons (spring and fall), when the HVAC blower rarely operates, the FanCycler energizes the HVAC fan on a schedule to assure adequate ventilation. The FanCycler control also shuts a motorized damper when necessary (usually in very cold or very hot weather) to prevent overventilation.According to Brian Coble of Advaned Energy, however, homeowners tend to disable these devices. (We designed Coble’s house and therefore got to spend a lot of time talking building science with him.)Some builders, especially those in the North, design their ventilation systems around Energy Recovery Ventilators, generally using them in place of bath fans. This is a very valid solution if you can locate the filters in easily accessible locations and if your budget can handle the $2,000 installed cost.Passive air intakes are still a good idea (I think …)We still use a passive intake air vent to provide for the clothes dryer (which needs up to 200 cfm of makeup air) and the range hood (which can need well over 100 cfm). Even a sealed-combustion wood stove needs enough air to minimize smoking when you are loading the wood.We know that the houses we build do have air leaks; flow-hood testing on homes with air changes of less than 2 ach at 50 pascals depressurization (<2 ach-50) shows the passive intake vents typically provide 50 cfm for every 80 removed from house by bath fans. we generally locate a behind dryer in laundry room. we choose this location because is used much more than range hood and don’t want to use conditioned air dry clothes. we butterfly dampers prevent vent back-drafting. lately, though, we’ve switched cape dampers, also called “nylon sock” (see photo supply information below). these are sensitive durable dampers. they make that irritating “tink tink” sound as open close. sock can be located directly wall horizontal orientation, so end up taking less room installation. (butterfly need oriented vertically little difficult integrate into room.) to keep pollen insects entering house, install washable range-hood filters. easy inspection cleaning, filters installed at an accessible on exterior of house. Variations and ambiguityMartin’s suggestion that we eliminate passive intakes and rely instead on random envelope leakage is very compelling. This is an issue I’ve been struggling with, and one that I have been arguing with my Energy Star / Builders Challenge rater about.One cold-climate builder told me that he pulls his fresh-air intake through a long section of six-inch steel duct in his conditioned crawl. This appraoch pre-warms the incoming air, reducing the chance of cooling the laundry room too much in cold weather.When we build on a sealed crawl space we will generally install a Panasonic 80-cfm bath fan in the crawl space to continually cycle 80 cfm of air from the conditioned space into the crawl space and out through a 4-in. steel duct. This appraoch keeps the crawl space depressurized with respect to the conditioned space above. There are a lot of variations on the concept, and many have value. There is still much ambiguity in the building code, and in some cases the intent of the building code and green building standards are unclear.With green building’s emphasis on eliminating sources of indoor air pollution, a good argument can be made that it’s acceptable to ventilate a certified green home at a rate that is less than the rate recommend by the ASHRAE 62.2 standard. If I can use really good and quiet bath fans and a few $32 occupancy sensors to achieve my indoor air quality objective — without the cost of an ERV — then I can use that money for a better thermal envelope.Sources of supply:R.E.Williams Industrial SupplyPanasonic fan/light, $149Cape back-draft damper, $21.50 Lutron MS-OPS5AM occupancy sensor, $32 Watt stopper RS-250, $32 (not as attractive as the Lutron)We’ve had an unacceptable failure rate with the Cooper 6109 occupancy sensors sold in the big box stores, and we now avoid them.last_img read more
