first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (CMC):Marquee West Indies opener Chris Gayle extended his decent form in the Big Bash League, but his Melbourne Renegades crashed to a ten-wicket defeat to Perth Scorchers yesterday.The left-handed Gayle stroked 41 off 35 balls to help Renegades up to 170 for four off their 20 overs, after they were sent in at Docklands Stadium.He struck two fours and three sixes and put on 98 off 68 deliveries for the first wicket with captain Aaron Finch, who slammed 72 off 48 balls with six fours and three sixes. Gayle was one of two wickets to fall in the 12th over off successive deliveries, but Finch and wicketkeeper Matthew Wade, who hit 35 from 25 balls, added a further 47 for the third wicket to keep the innings afloat.West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo chipped in with 14 from ten balls at the death.In reply, captain Michael Klinger smashed an unbeaten 90 from 58 balls with seven fours and three sixes, while opening partner Shaun Marsh cracked 76 not out off 54 deliveries, as Scorchers motored to their target in the penultimate over.Medium pacer Bravo went wicket-less from his four overs, which cost 35 runs.last_img read more

first_imgTwo bank robbers who resembled villains from a James Bond movie robbed a La Crescenta bank at gunpoint Thursday, officials said. The “007 Bandits” robbed the U.S. Bank inside Vons supermarket at 3233 Foothill Blvd. at 4:15 p.m., FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said Friday. While one robber held a teller at gunpoint – silently, like Bond villain Odd Job – his partner instructed tellers to hand over cash, in large bills, which he placed in a beige canvas bag. The second robber either had silver-capped teeth or wore a silver grill on his teeth. FBI investigators nicknamed him Jaws, after a Bond villain who had silver teeth. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Tutu to help Island set up TRC

first_imgArchbishop Desmond Tutu is a well knownadvocate for peace around the world. As chairperson of the TRC, Tutu helpedmany victims and perpetrators to healfrom the atrocities of apartheid.(Images: tutufoundationuk.org)Khanyi MagubaneNobel Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu will soon visit the Solomon Islands to help set up a Truth and Reconciliation Commission.The Solomon Islands form part of a group just off Australia (Fiji and Papua New Guinea are the more famous of these islands), which make up Melanesia.The retired archbishop will help the Solomon Islands government set up the commission after years of ethnic tensions which have divided the country.The prime minister of Solomon Islands, Derek Sikua, invited Tutu to share his expertise and help the Islanders to reconcile with each other.Tutu’s personal assistant, Dan Vaughan, has confirmed that the peace campaigner has accepted the invitation: “The archbishop plans to visit the Solomon Islands on 29 and 30 April at the invitation of the prime minister.” The Nobel laureate had planned to visit the Solomon Islands last year but had to reschedule.Tutu played an instrumental role in South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission in the late 1990s. He is widely considered an authority on a number of issues including poverty and HIV/Aids in developing countries.Closing the violence chapterThe political history of the Solomon Islands can be described as complex at best.The geographic and linguistic fragmentation of the various islands creates particular strains within the Islands’ political system.There are currently 50 members of parliamentary constituencies – 47 from electorates in the 10 provinces of the country, and three from the capital Honiara – the Honiara Town Council.Defections from one party to another by members have in the past weakened the political system, leaving long periods of political instability.In 1997, a coalition government was formed under the Solomon Islands Alliance for Change, and headed by the new Prime Minister, Bartholomew Ulufa’alu. Twenty-two parliamentary incumbents who had failed in their bid for re-election to Parliament formed their own faction groups.By late 1998, political conditions in the country had deteriorated badly and armed ethnic factions began fighting what amounted to a civil war.A group calling itself the Isatabu Freedom Movement sought to displace the ethnic Malaitans from the main island of Guadalcanal, a province of the Solomon Islands. Although the Malaitans were not natives of Guadalcanal, they had economic and political clout.In 1999, Isatabu started a campaign of ethnic cleansing, displacing thousands of Malaitans and killing several of the natives.In response, the Malaitans formed their own paramilitary force, the Malaita Eagles Force (MEF).In May 2000, the MEF kidnapped the prime minister and held him for two days at gunpoint, demanding the government do something to resist the Isatabu militia. Since the government had no official military force, very little could be done to intervene in the fight between the Isatabu and the Malaitans.At the height of the fighting, New Zealand and Australia rushed to evacuate their nationals living on the islands. The commonwealth also sent a delegation to try and re-establish peace.A month later, in June, the MEF ousted the Solomon Islands government. Ulufa’alu was forced to resign and an interim government was established, headed by Monassah Sogavare.In October that year a peace accord, entitled the Townsville Peace Agreement, was signed. It called for an end to all the violence, the relinquishing of arms and for new elections to be held in 2001.The People’s Alliance Party (PAP), headed by Allan Kemakeza, won those elections.After a few years of quiet, tensions fled up again at least twice, despite Australian-led regional assistance to the Solomon Islands deployed in 2003 in response to years of ethnic tension.The Islands are now hoping that Tutu will help to bring a lasting solution to their crisis.Sharing the South African storyArchbishop Desmond Tutu was the chairperson of South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which began in 1996 and continued for several years.Perpetrators and victims of apartheid gathered in different parts of the country to testify to the atrocities that took place during the regime.A number of commissioners presided over cases, as the victims recalled their personal experiences and perpetrators admitted to their actions and asked for amnesty from prosecution.The job of the TRC was to investigate violations that took place between 1960 and 1994 and to provide support and reparation to victims and their families. Some of the perpetrators who came forward to testify were given amnesty.The work of the TRC was divided into three main committees. There was the Amnesty Committee, the Reparation and Rehabilitation Committee and the Human Rights Violations Committee.On 21 March 2003 the final TRC report was released and is freely available to the public.For Tutu, the TRC was a vital part of South Africa’s history. Speaking on the topic of forgiveness following his reflections post the TRC, Tutu said, “When I talk of forgiveness I mean the belief that you can come out the other side a better person. A better person than the one being consumed by anger and hatred.”“Remaining in that state [of not forgiving] locks you in a state of victimhood, making you almost dependent on the perpetrator. If you can find it in yourself to forgive then you are no longer chained to the perpetrator. You can move on, and you can even help the perpetrator to become a better person too.”Do you have any comments or queries about this article?

Bing According to Microsoft: Unique Visits Up 8% in June

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… frederic lardinois Tags:#Microsoft#news#NYT#search#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img We already knew that Bing, Microsoft’s new search engine was doing quite well, but today, Microsoft released its own data about the state of the service. Bing launched just a bit more than one month ago, and since then, we have seen reports from numerous third-party web analytics firms that Bing was indeed doing quite well. According to Microsoft’s own data, Bing saw an 8% growth in unique users in June compared to the previous month. The company also noted that the number of users who would be “likely to recommend” Bing to others doubled in June. Shopping and TravelIn addition, Microsoft also announced that Bing Shopping saw a 300% increase in visits and Bing Travel saw its traffic grow by 90% month to month (though Bing Travel’s image is a bit tarnished by a recent controversy about its design). Source: StatCounter Global Stats – Search Engine Market ShareAdvertisersOverall, the numbers Microsoft cites for Bing’s traffic compare well with data we have seen from various web analytics firms, so we have little reason to believe that Microsoft doctored them (though the latest data from Compete is slightly less encouraging for Bing). Microsoft, however, also detailed some data about the results advertisers are seeing on Bing, though we will have to withhold judgment here. It is hard to find hard data about this, and while Microsoft announced that TigerDirect saw its sales and order volume triple, and its conversion rates and average order size “increase significantly,” we just don’t know if this was a special case or something advertisers saw across the board.DevelopersAccording to Microsoft, developers are also taking a liking to the Bing API. The number of registered developers doubled last month, and incoming API requests are up 50% since launch.What’s Next?While Microsoft didn’t specify any exact numbers, the fact that far more users are likely to recommend Bing than they were likely to recommend Live Search must be an encouraging sign for the company. Microsoft didn’t specify any future plans in today’s post, but we know that Microsoft’s biggest challenge is to overcome Google’s momentum and to keep users on its service and from switching back to Google. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more


Google Looks Beyond Review Sites: Now Aggregates Posts from Local Blogs on Place Pages

For businesses, however, this means that they now have to pay more attention to reviews on blogs. For local bloggers, as Blumenthal rightly points out, this means that their reach and influence could increase exponentially once Google includes their blogs on these pages.Should Review Sites be Afraid?When Google launched the sentiment analysis section on Place Pages last year, we wondered if Yelp and other review sites should be afraid of Google. After all, Google’s meta-reviews and scores are more detailed than similar reviews on Yelp and based on a wider variety of sources. It’s worth noting that Yelp doesn’t allow Google to index reviews from its users. For the time being, though, review sites form the backbone of Google’s analysis. Given that it’s a lot easier for most users to post a review on CitySearch than to set up a blog, chances are that hyper-local blogs will become an important part of the review ecosystem on Place Pages but won’t replace CitySearch and UrbanSpoon anytime soon.Just last week, Google launched a small but interesting update to Place Pages in Google Maps that gives local business owners the ability to quickly post updates to their Place Pages. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… When you search for a local business on Google Maps, Google displays general information like address and opening hours about this business. Since December 2009, Google Place Pages also present a sentiment analysis based on comments on sites like CitySearch, Zagat, OpenTable and TripAdvisor. Now, Google has started to display reviews from hyperlocal blogs and news sites as well. As Mike Blumenthal, whose excellent blog focuses on analyzing developments related to Google Maps and local search, points out, it isn’t quite clear how Google defines ‘hyperlocal’ blog and how the company decides which blogs and news sources to include on Place Pages. Blumenthal was able to get confirmation from Google Maps product manager Carter Maslan that this is indeed a new capability of Google Maps.last_img read more


Finding Insulation That’s Safe

December 16, 2019

first_img RELATED ARTICLES On top of all the other problems anyone building a new house is bound to encounter, Carolyn Farrow has a concern that outweighs all others: her daughter’s health.“Our toddler has a lot of chemical sensitivities and respiratory issues and insulation decisions are completely overwhelming me,” she writes in a post at GBA’s Q&A forum. “I can’t find any contractors that I trust.”The allergist and pediatrician treating Farrow’s daughter say she could react to virtually any type of insulation, and they are not comfortable making any specific recommendations.“They both suggested finding an insulation contractor that I trust and is not just trying to sell me what makes him the most money,” Farrow says. “So, that is what I am trying to do. I have researched everything and nothing seems 100% safe. What are we supposed to do? Not insulate our home?“I am not asking an insulation specialist to make medical claims or ensure the safety of materials,” she continues. “But I am looking for an insulation specialist that is informed about their products and makes an effort to choose the safest products possible.” Green Basics: Insulation ChoicesQ&A: Out-Gassing of Bad Stuff from Spray Foam InsulationAll About Indoor Air QualityHelping People With Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Designing a Good Ventilation SystemHRV or ERV?Spray Foam Jobs With Lingering Odor ProblemsSmelly Fiberglass BattsMineral Wood Insulation Isn’t Like Fiberglass Our expert’s opinionHere’s what GBA technical director Peter Yost has to say:It sounds as though Carolyn Farrow has interior building material selections under control in terms of the selection of “healthy” materials. But since Health Product Declarations (HPDs) have not been mentioned, it’s seems important to do so now. HPDs are documents shared by manufacturers to disclose product ingredients and any health hazards associated with them. HPDs are set up to pretty much parallel nutrition labels on food products.Our company, BuildingGreen, has done a lot of work on HPDs; here is a quick guide on how to use HPD labels. Our BuildingGreen-approved building product directory relies heavily on HPDs for many interior components. But to date, few, if any, insulation materials have HPD labels.For cavity insulation, you have two primary choices in materials: blown or batt insulation. There are quite a few BuildingGreen-approved insulation materials, but I would call out the following because they do not have potentially-problematic blowing agents or flame retardants: Johns Manville Spider system. This is a formaldehyde-free blown insulation which I have used on projects with owners concerned about their children’s health, to good effect. The binder is polyester-based; check in with your allergist on this constituent of the insulation. CertainTeed Optima. This is another formaldehyde-free fiberglass insulation but it is dry-blown with no binder; it is kept in place by a non-woven fabric facing. Optima is Greenguard Gold certified. Roxul Comfortbatt, an inert, stone-based fiber with cured urea extended phenolic formaldehyde binder. Check with your allergist on this binder. Comfortbatt is Schools and Children-Greenguard certified. Owens Corning EcoTouch batts. This insulation has a formaldehyde-free bio-based binder carrying the Greenguard Gold certification. There certainly are other brands of formaldehyde-free fiberglass batt insulation, but I am calling out this one because the manufacturer also has an air-sealing system, EnergyComplete, which uses a two-part latex system. Check with your allergist about latex-based products.Knauf EcoBatt insulation. This is another formaldehyde-free batt insulation certified as Greenguard Gold that can be coupled with the Knauf air-sealing system, EcoSeal, an acrylic-based sealant. Check with your allergist about acrylic-based products.BuildingGreen is a big fan of cellulose insulation but I am not including it because of concerns that some chemically sensitive people have expressed over borates, which are used as a flame retardant, and with newsprint ink. I also did not include a host of products that may work well, but are much less widely available than the above.And maybe these go without saying, but let me add:Any insulation is only as good as the quality of its installation and some of these products — particularly the batts — are notoriously difficult to install at top-performance level.As others have noted, insulation may be the least of your worries, particularly if you employ a continuous interior air barrier system.Along with interior material selections, furnishings — window treatments, rugs, stuffed couches, mattresses, bed linens — can have a big impact on indoor air quality.The mechanical ventilation and filtration systems also play a big role in maintaining indoor air quality. Consider hiring an energy consultantSteve Knapp writes to say one of his goals in building a new house was the best possible indoor air quality, and after struggling with the choice of insulation he chose foam. If he were to do it all over again, he’d be looking at either cellulose or exterior insulation.From what Farrow has said, it sounds as if it might be too late to consider exterior insulation, so sealing the insulation behind the drywall, as others have suggested, now looks like the best course. That, plus an effective ventilation system will help.“One last suggestion,” Knapp says. “Consider hiring an experienced energy consultant to review the work being done on your home and advise you on strategies for achieving your healthy house goals.”On her own, Farrow will never be able to do the research guaranteeing a healthy house, Knapp says, and even then it might not be enough to prevent the serious health issues Farrow has described in her daughter.He adds: “Also be aware that doing all the ‘right things’ to construct a healthy house may not solve your daughter’s health issues. When my house was nearly completed, I finally received an accurate diagnose to a lifetime’s worth of health problems. With that knowledge, I learned that building a healthy house was not going to affect my condition in any significant way.“Getting healthier was going to require a completely different strategy,” Knapp adds. “At the same time, I still thought it made more sense to live in a healthy house than one filled with a toxic stew of man-made chemicals. Most people spend 80 percent of their lives in buildings. Why inhabit ones that are going to damage your health in avoidable ways?”center_img Some types of insulation are inherently saferIt’s Farrow, not the insulation contractor, who will have to make the call, says Dana Dorsett, and with that in mind, there are certain types of insulation that come with fewer health concerns.Damp-spray cellulose, for example, is made of ground-up newspapers and borate fire retardants that have very low toxicity. Other than what might be in the residual inks, there’s not much there to hurt Farrow’s daughter, and if she can tolerate fresh newsprint, this might be a good option.Rock wool batts, Dorsett continues, have small amounts of binders, most of which are cooked out of the insulation as it’s processed, with very little off-gassing when the insulation is finished. Most fiberglass and spray foam products, on the other hands, will produce some off-gassing. Rigid foam insulation contains fire retardants that might be a concern, but foil-faced versions are gas-tight and will off-gas only at panel edges.“The insulation is all on the other side of what should be an air barrier which limits the amount of potentially harmful materials getting into the house,” Dorsett says. “But making that perfect air barrier on the interior isn’t usually the insulation contractors’ job. You could make it part of their job if you insisted on a 2-mil nylon air-barrier and vapor retarder (Certainteed MemBrain), detailed for airtightness prior to hanging the wallboard. That job could be performed either by the insulation contractor, or some other subcontractor, but it needs to be inspected carefully for leaks before installing the wallboard.”But, like Nate G, Dorsett also believes it is the materials inside the living space that should be of the greatest concern, not the insulation itself.Aaron Gatzke, however, isn’t so sure. He writes that his wife developed “multiple sensitivities” after CertainTeed fiberglass insulation was installed in their house. “She was exposed to the insulation dust one day while sitting outside,” he says, “but we also noticed that the insulation itself had an extremely strong odor from the new organic binder they used to replace formaldehyde.”Problems cropped up even after the insulation was sealed behind 6-mil polyethylene, tape, and acoustic sealant.“You should also prepare for a long period of off-gassing,” Gatzke writes. Concerns are misplacedGiven that no one seems to know exactly what will cause a negative reaction, Nate G replies, there’s no real way to avoid potential risk. Even so, as long as the insulation is installed correctly and contained in the walls of the house, there’s probably not a lot to worry about. Farrow is, he continues, probably “barking up the wrong tree” by focusing her concerns on insulation. A greater threat are the other building materials and furnishings that affect air quality.“The products that would be the ones to worry about are the wall paints, flooring, furniture, and HVAC system,” Nate adds. “Choose materials that are more inert and preferably made from rocks and dirt. That means tile, stone, and plaster, things like that.”He suggests avoiding Chinese-made furniture that could be loaded with formaldehyde, and choosing solid-wood furniture instead, especially if it’s old. Older objects have had more time to off-gas potential contaminants, and building the house out of masonry covered inside with plaster might help. Among other suggestions: a robust heat-recovery ventilator with a high-efficiency filter, an electric range, no wood-burning appliances, and no carpeting.“But honestly, the best thing in your situation might be to find a good old house. Old houses were made with durable materials that have long-since off-gassed everything nasty,” Nate says. “There’s no worry about construction dust or any of the other problems caused by construction. New construction — even with mostly inert materials — is going to create more health hazards than an already-existing older house might…“The deeper problem is that you are fixating on something that, in the scheme of things, is relatively unimportant. Your daughter’s health is going to be far more seriously impacted by the quality of the air and finish materials inside the house you are building than by the material of the insulation inside the walls,” Nate continues. “That’s why I’ve recommended that you spec an air-filtering HRV, a heating system that doesn’t blow air, inert finish materials that don’t off-gas anything, and to avoid combustion appliances, in particular avoiding a gas range.” Farrow’s quest is the subject of this Q&A Spotlight.last_img read more
