Heating help

first_imgBy Stephanie SchupskaUniversity of GeorgiaWhether it’s finding help to pay the bills or winterizing a drafty house, Pamela Turner has tips on staying toasty when the weather turns cooler.Turner, a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension housing specialist, says there are better ways than relying on stoves, portable heaters or even charcoal grills to keep a home warm.Methods that seem less expensive, such as warming a house using the oven or lighting a portable gas heater, aren’t necessarily going to save money. They may be neither the safest nor the most efficient way to heat your home.“When you use a kerosene or gas heater, you’re introducing particulate matter into your home and running the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning,” Turner said of unvented portable heaters.“The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has never said, ‘Don’t ever use these heaters.’ But consumers are advised to leave a window open for ventilation when using an unvented heater,” she said. “You can use an electric heater, which is a safe but expensive source of heat.”In some cases, “people bring grills inside and burn charcoal briquettes for heat,” she said. Burning charcoal in your home is never a good idea. It’s dangerous.Instead of just focusing on added heat sources, consider ways to keep the cold air from coming inside. “See what you can do to reduce heat losses,” Turner said.She offers some tips:1. Winterize your home. “If you can see light around your window, you’re losing a lot of heat,” she said. “Caulking around windows and adding weather stripping to doors will help reduce heat losses. There are organizations in the community that can help homeowners and renters winterize their homes.”2. Turn down your thermostat.3. Invest in a window insulation kit. It helps reduce heat loss by a plastic storm window that’s installed over existing windows.Sometimes improvements aren’t possible, or they aren’t enough. When the weather turns frightful, help is available.“Heating costs should be lower this year,” Turner said, “However, for people living on a fixed income, many will have to make a choice between paying for medication and keeping the house warm.”Several local and federal programs are specifically designed to help people with very low incomes pay their energy bills.“Most of these programs begin providing assistance around the first of December,” Turner said. “Also, utility companies usually have energy assistance programs for people over 65.”The federal Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program helps those who have a household income of less than or equal to 150 percent of federal poverty guidelines.This means if you live alone, you can qualify if you make under $14,700 a year, Turner said. A couple or a single parent with a child can make up to $19,800 and qualify. For a household with four people, the maximum is $30,000.For 2006, LIHEAP estimates it helped 180,000 households with heating and cooling in Georgia. Benefits ranged from $174 to $200 and averaged $197.“To learn if you qualify for energy assistance, contact your local Salvation Army or Community Action Agency,” Turner said.Applicants to these programs generally must provide a copy of their most recent utility bill, a payroll stub or other proof of household income and valid Social Security numbers for everyone living in their home.For more information on energy assistance programs in Georgia, visit LIHEAP online at www.liheap.ncat.org/profiles/Georgia.htm. Or call them at 1-800-869-1150.(Stephanie Schupska is a news editor with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

first_imgThe 1.6 meter vessel will be equipped with 40Ah of Lithium Polymer batteries for up to 10 hour endurance at survey speeds, with waterjet propulsion, data and control telemetry, a video monitoring system, collision avoidance sensors, and USV mission planning software. The SL40 USV complements THURN’s airborne rotocopter drones, which can carry small sonar and other sensors on short autonomous missions to inaccessible and denied areas. Tom Hiller, general manager at THURN, said: “We have been working with OceanAlpha on system integrations for a while now, and I’m looking forward to getting one of their mid-range vessels at the Acle base so we can look at new ways to provide our customers with better survey capabilities in inland waters. Already we see synergies between swath surveys using the SL40 while a rotocopter drone from THURN does the SV dips. We are now reaching out to sonar manufacturers: if you have a solution that addresses a nearshore, river or lake challenge, and are interested in your sensors being part of an airborne or surface autonomous system, then please get in touch with the team at Acle.” THURN’s Marine Robotics and Autonomy Product Development group at Acle, in UK, has purchased the SL40 for integration with a range of sonar systems. center_img THURN Group has acquired a new SL40 autonomous survey vessel from OceanAlpha. Sam Li, sales manager at OceanAlpha, said: “We are excited to work with THURN. Our autonomous systems provide excellent value to our customers, especially when combined with THURN’s rich experience in system integration, product development and sales and service. Through this partnership with THURN we are expanding the global autonomous system markets and applications, improving safety, efficiency and accuracy.”last_img read more


Koeman targeting double swoop

first_img While the Saints’ outgoing players have dominated the headlines this summer, Koeman has already added seven new faces including Fraser Forster, Shane Long, Graziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic. The Dutchman has been linked with a move for Atletico Madrid’s Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld but refused to confirm his interest in the 25-year-old. However, Koeman is confident of landing two targets ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline. “I don’t talk about names of players,” he said. “In two positions we are trying to bring in new players and we hope to bring (them) in this week. “The club is doing everything for that and I hope we will finish with that this week.” Saints may have lost the likes of Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Luke Shaw and Calum Chambers but Koeman hopes Jack Cork will not join the exodus. Midfielder Cork, who has only a year left on his current contract, has been linked with moves to Crystal Palace and Swansea. The 25-year-old scored his first Saints goal on his 114th appearance in Tuesday night’s 2-0 Capital One Cup win at Millwall. And Koeman insists he wants to keep the former Chelsea youngster at St Mary’s, although there are no plans to open talks over a new deal yet. “He’s a Southampton player,” said Koeman. “There were a lot of rumours but Jack is doing very good and has ambition to stay with Southampton. “If there is any possibility for him and when he is not happy he knows my office door is open and we can see what is best for everyone in this situation.” But when asked if there were any plans to discuss a new contract for Cork, Koeman added: “Not at this moment.” Cork grabbed the opener with a header after 53 minutes and on a night of firsts, Italian striker Pelle opened his account in stoppage time to give Koeman his first win as Saints boss. “I was really happy, you know how important it is for strikers to score and it doesn’t matter which game it is,” Pelle told the club’s official website. “I tell myself if I don’t score for two matches in the third I have to. And especially as we didn’t win our first two games. Winning is more important than scoring to me.” Southampton boss Ronald Koeman hopes to bring in two new players this week.

first_imgMake yourselves at home, Trojans.The No. 12 USC men’s golf team will tee off today on its first of two tournaments in the span of four weeks at Arizona State’s same Karsten Golf Course.Solid · Freshman Martin Trainer was 3-1 in match play last week. – Courtesy of USC Sports Information This weekend’s tournament, the 38th annual Thunderbird Invitational, will feature all of the   Pac-10 teams, as well as five squads from other conferences, including  No. 9 UNLV.The Trojans will return to the desert April 26 for the Pac-10 championships.“It’s an opportunity to play competitive golf on a course we have a real important championship on within one month,” USC coach Chris Zambri said. “We’re killing two birds with one stone here.”USC will also get an opportunity to see where it stacks up against other top Pac-10 teams. No. 2 Stanford, No. 6 Washington, No. 7 UCLA, No. 11 Arizona State and No. 15 Oregon are all threats to win the conference title.The Trojans come into the Thunderbird Invitational on the heels of their best tournament finish of the season. USC placed second in the      16-team field at the Callaway Match Play Championship, losing to New Mexico in the title match.“We’re confident with the way we’ve been playing in the last few tournaments,” junior Matt Giles said. “Hopefully, we can continue to build on that.”USC will send out the same five-man lineup for the third consecutive tournament, a sign that Zambri has found the right combination.“Right now our team looks pretty solid,” Zambri said. “But there’s still time for some guys to get in to the top five that aren’t in there now.”The Trojans will be led by freshman T.J. Vogel, who was red hot during March. Vogel finished in second place at the USC Collegiate Invitational and the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters before going 3-1 at the match play event.Sophomore Steve Lim also went 3-1 in match play and has posted three top-15 finishes on the season.“I’m feeling confident about my game,” Lim said. “The course this week is not that long so there are a lot of opportunities.”Giles, a two-time All-American, is still searching for the stroke that had him ranked as the No. 1 player in college golf for a long stretch last spring. Giles won two of his matches last week, however, and is feeling better about his play.“I’m feeling good. Everything is starting to come together nicely,” Giles said.Freshmen Martin Trainer, who went 3-1 in match play, and Stewart Hagestad, 1-3, round out the starters for USC. Redshirt junior Bo DeHuff will play as an individual.“The freshmen are learning. They’re stepping up, and we’re ready to win this week,” Lim said.The tournament begins today with 36 holes of play. The final round is scheduled for Saturday.last_img read more

first_imgJoseph Winston Jones of Lot 39 Norton Street, Lodge, Georgetown, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer to a possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking charge.It was alleged that the 27-year-old man was found with 32 grams of cannabis in his possession. Jones pled not guilty to the charge. His lawyer, Paul Fung-a Fat, in a bail application told the court that at least 10 other persons were found in the area with his client, arguing that the cannabis could have belonged to anyone of the boys who ran away when the Police arrived.The prosecution’s case contended that Police ranks acting on information, approached Jones but upon seeing them, he dumped a black bag.Police ranks then picked up the bag and found multiple sealed Ziploc bags with a quantity of seeds, leaves and stems.The prosecution further added that Jones took ownership of the cannabis and requested the ranks to grant him leniency since it was only a “hustle” he was doing. Bail was objected to and the defendant was remanded to prison until July 12.Meanwhile, in a separate matter, a mason was remanded to prison after he pleaded not guilty to a trafficking in narcotics charge.Franklyn Kowlessar, 36, Lot 3 Mandela Avenue, Georgetown, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer to the charge of being in possession of 34.5 grams of cannabis.According to the prosecution’s case, Kowlessar threw a black bag on the neighbour’s roof when he saw the Police approaching him. The bag was recovered and several small Ziplocs bags with the illicit substance were recovered.Attorney Paul Fung-A Fat told the court that his client has no knowledge of the cannabis and in fact, it was found two lots away from where the accused resides. Kowlessar was remanded to prison. The case will continue on July 14.last_img read more
