first_imgDear Editor,Amidst the multitude of negatives attributed to this People’s National Congress-led coalition, one glaring and most disturbing fact is its penchant for loud, lewd and degrading parties. I am talking about an identifiable mark of this party, especially when they have nothing tangible to offer the people, so bamboozle them by offering a sideshow to dance away their troubles, wine away your fears.This is the naked truth about this party in Government that is, creating distractions for a population that is wallowing in deep poverty. But lest I digress, I shall proceed with the discussion at hand.I draw your attention to the latest debacle of the noise nuisance and the wild and licentious orgies right next to a five-star hotel the Marriott.The licentious behaviour is not so much a degrading factor as it is not done on the hotel’s immediate property, however, the non-stop deafening music is, something that goes on and on until the wee hours of the morning, this is need of urgent concern.The Marriott is an international hotel; one that is usually patronised by persons of decent, high moral calibre, and to subject them to such lawlessness is appalling to say the least. When these persons return to their homeland, I shudder to think of the stories they would relate to their friends and love ones.They would tell of the relentless assault that was forced upon their ears at the hands of some urban hooligans right below their hotel window, treatment that went way below civilised standards. Our country would have chalked up another rave review in backwardness.Now, this noise nuisance would not have seen any curtailment far less a ban by the authorities, save for the fact that the management of the facility issued a lawsuit against the Government. That was the final straw that prompted immediate action from Government. It has nothing to do with the Government showing care and concern for its citizens or any such thing, it is a lawsuit and only that caused them to sober up to the fact that persons are entitled to peace and quiet and restful sleep at nights.One can recall that a similar threat was made by private citizens on the East Coast where this uncultured lawlessness began.On that occasion the illiteracy was removed to the portion of the seawall between Camp Road and the roundabout. As this crazy street party gained popularity, it finally found a resting place in civilised space, the Marriott beachfront.The point I am making is if this bacchanal Government wants the lawlessness to continue then have them go into the National Park which is designed for such foolishness but not areas in and around decency and proper morals.Respectfully,Neil Adamslast_img read more

Murray stuck his penalty down the middle LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS silverware possible standings Chris Hughton’s Seagulls began the second half with increased purpose and, after Davy Propper headed wide, Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy showed the skills which led to recent England recognition by palming away Knockaert’s fierce drive.Saints were struggling to reassert their authority but they doubled their advantage in the 65th minute when Ings coolly converted from the spot after he had tricked his way into the box and enticed a foul from Gaetan Bong.Any hope manager Mark Hughes may have had of comfortably seeing the game out was dashed just two minutes later though. Both meetings between the sides last season ended in 1-1 draws and it made for a cautious opening period of limited chances.Southampton gradually took control and almost edged ahead in the 21st minute when Ings’ effort was scrambled off the line by Anthony Knockaert following Mohamed Elyounoussi’s corner, before Wesley Hoedt wastefully fired over with a follow-up attempt.Norway winger Elyounoussi should then have done better with a free header which was directed narrowly wide following a Nathan Redmond cross. smart causal French winger Knockaert delivered an enticing inswinging free-kick from wide on the right and Republic of Ireland defender Duffy rose to steer his second goal of the season into the bottom right corner.Brighton continued to push and Jurgen Locadia forced a fine save out of McCarthy with a close-range header.The hosts looked to have done enough to hang on for the three points but, after a left wing corner, Taylor pointed to the spot and Murray kept his composure to roll the ball down the middle in front of the travelling fans.

Glenn Murray scored a stoppage-time penalty as Brighton recovered from two goals down to draw 2-2 at south coast rivals Southampton.The veteran striker converted his fourth goal of the season from the spot after Saints substitute James Ward-Prowse was adjudged to have fouled Shane Duffy by referee Anthony Taylor. 5 Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack 5 RANKED 5 5 MONEY The pressure began to build and it paid off with 35 minutes played as Hojbjerg continued his eventful start to the season.The former Bayern Munich man, who was sent off against Leicester before scoring in the win at Palace, smashed a thunderous strike into the bottom left corner from distance after Elyounoussi’s cross was only partially cleared by Seagulls captain Lewis Dunk.Brighton had never won a Premier League game after falling behind, with this their 43rd fixture since coming up from the Championship.

first_imgLIFFORD Hospital’s closure may be officially announced today, sources told donegaldaily.com.It’s understood management and the HSE have held talks over the hospital’s future with closure being the preferred option of the HSE and management told an officially closure announcement will be made ‘in the next 24 hours’.It comes just a few days after Donegal Senator Brian O’Domhnaill brought up the issue in the Seanad. Senator O’Domhnaill said: “I questioned Junior Health Minister Kathleen Lynch about the increasing concern about her Government’s agenda in shutting down community hospitals and closing nursing home units in smaller communities. This poses a further threat to the future of Lifford Hospital.“The Minister’s response was extremely disappointing. She admitted that her Government plans to shut down community hospitals and nursing homes, citing the need to achieve “efficiencies”. She refused to give any commitment to Lifford Hospital or any other facilities under threat of closure,” he revealed.The hospital has 20 beds; hundreds of people have attended meetings to oppose its closure.  LIFFORD HOSPITAL ‘EARMARKED FOR CLOSURE’ was last modified: February 17th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img10 July 2006Public-private partnerships are playing a major role in turning South Africa’s crime situation around, according to a special survey of the country in the 8 April 2006 issue of The Economist.Singled out for special mention by The Economist is Business Against Crime South Africa, the organisation that pioneered a successful model, combining private sector know-how with a mixture of private and public money, of combating crime in the country. Formed in 1996 at the behest of former president Nelson Mandela, Business Against Crime (BAC) supports the government’s crime-fighting initiatives by harnessing the skills and resources of the country’s business community.The organisation, a not-for-profit body funded primarily by the business sector, is still best known for its role in dramatically cutting street crime in Johannesburg’s central business district – by setting up closed-circuit TV surveillance cameras following the success of a similar scheme in Cape Town.Oiling the wheels of justiceMission accomplished, Business Against Crime left others to run this project, and applied its model to other parts of South Africa’s criminal justice system, such as the slow processing of criminal cases.According to The Economist, the BAC “spent R31-million over several years on getting outside experts to analyse the flow of cases, from the initial reporting of an incident in a police station to the arrival (or not) of the case in court.“On the basis of this research, the government spent about R2-billion on reforming the whole system. Perhaps partly as a result, conviction rates – a dismal 8% in 2000 – are beginning to creep up.”Management training for policeAnother major BAC project involves management training in South Africa’s police stations. In pilot projects in the provinces of Mpumalanga and Gauteng, over 200 policemen and women from 28 police stations received training in 2005.And according to the BAC, the country’s business sector has donated an effective R88-million for developing a leadership development programme for senior station managers and implementing the programme between 2006 and 2008.Commercial courtsBusiness Against Crime, together with the South African Banks Risk Information Centre, has also tackled commercial crime, establishing four specialised commercial courts in Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria – with two more to come, in Bloemfontein and Cape Town, in 2006.Staffed by specialists to convict the guilty quickly and efficiently and secure appropriate sentences, the commercial courts boast an average 97% to 98% conviction rate, and have cut the case processing time for commercial crimes in the country by half, from 30 months in 1999 to 14 months in 2005.Tackling trade in stolen goodsWhen it came to tackling organised crime involving large syndicates, the BAC shifted its approach, taking steps to help remove the commercial benefit in the trade of stolen goods – in the first place, vehicles, cellphones and copper cable.Improved business processes within the government’s vehicle management system have helped to root out fraud and corruption and, according to the BAC, contributed to a 30% reduction in hijackings in Gauteng province in 2005/06.Business Against Crime is also helping to facilitate:the introduction of improved vehicle identity measures such as microdotting;a better co-ordinated approach to “chop shop” disruption operations, supported by new legislation in the form of the Second-Hand Goods Act; andgreater control over the movement of “vehicles in transit” to help curb the illegal registration of second-hand vehicles locally.In February 2006, SA’s Retail Motor Industry Organisation became the 14th business organistion to join the Industry Alignment Forum, a body set up by the BAC to co-ordinate business efforts to combat crime.In April 2005, Business Against Crime also brokered a cellphone blacklisting agreement between the police and the country’s three cellular operators – Cell C, MTN and Vodacom.According to the BAC, the reporting of stolen, lost and damaged cellphones “increased by approximately 500% during the first 10 months of 2005, compared to the same period in both 2003 and 2004.”Reaching out to schoolsBusiness Against Crime has also reached out to South Africa’s schools, with a special programme that teaches positive morality and non-violent methods of conflict resolution.The Tiisa Thuto project was run in 121 schools in Gauteng province in 2004/05, reaching over 1.2-million scholars, teachers and parents, and is now being rolled out in the Eastern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga and Western Cape provinces.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

first_imgMandalay Homes, based in Arizona, recently introduced the iON Series, a set of smart energy features that includes an extremely tight, well-insulated building shell, high-efficiency heating and cooling system, and on-site solar with battery storage. “In the past, we have guaranteed four things in our energy-efficiency package,” says Geoff Ferrell, Mandalay’s chief technology officer. “Our homes achieve a Home Energy (HERS) Index of 50 or less along with three third-party certifications: Indoor Air Quality Plus, Energy Star and Zero Energy Ready Home. With the iON Series we have increased our commitment to clean energy and improved value to the customers.” Starting with a foundation of its low HERS rating and its three third-party certifications, the iON Series integrates optimized energy collection, storage, and management to build zero energy homes in a way that supports grid integrity.RELATED ARTICLESAn Introduction to the Duck CurveEvery New Home Should be Zero-Energy ReadyBuilding a Low-Cost Zero-Energy HomeWhat’s Driving the Cost of Residential Solar-Plus-Storage?A Production Home Builder Aims for Net Zero The ‘duck curve’ is a threat to net-metering Arizona’s utilities and homeowners have invested heavily in grid-connected solar resources — enough to create an imbalance between electricity demand and supply. This so-called “duck curve” results because daily peak demand occurs in the late afternoon and evening when most people return home and crank up the air-conditioners. However, peak energy production from solar electric panels occurs closer to midday. Until recently, the electric grid has been unable to store the excess electricity from renewable sources for when it’s needed most. This imbalance has been used by some grid operators to threaten the future of grid-tied, net-metered, zero energy homes. Some utilities may attempt to solve the duck curve challenge by creating rate structures and interconnection requirements that make net metering disadvantageous to zero energy home owners. Several obvious solutions to the duck curve fall to grid operators themselves, including developing battery storage, pumped hydro, microgrids, time-of-use rates and demand management. While some of these solutions will take time and money to implement, time-of-use rates and demand management are low-cost and easy-to-implement strategies which require builder participation. An elegant solution Mandalay Homes and Arizona Public Service (APS) have partnered to address this issue at the neighborhood level. Every Mandalay home in their three newest communities will include the all-electric iON Series features: a HERS Index of around 30 which includes the addition of a six-panel (2 kW) solar array, and a 10 kWh Sonnen Eco 10 energy storage system. Beyond just a battery, the Sonnen system can be programmed for a number of intelligent energy management functions, including grid integration in a way that helps eliminate the duck curve. APS has introduced an innovative time-of-use and demand management strategy and works with Mandalay Homes to implement it. As part of their Mandalay home purchase contract, buyers agree to an APS rate program that charges them only 4.75 cents per kWh for all their purchased electricity during off-peak times, a much lower rate than the national average of about 12 cents per kWh. The catch is that customers may not use grid electricity during the peak hours of 3 to 8 p.m. This is where the Sonnen battery system comes in. It stores enough electricity to keep everything running — all the space heating, cooling, water heating, lights, and appliances — during these hours when the home is not drawing power from the grid. Solar energy from the 2-kW array is used primarily to charge the batteries. The Sonnen system also locks out grid power from 3 to 8 pm. Because the home’s high-performance envelope and high-efficiency equipment keeps energy use so low, energy stored in the relatively small on-site battery is sufficient for this period. Ferrell projects that homeowners in these communities will spend as little as $12 per month for energy, plus about $18 per month for the standard APS service charge and taxes. While some observers may not see these as true zero energy homes, the electricity supplied via the APS grid is clean and renewable. This hybrid approach offers an extremely cost-effective path that is beneficial for the electric utility, affordable for homebuyers, and profitable for the builder. This type of partnership between Mandalay and APS based on APS’s new electricity rate schedule is available to others in APS territory. It would be great to see other developers and builders follow Mandalay’s example to benefit both utilities and consumers. The Mandalay APS approach may well become a model for use in other utility service areas where there is high solar production and the duck curve is becoming a threat to the expansion of net-metered, grid-tied, solar-powered homes. Performance optimized buildings are the starting point “Before we can go with solar and batteries, we need to optimize the home,” says Ferrell. Mandalay’s standard approach is based on climate-appropriate building science. Over the course of several years, Mandalay has evolved a long list of high-performance energy features culminating in the new iON Series with a HERS Index of 50 or less before the application of solar. This level of performance puts the home firmly in the zero energy ready category where affordable renewable energy can be added to supply all the energy needed by the home. To achieve this rating, Mandalay uses a set of proven energy-efficiency features: Spray foam insulation: Walls cavities are filled with open-cell spray foam. While the insulating value is about the same as fiberglass batt insulation, foam does a far better job of filling all the nooks and crannies that batt insulation can leave open. Conditioned attic: Open-cell spray foam is also applied to the underside of the roof sheathing. This brings the entire attic into the building’s conditioned envelope. Ducts inside: The entire heating and cooling system is inside the conditioned envelope. In single-story plans, the furnace and ducts run through the conditioned attic space created by insulating the roof sheathing with spray foam. In two-story plans, additional ductwork for the first level runs through the intermediate floor that is framed with open web floor trusses. Slab-edge insulation: High-density (3.0 lbs/cu. ft.), closed-cell spray foam insulation covers the edge of the slab-on-grade foundation both above and below grade. Because the 3-pound foam is so strong and durable, the portion exposed above grade can simply be painted, with no need for additional protection from sunlight or physical damage. Aerobarrier: The newest addition to Mandalay’s energy suite is a new air sealing system that is relatively inexpensive, highly effective, and consistent. Aerobarrier injects an airborne aerosol mist into the building as it is being pressurized with a blower door. The mist-laden air pushes out of the building through cracks and openings. The aerosol sealant accumulates and eventually fills the openings. The process takes about four hours per house. Installers monitor progress and stop when the home reaches the desired level of airtightness. Mandalay homes now average 0.7 air changes per hour (ACH50). Ventilation: Highly consistent airtightness allows mechanical equipment to be sized properly. Energy-recovery ventilators are selected to deliver the appropriate amount of whole-house ventilation, while quiet bath fans and range hoods provide spot ventilation. Equipment sizing: Heat pump capacity is reduced with confidence that occupant comfort will not suffer on extreme days. Mandalay saves roughly $800 per home through optimization and a heat pump that is ½ ton smaller. Consistency in the construction process Production builders strive for consistency and save money by shaving expenses wherever possible. To this end, Mandalay created an in-house Performance Team. These two employees have three jobs: installing the high-density spray foam slab-edge insulation, implementing the Aerobarrier sealing equipment, and mounting solar panels on the roof. Mandalay saves money by bringing these specialized tasks in-house rather than hiring outside contractors.   This post originally appeared at the Zero Energy Project and is republished here with permission.last_img read more

first_imgLearn how to protect your video production gear and safeguard your set with this video tutorial.Professional audio and video technicians have been using this tried-and-true coiling method for years. When you have to move fast, a tangled cable can be costly, embarrassing, and (frankly) inexcusable. This video cites two true stories that relate directly to tangled cable and rope. Spend a little time perfecting the “Over and Under” method, and you can respond to any urgent cable request with confidence!Have a tangled mess of cords, cables, and rope? Avoid potentially dangerous situations by properly wrapping your cables.If you need to retrain your cables to properly wrap them, try setting them out in the sun for a few hours. You can also soak rope then lay it in the sun. Now your cables and rope are ready to coil.Wrapping Cables (XLR, BNC, etc) and Extension CordsThis technique works both clockwise and counterclockwise — perfect for both right-handed or left-handed crew members.Step 1: Grab your cable and start with an overhand loop.Step 2: Flip the cable, and roll it underhand to create the second loop.Step 3: Repeat overhand and underhand until the cable coils entirely in a circle.Step 4: Use a velcro tie or string to tie the cable in place. It’s best to keep the tie attached to the male end of the cable so it doesn’t interfere with any microphones or equipment you may plug into.Do not wrap the cable around itself and connect the ends. That is an improper technique that can shorten the lifespan of you audio and video cables.Have tips for protecting your video gear? Let us know in the comments.last_img read more
