first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC): West Indies Women came from behind to stun Pakistan Women in a nerve-jangling super over and make a clean sweep of their three-match Twenty20 International series here yesterday. Bundled out for a paltry 88 off 19.5 overs, West Indies Women capitalised on a rain break which saw Pakistan Women’s target adjusted to 78 off 17 overs and hit back to restrict the visitors to 77 for seven at the National Stadium to leave scores tied. In the all-important super over, seamer Deandra Dottin snatched two wickets as Pakistan Women scraped together just three runs and West Indies Women survived the loss of Dottin off the first ball to reach their target off the last ball of the over when Kyshona Knight struck a boundary. Sent in, West Indies Women were 63 for four in the 14th over, but lost their last six wickets for 25 runs to be dismissed under 100. Opener Kycia Knight held the innings together with a fine knock of 49 off 48 balls with three fours before she was sixth out with the score on 76 in the 17th over. She was the only player to reach double figures as captain Sana Mir ripped through the innings with her off-spin to claim four for 14, while left-arm spinner Anam Amin supported with two for 10. In reply, Pakistan Women were held up by rain after they had reached seven for one in the fourth over. With an adjusted target on resumption, Pakistan lost Nain Abidi (3) and Ayesha Zafar (5) cheaply to slide to 18 for three in the sixth over as West Indies Women took control. However, Bismah Maroof top-scored with 30 off 37 deliveries and captain Sana Mir supported with 22 from 24 balls in a 39-run fourth wicket stand to bring their side back into the contest. Bismah was bowled by off-spinner Anisa Mohammed in the 14th but Nidar Dar scored a precious 11 off 12 balls in a 19-run, fifth wicket partnership with Mir that left Pakistan Women with eight runs to get off the last over. In a dramatic final over, Mir scrambled a single off the first ball of the over from Dottin and Dar slammed a boundary off the second to put their side on the brink of victory with just three runs required from four balls. But Dottin showed her character, keeping Dar scoreless of the next delivery before having her caught and bowled off the fourth. Sana Mir was run out off the fifth delivery and Sania Khan followed, also via the run out route, off the final ball of the over, as West Indies Women tied the game.

first_imgMinister McHugh joins Minister Creed during his visit to Donegal for the official opening of the newly redeveloped United Fish Industries Processing Plant Killybegs. Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed TD today launched two new major marine projects in Killybegs, Co. Donegal. The first of these was the redevelopment of the United Fish Industries (UFI) fishmeal plant which has just been completed at a cost of €30million.The second was the new Killybegs Small Craft Harbour built at a cost of €2.9million. Fine Gael Minister of State Joe McHugh TD; “I am delighted to welcome Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed TD to Donegal this afternoon, where he has just officially opened the newly redeveloped United Fish Industries Processing Plant in Killybegs.”“This huge financial investment shows a great confidence in our fishing sector, and this will be a massive boost to Killybegs, and indeed Donegal.”Minster Creed speaking at the launch, “This new harbour, fully funded by the State, is a first class facility capable of accommodating 63 boats ranging up to 15 metres in length with one berth capable of accommodating larger vessels in excess of 20 metres long. This is great development for Killybegs Harbour and will complement the existing world class facilities in place for our large fishing vessels.”Minister Joe McHugh added; “I have also arranged for several agricultural groups to meet with Minister Creed and myself while he is in Killybegs today to discuss a wide range of topics affecting our Donegal farmers at present. These include the recent affects on lands by the adverse weather conditions, changes to GLAS payments for the Hill and Commonage farmers, as well as some issues and implications around farm payments for part-time farmers among other issues and concerns.” Minister Creed’s visit follows his announcement last Friday that payments worth over €140M under 2016 Areas of Natural Constraints Scheme have started issuing to farmers. The farming payment of €11,716,998.47 was approved to 5176 farmers in Donegal, the third highest allocation in Ireland.“I welcome the opportunity to discuss these various issues with Minister Creed that are of concern to Donegal’s farmers and I very much look forward to meeting with these local community groups and organisations in an effort to assist them with their concerns.”€30 million UFI fishmeal plant in Killybegs officially opened today was last modified: September 26th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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) Tags:donegalFishingjoe mc hughKillybegsunited fish industries processing plantlast_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Signs on Copper Hill at Benz and Buckhorn Lane will prevent drivers from turning right onto those two streets from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Signs on Bouquet will restrict left turns onto Benz and onto Sue Drive from 7 to 9 a.m. on weekdays. Drivers often fail to stop at the stop signs that stand on nearly every Benz corner between Bouquet and Copper Hill. “The intention is to reduce daily trips on Benz to 2,000 trips a day,” said Andrew Yi, the city’s traffic engineer. “If Step 1 does not work we will go into Step 2, which will only allow right turns out from Benz to Copper Hill and from Buckhorn onto Copper Hill.” Nonresidential Haskell Canyon Road and David Way are seen as preferred alternatives for commuters. An earlier suggestion for redirecting traffic inside the neighborhood that was touted by Councilman Frank Ferry would have restricted turns from Cross Creek Drive onto Benz, instead of at Buckhorn. It was favored by many of the 39 residents of a newer tract just off Copper Hill, located in Los Angeles County jurisdiction. SANTA CLARITA – A group of determined residents who for years urged city officials to divert cut-through traffic from their once-quiet street may soon benefit from signs barring turns four hours a day on weekdays. On Tuesday, the Santa Clarita City Council approved placing signs on two thoroughfares that bookend Benz Road to prevent thousands of cars a day from using it as a rush-hour shortcut. “I’m obviously elated they agreed emphatically because they had witnessed the gross violations of the speed laws and stop signs and the amount of traffic we experience on this street,” said Benz resident Tony Natoli. “I do hope it works. It will work.” Benz was built by the county decades ago, before the city of Santa Clarita formed. The residential street, which fronts about 26 homes, became a cut-through when Copper Hill Drive opened to Bouquet Canyon Road, a major route for city traffic. Benz now handles about 3,300 cars a day. The residents, who voice support for the plight of their neighbors on Benz, say the new signs will block direct access to their neighborhood. “They’re robbing Peter to pay Paul,” said Ogo Johnson, who lives on Cross Creek Drive. “I’m going to have to drive a mile and a half to get to our home,” said Bob McCall, a Cross Creek neighbor. Yi said that option would affect other residential streets unfairly, restrict access in the neighborhood and create a trap situation. Yi met informally with a few of these residents Feb. 22 and hammered out the plan he presented as an option to the council Tuesday. Many who did not attend the February community meeting said they were disappointed in Tuesday’s outcome. “We feel disenfranchised, we’re not part of the city,” Johnson said. Many said they will to look to the county for relief. Yi will need the county’s OK to place signs on Copper Hill and Buckhorn, which are county-controlled. Ferry faulted the county for its failure to foresee the Benz headache, and praised the civic mindedness of its long-suffering residents. “If (the county) knew (about) the Benz extension to Copper Hill they should have planned it differently,” he said. “I truly want to mediate the two neighborhoods and make them happy. The Benz people keep giving me 50 people at every meeting for three years.” Judy O’Rourke, (661) 257-5255 judy.orourke@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PASADENA — Along with the higher temperatures expected next week comes renewed concern over the fire danger level in Angeles National Forest. Meteorologists expect an increase in winds from the northeast to raise temperatures and lower humidity levels, which combine to provide dangerous fuel for wildfires. But officials said the fire danger is slightly less than last week considering the winds are expected to be weaker. Temperatures could reach the mid-90s by the middle of next week. Last week, the U.S. Forest Service upgraded the fire danger level from high to very high, the first time this year the forest has received a very high caution, said Kathy Peterson, spokeswoman for the Angeles National Forest. “Very high” is the third-highest caution level used by the forest service, with critical and extreme being the highest two levels. Peterson said she expects the danger level to remain at very-high for a month or longer. October is traditionally the most dangerous month for wildfires. Not only do winds from the San Gabriel Mountains bring higher temperatures and lower humidity, they also often ignite wildfires by blowing embers from abandoned campfires, which can spark an “enormous” amount of dead brush in the forest, said Matt Mathes, spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service in California. Since air moves from high- to low-pressure systems, next week’s high-temperature, low-humidity winds are caused by an offshore flow of air from the high-pressure system over land to the low-pressure system over the ocean. The pressure systems were flopped last weekend, creating cooler weather as cold air formed over the ocean moved onto land.last_img read more

first_imgZack Semke is the manager of business development at Hammer & Hand, a company specializing in high-performance building with offices in Washington and Oregon. Air managementThe air barrier for the project is a layer of OSB with taped seams (A), sandwiched between the existing 2×4 stud wall and a new 2×4 wall built immediately inboard. This location protects the air barrier from inadvertent occupant damage (nail holes from hanging artwork, for example) on into the future. This is the third of four posts delving into the anatomy of high-performance wall assemblies, beginning with the Karuna House in Oregon. This week’s post explains our approach at the Glasswood Passive House Retrofit. RELATED ARTICLES Creating High-Performance WallsHigh-Performance Walls, Part 2High Performance Walls, Part 4 Vapor managementBoth the OSB and EPS are vapor retarders, making the assembly semi-vapor permeable in both directions (B). The EPS warms the structural plywood sheathing so that moisture remains in vapor form and can diffuse out of the assembly harmlessly. The ventilated rainscreen cavity (A) adds modest drying capacity to this semi-permeable assembly, but its main purpose in this context is to dry the cladding and facilitate drainage of bulk water. Heat managementThe two 2×4 stud walls (B) are filled with high-density cellulose insulation for a combined center of cavity insulative value of R-26. Two inches of continuous EPS foam insulation (A) adds another R-9 to the assembly, and is only modestly thicker than the exterior insulation required by code. The sum of these three layers of insulation, plus sheet goods and air films, is R-33 (whole wall) or R-39 (center of cavity). Water managementThe Hardie siding (A) provides the first line of defense from water intrusion, with a rainscreen cavity (C) behind that allowing water to drain away. A layer of 60-minute building paper (B) provides the next line of defense, while a continuous layer of DensGlass sheathing immediately outboard of the EPS serves as the final water barrier and adds code-required fire resistance to the assembly. A little extra insulation, a second stud wall, and a bit of attention to detail on air sealing brought a code-required envelope retrofit into über-efficient Passive House territory.Next: The grand finale in our Evolution of Enclosure wall assembly series covers the Madrona Passive House. All four analyses are part of our building science exhibit, “Evolution of Enclosure,” that recently completed a 5-week showing at AIA Portland’s Center for Architecture. As a Passive House retrofit project (the first such effort on a commercial building in North America), Glasswood presented unique opportunities and challenges to solve for its high-performance wall assembly design. Because code already required new exterior insulation, structural sheathing, and added fire resistance, the extra effort to attain Passive House certification — air sealing and thicker insulation — was modest. But the team did need to figure out what to do with the existing stud wall.last_img read more
