If you are not number one, you still might have work to do to maintain it,” said Richards, who is all about medal contention in London.”Definitely, that is the way I have to think as a professional athlete. I always have to think I am able to win a global title, break records – and world records,” he continued.OPTIMISTICHe said he is optimistic about next year, due to his ability to “fight through injuries, surgery and still make it to the Olympic final” in Rio.”It kinda gives me hope that I will still manage to get into the top 10 or even top three in the world next year in London, so I am really looking forward to that,” he told The Gleaner, adding that he took lessons away from Rio ahead of the new season.”Patience is one of the things I took forward from 2016, to be mindful of the fact that anything can happen and not to pressure myself too much.”I look forward to the possibilities that are ready and waiting for me in 2017, if the Lord wills,” he added.Richards is also a 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist and Pan Am Games gold medal winner last year. He explained that despite not medalling in Rio, he will grow from the experience.”I am grateful for what happened this year. I had a few injuries and because of that I wasn’t able to perform as well as I would like, but I still managed to make it to the Olympic final and I am grateful,” he reiterated.last_img read more

first_imgSteam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours An MRI revealed a torn left ACL, an injury that will sideline Porzingis for the rest of this season and perhaps a good deal of the next.“Obviously he was devastated that he has that injury and so are we,” coach Jeff Hornacek said. “It’s a tough thing to have happened. He’s had such a great year and we’re trying to grow with him.”Disappointment could be felt not only in New York but around the NBA. Porzingis is a popular player for his wide array of skills at 7-foot-3 that led Kevin Durant to nickname him a “unicorn,” but also for the personality he brought to New York when he arrived in 2015 as a teenager from Latvia.“Was hoping for the best news when I saw the play after the game,” LeBron James wrote on Twitter . “Best wishes and have a speedy healthy recovery.”Porzingis was set to play on James’ team next week when he made his debut as an All-Star, and he was also set to defend his title in the Skills Challenge. He hoped to return from Los Angeles to a playoff race after not coming close in his first two seasons.ADVERTISEMENT That’s all that’s left after Porzingis was lost to a torn ACL, ending his All-Star season and probably any hopes the Knicks had of making the playoffs.They say they’ll keep playing hard, but the first trade they made after Porzingis’ injury showed they aren’t loading up for a playoff push.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“Look, we want to compete every night,” general manager Scott Perry said Wednesday. “We want to continue to fight.”Porzingis had hoped they would fight all the way to the playoffs for the first time in his career. But those plans were derailed when Porzingis crashed to the court, punching the floor in pain after a dunk in the second quarter of a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. View comments “He is a competitor, man. That’s one thing he wants to do, get the journey started right away,” teammate Courtney Lee said. “So I think he is mentally strong and he is mentally ready to switch his focus from playing and helping us make the playoffs to now rehabbing and getting back 100 percent and helping us when he gets back.”Well-wishers around the league think he will.“Setback for a major comeback!” the National Basketball Players Association tweeted, with a photo of Porzingis.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Nonito Donaire vs Naoya Inoue is BWAA 2019 Fight of the Year OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player awardcenter_img Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases New York Knicks forward Kristaps Porzingis is helped off the court after being injured during the first half of the team’s NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson New York was already facing a tough climb from 11th place in the Eastern Conference, and that would have been difficult even with Porzingis carrying them.The Knicks probably would have needed to find some help by Thursday’s trade deadline, and perhaps they would have tried given Porzingis’ stated desire for a playoff push. But now they are better off playing for the lottery than the playoffs, and any moves they make would likely be with that in mind.That appeared to be the case Wednesday when they sent Willy Hernangomez, voted to the All-Rookie first team last season, to Charlotte. The Knicks got back a pair of second-round picks along with forward Johnny O’Bryant, who Perry said would be waived.“We were without second-round picks,” Perry said, “and we value first-round picks and second-round picks, but we were without picks in 2020 and 2021. So this deal allowed us to do that.”For now, the Knicks will likely give more time to rookie guard Frank Ntilikina, and Perry and Hornacek said players from the team’s G League affiliate could get opportunities.Porzingis had at least given New York reason to entertain playoff hopes in a season that started days after Carmelo Anthony was traded to Oklahoma City. Even the Knicks didn’t know if Porzingis was ready to flourish in the No. 1 role at 22.But he wanted the challenge and has been up for it, averaging 22.7 points and a league-leading 2.4 blocked shots per game.The only thing he couldn’t really do is put to rest injury concerns that often follow players at his age and size. He had missed at least 10 games in each of his first two seasons and will finish with only 48 games played in this one.He had come back stronger this season in hopes of becoming more durable and better handling the pounding in the post.Now he will have to work even harder to come back from a serious injury.last_img read more

Said Robertson: “I know the headline (today) is going to be about the referees, but if it went five games it made a difference, but we beat them in three.” Alta Loma, ranked No. 6 in CIF-Southern Section Division I-A, played catch-up the entire match. The Braves fell behind 9-2 in Game 1, and never got closer than four points. Alta Loma (4-6 overall, 0-1 league) stayed close in Game 2, but Highlander Emily Schulze’s kill on a game point to tie the score 26-26. Robertson turned toward the opposing coach, Alta Loma’s Cindy Gurney and said, “I agree with you Cindy. You’re right.” The two opposing coaches agreed on one thing: they didn’t like how tight that match was being refereed. UPLAND – It was the third game in an important Baseline League opener on Tuesday, and Upland girls volleyball coach Scott Robertson did something he had never done before. And there’s a good chance he’d never do it again. center_img The Highlanders (11-4, 1-0), ranked No. 7 in CIF-SS Division I-AA, won the final two points of Game 2 on Schulze’s serve. “I thought we passed very well (in Game 1),” Robertson said. “But we’ve struggled in Game 2s.” Like they did in Game 2, the Braves had brief leads in Game 3, but the Highlanders scored four of the final six points after the match was tied 21-21. “I think we were nervous,” Gurney said. “Why, I can’t understand. But it’s very tough to open league and face Upland at (their) home.” Tiarra Pendleton led Alta Loma with nine kills and seven digs, Rachel Freeno had six kills and six digs and Kassy Frailey had 13 digs. Robertson saw it as a big league-opening win. “A lot of people saw us as a third-place team,” he said. A big reason for that is youth and inexperience. But sophomore Morgan Carty had 14 kills, senior Maria Medina had nine kills, 10 digs and two aces, and freshman Kylie McLogan added six kills for the Highlanders. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Plenty of clouds around today as we have cold air advancing from the north and west, and moisture lifting into Ohio from the SW. We expect at least scattered rain or snow showers over 75% of the state today, with only the NW quadrant having a good chance of missing the action. From I-70 north, precipitation will be mostly snow. South of I 70, we can see rain, sleet, freezing rain or snow. Liquid equivalent precipitation will be a few hundredths to .4″, but the upper end of the range will be limited to areas well south of I-70, and a few hundredths to .25″ will be the most general precipitation amount today.Much colder tomorrow, but clouds give way to sun. and high pressure parks over the eastern corn belt. WE stay sunny, cold and dry for Saturday too, but temps start to moderate a bit on Sunday. That temperatures moderation comes with some clouds, but for right now we are keeping precipitation out of the forecast.Snow Sunday night through Monday nightWe have our next leg down in temps for the first part of next week, with a cold front ripping through the area on Monday. That front will bring some snow to Ohio, with the potential for a coating to 2 inches over most of the state. We turn much colder for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and clouds from the frontal complex (along with a bit of precipitation) may linger into early Tuesday morning before breaking up. Tuesday likely is the coldest day, but Wednesday is no slouch either. Thursday brings clouds back and a few flurries, but nothing well organized. Then Friday and Saturday of next week we finish out our 10 day forecast window with partly to mostly sunny skies, but still well below normal temps.So, overall, the number one feature of the forecast this morning is colder air…temps will average well below normal now through nearly thanksgiving. But, the other take away is that we have a little less moisture potential…partly because we are talking about more snow, and partly because we are seeing a reduction in available moisture for the system late this weekend through early next week.last_img read more

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market mike kirkwood For content and application developers there is more opportunity than ever to monetize subscriptions. The Apple App Store has sparked a revolution in the mobile space generating billions of dollars for Apple and also creating look-alike services from nearly every mobile vendor. In the iPhone OS 3.0, Apple included a “Store Kit”, which allows an application such as a game or a news source to include the ability to offer subscription services. Additionally, some of the crown jewels of the content industry – The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times – have been exploring the implications of a pay wall for both mobile and Web access to content. The news industry is in the midst of defining where free vs. subscriptions are appropriate. All in all, it’s a complicated issue, but the signs are clear: Not everything will be free, no matter how hard Google tries to make all content available. For the content and apps that individuals want to pay for, Aria Systems is making it easy for companies to manage the connection between their assets and the users who want to access it.Subscription and Billing in the Cloud This week, we had a chance to sit down and talk with Ed Sullivan, CEO of Aria Systems to learn more about subscription payment in the cloud, including everything from casual games to enterprise class applications.It gets complicated for developers implementing such a subscription service to consider all of details with subscription user tracking and revenue recognition. Many of these scenarios require detailed consideration and business logic when implementing that can take time away from the core offering. So, the question becomes: Is there a way a content or application provider get a handle on all of their customers across different channels in an easy way through a cloud offering that can be connected to the different form factors that applications are delivered into.Big or Small BusinessesOne benefit for on-demand companies is that they can maximize their back-office functionality with a platform like Aria, which integrates billing, customer management, and marketing tools into a single, on-demand application. In our interview, Sullivan pointed out that Aria plugs into QuickBooks, SalesForce, NetSuite that companies may have deployed today.Case Study: iPad Subscriptions for Content Providers One company, Issuu, has already signed on with Aria in order to be ready for subscription revenue management using the iPad. The iPad is a great example where a traditional media provider may want to charge for this form of content or charge the individual for subscription services across form factors.Although we don’t know who Issuu’s customers are and whether a brand like the New York Times is part of the mix, it seems ideal to get news on the iPad and to pay once for Web, mobile, and print versions. Paperboy, please deliver a copy of the Times to our iPad.As far as cloud applications go, getting paid for consumer subscriptions is an important piece of the fabric for managing customer relationships.

first_imgR-value is inflatedTo GBA senior editor Martin Holladay, what Fusaro is describing sounds like the Thermomass Building Insulation System . These panels consist of Dow Styrofoam polystyrene insulation and two outer layers of concrete held together with a grid of fiber-composite fasteners. According to the company, the system is designed to minimize thermal bridging that would degrade the performance of the insulation. RELATED ARTICLES What does thermal mass really do?Chlupp (whose super-efficient home in Fairbanks, Alaska, called SunRise House, has been featured on GBA in the past), believes thermal mass is a great asset, but only when it’s put to use correctly. “Insulation on both sides of your mass defeats the purpose,” Chlupp writes. “In a heating climate, any thermal energy which travels through the foam layer into the concrete mass has no ability to travel back into the conditioned space. At least I don’t know of any scientific study that showed this differently.“I was never able to reproduce it in my humble tests … Heat simply does not travel back into the building … which is the case if the thermal mass is not insulated to the interior. So you get some decrement delay within the mass layer, but it is very much limited by its design and cannot find its full potential. If you are after heat storage capacity, decrement delay and absorption capacity, build a concrete wall and insulate on the outside in a heating climate or opposite in a cooling climate. Or use a medium-weight assembly with a thick layer of dense-packed cellulose with a fraction of its embodied energy.“We shouldn’t forget that ICF walls have about the highest embodied energy there is … and they are expensive.”John Klingel suggests that Fusaro try to visualize how heat energy will escape the house, and base his insulation plan on that. “Your design will determine where to insulate.” And in regards to ICF construction, Klingel adds this: “The wind blows, the (manure) flows, and where it stops ain’t nobody knows.” Green Basics: Insulated concrete forms Should Insulated Concrete Forms be Air-Sealed?Code Green: Mass Walls Increase Insulation Value How to Finish Exterior Foundation Insulation ICFs are an alternativeInsulating concrete forms (ICFs) are also a combination of foam and concrete. They consist of hollow-core foam forms that are stacked in place, reinforced with steel and filled with concrete. They are, in effect, the mirror image of Thermomass walls: concrete on the inside, foam on the outside.Andrew Lennox suggests them as an alternative for Fusaro, adding that the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corp. recently completed a study showing that ICF walls “provide a 5-day thermal lag due to thermal mass that contributes to thermal performance over and above the R-value in the assembly.” Plus, he adds, the R-value in a typical ICF wall can reach 28, depending on the particular product.Gaining a higher R-value than the insulating material alone would provide sounds like the claims Thermomass makes. And, says Thorsten Chlupp, the five-day time lag on ICF walls is “certainly different” than a CMHC study of 2006 would suggest. “The ICF industry is very good about coming up with wonderful claims for their walls,” Thorsten writes. “The only one confirmed in independent testing is their inherit airtightness. Which is, in my humble opinion, the only reason that ICF homes perform well.” Insulating concrete formsThe problem is that 2 in. of extruded polystyrene foam has an R-value of only 10. Concrete contributes very little thermal insulation to the assembly, so the R-19.27 Fusaro cites would seem to be little more than wishful thinking.“The claim that the thermal mass of the concrete wall increases the effective R-value of the wall is false, although you hear it often,” Holladay writes.“In some climates, especially with dependable nighttime temperatures below 72 degrees and dependable daytime temperatures above 72 degrees, walls with a lot of thermal mass can lower the energy used for heating or cooling. However, let’s not confuse thermal mass effects with R-value.“In most parts of Climate Zone 5A [where Fusaro is building], you won’t be getting any thermal mass benefits from a Thermomass wall – especially if the wall is mostly below grade.”Yet R-19.27 is exactly what Thermomass claims for its wall system. “Due to the mass effect created by Thermomass, a system’s performance R-value can be two to three times greater than the material R-value,” the web site says.center_img Peter Fusaro is building a high-efficiency house on spec, and his plans include insulating the foundation walls. The question is how.One option is to apply rigid foam to the outside of the foundation. That would leave roughly 1 ft. of insulation above grade, and Fusaro is concerned about how durable the foam would be.Another possibility is to use a sandwich of 2 in. of foam between two outer faces of concrete, each 4 in. thick, making an assembly with both structural and thermal properties. He’s been told a wall built that way would have an effective R-value of 19.27.In a Q&A post at GreenBuildingAdvisor, Fusaro looks for advice. That’s the subject of this week’s Q&A Spotlight. GREEN PRODUCT GUIDE Our expert’s opinionHere’s GBA technical director Peter Yost’s take:My favorite way to insulate a basement is still to place all the insulation on the outside of the wall, for two reasons. One, it gives the highest probability that the insulation will be continuous throughout; and, two, it pulls all of the mass of the wall to the interior, giving the best opportunity for the concrete mass to buffer temperature extremes — although this is more about thermal comfort than it is about increased energy efficiency due to thermal mass effects.Exterior insulation is not without its issues; it is difficult to protect during and after construction, and it can lead to sticky planar transition details as the top of the foundation wall meets the above-grade wall assembly.Per usual, Martin has nailed this: few climates yield significant added thermal mass benefits (higher thermal mass “effective” R-values), and with most of basement walls below grade, thermal mass effects are further dampened.Oak Ridge National Laboratory has done quite a bit of research on thermal mass effects in homes. Take a look at this report from ORNL . You can see that the whole-house impact of significant thermal mass is quite modest, even in climates such as Santa Fe, New Mexico, and all of the research is for above-grade assemblies, never for basements.Additionally, it is telling that in this BSC Building America report, only one high-performance foundation analysis even mentions thermal mass effects (Case Study 12), and even in this case thermal mass effects are mentioned only in passing.last_img read more
