Thousands to attend National Hunger Strike Commemoration Parade in Lifford and Strabane

first_imgA large crowd is expected to attend the National Hunger Strike Commemoration Parade taking place in Lifford/Strabane this coming Sunday.The event will be one of largest public events the area has ever witnessed with thousands of people from every corner of Ireland and further afield, along with many visiting bands, attending.Speaking to the media beforehand the local MLA Maolíosa McHugh the event is set to be one of the biggest the area has seen. He said “The Hunger Strike period of 1980/81 was a defining watershed in our history and had a particularly profound effect on areas like Strabane where pride in the Hunger Strikers –their courage and their sacrifice remains undiminished and on Sunday the local community will turn out in strength to remember them.“A massive amount of work has went in to organising this parade and wider programme of commemorative events to ensure a fitting tribute to their memory.“With thousands of people from every corner of Ireland and further afield also in attendance, along with many visiting bands, it will be one the largest public events the area has ever witnessed.“The parade will be forming up in the Diamond in Lifford at 2:30pm and will make its way, along the Lifford Road, around the ASDA roundabout and onto Bradley Way, onto Bridge Street, over the Bridge, down Market Street and finishing at Abercorn Square. “The organisers have liaised with the authorities on both sides of the border and will deploy large numbers of stewards on the day in an effort to keep traffic disruption to an absolute minimum.“We look forward to welcoming and hosting families of the Hunger Strikers to the area and in making it a memorable occasion for them and for all attending. Given the massive influx of people, local businesses and particularly local hotels/B&Bs, shops, food outlets and pubs are also set to receive a welcome boost in trade.”Thousands to attend National Hunger Strike Commemoration Parade in Lifford and Strabane was last modified: July 30th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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

Minisplit Heat Pumps and Zero-Net-Energy Homes

first_imgWhat do you want to know more about?Do you have any questions related to designing a net-zero-energy building? Now’s your opportunity to get some of your questions answered by someone who has done it for himself and others. As they say, good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment! Perhaps my experience can help you along with one of your challenges.Here’s how this “mini-consultation” will work:Step 1. In the comment section below, write a specific problem that you’re facing or question that you have about zero-net-energy home design. Feel free to ask multiple questions if you’d like. Please, be as specific as possible.Step 2. You must submit these questions by Friday January 10 at 9:00 p.m.Step 3. I will select five of the best questions and write in-depth responses to those questions on Thursday January 16th.The goal is that these responses will have tangible impact on your work, and that it can then help others that are facing similar issues. Think of this like a mini-consultation with me. I’d like to go into more detail that I can in the comment section of an article in a forum. Wish list1 – An efficient, affordable air-source heat pump that provides space heating, space cooling, and domestic hot water.2 – An air-to-water unit that makes 160°F water at outdoor temperatures of 0°F, to serve as a drop-in replacement for existing fossil-fuel boilers. For the last several years, just about every project I’ve worked on other than large university buildings has used minisplit heat pumps for heating and cooling. Why?1 – There is no combustion and no need for a chimney or vent.2 – In space conditioning applications, heat pumps can provide heating and cooling.3 – The equipment installation costs and the operating costs compare favorably with other options.4 – Heat pumps are a natural partner to solar electric systems to achieve zero-net-energy buildings.In addition, we’re using heat pumps to make domestic hot water (DHW) and even to heat swimming pools. All of these products are air-source heat pumps (ASHP) which extract heat from the air to supply heat to the load.We’ve been metering the energy consumption at a number of buildings using heat pumps. We’ve seen through our own experience, and through more precise lab-based measurement efforts such as those performed by NREL and others, that the Japanese minisplit heat pumps live up to their performance claims in terms of both output and efficiency. What I know (or I think I know…)(Caution: unfunded research follows.)1 – Compact superinsulated homes in climates with design temperatures of 0°F or more can often be heated with a single zone unit with the wall cassette located in the main space. As long as the doors to other rooms remain open, the temperatures in those rooms will usually be within 2°F of the space where the cassette is located. We’ve put electric radiant panels in bedrooms in these homes, and there’s a large variation in how much people use them; the variation seems to be driven mostly by whether the door is open.2 – Without specific detailed measurement of in situ Coefficient of Performance of the units (COP), the amount of energy used by these units, metered separately, agrees well with the usage predicted by simple energy models.3 – In temperatures below design temperatures, the units have enough capacity to heat the houses even though we don’t size them with an intentional safety factor. Recently it dropped to -5°F here on Martha’s Vineyard, and my Fujitsu ¾-ton ducted unit was heating my basement (because the air handler is in the basement, and I haven’t got the ducts installed yet) and one-story house, a total of over 2,400 gross square feet, to 70°F. The load had to have been more than the published output of the unit at that temperature (14,000 BTU/hour). I was impressed. The best single zone systems have little drop-off in capacity down to 5°F.4 – The cold climate Mitsubishi Hyperheats are rated down to -13°F and we’ve seen them running at temperatures below -20°F. Colleagues are reporting minisplits not specifically rated at these temperatures running happily at them nonetheless.5 – Treating these units like furnaces and implementing significant temperature setbacks doesn’t appear to save a lot of energy because they will run at full speed when the temperature is set back up, which is a less efficient operating point. And because they aren’t usually oversized for the house load, it can take a long time to get the house back up to temperature. At my house we regularly set down to 66°F overnight, or when we are both going to be gone all day at work, and set back up to 70°F when we’re there – unless the outdoor temperature is going to be in the teens or below, in which case we don’t set it back.6 – Properly designed and installed ducted systems are usually really quiet. However, I made the mistake on my new system of installing the air handler with a very short return – about three feet and one elbow to the return grille – and I’m going to have to do some sound absorption. The supply side is really quiet. Most of our ducted systems are hard to hear, most of the time.7 – The systems with high outputs at low temperatures are also delivering air at higher temperatures than traditional heat pumps, which is more comfortable. I’ve measured supply air at 120°F from my air handler this past month.8 – If the homeowners let the filters get dirty, output can drop dramatically! These aren’t your father’s 100,000 BTU/h gas furnace. The blowers have significantly lower static pressure capability than what most HVAC folks are used to. My air handler allows the external static pressure to be selected at the controller (not by the homeowner) and the maximum is 0.36 inches. So ducts may need to be larger than you think if the distances are significant or there are a lot of fittings.9 – In cooling, the fact that these systems are variable-speed and have such a wide range of operating points means that oversizing appears to have little consequence (usually in a heating climate, the heat pump size is determined by the heating load, so the cooling ends up oversized). Our clients here on humid Martha’s Vineyard have been very pleased with these units’ dehumidification performance.10 – Minisplits are not yet drop-in replacements for fossil-fuel furnaces and boilers in conventional housing, but we’ve been applying them selectively in cases where the existing system is due for replacement. Surprisingly, from a source energy point of view they reduce carbon emissions. On one project, a single oil boiler heated and provided hot water to two adjoining homes totaling 7,500 square feet. It was replaced by three Daikin Altherma air-to-water heat pumps and two electric boilers (for severe weather – the Althermas hadn’t enough capacity, and more importantly, high enough temperature water at low outdoor temperatures). Annual electrical usage into the new system was just under 20,000 kWh. Oil consumption before the retrofit was 3,187 gallons/year, with associated CO2 emissions of 71,389 lbs/year. Using the EPA eGrid figure of 728 lbs CO2/MWh for the NEWE generation region, CO2 emissions dropped to 14,457 lbs/year, an 80% reduction. Fuel cost was reduced by 70%.11 – Ducted systems need well insulated ducts and they need to be airtight. My system has a design air flow of 353 cfm. Lose 100 cfm of that into the basement, and have ducts wrapped with bubble wrap, and half the output might not reach the living space. What we’d like to know more about1 – A consistent and understandable rating system for both capacity and efficiency. It’s frustrating to go to the AHRI Directory and find the heating rating at 17°F (the lower of the two rating temperatures) and then learn that the unit has a higher capacity at 5°F in the manufacturer’s engineering literature.2 – A good quick method for taking the HSPF and SEER ratings, assuming they can be made comparable and useful, and modifying them for different climates. I know how the machines we’re using in New England work, but I can’t tell you much about what to expect in substantially different climates.3 – A rating that includes how much power the system draws on standby, when the thermostat is satisfied. We’ve measured some surprisingly high wattage, and inquired of the manufacturer, to be told that we’re measuring improperly and that because of very low power factors the actual power draw is much lower. I don’t think we really know.center_img MARC’S ONLINE COURSE Interested in learning more?

Aggressive drivers want to take advantage of driverless cars

first_imgAggressive drivers are excited for the outbreak of autonomous cars on public roads, seeing it as a way to bully computers that err on the side of caution, according to new research.The London School of Economics and Goodyear conducted one of the largest surveys to gauge attitudes towards autonomous cars, with 12,000 drivers in 11 countries polled.See Also: Most Americans say they’re ready for an autonomous futureOne of the key findings was aggressive drivers expect autonomous cars to try and accommodate all types of drivers. In a situation where the self-driving system is unsure of the outcome, drivers expect Google, Uber, and Tesla to build systems that avoid accidents at all costs.“I’ll be overtaking all the time because they’ll be sticking to the rules,” said one driver in the survey. “They are going to stop. So you’re going to mug them right off. They’re going to stop and you’re just going to nip round,” said another.Across Europe, U.K. drivers have the most negative view of autonomous cars, according to the survey. 55 percent of U.K. drivers said they were uncomfortable sharing the road with an autonomous car, and 83 percent were concerned the car might malfunction.That’s higher than the average for non-U.K. nations polled, at 39 and 71 percent, respectively.Driverless tech still looking for on ramp anywayAutonomous cars are still an emerging technology that is only available on certain public roads, in certain cities. The U.K. and Germany are leading the race in Europe, followed by France, which recently endorsed some autonomous car tests on public roads.Outside of Europe, the U.S., Singapore, and China are the main hubs for self-driving tests. Baidu, Tencent, and Alibaba are all funding tests, either directly or through startups.In Singapore, nuTonomy, a MIT spin-out, has begun shuttle tests, with a goal of launching the service in 2018.

Belga laments costly miscommunication as Rain or Shine misses out on semis

first_imgPBA IMAGESThe phrase “breaks of the game” were thrown a lot during Beau Belga’s impromptu press conference after Rain or Shine lost to TNT 118-114 in the quarterfinals of the PBA Governors’ Cup.From missed shots to bricked free throws, every thing fell under “breaks of the game,” but there was none bigger than the Elasto Painters’ final offensive set.ADVERTISEMENT LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary A miscommunication episode between Belga and import J’Nathan Bullock erased Rain or Shine’s hopes of advancing to the semifinals and that’s something the power forward regretted deeply right away.READ: Rice, Castro deliver as TNT survives Rain or Shine for semis berthFEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Coach Caloy [Garcia] said the play was for J’Nathan to attack the defense one-on-one and I will sag off outside for a jumper,” said Belga in Filipino Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “I was surprised when he made a drop pass instead of a kick-out and I was already too far away from the rim.”“My momentum was going to the corner and if the pass was in my direction, well who knows?

New Tokyo fish market starts traditionally with tuna auction

first_imgTOKYO – Tokyo’s famous fish market reopened Thursday at a new location but retained its most famous tradition: the tuna auction.The customary clanging of bells opened the auction for raw and frozen tuna, which crammed the huge warehouse wall-to-wall, at the waterfront Toyosu facility. The rhythmical shouts of the auctioneers and the special hand signals by the bidders that followed were unchanged from Tsukiji, the smaller, more accessible home the market recently left after more than eight decades.The top bid for tuna, a delicacy much like premium-grade beef in Japan, was 4.28 million yen ($38,000), not an unusually high price for quality tuna.The more than 400 kinds of seafood at the market come from all over Japan, as well as from abroad, including octopus, eel, sea urchin and other items special to Japanese cuisine.The market serves top restaurants and everyday supermarkets alike. The move was delayed for two years because of worries about contamination, including arsenic, at the Toyosu site. Measures were taken to ensure safety, such as better water pumps and extra concrete sealing.Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike attended the opening and expressed hopes for the location’s success.“Of course, things are different here,” she said of how the new place may take getting used to.“We must build the Toyosu brand, day by day, to make it a symbol of Tokyo, and of Japan. I hope to move forward with all of you.”Officials and workers then clapped rhythmically in celebration of Toyosu’s opening, the same customary gesture for good luck that had closed Tsukiji on Oct. 6.Free-of-charge tours for the public start Saturday, including seeing the auction from a huge glass window. Visitors will not be able to go on the auction floor as they could at Tsukiji. Reporters got a tour of the grounds Thursday.Like Tsukiji, Toyosu also has a vegetable wholesale area, where auctions also take place. In several spots in the same market complex are tiny restaurants, including the ones that used to be at Tsukiji but also new ones.Still, much of the humbly quaint atmosphere of Tsukiji was gone in the sterile factory-like environment of Toyosu. Whether Toyosu can attract tourist traffic remains to be seen.Serving as reminders were the people zipping around in their scooting carts, as busy as ever.Toyosu is a bit farther to get to than Tsukiji, which is within walking distance of downtown Ginza. Toyosu is reachable by an unmanned monorail called Yurikamome. A walkway from Shijo-mae station, which means “in front of the market,” leads right to the Toyosu market.About 40,000 people used to visit Tsukiji each day, not just retailers and restaurant operators but also “salarymen” on lunch breaks and tourists from all over the world.It’s unclear whether the stalls serving noodles and raw-tuna bowls that remain in the area surrounding Tsukiji will continue to be a draw without the backdrop of a real market.Many fish wholesalers, workers and supporters had opposed the move out of Tsukiji, alleging that Toyosu was inefficient and unsafe. A handful of businesses were continuing to sell inside Tsukiji, saying they hoped to fight the planned tearing down of the old construction.Tsukiji is being turned into a parking lot for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. What gets built afterward is undecided, according to the Tokyo city government. But it’s clearly prime real estate, and plans under consideration include a casino.___Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at https://twitter.com/yurikageyamaOn Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/yurikageyama/?hl=enHer work can be found at https://www.apnews.com/search/yuri%20kageyamalast_img read more

EC replaces Kolkata police commissioner 3 other Bengal top cops

first_imgKolkata: The Election Commission of India (EC) on Friday night removed Kolkata Police Commissioner Anuj Sharma and Bidhannagar Police Commissioner Gyanwant Singh ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in a major shake-up in the police establishment of the state. The announcement comes days after BJP leaders had alleged that free and fair elections would not be possible in the state under these officers. Dr Rajesh Kumar, Additional Director General of Police (ADG), Pollution Control Board, was made the new Kolkata top cop, while Natarajan Ramesh Babu, ADG and IGP, Operations, was named the Bidhannagar police commissioner, an ECI notification about the decisions said. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja The poll body also named Avannu Ravindranath, DC (Airport Division) of Bidhannagar, as the new superintendent of police (SP) of Birbhum and appointed Srihari Pandey, DC KAP, 3rd Battalion, as the SP of Diamond Harbour. The EC wrote to West Bengal Chief Secretary Malay Dey, directing an immediate implementation of the directives and seeking a compliance report in respect to the joining of the transferred officers within 24 hours. The commission also directed that the present incumbent officers being shifted should not be involved by the state government in any election-related duty.

Sharma had replaced Kumar in mid-February. Incidentally, after Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee’s wife Rujira was allegedly found carrying gold at the Kolkata airport, the BJP had lodged a complaint with the EC against Bidhannagar Police Commissioner Gyanwant Singh. The party had demanded that Singh be held “responsible” for the alleged police interference, if “prima facie any such incident happened”.last_img read more

Reus honoured to be named Dortmund captain

first_imgGerman forward Marco Reus has revealed he is delighted to be named Borussia Dortmund captain for the 2018-19 season.Reus, 29, has suffered from a succession of injury problems in recent years but recovered on time to nail a place in Joachim Low’s squad for the ill-fated Russia 2018 campaign.The German winger has netted 96 goals in 204 appearances for Dortmund and is now reunited with head coach Lucien Favre, who he played under at Borussia Monchengladbach.“The coach announced that I am the new captain,” the 29-year-old said in a statement.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R.

Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“In the final third today, we were nowhere near good enough. We could still be playing for a couple of days, I don’t think we’d have scored.“We’ve had praise and we’ve had a lot of credit. Now we have to take the criticism and when we’re not good enough, I need to tell the players when they’re not good enough.“They’ve done ever so well so far so I can’t go over the top in terms of criticism but we’ll definitely analyse it and if individuals need to be told or they need to be told as a team, that’s my job to do it.“The squad’s getting healthy now, there’s a lot of competition.
