Pakistan confident of West Indies visit

first_imgLAHORE, Pakistan (CMC):The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said here yesterday that the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) were ready to play two Twenty20 Internationals here next March once adequate security could be guaranteed.Speaking to media here, PCB executive committee chairman Najam Sethi said he had been in touch with the WICB on the matter, and the Caribbean governing body were keen on the move.”West Indies have asked to make satisfactory security for the team,” he said.He added: “We gave a proposal to WICB that after West Indies’ tour [against] England on March 9, they can visit Pakistan between March 11 to 15.”In return, Sethi said the PCB would give the green light to a request from the WICB to play two T20 Internationals in Florida at the end of March.West Indies recently played a full series of three Twenty20 Internationals, three One-Day Internationals and three Tests against Pakistan, but all games were scheduled in the United Arab Emirates.The PCB had requested the limited overs games be played in Pakistan, but the move was turned down by the WICB.The security situation has remained volatile in the country. Last March, a suicide blast killed 69 people and injured over 300 people in Lahore while two months ago, an explosion in south-western Pakistan killed nearly 50 people.IMPROVED SECURITY”We told them (WICB) that the security situation had improved and Pakistan Super League (PSL) final will also be played in Lahore. In this scenario, there is no reason to refuse a tour to Pakistan,” Sethi contended.”If the PSL final is held in Lahore, followed by World T20 champions visit to play T20s in Lahore, then this development will open the door of international cricket in Pakistan.”No major Test-playing nation has toured Pakistan since 2009 when a bus carrying the Sri Lankan Test side was attacked by militants. Several players were injured and policemen killed.last_img read more

Russell on target for hurdles run

first_imgCalabar High’s ace Class One sprint hurdler, De’Jour Russell, the 2015 Class two 100m winner and last year’s Class Two 110 hurdles champion, could still make an individual appearance at this year’s ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships now on at the National Stadium.Russell suffered a minor strain in training last Friday and acting on advice from the school’s doctors, the Calabar camp decided to pull the powerful sprinter from the 100 metres.TENTATIVE COMPETITORHowever, the school tentatively has him to compete in the 110 hurdles, and although his appearance will depend largely on a fitness test prior to his participation in the hurdles, assistant coach Omar Hawes said yesterday he is positive that Russell will turn out for the race.”Last week Friday, he (Russell) had a cramp and the medical persons who examined him advised us to take it easy. We made a decision Saturday night after he came from the doctor to pull him from the explosive 100m,” he said.Hawes said Russell’s progress has been remarkable but they still do not intend to take any chances with him if he is not 100 per cent ready.”He has shown continued progress in training … If the warm up goes well, then he goes out (this morning), if not we are going to pull him.”We will make sure he is the best shape possible to go out and compete, if that’s not the case we will make a decision but it is looking good in terms of his progress from last week Friday to today,” he stated.Meanwhile, Hawes says the Red Hills Road school’s title defence is in tact after two days.”The first day we did well enough to garner points. Day two looked much better for us in terms of qualification for the finals, and we are just taking things in stride one day at a time, but it is looking good and if it continues the title defence is in a better place.last_img read more

Hamas win worries L.A. religious leaders

first_imgThe upset today by the Islamic group Hamas in Palestinian polls angered Jews and Palestinians living in Los Angeles who are concerned about peace throughout the Mideast. Hamas, deemed a terrorist organization by the U.S. and the European Union, announced it would not disarm its military or revise its charter calling for the destruction of Israel. Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, called the decisive win by Hammas over the ruling Fatah faction of the Palestinian Authority “absolutely destructive” to the Middle East peace process. “This is the moment of truth,” Hier said. “You can’t be a bank teller in the morning and a bank robber in evening. You’ve got to make up your mind: Are you going to be Parlimentarians in suits by day, or are you going to wear terrorist hoods by night?” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “What uniform is (Hamas) going to wear? It can’t wear both.” Unless Hamas recognizes “the right of the Jewish state of Israel, Hier said, the United States and the European Union should immediately suspend billions of dollars in aid to the Palestinian Authority. But while Palestinian-Americans worried over the loss of services to Palestinians because of the Hamas vote, they also heralded the strong turnout at the polls as signs of an emerging democracy in the Palestinian region. Maysoon Zayid, founder of the New York Arab-American Comedy Festival that is appearing this week in Los Angeles, said she stayed up all night watching TV in anticipation of the vote, which she called “a worst-case scenario.” “I’ve got a lot of anger _ I am extremely extremely disappointed,” said Zayid, 30, who spends four months a year in the Palestinian region caring for disabled and orphan children. “I am really quite fearful for what the future might bring for Palestine.” She said that not only progress toward peace initiated by Fatah could be undermined, but that funding to non-governmental service organizations, could be cut severed with dire consequences throughout the region. “We’re hoping for the best, I don’t know what to make of it,” said Thousand Oaks resident Silvia Muna , a Christian native of Palestine whose family fled to Jordan in 1948. For the sake of peace, she said Hamas should recognize Israel’s right to exist. Samer Khalaf, a Palestinian-American attorney who divides his time between Los Angeles and New York, said he was also concerned about the Hamas landslide, which he said was not unexpected considering the services it provided Palestinians. “For a chance at peace,” said Khalaf, 36, who is also Christian, “there must be mutual respect and understanding (between Jews and Palestinians) and for two, independent countries.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

How to Vent a Dryer

first_imgNote the following assumptions: First, that 4 pounds of water enters the basement air volume all at once, without any further dissipation to other spaces with which the basement communicates. And second, there is no air exchange between the basement air space and the outdoors.But in fact, whenever the basement is closed up, I run a heat recovery ventilator (HRV), which serves only the basement and acts as our radon mitigation system. At 200 cubic feet per minute (cfm), I am changing the entire volume of the basement air every 45 minutes. Bye-bye 4 pounds of water in the clothes (since the HRV is exhausting warm moist air and replacing it with cold, dry outdoor air that it warms in the heat exchanger).Long story short: In the summer, we dry our clothes for free using the sun, and in the winter we dry them for free because we have to run the HRV anyway. Yes, there is more labor involved, but I just love the thermodynamic payoff.Does this mean you can vent your clothes dryer to the interior of your home? Use the psychrometric calculator to run your own numbers, but clearly:(1) Reduce how much water you need to remove from the clothes by taking advantage of high spin speeds associated with a horizontal-axis clothes washer. I have not weighed loads of wet clothes coming out of top-loading washers, but based on drying time differences, I would bet they have anywhere from 50% to 100% more water in them.(2) You need some sort of air exchange system in the drying space. Dumping 4 pounds to what could be 8 pounds of water into just about any home or space will have a significant affect on interior relative humidity. Some type of air exchange needs to be in the equation.(3) A heat-pump water heater (HPWH) will not handle the latent load from a clothes dryer vented to the interior. Every heat pump has a Sensible Heat Ratio (SHR), letting you know what portion of its capacity services the sensible and the latent load it sees. I rarely see space-conditioning heat pumps that consistently report SHRs, much less heat-pump water heaters. But any dehumidification from a HPWH is incidental at best. These water heaters are not designed for the moisture load the clothes dryer poses, even if their use cycles were in sync.In short, it’s a terrible idea to dump all that moisture into the basement unless you have a way of moving it outdoors. [Editor’s note: Venting a conventional electric-resistance clothes dryer indoors is a code violation. Venting a gas-fired clothes dryer indoors introduces combustion byproducts into your home, which is both a code violation and stupid.]One final note on the “air density” column in the chart above: Why does the density of air go down as we add more moisture at a given air temperature (and pressure)?Essentially, the smaller and lighter-weight water (H2O) molecules fill spaces between and/or push apart the larger and heavier nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2) molecules in the air, with an overall slight decrease in the total weight of air per given volume. It’s counterintuitive that moist air — all other parameters held constant — is less dense than dry air, but this is indeed the case. Culik’s question is the focus for this Q&A Spotlight. RELATED ARTICLES The exhaust from a conventional clothes dryer is full of moisture and lint, and the best place to vent it is directly outside. Matt Culik knows this, but his particular situation makes him wonder whether there are circumstances when this rule might be broken.Culik will soon be moving into a new house, and the intended laundry room does not have a vent connection for a clothes dryer. Coincidentally, he is planning to replace an old electric hot water heater with a heat-pump water heater, and this has given him an idea.“Rather than drill a hole in the side of the house for the vent,” he asks in a Q&A post at Green Building Advisor, “would it make sense to vent the hot, humid dryer exhaust into the basement? (Obviously, I would need to address the lint issue, but stay with me…) My thought is that this would provide ‘better’ air for the heat pump, and the heat pump would cool and dehumidify the basement.“I know going in that this is probably a terrible idea,” he continues, “but figured I’d ask just in case. … I’m guessing the air is way too wet to be properly dehumidified by the heat pump, and I’m asking for mold and general dampness problems.” Try a heat-pump clothes dryerInstead, Holladay suggests, consider either a heat-pump clothes dryer or a condensing dryer, neither of which have to be vented to the outside.Several other GBA readers agree that a heat-pump clothes dryer is the best solution. Both Whirlpool and LG make them, says Charlie Sullivan, although the LG version is designed to be vented.“The Whirlpool will put some heat into the room it’s in, though not nearly as much as a conventional dryer would if it were vented directly into the room,” Sullivan says. “So you can feel good about that heat being later used by the water heater. The Whirlpool doesn’t put any humidity into the room. Overall, that’s good. The water heater might be slightly more efficient in high humidity but the other risks introduced by the high humidity aren’t worth it.”Venting a conventional clothes dryer into the basement might work on a temporary basis, he continues, as long as Culik tracks humidity levels and does most of his drying outside.“As Martin notes, the dryer operation is unlikely to coincide with the water heater operation, so there is no reason to try to duct the dryer output through the heat pump, especially considering the lint problems,” he says. “But if you simply direct the heat into the space, the space can store some heat and humidity until the water heater later pulls that back out of the space. There are many products designed to catch the lint for dryers vented indoors.“I do want to reiterate that venting a dryer indoors is generally a very bad idea, and I would only consider that if you monitor the humidity.”center_img Heat-Pump Clothes DryersEnergy-Saving Clothes Dryers Hit U.S. MarketsRelative Humidity Doesn’t Tell You How Humid the Air IsAlternatives to Clothes DryersHeat-Pump Water Heaters Come of AgeMoisture Sources, Relative Humidity, and Mold Lint is potentially a big problemThere are at least two reasons not to try this, says GBA senior editor Martin Holladay.“The lint problem is insoluble,” he says. “And damp lint sticks to everything (with the potential of gumming up the heat pump water heater compressor).”Second, there’s no guarantee the water heater and the clothes dryer would be operating at the same time.Even if Culik were to install a filter, Holladay says, small particles of lint are likely to escape. If the dryer is vented to the outside, that doesn’t make much difference. When the exhaust is indoors, however, those small lint particles can cause problems.Lint particles can be quite small, adds Steve Knapp. “I couldn’t find a document that directly addressed this issue, but a couple of sources suggested that cotton dust particles can be from 3 to 100 microns in size (that is, very small),” Knapp writes. “One article noted that dryer filters are designed to catch large particles since most machines vent to the outside.”One company, Fridge Filters, recommends a minimum of a MERV 8 filter for lint, Knapp says, adding, “I guess my concern is that indoor air quality is already an issue in most homes, and introducing more pollutants is probably going to further degrade conditions.”(MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Report Value. A MERV 8 filter is capable of trapping particles as small as 3 microns, according to Fridge.) The higher the MERV, the better the filter performs.But as Holladay points, out, there’s a downside to ever-increasing filter efficiency. “One more factor to consider: the better the filter, the higher the static pressure,” he says. “If you install a high-performance filter, the clothes dryer fan may be so restricted by the filter that the air flow in cfm drops considerably, lengthening drying times and potentially violating the terms of the dryer warranty.” Our expert’s opinionHere’s what GBA technical director Peter Yost had to add:I am going to take this in a slightly different direction: line-drying. I just hate to dry our clothes in the dryer; doing so makes me feel hygrothermally ridiculous and defeated.In the summer, we line-dry about 90% of the time (with the other 10% being driven by loads that simply cannot be timed to the weather). Line-drying is free and easy, and clothes smell and feel better coming off the line than they do out of a dryer.Our clothes lines are on the south side of our house. They get good sun and are relatively private.In the winter, I still line-dry outdoors, as long as the lines are accessible. I get adequate drying in the winter, and just air them in the dryer to fluff them. But I still need access to the clothes dryer. When the outdoor lines can be reached, I do line-dry clothes in the basement. What happens? I decided to run the numbers on just how much moisture is added to basement air.I started by weighing a bunch of our loads of wash just after they came out of the horizontal-axis clothes washer and then when they were dry. The average weight difference was 4 pounds, representing the weight of water in the washed but not dried load.The chart below shows what would happen to the interior relative humidity under typical winter interior conditions in our basement when you add up to 4 pounds of water to the basement air. These data indicate that when I line-dry a typical load of clothes and dump 4 pounds of water into the basement air, I raise the interior relative humidity from a starting 30% to a resulting 80%. Totally unacceptable.last_img read more

What is IoT’s disruptive role in the rise of sustaintech?

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Follow the Puck Environmental technology is breaking out of its shell and transforming into what is becoming today’s new buzzword: sustaintech, a combination of cleantech and smarttech. What does the emergence of sustaintech mean? It signals that we are witnessing how disruptive innovations are breaking down the long-standing status quo of sustainability originating from the cleantech sector. Essentially, the crossing point between sustainability and IoT is bringing disruptive technologies to the table, and this new megatrend is turning both investors’ and entrepreneurs’ heads.    The evolution of the sustaintech marketSustaintech, short for sustainable technology, is technology that provides environmental and social value and helps advance a better future for humanity. It leverages intelligent technology and has a high degree of internet-integration to reduce environmental impact and enhance efficiency and resource productivity.See also: Can IoT turn back climate change?Over the past 20 years, the sustainability market has gone through three phases — envirotech, cleantech and sustaintech. The first stage, envirotech, saw companies focus on sectors like environmental protection, which is policy-driven, CAPEX-intensive, and relies on rapid growth to achieve better economies of scale. The second stage is when innovation took over as a driver, producing high-value and CAPEX-efficient companies — cleantech. The third and current stage, sustaintech, is demand-driven, with disruptive innovation in both technology and business model. I believe that the focus on sustainability would precipitate a fundamental paradigm shift in human activity and create the greatest economic opportunity of our time.The disruption: IoT in sustainabilityOne of the most important trends reshaping sustainability around the world is IoT. The breakthroughs achieved in the IoT sector are groundbreaking — by 2020, approximately 20.8 billion connected devices will be used worldwide. Consumer, cross-industry business segments, and vertical-specific business segments have been seeing the largest volume of IoT growth. IoT’s dramatic growth rate signals just how much it can reframe the sustaintech industry and generate investment potential for technology firms around the world.Thanks to the broad application of IoT technology, sustaintech is beginning to make a true impact on our environment. IoT technology can enhance efficiency and resource productivity, helping create cleaner and better ways of producing and living. Just look at companies like Sensoro, IntelliCommand, Retroficiency, EnOcean, and Phillips Hue, who are providing or have integrated IoT sensors into buildings and on highways, along with energy management software systems, to better control energy usage. We’re also seeing IoT technology transforming our cities into “smart” cities. As of July 2014, 50 million residential smart meters had been installed in the United States, covering 43 percent of all homes. Even water pipes are now “smart.” AquamatiX, for example, has developed sensors that regulate water pumping by monitoring water flow to reduce leakage and energy consumption. Exciting investment potential lies aheadI believe the sustainability industry is at an inflection point and that its best years are ahead. And, thanks to IoT, there are many exciting investment opportunities in all things “smart”— smart homes, smart cities, smart buildings, smart cars and so much more. The opportunities are almost endless. The increased focus on sustainable technology and application of IoT technologies has been rallying major investors like Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, and IBM. Samsung, one of the most committed IoT investors, has invested $13 billion in sensor technologies and systems. With the investor pool spanning from investment banks, venture capitalists, and private equity firms to government entities, sustainability-related investments grew from $180 million in 2006 to $625 million in 2015.So, what do these booming IoT investments mean for entrepreneurs and investors? It signals that development and investment should go hand-in-hand. Key investments are being made now.  Monitoring and tracking applications, for example, attracted more than $2 billion in investment across all sensor applications. And as disruptions continuously transform the sustainability sector, new investment opportunities will emerge as well. Sustaintech is not just for VCs — it is also for government organizations, investment banks, and corporations who want to step in and give back to the environment. For the last 17 years, we at Tsing Capital have dedicated ourselves to sustainable technology, investing with the philosophy of “doing well by doing good.” Ready for the road to sustainability?
