11 Jul 2014 England’s Annabel selected for Youth Olympics England’s Annabel Dimmock has been selected to represent Team GB at the second Summer Youth Olympic Games from 16th-28th August in Nanjing, China. The 17-year-old Curtis Cup player will be joined by Scottish golfer, Robert MacIntyre, and their team leader will be Rebecca Wood, the England Golf women’s Performance Manager. “It is huge for golf to be part of Nanjing,” said Rebecca. “It is going to be an amazing experience for these young athletes to compete at world level in the biggest multi-sport event for their age group. “I know both of the athletes are really honoured to have the opportunity to be part of the Olympic experience and I’m sure they’ll go back and inspire future athletes to want to pull on the Team GB kit and compete at the Olympics.” Golf will return to the Olympics at Rio 2016 for the first time since 1900 when British golfers won silver and bronze medals. Annabel, 17, from Wentworth (Image © Leaderboard Photography), is ranked in the world’s 30 amateurs and represented GB&I in this summer’s Curtis Cup match. Earlier this season she won the Helen Holm Scottish open stroke play title and the matchplay Jones Doherty Cup in the USA. She was runner-up in the Welsh open stroke play, the South Atlantic ladies’ amateur and the Spanish amateur. Team GB for the Youth Olympics consists of 33 athletes aged 15-18 years old who will compete across 14 sports at Nanjing 2014. They will test themselves against around 3600 of the finest young sportspeople from more than 200 other nations around the world. All 28 summer Olympic sports will feature across over 220 events in Nanjing. In addition, a Culture and Education Programme (CEP) will aim to develop the young athletes as individuals and teach them about the values of the Olympic Movement.

OAKLAND — Who knows how many times the Curry brothers imagined a moment like this when they were playing one-on-one in the driveway.Perhaps the scenario at hand would have been too surreal for even the wildest of childhood imaginations.With the Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers squaring off in the Western Conference Finals, starting Tuesday night at Oracle Arena, the Currys — Stephen and his younger brother by two-and-a-half-years, Blazers guard Seth — will become the first two brothers to …
[Editor’s note: Roger and Lynn Normand are building a [no-glossary]Passivhaus[/no-glossary] in Maine. This is the 21st article in a series that will follow their project from planning through construction.] After kicking the tires on the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) results obtained by the Passive House Academy (PHA) on EdgewaterHaus, we have decided to make one design change that, if acceptable to PHA, will save us money and still allow us to comfortably meet the annual heat demand limit set by PHPP.In a northern climate like Maine, the challenge in meeting the Passivhaus standard lies in achieving the exceptionally low annual heat demand (AHD) of 4.75 kBTU/(ft2•yr). As my previous blog noted, EdgewaterHaus design had an annual heat demand of 3.97 kBTU/(ft2•yr) and earned a Passive House Design Stage Assurance.

The EPS foam has already been orderedAnd then a complication. Four-inch-thick EPS foam is not a commonly stocked item. To prepare for the start of construction, our builder Caleb Johnson Architects had already ordered the material and its delivery was imminent; according to the supplier, it was too late to modify the order. They would not accept a return. We owned the EPS.How disappointing: after over 1 1/2 years in the design phase of our project, we still could not make all the necessary material decisions in time!Perhaps we could use the 4-inch-thick EPS to substitute for some of the Roxul. From a thermal perspective, that would work. Marc cautioned us to keep the EPS well below grade, because it tends to harbor ants. (Our EPS destined for use well below grade is not treated with an insecticide.) Maybe we can install thinner foamThe first place to look at reducing the cost of the building envelope was the 12 inches of EPS foam insulation below the basement slab, or perhaps some of the Roxul Drainboard insulation outside of the ICF foundation. Both are more expensive than the cellulose insulation used to fill the above-grade wall cavities and blown into the attic, and provide less real insulating benefit. RELATED ARTICLES The Roxul and EPS are installed below grade, where the soil moderates temperature extremes, and wind is not an added burden. Because both are installed as the outermost layer of the building envelope, either could be reduced without significantly affecting the design of the house. And since heat rises and cold falls, common sense suggests that any reduction in insulation happen below ground.The 12 inches of EPS foam was to be installed in 3 layers of 4-inch-thick foam, with taped seams. The foam comes in 4 foot by 8 foot sheets. The EPS costs about $60 per sheet plus tax, tape, and labor. There are some 70 sheets per layer.Our energy analyst Marc Rosenbaum calculated that going from 12 inches of EPS foam down to 8 inches would raise our AHD from 3.97 to 4.35 kBTU/(ft2•yr), still comfortably below the 4.75 kBTU/(ft2•yr) ceiling.So, let’s eliminate one of the three layers of EPS. If you want that type of Roxul, you have to buy a palletAnother complication: the planned 2 3/8-inch-thick Roxul Drainboard is also not commonly stocked, and unlike the 1-inch-thick version, only comes in pallet-sized quantities. We would also have to match exterior material thicknesses.Then our architect Chris Briley learned that we may be able to purchase some surplus 2 3/8 inch Roxul retained by another nearby contractor — price to be determined. Chris has drafted a revised drawing showing the reduced amount of Roxul, the EPS topped with flashing to prevent water from the above drainboard to flow between the EPS and the ICF, and the change to only 8 inches of EPS beneath the slab.Before we implement this design change, Chris has submitted the revised drawing to PHA. We want PHA to confirm that we still meet the Passivhaus annual heat demand limit, and still retain the Passive House Design Stage Assurance. We expect a quick response from PHA, as excavation is imminent. The first article in this series was Kicking the Tires on a Passivhaus Project. Roger Normand’s construction blog is called EdgewaterHaus.

NEW ORLEANS, LA – JANUARY 01: Alabama Crimson Tide fans react in the second half of the AllState Sugar Bowl against the Clemson Tigers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 1, 2018 in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)If you’re a college football fan – or, really, anyone who is not a coach – and you’re thinking about contacting a recruit, just stop. Don’t do it. Whether you’re simply trying to encourage a recruit to come to your school or berating a prospect for committing elsewhere, you’re 99 percent of the time going to come off in ill form to the 17-or-18-year-old high schooler. The following Alabama fan is someone who, unfortunately, does not follow the advice previously stated. This person somehow got the phone number of four-star linebacker Darrell Williams, an Auburn commit, and proceeded to text him about the Crimson Tide. We realize you’re passionate about your college football teams, people, and that’s why we love you, but please, don’t ever text a recruit.

KENTVILLE, N.S. – A Nova Scotia court martial heard contrasting views from witnesses Monday on whether a white reservist’s use of the word “nappy” to describe a black co-worker’s hair was intended as a racial slur.Cpl. Garett Rollman pleaded not guilty Monday to a charge of striking his superior officer on the hand and two charges of “conduct to the prejudice of good order and discipline.”Prosecutors said Rollman made an inappropriate comment to civilian worker Cheryl Richard about black hair styles in a kitchen at the military base in Aldershot, N.S., in late February 2016.Richard said Monday her co-worker told her about a video that he’d viewed where a black woman was sponging her hair due to it being “nappy.”“I said, ‘Excuse me,’ and he said, ‘Nappy hair, you know like yours,’” she said, adding she immediately left the area, upset by the comment.Richard testified the term is “a racial slur they used a long time ago saying that black people have knotty hair because they didn’t have the means of working with their hair. It’s a racial slur that white people use.”However, Sgt. Christopher Jones, the senior non-commissioned officer in the unit, testified that as a black man and a supervisor of the two workers, he didn’t believe that Rollman was using the term as a slur.Jones said he believed Rollman had been explaining in a pleasant way that he and his black girlfriend had been watching a program about hair styles, and Rollman may not have understood Richard was offended by his description of what he saw.“He was trying to explain something nice … because nappy hair means style,” Jones testified, adding the term can have various meanings in different contexts.He said that Richard had a long-standing conflict with Rollman, to the point where the two were assigned to work on separate shifts for several years, and he testified Richard had taken the opportunity to “go after him (Rollman).”The prosecution alleged that the following day Rollman was standing near Richard when he pushed a garbage container across the kitchen and shouted insults and profanities at her.Richard testified she went from the kitchen area to a room where Sgt. Earl Smith — the second in command of the area — was sitting and told him about the incident.The prosecution alleges that Smith stood up, and “Cpl. Rollman hit the sergeant’s hand out of the way and took up a boxer’s stance,” before more yelling ensued and Rollman left Smith’s office.Sharon Angel, another civilian employee, testified Monday she witnessed Rollman and Smith yelling, and she saw Rollman raise his hand.She said she heard Smith yell, “Don’t you hit me!” but she couldn’t see if Rollman actually struck his superior.Capt. Greg Moorehead, the military prosecutor, told the court during his opening statement that Rollman’s behaviour breached military law.“None of this behaviour is acceptable, your honour, particularly in a disciplined and professional military,” he said.During defence cross examination, Richard told the court that she had “sometimes” complained about Rollman’s behaviour in the past, and confirmed he had launched a workplace harassment complaint against her prior to the incident.During opening statements, military defence lawyer Lt.-Cmdr. Brent Walden had asked for the case to be adjourned. He said the court needed time to find Smith, who has left the military and hasn’t responded to emails from the prosecution requesting his presence.The presiding military judge ruled that the case could proceed, noting a week has been set aside for the case.However, she also took note of the defence’s concerns over the absence of a key witness in the case.Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.
