Conte hails Luiz and hints duo could return at Burnley

first_imgDavid Luiz has been described as a “warrior” by Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.The Brazilian centre-back has maintained his ever-present run in the side since rejoining the club, despite carrying a knee injury of late.And Conte expects Luiz to put on the battle armour once again when the Blues travel to Burnley on Sunday.“He’s fit. He’s playing with a little pain in his knee but he’s a warrior and I think he’s playing very well.“I’m pleased for him. He’s showing me great attitude, and a great will to continue to fight despite sometimes having a bit of pain.”Conte also said Willian and Cesc Fabregas could come into the side at Turf Moor.He said: “There is this possibility because we are talking about two great players in good form.“To have, in this moment, Cesc and Willian on the bench or on the pitch is very important.“Pedro is playing very well, he’s in great form. Cesc is playing very well when he plays, and also when I call him to come on.“I have different solutions, for sure, but for me the most important thing is I can count on the squad and every single player is in good form.”   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Is this end of the Warriors’ dynasty? Steve Kerr says ‘no’

first_imgOAKLAND – At this point, the Warriors can barely think.Warriors coach Steve Kerr has struggled processing that their failed championship run coincided with losing Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson to debilitating injuries. Warriors general manager Bob Myers struggled to comprehend that the NBA Draft starts on Thursday, exactly a week after the Warriors lost to the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals in their final game at Oracle Arena.So, Kerr and Myers could use this weekend to …last_img read more

BART Promos on Foursquare: Free Tickets for Check-Ins

first_imgdana oshiro Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting For once the Bay Area Rapid Transit service has more to brag about than its endless supply of used under-the-seat bubble gum and noxious mystery smells. According to its site, Bay Area Rapid Transit will be the first transit agency to partner with location-based game sensation Foursquare. ReadWriteWeb first covered the point-based check-in service in March, and since then Foursquare has spread like wildfire across the US and to the UK. As of next month, users from Dublin to Milbrae will have a chance to win the coveted title of Mayor of one of the most utilized transit services in the Bay Area. From November onward, the transit authority will award $25 promotional tickets to random users who check-in at one of 34 BART stations. During the three month pilot program, the agency will also look for new ways to reward Foursquare mayors and incorporate local discounts from mybart.org venue partners. Said BART website manager Timothy Moore, “We hope this partnership will encourage users to check out different stations and neighborhoods, and will show people who aren’t already BART riders some of the great things to do that are easy to get to on transit.” Despite the fact that a number of BART-related Foursquare tips are going to document urine stains and public drunkenness, the reality is that absolutely anything beats driving the US-101 during rush hour traffic. BART check-ins are likely to encourage tired drivers to get out of their car and into a greener and less frustrating alternative.

Window Performance 4 — Dealing with Edge Losses

first_imgAlex is founder of BuildingGreen, Inc. and executive editor of Environmental Building News. Watch for a forthcoming BuildingGreen special report on windows. To keep up with his latest articles and musings, you can sign up for his Twitter feed. The problem with aluminum is that it’s highly conductive, readily transferring heat from the warm inner pane of glass to the cold outer pane. Because of this heat loss, the inner pane of glass often cools off enough that water vapor from the indoor air condenses on it — and you get droplets of water forming on the inside of the window. If you have wood windows, that condensate often wets the wood, causing staining or even rot.We indicate risk of condensation forming on a window using a standardized measure from the National Fenestration Rating Council, “Condensation Resistance.” This is expressed as a number between 1 and 100, with higher numbers indicating greater resistance to condensation.So, what to do about it? Manufacturers have worked hard over the past several decades to deal with the problem. Here are the primary options:Stainless steelStainless steel is just 1/15th as conductive as aluminum. Furthermore, stainless steel is a lot stronger, so glazing spacers made out of stainless steel can have thinner walls. Conductivity is proportional to the cross-sectional area of the material through which heat is flowing, so stainless steel glazing spacers are better for two reasons: lower conductivity and thinner walls. Indeed, stainless steel is rapidly displacing aluminum as the leading glazing spacer material.Butyl rubberButyl rubber is a great sealant because it sticks really well to glass and other materials, and it’s also a good insulator. Rubber is 120 times less conductive than stainless steel and 1900 times less conductive than aluminum. To work as a glazing spacer, a thin reinforcing metal strip is often used to maintain the proper thickness. The strip of metal increases the conductivity (though the metal never contacts the glass); the spacer’s conductivity remains a lot lower than an all-metal spacer. A desiccant is incorporated into the butyl rubber.Swiggle Seal, the first so-called “warm-edge spacer,” was introduced in 1979. The name refers to the thin ribbon of metal reinforcement that is in a wavy shape. While the edge of an IGU with low-e2 and a standard aluminum spacer has a condensation resistance of 19.3, according to testing done by Enermodal Engineering, with butyl rubber and a metal strip that condensation resistance improves to about 38. Swiggle Seal is manufactured by TruSeal, which is now owned by Quanex Building Products Corporation. While still found in some products, the success of stainless steel spacers has dampened the market for butyl rubber spacers in recent years.Silicone foamThe least conductive glazing spacers are made of silicone foam. These inorganic foams don’t soften as much as butyl rubber and lose their shape, so they don’t require strips of metal reinforcement. Like the butyl rubber spacers, a desiccant is formulated into the silicone foam.The dominant product on the market employing this technology is the Super Spacer, made by Edgetech in Cambridge, Ohio (which is now also owned by Quanex. Super Spacer is made of silicone foam with no metal reinforcement. Several additional layers are added to make the foam impervious to vapor — both to keep water vapor from getting in and to keep any low-conductivity gas fill, such as argon, from escaping. The condensation resistance of the above-described IGU with this glazing spacer is 44.9.Bottom lineAlong with minimizing the risk of condensation at the edges of windows, warm-edge spacers will improve the overall unit U-factor of a typical residential, double-glazed window by about U-0.02 Btu/hr·ft2·°F. For example, if the unit U-factor with standard aluminum spacers would be 0.30, the warm-edge spacers would reduce that to 0.28. That improvement (reduction in heat flow) might sound modest, but it adds up! Over the last three weeks I’ve focused on the major strategies for improving the energy performance of windows: adding extra layers of glass, increasing the thickness of the airspace between the layers of glass, adding low-emissivity coatings, and replacing air with a low-conductivity gas fill. These strategies all help to reduce heat flow through an insulating glass unit (IGU), and if we do a really good job with these strategies we can achieve center-of-glass R-values of R-5 or higher.But these measures don’t do much to improve the energy performance at the edges of an IGU.In the olden days, when windows were single-glazed and wood-framed, the window sashes insulated better than the glass. With the air films on both sides, an inch-thick wooden window sash provides about R-2, while a single layer of glass provides just half that. When we switched to double glazing, the glass and wooden sash insulated about equally.With the advent of low-e coatings and low-conductivity gas fills, though, the glazing itself became better insulating than the frames and edges of the glass. All of a sudden, instead of the glass being the weak point, in terms of heat loss, the glass became better-insulating than the edges of the windows. A significant culprit of that window-edge heat loss is the heat-conducting glazing spacer that holds the two pieces of glass apart.Better glazing spacersUntil recently most glazing spacers were made of hollow aluminum channel. Aluminum is an easy material for manufacturers to work with, and the cavity formed by the channel allows a desiccant to be added that adsorbs any water vapor that gets into the insulating glass unit (IGU) during manufacture.

Somehow Google Got Really Good At Design. How’d That Happen?

first_imgWhat it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … People are buzzing about a supposedly leaked video (below) that supposedly shows the Chromebook Pixel, a touch-screen laptop supposedly designed by Google. It’s gorgeous. And coming on the heels of the Nexus 4 smartphone, and the very slick work that Google did with Jelly Bean, this product furthers the impression that Google has started to get really good at design, as some people have been noticing lately. TechCrunch has the whole story of where the video might have come from and how it made its way accidentally onto YouTube. It’s not worth repeating other than to say that there’s a company in Mountain View, Calif., that seems to be run by a former Google engineer and maybe makes videos for Google, and apparently they got hacked and this video got leaked. Who knows and who cares. Our own Jon Mitchell believes it’s a real product, and he’s a leading authority on Google. Check out the video of a world “where all your things are always wherever you are, and your computer actually gets better over time.” If this thing is for real, I want one.  The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img Tags:#Chrome#Chromebook#Google dan lyons Related Posts last_img read more

Indian shooters looking to dominate

first_imgAn Olympic gold medallist, a world champion and multiple World Cup medal winners are among India’s 28-member shooting squad for the Commonwealth Games. That should give India a bagful of medals.Indian shooter Abhinav Bindra.Abhinav Bindra’s historic gold at the Beijing Olympics four years ago gave Indian shooters a shot in the arm. Today they are a force to reckon with at international competitions.Besides Bindra, the number of top-class shooters from the country is equally impressive-Gagan Narang, Ronjan Sodhi, Manavjit Singh Sandhu, Samaresh Jung and the latest sensation and India’s first woman world champion, Tejaswini Sawant.Indian shooters have been a dominant force at the Games. In the 2006 Games, they won 27 medals, including 16 gold-comprising a large chunk of India’s overall tally of 50. Pistol shooter Jung, with five gold, was adjudged the best athlete.The firepower of the shooting squad is such that it can even do without defending champion Rathore, who skipped the last day’s trials held two weeks ago, and newly crowned Arjuna Award winner Sanjeev Rajput. Both have been dropped from the squad. Rathore’s berth went to junior World Champion Asher Noria.The National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) has put more emphasis on international competitions than spending time in unhelpful conditions in camps, starting with the Commonwealth Shooting Championships in February. Then there has been a series of World Cups ending with the World Championship in Munich.With medals coming in each and every international event, chief coach Sunny Thomas feels that Indians will dominate the shooting event at the New Delhi Games.advertisementlast_img read more

Former tennis star Boris Becker drops immunity claim

first_imgLONDON — Retired German tennis star Boris Becker has dropped his claim to have diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in Britain.The three-time Wimbledon champion had been claiming that his unpaid role as a sports attache for Central African Republic gave him immunity from bankruptcy rulings.His lawyers argued in June that his work on sporting, cultural and humanitarian affairs meant he was covered by a 1961 convention on diplomatic relations. That assertion was abandoned Monday.Becker was declared bankrupt in June 2017. He is selling some of his memorabilia including Wimbledon trophies to try to lower his debts.The Associated Presslast_img read more
