  • A Contemporary Passivhaus Design in Seattle

    first_imgClean interior detailsThe house has uncluttered lines and is finished in a variety of materials. On the ground floor, the finished flooring is the concrete slab. On the upper two levels, bamboo is the finish flooring. An ash tree taken from the site during construction was milled into lumber, kiln dried, and used around the house — in the stairwell, for example, and as the vanity countertop in a bathroom.Outside, the house is finished in a combination of corrugated metal, cedar, and a fiber-cement siding called Silibonit.Ritchie says he built the house for about $200 a square foot. A Seattle builder and architectural firm have collaborated on a contemporary, three-story home that’s won Passivhaus certification, the first in Seattle to do so.The house, nicknamed “Park Passive,” is the work of Cascade Built and NK Architects. It is located in Seattle’s Madison Park neighborhood. (The home is mentioned in an August 15, 2013 New York Times article, “The Passive House: Sealed for Freshness.”)Cascade Built founder Sloan Ritchie says he’s undertaken a variety of single- and multi-family projects in the past, including some built to LEED standards, but nothing to date that performed at this level of energy efficiency. He and his family moved in this spring.“We certainly believe in the concept and believe in the energy efficiency and energy savings,” he said by phone. “We feel it’s very important, so we’re interested in doing more of this type of project for sure.”(Dwell Development announced back in March it had built what it thought was Seattle’s first spec Passivhaus project. As of July 25, the house had not been certified, although the developer says the paperwork is being processed by the Passive House Institute U.S. Cascade Built’s project was certified by an Irish company, Passive House Academy, following the protocols of the Passivhaus Institut, the European counterpart of PHIUS. Two earlier Passivhaus projects in Seattle — Joe Giampietro’s Mini-B cottage and Dan Whitmore’s duplex, both described in a 2011 blog by GBA senior editor Martin Holladay — have not been certified.) A contemporary design on an infill lotNK Architects designed a striking contemporary building that’s clad in corrugated metal and capped with a rooftop deck. Completed in April, the 2,710-square-foot house, has four bedrooms and three bathrooms on three levels.Some of the construction details provided by Ritchie for the slab-on-grade structure:There is plenty of sub-slab insulation: 8 inches of high-density EPS foam under the footings, and another 20 inches of medium-density EPS under the slab itself. The total of 28 inches of foam under the slab has an R-value of about 100. (Most of the rigid foam installed under the slab is acting as fill to raise the grade; the foam isn’t necessary to meet the home’s Passivhaus goals.) The 8-inch layer of foam beneath the footings continues up the outside of the stem walls to connect with exterior wall insulation.Exterior walls consist of a 2×6 structural wall, an OSB air barrier, and 9 1/2-in. deep I-joists with about 15 in. of blown-in fiberglass insulation, for an R-value of about 60.Roof insulation, a combination of 24 inches or more of blown-in fiberglass plus 4 inches of polyisocyanurate, has an R-value of about 100.An initial blower-door test, before windows or drywall had been installed, came in at 0.4 air changes per hour at a pressure difference of 50 pascals. A later test, after windows went in, was 0.5 ach50.Whole house ventilation is provided by a Zehnder Comfoair 350 heat recovery ventilator. Domestic hot water is provided by an AirGenerate AirTap heat pump water heater. The windows were manufactured by Intus.When it came to heating and cooling, Ritchie chose a ducted minisplit with a single outdoor compressor and a single indoor fan unit that distributes air via six individual grills. He initially considered a ductless minisplit with a single head, but was stymied by what he thought would be uneven air distribution.“We thought, OK, we could do one indoor unit, one wall-mounted unit, but where would we put it where it could effectively temper the air in the house?” Ritchie said. “We couldn’t really decide where to put it so we realized we just needed to have one where we could get air to multiple locations.”last_img read more

  • Arijit Shashwat sent to 14-day judicial custody in Bhagalpur communal clash case

    first_img However, leaders of the BJP’s ruling alliance, JD(U), said that “the law will take its own course and nobody will be spared”.Significantly, after the Bhagalpur communal clashes such incidents flared up in at least six districts of Bihar including Samastipur, Aurangabad, Nawada, Nalanda, Munger and Sasaram.The Opposition party leader Tejaswi Yadav blamed the BJP for fomenting communal tension in different parts of the State as “part of their larger design to polarize voters in the run up to the 2019 general elections” but on Saturday, Mr. Choubey accused RJD and Congress for “trying to flare up riots in Bihar” and also said that the NDA governments at the Centre and in the State would take stern action against such attempts.“We will defeat the intention of the RJD and Congress to instigate riots. The conspirators wanted to cause riots, but no one dared to do so and we have kept Bihar under control. The Bihar government and the Centre will together defeat the attempts to disturb harmony in the State”, said Mr. Choubey. BJP worker booked for Aurangabad clashes escapes from police custody  Earlier in the day, local court of Additional District and Session judge (IV) Kumud Ranjan Singh in Bhagalpur had rejected the anticipatory bail plea of Mr. Shashwat. On March 26, Mr. Shashwat had moved an anticipatory bail application against an arrest warrant issued against him by a local court. The warrant was also issued against eight others in a communal clash case lodged against them at Nathnagar police station on March 17.Mr. Shashwat was allegedly leading a rally of saffron clad youths when violence had erupted in the communally sensitive locality of Nathnagar after people belonging to a minority community objected to loud music being played during the rally.Several people, including some policemen ,were injured in the clash while several shops and vehicles were set on fire.Later, Mr. Shashwat while taking shelter in Patna, had said that he would not surrender before the court as he had done nothing wrong.’FIR a piece of garbage’His father, defending him, said he was proud of his son.“The FIR filed against my son is nothing but a piece of garbage which was registered by corrupt officers of the area…my son has made no mistake…is chanting Bharat Mata ki Jai and Vande Mataram is a crime in the country?”, asked Mr. Choubey.The State BJP leaders too came in defense of Mr. Shashwat and said he had done nothing wrong. “Since he has gone to Court why should he be arrested and blamed for the clash?”, asked the Bihar BJP leaders.Also Read Communal flare-up in Bihar Hours after a local court in Bhagalpur rejected his anticipatory bail in a communal clash case, Arijit Shashwat, son of BJP MP and Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Ashwini Choubey, surrendered before Patna police on Saturday midnight. He has been sent to judicial custody for 14 days.Mr. Shashwat reached the Hanuman temple near Patna railway station at midnight on Saturday along with over a dozen supporters and surrendered before the police, led by Additional Superintendent of Police Rakesh Dubey.His supporters were chanting slogans like Bharat Mata ki Jai, Jai Shri Ram and Vande Mataram. “I’d not fled anywhere…I was here and had gone to the Court,” Mr. Shashwat said. “I’ve been falsely implicated in the case…I’m a political person…if chanting slogans like Jai Shri Ram and Bharat Mata ki Jai are a crime in this country, then I’m a criminal”, added Mr. Shashwat.Also Readlast_img read more

  • Spieth falls further from the lead at the Australian Open

    first_imgAt least he birdied the ninth — his last hole Friday. Finishing on even-par would have left him just one stroke away from the projected cut, which could have changed based on afternoon scoring.“That was only my second one-putt of the day,” Spieth said. “The other was for par.” First-round leader Cameron Davis, who led by two strokes after a 63, had an afternoon start, as did Jason Day, who trailed Davis by three shots.Spieth, who hasn’t played since the Presidents Cup in late September, has won the Australian Open two out of the last three years and finished second the other time.FEATURED 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 shutoutAt least his morning start Saturday means he will avoid the windy conditions that the leading groups will have to contend with at The Australian in the afternoon.And that left him optimistic of a comeback.

On the par-4 sixth — his 15th of the day — his drive traveled well over 300 meters, so far that it reached a spectator crossing area that officials obviously felt was far enough from the tee.Spieth took a drop from it, but his approach to the green failed to spin back, leaving him a putt of at least 20 feet. He missed his birdie attempt.“It’s just been the short game rust that’s kind of hurt me a bit the last couple of days that prevents me from being 5 or so under,” Spieth said.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

  • Extraordinary expectations awaiting Ohio State football

    It’s hard to imagine there being more hype surrounding the Ohio State football program than there is right now. Coming off an undefeated season in 2012, the expectations for the 2013 Buckeyes are to be better than they were a year prior. Nearly all of the ridiculously early preseason polls have OSU ranked somewhere in the top five. Braxton Miller – who appeared on this week’s cover of “Sports Illustrated” – is one of the favorites to win the Heisman trophy, despite being on the list with last year’s winner, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Anything short of an undefeated regular season, a victory in the Big Ten championship and an appearance in the National Championship game will likely be construed as a failure for Urban Meyer and his squad this year. Perfection, after achieving it in 2012, is the goal for OSU in Meyer’s second season at the helm of the program. It’s March, though, and no one – not even juggernaut Alabama – is perfect right now. There are plenty of questions that OSU will start trying to answer come Tuesday, the first day of spring practice. Here are five: 1. Is OSU still angry? With the 2012 Buckeyes ineligible for the postseason, Meyer chose to motivate his players last season by telling them to take their fury out on the teams OSU faced. “You’re an angry football team. You’re a hungry football team,” Meyer was heard saying on “ESPN All-Access: Ohio State Training Days” last August. This season, though, Meyer, will have to go about getting his team focused and motivated differently than he did a year ago. Is the drive for a national championship better inspiration than the rage and “shock the world” mentality the Buckeyes had on way to a 12-0 season in 2012? 2. How much better will Braxton Miller be? Like the team itself, it will be hard for Miller to be much better than he was in 2012. The then-sophomore quarterback broke OSU’s total yards record for a season and was the Big Ten’s offensive player of the year. Miller and his coach, however, see plenty of room for improvement. Fundamentals and footwork are the key for the rising junior, Meyer and Miller both have said. “If he becomes fundamentally the best quarterback in America, I think he will be the best quarterback in America. I think it’ll be comical what he’ll do,” Meyer said. “But he’s not there yet.” How much closer has Miller gotten to getting there? 3. Who are the leaders? Meyer called the 2012 senior class one of his favorite groups of players he’s ever coached. Along with being close to Meyer’s heart, they were the most important leaders of the team. Without the leadership of John Simon, Zach Boren and co., OSU wouldn’t have achieved anything close to an undefeated year last season, Meyer said. Who will fill that role this season? Rising redshirt senior Jordan Hall was a captain in 2012 despite being injured for most of the year, and Meyer has said he’ll be a captain again. Apart from the speedy playmaker, Miller, rising redshirt junior cornerback Bradley Roby and junior linebacker Ryan Shazier are likely candidates for captaincy. 4. Who’s Miller going to get the ball to? OSU gained 5,085 yards of offense in 2012, and 93 percent of that output is returning. The Buckeyes are only losing 370 yards with the graduation of wide receiver Jake Stoneburner, fullback Boren, punter Ben Buchanan (gained six yards on a fake punt) and the transfer of wide receiver Verlon Reed. Wide receivers Corey “Philly” Brown and Devin Smith, along with tailback Carlos Hyde, were Miller’s favorite targets in 2012. Will that change in 2013? Hall, now healthy, is likely to be featured heavily in the upcoming season’s offense. He’s made the move from running back to the “No. 3” hybrid role made famous by former Florida playmaker Percy Harvin. Meyer brought in a top three recruiting class that featured speedy talent at nearly every skill position. Incoming freshman wide receivers Jalin Marshall, Dontre Wilson, James Clark and Corey Smith, along with running back Ezekiel Elliott, could all see the field come fall. None of those five will be on campus in time for spring ball, though, but come August they could push the upperclassmen. Is Miller excited for the crop of offensive talent OSU will display this season? “Heck yeah,” Miller responded when asked about the situation at an OSU men’s basketball game against Northwestern in February. 5. Will OSU make the jump other programs have in year two of a new system? Meyer is now in his second season at the helm of the OSU football program. In year two at Florida, Meyer won a national championship. So did Jim Tressel in his second year at OSU, as did Bob Stoops in his second season at Oklahoma. Are this season’s Buckeyes capable of winning it all in year two of the Meyer System? We’ll find out in the fall, but if it’s going to happen, we might get glimpses of the possibility starting Tuesday. read more

    first_imgReports coming in suggest that the Italian football club Roma are yet to receive any official offers for Alisson Becker even after reports of interest from Chelsea and Liverpool were reported.For some time now, there have been reports that talks are ongoing for the Brazilian goalkeeper for a big move this summer, after impressing for the Giallorossi last season.However, Sky Italia via Football Italia claims sporting director Monchi has denied every report concerning offers saying they are yet to receive. On the other hand, Il Tempo reports that Liverpool are in pole position ahead of Chelsea as Real Madrid pulls out of the chase to secure the goalkeeper.It also appears like Alisson had found a deal with the Spanish club, so he could well stay in Rome if he can’t go to the Bernabeu.Alisson began his career at Internacional, where he made over 100 appearances and won the Campeonato Gaúcho in each of his four seasons at the club.

  • Ancelotti reflects on narrow Napoli win

    first_imgNapoli manager Carlo Ancelotti says his side is showing signs of maturity after their hard-fought 1-0 victory over SPAL on Saturday.It was an unconvincing performance by Napoli on Saturday after Raul Albiol’s first-half goal, but they managed to see off the game.Ancelotti far from impressed with his side’s performance was however confident there is room for improvement.“The match was not exciting, but personally I’m satisfied with the work we’ve done so far and I am confident that we can do better,” Ancelotti told Football Italia.“We are in line with expectations.

We managed to scrape together wins even when we do not play very well.“Tonight we lacked precision in our passes, even when we had the space for them. Later we were denied that space, and we should have played possession more purposefully, not just for the sake of it.“And now it’s Juventus-Roma. That’s always a good match. The Bianconeri are the favorites because they are in fantastic condition, but anything can happen in football. Let’s say we’re hopeful.”last_img read more
