Police provide holiday baskets

first_imgMONTEBELLO – If it wasn’t for the efforts of the Montebello Police Department, Raquel Sanchez’s four children would have had a sparse Christmas this year. The department’s annual Holiday Basket Program on Thursday donated toys to 35 underprivileged families, handing the gifts out at a special dinner provided by the Montebello Elks Lodge. The Montebello Unified School District refers the families, who include some seniors, single parents and whole families. Having just started a job at Kmart, the 32-year-old Sanchez said she welcomed the chance to take her kids to the free special dinner. After receiving the invitation, Sanchez said her 7-year-old son wrote a thank you note to the Montebello Police Department. “It’s nice because not everybody gets to be invited,” Sanchez said. “I’m so happy to take my kids somewhere special, and I just really appreciate the opportunity. I’m backed up on my bills and it’s so nice to give something extra to my kids. I wouldn’t be able to give them much.” Toys and monetary donations were collected at last week’s “Lunch With The Chief” event, where for a minimum $10 contribution or a new unwrapped toy, participants could attend a lunch with police Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez. After losing her husband four year ago, 53-year-old Pam Ledezma welcomed the chance to mingle at Thursday’s dinner. With no car, she had to take a bus to the Elks Lodge. “It feels really good,” Ledezma said. “It’s hard to explain. I’ve lived in Montebello for 20 years and my husband was a volunteer at the Police Department, but he was disabled and we had some hard times. This dinner will bring up my spirits.” [email protected] (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Using David White’s Global Warming Calculator

first_imgAs in the previous two graphs, the cellulose curve keeps going down. The more you use, the more you decrease the global warming impact. With ccSPF and XPS, however, there’s a minimum and then a rise. For XPS, the sweet spot is at about R-25, so you could add about 2″ for another R-10. For ccSPF, the minimum is about R-40, so you could add 3 to 4 inches for another R-25 or so.To stay below the yellow line, you’d want to limit XPS to about R-25, or 5″. You could go beyond R-60 total with ccSPF, but why would you want to? In my last article, I showed that unless you’re in a really severe climate, you could even achieve Passive House walls with R-50 or less.ConclusionsThis global warming calculator from David White is a useful tool. Rather than trying to calculate payback, it gives you the numbers for global warming impact. You can look at the curves for different insulation types and see where your sweet spot is. One thing I think would make it even better would be if it allowed you to look at the effect of an entire assembly instead of just individual insulation types with a reference R-value.If you download my presentation slides, you’ll see these conclusions:Global warming impact isn’t as simple as it seemedBlanket condemnation of XPS and ccSPF based on payback are not warrantedAvoid XPSUse ccSPF with other blowing agents (that is, blowing agents with a lower global warming potential)Use David White’s calculator for more refined guidance.The big one there is in the middle: Avoid XPS. In terms of global warming impact due to the HFC-134a blowing agent, it’s the worst.It’s also relatively easy to substitute another type of insulation for XPS. On walls, you can use mineral wool or polyisocyanurate. For slabs, you can use expanded polystyrene (EPS) or mineral wool. So just use something else.Manufacturers are tight-lipped about what blowing agents they’re using these days. Some of the spray foam companies have switched over to the next generation blowing agents with much lower global warming potential. I don’t know of XPS manufacturers who have announced changes, but a rep from manufacturer did tell me they’re not using HFC-134a anymore. When I asked what they used, he said, “I can’t tell you that.”In general, all insulation types can help mitigate the effects of climate change. Types with the bad blowing agents, however, have limits to their effectiveness. If you’re planning to use XPS or closed cell spray foam, the tool from David White can help you decide where to draw the line. Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is a speaker, writer, building science consultant, and the author of the Energy Vanguard Blog. You can follow him on Twitter at @EnergyVanguard. I wrote an article in September about the carbon intensity of electricity by state. I posted an expanded version of the article that included carbon intensity by regional interconnect. The state data show a wider range than the regional data, varying from less than 0.1 kilograms of CO2 per kilowatt-hour produced up to about 0.95 kg CO2/kWh. In this analysis, I called the “clean” electricity that which had a carbon intensity of 0.1 kg CO2/kWh and the dirty electricity that with 0.95 kg CO2/kWh.Clearly, the cleaner the electricity, the less you can affect affect global warming emissions by saving energy. In the graph above, notice how low the yellow line is. As the the three insulation curves diverge from the R-14 starting point, only the cellulose makes sense here. (Again, there are a lot of other insulation types that perform similarly to cellulose. I just haven’t shown them here.)Electric heat pump with “dirty” electricityWith dirty electricity, the effectiveness of insulation is much better. The resulting payback showed how long it would take to save enough energy to offset the global warming emissions from the embodied energy in the insulation and from the release of blowing agents with global warming potential (GWP). He looked at several different insulation types and a range of R-values.The first part of my conference presentation covered what I see as the main flaw with his payback calculations. In the second part, I discussed David White’s spreadsheet tool for calculating the global warming impact of insulation. The nice thing about his calculator is that you can change a lot of the variables and see what the effects are.I showed three scenarios in my conference presentation. I’ll put them in a different order here, beginning with the gas furnace. If you download the presentation file, you’ll find the two for heat pumps before the one for the furnace.Gas furnaceThe graph below shows the output from David White’s calculator for the gas furnace. RELATED ARTICLES Revisiting the Debate Over Global Warming and InsulationMore About Global Warming and Insulation The Misleading Numbers Behind the Global Warming Impact of InsulationAvoiding the Global Warming Impact of InsulationCalculating the Global Warming Impact of Insulation New Blowing Agent Addresses Climate Impact of Foam InsulationInsulation to Keep Us Warm — Not Warm the Planetcenter_img Everyone knows about the impact of burning fossil fuels on global warming. Maybe not everyone believes it, but scientists first started focusing attention on increasing carbon dioxide levels way back in 1827. The impact of insulation on global warming, however, is relatively new.About a decade ago, Professor L.D. Danny Harvey started looking at the effect of blowing agents released by the production and use of some foam insulation types. Then Alex Wilson picked it up in 2010.At the 2016 North American Passive House Conference, I presented my views on this topic. I wrote about the first part of my talk in my last GBA article. Today, I cover the part about using David White’s global warming tool for insulation.BackgroundIn his calculations, Alex Wilson chose one scenario. He looked at the global warming impact for a house heated with a natural gas furnace. He chose a cold climate with 5,000 heating degree days (HDD), and he didn’t include cooling. There’s a whole lot going on here, so let me first give you the lay of the land. This tool doesn’t calculate payback. Instead it calculates global warming impact, as measured by the kilograms of carbon dioxide emitted per square foot of wall area per year (kg CO2/sf/yr). That’s on the vertical axis. On the horizontal axis is the total R-value of the assembly. To the right of the graph, I posted a sidebar with the main inputs I used.One important thing to note: I used version 1-2 of White’s tool. It doesn’t include cooling. PHIUS has version 1-3 on their website, and it has the ability to include cooling energy in the calculations.Let’s dive into the results now. There are three curves on the graph. They show the global warming impact for cellulose (red), closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (green), and extruded polystyrene (blue). The calculator has a lot more options for insulation types, but I chose these three since they capture the important differences. Most of the others are similar to cellulose.I chose a reference R-value of 14. That matches what Wilson did in his calculations and means that we already have a wall equivalent to 2×6 cavities insulated with cellulose. The whole-wall R-value of that assembly is about 14. On the graph above, the three curves all begin at R-14.It’s what happens when add more insulation beyond the R-14 that gives you some guidance here. In this case, all three see their global warming impact drop as you go up from R-14. But cellulose has a different behavior than the other two. It just keeps dropping whereas the other two hit a minimum and then begin rising again.For closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (ccSPF), that minimum occurs in the mid-R-30 region. As you add this insulation type, the global warming impact keeps getting better and better until you’ve added about R-20. That would be about 3 inches of ccSPF.For extruded polystyrene (XPS), the minimum comes more quickly, at about R-19. Once you add about R-5 (or 1 inch) of XPS, the global warming impact begins to rise.When I discussed using this tool with David White and others, most believed that if you’re going to use XPS or ccSPF, you shouldn’t go further than the minimum. I drew the yellow line on the graph, however, to show where the net effect of adding XPS or ccSPF goes from positive to negative. With XPS, you can add about another R-5 before your assembly becomes worse for global warming than if you hadn’t added any extra insulation at all. With ccSPF, it’s beyond R-60, which, at about 7 inches, is also beyond the point that most people would use this type of insulation.Electric heat pump with “clean” electricityNow let’s look at the results for a heat pump. First, here’s the scenario for a house that uses “clean” electricity.last_img read more

You Need to Execute What You Already Know

first_imgIt is rare that I use my Sunday newsletter as a blog post, but this idea is so important, I don’t want you to miss it if you aren’t subscribed.Every week I receive emails, direct messages, and LinkedIn messages from salespeople who ask me questions. They want to know what book they should read to next, the book that is going to finally give them the one thing they need to produce breakthrough results. They ask me to tell them what the most important stage of the sales process is, and how they can get better at that one thing. Sometimes they ask even more specific questions about what the three most important discovery questions might be.They’re searching for the single answer that will generate better results as if there is a single book, a most important stage of the sales process, or a set of three perfect questions that cover discovery in all situations, all industries, and universally applicable to all prospective clients anywhere. These things are situational, and there isn’t a single answer.Because there is so much noise on the social channels and so very little signal, there is a growing tendency to believe that the next piece of information is going to be better and more important than the last, that what is missing is another idea, another concept, or another approach.For most people, better results in sales (and almost anything else, as I have yet to find an exception) is execution. But execution isn’t sexy. It doesn’t allow you to believe that there is an easier way to produce the result that you want. Nor does execution suggest that there is some piece of missing information that would solve your problem, allowing you to produce the result you want with less effort, in less time, and with greater ease.Execution doesn’t set up a straw man as a way to seduce you into believing that the reason you struggle to produce the results you want is because the most effective way to do what is necessary is old, outdated, and has been replaced by new methods (most likely, technology). That type of noise reminds me of the time management programs that promise to help you find 8 more hours in your week, somehow providing you with 176 while the rest of us make do with 168.What if you don’t need new information? What if there isn’t one part of the sales process that is more important than the others and requires more of your attention? What if you know everything you need to know and the real gap between your goals and your current performance is that you are simply not executing what you know you need to do and are instead allowing yourself to be seduced by promises that it could be easier for you?Your 2018 results are going to be made up of how well you execute against what you believe to be most important. If you need more information, go get it. But if you aren’t executing what you already know you need to do, don’t do anything before you execute.Happy New Year! One week in the books already.

On Wednesday, the Gator defensive back was suspended for a practice fight with tight end C’yontai Lewis which reportedly involved swinging helmets.

The Minutemen shouldn’t really stand a chance at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, but a practice fight is a pretty common occurrence in football, and one that rarely warrants a full game suspension, so one can imagine how bad it must have been.Last season, Tabor started nine of Florida’s 13 games, racking up 40 tackles, four interceptions, and scored two touchdowns off of the picks.last_img read more

World Cup Crib Notes Day 16

World Cup Crib Notes Day 16

The World Cup’s knockout stage begins Saturday, with both matchups pitting South American teams against each other. Lose and they’re gone.Brazil vs. Chile 12 p.m. EDTColombia vs. Uruguay 4 p.m. EDTIN BRIEFSee our World Cup predictions for the latest probabilities.IN DEPTHUruguay must face Colombia without striker Luis Suárez, who has been suspended nine games for eating a little Italian (defender Giorgio Chiellini) during Uruguay’s 1-0 victory over Italy on Tuesday. That’s good news for Colombian players who don’t care to be sampled like beef jerky, but bad news for Uruguay, which has proven itself to be more effective with Suárez than without him.Suárez’s teammates missed him when sat out Uruguay’s June 14 Group D match against Costa Rica because of tenderness from a knee operation three weeks earlier. Although Uruguay possessed the ball 56 percent of the time, it managed just nine shots (compared to Costa Rica’s 13), with only three on target. Without Suárez, Uruguay couldn’t finish and lost 3-1.Contrast that to Uruguay’s 2-1 victory over England on June 19. With Suárez in the lineup, the Uruguayans possessed the ball only 37 percent of the time but made the most of their opportunities: Suárez took Uruguay’s only two shots on frame and converted on both. He didn’t score when the team edged Italy 1-0, but he took a good bite out of the Italians’ concentration, and the Uruguayans scored soon after.The Colombians are led by attacking midfielder James Rodríguez, who has three goals and two assists in the tournament. Our World Cup predictive model gives Colombia a 69 percent chance of beating Uruguay.Saturday’s other match pits host Brazil, which won twice and drew once in Group A play, against Chile, which went 2-1 in Group B. ESPN’s Soccer Power Index rates Brazil as the best team in the world, and our model gives it a 41 percent chance of winning the tournament. We give it a 82 percent chance of beating Chile.OFF THE PITCHBrazil and Chile aren’t neighbors, but that hasn’t stopped them from forming close ties, both historically and in the modern day. After winning their independence from Portugal and Spain, respectively, in the early-19th century, their relations began with mutual support in separate conflicts with Argentina. More recently, the two countries signed bilateral agreements in education, culture and research — and that was before Chilean President Michelle Bachelet was re-elected and promised to put more focus on the nation’s relationship with Brazil. But what does that mean for these countries’ trade?According to data from the Observatory of Economic Complexity, the cooperation translates. In 2012, Brazil sent $9.59 billion worth of exports to Chile, but without a focus on one particular product. The biggest share was crude petroleum, at about 26 percent, but public passenger vehicles, bovine meat, footwear, glues and chocolate all had significant shares as well. Flowing in the opposite direction was $8.33 billion worth of Chilean goods. Their breakdown is a little more imbalanced, with cooper making up 55 percent of exports, but the remaining products are well-distributed, with things such as fresh fish, fertilizers, wine and car parts all comprising comparable fractions of exports to Brazil. — Hayley MunguiaFURTHER READINGWhom Do You Root For When Your Team Gets Knocked Out of the World Cup?The U.S.’s Odds of Beating Belgium And Every Other World Cup OpponentThe Germans Are Young, in Their Prime, And Really, Really Good read more

Urban Meyer Kevin Wilson discuss Ohio StateIndiana game

The No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0, 2-0 Big Ten) will open divisional play this weekend when they travel to Bloomington, Ind., to face the Indiana Hoosiers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten). First-year coach Urban Meyer doesn’t want a let down against the Hoosiers, saying OSU can’t afford to look beyond Saturday’s opponent yet. Meyer discussed his team’s upcoming match, as did Indiana coach Kevin Wilson, during Tuesday’s Big Ten Conference football coaches’ teleconference. Looking past the Hoosiers? After back-to-back wins against ranked opponents, including a 63-38 drubbing of then-No. 21 Nebraska Saturday, the Buckeyes seem to be a confident bunch. Meyer appears to be attempting to keep a lid on the confidence. Meyer said it’s important for his team to realize there is plenty of football to be played before they can be considered a great team. “These kids are 6-0 and a lot of people are telling them how good they are,” Meyer said. “Quite honestly, we have a long way to go.” It is something that, arguably, happens every year in college football. Teams can win a big game against a ranked team, ride that high all week, and then lose to an inferior opponent that they underestimate a week later. Meyer said he is not concerned with his team’s focus as it prepares for an Indiana team that has lost its last three games. “We’re not at the point that we can start overlooking anybody,” Meyer said. “I’m concerned about execution and stopping them, not overlooking them.” Nebraska win bodes well for the future Considering the number of recruits OSU hosted on Saturday, the win against the Cornhuskers could have major implications on Meyer’s program for years to come. Meyer wasn’t able to give an exact number of recruits in attendance, but said that “there were a lot” of prospective Buckeyes in the Horseshoe. Meyer also said the atmosphere in the stadium during the Buckeyes’ win left an impression of some of the nation’s elite high school prospects. “It’s a little risky sometimes to have a bunch of recruits come in on a big game, because if you fail and you lose, it’s miserable,” Meyer said. “The atmosphere was tremendous. The way we won in the second half, that was very critical for recruiting.” Miller a Heisman hopeful? As one of college football’s leaders in rushing yards per game, and the quarterback of the Big Ten’s only unbeaten team, sophomore Braxton Miller, is gaining hype as a Heisman Trophy contender. “He’s one of the best players in the college game,” Wilson said. Wilson did say that, “there are better players out there,” but pointed out that the sophomore quarterback will only improve as he grows into Meyer’s system. “He’s young,” Wilson said. “Knowing a little bit about him, and knowing the coach that he’s got, he will get better and better. You’re not seeing the best of him.” A key component in winning the Heisman Trophy is having big games on big stages against ranked opponents. Miller might have done that last Saturday, rushing for a career-high 186 yards and scoring two touchdowns in a win against Nebraska. Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, however, was not willing to anoint Miller as a favorite for college football’s most prestigious individual award. “That’s up to you guys,” Pelini said. Award winners The Buckeyes’ Saturday win has resulted in national accolades for several players on the team. For his five tackles-for-loss in the win against the Cornhuskers, senior defensive end John Simon has received three national awards including the Chuck Bednarik Award’s national player of the week award on Tuesday. Simon received the Lott IMPACT player of the week award, as well as College Football Performance defensive player of the week award, on Monday. Miller, who rushed for an OSU quarterback record 186 yards and a touchdown, was honored with the Davey O’Brien quarterback of the week award. After rushing for 140 yards and four touchdowns on 28 carries against Nebraska, junior running back Carlos Hyde was named the Big Ten’s co-offensive player of the week. Thanks to a 76-yard punt return in the third quarter against the Cornhuskers, junior wide receiver Corey Brown was named the Big Ten’s special teams player of the week. Pat Brennan contributed to this article. read more

Mens Basketball No 14 Ohio State rolls through Iowa with 8264 win

Ohio State freshman forward Kaleb Wesson (34) squares up to the basket in the first half of the game against Iowa on Feb. 10 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorNo. 14 Ohio State (22-5, 13-1) continued its win streak with a 82-61 win over Iowa (12-15, 3-11) at home on Saturday to improve to 13-1 in conference play.The Buckeyes shot 41 percent from 3 compared to 30 percent from the Hawkeyes. Ohio State scored 18 points off 12 turnovers from the Hawkeyes. Iowa finished the game shooting 8-for-10 from the line, while Ohio State struggled, going just 15-for-21. Freshman center Kaleb Wesson led Ohio State players with 18 points and was 5-for-8 from the field with seven rebounds, but struggled from the line, making just 8-of-11 attempts. Redshirt junior Keita Bates-Diop also had 14 points and eight rebounds, while junior guard C.J. Jackson had 14 points. Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said he was pleased with his team’s offensive effort overall in the game, even if the defense lacked behind at times.“We moved the ball, shared it, made the right pass at the right time, had a few too many turnovers but I thought offensively we were really good,” Holtmann said. “I give our guys a lot of credit for responding from an emotional game the other night, I’m proud of them.”Freshman forward Jack Nunge led the Hawkeyes with 18 points.A steal by Bates-Diop led to a layup from Jackson that sent the teams into the under-8 timeout. The Buckeyes went on an 8-0 run over 1:18 to take a 23-18 lead.  A quick turnover from Iowa’s sophomore forward Tyler Cook led to a dunk on a fast-break chance from senior forward Jae’Sean Tate to put the Buckeyes back on top 19-18. They never relinquished their lead. Ohio State pulled away on an 18-2 run with 18:25 left in the second half that kept the Hawkeyes at bay the remainder of the game. Iowa had cut the Ohio State lead down to just 44-36 before the Buckeyes went on their run, but it was unable to get any momentum going to get back in the matchup. Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery said things just spiraled out of control for his team.“As much as anything it was bad offense by us,” McCaffery said. “Good defense by them, they were up into us but I don’t think we moved the ball. I didn’t think we executed, they got some transition opportunities, we were missing. When you’re missing you need to get some back, we didn’t get enough back and credit them for that.”The teams traded buckets early. The Hawkeyes went on a 7-0 run over 1:57 with 9:40 remaining in the first half to put Iowa ahead 18-15.A 3-pointer from redshirt senior guard Andrew Dakich put the Buckeyes up 10 with 3:05 remaining in the first half. Jackson hit another 3 on the next possession for the Buckeyes. A dunk from Wesson and a 3-pointer from Jackson, followed by a layup from Tate, gave the Buckeyes their largest lead of the game to that point coming out of the half. The Hawkeyes were held scoreless for over three minutes and did not make any of their last six field goals by the under-16 timeout. read more
