Tatis’ stellar catch, Machado HR lift Padres over Astros 5-3

first_img Fernando Tatis Jr. made two spectacular plays at shortstop, Manny Machado hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning and the San Diego Padres got a lockdown performance from their bullpen to beat the Houston Astros 5-3 Sunday for a three-game sweep.The Padres, who got to nemesis Zack Greinke in the fourth inning, have won seven straight, all against the two Texas teams. The Astros have lost three straight. They came in on an eight-game winning streak.Tatis retreated into left field and jumped to rob George Springer of a hit for the second out of the eighth inning. Springer couldn’t believe it, and reliever Craig Stammen (3-1) clapped for the 21-year-old star.Tatis then led off the eighth with a single to shallow right-center off rookie Enoli Paredes (1-1), and Machado followed with a shot to right-center, his eighth.The Padres weren’t able to add on to their “Slam Diego” power display of the past week. On Saturday night, they became the first team in big league history to hit five grand slams in six games. They were also the first to hit a grand slam in four straight games, a streak started by Tatis on Monday night at Texas and continued by Machado with a walkoff grand slam Wednesday night at home against the Rangers.The Padres never loaded the bases Sunday.In the fifth, Tatis made a spinning stop of Jose Altuve’s grounder to start an inning-ending double play.After rookie Adrian Morejon allowed three runs before getting the second out of the game, the Padres held Houston scoreless the rest of the way.Stammen pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings for the win. Emilio Pagán, the Padres’ sixth pitcher, worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save in six chances.Greinke kept the Padres off-balance until the fourth, when they broke through to tie the game at 3. Tatis hit a leadoff single for San Diego’s first hit and scored on Eric Hosmer’s double into the right-field corner. Wil Myers walked and rookie Jake Cronenworth singled to right to bring in Hosmer.Greinke complained about the mound, and the game was delayed so the grounds crew could work on it. Due to coronavirus protocols, all the players had to leave the field, although Greinke returned after a few minutes and was showing the workers what to do. Greinke then sat down cross-legged on the grass behind the mound while the workers smoothed the dirt.When play resumed, Jurickson Profar’s grounder scored Myers to tie it.The Astros jumped on Morejon for three runs in the span of the first four batters. Springer drew a leadoff walk and scored on Carlos Correa’s one-out single. Kyle Tucker followed with a two-run homer to left-center, his third.Greinke allowed three runs and four hits in six innings, struck out four and walked two. He came in 13-3 with a 2.37 ERA against San Diego in 25 career starts.Morejon was on a pitch limit, so he was lifted with two outs in the second after throwing 36 pitches. He allowed three runs and three hits, struck out three and walked one in 1 2/3 innings.

South Africa reassures investors

first_img15 March 2016South Africa is a steady, well-functioning economy – that is the message the National Treasury conveyed to international investors during a roadshow to London, Boston and New York last week.Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan headed the group of business leaders, three labour federations and senior officials from the National Treasury and the South African Reserve Bank to engage with international investors after the tabling of the 2016 Budget.See what the minister said:The roadshow was also a means to provide updates on the latest economic developments in the country and plans for the medium term. Meetings were held with over 250 investors, some with significant exposure to South Africa. Among the issues raised by the investors were:Fiscal risks and strains in balance sheets of state-owned companies;Recent developments on sovereign credit ratings;Slow economic growth;Issues relating to business and investment confidence;Regulatory clarity, labour and monetary policy andThe political environment.One unified voice“Our main message to the investors was that as a resilient nation, South Africa has the potential to overcome its immediate challenges,” the Treasury said. “What is required is for (the) government, labour and business to work together on concrete steps and actions that will be taken to lift economic growth.“The world economic outlook is uncertain and it is crucial that the country be seen to be united and focused on tackling its socio-economic challenges.”The next few months would be critical, the Treasury said, as it mapped a path for higher economic growth, to preserve the investment grade rating, and address poverty, unemployment and inequality.Source: Department of Treasurylast_img read more

Zoho Goes Beyond Google Apps With Unified Search

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Tags:#enterprise#news#saas Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Zoho offers a full suite of services that in some respects mirrors Google Apps. Zoho also offers business apps for CRM; project management; online reporting and business intelligence; invoicing and additional services.You can see, then, how Zoho search unifies queries, but also the applications. That’s compelling for growing businesses and companies with multiple business units.For example, a query can check:CRM for contact informationAn email system to view the emails you exchanged with the customerDocument system to view agreements you have with the customerOthers systems to get other pieces of data. Zoho is not alone in offering unified search. There are a number of SaaS services, such as Sharepoint and Box.net that offer in-depth enterprise search capability. Zoho has a history of offering services that mirrors Google Apps. Zoho is a partner with Google in the Google Apps Marketplace. They see their service as complimentary to some degree. But they also offer a suite of services that put them more into the SaaS world of enterprise applications.Google will most likely offer a similar search capability. But this does give Zoho the opportunity to reach into a deeper market and serve existing customer with a service that makes it easier to connect and find the information they need to make fast decisions. Related Posts Zoho is launching unified search today across all of its applications. Previously, Zoho had search on individual apps. The new capability means that people may search across all applications in one search query. The search service makes Zoho one of the few services that can offer a search that spans multiple applications. For instance, Google offers search for individual applications but not across the entirety of its services.In some respects the news puts Zoho into a much larger market. It provides potential customers with further incentive to use a SaaS for productivity purposes. It also further distinguishes itself with Google Apps. alex williamslast_img read more

Blue Heron EcoHaus: Blower Door Testing

first_imgAirtightness is as important as, if not more important than, the amount of insulation you put in your house. These two elements of building — insulation and airtightness — are the two pillars of a passive house (and pretty much any other “eco-house” building).For our house, we’d gone with high levels of insulation — in the range of three times the typical amount for standard construction. We had R-32 under the slab and in the basement walls, R-56 for the above-grade walls, and R-80 in the attic. However, in deciding on our insulation levels and in targeting our goals for airtightness, we did try to strike a balance between cost and benefit and recognize the point of diminishing returns.I have written about our insulation choices previously here, so I will not revisit that topic. But in terms of airtightness, there are some basics that are worth discussing. The fact is that air leaking into and out of a building is not efficient, no matter how much insulation you have in the walls. Although insulation decisions, thermal bridge reduction, and solar gain can be designed into the house, airtightness can really only be ensured while constructing the building. Editor’s note: Kent Earle and his wife, Darcie, write a blog called Blue Heron EcoHaus, documenting their journey “from urbanites to ruralites” and the construction of a superinsulated house on the Canadian prairies. Their previous blog on GBA was called Insulation, Air-Sealing, and a Solar Array. The blog below was originally published in January. (A complete list of Kent Earle’s GBA blogs is provided in the “Related articles” sidebar below.) Choosing an “ambitious but realistic goal”We decided to set an ambitious but realistic goal of 0.8 ach50.The reason for this was four-fold.First, our house is not big. It is a rectangular bungalow measuring 1,240 square feet. The blower door test is an test of absolute air leakage from the building — not a relative test. By that I mean that a large house can more easily meet a lower ACH level then a smaller house due to the greater volume of the house overall.Second, we were not prepared to spend a great amount of money on air-sealing tapes, interior sheathing, and the labor to do this. In Canada, a standard house is sealed with a 6-mil vapor barrier (the cost is $50 per 8 foot by 500 foot roll) and tuck tape (also known as housewrap tape; $6 per roll). A Passivhaus is often sheathed with 5/8-inch OSB ($25 per 4-foot by 8-foot sheet) on the interior to serve as its vapor retarder or with a high-end Intello Plus vapor barrier ($320 per 64 inch by 164 foot roll) with the seams sealed with Tescon Profil tape or Vana tape ($45 per roll).It does not take much in the way of math skills to see that the latter option can get extremely expensive. But if you really want to ensure you hit that Passivhaus 0.6 ach50 target, that’s probably what you need to do. (The Tescon Profil tape is often used on the outside walls as well to seal the air barrier, windows, and doors).Third, we were not pursuing Passivhaus certification, so really there was no point in ensuring that we hit 0.6 ach50. If you’re spending the money to have a Passivhaus consultant work with you at the initial design stage and you’re spending the money on high-end Passivhaus-certified windows, as well as special tapes and extra insulation, you had better make sure that you hit 0.6 ach50 or all of that expense will be for nothing.For us, if we made 0.6 ach50, great. If we didn’t, oh well.Finally, we were installing a wood-burning stove and chimney. Although the stove itself is a very high-quality unit from Morsø in Denmark, I figured that this extra hole in the wall would negatively impact our airtightness. But we were not budging on the wood stove. We also had another extra hole in the wall for the water cistern in the basement — but again, this could not be avoided.All that being said, we did make every effort to design the house so it would be as airtight as we could get it. The dense-packed cellulose in the walls itself provides a high degree of air sealing on its own. We limited the penetrations into and out of the house by selecting a condensing dryer from Bosch and having an electric boiler. (The only penetrations are the chimney stack, the water cistern pipe, and the heat-recovery ventilator).We used standard 6-mil poly for the vapor barrier, with acoustic sealant at every seam. Each seam was also taped with standard tuck tape to ensure another layer of added protection. Around the windows and exterior doors, we used Teson Profil air-sealing tapes to attach the vapor barrier to the frames. Although this tape is very pricey, it made sense to me to use it here as the greatest area of air leakage is often at the window frames and doors.

Now it was time to test the houseThe testing is done with a blower-door test. The depressurization test is described at the U.S. Department of Energy website this way: “A blower door is a powerful fan that mounts into the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside. The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings.”The pressurization test is performed in a similar way, except by forcing air into the house.“The auditors may use a smoke pencil to detect air leaks,” the website continues. “These tests determine the air infiltration rate of a building. Blower doors consist of a frame and flexible panel that fit in a doorway, a variable-speed fan, a pressure gauge to measure the pressure differences inside and outside the home, and an airflow manometer and hoses for measuring airflow.”Essentially, the test simulates wind blowing against the house in all directions at the same time. The test takes about an hour to administer with the tester taking multiple readings at different fan speeds both while depressurizing and pressurizing the building.While the test was running, we also used an infrared camera to look for any hot or cold spots.Testers measure air flow while a fan temporarily placed in a doorway pressurizes and depressurizes the building.A couple of days later, the technician sent us the results: 0.8 ach50.Right bang on our goal. Not bad. The guy who tested it said it was the tightest building he’d ever tested.I was happy enough with the results, but a couple of days later I happened to be standing beside the chimney on a windy day and I could (ever so slightly) hear a whistle through the stovepipe. I looked closely at the seams and saw they were not fully sealed. Damn!We’d also had some crappy construction locks on the doors, and when I put my hand against them I could feel wind there, too! Double damn!After sealing these leaks and a few other tiny ones we found, we did another test a couple of weeks ago. This time, the results were 0.72 ach50. Not too shabby.After talking to the tester, though, he thought that given the higher-than-expected discrepancy between the depressurized and pressurized values, maybe the vents of the HRV had opened slightly and causing a skew to occur. He’d like to do one more retest in a couple of weeks, thinking this would take it down to 0.65 ach50 or lower. At this point, he’s doing it at no charge; he’s simply interested to see what the truest level of airtightness is.For me, I’m happy to know that we reached almost Passivhaus airtightness values while still being as economical as possible. Airtightness is tested with a blower door. The usual metric is “air changes per hour at 50 pascals of pressure,” or ach50. Typical construction in Canada reaches about 3 ach50. The Canadian R2000 program, our high-efficiency energy standard, calls for 1.5 ach50, while the Passivhaus standard is a whopping 0.6 ach50.Although I was hoping we could target the extremely difficult goal of 0.6 ach50, the question was: How much money were we willing to spend in order to get there? As with insulation levels, there is a point of diminishing returns. Would 0.8 ach50 versus 0.6 ach50 be any more noticeable in terms of user comfort? And over the lifespan of the building, would you ever balance out these costs?

Pasaol reminds Pumaren of ‘joyous’ PBA great Meneses

first_imgAlvin Pasaol. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netHigh-scoring and fun-loving.Those were some of words University of the East coach Derrick Pumaren used to describe his star scorer Alvin Pasaol.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC BSP sees higher prices in November, but expects stronger peso, low rice costs to put up fight Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  And on the heels of his 49-point game and 81-point week, the veteran mentor couldn’t help but compare his 6-foot-3 swingman to a star he handled many moons ago.“He is like Vergel,” said Pumaren, referring to Jose Rizal University coach Vergel Meneses. “Vergel he loves to have fun, but when it’s time to play, when it’s business, then he goes down to work. That’s his attitude, and that’s the same with Alvin.”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 shutoutPumaren  had the privilege to coach Meneses in the pro league with the now-defunct Sunkist. They won two PBA championships and nearly a Grand Slam as the man they called “The Aerial Voyager” became the 1995 PBA Most Valuable Player.Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netThough their partnership was considerably short, what stood out the most for Pumaren was Meneses’ joyous attitude, which is also something that he sees in Pasaol. Read Next “Alvin likes to joke and always laughs. When I talk and run plays, you could look at him and think that he’s not listening. Vergel is just like that too. But when we run it, he knows the plays,” he said.Pumaren also said that Pasaol may look like laid back to some, but he commands respect from his fellow Red Warriors.“He’s happy-go-lucky, but he’s the leader of the team. That is what I projected from him when I recruited him in Davao. I knew that he’s gonna be a star in the UAAP and he has shown it this season,” he said.Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netMeneses, though, was on the defensive when brought up the comparison, quipping, “I’m not that fat.”But turning serious, the three-time PBA champion said that being “fun loving” is just the way he wanted the game to be played back in his heyday.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “There are type of players who seem like they just want to enjoy the game. That’s how I am. I just enjoy the game. If I’m not enjoying it, when I’m not smiling, I’ll do just 20 points. But when I enjoy the game, the opponents are dead,” the PBA great said.Though Meneses admitted that he only saw part of Pasaol’s game, he could understand Pumaren’s analogy.“He’s so relaxed but he’s gonna kill you. It’s almost the same to my game. What coach Derrick said was true. If he’s slimmer, he may be scoring 80 in a game,” he said.“Of course, coach Derrick knows me. So for him to compare me, I can be a model for the boy. Whatever I’ve achieved when I was still playing, he could follow my footsteps and I become an inspiration for him.”Amid the fanfare, Pumaren’s hopes that not only Pasaol sustains his hot streak, but also for the Red Warriors to make a late run to the Final Four in the second round.“When you’re in a zone, you feel that everything is gonna go right for him. Hopefully, he’ll continue to have that follow up, but he has to maintain that level that it’s not over yet, that he’s not just a two-game sensation and then in the next seven games, he’ll be non-existent.”Beyond UAAP Season 80, Pumaren has grander aspirations for his superb scorer.“Hopefully, I can also produce another MVP in the PBA,” he said.

Mike Gundy Announces Marcell Ateman Will Redshirt In 2016

first_imgThis is probably the smart move as 2017 was always the more likely Big 12 title year for OSU (presuming Mason Rudolph and James Washington return to Stillwater). Oklahoma State’s group of receivers could look like this in 2017:Marcell Ateman (Sr.)James Washington (Sr.)Chris Lacy (Sr.)Jalen McCleskey (Jr.)Tyron Johnson (So.) — this is the five-star LSU transferDillon Stoner (RFr.)That’s a crew. One that could be the Big 12 title favorite depending on how the end of this season goes. This is a bummer for Ateman, of course, but at least he will now get the senior season he deserves instead of an injury-shortened three-game stretch.
