People forget where to draw lines. Do it within lines. You want to criticize the government, do it! The issue is someone has died and the allegation is you are interfering”, the bench said.”We are ruled by the Rule of law. In India there is a Rule of law, right? How do you advocate that people who go around accusing others can find shelter of freedom of press?”, the bench remarked.On the previous day of the hearing, the Court had expressed concerns at the practice of “trial by media” during the pendency of investigation.”If you become the investigator, prosecutor and the judge, what is the use of us? Why are we here”, the bench had asked Advocate Malvika Trivedi, the lawyer representing Republic TV.The bench also asked the lawyer of Republic TV if asking the public who should be arrested in a case is part of investigative journalism. This was in reference to the hashtag campaign ‘#ArrestRhea’ run by the channel in Twitter following the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. “Is this part of investigative journalism? Asking public about their opinion on who should be arrested?”, the bench asked Advocate Malvika Trivedi.”When a case is under investigation and the issue is whether it’s a homicide or a suicide and a channel is saying it is murder, is that investigative journalism?”, the bench asked.The bench had told the channel’s lawyer “investigative powers are given to the police under the CrPC”. The bench had also expressed its disapproval at the manner in which Sushant’s death was reported.”There are certain Suicide Reporting guidelines. There should be no sensational headlines. Don’t you have respect for the dead? It is so unfortunate,” the bench remarked.The hearing of the case will resume at 3 PM.

PSE Foundation Launches New Competitive Grants to Aid in Response and…

first_imgFacebook9Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Puget Sound EnergyAs the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact our local communities, the Puget Sound Energy Foundation has revised its standard grant program to allow more organizations to apply with a broader range of qualifying funding requests. This has been a challenging time for Puget Sound Energy customers and communities, and the PSE Foundation is seeking to provide more flexible support for organizations that are stepping up to help.“We know this is a great time of need for the communities we serve and the organizations that support them,” said PSE Foundation Chairman and President Andy Wappler. “We are living our value to do what’s right and helping how we can.”The PSE Foundation, which is a nonprofit entity operating independently of PSE but helps the communities PSE services, will provide grants totaling $400,000 before the end of this year in response and recovery to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nonprofit and public charity organizations located within PSE’s 16 county service and operation areas (Chelan, Columbia, Cowlitz, Douglas, Garfield, Island, King, Kitsap, Kittitas, Klickitat, Lewis, Pierce, Snohomish, Skagit, Thurston, and Whatcom counties) can apply for a grant to be selected through a competitive process; deadlines are Aug. 31 and Oct. 1 with funding awarded in October and December respectively.  Applicants applying prior to the Aug. 31 deadline will automatically be considered in both rounds of funding.The program will be seeking to fund programs and/or services to ensure community members have access to shelter, food, or personal protection equipment (PPE). Funding will also be considered for organizations that provide these critical services or programs to community members so they can continue to keep doors open by funding deep cleaning expenses, equipment, PPE or other mandated health and safety requirements.Together, the PSE Foundation and PSE have already contributed more than $1.3 million towards mitigating impacts of COVID-19 across PSE’s service area communities.The Puget Sound Energy Foundation is dedicated to keeping our communities safe and prepared where PSE serves and operates. The PSE Foundation is a nonprofit organization that operates independently of Puget Sound Energy. None of the funds will ever come from PSE’s utility customers.last_img read more

A hand in need: Shane Warne’s distillery starts making hand sanitisers instead of gin

first_imgAdvertisement abqNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs4rWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E8txb( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) tsdWould you ever consider trying this?😱1s091umtCan your students do this? 🌚hgqq7rRoller skating! Powered by Firework Legendary Aussie leg-spinner Shane Warne, has decided to manufacture hand sanitisers instead of gin at a distillery he co-owns during these “challenging times”. The ongoing global pandemic of Covid-19, has claimed over 9000 lives so far with more than 2,00,000 people across the world remain infected. And Warne’s company, ‘SevenZeroEight Gin’ rather than producing alcohol, has started manufacturing “medical-grade 70 % alcohol” hand sanitiser from March 17 onwards for two Australian hospitals.Advertisement “This is a challenging time for Australians and we all need to do what we can to help our healthcare system combat this disease and save lives,” Advertisement “I am happy SevenZeroEight has the ability to make this shift and encourage others to do the same.” Warne wrote on his Instagram page in response to the Australian Prime Minister’s plea to the country’s businesses to help however they can during the coronavirus crisis.So, when his company started producing hand-sanitisers, Warne couldn’t hold back his delight,Advertisement “So proud of all the team @708gin as this is awesome! I’m so glad we could do this and help everyone! Choose helping followers. Love you all,” the leggie tweeted.Covid-19 which is colloquially called as the coronavirus, first broke out in Wuhan in China’s Hubei province last year and has afflicted over 220,000 individuals throughout the globe. According to latest reports, Australia has seen more than 750 confirmed cases, with seven deaths from the disease.On Wednesday, Scott Morrison the Australian Prime Minister declared a “human biosecurity emergency” adding that the country’s citizens should scrap all overseas travel plans due to the epidemic that could last at least six months.The outbreak has also led to the panic buying of daily essentials including hand sanitisers throughout the country.Meanwhile, the disease has also resulted in the postponement of several sporting events down under, including cricket. Australia were supposed to host a three match ODI series against New Zealand which had to be called off after the first game. The three-match T20Is series in New Zealand, which was scheduled to start from March 24 was postponed as well.Sheffield Shield, the domestic first-class competition along with Australian women’s cricket team’s tour of South Africa, has been cancelled too. You may also like: Shane Warne has his say on who the better batsmen is between Smith and KohliClassy Shane Warne raises $1 Million for Australian bushfire crisis by auctioning his test cap Advertisementlast_img read more

Choosing the Cheapest Path to Net Zero

first_img RELATED ARTICLES Start with this documentDana Dorsett suggests that Steve start by reviewing the recommendations in a Building America report authored by John Straube in 2010 and updated the following year. (For more information on this report, see R-Value Advice from Building Science Corporation.) Because the report is a few years old, Dorsett points out, the efficiencies of photovoltaic systems and heat pumps have changed somewhat, meaning that Steve can probably hit net-zero performance with the recommendations for Climate Zone 4 rather than Climate Zone 5 where Steve is actually going to build. What about the windows?Triple-pane windows can be a lot more expensive than double-pane windows. Are they worth it?Relying on the “Pretty Good House” threads he’s read, Andrew C believes that triple-pane windows would be “overkill” for most houses.“Get good double-pane windows, and used fixed versus operable where you can,” he says. “Spend more time and attention to your air-sealing details to get more bang for your buck.”Nate G agrees with Dorsett’s initial suggestion: double-pane U-0.25 windows will indeed be the sweet spot. “Just fine and not too expensive,” he says.Jon R put it this way: “I’d say that not having triple-pane windows is a matter of turning up the heat on the coldest days and does not require tolerating lower comfort. This one can be treated as a solely economic issue (cost of window upgrade vs. cost of increased energy use).”But to Stephen Sheehy, there’s more to it: the comfort factor. “Windows with a better U rating will not just save energy,” he says. “There is a definite comfort factor for anyone sitting near a window on a cold day. The warmer the interior glass layer, the more comfortable. Whether better windows are worth the extra money is of course pretty subjective.” The real cost of solarAlthough Anon3 writes that the cost of a PV module is already below $1 per installed watt (actually more like 60 cents a watt), others point to the difference between the cost of a PV module and the cost of an installed PV system.“You appear to be confusing the retail price of the panels with the installed price of the complete system,” Nate G says, adding that a website Anon3 has referenced sells a complete 20 kW system for $31,000, not the $20,000 that Anon3 referred to. “And regardless,” he adds, “retail or wholesale prices (panels or full system) are completely irrelevant to this discussion unless [Steve] is planning to install the PV array himself.”What if Steve installed the solar system himself to save money?“Tread very carefully here,” Dorsett says. “There are a lot of regulatory hoops to jump through, and they vary by local codes, and by the local utility. An experienced local installer will have already starred in that movie, and is more likely to get the immediate approval from the local regulatory and utility officials. Even if you do it perfectly (and assuming it’s even legal for DIY grid-attached solar without the necessary licenses and credentials), you will receive more scrutiny than the contractor, and are likely to be waiting in longer queues to be allowed to hook up.”Further, solar contractors can get better quality materials than someone building a single system. “It’s doable,” he says, “but study hard and think about it before diving in.” R-Value Advice from Building Science CorporationAre HRVs Cost-Effective?Exhaust-Only Ventilation Systems and RadonDrainwater Heat Recovery Can Lower Your HERS ScoreThe Pretty Good HouseRevisiting Net Zero EnergyZero-Energy Construction is ‘Set to Explode’HRV or ERV? Is “standard construction plus solar” an option?A reader with the screen name “Anon3” suggests that if Steve’s goal is the cheapest route to net-zero energy, the answer is probably “standard construction + solar panels.”“The trades (even illegals) just cannot compete with the efficiency of automated Chinese solar factories,” Anon3 says.But “What’s ‘standard’?,” asks Andy Chappell-Dick.“Anon3, you may not be aware what ‘standard construction’ is in Ohio,” he writes. “Our dated state building code is not enforced in many places, and contractors haven’t adopted any energy improvements on their own. It would take a lot of solar panels to zero out a build like that. [Steve], find a contractor soon that understands what you want and is willing to work with you toward your goals. Many of these early design decisions will have a major impact on final cost (and the number of solar panels you’ll need.)”Anon3 replies that if Steve could save $20,000 by using standard construction techniques, he could use that money for a 20-kilowatt PV system. “That’s a lot of electricity,” he says.“Where in Ohio can you get solar PV installed for a buck a watt?” asks Nate G.“But PV [is] not a buck a watt (yet), and won’t be any time soon,” Dorsett adds. “The national average cost of small roofop PV in the U.S. is about $3/watt [according to the Open PV Project run by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory]. In Australia it’s closer to $2/watt. If you can wait another 15-20 years it may hit $1/watt, though.”center_img Writing from northeast Ohio, a reader with the screen name “User-6877304” — let’s call him Steve — is seeking comments on his plans to build an affordable net-zero energy home. The house, to be built on a 30-foot by 50-foot slab-on-grade foundation, seems to have many characteristics of a “Pretty Good House” — that is, it’s well insulated and ventilated but not attempting to hit the Passive House metric.Steve plans to install R-10 rigid insulation beneath the slab. The house will have double-stud walls insulated with cellulose to R-40 and a raised-heel truss roof insulated to R-60.“A simple gable metal roof,” he writes in a Q&A post at Green Building Advisor. “Solar panels. Basic interior finishes: nothing custom.”His questions boil down to a consideration of specific features: the best heating and cooling option, windows, drain-water heat recovery, and whether a heat-recovery or energy-recovery ventilator is a good investment.That’s today’s Q&A Spotlight. But, he adds, it’s important to remember the effect of thermal bridging.“Note, those are ‘whole-assembly R-values,’ not center-of-cavity R-values, factoring in all the thermal bridging,” Dorsett say. “An R-25 wall could be a 2×6 / R-20 wall with 2 inches of exterior polyiso foam. An R-30 wall would take 3 inches of exterior foam. A double-stud wall with a foot of cellulose also comes in the mid 30s, despite a center-cavity R-40+.”As to the specifics, Dorsett makes these recommendations:(1) Heating with minisplit heat pumps will be “far cheaper” than beefing up the size of the PV system enough to handle the load of electric baseboard heat, and the same system will be able to provide high-efficiency cooling as well.(2) Triple-pane windows would make the house more comfortable than double-pane windows, but in Steve’s climate a double-pane window with a U-factor of 0.25 is “probably going to be the sweet spot for net zero.”(3) Drain-water heat recovery requires at least 4 feet of vertical drain below the shower in order to work, making it an option for a two-story house built on a slab but not a one-floor design.(4) An ordinary tank-style electric water heater is probably the best bet. On-demand electric water heaters draw a lot of current, potentially costing “tens of dollars” for a 15-minute shower. A heat-pump water heater would potentially work, providing Steve had a place to put it. Investing in heat-recovery ventilationA key question for Steve’s house, as it would be for any tightly built home, is what type of ventilation system should be installed. Heat-recovery and energy-recovery ventilators are a common choice because they salvage some of the heating or cooling energy even as they introduce fresh air into the house.Steve wonders whether he could skip the extra expense of buying an HRV or ERV and compensating for the loss of energy by buying more PV capacity. Maybe, he says, he could get by with one or two Panasonic WhisperComfort fans, which are advertised as “spot energy recovery” units.“ERV cores are prone to freeze damage in your climate,” says Dorsett. “For a 1500 [square foot] house with a relatively open floor plan you can probably get by with a single pair of ductless Lunos HRV and a Panasonic WhisperGreen bath fan with the optional humidity/condensation sensor for ventilation.”No, replies GBA senior editor Martin Holladay, an ERV should not be a problem. “Dana Dorsett is rarely wrong, but on this point, he is wrong,” Holladay says. A few inexpensive ERVs (including the Panasonic FV-04 mini-ERV) are inappropriate for cold climates, but most ERVs are designed with controls to address frost build-up. Holladay says that when “installed and operated according to the manufacturer’s installation instructions,” an ERV will not be damaged by frost.Holladay thinks that in Steve’s climate zone, a larger PV system plus a simple ventilation system is a better investment than an HRV or ERV, although Steve may have reasons other than cost to prefer an HRV or ERV.Holladay refers Steve to a GBA article called “Are HRVs Cost-Effective?” “Note that since John Semmelhack performed the calculations discussed in that article, the cost of PV has dropped, making it harder to justify an HRV or ERV on cost savings alone.”And while Dorsett raises concerns that an exhaust-only ventilation system could increase radon levels in some areas, Holladay says that is not necessarily the case. (For more information on this issue, see “Exhaust-Only Ventilation Systems and Radon.”) Our expert’s opinionGBA technical director Peter Yost added these comments:Steve has gotten great advice on a number of fronts for his high-performance home. I have a few additional thoughts:(1) Double-stud walls in Climate Zone 5: Dana Dorsett references a great Building America resource, but let’s remember some key hygrothermal issues for double-stud wall assemblies. Given how cold the sheathing can get in the winter, airtightness is much more important for a double-stud wall than for a conventional wall. Many builders using the double-stud wall system select the most moisture-tolerant sheathing they can afford — in my neck of the woods, southern Vermont, some builders use board sheathing. Also, maintaining reasonable interior wintertime relative humidity (around 35% or less) is important. Finally, use a smart vapor retarder on the interior to control winter interstitial moisture content and maintain good drying capacity to the interior.(2) Exhaust-only ventilation: Joe Lstiburek very reluctantly changes his building science assessments — not necessarily a criticism — but he has unequivocally eliminated exhaust-only systems for whole-house ventilation for “tight” new homes. In his assessment, he considers how this ventilation approach can aggravate radon. In my own home, adding exhaust ventilation to the basement moved radon levels from 6 picocuries per liter (pCl) to 13.The next most affordable approach is a central-fan-integrated supply system. This of course would require Steve to have a central forced-air HVAC system, which is not an option he is currently considering. In terms of “affordable” balanced mechanical whole-house ventilation systems, you’ll find a good discussion here.(3) Minisplit vs. electric-resistance heat: If you get the loads low enough in this home, electric resistance heating is a real option. This comparison needs to include layout and the configuration/use of spaces, because minisplits are better-suited to open layouts and fewer or single-zone configuration, while electric-resistance heat is well-suited to individual room control. And this comparison must consider what type of whole-house ventilation will be included. And, oh yeah, this decision also depends on how you will be making domestic hot water.(4) Windows: I know there is no way to “cost-effectively” rationalize Passive House tilt-and-turn triple-paned windows. But their engineering — beefier frames, more and better gaskets, sturdier hardware — makes them so much more durable and easier to operate that their total benefit makes them worth considering. It could be that if or when you go to sell this house with these superior windows, you can find the buyer who is willing to pay a premium for the house because of them. Then you don’t have to completely burden the window selection with just a payback analysis; you get your return based on the extra value conveyed from you to the next owner.For more information, check this article at BuildingGreen.last_img read more
