The captain of Jamaica’s Under-20 team that disappointed many with their impotent performance in the first quarter of this year when they failed to qualify for the World Cup has restored his reputation with a big performance in the Red Stripe Premier League.In fact, Junior Flemmings did more than that. The 19-year-old, who was largely responsible for Tivoli Gardens’ 3-2 win over fierce rivals Arnett Gardens, became a man as he almost carried his team on his back as they registered their third successive victory and climbed two places to sit third in the table on 11 points.The former Jamaica College player not only had a foot in all three of his team’s goals, he outdid three defenders and the goalkeeper to score the final goal and secure victory himself. All throughout the game, Flemmings and his more seasoned compatriot Jermaine Johnson were unplayable whenever they went forward.Tivoli’s opening goal came when Ranike Anderson climbed high to head home a Flemmings free kick in the 33rd minute. Andrew Phang levelled in the 45th and Kemal Malcolm fired the home team ahead in the 67th. Substitute Otis Ffriend was on hand to steer home one of three Flemmings free kicks to rebound into play before Flemmings finished the job on the final move of the match.”It is an overwhelming feeling. Coming to Arnett Gardens to play is not an easy thing and to actually get the three points after being 1-2 down is really special.”We really stuck together, dug deep and came out with the victory,” the very assured Flemmings said after the game.Sounding like one much older than his years, Flemmings indicated that his intention coming into the game was to earn the man of the match honour and give his team the victory. His task, he said, was made easier by the slowness of the Arnett Gardens defenders.”Their defenders are really slow and we really exploited that today,” he said matter-of-factly.unpleasant memoriesIn addition to a desire to erase the unpleasant memories of the World Cup qualifier, Flemmings is driven by a desire to make his mark among big men.”Being a schoolboy coming out of the Manning Cup and coming into the Premier League is not an easy thing. They always say that there has never been a schoolboy that actually left Manning Cup and actually came in the Premier League and be outstanding. I just want to create my own trademark and make my own legacy,” the ambitious player said.He may not be the most accurate when it comes to the facts of players shining in the League during or right after their schoolboy years, but his approach to getting the top is the right one.”What you are seeing now is just because of hard work. It is just hard work and more hard work that has contributed to this. I just kept on working. The work never stops.”The free kicks are something that I have been practising day in day out. Before training actually starts, I would get the mannequins and practise, practise because I know that one day, it will come in handy,” said Flemmings, who has set himself a target of eight goals in the League before taking up a professional opportunity in January.

A young Donegal man who plucked two drowning youths from the sea never found out who they were.A brave but very modest Shaun Haughey.Brave Shaun Haughey, 21, jumped into the waters at Lough Swilly off Rathmullan Pier after spotting the two young men in distress.The youths were part of a group of four men who were swimming at the pier. But strong currents at the notoriously dangerous swimming spot dragged the men several metres away from the pier.Two of the men managed to make it back safely to the pier but the other two began to go under the water.Friends of the men managed to throw them a lifebuoy but forgot to hold onto the rope and it floated away.Shaun was fishing off the pier with his girlfriend when the drama began to unfold. Without any thought for his own safety, Shaun stripped off his clothes and dived into the cold waters shortly after 9pm on Sunday night last.Gentle-giant Shaun managed to grapple with the two youths and was able to push them onto a moored boat and eventually to safety.Crowds cheered heroic Shaun, from the village of Drumkeen, as he emerged from the water.But when he went looking to check on the youths, they had disappeared.A modest Shaun said he was only doing his civic duty. The incident took place at Rathmullan PierIt later transpired that he hadn’t even told his family or friends about his actions which undoubtedly saved the lives of two young men.He went to work at Medisize medical company in Letterkenny and his friends were none the wiser that they were working alongside a real-life hero.“I just did what anybody else would have done. My instincts just kicked in and I was just so happy that I was able to get them out and that they were okay,” he said.And Shaun, who plays soccer for Glenree FC, said he certainly doesn’t want any recognition or reward for what he did. “I’m just glad the lads are okay. I didn’t even get to know who they were because they went away so quickly.“But they seemed okay and that’s all that matters really,” he said.* Are you one of the men Shaun saved and want to thank him.

5 April 2012More than one-million eWallets have been created, and over R1.6-billion paid into them, since the launch of the mobile money transfer solution in 2009, says South Africa’s First National Bank. FNB’s eWallet allows customers to send money to anyone in South Africa with a valid mobile phone number. Funds can be transferred instantly, and the recipient receives a text message indicating that funds have been sent to their cellphone. eWallet allows payments to be made into accounts held at all major South African banks, and to nominated beneficiaries, including municipalities and major retail stores. ‘More than just a transfer solution’ “eWallet is more than just a money transfer solution,” Yolande van Wyk, CEO of FNB eWallet Solutions, said in a statement on Monday. “The recipient is able to withdraw cash at FNB ATMs, buy pre-paid airtime or electricity, send money to another cellphone, purchase and/or get cash at selected retailers, as well as make once-off payments. “We have seen year-on-year eWallet growth of 143% since January 2011,” Van Wyk said. “Average daily ‘send’ values are in excess of R3-million, double the figures we saw a year ago. Extending access to banking “We believe the growth of eWallet illustrates the important role it plays in providing access to financial services.” The majority of the funds sent to eWallets originate from metropolitan hubs, and are then accessed across the country, often in small towns such as Giyani in Limpopo province and Ngcobo in Eastern Cape. Research recently undertaken by FNB indicates that 61% of funds are sent to provinces other than the one where the user resides. “We offer a range of financial services to anyone with a South African cellphone number, providing a safe and convenient mechanism to transact,” Van Wyk added.

RELATED MULTIMEDIA TRANSCRIPTPhil Kaplan: Today, we’re going to be talking about Passivhaus, a very exciting topic. People are starting to get to know what this is. It took them a little while to catch up with LEED — they still call it “LEEDS.” But the tipping point for Passivhaus came about a year ago. It was an article in the New York Times about a couple who heat their house with nothing. It was the most e-mailed article from the New York Times website for weeks! All right, the energy geeks were out there! That was a good sign, and here we are.Chris Briley: Right now, I’ve just started working on my first passive house. You know, we haven’t done one of these on LEED, but that’s old hat now — and two years from now, maybe this will be.Phil: If you’re on Green Building Advisor, LEED is ‘old hat’ already.Chris: Before we dive into Passivhaus, it’s cocktail time. Cheers![The guys talk about Man of the Moment and the practicality of keeping Grande Marnier in the glove compartment.]Phil: This is like a Shirley Temple with Scotch… OK, to dig into Passivhaus, let’s start with what Chris is working on right now. He’s more of an expert than I am.Chris: I’ll preface this by saying it’s all new to me. I’m not a consultant; I haven’t had the training. So, a passive house is…Phil: It’s not a passive solar house!Chris: Right. We get that a lot. A passive solar house recipe is a lot of thermal mass, a lot of solar glazing, you’re heating with the sun — that’s passive solar design. The basic philosophy of Passivhaus is you improve the thermal envelope — you reduce the heat demand — so you can eliminate the mechanical system. That’s your cost-effective measure: You put your money toward the thermal envelope. The recipe is thick insulation — walls of at least R-40; elimination of thermal bridging — minimizing conduction through studs; and airtightness. To severely restrict air leakage, you need a balanced energy recovery system. You actually have to submit recordings of how you balanced the system and what the settings are when you apply for the Passivhaus certificate. Windows are also a big part of the recipe — insulated glazing.Phil: Passivhaus takes thermal bridging to the next level, really examining every corner and every detail and every window.Chris: So, why do a Passivhaus?Phil: Buildings consume about 50 percent of our energy right now. If we want to change our world, we have to start with buildings. And who’s in charge of buildings?Chris: Um, me?Phil: Yeah, you are!Chris: All of us are…Phil: Yeah, architects and builders…Chris: The people who started the Passivhaus movement — their number-one reason? Climate change. That doesn’t resonate with the same power here in the States. There’s probably 30 percent of the community who won’t listen to that reason…Phil: It is sort of ephemeral, when people want to talk about payback immediately. And payback may be a tough part of the equation.Chris: Some people would be on board with the idea that the house is not just for them, but it’s also for the next generation. We’re trying to reduce carbon emissions, and some 40 to 50 percent of U.S. carbon emissions come from building centers — what houses consume and how we build them.Phil: It’s really about energy. It’s different from LEED; we’re not talking about recycled materials, just energy. The Germans have based this standard on a 90 percent reduction in energy consumption.Chris: Here’s a little history. In the 1970s, folks at the University of Illinois coined the term “superinsulation.” There was also a book by a Harvard physicist, William Shurcliff, called Super Insulated Houses and Double Envelope Houses, which always gets mentioned as an influential stepping stone. The folks in Europe looked very hard at what was going on at the University of Illinois and in this book. Sweden came up with rigorous energy standards, and a professor named Bo Adamson and a German physicist named Dr. Wolgang Feist designed the first Passivhaus, as proof that these standards were not only achievable, but could be surpassed and work. The heat load was 10 watts per square meter. Amory Lovins convinced Dr. Feist that he didn’t just have a science experiment, but something for the public; he could take this to the next step. So, in 1996, Dr. Feist founded the Passivhaus Institut, and using that first house as a model, came up with the Passivhaus standards. In 2003, I think, Katrin Klingenberg built the first passive house in the States—the Smith House.Phil: She got 14 inches of rigid insulation under the slab.Chris: People thought she went overboard…Phil: And then they saw the numbers and the feedback, and their eyes opened.Chris: Then she started the E-Co Lab to promote the Passivhaus idea. As these houses are built in the States, there’s a way to monitor and promote them. And then in 1998 along with builder Mike Kernagis, they founded Passive House Institute U.S., and now here we are with Passive House Alliances forming. There’s also a great resource now called Passipedia.com.[Part 2 of this episode is now available.] RELATED ARTICLES PODCAST: Passivhaus, Part 2 PODCAST: Passivhaus, Part 3PODCAST: Deep Energy Retrofits (1)PODCAST: Deep Energy Retrofits (2)PODCAST: Deep Energy Retrofits (3) Passivhaus Homes are Extremely Tight and Energy-EfficientPassive House: After Hours There’s a perceptible buzz in the air about the Passivhaus standard within the green building community. In fact, it’s becoming downright inescapable in these hallowed halls, forums, blogs, and seminars. So naturally it’s time for the less-than-hallowed reaches of the blogosphere, such as the Green Architects’ Lounge, to jump in and join the conversation.Before you press download or play Part 1, I’d like to point out a couple of things.

(It is great to be on our own, but we will miss the honor of sharing with Dr. Joe and Dr. John.) In my next post, I’ll leave links and instructions on subscribing to the new feed. I’ll also post instructions from the old feed itself.Also, we have a new e-mail address.

That is the very topic of Part 2 of this episode. But if you can’t wait, I urge you to click on this link to Dan Morrison’s GBA pagee, “Passivhaus Homes are Extremely Tight and Energy-Efficient.” That Web page is an aggregate source for links to GBA’s extensive information on the subject of the Passivhaus standard.I mention in this part of the episode that I’m working on a passive house in Maine. If you are interested in following along, my client has started a blog for it. We’re calling it EdgewaterHaus. I should also include this link to Passipedia and also to PHIUS.Stay tuned for Part 2, The Standards. Cheers.
Astronauts of the future may have a new foe to contend with: space bacteria. Scientists have found that Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a common contaminant of medical equipment and a cause of urinary tract infections, among other diseases, grows better in zero gravity than it does on Earth, even when starved of nutrients. The researchers grew the microbes in simulated urine both in an Earth-bound lab and onboard the space shuttle Atlantis (experimental setup shown) in July 2011. In some of the samples, the team dramatically reduced the concentrations of dissolved phosphate and oxygen to simulate conditions that might exist inside equipment used to recycle urine into water on spacecraft during long-duration flights. When nutrients were plentiful, the growth rates of the bacteria in zero-g conditions—and particularly, the concentrations of cells after 72 hours—were the same as those grown in the lab under normal conditions. But in samples with lower concentrations of phosphate and oxygen, the Earth-bound bacteria didn’t grow as quickly as they did when fully nourished, while those cultured in microgravity grew as prolifically as those provided with a full complement of nutrients, the researchers report online today in BMC Microbiology. Reasons for the disparity aren’t clear, the researchers say, but results suggest that bacteria introduced to space stations and spacecraft by people, given enough time, might grow to reach greater concentrations than they do in similar conditions on Earth, even if starved of nutrients. Besides helping scientists better understand the risks of P. aeruginosa colonizing equipment on spacecraft or causing diseases such as urinary tract infections among astronauts, the experiments may improve scientists’ ability to predict whether other species of bacteria might become more virulent in space.See more ScienceShots.

Drop a poison frog anywhere in its home range, and it can find the shortest way back to where it lives, according to a new study. This type of navigational ability is not common in amphibians, which are usually relatively sedentary. Poison frogs from the Amazon rainforest live among leaf litter on the forest floor, where they lay their eggs. Because tadpoles need water for development, parent frogs carry tadpoles on their backs to water-filled nurseries. The brilliant-thighed poison frog (Allobates femoralis, pictured) uses small puddles and pools on the ground. Males defend small territories about 15 m in diameter but have home ranges as large as 600 m in diameter. The researchers fitted the amphibians with tracking devices and dropped them more than 100 m from their homes. Frogs taken to a foreign territory appeared disoriented, but frogs dropped within their own home range made their way straight home using the most direct route, the team reports online today in Biology Letters. The animals spent no time learning landmarks along the way; they oriented themselves right at the start and took the shortest route. Water nurseries for tadpoles are temporary and widely spaced, which means parent frogs need an excellent map of their territories in order to drop off their offspring in the best ones, increasing their reproductive success. The journey away from home is also fraught with dangers, so a mental map is a huge advantage.
