’E’ effect for water

first_imgHoshizaki has launched a new chemical-free cleaning system, which takes ordinary tap water and transforms it into Alkaline ’E’ Water and Acidic ’E’ Water. The ROX machine can use these two water types for almost all cleaning and sanitising requirements, without the use of chemicals and detergents. It is available in two models – the ROX-10WB-E which produces 0.7-1.5 litres of each water per minute, and the ROX-20TB-E, which produces 1.5-3 litres of each water per minute.The machine has a central tank, which takes tap water, with the addition of salt, and uses electrolysis and a negatively charged terminal on one side (for Alkaline ’E’ Water) and a positively charged terminal on the other side (for Acidic ’E’ Water). The Alkaline water is suitable for dissolving proteins and oils, whereas the acidic water is suitable for sanitising and for the removal and control of bacteria, which the company says is 80 times more effective than chemical cleaning. The two types of water can be used individually or at the same time and do not leave any residue.The two models are available for sale, lease and rental and are covered by a two-year guarantee.[http://www.hoshizaki.com]last_img read more

They said they fell in love with the community and were quick to decide on a design from builder Escape Homes with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and double garage. “We’re confident the exceptional results will continue with The Village release because of its southeastern corner position giving buyers ease of access to the community’s facilities and the wider Walloon township,” she said.

Record $75,000-plus in contingencies awarded to IMCA drivers in 2014

first_imgVINTON, Iowa – More than $75,000 in contingency awards will go to IMCA drivers, based on their participation in sign-up programs or having met other requirements unique to individual programs in 2014. “The value of contingency awards and cash prizes continues to increase each season,” noted IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder. “I would encourage our drivers to redeem any mid-season or season-ending certificates as soon as possible, and to continue supporting the businesses that support them.” Certificates, cash and some product awards will be presented during the national awards banquet later this month in Lincoln, Neb. The rest will be mailed directly to drivers beginning in early December. The following contingency awards were not necessarily determined by actual regional finish, but by either driver sign-up sheets or other unique requirements. For all contingency awards winners where it applies, their actual finishing position, either regional or national, is in parenthesis. All awards are product certificates unless noted otherwise.AFCO Racing ProductsTop 3 Modified drivers in each region: 1) $250, 2) $150, 3) $50.

Men’s tennis defeats UCLA and Stanford to win Pac-12

first_imgThe USC men’s tennis squad will head into the NCAA tournament as conference champions. The team took down UCLA and Stanford last week in Ojai en route to its first Pac-12 Championship since 2012.USC automatically advanced directly to the semifinals of the Pac-12 Championship thanks to its No. 2 seed and Stanford, as the No. 1 seed, advanced directly to the semifinals as well. UCLA and California, the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds respectively, didn’t have to play until the quarterfinals. The first two matchups of the tournament were No. 5 Oregon against No. 8 Arizona and No. 6 Washington against No. 7 Utah.During the first round on Wednesday, both of the higher seeds won their matchups. Oregon defeated Arizona by a score of 4-1 and Washington shut out Utah 4-0. The next day, both Oregon and Washington were knocked out of the tournament by their fellow opponents. California squeezed by Oregon 4-3 while UCLA swept Washington 4-0.With the win on Thursday, UCLA was set to play USC on Friday in the semifinals.  The Trojans made quick work of the Bruins, eliminating them from the tournament with a 4-1 victory. The match began strong for the Trojans when seniors Yannick Hanfmann and Roberto Quiroz, who are ranked No. 3 by the ITA in doubles play, completely shut down the Bruin pairing of Mackenzie McDonald and Martin Redlicki with a score of 8-0.  The Trojans secured the double point soon after when the pairing of junior Max de Vroome and senior Eric Johnson defeated Joseph Di Giulio and Karue Sell by a score of 8-2.The Trojans carried their momentum into singles play, capturing the first singles point when sophomore Nick Crystal defeated Di Giulio 6-2, 6-1. Then, McDonald defeated No. 11-ranked Hanfmann 6-3, 6-4 to give UCLA what would turn out to be its lone match point.  Senior Jonny Wang put the Trojans back in the win column when he took down Sell by a score of 6-4, 7-6 (1).  De Vroome punched the ticket to the final for the Trojans after coming back from a first set loss to win his match against Austin Rapp in three sets with a score of 6-7, 6-1, 6-3.  Quiroz’s match against Redlicki and Johnson’s battle with Dennis Mkrtchian were suspended following De Vroome’s victory.Stanford ended Cal’s tournament by beating them 4-1 in the semifinals, so the stage was set for a showdown final between No. 1 Stanford and No. 2 USC. A few weeks earlier, Stanford had taken down USC 4-3. USC also had beaten Stanford earlier in the year during a non-conference match-up by a score of 6-1, however.The Trojans struck first in doubles play, with Crystal and freshman Thibault Forget claiming an 8-2 victory over Nolan Paige and David Wilczynski.  Stanford fought back, tying the doubles score 1-1 when the No. 13-ranked pairing of John Morrissey and Robert Stineman bested Hanfmann and Quiroz 8-6. The deciding match went to Stanford when Tom Fawcett and Maciek Romanowicz took down de Vroome and Johnson by a score of 8-5.With Stanford winning the doubles point, the Trojans knew that they had to win at least four of their six singles matches to win the Pac-12 Championship.  Wang was the first Trojan to help contribute to those four wins, beating Paige by a score of 6-2 two sets in a row to give the Trojans their first match point. Quiroz then put the Trojans on top 2-1 with a two set (6-4, 6-4) victory over Wilczynski.  The Trojans wouldn’t enjoy that lead for long as Stanford’s David Hsu knotted the score at 2-2 shortly after when he took down De Vroome 7-5, 6-4.  Fawcett then gave Stanford a 3-2 lead when he came back from a first set loss to defeat Hanfmann by a score of 2-6, 6-1, 6-2.With the pressure on them, both Johnson and Crystal needed to win their matches for a Trojans victory while Stanford only needed one of their two remaining players, Romanowicz and Morrissey, to win their match to clinch the Pac-12 Championship.  Crystal kept the Trojans alive by defeating Romanowicz in two sets by a score of 7-6, 6-4.  Thus, the Pac-12 Championship came down to Johnson’s match with Morrissey.  The match went to three sets, and it was Johnson who had the stronger final set, ultimately winning the match 6-2, 4-6, 6-2.  The victory gave the Trojans both a come-from-behind 4-3 win over Stanford and the Trojans the title of 2015 Pac-12 Champions.With the victory, the No. 8-ranked Trojans also earned the automatic qualifier from the Pac-12 into the NCAA Tournament, where the Trojans will try to reach the final goal of winning their sixth national championship in seven years. The Trojans will begin their journey during the NCAA First and Second Rounds, which will be held May 8 and 9.last_img read more

Whicker: School is just beginning for the young, leftover Lakers

first_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers But McGee also called the young Lakers “awesome” and said he was impressed that everybody “gets pissed” over losing, even if it’s 5-on-5.So will it work and how will it look?“There’s a lot of rotations I have written down,” Walton said. “Even when you break it down to small ball, there’s two or three different ones that I want to see.“There’s a lot of guys we can throw at you. We want to run because we’ll have a lot of guys who can push it. I’m not desperate to have a set rotation. I’m not looking for a starting five on Day One and keeping it. Whoever’s playing well is going to play.”But what happens in the final four minutes of a teetering game when Ball, Ingram and maybe Rondo have to spread out and defer to James? He makes everybody better, sure, but he takes up a lot of the frame.Will Kuzma become more of a spot shooter and driver, and will Hart’s willingness to do so many things somehow work against him?Or will Walton find a Lineup of Death similar to the one that has won titles in Golden State, a bunch of streamlined speed racers that can strike for 12-0 runs at important times? And if he does, who is the purple-and-gold Draymond Green?Ingram said he hadn’t thought about the distribution of roles, “not once.” What he had thought about was the idea that James, Rondo and Ball, three of basketball’s leading visionaries, would be on the same court.“And then you’ve got me and Kuz would shoot,” Ingram joked. “But to have three guys together, the way they see the court. … We’ve talked about how we can play with each other.”Hart (2016 NCAA title, Villanova) and McGee (2018 NBA title, Golden State) are the two most recent champions in the room.“You have to work at chemistry,” Hart said. “It’s going to take a little time. But I don’t want the young guys just to go along and listen to the veterans and do everything they say. I want us to listen, but I also want to speak our minds when we see something.Related Articles Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed EL SEGUNDO — LeBron James, as grave and opaque as a Defense Department spokesman, said the Lakers will be “picking up from scratch.”Luke Walton, all but promising he would be delivering more smiles on this eve of training camp than on any other day, said the Lakers “will be starting all over.”James compared it to “the first day of school.” Walton compared it to “the day before Christmas.”The common theme, reinforced by a Media Day horde that might have outnumbered the crowd at the Inauguration, was about the process of building. Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years center_img “We’ve all bought into this. When that happens, the chemistry is easier. You can see that Lonzo is stronger. I’ve been working with (assistant coach) Miles Simon to improve my handle. Kuz has improved his game. He’s making shots in our pick-up games that make me wonder if there’s anybody in the league who can stop him.”Rondo was relaxed and chatty. Ball was more effusive than normal, maybe because of newfound fatherhood, maybe because of his new, swagger-inducing upper torso.“Everybody’s saying my shot is new but I’ve just gotten a lot stronger,” Ball said. “I’ve moved it a little more toward the middle but it’s still on the left side. It’s easier to get it to the rim.“I’ve watched Rondo for a long time, from the time he was with Boston. He’s the smartest guy on the court at all times. We had a tape session and it probably was the best one I’ve ever had. Listening to him is very powerful.”The young Lakers still need to learn and listen, even though they’re in advanced placement. True, they’re the ones who know where the bodies are buried, but all too often, it was them.

Blog Review: Up Hill House

first_imgDecember 2009“I’ve been doing lot of reading lately about superinsulated net-zero houses and passive solar houses… As the articles say, why spend tens of thousands of dollars on a heating system when you only need to spend a few hundred a year? If you superinsulate, it makes sense to incorporate a right-sized heating system. So out with the masonry stove (sadly, I really like them) and the radiant floor (again, sadly). In with the small wood stove and some other small backup space heating system, yet to be determined.” September 2010“We have chosen our windows. If you remember earlier posts about our criteria for windows (April Update and Window Shopping), you’ll know that we were looking for low U-values (more insulation), high SHGC values (more heat from the sun), and low dollar values (more money in our wallets). We found 2 out of 3. Accurate Dorwin (based in Winnipeg, Canada) is going to make us windows with two different types of glazing. Our south-facing casement windows will have a 0.24 U-value and 0.47 SHGC. All other windows will have a 0.20 U-value and a 0.44 SHGC. The fixed window units are the most efficient with a 0.18 U-value. All values are whole window values. Serious came in second.” December 2008“The program is for a very small house (and barn, more on that in a future post), one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, living, dining and unfinished basement. We’re trying to keep it around 1,000 sq. feet, and as green as makes sense. No surprise, budget is the main driver. We want to do this without taking out a mortgage and by doing as much of the work as we can ourselves. Not just to save money, but because its just plain fun for us.” May 2010“It was a very hard decision (over 2 years in the making) but we’ve come to the realization that a wood stove is not in the cards for this house. We will however, have a patio fire pit, and reserve the right to maybe add an interior fireplace at a later date.” June 2010“We are the proud owners of a brand spank’n new hole in the ground. Foundation dig is complete. In other news, I was able to position the house precisely on the site this weekend, thanks to the new pin the surveyors placed on our boundary line last week. Which means I can now finish the site plan.“We also heard back from the engineer this weekend. Ugh, lots of work to interpret his calculations into the plans. But it’s good that we hired someone. It really was more complicated than I could do myself.” Larry and Jill Burks are self-described city folks building a house in upstate New York. It’s not any old house, but a 1,200-sq.-ft., superinsulated home that they hope will generate more power than it consumes in a year — a “net-positive” house.Their blog, Up Hill House, is the step-by-step story of how the house gets built, beginning in June 2008 when they bought 50 acres of land and a cabin near the town of Cambridge, N.Y.The couple had been looking for a place in New York City, but the best they could do was a 400-sq.-ft. apartment in Brooklyn that was on the market for $400,000. “Maybe it was my years of studying architecture, but I could not see spending the next 30 years paying a mortgage on a small soulless apartment with no redeemable architectural character,” Larry writes. “Not to mention no outdoor space. That’s when it hit me. This is crazy! There has to be another choice.”This change of direction helped launch their project, described in dozens of entries over the last 33 months. Larry offers an extremely detailed look at how the house was planned and how it’s being built, writing about everything from window selection to sitework and heating options. The tone is expert. It turns out that while Larry has an architecture degree, he designs “easy to use Web applications,” not houses. The couple has already moved out of New York to be closer to the project, and will live in the house fulltime once it’s completed.The two-bedroom, one-bath house should be finished in May, if all goes according to plan, and come in at about $142 a square foot. The house comes with R-44 walls and a R-75 roof, along with a 6.9-kW photovoltaic array.The blog can be read in two ways, either chronologically or by topic. So, if you want to follow the project as it unfolds, just start with Larry’s June 2008 post and work your way forward as the couple develops plans for the house, clears the site, and sees the house take shape. If you’re more interested in specific topics, such as windows and doors (11 posts), energy calculations (eight posts), or the foundation (eight posts), Larry has made that possible, too.It’s an engaging mix of technical and non-technical information, both personable and informative. And it gets to the inherent complexities of building a high-performance house. January 2011“As the snow piles up outside, I have turned my thoughts to Spring. Not only because it’s warmer and nature is waking from its long slumber, but also because I hope we will be conducting our first blower door test by then. Specifically I’ve been considering what type of results I should be expecting from the blower door tests, and how to interpret them.“We made the decision early on to build an air-tight house. This guided our choice of building materials, Zip system and tape for the exterior sheathing, gaskets and acoustical sealant to seal all other connections, and foam to seal gaps at the rims, windows and doors. The blower door test will help us seal any gaps we missed. But what target should we aim for? How do we know when the house it tight enough?”last_img read more

Ngannou could go from homeless to UFC heavyweight champ

I don’t like it.”Ngannou found his way in his 20s and eventually visited the MMA Factory where he met his eventual coach, Fernand Lopez. Lopez would convince Ngannou to forget about boxing and drilled him in jiujitsu and wrestling and a career in MMA.Ngannou made his pro debut in 2013 and was in UFC about two years later in December 2015.Ngannou, who speaks French and English, has not forgot his past and was offended when President Donald Trump reportedly used a profane term to describe African countries last week.“All those people that he was talking about are people like us,” he said. “It’s kind of difficult to accept a thing like that. For myself, the goal for me was to lift my country and (to) see someone who just wants to break that dream, that hope for people (is tough). This guy is like a shame for America. America was built from immigration. America is the country that the world, the poor countries look at and, not expect America to give them something, but just to look at them as an example and build their own country and get a better situation.”Ngannou’s family is still in Cameroon and he wanted his mother and a 17-year-old brother (“he’s very smart”) to come live in the United States.Up first, a shot at the title.Standing in his way is Miocic (17-2), who has a date with heavyweight history and will set the UFC record for consecutive title defenses in the division at three with a victory.Ngannou has one plan — for that UFC title to get wrapped around his waist.“Life beat me up a lot of times,” Ngannou said, “and I want to take my revenge.” He’s not afraid to go face-to-face with anyone — even against his fellow Cameroon native, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid. Ngannou, 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, was absolutely dwarfed by the 7-2 Embiid in a visit Thursday morning at Sixers shootaround .Ngannou was ready to pull on his MMA gloves.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“He should be my next opponent,” Ngannou said.“I think I’d kick his ass,” Embiid said, laughing.

It was all about to connect. And I connected.”Blink and you might miss the crowning of a new champ.“Good for him. He got a great knockout,” Miocic said.Ngannou’s rise was hardly as swift.Much like his Embiid, who only started playing basketball at 15, Ngannou was a late-bloomer to mixed martial arts. He was raised as one of five children in the poverty-stricken village of Batie and was only 12 when he went to work in the sand mines to support his family. Basically raised by a single mother, Ngannou was a Tyson fan and wanted to box, so he dabbled and drained in the sport for a few years. He knew there was little future in fighting stuck in the mines and realized if he wanted to become serious about the sport, he’d have to leave Cameroon.“If it was easy for me, I would have stayed in Cameroon,” Ngannou said. “I like to be close to my family. But one day, I felt like I didn’t have a choice. I left everything of my 26 years life behind me, closed the door and go somewhere where I don’t know what it looks like.”His new home was Paris. But Ngannou had no friends, no plan, no support system and lived on the streets. Ngannou worked in the kitchen for a humanitarian organization that helped homeless in Paris.“Being in the street in Paris, it wasn’t scary,” he said. “I embraced that situation because I knew worse than that. I’ve been in a worse situation than that one. Being in the streets in Paris was more comfortable than almost all the situations I’ve been though in my life.”And the worst situation?
