first_imgAnita Guidera has lived and worked in County Donegal for 30 years, first with the Donegal People’s Press and later as the North West correspondent for the Irish Independent. In recent years she has worked as a freelance journalist and features writer for the Irish Independent and other media outlets. She is currently working on a number of Donegal-based multimedia projects. This is Anita’s My Donegal.Where is your favourite place in Donegal and why?I am fortunate that my work has taken me to virtually every nook and cranny in the county but even after 30 years, I am still discovering new and beautiful places. So, from one of our more recent adventures, my current favourite spot is the spectacular coastal route between Maghery and Marameelan in the Rosses. Although not great for driving, this is an ideal route for hiking or cycling, steeped in history with magnificent coastal and mountain views. Where in Donegal do you call home?Ramelton! Aside from a brief sojourn in Letterkenny and Churchill, Ramelton has been home to me for the past 30 years. Call me biased but I think you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere in Ireland which has gifted the world with more internationally influential people across all fields from politics and sport to religion, medicine, the arts and most recently a Nobel Prize winner. I love the warmth and welcoming nature of the people, the irrepressible pride of place and unbeatable community spirit.Who is the one person in Donegal that you look up to and why?I’m going a little off-script here and probably as a result of years spent working in courts, but my heroes (and yes, it’s plural) are Donegal’s unsung ones, those hugely courageous survivors of abuse who have had the courage to stand up to their abusers, often at great personal cost, and face them in court. What do you think is Donegal’s best tourist attraction?There are the obvious ones for good reason, like Sliabh Liag and Glenveagh National Park, but Donegal’s real trump card is its hundreds of kilometres of spectacular coastline, punctuated with idyllic beaches and coves and its untamed mountainous landscape.Do you prefer Donegal summers or Donegal winters?Both have their different appeal but at heart I’m more of a summer person.What would you do on your ideal day out in Donegal? There’s nothing I enjoy more than taking guests to parts of Donegal they have never been and experiencing the wonder of these places anew through their eyes. Typically this would entail taking the most scenic routes to get to the chosen destination. I always plan a round trip that takes in mountains, beach, coffee and lunch stops and that preferably ends with sunset a pint! Left to our own devices, it doesn’t get better than getting in the camper with my husband Don and heading off to uncover yet more of Donegal’s endless secrets, all the better if it involves kayak and bicycle as well!What is your favourite Donegal-made product?Nothing says Donegal quite like Donegal Tweed. I love how much a part of the history of the place it is and how its colours and textures mirror the landscape.Who is Donegal’s greatest ambassador around the world and why? Those who bring Donegal’s music and traditional crafts to an international audience are the best kind of ambassadors.Who is Donegal’s most successful businessperson in your opinion?It depends on how you measure success! I admire anyone who chooses Donegal as a location for their business, however large or small, despite its challenges, because of the unique quality of life it will afford them and their family. They deserve our support.Who is your favourite Donegal sportsperson of all time?I’m in awe that the legendary Dave Gallaher (1873-1917) who captained the All Black originals rugby team on their celebrated 1905-1906 tour of Britain, France and North America, was born a few doors up from where we live on Castle Street in Ramelton.What is your favourite Donegal restaurant?This is a tough one because there are so many exciting things happening on the Donegal food front right now. I love Coffee Time in Kilmacrennan because of their absolute commitment to making everything from scratch (baking bread, churning butter, curing meats..) and how they are breathing new life into old and lost Donegal dishes.If you could change one thing about Donegal what would it be?I would quite like if it rained less.What is your favourite Donegal saying or expression?No bother at all (and nothing is!)What is the biggest challenge facing the people of Donegal today?Resisting development that would be injurious to Donegal’s most valuable asset of all, its pristine land and seascape.What is your favourite Donegal food?Don’t make me choose one! Vegetables from Ballyholey farm, Calamari at the Seafood Shack, Killybegs, Fish tacos at Fisk, Downings, Scarpellos sour dough bread, turf smoked salmon from the Haven Smokehouse, the cheese burger at Coffee Time, Kilmacrennan, pizza at the Taproom, Rathmullan, chowder at Nancy’s Barn, Ballyliffin, mussels at The Bridge Bar Seafood Restaurant, Ramelton……Is there anything that really annoys you about Donegal or its people?The lack of mobile broadband connectivity.Do you have a favourite local band?Donegal is bursting with musical talent across all genres but I find myself drawn more and more to traditional music and how deeply connected it is to place and people. It’s hard to beat a traditional session at Hiudaí’s in Bunbeg, led by the inimitable Hiudaí, and including Howard Chu on fiddle!If you had a million euro to improve something in Donegal what would it be?Better mobile broadband connectivity would make it an even more attractive place to work and live.Daniel O’Donnell or Packie Bonner?Noel Cunningham!Is there anything about Donegal that you are very proud of?I’m proud of how welcoming and kind the people are.My Donegal – with journalist and writer Anita Guidera was last modified: August 4th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Anita GuideraMY DONEGALRameltonWriterlast_img read more

first_imgIf I do that same calculation in the reverse order, the results are very different, as shown below. The R-45 exterior insulation will save 57 MMBTU per year, and the R-14 cavity insulation saves only 0.6 MMBTU per year. So the exterior insulation saves about 91 times as much energy as the cavity insulation here.Looking at it this way, you might say, “Hey, we’ve already got 98.9% of the savings with the R-45. Why don’t we just skip the cavity insulation? We’ll get almost the same performance.” Just by reversing the order, the payback for all insulation types, even the two “bad” ones, drops to less than 20 years. You have to go well past R-60 to hit 20 years, but the insulation should last 50 years or more.What R-value should you use?One other thing I pointed out about this issue is the actual R-value used. Wilson’s graph goes all the way up to R-60. Do you ever need to use that much? We know about the diminishing returns of adding more insulation. When does it make sense to stop? Well, we now have some good guidance from the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS). RELATED ARTICLESMore 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 Planet What we want to know is the ratio of the savings when you calculate the R-45 exterior insulation first versus when you calculate it second. And those numbers are 57.3 MMBTU/year for R-45 first versus 6.54 MMBTU/year when you calculate the R-45 savings second. That ratio is shown at right.The conclusion here is that you get 8.8 times as much energy savings simply by calculating in the reversed order. Let’s apply that to Wilson’s results.Below is the graph Wilson presented for doing the calculation with the R-45 savings second. The effect on payback At the North American Passive House Conference in Philadelphia in September, I gave a presentation on the global warming impact of insulation, an issue I’ve discussed a few times since Alex Wilson wrote his paper on the topic back in 2010. In my presentation, I covered two different aspects of the issue: (i) the problem with Wilson’s payback calculations and (ii) using David White’s global warming impact calculator to make more informed decisions.I’ll discuss these two aspects of the issue in two articles, giving you the payback part here and the calculator in two weeks.Diminishing returns and paybackI don’t know why it took me so long to figure this part out, but I didn’t see it when I first wrote about Wilson’s payback calculations. Now it seems pretty clear. Let’s see if I can convince you.To calculate how many years it takes to pay back the cost of something, you need to know what the savings are per year. In this case, we’re not talking about money. We’re talking global warming emissions, but the principle of payback is the same. In Wilson’s calculations, he used a calculation method for energy savings that made two of the insulation types look really bad. (Those two were extruded polystyrene and closed-cell spray polyurethane foam.) That calculation method he used was to split the energy savings due to the highly insulated walls in their study into two parts. The initial energy savings went to the cellulose insulation in the 2×6 wall cavities, with a whole-wall R-value of R-14. Then they added more insulation of the various types they studied and calculated how much energy that “extra” insulation saved.That might make sense if you have an existing home with already-insulated 2×6 walls. But if you’re building a new home, I argue it doesn’t make sense. More on that in a bit.The reason that splitting the energy savings like that yields misleading results is due to diminishing returns. As you can see in the graph below, by the time a wall is insulated to R-14, it’s already got most of the energy savings it’s ever going to get. You can keep adding more, but you get less and less energy savings for each additional inch of insulation. The returns diminish. How do these results affect Wilson’s payback calculations? Let’s work through the calculation. The equation for simple payback is shown at right.Regardless of which order you use to calculate the energy savings, the cost in global warming impact should remain the same. The global warming emissions from the making of the insulation (all types) and the emissions from the blowing agents (foam) don’t change.So to calculate the effect of calculation order on payback, we need to adjust the denominator in that little equation. Calculating in a different orderLet’s take a look at some actual numbers. I used a total R-value of 59, split into two parts:  R-14 (representing the insulation in the cavities) and R-45 (the additional insulation on the exterior). When I calculate the amount of energy savings attributable to the R-14 first, I get the graph below. The cavity insulation saves about 51 MMBTU per year. The exterior insulation saves about 6.5 MMBTU per year. The cavity insulation saves 7.9 times as much energy as the exterior insulation. Calculating the R-45 savings first would lower all the lines on the graph by a factor of 8.8. Most of the insulation types are already really low so I didn’t adjust them. But if you lower the lines for extruded polystyrene (XPS) and closed-cell spray polyurethane foam (ccSPF), here’s what happens: The table at right shows the R-values needed to meet the PHIUS climate-specific standard in different climate zones. Up to Climate Zone 3, R-30 or less is all you need. For Climate Zones 4, 5, and 6, you can stop at about R-50. It’s only in the sparsely populated Climate Zones 7 and 8 that you need lots and lots of insulation, especially in Zone 8.When you look at graphs like Wilson’s, whether adjusted the way I’ve done or not, keep these numbers in mind.In case you’re wondering, the numbers I calculated above include only the energy savings due to heating.The baby and the bathwaterIf you buy into my argument, you should agree that Wilson’s conclusion to avoid XPS and ccSPF wasn’t warranted. If you don’t buy into my argument, please let me know why. I’m not saying those two materials are neutral in all respects in comparison to other insulation materials. There are certainly other issues to consider. But when we look just at energy savings and global warming impact, XPS and ccSPF aren’t as bad as it first seemed.Wilson’s study, however, is still important. As I pointed out in my last article on this topic, the real significance of what he did was to get us thinking about this issue and actually calculating global warming impact. David White of Right Environments in Brooklyn developed a spreadsheet calculator to do just this. And that’s the subject of the second part of my conference presentation, which I’ll discuss in my next article on this topic. Stay tuned.

first_imgLearn how to duplicate yourself with this easy cloning effect. You’ll be beside yourself with joy!Top image: Jesse Eisenberg in The DoubleCreating a cloning effect is surprisingly easy. In a nutshell: you can create a cloning effect by overlaying two videos, as long as the backgrounds stay the exact same. A simple mask tool or cropping effect will do the trick.For example if we composited the images below:We could end up with a pretty convincing cloning effect that uses only a single mask.Creating a Cloning Effect in After EffectsCreated by Film RiotThis video tutorial from Film Riot shows how easy it is to create a cloning effect using After Effects. The tutorial is fairly straightforward — just mask out the areas around your cloned subject. It should be noted: if you want to create a cloning effect where the subject passes in front of another clone, you will need to do some potentially time-consuming rotoscoping.Creating a Cloning Effect in FCPXCreated by fordeetvCloning in FCPX is very similar to cloning in any other video editing application. All you need to do is simply layer both of your clone layers on top of each other and crop out the unnecessary parts of the video frame.You don’t need After Effects or FCPX to create a cloning effect. This technique will work in virtually any video editing application… just look for the pen tool or crop effect.Four Things to Consider When Trying to Clone YourselfWhen you get down to it there isn’t a lot that goes into creating a quick cloning effect, but there are a few things you might want to consider.1. Color Correction/White BalanceWhen working with cloned videos, you need to make sure your video camera is set to a custom white balance. If the video is set to auto-white balance, you might run into issues where the color of your videos don’t match. If you encounter this problem in post, you can usually fix it by using an automatic color correction tool like the Fast Color Corrector in Premiere Pro.2. ExposureIn line with white balance, you need to make sure that the exposure between your two video clips is consistent. The only way to guarantee that the exposure is 100% similar is to throw your camera into manual. If you don’t set a unified exposure, you might run into some issues where your video has a harsh seam. In the example above, you can see how unbalanced exposures can lead to an unconvincing cloning effect.3. Overlapping ActionIt’s super easy to create a cloning effect if one of your subjects is on the left and one is on the right. But if your subjects actually crossover or interact with each other, you’ll run into some very tedious and cumbersome issues. If your subjects end up overlapping, you’ll either need to rotoscope one out (which can take a lot of time) or rethink the way you are shooting your clone video. If your video requires overlapping action, you’ll probably want to shoot on a green screen instead.4. Lock Down Your TripodEven the slightest movements in your tripod will completely make this effect fall apart. When working on a cloning effect, lock down your tripod and keep an eye on any crew members getting near the camera. It’s usually best to work a little faster than normal, just to ensure that none of your environment accidentally changes on the shoot.5. PlaybackIf your clones have a conversation with each other, then you’ll need to record and playback your footage while on set. I recommend using a small handheld camera that can record quick audio. This will prevent you from having to dump your A-camera footage to an external playback system between shots. Simply record a shot with two cameras and playback so your actor can see when they’re doing the second take. You may need to work on the timing a little in order to get it right.Have you ever recorded a cloning effect? Share how you did it in the comments below.last_img read more
