first_imgEduardo Vargas’ representative has admitted that Chelsea have not made a bid for the highly-rated winger.Vargas is widely tipped to leave Universidad de Chile in January and has been touted as a target for the Blues.But Mark Griffiths told Calcio Mercato: “We have not received an official offer from London. Maybe they will bid in the future, but to date there is nothing.”The Daily Mail say QPR have made the first move to sign Bobby Zamora from Fulham when the January transfer window opens.The paper suggest Rangers are willing to at least match the striker’s £45,000-a-week wages but the apparent £10m asking price could be a stumbling block.Zamora was left out against Swansea.He was left out of the Fulham squad for their defeat at Swansea on Saturday, fuelling reports of a bust-up between the player and manager Martin Jol.Sunderland and Aston Villa are also said to be interested in Zamora, who could return for Wednesday’s Europa League game against Odense.Meanwhile, Roman Pavlyuchenko’s agent has confirmed that Tottenham have offered the Russian striker to QPR.Oleg Artemov told Sovsport: “This is true that Tottenham have turned to QPR. I know about it.“Before talking about it – if Roman wants to be a QPR player or not – we have to consider every detail. Roman hasn’t thought about it yet.”This page is updated thoughout the day Follow West London Sport on Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgThat photo above is from my basement. In case you missed my last article, I just bought a 1961 ranch-style house in Atlanta and am embarking on the wonderful building science adventure of turning it into a high-performance home. Ultimately, I’d like to take it all the way to net-zero energy. My father-in-law, who sold us the house (Thanks, Stewart!), had some work done to improve it several years ago, so that water spot you see above is dry now. It just looks really nasty.Until this week, though, I didn’t know what source of moisture created the spot. Was it rainwater from outdoors leaking in through a penetration in the band joist? Was it a plumbing leak from the nearby kitchen? Was it groundwater climbing up the foundation wall by capillary action and finding an opening at this location?Actually, it was none of those. Let’s peel back the layers and see what we can find. Here’s another photo, this time with the ceiling tile pulled away.Water damage on the original ceiling in our basement.Here you can see that the current dropped ceiling isn’t the original one. At some earlier time, there was wood paneling in that corner where the moisture damage is. Above the paneling, you can see spray foam. But what else is going on up there? Let’s take a look.A supply duct is in the space right above the water damage.Well, there’s more foam, but if you look closely on the left side, you can see a bit of grey metal. That’s part of the duct that goes into the wall and delivers conditioned air to the den above.Ah, now we’re getting somewhere! In summer, that duct gets very cold when the air conditioner runs. And cold surfaces can condense water vapor out of the air if the dew point is high enough.Now, when you run an air conditioner and are able to achieve the ACCA recommended indoor design conditions of 75° F and 50% relative humidity, the dew point is 55° F. (That’s a handy fact for building science types to know, so you might want to remember it.) Also, the temperature of the air coming out of an air conditioner is usually between 55° F and 58° F.So, cold air in the duct at close to or slightly above the design dew point should not present a huge condensation problem. That is, this duct shouldn’t have gotten enough condensation to cause the damage you see in the above photos unless either the duct was much colder than 55° F or the dew point in the room was significantly higher than 55° F.I can guarantee you that duct, a good 20 ft. from the air conditioner, wasn’t much colder than 55° F. So that leaves the humidity much higher than it should have been. But where was the water vapor coming from? Here’s another look above the dropped ceiling.What is the source of the excess humidity that caused the water damage?The moisture-damaged area is in the left center part of the photo above. Those two copper water pipes go to the kitchen. (That 3/4-in. pipe on the left is the culprit responsible for the slow hot water delivery I mentioned in my last article.) Notice that the two pipes go through a gap that’s 1-1/2 in. high. Here’s another view of the gap.The source of the excess humidity was the crawlspaceThrough that gap and on the other side of that wall is a crawlspace. The outside of that part of the house has foundation vents, indicating that the house was built with a vented crawlspace. And anyone who knows a little building science can tell you that vented crawlspaces and the psychrometric chart are not friends. Translation: The vents in crawlspaces don’t solve moisture problems; they create them.That was the source of the moisture. I say “was” because about four years ago, PV Heating & Air (the same company that put the new HVAC system in our office) encapsulated the crawlspace. I don’t know the whole history of the work done on the house, but there’s also a small dehumidifier in the basement so the humidity down there is much better. The dew point in that part of the basement now is running at about 50° F, well below the design dew point.In short, the problem in this basement was that someone back in the history of the house did not understand the first rule for preventing humidity damage:Keep humid air away from cool surfaces.Had they followed that rule, the ceiling tile would still be fine. The wood paneling above it wouldn’t be falling apart. And the duct above wouldn’t have become an accidental dehumidifier.Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is a speaker, writer, building science consultant, and the author of the Energy Vanguard Blog.

first_imgIndia will hope the likes of Mohammad Siraj, Basil Thampi and Jaydev Unadkat support Jasprit Bumrah as they seek to extend their domination over Sri Lanka in the T20 International series.You can watch Live Cricket Streaming of India vs Sri Lanka, 1ST T20I, Cuttack on Hotstar from 7:00 PM today:India, who demolished Sri Lanka 9-0 across formats in their own den earlier this year, won the three-Test series and ODI series on the islanders’ return visit. The hosts have rested some of their key players ahead of the tour of South Africa.Consequently, three young pacers along with the likes of Deepak Hooda and Washington Sundar have been included in the team.Sundar made his ODI debut during India’s second ODI against Sri Lanka in Mohali last week.India’s batting will heavily rely on skipper Rohit Sharma, who will have KL Rahul for company at the top. Having lost his first match as captain, Sharma’s record double hundred led a 141-run rout in Mohali and he will look to continue that form in the shortest format. A good start will be crucial for India to minimise the workload on the middle and lower order, which will be steered by Dhoni whose ability was doubted in the series against New Zealand.Saurashtra left-arm pacer Unadkat, who last played in a T20I against Zimbabwe in June last year, has been recalled and India have three first-timers in Washington Sundar, Basil Thampi and Deepak Hooda. Baroda all-rounder Hooda had scored the fourth fastest Twenty20 century (108) by an Indian during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in February. It remains to be seen, however, if he’s handed his debut cap with India already having two finishers in Dhoni and Hardik Pandya.advertisementIn the pace department, death bowling specialist Bumrah will shoulder the responsibility after Bhuvneshwar Kumar was rested. Kerala pacer Thampi has shown his ability to bowl yorkers.With consistency during his Gujarat Lions stint in the IPL. While India will have a bit of concern in the pace department, Yadav and Chahal are expected to deliver. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have lost five T20Is on the trot, starting from the match against Bangladesh in April.For the visitors, Upul Tharanga was in imperious form during his 95 in the third ODI and he would be the key for Sri Lanka. Former skipper Angelo Mathews, who scored a century in the second ODI, would be the vital cog in Sri Lankan wheel. The islanders would also hope that Niroshan Dickwella strikes form to give some stability to the middle order. Their otherwise ordinary bowling looked exceptional in Dharmasala where they bundled out India for 112 but since then, they have managed to take six wickets in two matches as they have to buck up in all the departments of the game.”We had a good chance to beat India in India, but we couldn’t execute with our middle order. We have to think about the T20Is, everything is past, we have to think about the present,” Sri Lanka captain Perera has said in Visakhapatnam.Squads:India: Rohit Sharma (C), K L Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj, Basil Thampi and Jaydev Unadkat.Sri Lanka: Thisara Perera(C), Upul Tharanga, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Janith Perera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella, Asela Gunaratne, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dasun Shanaka, Chaturanga de Silva, Sachith Pathirana, Dananjaya De Silva, Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando and Dusmantha Chameera.last_img read more
