The 10th-ranked Brazilian is now 27-9-0.No. 2-ranked flyweight Henry “The Messenger” Cejudo, looking for another title shot against Demetrious Johnson, nailed Wilson Reis of Brazil square in the jaw, dropping him to the mat, then pounded him into a knockout 25 seconds into the second round.Swedish veteran Ilir Latifi lived up to his Sledgehammer nickname, lifting up and pile-driving Australian upstart Tyson Pedro head first to the mat in a light heavyweight tilt. Latifi won by unanimous decision.Gilbert Melendez, dropping down to make his debut in featherweight, was cheered as he staggered up repeatedly from the canvas while taking a hellacious flurry of kicks and punches from eighth-ranked Jeremy Stephens.

LISCR FC head Coach Tapha Manneh serving as guest on Prime Sports Track (Photo Credit: T Kla Wesley Jr)Having returned from his vacation in the Gambia to prepare for the new season, LISCR head coach Tapha Manneh has told his players that he does not have space for indiscipline players ahead of the new season.Coach Manneh said no level of skills and brilliance from a player that has no discipline will guarantee his stay in his team. He signaled the warning during the team’s first gathering since they won the ‘double titles.’According to the Gambian, it is based on the output of the players that will determine their stay with the club; therefore it should be teamwork between him and his players for their success.“You can play full 90 minutes very well, but without discipline, you cannot be a part of my team,” Coach Manneh said.“I don’t joke when it comes to my profession. You signed a contract and I signed mine. It is based on your output that will extend or terminate your contract. So, as a player, before you try to get mine terminated, no matter how many seasons you have signed with the club, I will recommend yours to be terminated,” he said.In another development, Coach Manneh has revealed that his tough opponent during last season’s campaign was Keitrace FC. He made the disclosure when he appeared as a guest on the Prime FM weekend sports program ‘Prime Sports Track’.He said out of the top clubs, including FC Fassell, Monrovia Club Breweries, and Barrack Young Controller, his team found it difficult to overcome the Gardnerville outfit. LISCR’s single defeat in last season was against Keitrace (3-2) in the FA Cup semifinal’s first leg unbeaten record on July 28 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.LISCR who will be representing Liberia at next year’s CAF Champions League, have so far signed eight new players, including four Gambians. The team will have a huge task to perform in the upcoming season to defend their double titles and properly represent Liberia at the continental club competition.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Judge Keenan Johnson:A CIRCUIT Court Judge has warned that jurors who fail to turn up in court will be pursued by the law.Judge Keenan Johnson issued his order at the sitting of the court in Donegal Town after a number of jurors failed to show for a jury panel being selected to hear a case. A number of people who did turn up and gave legitimate reasons as to why they couldn’t serve on the jury were excused by the court.However failing to turn up, and not making contact with the Court Service is an offence.Judge Johnson said the high number of absentees from the court was “just not good enough”.He told juror panel members who did did turn up: “I am directing that unless there were good reasons for them not being here, that summonses should issue against them for non-appearance.“There were far too many absentees and it is not fair on those who did turn up.”Under the 1976 Juries Act, a judge can impose fines on members of the public who fail to appear for jury panel selection.The Courts Service will now pursue all those who failed to appear for the Circuit Court cases.JUDGE IN WARNING TO JURORS WHO FAIL TO TURN UP IN COURT was last modified: October 16th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Failure to appearfinesjudge keenan johnsonJurorjury

Air New Zealand has introduced a world first for children flying unaccompanied, giving parents and guardians the opportunity to follow the steps in their journey.Children travelling alone on Air New Zealand services will now receive an Airband™ at check-in as part of the service. The wristband is embedded with a chip which is scanned at key stages of the journey to trigger text notifications to up to five nominated contacts.Air New Zealand General Manager Customer Experience Carrie Hurihanganui says Airband is a great example of the airline investing in technology to enhance the customer experience.“We know that having your child travel on their own can be a nervous time for both children and their guardians. While our staff have always taken great care of children travelling solo, we identified that there was an opportunity to enhance the experience for kids while at the same time giving caregivers further peace of mind and visibility of their journey,” says Ms Hurihanganui.“We believe this is the first time this type of technology has been used by an airline anywhere in the world for the purpose of providing caregivers greater peace of mind when their child is travelling alone. We have been trialling it across our network over recent months and the feedback from parents and guardians has been very positive with many welcoming the additional reassurance of knowing where in the journey their child is.”The airline’s new service applies to all children aged between five and 11 who’re travelling alone – but those aged up to 16 years can choose to opt in.The new service is being offered on a complimentary basis through until 3 February 2016. Bookings made from this date will incur a fee of $15 per child for each one way domestic journey, or $40 per child for each one way international journey.

I recently learned that in Georgia, as well as much of the rest of the country, Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC), the fuel that drives much of the affordable housing industry, strongly encourages green building certification for projects that obtain these credits. Without this connection to tax credits, we would see many fewer certified green homes and apartments, and these affordable developers would not be the leaders in green building that they are today.Realizing that this segment of the housing industry is one of the few seeing much action, I recently attended the annual conference of the Georgia Affordable Housing Coalition (GAHC) in beautiful and historic Savannah.Funny money?I met a lot of great people at the conference and learned more than I wanted to know about the financing of affordable housing deals. Being a sticks-and-bricks kind of guy, I never paid much attention to the intricacies of project financing, and more specifically, the role that tax credits play.The beginning of my education on the subject started with a casual conversation about power company rebates for multifamily projects. I was chatting with a developer and mentioned that a project I was looking at was eligible for about $300,000 in rebates for energy-efficiency improvements. His response was, “How does it affect his basis?”Being a logical, straightforward sort of person, it never occurred to me that getting cash rebates for building renovations could somehow not be desirable. But I was mistaken. It seems that the tax credits on affordable projects are based on the depreciable basis in a project and they are available for a ten-year period following construction. Developers can use these credits to offset income, or if they are non-profits, they sell them to other entities for cash. In some cases, it is better to not receive rebates and other incentives as they may have less value than the tax credits they displace. There are apparently teams of accountants and consultants that run these numbers for developers, helping them figure out the best way to maximize their profits.More green building knowledge neededOK, enough high finance for me. What really struck me at the conference was that even though almost everyone there was involved in green building through having projects certified, there was remarkably little in-depth knowledge of the subject.While I consider myself pretty knowledgeable on the subject, at most conferences I find myself somewhere in the middle of the green building knowledge spectrum. At this event, I was pretty much the only expert in the crowd, something I found both fun and frightening.One panel on green building included a construction manager who was clearly out of his element on the subject. He made several incorrect and misleading statements about various insulation products, leading me to speak up and clarify his points for the audience. He really got my back up by pointing out that fiberglass batts are so much less expensive than spray foam that it’s hard to justify the extra expense. When I pointed out that when you look at overall building performance, and the work required to get different insulation products to perform to equivalent levels, then the costs are much closer, there was, thankfully, acknowledgment that first costs are not the only factor to consider.Strutting my own stuffI was on a panel with a geothermal contractor, a large PV installer, an architect, and a representative of a local affordable housing agency. Most of the questions involved the complexity of making PV and geothermal work on affordable projects, how the incentives affected their basis, and net metering and feed-in tariff issues.I was given an opportunity to rant a little, and as I wrapped up my points on existing buildings, suggesting that implementing measures like retrofitting wall insulation, window replacement, and HVAC equipment replacement without first improving ductwork were generally bad strategies (in the South at least), the moderator cheerily thanked me for contradicting everything they had learned in their careers.At this conference I learned quite a bit about how the affordable housing industry works, met lots of nice people, and made many good contacts that may lead to some future work. It is encouraging that so much affordable housing is certified green, and even though they are not necessarily the most knowledgeable green builders, they are certainly helping move the industry forward while providing healthy and efficient housing for our most needy citizens.
Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Carter Scott was one of the first builders bold enough to build a cold-climate home heated by only two ductless minisplit units (one in the downstairs living room, and one in the upstairs hallway). Skeptics predicted that the unheated bedrooms would be cold and uncomfortable. Yet Scott was confident that the home’s excellent thermal envelope — with high-R walls, triple-glazed windows, and low levels of air leakage — would keep the homeowners comfortable even when the bedroom doors were closed.Scott owns a construction company called Transformations in Townsend, Massachusetts. He built his pioneering two-minisplit house in Townsend in 2008; the inclusion of a 5.7-kW roof-mounted photovoltaic array made it into a zero-energy house.The skeptics’ “cold bedroom” predictions were unfounded. “We have since built several houses in which the upstairs minisplit unit isn’t even being used until the outdoor temperature drops below 20 degrees,” Scott said. “Typically the response from homeowners is, ‘Wow, these houses have even indoor temperatures’ and ‘these houses are quiet.’ And the fact that there are no utility bill makes people excited.”A ductless minisplit is a type of air-source heat pump that can provide space heating as well as air conditioning. Most of the ductless minisplits sold in the U.S. are manufactured in Japan or South Korea; the best known brands are Daikin, Fujitsu, and Mitsubishi.The first zero-energy house built by Scott’s company, Transformations, was designed by architect Ben Nickerson. Dubbed the Needham model, it was built at 18 Coppersmith Way in Townsend in 2008. Here are the home’s specifications:In 2009, this home won the second prize ($15,000) in a utility-sponsored contest called the Zero Energy Challenge. The home has since received plenty of media attention, including attention from GBA; see, for example:Scott gave a presentation on his recent projects at the Sixteenth Annual… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.
