Balloting for ‘Horse of the Year’ and other awards not based on statistics by a 17-member panel comprising members of the press and Caymanas Track Limited (CTL) officials, is under way and early indications are that the 2015 derby and Diamond Mile winner SEEKING MY DREAM will be crowned ‘Horse of the Year’ by unanimous acclaim. Voting will conclude tomorrow inside the CTL Racing Office at Caymanas Park.Trained by 15-time champion Wayne DaCosta for Member of Parliament Derrick Smith, SEEKING MY DREAM enjoyed a record-breaking season. He won the two richest races on the calendar – the Cal’s Jamaica Derby in June with a purse of $7 million and the inaugural running of the Supreme Ventures Diamond Mile on December 5 which offered a record purse of $13.5 million, both with the season’s leading money-winning rider Omar Walker aboard.Having finished second in the 2000 Guineas, St Leger and CTL Invitational Mile on November 14, SEEKING MY DREAM pushed his 2015 earnings to a record $14.2 million, well clear of stable-companion PERFECT NEIGHBOUR in second with $5.1 million and Superstakes winner FRANFIELD in third with $4.9 million.Bred by Sherman Clachar and Norman Gordon, the chestnut colt by Seeking The Glory out of the 2008 Triple Crown winner and Horse of the Year Alsafra was never worse than second in 10 starts last year – winning five races and finishing second in five as well.SEEKING MY DREAM should also be named champion three-year-old, champion middle-distance performer and champion native-bred horse.hoping for top awardsAs far as DaCosta is concerned, his horses should sweep the top awards. Speaking at Caymanas Park on New Year’s Day, the trainer said:”Seeking My Dream is unchallenged for Horse of the Year, having won the two biggest races on the calendar last year, while Perfect Neighbour who captured important races such as the Gold Cup and Harry Jackson Memorial Cup looks a cinch for first runner up, champion stayer and champion four-year-old and up”, he predicted.”The second runner-up award could be close between my horse Poker Star and the consistent grade-one campaigner Uppa Tune, but Poker Star is a safe bet for champion sprinter and Future King the obvious choice for champion two-year-old,, argued DaCosta.The Horse of the Year Committee will also choose the most improved trainer from a list of four nominees – Harry Parsard (30 wins), Donovan Plummer (19 wins), Marlon Anderson and Neive Graham with 17 wins each as well as most improved jockey from a list comprising Robert Halledeen (72 wins), Paul Francis (52), Shamaree Muir (43), Aaron Chatrie (38) and Jevanne Erwin (36).
The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has trained about 45 farmers including forest users on the preventive measures of the deadly human killer disease— Ebola.The FAO three-day interactive training was held at the conference hall of the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata with participants drawn from five counties. The training workshop started Monday, 15 and ended on Wednesday, September 17, 2014.Participating counties include Bomi, Margibi, Grand Cape Mount, Grand Bassa, and Montserrado Counties.Speaking to the Daily Observer in Kakata, the National Consultant for Rapid Response against EVD, FAO, Dr. Etagegnehu D. Belayneh, said the training is part of FAO way to create awareness on the EVD for farmers and forest users with special emphasis for native people (farmers) who cannot read and write and have no chance to get healthcare and hygienic information easily.She furthered that the awareness help create bridge linkage between the communities and EVD taskforce in each county as well as district for fast reporting of contact cases and contact tracing. According to the FAO National Consultant for Rapid Response against EVD, participants are trained to help train other farmers who were not opportune to form part of the training exercise.She said participants are expected to get back to the communities and to pass on knowledge learnt from the training to others especially community volunteers, women groups, youth for fast transmission of the EVD prevention and control messages already developed by MOH and its international partners.Dr. Belayneh places the overall objectives of the FAO/UN as supporting the Liberian government ongoing effort in the country to fight against the deadly pandemic “Ebola”. She said the training is being carried out in three regions including: region one, Kakata with five counties, Gbarnga City, Bong County, and Grand Gedeh County. The FAO training is under the theme: Rapid Response Against Ebola Prevention and control. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
…seismic data survey ongoing to map out available oil blocksThe remaining blocks available for oil and gas extraction will be distributed through a competitive tendering exercise; the first of which is expected early in 2020. This is according to Head of the Energy Department, Dr Mark Bynoe, at a press conference on Monday.Energy Department Head, Dr Mark BynoeAccording to Bynoe, operators can come individually or as consortiums. While he declined to name specific operators likely to be in the running, he did admit that there has been universal interest for one particular block.“We have no operator lined up. This will be going to a competitive bidding process. Those who would have put in the best bid, whether as a consortium (or single), they will be awarded accordingly. In terms of areas that are still out there for possible allocation, Guyana is divided in three zones.“You have the deep and the ultra-deep, the shallow continental shelf and then you have onshore. The main areas that are still out there for allocation is Block C, with some potential relinquishments ongoing.”There is also a multi-client seismic survey being done; the data from which will inform Government’s distribution of blocks. This survey, however, will be centred on the shallow continental shelf – an area Bynoe lamented has been underexplored.Additionally, Bynoe also related that three other oil companies will start exploration in Guyana’s waters this year. He revealed the companies as Tullow, operating in the Orinduik block, Repsol in the Kanuku block and CGX in Corentyne.Meanwhile, the Department’s Special Advisor Matthew Wilks went into further detail about the 2020 timeline for distributing the blocks and the survey. Wilks noted that both these issues were interconnected.“Another thing that determines the timeline is how long it would take to acquire the seismic data and process it. That will take between 11 and 12 months. You need the seismic to package up into data packages, which companies then get as part of the licensing process.“The seismic data will guide us in terms of block size and shape and how we cut the available acreage up. So that, as well as the legislation, dictates the timeline,” the energy advisor added.Following criticisms last year, Government had announced it would award future oil blocks through both direct engagement and selective bidding. Before that, former petroleum advisor Dr Jan Mangal had come out publicly to urge the auctioning of the available petroleum blocks.“Guyana should no longer be awarding petroleum acreage via one-on-one negotiations after the Liza discovery in 2015 … there is a very serious risk of corruption with this method, due to the lack of transparency and accountability … Most countries have abandoned this method, as experts recommend against using it.,” Dr Mangal had said.“After the Liza discovery in 2015, Guyana was in a position to use the method of competitive bidding for the award of leases … The Liza discovery de-risked Guyana, and as a consequence, all the major oil companies recognise that there is oil in the country. Hence, all the oil companies will be interested in bidding for leases in a transparent way, which ensures that Guyana incorporates market forces to maximise its share,” Dr Mangal had said.According to Dr Mangal, the risk of Government’s friends and family illegally obtaining leases will be significantly reduced if an independently managed and well-audited competitive bidding process is used.Nor is he the only one. Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has also been calling for auctioning of the remaining blocks to ensure the best deal, backing Dr Mangal’s recommendations. At a press conference last year, Jagdeo had urged the Government to take its own petroleum advisor’s advice.“You don’t need to bring anyone in to tell you what your advisor already said, ‘Auction the blocks’. That is the best way that the Government gets value,” Jagdeo had stressed to the media.
“It usually takes a year or two for a quarterback to adjust to being here,” Hodgkiss said. “Sonny is definitely improving and will be a key to our success this year.” Hodgkiss also says the effectiveness of the offensive line will be another key. “Having our line stay healthy and be productive is as important as anything to this team,” Hodgkiss said. “We have to keep Cumbie protected and give him time to make throws.” Avengers owner Casey Wasserman also thinks this team can put last season’s struggles behind them. “Losing taught us a lot last year,” Wasserman said. “We have a young team, and we keep getting better. We’re excited.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Avengers understand tonight’s season opener against the San Jose Sabercats at Staples Center doesn’t simply represent the first game of a new season. For an arena football team that went 5-11 last year and missed the playoffs for the first time in five years, it’s more important than that. The Avengers want to bury last year for good. Furthermore, they want to take the first step on a path they hope leads back to the postseason. “Last year was a down year,” Avengers coach Ed Hodgkiss said. “We need get off to a fast start and install some confidence.” One of the keys to the season will be how second-year quarterback Sonny Cumbie, who started 12 games last season, adjusts to the Arena Football League after an up-and-down rookie year. “This year, I’m getting the reps to be a starter right away, unlike last season,” Cumbie said. “It’s going to make all the difference in the world.” The former Texas Tech quarterback was part of the Red Raiders’ traditional pass-heavy attack, in which he threw for 4,742 yards in 2004, good enough for sixth all-time in a single NCAA Div. I-A season. “It’s a lot different playing in here; this a quaterback’s league.” Cumbie said. “You always have to come with your A-game or your team will suffer.” Hodgkiss is confident Cumbie will have a productive season.

Bishop BoyceThe following is the Christmas message from Bishop of Raphoe Dr.Philip Boyce.“A Holy Season has come upon us again and “God’s grace has been revealed” (Tit. 2:11). We celebrate the coming of God’s Son into our world as a Saviour. His birth has changed the course of human history.“A new Star led the Wise Men from the East to Jerusalem and then on to Bethlehem, where they found the Child with Mary his Mother. They fell down on their knees and worshipped Him. No new star would go unnoticed nowadays, but not everyone is led to Bethlehem and to a Saviour. “This is the meaning of Christmas and the real reason for our celebrations: He came to save us. He is God in human flesh, the Unseen made visible, the all-powerful placed at our mercy, the ‘Creator in a cradle’. To remind us of this fact, it is important to have a Crib in our homes and streets, and not simply a tree.“This year Christmas falls in the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. God’s merciful and forgiving love is offered to us with greater abundance. We are invited to go through the Holy Door in the Cathedral (or at Rossnowlagh or Ards Friary) to receive mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.“Faced with the tragedy of many people becoming homeless in our country and the multitude of refugees and asylum seekers entering Europe as they flee from persecution and warfare, we do need God’s mercy. “In this Child at Bethlehem God’s Mercy was born” (Mother Julia).“May we in turn become merciful as our heavenly Father is merciful, as Pope Francis wrote: “A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just”. “May the blessings of Christmas enlighten your journey and bring you peace.

Over the past few months, I’ve taken a look at some critical issues for indoor air quality. Starting with the issue of how much time we spend indoors, I then wrote about kitchen ventilation, the panoply of indoor air pollutants, problems with filters in general and with high-MERV filters. Now let’s take the next step: a look at what research has been done on high-MERV filters and what can be done to overcome those unintended consequences I wrote about. Study #1 Article: Residential AC Filters by John Proctor, ASHRAE Journal, October 2012. In this article, John Proctor summarized some of the results he and his colleagues have found from studying California homes. One of the concerns in their research for the California Energy Commission was homeowners changing out 1-inch-thick standard fiberglass filters with 1-inch-thick pleated filters.RELATED ARTICLESSeven Reasons Your Filter Isn’t Cleaning the AirAll About Indoor Air QualityAll About Air Purifiers The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) protocols for HVAC design assume a pressure drop of 0.10 inches of water column (i.w.c.) across the filter. (Keep that number, 0.1 i.w.c., in mind as a reference point. I’ll be coming back to it.) If a system is designed with a standard filter for that pressure drop, the pressure drop with a pleated filter of the same size will most likely be higher. In addition, poorly designed and installed duct systems already have external static pressures that are too high. The typical furnace or air handler is rated for 0.5 i.w.c. but many run much higher pressure. David Richardson of the National Comfort Institute says that in the testing they’ve done, the average system is running at about 0.82 i.w.c. Result: In the California study, Proctor et al. found that the pressure drop across the filter in 34 HVAC systems was 0.28 i.w.c. That’s nearly three times what ACCA protocols assume. It’s also more than half of the rated external static pressure for the whole system. Study #2 Article: Is There a Downside to High-MERV Filters? by David Springer, Home Energy Magazine, 2 November 2009. David Springer of the Davis Energy Group published this great article with a lot of detail about what they did and what they found, including blower energy use, compressor energy use, and the specific filters they tested. I’ll let you go there for the details because here I’m mainly going to focus on the issue of pressure drop across the filter and the resulting effect on air flow. And speaking of filter pressure drop, here’s their chart for filters with MERV ratings from 2 to 13. Chart of filter pressure drop for filters with MERV ratings from 2 to 13. [Image Credit: David Springer, Home Energy Magazine article, Nov. 2009]They tested all the filters at the same width and height (16″ x 25″) but the depth varied from 1″ to 4″. They used 492 feet per minute (fpm) as the face velocity because that’s what the ASHRAE filter standard (52.2) calls for. With that face velocity and those dimensions, the air flow rate is 1,367 cubic feet per minute (cfm). (Flow rate equals area times velocity; see my article on the continuity equation for more on this.) Results: As you can see, there’s not a steady increase in pressure drop as the MERV rating increases. What does happen, though, is that the pressure drop jumps up significantly as soon as you change from the standard 1″ fiberglass filter (MERV-2) to the next level at MERV-6. They also found “a definite trend toward lower air flow with higher-MERV filters for systems using PSC motors.” (PSC stands for “permanent split capacitor.” A PSC motor is the one powering most HVAC blowers. Variable speed blowers have electronically commutated motors, ECMs.) The final result I’ll mention here is that they didn’t see as much difference as they expected for filters of different depths. For example, “the 4-inch Filtrete 1550 (MERV 12) was only marginally better than the 1-inch Filtrete 1700 (also MERV 12) and the two other [1-inch] MERV 11 filters of the same brand (1000 and 1085).” Study #3 Article: The Effects of Filtration on Pressure Drop and Energy Consumption in Residential HVAC Systems by Brent Stephens, Atila Novoselac, PhD, and Jeffrey A. Siegel, PhD, HVAC&R Research, Vol. 16, #3, May 2010. This one is an academic paper so if you want all the details, equations, and references to other works, click the link above and download the paper. (Brent was a student at the time he wrote this paper and has a page on his filter research on his website at the Illinois Institute of Technology, if you want to dive even deeper.) They looked at filter pressure drop and energy consumption, both theoretically and using four months of data from two air conditioning systems in a test house in Austin, Texas. Results: What they found is what you would expect, and in their limited range of MERV ratings tested, they did see an increase with each step up the MERV scale. Here are their results for filter pressure drop: Low-MERV (<4) 0.10 i.w.c. Mid-MERV (8) 0.19 i.w.c. High-MERV (11) 0.32 i.w.c. So the low-MERV filter is hitting the ACCA design pressure drop. The mid-MERV is twice as much and the high-MERV is three times as much. They also found that air flow in the high-MERV filters dropped by 7% and 11% in the two HVAC systems compared to the low-MERV filters. Likewise, the mid-MERV filters also showed decreased air flow relative to the low-MERV filters, this time 3% and 8% lower in the two systems. Summarizing the results As you can see above, the research shows that in general, HVAC systems with high-MERV filters have a higher pressure drop across the filter. This part is common to all three studies above. What happens with the air flow depends on what kind of blower the HVAC system uses. In a system with a PSC blower, the air flow drops and energy use doesn’t change much. The Stephens paper cites a 2002 study showing that 90% of all residential HVAC systems had PSC blowers. Certainly that number has fallen in the past 16 years, as high-performance homes and high-performance HVAC systems have become more popular. But I’m sure the vast majority of homes still have PSC motors running the blower. For those with the other type, the electronically commutated motor (ECM), the controls on those motors typically ramp up the motor speed as the pressure increases so relatively constant air flow is maintained. But there’s a penalty. Blowers with ECMs can be more efficient than those with PSC motors when they’re operating against the pressure they’re designed for. But when the pressure is higher, they can end up using more energy than the PSC blower. How to get good air flow AND good filtration So what can you do to be able to use a high-MERV filter and not suffer a high pressure drop across the filter and the resulting loss of air flow (PSC blower) or increased energy use (ECM blower)? It’s actually pretty simple. You just have to make the filter large enough to have a low face velocity. Remember my article on the continuity equation? As a duct gets larger in cross-sectional area, the velocity goes down. A lot of filters have a table printed on the side showing the pressure drop at a given air flow, and that’s something that you have to learn to use. John Semmelhack, owner of the building science consulting firm Think Little in Charlottesville, Virginia, does this regularly because he has to. He designs and commissions a lot of ducted minisplit heat pumps that have very low external static pressure ratings. With a system rated for air flow at 0.20 i.w.c, you don’t want to give up even the ACCA recommended 0.10 i.w.c. So he goes for — and gets — 0.03 i.w.c. Yeah! Really! We’re in the process of having a Mitsubishi ducted minisplit installed in our office and that’s what we’re going for, too. So, yes, most systems with high-MERV filters do have problems with excessive pressure drop across the filter and reduced air flow (or increased energy use). But that’s just because of lack of awareness of — or lack of interest in — how to do it properly.

We had a chance to chat with Tyler Measom, the director of An Honest Liar, about what it takes to make a great documentary, gaining the trust of your subjects, and if a sizzle reel is necessary.Top image via Waiving EntropyAn Honest Liar is arguably one of the best documentaries of the last few years. It’s a fascinating film about the magician James Randi — and according to Instanstwatcher.com, its one of the most popular films currently on Netflix.One of the film’s directors, Tyler Measom, was a great mentor to me during the distribution process of my film. He’s an encyclopedia of knowledge and provides a great amount of wisdom about what it takes to be a documentary filmmaker. He and I had a moment to chat about how to pursue ideas as a documentarian, how to get your work out there, and gaining the trust of your subjects. First, here’s the trailer for An Honest Liar.When I am looking to start a new doc, I often have many ideas that I sift through before settling on one. From your experience, how do you determine what is a good idea and an idea worth pursuing?TM: There are so many variables to weigh when choosing which film to do — access, commercial appeal, possibility of funding and, of course, the story itself. But completing a feature documentary takes a huge amount of time and energy. It is truly a passion project. So the most important question I ask myself, before engaging in a project, is if I personally find the subject interesting. Do I want to wish to spend the next few years of my life on this film and subject? Do I have a personal relationship to the story or characters? When one truly loves the film and the story that is being told, it makes the difficult parts of filmmaking much easier. What are some traits you look for in subjects?Image via Tyler Measom TM: It’s quite rare to find a human who dares to do something that defies societal norms. Most folks are content to simply get by and not necessarily take too many risks. So I am always interested in those that take on challenges, those that do things out of the ordinary, those that take a stand for what they believe. These risk-takers are ideal characters for a documentary, as as they often have humor, drama, and a three-act structure surrounding them.When starting on a new project, how do you get started? For example, do you create a sizzle video? How helpful is making one?TM: Once access to a subject (or subjects) is secured and a treatment is written, I will typically shoot for a few months, enough to garner sufficient footage for a sizzle. I myself don’t necessarily care for sizzle reels as it seems a little silly to take a rich and detailed story and create what amounts to a three-minute “montage.” But sizzles are necessary evils in today’s world of selling a film and a good sizzle can often equate to finding financing.Not too long ago, one could edit a simple work-in-progress trailer and that would be sufficient to convince commissioning editors of the potential in your film. But the quality of sizzle reels has gotten so remarkable lately that in order to create one that stands above the din, one must put months into assembling a great one. More importantly, can you sell your film by not showing any footage? A concise and exciting verbal pitch is just as important as a sizzle. Combine a great subject with a strong pitch, a wonderful sizzle, and an impassioned filmmaker, and finding funding for your film becomes much easier.In your latest film, An Honest Liar, you seemed to have gained a lot of trust as the filmmaker with your subject, James Randi. How do you gain that trust with a subject?Image via An Honest LiarTM: The notion of a stranger coming into your life with a camera pointed at your face intent on telling “your” story is a strange proposal from the onset. Remember that it takes a great deal of trust for someone to allow you to do this. The first step, for you as a filmmaker, is to understand and respect the leap of faith that a subject is taking. Most importantly, remember that you and your subjects are in this together, you are not there to take their story, nor are they entitled to give it to you. When the subject feels that this is a shared venture, he or she will be much more open to sharing their life with you.How were you able to find your voice and style as a documentary filmmaker?TM: I personally think documentaries are the most innovative genre of storytelling in media today. The documentary format is constantly evolving and many doc makers aren’t afraid of breaking the long-established “rules” of filmmaking. So I feel that my particular style is not yet fully formed, that it is continually evolving along with the genre itself. In this golden era of documentary film, many funders and commissioning editors are willing to back films and concepts that are unique. It’s a good time to take a risk.When you’re filming a documentary, at what point do you stop and think to yourself, “Okay, now I’ve got a film?”Image via An Honest LiarTM: I think it is very important when starting a film to not assign a completion date. Keep your mind open to possible storylines that emerge from your characters. I subscribe to the belief that if you hang around people long enough, you will find drama. However, the real story, and the real work, is in the editing room. That is when you need to spend an extra amount of energy and passion to get the film across the finish line. The last few weeks of editing are the most essential and important part of creating an amazing film. This is when the details and the timing emerge. Don’t compromise during this period. Sprint to the finish and you will sit proudly in the festival premiere knowing that you made the best film you could.What separates a good documentary from a great one?
