For Movember, a professor shaves his ’stache

first_img Read Full Story A group of men in Harvard’s medical community are growing mustaches in November to raise awareness and money for men’s health, particularly prostate and testicular cancer, as part of an international effort called “Movember.”Harvard School of Public Health’s Meir Stampfer, professor of epidemiology and nutrition, took the opposite tack — he shaved his 40-year-old mustache to boost the fundraising effort of the Harvard Movember team. In an Oct. 27 Harvard Crimson article, Stampfer called his mustache “part of my identity” but said he was ready to shave it off if it would help stimulate interest in prostate cancer research. Stampfer has been a leading author of studies on prostate, colon, and breast cancer.The Harvard team reached its goal of raising $40,000 even before November began — and Stampfer followed through with a public shave on Oct. 30.last_img read more

South Sound Ductless Answers Questions About Ductless Heat Pumps

first_imgFacebook2Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by South Sound DuctlessWhat exactly is a ductless heat pump and how does it work?This is a question we often get at South Sound Ductless.  People have seen our name or heard about the big rebates from their utility company and wonder how these things could work to heat and cool with no ductwork.  They want to know the “catch”.  Well, there isn’t one!Ductless heating and cooling systems, sometimes called “mini-splits”, work in much the same way as a traditional centrally ducted heat pump or air conditioner, but there are some distinct advantages over those traditional systems.First, there is no large furnace or fan coil to take up valuable floor space and the fan motor is smaller and thus quieter.  Also, there are no air ducts, so less heat is lost, and installation is much easier, quicker, and costs about half the price as installing a ducted system.  Instead of ducts, the outdoor and indoor units are connected by a small refrigerant line about three inches in diameter.A condensing unit is located outside the home. This contains the compressor which circulates the refrigerant to produce the cooling effect. There are several types of compressors but the latest innovation is inverter technology which allows the compressor to operate at an almost unlimited number of speeds. The units normally start at full speed when there is the need for heating or cooling.  After the set point is reached, the speed is reduced to pump just enough refrigerant to match the requirements of the home. This means energy savings as well as longer cycles which then provide more cleaning/filtering of the home’s air and more even temperature distribution.A fan coil can be mounted on the wall or ceiling of the room to be conditioned. This is the indoor unit, also sometimes called the “head”.  The head contains an evaporator coil, fan, and filtering system along with the control components.  Some of these units include advanced filtering systems such as carbon activated filters, electrostatic filters, or anti-bacterial filters and many units include more than one filter technology.  Many heads also include a very small motor to move louvers up and down and/or back and forth which enhances air circulation throughout the room.The system is usually controlled through a remote which you can use to set the temperature, change the modes of operation, and set timers.   Some units include a temperature sensor in the remote. Sensing the room temperature at the remote instead of high on the wall can allow for better comfort in your home.Many units include advanced modes of operation. Turbo mode or quick cool mode runs the fan and compressor on highest speeds to provide the most cooling in the shortest amount of time.   Dehumidify or dry mode operates the fan at lower speeds to increase the amount of moisture removed from the air.  Sleep mode can allow for energy savings without noticeable changes in comfort level.  A fresh air option allows a small duct to be connected and bring in air from the outside.Ductless heating and cooling systems can also be connected to more than one indoor fan coil unit. These configurations are called “multi-splits” and can help you to save money when more than one unit is required due to the size or unique configuration of your home or business.  These heads can be operated independently of one another and set at different temperatures to accommodate different needs.Ductless heat pumps are great for replacing older systems, whether ducted or not.  They work well in new construction, remodeling and additions.  And the energy savings is so great that significant cash rebates and tax credits are available for most.This article was authored by Marcie Meisenheimer of South Sound Ductless.  South Sound Ductless is a locally owned and operated heating and cooling system company.  Ductless heat pumps are all we do because we believe in the technology.  To learn more about ductless heat pumps and how you can save money and get big rebates contact South Sound Ductless.www.southsoundductless.com  360.529.7567last_img read more

Powered by Firework Aussie spinner Ashton Agar received a horrific injury between his eyes while taking a catch in a Marsh One-Day Cup game. The Western Australia player suffered a laceration to the bridge of his nose while he was attempting to dismiss his younger sibling Wes, in Sunday’s match against South Australia at the Karen Rolton Oval.Advertisement Image Courtesy: SkySportsIt was during the third delivery of the 41st over by Marcus Stoinis, when Wes timed the ball wrong and it went straight towards Ashton. The elder Agar tried to take the catch but received a terrible blow as he slipped down on the ground. The spinner appeared to be in immense pain and could not even stand up while his teammate Jhye Richardson quickly called for medical assistance, as Wes rushed immediately to check on his brother. After a primary treatment, Ashton was taken off the field with blood all over his face and jersey.Advertisement “He slipped over and the ball hit his glasses and the glasses split him open,” Wes admitted to Cricket.com.au“The doctor wanted to stitch him up, but he just got engaged so he said he’ll leave it to a plastic surgeon.“I was pretty rattled … It looked really bad. I was just worrying about his health. I wasn’t thinking about anything else, I just ran out of my crease to go see him.“I didn’t feel great, but thankfully he’s okay.”However, Ashton’s team won the match by six runs despite a Callum Ferguson century.

What’s Happening to All the Green Building Programs?

first_imgChanges, changes, changesThe national programs are all undergoing significant transitions. The latest version of LEED for Homes, originally called 2012 and then renamed to Version 4, recently completed its fifth public comment period and is scheduled to be voted on during the summer of 2013, and, hopefully released late in the year.Interestingly, USGBC is currently planning to allow projects to be certified under the current or the upcoming versions of LEED for Homes for as long as three years after the release of Version 4. Since the current version of LEED for Homes still relies on Energy Star Version 2 requirements for its energy efficiency prerequisites and credits, there is a plan to raise the energy efficiency requirements in the current version of LEED for Homes in early 2013.The 2012 NGBS, also known as ICC 700, is planned for release in early 2013. There will be a short period of approximately three months when builders can use either the current or new versions. Following this, all new projects must use the new standard for certification.Energy Star has also introduced a multifamily certification program to address high-rise buildings that are subject to commercial building codes. Green home certification programs are starting to reach a level of maturity. At the national level, LEED for Homes has established itself as the national industry leader, at least from a branding standpoint. NAHB’s National Green Building Standard (NGBS) has a growing following but, in my opinion, is still struggling to gain broad industry acceptance. Energy Star completed its transition to Version 3 in 2012, significantly raising the bar for certification, and, it appears, losing some market share in the process.The Passivhaus standard continues to influence industry thinking and discussion, possibly out of proportion to its actual impact on the market. The Living Building Challenge is out there on the cutting edge, still having only certified a few (mostly commercial) buildings. Where are we going?While single-family home certification won’t go away, I believe that it will take a while for the demand for certified homes to grow. One industry bright spot is multifamily housing. A large portion of affordable housing in many states is green certified, and many market-rate buildings are now seeking certification. This is good luck for the residents of these buildings – they will get to reap the health, comfort, and efficiency benefits, and, hopefully, demand the same when they move into new apartments, condos, and homes down the road.It will be interesting to see how this will all shake out. I believe that ENERGY STAR will slowly recapture some of its market share. LEED and the NGBS will continue to grow their share, probably at the expense of local programs, with much confusion as the new versions are released and phased in over the next several years. Then we will see another round of program updates and the process will start over again.Confusing? Sure, but it’s also a bit of job security for us raters and consultants. What’s up locally?Many local and regional programs, once close to 200 in number, appear to be losing market share, some to the national certifications. As construction slowed at the beginning of the latest recession, many single-family builders eliminated third-party certification. BLOGS BY CARL SEVILLE Another GreenBuild DownPondering the Sorry State of Green BuildingThe Problem With Modern Architecture Several large builders created their own green branding programs, some of which barely meet the current energy code.EarthCraft House, the Southeastern U.S. program that I am most familiar with, now relies primarily on multifamily certifications, much of that in the affordable market. Single-family home certification, once the mainstay of EarthCraft, is a small part of a much smaller new home market.Some local programs have shut down, and, I expect, that others will do so as well. Please share any stories about the status of local programs in your area.

A New Weapon to Fight Water Waste

first_imgCalifornia residents alarmed about wasted water or annoyed with the cavalier attitudes of their neighbors can do more than grumble. With the right smartphone app, they can take their complaints directly to local water agencies for action. The Los Angeles Times reports that officials in several parts of the state have rolled out apps that allow smartphone owners to take pictures of practices that violate water restrictions or report leaks that officials may not know about.Vizsafe, which the newspaper described as a neighborhood watch app, has a feature allowing users to map photos of people who are wasting water, a practice called “drought shaming” on Twitter and Instagram.The availability of the apps comes as California tries to cope with a drought that is draining lakes and drying up wells. Governor Jerry Brown in January declared a state of emergency and asked residents to cut water consumption by 20%.Matthew Kahn, an economics professor in Los Angeles, told the newspaper that just knowing that the apps exist would be enough to help people conserve water. “While we all fear Orwell’s Big Brother,” he told the newspaper, “we all try harder when we are being watched, even if that is a little creepy. You may need these social apps to motivate these behavioral changes.” The capabilities of the apps varyIn addition to Vizsafe, apps aimed at water conservation have been made available by the Long Beach water department, the Desert Water Agency (which serves the Palm Springs area), the Santa Clara Valley Water District, and the Placer County Water Agency. The Long Beach app dates back to 2010 but was updated this August to users could include photos.The LA Times said that the anonymous complaints usually generate a letter from the utility to the offending property owners. Most complaints involve irrigation malfunctions, but some of them come from people who are irritated because their neighbors don’t seem to be taking conservation seriously.In one case, a woman watched a neighbor wash his car every day for months. Although she tried talking to him about it, she didn’t get very far. Then the city launched its upgraded app. The woman took a picture and sent it to the water department and the car-washing stopped.It’s not always the guy next door who gets pinched. In a related article, The Times reported on a amateur filmmaker who captured images of a stream of water pooling on the ground right in front of a building marked “Department of Water and Power, City of Los Angeles, Receiving Station K.”A 2009 study by Southern California Edison found that the state loses about 10% of its water volume to leaking pipes. It adds up to billions of gallons a year, according to the newspaper.last_img read more

Buyer Beware: Dangerous Paint Strippers Are Still Being Sold

first_imgThis post, which was co-authored by Mike Schade, was updated on February 19 to reflect a change in policy at The Home Depot. In 2018, the Natural Resources Defense Council won a wave of commitments from 11 of North America’s largest retailers to ban the sale of paint strippers containing the toxic chemicals methylene chloride and N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP). To see how these retailer policy commitments have been implemented, campaign staff, partner organizations and volunteers are visiting stores across the country to see whether retailers are following through to “mind the store.”RELATED ARTICLESAmazon Will Ban Controversial Paint StrippersEPA Sued Over Inaction on Paint StripperGetting Dangerous Paint Strippers Off the ShelvesAre Hazardous Vapors Seeping Into Your Basement? Over the last few weeks, we and our partners visited 42 locations of five major retailers’ stores, all of which had pledged to ban the sale of these harmful products by the end of 2018. We visited stores in 11 states (California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, North Carolina, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah) and the District of Columbia. The good news: All 12 Lowe’s stores we surveyed no longer had methylene chloride-based paint strippers on store shelves. Four out of 12 stores did carry one NMP-based paint stripper, and when contacted, a company representative pledged to reach out to the stores to remove the products. Lowe’s staff told us that they have issued a “stop sale” for methylene chloride and NMP paint strippers, which prevents these products from ringing up at the register. The NMP-based stripper we found at four stores (Citristrip) has been reformulated to not contain NMP and the old version of the product may have the same barcode as the new one. Therefore, consumers should still read the label closely. Two out of the seven Sherwin-Williams stores visited were still selling methylene chloride-based paint strippers. In response to our inquiry about these products, a Sherwin-Williams spokesperson said that every store would be re-checked on January 18 to ensure all products have been removed. No stores were selling NMP-based paint strippers; the company was not selling NMP-based products this past year. One out of the three Kelly-Moore stores visited was still selling NMP-based paint strippers. We did not identify any methylene chloride-based paint strippers still for sale at the three stores visited. In response to our inquiry about the product containing NMP, a Kelly-Moore spokesperson told us their director of purchasing is resending a memo to all stores reminding them of the company’s commitment and to remove the products from store shelves. The bad news: Across the board, 62% of the stores we visited were still selling methylene chloride and/or NMP paint stripper products. We found the two other retailers whose stores we visited are still intentionally selling their remaining stock of methylene chloride and/or NMP-based paint strippers, despite their pledge to phase out the sale of toxic paint strippers by the end of 2018. This is deeply disappointing. We found: All 11 of The Home Depot stores visited were still selling methylene chloride-based paint strippers. Five out of 11 also sold NMP-based paint strippers. In early January, we also identified both methylene chloride and NMP paint removal products available on The Home Depot website. The company has since removed the methylene chloride products from the website, but there are still at least two NMP products available online. (Since then, the company said it is removing its remaining inventory of methylene chloride and NMP products from store shelves.) Eight out of nine AutoZone stores visited were still selling methylene chloride-based paint strippers. Only one store did not. At five of the stores, we noticed the methylene chloride products were marked for clearance at almost 70% off, which could encourage consumers to unknowingly buy these dangerous products instead of safer ones. No AutoZone stores were selling NMP-based paint strippers. While both The Home Depot and AutoZone indicated that they have stopped purchasing new orders of methylene chloride- and NMP-based paint strippers, corporate staff for each company told us they are continuing to sell their remaining stock. This is out of sync with the public commitments these retailers have made to phase out the sale of methylene chloride and/or NMP products by the end of 2018. Selling off dangerous products, in some cases at a deep discount, is not in the best interests of their customers. While we visited a limited number of stores for each retailer, our store visits suggest this may be a problem for some of these chains. Mom demands action from retailers Lauren Atkins, whose son Joshua died using Rust-Oleum Aircraft Remover, visited stores in her area. She saw the product that killed him being sold for about 70% off at the AutoZone store where he bought it. She also found products containing methylene chloride at her local Home Depot and Sherwin-Williams. Ms. Atkins said: “For the sake of all of your customers you said you valued, and your future customers, please follow through with your commitment to remove the deadly products that contain methylene chloride and NMP from your shelves. The lives of your customers and their loved ones are depending on your commitment.” The longer that retailers continue to sell these products, the greater chance that someone could be harmed. After all, at least four people have died from using these products, including Joshua, since the Trump Administration started dragging its feet on banning these dangerous paint strippers two years ago. How did we get here? In May, in response to our national campaign, Lowe’s became the first major retailer to pledge to ban the sale of toxic paint strippers. This led to a major domino effect. In the following months, Sherwin-Williams, The Home Depot, Walmart, Amazon, AutoZone, True Value, PPG, Kelly-Moore Paints, Home Hardware, and Canadian Tire all made similar commitments. These are big victories for our campaign and for public health. We applaud these retailers for stepping up and committing to ban these dangerous products. Their actions are likely saving lives. In contrast, other retailers like Menards and Ace Hardware have failed to make public commitments to ban the products, and the EPA continues to drag its feet on banning these hazardous chemicals under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). That’s why Safer Chemicals Healthy Families, Vermont PIRG, and the mothers of two young men who recently died from methylene chloride exposure have filed a lawsuit against Acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler and the EPA for their failure to finalize a ban on the use of methylene chloride in paint strippers.  NRDC has also served notice of its intent to file a lawsuit for EPA’s failure to take action required under TSCA. EPA’s own scientists found that methylene chloride and NMP pose health risks to the public, including cancer, harm to the nervous system and to fetal development, and death. According to the EPA, more than 60,000 U.S. workers and 2 million consumers are exposed to methylene chloride and NMP annually. Retailers must follow through on their commitments These retailers must follow through on the commitments they made and immediately pull these dangerous products from store shelves. If they haven’t already, they should also follow Lowe’s lead and issue a “stop sale” so that consumers can’t purchase these harmful products at the register. Over the next few months, we’ll continue to monitor these five retailers’ stores, and plan to visit other retailers like Walmart, Amazon, and True Value to see how they are implementing their policies once they come into effect. We’ll also continue to call on other retailers like Menards and Ace Hardware to join them. This new in-store research underscores why we need federal action and enforcement by the EPA, to ensure that no toxic paint strippers remain on store shelves. In the meantime, consumers should remain vigilant. Until these retailers’ policies are fully implemented and EPA bans these products, consumers should exercise caution when purchasing paint strippers to ensure they don’t contain these dangerous chemicals.  Learn more about safer alternatives.   Sujatha Bergen is the director of health campaigns in the Health and Food Division of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The ROI of Softer Stuff

first_imgRevenue improvement. Profit increases. Cost reductions. Efficiencies.These are all tangible, measurable improvements that your product, service, or solution can produce. They make it possible for you to generate and share an ROI with your client. As important as it is to produce a business case, these aren’t the only factors buyers consider when making decisions. They don’t move you to trusted advisor, consultative salesperson, and Level 4 Value Creator status.Trust is soft. There isn’t a great way to measure it. But without trust nothing that you present really matters. What do you believe your dream client believes the ROI on trust to be?Caring, like trust, is soft. Your dream client will never list “caring” in a row on a spreadsheet and score you against your competitor (they won’t do that with trust, either). But when your dream client makes a decision, how much they believe you care about them and their challenges is a factor they weigh heavily. If you don’t believe this is true, share with them how much commission you hope to make on their sale and see how it changes your relationship.Business acumen and situational knowledge (or in the common vernacular, insights) are too soft to be measured. But people in positions of authority value people with the ability to help them deal with their most complex business challenges. They value people with ideas. They trade lower price for greater insights. They trade a marginally better ROI for real relationships of value.Collaboration isn’t a metric (at least not one I’ve ever seen). But you are being judged by how easy you are to do business with and how open you are to helping your dream client adjust your solution to precisely fit their needs. They value your ability to help them build consensus, and they appreciate being armed to have high value conversations within their own organization.None of this is to say that your financial ROI isn’t important. It is important, and critically so in some deals. But so is the softer stuff that gives you the opportunity to better develop the ROI, to position yourself as the right partner, to drive a wedge between you and your competitors, and to frame your solution in a way that resonates with your dream client contacts.
