Senior Flyers sweep weekend exhibition games with Fort Nelson

first_imgNext for the Flyers is their final exhibition game before the regular season as they’ll take on the Spirit River Rangers at 8:30 p.m. on Friday night. Head coach Gerard Dicaire said the game was much closer than Saturday night and was up for grabs throughout.“They had a chance early in the third off of our power play, Carter [Ryan] had a breakaway so it could have gone either way. You just deal with it as it comes. Horsty didn’t want to play too long in overtime so he decided to score.” he said.Regardless of playing in just two games up to this point, Dicaire is happy with what he sees with his team especially given that they are a younger squad compared to last year’s group.- Advertisement -“So far yeah. We’ve got a younger squad this year, younger than even last year. We’ve got some of the Huskies up and some new guys into town working here. They seem committed so far but we’ll see how it is on our first road game how many guys show up at five o’clock.” he explained.Scoring in order for the Flyers were Joey Massingham, Aaron Schepers, Tyler Loney, and Adam Horst.Contributing with assists were Luke Middleton, Aaron Schepers, Rick Cleaver, Cole Calliou, and Brennan Giroux.Advertisementlast_img read more

How inconvenient

first_imgRe “Some Gore points under microscope” (March 13): The hubris of Al Gore is amazing and should be no surprise to anyone. Remember, he invented the Internet and was the basis for the book “Love Story,” right? And finally we are seeing in the press what many have known all along. That scientists believe nonscientist Gore’s exaggeration of the impact of global warming is hurting their scientific dialogue. Hollywood may love to think that New York and Florida will be swallowed up by a big wave, but real climatologists are concerned about Gore’s shrill propaganda as being far from fact. But apparently Gore doesn’t care. He has his golden statuette and celebrity sycophants, so why bother with truth? How inconvenient. – Pat Knepley Simi Valley Gore sport Re “Some Gore points under microscope” (March 13): All media are allowed fear-mongering and sky-is-falling (or water-is-rising) global-warming screeds to their heart’s content. But as soon as scientists differ with Al, they apologize; “I don’t want to pick on Al Gore, but there are a lot of inaccuracies.” What? Global-warming errors? Then pick, rip and shred. Let’s debate, or shall we also buy what Al sold us in his movie, “the debate is over.” Oh, really? And you’ve been warning us for 30 years? Right, we all remember the term “global warming” being all the rage in the 1970s. Another inaccuracy (lie)? – Roger Olsen Burbank Not on our street I would like to thank West Valley police for their quick response to my call at 5:15 p.m. on March 8 – in broad daylight. I noticed a car pull up in front of my house and a man and a young girl get out, get undressed, in view of all on the street, and jump into the back of a sport utility vehicle and have sex. Neighborhood kids were out and around in plain sight. I called a West Valley senior lead officer on the cell phone, and police were there in just a few minutes. The neighborhood thanks you for your response. – Chuck Noble Winnetka Raise the flag Re “Lifeguards’ wrong turns costly” (March 12): A 7-foot aluminum pole with a flag that can be embedded in the sand should be made available at the lifeguard tower for beachgoers, with a driver’s license as a deposit to assure proper return after use. This will provide lifeguard patrol trucks with visible markers of where the sunbathers are. – Jazzlyn de Joya Granada Hills Company for `Scooter’ Please tell Rich Lowry (“`Scooter’ deserves a pardon,” Their Opinions, March 12) that the only thing I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby truly deserves is to be joined in prison by his fellow criminals and national traitors: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Richard Armitage and everyone else in the White House who knew about the outing of a deep-undercover CIA operative and her entire covert operation by the White House to keep the lies about why we “had” to go to war against Iraq from being uncovered. – Marcy Rothenberg Porter Ranch Wanted poster Re “Another wanted suspect nabbed” (March 9): It’s interesting to see the quick results the 10 most-wanted list, with a reward posted, has yielded. I am wondering: Why not go with the deck of cards of the 52 most wanted? For years it was thought that if you posted names and pictures, it would bring notoriety to the urban terrorists. I say let the newspapers run a daily picture as well. It’s also nice to know that other countries are no longer willing to harbor them. With a reward and the ability to turn them in anonymously, it seems to be showing results. Maybe we should go back to the days of the “wanted” poster. Remember what it said at the bottom of the poster? – Mike Hoblinski Burbank160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Passive House in the Woods Opens Its Doors

first_img RELATED ARTICLES Passive House in the (Wisconsin) WoodsPassive House in the Woods Goes Energy-PositiveBlog Review: Tim EianWisconsin Electric Cooperative Jolts Passivhaus Owner When we last checked in on Passive House in the Woods, a project in Hudson, Wisconsin, it was early May, exterior insulation was about to go up, and the construction crew was probably more than ready to welcome summer weather. Things stayed on schedule. By the end of last month, construction had been completed and the house was open for public tours. Last Thursday, the project received certification from the Passive House Institute U.S.The house – two stories, with three bedrooms and 1,940 sq. ft. of interior space – was guided to completion and Passivhaus performance standards by Tim Delhey Eian of Minneapolis-based TE Studio, and the project builder, Morr Construction Services of Shoreview, Minnesota. The client, Gary Konkol, a general-practice physician, explains in a post on the project’s website that he was inspired to pursue the Passivhaus standard in part by news reports, Passive House Institute’s book “Homes for a Changing Climate,” and Eian’s enthusiasm for the standard and the construction quality it entails. A prototype for carbon-neutral performancePassive House in the Woods, or PHitW, was constructed with 11-in. insulated concrete forms and an exterior-insulation and finish system that brought the overall R value of the walls to 70. The slab, sitting on 12 in. of extruded polystyrene, is designed to R-60 and the flat roof, with an average of 14 in. of of polyisocyanurate insulation, to R-95.The building also is equipped with solar hot water and a 4.7 kW solar power system, which is expected to cover the home’s predicted 4,200 kWh annual usage and feed power back into the grid. The house has four doors to the outside (see comments below), including a front entry door in the front canopy area, one opening to the deck on the first floor, and another on the second-floor landing (known as “the plank”). A common steel-structure stair connects all levels to the ground and a rooftop terrace.Though he was not at liberty to discuss the final construction cost of the project, Eian told GBA that the “up-charge” to bring the building to Passivhaus performance standards was between 15% and 20% for this project, although, he added, “we feel that we can push that closer to 10% with some efficiencies in the future. I can also tell you that the cost of the home is perfectly in line with custom architect-designed homes in our area. It is more a matter of priorities than cost, once we are designing a high-quality building.”“Rather than a high-end showcase,” Eian said, “we look at it as a prototype for CO2-neutral operation.”last_img read more

Change Occurs When You Reach Threshold

first_imgThe status quo is a warm bath; it’s soothing and comfortable. Change is a cold shower; it’s surprising, shocking, and uncomfortable.Is it any wonder your dream clients aren’t excited to change? Even when they have good reason to change, they often seek the safety and comfort of the status quo. When things aren’t going well, at least they know the status quo. Change means venturing off into the scary unknown.Do you ever wonder why your clients aren’t interested in change even when the reasons to change are crystal clear to you? Do you wonder why your ideas aren’t compelling?People only seek change when they reach some threshold. Either there is so much dissatisfaction that change becomes the safest path forward, or there is an opportunity so great that it warrants abandoning the status quo (a positive form of dissatisfaction). But until that threshold is met, in one direction or the other, change is unlikely.Building Towards ThresholdIf you want to make the case for your change, you have to help your clients reach threshold.If your client should be dissatisfied, you build to threshold by helping them understand what not changing is costing them now, what it will cost them in the future, and why they can’t afford to stay where they are. On the far end of this continuum is survival; there is nothing so motivating as your own impending doom. Survival is the most serious threshold of all. But losing your competitive advantage, falling behind your competitors, and losing market share can be threshold events, too.You can build to threshold for positive changes, too. Even if things are going well, you can build towards the threshold that brings change by showing your client what is still possible, how change will better position them in the future, and what they are losing by not acting now. Faster growth now, the ability to capitalize on opportunities, or seizing a competitive advantage in the marketplace can all be threshold events. So can even greater profitability.You don’t have to build towards threshold with bold, challenging statements. In fact, making the case this way can often lead to more resistance–it can seem self-serving. You can make the case more effectively with well designed and well placed questions.If you want your product, service, or solution to be compelling, it has to help your clients get to threshold.QuestionsLook at the existing opportunities in your pipeline. Can you identify the threshold that is compelling your client to change?How urgently does your client need to change? What do they lose by holding on to the status quo?Which stakeholders haven’t yet (or won’t easily) reach threshold? How do you make a stronger case for them (or build a stronger case around them)?

15-year-old Dalit girl raped in moving car in Haryana

first_imgA 15-year-old Dalit girl was raped allegedly by two men in a moving car here, the police said on Wednesday. Acting on a complaint lodged by the victim’s mother on Tuesday, a case was registered against Praveen (37) and his friend. In her complaint, the woman said that her daughter was in trauma since the incident. She added that the two men had also threatened her daughter, saying they would eliminate her family. The woman claimed that her daughter and Praveen had met on social networking site Facebook. Praveen had been putting pressure on the girl to meet him, the police said. On July 26, he called the victim near Lal Dwara temple, where he and his friend were waiting in a car, they said. When the girl arrived, the accused allegedly pushed her inside the car and took turns to rape her in the moving vehicle, the police said. The two men later left the girl in a park near her house. Praveen was arrested on Wednesday while his friend was yet to be arrested, the police said. The accused have been booked under the relevant sections of the IPC and the provisions of the POCSO Act and the SC/ST Act, they said.last_img read more
