Johnson wound up 14th on the speed chart in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 48 Chevrolet.Final practice featured lighter participation, with just 23 of the 40 cars entered posting laps, mainly in single-car runs. Several teams took to the track in packs in opening practice, yielding higher speeds.Several cars were held out of final practice because of technical infractions and failed inspections in previous weeks.Teams with 30-minute deductions in final practice:Chip Ganassi Racing No. 1 Chevrolet for driver Jamie McMurrayStewart-Haas Racing No. 4 Ford for Kevin HarvickHendrick Motorsports No. 5 Chevrolet of Kasey KahneRoush Fenway Racing No. 6 Ford of Trevor BayneHendrick Motorsports No. 24 Chevrolet of Chase ElliottGo Fas Racing No. 32 Ford of Matt DiBenedettoFurniture Row Racing No. 77 Toyota of Erik JonesHendrick Motorsports No. 88 Chevrolet of Dale Earnhardt Jr.Teams with 15-minute deductions in final practice:Richard Childress Racing No. 3 Chevrolet of Austin DillonStewart-Haas Racing No. 10 Ford of Danica PatrickStewart-Haas Racing No. 14 Ford of Clint BowyerRoush Fenway Racing No. 17 Ford of Ricky Stenhouse Jr.Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Toyota of Kyle BuschJoe Gibbs Racing No. 19 Toyota of Daniel SuarezJoe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota of Matt KensethTeam Penske No. 22 Ford of Joey LoganoJTG Daugherty Racing No. 37 Chevrolet of Chris BuescherJTG Daugherty Racing No. 47 Chevrolet of AJ AllmendingerHendrick Motorsports No. 48 Chevrolet of Jimmie JohnsonPremium Motorsports No. 55 Toyota of DJ KenningtonFurniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota of Martin Truex Jr.Leavine Family Racing No. 95 Chevrolet of Michael McDowellCoors Light Pole Qualifying is scheduled Saturday at 4:15 p.m. ET (NBCSN).Keselowski corrals fastest lap in first practiceBrad Keselowski secured the fastest lap in opening Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice Friday at Talladega Superspeedway.Keselowski, a four-time Talladega winner, registered a best speed of 197.859 mph on the 2.66-mile track, his Team Penske No. 2 Ford benefiting from an aerodynamic draft in a multi-car pack.Daytona 500 winner Kurt Busch was second-fastest at 197.806 mph in the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 41 Ford. Ryan Blaney was third-fastest, with Ricky Stenhouse Jr., the winner in two of the three restrictor-plate races this year, fourth-fastest in the Roush Fenway Racing No. 17 Ford. Kevin Harvick completed the top five in the opening 55-minute session.Sunday’s Alabama 500 (2 p.m. ET, NBC, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) is the fifth of 10 races in the postseason and the middle event in the three-race Round of 12 elimination phase. The unpredictable nature of the track’s typical close-quarters racing threatens to shake up the standings ahead of next weekend’s round-ending race at Kansas.Seven-time series champ Jimmie Johnson was hit with some early unpredictability, running over a piece of debris and cutting the left-rear tire on his Hendrick Motorsports No. 48 Chevrolet. The car spun getting up to speed in Turns 3 and 4, but managed to avoid contact with the retaining wall.Johnson’s Chevy was pushed back to the garage to evaluate potential damage from sliding down the 33-degree banking to the apron and infield grass. He did not post a lap in the practice session.“Nothing major. It looks like we will stay with this car,” Johnson said from the garage. “There might be some panels to push out and straighten out, stuff like that. Probably a new splitter on the car. But all in all, got away with one there for sure.”Joey Logano, winner of the last two October races at Talladega, was ninth-fastest in the Team Penske No. 22 Ford.Several teams were scheduled to lose practice time Friday because of technical infractions and failed inspections in previous weeks.Two teams had 30-minute deductions enforced in opening practice — the Furniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota of points leader Martin Truex Jr. and the JTG Daugherty No. 47 Chevrolet of AJ Allmendinger. Those two teams are also on deck for 15-minute holds in final practice, for a total of 45 minutes.last_img read more

Sick Custom Hidden Di2 Road Bike from English Cycles

first_imgStraight on, there’s virtually no indication this is a Di2 bike. No visible battery. No visible controller box. No visible wires.The battery uses Icarus’ custom internal battery with micro-USB charging port, and the port is cleanly integrated directly into the frame. The battery is about half the weight as 50% more capacity than the stock power unit.Internal wire routing through the chain stays is now pretty common. Here’s where things get trick:Rather than leave the control box zip tied to the brake cables, Rob fabricated a custom stem to hold it flush on the underside. Controls are still accessible, and wires are then run directly through the stem into the frame.To make this work, the stem and steerer tube are one piece and the fork clamps to it at the bottom. It essentially uses an upside down Aheadset nut to tighten the fork and stem/steerer into the the headset, which is tightened into place from under the fork crown. Once that’s tight, the front brake is attached using a shortened bolt that, rather than running through the entire fork crown like normal, tightens up against a curved washer on the inside front wall of the fork.The steerer tube has a cut out that’s smoothed edges to funnel the wires into the downtube. The hole allows the bar to rotate 90º, at which point it would hit the frame and stop anyway. Rob says the real stress points are where the steerer tube interfaces with the headset, so the hole doesn’t diminish the structural integrity of the system and that he thickened up the ends of the steerer tube, too.About the frame, Rob had this to say:“The frame features a Columbus aero downtube, custom butted and ovalized seattube, my signature skinny wishbone seatstays and True Temper S3 chainstays. Retro Sweet Wings steel cranks complete the steel theme, but the bike still comes in under 15lbs.”This bike’s been delivered to its owner after spending a few days in Fair Wheel Bike’s showroom. Now we just get to wait and see what he comes up with for NAHBS 2012! Rob English has been featured here before for his sweet custom builds (here and here, for example), and we’ve even teased this particular bike. Called the English Cycles Di2 Special, it takes stealth integration to the next level. Here’s the foreword:“It always seemed that the control box was an afterthought, being cable-tied to the brake cables. So I made a custom stem to house it underneath. By also making an ‘upside down’ headset arrangement, such that the steerer is part of the stem and bolts into the fork crown, I was able to run the Di2 cables completely inside from the stem to the derailleurs. Then of course the battery needed to be hidden too…”Curious? Sneak past the break and see how it all came together…last_img read more

Affordable housing embraces automated wood heat

first_imgVermont Business Magazine Not that long ago, the Hollister Hill Apartments on Austin Road in Plainfield were a rather bleak example of 1970’s architecture that had seen better days. The Housing Foundation, Inc. had a vision to rebuild them, rendering them into comfortable, affordable, and functional units for their tenants to call home. They did so in part by embracing renewable energy in the form of a central wood pellet boiler.This is the third location where The Housing Foundation has installed a pellet boiler for their units, the others being Colonial Manor Apartments in Morristown and Fairground Apartments in Moretown, with hopes for future projects. Krister Adams, Development Specialist with the Vermont State Housing Authority, said, “Wood pellet boilers are a relatively simple heating system. We have found them to be cost effective and reliable. Plus, using wood as a heat source is environmentally sound and helps our local economy.”The organization feels it is important to do their part to help Vermont reach its goal of 90% renewable energy by 2050, but also, the bottom line just makes sense. “Renewable fuels are cheaper and less volatile than fossil fuels. That’s essential when your residents rely on affordable rent for the long term. We can’t ask them to absorb a spike in oil prices,” said Adams. They also considered air source heat pumps for this property, but the economics of a pellet system made more sense.According to Andrew Perchlik, Director of the Clean Energy Development Fund, “The Housing Foundation is one of several affordable housing groups that has embraced wood heating. These organizations see pellet heating not as a possibility, but as the default top choice, with oil or propane as ‘alternative’ heating. They have realized it is the best option not just ecologically, but economically as well.” These units join more than 500 other affordable housing units across the state that are heated with wood pellets.For this installation, Lyme Green Heat installed a 191,000 Btu/hr Maine Energy Systems PES56 pellet boiler along with a 15-ton silo to hold pellets which are delivered in bulk by Bourne’s Energy. The pellet boiler provides heat and hot water for two buildings with a total of 16 apartments as well as hot water for the common building which has meeting space, laundry room, and kitchen. The boiler system was funded in part by a $16,000 custom rebate from the Clean Energy Development Fund.The apartments are about two-thirds occupied so far and will be fully occupied by the end of June. The Housing Foundation is planning an open house at the end of June as a celebration and will welcome visitors at that time who would like to check out the pellet boiler.Wood pellets are small, evenly-sized granules of 100% compressed sawdust. They are made from low-grade wood or sawdust from saw mills. They have a very low moisture content that allows them to burn very clean, and because they are small and even in shape they can be fed into automated systems, such as a pellet stove or boiler for a home. The pellets being delivered to the Hollister Hill apartments are from Vermont Wood Pellet in Clarendon.Currently, an estimated 12% of Vermont households heat at least in part with pellets (either bagged or bulk); a figure that’s expected to rise as more homes install automatic pellet boilers.Modern wood heating incentives are available for home and business owners:$3000 from the Clean Energy Development Fund, www.rerc-vt.org(link is external)$3000 from Efficiency Vermont, https://www.efficiencyvermont.com/rebates(link is external)For more information on these and all other current incentives on modern wood heat in Vermont, visit: http://fpr.vermont.gov/incentives(link is external)For more information on wood heating in affordable housing, download the Practical Guide to Modern Wood Heating: Successful Conversion to Wood Heating for Affordable Housing in Vermont here: https://www.biomasscenter.org/pdfs/Practical-Guide-to-Modern-Wood-Heating-HOUSING.pdf(link is external)Source: Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation 4.30.2018last_img read more

Court removes Ninth Circuit Judge Turner from the bench

first_img Court removes Ninth Circuit Judge Turner from the bench The Supreme Court has removed from the bench a Ninth Circuit judge for campaign financing violations, representing his mother in a legal matter after joining the bench, and for intruding in the personal life of a clerk.The majority of justices in the case declined to address a claim by the judge that Canon 7C(1), which prohibits direct solicitation of campaign contributions by judicial candidates, is unconstitutional. The majority said it was unnecessary in resolving the case. But in a separate concurring opinion, Chief Justice Charles Canady said the court should have taken up the claim and that under recent federal court decisions, the prohibition is unconstitutional.The court’s November 18 opinion removed Judge N. James Turner, who was elected in 2008. The Judicial Qualifications Commission had filed initial charges in July 2009 and later added more. The JQC hearing panel ultimately found Judge Turner guilty of six charges, plus an additional charge that Turner’s actions “constituted a pattern of misconduct.”The court found Turner guilty of five of the six charges and the pattern of misconduct charge. It declined to address the direct solicitation issue.One charge stemmed from Turner accepting a campaign loan from his mother. The record showed his mother transferred $42,288.79 to the judge one day after the election and the judge transferred $30,000 of that to his campaign to pay outstanding debts. That violated the state law, which sets a $500 limit on campaign contributions.Two charges were connected with Turner representing his mother, who obtained the money she loaned him by refinancing her condominium and subsequently faced foreclosure on that mortgage.In late 2009, Turner filed a notice of appearance that he would be representing his mother and also negotiated with the foreclosing bank on behalf of his mother, always identifying himself as an attorney, not a judge.The court noted Canon 5G prohibits judges from practicing law, although they may “draft or review documents for a member of the judge’s family.” The comment to the rule further provides that, “A judge must not, however, act as an advocate or negotiator for a member of the judge’s family in a legal matter.”Turner contended he misunderstood that canon, but the court rejected that argument.“There is no other reasonable interpretation of the canon than that a judge is flatly prohibited from negotiating and advocating on behalf of a family member in a legal matter,” the court said.The court also agreed with the JQC that Turner had used his position as a judge to intrude into the working and personal life of an employee of the clerk of court, including calling her several times a day, showing up at her desk several times a day, and seeking outings with the woman and her son, who was being treated for cancer.The JQC found the judge’s action’s improper, although “not romantic or sexual but instead stemmed from Judge Turner’s loneliness and need to be needed.”The court found that Turner improperly handled a hearing of a juvenile in front of him for failing to pay court costs. Turner observed the youth was wearing an earring and inquired if it was a diamond. The youth replied that it was a fake and cost $7. Turner then offered to take $10 off of the due court costs if the youth turned over the earring, which he did.The court found that violated Canon 3B(3), which provides that a “judge shall require order and decorum in proceedings before the judge.”The JQC found that Turner did not know the conduct was inappropriate, but the court held it was part of his pattern of continued misconduct in running for and serving on the bench.The court agreed with the JQC that, taken overall, that pattern merited removal from the bench.“Because Judge Turner gained his office partially through illegal means and committed serious violations of the judicial canons upon assuming his role as a judge, we determine that he has engaged in conduct unbecoming a member of Florida’s judiciary and is unfit to perform the duties of his office,” the court said.The opinion noted the court majority declined to address the JQC’s finding that Turner had violated Canon 5, “which proscribes the personal solicitation of campaign funds by judicial candidates.” Turner claimed the provision violated his First Amendment rights.The JQC did not address that issue, saying it was best left to the court. The court majority held, “Because we conclude that Judge Turner‘s misconduct apart from the charges contained in count 5 requires his removal, we too decline to decide the constitutional issue at this juncture.”That majority include Justices Barbara Pariente, Peggy Quincy, Jorge Labarga, and James Perry. Justice Fred Lewis was recused. Justice Ricky Polston joined Chief Justice Canady in his concurring opinion.Canady agreed that Turner should be removed from the bench, but he said the court should have addressed the personal solicitation issue because of its impact on judicial candidates. He also argued the court should have found that canon unconstitutional, citing recent federal court decisions.“To the extent that Canon 7C(1) infringes on speech rights protected by the First Amendment, this court bears responsibility for the ongoing constitutional violation,” Canady wrote. “When presented with a case which properly presents a constitutional challenge to a rule we have adopted, we should not decline to address it but should use the opportunity to ensure that we have exercised our rule-making power in a way that is consistent with constitutional requirements.”He argued the canon must fail because it infringes on the First Amendment and is not narrowly tailored to serve the state’s interest “in preserving the integrity of our judiciary and maintaining the public’s confidence in an impartial judiciary.”“Substantially identical canons have been invalidated by both the [U.S.] Eleventh Circuit, Weaver, 309 F.3d at 1322, and the Sixth Circuit, Carey, 614 F.3d at 205. I find the reasoning of those decisions to be compelling,” Canady said.The 11th Circuit, ruling in a Georgia case, held that “even if there is a risk that judges will be tempted to rule a particular way because of contributions or endorsements, this risk is not significantly reduced by allowing the candidate’s agent to seek these contributions and endorsements on the candidate’s behalf rather than the candidate seeking them himself. Successful candidates will feel beholden to the people who helped them get elected regardless of who did the soliciting of support. [The Canon] thus fails strict scrutiny because it completely chills a candidate’s speech on these topics while hardly advancing the state’s interest in judicial impartiality at all.”The Sixth Circuit ruling, addressing canons in Kentucky, said while a prohibition against face-to-face solicitations “particularly by sitting judges” and solicitations to parties appearing before a judge might be constitutional, the state’s broader prohibitions went too far.“Besides covering in-person solicitations and those directed at individuals with pending cases, the canon prohibits a range of other solicitations, including speeches to large groups and signed mass mailings,” the Sixth Circuit opinion said. “Such indirect methods of solicitation present little or no risk of undue pressure or the appearance of a quid pro quo. No one could reasonably believe that a failure to respond to a signed mass mailing asking for donations would result in unfair treatment in future dealings with the judge. Nor would a speech requesting donations from a large gathering have a ‘coercive effect’ on reasonable attendees.”The court ruled in Inquiry Concerning a Judge, No. 09-01 Re: N. James Turner, case no.

Competition: New land of opportunity

first_imgAs part of Property Week’s ongoing Site Life campaign, to find lively interim uses for vacant sites affected by the downturn in the development cycle, it has teamed up with specialist regeneration developer Urban Splash to launch an exciting competition.The winner will design and deliver an interim use for a prominent cleared site in Urban Splash’s New Islington development in east Manchester. The temporary use will remain in place for at least one year – the whole of 2011 – while Urban Splash develops other parts of New Islington. This competition represents the chance for an architect, artist or community group – anyone is allowed to enter – to make their mark and turn heads with an eye-catching and useful solution to a stalled site. This is the brief for the competition.The siteNew Islington is a 30 acre regeneration project in Ancoats, Manchester. The area and the city of Manchester have undergone significant regeneration over the past couple of decades and numerous developments have been completed.The New Islington project, a 10-minute walk from Piccadilly railway station and the city centre, is a key part of the regeneration plan for east Manchester. Originally the site of the failing Cardroom Estate, much work has already been done to transform the area, such as demolitions, the construction of a new park and several new canals. The first few buildings have been completed.Its historyThe Ancoats area of Manchester was well known for its cotton manufacture in the 19th century. Mills, warehouses and associated back-to-back housing covered the entire area. Most of the evidence of this has now disappeared. The neighbouring Ancoats Urban Village maintains and celebrates what is left of the buildings from this period.The New Islington site was cleared of practically all cotton-related buildings in the 1950s, making way for the Cardroom Estate, which is also now mostly demolished. Only Stubbs, a small factory building used for the manufacture of looms, and the Dispensary, the original hospital building forthe area, remain today. These derelict buildings will be retained, refurbished and brought back to life as part of the scheme.The resulting site has been completely remodelled with canals and green spaces to create the development platform, from which the new buildings are starting to appear. Most of the original residents from the estate have already been re-housed in social housing schemes on Islington Square, such as Islington Square by FAT and Guest Street by de Metz Forbes Knight.There are also new residents moving into the area. Alsop’s Chips building now includes more occupied homes than there were on the entire original estate when the project started and the construction of further homes is expected on site this summer.What’s needed?New Islington is starting to feel like a proper place. Within the next few months, the final pieces of public realm will be constructed, allowing the public into the park and canal boats into the new water spaces, which will operate as a marina. People can then begin to enjoy New Islington.However, there is still a lot to do. The scale of regeneration is vast and there are still years of construction ahead because various sites have now been cleared and are waiting for new buildings.We therefore want to make one of the most prominent cleared sites both visually attractive and interesting for residents and visitors, while it awaits development.The spaceBy next spring, the public will be able to enjoy all New Islington’s facilities. Construction work is about to commence on both sides of the site shown in the plan, so by the time these facilities open there will be lots of interest along Old Mill Street, except for the area outlined in red (see map on previous page), which will still be a cleared site with no development programmed on it for two years.Urban Splash would therefore like to complete this stretch of Old Mill Street with a temporary use – and that is where you come in.The site is roughly square and measures about 0.7 acres. It is reasonably level and the current surface is clean placed clay, which has self-seeded in recent months.In future years, the site will be developed with a commercial building along the roadside. To the rear of this building, a public square will be constructed, surrounded by town houses. This development is not programmed for a couple of years, however, so the site would suit an interim use, capable of adding further interest to Old Mill Street.What can it be?Urban Splash, together with local stakeholders New East Manchester and the Homes and Communities Agency, are completely open-minded. What we want is a use for the site that will be visually attractive, but not difficult to bring to an end after the temporary period during which it will be in place. The competition is open to all and our hope is that entries will arrive from artists, architects, entrepreneurs and thinkers.The site is clearly visible from Old Mill Street, which is used by both locals and commuters. It would therefore be good if the temporary use changed through the seasons, so people who have walked, cycled and driven past it many times can continue to experience some surprise and delight from it.With the appropriate planning, there is no reason why the public cannot be allowed on to the site, if that is the best way to experience your idea.The site is reasonably close to occupied homes, so please respect this if your plans include the use of sound and light.Don’t forget that there will be active building sites on either side of the temporary site. There will be noise and dust, so don’t propose anything which is too fragile to cope with it.Apart from that, the site is all yours – tell us what you would do (see below).How do I submit my entry?In conjunction with Property Week, a competition will be held to find the best idea for a temporary use for the site edged red on the map. Entries should comprise up to three PDF files, capable of being reproduced and understood at A3 size. Applicants are also welcome to submit a moving image file of up to three minutes duration to help explain their proposal.The submissions will then be considered by judges:Giles Barrie, Property Week editorTom Bloxham, Urban Splash chairmanDeborah McLaughlin, Homes and Communities Agency north-west regional directorEddie Smith, New East Manchester chief executiveMaria Balshaw, Whitworth Art Gallery directorIan Simpson, Ian Simpson ArchitectsAmanda Baillieu, Building Design editorThe winning entry will be announced in Property Week and work will then begin to transform your idea into reality.Who delivers the idea?We are not fussy how the idea becomes reality – you are welcome to roll your sleeves up and deliver it yourself if that works for you. Alternatively, if you have access to appropriate funds, you are welcome to employ others to develop it for you.The competition is really all about ideas. There is not currently a budget for developing the winning idea, so it may not actually be developed, but we will certainly try to work with you and other parties to find ways to make it happen.The land can be made available without charge for the whole of 2011, but all other costs would need to be funded in some way. Your submission should therefore include a cost breakdown, explaining how you suggest all parts of your idea should be funded, including installation, staffing if required and removal at the end of the temporary period.Clearly, we would like to see the winning entry developed, so the judges will be looking closely at how realistic your submission is.What are the competition deadlines?27 August 2010. All competition entries must be submitted electronically to sitelife@propertyweek.com before this date.24 September 2010. Competition winner announced in Property Week magazineOctober to December 2010. Site available to install temporary use. We would like the proposal to be physically in place by the start of 2011.1 January to 1 December 2011. Period for which the site can be used for your temporary useDecember 2011. Your installation must be removed from site during this period and the site left as you found it1 January 2012. Any items still on site will become the property of the landowner and be removed or destroyed, so please don’t leave anything behind.Terms and conditionsThose people entering the competition will take their approved concept forward to completion if selected. This will, of course, involve them attending a series of meetings to allow arrangements to be made and by submitting an entry you are agreeing to be available to attend meetings as necessary.The competition is open to anyone 18 years of age and over. By submitting an entry you will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these terms and conditions.The ownership of copyright in the work of all submissions will be in accordance with the Copyright and Patent Act 1988 – that is, copyright rests with the author.However, we reserve the right to publish such material in whole or in part, or use them in any way we think fit in connection with the site or this competition without the permission of the entrant or payment for such use (but always subject to the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998).No registration fee exists for this competition. All costs and disbursements incurred by entrants in preparing a submission are the sole responsibility of the entrant.last_img read more
