Half-time: Chelsea 2 Inter Milan 0

first_imgOscar’s lovely finish and Eden Hazard’s cool penalty were the highlights of a classy first-half display by Chelsea in their pre-season friendly in Indianapolis. They made the perfect start to their opening Guinness International Champions Cup match, going ahead after only 11 minutes when Oscar beautifully curled home.And the Blues doubled their lead when Hazard tucked away the spot-kick after Victor Moses had been fouled in the box.Chelsea dominated most of the half, although Petr Cech produced a fine save to keep out Rodrigo Palacio’s deflected effort.Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Ramires, Van Ginkel; Moses, Oscar, Hazard; Lukaku.

Endangered fynbos gets protection

first_imgFynbos at the Bothasig Nature Conservation Area. (Image: City of Cape Town) MEDIA CONTACTS • Julia Wood   Manager, Biodiversity Management  Department  +27 21 514 4155 RELATED ARTICLES • Floral wealth in caring hands • Protea hotspot under scrutiny • Research to boost rooibos exportsLucille DavieCape Flats plain fynbos, a critically endangered species of flora, has gained another refuge in Cape Town.The Bothasig Nature Conservation Area has been established in the suburb of Bothasig, under the umbrella of the Protected Areas Act, after a 10-year battle to get it declared. The drivers of the campaign were ward councillor James Vos and the city’s biodiversity management department.The 10ha site, 15km north-west of the city centre, was previously an illegal dumping ground and a home to vagrants. “I am pleased to announce that what was a dumping ground and magnet for criminal and anti-social activities is now becoming an area of natural beauty that can be enjoyed and appreciated by all who visit it,” said Vos. “I believe that the establishment of nature reserves and conservation areas are essential in the rebalancing of our environment and our community.”Less than 1% of the Cape Flats plain fynbos is conserved. Bothasig also contains two seasonal wetlands. A fence will be erected around the perimeter of the site, with controlled access. All alien vegetation will be removed and a series of pathways, with signage, will be constructed.Vos said the development “provides a wonderful opportunity to preserve the natural environment within a fast-developing urban landscape”. “Complementing the existing conservation areas alongside Edgemead and towards the Tygerberg Nature Reserve, these conservation sites will benefit the community as a whole in the years to come. This was achieved through much hard work and perseverance.”There are 10 other sites in Cape Town that preserve Cape Flats plain fynbos, including Rondebosch Common, Blaauwberg Conservation Area, Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve, and Milnerton Racecourse Nature Reserve.Cape Town has thousands of indigenous plant species, with 190 endemic to the city and occurring nowhere else in the world. The city and environs has many different soil types and micro climates which support these unique plant species.Natural shrubland or heathlandFynbos is the natural shrubland or heathland vegetation occurring in a small belt of Western and Eastern Cape. It thrives in winter rainfall coastal and mountainous areas with a Mediterranean climate. The Cape’s fynbos is known for its exceptional biodiversity. It grows in a narrow 100km to 200km coastal belt stretching from Clanwilliam on the west coast to Port Elizabeth on the south-east coast, and forms part of the Cape floral kingdom, where it makes up 80% of the plant species found in the area. Of the world’s six floral kingdoms, it is the smallest and richest per unit of area.Vos is working, too, to preserve Cape Flats sand fynbos, which is also critically endangered. “I am working very closely with the staff from the Tygerberg Nature Reserve to consider additional conservation measures such as the restoration of the critically endangered Cape Flats sand fynbos as well as the introduction of other rare plant species; and the putting into practice of educational signage and footpaths,” he explained.The Cape Floristic Region, in which the Cape Floral Kingdom occurs, has a high proportion of unique and endangered species, and as a result is considered a global biodiversity hot spot, according to the department.“The City of Cape Town presents a difficult challenge for biodiversity conservation among cities within South Africa, and possibly globally, as the urban footprint coincides with many unique vegetation types and habitats,” the department states on the City’s website.21 natural vegetation typesOf the 21 national vegetation types in South Africa that are considered Critically Endangered, 10 occur within the city. Of these, three occur nowhere else but within the city’s boundary.A further six threatened vegetation types occur in the city. The Cape Flats is an area that has been under-conserved and has experienced huge urban sprawl dating back decades. This area alone supports more than 1 460 different plant species of which 203 species are threatened with extinction, and five are globally extinct in the wild.“We need to conserve biodiversity, not only for its own sake and for future generations, but because intact natural habitats offer many benefits to humankind, including an improved quality of life and health through the many ecosystem goods and services they provide.“Well-managed natural areas offer recreational and educational as well as sustainable harvesting and nature-based tourism opportunities, and are known to enhance adjacent property values,” says the department.last_img read more

Planning a New Home: Where to Spend the Money?

first_imgThat’s the subject of this week’s Q&A spotlight. A tight, well-insulated building envelope is fundamental to a high-performance house. So is a heating and cooling system that keeps it comfortable with a minimum input of energy. What happens when the construction budget can’t handle the added costs of high-quality windows and extra insulation as well as high-efficiency mechanicals?That basic question is what’s plaguing Dave W as he works to complete plans for his new home.“Which would you recommend for spending $$ on first: better windows and insulation to reduce heating/cooling requirements, or higher efficiency systems (including geothermal) to reduce costs for meeting the requirements?” he asks in a Q&A post at GreenBuildingAdvisor.“Perfect world would obviously mean doing both,” he adds, “but limited resources ($$) means we’re probably going to have to make [a] choice between options.” RELATED ARTICLES Concerns over minisplit performanceJesse Lizer wonders what happens to the performance in extremely cold temperatures. Moreover, in researching options for his own house (which he covers in a separate Q&A post, Lizer says that ground-source heat pump systems aren’t necessarily that expensive. One quote he’s gotten puts the cost of a ground-source system at $13,000 (after tax credits), which would be substantially less than the special cold-weather ductless minisplit system one manufacturer recommends.The key, Holladay points out, is that a superinsulated house loses heat very slowly, so anything short of a prolonged cold snap shouldn’t be a concern. “If you’re worried,” he write, “install a couple of inexpensive electric-resistance space heaters to get you through the occasional cold snap. That’s a lot cheater than a $25,000 ground-source heat pump.” Weighing the allure of a ground-source heat pumpA geothermal system (more accurately referred to as a ground-source heat pump) is especially intriguing for many homeowners, including Dave. The systems are electrically operated, so they don’t burn any fuel directly, and they can return several times more heat than the energy required to operate them.This energy output-to-input ratio, called the coefficient of performance or COP, is what makes ground-source heat pumps so attractive. The systems are also better suited to cold climates than conventional air-source heat pumps, some of which need a boost from electric resistance elements when temperatures fall into the 30s.The main reason for the high cost of a ground-source heat pump is the expense of installing the ground loop, whether installed horizontally in trenches or vertically in bore holes. And improvements in air-to-air heat pump technology, including the ductless minisplit systems now offered by several Asian manufacturers, could be game-changers.“Ductless minisplit heat pumps have an average COP that is nearly the same as most geo-source heat pumps,” Kevin Dickson tells Dave, “yet the installation cost is just a fraction of what a central geo-source heat pump would cost. More efficiency improvements are happening in the air-to-air heat pump arena,” he adds, “but the cost of drilling and/or laying geo-source coils is not going down. I’m betting on air-to-air technology to make geo-source technology obsolete very soon.” Spending where it countsDuctless minisplit systems begin to look very attractive in superinsulated houses where heating loads are very low and conventional heating equipment is overkill. And that’s at the heart of Dave’s dilemma.“The answer to your question is simple: skip the ground-source heat pump, for the reasons that Kevin mentioned, and focus your attention on improving the thermal envelope of your home,” writes GBA senior editor Martin Holladay. “Anyone who pays attention to these issues realize that for a single-family house, a ground-source heat pump makes no economic sense compared to the ductless minisplit heat pumps from Asia, which are capable of heating a home when the outdoor air temperature is -17 degrees F.”Armando Cobo put it this way: “Whether you have limited resources or not, every house should have: 1. Top envelope seal job and moisture management detailing. 2. Best insulation that you can afford. 3. Best windows that you can afford. Those three will reduce your heating and cooling loads to the max (within you budget), where you can reduce the size of the HVAC system. Hopefully, the HVAC system is designed, installed and commissioned properly.”James Morgan also signs on for the envelope-over-mechanicals priority list, summing up with this: “A top-of-the-line bilge pump is only needed if you have a very leaky boat.” Heating a Tight, Well-Insulated HouseEquipment Versus Envelope Q&A: Do geothermal systems live up to the hype?Green Basics: Heat PumpsGreen Basics: Insulation Overview Our expert’s opinionHere’s what Peter Yost, GBA’s technical director, had to say:It feels a bit like piling on, but optimizing the building envelope as much as you can afford over the space conditioning systems is the clear winner in my book.A couple of key points:Importance of design: Spending money on optimizing the building envelope means spending money on design first. Building configurations, window placement, and total square area of glazing have a lot of influence on building performance, even before you get to building assembly design and construction. And layout can become really important if you get the space conditioning loads low enough such that an open floor plan means minimized distribution.Do what we do best: As a builder or remodeler, optimizing the building envelope performance is largely in your control whereas optimizing the HVAC system is likely to place much of that control in someone else’s hands. Systems such as ground source heat pumps, in my experience, are very dependent on the quality of installation and the engineering of the system. Spending the money on your expertise and craftsmanship is a more certain return, in my book.Shift to importance of other loads: Interestingly, if you get your space conditioning loads low enough, then the performance of equipment related to other loads — such as hot water, appliances, and lighting — can become as important to your overall energy performance as your HVAC system and its performance.Long-term logic: Lastly, you can almost always change out mechanical equipment much more easily than you can radically change building envelope performance, particularly when the space conditioning loads are relatively small because of your killer envelope. Put your money in the envelope — initially and for the long run.last_img read more
