MH370 comment: The search should continue.

first_imgThe definition of “specific” is  playing  a key role in deciding whether the governments involved in the search for the missing Boeing 777 that operated Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 will end their involvement when the current 120,000 sq. km search area has been swept.Two of the three governments have now rolled out the word in their response to a report by experts that there remains a high probability the wreckage is in a 25,000 sq. km area north of the current zone.Australian Transport Minister Darren Chester signalled on Tuesday that he did not think the new 25,000 sq, km area was specific enough to meet the criteria set down by officials from the three governments —  Malaysia, China and Australia — in July.Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tong Lai was singing from the same hymn sheet when he said Malaysia retained its “aspiration” to locate MH370.“While the report presented a thorough analysis of MH370 search efforts, we remain to be guided as to how this can be used to assist us in identifying the specific location of the aircraft,’’ Liow said.“The Governments of Australia, Malaysia and People’s Republic of China during the Ministerial Tripartite meeting in July 2016 have agreed that consideration will be given in determining next steps should credible new information emerge which can be used to identify the location of the aircraft.“I wish to reiterate that the aspiration to locate MH370 has not been abandoned and every decision made has and will always be in the spirit of cooperation among the three nations.’’All three governments should bite the bullet and do the right thing for the families of the 239 passengers and crew lost with MH370.Any government genuinely committed to finding the crashed Boeing 777  would search the area that the experts at November’s “First Principles Review”  said should be searched.The fact that the wreckage was not found in the first 120,000 sq. km search area may well mean we were looking in the wrong place but we were doing it for all the right reasons. That was the place to which all the facts we had at the time pointed. Now there are new facts, including a drift study by the CSIRO, that says it may be in a different area.Nor is this a finding group of a people who were dragged in off the street to voice their pet theory of what happened on that tragic night in 2014 when the plane veered off course. These were experts from around the world who took a forensic look at every scrap of information on the missing plane and said it’s worth continuing the search into this new area.They included Boeing 777 captains, representatives from accident investigators in the US, the UK and Malaysia as well as scientists, manufacturer Boeing and technology companies such as Inmarsat and Thales.Once this area is area is searched, they’ve acknowledged, the possibilities suggested by what little evidence they have will be exhausted.But until those possibilities are exhausted  the victims’ families are entitled to be outraged that not everything has been done to locate the plane.last_img read more

Building With Steel Framing

first_imgInsulating a steel wall has its challengesIf a steel-framed wall is to have cavity insulation, there is still the question of what kind and how it should be installed. Dense-packed cellulose is often placed behind a “scrim,” Morgan says, that’s simple to attach to wood framing but not so easy with steel studs.And if Lombardo is considering the use of fiberglass batts, he’ll find problems there as well. “Fiberglass batts are not the best choice,” he writes. “If you do go in that direction, a standard 14.5-in. batt designed for wood studs will not fit correctly. The batt has to be the full width of the stud bay and must fit into the web of the steel stud which is not so easy to achieve consistently.”Lombardo has read about a technique for wrapping steel framing in “Stud Snuggler” foam to reduce thermal bridging, which might be adapted to a DIY-friendly approach. And Johns Manville’s Spider Custom Insulation, which is blown-in fiberglass, also has possibilities.Moreover, says Dorsett, batts in widths that do fit steel framing area available in both fiberglass and rock wool.But in the end, he says, there’s still the problem of thermal bridging. “There really isn’t a good way around the high thermal conductivity of steel though, even at 24-in. o.c. framing the whole-wall R values will always come in at about half the center-cavity R, whereas with wood studs and R3.2-R4/inch cavity fill the whole wall values come in at something on the order of 75% of the center-cavity value even at 16-in. o.c. spacing,” Dorsett says. If Lombardo could add even more insulation on the outside of the wall — 6 in. rather than the 4 in. he has proposed — he’ll end up with a “pretty decent wall,” Holladay says. “Just remember to keep all of your insulation on the exterior side of your wall framing.”Holladay wrote that cavity insulation in steel framing is “basically worthless” — an assessment that he later admitted was a slight exaggeration — and pointed to comments by Joseph Lstiburek of Building Science Corporation: “Put an R-19 batt in a steel stud wall and you are lucky to get R-5 to R-6 in the real world. That’s equal thermal resistance wise to about 1 inch of rigid insulation installed on the outside of the steel studs.” (For more information from Lstiburek, see “A Bridge Too Far.”)Holladay also pointed to GBA’s own Encyclopedia, which cites a California Energy Commission claim that a steel stud conducts 10 times as much heat as dimensional lumber. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found that thermal bridging in a wood-framed wall lowers the effectiveness of cavity insulation by 10%, but performance drops a whopping 55% in a wall framed with steel. Sal Lombardo is planning a new home in the New York-New Jersey area (Climate Zone 5) and is looking at a long list of high-performance construction options: double-stud walls, structural insulated panels, insulating concrete forms, Larsen trusses, and walls built with light-gauge steel framing.Wait a minute. Steel framing, as in the stuff that leaks heat through the building envelope like a proverbial sieve? Maybe, Lombardo says, it deserves another look.“Steel seems like a really good option,” Lombardo writes in a Q&A post at GreenBuildingAdvisor. “Almost unheard of in my area, despite being upwards of 60% recycled, it lasts forever (relatively speaking), is super strong, straight, creates minimal waste, is not affected by termites, pests, or mold, and is equal or close to wood in cost (depending on who you ask).“I know it has very high thermal conductivity. However, there are configurations that can abate this significantly,” he adds, such as a double layer of 2-in. polyiso foam on the exterior.“Why isn’t it more popular?” Lombardo asks. “Am I missing something?”Those questions are the topic for this month’s Q&A Spotlight. Thermal BridgingThermal Bridges Waste Energy A Bridge Too FarGreen Basics: Steel Studs You’ll get a good, but not great, wallAccording to GBA senior editor Martin Holladay, the main problem with steel framing is thermal bridging. Because the effect is so pronounced, all of the wall insulation should go on the outside. Insulation placed in stud cavities won’t accomplish much.“You’re right that it’s possible to install two layers of 2-inch polyiso, giving you R-26,” Holladay writes, “That’s OK, but it’s not great.” RELATED ARTICLES center_img Aren’t we overstating the problem?Lombardo isn’t alone in wondering why steel framing doesn’t get more serious attention.“I am also curious as to why steel hasn’t caught up a little more attention in residential framing in Canada and the USA,” writes Jin Kazama. “I tend to like concrete because of its long-term life. Steel and aluminum are also materials I favor because of the same factor.”Steel framing is very inexpensive when considered from a weight/strength standpoint, he adds. Kazama points in particular to the buildings designed by Blue Sky Building Systems as an intriguing use of steel framing.Referring to research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, James Morgan writes that the effect of using steel framing is more complicated than the California Energy Commission would suggest. “I could find no suggestion that the tests support omitting cavity insulation,” he says, “and the tests show a pretty good R-20 wall with just 2 in. of continuous outside insulation. If you’re headed for R-30 and beyond, though, I can see why piling foam board insulation on the outside of the wall would ultimately lead to a strategy of leaving the cavity empty — why bother with filling a perfectly good service cavity with fiber to get a measly R-9 or so when you can get the same results by adding another inch or so of polyiso on the outside? But this strategy would apply to a wood-framed wall equally well, once you transition from seeing external insulation as thermal bridge and condensation protection to seeing it as the complete insulation package.”Morgan says that an Oak Ridge National Lab research paper mentions advanced technologies using steel studs that “suggest the potential for a thermally efficient structural alternative to wood framing.” In case of fire, you’re on your ownIn addition to thermal bridging, there’s another problem with steel framing, says Jon Leeth, and that’s what happens in the case of a serious structure fire. “The primary reason I opted not to frame my house with steel was by advice from my insulator (cellulose) who is also a fireman,” Leeth says. “His firefighting perspective was that a burning structure will give fairly reliable clues to structural stability when framed with wood. Metal structures get to that magical temperature where the metal turns very quickly from solid to liquid.“He said as soon as they determine a structure is steel-framed, all firefighting efforts are immediately limited to the exterior of the building. Absolute evacuation and no re-entry aside from human rescue effort. They would not fight the fire on the inside if the building was believed to be evacuated.”Those concerns are echoed by Malcolm Taylor, president of his local fire department. “Houses framed with steel studs still contain all the other combustible structural components and contents that fuel fires,” Taylor writes. “The unpredictable collapse of light steel stud walls is a well known phenomenon. Whether that’s enough of a worry to influence your choice of materials when building a home is another question.” Our expert’s opinionHere’s how GBA technical director Peter Yost looks at the question:When I was at the NAHB Research Center not long after Hurricane Andrew, we had a big light-gauge steel-framing project down in Homestead, Florida. They had a very experienced steel framer as the lead contractor and I was amazed at how fast they were at fastening with tapped screws — not nails — and wielding their screw guns as well or better than I swung a hammer. And their cut list accuracy meant very little framing waste, with what they generated very easy to recycle.So those who think you can’t make steel framing efficient economically I say this: There is a learning curve with any job site change, and switching to steel is simply one of them.Another real advantage of light-gauge steel framing is the ability to gauge to the load; it is a much better use of materials to be able to move from 12 to 25 gauge as the load/application allows. And as a formed material, every framing member is true, every time.But from a hygrothermal standpoint, I can only add — to the excellent points already made regarding energy performance — these two:Condensation. Even small thermal bridging sets up for significant risk of interstitial condensation, exacerbated by the next point.Buffering capacity. This is the amount of water that a material or assembly can “hold” or tolerate without deterioration (for more, see this research paper). Joe Lstiburek is famous for many things, but his “Joe math” attracts a lot of us builder types. Here is one of my favorites: For a 2,000-sq.-ft. home framed with steel, the hygric buffer capacity is about 5 gallons of water; wood-framed, it’s about 50 gallons; and for masonry walls it’s approximately 5,000 gallons.So, when condensation happens in a steel-framed assembly, it’s the really low hygric buffer capacity that ramps up the significance of that condensation. The wall may have very little tolerance for that moisture.My conclusion: if you are considering light-gauge steel framing, use the BSC “perfect wall” approach. Keep all of your R-value to the exterior, and let that steel be part of the interior conditions (or nearly so) of the building. And the more severe the climate, the more stringent my recommendation is.last_img read more

Simple Framing Tips to Dramatically Improve Your Cinematography

first_imgWith such a heavy focus being placed on the technological aspects of cinematography these days, many DPs have lost sight of some of the fundamentals of the craft that can be far more important, like framing choices.I would argue that the way in which images are framed has a greater affect on the viewer experience than just about any other choice made on set with regards to cinematography. Capturing high resolution video files with wide dynamic range is great, but in large part these are technical achievements, not creative ones. Yes, an argument can be made that a high DR look can be a creative choice, but 99% of the time when a semi-professional or amateur DP is going for a high DR look it’s simply because of what they have read and seen online, and is not a specific creative choice for their project.Somehow the art of framing has become lost in recent years, with so many indie films now looking like student productions. That’s not to say that they look bad, but rather than they all look the same…and this is in large part due to framing that might be technically fine, but isn’t unique to the story or concept in any way. If you’re like me, and appreciate the art of framing and what it can do for a great film, then read on for my top 5 video framing tips that can dramatically improve your work.Use the Rule of ThirdsI’ll start with the most obvious tip on this list, because it’s one that we all know but are also all guilty of not executing properly. The rule of thirds simply states that you need to think of your image in three main parts: Frame left, center, and frame right. You can also take this further and imagine three additional sections (from top to bottom), creating 9 slices of any given frame – as seen in the reference photo below.You generally want your subject to fall into one of the three main sections of the frame, and by doing so you are pretty much guaranteed to achieve an image that is technically sound. There may be times that you’re going to intentionally want to break the rule of thirds (more on that later), but even then you need to know the rule of thirds to ensure that when you go against it it’s a calculated choice.Create Symmetry (or Asymmetry)Creating symmetry in your work is one of the most effective ways to capture images that feel well composed and are generally pleasing to look at. Symmetry gives the viewer a sense of balance that subconsciously allows them to become more immersed in what they are watching, as they feel drawn into the characters, setting or scene by the leading lines in the frame.Image from Nicolas Alejandro on FlickrThe reverse approach can be just as effective however, as shooting images that are intentionally off balanced, left of center, or otherwise off kilter will create a sense of disconnection and instability with the viewers. Going asymmetrical could work really well for specific scenes or genres – namely horrors and thrillers.Avoid Eye Level ShootingOne of the most important lessons that I learned as a DP was to avoid eye level shooting. By eye-level shooting, I literally mean placing the camera at an eye level to your subject, which can leave the image looking sterile.In some circumstances, eye level shooting can work well (especially for a scene that is supposed to intentionally be benign, or for a documentary style shoot). However, in most dramatic instances I would advise you to always have the camera placed just above or just below eye level. The reason being that you want to take advantage of the opportunity to either empower or diminish the character you are shooting by way of your framing choice. It’s rare that a character in any given scene is going to be completely neutral, so by subtly shooting just slightly up or down on your character, you can start to guide the emotional experience of the viewer in a very subtle way.Have a ThemeIt’s really important that you have a theme or guideline for yourself when setting out to shoot any project. An example of a visual theme or motif that you might choose to explore would be empty space. Let’s say you are shooting a film that deals with very lonely characters that feel isolated from each other. It would be a great visual choice to shoot them with lots of open, empty space on either side of them so that their loneliness and isolation is conveyed to the viewer effectively. You also might choose to frame the characters in single shots, as opposed to two shots, since that will also make them feel more disconnected from each other. This clearly is just one example, but the point is you want to pick a theme and run with it – whatever it may be, to ensure that you are creating a distinct visual style that is unique to your film.Shoot with IntentionThinking through your shots – how they add to the story you’re trying to tell – cannot be underestimated. If you’re going to break the rules, make it intentional.  By understanding the purpose behind the rules that you are breaking, you will understand the effect that your approach will have on the audience, and the meaning behind your choices will be felt much more clearly.last_img read more

Former Assam MP of ‘doubtful’ citizenship passes away

first_imgMani Kumar Subba, a controversial former MP from Assam whose allegedly doubtful citizenship was probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation passed away in Delhi on Sunday night after a prolonged battle with illness.Going by the age mentioned in the affidavit he filed for contesting the Tezpur Lok Sabha seat in 2014, he was 61.Mr Subba was the wealthiest MP from the northeast before perfume baron Badruddin Ajmal of the All India United Democratic Front was elected to the Parliament from Assam in 2006. But he was in the news more for the controversial lotteries his firm MS Associates ran in several states and a row over his citizenship.Mr. Subba claimed to have been born in March 1958 in West Bengal’s Darjeeling. This claim was challenged by Ashok Kumar Subba, a leader of the erstwhile Janata Party who lodged a complaint saying that the former MP was a foreign national born in Taplejung district of Nepal.CBI probe Former Chief Minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta took up Mr. Subba’s citizenship issue with the Centre. G.K. Pillai, then the Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs, asked the CBI in December 1997 to inquire into the allegations that Mr Subba, then an MLA from the Naoboisa constituency was a foreigner.The CBI registered a case against him in January 1998, a few months before he won the Lok Sabha election from the Tezpur constituency on a Congress ticket.In its charge sheet filed in the court of the special judicial magistrate, Assam, in January 2011, the CBI said Mr Subba was a Nepali national and his actual name was Mani Raj Limbu. The investigating agency also accused him of obtaining a passport based on forged documents.The Nepal government, replying to the court’s letter a year later, said Mr Subba was not a citizen of Nepal and that one Mani Raj Limbu was convicted for murder and sentenced to life imprisonment but was released from jail in 1982.Lottery scamMr Subba’s opponents say that in 1962 he came from Nepal to Sikkim, then an independent country, where he worked as a plantation labourer. His supporters say he did work as a farm hand in East Sikkim, but went there from Darjeeling.In 1965, he migrated to Tinsukia in Upper Assam where he reportedly set up a gambling business. A few years later he went to Arunachal Pradesh and married a relative of the Frontier State’s former Chief Minister Gegong Apang.This link soon made him one of the biggest contractors in Arunachal Pradesh. His political graph climbed when in 1991 former Assam Chief Minister Hiteswar Saikia offered him a Congress ticket for the Naoboisa Assembly constituency.But trouble caught up with Mr Subba when his firm defaulted in payments to the Sikkim, Manipur and Nagaland governments while running lotteries on their behalf. His firm came under the scanner after the Comptroller and Auditor General detected a massive scam in the conduct of the Nagaland State Lottery in 1999.The Nagaland government, the CAG discovered, earned only a minuscule revenue from the lottery that ran for four years. While 91% of the face value of tickets was to be paid as prize money, only 78% was actually given away. The scam worked out to more than Rs 400 crore, the CAG report said.‘Gandhiji’s blessings’The scams did not affect Mr Subba’s influence on the Congress in Assam. The party kept fielding him from the Tezpur Lok Sabha constituency.Mr Subba’s would attribute his victory to “Gandhiji’s blessings” and would often assert this while pointing to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s profile on a currency note while addressing public rallies. His graph nosedived after he lost the 2009 election to Asom Gana Parishad’s Joseph Toppo.He contested the seat in 2014 as an independent when the Congress denied him a ticket. He finished third behind the Bharatiya Janata Party’s Ram Prasad Sarmah, an advocate who pursued the citizenship case against him, and Bhupen Kumar Borah of the Congress.Mr Subba took ill while campaigning that year and was suffering from heart ailment since. “Bhagwan unki atma ko shanti de (may his soul rest in peace),” Mr Sarmah, who was denied a ticked by the BJP this time, said.last_img read more
