History-making Olympian Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn

first_imgConsidering herself an unyielding soul, history-making double Olympic silver medallist Juliet Cuthbert-Flynn had no doubts that she would win a parliamentary seat as throughout life – in athletics as well as everyday pursuits – she has never settled for anything but the best.Cuthbert-Flynn earned double Olympic silver medals in the 100m and 200m at the 1992 Barcelona Games in Spain and copped bronze four years later in Atlanta, United States, as a member of Jamaica’s 4x100m women’s team.”I didn’t settle for second (1992 Olympics). It is what it is. Anything that I do, anyone who knows me knows that I am going to try to do the best that I can and not going to ever do anything half and half. Never!” she stressed.The 51-year-old on Thursday became Jamaica’s first Olympian to win a seat in Parliament.She emphatically upstaged two-time parliamentarian Paul Buchanan for the St Andrew West Rural constituency.Cuthbert-Flynn, running in her first election, polled 9,742 votes to Buchanan’s 7,517.ALWAYS CONFIDENT”I was always confident of victory because I was putting in the work. I was walking sometimes six, seven days a week, and I was walking for five to six hours a day. I walked off two pairs of sneakers. The bottoms fell off,” she told The Gleaner in an interview.Though many would consider her a celebrity and international star, Cuthbert-Flynn contends that she still joins lines in public places like banks and lives a low-key life.”Representing your country in track and field, it’s little bit different. I think it’s going to be little bit different representing the people of the country in Parliament because when you are running, you’re running for yourself in a lot of ways and the country gets the glory, but I think in this race and in this instance, it is a little bit different. It’s not just for me. It’s not really about me, It’s really about the people. That’s how I look at it,” she pointed out.Cuthbert-Flynn describes her journey in life as an Olympian and politician as an important one, one that has inspired and motivated people, but she adds that she now considers herself a public servant.”I think just seeing the things that I’ve seen on my journey, it gives me that extra push where I must give a hundred per cent and I must do for the people. I must work for the people. There is no half and half … I want to leave a legacy just like I have in track and field,” she remarked.”I have left a legacy in track and field that no one can ever take away from me. They can tell me that I got second, but I am in the history books forever and ever,” she added.last_img read more

Economy bounces back

first_imgThese two sectors – finance, real estate and business services, and wholesale, retail and motor trade – are among the three biggest in South Africa’s economy, accounting for 20.7% and 14% of GDP respectively in the second quarter. Manufacturing accounted for 15.9%. South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth was higher than expected in the second quarter, rising 4.9% quarter-on-quarter and 4.5% year-on-year, with mining and manufacturing bouncing back and agriculture also showing strength. Business Unity South Africa (Busa) said the data confirmed that a recession in South Africa was unlikely, although a more realistic appraisal of the state of the economy would only be possible once third- and fourth-quarter statistics became available. Strong performers in the second quarter were agriculture (nearly 20% growth), mining (15.6%) and manufacturing (14.5%). Busa said in a statement on Tuesday that, while it saw the second-quarter growth as largely a rebound following the country’s electricity crisis in the first quarter, the figures indicated that South Africa’s overall growth outlook remained positive. An improved outlook for international oil prices and inflation in the medium term also suggested that, though inflation could worsen in the months ahead, interest rates might have peaked. “If so, there is the potential for interest rates to begin to decline in about mid-2009,” the organisation said. But the country’s wholesale, retail and motor trade sector (including hotels and restaurants) shrank by 2.2%, its first contraction since 2001, as the combined five percentage point increase in interest rates over the past two years took its toll on consumer spending. 20 August 2008center_img Busa based its evaluation on the positive outlook for SA’s agricultural sector this year, improved reliability in the electricity supply, and the continued high level of capital investment in the country, especially the R500-billion investment in infrastructure the government is set to make over the next three years. SAinfo reporter. Sources: Finance, real estate and business services were similarly affected, with growth in the sector slowing further, from 4.9% in the first quarter to 2.3% in the second quarter. Releasing the latest figures on Tuesday, Statistics South Africa said that real quarterly GDP increased by 4.9% in the second quarter, compared to 2.1% growth in the first quarter. While 2008 would still be a tough year for businesses and consumers, Busa forecast economic growth of at least 3% for 2008 – well below the 5.1% South Africa achieved in 2007, but better than many have predicted in the context of a global economic slowdown.

Passivhaus Apartment Complex Would be a Giant

first_imgWhen ready for occupancy in early 2017, the 276-unit riverfront apartment complex would be the largest Passivhaus-certified building in the country and, according to its developer, help Passivhaus construction shed its “boutique” status and begin to interest big institutional investors.The “Second and Delaware” project, named for its location in a historic warehouse district just north of downtown Kansas City, will include a range of apartment sizes, from 550-square-foot studios to 1,300-square-foot, two-bedroom models. It also will feature rooftop gardens and an underground 500-vehicle parking garage.The $60 million project is the work of the Arnold Development Group, which hopes to show that projects that are good for the environment and for the people who live in them also can have an attractive bottom line. It would dwarf what is now the largest Passivhaus project in North America, the 57-unit Orchards at Orenco project in Hillsboro, Oregon.Company founder and CEO Jonathan Arnold said by telephone that the Kansas City project is an effort to construct a building that will last hundreds of years, “amortizing” the carbon footprint of construction over a very long time frame. He hopes it will convince institutional investors, which now buy most big multifamily projects in the country, that structures built to the Passivhaus standard are better long-term investments than less expensive buildings with lower initial costs but lower life expectancies.Arnold Development will seek certification through the Passive House Institute U.S. (PHIUS). Insulated concrete walls will be 16 inches thickThe apartments will be built around a central courtyard; the south-facing walls will be four stories tall and those on the north side stepped up to as much as six stories high. Unlike a “Texas doughnut” multifamily design that places outward-looking apartments around a core parking area, this project will enhance a sense of community with open space where residents can gather.The exterior walls will be what Arnold called a “concrete sandwich wall” consisting of a 6-inch-thick wythe on the outside, a 4-inch-thick wythe on the inside, and a 6-inch layer of expanded polystyrene foam insulation in the middle. Inner and outer layers of concrete will be connected with fiberglass ties placed every 18 inches. The ties, Arnold said, have very high tensile strength and a low potential for thermal bridging.Wall insulation will run continuously up to the parapet level to meet the tapered rigid insulation in the roof, which will vary in thickness from 12 inches to 15 inches. Original plans called for polyiso insulation in the roof, but Arnold said that could be changed in favor of extruded polystyrene.The buildings will be constructed with an innovative concrete-forming technique in which walls, floor slabs and columns are poured as a monolithic unit. The aluminum forms made by Western Forms are engineered for this specific job and can be assembled two to five times faster than conventional concrete forms, Arnold said, helping to lower construction costs.With the monolithic concrete pours and continuous insulation, he said, the building achieves what Passivhaus certification requires — a continuous, non-thermal bridging insulation layer and, thanks to the concrete, very low levels of air leakage.A “structural grid system” designed for the project by its structural engineers includes concrete columns on roughly 30-foot centers, allowing interior walls that are not load-bearing. On the first floor, Arnold said, this design would permit a change in use from residential to something else — an urgent care center, for example — at some point in the future without changing the structure of the building.“Some of this started with a trip to Rome and looking at the Parthenon and saying, ‘This building has been around for 2,000 years, practically,’” Arnold said. “‘This is really incredible. Imagine if we could make a flexible structure that, if maintained, could last a very long time.” When building means more more than making a profitArnold’s work with a United Nations sustainable development project and the Rio +20 conference convinced him that some sustainable housing solutions were just too big for most non-profits to handle. They required the financial muscle of a larger for-profit corporation, but rules governing conventional corporations were too restrictive.Arnold Development is a registered B Corporation, a designation which allows corporate officers to pursue projects even when they don’t necessarily maximize shareholder value. A B Corporation is free to look for what Arnold called a “triple bottom line” — results that benefit people, planet, and profit.Part of that formula will be the inclusion of affordable housing in the Kansas City mix; 20% of the apartments will be earmarked for people who earn 50% of the average median income in the area. And those apartments will be mixed in with those selling at market rates. “The idea is you nip gentrification in the bud,” Arnold said.According an article in The Kansas City Star, Arnold hopes to introduce a financing plan that allows residents to build equity in the property by purchasing shares in a real estate investment trust (REIT) rather than simply paying rent.“The REIT model has the potential to revolutionize the rental housing market by effectively turning renters into owners in the underlying real estate assets,” he told the newspaper. “Within a generation, entire neighborhoods made up of sustainable, long-lasting, multifamily housing could be ‘owner-occupied’ and debt-free.” Renewable energy in the mixStaengl Engineering estimates monthly utility bills for tenants will range from $17.24 for someone living in a 550-square-foot studio to a high of $40.76 for a 1,300-square-foot apartment. Energy consumption would be 235 kWh and 555 kWh respectively.Heating and cooling will be provided by a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system with an energy-recovery ventilator (ERV) located at each floor level. Domestic hot water will be produced by a Capstone Microturbine running on natural gas.Triple-pane windows will have a whole-window U-factor of 0.13 and a solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) of 0.4, according to Staengl’s report.The project will have a photovoltaic array on the top of each of the two C-shaped buildings, for a total rated capacity of 150 kW.Galen Staengl said by telephone that while the R-value of the exterior wall (R-23) seems low for a Passivhaus structure, the building has a much higher ratio of interior space to wall than a single-family building would have.“The more interesting thing is that in multifamily buildings, with a good surface-to-volume ratio, the insulation levels that are required are much lower than for a single-family residence purely because of that improved surface-to-volume ratio,” he said.“Passivhaus requirements are envelope requirements,” he continued. “There’s an envelope load requirement but it’s a per-square-foot number, and so in a big multifamily building where you have a very advantageous surface-to-volume ratio, there’s a lot less heat loss in general. Because you’re starting out with that advantage, the additional insulation required to get to a Passivhaus wall is much lower, and in some cases is actually approaching code on the wall.” Big enough to make a difference in the industrySecond and Delaware, which Arnold Development plans to own as well as develop, is big enough to show large institutional investors a type of construction that is not only feasible but profitable. Smaller projects, those with fewer than 250 apartments, are outside the sweet spot for large investors, he said, so a meaningful shift in the housing industry will require projects that institutional investors are willing to underwrite.“What we wanted to do was move Passivhaus out of the small boutique kind of scale,” he said. “Institutional investors — pension funds, and REITS, life insurance companies — are the ones that are buying the majority of multifamilies in the U.S., and they’re not going to buy a 100-unit project. It’s not big enough for them. Two hundred and fifty units is the low end of the sweet spot for maximizing onsite labor. If you have less than 250 units, the institutional investors have found the economies of scale aren’t there.“If we really want to make an impact on what’s being built,” Arnold continued, “we need to build product at a scale that’s going to be attractive to their investment criteria. This is the first truly institutional scale, institutional investor scale, project.”There are also good financial reasons for embracing Passivhaus construction, he said. Although higher in cost initially, they will have lower operating costs, much lower long-term maintenance costs and will prove to be more profitable than projects that are “myopically focused on first costs.”last_img read more

Week 15 NFL Elo Ratings And Playoff Odds

Remember the Seattle Seahawks? For all 137.6 decibels of noise at CenturyLink Field, they’ve been relatively quiet this year. The Seahawks have been one of the most consistent teams in the NFL, rarely blowing anybody out and rarely getting blown out.Seattle’s 24-14 win in Philadelphia on Sunday was typical of its season. The Seahawks faced an excellent opponent — they’ve had one of the league’s tougher schedules — and they won clearly and cleanly, although not overwhelmingly. It was their sixth win in seven games. During that time, the Seahawks have gone from modest underdogs to make the playoffs to 94 percent favorites to do so.Seattle has also nearly regained the top spot in FiveThirtyEight’s NFL Elo Ratings. The New England Patriots, who scored their own impressive victory over the San Diego Chargers, remain in No. 1, but it comes down to decimal points. The Patriots’ Elo rating is 1717.1; the Seahawks’ is 1716.6. The Denver Broncos remain in third and the Green Bay Packers in fourth.But although the Seahawks’ playoff chances were once imperiled, the Elo ratings were never down on their quality. Seattle started the season at No. 1 and fell only as far as No. 3 in the league before moving back into a near-tie for first place. Seattle didn’t fall that far, in part, because Elo factors in a team’s preseason standing. (Preseason estimates are based on where the teams stood at the end of 2013.)Seattle isn’t the only team that testifies to the value of accounting for preseason expectations. Among Elo’s preseason top four, Denver has remained in the top four every week of the season, and the Patriots have remained in the top four during all but two weeks.Meanwhile, teams that looked average to start the year before making a charge up the standings, such as the Dallas Cowboys and Kansas City Chiefs, have since fallen back into the middle of the pack. The only real exception has been the Packers, and Elo has a good excuse for them, because the system doesn’t account for the injury to Aaron Rodgers that harmed their 2013 performance and depressed their preseason rating.The Seahawks still have some regular-season work left: They’d much rather enter the playoffs as division winner, which would allow them to play as many games as possible at CenturyLink Field and probably get a first-round bye. Our simulation has Seattle with a 23 percent chance of repeating as Super Bowl champions if they win the NFC West, but just a 10 percent shot if they enter the playoffs as a wild card team.But Seattle’s situation is a little more favorable than it might appear from the NFC West standings. Although they’re a game behind the Arizona Cardinals, the Seahawks have beaten them once this season and will play them again Dec. 21. If Seattle wins that game, it’ll make up the game against Arizona and also clinch the head-to-head tiebreaker. Seattle rates as a slight favorite in that game even though it’s being played in Arizona, so it’s a slight favorite to win the division, too, per Elo.Here are the playoff odds for the Seahawks and the other 31 NFL teams:No team has clinched a playoff berth so far, although some are all but certain to make it. The Packers reached the playoffs in 98.7 percent of our simulations this week. And both the Broncos and the Patriots made it 99.9 percent of the time.Some other team will make the playoffs in far less glorious fashion. The 5-8 Atlanta Falcons, 5-8 New Orleans Saints and 4-8-1 Carolina Panthers are still competing for the division title in the NFC South; the “champion” will not only make the playoffs, but host a home game. The best the NFC South champion can do is an 8-8 record; there’s a 31 percent chance of that, according to our simulations. There’s a 59 percent chance the division winner finishes with just seven wins, and a 10 percent chance they’ll have only six wins (either a 6-10 record or 6-9-1 in the case of Carolina). For the rundown on everyone else — including this week’s extremely high-leverage games in the NFC East and AFC South — check out Mike Beuoy and Reuben Fischer-Baum’s playoff implications column.Elo point spreadsRecord against point spread: 105-86-3 on season (10-5 in Week 14)Straight-up record: 144-63-1 on season (12-4 in Week 14)Elo has been on a hot streak in Las Vegas; the point spreads the system spits out have been on the right side of the closing Vegas line about 55 percent of the time this year.This is almost certainly just blind luck. The system isn’t as sophisticated as what bookmakers use, and Elo only beat the point spread 51 percent of the time in our backtesting of it — not enough to make a profit after the casino’s take.But this has been a fairly predictable NFL season; for the most part, the teams that looked best when it began look the best now.CORRECTION (Dec. 11, 10:29 a.m.): A previous version of this article incorrectly said New England has remained in Elo’s top four every week of the season. It has remained in the top four during all but two weeks. read more

Ohio State baseball stays hot defeats Akron Zips 94

Sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson (4) is welcomed in to home plate by junior infielder Troy Kuhn (5) and redshirt-junior infielder Nick Sergakis (21) before scoring an OSU run. The Buckeyes beat in-state opponent, Akron, 9-4, on March 25 at Bill Davis Stadium.Credit: Ethan Scheck / Lantern photographerFor Ohio State baseball coach Greg Beals, the 2015 season has been five years in the making. After being named the head coach in 2010, Beals said he dedicated the first five years of his career toward forming a balanced program.“It’s been five years of developing, it’s the idea of recruiting, the idea of talent and having a balanced baseball club,” Beals said.For the Buckeyes, the five-year plan has been a long process, but it all starts with recruiting, Beals added.“When you are developing your program you have 35 guys, and only 11.5 scholarships so you can’t just throw out a bunch of scholarships and build it in a year,” he said. “It takes some time to find that depth and find the right type of guys.”The Buckeyes showed the depth and balance of their team Wednesday night, beating the Akron Zips, 9-4, at Bill Davis Stadium.Akron started the game off strong by scoring the first two runs in the second inning before the Buckeyes tied the game at 2-2 going into the third.After two innings of three up, three down baseball, the Buckeyes took control of the game, scoring six runs in the fifth inning.“In the fifth inning, it’s a situation where we figured out their starter,” Beals said. “It was our third at-bat, the lineup had flipped and it was our third line through. That’s when we figured him out and were able to get some extra base hits.”After struggling with their bats in the first few innings, the Buckeyes showed their tenacity to get the win as sophomore outfielder Ronnie Dawson slammed a two-run homer. After struggling throughout the beginning of the season, Dawson said he feels that he’s gaining some of his confidence back.“I was struggling a little bit, but the coaches have faith in me and talk to me every day,” Dawson said.Dawson said the issue had come from his mentality, feeling like he wasn’t able to relax and be patient at the plate.“I just put a lot of pressure on myself. When I didn’t do so well, I got mad, but as I play more people are going to figure out who I am and how to pitch to me so I just have to patient,” Dawson said. “I’m just starting to relax again.”Along with Dawson, senior outfielder Pat Porter blasted a home run, maintaining his offensive leadership with one double and three RBIs.But the real standout for the night was junior Zach Ratcliff, who went 2-for-3 at the plate with one RBI, a run scored and a stolen base. The first baseman began the season starting for the Buckeyes, but struggled at the plate with a .185 batting average heading into Wednesday’s matchup.Wednesday was the day to test what Ratcliff could do when given an opportunity, Beals said.“I thought today was a good matchup for Zach to get in there and get his shot back and he took advantage of it,” Beals said. “I’m happy for him. He got the call tonight and answered the bell.”Ratcliff was humble to acknowledge his multiple double performance and grateful for the opportunity presented. But the junior said his mentality is to “just keep working.”Akron was consistent in the batters box, having seven of nine batters with at least one hit on OSU’s junior left-hander, John Havird. The Buckeyes’ starter tossed 84 pitches in 5.2 innings, with nine hits, only allowing one walk, four strikeouts and three earned runs, tallying his third win of the season.“The depth in our pitching staff is something we take pride in. We have multiple guys, we went two midweek games without any of our starting pitchers,” Beals said.The Buckeyes will look to maintain their consistency against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights in Piscataway, N.J., on Friday at 3:05 p.m., Saturday at 1:05 p.m. and Sunday at 1:05 p.m. read more
