Tony Fernandes took to Twitter after QPR’s home defeat against Wolves, insisting that the players could be proud of their efforts.Rangers were beaten 2-1 at Loftus Road, where James Perch was sent off during the first half.The result means Rangers have lost two of their three matches since Ian Holloway’s return as manager, but the co-chairman remains positive.Was always going to be hard with 10 men but we played with real heart and never gave in and could have nicked a point .

Discussions about moisture buildup and its effects are likely to be among the most enduring conversations in homebuilding and remodeling, particularly as more homeowners opt for better-insulated and more-airtight exterior walls.In his Musings of an Energy Nerd column, GBA Advisor Martin Holladay recently sorted through key considerations for designing exterior walls that manage water condensation and perform well when exposed to cold weather. The variables in Martin’s analysis include the indoor relative humidity and the temperature of a wall component, such as the sheathing. If the sheathing gets cold enough and the indoor relative humidity is high enough, condensation can collect on the sheathing.The condensation issue came to mind again this month when we spotted an Alaska Daily News story (sign-in required) about mold problems in houses in Fairbanks, where home energy conservation has been gaining importance since the 1970s, when fuel costs began to rise. The stimulus-funded expansion of the Weatherization Assistance Program and recent home-energy rebates have further advanced weatherization activity in the area.The ventilation issueBut as more homeowners add insulation to attics and exterior walls, and air-seal the shell as best they can, complaints about mold have grown commensurately. A building inspector and retired energy auditor interviewed for the story noted that the design of the exterior-wall systems in the afflicted homes plays the most prominent role in mold growth, related health issues, and structural damage precipitated by long-term condensation problems.Because these are existing buildings whose exterior walls are unlikely to be redesigned and rebuilt, however, homeowners are advised to examine a factor they can address more inexpensively: ventilation.“People are still too often addressing one side of the energy equation … making walls thicker, increasing R-values and tightening homes. They are not addressing ventilation,” Steve Shuttleworth, a building official for the city of Fairbanks, told the paper.As noted in another Musings of an Energy Nerd column, “Designing a Good Ventilation System,” builders nowadays typically choose from among three mechanical ventilation systems: an exhaust-only ventilation system based on one or more bath exhaust fans (this is the simplest system); a central-fan-integrated supply ventilation system (for better fresh air distribution); a heat-recovery ventilator or an energy-recovery ventilator connected to a dedicated duct system (the system that will operate at the lowest cost).The choice depends on factors such as the size, layout of the house, and the budget of the homeowner. Martin’s column provides a thorough description of the options.
The daylight murder of a 50-year-old woman in the district courts complex in Rajasthan’s Dausa town on Wednesday has brought the focus on security arrangements in the courts, for which the High Court had recently given directions to the State government. The woman was stabbed by her estranged husband just before a sessions court was to pass the judgment in a case related to their missing daughter.Stabbed to deathThe accused, Amar Chand, was overpowered by the lawyers and court officials and handed over to the police. While the accused was arrested on charges of murder, the victim, Sheela Devi, was rushed to the district hospital where she was declared dead.Shocked by the incident, laywers in the town, situated 57 km away from here, boycotted the court work and demanded strict measures for security of advocates, judges and the court staff as well the people visiting the courts. Lawyers said the situation in which anyone could come with weapons to the court warranted immediate action.A Division Bench of the High Court had in July this year directed the State government to take suitable steps for safety in the court complexes. The High Court’s directions came after a series of “surprise inspections” of lower courts in several districts by the Chief Justice.
