first_imgOver the last few days rumours have emerged that Liverpool have wrapped up the signing of James Milner for free.The player’s Man City contract expires in the summer and he has been linked with a move away from the Etihad where he has won the FA Cup, League Cup and two Premier League titles.Milner was reportedly considering a move abroad as he looks for regular first team starts in his favoured central midfield role, with Milan, Roma and Inter, managed by his former boss Roberto Mancini, interested.However, the Reds appear to have got to the 29-year-old first, a move that has pleased some Liverpool fans on Twitter and upset one Man United supporter, who feels Milner would be an ideal signing for Louis van Gaal’s side. 1 It is rumoured Liverpool have snapped up Man City midfielder James Milner for free last_img read more

first_img1 Chris Coleman has experienced few lower moments in his career than the last-gasp gut punch delivered by England but the Wales manager will not allow the “devastating” blow to throw their Euro 2016 campaign off kilter.Gareth Bale’s fine 35-yard free-kick at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis put the Dragons halfway towards the win they knew would secure progress to the knockout stages.However, England’s half-time changes swung the thrilling Group B encounter, with Jamie Vardy levelling from close range before Daniel Sturridge struck in stoppage time to seal a memorable 2-1 win in Lens.Roy Hodgson’s men enjoyed the lion’s share of the play but the timing of the winner after such a solid, hard-working Welsh display left manager Coleman crestfallen.Asked if it was one of the lowest moments of his career as a player or manager, the Wales boss said: “Yes, yes. I’d have to say yeah, to be honest, when you come that close.“You know you’re going to be up against it from the start, it was a tough game.“But we did everything we could to keep them at bay and even when they got the equaliser, they had possession but I think Wayne pulled off one save.“They pressed and probed but we weren’t stretched too badly.“For the dying seconds to lose it there, I can’t say I’ve felt that disappointed too many times in my career as I did when that goal went in.”Coleman knows Wales can ill-afford to allow the disappointment to fester.Beating Slovakia 2-1 in their first ever European Championship finals match puts them second in Group B, setting up a crunch clash with Russia in Toulouse.“Of course we’ve watched Russia,” Coleman said of Monday’s opponents, whose manager Leonid Slutsky was at Thursday’s match.“I think it’s an exciting group this one because it’s all on that last game for all of us, Slovakia and England, Wales and Russia.“Russia could have got something out of the game against Slovakia. They started a bit late, the last 20 minutes they put pressure on Slovakia.“We know what Slovakia are all about, they’re a good team, so it won’t be easy for England either.“It’s all on this last game. Russia have experience. They’ll be hurting after the defeat against Slovakia, but it’s all on this last game.“It’s whichever team are able to put the disappointment behind them from this middle game will be the ones to prevail.”Coleman expects Joe Ledley to be available for Monday’s match, having limped off 67 minutes into his first start since fracturing a leg just five weeks ago.“Joe had a bang,” the Wales boss said. “We think he’s going to be all right. He just had a bit of a bang on it.“It wasn’t the first time in the game he’d had a bit of a whack but we think he’s going to be okay.” Chris Coleman watches on as England score a late winner last_img read more

first_img27 February 2013South African Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, delivering his 2013 Budget Speech in Parliament in Cape Town on Wednesday, proposed an employment tax incentive for young, first-time workers which will use a new graduated formula and replace the contested youth wage subsidy proposal made in last year’s Budget.Delivering his 2013 Budget Speech in Parliament in Cape Town on Wednesday, Gordhan also revealed plans for several tax incentives for the country’s Special Economic Zones (SEZs).The Budget Review says youth employment incentive, which will amount to R500-million in tax relief once implemented, will operate using a graduated tax incentive at the entry-level wage, falling to zero when earnings reach the personal income tax threshold.Protection provided by existing labour legislation, combined with oversight by the South African Revenue Service (Sars) and the Department of Labour, will ensure that employers don’t replace older workers in favour of first-time workers just to take advantage of the tax incentive.Incentives for Special Economic ZonesA similar tax incentive will be made available to eligible workers of all ages within the country’s Special Economic Zones (SEZs). This will allow employers to make a tax deduction for employing workers earning less than R60 000 a year.The Budget Review also contains a proposal that businesses based in SEZs be subject to a 15% corporate tax rate, almost half that of South Africa’s current corporate tax rate of 28%.Added to this, an accelerated depreciation for buildings in these areas, based on the existing tax regime for urban development zones, will encourage SEZ developers to invest more in industrial premises.The DTI released its draft Special Economic Zones Policy and Bill during 2012 and invited the country’s nine provinces to submit proposals for the establishment of Special Economic Zones.Last week, Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale announced that the DTI was set to partner with the Limpopo government to establish two SEZs in the province, one focusing on logistics and coal beneficiation, the other on platinum beneficiation.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

first_imgBuilding science is an odd subject. Few colleges and universities teach it. The majority of those who work on buildings call themselves engineers, architects, and contractors, not building scientists. And many of those who do invoke the term can explain at least one implication of the second law of thermodynamics (we’ll get to that below) but may not know what the other laws of thermodynamics are, why their numbering is so peculiar, or even how many there are. Do you?Well, today let’s address this deficiency. If you’re going to speak of one of the laws of thermodynamics, it’s your duty at least to know the others well enough to tell a curious person what they are and which ones have some bearing in the world of building science. Before we launch into this subject, though, let’s get a little perspective on thermodynamics from the physicist Arnold Sommerfeld:Thermodynamics is a funny subject. The first time you go through it, you don’t understand it at all. The second time you go through it, you think you understand it, except for one or two points. The third time you go through it, you know you don’t understand it, but by that time you are so used to the subject, it doesn’t bother you anymore. RELATED ARTICLESWhy Doesn’t Heat Flow Backwards?Heat Pumps: The Basics Video Series: Building Science Principles With that, let’s begin at the beginning, sort of. The first of the laws of thermodynamics is not the first law of thermodynamics. (I told you it was peculiar!) It is…The zeroth law of thermodynamicsLet’s start with the obvious question: Why isn’t it called the first law of thermodynamics? As it happened, this law was discovered after the first and second laws but considered to be more fundamental. So we have a zeroth law.Now, the statement of the zeroth law:If two systems each are in thermal equilibrium with a third, they are in thermal equilibrium with each other.And that, of course, raises the question of the definition of thermal equilibrium. Let’s start with a glass of lukewarm water. If you drop an ice cube into it, is the ice in thermal equilibrium with the water? No. It absorbs heat from the water.But if we think about that ice cube sitting in the freezer before we pulled it out. The ice is surrounded by cold air in the freezer. Once the ice has been in the freezer long enough to freeze completely and then reach the same temperature as the air in the freezer, no heat transfer happens between the ice cube and the freezer air. Now we have a case of thermal equilibrium.Thus, two systems that are in thermal equilibrium are at the same temperature, are in thermal contact with each other, and have no net heat flow from one to the other. One consequence of the zeroth law is that temperature measurements are kind of a big deal.The first law of thermodynamicsDepending on how you’ve come to the field of building science, you may have encountered this law. If you studied physics or engineering, you’ve no doubt seen all four laws of thermodynamics. If you instead arrived by a different route, this one may be new to you.In thermodynamics, the first law is stated as a relation among heat, work, and internal energy. Let’s forgo that formality and technical detail here and cut to the fundamental principle that’s important to building science: Energy can be neither created nor destroyed.Yep. The first law of thermodynamics is a formulation of the law of conservation of energy. It has many applications in building science.Let’s begin with how we heat buildings. If it’s with a gas furnace, the fuel has a certain amount of chemical energy. When the gas gets to the burner and ignites, it changes form. The chemical reaction creates heat, which raises the temperature of the exhaust gases. Those exhaust gases travel through the heat exchanger, increasing the temperature of that hunk of metal. The blower then blows air over the heat exchanger, extracting heat from the metal and then sending it through the ducts.Every bit of chemical energy converted to heat ends up somewhere. Ideally, you want as much of that heat as possible to end up in your house, but not all of it does. Some goes up the flue with the exhaust gases. Better heat exchangers capture more of the heat for use in the house, but all furnaces send at least some heat up the flue. Another way you lose heat is when your ducts go through unconditioned space. The bottom line, though, is that if you burn 100 units of chemical energy, you get 100 units of heat.Here’s another way the first law works in buildings. Consider a ceiling fan. In summer, you turn it on to create a nice breeze blowing over your skin to cool you off. What happens with the energy is that you’re actually heating up the room. In this case, the incoming energy is electrical. The fan motor converts it to mechanical energy, the moving fan blades. But it doesn’t do convert electricity to motion at 100% efficiency. The wires in the fan motor have resistance, which creates some heat. Thus, some of the electricity is turned into heat right away. The rest of the electrical energy becomes mechanical energy, but even that eventually becomes heat. So all of the electricity you use to run the ceiling fan actually heats up the room, which is why it does no good to leave them on when no one is there to feel the breeze.In his book, Buildings Don’t Lie, Henry Gifford advises readers on how to use the first law of thermodynamics to understand energy saving features and to sniff out scams. For a product to save energy, he says, you have to know where the energy is going before using that product. Insulation, for example, reduces the amount of heat lost from a building in winter, with a corresponding reduction in the amount of heat you have to add to the building to maintain comfort. If you can’t identify clearly the path of energy conversions, Gifford says, “the proposed energy-saving measure should be viewed with skepticism.”Take Amish fireplaces, for example. Although they’re marketed as great energy savers, there’s nothing about them that saves energy over any other electric resistance heater. They all convert electricity to heat at 100% efficiency (like a ceiling fan). The only way to save energy with a space heater is if you turn off the heat in the rest of the house.The second law of thermodynamicsOnce scientists figured out the first law of thermodynamics, they began to see that it would allow all manner of bizarre things to happen. Let’s go back to our glass of lukewarm water. It would not violate the first law for the water in the bottom half of the glass to get cold, possibly even freezing into a block of ice. For that to happen, the water in the top part of the glass would have to get hot, maintaining the same amount of thermal energy in the glass.Ever seen that happen? No. It may not violate the first law, but we know from our own direct experience that things like that just don’t happen. That’s where the second law of thermodynamics comes in. This one is a bit more complex and has several, equivalent, formulations. We could geek out over heat engines, Carnot efficiency, entropy, and the arrow of time, but for the purposes of building science, the statement of the second law by Rudolf Clausius is the one of most significance: Heat can never pass from a colder to a warmer body without some other change, connected therewith, occurring at the same time.In winter, the heat from our fireplace naturally wants to move to the outdoors. Heat in the outdoor air doesn’t make its way into our house “without some other change.” We can get heat from the outdoor air to heat our home with a heat pump, but that piece of equipment has other stuff going on and doesn’t violate the second law. But even then, when you look at how it really works, heat still flows from the warmer to the cooler object. (For more details, see my article on how a heat pump gets heat from cold.)Heat moving from hot to cold is the implication of the second law of thermodynamics I alluded to in the first paragraph. It’s taught in many introductory building science classes, as well as extrapolations from the flow of heat to the flow of moisture (wet to dry) and air (high pressure to low pressure).Going just a wee bit beyond building science, the second law of thermodynamics implies that the ultimate fate of the universe is heat death. Given sufficient time, all the energy of the universe will end up spread out uniformly, with everything at the same temperature. That assumes the universe is an isolated system, of course. If our universe is simply a speck of matter in some larger universe, our fate may depend on what happens there, much as an ant’s fate might depend on which way that kid points the magnifying glass.The third law of thermodynamicsThis one’s pretty simple:The absolute zero of temperature is unattainable.This law is a direct consequence of the second law. One formulation says that heat engines can never be operated at 100% efficiency, with an equation defining the maximum efficiency as the Carnot efficiency:e = 1 – TC / THTC and TH are the temperatures of the cold and hot reservoirs, respectively. If the cold reservoir were at a temperature of absolute zero, the efficiency would be 100%. But the second law makes it pretty clear that can’t happen. Voilà! We need another law of thermodynamics!Building science and thermodynamicsBuilding science is concerned with heat flow through building enclosures and heat supplied to or removed from conditioned space. The laws of thermodynamics lay down the fundamental rules for understanding heat, and that means if you want to understand building science better, you need to know some thermodynamics. When you get far enough into it that you know you don’t understand it but are used to it, then you’ve made serious progress in your education!

first_imgThis uber-successful horror director dives into his latest project and what future directors should expect on set.All images via ponysmasher.Director the recent film Annabelle: Creation and YouTube extraordinaire David F. Sandberg takes us through directing a feature film — regardless of your budget — in this stellar video. The series is full of brilliant insight, excellent behind-the-scenes footage, and industry know-how for filmmakers of all skill levels.Of all the different people working on set, the director is no doubt one of the most important (if not the most important). So, when we ask, “What is it that the director actually does,” Sandberg discusses the one thing any director absolutely must know how to do: communicate.Communicate to other people. What it is you want. What your vision for the film is. What you want it to feel like. What you want it to look like. What you want it to sound like.It’s important to note that if you’re a first-time director or are dealing with cameras you’ve never shot with before, knowing how to work the cameras and which lenses work best isn’t necessarily your responsibility.A director doesn’t necessarily need or have to know all these technical things, but it helps, of course, the more you know about every aspect of filmmaking.Sandberg emphasizes how important it is to establish a good relationship with your director of photography. Working with a reliable DP, with mutual understanding and communication, builds trust. So, if you don’t necessarily know everything about cameras, lenses, or lights, it’s okay. Thats what the DP, gaffer, and DIT are there for — to help you capture your vision. That’s not to say experience and know-how won’t take you further, however, because they will.The director brings focus to the truly limitless possibilities of filmmaking. There are endless ways to shoot every action and scene. Because of this scope of opportunity, as a director, you’ll need to answer a million questions on set. Sandberg reflects on his first directorial debut, Lights Out, when he learned right from the start that he would need to field many, many questions — and quickly. Sandberg encourages directors not to let questions go unanswered and pile up. Even if you’re unsure of the answer and think it might be wrong, give them an answer. You can always correct yourself and fix the problem later.Staging the ActorsOne of the biggest takeaways from these behind-the-scenes videos is how much staging Sandberg does on set. Setting up the shot, positioning actors, determining marks: all these tasks take place while the camera operator and crew prep lighting, props, and extras.When you picture a director on set, you might imagine this weird guy yelling at the actors and giving them weird poetic directions, and doing like a hundred takes. I’m sure those directors exist, but for me casting is crucial. To find people who really know how to get into these characters so you don’t have to drag that out of them on set. Because on set you will have a lot of technical stuff to figure out, so your job will be so much easier if your actors just know their characters and are able to go into that.Be Open to EverythingOf the director’s many responsibilities, knowing and adhering to the script might be number one. However, directors should never feel beholden to the words on the page or how they hear the lines in their own heads.Sandberg stresses that directors should never oppose new directions or performances simply on principle. Just because the actor delivered a line differently than you were expecting doesn’t necessarily mean you need to keep shooting take after take. Let the actors give their characters lives of their own, and learn to trust the relationship you’ve built with them.Actors aren’t parrots . . . What an actor needs to know most of all, is why. Instead of telling an actor to look sad, you have to let them know why the person is sad.It’s all about what feels right for the actor. Making them as comfortable as possible will lead to well-rounded and believable performances.An Average DayOne of the first things to do on the first day of shooting is to walk through the scenes with your actors. No camera crew, no props, no crafty — just you and your actors. By doing so, you can figure out what will work and what won’t, and maybe even determine some new directions the scene could take.A big question many aspiring directors have is how many takes they should shoot and how long scenes should take to film. Sandberg advises you go with your gut, and don’t push your actors into frustration.Then you’re ready to do your first take, and then if that doesn’t feel right, you’ll do another take. I think, as a director, it’s important to know when to let go. Because its pretty easy to just keep chasing that perfect take that you’re never going to get. For me, I feel that usually the best take is like the third or fourth take.Because of this minimal approach to takes, Sandberg can cut down time between scenes, takes, and shots. Setting up lights and props (and the camera) takes forever, and you never have enough time while filming a movie, so the more time you can steal, the better.Another way he reduces time for breaking down equipment for new camera setups is by avoiding shooting coverage. Shooting coverage is a certain way to bore your actors and limit the number of shots you complete in a given day.My ideal way of shooting a scene is you have a long take, that can sort of can start as a master and go into a two-shot. Getting the coverage you need in one long take, and then turning around and shooting from the other direction, so you have something to cut to.Shooting a OnerOne of the oldest techniques in the book, shooting a long take, has been a filmmaking staple since the art form’s inception. Sandberg speaks out about his love for shooting a oner and how often he includes the camera trick in his arsenal. However, oners can limit you in the edit. This might seem obvious, but many filmmakers don’t think about the editing process while on set, and they often can’t go back and reshoot the scene. So if you decide to shoot a scene in one take, make sure you at least get a few shots to cut to, just in case.Sandberg’s YouTube channel is an excellent resource for all things filmmaking, offering professional insight into the many directions your career can take.

first_imgRaising the issue of income tax notices to several Durga Puja committees in the State, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday accused the Centre and the Bharatiya Janata Party of insulting the festival. Speaking to journalists at the State Secretariat, Ms. Banerjee said those who talk about Hinduism before the elections are insulting a religious festival like Durga Puja by asking the organisers to pay income tax. The Income Tax Department had issued notices to about 40 big budget pujas during the last festival, seeking details of their income and expenditure.“Those who believe in the Hindu religion, observe Durga Puja. Many political parties do not have to pay income tax for the funds they spend during the elections. Then why would the puja committees have to pay tax? I condemn this attitude,” she said.Ms Banerjee’s remarks, just before the onset of the festival season, assumes significance as the BJP is likely to associate with several community Durga Pujas this year. Durga Pujas in West Bengal also serve as a prominent means of reaching out to large number of people. ‘Subscription by people’The Chief Minister said that community Durga Pujas are held on subscription paid by people, who pay taxes and therefore the question of taxing puja funds does not arise. “It is an insult to the pujas,” she said. Last year, West Bengal government paid an honorarium of ₹10,000 to the community Durga Puja organisers, a decision that was challenged in thee Calcutta High Court.last_img read more

first_imgThe successor to the Mi Mix 2, aka Mi Mix 3 is coming soon. To recollect, Xiaomi had launched the Mi Mix 2 in September last year. It is in the same month this year that the company may launch the successor device. This means we can witness Xiaomi launch the Mi Mix 3 in September this year. The Chinese OEM, however, is yet to reveal the launch timeline details of the phone. Months before the launch, rumours and leaks about the Mi Mix 3 have started making rounds on the internet. A new leak suggests, unlike the Mi Mix 2, the Mi Mix 3 will feature a Vivo Nex like pop-up selfie camera on the front.Overall, the design of the Mi Mix 3 will be a lot different from that of the Mi Mix 2, suggests newly leaked renders. To recollect, the Mi Mix 2 has the selfie camera placed in the bottom bezel. The scenario will not be the same for the Mi Mix 3. The alleged renders of the Mi Mix 3 show a Vivo Nex like pop up selfie camera (see picture above).If you remember, back in 2015, Xiaomi had filed for a patent for the front-facing camera which revealed that the company may introduce a pop-up selfie camera technology in the near future. Looks like, the patent is going to be a reality soon, with the Mi Mix 3. How will the pop-up camera work? On selecting the selfie camera option on the phone camera app, the front pop-up camera will rise (or pop-up) and retract from the top edge of the phone and click the selfie. The renders of the Mi Mix 3 show that the pop-up selfie camera will come with a LED-flash, to capture clear selfies in low-light.advertisementIn addition, the leaked renders also show the Mi Mix 3 with no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Meaning, the fingerprint sensor on the Mi Mix 3 will be placed under the display just like the Mi 8 launched only recently. The renders show the Mi Mix 3 with ultra-slim bezels on all sides.The leaked renders not only show the front design of the Mi Mix 3, but also the design of the rear panel. Going by the renders, the Mi Mix 3 will come with dual cameras on the rear panel, where the two cameras will be separated with a LED flashlight. The positioning of the dual rear cameras looks a lot like the iPhone X. The renders show the Mi Mix 3 in white colour. Xiaomi, however, may introduce more colour options for the phone.For now, not a lot is known about the Mi Mix 3. All we know for sure is that the device will come packed with some flagship specifications like Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 processor, Android 8.1 Oreo and more.last_img read more
