first_imgThe first phase of Wild Pointe Ranch, a housing development in Elizabeth, Colorado, about 30 miles south of Denver, has sold out. The first five model homes completed for the next phase – which is expected to total 110 homes – will be available for viewing next fall, but with a green angle to their marketing pitch: like the rest of the homes that will be built at Wild Pointe Ranch, the models will be constructed to qualify for LEED for Homes Platinum certification, making WPR one of the largest LEED Platinum communities in the U.S.Accordingly, the developer, C&A Companies, and partner Energy Environmental Corporation, a Denver-based HVAC specialist, are soliciting funding, sustainable-construction products, and marketing services from additional, prospective partners. The development team, which already has five builders onboard, last week released a request for information (click here for PDF) from businesses interested in supplying any of the following products and services:• Promotion of energy efficiency and environmental stewardship• Sustainable design, materials, construction methods, and integrated building components• Products for improved air quality and low-VOC construction materials,• Renewable-energy components for smart-grid and grid-connected applications• Recycled/reused materials (ideally within 500 miles of Elizabeth, Colorado)• Foundation and advanced framing systems• Interior and exterior finishes• Insulation, weatherization, sheathing, roofing, windows and doors• Plumbing system components, and fixtures for reducing water consumption• CFL and LED lighting, integrated controls, and reduction of miscellaneous electrical loads• Energy Star criteria and high-efficiency appliances• Landscaping plants, components and controls for low energy and water usage• Whole-house automation and controls (BACnet- and/or ZigBee-compliant devices)• Advanced-technology HVAC systems (heat pumps, solar cooling, ERV/HRVs)• Renewable-systems financing and green investment partnersResponses to the request for information are due by December 11.Marketing a big green communityThe developers say they will spend more than $500,000 promoting the project at a special fall event they’re calling ENERGY freedom Festival of Homes, which will use the five model homes to highlight the affordability, design, building envelopes, sustainable materials, and energy systems of WPR housing.The new houses at WPR will be serviced by ground-source heat pumps as well as solar and wind power systems, which collectively are expected to provide enough energy to power the HVAC and domestic hot water system of each home, making them 50% to 70% more efficient than conventionally constructed homes of comparable size.The developers add that the project will create about 150 jobs for workers directly involved in WPR construction and about 185 more jobs in businesses that will help supply products and services during the build-out.Energy Environmental Corporation is hardly new to LEED for Homes standards. The company supervised construction of a LEED Platinum home that, before completion, was featured on the 2008 Energy Star Summit Tour for homes built in Colorado. The same home, which was built and is owned by EEC president Al Wallace, also will be the demonstration house for the 2009 Energy Star Summit in Denver on December 9.last_img read more

first_img Consultant Cardiologist at the Heart Foundation of Jamaica, Dr. Handel Emery, has highlighted the need for more resources to address cardiovascular complications, which account for the majority of diabetes-related deaths.Dr. Emery was speaking at a JIS ‘Think Tank’, on January 23, against the background of the observation of Heart Month, under the theme ‘The Diabetic Heart: Are you at Risk?’.“I think it is of paramount importance that we recognise this connection, and direct a lot of our attention to identifying, preventing and treating the cardiovascular complications associated with diabetes,” he emphasised.Dr. Emery said it is important to note that diabetes is extremely common, pointing out that the current data suggest that about 12 per cent of the population over the age of 15 in Jamaica is diabetic.“When you look at the international data, it’s even more alarming,” he noted. The Consultant said that about 400 million persons worldwide are diabetic at present, and the number is expected to grow to about half a billion by 2030.“It is a significant global problem, and whilst there has been a lot of focus given to some of the other complications of diabetes, we tend not to really focus a great deal of effort, energy and resources on the cardiovascular complications associated with it,” Dr. Emery said.He noted that the relationship between diabetes and hypertension is not new, and although the initial accounts were largely anecdotal, “we began to have epidemiologic data which support this association in the form of a very large and important trial called the Framingham Heart Study, which began in 1948”.The Consultant explained that subjects were assessed over a 30-year period, which led to the establishment of associations between particular disease entities.“One of the associations made from the study was that persons who were diabetic were about 200-500 per cent more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than persons who were not diabetic,” he informed.Dr. Emery noted that diabetic persons have a more rapid rate at which fat and cholesterol are deposited in the arterial system, leading to a narrowing of the blood vessels, which limits the flow of blood. This results in the heart muscle being starved of blood, which can lead to angina.He also explained that one may have complete blockage of the vessel, which is a heart attack.“Another way in which diabetes leads to heart failure is that the elevated blood sugars which we see in diabetes can also be directly toxic to heart cells. The heart tissue is not meant to function in an environment where blood sugars are elevated, so if they are chronically exposed to those levels of blood sugar, then there are biochemical consequences such as weakness of the heart muscle, and many patients go on to develop heart failure,” he said. “I think it is of paramount importance that we recognise this connection, and direct a lot of our attention to identifying, preventing and treating the cardiovascular complications associated with diabetes,” he emphasised.

first_img(Liberal MP Robert-Falcon Ouellette. APTN/File photo)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsIndigenous Liberal MP Robert-Falcon Ouellette says he plans to vote against his party’s proposed bill to legalize medically assisted dying.Ouellette, who represents a Winnipeg riding, said the decision to vote against the bill is rooted in deeply held spiritual beliefs.“I think symbolically, for the community where I am from, that I will need to demonstrate that I believe in a certain path and that this is the path I am choosing,” said Ouellette, in an interview Wednesday.Ouellette said he doesn’t believe he will face any repercussions from voting against the bill. Liberal MPs are being allowed to vote their conscience on the issue.“I think it’s a very personal thing,” said Ouellette.The Liberal government introduced a bill last week to make medically assisted death legal for consenting adults over 18 years of age. The bill would make assisted death legal for people who are in “an advanced stage of irreversible decline” and suffering from ailments where natural death is “reasonably foreseeable.”The government introduced the bill facing a June 6 deadline set by the Supreme Court which struck down the ban on physician assisted dying last year. The high court said consenting adults suffering from “grievous and irremediable” ailments should be able to seek medically assisted death.Ouellette said the federal government should work around the deadline and delay legalizing assisted death for at least five to 10 years until it’s absolutely clear what sort of impact it would have in all corners of Canadian society.“I think we need to take more time, especially in light of Attawapiskat,” said Ouellette.Attawapiskat, a Cree community in Ontario’s James Bay region, recently declared a state of emergency after suffering through 11 suicide attempts in a 24-hour span.“I think there are communities that have this issue and if you allow, all of a sudden, this to occur…it might be very difficult,” he said. “If grandma, grandfather decides they had enough in life…if they weren’t able to carry on, why should I carry on? If they weren’t strong enough, why should I be strong enough? I think that is a question that is asked in Attawapiskat more often than not and the ripple effect of assisted dying is not the same in Toronto as in other places.”Ouellette said his views are known within the Liberal caucus and to Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, an Indigenous politician who was a regional chief for the Assembly of First Nations. Wilson-Raybould played a key role in developing the assisted dying bill.“People know my viewpoint on it,” he said.Ouellette said part of his current position on the issue was influenced by a conversation he had with his Sundance chief about three years ago.“We were talking about suicide and he was talking in the lodge about this and he said, ‘Never forget the spirit of suicide, you have to fight the spirit of suicide, make sure it doesn’t come into our lives,’” said Ouellette. “I am afraid if we open this little door right now we won’t be able to fight that suicide spirit.”Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett told reporters this week she didn’t believe the proposed bill, if it becomes law, would impact communities dealing with suicide like Attawapiskat. She said there is some concern medically assisted dying is sometimes referred to as assisted suicide.“The more we can keep that separate, the better,” said Bennett.The House of Commons debate on the bill is scheduled to begin Friday.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarrera–with files from Canadian Presslast_img read more
