Log in My comprehensive article on residential ventilation systems, “Designing a Good Ventilation System,” was published back in 2009. A few things have changed in the last eight years, so it’s time to revisit the topic. Code requirements Most building scientists aren’t willing to provide a simple answer to the question, “At what point is a home so tight that the home requires a mechanical ventilation system?” A typical answer is, “It depends — but unless your house is very leaky, it’s better to err on the side of caution and install a mechanical ventilation system.”Building codes aren’t so vague, however. According to the 2012 and 2015 versions of the International Residential Code (IRC), any new home with a blower-door test result of less than 5.0 ach50 is required to have a whole-house ventilation system. This code requirement can be found in Chapter 3, section R303.4, and in Chapter 15, section M1507.1 of the IRC.Since the new IRC code requires homes in all zones except Zones 1 and 2 to achieve an airtightness result of no more than 3 ach50, the code effectively mandates a whole-house mechanical ventilation system for homes in Zones 3 through 8. If you live in Zones 1 or 2, and if your blower door test came in at less than 5.0 ach50, your home is also required to have a whole house ventilation system.The bottom line: If you’re getting your advice from GBA, you’ll be building a tight house — so your house needs a mechanical ventilation system.The building code is vague concerning the details of a mechanical ventilation system; it doesn’t really tell builders what type of equipment is needed to comply with the code. The code is specific, however, about ventilation rates. Here are the minimum airflow… read more
Days after the Central Bureau of Investigation filed a closure report giving a clean chit to the accused in the 2015 Bargari sacrilege case, the Punjab government on Wednesday said the report should be immediately withdrawn to ensure further detailed investigations in the matter. Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said the CBI had not only overlooked certain crucial aspects of the investigation but had also failed in its duty to identify the culprits and bring them to book, as was expected of the premier agency.Demanding reopening of the case for further investigations by the country’s top investigative agency, Capt. Amarinder said: “For reasons best known to them”, the CBI had unexpectedly closed the case in an unusually hurried manner, which raised several questions on its handling of the matter.“Many aspects of the case, including financial transactions and linkages with foreign-based entities, had been conveniently ignored in the CBI probe,” said the Chief Minister in a statement here, seeking a review of the closure decision.“The CBI had also not identified and examined certain key witnesses, suspects whose examination could have shed light on the cases,” he added.Three cases The previous Punjab government had, in November 2015, handed over to the CBI investigation of three sacrilege cases — theft of a ‘bir’ of Guru Granth Sahib from Burj Jawahar Singh Wala Gurdwara on June 1, 2015; putting up of hand-written sacrilegious posters in Bargari and Burj Jawahar Singh Wala on September 25; and torn pages of the holy book being found at Bargari on October 12, 2015.The CBI, it may be recalled, had filed its closure report on July 4, giving a clean chit to the accused in the 2015 Bargari sacrilege case. The agency had rejected the findings of the Punjab Police SIT in the case.The Chief Minister pointed out that the CBI was controlled by the Central government, led by the BJP which was an ally of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal at the time of the sacrilege incident. ‘Highly questionable’“The needle of suspicion in the Bargari case had been pointed at SAD by the Justice Ranjit Singh (retd) Commission,” he observed, adding that, given this context, the CBI decision to file closure report was highly questionable. read more
FILE- In this file photo dated Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, Manchester United’s Paul Pogba reacts during the English Premier League soccer match against Watford at Vicarage Road stadium in Watford, England. Pogba seems to be experiencing the toughest period of his second spell at Manchester United, Friday Feb. 16, 2018, after he was substituted in two of the last three games and dropped from the other. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham, FILE)MANCHESTER, England — Buried in his bulky, hooded Manchester United jacket, Paul Pogba slumped in a seat in the dugout and stared into space with a blank look on his face.His team was 1-0 down to relegation-threatened Newcastle in the English Premier League and heading for a second loss in three games. United needed a savior from somewhere but that wasn’t going to be Pogba, its record signing and most recognizable player.ADVERTISEMENT Globe Business launches leading cloud-enabled and hardware-agnostic conferencing platform in PH “In the last couple of matches, he didn’t play well,” Mourinho said on Friday. “Period. End of story.”Except it won’t be. Not with Pogba in this kind of form.Mourinho was in spiky mood at his news conference ahead of United’s FA Cup fifth-round match against Huddersfield on Saturday, angry at having to respond to speculation — or “lies,” as he preferred to call it — that his relationship with Pogba had soured and that the pair do not communicate.Other reports said Pogba was irritated at having to play in a deeper position in midfield.All false, according to Mourinho.ADVERTISEMENT That’s because Pogba had been substituted after 66 minutes. The previous match, he was dropped from the starting lineup. The match before that, against Tottenham at Wembley Stadium, he’d lasted only 62 minutes before being taken off soon after receiving stern words on the touchline by manager Jose Mourinho.The France midfielder is experiencing the toughest period of his second coming at United, with question marks over his role in the team and his on-field discipline.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutMoving for a then-world-record fee of 105 million euros (then $116 million) from Juventus in August 2016 has guaranteed that Pogba will never escape scrutiny during his time at Old Trafford.And the spotlight is on him more than ever at present.

John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding “Now, it’s my problem and Paul’s problem to deal with it and try to improve his performance level,” Mourinho said. “You don’t need to be a liar.”Pogba’s position in United’s lineup has been the subject of much debate in recent weeks, even more so since Alexis Sanchez joined the club last month in a swap deal with Henrikh Mkhitaryan to give Mourinho a very different type of attacking option.It is widely accepted that Pogba is at his best when he plays on the left of a midfield three, as he did to great effect during his time at Juventus. It gives him less defensively responsibility, compared to being in a midfield two, therefore allowing him to roam and make more of his trademark attacking surges.He started this season playing alongside Nemanja Matic in a central-midfield two, and produced impressive performances — particularly late in games when Marouane Fellaini came on as a substitute to give United extra protection in midfield.“Just let the horses run freely,” was Mourinho’s assessment after United scored three late goals on the break — one coming from Pogba — in a 4-0 win at Swansea in August in the Premier League.Pogba was out for two months from mid-September with a hamstring injury, then served a three-match ban after getting a red card against Arsenal on Dec. 2 on his fifth game back in the team.“He was out for a long, long time,” Mourinho said on Friday, “and in this moment, he is not playing well. Period. And the team needs him at a good level, and when he is not a good level the team is not as good as when he plays phenomenal.”Pogba’s most recent two starts have been the most concerning.Against Tottenham, where he again started in a central-midfield two, he was tactically indisciplined and lacked focus. He was regularly seen wandering around and vacating the central areas, leaving Matic swamped and exposed. It came as no surprise when he was substituted early, failing to finish a Premier League game he started for only the fourth time since rejoining United.Against Newcastle on Sunday, Pogba didn’t look fit — he was seen grimacing during the warmup — and was taken off by Mourinho soon after failing to react in the buildup to Newcastle’s winning goal, scored by Matt Ritchie. Mourinho said it was a tactical decision and Pogba wasn’t injured.
