Researchers Predict U.S. Furnace Industry Is Doomed

This article is only available to GBA Prime Members OAK RIDGE, TENN., April 1 — According to Andrei Constantinescu, a senior researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, it won’t be long before new American homes no longer require central heating. “Every year, the heat produced by electronic gadgets is increasing,” explained Constantinescu. “By 2014, most new American homes won’t need a furnace.”As televisions get larger, their heat output increases. “Four plasma TVs can heat a house in Kentucky,” said Constantinescu. “If you throw in a set-top box and two or three computers, you should be fine as far north as Maine.”Data from the Energy Information Administration confirm that the average heat output of electronic gadgets has been rising for years. “It’s only a matter of time before furnace manufacturers have to close their doors,” Constantinescu predicted. Carrier Corporation has already announced plans to move its corporate headquarters from Farmington, Conn., to Fairbanks, Alaska, where the demand for residential furnaces may last until 2018.According to Julie Flack, media coordinator for the American Association of Electronic Gadget Manufacturers (AAEGM), heating a home with plasma TVs makes a lot of sense. “When you go to bed, it’s important to leave all of your TVs on,” Flack advised. “Especially on cold winter nights.”The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been closely monitoring the heating-with-your-television trend. “Beginning in 2016, television labels will be required to include heat output in BTUH,” said DOE spokesperson Christine Keely. “The new labels will be a boon to consumers. If your home has a design heat loss of 30,000 BTUH, and you’re shopping for three new TVs, just be sure that each TV has a minimum heat output of 10,000 BTUH.”Editor’s note: This news story has been published a day ahead of Holladay’s usual Friday blog posting in order to meet the April 1st press… center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

Barrick Gold swings to loss in third quarter on lower sales and

first_imgTORONTO – Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) says lower gold production and a hit on sales from its Tanzanian operations pushed the mining giant to a net loss in the third quarter.The Toronto-based miner says it had a net loss of US$11 million or a penny per share for the quarter, compared with net earnings of US$175 million or 15 cents per share a year earlier.Barrick says overall gold production came in at 1.24 million ounces, compared with 1.38 million for the third quarter last year.The company, which owns 64 per cent of Tanzania-focused Acacia Mining, is embroiled in a tax and refining dispute with the government there that it says affected its gold sales.Last week, Barrick said it had reached a resolution to the impasse that would include Acacia paying US$300 million to Tanzania and transferring to the government a 16 per cent interest in its three gold mines. The deal still needs to be approved by Acacia.Barrick says net earnings for the third quarter were impacted by a tax provision of US$172 million related to the proposed deal.last_img read more

Bernier unhappy with Attorney Generals report on proportional representation

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. — Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier says he’s not happy about some of the recommendations made by Attorney General David Eby in a report on the upcoming provincial referendum on proportional representation, which is due out this fall.Bernier said that the report shows that the NDP has “stacked the deck” in favour of B.C. residents to vote in favour of the province adopting proportional representation during the upcoming referendum. Bernier, who has come out against getting rid of the current First Past The Post system, claims that Premier John Horgan broke a promise after saying that the referendum would consist of a simple ‘yes or no’ question.“They broke their promise on how they were going to do this referendum. Now they’ve made it more rigged where its really convoluted and confusing for people. They have not provided any time for groups to really formulate and understand what it’s about. There’s no maps that are showing how the boundaries might change. It’s a completely manipulated process.” Bernier said he feels that the current timeline that has been adopted by the provincial government is too short. He said that the previous Liberal government allowed for over a year ahead of the last referendum on electoral reform, which was held in conjunction with the 2009 provincial election. During that referendum, just under 61 percent of voters rejected the proposal for the province to switch to the Single Transferable Vote method of voting. That referendum followed on the heels of another referendum during the 2005 election, when 57 percent of residents voted in favour of STV, which was below the required threshold. Bernier also says that during previous referendums, there have been regional thresholds that have meant that the referendum would not pass if the initiative did not receive enough favourable votes in rural areas of the the province. He added that the NDP have not set any minimum thresholds for different regions, meaning that rural areas of B.C. could be out-voted based simply on the number of eligible voters who live in the Lower Mainland.last_img read more

Clashes with Kadhafi remnants erupt in southern Libya

first_imgTRIPOLI – Fresh clashes erupted Tuesday in the southern Libyan city of Sebha pitting supporters of slain dictator Moamer Kadhafi against government forces and former rebels, a military source said.The latest fighting was sparked by the arrival of government reinforcements who aim to dislodge the Kadhafi supporters from several positions they occupy in and around the desert city, said Al-Ferjani Akila, of the Sebha Operations Centre.There was no immediate word on casualties. “Clashes are taking place between the army and former rebels from Misrata on one side and supporters of the old regime on the other,” he said.The coastal city of Misrata saw some of the bloodiest combat of the eight-month uprising that toppled Kadhafi, who was captured and killed by rebels in October 2011.At least 88 people have been killed and 130 wounded over the past two weeks in fighting between rival tribes in Sebha.The fighting initially pitted the Arab Awled Sleiman tribe against members of the Toubou, a non-Arab ethnic group that has long complained of being marginalised by Tripoli. The Awled Sleiman have also clashed with other Arab tribes.Kadhafi loyalists have taken advantage of the chaos to launch repeated attacks on the city’s Tamenhant air base, according to local officials.last_img read more

NFL week 5 guide to fantasy football

Play ‘Em Sam Bradford: Bradford has looked impressive as a rookie so far this season. Last week against Seattle, he threw for 289 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. This week, Bradford faces a Detroit defense that ranks 26th in passing defense and has allowed at least two touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks in three of its first four games. If you’re looking for a bye-week quarterback, consider Bradford. Eli Manning: Last week against Chicago, Manning threw for 195 yards and no touchdowns, but the Giants’ defense was the main focus. This week, Manning faces an awful Texans secondary. Look for Manning to rebound against a defense that allows 338 yards passing per game. Jamaal Charles: Charles has scored one touchdown in his 2010 campaign, but look for success this week against the Colts. Through four games, running backs have averaged 22 points in standard scoring leagues against the Colts’ defense. Charles will continue to split carries with Thomas Jones, but Charles’ seven yards per carry is worth noting. Mark Clayton: It’s hard to believe how well Clayton has fit so well in the Rams’ system after being traded from Baltimore. Clayton caught five passes for 72 yards last week against Seattle, but was targeted 14 times. He will continue to be consistent against a Lions defense that surrenders 27 points per game. Marques Colston: It’s time to wake up, Marques. Colston has been irrelevant in the Saints’ passing game this season, with 190 receiving yards in four games. Believe it or not, Colston hasn’t had more than 70 yards in a game. Expect Colston to find the end zone against a subpar Cardinals defense. In his last game against Arizona, Colston had eight catches for 114 yards with a touchdown. Bench ‘Em Carson Palmer: Last week, Palmer threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns against the Browns. However, the Bengals trailed early, which allowed Palmer to air it out. Palmer’s next challenge is to face a Tampa Bay passing defense that ranks 10th in the league. The Bengals will utilize the running game, since that has been Tampa Bay’s weakness. Darren McFadden: McFadden is battling a hamstring injury that could cost him a start this week. Whether McFadden is healthy or not, look for Michael Bush to get a majority of the carries. The Chargers hold their own against the run and McFadden’s last game against San Diego wasn’t impressive, as he had just 68 yards and lost a fumble. Terrell Owens: Owens shocked us all with his performance last week, 222 yards and a touchdown. For those of you trying to get on the T.O. bandwagon, get off. Owens will continue to be mediocre as the Bengals try to find an identity on offense. LaDainian Tomlinson: As expected, Tomlinson had a monster game against Buffalo, with 133 yards and two touchdowns. This week the Jets face a Vikings unit that allows 87 rushing yards per game and is coming off a bye. The Vikings will crowd the box and force Mark Sanchez to make plays downfield. The Vikings haven’t allowed a touchdown to an opposing running back in their last two games. read more

Commentary Scarlet Team has the advantage in Ohio States Spring Game

When the Scarlet and Gray teams face off in the Spring Game Saturday, the passing and blocking advantages give the Scarlet Team the edge for securing victory.The coaching staff was divided into Scarlet and Gray teams, which in turn drafted rosters to play against each other Saturday. Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman will lead Scarlet along with assistant coaches Everett Withers, Mike Vrabel, and Tim Hinton. Defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell will coach Gray, with Kerry Coombs, Ed Warinner, Stan Drayton and Zach Smith assisting him.Braxton Miller, the rising sophomore starting quarterback of the Buckeyes, was drafted to the Scarlet roster. The quarterbacks for the Gray roster will be rising redshirt junior Kenny Guiton and incoming freshman Cardale Jones.As a true freshman, Miller showed his ability to be a dynamic dual-threat quarterback. While Miller had his ups and downs last season, this will be his first opportunity to take the field and show his progression with Herman leading the offense.Guiton had a strong Spring Game performance last season, completing 11 of 21 pass attempts for 167 yards and two touchdowns. That said, he is not the true playmaker that Miller is, and having him gives Scarlet a big advantage in the game.Additionally, the Scarlet team has a much more experienced offensive line. Four of this year’s five expected starters – rising redshirt junior Jack Mewhort, rising redshirt junior Corey Linsley, rising senior Reid Fragel and rising redshirt junior Marcus Hall – are on the Scarlet roster. The Gray roster includes rising junior guard Andrew Norwell, a returning starter from last season, but rising sophomore Antonio Underwood is the only other offensive lineman on their roster with any playing experience.Gray has an edge at the offensive skill positions. The top five returning receivers from last season – rising sophomore wide receiver Devin Smith, rising redshirt senior tight end Jake Stoneburner, rising junior wide receiver Corey Brown, rising redshirt sophomore wide receiver Verlon Reed, and rising senior running back Jordan Hall – are all on the Gray roster. That said, their success as receivers will rely upon Guiton’s ability to pass the ball, and Miller is the much more talented passer. Rising junior running back Carlos Hyde and redshirt junior Chris Fields highlight the skill position talent on the Scarlet roster.Scarlet is also loaded with much of OSU’s top defensive talent.The roster is led by rising junior defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, a massive, athletic defensive tackle who emerged as a star last season with 10 tackles for loss. Their roster also features possibly the most talented linebacker on the roster, rising sophomore Ryan Shazier, who played tremendously when he earned time in the starting lineup late last season. The Scarlet roster also features three of last year’s four starters from the secondary: rising redshirt junior safety C.J. Barnett, junior safety Christian Bryant and rising senior cornerback Travis Howard.Rising senior defensive end John Simon, who was a third-team AP All-American last season, will lead the Gray defense up front. Rising redshirt junior Adam Bellamy and rising redshirt senior Garrett Goebel are returning starters on the Gray defensive line, and the wild card for them up front could be senior Nathan Williams, a talented pass-rusher who missed the entire 2011 season with injury.However, while Gray might have an edge in comparing defensive lines, Scarlet has the edge among linebackers and defensive backs. The Gray roster only has two returning starters among the defensive back seven: rising redshirt senior linebacker Etienne Sabino and rising redshirt sophomore Bradley Roby.Additionally, the Scarlet roster will have a clear edge in kicking field goals with rising junior Drew Basil. Rising senior punter Ben Buchanan will give Gray an edge in the field position battle, but Miller showed last season that he has the ability to drive the team to points from poor field position.As OSU is still learning the offense, I expect their defensive talent to have the better success in this game. That said, I expect Miller to lead the Scarlet offense to more breakthroughs, and therefore a Spring Game victory.Score Prediction: Scarlet 20, Gray 14 read more
