Bolt to run at London Diamond League LONDON (AP): Usain Bolt said he will run at the London Diamond League meeting in July, weeks before he defends his Olympic titles in Rio de Janeiro. Bolt will run on July 22-23 at the Olympic Stadium, the venue where he won 100, 200 and 4×100-metre gold at the London Games. The Rio Olympics run from August 5-21, with track and field scheduled for August 12-19. Bolt said he is competing in London because “there are a lot of Jamaicans living in the UK and I always get great support. It is like my home away from home.” Bolt took part in the event this year, winning the 100m. He then won another sprint triple at the World Championships in Beijing in August. Gayle plans Test return in 2016 MELBOURNE, Australia (AP): Former West Indies captain Chris Gayle hopes to return to Test cricket next year after a two-year absence. The 36-year-old Gayle told reporters yesterday in Australia, where he is playing in the Twenty20 Big Bash League, that he hopes to be injury-free and able to bolster a struggling West Indies line-up in 2016. He said a back injury had prevented him playing for the West Indies who were mauled by Australia in a Test in Hobart last week, though he continues to play in lucrative Twenty 20 competitions. Gayle said “there’s no way I could have actually been part of that Test team, I’m just coming back from injury. Next year, hopefully, Test cricket is on the agenda.” Australia to add first-class day-night matches MELBOURNE, Australia (AP): Cricket Australia is continuing its push for more day-night Test cricket, scheduling first-class matches under lights at three venues early next year. Australia beat New Zealand last month in the first ever Test match played under lights and with a pink ball, at the Adelaide Oval. Sheffield Shield matches at Adelaide, the Gabba in Brisbane and the WACA ground in Perth will be played under lights in the round starting February 14 to continue refining the equipment.
18 November 2014 President Jacob Zuma flanked by international relations minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane and finance minister Nhlanhla Nene during the informal BRICS meeting. (Image: GCIS)An interim board of directors has been set up by BRICS to lead the next phase to establish the National Development Bank (NDB), an institution similar to the International Monetary Fund that will support the five emerging national economies.This was announced by BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) during an informal meeting on the first day of the G20 Leaders’ Summit held in Brisbane, Australia from 15 to 16 November, according to a statement from the South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO).Appointment of NDB presidentThe leaders of BRICS also recommended their finance ministers to appoint an NDB president and vice-president well in advance of the next BRICS Summit to be held in the Russian city of Ufa in 2015.The bank, which will be headquartered in Shanghai, China, will focus on BRICS infrastructure projects, but will be also open to new members from the United Nations. Each BRICS country will contribute US$2-billion to the bank’s funds from their budgets over the next seven years. The bank’s authorized capital will be set at US$100 billion.BRICS cooperation at new levelBRICS leaders underscored that the signing of the agreements establishing the NDB and the Contingent Reserve Arrangement (CRA) brought BRICS cooperation “to a fundamentally new level with the creation of instruments to contribute to the stability of the international financial system’, according to DIRCO.“The Leaders asked their Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors to ensure that, by the next BRICS Summit, the CRA Working Group concludes the procedural rules and operational guidelines of the Governing Council and the Standing Committee of the CRA. They also asked their Central Bank Governors to ensure that the Inter-Central Bank Agreement foreseen in the CRA be concluded by the Summit in Russia.’On the G20 Leaders’ Summit, BRICS leaders discussed some of the issues on the agenda, which include measures to promote growth and job creation; investment and infrastructure; trade; and cooperation on tax matters.Global economySix years after the international financial crisis, BRICS leaders noted that a full recovery is yet to be experienced by member countries. However, emerging market economies have been contributing to global economic activity by sustaining high growth rates, despite adverse circumstances and spill-overs from policies of major advanced economies, especially monetary policies.“The Leaders noted the G20 efforts, but underscored that more needs to be done to support global demand in the short-run, especially by advanced economies, and to promote an increase in investment and long-run growth potential. They underscored that investment and economic reforms are critically important to boosting demand and lifting long-term growth. Emerging market economies remain in general well prepared to face external shocks,’ said DIRCO.The BRICS leaders also noted their concern at the non-implementation of the 2010 International Monetary Fund reforms, and its impact on the Fund’s legitimacy and credibility. They said in the event that the United States fails to ratify the 2010 reforms by the end of 2014, they called on the G20 to schedule a discussion of the options for next steps that the IMF has committed to present in January 2015.EbolaThe Ebola epidemic is of concern and has severe economic and social impact, the BRICS leaders noted. They also expressed their commitment to work with the international community in the response to this epidemic and supported efforts made by the United Nations and its agencies, including the World Health Organization, as well as other institutions.In addition, BRICS leaders reaffirmed their commitment to reinforce full-fledged intra-BRICS cooperation as agreed at the Fortaleza Summit in Brazil earlier this year. They said they look forward to the formulation of a long-term economic cooperation framework to forge closer BRICS partnership.SAinfo reporter
Skip the bleachPfeif has been attacking the mold with bleach. That’s a recommendation that pops up frequently, but it’s not without its risks, and it’s unnecessary.“The bleach is working, but my eyes are very itchy, and my cheeks feel irritated,” he complains. “While wearing the N95 respirator the smell of bleach became intolerable. I don’t think I had the mask sealed, and the fumes were trapped under it. I have been fit tested and trained on how to apply the mask, but the 3M mask I purchased at the store was stiff and difficult to mold. I feel like it did more harm than good.”Chappell-Dick says that misting moldy areas with bleach won’t fix the problem and may even make it worse. Also, an N95 mask is for particulates, not exposure to chemicals.“I don’t know enough about chemical exposure protection to say what would protect you from bleach but an N95 won’t,” he says. “I suggest you try calling 3M or another vendor of respirators to get assistance with what type of respirator cartridge is needed. Again, I would not continue the bleach.”Who said anything about bleach? Holladay ask. “Skip the bleach,” he says. “If you need to clean up mold, ordinary soap and water (for example, dish detergent or laundry detergent) is all you need — plus some way of keeping everything dry.”And as for Pfeif’s comment that a friend has offered to power-wash the attic once all of the insulation has been removed, forget it. Malcolm Taylor put it this way: “Pressure washing the attic is an insane idea.” How to seal the air leaksPfeif has bought some canned foam to seal the leaks, but is this the right stuff? Maybe not.“As you move the insulation out of the way and air-seal the cracks, you’ll find that spray foam in a can is useful for big obvious leaks like around ceiling lights and sometimes drywall cracks, but you’ll typically use way more caulk which is easier to tool into place,” says Andy Chappell-Dick.Keith H suggests that Pfeif get pro-grade spray foam equipment (one source is this retailer). “The consumer cans are terrible for applying foam and dry up fast,” Keith says. “You can also get a super long gun if you want for reaching under the roof. A properly stored pro can on a pro gun lasts months.”He adds that while caulk is a common suggestion, his experience has been that caulk shrinks over time. “Foam shrinks, too,” he add, “but is easier to apply in generous quantities.”As the online discussion developed, Pfeif shared the fact that his ceiling consists of tongue-and-groove boards. Holladay suggests that drywall can be an effective air barrier, and it might be the simplest approach in this situation.“The easiest approach is to install drywall on the interior side of the tongue-and-groove boards,” says Holladay. “Of course, that means you won’t see the boards. If you love the boards, and want them to be visible, you can try to remove them carefully so that they can be reinstalled later. As long as they weren’t installed with ring-shank nails, this is probably doable.“After the boards are removed,” Holladay continues, “install drywall with taped joints. Then re-install the boards on the interior side of the drywall (assuming you like the look).” Air Sealing an AtticAll About Attic VentingCreating a Conditioned AtticHow to Build an Insulated Cathedral CeilingQuestions and Answers About Air BarriersAir Barrier or Vapor Barrier? A Building Science Podcast A three-season cabin built in the 1940s became a year-round dwelling two years ago, but owner Marty Pfeif has discovered an alarming problem: a bumper crop of mold in the attic.In a post at the Q&A forum, Pfeif ticks off the particulars, including no apparent attempts at air-sealing, “shake and rake” R-19 insulation on the attic floor and some batting against the walls, no vapor barrier, and a ridge vent but no gable vents.In addition, he’s recently learned that an exhaust duct for the bathroom fan has fallen apart, allowing moist air to spill directly into the attic for the last couple of years.“This week I found mold in the attic, and lots of it!” he writes.“I’m spraying the mold with bleach, and have ordered RMR 80 mold remover,” Pfeif continues. “I have removed a 12×5-foot section of insulation, and I am in the process of air-sealing this section.”When he’s done, he’d like to have a more usable space, either for storage or possibly for use a loft.“The house is only 600 square feet,” he says. “It has vaulted ceilings everywhere but the bedroom and bathroom. I have no idea if mold is growing in this part of the roof. I plan to hire a new contractor, but this time I want to know what should be done, instead of blindly trusting that they will do the job correctly.” Our expert’s opinionHere’s GBA technical director Peter Yost’s take:A common problem with turning cabins in heating climates into year-round homes is that people often insulate first when the required order of updates should actually go like this:(1) Improve bulk water management.(2) Air seal.(3) Do the above while maintaining/designating directional drying.(4) Manage interior and household sources of moisture.(5) Insulate.You could argue that #4 could be moved up one, two, or even three spots. I am OK with that, but #4 must be on the list, and insulation should be dead last.For seasonal cabins which now need to be airtight, you need to bite the bullet and guide your air sealing with a blower door. It doesn’t matter if you or a contractor is doing the work: the blower door will tell you if or when you have managed to improve the building’s airtightness. In my experience, for buildings in cold climates, airtightness should be in the range of 3 to 4 air changes per hour (at 50 pascals) to manage wintertime condensation.Do you need to clean up the mold before you run a blower door? Good question. For most of us, mold spores are just particulate irritants, annoying but not injurious. If you are worried about too much contact with the mold spores, clean them up with soap and water as Martin described. You are physically removing the spores as opposed to trying to “kill” them with bleach.And one more thing on item #4: I get called quite a bit about interior moisture problems in the winter in cold climates just after energy retrofits. Prior to insulating, the home was tolerating quite a bit of interior or occupant moisture loading. But those same loads can become a problem after the energy retrofit. Here is the list — pretty much in order of priority and prevalence — of the interior sources of moisture I find that need to be better managed after the energy retrofit:Cordwood stored in a basement.Exposed dirt or unsealed crawl space floors.Unvented gas appliances (heaters, stovetops, ovens).Lack of, or poorly installed, kitchen range hood.Lack of, or poorly installed, bath exhaust.Clothes dryer vented to the interior during the winter.Greenhouses attached to living spaces.Along with buying at least one decent hygrometer so you know what your overall interior moisture is (see this GBA article: Measuring and Understanding Humidity), check off all of the moisture sources listed above, and you will be in good shape. Don’t make the solution more complicatedPfeif has pondered bleach, pressure washing, new gable events, and vapor barriers, but Chappell-Dick reminds him not to overthink the solution. It’s really all about the air sealing.“People like the look of a board ceiling, especially in a cabin, but by itself it’s not compatible with a heated house,” he writes. “It must have an air barrier added. Draping sheet plastic over the joists in the attic is an awkward solution at best — hard to seal and prone to compromise. Plus, you don’t need any kind of ‘vapor’ or ‘moisture’ barrier on your ceiling — just an air barrier, for reasons that Martin also discussed.“So it may be a tough decision,” Chappel-Dick continued, “but really your only workable solution is to put up drywall on the ceiling, either just covering up the boards, or tear off the boards and reinstall them after the drywall is taped (although FWIW this introduces a thousand nail holes into the drywall…)”Throw out any old insulation that looks moldy and replace it. With an effective air barrier in place, any remaining mold spores will remain dormant and harmless.One footnote: Pfeif should think twice about using that attic for storage or as a loft, Chappell-Dick says. “That’s Yosemite Sam shooting himself in both feet,” he writes. “A usable attic is a troubled attic. With sufficient insulation, an attic is a terrible place to store stuff — dusty, hot, accessible only through a very tightly sealed door. As for the loft idea, you’d have to completely change how the space is insulated and air-sealed; now the roof becomes your thermal and air barrier, which can be a huge challenge in an old building.” RELATED ARTICLES Air leaks are the problemThe cause of the problem is no mystery to GBA senior editor Martin Holladay, who writes, “The most likely cause of the mold is air leaks in your ceiling. These air leaks allow humid interior air (conditioned air) to enter your attic. The moisture in the air condenses on cold attic surfaces, encouraging mold growth.”The ridge vent, he adds, is just making the situation worse because it lowers the air pressure in the attic, thereby pulling air through cracks in the ceiling and adding even more moisture.Holladay’s recommended fix is to temporarily remove the insulation and seal the air leaks. But, he adds, don’t worry about adding a vapor barrier, such as polyethylene plastic, because the problem is air leakage rather than vapor diffusion. “The moisture is piggybacking on exfiltrating air — it’s not diffusing through your drywall,” Holladay wrote (before Pfeif revealed that his ceiling lacked drywall). For more information on the difference between air leakage and vapor diffusion, see the links in the “Related Articles” sidebar.
