first_imgNational team skipper Mika Reyes. Photo by Bong Lozada/iNQUIRERThe biggest challenge for national team skipper Mika Reyes is not managing egos. Instead, it’s bringing together a group of players who came from different teams gathered for one common goal.“Actually, I think my work as a captain isn’t that hard because we’re not kids anymore,” said Reyes in Filipino during the team’s media day Friday at Arellano School of Law. “You won’t have to always tell them what to do.”ADVERTISEMENT “The challenge here is how we’ll bond together as one group, skills-wise, attitude-wise, and character-wise because we didn’t come from one team, we were selected from different teams and this was the only time we were together.”The national squad is composed of players selected from several teams in the Philippine Super Liga with Alyssa Valdez the only one coming from the Premier Volleyball League.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Powerful SA team for Canoe Marathon Worlds

first_img19 June 2014 A powerful South African team, which includes a number of world champions, was named to contest the 2014 ICF Canoe Marathon World Championships on Wednesday. The event takes place in Oklahoma City from 23 to 28 September. A host of big-name competitors made a charge for a spot on the plane to the USA when they recently took part in the biggest South African Canoe Marathon Championships ever and it was three-time canoe marathon world champion Hank McGregor who won the men’s K1 title, as well as the K2 crown with his partner Jasper Mocke. Tough competition With the criteria stating that the top two in each of the senior and junior events would be selected for the South African team, reigning under-23 K1 world champion Andy Birkett missed out on a K1 selection. However, he and partner Greg Louw earned selection in a K2. Although Birkett and Louw were third in the South African Championships, they gained selection due to former Junior and under-23 world champion Grant van Der Walt being unavailable for the Tour. “Grant has been studying recently and so he hasn’t been focusing on his paddling, which meant that he made himself unavailable for selection,” Brett Austen Smith, the Chairman of the South African Canoe Marathon Committee, said in a statement on Wednesday. “That ultimately meant that we could include Andy (Birkett) and Greg (Louw) in the side to go to Oklahoma. “This really highlights the depth in the senior men’s canoe marathon discipline [in South Africa]. With a world champion unable to make the men’s K1 team, that just shows the strength that we possess,” he added.Women’s line-up The women’s team will be made up of one K1 competitor and two K2 pairs, with Olympic bronze medallist Bridgitte Hartley being the only women’s K1 and Abby Adie and Laura O’Donoghue making up the one K2, with under-23 K1 hopeful Jenna Ward and Hayley Arthur partnering up in the second women’s K2. “Bridgitte was in a class of her own in the K1 final,” Austen Smith said of the Natal Canoe Club star’s South African Championships victory by over four minutes. “The depth in women’s canoe marathon paddling is not where it was a year ago and this is something we as a Committee need to address in the build-up to 2017,” he explained. In the Junior Girls’ category, the winning boat won’t be going to Oklahoma as, unfortunately, the junior K2 team made themselves unavailable for selection because one of the girls, who is still in the under-16 age category, has a hectic schedule. Having recently been to the African Youth Games in Botswana, she is also set to head to China in August for the Youth Olympics. “It is a little disappointing not being able to see them race at World Champs,” Austen Smith said. Nonetheless, the South African team, ranked fifth in the world last year, remains very strong and Austen Smith is confident that there are good paddlers coming through, with the under-23 age group being one to watch from a men’s point of view, he said.‘World-class’ “The Under-23 men are very strong this year and I think that both Brandon van der Walt and Stuart Maclaren are world-class paddlers and I believe that we can do really well there,” he opined. “We will be strong in the seniors again, as well as the masters. We will send a very strong field to the World Champs in the masters’ categories, and this year should be no different, although it is not the biggest team we have sent to a World Champs,” Austen Smith concluded.SA WORLD CANOE MARATHON CHAMPIONSHIPS TEAM Senior Men Hank McGregor (K1, K2), Jasper Mocke (K1, K2), Andrew Birkett (K2), Greg Louw (K2) Senior Women Bridgitte Hartley (K1), Nikki Russel (K1), Abby Adie (K2), Laura O’Donoghue (K2), Jenna Ward (K2), Hayley Arthur (K2) Nikki Russel Under-23 Men Brandon van der Walt (K1), Stuart Maclaren (K1) Under-23 Women Jenna Ward (K1), Brittany Petersen (K1) Junior Boys Bryan Leroux (K1, K2), Louis Hattingh (K1, K2), Jean van der Westhuizen (K2), Stuart Bristow (K2) Junior Girls Julia Trodd (K1), Martine Beukes (K1) Masters Team Marion Young (K1, K2), Gustav Smook (K1, K2), Gustav Radloff (K1, K2), Katarzyna Lapacz (K1), Hilde Lapere (K1), Lee McGregor (K1, K2), Alan Hold (K1, K2), Chris van den Berg (K1), John Evans (K1, K2) Len Jenkins Snr (K1), Nigel Briggs (K2), Cathy Doherty-Bigara (K2), Linton Hope (K1) SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Rating Windows for Condensation Resistance

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Condensation forms on a surface when the temperature of the surface is below the dew point of the air. During the winter, when the coldest surface in a room is often the window, it’s fairly common to see water droplets or ice on window glass — especially in a room with elevated indoor humidity.Condensation is more likely to form when indoor relative humidity is high. That’s why it’s more common to see condensation on a bathroom window than a bedroom window.Condensation is more likely to form on cold surfaces than warm surfaces. That’s why it’s more common to see condensation on a single-glazed window than a double-glazed window.Older Americans who grew up in the days of single-glazed windows remember the joy of waking up on a cold winter morning to see beautiful frost patterns — swirls, vines, and lacy leaves — on their bedroom windows. And who can forget the frost-covered windows in the Hollywood version of Dr. Zhivago?On today’s low-e windows, however, such frost patterns are extremely rare.In theory, a window with a high R-value (that is, a low U-factor) should do a good job of resisting condensation. However, even a low-U window can have a condensation problem. That’s because a window’s U-factor is an area-weighted average of the U-factors of the different window components. Window condensation is a thermal bridging problem, not an average U-factor problem.The coldest part of most modern windows is the bottom half-inch of glazing. (Although the width of the space between the panes of modern insulated glazing units has been optimized to minimize the effect of convective looping in the gas between the panes, convective looping still occurs. Naturally, the gas at the bottom of the gap — whether air or argon —… Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details.center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?
