Arnett head to Haiti for CFU Club Championship semi-finals

first_imgArnett Gardens FC will depart the island this morning at 11’o clock for a semi-final showdown against W Connection of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championship in Haiti. In the other semi-final clash, Don Bosco will square off against Central FC. The top three teams in the CFU tournament will qualify for the 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions’ Cup. The semi-final winners will meet in the final, while the losers will be engaged in a third place-off to decide the other qualifier for the CONCACAF stage. Renae Lloyd, who was injured early in the team’s second leg Red Stripe Premier League semi-final, will not make the trip. They lost the two-way tie 4-3 to Montego Bay United FC and were dethroned of the local title. “This is the final round in the CFU. We have two chances to advance to the CONCACAF stage, but we will be trying our best to win the Caribbean title for the first time,” Jerome Waite, head coach of Arnett, told The Gleaner yesterday of his team that ended runners-up last time. “This is my third stint in the CFU, and we will be looking to put the disappointment of losing the local Premier League behind,” he added. Their top players are captain Oneil Thompson, Damion Hyatt, Kemal Malcolm, Michaelous Martin, Dicoy Williams, Kenneil Hyde, Dicoy Williams, Vishinul Harris and Jason Moore.last_img read more

‘I want to leave’ – Nolito sick of English weather and wants Man City exit

first_img1 Nolito is sick of the Manchester weather Spanish forward Nolito wants to leave Manchester City this summer as he is sick of the English weather, which he says has made his daughter ‘look like she’s been living in a cave.The 30-year-old arrived from Celta Vigo last summer for £13.8million but has failed to settle in England.Nolito made the last of his nine Premier League starts on Boxing Day as he quickly fell out of favour with manager Pep Guardiola.The Spain international has struggled to adjust to his new surroundings and even admits the Rainy City’s often bleak weather has had a detrimental effect on his family.“I am under the contract, so the club will decide, but I want to leave,” he told Spanish radio station El Transistor.“I haven’t played in six months. I will do everything possible to make Spain’s World Cup squad.“I have learnt very, very little English – it’s very hard. Just ‘tomorrow’, ‘good morning’, ‘good afternoon’ and a little more.“My daughter’s face has changed colour – it looks like she’s been living in a cave.”Nolito was pictured with Sevilla’s sporting director Oscar Arias in Seville this week, although the player insisted it was just a chance meeting.“I was just casually shopping for clothes for my wife in Seville,” he said.“I went to get a coffee and bumped into Sevilla’s director of football casually.”Fellow LaLiga side Atletico Madrid have also been linked with a loan move for the player.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — March 15, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180315_RyanMartinOur forecast pattern is basically unchanged this morning for the near term. We have at least 2 more dry days statewide, today and tomorrow. Temps will be near normal, but winds stay brisk enough for us to feel a chill. We should see temps climb into the 40s and low 50s.Our weekend wave is trending a little farther north this morning. Generally, this is part of a low pressure circulation that’s moving from IA and northern MO into the OH and TN valleys, on its way to becoming yet another potential “nor’easter” for the east coast early next week. But its track is farther north, and so we have to allow for a few hundredths up to a quarter of an inch of rain up into SW Ohio, perhaps up to the I-70 corridor through Columbus and toward Zanesville. The action will not be all that impressive, but with this move north, we can expect clouds to be more dominant Saturday morning and midday over the rest of the state. Still, we are better off than our friends to the west, who now expect a damp start to the weekend over a much bigger part of the state than what had been talked about. We should see sun break back out there for late Saturday afternoonWe are dry for Saturday night, Sunday and Monday now, with sunshine and blue sky back in over the state for Sunday, even for the first part of Monday. Clouds arrive late Monday afternoon, and then Monday night we see scattered showers moving in over southern Ohio. Through the overnight and Tuesday, this action builds north, and will bring rains of .25”-.6” to nearly 100% of the state. Cold north winds will be in on the backside of the low, and that means. Strong north and northwest winds keep lake effect snow potential in here for all of Wednesday morning, and we won’t rule out some accumulations up north through Wednesday. This will look similar to the setup we had a couple days ago Tuesday and even this past Wednesday morning: cold air and a nice lake effect set up…but this time we have more moisture in the atmosphere to start with, thanks to backside rotation behind this strong low.Clouds give way to sunshine next Thursday as snow moves out, and we have full sun on the way for Friday. But, it will be cool. Then a front starts to work in for the 24th that has plenty of south flow ahead of it. That should take temps slightly above normal, and then also allow for good rains to fill in later Saturday afternoon through Sunday. We can see .25”-.75” rains for the 24th-25th with coverage at 70%.The extended pattern shows a strong circulation still for the 27th and 28th. Models suggest we can see the gulf bring up some nice moisture into this low, triggering moderate to heavy rains. It’s early but we are considering raising our rain totals for that part of the forecast period to 1-2 inches, based on a track right across from central MO to Toledo. There is plenty of time for this to change, but this may be a wet finish to the month of March.The rest of the extended period will try and confirm that, as another front is being projected for arrival around the 30th.last_img read more

Choosing HVAC Equipment for an Energy-Efficient Home

first_imgUPDATED on March 2, 2017 with information on the Dettson furnace rated at 15,000 Btu/h.Why are the smallest available American furnaces rated at about 40,000 Btuh? Back in the 1960s, a house in a cold climate may have needed such a powerful furnace — or even one rated at 60,000 or 80,000 Btuh. But these days, many new homes have design heating loads that are much smaller — as low as 10,000 to 20,000 Btuh. Over the past 30 years, building envelopes have become tighter and better insulated, but U.S. furnace manufacturers haven’t kept up with the times. For mysterious reasons, they don’t offer furnaces that are small enough for today’s energy-conscious builders.I wrote about this frustrating problem in a 2009 article, “Heating a Tight, Well-Insulated House.” In the four years since the article was written, furnace manufacturers haven’t budged; their smallest models are still twice as big as most energy-efficient builders need.John Straube is a professor of building envelope science at the University of Waterloo in Canada, as well as a principal at the Building Science Corporation in Massachusetts. Straube has been wrestling for years with the question of how to heat small, energy-efficient homes. On February 7, 2013, Straube gave a presentation on the topic (“HVAC for Low-Load Buildings”) at the Better Buildings by Design conference in Burlington, Vermont.Straube defines a low-load house as one with a design heat load of less than 25,000 Btuh or a design cooling load of less than 1.5 tons. Homes like this are increasingly common. “Peak demand for superinsulated houses of 2,000 square feet is often 20,000 btuh or less, and townhouses can be under 12,000 btuh,” Straube noted in Burlington.If you install conventional (oversized) equipment in a low-load building, says Straube, “You get a choice of freezing or cooking.”Builders in Ontario are now reporting comfort complaints from homeowners… This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member?
