You’ve found affordable housing and a low-rate loan for a reliable used car. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, joyful, budget-breaking news arrives. Twins?That type of scenario drove home the challenges of making ends meet for about 80 students participating in a “Mad City Money” financial simulation co-hosted by $118 million, 14,300-member United Educational Credit Union, Battle Creek, Mich.In the simulation, marketed by the Credit Union National Association, students receive packets that assign jobs, salaries and family circumstances. They move from booth to booth, which are manned by adult “salespeople,” to shop for housing, transportation, furnishings and other necessities and extras. Along the way, they receive messages from the “Fickle Finger of Fate” delivering unexpected news to break or boost their budgets.“The key to the success of this learning experience is absolutely the hands-on element, plus some chaos and student/adult interaction mixed in,” says Joan Miller, executive assistant/marketing for United Educational CU. “In most cases, the adults at the various booths were there to sell, not necessarily guide the students to the most sensible option, just like they might encounter in real life. The CU booth was different, however, as it was the place to seek help, along with handling financial transactions.” continue reading »last_img read more

first_imgAfter a dominating 22-point victory against Long Beach State, the Women of Troy (2-1) now set their sights on playing a much stronger and more physical opponent in the No. 18 Georgia Bulldogs (3-0).  Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Galen Center.Driving in · Senior guard Jacki Gemelos led the Women of Troy with 14 points against Long Beach State last weekend. USC is currently 2-0. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan With the Bulldogs featuring a  high-powered offense similar to  Duke’s — who beat USC by 25 points last Monday in North Carolina — the Women of Troy expect the same type of game, but believe they’ll be ready to play.“It’s going to be a similar game like Duke was,” said senior guard Jacki Gemelos. “They’re going to have big, physical girls, but we’re going to have to toughen up and [play].”After a balanced scoring effort against the 49ers, the coaching staff was very pleased with the way the offense performed on Sunday.“When players get more accustomed to what we’re trying to do, we look at sharing the basketball,” USC coach Michael Cooper said. “When you share the basketball, everyone’s having fun and working hard for one another.”Though the Women of Troy employed a different starting lineup against the 49ers, the players still managed to make things work both offensively and defensively.The Bulldogs are coached by Andy Landers, who is in his 32nd season at Georgia.  They are led by sophomore guard Jasmine James (13.7 points per game) and senior forward Porsha Phillips (11.7 ppg, 10.7 rebounds per game).Besides those two players, there are other contributors in their frontcourt, including sophomore forwards Jasmine Hassell and Tamika Willis.With such a big frontline, the Bulldogs have managed to outrebound their opponents by 16 rebounds per game this year.“We match up well with them, but they’re a very good athletic team,” Cooper said.  “We have our work cut for us.”One area the coaching staff still emphasizes to the Women of Troy is rebounding and tonight won’t be any different.“No rebounds — no rings,” Cooper said.  “If you want to compete with the elite teams, you’re going to have to [rebound].”With such a strong non-conference schedule to begin the season, the Women of Troy have already been tested this year.But with each practice, the team believes it will continue to get better as long as its hard work and effort translates to the game.“It starts in practice every day,” Gemelos said.  “If we practice like we have been, it should definitely carry into the game.”last_img read more

first_imgSixteen senators urged the Trump administration Wednesday to continue immigration protections for 50,000 Haitians living in the U.S. because of severe hardships back home.The senators, all Democrats, sent a letter responding to a recommendation by the head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to end “temporary protected status” for Haitians by January.The U.S. government has granted such protections to foreigners from 13 countries hammered by natural disasters, famine or war.In the letter written by Senator Bob Mendenez, to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, the senators said Haiti still hasn’t recovered from the devastating 2010 earthquake and last year’s Hurricane Matthew.The temporary protection program was created for foreigners “when extraordinary conditions in their home country pose a serious threat to personal safety,” wrote the senators, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. “Given Haiti’s many challenges, the United States’ focus should be to prioritize disaster assistance and recovery, not to return Haitian nationals to a country lacking the capacity to support them.”“More than seven years after the devastating earthquake and resulting humanitarian crisis, Haiti has yet to recover,” the senators wrote.Kelly, who has the final say, has not decided on the Haitians’ fate yet, Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan said.last_img read more

first_imgA year ago, I looked on the web for information about repairing a poorly designed SIP (structural insulated panel) roof system. I found Green Building Advisor and posted questions here. It was suggested that I share my roof repair experience for the benefit of others who may be grappling with the same misfortune as mine. Here is my story.In 1997, my two sisters remodeled a summer cottage built by my great-grandfather, Victor Poole, in Bailey’s Harbor, Wisconsin. They replaced most of the house with a SIP system. At the time, this was a new method. The roof is made of 16 foot long panels, either 3 feet, 4 feet, or 6 feet wide, spanning from the ridge to the eaves. Each panel has a groove in each edge which receives a 3 3/8-inch spline made of extruded polystyrene (XPS) faced with OSB on the inside and outside surfaces. There is no structural lumber incorporated in the panel joints.The core of each panel is made of 7 1/4-inch-thick expanded polystyrene (EPS); the EPS is faced with 1/2-inch OSB on both the inner and outer surfaces. The total panel thickness matches that of a 2×8. No help from the SIP manufacturerThree or four years ago, the mounts for the rooftop TV antenna gave out and we began to notice swelling under the asphalt shingles where the seams between the roof panels were splined together (see Image #1, above). RELATED ARTICLES Q&A: Is it possible to repair a SIP roof that is rotting?Q&A: Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) roof decayHow to Protect Structural Insulated Panels from DecayHow to Make a SIP Roof BetterTrouble on the Roof Air Sealing SIP Seams Catastrophic rotThis project was a can of worms. Moist air movement in SIP seams can be catastrophic. I was so afraid that my roof was in terrible shape that I considered tearing off the roof and replacing it with an energy-inefficient roof.I took a vacation from my regular life to be on site for this project. The two crews I hired were great to work with. Their philosophy was that they would find a way to solve the problems that came up, and they did.The roofing crews tried to give us a quote based on what we thought we would find, but what we found was different. They adapted quickly. They were good at thinking and hashing out ideas in a genuine and diplomatic manner. Since I was right there, we made decisions in five minutes that could have taken hours or days otherwise.This project took 14 work days to complete, but that time frame included 154 square feet of conventional re-roofing. Advise to owners of SIP roofsSIP construction requires extremely tight joints. Joints should be filled with foam continuously or at close intervals so that there is no chance for air movement. If there is any way to incorporate an air barrier on the inside surface of the roof, then that should be also be done — with great care and attention to detail.Wiring and plumbing passageways in foam panels should be foamed-in where possible to block air movement. Indoor humidity levels in winter (especially in cold climates) should be monitored and controlled.If you are not good at details or obsessing over a tight fit, then you should not attempt to install a SIP roof. But if your SIP roof has crumbled, my experience is that it can be successfully repaired.For a SIP roof repair project, these questions must be answered:Is the roof structurally sound enough to be worked on?Can the upward/outward movement of moist house air be stopped?Can I find a contractor who understands this kind of work, who is willing to take on a project of uncertain scope?For my project, we discovered a roof with no viable outside nailing surface. We were able to scrape off the rotten OSB and apply a new nailing surface on a 12/12 pitch roof. A small amount of the OSB was sound, so we had to fit the new plywood around it. We encountered the most difficult roof conditions and managed to prevail.I feel that we have adequately addressed the causes of the failure and restored the roof to its original structural and functional condition. Let’s see if the test of time agrees. I will keep you posted. The design of the SIPs and caulking method prescribed for sealing the seams between the panels did not prevent moist inside air in wintertime from traveling upward within the seams and eventually condensing on the asphalt felt underlayment. Over the years, water accumulated on the OSB, especially at the seams. A spot inspection over a seam revealed that the glue that held the OSB chips together was decomposing from the excess moisture. Galvanized roofing nails were rusting through and some shingles were coming loose. Though the outside OSB on the panels was structurally compromised, and the panel’s unsupported span was 16 feet in many places, structural failure was not a concern.I sought help from the company that sold us the panels. I knew that the SIP design and the prescribed caulking material were at least part of the problem. Other SIP roofs with similar construction details must also be failing or have failed. The company should have already encountered these problems and I hoped that they would be eager to help their customers with proven remedies. However, they were quick to refuse any guidance at all. They advised me to look to the building contractor for solutions and seemed unwilling to acknowledge that their design was flawed. Gluing new plywood to the EPS panel coresOnce this work was done, the roof was swept and blown clean with a leaf blower.We needed a system to apply pressure to the new layer of 9/16 inch plywood that we were gluing to the EPS panels. The roof was too steep for weights to be a reliable solution.We talked about using 8-inch-long screws to go through the 7 1/4 inched of foam to the inner OSB (which was also the ceiling). We settled on an idea that used the 2x8s that were located in the ridge and at the eave for fastening a series of 18-foot-long 2x6s, on edge, using 8-inch hex-head wood screws (see Image #7, below).We would lay down a grid of PL300 foam adhesive from a large caulk gun, match the surfaces of the rigid foam and the new plywood, hold them apart till tacky, and then reset the piece of plywood and quickly bolt down a few of the 18-foot 2x6s on edge over the plywood.To focus the pressure on the glued plywood, we used 2 or 3 opposing stacked cedar shingles, and drove them together with a hammer until we had the plywood pressed against the roof. Glue setting time was 20 minutes. We ran the 4’x8′ sheets of plywood horizontally and avoided having a plywood seam break over the EPS panel seams. The south roof wasn’t as rottenThe south-facing roof was in much better condition because the sun baked out more of the moisture from the OSB. Though the panel edges were swollen and crumbling, the OSB elsewhere was solid enough to be nailed into.We decided to glue and air-nail a layer of 9/16-inch plywood over the original OSB (see Image #8, below). As I did on the north roof, I drilled holes on 8-inch centers along the panel edges to blow Great Stuff canned spray foam into the spaces between the splines and the panels.Once we had new plywood on the roof surface, the rest of the roofing project proceeded predictably and quickly. The whole job took about two weeks.center_img Adding canned spray foam to the SIP seamsI began to hope that all the OSB on the north roof was soft and rotten — that would have made removal of the OSB easier — but that was not the case. After the panels were scraped clean of the rotted OSB, they still looked like OSB, because the texture and color was embedded in the foam.All the rotted OSB on the roof was scraped off the foam panel surface. We pulled the partially rotted 3 3/8-inch-wide OSB strip from the block spline of each joint. When these splines were manufactured, the foam in the block splines was kerfed with a saw to a depth of about 2 inches, presumably to give the splines some “give” (see the illustration above). We broke out 2 inches of the EPS spline, down to this kerf, to create a channel to lay down a layer of spray foam in the panel joint where there was once space that allowed interior air into the seam. I then drilled 3/8-inch holes on 8 inch centers, to blow Great Stuff canned spray foam into the space between the block spline and panel. (Canned spray foam produces more volume and cures faster if it is sprayed with a mist of water.) On the north side, most of the OSB was rottenThe most important thing, I felt, was to find a way to stop air movement in the panel seams. If that could not be accomplished, the problem would eventually return. I had to wait till the roofing was torn off before I could decide what to do.My sister located a coalition of two locally well-known contractors: Up Top Roofing, operated by Jim McCarthy from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin; and Appleport Builders, operated by Terry Lindenberg of Sister Bay, Wisconsin.Terry had experience with SIP construction. He and his crew were involved in the job for as long as we needed them to adequately address the unique problems of repairing a rotting SIP roof. The combined manpower of the two crews was enough to get the roof done quickly.On August 1st, we set up scaffolding for the north-facing roof, which has a 12/12 pitch. Terry adapted two long ladders so that they could be hooked over the peak. The asphalt shingles were loosely attached and came off in large gobs (see Image #2 at the bottom of the article). We quickly learned that that the OSB was rotten — not just at the seams, but across almost the entire roof (see Image #3). Our plan for repair and cost estimates were discarded.I found two garden hoes in the shed, and they became our most useful tool for removing the OSB chips from the EPS panels (see Image #4, below). The illustration above shows, top to bottom: (1) the block spline with the 3 3/8-inch-wide rotted OSB strip removed, (2) the EPS foam broken out to the depth of the kerf, (3) the resulting space filled with Great Stuff canned spray foam.Image #5 (at the bottom of the article) shows how we re-foamed the seam splines. A Japanese pull saw was great for sawing the foam flush with the roof once the foam had cured. We ended up with an unvented “hot” roofOne other approach that we considered, but did not use, would have been to strip the OSB, then glue 1×3 nailing strips on 16 inch centers, vertically, then nail or screw the plywood to them. This would have created ventilation channels for the roof. The ridge and eave would have had to be vented.SIP roofs can get really hot. Installing asphalt shingles over foam insulation without ventilation channels can reduce the lifespan of the shingles. Some shingle manufacturers void their regular warranties on such installations. Providing ventilation channels would also have allowed any moisture that migrated through the panels to drain off or evaporate.The ventilation channels would have kept the roofing shingles cooler, and would also have kept the outside layer of OSB (the nailing surface) drier.

first_imgWe explore French artist and filmmaker Hervé Cohen’s “Life Underground,” a hybrid art installation documentary collaboration with Tonian Irving.All images via “Life Underground.”We live in a world that is somehow both highly connected (through complex transportation systems and online communities) yet also very divided — by political, social, and ethical boundaries. For one French filmmaker and interactive designer, Hervé Cohen, art presents a way to connect the dots.At this year’s SXSW Conference, Cohen’s “Life Underground” exhibit — a part of the SXSW Arts Program — showcases how this documentary filmmaker can use a traditional medium (film) in a non-traditional way by creating an interactive exhibit that allows audiences to seamlessly travel between 13 different subway stations across the globe. At each stop, audiences encounter three different stories of people from different nationalities, orientations, and worldviews for a broader appreciation of the whole.We chatted with Cohen about his project, the idea behind it, how he did it, and what he hopes it will accomplish.The Cinematic Beauty of the UndergroundOne of the biggest goals I have for this project is to reveal the beauty of underground places. It’s very cinematic. I’m from Paris originally, where I know my city and my subway, but I’m fascinated by exploring other urban transit environments and meeting the people who travel them every day.“Life Underground” is about as ambitious a project as they come — it spans continents, cities, and perspectives. From Montreal to Los Angeles to Hong Kong and back to Madrid, Cohen’s vérité -style camera follows both foot traffic and people at rest while interviewing subjects along the way.An Interactive DocumentaryOriginally the idea was to do a feature-length documentary, but for now it’s meant to be used online on a computer as a individual experience, or to be viewed as an installation where it’s a shared experience — just like people would share space in a subway.Cohen’s installation at SXSW is meant for both online and in-person audiences. At SXSW, the exhibit is set up in an intimate room with four large-scale, free-standing projections, each looping through more than 10 passenger stories; however, online, viewers can control the experience by clicking through the different stops however they’d like.A Point A-to-Point B LifeSubways are usually channeling in and out of big metropolitan areas where you have people from all different places on Earth brought together. It’s the same urban point A-to-point B lifestyle that brings people together. Different backgrounds, but the same human energy.Cohen talks a lot about the odd juxtaposition each city represents. On one hand, each environment is completely different from the others in regards to languages, colors and people; however, on the other hand, because they are such heavily populated areas, the same divisiveness is persistent throughout.Capturing Authentic MomentsFor most of the production, I primarily shot on a Sony a7S II — which because of its small size people wouldn’t usually pay much attention to me. At each city, I had an assistant, who would also serve as translator, working with a Zoom H6 to record ambient sounds and the interviews.The Sony a7S II really is about as inconspicuous as they come. However, Cohen’s genuine nature and artistic approachability allowed him to connect with people and film the interviews in a meaningful way. As you watch, people open up about their dreams, their fears, their anxieties, and the other aspects of their daily lives. When you watch several at the same time, these stories begin to blend together in a way that is both soothing and fascinating.“Life Underground,” like its subjects, is an ongoing project. Cohen plans to continue capturing more cities’ subways — Warsaw is now complete, and Taiwan is up next.
