The site of the Osler House lies at the edge of Brasilia’s pilot plan, at the tip of one of Paranoá Lake estuaries. The house is a poetic commentary on modern architecture, above all on Brazilian modernism, starting from a contemporary re-reading of the building materials and techniques. Save this picture!Cross SectionSave this picture!Longitudinal SectionSave this picture!ElevationThe plan of the Osler house is structured by a ground floor volume, a suspended volume and a deck with an outdoor pool.  The box of concrete and wood on ground, houses the main suite, a bedroom, bathroom, the utilities area and the garage.  The vertical wooden brises filter the light and can open in their entirety, diluting the relationship between the internal and the external.  The upper volume propped on the ground-floor volume, on one side, and on pilotis on the other; accommodates the living room, the kitchen (done with low-height furniture) and a small office.  This upper box creates a shady area and over the ground-floor prism, an extension of the living room, is the solarium. Save this picture!© Pedro VannucchiAn outdoor staircase connects the deck alongside the pool to the upper solarium. An indoor staircase forms the daily circulation of the house. Near the main circulation, in the foyer of the house, an Athos Bulcão panel was especially designed and it is, possibly, his last project. The tiles that are in most famous classic buildings in Brasilia build the space here as well; a work of art designed for the house, designed with the architecture, that the artist could not see completed.

Tagliapietra predicts bright future for Hamilton’s ‘magic’ Michael McGovern

Tagliapietra predicts bright future for Hamilton’s ‘magic’ Michael McGovern

first_imgHamilton keeper Michael McGovern deserves a big summer move, according to team-mate Lucas Tagliapietra. His New Douglas Park deals expires at the end of the current campaign but Tagliapietra insists he will continue to follow his dreams, even if he finds it difficult saying goodbye each time he moves on. “It’s hard not to get attached to guys in your dressing room because as a player, they are not just a team-mate, sometimes they are a friend,” he explained. “When you move on, that can be the hardest thing in football. It’s your career, though, so you sometimes have to make those hard decisions. “I know what it’s like. I’m always far from home. When you move to a new country, the players and staff at your new club can become like your family. When you have to leave it is difficult. “But I’m not thinking about settling down in one place yet. I’m just thinking about doing my best here and see what the future brings because I have my dreams as well.” But the big Brazilian defender just hopes the Northern Irishman decides to stay put at Accies. McGovern is out of contract at the end of the season and has been liked with a move to Hibernian when his deal expires. Hamilton boss Martin Canning has already set up renewal talks but McGovern is in no rush to make a decision. The 31-year-old has the chance to put himself in the shop window when he appears for Michael O’Neill’s Green and White Army at next summer’s Euro 2016 finals and he could wait until after the tournament to make up his mind. Tagliapietra, speaking ahead of Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership visit of Ross County, said: “We all know Mikey is magic. He is a good keeper. Of course every centre-back wants to have a Mikey behind him. “We know he is working hard and gets what he deserves. But I’d also like it if he stays here. “It’s great having someone like him in the team. He is a leader and gives us security. I feel safe with him in the side. “I have played with some good goalkeepers in my career but here, Mikey is the captain. He has different qualities as well as experience. He passes that on to us and that’s great for a young player like me.” Like McGovern, Tagliapietra is keeping his options open. The 25-year-old has led a nomadic existence since leaving his homeland in 2011, having also had spells in Hong Kong and Moldova. Press Associationlast_img read more

Top-four battle heats up for Premier League’s big spenders

Top-four battle heats up for Premier League’s big spenders

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | The intensifying battle for Champions League places takes centre stage in the Premier League this weekend as Liverpool host Tottenham, while Manchester United and Chelsea seek to recover from damaging defeats.Just five points now separate United in second from Spurs in fifth, with the riches and prestige of a place in the Champions League for next season fuelling a record £430 million ($611 million, 492 million euros) splurge in the January transfer window.Arsenal sit a distant sixth, six points behind their north London rivals, provoking an uncharacteristically busy window of comings and goings at the Emirates.Top four contenders at a crossroadsPhilippe Coutinho’s 160-million-euro move to Barcelona meant Liverpool ended January in the black despite splashing out a world-record £75 million for a defender on Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk.Despite holding their own in this season’s Champions League and domestically, Liverpool and Spurs are not even in the top 10 for net spend on transfers in the Premier League this season.However, the steady progress achieved by both clubs under Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino will be threatened if they miss out on next season’s Champions League, making Sunday’s clash at Anfield all the more vital.A dominant 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Wednesday underlined Spurs’ return to form and a win at Anfield would move them ahead of their hosts in the table. Back-to-back defeats to Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion raised questions over Liverpool’s decision not to invest in a direct replacement for Coutinho but they bounced back to see off Huddersfield 3-0 in midweek and remain unbeaten in the league at Anfield this season.Aubameyang’s bowA forward line partnering new recruits Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan with Mesut Ozil, who has signed a new long-term deal, means the pessimism of a damaging 3-1 defeat at Swansea on Tuesday was quickly forgotten.However, with Spurs and City to follow Everton’s visit to the Emirates, Arsene Wenger will need to former Dortmund duo to quickly re-establish their partnership to keep in touch with the other challengers. The Gunners could also quickly come to rue their winter clearout as Theo Walcott returns to the Emirates fresh from scoring twice to secure Everton’s first win of 2018 against Leicester on Wednesday.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

Hawks pound Leafs 13-2 in Murdoch Division playoff opener

first_imgThe Nelson Daily SportsSo much for the Nelson Leafs surprising the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.The Hawks exploded for seven first-period goals en route to a 13-2 trouncing of the Leafs in game one of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Divisional Semi Final series Tuesday in Fruitvale.
Beaver Valley leads the best-of-seven series 1-0 with game two set for Wednesday night in Fruitvale. Games three and four shift back to Nelson Friday and Saturday at the NDCC Arena.

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – FRIDAY DECEMBER 30, 2016

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – FRIDAY DECEMBER 30, 2016

first_imgOUTSIDE GOOD DRAW FOR JIMMY BOUNCERJimmy Bouncer tries to remain perfect over Santa Anita’s main track when he runs in Saturday’s Grade III Midnight Lute Stakes for three-year-olds and up at 6 ½ furlongs.The five-year-old Square Eddie gelding trained by Doug O’Neill for Reddam Racing won two sprints on the dirt course in 2014.“He’s undefeated on dirt here and he landed a good post,” O’Neill said. “It’s a small field and a Grade III in our own back yard. I think he’s got a good chance.”The Midnight Lute, named for 2007 and 2008 Breeders’ Cup Sprint winner: Tough Sunday, Tyler Baze, 7-2; Solid Wager, Victor Espinoza, 8-1; St. Joe Bay, Kent Desormeaux, 9-5; Navy Hymn, Rafael Bejarano, 5-2; Jimmy Bouncer, Mario Gutierrez, 5-2. HAIL CAESAR, HALTS RUN AS TRAINER ON MONDAY            Caesar Dominguez, a mainstay among Southern California-based trainers going on four decades, will saddle his last horse Monday when he sends out Ladies Man.“That will be the last horse I’ll run for a while,” the personable and always upbeat 67-year-old El Paso native said Friday morning at Clockers’ Corner.“I don’t know if I want to say I’m retiring or I’m just taking a break, but in the meantime, I am taking a break, maybe call it semi-retired. I want to stay in racing because I love it, so I’ll try being a jockey’s agent, and if it works fine, if it doesn’t work, I still have my clients and horses in New Mexico, and I can always bring them back for Del Mar.“But as of right now, I’m going to take a break from training, but I have not talked to any jockey about taking his book. If someone comes along and looks good enough, I’ll stick around. If not, and nothing develops for two or three months and I decide I don’t want to be a jockey’s agent, I’ll resume training.“My tack and equipment will be in storage and I have six babies in New Mexico (with younger brother, Henry), so I could bring them in, but as of right now, my heart is set on being an agent. I only have two horses left. One runs today (5-2 morning line choice Really a Gem in the eighth race) and the other, Ladies Man, is entered on Monday.“I’ll give those horses to a trainer who worked with me for a long time, Walther Solis. Hopefully, whatever rider I get can ride them.”It’s not that Dominguez is hurting for money. “I just want to stay in the game and have something to do,” he said.As a trainer of quarter horses, Dominguez won more than 1,200 races and more than 100 stakes. He was that industry’s Trainer of the Year in 1989 and won seven Grade I events with Takin on the Cash, winner of the $500,000 Kindergarten that year and Sophomore Champion in 1990. Caesar’s uncles trained quarter horses in Texas and New Mexico, and he began working for them at age 10 in 1959 at Sunland Park. He moved to California in 1966.He saddled five stakes winners in 1992 at Fairplex, matching his 1991 output, and captured his first Thoroughbred training title. He tied with three others for the Fairplex crown with six wins in 1998.His first graded stakes win with a Thoroughbred came in 1993 when $10,500 yearling buy Fit To Lead won the Grade II Santa Ynez by 5 ½ lengths at 8-1 under Corey Nakatani. MIDNIGHT STORM THRIVES ON PRESSUREBreeders’ Cup Classic winner Arrogate, poised to supplant reigning king of the handicap ranks California Chrome, has been entered to face four rivals in the Grade II, $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes for four-year-olds and up at 1 1/16 miles on New Year’s Day.Whether he can match or surpass California Chrome in popularity remains to be seen, but at least one trainer opines that Arrogate may not have a walk in the park despite his 1-5 morning line odds set forth in the San Pasqual by line maker Jon White.That would be Phil D’Amato, who trains versatile speedster Midnight Storm, a graded stakes winner on turf and dirt coming off a smashing 7 ¾-length victory in the 1 1/8-mile Native Diver Stakes at Del Mar on a “good” main track Nov. 27.Midnight Storm, a six-year-old full horse by Pioneerof the Nile out of the Bertrando mare My Tina, was ridden by Mike Smith in the Native Diver, but since Smith is committed to Arrogate, Rafael Bejarano pilots Midnight Storm in the San Pasqual.“I’m going to leave it up to Rafael and go from there,” D’Amato said when asked about strategy, adding, “I’ll tell you one thing; the more pressure I put on this horse, the more he thrives. I’m expecting a big performance out of him.”The field for the San Pasqual, race eight of nine: Prospect Park, Norberto Arroyo Jr., 10-1; Accelerate, Tyler Baze, 8-1; Dalmore, Kent Desormeaux, 20-1; Midnight Storm, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1; and Arrogate, Mike Smith, 1-5. D’AMATO SEES A ‘BIG PERFORMANCE’ VS. ARROGATEMOKAT ON OUTSIDE LOOKING IN FOR AMERICAN OAKSSHIRREFFS: BOBBY FRANKEL ‘CARED FOR HIS HORSES’JIMMY BOUNCER DRAWS WELL FOR THE MIDNIGHT LUTEDOMINGUEZ TO TAKE TRAINING BREAK AFTER 39 YEARSMASSIVE TWO-DAY PICK SIX CARRYOVER HITS $361,436 MOKAT HAS THE RIGHT STUFF FOR GRADE I OAKSMokat drew the extreme outside 13 post position for Saturday’s American Oaks, but Richard Baltas feels it won’t be a major factor for the three-year-old daughter of Uncle Mo in the Grade I race scheduled for a mile and a quarter on turf.“I don’t think it’s going to hurt,” the trainer said. “If they do come down the hill it will be a little tricky. But I’m more concerned about the rain and whether she’ll like soft turf.”Mokat was wide finishing sixth in the Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Keeneland last out on Oct. 15, but won the Grade II San Clemente going a mile from post eight and was second by a half length from post nine in the one mile Jimmy Durante two years ago.“The course at Keeneland was deep but not soft,” Baltas said. “Mokat galloped well this morning going a mile on the training track, so she’s coming up to the race the right way.”The field for the Oaks: Lady Valeur, Rafael Bejarano, 15-1; Stays in Vegas, Flavien Prat, 7-2; Dreamarcher, Luis Contreras, 30-1; How Unusual, Alex Solis, 30-1; Cheekaboo, Mike Smith, 8-1; Sassy Little Lila, Luis Saez, 9-2; Decked Out, Kent Desormeaux, 4-1; Queen Blossom, Joel Rosario, 9-2; Mrs. Norris, Victor Espinoza, 30-1; Sheeza Milky Way, Brice Blanc, 12-1; Dynamic Mizzes K, Corey Nakatani, 30-1; Barleysugar, Tyler Baze, 12-1; and Mokat, Drayden Van Dyke, 6-1. CLOSING ‘BEST GAME’ FOR KERI BELLE IN SATURDAY’S FRANKELJohn Shirreffs expects Keri Belle to return to her best style when she runs in Saturday’s Grade III Robert J. Frankel Stakes scheduled for 1 1/8 miles on turf.A six-year-old daughter of the Bobby Frankel-trained Empire Maker, Keri Belle prompted the pace in the Grade II Yellow Ribbon Handicap at Del Mar last July, but otherwise has shown her best form stalking or coming from well off the pace.“She’s a closer,” Shirreffs said. “That’s her best game. When she was on the pace in the Yellow Ribbon, there wasn’t much speed in the race.”Owned and bred by Jerry and Ann Moss of Zenyatta fame, Keri Belle won the Grade III Megahertz by a nose at a mile on turf almost a year ago, on Jan. 16, 2016, but usually earns a piece of the purse with a 4-3-2 record from 19 starts.Shirreffs had the utmost respect for Frankel, who died in 2009.“My best remembrance of Mr. Frankel,” Shirreffs said, “was his absolute care of his horses. He’s a guy who really cared about their well being. That always stood out, to me.“When I would see him at the trainers’ stand at Hollywood Park, it was intimidating for me to approach him. It was like going to Mt. Olympus.”The Frankel, race four of nine: Keri Belle, Nelson Arroyo Jr., 6-1 Frenzified, Santiago Gonzalez, 6-1; Arles, Joel Rosario, 9-5; Pretty Girl, Drayden Van Dyke, 5-1; Ryans Charm, Rafael Bejarano, 4-1; Goodyearforroses, Corey Nakatani, 6-1; and Into The Mystic, Flavien Prat, 6-1. Sweet Charity was scratched. FINISH LINES: With no one hitting the Pick Six the first two days of the meet, a two-day carryover into Friday stands at a whopping $361,436. The Single Ticket Pick Six Jackpot carryover is $77,450. The total Pick Six pool today is expected to near $1,500,000 . . . Tony Matos, agent for Martin Garcia, will also represent Santiago Gonzalez effective with the new condition book due out next Wednesday . . . Rafael Bejarano has been suspended three days (Jan. 2, 6 and 7) for causing interference on Dabster, resulting in a disqualification from first to fourth in Monday’s third race . . .

Rescuing Theories from the Evidence

Rescuing Theories from the Evidence

first_imgIf you believed what scientists were saying 5, 10, or 20 years ago about the march of evolution through time, be prepared to reset your clocks or think outside the box.  Things didn’t happen that way, some recent stories claim.  Documentaries based on the old stories may need to be scrapped.  But since we trusted the leading scientists then, can we believe what they are telling us now?  This set proceeds from molecules to man, looking at evolutionary theories in four different branches of science:Cosmology: Imaging cosmic ghosts:  Science Daily reported the “Most Distant Galaxy Candidate Yet Seen: Hubble Sees Farther Back in Time Than Ever Before.”  The new (temporary) record-holder is said to be 13.2 billion light-years away, 150 light-years beyond the previous record-holder.  According to the standard cosmological timeline, it was shining only 450 million years after the big bang.  A co-author of the paper in Nature announcing the find said, “We are thrilled to have discovered this galaxy, but we’re equally surprised to have found only one.”  What does that mean?  “This tells us that the universe was changing very rapidly in early times.”  But if they did not predict the surprising finding, is it legitimate to alter the theory to keep it from being falsified?  The astronomer remarked, “This is an astonishing increase in such a short period, happening in just 1% of the age of the universe.”    This galaxy has a redshift of z=10, but redshifts of 15 or higher are theoretically possible.  In regions beyond this galaxy, theory predicts earlier stars were made of pure hydrogen – so-called Population III stars – before heavy elements had been cooked inside the first generation stars, because only hydrogen and helium atoms emerged from the particle soup of the big bang.  (Population III stars have never been observed.)  “Will we ever glimpse the universe’s first stars?” New Scientist asked.  A probing question; certainly; the answer is that even with the next-generation James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) the first stars may be undetectable: “The earliest galaxies may be too distant and dim to see with JWST.”  Since science is supposed to be founded on evidence, a follow-up question might be: then how do we know the theoretical entities ever existed?  For all we know, the oldest observable stars are the oldest stars.    Dating stars and galaxies assumes we understand time and clocks.  Space.com rattled reader’s imaginations with the headline, “For Fully Mature Black Holes, Time Stands Still.”  How old, then, is a black hole?  The answer may depend entirely on your observing platform.  Whatever the answer might be, physicists can’t even approach the question: “It is really beyond the physics we know,” Juan Antonio Valiente Kroon [mathematician at Queen Mary, University of London] admitted.  “To understand what happens inside a black hole, we need to invent new physics.”  But if man invents physics, how does he know when he has the ultimate physics?  Newton thought he had it; Einstein thought he had it….Planetary Science: What to do with the body that won’t die:  “Geophysicists expected this little world to be a lump of ice, cold, dead, and uninteresting,” said Dennis Matson of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and former project scientist of the Cassini mission.  “Boy, were we surprised!”  He added, later, “This discovery resets our clocks!” in a press release on PhysOrg.  Nevertheless, the astronomers are convinced that this little moon is 4.5 billion years old.  Could it really have been active that long?    There are several ways to rescue this theory in crisis.  One is to play with models.  The Cassini scientists did find salt in the plume particles.  A new model suggests the existence of a fizzy ocean under the icy crust: “The model he and his colleagues propose suggests that gasses dissolved in water deep below the surface form bubbles,” the article explained, contradicting conclusions by Nimmo and Roberts in 2008 (03/25/2008).  Another technique is analogy: “Since the density of the resulting ‘sparkling water’ is less than that of the ice, the liquid ascends quickly up through the ice to the surface.”  Who wouldn’t be tempted by visions of sparkling soda to be attracted to such a model?    We still, however, haven’t heard how Enceladus could be serving sparkling soda for 4.5 billion years.  Larry Esposito recognized this: “Where’s the heat coming from on this tiny body?” he wondered.  So the next strategy is to make contributions: “We think tidal heating could be contributing.”  Unfortunately, the contribution does not appear to be anywhere near sufficient to pay the heating bill (see 08/04/2007, 03/13/2007).    When all else fails, there’s distraction: “It’s clear now that, whatever is producing the heat, Enceladus meets many requirements for life,” Esposito continued (cf. 03/26/2008).  “Whatever” has turned the reader’s attention toward something more sexy.  The brief excursion into astrobiology was followed by the admission, “No one knows for sure what’s going on under the ice, but it seems this little moon has quite a story to tell: erupting jets, an underground ocean, the possibility for life.”    A final point of agreement: “And they thought this place was dull.”  True; watching a theory in crisis being rescued is anything but dull.Paleontology: Twiddling dinosaur extinction:  “University of Alberta researchers determined that a fossilized dinosaur bone found in New Mexico confounds the long established paradigm that the age of dinosaurs ended between 65.5 and 66 million years ago.”  Sounds like trouble.  What happened?  According to Science Daily, a hadrosaur bone was dated at 64.8 million years old.  That seems old, but not old enough.  “That means this particular plant eater was alive about 700,000 years after the mass extinction event many paleontologists believe wiped all non-avian dinosaurs off the face of earth, forever.”  (Avian dinosaurs are, in current taxonomic parlance, the birds.)    The good news was that uranium-lead dating appeared to confirm the general time period for the strata in which the femur was embedded.  The bad news was this problem of dinosaurs surviving a wipeout.  Believers in the dinosaur dating story may have not been aware of these problems stated in the article:Currently, paleontologists date dinosaur fossils using a technique called relative chronology.  Where possible, a fossil’s age is estimated relative to the known depositional age of a layer of sediment in which it was found or constrained by the known depositional ages of layers above and below the fossil-bearing horizon.  However, obtaining accurate depositional ages for sedimentary rocks is very difficult and as a consequence the depositional age of most fossil horizons is poorly constrained.That paragraph went on to say that fossils can drift from their original positions in the sediments and give false impressions of their age (called reworking).  The U of Alberta researchers feel that their direct radiometric dating increased confidence in the timeline: “The researchers say their direct-dating method precludes the reworking process.”    Whether accurate or not, the date raises this problem of dinosaurs surviving a global extinction event at the K-T boundary (Cretaceous-Tertiary), whatever caused it.  “It’s commonly believed debris from a giant meteorite impact blocked out the Sun, causing extreme climate conditions and killing vegetation worldwide.”  Enough vegetation must have survived, though, to keep mammals, birds, worms, butterflies, and many more delicate creatures carrying on as if nothing happened.    The press release offered a theory-rescuing device: “it’s possible that in some areas the vegetation wasn’t wiped out and a number of the hadrosaur species survived.”  But if so, wouldn’t they have survived to the present, along with all the mammals and butterflies?  Does another ad hoc rescue device, a second extinction just for these hadrosaurs, have to be added?  Don’t reset the clock just yet.  The article ended, “Heaman and his colleagues believe if their new uranium-lead dating technique bears out on more fossil samples then the KT extinction paradigm and the end of the dinosaurs will have to be revised.”  Bottom line: stay tuned for the next paradigm shift.Paleoanthropology: Out of “Out of Africa”:  Read this MSNBC report on another paradigm shift: the story of early man’s alleged migration “Out of Africa” has been shaken up – again (12/29/2010, 10/28/2010, 06/03/2009 bullet 3, 11/24/2006, 09/01/2006, 01/24/2006).  Stone tools found in Arabia are said to be up to twice as old (100,000 to 125,000 years) as earlier claims about when humans were thought to have moved north out of their African Eden (60,000 years ago; 10/28/2010).    But several other curiosities are evident in the article: (a) the people (hominids? Neanderthals? modern humans?) who migrated would have had to build boats to cross the 0.5 to 2.5 mile channel at the south end of the Red Sea.  (b) The tools look “primitive,” in conflict with the technological needs of boat-building.  (b) Arabia was not what we know today: “Because of the different climate at the time, Arabia was moister and would have been a grassland with plenty of animals for prey.”  Let’s hope stone tools did not lead to anthropogenic global warming.  (c) No evidence was claimed of human occupation in Arabia from such an ancient time to the present.  (d) Would not humans intelligent enough to build boats have left numerous artifacts, and migrated around the world, in a period representing well over 10 times recorded history, in which their offspring reached the moon?    PhysOrg’s coverage claims that anatomically modern humans “had evolved in Africa about 200,000 years ago.”  If so, they sure stayed in one place for a long time.  Another theory-rescue device was evident in the PhysOrg article, claiming the migrants were simultaneously smart and stupid: “This toolkit includes relatively primitive hand-axes along with a variety of scrapers and perforators, and its contents imply that technological innovation was not necessary for early humans to migrate onto the Arabian Peninsula.”  But would not anatomically modern humans, or even Neanderthals, spurred on by wanderlust, have wandered to the ends of the earth long ago?  “Our findings should stimulate a re-evaluation of the means by which we modern humans became a global species.”  Have legs; will travel; have ships, will sail.    The upsetting find hinges on the validity of the optically stimulated fluorescence dating method used on the artifacts.  While the paleontologists are struggling to keep this discovery within the old paradigm – e.g., to decide if Neanderthals or modern humans made the tools, and what route they might have taken – it might be appropriate to ask how many theory-rescue devices are permitted before a scientific revolution is in order.  Meantime, someone should tell the team that Cretans appear to have been sailing much earlier (01/06/2011), maybe 700,000 years ago.  How did they get there out of Africa?According to Thomas Kuhn’s theory of scientific revolutions, paradigms permit the “guild” of scientists to work in harmony on common questions, using shared assumptions.  Anomalies accumulate until the paradigm can no longer accommodate the growing weight of anomalies.  Brave new scientists, usually of the younger generation, propose a new paradigm.  A scientific revolution occurs, and the new paradigm becomes the new comfort zone.  It is very difficult for guild scientists to see themselves within a paradigm.  To them, the paradigm is intuitively obvious.  It takes courage to ask new questions and think outside the box.  Sometimes it risks ridicule and ostracism.    We know of cases where the maverick eventually won against the consensus: e.g., J Harlan Bretz (04/30/2009, 07/25/2008), and Benoit Mandelbrot (11/12/2010).  Those cases might support the opinion that science is ultimately progressive and self-correcting, given enough time.  What we don’t know are the cases when the mavericks died in vain, asking questions that nobody else asked, seeking alternative explanations that might have proved fruitful had anyone listened.  For those sad cases, a whole civilization could persist down a wrong path till it collapses, never having asked the right questions.  Such a fate cannot be ruled out by the scientific method.  It’s not a question of science.  It’s a question of philosophy about science.This is an important entry on philosophy of science illustrated with recent, real-world examples.  The scientists involved are not being intentionally deceptive or lazy in their thinking.  Most scientists are hard working, highly intelligent, and personable.  There are just some things nobody could ever know.  There’s also a big difference between scientific discovery and scientific explanation.  With the scientists’ skill at observation, and with expensive equipment they helped design, they discovered the geysers of Enceladus.  Explaining how Enceladus could be active for 4.5 billion years is an entirely separate matter.  How could one know how old they are, or how long they’ve been erupting, without having watched them throughout their history?  Same for discovering a dinosaur bone in New Mexico, a human femur in Arabia, or a faint galaxy.  The “surprise factor” in the discovery should tell us something about the validity of the explanation given.    In their defense, it could be said that these scientists are doing the best they can with limited information, albeit with the advantage of expensive tools, specialized training, and a vast corpus of accumulated data.  It’s only human to speculate beyond the data and try to understand it.  Remember, though, that scientists are granted a high level of credibility in our culture.  They can proclaim things to the media that are rarely criticized or questioned.  Moreover, they hang out with their own, in somewhat insular environments, where criticisms from their peers are usually limited to questions within the paradigm, not outside of it.  They are not immune from social pressure to stay within their thought collectives; it could mean the difference between publishing and perishing.    Many science reporters have inherited a sense of awe for the opinions of the scientific priesthood (those with presumptive authority to mediate between Nature and the people).  They see their job not as critics, but as translators, taking the abstruse mutterings of the journals and delivering them in easily digested form to the masses.  Science reporters tend to be scientific realists, trained in the triumphalist tradition of science as a march of progress toward understanding reality.  But while discoveries may be cumulative, explanations are not necessarily so.  It appears many reporters are oblivious to the hard questions philosophers of science would pose.    Pay attention to the questions embedded in the text.  They are questions the snooze media never ask.  They can’t ask them, because they’re asleep.  As we all know from experience, dreams can seem very realistic.    Maybe we are all dreaming.  That’s an extreme view a solipsist might propose.  How would you know the one shaking you, shouting at you to wake up, is not part of the dream?  How do we know our senses give a true picture of the world?  After all, the world would seem very different to a deep-sea fish living in the dark punctuated by bioluminescent glows.  Such a fish, if it had a mind, might not even be cognizant of the watery medium in which lives, and define darkness as light.  Consider that we’ve only known of the vast field of electromagnetic radiation outside visible light for a tiny fraction of human history.  What else are we missing? (Consider Young’s Law, right sidebar.)    One cannot escape faith.  It takes faith to believe that our perceptions correspond to reality.  Assumptions are assumed; axioms are axiomatic; but without them, one cannot reason.  Only the Biblical world view provides the grounds for the faith that makes reason reasonable.  All scientists depend on that world view, intentionally or not.  Why?  One cannot evolve truth and reality from a materialistic world view made up of particles and forces without begging the question whether truth is true and reality is really real.  The laws of logic are concepts, not particles; to use them, one must assume that they are universal, timeless, and certain.  And one must believe that communication in the conceptual realm, to be intelligible, must derive from a communicating Mind that is universal, timeless, and certain.  One must, in short, be a theist.  A corollary is that atheists are de facto theists in spite of themselves.    Start with the Biblical world view – creation by a purposeful, designing intelligence – and the legitimacy (if not the reliability) of the quest for scientific knowledge logically follows.  Only then can one hope to ask the right questions.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

What’s Wrong With Our New Furnace?

What’s Wrong With Our New Furnace?

first_imgSaving Energy With Manual J and Manual DHow to Perform a Heat-Loss Calculation — Part 1How to Performa a Heat-Loss Calculation — Part 2All About Furnaces and Duct SystemsResidential CommissioningOut With The Old, In With The NewWhen Do I Need to Perform a Load Calculation?We Are the 99% — AND the 1%How to Use Climate Consultant 4 That process, he writes, should begin with Manual J and Manual D calculations to make sure the furnace is matched to the heating loads in the house, and that the ductwork is designed correctly. Following installation, the system should be commissioned to make sure it operates as intended.“There is a good chance that your contractor never performed steps one, two, or three, unfortunately,” Holladay says. “You should start by asking your contractor about these three steps. You may need to hire a home performance contractor to check your system if (as I suspect) your contractor doesn’t understand the three steps I listed.”Melichar suspects that Holladay has a point.“I wouldn’t be surprised if your suspicions about our contractor not completing those steps are right,” he says. “My conversation with the furnace installer hired by our contractor was limited to, ‘How big should it be? 60K BTU? 66K BTU?’ He said ’60.’ We were responsible for shopping for it. The contractor made a suggestion of a single-stage, single-speed blower system even though we stated we wanted the opposite, so I’m not sure how familiar they are with improved technologies.” RELATED ARTICLES Did the installer do his homework?GBA senior editor Martin Holladay’s first question is whether the heating contractor has taken all the necessary steps to ensure the furnace was specified and installed properly. Your new furnace is just plain too bigTo Dana Dorsett, the problem is more fundamental: The furnace is way too big for Melichar’s house.A typical house of that size framed with 2x4s, and one with clear glass double-pane windows or storm windows installed over single-pane windows, should show a heating load of 22,000 to 28,000 Btu/hour with an outdoor temperature of 0°F and the thermostat set at 68°F, Dorsett says. In a house with 2×6 framed walls insulated to R-20, the heating load would likely drop to between 19,000 and 24,000 Btu/hour, he adds.“So, is a 60,000 Btu/hr two-stage the optimal furnace for your house?” he asks. “I seriously doubt it.”“Odds are pretty good that even at it’s lowest firing rate the output is probably more than 3x oversized for your actual 99% heat load,” Dorsett continues. “A reasonably tight and insulated 2×4 house at 30°F would have a heat load of maybe 15,000 Btu/hr, 20,000 Btu/hr if it’s all single-panes with no storms — and even an uninsulated brick house would typically come in well under 40,000 But/hr.”If Melichar has access to records for fuel use, he can check the heating load at the actual outside design temperature (as established by ACCA’s Manual J Residential Load Calculation) based on heating degree-day data.In an exchange with Alan B, Dorsett’s defends the process by which he estimates Melichar’s heating loads, adding the new Goodman furnace could be as much as 10 times too big for the 500-square-foot zone, and as much as six times too big for the 1,000-square-foot part of the house, even when it’s burning on low.Even in cases where heat-load calculations have been performed, a variety of factors can throw them off, Dorsett says, including assumptions about R-values, air infiltration, and the effects of plug loads.“Seems there is not sufficient enforcement of California Title 24, which [if I remember correctly] requires Manual J heating and cooling load calculations even on replacement equipment, and may even require duct leakage testing and remediation (though that might only be for new construction),” Dorsett says. Here are some tweaks you can makeJon R suggests that the specifications for the furnace Melichar has installed don’t show much of a difference between high and low stage. But, he adds, there is an adjustment for air flow that would reduce the “high winds” the system seems to be producing now.“Also make sure that the thermostat supports two stages,” he adds. “Adjust zone dampers so that they never close to less than two-thirds.”“That’s interesting about the dampers not being closed more than two-thirds,” Melichar replies. “It makes sense to me and seems a route to consider given that we are expecting the furnace to sometimes heat the whole 1,500 square feet, most often the 1050-square-foot upstairs and sometimes only the 500-square-foot downstairs.“As you probably suspect, when the furnace is only heating the lower 500-square-foot zone, it is loud and fast!” he continues. “Reducing that cfm by leaving the upstairs damper upstairs makes sense.”Reid Baldwin adds that a zone controller, a device installed between the thermostats and the furnace, may be to blame.“Even if you have two-stage thermostats and a two-stage furnace, the zone controller may only be capable of single-stage logic,” Baldwin says. “When you use a single-stage controller with a two-stage furnace, the furnace is usually programmed to run on low stage for about 12 minutes and then to switch to high stage until the heat call ends. The furnace has no idea how many zones it is feeding. If you have a two-stage zone controller, it would have more sophisticated logic, like using low stage when only one zone is calling for heat and high stage when both are.” Another heating optionIf Melichar were to start over, Dorsett thinks a better approach, given the heating loads, would be to produce hot water with a condensing tank-style water heater and distribute the heat via a one-ton hydronic coil air handler, such as the Firstco 4CW.The Firstco is capable of delivering 13,700 Btu/hour with 120°F water and a pumping rate of 2 gallons per minute, and 19,200 Btu/hour with 140°F water.“That would deliver long comfortable low-cfm flow cycles,” Dorsett says. “The max flow on the Firstco 4CW is 400 cfm, which is lower than the lowest heating cfm setting on the Goodman GMVC960603BN (600 cfm, set to minus 10%.)“If air conditioning is a ‘must have,’” he adds, “doing the heating and cooling with minisplits might make more sense. But cooling loads are low enough on that side of the bay that most houses that size do just fine with a half-ton window-shaker for cooling.” John Melichar has upgraded the furnace in his two-level San Francisco home, one of several improvements that should have made the house more comfortable as well as more energy-efficient. The new furnace has the capacity recommended by his heating contractor, but so far the house seems less comfortable, not more comfortable.In a post at GBA’s Q&A forum, Melichar explains his concerns:“Our contractor told us to buy a 60K Btu/h furnace; we opted for 96% AFUE with two-stage variable blower — the Goodman GMVC960603BN.“We get high winds from the vents,” Melichar continues. “We thought that the variable blower and two stages meant that the unit would operate on a low flame and low fan (cubic feet per minute) level but that doesn’t seem to be the case. The furnace starts out slow then ramps up to gale storm.”These problems prompt Melichar to ask whether the furnace has been installed incorrectly. Maybe the contractor has recommended a furnace that’s too big for the house. Can some adjustments be made to improve its performance?Further complicating Melichar’s situation is a language barrier with the contractors who installed the furnace: He’s able to speak with only one of them.That’s the backdrop for this Q&A Spotlight. Our expert’s opinionGBA technical director Peter Yost added these thoughts:I am going to build on Dana Dorsett’s comments on choosing another heating option. I think the series of images below from the free download software Climate Consultant is worth 1,000 words on what I feel is the completely misguided type of space conditioning system that was elected for this project. (For more information on Climate Consultant, see “How to Use Climate Consultant 4.”)To follow along, simply download Climate Consultant 6, enter the California zip code for John Melichar (94132) and use the drop-down list of charts. And note that the Climate Consultant starting page summary states, “Climate Consultant seeks to translate outdoor conditions into indoor comfort…”California Climate Zone 3 has about six months of low-grade space heating and then six months with just about zero active space conditioning need. As Dana explains and Climate Consultant 6 reinforces, it’s hard for forced-air systems to be as effective as an integrated package of other design and mechanical strategies.I think the oversizing and misapplication of the type of system means John should go after the HVAC contractor for such gross errors and then move, if he can, to a hydronic system (or hydro-air system) that allows him easily and effectively to combine his space heating and domestic hot water loads.last_img read more
