Duro IkhazuagbeControversy appears to be brewing on when the Super Eagles will play their first game of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers with Zambia as both CAF and FIFA have conflicting dates for the clash against the Chipolopolo in Ndola.As at 9pm last night, FIFA listed the game to be played on October 3 on its official web page while CAF listed the same game for October 9, six clear days from the date the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has on its schedule for the first match in the Russia 2018 qualifiers.The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) gave credence to the date on CAF schedule when it announced yesterday that the Chipolopolo versus Super Eagles game is going to hold in Ndola on October 9. All attempt to get NFF officials speak on the game proved abortive as both Spokesman of the federation, Ademola Olajire and the Chairman of the Technical Committee, Chris Green did not return calls to their mobile telephones. The kick-off time on CAF site is 2.30pm Zambian time.Sources in Zambia insisted last night that the new FAZ administration has not been proactive by the choice of this date as it will not allow them to fit in a warm-up game during the week-long FIFA friendly window to prepare for the trip to Cameroon in November in continuation of the World Cup qualifying series.Nigeria and Zambia last met at the 2013 AFCON in South Africa and it ended in a 1-1 draw in Nelspruit.It was further gathered that following the dismissal of the petition against the recent presidential elections in Zambia, the 2012 AFCON champions are expected to soon name a permanent coach.Zesco United coach George Lwandamina, has been in temporary charge of the Chipolopolo.Meanwhile, Nigeria’s new manager, Gernot Rohr, believes Super Eagles will qualify for the World Cup because his charges are now super “motivated” after penultimate weekend’s victory over Tanzania in dead rubber AFCON 2017 qualifier.“In our group, every team can go to the World Cup because there are four top teams in the group. However, the most motivated team in the group is our team (Super Eagles). I experienced that motivation last week (against Tanzania). We have big, quality players and I am happy with my first victory in-charge of Nigeria,” stressed the Franco-German coach.The 63-year-old gaffer explained that one of his earliest impressions of the Super Eagles was a side glaringly short on confidence.“This team was very low on confidence because they failed to qualify for the 2017 AFCON.“The players need confidence and the confidence will come when they begin to win games.“But first, we need a good defence to be stable and to attack better,” he said.Rohr’s attention is now on Nigeria’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign which will begin in October with the trip to Zambia.Nigeria is listed to battle Zambia, Cameroun and Algeria in Group B of qualifying round.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

Powered by Firework When ‘Mr. Dependable’ Rahul Dravid decided to hang up his shoes from international cricket back in 2012, the Indian dressing room was deeply concerned on how to fill the void left by the legendary batsman. But in came Cheteshwar Pujara and boy did he relieve the selectors and fans alike! The Saurashtra batsman has a solid technique, is a fantastic grafter, and while batting at No.3 he often plays the role of the anchor – something which reminds us of Dravid in his prime. So naturally, in a recent interview when asked about the comparisons between him and ‘The Wall’, Pujara respectfully denied while adding that he still has “a lot of things to achieve.”Advertisement Picture Credit: Cricket Country“It is a big honour for me but it’s not the right comparison because I still have a lot of things to achieve in my life and someone like Rahul Bhai who has played all the formats, scored more than 10,000 runs in Tests and ODIs, he’s played T20 format as well. So I still have a lot of achieving and I’m still learning. I’m at an age where I have taken a lot of guidance from him, luckily he’s always available,” Pujara said.Advertisement He then revealed how Dravid helped him during his transition from a first-class cricketer to a international batsman.“I first met him at a Ranji game and he was back then captaining the Indian team. They had visited Rajkot, when I first spoke to him he was very approachable. At that time I hadn’t played any international matches. How to transition from Ranji to the international level, that was my first conversation with him. When I got into the team I spoke to him about what should I do, he had many thoughts on how to approach international cricket.”“After that, once he retired and mentoring young kids, he was coach of India A team and I was going through a tough time, he gave me many advices. He’s such a positive person. He told me that you have that talent, you need to believe in yourself, your opportunities will come and ultimately it did come.”“Also when we are talking about the technical aspect of this game, he knows what he’s talking about. He has told me not to make a lot of changes in my game, I just have to fine-tune a few things” he concluded.

Powered by Firework The pandemic of COVID-19 coronavirus may have caused major hampering in the world of sports and the sportspersons, but veteran Indian table tennis star Sharath Kamal is on a different plane. The nine times Senior National Champion not only fought through the risk of a positive infection from the virus, but also produced a spectacular performance at the ITTF Challenger Plus Oman Open. Kamal remarkably lifted the title on Sunday, putting an end to his decade long wait to clinch a tour trophy at a time where the world is focused on preventive measures of suspending sporting events.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ITTF/TwitterAt the final clash in Muscat, Sharath Kamal made all the right moves against the top seeded Marcos Freitas of Portugal, winning four games against losing two.Coming from a 6-11 loss in the first game, Kamal produced three back to back game wins of 11-8, 12-10, 11-9. Freitas, the world no. 26 got back in the match with winning the fifth game 3-11, but the final call was for the 37 year old Indian paddler who secured the sixth game 17-15, and lifted his first ITTF title in the last 10 years.Advertisement Kamal’s last ITTF trophy came all the way back in 2010 at the Egypt Open final. Since then, he was able to reach the semi finals of the 2011 Morocco Open and 2017 India Open, but was far off from clinching the title.“I am tired but I cannot stop smiling,” Kamal expressed his joy after his extraordinary feat. In the post match interview with Times of India, the player expressed on his comeback in the second game, after Freitas made the right calls in the first.Advertisement “I was not connecting my shots perfectly. But I knew where I had to make the amends. I just had to get into the rhythm,” Kamal told reporters.The 31 year old Portuguese powered back in the fifth game, and even took the lead in the sixth and final game of the match.He continued: “He is a very seasoned player but even I have been in a great run of form. These matches can generally slip out any time and at 8-6, I felt he was taking control away.”However, Kamal had the right amount of fight left him in to come victorious. “But once I levelled (at 10-10), I fought to grab it,” the paddler concluded.The Oman Open will be ITTF’s final tour in the coming weeks, after all the ensuing tours were postponed in the wake of the virus outbreak.Also read-10 year old Table Tennis prodigy Hansini to represent India in SwedenR Ashwin unhappy with Chennai people regarding anti-Coronavirus efforts!

Nelson Selects all smiles after bringing home the bronze medal at BC Soccer U14 Girl’s Provincial B Cup
The goalie had been recently replaced after the starter was injured late in the contest.“Two of our players hit the ball at the same time,” Borhi explained. “We’re not really sure which player scored.”Nelson opened the tournament losing 3-0 to Kelowna.The Okanagan squad scored early in the contest as the Selects looked to get accustomed to provincial play.Nelson then tied Surrey United Infinity 3-3 in a high scoring contest Friday to get some points in the standings.Faced with a chance to advance to the medal round with a win, Nelson doubled Kootenay South 4-2 Saturday.“We seem to get better as the tournament progressed,” Borhi said.“We scored seven goals in the tournament, so we knew we could score,”“The key for us was not giving up any early goals today and the defence playing safe,” he added.Nelson also won the Fair Play award for most sportsmanlike team in the U14 Girl’s Division.“Winning that award was very nice, kind of capped off the tournament,” Borhi said.Winning the Gold Medal is always the ultimate goal for teams.However, on this day winning Bronze was just as good, if not better for the Nelson U14 Selects. Sometimes winning bronze is just as good, if not better, than capturing gold.The Nelson Selects scored in the final minute of the game to edge Powell River Predators 1-0 in the Bronze Medal Match of the BC Soccer U14 Girl’s Provincial B Cup Sunday at the Lakeside Soccer Pitch.“This is really exciting especially score the winning goal in the last seconds of the game,” said Nelson coach Rob Borhi.“We were under pressure for a lot of the game but our defence played well under pressure. There was no time remaining in the game but the ref allowed the corner and we were able to score on it, which was great.”The U14 Girl’s Division is one of three titles up for grab in Nelson during the BC Soccer Provincial B Cup.Nelson hosted the U13, U14 and U15 Girl’s Divisions while 100 Mile House hosted the boy’s categories.The U16 to U18 Divisions, for both boy’s and girls, were held in Penticton.Sophie Borhi took the corner, placing a high cross into the penalty area.Two Selects converged in the ball — Michaela Anderson and Reece Hunt — lofting a high shot over the outstretched hands of the Powell River keeper.
This is a code-built house in Atlanta, so they used R-13 insulation in the walls. They’re putting half inch drywall on the interior, half inch OSB on the exterior with brick and stone cladding. My estimates of the various R-values are:Insulation: R-13Center-of-cavity: R-15Clear-wall: R-14Whole-wall: R-10.5Overall: R-7.3I got the center-of-cavity R-value by adding the R-values of the layers. I calculated a framing factor (ratio of framing to insulated cavity area) of about 13% using 9-foot ceilings to find the clear-wall R-value. I estimated a framing factor of about 30% to find the whole-wall R-value. (The difference between those two framing factors is that the clear wall framing factor includes only studs and plates whereas the whole wall framing factor includes studs, plates, corners, T-walls, and headers.)And I used a U-factor of 0.33 (R-3) for the windows and doors to find the overall R-value.A standard home has a framing factor of about 23%, but this home has a lot of corners, intersections, and openings. If I use the 23% framing factor, the whole-wall R-value is 11.8.The thing to remember here is that the R-value in your walls, floors, and ceilings isn’t the same as the R-value of the insulation you put in them. Oh, and one more thing: The R-value you calculate according to the definitions above isn’t a static number. It changes with temperature and other factors.

R-value estimation at a point in the wall’s cross-sectional R-value containing the most insulation.Clear-wall R-value. R-value estimation for the exterior wall area containing only insulation and necessary framing materials for a clear section with no fenestration, corners, or connections between other envelope elements such as roofs, foundations, and other walls.Whole-wall R-value. R-value estimation for the whole opaque wall including the thermal performance of not only the “clear wall” area, with insulation and structural elements, but also typical envelope interface details, including wall/wall (corners), wall /roof, wall/floor, wall/door, and wall/window connections.The first one doesn’t include any thermal bridging effects, so it’s not a good one to use when comparing buildings. Clear-wall R-value is better, but it doesn’t include enough of the thermal bridging since it ignores corners, T-walls, and other important thermal bridges.But none of those definitions above include the effects of the windows and doors. If you add those to the mix, you get the overall R-value.Whole-wall R-value is really what you want to know most of the time. In new home construction, complex building enclosures rule the market. Look at all the corners, roof-wall intersections, and other complexities in the photo below. At least on the front of this house, there’s not a whole lot of clear wall there. RELATED ARTICLESUnderstanding R-ValueA Bold Attempt to Slay R-ValueWhat is Thermal Bridging?Thermal BridgingThe Thermal Bridge to NowhereIn Cold Climates, R-5 Foam Beats R-6 We talk about R-value all the time. “I’ve got an R-19 wall,” or “Code requires R-38 in my ceiling.” But what are those numbers? As it turns out, when we talk about R-value we usually give the R-value of the insulation material itself. That’s the case with both of those statements above. But what’s the real R-value of the wall or the ceiling? Insulation makes up only a part of each. There’s also wood and drywall and sheathing and cladding and…If we use R-value to describe only the insulating properties of the insulation we install, we neglect the insulation value of the other layers in a building assembly. In a wall, those layers include drywall, sheathing, cladding, and air films. They add to total R-value of a given pathway (series heat flow).Similarly, using only the insulation’s R-value ignores the effects of thermal bridging. Wood has a lower R-value than insulation, so including it reduces the overall R-value of a wall. And then, if you want to factor that thermal bridging in, how do you do it?As it turns out, building scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) worked on this back in the 1990s. Jan Kosny and Jeffrey E. Christian wrote a paper in 1995 titled Whole Wall Thermal Performance and introduced three new types of R-value. Here are the names and definitions, straight from their paper:
