2009 Decathlon Contender Is a House without a Home

first_imgAmong the toughest challenges faced by the academic teams participating in the Solar Decathlon is to build a house that not only performs well during the competition but is marketable after the competition. Basically, these teams are research-and-development juggernauts whose products – energy efficient homes of 800 sq. ft. or less that can be dissembled, transported, and reassembled – ideally will attract buyers after they leave the competition site on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.The University of Minnesota’s Solar Decathlon entry – which earned fifth place out of 20 in the 2009 competition, the school’s first Decathlon contest – did almost everything it was intended to do, except find a buyer. Called ICON Solar House, the 550-sq.-ft. structure, with its slightly shifted, gabled roofline, echoes the architectural vocabulary of many homes in Minnesota. Most of the roof is covered with solar panels, and the house features a well-insulated shell, with R-50 exterior walls and an R-70 roof. It is, basically, a very nicely realized prototype that is now sitting across the street from the Bell Museum of Natural History in Minneapolis as part of a museum exhibit called “Sustainable Shelter,” a building technology showcase on display through May 15.Bells, whistles, but a high priceInclusion in the Bell exhibit, the project’s principals and supporters hope, will stimulate buyer interest in the house, which cost $1 million to develop and build. A recent Minnesota Public Radio story on the tribulations of the ICON sales effort notes that, apart from design and development expenses, about $550,000 of materials and labor has gone into the house, which was put up for auction some time ago with a $200,000 minimum bid.Even though a few prospective buyers expressed interest in the house, a few deal killers intervened, the main ones being cost and inconvenience. Even if a bid of, say, $200,000 (i.e., a base price of about $365 per square foot, including a $20,000 moving credit) had been accepted, the buyer would have to pay for a least a portion of ICON’s transport and reassembly, in addition to land costs, site preparation, permits, and other expenses. In the current housing market, it’s a lot of money for a very small albeit high-performing building.ICON project managers, however, say that the home’s inclusion in the “Sustainable Shelter” exhibit could significantly boost its sales prospects. When the house went up for bid, the MPR story points out, ICON’s five principal pieces were still in storage in a university warehouse, leaving prospective bidders to tour the house virtually, via small models and videos. Project manager Ann Johnson told MPR that while the virtual tours may be informative, they are still too abstract for people trying to understand what it’s really like to occupy the building and see how it operates.“People need that physicality,” Johnson said, “to get the whole experience.”last_img read more

Speed Ramp with Premiere Pro Instead of After Effects

first_imgDiscover a quick technique for giving your video footage a speed ramp in Adobe Premiere Pro.For the uninitiated, let’s get the basics out of the way first: speed ramping is the process of progressively speeding up or slowing down the frame rate in your video footage.  This process can also sometimes just be called ‘ramping’. More often than not video editors will usually drop the footage in After Effects and complete the ramping process there. However Tunnelvizion has provided us with a great video tutorial on how to effectively create a speed ramp in Adobe Premiere Pro. Check it out:Now, lets explore some speed ramping examples from feature films. First up is The Matrix, one of the most famous speed ramping scenes in film history:In 2006, the film 300 took speed ramping to a whole new level. Here is the incredible slo-motion battle sequence:In 2011 we watched as Robert Downey Jr. fought Professor Moriarty in his mind. The use of speed ramping in this scene is well suited to the story: Speed ramping is now used in a slew of film projects, but unfortunately it’s often without motivation. If you use this technique in your own video projects be sure that it adds to the narrative of the story and is not used only as a gimmicky effect!last_img read more

Main supply line of drugs like ‘Chitta’ broken: Pb Minister

first_imgChandigarh, Jul 8 (PTI) Punjab Cabinet Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa today claimed that the main supply line of drugs like ‘Chitta’ had been broken and only petty peddlers, who were also being dealt with, were active now. Every village that turns drug free would get a grant of Rs 5 lakh to purchase gym and sports goods for the youth, he declared. The panchayats and rural development minister, who is the legislator from Fatehgarh Churian assembly seat in the border district of Gurdaspur, appealed to his constituents and others to join hands to make the constituency, the first drug-free constituency in Punjab. “Today, I want to share my thoughts with you on a very sensitive and highly urgent matter. This is about the menace of drugs that is dominating the social media dialogue these days. Several highly concerned people have expressed their apprehension and I believe their worry is justified,” Bajwa said in a statement. This menace must be eradicated from its roots forever, he said adding that blame game was of no use. “Who is responsible for it? Where is it rooted? Rather than indulging in this blame game, we have to firmly join hands to root it out,” Bajwa said in the statement issued through newspaper advertisements today. The minister claimed the main supply line of drugs or “Chitta” had been broken. “With strong will power of Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and persistent efforts of his government, the main supply line of drugs like ‘Chitta’ has been broken. Only petty peddlers are active now in supplying small quantity the ‘poison’ which also would be eradicated soon,” he said.advertisement The 16-month old Congress government in Punjab is in a spot after a spate of deaths, allegedly due to drug overdose. Wary of a public backlash if it fails to tackle the menace ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the state Cabinet recently recommended to the Centre to allow death penalty for drug peddlers and smugglers, a move some activists dubbed a “knee-jerk” reaction. The state government also announced mandatory dope tests for all government employees. Minister Bajwa too had earlier said he was in favour of a mandatory dope test for candidates contesting the forthcoming panchayat polls in the state. Bajwa today appealed to every panchayat to keep a watch and inform if they get information about addicts or suppliers. Please inform me or the police if you get any information, he said. “Every village that turns drug free would get a grant of Rs 5 lakh to purchase gym and sports goods for the youth. Bajwa also urged the parents to keep a watch on the activities of their children and take appropriate action if they find anything suspicious. “We must focus on our sons the way we are always concerned about the safety, dignity and honour of our daughters. We become apprehensive in case the daughter is late even by five minutes and start making queries. However, we turn careless so far as boys are concerned. We should pay the same attention to sons too,” he said. We should make special efforts to connect our sons to our rich religious, social and historical heritage, he said. He said that the intensification of the anti-drug campaign should start from our Fatehgarh Churian constituency. “I have made commitment to this effect in the cabinet on the basis of the confidence we have in each other to completely eradicate this problem of drugs in Fatehgarh Churian,” he said. Let us join hands to make Fatehgarh Churian, the first drug-free constituency in Punjab, he added. PTI SUN VSD ADSADSlast_img read more
