Arsenal need to build confidence, says Emery

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal manager Unai Emery © IKIMAGES/AFP/File / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 26 – Arsenal boss Unai Emery is seeking to rebuild the confidence of his players after consecutive defeats dealt a severe blow to their hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top four.The Gunners suffered a surprise 3-2 home loss to Crystal Palace last weekend before a 3-1 reverse at Wolves on Wednesday. The results leave Arsenal fifth in the table, a point behind London rivals Chelsea in the final Champions League qualification spot.Another tricky trip lies ahead with a game at Leicester on Sunday and Emery conceded he has had to lift his squad before heading to the King Power Stadium.“The first target is to recover our confidence,” Emery said at his pre-match press conference on Friday.“We can build on this confidence each minute, each hour, each day, each week — and above all we’re training and we’re looking for a big performance for the three points.”Arsenal, who next week play Valencia in the Europa League semi-finals, have been impressive at home this season but their away form has generally been poor.“If we think negatively with the last two matches, we can’t think positively about the (away) games we won against Napoli and Watford,” said Emery.“Each match is a new history, a new test. We’re being positive, working, recovering the confidence in our players and in our work.“We need to be ready and look forward to playing the next match.”After the Leicester game, Arsenal host Brighton before finishing the season with an away trip to Burnley on May 12 as they seek to qualify for the Champions League after a two-year absence from the competition.Top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be back for the visit to Leicester after missing the Wolves game with a sinus issue.“He trained today and if he can train tomorrow, I think we can think he’s ready for Sunday,” said Emery.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Good news for Liverpool and Man City? Wonderkid has NOT agreed Dortmund deal

first_img Ousmane Dembele in action for Rennes Liverpool and Manchester City target Ousmane Dembele has not agreed to join Borussia Dortmund.Reports had claimed that the Rennes winger was set for a summer move to the German club after holding talks this week.Demebele has been in stunning form this season and his tally of 12 goals has attracted interest from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.The Premier League pair appeared to have missed out when it was reported that the 18-year-old would join Dortmund in the summer.But now Dembele’s agent, Badou Sambague, has rubbished talk that his client has agreed any move.“I deny categorically any agreement with Borussia Dortmund or whoever it might be,” Sambague told Foot Mercato.“Ousmane is finishing his season. If there is a lot of speculation about him, as with many players, it remains speculation.“The journalists are doing their job, everyone is doing their job.

first_imgJoe McHugh TD has complimented the staff of Letterkenny General Hospital for reducing by 61% the number of patients on trolleys at the Hospital in January 2013 when compared with January 2012.Deputy Joe McHughThe Fine Gael Deputy says that while he is aware of some instances of long waiting times in A&E which are not acceptable, the 61% reduction is a very significant improvement.The Letterkenny reduction is part of a 32% reduction recorded in numbers of patients on trolleys across the national hospital network, since the Fine Gael-Labour coalition government took office in early 2011. Deputy McHugh said “I compliment the staff of Letterkenny General Hospital for achieving this remarkable 61% reduction in the number of patients on trolleys at our hospital.“The commitment and resourcefulness of Hospital staff have substantially improved patient comfort and dignity over the past 12 months. I am aware of some instances of long waiting times for patients in A&E which are not acceptable, but there has been an overall improvement.“Minister for Health James Reilly is to be complimented for driving a series of national reforms that have delivered a 32% reduction in the numbers of patients on trolleys across the national hospital network since January 2011. Minister Reilly‚s Special Delivery Unit and the emphasis that he has placed on reducing average length-of-hospital-stay is delivering for patients. Here in Letterkenny length-of-stay was reduced from 8.6 days (ave) to 5.3 days (ave) in 2012. That is a very significant improvement” he said.He  complimented hospital management and staff for achieving these improvements at a time which is difficult for public sector workers. “Minister Reilly’s new efficiency-based system for allocating hospital budgets has seen a 7% increase in our hospital‚s budget for 2013. This additional funding will allow the hospital to expand and improve services, although it must be said that 2013 will not be a walk in the park for hospital management. Our hospital ran at a deficit last year.“I will continue to work with Letterkenny General Hospital, Donegal HSE Management and Minister for Health James Reilly TD, to protect and develop health services in our county during this time of economic difficulty. I compliment Hospital staff for this significant achievement.”61% FEWER PATIENTS ON TROLLEYS HIGHLIGHTS GOVERNMENT’S HEALTH REFORM – MCHUGH was last modified: February 11th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:deputy joe mchughLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more

Angels split Windy City unsatisfied

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week While many of the Angels believe umpire Doug Eddings lost his good sense with his non-strikeout call in Wednesday’s Game 2, of a more pressing concern is the disappearance of the Angels’ offense in the first two games. There should be some credit given to the Chicago White Sox pitching, but the Angels hitters have fallen into the same trap they found themselves in many times during the regular season. As a team, the Angels are hitting .190 (12 for 63) with three extra-base hits. Vladimir Guerrero is 0 for 8, Chone Figgins is 1 for 7, Garret Anderson is 1 for 8 and Bengie Molina is 1 for 7. Earning respect White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen called Molina the best catcher in baseball, which didn’t come as news to Scioscia. The Angels left Chicago with a split, giving them the home-field advantage with three games scheduled at Angel Stadium and two at U.S. Cellular Field. But after winning Game 1, a split wasn’t the goal. “You don’t go into a series thinking you want to win two out of three, or split,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “You go into every game and you pour your heart into it, and try to win them all. Going 2-0 or 1-1 or 0-2 … there’s no lead that’s safe until you get the last out.” Playing at home has been an advantage for the Angels in the playoffs. Since 1982, the Angels are 14-5 (.737) at home, the best winning percentage in the majors (minimum 10 games) during that span. Against the White Sox, the Angels are 39-15 at home since 1995. Bats quiet center_img “I’ve been saying that for a while,” Scioscia said. “He’s in an elite category of catchers with (Jason) Varitek, (Victor) Martinez, he’s a terrific player. Bengie bring a level of experience that matches his physical talent, which makes him a very good catcher.” — Joe Haakenson Almost an Angel Jon Garland will take the Angel Stadium mound today as the starting pitcher for the White Sox. If not for an unusual chain of events back in December 2001, Garland might have been taking the mound today wearing the red and white of the Angels. The Angels and White Sox had reportedly agreed to a trade in which Garland and outfielder Chris Singleton would come to Anaheim in exchange for Darin Erstad. Then-Angels team president Tony Tavares vetoed the deal. “It happens in baseball all the time in baseball these days, trades, moving around,” Garland said. “It happened to me in ’98 as a young kid getting traded to the White Sox (from the Cubs). It’s business. You’ve got to understand that. “If it would have happened, it would have happened, and I would have made the best of it.” Home field advantage That “Fear the Monkey’ battle cry at the Big A might work after all. The White Sox have a respectable 3-4 record at Angel Stadium in Guillen’s two seasons as a manager, including a four-game split this season. Nonetheless, the Sox speak of road games in Anaheim as a trying experience. “Most of the time we start (a West Coast road trip) in Oakland, the pitching staff in Oakland gives us problems and then we move to Anaheim and we carried the problem to here,” Guillen said. — Keven Chavez 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Afrika out, Dry in for Blitzbokke

first_img25 April 2014Versatile back Mark Richards has replaced Cecil Afrika in the Springbok Sevens squad for the penultimate HSBC Sevens World Series tournament next weekend in Glasgow, the South African Rugby Union (Saru) confirmed on Thursday.Afrika was not considered for the 12-man squad to contest the tournament in Scotland because he is still completing rehabilitation on a groin injury he suffered at the Hong Kong Sevens in Stellenbosch. Depending on his progress, he might be considered for selection should the need arise to call up a player for the London Sevens, which take place on 10 and 11 May.Richards last played for the Springbok Sevens during round one of the World Series at the Gold Coast in Australia.Good newsThere was also good news for the team. Chris Dry, an ever-present figure in the front row the past few seasons alongside veteran Frankie Horne and captain Kyle Brown, was cleared to play after initial fears that he might miss the last two tournaments because of a lower back injury.Dry was given the go-ahead being examined by three specialists and completing his functionality tests without discomfort.‘A quality player’Neil Powell, the Springbok Sevens coach, was happy with the preparation of his squad and especially the availability of Dry, saying in a statement: “Chris is a quality player and has shown great form for this season, so it’s a welcome bonus for us that he is available to play.”He added: “Mark [Richards] really put up his hand during our training camp of the past two weeks and deserves his chance. He has experience of playing at this level and is eager to grab his chance.”Hong Kong performanceSouth Africa suffered their first Cup quarterfinal exit of the season in Hong Kong against Australia after reaching at least the semi-finals of all the previous tournaments. Injury robbed the team of several players on the last day of that event, but they still managed to win the Plate Final against Wales.Prior to their Hong Kong Cup exit, the Springbok Sevens were in excellent form and appeared in five consecutive Cup Finals.

Installing a Concrete Slab the Right Way

first_img“Is the above the right layer structure or do we need to revise?” Bludesheim asks at GBA’s Q&A forum. “One thing we do not want to change is the concrete slab and radiant heat in it. So I’m basically interested in what should go below the slab at this point. We really don’t want to have to worry about ever touching that slab again!”Is the architect’s recommendation to include a layer of sand a good idea? And what other issues should Budesheim consider before the new slab goes in? Those are the topics for this Q&A Spotlight. Our expert’s opinionPeter Yost, GBA’s technical director, adds this:Unfortunately, there are a number of problems with the slab detail.Blotter sand: As others have clearly stated: lose this. This layer of sand originally was added as a moisture sink so the top and bottom of the concrete dried more evenly, reducing edge curl (see the Building Science Corporation article, “Concrete Floor Problems”). But it also was thought necessary because a wetter mix was easier to move around. A water-to-cement ratio of 0.5 or less is generally recommended, but this stiffer mix does not make the folks handling it as happy!Thickness of sub-slab insulation: In this climate, sub-slab insulation is more about thermal comfort than energy savings. However, for a heated slab, it’s a whole different story. The 2105 International Energy Conservation Code calls for adding R-5 beneath a heated slab in Climate Zone 3, but it’s silly to be redoing this slab and not incorporating at least R-10 worth of insulation.Slab edge insulation: This actually is more important than the under-slab insulation. Every GBA slab detail shows some sort of slab edge detail. Does this introduce any stability issues in terms of tying the grade beam to the slab, especially in San Francisco? Since this is a structural engineering question, I turned to Bruce King of the Ecological Building Network.King responded, “Here in the land of the dancing earth, we engineers tend to tie everything together, like slab edges to perimeter footings. But there’s nothing sacred about that. Especially for such small spaces, I doubt that it is all that important, and would weigh the large thermal needs (insulate the slab edge) over the modest seismic benefit of tying slab to footing. But again, there’s lots of context I don’t know [for this particular project] that might make me change my mind.”Finally, both as a builder (not long ago…) and consultant, I have found the “Type” system for the different grades of polystyrene insulation — expanded polystyrene (EPS) and extruded polystyrene (XPS) — confusing. It’s important that you know the Type of either EPS or XPS that you are specifying or buying. I have found this resource helpful. RELATED ARTICLES Where should the tubing be located?Budesheim is committed to a radiant-floor heating system, and the question now turns to exactly where in his proposed 5-inch-thick slab the tubing should be placed. He’s considering a product called Creatherm, EPS floor panels which include molded channels for PEX radiant floor tubing.Although the Creatherm panels look as if they’d work, Dorsett says, they place the tubing at the bottom of the slab rather than in the middle of the slab, and that’s going to make the heating system a little less responsive.“In practice that probably doesn’t matter much,” he says. “I have no idea how it’s priced, but it saves labor on the heating installation end. Sheets of smooth 2-inch-thick Type-II EPS under slabs typically runs 75-85 U.S. cents per square foot, installed; Type X (2-pound density) is more like 90 cents a square foot. Type-X is preferred by some radiant heating contractors for its better staple retention, which allows them to simply staple the tubing to the foam (again, at the bottom of the slab) rather than tie it to the metal reinforcing layer, which is more labor-intensive.”Tubing does not belong in the bottom of the slab, McGrath says.“Expansion joints are often the topic when this discussion takes place,” he says. “First, there are two types of slabs, those that are cracked and those that have not cracked yet. Nature of the beast. If it were not so, we would not need expansion joints. Expansion joints are just a place for the slab to crack at instead of wherever it wants due to conditions. These joints should have their location identified and tubing should dip below for 6 inches on either side or if they are to be saw-cut the slice needs not be more than a 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch deep.”David Meiland would probably not be voting in favor of panel products such as Creatherm, in part because there already is an easy solution to the problem of locating tubing in the slab.“Rip a 45-degree bevel on rigid insulation and install it against the perimeter walls with the bevel at the top,” Meiland says. “Install crushed rock without fines as your slab base, compacted very flat. Place rigid insulation over the rock and then your [vapor barrier] over the insulation. Install a mat of #3 rebar on 1 1/2-inch dobies. Tie the tubing to the top of the rebar. Pour a 4 1/2-inch slab. When you make your 1-inch-deep control cuts, you will not hit the tubing.” Get the sand out of the pictureAsk your architect to read the same articles you have, Holladay suggests, and notes, “The sand layer shouldn’t be there.”Although the sand layer is unnecessary, at least the architect has called for a 6-mil vapor barrier above the sand; the 6-mil poly prevents the moisture in the slab from migrating upwards, avoiding most of the problems associated with the sand layer.Kevin Zorski adds this: “The other problem with the sand is: what’s to prevent the sand from, over time, filling all the voids in the crushed rock layer, and creating possible cracks in your slab? I agree with Martin. Lose the sand!”Richard McGrath adds to the chorus. “Should it eventually get wet,” he writes, “it will actually hurt the performance. Water within six feet of a slab in contact with earth must be accounted for in the calculations.”OK, says Budesheim — no sand.center_img How much insulation should be used?But what about some of the other details, including the amount of insulation the architect is recommending?Holladay says that 1 inch of rigid foam isn’t enough under a heated slab, even in Climate Zone 3, where Budesheim’s house is located. Two inches is the minimum, he says, and more would be better.Dana Dorsett would rather see 3 inches of rigid foam under the slab, and there’s something else about the architect’s proposal that bugs him.“There are several issues with the detail I don’t like, not the least of which is the lack of thermal break between the slab and the grade beam foundation,” Dorsett says. “Not only does there need to be more than an inch of foam (2 inches [of] EPS would be the minimum for a heated slab, 3 inches better). Even with an unheated slab you’d want 1 inch at the slab edge for comfort, and maybe 1 inch sub-slab on the perimeter, but for a heated slab you’d want 2 inches (R-8.4) under the slab, and at least 1.5 inch (R-6.3) between the slab and the grade beam.“That ‘floats’ the slab mechanically as well as thermally,” Dorsett continues, “which probably makes it safer from a seismic/structural point of view, but consulting local codes on that would be prudent. If the beam and slab must be in contact for some reason, 1.5 inch of EPS on the exterior would be called for.”Well, Budesheim replies, that’s going to be a problem. The architect is calling for a strong connection between the existing stem walls and the new slab. He’s not including a thermal break of any kind between slab and the foundation wall.“I did read somewhere that in my climate, decoupling the slab from the side foundation walls, while helpful, is not as critical as in colder climates,” Budesheim says. “Is that correct?”Sort of, Dorsett says. Decoupling the slab from an uninsulated foundation isn’t critical in temperature Climate Zone 3C and is not required by the International Residential Code.“But when the slab becomes a heating radiator, it sure matters!” he adds. “If it were a cast-iron radiator, it’s the thermal equivalent of exposing the ends of the radiators to the outdoors.”An inch of extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation doesn’t provide much of a thermal break, Dorsett says. At R-5, it’s “better than nothing, I suppose, but not exactly great.” If Budesheim were to add an inch of XPS on the outside of the foundation wall, plus 1 inch between the new slab and the foundation, however, he’d be in the R-10 to R-11 range, “which is much more reasonable.”If the architect insists on eliminating the insulation between the slab and the foundation, as Budesheim suggests he will, Holladay tells him that exterior insulation will be a must.“You need to install insulation on the exterior side of your concrete stem wall, down to the bottom of the footing, and you need to protect the above-grade portion of the insulation with metal flashing or stucco,” he says. As part of a remodel of his San Francisco area home, Torsten Budesheim is converting the 700-square-foot lower level into living space. An existing slab has been removed, and Budesheim has removed a few inches of material to increase the finished ceiling height. Now, he’s nearly read to place a new 5-inch-thick slab that will include tubing for radiant heat.Budesheim’s architect has supplied a drawing for the concrete slab and its base layers, and the details are making Budesheim nervous. In particular, he wonders about the call for a 2-inch-thick layer of sand immediately below a 6-mil waterproofing membrane and an inch of rigid insulation.What has the gears turning are two articles Budesheim has come across, one by GBA senior editor Martin Holladay and another by the Building Science Corporation (BSC). In each, Budesheim finds a warning that a layer of what’s known as “blotter sand” beneath the concrete will lead to problems.
