Vaccination Week 2018 – aiming for 100% coverage

first_imgThe Georgetown District officially launched its Vaccination Week activities, which place emphasis on the importance of vaccines and their effectiveness.At the formal opening ceremony, District Medical Officer (ag) of Georgetown, Dr Dianele Drepaul pointed out that Guyanese must take advantage of this exercise since it can contribute to an overall coverage rate of 100 per cent.Georgetown District Medical Officer (ag), Dr Dianele DrepaulDr Drepaul added that “we still have a lot to do given the current situation in our neighbouring countries and with such porous borders that we have, we are quite susceptible to outbreaks. A parent who decides not to vaccinate their child runs the risk of that child becoming sick and also others who have not been vaccinated.”The local launch was hosted at the Sophia Health Centre under the theme “Strengthen your defence” #GetVax #VaccineWorks. It is being observed concurrently with the regional launch in Havana, Cuba, while countries in the Americas will observe the week from April 23 to April 27.Students of the Sophia Nursery and Primary Schools, along with public health representatives from various health centres in Georgetown, marched through the streets surrounding the health centre, kicking off the week’s observance.It has been noted that vaccines guard the human body against 17 antigens which include Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR); Diphtheria, and yellow fever. Vaccination Week facilitates protection of the population against vaccine-preventable diseases and national coverage is over 90 per cent for all antigens under one year.According to Family and Community Health Specialist at the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), Janice Woolford, Guyana’s vaccination package has expanded from one that caters to children, to a family immunisation programme. Vaccination Week is now being used as a platform to integrate other activities into the week’s schedule.This is the 16th year the Health Ministry is collaborating with PAHO/World Health Organisation (WHO) to host Vaccination Week in Guyana. It is a PAHO/WHO initiative and is inspired by the FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Russia, hence the theme “Strengthen your defence”.Since 2003, more than 720 million people of all ages have been vaccinated under the framework of this programme.  “Vaccination Week in the Americas began in 2003 as part of a response to an epidemic outbreak which was between Venezuela and Colombia in 2002,” Woolford said.The objectives of Vaccination Week are to advance equity and improve access to vaccination services, improve coverage, raise awareness on how vaccines work, and promote the transition from child to family health.last_img read more

Ayala too physical for El Rancho

first_imgWHITTIER – Ayala High School’s Caitlin Dement promised her coach another trip to the CIF-Southern Section, Division III girls water polo finals, and she led the Bulldogs in that direction Tuesday. The 5-foot-10 goalkeeper had 10 saves in a 10-6 victory over El Rancho in a quarterfinal game on Tuesday at Whittier. “I was worried because they are quick and we’re big, and that’s never a good match-up,” Ayala coach Vince Makuch said. Perhaps, but this time size did matter. Ayala used its physical advantage to keep El Rancho from getting the ball into the hole, which meant the majority of the Dons shots were from the perimeter. That played right into Dement’s hands. Literally. “It was pretty rough in the beginning, but in the fourth quarter, we got our act together,” Dement said. “I don’t know if this is a huge win, but it’s definitely a good win because of its importance.” Ayala has been to the finals the past two seasons and won one championship. The Bulldogs (25-5) are the No. 2 seed in the division and have been ranked among the top four teams all year. center_img El Rancho finished the season with a 19-11 record. Ayala’s Dani Curran scored two of her four goals in the first quarter to put the Bulldogs up by one. She had another in the second quarter to help Ayala to an 8-5 halftime lead. El Rancho freshman Isabel Aguirre was impressive in the quarter, when she scored both of her goals. The Dons put together a modest rally late in the fourth quarter when Curran and Salina Cadenas scored back-to-back goals to pull their team within four. “It was a slow start for both teams, but they were just bigger than we were,” El Rancho coach Sammy Wright said. “I won’t say we were intimidated by them, but we weren’t ready for them, either.” (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

La Mirada officials predict $2 million surplus

first_imgWHITTIER – Thanks to some conservative projections about spending and revenue – and a $500,000 donation for a historical park – city officials predict an additional $2 million will be added to an already large surplus. “It’s nice to be in fairly decent shape,” Mayor Pete Dames said Wednesday after the City Council received the report from staff the night before. “The way we budget historically has been kind of conservative.” John Saunders, interim director of administrative services, said revenue is up by about $1 million because of a $500,000 bequest for the historical Neff park from Mina Neff and an underestimate of how much money the state would give to the city to make up for taking sales tax dollars. Spending also is down by about $1 million – in part because the Aquatics Center won’t open until after the fiscal year ends. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUESUNDAY REPORTS Brian Mc Cormick – Area FinalsDunkineely Celtic 3 Copany Rovers 0Dunkineely continued their good start to the season with victory in the Donegal Town Area Final of The Brian Mc Cormick Cup. Copany began this game very well and had all the early possession and pressure. They found it very difficult to create any clear openings against a home defence well marshalled by Shane Mc Whinnie and Paul Mc Geoghan. David Graham was a constant threat for Copany on the left wing and his deliveries into the box gave Dunkineely plenty to think about. The first clear chance of the game fell to Dunkineely after 10 minutes when Andrew Mackey was put through by Adrian Nesbitt but he pulled his shot wide. Copany kept working hard and forced a number of corners but could not find the target. On 26 minutes Adrian Nesbitt saw his shot well saved by William Given in the Copany goal and he then hit the post with the rebound. Nesbitt made up for this miss two minutes later when he broke into the box from the left and his low shot beat the keeper at the near post. Andrew Mackey came close for Dunkineely with a shot on 30 minutes and a header on 43 minutes. The second half started as the first did with Copany putting the home side under some pressure. Thomas Given had a header from close range well saved by John Mc Mullin on 57 minutes. Dunkineely survived this pressure and doubled their lead on the hour mark when Alan Lyons found Andrew Mackey, with a great pass out of defence, and he ran through to beat the keeper from 10 yards. Copany fought back and Shane Harron saw his header come back of the bar. Despite their best efforts Copany could not get the goal that would have put them back in the game. Dunkineely squandered a number of good chances before Andrew Mackey finished the scoring with a tremendous shot from 25 yards which gave the keeper no chance.A deserved victory for Dunkineely but a great effort from Copany Rovers and their Mc Cormick Cup efforts will stand them well for the coming season.Rathmullan Celtic 3 Milford United 3(4-4 a.e.t. Milford won 4-2 on penalties)Milford United edged out defending Cup holders Rathmullan Celtic in the Area Shield Final of the Brian McCormick Cup after an exhilarating eight goal thriller at the Flagpole. Manus Boyce scored the all important spot kick to give Milford United a 4-2 triumph and secure a place in the semi-finals of the tournament in March.This local derby served up a Sunday sizzler of an Area Final in front of a two hundred strong attendance at the Seaside town, sharing eight goals after extra time after both sides were inseparable at 3-3 after the regulation 90 minutes.It was Paddy Sheridan and Paddy Burger Patton’s Rathmullan side that took the early advantage after six minutes when Kevin Mc Carry showed great composure in front of goal to beat Caolan Mc Gettigan inside the area after Dara Patton sent the winger through with a defence splitting lob from midfield. However former Fanad United striker PJ Hagan equalised proceedings for the Swans on 16 minutes with a scintillating strike into the top corner from 18 yards following a cross from the left wing from Darren McLaughlin. The Hoops almost edged ahead with the very next attack following their centre with man of the match Eamonn Sheridan setting Paddy Craig Sheridan through on the left side, but the winger was denied by a superb reflex save from Mc Gettigan in goals.The Seasiders pressed to regain the lead and duly did so on 35 minutes when Eoin Sheridan crossed to new signing Leonard Boyce inside the area and the striker tucked his strike into the bottom left corner. Yet again Milford responded and just on the stroke of half time Jimmy Heena took full advantage of a goal mouth scramble, following a corner, to strike low inside the six yard box and leave the derby tied at 2-2 at half time.Niall Doherty was brought down inside the Milford box on 50 minutes and striker Eamonn Sheridan was calmness personified from the resulting spot kick to give the Hoops the lead for the third time in the match. Former Hoops midfielder Johnny Sweeney thought he had equalised for United on 58 minutes after unleashing a venomous strike from 30 yards which saw Rathmullan keeper Ian Strain produce a finger tip save to deny the midfielder.Noel Gillespie and Peter Doherty’s Swans began adopting the Giovanni Trapattoni long ball game as the visitors heaped pressure on the Seasider’s defence and left winger Darren McLaughlin saw his strike come off the inside of Strain’s right hand post on 75 minutes. The Hoops were unlucky not to extend their lead on 85 minutes after Ryan Connolly was denied by another fine reflex save from Mc Gettigan. As the final whistle beckoned Darren Mc Loughlin popped up inside the area on 88 minutes to finish clinically and force the epic final into extra time. The Seasiders took the lead for the fourth time of the afternoon when Eamonn Sheridan scored an exceptional goal from 20 yards out at an almost impossible angle. Once again Connolly was denied by a fine save from Mc Gettigan on 97 minutes as the Hoops pressed to close out the contest. The Swans pressed for an equaliser in the second period of extra time and just when it seemed it was beyond them, Mark ‘Spike’ Flood rose highest at the back post to score an unstoppable header in the dying seconds of extra time following a corner from McLaughlin to snatch a dramatic equaliser and force the dreaded penalty shoot out to decide the derby finale.From the ensuing spot kicks, Milford advanced following Mc Gettigan’s heroics in goal and centre half Manus Boyce scored the winning penalty to give Gillespie and Doherty’s troops a 4-2 win in the shoot-out which sees them advance to the last four of the Brain McCormick Cup next March. Eamonn Sheridan had a stormer for the Seasiders with two goals and a composed performance up front while Milford’s never say die attitude saw them equalise four times and shade a classic derby after penalties after a dramatic eight goal thriller after 110 minutes of pulsating football.Referee: Patrick DuffyKeadue Rovers 1 Glenea United 2Glenea United emerged victorious in the Gweedore Area Final after this tight and entertaining affair at Central Park. In what were ideal conditions for football it was Glenea who started the stronger moving the ball about at pace and using the wings well. After weathering the initial ten minutes Keadue came more into the game and Donal Rodgers did well holding the ball and shooting on the turn, but the shot was saved by Joe Coll. With the home side now doing well the best chance of the game came in the twenty second minute. Following some good work down the left by Adam Neely and Ryan Greene it was Martin Redmond who had a great chance from close range but it was saved again by Joe Coll. However by the twenty eighth minute it was 1-0 to the home side when Ryan Greene picked up a pass outside the area, avoided a tackle, and unleashed a fine effort to the left hand corner of the net. Glenea responded very well to this setback and within a few minutes Michael Barry did well to get a shot in but it was saved by Ciaran Sharkey in the Keadue goal. They followed this up with a succession of corners and it came as no surprise when they equalised on forty one minutes. From a Glenea throw in they won a penalty following a foul just inside the box and up stepped Padraig McGee to confidently convert to make it 1-1 and it stayed that way until half time. At the start of the second half Keadue were forced into a substitution when right back Ryan Rodgers went off injuired forcing a bit of a re-shuffle to the home team. Against the run of play it was Glenea who went ahead on fifty two minutes. Another penalty was awarded and again Padraig McGee slotted home. Keadue responded well and following a good move on the hour Adrian Hanlon hit a firm shot just wide. Glenea striker Ryan McFadden was proving dangerous and shot narrowly wide soon after and Keadue’s Martin Redmond had a half decent effort go just over the bar as the game went from end to end. In the last twenty minutes however Glenea were getting more possession around midfield and generally were on top It was Glenea’s Michael Barry who came closest to scoring in the eighty third minute when his header from a good cross skimmed the crossbar. Glenea were proving just that little bit stronger and more experienced in the second half and held on for a hard fought but deserved victory. They were presented with the Gweedore Area Shield of the Brian McCormick Cup by Nigel Ferry of the Donegal League afterwards. A good competitive encounter with Keadue, despite being a division below Glenea proving a match for them and hopefully will have a good season ahead in Division 1 of the League while Glenea will be certainly in the running for the Premier Division title.Best for Glenea were Kevin McFadden, Padraig McGee and Ryan McFadden while best for Keadue were Ryan Greene, Paul Ferry and Adam Neely. Referee: Ed Moore.Castlefin Celtic 3 Drumoghill F.C. 2Drumoghill took the lead in the 12th minute after a mix up in the Castlefin defence saw the ball come across the box to Liam O’ Donnell who scored.Kevin Kelly could have made it two from the edge of the box but his shot went over the bar. Brian Coll was in top form in the Drumoghill defence. Kelly had another chance to double the lead but his shot was straight at Castlefin keeper Paul Lafferty.JP Malley should have equalised on 30 minutes but quick thinking from the Drumoghill defence saw his effort cleared off the line. PJ Mc Menamin then had a great effort from 30 yards saved by the Drumoghill keeper Greg Regan. Both midfields were playing well with Mark Carlin causing problems for the visitors.Castlefin started the brighter in the second half with the Drumoghill keeper Regan making three good saves.Kevin Kelly made it two nil to Drumoghill early in the second half. Despite being 2 down Castlefin never gave up and kept at the Drumoghill defence. Lack of communication in the Castlefin defence let Drumoghill in again but excellent work from Ciaran Brennan saw him clear of the line.Castlefin’s hard work was rewarded when Colin Carlin found Ronan Tourish on the edge of the box in the 74th minute for Tourish to find the far corner and make it 2-1. Castlefin kept the pressure on with Greg Regan making a great save to deny JP Malley.In the 83rd minute Castlefin found the equalizer when Drumoghill failed to clear a corner and PJ Mc Menamin found Colin Carlin who beat the keeper and tapped home from close range. With seven minutes remaining, as the big crowd was looking to extra-time, Ronan Tourish won a free kick. PJ Mc Menamin stepped up to hit the free and scored from 30 yards out to win the game FOR Castlefin Celtic. Referee: Kevin Logue. Best for Castlefin: Damien Mc Anenny, PJ Mc Menamin and Colin Carlin. Best for Drumoghill: Kevin Kelly and Greg ReganDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUESATURDAY REPORTSTUESDAY 03-09-2013Brian Mc Cormick CupMulroy Celtic 0 Bonagee United 4Bonagee travelled to Fanad for the final Brian Mc Cormick Cup Group match and left with their tails up after sweeping the home team aside. They took the lead through Karl Duggan who followed in a loose ball to head home. Soon after their frontman turned the Mulroy defence and dispatched a fine strike to the top corner. The home side offered very little and struggled to get a foothold in the game. Three and four followed in a second half which the away side held possession for long periods. Mulroy fashioned a few half chances when they brought on Talbot. Strong team performance from Bonagee United. Andrew Friel served Mulroy Celtic well.THURSDAY 05-09-2013Donegal Area – Group 2St. Catherines 0 Copany Rovers 2 a.e.t.St Catherine’s and Copany Rovers went head to head for a place in the Donegal area final.The game started slowly with both sides sloppy in possession but after 20 minutes both sides started to find their stride getting into good positions but the final ball letting both sides down. It remained 0-0 until halftime.Copany came out determined for the second half and started to create a few clear cut chances with Thomas Given and Callum Gallagher going close. On 75 minutes Marty Mc Grath got on the end of a David Graham cross but he hit the bar and five minutes later David Graham hit the post. St. Catherines couldn’t break the deadlock either so the match went to extra time.Copany again started sprightly and were rewarded with two quick goals one from the impressive Calum Gallagher and the second from David Graham. That’s how it finished 2-0 a.e.t. to Copany.SATURDAY 07-09-2013Old Orchard Saturday Division OneSt. Catherines Reserves 2 Castlefin Celtic Reserves 2Glenea United Reserves 0 Erne Wanderers 2It wintry conditions it was the league champions who took home all three points. Playing with the elements to their back in the first half Erne had most of the possession but were unable to create any clear cut chances until the 37th minute when Stephen Curneen headed home at the near post. Into the 2nd half and it was the home side who took control of the game but, like Erne in the opening period, they were unable to create any clear cut chances and were made to pay on 70 minutes when Mark Dorrian cooly slotted home. Glenea pushed hard to get back into the game but were denied by a couple of good saves from the Erne keeper. Credit to both sets of players in what were difficult conditions.Mulroy Celtic 3 Ramelton Mariners 2Played in monsoon conditions Mulroy claimed three valuable early season points. They took the lead inside five minutes when Enda Coll stepped inside two men and dispatched a great shot inside the near post. Against a very strong wind the away side played some good football and it paid off when they equalised after a badly defended corner. Mulroy continued to press and should have regained the lead when Packie rounded the keeper only for a last ditch tackle to save the keeper’s blushes. The conditions improved for the second half and it was the home side who took the lead again through Seamus Coyle who raced clear and finished clinically. They doubled their lead soon after when Coyle let fly from the edge of the area and a sizeable deflection took the ball over the keeper. Ramelton pulled a goal back with fifteen minutes left on the clock when they chipped the keeper. Mulroy held out for a hard fought win. Excellent team performance from the home side while Mariners were served well by Gibby and Giles.Glencar Inn Saturday Division TwoKeadue Rovers Reserves Arranmore UnitedMatch AbandonedMilford United Reserves Strand RoversMatch AbandonedDonegal Town Reserves 6 Cranford United Reserves 5Donegal Town came out on top in this extraordinary game which saw six goals scored inside the first sixteen minutes of play. Cranford three times took the lead but were pegged back on each occasion by a stubborn Donegal outfit. Buchanan put Cranford in front with a tidy finish at the near post. Donegal equalised straight from kick off when Paul Gerard Duncan was put through and he finished superbly. A Ben Mc Bride penalty was then cancelled out when Gary Harron struck a fine first time shot from outside the area. Paddy Doohan flicked home a near post corner shortly after but yet again Donegal came back when David Bustard headed home to make it 3-3 to cap of an incredible first sixteen minutes. Cranford went in ahead at the break through Paddy Doohan’s strike. After the break Donegal were much more composed and played some good football at times. Paul Gerard Duncan slipped the ball to David Harron out wide and his cross was met by David Bustard to level things up once again. Bustard then headed Donegal in front after he pounced on a mix up in the Cranford defence. With the game now in the balance Cranford broke the offside trap and Brendan Giles squared things up with ten minutes to go. Both teams pushed forward in search of a winner and Donegal made the crucial breakthrough when their star performer David Harron headed home a Ciarán O’Reilly cross. A thoroughly entertaining game which was played in a sporting manner. Best performers on the day for Donegal were the front pairing of David Harron and David Bustard along with Padhraic Mc Glynn in the centre of midfield. Overall a quality team performance from Cranford.Tullyvinney Rovers 0 Gweedore United Reserves 5This first day of the new League season saw this match reversed to Carrickboyle and the Gweedore side took full advantage. Tullyvinney with the aid of the strong wind, in the opening half, pressed the United defence and created half chances through Adam Gardener and Dennis Mc Bride. They found it difficult to break down the Gweedore back four. The home side looked dangerous on the break and in the 35th minute Sean Paul Mc Fadden broke the deadlock when he finished well past Michael Shields following a good through pass from Stephen O’ Donnell. In the second half the home side had the aid of the strong breeze and went two up in the 46th minute when Sean Paul Mc Fadden got his second with a good free kick from 20 yards. In the 52nd minute Ciaran Cannon made it three when he finished well having spotted Shields off his line. In the 72nd minute Mc Mahon got his hat-trick and United’s 4th when his pace took him past two defenders to finish well. United made it five in the 85th minute with Stephen O’ Donnell finishing well. In difficult weather conditions both teams delivered good performances with Sean Paul Mc Mahon deserving of his hat-trick on the day.Curragh Athletic Reserves 3 Glenree United Reserves 2Curragh Athletic Reserves got their new Saturday League campaign underway with a victory over Glenree United Reserves. Glenree opened the scoring on seventeen minutes through Declan Nelis. Curragh equalised following a good move resulting in Shane Elliot being brought down for a penalty. Young Justin Mc Bride stepped up and coolly scored past the Glenree stopper. Glenree went ahead again in the 52nd minute through Damian Nelis. Curragh again equalised in the 65th minute after good approach work from Burnsy who whipped in a cross and Shane Elliot beat the defender to head past the keeper. Curragh won the game in the 85th minute when a through ball from Marty Mc Laughlin found Gary Heeney who expertly drilled the ball over the advancing keeper. Curragh held on for a deserved victory.

first_imgGAA pundit and former Derry football star Joe Brolly has had another go at Kerry – after he famously wrote off the county before the All-Ireland final win over Donegal.The barrister was on the end of Kieran Donaghy’s wrath in the aftermath of Sunday’s final.The full forward slammed Brolly’s claim that the Kerry ‘conveyor belt’ producing top players was broken. But in the latest twist in the heated row another forward – James O Donoghue – tweeted the same question directing to Brolly, writing: “Well Joe Brolly what did you make of that?”Brolly responded: “Pure s****”And in another Tweet, he had a swipe at fellow Sunday Game pundit Pat Spillane.The Kerryman had previously described Donegal football as ‘puke football’. So Brolly tweeted: “It’s only puke football when Kerry aren’t playing it.”He said in another tweet: “Fitzmaurice had no choice. It was the smart play. They would inevitably have lost otherwise. A forgiveable travesty.”He also congratulated O Donoghue but added: “Do something about your hair.”Brolly had been unable to appear on the highlights of the Sunday Game on Sunday night because of a charity commitment.But Spillane was there – and he stuck the knife into Donegal by claiming ‘footballing class’ had won on Sunday, insisting the better footballers were on the Kerry team. A smiling Martin McHugh didn’t rise to the bait, instead congratulating Kerry on their win.JOE BROLLY IN NEW JIBE AT KERRY, DONAGHY AND PAT SPILLANE was last modified: September 24th, 2014 by John2Share 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:donegalJOE BROLLYKerryPat SpillaneSunday Gamelast_img read more

Blog Review: Erik’s Blog

first_imgOn backyard sustainability“This is not news to anyone, but clearly being green in a holistic sense has to involve getting more local and more solar (ala Michael Pollan) in many ways, and food is one of those ways. It’s also exploring community/CSAs [Community Supported Agriculture] vs. rugged individualism/homesteading.” On developing a solar strategy“The point is … even in a superinsulated house, heating is a big part of the overall energy use (if looking at heating, cooling, hot-water heating, cooking, lighting and appliance use in a household that is reasonably considerate of their usage.) So if you can cut this, even by 25% due to solar, you are going to be in much better shape. Some will argue that [it] is better to spend solar dollars on PVs that can be used year-round, but in cold climates with very efficient solar-thermal heating done on the cheap with the help of and ‘simplysolar’ and ‘solarheat’ Yahoo group participants, the cost per KWh of energy saved is going to be much lower.” On meeting Passivhaus goals“There are some people who think the Passivhaus requirements are too difficult for New England, the upper Midwest, and maybe Phoenix I’ve heard (on the heating end of the spectrum). But I personally disagree. If people want to live in extreme environments, then I see no reason why they should be let off the hook. What I would say, is that it really is quite reasonable to take an 80% or 90% approach. Well, or 50% is good too! In other words, if one can get to within 90% of a Passivhaus, then gosh, that is quite an amazing house you’ve got there.” Erik Haugsjaa is a software engineer and Web consultant who lives in Stow, Massachusetts, in a house he says comes close to net-zero energy performance. Built in 2010, his 2 1/2-story, 1,650-square-foot. house is equipped with a 6.9-kW photovoltaic array and a ductless minisplit system for heating and air conditioning.Haugsjaa’s blog, Erik’s Blog, is a collection of observations about the house and its mechanical systems, with a variety of links to related sites and a lot of seemingly extraneous commentary. Haugsjaa doesn’t present himself as a master green builder or energy designer, so the language is approachable rather than authoritative. It’s as if you got a series of letters from an old friend about the house he was building which also touched on a variety of other topics.The archives go back to October 2008, long before he moved into his ultra-efficient house. Back then, Haugsjaa commented on a number of non-building but still green issues, such as what kinds of toys he liked to buy for his 4-year-old (Legos), or the wisdom of buying prepaid cell phone service (saves money), or advice on which of two similar products to choose when shopping (go for the lighter one).Later, the talk veers more toward meat-and-potatoes issues, such as the coefficient of performance for air-source heat pumps or comparing the heat potential of propane vs. electricity. There is plenty of hard data in those posts.If you’re looking for green building advice from the heights of Olympus, Erik’s Blog probably isn’t the place for you.

What?!!!!! I would set back my house temp to 45°F if I were away if I could! Maybe (I can figure out a way to fool it, like one can with a typical thermostat with those 15°F setback timers you can control via X10.) What a hassle though!”And this one:“Wet clothes after playing in the snow. How do you get them dry? In a typical northern house, I would put them on a radiator or forced-hot-air vent, in the boiler room, in front of the wood stove, etc. Those don’t exist in this house! And we axed the clothes dryer too! I guess this is where one of those bathroom towel-dryers comes in handy. Or we use a typical dehumidifier in our big mudroom closet. Works OK. But still, just sayin’! You can get floor models for air-source heat pumps I guess. Maybe that would do the trick. But that takes up more space. “ On ‘holistic’ thinking“OK, so nice house. Do you eat meat? What MPG does your car get and how many miles do you drive? These things matter a lot too. Especially relative to a house operating very efficiently. A vegan driving a Prius (or living in the city and walking) maybe has a smaller carbon footprint more than someone living in a small Passivhaus. I don’t know! But it’s not too hard to run the numbers. Gary Reysa at does this. See his ‘half’ project. Marc Rosenabaum at does this if you are designing a house or co-housing community or fixing up an office building or dormitory, etc. If I buy a lot of stuff and fly in airplanes a lot, my Passivhaus doesn’t matter so much any more.”last_img read more
