Summer Camp, Day 30! A Trio of Tony Winners Show Us a ‘Real Good Time’

first_img LOOK OUT FOR… 1:10. Just a sensible kick to the face. McKechnie probably had bruises on her forehead after that. OVERALL CAMP FACTOR A real, real, REAL good time. View Comments MOST GIF-ABLE MOMENTcenter_img We’re gonna be honest: Things around the offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in! WHY WE LOVE IT Jeremy F., who submitted this campy goldmine, writes, “This is what happens when three could-be Roses come together with a genius costume designer.” OK, so now that we’ve all imagined exactly what these three Tony winners’ “Rose’s Turn”s would sound like, let’s get to those costumes. A fur coat with a silvery inner lining. A frilly two-piece with a cape. A purple ensemble that would be perfect for that “sexy Grimace” Halloween costume we’ve been brainstorming. You know, your standard burlesque fare. But then comes that magical moment when they turn around, turn back, and they’re suddenly in the most elegant of gowns. How’s THAT for a gimmick?last_img read more

Rushing the Floor

first_imgA lot has been made of the fans rushing the floor after Kansas State upset Kansas at a recent basketball game.  The mob-like scene on the floor almost crushed an older gentlemen who fell to the floor, and it is reported that some over enthusiastic fans tried to assault a Kansas ball player caught in the melee.What should the college and high school athletic departments do to stop the practice of rushing the floor after a big win by the home team?  I think the easiest solution is to train the crowd control personnel to form some type of line to funnel the fans into a central location on the floor.  This allows the opposing team to exit and keeps the fans from pushing people into the sideline tables.  The Kansas State Athletic Department admitted that their personnel were slow in reacting and could not get the funnel formed in time.  It is reported by them that this was the first time the crowd control people failed to stop the crowd.The above incident is unfortunate, but what I don’t want to see is the threat of forfeiture for the winning team if the crowd gets out of control.  Fans have to be allowed to show their enthusiasm, but we don’t want to see anyone get hurt.last_img read more

Syracuse’s comeback comes up short in game of runs, lose to No. 22 Florida State 80-62

first_img Published on February 5, 2019 at 10:04 pm Contact Billy: [email protected] | @Wheyen3 With Syracuse’s walk-ons on the floor when Wednesday’s final buzzer sounded, Tyus Battle sat on the Syracuse bench for a few extra seconds. It had been mostly on him to try and make it back from a huge deficit, and he looked exhausted. He squirted a drink in his mouth, went to shake hands and was the last Syracuse player to head to the locker room — chin down, having done plenty, yet not enough.“I thought (Battle) and Elijah (Hughes) and Oshae (Brissett) did everything they could,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said.In a game of runs, No. 22 Florida State (17-5, 5-4 Atlantic Coast) broke out first before Syracuse (16-7, 7-3) responded. But in the end, FSU had one more run than the Orange and won, 80-62. It would’ve been the largest deficit the Orange came back from this season to win, but the comeback came up short. From down 22 to within one, SU couldn’t get over the final hump to complete the rally.“I thought the most amazing thing is they’re really good,” Boeheim said, “and we made an unbelievable effort to get back in it.”More Coverage:AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSuperlatives from Syracuse’s 80-62 loss to No. 22 Florida State Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse took the early lead, 7-6. But then Florida State, which entered as a 33 percent shooting team beyond the arc, caught fire. The Seminoles hit six of their first eight 3-point attempts. The wings, the corners, from the top of the arc, it didn’t matter. Kicks to the post or drives created open looks, and FSU didn’t leave them on the table. A 27-5 run for FSU later, the Orange trailed 33-12.A few plays later, Terance Mann finished an and-1 through Paschal Chukwu, Jim Boeheim asked Chukwu why he didn’t move his feet and the Seminoles led 36-14.“If you don’t play defense, you’re not scoring on the other end, that’s what happens,” Battle said.From there, though, the Orange answered with a run of their own. Battle went all the way off a transition opportunity to finish lefty, then swished a righty floater. Brissett drove inside for an and-1. Buddy Boeheim hit two jumpers. Battle kept going, eventually hitting a 3 from the top and two free throws to close the half.The Carrier Dome crowd got back into the game, and less than eight minutes after trailing by 22, the Orange trailed by eight.“I knew once we were down by 20 we were gonna get back in the game at some point,” Battle said.Talia Trackim | Digital Design EditorSyracuse recovered from down 10 in South Bend to beat Notre Dame. At then-No. 1 Duke, the Orange trailed by 12 within minutes of tip-off before emerging on top in overtime. At home against Georgetown, the difference was as high as 15 early in the second half. Each time, SU answered with a big enough run to get ahead, and from there held off the opposition. But 22 points would be another level of comeback.Brissett opened the second-half scoring with a jumper, and the Orange kept chipping away. Battle stole a perimeter pass and flew in for two. Buddy hit a one-legged runner off glass, too. The deficit was six at the under-16 timeout.When Battle drove out of the first media break and found Brissett, the sophomore could’ve went up for a tricky shot inside. But instead he kicked crosscourt to Hughes, who knocked it down, and the difference was three.Brissett followed it up with a putback to get within one. From 22 down to one — a comeback that could’ve defined a season.From there, it was back and forth, with the Orange getting it back to a one-possession game again and again. Full-court pressure had brought SU back into the game, but the length of time Syracuse had to press wore on the Orange. Each one-possession margin would return to two, and FSU started to break the tight defense.“(The press) did get us in the game, but I don’t think we had enough gas left to finish,” Boeheim said.Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerThe Seminoles finally found the edge with one final spurt, as Syracuse ran out of juice. Hughes gave the ball away to Mann, who pushed the floor for a two-handed slam. A putback and then 3 followed from Mfiondu Kabengele to stretch the gap to 10 again. Soon, he swished another 3, unleashed a loud scream and flexed both arms.Syracuse had used all of its timeouts, so it couldn’t slow FSU. The home crowd, raucous a few minutes before, didn’t have the same life. And the Orange, which had fought almost all the way back, felt their energy drain.“We see them score, we don’t score, and they score again,” Hughes said. “That’s just hard to stay locked in and stay focused and keep getting stops. It became hard.”The Orange wouldn’t be within single digits again. Syracuse didn’t have another run.“Basketball’s a game of runs,” Battle said. “That’s exactly what this game was tonight. They made some runs, we made some runs, and they ended up making the last run at the end.” Commentslast_img read more

Comparing Green Building Rating Systems: LEED or NGBS?

first_imgOTHERS IN THIS SERIES Part 1: The Journey BeginsPart 2: Energy StarPart 3: EarthCraft Part 4: LEED and NGBSPart 5: Comparing the SystemsRELATED CONTENTGreen Primer:What is Green Certification?GBA Encyclopedia:Green Rating Systems for Home BuildingGBA Encyclopedia:LEED for HomesGBA Encyclopedia:National Green Building StandardGBA Encyclopedia:Green Design and PlanningBlogs:Fraudulent GreenBlogs:More Whining About Green Building Programs Two of the green rating programs we’ve mentioned in this blog series are the LEED for Homes program and the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) developed by NAHB. The intent of these two certification programs is similar.For the most part, the points available in each program are similar. The LEED for Homes checklist and spreadsheets are very user-friendly, and there is a decent amount of information on the Web site. We were very surprised that answers to questions about the LEED program came very slowly – it took a very long time to hear back from USGBC. I also felt that USGBC was very proprietary with their information.center_img The NGBS checklist was done online. The Web site was very easy to navigate; most of our questions were answered in the links as we completed each section. However, it was very cumbersome to get through the first time. I think I spent about four hours going through it. It would have been nice to just go directly to a spreadsheet to fill out.I especially liked the sections in NGBS where it named the approved products. (With the LEED for Homes program, on the other hand, I felt like we were reinventing the wheel each time we tried to use a certain product.) Another nice feature of the NGBS Web site is that it incorporates the Builder’s Challenge into their online tool; it tells you every point that is required so you don’t accidentally overlook something.LEED requires more paperworkThe required inspections were nearly much identical – a pre-drywall inspection and a final inspection. The two certification programs have similar documentation requirements, with one exception: the durability checklist required by the LEED for Homes program. This durability checklist seemed a little unnecessary, considering that the information was already on the plans or specs.Creating all of the accountability forms and getting the subs to sign them was a lot of work; LEED for Homes has more monotonous paperwork.Once we sent off our application, it took several weeks for our LEED for Homes application to get approved. In contrast, the NGBS was approved within a few days, and they even processed the Builder’s Challenge certification for us.I’ll say one thing: the LEED for Homes certificate is the nicest I have seen from any of the programs. It came in a nice folder and was designed to look like it had been mounted and framed (even though it was not). The Builder’s Challenge sticker is pretty nice – they put our company logo on it and it has a color HERS scale on it which could be a great marketing tool when trying to explain a home’s HERS Index to a potential buyer.Comparable stringencyAlthough most people think that the LEED for Homes program is much more stringent than the NGBS program, I did not find that to be the case. That may be true only on the bottom rung of each program — if you compare a LEED for Homes Certified home to a NGBS Bronze level home. One of the flaws in the NGBS program is that Energy Star Homes certification is not a prerequisite.Once you rise up the rungs, the two programs are more in line with each other. The LEED for Homes silver, gold, and platinum levels are comparable to the NGBS gold, silver, and emerald levels.Our Platinum LEED home — nicknamed the Mean Lean Dream Green Platinum Level LEED for Homes house — did not get Emerald certification from NGBS, only Gold. So arguably, the NGBS program is more stringent than LEED, although I’m sure if you move the points around you can prove the opposite as well.A nice thing about the NGBS program: as you moved up each level, there were minimum scores for each division. In contract, the LEED for Homes program does not have minimums for each division — allowing you to be point-heavy in one area and weak in another. I believe that overall, the NGBS program results in a more balanced house.Point chasingAt times I did feel like we were just chasing points, but I guess that is just the nature of these programs. There are a few requirements in these programs that are well-intentioned but may not make much sense, depending on where you are building. For example, we went through a lot of work to use locally made lumber; that meant we had to purchase some of our material from different suppliers. As a result, five different companies sent half-loaded trucks to our site rather than one large tractor trailer with all of our material in one trip. I am not sure if we reduced our carbon footprint in that case.Another item that may not have lessened our carbon footprint: since we were trying to get a point for ceiling joists spaced more than 16 in. on center, we had to increase the depth of the ceiling joists. Sso even though we had fewer joists, we needed 2x12s instead of 2x8s — so I am not sure if we really used fewer board feet of lumber. Some would argue that 2x8s can come out of smaller trees than 2x12s — so I’m not sure how much that point-chasing really helped.To me, green building is really about the performance of the building rather than the materials. So, even though rounding up the materials did require a lot of time and effort, I did not lose too much sleep over that stuff.A good sales toolOverall I have enjoyed my green building journey. I have learned a lot, and I feel our company, Kelly McArdle, is building better houses because of it. I like having a third party inspect our homes; it helps protect us and is also a good sales tool. As I had hoped, green building has really set us apart from other custom builders in our area, and we have gotten several jobs as a result of our knowledge and experience in green building.I am constantly amazed that builders and architects who are leaders in the industry understand so little about green building. They are convinced that it is much more complex than it actually is. This new knowledge and experience has also helped get our foot in the door with some people who would not have considered us a few short years ago.After attending some of the recent conferences, it appears that today’s green home is tomorrow’s code-minimum home. What was formerly something that set us apart is going to be required of every home builder. So as not to remain stagnant, you would be advised to get ready to walk, jog and run on your own journey to green.Personally, I’m thinking about what we need to do to fly!Danny Kelly is a co-owner of Kelly McArdle Construction in Charlotte, North Carolina.last_img read more
