Google Wave Now Open For All

first_imgGoogle just announced the general launch of Google Wave at its annual developer conference in San Francisco. Until today, Wave was an invite-only service, but starting now, anybody with a Google account will be able to log into Wave and use it without any restrictions. Google will also enable Wave for Google Apps users today. In order to educate these new users, the Google Wave team has also created a number of new videos and case studies that highlight how organizations can use Wave to collaborate more effectively.Collaboration: The Sweet Spot for WaveWhen we talked to the Wave team yesterday, the project’s co-founder Lars Rasmussen noted that since the launch of the invite-only beta, group collaboration in businesses, education, news organizations and at conferences has emerged as the sweet spot for Wave. That will be the use-case that the Wave team plans to highlight during the general launch and in the next few weeks. Why did Google decide to open up Wave now? According to the Wave team, the service is now stable and fast enough for a mainstream audience (crashes were a very common sight in the early days). During the invite-only testing period, the team added numerous new features that its early users requested. These include email notifications of updated waves and access controls for waves, as well as making it easier for users to reply and edit waves and find unread material in a wave. The team also introduced templates that make getting started easier for new users.Updates for DevelopersBesides opening up sign-ups for Wave, the team announced a number of developer features at I/O today. The next version of the Robots API, for example, will not only untie Wave robots from Google’s App Engine, but also allow developers to create “active” robots that can generate waves and update them. Google is launching improvements to the Embed API, including the ability to give readers anonymous access to waves. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Google#news#Real-Time Web#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting frederic lardinois Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Maybe the most exciting update is that Google is releasing a new Data API that will allow developers to create lightweight Wave clients. For now, as Rasmussen noted in our interview, developers won’t be able to create full-fledged Wave clients yet, but the team has started to define a client and server protocol that will soon make it a possibility.In order to help developers create their own applications on top of the Wave APIs and bootstrap the Wave developer community, the team is open-sourcing the real-time Wave rich text editor. The Wave team has also made progress in getting companies like Novell and projects like PyGoWave, Ruby on Sails and QWave to support the wave federation protocol. The latest company to sign on to this project is SAP, which will use Wave in its StreamWork product.Join Our Discussion on Wave 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Presumptive European Superiority Syndrome

first_imgStephen Thwaites is a professional engineer and the technical director of Thermotech Fiberglass Fenestration in Ottawa, Ontario. Most of the world, especially the green building community, assumes that “European” implies “more energy-efficient.” When it comes to windows, this automatic presumption of superior energy efficiency is both so common and so misplaced that it deserves a name: the Presumptive European Superiority Syndrome. Different Low-e 1So European glass looks better because of a more favorable standard. Some people (usually Passivhaus enthusiasts) will say that European windows have a lower Uglass not only because of differences in standards, but also because “they have better glass than we do.”I may be biased, but I’m not so sure. Take a closer look.Because the Passivhaus program is based on European (CEN) standards, my analysis is based on calculating Uglass to CEN conditions.The best insulating glass on the Passivhaus Institut’s Component Database for Glass is Guardian Europe’s “ClimaGuard Premium2.” It is listed as having a metric U of 0.49 when filled with krypton and having a G/SHGC of 0.53.In imperial units that’s U-0.086 or R-11.6. That’s a mind-bogglingly good insulating value. WINDOW7.1 produces the same results for Climaguard Premium2 under CEN conditions with a glass unit constructed as shown below. So, not surprisingly, the Passivhaus Institut’s listing is a legitimate result. For example, consider a high-solar-gain triple with two low-e coatings as shown in the drawing below: RELATED ARTICLES Comparing North American Window Frames to European FramesAll About U-FactorPassivhaus WindowsAll About Glazing OptionsHigh-Solar-Gain GlazingChoosing Triple-Glazed Windows European window standards (CEN) are based on an outdoor temperature of 32°F (0°C), while North American standards (NFRC) are based on an outdoor temperature of 0°F (-18°C). At the warmer exterior temperature of 0°C, there is a thermal benefit to a wider to 11/16-inch (18 mm) pane spacing (that is, to a wider gap between the multiple panes in an insulating glazing unit, or IGU). This benefit does not exist at the colder North American design temperature of 0°F.In other words, at 32°F, glass lites optimally spaced for 32°F insulate better than the same glass lites optimally spaced for 0°F. That’s why three lites of Europe-optimized glass has a European Uglass that is lower lower than a North American Uglass. (“Uglass” is the center-of-glass U-factor, as opposed to the whole-window U-factor shown on NFRC labels.) Different standardsHigher R-values (lower U-factors) for European glass are for the most part a product of different test standards rather than a refined European mastery of physics. Again, and as always, your mileage may vary. However, for this heating climate example, the North American high-solar-gain low-e results in about a 20% lower space heating demand than “the best” European low-e.Because this house so energy-efficient, this 20% spread at Passivhaus efficiency levels does not result in a large dollar savings; it is nevertheless important to note that there is likely no incremental cost to achieve this savings. (That is, there is no incremental cost to go from “North American hybrid” glazing to “North Americana super-gain” glazing.)The key point is that despite not insulating as well as the European low-e glazings, North American high-solar-gain low-e glazings take advantage of the fact that, for the most part, North American heating climates are sunnier than European heating climates.So not only can North American glass match the performance of European glass, but in heating climates it can also surpass it.I do think it’s fair to say, then, that when it comes to energy-efficient glass, that there should be no automatic presumption of European superiority. UPDATED on October 22, 2014 with an Addendum. For these low-e coatings, the G/SHGC is higher than the highest rated PHI-listed unit, which is good. On the other hand, the Uglass is also higher, which is not so good. Again, the best way to assess “better” is not to argue over more beer, but to run PHPP.The table below shows G/SHGC and Uglass for four North American high-solar-gain low-e glass options. More importantly, it also shows the respective specific heat demands when input into the Lancaster, New Hampshire PHPP model.center_img Depending on the inter-pane spacing and the calculation procedure, this glass unit can have very different U-factors.The table below compares the U-factors of optimally spaced glass for each of the NFRC and the CEN Standards. This Guardian version of a North American hybrid unit insulates slightly less well (about R-0.5 lower), and allows just slightly less solar gain (the SHGC is about 0.01 lower) than Guardian Europe’s Climaguard Premium. We could argue all day about how close is close, but the only way to evaluate the difference is not to argue over more beer, but to run PHPP.So I ran PHPP. I compared not only a North American hybrid unit based on Guardian North America’s glass, but also three other North American manufacturable (Cardinal, PPG & AGC) hybrid units. Using a PHPP model for a house in Lancaster, New Hampshire, I compared them all to Guardian Europe’s Climaguard Premium2 glass.Built by Garland Mill Timberframes in 2010, the Lancaster, New Hampshire, house is a highly glazed house in a heating climate. Its south-facing glass area is equivalent to about 17% of the floor area. This is high, but most of our custom house customers, whether building a Passivhaus or not, end up with houses with large south-facing glass areas. So, by my logic, it’s not an unreasonable example.I used the PHPP spreadsheet for this house to compare the effect of several different glass options. The table below compares four North American hybrid glass options to the most energy-efficient European glass option. The table compares their respective G/SHGC and Uglass characteristics, along with the PHPP-generated specific heat demand. All of the above options — some of today’s most crazily energy-efficient, most optimally spaced IGUs, with rather expensive krypton gas fills — are more energy-efficient than what was used in the 2010 New Hampshire house. That’s why all of the above glass options produce much lower specific heat demands than the 4.45 kBTU/ft^2/yr (14.2 kWh/m^2/yr) in the as-built PHPP model.Running the PHPP model with the four North-American-made glass units produced specific space heat demands ranging from 3.3 to 3.5 kWh/m^2/yr.So the North American hybrid glass results in 10%-20% higher projected heating bills for this cold-climate Passivhaus than the best European glass. For this house, the difference is about 160 to 320 kWh/yr. As a worst-case scenario, with $0.15/kWh electric-resistance heating, this 10% difference amounts to about $25 to $50 per year.I suspect that to most people the differences aren’t much. But the bragging rights do go to the European glass. Your mileage may vary, but my guess is that most heating climate Passivhaus buildings would probably get similar results. So that’s it then: the European glass is better, right?Not so quick, Poindexter. It is true that no single North American low-e coating can produce exactly this combination of SHGC and U-factor. European low-e coatings are different. European low-e coatings have SHGCs and U-factors partway between those of North American high-solar-gain low-e coatings and low-solar-gain low-e coatings.Logically, then, the best way to create a European-like unit with North American glass is to create a hybrid unit as shown in the diagram below. The North American hybrid unit has one high-solar-gain low-e and one low-solar-gain low-e. This hybrid unit comes awfully close to Guardian Europe’s ClimaGuard2. According to WINDOW 7.1, using Guardian Glass, such a hybrid unit has a G/SHGC of 0.52 and a metric U of 0.53. In imperial units that’s U-0.090 or R-11.1. Different Low-e 2There is at least one other worthwhile option to consider. It’s an option that takes advantage of North America’s sunnier climate. This option uses North American high-solar-gain low-e coatings for both of its low-e surfaces. Combined with a low-iron outer lite, let’s call it a super-gain glass unit. An example of this unit is shown below. This triple-glazed unit, when optimally spaced for each standard and evaluated according to each standard, has very different values for Uglass. In this case the CEN Uglass is 19% lower than the North American Uglass. (0.61 vs 0.76 W/m^2K or R-9.3 vs R-7.5).So European windows have a significant marketing advantage. Their Uglass is calculated differently, so they claim a significantly better insulating value for their glass. It’s sort of like runners comparing times for the 100, without specifying yards or meters — only worse.More bluntly, stating the Uglass value of a European window to North Americans without identifying it as a European Uglass -value is misleading. For that example tabulated above, it is very misleading.For more information on the implications of the above table, see the Addendum at the end of this article. AddendumSome people have wondered how two windows with high-solar-gain triple-glazed IGUs — one with an IGU with optimal spacing according to the NFRC standard, and one with an IGU with optimal spacing according to CEN — would fare when tested to the standard for which they were not optimized. The super-short answer is that would they do worse, but one would do worse than the other.The CEN-optimized unit loses all of its “advantage” when simulated with NFRC conditions. The NFRC-optimized unit, on the other hand, is almost imperceptably less insulating when simulated to the CEN conditions. An expanded table that shows all 4 results is shown below. The added information is in italics. [Editor’s note: The author of this article, Stephen Thwaites, is a window manufacturer.

Temple Owls Zach Smith joins Urban Meyers staff at Ohio State

New Ohio State football head coach Urban Meyer’s staff continued to take shape Thursday as the addition of Temple University wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator Zach Smith was announced. Smith, who spent five years coaching under Meyer at Florida as a quality control assistant and a graduate assistant from 2005-2009, comes to OSU after helping lead the Owls to a 9-4 record in 2011 and a 35-17 win against Wyoming in the New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 17. Smith oversaw a receiving unit that compiled 1,648 yards this past year. Two members of Temple’s special teams unit — junior punter Brandon McNamus and junior running back Matt Brown — received All-Mid-American Conference honors in 2011. “Zach has done a terrific job as wide receivers coach at…Temple,” Meyer said in a press release. “I am really looking forward to having the opportunity to work with him again. Ohio State is going to benefit from his coaching and his abilities as a recruiter.” A Dublin, Ohio, native and grandson of former Buckeyes coach Earle Bruce, Smith also served as wide receivers and special teams coach at Marshall during the 2010 season. “It is really, really a dream come true,” Smith said in a press release. “I grew up watching Ohio State, my grandfather coached here and I always dreamt of doing it, too. Plus, I have an opportunity to work with coach Meyer again. I was able to spend five years on his staff at Florida, and now working with him again is another dream come true for me.” Current OSU head coach Luke Fickell and his staff will remain in their positions through the Buckeyes’ Jan. 2 appearance in the 2012 Gator Bowl against Florida. Meyer’s staff will take over after. read more

Why Lionel Messi wants Rafinha sold

first_imgThere have been media speculations that Messi is resistant of acknowledging that Rafinha isn’t on the same level as Philippe Coutinho and should be offloaded according to birminghammail.Liverpool has confirmed that they had reached an agreement with La Liga club Barcelona for the transfer of Coutinho back in January and his transfer fee is reported to be an initial £105 million, which could rise to £142 million with various clauses that will be met.The midfielder joined Inter Milan on loan from Barca in January following Coutinho’s big-money arrival from Liverpool. Inter say they’ve been impressed with the Brazilian performance. But sporting director Piero Ausilio has suggested he’ll look to negotiate with the Catalans.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R.

Messi more motivated than ever Suarez

first_imgBarcelona striker Luis Suarez believes teammate Lionel Messi is more motivated than he has ever been.The Uruguayan believes Messi who was recently appointed as captain of the Spanish giants is motivated to put his World Cup disappointment behind him and lead the Catalan club to more success on the pitch.“He’s really motivated, even more so after the World Cup and the Champions League,” Suarez said, according to MailGuardian.“But it’s a really difficult competition to win and Messi can’t win it on his own. It has to be a team effort, as good as he is.“Obviously, it’s infuriating for us because Madrid have won the Champions League in each of the last three years. They have made history and it’s a thorn in our side.”Meanwhile, Suarez has come to the defense of Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde after the former Athletic Bilbao boss was criticized that he overworking his players in the Spanish League led to their disappointing exit in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League last season.“When you pass 30 you begin to realize there are times when you have to rest,” Suarez said.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“I regret a lot the game against Leganés at home when we had a big lead in La Liga and the quarterfinal with Roma three days later. I played the whole game and you get a bit tired,” he said.“You have to manage things to be at your best in the big games.I think the coach is seeing those little details.”Suarez turned 31 in January and scored 25 league goals last term. He would like to finish his career at the Camp Nou but admits it will be difficult.“It’s complicated,” Suarez said. “Look at players like Xavi [Xavier Hernández Creus] and Andrés [Iniesta], they are players who have been ingrained in the club but they have not been able to finish here.“I am aware the day I do not have the level to play for Barça I would have to leave, but the desire of every player is to end here.”last_img read more
