Energy Efficiency Evolution in Western Missouri

first_imgThough Missouri is among the dozen or so states that have yet to adopt a statewide energy efficiency code for residential and private commercial construction, it is not without green building proponents and strategies.About a year ago, GBA noted that the Building Codes Assistance Project, a Washington, DC, advocacy group that offers code-development assistance to state and local officials, has been closely tracking state and local code initiatives, including those in Missouri, where homebuilding associations have argued against regulations they say will raise prices. But green builders in the state have nonetheless proposed programs designed to encourage high-performance construction, including one that would offer financial incentives, in the form of reduced permit fees, for building to the National Association of Home Builders’ National Green Building Standard, also known as the ICC-700.And now the ICC-700 – serving as the residential construction component of the International Code Council’s International Green Construction Code – is being considered for adoption as a voluntary guideline for homebuilding in Clay County, part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. (Clay County and Jefferson County, near St. Louis, are the only two counties in Missouri authorized to adopt, without voter approval, regulations for residential and private commercial construction, according to the BCAP.)Soliciting feedback from the communityA recent story in the Liberty Tribune, which serves Clay County, describes the drive to implement ICC-700 on a voluntary basis as largely collaborative, with the county’s Building Codes Commission set to hold public meetings on the subject on July 14 and 28, and August 11.The man behind the proposal, Matt Tapp, the county’s director of planning and zoning, included a provision to grade participating projects based on their compliance with the National Green Building Standard, and then post each home’s grade on a special sign in front of the house when it’s listed for sale.“It’s been kind of in the back of my mind ever since I got here in 2008 that we needed to move toward a green building standard,” Tapp told the paper. “We want to make the houses that are being built in Clay County more sustainable. It’s just a good idea.”last_img read more

Ashwin climbs to seventh, Kohli maintains top spot in ICC Test rankings

first_imgVirat Kohli maintained his position atop the ICC Test batsmen rankings, with Ravichandran Ashwin gaining a place to be seventh in the bowlers list. Ravindra Jadeja also maintained his position in 5th in the bowlers rankings.Jadeja also continues to be in second position in the all rounder’s list ahead of India’s four-Test series against Australia beginning December 6.Amongst other teams, Jonny Bairstow of England, Bangladesh’s Mominul Haque and Yasir Shah of Pakistan have made impressive gains following their contributions in their sides’ convincing victories earlier this week.Bairstow’s 110 and 15 was the cornerstone of England’s 42-run victory over Sri Lanka in Colombo, which gave the visitors a 3-0 series win.Mominul scored 120 and 12 as Bangladesh defeated the Windies by 64 runs in Chittagong for their maiden win over the Caribbean side, and Yasir recorded match figures of 14 for 184 as Pakistan bounced back in Dubai to level the series with New Zealand following an innings-and-16-run victory.These performances not only earned the three players the match awards, but also reflected in the latest player rankings, which were released Wednesday morning.Bairstow has returned to the top-20 in 16th place after rising six places, Mominul is now just outside the top-20 in 24th place after moving up 11 places and Yasir is back in the top-10 in 10th position after jumping nine places.A number of other players have improved their rankings, following impressive performances in the just-concluded Tests.In the batting table, which Kohli continues to lead, Azhar Ali has moved up three places to 12th, Kusal Mendis is 20th (up by eight places), Ben Stokes is 31st (up by five places), Roshen Silva is 48th (up by five places) and Shane Dowrich is 58th (up by seven places).advertisementNew Zealand’s Henry Nicholls leads the pack of batsmen who have achieved career-high rankings.Nicholls is now ranked 17th (up by three places), Jos Buttler is 18th (up by three places), Haris Sohail is 38th (up by 33 places), Babar Azam is 39th (up by 24 places) and Ben Foakes is 50th (up by four places).In the bowlers’ table, Kagiso Rabada has become the number-one bowler after England’s James Anderson lost one per cent of his points for missing the Colombo Test. This meant Anderson lost nine points and has now dropped eight points behind the South Africa fast bowler.(With inputs from PTI)Also Read | Indian cricket is built mostly on perceptions, says Ravichandran AshwinAlso Read | Kohli opts for gym session as rain washes out Day 1 of India’s Test warm-upAlso Read | Virat Kohli could eclipse MS Dhoni as highest earning Indian sportsman everAlso Read | Virat Kohli will have another imperious outing in Australia Tests: GilchristAlso watch –last_img read more

Lampard buzzing after Derbys comeback win

first_imgDerby County manager Frank Lampard is in seventh heaven after his side scored two late goals to win 4-3 at Norwich City on Saturday.Norwich were 3-2 ahead with just nine minutes to go, but Florian Jozefzoon’s 87th-minute goal pulled the game level before Jack Marriott netted in stoppage time to complete the comeback for Frank Lampard’s side.The game was delayed by 25 minutes after a fuse box problem caused a section of the stadium to lose power after Norwich had gone 3-2 up.“It was a game which had everything and I don’t think I have been involved with one like that before,” Lampard told Sky Sports.“I have certainly never gone back to the dressing room and then come back like that before and as a manager, I have never been involved in a game with two late goals like that.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“I think the delay worked in our favor because Norwich had just scored their goal and the momentum was with them.It was bad timing for them and good timing for us because it gave us the chance to reorganize things and I thought David Nugent did a superb job when he came on, playing a part in both our goals.“Norwich will be saying they deserved something from the game, and they would have [deserved] a point to be fair, but I think we deserved this for the way we came out after the delay.“The players deserve so much credit for coming away from a tough place like this with three points.”last_img read more
