WI Women urged to improve fielding

first_imgDURBAN, South Africa (CMC):Assistant coach Ezra Moseley, has said that West Indies Women need to improve heading into the Twenty20 series against South Africa, despite winning the just concluded one-day international series.The Caribbean side beat the Proteas Women 2-1 in the three-match series in East London, but Moseley said that the performance was not up to their usual standards and pointed to the fielding as one area that needed enhancing.”It’s always good to win a series away from home although in my opinion, I don’t think we played to the best of our ability,” the former West Indies seamer said.”I was satisfied because it’s always nice to win, but we left Barbados saying we were going to look to win all three, but there were things that happened along the way. We had the captain (Stafanie Taylor) getting injured for the last game, and also the Knight sisters (Kyshona and Kycia) were out for most of the series and only Kyshona played.”We were happy in the end to win 2-1, but there are certain areas we need to brush up on. Our fielding during the tournament was not up to good standards, so that is something we have to work on going forward into the T20s and also into the World Cup.”West Indies Women will turn their attention to the three-match T20 series, which bowls off at Kingsmead today.last_img read more

Martin’s 10 Rules of Lighting

first_img Sign up for a free trial and get instant access to this article as well as GBA’s complete library of premium articles and construction details. Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in This article is only available to GBA Prime Memberscenter_img Most homes use too much energy for lighting. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average American household uses 1,667 kWh per year for lighting, which amounts to 15.3% of residential electricity use. Ironically, this energy devoted to lighting is used inefficiently, so the usual result is a dim house with dark, depressing corners.Although many electric utilities have subsidized the cost of bulb swap programs for years, the typical house still has far too many incandescent bulbs. Even people who have swapped their incandencents for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) often install their bulbs in terrible fixtures with opaque shades or dark lenses. Fixtures are often installed in awkward spots. The dark corners that are common in a poorly lit house become more noticeable as we all get older; to see well, older people need more light than younger people.Finally, many houses have too few switches, so that homeowners have to make an all-or-nothing decision about whether to turn on all six bulbs in a track-light fixture.Once you become aware of some basic lighting principles, you’ll be able to solve the lighting problems in your own home and the homes you build. There’s only one downside to obtaining a lighting education: every time you stay in a hotel room, the bad lighting will drive you crazy.Lighting designers have their own jargon. They call light bulbs “lamps,” for example, and they call light fixtures “luminaires.”Lighting designers often tell us that there are four different kinds of light: ambient, task, accent, and decorative.Ambient light is the soft, general illumination that fills a room and softens shadows.Task lighting is a focused source of light near a work surface, a countertop, or a book.Accent lighting is a type of directed illumination used to spotlight an… last_img read more
