Cyclists Beware of Wind Noise

first_img Cyclists Ever think about how all the wind rushing past your ears could be slowly damaging your hearing? For Michael Seidman, MD, otolaryngologist and head and neck surgeon at Florida Hospital, the answer is yes. It occurred to him recently when he was out biking with his brother.“We were riding 18 to 20 mph and we couldn’t hear each other speak,” Dr. Seidman says. “I knew this had to be bad for hearing; I’ve determined that wind noise at speeds higher than 10 mph creates enough sound to damage the ear.”Michael Seidman, MD“People don’t think about it,” he adds. “We know about motorcyclists and wind noise when the rider doesn’t wear a helmet, but when it comes to cycling it just doesn’t seem as harmful. We should be aware of it, though. It’s not as innocuous as you think.”Dr. Seidman was so interested in the topic that he went on a bike ride in the wind tunnel at Ford Motor Company to examine it more closely.“I was riding at 50 to 60 mph, which is achievable on a bike when you go downhill,” he says. “Basically, if you are riding 1 to 2 hours at 10 mph with wind you could be damaging your hearing.”It’s similar to being at a noisy concert. Your ears recover each time, but over time the more concerts you go to, more and more permanent damage is being done.Dr. Seidman, who was the lead author of the study, Evaluation of Noise Exposure Secondary to Wind Noise in Cyclists, reported the findings with his colleagues on September 18 at the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery annual meeting in San Diego, California.He warns, earplugs aren’t the answer since you won’t be able to hear vehicles as they approach.

The Doonan Glasshouse / Sarah Waller Design

first_imgProducts used in this ProjectRenders / 3D AnimationAutodeskRevit – BIM SoftwareClients:Sarah Waller, Paul BlatchfordEngineering:Structures Engineering DesignCity:DoonanCountry:AustraliaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Mister MistressText description provided by the architects. The Doonan Glasshouse is the self-designed and built ‘dream home’ of Architect Sarah Waller. Adopting a ‘less is more’ approach, the floating terrazzo slab, long expanses of full height glass and a near flat roof provide a simple, yet elegant, linear form. Inspired by mid-century homes such as Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and Philip Johnson’s Glass House, Sarah Waller Design aimed to create a timeless piece of architecture in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.Save this picture!© Mister MistressSave this picture!© Mister MistressThe primary design intention was to remove the distinction between the indoors and outdoors in order to create spaces which feel open and transparent. Walls of glass spanning the length of the home allow an abundance of natural light to stream through, imbuing warmth and affording uninterrupted views of the lush surrounds. From within, the full height glass and butt-jointed corner windows increase the sense of openness and highlight the architectural features. Externally, the glass reflects the surrounding greenery which allows the structure to blend into the site and for the landscape to appear as if it is floating through the house.Save this picture!© Mister MistressSave this picture!© Mister MistressThe main house has an open floorplan with Kitchen and Dining Area, Living Area with Fireplace, Media Room, Study, Laundry and four Bedrooms and Bathrooms. The Master Bedroom and Studio act as two glass boxes which gently bookend the L shaped layout. Views from all rooms take advantage of the surrounding landscape and tropical climate. The unconventional kitchen takes pride of place in the center of the house and is the definition of minimalism with a restrained palette and clean lines. Generously sized black and white island benches punctuate the open plan layout and reflect the linear monochrome feel throughout.Save this picture!PlanThe philosophy behind this house was to create somewhere which made the occupant feel like they were on holidays all the time, which resulted in the resort style character of the design. Taking style cues from the Modernist Palm Springs pools popular during the 50’s, the home includes a streamlined 18-meter pool, offset with a Cabana which is ideally located for soaking up the sweeping views across the landscape. A tropical feel pervades the lush landscaping which envelops the house and with pool stepped down a level, views to the hinterland from the main house above are maximized. Simple mass tropical planting with up-lit feature trees are the basis of landscape design.Save this picture!© Mister MistressSave this picture!© Mister MistressOverall the clean lines, total transparency and minimal detail of this design come together to create an architectural statement which reflects the houses of the 1950s modernist movement, whilst the monochromatic colour scheme pulls the house together, resulting in a chic, modern and flowing family home.Save this picture!© Mister MistressProject gallerySee allShow lessIlil Coffee / ATMOROUNDSelected Projects150 Charles Apartment Building / COOKFOX ArchitectsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Products translation missing: Australia ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs Manufacturers: AutoDesk, James Hardie Australia, Fibonacci Stone, Fisher & Paykel, GJames, Reece, Bisazza Australia, Fenix Interiors Save this picture!© Mister Mistress+ 28Curated by Paula Pintos Share The Doonan Glasshouse / Sarah Waller DesignSave this projectSaveThe Doonan Glasshouse / Sarah Waller Design Houses “COPY” The Doonan Glasshouse / Sarah Waller Design Year: center_img Area:  660 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Sarah Waller ArchDaily Architects: Sarah Waller Design Area Area of this architecture project Lead Architects: CopyHouses•Doonan, Australia CopyAbout this officeSarah Waller DesignOfficeFollowProductsGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDoonanAustraliaPublished on April 26, 2019Cite: “The Doonan Glasshouse / Sarah Waller Design” 26 Apr 2019.

Journalist held without trial in eastern city for 15 months

first_imgNews May 12, 2021 Find out more Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections News April 29, 2021 Find out more Abdelhai worked for a regional radio station in Tébessa and was the local correspondent of the Arabic-language daily Jaridati when arrested on 18 August 2013 for allegedly helping Jaridati editor Hicham Aboud to flee the country to escape prosecution.According to Abdelhai’s lawyer, the police held him for five days (three days more than the legal limit) and mistreated in several different police units before transferring him to Tébessa prison, where he has remained ever since without any trial hearing being scheduled.A diabetic, Abdelhai began the hunger strike on 5 November after his lawyer’s fourth request for his provisional release was rejected. Since 15 May, his case has been awaiting a decision by the supreme court as to whether he should be tried before a magistrate or a criminal court.According to article 123 of the Algeria’s code of criminal procedure, pre-trial detention is supposed to be an exceptional measure and it is far from clear that grounds for exceptionality exist in Abdelhai’s case.“By holding this journalist for 15 months without trial, the Algerian authorities have violated his fundamental rights, above all, his right to freedom and a fair trial,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “We urge them to put him on trial now, so that he can defend himself, or otherwise free him at once.”Aboud, Abdelhai’s former editor, said the police questioned several people on the grounds that they had been in contact with him before he left the country. Aboud was charged last year with “endangering national security, territorial integrity and the proper functioning of national institutions” because he discussed President Bouteflika’s health with the international media. He was subsequently also charged with leaving the country illegally.The authorities seized the latest issues of Jaridati and the other newspaper Aboud edited, the French-language Monjournal, in May 2013 and closed them four months later. Aboud told Reporters Without Borders he left Algeria legally on 10 August 2013 using his passport, which had the stamps of both the Algerian and Tunisian border police.Aboud confirmed that he did meet with Abdelhai before crossing the border (which is 20 km east of Tébessa) but insisted that this did not constitute grounds for arresting Abdelhai. They arrested Abdelhai for political reasons, above all because they wanted to incriminate him (Aboud), he claimed.More than 430 people have so far signed a petition launched by journalists and activists on the Avaaz website last month urging the justice minister to free Abdelhai.Algeria is ranked 121st out of 180 countries in 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Since its creation in 2003, it has served as a unique information outlet and forum for dialogue in the face of government censorship and ubiquitous violence. But tackling such sensitive subjects as corruption, enforced disappearances and the consequences of Chechnya’s two wars entails risk. Shovkhalov and Dosh publisher Abdulla Duduyev were briefly kidnapped in Ingushetia in March 2010.

Ector County solar farm breaks ground

first_img Facebook Local News Dignitaries shovel sand during 174 Power Global’s ground breaking ceremony for the Oberon solar power facility on I-20 east of Monahans. It was bright and sunny Tuesday afternoon as 174 Power Global officially broke ground on its new solar farm, a new project expected to provide solar energy to about 30,000 households.The farm, called Oberon Solar, is located on a 5,000 acre site in west Ector County near Monahans. 174 Power Global President, Henry Yun, said Oberon will generate about 150,000 megawatts of energy, enough to power about 30,000 households.Households will primarily be what the farm powers, 174 Power Global Senior Director Deborah Reyes said, as well as some commercial and industrial buildings.The way it works, Reyes said, is their company will be selling the power generated to counter-parties, other energy providers, who will then provide the solar energy to where it’s needed most in the area. Despite the switch, Reyes said customers shouldn’t see their power bills go up.“In general, since energy prices have been coming down, we expect customers won’t be seeing a price increase,” Reyes said.Yun said his company recognizes solar as a piece of the energy solution for the future, and said his company will continue to look for future solar projects in Texas. This is their second project in Texas after a 236 megawatt project located in Pecos County.174 Power Global acquired a number of tax abatements for the project from local entities including Ector County, the Ector County Hospital District and Odessa College. The land could wind up generating more revenue for Ector County, as Odessa Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Director Wes Burnett previously said the land was only generating about $1,500 a year due to an agricultural exemption.State Rep. Brooks Landgraf (R-Midland) was also in attendance and spoke before the groundbreaking. Landgraf said the Permian Basin has been known as an epicenter in the U.S. for fossil fuel production, and now there would be even greater expansion of solar energy throughout the region.“We have more potential for solar power here than virtually any other area in the country,” Landgraf said. “The Permian Basin is leading the way in our country’s march toward energy independence.”Landgraf said he used to pray for rain, but now he’ll just have to take whatever comes, rain or shine.The project began in October 2016, and Reyes said it is expected to be completed and operational by the first quarter of 2020.
