Join us for live news and analysis Friday at 4:30 p.m. when the Warriors visit Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks in a much-anticipated game.The matchup itself, pitting the 4-1 Warriors against the 1-4 Knicks isn’t much appealing on its surface, especially with Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis still out with a knee injury. And even the allure of the two-time defending champion Warriors themselves isn’t what excites Knicks fans the most.The real allure is free-agent-to-be …
Excellent high quality and seems particularly like the picture.Like this wig, so comfy to have on, not as well thick as a result your head can breath and it truly is truly real looking, i’ve experienced masses of compliments and folks can not believe it truly is a wig.

I’m extremely content considering i only used 16.Not also significant effortless to set on and clip in.
We reached out to the Cache Owner mrradach to interview them about geocaching, creating awesome geocaches, and many other fun questions. We will release the full interview this Friday on the Geocaching blog. An excerpt: HQ: Do you have a favorite hide of your own?mrradach: Every one of them is my favorite (laughs). But if I highlighted one, that would be Chuchichäschtli Deluxe (GC6MZEJ). Not only was the production a lot of fun, but also naming it was fun. I found a good way to involve the community because they voted on what the name should be. I’d like to help inspire other cachers to create high quality, well thought out caches.Continue to explore some of the most amazing geocaches around the world.Check out all of the Geocaches of the Week on the Geocaching blog.

The next step is to conquer the metal maze designed to challenge those who believe they are worthy of logging this cache. Navigate the chain-linked game piece through the twists and turns of the maze to open up the next stage. Two smaller doors with no indication of how they open is the final hurdle to this creative cache. The only hint we can provide is that they may (or may not) work in conjunction with one another. Welcome to Chuchichäschtli Deluxe! Did you pronounce that correctly? If not, don’t worry you’re not alone — trying to pronounce the name of this geocache is almost as puzzling as the cache itself. Swiss-German (Schweizerdeutsch) speakers can say this expression with ease, but we won’t keep the door shut on the translation. It is the typical Swiss-German term for kitchen cupboard, although this isn’t your typical cupboard (unless you like to store things in the woods). Opening the first door presents a big challenge, a labyrinth that is more deceptive than meets the eye. Nestled into a wooded area about 7 km (4 mi) from the busy streets of Basel City’s beautiful downtown district, and a five-minute walk from the German border, you’ll find ‘Chuchichaschtli Deluxe.’ Meandering hiking trails intertwine through the little forest with a few other geocaches scattered about. Finding GC6MZEJ is not very difficult, only opening it is. As mentioned before, you’re looking for something similar to a cupboard in the woods, painted brown on the outside, on a staff, and tucked away behind a tree.

That, of course, is what makes the Internet so exciting, but it also means that finding older versions of a website is hard. The current push towards the real-time web is making this problem even more apparent. Memento, a project based at Old Dominion University, wants to make it easier to access older versions of a web page without having to go to the Internet Archive. To do this, the project is using a relatively obscure feature of the hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP). The Memento project wants to give browsers a ‘time-travel’ mode. Currently, the only way to find these pages is the Wayback Machine. According to an interview with Memento’s Herbert Van de Sompel, the mission of this project is to make it far easier for users to find older pages without having to go through the hassle of putting the right URL into the Wayback Machine’s search engine. HTTP Content NegotiationTo do this, Van de Sompel and his colleagues are exploiting a feature in the HTTP content negotiation specs that allows them to add date-and-time negotiation to the standard negotiations that already happen whenever your browser connects to a web server. Instead of just asking for the current page, a Memento-enabled browser can also ask for an older version of that page. Some servers and content management systems already offer this feature and the Memento project has developed a demo that shows how this feature would look. According to Van de Sompel, it only takes four extra lines of codes in Apache to make this work. While it is relatively easy for browsers to ask for an older version of a web page, content owners would have to store these older versions of their sites on their servers as well. With static sites, this is easy to do, but today’s highly dynamic web doesn’t make it easy to create an archival version of every page. You can find more technical information about how the team envisions the future of the Memento project in this paper. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…
Long icicles hanging from the eaves make for great ski country advertising, but ice dams that form along the lower edges of a roof may lead to damage as melting water backs up and has no place to go but inside the house. Writing from the Boston, Massachusetts, area, Kevin says in a Q&A post that he is aware of the danger and is looking for ways to eliminate that threat when he puts a new roof on his house. Although the roof has been shaded until recently, the removal of some nearby trees means the two-story house will be in full sunlight during the day. The front of the house faces west.RELATED ARTICLESIce Dam BasicsHeading Off Ice DamsAttic Insulation UpgradesAir Sealing an Attic “I’m looking to re-roof,” Kevin says, “and curious how this might impact my ice damming risk and what precautions or answers I should be looking to get from contractors, i.e. amount of ice+water shield, if needed.” Before the trees were removed, Kevin would occasionally see ice in the front gutter, although the ice did not creep very far up the roof. He also noticed a little ice accumulation in the shadows around the roof dormers. “Again, never water in the home,” he adds, “but occurred under more shady conditions with a lot of snow as well. I probably should have roof raked that area in hindsight.” Does the choice of roof cladding have anything to do with ice dams? That’s the question for this Q&A Spotlight. Solar gain is not the problem Air leaks and a lack of insulation are the principal causes of ice dams, not the type of roof cladding, writes GBA editor Brian Pontolilo. Nor is the amount of sunlight falling on the roof a major contributor to the problem. “Solar gain could definitely cause some ice dams as it happens when snow melts to water and then the water freezes,” Pontolilo says. “But I have never heard of solar gain as a significant cause of ice dams. The most common causes are heat loss through a leaky and/or under-insulated attic or roof. Some roof designs exacerbate the situation, but are not the cause.” There is an exception to that rule of thumb on houses in the Boston area, says Dana Dorsett, although it’s rare and usually insignificant. Here’s the scenario: On houses with deep roof overhangs and a south-facing wall with no soffits, a column of rising hot air on the exterior side of the wall may create a pocket of warm air a few inches out from the wall when the sun strikes it. That possibility, however, looks unlikely given the photo shown at the top of this page that Kevin has provided to GBA. Waterproof the lower reaches of the roof If Kevin has experienced ice dams here in the past, it’s worth adding an extra layer of protection when the new roof goes on, Zephyr7 recommends. A common choice is Grace Ice & Water Shield, a peel-and-stick membrane that many builders in New England use. “When the Ice and Water Shield goes up, you want at least two roll widths worth at the edge of the roof,” Zephyr7 writes. “One roll width isn’t really enough. Make sure the the Ice and Water Shield is installed on top of the drip edge, too. I’ve seen that done wrong lots of times.” And even if the roof doesn’t experience ice dams, Dorsett adds, it’s a good idea to make sure roof valleys get an extra level of waterproofing—30-pound felt is inadequate. Valleys can become major snow-traps in big storms, with snow depth reaching two or three times what it is on the ground. Open-cell foam in the roof Open-cell spray polyurethane foam has apparently been sprayed into the rafter bays of Kevin’s house. Should that, Kevin asks, affect any decisions on applying a waterproof membrane to the entire roof? If there is no ventilation channel between the roof deck and cavity insulation in the roof, the membrane can safely extend up and over the ridge, Dorsett says. But open-cell foam allows the passage of too much water vapor to be completely safe when the roof is unvented. “A smart vapor retarder or vapor barrier latex applied to gypsum board on the conditioned space side of the [open-cell spray polyurethane foam] can substantially mitigate against rot risk on the roof deck,” Dorsett says. “The riskiest section of roof is anything north-facing or otherwise substantially shaded.” Dorsett refers Kevin to a Building American report on moisture-safe unvented wood roof systems. Other problem areas in the roof Kevin adds some details on a few other areas of concern. They include the area above the porch with the dormer, where photos he provides show open-cell foam in the knee wall. Another problem spot is the area between that dormer and the roof bump-out. That’s where a small laundry room is located, with the dryer exhaust running to the porch ceiling. “Not sure on insulation in the knee wall but the room is so small it’s hard to move the appliances around to get back there,” he says. “The washer drain has thickened up once in sub-zero temps as it is unheated. We throw a space heater in there on occasion.” If the area above the porch is a completely trapped, dead-air space, Dorsett suggests that filling it with cellulose would be fairly low risk because it’s on the sunny side of the house. Kevin could do that job himself with a rented blower, but if working from the interior is too complicated or messy, he could drill holes in the porch ceiling to blow in the cellulose. As to the laundry room, Dorsett says a dryer vent passing through an uninsulated space will definitely contribute to ice dams. “It’s important to keep both the dryer vent and drain on the conditioned space side of any new insulation, which may preclude just packing the whole shebang full of cellulose,” Dorsett says. Our expert’s opinion Peter Yost, GBA’s technical director, added this: There are some interesting issues packed into this one! Let’s take them one at a time. The cause of ice dams: Bill Rose has a great section on ice dams in Chapter 4 of his book, Water in Buildings: An Architect’s Guide to Moisture and Mold. Ice dams occur at overhangs in northern climates due to both conductive and convective heat loss, where ducts or chimneys run through attic spaces particularly near eaves and also particularly in roof valleys. It’s the melting above as the conditioned space loses heat and the refreezing at the cold overhang that forms a lens that can back water up the roof. Water can extend sometimes several feet up the roof. Continuous insulation and air sealing at eaves and roof-attic penetrations manages ice dams. If this were my project, I would do a blower door to assess the continuity of the air control layer, particularly at the eaves and at knee walls. Deciduous trees shade even in winter: It still surprises me how much shade a leafless tree can still provide—leafless branches block as much as 40% of available sunlight. See, for example, this research: “Effects of Individual Trees on the Solar Radiation Climate of Small Buildings.” Unvented roof assemblies and continuous peel-and-stick membranes: Many roofers like to cover entire roofs with peel-and-stick membranes to eliminate the chance of backed-up water from ice dams resulting in a leak to the interior. But the building science price of this is essentially no drying potential to the exterior with unvented roof assemblies. I would stick with what the code requires; here is what the IRC 2015 states in section 1.2: “In areas where there has been a history of ice forming along the eaves causing a backup of water as designated in Table R301.2(1), an ice barrier shall be installed for asphalt shingles, metal roof shingles, mineral-surfaced roll roofing, slate and slate-type shingles, wood shingles and wood shakes. The ice barrier shall consist of not fewer than two layers of underlayment cemented together, or a self-adhering polymer-modified bitumen sheet shall be used in place of normal underlayment and extend from the lowest edges of all roof surfaces to a point not less than 24 inches (610 mm) inside the exterior wall line of the building. On roofs with slope equal to or greater than 8 eight units vertical in 12 units horizontal, the ice barrier shall also be applied not less than 36 inches (914 mm) measured along the roof slope from the eave edge of the building.” Sequencing drip edge and ice and water shield: It’s not hard to find strongly held different opinions on how to lap the drip edge and underlayment. Here is what the 2015 IRC states, and this “over/under” method makes sense to me from a water management perspective: R905.2.8.5 Drip edge. “A drip edge shall be provided at eaves and rake edges of shingle roofs. Underlayment shall be installed over the drip edge along eaves and under the drip edge along rake edges [emphasis added].” -Scott Gibson is a contributing writer at Green Building Advisor and Fine Homebuilding magazine.
Meat traders in western Uttar Pradesh announced a strike on Thursday, hours after the State government sealed over 36 slaughterhouses and hundreds of retail meat shops across the State in its continued crackdown.Police said 43 persons had been arrested from various districts for alleged cattle smuggling, adding that 27 FIRs had been registered against 60 persons for the same. On the action against illegal slaughterhouses, Additional Superintendent of Police, DGP headquarters, Rahul Srivastav said eight FIRs had been lodged in Meerut, Varanasi and Bareilly, and two illegal slaughterhouses each clos-ed in Varanasi and Bareilly.Prices goes upThe strike move has led to panic buying, with mutton vanishing from shop shelves and the price of chicken rising sharply. Former Mayor of Meerut and meat exporter Shahid Akhlaq told The Hindu that the State administration was acting “under tremendous pressure from the BJP government to shut down all the slaughter houses — even those functioning with proper papers and records.”The BSP leader said that as a mark of protest on the illegal and illogical way of treating meat traders, the Association of Meat Traders had held a panchayat and decided to go on a complete strike till the administration repealed the “draconian approach of treating legal and illegal meat establishments with the same brush.”Highlighting that meat would not be available in the market as the State government has virtually declared every slaughter house to be “illegal”, Mr. Akhlaq said, “We will meet the District Magistrate (DM) and the Commissioner and ask them to provide livelihood to thousands of people. Then what kind of rule of law is this which looks more like an emergency?”Also Read He said that the “prejudiced way in which BJP government was shutting down all meat establishments, it would not only affect a bulk of India’s meat export but it will also render several lakh people, who are associated with the meat trade directly or indirectly, unemployed. What kind of vikas (development) is this as this is going to cost the leather industry, which is one of the biggest exporting industries in India, very badly”.UP is the largest meat exporting State in India, accounting for annual export turnover of ₹11,351 crore. India’s total meat exports stand at ₹ 26,682 crore.Meanwhile the BJP Mayor of Meerut Harikant Ahluwalia doesn’t want meat to be sold in open market even legally. He and other BJP leaders on Thursday approached the DM against selling of meat in the open market, especially in places which also have temples in its vicinity.This comes a day after three meat shops were vandalised and burnt in Hathras.(With inputs from PTI) No takers for Tunday’s kebabs without beef
Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik unveiled a 19-foot-high statue of Guru Padmasambhava, the founder of Tibetan Buddhism, at Jirang in Gajapati district on Thursday.This 29 tonne stone statue is placed in the middle of ‘Padma Sarovar’, a large tank near Padmasambhava Mahavihara, the largest Buddhist monastery in eastern India. The Dalai Lama had inaugurated this monastery in 2010. Tibetan refugees settled in this region over six decades ago.Historians claim that Guru Padmasambhava, also known as second Buddha, was born and brought up in Odisha before he left for Tibet.A large gathering of Tibetan settlers along with their religious and administrative leaders were present at the function. The statue of Guru Padmasambhava has been sculpted by noted sculptor Padmashri Prabhakar Moharana.Addressing the gathering, Mr. Patnaik said Odisha was once a major centre of learning and practice of Buddhism. It is evident form Buddhist archaeological sites in the State. It is the land that transformed Emperor Ashoka to a benevolent king, said Mr. Patnaik. “Tibetan people of Jirang have become an integral part of Odisha’s socio-economic and cultural life,” he said.During his visit to Jirang, the Chief Minister also inaugurated and laid foundation stones for developmental projects worth ₹81 crore in Gajapati district.
