we air-sealed as much as we could without the assistance of a close envelope that could be pressure-tested with a blower door We sealed the mudsill joints between the foundation and the Zip Wall sheathing using ProtectoWrap TripleGuard sill seal the sheathing joints with Zip System tapes and the top of the wall sheathing to the top plates and blocking with TiteBond acoustical sealant We installed Certainteed Membrain as the air barrier on the ceiling of the second floor and sealed it to the exterior top plates with TiteBond WeatherMaster Ultimate MP sealant Now we’re at the stage where we need a blower door to exhaust air out of the house creating a pressure differential between the inside and the outside This differential will cause air to leak into the house through all the holes we missed during our initial air sealing process so that we can locate them and seal them up And since the house is just framed with the utilities roughed in now is the best time to check for leaks Once the interior insulation and drywall are installed it will be harder to access air leaks buried inside wall cavities or the top floor ceiling Cameron Matt Brandon Derek Ryan Damian and Addison worked with me and Mr Haynes on some or all of three mornings for about 90 minutes each day On the first day the first pass on air-sealing focused on the top floor sealing up leaks in the Membrain and along the top plate of the exterior wall We hit the big leaks Matt used a FlirIR camera to hunt down air leaks that showed up as blue streaks along and between different building materials It was a particularly cold day so the IR contrast was good As Matt located suspect air leak areas the others sealed them up using tape and sealants The second day they looked for more leaks with Cameron handling the IR camera and others feeling with their hands for smaller and smaller leaks Derek and Matt took on the task of sealing the basement slab to the foundation wall Sealing this gap is important not only to stop air from leaking in but also to block radon gas and soil moisture from entering the house Each day the students checked the blower door CFM@50pa when they began and again when they wrapped up as a tally of their progress And each day the numbers fell 390 to 340 to 270 and finally 195 In order to get an accurate CFM reading without the manometer blinking ‘LO’ they had to crank up the fan speed and pressure differential up to 100pa which induced the air leaks to whistle making them easier to locate The students calculated the volume inside the air control layer of the house and from that calculated the Air Changes per Hour (ACH) at 047 — and there are still more spots to air seal Air-sealing is one of the few parts of home building where we can use measuring

CBI probe For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Ashok Gulati | Published: April 13 2015 12:00 am The current set of insurance policies under the NAIS Modified NAIS and the WBIS have failed miserably to protect our farmers Related News Unseasonal rains are breaking the back of Indian farmers The prime minister has taken the first step by deciding to raise the existing norms of compensation by a hefty 50 per cent — from the existing Rs 9000 per hectare for irrigated crop Rs 4500 per ha for unirrigated crop and Rs 12000 per ha for perennial crop Further the compensation will be given to all those who have suffered even one-third loss relaxing the existing criterion of minimum damage of at least 50 per cent Also procurement quality norms for wheat have also been relaxed All these steps are in the right direction and the Narendra Modi government needs to be commended for that But the central question remains: Is this enough to bring back smiles on the faces of Indian farmers And the short answer is “Not really” To understand better as to why Indian farmers will not be happy with this otherwise positive decision of the government consider the following facts In this rabi season the biggest crop that has suffered is wheat The yield of wheat on irrigated tracts is between four to five tonnes per ha Even if one takes four tonnes as the wheat yield on irrigated area at a minimum support price of Rs 14500 per tonne the gross value turns out to be Rs 58000 per ha His out-of-pocket expenses generally are half of this gross revenue One can now see that even a 50 per cent increase in the existing compensation norms of Rs 9000 per ha will not recover the out-of-pocket expenses he has incurred on various inputs How he is going to survive for the next four to six months is beyond imagination No wonder under extreme desperation many of them take unfortunate and extreme steps Obviously compassion and slogans of “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” are not enough We need better insurance policies that are rational and sustainable as business models The current set of insurance policies under the National Agriculture Insurance Scheme (NAIS) Modified NAIS and the Weather-Based Insurance Scheme (WBIS) have failed miserably to protect our farmers The compulsory deduction of premiums from loans to farmers who take institutional credit basically protects the banks from potential bad debts but not the farmers The Modified NAIS and WBIS have very high premium rates hovering around 10 per cent of the sums insured based on three years’ average data collected for the kharif and rabi seasons No wonder as per the NSSO’s situation assessment survey of farmers for 2012-13 less than 5 per cent of farmers (presumably beyond loanee farmers’ accounts) opted for crop insurance With 95 per cent farmers exposed to the risks of nature insurance policies have a long way to go Why are crop insurance premiums so high in India One key reason is the small scale of coverage less than 15 million hectares (mha) in any typical crop season In a country where the net sown area is around 140 mha and the gross cropped area hovers between 190-200 mha insuring only 15 mha or so is peanuts We need a major overhaul of our crop insurance system and this is a good time to do so converting a crisis into an opportunity to set a more robust and sustainable system in place Before I suggest one it will be good to take a quick look at how the world is insuring its crops and farmers from the vagaries of nature Maybe we can learn something from international best practices The US and China are the world’s biggest crop insurers In the US the state supports almost 70 per cent of premiums paid by farmers In China the state used to support 50-65 per cent of premiums which was raised to almost 80 per cent in 2013 So the first lesson for Indian policymakers is that the state will have to pitch in heavily Assuming that we need to have a minimum coverage of 100 mha insurance experts tell us that premiums will fall to less than 5 per cent of sums insured and may stabilise around 25 to 3 per cent Even assuming that premiums will fall from 10 to 5 per cent as the scale of insured area increases from say 15 mha to 100 mha and if the sum insured is say Rs 30000 per ha (Rs 40000 per ha for irrigated crop and Rs 20000 per ha for unirrigated crop with equal weights) the premium required will be Rs 15000 crore for 100 mha covered (or Rs 1500 per ha) If the state is ready to bear say two-thirds of this one-third can be charged to the farmer On a per hectare basis the farmer’s share will be only Rs 500 per ha as premium for an insurance cover of Rs 30000 per ha — and this is very much a workable business model If state governments are also taken on board under “cooperative federalism” the Centre’s share can be reduced to 50 per cent (Rs 750 per ha); while the state government’s share can be 25 per cent (Rs 375 per ha) and the farmer’s 25 per cent (Rs 375 per ha) From where will the state get resources of Rs 10000 crore to insure 100 mha Then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee when he was to construct national highways and introduce the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana put a 2 per cent cess on fuel A similar idea can be used for comprehensive insurance by putting a 2 per cent cess on farm input industry (tractors and farm implements fertilisers pesticides and even agri-credit) and a 3 to 5 per cent duty on exports of water-guzzling crops and produce such as rice sugar buffalo meat etc Private-sector insurance agencies can be invited to bid for the share of insurance at the lowest premium and fastest settlement of claims at the block level without any plot-to-plot assessment Farmers’ accounts can be linked to pixel-based mapping of their fields and satellites can be used with agronomic experts to gauge the extent of damages If the Modi

third sets But he let that lead slip away There was more trouble when Federer served for the match leading 5-3 in the fifth and got broken “He won by the skin of his teeth” Tiafoe said Federer’s initial match point came at 5-3 40-30 in that game but Tiafoe staved that off then broke He produced a cross-court forehand winner at an unbelievable angle to earn the chance before converting it with a terrific forehand passing winner down the line Tiafoe roared and pumped a fist and sprinted to the sideline for the changeover When he had to come back out and serve Tiafoe was a bit flat Federer

this month He sat out the following week’s tournament at Cincinnati Of the first 20 points won by Tiafoe only two came via his own winners a pair of aces The rest were a result of Federer’s miscues _ 12 unforced six forced _ and Tiafoe gladly accepted the first set Tiafoe who is from Maryland and now is based in Florida is ranked 70th and has never been past the second round at a major tournament This was his second match against Federer Tiafoe pushed Federer to a first-set tiebreaker when they faced each other in March at the Miami Masters before losing in two sets “Eventually” Tiafoe said
