I thought about doing the fist pump around the bases, but we’ll wait until we get to the World Series for that, hopefully.”Turner drove in every run for Los Angeles, going the other way for a tying single in the fifth before sending a long shot to center field off John Lackey in the ninth. A fan wearing a blue Dodgers jersey reached over a railing to catch the ball on the fly.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogTurner’s second homer of the postseason ended another dramatic night for the Dodgers, who remained unbeaten in these playoffs and moved within two wins of their first World Series appearance since 1988.“It’s very cool, and J.T., we were talking about it in there after the game,” manager Dave Roberts said. “Twenty-nine years to the day. It was special. Our guys feel it.” Game 3 in the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Midseason acquisition Yu Darvish starts for the Dodgers against Kyle Hendricks.Yasiel Puig drew his third walk of the game leading off the ninth, and Charlie Culberson bunted him to second. After losing pitcher Brian Duensing struck out pinch-hitter Kyle Farmer, Chicago manager Joe Maddon went to the bullpen for the 38-year-old Lackey, who pitched on consecutive days for the first time in his 15-year career.Lackey got the call over All-Star closer Wade Davis, and the veteran starter walked Chris Taylor on six tense pitches.Turner stepped up and ended it with his fourth career playoff homer. He’s been at his best in October, batting .377 with 22 RBIs in the postseason.“We’ve been doing it all year long,” Turner said. “We’re never out of a game. As long as we have outs left, we’re going to keep fighting.”Completing the poetry of the moment, a fan in a Chase Utley jersey in the center-field bleachers caught the ball in his glove.ADVERTISEMENT View comments MOST READ Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Javier Baez, the other co-MVP of last season’s NLCS for Chicago, got to third base in the third with one out, but also was stranded.UP NEXTCubs: Hendricks dominated Chicago’s playoff opener with seven scoreless innings against the Nationals, but yielded four runs in four innings during the team’s wild Game 5 victory in Washington.

Addison Russell homered in the fifth for the Cubs, who are down early in this rematch of the 2016 NLCS. Chicago won that series in six games and went on to its first World Series championship since 1908, while the Dodgers have been absent from the Fall Classic since 1988.Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen got the victory with a hitless ninth despite hitting Anthony Rizzo on the hand with a one-out pitch. That ended the Los Angeles bullpen’s impressive streak of 22 straight Cubs retired to begin the NLCS, but the Dodgers have thrown eight hitless and scoreless innings of relief in the NLCS.After a collective offensive effort drove the Dodgers to a 5-2 win in Game 1, Turner did it all in Game 2. He has 10 RBIs in the Dodgers’ five postseason games, getting five in the playoff opener against Arizona.Jon Lester yielded three hits and five walks while failing to get out of the fifth inning in the shortest start of his long postseason career, but the Dodgers couldn’t take advantage of a rare shaky night by the Cubs’ star left-hander.Rich Hill struck out eight in five more impressive innings for the Dodgers, but he was pulled for pinch-hitter Curtis Granderson in the fifth in a debatable decision by Roberts.Russell was off to a 4-for-22 start in the postseason with nine strikeouts before the slugging shortstop put a leadoff homer into the short porch in left field.Turner evened it moments later by poking a single to right after a leadoff double by Culberson, the Dodgers’ improbably successful replacement for injured All-Star shortstop Corey Seager.The Dodgers chased Lester with two outs in the fifth, but reliever Carl Edwards Jr. came through after several recent postseason struggles, striking out pinch-hitter Chase Utley and then pitching a strong sixth.Lester was the co-MVP of last season’s NLCS, winning Game 5 at Dodger Stadium and yielding two runs over 13 innings in the series. He had nothing near the same success against the Dodgers’ revamped lineup in this one, issuing four walks in the first four innings and repeatedly escaping jams.Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward held up Turner in the third when it appeared he could have scored from first on Cody Bellinger’s double to the gap.last_img read more

Coega crude refinery ‘on track’

first_img20 February 2008The Petroleum, Oil and Gas Corporation of South Africa’s (PetroSA’s) plans to build a crude refinery at the Coega industrial development zone outside Port Elizabeth have been given a boost, with the announcement on Monday that the state-owned oil company has been chosen as the preferred investor for earmarked land.“Planning for the new refinery is well under way,” PetroSA CEO Sipho Mkhize said in a statement on Monday. “Design is well-advanced and we are in discussion with several local and international parties who have expressed interest in possible financial and operating partnerships.”According to the company, a final decision on the investment, said to be worth about R39-billion, will be made around 2010, once the technical and commercial aspects have been clarified.Mkhize said that while it was being built to secure future fuel supplies in the country, the decision to locate the refinery at Coega was not solely based on commercial criteria.“This location also considers national interests such as alternate strategic access, port decongestion, wealth-generation equalisation and potential environmental impact,” Mkhize said. “PetroSA’s planning includes the provision of new oil terminals and upgrades at Cape Town, Mossel Bay, Port Elizabeth, Durban and Gauteng.”Project MthomboDubbed Project Mthombo, the proposed crude oil refinery is expected to produce about 250 000 barrels of fuel a day and is due to be operational by 2014.“Project Mthombo will be one of the biggest post-2010 investments in South Africa,” Mkhize said at the time of the project’s announcement late last year. “It is estimated that the project will generate about 5 000 direct jobs during operations and 20 000 indirect jobs.”The project, he said, would also significantly improve South Africa’s fuels import bill, serving to “redefine South Africa’s energy landscape.”Based on the current growth rate of demand for fuel, Mkhize said that building a new crude oil refinery within the next five to seven years would be fully justified.“The demand for automotive fuels in southern Africa already exceeds the local production capacity, and South Africa is becoming increasingly dependent on the import of refined automotive products.”Coega IDZAccording to PetroSA, the Coega industrial development zone (IDZ) was chosen as the site for the proposed new refinery after a thorough and independent screening of five potential locations around South Africa.The oil company said that Coega offered world-class infrastructure, was ideally located near growing demand centres in the Eastern and Western Cape and had sufficient land available for secondary industries to develop around the refinery.PetroSA added that it believed that strong and complementary partnerships would be required to carry out a project of such a size and nature, both to mitigate any project related risk and to enhance the commercial and financial viability of the project.“These partnerships will be established across the crude refining value chain, from the supply of crude oil, through the erection and operation of the refinery to the distribution and marketing of the automotive products,” Mkhize said.“PetroSA is already in discussion with various potential partners to help bring Project Mthombo to fruition.”SAinfo reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Reftract House: A 2009 Solar Decathlon Contender

first_imgIt would be understandable if participants in the Solar Decathlon feel the pressure of rising expectations – pressure to outdo the work of previous teams of faculty and students who have already put enormous energy and analysis into the 800-sq.-ft. net-zero-energy dwellings that became their Decathlon entries.The Santa Clara University undergraduates who make up one of the 20 teams competing in the 2009 Solar Decathlon, for example, might even feel a little extra pressure to measure up to SCU’s performance in the 2007 Decathlon, where the team entered the competition as an underdog but ended up winning third place overall.The good news is that, competitive as it is, the Decathlon also is an excellent teaching tool whose past entries can be analyzed, and improved upon, by current contestants.To that end, SCU, located in the San Francisco Bay Area city of Santa Clara, has been developing its entry for the 2009 Decathlon in collaboration with design, art, and architecture students at the nearby California College of the Arts.The SCU/CCA team aims to produce a “bold and luxurious home that demonstrates green living does not require a compromise in lifestyle,” the team says in its mission statement about the project.Called Refract House, the project derives it name from the notion that the SCU/CCA team is attempting to alter the path of net-zero-energy home design for the better, an idea that’s represented visually by the building’s bent-tube layout and technically by the way its layout controls the entry of light into the home as it wraps around a central courtyard.Ramping up for OctoberConstruction of the house is well underway, and the team has been busy not only overseeing the process but escorting visitors on tours of the building site, which is on the SCU campus. (Tour hours are noon to 1 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 3 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays; call (845) 323-8029 for information.)Of course, the Refract House’s big moment will be at the Solar Decathlon, scheduled for October 8 through 18 in Washington, D.C., where the home will be reconstructed on the National Mall, along with 19 other fully operational contest entries, for viewing by visitors and judges.Each Solar Decathlon team competes in 10 areas: architecture (for a maximum of 100 points), market viability (100 points), engineering (100 points), lighting design (75 points), communications (75 points), comfort zone (100 points), hot water (100 points), appliances (100 points), home entertainment (100 points), and the newest category, net metering (150 points).The 2009 field of competitors includes 16 teams from schools in the U.S., two from Canadian universities, and two from European universities.A biennial event sponsored by the Department of Energy, the Decathlon attracted a record 200,000 visitors in 2007. The house built for that contest by SCU, which doesn’t have an architecture school, did not do well in the architecture category. But it did land perfect scores in the hot water and energy balance categories, and ended up with a total of 979.959 points out of a possible 1,200 (the first-place winner, the team representing Technische Universität Darmstadt, scored 1,024.855 points).Decathlon teams play with their hearts as well as their heads. The DOE’s Decathlon website points out that SCU’s 2007 entry almost didn’t make it to the National Mall when the truck transporting the house broke an axle on its way to Washington. The house’s arrival was delayed by three days, but the SCU persevered.last_img read more

Video Tutorial: Create an Action Promo With After Effects
