Chrome Coming to webOS?

first_imgWe’re getting the first glimpses of today Google’s Google I/O developer conference and already some exciting news is leaking from within the walls of the conference center. According to Fortune’s Seth Weintraub, we should expect to see Chrome for Palm webOS in the very near future.Weintraub gave everyone a quick glimpse of the showroom floor this morning on YouTube and at the end of the video, he notes that Palm appears to be there at the Google Chrome booth. Chrome is currently only available for the PC, Mac and Linux and if we’re expecting it to come out for webOS and finally hit the mobile scene, then we can only imagine we’d be seeing a version released for Android, the operating system for Google’s own Nexus One as well. The iPhone and iPad version, however, we don’t think we’ll hold our breath waiting for. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … In the world of desktop browsers, Chrome has been steadily gaining on competitors Internet Explorer and Firefox in recent months.

Insulating Behind Kneewalls

first_img This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member? Log in 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.center_img Although I wrote a 2012 article for Fine Homebuilding on ways to insulate the cramped attic behind a kneewall, I’ve never written such an article for GBA. So it’s clearly time for a comprehensive article on the topic.A kneewall is sometimes defined as “a short wall under a sloped ceiling.” A typical kneewall is between 3 and 5 feet high. In most cases, a room with a kneewall has a sloped ceiling that extends from the top of the kneewall to normal ceiling height—about 8 feet off the floor. At that point the sloped ceiling usually transitions to a horizontal ceiling.This description applies to the top floor of many one-and-a-half-story homes (like Cape Cod homes) or to a typical bonus room above a garage. Kneewalls can also be found on the top floor of some three-story or four-story buildings.The illustration below shows the various components I’m talking about. (Note that the word “kneewall” refers to the short wall—not to the cramped attic behind the kneewall.)If you are insulating a house with kneewalls, you face an important decision: Should the triangular attics behind the kneewalls be included in the home’s conditioned space, or should they be excluded?For a variety of reasons, the best approach is to include these triangular attics within the home’s conditioned space. Bringing the triangular attic into the home’s conditioned space makes the task of air sealing much simpler, and is the only acceptable method to use if the triangular attic includes ducts or plumbing pipes.If you go this route, you’ll need to insulate along the sloped roof assembly, all the way from the area above the top plate of the exterior wall (at the floor of the attic) up to the “top attic” above the horizontal ceiling… last_img read more

Contractual sanitation worker dies inside Wazirabad drain

first_imgA 37-year-old contractual sanitation worker suffocated to death after he got trapped inside a drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Wazirabad on Sunday. Teams of the National Disaster Management Authority, the National Disaster Response Force and the Delhi Fire Service were deployed to trace the worker after he went missing. His body was pulled out late in the evening. According to the police, a call was received at 3.15 p.m. about a sanitation worker, hired to clean a clogged drain, being trapped inside. A police team rushed to the spot and also alerted the fire department. When fire department personnel failed to trace the missing worker, the NDRF and the NDMA were called in.Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Nupur Prasad said the worker, identified as Krishan, was a resident of Sri Ram slum cluster. “We will register an FIR under relevant sections of the IPC at the Wazirabad police station. We are trying to trace the contractor,” she said. The workers told the police that they had been hired by a contractor, identified as Anil, at ₹400 per day and had not been provided safety kits. The cleaning work started around 9 a.m. with two workers entering the drain at a time. “Around 1.45 p.m. Krishan and I entered the drain and on the way back I found that he was missing. I tried to locate him but could not. I immediately informed the other workers and the contractor,” said Manoj, adding: “When we failed to trace him, we informed the police. But by the time the police reached the site, the contractor had fled.” “The drain is full of toxic gases, our oxygen cylinder ran out in just two hours. How could the workers clean the drain without any safety gear?” asked a NDRF man, who wished not to be named.last_img read more
