If you live in a humid climate (for example, in Florida), you need an air conditioner that does a good job of dehumidification. But if you live in a dry climate (for example, in Nevada), dehumidification is almost irrelevant, because the outdoor air is so dry. In Nevada, all you need is an air conditioner that lowers the temperature of the air in an energy-efficient way.In theory, air conditioner manufacturers could tweak the design of their equipment to focus mainly on lowering the indoor air temperature (a process known as sensible heat removal), or they could produce equipment that devotes a lot of energy to dehumidification (a process known as latent heat removal). Unfortunately, though, air conditioner manufacturers don’t offer special equipment designed for dry climates. Instead, they sell the same equipment in Nevada that they do in Florida.Most residential air conditioners sold in the U.S. are designed to operate at a sensible heat ratio between 0.75 or 0.80. (The sum of the sensible load and the latent load is the total load; the sensible heat ratio is the sensible load divided by the total load.) If you live in a very humid climate, this sensible heat ratio might be too high. If you live in a very dry climate, this sensible heat ratio is definitely too low.John Proctor is the president of Proctor Engineering Group in San Rafael, California, and a nationally known expert on residential cooling. Proctor has always been irked by the failure of air conditioner manufacturers to address regional needs. “Air conditioners are designed and installed the same for Florida and Arizona,” says Proctor. “It makes no sense, since Florida and the Southwest have different climates and different cooling needs.”To improve the efficiency of air conditioners in dry Southwestern states, Proctor has… This article is only available to GBA Prime Members 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.

U.S. Air Force [Muppets Treat Kids to Cope by Louis Briscese, June 6, 2016, CC0]By: Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFTSesame WorkshopFrom Big Bird and Cookie Monster to Bert and Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, and Elmo, Sesame Workshop has provided more than 150 countries with the unique mission of helping kids grow stronger, smarter, and kinder. Through an array of platforms including television, film, home videos, books, magazines, and community outreach, Sesame Workshop has been a staple in many homes and communities.Sesame StreetIn 1969, Sesame Workshop revolutionized children’s television programming by releasing the very first episode of Sesame Street on November 10th. Their mission with the Sesame Street series was “to use television to teach preschoolers, and give them the skills that would ensure a successful transition from home to school.” With nearly 50 years of programming under their belts, Sesame Street has become a staple in the homes of many families, including my own, both as a child and now as a parent.Sesame Workshop has always possessed the ability to understand and address the needs of children and their families. One poignant example of this is their recognition of the needs for resources to support military families. In 2006, “Sesame Workshop launched the bilingual (English/Spanish) multimedia outreach initiative Talk, Listen Connect: Helping Families During Military Deployment (TLC). Not surprisingly, this initiative revealed a need for more; resulting in the production of Talk, Listen, Connect: Deployments, Homecomings, Changes (TLC 2) in 2008 and Talk, Listen, Connect: When Families Grieve (TLC 3) in 2010. If you would like to learn more about Talk, Listen, and Connect, you can click here.Sesame Street for Military FamiliesIn addition to all of the amazing resources that Sesame Workshop has provided through TLC, they have also created Sesame Street for Military Families, which is a free, bilingual website with information and resources on a variety of topics pertinent to military families including deployments, homecomings, injuries, grief, and self-expression.Sesame Street’s commitment to Military Families is evident in this site that includes videos, downloadable PDFs, helpful links, mobile apps and more! So, if you haven’t already discovered all of the possibilities through this resource, start your journey now by visiting http://sesamestreetformilitaryfamilies.org/Also, be sure to visit the Kids Serve Too! webinar series page to learn more about the collaboration between the Military Families Learning Network and Sesame Street for Military Families where you can explore resources and strategies related to community violence, military relocation, military caregiving, and young children with special needs. This series occurs throughout 2019 and continuing education credit opportunities are provided for free. Sign up for our Kids Serve Too! email list to stay in the loop!This post was written by Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFT for the MFLN Family Development Team.

A largely unknown Manjit Singh made headlines on Tuesday as he clinched gold in men’s 800m at the Asian Games 2018. Manjit also led a rare one-two for India as his fancied teammate Jinson Johnson bagged silver.It was India’s only second one-two at the Asian Games as Ranjit Singh and Kulwant Singh had won a gold and a silver at the inaugural edition in New Delhi in 1951.Manjit’s gold was also the first after Charles Borromeo’s feat in the 1982 Asian Games.Manjit was far from being a medal contender in the 800m event but he brought home the third track and field gold for India after shot putter Tejinderpal Singh Toor and javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra’s heroics.Asian Games 2018 men’s 800m: Manjit Singh wins gold, Jinson Johnson gets silverHowever, it wasn’t just the tag of underdog that threatened his chances of winning a medal in the event but also the journey he was forced to make to the Games.The Asiad gold was Manjit’s first international medal. He also ran for India in the 2010 Commonwealth Games and finished last. His last national title came in 2013 and that helped him to earn a stipend with ONGC. The organisation in 2016 decided against extending Manjit’s contract as his career stalled, according to ESPN India.WHAT A RUN! WHAT A BRILLIANT RUN!Manjit Singh had to come from the 4th position to win GOLD Medal in last 50 meters.With a timing of 1:46:15 in 800m men’s event, he was simply sensational! Very proud! #KheloIndia #AsianGame2018 #IndiaAtAsianGames pic.twitter.com/mZf6yaCnPOadvertisementRajyavardhan Rathore (@Ra_THORe) August 28, 2018″On March 31, I was told my sports contract with ONGC would not be renewed,” Manjit told ESPN India. “They told me I wasn’t having any performance of value and that I was too old to improve. No one believed in me then. Very frankly I was depressed.”Asian Games 2018: Manjit Singh proud to win gold for IndiaDetermined to bounce back, Manjit then approached army chief coach Amrish Kumar, who decided to take Manjit under his tutelage.”He was desperate. He said ‘Sir, I don’t have a place to go. Please help me out.’ I had seen him as a junior and I knew he had the talent. Of course he was running very poorly then. Only about 1:52:00,” Kumar said.ASIAN GAMES 2018 FULL COVERAGE | MEDALSManjit then trained with Kumar at the national camp at Ooty, while his father, who is a dairy farmer, bore the expenses for his out-of-job son.The success didn’t follow immediately as he failed to qualify for Asian Championships 2017 and 2018 Commonwealth Games 2018. Manjit then qualified for Asian Games after finishing second at Inter State Athletics Championships in Guwahati.What a sensational run from #ManjitSingh & #JinsonJohnson to win a Gold and Silver Medal respectively for India at the #AsianGames2018 800m mens finals. Well done! pic.twitter.com/DkZ0WhckpqSachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 28, 2018He narrowly qualified for the finals at the Games in Indonesia as the 8th fastest in the heats. But final was for which Manjit waited this long. With 50m to go and three athletes ahead of him, Manjit displayed some unimagined burst off pace. In the process, Manjit also bettered his personal best by 9 seconds as he clocked 1:46:15 to clinch the yellow metal.It was dream come true for Mannjit but he’s not ready to rest on his laurels, just now. His next target is the Olympics gold.”Expected to win a gold. My preparations were good so expected to beat not just Jinson but others too. We are good friends, Jinson is a good athlete. It’s a gift for me and more importantly it’s for my country. I want to win gold in Olympics as well,” Manjit said.
Primera División Marcelo: Real Madrid feel like we’re sinking Stephen Crawford 23:03 1/14/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(4) Getty Primera División Real Madrid Real Madrid v Villarreal Villarreal The Liga champions sit 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, with no upturn in fortunes in sight for the capital club Real Madrid defender Marcelo has said that the players feel like they are “sinking” as the club were subjected to yet another poor result at the weekend, a 1-0 loss to Villarreal.The aptly nicknamed Yellow Submarine snatched all three points on Saturday through a late strike from Pablo Fornals, moving Javi Calleja’s side to just one point behind Los Blancos courtesy of their first ever win at the Santiago Bernabeu.It was not for a lack of trying on Madrid’s part, however, with the hosts having registered 28 shots – a record for a Liga side this season – while Cristiano Ronaldo had a free-kick turned onto the woodwork.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Left-back Marcelo was left understandably frustrated with the result, which leaves his side 16 points adrift of Liga leaders Barcelona, telling reporters after the game: “It’s one of the worst situations I’ve experienced here.“We’re trying to play good football, move the ball around and score goals, but it’s not coming off.“It’s how it looks from the outside – we’re sad, angry and we feel like we’re sinking.”Under-fire boss Zinedine Zidane was also at a loss for words after originally describing the situation as “f***** up”, insisting that he had no explanation as to why the Spanish champions could not find the net.“We don’t deserve this, we think we played well but the ball just didn’t want to go in for us. I can’t explain why,” the Frenchman said.“It was a hammer blow but we are going to turn things around on Thursday [against Leganes in the Copa del Rey].“It might be a mental aspect that is stopping us from winning. When we are on a bad run there are always negatives to pick up on.“We shot on target but didn’t score, when there were rebounds we were not on the end of them. This can wear you down mentally.“We did everything possible to win and I honestly cannot reproach my players for their actions. I am not happy but nor do I feel beaten.”
