14 April Simon Magakwe became the first South African to break the 10-second barrier for the 100 metres at the South African Athletics Championships in Pretoria on the weekend. Magakwe had the crowd on its feet when he stopped the clock in 9.99 seconds to claim his sixth national title. The time was subsequently rounded down to 9.98 seconds.‘I wanted it so badly’ “From the start I was aggressive, I just wanted it so badly. The last 30 metres I pushed so hard,” Magakwe told the South African Press Association (Sapa) afterwards. “What is exciting is my coach [Eugene Thipe] is from South Africa, and not from Jamaica. Everything we do, we do in South Africa.” Magakwe had narrowly missed the national record he shared with Johan Rossouw of 10.06 seconds in the semi-final by one-hundredth-of-a-second. With his record-setting run, he raced past the time he had shared with Rossouw, who set the national record in 1988. Second-placed Akani Simbine also bettered the previous mark, in a time of 10.02 seconds, while Emile Erasmus was third in 10.23 seconds. “The sad thing is I can’t remember a part of it [the race],” Simbine told Sapa “I am just happy that I did my best and ran my PB [personal best]. “I didn’t expect to go even that close (to breaking through 10 seconds), so I am pretty happy.”The start of big things? Olympic 200 metres finalist Anaso Jobodwana watched the race from the stands and afterwards went down to the track to congratulate Magakwe. He said he hoped Magakwe’s barrier-breaking run would lead to South African athletes repeating that effort. “I am really glad for [Magakwe] and Akani, and I am happy for the way it has turned out,” Jobodwana said. “It shows us that we have the potential and we can take it not just from the 100m, but to the 200m, and the 400m, like we’ve already been dominating the 800m.” Jobodwana, who owns a best time of 10.10 seconds for the 100m, added: “In no time we could have something like Jamaica, because we have the talent, but it is just that athletics doesn’t have the appeal right now.”National record With athletes boasting far less impressive personal best times, South Africa won the 4 by 100 metres title at the 2001 IAAF World Championships in Edmonton, Canada, in a national record of 38.47 seconds. That record still stands, but could be under threat if the country’s top national sprinters get together for a record attempt. Apart from Magakwe (9.98), Simbine (10.02) and Jobodwana (10.10), national universities champion Henricho Bruintjies ran a time of 10.17 seconds in the semi-finals, giving South Africa a foursome that could be among the world’s leading quartets.

Philips CFLs last a long timeI’m proud to say that for the last 16 years, the original Philips CFL light bulb that I bought in 1999 has been on a motion sensor in my back yard, extremely exposed to the elements, protecting us from marauding raccoons. It is still going strong. In this next wave of LEDs, my money’s on Philips — for their commitment to quality and durability. In 1999, I went through the back service doors of Wolf Electric, a local supplier, and fumbled my way along the poorly lit, uneven floors to drop $37 and tax for one light bulb: a compact fluorescent light (CFL) made by Philips.For me, this was the start of energy-efficient lighting. That moment in time might even have represented the apogee of CFLs. Store shelves today are littered with crappy CFL lights that aren’t dimmable, are filled with hazardous mercury, and include ballasts that give off so much waste heat that the white plastic base quickly gets cooked to a yellow crisp as the bulbs sputter to an early death. So much for energy conservation. BY GREG LABBE Air Leaks in Homes Insulated With Spray FoamOrigami-Inspired HomesPastiche Architecture RELATED ARTICLES Martin’s 10 Rules of LightingRethinking Recessed LightingLED Filament BulbsFuture of LEDs: Lower Cost, Higher EfficacyAre LEDs Worth Their Extra Cost?LED Lighting Getting Better and BetterGBA Product Guide: LED Lighting No need for an airtight hat in the atticLotus LED Lights (Surrey, B.C.) has been retailing some exciting low-profile pot lights that could substantially reduce the fussiness of installing pot lights.It should be noted that good quality LEDs typically have aluminum heat sinks, and for good reason: the heat needs to dissipate. So take this next sentence with a grain of salt: These new lights could potentially eliminate the need for a large housing box that punctuates the air barrier system and projects into the attic, disturbing the uniform layer of continuous insulation and leaking conditioned air like a sieve.Sadly, many electricians don’t understand the need for air sealing. These new faux-pot lights might be able to help them in new construction, because many models install directly in the drywall and are plugged into a proprietary low-voltage junction box. That simple!What’s really exciting is that these lights may offer the opportunity to easily eliminate 90% of the air leakage that occurs through existing pot lights by simply retrofitting these new types of LEDs. Coming from a guy who made a living by sending other guys into hot, itchy attics to air seal the backs of pot lights — the LED product from Cree shown in the photo at the top of the page seems like a no-brainer retrofit solution. Greg Labbé is co-owner of BlueGreen Consulting Group, a high-performance home consulting firm that works with architects, builders, and homeowners to optimize the energy performance of new and existing homes through detailed energy modeling and site testing. Suddenly, LEDs have arrivedBut hang on… Is it just us, or did 2015 usher in a new era of LED lighting? It seems that LEDs have jumped out of the dark ages by offering dimmable features and lighting systems that tie into home automation and can change hue in response to commands from a smart phone. These LEDs produce a truly beautiful light that doesn’t oscillate — light that is good enough to permit one to read a book (that is, a durable, sharable, battery-less device made of bound paper, having stories printed in ink). And let’s not forget the fact that these mercury-free lights could be substantially more durable than CFLs.As readers may imagine, pot lights (also known as recessed can lights) installed through the air barrier of a home’s topmost ceiling have been a big pet peeve of mine — not because I don’t like the lights, but because they kill home performance. The great news is that some of the new LED lights that have flooded the market recently might be able to significantly reduce heat loss due to air leakage.
zoom The latest shipping market combination between COSCO Shipping Holdings and Orient Overseas International Lines (OOIL) would become the world’s third largest container carrier if finalized, according to shipping consultancy Drewry.The entity, which would have a combined fleet of 400 vessels operated over a much expanded network, with capacity exceeding 2.9 million TEUs including orderbook, would overtake its partner in the Ocean Alliance, CMA CGM.On July 9, COSCO Shipping Holdings and Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) made a pre-conditional voluntary general offer to acquire all issued OOIL shares at an offer price of HKD 78.67 (USD 10.07) in cash.The price represents a 31% premium on Friday’s closing price of HKD 60 and values OOIL at around HKD 49.2 billion (USD 6.3 billion). On the completion of the deal, COSCO will hold 90.1% while SIPG will hold the remaining 9.9% stake in OOIL.From a hardware perspective, OOCL has an owned-fleet of 66 containerships aggregating around 440,000 TEU. It is a young and modern fleet with an average age of 7.1 years and average nominal capacity of 6,600 TEU. It is introducing its first 21,000 TEU vessel with five more to deliver and options for another six which it could easily exercise.“Operationally, fitting OOCL into the bigger company should not be too difficult as both OOCL and COSCO already belong to the Ocean Alliance that operates mainly in the East-West container trades,” Drewry said. The biggest impact will be felt in Intra-Asia, where both carriers already have a large presence, while the footprint in the Asia to Middle East trade will also rise significantly.From a marketing perspective the acquisition of OOCL “will enable COSCO to broaden its customer base, having previously being perceived, rightly or wrongly, as China-centric.”Earlier reports suggested the valuation of the deal would be closer to USD 4 billion, which would be similar to what CMA CGM paid for NOL/APL. That always seemed undervalued considering OOIL’s better financial performance and reputation, plus the improving market outlook. However, at USD 6.3 billion “the price does seem a bit steep.”According to Drewry Maritime Financial Research, OOIL’s book value stood at USD 4.5 billion based on FY16 numbers, meaning OOIL was able to extract a sizeable premium.However, Drewry said that, notwithstanding any potential roadblocks to future M&A, the consolidation that has already occurred, plus much brighter market prospects and the moratorium on new ships, offers carriers a golden opportunity for far greater profitability in the near future. With fewer carriers, that in time will become financially stronger; the pendulum is swinging back towards those that have grown to survive.
