Prada, Marfa. Photo by geocacher wininiGeocache Name:Prada, y’all! (GC1W1KC)Difficulty/Terrain Rating:2/1.5Why this is the Geocache of the Week:Rodeo Drive, Fifth Avenue…middle-of-nowhere, Texas? If you’re trying to figure out what these places all have in common, it’s something you would probably never expect: Prada. Yes, the luxury clothing brand you can see fancy people around the world wearing. There’s one thing different about this Prada store, though: it’s never open and it only has right-footed shoes. Just outside of Marfa, Texas, artists Elmgreen and Dragset collaborated with multiple people, including Miuccia Prada herself, to create this piece of installation art. While the shoes and handbags in the store are pretty, we think the smiley you earn for finding the nearby geocache is way cooler.# of Finds:109# of Favorite Points:30What the geocache creators, The Stray Gatts, to say:“We had just visited Marfa and were continuing west when we ran across this amazing, surreal place in the middle of the desert. We were stunned that there was not already a geocache there so we just snuck one in. We had no idea that it would become as popular as it is, but in retrospect it is such an unusual site that it makes sense. We’re honored by the positive reviews and favorites, but we are most happy that we have been able to help a few other people discover it. I’d love to give a huge shout out to the amazing geocache community: “Hey Geo-Brothers and Sisters… CACHE ON!!”What geocachers are saying:“This was my favorite cache of the whole trip. I love Prada and I love Marfa (it was my first visit) with it’s great stories, food and cute hotels. What a great idea, to put a cache here. I am sure we would have missed this if there was not a cache.” – Mrs_HiDude“We just had to check this one out! Never would have believed this. Just another reason to get out and geocache. Thanks for putting a cache here.” – DaveandDeb“This was the highlight of the whole trip. The wife loved it! Found the cache quickly, then hung around to snap a few photos. What a riot!

I had the pleasure of attending an all-day seminar in Atlanta recently by Gord Cooke, one of the rock stars of the building science community. I have known him for a while and heard him speak a few times in the past, but was unaware of his close connection with the ventilation industry.His approximately 30 years of involvement with the design and sales of Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) gives him a wealth of experience in ventilation system design. The title of the seminar was quite a mouthful, “Multifamily Whole-house Ventilation and Helping Builders Gear-up for the 2030 Challenge,” and while multifamily ventilation was discussed, the discussions where much broader, and in my view, more interesting that the title suggested.Venting about ventingAs I continue to learn about building science, one issue that continues to bother me is the ASHRAE 62.2 standard, and some people’s insistence that every building must have equipment installed to provide the calculated ventilation rate per that standard.I have always felt that ventilation is a moving target, and the amount necessary to keep a particular home healthy is very subjective. If the homeowners smoke, have wall-to-wall carpeting, have indoor pets, use toxic cleaning products, and fry a lot of food, then 62.2 may well be too little ventilation. But if another homeowner doesn’t wear street shoes in the house, has no carpeting, uses benign cleaners, and doesn’t have pets, then 62.2 may well be too much ventilation.I felt that my views were reasonably well supported in this presentation – Gord suggested installing a system that can provide ventilation at the rate required by 62.2, but include a user-friendly control that allows them to vary the total ventilation rate for maximum comfort. You can’t force people to ventilate, but you should provide them the ability to do so.Getting perilously close to information overloadBy the end of the day my head was filled to overflowing with information, including formulas for calculating the impact of ventilation on heating and cooling loads (too complicated to include here), appropriate types of air intakes (wide screens provide better airflow, insect screens tend to clog too easily), installation and commissioning techniques (use appropriate equipment to balance ERVs and HRVs after installation, some manufacturers include pressure taps right on the box), and obscure factoids (good ventilation reduces the effect of hangovers).Two of tidbits that came up in discussion helped to reinforce some of my theories. First, exhaust ventilation in humid climates usually does not create as much of a problem with moisture infiltration into wall cavities as people think. Second, even in Canada, it is hard to justify blowing insulation into closed wall cavities – because of the the overall expense and the potential for moisture problems. I have long believed that insulating older, previously uninsulated wall cavities can create more problems than it solves, and it was nice to have some reinforcement on that subject.Agreeing to disagreeAs the day wrapped up, Gord discussed the fact that he often found himself in disagreement with other ventilation experts he respects and considers his friends.This supports my belief that the ventilation is still very much a work in progress. There are some who lean towards the maximum amount of ventilation, and others who are more flexible in their approach. It will be interesting to watch the experts’ opinions as they evolve along with codes and regulations over the next several years.

Every political leader, no matter how charismatic, has that one man or woman to depend on for everything. For Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, it’s Tommy Desfosses. And while the PM himself is quite the globally popular dapper, it’s his assistant who’s getting some love on the internet these days.Of course Desfosses supports every move Trudeau makes, but there’s more. Not only does Desfosses travel around with his leader, he also carries stuff for him! Now that’s real support.Also Read: Justin Trudeau manspreading on the cover of an in-flight magazine is the best thing you’ll see today Kevin Doyle, a political editor, recently shared a photo on Twitter of Desfosses carrying all of Trudeau’s gifts–while the PM himself went around hobnobbing with people like he’s supposed to be doing.This poor guys has to carry all Trudeau’s gifts.

Cheteshwar Pujara scored his 17 Test hundred, Virat Kohli fell 18 short of his 26th hundred and Rohit Sharma hit his first Test fifty outside Asia since 2015 as India took a stranglehold over Australia on the second day of the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.India declared on 443 for 7 – their highest score away from home in 2018. At stumps, Australia were 8 for no loss, trailing by 435 runs.It was another solid batting performance by India. On the opening day, Mayank Agarwal had stolen the limelight with his fluent 76 on debut. Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli had taken India to 215 for two at stumps – it looked like a promising position to be at.The MCG pitch had drawl flak from several experts – they called it a road. The deck appeared to be slow and rather easy to bat on. However, on Thursday morning, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli, well set as they were, batted with caution.The pair added only 62 in the first session – more importantly, India did not lose any wickets against a tiring but disciplined Australian bowling attack. The Aussies gave little away but could not stop Pujara from scoring his second hundred of the series – also his slowest ever.At the other end, Virat Kohli was lumbering along. The India skipper is generally an aggressive batsman but he chose to bide his time in the middle. He was 69 not out at lunch and a promise of another century was real.But it was not to be.advertisementKohli appeared to battle a sore back. His sharp singles seemed to hurt him. Australia sensed Virat Kohli was in trouble and they tested him with the short ball. One from Mitchell Stac was dispactched to the fence as Kohli moved into the 80s. But the very next ball – another short one directed just outside the off-stump – had Kohli playing at it. Aaron Finch took an easy catch at third man and Virat Kohli was gone for 82.Pujara fell soon after for 106 before Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma joined forces.Rahane came out with intent and he raced away to 23 off 30 even as Rohit chose to take his time. The two added 62 for the fifth wicket before Nathan Lyon got his only wicket when he trapped Rahane LBW with a ball that kept too low.Rohit stepped on the accelerator as a declaration seemed imminent. Rishabh Pant walked out and also took his time before perishing for a 76-ball 39. And once Ravindra Jadeja fell to Josh Hazlewood with the Indian score on 443 for 7, Virat Kohli knew that was enough.Sitting on the edge of the boundary, Kohli ordered his batsmen to walk off as his bowlers took a shot at Australia’s openers. Marcus Harris and Aaron Finch survived the six overs but they will have their task cut out on a slow pitch where Jadeja and Hanuma Vihari could come into play.
Today is a great day. It’s Friday, but, more importantly, Season 3 of House of Cards has been released.
