The Latest: Bono the Havanese into Westminster final ring

first_img Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditNEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the Westminster Kennel Club dog show (all times local):9:10 p.m.Bono the Havanese will get another chance to become America’s top dog. What makes a championship obedience dog? The Westminster Kennel Club knows it by Heart. A Labrador retriever named Heart won Westminster’s obedience contest Sunday, extending her sweep of the five-year-old competition.With that, handler Linda Brennan says they don’t plan to enter the contest next year. “I think it’s only fair” to step aside, said Brennan, an obedience trainer from Columbia, New Jersey. The competition requires dogs to sit, stay, retrieve a toy on command and stick by their handlers’ sides while walking around other people, among other skills. Finalists used to do complex six-minute routines of their own devising, but Westminster changed things up this year to align more closely with other obedience trials. “He has something that makes people look at him,” handler Taffe McFadden said. “He just stares ‘em down.”8:20 p.m.Bourbon the whippet has won the hound group at the Westminster dog show.Her head perfectly still as she strode the green carpet at Madison Square Garden, the 4-year-old whippet was a quick choice Monday nightight.She advanced to the best-of-seven final ring Tuesday night, when best in show will be chosen. February 10, 2020 1:25 p.m.Thor the star bulldog has taken his first winning steps at the Westminster Kennel Club show.Thor has quite a following after more than 25 million viewers saw him win the National Dog Show televised on Thanksgiving Day.With the crowd cheering him around the ring this time, the sturdy 2-year-old born in Peru earned a best of breed ribbon. He advanced to the nonsporting group judging Monday night at Madison Square Garden.Handler Eduardo Paris appreciated the audience support. Heart, age 7, executed the maneuvers with her tail wagging.“She loves this environment — she really does. She finds it very exciting and very stimulating,” Brennan said. Don’t lose heart, owners of everyday dogs: Even Heart misbehaves from time to time outside the ring.“She has her little naughty habits,” Brennan said with a smile. Bourbon won her breed last year, and now has a chance to become the first whippet since 1964 to become America’s top dog.The Garden was mostly full to see judging in the hound, toy, nonsporting and herding groups.Among the hounds was Relic the Azawakh, a new breed to Westminster this year. A borzoi, beagle and Afghan hound also drew enthusiastic crowd support.3:45 p.m.A rock star as usual, Bono is heading back Madison Square Garden. The Latest: Bono the Havanese into Westminster final ring Silky and flowing, the 3-year-old named for U2’s frontman won the toy group Monday night at the Westminster Kennel Club.Bono finished second overall at Westminster last February, then was the runner-up last November in the National Dog Show.Bono was ranked as the country’s top show dog last year. But the No. 1 dog coming into Madison Square Garden doesn’t always leave on top.Best in show will be chosen Tuesday night. Bourbon the whippet earlier won the hound group to reach the best-of-seven final ring.As soon as the judge pointed to Bono, he jumped onto a podium in the middle of the ring, almost as if declaring he knew where his place should be. “Many people came to see him,” Paris said after the early victory.12:55 p.m.Tiny dogs are having their day at the Westminster Kennel Club show.Pomeranians, papillons and other toy dogs are in the rings Monday, as are terriers and the diverse category of dogs known as “non-sporting” breeds. They range from Dalmatians, bulldogs and poodles to less familiar breeds such as the löwchen, Norwegian lundehund and Xoloitzcuintli — that’s “shoh-loh-eetz-KWEENT’-lee,” a hairless breed from Mexico. Backstretch the bulldog took in the scene as she waited to compete. Just 12 weeks after having a litter of puppies, she was back in competitive shape and ready to show off with owner and handler Valery Scrimo of Saratoga Springs, New York. Backstretch did fine, too, winning a ribbon for excellence. Daytime judging chooses the best dog in each breed. Those winners begin facing off Monday night at Madison Square Garden, where best in show will be named Tuesday night.___12:25 p.m. The Havanese named after U2’s frontman won best in breed at the Westminster Kennel Club show Monday. Immediately after, he was swarmed by dog show judges-in-training eager to inspect the superb example of the national dog of Cuba.“On top of his conformation being so on point with the breed specification, he has the joie de vivre attitude,” handler Taffe McFadden said. “He loves it. He is in it.”Bono was rated the No. 1 show dog in the country last year, but he’s yet to fetch the top prize at the circuit’s two most heralded shows. Bono was runner-up at Westminster last year to King, a wire fox terrier, and also finished second to Thor the bulldog at the National Dog Show on Thanksgiving Day. Thor is among the favorites this year at Westminster, and won his best in breed earlier in the day.Bono’s next step is the best-in-group competition Monday night at Madison Square Garden. If he wins the toy group, another showdown with Thor could be on deck.“Step one,” McFadden said. “Let’s get on that Garden stage again. Let’s see.” Associated Press last_img read more

Exclusive – Focused Balotelli will be world class for Liverpool, insists former Reds boss

first_imgFormer Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier believes Mario Balotelli will be a big success at Anfield – but only if he keeps focusing on football.The Italian joined the Reds in a surprise £16million move in the summer transfer window and netted his first goal for the club in the club’s 2-1 victory over Ludogorets Razgrad.And, when asked if he thought Balotelli was a good signing by Brendan Rodgers, he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I think so, because he is a good goalscorer.“He will have to adapt to his new environment and his new team-mates. I think, for the time being, he knows he can’t waste time on silly things.“He has to really focus on his football because, when he does, he is world class.”last_img read more

One Fine Day With a Ventilation Expert

first_imgI 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.last_img read more

Heynckes not happy with ‘sloppy’ Bayern Munich

first_imgBundesliga Heynckes not happy with ‘sloppy’ Bayern Munich Rob Lancaster 04:49 2/4/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) juppheynckes - cropped Getty Images Bundesliga Bayern München Mainz 05 v Bayern München Mainz 05 The FCB boss saw his side extend their lead at the top of the Bundesliga on Saturday, but had more praise for the home side than his own team Jupp Heynckes was critical of Bayern Munich’s second-half display in their 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Mainz on Saturday.With nearest rivals Schalke losing to lowly Werder Bremen, the Bundesliga leaders extended their lead at the summit to 18 points thanks to first-half goals from Franck Ribery and James Rodriguez.However, Heynckes was far from impressed with what he witnessed after the break at the Opel Arena, the visitors wasting a number of clear opportunities to increase the final margin of victory.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The experienced coach was far more positive in his assessment of the home team though, praising Mainz – who dropped to 16th due to Werder’s surprise win – for their efforts in defeat.”My team played really well before the break and got off to a good start [in the second half], but we failed to take our chances and extend our lead,” Heynckes told the club’s website.”You have to admit that Mainz also had good chances in the second half. You have to take into account that teams surpass themselves when they’re in the relegation battle. You’ve seen it in the case of Werder and also today regarding Mainz.”We had five or six gilt-edged chances after the break. If we had taken them we could have easily run down the clock. Instead, our opponents had hope and chances again and again.#M05FCB— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) February 3, 2018″We were too sloppy and not as strong as in the first half when it came to transitions from attack to defence.”Taken altogether the victory was deserved but compliments to Mainz for their display.”last_img read more
